Hand-set......................Head reeling!

On your mark, get set, ready, GO. But sometimes you can't.

I am talking about the remote hand-sets that are used to operate the window and
split air-conditioners.

Custom cannot stale their infinite variety! They come in all sorts of colours, shapes
and what have you.

As long as they work everything is fine. But the moment a handset stops functioning
you are in for trouble. I have come across rare instances of these handsets being lost or being broken due to mishandling by children. If the problem is due to drained batteries, feel blessed. Else you could be in trouble. It is very difficult to repair these hand-sets.

To cap it all, if your unit is more than two or three years old, chances of your getting a new remote is very remote indeed! In this era of use and throw probably the manufacturers
deliberately go in for such a tactic. For want of a nail, the war was lost. Here for want of a remote the unit might have to be lost!

I wish someone designed a universal hand-set which could conveniently operate at-least the basic operations of any unit. Then we can rightly say: What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander!
