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.

Dear Blog,
This is the first time I’m writing a letter to you. Hope you receive it in time. It’s been a while since I thought of writing a letter to you, to tell you how important you are to me. We have been together since few years now but there was hardly a time we spoke to each other. I believe there’s no better way than a snail mail to fill up this gap. Frankly speaking I can’t recollect what motivated me to start a blog but I do remember how the enthusiasm kicked in and we started writing our own history together. We started the journey with youthful rhymes. Yeah! I remember why we decided it to be named as “rhymes” & not poems. It was because we didn’t consider ourselves to match the level of those celebrated poets. We considered ourselves rookie in this field but I must say I enjoyed and still do the way we wrote rhymes & were eager to publish it to the world. We were like a drop in the sea but what encouraged us was that now we are the part of the sea! Year passed and we…

#EverWonderedWhy clock's hands move clockwise?

One of the everyday thing which we use all around the world is a clock. It has become such an integral part of our lives that neither the day starts nor the night ends without it. But have you #EverWonderedWhy clock's hands move clockwise? i.e.: From left to right. Why is it not the other way round?

The answer to our curiosity lies in sundials and in which Earth's hemisphere the clock was invented in.

Sundials was an earlier mechanism which were used to keep the track of time. They used to cast shadows with reference to the sun's position as it moved from East to West.

Later when civilizations advanced mechanical clocks replaced the sundials. But even though they replaced them, the mechanical clocks where calibrated to match the speed of the movement of shadow of the sundials and also its direction of movement.

My Five Takeaways From 2017

It wasn’t until I retrospect that I was amazed how eventful at so many different levels the year 2017 was. It ushered my life in the way I think, behave and pass my time and by doing that it made me ready to start the year 2018 afresh. 
Although there are many takeaways from this year I’d like to jot down the most influential: My five takeaways from 2017
1. Education My college days are over 6 years back. Still I always had this urge to learn something new. This year finally after a much lingered thought I did a certification. I must say that going through this process of learning oiled those jammed gears in action. It brought in new ideas and zeal to pursue something new. That feeling my friends is unmatched!
2. Family & Friends This year I was hospitalized for the first time in my life! The experience was dreadful. It really doesn’t matter who you are or how much money you have. You suffer nonetheless. It’s how many people you have hold on to that counts in times like these. Family &a…
