ASUS Zenfone2 : Redefine your smartphone experience!

From a senior citizen to a tantrum-throwing eight year old, everyone owns a Smartphone these days and why not? They have made our lives so simpler that we just can’t live a day without them. The foremost and crucial features that I see in a phone are: battery life, processor speed, storage features, camera resolution and the display screen size with the pixel density of course. When I was looking around for a smartphone with the best of these principal features, I came across ASUS Zenfone 2 and I can say that it’s the best in its class.

1) Excellent performance at 2.3ghz:

The ASUS Zenfone 2 runs on 2.3GHz 64-bit Intel® Atom™ Z3580 processor that is consolidated with a 4GB RAM ( which is present in no other smartphone in the world.

It promises a performance that is 3x times superior and gaming experiences that are 7x times better.

2) Amazing camera:

ASUS Zenfone 2 comes with a camera of 13MP PixelMaster camera and f/2.0-aperture lens that I can use to capture memories on the go. It also promises high resolution photographs with zero shutter lag. Its one-of-a-kind low light mode is supposedly the best in its class as it comes along with pixel merging technology which ensures 400% brighter photos even during the nighttime. It also has a real tone flash that brings out precise colors and tones on every picture that you click! Now you don’t have to hesitate in capturing countless memories in the dark as well.

3) Ultra-thin luxurious arc design:

The ultra-thin ergonomic arc design in an ASUS Zenfone 2 surely is eye-catching and outright snazzy. It comes along with ASUS signature style of concentric detailing that proves to be a little too different and absolutely stunning. It has a 5.5 inch display that smoothens and speeds up the pace at which the tasks are done using this Smartphone. Moreover, it comes with a 72% screen- to-body ratio that provides you nothing but a marvel in the palms of your hands.

4) Dual sim:

Well, who doesn’t love a dual SIM phone? One SIM set aside for your work-related discussions and another to suit your personal lifestyle. Two SIM’s in one extraordinary  Smartphone. With the ASUS Zenfone 2 , you can effortlessly and seamlessly switch SIM’s and certainly ,never ever miss any calls!

5) Boostmaster:

The battery life being  of paramount importance to me, the ASUS doubles the remarkable battery performance with the Boostmaster feature. The exclusive ASUS technology that is ASUS BoostMaster technology ensures that your battery speedily charges to 60% in not more than 39 minutes. This means that you could be charging your phone at double its speed and also use your phone for a longer duration.

Sharing happiness with the old

Have you ever wondered what would happen one day when you grow old and grow an abundance of grey hair on your head? When your hands and legs turn frail and so weak that you would need somebody to help you move around. When you cannot speak clearly and always end up speaking things which sound to be so gibberish that people avoid and ignore your every other talk. When you want to do something in life but you neither have the time nor the energy to do them all!
Yes, these things are the precise thoughts that came across my mind on my visit to an old age home some years back. It was just another visit scheduled from school (on our request) and we went there along with all our friends in order to interact with the old aged people who have nobody but each other to spend their few moments and few years.
As usual, school kids were hyper excited to go to a place apart from school. Even I along with all my friends was pretty much excited and was in fact, waiting for it from a long time. Just to see how the old people talk and whether they are friendly, jovial or just, plainly sober-faced.
When we went there, we all had our eyes well up, because it was exactly different from what we supposed it to be. It was not a place where you find merriment or happiness. In fact, it was devoid of everything. It had just that little force that kept them together and going every single day of their lives. They had just nobody.
That was when I saw this lady who was so old and haggardly that she was carried in a wheelchair to and fro, as she met the school kids including me. She had a smile etched on her face and her eyes were so small that I was sure she could barely see our faces. She was told by her caretaker that we are school kids and she was happy to hear about it.
She weakly grabbed my friend’s hand and started speaking away. She spoke to us about her family and how her sons and daughters had left her and fled. We were really upset and my friend and I spoke to her about our daily things at school so that we could put her into a lively mood. Half of what we said was never really understood by her. But she was very happy listening to us speak, because she had never really spoken to anybody in many years. From the time her family abandoned her, she was left alone and desolated. Thereafter, we quickly decided to sing a few devotional songs to her so that she feels entertained and delighted.
That day, after speaking to us, she was highly elated and she thanked us for coming there. She kept saying how grateful she was for meeting her and said that we made those few moments so special. We believe that that day was indeed magical for her. We were extremely glad at the end of the day that we fortunately struck a #DilKiDeal , followed our hearts and visited this place.
It’s surprising how several children shun their parents in their old age and put them in old age homes with no intention of taking care of them. I think everyone should take their time off and spend it with these old people. Maybe then we could share some happiness with them as well.

Surprises!

Who doesn’t like surprises? When you are going through times that could pull you apart and squeeze every bit of happiness from what’s left of you, you would surely be in need of something special to abruptly arise and bring that MAGIC into your life. I’ve always enjoyed surprises. Whether it is about gifting myself or others, there is this contentment and elation I experience in every single gesture. Moreover, I’ve also learnt very well that, “There is more happiness in giving than taking.” Don’t you agree with this? Well, I certainly do!
Maybe that’s why I always take some time off and gift my family with goodies which they awfully enjoy. Because, life is all about sharing. In sharing we gain happiness that cannot be paralleled with any other.

It happened a few days back. When I earn some decent money through content writing, blogging or any other such task, I habitually gift others and myself. Well, this time I decided to gift my grandparents. We all know that it’s in the very rarest of the cases, that people generally think about the old people in their homes or otherwise. So, this time I decided to go out of the way and gift them things that they might be in need. They don’t live in my home so that would mean that surprising them through gifts would be a better and an interesting idea too. What could be better than choosing a decent e-commerce portal like Snapdeal and sending gifts? So, that’s what I did. It’s in these simple gestures that we can share the happiness not only among people in our homes but also who stay far away. In my case, I happened to surprise my grandparents.
That day, I shopped a few things online and directed the address to theirs. So that was it. The surprise gifts would reach them in a few days time.
As it was scheduled, the gifts reached the destination much prior than what was scheduled and boy, where they surprised? They were very happy and most of all, they did not realize who sent them those gifts. Later that night, I called them to say that it was me. They were delighted indeed.

It was that day that I realized that there is so much happiness in giving that I hadn’t experienced before. Generally, we are so selfish in our everyday lives that we often think about ourselves and how we could do better to ourselves. But we seldom realize how our considerate, solicitous and kind gestures can make someone’s day magical. All we have to do is extend that sharing hand and follow whatever our heart feels. It is only then that we can make someone’s moment a little extra special through these little gestures.
For, life is just short and we have only so much that we could do today. So why don’t we start with it, here and now?

Paving the way for an animal-loving future

It was another day packed with all mundane and monotonous events. Another day traveling home from college. There was nothing different except that today I had met this insanely annoying person, an acquaintance who constantly maundered about random things. I agree she had this thing for speaking. But spewing so much pessimism is not something I truly appreciate. She was ranting away about how Indians Ill treat animals by pelting stones or beating them just to get rid of them. She also said that she had a pet dog whom she took good care of. I agree that she lived a major part of her life abroad but that doesn’t mean that she should undermine the Indians so much when it comes to animals or the like. Every time we comes across a stray animal with a broken ear or a broken bone, it doesn’t really mean that people have ill-treated them for their pleasure. There are certain circumstances where you have to get rid of certain animals especially when you feel that they are potentially harmful. Take for example, you are walking on a deserted road and a furious dog scoots up towards you. Would you just stare and smile? You would obviously intend to harm it just to frighten it. But that doesn’t mean that Indians don’t care about animals.
Sometimes we need to focus on the positivity that emanates from our surroundings. Maybe then we will realize how to embrace a delightful life. I remember going to a friend’s home who had a pet cat as well as a pet dog. She took really good care of it by feeding it with proper healthy food and by petting it like as if it were her child. She also had made friends with some stray dogs who constantly stood outside the gates of her house. She is a happy-being communicating with animals and showing them her love. This filled me with a great deal of optimism and made me realize that animal lovers are not very few in India. Coming to speak about that, even I adore animals but I just don’t own a pet.
Especially the young generation seems to love animals more than ever. My neighbor alone has four pets and the little kid always sits by these animals and talks to them. It sounds funny but it’s true.
So you cannot blame people saying that animals are Ill treated. Only in the rarest of the cases that does happen. Everywhere we see people protesting against the slaughter of cows and the like; so doesn’t that mean these people possess a heart?
I agree the acquaintance I met in the bus must be a crazy animal lover but she’s seeing the part of India that brings in a whole lot of negativity.
After the long conversation, I unboarded the bus and walked towards my home. When on the way, I peeked over my neighbor’s gate only to see the little child again. He was feeding a small stray puppy. I looked at him and he smiled back. That moment I was infused with a great deal of optimism about people and animals. You cannot blame the whole world for a crime done by a single person. You need to accuse the person and not the place that he/she belongs to. If little kids like these care so much for animals at a very tender age, I’m sure we would be seeing more of such things in the future as well. We would probably have pet care centers located at required places so that we don’t see homeless stray animals wandering about . They would have shelter, food minus the ferocity. Today I feel more optimistic when I see tiny tots not pelting stones instead giving them shelter. I can finally #LookUp towards a future which would be taken care by affectionate and loving hands of young Indians. An  animal-loving future is what we optimistically hope for.

Embracing ‘Change’

It would be a hard choice. Everyone had told me so. Staying in the suburbs of a small city in south India, I never really had traveled to any place in north India. Moreover, I was also discouraged by a whole host of people regarding why I shouldn’t enroll myself in a college in Delhi. Considering India’s present situations , the perpetual terror that is seen in Delhi and other places in the North in the case of women, was something everybody kept advising me about. But all I wanted to do was pursue my passion in one of the leading colleges for mass media and communication in Delhi. The awesome infrastructure and support to students in placements were not to be found in any other college in the country; at least not much as Delhi seemed to provide. That’s why I had made a firm decision that I would definitely enroll myself there. But the fear that lay inside me was about the security for women or whether I would be safe at all. But let me tell you, when you really wish to do something in life, the odds are barely against you. In fact, they will always stay with you, forever in your favor.
And for this, I had to make a dauntless decision as to what I really needed in my life. Whether it was to be subdued by the talk of people who constantly undermined my capabilities or otherwise make an intrinsic decision to take a bold step towards my sought-after success. At least I had to have an unflinching determination to do the same.
Then one fine day I got myself enrolled in that college. It might have been a bold step for me, but I had to work it out somehow. I had to pursue my passion and for that I prevented others from negatively impacting me.
Delhi is a different place altogether. Unlike the indifferent people present in my city- Mangalore ,Delhi had extremely dynamic, passionate and zealous individuals. It’s a different world altogether. But studying in one of the best colleges makes these things seem absolutely trivial. Though I had a lot of trouble staying not only away from home but also much far away, I am now happy.
I believe that people should always stand by what they want to do. If an individual believes in himself or herself, then surely they can achieve whatever they have wished to or what they have dreamt of.
My final decision has ultimately paid off and now I’m absolutely delighted by the fact that I’m studying in Delhi. To start a new life, it all starts with us. We need to embrace change as it comes our way so that we could do the best that we can possibly do. In order to go a thousand miles, we still have to take that one step and that is what makes the difference. And trust me, when you embark on a journey to #StartANewLife, thereafter nothing else would matter anymore…

Share your happiness!

In our busy everyday lives, we get so engulfed and absorbed in stringent schedules that we fail to give a decent amount of time to ourselves. Amidst the tumult and chaos of busy routines, the very happiness, contentment and meaning of life seems to drown in oblivion. That’s why I made a quick decision to give time to myself hereafter and bring cheer into my already-boring life.
Happiness is not just a feeling, it’s a wonderful contagion. We tend to make others around us happy when we are happy. There is nothing better than wearing a smile on your face every day and let nature work its magic.

Here are a few things that make me happy on a quotidian basis:

1) A large swig of coca cola!
Who doesn’t enjoy pouring a glass of frozen coca cola down their desiccated throats during these scalding summers? The first thing I do when I get home after a busy day is to plop on my couch and take a large swig of coca cola. Moreover, there is no pleasure in savoring it all alone. I often share it with my family members and help share the happiness!
2) Hanging out with friends
Another best way that I choose to unwind myself in the weekends is to hang out with friends. Watch a movie or plainly, just hang out! After a strenuous week, having fun with my friends is what I enjoy doing. It indeed feels exhilarating and downright delightful. Moreover, it helps in warding off all the mundane sprits away.

3) Music
Another awesome and amazing pastime that makes me happy is to listen to soothing and euphonious music. The pleasant songs I listen immediately settles me into a wonderful mood and I’m all set for the rage of a busy day. My favorites are Enrique, Jay Sean, Taylor Swift, Evanescence or any other soothing melody does my job. All I have to do is prop my ear plugs into my ears and allow the magic of music to take over!

4) Writing
I’m an insatiable writer. Whether it is about penning down austere everyday issues or about brainstorming a piece of fiction , or even scribbling free verse drabbles, they always make me ecstatic. The sole purpose of writing for me is to carve a niche in people’s stereotypical minds or other times simply to flush my frustration of the day and switch to a happy mood. The more the writing happens, the better it turns out to be. Every day brings better memories and newer experiences. All of these craft out the writer in me. It makes me a whole person; it makes me radiant and rapturous. It helps me in evolving as a tactful person and a writer.

5) Sharing:
Sharing with the poor and the needy is another reason that makes me happy. I have always experienced more joy in giving than taking. What could be better than spreading one’s joy with others?

Life is so beautiful that we need to enjoy it thoroughly. We need to share the happiness that we possess because only in giving is there a mightier pleasure that overcomes everything else. We should strive to make happiness a chronic feeling.
Life is short and we have only little that we could do as of now, so why don’t we spread happiness and make this world a better place to live in? :)
