  1. Photo: AFP It was one of hundreds of cute questionnaires that were shared widely on Facebook and other social media, like "Which Pokeman Are You?" and "What Are Your Most Used Words?" This one, an app called "thisismydigitallife", was a personality quiz, asking questions about how outgoing a person is, how vengeful one can be, whether one finishes projects, worries a lot, likes art, or is talkative. About 320,000 people took the quiz, designed by a man named Alexsandr Kogan. Kogan was contracted to do it by a company called Cambridge Analytica, founded by US Republican supporters including Steve Bannon, who would become the strategist for Donald Trump. Because Kogan´s app was circulated via Facebook, it reaped far more than just the information on those who took the test. At the time, in 2015, such apps could scrape up all the personal details of not only the quiz-taker, but all their Facebook friends. That ultimately became a horde of data on some 50 million Facebook users -- their personal information, their likes, their places, their pictures, and their networks. Marketers use such information to pitch cars, clothes, and vacations with targeted ads. It was used in earlier elections by candidates to identify potential supporters. But for Kogan and Cambridge it was a much bigger goldmine. They used it for psychological profiling of US voters, creating a powerful database that helped carry Trump to victory in the 2016 presidential election. The data let the Trump campaign know more than perhaps anyone has ever known about Facebook users, creating targeted ads and messaging that could play on their individual biases, fears and loves -- effectively creating a bond between them and the candidate. Psychometric profiling The project was based on the work of a former Cambridge scientist, Michal Kosinski, who studies people based on what information they generate on line. Kosinski and fellow researcher David Stillwell had for several years tapped into Facebook for psychometric profiling using their own personality test app, "myPersonality". The app accumulated six million test results, along with users´ Facebook profiles, and their friends´ profiles, in a powerful research database. In 2015 they published a study carrying the bold title: "Computer-based personality Judgments are more accurate than those made by humans." They showed, for example, that they could divine a fairly accurate psychometric portrait of a person using only their Facebook "likes". "Computers outpacing humans in personality Judgment presents significant opportunities and challenges in the areas of psychological assessment, marketing, and privacy," they wrote. Kosinski would not share the database with Kogan and Cambridge Analytica, reportedly knowing it would be used for a political campaign. But Kogan created his own app quiz and, through that, amassed the database on 50 million people that would be the backbone of Trump´s social media campaign. Facebook now says Kogan did that illegally. And it has since also restricted apps from such broad data collection on friend networks. Powerful results But Cambridge Analytica proved that Kosinski´s methods were powerful. They started with the standard psychological profiling test known as Big Five or OCEAN, which measures five traits: openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness and neuroticism. The test-taker answers a list of statements like "I am someone who tends to be organized" or "who rarely feels excited" or "has few artistic interests," using a scale from "strongly agree" to "strongly disagree". Those basic results were combined with the data raked from Facebook profiles and friend networks, associating longer lists of traits. For example, to categorize voters, an algorithm could find links between "agreeableness" or "neuroticism" and gender, age, religion, hobbies, travel, specific political views, and a host of other variables. The data generated an incredible 4,000 or more data points on each US voter, according to Alexander Nix, Cambridge Analytica´s chief executive before he was suspended on Tuesday. The power of psychographic data, experts say, is not in the granularity itself, but in combining data to make significant correlations about people -- something with requires powerful computer algorithms. Ultimately, it allowed the campaign to know far more about voters than anyone ever has before. The output was put to work in what Nix called "behavioral microtargeting" and "psychographic messaging". More simply said, the campaign could put out messages, news and images via Facebook and other social media that was finely targeted to press the right buttons on an individual that would push them into Trump´s voter base. For Trump, it worked. "If you know the personality of the people you´re targeting, you can nuance your messaging to resonate more effectively with those key audience groups," Nix said in a 2016 presentation.
  2. Just before you could think that a plot line from 'Black Mirror' could never become reality, think again. China is now going to impose strict penalties on its citizens with low “scores”. China introduced a “social credit” system just like in one of the episodes in 'Black Mirror' and we cannot imagine what the consequence is going to be. © Reuters From May 1, Chinese citizens with low scores will not be able to travel via train or plane for up to a year. This was made official by the country's National Development and Reform Commission. Now that this has been made official, would we see Chinese citizens obsess with their “social score” in order to be eligible for travelling? Well, we can assume that this outcome is highly likely. © Reuters China's social credit system is planning to score its citizens based on financial and social behaviour just like in 'Black Mirror'. We can already see this taking effect in the United States in the form of a credit score and we won't be surprised to see this hit other countries too. How it Works © Twitter According to Reuters, the social score in China is determined by two basic factors i.e. criminal acts and financial misdeeds. If a citizen is found conducting criminal activity such as spreading false information, using expired travel tickets, failing to pay social insurance, smoking on trains and faulting payments can result in a bad score. An individual's score is measured between 350 and 950 points. How Its Effecting Citizens A Chinese lawyer, Li Xiaolin, was banned from buying a plane ticket as the system rejected the purpose once his national identity card was scanned. He was found to be “untrustworthy” as he failed to carry out a court order. The lawyer's social score was found to be low as he defended a man who was accused of rape a year prior. The scoring system has also been used to ridicule journalists, political activists and ordinary citizens for minor offences that would be deemed legal in other countries. In a separate case, journalist Li Hu, was found blacklisted for accusing a Government official of corruption. The system is expected to evolve by 2020 and will capable of relaying real-time data of citizens to government officials, law enforcement and other organisations. For now, citizens can “voluntarily” participate in the scoring program and will become mandatory by 2020. Source: TheNextWeb
  3. Playing video games could become more accessible than ever and that too on various devices as Microsoft is working on something very similar to Netflix. Currently, there are over 2 billion gamers in the world and Microsoft has a plan for getting them to use its service. © Pexels In an interview with The Verge, a company representative said that Microsoft Xbox is working on a service that would let gamers play games the same way they watch content on Netflix. The service will let players access games from various developers and stream those titles to any device. “We're looking at ways to make that content available to anyone no matter what device they're on,” Microsoft gaming cloud division chief Kareem Choudhry said in the interview. He told the tech news site that there will eventually be “2 billion gamers in the world” and Microsoft's goal “is to reach every one of them.” Of course, its easier said than done as video game consoles are mostly tied to exclusive titles forcing players to chose a console for the game library. Exclusive titles are available on specific hardware and it would be hard to get every game on Microsoft's service due to these obstacles. © Pexels Having said that, Microsoft's new service has opened up new opportunities for third-party developers. Games could be stored games in the cloud and can be streamed directly to mobile devices, consoles and PCs. Microsoft is currently investing heavily in their Azure cloud service and believes it can deliver the platform on which games are delivered. © Pexels Even though companies like Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo don't necessarily see eye to eye, the streaming service could still be successful without any collaboration from Nintendo and Sony. Majority of games that are launched in a year are developed by third-party companies and could result in a well-rounded line-up of titles. It wasn't made clear when the service is set to launch. However, Choudhry did say that Microsoft is “spending a lot of time thinking about that space.” Source: The Verge
  4. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan. Photo: File KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairperson Imran Khan has criticised Pakistan Peoples Party chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, alleging the latter does not know how a hardworking person in the country earn bread and butter. Speaking to the media after his arrival in Karachi, Imran said Bilawal has made tall claims in multiple statements recently but is unaware of the actual issues faced by the people. About the issues pertaining to the citizens, Imran mentioned those pertaining to water saying that water supplied for irrigation had sewage mixed in it. The PTI chairperson also said that the chief justice of Pakistan would not have had to give a week?s time for Karachi to be cleaned had there any work been done in the city by PPP, the party which has been in power in Sindh for long. ?In the 10 years of their government, what work have you [the PPP government] done for Karachi and interior Sindh,? asked Imran. CJP gives one week deadline to clean up Karachi Don't want to see trash on streets of Karachi anymore, remarks CJP Mian Saqib Nisar The PTI chief was referring to Saturday's statement by Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar, who expressed anger over the heaps of garbage dotting Karachi. During a hearing of the Supreme Court?s Karachi registry, the CJP said Karachi?s cleanliness situation has deteriorated with time. ?I don?t know how but clean the city. I don't want to see trash on streets of Karachi anymore,? he observed. Heaps of garbage have clogged drains while trash piles are seen everywhere, he remarked, questioning whose job it was to clean the city. He reasoned that it is the job of Karachi Mayor Waseem Akhtar.
  5. Photo: Online Deputy Medical Superintendent of Abbasi Shaheed Hospital in Karachi has raised a serious issue ?affecting the growth of children?. Dr Noman Nasir has started a campaign highlighting the hazards of lifting heavy schoolbags ? an important issue which is seldom raised. In a bid to ?educate schools to reduce the weight of baggage carried by students,? Dr Nisar told Geo News he has written letters to the Sindh secretary education and principals of all schools in Karachi. ?Being a doctor I want to point out a very sensitive and important issue regarding lifting of overweight (school bags) by majority of government and private schools,? he said in the letter. A copy of the letter The deputy medical superintendent of Abbasi Shaheed Hospital noted the health issues caused by heavy schoolbags. ?I observed in my routine practice that most of the children came to me complaining of stiff neck, shoulder pain and backache which may lead to server lumbago,? he said. ?Thirty to 35% of growing children between the ages of five to 13 are suffering from severe backaches due to heavy lifting,? he told Geo News. Directly affecting their bone growth Dr Nisar requesting that measures be taken to decrease baggage weight of students. ?I request you to take serious concern on this issue and take all possible measures and manage a system so that children have to carry only specific books needed as per daily time table,? he added. The deputy medical superintendent suggested that weight of school bags can be reduced by assigning less homework, arranging lockers and ensuring that children leave behind heavy books in the school. He also hoped measures will be taken on a government level.

  8. Shah Rukh Khan is an actor who is loved by millions across the globe. This man is the sheer example of making it big on his own without any strings in the industry. Being an outsider, he struggled a lot in his early days and despite not belonging to an influential Bollywood family, he made his way to the top of the ladder, becoming a household name. Lovingly known as 'King Khan' or 'Badshah' of Bollywood, Shah Rukh's success story is emotional, inspiring and at the same time heartbreaking. It takes a lot of hard work and courage to rise in tinsel town, which is known for proudly supporting nepotism. © Twitter While today, the actor rules millions of hearts, early in his life, Shah Rukh Khan faced one of the biggest roadblocks of his life. The demise of his parents left him shattered but it never stopped him from believing in his dreams. In a candid chat with Rani Mukherji during the promotion of her upcoming film 'Hichki', SRK revealed how losing his parents had crushed him. He spoke in detail about how he converted his grief into his passion for acting, which only helped him soar in the industry. © YouTube “My greatest Hichki moment is the death of my parents. I was 15 when my father passed away and 26 when my mother passed away. We were not financially stable and I was pursuing my Masters. It was sad all of a sudden, we could feel that void. The loneliness, loss of both my parents, this pain could have made thing difficult for us. I decided to overcome that Hichki by letting acting take it away,” Khan said. “The pain never really went away but it used to focus a lot on my work. For me acting is that little vent. People close to me will tell you that acting is my vent, my place to manifesting these emotions. I always say this to my family that one morning, when I wake up, I will realise that I have spent all these emotions and now have nothing more to give as an actor. So, death is a hiccup from where you can't come back. I knew it and hence gave it all in my work. God might give you hiccups but he always gives you a way out of it as well. I found my friends and family in this industry again.” Check out the video now: SRK is one of those actors whose journey to fame is not just inspiring but emotional as well. It's a story that can inspire you and help you to make a name for yourself in this big world.
  9. Lurking in the shadows of their more consistent and effective neighbours City, Manchester United did manage to prove their mettle and repaid the faith of their fans when they defeated Liverpool over the weekend. But, their happiness was sadly shortlived. If Marouane Fellaini's abhorrent 'Mickey Mouse' hairdo made them a victim of social media trolls, Man Utd further attracted immense criticism after their elimination from the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Sevilla - a team placed fifth in La Liga with a goal difference of minus six and the one that could only manage two wins in their six Champions League group games. Following a goalless draw in the first-leg in Seville, United found themselves staring down the barrel because of the away goal rule. The Red Devils knew that if Sevilla scored they would need two, something the EPL giants had not managed against the Spanish opposition since 2003 (home or away) in the European competition. Despite beginning the game with a good tempo, the inability of the home side to slow the contest down and retain possession was telling. As Sevilla settled pretty quickly in the first-half, United looked a bit lackadaisical passing out from the back. Such was Sevilla's pressing, that United was forced to look long each time they got the ball. Reuters The absence of injured Paul Pogba was evident as neither Nemanja Matic, nor Fellaini came close to controlling the contest. And, the fact that Mourinho's men could force just one save from the opposition goalkeeper pretty much summed up their sorry state of affairs in the first 45 minutes. At the half-time, fans must have been hoping for a Fergie-esque 'hair-dryer treatment' for United stars from Mourinho, whose piece of mind had inspired them to overcome Crystal Palace in the Premier League recently. While we don't know what the United manager told his players in the dressing room, but it clearly didn't change their performance in the second-half. A sloppy first-half was followed by more frustration for the hosts as Sevilla kept knocking on their door. Minutes into the second-half, Joaquin Correa came close to putting his side in front when he found some space in front of David De Gea. But, as he went on to shoot, Eric Bailly swooped and made a crucial tackle to clear the danger. Marcus Rashford, whose brace over the weekend shut Liverpool, was next to cede the ball cheaply and, just like that, United - who were marching forward in a bid to score - found themselves backtracking to avoid a potential threat from Sevilla's Luis Muriel who eventually rolled the ball wide of the left post. Reuters United's problem was as obvious as their inability to solve it: a lack of composure despite Mourinho having the interval to put this right. And, soon, the contest was bypassing United's midfield in the hope that Romelu Lukaku or Fellaini could make something happen from a hail Mary dropping on them from their box. After seeing enough of mediocracy, Mourinho sent on Pogba and withdrew Fellaini on the hour. But, while United did manage to improve on the possession, it was Sevilla who reaped the benefits at the other end. Raring to beat De Gea, the visitors finally found the back of the net in the 74th minute through their 'Super Sub' Wissam Ben Yedder who scored in just 87 seconds - fastest goal by a substitute in Champions League this season. With two goals becoming the need of the hour for United, Ben Yedder struck again in the 77th minute to put the hosts out of their misery. Feeding on Correa's cross, the 27-year-old, despite a weak header, once again got his name on the scoresheet in a span of just three minutes. Thanks to his second strike, Ben Yedder is now the second-highest goal-scorer behind Cristiano Ronaldo in the Champions League this season. Five of his eight UCL goals have come against English clubs this season. In fact, he was Sevilla's savior in the autumn, scoring three against Liverpool across their two drawn group ties. Reuters For United, opportunities kept coming but the hosts just couldn't grab them. Chris Smalling was presented with the perfect chance to cut the deficit in the 80th minute, when all he needed was just some contact to beat Sergio Rico on Rashford's free-kick. But, it seems that Smalling was probably distracted by Ashley Young's Instagram post trolling Mohamed Salah. The goal finally came for the home side through Lukaku in the 84th minute, but the fact that there wasn't even a roar from the emptying Old Trafford reflects how bad Mourinho's men had been that night. There was no fluency, no pace and, definitely, no ambition from the Red Devils. It's safe to say that the hosts were second-best in all the departments of the game. Theirs was a wretched performance, a calamity for United, and one of the worst nights in their long European history. After progressing from the Round of 16 in five successive seasons, United have now been eliminated at this stage in two of their last three Champions League campaigns. And, the fact that Sevilla attempted 21 shots in the game - the most by any team at Old Trafford since March 2013 - sums up their forgetful night. Reuters And, if their performance wasn't enough to rile up the fans, Mourinho's comments after the game highlighted that maybe it was time for the Red Devils to find a new manager, because the Portuguese were definitely not the 'Special One' that night. "It is not something new for the club. I don't think the performance was bad, I think the intention and the way we started was really good and positive," he said. Clearly, Mourinho was talking about some other team or probably another match because United fans and the hallowed Old Trafford doesn't deserve a performance like that. And, for a club of United's might that allowed Mourinho to spend 300 million pounds in his two seasons, failing to reach the Champions League last eight is just unacceptable. Mourinho's failure to guide his team into the quarter-finals is further compounded by how the maligned David Moyes did take United through to the last eight four years ago. And, this dismal defeat that had Old Trafford emptying before the final whistle means United can realistically now claim only the FA Cup - a consolation that might help Mourinho save his job, but cannot justify the team's growing incompetence.
  10. Right from our childhood, we are told that English is a prerequisite for anyone and everyone who wants to succeed or basically achieve anything in life. And those who don't know the language are unfortunately ridiculed. The fact that English is one of the most spoken languages in the world just goes on to establish the dominance it has. via GIPHY But you know us Indians; we have the ability to transform everything as per our tastes and term it as a 'jugaad'. And there's no debate over the fact that the 'Hinglish' language is one of our most successful jugaads. In fact, it is so successful that it now taking over the world starting with a college in UK. © Twitter Portsmouth College is offering its students a course in the hybrid language of 'Hinglish'. The course was first introduced in 2017 as a part of a pilot project. But thanks to the crazy response that the students gave, they are going to offer a longer duration course starting from September this year. © Nacue The curriculum will be designed keeping in mind the growing importance of the language not just in India but across the world in terms of economy, business operations, literature and even films. © Red Chillies Entertainment According to The Tribune, 18 students attended the Hinglish sessions on a regular basis earlier and they will now be helping the faculty to develop the course further. It will then become a regular feature from the 2018-19 academic year as part of the Modern Business Language & Culture programme. You can catch a glimpse of the Hinglish class here: Honestly, it makes us laugh and feel proud at the same time. After years of us trying to adapt to everything that's western, seeing our native language taking over the world in this way is definitely something we didn't expect. But people's massive interest in learning about India, its culture through a language is definitely heart warming.

If Priya Prakash Varrier's video taught us anything, it is that some people can literally get a million followers with just a wink; while the rest of us have to spend most of our time sending requests to our friends in hopes that they will follow us back. © YouTube Well, having said that, I think we all know the basic universal rule of social media - the more followers you have, the more viral your posts go and naturally, more virality brings more fame. Everyone loves followers on social media. While we crib about the number of 'I can literally count on my fingers' followers, nothing pinches more than knowing that more than half of those followers are fake. Our PM Narendra Modi and the world got to know of this bitter truth in the most hilariously painful way, after a Twitter audit revealed that 60% of his Twitter followers are fake. © wikimedia So trusting my calculation skills, out of Modi's 41 million followers if 60% are fake, it means approximately only 26 million followers are real. When the data was released on February 21, Modi had 40.3 million followers according the statistics. In less than a month he earned 7 million more followers. Honestly, this massive jump is way more promising than those hair-gain or weight-loss in 30 days messages. © wikimedia Last year, Modi was rewarded with the title of being the world's most followed leader across all social media platforms. Who knew that the pool of victory he was swimming in all this while will be shrunk by half, all thanks to the fake followers. Look at the bright side, just like any other list, Modi managed to top this one too. Although we don't think he will be any happier to know this. World Leaders and their Fake followers Some of the most followed world leaders and their share of bot followers as determined by https://t.co/TdNIomSdNt. Graphics prepared by @Saosasha @gzeromedia#DigitalDiplomacy pic.twitter.com/viid9ZTReV — Twiplomacy ð (@Twiplomacy) February 21, 2018 According to a report published in Outlook, these followers include internet bots and inactive followers. Internet bots are kind of “an automated application that helps to imitate workings of accounts of actual humans.” But Modi is not alone. The list includes some of the world's biggest names like Donald Trump (37%), Pope Francis (59%), Pena Nieto (47%), King Salman (8%), Taylor Swift (19%) and Kim Kardashian (44%). At 37% fake followers, this list comes as an assurance that a lot of people are now saved from Trump's covfefe tweet and his childish argument with North Korea. After this revelation, we have realized one thing. Memes are not the only savage thing Twitter can think of to mess with someone. It has a lot of evil cards up its sleeves. This data was determined by Twitter Audit's algorithm, which factors in number of tweets, date of the last tweet, and ratios of followers to friends.
  12. 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.
  13. Ok folks, we'll admit it. We have now gotten tired of endlessly crushing on Virat and Anushka. And we had this happy realization after some of our lovely readers mentioned the same in our comment section about how we are obsessing over 'Virushka'. Well, we can't help it if their Instagram feed is more interesting and kickass than yours and everyone else's combined. But, now it's time to look past 'Virushka' and focus on two of the greatest and most successful Bollywood actors of this time – Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. The couple is like yin and yang of Bollywood. While, one is known for being elegant, the other is literally a bomb always on the verge of explosion. BCCL The couple has had their fair share of ups and downs in the relationship. And despite innumerable denials, breakup rumours, wedding rumours and what not, the couple seems to be having the time of their lives after they won the award for being the biggest 'Entertainer of the Year'. BCCL At the Hello Hall of Fame Awards held in Mumbai, Deepika received the award by her idol, Rekha; while Ranveer was given the award by Yohan and Michelle Poonawalla. But, that's definitely not the best take-away from the award show.

India (@hellomagindia) on Mar 11, 2018 at 10:59am PDT The best thing that happened was after the event, when the couple posed for pictures together for the magazine. And Ranveer being Ranveer, the goofball and cheesy romantic he is, got down on his knees for pictures and went on to set new standards for couple photo-shoots. So let's settle for what looks close to how their pre-wedding photoshoot will be like. We're backstage at the #HHOF18 with your favourite stars and some of the nation's finest super achievers… Stay tuned for LIVE & EXCLUSIVE updates! #HHOF18 #HELLOHallOfFame #StayTuned #LiveAndExclusive @deepikapadukone @ranveersingh A post shared by HELLO! India (@hellomagindia) on Mar 11, 2018 at 10:56am PDT With 'Padmaavat' still going strong at the box-office, and Deepika and Ranveer getting a lot of praises and good reviews, hidden in the pile of death threats; this year surely has Deepika and Ranveer written over it. And with wedding rumours doing the rounds, it's getting difficult to contain all this excitement inside.
  14. Back in 2012, Unmukt Chand was labelled as one of the most promising young talents in Indian cricket circuit. Why, you'd ask? Well, he led India's Under-19 team to the ICC World Cup triumph that year, upsetting hosts Australia with a calm and unbeaten 111 in a tense run-chase. His temperament stood out throughout the tournament as he guided India in unfamiliar conditions—it was his third consecutive century in a final for the Under-19 side. And, soon, the cricket pundits and fans were found comparing Chand with his good friend Virat Kohli who had also shot to prominence with U-19 World Cup glory in 2008. But, the glory days are far gone and, today, Chand has almost faded away into the assembly line of aspirants working hard to earn that elusive Team India cap. From being tipped as the next Kohli, the 24-year-old - over half a decade later - has almost lived an entire lifetime comprised of major downfalls. © BCCL He was axed from the Delhi side last season and failed to find any suitors for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season. So, how does a player like Chand - who was expected to fly - is now struggling even to jog as far as his cricketing career is concerned? The reason has been explained by none other than Chand himself. Disheartened after getting dropped from the Delhi team, Chand revealed: "Getting dropped from Delhi was the biggest disappointment of my life. I became the scapegoat of petty politics in the team. I was playing a T20 zonal match in Mumbai two years back, when I heard the news of getting axed from the One-day side. I was leading India A in a couple of months before that, and was the highest scorer there. I had been the top run-getter for Delhi the previous season, and I was dropped. That was shocking." While domestic cricket is often considered to be a great platform for budding cricketers to prove their mettle and break into the national team, Chand's unfortunate axing from Delhi team didn't just hampered his growth, but also quashed his hopes of playing in the IPL - another tournament aimed at finding new and exciting talents in the country. © BCCL “I was retained by MI last year but because I didn't get to play matches in the previous year, I decided to get released from the squad to find a team where I could play, and not sit out, even at base price. Playing is more important than money. It was a hard decision and a big risk too, but I opted out. Unfortunately, I was dropped from the Delhi side four days before the auction, and I'm sure it didn't send the right signal to the franchisees. I wasn't picked,” he told TOI. With his spot in the Delhi set-up uncertain, Chand's desperation to have some game-time even forced him to toy with the idea of playing for another state. "Yes, I have thought about it. I have been forced to think about it. However, things are still not concrete,” he revealed. © BCCL Despite all the things he went through, Chand remained positive and even claims that his exclusion from the Delhi team liberated him in a way. “I had lived my biggest fear of getting dropped from the Delhi Ranji team, and thus overcame the fear by only realizing the next day that it was a mental barrier and nothing else. I went beyond the fear. It liberated me,” he disclosed. Always on the grind. Love pushing myself everyday. One thing sports teaches you is discipline. Nothing better than exploring my own capabilities and getting past them with continuous effort. Proves that we all have immense strength to become a better version of ourselves, provided we are ready to learn and unlearn... and it goes on and on forever. ðªð #ThusdayThoughts #IntenseWorkout #WorkoutMotivation A post shared by Unmukt Chand (@unmuktchand_official) on Aug 17, 2017 at 12:45am PDT The young gun, irrespective of the limited opportunities, continues to work hard and keep his tryst with cricketing destiny which was visible in his gritty hundred for Delhi in the Vijay Hazare Trophy last month. If his batting artistry didn't win over critics, the fact that he smashed his ton while playing with a broken jaw goes on to show his character and passion for the game. For now, this less flamboyant, yet precious talent has proved that he may be out of sight, but definitely not out of mind.
  15. Just like the movie 'Hidden Figures' where women proved their mettle with hidden numbers, it seems like Rekha Jhunjhunwala, the co-owner of Rare Enterprises, too has a special eye when it comes to numbers. Her investment portfolio itself tells her whole story. Rekha Jhunjhunwala, the other half of Rakesh Jhunwala, a well known Indian investor and trader, investments just saw a proliferating rise and has earned more than 900 cr in just one year. © TOI According to a report shared by Zee Business, Rekha's investment portfolio has seen a massive growth of 47 percent in a single year. As of March 8, 2017, they were valued at Rs. 1,909 crores and exactly a year later, in March 2018, it states that the value of her portfolio stood at Rs. 2,814 crores. That's a rise of 900 crore which is a pretty big deal. By now you must be interested to get into the number detail of her portfolio and find out where all she invested her money, so here is a little breakdown of her recent investment portfolio. Her 3.17 percent stake in Delta Corp and her 1.53 percent stake in Titan, both separately saw a surge of as much as 80 percent in a year. If you have been following Rakesh Jhunjhunwala's investment strategy, who is also compared to Warren Buffett In India, then you will remember that Titan is the same stock that had helped Mr. Jhunjhunwala add Rs.875 crore to his fortune in a single day. Other major stocks that helped Rekha Jhunjhunwala add 900 cr to her fortune are as follows: © Thinkstock Rekha holds a stake in Aptech (11.47 %), Autoline Industries (3.48 %), D B Realty (2.05 %), and McNally Bharat (4.03 %) all of which saw a rise between 10 to 30 percent. Her other investments include NCC (8.11 percent) and TV18 Broadcast (1.38 percent) both of which surged by almost 50 percent. So, now you have the numbers as well as the stocks that are seeing a remarkable rise, are you now ready to bet big?
  16. Subedar Joginder Singh is a name that everyone associates with the heroic tales of the Sikh Regiment during the Indo-China war of 1962. A man who braved all odds and conquered fear itself. The biopic on the Param Vir Chakra recipient is all set to hit theatres and the trailer seems to have justified his glorious role in cementing the role of the Sikh Regiment. ITS HERE! Subedar Joginder Singh Film Da Trailer ahgeya ji! I'm truly speechless and thankful to be a part of this film ð... Share & Support Karo! #SubedarJoginderSingh #ParamVirChakra #NationalHero #TrueStory #SagaMusic #SevenColors #6Aprilhttps://t.co/dVCIEEwuHK — Gippy Grewal (@igippygrewal) March 9, 2018 The titular role is played by Gippy Grewal, who is a well known name in the Punjabi industry. He looks very convincing and has played the role with sheer dedication. Subedar Joginder Singh fought till the very end until he was captured and later succumbed at the Chinese camp. However, the story of how he alone managed to lead the Sikh Regiment and fight like a warrior continues to inspire everyone who ever read about him. Indian cinema is evolving and exploring with genres which is a great thing today. While entertainment is indeed the main purpose of making a movie, we need more movies like these which highlight important incidents and figures like Joginder Singh. This is a story that needs to be heard and watched , and people are already appreciating the effort. Soora sau pehchaniye jo lade deen ke hait, Purja purja kat mare, kabhun na chhade khait.

  17. Sources close to Meghan Markle (pictured as Rachel Zane in Suits) claim that the bride-to-be's beauty and fashion costs are £400,000 with the bulk of it going on her wedding dress. Wide speculations have been made about Meghan Markle's dress for her wedding with Prince Harry ever since the couple announced their engagement. Many rumours about who will design Meghan's wedding dress are abuzz. From popular Israeli designer Inbal Dror, who had reportedly submitted sketches of the wedding gown, to Meghan's designer friend Roland Mouret, a lot of names have come up. And while the designer's name is yet to be officially announced, for now, the cost of the dress is being reported at a whopping 400,000 pounds. Yes, Meghan's living up to her royal status. ''The wedding dress has been the biggest expense, and the budget has now doubled from what it originally was,'' a source close to Meghan told Look magazine. Apart from the wedding dress, the budget for the honeymoon has also been settled at 120,000 pounds. ''That is her [Meghan's] gift to Harry,'' the source added. While the cost of the dress suits the stature of a prince's wife, we hope Meghan's dress lives up to its billing.
  18. On the back of his pace, accuracy and primarily his skill in moving the ball - both old and new; Mohammed Shami has undoubtedly established himself as India's bowling spearhead across all formats of the game. Capable of providing crucial breakthroughs, Shami has all the necessary ingredients of an ideal fast bowler. Off the field, Shami enjoys a huge fanbase for his contribution to Indian cricket, while his calm and composed demeanor has earned him respect across the globe. There have been numerous occasions in the past when Shami and his family were targeted by Islamic traditionalists, but the Indian pacer's befitting replies have always struck a chord with the fans. © Instagram/@mdshami.11 But, all the love and respect for the Indian pacer is now on the line. To the utter disbelief of his fans, Shami has now been accused of torturing and even cheating by none other than his wife Hasin Jahan, who shared screenshots of her husband's alleged WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger conversations with multiple women on social media. She has alleged that Shami physically assaulted her after returning from the South Africa tour last month. "Shami abused me and started beating me even after returning from South Africa. He has been doing this for quite some time now and now I have had enough," she was quoted as saying by NDTV. © Instagram/@mdshami.11 “I am facing domestic violence since last two years. He has also married a Pakistani girl and went to see her while returning from the South Africa tour," Hasin Jahan told India TV. “I asked Shami to take me to Dharamsala along with him but he refused. He even called me from there and abused me. He is having multiple affairs. Wherever the Indian team travels, a guy named Kuldeep supplies girls to him. BCCI is also not doing anything on this,” Jahan was later quoted as saying in the India TV report. © Instagram/@mdshami.11 "I gave him enough time (to rectify mistakes) and tried to calm myself down but instead of accepting his own mistakes, he used to vent his anger on me and even threatened me, asking me to keep mum for my own goodwill," she added. "I tried to convince myself for the sake of my family and daughter but he kept on harassing me and when I found those obscene chats with multiple women, all hell broke. I cannot tolerate this anymore and I have decided to take legal actions with all the available evidence," Jahan told ABP News. © Instagram/@mdshami.11 Her lawyer Zakir Hussain claims that she was still hoping that the Indian cricketer would change before taking any legal action. She is giving it some time. So we will wait a bit before taking any legal action," Hussain told IANS over the phone. Amid the explosive revelations by his wife, Shami has denied all the allegations and labeled it as a conspiracy and an attempt to damage his reputation. Taking to Facebook, the Indian speedster said: "Ye jitna bhi news hamara personal life ke bare may chal raha hai, ye sab sarasar jhut hai, ye koi bahut bada humare khilap sajish hai or ye mujhe Badnam karne or mera game kharab karne ka kosis ki ja rahi hai". © Instagram/@mdshami.11 Surprisingly, Shami had rallied behind his wife to take on the bigots who came out all guns blazing against Jahan for her choice of clothing in a picture shared on Facebook. Jahan had attracted a lot of criticism from the Islamic zealots after wearing a sleeveless outfit. But, Shami came out in her defence and silenced the hatemongers with a befitting reply. However, the latest revelations have undoubtedly sent a shockwave across the Indian cricket fraternity and have left the fans wondering if the 27-year-old is fit to be a role model for the country's youth. The shocking claims are not only capable of ending Shami's glorious international career, but it will also make cricket fans think twice before supporting a cricketer.
  19. Photo: File Pakistan?s biggest female star Mahira Khan has been using her prominence in the film industry to champion female empowerment. The actor, who has been leading headline-grabbing Pakistani films and making history as L?Oréal?s first Pakistani ambassador, has said that time?s up and people today are standing up for what they feel is right. Her latest film, Verna, which was briefly banned in Pakistan and will take center stage at the 2018 UK Asian Film Festival in March was based on a woman who stands up for her rights and doesn?t give up despite the challenges and the law failing her. In a recent interview with Newsweek ahead of her UK visit, Mahira explained how the Time?s Up movement has been trickling into Pakistan and the power of the people to make a change. ?We knew there are certain things that have been said in this film that won?t go down well with certain people, certain institutions. And they didn?t. There was a feeling of, OK, it?s been banned?now what do we do? There was a handful of people who did not want it to go out, and then there was the entire brigade of people?a society?who created an uproar and said they want this film to be released,? she said while talking about the brief ban on Verna. The actor added, ?That pressure caused them to release the film. I don?t know what the outcome of Verna would have been 20 years ago, or 25 years ago, or 10 years ago even. But today people are like, ?We?re not going to let you ban this film.? I actually thought, OK, this is banned, or there will be several cuts. There were no cuts in the film. It only happened because people got up and talked about it?journalists, Twitter, talk shows debating it. There was enough pressure and it got released.? ?More than anything, Verna talks about power,? she added. ?Whether we talk about misogyny or patriarchal society or even abuse, they?re an act of power,? the Raees actor explained. Responding to a question on what made her take up Verna, Mahira said, ?When I heard the story, all I knew was there are lines in the film that I wanted to be able to say. There were a lot of other great commercial projects that were around at the same time, but as an actor, it was a hunger to be able to be part of something like this.? Speaking about whether the "Time?s Up" campaign is crossing into the Pakistani film industry, the Bol actor said, ?Absolutely. It all trickles down and it has trickled down.? ?There are certain themes running through the world that are very similar. Whatever is happening there is happening here. People are raising their voice there; women are raising their voices here. There?s a very similar pattern in this country as well. We are having constant debate about gender equality, we are talking about women, women in films, the kind of roles written for women. It has trickled down,? she upheld. ?I would like better stories, and I want to see better roles for men and women. As far as tackling things like pay parity, in this industry, that is also being talked about. I think most of us?me and my female co-actors?I think we all fight for our rights. I think we?re creating a good groundwork for future generations,? Mahira added. Shifting focus to the recent death of Bollywood?s first female star, Sridevi, Mahira said, ?It?s very strange. I did a film [recently] which has comedy. For that, I started studying old Sridevi films. Even though we?ve all been fans of her forever, as an actor, this was the first time I was blown away by certain things that she did that nobody else could do. I?m actually very grateful that I discovered that. It?s sad, but what a life she lived. I?m just grateful that we lived in the times of Sridevi.? Further, regarding India recently upholding its ban on Pakistani talent in Indian films, the actor said, ?I wish it was within our hands or our control. But it isn?t. It?s something governments are deciding, and so be it.?
  20. One question that comes to everyone's mind whenever they see Ranveer Singh is 'How does he do it?'. He might be doing something absolutely innocuous, like going to the gym, but not without managing to provoke the style brigade even during that. He looks like he has had hours to plan a look every timesinternet he steps out in his gymwear! Well, we have decoded it for you. It's not rocket science. Just read on to find out how to get ready for the gym like Ranveer Singh in four super easy steps. Viral Bhayani 1. Get over the age-old, boring AF t-shirt + trouser combo. Embrace a new silhouette. Ranveer is never basic when it comes to his gymwear. Look at the compression tights paired with shorts - nothing complicated, but looks super edgy. Plus, it is functional and helps you train better. Viral Bhayani 2. Embrace sophisticated cuts. Look at Ranveer's jacket. It has thumbholes that are super useful if you want to keep the jacket on during training, plus it doubles up as a modern, youthful, stylish piece of outerwear that looks extraordinary while compared to your boring tracks. Viral Bhayani 3. Go for unusual colours. Dare to venture beyond your blacks and greys and blues. Look at Ranveer smashing it with a jacket that's maroon in colour. Viral Bhayani 4. Accessorize without fear. Just look at those sunnies - damn! What is that shape? That's pure fashion geometry from the future. They belong in an intergalactic battle as much as they do in Ranveer's gym outfit on a weekday. That, right there, is the goal, homies. To be able to go batshit crazy about what you wear while not giving two hoots about whether 'it works', but knowing fully well that yes, it does. Viral Bhayani Ranveer clearly knows how to turn a seemingly mundane outfit upside down into a crazy number with some calculated twists. The art of being able to do that without breaking a sweat is the real lesson worth learning.
  21. Here is your chance to know how well you know your idol or the successful people you follow. How do they keep the fun going while building such big companies at the same time? Elon Musk's father Errol Musk once said, “As far as Elon is concerned, I worry, what now? What is there? I get worried that he is getting bored of sending stuff to NASA every week or two weeks. I mean this is becoming passé… He is one of those people and certainly was as a boy, if he suddenly decides it's not interesting anymore he just kind of drops it. I doubt he will though.” So, the thing is, if it is not exciting you anymore then it may be time to change the direction of your boat and venture on a new journey. Here is how most successful people keep their passion and energy alive while chasing their craziest and wildest dreams. 1.

  22. For people who monitor their diets religiously, holiday season can be a true minefield. Most of us have to attend social gatherings, family outings or just deal with the all the mouth-watering delicacies being prepared at home. A lot of people use a lot of different strategies during times like these so that their diet doesn't go for a toss. The most frequently used technique by most people is to become anti-social. Can't control your food intake at parties? Simply stop going to parties. While this can help you stick to your “diet”, it's also a very good way to kill your social life. Let's be clear, fitness should revolve around your life and not the other way round. © Thinkstock On the other side of the spectrum, we have people who go bat-sh*t crazy just at the sight of food and eat everything. This of course, results in fat gain. This is prevalent in bodybuilders whose excuse is always, 'I'm bulking'! Being a guy who believes in maintaining a balance between fitness and a social life, let me give you some tips on to sail through the festive period without becoming an unsociable human. 1. Choose The Lesser Of Two Evils- Just Get A Taste And Move On The idea of “I'm going to eat junk so I might as well eat everything in sight” is not a good choice at all. Instead, indulge a little. Portion control is the key. Eat 1 pastry instead of 4. Pick foods with a lower calorie count. Just get a taste and move on. 2. Up Your Training Volume Before An Outing Depleting muscle glycogen can be a very useful trick before an event or social gathering. You simply have to do more sets or higher reps so that the muscle glycogen stores are depleted. When you deplete your muscle glycogen, you give the incoming carbs somewhere to go for storage instead of being converted to fat. You can do this a few days prior to a specific event or even right before heading to an event. A heavy high rep full body workout is the best option here. But remember not to do overdo it and scarf down everything you see. © Thinkstock 3. Protein And Green Veggies Fill up your plate with protein like chicken, paneer, fish, and green veggies. Then move on to something else. Protein is highly satiating and loads of vegetables help fill your stomach. This can help you control the damage tremendously. 4. Eat Before Leaving Home If the above solutions do not work for you, eat your meals at home before you leave for a party or dinner. I know this sounds a bit off but, it is what it is. Being full, you'll most probably avoid eating at the party, unless, of course, you are one of those people who like to gorge on food. 5. Intermittent Fasting Intermittent Fasting is basically not eating for a large part of the day (14-18 hours) and then eating your meals in the next 6-8 hours. This approach can be very helpful during days where you know you've got a party or a dinner where you have to eat. Unless you go completely berserk, you'll be unlikely to exceed your entirely daily caloric requirement in the one meal. If you can train beforehand, even better! And that's that! These strategies will to help you enjoy the holidays without losing track of your fitness goals. Now, do yourself a favor and eat a piece of cake for me!

  24. When British colonial rulers hastily left South Asia at Pakistan's painful birth in 1947, the ensuing chaos and violence meant little attention was paid to the architecture they built or influenced in the country's largest city, Karachi. More than 70 years later, architectural gems have been torn down and many are either crumbling or under threat from real estate developers in Pakistan's commercial capital which is mushrooming into a mega-city. The structures, weathered by the salty air, open the door to Karachi's colonial scars, researchers say, pointing out that many of the original owners were among millions of Muslim and Hindu refugees who fled their homes amid communal and religious violence that accompanied the end of British rule in India in 1947 and the creation of Pakistan. "Every brick of the heritage building narrates a story of those who left in 1947," said Akthar Baloch, a researcher who has written several books on Karachi's heritage. "They built them with love and affection. When people like me feel bad looking at the neglect of these heritage sites, one wonders how the families of the owners must feel if they ever visit Karachi. " geo_embedgallery Karachi's population has skyrocketed to nearly 17 million people in 2017 from an estimated 400,000 at independence, and every inch of the city has become a valuable commodity for developers building homes or drafting plans to alter the city's skyline with new skyscrapers. Jahangir Kothari Parade promenade, once an imposing British heritage site, is now obscured by a maze of overpasses and the shadow of Pakistan's tallest building. The promenade is part of a handful of buildings, along with the colonial-era Imperial Customs House, which have been restored to their former grandeur, but such projects are rare when the focus is on tearing down old and building new. Rapid urbanisation has ensured large-scale destruction, particularly in the old city areas, where more profitable multi-story residential buildings have sprung up. But amid the new concrete, remnants of the colonial legacy can still be seen, often recognisable by their state of neglect. The Saddar neighbourhood of Karachi has perhaps the largest concentration of British architectural history, while in the city's eastern district, the iconic old colonial jail has been declared a heritage site by Sindh province's antiquities department. So far more than 1,700 premises have been listed as heritage sites by the antiquities department and the process continues. The Sindh Cultural Heritage Preservation Act, introduced in 1994, has helped provide legal protection for structures of historical significance. But courts are also busy with cases of developers trying to circumvent such protection.
