  1. It's time to tweak our travel plans, goals, bucket lists or whatever; basically strike out every other country on the map and head straight to Taiwan. Why? Because this island nation seems to be the only place that holds the key to the door of magical hotness. A post shared by é³ç¯æ (@n_nxd) on Oct 29, 2017 at 4:02am PDT Remember as kids we often joked that “An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but if the doctor is hot, keep the apple away!” Guess what, Taiwan's Ning Chen has resurrected that statement in every young man's heart. Young men who are now faking illness and queuing up in front of her clinic just to catch a glimpse of her. A post shared by é³ç¯æ (@n_nxd) on May 5, 2017 at 5:23am PDT Folks find someone who looks at you the way this dog is looking at Chen. 親ä¸å𤡠A post shared by é³ç¯æ (@n_nxd) on Oct 24, 2017 at 1:35am PDT People from across the globe have found their tooth fairy in Ning Chen, and if there's anyone who doesn't believe in tooth fairies, we are sure they will after they meeting her. Dubbed as the “sexiest dental nurse in the world”, 25-year-old Chen has taken the internet by storm and we can understand why people are going crazy about her. #太é½å¤ªå¤§ç¼ççä¸é #æåå±å±èèç· A post shared by é³ç¯æ (@n_nxd) on May 23, 2017 at 10:50am PDT The medical industry in Taiwan is booming right now, all thanks to the army of men lining up outside Chen's clinic begging her either for root canals or fillings. ä»å¤©ä¼åðððè¶ç·ç·´ç´ç·´ç´äºð¼ð¹ð¶ A post shared by é³ç¯æ (@n_nxd) on Apr 17, 2017 at 8:00pm PDT Earlier this year, she started working at Taichung-based dentistry chain Dr. Min and since then, many people have visited the clinic faking tooth aches just so they can talk to her. Well, like they say, “a man's got to do what a man's got to do.” åªåå¾åèµ° æé½åå°±æ¯å¸æ A post shared by é³ç¯æ (@n_nxd) on Sep 20, 2015 at 10:02am PDT Can you too feel the pain in your gums? You will once you see these pictures. 天氣éç®èæð A post shared by é³ç¯æ (@n_nxd) on Sep 16, 2015 at 4:12am PDT Reportedly, Chen was surprised when she came across her internet stardom, “I can't believe they say I'm the most beautiful dental nurse in the world. I'm so happy with all of the appreciation from people. I have a lot of gratitude for their love.” She further said, “It's funny for me. I enjoy the work, especially the teeth whitening.” æ°å¶æ亮ç¸ä¸ä¸ð A post shared by é³ç¯æ (@n_nxd) on Nov 20, 2017 at 11:02pm PST Thank god she doesn't work in the cardiac department; or else many people would have had trouble breathing properly. Well, as far as India is concerned, we'd rather eat that apple and stay at home, away from doctors instead of going for a root canal.
  2. 1. 'Dil Chahta Hai' Situation: Akshay Khanna slaps the crap out of Aamir Khan after the latter makes fun of him for being in love with an older woman. Significance: Nothing hurts more than your best buddy failing to support or at least understand your feelings. In this case, where Khanna was head over heels in love a woman twice his age, Khan mocking him and trying to talk him out of the whole thing was simply the last straw for him. Resulting in epic bitchslap! 2. 'Kal Ho Na Ho' Situation: Saif Ali Khan comes in his resplendent best, all set with flowers and music to tell Preity Zinta how deeply he loves her. But his heart is ripped from his chest and he is in visible pain when he finds out that she is in fact madly in love with his rambunctious friend- Shah Rukh Khan. Go figure. Significance: Oh this needs no elaboration! Unrequited love is like common cold but without a cure. One can only pray not to find themselves in poor Saif's shoes. 3. 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge' Situation: Poor Parmeet Sethi faced the embarrassment of a lifetime after his fiancée Kajol jumped onto the train to happiness with SRK, right in front of his family and friends (after getting beaten up black and blue on top of everything). He was not even the villain and he was meted such terrible treatment. Significance: Not everyone is Raj, nor does everyone want to be. But there are thousands of Kuljeets who are asked to swallow the bitter medicine just because they come across as the 'bad guys'. Hey! They have feelings too. 4. Devdas: Situation: A miserable SRK attends the wedding of his childhood sweetheart Aishwarya Rai. Poor bloke gives her away and even shoulders her palanquin. Significance: Those who have stood and watched helplessly as the woman they love began a new life with another man can relate to his pitiful situation. Of course, stumbling around drunk in grief and blind to the world is never recommended. 5. 'Raanjhanaa' Situation: Basically Dhanush in the entire movie. He literally dies trying to prove his love for a zombified Sonam Kapoor (who is already grieving for her dead Muslim lover). From being a stalker to a rickshawalla to also being mistaken for a beggar by college students! Boy, did he get the rough end of the deal. Significance: How far can you go for the one you love? It is a situation many of us have found ourselves in at some point. Finding ourselves charging full speed without brakes, all in an attempt to be at least visible to them can be exhausting. It is an interesting concept how the word “pride” suddenly loses all significance. 6. 'Student Of The Year' Situation: Varun Dhawan walks in on a horrific scene where his girlfriend Alia Bhatt and best friend Sidharth Malhotra are full on making out! No need to elaborate. Significance: Oh hell no! This is nothing but betrayal of the purest form. No wonder it took them 10 years to resolve the matter, which eventually ended in a public brawl with them punching the lights out of each other. Hurting your bro is evil enough, but making a move on his girl too? Honestly, getting hit is not enough punishment. 7. 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' Situation: Divyendu Sharma (Liquid) gets humiliated at work in front of his colleagues by the woman he has a massive crush on. Especially AFTER he helped her in the company, paid for her flat, accompanied her literally everywhere, even listened when she whined about her loser ex. Panorama Studios Significance: The moral of the story in this situation is pretty simple: Don't become a ch****a even when you fall in love. If you do not respect yourself, then please don't expect others to. 8. 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' Situation: “What goes around comes back around”. This quote is personified spectacularly by playboy Ranbir Kapoor, who after breaking the hearts of two women who were in love with him, gets a taste of his own medicine by the fiercely independent Deepika Padukone. Significance: There are some of us who just have to learn things the hard way. And that's when Karma steps in. Basically, being a jerk has its repercussions. 9. 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' Situation: Ranbir Kapoor is bonkers for the hopped-up-on-sugar-and-life Anushka Sharma. But she wants nothing more than friendship. He even ends up singing heartbroken at her wedding…which is followed by a tantrum where he repeatedly bangs his chest with a flower pot (yes, trying to show literal pain!) Significance: Friendzone is a bitch. It is the place where all hopes and dreams die. And if by God's miracle you do escape from that dark pit, please spread the knowledge to your bros. 10. 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' Situation: Poor Salman Khan! Finds out on his effing wedding day that his bride is in love with someone else. Lord knows how he let this humiliation slide by and handed over Kajol to SRK with a smile on his face. Significance: The art of learning to let go is what Sallu bhai taught us in this emotionally charged scene. However, not all of us actually have the strength to sing and dance with flair after getting stomped on the heart in public.
  3. Larry Wilmore at the Television Critics Association (TCA) Winter Press Tour in Pasadena, California, US, January 10, 2015. REUTERS/David McNew/Files Comedian Larry Wilmore recently spoke of the need for men ?doing better? with regard to women when it comes to sexual abuse and misconduct in every aspect of life. Wilmore, who was hosting the Hall of Fame induction event for the Television Academy in Los Angeles, addressed men in a very crisp and direct manner, cutting out excuses and indifference. ?I want to say, ?We have to do better, okay? We have to do it yesterday,'? he said, according to Variety, emphasizing on how it doesn?t just entail patiently sitting and reading tonnes of allegations unravel or saying ?these monsters are horrible?, but being ?woke allies?. The comedian-cum-writer then went on to explain what he meant by the ?woke? comment. ?Being a woke allies requires open eyes, active ears, a full heart, and a righteous resistance to a toxic patriarchal murmur that often we, as men, overlook or disregard, because we never get punished by it.? ?You don?t have to have a daughter, or a sister, or a wife to be empathetic to this cause. [?] We?re a group that tells stories ? that?s what we do, that?s what we give to the world: our stories. Now, it?s time for us to change our story.? Wilmore is known for his outspoken remarks, as well as his controversial speech at the White House Correspondents? Dinner back in April 2016 ? which the then-President Barack Obama ?appreciated?.

  5. What do tall men like Aditya Roy Kapoor have in common with a Varun Dhawan (for example)—a whole set of sartorial precautions. So clearly, contrary to your assumptions, they're not god-blessed humans in the literal sense. They too, can't get away with wrongdoing as right-doings in life. That said, besides being a genetically-blessed species (or maybe even not), most of them know the art of dressing for their body type. If they're tall, they keep a tailor by their bedside. And if short, don't subject themselves to odd apparel proportions. But that's them; they have a fleet of experts working on them. For men like us, saving for a latte everyday, we definitely need help. So, today, for men who're 6 feet or above in height, here are 7 moves that'll bring you menswear fortune everyday. © Instant Bollywood 1. Break Your Body Up As a lot of global, prolific tall dressers prove, there's a big gain in splitting your top and bottom half of the body. It's simple: by making someone look at your body as two different halves, you're creating distinct lines for the viewer's sight, eventually flattering your height by breaking it up. Masterful trick! © India 2. If You're Wearing The Suit, Go Double-Breasted As it is with God's rule of creating living beings, tall men are blessed with comparatively longer torsos. Result? They're unofficially, the luckiest mascots of the double-breasted suit. Besides adding bulk (in the right amount), they add a lot of definition to your body. And, all without making it appear wider and bigger—you don't want that. 3. If You're Tall But Thin Too, Layer Up. For some, things can really go south with oodles of weight. By piling on extra layers of fabric, we mean. But whatever said, guys who're tall needn't worry here at all. The idea is simple: layering brings along a lot of dimension, depth and focal points to your body, which distracts your viewer away from your height. You're tall, we geddit, no one needs to rub that in the face. © Instant Bollywood 4. Footwear Experiments Creating a point of interest with your choice in footwear is a great way of bringing someone's eyes to your feet. But that's a given. How does it help? Bro, c'mon: it'll help in ensuring you don't look abnormally tall, by keeping the attention on your body very grounded. Instead of a view from top to bottom, the viewer will look at your body from bottom to top—which is great. And on a side note, don't go too clown-y with your shoes anyway. 5. Doesn't Fit You Right? Grab A Tailor Unless your trial room drill is a little too strong or you lean towards bespoke tailoring daily, you need a tailor on speed dial. But this doesn't just apply to men who're tall. Everyone, literally every man on earth, needs to tailor their apparel to fit them right. There's nothing worse than clothes ruining your personality for you. Pay a few bucks, and get things altered! © Instant Bollywood 6. Shoulder Pads, Suspenders, Skinny Ties—No No If you're bulky and tall, you won't think of shoulder padding anyway. But if you're tall and thin, you might end up adding big pads to your jackets/suits. But don't—you don't want get labelled as a try-hard bulker. If nothing, do it in minimal amounts. Plus, since accessories like suspenders add length to your body, keep them at least a mile away. The same goes for skinny ties. 7. Stripes Can Be Tricky. However, Just Look Into The Mirror For Decisions One of the safest prints a man can try on himself, are checks or stripes. Talking of the latter, first off, tall guys should stay away from vertical stripes for sure (you know the reason). But we're not saying horizontal stripes are any good either. That said, that's something you can only ascertain in front of the mirror. So, simple: check yourself out, before you completely wreck yourself.
  6. Writer and show creator Matthew Weiner attends the 'Mad Men: Live Read & Series Finale' event in Los Angeles, US, May 17, 2015. REUTERS/Phil McCarten/Files Matthew Weiner ? the face behind famed TV series Mad Men ? has also been splattered with dirt now as the show's writer Kater Gordon recently levelled allegations of sexual harassment against him, marking yet another case of rich, powerful men using their authority and influence to silence victims of their ego. Gordon asserted that late one night, Weiner told her that she "owed it to him" to let him see her without clothes, following which she first ?froze and [then] tried to brush off? the comments by continuing to work without any further dialogue on the topic, The Information reported citing an interview with her. At that time, she could only consider it to be a ?lose-lose situation?, since taking up the issue with the showrunner would mean the ?end [of] her career?. On the other hand, it would be ?impossible to work with him? if she couldn?t confront him, she thought. ?I didn?t know then what my options were. Having a script or some sentences cued up as an arsenal ? like a self-defence harassment arsenal ? I could have used that in that moment, and it would have saved me years of regret that I didn?t handle that situation differently.? 'Does not remember' Weiner, in response, released a statement via a spokesperson. ?Mr. Weiner spent eight to ten hours a day writing dialogue aloud with Miss Gordon, who started on Mad Men as his writers assistant. He does not remember saying this comment nor does it reflect a comment he would say to any colleague,? the statement read, as per Fortune. Weiner ?has long believed in and implemented an egalitarian working environment including the highest levels of production and writing based on mutual respect for all?. Gordon was initially hired to work as Weiner?s personal assistant (PA), climbing to the position of writers? assistant and then staff writer, before being let go ? something that caused quite a stir in the media. She was 'subdued' According to the Hollywood Reporter, Weiner called Gordon a few weeks later, informing her that her contract would not be renewed for the fourth season. She claimed ?he told me I was terrible at everything, from my work in the writers' room to on set?. A source ? speaking on the condition of anonymity ? told The Information that Gordon was being "subdued", noting how clear it was that "something had changed." ?I could see her confidence was shaken.? Many questioned Man Men?s decision to let her go ? especially considering the fact that she was Weiner?s assistant for a long time and had won an award with him. Emmy with the abuser Gordon ? who says she was inspired to step up after the Weinstein scandal ? boosts an Emmy alongside her alleged abuser for "Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series" for the acclaimed show?s episode Meditations In An Emergency. ?I had the Emmy, but instead of being able to use that as a launch pad for the rest of my career, it became an anchor because I felt I had to answer to speculative stories in the press,? Gordon said. ?I eventually walked away instead of fighting back.? She is currently in process of creating Modern Alliance ? a non-profit organisation ? to help victims of sexual misconduct and harassment.
  7. Botox for balls. It's a shocker for many, but it looks like it grows on the men who are taking it up; why else would it even be a reality. Yes it is very much a reality, a simple "Scrotox" Google search would enlighten you how many men have taken up this fad. And with the men who are perfectly happy with their textured nether pearls, their women are pushing them to iron them out. © Thinkstock Europeans are a great fan of the procedure and it seems to be slowly but consistently moving westward to U.S.A, no intelligence on whether it's a thing in India yet, but then our gentry is hush about "down there" for most things, so it would be tough to get them to talk. Lucky for us, though, we had a chance to talk to a few Indian men on what they feel about injecting botox in their scrotum to make it look smoother and bigger. Here's what they had to say... oh and we also got the opinion of some ladies on whether they would like their men to green signal Scrotox... let's just say that this may be a predictable but fun story with some hilarious responses: Gents, would you get Scrotox to make your balls look bigger and smoother? Aman, 31 I can't believe that something like that even exists. Depends on how small they are. If they are really tiny (mine aren't), abnormal size, then yes one could and should go for it. © Thinkstock Arnav, 29 Umm, that has to be the strangest question I have encountered on any morning, but the answer is no. I like my balls as they are, and whoever has to deal with them, should too. Akhyil, 28 I would never get Botox on my balls to make them bigger because I don't dip balls in *****. The only purpose my balls have is to make semen and produce testosterone and they do their job perfectly. So no I don't need Scrotox. Big balls are decided by your heart and not Botox. Dishant, 28 I'm pretty happy with my balls. I don't think my balls need botox at this stage in my life. Maybe after 15-20 years. Sean, 28 My balls are beautiful. Don't need botox. Nishank, 29 Nobody complained. I am perfect. No is the answer. © Thinkstock Vikram, 27 Absolutely. Who doesn't want big round shiny balls? I'm kidding. I never even knew something like this even existed. But yeah, no... I doubt I'd be interested. Rahul, 29 No. Guys don't care about balls as much. A clean yard is all we yearn for. Ryan, 30 Smooth and big balls? Why would I want my balls turning into boobs? That's messed up! I like my balls the way they are. Anonymous, 27 I don't prefer implants. Neither in women, nor myself. Amit, 35 Never! The way they are is natural and beautiful. © Thinkstock Ladies, if our man could get botox for his balls to make them smoother and look bigger, would you urge them to get it? Prachi, 30 No because I have a feeling that smooth balls would feel more like boobs and less like balls. Sunaina, 32 I am against anything unnatural. I am okay with average sized balls. Dessidre, 27 No no no. I like them as they are. Botox on balls and I'll never want to give head again. Anonymous, 30 It's a chemical procedure that may or may not have long term side effects. Don't want to find out. Anonymous, 29 Question is absolutely hilarious. No, because I like it au-naturel. Botox is trying too hard. © Thinkstock Aasia, 28 No, I don't think so because I don't even know what good it'll do. I'm not ball obsessed. Anonymous, 28 Probably yes, if the balls get bigger, yes. Samreen, 28 Is that really a thing? No, I won't. He should accept me the way I am and I will accept him the way he is. However, if he wants me to change for him, then I want to have fun too.
  8. Blame it on stupid, world-renowned myths or theories—men with dark skin overthink before dressing. As a result, waste a lot of time (hence, end up running late) and sometimes, even arrive upon absolutely wrong results. Truth of the matter is, there's a whole bunch of 'em who're unsure of 'what to wear'. Especially when it comes to romping with the colour wheel. But however happier this makes you now, we're here to solve the mystery for you. If you're anyway close to the Indian skin tone or in convention, a little dark (or more than little)—here are 5 colour combos that'll seal the deal for you. 1. Mustard + White Facebook/Dev Patel For starters, come what may, know that you can't appear darker than what you already are (hope you agree). So, to cut the story shorter: the combo of a warm colour like mustard + neutrals like white (or grey/black too) will do exactly that for you. That said, feel free to add pop colour accents in the form of accessories. 2. Maroon + Black ©Nappa Valley Film Festival Rule 1 of appropriate-dressing for dark skin tones is to avoid visual contrast. Unless of course, that's the look you're eyeing. Hence, another great route to turn to is a dark shade + black. While the primary-black will set base for your outfit (without disturbing your skin tone), a dark (but warm) colour like maroon will brighten it up, without creating contrast. Easy swipe. 3. Pink + Grey ©Giorgio Armani In general, pastel/sorbet colours radiate a natural glow on any skin tone. That's exactly what hues of pink will do for you. Keep it's pairing neutral with a tried-and-tested safe bet (such as grey). And regardless of how dark you are, this marriage will take you a long mile. 4. Black + White ©Times Of India Whatever said and done, there's nothing replacing the sanctity of B&W. While it's best to pair to anything stark with classic neutrals, pitting a neutral with a neutral is an even better bet. Safe, dapper and will always come handy. 5. Blue + More Blues ©Just Jared Before it's too late, fact: cool colours are absolute goldmine for dark skin tones. And when topped off with another version of a cool colour, there's no looking back. Dev Patel might be looking like a homeless wreck here, but on any given day, blue (in your favourite hue for any goddamn day) will babysit your skin into looking it's best. In fact, you might just appear more radiant, you see.
  9. The funeral motorcade of the five Argentine citizens ? who were killed in the truck attack in New York on October 31 ? passes by as mounted policemen salute in Buenos Aires, Argentina, November 6, 2017. REUTERS/Marcos Brindicci BUENOS AIRES: The bodies of five Argentine men killed in a truck attack in New York City last week arrived at their hometown of Rosario on Monday. A police escort accompanied the bodies of the men as they were transported from Buenos Aires Ezeiza International Airport in a motorcade to Rosario ? Argentina?s third-largest city. Other officers on horseback saluted as the cars carrying the victims passed through the streets of Buenos Aires early in the morning. The motorcade reached a funeral home in Rosario several hours later. The victims are Hernán Ferruchi, Diego Enrique Angelini, Hernán Diego Mendoza, and Ariel Erlij, all 48, and Alejandro Damián Pagnucco, 49. The five ? who were businessmen or architects ? were among eight people killed on Tuesday in the truck attack as they rode bicycles on a pedestrian path in Lower Manhattan along the Hudson River. The Argentines were part of a group of 10 friends who had travelled to New York to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their high school graduation. Uzbek immigrant Sayfullo Saipov, 29, was charged in a federal court on Wednesday with driving the truck down the bike trail, crushing pedestrians and cyclists, in support of Daesh. Argentine President Mauricio Macri and first lady Juliana Awada joined New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio at the site of the attack on Monday, where they laid flowers and paid tribute to the victims. ?Terrorism does not distinguish or limit countries, nor nationalities,? Macri said. ?Argentines confirm that we want to be part of this battle, that we all have to give in this world to coexist in peace and with love.? Macri is in New York for a previously planned trip to meet with investors and business executives. De Blasio said the five Argentines? visit to New York was an affirmation about all that is good about life. ?We live 5,000 miles apart, but we feel a tremendous sense of unity and a deep connection right now,? De Blasio said. Rosario mourned for three days after the deadly attack. The victims? high school ? where administrators said lifelong friendships are common among students ? is counselling students and observing a weeklong mourning period. ?Friendship moves the world,? said 65-year-old Rosario resident Adriana Sorzoli, ?and I am very sad.?
  10. A friend recently lamented about how Indian women never make the first move. The said friend had been on Tinder long enough to grow his beard twice. His problem was not a lack of matches—his dedicated fitness routine, MNC salary and maa ka pyaar has made sure he is a good-looking Mr Darcy in the Indian dating scene. But despite being swiped right by the handful of girls who do swipe right on Tinder, he was single and flustered. “They never initiate the conversation, man. I'm tired of thinking of creative ways to say hi,” he quipped. “This is even worse than coming up with pick-up lines in a club. At least, you don't have to wait two days for a reply.” It got me thinking. It's a given, agreed—women don't often initiate the conversation. Is it a power trip, an ego boost that has been fed into our idea of romance where the lady is to be wooed before she finally relents? Will the men get confused about which role to play if women were to play the pursuer? © Thinkstock Photos What if we took charge and pursued the men we like? Many of us are already there. I, for one, have often been forthcoming about my likes and intentions. You ask any twenty-something independent young girl and surely, she has at least once gone out with her heart on her sleeve. And how has that worked out? Most of the times, poorly. On more than one occasion, the gentleman in question—even though thrilled at the prospect of being an object of affection—has retreated in haste and confusion. Considering how rare it is for women to propose to men, we can forgive the initial shock and silence. Modern men today, however, don't mind being asked out for a change; many confess they find it incredibly impressive if the woman makes the first move. Kanwar Sodhi, a digital media professional, says, “I'd love it if a woman came up to me and told me she likes me. It shows forthrightness and a no-nonsense attitude.” © Thinkstock Photos But somehow it still isn't working out. While most men are ecstatic at the idea of being coveted, they are not always sure how to deal with it. The concept of chase is so intrinsically rooted in dating, especially in India, that without it, the end goal seems meaningless. When a woman confesses her desire and denies the said man (of course, we aren't talking about all men here so please leave that conversation for another rainy day) a chase, she takes away from him the thrill of winning. Manish, 27, says, “I would personally love it if a woman confesses her love for me, considering I don't get much female attention. But I know some of my friends wouldn't be cool with it..” Kanwar agrees, “I too have a few friends like that. Men enjoy the chase but when a girl approaches them they feel their hands are off the steering.” The power trip is right here. Admit it or not, most men love the chase. Desire, chase and achievement – winning a woman over is often sweeter than the woman herself. The knowledge that a woman likes them will give them instant gratification but the same knowledge can also lead to fizzling out of desire, because there's no chase to heighten it. © Thinkstock Photos It's human tendency to want that which is forbidden and seemingly out of bounds. We often measure the worth of something by the ease of obtaining it. Women playing hard to get and men working hard to get them is what has come out of it. And it has benefitted no one. When something is offered to you without a struggle, you fail to realise its worth. A senior once confessed he'd lose interest if a woman came up to him and told him she liked him. “We all want to date someone better than us, someone we think is just a little out of our league. If she has so easily fallen for me, I'd be compelled to think I can do better.” If you did not have to work hard for something, surely it must be an easy catch? Am I too good for her? Why would she ask me out otherwise? © Thinkstock Photos "It's not that I have anything against a woman asking me out, I mean it's cool and everything. But somehow it plants a seed in my head that she's a little...desperate. I know, it's stupid but it's the first thing that pops into my head. Why is she asking me? How many guys has she asked before me? Why have others rejected her? What if I say yes & THEN find out the reason? It's super embarrassing, please change my name!" says Kevin*, a 33-year-old musician living in Delhi. And that's a prejudice a lot of men harbor. When a woman asks them out, they are often quick to judge her as a bit too desperate. Why did she need to ask a man out? Did she not have enough male attention in her life? Is there something wrong with her? © Thinkstock Photos When a woman takes the first step forward and proposes to a guy, does it question his manliness? Does it take away from him the power of carving out his path? He is not getting to choose and win his choice; he is being won over. "I have never been asked out by a woman, but I can't help but think that I would be kinda uncomfortable. Not with her of course! But myself. I mean...I'm a man and part of what makes me a man is finding my woman myself. No one has ever told me what to do if she finds me first!" says 27-year-old Harish. © Thinkstock Photos Sure, there are men who have evolved beyond this and are perfectly comfortable being asked out. They don't have time for mind games and are glad their chase is cut short for them by the woman. The end goal matters to them, not the challenges in the way. They are playing the game to win, not to enjoy an ego boost from crossing levels, like in a video game. But the evolution of a dating culture that has made women into trophies to be won will happen in due course of time. Men are open to the idea of being asked out, but they are still clueless how to deal with it. Blame it on our residual ideologies. Not just Indian men, but women too need to get more comfortable with the idea of discarding the roles of the pursued and the pursuer in dating. *Some names have been changed to maintain anonymity.
  11. We are all privy to the latest dating trends now that are defining relationships a bit more strategically. And now, along with these trends, there is a rise of emerging class of internet predators, who seek attention through fabricating information and scamming their way into online romantic relationships. We're not kidding! And if you haven't been a target yet, you're really lucky! This trend is commonly known as 'catfishing' and it's what's been breaking hearts for a while now. Catfishers usually target the meek and vulnerable and those who have gullible traits. There are various degrees of being catfished and there isn't really a marker on how far an internet impostor will go to catfish you, to have his or her fun! It could be a light, breezy white lie or someone who promises you a future and completely disappears. Picture this: You meet this beautiful girl online on a dating site. You two really hit it off and start chatting. Chatting turns to deciding to meet on a date. You guys go out, have a wonderful evening, She opens up to you about her family, her past and everything else she wants in the future. You guys start to like each other and start spending a considerable amount of time together. Then you date and things start to become serious. You talk about a probable future and she's already talking about introducing you to her parents and you can't wait! And one day, she disappears. No phone calls, no texts, no sign of her! You are left wondering what happened and before you know it, you find out somehow, she's married! That my friend is the classic, brutal way to catfish someone. Well, most cases are not so extreme. Sometimes fibbing online to get attention from the opposite *** is also catfishing. It may seem harmless but it's posing as someone you really aren't at the end of the day. We took the liberty to ask a few men about their online dating experiences and if they were ever catfished by someone and majority of the men had ACTUAL experiences with catfishers! Here's what they had to say. 1. The 'Already Taken' I met someone on Tinder who was single. We hit it off and started chatting and I really enjoyed our conversations till I asked a common friend about her, who told me she was married! I was lucky to have found out right then and there. - Anonymous, 30 (c)Giphy 2. The 'I Don't Eat Meat' Variety This girl I met on tinder was all about 'loving animals' and she said she was a complete dog person. She even had a selfie with a dog, who I assumed was hers. When we eventually met, I figured she was actually scared of dogs. I have three dogs at home and she refused to enter my house. So much for 'loving animals'! She obviously lied. - Karan, 30 (c)Giphy 3. The 'I don't Really Exist' Girl This girl I met on a dating site was damn pretty and I kept thinking how lucky I am to be swiped right by her. We had some real conversations too. We would talk about our interests and I kept thinking how such a pretty girl is still single. So I did some research to calm my brain down. So I Google searched her pictures and it turned out that there were a few more profiles with this girls picture on it, which obviously meant she was using someone else's picture. I confronted her about the same and she unmatched me! - Mayank, 23 (c)Giphy 4. The 'Sympathy Seeker' I was once talking to this girl online who used to gain sympathy from men by telling them she lost her last boyfriend to a car crash. I fell for her act too. She would tell them how deplorable her living conditions are and she's financially unstable and she got men to actually pay for her bills and shopping etc. All that was obviously a farce and she was just pulling a fast one to get attention and money! - Gagan, 33 (c)Giphy 5. The'Idenity Theif' I have never been a victim of catfishing but I knew some guy in college who used to fake being a woman to talk to other women, on social media. I think he needed help! - Rohit, 26 (c)Giphy 6. The 'Fake Vixen' I met this girl on Tinder who was all out there with her sexuality. She posted pictures which indicated that she's on tinder just for *** and wanted to obviously give out that mysterious 'sexy' girl vibe. I fell for it obviously. She was playing hard to get from the get go and it took me a long time to agree on meeting up. I obviously wanted to just hook up. Turns out, not only was the woman very prudish where *** was concerned but she turned out to be a virgin too! She was just creating a wrong image about herself on Tinder all this while and I can't still figure why! - Anonymous, 27 (c)Giphy 7. The 'Identity Crisis' Girl I met this woman on Tinder who was an airhostess. I've always wanted to hook up with one so I started chatting her up. She used to keep stalling me telling me she's flying out and won't be back a while etc. and I would obviously believe her. A few weeks into meeting her, my company was doing a CSR programme with this NGO and it turned out this woman was the programme officer with the NGO! I was a bit taken aback. I mean, I would love to hook up with an NGO worker too! I don't know why she lied! - Gaurav, 32 (c)Giphy There are obviously many more men who get catfished by women everyday. We still haven't come across a major catfish debauchery yet but even these small fabrications count! Well, it's not just women who catfish, men do it too but women usually lie about their profession, marital status, sexual inclinations etc on online dating sites and men obviously fall for it. Make sure you have all the facts in hand before you take the next step with a probable catfisher! If you've been catfished, do tell us about it in the comment section and before you know it, we'll be back with 'how you can avoid being catfished'! Watch this space.
  12. Some couples give us relationship goals and the story of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma is one of those. From being a victim of online trolls to being blamed for a bad performance in a game, Virat and Anushka have faced a lot of problems since they started dating each other. But when two people love and believe in each other, these things makes no difference. Despite being criticised time and again, the duo has grown with each other and has each other's back. Much needed break with my ⤠A post shared by Virat Kohli (@virat.kohli) on Jul 12, 2017 at 8:56am PDT Virat Kholi has never stopped himself from expressing his feelings for his lady love. He admires her and never shies away when showing it to the entire world. During a recent episode of 'Breakfast With Champions', Virat went all gaga over his lady, giving us yet another relationship goal. Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli's new Add @anushkasharma @virat.kohli #anushkavirat #anushkasharma #viratkohli #anushkasharmafans #anushkasharmafc #viratkohliclub #viratkohli18 A post shared by ABIG FILMPRO (@abigfilms) on Oct 28, 2017 at 8:34am PDT When told that he is such a gentleman, the Indian Cricket Team Captain just smiled and gave all the credit to his girl for making him who he is today. Now isn't that really cute of him? “Sir, it's the magic of my lady luck. I didn't have any senses before, but ever since the lady has come into my life, she has taught me a lot of things. So I have grown better in the last four years. My intelligence has grown in these years with her. She has taught me manners, kept me calm. Also, she taught me how to utilize your potential to the fullest at whatever point you are in your life." Talking more about Anushka Sharma he said, "When I was in my bad phase, my flip in my attitude has come because of her and her alone. At that time she understood what I was going through. She kept me motivated. As support, she helped me push through. She was a constant, standing by like a rock. Then when I started doing well, she was still there by my side. It was a special thing for both of us because she too faced a lot of flak during that time. People started saying that in that bad phase that 'these young players just want to enjoy'. So just because these people don't want to, I shouldn't be in a relationship. How absurd is that?" With time, despite all the problems, we have seen the two growing individually in their respective fields and also with each other. Looking at two we can't help but learn few relationship mantras to keep going.
  13. A worker installs parts for the new Chevrolet Cruze car as it moves along the assembly line at the General Motors Cruze assembly plant in Lordstown, Ohio, July 22, 2011. REUTERS LONDON: Women will have to wait 217 years before they earn as much as men and have equal representation in the workplace, research said, revealing the widest gap in almost a decade. Women are paid and achieve just over half as much as men in the workplace, the World Economic Forum said, reporting an economic gap of 58 percent between the sexes. ?In 2017 we should not be seeing progress toward gender parity shift into reverse,? said Saadia Zahidi, WEF?s head of education, gender and work. ?Gender equality is both a moral and economic imperative. Some countries understand this and they are now seeing dividends from the proactive measures they have taken to address their gender gaps.? It is the second year in a row that the Swiss non-profit has recorded worsening economic inequality, which is calculated by measuring how many men and women participate in the labor force, their earned incomes and their job advancement. Last year, WEF said women would achieve economic equality in 170 years, down from 118 years in 2015. No country has closed the pay gap, WEF said, using data from institutions such as the International Labour Organization, United Nations Development Programme and World Health Organization. Overall, Iceland, Norway, Finland, Rwanda and Sweden ranked highest among 144 nations measured on progress in equality in four areas: education, health and survival, economic opportunity and political empowerment. Yemen, then Pakistan, Syria, Chad and Iran, ranked lowest. Women fared much better in education, where equality could be reached within 13 years, WEF said, while closing the gap in political empowerment could take a further 99 years. ?Even though qualified women are coming out of the education system, many industries are failing to hire, retain and promote them, losing out on a wealth of capacity,? it said. The report estimated that closing the pay gap could add an extra $250 billion to the GDP of Britain, $1,750 billion to that of the US and $2.5 trillion to China?s GDP.
  14. A lawyer who moonlights as an hotelier; IIT grads pursuing their love for the arts; a global training head exploring life as a tattoo artist; the idea of settling down with a stable job does not hold the same appeal as it did in the 80s or 90s. We are in the midst of a cultural shift where men today are better equipped and open to take up alternative career paths. It's a cultural shift not many millennials could've imagined at the turn of the century but here we are – living in a society where a man is defined, not by the salary he pockets but the impact of his ideas. Let's be real and call the mundane 9-5 routine what it really is – the mirror of mediocrity. And so, the modern Indian man neither cares for it nor does he want to be associated with it. He's pretty comfortable in pursuing what his heart desires and therefore makes his own path, no matter if it's an outlier in the collective wisdom of society. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Take for example eminent policy lawyer, poet and writer Sumant Batra who set up a boutique hotel in the Himalayas. His summer house 'Te Aroha' serves a blend of traditional architecture and contemporary comforts to his guests, something that many people in the city crave for. “Live your dream. Life in small towns can be blissful as long as you are able to break away from the shackles of the stereotypical life of the cities,” says Sumant. And he's right. A job or a profession without a broader sense of purpose is just too routine and wasteful. The millennial generation understands that and is therefore not inclined to live a life that's machined akin to checking the boxes and moving onto someone else's idea of a good life, just for the sake of peer validation. And it's not just financially secure middle-aged men kicking the bucket of conventional roles. It's the idea of the young Indian male taking the plunge into the unknown that excites, and paves the way for kids not wanting to waste four years of their lives in an engineering college dorm only to realise later that it's not really meant for them. Devendra Purbiya, an IIT graduate, is one such soul of that ilk. On a trip to South Korea he discovered his love for photography while capturing his trip on a DSLR. He took his hobby to another level and started 'A Photo a Day' project on Facebook. Navigating a new career with zero experience is never easy but he stuck with it and today Purbiya is one of the most sought after wedding photographers in the country. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Nobody disputes that new age men are more confident of putting themselves out into the real world and being vulnerable. That confidence however, no matter the opportunities, is a product of the digital age where there's no dearth of platforms to showcase what they are capable of. Even then, breaking the mould takes courage, something that's evident in the stand-up culture today. Zakir Khan, one of the better known stand-up comedians in India at the moment, started small. His sketches were funny and content, original. Yet, it took some work before he could really make it big in the mainstream stand-up scene. Khan first got in touch with me back in 2015 when he was just coming up and getting recognized for his first few sketches. At that time, getting noticed by big digital publications was difficult because written content, rather than videos, was king. In various conversations from 2015 through 2016, Zakir persisted and asked for help in featuring his videos. At a time when stand-up comedy couldn't have been considered a full-time job, Zakir made sure that major publications at least noticed his work, even if they decided to never feature it. The audacity with which he owned his content in an industry that was still in its nascent stages shows how new age men are not only unafraid of their bold career choices but sometimes, like Zakir Khan, they can break new grounds and introduce a whole new audience to the industry. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Congruent career trajectories are a thing of the past and we, the modern Indian men are aware of our capabilities. The biggest resource for the new age man to be successful is his own passion of carving a niche of his own. Be it sculpting a piece of art or running an ink shop, the cubicle is no longer my workstation and I'm not scared of it anymore.
  15. Lounging on the couch, with a cup of coffee in your hand, if you've ever dreamt of becoming good-looking in an instant, let's burst your bubble—that's impossible. Because in one single word, 'neglect' isn't acceptable in men's grooming. The sunlight was streaming all over the couch (but you were without SPF-protection), you don't sleep well (because clearly, having coffee is more important) and hence, those bags under your eyes; all these habits are more harmful for your face than polythene bags for the globe. The problem is, most of us neglect certain aspects about grooming. And no, we're not referring to shower gels, face washes or shampoos/conditioners. Think night creams, nose/ear trimmers and other such products that gather dust in life. Remember: there's a reason why David Beckham looks like himself (even at 42), and not like a tobacco-chewing wrinkly dimwit. Nevertheless, it's never too late, tick off every grooming product below for some brownie points in life. 1. Face Serum © NNNOW Most men would be hearing these words for the very first time. Why? Because, men. Back to the point, face serums are a major boon for your skin. They're much lighter than moisturisers and drown deep in your skin to eliminate issues like dry skin, dark spots or visible fatigue. As per your skin problem, pick a product. 2. Night Cream © Kiehls You have a rule of washing your face before sleeping. Now, make another one: of using a night cream right before crashing. Unlike all the crap your skin goes through in the day, it gets some respite while you're happily snoring. Using a product that relaxes your skin (while it's already in hibernation mode) doubles the effect for its extended life. 3. Nose/Ear Trimmer © Braun You can dress well, smell great and even bed well, but with pesky strands up your nose/ears, you'll probably not even reach #3. So, do yourself a favour and snip those obnoxious strands. Just invest in a dual trimmer like one from Braun and drive right into a trim. 4. Hand Cream © Kama Ayurveda As opposed to your everyday face moisturiser, hand creams target the skin around your joints, knuckles or any dry spots that appear out of nowhere because of daily struggles. This is exactly why your hand needs a hand cream, and not just a moisturiser. Stop the neglect and invest in one today. 5. Under Eye Gel/Cream © Kaya When it comes to puffiness/dark circles, you need one single product to put things in place. Under-eye creams/gels with ingredients such as caffeine or vitamin K keep your blood vessels under the eyes in check and kick dark circles off your life. Point being, drop some cash on one.
  16. If there ever was a 'who gives the best orgasm' contest, guess who'd be the winner? No, not Mr. 'I have three Audi's and a bungalow in Karol Bagh' or Mr. 'I think Nietzsche was the shit', or even Mr. 'I am going for a protest to ban soaps because they're hazardous to the environment, won't you join me'? According to a new study carried out by Socioaffective Neuroscience & Psychology the winner for the 'who gives the best orgasm' goes to *drum roll* Mr. 'funny guy'. Yep. If you're the funny one and your woman seems to thinks so too, then you're very capable of giving her some of the most intense and best orgasms of her life! What? Science says so! In any case, women love a guy with a good sense of humour. Ask any woman what her ideal guy should or would be like and 'a good sense of humour' would top her list. Of course we're not negating the looks and the hot bod. But when it comes to making her see seventh heaven, the humorous guy is the winner hands down. So How Does This Work? The study that was conducted to reach this conclusion featured 103 single women, who were asked a series of question about their *** lives, how often they orgasm and the kinda guys they're into or would like to take to bed. This Is What The Results Showed “How often women experienced orgasm as a result of sexual intercourse was related to their partner's income, self-confidence, and how attractive he was. Orgasm intensity was also related to how attracted they were to their partners.” So in other words men who had a lot of greens in their bank accounts, who were super hot and confident gave women the best orgasms. Women who also rated their partners to be attractive also had the most intense orgasm with them. I mean, let's face it, women are shallow and looks do matter to get us off! The study revealed these superficial indicators of the type of men who give women the best orgasms. (Good looks and money being the primary quotient). Like seriously, if you look at this objectively, Hrithik Roshan can really make panties drop, literally, but what he is from the inside counts more. Women do rely on emotional factors as well. So The Conclusion Was Finally according to the study, while keeping the looks and confidence factor in mind, a bangin' sense of humour in a guy was the sexiest personality trait, which led woman to the most intense orgasms of their life. So according to how funny a guy is, it can definitely predict the “propensity to initiate ***, how often they had ***, and it enhanced their orgasm frequency in comparison to other partners.” In fact, having a great sense of humour was rated higher than physical appearance and the rich factor put together. Something to think about, right? So all in all, it doesn't really matter if you are a 'nice guy' or a 'sensitive guy' or even a 'bad boy'. Your *** appeal will always be your sense of humour. So at the end of the day, if you can make her laugh, she's in for a hell of a ride. Brownie points, if you're hot and rich! The study also revealed that men with these six characteristics usually rock the world of women harder than usual: (1) Humour (2) Attractiveness (3) Creativity (4) Emotional Warmth (5) Faithfulness (6) Body Odour Pleasantness While, you can work around the body odor pleasantness and keep a check on 'how not to smell like a garbage dump', you should definitely work on ways to make women laugh. So to conclude this result, if you work hard on making women laugh, crack a few jokes, make some witty jibes every now and then, you're definitely going to be the sexy orgasm boy for her. In the end it's on you to invite her to your party and make sure she cums (pun intended!).
  17. Long hair or (really) long hair, both call for something called as 'innovation'. Not in hair colour, through a haircut or while resting on your pillow—we're referring to creativity/evolution in styling them daily. Because to be frank, hair falling flat on the shoulders is a gateway to suicide. But wait, we've brought in Ranveer Singh to your rescue. If your strands are as long as our list of Mr. Singh's A-list grooming moves, here's how to style your shoulder-length mane, just like him. 1. For starters, stick to a side-parted mane. But, a little messy on the side and combed over in the front. Just ensure the hair's off your face, not falling all over. © Instagram/Ranveer Singh 2. As we said, just plain off your face is Rule 1. This is exactly that—blow dried backwards and resting behind your ears. © Biz Asia 3. This could be similar to #1, but you'd the notice the big difference here—there's no parting line involved. Keep it a little messy here, but don't go overboard. © Instagram/Ranveer Singh 4. Center part them, man. That's all. And whether you flaunt curls or straight hair, keep them behind your ears. Neatness is needed! © Adidas 5. This requires intense blow drying, good amount of settling spray, quite a bit of pomade and well, pro hands. So, if you have time in your hands, this is how to make your long hair...not appear very long. © Carrera 6. This is self explanatory—they have been flattened out, are cleaning up his rather-unkempt handlebar and there's usage of wax over pomade here. © Stardust 7.

  19. Hairy men, we're praying for you: may you not cut yourself, pop ingrown hair, leave an area unshaved or shave against the grain. May you always, forever have a smooth shaving experience. But think about it: why are we even at the temple wishing for you? You've been shaving since 16, why haven't you mastered it yet? Maybe because you're lazy or because, no one ever corrected what you've been doing all wrong. Well, now...it's time to save us a prayer! Come tomorrow, promise yourself to avoid these 15 common shaving errors and thwart any possible threats to your skin... © Thinkstock/Getty Images 1. Chills, Before A Shave. There's a lot that's wrong with splashing chilled eh-two-o on your skin before shaving. It reduces your pores to a minuscule size, resulting in troubled penetration for the shaving cream and hence, a tough time for the razor. So, here's what's to do: soften your stubble/beard first. Use warm water to clean your face or if nothing, use a warm towel or steam bath as alternatives. Point being, more the heat, smoother the shave. 2. Skipping 1, 2, 3 and Pre-Shave Products. No experience in the world has ever been smooth AF, without some active preparedness involved. Point being, you need to prep your skin for the strike of the razor. Massage a pre-shave oil/gel bought off a drug store into your skin pre-shave, let it rest for a few minutes and only then, hit it. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 3. Sprinting Right In. Don't rush it. Nothing ever came out of a random quickie, you see—not even a goddamn relationship. A good, healthy shave takes up to 6 minutes (of course, depends upon your hair length too). Sprinting through a shave will only result in cuts, burns and irritation for days. 4. Gliding Against The Grain. To avoid cuts, burns, irritation or ingrown hair—see to it that you're shaving in the direction of your hair growth (AKA in the same flow as the grain). To figure out your grain: using a finger, start with stroking your face strands in one direction and then, move in the opposite direction. The side that'll feel rougher is 'against the grain' and the other one, 'with the grain'. Fact: Pro-shavers move along the grain! Simply because, there's lesser resistance and surface tension there. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 5. Applying Your Might To Shave. If you're hitting the gym to get better at shaving, get your IQ checked. When it comes to the razor working it's magic, lesser the pressure, the better. Takeaway: use a light touch while shaving. Don't press hard on the razor. 6. Shaving Way Too High. Sideburns. Care about sideburns. Think of them as extinct species, and ensure they co-exist with your beard in the picture. Don't shave so high that you slit your sidies through. No matter what, they need to the bridges connecting your beard to your mane and as per personal preference, should ideally end a length falling right in the center of your ears. 7. And, Way Too Low. There's a face. Then a neck. And then the decision of shaving all over. If you're trimming, you'd minimise the overall length and call it a day. But if you're going for a clean shave, you rather stress on the neck area and corresponding pathways too. Take a step down and shave every low-lying area in the vicinity of your face. Don't make your shave look like a half-hearted job! © Thinkstock/Getty Images 8. Running Out Of Patience With The Shaving Cream. Shaving creams (the good ones, we mean) exist for a reason. To moisturise, soften all your strands/stubs, and facilitate a very cease-free shaving experience. But give it time. Don't apply it at 4:05 PM and start shaving at 4:06 PM. Lend it a few minutes—let it sink into your skin and prove it's metal. 9. Annoying The Razor To The Brim. If not everyone, most of us are into disposable razors in life. 1) Because they're cheap and 2) of course, because they're easy to dispose off. But if this situation doesn't seem familiar to you, and you use re-usable razors instead, keep their saturation point in mind. Most multi-blade Indian razors have a life of up to 10-12 shaves. Dispose them post that! Don't overuse your razor, unless you're all game for nicks. 10. Aftershave? What's That? Your skin needs protection post a shave. How to offer that: with an aftershave. Besides the innumerable reasons why you should be using an after shave often, don't forget to use it at all first. Most of us forget and that's not cool. Re-hydrate your skin post the shave (you just subjected it to a sharp razor) and believe us, it'll pay you back in the long run. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 11. Boozing, Post The Shave. While using an aftershave is easy, choosing the right one is imperative too. Most of the post-shave products available in the market are alcohol-based and hence, aren't great bets. Although, the tingling after applying it is all fun and frolic, it rips your skin off all the hydration; leaving it dry and useless. So instead of a two-minute joy ride of an alcohol-based aftershave, invest in a moisturising balm with natural ingredients like shea butter or aloe vera. 12. Post-Shave Scrubs. Using a face scrub is great. In fact, it's great for preparing your skin for a shave. However, refrain from using it post. Your skin gets a little tender post all the harsh blade-action and you don't want skin irritation ruining the day for you. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 13. Using The Razor Without A Shaving Cream. As we said, there's a reason why shaving creams exist. Besides the big reason we mentioned earlier, it's also a medium for your razor to help achieve a clean-ass shave. So basically...don't deprive them of one another. Even if there are some strands remaining post your first big swipe, lather up again and shave it off. Or else, apply a shave oil and slyly glide over all the leftover areas. 14. Using Odd Angles. Here's the thing: most men hold razors too close to their faces. However, as a thumb rule, you need to hold it an angle of 30 degrees for best results. By doing this, you'd be cutting your strands at a 45 degrees angle, which ideally is the best angle for the razor to showcase its best. 15. Obsessing Over A Hairy Patch. This, undeniably, is a habit that every guy was just born to make—of trying and trying until he succeeds. However, here, don't make multiple passes over a hairy area, just because you've missed a few strands there. By successive and repeated trials, you'd only cut yourself. Instead, visit that area towards the end—that'll be better, more effective and save you some blood.
  20. Acne excuses are easy. "Bro, it runs in the family", "I'm growing up na", "You can't help it man" "It's all a fault of your sebum". But the truth of the matter is, acne happens. And pops up any time and is absolutely unavoidable. Men stress over things, time and again, eat odd meals, live an unhealthy lifestyle and that's when acne strikes. However, as it is with every wordily process, you can fight anything with the right products and simple changes in your life. While the latter we'll talk of at a later stage, for now, let's avoid/minimise/tackle the root of the four letter skin calamity. After some major trials, here are 7 face washes that, if not eliminate, will definitely cause a bloodbath with your acne everyday. 1.

  22. Recently a hashtag surfaced which has gathered enough momentum to address the issue at hand, and rightfully so. The #metoo campaign is an informal code of moralistic and ethical decree that needs to be questioned in society today. Started by actress Alyssa Milano of 'Charmed' fame, the hashtag has made quite a ripple effect all across the world and a semblance of solidarity is seen in every given way. Women and men alike are reaching out to the victims of sexual abuse and assault and standing up with them to put an end to this heinous and violent act. Stories are being shared of people who have gone through something as dreadful and we're proud of the ones who have come forward and taken a deep and impactful stance towards this rigorous revolution. But do you know sexual assault is gender neutral? Men are subjected to sexual assault and abuse as much as women are! The only difference is men don't talk about it as much or give it reasoning. The scars of such mortifying and alarming crimes remain and get buried with time. We're urging the men everywhere to come out with their experiences and deem them as important as women have, using the #MENtoo hashtag. We found some men who came forward to talk about their experiences of being assaulted or abused sexually and we couldn't have been more proud of their initiative to stand in solidarity with women and other men, who need to confront such issues, if they have gone through it. Anonymous I was working out at the gym wearing my gym gear (tights) and while exercising, I got slapped on my ass. It was humiliating and made me very furious. Men go through sexual abuse and assault too, not just women. Putting it out there #metoo Pranav Even though I was 5, I didn't come out with it because I don't think people would digest this. I think if it didn't happen, I wouldn't have been able to come to terms with my sexuality but because of this, I knew from that age what I preferred. The incident made me stronger. No hatred towards the person or anything. #metoo Anonymous Harish Iyer one needs to point out that all genders get abused, but kripiya, dont be an asshole, dont make this about feminism or anti-feminism #MeToo — harish iyer (@hiyer) 16 October 2017 Glorious Strategist @ KyleHomage As a bouncer, working on nightclub doors. There wasn't night where I & my colleagues weren't grabbed & groped by multiple women#MenToo — GloriousStrategist (@KyleHomage) 16 October 2017 Jack Off Jill Sexual assault can happen to men and women by men and women. #MeToo includes #MenToo. — Jack Off Jill (@JOJ_official) 16 October 2017 Sikandar Kamaal So I was at the airport once, walking from the parking to the arrival gate and busy on the phone. A guy brushed passed me touching my private part. I thought it was an accident because who will do such a thing deliberately at the most protected place in the city.. well then I went to the bathroom to relieve myself and the same guy was in the urinal next to mine. And when I was exiting he literally walks up to me and said can I touch 'it'. I just told home to **** off and that was the end of the story #metoo Rishi Keshav Madhukar Rahul Samyukhta Sexual abuse or assault is blatantly a serious issue which fringes on psychologically impacting ones mental health and well being. The scars remain with the memories and if not confronted, it can come out in various toxic ways. Just like women have instances, men too have gone through their fair share of abuse, assault and molestation. Let's come out with it, let's bring about some hope and solidarity. #MENtoo
  23. Harvey Weinstein´s fall should be the end of "dinosaur" men preying on women, Hollywood star Catherine Zeta-Jones said Tuesday as she premiered a film about a woman who had a brutally efficient way of dealing with chauvinism. Photo: AFP CANNES: Harvey Weinstein´s fall should be the end of "dinosaur" men preying on women, Hollywood star Catherine Zeta-Jones said Tuesday as she premiered a film about a woman who had a brutally efficient way of dealing with chauvinism. The Oscar-winning actress said she hoped Weinstein´s disgrace would be the "tipping point, or at last a turning point" in the treatment of women not just in Hollywood but in "any industry, corporation, school or college." "Let´s hope that big old dinosaur of men thinking they can get away with that sort of behaviour is extinct as of now," she told reporters. The British-born star, who plays the notorious Colombian drug baron Griselda Blanco in a new TV film, "Cocaine Godmother", joked that her character had a rather direct way of dealing with male sexism: "Shoot them in the head." Zeta-Jones said that while that would not be her approach, as a woman "you have to give her that, as we still fight for equality in the workplace." "Griselda had no redeeming traits but the one thing she did have was the ability to stand up against men in a male world," she said as the film screened at MIPCOM, the top TV industry gathering, in Cannes on the French Riviera. Sexism is not "just a problem in the film, theatrical or TV industry," Zeta-Jones, 48, added. "It is rife everywhere. As women we get knocked down as being ambitious. Men don´t get that. We should be proud of being ambitious, we shouldn´t hide it." She said she hoped lessons were being learned from the Weinstein affair, "otherwise we truly are stuck in a world that´s very sad and very destructive." Despite the dangers from predators, she advised young actors "not to lose your vulnerability -- it is essential to your craft. Vulnerability is a beautiful character trait and we should have it and be allowed to have it. But it´s important that we know it´s protected." Earlier Willow Grylls, producer of the TV series "The Missing", said fixating on one man and one industry "missed the point". "It is much wider than that. It´s about abuse of power," she said.
  24. Pals before gals, bros before * ahem * you know the word, bromance over romance. The movie industry loves celebrating the bond of male friendships and why shouldn't they? It's considered nothing less than sacred to men. I am sure you are guilty of secretly bailing out on your girl for a boys night out, chosen to take advice from your best friend instead of following what your girlfriend thought was right. Here is a legit reason for your behaviour. Turns out you are probably 'designed' to function that way. (sigh of sweet relief am I right?) © CBS A new study published on the basis of an extensive survey done by 'Men And Masculinity' shows that men usually prefer the emotional dependency on their bros over a romantic relationship. Having an intimate heterosexual friendship with fellow men has been the most normal thing in the history of humans. Relationships, romantic inclinations and even matrimonial alliances for that matter, have been the societal way of finding companionship and raising a family. The survey was conducted on over 30 men, mostly those who were pursuing graduation and had a girlfriend. The survey revealed that “the increasingly intimate, emotive, and trusting nature of bromances offers young men a new social space for emotional disclosure, outside of traditional heterosexual relationships.” © Warner Bros The main catalyst that led to men choosing their pals over their gals was the comfort that comes with the lack of judgement with their friends. Also, many subjects revealed that it was easier for them to open up to their male friends about their conflicts rather than their girlfriends. The study also highlighted something that you might be thinking while reading this. “The rise of the bromances may not altogether be liberating and socially positive for women”, according to the survey. The authors also suggested that these factors sometime even influence where and with whom men end up living with in their early years of adult life. This feeling might resonate with you as well, however, one should remember that balance is the key to a happy life. Sure, bromance will save you on a rainy day any day, but that does not mean that you neglect the possibility of a blossoming romance in your life.
  25. NEW YORK: Bruno Mars, Drake and Ed Sheeran led nominations Thursday for the American Music Awards, where for the first time no women were vying for the top prize. In the televised gala, set for November 19 in Los Angeles, winners are determined by fan voting, unlike the more prestigious Grammy Awards, which is based on polling of music industry players. No women were in the running for Artist of the Year for the first time since the category took its current form in 2002. Funk revivalist Bruno Mars and English songwriter Ed Sheeran were nominated for Artist of the Year as well as Video of the Year for their respective hits "That´s What I Like" and "Shape of You." Other nominees for Artist of the Year included Drake -- who was also in the running in both the pop/rock and rap fields -- and rapper Kendrick Lamar, as well as electronic duo The Chainsmokers. Another closely watched category, New Artist of the Year, had one woman among the nominees, pop singer Julia Michaels. Other nominees were former One Direction heartthrob Niall Horan, British singer and fellow TV contest star James Arthur, rapper Post Malone and hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd. Women have frequently been Artist of the Year, with Taylor Swift winning three times and Ariana Grande taking the prize last year. The American Music Awards also has separate female and male categories, with Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Alessia Cara in the running for favorite pop/rock female artist. The nominations come amid growing attention to gender inequality in the United States -- conspicuously so in the entertainment industry -- and amid mounting allegations that Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein preyed for years on young women.
