By the way, this is not the first time when WhatsApp went down. Looks like people have already started texting a lot on the occasion of new year, and WhatsApp is down. However, some people in India smell something fishy- they suspect that it may be something related to blackout as SMS won’t work on 31st Dec and 1st January in India and telecoms are behind this evil work. However, I checked out and no, it’s not them as people are thinking. Even on Wi-Fi it isn’t working.
