You bought your gold and diamond ornaments on this wedding season and kept them in bank lockers. Must be feeling relaxed now because all your wealth is with bank and is safe. But is it actually safe ? Have you wondered that there may be chances of bank robbery or breaking of your lockers or your precious ornaments may just get lost ?

What will happen then ? Will bank refund you ? No , never . Be prepared to bear the loss of all your ornaments. Why ? Why will bank not claim any responsibility for your lost ornaments ?

Go back and think ! Did you tell the bank manager what all you are keeping in the locker ? No . You just kept it secretly and have your own lock and keys to operate the locker. That’s how it works always. So you…

MOBILE : My New Found Best Friend

Gone are those days when “Roti, Kapda aur Makan” used to be the bare essentials for living. For me and my generation it is “Mobile“! With a mobile in hand, I am like the super-woman who can do anything I wish to. My life has practically reached a higher level  of contentment.

No need to be a tech-savvy to relish the boons of a mobile, everything is just one touch away! It’s so simple and then sky is limit to do anything. I may not be achieving a lot with it like others but the small things it does for me has made my life so much simpler and easy. It has given me the flexibility to do things at my own whims and fancies and being a girl I will always cherish this feeling. 🙂

I can shop online; surf my Facebook, Twitter account, chat with friends and family on Whatsapp and Hangout; check my office and personal mails; listen songs; watch videos; get all news updates; share pictures with family and friends; do a video chat or call for free even across the countries; book a cab and go anytime anywhere ; checkout new recipes or order food online when I am hungry; play new games when I am bored ; pay all my bills and rent on time, get home decor ideas on Pinterest, Google on things I want to learn and the list will go on and go. The best thing is now I can handle all this activities almost at one single time without messing up because of my mobile. I have become a jack of all trades now. Hurry !  😀

For everything, small or big, it is mobile! It won’t be an exaggeration if I say mobile is my friend in need without a much of deed ! The only thing it demands for is battery charging. 🙂

2

I feel so independent and confident when I can manage all my personal things just in one touch without carrying a huge laptop bag on my back or waiting for wifi or broadband to do all this. This paradigm shift from laptop to mobile is a boon in life for a girl like me. I have already started feeling lazy to switch on my laptop to just surf internet. I always prefer my mobile to cut the time of switching on and then shutting it down and putting it back inside the laptop bag. So much of workload has been reduced by the small gadget. 😛

Further more I can change my mobile model and keep up with the latest fashion without much of a hassle ! 🙂

2

So I feel mobile is a girl’s best friend. It has given us the freedom and confidence that we had always wanted for ourselves and compliments our style and fashion by being sleek and handy which can fit in almost any jeans pocket or designer clutch.

So I wish to thank Mr. MartinMartyCooper who invented the first handheld cellular Mobile phone and made our lives so great ! (This research is also done through mobile only 🙂 )

I am participating in the #SMWBangalore activity at BlogAdda in association with Social Media Week Bangalore.

Ramayana – The Game of Life : Shattered Dreams (Book 2)

My Book Copy From Blogadda

My Book Copy From Blogadda

Most of us are well versed with the epic of Ramayana. I thought of re-reading this epic from Shubha Vilas’s point of view. Shubha Vilas is a spiritual seeker and a motivational speaker who holds a degree in engineering and law. This book is Part 2,  a sequel of Rise of the Sun Prince , where the author begins from the exile of Rama from Ayodhya. I have not read Part 1 of the series yet but : A) I did not find any difficulty in reading Part 2 ; B) I will surely read Part 1 now.

The most desirable thing about the book was inspite of knowing the entire story and what will happen next the author was able to hold my interest till the end of the book. The conversation between the characters were written so nicely as if I could hear them speaking before me. The most interesting conversation was between Manthra and Queen Kaikeyi when Manthra poured her venomous thoughts in Kaikeyi’s mind and that’s where the epic takes a u-turn. Had Kaikeyi was not influnced by the humpbacked Manthra the series of events which followed later would have never taken place.

Secondly, what distinguishes this book from other narration of epics is the author’s illustrations in the form of footnotes and drawing a relation between the lives of those mythological characters and a common man of today. The author went beyond and compared human feelings with objects and described how we should handle our day today life. For example: When Manthra suggests Kaikeyi to sit in isolation and weep to hover the mind of King Dasratha and then ask for the boons, the author describes that in a conversation or in our thinking process our surrounding plays a major role. He explains why a bar or pub is dark or dim lighted to tune our mind accordingly. He describes anger as a flower vase thrown on someone where the vase will break and the person will get hurt. Such small and real life experiences given by the author provokes us to live a positive life. However at some points I felt that instead of author spoon feeding a thought into us, the reader should have been left free to think and analyse.

Re-reading of this epic made me come across many small tales within which I had not heard before or had forgotten. For example : why was King Dasarath named so ? How did Ravan got his name ? From where did Puspak Viman came ? Thanks to the author for telling us so many stories once again.

Well there were few parts which I did not like much. According to author King Dasratha was both happy and jealous when he announced Rama’s coronation news to his subjects and they took Rama’s name in unison as their next King. According to me King Dasratha was a man of intellect and a loving father who could not have been jealous of his own son under any circumstances. Then at another point author describes the beauty of Rama and writes girls are crazy for him. I personally found this very demeaning  for a character of Rama for whom we have respect and worship him. Instead the girls or women may be ‘mesmerised’ of Rama’s beauty would have been a better depiction.

Overall the book was a good read and a recap of the old epic in today’s time when we are slowly forgetting the values we have been taught in our childhood. Lastly, I would like to thank Blogadda for giving me this copy of the book to read and review. It was surely an enriching experience for me.
