Ever since I heard about Google’s Android OS powered phones I was very much keen to have one for myself. But back then it wasn’t possible to get it as I was still in college making a living on pocket money. Being a tech lover, the cool features of the OS and the concept of a smart phone fascinated me a lot. 

Life moved on and the day finally came on 22nd Jan’ 2012 when with my ‘khoon pasina ek kar ke I brought my very first Google Android smart phone. The moment of having a smart phone in my hand took me to a whole new level of happiness. Touch screen phone featuring 3.5” display and the ultimate Gingerbread Android OS. Whoa!! It was dream come true. Google Maps, Gtalk, Gmail, Games, GPS, Notes, Music, Video, Internet, Camera (with 5MP, LED flash and autofocus) so on and so forth. It was like having access to n number of things just a swipe or touch away. I could still remember that sheer amazement I felt when I could do everything with just a soft touch on the screen. It was a good riddance to the hard unresponsive keys of my old phone. I was and still am a proud user of Gingerbread Android OS.

Time has finally come to get ahead in the race with the latest stuff. And the best smart phone released in the market [psst. one which also fits my budget!!] is none other than 2nd Gen #MotoE from Motorola.

I #ChooseToStart my journey of my most loved Android OS with 2nd Gen #MotoE which packs in the sweetest OS ever released - ‘Lollipop’. I always wanted to have my hands on this OS ever since its release. The best part I like about Motorola is that it always comes with a Pure Android OS experience; which helps unleash the best of the Android OS and if that wasn’t enough for you then Motorola backs up their consumers with the upgrades of the Android OS too (Yes, they are listening to needs of their consumer and that’s what I love about this company).

Another feature that catches my eye is that 2nd Gen #MotoE has a very casual way of styling. The curved back completely distinguishes it from the rest of the lot. The variety of colours given to the new Grip Shells combines styling with superior grip on the candy-bar phone. This combination is cool ‘ekdam hatke’; the way I like it. I like the different/vibrant colours they come in.
What’s surprising for me was 2nd Gen #MotoE is inheriting a lot of features from Moto X. It’s like ‘chote packet mein bada dhamaka’. For example is the ‘Quick Capture’ feature. All you need to do is twist your wrist twice to launch the camera and twist twice once again to switch to the front-facing camera. Yeah!! You read it right. It does have a front facing camera. The 2nd Gen #MotoE has a VGA front facing camera, to woo the selfie lovers.
Being from the IT sector, I also look for the core specifications apart from the basic features of my phone. And you’ll be astounded to see what upgrades Motorola has given to 2nd Gen #MotoE: 

1st Gen. Moto E
2nd Gen. Moto E
4G LTE Support
Dual-core 1.2 GHz
Quad-core 1.2 GHz
Battery Backup
1980 mAh
2390 mAh
Internal Memory
4 GB
8 GB
Display Size
Auto Focus Feature
(Primary Camera)



All said, I look forward to #ChooseToStart my day with new Moto E waking me up, helping me connect with my friends, capturing the best of the moments, making my travel experience more lively and more over make myself more connected to the world.

Life is a box of emptiness..

In valley of singing birds and a river, lived a brother and his sister in a wooden cabin. His name was Daniel and hers Shirley. Daniel used to earn bread by cutting timber and Shirley was in school. He was creative whereas she was curious!


As monsoon approaches it kindles a sweet memory of a mesmerizing trek. A Fireflies special trek to Rajmachi with Backpack Holidays.

Rajmachi also known as Udhewadi is a base village for the two marvellous forts Shrivardhan and Manaranjan. They are situated in the mighty Sahyadri mountain range in Lonavala and Khandala, Maharashtra. Shrivardhan fort the taller of the two forts stands at an altitude of 3000 feet above sea level where as Manaranjan fort reaches at an altitude of 2700 feet above sea level. On the way to these summits there are more surprises than you can think of!

The journey began via Mumbai local train from the rendezvous point Dadar to Karjat which takes approx. 2 hrs. I utilized this stretch to get acquainted with fellow enthusiastic trekkers. It’s one of those times when you get to know the most genuine experiences of trekkers, get excited with their enthusiasm and look forward to explorer yet another uncharted territory.
Individuals boarded the train at Dadar but a gro…

You never know..

It was a gloomy night. He was walking on the footpath kicking stones cursing the day. It was a really exhaustive day for him.


Shifting in the bed realising why the alarm hasn't gone off yet, he looked at the clock. The hands of the clock showed 1:25. He was closing eyes thinking he got up in the middle of night when suddenly his attention turned towards the vase at the back of the clock which was shimmering in golden light. Shocked, he turned behind to see the sun has risen already! He immediately checked his mobile for the exact time and popped out of his bed cursing the alarm clock.
