      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description
    Endorsement - Intriguing stories by established or rising writers in which technology is examined to connect, question, provoke and entertain. - Tabish Khair, author of How to Fight Islamist Terror from the Missionary Position.

    We live in a world where battles are fought in cyberspace, relationships are forged through voice - Over - IP and declarations of love are made through speedy text messages. Pertinently then, the stories in Only Connect weigh the deep impact of technology on our lives, relationships and the ways in which we perceive each other and ourselves.

    While Meenakshi Bharats B Wid U Soon shows how, despite the distance between them, technology helps a couple share the birth of their baby, Janhavi Acharekars Sneha, 25 highlights the hoax of digital ties as a young girl is conned by a cyber-lover. The sinister face of technology is alarmingly demonstrated by Malik Sajads graphic tale, Facebooked, Chandani Lokuges Trial by Media and Kiran Nagarkars The Race for Arms. Technology changes the language we speak, as dramatized in Neelum Saran Gours A Software Sonata. It colours our perception of lived experience, as shown by Sharon Rundle in Fugue for Guinea Pigs. And, in fact, technology even irrevocably changes the way we connect with art as Yasmine Gooneratne describes in Barry Meets His Muse.

    A collection of twenty riveting stories, Only Connect traces this brave new world we have come to inherit.
