BoAt Immortal 121 Bluetooth Gaming Wireless Earbuds With BEAST Mode

I already have a part of wireless earbuds that I bought last September and I have been really happy with those. But this last Sunday, the 1st of January, I happened to watch a review of the Boat Immortal 121 and I was hooked. I watched a couple more and then searched the Boat website for the item – the white one that you see here on the left – was out of stock but they had the black one.

I then went to Amazon IN and Flipkart and they were out of stock as well for both colours. I then spent the next 3 days searching and checking. On the 3rd I found one white one available on Amazon but before I could place the order the item went out of stock! Flipkart had the black & the white one but they didn’t have any in the warehouse near me and hence they won’t ship to my address. That is a weird decision by them to now only shop from the nearest warehouse to you. Guess they don’t want enough business.

Finally on the 4th I found a white one and the seller on Amazon had just a couple of them and I was able to place an order for it and it initially said that the delivery estimate was the 13th of January, which was odd, but then it actually got delivered today, in 3 days. And I am loving it!

RIP Gianluca Vialli

Italian former player & manager Gianluca Vialli has passed away at the age of 58 after a 5 year battle with pancreatic cancer. Vialli was first diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2017 and for a second time in 2021.

Vialli was known as a perfect gentleman off the pitch and deadly on it. He married Cathryn White-Cooper on 26 August 2003 and fathered two daughters, Olivia and Sofia. He was a keen golfer and played at the Dunhill links championship pro-am event. Vialli continued to live in SW6 in London, 20 years after leaving Chelsea F.C.
