Go the Bolt Style

BOLT at Phoenix MarketCity, Kurla

After I got confirmation mail from Blogadda,I visited my nearest mall which is Phoenix MarketCity at Kurla.I was startled at Shiny Red Bolt standing right now in front of me.GET.SET.BOLT Activity with the bunch of marketing guys were helding Contest.In the contest, they were asking some basic questions about the Car features.While i was busy posing with the magic stand alone, the photo came out with Narain KarthiKeyan!


Me with  Narain Karthikeyan
What comes to your mind when you think of buying a Tata Car? My Father in law is a Tata lover and for him it was quite disheartening that Tata motors which is a home-grown product is losing its value in this new competitive market .Today you will see variety of new entrants going more ahead of Tata.

I guess what we all were waiting for Tata to launch a car which is not only affordable but also capable car! My husband said that Design was the one area which Tata was never serious about! Looking at the Tata list of cars from Indica to Aria, they all have same old signature panache of Tata despite having different platforms and details.
Whenever we had a discussion at home of buying a car, my father in law’s first thought was Tata! So when my husband saw launch of Bolt, he loved the mature design of the new Tata baby which gives you variety of features to bring home Tata!

Being the driving enthusiasts, the car would be an obvious hero for the ones who are looking for quality, balanced suspension, light controls and many more things to offer you a comfort ride with your family.

We are a family of four looking for a comfortable hatchback out of which we need good space for me, good interior for my mother in law, the Tata family name for my father in law, and the mechanism for my husband! Here are the some of the key points we choose for buying Tata Bolt




Great Features 

Styling
My husband says that the front end of Bolt is similar to Zest, but I liked the signature grilled thing with piano black background .My husband says that the front end of Bolt is similar to Zest, but I liked the signature grilled thing with piano black background .The Projector headlamps which looked smoked were looking lovely and the main use of these headlamps for safety especially during fogs, I remember we were not having the same in our top end model of Swift Desire. The tall look of the car gave us the idea of good ground clearance which will be helpful for us during rains! Now, I am not so much into cars, so my husband is my car Wikipedia. All I could define about cars is through my eyes not my brain. So I stepped into the Car to check out the interiors, it was all black interiors! The cabin space was impressive; there was enough space for three adults in the back. And I liked the headroom too, so that talls could fit in well. While I was looking at the space and the interiors, my husband was busy checking out the steering wheel, he felt the grip was nice and hands up to sizing. Tata has done a good job in painting quality as well.






Connectivity

Tata has provided a hi-tech infotainment system which is exclusively designed by Harman. Harman is the  popular American company which manufactures and markets various high-end audio products such as JBL, Infinity, Becker etc.  Users have to download the free available Harman SmartLink app on their smart phones and link it to the Bolt’s Infotainment. This infotainment system have some really cool features than the usual ones, like voice command recognition making  calls, reading  sms, controlling  air-condition, changing song tracks etc.


Safety features
Tata has taken much care for the safety features in Bolt. Bolt will help you feel secure with its 9th generation ABS by Bosch. It will let you stay in absolute control as you steer through those tricky corners in the mountains and pothole roads. Dual airbags are provided on both fronts. Speed Sensing auto locks on all doors. You can safely drive with your family on city highways too.


Design
The First look at the car would gives you a sporty impression of BOLT. The Tata’s new signature grille with honeycomb mesh is another appealing part. The Rear part of the car looks quite contemporary. The Red glossy paint with the mesh grill and mc wheels and those black interiors combining the foglamp in the centre.

Comfort
When the Car look good, you have ample of safety features and engine is awesome.Now, every user will look for comfort.When you sit in the sedan you will feel the comfort, the space is quite bigger than usual hatch!You will experience the comfort with its cabin space.The feel of the sporty ambience's with those rugby shoulder seats and the powerful music will give you high level of comfort



Various modes of Bolt

Bolt was having various modes which includes the following
Eco Mode
Let’s press the Eco button to take the engine into its fuel efficient mode. Eco mode will bring benefits which matters like cost conscious budget.

Sport Mode
Sport mode is as the name says; it helps to response more with pedal and engine. A slight touch on the accelerator and you will feel the difference immediately.

City Mode
City mode when one wants a perfect balance for the two!

Other features like the audio system will make you go in love with this car, as they say you usually find this kind of music system in cars like Audi, Jaguar and Mercedes.





Interiors
If you are tall, you will feel the most comfort comparing it to the other cars. The Head room is spacious enough to fit you in. The Rear seats can accommodate 3 Adults without any hustle. Even the Front seatbacks have good knee room, so you can spare and sit in the front too. The roof of the car dooms upwards so that you feel the air of the cabin.
The Seats are relaxed. The Back rest recline angle is comfortable. You will also see the adjustable neck restraints at the back.

Her Idea Of Bolt


Few Questions when you ask me about Bolt 

1.What do you think about BOLT interiors?

Well, i loved the dark black interiors which will help my car looking clean all the time. It looks like sporty car instead of the same hatchback interior you see.The Dashboard is in dark brown color , nice combination.The Rear seat folder helps to create more space.So Tata is thinking about  extra guest too.You will find lot of leg room and headroom in the car.


2.What about the specifications of the car?

That's a difficult question for me.My husband can answer you well on this.
1.2 litre(1193cc) in-line four cylinder Revotron Petrol produces a max power of 88.8bhp@5000rpm while a peak torque of 140Nm@1700-4000rpm.
1.3 litre(1248cc) in-line four cylinder quadrajet diesel that produces a max power of 74bhp@4000rpm while a peak torque of 190Nm@1750-3000rpm
His Idea of Bolt


3.Do you know about safety features of BOLT?
Tata had kept the safety features of the BOLT into consideration.When you see safety features both on active and passive fronts.On passive, it had dual  SRS-airbags.Then the generation next Anti-braking lock system.

4.What colors are available?
That's a good question for me, I did emphasize on this one.The Marketing guy said " Colours like Red, White, Silver, Beige and Sky Grey are available.

5.Would you prefer to buy BOLT  this year?
Yes, we would definitely go for BOLT this year.There are many reasons for this family decision.
1.Being a family of five, we need space in our hatchback (Currently our hatchback car is too congested)
2.My father in law always insisted on safety first.In BOLT, we have plenty of safety features.
3.My Husband loved the Infotainment as he is the one who drives.
4.You will be amazed at the music system.The first thing i start in my  car is music.Romantic melodies will match the weather of your long drives.And if your parents are not interested in loud music, simply take off the sound intensity from the music speakers.
5.Sit once and you will feel the comfort.Cabin space will make you go to sleep out of comfort.

When I proposed him!



I proposed him in the best way I can, took him to his favourite place and asked him one of his lifetime question?

As a girl, I wanted to be the one who is proposed, yes the proposee . I really wanted to feel that most romantic moment when the love cupid did the right stroke.The feeling of the surprise romantic moment from the one who is in love with you and the love butterflies flying in the stomach, the music angels everywhere in the air. Have I been watching too much of Bollywood? But I still wanted that to happen. The proposal might be the last time you feel the feeling of being in fear, fear of making love decision. I would rather call it as nervous moments for both of us; those would be one of the best nervous moments every human can feel in their lifetime.Yes, i was in the fear of losing love .But then i thought let my love fly the highest and come back to me , if its mine!I know i am too filmy.

He is my best friend with whom I can share all my weakness, my happiness, my sadness, my strengths, my evil deeds, my humbleness and my honesty. He is the one with whom i can spend the rest of my life.

I thought maybe is unknown for his feelings or may be he is too dumb to think about it, but all I knew was He is my life.So lets take the initial step ! No matter, i am a girl.

That day when we went to his favourite place, just to talk. He is a talker, or I can call him chirping monkey of all time. As usual he was talking about his bikes and boy’s stuff.When all of the sudden, I said him “ I love you “.

He was quiet and stumbling upon on my words. Are you still stumbling ?
 And now he is my husband!

That is my love story’s proposal. If you love him or her, propose your love. There will be only two answers to your question, which is yes or no.If yes, then you were made for each other .But if no, there is more to life and someone else is made for you.

You are so close to me
Like my heart beats
You are with me here
I have nothing to fear
To you I belong
And with you I feel strong
You make me what really I m
You make me feel that I can
Nothing in my life is so clear
I hold you close to my heart oh dear!

During our college days we had funny moments of proposals, I still laugh when I think about it ...

Once my junior who was thin fair guy with fat glasses with those thick black frames and always found in library. He came up to me in canteen and he was very scared, as if I would eat him up. He said,” I like you “ ! Loved the daring guy

One of my friend who proposed this pretty girl, she scared him to death by saying “I will complain to principal about it “

From our college group, a girl who was really shy proposed by giving rose to one of the guy she liked, and he said yes. You know they are married now!

Life after Death



What is death? Can we really define it? The first death I saw in my life was of my grandmother, all of sudden she got heart attack and then she was dead! I was 7 year old at that time, and I saw death. As per Islam, the dead body is bathe clean and then wrapped into white clothes and relatives will come and see the body, give sympathy to the family members. I was not getting anything, here I saw death wrapped in white cloth. What next?

Are we really dead? Or we are gone somewhere else. My mom says that life after death is either heaven or hell, one day Allah will raise all the dead. That day the whole universe will be destroyed and then dead will be standing in front of Allah. On that day, every person will be rewarded as per their good or bad deeds.



I was pondering about the explanation, but I got a beautiful logical answer many years later. One day when I was trying to steal a chocolate, just for fun. Something in my inner self said me, “Allah is watching you “Counting on your deeds.Ofcourse, the stealing part was so planned that nobody would ever know that I stole a chocolate. But my guilt would never leave me alone. Your guilt can help you making good human being! And your guilt will help count on your good deeds.From that day, i knew that my every moment is counted upon , even if humans cannot see it .

You can say, if there is no life after death, the very belief in Allah becomes meaningless .Nobody would be ever concerned about the good and bad things on earth, and the guilt would never exist at all.

Surely, Allah is just and punish the ones who did crimes on earth, there is no sorry for one who killed and tortured thousands of innocent people, one who created great crimes, enslaved numerous people .That day would be the day of judgement when your good deeds will matter! Even a smile is a charity .Sharing a bread is good deed. Visiting a patient is counted. Everything is watched upon by the creator. I don’t understand religions, what I understand is there is only one creator and is the best planner.

The Belief in life after death not only guarantees success in the hereafter but also makes this world full of peace and happiness by making individuals most responsible and kind in their human activities.

Shifting to Bangalore-Go Quikr!



This one suits me the best I must say, Being in software field, we are posted anywhere in the world. Life is totally new when you are shifted to some new place. New place means unknown people, unknown area, new auto drivers waiting to attack you anytime, new locality, different food, new lanes, surprising water problems and then the adjustment continues.

So when I am posted to Bangalore!



The Foremost and first thing we need at any new place is Rent a house. I will go to Quikr and find the option as Real estate. Selecting the house type as per my requirement is 3BHK with semi furnished. I will try to filter the area nearest to my office location and also suits my budget.Quikr shows images of the apartment, from the images I will get the idea of semi -furnished room. I will contact the seller and try to negotiate the rent amount. I will possibly contact most of the filtered sellers according to my requirements. The first part and the major part of the living in the area is solved, I have to look for many other things too. I hope quikr will help me for that.



I am Television addicted person, so buying the television would be my another work too. Since I am not going to live here forever, I will better go with the second hand television in better working condtion. So here I will go for product type as Television, I will choose price range as per my budget and then go for the company I prefer for televisions. If I get the best price with good working condition I will go for the idiot box.

I have heard that maids in banglore are too costly to afford, She can fool me as I don’t know her language too, so I thought let’s go for washing machine. From Home and Kitchen appliances, I will go washing machine option.I am just wishing I will get the right one from here. As I am never used to buy the Home and kitchen appliances. I will rather contact mom to enquire what should be the requirements for the good washing machine!



Another option from Home and Kitchen appliances, as we need refrigerators for storage of food. Refrigerators are must during summer in Bangalore .I am just hoping I will buy this right from quikr.I will filter the refrigerators for 2 tons and check out the options displayed!
Air Conditions – Don’t kill me for that, but I am air condition addicted person, I would rather for the window acs, as I know they are cheaper and better.

I am also hoping that quikr helps me find some paying guest for my room, I can’t afford to live alone with such a high budget !

I am Me-Journey from ‘OR’ to ‘AND’



I am working with this company, living in this area, daughter of my proud mother and father, sister of my famous brother and best friend of  XYZ.#UseYourAnd 

Or I am simply  an engineer as they called, however I am a wife of my husband , I am a homemaker who looks after the household chores however I can, but that does not mean I am a good housewife too.Am I really what people think I am ?Or I am more than other’s thoughts diameter !

I am so much more! I have my ANDs then my Ors
Do you know who I am? I am an engineer by  profession  and I love making charity however I can and I am a homemaker and I am a lovely  friend and I am confident tutor and I am a blogger !

We are defined by so many things out of which something matter and some don’t. Let’s see how can we define me?
Your Family: - Are you doctor’s daughter ? Born in poor family or just a middle class struggler. Many times our identity is tied indirectly or directly tied by our family member. how much hard you try Abhishek bachan is always referred as amitabh’s son!

Your Religion: - Living in multicultural country like India, we are so much attached to our religion. And they stereotype us with our religion. People are unaware that there are black sheeps in every religion.

Your Occupation: - This is the first question people ask you nowadays.Are you an engineer? Or a lawyer or a writer. Office is the place where we spend maximum time of the week; hence it gets counted in our identity.

Your friends: - Can you imagine a group of bad boys with one good guy? Again there is big controversy defining good or bad. We are known by the company we roam with.

Are we really so much influenced by these factors? Or we somebody we built in ourselves. We cannot change anybody else views or opinions? But we know ourselves, we are not defined by somebody’s good or somebody’s bad! If anybody says you are only a teacher, does not mean you can be a good housewife? And if you are good teacher and great homemaker, does not mean you are not an excellent human being. There are many factors which masked us; we are happy with all but deep down us lies sorrows and fears. Nobody could ever know how are you? Except you

I am more than what you think!
I can make the world go shrink

I can smile
I can cry
That’s what made me human being

I can be a mother and a professional
I can be your wife and rational

I don’t need your support
All I need is your confidence on me

I am me
Not what all you thought !

Things that define me



She is my new friend, but I found her more amusing when I see her creating dependency on others everytime.No wonder, she is a rich girl living in the high end societies of Mumbai. She has never seen a plight of poverty nor has she seen scarcity of any basic needs. She gets it what she wants. She was Samaira!#UseYourAnd

You can call her girl born with silver spoon. She came to our college for passing her time, she never thought that education is important. For her Education is just a passing of time , as she was to bored of watching televisions and travelling countries .She choose diploma in tourism to study. She did her basic education as her parents thought she could at least speak English for the sake of travelling countries. She was chirpy and friendly.

Samaira was a happy girl with no idea of the world. Her aim was to marry a guy out of her parents’ choice that was her idea of living life! Until, one day she saw our other classmate Neha looking very tired! She was flabbergasted to know that the neha worked all night so that she could earn for her family.But Neha was confident enough to face the world.Samaira tried to console her and give her sympathy, but she refused and said,” I do not need anybody's sympathy ,Whatever i am on my own and i am very proud of it ,One day I will be someone whose not just a daughter of my family but somebody who has its own ANDs ” .Samaira had a strange feeling that day and she asked herself how is she ?#UseYourAnd

As she never saw any female member from her family working, samaira went home and asked her mother “ Maa, who are you ?” Her mother replied,” I am your mother,your father’wife “.
Samaira realized that whenever her mother needed something she need to ask her brother or her father for it.Samaira went to her father,” Who are you?” His father very proudly said “ I am Managing director of my company”.That day samaira could not sleep out of the feeling that she is so dependent on everybody else and she is nobody  of her own.Trying to express her thoughts she went to her brother  Rehan.Rehan said “what do you want ? You will get it no matter what “.
Nobody was understanding samaira,from that day onwards she started refusing her pocket money as she thought it was never her own money. She started walking to college.Now she wanted to earn her own money. Samaira knew it that she was more than a daughter of her parents!


After completing her diploma, she started working with Travel agency. Since she par knowledge of travelling , she used her knowledge for her career.That was the first step to her AND!#UseYourAnd

Now she can call her more than just a girl who is dependent on her parents!
