Recently OYO rooms (twitter – @OYOrooms) has given me a chance to review their premium property at Majestic, Bangalore.

And hence this selfie –

The challenge was to explore the city and complete a lot of tasks given by them. Since the property is centrally located it was very easy to explore the city. However, taking a selfie was difficult for each task as the image was not clear.

Getting there – I took a public transport to reach, normal BMTC bus.

Check in– A warm reception was awaiting me at the property. I met strangers and heard their life stories.

image

I met this guy from Assam, who was fortunately a Bengali and we spoke at length about his story –

OYO welcome – As soon as I reached there I received a warm welcome from OYO team –

OYO Room – Big cozy room. At least 500 sq. feet if not more.

Tasting OYO food – Since it was a review of the property, I couldn’t but taste the food there.

Exploring the city – The task said any Bollywood movie poster. But in Bangalore I felt of modifying the task to a local movie poster as that seemed more apt for a city like Bangalore –

Walking around the streets I found an artful building Academy of Fine Arts Bangalore. Couldn’t miss to take a selfie there –

image

There was an art exhibition and Mela going on and that added to my happiness as it did to these kids

As I was waking around the streets of Bangalore, after a sumptuous lunch I felt the need of cooling myself in a different way. Bumped off this pan shop that sells Rs. 70000 worth of pans on weekends.

While searching for good street food, I met this person and explored his kitchen too. You know Bengali food is awesome, and they must have some secret in their kitchen –

I met this man in uniform –

image

Found a kids party, so didn’t have problem in getting along for some fun

… And continued exploring the city until I hit a dead end –

image

It was the time of sunset. So, wanted to take a selfie. Well, later I had to change my strategy as my face was covering what I wanted to take –

image

Well, you know taking a sunset selfie in Bangalore in May is probably the craziest thing we can think of.

I had to keep something for future as well and I was wondering if there are other OYO rooms in the city to explore. So downloaded their app for exploring their rooms in future and also getting awesome discounts.

And continued exploring the city before I hit the bed, in cozy and soft OYO bed –

Positives of OYO Premium Rooms, Majestic –

1. Economic compared to there actual cost. Real value for money. Grab the offers and enjoy. Download their APP and get 50% discount.

2. Centrally located. Easy to commute to all important places.

3. Warm hospitality. I felt the staff to be very courteous to me (I have taken feedback from its staff, and other guests staying there).

4. Food quantity – I ate chicken biriyani and the quantity served was good and there was enough chicken pieces in it. Good spread available.

5. Great ambience – Calm place.

6. Good sleep quality

Overall my rating of the property is 4 out of 5.

Needs Improvement

  1. The wi-fi connection in the premises needs a lot of improvement. Even though there are many wi-fi connection available but none works. Since outside mobile internet does not work one needs to depend on wi-fi which needs a lot of improvement.
  2. Food quality- The food quality of the main restaurant is not good. I tasted Biriiyani and it was not good. The complementary breakfast was also not that good.

Ace batsmen run for cover as Kapil Dev bowls smoogly

Now ace batsmen M S Dhoni, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli can’t face Kapil paaji the ace Indian pacer from olden days. However, it is not because of his pace bowling but the newly invented smothering googlies. This has created a new need of these players and get trained in smooglies a name given by his enthused supporters to show that these are delivered ‘smoothly’ and have smothering effect on the opponent batsmen.

It was also observed that non cricketers like Sania Mirza or Baichung Bhutia could play these with ease as they all participate in paaji’s new league ‘EkNayiLeague’. Surprised over Kapil Paaji’s awesome comeback Virat Kohli said “I am happy that Anushka could face his smooglies well. I need to learn this and can’t play with the skills I learnt so far.” Commenting on Kapil paaji’s comeback in a grand manner cricketer Navjyot Singh Sidhu said in his style –

“Kapilnejo rang layi

Wohdil ko chhunjayi

Maidan mein fir se chhagayi

Badhai paaji, hardik badhai”

It came to our notice from cricketing community that Sidhuji himself tried to face Kapil’s yorkers but failed. Smooglies are creating more problems for the batsmen to have with their knowledge and skills.

Commenting on EkNayiLeague Bengal’s cricketing tiger Saurabh Ganguly said Kapil ji is at his best in this new league. Dada was addressing a media following launch of his new television program for a Bengali channel when he commented that Kapil’s simplicity yet innovative mind is a deadly combination and is behind the success of this league. He congratulated Kapil for being different and bringing in this variation.

However, not everyone is aware of this new league and they are curious to know more about this. Some of the ace bowlers are trying to get trained on this new technique and they hope that they will be successful in the days to come. Cricket lovers however are wondering what Kapil ji had brought in new to them. Those who are lucky to have seen a new paaji in action are already thrilled about this new league. Those who haven’t are logging in to Twitter or creating Twitter accounts to know more add Kapil has announced that he will reveal more secrets about this new league on his Twitter account. Since then the number of followers of his Twitter account is increasing at a rapid pace.

Many celebrities are also interested to participate in Kapil’s league and they are dying to participate. Those who do not have any idea about this new league are however speculating big time on the website and hoping that they will win big money by speculating correctly. So what do you think this new league is all about. Give your opinion here and win big.
