Quikr NXT - Maintain Your Privacy when Selling Online

With it has now become very easy to sell your products online. It allows you to post free advertisements of your product. You can even sell your used products online and get a good price for it. also helps you to calculate, the MSP (Maximum Selling Price) of your product and this MSP can be used as a selling price for your product.

The only problem which I used to face in this process of buying and selling online was:

  • Privacy: Privacy has always been a problem for the seller as you have to provide your contact information along with the advertisement. Nobody wants his/her contact information to be shared publically.
  • Information:  It’s very difficult to get every bit of information about the product in the advertisement along with the pictures. Some of the information which a buyer wants may not be there in the advertisement.
Recently, when I read about Quikr NXT, where the buyer and seller can immediately connect with each other through chat across Quikr’s mobile application, mobile site and even its desktop site my problem of maintaining my privacy and getting complete information about a product was solved.

Thanks to Quikr NXT!!!

I would definitely prefer chat over a phone call because:

1. Easy to Share Pictures: Pictures are easy to share on chat you just have to send them. Consider a case, in which the seller has uploaded a picture which has the front view of the product. Now, the buyer wants to have a look at the back view of the product.  With Quikr NXT the seller can easily click and send the picture of the back view of the product in just a few seconds over the chat, rather than going by the old method of first uploading the picture and then being viewed by the buyer, which is very time consuming. 

2. Privacy is maintained:  I don’t like sharing my personal information to unknown people. Previously, I had to give my number while posting an advertisement as a preferred mode of communication. Now, with Quikr NXT I can easily maintain my privacy. All I have to do is click the ‘Maintain my Privacy’ in my ‘Contact Information’ while posting my advertisement.

3. Chat History: It is very difficult for a seller to recall which buyer quoted what when negotiating over a phone call. The same goes for the buyer, if there are multiple sellers selling the same item it becomes very difficult to recall the price quoted by each seller. This problem is easily solved by the Chat history feature. The user can easily go to the chat history, which is usually maintained in the cache and read the last quoted price.

Sarvana Bhavan - Connaught Place

One of the best South Indian Food I have ever had is at Sarvana Bhawan.

Sarvana Bhavan

The South Indian here is really good. I like the 12 piece small Idli plate here. I order it every time I visit Sarvana Bhawan. The Dosa and Upma are also good here.

A very short review.

How It Works

The Four Course Experience at Mia Bella had some nice dishes and platter on it. Mia Bella opened last year and is a nice place to eat out. The menu includes Middle-Eastern cuisine, along with European and African delicacies. One of the highlights of Mia Bella’s menu "is the introduction of "Braai", which essentially is a spit-roast or what we better know of as barbeque.

It was a good dinning experience overall but a little bit of more training to the staff will create wonders. Overall, a good experience.

Clear and Pure with Garnier Pure Active Neem Face Wash

Pimples are not only a problem for women but for men also. The time has gone when only women used to stand in front of the mirror and groom themselves. Now, men also take time and groom themselves before going anywhere.

I remember an instance of mine, where I didn’t went to a party because of a pimple on my face. It was a New Year party organized by my best friend. Pimples on face are like nightmares. With pimples on my face I don’t feel confident at a party or a get together. Imagine, you are proposing a girl with pimples on your face. I don’t need to tell you the answer it would be a ‘No’.

Pimples = Big Time Problem (Time can also be taken as the time, pimples take to go away)

They irritate you and you are unable to concentrate on your work till the time they are gone. Sometimes, you are scratching them and most of the time you are looking into the mirror.  

Now, we have a problem i.e., pimples. A problem always has a solution. I can recall my friends giving me a number of solutions to treat pimples such as, getting a face massage or a face pack done on my face. I tried all the solution but pimples used to go away with time. Nothing made them go fast and the result was not attending a party or not feeling confident at a party.

Pimples can make you feel awkward at office too.  An incidence which happened recently was:
I was having pimple on my face from 3 days on the 4th day a colleague of mine came to me and said “Why don’t you use something on your face for pimples”. I felt awkward and could not reply to her. Then she told me about Garnier Pure Active Neem Face Wash.

I came back home and went to a nearby cosmetic shop and bought the face wash. At, first I was not confident about the product. I applied it on my face for 2 days and on the 3rd day, the pimple was almost gone. Garnier Pure Active Neem Face Wash can make pimples go away in just a few days. After, seeing the result I thanked my colleague for her advice.

Garnier Pure Active Neem Face Wash

Now, I am ready with the solution for pimples. Are You?

'Clear and Pure with Garnier Pure Active Neem Face Wash'.
  • Fight Germs
  • Fights Pollution
  • Removes Oil

Note: The above experience is my personal experience. The experience of using the product may differ, depending on the skin type.

The New ASUS EeeBook X205TA

I always have to carry my Laptop along with me for my work. My laptop is so heavy that it’s very difficult to carry it in Metro and Buses. I have always been thinking of buying a new one and sell my old laptop. With time my laptop became slow and started giving me hardware related problems. Sometimes, I used to lose my data because of unexpected errors.  I have been searching for a nice tablet or laptop for a long time but could not find one.  If the configuration was good, the power backup was less. If the power backup was good, the configuration was not good. Most of them were heavy in weight.

I wanted a laptop which is:
  1. Light Weight: I have to carry my laptop in metro and buses. A heavy laptop makes me uncomfortable to carry it. A light weight laptop is always easy to carry when travelling.
  2. Good Configuration: A good configuration is very important. I work on various applications simultaneously. I need a good configuration so that I can run various applications simultaneously without making my laptop slow. A good processor and a good amount of RAM are very important for me.
  3. Good Power Backup: A good power backup is very important otherwise I will have to charge it again and again. A battery backup which would last for a long time is the right choice for me.
  4. Good Graphics: I sometimes, do animation and 3d modeling on my laptop so I need a nice graphics controller. A low graphics card will hang up my applications. I also play games with high end graphics.
