You can now pay your LIC premiums online at the click of a mouse,¬ (at some clicks of mouse actually). Here are simple steps to pay your premium online and you get a receipt almost instantly. I just paid my mom’s premium so i know

It turns out that the site was nothing short of a scam , no embezzlement was involved but scam nonetheless. The site warlier gave free domains to people with the option of showing or not showing ads. I was one of the stupid few who signed up and made a cool TLD alias to my already existing earlier domain. With time my site became popular both on visits and search engine Page Rank. DOT Tk or .tk Page Ranks are in no way affected by the fact that they open the page in a frame. Anyway , i recently checked my DOT Tk or .tk alias and was horrified to see a 15 second counter and POP UP ads. POP UP ads are THE WORST form of advertising. Yuck, my site looks like a CHEAP for PROFIT only website now , YUCK again , so i am slowly fazing out the DOT Tk or .tk domain. So an advice to all of you , stay clear of DOT Tk or .tk domains and if you already have them , look for alternatives. The free domain is not worth it. Also there are a number of restrictions on the DOT Tk or .tk domains
1. You cant register more than 3 free domains on a email address.
2. You must guarantee a minimum number of visitors each month or they will take away your site and suspend it.
3. I have wasted a lot of time in trying favicons for the free DOT Tk or .tk domains. And i have come to the conclusion that its not possible.
4. You dont own the domain , Dot TK does , so even if your site becomes hugely popular its of little use to you, moreover you are making them money by showing the ugly DOT Tk or .tk ads.

Creative has launched its new mini MP3 player the ZEN V PLUS in India. The product looks cool and offers a great alternative to the Ipod. Moreover i hate the Ipod because its overpriced ,featureless and its battery kills the device. Moreover Apple is one of the least eco friendly companies in the world. The one in the photo is the Orange/Black one GB version. The headphones in the photo are not the standard ones qhich accompany the player. the player also comes in an orange white version. the player is also available in 2,4 and 8 GB versions.The 1 GB player has a street price of 7000 rupees.
A great price , but make sure to try out the product thoroughly before you buy it !
In what is going to be pleasant news to the ears of old serial lovers, Malgudi Days and Fauji , two classic serials will now be available for free watching on Rajshri.com. However downloading them will not be free and will cost 99 cents an episode , yikes !
Fauji was the serial which supposedly jumpstarted Shahrukh Khan’s career.
Malgudi Days are R. K. Narayan’s ageless tales about the sleepy town of Malgudi. Enjoyable.
Neo sports will now be available on tata sky. This comes as a relief to the thousands of Tata Sky dth subscribers who had to miss the first match and watch the second match delayed on Doordarshan. Dish TV subscribers will however continue to miss out on the action.
But¬ the interactive feed will be available on tata sky only from the next series when India take on Sri Lanka. Neo sports can be watched on channel number 411 on Tata Sky.
