How Apple should’ve eliminated the Audio Jack!


It created a lot of chaos and trolls when Apple removed the Audio Jack. It is hard to get rid of a port which has been a standard for over a century. And yes, it took courage. But this is what big companies are supposed to do : pioneer new trends in the industry!

This is what Apple was always known for. For being unapologetic about their decisions against all critics. Be it the elimination of the physical keyboard on phones, optical disk drives, flash support etc. Time and time they were proven right, and the Apple standard became the industry standard. And this was because they did it RIGHT, Steve Jobs did it right! But I am afraid this time Apple didn’t quite play the right symphony on it’s magic pipe.

If you’re an Indian, Apple Music is the Streaming service to go for

I am a music lover. I mean, Who isn’t? I am one of those who likes to have a song for every moment in my life. I like to give every type of music a moment in my life. And that’s why I want every song ever recorded on my fingerprints. Born & brought up in West of India, parents from East of india, and now living in South, I am living through a phase of great cultural mix. Add to these the Internet, and I have a full course of  culture.  And Apple Music serves it in the best manner. How?

Inavailability of Major Streaming Services

In India, we don’t have Spotify or Pandora or Google Play Music. And our in-house streaming services like Gaana or Saavn, don’t really complete the job of delivering the foreign songs & playlists like Spotify does. I used Spotify via VPN for 2 weeks and I fell in love with it. Also, none of them has a desktop application which means I can’t save songs offline on my laptop and play to my stereo. And the music player in general,SUCKs.

Apple Music is available with none of those flaws & at just INR 120/month (about USD 2.00). It has the foreign collection. But it really sucks at delivering Indian Music. It misses songs from biggest music label T-Series among others. So why Apple Music? Continue reading “If you’re an Indian, Apple Music is the Streaming service to go for”

Save me with a Kiss

Come close. Closer. Align your eyes with mine and look at the world like I do. I am trusting you with my vision. I am getting nervous, vulnerable!

So what do you see. A girl? She is beautiful, ain’t she? But she doesn’t think so, nor do my friends. But then why couldn’t I take my eyes off her? I was puzzled, but not anymore. I know why! I see what others don’t. I see the perfect frame. The frame that captures her inner beauty. It’s those rare expressions specific to her, each telling a story, that caught my eye. It has made a deep impression in my mind. So deep that whenever I see her, that frame flashes in front of me. I wait. Wait for that expression, wait for my heart to skip a beat.

The Girl Across The Room

After taking a year off, sitting at home devoid of any social life, it was finally the first day of college. I entered the class hoping to make some new friends. But I joined college late and soon found myself sitting silent all by myself enduring the ever apathetic lecturer. Equally apathetic were the faces of the students. There were some pretty ones. But you see pretty eventually just gets boring. So I keep turning my head, few degrees at a time, and I see right across the room, a girl sitting alone trying to figure out this alien place for it was her first day too. I felt like occupying the seat next to her for she seemed intriguing. A book I wanna read. But why her?

Be a Hopeless Romantic!

A Great Story always features love. Love for a Person, for a Work, for Country, for.. Basically Anything!

A Great Story always features love. Love for a Person, for a Work, for Country, for.. Basically Anything!

So one day you decide you will follow your heart, no matter what. And in your quest, you are filled with Love and Passion. You try to be honest to yourself hence taking decisions you never thought you would.

So you walk on a path nobody taught you should. But, life gives you no assurances. There’s no absolute sign if you are truly following your heart or not. If you are truly filled with passion.

You will feel alone. You may be surrounded by sadness. You may feel lost. And, you start questioning if you were truly following your heart all this while?

That’s a hard place to be at. Tough. I don’t know what to do at that moment. But, I still hope “one day, you take the decision to follow your heart, No matter what! Coz every great story features Love.”

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Put a Bullet Through my Head

Being a Teenager or anyone who is trying to discover oneself or the world outside, comes accross various observations, ideas, dilemma. This article is an excerpt of what goes in my Brain!

Thoughts rising in my mind, about to collide. Looking to define the world outside & inside me. Looking to make a change. Being ambitious, more and more. I’m believing in my thoughts. My thoughts are believing in me. I think I can do it.

But then the collision occurs. The moment of impact launches me into reality. Are my thoughts right? Can I do it? Can my thoughts do it? Can they change the world?

I’m getting nervous. Losing confidence in me being able to live my ambition! They were right, Ambition is the enemy of Success; realising it over and over again. So I think all I should want is some satisfaction at the end.

But living my perfect version of life is what gonna make me satisfied. Having known that I seized the moment. So I think my ambition isn’t about the goal, it’s about the journey. That perfect way.

So what is it?

I can never Hate a person, coz I cannot Hate myself.

I hope after reading my blogpost, you will think about every person you’ve ever hated. Every person you’ve judged as bad and Think about FORGIVING them, Giving them a Chance. Hatred makes you emotionally unstable. Sometimes obsessed with revenge. I hope you get yourself out of this pit of emotional instabilities.

I can never truly hate a person. It may look like that I hate a person, but I actually don’t. I may enjoy the grumbling, especially when there’s a group of people fueling it, but who doesn’t.

The point being even though the evidences are clear and I have every reason to hate a person, I can’t.
