There is no better way than celebrating your anniversary by doing something good and giving back to the society. Going by this Sony MIX, the Hindi music channel from Sony Pictures Networks India (SPN), announced ‘The Dhun Project’ to celebrate the 5-year anniversary of the channel in India.

‘The Dhun Project’ has been initiated, to pay tribute and recognise forgotten musicians of the industry and help them live with dignity and aims to give back to India’s rich musical heritage by raising funds to empower musicians and educate across levels. As a part of the initiative, the channel has appointed Roshan Ali Sahab as The Dhun Project Ambassador and has contributed Rs 10 lakh to better his life which had been affected due to paralysis.

The project is also leveraging the crowdsourcing platform Ketto.Org, to raise funds for Spic Macay to organise a series of events across the country that will enable heritage musicians to perform in schools and colleges and help them live with dignity

Datsun redi-GO : Capability of a crossover and convenience of a hatchback.


The latest entrant Datsun redi-GO is a car having the combination of ease of a hatchback and the ruggedness of a sports utility vehicle (SUV).

The Datsun redi-GO will be the third car from the Datsun after the Go and Go Plus which are currently on sale in India.

Datsun says that the redi-Go will be India’s first ‘Urban-Cross’, a car with the best features of a crossover and mixes them with the major attributes of an urban hatchback.

Datsun redi-GO is 3,430mm long. One of its USP is the best-in-class ground clearance of 185mm and different looks. It also gets LED daytime running lights, a first in the entry-level segment.

rediGO 6

The tall body structure gives a spacious, bright interior and high driving position that is beyond expectations for a car in this class.



The top-of-the-line redi-GO comes equipped with power steering, front power windows and an infotainment system compatible with CD, USB and AUX. On the safety front, Datsun redi-GO is equipped with PRO SAFE 7 crash protection shell and a brake with the shortest braking distance, all of which ensure a person’s safety.

rediGO 7

The Datsun redi-GO will be launched for the Indian market on June 7, 2016. It will take on the likes of the Maruti Alto 800, the Hyundai Eon, the Tata Nano and the Renault Kwid.




When was the last time you did something for the first time?

A simple question but a very interesting one – When was the last time you did something for the first time?

You start thinking from the very moment and go backwards trying to recall what you did recently for the first time.

I decided to ask this question from celebrities on twitter & facebook when they do a Q&A session. It was exciting for people to get replies from their favourite celebrities but for me it was exciting to get a reply on this particular question only. So i started waiting for the celebrities to do a Q&A session on twitter & facebook.

I will start with the King Of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan. It was a huge moment to get his response. Being a busy superstar of course @iamsrk did not get time to do something for the first time since long.


This had my twitter mentions and notifications buzzing for months.

@ParineetiChopra recent first timer was building her own house from scratch.

Parineeti Chopra

@KaranJohar gave a cheeky reply to it. He decided to keep it under sheets…err…his Mom was online.

Karan Johar

Ranganathan Madhavan @ActorMadhavan was online on facebook and conducted the Q&A session. did something really different. He grew organic vegetables…that too on the terrace. Nice!


Jaqueline Fernandez @Asli_Jacqueline did something really cool. She did sky diving. Something which i too want to do.

Jacquline Fernandez

Sonakshi Sinha @sonakshisinha was to the point and said she did something for the first time 3 days back though she didn’t mentioned what was it. Obviously the question was when, not what so she was to the point.

Sonakshi Sinha

Varun Dhawan @Varun_dvn went cycling down the hill. I guess he was shooting at some foreign location when he did this act.

Varun Dhawan

Sushant Singh Rajput played guitar. Something he did for the first time recently.


And last but not the least…the best of all. All hell broke down when this one happened. It was a video reply from none other than the Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar. My twitter mentions and notifications went berserk.

Sachin Tendulkar

This is what the God Of Cricket said – ” Omar, first of all let me tell you what an amazing question. You got me thinking actually. Aa…isn’t it the first time we are doing this. This interview is the first one. This interaction i have never done before and neither have you”. And the Master Blaster gives a big smile (the one which i captured here).

I got goosebumps and went numb for few seconds when i saw a mention from @sachin_rt and when i checked the video i went crazy.

The video link is here if you wish to check it out – https://www.instagram.com/p/BEkteoeEOnK/

I felt like i have attained twitter nirvana after this…lol!

There were a few more. Of course many others did not respond to the question. Until next time let’s wait for another celebrity to conduct a Q&A session and I get lucky enough to get a reply on “When was the last time you did something for the first time?”

Till then…keep exploring and do something for the first time 🙂
