HomeBrook, Connecting Real People

myhome

A home is made of hearts and a house is made of bricks. A house attains fulfillment only when it is a home filled of people of all generations, old and new, I meant the grandmothers and grandfathers and grandchildren too. I envy the days when living together was the order of the day. Not the living together in today’s context, but the concept of kith and kin families making a living under the same roof.  When I was asked to write about the things I need to lead a happy life such that each moment is celebration, all I could dream of is a home, HomeBrook, with huge open space and a garden with fruit yielding trees with an exclusive area for variety of rose beds, a small stream and few pets and our whole family living in it. I could dedicate this fantasy of mine to the frugal living space we get living in apartments without much liberty in having our own garden or pets. Given today’s scenario, this may be farfetched but yet I would prefer a home with more space, a library and a private terrace for a garden.

Speaking Parrot: Winner is Good Concept with Matching Video Quality

The cricket fever is ON and everywhere you see Blue, Yellow, Red, and Flaming Orange T-Shirts either as posters or as T-Shirts. When it is IPL, it is not only Cricket but lots of activities. Brands jump on the bandwagon to release advertisements with Cricket stars or associate with the event to grab the attention of the huge Cricket loving crowd not only in India but abroad too.

This is the time where any event in the evening or night receives minimum attendance and event managers make sure that the event is not happening on a day the home team is playing. Cricket and that too IPL has become a rage and Pepsi, the title sponsor of the event is not to be left behind. Pepsi announced contest #CrashThePepsiIPL that encouraged amateurs to attempt creating an Ad for Pepsi. The finalists are judged by a heavy weight jury and displayed during the matches replacing the original advertisement.

My Experience with The Daily Heckle

squirrel

To the bloggers fraternity, I would like to share my blogging experience with a site called The Daily Heckle. I stumbled on this site during one of my usual search for a blogger platform that will help me launch my writing to International audience.

I had tried registering myself with many sites and blogger networks and it just turned out that the registered sites accept writers from specific countries only. In few other cases where I got an opportunity to write, the topics were too country specific and I could not connect with the same. This is probably the reason why the networks restrict the bloggers to certain countries.

Is Saving 500 Lives a Appreciable Feat?

In the world where information is everywhere and so easily accessible, many things go unseen. The comfort of having access to information at a click of a mouse or tap of the mobile phone has made us selective about what we want to read. Though it does give us our freedom to choose what we read, we do miss those finer points that go beyond our self missing out the ones who be in the news for the positive approach, courage and bravery. Maybe this is the reason why media resorts to sensationalism to draw our attention but unfortunately for the wrong reasons. So in short, welcome to be introduced to the simple and beautiful faces  lost in the information jungle.

Review of Kaidi Kitchen Vegetarian Restaurant

IMG_20150416_215532

Chennai Focus visited Kaidi Kitchen, a vegetarian themed restaurant located in Bishop Wallers Avenue, (Opp. to Savera Hotel), Chennai.

Ambience: it is a jail themed restaurant with the waiters and the supervisors dressed like cellmates and jail wardens respectively. There are tables outside the cell ambience with a prison feel and decor. We sat in the normal tables. The restaurant has a live Mocktail bar but there wasn’t much of activity and felt uninviting and more like a shop. From the entrance to the tables, everything is carefully set so as to give a feeling of dining in a jail.

Food Corner: Cycles Stage a Come Back in Chennai

Ciclo-Cafe-6

Chennai, of late is experiencing a boom in cycle sales. It is surprising as we are seeing a dip in the cost of petrol and in an ideal situation, it must be more of bikes and cars. Looking at the other side of it, seeing the traffic of Chennai, probably a cyclist finds it easy going to reach short destinations in lesser time. For the health and fitness, conscious people, it serves two purpose, travelling and also exercising without sparing time in the daily rigorous schedule.

5 Reasons Why I #CantWait4Zenfone2 and How it Fits My Requirement

ASUS  Zenfone 2 is my dream phone as I am a travel addict who loves to capture nature at its best. I had used many smart phones with their own intelligent features but finding a phone that caters to my need was a Himalayan task.

Reason Number 1brandcover

The smart phones I had were limited in their memory. Since I love to experiment with apps, I faced many issues related to memory and in particular virtual world based apps. Another issue I faced with the smart phones I had was related to speed.  They were becoming slower as time passed and needed more response time to switch between a screen to another. ASUS  Zenfone 2 comes with a 4GB RAM which is more than adequate to have my set of apps that keeps running in the background.
