Customs in Delhi

A friend of mine recently ordered a consignment from abroad and found, on its arrival, that it had been torn and that two of the three products were missing. The letter accompanying the parcel enumerated the three products that were ordered, but only one item remained inside. The postal worker who brought the parcel to him said that it was a case of theft and he could not be held accountable, and complaints ought to be lodged at the customs headquarters.

So, as you can see, in our eminently civilized country, you should not make the mistake of putting anything through the customs service. Do not ever make the mistake of ordering anything online that requires international shipment. The corrupt officers who hold customs jobs in our country cannot restrain themselves from tearing into the property of other people and pouncing on whatever they can get their grubby paws on like a pack of dogs.
