Yes, I was able to reach Tata (they actually have done something very good I encourage
others to follow, see below) and they resolved the issue within 15 minutes of my phone
call.

What Tata has done with as6453.net is that there is a website there which provides
NOC contact info and the phone is answered by semi-clueful people who upon realizing
that the caller is clueful and has an actual legitimate problem are able to rapidly transfer
to clueful people with the ability to fix things.

I applaud Tata for:
	1.	Making their NOC contact info easy to find from traceroutes. It should have
		occurred to me to try www.as6453.net first, but, instead I went digging through
		whois and when that proved fruitless, tapped NANOG. My bad.

	2.	Having people answer the phone (promptly) who are able to do the right
		thing with the phone call.

	3.	Having engineers readily available for calls that are escalated immediately.
