Say "Haanji" to the Superfast 4G

An airline just announced a special offer of flight bookings at just Rs. 799 (of course, with the infamous asterisk symbol indicating "taxes excluded"). It requires you to simply download the app and the offer is valid for just 24 hours. You know the drill that happens across the nation and you know how the Murphy's law loves you - Thousands would book the tickets and all the best dates and locations would be unavailable before you know!

So, you decide that this time you would not waste any moment and book that long pending Goa trip right away. You wonder why you never had that airline's app on your phone (c'mon, why would you if they never announced such a tempting offer until this day!).

So you take the usual path:
Play Store -> Search for app -> Install -> Wait until that irritating blue line completes its journey over the grey line at a snail's pace so that the Open App button appears!

Ouch! Those few seconds / minutes feel like a lifetime, isn't it? Even after the app starts, entering those dates, checking availability, blah, blah, blah... takes forever. And needless to say, by the time you find what you want, Murphy's law wins hands down and teases you with "Not Available"!

And there goes Goa!

C'mon! You can do better.

Haanji, now the superfast 4G has arrived! It is the answer to your every "If only..."

  • If only, that latest game downloaded faster.
  • If only you could find the nearest best restaurant as soon as the hunger pangs attacked on that long road trip.
  • If only the movie downloaded faster.
  • If only I could book the tickets before they were sold out.
  • If only my GPS loaded faster.
  • If only all my 100+ party pics got uploaded while I was still partying!
  • If only I could whatsapp my boyfriend that dad is home before he rang the bell ;)


Yes, Airtel 4G has arrived and how! It's your wish come true at the blink of an eye. Don't take my word for it, the Airtel Challenge proves it all - If your network is faster, they'll pay your mobile bills for life! That's how confident they are, so the 4G definitely is way faster than whatever you have experienced till date.



And here's the icing on the cake - You can enjoy #Airtel4G at the SAME PRICE as 3G!!!

Still feel it is too good to be true? Well, how about visiting your nearest Airtel store for a demo of the fastest network ever! Just step in to the store on your way back home today and your internet speed would always bring a smile to you.

Save it!

What is probably the most commonly saved thing in the Universe?

Five-Sentence Fiction: The Red Lipstick


He entered the house full of a dozen women and faked a smile. They kept staring at him and then they looked at her.

She was embarrassed and furious at the same time. He opted for a jeans and a tee instead of the formals she had instructed him to wear, but at least, he could have wiped off the red lipstick, especially when she had told him earlier that she would be inviting her friends over.

She had told them that he was an investment banker, but he loved being a clown and wearing that red lipstick!

The cat who couldn't frighten a mouse away


She brought home a new mouse, white like a snowflake and with a surprisingly long tail. Her cat didn't like how she spent all the time with her new pet now. She petted the mouse all the time... while working, while reading and even while eating.

The envious cat couldn't scare the mouse away. It waited for the right moment and eventually, when she went to the balcony to attend a call, the cat chewed away the mouse cord!

Five-Sentence Fiction: Excel with a smile

She decided to wear one of the four XL-sized tees she had bought online. She missed fitting in the medium-sized outfits stuffed in her wardrobe. Oh, the side effects of medication!

The tags of the new tees irritated her and she just couldn't remember where she had kept the scissor. She wore a new tee nevertheless and accessorized it with her smile, like always.

Five-Sentence Fiction: Penny



He knocked on her door in his trademark style, "Penny, Penny, Penny."

She didn't  answer the door. He tried several times, but in vain.

She had gained pounds and didn't relate to the word Penny anymore.

Bazinga!

3 Reasons reason why "S" gets kicked out

Ever wondered why was the letter "S" spared from the names of some numbers? Why aren't 200, 300, 400, etc. called Two Hundreds, Three Hundreds, Four Hundreds and so on?

Perhaps, the letter "S" was too overworked among the set of consonants.

My belief is mostly based on my own baseless logic and one fact. 
  1. Most of my friends' names begin with the letter "S" or have the letter "S". For instance, my friends include Sushmita, Sudakshina, Sandeep, Sagarika, Sanjeev, Sakshi, Salma, Saru... the list is long and as I would have said in a speech had I received an award, "I am sorry if I missed anyone's name here!"
  2. The plurals! Poor "S" got its ass kicked like how! Thank God for Men, Women and Children who saved some usage of the letter's plural overwork!

Of nightmares, losses and a reality check


I woke up to a nightmare of losing someone very close to me. Perhaps it was the effect of watching back to back episodes of Monk last night. But it felt so real...

       Tara went through some of Cyrus' blog posts again and paid attention to what his readers had to say. She was not surprised to see that the comments on his posts were very strong. 

      While the readers loved his writing style, they objected his views on how the criminals could have gotten away with their wrongdoings. Many condemned him for writing from the perspective of saving criminals. The comment threads were long with some writing swear words while others warning him that they would report his blog. Yet, Cyrus had not replied on any comment.
