How to close Paytm FASTag

Recently I closed Paytm FASTag account. It is very simple and sharing the steps here.

1. Open Paytm app in your mobile.

2. Click on your profile image (top left corner)

3. Click on "Help & Support".

4. In the next screen, select Fastag.

5. In the next screen, click on "Need help with non order related queries? Chat with us".

6. Now a chat window opens up. In this screen select "Queries related to updating FASTag Profile".

7. In the next option, select "I want to close my FASTag".

After this follow the directions asked by the chat such as choosing your vehicle number and other details. Once you complete the steps, it will show that the closure is successful.

After the successful message, you can remove your tag from your vehicle and destroy. Also, you can apply for a new FASTag from any other provider. Hope this information helps.

Europe Tour with Kesari - Photos

In the previous post (click here to see the review), I shared my review about Kesari Tours and Europe trip. In this post, I'll share the pictures in the order of the visit.

Europe Tour with Kesari

The Europe trip was always in our minds as a wishlist but it took more than 10 years to execute. When the right time arrived, my wife and I started planning for the same. There were many questions like should we go on our own or through a tour operator, should it be a customized trip or a group tour etc. We spent a lot of time researching for whatever information available so that we can make a decision. Finally we decided to go on a group tour with Kesari Tours. In this post, I’ll share the information on what to expect in a group tour and how was our experience with Kesari and of course on the places we visited. As far as places are concerned, I’ll try to share more pictures with less description. I hope this will provide enough information for anyone who is looking for a similar tour.

Immune by Philipp Dettmer - A Book Review

I was scrolling through my Twitter timeline and a person had tweeted about a book titled "Immune". What caught my attention was this book is authored by the same person who is the creator of "Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell" YouTube channel. Having subscribed to this channel, I know how good this creator/ team is. In a series of videos, he explains complicated concepts in a simple and effective way with the help of amazing animations. I checked about this book in Amazon, and I got to know that this book is about Immune system - what exactly the Immune system is, how immunity works in the body and what it takes to develop good immune system.

A day with an Astronomer at IIA

This post is written by my son Supreet. In his own words...

The IIA (Indian Institute of Astrophysics) had organized a program called “A day with an astronomer” at Bengaluru for students studying in class 9 and 10. The student will be paired with an astronomer at IIA and will be shadowing the scientist throughout the day. The students can observe what the scientist is doing, ask questions, have a discussion with them etc. In this post I’ll share my experience of this program and what I learnt.

Experiencing India's First Dark Sky Reserve

It was 1:30 AM in the last week of September. Location: Hanle, a remote place in Ladakh.

It's an open area and pitch dark. It's very cold and the temperature reads -2°C. The wind is only making it worse. The 6 layers of clothing is not helping much! With eyes, nose and mouth exposed, the cold is taking a hit on the face.
