News Alerts!!!

"Hello! Now get all the news happening around you at your handset with Vodafone News Alerts. Subscribe @ Rs.30/month subscription and get daily 2 alerts."

"Kya ghat raha hai aap ke aas-paas, paiye Sthanik,rashtriye aur Anter-rashtriye khabren News Alerts se matra Rs 30/month.Dial kare *123*35# "

I get these messages every now and then on my mobile and now I wonder what kind of News alerts I ll be getting if I go for the subscription.How can they send everything that goes around me? Noone knows me.Even most of my neighbours have no idea who I am, what I do?Even I dont know much about them.All I know is what car they have and how many members are there in their family.Will these news alerts tell me more about what they do? Bcoz I strongly believe that me and my handset stay around or at least near them.

Ok if the news alerts are not about these issues then what will they tell me?I wonder how can just 2 alerts/day carry everything that happens around me and my handset.Dpo really mean it when they said "All the news"??? The news channels are now working 24-7 for creating top news,finding breaking news and creating the news.But I feel bored by their work.The newspapers carry so many pages with news but all I am interested is the so-do-ku games,a few comic strips, pics of actresses n cars and a few Ads.
But Vodafone? They send it everyday,thinking finally someday I ll decide to give them 30/month for trying to satisfy me what these news channels and newspapers have failed to do. "Sthanik,rashtriye aur Anter-rashtriye khabren!!! "
Plz do tell me what does "sthanik" means? if someday I to pay that subscription....
