Quicker NXT.








Our forefathers were fond of collecting furniture and vessels and many more things can go with the list. There was a time when Great Grandmothers would secure their jewelleries and lahengas so that they can handover it to next generation. Electronic items were never to be sold as an old TV would serve as either toy for children or an extra luggage in store room. But now times have changed and fashion as well as man’s life style is totally changed and with growing crowd and little spaces to live in, it is impossible for people to maintain a good store room as our forefathers did. There were times when storeroom seemed like a treasure room to kids, where they could find many antique items to serve as their toys. 

With growing crowd and little spaces this thought never occurs and man’s desperation for life style and high living has turned him into pompous and show-off has become style statement. Now man does not purchase things to satisfy his needs, he keeps changing them as per the latest fashion or trends. This mentality invented online portals which offered buyers and sellers a platform to meet and buy and sell as per their convenience. Anyone can buy anything they wish to buy or sell on these websites. There are very few websites offering this service but my favourite one is Quicker.com. I have just got married and my hubby and I have just shifted in Delhi NCR. Quicker.com was like a godsend to us as we easily find furniture and cooler on Quicker that too, in our budget.
Quicker has introduced some awesome features now, which are just awesome. As a user of an old features of Quicker, I would easily explain to you guys that why this updated version is awesome one. It has introduced these features and these features are actually my reason why I would prefer chat over phone call as it is explained with every feature.

  1. Keep your number private: - This feature is really good one as I experienced many fake callers when I placed an ad for my used cooler. 7 out of 10 callers were just harassing as the number was easily available to them. Feature of chat introduced by Quicker keeps number private.                                                                                                                                                
  2. Chat at Your Convenience: - When my number was easily visible to people on Quicker, they would call anytime they wish. Though I had mentioned calling hours, very few cared about it and called at unexpected hours. Just imagine that you are at someone’s funeral or on a romantic outing or being scolded by Boss and this callers make it worst. Now, due to this feature I can chat whenever I wish. I’m the queen of my privacy now.                                                               
  3. Keep Track of all Chats: - The most relieving feature is this one for a person like me who has weak memory power. For my cooler I received many calls and it was just impossible for me to remember them all and the negotiations going on with each caller. I had to literally make a note on diary that to whom what price I have said. Now I can easily go in chat section and can see to whom what price I have said.                                                                                                                                                      
  4. Share Photos: - via chat we can send as many photos we wish to send and its really amazing as being buyer I can understand the anxiety of another buyer that he might want many photographs of the product he is going to buy.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          With these most amazing features I'm planning to sell some more things from my storeroom. What about you guys? ;)

Pimple is not at all Simple



Each and every girl has an enemy and that enemy is PIMPLE. It is said that Pimple on faces announces the arrival of youth in girls and boys. I never felt so as I was God gifted child. I had oily skin yet I never had pimples. I found myself damn lucky as I never had to apply stale spit, multani mitti or any other dadima ke nuskhe to remove those kale dhabbe from my skin. I never had to read the articles which helped to remove pimples or never dreaded from looking at mirror. I could eat as many Gol-gappas I wish to have and as much spicy food as I wish. My friends felt jealous of me as I never did anything to save my skin from pimples. My oily skin also could not attract these monsters. 

However this happiness was struck by calamity on one horrible day. It was my sister’s marriage and for that I got facial and bleach done on my face. God knows what exactly happens but after few days my skin was full of pimples. I was out of my mind and would again and again look at my face which was now full of pimples. I could not believe my eyes. My mummy was also dumbstruck as my skin was considered to be the most beautiful skin and these pimples had ruined everything. I just don’t know what caused these monsters but they were destroying my skin and my confidence. From that day journey started. Journey of avoiding spicy food, my life- Gol-gappas, applying Multani mitti, neem pack and visits to doctors. I could understand now the pain and agony of the girls whose beauty was ruined by pimples. I tried variety of lotions and face washes but nothing worked and these monsters kept showing themselves on my skin. 

My mummy was more worried as my sister got married and now it was my turn to join her in list of wedded girls. She was cursing God again and again for ruining my beautiful skin at that phase of life when I needed it the most. One day I was just changing channels and I saw an advertisement. Advertisement of Garnier Pure Active Neem face wash. It was a new one. Till that date I had tried many lotions and face washes so I decided to give it a try and so I purchased the face wash as soon as it reached to my nearby market and used it. I really thank God that I saw that ad on that day as Garnier Pure Active Neem worked like a magic wand for me and in a month my skin was again beautiful and devoid of pimples. 

I really believe that face is the mirror of person’s image so one needs to keep it clear of all the blemishes and pimples. Thanks Garnier Pure Active Neem to help me in achieving this beautiful face of mine.




What defines me? #UseYourAnd



Being an avid reader, I was brought to the realities of world very soon. It made me think rationally and prudently. Education of Literature worked like catalyst and interest in feminism made me ponder more about place of woman in society and somehow those thoughts questioned my own place in society or as a daughter in a family. Blogadda has again take up an initiative where I have got chance to answer all the questions my rational mind keeps asking. #UseYourAnd activity by BlogAdda in association with Gillette Venus quivered my heart and asked me a question,” What you are?”

“I am not an angel,' I asserted; 'and I will not be one till I die: I will be myself. Mr. Rochester, you must neither expect nor exact anything celestial of me - for you will not get it, any more than I shall get it of you: which I do not at all anticipate.”
― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre




I love above mentioned quote as I feel it actually defines me. :)
Human being spends whole life in satisfying needs and expectations but being an ardent reader and keen observer, I have witnessed that most of times woman has to pass through these ordeals more than man. Somehow I feel myself damn lucky as I never had to pass through these kind of ordeals. 

I was the second child of my parents. Both, my elder sister and younger brother were engineers. I, being an arts student, always got glares from society for being less intelligent child. Somehow, I took these glares as a challenge and decided to develop myself as a different and intelligent child. I developed myself in such a way that those glaring eyes were now praising me.

My passion for reading brought me into blogging and it became my passion. Along with Blogging, book reviews entered my life. I would really love to thanks BlogAdda   for it as I reviewed any book first time for BlogAdda. My passion for book review and blogging got me fame. It gave me a name. Both eminent and imminent writers approached me to review their books. 
 
I worked as a lecturer before my marriage means before one and half year. I was described as stubborn and impulsive person by my colleagues but my students loved me a lot. This evoked jealousy and continued to rude politics but I remained myself. The reward I got was expulsion, but the love and support of my students became my strength and I continued in life. God graced me when those who played politics with me, repented later on for doing that. 


Passing through these ups and downs, I have come to a stage where I have my identity. Sonal Agrawal, a book reviewer and blogger, who is well known for her authentic reviews. It might not get me much income but the name and praise it gets me is worthless.
