Like it or not, we're all becoming tech-savvy, and that's just not limited to mobile phones and laptops. Home appliances are still a niche market in India and other connected devices to smartphones and laptops are heavily underlooked. To get you started and introduce you to other gadgets that could make your life easier, here's a list of devices you can buy with one pink note.
