Meet Javed Jaffery The Brand Ambassador Of IIACFF



Javed Jaffery - the great actor, director, live performer, dancer, anchor, mentor, and coach is now going to perform a new role - as the brand ambassador for IIACFF (India International Animation and Cartoon Film Festival).  There is a big celebration going to happen for the art of cartoonists and animators. Who other than Javed would have fitted the bill to be the brand ambassador. The festival will happen in the first week of October - 1st to 5th.



This unique initiative is going to be quite a moral boosting and encouraging event for the cartoonists and animators who mostly stay behind the show. This event will bring them on the forefront and they will get a complete freedom to showcase their artistic talent. If we look at all animation institutes across the country, there would be around 400 but they never get a chance to collaborate and see each other on a single platform in any kind of Animation Film Festival. IIACFF thus decided to bring a transformation in this field by organizing a centralized festival where animation industry, professional cartoonists, aspirants in these fields and all other connected communities to interact with each other on a single platform.



The other connected communities that would be keen to attend the event would be filmmakers, graphic movie artists, visual effects specialists, television artists and animation experts and students in these fields. The students, rookies, professionals and experts will get a chance to showcase their talent. The audience would include not only national attendees but even the global enthusiasts will be seen there. The jury members will include prominent national and international known figures in the field of cartoon and animation. This will bring in a new avenue for the student community to opt for this as a career.

The eventful five days will witness a lot of interactive activities such as panel discussions, quiz, showcasing and a lot more. The showcasing strength and power of this industry thus will encourage aspiring students to take this as a career by highlighting the great avenues.

Samsung Too Hungry? Good For the World

Quest for innovations and technological advancements is a clear-cut measure of any organization. When it comes to one of the top brands of India doing it in a unique manner in the medical arena it means a lot. That is where the smartphone top selling company Samsung India does not halt on their laurels and keep achieving more. That is a good area where even there is a never ending hunger it is good for the world. One thing is for sure that technology has no boundaries and limitations. The limitation of its power is directly proportional to the thought process, innovation and execution. The more is there in the latter, the higher is the former.

There are two ideologies that work when innovations are done in this field. One, to look at the precious time of doctors and finding out the ways to optimize it to the best possible value. Definitely, this can't happen without the help of technology. And two, the life of a patient is most precious beyond anything else. So any measures taken in that direction are to be welcomed in a big way. The new RS80A a premium class ultrasound imaging system launched by Samsung a couple of days ago comes along with a state-of-the-art diagnostic package 'Prestige' designed exclusively for the radiology department.



The first launch worldwide for RS80A with Prestige was in June this year in Korea and has been welcomed with open arms in the medical arena. The demonstration of the product was well applauded in March this year at the European Congress for Radiology in Vienna with the main functions and clinical values of the product. The same was again talk of the show in Korea at the International Medical and Hospital Equipment show in Seol. This is not the end, though. The product is going to be replicated in most of the countries, worldwide, soon. 



Samsung has used a new advanced 3D technology named Natural Vue providing real-time realistic internal body images thus giving a better and clearer provision to radiologists and doctors for diagnosis and treatment. With the help of this 3D/4D reflection mode technology, the images produced do not leave any chance to highlight minute protrusions. These protrusions are not possible in any basic or normally used diagnostic equipment. The Aerial Analysis which helps in earliest possible detection of cardiovascular diseases achieves it with the execution of both morphological and functional analysis of the organ. 



S-Shearwave is another salient feature developed by Samsung that is an alternative to biopsy. The technique developed provides the actual measurement of the stiffness of the affected area by producing shear wave around the region. S-Fusion is another strong functionality built in RS80A with Prestige that has provided a new level of technological advancement and precision in diagnostics. It compares various body parts undergoing diagnosis by simultaneously imaging and analysis so as to fasten the process without compromising accuracy.



The tablets and other devices in use work without sim using advanced RF technology. Be it patient, doctor, paramedical or medical staff; everyone in this model and framework will be well equipment with the devices and training so as to get the best out of the technology. This is just a new journey by Samsung in the medical arena enhancing the technology and innovation. There is a lot more that has been done already by them that is not mentioned above. And, of course, a lot more to come...

It proves Samsung is Samsung too hungry to explore new heights in Technology, Mobility, And Innovation, That is always Good for the World!

Dominick decides to use the strong attraction growing between Rain and himself to control her in every way imaginable. Too bad no one ever taught Dominick that you cant control the heart. Nothing could have prepared him for the effect Rain would have on his.
Will this plan of revenge turn into unconditional love? Or will Dominick and Rains need for control ultimately destroy them and any possible chance for a real future together......

I write an outline, and I keep a schedule of how many works I would like to write per day, when it should go to edits, ordering the cover etc.

How do you plan, schedule and monitor your writing commitments?

I plan before I start the next story, but I also keep a journal with me in case an idea comes into my head and I'm not near the computer. I do author takeovers but try to limit myself on social media, because although marketing is very important and staying connected to readers, I cant let it take away from my actually writing time.

What are your future plans?

I hope some day to be able to write full time. I will continue to pursue all aspects of writing and hopefully become traditionally published one day. I am also planning on writing a skin and nutrition book.

I like the feel of a real book, but may indie author only have ebooks, so I do read both.

What four top most things you take care of while writing a book?

Not repeating verbs
Having the characters converse more, versus telling a story. Making sure the cover is perfect
Keeping my readers updated



How much real life goes into a fiction writing?

I think there is a great deal of real life situations, such as couples that struggle etc, but I also believe couples in romance can be taking to all different levels because the story is fictional.

Is high level of imagination important to have for an Author?

I think you do, so the story is different and stands out, but it still needs to be relatable.

#GenXNano #TheChosenOnes A Lifetime Experience At Sanand Plant

The story begins when you get to know that you are one among #TheChosenOnes to visit Ahmedabad. The purpose is to have a first of its kind visit the award winning Tata Motors Sanand manufacturing plant that is exclusively dedicated to the product of the world class Tata Nano. Not to forget that Tata Nano is not only a unique showcase and case study in Automobile industry but also among Management Institutes worldwide. A few of the lucky GenX Nano buyers from all across the country were part of this trip. So while we were flying from Delhi to join the bandwagon in the Novotel Hotel in Ahmedabad, there were various others who were coming from various cities of India. There were twenty families who got this fantastic opportunity to watch Tata Motors' GenX Nano rollout of this state-of-the-art manufacturing unit. An all-expenses-paid trip airport to airport with a stay at Novotel and on top of it an exclusive visit to the manufacturing facility at Sanand. What a fabulously packaged couple of days.

We were around 15 bloggers chosen from various cities (Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore) for covering the event in our own ways. A warm welcome at Ahmedabad Airport was waiting for us as soon as we landed. The Sardar Vallabhai Patel International Airport is superbly maintained.

None other than @DesiTraveler to welcome us at #Ahmedabad

Novotel is a great property to stay and this was my second experience at Novotel. The earlier one was at Novotel Hyderabad in November 2014 to receive IDG international ICONIC Award. While Novotel Hyderabad is a complete city in itself, the Ahmedabad property is equally enjoyable stay whenever you plan to visit the city with your family.

Novotel Ahmedabad - Promising for a nice stay

Though the visit to the manufacturing plant was on day two but day one was no less filled with excitement, fun and a lot of interesting & engaging activities. Twenty families meant approximately 60-70 persons ranging from the smallest of one-and-a-half year kid to the elders of grandparents age. Wow! for the both extremes of age to get a chance to witness the most modern and automated Sanand Plant.

#TheChosenOnes #GenXNano 
The event started with puzzles related to Tata Nano where we had various groups. There were five rounds - every round doubling up the excitement and interaction. It was a round of brainstorming, selfies and speed.

Five Puzzles consumed lot of water, selfies and interactions
For each of the blogger, there was a mug with his/her caricature. The families had to pick a mug of their choice and identify the blogger present in the hall. After identification, they had to interact with the blogger to know as much as possible about him/her within a couple of minutes. Veda with her parents identified me and we had a quick interaction to know about each other. She is in primary, having a younger brother and loves her parents a lot.

Each blogger is there on a cup - it took some time to identify who's who
There was a fantastic round of music tendering our vocal cords, hands, body, and soul.

Everyone engaged in the instrument round
The day ended with more networking, knowing about each other and dinner. A must mention for a great show so far by Tata Nano team.

A superb end of the day with sumptuous dinner
Day two started and we were all ready for the visit to Tata Nano plant that was inaugurated in June 2010 by none other than our Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It took 350 trucks to bring the material from Tata Motors' earlier plant in West Bengal - around fifty trucks a day. The disassembling and assembling was done in such an expertise manner. The Sanand plant has a manufacturing capacity of around 800 Tata Nano per day, but currently the capacity utilization is around 150 a day.

A warm welcome to #TheChosenOnes families at Tata Sanand Plant

An address by Plant Head, manufacturing head, marketing head along with some presentations were really engrossing and a learning point to know scintillating facts about Sanand, Tata Motors, and the plant spread over around eleven hundred acres (725 acres for Tat Nano's manufacturing facility and 375 acres for their vendor facilities to ensure all critical components and equipment available well within stipulated time with least risks). The major ancillaries are established within the campus. There are a lot of automation with or without robots to streamline the processes and minimize defects. The focus on the quality product at each station during sub-assembly and final assembly is quite visible there.



After the visit, rollout ceremony was there for twenty cars to come one by one for #TheChosenOnes twenty families. It was definitely a proud moment for these families to get their favorite car after witnessing the complete manufacturing process.

A family getting the birth certificate and keys of their favorite Tata Nano GenX
Overall it has been an extremely fabulous and a lifetime experience for visiting the Tata Motors latest world-class manufacturing plant that is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment. The facility comprises of sophisticated robots and world-class, high-speed, and zero-defect production lines. The plant is environment-friendly and is green in many aspects. There is a serious focus on tree plantation, measuring and monitoring of carbon footprints; and water harvesting along with ground water recharging, harnessing solar energy and sustainable water sourcing.

Here is a small video  of our factory visit:

#AllNewJazz Hangout With @HondaCarIndia #HondaAtBIC



The excitement was at full bloom on 4th July 2015 for the 'Hangout with Honda' event where the All New Jazz was showcased. In fact, the excitement factor started many days before when the intimation came to us about it. There were multiple reasons for this. There were many firsts in a row in a single day. It was first ever pre-release of a new product launch by an esteemed automobile giant. Honda was releasing its new product Honda Jazz for blogger community well ahead of showcasing it to dealers. For the first time in India, bloggers community was getting aware of the ins and outs of the technical and functional aspects of a new car before its official release in the market. Five days in advance, to be precise. The second equally powerful element of excitement was to drive the unreleased All New Honda Jazz on the racing tracks of Buddh International Circuit (BIC). It proved to be a great innovative idea on behalf of Honda Motors and profoundly welcomed by the bloggers community that was present there. It was not only the bloggers from NCR but from various cities – Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai etc.



The journey started at 8.30AM for the cabs to arrive at the first station to pick a blogger and move to next station to pick the next participant. Arrival at Raddison hotel in Kasna, Gautam Buddh Nagar, Greater Noida, was around 10.30 AM where a registration desk was waiting for us enquiring our t-shirt number. Honda PR team wanted to ensure every participant wears the t-shirt so that none of us gets lost on the way J. Next couple of hours were for networking that everyone utilized in its own way. Some decided to carve new paths while others felt to remain on the known roads feeling that would be the safest bet. During lunch at Raddison Coffee Shop was good and while gulping tasty food networking was on its full swing. Right since beginning everyone was busy in posting on FB, Twitter, Instagram and other social media. And then we moved to Buddh International Circuit, the ultimate place to put our hands on the All New Jazz.



The amazing destination was a dream come true for most of us. I am sure very few of us would have been here earlier. The videos of ads of Honda Jazz in various countries were fabulous and interesting. A speech from Honda chief from Japan was there and after that there was a presentation on technical aspects of Honda Jazz by the Honda India marketing head followed by a quiz. Tea, Coffee, and Snacks were equally participating in every bit of the event there. A presentation on Do’s and Don’ts while driving at the circuit was there to ensure that discipline while driving stays on top of the mind of every driver. Everyone was asked for the choice between automatic and manual. I opted for the automatic.




In the control room, we were shown how each and every area of the circuit is minutely observed here with the help of strategically placed powerful cameras on the circuit. A helmet is a must for everyone in the car whether you sit on the driving seat or in the rear. Mobile is a big no while driving means no call making, attending, taking pictures or shooting videos. BIC is obviously a state of the art most modern racing track in the world. On the 5.5 kilometers of track, we had two rounds and a lot of great experience of handling turns of up to 180 degrees. After this fabulous experience, it was time to dine and wine. A fantastic day was about to end and everyone was already loaded with heaps of memories and a great unique experience. 



Some of the features to mention is a must without which this post will remain incomplete. There is a rear parking camera to give you a multi-view display and relevant guidelines. The rear micro antenna ensures you miss nothing of this world while driving in your own world of All New Honda Jazz. The chrome read license garnish gives your car a classy look and you, a unique style. Stylish front fog lamps provide driving a power edge even during the poorest of weather conditions.  Style, power, and quality are three musts for Honda cars. You find a unique class and style with Alloy wheels, sporty sleek headlamps, premium rear tail lamps, LED high mount stop lamp, front grille with premium black gloss & chrome finish; and electric adjustable & foldable outside mirror with turn indicators are fine examples. 



the ALL NEW JAZZ has magic seats - where you can adjust your seats in four modes as per your comfort and desire. These modes are Tall, Utility, Refresh and Long. The powerful and efficient diesel model gives you 27.3 kms per liter mileage whereas the petrol version gives 19 kmpl. These versions are called i-DTEC and i-VTEC respectively having 1.5L and 1.2L of engine respectively. The diesel version has 6 speed MT gearbox whereas the petrol version is having 5 speed MT gearbox. The 1.5L powerful engine of the diesel version has tremendous power up to 100 ps while the petrol version 1.2L engine has a power of up to 90 ps.


Life Is No More A Compromise Courtesy @UCBrowserIndia #YuviSurfsUC

Life has never been that easy for me right since I grew a passion for cricket during my childhood. First it was the passion of playing street cricket along with my school and locality friends when every day we used to break the glass fixed in a house or a car, or for that sake hitting some old person coming from the opposite direction of the batsman. Once or twice the ball hit straight on the spectacles of one of our street uncle that not only broke his spectacles but wounded his nose also. Another instance that I remember is of a ball hitting straight on the head of an old lady who fell unconscious and there was howl & growl over the matter in the whole street that day. That day was the end of our adventure of playing cricket in the street.

Gradually in next couple of years, being a diehard fan of this game, I started following each and every cricket series happening around the globe and ensuring that I don’t miss the commentary being broadcasted on radio (those days there was no direct telecast on televisions). The technology was not so advanced those days and hence there used to be highlights of the matches only during the news time on televisions. Over a period of time, by the time, I reached my college days the technology also advanced along with my qualifications. The real-time transmission of selective matches started and with the same intensity my passion for watching matches on television progressed.



With mobility becoming a most happening phenomenon, the age of Smartphone started. It was not initially 1G, 2G, 3G kind of scenario. Data connection of phone used to be a costly affair. I didn’t mind spending this whopping amount on my Smartphone to satisfy my hunger for watching the matches on the move. But it didn’t work. None of the browsers was so sleek (in size) and fast to load and run the show as per my desire.  Firstly it used to be a big task to load a browser on Smartphone. And even if it gets loaded, it used to be a greater task to load the live scorecard running sites, leaving aside the desire of watching the match in live streaming. But every time I had to take an off (with a fake and genuine looking reason) from my office on a day when there is a cricket match telecasted on television, I used to dream of a day when I would see a new wave in technology when there is a strongly developed browser for mobile platform to cater to the needs of cricket enthusiasts like me.

Finally a browser is there that has ensured that wherever I am, in a static or dynamic mode, I am able to join the thrill of live streaming of a cricket match with interrupting my schedule or building scenarios to skip my work, postpone my family or friends get-togethers thereby annoying them. I also don’t need to do jugglery that I did during my childhood days by sacrificing my tuitions for the sake of a match happening somewhere in the world. Now my Smartphone has the world’s fastest and smartest browser that connects me with Cricket where I am, whatever I am doing; without my compromising any plans or schedules.
