All About My Airtel App

Are you fed up of going to the mobile shops for small recharges and not sure if you can give your number to those shop folks in order to do the easy recharge ? Are you afraid if your call will suddenly will get disconnected due to the less balance in your mobile account ? Are you stuck in rain and in train or travel and have less balance to talk to  your family or girlfriend ? Fret Not. Download and install Airtel’s My Airtel App and recharge instantly from wherever you are. I tried this application on my smartphone and I am really happy that I installed it.  This application is available for download on different platforms like Android, iOS, Windows, OVI on Nokia and on Blackberry smartphones. Very simplistic interface and user friendly.

Here are the three top features I like about this application on my Android Smartphone.

The very first feature I like about this application is you can track usage and balance of not only your phone number, but also you can track the details of your family members mobile numbers too in the same application without having to install the application on each and every mobile. You can recharge all the mobiles you add to your list right from your smartphone. The section showsn the detail of your data usage if you are a postpaid or prepaid customer, also it shows the current balance in your airtel mobile account which gives a clue on when to recharge.

The second feature which I like about this application is the payment methods which you use to pay for the pack which you choose and the pack selection method itself. It clearly mentions how much will be deducted for the tax, how much is the talk time when you buy a pack. The payment is simple and straight forward and you can pay using different banking methods like using debit card, credit card, net banking, and also using Airtel Money. You can save your card details too in the application so that you don’t have to look for the card number etc., every time you want to recharge. Its pretty amazing that Airtel has come up with this easy application for their users.

The third feature which I like most about this application is you can buy a new product like Prepaid number, postpaid number, DTH  and FixedLine/Broadbac right  from your mobile app by providing your contact number and requirement details. The executives from Airtel will call back and do the needful.

What else? On top of this Airtel has come up with Shake your phone to get exclusive offers whenever you try to recharge for any amount, you can get lot of discounts from different vendors who have tied up with Airtel. This just works similar to other players in market who offer same kind of stuff.

Kya Hain Yeh Ek Nayi League?

Heard of or seen these promos of Ek Nayi League by non other than the legendary cricketer Mr. Kapil Dev? If not, here it goes. Visit this site and you can see the promotions from him but its completely no leaks about it whatsoever across the world of internet or offline world except that Mr. Kapil says he will reveal it via his twitter account.

I too put lot of thoughts and trying to decode what exactly it could be which seems to be pretty interesting concept and here are some of my ideas and thoughts about this interesting event or show or league.

Here is one interesting clue which Kapil dev gives in this video below.

What I guess is its some kind of exclusive reality show to all the cricketers, sportsmen, sportswomen out there to participate during their free time and entertain and make some money and give the winning money to some charity or NGO or some organization which helps the needful people. This way, sportsmen and sportswomen out there participate and contribute for good cause to the world meanwhile entertaining the One billion plus Indians and billions of fans across the world. Sounds interesting? I may be completely wrong here, but still trying to guess.

In this below video Kapil dev gives another clue which I am trying to decode.

Mr. Kapil dev tries to bring in Sania Mirza’s and generally the achievements of Women sports persons in India and how they are shining in world, which gives a clue that the league would encourage and give a platform for the budding women sport stars from India to achieve great heights in the sports world. Again, this is simply a try from my end.

Here in the below video Mr. Kapil dev talks about how the sports persons across the world makes hell lot of money, and why not our Indian sports persons couldn’t make much and also talks about how Yuvraj Singh could fetch very good money for himself via Indian Premier League (IPL), and this clue gives me a thought that this Ek Nayi League is definitely something while helps the current and retired players and gives them opportunity to earn some money too.

Lastly the below video gives more interesting thought.

Here Kapil dev talks about bringing in different star sports people to his show , which gives me a thought that its some kind of a TV show which might feature lot of our favourite sports personalities to one place and play a fantasy game with them. Kinda weird guess, but hey! Nothing to lose to try our guess.

If you have any guesses, please do leave in the comments section or on the site itself by filling in a simple form, you may win get a chance to win Rupees 1 Lakh too. Try your luck and win.

Staying Together Helps

Today I am going to share a small story of mine in my life about how being together with my close ones I love, respect and adore gave me the strength and motivation which I was badly needed to move on in my life on that particular day.

This happened on my exam results day some fifteen years back when I had flunked in three examination papers of mine due to my health issues when I couldn’t study for my exams and somehow I had attended the exams to see if I can still write the exam and wrote whatever I could recollect on that day. But, on the results day, as expected I was failed in those papers and I was so upset on that day and I even had suicidal intents.  It was my close friends in my college who were there with me for whole day, motivated me, helped me come out of situation by telling positive stories, not to worry too much about the subjects and calmed me and cheered me up to take the exams in next fall so that I can move ahead in life. There did not leave me alone even for one minute and were there with me will they safely took me to house in the evening and handed over to my family. They really gave me strength and motivation to move on with my day. As days passed on, I came back to normal track, and I re-applied for the exams. I joined some part time work till my next exam days and also studied hard this time. On the supplement exams day, I was totally charged and wrote my exams with full confidence. I got very good results in those flunked papers and I cleared all my papers. Later I got the certificate some days after and I was really happy then. If at all my friends were not there with me on that day to help me, motivate me and take me to right direction, the situation would have been worse that day.

So, friends, never let any situation control your mind and take drastic decisions in your life, #staytogether with your friends, family and closed ones when you come across suicidal thoughts and I am sure they will help you come out of any tough situation and help you getting ahead of any bad situation in your life. Always keep trust and optimism in yourself. There is nothing bigger than life and losing it doesn’t help you or your family in any way rather it would cause more upset to your family members.

I hope this short story would also help someone who is online and wants some motivation and optimism too who is going through tough times in his/her life.

How I Started A New Life

This is a small write up on a situation when I was indecisive about my next step in my life around nine years back when I was in dilemma to get married or not and how I changed my mind and started a New life. For whatever reason and after seeing so many unsuccessful and unhappy marriages of my friends and colleagues, I had made up my mind that I would ever not marry any girl in my life and live my life as a bachelor. I had seen and heard enough stories from colleagues, relatives etc., on how much dissatisfied with their married life and how much troubles they had to face and do the compromises in their life to lead a married life. Honestly, it was kind of scary feeling about getting married. I was 26 years then and I had good job in hand, no fear about work or leading life, but somehow all those live issues seen via my friends lives, made me paranoid about marriage. I almost waited and wasted more than two years deciding whether to get married or not. Well, the situation in home and my mother’s old age forced me to change my perception about marriage and I finally agreed to get married at the age of 28 due to unavoidable challenges in my family. I did lot of search in different cities and after rejecting many and getting rejected by many, finally could agree to get married to a lovely girl from Mysore. Its kind of love at first sight for both us. We both agreed instantly within a day and told our decisions to marry each other to our families, things moved so fast that within four months of seeing her for the first time, we got married to each other. All processes moved so smoothly that there were no hiccups at all. Both families are so happy too about our marriage. And as expected and as I was being paranoid about marriage itself, nothing horrific happened in our married lives and we did lead a happy married life and there were no major issues in our family apart from petty fights once in a year or so. We were blessed with a lovely baby boy just after 2 years of marriage that completed the full circle of my family. Its my 10th year of marriage this year and still I am happy about my married life and never felt bad about it. Never felt ‘why did I get marry after all’. Thanks to my wife who is such a lovely and understanding lady who came in to my life. So, I don’t think there will be always a mishap in every family out there. My life itself changed my thinking perspective about marriage and I would suggest anybody who approaches me seeking advice to take a chance and get married and Start a new Life. I did come out from my pessimistic thoughts about marriage and optimistically started a new life and I am more than happy with it. So, Guys, don’t wait, go ahead and give a try to your next step of life if you have reached your marriage age and get married. Don’t be paranoid.

By the way, with my wife’s ideas about savings and the way she controlled the unnecessary expenses in our married life, we could save some money and planning to buy a house for us or planning to buy a residential land and construct house on that. I hope the real estate classified sites like housing etc., would helps us getting our dream home without brokerage to agents etc., This below video from housing show how optimism and looking up helps reaching the peak in the field.

My Look Up Story

In everyone’s life there are some moments which will fill you with some optimism to achieve something in one’s life. I would like to share one such moment which boosted up my optimism and could achieve something which I was thinking is not possible for me. There was a cyclothon organized by some company couple of years back when I was in dual minds weather to participate in there or not because I was never a cyclist nor an athlete, but somewhere in my mind, I had this little wish to participate in one of such events and I was bit hesitant too when I imagined the tough part which is actual work to do.  There was still couple of weeks for the registration of that event, I read a news about a marathon where a person with aesthetic leg completed the run successfully and got appreciations from all over, that moment hit me hard and triggered the optimism in me which motivated me to register for the Cyclothon and on the D-Day, with lot of effort and tirelessly riding in that event , taking lot of breaks in between,  I could finally complete that 25 KM cycle ride which gave me that sense of a achievement which is priceless.  In our day to day life, we do come across so many live examples who achieve the impossible tasks with little motivation and their optimistic attitude which take them to further heights in their lives. We should just look around and help improving our lives too.  There are many physically disabled children, adults who don’t depend on others for their livelihoods, don’t bet or cheat and earn their breads themselves which are all truly the motivating examples for people who are lazy in their lives and does nothing by wasting their precious amount of times by participating in illegal activities, anti-social activities etc., If people were not optimistic in their lives, there would not be so many research and inventions would have happened in human life which helps us in day to day life and eases their work, effort put in achieving something etc., There would not be any technological advances in today’s life, there wouldn’t be any hi-tech devices floating around in this world which is helping the mankind. We wouldn’t have reached the Moon or dreamt about going to Mars. All is possible due to some people’s optimistic attitude their lives and work. Finally I wind out this little story of mine with a simple quote.. “Be optimistic, be a winner in life” . You follow that and you can achieve anything in life. As someone said, “Nothing is impossible” . If you have true attitude and optimism, even you can fly one day on your own. I came across this amazing campaign from whose vision statement reads “TO HELP THE WORLD LIVE BETTER”  and they are promoting the exact thoughts on the optimism, innovation and helping people to achieve their goals in life to buy a better home for them using their simplistic , yet effective and innovative search mechanism while looking to buy houses which also helps the buyers save money by avoiding the brokers or any middlemen. Do check out their website and the mobile applications which simplifies the house hunt, also they help in getting amazing loan offers from banks too without any hassles.
