How many times have you missed an episode of your favourite TV show? For most people the answer would be “most of the time”. In this fast paced world, we are so hard pressed for time with our various responsibilities, commitments and work that we most often have to sacrifice our favourite TV shows and lament later about the missed episodes.

Being a blogger who blogs on food, I am hooked to cookery shows on TV and look out for new ingredients, ideas and methods to improve my cooking and dish out new and interesting recipes in my kitchen. I also watch a couple of TV soaps regularly.And when I am just ready to switch on the TV, a knock on the door or a telephone call or some other interference make me miss my favourite cookery show or a serial of my interest.

To make things worse, my one and half year old daughter and husband are always ready to grab the remote and keep me away from watching my shows. My husband likes watching news or Discovery channel and my daughter her favourite cartoon. So there is a great demand for the remote at home as everyone wishes to watch their favourite shows. In the end you know who wins as you can't fight with a kid for the remote and hence my daughter gets the last laugh.

So I and my husband shifted to watching our favourite videos on YouTube using our Smart phones.But videos took long to stream or download, used to buffer sometimes and had ads that had to be skipped. It also used up plenty of broadband data and we started getting alarming mobile bills.

I used to think "why not someone make something that would help me watch my favourite show anytime anywhere on my phone without making a hole in my husband's pocket."

And when I saw this ad on TV, I simply started jumping with joy...

TATA Sky has launched a Wi-Fi enabled set top box and digital video recorder which can record and push transfer our recorded content to our smart phone or tablet directly. So we can watch the recorded shows at leisure offline using the Tata sky app in our Smart phones or Tablets.

With the TATA Sky + transfer box, we no longer have to worry about missing our favourite TV shows. With this I can watch my favourite shows while my baby is watching her cartoon. I can also record movies and watch it at leisure and play cookery shows while cooking in the kitchen. When my daughter gets bored while travelling, I can play a recorded cartoon show and keep her in good spirits. My husband too can watch his favourite shows from Discovery and Animal planet or Cricket and Football matches while travelling to work.

In total the TATA Sky transfer box is a great boon for families fighting for the remote as it makes shows easily transferable and watchable for everyone anytime and anywhere.

“ The dream is not that you see in sleep, dream is which does not let you sleep ” – Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. How true and how deep is this quote from the great scientist and former president of India, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. We all dream while we are asleep but the real dream – the dream which you wish to fulfill – the dream in which you have set your hearts on – will not “let you sleep”. When I was a kid, whenever someone asked me as to what I wish to become, I would say “I wish to become a doctor”. As I grew up, my interests and goals started to differ, from doctor, it shifted to becoming an Engineer or a teacher.  After completing school, I was really confused as to what I really wished to become. My father and teachers at school suggested that I take up a degree course and go on to do masters. This would help me in taking up teaching as a profession. I was academically good but shy and timid. I would get goose bumbs even on standing in front of my own class


Stories are an integral part of my life. I often tell my daughter stories during meal times to keep her glued to her seat. The idea of story telling came as she used to run here and there while eating making me run behind her every time to feed her a spoon of food. Thus feeding her had become a difficult task for me and finally I decided to put an end to it by engaging her with small stories. The idea clicked and she started asking me to tell her stories every time during her meals. Every day objects, things that she saw became subject of my story and in this way through stories, I started teaching her new things and passing information to her about birds, animals, vegetables, etc making meal times playful and interesting. This took away a huge burden from my shoulders as she would get engrossed with the stories and eat without much fuss. I also started buying educational toys and looking for new objects and things in my home to keep her occupied. The objects and cr


The world in which we live today has evolved and several changes have taken place. Earlier men used to go to work and women would stay indoors and do household works. At that time to some extent the work was equally divided between men and women. But in these modern times, woman too have become independent and have joined the workforce. Many men too are happy with this change and have welcomed it with open arms. But one thing that has not changed is their thinking. While they are happy to see woman as an independent and earning member, they fail to understand that the responsibility and workload on woman has now doubled. They not only have to look after their office work but also household work. Isn't it then the responsibility of the men to take active part in doing household chores so that the work gets balanced between the two.   A recent survey conducted by third party for Ariel has found that most households feel that doing household chores especially laundry is a woman&#
