TATA HEXA Experience

Tata Hexa Experience: Is the new Hexa any better?

Tata Hexa is being readied for the launch, and I am among a lucky few who got to see it, feel it and experience it first. It has been more than a year since Hexa made it to Geneva Motor show. And it is now time, for its grand reveal.

As usual with any IndiBlogger meet, I am among the last who get on the bandwagon. But this time, I had to be there. Tata Hexa is the reason. With its launch just around the corner, Tata Hexa has been one of the eagerly awaited vehicle – the wait wearing thin on some as well who could not wait for it anymore.

Tata Hexa Experience

Like they did for the Tiago, they invited a bunch of bloggers to review the car. Tiago was their first new grounds up car in more than a decade. Hexa is not Aria, and is a huge make over. Targeted at Innova buyers primarily, Tata Hexa is also looking to snatch those SUV buyers away from the likes of XUV500. The interiors are posh, and in a first in the segment, is being launched with an automatic drive.

Royal Enfield Himalayan

Yeti. The Himalayan beast in my life

Yeti is what I named him. Many preferred to call it a goat, a Himalayan Goat. But for me, it never looked like one. It always looked like the beast. Untamed, but well mannered and imposing. It has been an agonizing three and half months of a wait, to be honest. Waiting time for my beast was killing me. My friends who knew about this decision kept on asking me on the status, adding salt to the burn. On 16th of Aug., 2016 he arrived. I got to see first glimpse of Royal Enfield Himalayan, reserved in my name at the show room. Continue Reading

A silent sinful protest!

It is not unknown that you come across some people whom you don’t like, and then some you just down right hate. Oh yeah, everyone has that list of people and I am sure you do too. So it recently happened that this ex-colleague of mine is enjoying life to the fullest extent and I am sinfully feeling bad

It has been days since I last posted, with a post on my flying with experience Vistara in drafts. It is becoming difficult, but I am positive about me posting regularly. Call me a liar.

Yeah it is sinful to think it that way!

May be not. If you take my opinion, that is. If only you could really imagine and feel what I felt when I saw some recent updates on their social profile (haha, yes s/he is on my FB friends list). This person conspired my exit from one of my previous organization, but before the sinful plans could be executed, I excused myself and quit. That surely was a win for him/her, I just avoided it from being messy and held my self-respect.

Historically, this person had always been a treasured child, which earned him/her with multiple promotions in short span of time, with more than year worth of time offs and work from home (a criteria considered negatively while promoting others) in between. These two were the very reasons I was told do not entertain a promotion conversation for one of my own team member (who thoroughly deserved it).

Yeah, it is life and I cannot but help ignore it, alas, I am human after all.

Hot Mumbai overheats during summer again!

Burn up the energy this summer, but don’t buy a cooler.

It is summer time again and Mumbai started to get heated up. Sun has not been among the kind to have treated us this way, unfortunately. I remember writing an article way back in about hot summer that year. And it is a post that has got more hits during summers every year.

Last Sunday, the heat reached at it’s peak this summer, with night being hot as well. It did came as a surprise since the nights have been colder comparatively. As 90% of the working class these days works in Air conditioned offices, it is but obvious that you will be relaxed during the day. With the addition of recently announced A/C train on the Central line, it would make the travel cozy as well.

Responsible Blogging

I blog. I live. It is me. #ResponsibleBlogging

To talk about being responsible and put things in context, let me redirect you to one of my recent post on bomb blasts in Pakistan. It was horrible, but there was a particular behavior the caught my eye. Earlier this year and late last year, there were two other blasts that shook the world – in France and Belgium. It is a sad example, I know but one that teaches how selective we are. My Facebook timeline was flooded (Disclaimer: I did not do it on both occasions) with people updating their profile picture over-laced with the French and the Belgian flag.

But the same thing did not happen for the blasts that happened in Pakistan. Does that have to do with the frequency of blasts in Pakistan or the hatred that we carry for them? I also posted the article link on Facebook, earned absolute Zero likes and comment – may be the text I wrote there was probably in-your-face!
