Dare to Dream with Flipkart as #AbHarWishHogiPoori

I often feel that I am too lazy to explore much outside my usual job of writing on my blog. However, if you are a blogger, the dormant wish to make videos sometimes spreads its tentacles and then you may feel like getting up from your Rip-Van-Winkle state to make a good video. With due respect to all those YouTubers and vloggers out there, I find it a Herculean task to achieve. One of the many reasons for this fear is the absence of a good camcorder in my life.I wished that I could have a small compact camera and could go from writing everyday to creating video.



While several people LOVE gadgets, I am not one of them. I coaxed my husband for months to help me choose one for me, but thanks to his busy schedule, it never happened. So when I saw the suave and stylist Fashion Blogger Sarang had chosen a Bluetooth Speaker from Flipkart, I knew where do I have to head to fulfill my desire. For the first time, I went into tech mode and rummaged through the options at Flipkart.com in search of that one camcorder, made for me.


And finally I got mine and selected the Sony HDR-PJ410 Camcorder Camera. It did not take time for me to purchase the Camcorder with the EMI options available along with free shipping. Once I received my camcorder, my enthusiasm knew no bounds. The lazy me had suddenly been recharged with every possible ways to video record me and my surroundings. I carried the camcorder along with me during my evening walks and started record fascinating glimpses of nature all around. And all thanks to my Camcorder, that I had already started making some personal videos.

I had no idea, that this learning would be helpful so soon. A few days ago, I visited my hometown Kolkata and there was a get-together with my schoolmates. I was really excited to meet most of them almost after 15 years. I knew the moment was a rare one as most of us stay in different cities and it was just by coincidence had visited there on the same time. Therefore I could not skip the golden opportunity to meet them all and capture every moment. And I carried my new obsession, my camcorder with me. The time we had was unimaginably fabulous. Chitchatting, laughing over school memories, sharing jokes and funny incidents along with innocent games like dumb charades, Antakshari etc.-the entire evening was filled with such sweetness. It was almost as if we were enacting our roles from our school days. And everything was captured in my camcorder.


We left with heavy hearts, as we were departing, yet we had a feeling of joy, just like the way it used to be when we left school for home every afternoon. Each one of us knew that this opportunity might never come again. But I knew what to do to make this evening not get lost under the piles of other memories. I came home and made a 20 minute video with the footage I had taken that day. I edited, inserted music, mingled the funny moments together and made it into an amalgamation of our beautiful time spent together. I mailed the video to all my school friends who were present and also to those who could not make it that day.

The overwhelming response, the lovely messages and the thanks that I received from my friends was priceless. Some even made their own thank you video to show how much it meant to them. I am happy that my new Camcorder had made me do this for my friends.

Each one of us knew that this opportunity might never come back again. But I knew what to do to make this evening not get lost under the piles of other memories. In today's world of digitization, we all are connected through internet. I came home and made a 20 minute video with the footage I had taken that day.

All thanks to Flipkart, that my dormant dream has finally seen the light of the day and slowly flourished into a video that made so many people happy. With Flipkart, there is no looking back, you can pursue your wishes as #AbHarWishHogiPoori
