No Time For Grocery Shopping? Log on to Fataakse.in

When everything is running towards the smart technology, why not the groceries go smart as well? While the online portals have stormed our lives and all of us are slowly and surely getting addicted to them, one industry which is yet to experience great success in online platform is Groceries. The prime reason is our susceptibility to trust a third person to select and buy groceries on our behalf. We aren’t sure how fresh and pure these items will be. When Jaipur Beat came across an online portal in Jaipur that deals with groceries, we were very curious to explore it. So we visited the website “www.faatakse.in”. Fataakse Fataakse.in is started by Mrs. Radhika Agarwal with the objective to provide hassle- free life to its customers by saving time, money and effort of standing in long queues rather investing that time for the family and near-dear ones. “As Jaipurites have a habit of buying grocery products from trusted local vendors, so changing this mindset is a big challenge for us. Although, those who have trusted us are repeating orders every seven days, which is quite encouraging”, says Radhika Agarwal. She justifies her statement by laying down the venture on the two basic USPs – low price of high-quality products and timely delivery. We wish that it remains the same in future.

Pros

  1. First look at the website makes it look very simple yet “to-the-point”. The items are easy to locate and navigate along with clearly stated terms and conditions. Also moving from one menu to another is quite feasible.
  1. One good thing about this website is that adding a product to the cart is as simple as rolling the mouse over the products.
  1. The prices are decently done. The products majorly are ranged a tad lower than the market price, while some products offer heavy discount.

Fataakse.i

  1. Payment gateway by credit/debit Card Avenue is smooth and trusted but it also avails cash on delivery.
  1. Prompt delivery, fresh vegetables, courteous delivery boys was pleasant and toffees just added surprise to the delivery.Fataakse.com 1

Cons

1. The website consists of some plain basic looks. A little bit of page make-up will surely attract a lot of audience.

2. It contains a range of limited products, but they surely have to add more in future due to increase in needs and varieties.

3. In the beginning the price of products seems to be quite decent but hope for the same in the future.

4.  Although the process of adding stuff and groceries to the cart is simple but it is time consuming.

5. All the boxes are yet not filled with product pictures on the website.

Overall Jaipur Beat was pleasantly surprised with the feel and operations of the website. The delivery time slab is very impressive as it  allows you to plan the delivery beforehand. The concept and idea is innovative and definitely is the need of the hour. Strongly recommended. Pick up your phone and try it out!

6 Reasons Why You Must Watch Bajrangi Bhaijaan

Some of you must have thought it’s another baseless Salman Khan movie, and the rest of you must have thought ‘Bhai ki movie hai, it’s a must watch’ 😉 But the truth is, that Bajrangi Bhaijaan is more than meets the eye. In case you are still planning to miss it, here are 6 points which will surely change your mind !

  1. The story line
    Surprised? Yes, it has one, and make no mistake, it’s quite a different and a beautiful one. A journey of a lost mute girl from India to Pakistan, reminding a teenie-weenie bit of Gadar, with some emotional jerks and humorous moments, will make it a roller coaster ride for you !Story line
  2. Little Harshaali
    The reason why we went to watch the movie, and were not let down. This little girl, Munni a.k.a Shahida with no dialogue in the movie, acts with her eyes and steals your heart with her innocent smile and perfect expressions.Haarshali
  3. Kashmir 
    Have you ever been to Kashmir? If not, your soul would call out to you and beg to visit and behold this heaven at least once in a lifetime, and if the answer is yes, you would want to go there once again and get soaked in the dreamlike snow peaked mountains and the beautiful valley.kashmir
  4. Nawazuddin Siddiqui 
    One of the most under-rated actors of Bollywood, once again proves his fine acting skills and superb comic timing even though he enters post interval !Nawazuddin Siddiqui
  5. Parallel World of India-Pakistan
    Watching this movie will transport you to the parallel world which you still dream of. A world very vividly created by the director and the writers of this movie, where goodness, peace and purity resides in every human heart, be it Indian or Pakistani.Bajrangi
  6. Salman Bhai
    Last but not the least, to watch Salman Khan on the screen with minimum shirtless scenes, no unnecessary action scenes, no overacting, and using his eyes to express affection, anger, sympathy, love and every emotion that his character Bajrangi Bhaijaan is made of.Salman khan

5 Things That Jaipur Roads Say After Monsoon Showers

A six lane golden quadrilateral which covers around 47 metropolitan cities, Jaipur is among one of them, is not easy to maintain. Jaipur itself has a well connected road system connecting almost all small districts, but with the onset of monsoon the roads speak for themselves.

  1. Daag Ache Hai

Just in case you fall in one of those pits, or someone splashes some keechad on your clothes, just close your eyes and say ‘daag acche hai’ 😀road

  1. Ae Bhai Zara Dekh Ke Chalo!

Stagnant water on the roads with people stuck in the middle is definitely a joy to see. It’s difficult to locate even the gaddhas on the road and you tend to fall, listen carefully to the road singing to you ‘ae bhai zara dekh ke chalo’!road

  1. Once upon a time I was a pakka road, or that’s what you thought.

It was so smooth to drive and enjoy, but all good things come to an end 😉 road

  1. Aise na mujhe tum dekho, seene se laga lunga 😉

Don’t even try to stare at the bumpy roads, you never know when they are in a mood to hug you tight 😀JB road

  1. Ruk jana nahi, tu kabhi haar ke.

The water filled road, definitely makes you stop and think twice. But don’t stop stepping out as walking/riding/driving on these roads is an experience in itself !road
