Ariel :- WashBucket Challenge

I am a tech freak but I haven’t used washing machine even once in my life, so Ariel & BlogAdda came up with an opportunity where they made me use the machine to wash clothes and share the experience with everyone. After getting shortlisted, I received a packet of Ariel washing powder from Blogadda as a part of the campaign. I informed my mother to assist me in washing clothes next day and also capture some snaps, my mom was shocked on hearing such statement from me and I explained her about the campaign. She was happy and loved the concept.

Next day in the morning, I started using washing machine under my mom’s guidance and learned how to operate the machine, as our washing machine is semi- automatic so I had to learn some mechanisms before using it. After going through the process I took my first step of filling the water and then adding clothes into it and finally using the “Ariel” and carrying out the washing process step by step.

Finally a journey of 20 minutes came to end and the clothes were washed. Through this challenge I found the joy of washing clothes and also learned the art of washing them, I am no expert but still I managed to pull this challenge on me and completed successfully.

This challenge made me think of all the women across globe who wash their family’s clothes on regular basis. Being a man, I have never thanked my mom or any other women for the effort they made to ensure our clothes are washed, but this is the moment and I would take this opportunity to say THANK YOU !! to all the women across globe. It feels great to share the load and be helpful to women in carrying out household chores, also a big Thanks to Ariel & BlogAdda for coming up with such a contest.
Cheers !!!

Recently Axis conducted a bloggers meet at their corporate office at Worli in association with BlogAdda. I quickly registered for the event and was awaiting to get shortlisted..As usual BlogAdda always fulfill your wish by shortlisting me to attend the event.

I always reach on time for events and I continued my legacy. I was quite happy as I was among the shortlisted bloggers who were given a chance to attend this meet. Unlike other, this was a professional meet and not a casual one. On entering the building I thought that Bankers are going to give us long boring speech about their product and me & a fellow blogger mate Anirudh reached the floor where snacks were waiting for us. I loved the guy “Hari” from BlogAdda as he welcomed us and with a great gesture offered us snacks, he also welcomed all the bloggers personally !

The event started and the room was packed with bloggers and bankers around me where our heads were focused on the computer screen in front of us displaying Axis Logo. As the conversation went ahead, I was suprised to see that my predictions were wrong and these bankers are quite interesting unless those stereotypical image of bankers.

The Mobile App from Axis was displayed to us and the meet was going to get forward in understanding the app and it’s features.

Mr. Pramod from Axis started off with the app by logging into the app within a minute which was amazing being a first time user. Once logged in, there were number of features and screens which were innovative.

Axis Bank Screen 3

I will divide the App into 3 parts to define it :-

  • User- Friendly
  • Secured
  • Personalized

 

User-Friendly :-

The app is user friendly as the UI is designed in such a way that everyone can use it effortlessly and people without technical expertise can also use this app. I loved the UI which offered a complete satisfactory user experience along with that the language used in the app is simple and easy to understand. Axis have made sure that they change bankers image in the mind of the people by using simple terms to define concepts.

Secured:-

I am a Cyber Forensics Professional and security is my top concern when it comes to anything online. I loved the encryption type which they used along with their cycle of security features which was truly amazing and a customer need not worry about getting hacked or loosing money while transacting online.

Axis Bank Screen 4

Personalized:-

The app and the UI is so innovative loaded with tons of features where a customer can personalized almost everything as per his requirements. The UI is great, language and the features are loaded in this app that it amazed everyone of us.

CloseUp:- Cupid Games

We all love our opposite gender and get attracted towards them which is natural and non-harmful,from school kids to senior citizens all of them have their crushes. I am really a shy type of person while approaching or interacting with girls but when the time is up you need to act and put your fears behind. If I had to propose my crush on Valentine’s Day then I would have planned & researched lot of things to make it perfect.

1) Casual Texts

I will send her some casual texts asking her about her plans and after knowing her response ( Whatever it maybe), I would ask her to meet and hang out nearby and eat something.

2) Bike Ride

Once she is out with me I would ensure my bike is properly cleaned and the tank is full (Avoiding any Embarrassment) and I would definitely take her to a long ride and no girl would refuse to enjoy a ride on a bike.  A long drive with many speed breakers and traffic would ensure that she would remain close to me ( Indirectly) and even I will be able to execute my plans and change my plans (If needed). Bike ride is one of the best way where a girl wouldn’t mind to join me and will also help us to spent some quality time.

3) Beach

I love water and beaches in Mumbai are a boon for all our Mumbaikars. I will take her to Aksa beach which remains deserted most of the time where we can park the bike and sit in a corner in peace. Once spending couple of minutes on beach I will hold her hand and ask her to walk with me without our footwear. I love walking on sand and the feel you get to walk on a sea shore with bare legs is Amazing !! I would not let her hand go till the time we are seated again in our place. Juice and snacks will follow , I will dare to have coconut water with her from a single coconut and that too using a single straw. This will definitely indicate her about my feelings and would boost a bit of confidence in me to carry on with my plan.

4) Sunset

I will make her sit on sand with me while keeping my hand over her shoulders and describing the beauty of viewing sun settling down and would ask her to just relax and enjoy the beautiful moment.

5) Cafe

There is beautiful cafe situated around Aksa Beach where I take her to our reserved table with a view of the beach from the window and the cold breeze hitting our face. I would order a bottle of Heinlein each ( As we both love beer ). Once the bottle is half complete I will hold her hands and would express my felling towards her. In short – I will propose her ! & I predict her answer would be “YES

This is my plan to propose my crush on this Valentine’s Day and hopefully she agrees with me.
