  1. BAGHDAD: An Iraqi court has sentenced 16 Turkish women to death by hanging for joining Daesh, a judiciary spokesman said on Sunday. Iraq is conducting the trials of hundreds of foreign women who have been detained, with hundreds of their children, since August by Iraqi forces as Daesh strongholds crumbled. The central criminal court issued the sentences ?after it was proven they belong to the Daesh terrorist group and after they confessed to marrying Daesh elements or providing members of the group with logistical aid or helping them carry out terrorist attacks,? said Judge Abdul-Sattar al-Birqdar. All the verdicts are subject to appeal, he told Reuters. Thousands of foreigners have fought on behalf of Daesh in Iraq and Syria since at least 2014. Many foreign women came - or were brought - from overseas to join the militants. More than 1,300 women and children surrendered to Kurdish Peshmerga in August, after government forces expelled the jihadist group from the northern Iraqi city of Tal Afar. Their numbers have since swelled to about 1,700 as more foreign nationals surrendered or were captured during operations to root out the militants, according to aid officials. Another Turkish woman was sentenced to death last week and 10 others of various nationalities to life in prison, all for alleged Daesh membership. A German woman was sentenced to death last month for belonging to the group and a Russian fighter was also sentenced to death in Iraq last year for joining the hardline group. Iraq has handed over to Russia four women and 27 children suspected of having ties to the group, the foreign ministry said on Thursday, adding that they were ?tricked? into joining the militants. Iraq declared victory in December over Daesh, which had seized control of nearly a third of the country in 2014. The group has been driven out of all population centers it once controlled on both sides of the Iraqi-Syrian border, but members have continued to carry out bombings and other attacks in Iraq.
  2. LAHORE: Police on Sunday arrested a man accused of torturing a minor maid employed at his house. The maid is now in the custody of the Child Protection & Welfare Bureau which said it has contacted its parents too. The department has announced to provide medical and legal aid to the minor. According to neighbours, they found the maid crying on the road and took her to the police station. She was then handed over to child protection services. According to the minor, she was burnt and thrown out of her employer?s house. Tayyaba torture case: SC orders completion of trial by Feb 15 The apex court also discards appeal filed by judge Raja Khurram Zaman, challenging high court's rejection of compromise with parents of tortured minor A number of cases of abuse and torture of child maids have emerged in the past year throughout the country. In April last year, a 14-year-old maid, with visible torture marks on her body, was recovered from Lahore?s Muslim Town area. She alleged her employer and wife routinely beat her up. Another infamous case was that of Tayyaba where a sessions judge and his wife were alleged to have tortured the minor maid.
  3. Talking to newsmen here, Ahsan called the protest rebellion against the state and said the centre is also involved in creating the hoopla-Photo: File LAHORE: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Aitzaz Ahsan on Sunday blamed Punjab government and Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif for provoking protests against the arrest of Ahad Cheema, former director of Lahore Development Authority. Talking to newsmen here, Ahsan called the protest rebellion against the state and said the centre is also involved in creating the hoopla. Ashiana Housing Scam: Bismillah Engineering CEO remanded into NAB custody NAB calls Punjab government allegations in Ahad Cheema case ?baseless? ?They are not just favourites, they are brats,? Ahsan said about the Sharif brothers, adding that they want a judge like Justice Qayyum and a bureaucrat like Cheema. According to the National Accountability Bureau, Cheema by misuse of authority and with criminal intent, awarded a contract of the Ashiana-e-Iqbal project of approximately Rs14 billion to Lahore Casa Developers ? a joint-venture which was ineligible for the contract. He is also accused of receiving illegal gratification in the form of a 32-Kanal land valuing Rs30.09 million approximately from the owners of Paragon City (Pvt) Ltd. Cheema is currently in NAB custody on an 11-day remand. His arrest led to friction between NAB and the Punjab government which traded accusations after the arrest. A group of bureaucrats also resorted to protest after the arrest.
  4. For us common people, insurance means life insurance and health insurance, but celebrities have a few different assets that need some protection. Insuring themselves is important for celebs and who can blame them, tbh? We have Rihanna who has insured her legs for a whopping $1 million, because come on, look at her and her legs for days. #SOSTONED collection is finally out today!!! Thank you @manoloblahnikhq for another fun collaboration! Pictured above: "Purple Chalice" A post shared by badgalriri (@badgalriri) on Jul 6, 2017 at 5:45pm PDT Even David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo have their legs insured for $195 million amp $145 million. Twitter And, one of the most famous celebrities to get insurance on one of their body parts is none other than Jennifer Lopez. JLo has her butt insured for 27 million freaking dollars! #calibash #amoramoramor A post shared by Jennifer Lopez (@jlo) on Jan 21, 2018 at 1:24am PST Now, there's someone new joining her in this whole bum insurance thing. A weather presenter in Argentina has insured her world-famous bum for a whopping $100,000 to protect it, of course. Villa Carlos Paz âï¸ A post shared by Solci Perez #lachicadelclima (@lasobrideperez) on Feb 22, 2018 at 3:04pm PST Considered to be Argentina's sexiest weather girl, 24-year-old Sol Perez has also become somewhat of an international social media star, all thanks to her famous bum, and that's probably why it needed to be protected at all costs. El calor de Carlos Paz âï¸ A post shared by Solci Perez #lachicadelclima (@lasobrideperez) on Feb 15, 2018 at 3:43pm PST She presents the weather on the TyC Sports channel, but going by her Instagram pictures, she's more known for online presence than anything else. Along with her, he bum is also a star on social media, so therefore she found a company willing to offer up a suitably sizeable settlement for her most-prized asset. Mi piel no le teme a nada, disparame al corazón. A post shared by Solci Perez #lachicadelclima (@lasobrideperez) on Jan 25, 2018 at 8:30am PST She has also talked about how it wasn't easy to get her insurance worthy look. She has revealed that she gained around 10kgs after an intense workout regime, which was a combination of fitness and weightlifting that gave her tiny frame the best results. ð¿ð¿ð @bikinisbydonatellas A post shared by Solci Perez #lachicadelclima (@lasobrideperez) on Jan 9, 2018 at 7:38am PST While talking to The Mirror, she said, “I like the culture around fitness and the atmosphere of a gym. It is trendy to post workout pictures at the moment but I only share what I want others to see.”
  5. Sridevi's death is a loss that will haunt the entire nation for a very long time. The veteran actress passed away at the age of 54 last night in Dubai due to a cardiac arrest. She was there with her family for Mohit Marwah's wedding. Antara Marwahâ¤ï¸â¤ï¸ðð A post shared by Sridevi Kapoor (@sridevi.kapoor) on Feb 20, 2018 at 11:05am PST â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ A post shared by Sridevi Kapoor (@sridevi.kapoor) on Feb 21, 2018 at 8:30pm PST Like millions of her fans and the selected few who had the luxury of personally knowing her, Ram Gopal Varma is also deeply affected by her untimely demise. He took to social media today and expressed his sorrow in a heartfelt obituary note for the beautiful actress. "I have a habit of constantly dreaming and waking up every once in a while in the night to check out my cellphone and I suddenly saw a message that Sridevi is no more. I thought that either it is a nightmare or a hoax and I went back to sleep. An hour later, I woke up to check and there were around 50 messages informing me of the same. Back in the times when I was in engineering college in Vijayawada, I happened to see her first Telugu film 'Padaharella Vayasu'. I was awestruck with her beauty and I walked out of the theatre in a daze thinking that she cannot be a real person and she has to be some fantasy form who somehow has taken a human shape. Then I saw her various other films, all of which constantly created a higher bench mark of both her talent and her beauty. To me, she looked like some being who has come from some other world in the outer space as a favour to bless us for a little while for all the good we might have done in this world. She was like a creation of God which he does whenever he is in a very special mood as a very, very special gift to mankind.” #RIP evergreen beauty #sridevi ððð A post shared by sanjukta samanta (@sanjuktasamanta) on Feb 25, 2018 at 12:33am PST He also shared the details of his first meeting with her and what it made him feel. “My journey to Sridevi started when I was preparing for my debut film 'Shiva'. I used to walk from Nagarjuna's office in Chennai to a neighbouring street where Sridevi used to live and I used to just stand and watch Sridevi's house from outside her gate. I just could not believe that the goddess of beauty lives in that stupid looking house. I say stupid, because I believed that no man-made house deserved to house that beauty called Sridevi. I used to so desperately hope to catch a glimpse of her as she went in or out of her house. But sadly no such thing ever happened. And then after 'Shiva' released and became a big hit, a producer came to me and asked if I was interested in doing a film with Sridevi. I said "Are you mad or what? I will die to just see her, let alone make a film with her!" He arranged a meeting with her and took me to meet her at that very same house where I used to stand outside the gate and stare. At night, we went and as luck would have it, there was a power cut in her house. So I was sitting in her living room in candle light along with the producer waiting for the angel to appear and my heart was thumping like mad. Her mother told us she was busy packing as she was about to catch a flight to go to Mumbai. As we were waiting, every once in a while Sridevi was rapidly crossing the living room as she was moving from one room to another room in a rush to finish her packing even as she apologetically smiled at me for the delay. Every time she was appearing and disappearing in a flash and the director in me started slow motioning her and running her backward and forward for my visual pleasure. Finally, she came and sat in the living room, just said a mandatory few lines that she would very much like to work with me and then she left for Mumbai. I continued talking to her mother with enormous respect and awe because she actually gave birth to Sridevi. I went back to my place feeling like I was in the seventh heaven. The way Sridevi sat in front of me in the candle light got imprinted in my mind like an exquisite painting and with her image completely filling both my mind and my heart, I started writing Kshana Kshanam. Still in shocked can't believe really can't believe... you're my all time favourite since my childhood and you will be always my fav..no one can..love you forever #sridevi miss you #ripsridevi #Ø¥Ùا_ÙÙÙ_ÙØ¥Ùا_Ø¥ÙÙÙ_راجعÙÙ A post shared by @ iamfatima10_ on Feb 25, 2018 at 12:35am PST Talking about his dream coming true when he finally got the pleasure of working with her, he shared a few insights from that experience as well. “I wrote Kshana Kshanam with the one and only purpose so as to impress Sridevi. Kshana Kshanam was intended by me as a love letter to her. Throughout the making of Kshana Kshanam, I just could not take my eyes off her charm, her beauty, her personality and her demeanour was a new discovery for me. She had an invisible wall around her and she does not let anyone cross that. Behind that wall, she maintains her dignity and her self-respect and she never lets anyone inside. Also, during the course of working with her and observing her technique of acting, I began to understand more and more as a director about the nuances of performances and characterizations because for me, she formed the epitome of cinematic acting. Her popularity and stardom had to be seen to be believed. We were shooting for the climax in Nandyal for Kshana Kshanam and the whole town of Nandyal came to a standstill when they came to know that Sridevi was in town. Banks, government offices, schools, colleges, everything in town closed as everyone wanted to see Sridevi. She stayed in a traveller's bungalow in Nandyal and at a little distance, I was staying in another bungalow. There used to be a crowd of atleast 20,000 people around her bungalow throughout the night just staring at it. There were about 50 tough guys along with a 100 strong police force who used to continuously guard her. When we were at the location, we used to know that Sridevi started from her bungalow to come to location because we used to see a column of dust travelling towards us from the distance. The dust was due to the thousands of people running behind her car. I have never seen more of a super star and now, she just got extinguished. In the end, he closes the obituary with heavy, emotional words. Sridevi is the most beautiful and the most sensuous woman God ever created and I think he creates such exquisite pieces of art like her only once in a thousand years. Though she is no longer there, we, her directors, fortunately have her captured as a goddess of beauty in our cameras and our cinematic angel has now just become a divine angel. I thank God for creating Sridevi and I thank Louis Lumiere for creating the movie camera for giving us an opportunity to contain her forever. I still cannot believe that she is no more and I am lying in bed writing about my memories of her. I so hope I am still having a bad dream, but I know I am not. I hate Sridevi. I hate her for making me realise that she too is finally only just a human being. I hate that her heart too has to beat to live. I hate that she too has a heart which can just stop like anybody else's. I hate that I lived to see the messages informing me of her death. I hate God for killing her. And I hate Sridevi for dying. I love you Sri, wherever you are and I will always love you." Sridevi is survived by her husband and two daughters.
  6. You may think: The elimination of naturally-secreted oils on the face is a counter-intuitive process. While you're right (your skin needs these oils for over-all wellness), let's face it, excess oil production isn't a boon either.

To sum it up, it's all about striking a balance with oil production on the face. And believe us, these 10 best face washes for oily skin below will exactly solve this purpose for you.

  7. Many people believe the old saying that doctors are next to God on earth. Although in today's time, we might come across some doctors who seem to care more about money than their patients, but Dr. B. Ramana Rao is a living example of that very old saying. © Facebook Dr. Rao is famous for treating noted personalities like Amitabh Bachchan, late actor Dr. Rajkumar, Chief Minister and bureaucrats. But every week, on Sunday, the man is out doing something that not every doctor will have the heart to do. In a village clinic in T Begur, Bangalore, Dr. Rao treats patients free of cost, every Sunday. And by patients, we mean over thousands of them. People visit the clinic from a distance of over 100 km, and then, wait patiently in the queue, sometimes even longer than 12 hours. But their wait is always worth the wait. © Facebook He started this clinic in the 1970s and since then has served over 2 million patients for free. And if you are thinking that consulting is all that he does for free, we take pride in telling you that apart from attending to patients, he also provides them with the required medicines, nebulisation and injections and undertakes the complete diagnosis of the patients. Besides, free cataract surgery is also done at the clinic. Along they also serve food and give nutrition advice. © Facebook But providing such 'too good to be true' service is not an easy task. They spend an amount of Rs 2 lakhs per week to run the clinic. Most of it is out of his own pocket, however, he does receive some donations and brands like Himalaya have also come to his rescue in terms of providing the medicines. © Facebook However, if all this isn't enough to make you respect him then there's more. Dr. Rao has got around 700 toilets built in the surrounding villages. He also has adopted 50 schools in the city and gives books, uniforms and other study materials. No wonder he has been awarded many times before. And among his many accolades, he has been honoured with Padma Shri for medicine in 2010 and Dr. Abdul Kalam National Award for rural medical service in 2008. © Just Dial The best part is that now his wife and his two sons- Dr. Charit Bhograj and Dr. Abhijeet have joined him in this endeavor. You can have a look at all that he does in this video: People like Dr. Rao are rare and truly have a heart of gold. For him being successful not only meant earning money and leading a luxurious life, it also involved giving back to the society to the best of his abilities and for that, he has earned the world's respect.
  8. While washing your face regularly helps you keep it clean, that's only half the battle won. For healthy skin, you need to moisturize it regularly.

  9. The Oscars is around the corner, precisely one week away, and I am sure most of you will be thinking about this question right now. Who will be this year's Leonardo DiCaprio? Well, if you didn't think earlier, I am sure you will now. Yeah I know I am talking about something that happened 2 years ago. But, at least reminiscing that moment is better than reminding you guys about the epic goof-up that happened between 'Moonlight' and 'La La Land'. To refresh your memories, 'La La Land' was announced the Best Picture instead of 'Moonlight', giving the world another Steve Harvey moment. © twitter Anyway, the point is, this time our expectations from the nominations are quite high and given the killer line-up of nominees, we are confirmed that this year's Oscars is going to be one eventful night. While, people are discussing categories like Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress, there is one certain category that has been grabbing eyeballs like no one else. We are talking about the Best Animated Feature films. © DreamWorks Honestly, you are never too old to watch an animated movie, and when those movies are as exceptional as the ones mentioned here; you shouldn't bother thinking twice. So, before the world knows who will take the award home, let's check these nominations out and see if they truly deserve to be in the list or not. The Boss Baby Babies are cute! But this little fella here means only business…strict business. Honestly, a business suit with a briefcase is not an image you associate with a toddler, but he isn't any ordinary kid. This baby is a secret agent. Director Tom McGrath's hard work and efforts reflect in each frame of the movie. Alec Baldwin, Miles Bakshi, Lisa Kudrow, and Jimmy Kimmel among others, have done the voiceover for this movie. The Breadwinner Based on the best-selling novel by Deborah Ellis, 'The Breadwinner' touches base with the struggles of a young girl whose father gets unjustly arrested. The girl then decides to dress as a boy, so she can help support her mother, sister and younger brother. Angelina Jolie is the executive producer of this brilliant film. In the past couple of days, 'The Breadwinner' has earned many awards and we aren't surprised because the movie is damn good. It is directed by Nora Twomey. Coco I don't know if it's just me or you guys feel the same way too, but there is something about the Pixar movies that just weave magic with literally anything. Based on the original idea by director Lee Unkrich, 'Coco' narrates the story of a 12-year-old boy Miguel Rivera. Miguel gets accidentally transported to the land of the dead and then begins his journey to not only return among the living, but also to unearth certain secrets and find out where his true passion lies. Ferdinand Directed by Carlos Saldanha, 'Ferdinand' was based on Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson's children's book. The movie talks about a gentle bull who refuses to participate in bullfighting, but eventually is forced back into the fighting arena. However, Ferdinand decides to take matters in his own hands and not only escape himself but also help everyone else run away from the place, where they were kept. John Cena has lent his voice to the character of Ferdinand. Loving Vincent This is the most unusual and the most special film from the lot. Why? Because 'Loving Vincent' is the world's first fully oil painted feature film. Written and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, this movie is said to be an animated biographical drama that talks about the life of painter Vincent van Gogh. Interestingly, there are 65,000 frames in the movie and all of them are oil painting on canvas. Using the same technique as Van Gogh, this has been created by a team of over 100 painters. So folks! Do let us know which movie is your favourite.

[embed_video1 url=http://stream.jeem.tv/vod/2ecd07f7857ee63bf4bedf82089e1b61.mp4/playlist.m3u8?wmsAuthSign=c2VydmVyX3RpbWU9Mi8yNC8yMDE4IDg6MDI6NDYgUE0maGFzaF92YWx1ZT0xN1FXcS8wQzRwQ3NncTdkeGxFd1NBPT0mdmFsaWRtaW51dGVzPTYwJmlkPTE= style=center] Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor has hailed Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates for their role in development works in areas cleared from terrorists in Pakistan. In an interview with Arab News during a visit to its Dubai bureau, the DG ISPR said that there is no second opinion about Pakistan's relations with the two Gulf states and that Islamabad has a history of wonderful relationships with KSA and UAE. "This cooperation is increasing with every passing day, and we believe this cooperation is in the interest of not only Pakistan, but also the region," Ghafoor said. He said the development work in areas cleared by Pakistani forces has been "assisted phenomenally" by Saudi Arabia and the UAE. "When it comes to the development phase in the conflict area that Pakistani forces have cleared, the development work has been assisted phenomenally both by KSA and the UAE, especially in the social welfare field with hospitals and water supply schemes." Commenting on Pakistan's concerns with Afghanistan and situation along the border, the DG ISPR said the situation is different on either side of the Pak-Afghan border, contending that Pakistan has fought a war [on its side of border] for the last 10-15 years. He said the areas under the influence of terrorists on Pakistan side of the border have been cleared, because Pakistani forces were competent, capable and they had the capacity do that. Ghafoor said the issue now resides inside Afghanistan, pointing to "ungoverned" swathes and "unchecked threat" across the border. "But unfortunately on Afghan side, due to lack of capacity of Afghan forces, and now with reduced footprint of international forces, there are areas which are still ungoverned. So the issue now resides inside Afghanistan with the threat still unchecked." He maintained that to have enduring peace along Pak-Afghan border, the effort in Afghanistan is to succeed as well.
  11. MOSCOW: Russia?s diplomatic mail was not used for cocaine traffic in Argentina, a foreign ministry spokeswoman said on Saturday, after police busted an international ring of drug smugglers. The investigation started in 2016, when the Russian ambassador to Argentina called local authorities to report that traffickers were trying to move 16 bags of cocaine from the Buenos Aires embassy by way of a diplomatic flight. Maria Zakharova, the spokeswoman for the Russian foreign ministry, said on social media that the information about smugglers using diplomatic mail ?was not true?. The investigation led to the arrest on Wednesday of an Argentine policeman and another citizen of the South American country. Others involved in the scheme had been arrested in Russia, while one of the leaders of the plot was still on the run, Argentina?s Security Minister Patricia Bullrich told reporters earlier this week. Zakharova said the cocaine was destined for Europe and belonged to a Russian embassy?s non-essential employer. She didn?t say if he was arrested.
  12. ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Saturday chastised the bureaucracy alleging they had been serving only the Sharif family?s agenda. In his press conference, which he announced on Twitter a day earlier, to expose the nexus between the protesting bureaucrats and the Sharif family who Khan says were ?petrified? of what Ahad Cheema may say to save himself. TWEET Talking about the protests and banners on the streets Imran Khan likened Ahad Cheema to Nelson Mandela. He added the Cheema was Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif?s front-man and was looking after projects worth billions of rupees. There are corruption cases worth Rs14 billion on Cheema in just one project, Imran told journalists at his Bani Gala residence. He claimed that former DG NAB Qamar Zaman Chaudhry was used to save the Sharif family in the Hudaybia Paper Mills case. They made Saeed Ahmed the president of the State Bank of Pakistan. Imran added that the apex court has stated the all institutions are being controlled. ?These people who are sitting on top, all their dirty work is done by the bureaucrats at the bottom,? Imran said. Khan named multiple bureaucrats identifying them to be working for the Sharif family. He added, ?Bureaucrats are supposed to work for the country, not for the Sharif family.? Hitting at Shehbaz Sharif?s fashion choices, Khan said the Punjab chief minister even wore hats like those worn by Dons. ?In nine years Shehbaz Sharif spent Rs9 trillion,? Imran told journalists claiming all the money was spent through Sharif family?s children and the bureaucrats. He claimed that the SECP was involved in a cover-up when China was investigating its own company for raking in irregular profits.
  13. Ed Sheeran arrives for the screening of the movie Songwriter at the 68th Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, Germany, February 23, 2018 BERLIN: British singer Ed Sheeran has said that the hardest part of songwriting was coming up with lines that had never been written before as a new documentary detailing his creative process premiered at Berlin?s international film festival. The movie ?Songwriter? was directed by Sheeran?s cousin, Murray Cummings, and follows the Grammy winner as he travels around the United States and England writing songs on his laptop, jamming in a garden and recording in the studio. The intimate portrait of Sheeran, who was the most-streamed artist on music service Spotify globally in 2017, includes footage of him belting out songs while crossing the Atlantic on the Queen Mary 2, returning to high school to see his music teacher and talking to his father about his songs. ?I think the most difficult thing to do with writing a song is finding a phrase that you haven?t heard before because there?s always a song that?s going to be like: ?I love you baby like crazy, I miss you maybe?,? Sheeran told a news conference. He said he had learned not to push himself if he was struggling to write and did not believe writer?s block existed. ?What I do when I can?t write a song is I just put the guitar down and go and do something else for about a couple of weeks and then come back and then I?ll be able to write a song,? the 27-year-old said. ?So the way that my mind is now is, I will be able to write songs forever - they probably will start being about pretty mundane things because my life is getting more and more calm.? Director, screenwriter, editor and producer Murray Cummings and Ed Sheeran pose during a photocall to promote the movie Songwriter at the 68th Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, Germany, February 23, 2018 Sheeran said he liked the documentary because it showed a song being written from start to finish, rather than just an album being recorded. ?I like that Murray found a niche that hasn?t really been done before. It?s quite difficult to find something that hasn?t been done in a music movie,? Sheeran said. Sheeran, who said he planned to make a film next year in which he would play something other than himself, listed ?Goodfellas?, ?Cool Runnings? and ?Love Actually? as his favorite movies. Cummings told Reuters the documentary would give fans an insight into Sheeran off-stage. ?When he?s on his own he?s kind of very like relaxed and chilled and stuff. So I think they?re going to see that?s what he?s like because this film just kind of shows what I see every day,? Cummings said.
  14. Ben Stokes rejoined the England squad in New Zealand last week after pleading not guilty in the Bristol magistrates court to a charge of affray WELLINGTON: Ben Stokes is set to return to international cricket on Sunday when England play their first one-day international against New Zealand in Hamilton. The star all-rounder, who had been sidelined since his arrest following a nightclub incident last September, rejoined the England squad in New Zealand last week after pleading not guilty in the Bristol magistrates court to a charge of affray. Although England have not yet named their side for the first ODI, and Stokes is short of match practice, captain Eoin Morgan suggested Saturday he would be in the line-up. "He looks in great nick, he´s hit the ground running since he´s been involved and he´s been himself, which is great to see," Morgan said. "He might be better for the more games he does play and feel more comfortable coming back ... it is his first game in quite a long time." Stokes has had long net sessions since his arrival and was said to be middling the ball well with the bat and bowling at maximum effort. Along with Stokes, Joe Root, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes and Jonny Bairstow are also back in the England squad after missing the recent tri-nations Twenty20 series in which Australia beat New Zealand in the final. New Zealand have won just one of their last seven Twenty20 matches and only edged England out of the final on the strength of a superior run rate, and will be looking to turn their fortunes with the change of format. "It´s a different group this one-day squad. We´ve played some good one-day cricket," said coach Mike Hesson with the home side having enjoyed a golden run in recent months with a 3-0 ODI series win against the West Indies and beating Pakistan 5-0. But Hesson said his side knows they will have to be at their best to match England. "They (England) are aggressive from ball one with the bat. That in itself means we´ve got to keep taking wickets. "Their whole (batting) order from one to nine keep coming hard out and obviously Ben (Stokes) is one of those. We can´t only focus on one player because they´ve got plenty of good ones." Morgan believed that how England adapted to New Zealand conditions would be crucial to the outcome of the five-match series. "They´ve been on a run, have got a good well-balanced side and play extremely well at home," he said. "I mentioned before we bowled a ball in Australia that these two series we were going to play have the potential to expose some of the weaknesses of our side. "We´ve got to be open to learning and improving on those weaknesses as we go along. Australia was a tough series and New Zealand are going to be no different." Morgan felt England´s ODI batting had taken "a backward step" in Australia while their bowling had strengthened in the past year. "You can win a lot of games certainly with the bat, but restricting how many you chase down or controlling a game with the ball is so powerful."
  15. For the last one week or so, we have just been hearing about all the outrageous yet adorable things that Justin Trudeau has been up to while in India. He's having the time of his life here and we're all honestly living vicariously through him. While all of the things he's doing is kind of part of the big Indian dream, I couldn't help but think if there is an ulterior motive behind his antics. So please, bear with me and my conspiracy theory, because what is life without a little overthinking. I am personally loving all of his sherwanis and his bhangra, even though some Canadians think he's embarrassing them – and himself, but what I would like to discuss is that all of the things he has done while in India is just an audition for Bollywood on a grand scale. Let's begin the theory and examine all the evidence we have, shall we? Reuters First of all, he's already famous, obviously, he's the freaking Prime Minister of Canada. So, everyone already knows him, but that doesn't get you that lead role in a movie, does it? So, that is why he's hellbent on proving his talent and the fact that he does look like a future superstar. Let's start with his clothes. Almost every tourist in India would dress the part and enjoy their time here in some desi attire. While a lot of them would just opt for simple kurtas and all, Justin went to the next level, of course, and tried to fit in as many sherwanis as he could in this trip. Reuters While dressed like a proper dulha who looks like he's early for his own wedding (because just look at his face, that's the face of sincerity), he hung out with all the big names in Bollywood. Here, he is with King Khan himself. Tonight, we celebrated stronger ties & new co-production opportunities between Bollywood and the Canadian Film Industry. And who better to help than @iamsrk himself... Great to meet you! ð®ð³ð¨ð¦ pic.twitter.com/1OcwsA9lMS — Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) February 20, 2018 And then, he also met Farhan Akhtar. Was an honour and a pleasure to meet the Hon. Prime Minister of Canada, @justinpjtrudeau & his lovely wife, Sophie. His leadership in the discourse for ending gender discrimination serves as constant inspiration to us all. Thank you to the Respected High Commissioner for Canada to India, for the invite. A post shared by Farhan Akhtar (@faroutakhtar) on Feb 20, 2018 at 10:14am PST And R Madhavan. @JustinTrudeau such a pleasure and honour meeting you sir. Your relatability, grace and charm was most endearing and its easy to see why you are the Pride and toast of Canada.Have a lovely rest of the tour.ðð pic.twitter.com/yNpZV6l4Vo — Ranganathan Madhavan (@ActorMadhavan) February 21, 2018 And, Anupam Kher as well. It was such a pleasure to meet the Canadian Prime Minister @justinpjtrudeau and his family. What a charming and great conversationalist he is. Talked about people, culture and of course cinema.:) #Canada #India #lndianCinema #BendItLikeBeckham #SilverLiningsPlaybook A post shared by Anupam Kher (@anupampkher) on Feb 20, 2018 at 8:38am PST Chilling with so many Bollywood A-listers, it's almost as if he's making personal connections with them that would come in handy in the future. So smart, Justin, I'm impressed. Then, let's take a look at the next piece of evidence. When he visited Taj Mahal, we were blessed with this picture. Twitter 10 points to whoever guesses who he's posing as! Well, it's almost the same, isn't it? Extra points for the effort to Justin! He's basically telling the world that he has what it takes to replace Shah Rukh Khan, so he better watch out. He's coming for you, SRK. After showing his star potential with just one pose, he also showed off his incredible dance moves, because what kind of Bollywood actor can't dance, right? Making a grand entrance fit for a star, he decided to flaunt his Bhangra moves while at an event at Canada house in Delhi. Canadian PM @JustinTrudeau makes an entrance at the Canada house in New Delhi. Truly in the spirit of India. @DemocracyNewsL pic.twitter.com/ph19O7ysB4 — Rohit Gandhi (@rohitgandhi_) February 22, 2018 He's just gearing up for that pending Bollywood debut and we're so here for it. With a little more practice, his dance skills could put any current actor to shame. Now that we've talked about the technicalities of becoming a Bollywood actor, let's focus on the social aspect. An actor obviously needs to have fans and for that you need a lot of goodwill in the society. And since Justin is already a great guy, he just needed to be himself to impress everyone. We've all seen pictures of him and his family at the Golden Temple but there also he took it up a notch by showing everyone how humble he is. One of the highlights of his visit was his entire family doing 'seva' at the Golden Temple and he even left a heartfelt note in the visitor book. Instagram He's so down to earth and humble, it's so refreshing. He would be a fan favourite if (read: when) he becomes an actor. Why? Because the fame will never go to his head. He's just like all of us, living his life, doing his best. And now, we've arrived at the last bit – Justin Trudeau and his family meeting our PM Modi. If you're in the country's Prime Minister's good books, everything else should obviously be easy. Reuters See, he's already become such good pals with PM Modi, that whenever he tries to make that transition from the Prime Minister of Canada to a Bollywood superstar, it should be an easy ride for him. As for now, I'm just waiting for his debut, because if my calculations are right, it should come soon enough. These upcoming star kids have some competition. Wait, will Justin be that blessing for our country who will rid us of nepotism? Let's wait and watch.
  16. The Dropbox app logo is seen on a mobile phone, October 16, 2017. REUTERS/Thomas White/Illustration Data-sharing business Dropbox Inc on Friday filed for an initial public offering of up to $500 million with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The San Francisco-based company, which started as a free service to share and store photos, music and other large files, competes with much larger technology firms such as Alphabet Inc?s Google, Microsoft Corp, and Amazon.com Inc as well as cloud-storage rival Box Inc. It plans to have its common stock listed on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol "DBX." In its regulatory filing, Dropbox reported 2017 revenue of $1.11 billion, up 31 percent from $844.8 million a year earlier. The company?s net loss narrowed to $111.7 million in 2017 from $210.2 million in 2016. ?With over a $1 billion in revenues it speaks to Dropbox?s success over the past few years and is an impressive number in a fertile space,? said Daniel Ives at research firm GBH Insights. ?Dropbox?s business model has scaled successfully.? The company?s biggest challenge is explaining to Wall Street what differentiates Dropbox from its many competitors, Box Chief Executive Aaron Levie told Reuters on Friday. ?If Dropbox continues to focus on their user experience, they?ll be able to compete successfully for consumers and professionals,? Levie said. Dropbox, which has 11 million paying users across 180 countries, said that about half of its 2017 revenue came from customers outside the United States. Goldman Sachs & Co, JPMorgan, and Deutsche Bank Securities are some of the leading underwriters for the IPO. The amount of money a company says it plans to raise in its first IPO filing is usually a temporary placeholder.
  17. GENEVA: The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said Friday more than 20 staffers have left the organisation since 2015 after "paying for sexual services," as it called for a change in the humanitarian sector facing "a watershed moment". Following reports of sexual misconduct involving aid workers across multiple agencies, Yves Daccord ? the secretary-general of the ICRC ? said the Geneva-based organisation had conducted a thorough internal review. "I have instructed my teams to scour the data we do have on sexual misconduct, and I can tell you that since 2015 we?ve identified 21 staff members who were either dismissed for paying for sexual services or resigned during an internal enquiry," Daccord said in a statement sent to AFP. Two others did not have their contracts renewed over similar circumstances, he added, explaining that the decentralised nature of the organisation with 17,000 staff worldwide made it difficult to compile figures. Unlike crisis-hit British charity Oxfam, which did not explicitly bar its employees from hiring prostitutes, the ICRC has forbidden "the purchase of sexual services" since 2006, even in places where prostitution is legal, Daccord explained. He voiced concern that a number of incidents have not been reported, or reported cases were mishandled and vowed the ICRC was working to address the problem. Broadly, the ICRC needed to "acknowledge the cultural shift required for the organisation," Daccord said. "This is a watershed moment for the humanitarian sector as a whole. We owe it to the people we serve to behave with absolute integrity." The ICRC disclosures follow revelations that Oxfam was investigating 26 cases of sexual misconduct since a crisis erupted over its handling of a scandal involving prostitution in Haiti. Three of Oxfam?s senior leaders have apologised for the charity?s handling of an internal investigation into the hiring of prostitutes by staff in Haiti following the devastating 2010 earthquake. UNICEF?s deputy director Justin Forsyth resigned following complaints of inappropriate behaviour towards female staff in his previous post as head of British charity Save The Children.

  19. There isn't any dearth of inspiration if you truly look around. You can derive inspiration from an ant at work to even the sun, from which the grandiosity of light becomes an inspiration altogether. Yes, we can seek inspiration from nature everyday but when we find inspiration in people, that's when most life lessons are learned. That's because we can replicate every element of inspiration we see around us through people and adapt it to better our life, each day. © Forever Fit Meet Ramiz Raza, a man whose aspirations led him to achieve a distant dream, which seemed very malleable to him. Ramiz, a 21-year-old man, who hails from a small town in Jharkhand, is an ace sprinter and he supports his training expenses by working as a taxi driver at night. It's a tough life but his motivation and his thirst to succeed gets him where he wants to be! This is his story! The Beginning When Forever Fit found Ramiz, he was diligently working in Delhi making ends meet with his job and his training routine. But it wasn't so easy for Ramiz to get a routine in the first place. Ramiz hails from Deoghar, a small village in Jharkhand and it all began when he was in the 11th standard. He participated in a running competition and stood first and then realised he has the talent he had never known to have before. There was no looking back after! "Once I knew I had the talent to become a runner, my aim was to improve." © Forever Fit Since there were no training facilities in his village in Deogarh, Ramiz had to travel daily to a training facility which was 12kms away. With the daily commute and the academy fee, Ramiz was finding it fairly hard to make ends meet but he didn't give up on his dream with the glimmer of hope the training brought him every day. "The fee of this academy was Rs.500 a week, which included training, and a post workout meal." His hard work paid off well and the academy did him good. His running improved tremendously and he won three gold medals in district-level races! "I participated at the State level competitions, and won bronze medals twice in the 100m sprint race. I was doing well, but wanted to improve my performance as a sprinter." The Big Move Ramiz's struggle in his village was getting taxing by the day and his progress was becoming more and more stagnant. He wasn't getting the push he needed to conquer or learn more, neither was he getting proper guidance from a suitable coach. That's when he decided to move to Delhi and make a clean break. His parents were not very happy with that decision as they weren't very keen on him pursuing a career in sports. © Forever Fit "My parents didn't support my decision. Like most Indian middle-class families, they wanted me to focus on my studies, rather than waste time on sports." Ramiz's determination didn't deter him one bit and he made a big leap towards a brighter future and eventually shifted to the capital. Delhi has a lot to offer where sports is concerned and training facilities are available in plenty for a runner. Ramiz didn't give up on hope and started looking for the right path as soon as he landed in Delhi. But the big bag city comes with its own dilemmas. To make ends meet and continue a career as a runner, Ramiz took up the job as a taxi driver and got into the most rigid routine to carry forth his passion! "Since my parents don't support me financially, I have to bear my own living and training expenses. So, when I moved to Delhi in December 2016, I decided to become a taxi driver." Ramiz drives a cab at night from 8pm to 8am. After 12 hours of making sure his passengers reach their destination safely, he eventually goes home and sleeps from 10am to 2pm, following which he is found at Thaygraj Stadium from 4pm to 7pm, training and improving his mettle as a runner. Ramiz is also pursuing his B.A. Hons in English simultaneously from the open school of learning and living up to parents expectations. But his studies don't come in the way of his achievements one bit! "I recently won a Silver medal in Delhi, at YMCA Athletics Meet." © Forever Fit Apart from that, Ramiz lives a healthy lifestyle where he eats right to maintains a wholesome diet and tries and gets adequate sleep. "Because I'm short of time, I focus on eating foods like oats, bananas, and eggs because these are easily available, healthy, and cost-effective." Never Give Up! 'Never give up on your passion' is Ramiz Raza's life motto. He believes if you work hard enough you're bestowed with the best gift life has to offer. From a small town village to a big city, Ramiz followed his dreams of becoming a successful runner and he hasn't looked back yet! "No matter how hard the struggle gets, I will never give up running. Despite my difficulties- in terms of diet, finances, and time management- the thought of giving up my passion never strikes me. I believe that determination will ultimately bring." While Ramiz struggles to become successful at what he does best, he is actively looking for a sponsor so he can focus on his training a lot better and aspire towards being counted amongst the best runners in the country! If you ever happen to sit in his cab, strike up a conversation with him about his story for sure or write to him at ramizrza78@gmail.com, in case you want to help him out. *with inputs from Ramiz Raza's Interview with Forever Fit.
  20. 75th Golden Globe Awards ? Photo Room ? Beverly Hills, California, U.S., 07/01/2018 ? Oprah Winfrey poses backstage with her Cecil B. DeMille Award. REUTERS Oprah Winfrey put to rest any lingering questions about a potential 2020 bid for the presidency, declaring on a late-night talk show on Thursday that she was ?definitely not running.? The media mogul, appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, was emphatic in her response to host Kimmel?s question about whether she would run. ?Where do I look into the camera? I am definitely not running for president,? Winfrey said over cries of ?no? from the studio audience. Last month, Winfrey fans lit up Twitter with calls for her to run for president in 2020 against US President Donald Trump after she gave an inspiring speech at the Golden Globe awards show in support of those who have exposed sexual misconduct. ?You now, you give a speech and then you sit down and you have surprisingly started to run for president,? Winfrey told Kimmel, calling it ?a humbling thing to have people think that you can run the country.? She acknowledged, though, having thought about it. ?I am the kind of person who tries to listen to signs. I think, well am I supposed to run the country? I don?t think so.? Known by millions on first-name basis, Winfrey first rose to fame as the host of a television talk show, using it to build a media empire that spans magazine publishing, movie and television production, cable TV and satellite radio. Born into poverty, she is now one of the world?s wealthiest women and been nominated for two Academy Awards. She has long been associated with Democratic Party causes and fundraising. Trump has several times said he hoped he would face Winfrey as an opponent in the 2020 presidential race. On Sunday night, he blasted her over a segment on CBS? ?60 Minutes? program in which she led a panel of 14 Republican, Democrat and Independent voters from Grand Rapids, Michigan in a wide ranging discussion about Trump?s first year in office. Trump tweeted: ?Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on 60 Minutes. The questions were biased and slanted, the facts incorrect. Hope Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others!? Asked by Kimmel whether she had thought about responding to the tweet, Winfrey replied: ?Not a second.? She added: ?You don?t win by meeting any kind of negativity head on.?
  21. ISLAMABAD: MNA Ayesha Gulalai announced on Friday that her new party will support presidential form of democracy in the country. Addressing a press conference here, Gulalai announced the manifesto of her party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-Gulalai or PTI-G, would also envision judo karate training for women. Ayesha Gulalai reveals name of her new political party The PTI renegade's new political party to be named Tehreek-e-Insaf Gulalai of PTI-G Gulalai, who announced the name of the new party in December, has still not officially resigned from Imran Khan-led PTI. A reference by Imran to kick her out of the party was rejected by the Election Commission of Pakistan. Gulalai in today?s press conference also said her party will strive for bringing looted money back to the country and referring cases against the culprits in military courts. The MNA also slammed ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and said the party has made the Parliament its ?slave?. PML-N to take legal action against Gulalai after allegations Gulalai alleged she was offered a party ticket by PML-N in return for attacking state institutions ?PML-N is going to be banned now that his leader [Nawaz Sharif] has been disqualified,? she said, adding that PML-N ministers should be sent to jail. Gulalai had announced to quit PTI after alleging sexual harassment by party chief Imran Khan. She has made various allegations of corruption against the party, besides also claiming early this month that PML-N offered her a party ticket in exchange for hurling accusations against state institutions.
  22. BRUSSELS: International donors have raised half a billion dollars for a multi-national military operation in West Africa?s Sahel region, the EU?s top diplomat said on Friday, as Europe seeks to stop migrants and militants reaching its shores. At a conference of about 50 countries including the United States, Japan and Norway, countries pledged 414 million euros ($509 million) for the G5 Sahel force, made up of troops from Mali, Niger, Chad, Burkina Faso and Mauritania. The European Union, which believes training local forces will avoid risking the lives of its own combat troops, was one of the biggest donors, doubling its contribution to 116 million euros. It paves the way to make the force fully operational later this year. EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini stressed that promises had to be followed through on quickly to reach troops, while African leaders said the money so far would only cover the first year of operations. France, the region?s former colonial power with more than 4,000 soldiers in the region, welcomed the donations after several years of struggling to raise sufficient financing. The change in sentiment reflected concern that the Sahel could be a springboard for attacks on the West, diplomats said. ?We will continue our offensive alongside the G5 Sahel force to eradicate jihadi terrorist violence across the region,? France?s President Emmanuel Macron said, standing with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni. Militants took over northern Mali in 2012 before French forces pushed them back in 2013 in an intervention that alerted Washington and others to the growing threat in the region. The United States has some 800 troops in Niger, where four U.S. soldiers died in October, but global awareness of the security importance of the vast, desert region remains low. Spain?s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy struggled to name the five countries of Mali, Niger, Chad, Burkina Faso and Mauritania as he arrived at the conference. But Germany?s Merkel said the pledges showed the European Union?s commitment to stabilize the arid region: ?We cannot only start to fight illegal migration in Libya. We have to start in Mali, Niger, Chad. All of Europe is involved,? she said. The G5 Sahel operation, whose command base is in central Mali, is to swell to 5,000 personnel from seven battalions and will also engage in humanitarian and development work. About 350,000 people traveled through Niger alone in 2017, mostly hoping to reach Europe but some trying to return home, according to the Red Cross. TWO OPTIONS: MIGRATE OR DIE Evoking the desperation young people feel in the impoverished Sahel, Niger?s President Mahamadou Issoufou said many had just two options in life: to die in the Mediterranean trying to reach Europe or to die at the hands of militants. ?We have to act resolutely to change the face of the Sahel region or risk seeing this region of the world fall irreversibly into chaos and violence,? Issoufou told the conference after asking leaders and ministers to stand for a moment of silence for two French soldiers killed this week in Mali. But Issoufou said the force would still need future financing on an annual basis of around 115 million euros and urged the West to take the fight against militants as seriously as it has taken the threat in Iraq and Syria. As well as the European Union, pledges have come from the United States, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, among others. France is set to spend 1.2 billion euros to fund development in the region over the next five years, a 40 percent increase over current levels, while other countries are expected to provide more aid for farmers, schools and water projects. The European Union is investing 8 billion euros in development aid in the region, according to EU data.
  23. If there's anything Kartik Aaryan gets right all the damn time, it's his knack for terrific footwear. Talk of white sneakers, high-tops, slip-ons, dress shoes or loafers/moccasins — he's worn them all. Plus, he keeps his shoes close, and their appeal to the masses closer. Come a latest sneaker drop and you may not find the actor wearing it, but that's what makes him special. He sticks to his gut, is least bothered about MRPs and styles each pair supremely well. All while coming across as a menswear god. To begin with, here's his shoe game in a few high-res images: © viral bhayani © viral bhayani © viral bhayani © viral bhayani © viral bhayani To sum it up, he's the man to follow for easy, affordable celeb-fashion cops. Plus, he's always had a signature look: supremely manly, occasion-appropriate, but reeking of the ideology of standing out from the crowd. He's aced what most famous men couldn't, you see. So, to carry his streak of impeccable footwear forward, Aaryan turned to another stellar pair for the screening of 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety': © viral bhayani Here's what we think: while his textured moccasins aren't bringing along a lot of polish to the outfit, that's what's making them very important. Primarily, because, that's not the vibe Aaryan was going for here. While on another day for a movie screening, the actor could have gone a little too formal, Kartik's turned to chilled-out wear for the event. To keep the chills at bay, he's opted for a knit instead of a white T-shirt below his checked bomber (quite a style hack) and decided to wear a suggested-against hue for the evening: white. Having said that, that's exactly what we mean; his moccasins are exactly what this outfit needed. © viral bhayani But that's not what's making them the ultimate loafers. Replace Kartik's white trousers with black formal ones, the knit with a shirt and the bomber with a formal blazer and you'd realise: how the loafers will yet shine very bright. And with no external help, will drive your ensemble to occasion-specific dressing brilliance. Isn't that groundbreaking?
  24. While the Indian cricket team is slugging it out in South Africa, their rivals across the border are engrossed in the third edition of the glittering Pakistan Super League (PSL). The popular T20 league began with a star-studded opening ceremony in Dubai on Thursday which was followed by a thrilling encounter between PSL franchises Peshawar Zalmi and Multan Sultans.

The Peshawar Zalmi player was seen sporting a horseshoe moustache - a look that has been mastered by Australian speedster Mitchell Johnson over the years. His photo with the new facial hairdo has gone viral on the social media with fans across the globe sharing their opinion on Riaz's look. How do you like @WahabViki's new look? The left-armer claims to have grown the mustache to 'motivate' himself!#HBLPSL #DilSeJaanLagaDe pic.twitter.com/xMMCnXTlGF — PakistanSuperLeague (@thePSLt20) February 22, 2018 During an interview, when asked about his new look, Riaz said: "I wish I can properly perform once again, in this PSL series, what I am known for — my character (role) as a fast bowler. I hope it keeps reminding me of who I am, what I have to do in this tournament and how I have to perform". When asked if the style inspiration comes from Mitch, he said: See, it's good to be inspired by anyone for anything that benefits you and if I'm inspired by Mitchell, then I'd love to say thank you to him. I was quite scared and nervous when I came to the stadium because I knew people would take and share pictures (of my new style)". Well, inspired or not, Riaz's new look has surely turned him into the talk of the town. But, unfortunately for the Pakistani bowler, the social media wasn't too kind.

  25. Much has been spoken about Ishaan Khatter in the past. Including, that he's Shahid Kapoor's younger brother, is 'almost' dating Jhanvi Kapoor and that he jumps off balconies in quirky socks. To save you some effort, let's inform you that all these facts are absolutely true. Even before the audience proclaims him as a movie star (we're rooting for him), the 22-year-old is already grabbing headlines, all without Shahid Kapoor's support. And talking of Jhanvi Kapoor, Khatter was recently spotted with the athletic-wear lass once again, making a quick exit from an eatery in Mumbai. While Jhanvi obviously, looked like she was going for absolute comfort with her outfit, her arm candy too, wasn't any far behind. Looks like, that's the alleged couple's thing, you know; to always be at ease while out-and-about. Take their recent outings for instance: © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani And the most recent being: © Viral Bhayani To be honest, while most men opt for try-hard antics while meeting a girl over lunch, Ishaan's living the dream life in that aspect. Considering the girl's already in his hand, he's over the phase of impressive-dressing. Because really, he played his game quite early in life and scored her, quick. © Viral Bhayani As seen here, Ishaan has gone in for a sunny-day vibe — with a daytime shirt (in dainty florals), denim shorts (that seem to be drawstring-ed) and his staple 'dirty' grey plimsolls. Though he's taken his JBL speakers for a spin once again, that's not the point to discuss here. Guess what, this outfit on Ishaan Khatter can be yours in under Rs. 1,800! Here's how: 1.
