Top 3 Mascaras- IMBB Survey

SurveysWhen Mrunmayee came to stay with us in Delhi to attend Ki’s wedding, we all had some moments of awe at the power of the internet. She had trusted two people over the internet whom she had never met before. Not only that, strangers such as Rima, Rati, Deeptima and Mrunmayee would have never known or met each other if they had not come online. Although I am one of the earliest users of the internet in India (I started using it in 1997, starting with dumb terminals and lynx browser), I am still surprised by the depth of our psyche the internet has gone to. Yesterday itself, my friend was telling about his batchmate who was updating his status on Facebook minute by minute even during his own marriage. I think it would be called a normal behavior in these times. Although I chose to pretend that I am impervious to the enchantments of the net (by refusing to have a facebook and orkut account, or checking emails every 2 min) it is a fact that I myself unwittingly trust many people I have met online at totalgadha or IMBB. People I have never met in real life. And in many ways I relate to them and consider them my friend too. ๐Ÿ™‚

But for a person who spends more than 14 hours on the internet every day, I spend it mostly being productive. Internet has an inexhaustible wealth of information for someone who is looking for knowledge and it provides great tools for personal and financial growth. And it refines knowledge by bringing them from many people collectively. Wikipedia is one example. Our IMBB survey is another. (right. you were wondring when I was going to come down to the brass tacks). ๐Ÿ™‚

Why is this survey asking for ‘Top 3’ and not for ‘Top 5’? Because Rati told me that women don’t own many mascaras (I am sure some ladies on IMBB would certainly prove her wrong by producing 10 of them). But I think I would like to refine the survey by asking for Top 3 because if you have 5 or 10 and you have to fill only 3, you’d certainly select the best of them. And as I said earlier, I am always for refining the information provided to users.

Mascara, a cosmetic commonly used by women to enhance the eyes, darkens, thickens, lengthens, and/or defines the eyelashes. Normally in one of three formsโ€”liquid, cake, or creamโ€”the modern mascara product has various formulas; however, all contain the same basic components of pigments, oils, waxes, and preservatives.

  2. Done…done!
    Your intro was awesome…14 hours on the internet is a LOT! But I understand it’s work and you’re not just bumming out on Myspace. I spend 6+ hours on the internet each day easily…but I have a ratio, for every 1 hour I spend bumming/surfing on the internet, I read/work for 3 hours, or at least try to. I watch all my television on the internet now too! And needless to say I’ve not only met great people on the net, but also strengthened my bond with friends/relatives because of it.
    Long time since I’ve been on here…that’s why the longggg comment in praise of the net! :violinbash:

  6. A very good day to all, (last day of 2011)
    Awesome n very true intro Sanjeev.

    After passing from school, had lost contact with nearly all my friends. Around 2007, found 1-2 of them in suggested friends in orkut n there has been no looking back since then, now am even v good friends with few batchmates with whom i was not talking in school (boys).
    Thnx to internet i can be in touch with nearly all my childhood friends even though geographically we may nt b in d same country. Am able to know what’s happening in their lives n they can know what’s happening in my life.
    Normally did’nt accept friend request from persons whom i dnt kno in person, but in IMBB hv shared sm of my lives memorable incidents n even if i dnt kno u all in person, there’s a bond which we share.
    Now i know if i’m going to visit a place where to look for shopping suggestions n even meet up with few of u if possible. 2010 has given me sm very sweet memories thru IMBB, which will be with me forever.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011 TO ALL (in advance) n may all your wishlist purchases be successful in 2011 n we get more great reviews to refer to.
    Now sm of the smileys we all love.
