  1. Judge them all you like but Delhi girls are a class apart and even if you find them to be a bit high maintenance, they still keep up with appearances, while staying grounded. You've probably heard about them from your friends and peers - some really subtle stories about how they manage their comfort zone. Some stories might be tastefully elaborated upon while the rest are daunting enough to never be told again. Whatever it is, dating a Delhi girl is quite an experience and if you haven't gone through it yet, you're still a novice in the dating world. What does it take to date a Delhi girl, you ask? Just a lot of gut wrenching charisma, I guess, oh and some nice shoes. Nah, they're not all that materialistic. Classy? Hell yeah! Delhi, as a city has definitely left its regressive ways behind, especially where culture comes into play. With the inbound migratory crowd post-partition, a mix and blend of different ideas, viewpoints and a fierce knack of judgement was introduced to the city. Most of the cumulative sense of self that city dwellers have conjured over the years comes from learning to define one's own culture and not depend on a particular one, to grow and nurture. So if you think about it, Delhi girls are as independent as the culture the city has to offer! Actually, independence runs incestuously within the clout Delhi extensively brags about and women are heavily a part of it. So, dating a Delhi girl is indeed a thrill, for she will always have a mind of her own, not muddled with city jargon, which defines a woman to be a particular way. You can indeed be nitpicky and choosy when it comes to dating a girl from Delhi. There are varied categories and none of them have close-ended boundaries. You can date any 'type' of a Delhi girl and trust me, she will still not bore you. The chill girl, who is easily misunderstood as the member of a highly functional girl-y clique is actually your run of the mill, heavily inspired by her own inhibitions, a wonder woman and a not -dying-soon-enough breed of Delhi girl. She loves to party and works harder than the city functions. When you go out on a date with her, she'll rummage the bar for the best alcohol and inspire people with her moves and loud boisterous selfie clicking spree. But, she will always be graceful, when in your company and if she likes you enough, she'll talk her heart out about her dreams . You will revel in her company and hold her close, like she belongs, just for that moment. If you happen to cross paths with the strong shouldered, politically inclined change maker, you're in luck. The second category of Delhi girls are quite fascinating and dating them is a whole lotta learning experience. Strong shouldered only because their jholas didn't stop short of Beatnik literature and Bukowski's rants on ordinary lives of the poor, while living in the big bad city. Don't get me wrong, she's not a classist or a complete fascist either. She's a well-tempered girl who knows her if's and buts well, where history and politics are concerned. One gallant evening with her and you'll know the difference between anti-nationalists and revolutionaries! If you're on a date with a fashionista, you're in for a world of sweet pain. Delhi girls know their fashion and how! And, contradictory to popular belief, they do have a soul and quite a colourful, fashionable one at that. She may shop from Mango or Zara but if you ever step foot in Sarojini with her, you'll be greeted with nothing but familiar pleasantries from the shopkeepers there. She knows her clothes, her shoes and her bags and she knows how and where to find them. Fashion isn't necessarily a deafening sense of being materialistic or shallow. It teaches us to imbibe and make do with the best options around us and a girl who loves her fashion knows how to do that best. So, the next time you cringe at your friend for dating a girl from Delhi who dresses to kill, maybe cringe a little less because she's not what you think she is. Kind, passionate, bold, vulnerable yet strong, Delhi girls know how to drive a point home, even if they do it in their 'bha-ya-aaa' attitude. Their own sense of culture is everything to them and even if they don't go all gung-ho about their roots, they still define them through their actions. So, if you want to date a Delhi girl, be sure you have what it takes to head to the other side.

  3. It's 2018 and fitness is just a filter away. Your credibility is built on the number of followers you have on social media, not by the relentless effort you make moving weights. You are hailed a coach by showing striated triceps, not by talking science or better said, common sense. The lower your body fat, the more you attract starry–eyed girls and star struck boys. In 2018, fitness is less about the truth and more about selling fake promises. And nobody does it better than 'fake natural' IG fitness models, with their silly motivation quotes. If you are one, this is a letter to you, from a natural lifter. Dear Steroid Using 'Fake Natty' Hope you are lifting hard and 'trenning' harder. © YouTube Congratulations on garnering over half a million followers on social media. You killed it and successfully brainwashed battalions of your faithful young fans. You just sold them the dream that one day they will look like you. Of course, they will achieve deep feathered quads, striated hamstrings and a carved-out-of-stone six pack by buying 'your' eating and training plan. We believe in the motivational quotes you post on your inhumanly ripped pictures, 365 days a year. It's actually only your hard work, whey protein and yes, a bit of creatine that got you over a hundred kilos and left you dry like a skeleton in a desert. We believe you, bro. Well, at least untrained rookies do and they are pretty much the majority of your social media following. Sorry, But You Don't Really Know Motivation I'll say this straight up. Motivation comes easy when you are 'roided' to the bone and growing every minute of the day. It doesn't come easy when you slog for years and see muscle growing at the speed of a snail. Motivation comes easy when you know that your fat loss will be taken care of by a couple of pins and tablets. It doesn't come easy when you diet for months on end and lose muscle in the process. © YouTube The truth is that you cheated. While this could be your personal choice, you chose to come out to the world as a natural bodybuilder. You preached motivation and consistency, all while stocking up more anabolic steroids than a medical store. You sold a fake dream. Unlike what you usually preach, lifting and eating right alone weren't enough motivation for you. While you might be a gift from God in regards to training concepts, you will never know what real motivation is. You ask fans to ignore genetics when you yourself took a dump all over your genetics with steroids. Why wouldn't you be motivated when you literally see yourself getting better every day? Drop The Fake Motivation Thing, Please! This is not hate. This is just calling out the unreal promoting the unachievable. Natural bodybuilding is tough and demands decades of consistent work. Enhanced bodybuilding is a different level of the sport, entirely. So please, drop this 'motivational quote marketing' and stop selling fabricated dreams to guys who can barely afford a decent whey protein supplement, let alone the steroid cycle you cruise on year round. Hardly following you, A Natural Lifter
  4. If you're dating the deadliest fire sign out of all the zodiacs then let us wish you boatloads of luck! Dating a Sagittarius woman is like walking a thin rope and if you ever fall you'd probably land on thin ice . Okay, it isn't so bad and if you're in love with a Sagittarius girl you need to understand that love is an eternal mystery for her. It's a little tough to break her exterior to get the mush out but if you do manage to do that, it's a lot of fun thereon. A Sagittarius girl loves looking for a man who can match up to her mental and physical strength and her insatiable desire for a lifetime of adventure. To many qualifications needed for the job? Well, I promise once you qualify, you'll be the happiest man alive. Independent and trustworthy, she's going to make it hard for you to ever forget her. Truth And Only The Truth Sagittarius women cannot handle lies. That's the first thing to remember if you're out to date one. Her truth is based on a deep understanding of how the world works and not frivolous encounters and conversations. She's extremely open minded to conversations that range from philosophy to religion and if she's inquisitive about something she'll get to the bottom of it. She's extremely curious about everything and if she catches you lying even about the simplest of things, God bless your soul! © Facebook/Taylor Swift Travel Freak This woman loves packing her bags and leaving for the unknown. She will also expect her man, or at least try and find a man who loves doing the same. Adventure is literally her adrenaline in life and no destination is ever too dangerous or boring for her. Pro tip: if you ever want to strike up a conversation with a Sagittarius woman, ask her about the last place she travelled to and that will get her going, explaining every little escapade she's had in life. If you're already dating a Sagittarian, then definitely take as many trips as you can with her. © Britney Spears Papa Don't Preach One thing you will always get in a relationship with a Sagittarian is ample space and time. She loves her space and thinks it to be sacrosanct and she will never compromise on it, no matter what. If she has a circle of friends, she may not want you in it, when she's around them because for her time out means a good amount of mental space from her significant other too. This does not mean she's aloof or callous about the person she's in love with. It simply means she loves her independence and wants her relationship to grow organically and healthily. The biggest mistake you can make though is try and restrict her and make her do things your way. She'll break away and never want to be with you again! © Facebook/Nicki Minaj On Your Face Her frank and outspoken nature has her misunderstood most times because sometimes in a social gathering it may be uncalled for. But if she doesn't like something, there is no stopping her from voicing it out. There isn't any malice in her intent, she just likes to call a spade a spade. This also makes her suffer from a bad foot in mouth disease! You'll see soon enough! © Viral Bhayani Easy Going Is In Her Blood She has no hang ups with the way she dresses and she believes in minimalism. On a regular day you'll find her hanging out in baggy denims or sportswear, sans makeup and accessories. She thinks that these adornments hide the 'real' her. Her simple, Bohemian ways are quite endearing indeed! © Viral Bhayani The *** Is On Fire A Sagittarius woman sets everything on fire, especially in bed. Although intellectual stimulation turns her on more than physical contact, she's a fireball in bed, once she opens up to you. Self reliant and confident, you will find a sensual animal in her who is always thrilled at the idea of making love and sees it as an adventure and if she's head over heels in love with you, she's up for doing just about anything between the sheets. So you need to be quite creative in order to give her what she wants and if you're bold and brainy, you're already there! © Viral Bhayani There isn't one dull day with this one so if you already have her, you're one lucky bloke, if you don't, well then what are you waiting for?
  5. Renowned Pakistani actress and activist Nadia Jamil opened up regarding the abuse she faced during her childhood days, revealing she? was four when first sexually abused?. The actress shared her painful memories in order to aware people about the issue of child abuse, which has gained widespread attention following the brutal rape and murder of seven-year-old Zainab from Kasur. The actress said: ?I was 4 the first time I was abused sexually. I was in college when it blew out of proportion. People tell me not to talk to respect my families honour. Is my families honour packed in my body? I am a proud, strong, loving survivor. No shame on me or my kids. Only pride 4 being me.? The strongly worded message is a bid by the activist to make survivors speak up and not associate it with honour. Following the news of little Zainab's murder, people from all walks of life in Pakistan showed outrage and deep sorrow. Apart from that, media personalities focused on the solution to the problem and spreading awareness regarding the issue of child abuse.
  6. Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi inaugurated National Incubation Centre in Peshawar on January 13, 2017. Photo: Radio Pakistan PESHAWAR: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi remarked on Saturday that revolution comes from working and not from tall claims. ?We have proven ourselves by working [for the betterment of country],? he said while addressing the inauguration ceremony of National Incubation Centre in Peshawar. We can only move forward if we work otherwise we will go back home, he claimed. ?The nation will make its decision after four to five months. We will accept the decision people make,? he remarked. The PM said that it is the responsibility of the government to provide the broadband facility in every nook and cranny of the country. This, he said, will help the youth stand on their own feet and also steer the country out of the challenges of extremism. PM Abbasi remarked the country was lagging behind in the field of information technology and telecommunication when PML-N assumed power in 2013. Licenses of 3G and 4G were delayed for five years but after assuming power, we transparently issued licenses. Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said it is the first government that not only conceptualised the projects but also completed them. He said we spread the network of motorways, added ten thousand megawatt of electricity to the system and signed gas agreements worth billions of dollars. Speaking of the centre, the PM expressed the hope that the centre will prove to be a milestone in IT sector and for people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

She said that 3G projects are being executed in far-flung area which will be completed this year, She recalled that in 2013 internet facility was available only in three percent areas. Today the broadband facility has reached 35 percent areas of the country.

  8. WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump on Thursday suggested he could have a good relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, but refused to say if the two had spoken. "I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong-Un," Trump told the Wall Street Journal in an interview. "I have relationships with people. I think you people are surprised." The paper reported that Trump would not be drawn on whether contacts had already been initiated between the two foes. Washington and Pyongyang are in a standoff over North Korea´s missile and nuclear programs, which could be used to target the United States and her allies. Trump has repeatedly insulted the North Korean leader, describing him as mad and a "rocket man." Asked if he had spoken to Kim, Trump said "I don´t want to comment on it. I´m not saying I have or haven´t. I just don´t want to comment."
  9. ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan Thursday said that it is painful for him to talk about his marriage. In an interview with a private TV channel, the PTI chief said that he proposed marriage to Bushra Maneka after her divorce, adding that out of 65 years of his age, he spent only 10 years of married life.

The PTI chief further said even his sisters are unaware of his proposal for marriage to Bushra Maneka, adding that it is painful to discuss the matter.
  10. Even though we're 10 days into 2018, the most important year end analysis is here – Pornhub's '2017 Year In Review'. (c) Pornhub In 2017, the users and content partners uploaded over 4 million videos which made up about 5,95,482 hours of content was uploaded to the website, which makes up 24,811 days or 68 years. Yes, 68 years. India featured heavily on this analysis, and honestly, no surprises there. So, let's dive in on this educational journey. 1. India has claimed the third spot when it comes to the traffic on the site. Indians are horny, and now we're getting receipts. 2. Some of the most searched terms of the year were – 'Indian *** Video', 'Indian Homemade', 'Indian Wife', 'Indian Teacher', 'Indian HD', And 'Desi ***'. So, basically Indians search for Indian porn on PornHub a lot. Apparently, terms like these saw a 1000% jump in 2017, and that increase can be attributed to the rise of 4G data services in the last year. (c) Pornhub 3. Actually, about 86% of all the traffic from Indians comes from smartphones only. I think we all have to thank Reliance Jio for this incredible achievement. 4. In India, Sunny Leone managed to maintain her position of the most searched pornstar in the country, for the third year in a row. Moreover, she's also the fifth most searched person on PornHub all over the world. People just really love them some Sunny Leone. 5. The number of female visitors on the site from India increased by 129%! Quite impressively, the jump in India was the highest out of any other country. Also, about 30% of users in India are women. Yay for female empowerment! 6. Now, comes a little less impressive stuff – Indians only spend 8 minutes and 20 seconds on the site per visit, while the average is around 10 minutes. Work on your timing, people, step it up! 7. Some of the top searches and trending searches in India were 'Indian aunty', 'Indian bhabhi devar' and 'Tamil aunty ***'. Honestly, I have no words. (c) Pornhub 8. The average Indian user on Pornhub is 30-years-old, the youngest in the world, whereas the overall average age is 35. Does this count as an achievement? 9. The biggest drop in users in India happened on 12th March – which was Holi. Surprisingly, the site saw 16% less Indians users on Holi. 10. Even though the worldwide average traffic dropped by 37% on New Year's Eve, India only saw a 12% drop. So basically, most of Indians just stayed in, celebrating and bringing in the new year on their own.
  11. Queen Elizabeth looks out of the Gold State Coach in 2002. Now she describes it as 'not very comfortable': AFP File LONDON: Queen Elizabeth II is heard complaining about the comfort of the horse-drawn carriage used for her coronation, in a rare appearance in a BBC television documentary, according to extracts released on Monday. "Horrible! It?s only sprung on leather. Not very comfortable," the 91-year-old said of the Gold State Coach, which has been used at the coronation of every British monarch since George IV?s in 1821. The richly gilded coach was built in the 18th century and has been used by the queen on other state occasions such as her Golden Jubilee of 2002. In the documentary she also discusses the Crown Jewels used at coronations, saying in a trailer for the film: "There are some disadvantages to the crowns. But otherwise, they?re quite important things." The documentary entitled "The Coronation" focuses on the historic date of June 2, 1953 when the queen was crowned following the death of her father George VI. Queen Elizabeth is the world?s oldest head of state and Britain?s longest ever reigning monarch. "I?ve seen one coronation and been recipient in the other, which is pretty remarkable," she said in the trailer, adding: "It?s sort of, I suppose, the beginning of one?s life really, as a sovereign." But her sense of humour appears to falter when viewing a piece of archival footage from her coronation showing her children Prince Charles and Princess Anne playing with her royal robe. They were aged four and two at the time. Presenter Alastair Bruce is heard saying: "Such fun for the children!" ? to which the queen quickly replies: "Not what they?re meant to do."
  12. Billed as the most raucous event in the showbiz calendar, the champagne-drenched Hollywood Foreign Press Association´s annual prize-giving is a draw for filmmakers and actors looking to create some buzz ahead of March´s Academy Awards LOS ANGELES: Hollywood´s elite head for the red carpet Sunday for the Golden Globes, the glitzy launch of the entertainment industry´s awards season, with sexual harassment scandals casting a long shadow over celebrations. Billed as the most raucous event in the showbiz calendar, the champagne-drenched Hollywood Foreign Press Association´s annual prize-giving is a draw for filmmakers and actors looking to create some buzz ahead of March´s Academy Awards.

  13. From Viserion, the undead dragon brutally crushing 'the wall', Littlefinger aka Petyr Baelish meeting his merciless death, to Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen making out passionately only to realize that the mother of dragons is actually his aunt; Season 7 ended on the highest note possible and people were left gasping for air by the time, the episode came to an end. © HBO Although, we still have more than a year to go before the premiere of the next season of 'Game Of Thrones' (yes, it's official that Season 8 is not releasing before 2019), we are sure you must be wondering what the actors are currently up to. Killing someone or getting killed in the quest to sit on the coveted throne? Hopefully not. Preparing for Season 8? Not sure. Catching up with onscreen ex-husband, maybe! Drinking like there's no tomorrow and getting kicked out of the bar? HELL YES. © Twitter In the world of 'Game of Thrones', the King in the North aka Jon Snow will forever be known as someone who knows nothing. It seems when it comes to alcohol, things aren't any different for Kit Harington in real life. Harington got more than the 'he knows nothing' attitude as he was thrown out of a bar for creating ruckus after getting drunk. © Wikimedia Kit Harington is currently in LA as he is one of the presenters at the Golden Globes Awards that is being held today. Before the event, he must have thought of partying with his friends in New York City, but things soon turned nasty when Harington went out of control and started banging on the pool table, grabbing at pool cues and getting in people's faces. In fact, a video has surfaced that shows Harington being thrown out of a NYC bar for his drunken behaviour. According to TMZ, an eyewitness said that Harington was asked to leave the club and he did exactly the same, but came back later and then had to be dragged out of the bar. We guess he got so tired of defending the wall in 'Game of Thrones' and being picked at for knowing nothing, Jon Snow wanted to prove that he knows how to drink. But, clearly it backfired and Harington had to face the wrath of the barkeep and even his sword couldn't help him here. Sigh…some things will never change Jon, and you better learn that fast.
  14. Unconventional is his other name, breaking rules and carving his own path with no godfather in Bollywood, Irrfan Khan is an example of par excellence. He might not be like our usual Khans but that's exactly what makes him one of the most talented actors, person, and a global Indian. While Indian cinema can be loud and glossy with things that literally makes no sense, Irrfan Khan brought back that subtleness that often goes missing in cinemas. He is undisputedly one of the finest actors in the industry who brings the real to reel. Describing Irrfan's acting can be a tedious task, I bet there is hardly anyone who can attribute what this actor is in just a few words. He is difficult to analyse or describe, so just let settle with that he is the king of method and good acting. (c) Instagram/ Irrfan Khan As the actor turns 51 today, we bring you 17 lesser known facts about the actor that proves he is the story of immense hard work, luck, and colossal talent. 1. Acting Happened To Him By Chance He became an actor out of pure luck. He always wanted to be a cricketer but his parents disapproved of it. Out of sheer luck, he was offered a scholarship to attend NSD (National School of Drama) and to get in, he lied about having past experience in theatre. Well, a lie that's said for good ain't a lie after all. 2. Real Name Irrfan Khan real name is Sahabzade Irfan Ali Khan. The actor didn't like how long his name was and brought it down to Irrfan, he also added an extra 'r' in his name. Apparently, he likes the sound of an extra 'r' in his name. So there is no numerology connection here! 3. The Royal Connection Hailing from a village named Tonk in Jaipur. The actor comes from a zamindar family which has some royal connection and has two siblings. His father always wanted him to join his family business and we are so glad he didn't. Are you coming ? #lifeiswaiting @qqsthefilm pic by @omkar.kocharekar A post shared by Irrfan (@irrfan) on Nov 5, 2017 at 10:40am PST 4. How He Got 'Salaam Bombay' When Mira Nair chose him for 'Salaam Bombay', the actor was in the final year at NSD. In fact, his role was cut short because of his tall height. 5. He Wanted To Give Up Acting Between 1994-1998, the actor worked in a lot of TV shows. The monotonous work bored him so much that he decided to quit acting. If it wasn't for Asif Kapadia's 'Warrior', he would have left acting a long time ago. Thank god, he didn't...we just have a handful of good actors in Bollywood anyway. 6. He Is Quite Tall Not many know this, but Irrfan is as tall as Amitabh Bachchan. Yes, he is At 6 feet, 1 inch. There are more life forms in a handful of forest soil than there are people on the planet.

The Indian Film That Got A TFCA Is His His critically acclaimed film 'Lunch Box' is the only Indian movie till date to have got a TFCA – Toronto Film Critics Association Award. Now that's totally something to be proud of! 8. He Said No To Christopher Nolan The actor turned down a big role in 'Interstellar' because he was required to stay in the USA for four months and Irrfan was already committed to 'Lunch Box' and 'D-Day' at that time. We wonder if any other actors would have done the same thing if they were offered a Christopher Nolan film? 9. His One True Wish He also wishes to gift his mother a suitcase full of cash. How filmy is that? But we hope his wish comes true!

His Moment With Julia Roberts It happened that Julia Roberts especially stopped outside Kodak Theatre where Oscars were being held just to compliment Irrfan for his acting in 'Slumdog Millionaire'. 11. His Name Is Similar To A Terror Suspect! Poor chap has been detained twice at Los Angeles Airport just because his name is similar to a terror suspect. And Shakespeare said 'What there is in the name?' 12. Made His Writer Rewrite Script A Dozen Times He is very particular about his script and reads a lot to understand his role. Such is his dedication that his writer-wife Supata Sikdar had to rewrite some episodes of 'Banegi Apni Baat' a dozen times. He is difficult to please we must say! (c) architecturaldigest 13. Meeting His Lady Love He met the love of his life Supata Sikdar in acting school and has two amazing kids Babil and Aryan with her. 14. The Father-Son Joke Irrfan never enjoyed eating meat and disliked hunting even though he was born in a Pathan family. Hence his father often used to tease him saying, 'he is a Brahmin born in a Pathan family'. 15. His True Inspiration During his struggling days to motivate himself he used to take inspiration from actors like Manoj Kumar and Naseeruddin Shah. 16. The Global Indian Irrfan is a global Indian who made his mark in Hollywood way before Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone took that road. He has appeared in more than 5 Hollywood movies including 'The Amazing Spiderman', 'Life of Pi', 'Jurassic World', to name some. First look #QareebQareebSinglle A post shared by Irrfan (@irrfan) on May 30, 2017 at 7:14am PDT The actor is the sheer example of making it big without any support in the industry. For having worked in the tinsel town for almost three decades now, he is one of the most skilled, respected and exceptional actors. On the work front, the actor already has some interesting Bollywood projects and also is working on a Hollywood film named 'Puzzle', which will be a part of Sundance festival's world premiere. Irrfan is a true inspiration and on this special day, we wish the actor all the happiness and success.

  16. Polyamourous men are those who are gifted with the ability to love more than one person. Though not many people call themselves polyamorous, I know of many who follow polyamory. It sounds strange to legitimise something like multiple-lovers in a world that believes that monogamy is the only form of pure love. We all have our battles to win in love, some because it is inter-caste, some because it is inter-religion, some because it is between the same gender, some because it is with more than one lover – at the core, the struggle is the same. A polyamorous person has to win that with his orientation to love. Polyamorous Relationships And Open Relationships Are Not Exactly The Same © Thinkstock Just because someone is capable of loving two or more people at the same time, doesn't always mean that they love two or more people at the same time. Secondly, even if they love more than one person at the same time, as a polyamorous person, you will probably be telling everyone that you are engaging in love with another. There is no lie, no breaking of trust. In fact, it is the inverse; a polyamorous relationship is based on a strong foundation of trust and truth. Open relations are very different. They are not just about love, they are more about ***. These relations are usually not permanent but a fleeting feeling of love or lust or both. The Oxford dictionary defines open relationship as “A marriage or relationship in which both partners agree that each may have sexual relations with others.” Polyamorous People Are Different From Polygamous And Polyandrous Folks © Thinkstock Polyamorous is about loving more. And, loving more than one. Sometimes at the same time. Sometimes single-wise and sometimes all at once. It definitely is not done in a deceiving way though, but with the consent of all parties involved. Polyamory may or may not have the promise of marriage or anything legal and standing in that realm, whereas polygamy and polyandry are about a husband having more than one wife and vice versa. Polyamorous Persons Are Not Always Available To Have *** © Thinkstock Just because people are capable of loving more than one, doesn't mean that they will love one and all. It does not mean that they have their preferences or that they have high libido all the time and are continuously looking for opportunities to get into peoples' pants. More love doesn't equals more libido which also means more love does not equal more ***. Polyamorous Men Could Be Of All Sexualities And Also Transgender. © Thinkstock Polyamorous men could belong to all genders and sexes, male, trans male and every other definable and undefined gender. If you love more than one at one time and believe in keeping all of them informed, chances are that you are polyamorous. You could also belong to different sexualities – you could be a man loving more than one man, or a man who loves more than one woman. You could also be a transperson who loves men or women or transpeople or all. For instance, I am a homosexual man and polyamorous, which means, despite being in a relationship with a man, without hiding from my male partner; I could also express love to other men. However, this doesn't mean that I would consider getting into relationships with other men. Polyamorous Men Are Not Divine Beings That Are Devoid Of Jealousy © Thinkstock We all have a fair amount of jealousy when we look at our loved ones exchanging love notes with another. The other day, I found my partner hugging another person. I did feel a fair amount of jealousy. But it is just that we are able to look beyond that jealousy by simply acknowledging the love and affection that the partner has for another. In his piece in Psychology Today, Berit Brogaard, an expert in cognitive neuroscience, says, “You would think jealousy would be a major issue in open and polyamorous relationships and marriages. But for some people jealousy doesn't arise as long as the partner is not lying, deceiving you or keeping his affairs a secret the way he would if he were committing an act of infidelity” Polyamorous Men Are Capable Of Relationships That Are Committed And Long Standing. © Thinkstock I hope people understand that love that's universal should be celebrated and not despised. I hope that there will be a day when people would love the fact that someone is loving someone at all and not force everyone in the mould of one-is-to-one love because that's the only normal they know. I hope that one day people understand that polyamorous people are capable of commitments too. Just because they love more than one, doesn't mean they really get into a defined “relationship” with everyone. And please, let's tell the world that they should not shrug their shoulders on polyamorist implying that monogamy is superior. If we visit the closets of the minds of monogamists too, you will find secret corners of forbidden love affairs that were hidden forever. They are also more committed to their primary relationship. Yes, Raj can love Simran and Seema. And Simran can love Raj and Rahul and Aakash. Or all of them can love each other yet Raj could be committed to Simran. Let's not burden love with the weight of definitions, even when we define polyamoury. The world needs more lovers. Now, more than ever. Let's live to love and love to love. Now that's a great thought to begin the year with, hai naah?
  17. US President Donald J. Trump's New Year's day tweet about Pakistan is not the first time he has used the social media website to speak on relations between the two countries. Trump has been criticized in the past for using Twitter to attack foreign governments, without, at times, taking his advisors or administration into confidence. Barbed comments have been tweeted at North Korea, China and Iran, amongst others. Trump is also famously known to seesaw in his perspectives and opinions. We look back at what his statements - as the US president, on the campaign trail and before entering the political arena ? has been about Pakistan: 'Not our friend' In 2011, after the US raid on Osama Bin Laden?s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, Trump issued this broadside against the country. 'Some ally' A few months later, he brought up the raid again and questioned then-US President Barack Obama?s policy to consider Pakistan as an ally state. Nuclear weapons In 2014, Trump, then a US businessman and a reality TV star, asked the US Secretary of State John Kerry whether he was aware that Pakistan already has nuclear weapons. Kerry never responded. 'I alone can solve' In March 2016, on an Easter Sunday, more than 70 people were killed in a suicide attack in a park in Lahore. Trump, who had by then announced his candidacy for the US presidency, tweeted about the bombing promising to ?solve it.? Then in June, Trump said that people with roots in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Somalia pose threats to the United States. 'Best friends' The same year, in an interview to The Hindustan Times, Trump said he was willing to play a mediatory role between arch-rivals India and Pakistan. ?Well, I would love to see Pakistan and India get along, because that?s a very, very hot tinderbox... That would be a very great thing. I hope they can do it.? A few days later, speaking at an event organized by the Republican Hindu Coalition event, he said that India and the United States are ?going to be best friends.? Further adding: ?There isn't going to be any relationship more important to us." 'I love Pakistan' On November 8, 2016, Trump defeated Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton. A day later a video surfaced of him saying he loved Pakistan. 'Fantastic people' Once Trump won the presidential elections, he had a phone conversation with the then-Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif. The unusual read-out of the conversation is reproduced below: Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif called President-elect USA Donald Trump and felicitated him on his victory. President Trump said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif you have a very good reputation. You are a terrific guy. You are doing amazing work which is visible in every way. I am looking forward to see you soon. As I am talking to you Prime Minister, I feel I am talking to a person I have known for long. Your country is amazing with tremendous opportunities. Pakistanis are one of the most intelligent people. I am ready and willing to play any role that you want me to play to address and find solutions to the outstanding problems. It will be an honor and I will personally do it. Feel free to call me any time even before 20th January that is before I assume my office. When Trump was asked to visit the country, he called it ?a fantastic country, fantastic place of fantastic people.? 'Valued Partner' In 2017, eight months after being elected the president of the United States, in a broad interview to the New York Times, Trump called Pakistan a ?valued partner? but castigated it for harbouring criminals and terrorist. "We can no longer be silent about Pakistan?s safe havens for terrorist organizations, the Taliban and other groups that pose a threat to the region and beyond." "Pakistan has much to gain from partnering with our effort in Afghanistan. It has much to lose by continuing to harbour criminals and terrorists. In the past, Pakistan has been a valued partner." 'Better relationship' Late last year, after a US-Canadian couple and their children were rescued by the Pakistan security forces, Trump thanked the country for its cooperation. ?Nothing but lies and deceit? His most recent tweet about Pakistan came on Jan 1. Pakistan was caught unaware as Trump accused it of lying and deceit, rowing back from his more conciliatory tweets and statements about the country in the past few months.
  18. Diljit Dosanjjh's love for Kylie Jenner knows no bounds. If you've been on the Internet long enough, you would've seen him lurking in Kylie's Instagram comments, trying to get her attention. The most recent one was on a picture she posted of a Christmas tree. Instagram Well, he wasn't too happy about this one. Instagram And then, this. The phrase that became a social media phenomenon #HatdiNiTu Instagram He even tried to reach her through Kim Kardashian's Instagram Live video. Instagram But, after months of trying his luck and still not getting a reply from her, seems like he's moved on to another beautiful woman. Any guesses? It's none other than Wonder Woman herself! Gal Gadot recently posted a picture on her Instagram and guess who left the perfect comment. Instagram Actually, who can blame him! After the year she had and kicking ass as Wonder Woman, she is literally everyone's crush. And, she does look like a Punjaban, at least in the picture, so we have to give that to him. Diljit is such an inspiration for all of us, tbh. If you can't get what you want, move on and find another 'wonderful' woman to crush on. Hopefully, Gal sees that and at least reply, he's struggled so much, he deserves that. © Twitter A possibility of Diljit Dosanjh and Gal Gadot is the perfect start to the year. They would make such a power couple. Can't wait for more and more comments he has in store for us this year.
  19. Welcome to the age of uninnocence, where relationships are as dispensable as Kleenex tissues. You use and throw them away when they have soaked up your mess. While this simile may sound harsh, it is not necessarily meant to be negative, and may instead signal a progressive attitude towards the freedom of choice. I sometimes find it hard to reconcile these two worlds. The first is the old world's charm of innocent romance that I grew up with. In this scenario, falling in love was a gradual process; you got to know the other person and their imperfections and accepted them anyway. You recognized all that they were rather than all those tiny, annoying things that prevented them from being everything you envisioned in the ideal mate. Two people evolved with each other to find that key balance of how they could fit into each other's lives regardless of the circumstances. © Thinkstock/Getty Images I was lucky to witness the peak of this idea of romance in my early 20s, and safely cocooned by its existence while I figured myself out. I could have held on to this notion while it was still prevalent, and while love still existed in its now primitive and almost extinct format. Instead, I find myself grappling with the new age concept of relationships, fast-moving swipes in a sea of seemingly eligible options, only to discover that eligibility does not always equal availability. Given the shiny and seemingly flawless façade of a life manufactured by Instagram-edited stories, we have gotten so used to everything being picture-perfect. This sets up high (and often unrealistic) standards for the ideal job, the perfect house, and the faultless partner. Consequently, if even one of these aspects is missing, our entire belief system is thrown into disarray, leading us to feel inexplicably disillusioned. Sometimes it feels like patience and compromise are archaic concepts, and it's easy to fall into this trap where everything is awesome, nothing is perfect, and very little will suffice. And while striving for perfection is important, in a world where it's all or nothing, I can't help but wonder, is being good enough ever enough? There are times when I flippantly blame technology or millennials for this trend, but if I'm being completely honest with myself, we're all equally guilty of perpetuating this cycle of dissatisfied contentment. If the goal of evolution as well as medical innovation (through procedures like genetic engineering) is to produce new and improved species, could it be argued that we are biologically programmed to seek this out in a companion as well? The truth is that we tend to take solace in knowing that we haven't yet settled for mediocrity, because something or someone better may still be out there. In that process though, it's easy to fall prey to the new-age ADHD of dating restlessness. © Thinkstock/Getty Images At the crossroads of this paradigm shift in the cultural conceptualization of love, it seems inevitable to break down this dichotomy. With modern dating, we can take agency in the compromise between indecision and choose from a plethora of options, in an almost eugenic approach to mate selection. We may end up with our soul mate, but we may also end up alone (at least we did it our way)! Do we embrace this change and move forward, fully aware of its possible repercussions? Or do we hang on to the shreds of a somewhat antiquated idea of relationships, acknowledging that others around us may not share this view (and that we ourselves may have evolved past it)? So, going back may mean giving up some of the progress we had made towards self-discovery and seeking a mate that matches this self-aware self-image. But it may also lead to 'settling' into a non-fairy tale version of happily ever after. While it's tempting to paint these scenarios as two extremes, I don't think they are in any way, mutually exclusive. The happiest couples I know have found a way to navigate this exhausting process, and discover a happy middle ground. If there's one common theme across their success stories, it's that regardless of the way in which they met, they were open to love and stayed true to themselves in the process. © Thinkstock/Getty Images They found someone who seemed pretty darn great to them, even if they didn't check all the right boxes. Maybe, achieving that balance means defining our absolute limits and non-negotiables through careful self-discovery, but being flexible about everything else? As cliché as this may sound, maybe the key is stop looking for Mr. or Mrs. Right, and instead letting Mr./Mrs. Right-For-Me-Right-Now be a part of our world.
  20. US fighter jets were to sent to investigate an unidentified flying object off the coast of San Diego, as it revealed in classified footage, yesterday. The video was released by the United States Department of Defence (DoD) and it reveals a mystical white oval that was hovering above the Pacific Ocean. The footage was analysed by a secret programme that deals with investing reports of UFOs. The Pentagon has officially admitted that the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Programmes existed and ran from 2007 to 2012 and was allowed $22 million in funding. The footage released by the DoD was taken in 2004 where an encounter was registered with the object. It was chased by two Navy F/A-18 Super Hornets, from the aircraft carrier Nimitz. © US Navy Commander Fravor was flying one of the two jets for a routine training exercise and was diverted to investigate the UFO that was spotted on radar. The Commander was 160Km into the Pacific Ocean off San Diego at the time of the incident. “Look at that thing, dude,” one of the pilots is heard exclaiming in the clip. “It's rotating,” Fravor told The New York Times the object was about 40ft long and had no wings or rotors. The UFO had no plumes and could outpace the F-18s easily. It was big enough to churn the sea 50ft below it, he said. © Youtube He said: “I literally chased the thing and it started to mirror us — it was like it became aware we were there. I cut across to see if I could get closer and it rapidly accelerated and disappeared. Within a matter of a second, it was gone.” © US Department of Defence Fravor told the Daily Telegraph“It jammed the radar. You couldn't lock it with a conventional radar. You could passively track it and see it, but if you tried to grab a lock it wouldn't allow you to do that. “When it takes off and goes to the side, that's a significant amount of distance to travel in a very short period of time — we're talking miles. That thing just goes poof and in about a second it's off the side of the screen.” In a very serious warning to governments around the world, the pilot warned that we need to take this threat seriously as a species. He stated that we as a species do not know the intent of these UFOs. He urged the governments to try to understand what they are doing here if they are of extraterrestrial in nature. Fravor suggested governments study and develop technology in case these objects have a bad intention. Source: Daily Telegraph
  21. Virushka at their Mumbai reception Newly-weds Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are off to South Africa for India?s upcoming Test series, after tying the knot earlier this month in a private ceremony in Italy. The Indian skipper had opted out of the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka to get married to the Bollywood actor. Before leaving for South Africa, he was asked in a press conference how it feels to be back to cricket post the marriage celebrations. ?Not difficult at all, I was away for something (marriage) which is much more important. That is a period that will always remain special for both of us," said Kohli. The 29-year-old batsman said cricket runs in his blood. "Switching back to cricket is not difficult at all because it is in my blood, like it is for every other team member and the team management as well, so getting back to professional front is not difficult at all.? Despite a whirlwind month of wedding celebrations, Kohli said he continued to prepare for the upcoming Test series. "I haven't done anything in the past three weeks. I have been training to get back to play in South Africa. Somewhere in your head you are always thinking about you have something important coming up, so subconsciously you are looking forward to it (South Africa tour). So, mentally I am very well prepared." The high-profile couple hosted receptions in New Delhi and Mumbai, which were attended by their family and friends from both cricket and Bollywood.

  23. Kulbhushan Jadhav during the meeting with his mother and wife Kulbhushan Jadhav confessed to his role as an Indian spy and terrorist during the recent meeting with his mother and wife at Pakistan Foreign Office, according to reports in Indian media. During the meeting with his mother Avanti and wife Chetna on December 25, Jadhav admitted he was an Indian spy and had engineered a spate of terror attacks on Pakistani soil, the Times of India reported. "But why are you saying all this? You were doing business in Iran from where you were abducted. You must tell the truth," his mother grilled him after Jadhav greeted the two women by confessing that he was, as his charge sheet read, indeed an Indian spy and a terrorist. The meeting lasted almost 40 minutes, the Pakistan Foreign Office said. Indian diplomats, including Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh, accompanied Jadhav's family and were present during the meeting, which was conducted in a specially prepared room via an intercom through a glass partition. [embed_video1 url= style=center] ICJ proceedings On April 10, 2017, Pakistan sentenced the RAW agent to death for carrying out espionage and sabotage activities in Balochistan and Karachi. In a reaction to the move, Pakistan?s relations with neighbouring India tensed, and New Delhi approached the ICJ to hear the case. On May 18, the ICJ ordered Pakistan to halt the execution of Jadhav until a final decision was made in the proceedings. India then moved the ICJ to give it six months to file pleadings in the case, which the United Nations? judicial organ had turned down in June this year. Later, New Delhi submitted its memorial (arguments) to the ICJ on September 13. Pakistan inspects shoes of Jadhav?s wife for suspicious object Jadhav?s wife came wearing closed brown shoes and was given a pair of slippers as replacement On December 13, Pakistan submitted its reply to the ICJ, dismissing India's stance in the case of the convicted spy. In its counter-memorial, Pakistan stated that Jadhav is not an ordinary person as he had entered the country with the intent of spying and carrying out sabotage activities. The reply also stated that Jadhav, who was a serving officer of the Indian Navy, does not fall under the purview of the Vienna Convention. The case remains sub judice. Arrest, confession, sentencing Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel, was arrested on March 3, 2016 in a ?counter-intelligence operation? from Mashkel area of Balochistan for his involvement in espionage and sabotage activities in Pakistan. The incarcerated RAW agent, in his video statement, confessed to involvement in sabotage and espionage inside Pakistan, which has also been the crux of Islamabad?s case in the ICJ. On April 10, a Field General Court Martial ? under the Pakistan Army Act, 1952, and Official Secrets Act, 1923 ? awarded death sentence to Jadhav for espionage and sabotage. Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa ratified the sentencing by the army tribunal. Jadhav has since been on the death row.

Shah Rukh Khan also topped Twitter?s most talked about celebrity list. Deepika topped the list among female actors.
  25. LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan lashed out at his political opponent, Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday and said those who were brought to the forefront by dictators are today talking about democracy. Imran's criticism of Nawaz came during his press conference alongside Pakistan Awami Tehreek's Dr. Tahirul Qardri. Referring to the start of Nawaz's political career, Imran said there is only one dear in politics and "that is Nawaz Sharif". The PTI chairman claimed that the Islami Jamhoori Ittehad (IJI) was then formed to benefit the former prime minister. "There is one person whose dear," said Imran, adding that the issue which Nawaz faces now is that the establishment is not supporting him. Imran further stated that he can give it in writing that Nawaz will never have enough corage to initiate a campaign against the judiciary. Nawaz, in an apparent reference to Imran's disqualification case, said a ladla (dear) is excused despite admitting to his crime. ?And when he [Imran] accepts the assets as his, they say the assets are not yours.? The PML-N chief, while addressing the social media convention, had said the courts thankfully did not term Imran?s assets as Nawaz Sharif?s. ?And when he [Imran] accepts the assets as his, they say the assets are not yours.? Criticizing Imran further, Nawaz had said the PTI chairman loses elections and then searches for ways to bring down an elected government and its prime minister. "Imran will be clean bowled during the 2018 elections. You will not be able to win the elections," claimed Nawaz.
