Lenovo launches Moto G4 and Moto G4 plus

After being acquired by Lenovo, Motorola brand name has been bid adieu and the new Lenovo Moto takes over the line up.
Under the new banner Lenovo launches Moto G4 and Moto G4 plus.
Lets look at what's in store this time around in the Moto G series
Overall the hardware has been bumped up significantly compared the Motorola G3 with a high-end snapdragon 617 chip in there with Qualcomm 6 series . It has a eight cortex a53 cores. The processing speed is 1.5 Ghz. Both models come with varied RAM sizes and memories starting from 2GB RAM and 16GB inbuilt memory (ROM) up to 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM.
Graphics are powered by Adreno 405 GPU.
The screen size has been increased by 0.5 inches to 5.5 inches overall. The real booster is that it's a 1080p HD screen compared to 720p in Moto G3. That's a big jump keeping in mind the competition growing in the mid segment of smartphones.
The camera is 13MP on Moto G4 and 16 MP on Moto G4 plus. Both of them feature a 5MP front snapper.
Fingerprint sensor:
This is an exclusive feature on Moto G4 plus only. There is a square earmarked for scanning finger prints. Mind you it is pretty quick taking less than a second to detect, scan and unlock the screen.
Both G4 and G4 plus have 3000 mah battery with fast charging port. The G4 plus comes with a turbo charger along with sales package.

Instead leaving the Motorola division in tantrums Lenovo has done a decent job by coming up with phones which have killer specifications for the mid segment.
The Moto G4 plus base model (16GB) is expected to retail at Rs.13500 with the 32 GB costing Rs.15000.

Four ways to avoid confused state of mind

Ever thought how do a person with a chaotic and tristate mind would be like.

Its when you see people calling somebody "absent minded" are the same people who suffer from this kind of mental state. I would not prefer calling it as illness as they as well are human beings and the moment we say ill, that person is thrown out of main stream society.

So what should a person going through confused state do to come out of it?

  • Well I would say stop doing whatever you are doing rite now. Concentrate on your body. Think of you mind as a garbage can and your job is to empty it. Mentally List down all the thoughts that just ran in your mind. Which are blocking you from arriving at a logical end. 
  • Now weight these in order of how severe they have an impact on your life. Once this done you should be having a shorter list.
  • Slowly close your eyes and meditate with utmost concentration on any object of your choice. Concentrate on your breathe for about 200 inhales and exhales. Now open your eyes. From those shortlisted items you should be finding a solution for each of them.
  • Do the above exercise everyday no matter what comes. In about 10 -15 days you should start seeing the benefits and your mind would slowly start De-cluttering.

wish you a happy and clean mind!

keep smiling

Tamil Nadu elections 2016

Today Tamil Nadu went to polls for the assembly elections 2016. Jayalalitha still looks strong at the outlook of it rite now. Election commission has restricted the media to not publish exit poll results before 6.30 PM today (16th May 2016).
As in every election in Tamil Nadu the power of goodies mattered a lot in this iteration as well.
But the flavour of goodies have changed this time around. With the primary parties focusing on schemes which are unheard of before. Some of them include free power, wifi in public places and loan waivers for farmers.
Overall it would be an interesting results day whenever its announced for Tamil Nadu this year


Football in India - UEFA EURO 2016

While casually browsing on the twitter. I was looking at the UEFA Euro 2016 feeds. Thoughts ran through the mind why doesn't football play a important role in the Indian sub-continent.

Yes, off late there has been some public private partnerships to host premier league tournaments in India as well but not of a big success. Also indian players did not get the required attention required.

Indian Super League constituted mostly of foreign nationals with sprinkles of Indian players. The basic DNA of Indian kids lies in the game of cricket where the kids grow in an environment which mostly idolizes every Indian cricket player and the kids are not exposed to any other kind of sports.

Being a predominantly middle class society it is hard to see a football champion team rising out of India anytime in the near future.

I wish all the football players and enthusiasts a best of luck for there next season in 2016.

Below is the UEFA EURO 2016 fixtures:


Exam results announced - 2016

After all the anxious moments for days the SSLC students from Karnataka can have a relieved moment.

Currently the site does not look like it is overloaded. Good job to the SSLC board for announcing the results hazzle free on there site. Which in general was a tedious job with painful hours for the students to wait for the results page to load on the site.

Looks like the girls have again topped in terms of pass percentage this year as well(2016) as it has been always in Karnataka.

The next result awaited is the PUC results which should be announced by end of may.

Along with the SSLC results in Karnataka there has another set of students waiting for there RBSE 12th grade results in Rajasthan.

All the best to all the students awaiting there results!


Three short steps to think positively

Today lets talk about thinking positively. Oh Wait!! Not only thinking positively but talking and understanding positively as well.
Its suggested thoughts change our actions. It's true in most cases but we deviate from thoughts during act due to various external momentary stimuli.

So how to practice to go in positive direction for all three (Thinking, talking and understanding)?
Its pretty simple, follow some of the basic listed below and you should be on your way to a more constructive behavior and hence enhanced lifestyle.
  1. When you think positively it influences your mind to do good things but why do we do the opposite? It is important to cling on to the precious positive thought long enough until you an action results due to that thought.
  2. When you say something try to match it with what you thought ( this is a very important step assuming your thoughts are sorted to think on positive direction). If your actions or words are not matching with your thoughts then stop there. Review and speak or act as you thought.
  3. The third aspect of positivism is understanding things positively. Due to lack of this positivism most of the relationships are in scatters and ruined. As I have already talked about perception and reality in my previous posts I would request you to refer the same here . But to give a small brief on the same the very interpretation of a feeling or observation makes a lot difference.
If the initial feeling or observation itself is born on a negative plot then you need to work on the 1st step listed in this article more. Once you learn the 1st step you will feel the difference in he way you approach everything in life.
In most cases these are the three steps that differentiates successful or happy and satisfied people with the rest of them.

happy positive thinking!
see yeah.
