Only If Harry Potter & His Friends had a Smartphone!

If you love magic , JK Rowling’s best selling book ‘Harry Potter and the six books that followed’ wouldn’t be new to you. What is it about this fantasy world that has been so astonishingly attractive for so many adults and children you wonder. What magic was to them is what smartphones are to us today. If you are a pottermaniac you must have at some moment thought of all the possibilities the students of Hogwarts would have if they had access to a smartphone ! I am not saying wands and magic potions weren’t enough for them but what if they were to use smartphones in their daily life ? Well well I have always had these crazy thoughts of what it would be like if harry potter and his friends had access to the smartphones ! :D
Its damn outright true that when you’ve got magic, you don’t really need the net or a smartphone for that matter. But let’s just say that in a parallel universe, Harry Potter and the gang get their hands on a smartphone and discover the wonders of the apps installed on a smartphone, what would it be like?! If that happened, then these are the ways I guessed they would benefit from it.
1. No more waiting : Remember how Harry and his friends had to wait for holidays and weekends to taste their favorite Butterbeer ( Well its simply the most delicious drink ever even though nobody has tried it yet!) , Magical sweets, the delicious Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans and chocolate frogs. They would travel in the coldest of the winters to the three broomsticks to get a sip of their favorite drink . If they had the power of smartphones they would able to order all these at the click of a button ! Viola , I am sure Hermoine would use the time saved in studying some more. :P
2. No ‘OUCH’ moments: What happens when you have a surprise Yule Ball announcement and your mother has packed your sister’s clothes for you ? Well you don’t want to end up looking like Ron, would you? If Ron and Harry had access to smartphones they would simply login to Myntra/Flipkart via app and shop for the latest men’s suits and end up looking dapper and catching the right girl’s attention!
3. Google maps :
Yes please. You don’t want to end up meeting Malfoy and forcefully having to look at the ill faced Malfoy again and again . Find better paths back to your classrooms via google maps or Hoogle maps (Hogwarts+Google) ;) And Harry won’t get lost while heading to Platform nine and three quarters again !
4. SHOPPING: Book a new Broom at a single click - Ask Harry or Ron or even Ginny what a broom means to them ! Harry will swear by a broom because that’s what got him through the dragons task in ‘'the Goblet of Fire’ plus not to forget Quidditch is impossible to play without a broom! And what happens if you have a Broom breakout or some nasty fat or sleazy student from Slytherin steals your broom? You order a new one from your smartphone that too on next day delivery/Same day delivery ! :D Plus online shopping portals like Myntra have app only offers that always have huge discounts running on their websites ;) No more skipping Quidditch ! And no doubts when you tell shopping from portals like Myntra which have a whopping 80% flat off on app sales , its like MAGIC for the Weasely family considering they have to spend cautiously because they haven’t the income to buy new brooms without discounts :D!
And shopping for gifts would be so much easier for Ron and Dobby who always end up giving the most awkward gifts ! I am sure they would send so much love to Myntra app after Hermoine would kiss him when he got her a romantic gift ;)
5. Apps -Harry Potter Instagram
OH YES ! You can only imagine the amount of fun and help it would have been if Harry and his gang would have access to smartphones ! Endless apps such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook ,Flashlight, Flipkart, Myntra , Gmail, Whatsapp , camera etc Advanced tech apps are a boon to all those who use them ! Endless shopping, instant messaging, immediate access to news and micro blogging . Not to forget every tweet sent out by Harry would be the most favorited and most Retweeted ;) Dobby dropping a happy birthday msg on Facebook profile of Harry and so much more !
So that’s what it would be like if wizards had smartphones! It would definitely feel like magic!

Anywhere, Anytime, Always Recharged : My Airtel App!

MyAirtel App
I am a Airtel Broadband user and ever since Bharti Airtel introduced their MyAirtel App I have been running around in circles with joy ! I remember times when I wanted to know the balance amount and I had to call someone and cut the line so I could know how much balance amount is left for making calls. And there were times when my data usage would turn zero and I couldn't even buy a data pack because no access to internet ! The new MyAirtel app is a life saver for people who face problems like these! Now internet data recharging and mobile postpaid recharging is at my finger tips *yayy* No more going to the shop keeper wala bhaiyya and asking him to recharge ! Smartphones have really made lives easier and apps are the malai on the milk :P
MyAirtel app review
The new 'my airtel' app is a boon to Indian subscribers as it lets them to manage their mobile, fixed line and DTH services! I downloaded the app, which is absolutely free from Google Play Store and for those who intend to download the app through SMS can do so by messaging 'myairtel' to 54321.
I so loved the buy products from airtel option, all those wanting to buy a new connection can easily do so now that the super app is out for downloading! The app is simple and user friendly and does not complicate one ! I am so glad I downloaded the app immediately on its release ! My most favorite features of this app are as follows:
Favorite MyAirtel App feature
1. I want To feature : This feature allows one to add favorites like quick recharge , paying bills and one can get access to everything with just a single swipe in the app ! Isn't that cool! The first that I added in the 'I want to' feature was mobile recharge ! 
2. Speedy Recharge & Faster Checkouts: Remember times when you had to use third party apps/sites to recharge your prepaid and postpaid line. From getting a 2G/3G pack to recharging and making payments -Its so EASY and Quick! No more logging into a third party account and then selecting the pack which we want to recharge it with!
3. Low Data/Low balance Reminder : Even though I have a feature of data usage warning on my mobile , it tends to get all confused and I end up using more than I intended to, hence the feature in the app which allows to set data usage alerts or reminders is love only!
Overall its a the new MyAirtel app is a very handy app which allows us to manage all of the Airtel services straight from our cell phones !The new MyAirtel app has made life simpler for all those airtel customers out there! I highly recommended a download, especially for all those people with more than one Airtel connection.

Pictures captured with ASUS zenfone

The clutch has now turned into a must-have accessory to round out our look and add the glam factor to our outfit. Big blingy clutches soft velvet boxes for parties and functions during day time and precious little clutches in all different sizes during the night .

A clutch is pure love because it lets you carry your phone and money in style . Its important to make sure you buy a clutch which fits your phone, you don’t want to hold a clutch in one hand and a phone in the other, it looks silly hokay. Fortunately for me my Asus Zenphone fits in all of my clutches easily <so sleek and so beautiful:*>

I’m a big fan of accessories and my most favorite accessory is the CLUTCH !. If you are style savvy and have a good eye for trendy pieces, you can pick up a couple of hatke and eye catchy clutches and turn into a showstopper without effort ;)

Well well summer season is here and the number of parties during the season are the highest! Be it a reception of a dear friend or a Saturday party night you’ll have numerous occasions to flaunt your trendy clutches ! And hence here are the 5 must have party clutches which according to me every fashionista must own!

Mex gold studded clutch

I remember seeing this bag at Amazon and instantly falling in love with it! It’s a gold box clutch which has a jewel like flap at the opening. The best part is its so lightweight ! When it comes to studded clutches that too studded on both the sides clutches tend to get heavier but this one from MEX is a steal ! Loved it ! And now this one is a prized possession of mine! A bejeweled clutch is always a good idea and will never go out of fashion, so it’s really worth investing in one that you will use time and time again.

Top 5 clutches

It’s a great size that fits everything you need on a night out!The one ring jeweled clutch looks and feels expensive. I am glad I invested in something so beautiful plus this cultch definitely is a show stopper! ;)

Apple clutch

The third best party clutch is a clutch that will take your breath away ! The Apple wala clutch is one of a kind, fashionable and fruity ;) This sweet clutch is medium sized apple shape silver clutch, studded at both sides from MEX. It was love at first sight ! The moment I laid my eyes on this clutch I knew I had to have it in my Party Clutch collection and hey the next day it was being shipped to my address :D

Satya paul clutch

BOX clutches are the raging fashion trend that has caught up with most of the celebs. And this one is the ultimate party clutch! There is something crazy about carrying a box clutch! Do you feel the same?  I am head over heels in love with my box Satya Paul Satin clutch !

Box clutch

Box clutches that are studded and beaded are also quite a rage with the party goers.. This Purple Aiva Box clutch was a buy from Yebhi and ever since I bought it has been among my favorites!

Limeroad shopping

Clutch makers have come up with bolder and bigger clutches and they are quite a show when carried to a party. Bolder materials like velvet and sequins and in brighter colors. This dark blue clutch was a buy from limeroad and its huge, by huge I mean it! It can carry my Asus , my lipstick,lip balm,makeup,tissue papers, wallet, cards and all phones in my family, LOL-SO BIG! I love the embroidery on this and the oval shape which makes it easy for us to carry in my palm.

All of the pictures clicked for this fashion post are by my Asus Zenfone , yes. I know its hard to believe but Zenfone 5’s camera is beautiful and captures pictures that you can use to write a blog post ! I recently got Nikon point and shoot camera and I have to say I am finding it so hard to click pictures from it :/ So complex and hence I have shifted to easy clicking of pictures from my ASUSZenfone with which I have had zero problems so far *Happy dance*

Fashionable Friday : Watches For Women

Its clear from all the women flaunting their luxury watches that the ‘keeping the accessories minimal’ means donning a luxurious watch and cutting down on all the other accessories. A wrist watch is a staple accessory for most of the women out there. they might not wear earrings or skip the lipstick or even chuck down on carrying a bag but ask them to leave their watches at home and they will glare at you for asking them to leave a part of their body at home :p

Case in point, many of the fashion shows with models flaunting over-sized branded watches evoked a chic watch wear vibe that we want to start rocking effective immediately. The fastest way to get on board with this trend, is to invest in a branded beautiful over-sized watch! :D Extraordinary watches designed for women by renowned brands like Fast-track, Michael Kors and Titan work overtime with day-to-night metals, stylish analog designed, bracelet-inspired designs and sparkling embellishments.

The latest trend caught up with fashionistas is the over sized watches ! It’s a lil hard to find over-sized watches in the women’s range and hence women buy an over-sized watch designed for men and dammit it works wonders on the small wrists of a woman ;) The next big trend is the watch stacked along with a dozen of bracelets. I love the way a watch and bracelets look together! One of my next purchases will definitely be a big, chunky, rose gold watch and an over-sized Fastrack watch ^_^

A beautiful watch can stand alone with a minimal look, or can be added to a stack of bracelets and blend in with a super glam ensemble. This versatility makes this watch trend an investment that will surely stand the test of time. Undoubtedly a branded watch is definitely one of the most versatile accessories that you can pair with everything from a t-shirt to a party outfit. Investing in a cool watch will never go out of style!

Until next time,

Kapil Dev On Twitter & His Nayi League…

kapil dev on twitter

In the month of april,2015 World cup winning captain Mr Kapil Dev tweeted his first tweet on twitter and ever since then he has been sharing information on a new league he is working on currently. He tweeted to many celebs asking them to join his league which he calls it ‘Ek Nayi League’ and many of the celebs tweeted back saying they would be delighted to be a part of his league…

Kapil Dev even tweeted that he was glad to be on twitter and very happy to have got a chance to connect with his fans on a platform which was direct. After a couple of days he joined on twitter the star of cricket tweeted a few video in which he mentions about his fabulous and unique league which when played with heart will hit the wicket bang on! At first I was a little too sure it was some league to do with sports as Kapil Sir rigorously tweeted and tagged his sports friends on twitter plus the videos he tweeted where based on sportspersons.
He even tagged Yuvraj Singh in one of his video’s . Curiosity got the better of me and I watched the video to find out Kapil Sir talking about how good a crickets man Yuvraj Singh is. he further went on to tell that he was very happy when Mr Yuvraj was getting a huge sum of money for his talent.
The next video he tweeted was tagging ace badminton player of India , Sania Mirza . He went on to tell how fond of Sania he was and how he supported her wholeheartedly. You can see the tweet he tweeted below where there is a video attached in which he speaks about the women of India joining badminton sport and how Sania Mirza being among just 300 women who opt for playing for their country reach in the top 50’s ranking of best badminton players in the world.
He also tweeted a video where he praises Dhoni for his work as a captain and how Dhoni should stop talking about his retirement as he knows a captain picks up a team with his heart.
After watching all these videos where he ends every video with telling the audience that he would soon reveal what this Eak nayi league is all about in his next tweet he finally broke the ice by tweeting about the league today..
I am not sure what ITL actually is about but after a lil research I found it is a Championship for Investors and Traders!ITL is a pan India competition which allows all of its participants to showcase their investing and trading skills and outperform other market participants in an environment which is real and set across asset classes including stocks, derivatives and commodities to win the ultimate respect of being India’s Best Trader and win a whopping prize of one damn crore ;)

You can follow Kapil Sir on twitter to keep track of all the events he is a part of and interact with him on his handle @therealKapilDev and know more about his Nayi League here
