As bloggers we love to meet new people and interact. You get to learn something from everyone and that is the beauty of human interactions. It is extremely important to keep yourself open to meeting new people and interesting conversations. That’s how you learn new things and trends prevailing in the society. The IndiBlogger team has always been fabulous at providing platforms and opportunities for the bloggers to express their views. The bloggers meet is a fabulous way to bring the bloggers together. The latest IndiBlogger took place in New Delhi in association with Berger Paints.

 

 

Berger has introduced a new concept of Express Painting. A concept that is innovative and effective as well! The concept talks about automation of certain essential and repetitive tasks that are involved in painting. The idea is simple here, if something has to be done repeatedly why we can’t have a machine do that for us to make things easier for us. This not just helps to save time but the efficiency is enhanced as well! Another brilliant thing that Berger has started is training the painters. Now that really is a consumer centric initiative. A trained painter is definitely supposed to be more reliable. All this so that things can be executed faster, cleaner and better! Also if you delve into things, this move to train painters can also help mitigate unemployment in the country. So if you see things closely, this is modernization of painting coupled with corporate citizenship.

 

Berger has introduced some really effective no-mess tools to make life easier for us. Sanding as we know is something inevitable whenever we want to get out house painted. For this Berger has introduced the sanding machine so that you can do things faster and cleaner. For the washing part to clean stuff, Berger has introduced high pressure washer. Other tools like the airless paint sprayer, auto roller are of great utility as well! The good thing was that these tools were physically present at the meet. So we had these no-mess tools at our disposal and that made us realize that these are of tremendous utility.

The #BergerXP IndiBlogger meet at Delhi was pretty well organized and planned. We had interesting activities that involved all. It is a brilliant idea to have activities that involve everybody. Human beings feel valued when they’re involved in things. We feel like we are a part of a goal and we are contributing. The team activity was real fun. The first round made everyone of us do sanding and that is exactly when we realized the importance of the sanding machine. Really you must burn your own fingers to know what fire is! In the second round every team was given a theme and based on that we needed to paint our imagination. There was a Berger trained painter as well to tell us how to mix colors with accuracy and precision.

Post the activity everyone was waiting for the results. The results were great, we won! Yes I was the part of the winning team. We were Team 3 and we won. The theme given to us for the second round was ‘Blogging-Vlogging’. It was a great event overall and the fact that we won made things even better. Thanks a lot Berger for this event and the concept of Express Painting. The concept gives us a way to paint our homes in a hassle free manner. Our homes are so important to us and the walls speak aloud! Sometimes I wonder whether my home is a place or a person!

5 Rajat Kapoor movies you must watch!

rajat-kapoor

Rajat Kapoor does theater, he does movies of different sorts and he for sure is a versatile actor. Often we complain about the shortage of realistic cinema in Bollywood these days. That’s mostly because movies of the aforementioned sort don’t usually get a place in the multiplexes and if they get they run short of audience. Still there are people who want to watch realistic cinema, they value it and they cherish it!

 

I have tried to muster a collection of Rajat Kapoor movies. Out of that collection, here I am listing five movies I think are less watched but deserve attention. I am pretty sure you’ll like these. This list is purely out of my personal experience, so no lies and no canards either!

 

Raat Gayi, Baat Gayi: A movie that is a brilliant satire on the so called high suave society. The protagonist Rajat Kapoor gets so drunk at a party that he doesn’t remember iota about what happened that night. Throughout the movie he is skeptical about things, confused and this confusion leads to interesting events.

 

I’m 24: A movie in essence about online dating. A movie that demonstrates how reality can be different than what we see online! The protagonist dates a girl online and tells us that he is really good looking but in reality it is a different story altogether. A simple yet impressive story and definitely leaves an impact on the audience.

 

Bheja Fry: The story of Bheja fry revolves around a simpleton guy. Rajat Kapoor in this particular movie plays the role of a suave man, apparently a character that really suits his persona. The movie is sure to tickle your funny bone. It is a simple story but with some really strong and impressive performances.

 

Hulla: Another Rajat Kapoor movie that is simple yet extremely relevant. The movie displays the life of a couple living in a gated society in Mumbai. The man gets disturbed by the whistling watchman and scolds him for the same. On the other hand, the secretary of the society insists that the whistling is for the safety of the society. The movie is an extremely interesting one and showcases day to day activities that happen around us.

 

Siddharth: The Prisoner: Well this one is a pure Rajat Kapoor show! He hardly speaks in the movie but his gestures and expressions speak aloud! It is a story of a writer who by fate gets a briefcase full of cash but in the process lost his manuscript. So the crave waves between greed and selflessness. Rajat Kapoor with this brooding looks does absolute justice to the role. In the end, he leaves it all. He leaves it all to start afresh!

 

Well these are just some of the Rajat Kapoor movies mentioned here. He has done umpteen number of movies and keeps experimenting to serve something new and different to the audiences.

The Fantastico road trip to Rishikesh!

Light

 

I love travelling and I love riding bikes as well! Travelling is always a fantastico experience! Travelling helps you enhance your personality as well! Often I go for bike rides with my friends and it is great fun! Riding on bikes gives a great thrill that truly is unmatched! It makes you feel alive and you get that adrenaline rush. Bike rides with friends late in the nights is always an awesome experience! I along with my friends decided to go for a bike ride to Rishikesh and truly that was really special!

 

We were six friends on three bikes and we decided to proceed with our road trip plan! We left from Delhi in the evening around 7pm and it was a tad chilly in the month of January. The weather was really awesome for an exciting bike ride! The first stop or rather break that we took was in Meerut which is less than hundred kilometers from Delhi. We stopped at an unconventional food joint in Meerut and ordered some stuff for us! We took some rest at Meerut as well! Bike rides are always fantastico and great fun! We decided to stay in Meerut for some time and explore the city a little before we leave the city. It also helped us to recharge and rejuvenate ourselves. I must say that Meerut has some awesome and fantastico food joints and is a nice place for food lovers as well!

 

We decided to take the second stop after a few more hours. The second stop we took was in Roorkee which is in UttaraKhand. The place is awesome and we had a nice tea session with snacks in Roorkee. We also took some pictures at the IIT Roorkee and it was great fun! We also explored the city and interacted with a few local people as well! The city is pretty clean and has some nice places to chill out and enjoy. We stayed in Roorkee for a couple of hours and then we decided to leave and continue with our bike ride! Roorkee was truly a fantastico experience for us!

 

It took us around eight hours to reach Rishikesh and the view of the city and really fantastico. We were amazed by the natural beauty of the place and it was extremely scenic as well! We explored the city and met a lot of tourists and local people as well! The city has rich heritage and culture associated with it. We explored the Ram Jhula and the Laxman Jhula as well and we were amazed by the construction and architecture of these fantastic bridges! The city offers some great and fantastico coffee shops where you can get drinks of various sorts. The view from these coffee shops is awesome and fantastico as well!

 

It was really a fantastico road trip!

This blog post is inspired by the blogging marathon hosted on IndiBlogger for the launch of the #Fantastico Zica from Tata Motors. You can apply for a test drive of the hatchback Zica today.

The sweet melody amid worldly noises at the Noida sector 18 metro station

flute

 

Well those who live in Noida know that sector 18 is apparently the most happening sector of the city. The fact that the sector has a metro station as well makes it even busier. I am sure people who have visited the Noida sector 18 metro station must have noticed and heard the sweet flute music that you get to hear as soon as you’re about to exit the metro station. Well, I see no apparent reason for people not noticing the beautiful music. There is a lot of rush at the sector 18 metro station as aforementioned this is one of the busiest sectors in Noida. Yet amid all the worldy noises, you hear the cosmic flute music as soon as you’re about to exit the metro station.

 

I noticed this about two months back! Then at times I would deliberately stop at the sector 18 metro station  while coming back from work just to listen to the flute music, although I had to go to city center metro station. The music was sort of a tranquilizer for me! I observed the man playing the flute, the man rarely spoke to anyone. No matter how many people are passing by the man was always busy with his flute. The music is such that you hear it from about fifty meters away as well!

Music

 

 

One day just out of curiosity I sat with the man. He continued playing the flute and gave me a magnanimous smile. Then the banter started! He told me that he stays at the metro station mainly from 6:30 to 10:30, also that he does it mainly because he likes music. The name of the man is Kuldeep Singh Rohilla and he belongs to Julana village in Jind district in the state of Haryana. Music has been his passion since his childhood, he started with a musiccal instrument called ‘benjo’. The man has been living in Noida for decades now. He makes and sells tea in the morning time and plays flute in the evenings! If you remember, this is the same man who used to play flute at GIP mall some time back.

 

Listening to Kuldeep Singh Rohilla’s flute music amid all the worldly noises is indeed a unique and special experience. Music is always beautiful and at times it takes you into a different zone altogether. I am attaching a couple of snaps with this blog post so that people reading this find it easier to recognize the man and the location as well!

 

 

 

Majnu Ka Tilla | Unique Experience | A Must Visit Place

Well, I had been procrastinating this for quiet some time! Yes, I am talking about my visit to Majnu Ka Tilla. Finally, I made it and to say that it was an awesome experience would be a gross understatement. I will just try to highlight a few points in this post that I think will help you explore the place better. Also I like taking photographs but I use my cell phone for the same, so the quality of the pictures in this post may not be great!

 

The nearest metro station apparently is ‘Vidhan Sabha’ but ‘Kashmiri Gate’ metro station isn’t too far either! When you visit the Majnu Ka Tilla, do visit the Gurudwara as well!

 

Visit the prayer flags that are always hanging in the backyard of the area!

Fabulous music + Nice Ambience + Superb Food + Friendly Service = EATLO Café!

I have always been an ardent food lover! Although, I prefer street food but I keep experimenting and trying new options in the town. The gourmand inside me carries an insatiable desire for taste and hospitality! Delhi NCR region is deluged with café options and at times it becomes difficult to choose one. The region offers enormous options to the people and thus the competition is a tad tough for the cafes!

 

Recently, I came across this cool place to hang out at the ever awesome Shipra Mall, Ghaziabad. The café is called ‘EATLO’ and is a recent addition to the list of cafes in the town. Food is always special and when you add music with it, it becomes cosmic! The café is stylish in a way that might signal a cocktail bar just as much as a coffee shop. This surely is the place to go for friendly service that is also precise about what’s in the cup! As they say, “You must know what you’re drinking”. The ambience is cool and the food is superb as well! The place is an excellent evening option, especially for the people living in the Indirapuram, Ghaziabad region!

 

My personal experience was nice and I would definitely recommend the place to my friends! A few reasons why you must visit the place:

 

  • The ambience is pretty cool and there is no formality about the place.
  • The music is awesome. They mostly play Hindi songs. Some of the songs are from the albums of the 90’s era thus taking you back the memory lane!
  • The hospitality is pretty nice and the service is fast and friendly.
  • The iced brews are really awesome and definitely worth a try!

Indian market is saturated with merchandise brands that sell Tees that are either too common or have become out of fashion! The need and the taste of the consumers is always dynamic and the brands or the brand owners must keep this dynamics in their minds. If you roam around the metro cities in India you will, most probably observe people wearing Tees with the same caption or similar designs. Apparently, the reason for this is that people are facing a huge lack of options and choices. The number of brands that sell Tees with ‘out of the box’ captions or designs are very few in number. Thus, the consumers are forced to buy the same humdrum sort of stuff again and again!
