Asus Zenfone 2 – Redefine your smart phone experience

I have been a fan follower of Zen thoughts, Zen philosophy and Zen moments. To me, Zen was just about “the way of living” untill I come across Asus Zenfone. Actually, Zen is about living, experiencing and relishing the world at your finger tips. I call these days as an era of smart phones.

We have so much to choose when it comes to smart phones. We have to be smart too. India was first caught with Nokia. When Facebook got popular, the number of smartphone users grew eventually. India’s growth in ecommerce and the increase in social network users welcomed in more smartphone choices both luxury and affordable.

If you have 5k INR, you can have a smart phone that satisfies basic needs. If you can afford, you have the option for high end phones. Is there anything in between?? A high end phone at an affordable price? Between luxury and basic? The answer is “YES”.

We have a good news. The affordable high end phone is getting released in India.

Where does Asus Zenfone 2 wins? – The 5 reasons


There are few more aspects to be checked when we decide to buy a phone. The design, display screen, battery life, the weight, the length , the breadth and the width etc. It has a cool design with hair line finishing and it is sleek with . It has a 5.5 inch high definition display touch screen and has an expandable storage up to 64 GB.


Asus Zenphone 2 is the world’s first smartphone with 4 GB RAM and 2.3 GHz Quad core processor which is perfect for gaming and multi tasking. Is n’t it amazing? It has a high speed performance. Most votes goes here.


Mobile camera has become an essential these days. Asus Zenfone 2 has the Camera, 13MP rear and 5MP front – more Quality photos, audio and videos. It has a low light mode with which you can zoom in and picture anything in the low light without the flash lights.


Latest it is!!
Latest Android v5.0 Lollipop operating sysytem, dual sim feature, 2.3 GHz Quad core processor and the long hours battery back up are the key factors where Asus Zenfone 2 win the choices. Latest of all takes the votes.

What is affordable? Getting high for what we pay. Samsung, Iphone, Nexus, Microsoft play a giant role in the luxury mobile category whereas there are few other players like Motorola, Samsung, Microsoft are introducing low cost smart phone with basic needs like whatsapping, facebooking, play candy crush saga, listening music and a camera for sure both front and rear.

For affordability, we might compromise one or few but what if we get everything at a lesser price that is less than half of other high end smart phones cost. It is a boon, right!! Asus Zenfone 2 has it all and it is getting released in India on 23rd April, 2015. Don’t miss the buy.

My first gift to my little girl

Giving birth is a magical thing. It is not just a thing that happen in a day it is all about a long wait with dreams spread all over inside every moment. Holding the little wonder in the hands for the very first time is something beyond miracles. No mother can resist her tears – the big relief after a toughest moment of fear.

All the days of connection with my daughter inside my womb, I have had uncountable dreams everyday. I didn’t know whether it was a girl or a boy. I was curious. Actually, a little more curious.

when it was the time for unveiling the secret, I couldn’t wait even a minute more. I was that excited. I delivered. It was a girl – a true Angel she was. She looked graceful. She seemed like an angel; she is still an angel and she will be throughout. I still can’t frame the moment when I delivered my girl. I still couldn’t recall the very moment and my thoughts on the moment when I was inside the surgery room.

I was blank and all blank except one thing – my baby. It was an emergency delivery, I had faith that my baby will do fine. I had no doubts on that. She was born and she added happiness everyday. Every morning is a fresh start with her. I see grace and love in her eyes. Especially, those deep looks on me, simply I can’t hold my hands off her. I’ll grab her immediately and will kiss her.

Since her birth, I have watched her every moment. I know all about her, her sleeps, her needs, her hungers, her signs, her smiles, her cries, her laughs and her looks. I say everything and I mean everything.

I really wished to buy something for her. A dress may be!

After her birth, I had become a full-time mother – I haven’t left her away for a moment. I bath her. I change her diapers. I dress her up and I do everything on my own for her. I haven’t left those things to others including my mom.

Whenever I dress her, I have had this feeling that I couldn’t get her any gift on my own. I wanted to buy her dresses. Means, I really wished to go for shopping, where I can touch, feel and buy what looks good on her and what is good for her.
I had undergone a cesarean and I was slowly recovering. I was not allowed outside for shopping and all of my little girl’s dresses where either a gift or the ones bought by our family members and not even a single of mine was there for her.
I couldn’t go out leaving her at home and I didn’t want to hurt her taking out for shopping. I waited and the longing was there everyday. Of course, I had the online shopping option. It is super privilege. But still, I felt I should go out and get something in my hands for my little charm.

After 3 months, I managed to leave my little girl at home for an hour. My in-laws resisted me from going for shopping. They even tried to stop me saying that they would buy whatever I need. I told them that I wish buy some gift for my daughter on my own.

I drove the bike after a year long gap for my daughter. I was happy actually very happy. I went to the shop – the shop exclusively had baby products. I did shopping. I touched those dresses. I imagined how would it look on my little girl. I was able to get her what I wished for. The colors and the texture of the material, I checked almost everything not because I am buying stuffs but because it was for my little girl, that too my first gift for her. It may not be the best but it is special.

Coming home, I showed everything to my little charm. I know she doesn’t know anything about it. She was just 3 months old. She just smiled. She smiled not for I bought her gifts but for a simple reason that I showed her some colors and I was talking with her. That time, she loved only colors. Her smile made me fly at heights with so much of joy.

The next day, I dressed up with all that I bought. She looked beautiful; even more beautiful. I clicked pictures. In 3 words, I was happy.

Buying the first gift for my daughter was the most beautiful moment in my life ever. I call it happiness – The pursuit of happiness.

Nashta at Guptaji’s Family

I hail from south India and I must admit that I am not a big fan of corn flakes as like the other major south Indian crowd. My breakfast menu has always been following the strict menu of Idli, Dosa, Pongal, Poori, Upma, Puttu ( Since my in-laws have a kerala touch), adai, aapam etc.

To be frank, I have had corn flakes for breakfast only once with hot milk. Since my taste buds are used to the usual south Indian flavours I wasn’t craving for one more try. So I just left it. After all, Who cares if I didn’t eat corn flakes?

Somewhere in the brain, some nerves has the message that corn flakes is made for lazy singles who doesn’t want to cook and eat. Ad films in TV has conveyed me one more thing that if you want to loose wait eat corn flakes for breakfast daily. Awww !!!! that’s more like fasting.

In simple words, i thought corn flakes is exclusively made for the lazy singles and diet freaks until I saw this Facebook page –

Being a food lover, I couldn’t resist myself scrolling up and down, down and up through the recipes listed there in facebook page. It was absolutely thrilling and totally surprising to see so much of eating and recipes for everyone made with love and some kellogg’s corn flakes.

Watch this :

Oh, is this the one I hated so far. How did I ever missed this so far? This was the thought that was running in my mind when I had look at over 100s of Guptaji’s family recipes using Kellogg’s.

There are more Crunchy, chocolaty, salty, sweet, milky, spicy recipes made with corn flakes listed which surely will kindle the hunger in you. From now, these food enter the favourite food list.

But here comes the Guptaji family recipes with Kellogg’s corn flakes where healthy and tasty are blended together. This family has all the secrets to attract every foodie out there with the kellogg’s waale nashta.

I would definitely love to visit Guptaji’s family to taste the “Nakhare Wala Nashta (chapatti cornfalke chivda)” – one of my favourite recipes of Guptaji’s family.
