Aamir Khan to be face of 'Incredible India'

Aamir Khan to be face of 'Incredible India'

It’s now Aamir Khan’s turn to sell India to the world! The Bollywood hero has been roped in by the tourism ministry to be the face of its brand campaign ‘Incredible India’ to showcase the country’s rich heritage and culture and the message, Athithi Devo Bhava (guest is god).

Khan, who met Tourism Minister Ambika Soni personally to receive the offer officially in the national capital Friday, said he was more than happy to be part of the campaign.

“I have accepted the invitation. I am very happy to be part of it. It is a wonderful country and ‘incredible’ is the fitting word for it,” Khan, who was wearing a black T-shirt over rugged and torn jeans, told reporters at Soni’s residence here.

However, the ministry is yet to finalise the type of campaign it wants to do for the coming year.

“We will be coming out with an ad campaign and a road show to promote India’s tourism. It will highlight the culture and heritage of the country, which are the USPs of our country,” the minister said.

The actor, who said he would be working free of cost for the campaign, appeared to have a fair idea about what he was going to do.

“We should show our hospitality. India is famous for it. Even if there are some incidents, we should take steps to sensitise people,” he said.

“Each social work is different. Through this, I want to remind people how great is our country and want to sensitise our people. I want to tell them what we are – we are warm and hospitable people. We have to protect those who are visiting our country. We must ensure that they have a good time and come back again.”

The ‘Incredible India’ campaign launched in 2002, showcasing the country’s unique heritage and cultural aspects, has been a major hit and made considerable impact on its tourism sector.

Khan made it clear that his participation was a part of his social commitments and he had no plans to enter politics. “I am an entertainer and will continue to do good work. I am part of it because I want to spread social message.”

Earlier, Shah Rukh Khan was a part of the campaign for creating awareness on garbage disposal.

According to Aamir, films are good way to showcase India. “After the movie Lagaan, wherever I go, I used to meet people who were interested in visiting India.”

Asked if the recent terror attacks – in Bangalore and Ahmedabad – would damage the country’s aspirations in the tourism sector, Aamir said: “Terrorism is against everyone. We should be united. We are for peace and if there is one bomb blast, we should light a billion candles.”

“If they (terrorists) are spreading poison, we should spread the message of love and peace,” he said.

Bollywood director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and lyricist Prasoon Joshi were also present.

EVDO On-Rental or On-Purchase ?

BSNL EVDO now available in Hyderabad

As most of you know, there are two options to choose before you purchase the device. One is ”On-Rental” and the another is “On-Purchase”. To know more about the price difference, see this page.

If you choose “On-Rental”, then you will pay little extra every month and if you opt to purchase the device at the beginning, i.e “On-Purchase”, then you will pay low bill every month.

So which plan is best for you? If you are big on pocket, you will go for “On-Purchase”, if not you will go for “On-Rental”. But there is something that you will have to keep in mind. On-Purchase will give you the limited warranty, but whereas On-Rental will give you unlimited warranty. So what’s the advantage?

I’ll explain you in brief. Think; if you bought the device at beginning for 3,500 Rs, the device is all yours and you will pay no extra cost every month expect the regular fee. You will get warranty for a year or two. And if something goes wrong and your device is not functioning after the warranty period, then you will have to pay for repair charges, if the device cannot be repaired, you will have to dig up your pocket and purchase the device once again!

But whereas if you choose to go for “On-Rental”, you will pay little extra, and the advantage is, you will get the device repaired of replaced if something goes wrong whenever or for repeated number of time with no cost!

If you are thinking how I came to know about this, then I have the answer for you.

Recently, my device was not able to connect to the internet, after few days I took the device to the exchange and reported the problem. They asked me for my number, after giving my number, they checked online for the type of option that I have chosen. Hopefully, I’m “On-Rental”, and they said since your device is on rental, we will fix the problem and will give the device tomorrow. And I went to exchange on the next day, I got my device repaired for no charges.

I just asked them about what if I got this device for “On-Purchase” and they said it will repaired for free only when its under warranty!

I also read a post from some member in the forum (don’t remember the name), which says about similar consequence. But I experienced it.

So the verdict is, pay little extra every month and choose “On-Rental”, instead of buying the device at once and making your pocket cry when it goes boom!

New to SMS? What is a text message?

SMS is the acronym for Short Message Service. SMS allows up to 160 characters of text to be sent or received by a digital mobile phone. Just type your message onto the keypad of your cellular phone. Think of it as mini-email.

Text messaging is a SMS (Short Message Service) that can be made from a mobile phone (cell phone) to another mobile phone or from and to web based services such as IQC [where you don’t need a phone to send an SMS]. SMS allows the sending and receiving of a maximum of 160 characters. You can also send non-text short messages such as ringtones, logos, cards, calendars, clipart and WAP. More than 20 billion text messages are sent per month.
