New IRCTC Connect App Review

initial screen

As a frequent traveler(and social animal 😉 ), I need to book tickets frequently. And for convenience, I have the railway’s tickets booking app(IRCTC) installed in my phone. Few hours back I received an email from IRCTC side to download the beta version of the new IRCTC Rail Connect mobile app on Google play store. Out of curiosity, I clicked the link and installed the yet-to be released app. The new beta version looks better the old app that I have on my phone and after trying different options, I am trying to figure out the main differences and improvements(as per IRCTC and my experience):       New Users, register and activate from App directly(earlier, the app used to open the original irctc.co.in registration page) Advanced security features to use self-assigned PIN to login without entering username and password

Dangal : Movie Review

dangal

“Ab dangal hoga’.. I guess these three words sufficiently shed light on the state of mind, director (Nitesh Tiwari) and producers (Aamir Khan being one of them) had at the moment they gave their final thought on doing the biopic of the first ever Indian female wrestler to qualify for Olympics. About the story Dangal is about a father, Mahaveer Singh Phogat (Aamir Khan) who has to give up his dream of being an international wrestling champion but what he never gives up is the idea of bringing the gold to home. He craves for a son who can live out the dream for him but the destiny put bars on his enthusiasm and he ends up with four daughters.

smooth-legs

Recently Pooja from the r4review team reviewed the Braun Epilators and here is her take on the same. About Braun Braun, a subsidiary of Procter & Gamble founded in Germany in 1921, develops and manufactures a wide variety of small domestic appliances that marry technical innovation, reliable quality and distinctive design. These range from electric shavers and beauty products to hair care appliances. Braun products enjoy worldwide distribution.

It unveils baby soft, smooth skin like you haven’t  experienced since pre-puberty – all at the press of a button. And once you start, you’ll find yourself  scheduling regular dates in your diary to keep it feeling super smooth around  the clock!   2) Long Lasting That coveted smoooooth feeling genuinely  lasts.

Cambridge N99 Mask

img_6752

  The Indian metropolitans along with rest of the world are facing a serious problem of air pollution. The link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_quality_index shows the AQI across various parts of the world. Delhi toping the chart though and that is what is making companies to pitch in with a solution. I still remember the day I went outside my house and was unable to breathe and had irritation in my eyes and any solution which could help me was welcomed. One such solution that I came across during a blogger meet at Connaught place was “Cambridge N99 Mask”. The first question that popped up during the discussion was how is it better than the rest of the masks that we have currently in the market and are cheap as well. We always look for a ROI in India even if it involves our

Cafe Mojo – Pre Launch Experience

11

First things first, if you guys are looking for a place where you can find a Bar slash Hookah joint slash an open café slash a separate VIP lounge slash a dance floor (after 12’O clock), this is the place to be. One additional exclusive thing about this place is that, it can make us Indians feel like a minority once the clock hits 12’O clock on Sunday nights as the place turns into one of its Caribbean kind thing (both people and the music). Though personally speaking, it was a bit intimidating for me in the beginning but soon I was gyrating to their awesome dance numbers. It was different. It was fun. Living up to its name’s reputation Mojo (a magic charm), the comparatively younger management of this place has contemplated to cater to the needs of all the age groups and across various genres. So let me

Adlabs Imagica : Review

dsc_1219

Everything starts with a wish and Imagica is the reality of wishes. Brimming with charm of everything magical and unparallel fantasy-realities, it is one place that has a ton of things to offer. From the landscapes which appear to be straight out of fairy tales to thrilling rides, it is impossible to not get completely soaked in the wonderland of Imagica. We started our day with SnoMagica which is the largest snow park in India, it was absolutely chilling. We slide down icy slopes in toboggans and rafts were also there just in case,  there was a rocky snowy mountain to climb, a snow castle with of course big huge icy sculptures, a dance floor to get that blood running in minus 5 degree Celsius. And the huge igloo, I have always wanted to be in one and I finally

Tata Hexa Test Drive : Review

dsc_0760

Thanks to Indiblogger and Tata Motors, last weekend I was in Hyderabad to test drive the all new lifestyle vehicle from Tata,”Hexa”. There are 2 variants to it, Automatic and Manual. I got the opportunity to try my hands on both of them and here is my say about the SUV. Exterior On first look Hexa appears as an uplifted version of Aria but there is lot more in it in terms of features, design and comfort which sets a much bolder impression. SUV are known for their macho looks and Hexa doesn’t disappoint on that front. The front, rear and side profile of the vehicle is quite attractive and distinct. 19 inch alloy wheels are muscular and tough. Interior Dashboard looks good though nothing different as compared to other SUVs. The use of premium material can be sensed when
