Spectacular evening with Rekha Bhardwaj Live in Concert in Mumbai

When I came to know about  an evening with Legendary Music Icon Rekha Bhardwaj performing live in concert in Mumbai. I was pumped up and the first thing I did was registered for this event.  It was on Sunday evening at the European-themed Dublin Square at Phoenix Market city Kurla.

It was raining heavily in the evening, but rains failed to dampen the spirit .I arrived at the venue bit late as I was waiting for my friends outside, but the spirit of Mumbaikars  were up and when I entered I saw house pack audience calmly enjoying the music.

Finally, we could see Rekha Bhardwaj took centre stage, Queen on folk and sufi music was all set to mesmerize Mumbaikars. She started melodious ‘GendaPhool’ to the beautiful heart touching song  ‘Tere Ishq Mein’  She enthralled the audience with her sensational hits when she sang “Kabira “ & “Darling” Let me tell you she has got distinctive voice, style that is unconventional that sets her apart from the league. The husky voice singer  rendered some of her soulful numbers. Due to public demand, “ Darling” song was played once again,and the powerful performance brought the audience on their feet.

It was fun filled and musical night with Rekha Bhardwaj.Thanks to Blogadda, for making it happen.It was amazing performance and scintillating live experience.

It was an interactive session, where everyone got insights on what exactly causes body odour, how can you prevent and control body odour.  The 2nd activity was fun games where we were divided into a team of 5 and each group, two bloggers were blindfolded(I was one of them). We had to smell different things and had to guess what it is. I guessed 4 out of 5 items correctly.  So now it was a time to unfold the mystery. The Nivea Men team was on stage. My friend told me some celebrity gonna be coming. So I was hooked up to see who’s that person.

He spoke about his relationship with Nivea Men and answered questions on Body odour.  After interaction with fellow bloggers. It was time to reveal the product.

Amazing #BOLTDrives to Lonavala

IMG-20150419-WA0027The 2nd activity of Tata Bolt Drive to Lonavala was a surreal experience. It was an amazing trip from Mumbai to Lonavala. For those who missed the bus, no worries, I will take you through an exhilarating experience. Our journey started off from Café Infinito, the first point where all the bloggers assembled to get Bolted. To make things interactive, there were fun activities arranged for us, we were divided into teams of 3. Every team has to introduce their teammates in an innovate way. Creative thinkers started thinking out of the box.I am elated that I had teammates, Rohan, and Vishal. Vishal had a different way to start off –“Why not engage the audience and introduce us with Dumb Charades “  and I must say everyone liked it. After a round of introductions by all the teams, Tata Motors team gave us the short presentation about the features, the technology of the Bolt car.

We headed to MMRDA grounds where short suspension test drive was made to give us comfy feel even on bumpy roads. Now everyone was hooked on to their smartphone tweeting, liking, updating status, uploading pictures. In just a few mins, #BoltDrives started trending on Twitter. It was all over my timeline, my friends were asking what this #BoltDrives going on? I told just follow the hashtag you will know what you missed it.

IMG-20150421-WA0019Driving in Mumbai traffic is like if you drive here, you can drive anywhere! Our car was in safe hands.Rohan drove the car to Lonavala.In the journey, Captain Bolt (sounds like RJ Jeeturaj but no he is not) would call us every 20 mins and ask our experience and it was fun talking to him. When we were on the expressway, Bolt runs like a super-fast bullet on track.

Being a music lover, it was amazing to hear Harman Kardon® infotainment system.For detail features of the BOLT Car please see my blog post  – BOLT Car .We arrived at the pit stop for delicious lunch at Dhaba. Thereafter we reached Tiger hill.You get awesome scenic view of Tiger hill. Beautiful views of Mountains mesmerized us. All bloggers captured selfies,groupfie, videos. In the return journey, Vishal drove the car, he is an amazing driver, well balanced, and he likes speed, seems to be big fan of “Fast & Furious “. But he had good control over the steering.

It was time to Bid bye, everyone gathered for closing ceremony at CCD on their way back. I really enjoyed #BoltDrives  to Lonavala. It was scintillating experience.Also met new bloggers on this journey.

Accepted :Sharing the Load- #WashBucketChallenge

Well few days ago, I was scrolling my email and saw there’s challenge on Blogadda contest -Share the Load – #WashBucketChallenge. Initially i wasn’t keen on taking up. But then i thought why not accept it and gets some exercise done.I don’t take up challenge but this time it was something my heart told me yes and i felt that would create awareness on Gender equality in our society.

airel

After 3 days i received my Ariel matic free sample from Blogadda. I had never operated Washing machine. Its just my mom, sis n maid would do all these years!. It was quite challenging task. I learnt the operation from my sis and got it started.Few clothes in the basket,tub full of water now added the Ariel Matic powder and the twist-spin started and my clothes were moving over and round each other and spins again. I cant believe now my twisted clothes are coming out ready to put in the dryer.

#WashBucketChallenge

Now that my clothes are out from the dryer, refreshing and as if new baby coming out of the womb.Its really easy task i felt and i feel anybody can do it and share the load. Well let me tell you friends, the whole activity has made me  think over and over again why do we say its women’s job. Are household chores only women’s job? The mindset of the society needs to be changed and sharing the load will not only promote gender equality but also encourage love for each other. Of course Overloading will lead to bad results,why not give a helping hand and share the load daily.Its daunting job but over period of time you will not be burden with it. Its gonna be routine task in household. I salute Airel for coming up with the Unique challenge to address the Inequality in our society and encouraging men to share the load.When you share the responsibility it will lead to happy household.You get sound sleep and twice the love and respect for each other.
I am nominating my friends – Aziz , Pavan, Raj, Bhavin, Apoorve to take up the Challenge.
Do share your personal experiences in my comments section. Would love to hear abt it.
