5 Things I’m all Set to Do with My Airtel 4G – The Fastest Network Ever

Well, I’m all excited about using 4G Network and here’s what I’m thinking to do first when I switch my 3G network into 4G network.

Book a Tatkal Ticket on IRCTC

Booking a Tatkal ticket on IRCTC has always been a headache for me. To be honest, every time I try my hand at booking a Tatkal ticket on IRCTC, I’m highly disappointed because I have never got one. Yes, in spite of seeing tickets available at 10 am sharp by the time I’m done with the payment, I get a Waiting ticket. So the first thing I’ll definitely try is booking a Tatkal ticket on IRCTC. Even for normal tickets, booking from Airtel 4G will be a sigh of relief.

Full Movie Download

Well, Movie download has always been a major issue for me. I often download it during the night and wait till the morning. In such a scenario, I can only watch the movie the next day. But, now that I’ll have Airtel 4G, I’m eager to download my favorite movie as soon as I start my 4G pack.

To Enter in Contests which are Time Conscious and Limited to First Come First Basis

On a daily basis there are many contests available online where the time starts at “x” time and by the time it is x.01 minutes, it is over. The reason being in this 1 minute all the seats/freebies/vouchers are taken away by your fellow competitors. I would definitely use Airtel 4G to try out submitting by entry in such time restricted contests which are limited to few people only.

Live Streaming & Video Streaming Is Definitely on my mind

Every time I stream videos, I’m so frustrated that I often end up spoiling my and my partner’s mood. Live streaming is such a pain with 2G and sometimes even with a 3G network. This is the reason why I’m so excited for “Live Streaming” with my new Airtel 4G – The fastest Network ever!

Upload Several Things on the Internet and attach heavy files in the mails

Usually uploading takes a lot of time than downloading. This is the reason why we usually leave our computer or phone and go in search of a coffee, the moment we start uploading anything. Then whether it is uploading hundreds of images on our Picasa, Facebook or attaching several files in a mail, it takes a lot of time. This is the reason why I’m looking forward to try uploading all types of images and files once I get my Airtel 4G.

You too can get an Airtel 4G SIM absolutely free. All you have to do is tweet using the hashtag – #GetAirtel4G.

Well, what do you plan to do with Airtel ’s unbelievable speed? Well, if you think your network is better than Airtel 4G, you can also register for the Airtel Challenge.

Friends we were, Friends we will be

“Friendship is like the breeze,

You can’t hold it,

Smell it, Taste it, Or know when it’s coming,

But you can always feel it,

And you’ll always know it’s there,

It may come and then go,

But you can know it’ll always be back ~ Terri Fanning


Family called us Jai-Veeru, friends, Archie-Juggie and some of our class mates even jokingly termed us as “Lesbians” that’s how are bond was! Inseparable and still together, we as friends were often cherished for our camaraderie. As thick as thieves, we remain best of friends till date and even while I write this, we have plans for the next week to have an adventurous Bachelorette party before she utters “Qubool Hai” next month in her pretty bridal wear.

Ah, that reminds me of our more than 20+ years together. While crushes come and go, relationships are redefined, that sexy bitch resides in US and our first crush seems not so happily married/committed with the obese girl of his choice, we tend to still stick together through all the thick and thin in our lives and enjoy our days as “happily forever friends”

 It all began when we were in Std third and met through our common friend, her cousin. While, I really do not exactly know when we started jelling with each other, the real bond was when we gave tough time to the bus bully who troubled the entire bus. Together, we smacked him and our bus mates too supported us. He, being the bus bully was punished while the teacher according to the conductor’s and other children’s version gave us a clean chit. Oh yea, we looked too innocent to be punished for hitting someone. This was the start of a wonderful partnership which still continues. After this amazing start, our school adventures involved things like travelling without ticket in trains, fooling the canteen walla of our school and bunking and sitting in the toilet. While, bunking in school now a days might be a common phenomena, I am talking about 90s where bunking even in college was more of a crime.

And then, school ended, we were in junior college and all of a sudden we became girls. Actually, not her, she was always very feminine. It was me who actually was in transition from a tom boy to a girl. Once, not interested in boys, I soon had my first crush, without knowing she was too in love, with some other guy of course. Our first crush confessions almost came at the same time and we were like, “Oh, my god, you too!” From here started the real adventure – From encouraging each other to propose our crushes, yes we both did that to back each other when those impulsive decisions haunted us in return.

Nevertheless, we stood by each other without judging the other even in times when we took most awful steps in our lives. From helping me to put those mascaras, walk in slitteos and use Dove instead of that Lifebuoy. Having, more faith in me then I had, she started supporting my dreams, no wonder how ridiculous or dumb they were.

Surprisingly, after completing our junior college we landed up in the same college to do our grads. Mature enough, this was the time when we met our first love, lighted our first fag, drank our first beer and were besides each other like a shadow is to a body. The first year was fun as it began with bunking college, watching movies and roaming all around South Mumbai with each outing bringing its own new experience. Back then, we always lived our life with a motto – Live your college days in a way that years later when you grow older, you don’t have any regrets that, Ah, I should have done this or that…

Back then, chatting on Yahoo Messenger was something that every teenager used to do. I still remember, we called a guy from Matunga all over to CST and after seeing him from a proximity of 50 metres, ran off in front of him. Now, I know this was really bad of us but then, we really couldn’t stand him. 

First year went, everything was going fine and then she met her boyfriend and I was diagnosed with Brain Tumor. Out of action for almost a month and half, she not only helped me in completing those zoology journals with n number of diagrams and the microbiology analysis but also gave me the emotional support I needed at that time. I guess, what I’m trying to convey here is that she is pretty great as a friend and it’s probably difficult for me to live my life without her presence.

While, it was a happy ending for me as I had clearly check mated my tumor she was going through a rough phase…Darn, the scoundrel, I mean the guy turned out to be coward. Oh, I still remember how we went behind him all over till Dadar from Peddar Road to teach him a lesson. Like they show in the movies, we stood there from morning till evening waiting for him to ask , why did he do this but the coward never turned up. Last seen, two years back he regretted his act. Oh, we are too awesome, you see

Years have passed by and we still share things, feelings, relationship woes and even family problems, we have been sailing in the oasis of our friendship together happily. She is more of a family now and my parents and siblings consider her as a family member and vice versa. Thanks Mussarat, for being such a darling friend that you are. Hope, we have tons of many more adventures in the future so that we continue to challenge life as if wehave always done….

Flashback: Hell Yeah, that was the day!


Escaping the mundane and experiencing the remarkable was our one stop mantra back in the college days. After all, we were just out of our school-like junior college all set for a quest to find the beauty of our existence. There was a period when academics played a vital role in our lives but at this point of time, it was perhaps the last thing on our mind. All we wanted was to experiment things, live life to its fullest and enjoy every moment as if it was the last day of our life. And till date, it gives us the nostalgic feeling. Those were the days, the graduation days! Out of many such glorious days in those three years, the one day which has been embedded in my mind like it just happened yesterday, is the last day of our first year final examination.

Summer of ‘04


“Deeps, did you cover the Mechanism of organic reaction in the Organic chemistry section?” VJ (that’s short for Vijaylaxmi) asked me hurriedly while having the last minute revision.

“No, ya.. I don’t even have the Xerox copy, how am I supposed to know what it is. Besides, I just bought the Inorganic Chemistry book last week if you remember and not Organic.” I murmured while busy searching for something in my other friend’s bag.

“Yaar Musarrat where is the camera?” Don’t you think we should click one right out here in the Science building corridor?”

Musarrat, totally unaware of my question – “Deepti, what’s the plan after this hysterical stuff getting over finally?” I wanted to check out some really good stuff (junky jewelries) in Colaba Causeway…

“Oh yea and I wanted that funky Osho Chappals, I am waiting for it from almost 2 months now.” VJ joined in Musarrat.

We soon began clicking pics and talking about after exam adventure. Our reverie and fun was shortly interrupted by the final bell signaling it’s time to get in the exam hall. I received the question paper and the three hours went in cursing the education system, myself, writing some hypothetical as well as valid equations, finally waiting for my two friends to finish the paper. All in the rush of after-exam adventure, we three came out of the exam hall a good half an hour before.

Selling in our chemistry books in half rates at the Book store in the college campus, we began our photo session. Oh yes, how badly we wanted that few more bucks to enjoy our day. Besides, who anyways wanted that Chemistry books, after all we were Microbiology students.

We then rolled out of the college campus all set out to eat at our favorite joint, the Noorani’s right in front of Mumbai’s first mall, the Crossroads, opposite Haji Ali and also a lane down from our college. If you are passing by that area, don’t ever forget to relish some tasty food there if you love Non-Veg food.

The awesome Biryani, the delicious butter chicken and the legendary two Mangolas between three of us – Oh, what a royal lunch it was after a month of hard work! (Studying for two hours during exams was surely a toil back in those days)

The next stop was 15 minute cab ride to Gate way of India and we were right there for a ferry ride in the Arabian Sea. Enjoying the freedom as if we have completed our graduation, we ventured into the ferry to experience the thrill. What a pleasant half an hour it was!

By the time, it was evening and we were right below the Mumbai skyline, at our final destination, the Colaba Causeway right at the street at Café Leopold and Café Mondegar. Before this day, we were never together after sunset in this busy happening street. So, this day was special. The shopping, the girl fun (now that something cannot be revealed here), the freedom which we were experiencing was out of the world. That evening we walked from Colaba Causeway to CST (VT station) passing through the fountain, Fort and Fashion street in our own euphoria. Finally, reaching for CST station at almost 9 pm. We got our mobile phones in the second year. So, there was no mobile phones ringing reminding us to reach home quickly.


Lastly, not to forget our home was 1 hour from CST station by the local train. And we did not even spare the train from the fun. And why not, as it was the last day of our final exam and we had all the rights to have all our pleasurable moments…

Time after that has flung and I have had many such euphoric moments yet this is the day which I crave to relive again and again.

No career tensions, no work dilemma, no daily trauma – Just a free life out in the cosmic world with my like-minded buddies. Happiness indeed!
