3G is now a history as 4G has been launched in the country. Airtel is the first company to launch 4G in India. It has launched 4G across 296 towns of the country. 4G spectrum was auctioned in 2010 along with 3G spectrum. After that every company started the testing of 4G in different parts of country. Airtel started its testing in Kolkata in 2012. Mobile companies started launching 4G phones a while ago. All 4G phones possess pretty high band width. People started buying those phones but 4G services were still to be launched. Finally our wait is over as Airtel 4G is here.
Airtel launched 4G services in the first week of this month with a challenge that if you get the faster network than Airtel then Airtel will pay your phone bills whole life. Here, Airtel has hit the right spot. I mean we all know what kind of speed we get when we use 3G and this is 4G so it has to be the fastest network ever. 4G is all about speed. I can't ask for anything else if I get such speed which Airtel shows in its TVC.
For me network speed is must as internet has become basic necessity for me. Everyday I tweet, play online games, write, watch movies on youtube, read articles, search for data, surf various websites etc. Thus network speed must be high for me. I have experienced 3G speed but I was totally frustrated by it. Telecom companies says it is 3G but where their network is weak there they provide 2G network instead of 3G. So I used to see the circle of buffering most of the time in everything I do. These days I rely on wifi at my home and my workplace but I can't get it everywhere. So I was eagerly waiting to see the speed of 4G.
With the 4G speed under my hood I will tweet, play games online smoothly, watch movies on youtube without buffering, surf various websites at the same time, download data and pictures for my writing faster, watch live streaming of cricket matches, download cricket videos and highlights of the match etc. I am just waiting for my 4G enabled phone to arrive. As now I cannot wait to switch to Airtel 4G.
The best part of Airtel 4G is that it is available at the price of 3G. Due to this 2G users will also give a try to 4G as it is available at price of 3G. Now next thing is how to get a Airtel 4G sim? Getting a 4G sim is just a tweet away. You just need to tweet with hashtag #GetAirtel4G by tagging @airtelIndia in it. As soon as you tweet it Airtel people will get in touch with you immediately and will assist you to get 4G sim. The other way to get a 4G sim is by registering on Airtel's website. Airtel is doing free home delivery of a 4G sim. You don't have to go anywhere it will be delivered at your place. All you need to do is register for it. So what are you waiting for? Experience the fastest network ever today.

Renovation of my house is going on since last four months and we have reached that stage where interior designer is going to begin his work soon i.e. construction work is almost over. My Mom and Dad has already instructed the interior designer regarding how they want their room. My room is on the first floor and at the moment flooring and ceiling work is going on in my room. As the things are going out of budget so interior designer is going to do the interior work only on the ground floor. No one is going to ask me how I want my room as of now. I had planned a lot of things for my room.
My room is that corner in the world where I celebrate highs of my life and bring out frustration on my failures. It is the place where I dance the way I want to without worrying about anyone. It is the place where I used to hide chocolates. Its walls used to be my canvas where I used to draw and write whatever I felt like. My room has also been my playground where I used to practice my shots everyday. My room has witnessed my night outs during exams. While these days it witnesses my tensed sleepless nights. In short my room is that cozy corner in the world where I express my every feeling and emotion.
They say your room reflects your personality and my personality is largely dominated by two things. Cricket and Writing. Cricket and writing are two things I am passionate about. Actually these are the only two things in this world through which I express myself freely. Thus I want my room to reflect that. I want my room to be designed in such a way that it should reflect both the things. One part of my room should be sporty where I can get the feel of cricket stadium. In that part of a room there should be a T.V. and a wooden box where I can keep my cricket kit and display my trophies.
While other part of my room should be sleek where I can write peacefully. And this part of my room should have a bookshelf and a digital wall frame so that I can read blogs and other stuff on that digital space. In this way it will reflect both cricket and writing. After renovation I will carry on with old furniture and fixtures. For the time being the idea for designing my room has been dropped but in future whenever my room will designed, I would like to design my room in the way I have described it above.

1. Palat Tera Hero Idhar hai
2. Desi Girl
I am a huge fan of Shankar Mahadevan. I think he is the best singer in this nation. Desi girl is sung by him and I love this song a lot. If you are straight then you will definitely fall in love with Priyanka after watching this song. It is that kind of song which makes my surrounding happier.
3. Tumhi Ho Bandhu
I never imagined that the prayer we used to sing in school will be such a trendy song and all of us will sing it in this way. Everything is just awesome about this. It's music, it's lyrics everything.
4. Abhi toh party shuru hui hai
The song made for party animals. You just can't stop yourself from dancing when you listen this song. The rap part of it has that energy which freshen up your moments and pulls you to dance floor.
5. Dhan Te Nan
I love the attitude of this song. The passion with which Sukhwinder Singh and Vishal Dadlani has sung it is just amazing. This song just takes away my frustration. By the way Sindhis are good singers.
6. Taazgi ka dhamaka
I recently saw it on youtube. Though it is an advertisement of colgate but Allu Arjun's south Indian moves syncs well with Anushka Manchanda's voice. It is made with the purpose to spread the message of spreading freshness and it satisfies that purpose.
7. G Phaad Ke
When Govinda dance he brings smile on everyone's face. Here his moves fits well with this Sachin-Jigar's composition and overall makes it a great song.
8. Galla Goodiyan
I just love these kind of songs in Karan Johar and Farhan Akhtar movies in which lot of singers come together and sing a song. It is one of those songs which fills me with the energy.
9. Sooraj Dooba Hai
It is one of the most realistic song. Though I don't drink but I love this song. It is so realistic that it takes away my tiredness and give me the freshness I need.
10. Teri Meri Kahaani
This song is very close to my heart. Whenever I listen it I leave everything and just go with its flow. It makes me forget everything and let me go in my own world and when I come out of that world I come out as a fresh soul.
I am blogging for #MaxFreshMove activity at BlogAdda in association with Colgate MaxFresh.

In 1996 my brother was born. At that time I was just 6 years old. Everyday grandma used to massage my brother with different types of oils. Due to that I was not allowed to play with him for that hour or so. I was not allowed to pick him up in my arms as everyone had a fear that he is going to slip out of my hands after that oiling. One day I asked grandma that 'Why do you massage his body daily?' She smiled and said 'You won't understand.' That answer from grandma hurt my ego. I was like how can she say that I won't understand. I am big enough to understand everything.
That day I followed her everyhwere to get my answer. She noticed that I am not going give up unless I get the answer. She finally stopped me from following her and said while pulling my cheeks 'I massage her body daily to make him cute and strong like you.' Ofcourse it wasn't the complete answer but my ego was satisfied with that answer. Moreover I got two complements cute and strong so I was more than happy. Then I was running in the whole house shouting 'my brother will be cute and strong like me.' When Paa came home at night I asked him 'Paa, you know why grandma massage little one daily?,' Paa replied 'No I don't know that.'
'Because the younger one will become cute and strong like me.' I said it to paa with all the cuteness I had at that time. It was way back in 1996 and an advertisement took me back in that moment. I was surfing net few days ago and I came across the advertisement of dabur baby massage oil. I opened that advertisement to know more about it. I came to know that olive oil is known to help provide the nourishment to the baby's skin. While almond oil is known for gently moisturizing baby's delicate skin and makes it soft and supple. These two oils provide the baby required nourishment.
After reading that I understood why grandma used to massage my brother with different types of oils. In that advertisement it was also mentioned that regular massaging helps in strengthening bones and muscles of baby. Hence it cleared all my doubts I had in my childhood. Dabur massage oil is unique blend of premium natural oils like olive and almond. We all know Dabur always focuses on developing the products using natural ingredients. Dabur baby products doesn't contain Paraffin and Paraben. Apart from that it will keep away your baby's skin from artificial colours as Dabur prohibits the use of any form of artificial colours in any of its products. Thus it is safe and provide necessary nourishment to your baby. So open a spa at home for your baby with Dabur baby massage oil.

I use lot of Proctor and Gamble products. Head and Shoulders, Gillette, Duracell & Oral-B. I use all of them and on every product they mention the website rewardme.in. So one day I decided to check the website. I checked it and found lot of interesting and useful articles. While going through the articles I found one article named as Make a smart water bottle in crafts section. We all know how much important it is for us to drink water in summer. We need to take in certain amount of water compulsorily to keep ourselves hydrate during summer. Now to keep track of how much water you have actually drunk we have this concept of smart water bottle.
To make smart water bottle take two plastic water bottles, masking tape of different colours, scissors and a marker. Use masking tape and make three graduations on each bottle. Make the graduations equal. It will divide the bottle in five parts. Ultimately you will obtain five equal volumes of water to drink one volume of water every hour. Use the marker to mark the time on the bottle for each volume of water. For example if you are on a 9 to 5 job then start marking from 10 a.m. and from 10 a.m. go on till 5 p.m. There will be ten volumes of water and you can drink one volume of water every hour on your ten hour job.
I don't get pure water at my work place. I try my best to avoid that impure water as I often used to fall sick because of that impure water. I used to suffer from tonsils every month. This summer I suffered from diarrhoea and due to that doctor asked me to do some tests. In those tests he found out that I drink very less water. I told him about the impurity of water at my work place is the reason for that. After getting cured from diarrhoea I decided to take two water bottles with me at my work place. So that I don't drink water there. It has been a month since I am taking two water bottles at my work and I haven't fallen sick since then.
Now this article will help me to keep the track of water I take in daily. Sometimes it happens that I get so busy in work that I do not consume water for 2-3 hours. Hence it will also push me to consume certain volume of water every hour. This article will keep me hydrated during the summer in the most interesting way. Moreover I will get habituated to take in certain amount of water every hour with these smart water bottles.

Radiant Skin. Everyone dreams of having radiant skin. No oil, no pimples, no blackheads just clean and clear face. We don't get it as our skin has to face sun, dirt and pollution everyday. So getting radiant skin is just a dream. It is like impossible to save your face from dirt, pollution and sun then what to do to get clean & oil free skin? I will tell you what I do keep my skin clean and oil free.
I cover my whole face whenever I go out to save my face from dirt, pollution and sun. I wash my face a lot to remove dirt from it. I wash it before going out, I wash it after coming home from outside and I wash it whenever I feel like. To hide blackheads I don't shave my face for more than 20 days in a month. It is a trend of having a bearded face so it is cool to keep beard on your face but when this trend will go off I had to find something else to hide blackheads from my face. After trying everything I try these natural things to keep my skin clean and oil free but radiant skin (in which I have nothing to hide) is not even closer.
Few days ago I was ordering a face wash online for my brother and while doing that I came across VICCO turmeric cream with foam base. I wanted to know more about that product so I opened its description. Its description was like "Its ayurvedic formula combined with microbicide properties of turmeric prevents oily skin, fights pimples and clears blackheads". I knew ayurveda is better than cosmetics. Ayurveda has various benefits over cosmetic facial cleansing regime. Cosmetic facial cleansing regime is harmful to skin while Ayurveda facial care regime improves the texture and health of skin. Moreover we all know that from how many years VICCO is bringing ayurvedic products in the market. It is one of the oldest and trusted brands in India. So it was worth trying. Hence I ordered it as well along with my brother's face wash.
I recieved it two days after placing the order. I am using it regularly since then. I think it has been seven odd days and I have already witnessed the difference. It has removed pimples from my face, there is no oil on my facial skin and it has started clearing blackheads from my face. I use it after coming home from work and from morning till evening my face faces everything dirt, pollution and sun. It becomes dull in the evening and VICCO turmeric cream removes that dirt and oil from my face and gives it fresh look. I am very much happy with its result. By the time the trend of bearded face will go off my skin will be radiant and I won't have anything to hide. I think everyone should use it because not only it brings you closer to radiant skin but it saves your face from harmful cosmetics.

In the last week of April I was coming back to Ahmedabad from Pune. My ticket was booked in tier II in a 2 a.m. train from Pune by my agent but the ticket was not confirmed. My agent assured me that my ticket will get confirmed as there was only one waiting in tier II. I left my training centre in Pune well before time and reached Pune station by 10:00 p.m.
Before leaving the training centre I watched two movies of South's superstar Allu Arjun. Both the movies were action packed. I was watching Allu Arjun's movies for the first time. I didn't expected him to be superb dancer. I mean if you watch south movies then you expect action but sensational dance moves from south Indian actors is rarity. Allu Arjun was swift on his feet. His moves were awesome. Apart from that I don't know why but Anushka Manchanda's 'Na jane' song from the movie I, me aur main was playing in my head since morning. My energy that day was at different level. There was excitement of going back home.
By the time I reached station reservation charts were out. First thing I did at station was I checked the charts. My name was not in that list. I checked PNR status and it was same. It still showed WL1. In simple terms my ticket got cancelled rather than getting confirmed. I was standing at Pune station. I had to catch a train at 2 a.m. but at 10:30 I came to know that my ticket has not been confirmed. It was a new city for me, I didn't know anyone there. It was a panic alert but I didn't panic in that sitiation. I called my agent. Before I say anything to him he started apologising and that calmed me down. He asked me to reach Mumbai anyhow. He said he said there is a flight from Mumbai to Ahmedabad at 5:30 in the morning and he was booking ticket in that flight. It was the best option among all. I stood in a queue to get the ticket to Mumbai but I wasn't able to get the ticket as railway staff went on a break of half an hour when I was almost there.
11:00 p.m. As there was a break at station I went at bus depot opposite to railway station. Last bus to Ahmedabad departed at 10:15 but there was a bus to Mumbai at 11:30. I bought the ticket of that bus and informed my agent that I have got the bus to Mumbai. He mailed me that air ticket and went to sleep. I was finding the ways to reach to airport and that man was sleeping. He knew he can relax only till I reach Ahmedabad then he was gone. I reached Mumbai at 2:00 a.m. I knew Mumbai is a city which never sleeps but still it was odd time to land in any city. I booked a cab to airport online in the bus only. It was safest option to airport at that point of time. After reaching airport I got a print out of ticket thanks to cooperative and highly supportive staff and then I reached to waiting lounge to relax a bit. I was in the lounge by 3:15 and after all the chaos I was sitting in the lounge and was trying to remove the stress.
Allu Arjun entered the lounge. I was surprised to see him in Mumbai. I didn't knew where he was going but even at that point of time he was charged. He was walking here & there in the lounge using his phone. Suddenly someone turned TV into a sound mode from a mute mode and on TV Anushka Manchanda's 'Na jane' was playing. The song is so well sung by Anushka that everyone's foot was tapping. Allu Arjun was busy with his phone call. As soon as he heard that song after his call he started shaking his leg. "Hey, it is one of my favorite songs." He shouted. "Na jane kahan se aaya hai, Na jane kahan ko jayega, deewana kisse banayega yeh ladka." He started singing along with dancing. He brought the whole waiting lounge on its feet with his energy at 3:45 in the morning. The airport staff also gathered in numbers to see him dance.
Then he came and pulled me from my arm to join him in that act. I woke up saying "no no...". When I looked around after opening my eyes everyone in the waiting lounge was looking at me then I realised it was just a dream. It was an embarrassing situation. So I put my head down and checked my mobile and it showed 4:12 a.m. I saw that dream because I saw couple of Allu Arjun movies and that Anushka Manchanda song was playing in my head all the time. So it was somewhere in mind and it came out as my imagination during that power nap. Though it was embarrassing but it brought that energy and excitement back in me which lasted till I reached home.
