Bitti often stopped communicating, then when I would reach him, he would promise to get started on the work in a few days. I gave him lots of slack because delivered one small piece of work quickly, and because I was aware of the severe weather and floods that were happening in parts of India. He seemed honest about his skills and knowledgeable in areas that I was familiar with.
The last I spoke to him was by Skype on Saturday 6/29 when he again promised to start my project on Monday.July 1. Today is July 14 and I have not heard from him since, and since I see that he is bidding on a new project just four days ago, I know he has not be disabled by flooding, yet he has not made any attempt to tell me he will not do the project.
It is very unprofessional to repeatedly promise to do work and then disappear. I was reqd to eval him on quality and expertise, so I had to give him lowest marks since he did not do the work I he promised.
