Store Review: Reliance Digital, Mulund, Mumbai

Kind of shopaholic I am, this IndiStuff gave me another chance to spend some time roaming and then blogging about. This time the task was to visit a Reliance Digital Store of our choice - view it and then review it. I chose the one at Mulund, reason simply it’s the closest (except the Vashi one – which wasn’t on the list) from my place.

Venue:                Reliance Digital, R Mall, Mulund West
Time:                  Saturday Evening 5:30 PM
Reception:        Received with a very amiable Namaskar by a staff in light blue at main gate.

4Sq Proof that I was there :P
The Store:
This store is very aptly located quite in the mid of the town at one of the most famous malls of suburbs. So, must say it is well connected with the customers it strives for.
As I told we were very warmly received at the Gate. Staff weren’t that aware about the Bloggers’ visit to the place (in fact, one even tried to learn why so many ‘Indibloggers’ were there). Roaming around to meet the Manager to report him, we met Nidhi, who again received us warmly asking our details, striking off our names from her list, and then taking our feedback on her blackberry – all with a smile. We requested her to be left alone roaming around the store and taking snaps.

The store is more or less like the other Branded electronic stores I have been to, including Reliance Digital and others too. But yes, staff density is relatively higher. There were different sections dedicated to Memory cards, Mobile Cases to Mobiles, portable speakers to home theatre systems, LCD to Smart TVs, P&S to DSLRs, and then a large section dealing with home appliances. What I really loved was a room dedicated for Home Theatre System. 

Reliance Gift Card
I had a Reliance Gift Card that I wanted to encash on this auspicious day (actually I hate window-shopping, so this card gave me a reason to visit the store). My first choice was a 32GB MicroSD Class 10 card, but I didn’t find the price I was looking for. So, I thought to check out some portable speakers. Choices were Sony, iBall and ReConnect-a home brew brand. The first guy we met wasn’t that comfortable with stuff, but then came another guy Kamlesh – a speaker guru. He gave us detailed demo of all the choices and also introduced us to that Home Theatre Engagement Zone. Finally for the price and features I zeroed upon the ReConnect Bluetooth Receiver. Not much crowd, we went through a hassle free transaction at Counter with payment in parts by Gift and Credit cards. Some more time, devouring 3D Smart TVs, Games corner and we planned to leave the store. As told earlier, we searched for Nidhi but she had already left. Another lady at Customer Relations enquired about our experience and we called it a day.

Reliance Digital has got a semi-active online front also at Stuffs are listed there with prices but aren't yet available to shop online.

Concluding, I liked the store. Pricing is competitive, staff friendly and generally knowledgeable, ambiance pretty, options not that high but well over to be called as moderate. Staff wasn’t prepared about Bloggers, though they should have been told – but I guess it’s good to act like a customer to them rather a Critic blogger; that gives a rather good opportunity to evaluate something/someone. At least that way we know they are not acting friendly. Also the other side of coin is that the ignorance somewhere shows that they weren’t well prepared for this Event as such, missing the promised GoodieBag (much criticized on most of the blogs) is one such thing to take the clue.

I wrote this post for Indiblogger-Reliance Digital Experience Event. I feel I should declare this BIG DISCLAIMER that I work for Reliance Industries as a Geologist, and though we (Petroleum guys) are no way related to Reliance Digital (Retail guys), we share same huge IT Park, work in different buildings and sometimes play football together at Father Agnel’s ground. Views that I expressed above may look biased now, but are Honest and un-influenced. By the way, I sometimes feel I am paid by Indiblogger for blogging (at least for not procrastinating).

Riders of the Nation of a Billion - Dimensions and Horizons

Incidentally I wrote a post of my tranformation from just around the corner corporate junkie into a Rider (for sure, still gradually) few days ago. Now, here are the Indibloggers with a Contest for the Bikers of the Nation with Castrol guys .  Evolving Biker Code of the Nation  When you look at the scenario of Biking in a general sense, you would be attracted by the road-rowdies and rookies who ride to spread nuisance and are mostly acknowledged for their deeds by the newspaper. Hooligans may be the right word. But, once you get involved with the passion, you would be able to see how the passion of Biking, or rather Riding, is evolving in the country where 2-wheelers over-power 4-wheelers by scores of galactic height, but have never earned respect on highways just coz they are the smallest-speeding machine there! I would try to let you through the Indian Riders tale, so that you  be able to appreciate how the riders of the Country are working, though in a segregative way

An evening in the Chilika Lake

( This post has been published in TheViewspaper as The Paradise called Chilika ) This year seems to be much more happening than I expected. I realized it when I got an invitation from a senior colleague to attend his marriage at Bhubaneshwar. Hidden was another invitation to revisit the Puri- beach and also the Chilika Lake. I hadn’t still come out of the hangover of my pan-India ride , when the date to fly to the City of Temples knocked at doors. Packing the very morning of departure with least pairs of casuals and 3sets of party wears, I joined Kaustav and Abhimanyu bhaiya on our tour de Chilika and Puri, also the Odiya Wedding. Chilika Lake is the largest coastal lagoon in India and the second largest in World. It is an essentially shallow brackish water lagoon on the east coast, spread over the districts of Puri, Khurda and Ganjam of Odisa state. The lake, popularly known as Chilka, was designated the first Indian Wetland of International importance under the Ramsar

...not just Right, it's My time to visit Melbourne NOW!

‘ Sir, wake up, it’s Victoria ’ some sort of voice-management, of course with due courtesy, and it banged on my ears again ‘ Sir? It’s Victoria, didn’t you want to get down here… ’ Fighting the universal conspiracy, I tried opening my eyes and listening to the conductor simultaneously,   yeaah multi-tasking ! ‘ Oh, yeah, thank you! Thanks !’ a formal smile, rubbed shoulders (it wasn’t crowded, I was yet sleepy) rubbing my eyes I stepped down of the tram. “ Wooo….Man! Where I am? This is not Kolakata, forget it, this is not even India !” I stepped down apparently from Kolkata Tramway at   Maidan   near Victoria Memorial, but it wasn’t the same. There was no   maidan , no typical Kolkata traffic, no Victoria Memorial and it was something else. Fishy! No it wasn’t fishy. I looked back at Tram, it wasn’t like Tram either. Highway 31 Bikers' Restaurant ‘ Have I had grass? No, neva! So, how did I disembark a metro when I picked up a tram an hour ago? ’ I
