Today, my phone was idle and I didn't receive any WhatsApp notifications from friends. One of my friend sent an SMS saying, "Hey dude! I've sent a photo on WhatsApp, please upload it on your Facebook as you have more friends.". As he sent me a text message, I opened WhatsApp for checking new messages. I found that WhatsApp failed to connect server. The network status showed "Server is connecting..." for long time. After making a lot of Google search, I found that WhatsApp has been blocked on BSNL.
