Canvas Tab P666

Last day of the year. New year is just few hours away now. I have planned to do a lot of things in 2015. So there are new year resolutions not resolution for me. I am a avid blogger so one of my resolutions is to write atleast 100 blogs posts in 2015. I am a more of on the go writer. If I have a time or I am getting bored then I start writting anywhere. I do a job in New India Assurance and my posting is done hundred kilometres away from my home. So I travel a lot by train daily. I have made a habit to write in train by now. If I have no work in office I write there as well. So I don't really sit on a computer or a laptop to write blog posts.

I write most of the blog posts on my mobile only. Like this one I am writing this post while travelling in train on my mobile phone. So to complete the target of at least 100 blog posts in 2015 I am looking for a tablet for quite sometime now. Basically I need a tablet for bigger screen, multitasking, faster processor, better resolution and a latest android version. I checked out lot of tablets and among them some tablets were really good and some were not at all good. The tablets which were really good were going way out of my budget and the tablets which were not good fitted in my budget easily.

Then I came across Micromax Canvas Tab P666 which has all the features which I need in the tablet. it has 8 inch long screen, 1.2 Ghz intel atom processor, 1 GB RAM, 800 x 1280 screen resolution, sleek design, 5 MP rear camera, 2 MP front camera and HD recording. Moreover it comes with Android's latest version Kitkat. It is very good for the gamers as it supports seamless gaming (I can rediscover gamer in me again). You can enjoy movies on its IPS display and intel graphics media acceleration. You can enjoy photography and vediography as well with its camera. It is a complete package as it has something for everyone. Moreover it is not that that expensive.

I think my search of a tablet ends with this one as it has I want and the best part is that it prefectly fits in my budget. It will make my writing easy and better. It will also make my writing smooth on the go. It will also help me to entertain myself with movies and games. I can enjoy my clash of clans on it pretty well. Lastly it CAN discover gamer in you, it CAN discover photographer in you, it CAN discover movie buff in you, it CAN discover fashionable in you and it CAN discover multi tasker in you. After all it is a CANVAS. I am again saying best thing about it is that all its features comes under my budget. To know more about it click here.

Well Groomed Face.

As BlogAdda has allowed to write two more posts. I am ready with another story. If blogadda has given me few more days I would have written but now I will be able to write only one more post. Anyways let's come on to the topic #WillYouShave.

Now it is a stint of my cousin's engagement. At that time I haven't shaved since a week as I was planning to go french so I decided to be in bearded face for ten to fifteen days. Nani, Mama and Mami had liked a girl for my cousin. So he was going to meet her that day. He went in the morning and I was sleeping at that time. I woke up after he came back and mumma broke it to me that he has said yes.

I was really happy. I straight away went to meet him and congratulate him. He told me the whole story. He told me about her views and nature. In all he liked her and he was happy. After meeting him I went to meet Nani to ask about the date of engagement and all. Nani told me that engagement is today only and she ordered to shave.

Everybody got busy in the preparation of engagement and I also became busy in making sure that I am well equipped for the event tonight. I decided to shave in the evening around couple of hours before the event. In the afternoon we were having fun as the family got together after a long time. Nani joined us too.

I was hiding the face from Nani as she doesn't like unshaved faces around. Finally Nani saw me and I was scolded again by her. She loves me a lot and pampers me like a kid. I promised her to shave by the evening. After Nani it was Masi's turn and somehow I convinced her also that I will be shaved in the event. I went home and shaved my face. I stuck to french cut.

At the event in the evening everybody all the Mamas, Mamis, Masa, Masi and most importantly Nani liked me in french cut and complimentex me about the same. I was really happy. See how well groomed face changes everything. Till the evening I was being scolded for unshaved face and in the evening I was praised for well groomed face.

Australia. Whenever I hear that word first thing comes into my mind is all those beautiful cricket grounds around the country. I used to see Australia from the viewpoint of cricket only till I came across the 'Come Alive in Melbourne' videos featuring Tanmay Bhatt and Rohan Joshi on youtube. I just fell in love with that city after watching those videos. Melbourne is considered as the most livable city in the world. Those videos were enough for me to know that why Melbourne is most livable city in the world. There are five places which I loved in Melbourne and became my five reasons to fall in love with that city. Here they are:

Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG)

Let's start with Melbourne Cricket Ground (you can't expect anything else from cricket fanatic). MCG is one of the biggest ground and one of the most beautiful cricket stadiums in the world. As a player I want to clear those huge boundaries of MCG. I just want to have a go at bowlers so that I can whack few big sixes there. I know it is going beyond the boundaries now. Ok as a cricket fan I want to cheer for Indian players from its stands. It is hosting the world cup final next year and I am already thrilled by just imaging the atmosphere there. Have a look at the beautiful MCG here. Tanmay & Rohan watching Dhoni in action at the MCG

Apart from stadium I want to be at the Members reserve at MCG. I just want to see all those pictures or rather want to imagine those moments which players have lived there. The members reserve at MCG is as beautiful as the cricket ground. I have a video of The Members Reserve too have a look at it here. Tanmay & Rohan visit the members reserve of MCG

Chocolate Factory

If there is anything in this world I couldn't say no to then that thing is chocolate. It is the best thing in this world. I am a complete chocoholic person. There is a chocolate factory in Melbourne where they make every form and flavour of chocolate. The chocolate in shape of every animal. In that factory they pour 400 kgs of chocolate in every 3 minutes. I just want to take a bath in that hot chocolate. I can surely eat or take in all 400 kgs of chocolate. They have made a chocolate village in that factory. I wish I could live in that village. Moreover you can have liquid chocolate shots in that factory. I won't get high even after having 50 of those liquid chocolate shots.
You think I am lying about it. Take a look at it here. A day at Panny's Amazing World of Chocolate

Loch Ard George Beach

I think beach is the place where you can relax and romance as well. Beach is the place where you can release all your stress and enjoy the water and sand. Beach is also the place where you can walk hand in hand with the person whom you love. You and your beloved can have fun in the water there. Melbourne has Loch ard george beach which is amazingly romantic. I (and only I) know with whom I want to walk hand in hand on that beach. You decide it as well. You guys can have a look at the Loch ard George beach here. Tanmay & Rohan on Loch Ard Gorge beach

The Great Ocean Road

The great ocean road is the best road on the planet to drive on. It goes through forest, mountain and ocean scapes. It is a complete joy ride of over 220 kms. If I was in Melbourne I would have had taken out my Jaguar or Land Rover to go on a drive on that road. I love to go on a drive. So to drive on such a road would be a pure joy. You can check it out here. Tanmay & Rohan drive through the Great Ocean Road

12 Apostles

12 Apostles in Melbourne are in the water. So how will you see those apostles? You will see those apostles from helicopter or what we call it a chopper. It is like once in a lifetime experience to see those beatiful apostles from the helicopter. I think it can't be expressed in words. You need to experience it. It is surely in my to do list now. I just hope I go to Melbourne one day to experience it. Check it out how amazing it is. 12 Apostles from the sky

Apart from these five places Melbourne is full of awesome cafes and clubs. Melbourne also has vineyards but I don't drink so I didn't really have any interest in it. Moreover Melbourne is also famous for penguins and lots of other things which you can check it here. Actually not can but you should check it out because it might help you win gift voucher worth Rs. 500.

Yes. You read it right you can win a gift voucher of Rs. 500 just by going through these videos. Ok let me make it more clear just tell me "which of these places would you want to visit in Melbourne and why?" Best answer to this question will win the voucher of Rs. 500. So see the videos, choose your places, give the answer and win.

We are stuck between two cultures

Today India is divided among two types of people. One type of people are those who believe in Indian culture and thinking while other type of people are those who believe in foreign culture and thinking.

Indian culture and thinking is all about togetherness, being there for each other always, we first, one marriage and being loyal in that, great upbringing and mannerisms, restrictions etc. While foreign culture and thinking is all about me first, 2-3 marriages and getting children in all of them, not so great upbringing and mannerisms, freedom etc. Now normally people who are more than 20 years older than us i.e. poeple above 40 believe in Indian culture and thinking (all the above 40 people who don't believe in Indian culture are NRIs mostly) while most of youngsters of our age believe in foreign culture.

I am the one who believes in Indian culture and thinking. I will try to show the comaprison how I would have been in both the cultures. I am born and brought up under great parents. Since childhood I have learnt discipline, honesty, punctuality, being there for one another in every situation, values of a family and staying loyal and truthful in every relationship. Due to this I have developing into a person who is honest, punctual and disciplined. I always think of we (family) first rather than me first. I am very loyal, honest and truthful in every relationship I am in. I value my parents because of whom I am in this world. I believe in togetherness. I will be happy with one woman (of my choice. Hopefully) in my whole life. I have only adopted one thing of foreign land and i.e. clothing but I am totally Indian by heart.

Now if I was born on foreign land then I would have been brought up in working atmosphere where my parents would give more importance to work than me and my upbringing. My father would have been changed twice to thrice in the span of 15 years. By the age of 18 to 20 I would have had several one night stands. I wouldn't have found girls for love but for sex. I wouldn't have cared whether my parents are living or dying as I would have had nothing for my parents because of whom I am in this world. I would have always thought of me first. Instead of being honest and loyal in relationship I would have cheated and betrayed people around me. I would have been like a wild animal. Unfortunately these days in Indian boys and girls like that life and are adopting such culture very proudly.

Boys and Girls these days take one night stands as a fun which according to me is totally immoral act. You are allowed to marry only once in Indian culture and by doing premarital sex you are cheating that person whom you are marrying to. You have no right play with anyone's feelings. Couples these days kick their parents out of their homes at that point of age when they need them the most. Guys, your parents don't give you the birth to see that day. They sacrifice their needs and lot of thinks for you it is not like foreign countries that they leave you on your own. They are with you all your life. So its your responsibility to be with them and support them in their old age. So stop leaving them on their own in their old age.

It has become like a war between two generations one wants to be with their culture while other wants to adopt another culture but all of us are stuck in between which is even worse. Life has become quite tough to live and it is getting tougher. We don't know whom we should trust and whom we shouldn't. I really don't know where we are heading towards. People whom you love and want to spend your whole life don't want to be with you. Ghor kalyug aa gayaa hai. Duniya ka vinaash ab nishchint hai.


We have got enough proofs that terrorism has its rpots in Pakistan. Taliban and ISI, we often hear these words as the reason behind almost every terrorist attack. Couple of days back Peshawar in Pakistan became the target of taliban. Taliban attacked an army school there just to take revenge from Pakistan. They killed 132 children of that school just to take revenge. I mean where the mankind is heading towards? This inhuman act is unpardonable.

I was watching tv last night and news channels were taking the interview of kids who survived in that attack. One of the boys explained how they attacked. That guy was in so terrified after seeing death bodies that he was unable to collect himself. He was crying and talking. His last words in that interview were 'Insha Allah aage chalke main unki naslein tabah kar doonga.' I will destroy them from their roots in future. I am still unable to understand what those kids did? That they were given the punishment of death. Who gave those terrorists the right to take lives of so many innocent kids. My heart goes out to the families of those kids.

Our Prime Minister offered support to Pakistan in that attack. Two minutes silence was observed in all the schools of India in the grief of children who lost their lives. What Pakistan did in return? They blamed us in return. Musharraf gave statement balming India behind the attack while taliban already broke that its a revenge. It has been three days and Pakistan still not doing anything towards it. Pakistan has ISI which I think is big enough to destroy taliban from its roots but it isn't doing anything. It adds to the proofs that Pakistan supports terrorism. Moreover they have released the accused of 26/11 on bail. They have made the mockery of justice. They don't really care about their own people dying. In this way you guys are not going to rule the world. Pakistan has become the hub of terrorism. So we have to be careful in our lives.

This attack in Pakistan is really a shocker. Death of children is really sad. My condolences are with their families and may their souls rest in peace.

Auto Show 2014

One october morning I was on my way to work. On the way I saw a hoarding of auto show 2014. Frankly speaking I was not expecting it in Ahmedabad as Auto shows and auto expos normally doesn't happen in Ahmedabad. I was riding my bike at 60-70 km/hr so I was unable to read the whole thing. I thought it will be in some other city they have just put the hoarding here.

Next day again I read a bit like sponsors and associates to make sure that it is an auto show not an auto parts show. I was happy to see the names like Maruti Suzuki, Ford and some of the dealers of Ahmedabad. It confirmed that it is an auto show and it is in Ahmedabad only. Along with the sponsors and partners I read the dates as well. It was in last week of november. Being a car lover I was really happy that it was organised in our town. I had read all the things by now only thing I needed was the venue.

Two days later I read the venue while passing from that hoarding and it was Mahatma Mandir, Gandhinagar. How can I forget that all the summits and events like this in Gujarat are organised at Mahatma Mandir. I was even more happy that the venue was Mahatma Mandir as I enjoy driving on the roads of Gandhinagar. I decided to go for auto show on its last day sunday.

I was very excited about it. I thought the timings are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. I planned to go there at 5 p.m. so that I get enough time to see all new cars, new concepts of different companies, how companies are marketing etc. At 3 p.m. one of my friends told me that timings are upto 6 p.m. only. Then I wanted to go at that time only but it was not confirmed yet. I confirmed the time by 4 p.m. that it will close down at 6 p.m. and ordered my friends to leave at 4:30. My excitement was out of control. We left at 4:30 and reached at Mahatma Mandir by 5. I parked my bike and I literally ran into Mahatma Mandir as I thought pretty less time is left that much excited I was. My friends came behind me walking.

Maruti Suzuki

As I entered the first car I saw was swift in Maruti Suzuki's camp. Yes! First camp was of Maruti Suzuki on the left. Apart from swift other cars in Maruti's camp were Ciaz and Alto K10. All three cars were recrntly launched. We all know about new swift and Ciaz. Alto also was re-launched with new improved K10 engine. I was expecting XA Alpha or its another version there as I heard that it is going to be launched in 2015. Neither XA Alpha was there nor any other concepts from Maruti Suzuki was launched in that auto show.

Rolls Royce and BMW

Next to Maruti Suzuki was Rolls Royce. Rolls Royce as a company wasn't there. It was its Ahmedabad's dealer who was representing Rolls Royce. It was the same case with BMW. I do not know which car Rolls Royce has put on display there. I am not a Rolls Royce fan so I don't really keep a watch over its cars. I only know about one or two cars of it. BMW's two cars were there one was Z4 coupe and it was so awesome that I didn't care about the other one. As there dealers were there you can't expect anything new from them.


Ford was there with its Ecosport and Fiesta. Ford has put those two cars which were totally opposite to each other in terms of market share in their respective segements. Ecosport has captured a huge market even though it was launched pretty late in its segmemt. While Fiesta is totally dud in its segment despite of several re-launches. It was disappointing that even Ford didn't turn up with anything new.


Hyundai again was with its Elantra, elite i 20, Verna, Santafe etc. In short there was nothing new in Hyundai's camp as well.

Mahindra and Mahindra

Mahindra was there with its Thar and XUV 500. My two all time favourite Mahindra cars. Apart from that there was also Ssanyyong's Rexton. There was couple of RX series SUVs. Rexton is for the ones who are bored of Ford Endeavour and Toyota's Fortuner. It doesn't mean that Rexton lacks something which Endeavour and Fortuner have but it has come too late in Indian market. Fortuner and Endeavour has established themselves well in that segment.

Honda, Tata Motors and Renault

Similar to Hyundai, there was nothing new in Honda, Tata Motors and Ranult's camp. Though Zest of Tata motors attracted a few on itself because of its features.

Concept Cars

There was only one concept and that was a prototype of 'green sports car' whose developer claimed that it runs 1000 kilometres on its single charge of its batteries. It grabbed all the eyeballs at the auto show. It will cost between 15 - 25 lacs as per it's developer. It was the only highlight of otherwise a dud auto show.

Apart from cars there were bikes as well but again there was nothing new in that too. Before going into this auto show I was thinking that an hour will be very less to explore all the cars but I finished it within half an hour. The much excitement I had before attending it, there was an equal disappointment in me after attending it. Hopefully it will be better next year.

There are two kinds of people in this world lucky and unlucky. Those who are lucky gets everything easily, ride on their luck to achieve what they want. When people have luck with them whether they shave or not but their work will be done prefectly and on time. In short whatever lucky people touch turns into gold. While unlucky people doesn't get anything easily, always want to ride on luck but don't have it to ride on. If unlucky people do not shave due to any problem then their work will not be done at all. In short whatever unlucky people touch turns into mud. I belong to the category of unlucky people.

Again there are two kinds of people those who shave and those who do not shave. People who do not shave are hippies or saints or those who can't afford it or any reason for not shaving comes under people who don't shave. Now people those who shave again in that there are various types. People who shave daily, people who shave every three days, people who shave every five days, people who shave weekly etc. I fall under category who shave and among who shave weekly.

So I am an unlucky guy who shaves weekly. Well groomed face is very important for the guy like me who is not lucky. I have also missed on  opportunities as well because of ungroomed face. I have mentioned couple of them in my earlier posts. Now I make sure to go with well groomed face if I have to go for the interview or anywhere else where I have to leave my impression. I don't have luck to ride on so I don't really rely on it. I only rely on my hard work and it is really important for me that I look presentable in front of everyone. So I make sure my face is well groomed whenever I am meeting someone important or attending some event. I don't want to compromise anymore on anything just because my face is not well groomed. So I shave timely by keeping future event in mind. Now #WillYouShave? Or you will still rely on your luck?

Missed Opportunity 2.0

It was the time I just completed my MBA and I was searching for a job. I got a call from MRF tyres for frontline sales job. It was the MRF I couldn't have got better start to my career. I live in Ahmedabad and first leg of interview was held in Ahmedabad only. I went in there well dressed, with well groomed face and with lots of confidence. My face looked confident because it was well groomed. Clean shave gave the bright confident look to my face.

Four rounds of interview were held here and after the four rounds of interview, I was selected for the last round in Chennai. I was really happy that I made into MRF's last round of interview. Coordinator told me and all other candidates that 'noone really get rejected in Chennai. You just need to be in complete formals there as they don't compromise with clothes, hair and shave. Your real test was taken here and you just needs to look perfect in Chennai to get the appointment letter.' I already started dreaming of working with one of the best companies in the world with those words.

I am kind of person who don't shave daily as the growth of my facial hair is not that much. It is like if I shave today then you will see the hair on my face after two days. My facial hair start showing up on third day. So I planned Chennai interview accordingly. I shaved my face at home and got in the train to Chennai. Next day I reached Chennai and the day after I went for the last round of interview at MRF's corporate office.

I went into MRF's office well dressed with blazer and tie, well polished shoes and making sure that there are no signs of spikes on head but that day my facial hair started showing up. Despite of that no one guessed that I haven't shaved since last 3 days. As I entered in the interview room HR Manager and Vice President Marketing of MRF were well prepared for me and so was I. Interview was going on really well, I was responding them perfectly.

Then they asked 'you haven't shaved today?'

I replied 'no'.


'I don't shave daily. I shave on every fourth day.' Now that was really blunt.

'Then how will you work with us. We won't allow this. We want guys with discipline, we don't want models.' Vice President was on me like a tiger.

'I will start doing it daily.' I tried to defend it.

I was rejected. The whole interview went well except that shaving part. So in this way my ungroomed face became the reason for my rejection in company like MRF. It was a huge setback for me. In the end I consoled myself by saying that I am not alone who is rejected there are 13 more people along with me. The difference was others were rejected with some strong reason while I was rejected just because my face was not groomed well.

Missed Opportunity

I got a new job and I had a training in Mumbai for seventeen days and I forgot my shaving kit at home in Ahmedabad. I didn't even needed it for first three days. So I realised it after three days that I have forgotten my shaving kit at home only. My facial hair started growing from fourth day onwards. I started finding saloon in that area but I didn't found it.

Actually I have skin allergy. So I don't prefer to shave outside as I don't know what kind of shaving creams they use and due to that I have faced some serious skin problems earlier. So after a week I found a saloon to shave my face but the price of shaving there was 250 bucks which I do at home or anywhere with my shaving kit in around 20 bucks. It was way out of my capacity. I was not in financial position to afford it. So I kept shaving aside for that day. From next day I kept roaming in that area to find the saloon and I found one but it was that beneath the tree kind of saloon. It actually was beneath the tree. It was cabin made of sintex material to protect you from rain. I checked out the shaving foam and cream that man was using and it was surely going to affect my skin. So again I gave up the thought of shaving.

It was almost 12 days without shaving my face and the look was getting weird with every passing day. I told the reason to all the faculties in training before they say anything to me. Almost two weeks without shave now. There was icici bank apartment nearby and I saw a man was shaving one of its employees outside the gate of that appartment. So if he can't afford that 250 bucks saloon that how can I? I checked that cream as well but after checking that I gave up the thought of shaving again.

Training ended after 17 days and I had to join the work from 18th day itself. I was posted at the place which was around 100 kms from Ahmedabad. The schedule was like that I reached home at 7 in the morning and I had leave home at 8 so that I can reach the office on my first day well before time to make a good first impression.

I had an hour only and that whole hour went in getting fresh and having breakfast. I had no time to shave. I reached the office well before the time but my face was unshaved. The first comment my branch manager made was 'are you sure you have come to work. It doesn't look like from your face.' So I was unable to make good first impression due to an unshaved face. They say first impression is your last impression. Everything was perfect but just because my face was not shaved I was unable to make good first impression.

India without classroom hunger and illiteracy

I think mid-day meal scheme is the best way to remove classroom hunger from India. It is doing a great job with Akshaya Patra. As a result numbers are improving. Over the years enrolment has increased, absenteeism has decreased and concentration of kids has also increased during the classes. If mid-day meal scheme is able to remove classroom hunger from India then there won't be anything better for India. India is one of the youngest countries in the world and it will be youngest in near future. Imagine our country where no child is hungry, no child is going to work to earn themselves daily food. Every child is coming to school.

If that thing happens that no child in skipping the school because of hunger then illiteracy will decrease in our country. Our entire generation will be educated. Imagine India's future when entire generation is educated. There will be no stopping for us then. It will have potential to become next super power. Actually India will be the youngest super power of the world then. At present there are lots of people who are doing wonders with their skill all around the world imagine the time when an entire generation will be educated.

I hope mid-day meal scheme keep progressing in this manner only. All things mentioned above will be possible if mid-day meal scheme successfully eliminate classroom hunger. Let's come together and help the government to remove classroom hunger from India. Let's all help the government and Akshaya Patra in all possible manner. Let's help poor children in living their childhood. Let's fulfill the dream of education of the children of this nation. Let's remove child labour from our country. I urge to all the people of this nation that please stop taking any sort of work from children. Make all the above mentioned 'Let's' sentences your pledge and take the responsibility to fulfill the right of education of each and every child of this country. Along with that I urge to the parents of poor children as well that please send your children to school. Your child will get nutritious food there and will get good education as well. Education will make your child's future bright and will earn much more in future than what he/she is earning now.

Now let's just hope that Akshaya Patra and mid-day meal scheme remove the classroom hunger and take our country to the position which we discussed above.

Eradication of Classroom Hunger

After bringing every child to classroom, now classroom hunger should be removed. Poor Parents will send their child to school only if they are assured that their child is going to get proper food there. Moreover food is the basic need of any human body. So if a child is hungry he/she won't be able to concentrate on studies. There will be no meaning of educating them. First the need of food has to satisfied to make child focus on studies. So the first focus should be on that every child is coming to the classroom or school then he shouldn't be hungry then only educating them will be fruitful.

To fight classroom hunger government of India established Mid-day meal scheme in 2003. Mid-day meal scheme is serving around 12 crore children across 12.65 lac schools around the country. It is the largest such programme in the world. Before mid-day meal scheme one foundation started feeding the children of government schools. Akshaya Patra was that foundation. The Akshaya Patra foundation was established in 2000 by A. C. Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada and inspiration behind it was one day Mr. Prabhupada saw a group of children fighting with street dogs over the scraps of food. This heart breaking incident lead to the Akshaya Patra foundation. It was established with the vision of "No child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger."

This effort by the foundation started showing the results over a period of time. There was improvement in the health of children. It also increased enrolment and better concentration during class hours. In 2003 Akshaya Patra partnered with government's mid day meal scheme to reach out to more and more children. This partnership works with the objectives like eliminating classroom hunger, increasing school enrolment, increasing school hunger etc. At present Akshaya Patra foundation feeds 1.4 million children in 10000 government schools. Moreover it is working towards mission of feeding 5 million children by 2020.

Just imagine how much blessed we are that we get proper food to eat and good education for our better future. I think there should be lots of foundations like Akshaya Patra. Every child has right to get nutritious food and right to get proper education. Every child has right to live their childhood they are not born to do the work from the age of 5 or 6. So let's come together and help those unfortunate children by doing small contribution. It takes Rs. 750 only to feed a child for one whole year. So go to the website of Akshaya Patra and donate. If you help to feed even a single child that means you are giving a life to that child. If you can't donate then atleast make sure that you don't give rise to the child labour. Come let's give these children their childhood, good education and good food.

Children in India

India is one of the youngest nations in the world and has more than 50% of its population under the age of 25. Unfortunately it is also a nation where illiteracy and poverty is widely spread due to various reasons (but the main reason is corruption). There is huge amount of income inequality in our country and the main sufferers of that are children of our country. Due to income inequality children born in low income families are underweight and suffer from moderate to severe growth stunting as a result of malnutrition. Yes, people don't even one square meal a day here. So for them first target is to earn the proper meal everyday. It's the basic need which is to be fulfilled first then everything else come. So these people send their children to earn rather than to school.

For those people education is like a dream as they can't fulfill the basic needs like food, shelter and clothing. In rural India poor people don't even have access to pure drinking water and proper sanitation facilities. In all these circumstances from where will they think of educating their children. So to eliminate the classroom hunger first you have to bring each and every child to classroom.

To bring each and every child to classroom following things should be done:

In rural India campaigns should be organised to make people understand the importance of education with the help of audio visual effects. Visual effects will create interest in the village people and it will become easy for them to understand that if their children are educated then they will earn much more. While in urban India not much effort will be required as the result of education is already in front of poor people. They are seeing it everyday but still awareness is required.

Child labour laws should be made stricter and punishments for those who are breaking these laws should be more severe. Both parents sending a child to work and the one who is taking work from a child should be punished severely. Elimination of child labour is the first step towards elimination of classroom hunger. Elimination of child labour will bring more and more children to classroom.

Third point is that government schools should not be established in a remote area. In villages or in cities schools should be established in such an area that children can reach there comfortably. School's should be constructed in such a way that children shouldn't like to go home or miss it for even a single day.

Last but not the least people should be made aware of that their children will get a meal in school. There main problem is that only they don't know whether they are going to get the food to eat or not. So if schools are giving one time meal to their child there is no problem for them to send their child to school.

In next blog we will see the steps taken by the government.

I am going to #BlogToFeedAChild with Akshaya Patra and BlogAdda.

Sedan, SUV or MPV?

If you are living in India & you want to buy a car around rupees 10 lacs then there is going to be lots of confusion. There are so many alternatives within that price range that it may create chaos around anyone. There are three main segments in that price range. Sedan, MPV & SUV & in each of them there are some good alternatives. So let's take a look at them one by one.


Let's commence with the sedan, I think top three sedans in that price range are Verna Fluidic, SX4 & Honda City. Hyundai's Fluidic Verna is leading the segment at the moment & it deserves to be on top with the kind of features it has. It would have been perfect car if Hyundai has focused more on its design. Anyways it is still leading the segment. The former leader of this segment is Honda City which has everything good looks, great engine & top of all it was a symbol of high class but now it's no. 1 position has taken by Verna. Due to this Honda launched a new look of the City with its diesel engine & with that City is finding its way back to the top.

My favorite in this segment is SX4. It's a complete package of good muscular looks, powerful engine & nice average. What else you expect from a Sedan. As Maruti Suzuki position it in the market, it's the real man. My preference & recommendation will always be SX4 for a Sedan around 10 lacs.


Multi Purpose Vehicle segment as a whole has come out of nowhere & has grown incredibly well. This type of car is best for bigger families. Top three cars in this segment are Ertiga, Innova & Evalia. Ertiga is a nice looking MPV but its engine is not that powerful, so it will trouble you on upward journeys. Maruti Suzuki needs to work on that of Ertiga. Innova's old look is still around 10 lacs & is still value for money. It's the perfect car in this segment. Moreover, it has ruled this segment for a very long time. Compact SUVs have taken away Innova's market, but it still is value for money car.

Evalia is a newer one in the segment, but it is establishing itself well. Nissan's Sunny & Terrano are performing pretty well in their respective segments. Now if Evalia found its feet among MPVs, it will be a bonus for Nissan. According to me Innova is the best car in this segment.


Companies can't produce SUV around 10 less, but then concept of the Compact SUV emerged in India in 2012. Compact SUVs can be made around rupees 10 lacs. Best Compact SUVs in the market today are Duster, Ecosport & Terrano. Duster was the pioneer in the segment so it got a huge advantage of that & Renault made lots of money from it. Duster is not anyway near to either Ecosport or Terrano but it is much better than Quanto that's why it is good.

Ford Ecosport was about to be the pioneer of the segment, but it came after Duster due to cost cutting issues but it has affected the market of Duster immensely. It has got the looks of SUV, engine of Ford & good average as compare to other SUVs its best. Nissan Terrano is known as Duster based SUV, but much better than Duster in everything except engine as Terrano has the same engine. Both Ecosport & Terrano have made Duster disappear from the market, but still stand out among them in Ecosport. I am still waiting for XA Alpha.

If I have to choose from Sedan, MPV or SUV, then I will go for SUV anytime.

Ab Ki Baar Modi Sarkaar

Who is Sonia Gandhi:
There is officially no Sonia Gandhi. Her real name in passport is neither Gandhi nor Sonia. Its Hedvige Antonia Albina Moina. Sonia is a Russian name and not Italian. However, Antonia is an Italian name and her passport is Italian. Though she has married Rajiv Gandhi* she never accepted change of title officially. ( recall the time of turmoil in Indian politics when Sonia Gandhi was trying to be the prime minister, but ultimately ManMohan Singh became her toy)

*Rajiv Gandhi: Actually Rajiv Khan being the son of Firoz Khan and Indira Priyadarshani. Gandhi is an assumed title to sentimentally lure Indians for their political benefit. They are muslims by religion.

Stefano Eugene Maino is socially the father of Sonia. Her father was a German(hitlers army). When Hitlers army went to russia they were captured and imprisoned. He was captured near St. Petersburgh and was imprisoned for 20 years. But he became a member of KGB and his imprisonment was limited to 4 years. When he came back from prison he gave russian name to his daughters. Social father because when she was born her father was in jail for 4 years. Biological father is unconfirmed.

Paula Maino.
She had 2 sisters in Orbassano, italy
Sonia claims she was born in Besano, near Turin in italy. However, as per her birth certificate, She is actually born is Luciana, in the borders of Switzerland. A resort town for German soldiers during war.

She initially put forward to Indian Govt. that she studied in Cambridge University which proved to be fake. She submitted an affidavit that she studied English in Bell Education trust at Cambridge. Even this was proven to be fake and was found she never got any education after class five. She was a young girl with no formal education living five years in England. How did she support her livelihood for 5 years? Any wild guesses?

She has not given off her Italian citizenship. Indira Gandhi used her power to issue her an Indian Citizenship so that she can join Indian politics. She is holding an illegal citizenship in India. No action is being taken by Home Minister.


Bank Balance:
Rajiv Gandhi and his family owned 2 billion USD in Swiss Bank as of November,1991. Benefitiary of death of Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi was Sonia Gandhi.

Sonia's sister Alexandria(or Anuska) has 2 shops in Italy selling antiques stolen from India. Sonia used her power to smuggle indian artifacts through Air India flights uninspected.

Sonia's son Rahul Gandhi, whose real name is Raul Vinci. He got admitted to Harvard in quota but was thrown off soon because he was incompetant. He has italian citizenship since his mother never gave up her citizenship. He cannot officially become the citizen of india or any politician in india as long as he doesnt give up his italian citizenship. Arrested at Boston airport for carrying 160,000 dollars cash, accompanied by Veronique (spanish). veronique is the daughter of Drug mafia leader.

( Rahul Gandhi ) has also been accused for gang raping ( Sukanya Devi ) whose petition to all courts in India have been rejected due to their political hold and the whereabouts of the family is unknown.
This information is widely available online.

How well this mother - son duo have used the name 'Gandhi' & their deeds has raised the questions on all the good things done by Rajiv & Indira Gandhi. What best they have done is that they made great economist Dr. Man Mohan Singh their puppet 10 years ago & used him even better than the name 'Gandhi'. Now we have had enough of corruption, scams, unemployment, rapes, illiteracy etc etc in last 10 long years under congress. We have reahced that stage when we see the ads of congress showing development either we switch off the tv or we switch the channel. I think villagers featured in that ads will be laughing on it after seeing it. Dus saal se humko khokhla karne walo janta maaf nahin karegi.

Now let's move on to Arvind Kejriwal, I will analyze Kejriwal in two phases 1. Kejriwal before Delhi CM & 2. Kejriwal after Delhi CM. Kejriwal before Delhi CM,  when he came in politics, he brought ray of hope that he will remove the corruption from the country & I think he was doing so. He was bringing scams in front of people, he was fighting for jan lokpal in all he was an anti congress person & for all those reasons delhi people voted for him. And to make the government in Delhi, he made an alliance with congress & his phase after Delhi CM began. In that phase he did nothing he just resigned after couple of months & became an anti BJP person. He came to Gujarat to show that Gujarat is not developed but it failed. He has stopped talking against some businessmen because it would affect his vote bank. Hence it is proved that he is the man of congress who just want to affect the votes of Modiji. As a result he is being slapped every other day.

Now let's move on to Narendra Modi, when he was declared the PM candidate there was wave of happiness around the country. He has been accepted by the whole country because of the development he has done in Gujarat & he is expected to do the same for the nation too. He has made Gujarat the automobile hub for the whole world & it is just one small thing he has done, there is a lot more he has done in Gujarat. So if he becomes the PM he will bring the change in our nation too & hopefully India will be back on the track of growth. By considering all these factors I will vote for him in this elections kyunki 'Ab Ki Baar Modi Sarkaar'.
