  1. His character in 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' was too relatable and had dialogues that every guy could swear by. Kartik Aaryan is making his own niche and often ends up impressing us with his quirky style. And Kartik is back again with not just a new film but has also undergone an incredible transformation, stunning everyone around. Styled by the coolest @ishabhansali #Sonuketitukisweety ðð» #TrailerLaunch A post shared by KARTIK AARYAN (@kartikaaryan) on Dec 22, 2017 at 9:17pm PST The chocolate boy unveils his never seen before avatar with his perfectly chiselled body and ripped abs on Instagram. Trained hard for this And will train even harder ðªð» Thank you @prashantsixpack n @rohanbodysculptor @bodysculptorofficial A post shared by KARTIK AARYAN (@kartikaaryan) on Jan 16, 2018 at 8:30pm PST It's obvious that the actor was sweating it out in the gym and this body is the result of it. © Twitter If you have followed Karthik you will know at one point the actor was really skinny and had a lean body, but his new avatar can give any actor a run for his money. © Twitter The actor went through some serious training to get this physique for his forthcoming movie 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety'. The trailer has already created quite a buzz in the tinsel town for all the right reasons. This time director Luv Ranjan's film is all about bromance Vs romance and we love it. His fans will get a glimpse of his body in Yo Yo Honey Singh's new song 'Chhote Chhote Peg'. The song apparently required some closeup of his body and that's why the actor decided to transform his look. Our Next Song by #YoYoHoneySingh to release in 2 days!! ð¤ð» Song out on 18th January #SonuKeTituKiSweety @yyhsofficial @NushratBharucha @mesunnysingh @boscomartis @TSeries @luv_films #luvranjan @gargankur82 A post shared by KARTIK AARYAN (@kartikaaryan) on Jan 15, 2018 at 8:31pm PST For people who wonder who helped Karthik get this bod, it's none other than famous celebrity trainer Prashant Sawant who has in past also trained some big actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Varun Dhawan and Ajay Devgn. Be Unreal ð Captured by the amazing @rohanshrestha A post shared by KARTIK AARYAN (@kartikaaryan) on Aug 3, 2017 at 7:46pm PDT Karthik's new hunk look and perfectly cut washboard abs have left us impressed. It's time people start taking their New Year gymming resolution seriously.
  2. Without doubt, the most legendary boxing champion ever, Muhammad Ali was one of the greatest sports icons in history. Out of the 61 fights he competed in throughout his career, he won 56, including a whopping 37 knockouts. Flamboyant and cocky, Ali was supremely confident and vocal of his achievements, something he justified with each win. Like he said, “It's not bragging if you can back it up.” Fierce in the boxing ring and feisty out of it, Ali was more than just a boxing star. Born as Cassius Clay, he chose a name closer to his heart, discarding what he called his 'slave name'. Not one to be afraid of speaking the truth and doing what's right, he openly opposed the Vietnam war and refused to serve in the US Army, as a result of which he faced a 3-year ban from professional boxing. A champion not only in the boxing ring but also outside of it, a role model for every dreamer who was told he wasn't enough, Ali inspired many and continues to do so. Here are a few quotes by the man that prove impossible is just an opinion, not a fact.

  3. Baahubali's success took the whole nation by storm and now people can't wait to see Prabhas making his big Bollywood debut soon. Well, the franchise's success was an exceptional example which proved that Prabhas had the mettle to make the entire country adore him with his sheer talent and persona. Filmmaker Karan Johar and Dharma Productions played a vital role in the distributions of 'Baahubali' in various regions of India. And if reports are to be believed, it will be KJo who will be launching South's big shark in B-town. While the buzz about Prabhas's Bollywood works often keeps making news. The latest report claims that Prabhas' second Bollywood film will be a multi-lingual and high budget film and the makers want to cast Deepika Padukone as the leading lady in the film. Apparently, the makers are already in talks with her and if everything goes well then the duo will be seen on-screen together. Well, even Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt were considered for this part but makers decided that Deepika was the right pick. © Twitter In a recent interview with TOI Prabhas said, “I watch a lot of Hindi films. I live in Hyderabad, where 60 percent of the people speak Hindi. I am getting good offers from Bollywood. I had okayed a script three years ago. It is a love story that I will do post-Saaho." Now that's indeed great news and we already approve of Deepika and Prabhas! Let us know what you think.
  4. As much as we'd like to imagine, there's no way Normcore's going to impress the girls. Dressing the hell down in its literal sense isn't the pathway to score a hot date, you see. Because to be frank, if there's anything the females notice first about men, it's their personal style and social-behavioral nuances. Besides, their sneakers, the beard and so on. Point being, rich dad/producer/somewhat famous, Arbaaz Khan is the man the hottest mammas (ex: Malaika Arora Khan) would dig—he has the apparel to flaunt, his fits are on point, has the bucks in abundance and well, even his footwear game is always on point. He may not be the man of Air Jordans or LV x Supreme merchandise, but in textbook language, he'd easily fall into any Best-Dressed list with his daily ensembles. Take, for example, his recent outfit: © Viral Bhayani Khan's a living example of men into minimal-effort clothing that also know the knack of injecting personality into anything. He may be living in style basics of every other Indian guy, but he knows how to play the baller that he is. Pairing his classic T-shirt with a spiffy bomber jacket, and opting for ripped jeans on the bottom half—Arbaaz gave us a great Saturday night outfit to cop here. © Viral Bhayani However, his footwear choice, that's a very good-looking pair of boat shoes, deserves a noble mention fo'sure. What's to really know about this style of footwear, is the fact that it can be dressed up and dressed down (as per preference). Usually found in variants of leather and suede (and canvas too), boat shoes, in fact, work as great secondary focal points for any outfit. Or, if you're going absolutely subtle all-over, they can even turn into the big focal point. © Viral Bhayani In addition, they're also terrific summer picks. Paired with shorts, they add a sort of (subtle) maturity to the outfit and when pitted against chinos, bring your semi-formal outfits to an incredible close. Clearly, with all this style intel that's deep inside Arbaaz Khan, we're declaring the man as a better-dresser than Salman Khan. Who, though could be a style star in his own essence, but isn't a great All in all, if you're eyeing at holding hands of a supremely hot human in life, time you grab yourself a pair of boat shoes.
  5. Sometimes test matches can get a little boring and could potentially not attract a lot of crowd since it goes on for days, but not this one. So much has been happening during the ongoing India vs South Africa test series, that it is honestly harder to keep up with them than the Kardashians. It has become more like a cheesy Bollywood movie than an actual cricket match; there's drama, romance, action, anger, it's the whole package. Oh, and how can we forget memes. It's trending on the internet so much that obviously people can't stop themselves from making jokes about it. The drama filled second Test gave us two incredible memes of two incredible players so far. Seriously, what more can we ask for, that's honestly like a dream come true. On one hand, we have a perfectly timed picture of skipper Virat Kohli, frozen in a jump-like posture after celebrating his ton which is absolutely meme-worthy. And, I think he appreciates the fact that he's not alone in this. Not to be left behind, we also have Hardik Pandya doing everything in his power to reach the meme status. He was run-out in such a bizarre way, and honestly it could have been very well avoided, but at least some good came out of it as soon as the news hit Twitter. Check out some of the most hilarious memes we've seen so far: Even Virat Is So Done With #Virushka "Kaun hain humaare honeymoon ka jokes banane waale?

  6. After a sensational comeback in 2017, Roger Federer is set to embark on a new challenge as he gears up for the first Grand Slam of the year - the Australian Open. With Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic setting the bar very high early in the tournament, Federer, too, got off to a solid start to his Australian Open title defence by brushing Aljaz Bedene aside in straight sets, in his first game. While many have labelled him as the man to beat at the ongoing Australian Open, Federer himself feels that a 36-year-old like him should never be the favourite at a major. That's the humility this legendary World No. 2 player brings to the table. But, apart from being humble and grounded, Federer also has a great sense of humour. ðð·ð¨ð­ð¸ð¨ pic.twitter.com/zvy6itZoDm — Roger Federer (@rogerfederer) January 14, 2018 Ahead of his opening clash at Melbourne Park, Federer - who's arguably the world's greatest hero in tennis - shared a picture of himself alongside a few famous superhero characters. But, that was not all, the Swiss ace had social media buzzing after asking his fans to photoshop him as a superhero. I doubt that... but let's give it a shot.. been awhile since the last #PhotoshopRF. Let's see your best/funniest photoshops of me a superhero https://t.co/jCvlaCPaVH — Roger Federer (@rogerfederer) January 15, 2018 While his photoshopped tour of India still lingers in our memory, Federer's latest request was once again fulfilled by his fans, who wasted no time in showing off their photo-editing skills and honestly, the results are beyond words.

  7. Not very long ago, in the ever-competitive world of cricket, the Indian cricket team was full of so-called nice guys who were well-behaved, rarely sledged and just believed in going about their business. However, the current crop of the Indian side is nowhere close to their predecessors. With Virat Kohli at the helm, Team India has adopted an aggressive approach to their game, tackling fire with fire. This team is not afraid to express themselves, never shy away from mincing words and that exuberance finds its way in the manner they play the sport. Currently engrossed in an exciting battle with South Africa, the chatter caught on the stump-mic is a testimony to India's evolution in the sport. If the funny conversation between Hardik Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar at Newlands spoke about their intent, Kohli's exchange with Murali Vijay where the Indian captain spoke, rattling the Proteas by batting till the end (sounds completely different in Hindi) makes the case stronger. Stump mic catches Virat abusing 'Sham tak khelenge inki Gaand phat jayegi' #SAvIND #SAvsIND pic.twitter.com/8q3crsmZuF — Khurram Siddiquee (@iamkhurram12) January 14, 2018 Similarly, in the second innings of the 2nd Test in Centurion, Kohli and Pandya were involved in a clever technique to negate the South African pace attack which was running riot with their away movement. With both Rohit Sharma and Parthiv Patel back in the hut, Pandya joined his captain at the crease and it's needless to say that India couldn't afford another dismissal. While Kohli was able to read the opposition bowlers with ease, his partner Pandya at the other end was seemingly second-guessing them. This is when Kohli's contribution, apart from his crucial innings to his side, came to the fore. Kohli has seen his batting partners struggle against the moving ball, so he ensured he let Pandya know which side the ball would reverse. If the shiny side was away from the batsman, meaning the ball would reverse away from Pandya, Kohli had his bat in the left hand while he was at the non-striker's end, indicating that it would swing further to the offside. When the bowler got one to reverse in, Kohli would switch the bat to his right hand, giving Pandya an early advantage of knowing that it would come in to him. Part 1: This is interesting!! Kohli-Pandya devise a mysterious plan to encounter reverse swing via foot gestures pic.twitter.com/eDC2B4NWxV — anshul kothari (@slimshady_ansh) January 14, 2018 In the 60th over, when Vernon Philander came into the attack, Kohli was once again seen informing Pandya what the South African was going to bowl at him. And, their clever exchange was all captured on the stump-mic. Part 2: VK makes a change in his mysterious strategy for a last second change in seam position pic.twitter.com/pSGSidP218 — anshul kothari (@slimshady_ansh) January 14, 2018 Kohli: Yahan pe change kiya (He changed it here). Pandya: Andar ke liye leke hi bhaagaa tha (He ran in with the one that would originally come in). Kohli: Jo leke niklega agar change karega toh uska opposite hai (The side of the ball he runs in with, if he changes, it will go the opposite way). Pandya: Main bataaun aapko? (Should I tell you on spotting?). Kohli: Nahin nahin, mujhe dikha, main bataa raha hun.. (No, no.. I picked it, I am just telling you). © BCCL However, despite their brilliant plan to keep the Proteas at bay, there was one rare slip up. On the first delivery of the 61st over, Kohli had his bat in the left hand which meant that Morne Morkel was going to bowl one that moves away. But, Morkel cleverly bowled the one that slid in. Thankfully, for India, Pandya stood his ground and played it off his guard. With the potential danger of a dismissal averted, both Kohli and Pandya immediately got together after the ball and had a laugh about it.
  8. Shahid Kapoor had epitomised #outfitgoals for us in 2017. Be it the funky casuals he is known for, or the tailored to perfection red carpet looks, he's got it right every time, and we have noticed and noted it all. Which is why whenever he starts off with a new trend, we can't help but pay attention to that. The latest one, however, has confused us no end. Take a look and we're sure you'll agree. © Viral Bhayani When it comes to the bizarre and weird, in terms of trends, we usually just rely on Ranveer (and he delivers, consistently, thank you very much). This time, however, Shahid seems to have taken it upon himself to do that and jumped right in. Now, knowing the Shahid we all are familiar with, we'd have said that the poor thing probably was in a hurry and forgot to tie up the drawstrings of his track pants, but we are not doing that. There is a reason. © Viral Bhayani Last year, Shahid was spotted pulling off the same stunt at an event. He was dressed in all black, with a super cool ripped, distressed overall look - but all we could focus on were his long-ass white drawstrings that he chose to hang loose. We were equally confused then, but now we don't think it was an accident after all, nope. Shahid's newest obsession is the 'Nada'. Yes, people, it has happened. The latest entrant in the 2018 lookbook, is the protector of the sanctity of the good old Pyjama - the 'Nada'. © Viral Bhayani Why, though? We are compelled to ask. Not that it's a style blunder. Hell, we even think it has the potential to be the next big thing, but that is hardly doing anything as far as quenching our curiosity goes. We wonder what inspired that? He probably did get late the last time (actually scratch that, celebrities don't let 'getting late' come in the way of the way they dress, duh). He clearly just didn't bother tying it up, and looked at the mirror, and thought to himself, "Huh, interesting. Let's give you a taste of the limelight today, Nada. Not too shabby for me, nope!" © Viral Bhayani Getting past the drawstrings, though, we love his comfy AF airport look. Athleisure at its finest, we say. The fitted white T-shirt paired with the black track pants with the bold white stripe is effortless. The way Shahid has just flung over his matching track jacket over the fly AF leather sling bag (that we love) is a lesson in how to accessorize your look with your extra clothes. The white sneakers, the black watch, the black headband and the tinted sunnies - all of it looks like a part of a kit. © Viral Bhayani You know what, Shahid? If you want to bring the 'Nada' to the forefront, go ahead. We have had our reservations, but you have shown us that you can make it work, and we are sold. We are keeping an eye out to find out who else embraces this trend.
  9. While some of us consume regular milk for breakfast every morning, there are a few people who can't enjoy the same privilege. I am talking about people who are either lactose intolerant or have turned vegan. But the good news for such people is that now your choice of milk is not just limited to cow and buffalo milk. In recent years, almond milk has gained popularity, even in India and is now easily available at most supermarkets. What is Almond Milk? © Thinkstock As the name itself suggests, almond milk is made using almonds. There are various commercial brands that sell almond milk but you can also make it at home. The benefits of the commercial almond milk are that some of them are fortified with vitamins and minerals and some of them offer a choice of delicious flavors. Good Option for Weight watchers Another thing with almond milk is that it has a fewer number of calories than cow's milk. One glass of around 250ml of unsweetened almond milk contains only 50 calories while normal milk contains around 150 calories. Therefore, if your aim is to lose weight but you still want to include milk in your diet, almond milk is an excellent replacement. Low in Sugar and Lactose Free Almond milk naturally contains very little sugar. This makes it an ideal choice for people who are diabetic as well. A glass of almond milk contains only 1-2 grams of carbs, which is essentially all dietary fiber. However, flavored milk contains a lot of sugar, so make sure you read the label carefully before buying the product. Another big advantage of almond milk is that it is naturally lactose-free, which makes it perfect for people who are lactose intolerant. Lactose intolerance is a condition in which people are unable to digest lactose, which is a natural sugar present in milk. It is caused by a deficiency in lactase, the enzyme which is responsible for breaking down lactose in the body. People who are lactose intolerant have symptoms like stomach pain, bloating and gas after consuming milk. It is a very common problem and affects almost 75% of the world population. Ideal for Vegans © Thinkstock Vegans are people who do not consume any dairy or meat products. In recent years, a lot of people have opted for this trending vegan diet. Though it's a personal choice to go vegan, they generally miss the milk that they consumed during breakfast or in their favorite milk shake. Since almond milk is made from nuts, it is a perfect option for vegans. Other Nutrient Content Not just protein, almond milk also contains other vital vitamins and minerals too. It is a good source of Vitamin E, Calcium and Potassium. A glass of almond milk can meet around 30% of your daily Vitamin E requirement alone. It also contains calcium and potassium which are important for the proper functioning of your body.

  10. 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?
  11. The moment we hear someone say Gucci, we instantly think of the luxurious and swanky bags, shoes, wallets, watches and perfumes. But, imagine someone saying “Oh, I am hungry, let's head to Gucci?” Can you relate to that? Probably not! But, if you are a foodie and travelling to Italy, chances are that you won't be freaked out by this because the luxury brand is now entering into the hospitality industry. Clearly, Gucci has got us covered from 'haute couture' to 'hot cuisine'. © Gucci The 'Cradle of the Renaissance' aka Florence in Italy, is now home to Gucci's maiden restaurant 'Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura'. This restaurant is the brain child of Gucci's Creative Director Alessandro Michele and Michelin-star chef Massimo Bottura. This 50-seater restaurant is located as Gucci Garden in the historic Palazzo della Mercanzia in Florence, which also houses galleries, museum, and a boutique that displays exclusive Gucci products. This all-day museum restaurant is said to be designed by Italian fashion designer and creative director, Michele. © Gucci What's more, this restaurant serves a lavish menu, which includes Italian classics that will take ages for us to pronounce (unless you say it while having food in your mouth). Some of the dishes served here include Parmigiano Reggiano tortellini, buttery cacao e pepe, Peruvian tostadas, and pork belly buns and piña colada for dessert. Each dish is priced around 20 to 30 euros (1550 to 2320 INR approx). The cuisine speaks volumes about Bottura's eccentric take on classic Italian dishes and the quirky taste he brings to the table. © Gucci Bottura reportedly said in a statement, “Travelling the world, out kitchen interacts with everything we see, hear and taste.” He further added, “The restaurant is a reminder that Florence has always been a centre of cultural exchange, particularly during the Renaissance.” Gucci is not the first luxury brand to venture into fine dining business. Before Gucci, brands like Ralph Lauren, Versace, Giorgio Armani and Tiffany & Co. have already ventured into the business of fine dining. © Gucci Well, this restaurant deserves to be on our bucket list. First, because it's Gucci; and second, because of its larger than life cuisine, which is totally Instagram worthy. Folks just FYI, Valentine's Day is exactly a month away. So, while we don't expect you to take your lady love for a date to Gucci Osteria, you can at least tag her in the pictures instead and show how much you care! Source: Condé Nast Traveler
  12. The 'Bigg Boss' finale is all set to take place on our TV screens tonight. Three months of madness, controversies and insane drama is all coming to an end. While our favourites have been established long ago, the top 4 consists of Puneesh, the only commoner left in the house, along with Vikas Gupta, Shilpa Shinde and Hina Khan.

New post (Bigg Boss 11: Puneesh Receives A Special Romantic Gift From Bandagi On His Birthday) has been published on LFN - https://t.co/n92j8EqlKW pic.twitter.com/Y5Bn15h5eP — Nur Zahan (@nurzahanmumbai) December 27, 2017 The two have made their relationship official and want to take it ahead once he is out of the house. Shilpa Shinde is being touted as the winner but we cannot ignore that fact that Vikas and Hina are also strong competition. It doesn't come as a surprise, because compared to Shilpa's fame, Puneesh didn't really stand a chance to win anyway. However, his journey has been a fun roller coaster and he has proved his mettle in the show.
  13. In the big ol' movie called life, not all of us are Amitabh Bachchans. And that's okay. Some of us are perfectly happy being the Aamir Khans we are.

  14. Friends is a classic TV show, no one can deny that. You can watch any episode at any point on time and still be very entertained. I know I'm not the only one always watching the reruns on Comedy Central these days. Recently, it was voted as the greatest sitcom of all time, and honestly, no surprises there. But, you know what's surprising? There are still so many people in the world who haven't seen even a single episode of 'Friends'. This is all of us when someone tells us they've never seen 'Friends'. It's been 24 years since the show premiered, and finally, on New Year's Eve Netflix released all 10 seasons for streaming in the UK. The One with the Show Everyone's Been Asking Us to Add. — Netflix UK & Ireland (@NetflixUK) December 30, 2017 And, people have a lot of thoughts. Let's see everyone's first impressions of the greatest sitcom of all time, shall we? Fair warning – This may make you start another binge-watch session of the entire show. So first things first... my god the hair — Daniel Faulkner (@TheDanFaulkner) January 5, 2018 Accurate description? Watching Friends for the first time ever. Like Chandler and Rachel, Hate Ross, Joey creeps me out, Phoebe's fun in a scary way. And why does everyone mock Monica for trying to keep a clean, organized home? — Ellen Natalie (@EllenNatalie87) January 7, 2018 Well, Ross just sucks. Watching through Friends for the first time. Ross is a monster. What is Rachel seeing in him — Bee Wakefield (@Bee_Wakefield) January 5, 2018 Just really sucks. I'm watching Friends all the way through for the first time and Ross is an absolute ass. WHY DO PEOPLE LIKE HIM? — Becky ð¾ (@Blupye) January 4, 2018 But, they were just on a break. I'm watching friends for the first time and for fucks sake can we just end the Ross/Rachel thing either way? Even when he's getting married to someone else we gotta do it? — Etruscan she-wolf (@chingchongcw) January 3, 2018 There's appreciation for the famous clothes. watching #friends properly for the first time.....I just want all the outfits minus the awful shoes pic.twitter.com/G0Ux0aX1Se — alisha (@alishajordanXO) January 9, 2018 And obviously, Monica. no offence but Monica Geller deserves Rachel Green level appreciation and attention. pic.twitter.com/KbBKF9BIhR — minnie (@minmakesmusic) January 4, 2018 People caught onto that early. Watching Friends on Netflix and it's basically just nipples — Big Ron Bentham OBE (@UncleRBenson) January 9, 2018 We want answers. Watching FRIENDS on Netflix and I have questions: 1) was there no room in the wardrobe budget to purchase bras? 2) how cold were those sets? — Blake Northcott™ â­ï¸ (@BlakeNorthcott) October 31, 2017 Yay, more hate for Ross. Watching Friends for the first time n all I can say is that Ross is an absolute turnip — ⣠Annie ⣠(@justmagica_l) January 6, 2018 Same. Watching Friends with the boyfriend for the first time. His reaction when Ross says “Rachel” instead of “Emily” ðððð pic.twitter.com/a4z9tOIjeu — Ellyn Tyler (@MissEllynphant) November 26, 2017 That's just a normal night for me. There's an episode of Friends where a group of 26 year olds are shocked that they drank 5 bottles of wine between 7 people over an entire evening and honestly that's way more unrealistic than the massive apartment thing. — Rebecca Manning Reid (@RebeccaCNReid) January 9, 2018 What kind of monster skips the into to Friends? Why, when I'm watching Friends, does Netflix ask if I'd like to 'Skip the intro'? Erm, no I want to sing along and do the clap to the intro like the melt I am?? — connor. (@connxrriding) January 9, 2018 You just gotta do it. If you don't drop everything to do the ðð¼ðð¼ðð¼ðð¼ in the friends theme song why even bother watching it ? — Alli Hutchison (@alli__hutchison) January 10, 2018 And, all of us summed up in one tweet. New year, same episodes of Friends I keep rewatching — Netflix Canada (@Netflix_CA) January 1, 2018
  15. How many times are you going to buy the same game? Every year, the makers of FIFA improve the graphics a little, tweak how fast everyone is running, put a different legend on the cover and sell it as a completely new game. On the other hand, there is an entire industry of indie (short for independent) games that strive to create refreshing gameplay and they are made by people who love games as much as you do, instead of those who exploit your love for games. The Mindset Of Corporations That Make AAA Games Games like FIFA, Assassin's Creed and Uncharted are referred to as AAA games. These games tend to have 3D graphics with huge open-world spaces and a dramatic storyline. They have high budgets (hundreds of millions of dollars), short production cycles and are made by big teams (400-600 people) that are organised within a corporate hierarchy. The problem is that because of the extravagant amount of money involved, the sales and marketing department ends up making some of the game design decisions. And anything made specifically for the masses is almost sure to lack depth. © Wikimedia Commons AAA games rarely take risks, they follow a textbook formula to get a textbook outcome. Psychologists are hired to ensure that the game creates a mental reward system in the player's brain so that the player keeps coming back to play. A lot of hand-holding is involved because anything too challenging might deter the player from getting addicted. The companies behind AAA games aim to create a franchise that they can flesh out year after year, i.e. quantity trumps quality. The corporations are playing their own game – a numbers game where players are treated as data points on a graph. The sequel of a AAA game tends to have the same basic gameplay with a new story. Unlike movies, games require more than a fresh story to qualify as a new experience for the player. Specifically, they require unique gameplay and that's where indie games shine. Enter Indie Games Indie games are characterized by their passion for innovation. They tend to have longer production cycles than AAA games because they're created by independent studios (5-50 people) or even individuals. Indie games tend to focus on gameplay. Everyone remembers Mario, Contra and Duck Hunt, simple 2D games, yet they kept us entertained for hours. These games were not independently developed when they came out but they had the honesty that retail titles seem to have lost over the years. Indie games are trying to replicate that kind of honesty in gameplay. Additionally, indie game makers are not afraid to take a chance. They experiment with dark themes, minimalistic artwork and non-verbal storytelling. It is the raw nature of these games that attracts players to them. © Nintendo Independent game makers are often people who dreamt of designing a game when they were 10-years-old and spent most of their life making small prototypes of their dream game. Similar to independent films and music, independent game makers think past the financial aspect, they put their heart and soul to create something that they care about. Their generation was the first one to play video games. This nostalgia factor is why most indie game makers draw influence from Mario and Zelda. It is unfortunate, then, that these people find it the hardest to get their games funded, regardless of format, size and theme. It's hard to find funding because they don't care about the numbers game. Their mindset is the polar opposite to that of the corporations – they want to make the player feel something that they've never felt before. This War of Mine Consider the game, 'This War of Mine', created by 11 bit studios. AAA games have strengthened their bottom line by normalising war and death in the developing minds of children. The premise of so many mainstream games (Counter Strike, Call of Duty to name a few) is that you get to shoot an inordinate number of people. But, 'This War of Mine' dares to represent war for what it really is. In 'This War of Mine', you control a small group of innocent civilians who are stuck in a derelict house in the middle of a warzone. Your objective is to make sure these civilians survive the war by making beds for them to sleep, securing the house, scavenging nearby buildings for resources and trading valuable resources for food, medicines or bandages in case someone is hurt when rogue survivors try to break into your house to rob it. © 11 bit studios This is a vastly different experience than blindly pressing the left mouse key until all enemy soldiers are dead. The gameplay encourages empathy and creates an environment for the player to bond with each one of the civilians. I've played this game and I remember a civilian dying of starvation on my watch. Nothing I played in the past affected me in the way this event did. The designers intended for me to hit the pause button and reflect on what had happened. I didn't just witness it, 'This War of Mine' made me feel the cost of war and the frailty of life. There are so many path-breaking indie games. If you like solving puzzles, Jonathan Blow, a veteran indie game designer, has you covered. 'Braid' and 'The Witness', both made by Jon Blow, are two of the most beautiful, challenging and minimalistic puzzle games ever made. 'One Finger Death Punch' is a small two-finger action video game by Silver Dollar Games, where you control a ninja and all you can do is click the right arrow to punch/kick right and the left arrow to punch/kick left. The description may sound mundane but 'One Finger Death Punch' is one of the most ruthlessly challenging and visually entertaining games I've ever played. If you like mystery and absurdity, play 'INSIDE', by developer Playdead. It's tough to even describe 'INSIDE' but it has won the British Academy Games Award for Game Design and deserves every bit of it. Here's a trailer: Special Challenges For The Underdog It's ironic that indie games are held to higher standards than AAA games despite being a lot cheaper. Consider another indie masterpiece, 'The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth', a two-dimensional rogue-like game made by Edmund McMillen and produced by Nicalis, in where a mother tries to sacrifice her son (controlled by the player) to prove her faith in God. That's how the game starts! It was a hit when it first came out in 2014 and over the course of time; two expansions have been released that have almost quadrupled the number of features in the previous games. Anything less and the fans would've accused McMillen of being lazy and taking them for granted, something that has happened on numerous occasions for other games. Indie games are similar to start-ups in this respect. They can't be a little better than every other game on the market, they have to be revolutionary to be noticed. Conclusion Video games have been a part of popular culture for quite some time and since the very beginning, there has been a raging debate, “Can video games ever be works of art?” The debate draws a parallel between sports and games. Are the rules of cricket a work of art? Is playing cricket an artistic process? If not, then games aren't and will never be works of art. But, on second thought, art is an expression of the artist's vision and it's intended to make the viewer experience an emotion. And isn't that exactly what 'This War of Mine' is?
  16. PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan said on Friday that the state of merit prevails when the institutions are strong in a country. The PTI chief was addressing a ceremony in Peshawar, where he said that the Sharif brothers have been ruling Punjab since 19 years but one can take a look at the state of Punjab police. Imran said that in Kasur 12 rape cases emerged, whereas, in a incident of similar nature in Dera Ismail Khan, eight out of nine suspects were arrested by the KP police. On Jan 11, Imran Khan said that his "tigers" will join Dr Tahirul Qadri when he begins his grand protest against the government on January 17. The PTI chief said that the people have stopped trusting the government and police, adding that when trust on the institutions ends then people take to streets to protest.
  17. There is a reason why Potterheads constitute the biggest fandom in the world. It's a simple reason - they care. They might have missed out on their Hogwarts letter at the age of 11 (how on earth is an owl supposed to come inside anyway, with all the locked doors and windows in apartments these days), but it does not mean they haven't gone to Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft and Wizardry, no Sir! When it comes to anything to do with Hogwarts, they don't rest till it's resolved. Case in point, the latest bowtie controversy. © Harry Potter Wiki Fandom Before you disapparate to Google, let us quickly get you up to speed. Before taking off on his broomstick to one of his flights of fancy inside the castle, a 'fashionably curious' Potterhead had a rather unusual question about the Hogwarts uniform. Without indulging in the oft-resorted-to practice of making guesses, in a rather Hermione-inspired move, he chose to find things out on his own. Let's not forget that we might not have access to the restricted section of the library, but we do have Twitter. © Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone He wanted to know whether bowties are allowed as a part of the Hogwarts uniform if a student does not want to wear regular ties. Such a pure-blood question, right? But now that we come to think of it, hell, we should have had that question first! © Twitter To our surprise, in a move reminiscent of Professor McGonagall's predisposition towards adherence to rules, Rowling responded what we translated to be "Eh, not really, no". Next thing you know, Twitter explodes. In a display of resistance, Potterhead-Twitterati decided to delve deep into what they do best: digging up references to resolve an issue. © Twitter They persevered. No giving up here, not yet. © Twitter There were some solid arguments, we must say, like Vidad Treepens here. © Twitter They were 'Newt' going to give up easily, thank you very much. © Twitter JKR had to step up to defend her argument, and reason with the anxious Potterheads. © Twitter We think Rowling had momentarily underestimated the still-at-its-peak craze when it comes to the Wizarding World. However, she had an epiphany soon. © Twitter Twitterati had a gala time coming up with hilarious reactions that it led to, and some more pertinent questions. © Twitter Moral of the story: Bowties are cool. Also, everyone should be allowed to wear what they want to. Please don't make Luna Lovegood start a revolution, now. P.S. Potterheads remain the biggest fandom ever. After all this time, you ask? Always.
  18. How many times have you tried to walk on water but fell on your face? Probably more times than you'd like to admit. Time and again, we have heard about some magician in a different part of the world, walking on water, only to find out later that it was an illusion. Unfortunately, we accepted this as a defeat and thought that our entire lives, we'd have to make do with glass/acrylic platforms like these. © Alibaba But today, we have some excellent news for you in this regard. You can FINALLY walk on water and you don't have to learn any crazy tricks for the same. All you need is a simple ingredient that is readily available everywhere. What is that, you ask? *drumrolls please* It's cornstarch. © Amazon Yup, that ingredient that might be sitting on your kitchen shelf as you read this. via GIPHY If this is how your expression is right now, then fear not. Some people are here to showcase this miracle to you. The students at the Mechanical Engineering Department at Lamar University in Texas, US conducted a small experiment that will blow your mind. They mixed a bunch of corn starch with water. Why? Because the substance thus created shows the properties of non-Newtonian fluids. Non-Newtonian fluids are those that are solid if you apply a sudden force on to it and turn liquid if you apply a steady, slow force. And with a video, they have taken the entire world by storm. Have a look: But before you close this article and rush to try it out, we'd like to ask you to calm your horses down. Apparently, these students had to use around 900 kg of cornstarch to conduct this super fun experiment. And we are guessing that is not what you've got in your kitchen right now. But if you REALLY want to give it a shot, you can create a smaller version: Now go and (somewhat) fulfill your childhood dream. You can thank us later!
  19. While it's true that all life-altering decisions are taken cautiously, sometimes we like to indulge in precarious pleasures, don't we? Astrology is one of them. It's like a blow up doll tbh- not necessary but you can definitely have a lot of fun with it when it's around! If you look at it objectively though, astrology is an unreliable source of information but if the star alignment is accurately wished upon or studied, you can figure compatibility meters through it (at least that's what they say!). Each sun sign is unique with their qualities and interests and they all give us certain perspectives that help us identify different capabilities in others. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Sometimes, it's quite indulgent and fun to recognise romantic compatibilities between different sun signs. This also includes how sexually compatible each sun sign is with the other. If nothing else, it tells you what your partner, from a specific sun sign, likes to indulge in. If there is any truth to it, well mazel tov! If we're talking about what women really want or enjoy in bed, astrology can help a little. Each zodiac's different from the rest. Although it's not a hidden fact that women love intimacy and foreplay in the bedroom, they also have individualistic desires that are different for each sun sign. Don't abide by all astrological rules when it comes to women though. Although generically each sun sign may be similar but a woman's wants and needs depend entirely on her. But because we're suckers for devouring everything under the sun, we're gonna spell out what women love in bed, according to their sun signs. Thank us later? Aries An Aries woman's tag line is no games, just sports and her sport is taking charge and getting instant gratification. She dislikes emotional mind games when it comes to *** and doesn't want to bring in a moment of dullness or boredom. She can play rough but don't force that on her, let her make her own call. Compatible Signs: Scorpio, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius, Gemini and Aries. Easy Turn On: Aries women are usually a bit hot-headed but they calm down very quick too. Due to their temperament, they hold a lot of tension in their heads and they love a head massage every once a while. So if you want to turn her on bad, just massage her head gently, play with her hair or give them a gentle (or maybe rough) pull while doing her. © Facebook/Chitrangada Singh Taurus Taurean women just hate the idea of a chase and they prefer men doing the leg work, to make things easier. She's very indulgent in sensual and romantic pleasures so you may not want to go completely hardcore on her. Set the mood ablaze with some champagne, chocolate covered strawberries or draw her a nice and sexy bath with some exfoliating bath salts and she's yours. Also, maybe do it on a nice romantic jazz number with her? Compatible Signs: Pisces, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, Sagittarius and Scorpio Easy Turn On: Usually her erogenous zone are the nape of her neck and her throat. You'll drive her wild if you bite, suck, kiss, lick or even gently choke her throat. © Facebook/Anushka Sharma Gemini Gemini woman love adventure. Take her to strange random places to have *** in and she'll be all up for it. In fact, they seek partners according how open to sexual adventures they are because Gemini's are quite free-spirited with their sexual energy and have no hangs ups or inhibitions. Dirty talk and flirting every now and then is their arsenal because a good amount of mental stimulation is important to them. Compatible Signs: Aquarius, Libra, Aries, Leo, Sagittarius and Scorpio Easy Turn On: A Gemini woman's biggest erogenous zone is her hand. Bite, nibble or suck on her fingers and watch her go crazy. Their arms are a sensitive area too, so maybe swiftly graze her arms with your fingers during foreplay. While in bed, start with a backrub, going down her arms and give her a sensual back and arm massage. © Facebook/Sonam Kapoor Cancer Cancerian women aren't very open to sexual endeavours due to their own fears and insecurities of opening up in bed. You really need to coax her for her to ease up and give in. Usually they feel safe and secure with men who are emotional, sensitive and make them comfortable in bed and once they get comfortable they're open to almost anything. Make her feel safe and relaxed and the best way to do that is to lure her with some good food! Compatible Signs: Aquarius, Capricorn, Virgo, Pisces, Taurus, Sagittarius and Scorpio Easy Turn On: Foreplay is easy with a Cancer gal because her erogenous zones are her breasts and nipples. Lightly stoke her breasts, cup them, squeeze them, lick and bite her nipples and she'll never forget your name. © Facebook/Katrina Kaif Leo Leo women love taking the lead in bed and taking a bow after the show is done because they love to shine and be the star. Even though a Leo woman's libido is sufficiently self-driven, a little push from her appreciative partner goes a long way. Oh, and one more thing, moan in bed while she's doing what she does best and you're golden! Compatible Signs: Libra, Gemini, Aries, Aquarius, Sagittarius Easy Turn On: Leo women are ruled by the heart, which they treasure most promisingly. Try putting your ear to a Leo woman's heart when she climaxes and you'll see what we mean! Her spine though is the biggest turn on for her in bed. Run your fingers, a feather or even graze her spine with your nails and watch her tingle with pleasure and joy. © Facebook/Jacqueline Fernandes Virgo Virgo women will never initiate *** or try not to, because they really don't know how to, but the bright side is that they're quick learners. They read up and research a lot on what they really want to try in bed but are a little apprehensive when practicality comes into question. What you can do is, make an effort by making them comfortable and they will certainly open up and try every little trick in the book they've read up on. Don't forget to pay attention to detail. They love that! Compatible Signs: Taurus, Capricorn, Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio Easy Turn On: Virgo women suppress their emotions quite a bit and in the spiritual realm, suppressed feelings are directly correlated to the digestive system and the stomach. Since they store all their pent up emotions there, their stomach is the most sensitive part of their body. Take some ice and run it all over their stomach while in bed with them. That feeling will not only drive them wild but all the pent-up emotion will actually lead them to an amazing orgasm. © Facebook/Kareena Kapoor Libra Libran women may come across as uptight and vanilla but they really aren't. You really need to make an effort to let her know you're worth her time. Like treating her to sophisticated dinners, buying some sexy lingerie, flowers or ever perfumes, will definitely make her want you more. Yeah, she's classy and a bit materialistic but once she opens up to you, she's a fireball in bed. She will definitely not shy away from trying just about anything under the sun to please you, if she's head over heels in love with you. Compatible Signs: Aries, Gemini, Sagittarius, Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio Easy Turn On: Libran women love anything to do with the butt. She's a sucker for doggy style and will willingly serve you her butt on a silver platter, while you two are at it. She wouldn't even mind a finger or two inside her a**, deriving some crazy sensual pleasures out of it. Her best stress reliever is a butt massage. So you know what to do if she seems uptight. © Facebook/Nargis Fakhri Scorpio Being the most sexual sign of the zodiac, Scorpion women don't like anything plain or vanilla. They're actually freaks in bed and they'll probably teach things you've never tried in bed before. Their sexual deviance comes at a price though, since they struggle with stuff that's taboo, as their sexual appetite is always at a high. They're also seem like sexual predators (for lack of a better word) since they look for men to seduce, instead of allowing themselves to give in to the game of seduction. Downside of having *** with a Scorpio? They are possessive lovers and you will never get enough and will always want to go back for more. Bad idea if you're trying to end a relationship with her but can't because the *** is on fire! Compatible Signs: Pisces, Capricorn, Taurus, Aries, Leo, Sagittarius Easy Turn On: A Scorpio woman's erogenous zone are her genitals! She's a big sucker for oral *** and if you use that tongue well down there, she might even fall in love with you for life! © Facebook/Aishwarya Rai Sagittarius This woman is a lot of fun in bed and will make every lovemaking session into an adventure. Free-spirited and independent, Sagi women hate being tied down, even in bed (not literally though). They love exploring and trying different fun things. You will love her spontaneity. She's open to quickies in a park or a public place and she's probably the current president of the mile high club! One thing that gets to her is boredom and that's the reason she moves from one man to another, too quickly just so she doesn't get bored or life doesn't get too monotonous. If you have her interest, you have her for a while. Just don't let it get boring. Compatible Signs: Libra, Leo, Gemini, Aries, Sagittarius, Aquarius, Cancer, Capricorn Easy Turn On: Her thighs are her biggest turn on. Grab her by the thighs while in bed and you'll make her go wild. The best thing to do though? Put your head in-between her legs and gently kiss, lick and suckle on her thighs, before you make it home. She'll also love it if you grab her by the hip if you want to take her to bed. © Facebook/Yami Gautam Capricorn Capricorn women may seem prudish, 'together' and proper when you meet them but they're completely the opposite in bed! You just need to bring out their inner animal, or pull them out of their disciplined demeanour. She likes winning at everything, so why should *** be any different for her. She may not enjoy PDA or being slobbered with affection but court her sensually and she's going to give you a chance for sure. Make sure your stamina is on point though. She loves a man with good stamina. Compatible Signs: Pisces, Scorpio, Virgo, Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Sagittarius Easy Turn On: The skin on the back of the knees is known to be a super sensitive erogenous zone for a Capricorn woman. By grazing your hands over it gently, you can literally make her go weak in the knees! Give her a slow sensual leg massage which covers her knees too. She'll love you for it. © Facebook/Deepika Padukone Aquarius They gorge on mental stimulation rather than physical stimulation. Give their brain a nice massage and you'll get along like a house on fire. They love being teased but don't give in completely too. They like exploring newer, kinkier things and are open to the likes of Tantric ***, Kamasutra, S&M and other daring fetishes. Not all Aquarians crave ***. They mostly look for people who can captivate their minds and make them laugh. Compatible Signs: Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aries, Aquarius Easy Turn On: Go for her calves and ankles in the bedroom, especially while you're in a 69 with her. Massage her calves simultaneously and you'll be amazed at the results. © Facebook/Shruti Hassan Pisces She's unforgettable in bed, that's because she's one imaginative and soulful soul, in the sack. She's easygoing and laidback and sometimes she may use *** as an escape. She's also quite intuitive and will know exactly what her partner wants or needs in bed. Her oral skills are on point too which is also one prominent reason for her being unforgettable! She won't chase you though, because she's not much of a chaser, so you may have to be a bit persuasive with her. Once you win her trust over, you have her for good, which will also make it difficult for her to say no to things you would want her to do in bed. Compatible Signs: Scorpio, Cancer, Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo Easy Turn On: Focus foreplay on a Pisces's feet since they're the most sensitive part of her body. Suck and nibble on her toes or give her a good foot massage for her to squirm with pleasure! © Facebook/Kangana Ranaut So if you think you're dating the right woman and want to spice things up in bed a tad, figure what sun sign she is and take the heat up a notch! Of course each woman, regardless of her sun sign, may react differently to different stimuli but if you've cracked what she really wants and likes in bed, you're good to go!
  20. Do you know how SpaceX came into existence? Right from his childhood, through books and comics, Elon was fascinated by the idea of sending people on other planets, making humanity a multi-planetary species. At first, he thought of buying a rocket to send a greenhouse to Mars to see if plants could grow there. He thought the best place to buy a “cheap” enough rocket for this task was from Russia, so off he went to try and buy some. He wanted to turn Cold War Russian missiles into interplanetary rockets. What he quickly learned was that the rockets were not cheap and thus he abandoned the idea. Then what? He switched to what is known as the “first principle thinking”, which is actually going deep into the basics of how rockets are built. © AZ quotes Back in 2012 in an interview, Elon Musk told Chris Anderson of Wired magazine that it was a lack of affordable technology--and the high cost, which was the result of some "pretty silly things" in the aerospace industry, like using legacy rocket technology from the 1960s. So, Elon decided to build the cheap ones with the help of better technology. Anderson said: I've heard that the attitude is essentially that you can't fly a component that hasn't already flown. Musk replied: Right, which is obviously a catch-22, right? There should be a Groucho Marx joke about that. So, yeah, there's a tremendous bias against taking risks. Everyone is trying to optimize their ass-covering. Right there is the six-word line we're talking about - bias against a risk that everyone is “trying to optimize their ass-covering.” People get stuck producing a legacy product because they can't risk innovation at the cost of their profit models suffering. In our personal lives, it could be that colleague who is afraid of following what really matters to him or her. It could be a dream job or moving to a new place or being your own boss by choosing entrepreneurship over a 9 to 5 lifestyle. © Career Attraction It could also be like being stuck in a lousy relationship just because you are afraid of living alone, even when you are living with less than what you deserve. In the end, we are all a little bit afraid to leave our comfort zones and all we need is a little inspiration at the right time. You need to cast aside your fears, ready yourself to enter an uncomfortable zone, and accept the chance you may fail. That is life and that's how you move on and make it better. Stop optimizing your ass-covering, instead, start optimizing your opportunities and you will see the sun shining brightly again in your life, on your side.
  21. In 2016, the Supreme Court went ahead with a decision that was bound to create outrage across the country. It declared that it is mandatory for all cinema halls to play the national anthem before the screening of films. The practice would "instill a feeling within one, a sense of committed patriotism and nationalism," the bench had ruled. No points for guessing that the question that loomed in everyone's head was- Do we really need to sing the national anthem in a theatre to prove our patriotism? Despite the widespread outrage, it was being practiced and those who didn't follow it were criticized and some were even beaten up. It was also observed that people “cannot be forced to carry patriotism on their sleeves”. The Centre then decided to ask the Supreme Court to modify its earlier order. © BCCL And finally, the Supreme Court has now modified its order and declared that it is now optional for cinema halls to play the national anthem. It has also directed the government to frame the final guidelines on the order in six months. And of course, this decision was welcomed with open hearts by the Internet: 1. Watching a film now without a compulsory display of patriotism is very, very welcome. Await the order. #NationalAnthem — Karuna Nundy (@karunanundy) January 9, 2018 2. This Man Got No Chill. "Supreme Court modifies its order on #NationalAnthem, says it is not mandatory in cinema halls." Finally the logic prevails. Jisko zyada desh bhakti hai Wo movie se pehle ghar pe gaa ke aa sakta hai. — Rahul (@desicovfefe) January 9, 2018 3. Can't Agree More. Please stop with the rhetoric of, "soldiers standing at the border, why can't you stand at the theater". Patriotism is standing up for the #NationalAnthem on their own. Nationalism is forcing someone to stand up for the Anthem. Nationalism will take the country nowhere. — Priyadarshan Kempraj (@priyankemp) January 8, 2018 4. Rejoice!

  22. Whether it's cricket, hockey or any other sport, the arch-rivalry between India and Pakistan has a tendency to send tempers soaring and delivers over-the-top excitement during their clashes. While the two countries might not see eye-to-eye, the players from both the nations share mutual respect and a great rapport off the field. A similar moment has emerged in badminton as well. Pusarla Venkata Sindhu and Carolina Marin share one of the most exciting rivalries in the international badminton circuit. The duo have fought fierce battles in the past and rarely tend to hide their emotions against each other on the court. Their final match during the Rio Olympics where Marin emerged on top remains one of the most memorable encounters in badminton history.

But, while the organisers have been trying to cash in on their fierce rivalry, Sindhu and Marin recently showed everyone that friendship is beyond all rivalries. It's much more than just badminton ðâ¤ï¸ @pvsindhu1 A post shared by Carolina Marin (@carolinamarin) on Jan 8, 2018 at 8:00am PST The Spanish shuttler shared a selfie with her arch-rival Sindhu on Instagram to the sheer delight of the Indian fans. The post, which has been liked over 16,000 times, also carried a beautiful caption: "It's much more than just badminton". While everyone loved Marin's post, Indian men's shuttler HS Prannoy poked fun at the Spaniard after asking her to post the selfie she took with the 25-year-old. If she can smash it.. She can very well twirl it ð@CarolinaMarin having fun at the shoot this morning to promote #TelanganaHandloom#HuntersArmy#Hunters4Handloom pic.twitter.com/KoHuGGDSXV — HyderabadHunters (@Hyd_Hunters) January 9, 2018 As the franchises aim to seal this year's title, Marin's proficiency will be the key for Hyderabad Hunters while Sindhu and Prannoy will be pivotal for the Chennai Smashers and Ahmedabad Smash Masters respectively.
  23. After a ruthless winning run in 2017, the rampaging Indian cricket team cut a sorry figure after suffering their first defeat, in what promises to be a challenging year away from home. A 72-run loss against South Africa for the world's no. 1 Test team wasn't the kind of result the Indian fans were hoping for, but many saw coming. A Newlands wicket that heavily favoured the seam bowlers surely fostered compelling cricket - the kind that could match the excitement of ODIs or even T20s. For once, it was great to see the bowlers deciding the game and the batsmen - who usually go hammer and tongs at the ball - ducking for cover. 1st Sunfoil Test India vs South Africa 2018 - Day 4 Fall of Wickets Complete Video Here https://t.co/mPXUYomaOT #INDvSA #IndvsSA #SAvIND #SAvsIND #Philander #ProteaFire #FreedomSeries #SAvIND #SAvsIND #BhuvneshwarKumar #TeamIndia #BBL #NZvPAK #AUSvENG #BBL2017 #IPLRetention #IPL pic.twitter.com/M6HvRIDjI0 — CB007 (@CB007CB) January 9, 2018 In fact, the footage of the fast bowling from both the teams can happily replace adrenaline in hospitals. The fourth day alone featured 18 wickets and six of them went to Vernon Philander who romped to his career-best Test figures before sealing the game for his side. Many feel that the star-studded Indian batting line-up could have done better and they wouldn't be wrong. Apart from Hardik Pandya's breezy knock of 93 runs, none of his teammates were able to post a fifty in Cape Town. In fact, there were ten single-digit scores posted by the Indian batsmen across the two innings. © AP Chasing 208 runs, the Indian batsmen had enough time at their disposal to pull off a crucial win. But, what they didn't have was the patience and skill to negate the fiery bowling attack of Philander, Morne Morkel, Kagiso Rabada who summoned their usual menace in the absence of the injured Dale Steyn. However, despite the loss, the game had plenty of positives for the Virat Kohli brigade. If their batting - which has been India's strong suit for quite some time now - faltered, the sight of a young bowling attack rising to the occasion surely gave the fans something to cheer for. Swinging To Success © AP Ahead of the series, both Kohli and Coach Ravi Shastri reiterated the need of taking 20 wickets in the game to win overseas. And, given India's surprise team selection, the visitors couldn't have started the game any better. Making full use of his increased pace and devious swing, Bhuvneshwar Kumar struck consistently in his first three overs to send the top three South African batsmen back into the hut. A great spell of opening bowling by @BhuviOfficial. One of the most lethal ones I have seen of late. The first session undoubtedly belonged to #TeamIndia. C'mon boys, let's get a few more ;) #SAvIND pic.twitter.com/s9dILKEp23 — Suresh Raina (@ImRaina) January 5, 2018 The likes of Dean Elgar, Aiden Markram and Hashim Amla were dismissed early on as the Proteas were left reeling at 12/3. While India eventually failed to capitalise on the early breakthrough, it was undeniably the kind of start you'd hope for in an away game. He could have easily notched up a five-for in the first innings, if wasn't for India's shoddy slip fielding. With the opposition batsmen being cautious against him, Bhuvi could only manage the scalps of Keshav Maharaj and Morne Morkel in the second innings. He finished the game with a tally of six wickets at the expense of 120 runs to his name. India might have lost, but Bhuvi's prolific showing promises great things in the next two games. The Devil-May-Care Innings © AP When former greats like Sachin Tendulkar and Lance Klusener tip someone to make a difference, the chances are that they actually do. Kohli's bold decision to include Hardik Pandya had already raised a few eyebrows with many questioning his spot in the playing XI. But, that's nothing new for Pandya. The dashing youngster thrives on challenges and as it turned out, he did make a difference. Hardik Pandya didnt just attack. This was a sensible, cleverly played innings. Has risen many notches as a player. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) January 6, 2018 With seven wickets gone and just 92 runs on the scoreboard, the Indian cricket team pretty much dead and buried in the first innings. But, just when everyone had given up, Pandya's devil-may-care attitude - reminiscent of AB de Villiers' counter-attack on Day 1 - took the fight to the Proteas in style. The 24-year-old stitched a crucial 99-run partnership with Bhuvi for the eighth wicket to save India early blushes. One's stature as a player increases when one scores overseas and against an attack comprising Steyn, Rabada, Morkel & Philander when everyone else has struggled, Hardik Pandya shows how it is done. Privilege to watch that 93. — Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) January 6, 2018 His knock of 93 runs that came off just 95 deliveries included 14 fours and a six. There were upper-cuts, pull shots and brutal down-the-ground strokes which soon got the Proteas on the backfoot. The marauding batsman might have missed his second consecutive Test hundred, but he did his job by propelling India to a face-saving total of 209 runs in the first innings. A Sensational Debut © AP After growing leaps and bounds in limited-overs cricket, Jasprit Bumrah was handed his maiden Test cap in Cape Town. But, just like Pandya, his selection ahead of experienced bowlers like Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav was also criticised. And, just like Pandya, the right-handed seamer proved his naysayers wrong with a brilliant bowling display. The ball that Bumrah bowled to get du Plessis out was one for the ages. Haven't seen an Indian bowler get bounce from a ball as full as that. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) January 8, 2018 With his maiden scalps being Virat Kohli in the IPL, Steve Smith in ODIs and David Warner in T20Is, there was only one way Bumrah could have further glorified that list - by making AB de Villiers his maiden Test wicket. At a time when AB and Faf du Plessis were busy repairing South Africa's innings, the Indian seamer ran through the defence of the former to give India a pivotal breakthrough in the first innings. Insane ball over in #SAvIND from Bumrah. pic.twitter.com/wYNAycOVZw — Robbie B (@cricketpunting) January 8, 2018 In the second innings, Bumrah improved his figures even further after dismissing the South African captain on an absolute cracker of a delivery. In his very next over, the 24-year-old struck again to dismiss Quinton de Kock before he could do much damage. His third wicket was once again De Villiers who was the last one to go back into the hut for the hosts. Bumrah's bowling impressed everyone, even those who doubted his selection. We won't be surprised if he gets selected for the second Test. Who's Missing Dhoni? © AP Ever since MS Dhoni's retirement from the longest version of the game, the Indian selectors and captain have instilled their faith in Wriddhiman Saha to carry on the duties of a wicket-keeper. His availability in the side provides India the luxury of a decent batsman and good wicket-keeper. While his batting skills might have eluded him in Cape Town, Saha surely made amends with his glove-work behind the stumps. His catch to get rid of Morne Morkel in the second innings made him the first-ever Indian wicket-keeper to effect 10 dismissals in a Test match. Most wicket-keeping dismissals in a #Test match: 11 - J Russell v SA, Johannesburg 1995 11 - ABD v PAK, Johannesburg 2013 10 - B Taylor v IND, Mumbai 1980 10 - A Gilchrist v NZ, Hamilton 2000 10 - @Wriddhipops, #INDvSA, CAPE TOWN 2018*#FreedomSeries #SAvIND #India #Cricket — Sam (@TheCricApp) January 8, 2018 In the process, the 33-year-old also went past Dhoni who held the previous best of a record nine dismissals against Australia in Melbourne in 2014. While all of Saha's dismissals came in the form of catches, Dhoni had one stumping to his credit. Saha also reached a personal milestone of taking five catches in each innings of a Test match for the very first time. This was a match to win but enough shown to say India can match up in the series. Bowlers superb today. @BhuviOfficial with the bat also. — Boria Majumdar (@BoriaMajumdar) January 8, 2018 Ahead of the highly-anticipated series, there was a lot of chatter around the Indian team being the strongest side to have ever toured the Rainbow Nation. Barring a mediocre batting display, Team India did look like one and came pretty close to pulling off a win in Cape Town. However, the narrow loss also signalled signs of resurgence and a great contest on cards in the remaining Tests.
  24. Saif Ali Khan has not only managed to carve a niche for himself as a mature actor over the years, he has done the same in terms of men's fashion in the country. He has only grown more and more sophisticated over the years, doing justice to the expectations out of his regal lineage. We have seen him transform into one of the most fashionable actors in the recent years. Staying true to his ever-evolving style statement, his latest airport look has broken the biggest stereotype that we were labouring under till now. For the longest time, the 'classic, vintage Indian gentleman' look has been ignored, because it was not perceived to be fashionable enough by the B-town. Enter Chhote Nawab with his 'I wear what I like' vibe and bam! The 80s is back with his classic outfit, minus the kitsch. © Viral Bhayani When was the last time you saw someone famous wearing a cotton shirt, tucked inside a pair of vintage, pleated, high-waisted trousers? Saif not only wears it, but he manages to give it such a statement edge that we can't help but marvel at it! © Viral Bhayani The blue and white Gingham pattern of the relaxed fit shirt goes perfectly with the cocoa-brown trousers. One thing that we must focus on is the fit of those trousers and the (higher-than-usual) waist. We bet no one else will dare put on their trousers at a level where Saif has fastened it. He justifies not having to always sport a slim and trim waistline, and somehow even makes it desirable using his impeccable sartorial sense! The pleats and fall of the trousers have an extreme high fashion edge to them, and they look like they will effortlessly blend in on a runway in Milan or Paris. © Viral Bhayani We love how he has accessorized his look, keeping it super casual and understated. The absence of a belt is a very clever move because it helps us focus on that impeccably tailored pair of trousers. Add to that the smart Oxfords in faded tan and that statement silver watch, and we get a look that spells utter sophistication. The bold blue-tinted 70s style sunglasses complete his look. © Viral Bhayani Well played, Mr Khan!
  25. You might recall that only recently The Tribune exposed a UIDAI security breach that allowed anyone and everyone who has 10 minutes and a mere Rs. 500 at their disposal, to get access to the Aadhaar details of 1 billion Indians. This news obviously didn't go down well with the citizens of the country and what followed was widespread outrage. That very day, UIDAI went ahead and took to their social media accounts and outright declared The Tribune's story a case of misreporting. Tribune's Story “Rs 500, 10 minutes, and you have access to billion Aadhaar details” is a case of misreporting. No biometric data breach @thetribunechd @rsprasad @ceo_uidai @timesofindia @firstpost @IndiaToday @ZeeNews — Aadhaar (@UIDAI) January 4, 2018 The nation was waiting for a clear explanation from UIDAI about this fiasco while their website went down for a while. But what has now happened has stirred the country once again. UIDAI has now filed an FIR against The Tribune and its reporter Rachna Khaira. The FIR also names Anil Kumar, Sunil Kumar and Raj, all of whom were mentioned in The Tribune report as people who were contacted by Khaira in the course of her reporting. Harish Khare, the Editor-in-chief of The Tribune commented on the whole matter through the Twitter handle of the newspaper.

Since you are the only one who is allowed to file FIRs, please do it. A thorough investigation of UIDAI needs to be initiated.

However, they did make it clear that they still firmly by their decision of filing the FIR. In the recent case of The Tribune's report in which an FIR is filed, an impression is being created in media that UIDAI is targeting the media or whistleblowers or “shooting the messenger”.
