Surf Fast with Airtel 4G!

Image
How long has it been that internet is in India? Approximately 30 years I think! The first cables were laid at around 1986. As far as my tryst with Internet goes,ts been around 15 years! But what has remained consistently inconsistent throughout these years is the speed! Indians are the second largest Internet users after China. But when it comes to speed, India is at the 135 th position!
Thanks to Internet, everything came at our tips. WE could download movies, TV shows, articles etc etc. A movie download meant keeping our systems on throughout the night. But the mornings would be promising as we got to see it! Slow yet steady, internet became a part and parcel of our lives.
Thankfully the scenario has been changing since the fast few years. With the advent of wifi, life became easier. Then with the advent of smartphones, came the quintessential blessing...mobile data! We got Internet at our tips...whenever wherever.  First it was 2G..which was slow but still mobile internet.

Sometimes I feel that I am a part of the incredible Zen family. I had already been to two zenfone launches and this was my third one. But this time it was not simply a phone launch, it was the Zen Festival! Moreover, Bollywood hottie Sonakshi Sinha was going to come!
I was super excited but it was a Thursday! Too bad! I had myriads of patients in the hospital. Thankfully it was not a surgery day otherwise there was no chance I could have made it!
I reached late at around three. There was a sea of crowd. Bloggers, media, tech people and college students...the auditorium was brimming with people! Did I mention the venue? It was Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium! The moment I saw the venue, I knew that it was going to be one huge meet. But when I made it to the venue, it was more than I could have imagined!
