Being Smart is a Necessity

“I have wandered around the planet for too long. I have been to every corner of Earth’s human free areas” remarked the Frankenstein monster, finishing the tea in his cup.

“Has that made you a wiser or at least a smarter person? Does that at least leave you with certain vestige of being so?” asked Count Dracula.

“You have always been a man of doubt, Mr. Dracul. I have made it all the way here on this blood moon night with my smart use of magic. My mind is now complete with spells that go back many centuries. I am now full, with sorcery in my mind as well as soul” replied a confident monster, known to many by the name Adam, the first man on Earth.

“Where does magic stand in this age of science and technology? Even for the best trained creatures of the night like us, lack of knowledge of human technology has caused trouble in the past” said Dracula.

“Now, you are saying that you are placing human science and technology here, as a replacement for centuries old magic” wondered Adam.

“Yes, now you see that smart security camera? It has helped us to detect any human presence nearby, helping us to keep ourselves hidden from them – such cameras are placed all around the castle, and it is how we came to know that you were here. We have Smart Camera systems and Smart lights“.

“So, you didn’t use the natural vampire sense or the bats which used to carry your messages?” asked Adam.

“No, there are too many electricity lines and posts around. They get caught all the time, and so we have them working only within the yard. Nice drums, by the way”.

“No, don’t do that. It is not a drum – that thing is a smart wireless bluetooth speaker which is used to play simple and tension- relieving vampire music for our brothers and sisters inside the coffin” explained Dracula.

“I have heard that vampires have grown more health conscious. A little bird told me the same a few days ago in the Carpathians” remarked Adam.

“Yes, see this smart watch? It does almost everything for me. This light-weight version even senses vampire heartbeats. I can do some running and cycling with this – you know that I am a centuries old vampire, a lot older than you, and I have to keep myself healthy. It is a tough job to keep the vampire throne with the young blood around. I also have a smart fitness band in case this stops working”.

“The old age catches up with us all, doesn’t it? At least, you are immortal”.

“Being immortal has been a curse for too long, old friend. It is one advantage that you have, because you don’t really exist according to both science and religion, and therefore anything of this existence bother you less. I believe that you hold the key to the past, present and future. So, at least buy a mobile phone so that we can contact you in case the armageddon begins” remarked Dracula.

“I see that they have changed how the world works for you, but will that change mine?” wondered Adam.

“Yes, you should at least buy a smart watch or a fitness band, for they are the best of the Smart Wearable. Remember that you were created out of the unexpected. So, at least be health conscious. Search for a few of such items at Flipkart, one of the leading online electronic commerce websites”. advised Dracula.

“So be it. Who doesn’t want a  Smart Home? I have wanted a lot, but have managed to have very little” said Adam, as the blood moon spread its colours through the sky.

Couponhaat: Deals and Offers

We know how much the strength of online shopping has increased in the last few years. I did my first online shopping by the end of last year, and now I do a lot of online shopping; that was from Flipkart, and it was followed by Snapdeal and Amazon in the later first half of this year. My mobile phone, battery-powered fan, electric kettle, the mobile phones of my parents, my tab, emergency lights, selfie stick, headphones, books, laptop bag and even water jugs and pressure cookers have origins through online shopping, and all these have happened within the period of one year.

Buying products online was not the usual thing to do around here at this part of the world, but things have changed, even though there will be people who will prefer buying things locally. Nowadays, a higher number of people are looking at the online websites first and then the rest. We are always looking for some interesting offers online. But often we miss such offers as we can’t keep searching for them everywhere all the time – we do have other things to do, and these offers just come and go.

I have myself wanted to find those offers at Flipkart, Snapdeal and Amazon, three of my most visited online shopping websites. I usually end up buying the needed product without offers, and there was the need to change that. It just happened last month with a Swipe phone! I have already bought too many products which had absolutely no offer associated with them, and at times I wondered if buying something from the local stores was better. But I recently came across Couponhaat, one of the fastest growing coupons and deals website in India.

couponhaat

Couponhaat seeks to provide the best coupons and deals for online buyers in India. They choose the best from the popular online shopping sites. It always feels good to have earned some discount here or there, right? We have always loved buying something with discount or some other offer attached to the product.

Couponhaat allows you to search through online shopping sites as well as products and the categories associated with them. You can specifically look for the offers from Amazon or Snapdeal or you can check at the categories like Electronics, Fashion and the others along with the subcategories like Books, Tablets, Cameras, Footwear, Laptops and many others. When you choose the option, you will see the best offers along with the name of the online shopping site and you can go there by clicking “Shop Now”.

There might be many options in the form of online shopping sites, but to make the best use of it according to our needs, we should be using something like Couponhaat, the website which has 80,000 coupons to redeem and 5200 live coupons and deals. Such an option not only saves one’s money by providing the best available deals but also saves the shopping time which is spent online. Using Couponhaat will make sure that the online shopping experience will get better.

Bought from Flipkart

***A list of some interesting things I bought from Flipkart.

Eveready RF-06 Rechargeable 5 Blade Table Fan
Among all those things which I bought, this one has the power to save the day more than any other. I have always wanted the battery fans because the power cuts are so frequent, and we are still looking for an inverter. This is a rechargeable fan with LED lights which will help a lot when the electricity fails us again. With such willingness to play with te consumer feelings, the electricity board virtually asks us to buy this and blame them a little less. The switches also glow in the darkness and so things get easier. It is actually quite small, but still powerful. I had to call the electrician to assemble those pieces which came in the name of the fan, but it has served me very well after that 😀

Sajja Craft Wooden Wall Shelf
This comes as parts which can be assembled with ease, and how easy it is, can vary. I have actually used this one in a different way, not like the zig zag mode which is shown in the picture but in the model of the steps which go towards the corner. I have used it to keep a basket in which I put all my move tickets, a small desk calendar, a pen holder, a Transformer toy and a Buddhist pagoda souvenir which I bought from Sri Lanka. It can surely take a lot of weight. There is another one which I bought, and it has one layer for putting small things and some hangers for putting the keys. Click here for that one: Love Wall Shelf

Design o Vista Wooden Key Holder
When I went back to look at it, a few days after buying it when there was an offer, I saw that it was permanently discontinued. I actually wondered why. It is amazingly good-looking, even without it being that much of a use as a key holder because of the smaller size. Still, we can use it to create an effect of having something special in our rooms. It is now the first thing that the people who come into my room notice, and they are asking what it is. It looks like a small safe, and has a map on the front with a ship wheel and bowline on it. There is also another showpiece from the same company which I bought – a ship model which was a nice thing too – see The Figurine

Pigeon Kettle Favourite 1000 ml Electric Kettle
As a tea lover, I have always wanted an electric kettle; we actually had one already, but I wanted to have one for myself for those tea adventures. The other one is Prestige, with an extra coating, special colour, design and so costing a lot more; this is rather a cheap and worthy alternative. The kettle remains the easiest way to boil water, and there will always be that day on which it is too cold, but you really want to take a bath. So, I had to choose this one to save the day. I use this many times a day, and this should be among the most used electronic equipments at home – still, nowhere near the total time of this laptop working 😉

Anjali Multi Purpose Juicer Plastic Hand Juicer
I always wanted to keep making juice and drink during those breaks between tea, and with one part of my room being somewhat a kitchen, I add this one to the list of things used there. Watermelons and oranges were the best choices with the juicer, and with self-sufficiency in having something other than tea achieved, I can write more in peace. I hope to test it with grapes sooner or later. May be with harder fruits, it can serve as the means to some exercise, or may be even get broken, thus proving that we are strong enough 😀

Portronics POR 465
This did feel a little over-priced when I first looked at it, but the quality here is really good; just looking at the other less priced things will give you an idea of how much better this one is in comparison with anything else of similar type. The transmission speed is also a lot higher. There are four USB 3.0 ports to make sure that the problem of having a low number of USB slots is solved. I had always wanted something like this for my laptop because with the mouse, USB internet device and the external speakers connected, there was no free USB slot for me to connect anything more.

VISKO 601 Garden Tool Kit
Here is a multi-purpose device for the garden. This is a much needed thing to work on the beautification of the nature around our homes. The collection of tools will make us more interested in gardening as things geta lot easier. The product is surely worth the price and it has inspired more of a family gardening here. ***These are the seven interesting things which I bought from Flipkart during the last six months. Do you have a similar list? I believe that you do, because we are all sailing on the same boat of blogging, and internet shopping should come naturally to us.

Enlightenment: Myntra Model

Count Dracula was preparing for the first All-Nation Conference at the United Races Imperial Organization Centre which is within the High Elf lands. He represented the New Vampire World on this first ever peace conclave which was attended by the representatives of all nations of the realm including the shadows. He was searching all around the room for one special thing, but it was clear that he never found the same.

Uncle Dracula: This is impossible. I can’t go for this meeting. We are supposed to have some variety here. I am unable to choose a style which is different or even something which suits the vampire model.

Vampire Owl: You have your vampire cloak which you have been wearing for centuries. It is your usual model, and you always wear the black with a very small touch of red or white with which people identify you.

Uncle Dracula: No, it is too common. It is like what everyone have seen me in, and they will think that I never have a shower or change my clothes. I am a supposed to be a world leader. I need to look stylish. All the garment shops in our nation have the same kind of clothes only, and the vampire fashion is always the same. What am I to do?

Vampire Bat: Why don’t you go and visit an online shopping website?

myn

Uncle Dracula: Yes, I have some of the links to the websites saved on my laptop and I did search, but couldn’t find the right clothing there either.

Vampire Bat: There lies the problem. The best online shopping website for fashion is no longer available on the internet in your laptop. It has gone app only. You need to use it on Android, iOS or may be get your first mobile with the Windows Phone.

Uncle Dracula: They are app only? Why?

Vampire Bat: Well, fashion is unique for everyone, and for this personal experience, mobile phone is the best option. You wanted to be different and special for the conclave, and this is the best option in that case. The App Party with fifty to seventy percent offer was till yesterday, but you can still find some nice options now.

Vampire Owl: In the men’s section, among the coats and jackets, get the John Players Men Beige Wool Blend Slim Fit Blazer. These Navy Blue Aviator Sunglasses which I am wearing were bought from Myntra too.

Vampire Bat: You need to buy some jewellery for the vampire brides too. Otherwise, they are going to be bloody unhappy.

Uncle Dracula: It is indeed interesting. I always peferred to have it on the mobile phone. Otherwise, Mavis always tampers with the laptop. She has become such a big IT pain on my fangs. Things will be easier with the app – after all, this is my personal device as of now, and it is time to stop downloading only those endless running games.

Vampire Owl: There has already been about ten million downloads, and so you are too late – just get into it.

Vampire Bat: No, Uncle Dracula is never late. As this is a personal thing, another world of style begins with the uncle going through the same. You personal space will bring a new level of awesomeness to the world.

Uncle Dracula: It will always be with me, and shall be so easy to use. So I don’t see a reason why I am to choose against it.

Vampire Owl: Ex-act-alley!

Vampire Bat: What was that? Did you just say the word “exactly” like an undead zombie pirate who died while trying to raid the New Vampire Harbour?

Vampire Owl: Just trying another personal style, this time with words. No dead or undead pirate model here. No undead was harmed related to this.

Uncle Dracula: Yours is no style anymore! Get ready for my unique style from the Myntra android App of mine! Go and come back tomorrow. You shall see something special. And don’t tell Mavis.
