Ab baath aisi hai ki agar India maain launch ho bhi gaya toh bahaut saarey Indian (Google) centric app nahi milengey jaise Youtube, Play Store etc. Ab India maain toh Youtube hi chalta hai aur tablet toh video dekhney ke liye hi hai mostly toh Youtube nahi rehna ek bahaut baadi kathinaayi hai. Orange pulpy juice, maaine piya hai bahaut acha hai. Aap bhi pijiye.
