my sympathies go to you Tarun. Must be very frustrating indeed.
The UK strangely is not part of the Schengen agreement. I'd recomend you go to the embassies involved (Holland, Belgium, Germany etc. etc.) and get your visa's direct from them... turn around times should be much quicker.
I recently called a friend who was recovering from a minor operation in hostpital, and found that my call to him was being charged at BT premium rates. Utterly outrageous.
Hope this helps somehow !
