Despite the diversity that India enjoys, one thing common among people of various religious and social backgrounds is the belief in ‘mahurats’-this essentially refers to applying vedic astrological wisdom in determining an auspicious time for commencing an event so that it may proceed smoothly. There are seven mahurats or chaughadiyas-‘Laabh’, ‘Shubh’, and ‘Amrit are good, ‘Roga’, ‘Udwega’ and ‘Kaala’ are bad while ‘Chara’ is medium. Since, a large section of the Indian society believes in ‘chaughadia ‘ or ‘mahurat’ as it is called, it would be a nice idea to have a useful widget for the same.
This widget would essentially tell the user as to which day of a year or the time of the day would be most suitable to undertake a venture.
The widget would have the following features:
1.The display in the widget could be designed to show the auspicious and inauspicious days of the month. A provision should also exist for the user to determine the duration of both the good and the bad mahurats for any particular day.
2.An associated festive calendar (marked with National holidays and Indian festivals).
3.An additional reminder system could be designed so that people can plan their events and mark the day on the calendar.

Among all the widgets that I’ve either used or heard about, I always felt the need of a widget that could help my kith and kin in managing their shares. The overhead of logging in and checking live updates for shares is huge in terms of the time invested. The heavy traffic on certain websites can cause frustration to a section of the Indian society which trades shares. A widget that could continuously take updates from the designated websites and cache the same if required would be helpful if it could be realized.
Key features of the widget could be:
1. Information on BSE and NSE
2.Information on IPO if it is released.
3.Information on the live prices of various shares (this can be set by the user).
4.Search option: This would in turn synchronize with opera browser online and get the price of any share not mentioned in the user list.
