Happiness is the reflection of goodness

Happiness-quotes

God gave humans wonderful gift to express your feelings and emo’s. They are the luckiest creatures I believe who has the ability to change the world if taken it in positive way. Let me tell you what’s the joy or happiness that brings smile to one’s face. A woman giving birth to a child has pain; she forgets when she sees the face of her baby that instantly bring joy and happiness to her. Those little things seem nothing but give immense pleasure like those meadows flowers. It’s those little things that are vital and make big difference to your life. Find those little things in day to day life that makes you smile. And as said by Humphry Davy “Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smiles and kindness, and small obligations given habitually, are what preserve the heart and secure comfort”

Well what does happiness means to me? I am not worried about anything, I do act of selflessness and give respect, I have learnt from my mother to be selfless and touch the people’s heart in positive way. Helping old man cross the road gives me immense joy, when you travel by Bus, in a city like Mumbai, bus drivers job is so high pressure due to congested roads and traffic but nobody gives them the credit they deserve. I went ahead and appreciated his work and told him “Sir, You are safe driver and you are doing splendid job. He was so happy I could see from his eyes, and he told” we never gets such attention nor we want anything but thanks for such inspirational words you made my day” Those are small things but powerful that brings smile on someone’s face. The seed of compassion grows in your yard when you nourish the affection towards the people. I feel so happy when I see others smiling. During my NGO meet, I gave chocolates to the children’s, they were so happy when I entered there. That brought big smile on their face as somebody close to their heart came to say hello and ask about their wellbeing. I felt so good and had dance together like jumping jack, merry go round happier than ever.  Enjoy each and every moment of life.

Friends, there is nothing above happiness. Try to make one person smile each day. It’s all in your mind if you can’t do kind deed, think of kind thought you will treasure the happiness .Remember happiest people are those who are giving more. When you have zest of creating new things in life you will find happiness. A person is not rich by how much he earns, but by his virtue and kind attitude that makes him rich. Stop worrying about things that’s the only way to happiness.Also share your happy moments or stories that made you smile in my comments section. Waiting to hear from you

Smartphones have become inseparable part of our daily lives. We are trapped in the spider web of technology where we breath and live in a smartphone .I can’t spend a day without my smartphone. And that’s bitter truth!

all-new-moto-g-2nd-gen

My smart Journey would definitely #ChooseToStart with Moto E . The first look of the phone just took my breath away. Too many features, sleek design that’s comes at unbelievable price tag Rs 6999/- Wouldn’t you believe! Yes, that’s true. I am Music lover and love clicking pics. For music freak like me I like internal memory of 8b and expandable upto 32GB is enough to make my eardrum thumping. Soulful and cheerful music is what makes your mood lively.  So I don’t have to worry about memory. I can save more than 1000 songs and can definitely play non-stop music for more than 5 hrs! Thanks to Moto E battery 2390 Mah that lasts 24 hrs

Never lose hope -#StartANewLife

new-life-rasmussedFailures are the stepping stones to success. Most of us takes time to get over failure. Well I wouldn’t say failure is bad. You take it in a  positive way , analyze what’s wrong and I am sure you will overcome your failure. This is my story of #StartANewLife. I was working in Central Govt though from outside it looks like I have got my dream job and getting in Govt job is like considered a big thing especially in India. (You get respect, job security, last but not the least Marriage proposals lol)

Somehow I was not satisfied from my job may be due to work culture as u know how Govt babus work. And being slogged for 12 hrs a days in the past, I certainly found being sluggard is not my cup of tea. I don’t believe in motto “hardly working”, instead do your work smartly.  There I decided that I am gonna hunt and get job in next 6 months. First 1 month being very enthu,and optimistic I would give interviews hoping that it would click but to no avail. Next 3 months started applying to various job portals very seriously. Though I would get shortlisted for companies but would get kick ass in the final round. I said myself “Bro you are a fighter, you cant loose like that” Common you can do it.  Again giving GD, interviews, didn’t yield results. I seriously don’t know how many interviews I gave in that period.

tumblr_m5o2mkZrBE1rsj18oo1_500In the 6th month I lost hope I was depressed, felt I don’t have any quality to get a job..When mom opens the bedroom door, I somehow try to show I m okay. And have my food and go to my bed. I control those salty drops don’t fall from my eyes. I cursed God and nobody there’s to help me.I felt It was the end of my life. But there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. One sunny morning I received a call from one of biggest fortune 500 company. I was in half sleep, didn’t knew was it a dream or reality!. Let me pinch myself first. Yeah it’s real. And the lady on the phone told me you have been shortlisted for the job and come for the interview on Tuesday.  I was so happy and greeted everyone. Felt like I have got new birth. Finally I cleared all the rounds and got selected. I never knew this could happen I mean after so many interview what would you expect?

I would say this was #StartANewLife delightful beginning. I learnt one thing never lose hope in life. Always try no matter what the results are. One day you will succeed. Be it in job, education, exams, business, etc. I was wrong God has kept something good for me. Always believe in God. I felt so better and again the same energy, positive attitude, freshness in mind all got refueled. It was big change in my life and I am so happy and thrilled to share my story. Just like Housing.com Big change to move forward in your life!

Car Review :My name is BOLT.Tata BOLT

Tata Motors unveiled  their new car “BOLT“a hatchback  with grand launch in Mumbai. I visited the BOLT during their promotion campaign at Inorbit, Vashi.

Tata-Bolt-booking-01

The latest entrant in this segment is going to take on the mighty Maruti Swift and Hyundai i10 in fiercely competitive market.

When I first saw BOLT, it reminded me of VISTA but then there’s  X elements in BOLT which distinguished from others.There are four models of Bolt – named – XE (entry level), XM (medium), XMS (medium with extra safety) and XT (top model). The Bolt comes in two variants – Petrol and Diesel.

Let me tell you friends, BOLT is going to beat all the cars in this segment.

The unique features have made BOLT stand from rest of the car. Let’s have a look at BOLT inside view

Tata-Bolt-front-fascia

The five feature that I found the best are : –

 Multi drive- Tata Bolt provides three modes viz. Sport, Economy and City.

Choose any mode and enjoy the ride as the mode you select helps ECU (Engine Control Unit) to adjust automatically to optimize engine performance.
Sports mode can be used on express where you will  get more freedom to drive  without  hassles.
Economy mode will reduce throttle (accelerator) response and will help you ride with less acceleration and smoothly. Economy mode will also help you out with low usage of fuel by up-shifting method.In a city like Mumbai Economy mode will suit the best.

Music System

zest-Interior-1-LTata Bolt features Harman Kardon® infotainment system and if the sources are believed, it took 2 years of rigorous work by the Harman engineers to create perfect infotainment system which complements the Bolt.
Harman Kardon® made sure that TATA’s ConnectNext principle comes true to its essence. It was a brilliant decision by Tata Motors to opt to Harman Kardon® Acoustics and infotainment. Their partnership ensured that the consumer gets the best of both world experiences.

Harman Kardon® infotainment system features :

tata-bolt-3

5-inch touchscreen for better multimedia and tactile(touch) experience.
Supports USB, Bluetooth, Auxiliary audio & Smart phones with special apps.
Better voice recognition.
Social media features and touch phone controlled interface.
Harman Kardon® has integrated some Industry leading smartphone supporting phone enabled navigation, internet radio and podcasts for more better  connected driving experience.
Infotainment system will support smartphone based remote control for rear seat passengers and Smartphone based Navigation screen mirroring.
Harman Kardon® has ensured that Bolt customers will experience top-notch listening experience with acoustics solutions including microphones and speakers.

Turbo Charged Engine

Tata-Bolt-revotron-engine (2)tata-bolt-revetron-engine-petrolBolt is installed with 1.2 litre Revotron motorpower of 90 PS and torque of 140 Nm between 1500-4000 RP and nd max power of 90 PS @ 5000 RPM  with 4 cylinders. There would be another version of Bolt which is a diesel variant with 1.3 litre Quadrajet engine. The modern water-cooled turbo-charger, with its low inertia wheel, provides a faster response for a flat, seamless segment-highest torque density, which is kicked in at very low RPM and delivered over a wide range of revolutions, feeding the vehicle with raw power continuously. This translates into a better drive experience and enhanced maneuverability on city roads as well as highways. A built-in catalytic converter reduces toxic emissions. The toxic pollutants in the exhaust gas are turned into less harmful particles. Thereby, minimizing the harm caused to the environment
Tata-Motors-Revotron-Lab-schematic-front-three-quartersThe engine is turbocharged similar to the Tata Zest which was launched earlier by Tata Motors.
The new petrol engines have been developed indigenously by Tata Motors research and development team in collaboration with strategic partners such as AVL from Austria, Germany’s Bosch and US-based Honeywell. Tested extensively in England and South Korea, these multi-point engines are fuel-efficient.The passenger car market is looking up in the last couple of months. With the extension of tax rebates and improvement in business sentiment, the automotive segment is poised to do well,” said Ashesh Dhar, National Sales Head, South and East, Passenger Vehicles.

Speaking at an event organised here to showcase its new Revotron engines, he said the automaker will play a bigger role in the petrol-powered car segment with the launch of Zest and Bolt. The company also plans to export these engines. It has launched Revotron Labs in 15 cities in busy locations such as malls to showcase the new family of engines.

03tata-bolt-zest5TPMS: Its Tyre  pressure monitoring system. It shows all tyres pressure status on a miniscule screen on the right side of the dashboard .The system works like this it gathers accurate pressure data directly from the tyre valves via wireless sensors. It helps with flat tyre prevention, tyre wear reduction and contributes to high impact fuel savings, by ensuring that tyres operate in optimal conditions.It will help to mitigate the risk of accidents caused by tyres. It also includes locking mechanism to prevent theft.

 

Safety

The advanced ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) with EBD (Electronic brake-force distribution) and CSC (Corner stability Control) ensures your safety in case of emergency braking by sensing the wheel speed, and prevents wheel lock-up while braking, thus maintaining directional control. CSC further improves safety while negotiating tight corners.

The front brakes are Disc brakes and the rear brakes are Drum brakes .

I will take you on ride to give you the BOLT feeling as you will know premium interiors of the car that are stylish and sleek designed.

The dashboard looks very attractive and appealing.The steering wheel is excellent to hold.The cabin is spacious and gives enough leg space.

EPAS(Electric Power Assisted Steering) with speed sensitivity  and active return function. This feature helps you steer with control on unstable or twisting roads.

Smartphone enabled navigation from MAPMYINDIA™- This feature will help customers get a MapmyIndia Navigation app specially coded for integration between the user’s phone and the in-dash screen.Basically it is using a technology that enables the MapmyIndia navigation application layer in the user’s smartphone to sync with the car head unit.

Advance voice command recognition – It allows you to control many multimedia functions through voice commands i.e. to make calls ,change tracks,control AC

SMS notifications and read outs- ( Function enabled only if supported by Bluetooth profile of the connected phone) –No more distraction Incoming SMS and new notifications will be read out

Speed sensitive auto volume control- Tied into the speedometer, these circuits make incremental volume changes over the vehicle’s speed range. It’s a handy feature that saves you the trouble of adjusting the volume manually, as may be necessary as the background wind and road noise increase profoundly with speed

Video Playback and Image viewing option  on the touchscreen via USB and SD Card

Driver Seat adjustment-You can adjust the height of the driver’s seat.Its unique feature that  I found unlike other hatchbacks.

Fully automatic AC control on the touchscreen-Interesting feature that controls the AC directly by the touch.

Geo responders for a smooth ride and sound isolators for quiet cabin

petrol-and-diesel-engine (2)Body hugging rugby shoulder seats  – The wide seats ensure you get ample of back support and you can relax and lay down stress free. You get comfy feel.

The Exterior of BOLT is modernized with

Tata-Bolt-headlight (2)Smoked projector head lamps are  meant to cut through the fog and light up the surface of the road so that drivers can see well enough to stay on the road and within their lane. In addition to fog and mist, fog lights are also useful where there are significant amounts of dust and snow on the road, either drifting in through the air or being churned up from the surface of the road.

Striking power bulge on the bonnet to fit large engine and give sporty look.

TATA signature grill with unique humanity line in piano black finish
