ADVERSE Police Verification Report

I had filed my passport application in November 2012 in Mumbai.
I completed my police verification in January 2013.
Since then the status on the passport site has been "Passport application is under review at Regional Passport Office."
I sent a lot of mails to the Min of Ext Affairs and the Mumbai RPO.
I also filed an RTI on May 21 for my passport being delayed.
Today (10-June) I get a mail that my Police Verification report has been received as "ADVERSE" and that I need to contact my passport office for reverification/further course of action.
There is no reason why might report might be "ADVERSE" as during the time of verification I provided all the documents asked and the cop seemed satisfied.
Please help me if you have been in a similar situation or know someone who has been in thi

Bangalore to OOTY by train: Advice needed

I am planning to travel to ooty in a week or two for a weekend. I will leave bangalore on Friday evening by train, take the toy train from Mettupalayam from Ooty spend a day there and then return next day by toy train. My main priority is to be able to take the Toy Train to ooty. On seraching the railway time tables, this is what I found
Bangalore-Coimbatore Kanniyakumari Express Departure 9:40 PM, Arrival at Coimbatore 5:20 AM
Coimbatore to Mettupalayam - Blue Mountain Express Departure 5:15 AM Arrival 6:15 AM
This means unless my train is early or BMS is late I wont be able to catch the train to Mettupalayam. Which also means, I will miss the Toy train to ooty which leaves Mettupalaym at 7:10 AM
Now of course there is an option of taxi from Coimbatore to Mattupalayam, but that will

Weather in Uttarakhand in September?

I am considering a trip to Uttarakhand in September. The main attraction would be hiking to pilgrimage sites (including Char Dham and Hem Kund) and mountain views. A simple question: how bad can the weather get in September? Is the monsoon over by then or - if not - how often does it rain?
I suppose that the monsoon reaches also the upper parts of the valleys, so no part of the state is shielded from it by the mountains?
I would appreciate your advice or personal experience of trips in September. Thanks in advance!

May I reuse Tata photon + dongle after 10 months? - Coverage

Dear IndiaMikers, I have two questions about Tata Photon + :
First - In May 2012, in the Tata shop in Lajpat Nagar*, I bought a dongle and a prepaid service Tata photon plus (around 1000 rps per month till December). They told me - you can bring it in your country and reuse it when you will be back. Is it the truth ? Will I have to pay something to reopen the account ?
Second - I will go in different places : Amarkantak, Ambikapur, Delhi, Gwalior, Hyderabad, Mumbai (Lonavla probably) and Pachmarhi. If I reopen my account (in Lajpat probably) with my "old" dongle (is it possible ?) can I use it in each of these places and will I find a Tata shop easily ?
Thanks for your answers,
* Internet connection (even video on Skype) was almost perfect in Jangpura, Lodhi Estate and Defense Colony. But

Passport issued on post verification but Police verification is adverse

Dear All
I applied for appearance change and removal of ECR in my passport on 9th April in my RPO. I was issued a new passport with a new passport number on post verification status. I thought post verification means now there is no need for any police verification and went to delhi for visa work. I got a call from police station regarding passport verification but could not turn up due to busy schedule. I had to leave for kuala lumur on 29th May due to join my class so I inquired my RPO people and they suggested me to go kuala lumpur and apply for a re-verification upon my return.
Now I am in Kuala Lumpur and I have to return to India in July month.
will immigration department impound my passport at the airport?
If I escape form immigration department and apply for a re-verification will

Tamil language course books

I still have got a year to my trip to India (Tamil Nadu and Puducherry area). I'm planning to be a volunteer there, and that's why I'd like to learn some Tamil. Not to some unbelievably grand extent, but to formulate some sentences, learn basic of grammar, vocabulary and script. During my stay in Tamil Nadu I'm planning to undertake a Tamil course, but before that I'd like to get some knowledge about it.
There are several course books i.e. at Amazon - I'd like to know whether you have some recommendations? Did you learn Tamil from some of them? Do you have any other suggestions for learning Tamil?
Thanks for the answers in advance!

Police verification in tatkal passport

I have applied for passport under tatkal and within 4-5days will receive the passport. The issue is that when the police verification will be in process (after one month), I will be out of the country and won't be available at the current address.

Song Translation

I had seen a similar post for a song translation and was hoping someone can translate this song for me to English:
Apni dhoon mein rehta hoon
mein bhi tere jaisa hoon
O pichlee rut ke saathi
Abki Baras mei tanha hoon,
teri gali mein sara din
dukh ke kankar chunta hoon
mera diya jalaye kuan
mei tera khali kamra hoon,
Apni leher hai apna rog
dariya hoon aur pyaasa hoon
Aati rut mujhe royegi
jaati rut ka jhonka hoon

Hi All,
I am new to this forum and would request your views, suggestions, guidance for our forthcoming trip to Kumaon Hills in end May.
