IN SEARCH OF INCREDIBLE gadgets, from my point of view, I am penning down this post. There are so many Big Brands currently available in the market boasting eye-catchy specifications at a price suited only for Big B’s; I do not want to name either of the one.

Be it a Mobile, Tablet or a Desktop, all I need is a brand that listen to the End Users and most importantly available to them at an affordable price without compromising any quality. One such find worthy enough is ASUS Zenfone. I switched from Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to Zenfone 6 last month, and I must say, it is worth buying! Now the next moto is to buy a Tablet, Desktop or a Laptop worth gifting to my lovely wife on our second anniversary.

ASUS gadgets changes our lifestyle to “Easy Mode”. It can be either simple, versatile, powerful and fully connected “ASUS All-In-One PC ET2040” or sleek, compact, lightweight, powerful and much needed “ASUS EeeBook X205TA”.

What should I gift her? EeeBook or All-In-One PC. I am confused a lot. First thing I did is to crosscheck the Specifications and Features.

Interesting! Both the specs impresses me a lot, good enough to buy both of them. If the specs are too good to ignore, then the only option available is to look at the options that will fulfil my needs.

EeeBook is ultra-thin, weighs less than 1KG, loaded with Windows 8.1, and Office 365 Subscription free for one year, and other wonderful options available whereas All-In-One PC is incredibly fast and responsive, space saving design, innovative gesture control, effortless multitasking, smooth switching between apps, and provides complete connectivity.

I do not need both of them, that’s for sure. What should I buy?

I am a practical man. I relist my needs.

  1. It should be thin, sleek and compact, easy to hold anywhere and anytime. Most importantly, it can be kept inside my wife’s handbag.
  2. Since we travel a lot, we need a good battery backup. Probably for eleven to fourteen hours.
  3. If it comes with Windows 8.1, then it would be an added advantage to us. Because we already use Windows 8.1 and Office Professional Plus. Moreover, Microsoft revealed that users could upgrade to Windows 10 free for one year.
  4. We write a lot especially during our travel.
  5. It should support multitasking otherwise it will not be easy to switch between apps.

And guess what matched my criteria?

It is Sleek on Style and Sleek in Price, On-The-Go Computing, 29.4cm Display with a Narrow Bezel Design, 36% Larger Touchpad, Quad-Core Processor for Smooth Multitasking performance, 500GB ASUS Web Storage free for Two Years, 1TB Microsoft One Drive Space free for One Year, Windows 8.1, One Year Office 365 Subscription Free and just 14,999 INR only – the one and only ASUS EeeBook X205!

I am going to order now!

Happy Home

This post won ‘Indi Happy Hours Voucher’ in A healthy child makes a happy home. campaign organized by IndiBlogger in association with Dabur Chyawanprash.

A healthy child makes a happy home. It’s true. Speaking of it, I could recall an incident that happened two years ago. It was a wedding ceremony that happened after many years in our home. The preparations started a week before the wedding. Everyone was busy and excited, almost. That was when, my nephew fell sick, cold and fever. Almost our entire family felt like they were sick. When we consulted our family doctor, he gave injections and medicines for three days, informing us that it was a viral fever and he would be fine in five days. Doctor also said that his immunity level was low and he should be given supplements to stay healthy because a healthy child makes a happy home.

Though we know that he would be fine before the marriage, still our hearts could not see the smart little boy suffer. He recovered well, but he was not active. The charm in our home was missed. The celebrations became dull. Everybody was speaking (gyan) about some or the other Ayurvedic products or supplements. We were so confused what to do. That was when our grandfather suggested giving Chyawanprash twice a day. We did the same, and it showed remarkable improvements. He became active within a day, not like before, but to an extent to uplift our mood. Suddenly the entire home, our family, friends and relatives, became happy. We clicked pictures of those precious moments, prepared sweets, performed pre-wedding rituals and were all set for the big day.

And, on the big day, he was active; in fact, super active and stole the show during the reception. His dance to “Why this Kolaveri di?” song was the highlight. Smiling Faces, Dancing Hips, Mouth-watering Sweets and Food, Colourful Environment, Beautiful Ladies, Handsome Gents, Healthy He and Two Souls – every possible reason to be happy. And so, we were happy, as the wedding happened in a grand manner. At the end of the wedding ceremony, my grandfather blessed the couple with a speech, in which, he mentioned about my nephew’s health condition and how it changed the happy moments to sad ones and finally to cheerful ones. He mentioned about kids happiness and their health role in Family’s happiness. He spoke about life in those days, Ayurveda and also mentioned about Dabur Chyawanprash role in a child’s life. And he ended the speech saying “Happy Beginnings”.

It was quite surprising to hear about “Dabur Chyawanprash” from a person of his age. As a blogger, I thought writing about the incident that happened in our family would be good. And yes, at times, when germs like bacteria and viruses can infect your body, and can make you fall sick. Your immunity system needs strengthening to be able to cope with various infections and diseases. Dabur Chyawanprash, a time-tested, age-old formulation has a number of herbs like Amla, known to be one of the best antioxidants, Giloy (Guduchi), known to have immuno-modulatory properties, and has more than 40 other natural ingredients. Its magnificent brew of Ayurvedic herbs helps to strengthen your body’s internal defence mechanism – the immune system – thereby protecting you from day to day infections such as cough, cold etc.
