Lucky 6 Game

Lucky 6 by Fat Cat is the newly launched lottery game played on mobile phones. It can be played on both Android and IOS system although it is not yet available either on Apple App Store or Android Play Store but down-loadable from Fat Cat's site for both the versions. It is a mobile game in which you have to register yourself with a valid email id , upon activation of account user creates ticket (maximum 3 per account ) by selecting six companies from a list of pre-selected brands. To win the jackpot of Rs 25 lakh the brands you select need to match the six best performing brands i.e brands having highest stock price on the game day and that Rank is determined by the stock exchange on which the stock trades. Selected teams should be among top six ranks for a player to win.

  • Associating a game with price money is totally a unique idea. You play and you win. Wow!
  • Keeps you interested in the ranks of your company.
  • A win - win situation by sharing it with your friends which increases your chances of winning and give them a chance to try their luck and win.
  • Sharing makes it a competition between friends which grows with each sharing.
  • It took a lot of time in activation of this game, half of my interest for it lost their.
  • It is not a kind of game which keep you hooked in order to reveal more levels or to achieve a target.
  • Their is no surety of winning, it all based on your luck.
  • From a common men's point of view to whom many of these companies are unknown it is useless to guess which company will gain or which will lose. 
  • Those investing in share market could find it interesting but what about others?
  • This game is on mobile platform and that to launched for Indians but to check your account you need to be online all the time which I think is a draw back for this game and will keep away many to try it.
  • Probability of finding Lucky 6 is very low.
There are more lows than high as far as my opinion is concerned and I strongly believe that this game would find it hard to get some admirers in India. Perhaps I wouldn't have tried it if it was not for the contest on Indiblogger where I have a chance of winning. It lacks a mass appeal required for a game to be successful. It is not addictive at all for a user to play it again and again because after raising three tickets your game is over and the wait for result starts which is boring.One would easily leave it after a couple of losses.

Childhood Chapters

Childhood Chapters

As we keep on unfolding the different chapters in life we realized the importance of stories listened and read in childhood. They have built our moral character and have taught many lessons we didn't notice then but observes their importance today when we are grown up. In childhood we learn everything by heart that's why impressions of them remain there forever in us. I too have listened and read many stories such as 'The Rabbit and The Tortoise' , The Sour Grapes, The Thirsty Crow, The Goose That Laid Golden Eggs, The Lion and The Mouse,etc and I am sure that all of you have also read or listened them in your childhood and by just mentioning their name I have recalled you the morals behind them.

Today T- Series have made these stories along with many nursery rhymes into beautiful animation videos. Children like cartoons, teaching with such animations would be a fun activity for the parents. The Tia and Tofu characters used in narrating stories are very likable and Tulsi Kumar's voice is soothing and lovable for children. Out of above mentioned stories The Thirsty Crow and The Goose That Laid Golden Eggs are stories with which I can associate few things of my childhood.

The Thirsty Crow or The Clever Crow teaches us that if you think and work hard nothing is impossible. When I was in class 2 ,while playing cricket our ball fell into a deep hole in our colony park made by iron rod used to erect tents for marriages or such occasions. When our small hands didn't reach the ball I put water in the hole and ball comes up all thanks to this story. Even today I never lose hope in any situation and tries to find the solution for the same.

The Goose That Laid Golden Eggs teaches us two things don't act in haste and don't be greedy. I remembered once when I was a kid I told this story to one of my friend who was keen to grab all chocolates from another friend who brought them to distribute on his birthday, but sadly he didn't listen. The birthday boy complained to the teacher and she told to distribute chocolates among the class except to him who tried to snatch them. Although he gave one to him after the class. Now I think it is the moral attached to this story which made me retold this when I saw someone acting greedy. I told such story to my nephews and nieces and they listened them with full attention. I hope they will also remember them when required.

I am thinking to show these videos to them now because visual images stays longer in our minds and leaves stronger impressions than verbal images.

Toilet Tragedy

Toilet Tragedy 

image source is Indiblogger campaign page.

India has so many big problems like rape,corruption,inflation,terrorism,etc which remained in the eyes of media that other problems which perhaps not provide high TRPs but are important enough to affect the millions in our country. The problem of open defecating is as serious as any other problem in our country and it is sad that few are worried for this Toilet Tragedy.

Millions of our countrymen compromise their dignity due to lack of toilets and sanitation facilities. This problem is intense in villages as compare to cities because in cities their are government provided mobile toilets but in villages there are no such options but to defecate in open which leads to health problems like diarrhea,cholera,typhoid,etc arising from unhygienic surroundings. The infants and children are more prone to such infectious diseases and the most of them died due to such illness before reaching the age of five. The infant and child mortality rate in India is 60/1000 which means 60 children died out of 1000 before reaching the age of five and in almost every case the reason behind these deaths are one these diseases. If we compare it to our birth rate which is 20/1000 we can see how horrific is this problem. We are loosing our children at three times the rate of their birth.

Apart from the health issues raised by open defecating , the safety of women and girls is another subject of concern. Imagine woman or girl in your house going to defecate in open at night and that too in village environment where night falls early than in cities and all streets were deserted as soon as sun sets. Open fields or forests areas where open defecation is generally happen are full of dangerous insects and reptiles , moreover mischievous and anti-social elements look such instances as a chance to execute their heinous desires. A study shows that the most victims of rape in rural areas are those women and girls who went for defecating in open. This shows how dangerous open defecating is to our society.But still millions of girls and women compromise their life and dignity due to helplessness of not being accessible to toilets

There is the time we all come together to spread awareness about this issue and come forward to make India open defecating free country. Domex, HUL's flagship sanitation brand is working in this field since November 2013 by running Domex Toilet Academy (DTA) which helps in providing proper sanitation facilities and imparts knowledge of cleanliness. ' Toilet for Babli' program is their latest initiative in providing toilets to villages and making them open defecation free. You can also bring about the change in the lives of millions of kids, thereby showing your support for the Domex Initiative. All you need to do is “click” on the “Contribute Tab” on and Domex will contribute Rs.5 on your behalf to eradicate open defecation, thereby helping kids like Babli live a dignified life. 

I think this is a great initiative and we can do a lot by just a mouse click. This small step would be a big leap for health and safety of millions of kids like Babli.

Let Children Be Children

Let Children Be Children

14th November is the birthday of India's first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru which is celebrated as children's day in India due to his love and fondness to children. He always interacted with them and they used to call him 'Chacha Nehru' (Uncle Nehru). This year we are celebrating his 125th birth anniversary so I decided to raise some issues related to children.

The children are the most important part of our society as they are the future of the country. What we will give them today they will return to us in the future. So if we want a better society, a better state , a better nation and a better world we must take the best care of our children. Their proper growth is crucial for the proper growth of the society and this is possible only when we let children be themselves and not try to make them someone else.

Today in order to get higher TRP's reality shows compel children to behave like adults, they are forced to dance and talk like grown ups, they make them wear vulgar dresses and so on. Similarly some organisations trained them to kill , they filled hatred in they minds and believe me hatred will only make way for more hatred. Such malignant treatment of children is very dangerous. Many children work due to poor financial conditions of their family and in developing country like India we have millions of children in this condition. Their are laws to prevent them but there implementation is almost negligible. When poverty is not giving them proper food how we expect them to grow to their full potential and discover their inner strengths. They are not voters so why concern about their problems. But it is sad to say we elders have also not raised children problems like increasing burden of education,proper facilities in school,problem of malnutrition ,etc.

For a better tomorrow we should hear to their silent yearnings to let them be themselves. Let them be innocent children learning different things as they progresses in life and we playing the role of their guides telling them about the good and the bad. And for the underprivileged children we should help them as much as possible. There is an organisation Akshaya Patra which is bringing such children to schools by helping in providing meals in schools.

I hope a children's day where every child would be happy is near. I have made a video dedicated to all children using a song from Hindi movie Taare Zamin Par ( Like Stars on earth) starring Aamir Khan and Darshil Safary in lead roles
