Top 10 Memes of Year 2017 that Drove the Internet Crazy!!!


Well, If I say “Social sites being our second home”, I think I might be right. Almost all of our time is dedicated to the social media. One new notification arrives and we keep checking our phones so eagerly as if there would be a text showing, “Congrats you have won 1 crores”!!. hahaha..

When we are so much into it, how can memes not affect us? We go through a meme and we feel so connected as it was made for us. By reading every other or so, we keep tagging our friends. Let us just have a look at memes of 2017 and 18, that broke the desi internet.

1.“Kya Aapne Kabhi Online Hotel Search Kiya Hai??”!!!!


And yes that’s the trivago guy, who just keeps us asking this question all the time. If you got me right, mark my words, “All the time”. Even the trivago guy Abhinav Kumar himself knows that he is being memed now. The best part is he himself keeps sharing the memes made over him.

 Here’s something you can’t stop laughing..

Relative: Humlog aa rahe hai tumhare ghar pe do hafte k liye

Me: Kya aapne Kabhi online hotel search Kiya hai??? Hahahha..

2.“Ye Bik Gayi Hai Gormint”!!!



Remember that old lady with her old regular specs and a dupatta over his head keeping abusing our so-called system. But not all that got noticed, people bookmarked one line from the whole statement. I.e. “Ye Bik Gayi hai Gormint”. The funniest part is she pronounced that way and we accepted the same way.

“Gormint” and not “Government”

And the line, “Yeh saare milke hume bewakoof bana rahe hai” just grabbed even “Gormint’s” attention too.

3. And here Comes the Selfie Queen


“Selfie maine le li aaj”

“Selfie maine le li aaj”

Can you please stop her from singing?, “Kuch bhi gaati hai yaar tu”, and what not people said about her singing. But how can someone stop the selfie queen aka Dhinchak Pooja. And the drama was not over. She even entered the Big Boss House. I mean a massive respect for the Big Boss makers.

4. Aunty Ki Ghanti


I just can’t get over the things that what is the reason behind so much success of such an awful song. I mean at one hand you keep complaining about the lyrics all the time and then a notification flashes,” Rapper Om Prakash’s Aunty ki Ghanti crossed one million views over the internet”.

One question I really want to ask my online audience, “Bhai chahte kya ho tum???”

5. The Sulochan Boy


Ok…Naam Kya hai tera??

And here a flying answer comes,”Kamleeeesh”. The video was all about a 13-year-old boy who was addicted to the drugs. He had them in the form of a solution tube which he called “Sulochan”. However, most of the internet crowd was worried of the fact “how small kids are being addicted to these drugs because of the poverty level”.

6. Kangana Ranaut on Aap Ki Adalat

kangana ranaut on aap ki adalat

The controversy between the great actor Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut was so much into the air at a time. But after the actress’ interview at Aap Ki Adalat, it started taking the form of the memes.

And the memes were like, Indian moms saying to their child, “Tum aur tumhare pitaji k paas toh duniya bhar ka paisa hai” and what not.

7. Link your Aadhaar by 31st December


Well, 2017 mobile users are well aware of the notification “ Link your Aadhaar by 31st December”. From bank accounts to mobile numbers to your Paytm account you were asked to link everything with Aadhaar.

Most of us were like, “Saans lelu??? Ya use bhi aadhaar se link karau??hahaha..

And the hilarious one was after the arrival of the movie “Tiger Zinda Hai” and the tiger was asked to link his aadhaar card and PAN card with his bank account. Isn’t it like what!!!

8. And one of the Great Show KBC


Agree or not, the tone of Mr. Amitabh Bachchan from the SONY Tv’s show became the internet sensation over a couple of weeks. If you are still not getting me, just go through these.

  • Me after studying 33 seconds

“Aur yaha lenge hum Chota sa break”

  • When she rejects you by saying she doesn’t want to be in a relationship right now, and she gets a bf next week.

I was like, “Bahut hi umdaa kheli aap, taaliyaan bajti rehni chahiye”.

  • Abhishek: Papa, What are your views on my acting career?

Big B: “Aap chahe toh quit kar sakte hai”

I am sure u got me.

9. Koi Nahi ayega


And the meme is all about when you invite your friends at a Jain’s wedding. Your reply is like, “Mai likh k deta hun..koi nahi ayega”. Well, the dialogue was famous after the Oscar nominated movie Newton.

10. Nagar Palika Ko Bulao


Last year a video came into the scene where a boy was complaining about the potholes of his city and within a second he himself falls into it. And from then the meme became viral.

The words were like “Pehle gaddha surakshit karao, Nagar Palika ko Bulao”.

I bet these were something that really made us fall for the social media.


8 Upcoming Movies 2018 with Strong Female Characters


We live in an extremely male dominated society and our movies are a reflection of that society. Going by this definition we shouldn’t wonder why our films have always portrayed women as “Abla Naari”. So it’s given they were to say dialogues like “Bhagwan ke liye mujhe chhod do” and all. That was not it!

Our strong ladies were also portrayed as “Sanskari Ladki”. A girl who listens to parents, sings bhajans, bear the humiliation and husband’s torture and says “Mera Pati mera devta hai”. Thankfully, the time has changed now!

Today’s women are much more liberated, modern, and speaks her own mind. And that’s reflected in today’s film too. With movies like Piku, Tumhari Sulu, Padman, Pink, Queen, Chak De India!!, English Vinglish and of course Dangal, the picture is changing. This year too you can witness some power back performances of finest actresses of our time.

Paytm’s new Ad touches the Dream wire of corruption infected Indian system

paytm ad

Paytm has been touching social issues in its recent ads, from an earlier ad where a relative transfer a few Paytm bucks to this ad which shows the dream of every common man in India, Paytm has been glowing a step ahead in terms of brand projection while connecting itself to social dreams.

Here, in this new ad, Paytm has shown what a cashless nation would be. More or less, what a cashless & corruption-less nation would be. There are 3 parts in the ads. First part shows a typical Sharmaji-Guptaji Govt. official stereotype taking ‘vada-paw’ as a token of friendship, not as a bribe. Second part shows a traffic police constable and the third part goes with the donation scene in an Indian education institute, where the donation actually is a box full of books.

The ad is touching and is successful in propagating the brand proposition (which is Paytm Wallet) taking the date of release as Indian Independence Day. have a look at the ad :

10 Reasons to Recharge Online

Once we use to stand up in front of the counter of the ‘recharge wale ki dukaan’ and ask for recharges tarrifs and new offers. The shopkeeper would indicate the big chart hanging on the walls or may recommend us personally as per our budget. For some, the days like this are gone. For some, the recharge shops are an alternative while the internet is not around. For some, it is like “What is online recharge”. Still, there are 10 strong reasons why one should recharge online.

1. Anytime :

You can recharge the mobile anytime you wish for. Be it 3 in the morning or 11 in the night. An online user have the accessibility to online recharge 24X7.

2. Anywere :

You can recharge from anywhere (if you have a smartphone of-cource). Place is not a limitation. You can recharge your sim card while on a roof, while commuting or even while having lunch.

3. No need to search for shops :

You need not to ask “yaha recharge ki dukaan kahan hai?” (is there a recharge shop around here?). Be it any new town, city or even state, you need not to locate for a recharge shop. All you need to locate is your phone.

4. privacy of your number :

recharge online

You have an option not to provide your number to the recharge shop owner. Your number stays with you and in the safe hands of technically advance recharge sites.

5. There are offers:

There are various offers which can lead you to have some extra savings while recharging online. For example : You can get some GV while paying bills.

6.  It is your own digital wallet :

You can recharge anytime with your digital wallet. You can first submit some amount of money in the wallet and then can pay through it. You can also use this wallet for the offline payments as well. Some petrol pumps and some of the auto-rickshaw are now integrated with paytm wallet payment.

7.  You can earn cashback :

Not only this, you can earn cashback on your recharges while recharging online. This is one of the most lucrative feature of the whole online recharge processing spectrum.

8. You can pay bills from the same recharge destination :

Majority of the sites are providing the option of paying bills through the cashback you’ve earned in your wallet. This is really great as it automatically gives you an option of having the money in your wallet from recharge cashback and utilising it for the process of the bill payments.

9. It is very simple and easy :

Yes indeed, the simplest one is Paytm though. The process of online shopping, once registered in the protal of your choice, seems like a child’s play. it would hardly take around 40 seconds to pay online for your mobile recharge if you have your card saved.

10. Make your own decisions :

You can see all of the available offers, recharge coupons and all the plans for prepaid and postpaid payments for your operator type. This would inturn help you to make a decision based on the provided amount you have and the need of your usage.

Technology in Indian m-commerce sphere has increased and the impact is beyond calculations. Benefits and usage can not only be calculated in the number of installs or users but the accessibility and ease. Nothing can beat the offline benefits but this round of fight of recharges goes to online portals and apps.

This could be the next move of Online Shopping Portals

Shopping is not just randomly buying stuff, it is an experience. The experience is something which cannot be crunched in words but is a essence of presence at a particular moment. Experience is so great that it could change business models of big companies and can force companies to bring back app only model. The all catchy, smooth and engaging shopping portals we see today are designed to provide a good experience. This experience could be the key of the nest transition of the ecommerce companies in India. YepMe-Store

What we are talking about?

We are talking shopping outlets with of the brands like Flipkart, Snapdeal, Jabong, Shopclues etc. Amazon is the least expected portal for this concept. If you think that it is not possible then you are wrong as companies like Yepme, TataClick are already working in the same model. We are talking about offline shopping of products

The  problem and the solution

We are talking about the solution of worst possible online shopping problem. The problem is that in India, people like to see and feel things before they buy them. This is not a small issue, I as a shopper sometime hesitate before making any purchase online for products like clothing and apparels. However, if I can buy them under a banner of Flipkart while touching and getting a fell of it, it would be a go-go from my side. Therefore, the proper trap of Indian retail could be trapped in a proper way. The companies could assemble the power of both online and offline channels of sales.

Is it a contradiction of Ecommerce title?

No, anything which transact online is ecommerce. Haven’t we bought a Pizza Online? Aren’t there are outlets as well? The reason for this is simple; “serving the customer in a particular domain as the way they want it”. Flipkart and Snapdeal are likely to lead the whole scenario and will boast the concept.

Would there be any Deals & Offer?

Yes, infact more than now. The products under the brands like Flipkart & Snapdeal would be based on Market Basket Analysis and the deals and Offers would be based on that. Image source

Here is one of the most helpful review :

Well Worth the Wait

I grew tired of Android ages ago. I do not appreciate how difficult it was to get software updates, how the end-user has limited control over his/her device (eg. You can’t uninstall bloatware that come pre-loaded in your phone. You can’t move all apps to SD card. You can’t take screenshots). Sure, rooting is the way to go, but as an end-user, I never had the time nor the inclination to jailbreak my phone and risk bricking a 19k device. iPhones reminded me of cute poodles in Ritz lobbies. They look good, cost a bomb, and don’t really do much.

So I started following Microsoft closely. Their acquisition of Nokia meant they were very serious about their mobile business. They had India as one of their priority markets, considering how they started launching devices here before mature markets like the US and Europe. And I found in Windows, a sincere attempt to give the users complete control over their devices. Things I couldn’t do in Android without rooting my phone, were basic and built-in features in Windows. I watched as Microsoft launched the 535. The device was a bit too low range, so I waited for their next launch. 640 and 640 XL were announced, and I knew I was going to get the 640 XL. Sure enough, the device blew past all my expectations. * Great build quality. It’s got a premium feel to it. * Camera is out of this world. Zeiss is no joke. * Call quality, display quality, performance – all get 5 stars. * Battery is a mammoth. I can go 1.5 days on low usage, and 1 day with heavy use. Cons: * Accessories provided are basic. No USB cable, and the earphones are not the best. Anyway, I don’t think this is an issue, since manufacturers build the cost of accessories like premium earphones, SD card, USB cable, etc. into the net cost of the device. I prefer to pay just for the hand-set and chose my accessories as I please. Overall: I waited a long time for this device. I can tell you it was well worth the wait.

✔no usb cable in the box.
✔you have wall charger gives out 700 milliampere of power I guess.
✔And then you have pretty entry level earphones actually.Not the noise cancelling types you have your call control and mic but no volume control
and then the silver plated audio jack.

✔It has SnapDragon 200 Chipset which intern has a1.2Ghz Quadcore CPU , 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.Its probably not the powerful of devices but gets the job done,When it comes to day to day usage and slight gaming its still a winner.
I haven’t noticed any kind of heating yet.

✔You have the micro SD card for expansion.(128 i guess )
✔it does not support 4G

✔The 5inch HD screen is just about bright enough and i always have liked Lumia screens, they generally have very good viewing angles.And same goes with lumia 540 :extremely good viewing angle and the color renditions are also good enough
on black background you don’t see the pixelation much. But anyway the HD screen is actually good

✔Microsoft promises Windows 10

✔You have an 8MP back camera, image and video quality of the 540 Dual just about OK actually more than decent and better than most of android with 8mp.
✔You have good details under enough light.
✔Under low light the details are decent.Video recording part is great for the price point its been offered.
✔The wide angle selfie camera is surely one of the best .Low light color reproduction is slightly less.

✔The audio quality is better than most in the same price point.

✔Battery backup-you can get day full battery backup on average usage.
✔the battery is actually interchangeable with lumia 535.

✔Actually lumia 540 offers much more than seen in the specification.Its actually an overall package for the 10k price.There’s nothing which can be taken as cons in this handset.Its a great value for money.
✔It is for those who need premium support and decent performance with better pair of camera.
