  1. People say, “If you've got it, flaunt it” but how many of us can actually implement it in our lives? Well, Jeff Bezos does and when he does it, the whole world stops just to get a glance of him. And that's exactly what happened at the MARS 2018 conference when took his 'new dog' out for a walk. What's so special about Jeff Bezos walking his dog? I walk my dog every day, but no one gives two hoots about it. There can be two reasons for this – first, he is the world's richest man and second, your dog comes nowhere close to Bezos' SpotMini, a dog-like robot. The pet robot dog, SpotMini, was created by Boston Dynamics. Reuters If you ever want to measure success and how filthy rich one can be, don't look at Jordon Belfort from 'Wolf of The Wall Street', who slept on a pile of cash. Look at Jeff Bezos, who got a robot to be his pet dog. A dog who doesn't throw tantrums or wants you to cuddle them all day long, but opens doors like a pro. Internet literally lost its shit when the Amazon founder stepped out with his pet robot. And we can't help but compare this particular moment to Akshay Kumar and his pet dog from 'Entertainment'. The only difference is that in the movie the dog was worth a million dollars, but in real life the owner Jeff Bezos is worth billions of dollars. This is the kickass picture, we and in fact the whole world, is talking about. Taking my new dog for a walk at the #MARS2018 conference. #BostonDynamics pic.twitter.com/vE6CXrvV3o — Jeff Bezos (@JeffBezos) March 19, 2018 The four-legged robot can already open doors, handle objects and climb stairs; and its creator expects it to operate in offices, homes and outdoors. Twitter being Twitter, within no time started giving their two cents on the robot dog. In a parallel robot world the tweet would be “taking the richest man in the world for a walk”. — Gokul Dinesh (@meGDinesh) March 19, 2018 This is two weeks after Alexa laughed maniacally. Why do I find this unsettling? — Casey Williams (@SciFiClimateGuy) March 19, 2018 I don't care if they eventually kill us all if it can get me same day delivery tbh — Comfortably Smug (@ComfortablySmug) March 19, 2018 I'd be down with having my packages delivered by a fleet of robot dogs. — Brandy Donaghy (@Scatterbrandy) March 19, 2018 It doesn't look like it wants ear scratches or nose boops, Jeff. 2/10 would not pet cc @dog_rates — Caroline McCarthy (@caro) March 19, 2018 While we are still living in 2018, Jeff Bezos seems to living in 3018 and here we are eating what we earn…PEANUTS.
  2. Irrfan Khan, one of the most talented actors in Bollywood who has already proved his mettle with his acting skills, recently revealed a rather very sad news on Twitter a few days ago. “Sometimes you wake up with a jolt with life-shaking you up. The last 15 days, my life has been a suspense story. Little had I known that my search for rare stories would make me find a rare disease," his tweet read. ðð» pic.twitter.com/JXD8NKwH3D — Irrfan (@irrfank) March 5, 2018 Yes, Irrfan has confirmed that he has been diagnosed with a very rare disease called as Neuroendocrine Tumor, that commonly occurs in the intestine but can also be found in the pancreas, lung and the rest of the body as well. A cancerous tumor can grow and spread to other parts of the body if not found early, whereas a benign tumor can only grow. Explaining it to the public, Irrfan began with choosing the wise but emotional quote by Margaret Mitchell -- "Life is under no obligation to give us what we expect." He then went on to say, “The unexpected makes us grow, which is what the past few days have been about. Learning that I have been diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumour as of now has admittedly been difficult, but the love and strength of those around me and that I found within me has brought me to a place of hope. The journey of this is taking me out of the country, and I request everyone to continue sending their wishes." Irrfan also clarified rumours saying that NEURO is not always about the brain and added that "As for the rumours that were floated NEURO is not always about the brain and googling is the easiest way to do research To those who waited for my words, I hope to be back with more stories to tell." ðð» pic.twitter.com/IDThvTr6yF — Irrfan (@irrfank) March 16, 2018 Neuroendocrine tumor basically arises from cells of the endocrine (hormonal) and nervous system. The major symptoms of a neuroendocrine tumor are severe anxiety attacks, heart palpitations, and rapid pulse and as discussed above, if it is a benign tumor then it would be easier to cure and if not, then it depends on how early the tumor has been detected.
  3. Shadow Of The Tomb Raider's first teaser is out and for the first time, Lady Croft won't be a timed exclusive to a specific console or platform. The trailer is what you would expect it to be, where she fights some gun slinging baddies, rocking her bow and arrow and of course climbing rocks. It also appears that Lara's next adventure will be set in Central or South America discovering Mayan treasures and secrets. © Square Enix The teaser also confirms that the new installation in the franchise will release on September 14, 2018, and a full reveal trailer will come out on April 27th. The Tomb Raider franchise was rebooted back in 2013 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be the third game in the franchise. The last game, Rise of the Tomb Raider reviewed well, however, not many people got to play the game on launch date as it was a timed exclusive on Xbox One. However, Shadow of the Tomb Raider will launch on other platforms such as Playstation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One — all at the same time. © Square Enix The Tomb Raider franchise has sold over 63 million copies worldwide. The original game led to one of the most successful video game film adaptations in history, with the 2013 reboot inspiring a new blockbuster film that embodies the game's signature survival action style. Its protagonist Lara Croft has been a contemporary global icon for over two decades. Shadow of the Tomb Raider will tie off the trilogy with “the climactic finale of Lara's origin story,” according to some leaks. You can watch the teaser below to see what Lara is up to this time.
  4. Stephen W. Hawking, the British theoretical physicist who overcame a devastating neurological disease to probe the greatest mysteries of the cosmos and become a globally celebrated symbol of the power of the human mind, died at his home in Cambridge. Unable to move a muscle, speechless but for a computer-synthesized voice, Dr Hawking had suffered since the age of 21 from a degenerative motor neuron disease similar to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's disease. Hawking became the face of science genius with his extraordinary contribution to the field. Here are his major contributions to science and why he is regarded to be Albert Einstein's legacy. 1. Unable to move a muscle, speechless but for a computer-synthesized voice, Dr Hawking had suffered since the age of 21 from a degenerative motor neuron disease similar to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's disease. Initially given two years to live, he found the strength to complete his doctorate and rise to the position of Lucasian professor of mathematics at the University of Cambridge. © Reuters 2. Hawking came to prominence in the early 1970s for work done in collaboration with mathematician Roger Penrose. They devised a revolutionary theory of gravity positing that if the universe obeys Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity and fits the standard model of physical cosmology, then it must have begun as an infinitesimally small point in the center of a black hole. In 1974, Hawking theorized that black holes emit radiation, a startling but now widely accepted conclusion that is central to modern theoretical physics. © Reuters 3. Hawking was such a fan of "The Simpsons" he allowed the animated Fox show to feature him during four separate appearances, and called it "the best thing on American television." Eddie Redmayne portrayed Hawking in 2014's "The Theory of Everything," which won Redmayne an acting Oscar. The film was adapted from "Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen," a memoir by Hawking's first wife, Jane. © GoodReads 4. “A Brief History of Time,” first published in 1988, earned him worldwide acclaim, selling at least 10 million copies in 40 languages and staying on the best-seller list for a record 237 weeks. Often referred to as “one of the most unread books of all time” for the hard-to-grasp concepts, it included only one equation: E = mc2 or the equivalence of mass and energy, deduced by Einstein from his theory of special relativity. The book outlined the basics of cosmology for the general reader. © White House Press 5. This comes as no surprise that the eminent scientist holds several accolades. Among others, Hawking holds 12 honorary degrees. He was awarded the Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1982. In 2009, he was honoured with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by then President Barack Obama. The scientist was also named a Fellow of The Royal Society. He kept cheating death (55 years to be precise). His ability to survive so long baffled medical experts, to the point where some doubted that he had received a correct diagnosis. But Hawking's mind was as intact as ever, and with the help of a computerized voice system controlled by a muscle in his cheek, he was able to continue his work. For all his remarkable fame and success, Hawking joked in 1993 that he had only one complaint: that his voice synthesizer didn't accurately reflect his British heritage.
  5. Potterheads unite. It's time to take your wands out, for the adventure we all have been waiting for is finally here. Yes, the first official trailer of Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes Of Grindelwald is here. Let's just say it's time to freak out. Before you do that, though, let's talk about 5 things to freak out about. 1. At the beginning of the trailer, we see ministry officials apparating inside Hogwarts. How are they doing it? You can't just apparate inside Hogwarts! Does that mean we'll get to uncover something we didn't know earlier? Source: Warner Bros. Pictures 2. Jude Law makes a handsome Dumbledore, but does he measure up? We kind of saw a young Dumbledore earlier in Voldemort's childhood, and that version is still haunting us. But you have to agree, Jude does have the charisma. Fingers crossed! Source: Warner Bros. Pictures 3. Our favourite Jacob Kowalski is back. Wait, what? YES! Source: Warner Bros. Pictures 4. Dumbledore entrusts Newt with the mammoth job of incarcerating Grindelwald. Does it remind you of something? Can you draw a parallel? A much older Dumbledore and a young Harry in Newt's place - except this time the bad guy was Voldemort. Wow. Source: Warner Bros. Pictures 5. Newt has a battle-buddy. Who is that? Source: Warner Bros. Pictures All we can say is WE CAN'T KEEP CALM! Check it out for yourself:
  6. There is something that keeps successful people motivated most of the time and we wonder how do they do it and how is it even possible to stay motivated at all times. Well, most of us just waste our time waiting for some inspiration or motivation to come to us. Some would say you need to keep yourself motivated but no one tells us how to actually do that. Right? The problem is most of us commit to action when we feel motivated about something and the unfortunate thing is that we do not remain motivated at all times and when the tough time arrives it becomes even tougher to continue the work. This happens because we follow this cycle: Emotional inspiration > Motivation> Desirable action. Now, the problem with above equation is that for most of the time we do not have that emotional inspiration in our own control and thus we fail. ©TED Talks The motivational speaker and author, Tim Ferriss once heard about a novelist who had written over seventy novels. Seeing such an accomplishment someone asked the author that how he was able to write so consistently and stay inspired and motivated most of the time. The author replied, “Two hundred crappy words per day, that's it .” The logic here is that if he forced himself to write two hundred crappy words, more often than not the act of writing would inspire him and before he knew it, he would have thousands of words down on the page. So, the idea is to first do something and that progress gives you more energy and ideas to continue the work. Suppose if you are struggling to design your website but still, you sit down and force yourself to design that header in some time you would be getting ideas and energy to design the body and other parts of your website as well. This what the equation for motivation must look like. Inspiration > Motivation > Action > Inspiration > Motivation> Action > and so on. Your action develops more inspiration and motivation for you to continue. That's the secret behind many successful people and how they do it. ©Reuters Recently in a conversation with Draper University students at Tesla factory Elon said, "I think it's very difficult to start companies, it's quite painful. A friend of mine has a good phrase for doing a startup: it's like eating glass and staring into the abyss. If you are wired to do it, then only do it, not otherwise. So think of it this way - if you need inspiring words, DON'T DO IT!" What Elon Musk meant when saying if you are wired or not is that you should not stay dependent on the inspiration to come to you but you should be wired to it anyway whatever the odds may be.
  7. There is not a single person in the world who wouldn't want to be friends with a person like Elon Musk. It's safe to say that he is a crazy billionaire whose mind works at a completely different tangent, and the epic things that cross his mind every day are hard to keep up with. Now, if I can just figure out how to attach those to a really big shark ... — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 11, 2018 But if you are lucky enough to be friends with him, what's the ideal thing to do? Collaborate with him and create something entirely breathtaking. That's exactly what the creator of HBO's 'Westworld' Jonathan Nolan did with his close friend Elon. With Jonah Nolan and Lisa Joy, creators of @westworldonhbo @sxsw. Just played the highlight reel Jonah did of the Falcon Heavy and Starman launch. Next two posts ... A post shared by Elon Musk (@elonmusk) on Mar 10, 2018 at 3:40pm PST At the recent South by Southwest Conference, Elon crashed the show's panel to talk about space and mars and travelling to space, basically all that Elon is best at. He joined the creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy to first talk about all those things and then, to take us by surprise. Once again, something Elon is best at. © 512Tech After giving a rather inspirational short speech, he went on and unveiled a small project that he and Jonathan have been working on: A short trailer for the Falcon Heavy launch. © Twitter The two-minute trailer is set to David Bowie's song because umm, obviously. It offers some never seen before footage of what all went in before and during the launch. © YouTube/Space X Right from the prep to the failures and of course the world-famous cherry-red Tesla, we get a look at the breathtaking launch from a new and different perspective. © YouTube/Space X And since this trailer was created by two extremely talented people, it is bound to give you Goosebumps. Have a look: While unveiling the trailer, Nolan who was there during the launch said, "There was an incredible spirit there that day, something I hadn't felt in an awfully long time. So we tried to capture that essence—to record it and spread it. And the only way I know how to share that feeling is with a trailer. It's not for TV or a movie; it's for the next part of the human story." Pretty sure if we were in Nolan's place we would have felt the same. But nevertheless, this beautiful trailer does make us feel that we were, in fact, present at the launch and they couldn't have done a better job.
  8. What would life be if we didn't have love stories in it? Shoojit Sircar's upcoming film 'October' is already promising us with the taste of love and the sting that comes along with it. We already got a glimpse of the teaser on Valentine's Day and couldn't help but love the gloomy yet beautiful world of Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu. And now the makers have given us the first look of 'October' and we can't deny that Varun looks every bit as promising as we had imagined. Varun tweeted the picture and wrote, “#OctoberFirstLook. October will live with you forever.@ShoojitSircar @ronnielahiri @writeonj @BanitaSandhu” #OctoberFirstLook. October will live with you forever.@ShoojitSircar @ronnielahiri @writeonj @BanitaSandhu pic.twitter.com/97kKhPzEPB — Varun DAN Dhawan (@Varun_dvn) March 9, 2018 Looking at Varun's intense and forlorn look, we can't help but feel that somehow this film will leave the audience impressed while also leaving a deep imprint on their mind. © RisingSunFilms Not many know but Varun has worked really hard to get his role right for Shoojit's film. The actor was actually asked not to sleep for several days for some of the scenes that he had to shoot, just to get the intensity right. © Twitter A source close to the film revealed, “Shoojit is very particular about how he wants things. He asked Varun to not sleep for almost a week or just take a nap for 2 hours every day because he wanted that raw, swollen look on his face. And Varun actually did that.” © Twitter Clearly, Varun is leaving no stone unturned to get into his character and looking at the poster, we've got to say that he has aced the look and we can't wait to see him in his new avatar. © RisingSunFilms Talking about the film, 'October' looks more like a romantic drama that explores different shades of love and relationships. While many might mistake it as a love story, let us tell you it's not your clichéd drama but a story about love, relationship and caring. This unique film is all set to hit the theatre on 13th April 2018.
  9. A UK-based higher education analytics company Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) calculated statistics from hundreds of universities worldwide to see which institutions were the strongest in 48 different subjects, from accounting to philosophy to veterinary science. The University of Pittsburgh has been rated to have the best philosophy program in the world whereas Colorado School of Mines is best in the engineering program. University of California, Davis topped in veterinary sciences program. If you are thinking what all factors they take into consideration before coming to the conclusion then here is there filtering criteria.

  10. We often witness protests concerning different kinds of salary woes- not getting enough salary, not enough raises, inequality in pay et al. But have you ever seen a group of people rejecting $700 million worth of raises? Hundreds of doctors in Canada are doing just that because they think they already have too much money. Physicians, specialists, resident doctors, and medical students in Quebec have signed an online petition stating that they don't want the $700 million worth of raises they got last month after negotiations with the provincial government. © Twitter But before you start thinking what kind of a stupid petition is this, you should know that all this is being done for a reason we could have never imagined. Instead of an increase in their own pay, they would like the government to allocate the funds to make the conditions better for patients and over-worked nurses. "We, Quebec doctors, are asking that the salary increases granted to physicians be canceled and that the resources of the system be better distributed for the good of the health-care workers and to provide health services worthy to the people of Quebec," reads their petition. © MQRP The doctors are of the view that other health-care workers have faced drastic cuts in recent years while the doctors have been given massive increases. They further wrote, "These increases are all the more shocking because our nurses, clerks and other professionals face very difficult working conditions, while our patients live with the lack of access to required services because of the drastic cuts in recent years.” While their initiative deserves applause, we and the rest of the internet can't help but wish we were in their situation: 1. Flying Off To Canada Over 500 doctors in Canada are protesting that their salary is too much! Yes too much! God, what did I do wrong? Please forgive me! Take me to Canada or any place that they pay too much. I will not protest! pic.twitter.com/e0FE5GAkpT — Aproko Doctor (@bobbege) March 6, 2018 2.

  11. If someone is in a relationship, they introduce their significant other as their boyfriend or girlfriend while others who are not, introduce their partners as 'someone they're dating'. There is a stark difference between dating and being in a relationship. While both are directionally similar, they have subtle signs that make for two very different aspects of being with someone. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Here are some very prominent differences between being in a relationship and dating someone, just in case you're confused. Mutuality One of the major difference between dating and relationship is having your own idea about what the two are. While relationships are based on mutual agreement and trust, dating isn't the same. For some, casual dating is not mutual. The idea of exclusivity while with someone may differ. Some people like to exclusively date each other while others like to date other people and don't want to be committed to just one person. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Commitment This one's a given. Commitment is the key in a relationship, that's why it's a relationship. People commit to stay together and look forward to a future together while dating (mostly) lacks commitment of any sort. The only commitment people may have while they're dating is to get an ice cream together, after dinner! (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Communication Communication differs largely in a relationship vs while dating. While you're in a relationship you'll be communicating with your partner often, about every little thing. Be it telling them about the small little details from your past or asking them to snore a little less while they're sleeping! Dating is different. Communication is limited and basic and not too intrinsic. Like deciding where to eat next or a casual banter is something couples who're dating usually indulge in. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Expectations Of course expectations vary when you're dating someone or when you're in a relationship. You expect lesser from the person if you're dating them. It's normal for one person to be more into the dynamic than the other person but because you both know it's casual, there are no expectations of the future etc. with them. A relationship, however, is built on expectations. You expect every little thing from your partner. From patience to even a bright shining future, it's all on autopilot. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Priorities While both dating and relationships are meaningful, one prioritises lesser than the other. When you're dating someone you're not necessarily serious about them so you prioritise other things along with them like work, friends, activities etc. When you're in a relationship, your dynamic with other people might change entirely because the person you're with takes prime importance in your life. They come before family, friends and even work. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Although these are the five most prominent differences between dating and relationships, there are other tiny little things that make them unique in their own way. All said and done, both are exciting to experience and sometimes the person you're dating can become the partner in your relationship too!
  12. If someone ever tells you, “Hey, I don't know what's Paytm, just send me cash!” don't just look, but stare hard at that person because that's how a liar looks like. We don't think there's anyone who does not know about Paytm, one of the most successful online payment and e-commerce platforms. In fact, after Demonetisation, even those who were not that active, started using it aggressively. BCCL Now, while we all are busy making payments using Paytm, its founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma is possibly swimming in the huge pile of money he has made with the help of his brainchild. Why? Because Vijay at the age of 39, is now the youngest Indian billionaire, with a whopping fortune of USD 1.7 billion. According to the recently released Forbes 2018 list, Vijay is at 1,394th rank. In fact, of the 2,208 billionaires, only 63 are under 40 and Sharma happens to be the only Indian billionaire in that league. Reuters According to the Forbes description, in 2011 Vijay found Paytm, which now stands at a value of USD 9.4 billion. A project that started as a mobile wallet or a medium for online payment, soon transitioned into the e-commerce business with Paytm Mall. It's not that people never used that platform generously, but after demonetization, things turned for good for Paytm. When many were left with no cash in their hands, Paytm evolved as their messiah and helped make payments and transactions easier. Twitter The description further mentions, “One of the biggest beneficiaries of India's demonetization, Paytm has notched up 250 million registered users and 7 million transactions daily.” 92-year-old Samprada Singh, chairman emeritus of Alkem Laboratories is the oldest Indian in the list. He was ranked 1,867th on the list with a net worth of USD 1.2 billion. At an age, where many people are possibly trying to sort their lives, Vijay is doing what any Sharma Ji can do best – make everyone jealous of their achievements.
  13. After almost six years, 'Wreck it Ralph' is back to wreck some more stuff! The classic video game 'villain' has left the comfort of his retro arcade and travels to a new and exciting place – The Internet. The sequel to the 2012 hit 'Wreck It Ralph', 'Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2' brings together the original cast of John C. Reilly as Ralph, the bad-good protagonist, along with his partner Vanellope von Schweetz, voiced by Sarah Silverman, and their adventures that follow after they are zapped into the strange world of cyberspace. Rich Moore, the director of the first movie and the co-director of the sequel, explained, “A part in Vanellope's game 'Sugar Rush' breaks, and in order to preserve that and save the way of life they have in the arcade, they go to this very modern place which is going to put their friendship to the test.” This movie will have both of the characters going online – literally – taking over the strange land of internet full of annoying online ads, eBay auctions for cute cat pictures, and mindless---or 'Zen' as Ralph puts it---mobile games. The original movie handled video games in a hilarious and clever way, and it'll be interesting to see the treatment of video games in the sequel. The main takeaway, however, from the whole trailer was the hilarious scene of Ralph feeding the bunny pancakes until it explodes, and if there is more stuff related to games like this instead of random internet sites, then we have a winner with this movie. The movie is set to theatres this November, so let's wait and see if it can top the first one.
  14. Note- The article just lays down the properties of sprouts. For successful fat loss or muscle, you will need to align your calorie intake with your goal. Sprouts are one of the healthiest food items out there. Whenever somebody plans to start a healthy diet, no doubt sprouts always make their way into their diet plan. Today, I am going to give you the lowdown on sprouts and why you should include them in your diet too. No matter if your goal is fat loss or building muscle, sprouts can be a helpful food. What Are Sprouts? © Thinkstock/Getty Images When seeds are germinated and become very young plants, they are called sprouts. The germinated seed is around 2 to 5cm long which comes out after a period of two to seven days. The germination process starts with seeds being soaked for several hours in water, generally overnight, depending upon the seed. After soaking them, they are exposed to a moist environment and allowed to grow till they become young plants. Seeds that form a part of sprout salads are lentils, black beans, kidney beans, green peas etc. 1) Sprouts Are More Nutritious Than The Seed Itself Multiple studies have shown that the sprouting of seeds actually increases its protein content. Not only this but sprouting also helps the protein in the seeds to be better absorbed by the body. This happens due to anti-nutrients that are present in the seeds and which get reduced with the germination of the seed. The whole sprouting process also increases the nutrient level of folate, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese, vitamin c and vitamin k. 2) Sprouts help with digestion Though lentils or other seeds contain enough fiber in themselves, you will be surprised to know that after germinating, their fiber content increases by more than 200%. This is quite beneficial as the type of fiber in sprouts is actually insoluble fiber which helps in the formation of stool. It helps food to move through the gut smoothly and reduces the chances of suffering from constipation. People who take high protein diets, especially protein supplements often complain about constipation. Including sprout salads in their daily diet can help them solve the problem. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 3) Sprouts can help in lowering cholesterol According to a study conducted by the Obesity Research Centre, Research Institute of endocrine sciences, eating certain sprouts may increase the 'HDL Cholesterol' and reduce 'LDL Cholesterol' and Total Cholesterol. This is an advantage for people who consume a non-vegetarian diet for their protein intake. A diet high in protein that includes red meat also contains a lot of cholesterol which increases LDL Cholesterol. Including sprouts in your diet can help you to maintain your cholesterol levels in the safer limits. 4) Easy to make and carry One of the biggest advantages of sprouts as a healthy food option is the convenience and portability of the food. You just need to buy a pack of lentils or beans and soak them in water. Just add some salt, pepper and vegetables for seasoning and your anytime healthy snack is ready. It has a good shelf life too. Once germinated, you can easily use them in the next 4 to 5 days. They serve as a good breakfast option in the morning or you can fit them in between any two big meals of the day.

  15. Summers are almost here and so is the scorching heat which is dreaded by basically everyone. But for people who drive a two-wheeler, it is all the way worse because a bulky helmet on top of your head is the last thing anyone would need when they are already sweating like a pig. Now, helmets with air-conditioning would sound like a dream but three young college graduates have already made it come true. 22-year-old mechanical engineers - Kausthub Kaundinya, Sreekanth Kommula and Anand Kumar have been working on an AC helmet which might soon be available for commercial use. The trio graduated in 2016 from VNR Vignana Jyothi Institute of Engineering and Technology, Bachupally. After carefully studying the market and realizing that there is no such product available, they began working on an industrial AC helmet. While all of this is astounding, the name of the helmet will make you chuckle. It's named Jarsh, which stands for Just A Rather Safe Helmet. Sounds familiar? © YouTube/Jarsh Innocations Well it should since it is inspired by Jarvis (Just A Rather Very Intelligent System) from Iron Man. Jarsh has two variants- one with a two-hour battery life and the second one with an eight-hour battery life. The cooling system in the helmet runs on a thermoelectric process which makes it just 250 gms heavier than a normal helmet and it also comes with unbreakable eye protection and thermal protection. © MyJarsh The helmets would cost around Rs. 7500 but given its benefits and the relief it'll bring, the price tag is worth it. Also, after making AC helmets to help out industrial workers, they are now working on an AC biker helmet and the Telangana government promoted RICH has been supporting them throughout. The trio has already found takers for its pilot sales in the Indian Navy (dockyard workers) and Tata Motors and after receiving feedback, they are hoping to begin commercial production of industrial AC helmets soon. Now who can wait to get their hands on the 'coolest' helmet ever? We definitely can't. You can have a look at Jarsh Pluto here:

  17. Imagine how life would have been for a dead broke actor who positively rejected the idea of selling his power script, and wrote his own destiny to become a well known figure of all time. Steadily, 'Rocky Balboa' fixated us to his version of the American dream and filled our hearts with hope, belief and ambition. He broke the existing boilerplate about the modish version of Hollywood, instead, gave it an unfashioned, raw slant which many would have turned down then. On the likes of Marlon Brando and Al Pacino, 'Balboa' existed to be the greatest bull artist of all time! In the lines below, read about how Sylvester Stallone ignited the 'Rocky' in him to become a great actor and what followed years later as his charm faded away. Early Life Without Any Money © gigareel Born in a lower middle class family, Stallone spent his early years in Manhattan and had a difficult childhood due to being partially paralyzed from the time of his birth. At times he couldn't explain at first the reason behind his slurred speech and often faced rejection as a child. It was when he moved to Philadelphia and gained some university education, he started accepting the challenges both (physical and financial) all by his own. At one point in his early days as an adult, when he was left with no money and a shelter, he starred in a soft core pornography feature film titled 'The Party at Kitty and Stud's' and earned his first 200 dollars. But, that is not all about him. He knew he had to do more with his life and tried ways to explore it through whatever available sources he had. Then 'Hollywood' happened to him! Small Beginnings In Hollywood Right from his acceptance to go for uncredited roles in films like Pigeons (1970) as a party guest, Woody Allen's 'Bananas' (1971) as a subway thug, in psychological thriller 'Klute' (1971) as an extra dancing in a club, and in the Jack Lemmon film 'The Prisoner of Second Avenue' (1975) as a youth, and later doing supporting roles in 'Farewell', 'My Lovely', 'Capone' and 'Death Race 2000', Stallone tried his hands onto every small film which could keep up his survival. By then he hardly knew that something big was waiting for him in the days that followed. A self written script about a boxer changed Stallone's fate forever. The Script And Its Fate On March 24, 1975, Stallone witnessed the Muhammad Ali–Chuck Wepner fight. He later sat down for 20 long hours to write a script. After finishing the script, the challenge was to find someone who could make it into a film and take Stallone in the lead. After getting rejected by many studios, it was Irwin Winkler and Robert Chartoff who became interested in the script and offered Stallone US$350,000 for the rights. The actor rejected the offer and instead showed interest to be casted as the lead in the film. Post much negotiation; the producers agreed to his terms, 'Rocky' was born! The Academy Awards 1977 The film instantly became a huge hit and connected to masses. “If ever a recent offbeat film project had some high-horsepower sponsorship, it's 'Rocky'” wrote Variety about the film. The movie received both critical acclaim and a good viewership which further paved way for ten Academy nominations. The 49th Academy Awards (1977) was a memorable year for Stallone and his film, 'Rocky' defeated the highly lauded 'All The President's Men' and took away the Oscar for Best Film, Best Director and Best Editing. Glorious Years In Hollywood The success of 'Rocky' was mammoth and made Stallone a star to be chased. Renowned producers wanted to work with him for his avant-garde performance. However, Sylvester thought unorthodoxly and gave his first directorial debut the very next year after 'Rocky' was released. He went on to direct the 1978 film 'Paradise Alley' and later starred in 'F.I.S.T'. In 1979 he wrote, directed and starred in 'Rocky II' which grossed over 200 million dollars worldwide. When people just couldn't get enough of his mysterious and stony image, he launched a major franchise and termed it as 'Rambo'. After 'First Blood' (1982), three 'Rambo' sequels, 'Rambo: First Blood Part II' (1985), 'Rambo III' (1988) and 'Rambo' (2008), followed. Stallone's box office success was keeping his fans happy and contented with his skills and filmography and sooner he wrote, directed, and starred in two more sequels to the series: 'Rocky III' (1982) and 'Rocky IV' (1985). These two characters of 'Rocky' and 'Rambo' have been portrayed by Stallone in a total of 11 films. Heavy Duty Workout And Preparation For Films © konbini With each film, Stallone kept a robust yet different physical appearance. His exuberant training regimen often comprised of heavy duty exercises and that too for six days a week. For 'Rocky III', Stallone claims to have reduced his body fat percentage to as low as 2.8%. Before the shoot of 'Rocky IV' and 'Rambo II', Stallone received tough training from former Mr. Olympia, Franco Columbu. Unsuccessful Roles Though most of the 'Rambo', 'Rocky' films received overall positive reviews and made Stallone a star forever, he also chose to do some offbeat roles, not suiting his personality and therefore couldn't make him appear other than the man with a basso profundo voice. People still wanted to see more of the fighter in him and just couldn't accept the fact that he could be someone else than the one fighting inside the ring. Films like 'Rhinestone', 'Over The Top', 'Angels With Dirty Faces' and 'Cobra' failed at the box office and ultimately Stallone decided to rejuvenate the 'Rocky' franchise. 'Rocky V' got released, however, Stallone's career in Hollywood started sinking, due to many flop films over a short period of time. 2006–2008: Revisiting Rocky And Rambo © projectcasting Who could believe that Stallone still had something to do with the 'Rocky' series? In 2006, he made a comeback with 'Rocky Balboa' which was both a commercial and critical hit. Till date, people admire him for his power packed performance in the film and for the memorable monologue during a scene where Balboa indulges into a prompt conversation with his son, leaving the viewers teary eyed and motivated at the same time. In 2015, Stallone reprised his role as 'Rocky Balboa' in a spin-off-sequel film, 'Creed' which earned him his first Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor and also his third Academy Award nomination. Other than his Hollywood roles, he also appeared in a cameo in Bollywood movie 'Kambakkht Ishq'. Not many of his fans know that Stallone has also been an integral part of boxing promotion and his company 'Tiger Eye Productions', signed world champion boxers Sean O'Grady and Aaron Pryor. Due to extremely physically demanding roles Stallone also suffered some major injuries including a broken finger, injured neck which had to be supported through a metal plate and an injured eye. Stallone once said, “If you lead with your heart, lead with your heart, and it will carry you much further than your brains will.” Maybe, that has made him what he is today. An actor who believes his films are his life and so he does every single thing to make his films a great piece of art. From rags to riches, Stallone wrote his own life story and is an inspiration to millions of people throughout the world. There is never going to be another one like him!
  18. The crazy billionaire who sent a car into space- Elon Musk has always trolled the 'Flat Earth' theory and its believers. For those who have no idea what we are talking about, let us explain. We have always believed that the Earth is spherical, haven't we? That's what we are taught in schools and that is what scientists believe in too, thanks to photographic evidence. However, for some reason, some people believe that the Earth is indeed 'flat' and that the 'spherical/ round Earth' theory is just propaganda. These people are happily part of the 'Flat Earth Society'. Happy #EarthDay #earthday2017 to all of you! (P.S. It's still flat) pic.twitter.com/HrmtZiJrOn — Flat Earth Society (@FlatEarthOrg) April 22, 2017 And Elon has time and again tried to question the 'Flat Earth Society' because what is Elon Musk, if not witty and crazy? He even questioned the non-existence of a 'Flat Mars Society'. Why is there no Flat Mars Society!? — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 28, 2017 To this, the FES replied: Hi Elon, thanks for the question. Unlike the Earth, Mars has been observed to be round. We hope you have a fantastic day! — Flat Earth Society (@FlatEarthOrg) November 28, 2017 Although we all used to enjoy this banter between the two, Elon with his latest 'project' has debunked this theory, once and for all. With the launch of Space X's Falcon Heavy, which by the way carried a cherry red Tesla Roadster towards an orbit near Mars, Musk has managed to create history. And of course, he made sure that we saw it live. View from SpaceX Launch Control. Apparently, there is a car in orbit around Earth. pic.twitter.com/QljN2VnL1O — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 6, 2018 As you can see, the Earth is pretty much round and not at all flat. In fact, following the photos and videos that Elon posted, people became convinced that the whole Falcon Heavy mission was his way of destroying the Flat Earthers in the most savage way possible. But if you are thinking what are our words worth? We should tell you that the rest of the internet agrees with this. 1. Tsk, Tsk, Tsk *all people who for some reason believe the Earth is flat in utter disappointment* https://t.co/GTGAoCK2D5 — Dylan (@DylanPal5) February 6, 2018 2. Damn Right They Are. Look you can see the curvature of the Earth, I bet the flat Earthers are pissssed https://t.co/nQhr8wuO5x — Skyler Henson (@thatguysky13) February 6, 2018 3. They Sure Are! Flat earthers are onto you, Elon! ð #sarcasm pic.twitter.com/S89qS0ufnV — Lana Jelic (@LanaJelic) February 7, 2018 4. Stop It Already. Dude i just cant with people that still believe the earth flat. Idk if yall serious or just giving all of us a hard time. — Daveð (@PolloDave) February 7, 2018 5. Doesn't Look That Way Wait? I though everyone said the earth was flat?!?!?! ;) :P — Dos Gaming (@CD_DOS_Gaming) February 7, 2018 6. Aren't You Excited? Suck it Flat Earthers. #Starman pic.twitter.com/wkDyNEiNR8 — Sebastian Bell (@sepsis13) February 6, 2018 7. Crying & Angry At The Same Time. flat earth believers are crying https://t.co/ycputGXnQP — carter (@sorroxas) February 6, 2018 8. We Feel Bad For Them. Tough day at the office for flat eathers... https://t.co/rhzyWhmc9G — State of Mind (@StateofMindNZ) February 6, 2018 But obviously, the Flat Earth Society couldn't believe this to be true and they very conveniently called it fake. Here's what they tweeted: People who believe that the Earth is a globe because "they saw a car in space on the Internet" must be the new incarnation of "It's true, I saw it on TV!" It's a poor argument. Why would we believe any privately-held company to report the truth? — Flat Earth Society (@FlatEarthOrg) February 7, 2018 In fact, they even went ahead and called it a “good car AD”. Well, we can't wait to see how Elon replies to this. Till that happens, let us just sit back and enjoy this historic event taking place in space. Also, if you are free for the next 4 hours, you can watch the “Live Views of Starman” here:
  19. Let's face it; the upcoming Star Wars film has made fans a little nervous. With crazy amounts of reshoots and massive delay in the release of the trailer, everyone speculated if the movie is going to be any good. But we have news for you guys. The first teaser is here and it'll help you get rid of all your doubts and concerns. After waiting for months, Disney finally released the teaser during Super Bowl and we get our first look at a young Han, played by Alden Ehrenreich, signing up to be a pilot and confidently proclaiming that he's going to be the "best in the galaxy." Typical Han! © Lucasfilm While the video is just 45 seconds long, we get glimpses at the star-studded cast. What else do you expect from a teaser anyway? We see the beautiful Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke, who plays a character called Kira. © Lucasfilm We also see an extra AF fur coat- clad Donald Glover, who plays a young Lando Calrissian. © Lucasfilm The trailer also teases footage of the Millennium Falcon, Woody Harrelson and quick shots of everyone's favourite Chewbacca. © Lucasfilm And of course, the teaser is high on action and stunning visuals: ships, twisting trains, fight sequences et al. © Lucasfilm Have a look at the teaser: If you are left wanting for more (like the rest of us), the full trailer will be released tomorrow. Despite the delay in production and reshoots, the good news is that there is no change in the release date. As of yet, the movie is all set to hits theaters on May 25, 2018.
  20. The iPhone X is the most expensive device launched by Apple ever and owning one in today's economy is most definitely a luxury. It already costs $999 for the 64 GB version and costs even more if you choose to have higher storage. However, if you thought that the price-tag wasn't expensive enough, a limited edition of the smartphone was made just for the ultra rich. © Instagram Bentley has just released a special edition iPhone X that has 18 karat gold on its rear glass and on the ring that surrounds the camera module. Bentley also removed the Apple logo and replaced it with their iconic winged logo, which looks quite sexy, if you ask me. I'm not a huge fan of luxury smartphones, however, this is probably the first device that has been designed with taste. The rear glass has some patterns running through it that gives it a distinct and unique look. A post shared by Tech Maniack™ (@techmaniack) on Jan 26, 2018 at 8:09pm PST If you're wondering what the price of the smartphone is, it is not yet known as only 100 units were produced and Bentley did not detail as to how it will be sold or given out. The handset cannot be bought from Bentley's website, so we are presuming that this special edition iPhone X can only be obtained if you buy a Bentley car. Bentley cars aren't cheap either and it would probably cost a fortune before you can get your hands on this slick smartphone. What do you think about the iPhone X Bentley Edition? If you had the moolah, would you buy one?
  21. The Toughest Men In India is almost here
  22. There's a revolution coming and it's going to break apart the pudding mix of misogynistic lyricism and alcohol dependency that they've been selling as rap. If you watched bikini-clad women, devouring a popsicle to songs about the colour of her lenses and thought it was what rap is all about, then there's a reality check coming your way. Over the last couple of years, my limited knowledge of what hip hop is all about has been through a double take. Now, it doesn't take a lyrical genius to rhyme a vernacular 'paani' with sunny (pronounced saani for greater convenience), but that is exactly what sells. Quick, easy and an almost instant noodle package of beats, lyrics and childlike fascination with all things unnecessary. © Facebook/Divine For a country that had its first rendezvous with rap almost five decades after the original movement in the West, the root of the art form was just as vaguely understood. The commercial upbeat party anthems glorifying drugs, alcohol and occasionally the female anatomy became instant hits and the banner bearers of rap in the subcontinent. Perhaps, commercial cinema saw rap as the golden hen that would set the cash bells ringing. As for the audience, anything that made your feet tap is good enough to climb the charts. It did not matter if the entire plot of the song revolved around 4 bottles of vodka. Naturally, party songs and rap music came to be synonymous; that is until a certain artist from the streets came along and challenged the whole premise. The original Hip-Hop and Rap movement in the USA was a medium of expression that came from a largely oppressed class that grew up trading skills in survival. For most rappers in the West, their music was their protest, their revolution. Nothing challenged the system more than their own art that found followers turning it into their anthems. Poverty, corruption, racism and sometimes even deep-rooted aggression against the system of bias – rap helped give all of it, quite literally, a giant f--- you. Even though the interpretation of the art here in the country began with rhyming words about nothing in particular and up-tempo beats to get a wedding started, it is slowly changing with the tide. Rappers are no longer symbols of wealth and fancy cars that aimlessly drive around the city, spewing misogyny. The new wave is closer to the streets and the struggle, much like the artists themselves. Twenty-one-year-old rapper from Maximum City, Deylyn Noronha says that “for a lot of people out there, rap is just a form of art where you use a few random words that rhyme and add a few punchlines and a nice catchy beat and that's it. Maybe that's enjoyable to a lot of people, but for me rap is meant to be meaningful. I want it to make me think.” © Facebook/Naezy That there is more to rap than showing off wealth has already been established. But what is the Indian rap scene all about? Any art that is relatable will find itself admirers. Familiarity goes a long way in expression and that is exactly what is brewing in multiple clubs, open mics and streets around the country. Vernacular languages are starting to attract the fever of matching syllables and counting beats. If there is a problem, a situation, maybe even anger or outrage against the system, language is no longer a barrier. People are stumbling upon their own unique styles, in a language that they can think in. The whole picture is no longer about finding a break; it's about creating your own. Gully boy, Vivian Fernandes, who shot to fame for bringing rap to the streets thinks that the time has come for the art form to move away from the obscene identity that Bollywood had so created. Bombay, by itself, is a huge platform for emerging rappers and street artists. A melting pot of cultures, languages and the miscellaneous problems that haunt a metro, it is no surprise that there is a steady and growing underground rap movement. The new radical faces of rap come from the dingy and ruthless corners, where there is more reliance on the chaos than in law and order. Naturally, survival is a feat in the gulleys and chawls; the creases in the city that is looked over like a badly-ironed shirt. © Facebook/Divine Platforms like YouTube have made it even simpler for emerging artists to get out there and show what it is really up. There's fifteen-year-olds finding their aggression, maybe a story to tell and heading out to shoot a video on their cell phones for their creative project. More than ever, there is a certain draw especially for young boys and girls to the idea of rapping. The creative freedom that rap allows in telling a story or even just to put a message across is massive. Particularly, there is no pressure to match an industry standard or to be as good as a certain Demigod of the art, rap is all about self-expression. Upcoming rap artist from Bombay, Brian Kansara found his inspiration in a friend, watching him freestyle, he says, made him want to write his own rap. For Brian, rap in India has a lot of potential. “There are some good artists who talk about real stuff in their songs and balance it well with good music, but they are underrated. There is scope for growth but not until people start appreciating rap music for what it really is.” There is a good degree of truth to his words. Right until Divine and Naezy changed what was already known about rap, it had a limited appeal to a certain kind of crowd and Bollywood strayed far from changing it. With artists like Divine signing the rights to a movie ('Gully Boy') that would tell his story, we're looking at a much bigger impact in the coming few years. Thane-based producer at The Hip Hop Movement, Virat Pawar, who is currently working on an album featuring RnB artists thinks that the movie will take the whole movement to another level. “The movie Gully Boy is going to change a lot of things. In the next five years, we might see major Hip Hop acts happening and probably more rappers from underground making it to the top.” Art by itself screams to be understood. When it finds itself limited to only a certain kind of expression, it is no longer art but a ritual. With the changing scenario that rap is finding itself in, it won't be long before India has its own mainstream rap movement. And hey, it's about freakin' time we braced ourselves for it.
  23. It's been days since India's biggest reality show 'Bigg Boss 11' saw its conclusion, but fans are still going gaga over the latest happenings updated by their favourite contestants. Hina Khan, who had a live chat with her fans yesterday, also caught up with Vikas Gupta and Priyank Sharma. The meet was arranged by Hina's current flame Rocky Jaiswal at a mall in Mumbai. Hina, of course, was more than happy when she met her admirers.

Other contestants were also partying hard, as Arshi Khan threw a 'Bigg Boss 11' bash where she invited everyone from the television fraternity.
  24. You'd be forgiven for thinking that Facebook's turned the world upside down with the announcement that it would be tweaking what we see in our newsfeeds. It's become a rather controversial topic, with everyone, from users to the chaps who manage digital media, to social media gurus, wondering what it means for them. In a nutshell, you could expect less news and viral video content, with more stuff from your pals showing up, as well as content that's likely to spark off 'meaningful social interactions'. All that, and more - first mentioned in a financial results conference call back in November 2017 and then again in a blog post by Mark Zuckerberg on January 12 this year - has really sent the digital publishing world (and social media addicts) scrambling to see what Facebook's up to. And here's what's really happening. Here's Where It All Started © Reuters In the financial reports call we mentioned, Zuckerberg spoke about how interaction with friends and family is good for our well-being. He went on to say that Facebook would be responding to that by focusing not just on content users consume 'passively', but on stuff that 'builds community'. And then, last week Zuckerberg put up a blog post saying that Facebook had been receiving feedback from users unhappy how news and content from brands had been 'crowding out the personal moments that lead us to connect more with each other'. Innocuous enough? Absolutely not! Facebook's not just a social media goliath, but for many users, it might as well be the entire Internet. A lot of us rely on it not just to go 'awww' on a friend's new puppy pics, or to post selfies at a metal gig, but also to find out about what's happening. News publishers, brands we love, meme pages, pubs, and cafes - everyone's on Facebook for a reason. And you have to admit, even if you aren't addicted to social media, Facebook's a great medium for finding out what's happening around you - from controversial opinion pieces to memes that skewer politicians, to what your favorite band is up to. But all that is about to change. What Does Facebook's New Strategy Mean For Your Newsfeed? © Youtube In Zuckerberg's own words, “I'm changing the goal I give our product teams from focusing on helping you find relevant content to helping you have more meaningful social interactions. We started making changes in this direction last year, but it will take months for this new focus to make its way through all our products. The first changes you'll see will be in News Feed, where you can expect to see more from your friends, family and groups. As we roll this out, you'll see less public content like posts from businesses, brands, and media. And the public content you see more will be held to the same standard - it should encourage meaningful interactions between people.” Woah! Quite a stunning change in direction, isn't it? And what does it mean for you? Well, Zuckerberg's already explained it quite well, but here's what you can expect: Your newsfeed will contain less content from brands and news publishers, you'll see fewer posts designed solely to 'go viral', and content that draws more likes but fails at garnering comments might become less visible. And of course, fewer of those 'people slipping on ice' and 'you won't believe what she did' videos (we're suddenly thinking this might not be all that bad a thing after all). Basically, viral for the sake of viral is bad, mere likes are meh, and comments and active discussions are good. Is There Any Other Reason For Facebook To Overhaul Your Newsfeed? © Lavoz Even though Zuckerberg admits he expects the latest tweaks to lead to people spending less time on Facebook and even lesser engagement, he says the time we do spend will be 'more valuable' and that “If we do the right thing, I believe that will be good for our community and our business over the long term too.” Are we buying that? Not entirely, nope. Call us conspiracy theorists, but we reckon Facebook's new move isn't all about a giant corporation being altruistic. It's probably also got a lot to do with the criticism they've been facing over Facebook's role in spreading 'fake news' that may even have ended up influencing the US presidential elections. But there could be another reason as well. What do you think will happen when brands and content publishers realize their posts aren't getting as much traction as earlier? No, nobody's about to quit Facebook in a petulant fit worthy of Eric Cartman. Facebook might be too darn big for that and some say the 'bye-bye, FB' boat has long sailed. Instead, they're more likely to boost spending on ads and promoted posts. In a way, this could be a win-win for Facebook. They can appear to be more concerned about the users and at the same time, increase their ad revenues. What Long-Term Changes Will We See? © Facebook People are divided over what the new Newsfeed algorithms would mean in the long run. Some, like The Atlantic's Franklin Foer, say that while there would be 'pain and heartbreak' for a while, Mark Zuckerberg might have done news publishers a favor in the long-term by forcing them to rethink their dependence on what is a monopoly. At the same time, others are warning that by reducing the visibility of posts by reputed publishers and making more users dependent on friends and family, Facebook might, unwittingly, make the 'alternative facts' issue worse. Yup, just when you thought that couldn't get worse, the New York Times says Facebook's tests in some nations have seen the reach of fake news increase. But, while only time will tell how things turn out eventually, here's hoping Mark Zuckerberg is right and that the changes will be for the better - we guess Facebook's horde of data and its massive teams of researchers know what they're talking about!
  25. When it comes to condoms, I feel like we've seen everything and every kind of flavour. But still, there is so much scope for innovation and the makers take full advantage of that. Whenever a new wacky flavour is released, we think that it can't be topped, but nope we're pleasantly surprised when the next one comes along. Condoms are extremely important, obviously, and condom companies have made sure time and again that they aren't boring. There are so many flavours in the market, everything from strawberry to coffee has been covered. But the companies keep pushing themselves to innovate and keep on broadening their horizons. Remember the 'achaar' flavoured condom from a few months ago? Well, that was the most exciting – and desi – flavour I had ever seen, but this new flavour may just have topped it. Adrak and honey. Who even comes up with this? I really want to attend and observe one of these condom flavour meetings, I think it would be quite entertaining. Inspired by every Indian's favourite thing in the whole world, this is honestly the best flavour for us, especially when in this cold weather. Perfect way to get cosy, isn't it? Just get 'chai-patti' and milk to bed, and you're set for the night. This flavour is so absurd and hilarious that it has everyone talking. People are making funny puns or just suggestion more stuff, and the best part is the company is actually replying to all the comments. Perfect For That. But, isn't crying normal? Very Compelling. Too Innovative To Handle We Now Know What The Next Flavour Will Be. Why Not Both? Who Doesn't Want Some Herbal Pleasure? Are There, Though? Perfect For Every Kind Of Date. Okay, this is most probably just a joke, but you never know. Maybe they will actually roll out 'adrak and honey' flavoured condoms. But, if they're real, are you interested in trying these? Or have they ruined 'chai' for you? But, honestly, what wacky flavour should we expect next? Palak paneer?
