My Car connect experience

I am one of those who is always on the lookout for contests on Indiblogger ---of course the main reason is to be able to win prizes ---now ! now !who doesn't want that BUT another very important reason is it gives me a topic to write about  and makes my grey cells  get into the active mode --- I wouldn't be flaunting my thirst for knowledge (in other words showing off) if I said that when I start writing for these contests I learn so many new things about the concerned  products. In fact at times I come across a New Product itself as in this case of  CARCONNECT.IN.

When I logged into this web site I discovered that car connect is such an important site for everyone.

People of all ages and social strata can benefit by joining this site . When I say ages I mean the age group beginning  from 10 because at that age  one is in standard V and has learnt to read ,write and understand ----and wouldn't a boy of ten want to know all about cars . How he would love to boast among his friends about the details  regarding different cars , their price the various features the mileage it gives (being an Indian the knowledge about  "kitna deti hai is so important" hahah ).( but of course you will have to log in or  may be let him share your password for this  particular site won't he be excited and won't you become the best parent )

Carconnect is a site which provides one  with facilities like , Comparison between different cars , Car news  and  about new Car launches etc .

Only if this site was available a few years back it would have made deciding what car to buy so easy Not like how it was for us depending upon word to mouth publicity ---sometimes true sometimes misleading.

Though let me share a secret ,. There was a certain Mr X  in our small   township and he was an expert in Cars   we  would always keep an eye on the car this Mr X owned whenever we had to buy a car we  would go in for the same  car as this guy because his acumen could be relied upon. without any hitch.--it never let us down ---now wasn't that intelligent of us !!! You would say why didn't you people ask this Mr X for his advice instead of  being silent admirers and followers WELL   I am still wondering as to WHY didn't we .? that would have been much easier nahi kya ? but then there is a thing called EGO too nahi kya ?


So if we would have had sites like CARCONNECT in those  days, we would have saved ourselves so much of  trouble.Just log into the site and click on the various facilities offered , click on the information wanted and hey presto get all the details within 48 hours .Features  like  compare cars ; car news ;  new launches of various companies etc  similarly while embarking on long journeys Car connect could  provide us with all the route details.

No sweat ----if we couldn't reap the benefits of  a site such as Car Connect at least our children are lucky to be contemporaries to this amazingly helpful site. And we will share their experiences and enjoy --in fact I am sure my kids would love to put the responsibilities of the Travel  Department right from buying their car ( money of course they will have to shell ou) for them ,to arranging their trips . I would love to oblige them .
With all details just a click away I can always play the dependable mom and make myself indispensable to them .Thus keeping my image of Super mom intact.

By the way did you know I am a  " B Positive"---that includes my blood group  and also my  attitude towards life .
If I couldn't reap the harvests of Carconnect in my hay days I will make hay while the sun will shine on my children's farm .

This site called "car connect"
Is so important and  perfect
It chooses your car for you 
And makes you   special among the  milieu.

kuchh yadein college ki

Contrary to popular belief I personally think that girls from co-ed schools are more timid as compared to those from an all girls school---probably because in school they are subjected to a lot of highhanded and snooty behavior from  boys who at that age  consider girls to be inferior, sissy etc and keep on sneering at them ----in short most school boys are the  GEORGY PORGY types..

In college ,girls from these schools are reserved  but confident and know how to take care of themselves --and the boys too have by now become quite human.and gentlemanly and polite ---they are growing up you see.They now smile at the same girls they sneered at in school---getting interested in the opposite gender!!!!!! any way God Bless them .

The PG institutes have a different level of metamorphosis but that can be discussed in the PG anecdotes ---may be  next post LOL

So --  as the story goes ,I coming from a co-ed school into a co-ed college would always stear clear of any gossips involving affairs etc More so  as I was the outgoing types ,hockey,drama,music ,debates etc etc even and AIR artist (ahem not boasting the story requires this mention) so I preferred to have the label of "proud-and haughty " as both a prefix and a suffix to my name.rather than that of  a  flirt .

Most of my friends had BF's who took special care of them But  I just couldn't make myself be 'that' kind of friends with any boy .I was friendly with all but if anyone tried to come closer I would avoid them and somehow conveyed the message ---this far and no farther.

May be the ideas ingrained in me by my NANAJI were responsible for this (ref: BACHPAN  KI YADEIN)   but I was really scared of mixing with boys.

Though one day something happened which changed my whole attitude towards this  gender of the species of homo sapiens.

 It was  college election time, I had gone to the  office to pay my fees when suddenly  2 rowdy  groups entered the office entangled in a very very serious fight --the kind involving hockey sticks and iron chains with blood flowing  both from wounds as well as bloodshot eyes.They were shouting hoarsely hitting and attacking each other ---I was trapped---the fight was so serious that even the clerks and peons looked  frightened .
I was literally shaking in fear ,a boy was pushed and hit so hard that he came and fell just where I was standing I could have fainted --so scared was I .  When suddenly there was absolute silence all around and one of the ring leaders from the opposite gang  caught hold  of the boy who had fallen  then he asked me to leave the office he even asked one of his gang to escort me .Both the gangs stopped the fight  2or 3  from each   gang escorted me out of the office and then  went back into the office.
As I walked away  I heard a loud crash of  furniture  being thrown  about ---THE FIGHT HAD RESUMED--- .
 the clerks and peons were trying in vain to stop the fight ---the principal came out of his office to intervene and even threatened to call the police I don't know what happened  later on as I had left for the hostel.

 But I had discovered that CHIVALRY was not dead and thanked GOD for that.
