Divinity in Colours

Hi Guys,

I am feeling that the colour has some divine blessings attached to the same. It could be the effect of Tuesday and I must be missing the visit to Lord Hanuman temple or it can be that I am liking the aura of these flowers.

The choice to think whichever way is entirely yours and this is what makes us unique and blessed.

Moments of Silence

Hi Guys,

Silence is required for a lot of moments, before a moment and after a moment and it speak volumes about us. It helps us find the right points of our lives, where we feel stressed out. It brings in fresh thoughts where we find that power to overtake whatever lies ahead of us. It’s also about the time where we seek to enjoy our own company. These moments or time spent will remain cherished in our memories forever and ever.
We all need some moments of silence before we barge on to something that requires our full focus and attention. The bird seems to be focusing on its next seed of grain for its survival. We all need to survive in this big corporate world and with all the noises around us, we do need to catch on some of these moments of silence to keep ourselves ready for the attack. I am on it guys…don't disturb :-)

Photo Walk - Gardens of the Nature

Hi Guys,

I have been traveling a lot and came across various beautiful flowers which really took my breathe away. These are random flowers which we easily see all around us but then sometimes we miss the beauty that lies in them. Here is my try to capture some of the beautiful moments using my Panasonic FZ-5 Camera.

 I don't like being touched...beware I am surrounded by thorns.
 Hey dude! why did you wake me up? I was happily enjoying the warmth of morning sunshine!
 I am as fresh as the morning dew...I am full of life in all it's forms.
 As blood flows into your veins, the nature's love flows in my leaves...
 I am having a great sleepy afternoon in these winters...
 I can be a bouquet for the season of love and happiness in the times to come! 

I hope you will be inspired to click the lovely nature we see all around us.

Peacock Dancing on Bhajans

Hi All,

It was the very first day at Johannesburg after a long break in India and I went to a South Indian Temple in Laudium, Johannesburg and a great sight was in view even before I could seek view of Almighty Lord..

 Really amazed at the sight of this and felt great too. It was my HTC One #htcone that came in handy to click the right moment.

 Thanks to the people who were singing prayers inside the temple and this peacock was really enjoying the same too.

Indiblogger Sunsilk - Recharging my hairs and life!

Hi All,

Sunsilk has brought back the memories I had of my school and engineering college days when you want to look best and hairs was one of the thing that could make all the difference in your looks. Spending most of the time discussing with friends about your hairstyle and clothing was the best time pass other than wooing girls. I don’t think of any brand that I have missed in this pursuit to get good shiny and silky hairs flowing freely in the air as I walked and run. The whole motive was to look presentable and smart.

The best way to recharge your hairs is by giving it a good wash with Shampoo and then Conditioner. It really gives you a clean scalp and nice silky hairs. I have seen many a times when we travel and a lot of dusts enters our hairs and it starts uneasiness in the head. At those moments we only want a good hair wash rather than itching our scalp.

Recharging my hairs is my top most priority till the time I have them on my head and once moon starts shining on my head then it will be another set of problems that I will face. I want to enjoy the time that I feel whenever I touch my hairs and it really gives me a self esteem boost that still I look young because I took care.

Yes, hairs do recharge your life because you always have the liberty to change your hairstyle and look different. You can adopt NDA cadet look to the hippy look to the boy next door look or the Corporate look with silver lining on your hairs. Also you can adopt Chankaya’s look at any point of time, or whenever you visit Tirupati Balaji Temple.

A lot of my life decisions is based on my hairs when every month I visit barbar shop. They too try to sell their services and gives you various ideas as to which will suit your face cut etc. But overall I feel recharged whenever I go through the process of taking care of my hairs and Sunsilk do help me improve my hairs and keep them shining.

Thanks!!! Cheers!!!

Social Apps impact on Indian General Elections 2014

I am a citizen of India and so are you. We all have some basic fundamental rights that comes with being a citizen of India. Among all of them, the most powerful being the RIGHT TO VOTE and choose your own leadership to represent and lead the country. We might have not used it's power before but seeing the power that it can provide to the citizens in Delhi when Arvind Kejriwal's AAP took power in the capital city. It was the power of the votes that really created the AAP to take up more number of seats in the state. 

India do need a single party in full power rather than a NDA or UPA alliances where everytime they pull legs of each other at whatever instance they can find. Votes by the Youth is the key to this clear one party government which can really make a difference to India.

Man is by nature a social animal and in the age of Information Technology, Internet has penetrated all across India. People are carrying all kinds of smartphones with power of Internet. This not only helps them being aware of their surroundings but also to keep in touch with all the family and friends.

We can definitely utilize the power of Social mobile apps to penetrate and change the behavior of youth to come forward and choose their leaders this year in General elections. 

What I can think of is to access all the leaders who are running elections in your constituency via going through their resumes and work done before. We can ask them questions using Twitter and hangout with them on Google+ to check out how they think? and what they want for the future of India? 

We can constantly keep in touch with all the family and friends and give them regular updates about all the leaders using Wechat, Whatsapp and many more such apps. It will definitely create a wave of awareness between all known and unknowns. 

The power of social mobile apps is that the message can be passed in a split second and you can access it on the go. It is more powerful medium as we can easily remember who is running for what promises and what is their election code, signs and manifesto. 

We can also background check the leaders and what other posts have they held in their lives? Are they able to lead or are just dependent on someone in central government to run them? We all can run discussion on social apps and argue about each and everyone before the final D Day. 

We can also check who is giving what for the procuring votes and then nail him down by reporting the authorities through their twitter handles. Due to our jobs and work, we are always kind of busy but with mobile apps we can be a part of discussion anytime of the day or night. We can then benchmark the same with the elections happened in USA or UK or any major democratic states.

I am starting discussions within my reach of friends and family as to what NAMO is doing and what Rahul ji is doing? What will be the Kejriwal's forces in the centre or what Anna ji will do next? 

Social media apps can really bring all the journalists, media and Aam aadmi together with the power of Internet enables Smartphones and Social mobile apps. I look forward to make a difference this new year using the power in my hands to choose a single leadership whom I think could run India corruption free and personal vendetta free. 

My future is in my hands and I will also make others aware using the mobile apps and I hope you do the same! #VoteForIndia


Note- Indiblogger & Wechat contest on How would you inspire and mobilize India's youth to vote in the Indian General Elections 2014 using social mobile apps?
