first_imgThe Tihar Jail is set to enter the perfume market by launching its product ‘Wah-O’ , with eminent activist and actor Nafisa Ali being its brand ambassador, officials said.‘School of Perfumes and Fragrances’ was inaugurated by Director General (Prisons) Ajay Kashyap on Friday, they said. It will also provide opportunities to inmates to become economically independent and “productive members” of society, officials said.According to the jail authorities, inmates will also be benefited through profits gained through the sale of ‘Wah-O.’ Ten per cent of the profit will go to the Prisoner’s Welfare Fund while 25% of the annual profits will also be channelised into the Victims Welfare Fund.The jail authorities said that Ali has agreed to become the brand ambassador for the Tihar perfumes. “Nafisa has agreed to be the brand ambassador for the Tihar perfumes which will enter the perfume market under the brand name of Wah-O,” an official said.He said that with little requirement of space and machinery, such units can be set up with a small capital. The inmate acts as an entrepreneur and an owner rather than a worker or a labourer in another person’s factory.Mr. Kashyap said that at present five fragrances (sandal, rose, mogra, jasmine, lavender), and a blend released under the name of Nafis, is being produced by the inmates. The market of pot-pourri, incense cones, diffusers among others will be tapped in the second phase. The high-security Tihar Jail, one of India’s largest prisons, produces several products under the umbrella of ‘TJ’s product.’ Initially, Tihar Jail’s products were sold to prisoners and their visitors, who can buy them a store just outside the jail.Later, they began to appear in stalls in courts. Also, Tihar products are also supplied in government offices. One of its stalls is currently at the Delhi Secretariat, which offers number of TJ’s products.last_img

first_imgAdvertisementThe Gunners’ new boss, Unai Emery made it clear that he doesn’t want Aaron Ramsey in his team and sees him as a surplus.After contract negotiations with Ramsey and Arsenal broke down, clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United showed keenness in signing the Welsh midfielder.According to reports, it seems now that Ramsey might be offered a pre-contract by Juventus sometime during January.Liverpool were thought to be leading the transfer race, but according to Daily Mail, the Old Lady are set to make first contact.Ramsey is free to talk to foreign clubs in January as his current Arsenal deal expires next summer. The Welshman will then become a free agent and Juventus can hold talks over a pre-contract with lucrative terms.Juventus hope their ability to approach Ramsey during the winter window will give them a significant advantage in the race for the midfielder. None of the Premier League clubs are permitted to hold talks with Ramsey, and Juventus could offer the Gunner a 250K pounds-a-week contract.If Ramsey doesn’t want to stay in England, Italy could be an impressive opportunity for him to prove his mettle with a Serie A side that has won the Serie A title seven years in a row.With Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala in the attacks, Ramsey’s inclusion could be a beneficial move for both him and Juventus.Advertisementlast_img

first_imgThe Moto E3 Power and the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime are the go-to smartphones in the market right now, if you’re on a tight budget. Both the phones look and feel good, have pretty decent hardware, capable cameras and fantastic battery life. More importantly, they won’t burn a hole in your pocket.But, which one’s better? Which one’s more value for money? Let’s settle this once and for all. Shall we?Design and build qualityLenovo’s Moto G4, Moto G4 Play and Moto E3 Power all look the same. Having said that, I really like the way the new Moto E3 Power looks. I really like the build quality as well. The all plastic shell and chrome rim toting Moto E3 Power makes so much more sense than say the Moto G4. This is because the Moto E was always about the durability and ease of use. Lenovo has kept both these parameters intact. Also Read: Moto E3 Power review: Affordable but not powerful enough It sits well in the hands and it stays there, without slipping away. The back panel, which is also removable, has this very fine textured finish that gives the phone a sophisticated look, and improves grip.At 153.5 gram and 9.5 mm, the Moto E3 Power retains the chunkiness of past Moto Es, which also means that it is still heavier and thicker than rival phones in the market. It also has wide chunky bezels.The Moto E3 Power isn’t even close to what Xiaomi’s phone has to offer in design and build quality however. The Redmi 3S Prime boasts of a full-metal body: a first for any smartphone in and around this product category. The Redmi 3S Prime weighs in at just over 140 grams, which is still a lot less than what the Moto E3 Power weighs even though the former is housing a 4,100mAh battery inside. An even distribution of weight throughout its body, coupled with a 5-inch form factor ensures the Redmi 3S Prime isn’t as slippery as some of the other metal-clad smartphones in the market, but it is a little.advertisementThe Moto E3 Power may not be as good looking but it’s more utilitarian in that it also has a water-repellent nano-coating that protects the phone from accidental spills, splashes or light rain. It is not exactly waterproof but it helps.Winner: The Redmi 3S Prime is more premium, while the Moto E3 Power is more ergonomic.DisplayBoth the Moto E3 Power and the Redmi 3S Prime come with a 5-inch HD IPS LCD display with a 720×1280 pixel resolution that roughly translates to 294 ppi pixel density.Brightness levels in the case of the Moto E3 Power are just about adequate. Viewing angles are just about adequate as well, with just a hint of discoloration when you tilt the screen sideways.Lenovo’s phone, however, does not better the Redmi 3S Prime in terms of peak brightness, even more so in terms of colour accuracy. Although colours look rich and vibrant, they don’t exactly pop the way they do on Xiaomi’s phone. Moreover, unlike the Redmi 3S Prime, the Moto E3 Power also doesn’t give you a manual mode to achieve better results.Winner: Redmi 3S PrimeSoftwareBoth the Moto E3 Power and the Redmi 3S Prime run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow software out-of-the-box. But while the Moto E3 Power, as expected, runs an almost unmodified version of Android, which means it is almost free of any adulteration and bloat or unwanted apps, Xiaomi’s phone puts in its own skin on top of Android, which is called MIUI. The Redmi 3S Prime runs MIUI 7, and will be upgradable to MIUI 8.Now there are two kinds of users: one who like stock Android and others who like the customisation that third-party Android skins have to offer. The phone you choose will depend on your preference then.Winner: Stock Android will be smoother (and faster), while MIUI 7 will give you themes and more to tailor-build your phone. So, take your pick accordingly.Performance and battery lifeThe Moto E3 Power is powered by a 1GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6735 processor coupled with Mali T720 GPU and 2GB of RAM. It comes with 16GB of internal memory which is further expandable by up to 32GB via a microSD card slot. The dual-SIM phone supports 4G LTE (VoLTE-ready) and USB OTG. The phone comes with separate slots for two SIM cards and one microSD.The Redmi 3S Prime on the other hand is powered by a 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processer coupled with Adreno 505 GPU and 3GB of RAM. It comes with 32GB of internal memory which is further expandable by up to 128GB via a microSD hybrid card slot. The dualSIM phone supports 4G LTE (VoLTE-ready) and USB OTG. advertisementAlso Read: Redmi 3S Prime review: Xiaomi’s greatest hit I will not beat around the bush here. The Moto E3 Power is not as powerful as Lenovo would want you to believe that it is, based on its naming convention. Heck, it’s not even close. Raw power has never been the USP of the Moto E (even the Moto G, for that matter), but at least, previous Moto Es were pretty fast in day-to-day usage. These phones, with their unadulterated software, managed to do the basics right. The Moto E3 Power, not so much. The phone seems lacking in almost every sense of the word, so much so that even near vanilla Android can’t save the day.Also, the Moto E3 Power is definitely not the phone you’re looking for if you’re into gaming. Even basic games like Subway Surfers are susceptible to a few lags here and there, particularly during long periods of game-play.The Redmi 3S Prime, well, it’s far ahead in terms of all-round performance even though it’s rocking Xiaomi’s custom built UI.The front-firing mono speaker on-board the Moto E3 Power comes as a very pleasant surprise though. It gets really loud, louder than the Redmi 3S Prime, with little or no distortion at peak volume.The Moto E3 Power is backed by a 3,500mAh battery which is also user-removable. Battery life is fantastic. Lenovo claims one day worth of battery life on this one. Our tests have shown it can go even longer using the phone’s in-built battery saving option.  It doesn’t exactly beat the Redmi 3S Prime (4,100mAh) but it gets close.Winner: Redmi 3S PrimeCameraThe Moto E3 Power comes with an 8-megapixel camera on the rear with f/2.2 aperture, autofocus and LED flash. On the front you get a 5-megapixel snapper.The Redmi 3S Prime on the other hand sports a 13-megapixel camera on the rear with f/2.0 aperture, Phase-Detect Autofocus along with an LED flash. On the front you get a 5-megapixel snapper.Although focus and shutter speed are fairly respectable, quality of photos clicked with the Moto E3 Power’s rear shooter is average at best. Photos clicked in good light come out well, with decent amount of detail and mostly accurate colours.There’s also one more problem: while photos clicked in good light look sharp and well-detailed on the Moto E3 Power’s screen, zooming into them brings out some noise or grain. The level of noise increases as the intensity of light decreases.Overall, the Redmi 3S Prime camera is superior to the camera on-board the Moto E3 Power, in both quality and functionality. It produces good results – albeit a little over-saturated – in good light. Moreover, Xiaomi’s phone is also able to capture well-enough photos in tricky light situations with good detail. Low light photos are prone to noise.advertisementWinner: Redmi 3S PrimeSo which one should you buy?Ideally, you should buy the Redmi 3S Prime. It does cost Rs 1,000 more than the Moto E3 Power, but it is totally worth it. If however you’re low on cash, the standard Redmi 3S (without a fingerprint scanner and with 2GB RAM) isn’t at all a bad deal. It is still better than the Moto E3 Power.The Xiaomi phone is however very difficult to buy. Although, the company isn’t selling the phone via flash sales (which requires potential buyers to pre-register), the company sells them on pre-announced dates. Even on those days, the Redmi 3S Prime (and Redmi 3S) going out of stock in seconds is a common sight which can be frustrating for buyers.The Moto E3 Power may have humble hardware, but it is more practical, in that it is splash-proof and runs bloat-free software. It is also easier to buy. Then again, it’s not the best value for money smartphone in the market right now, just saying.Also Read: Moto E3 Power V Moto G4 Play: Devil is in the detailslast_img
