Running on Indian Standard Time ... but worse
The green carpet is a joke
Promised but never delivered
I've also heard several horror stories in the past weeks and months about contest winners who were contacted to be told they won but then didn't hear back on receiving their tickets and weren't given all that they were promised, such as covering travel expenses and accommodations. And then there are the folks who bought presale tickets at Tampa's India Festival last October for $1,800 or more (back when the awards were planned for three days in June at the Tampa Bay Times Forum) and then couldn't get a straight answer out of organizers about their tickets.
Sounds a lot more like a scam, right?
And guess what: I don't mind calling out the rudest of the bunch.
