I don’t much use WhatsApp GROUP feature. It’s just, I don’t like that how every time it notify me for every single message. So to avoid this, there’s two option either you ‘Mute’ that particular group or ‘Delete’ it. I choose ‘Delete’ feature. But this is not the reason why I have written this article.
So, today one of my friend has invited me to his newly created Group on WhatsApp. As there were only two three people in group, I didn’t delete or Mute it.
Instead of this, I started exploring the WhatsApp GROUP features and functionality. I came across to WhatsApp’s “Group Info” section where I can see Group Title, Creation date, Media Section and list of Participants.
I scrolled down to my name, and tapped on my profile. Then voila, I can chat with myself!!!
As far I know, you can’t chat with yourself on same device from any Chat application. But this feature OR bug allows you to send message to yourself.
WhatsApp Guys, if this is the Bug then fix it. Take your time as you want as it doesn’t harm anything. But if it’s a feature then it’s good. Atleast you got someone always online to receive your message
Application Tested on:

Presenting ‘Oh Yes ABHI Shot 60 sec ‘, a film Created by me. This time it’s for ‘Pepsi Shot 60 sec’ contest. The rule was clear, I had to create a story, choose the cast & music, select the location, Shoot and Edit the videos for making a Not-More-Than 60 sec video film within 24 hrs.
Like all my previous work, this film is also shot from the Camera borrowed from The-Person-I-Never-Talked-Before for which I heartily thanks to Mr. Mannan Kadri for his amazing Canon and Nokia C7.
Well I have done it and now waiting for the Judges review, Fingers crossed.
The experience was amazing, we had lots of masti during the making of this film, will write about it in more details in next post. Till then, enjoy the film and let me know what you think.
The story is about friends who-die-for-each-other, for whom spending times with friends are more than doing any other things in the universe.
The film talks about a guy (played by Arjun) who is waiting for a train at railway station, going back to his home town, then suddenly a friend popup from his smartphone and wished if “they could have 1 more day of fun”. Taking a sip of Pepsi, Arjun thought if that’s what we want then why not Abhi ishi waqt. He typed a message “Jis waqt jo dil kare wo tabhi kyun nahi, ishi waqt ishi jagah, abhi kyun nahi ‘and sent it to all his friends. Upon receiving the message all his friends (played by Diptesh, Nitish, Mannan, Pawan) jumped out of whatever they were doing and started running towards their local hangout place. Now everyone is at Hangout place, hugging – talking to each other and celebrating their last meet with Pepsi.
That’s all about the Idea. Hope you’ll like it.
Created / Directed by: Hari Maurya
Cast (in order of appearance): Arjun Maurya, Diptesh Kumble, M. Pawan kumar, Nitish Mahadik, S. Mannan Kadri.

Friends, last week I had posted about my featured story on Microsoft’s MeetMyApp.in website… well this time it gets even better. Microsoft India has published my complete Windows store App Development experience on their Microsoft Developer Facebook page.
And here it is, My Windows 8 App Development journey, featured straight on Microsoft MeetMyApp portal. The Journey starts from Windows 8 camp to Windows Store App Submission. A big thanks to Microsoft for this opportunity.
My App Development Story :
With this TechSurface App, you can catch up with the latest technology trends, access new software, the big social media news, from Microsoft to Apple – everything that means technology.The App is more likely to be used by any person or even an enthusiast willing to know about technology trends, always staying alert to tech news, and new devices. The App will also expand its accessibility, from web to one touch access, it will be supportive of easy usability.
Building an app for Windows 8, I guess is the easiest thing to do. First thing I like is that you don’t need to be a hard-core programmer, even with basic programming skills and the right tools like Visual Studio, any one can build on their app idea. Working on Windows 8 platform was pretty good experience, since starting from the initial App development I learned a lot."
