My Airtel App

Airtel is always one of the preferred network provider for me as it has better coverage, lesser call drops compared to other service providers, better prepaid and postpaid plans and last but not the least the most innovative among its competitors. As they rightly say, the Smartphone network, it brings so many benefits for the smartphone users.
As an icing on the cake, they have come up the the My Airtel App which is specially designed for the smartphones and brings a host of services and privileges for users. So I decided to download this app, and explore its features. Although there are a multiple features that I would be using, let me elaborate the top 3 on my list -

1. Airtel Surprises - With every recharge, we get coupons for shopping, food, entertainment and so much more. I would login to the app and buy a recharge of say Rs. 50/-. Along with the recharge I get to choose from the various discount and free coupons across categories. They have popular brands like Cafe Coffee day, PVR for movie tickets, Myntra and Flipkart for online shoppers, VLCC for the health and skin conscious people and so much more.  For instance, I would by a coupon for Rs 50 off in CCD. The airtel app would send me the coupon code voucher on my mobile. The next time I visit CCD, I can show them my coupon and avail the discount.

2. Everything on One Screen - Not just recharge, there is a lot I can do and manage with this app. I can pay by DTH bills, buy Internet packs, view my usage, call balance, data consumed, order games, check my payment history and manage all my Airtel related bills at one place. I can select my favorite tasks in my "I Want To" screen which acts a favorites. When I login the next time, I can go the 'I want to' screen, select from one of my favorite transaction and complete it in simple steps. Hassle free and amazing application by Airtel.

3. Ease of Payments - Paying your bills has never been so easy. With safe and secure payment option on the Airtel app along with the simplicity of screens makes you want to download it and use it every time. I allows various payment options such as Credit card, Debit card, Netbanking and Airtel Money. I can save my card details for a faster checkout and in 3 simple steps, I can pay my bills, recharge my phone, buy games and do a lot more. It lets me track my bills in real time and has a user friendly interface.

All in all, this is a must download app for smartphone users as it provides a host of tasks in an easy interface.

Ek Nayi League

Lots of videos are doing rounds and the twitter is full of tweets about #EkNayiLeague but no one exactly know what it is going to be about. Videos from the Cricket Legend Kapil Dev are keeping people guessing about what this exciting league is going to be.
I saw 5 videos of Kapil Dev, which will be soon seen on television, instructing great sport achievers that this League is going to be something different and one is bound to fail if they play with their heart. So what is this Nayi League? Here are some of my guesses -

Well, from the look of it, since Kapil Dev, the man put gave India its World Cup in 1984 and who is the face of cricket since ages, is promoting the league, it seems that this is going to be a different kind of cricket where the challenges would be such that one needs brains and not heart to win the game. But when I look at other videos, my impressions about the #EkNayiLeague change.

In the second video, Kapil advises MS Dhoni, who is one of the greatest cricket captains India has seen, to never take retirement, because stars never retire. This makes me think that this is a league where age does not matter and even retired cricketers who have the spirit can participate in it. The only condition that if they play with all their heart and passion towards the game, it will be a hit wicket. Heart has no place here.

There is a third video where Kapil appreciates Sania Mirza for playing with all her passion and leaving her mark while she comes from a country where less than 300 girls play tennis. He invites her into his Nayi League but again warns against playing Dil se. This makes it clear that his league is definitely not about cricket. This is either a sport where any sportsperson can participate or a reality show format.

In another video Kapil talks about how sports persons are making so much money around the world and in India through the IPL and other formats.He is bringing a similar league but this does not need to be played with heart and passion, rather with brains. Then Kapil speaks to another Kapil (Kapil Sharma) of Comedy Nights with Kapil fame praising his talent and how Kapil calls guests on his show and throws a googly. He again warns him that this new League would be a googly if he plays it with heart.

This makes it clear that the New League will see participation from celebrities across sectors, not just cricketers or sports persons but also from television stars.
To conclude, I think this would be a celebrity reality show where players have to beat each other with their brains and not play with heart. Talking of brains, it could also be a quiz based show or may be related to stock market or trading where people loose if they play with their heart, the only way to win is brains and thinking with your head. Lets wait to hear it from Kapil itself about what this Nayi League is about.
