So, I have been using both Ola and Uber a lot recently, for very different reasons. After enjoying the better cars and service with Uber, it seemed like Uber was on constant 'surcharge' mode. Even late morning and early afternoon rides had 1.5x to 3x 'surcharge' turned on, so I decided it's time to go back to good old Ola for a bit. Two of my recent Ola rides had rickety cars with ACs not working and one of the drivers complaining that he hadn't been paid by Ola for 2 months. Now, that worried me a little bit, because I do want Ola to succeed. The company has gotten into unrelated areas like food delivery. I can only imagine investor pressures and fundraising dynamics behind such premature diversification. The problem of customer service unfortunately is not something that just gets 'solved'. It's a day-in-day-out problem. Take your eyes off the ball and your customers go elsewhere. Get your core business processes right first, that itself will 'expand your market' more than the new products/markets that seem necessary - Comment

From the Editor's Desk
What divides us as a whole often unites some of us. This seems to be a core strategy for the BJP today. On the one hand, there is an encouraging decisiveness in pushing through economic reforms. Perhaps, Mr Modi likes to travel abroad, but yes, he has brought India into the world's investment radar. That is absolutely a good thing. However, within India, the unwillingness to take other parties along is a dangerous sign. The GST bill and land bill are stuck primarily due to partisan politics. Even more dangerous is the silence when the bhakts and Hindutva goons take law and order into their own hands. Mr Jaitley, these are not mere distractions as suggested by you, but damaging to society as a whole, where upto 25% of the population is silently waiting for you and your party to fail. We are an emotional people, it is important that the leadership recognize these emotions. That is the only way your development plans will turn into reality - Comment
