Exploring my Fun Side with the Intel Powered Star Wars™ Special Edition Notebook

Ever Since I can remember I was fascinated by the Star Wars Movies. I had an inkling that I was in someway connected to the star wars.
Maybe I was a lost Jedi


or door ka cousin of Yoda who got separated from him at the Kumbh Ka Mela in some Previous life of mine

Or like one day you discover that some distant long lost uncle of yours whom you never met and who lived in Africa has left all his riches for you 
I had the wish that Darth Vader would one day remember that I am his long lost nephew and the only relative of his and bestow upon me all his powers and best of all his light sabre.

 If you are reading this post of mine then you must be thinking why am I discussing my family tree over here?
Actually I have just come across the Intel Powered Star Wars™ Special Edition Notebook

 This power packed Intel Powered Star Wars™ Special Edition Notebook is not just a power house of performance but it is an object of desire for any Star Wars movies fan.
For me it brings back memories of all the Star War movies that I have seen. It brings excitement and the  same rush of Adrenalin that I experience every time  I watch a Star Wars movie.
The only difference is that the nostalgia and power it wields over me is unimaginable.
Just looking at the exterior I feel I am part of the Star Wars Saga.
 The red back lit keyboard with its glow gives me the feel of holding my light Sabre. It wields both power and grants me control to the Star Wars Kingdom

The feel of being powerful is to be experienced to be believed. The red glowing keys are not there to give you just a feel of being powerful but they actually put the power of a Star Wars Space ship at your disposal. At the click of a button you get access to the Command Centre which gives you access to the Empire. And what an access it is.
You get access to over 11 images that span the journey of a 40 years Star Wars Movies legacy.

It gives me access to the control center from where I can unlock the treasure of the Star Wars galaxies.
It gives me access to a treasure of content hidden from the eyes of the universe for over forty years.

  behind the scene of Star Wars

If images are worth a thousand words than authentic star war sounds add more masala to the entertainment value.

If these collect-able memorabilia were not enough to floor any star wars fan then it is loaded with Bonus goodies

Just as Star Wars Movies appeal to the senses at various level so is this Intel Powered Star Wars™ Special Edition Notebook . Here is a laptop that makes me feel that I am part of the Star Wars team and truly a citizen of Coruscant  This amazing laptop  comes loaded with the ability to write and communicate in Aurebesh which is the Galactic Base Standard language .

So much for the sources of inspiration
With so much inspiration I am bound to excel in what ever I do
So be it making animations
or Editing my movies
The Intel Powered Star Wars™ Special Edition Notebook awakens my dark and the creative side
So much so that I am inspired to remake a lot of Bollywood movies by casting the characters from the Star Wars Movies

I cannot help but think how it would feel to have a remake of Mr India and the role of Mogambo would be done by Darth Vader and belt out his iconic lines

Star Wars is a cult film with a huge following yet there would be so many people untouched by the magic of the Star Wars movies, with this intention I would like to remake the Munnabhai Series with 
Darth Vader playing the role of Munna and who else but R2D2 to play the role of circuit. Any guesses about what the movie would be called?

Offcourse it would be called
Lage Raho Darth Vader Bhai!

So all the Star Wars Movie fans #AwakenYourForce and let us hold our Intel Powered Star Wars™ Special Edition Notebook close to our hearts and inspired by this marvel of technology spread our love for the Star Wars.

Your Rights and Justice

For every hundred women who are subjected to sexual violence only one reports the crime against her. This act of hiding the truth under a veil of secrecy starts the journey of pain,humiliation,suffering and un imaginable misery that may have many pitfalls on the way like unwanted pregnancies, STD's untreated wounds and poor and low self esteem. So it is of utmost importance to report the matter and seek justice.Seeking justice is the first step towards redeeming oneself from the pain and suffering. It is also the declaration that you are not to be blamed for the act and it was not a fault of yours.
One should seek justice so that
1) Coming out as the survivor of an act of Sexual Violence one needs advice,solace and a patient hearing.The survivor needs people who around her who can comfort and soothe the frayed nerves and this is possible only by coming out into the open and reporting the crime.
Yes it is tough but the fact that not reporting is tougher as the incident keeps replaying  in our heads and letting it revisit the survivor as nightmares. To make this process easier the law pertaining to offenses of sexual violence have been amended. So when such a crime is reported the law states that a woman police needs to be present at the time of recording the statement so that the victim feels comfortable reporting the incident. It has also been made possible to let the survivor file an FIR at any police station instead of having to go to the police station that is nearest to the scene of the crime.
If even this is a problem then a family member , a witness or a friend can also file a complaint with the police. The only condition is that this should happen with the consent of the survivor and the survivor must go and file the FIR at some time in the future.
Even if the survivor or the crime wishes to send a complaint as email or phone it is considered to be valid complaint and action is initiated.
If the person is a physically or mentally challenged person who cannot go to the police then the police would come to that person and register the FIR.
2) Every time a case of sexual violence is reported more and more convictions will happen so the people who believe that they can get away with such an act will fear the wrath of law and eventually there would be lesser and lesser incidents of sexual violence against the women in our society.
3) Thirdly it increases the level of protection for the survivor against becoming a repeat victim of the crime as the law would be on the lookout for and eventually punishing the offender so he is less likely to be stalking the victim and committing a repeat of his heinous act.
All in all now with the new law against Sexual Violence Acts like stalking, Voyeurism and sexual harassment are also dealt with the same severity and must be reported immediately.

 “I’m writing this blog post to support Amnesty International’s #KnowYourRights campaign at BlogAdda. You can also contribute to the cause by donating or spreading the word.”

Only if you know your rights

It is said that knowledge is power. This statement could not be more true in the case of dealing with a situation of Sexual Violence. This is a very important issue being faced by the girls and the women of our society. There is still so much ignorance, fear and anxiety about how to deal with such a case that only one in 100 women reports a crime and the rest …
Well they suffer ,laden with shame,fear, hurt both mental and physical. Their lot can change with the power of knowledge.
A lot of people believe that it is best not to report such matters to the police as it would bring a bad name to their families. However the truth is that it is very important to report such incidents. As such matters are reported more and more rapist and sexual violence offenders would be booked under IPC and justice would prevail
1) Approaching The Police: The big hurdle. As per IPC whenever a women reports a crime against her that falls under the category of sexual violence then a female police officer is present at the time of registering of the report. This is to help the victim report the crime with confidence.
The victim is at liberty to file an FIR at any police station and need not have to visit the police station nearest to the sight of the crime.
Even a friend,Witness or family member can register the complaint as long as its with the consent of the victim. The victim of the crime can later go to the police station and file the FIR later on.
The Indian penal court has given liberty to the victim to make a complaint via phone or email.

By reporting a crime of sexual violence she is entitled to get a lawyer from the court of law in case she wishes to choose so.
2) By reporting a crime a women is not just fulfilling her duty as a citizen but also taking a resolve that she needs justice. This justice can only be provided to her in case she asks  for it.
3) The pain and trauma that a victim of sexual violence goes through can only be healed if she gets up and fights for getting justice.
Good medical treatment and counseling which are very important for her to begin approaching the normal lifestyle or at least try to achieve it. Standing up to get justice is one of the important things on the path of recovery and moving on.
Incidentally the law about sexual violence has changed from 2013 . It covers acts including sexual harassment, voyeurism and stalking. This gives each girl and women the safety to report crimes that build up to wards acts of sexual violence and rape if not reported at the earliest . As many acts of rape and sexual violence start as an act of stalking, voyeurism or sexual harassment. The women should come forward and take a stand to protect themselves.

The Bangalore Diaries

Thinking of Bangalore the first thing that comes to my mind are the lush green farms on its outskirts . The retired folks who decided to settle there after a long hardworking life.
Connect The beautiful Bangalore airport that connects the beautiful city to the rest of the world. For me it is the pearl of the south or let me say India.This beautiful city is not only connected by air though its vast and extensive airport but also through road and rail. For commuting within the city it has a wonderful network of roads  and a well developed transport system.
The Design of Bangalore is such that it is a mix of the old and the new. On one side are the old houses build by people decades ago and on the other side are the multistory housing complexes that house so many people who are drawn to this city for various employment opportunities. Be it in the field of information technology or other multinational employers who have their offices in Bangalore. The design of city is such that it preserves the old palaces and buildings of the era gone bye along with giving opportunities of growth and expansion to new ideas and structures. That is the reason that Bangalore has become the Information Capital of India. The appeal and planning of this well designed struch ensures that infrastructure  and opportunities are a plenty both for the employes as well as employees. The result is that there are more then 1500 Information Technology companies in Bangalore or Bangaluru as some people like to call it.Its not just IT but a host of other companies which include more 650 multinational companies over 66 global fortune 500 companies call Banguluru their home apart from numerous home grown industries.
All this infrastructure would not have been possible had it not been for the DRIVE of the people of Bangaluru. Talking of Drive I loved to go on long drives on the roads of Bangaluru specially at night. There was a time when people used to head towards south Banguluru SB to get some mouth watering lip smacking food but not now a days I find good food is available in practically every part of the city. I would not be surprised if people begin to call Banguluru as the food capital of the country. Going for a drive to nearby places like Ooty and Mysore is such a great way to rewind and refresh but on second thoughts Banguluru is the place where the people work hard and party harder making every day feel like a paid working holiday . The office culture is good and so is the weather making it the best city in terms of Design, Drive and   Connect

5 commandments for getting and retaining soft and healthy baby skin

From the moment I saw my little sister for the first time I was awe struck by the little ones beauty. Curly hair,big black eyes and dazzling creamy and gentle skin. I was almost scared to touch her for I did not want to harm her and cause her any discomfort. Even to a five year old boy that I was she appeared a tiny and fragile doll who was so delicate.
The moment a baby arrives in our home and our lives everything changes. Our entire life begins to revolve around the baby.
Babies are very delicate and their skin is the only shield that stands between them and the outside world. A baby's skin is very gentle and delicate. It needs extra care as it is the one thing that protects the baby from the external elements. For a baby its skin is the armor that guards it from external infections, germs,organisms and the elements. A baby's skin being gentle needs extra care and nurturing.

The first thing that my mother did was to always ensure that my little sister lay on a soft sheet so that her soft skin would not  get bruised due to the constant kicking and moving all babies indulge in.Another advantage is it is easy to remove and change.This also means frequent washing and drying too. A small sized cloth dries quicker as compared to a big one so this helps you ensure that  you do not run out of soft and dry sheets at any given time. It is a good practice to keep a sheet of water proof material.This is done to avoid any fluids leaking to the lower bedding and surroundings due to spilling of water,milk or other liquids.As wet surrounds lead to dampness and possibility for bacteria and other infection to thrive and harm the baby by virtue of skin allergies and infections.  We invariably used light colored and soft fabric for the baby as it is gentle to touch and does not cause any discomfort or rash to the baby's skin. The light colors are soothing to the eye and its easy to spot any dirt or wetness on the light colored fabric.

Checking and changing nappy's and diapers at regular intervals:
It is a good practice to check at regular intervals if the diapers have got dirty and need a change.
It is important to not let the baby be in a wet diaper as it not only gives the baby an uncomfortable feeling but can also result in skin irritation, rashes and infections.
An important aspect and addition to the diapers are disposable diapers such as Pamper Premium care pants. The biggest advantage is that they are very gentle and do not irritate the baby's skin.Its cotton like feel is #SoftestForBabySkin and lets the baby skin breathe. They can absorb up to 5 glasses of liquid from its srface and keep the baby dry up to 10 hours.
This means that one pampers dry pant can last the entire night and can not only keep the baby dry for the entire night and let it sleep undisturbed but also the tired parents can sleep in peace with the assurance that the baby would remain dry throughout the night. It has baby lotion to protect the delicate skin of our baby from inflammation and rashes.
Use soft cotton clothes that are loose so that the baby can move freely and its skin can breathe. While cleaning them do not use harsh chemicals or strong detergents. Wash them separately for other clothes using mild detergents.
Cleaning a baby and bathing it is a ritual in itself.An oil massage with baby oil and then giving the baby a bath with lukewarm water helps to clean the baby and keeps its skin healthy and clean. Only baby soaps that are free from harsh chemicals should be used to bathe the baby.
Then pat the baby dry after a bath with a soft towel.
A baby's skin needs moisturization one should ensure that the moisturizer is gentle and suitable for a baby's skin.
It is important not to expose the gentle skin of the baby to harsh sunlight.
Protect the baby from insects and mosquitoes: Use a mosquito net and avoid using mosquito repellants that are chemical based and can irritate and harm the baby's skin.

“Pampers brings you the softest ever Pampers Premium Care Pants. Its cotton-like softness is #SoftestForBabySkin and allows it to breathe, thus keeping baby’s skin soft and healthy, and your baby happy. ”

5 steps to keep your baby's skin soft

Beautiful,delicate,tender,soft are often the words used to describe a new born. When a baby comes into this world its needs begin to increase. The baby's skin is very delicate and soft and needs extra care and tending for it is that one thing that protects the baby from diseases,infection,heat and cold.However it is so soft and tender and gentle that it can easily be bruised or may get a rash if not properly tended to.
Quite often what people want to buy for a baby are clothes. In fact there are a range of clothes for babies out there right from the basic cotton garments to funky looking clothes that may use synthetic fabric.
While choosing clothes for babies always use soft cotton garment as the fabric of the clothes and also make sure that the clothes are not too tight fitting . Loose clothes let air in and out easily and let the baby grow naturally. Also one must ensure that there are no sharp attachments like broaches or emblems stitched on or attached to the garment which may cause bruises to the baby and no loose buttons that the baby may swallow accidentally.Avoid using pins in baby clothes which may accidentally prick the baby.
2) Quite often the moment we make the baby wear a new set of clothes we realize that the baby has made it dirty as it is too young and is not potty trained. So its time to change the diaper. Here comes an important part .The choice of diaper . Diapers and nappy's should again be of soft cotton and in case you are using the reusable ones then they should be cleaned ensuring that there are no soaps or detergents left in the fabric and the fabric should be inspected before putting on the diaper each time so that it is not hard as it may rub against the baby's skin and cause a bruise or a rash. Soap and detergent left in the diapers leads to nappy rash. So it is a must to wash them separately from other clothes and ensure the baby's clothes are thoroughly rinsed and no soap remains.
A disposable diaper such as Pampers Premium Care Pants with its cotton-like softness is #SoftestForBabySkin is a good choice. They come in a number of variants. They are easy to put on and take off making them an excellent choice of diapers.
They have the capacity to absorb up to 5 glasses of liquid from its surface and avoid any spills out of the diaper. Each diaper is very soft so it does not harm the delicate skin of the baby. It has baby lotion added to it which keeps the baby's skin moisturized. Each diaper can be used up to ten hours, so one diaper can last the entire night and let the baby sleep without feeling wet as its special absorbent material absorbs and locks away any liquid and wetness from the surface of the diaper.
3) Choose Toys wisely. Toys are a baby's best friend and each baby has his or her favorite toys that they want to keep close to them. While buying  toys choose wisely. Make sure that they are soft and do not have any sharp edges that can rub against the baby's skin and harm it. Also try to read the packaging to check if the toy is suitable for the age of your baby. Ensure that there are no sharp edges that make cause cuts or bruises to the baby as invariably little ones try to put anything into there mouth, ensure that neither can they cut themselves with the toy nor should it be so small that the baby can swallow it.
4) Take care of the baby skin by applying a mild moisturizing cream to the baby to keep its skin soft and smooth. As baby's skin is delicate exposing it to harsh sunlight can lead to sun burns, rashes and irritation. Avoid taking the baby out in hot sun for long hours that may cause a heat stroke if taking the baby out in the summer months apply sun tan cream suited for baby's delicate skin and try to keep the skin covered.
5) A daily body massage with a baby massage oil helps to keeps the baby's skin as soft, supple and healthy. In addition olive oil ans coconut oil can be used for the massage.

“Pampers brings you the softest ever Pampers Premium Care Pants. Its cotton-like softness is #SoftestForBabySkin and allows it to breathe, thus keeping baby’s skin soft and healthy, and your baby happy. ”
