For me, India's North East is gorgeous enough to tempt any good soul to stay back there. A melting pot and gateway to South East Asia but there's no one to promote this place. They get no importance because it’s too far from the capital. When people are talking of reaching to Mars, some people still think that NE region is another country. Creating awareness about the region is what we need.
Northeast India, often misunderstood but praised for its beauty is one of the most enviable regions on Earth. Surrounded by hills, this region often creates a mystery for the outsiders. This region always gets media attention when something bad happens. No one is interested to look beyond the negatives of this place. However things are now slowly changing for good. A new wave of optimism has suddenly generated among the people outside and inside North East.
Nelive.in has a vision to showcase NE to the world and make it shine like the brightest moon on the planet. It comprises of senior journalists, bloggers and techies. A brand new start-up that has the potentiality to provide huge advertising benefits to the people of Northeast.
They too have a verified classified section, where people can contact buyers and sellers. These are the initial days for this portal but I am sure in future Nelive.in will surely succeed in spreading good words about the people and culture of North East India to the world.
With an experienced crew of digital media, journalists and online writers well versed in journalism, product management, technical and business development and online blogging, Nelive.in has four full time staff and approx. 25 freelance writers and reporters working from various parts of North East India.

I felt lost among winners,
I felt lonely in the crowd,
I jumped from my bed,
I tortured my loved ones.
There was no one in my list,
Everyone discarded my existence,
I felt like a loser,
I felt like an anonymous shadow.
There's hate within me,
There's no inspiration,
The evil took over my brain,
I couldn't cross the wooden bridge
That appears in my dream.
I felt like a poor man,
I felt like a robber,
I felt like I am cursed,
to face the ruthless chaos.
People I loved, went away for better luxury,
People I hated criticised my destitute,
Hatred is what I got,
Smokes and dust surrounded my world.
That night, I slept half,
Woke up in the morn,
To erase my dreams,
In search of something,
That something better than my dreams.
My quest ended,
My hopelessness gone,
When I saw her pretty face in my phone,
After a brief silence,
I woke up again,
And found her near me sleeping like my angel.
Atlast! I got my bit of metamotivation.

Indian cinema is no more playing with half-baked VFX for sure. With Bahubali: The Beginning, filmmaking in India surely created a benchmark which will motivate and inspire other filmmakers to create cinematic marvel. I was thrilled to see its trailer on Youtube month ago. It created an inner urge to see what Bahubali has in store for me. I never expected a Troy, LOTR or a 300 from Indian film industry in near future but Bahubali proved me wrong.
The whole movie was a work of art, the finest masterpiece and a huge epic drama. Larger than life imageries, fantastic war techniques and an outstanding story telling make Bahubali the biggest blockbuster in India. Every frame of the movie was handcrafted with panache. Mr. S. S. Rajamouli, the director of this epic movie has done what no other filmmaker in India has done so far. He gave us a film to be proud of.
The film exudes excellence throughout. I am a big Lord of the Rings fan and by watching this movie, I could see our own LOTR. Bahubali is fully Indian, from clothes to location, from music to VFX, CGI, this movie created an aura of magnificence. There are many highlights in this movie that will give you goose bumps. Prabhas (the protagonist) plays the perfect frontman in this movie. Rana Daggubati's character surely gave us an idea of the first Indian super villain. Sathyaraj as Kattappa was brilliant and Prabhakar as Kalakeya king stole the show with his new found diction Kiliki. All praises for Srinivas Mohan, the VFX chief who rendered unseen visuals. After watching this movie, I had a long good hangover and I surely love it.

This is a million dollar question and guys around the world are confused. Woman known for their extremely unpredictable behavior seldom discloses their likes and dislikes and mostly they won't tell what they want. Most guys think that they like a good nice guy who is romantically active while women in their silent fantasies crave for something else. In most cases, a nice guy is often friendzoned while the bad guys who hardly knows how to speak to a girl takes all the pleasures home.
Nice guys are always busy impressing girls by doing nice things like gifting, waiting for them long hours in the coffee shops and writing long love letters while a bad guy does nothing like that. They are not concerned about the likes and dislikes of a woman while they surely know how to woo them point blank. Most nice guys have experienced a rejected date while bad guys make the girls wait for them. Actually most bad guys play tough to get and carry a masculine look, which attracts female. Males should be like males and any female attributes in males make them unattractive.
I have seen many good looking girls hanging around with roadside romeos while nice guys roaming around single with their headphones on. To be good or not is the main question now, which men from all ages are trying to find out. Women in India are mostly fond of guys who are good-looking, rich and practical. You have really little chance of getting a woman if they say - you are really nice. This is the end of your struggle. The moment they tell this, you are friendzoned and will be used like recycle bins after that. Well, these are only my opinion. What's your take on this?

There's nothing like a Writer's silence. This is the period, when he goes through various emotions but unfortunately he fails to scribble down his thoughts. He stumbles against stones, he feels dizzy and finally he goes through a period of extreme silence. The writing virtually takes a back seat and he goes into a thinking mode. During this stage he tries to do millions of other things like socializing, giving time to a new relationship, making friends, sharing, shopping etc. however things generally don't satiate his inner urge to discover his true self. The itch always follows him. The temporary phase slowly passes by and slowly he rejoins the missed words, emotions and experiences with ease. He comes alive again through his words.

India is a land of opportunities and here women are doing equally well in the job market. Unlike yester years women in India are becoming more independent. They are vocal about their rights, straightforward in dealing with problems and equally emotional about people they care about. Although, in this fast paced life, there’s no time, women in India are doing everything for keeping a balance between work and life.
I was completely amazed to see some interesting women centric job profiles coming up however women in India are capable of giving a tough fight to its male counterpart in any given field. Working women are always active. They are more focused about their goals in life and their priorities. Although they may look ultra-professional from outside, they actually have a very soft side inside. Working women are definitely more serious about their relationships with their partners.
Woman staying at home like a regular housewife miss out various fun. Their main priority is only to keep the house clean, cook, take care of kids and watch daily soaps. They also gain weight fast because they have no serious work to do. Indian housewives typically gain weight and are found strolling in the neighborhood park. Unfortunately they realize about their weight after a long time. While working women are always on their toes, attending meetings, travelling, eating less oily food which eventually makes them gorgeous. They keep themselves busy and their mind has enough room for creativity.
There are so many women in India, who loves to stay inside however they never realize that by doing this they are killing their skills. Sitting at house is like a drug addiction which will eventually make you dumb. Working women surely knows this which is why they prosper. They are good at everything from cooking to taking care of their partners.
They hardly indulge in small talks. They have a world of their world and their independence is their greatest weapon to kick away their blues. I don’t know how happy Indian housewives are but I definitely know there is huge lot of pressure over them. They have to listen to everyone and act accordingly. They have less freedom which makes them vulnerable. In order to break the monotony, women should seriously think about the pros and cons of taking a working life or a life of house wife. It’s perfectly fine to have a choice and I respect everyone’s view. These are only my opinion, feel free to leave your comments.
