Those were the days, memories just keep coming and bring a smile on my face, Shekhar talking within himself and remembering his nostalgic days!!

In his childhood days Shekhar was a very different sort of a person, he was a silent guy, not very restless like other kids around him, just keeping to himself and being helpful to other. He developed a sense of writing from his early days when he was facing many situations which made him mature mentally and it made him think and had a sense to pen down his thought in a diary.

He made diary his friend and shared his thought on situations and where life was taking him, it gave a sense of fulfillment to Shekhar whenever he used to share his deep side to the diary! It was a solace zone growing up!

It was in his teenage days, that he realized that he had good potential in becoming a writer, when he use to get teacher tap on the back for his writing essays, composition and sometimes even speeches for functions. Developing his writing skill as he moved on in life and started his college days!

Shekhar collage days were full of events! being a good writer many of his friends use to ask him to write love letters and even the drama teacher always made him the script writer of plays, as he was always helpful in all aspects, he gained popularity in the collage, Shekhar was always focused about what he wanted to do and did exactly that while was a point of example to many of his friends and he was the their inspiration!!

Moving ahead in life and seeing potential outside where he was at his college days, after finishing graduation he shifted gears and applied for MBA in Mass communication in many collage around his reach and stream before ending up in Mumbai…. The island of future scoop and opportunities!

MBA in Mass communication in those days was a talking point, as it was still emerging as a stream and making its base in the competitive world of opportunities, where money mattered more than passion! This was never a point of concern for Shekhar as he was focused and knew what he is best at !! Contained by the scope he always aspired to work on his passion and led a fulfilling life of what he could master!!

Got stuck – A tale


And it was suppose to be the day which was going to change many things in Anil’s Life, yes you heard it many things, but what happens when you miss that important day because you get stuck! Sharing with you a tale which you have to read it to believe it!

Anil was a marketing executive at a firm who was struggling to meet ends and wanted to change his job, he was having a good 8 years experience and he thought this was the right time to hit iron, so he gave some interviews here and there, finally from one of the firm he  got a phone call early on a Monday morning stating that he had cleared the stages of the group discussions  and on Wednesday he was suppose to attend the final stage of the interview, which was the One on One with HR and the boss !

Anil was all excited and started preparing himself for the big opportunity and turning point of his life! Trying to quick fix his accent and presentation overall, moreover, he called up his close buddy Rakesh to give him some tips about how to be more confident and smarter while facing the HR and the boss, about Rakesh, well he was in a good post at a Bank and was earning a fortune! To get some good luck Anil even posted about the interview in social network status and tried to earn some tips and wishes online, this really helped Anil crack the blues!

So, It was a glorious Wednesday morning and Anil was in mix emotions – happy, tensed, excited, worried all at the same time! The phone rang and it was a reminder that he was not suppose to get late for the meeting or else the opportunity will not come again!  This made Anil panic, still holding his nerves Anil started preparing himself …

Anil went on to take a shower and get ready, while Anil was busy singing and dancing in the shower, his cousin unknowing closed the bathroom door from outside and left for some work considering that Anil was out already.

After the singing and dancing was over and when Anil tried to open the door it was not opening, he cried for help but no one was there at the house to help him! He was cursing his cousin for this blunder!

The Phone started ringing again and Anil’s heart was pumping knowing that it was the dreaded call from the reception reminding him that it was time for the interview! Anil couldn’t believe the scenario and never would he have thought that such a thing could happen at such a critical moment!

Anil tried his best to do all sorts of possible things to open the door, but it was stuck and not giving any hope to Anil, after some time the phone again rang.. It kept on ringing and ringing till someone picked up! Anil was shouting again; help! Help! Someone open this door, I am stuck, finally his cousin opened that door after having the conversation on the phone! Anil was furious at his cousin and gave him a good firing, after all the episode he asked his cousin what the receptionist say over the phone! His cousin in melodrama style said: bro, it’s all over!  Anil was so angry and was about to kill his cousin if he didn’t utter what was the conversation all about!

Finally, his cousin spoke and said: “ Bro shit I am sorry that I unknowingly closed the bathroom door and it lead to such a catastrophe ! As per the conversation with the receptionist, she told that the meeting … the very meeting which was today …. Pause ……… has been postponed until Friday! Anil in disbelieve slapped his cousin and said :”stop it ! Tell me what did she say … and his cousin was like bro, I am serious and he hugged him! The rest is history … :)

The only thing that touches you is the satisfaction you get when you are happy and fulfilled while discovering the journey of lifeAziz Ampanwala.

 Last week was a special day for me, not for many but one reason, I got a chance to visit one of the big retail mobile chains “Univercell” thanks to folks at indiblogger who had organized it and gave a chance to experience and explore the store in-depth.

 Indiblogger is one of the most active blogging community in India:

 IMG-20140823-WA0151IMG-20140823-WA0178

I stared navigating the store, it was significant that the mobiles and accessories were placed categorically for convenience of customers to help them navigate easily and allow them to choose from the specification and details they desire, the categories are as follows:

2) Point and Shoot

4) Tablets, Phablets

 Now let me showcase you some of the USP’s of Univercell :

IMG-20140823-WA0064

1) Upto 100% cash back scheme – If you are a credit card holder, just swipe the card for down payment and the rest is taken care of by the Univercell team, they will calculate and let you know how much cash back percent you earn as per their algorithm, the branch manager told me that few customer have won complete 100% in 3 months, that awesome isn’t it.

2) Easy EMI’s with no processing fees and 0% interest: This service is provided by their financial partner Bajaj Finance who offer this at a hassle free documentation process and minimal approval basis of personal documents.

3) Flexi EMI’s: Yes, you can also avail EMI’s upto 24 months if you have a credit card, you shall be charged a minimal processing fees and interest.

 My observation on the segments and store overall:

1) In all three segments, beside the phone / accessories there were description table in which all the details of the phone were mention which is helpful when you are comparing the phone with one another or simply going through the specs, also mentioned are some pointer to whom the device is most suitable, which I found really helpful.

2) In all three segments there were no price mentioned beside the phones/accessories, sounds interesting and it is, when I asked the branch manager about the funda, he politely answered saying we deliberately did it so that customer would ask the price to us and we could interact and help serve the customer better with our different schemes and discounts to help achieve the desired satisfaction, which again is a well thought initiative.

3) While I was browsing the various segments of the store, every segment had a dedicated Customer help executive who had a lot of idea about the particular segment, brands and best deal, I was impressed with their helpful nature and a sense to customer satisfaction when it came to selecting a product or simply asking for options. Even the branch manager of the store pointed out that it’s all about making people more comfortable and helping them sort options.

4) Range of accessories at the store was phenomenal, from screen guards to covers, panels, car mobile accessories, you name it and its there, and even so they had dedicated accessories for each handset on display which is a rare in other retail store or at other private outlet.

5) Feel of store was very friendly and the executives were very dedicated to provide proper support to queries and helping  find what you actually require, satisfaction is their mission which is fulfilled at many level to what I have experienced , while I was navigating the store and having a quick chat with the Brand Strategist, Branch manager and support staff.

 Let me share some of the unique feature about Univercell which other Mobile Retail chains Lack:

Overall, I was glad to visit the store at Univercell, came to know about some fabulous services and support for phones, besides that some very well staged phone segments and accessories at display, a must recommend to anyone buying a new phone and accessory just for their support and effort to provide the customer according to their needs and demands and gaining satisfaction.

No Boundaries


Why are there differences

When we all are one

Why are there boundaries

When the world is one

 

Religions made us worship

It didn’t divide us in two

It was to purify our souls

To believe in truth

 

Culture made us colorful

It taught us how to live

It didn’t made any headways

To disrespect how others live

 

God played his part somewhere

He didn’t create equal souls

Diverse in nature he created

What we call  human as whole

 

To understand the purpose of living

And living is to create happiness

Why is there so much animosity?

When happiness is not fulfilled

 

The creation of power spoiled us

It made us create boundaries,

Breaking the wall of harmony

Building the walls of differences

 

To know that history repeats itself

I am not a free soul of my wishes

I am living with restrictions without will

To respect the laws of boundaries
