A bolder proposal :)

Soon it will be that time of the year again. Those seven days of pure love. Those seven days of thinking things over and choosing the best surprises for the love of your life. The Valentine's week.

Challenging your mind to get something creative that would make her go "aww". Selecting her favorite flowers, selecting the best gifts, the over rated and over budget imported chocolates.

Truth be told, I've never done any of these things EVER !!. Rather I've always thought these to be too cheesy and gimmicky. But then again I have never felt the way for anyone that I feel for her now. Lets not give her a name and mention 'her' as 'her' ;)

So today when I was browsing the World Wide Web I came across this super fun website from the Close up What they have planned for this Valentine's is a bold way to propose your crush. You spin the close up tube and whatever the dare comes you have to do that in order to win some amazing prizes and of course win the love of your crush.

Inspired by the idea I tried my luck and got a amazing dare to put up a special message in glow in the dark paint.

So to plan things further I am thinking of taking help of a few of my friends, her mom (who by the way is a sweetheart) and planning to propose her on the Valentine's day, as cheesy as it may sound ;)

What I am planning is to paint her room in a pink glow in the dark color (Pink being the favorite color of her and every other girl on the planet ) with my proposal to her.  Going into the details, I plan on wooing her everyday of the Valentine's week just like every other guy would do and then with the final proposal that would probably sweep her off her feet.
Or on the contrary I could act normal the whole week and let this amazing gesture be a surprise for her. Do tell which one sounds better to you ?

Knowing her a bit makes me think that this would definitely be a relationship starter for us as she loves surprises and doing such a romantic act for her would definitely give me some brownie points on the romantic front.
To end up the proposal I would get down on one knee and do the routine ;) I know this sounds a bit monotonous and common but this would be a first time for me. Also I think she would appreciate all the gestures knowing how much I hate these kind of things :)

I hope all goes well and this does not blow up in my face, coz she might get a bit angry when she sees her room has been spoilt with all that glow in the dark paint. And given my handwriting I am definitely looking for a calligrapher to do all the writing part ;)

Cheers !! Hope you too have an amazing and eventful Valentine's day.

Relocate Quikr !!

Heyy Guys,


The post is about my experience relocating to Bangalore and how Quikr helped my relocating seem like a no worry affair.. The story is amazing and hands down quikr became a lifesaver and my favorite website.

It was after completing my Chartered accountancy course that I had no idea what to do further in my life. I knew I was interested in going for a job but what kind of job I did not know. I started exploring my interests and soon found out that I would not be into a regular boring accounting department job and cut that off the list.

I have had an infatuation for Bangalore since the last time I visited it with family, the city's so serene and paced that it pumps up your spirit and clears your mind. So that's how I decided that I would be moving to Bangalore.

Now the main problem was what would I do after moving to Bangalore, therefore I started out looking for jobs for a CA there. First went in for CA institute website and enrolled for campus placement at Bangalore, then signed in my LinkedIN account and shortlisted a few interesting jobs. All the while I was doing this I got a sense of limited opportunities so I tried to look deeper into the World Wide Web and came across

I had known Quikr to a B2C website where in you could just sell things and stuff but to my surprise you can do a lot more than that. There is a separate "Jobs" section in there and believe me it is a life saver. As soon as I punched in my requirements, the screen was filled with millions of opportunities and I thought to myself that this is my kind of a scene.  
Soon I applied in 4 companies that suited best of my reuqiremnts and got a call back within a day from one of those. I had not been expecting such a fast turn around but it did happen and I was glad. Then I had an interview over the telephone. It went well and then the HR guys said that they’d have a final decision in a few days. 

I had a feeling that I would get into the company since the interview went as expected. And following my intuition I got an email 2 days later saying that I had been selected and would have to join from next week. 

Now the real problem was shifting from Jaipur to Bangalore in 5 days and getting settled in a whole new city. I was worried to my death and decided that I would take help of my new friend
I packed my necessary stuff and left for Bangalore 3 days after the call.
I scouted out a place for renting first of all on Quikr and again to the rescue I was living in a decent apartment in 2 days after moving to Bangalore. 

So the saga continued and as it turned out I had set up my new rented apartment with all the necessities - AC, fridge, washing machine, a good mattress, a solid sturdy cupboard and all the things I can imagine freshly and amazingly from the sellers on Quikr.

It has been like a dream with things happening so fast but I really have quikr to thank to. 

PS - Relocate quikr with :)
