 #AwakenYourForce   with HP Star Wars Special Edition notebook




If I had the HP Star WarsTM Special Edition notebook, I would use it to create my own StarWars Arena to watch Star Wars Series with friends in a customized Star Wars theme room at home.
I would develop a Star Wars wallpaper to paste it on the theme wall of the room. The HP Star Wars Special Edition notebook will take the center stage of the room. The room will not be brightly lit and rather will have a dark side with subtle neon lamps to lit the Star War collections like wall posters, CDs and theme gadgets that I have collected over the years. The ceiling will have radium stickers of celestial bodies like planets, asteroids and supernova stars. The room cum showcase arena will be like travelling into the space passing through galaxies. Every click of mouse will have a sound effect of Star Wars to keep me loaded into this wanted hallucination. My room will be a launching pad, a gateway to the most unknown secrets of universe.

Imagine entering a dark room that opens to a view of a Star Wars classic wallpaper with only edge illumination. The ceiling will have stars, planets and asteroids to give you a virtual feel of entering into a never ending and ever expanding universe. The darkness will be the mystery and dim lit glowing celestial bodies will be the hope of life and a new world within. This would be an ideal ambiance to set up a Star Wars special in house theatre to play StarWars movies on HP Star WarsTM Special Edition notebook. The red illuminating back lit keyboard will perfectly replace the dashboard of the Star Wars spacecraft. It will be my HUMAN MACHINE INTERFACE (HMI) to explore the joyful journey into the special STAR WARS COMMAND CENTER .



The command center is a never before first hand experience of Star Wars saga. It is a heavenly gift of customized dashboard with themes, galleries of around 1100 images, sounds, movie trailers, eBooks and the coveted AUREBESH font. I will replace the windows notification sound with the famous R2-D2 Audio clip to create the Aura and the Power of the Dark Side. The special features like Audio by B&O play and Full HD display will make my STAR WARS Arena the next best place to watch the series. The COMMAND CENTER will also give me access to Behind the Scenes videos in making of the Star Wars.



My StarWars Arena will be a one stop Encyclopedia for StarWars fans.   You will never know the power of the dark side but You Will only on HP Star WarsTM Special Edition notebook.

South Zone - Hyderabad


All though I am from Bangalore but if a city is to be chosen with respect to Drive, Design and Connect then Hyderabad is my choice.  It is the fourth most populous city and the fifth-largest contributor city to India's overall GDP. The city has a huge cultural heritage and is famous for pearls and Hyderabadi Biriyani.

The city has a very good network of roads and has an advantageous connection with major national highways. Here is the picture showing the network of roads across the city that connects every pocket of the city with the city's Ring road.



Hyderabad is an example of design and infrastructure planning. It has a blend of historical monuments like the Charminar and Golconda Fort and modern infrastructure in the form of IT park, the high tech city.This city has some of the finest food joints of our country. The Pista House and Shah Ghouse is undoubtedly a mystic treat to taste buds.

Hyderabad is famous for its street food that has an amalgamation of Mughul and Dravidian style of cooking.  The Eat street adjacent to Hussain Sagar is city's pride and a perfect place to hang around. Hyderabad is incomplete without Irani tea and Osmania biscuits and evenings have a close affair with munching chicken Shawarma. It is a heaven for food lovers. The city has swanky malls and exclusive showrooms to address people's brand loyalty. The Charminar market is famous for Pearl jewelry and finds customers world wide. Abids is another shopping destination for young and dandy. The Ramoji Film  City is another tourist destination built on the outskirts of city.        
         After Bangalore, Hyderabad has been dubbed as the Silicon Valley of India, mainly in light of the fact that more and more firms have set up their operations here. Starting in the 1990s, software companies, business process outsourcing (BPO) firms, call centers, and other technological services were set up, making it the center for all call center operations, technological development, and KPOs in all of India.

The city has plenty of locations to choose as weekend getaways. The city is surrounded by lots of tourist destinations. There are innumerable options if you wish to spend your weekends rolling on the wheels. Warangal, Bidar and Mahabubnagar are within 200 km range and has smooth drive that passes through boulevard of intoxicating nature. The drive is simply a bliss. Andhari Tiger Reserve, Chandrapur is 430 km away from Hyderabad and is famous with Tiger lovers and wild life Photographers.


                       Hyderabad sits at the junction of three National Highways linking it to six other states: NH-7 runs 2,369 km from Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, in the north to Kanyakumari,Tamil Nadu, in the south; NH-9, runs 841 km east-west between Machilipatnam, Andhra Pradesh, and Pune, Maharashtra; and the 280 km NH-163 links Hyderabad to Bhopalpatnam, Chhattisgarh. Five state highways, SH-1, SH-2, SH-4, SH-5 and SH-6, either start from, or pass through, Hyderabad. Its arch rival city and silicon capital of India, Bangalore is a smooth drive of 570 km through AH 43. It also has daily direct trains to Bangalore. 


Hyderabad in true sense epitomizes the spirit of Drive, Design and Connect and hence my favorite city for The #madeofgreat Zonal War

Seviyan Kheer

 


Seviyan is among the most popular desserts in India. It is one dessert that you cannot afford to miss on any Indian festival. I love Seviyan for its superb taste and simplicity of preparation. Here I am sharing my favorite recipe. Also because I am replacing sugar with Sugar Free Natura, so it is ideal for health conscious people, weight watchers or diabetics. 



The recipe is very simple and quick. The cooking time is 10-15 mins. 

Here is the list of ingredients for two servings.

1. Vermicelli Seviyan  - 01 Cup 
2. Milk                         - 1 Ltr
3. Almonds                  - 8 to 10 pcs
4. Resin                        -8 to 10 pcs
5. Cashew nut               -8 to 10 pcs
6. Bay leaf                   - 01 Nos
7. Cloves                     - 3 to 4 pcs  
8. Cinnamon                - 1 stick 
9. Cardamom               - 3 to 4 pcs 
10.Grated dry coconut - 2 tablespoon                     (Khopra)
11.Ghee                    - 1 tablespoon 
12. Sugar Free Natura - As per taste

Method:

1. Heat the ghee in a pan. Saute cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, bay leaf for 10 seconds on low flame. The release of aroma will indicate the next step to be followed.



2. Add roasted vermicelli to the aromatic affair and fry till golden brown.

3. Now add warm milk into the vermicelli mixture and boil it on a medium flame. Reduce the milk by boiling it to consistency of your preference. I prefer a thin consistency of seviyan as shown in my click below. 

4. Add Sugar Free Natura as per your taste. Remember to use it judiciously as it is 600 times more sweeter than the regular sugar. 
5. Now add grated dry coconut.
6. For plating, pour it in a colourful bowl and garnish it with chopped almonds and cashew nuts. 
   Enjoy it with your family and friends.



The recipe may have some deviations from the standard form as it is our family traditional recipe. Also because my mother is diabetic we prefer to make sweets or desserts using sugar free substitute. Sugar free is an easy way to check your body sugar level in order to maintain healthy, weight control or obesity control. Happy Desserts !!!!
