If you are a teacher, a lawyer, a homemaker, a designer, a student or even a blogger then this name is not new to you Quikr the largest online buying,selling and renting platform in India catering almost all major cities like Delhi, Bhopal, Mumbai, Ahmedabad,etc. Quikr provides the local community with a platform to help them buy, sell, rent and find something and address needs across many categories. These categories numbering over 12 and sub-categories over 140 range from Mobiles, real estate, cars, services, jobs, entertainment, furniture, electronics etc.

If you haven't used it till now this is because of the fear of interference in your privacy . The buyers could call you at times you were busy in school,office, home or with your friends or you skeptical that making your mobile number or email id public would make you vulnerable to some mischievous elements and if you are a girl then your hesitations are not wrong looking at the increasing cases of mobile stalkers and abusers. I too was hesitant for such reasons. But Quikr in its endeavor to provide quality service with safety to its users have introduced a feature Quikr NXT.

Quikr Nxt, is a feature which allows users to chat using the website or mobile app. This means users can choose to make a listing private, which hides their email ID and phone number on the site thus making interacting with prospectus buyers and sellers convenient without revealing our identity which means No Fikar Chat Quikr. I have already mentioned why I would prefer chat mode over a phone call by outlining discomforts of a phone call. Following points would make it clearer: 

  • Chat will keep our number private which would be helpful in safeguarding our privacy which in turn would be helpful in prevention from anti-social elements.
  • With chat we can contact our buyer and seller with our convenience without compromising our precious time meant for other works of family and business. Moreover this feature would allow us to keep track of our chats like other messenger services we are using on our mobile devices.
  •  If there is requirement for more details to buyer than seller could send more images of product making it much more easier to select the desired product.
Chat feature is a win-win situation for both the buyer and seller without infringing any body's privacy,time and convenience. Choosing the seller or buyer of our choice without phone calls would also ensure that we are not hurting anybody by declining their offer or not buying or selling things to them.It happens sometime that buyer tries to contact us after first phone conversation at a time when we would have purchased or sold that product from/to someone else due to price difference. Chat feature would help us from the discomfort of saying no to someone.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway.

These substances however are not harmful a…

(Inter - Religion marriage still taboo among Indians ? What is your take on it .)

We as Indians are still confused for our cultural identity i.e who we are as residents of this country. Hindu,Hindustani,Indian,Bharatiya,Hindi or something else. When there is so much struggle in conveying our identity then how people who consider even inter-caste marriages as taboo would accept Inter - Religion marriages. We are all united under our constitution which make all of us equal and grants freedom to follow any religion. An adult individual thus holds the freedom to choose his or her partner regardless to any religion.The constitution also declares India as Bharat or India and not as Hindustan which denotes its secular identity not related to a particular religion. How a Chris…

Gorakhpur Tragedy

Gorakhpur Tragedy
Amid increase crime report in UP where after swearing in of Yogi Adityanath as chief minister cases of murders, kidnapping, dacoities, rape, etc has increased many folds the fresh news came of the negligence in government hospital. At least 60 children have died over five days at the state-run Baba Raghav Das Medical College hospital in Gorakhpur.  The deaths are being blamed on infections and possible disruption of oxygen supply in the pediatric ward. 


The administration has rejected the claims of shortage of Oxygen as reason for deaths but the increase supply of Oxygen cylinders in the morning after the news broke out indicating otherwise. Isn’t it the negligence of the government hospital administration, health minister and Chief minister? Incidentally Gorakhpur was Yogi Adityanath’s Lok Sabha constituency. No compensation can fill the void of death of innocent children but there must be a time bound probe of the reasons behind the death and culprits must be puni…
