My Airtel, My App!

Mobile phones are no more the virtual world. The world of mobile phones is the real world. From paying your bills to connecting to your near and dear ones, the mobile world enables and empower you to save your time, money, and energy.

So, Let's shake it!

Don't take me otherwise. I am talking about My Airtel App. And why am I asking you to shake it? Let me explain in this post in the shortest possible way. 

Because that's how it works. You shake it and it throws at you amazing offers, customized plans, mind-boggling data packs, and a lot many surprises. The App Interface is simple and doesn't confuse you with too many details. You need a recharge, enter your number,  enter amount and get done with it.

For special occasions like your birthdays, it offers you surprises and special packages. 

The second best thing is adding tasks/actions to I Want To feature. With an App like this, you can do multiple things like recharging your mobile phone or taking care of your DTH connection. I Want To feature helps you to save your favorite actions at one place so that you can save time and cut to the chase in case you want to speed up the recharging process. 

A one stop solution to all your daily need tasks. No need to go through the tedious process of logging in, entering amounts, and then waiting for the browser to load. Single click solution. 

Last but not the least, the Calculator feature is another gem. Depending upon your usage, you are allowed to choose your data plan. And how exactly you calculate your daily usage? That's what this Calculator does. It asks you various inputs like the number of web pages you browse on a daily basis, number of songs/apps/games worked online on a daily basis. And then it performs some arithmetic and the best suited plan according to your needs is what you are told to take up.

So let the app do all your math while you enjoy your web experience at the best rates. 

So you read 50 odd articles in a day, listen to a couple of songs on music apps, and watch few videos online, My Airtel will calculate your approximate data usage and offer you the best available plan according to your needs.

Why spend more than you actually need to?

The App doesn't even occupy much space on your mobile phone and is quite light to handle even on the basic smartphones. All you need is a sound Internet connection and rest all will be taken care by the app.

In a nutshell, My Airtel App is the simplest way to manage all your airtel services through your handset.

#EkNayiLeague with Kapil Dev!

The man who got us our first Cricket World Cup is inviting us again to join hands with him. A grand venture of sorts. Just that he wants us all to guess before he formally announces what his venture is all about.

He names it #EkNayiLeague. It all started with Kapil Dev asking celebrities to guess about his New League on twitter. He invited sports-persons and celebirities from all walks of life to be a part of his league. He just fell short of inviting the Prime Minister of India to join his league as well.

So now what this New League would be all about?

A sports league on the lines of IPL? Or a TV Series show where Kapil will invite celebrities to share their stories with him? Or some new online show where people will participate by means of Social Media Channels?

Before we make our guesses about this new league, let's have a look at a video where Kapil Dev talks about his new league.

All our lives we have been told that if you put your heart to your work, nothing can stop you from achieving what you want. Even Kapil Dev has said the same on numerous occasions, while commentating or while being interviewed by various channels.

However, while giving us clues about the new league, Kapil Dev clearly mentions not to khelo dil se because if you do that, you lose.

The Subtle Hint

However, there lies a subtle hint in the image shown above. Kapil is pointing towards his head. So what does that mean? 

My first guess would be a Quiz Contests of the celebrities. Most probably related to Cricket in particular or Sports in general. So you don't have to be emotional while you play this league. All you have to do is to apply your brains and think real deep so as to win this league.  

And because the word is Ek 'Nayi' League, most probably all the money involved will go to charity. My optimistic guess would be donating all the prize money to the victims of natural calamities across India. That's what would make it a new league for sure. 

My second guess is about the involvement of general public. A quiz contest between the celebrities and general public. Wouldn't that be innovative and fascinating? If public wins, they take their prize money home. If the celebrity wins, they donate all their money to the victims of natural calamities. 

A win win situation for all the stakeholders.

So that's what I think this new league would be all about. What's your guess?

You can mark your guess at EkNayiLeague and if your guess is any good, who knows, you might as well win 100,000. And a chance to meet Kapil Dev as well.
