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.

Long time ago in India people used to buy either small cars or big cars. Indian people were not aware about different segments of cars they only knew two types of cars. Small cars and big cars. Hence they used to buy according to that. There was nothing like SUVs, Sedans, MPV etc in the mind of Indian people. That was long time ago, now people have become smarter and they know about each and every segment of car. From small cars to SUVs they know about everything. Indian people these days buy car according to their needs and desires. They know what they need? A small car, a sedan, an MPV or a SUV.
I am a car freak. I keep an eye on new launches in each and every segment of automobile industry. Few days ago I was going through some new launches and while doing that I came across an MPV Renault Lodgy. It has amazing features. It has everything which I look for in a car but whenever I go on a road trip I take few important things along with me. Let's see Renault Lodgy allows me to carry all those important things or not.
My world resides in my family. I feel complete with my family and I hardly go on a trip without my family. There are three people in my family apart from me but when my extended family like my bua and cousins join in for a trip it gets difficult to fit in one small car but with 7-8 seater Renault Lodgy my dream of a journey with extended family becomes a reality. I always have lot of fun when I go on a trip with my family but at times it gets difficult to plan it with small cars but with the help of Renault Lodgy I can plan those trips with ease.
Me, my brother and my father just love to play cricket anywhere and everywhere. We keep cricket kit in our car instead of home. Seeing our enthusiasm about the game our cousins join in as well but at times due to extra luggage on marriage trip or long trip we have to keep it at home. Renault Lodgy has large boot space. Hence there is no need of keeping it at home and miss all the action. With Lodgy I would carry it easily even with extra luggage as there is no scarcity of boot space in it.
I have a collection of 350 songs and this collection has both old and new songs. I have stored them in one pen drive and I carry it on every single journey. I love to listen songs while driving. It just calms me down in frustrating traffic of Indian cities. In Renault Lodgy there is awesome Medianav system with 8 inch screen in which I can watch videos as well. I can navigate through songs and can choose the song from that collection according to the mood.
I can't live without my mobile. If you want to find me then find where my mobile is. You will find me. These days battery of android phones doesn't last long. Hence I make sure that my battery is full if I am going on long drive but in Renault Lodgy there is in built mobile charger. In Lodgy I can take my mobile without worrying about how much battery is left as I can charge it any time. Renault Lodgy will not keep me away from my phone even for a minute.
I carry lot of soft drinks if I am going on long journey. It keeps me fresh and tireless on road. There is always fear of spilling while carrying those drinks. In Renault Lodgy, cup holders and luxurious flight trays keep the fear of spilling away. Now I can take my soft drinks without any fear of spilling and I can keep myself fresh and active through out the journey.
Renault has taken care of everything while designing Lodgy. It has so many amazing features that you will just fall in love with it.
