Received first somewhat-largish order delivery of 9 well printed & bound copies of iami1.wordpress.com blog book from Pothi.com

Today (14th May 2018) I received 9 well printed and bound book copies of iami1.wordpress.com blog book from Pothi.com. I had placed the order on their web order page, https://pothi.com/pothi/book/ravi-s-iyer-ultimate-existential-reality-answer-vedanta-god-and-science, on 7th May, which is one week ago. Given below is a pic of those copies.

This was delivered by India Post's Speed Post service. I was not informed of the tracking number by Pothi.com. Pothi.com's status for this order just shows 'Processing' (even now). I expect they will update the status on Pothi.com tomorrow, to delivered and also provide the tracking number.

Going by the tracking number on the parcel and using  https://www.indiapost.gov.in/VAS/Pages/TrackConsignment.aspx, I found that the item was booked at Dandekarwadi S.O. on 12th May at 10:48 (AM), and delivered (to me) by Prasanthinilayam (Puttaparthi) S.O. on 14th May at 14:22 (it was delivered slightly earlier than that but perhaps the record got updated a little later). Note that Dandekarwadi S.O. seems to be in Bhiwandi, Thane district (near Mumbai) which is where the big Mumbai printer that Pothi.com uses, has one of their printing units (offices/factories - I am not getting the right word).

With this delivery of 9 copies, after the first single (sample) copy delivery on 5th May (ordered on 27th April), I now have confidence in the ordering, printing and shipping processes of Pothi.com and their printing partner. I had also ordered one or two copies to be delivered to few close friends/relatives of mine in India. The initial three such orders have been delivered. That too has helped in strengthening my confidence level with Pothi.com and its printing partner. This seems to be a professionally run business.
