A Rainy Day..

"A Rainy Day" is a short and a simple poem about the first rain.. Its my first ever attempt at writing english poetry, hope I do not disappoint..:)
On a rainy day..
I was here, near my window,
watching the water flow..
Droplets trying to stick to the window glass
as if trying to surpass..
Each droplet tried its best..
but none could enter, despite sheer zest

On a rainy day..
I was here, near my window,
watching the water flow..
I could hear the rain shout,
"I am here now, just come out.."
I could smell the earth's relief,
Which came after, long wait and belief.. 

On a rainy day..
I was here, near my window,
watching the water flow..
When the wind blew, I could see the branches dance
as if its a holiday, after the sun's summer class..
I could see clouds covering the sun
as if a new era has begun..

May Every drop contain a blessing
and reaches to every living being..
So enjoy nature's blessings and have loads of fun
wishing everybody a "HaPPyy RaInY SeAsON"

                                                                -Dhruvv
                     

P.S. : My heartfelt condolences to all Uttarakhand flood victims.
May god provide them strength and resources to overcome such devastation.

A bit for women..

Its strange that despite such a huge numbers of protests the rapes continue and not just continue..they are now happening at increased numbers..
Alarming sign!!
Protesting and asking for safety will go on for ages..
Protesting is important, but we need to do something ourselves..
Why cant we as young people come forward?
We should now ask..
If our government cannot provide safety to women, why we, as citizen cannot ensure security?
The idea is to make groups of like minded people, living in the vicinity..
Ask the police officials about the areas where there is maximum probability of crime against women and the timings..
Have a patrol around it, especially during late nights and wee hours..
Coordinate with other groups and with police as well..
A small area is a microcosm of a country..
If each one of us keep our surrounding safe in effect our country will be safe..

BE BOLD STAY REAL..

A post about boldness and being real.











"Be bold and stay real.."
seems like a tagline of a sports brand or any product that has to connect with youth..:P

On a serious note
"Being bold" is all about expressing yourself, through your actions, words, intentions etc..
Its about displaying or revealing the real "You"..
Its not always about standing out from the crowd, but to never shy from standing out if need be..
Infact, it is when the side, on which the crowd is, does not matter..
Its about manifesting your views, irrespective of their acceptability, if they are logical and based on true evidences..(reality)
Its about thinking rationally and that is where "staying real" comes in to picture..
One cannot be bold by not being real. One has to be authentic and notice the real concerns of the world.

"Be bold and stay real.." is the philosophy of revolutionaries and reformists. They identify realities, change the mindsets and positively impact the societies.. It is for this purpose our constitution has endowed us with "Right to speech"(Right to express), so that as people change the administrative setup also is in sync.
Its our responsibility to be bold and express what we truly feel and help our issues resolved.
I think boldness should be so inherent, so that we need not use the word "bold" explicitly..

India needs to be bold and real more than ever before and she is being bold and real.
With the advent of internet as a platform, people have access to quick and authentic information and to share and express via social media. Also the emergence of television and print media as an impactful entity facilitated freedom of expression.
Media, in many ways, appears bold and to the point on many issues, but in many cases we misinterpret speculations, hype and sensationalism as boldness. Its time "the aam aadmi" searches for reality and presents a bold opinion of his accounts.
The self regulation of media also contributed to the cause free expression..

The Indian cinema on the other hand has become bolder undoubtedly.
They have a more women-oriented approach. Women now celebrate their "womanhood" on celluloid.
The film-makers now also present their opinions and vision on issues as contentious as homosexuality, sex education, child-trafficking, political criticism etc. but again with censorship..:P

As far as the legal system is concerned, there is a bill called "Whistleblower's bill"(pending in parliament), which ensures to protect the whistleblower i.e. people who expose the corrupt system.

Even in the recent Anna Hazare movement, there were people from all classes who registered their support and demonstrated "boldness"..Earlier we never saw such protest..
Even in protests against the rapes in Delhi, we saw the boldness of people pressurizing the government authorities, which resulted in expeditious drafting of bill.

Even the business sector is broadening its horizon and investing in previously unpreferred areas like power, airlines etc.

Overall, we see a climate of "boldness", which gives a sense of positivity, but there is always a scope for improvement.

So don't trifle down stiflings..
Express Your self..
"Be bold and stay real"..

Reliance Digital Experience..

"Reliance Digital Experience" was a joined initiative by Indiblogger and Reliance Digital. It was           about letting bloggers experience the store and blog about it.
 I along with my fellow bloggers paid a visit to 

Reliance Digital Retail
The First Impression
FF-52, R-city mall, Phase 2, LBS Marg
Ghatkopar west, Mumbai.


About Reliance Digital:
"Reliance Digital" is a technology retail arm of Reliance Retail Ltd, which is a subsidiary of Reliance Industries Ltd. "Reliance" is undoubtedly a reliable and a trustworthy brand in present Indian scenario.

Experience:

As I entered the R-city mall, holding the Indi-blogger invite, through various security checks, I saw a big banner of  "Reliance Digital Store", providing the description and direction to reach the store.

I reached the store and the first reaction was like "its so cool.."..:P
Right at the outset, I understood, why do they stress on the word "Experience"..
Then, I went inside flagged my Indi-invite and accompanied the store manager
(Mr Atul Jayaraman), along with other bloggers, for visiting the store..

We started from outside the store..
I could see two LCD TVs, a laptop and a computer through the glass..
On one LCD TV, you can have a look at yourself, like a front-end camera in mobile devices..
The rest of the devices were playing some animations..
It gave an initial signal, that the experience would be interactive..

Experience Pillar for Cameras.
I could sense the purpose of such a display of devices was to be "live" or constantly in action i.e. this is not going to be a dull, typical store, where you can roam around, see but not "experience" or be involved..

So, with these expectations I entered the store(along with the manager and others), 
I found a person greeting me with "namaste".. This showed the "Indian-ness", the cultural relevance of the organization. We greeted him back with a smile..

The Store Manager, then briefed us about the concept of "Experience Pillars"..
The store has innovatively used the pillars around the store for providing customers with better experience.
They are basically like a round table kind of of structure(ref pic.), where the products of a particular category e.g cameras are kept for letting people experience.







Specification chart
Then We  moved on to the Experience pillar for mobiles. The variety of mobiles was phenomenal.
Experience Pillar for mobiles
I chatted with the guy, near the pillar. He explained me the variety of smart phones on display. He discussed about all my doubts with a smile.
I must say, he possessed a sound knowledge about the mobile technology..
The chart which showed the the specification was extremely user friendly..


Gaming Experience






Then came, the super-exciting gaming section..
The most awesome thing about the store was that they let you experience video games and motion gaming..
This assured me that this store does not compromise on its ideology of letting customers experience before they buy..
I could see a young boy almost getting immersed  in the game. A treat to watch..:P


The next amazing thing in this store was the Home theatre experience section. Here you can experience the home theatre like you would in your living room.
A room was especially reserved for this purpose. This along with experience pillars were the standout features of reliance digital..




Few things I liked about the Reliance Digital Store
are:
1. Experience.
2. Indifference to brands.
3. Staff.
4. Variety.

 Atlast, they provided us with "I-pod Shuffle", it was really an endearing gesture..:)

Do give a visit to this store to have an awesome shopping experience..
They focus on solutions rather than brands..
You will celebrate your shopping there for sure..:)

This pretty much summed up for entire experience..

Thank You Indi-Blogger and Reliance Digital for providing us with this amazing opportunity..:)
