If you compare the retail markets as we see today with what it used to be around two years back, you’ll see that there has been a revolutionary change in how the retailers sell and how the customers look at the products. A general Indian consumer two years ago was obsessed with brands and the trust factor while today he thinks more about the product and not the brand that’s behind it. I believe that’s the right way to go, but not in all the fields – particularly in the mobile phone markets.

As you must have seen a plethora of companies entering the Indian markets with tonnes of new phones with highly buffed specs and competitive prices, it becomes all the more difficult to make an informed choice. On one hand you see a phone with all the specs you needed and that too at a price less than you could imagine. On the other hand you have a comparatively expansive phone but with a brand-name that you have trusted for ages. It is understandable how you’ll get confused which way to go and probably end up regretting your decision.

This is the time when a little bit of research comes to your rescue. If you dig a little deeper in the markets, you’ll find that there is a wide range of Sony mobile phones with great features under the range of 10,000 INR. Now who wouldn’t prefer the same OS, a superb camera and the trust of Sony with it? It is quite evident that the customer today wants a better product and cares for his money more than ever. And these phones satisfy those exact needs. Personally, I’m an android fan, and I love to flaunt what I own. So it becomes an easy choice for me once I take a look at those beautiful phones.

Take a look at the beauties yourself!


There are hundreds of phones available that will eat up your pocket and still go out of fashion within a year or two. It is only intelligent to go for a phone that you like and save money along with it. While the aforementioned collection has all the phones you’d need to look at and make a choice to save some precious bucks, you have the trust of Sony attached when you make a purchase, so you know that you’re getting the best deal!

With a great life comes great responsibility! Or maybe something like that, I might not remember the saying but I do know that I have a lot of responsibilities. And when you have targets that are big, small things shouldn’t take up much time of yours. So with this way of thinking, it was obvious that I hate it when I have to remember what recharges to do on my numbers, which is the best plan of the thousands that are there and to make sure I don’t spend too much on this. But thankfully, there are apps to make your life easier. Or at least that’s what I used to think till I got tired of the numerous apps and there notifications. So to put an end to all that I downloaded the MyAirtel app. And let me tell you that this is one app you need to have if you have an Airtel connection.

Let me tell you about a few things I liked, the three best features that suit my lifestyle. I’m an IT guy who likes to stay connected to the web all the time and needs to make long calls to get things done. So primarily I look for something that offers me faster and cheaper data and well suited plans for my talktime. Good thing that Airtel gave me my first recharge for free when I downloaded the app!

  1. The first thing I liked the most about the app was amalgamation of all the airtel services in one app. So it doesn’t matter if you’re looking for DTH or Internet or your bill payment for telephone connection, this app will do that. It saves me the hassle of going to different websites to pay the bills and wait for offers that are good for nothing.

  1. That’s two features I’m talking about. One, the fact that I can store my favorite tasks as favorites and quickly access them. And another that I can easily set alerts so I don’t have to remember the next time I need to get a recharge done.

Oh, and another that whenever I make a transaction, I get free stuff! Yes! There are airtel surprises no matter what you do on the app. I was just not sure which feature is better so I called it a tie.

  1. The app only offers. It feels good when you’re rewarded for something and the app only offers do exactly that. Offers like free data and extra talktime make every transaction on the MyAirtel app a rewarding experience.

There are many more amazing features in the app, like the control features and customisation options for both your mobile and dish TV, you’ll know once you install it in your phones from here. Find out the link which is suited for your phone. Airtel is one of the best service providers in the country and this will definitely help us get a better experience from it.

So I’m watching this Pepsi IPL game and one of my friends asks me what is this #EkNayiLeague that everybody is talking about on twitter. I had no idea, and to be honest, I was also kind of intrigued if this was a new league with some other sport like the one we had last year with Football and Kabaddi. He wasn’t wrong in thinking that I should know about it, given that I’m on twitter almost all the time and my love for sports is only next to my love for food. So considering that, I logged in and tried finding out what is this EkNayiLeague! But to my surprise, apart from a few teasers, there was literally no revealing information. So I just guessed.

What is this Ek Nayi League? Is it a Golf league as I had thought, or is it yet another dance show with a flavor of sports? Is it something along the lines of a quiz or is it a talk show? You could keep guessing, but I made some intelligent guesses with these videos.

As Kapil is talking about the League in these videos, some of the things he mentions are:

  1. You won’t need to use your heart in this.
  2. He talks about how young people achieve so much in today’s India and compares it to his time.
  3. He talks about people who made it big despite difficulties (Sania, Yuvvraj, Kapil Sharma and M.S Dhoni, all have seen great struggles in their times)
  4. And last, he talks about how one is always young and shouldn’t retire.

Now combine all these, or well, some of these and you get something which is entirely different from what we generally see on television. So according to me, our first ever world cup winning captain is going to bring us a show where he is going to reward the young achievers. I think it will be something where we’ll celebrate the people who achieved a lot despite all the problems they had in life and made it big. And obviously, it will contain some kind of competition based on knowledge and that’s why you’re not supposed to use your heart. Obviously these are all speculations, for all I know it could be a talk show with Sania Mirza and Yuvvraj Singh! One more guess for me would be that it will contain a lot of interaction with our old cricketers.

But what tells me that it is going to be different and a treat to watch is the presence of Kapil Paji in it. The man is one of the most respected sportsmen in the country and he won’t be coming on TV if it wasn’t for something uber cool! So fingers crossed. In case you want to know more about the EkNayiLeague, you should stay connected to the twitter account of Kapil Dev where he will soon reveal the mystery. Also, check out for more info.
