Causeway Goes Techy

Colaba Causeway is famous for its street market - colourful clothes, antique and trendy accessories, contemporary home d├ęcor and piles of books. But frankly how many guys love to go to Colaba Causeway? Not many right? But now all you guys and tech savvy girls like me who don’t really enjoy shopping can also find their corner in the ever crowded pavement of the historic town side of Aamchi Mumbai. Now right next to Regal cinemas you have a new cozy tech hub called Univercell Sync.

On Saturday, I went there with some other bloggers to visit the store and the minute we entered the small store we were all shocked to see the place. Decent place, yes; Mobiles on display, yes; Mobile accessories, yes – but how was this different? Gauging our confusion salesperson of the store decided to come to our rescue. And even before he could begin describing his new den we broke his enthusiasm by unanimously questioning him – HOW WAS THIS DIFFERENT?

So here is what he had to say - UniverCell Sync might look like any normal mobile section of an electronic store but is much spaced out compared to other stores. It is designed to prevent confusion and let customers explore and discover their needs with ease. UniverCell zones, unlike many other stores, are not brand or budget oriented but feature oriented. In Each zone customers can use and assess various gizmos and pick the best for themselves.

So for more clarity let me explain his point of feature based sections. The whole store is divided into 6 main sections along with some interesting spots.

1.    New and Noteworthy – The minute you enter the store you are greeted by the new and the most in gadgets. Not only does this section have the most current tech that has just hit the Indian markets, but also has products that are yet to hit the Indian Markets! Want to check out the new LG D2 & Lenovo S850 visit the store now, coz these are on display there currently.

2.   The Popular Aisle – You craving for a Nexus5 or Samsung S5 or iPhone 5s, this is the zone you would find it all. Reason – What trends, stands on this Aisle! And it lures you to the store as this zone is visible from the pavement.

3.   Click Click – The Imaging section is the next zone of the store, which lets you compare all the best camera phones available in the market. From HTC ONE M8 to Lumia all the phones that make you go click click you would get in this section along with flash cards, SD cards and Power Bank.

   Music – If someone asks me what do I use my phone max for, my answer would be Whatsapp and music. Univercell Sync understands people like me very well I guess cause they have a whole section totally dedicated to music. From phone with best music quality to accessories that enhance the music quality of your devices you would find it all here. I personally spent quite some time exploring the devices of this section. I tried accessing the Panasonic Bluetooth Speaker through my cellphone and the security alarm went off, but beat this I could still hear my song clearly despite the ringing alarm. Univercell sure has quality products!

5.   Tab Experience Zone – A section to relax and discover tabs with on hand experience. This section had tabs like Apple Samsung galaxy and phablets. And the store owner specially said it was made keeping children in their mind. So get your kids, let them play and choose their tech champion.

6.   Budget Phones – Last but not the least was the center table of this tech world – a section dedicated to all the budget smartphone in the market. Small names big products and affordable prices were the specialty of this zone. Smartphone of Karbonn and Micromax donned this area.

Apart from these sections which are definitely the highlight of the store the subtle yet prominent features of the store are the tech graffiti wall, the emotional wall and the frame yourself section. We have all heard wall have ears, but here I say walls have emotions – Wall of emoticons was the cutest area of the whole store. Also for the convenience of the customers, they have section checklists and the store has a special wait, experience and pay zone where you can sit back and use your product efficiently to be satisfied with your buy. On the whole it is like a Diagon Alley for mobile freaks to say the least and this goes without saying 2 hours spent at the store was time well spent for me. So tech freaks of the town, guess I just gave you your new joint and next time your girlfriend or your mom ask you to go to Colaba Causeway with them you know your escape route!

Never suppress a generous thought
But make it a pure one
And begin to believe in the power of your thoughts
Cause thoughts weave the fabric of actions

Thought for Food

Let the Shades and Tints of bonding dance
And a whiff of festivity rule our hearts

A bowl of love and sweetness profound
A treat for my brothers love bound

The syrupy delight and the colourful diet 
All waits but not lone
Hath no lunch made like this
Flavoured with the bond of a brother and sister and not spices alone

Grainy, Orange Saffron Pink
Rice of all shade in my Inn
Garnished with lemon and cardamon green
Paints a picture of love and dreams

But when added to the a container clean
Of clear glass hazed by its steam
The look melts your heart away
And then wakes the glutton in you for the day.

Sweet and sour
In the jar
Hot and super hot
For the rainy hours.

The steam rising from the Manchow Tub
Droplets forming on the Borosil Cup

The picture half ready
With the above three!

Let the chicken tease your hunger a bit more

And salad so colorful fit in the canvas of food
Preens through a round glass bowl

Butter and Paneer the veggie delight

Ah! Let us drink some patriotic sight!

But ain't the White missing the parade

Let some Ice Cream float in this shade!

And there you have it all laid out
Thought for Food without a doubt!

What The Black Revealed

What the Black!!!
Yes I am back with my black fever, yet again! But did you guys wonder why I have been obsessed with Black lately? Why every other post of mine is about some black realm or dark desire? Well the credit goes to Blogadda actually for putting this seed in our brains that has now grown to a fully “Worded Tree”; not speaking tree :P. Anyways, some weeks back came up with an activity called WhatTheBlack and I was totally clueless as to what it was. But since black stands for mystery and being a sucker for secrets and mystery I couldn’t keep myself away from the activity. Luckily I along with a few lucky bloggers got a chance to uncover this black mystery with help of Blogadda.
Wondering how did they help us? Clues!!!! It was a virtual treasure hunt, which unfortunately I didn’t accomplish at but never the less treasure hunts are fun aren’t they! Anyways, the clues were sent to us on 3 super rainy days, Blogadda People take a bow for being so diligent and efficient! Let me tell u the tale in form of clues what say? ;)
Clue One –

A cute little box, what could it be? Jewelry? Chocolates? Secret letter?
But it turned out to be –

BLACK EGG! What the hell? A painted egg? What was I supposed to do with it! Huh!
But wait it is an egg, shall I break it? And that is what I did – Break and LO! What a yummy delight!!!!!

It was a black Easter egg, yummy dark chocolate. Surprise one, treat of the day for sure.

Clue Two –

Early Morning when your newspaper guy comes and throws a paper at your door step what do you expect? A dull white large paper with scribbles everywhere, which actually break your slumber and open the world window for you every day, right? But guess what my newspaper vendor decided to give me – The all new What The Black Times! And trust me reading CWG news on the black sheet was so very different and delighting; but why black? That was our 2nd clue!

Clue Three –

A BLACK MYSTERY BOX of something so very ordinary! A cup and a tissue all gone black. Trust me I was totally lost after this. But All these clues did point at something. What could that be.

This is how my thinking board looked like after the clues.

My thinking caps were of no use and nor could my friends crack the code. So all we could do was wait till the next day, and we felt like killing ourselves the next day cause we had come so close to cracking it, yet were so far!

It is Colgate’s new toothbrush – The what the black product; but not an ordinary toothbrush. This is a brush with a ultra slim black twist. This toothbrush is made charcoal slim soft bristles. Yikes! Did you say that too, because I did when I saw it first, but after reading about it I was so impressed. We all know Activated Carbon is used to purify water, remove toxins, also removes dust and dirt and cleans your skin, then why can it not work on your teeth. Colgate uses the same principle in its new product and this ensures protection from germs that cause plaque and yellowing, ultimately resulting in teeth whitening. So let us just say you morning toothpaste just got its new friend all for your protection. Don’t believe me see this video and see what activated carbon can do.
