Tamaira Ghati road accident destroyed the light of my life

To quote Roosevelt “Light has gone out of my life”

Accident in Bundu killed my loving mom and dad. Multiple fatal accidents has been going on for years in this 43 km stretch between Bundu and Tamaira in Ranchi-Jamshedpur, Nh-33. No help was provided by passerby or the government, they were finally taken out of the car after 3.5 hours. Another accident on the same day killed mom and her 7 year old daughter. Shame on BJP government for not taking any action and being part of this killing. 100s have died in this stretch of road in just last 2 years with no action being taken.

It’s a shame we cannot hold this government responsible and sue them for culpable homicide.

Reliance’s Jio

The launch of Reliance Jio has taken India by a storm.It is now open to all the users who can sign-up and get a SIM card with free service till December.Great things have been heard about Jio’s good internet providing services and that people have already started switching to jionet from airtel,vodafone etc.Jio is now offering free unlimited data, free voice and video-calling for all the users who are getting the sim.
You can also access free wi fi from public hotspots in your area but for this you have to get the jionet app from the playstore or the app store.After signing up and setting up your profile,you can then see the nearest places from your house that has these public hotspots but the catch it that usage of Jio WiFi is limited to one device at a time meaning you cannot connect your laptop and your phone at the same time but i guess this doesnt matter as long as you are getting free wi fi for free.Reliance has already implied that they plan to add more of these WiFi hotspots all across India
The official use of the Jio servies will start from January,after the trial service.Till then get jio and enjoy the free services.


Pokemon go has been the topic of everyone’s discussion for quite some time now.Its basically everywhere..on blogs,the news,the trending topic on the social networking sites.So it makes sense to have an article on pokemon go hacks so you can ‘catch it all’ least someday.

1.You can have pikachu as your first pokemon

Most of the people dont know that there is an option to have pikachu as your first pokemon instead of the obvious selection Charmander, Bulbasaur, and Squirtle in the beginning of the game. You can do that by constantly ignoring these pokemon and walking away from them until they respawn again and again and eventually you will get to see pikachu with them.

2.Where to find more pokemon
The pokemons are made to be found in areas that are extremely populated. So you will have a better chance of finding ‘them all’ in tourist attractions,malls or parks. Its even better if you already live in a very populated city.

3.Missed a pokemon?
So with your terrible aiming skills you somehow missed a pokemon and that too a valuable one. According to IGN you can get the missed pokemon back.All you have to do it just tap the white ball while its still visible on the ground and voilà.Though it is being said that this is a glitch and doesnt work every time but still worth a try.

4.Free pokecoins from google opinion rewards
All you have to do it get google opinion reward and complete some surveys and stuff and get free pokecoins and save your actual money. The catch is that this is only specific for the android users.

Iphone 7 in September

Iphone 7 will be out in September like every year.There is no official news about its features and the way it is suppose to look but rumors suggest that the iphone 7 wont be much different than the 6s in terms of the features but will be looking different than the 6s.

Three versions
Unlike before,the iphone 7 wont be coming in a 16gb version.It will be starting from 32gb and expanding upto 256gb.It is also being said that the famous space grey iphone will be discontinued and a space black colour will be introduced instead of that.

Dual camera
The leaked images of the phone suggests the dual camera set up in the iphone 7 plus. The dual camera setup changes the quality of the pictures produced, from better low-light performance to improved colour accuracy and faster autofocus.

No headphone jack
To make the phone look slimmer,the 3.5mm headphone jack will be removed and the lightning powered earpods will be accompanied with it. The lightning port will also provide a much better sound quality.

Other features
There will also be an upgraded processor and redesigned antenna bands.The iphone 7 will also have 4 speakers like the ipad pro on the top and the bottom.The RAM size will be increased to 3gb.

Hopefully the iphone 7 will live upto the hype it has created.
