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.

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.

Try this Free of cost for a good ranking on Alexa & Moz

Rankings are very crucial nowadays for a better visibility on various search engines. We are sharing below the Top most options, for a better ranking of your Website or a Blog. You can try the Alexa rankings as well as the Moz for a better visibility. You can have a Free trial to see the difference, before opting for a suitable package.

ALEXA :
Just pay $9.99 per month for a Basic account with Alexa for a website or a blog, and your Alexa rankings will start improving. If you opt for the Insight or the Advanced account, you have to pay $49 or $149 per month respectively. If you have opted the Basic account, at the rate of $9.99, it will cost you something around 8,000 per annum for a better ranking on Alexa. 



The Basic account is for the Small business or small website owners. Insight account is for the professionals, whereas, the Advanced account is for the growth masters. All these Alexa accounts have different features, depending upon the money to be paid. You can even go for a free trial run on Alexa for 7 days.



MOZ : 
Similarly, if you wish to have a better ranking and visibility on MOZ, You can choose a monthly as well as a yearly payment plan. The monthly option has four variants, i.e. Standard for $99 per month, Medium for $149 per month, Large for $249 per month, and the Premium for $599 per month. If you opt the annual option, the price is a bit lower, i.e. Standard for $79 per month, Medium for $119 per month, Large for $199 per month, and the Premium at $479 per month. You can begin with a Free Trial for 30 days.




The only problem is that if you convert the above prices into Indian currency, the amount becomes very large and almost out of the scope of the Non Professional bloggers. The result is that the Non Professional Bloggers or Website owners are getting Lower rankings and lesser visibility on certain platforms. 



Both Alexa & Moz, must look into the cost impact on the currency conversion and must introduce a better option for the very vast Indian market. In my opinion, even if the prices are reduced to the bare minimum, they will still make good money as more and more persons will be able to join them.

As discussed above, once the Free trial options are over, the paid plans of Alexa are as below :
