  1. Nawaz Sharif appears in the accountability court on Sept 26. Photo: File ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has argued that the six-month deadline and appointment of a monitoring judge in the corruption cases against him and his family has no example in legal history. Speaking through his representative Zafir Khan after being indicted in the Avenfiled properties case in the accountability court on Thursday, Nawaz said a transparent trial is his right. "The Constitution protects my basic rights," he said in his statement, read out by Khan. The statement further said that the monitoring judge was especially appointed for this case. Nawaz was referring to the appointment of Supreme Court Justice Ijazul Ahsan as the monitoring judge to oversee the corruption cases against the Sharif family and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar. The Supreme Court, in its July 28 judgment in the Panama Papers case, gave the National Accountability Bureau six weeks to file the corruption cases against the Sharif family and Dar. Moreover, it gave the accountability court six months to wrap up the proceedings.
  2. Shahid Kapoor and his wife Mira Rajput is again giving us some serious couple goals. Shahid Kapoor is happy to admit that his ?queen? Mira Rajput rules his heart Shahid and Mira are one of the cutest couples in tinsel town. The Bollywood star?s posts speak of the love and compatibility that the couple share, which was all too evident on the Koffee With Karan season 5 Shahid-Mira episode that was loaded with their mushy moments. Shahid has shared a new click with his wife, and we are in awe of the King and his real-life queen. Shahid is playing King Rawal Ratan Singh in Sanjay Leela Bhansali?s period drama Padmavati, which also stars Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmini. Before the audience sees the actor sharing the screen with his Rani on the silver screen, he shared an adorable click with his real life ?queen? Mira Rajput. Instagram 579.2k Likes, 2,151 Comments - Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) on Instagram: ?The queen that rules my heart.? In the romantic photo, Shahid and Mira can be seen in the background holding King and Queen cards. The captioned will melt your heart! The queen that rules my heart. Shahid and his wife are giving some serious couple goals. Shahid Kapoor will be next seen in Padmavati which will release on December 1.
  3. A-lister, tall actor and Bollywood's (second) favourite Malhotra definitely knows how to dress to impress. If you don't believe us, just look at his past appearances here and here. He is also one of those rare male celebrities who can pull off a tricky trend or a complicated silhouette. And, even though his style isn't as adventurous as ... say ... a Ranveer Singh, or as hipster as Ranbir Kapoor—it definitely is still cool, relatable and above all, tailor-made to his personality. All of the above paired with his supermodel looks make him a stylish man consistently scoring A's in the fashion department. © Viral Bhayani Whether it's a pair of tattered-AF joggers, or statement sweatshirts, a tailored suit, an embroidered sherwani or a pair of dhoti pants by Manish Malhotra—Sid Malhotra can pull it off with ease. Reason? 1) He was a top male model working the circuit before he made his big Bollywood debut with Student Of The Year. And it's a proven fact that models often always have killer off-duty style. 2) Also, good Punjabi genes 3) And, last but definitely not least, good celebrity stylists helping him source top brands. © Viral Bhayani So, why are we talking about Sidharth Malhotra now? Because he just proved that a red kurta with subtle gold embroidery is the manliest thing you can wear this festive and wedding season. Not convinced yet? Hear us out! We (men) often tend to gravitate towards obvious (and cliché) colours like white, off-white, black, grey or midnight blue especially when it comes to festive wear. Why? Because it's easy. Because it'll always look good (at least in our head). Because girls will easily be impressed! © Viral Bhayani So, why are Sid Malhotra's risque blood red kurta paired with dhoti pants and brown sandals so important? Because it showcases a sense of sartorial evolution that is very much needed if we ever want to try out fresh new fashion. It is also a great alternative to the same-old-same-old festive looks. And, trust us when we say it, that you don't have to be Sid to pull it off. Pro-tip: Wear skinny churidars if you think you can't pull off dhoti pants or wear a pair of tapered jeans (for Christ's sake), but just try it once. Because you might just end up with your Alia Bhatt!
  4. Arguably the greatest Indian cricketer to have ever graced the game, Sachin Tendulkar terrorised opposition bowlers and won over fans for his batting prowess. If his artistry with the willow took the Indian team to new heights, his calm and composed demeanor helped him establish a fanbase every cricketer can only dream of. Not the one to lose his cool, Tendulkar recently was seen lashing out at Twitter after a fake account of his daughter Sara hogged the limelight for a controversial tweet. © Twitter Aimed at Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar, the twitter account named 'SaraSachin_rt' tweeted: "Everyone knows that Sharad Pawar NCP looted Maharashtra State but little known that he tried Center too #MallyaNamesPawar". The tweet, from the fake account, took the micro-blogging website by storm, with several NCP workers even seeking an explanation from the Little Master. While the NCP sought a probe into the issue, Tendulkar issued a statement and clarified that her daughter had nothing to do with it. I reiterate the fact that my children Arjun & Sara are not on twitter. We request @Twitter to remove all such accounts at the earliest (1/2) — sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) October 16, 2017 Taking to Twitter, the former Indian cricketer tweeted: "I reiterate the fact that my children Arjun & Sara are not on twitter. We request @Twitter to remove all such accounts at the earliest.” Impersonation wreaks havoc, creates misunderstanding & traumatises us. I appeal to the platforms to take corrective measures immediately 2/2 — sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) October 16, 2017 “Impersonation wreaks havoc, creates misunderstanding & traumatises us. I appeal to the platform to take corrective measures immediately,” he said in another tweet. In the wake of the retired cricketer's clarification, NCP leader Jitendra Awhad said that attempts to malign the image of his party's leaders would not be allowed. “We are quite sure that Ms Sara has not tweeted this. But as Mr Tendulkar himself clarified the matter, we will lodge a cyber complaint against these unknown trolls who are misleading the people. The police should take action against these paid trolls,” Awhad was quoted as saying by the Asian Age.
  5. The modern era of cricket has brought numerous cricketers to fore, but there are only a few who can match the exploits of Virat Kohli on the cricket field. His rise in international cricket didn't just see him succeed MS Dhoni as Team India captain, but it also earned him an envious fanbase across the globe. Today, he is ranked No. 1 in the list of top batsmen in both ODIs and T20s. A formidable name in international cricket, Kohli undeniably rules the hearts of cricket fans ranging from Bollywood stars to prominent politicians. But, while he continues to grow his fanbase, the Indian batting sensation, himself, is not averse to letting everyone know about his fanboy moments. And, a similar case was highlighted by the 28-year-old on Twitter recently. The right-handed batsman is known for his camaraderie with Bollywood bigwigs, and, on 17 October, he shared a picture with his favourite singer, Arijit Singh. Pure fanboy moment for me. What an amazing person he is. No one has captivated me with their voice like this man. God bless you Arijit. ðð — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) October 17, 2017 "Pure fanboy moment for me. What an amazing person he is. No one has captivated me with their voice like this man. God bless you Arijit," Kohli tweeted. Arijit is one of the premier singers and music composers of India and made a huge name for himself in Bengali film music and subsequently in Hindi cinema as well. AT FULL TIME! @imVkohli's All Hearts beat All Stars 7-3! #CelebrityClasico — Virat Kohli Fan Club (@TeamVirat) October 15, 2017 Apart from meeting Arijit, Kohli's rapport with Bollywood was also visible during the charity football match between Indian cricketers and B-town stars dubbed as the 'Celebrity Clasico'. The All Hearts team, led by Kohli, ran riot to secure an emphatic 7-3 win over the All Stars - captained by Abhishek Bachchan.
  6. Widely regarded as one of the greatest spinners of all time, legendary spinner and former India captain and coach Anil Kumble turns 47 today. His long career as a cricketer and a coach, spanning nearly two decades, has served as an inspiration for upcoming cricketers and spinners across India and the world as well. Just like any other regular Indian kid, Kumble started playing cricket on the streets with his friends, but he was anything but ordinary. He joined the Young Cricketers Club at the age of 13 and was nicknamed "Jumbo" by his teammates because they felt his deliveries were as fast as a jumbo jet. © Facebook Kumble made his debut for his home state Karnataka in 1989 where he took four wickets on his debut, which left everyone mighty impressed. But it was in 1999 when Kumble accomplished a feat that transformed his career for good. He took 10 wickets in a single inning to help India beat Pakistan at Delhi's Feroz Shah Kotla stadium and became only the second cricketer ever to do so. Kumble took 619 wickets in Test cricket and 337 in ODIs and was appointed as the captain of the Indian Test team in 2007. The legendary leg spinner known for his accuracy and pace retired from ODI cricket in 2008. © Facebook He continued to remain associated with the sport as he served as the President of the Karnataka State Cricket Association. He also was the coach of the Indian men's cricket team but his tenure as coach was a short one. Even though during his tenure India managed some impressive feats against New Zealand, England, Bangladesh and Australia in Test matches at home and also reached the final of the ICC Champions Trophy, he decided to not continue in the post. In a statement that sent shockwaves across the nation, Kumble admitted that his reason for quitting as coach was due to differences between him and skipper Virat Kohli. © The Quint On his special day today, members of the cricketing fraternity, both current and former took to Twitter to wish Kumble. But the most special one out of the lot was Sehwag's wish. On Dhanteras, wishing one of India's greatest Dhan @anilkumble1074 bhai a very happy birthday. Jai jai Shiv Shambho, Happy Birthday Jumbo ! — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 17, 2017 Wish you a very happy birthday, Kumbels!

In all internationals Kumble has dismissed deSilva most times - on 14 occasions! — Mohandas Menon (@mohanstatsman) October 17, 2017
  7. Our 20s are perhaps the most important years of our life, at least in terms of our career. It's that time of one's life where usually, you get your first job, learn a thousand lessons and if you are lucky enough, you might even realize what your ultimate goal in life is going to be. But of course, the amount of hard work that this decade of your life requires you to put in is what we consider insane. Or at least, we did till now. Hard work and passion got a new meaning when we learnt about Varun Khullar, an Indian music producer and DJ. And trust us when we say this, he's unlike any other DJ you've seen. © Facebook (Varun Khullar) Varun is India's first differently-abled DJ and the world's second after Sir Paul Johnson. © Paul Johnson_5 Magazine 3 years back, in 2014, Varun was a regular 24-year-old pursuing a marketing course. Just like people his age, he too was a travel freak and his favorite destinations to spend his vacations were the hills. He secured a marketing job with a firm in Gurgaon while his passion for music took a back seat. But an accident in the year 2014 changed his life and career. On a June trip to Manali with a group of friends, all was well and good as they drove through the mountains, until 4th of June. At 4:30 in the morning, an accident with a truck resulted in their car falling in the deep abyss of the mountain shaft. They fell 25 feet below the mountain road only to be saved by a solid stone protruding from the mountain. Luckily enough, the truck was an army truck, so Varun and his friends were rescued immediately from the spot and were admitted to the nearest hospital. Although they were all out of danger, Varun's fate had something else. His spinal cord was injured badly which meant that for the rest of his life, he would be paralyzed below the waist. © Facebook (Varun Khullar) Paralysis, whether partial or complete, is one of the worst conditions known to mankind. Besides the physical trauma, the thoughts that cross one's mind could easily be suicidal. For the next two years, Varun's life was limited within the four falls of his home for two years resulting in depression. But eventually, he decided to make the best out of the fact that he was alive. He started learning music production on his own by watching YouTube videos and reading books by different artists for two years. © The Better India He then went on to apply at all the best DJ schools in India only to be rejected by them. He finally made it to a DJ school- ILM Academy in Gurgaon that marked the beginning of his career as a DJ. His first gig, however, did not come easy. After lots of rejections, exchange of emails and depressing moments, Varun finally got his first chance at one of the top hotels in Delhi. © Facebook (Varun Khullar) Soon he became a sensation and an inspiration to youngsters all over the country. So much so, that he will now be opening the multi-genre music festival 'Time Out 72', which will have performances by American singer Jason Derulo and Dutch DJ Martin Garrix, in Goa in the month of December this year. Varun is currently working as a resident DJ for Kitty Su, ranked the 87th best club in the world, owned by Lalit Group of Hotels and Keshav Suri and goes by the name of DJ Amish. © Facebook (Varun Khukkar) His never-say-die spirit is a constant which clearly reflects in his words. In an interview with 'The Better India' he said, “If you want to achieve anything, NOTHING COMES EASY. I am not an expert, even I am learning. You only learn from your mistakes. It will take time, took me 4 years. Never forget, dreams are all we're made of.” In case you want to get in touch with him, you can write to
  8. Parents always want to protect their kids from anything and everything under the sun and it's quite understandable, because they want to keep them secure. Reasonable. But what happens when this love triggers their overprotective instincts and they set out to control their kids' lives? We guess John Cena, Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz might be in a better position to answer this, since that's exactly what they will be doing in the upcoming comedy movie 'Blockers'. © Universal Pictures Since time immemorial, Hollywood has been making big bucks by stressing on the importance of prom night in teenagers' lives and how their parents freak out, imagining their kids losing their virginity one fine day (or should we say night). So what makes this one special that the rest? The mighty John Cena as an overprotective dad, who even dares to chug beer through his (I can't even) butt for his daughter? Of course! But this isn't the only 'special' element. The movie smartly plays around the concept of using emojis for conveying sexual messages – you know just millennial things – and how poor parents are trying hard to decode those *** emojis. © Universal Pictures The premise of the movie is slightly cliché; a trio of parents who have seen their daughters grow up together, stumble upon a group chat where the daughters are busy chatting through emojis. Turns out, the three have signed a '*** pact' where they will lose their virginity on their prom night. Well, definitely the shock was bigger than walking in on kids masturbating. So the parents decided to ruin the prom night for their kids and go to extreme lengths to stop them from having ***. We wonder if the thought of teaching their kids to have safe *** ever crossed their minds, it could have been a less painful option, especially for John Cena. While Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz share a great comic timing, professional wrestler John Cena managed to tickle our funny bones as well with his hilarious antics. 'Pitch Perfect' writer Kay Cannon wears the Director's hat for this film which stars Kathryn Newton, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Gideon Adlan as the beautiful daughters. The coming-of-age comedy movie is expected to release on April 6, 2018.
  9. Ever since the trailer of 'The Punisher' came out last month, people have primarily been discussing two things – Marvel Comics and actor Jon Bernthal, whose character Frank Castle will be seen going to extreme lengths to avenge his family's murder. While we were still recuperating from the action-packed dark trailer of 'The Punisher', Jon is already out with the next bone-chilling trailer of his upcoming release 'Sweet Virginia'. After flooring us with his performances in 'The Walking Dead', 'Baby Driver', 'Wind River' and 'Snitch'; Jon is all set to take us on another nightmarish ride where you will witness him unleashing his innermost demons. © Oddfellows Entertainment Although the trailer is slightly towards the milder side when it comes to showcasing brutality, it still has massive potential to mess you up both psychologically and emotionally. Based on Ben and Paul China's 'Black List' script, 'Sweet Virginia' revolves around Sam (Jon Bernthal), a former rodeo star who now runs a motel in Alaska. He soon befriends a mysterious guy, Elwood (played by Christopher Abbott), who is responsible for wrecking havoc and raising hell in the town. However, Sam is blissfully unaware about his friend being the one responsible for the bloodbath. As the truth starts surfacing and secrets are revealed, Sam finds his inner dark impulses overpowering him, something he had kept hidden under the garb of peace all this while. Jon is at his usual best in the trailer and this movie is definitely special for him as he acknowledged in a tweet that “this film is close to my heart.” Sweet Virginia - Official Trailer l HD l IFC Films.This film is my heart. I hope y'all dig it. Big. Love. J. — Jon Bernthal (@jonnybernthal) 13 October 2017 Besides Jon, who has earlier showed his acting prowess and potential to be a badass guy, Abbott too has done a fabulous job in this nail-biting trailer. Although, we don't think his notorious avatar should come as a surprise, since he has earlier proved how terrifying he can be in 'A Most Violent Year' and 'It Comes at Night'. Directed by Jamie M. Dagg, the movie also features Imogen Poots, Odessa Younng, Jared Abrahamson, Darcy Laurie and Rosemarie DeWitt. The movie is slated for a November 17 release and our excitement now knows no bounds.
  10. Indian pacer Ashish Nehra's announcement of his retirement from cricket has sent shockwaves across the nation and left a series of broken hearts. The 38-year-old cricketer is included in the Indian squad for the T20 series against New Zealand in November, which is set to be his swansong series. © twitter His decision has triggered a lot of emotions and people are taking to Twitter to express their dismay. Ashish Nehra will retire on November 1st on his home ground. Thank you Nehra Ji for everything specially the 6/23 in 2003 World Cup — Abhishek ð®ð³ #408 (@ImAbhishek7_) October 11, 2017 As expected, Ashish Nehra will bid international cricket goodbye at his home ground Ferozeshah Kotla on November 1 with a T20 against NZ. — G. S. Vivek (@GSV1980) October 11, 2017 There were also some puns that floated around. Ashish Nehra retires from International cricket. End of Anehra!#NehraJi #nehra — Naresh Gaur (@nareshgaur11) October 12, 2017 Ashish Nehra will retire after the NZ series. Post-retirement, Ashish will write his autobiography titled "My experiments with tooth". — Bollywood Gandu (@BollywoodGandu) October 11, 2017 Then there were the goodbyes Always found Ashish Nehra's career fascinating. Whenever you thought he was done - he muscled on. Now, he's finally done - you wonder why. — Sorabh Pant (@hankypanty) October 12, 2017 Ashish Nehra retires from International cricket. End of Anehra!#NehraJi #nehra — Naresh Gaur (@nareshgaur11) October 12, 2017 It's going to be a bittersweet moment for Nehra and his fans as he will be retiring in his home ground of Delhi. It's going to be an end of a(Nehra), after all.
  11. If there's one big thing we're always proud of saying is that @apnabidu, Juggy Dada is made in India. Plus, he's lived quite the life till now. Starting off with his stint as a chef in a hotel, to his modelling debut (thanks to a random guy at a bus stop), to becoming the 60-year-old badass he is today—he's had a life that's a little too legendary to be true. Even his dressing abilities...he wore tinted full frames before anyone else, sported relaxed fit jeans before Salman Khan took over and turned golf caps/bandanas into his everyday business. So, without any surprises, just recently, he captured the front seat with another brilliant outfit! © Viral Bhayani Featuring a primary striped shirt topped with a polka-dotted suit jacket, befriending slim-fit (or relaxed?) trousers, a bandana around the neck, textured derby shoes and his signature purple tinted frames—Mr. Shroff pulled out a great move with this one. That said, we have some major issues with his horse riding fanny pack on the waist. There's no way in hell we're leaving this faux pas unturned. © Viral Bhayani Jackie, of course, is being Jackie here. There's no denying that. But if any of your brains bear a little bit of #StyleInfo, you'd be waiting for the fanny pack to go off your sights. It looks so out of place, that we're scared to say—we can't even throw it in the forced fit territory. But well, as it is with signature styles of movie stars, some style moves are made to ensure they stand out. Going by that ideology, we're giving this outfit a nod (if not a happy one).
  12. Indian Cricket's next big star Hardik Pandya who has taken the world by storm with his exceptional skills turns 24 today. In the two years since he started playing for India, the young Baroda lad has repeatedly proved himself as an indispensable part of the Indian Cricket Team by making key contributions in domestic games, IPL and even international matches. The cricketer has earned widespread appreciation for his match-finishing abilities and is being hailed as the seam bowling all-rounder that India has been looking for since Kapil Dev. After debuting in the limited over competitions, he made his debut in Test cricket on the tour of Sri Lanka and started off with a mere fifty. But in 2017, Pandya took his game a further notch. Just this year alone, his average stands at 39.44 with one century and five half centuries and the youngster has bagged three man of the match awards. He got his first man of the series award after helping India beat Australia 4-1 in the recent ODI series. In the five-match series, he scored 222 runs in 4 innings and took six wickets. He then went on to set the tone for India's win with winning 83 in the series opener in Chennai. But that wasn't enough. He also won a fluent 78 in Indore as India took a 3-0 lead in the series. Interestingly, he shares his birthday with the Shahenshah of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan and also took to his Twitter to wish the superstar. A very Happy Birthday to the evergreen @SrBachchan ji. ð Great privilege to share my birthday with you and to have shared these memorable moments with you ðð½ — hardik pandya (@hardikpandya7) October 11, 2017 But this hell of a cricketer was himself flooded with wishes on Twitter.

While Hardik went on to play for India, Krunal is still looking for a place in the national team. They play for Mumbai Indians and Baroda in Indian Premier League and Ranji Trophy and have worked extremely hard to reach where they are currently.
  13. Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan turns 75 today, and the Twitterverse is abuzz with an outpouring of love for Big B. Several Bollywood stars, cricketers and fans took to the platform to wish Amitabh Bachchan a very happy birthday. Ranveer Singh declared the day as 'Amitabh Bachchan Day'. John Abraham paid tribute to the legend with a picture from the past. Renowned producer Mohanlal sent some good wishes along. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted Amitabh Bachchan with wishes and prayers. Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya expressed excitement over sharing his birthday with Big B. Fans shared some golden pictures of Big B from the bygone days. Big B tweeted out his thanks, saying he was overwhelmed by all the love. To celebrate his 75th birthday, the legendary actor is off to Maldives with his family. Big B's son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai along with granddaughter Aaradhya were photographed at the security check of a Mumbai airport on Tuesday morning. Abhishek and Aishwarya have reportedly planned a week-long celebration and supervised all the arrangements. With 15 Filmfare Awards, the latest one being in 2016 for Critics Award for Best Actor for 'Piku', Big B is the most nominated performer in any major acting category at Filmfare, with 41 nominations overall. After a mellow debut with 'Saat Hindustani', his first taste of success came in 1971 with 'Anand'. With 'Zanjeer' he established his footprint in the industry. 'Namak Haram', 'Abhimaan', 'Majboor', 'Chupke Chupke', 'Mili' and 'Deewaar' followed next, and there was no looking back since.
  14. The trailer of 'Padmavati' dropped yesterday setting off an unprecedented explosion and even after 24 hours, it's still the only thing that is ticking in B-town. Interestingly, the focus was less on 'Padmavati' and more on the handsome, brooding men, Shahid and Ranveer. At present it seems like the entire nation is blown away by the intense and crazy-eyed 'Khilji', as replay buttons are being brutally abused only to watch Ranveer's piercing eyes. © Viacom 18 Of course, comparisons are only natural and Ranveer sure does look like he's trying to tap his inner 'Khal Drogo'. © Twitter The trailer has done its job of boggling our minds and while the views continue to keep increasing, we are confident that this is going to being Ranveer's best work ever. It was even revealed that he had to consult a therapist to help him get out of the mindset of 'Khilji', clearly proving that this role will redefine his career. Blownnnnnnnn away by the #PadmavatiTrailer !!!!! Noooo words!!!!! Epic epic epic @shahidkapoor @deepikapadukone @RanveerOfficial !!!!! — Alia Bhatt (@aliaa08) October 9, 2017 Sanjay Leela Bhansali is the bonafide master craftsmen of Indian cinema ....breathtaking and magnificent visuals all over #PadmavatiTrailer — Karan Johar (@karanjohar) October 9, 2017 Even Rajamouli, the ace director of the celebrated 'Baahubali' franchise took to social media to express his awe. Insanely beautiful !!! Each frame etched to perfection by the master craftsman. #PadmavatiTrailer — rajamouli ss (@ssrajamouli) October 9, 2017 His special mention was for none other than our beloved 'Khilji' . @RanveerOfficial looks menacing and frightening yet can't take my eyes off him.. — rajamouli ss (@ssrajamouli) October 9, 2017 Ranveer has owned the internet with his dramatic, crazy look and being the humble bee that he is, a heartfelt letter from his end was out there in no time. â¤ï¸ð A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Oct 9, 2017 at 2:03pm PDT He even got a tad bit emotional during a live session he held with his fans after the trailer came out. Updates | Ranveer Singh thanking his fans ( he is getting a little bit emotional ð­♥ï¸) — Ranveer Singh #TB (@RanveerSinghtbt) October 9, 2017 The movie is all set for a December 1st release and we can already predict all the awards flowing towards Ranveer. At this point we can only wonder if there is anyone else in the industry who has a chance of competing with that level of brilliance. Keep thinking about it….while we go watch the trailer AGAIN!
  15. Chetan Bhagat was once known as a celebrated author, then a columnist, recently a reality show judge, but lately he's only been known for using social media to put freshly laundered logic on troll mode. Since Diwali is around the corner, like every year, the country is divided on ban on crackers. The Supreme Court eventually flagged a green Diwali and put a ban on crackers for a while. All temporary licenses to sell firecrackers stand cancelled. No sale of firecrackers in Delhi-NCR from today: Haripriya Padmanabhan, Lawyer — ANI (@ANI) October 9, 2017 Pollution levels are obviously alarmingly high, especially in Delhi NCR, so this ban makes all the sense to everyone, except Bhagat. SC bans fireworks on Diwali? A full ban? What's Diwali for children without crackers? — Chetan Bhagat (@chetan_bhagat) October 9, 2017 His idea is simple. It is a part of our tradition and hence, the ban should be lifted. Oh, he also politely compared this to a few other things. Can I just ask on cracker ban. Why only guts to do this for Hindu festivals? Banning goat sacrifice and Muharram bloodshed soon too? — Chetan Bhagat (@chetan_bhagat) October 9, 2017 People started questioning his logic and in no time, everyone had some peanuts for his thoughts. Your examples of practices integral to those observances; banning them would be like banning lamps onDiwali. Firecrackers are unholy add-ons — Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) October 9, 2017 Because people don't get asthama attacks, chest congestion, aggrevated bronchitis on Bakrid-Muharram. Soch samajh ke compare karo bhai. — Dharmesh Dixit (@theDDixit) October 9, 2017 The part where he says that instead of banning, regulation should be in place is correct. However, one needs to understand that we have surpassed that stage. The insanity that drives people to not understand what is killing us has led the government to intervene and put a ban on it. Diwali is 1 day, 0.27% of year. pollution comes from 99.6% days of poor planning and regulation. Fix that. Not make 1 religion feel guilty. — Chetan Bhagat (@chetan_bhagat) October 9, 2017 There were many people who supported his logic and presented their side as well. I condemn diwali #crackerban !agree with @chetan_bhagat !does supreme Court have guts to ban eid goat sacrifice & muharram lashing on kids? — mj anirudh chawla (@rjanirudhchawla) October 9, 2017 What does "integral" mean? Slaughtering a goat is also symbolic or people would kill sacrifice their son. Why not cut a symbolic goat cake? — Sankrant Sanu सानॠ(@sankrant) October 9, 2017 Traditions, rituals are undoubtedly important as they hold value to people who believe in it. However, mixing a ban and infusing a religious angle to it, I am not sure if that serves any purpose here, considering the fact that religious uproars trigger something bigger than pollution hazard for this country. Be it any festival, the idea is to harmonise communities and spread peace, let's just try and focus on that.
  16. The 39-year-old Guevara was captured and executed by a CIA-trained unit of the Bolivian army on October 9, 1967. Photo: AFP SANTA CLARA: Tens of thousands of Cubans turned out on Sunday to pay tribute to Ernesto "Che" Guevara, the Argentine-born Marxist revolutionary and guerrilla leader, on the 50th anniversary of his death. An estimated 70,000 people thronged the streets outside a mausoleum in this town 300 kilometres (186 miles) east of the capital Havana which houses the remains of Guevara and of some of his former comrades. President Raul Castro, dressed in his general´s uniform, was among those attending the ceremony in Santa Clara, which was the site of a December 1958 battle that finally sent Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista into exile. President Raul Castro, dressed in his general´s uniform, was among those attending the ceremony in Santa Clara, which was the site of a December 1958 battle that finally sent Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista into exile. Photo: AFP Raul Castro fought alongside Guevara during the Cuban revolution led by his brother Fidel Castro. The 39-year-old Guevara was captured and executed by a CIA-trained unit of the Bolivian army on October 9, 1967. This year´s ceremony was the first in the absence of Fidel Castro, who died last year, and an excerpt from one of his speeches honouring Guevara was played for the crowd. The anniversary comes amid the dying gasps of other Latin American guerrilla movements such as the FARC in Colombia, which last year reached a peace deal with the government and recently disarmed. The 86-year-old Raul Castro took a back seat at Sunday´s ceremony to Miguel Diaz-Canel, who is expected to replace him as president next year. ´Che is still here´ Diaz-Canel, 57, denounced American "imperialism" in a speech and referred to increased tension in Cuba-US relations since Donald Trump became president. Cuba will "never negotiate away its principles or give in to blackmail," he said. Elena Gonzalez, a 56-year-old textile worker, was among those who turned up at the crack of dawn to pay her respects to Guevara. "Yes, we got up very early but it´s worth it," she said. "We´re keeping his example alive and his legacy of independence and sovereignty for Latin America and the world." "For me, Che is still here ? his life, his work, his example," said 79-year-old Luis Monteagudo, who fought alongside Guevara in the Congo and was wearing a white T-shirt with his picture. An estimated 70,000 people thronged the streets outside a mausoleum in this town 300 kilometres (186 miles) east of the capital Havana which houses the remains of Guevara and of some of his former comrades. Photo: AFP Che´s remains were transferred from Bolivia to Cuba in 1997 and interred in a mausoleum here which features a large bronze statue of the guerrilla leader. Born in the Argentine city of Rosario, Guevara travelled across Latin America in 1952 and 1953 ? a road trip that was immortalized in the 2004 film "The Motorcycle Diaries" ? and was shocked to see the economic disparity in the region. It convinced him that violence was necessary to overturn Latin America´s unjust social order. Spreading revolution His life changed dramatically when he met Fidel Castro in Mexico in 1955 and joined his guerrilla expedition to Cuba. In the early 1960s, Guevara worked with Castro to consolidate the revolution, supervising the repression of counter-revolutionaries, and even for a time heading the Central Bank and industry ministry. But his key motivation was to spread revolution elsewhere. In 1965, he bid farewell to Cuba in a letter to Castro in which he resigned his posts and wrote: "Other nations of the world summon my modest efforts of assistance." After leading a group of Cuban revolutionaries fighting with Marxist guerrillas in the Congo, Guevara travelled to Bolivia in late 1966. Struggling with asthma, he led a small clutch of rebels in Bolivia for 11 months trying to spread revolution. But he was tracked, cornered and wounded in the mountains in a gun battle that wiped out most of his remaining forces. The Bolivian army and two Cuban-American Central Intelligence Agency agents captured him. He was executed in a schoolhouse in La Higuera the following day, October 9, 1967. The small revolution he had started in Bolivia died with him. Guevara remains omnipresent in Cuba, particularly visible in the iconic image of the bearded and beret-clad revolutionary that adorns posters and T-shirts the world over.
  17. An Indian fast bowler who had all the traits that made Pakistani fast bowlers a phenomenon, Zaheer Khan enthralled us all with his bowling might during his heydays, and after his retirement, he continues to be remembered as one of India's most-prolific bowlers of all time. He swinged the new ball and reversed the old. He did well on flat subcontinent pitches and relished the helpful ones away. And, if that wasn't enough, Zaheer's ability to control all three balls - SG, Duke and Kookaburra - was just phenomenal. Often compared to Wasim Akram, Zak didn't quite have his skills, but mentally, the left-arm seamer was as good as the Pakistani great. He knew how to get wickets at regular intervals. He also had an intuitive sense of timing before going for the kill. And, once a batsman showed him the slightest hint of a weakness, Zaheer preyed on it ruthlessly. That's probably the reason why he ended up claiming 311 scalps in Tests, 282 in ODIs and 17 in T20 Internationals. So, on Saturday, when the former Indian speedster turned 39, we weren't really surprised to witness the fanfare on the social media as cricketers, fans and celebs all came together to pour in the wishes for his birthday. Happy Birthday to one of India's greatest ever bowler and one of the sharpest cricketing brain, Gyaan Baba @ImZaheer #LastBachelorsBirthday — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 7, 2017 But, amongst them all, social media king Virender Sehwag once again stole the show. Taking to Twitter, the 'Nawab of Najafgarh' wished Zak by tweeting: "Happy Birthday to one of India's greatest ever bowler and one of the sharpest cricketing brain, Gyaan Baba #LastBachelorsBirthday". It was the witty hashtag in Sehwag's tweet that stood out from the rest, leaving everyone in splits. Zaheer, who got engaged to Sagarika Ghatge earlier this year, is set to get married to the 'Chak De! India' star on 27 November - which explains Sehwag's funny hashtag. Apart from Sehwag, here's how twitterati wished Zaheer Khan on his 39th birthday: Happy birthday to a wily bowler , wonderful man and a great friend @ImZaheer .Have a great year Zak ! — VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) October 7, 2017 Wishing the ‘Sachin Tendulkar' of Indian fast bowling a very happy Birthday...have a good one ZK ðð — Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) October 7, 2017 Happy Birthday @ImZaheer. A top man who continues to hit plenty of high notes for Indian Cricket with the ðï¸in hand in the Commentary Box. — Hemang Badani (@hemangkbadani) October 7, 2017 Happy Birthday to one of India's all-time greatest ever pace bowlers, @ImZaheer! What is your favourite Zaheer bowling performance? — ICC (@ICC) October 7, 2017 Here's wishing Former #TeamIndia speedster @ImZaheer a very happy birthday. — BCCI (@BCCI) October 7, 2017 Wishing you a very Happy Birthday Zak Bhai @ImZaheer have a great oneð — ajinkyarahane88 (@ajinkyarahane88) October 7, 2017 This is one of my best memories of my debut with a special person & a friend for life! Happybday fella, shine on like u always do @ImZaheer — yuvraj singh (@YUVSTRONG12) October 7, 2017 Wishing @ImZaheer a Happy Birthday today and a wonderful year ahead. Any "jelly beans" to celebrate today Zak? ðð Best Wishes to you always — Alan Wilkins (@alanwilkins22) October 7, 2017 Happy birthday Captain Zaheer Khan. #DilDilliHai — Delhi Daredevils (@DelhiDaredevils) October 7, 2017
  18. It's been over four years since one of India's most destructive batsmen, Virender Sehwag, bowed out of international cricket. But after hammering the opposition bowlers all around the park, the former Indian opener seems to have found a new pitch as he continues to enthrall his fans with his ever-entertaining wit off the field. From unique birthday wishes or hilarious comparisons, Sehwag has continued to get the better of the opposition with a potent mix of fun, puns, sarcasm and also, what is now being labelled as, just simple 'Sehwagasm'. For a batsman whose fearless batting inspiring us all in his heyday, Sehwag seems to have adopted the same carefree approach on Twitter. And, his recent tweets that summed up his glorious career are a testimony to that. It is not always the words we say, that have the biggest effect. It is usually how we say them. — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 6, 2017 Posting on the micro-blogging website, Sehwag tweeted: "It is not always the words we say, that have the biggest effect. It is usually how we say them". Similarly in cricket, it is usually not a poor delivery that has an effect, it is usually how we smash them :) — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 6, 2017 He followed it up with another tweet that read: "Similarly in cricket, it is usually not a poor delivery that has an effect, it is usually how we smash them". Viru constructed an extraordinary career with a relentless quest, and a genius for boundary hitting. His uncomplicated approach - batting is all about scoring as many runs as quickly as possible - showed his sharp and street-smart cricket mind. With minimal footwork and maximum intent, he piled up over 17,000 runs in his international cricket career. What appeared risky to many was merely an opportunity for Sehwag in cricket - something his tweets highlighted perfectly.
  19. What's the first word that pops in your head when you hear the legendary words JOHN CENA? Wrestling? Muscle? Well, what if we told you that after you're done reading this it'll probably still be "muscle", but a different kind of muscle... the "muscle car" kind of muscle? Hang tight, John Cena has something in store for you. Those that love Cena but also love some quality road action will surely have a lot to say about his whips more than about his slick ring game, and - you - will - be - awed - by - what - you - see. Cena's car collection can give car collectors envy, but we're just showing these to you for automotive relief. Low key car enthusiast, Cena has a horde of vehicles in his garage and we've managed to uncover about 23 of them. Before the browsing begins, we'd like to mention Cena is an absolute American muscle man, from ring to road. Here goes! 1. 1966 Dodge Charger 426 Power: 425hp © Youtube/RamblinAround Intimidating, isn't it? Almost as if made for Cena himself, you know it means business when there's a Hemi engine thrown in, vroom, zoom to kingdom come! 2. 1969 AMC AMX Power: 315hp © FabWheelsDigest Blogspot One of only 32, this Big Bad Green mean machine is what could turn many green with envy. Cena pulling out of this one would be quite a sight. 3. 1969 COPO Chevrolet Camaro Power: 425hp Top Speed: 200kmph © Motor1 Chevy did the world a favour by building this red beauty, doesn't it look like it's just stepped hot out of a drag race? 4. 1969 Dodge Daytona Power: 425hp © Wheels This flaming orange beast is as feisty as a quick fight in the ring, anybody could need an "Attitude Adjustment" after taking it for a wild spin. 5. 1970 AMC Rebel The Machine Power: 340hp © Carswithmuscles Don't mistake its white exterior for lack of power, The Machine is an ultimate muscle car that could probably rip your hair off your head if it passes you by in action. 6. 1970 Buick GSX Power: 350hp © Mecum Cena sure likes to experiment with colours, even though power more or less remains constant, this yellow Buick GSX is a stunning vehicle inside out. 7. 1970 Chevrolet Nova Power: 300hp © Classiccars This was the second car that Cena bought. It was the first car that he drove legally. 8. 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator Power: 290hp © Heacockclassic Cena didn't buy this V8 monster manufactured by Ford until his later years. Raw power, right? 9. 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass Rallye 350 Power: 310hp © PicQuery The headlamps, the nostrils, the lemon yellow body work... absolutely everything about this vehicle screams power! 10. 1970 Plymouth Superbird Power: 390hp © Queautocompro Don't confuse this with the Dodge Daytona we mentioned above, the spoiler and the nose of the car can be deceiving but these two cars are world apart, yet equally powerful. 11. 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge Power: 370hp © ClassicDigest Another rarity, one in 68, the Cardinal Red Pontiac is one hell of a magnificent beast. 12. 1971 AMC Hornet SC/360 Power: 329hp © Wiki Commons This one is John Cena's absolute favourite, especially for a daily run. You're more like to catch him in the Hornet, getting groceries, than in any of his other cars. 13. 1971 Ford Torino GT Power: 370hp © Wikipedia A Cobra engine in a Ford? While this may have become okay later on, it wasn't in 1971. That's how you get 370hp. 14. 1971 Plymouth Road Runner Power: 300hp © Cardomain Much like the swift Roadrunner you watched as a kid on Cartoon Network, this Plymouth has some serious beep-beep skills, here and gone! 15. 1984 Cadillac Coupe Deville Power: 135hp © Usedcarlinks This vehicle doesn't sit in Cena's garage anymore but it was worth a mention because it was the first car he owned, and at the age of 14. Cena you thug! 16. 1989 Jeep Wrangler Power: 126hp © Streetside Classics The big guy got himself a big car after bagging his first major wrestling contract. 17. 1991 Lincoln Continental Power: 190hp © AutoHausFL This is the car that helped John Cena while he tried to make a career in wrestling. We all owe this Continental. 18. 2006 Dodge Viper Power: 510hp © How can any car collection be complete without this pulsating legend? 19. 2006 Ford GT Power: 550hp If you're wondering whether John Cena knows what he's talking about then this video is all you need to see. 20. 2007 Charger SRT-8 Super Bee Power: 425hp © MadnessUS Yotube Who cares about Bumblebee when you've got a bright yellow Charger. Clearly John Cena doesn't. 21. 2007 Ford Mustang Saleen Parnelli Jones Limited Edition Power: 400hp © forristalls Out of the 500 garages worldwide that house this gorgeous beast, one is Cena's. 22. 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Power: 638hp © Autowereldq Even though John hated Corvettes, he couldn't resist buying this ZR1. Needless to say, the Chevy managed to win him over. 23. 2013 Custom Corvette CR InCENArator Power: 491hp A Corvette CR that was customised to Cena's tastes, the InCENArator is fantastic machine. The highlight of the InCENArator is its set of eight flame spitting exhaust pipes on its rear-- absolutely incinerating!
  20. We understand that it's too early to talk about Christmas, since most of us are prepping up for Diwali and Halloween, but this is an important piece of information that we can't help share with you guys. First of all, if people ever called you crazy for believing in Santa Claus or said that Santa was actually some random grandpa with a fake white beard and red costume going ‘ho ho ho' over our fanciful wishes, you can now go and slap this article on their faces because Santa aka Saint Nicholas is for real. But as we rejoice over this revelation, we also came across some bad news that Santa is now dead, at least that's what these Turkish archeologists have found. © Wikimedia Apparenty, archeologists have unearthed a tomb, beneath the ancient St. Nicholas church in Demre, southern Turkey, which they believe is of original Santa Claus. According to Cemil Karabayram, head of Antalya's Monument Authority, it was unraveled during electronic surveys that found gaps beneath the church and the tomb has not been damaged at all. In a report published in The Telegraph, he was quoted as saying, “We have obtained very good results but the real work starts now. We will reach the ground and maybe we will find the untouched body of Saint Nicholas.” © Facebook In Demre that was earlier known as Myra, St. Nicholas was known for his generosity, especially towards kids. In fact, people believed that he would secretly givechildren gifts on his feast day and put coins in the shoes of those who left them out for him. Earlier, it was believed that his remains were smuggled to Italy by merchants around the 1080s. However, it is only now that Turkish experts claim that bones of a local priest were removed instead of St. Nicholas'. This means, people have been offering their prayers to the wrong guy at the Basilica di San Nicola. © Wikimedia/ For Representation So how did the generous St. Nicholas become the legendary sleigh-riding Santa Claus? Well, in Europe in the 16th century, he came to be known as Father Christmas. Later in the United States, after the arrival of Dutch settlers, he came to be apparently known as “Sinterklaas”. Many kids around the world will be disappointed to know that Santa is now dead. It is definitely a big revelation and although still in the nascent stage, it has already affected the whole world. But once the archeologists complete the whole excavation process and the remains turn out be Santa's, then he will once again bestow Demre with an anonymous gift i.e. booming tourism.

  21. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is no longer the finisher he once used to be for India. He lost his captaincy to Virat Kohli and on top of that, his age (36) has also restricted him to limited-overs cricket. And now, many believe that the former Indian skipper is possibly inching closer towards the end of his glorious career. But, despite all the shortcomings and limitations, Dhoni's exploits in recent games has proved he is not only fit, but also faster than before. That lightening quick stumping by Dhoni ...#IndvsSL — Vikaas (@vikaask) September 6, 2017 Whether it's running between the wickets or terrorizing opposition batsmen behind the stumps, Dhoni's level of fitness and his capabilities remain unscathed even as he grows old with time. And, the fact that the Jharkhand cricketer recently became the first-ever wicket-keeper in the history of ODI cricket to go past 100 stumpings is surely a testimony to that. And, if that wasn't enough, Dhoni's latest video with his pet dog 'Sam' shows he's equally up to the task, off the field. A video of Dhoni playing the mirror game with his dog was shot and later uploaded by his wife Sakshi on Instagram. #belgiummalinois #sam ‘s mirroring talent ! ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ @mahi7781 A post shared by Sakshi (@sakshisingh_r) on Oct 4, 2017 at 6:41am PDT The video shows the Indian cricketer's pet imitating his master. While Sam matched Dhoni on every move, he eventually failed to keep pace with MSD, who was just too quick for him. As India gears up to take on Australia in the three-match T20I series, Dhoni's fans will once again expect their 'Captain Cool' to make a mark in the shortest format of the beautiful game. And, while his teammates must be sweating it out in training, Dhoni has showcased one heck of a way to prepare for the upcoming series.
  22. There are transformations. And then there are transformations of a rich producer-kid who, to be honest, lost significance in our lives after playing a supporting actor to tall (and that's all)—Abhishek Bachchan. Case in point: Uday Chopra, son of OG Yash Chopra, brother of an invisible mega-producer, who just shocked us with his recent pictures of him. Now hold your breath and blood pressure for this image... © Viral Bhayani Absolute shocker? Check. Dad jeans? Check. Sweat patches? Check. Salt-and-pepper facial hair? Check. Basically, this is R. Madhavan's transformation gone completely wrong. But here's what we think: Chips are sacred. While watching soccer or casually drinking beers, we chips. Unfortunately, an overdose of it can result in weight gain. So, really, Mr. Chopra is just the result of a natural process. Fair. Or is this the sign of a mysterious comeback role in a multi-crore movie to-be-produced by Yash Raj? Only time will tell... © Viral Bhayani Plus, the man's 44. Even a good looker like David Beckham would have gotten grey hair at 40. Being the smart ass he is, he turned it around by dying them black. Uday, on the contrary, is concerned about the quality of his hair. He's a sensible guy, dude. Let's give it to him! © Viral Bhayani In conclusion, we're all praises for the lad. For being his smart-ass self (see Twitter). For not succumbing to the glamour industry's pressures and demands. And, for setting the benchmark for ‘I'll eat what I want and there's no one that can tell me otherwise…' © Viral Bhayani Nargis Fakhri, take him back now?
  23. When it comes to cricket, the northern Indian city of Meerut is well known for the industrial production of sports goods - most famously those under the brand SG (a household name for cricket enthusiasts in the country). But, apart from that, the city in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh has also produced seam-bowling sensations in Praveen Kumar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. While Praveen's stint with the Indian team has been brief, Bhuvneshwar's is the one that continues to fuel the ambitions of Men in Blue across all formats. The 27-year-old is capable of making the ball hoop around corners, mostly back into right-handed batsmen. But, his ability to ensure the ball hold its line often enough has proved to be a genuine threat, even to some of the best batsmen in the game. © BCCL For a 19-year-old who took domestic cricket by storm after dismissing Sachin Tendulkar for his first first-class duck, Bhuvneshwar has surely come a long way to claim 142 scalps in 111 international games across all formats for India. But, unlike the fiery and short-tempered bowlers in the modern-era, Bhuvneshwar is known for his calm and composed demeanour. He is rarely seen sledging, there has rarely been a verbal exchange involving him and his body language is always positive. No matter the situation, pressure or on-field altercation, Bhuvneshwar has always let his skills do the talking. And, that's probably the reason why he has been such a hit with the females and considered one of the most eligible bachelors in the Indian cricket team. Dinner date ð full pic soon ð A post shared by Bhuvneshwar Kumar (@imbhuvi) on May 10, 2017 at 10:32pm PDT But, the Indian cricketer surprised his fans when he posted a cropped photo of himself from a dinner date five months ago. With everyone left wondering who his dinner date was, Bhuvneshwar had promised to share the 'full picture' soon. Here's the better half of the picture @nupurnagar ðð A post shared by Bhuvneshwar Kumar (@imbhuvi) on Oct 3, 2017 at 5:13am PDT And, after teasing his fans for almost five months, Bhuvi has finally shared the complete photograph and also revealed the identity of the woman alongside him in the picture. Taking to Instagram, Bhuvi wrote: "Here's the better half of the picture @nupurnagar”. My little bit of Sunday glimpse...! #happyfriendshipday #sunday #selfie #smile A post shared by Anusmriti Sarkar (@anusmritisarkarofficial) on Aug 6, 2017 at 3:54am PDT The Indian bowling spearhead might have revealed the name of his better-half, but she still continues to remain a mystery for the fans. But, Bhuvneshwar's recent post has surely put an end to the rumours of his alleged link-up with model-turned-actress Anusmriti Sarkar who was initially believed to the Indian bowler's dinner date.
  24. We've said this earlier and we're saying it again, you can't wear a suit ordinarily anymore. Unless of course, you've got no style moves on hand. But hold that thought, we're not saying two pieces or three pieces are now yesteryear tales, all we're saying is: don't wear them like you're dressing for your last day on earth. Add quirky pocket squares, flaunt awkward (read: cool) cuff links or for god's sake...slip on some pop-hued socks instead. Farhan Akhtar or Far Out Akhtar as Instagram knows him, is miles away from the boring folk in this aspect. In addition to increasing his protein intake lately, he's recently been filling our lives with amazing suit moments. See his recent outing for yourself... © Viral Bhayani There's a lot to pat the actor's back for here. First pat: for the fit of the suit. There's some pro-level finesse that's gone into it, 'cause without that, this could have a little too tight for him. Including the shirt, which looks like it's absolutely glued to his chest, but without the chip-chip and the chick-chick—just a great fitted piece from a style maven's closet. © Viral Bhayani Pat two: the belt and pocket square. While the former brings the outfit to a terrific close (thank god, there's not a chunky, blaring buckle there), the red-lined pocket square is a great addition to this solid-coloured setup. Last and the most important pat: the red + striped socks. That are only peeping out when the actor's seats himself on the high top stool and well, happens to be a dope (and smart) choice for a formal event such as this. © Viral Bhayani Here's what we think: if you work in an environment that allows polo T-shirts on Fridays, your Mon-Thurs drill can definitely accommodate a pair of pop-coloured socks. But don't over do it. Socks with McDonald's fries and teddy bears are for playgrounds, don't wear them to work.
  25. Jagmeet Singh is a name to reckon with in Canadian politics today. The 38-year-old suave politician has become the first non-white person to become the leader of a major political party in Canada. He is also the first turban-wearing Sikh politician to become a provincial legislator in Ontario. © Instagram_Jagmeet singh Known for his uber stylish suits, his progressive stance and his successful stint at activism and politics, Jagmeet Singh is anything but a conventional politician. In 2013, the ‘Toronto Life' magazine featured him in the list of top 25 most stylish personalities in Toronto.

Talking to TOI he talked about how such experiences made him more sensitive towards such issues and said, "This sensitivity has shaped my politics by developing a strong desire to challenge injustice and work toward creating a more equitable society.” â°vibes ð¨ð¦ .

Not only that, Jagmeet Singh is a trained Brazilian jiu-jitsu champion and has competed in championships as well. His story is a lesson in rising against challenges and winning at life no matter how tough it gets. Even as a lawyer-turned-politician in Canada, he was accosted by a racist heckler recently at a campaign event. Singh won respect from all across the world with his dignified response to the heckler. As one of the few politicians from ethnic minorities in Canada, Singh has managed to make his voice relevant.

Of course, it probably is also the reason he looks as fit as a 20-year-old. I ð´ð¾ Halifax .

"I am officially launching my campaign to be the next prime minster of Canada,” he announced after his election. Je suis tellement fier de représenter l'Ontario à la conférence de l'APF cette année à l'Assemblée Fédérale de la Suisse. This annual conference brings together french speaking elected officials from around the world to discuss matters ranging from women's rights to economic development. #reppingontario #sometimesyougottaholditdownonyourown #reallylonghashtags A post shared by Jagmeet Singh (@jagmeetsingh) on Jul 9, 2015 at 5:52pm PDT Political experts are taking the development with a pinch of salt though. Jagmeet Singh is known to have raised his voice for the victims of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, which he termed as a ‘state-sponsored massacre'. Subsequently, he was denied a visa to India. Nevertheless, Jagmeet Singh's election is a great step towards ethnic assimilation in the West. People from Thikriwal village, Punjab, from where Singh's parents hail, celebrated the historic event with a thanksgiving ardaas. Canada's next prime minister could be a debonair turban-wearing Sikh. Enough said. H/t – TOI
