While trip to Burhanpur is on hold, looking forward to a 12-hour stay in Mumbai.
This time again, we visited Starkey, a friend dropped out being out of Nagpur, another two joined and we also took our kids with us to enjoy the evening. We left again at 3pm and left Starkey at 6. It rained heavily while we were on the highway, which city showed no signs of rains at all. Interesting trip once again.
Next ? May be after monsoon now.
The trip to Burhanpur has been postponed.. Very soon will be there, once again, Inshallah.
Once again, after a long time, friends visited Starkey Resort on Amravati Road, about 6 years later. Nothing has changed, even the charges are same.
Looking forward to go there again and again and again and …..
The best joke was: 700 ke snacks, 600 ka khana.
A great party organized by Friends in my honor. We were total 9, 2 could not make it. We left at 9.30pm and reached home by 1am. A nice quiet place to go on Umred Road.
After an online booking at Ginger hotel through Makemytrip.com, when I called up in morning to confirm the booking, there was an confusion and they refused that they have any booking, which they sorted out in an hour or two later and called back to confirm it.
The address written on website needs to be edited to include a more prominent place, like Near Police Station, which is always easily searchable rather than any club or community hall.
The staff was courteous and the wifi password came directly on the mobile as an sms without any need to ask for it. Cozy rooms, nice amenities provided.
The hotel needs to provide food at night for those coming late — having already told we shall be late. We had to travel to “Twenty four seven” about 4-5 kms by auto in the night at midnight to get some food to eat.
Overall a good experience.
In Delhi, one of the colleague suggested we eat at Barbeque Nation instead of going to Chandni Chowk and having our dinner there. We all agreed, as it was just besides our hotel also and we would save on time travelling to and fro.
Loved the theme, concept, food at Barbeque Nation. Its basically eat-all-you-can in Barbeque offers provided by them. Unlimited Starters, followed by main course and sweets and the most important and the best part was having a live charcoals placed on our table to keep the starters hot!!!
Had a great weekend… which began with a flight to New Delhi for business works. Then went to Indore, then to Ujjain, Shajahpur, Indore again as there was a accident on the ghat on Indore Burhanpur road and then again to Burhanpur reaching Monday morning to Nagpur.
The journey began with me going to Delhi for an expo. From there I went to Indore and joined my family and friends in Ujjain. From there we went ahead to Shajapur and left evening to Burhanpur.
On the way there was an accident on the ghat just about 1.5 kms to 2 kms down in the evening. The traffic got jammed as the vehicle was not removed or even moved out of the road till late evening so we decided to go to Indore for night stay. We were lucky to get an cheap accommodation at Musafirkhana in Siyaganj Indore. Anyways we left in morning for Burhanpur. The vehicle was still left there on the road, but the traffic had started moving with one vehicle at a time on that patch of the road. We stayed for the day in Burhanpur and left for Nagpur in the night and reached home early morning.
A well organized travel, which was cost effective also.
A hectic weekend is planned.
New Delhi, Ujjain, Shajapur, Burhanpur and then back to home. And yes, a hop to Indore too.
The following is a guest post, script written by Mr Himanshu Agarwal. The views expressed are his own.
Freecultr vs. Fashionara – Which Is Better And Why?
There are various advantages of buying from online stores. Apart from the comfort of shopping from home, online stores provide you with wide range of options and attractive discounts. With internet bringing global business to local areas, it is essential for online stores to offer international standard for local prices. Hence, in the online business, to attract viewers, online stores put in their best efforts at performance to outshine each other. Where Freecultr and Fashionara are concerned, we need to see who outperforms other.
Both Freecultr and Fashionara entered online business in the year 2011. While Freecultr deals with fashion apparels, accessories and footwear for women and men, Fashionara offers apparels, accessories and footwear for kids, women and men.
Kids Apparels – Fashionara Targets Entire Families
Fashionara’s collections include apparels and footwear for children as well and hence it addresses the needs of entire family under one roof. As Freecultr does not have collections for children, Fashionara gets past Freecultr in the first round with convincing victory.
Range Of Collections – Fashionara Excels
Compared to Freecultr, Fashionara has a wide range of collections in all categories. Apart from the numbers in categories, it could be said that Fashionara has more classifications of products as well. Moreover, it offers lingerie for women, which is not found in Freecultr. When you search for your needs, you would naturally want to have all your needs purchased in one go. Even if you are not shopping outside, where it gets tiresome to reach multiple stores for different needs, having everything in one online store makes it easy as you need to fill in the essential details only once.
Competitive Prices – Freecultr Competes Well
With regard to prices, Freecultr offers various products for lesser price. Though it does not have a wide a collection as Fashionara has, its products are priced low. However, it does not offer the same quality for low price. It has products that are priced low and this would benefit wide audience who are looking to spend moderate amount on purchases. However, both the online stores aim to attract customers by offering Freecultr coupons and Fashionara coupons. Although, the coupons offered by Freecultr are more attractive than the coupons offered by Fashionara; the pricing of Fashionara does the work for its customers here. Using these coupons would enable customers to enjoy great discounts.
Delivery Schedule – None Rings The Bell On Time
As far as delivery is concerned, both the stores share the same platform. There are unfavorable reviews about both the online stores with regard to delay in delivery. Though Fashionara has a wide range of collections, some opine that certain products, which show on stock while ordering, go out of stock during delivery causing delayed delivery. This serious matter has to be addressed by the company as it would lose its credibility eventually.
Customer Service – No One At The Counter
Both the online stores lack commitment here. There are many complaints about their not responding to enquiries on time with regard to refund and delay in delivery. Though the online stores sound that they are easy on return of goods, in reality, it seems the opposite.
Final Verdict Adjourned
In comparison, it may seem that Fashionara has quite a few advantages over Freecultr. However, these aspects are not sufficient to pass the verdict in favor of Fashionara. They do have kids’ collections, which are not found in Freecultr, but the collections for kids need improvement and inclusion so that it could be called versatile. In range of collections, of course Fashionara does well in men and women section. Still, it has been complained about this site about non-availability of products after ordering. Hence, it has to look into this area. For beginners, both the stores could be said to have started well. They both have areas to improve and they both need to improve on their efficiency in customer service. As far as user experience and product classifications are concerned, both the sites have done well. Hence, let us give them some time to get better and stronger.
