Now-a-days everyone feels proud to be called a Netizen. The citizens of different regions are getting united in the virtual world of internet as Netizens. There they interact, they meet, they shop, they befriend, they appreciate, they enjoy their choices. One such platform popularly known as the perfect combination of Buyer and Seller viz. QUIKR has become one of the most reliable website.
In the pretty tight schedule, most of us generally don't find enough time to even go for window shopping. Most of our time flies in traffic while commuting. So why not to utilize this free time. With Blogadda allowing me to go on a shopping spree, I explored Quikr to appease my long yearning of a hard disk. Quikr can be accessed through Android app or Apple App also on cellphone.
Howsoever large be the internal HDD of your laptop, you will still need an external portable hard disk to store your favorite movies, songs, the most important - your so many Selfies from every possible angle, at every nook you had clicked, in different expressions and the big important documents (in kb only :P) under whose name you buy a HDD to store more of the trivially important documents.
So, here is my journey to Quikr which was unexpectedly so much fun filled with a real Quikrrr moment.
Step I - I logged into Quikr and there opened up so many options to buy/sell almost everything (you could think of )under the predefined categories.
Step II- I quickly made an account on Quikr and verified my number to receive SMS updates from Quikr.

Step III - I wanted to buy a portable hard disk. I searched for the same under Electronics and Appliances > Computer Peripherals. You can also search directly for your required item by typing the keyword in SEARCH bar at the top. In the left pane, there are many search filters to refine your search and give you results specific to your demands only. I checked the box for External Hard disks under Peripheral type and also checked the Price range for 5000. Many ads were listed out to browse and choose from.
|Search Results to choose from.|
Step IV - I zeroed in on an ad which was offering a new 2TB Hard disk at a much lower price of INR 6000 only.
|Select your Seller.|
Step V - I contacted the Seller and left my number so that I can contact him in a Quikr way.
|Contact the Seller.|
This is all I did and logged out to doze off. The very next day I received a mail from the person listing the details of HDD and asking me the mode of payment. I was happy to receive a Quikr reply to my feed and replied back. The Seller wanted to sell it urgently and I too wanted to buy it quickly. So Quikr we responded to each other. I requested him to lower the price to 5k for which he resisted initially but then agreed later. I wanted to test the HDD first. So we agreed to meet up at the nearest Mall on weekend.
I reached the venue on time and waited for my HDD eagerly. But there were no signs of any Quikr guy. I was getting bored, so took out the notepad from my bag to scribble something. But I found no pen to write with. I love paper art. So I just tore out a paper and started making a 3D-star to kill the time.
After some good fifteen minutes , my phone rang. Yeah! the Quikr guy rang and asked me my whereabouts. I traced myself. A minute later, a little girl came near me and asked ," Are you Surbhi?"
I said, "Yes."
To which the boy standing behind her replied," Hi, your Hard disk."
He said pulling out the HDD from his bag.
I thanked him and asked if I can check it.
The little girl sat beside me and curiously peeped into the screen to figure out what I was doing.
"Oh!!! Rapunzel", she exclaimed at seeing my laptop wallpaper.
I smiled back, " Yeah, you like her??, I quizzed.
She turned back to show her little pony, " My hair will soon grow sooooo long. Then I will become Rapunzel."
I loved her innocence. Children often pull you back to your childhood and water the dormant seeds of lost innocence and happiness.
I gave her the star I had made while waiting for my hard disk. I said, " Believe in the Star like Rapunzel. Hang it in your room and your hair will grow long."
"Reallyyyy ", she asked widening her eyes.
I tickled her. Her brother, the Quikr guy also laughed.
"She is so sweet",I said to him.
"She is mad", he retorted.
Perhaps every sibling thinks so.
"Well, I'm satisfied with this hard disk. I will buy it", I handed him the cash and coddled my new HDD.
We thanked each other and returned back.
|And I got my HDD the very next day. Yuhuuu!!!!|
Thank-you Quikr and Blogadda for such a thrilling contest.
Quikrrr Quikrrr !!!!
