Car Upgrade - Now, Quikr Quikrrrrr

Hello Reader,

Gone are the days when buying and selling used items were a difficult task. With the help of websites like Quikr and their new mobile app Quikr NXT, it has become a cake walk to find buyers and sellers. Also, the gap between the buyers and sellers has decreased. With the help of Quikr NXT app one can actually, comfortably chat with the client and discuss on each point clearly and then make the final deal. All you have to do is make an account, upload a picture of your selling item with a few details and wait for the buyer to find it.

For example, if I have to sell my old car and buy a new, better featured car, all I have to do is this:

1.       Wash my car to make it look photogenic. J
2.       Take some good photographs from different angles.
3.       Upload it on the Quikr NXT app.
4.       Categorize it under ‘Cars and Vehicles’.
5.       Write a few details and good words for my car.
6.       Wait for a buyer to bat an eye on my sell.
7.       Like a good Guajarati businessman, convince the buyer over a chat.
8.       Once I get a satisfactory price, I seal the deal.
9.       Exchange my old car for money.
10.   Miss my old car.

Simple! Isn’t it?

The exchange offers which branded showrooms provide are not often satisfactory enough. They offer you a price which you find is not worthy for you lovely old car of which you have taken care of all these years like a baby. You want the best price and it can only be achieved when a trust is built between the buyer and you. And, rather than talking over the phone, where you might forget to mention a few details or get interrupted in between your talk and make you miss a few points, chatting can help you make a thoughtful conversation and written form is always good for future reference. There would be no complaints and allegations later.

So, now that I have sold my old car and have the money, it’s time to move on and buy a new car. Before, going for a brand new car, I would definitely look out for some second hand options. And again, which better place than Quikr to find a good deal. Browsing for a while in the ‘cars and vehicle’ category can find me the exact car I was looking for but at a much lesser price. All I have to make sure is that the condition is good enough and that all the official papers and documents are available. And that I can make sure by having a detailed conversation with the seller himself. No third parties or agents are welcomed.

And then, adding up the money from my savings, may be and the old car money, I ll buy my next, bigger and better car and thank the Quikr NXT app for making the upgrade so easy for me.

Live, Fearlessly

Hello Reader, 
We have one life and so many constraints to live with. Half of the time we spend in realizing what we want. And by the time we realize it, we have moved on in life. We have to deal with other responsibilities and go with the crowded flowing river.  And then after some good rafting and struggling we encounter our dreams at many moments. But, never have a complete rendezvous unless we feel we are secure enough to take the risk. So, we have one life, we are sure. All we need to have is a bucket-list, to somehow free yourself from all the entanglements and mark a tick to every point on your wish list. 

And, if I had a choice to enjoy my life with no such everyday constraints, this is how my bucket list would look like:

1.       To Write my One Dream Novel 

Well, no doubt. I want to write and publish at least one good book. I definitely am working on it. All I need is a little more seriousness and dedication. 
But I also have to split my time for my job. So, for now, it’s a balance-balance situation. 

2.       To master in a musical instrument

Yes, and record a song with A R Rahman. I am pretty intermediate in playing the Keyboard instruments. And, I need to learn just a few more things and I would be pretty better. So, it will be on my bucket list to take out time for learning the instrument. 

 3.       To Travel the world 

Travelling always gives a great experience. And, going to various places makes one a learned person. I liked The Hobbit for one thing: that the Hobbit chose to break out from his comfortable hobbit hole, on an unexpected journey and when he returns, he returns with a lot of stories to tell and moments to share. Be it with family, friends or you alone, keep travelling. 

 4.       To make many lives happy

Happiness is in giving and sharing. Educating the needy children, visiting orphanages and old age homes, or supporting any good cause is what will make you a worthy human. Otherwise, the usual Wake Up, Eat, Sleep, Repeat routine will be waste of a precious life.

 5.       To own a house in a Hill Station

I have been happiest when I was at places like Shimla, Manali, Ooty, Rishikesh, and Dehradun. If I have enough money, I will probably spend it on buying a nice house in one of the hill stations. There are many obvious reasons for this; it usually stays cool, winters are longer, peace of mind, not crowded, scenic panoramic beauty, and all freshness. So, I have no second thoughts in owning a house at a hill station.

All this can happen; in a very less time if we prioritize in acquiring these wishes and break out from the usual rat race. But, we fear from taking the risk and going out of the way. To jump into the right boat, all we need is a security, a little push which gives us the faith and confidence to take the leap.
