  1. A trader works on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in New York, US, November 20, 2017. REUTERS/Brendan McDermid/Files NEW YORK: US fund investors stampeded into bonds and world stocks during the latest week, ignoring warning signs about stretched prices, according to the Investment Company Institute (ICI). During the week, nearly $17 billion poured into equities ? the most in any week since June. Bonds took in even more cash ? at $19 billion, the most on records that date to 2013, according to the trade group. The rush of cash into rising markets shows the resiliency of bonds, at least in terms of demand from investors, but also highlights people's more ambivalent relationship with stocks. Equities just a week earlier recorded a $21 billion withdrawal. While they won much of that back during the most recent week, 80 percent of that money moved into products that focus on stocks abroad, not in the United States. Domestic stock funds attracted just $3.4 billion, ICI said. "Many investors decided that it made sense to take profits," Kristina Hooper ? Invesco Ltd's global market strategist ? said, referring to the prior week. "By the next week, it was almost as if investors had done a 180 and were pouring money into equities. The whole time we've seen fixed income remain popular." Demand for bonds has endured yield spikes over the last two months that pushed long-dated Treasuries' prices down sharply and led billionaire bond veteran Bill Gross of Janus Henderson Group plc to declare a bear market in bonds. The two-year Treasury yield is at its highest levels in nearly a decade, breaching the two-percent mark. The 10-year is near 2.6 percent, up from 2.1 percent in September. Investors responded to that threat by pouring $15.8 billion into taxable bonds ? the most in any week since June 2015 ? and another $3.2 billion into municipal bonds, the most on records dating to 2013, according to the ICI. The data covers mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) based in the US. "There may not be a lot of difference between stocks and Treasuries in terms of valuation," said Hooper. "We want to be very vigilant because there's vulnerability in stretched valuations."
  2. A 22-match unbeaten run (spanning over five months), 15 points clear at the top of the table and facing a team they thrashed 5-0 earlier this season; there was nothing that could go wrong for Manchester City at Anfield. But, what none of the other Premier League teams could achieve this season was menacingly pulled off by a rampant Liverpool in what proved to be nine minutes of absolute mayhem on Sunday. Despite the absence of their star Philippe Coutinho - who recently shifted base to Camp Nou for 142 million pounds - and latest signing Virgil van Dijk - sidelined with a hamstring injury, the Reds cut off the wings of the high-flying Manchester City following a thrilling 4-3 win to send Pep Guardiola's side crashing to their first league defeat of the season. The Jurgen Klopp brigade who came out of the blocks on top, were always going to pose a problem for the Cityzens but only a few would have tipped them to come out on top. Making full use of the raucous Anfield crowd to their advantage, the Reds took the lead through Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who drove from his midfield berth in the heart of City's defence before unleashing a pinpoint-driven strike into the bottom left-hand corner of Ederson's net. With Liverpool up front, it was only a matter of time for City to level the proceedings thanks to Leroy Sane whose burst past Joe Gomez allowed him to unleash a powerful drive past the despairing Loris Karius who failed to close down the tight angle at the near post. The second half saw normalcy return to the game as City, understandably, were enjoying a lot of possession with Kevin De Bruyne. However, an absolutely scintillating nine-minute spell on the part of the hosts didn't just surprise City, but it also emboldened other teams, while proving City are human and pretty much beatable. © Reuters On the stroke of the hour mark, Roberto Firmino shrugged the disappointing John Stones off the ball easily before lifting a wonderful chipped effort past the on-rushing Ederson and in off the back post. Two minutes after Firmino restored their lead, Sadio Mane cut a sorry figure for City's back four after driving a wonderful left-footed effort into the top left-hand corner following a Mohamed Salah layoff. But, one of Liverpool's most memorable wins wasn't going to be complete until we saw their in-form striker Salah on the score sheet. The versatile striker, who was kept quiet throughout the game, grabbed the opportunity after picking up a poor clearance from Ederson 40-yards out with a perfect first-touch, before lifting a sumptuous chipped effort over the back-peddling Brazilian. © Reuters While many City fans would have arguably lost hope of a potential comeback, the visitors did give the Anfield club a scare after Bernardo Silva pulled one back in the 84th minute, before Ilkay Gundogan incredibly made it 4-3 in injury-time. Sergio Aguero had a chance to grab vital points for City in the final minute, but his header found the side of the net. In what was a tactical masterclass by Klopp, Liverpool held their nerves to out-run and out-think City by pressing their opponents high up the pitch to eventually pull off the impossible - handing City their first domestic loss since 23 April, 2017. Though City's quest of matching Arsenal's 'Invincibles' team of the 2003-04 season finally came to an end, the Guardiola side still remains 15 points atop the league with an opportunity for cross-town rivals Manchester United to cut deficit down to 12 points when the latter face Stoke City early on 16 January.

  3. It is no mystery that long distance relationships are hard. But the fact that they can be downright cruel is something only those that have walked on this pit fire can truly understand. Nobody wants to willingly put themselves through this torture, but such is life – you may find yourself falling for someone from Gurgaon (in which case, your relationship should be the least of your concerns!). At one point, LDRs were more common than the common cold, especially with war and young men being sent off to fight battles. LDRs were acceptable and understood unlike the hormonal suicide placard it holds today. Back then, the only comfort for the poor souls were letters, with traces of perfume and sometimes a pair of underwear for the more adventurous lot. Considering how letters are now officially artefacts and sending your knickers halfway across the world is one step short of turning into a Crime Patrol episode, somebody, somewhere in this world had to step in and save mankind. Certainly, our answers to LDRs are just specimens of technological progress because sometimes even instant message doesn't do justice to #majormissing. Here are a few examples of gadgets and apps you should get your hands on if dunking pieces of paper in your cologne doesn't fit your idea of romance across borders. Pillow Talk © Facebook_Little Riot Ever headed to bed with an intense need to hold or touch your significant other? The creator certainly did because pillow talk literally lets you hear your partner's heartbeat through the pillow without them having to be physically present in the room or in the vicinity even. Joanna Montgomery came up with the idea of a special ring sensor that each partner could wear at night. For it to work, the pillows have to have a fabric panel fitted inside. Every time one of them goes to sleep, the ring wirelessly communicates with the other person's pillow so it glows mildly and you can even hear their heartbeat. Even though nothing beats a good cuddle in real time, this Frankenstein pillow with a heartbeat can bring you pretty much close to the real deal. Kiiroo Onyx + Pearl © Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images The biggest challenge of long distance relationships is definitely the ***. No one wants to willingly endure a dry spell; that's something you wish on the person who ate the last chicken nugget. The Kiiroo Onyx + Pearl is a set of *** toys for couples that are done placing their faith in patience. Each of the two devices can be connected to your laptop via Bluetooth and it transfers messages over the internet. When both the gadgets are used together, it mimics the motion of ***. If creepy *** dolls are too much for you to handle, this can be a manageable feat. Ringly © Facebook_Ringly Ringly is another uber cool technology that you can wear. The nightmare of missing calls because of time zones is a real problem unless you're notified of every single message or call from your partner. Even though that's exactly what our phones do, this one is different because it is a wearable accessory. The ring vibrates every time you get a call or message so sleeping through them could be a tad bit more difficult. Taion Heart © onedio The Taion Heart is a white plastic heart that you can fit in your palm. If and when it is squeezed, it takes into account the pulse reading and the pressure of the squeeze. That information is then communicated to a smart phone with the Taion application, which then passes the information to the other Taion Heart, because come on, who doesn't want to hold hands from galaxies away? This could be a great valentine's present if you leave out the fact that you have to carry around a plastic heart in your hand all day long, but good for you if your lover finds that kind of commitment. Durex Fundawear © YouTube When you've got high-tech *** toys especially designed for couples, obviously Durex was never not going to be in the running. The Durex Fundawear uses touch technology in underwear by placing actuators which can be remotely stimulated with an app from anywhere in the world. The stimulation on the app replicates the human touch in the underwear. Well, at least now you know what undies to not choose when you're meeting your parents? Durex has actually gone on record to assure the comfort factor in the garments, without, of course, the indecent tingling that science can cause on demand. Kissenger: The Kiss Messenger © New Line Cinema Remember the episode from Big Bang Theory when Raj and Howard scandalise Leonard with their unstoppable bromance? Turns out the gadget does really exist where you can send actual kisses across the world, and no they don't have to fly. Kissenger basically lets you transfer your kiss to your one and only through two robotic devices that look like pigs or cows with lips. Basically, when you kiss your robot the Kissenger lips will mould around yours, and with your partner doing the same to his Kissenger, you can now kiss from across the globe; albeit with fake robot lips. You can even connect the device to your laptop and use it while skyping with your partner. We can forget kissing the frog to get a prince now. You can kiss some metal and science will make sure you don't dry out in life like a raisin in the sun. The Hug Shirt © CuteCircuit Pretty self-explanatory this one! The Hug shirt has been awarded as one of the Best Inventions of the Year by Time Magazine and we don't see why not. Hugs are amazing and nobody deserves to get through life without warm bear hugs. The sensors in the hug shirt can feel the strength of the touch, the skin warmth and the heartbeat of the sender. The actuators in the shirt replicate the sensations of touch and feel of the hug to the shirt that transfers over Bluetooth from your mobile phone to the actual shirt. Fix A Fight © Fix the Fight Obviously communication is not your strongest game when it comes to LDRs. What can be worse than being miles away from your lover? Picking a fight you can't douse. Well, Fix a fight does exactly that for you. Technically not a gadget, Fix a Fight is an app designed to help you calm yourself and your partner down. It comes with a cool interface designed by a psychotherapist so you don't end up ageing alone with 15 cats. The app an actually help you with coming to terms with your feelings when there is a massive communication gap, between you and your partner. Unless you are a giant piece of cat litter, this app can really help you through times that are not so rocking. Currently, the app is only available on iOS. With technology moving faster than the Himalayan rapids, our minds are still reeling from the fact that artificial intelligence has come to a point where it can substitute *** and physical intimacy. Has this made life easier or are we headed in a more distant mechanical future? Either way, for anyone in a LDR, these little toys can possibly make life a little easier.

Ankita and I have discussed marriage. There's no finalized date yet but we have discussed marriage. I'll be happy to get married to her. She is an amazing person.

  5. The New Year's just begun and we've already got our travel plans sorted (thanks to all the long-weekends).

  6. Every New Year, hundreds of people make one very common resolution and that is to lose their belly fat and get abs. Though we have been publishing research-based articles on fat loss for a while now, a lot of people still follow a lot of senseless advice floating on the internet. Once again, here we are giving some very logical and credible advice on how to get rid of belly fat and love handles while building rock solid abs. 1) Stop Doing Hundreds Of Side Bends And Twisters Many fitness YouTubers have been recommending these two exercises and promise belly fat/love handles reduction. Well, even if you do these for a million reps for the rest of your life, you will not lose an inch of belly fat. Why? Because you cannot spot reduce fat! Your body loses fat as a whole. And please, the same thing applies to face fat, belly fat or wherever you are holding fat. 2) Consume Adequate Amount Of Protein “I just want to lean out. Do I also need to consume a decent amount of protein?” Yes, you do! Optimal protein intake is not just for bodybuilders or powerlifters, it's important for every human being. Your body can either lose the fat and muscle which will make you skinny fat. Or it can lose fat and build some lean muscle which will enhance your body composition and metabolism. Building and maintenance of muscle mass requires adequate protein consumption. Aim for 1.5-2g of protein per Kg of your bodyweight. So, if you are weighing 90kgs, your consumption should be 135-180gms of protein per day. Individuals with a higher body fat % need not consume that much protein. 3) Increase Your NEAT NEAT stands for Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis. It involves the burning of calories on all activities other than exercise or sports. Some examples of NEAT are walking your dog or taking the stairs instead of the elevators. Your body's metabolism is predetermined by your genes. And you can only workout for a couple of hours 3-5 times a week. But you can still burn a lot of calories if you up your NEAT. There has been plenty of research on this and I have personally lost a decent amount of fat by simply increasing my NEAT. 4) The Only Two Exercises You Need For Abs 'Abs are made in the kitchen.' You have probably heard this and it is 100% true as well. But just like any other muscle group, abs also need to be worked on. Thus, some amount of direct ab training is required. Though there are plenty of strenuous and fancy looking ab workout routines by fitness models, you don't need to do them. Rope ab crunches and weighted captain's chair leg raise are more than enough. Perform 3 sets of each with 10-15 reps twice a week and progressively overload. If this is supported by a well-structured diet and weight training, you will have abs in no time. 5) Order Protein When Eating Out You cannot out workout your diet. The fundamental requirement for losing fat is a caloric deficit diet. But life happens and you cannot consume your planned meals all the time. There will be plenty of times you will need to eat something outside. In such cases, it is best to consume high protein foods rather than foods rich in fats or carbohydrates. No, fats & carbs are not bad. But out of the three macronutrients, protein has the highest thermic effect. If you consume 200 calories from protein, a lot of calories are lost in heat during digestion and only 120 calories are available for your body to process. This allows you to be in a caloric deficit despite eating out. There you go guys, THAT'S ALL you really need to do.
  7. You probably have seen the viral picture of a bride celebrating as she is getting married in her hospital bed, a picture that has touched the hearts of everyone world over. Heather Mosher sadly passed away after a few hours of getting married. She was battling an aggressive type of breast cancer that she had been diagnosed with in December 2016 and lost her battle a year later. But a silver lining to the day she was diagnosed came in the form of her boyfriend, Dave Mosher, who proposed to her as they rode a horse-drawn carriage. I am in awe of the strength Dave's love inspired in Heather even in her last hours. She was his great love and he was hers. I pray these moments give Dave the same strength now to carry on the legacy of their love. Heather, you are greatly missed. The earth froze yesterday as the warmth of your light ascended to be with God for eternity. Until we meet again my dear friend. Watch over us. Original post from 12/24/17. A post shared by Christina (@christina.lee.photography) on Dec 28, 2017 at 6:06pm PST While talking to ABC News, Dave said, “I had planned to ask her on Dec. 23, 2016. That morning we had gone to the doctor after she had found a lump on her breast.” After getting a confirmation through a biopsy that Heather indeed had breast cancer, Dave wanted to propose even more. Recalling the day, he said, “Now more than ever, I needed for her to know that she's not going to do this alone. When you're with your great love ... it's like trying to separate your arm from your body, you can't do it. You're connected. She was my girl.” And people say that true love doesn't exist. If these arms could hold you until the end of time, I would never let you go. A post shared by Christina (@christina.lee.photography) on Jan 3, 2018 at 9:35pm PST Even after undergoing surgeries and chemotherapy, the aggressive form of cancer spread to her brain, and by October she had to be put on a ventilator. Originally, they were set to wed on 30th December, but Heather's doctor suggested the couple wed “sooner rather than later,” the groom said. Preponing their nuptials, the couple exchanged vows in front of family and friends inside St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut, on 22nd December. Even though she was on life support, Heather had a wedding gown on, along with a wig. Standing in front of everyone in the chapel, I was hesitant to pull out my camera. As someone who wanted nothing more than to see my friend truly happy, I felt I had to capture these images, which by this point I knew were her final moments with us. What you clearly see here is two people who were destined to be joined as one. A love like no other captured for all to see. My gift to her. A post shared by Christina (@christina.lee.photography) on Dec 27, 2017 at 10:02am PST The couple exchanged their wows in the hospital's chapel, and Dave added that some of his wife's final words were her vows. He said, “It was just like surreal because I'm supposed to be exchanging vows to her and here I am saying goodbye.” Of all the photos this one breaks my heart the most. He was longing to have a chance to build a life with his bride, but knew she had to say goodbye. He wished more than anything to take her pain away. But knew the only way her pain would end, was if her body finally gave up the precious life within. I cry as I write these words. A post shared by Christina (@christina.lee.photography) on Jan 2, 2018 at 10:29pm PST Her funeral was then held on Saturday, the original date of the wedding. No, I'm not crying, you're crying.
  8. Lucky enough to have a solid start in Bollywood with Om Shanti Om, not many could have thought she would come this far. But the fabulous Deepika Padukone proved herself as a mature actress, not to mention a fashion icon that would roll heads. Padukone turns 32 today, and her fans are as generous in their praise today as they should be.
  9. A sensational run at home, almost all of their big stars in decent form and a new mission in the New Year; the Indian cricket team will face their ultimate test when they lock horns with South Africa in a highly-anticipated tour comprised of three Tests, six ODIs and three T20Is starting from 5 January. The modern era of cricket has seen official broadcasters trying to build hype around major matches with hard-hitting yet relatable promotional advertisements. The iconic 'Mauka Mauka' ad was definitely one of the highlights that captured the imagination of fans. Now, with India's gruelling tour of South Africa, the broadcasters of the promising series have once again dug deep to come up with interesting promos for the fans. The Sony Pictures Sports Network, the official broadcaster of the tour in India, released an ad titled 'Hisaab 25 saal ka". Playing on the very fact that India have never won a Test series in the rainbow nation since 1992, the promo tries really hard to evoke a yearning for revenge amongst the Indian cricket fans. To make it more dramatic, the ad also shows Sachin Tendulkar walking off after being dismissed with an emotional voice-over "Badla lenge bhagwaan ke apmaan ka" deliberately layered along. Indian broadcasters have often used similar tactics, playing on the record of the national team against their opponents in the past. And, the latest promo was no different. But, despite their best effort, the video fails miserably in evoking any sense of revenge, instead, coming across as rather juvenile. On the other hand, South Africa, too, produced their own promotional video for the upcoming tour. And, to the sheer delight of cricket fans, it has got no jingoism or revenge drama. Rather than going for the over-the-top theatrics, the video focuses on the shared history of the two countries, one that binds the nations together. Beginning with the visuals of Mahatma Gandhi - who was also pivotal in South Africa's independence - to the common struggles for freedom shared by the two countries, the video highlights the first Test played between India and South Africa and then continues to capture their duels to the present. Under the leadership of Mohammad Azharuddin, India was first team to tour the Proteas in 1992 after their re-entry into international cricket following the lifting of a ban imposed during the apartheid era. The Proteas lost more than a generation of its players due to the racist policies of its White government. Given their long history of racial segregation and institutionalized discrimination against its 'black population', the international sanctions put against South Africa cut short the careers of people like Barry Richards, Ali Bacher and Peter Pollock amongst others - all of whom were cricketers with immense potential. © Reuters Till 1970, South African cricket was restricted to an 'all-white' game which in turn attracted an indefinite suspension from the International Cricket Conference (now International Cricket Council). Barred from international cricket, South Africa's cricket team tried their own rebel series and remained pretty isolated from the world for the next two decades. For the two countries who share something as historic as India and South Africa actually do, the promo ad of the Proteas for the upcoming series couldn't have been any better - something even Indian cricket fans will also be proud to see. Thus, India's highly-awaited tour of South Africa is much bigger than just a revenge series, rather it symbolises a rare piece of history that the two nations share.
  10. If love is what you are looking for in 2018, look no further. Geo TV?s upcoming drama ?Silsilay? portrays a compelling story of romance. The stellar cast includes actress Moomal Shaikh, Hiba Bukhari, singer-turned-actor Junaid Khan, Muneeb Butt, Shagufta Aijaz, Seemi Raheel, and Waseem Abbas. The drama tells the story of two sisters, Hira and Abiha, who were abandoned by their father ? a gambler who didn?t want to bear responsibilities. Left with no other option the girls? mother moves in with her sister, whose son Jawad takes on an important role as the story develops. Abiha falls in one-sided love with her neighbour and childhood friend Shahzaib, whereas Hira has serious feelings for her cousin Jawad. ?Abiha is the eldest sister who shares a strong bond with her family, especially her mother. She is a strong woman, who is very family-oriented,? lead actress Moomal Shaikh told Geo.tv. Jawad, who returns from the US after completing his studies to start a life in Pakistan, is completely unaware of his cousin?s feelings for him. Discussing her experience of working with the cast and crew, Moomal said it was ?simply amazing.? ?Junaid is the only one I have worked with before but I quickly developed a comfort around everyone. It was a very family-like environment. We were all joking around all the time. Everyone was really understanding and patient.?

  11. Badrinath star Varun Dhawan "would love to" get married in 2018 but fears the same thing every young person in love does: parents' reaction. Dhawan, 30 ? said to be in a relationship with designer Natasha Dalal ? wants to get married this year, an Indian media outlet reported, but the item may not actually be on his agenda in 2018. "I don't know how my parents would react to it. Being Punjabis, they would want to do it the traditional way. "The next step is something every individual wants to take at some point, but right now, it's not on the agenda," the Student of the Year actor told Times of India. "I have just moved into my new house, and I want to enjoy this part of life for a couple of years before I think of the next step," he noted. The couple has been seen together on several occasions, with Dalal also attending a screening of Dhawan's Judwaa 2. Prior to his latest movie, he starred in his father's project David Dhawan Badrinath ki Dulhania. Both the films were a Box Office success. The actor is engaged in a Shoojit Sircar-directed movie for October and will revert to Sui Dhaaga once Anushka Sharma returns from South Africa.
  12. 2017 has been one heck of a year and every time we go back to the year that was, the learning curve is immense. 2017 has also been really ripe for love and relationships with the new and emerging dating trends, defining relationships in a newer, unhealthier way. We're however convinced that 2017 was a defining year for the millennial crowd and it definitely had its ups and downs. There were break-ups, weddings, regrets and many more events that shaped the relationship curve worldwide and made our work easier! Here's looking back at you kid! Goodbye and good riddance 2017, thanks for teaching us that: (1) If you do adopt too many babies from developing nations Brad Pitt will eventually leave you. (Have a Rachel in your life?) (c)Youtube (2) No matter how many boys you date over the 'Weekend', you will always be a Belieber. (don't believe us? Ask Selena G) (c)Twitter (3) 'Cos hard work does pay off (c)Twitter (4) Be creative on your online dating profile (that's when you'll get the ladies in 2018) (c)Tinder/Niket Biswas (5) If your private life sucks, it definitely makes your social media life epic! (c)Pinterest (6) Send nudes, don't send e-mails! (c)Youtube (7) Punjabi boys can't get American girls (do you know?) (c)Pinterest (8) When your Hollywood career is going nowhere, turn to England! (or maybe marry the simple one in 2018?) (c)Twitter (9) No matter how far you go news and media will always follow you (like we did…yeah, we did follow) (c)Times of India (10) Don't get married the same month as Virat (barely got any coverage, did you Krunal?)

(c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Love is truly a four letter word with 50 more connotations. This year love and relationships had a marvellous twist and we loved every bit of it! We can't wait to welcome 2018 completely unabashed and with arms open wider than Sunny Leone's legs! (back in the day, of course)
  13. Revenge is a dish best served sweet, sprinkled with badassery and sarcasm and Tisca Chopra just proved it like a boss, in this short film called 'Churri'. What will you do if you find out that your partner is cheating on you? You will either lose your sh*t and angrily confront that person or have an emotional breakdown, or leave that person and possibly wish to never cross paths with them in your life ever again. © churri short film But, doing what Tisca did in this short film is possibly the last thing to ever roam in the closest vicinity of your mind and definitely needs lots of courage too. And this is what is making us bow down in front of Tisca (for her incredible acting) and her character (for being as strong as a rock and sharp as a knife in teaching her husband the best possible lesson). While Tisca plays the wife, Anurag Kashyap and Surveen Chawla also do a commendable job in the movie as the husband and the woman he is cheating with. We won't reveal what her ultimate revenge on her husband was; you can watch it here for yourself and simply marvel. Tisca Chopra is a powerhouse of phenomenal acting, a glimpse of which we have already seen in 'Taare Zameen Par' and 'Chutney'. This time around too, it took her only 12 minutes to blow our minds away, leaving us with a plot twist we were least expecting. People can't get enough of 'Churri' and have flooded the Internet with messages praising both Tisca's performance and the short film. So much thrill & tension in just 12 calm yet brutal minutes of #Chhuri. Steady build-up, and turning of the knife. Tisca Chopra @tiscatime has taken short-film making to a new level https://t.co/NkA6hyy3Md via @YouTube — Shekhar Gupta (@ShekharGupta) December 20, 2017 What a film #Chhuri.. kudos @anuragkashyap72 @tiscatime @SurveenChawla and I can see Evershine Redwood Tisca ðð https://t.co/ekOSVtDRFr — Vinod Kapri (@vinodkapri) December 20, 2017 Short, sharp and so, so layered. #Chhuri is absolutely delightful.

  14. Love her or hate her, you simply cannot ignore the famously infamous Bigg Boss contestant, Arshi Khan. A true entertainer, she is often held at a virtual gun point for her brutal statements. Begum in purple @arshikhanteam @arshikhanteam ظ#. . . ط. #salmankhan #kareenakapoor #arshikhan #biggboss11 # A post shared by Arshi Khan (@arshikhanteam) on Dec 12, 2017 at 5:12am PST Adding more fuel to the never extinguishing fire, there is speculation that the reality star might be arrested from the Bigg Boss house owing to her absence for a pending court case. So apparently, a case was filed against her in the Jalandhar High Court because she hurt sentiments after painting the flag of India and Pakistan on her body and pose for a controversial photo shoot. According to various sources, the case was initially put on hold owing to her participation in 'Bigg Boss 11' but rumour has it that she might have a warrant issued against her. She was recently in the news for her constant bickering with fellow contestant Shilpa Shinde and also Vikas Gupta. Nevertheless, she is a pure entertainer and viewers are loving her. However, her arrest (if it happens) is going to be a major damper on the show and there are gonna be some pissed AF fans.
  15. We've all gone through our share of heartbreaks and often wondered what it would be like to be loved unconditionally, without agendas and watermarks that establish a union. Finding the right person to be with for the rest of our lives is one of the most fundamental features of living in harmony and companionship. Sometimes it so happens that the baggage and hurt from previous relationships gets carried forward to newer associations and one may feel burdened to hold on to things until they become irresolvable or redundant. But if you find the right companion to share these burdens with, it becomes a lesson; something that helps you grow through the power and understanding of love. The concept of finding 'the one' has become overtly overrated. We aggressively go on a lifelong search to find the right fit, until we settle for what seems good for us. The concept of finding the one person has always been forced down our throat through fairytales and tales of yore and we set standards so high to find that one person, we seldom forget the intricate truth about finding what we actually need- to grow and learn from the right person who comes your way. Because if you're in love with the right person, you'll grow beautifully as an individual, as the best version of you will be harnessed through this relationship. Your Age Old Emotional Healing Will Be A Lot Clearer When you're loved the way you want to be loved, all your baggage starts to make sense and that's when you start letting go of everything negative you've been holding on to. That's because when you find the right person, you'll be accepted in your truest sense, gaining back that confidence you lost somewhere along the way. They may not feel the intensity of what you're feeling while letting go but just their sheer presence will make a huge difference. (c)Giphy Your Negative Thought Process Will Change We gather some negativity from the past that didn't suit us one bit. The negativity surrounds us and makes us doubt a lot about ourselves. If you're coming from a negative place, from your past experiences, new love will make you see just the positive, letting go of all that negative that's been dwelling for a while. If you felt negatively about certain aspects about life, you will begin to see only positivity and that is the most perceptive change ever you'll notice. (c)Pexels You Will Love Yourself A Lot More Than You Did Stronger relationship teaches us the value of self worth. Agreed, weaker ones challenge self worth but a strong, real relationship will help you love yourself a lot more than what you did before. That's because the person you're with will make you realise how important you are as an individual, not just to them, but as a whole. It's true you don't need anyone to make you realise your self-worth but sometimes when we falter and doubt ourselves, we need that one push to honour who we are as individuals. When you begin to love yourself enough, there is a lot more you can give back in return, leading to a symbiotic, happier association for life. (c)Pexels Your Dreams And Goals Will Always Receive The Highest Regard When you're in love with the right person, they will always put your happiness, dreams and goals as their top priority, along with theirs because they believe in equality. You will learn to do the same because that's what you learn from the right person. They will challenge your aspirations and encourage you to do your best. Not just that, you will be highly encouraged by them to do what you love, every single time, making you realise that there is a great deal of learning in that act or gesture. (c)Pexels You Will Learn Things You Haven't Before A lot of learning goes amiss in toxic relationships and half hearted associations. The idea of compassion and caring usually gets lost. When you find the right person, all the basic elements will come knocking at your door. You will learn how to care for another human being without any strings attached. The idea of honesty and non-judgement will seem natural to you. Trust will be re-established and will not feel stifling but something more innate and natural. It's like re-learning all the right things with the right person! (c)Pexels You Will Learn Never To Settle For Anything Toxic For You The most important learning out of finding the right person is to never settle for anything painful or toxic. The right person will always give you a sense of hope and help you unwind from everything toxic from the past. This will up your benchmark to recognise the good and bad for you and make you see life differently. (c)Pexels If you go looking for the right person and find them, it can turn your world around. You become resilient to life's troubles and find it in yourself to conjure the strength to fight anything. True and actual learning only comes about when you find the right kind of love that makes you realise both, your strengths and weaknesses.
  16. 2017 has been a great year when it comes to films in the horror genre. Right from novel adaptations to prequels, horror films kept us glued to our seats and gave us major spooks. Where on one hand, 'It' smashed all box office records and gained immense popularity in the opening weekend, the 'Conjuring' series presented another version of the demonic doll 'Annabelle' and attracted record-breaking footfall at the theatres. Here are the top 10 horror movies, which made 2017 a historic year. It Directed by Andy Muschietti, 'It' broke all records and became the highest grossing horror film of all time. The haunting bogeyman of Stephen King's novel was devilish and spookier than the previous version of the film. The story builds up when a small boy named George disappears inside a drain while running behind his boat. The series of incidents that follow later are meaningful and scary enough to cause jitters. 'It' or Pennywise, the dancing clown made us realize that a horror movie is just not about fear but more than that. Get Out Nominated for his first Golden Globe, actor Daniel Kaluyya describes the film as a well-documented version of everyday experiences. This thriller cum horror has a plot that sends chills down your spine and keeps you glued till the end. 'Get Out' is nominated in the Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, and star Daniel Kaluuya scored a Best Actor nomination in the category for Golden Globes. Annabelle: Creation 'Annabelle: Creation' is the fourth film in the 'Conjuring' franchise. The film depicts how the cursed doll came into being and killed many through her evil existence. The demon inside the doll possesses a teenage orphan and makes her kill others. Split Directed by celebrated director M. Night Shyamalan, the film is based on the existence of 23 different personalities inside an individual. James McAvoy beautifully carries out the role and arouses the real 'beast' in him. This is a performance of a lifetime and is worthy of many awards this season. Raw A teenage French-Belgian horror drama depicts cannibalism at its best. A young girl's taste for human skin is intoxicating and thrilling at the same time. 'Raw' has no space for criticism, but applause. Prevenge The characters in 'Prevenge' are expressive and easily make you delve into imagination, it would be better to call it a 'slasher', right on its mark. Directed by Alice Lowe, the story of a pregnant serial killer is much consuming and smartly puts the viewer in amazement. Gerald's Game Another Stephen King's story comes to the big screen with a captivating screenplay and great performances. A combo of horror and thrill, the film is based on how a *** game turns into the worst form of terror for Jessie, whose husband Gerald dies during the game while she is handcuffed. The Shape of Water Directed by Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, the film has received seven Golden Globe nominations this year. Described as a 'creature feature and a melodrama' by Business Insider, the film presents a compelling story of a mute woman serving as a cleaning lady at a top-secret United States government lab during the 1960s, when she develops a relationship with a creature in the lab. A Dark Song This Irish horror is a story of a woman and an occultist played by Catherine Walker and Steve Oram respectively, who indulge into practicing black-magic rituals and fall prey to something terrifying – A result of witchcraft. This is a powerful portrayal of how a minimum budget film yields a worth-watch affair. Mother Jennifer Lawrence tries stepping into different shoes every time, and this time her performance is noteworthy. Directed by Darren Aronofsky, 'Mother' is pretty similar to 1968 film 'Rosemary's Baby'. Though the film has been called an artist's auto-critique, Javier Bardem and Lawrence together make it a strong affair.
  17. Couple of the year, marriage of the decade, a dream wedding and many more amazing synonyms have been invented in less than 24 hours to describe the magical fairytale of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma. The couple tied the knot in the gorgeous countryside of Tuscany, Italy and kept it a very private affair. © Instagram A Rs 1 crore diamond ring, Sabyasachi outfits that cost more than a luxury car, and a resort where the price of one night goes up to around Rs 13 lakh, the whole affair was kept private but it was nothing short of what you call a GRAND affair. After all, it's not everyday that the captain of one of the biggest cricket teams in the world marries an actress from one of the biggest movie industries in the world. It's only natural to think what next? Well, the plan includes a short trip to South Africa during the New Year's where they will be together and post that they will have their base in Mumbai. The couple is awaiting possession of their apartment in Omkar apartments in Worli, Mumbai and the price is estimated to be around a whopping Rs 34 crore! © Omkar realtors © Omkar realtors © Omkar realtors The bedroom will obviously be sea-facing and calling it a beautiful view is an understatement. © Omkar realtors The apartment will also have a Master bath and a study room. © Omkar realtors © Omkar realtors And of course, a sky terrace. © Omkar realtors According to reports, Yuvraj Singh is also going to be in their neighbourhood as he has bought an apartment on the 25th floor.
  18. Seven years ago, Maneesh Sharma's debut film 'Band Bajaa Baraat' gave us the best onscreen kiss in the history of modern Hindi cinema. It also gave us two powerhouse actors in Anushka Sharma and Ranveer Singh. But, most importantly, the film unknowingly ended up serving us a flavourful reminder of the Dilli that resides in the smog-filled Delhi of today. 'Band Baaja Baraat' wasn't the first Hindi film to be set in Delhi, nor would it be the last. But, there was something oddly refreshing about the way the film brought alive the narrow gallis of Delhi, the city's obsession with grand weddings, even fancier wedding planners, and every Dilliwala's love for bread-pakodas. It was something that most films failed to capture, essentially making 'Band Baaja Baraat' one of the best love letters to Dilli and the people who make up the city. The one with dreams, and the grit to see it turn to reality. © Yash Raj Films In the film, which was also the eclectic Ranveer Singh's debut, the actor played Bittoo, a street-smart and impulsive Delhite, who is desperate to do anything needed to ensure he is not yanked out from his idyllic world in Delhi, and forced to go back to his village and work in sugarcane fields under the hawkish gaze of his strict father. Anushka Sharma's Shruti on the other hand, is starkly different. She's ambitious, a go-getter, headstrong and knows how to achieve what she dreams of. Together, they not only make a dream pair, but also effective business partners, running the city's successful wedding business. Shaadi mubarak indeed! All is well until that damn kiss. Until she falls in love with him, despite instructing him not to do the same. “Mere paas nahin hai love-shove ke liye time,” she had warned him initially, but a night of alcohol-fuelled celebrations undid the significance of her own instruction. There's a moment in between their kiss, where Shruti pulls back, and looks at Bittoo. It's not like they're looking at each other for the first time, but it still feels like they are seeing each other for the first time; for being people other than their business partners. Their kiss is laced with urgency, with hesitation, and essentially becomes a decision that alters the rest of their lives, and the future of their company. © Yash Raj Films The morning after is significant. There is awkwardness in the air, as much as there is realisation. While dropping Shruti home in his scooter, all Bittoo wants to do is leave the scene as quickly as possible in the hope that if they're far away from each other, maybe their night together-- which he classifies as a bad decision-- will be promptly forgotten. Shruti, on the other hand, is coming to terms with the realisation that maybe she'd like to go against her better judgement and mix business with pleasure. Maybe, she can fall for Bittoo after all. Shruti is not the only one holding that specific belief about Bittoo. Ranveer Singh's endearing performance as the boy who is yet to realise what he wants, ensures that even the audience falls in love with Bittoo, hook line, and sinker. We love him for his childish ways, for how he looks out for Shruti, and how he negotiates the middle-men. But, most of all we fall in love with the man he becomes when he doesn't have Shruti around. It then dawns on him how much she means to him, and how much she loves him. But, he's not your usual Yashraj hero, so he obviously can't spread his arms and mutter an “I love you” in the hope to win her love. Because, his rugged Dilliness hasn't allowed for him to be coached in the subtle art of romance. He then expresses his emotions to Shruti the only way he can. “Tere bina koi bhi cheez mein mauj nahin hai,” he tells her simply. © Yash Raj Films His frank, disarming confession is one of the things that's so great about 'Band Baaja Baarat'. The film never tries to ape the templates or clichés of the yesteryear romantic films. Instead, it finds the extraordinary in the ordinary. Take Shruti, for instance. She could be any girl from Delhi; a girl who has dreams that may seem beyond her capabilities, and who is being forced to think about marriage over it. As Shruti, Anushka Sharma brought to the table a kind of poise and maturity that not just elevates the movie, but makes Shruti a unique independent woman, who instead of feeling sorry for herself for not being loved back, decides to move on with her life, in the only way she can. Neither does she beg Bittoo to fall in love with her, nor does she demand an explanation. Because, she is well aware that sometimes life doesn't work out the way we want it to. Even when they get back together despite their difference to plan that one big wedding, she behaves like an adult, and keeps her personal differences away. The unusually sparkling chemistry that both the leads share further elevates the viewing experience of Band Baaja Baarat to such an extent that every time they are in the same frame, we're forced to remember why it feels so great to watch two people in love onscreen. In a way, 'Band Baaja Baarat' is also early evidence; a sort of a making of the hugely popular stars and acting powerhouses that Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma have become today. Whether it is playing Alauddin Khilji in the yet to be released 'Padmavati', a confused rich son of a dysfunctional family in 'Dil Dhadakne Do', or a charming thief in 'Lootera', Ranveer Singh has knocked it out with every single performance, even melting the heart of the dreaded taskmaster that is Sanjay Leela Bhansali who has cast him in three films. Equally talented is Anushka Sharma; who has displayed more versatility than most heroines her age, even spearheading a production company with her brother and giving a break to newcomers with out of the box stories to tell. Both Anushka Sharma, and Ranveer Singh have now become actors of repute, but back in 2007, they were just newcomers giving their best, just like Shruti and Bittoo in the film, who must become as successful as the actors essaying them. There's no better proof than that about Ranveer and Anushka being the perfect choices for the film. They just took our hearts away 'ainvayi ainvayi ainvayi'.
  19. Diljit is one of the most loved celebrities in the country, he is literally everyone's unproblematic fave. A post shared by Diljit Dosanjh (@diljitdosanjh) on Oct 31, 2017 at 8:00am PDT Even though he is pretty private about his love life, but when it comes to Kylie Jenner, the whole world knows about his obsession her. He would go and shout from the rooftops about how much he loves her, if he could, probably. There was a time when he was leaving comments on Kylie's Instagram pictures on basically a daily basis.

  20. The legendary Shashi Kapoor had fans around the globe. From his on-screen presence to his acting, the man was a complete package of sheer brilliance and received love and admiration not just from India, but from across borders as well. “I'm a fatalist.

  21. Arguably one of the most popular and iconic sportsperson in the country, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has possibly achieved everything there is in international cricket. His leadership skills aided India in one of its darkest hours, while the slam-bang strokemaking abilities Dhoni possessed earned him the tag of the greatest finisher in the modern era. But, his exploits aren't just restricted to the national colours. As much as his success with Team India, Dhoni has also made huge gains with Chennai Super Kings (CSK) while playing in the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL). From 2008 till 2015, Dhoni led Chennai to two IPL titles (2010 and 2011) and propelled them to the tournament final four times (2008, 2012, 2013 and 2015). BCCL With the Jharkhand cricketer at the helm, Chennai also won the Champions League T20 tournament twice in 2010 and 2014. However, Dhoni's association with Chennai came to an abrupt end in 2015 after his side and Rajasthan Royals were banned for two IPL seasons on charges of corruption. Since then, the Chennai fans have patiently waited, not just for their favourite team to return to the IPL fold, but also to witness the return of their one true 'Thalaiva' (leader) in the iconic yellow jersey. And, their wait is finally over as Chennai led by their iconic leader Dhoni is set to return for the 2018 IPL edition. Next Summer, we will be there! #ManyHappyReturnsOfCSK pic.twitter.com/zkbgzUzchV — Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) May 21, 2017 With the IPL Governing Council's recent decision to allow the franchise to retain up to five players, whatever little doubt Dhoni fans had regarding his return to Chennai has undoubtedly vanished. “An IPL Franchise is eligible to secure up to five players by virtue of a combination of Player Retention (Pre Player Auction) and Right to Match (RTM) (During the Player Auction),” BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary said in a statement. “The player pool available for Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals for retention/Right to Match will be the players' who played for them respectively in IPL 2015 and who were part of RPS and Gujarat Lions squads in IPL 2017,” he added. And, as soon as the news broke, Chennai fans did what they do best - make a hell lot of noise. All the jovial Dhoni memes and cheerful CSK anthems came back to life as Chennai fans thronged social media.

  22. On 6th December, 1992, Babri Masjid, situated in the Indian holy town of Ayodhya (considered to be the birthplace of Lord Ram) was razed to the ground. In what turned out to be an unprovoked act of violence, many Hindu groups celebrated the fall of Babri Masjid which later fuelled a lot of communal incidents in the country as hundreds of innocent people died. While the issue is yet to be resolved, not many people know the history behind the ancient structure. Many believe the 16th century structure was named after Babur, who was the first Mughal emperor of India that laid the foundation for the Mughal dynasty. Many believe that Babur was an esteemed writer himself and 'Babur nama' (his autobiographical work) consists of many clues to his incredible hold on the Chagatai language, the spoken form of Andijan-Timurids. His autobiography consists of one of the most extensive details on how he started the Mughal dynasty which ruled for almost three-centuries in India. © famous people The works of Babur, written by himself, show Babur's love for young boys. Many believe that Babur was bisexual and by his own admission in Babur nama (as published in the abridged version of Dilip Hiro's Babur Nama), he was infatuated with Baburi, a teenage boy. He was so smitten by the young boy's charm that he even composed a couplet for him which goes something like this: “Nor power to stay was mine, nor strength to part; I became what you made of me, oh thief of my heart.” This history of Babri Masjid over the years was lost in translation as the original text was a mix of Persian and other ancient languages. While the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) itself holds the Ram Mandir agenda close to its organisational ideals, this aspect has never been blown out of proportion. Many LGBT groups, however, enthusiastically use Babur's name in their argument against article 377. © BCCL While the demolition of Babri Masjid remains a seminal event for Hindu-Muslim communities across the country, it's incredibly hard to resist the mystery behind naming the mosque as 'Babri'.
  23. People know Shashi Kapoor as one of the most incredibly handsome men of his time, son of Prithviraj Kapoor and youngest brother of Raj Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor, and a versatile actor who was loved by people across all generations. His iconic dialogue “Mere paas maa hai” from the 1975 release 'Deewar' is fresh in our memories even today and despite watching the movie numerous times, it still leaves us teary-eyed every single time we see the two brothers, Ravi and Vijay, fighting with each other. So what made this one dialogue, originally meant to use as an argument against the wrongdoings of his criminal brother, attain cult status? Probably that's the charm of Shashi Kapoor and we don't think any other actor can even come close to recreating it. © Wikimedia With the demise of Shashi Kapoor, it is an end of an era for Bollywood, leaving a void that can never be filled. However, what many people don't know is that Shashi Kapoor was not only a great actor but also a passionate romantic, whose love story has been immortalized in the golden pages of Bollywood. The struggles he went through both on the personal and professional front and how he overcame all those obstacles with the help of his wife, Jennifer Kendal. Shashi Kapoor and Jennifer Kendal's love story was not an ordinary affair, neither was it easy for the two to get married. After facing resistance from Jennifer's family and particularly her father, Geoffrey Kendal, cupid finally weaved its magic around the two star-crossed lovers and the two got married in 1958. © Merchant Ivory Productions Shashi Kapoor and Jennifer Kendal loved each other deeply and fought all odds to finally get married. In fact, there are a lot of sweet instances they shared after their wedding. It is said that when the couple travelled to Calcutta for their honeymoon, the hotel room in which they stayed, is surprisingly till date addressed 'The Shashi Kapoor Room'. It was said to be love at first sight for the then 18-year-old Shashi Kapoor who met Jennifer for the first time in Calcutta in 1956. Jennifer was a part of her father's 'Shakespeareana' production and Shashi was a member of the Prithvi Theatre company. © Twitter Soon, Shashi Kapoor too joined 'Shakespeareana' for a brief time and the two worked together in many shows. In fact, it was their shared love for theatre that helped the two establish Prithvi Theatre in Bombay in 1978. © Trimurti Films Jennifer Kendal or Jennifer Kapoor is not a new or insignificant name in Bollywood. She has worked in some great movies like 'Bombay Talkie', 'Junoon' and '36 Chowringhee Lane'. The 1970 release 'Bombay Talkie' was one of the best films in which the two were together. This is the same movie that featured Amitabh Bachchan in a cameo. For those who don't know, the couple featured together in another movie called 'Shakespeare Wallah' which also starred Kendal's parents and her sister. According to India Today, in an autobiography on Shashi Kapoor by Aseem Chhabra, Sanjana Kapoor (their daughter) was quoted as, “When they were doing theatre (Shashi and Jennifer), they were poor. They were under-slept and underfed and my father would tell me how they would be tormented by hunger while strolling down the streets-both my parents trying to decide if they could get half a paratha. Then, they would walk past a restaurant and there would be my grandfather, Geoffrey Kendal, having a huge meal with a beer. My father couldn't walk in. He was his employee and he was also stealing his daughter. So there was no way he could march into the storm.” © Merchant Ivory Productions In 1982 Jennifer was diagnosed with colon cancer and succumbed to it in 1984. Jennifer's death was one of the major blows for Shashi Kapoor. In fact, the ones who are close to him feel that his health never recovered after she passed away. Jennifer's death broke Shashi Kapoor in ways that no one can understand. © Chaudhury Enterprises Amitabh Bachchan, who Shashi Kapoor fondly called 'Babbua' and shared a very close camaraderie with, said in his blog http://srbachchan.tumblr.com/, “He had been ailing…somewhere he had let himself go after the passing away of his dear wife Jennifer…I had visited him on occasion in Hospital during some of the times he had been hospitalised earlier...but I never went to see him again…I would never have…I never ever wanted to see this beautiful friend and 'samdhi' in the state I saw him in hospital.” © Twitter Shashi Kapoor loved Jennifer with all his heart and their love story will be remembered time and again in several years to come. Shashi Kapoor and Jennifer Kendal are survived by their children – Kunal Kapoor, Karan Kapoor and Sanjana Kapoor.
  24. There was a time when falling in love used to be easy. Back in the day, when we liked someone, we gathered up the courage and went and told them, risking rejection. Nowadays, all we do is sit behind our laptop and phone screens, right and left swipe our days away. Our reaction when we like or dislike someone is the same. The comfort of being behind our screens has come at the cost of heart-beating excitement. There was a time when falling in love used to be permanent. Back in the day, love was fulfilling, whole and long-term. We loved with every inch of our hearts, and didn't even care to always have one foot outside the door. Nowadays, love is fleeting, and rare. In fact, there are days when we don't even take the effort to label it as love. Ambiguity works fine, as does not making it “official”. There was also a time when love meant commitment. Back in the day, love meant focusing on one person, who you've promised to love and cherish. Love meant getting to know someone completely; their flaws, and their qualities. It meant loving them despite knowing everything. Today, love has been safely stored in the backseat of our lives, wrapped carefully lest someone takes a peek at our loveless lives. © Unsplash Falling in love now has been turned into an afterthought. We're hesitant to reveal our deepest secrets to one person, and have them know us better than we know ourselves. We're afraid to have someone take on our accumulated baggage through the years and love us in spite of it. Instead, we'd take the easy way out and choose dating apps over the effort needed to make a real connection. In fact, nowadays we don't even truly suffer heartbreak. We just stop talking to someone, instantly forget their existence, and focus all our attention on someone else. We act like it never really happened. There was a time when we fell in love. Now is a time when we shy away from even choosing love. So, what happened, and how did we even get here? As it turns out, the dating apps we love so much brought with it a curious case of dating fatigue. Perfectly suited to our low attention spans, and decreased ability to be vulnerable, dating apps made life perfectly simple, allowing us to swipe our worries away. Love became relegated to a supporting role once we let the hookup culture dictate our moves. Dating now is merely repeating the daily motions. We swipe without care, or any limit. We see someone, we like them, engage in some talk and then get down to business. Love is merely transactional at this point. The minute we start getting bored of a certain someone, or a specific situation, we'd move on to our next. It's a vicious cycle, but arguably one that provides instant gratification. © Unsplash We've let the habit of plowing through apps and people take control over us to such an extent that now we show visible symptoms of the dating fatigue. We're addicted to the nights of drunken frolic, adventure, and excitement that await us, so much so that we've completely discounted the comfort of staying in and doing some engaging activity with a special someone. A real relationship necessitates effort, the will to be willingly stuck with one person, and giving in to bursts of boredom and silence. Our dating fatigue makes us incapable of sharing ourselves completely with someone; so we make do with the short-term bursts of connections we meet on our apps. Except, they come with a catch. Once the days of making merry are over, we're left with practically nothing. No emotions, no memories to cherish, and certainly a hollow feeling of love. Until we find our next conquest, we end up being lonelier than ever, and even at our lowest, we shirk away from even thinking about giving in completely to something or someone else. In our denial of needing someone to hold us, to tell us about their day and listen to ours like it's the most important headlines of the day, we're unknowing making falling in love hard. Falling in love now isn't as simple as it used to be before. Existing in the age of dating apps means we're subscribers of “the more, the merrier” adage, which then restricts us from being absolutely head-over-heels in love with anyone. Only because we could be flirting with two people instead. Dating apps ensure that actuality, and we like love-hungry creatures, fall prey to its attractions. © Unsplash To really fall in love now would mean rejecting all the dating apps that want to sneak in their way into our phones, our minds, and our hearts, and trust completely. Trust ourselves with that person, trust the fact that they won't hurt us, and trust that love, and all its sacrifices are going to be worth it. That we may not always have those nights of drunken excitement, but when it comes to having someone help us nurse our hangover the day after, we'll never be alone. But, most importantly, to fall in love in this age where bragging rights trump any inestimable connection, we'll need to learn now not to ask for more, especially when we know we can have more. Falling in love means not asking for the buffet that's on display. It'll need us to forget the fun that awaits us, and focus on the happiness that companionship and commitment can bring us. And then too, there's another catch. We may want to fall in love, and give all of ourselves to one person, but will someone give up their life and their inherent commitment phobia to impart all of their selves to us, and vow to be happy within the limits we have? The question then is simple. Can we make falling in love easy again or will dating apps dictate the loveless futures we'll continue to lead? It's time we sit back and think about falling in love.
  25. Ted Mosby was not everyone's favourite and I'll tell you why. First, the amount of insane optimism this man carried was unhealthy. I mean, who can still be annoyingly positive after watching the girl you love going away with another man? Right? Second, his never ending hunt for 'the one'. At one point I am sure we all were like “just give up man”, but clearly Teddy Westside had no intentions of doing that. But the one thing that made everyone admire him was that, despite the rocks life threw at him, his views on love never became jaded. His belief about finding was so strong that it made some of us wonder, if we believe this strongly about something in our lives. Here are 10 quotes, which according to me, highlight his incredible belief and faith in the power of love. And trust me, we need it. Not necessarily in the love department, but other facets of life as well, where a little faith can do wonders. 1. “If you're not scared, you're not taking a chance and if you're not taking a chance, then what the hell are you doing?” © Pinterest We are all scared shitless when it comes to taking a leap of faith, not just when it comes to love, but life in general. Why some of us actually break our heads trying to figure out something new from a menu. Point is, the worst thing that can break you is regret, and the way to avoid that is taking chances. 2. “If you're looking for the word that means caring about someone beyond all rationality and wanting them to have everything they want no matter how much it destroys you, it's love. And when you love someone you don't stop, ever. Even when people roll their eyes, and call you crazy. Even then. Especially then.” © Pinterest This powerful quote speaks in volumes for itself. What makes goddamn sense is that we are all guilty of becoming vulnerable to the opinions of friends and society. But Ted says screw em' and march on! 3. “Shouldn't we hold out for the person who doesn't just tolerate our little quirks but actually kinda likes them?” Most of us keep saying “I'm ready to change for her if she wants,” but now when you read this quote, doesn't doing that seem just wrong? 4. “Love doesn't make sense! You can't logic your way into or out of it. Love is totally nonsensical. But we have to keep doing it or else we're lost and love is dead, and humanity should just pack it in. Because love is the best thing we do.” © popsugar This is a little difficult to swallow, at least for me, as I simply MUST find logic in everything. But I guess, we need to face harsh truths sometimes. 5. “You will be shocked, kids, when you discover how easy it is in life to part ways with people forever. That's why, when you find someone you want to keep around, you do something about it.” Raise your hands if you are guilty of cutting out people from your life and then instantly regretting it! 6. “If you love something, you can never let it go. Not even for a second. Or it's gone forever.” © Wikimedia commons It's so damn easy to say “let's end this” because it is the clear easy way out, right? But biting down the pride and ego and actually fighting to save your relationship is probably the hardest thing you can ever go through. 7. “I used to be in such a hurry all the time. Everything was so urgent. Now I figure, if it's going to happen, it'll happen when it happens. I'm not going anywhere; she's not going anywhere. What's the rush, right?” © Wikimeidia commons It's a good thing to be focused on searching for your soulmate, but that doesn't mean that life has to stop right? 8. “Sometimes things have to fall apart to make way for better things.” There is this song by Rascal Flatts called 'Broken Roads'. It has this one particular line which goes like “every long, lost dream led me to where you are. Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars pointing me on my way, into your loving arms.” (Beautiful, I know right?) Point is, losing someone you love can sometimes have a purpose. Maybe it teaches us how to be better in the future. Basically, some heartbreaks happen for a reason. 9. “Sometimes love means taking a step back. If you care about somebody, you should want them to be happy even if you wind up being left out.” I think this quote pretty much speaks for itself. I'm sure many of you out there have ended things just because she was not happy. Irrespective of how you felt, irrespective that at least you were happy in the relation, you let her go. That is nothing else but true love, my friend. 10. “People don't get the chance to discover each other anymore.” So true. Given the present times we are living in, it is very rare that people actually have the patience of digging deeper and peeling the layers of your partner to get to find a new facet to them. The joy of discovering someone comes only with time, but what is one supposed to do when they end up getting 'fed up' in just three months? Okay! So I know the headline says 10 quotes, but I just had to add this one. Just had to. His expression is just screaming of pure love!
