Shopping made easy

#MyClicks
The fast paced city, Mumbai. The city of dreams, opportunity, love and a life. But it also brings along long working hours and if not that then long traveling hours definitely.
With such hectic and busy schedule people although are able to bring back do waqt ki roti but time for family is hardly achieved. Even if that's achieved than going out on shopping is a luxury.

Thanks to e-commerce sector that problem is solved with a click. I am out of house for approx 14 to 15 hours which includes work and travel and sometimes work demands working weekends too. Being an elder sister I of course ought to bring my kiddy brother something or the other. It’s not a compulsion but a feel good factor when my bro asks me for something or if I wanna buy him that football or sneakers or jersey, that puzzle game or a soft fluffy football alag se. The list is long, occasions are many but time is way less to spend on shopping.

The Book
Aditya Kapoor is a banker turned author and a bestseller. He is a literary gem and is living a balanced yet a starry personal and a professional life. Anything and everything he touches turns into gold. He has everything a man can dream of, a loving family which has a beautiful wife 'Maya' and a sweet kid.
Then there is Shreya Kaushik, a student at IIM Bangalore who is beautiful, young and ambitious. She is instantly expressive about the ramblings of her mind and loves to chase her dreams, quite bold and straight forward. Currently she wants to be a bestselling author and is quite obsessed with that dream. She is best at what she does, one of the top authors but now she wants to be the bestselling one.
One fine day, Aditya's and Shreya's worlds come together. Shreya wants Aditya to make her the best selling author. What happens next is for you to find out. Can one person love two people at a given point in time? Can one wisely make a choice between blind passion and ambition? Is it possible to trust someone again after betrayal. Is it still love when you betray someone?

Dwarka: Gateway to Heaven

The Dwarka Railway Station
Dwarka which is believed to have been the first capital of Gujarat, literally means “gateway to heaven”. It is the nagri of Krishna where he migrated from Mathura post Mahabharata with his clan of yadavas.


It’s been believed that actual Dwarka was made of gold and is submerged in sea. Myths apart this place is really surreal. At the mouth of Gulf of Kutch, Dwarka has a subtropical desert and hot climate. 



I recently had the privilege to visit this magical place which is full of stories, mysteries and sand. Yes, sand. This cursed pilgrimage gets water from 20km away through pipelines. People told us that even from wells they get salt water.



My Abode



The Dwarika Hotel

We reached Dwarka late evening and checked in The Dwarika Hotel which I had pre-booked, 3 bedded super deluxe room. The room was quite spacious with all amenities.


Pros: The hotel location is perfect. It is on the highway, 2 km from dwarka railway station and 1 km from the dwarkadheesh temple. The prices (tariff and food price) are competitive. Its restaurant Food is good too. 

Cons: The only negative point was the outside noise was coming inside, walls need to be little more sound proof considering hotel's standard. The construction noise from behind our room was disturbing. Overall stay was cool. Nonetheless, it’s a mid-range hotel. The staff is cooperative but little slow.
