§  India’s Most Checked-in locations in 2012

Based on the list of most checked-in locations, it shows that people from India’s metro cities tend to check in more, in comparison to other Indian cities. Delhi-ites seem to be the more proactive, as most of the checked-in locations in the top 20 list belong to the capital city.

The Indian urban consumers’ love for modern day retail outlets is reflected in the fact that Select City Walk, a popular mall in south Delhi, is the most checked-in location on Facebook for 2012. Ambience mall from Delhi, Inorbit mall from Mumbai and The Great India Place in Delhi NCR are also within the overall top 15.

Café 1 Boulevard, a café in South Delhi, eclipses chains such as Hard Rock Café, Delhi, Leopold Café, Mumbai and Toit, Bangalore, to claim the top spot for cafes and restaurants, in the most checked-in location for 2012. Local north India favorite, Sukhdev Dhaba at Murthal, took number #4 spot, in the most checked-in location for 2012.

The top songs shared on Facebook in 2012 for India goes to reiterate that Bollywood continues to dominate the Indian music industry. The most shared song on Facebook was ‘Tum Hi Ho Bandhu’ from the movie Cocktail. That was followed by ‘Daaru Desi’ again from Cocktail and then ‘Pani Da Rang’ from Vicky Donor, at number #2 and #3 spots respectively. The results clearly showcase the fascination for the music from Cocktail.

Desi bags in Sridevi’s videshi movie

In a still from English Vinglish, Sridevi is carrying the Arno bag by Hidesign. Price: Rs 3995

Sridevi’s fans are super-excited to see her make her comback with English Vinglish. Most homemakers are gung ho about the mostly simple sometimes elaborate South Indian style saris she’s worn in the film. But guess what we chanced upon? Even though Sridevi’s character in the film lives in USA, some of the bags she’s carrying are from Hidesign’s stable. Yup, apparently the brand retails from California too! Bet you didn’t know that! Carmel Plaza, Corner of Junipero and Ocean Avenue, Carmel By the Sea, California, to be precise. The brand has outlets in most malls in the country, so sourcing one in India shouldn’t be a problem. Now that women have Sridevi’s stamp of approval on it, we’re assuming these two pieces will soon fly off the shelf!
