Lufthansa is more Indian than you think !

Lufthansa Logo

You may think like Indians, relax like Indians, eat like Indians, play like Indians, dance like Indians, as well fly like Indians, but still, you can not beat the Indians. In fact, you cannot even beat like the Indians, because you are not an Indian.




The Indian way of thinking is definitely a unique contributor to our success. Our thinking is truly based on our Traditions and values that we have got from our ancestors and that we start learning, even before our birth. Our thinking is based on the lessons that we have learnt from Geeta, Quran, Bible & Guru Granth Sahib.



Moreover, we are too fast in adopting all the modern techniques also. Truly, we the Indians are a great combination of our traditional values, as well the latest modern techniques available all around. That’s the reason, Indians are regularly visible in almost every part of the world, on the Top most positions.




For example, Satya Nadella - the CEO of Microsoft,  Indra Krishnamurthy Nooyi - the CEO of PepsiCo, Shantanu Narayen - the CEO of Adobe, Surya Mohapatra - the CEO of  Osborn Group, Ajay Banga - the CEO of Master Card, are amongst the Top most Indians worldwide.



Similarly Francisco D'Souza with Cognizant's global delivery, marketing and sales, Sanjay Mehrotra with San Disk, Dinesh C Paliwal with Harman International, Sanjay Jha with Motorola, Ravichandra Saligram with Richie Bros Auctioneers, are amongst the top notch Indians worldwide.



Even the Google has seven persons of the Indian origin of its prominent positions. The list is so big that it will be very difficult to note down all the names on a paper.  




The above description clearly indicates about my ideologies also.  I love everything that belongs to Indian Culture, Indian traditions as well Indian values.




I faced a very tough situation in my life when we came to know that my father was suffering from the last stage of cancer and he had no more than a year to survive. These were only our Indian ideologies and values, that made all of us, to smile together, even in those critical moments, and that resulted in the enhancement of the life of my father by almost four years. Though he departed years ago, our eyes still become wet on thinking about him, but we have the relief, that he could survive for almost four and half years, even in that difficult situation.


We are truly the Proud Indians. In the same manner, Lufthansa has also become more Indian than you think. The minute you board, you get a pleasant voice in your ears saying NAMASTE. It has appointed 200 Indian Flight attendants, as Lufthansa has understood very well that there are no better hosts than Indians. While in the air, we are offered a truly Indian Meal, a cup of Garam Chai, along with the Bollywood Blockbusters, Indian radio channels as well the News papers in Hindi. Even you must try the LINK, to view and understand that there are many concerns, who have now become more Indian, than you think.

REGAL THEATRE - End of an era or the beginning of a new era ?

With the Last two shows of the Legend Raj Kapoor, Regal theater has stepped forward to become a part of the History. The theater was built in the year 1932 and its prominent visitors included Lord Mountbaton, PT Jawahar Lal Nehru, Amitabh Bachhan and the Legend Raj Kapoor himself.


As usual, even today the picture hall displayed the House Full board, as all the tickets of this cinema hall were sold out. Today is the last day of this theater in Delhi as its being closed for a new beginning. I remember the movie that i had seen in this hall after my marriage, years ago, and a song in the movie was - छोड़ आए हम......, वो गलियाँ.......


Its expected that soon it will be converted into a multiplex and if reports are to be believed, its first floor will have the world famous Madame Tussauds wax museum. Therefore, we can say that its not only the end of an era, but also a beginning of the new era.

This is Tata's first compact sedan that borrows its design elements and language from last years hatchback – Tiago. The Tigor was first showcased at the Geneva Motor Show this month and will be available in petrol and diesel variants.
For competition sake, Tigor competes with Maruti Suzuki DZire, Honda Amaze and Hyundai's Xcent.
Tigor is definitely a level up on design for Tata Motors, which has been conceived with a prime focus on city driving, that doesn't cost a bomb delivers on most aspects. You get smoked projector headlamps,

Phillauri - movie review

Phillauri - a movie starring Anuskha Sharma & Diljit Dosanjh. 

Diljit Dosanjh is a real craze in the Punjab and Anuskha Sharma is also a heart throb of Indian Cinema. The new launch, " Phillauri", is a good movie. Though the viewers may feel confused between the scenes of 1919 as well 2017, that were just sharing the screen, one after another. But its connection to the incident of Jalianwala bagh in Amritsar, changed the thinking of the viewers and enhanced its ranking. The love scene in the era of 1919 between a village girl and a mushtanda of a pind were not at all required. The ghost show at the end of the movie, at the Jalianwala bagh, brought tears in the eyes of many. The visuals of the era pf 1919 looked quite realistic and impressive. The movie has been made on a budget of 21 crores and seems it has already recovered a major part of it. It seems to be a profitable venture with its maximum viewers from the North.

Tata Tigor Style back - The New World of Style

After the great Tata Hexa Experience, we again got an invite from the Tata Motors to try our hands on its new sedan – TIGOR, which is to be launched on 29th March. 



The first look of TIGOR was quite impressive. Though its front and sides looked somewhat similar to TIAGO, its rear side looked much better than all of its competitors in this segment. A beautiful car indeed.


The headlight is a smoked type with a black treatment given to it which makes it more impressive. The side profile of the new sedan is again similar to the Tiago but it looks more beautiful than any other car of this segment. 



The slope on its back makes it a top notch sedan and quite beautiful in looks with LED stop lamps and the LED tail lamps. The petrol version has the 15 inch Alloy wheels while the Diesel version has the 14 inch alloy wheels.




Interiors again are very impressive. It has the Automatic climate control system. The infotainment system has been designed by harman, with a five inch touch screen, eight speakers, and with the best of the sound quality in this segment. 



The steering wheel is quite sporty and adjustable, and has the telephony as well the audio controls on it. Seating system of the TIGOR also looked quite comfortable.



It has a boot space of 419 litres. Multi bar links make it easier to remove and keep the baggage while traveling. It has the 1.2 litre Revotron petrol engines with 84 bhp and the 1.05 litre Revotorq Diesel engine with 69 BHP.


We had to start from the Aerocity in Delhi, towards the Heritage Transport museum in Sohna & back but via NH 8, while returning. We were offered both the petrol as well as the Diesel versions. 



Kartik from Chennai was with me and he opted the Petrol version. The journey started and we passed from all kinds of roads that included busy ones, hilly as well the rural. The sedan performed perfectly and Kartik looked quite happy on driving it for the one side journey while I was busy in clicking the pics & videos.



While coming back I was in the driving seat and the beautiful machine that I had was a Diesel version. It was my first feel of TIGOR on the driving seat and truly it was quite impressive. The sedan was quite smooth in driving and truly very comfortable. 


Please view the technical details of TIGOR with beautiful pics, courtesy Tata Motors, in the video being embedded below. Bookings are now open and you can make your booking with any of the Tata Tigor dealers.
