Nowadays approximately all the car companies offer cars on lease.

Under this program, neither maintenance cost nor insurance cost will be paid from the customer. Also, there is no need to pay down payment either.

Customers only have to pay the car subscription amount set for the particular vehicle and return the vehicle after the subscription duration expires.

The year 2020 is known for the pandemic caused by Coronavirus and several changes seen in our lifestyles due to this virus.

customers are shifting from public transport to personal vehicle and they are in search of a pocket-friendly solution that will not be a burden financially. So here the car subscription helps that enables customers to own a car for certain duration.

What should you know before leasing a car?


Before signing the contract for leasing a car you must check out the below things with the dealer:


  • What is included in the car or vehicle subscription such as annual usage of the permitted kilometer, road rax, car usage cost, insurance coverage, registration cost, and maintenance cost?

  • Be aware of the maintenance details being offered in the subscription.

  • What if the customer ends the lease early i.e. can you return the car early before the leasing duration expires?

  • The on-road or road-side assistance or support offered by the company.

  • Is there any lock-in period? It means the period, during which the customer can't cancel the subscription.

  • What are the charges if damage occurs due to the mishandling or negligent driving.

  • What will happen in case of car theft or accident?

Places to visit near Shirdi within 100 kms

Places to visit near Shirdi within 100 km

You are in Shirdi, done with Sai darshan, and took his blessings. Now you have ample time which you can use to explore other nearby places and add them to your tour diary. Here I will explain a few places within 100 km from Shirdi.

sai baba samadhi temple in shirdi


By the way, there are several places to visit in Shirdi near to Sai Samadhi temple such as Dwarkamai, Museum, Saiteerth, Wet n Joy Water Park, etc. But you are looking something different from these then you may have a look at this article and find out your next destination after Shirdi. Shirdi is well routed with these places which impart better and comfortable transport.

Shani Shingnapur Temple

Shani Shingnapur located at 80 km from Shirdi approximately 2-hour duration is famous for Lord Shanidev. People landing in Shirdi for Sai baba’s darshan also visit this temple and take Lord Shani’s blessings. It is believed that Shani Shingnapur is protected by Lord Shani and this village is free from the act of theft.

shani shingnapur near shirdi within 100 km


You can book any car or mini traveler bus from Shirdi. During the 2 hours of drive you will witness the natural beauty of the villages on the way.

Nashik

Nashik, situated at 80 km distance from Shirdi, is a pilgrimage city and well known for several temples and its connection with Ramayan. Most of the devotees or tourists visiting Shirdi also drive through Nashik to as an additional tour nearby.

panchvati in nashik near shirdi within 100 km
Panchvati in Nashik


If you have your own vehicle then it is best but if you don’t have one then you will find several buses at regular intervals from the Shirdi bus stop. Also, you may hire a cab from any of the travel agents near to the Samadhi temple.

Trimbakeshwar Temple, Panchavati, Saptashringi temple in Vani and Muktidhaam are few famous temples in Nashik for tourists.

Trimbakeshwar is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas and holds major importance for several types of Pujas being done here.

Panchavati is the place where Lord Ram, Laxman, and Sita stayed during their exile period as mentioned in Ramayan.

To explore the above-mentioned temples in Nashik, you need a complete day for comfortable travel throughout the city. If it is a seasonal period then you might face a huge crowd and a full day won’t be sufficient to visit all these temples in a day.

Saputara

Saputara is a small hill station lying on the border of Nashik and Gujarat. The travelers from cities of Gujarat like Surat will pass through this beautiful hill station so this may be one of the places to visit near Shirdi. The distance between Shirdi to Saputara is more than 150 km so this won’t be a traveling option for the devotees coming from cities other than Gujarat.

saputara hill station


Whenever we will find any other places to visit near Shirdi within 100 km this post will be updated with more options and if you have come across any venue other than above mentioned then please let us know through your comments.

Find out Chinese apps alternative in India

Chinese apps alternative in India

Amid this corona crisis, India is also facing some LAC issues on India-China border and this has generated anger in every Indian citizen and we are all geared up to boycott Chinese apps and products. Already many have uninstalled Chinese apps from their phone and others are ready to do it and at the same time, they all are looking for alternatives to Chinese apps.  So let’s find out the solution and read further. Here I will explain the easiest way to find out the Chinese apps in your phone and replace them with similar alternative apps originated from India or a country other than China.

How to find out Chinese apps in your phone and replace with alternative apps


A few days ago there was an app called “Remove China apps” which used to detect Chinese apps in your phone and then you would remove or uninstall them in a click. Indian people found it favorable and installed it to identify and remove all the apps from country China. Unfortunately, that was removed from the Google play store by referring certain policy violation but no worries recently I came across few more Indian applications which help to find out the china apps in your phone and also suggest the best options or alternative for them.

1. Replace IT


This app is developed by an Indian citizen especially to support “Atmanirbhar Bharat” and it promotes Indian apps. This app is capable to scan and remove apps from China, as well as give any information about each product that comes from China or belongs to the Chinese company. Thus you may also find out the origin country of any product by scanning the product barcode.

Chinese app alternative in India
Replace IT app suggesting Chinese app alternative in India


After opening the Replace IT app, you have “scan non-Indian apps” on the top. Clicking here will give you a list of all the Chinese apps installed on your phone. Once you select a particular app to delete or uninstall it suggests the best replacement apps for that app which you can install with just one click.

Also, it is a way more useful in finding the popular Indian apps in all categories like browser, dictionary, education, file sharing, games, music streaming service, news, photo editor, scanner, shopping, social media, tools, travel, video conference and video streaming service.

It has one more tab dedicated to “Other useful apps” in different categories where you may find out several useful apps which are originated from a country other than China.

How to find out the origin country of any product?


Each and every product is assigned with a barcode containing all the details concerned with the same. Replace IT app gives you the option to scan the product barcode and find out the origin country of the product. This way you are capable to know about the country of any product and you may refrain yourself from spending money on Chinese products.

2. Bleave –Better apps for Android


Bleave is an app that helps to detect, remove, and replace the existing applications in your phone with the better alternative apps available for your gadget. But it cannot remove or uninstall the system applications which are pre-loaded in your device. This is only available for Android devices and you may download it from Google play store.

Chinese app alternative in India

After downloading when you open this app you will see a list of all harmful Chinese apps installed on your phone. Click on replace. You will have a list of better alternatives for the app. Now you can proceed as per your choice and requirement. Install the better alternative for you and remove the Chinese app.

The most important point is, both the applications are “Made in India”.

Concluding words


While our Indian soldiers are combating with Chinese soldiers on the border we Indian civilians are ready to answer China with wallets instead of the bullet. We all know there is a vast range of Chinese investment in our country so we Indians play an important in the fight against China.

Let’s contribute to the success of “Atmanirbhar Bharat” the vision of our PM Modi by adopting Indian products and being vocal for local.

How to sell Oriflame products and earn 100 BP every month

How to sell Oriflame products and earn 100 BP every month

After joining Oriflame every consultant tries to find new ways to sell their products and complete 100 BP every month to qualify the next level and achieve the rewards associated with it. For me, this is not an easy or practical job to buy products worth 100 BP only for yourself every month but you have to do it somehow if you are dedicated enough for performance discount amount and other rewards.

how to sell 100 BP oriflame products
Sell 100 BP Oriflame products (Image source: in.oriflame.com)


Recommend reading What is Oriflame business?

Here I will discuss a few ways which you can follow to complete 100 BP of Oriflame.

1. Buy a few products for yourself:


Being an Oriflame consultant you have to buy these products for you. This is not a compulsion imposed by Oriflame but if you have tried and tested Oriflame products then only you can offer these products to your customers in a better way because you have your own experience about Oriflame.

Also if you are interested to complete 100 BP of Oriflame then you have to buy a portion of this for yourself because practically speaking you won’t find lots of customers every month who will order these products.

Since these are cosmetic products so repetition of buying these products is very less except wellness products.

You may order essential goods such as soaps, creams, deodorant, body lotion, lip balm, etc for you. You may replace current brands with the Oriflame.

2. Collaborate with nearby beauty parlors/salon



  • Try to connect and collaborate with several nearby beauty parlors who already have a customer base and there you can sell Oriflame products.
  • Now why the parlor or salon will entertain your business? Because you will share a percentage of profit you make by selling through the parlor or salon.
  • Also if you are interested in making Oriflame points (BP) only and you are receiving enough orders from salon then you can share the whole profit of the sold product through them which will encourage your partner to find more and more orders for you.
  • Sharing of profit totally depends on your connection and bond with the salon personnel with whom you are making business. I suggest being straight forward and very much clear about your business terms with the parlor.
  • Oriflame offers several deals every month where the Oriflame consultants can buy a few high priced products at a much lower price if they suffice the required condition. So this is one more option to offer as a profit to your partner.


3) Try selling Oriflame products through online methods


To succeed in Oriflame you need to earn more and more BP (at least 100 BP every month) by placing orders. 100 BP is somewhat equal to Rs. 4500 and this is a big amount to place order for yourself monthly so you need more customers who will place orders for Oriflame products and contribute to raising BP.

Now, the question is how to find customers for Oriflame products?


  • I suggest being professional to sell Oriflame products online and social media (such as Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp) is the best platform in today’s era.

How to make hand sanitizer at home and does it really works?

Nowadays when corona virus is spreading all over the world everybody knows that we should maintain cleanliness everywhere along with our own body. Since this is an infectious disease we have to avoid physical contact with others so everyone is running to buy hand sanitizer to clean their hands on the go. I also went to buy a few for me and my family but there is no stock of hand sanitizer in any medical shop or general shop. I was disappointed with this then one of the shopkeepers gave me the idea of making hand sanitizer at home with the help of aftershave. I was happy to know this and curious at the same time for making one for me. I searched online for a hand sanitizer recipe and picked up one for me. Let’s see the procedure. Also know the experience with it and does it really works?

Hand sanitizer making at home


After a lot of research on google, I found that hand sanitizer must contain at least 60% alcohol and aftershave contain only a few percentages of alcohol which does not meet the requirement for hand sanitizer. So I went with the option of isopropyl alcohol with more than 70% USP.

Ingredients you need:

  • Isopropyl alcohol (>70% USP)

    Isopropyl alcohol, also known as rubbing alcohol, is a disinfectant.

  • Aloe Vera gel (which is half of the Isopropyl alcohol in quantity.

    Aloe vera gel, acting as a base here, has anti-bacterial properties and it gives moisturization to the skin.

  • Essential oil (optional) - few drops for fragrance

For making 3 parts of the hand sanitizers, proportion should be 2/3 part is Isopropyl alcohol and the rest 1/3 is aloe vera gel.

All the ingredients are easily available in the market and they are not very expensive also. You will end up making hand sanitizers at a much lower cost than the higher-priced sanitizers available in the market.

Procedure to make hand sanitizer:


Take Isopropyl alcohol in a bowl or container. Add aloe vera gel and mix it properly. Aloe vera gel should be mixed in the rubbing alcohol completely and it should not remain isolated. Hand sanitizer is ready and you may pour it in any bottle to carry with you.

You may also add a few drops of tea tree oil or any essential oil for additional benefits of fragrance and moisturization. This is optional and totally depends on your interest.

Conclusion


I am not sure up to what extent these homemade hand sanitizers reduce the germs and bacteria on our hands. The texture and feel of this sanitizer are mostly close to the packed one but I cannot assure you for the reduction of bacteria and germs really. Washing your hands with soap and water is the best method to clean as compared to using hand sanitizer so if you are capable and comfortable to use soap and water then please use this technique only.
