Book Shopping @

Hey all,

I recently finished the Shiva Triology By Amish Tripathy and was left wanting more of Indian mythology.

Some digging brought me to The Krishna Key by Ashwin Sanghi. I has already read his first book, The Rozabal Line and found really good. I don't usually buy books, because a soft copy on my Kindle is good enough for me to read and very portable.

But just for a change I bought two books from Flipkart, The Krishna Key and Chanakya's Chant, both by Ashwin Sanghi.

I have already finished The Krishna Key (in just 2 days :)) The book is really gripping initially but the end didn't go down too well with me.

I am still reading Chanakya's Chant, the story is totally political, and understanding politics is something I am really bad at. Also it has a plethora of characters which also makes understanding the story a bit difficult for me.

The books I received were neatly packed, brand new and good quality. Impeccable Flipkart service as always and I got two cute bookmarks as well.

Here are the pics:

One package is of the novels and the other package was a Thomas book for my son, but I did not get a chance to take a picture of it, because he snatched it from me as soon as I opened the parcel and he won't allow anyone to touch it. He has been sleeping with it for the past 2 days and it has already started to look old.

External HDD Shopping @

Latest Update:
After a lot of searching on the internet and on the Seagate website I was finally able to register the complaint online. And the next step was to deliver the crashed HDD to the nearest collection center. I called one and they said that they will come to my home to collect it.
Nothing happened. I again called a couple of days later and then they said that they will not come to collect. I will have to send it to them. Since I don't exactly live in a city, it will become a full day program to go to center to drop off the HDD. So it kept waiting in my drawer. 2 months later I was finally able to drop it off at the center in Hyderabad. And 2 weeks later I got a refurbished HDD. Same type same model. No questions asked. I appreciate the service from Seagate. Only if the online complaint system would have been easier. Anyways, I had already purchased a WD HDD by then, So this one is a spare. I will take care not to put any important data in it. ;)


Latest Update:  My cute little hard disk crashed a couple of days ago  :(
I lost a lot of data but luckily all my family photographs have multiple backups.
Now I am struggling with Seagate ppl to get a replacement.

Hey all,

I was planning to buy an external Hard Disk to store my ever increasing data, mostly my pictures and videos. I was managing with my very old Seagate 320 GB HDD which has served me well for over 5 years.

I have been carrying this HDD in my bag everyday to work since last 5 years. And there have been many incidents when my bag tumbled down from the desk or it had been exposed to extreme heat and rain. But still my faithful HDD serves me everyday without even a single problem.

But my data cannot stop increasing and I was worried about a backup disk, so I bought a 1 TB Seagate HDD from Flipkart. I paid somewhere near 6000, a bit cheaper ones were also available at Flipkart but when it comes to data, nothing can be compared to Seagate.

Here's a picture of my new 1TB HDD sitting pretty ready to be used.
The package from Flipkart was done very well. Lots of protection for the cute little thing. This one is even sleeker than my old 320 GB HDD.

And the first thing I did was to format it to NTFS, it really increases the speed. This one comes with USB 3.0

Sorry for the shiny pic :)

My Nail Art

Hey all,

I've been collecting nail paints and seeing a lot of nail arts and I tried to do some of my own :)

 The first one is pretty basic. A transparent base coat and some peach colored glitter at the ends.

 I bought the glitter at a local store. An unlabeled bottle.

Here's another one. This one can turn out really good if you have a dotting tool, other wise the rounded end of a toothpick will do just fine. But in my case I used none and created a messy design. :) I love the color combination though.
