Sanju Samson Donates 15 Lakh To CM's Relief Fund, Urges Fans To Help Kerala Flood Victims

'God's Own Country', Kerala is currently battling the worst flood in 100 years. The death toll has climbed to over 300 and is on a constant rise. More than 3 lakh people have been shifted to relief camps and rescue missions are on to save thousands of people from this disaster; Kerala needs our help as the situation continues to worsen with each passing day.  Reuters Like a silver lining in the dark clouds, in this worsening situation, people from across the country are coming forward to support and help Kerala in every possible way. And cricketer Sanju Samson also lend a helping hand by donating Rs. 15 lakh to the Kerala Chief Minister's Relief Fund. In fact, he further urged his fans to support the Kerala flood victims. Reportedly, Samson's father Samson Vishwanadh and brother Saly Samson met CM Pinarayi Vijayan and handed over the cheque to him.  Instagram Samson, in an interview with Khaleej Times, said he is not doing this for publicity, "This is not for publicity. I do charity without letting the world know. Now, it's the time to raise some awareness on the importance of making a donation to the flood relief fund and people like me have to do it and let the public know. I think my action will prompt several other people to come forward and support the flood-hit people." And he did exactly that with this Facebook post. While people are appreciating and supporting Sanju Samson for helping the Kerala flood victims, they are also criticising India's youngest billionaire, Vijay Shekhar Sharma, for donating a small sum of Rs. 10,000 to the flood victims. Social media was not ready to let this pass just like that and bombarded Sharma with these tweets. Paytm founder @vijayshekhar Sharma, The youngest Indian billionaire with net worth of $1.7 billion did a self promotion by posting a screenshot of him donating a huge amount Rs.10000 via his @Paytm app towards #KeralaFloods.  Deleted it later. pic.twitter.com/ML7GHh1Y8i — Unofficial Sususwamy (@swamv39) August 18, 2018 See the cheapness of this Billionaire Vijay Shekhar, He makes a 10K grand donation, then posts a screenshot to promote Paytm & himself. pic.twitter.com/h9NEStOheD — Aashey (@789_aashey) August 18, 2018 Naam bade aur darshan chote.@vijayshekhar only 10 thousands rupeesð¤ you are a billionaire ðð#KeralaFloods #KeralaFloodRelief https://t.co/R7r7AHUz0B — Dr.Deepa Sharma (@deepadoc) August 18, 2018 Basically he did an expense of 10,000 to promote his app, will put it under Marketing budget...outright cheap and shameful by Vijay Shekhar....#paytm #KeralaFloods pic.twitter.com/SV3nlggxFx — Amrish Sawe (@AmrishSawe) August 18, 2018 So, billionaire Vijay Shekhar makes a 10 grand donation, then posts a screenshot to promote Paytm & himself.

11 Defining Moments That Shaped India During Our Beloved Former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee's Reign

Our former prime minister, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, passed away on August 16th, in New Delhi. He was 93. Learned, wise and a man of great stature, Vajpayee Ji was a whole nation's ideology on its own and he never failed to promote his progressive ideas, in the then regressive environment.  His prime-ministership lasted for 6 years, from 1998 to 2004 and he was the first non-Congress politician to complete 5 years as the PM of India. (c)Twitter A Bharat Ratna awardee, his premiership was significant and eventful in shaping India's democracy back then and definitely making it the fastest growing economy, post globalisation.  Not just that, he also put in a lot of effort for the downtrodden by introducing social reforms to uplift their standard of living. I personally feel Atalji is among the best PM's that our country has ever experienced, just by the sheer abundance of his knowledge, his stance on the nation's progress, sans favouritism in any way and his relations with the country's people and the world outside. Here's taking a look at 10 of his remarkable achievements, through his tenure from 1998 to 2004 as the prime minister Of India. 1. His Excellent Work In Foreign Policy There's been some really good work that's gone into maintaining bilateral relations with a lot of countries, post the cold war era. Vajpayee boosted trade relations with the US, which in turn led to the historic visit of the then president Bill Clinton in 2000. His government also put in a lot of efforts to improve economic ties between India and China but due to the border dispute tension, not much was achieved from that. To resolve the border dispute issue, Vajpayee's government initiated a structural mechanism for a 'high-level' dialogue, to absolutely do away with the dispute.  His 'Look East' policy also helped in improving India's ties with countries in South East Asia. This policy is being carried out by PM Modi till date. (c)Twitter 2. Strengthening Indo-Pak Ties Vajpayee's greatest foreign policy move till date has been improving the severed ties between India and Pakistan and he didn't leave any leaf unturned while trying his best to mend the ties between the two conflicted countries. I am sure most of you remember a bus service that was started between Delhi and Lahore. Yes, that was under his efforts to normalise the situation as much as he could. On February 19, 1999, a bus service from Delhi to Lahore was inaugurated and he was the first to travel to Pakistan to meet his then counterpart, Nawaz Sharif. (c)Twitter The effort was well received by the people but Vajpayee was also laughed at for his pragmatism. But this move paved way for a larger cause. There was untimely peace seen between the two nations through the Lahore declaration, which also opened up talks on nuclear non-proliferation and increasing trade relations. The two nations finally saw common goals being put into place. (c)Twitter 3. Privatisation One of the most important achievements during his tenure, was his commitment to reducing the government's role in carrying out businesses and this led to the formation of a disinvestment ministry. He privatised VSNL, BALCO and India Petrochemicals Corporation Limited. Of course, there was a lot of controversy looming around his actions post globalisation, but this also set the government in motion for the future to come, through his move to privatise a few companies. (c)Twitter 4. Putting India On The Nuclear Map On May 11, 1998, Vajpayee announced that India had carried out three nuclear tests, which shocked the media and the public. Two days later, India carried out two more tests.  The Pokhran-II nuclear bomb tests were carried out at the Pokhran test range in Rajasthan. While the US and other nations imposed sanctions and questioned the scientific validity of these tests, for us as a nation, it was a day of great technological advancement and a rather bold move by the three top politicians who had conducted the tests- Atal Bihari Vajpayee, defence minister George Fernandes and foreign minister Jaswant Singh. This move put India on the nuclear map, amongst other powerful nations and the government later declared May 11 as 'Technology Day'. (c)Twitter 5. His Contribution Towards The Education Sector Remember the 'Sarva Siksha Abhiyan', which was launched in 2000-2001, by the Vajpayee government? The then NDA government, under this dream project, had announced to provide free and compulsory education to children between the ages of 6-14 years. (c)Twitter Due to the success of this project, which was introduced in 2000, there was a significant decline in school dropouts from 80 lakh in 2009 to 30 lakh in 2012! Today, there are 19.67 crore children enrolled in 14.5 lakh elementary schools in the country, as told by the SSA official website. This is the best move the education sector has seen in our country so far. (c)Sarv Siksha Abhiyan 6. Revolutionising The Telecom Industry The Vajpayee government's telecom policy revolutionised the telecom industry in India and till date, Vajpayee is referred to as the 'father of modern telecommunication in India'.  The NTP (national telecom policy) was a big success under his leadership. The telecom sector witnessed an unprecedented growth in the number of mobile subscribers, foreign and domestic investment and a number of reforms which were imperative for the industry back then. (c)Twitter He was an ace economic reformer of course, and due to that very reason, the telecom industry saw some really positive changes, all of them which are still beneficial to us till date.  The new telecom policy which was introduced by his government allowed companies to provide mobile services on a revenue share basis, as opposed to the fixed fees they were paying. This was one of the things which led India to open its doors to become a globally competitive nation. 7. He Led The First Successful Coalition Government Coalition politics was absolutely a new concept back then and it led to Vajpayee leading large coalition parties with diverse backgrounds and different ideologies. He was the first PM to lead a coalition government and he did it very successfully and without biases. He was also the first non-congress Prime Minster to complete 5 years in office. (c)Twitter 8. Improvement In Infrastructure The Vajpayee government launched 'The Golden Quadrilateral' (GQ), which was one of the biggest projects in the roadways sector, in post-Independent India. The GQ project connected Chennai, Kolkata, Delhi and Mumbai through a network of highways. Another infrastructural project which was very successful was the 'Pradhanmantri Gramin Sadak Yojna'. The project aimed at connecting even the inaccessible roads, through all the villages in India. Both these projects were an immense success in the roadways and infrastructure sector and definitely had a positive hand in India's economic growth. (c)Twitter 9. His Presence Of Mind During The Kandahar Fiasco On December 24, 1999, Indian Airlines flight IC-814, from Kathmandu to New Delhi with 176 passengers on board was hijacked by a Pakistani extremist group Harkat-Ul-Mujahideen. They demanded the release of three terrorists who were being held as prisoners in India, in exchange for the passengers on the flight. Vajpayee surrendered to their demands and saved the lives of the people on board. The then defence minister Jaswant Singh escorted the prisoners to Kandahar himself, where the aircraft was stationed. (10) Introduction of The Fiscal Responsibility Act Vajpayee's government help raise the GDP to about 8 per cent, while it was in power! He also introduced the 'Fiscal Responsibility Act, which aimed to reduced India's fiscal deficient and boost the public-sector savings, which rose from 0.8% in GDP in FY 2000 to 2.3% in FY 2005. (c)Twitter 11. His Stern Message To Narendra Modi During The Gujarat Riots During the Godhra riots, the NDA government was criticised for its complacency and was accused of doing nothing to condone the riots back then. This was also because Gujarat had the BJP government in power, led by the now PM, Narendra Modi. In a rebuke to the then Gujarat CM, Vajpayee stated his grief and his disbelief of the events that had happened there, in a statement addressed directly to the CM saying- "CM Modi should follow his Rajdharma, and not discriminate on the basis of caste, creed or religion." This statement was as genuine as it could be and we knew that the Vajpayee government absolutely condoned the vicious acts of violence that took place in Gujarat in 2002. (c)Twitter Vajpayee was known as the 'Bheeshm Pitamah' of the Indian politics, and rightfully so. The country saw its truest, most utmost development back then and his reforms are still carried out by today's government. The best orator, Vajpayee was selected by the PM before him,  P.V Narasimha Rao, to lead the delegation and represent India in Geneva and address issues pertaining to Kashmir back then. Even though Vajpayee was from the opposition, Rao had enough faith in a man who would put all his biases aside and stand for what is right. And he did that till the last day of his reign in the year 2004. (c)Twitter The only PM who stood on an even ground when India was going through one of the most turbulent times while dealing with religious and political instability. He saw through all of that and was greatly respected and accepted by all the politicians across party lines and by the democracy at large.  I am sure his legacy will continue to live on and also hope the current and the future government(s) abide by the beautiful example he has set on how to run a country, flawlessly.

The Intense Trailer For Manoj Bajpayee's 'Gali Guleiyan' Shows The Dark Side Of The Human Mind

The trailer of Manoj Bajpayee's award-winning film 'Gali Guleiyan' is out and it is gritty and gripping, to say the least.   Backed up by a cast par excellence - Ranvir Shorey, Neeraj Kabi, and Shahana Goswami, the movie looks promising in every frame and will leave you with a string of various questions by the end of the trailer. (c) Youtube The trailer shows us Manoj Bajpayee aka Khuddus, who is trying to keep a tab on what's happening with a child next door. He listens to a ruthless father (Neeraj Kabi) mercilessly beating up his child every night. We also see Shahana Goswami as a mother, trying to protect the kid from her husband's wrath.  Bajpayee, throughout the clip, is concerned and wants to save the kid. However, nothing is clear in this psychological roller coaster, and that's the brilliance of it.  (c) Youtube Though the trailer does raise a set of questions. First of all, why is the child being beaten up so brutally? Why is Bajpayee so concerned? Is he just a concerned neighbour or there is something more to the story? The flow of the story is intriguing and keeps you involved. Coming to the screen is also the talented Ranvir Shorey as Bajpayee's friend, who tries to understand what is going through his friend's mind. (c) Youtube The trailer reads, “A psychological drama about a man who is trapped within the city walls and in his own mind. He attempts to break free to find a human connection.” Check out the trailer: The movie has already been showcased at a few International film festivals and has won awards too. Helmed by Dipesh Jain, the film will release September 7, 2018

Mujhe wo itne priya the ki main unko dadda kehke bulaati thi. Aaj mujhe waisa dukh hua hai jaise mere pita ji ke swargwas ke samay hua tha. Ishwar unki aatma ko shanti de."

New 'Game Of Thrones' Theory Claims That Khal Drogo Might Be Resurrected & Our Minds Are Blown

The wait for the epic 'Game Of Thrones' finale keeps getting more and more difficult by the minute, but the number of theories, spoilers, BTS videos and pictures that keep coming our way, are somehow making the wait slightly bearable. The finale has a lot of answers to give us and this new Khal Drogo theory that we just came across, is actually playing with our minds big time. © HBO Rumours and this theory have it that Khaleesi's 'moon of my moon' might just make a comeback (it's no Ekta Kapoor serial but it is still fiction right?) and fans have a solid reasoning for it. If you go back to the time when he died in Season 1, you'll recall that a witch named Mirri Maz Duur poisoned him with her magic and also killed his unborn son in Khaleesi's womb. Daenerys, who had to smother him to death to end his suffering, eventually tied her to Drogo's funeral pyre to burn her and before that, the witch puts a curse on her which goes like this: “When the sun rises in the West and sets in the East. When the seas go dry and mountains blow in the wind like leaves. When your womb quickens again, and you bear a living child. Then he will return, and not before.” So, if one had to decrypt it then it is plausible to think that the 'he' in this case, is Khal Drogo. © HBO Also, to put the entire prophecy in perspective, the sun moving backwards could refer to how 'winter is finally coming'. The seasons going dry refers to everything freezing thanks to the Night King and his advancing army of the dead, and the mountains blowing in the wind could simply mean the Wall falling down. Khaleesi is expecting a child, as we all know already, so it seems like the prophecy will come to life. The only thing that can go differently is that if Khaleesi names her newborn after Drogo and hence he returns. Wow! That would be quite unexpected if the prophecy is to be believed, but imagine Drogo coming back to life right when Jon Snow is already in the picture. What an epic love triangle!

Michael Hartono: Djarum Black's Owner & Indonesia's Richest Man Who'll Compete At Asian Games

Remember 'Djarum Black'? The black-coloured clove cigarettes that initially looked cool to smoke and made you stand out, until you realised your folks could smell its strong stench from a mile away. Often labelled as a rich man's Gudang Garam, they are almost available at every roadside shop in India today. But, have you wondered where it came from? I was almost under the impression that it was being manufactured at some shady factory in Andhra Pradesh. However, it's not. 'Djarum Black' - also known as 'kreteks' - are imported from Indonesia - one of the biggest exporters of clove cigarettes, cigars and hand-rolled bidis in the world. It is manufactured by Indonesia's famous Djarum Group which was founded by an ethnic Chinese businessman in Kudus (Central Java) in 1951. Oei Wie Gwan bought a nearly defunct cigarette company known as NV Murup and gave birth to the brand Djarum we all know today. But, the company also went extinct in 1963 when a huge fire destroyed its factory which was followed by Gwan's death. © Twitter The death of Djarum Group's owner paved way for his children Robert Budi Hartono and Michael Bambang Hartono who took over the reins and re-established their brand. Today, Djarum Group has around 50 blends of clove cigarettes internationally and is the world's third-largest manufacturer of clove cigarettes. The company has an estimated net worth of over $11 billion, while Hartono family's net worth is estimated to be around $16.7 billion (according to Forbes). But, the Hartono family isn't in news for their commercial interests in tobacco, banking and communications amongst others, rather it is Gwan's son Michael whose much-anticipated participation in the 2018 Asian Games, slated to begin from 18th August in Jakarta & co-hosted in Palembang, that has got the media attention. Michael, the 78-year-old billionaire tobacco tycoon and the richest man in Indonesia, is set to represent his country on its bridge team at the world's second-biggest multi-sport event. Classified as a 'mind game', contract bridge is a card game that is played with a standard 52-card deck. In its basic format, it is played by four players in two competing partnerships, with partners sitting opposite each other around a table. © Twitter The game consists of several deals - each progressing through four phases. The cards are dealt to the players, and then the players auction or bid to take the contract, specifying how many tricks the partnership receiving the contract (the declaring side) needs to take to receive points for the deal. During the auction, partners communicate information about their hand, including its overall strength and the length of its suits, although conventions for use during play also exist. The cards are then played, the declaring side trying to fulfil the contract, and the defenders trying to stop the declaring side from achieving its goal. The deal is scored based on the number of tricks taken, the contract, and various other factors which depend to some extent on the variation of the game being played.  Well, it's more of a mystery to me who has never been able to get a hold of any card game (including childish Uno). But, what's interesting here is the fact that contract bridge has been included to the Games by Indonesia as hosts. And, it appears that Michael Hartono played a crucial role in convincing a sceptical Olympic Council of Asia to gove the card game its maiden run at the Asian Games. I guess, when you are the richest man in the country, it doesn't really take much convincing, does it. © Twitter Hartono's association to bridge reportedly dates back to the tender age of six. He has also competed several times in the World Bridge Championships and now aims to strike gold for his country at the Asian Games. But, the tobacco king, claims he isn't doing it for money, but for the passion he has for bridge. In fact, Hartono has announced that he'll forego the 1.5 billion rupiah ($102,000) cash prize that the Indonesian government has promised to award to its top medallists at the Games. "If I managed to win gold, I would donate the government's cash prize to the athletes training program," he was quoted as saying by domestic news agency Antara. Apart from his rich background and passion for bridge, Hartono narrowly missed out on being the oldest player to compete at this year's Asian Games. Malaysia's Lee Hung Fong - the 81-year-old who'll compete against Hartono in contract bridge - has claimed the unique feat with his participation. Fong is seven decades older than the youngest athlete - nine-year-old Indonesian skateboarder Aliqqa Novvery Kayyisa - at this year's edition of the Games.

How To Master The Subtle Art Of Being A Fuckboi Without Being A Jerk

“So, do you think you are a fuckboi? “ “Yeah, I guess so.” “What makes you think that?” “Just… you know, I date girls and we like…hang out." I detected a hint of a smile through his beard as he said this. The beard made him look older than he really was and his oversized t-shirt hung loosely over his shoulders. There was nothing extraordinary about him, as he was a cardboard copy of the guys which in his fancy South Mumbai college. But then, these days you no longer need to stand out to date. You just need to be signed up on dating apps and know how to swipe using your finger. via GIPHY Looking at him, I wondered what had gotten into me to really go around the colleges in Mumbai and ask students about their opinions on dating. I suppose it was partly because I was curious to know how dating has changed since my college days. To be honest, I started thinking about all the women I had dated after the whole #metoo movement. The fact that there is a movement with a hashtag in its name says something about where we are truly living. But more about that some other time. When the disturbing details about one of my favourite Indian American TV stars' (Aziz Ansari) misbehaviour with a woman he was on a date with came out, I thought about all the women I had dated, and of one in particular. We were just friends in college but I always had a crush on her. We stayed in touch after college ended and I was excited when she agreed to meet me for dinner one day. Even though she told me that she had a boyfriend, I kissed her. when I was dropping her off. She was too surprised then to react and instead, just smiled. It was the last time we had any contact with each other. Even though I apologized to her, it wasn't until the Aziz Ansari scandal broke out that I thought about her again, and how she must have felt. Today, conversations are more out in the open than they were ever before, and dating has become a lot more casual. The idea and the very definition of romance have changed and the surge of dating apps has surely played a major role in that. via GIPHY And yet, men continue to behave in such a way that women are put off by the very idea of men. Hell, there is a word epitomized for such men--Fuckboi. Fuckboi, a word in the internet slang says a lot about a man...albeit nothing positive. Women don't swoon over fuckbois, they don't particularly entertain them and they definitely see through their bullshit. Scrolling through Twitter or Instagram, it is easy to find women sharing screenshots of chats with men whom they know are fuckbois. They have this unique and strange ability to turn any conversation into a string of cheesy unimpressive lines. Just like the conversation below. Women are simply calling out the bullshit which ranges from men sending the same message to multiple women (and all of them find each other on twitter and it goes viral!) to women calling out men by sharing screenshots of their chats and publicly shaming them. Fuckbois are...to rather not put it delicately, fucked. As I too hopped on the Tinder wagon, swiping women based on the flimsy criteria set by an app because of its design…I realized that I had more fun when I had no expectations at all from my date. I stopped thinking of dating as a game and started taking it as an experience. The best part is that it is up to you two entirely, to define that experience. It is either positive or negative; lasts an hour, a night or a week or even more. What matters is how that time is spent together. Look at it as that time of your life which will not come back, and in a lot of cases, not with the same person at all! Use this time to know the other person and where they have come from. via GIPHY And when you listen to her, a story emerges. A unique story which is very different from your own. Sometimes it will be fascinating and sometimes, it will be a sheer waste of time. But that's okay, it happens. Sometimes you will be able to relate to it, and sometimes you'll find your mind drifting away to dessert. You don't connect with every person you meet in your life, so why expect the same here? Take a keen interest in your date not only because *** is involved, but simply because the older you get...the fewer people you will come to know and the fewer perspectives you will know of. Also, a date which is interesting and fun will anyways have a higher chance of ending up in *** than a dull one. ;) Coming back to the bearded boy with the oversized t-shirt, he also felt that women who are on dating apps will at least put out with him at the end of the date and anything less than that was a rejection. We men do have a tendency to think from our ***** at times. Rather than doing that, ask her why she is there. Different women have different expectations and they vary from person to person. Just ask her. Some women are there because they are new to the city, or have recently broken up and have been pushed by their friend or are looking for some sort of connection in this lonely life. Even if she seems coy and hides her reason, it is okay. It is her secret to divulge when she is comfortable and maybe she is still sizing your intentions. via GIPHY I have met women who are committed but are simply looking for friends, to women who just want to take it casually and not be bothered by the burden of relationships. I have turned down those who have been looking for serious relationships, simply because I am not. Be honest about your intentions. The worst part is leading people on and ghosting them. You both may not be in the same space and not be looking for the same things either, which happens often. Besides, new women are joining these apps every day so it's not like you are out of options. Once I had matched with a woman but she didn't respond to my message. So I stalked her on Facebook and dropped her a message there. She did reply, but her response was not what I had hoped it would be. She was in fact creeped out that I had followed her online. Our bearded friend has also dropped messages on social media to women he has matched with and his response is a very casual “So what else do we do man?” Ah, we men are so helpless in the face of rejection. It's an endless stream of “heys” until women have to block these men. If you are this guy, and if you think that one day the girl will just answer you then you have been given the wrong idea of women. If she wants to go out with you, she will tell you. After all, you both have matched voluntarily. But there will be times when she won't respond at all. Do not go around following her social media accounts and dropping DMs in the hopes that she will answer you one day. via GIPHY It. Doesn't. Work. As for me, I simply apologized to her and told her I won't contact her again. It didn't matter though, she had already blocked me. She just didn't want to deal with another stalker. Dating has become much easier and it is even possible to meet women whom you would have never met before. Hell, I have even dated a bartender…and believe me, I am not the guy to chat up bartenders at all! But dating apps enable that, so men… Let's just be better fuckbois because we all know that *** is just one aspect of dating. via GIPHY Don't make it the most important one.

Rohit Sharma Offers To Open For India In Tests, But Is He Any Better? Stats Say Otherwise

Team India's inability to deliver the goods away from home is nothing new. And, it's quite understandable too. You see, playing tracks are generally prepared to favour the home team. Then there are the conditions. As alien as they might prove for the visitors, the home side is undoubtedly more comfortable in its own den. India does it too by deploying the spinning wickets. And the sight of visiting teams being blanked by Indian spinners at home is not really a surprise. So, if every team prepares the surfaces to suit their respective teams, how does one identify who's better? The answer is quite simple. While winning at home surely boosts the points in rankings for a team, it's their ability to perform in hostile territory that truly makes them a dominant force in the sport, worthy of being called the world's no. 1 side. And, that's exactly why Virat Kohli's men - currently the top-ranked Test team - must justify their no. 1 tag in the ongoing England tour. After showing signs of positive cricket at Edgbaston, the Indian cricket team were left red-faced owing to a shambolic batting display at hallowed Lord's. The world's best team in the longest format was ripped into pieces by the England quicks before being handed a loss of the magnitude of an innings and 159 runs. Such was the disappointment that the Indian captain had to publicly ask the Indian fans to "not give up on the team". © Reuters Amongst some noticeable problems for India, the biggest seems to be their opening conundrum. The men, tasked with the responsibility of giving their team a solid start and setting the foundation for the middle order, have failed miserably so far. The three opening options - Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul - have neither made a mark, nor looked convincing against the opposition's seam bowling prowess. It's not like these three men don't have the variety and skill to help India get off to a comfortable start, they surely do and their individual performances across the globe is a testimony to that. But, defeating England in their own territory demands special application and solid intent - something that has sadly eluded the three men in question. While Dhawan was sacked from the playing XI after scoring just 39 runs in the first Test, Vijay (26 runs at Edgbaston) and Rahul (17 runs at Edgbaston) could only add 0 and 18 respectively at Lord's - a catastrophe that pushed India's opening woes into the spotlight. If the three proven openers couldn't survive the test of master tormentor James Anderson and his mates, who would? © Reuters The collective failure of Indian openers switched our focus to the likes of Mayank Agarwal and Prithvi Shaw. Since the 2013-14 season, while Mayank has amassed over 3000 runs including eight hundreds in first-class cricket, Shaw has slammed close to 1500 runs including seven tons. But, that's domestic cricket on Indian pitches. And, the fact that Shaw is still in his teens and Mayank has no international experience surely ruins their chances. So, who else? Well, India's 'Hitman' has come up with an answer. Rohit Sharma, who has been force to be reckoned with in limited-overs cricket, is well-aware of India's ongoing opening troubles and has offered his help. The Mumbai batsman has offered to open the innings for India in the longest format. "Look, I have never been offered (to open the innings in Tests) yet but I am open to anything as in whatever the team management wants. I never thought I will be an opener in ODIs when I started playing or when I was playing for India. But it happened along the way, so I (want to) keep my options open. No option is shut for me, so if the opportunity comes, I will take it," Rohit said during a promotional event. © BCCL Now, it's quite generous of Rohit to offer his help at a time when Team India needs it the most. But, is he any better than the other three openers? On his day, Rohit is unstoppable with the willow, weaving the magic one generally associates with someone like Lionel Messi. But, just like the Argentine, Rohit tends to shoot blanks more often for his national team than hitting the mark with consistency. There is a reason why he is not a regular choice in the longest format and was not included in India's Test squad for the first three Tests. In the 16 Tests he has played away from home, Rohit has scored 710 with just four fifties to his name. In fact, the last time he played in England, the right-hander was dismissed for the paltry scores of 28 and 6 in two innings. Now, one might argue that Rohit's statistics in the limited playing time he got in the longer format might not do justice to his abilities, but there is no denying that the marauding right-hander lacks consistency, patience and temperament to stay at the crease - virtues of success in Tests. Rather than throwing Rohit as an opener into the turbulent sea, India would probably be better off giving another go to either of their current openers. If that seems far-fetched, then India would be better off roping in Shaw or Mayank despite their lack of experience. Trying the two youngsters might seem foolish, but didn't a young Sachin score brilliant hundreds in Australia and England after the senior batsmen had failed? © BCCL Shaw is nearly as much a genius as Tendulkar was in regards to his uncanny footwork and aggressive stroke play. And, there is a great possibility of the youngster coming good against a fearsome bowling attack as that of England. On the other hand, Mayank has a great hand-eye coordination like Virender Sehwag and even if his footwork is as flawed as Viru, he still makes for a potential candidate. The fact is Indian selectors should not overlook candidates just because they're young or lack experience. The only parameter that matters is the ability of a player to deliver the goods. If someone is capable enough, then he must be given a chance over those who've stuttered time and again. If France thought the same of Kylian Mbappe, we probably wouldn't have seen the genius of a 19-year-old on the world's biggest stage. Trying Rohit in the longest format is a recipe for disaster, especially when the likes of Anderson and Stuart Broad at staring down at the other end. The Mumbai cricketer is supremely talented by anyone in their sane mind would know that he would be the worst bet in the Test team, let alone opening the innings for India. Having lost two successive games, India are now just one loss away from suffering another Test series defeat in England. But, it's not only their no. 1 tag and pride that's on the line, the Lord's debacle showed how a cricket powerhouse like India can be made to look mediocre, highlighting their complacency at the top - something they must prepare for to negate such challenges in the future.

Evaluate These 3 Things First In Your Relationship Before Using The Big 'L' Word

If you're a 'love at first sight' kind of person, then this article isn't for you. Roaming around with your heart on your sleeve is not a sane thing to do these days. Actually, now that I think of it, this article is especially for you. It's not wise to use the 'L' word as soon as you jump into a relationship and you're about to find out why. When I look around, I see many young people getting divorced or having a bitter breakup. The reason? They jump into something serious without knowing each other completely. People often mistake infatuation with love. When you start a relationship, make sure you love the person and not the idea of being in a relationship. If it's the latter one, it won't last long.  Consider the following three things before throwing the 'L' word at her: Compatibility Having a different taste is fine and natural, but having a different mindset might create problems. Find out your common grounds, if any. See if her hobbies interest you or not. Check if you would want to spend the weekend the way she likes. You'll be spending all your time together in future, so you should see if you actually like each other's company, interests, and hobbies. via GIPHY It's alright if you like romcoms and she likes thrillers but it's not okay if you're let's-go-to-a-library person and she's the skydiving enthusiast. You may show interest in each other's hobbies at the start but if you genuinely don't find it interesting then this will create a major problem in the future for you. Upbringing Some people are raised with a lot of freedom and some had to take their family's permission even for a school picnic. You might think it doesn't matter but it does. These two different ways of upbringing create two very different mindsets. If you were brought up in a fully independent atmosphere and she always involves the family in every small matter, then this will irk you in the long run. You would start blaming her but it's not her fault, as she was raised this way. Before jumping into anything serious, make sure you two are standing on the same ground. *** The word is still a taboo in our society and certainly isn't considered a priority by most people, when it comes to choosing a partner. Let me tell you something, in order to have a great, long and happy relationship, *** is as important as any other thing. via GIPHY If you're a missionary kind of a person and she loves 50 shades of grey, then this will create a big problem in the long term. Not only this, but having an equal *** drive is also very important. You must make sure that you two are sexually compatible. via GIPHY Something which you would be doing for the rest of your life (well, for most of it), should be considered while taking a relationship decision. Now that you know what things matter in a relationship, it's time to evaluate the “I Love You” that you said so casually to your Tinder date.

6 Hindi Short Films To Watch On YouTube Over The Weekend

With the increased consumption of digital content, renowned and new filmmakers have brought a variety of short films which shall enthrall you in a very short span of time. Here is a look at some of the Hindi short films available on YouTube that are worth your time.  Chutney Director: Jyoti Kapur Das Cast: Tisca Chopra, Adil Hussain, Rasika Duggal, Sumit Gulati This short film is as spicy and flavorsome as it gets with an unrecognizable Tisca Chopra, who is sharing gossips with Rasika Duggal over pakoras and thanda on her terrace. The short film which has garnered over 121 million views on YouTube is witty, dark and delicious. Jyoti Kapur Das presents this short film in a terrific way by opening up different layers to the story slowly and steadily. She intrigues her audience right from the beginning and one simply cannot wait for the mystery to unfold. Watch it for yourself and unlock the mystery. Juice Director: Neeraj Ghaywan Cast: Shefali Shah, Manish Prakash Chaudhuri With a terrific Shefali Shah playing a housewife in 'Juice', Neeraj Ghaywan (who has also directed 'Masaan') presents the ideology of male entitlement in the society. The story is set around a small gathering of husband's male friends who are enjoying snacks and discussing politics over booze and cigarettes while the women are cooking in the kitchen. It presents the idea of ingrained prejudice against women directly in the face of audience by segregating the gender role-play in a typical Indian society. It is interesting to see Shefali Shah emote beautifully through her eyes and the way she owns her character, Manju. The Schoolbag Director: Dheeraj Jindal Cast: Rasika Duggal, Sartaj Kakkar Set against the backdrop of Peshawar attacks of 2014, the film touches upon the act of terrorism and the innocent lives it costs. The film is about a heart-warming tale of a mother-son relationship on the eve of the son's birthday and the sudden turn of events in their life. Rasika Duggal is another powerhouse of talent and her work in short films like 'Chutney', 'The Schoolbag' and Zoya Akhtar directed 'Lust Stories' segment is testimony to it. Ahalya Director: Sujoy Ghosh Cast: Radhika Apte, Soumitra Chatterjee, Tota Roy Chowdhury Sujoy Ghosh directed 'Ahalya' gives us the feel of old mysterious short thrillers, which people used to read in newspapers or magazines. The film begins and ends at the same point leaving it open-ended and leaving some unanswered questions for the viewers. It leaves you intrigued while wanting for more. The Guest Director: Ayappa K. M. Cast: Shefali Shah, Davinder Madan Winner at the Mumbai Short Film Festival, 'The Guest' in its 8-minute run-time takes us through an unexpected journey of a young man, whose car breaks down in the mountains. As the film progresses, an unsettling eeriness creeps in the atmosphere and concludes leaving the film open to our wildest imaginations. Chhuri Director: Mansi Jain Cast: Tisca Chopra, Anurag Kashyap, Surveen Chawla Similar to the setting of extra-marrital affairs in 'Chutney', Tisca Chopra starrer 'Chhuri' is more direct and sharp like a knife. The film is about a cheating husband who finds excuses to meet her mistress while the wife manages the household. The twist in the tale is what happens when the wife already knows it. The most likeable part about this film is the quirky and clever take on the concept of extra-marrital affairs without resorting to melodrama or revenge saga.

5 Grooming Hacks That David Beckham's Sons Should Learn From Their Father

If there's anyone with the skills of saving one's face — it's David Beckham. Blame his terrific skincare routine and grooming ritual here and we'd declare you as a smart man. After all, a habit of taking care of yourself, ensuring you do it daily, and doing the right things at the right time (also, before it's too late) — is the way of ensuring you look 23 at 43. So, going by that theory, let's just say: Beckham comes with capital-G moves to cop. But that's like talking of senior-Beckham. David has three sons from his marriage with Victoria Beckham too, that are drops of genetically-blessed entities themselves. But before age starts to hit them and just in case, they've been skipping a step or two, here's a list of 5 grooming habits they must learn from their age-defying father right away.  © WWD 1. Face masks are as golden as golden gets As stated by the ex-footballer himself, David indulges in face masks quite frequently. But well — he does it in private, and not to garner likes on Instagram. But whether you use these masks to remove the excess oil, dirt and grime off your face or to simply hydrate your skin using a sheet mask; the point remains that face masks ensure your skin goes a long way. Time we relent. Plus, don't face masks feel great anyway? Even Beckham thinks so. © Innisfree 2. Under-eye care isn't for losers Correct us if we're wrong: baggy/puffy under-eyes, dark circles make any man look haggled, fatigued and well, just not very attractive. Plus, having zero under-eye stress is rule #1 of looking younger than usual, right? Using Vitamin E oil, hydrating serums will help prevent wrinkles and rid you of the appearance of any kind of under-eye tiredness. Result? You're going to end up looking a lot younger. © Clinique 3. Your hands need a hand job — with a cream In case you're not aware, your hands lack the presence of sebaceous glands, meaning: they're a hell lot prone to drying. Also, meaning: they're a lot more susceptible to cracking up and peeling off, come whatever weather their way. To avoid all that, the trick lies in moisturizing daily, and doing that with a season-less approach (hand creams aren't just for winters). Use a cream that gets absorbed faster and doesn't make your hands feel greasy. © Clarins Men 4. Thickening shampoos actually help God forbid, if you're not wanting to look like David Beckham in life, you can happily succumb to hair-thinning. But the truth is, no one (except you) would appreciate that sight. Take our suggestion, and begin with using hair-thickening shampoos occasionally, starting from your 20s. And, keep them closer through your 30s and 40s. Hair-thickening shampoos contain special polymers, that'll give your shaft a collective bounce. Just look at David Beckham's mane! © Molton Brown 5. Know about hair serums? It's a world-renowned fact that hair serums prevent your strands from damage, reduces frizz, hydrates them, make them easier to style and well, give them a much longer life. Plus, they're useful in controlling the oil produce on your scalp, so that there's no excess oil trickling down your forehead, neck and back, causing troubles like breakouts and boils in the heat. But most importantly, hair serums ensure that your mop looks as glorious as Beckham's. Rub some into your mop right after a hair-bath or a minute (or two) before you're starting to style them.

Rooted In Heritage & Authenticity, Jaypore's Puneet Chawla Tells Us Why They're Special

India is the land of art and culture - in our land every colour holds a meaning and every thread or stitch tells you a story. A land where magic lies between the folds of our palms and takes the form of exquisite pieces of handicraft, be it the ones you adorn your body with or the ones that decorate your abode. The history and heritage that India holds within its pretty valleys and tiny hamlets, as well as the inexplicable talents that stay hidden amongst the bustling or solitary bylanes of long forgotten villages remains unheard of and often unexplored to a great extent. Until of course a man who goes by the name of Puneet Chawla decided to dig further and explore this arena of Indian culture and heritage. An idea gave birth to a platform that brought forth and displayed some of India's most magnificent and forgotten forms of handicrafts. Jaypore's origin lay in its inherent need to open the pathways of interaction and collaboration between India's talented artisans and a consumer that has an elevated taste and eye for authentic Indian crafts and goods. © MensXP Tracing The Roots Jaypore was born out of Puneet's desire to explore the international market for Indian handicrafts thereby also providing work and recognition to innumerable artisans in the country who were waiting to be discovered. What started as a one man and two women army, working out of an old haveli in Delhi's Shahpur Jat, the initially launched online e-commerce brand has now expanded to launch its first offline store a couple of months back, with the second one already set to open its door to public real soon. From humble beginnings to monetary and manforce struggles, Jaypore has seen it all. Thriving on its credibility and positive recommendations from customers through word-of-mouth and honest reviews, Jaypore today ships 25-30,000 products a month! They work closely with around 1,00,000 artisans from every state in India and of which almost 70% are women! © MensXP Known for their extensive collection of premium artisanal lifestyle products with a contemporary touch to them, the brand is a major hit both online and offline. Puneet takes immense pride in every vendor Jaypore is associated with and finds and alignment between their beliefs that craft isn't merely a business but a way of life for the craftsmen in India. Having had the vision to provide a platform to these the fast disappearing forms of art, his brand today works with almost every craft technique, from every state in the subcontinent. © MensXP Since its inception in 2012, Jaypore today boasts of a vendor base that's over one thousand in number every quarter and a customer base that topples over a whopping 1,00,000! Now they even have an offline store that they launched recently in GK-I and that's one move that's close to Puneet's heart. He feels that the Indian customer loves to touch and feel all the products they invest in and the store provides that opportunity to his trusting consumers.They have kept the store subtle and ensured that every product gets visibility while maintain a sense of abundance and discovery in the store. © MensXP Puneet considers himself very lucky to have come across the angel investor who invested in his business idea and saw potential in it at the very initial stage of Jaypore's making. They survived on the same investment for the next three years and went for their Series A funding only in 2016 and so far they have raised a total of 50 crores in the last five years. Puneet also places a lot of importance and value on experimentation and risk taking attitude to continuously grow and evolve as a brand that continues to cater to the needs of the artisans as well as the valuable consumer-base that Jaypore holds. For Puneet that last five years have all been about discovery, passion and adding value to people's lives. Not only did he bring exposure to Indian handicrafts on an international level, he has always made his customers his priority and served them with honesty and dedication, thereby bring immense success to the brand. Such an inspiring story we must say!

Gym Trainers Aren't Physiotherapists, So Stop Asking Them To Fix Your Injuries

If you are a regular at the gym, you would very well know that injuries are a part and parcel of the game. If you have been training for more than a year without even pulling a muscle once, either you are a god or you do not train hard enough. Injuries can happen to the best of us and they suck because they make you quit something that you like doing. Getting back to lifting sooner than later depends on how quickly you get correct treatment from the person who is supposed to treat you. That person is certainly NOT your gym trainer. Now, I have seen trainers acting like physiotherapists claiming to know anything and everything about human anatomy and injury rehabilitation. No matter which gym you go to, you'll see trainers who cannot even pronounce the body part correctly trying to help people “stretch” their muscles. Especially when it comes to ladies, these trainers turn into physios, chiropractors, osteopaths and physical therapist, all wrapped into one. However, the fact of the matter is that you should never ever turn to your gym trainer for either advice or treatment when it comes to injuries. No matter how knowledgeable your train says or acts like he is, it is not his area of expertise and, in most of the cases, he won't have a clue what caused your injury. Treating it is a whole different ball game. They just do not know what to do. It is the same as asking your milkman to fix your car's engine. Every person is different, and thus every case is different. This means the tests and treatments that will be recommended will be different. © Thinkstock Images No, Even If He's A Certified Nutritionist He's Isn't Qualified To Treat Injuries   Now, if you are thinking that your gym or personal trainer is “certified” and is somehow different from those “uneducated” trainers out there, let me assure you that he/she still does not have the expertise to treat an injury. It does not matter how many courses or certifications your trainer has amassed; he is still just a trainer which means he is an exercise expert and not an injury rehab or treatment expert. © Thinkstock Images How do I know this? Well, because I am a certified trainer myself and I know what my area of expertise is and what isn't. So, while I can spot a difference between a shoulder and a thigh injury, I do not know how to manipulate or massage any of those joints, and so no “certified” trainer in this world would know how to do that. What To Do When You Get Injured? If you get injured, you should go and see a specialist. By seeing the person or a therapist under whose area of practice your injury falls, you find out exactly what's wrong and what to do to recover and rehabilitate. Most therapists will be happy to pass on recommendations and corrective measures to your trainer. That way your trainer, who is an exercise expert, can help you do those exercises correctly.

MXP Body Love: Actor Sahil Salathia Answers 7 Intimate Questions About His Awesome Physique

In 'MXP Body Love', we ask people with amazing bodies the key questions about how to achieve, maintain, and basically take care of our bodies in the best way possible, while seeking their guidance on the same.  While we want to know hacks on seemingly superficial topics such as how to look good without clothes, we also want to delve deep and discuss bigger issues such as body positivity, acceptance, how to deal with insecurities, and also how to move past difficulties and strive to reach the best version of oneself.  Our 'Body Love' expert here is actor Sahil Salathia, who answers 7 intimate questions about his physique. © Sahil Salathia 1. One Food You Should Never, Ever Eat? To be honest, try and avoid sugar and junk as much as you can. Keep your one or two cheat meals in place every week but don't make a habit of consuming sugar and/or junk every other day.  Personally, I even avoid white rice completely. I have replaced white rice in my diet with quinoa. I have even found a substitute for wheat chapatis in 'naachni roti'. These small changes in your diet go a long way and once you form a habit of them, life seems super normal, unless you are a Bengali and just can't live without rice haha!  Btw, I love Bengali fish curry with white rice. That is my ultimate food fetish. Hence, I am going to marry a Bengali girl who can make me fish curry every now and then. Rest of the time, I'll cook quinoa and 'naachni roti' for the two of us. © Sahil Salathia 2. The One Body Part You Should Never Ignore When It Comes To Workout?  For me, it's legs and chest. As Indian men, we love huge shoulders and that's it, we stop there. Most of us then look like some strange species that has legs made of paper and shoulders of steel. It's very important to have a body that's proportionate and not out of order when you look at it from head to toe.  Plus, having strong legs automatically helps you in building a strong core. Chest happens to be my personal favourite body part to work on. I like it tight and toned and not so huge. Lean is in, and rightfully so!  © Sahil Salathia © Sahil Salathia 3. Natural Fuzz Vs. Waxed/Trimmed Body Hair? I would say it depends on my mood. Sometimes, I like to look like an animal that is not really into fixing body hair. And then, that guy with that trimmed body hair is also me!  I prefer trimming body hair though because it's definitely more hygienic and weather-friendly in a city like Bombay, where I currently live. Waxing is a major no for me. It hurts, man, I have been told. 4. Grooming Essentials - Top 5 Products? 1. My medicated soap called 'Acneguard' that keeps acne under check. Clear skin is a major plus for anybody, be it a man or a woman!  2. Sunscreen/sunblock. Could be any brand as long as the SPF is good enough to save that skin under the sun. 3. B Blunt volumizing leave-in spray for that perfect hairdo. © Sahil Salathia 4. Clinique Aloe shave gel for a good shave. Since it's Aloe Vera based, it really cools the skin down and helps with cuts, if at all. 5. Clinique charcoal face wash for that extra push for a relatively cleaner face and to keep all that Bombay pollution ruining the skin under control.  © Sahil Salathia 5. Shave Down There Or Trim It? I like to trim it mostly. But not that I have never shaved it. So, yup, both...depends on my mood. I'm such a moody guy I tell ya! © Sahil Salathia 6. Best Lighting For Clicking Nudes (Or Just For The Boudoir)? Top light. Body looks amazing. Now, since you are taking nudes, you might as well look your naked best! *winks* © Sahil Salathia 7. Any Last Minute Tip? Just stay happy from within, man! I know it sounds preachy but it's true AF. Meditate if you can take some time out. Don't miss your workouts because they will fix your mental health also and you will obviously look sexier naked. Now, who doesn't want that? Picture Credits: Tanmay Mainkar

7 S-Pen Tips And Tricks About The Galaxy Note 9 Everyone Should Know

The Samsung Galaxy Note9 is here, and it is definitely the fastest and most productive Samsung phone ever. Samsung's Note series has always been known for its S Pen stylus, and every year the company goes on adding a host of ultra-productive features. The capabilities of the S Pen are infinite--right from taking quick notes to using it as a remote, this single stylus has made Note series among the top-selling worldwide.  With the Note 9, Samsung has drastically changed how the S Pen works. It now has its own battery, can perform a lot more than air commands, and runs on Bluetooth LE now. Here's our list of tips and tricks you should know to squeeze the most out the tiny stylus.  1. Unlock Your Phone Via The S Pen © Samsung While the Note 9 has an array of unlocking methods, the new S Pen can also unlock your phone with just a click. To enable the feature, go to Settings > Advanced features > S Pen > Unlock with S Pen remote and select "Unlock with S Pen remote."  This will come in very handy when you're in a presentation and need to unlock the phone quickly. Coming to presentations, the S Pen also comes with remote capabilities, but more on that in the next point.  2. Remote Capabilities © Samsung Like I said earlier, the Note 9 S Pen has its own battery and it charges automatically when you push it in. This battery enables the stylus to act like a remote control, you can control multiple functions of an app via the stylus now. For example, you can use the S Pen as a camera shutter or use it to change slides in a presentation.  For now, the remote functionality is supported by the Camera, Gallery, Media, Chrome, Home Office Editor, and Snapchat.  3. Screen Off Memo This feature is available since the Note 7 and makes use of Samsung's expertise in AMOLED displays. With Off Screen Memo, as soon as you remove the S Pen from its slot, the phone provides a black screen to write on. It's perfect for last minute lists, capturing your thoughts or making notes at a work event. AMOLED displays don't require a constant backlight, hence only the pixels you write on are consuming power. Not only is this option quick, but also saves a lot of power. Everything you note down is saved in Samsung's Note app for you to share or edit later on.  4. Magnifying Glass © YouTube As soon as you remove the S Pen, the air commands menu shows up. Just select the icon with the S Pen, and a rounded-off square that occupies a small box in the screen appears. If you aim the tip of the pen at the area you want to magnify, it shows up in that square. At any time, you can change the magnification between 1.5- to 3X.  5. Customise Air Commands © Samsung Air command is the interface that pops-up for you to tap with the S Pen. To customise this, open Air command and tap the settings cog that appears in the opposite corner. Here you can change the shortcuts, launch any app you have on your phone, or add in the useful Glance feature that's not included as standard. If you have the S Pen in hand, but the Air command icon has vanished or you've turned it off, just press the button on the S Pen as you approach the display.  6. Live Messages © TechRadar Live messages are animated GIFs that record and replay your pen strokes in real time for up to 15 seconds. There's also options for changing how thick the lines are, and a choice of colors. To access live messages, simply take the S Pen out from the device, hit the grey pen icon that pops up, and select “live message.” 7. Translate Via The S Pen There's also a translate option for S Pen. From Air Command select "translate" and go to your mysterious language text and hover over what you want translating. Using the control at the top you can select either a single word or entire paragraphs.

A Die-Hard Fan Interviews Badshah To Know What Makes Him The King Of Indian Rap

A self-proclaimed Badshah fan who followed him from his 'Mafia Mundeer' days, it was only natural for me to hyper-ventilate and check the mirror twice before I entered the room where we then sat face-to-face for an editorial interview. I imagined it to be intriguing, slightly overwhelming and overtly exciting, but the moment I said a 'Hi' to him, the warmth of his smile overshadowed the air conditioning in the studio. Not many people know, but the real name of this crowned king of Bollywood's music scenes is Aditya Prateek Singh Sisodia. Earning a bad name A post shared by O.N.E. OUT NOW! (@badboyshah) on Aug 7, 2018 at 6:40am PDT My first question was the clichéd 'how did music happen because you were studying engineering' but his answer was anything but conventional. 'No, I was actually doing music, and then engineering happened', he laughed as he corrected my question and my perception. He explained that he was always interested in doing music and his parents were super supportive about his decision to pursue the same. My second question was something I always imagined I'd personally ask if I ever get to meet him in person. “Why did you choose the name 'Badshah'?” “I am a big SRK fan, and when I was looking for a stage name for myself, around that time the movie 'Baadshah' released and I thought why not take this name only.” I kind of guessed it but I never knew this was a fact actually! Our conversation then moved to his journey from where he began and his current state of being omnipresent in the music scene today. One might expect that he has a long struggle story to share and there is more depth to it but the king was pretty honest and blunt about it and kept it very short. “I never went to people for work. I was just making my own music and releasing it through my own label. Eventually Bollywood stood up and noticed me.” The best part of his humble journey is that he was working full time in order to invest money in his music career, no godfathers or no money flew in for this self-made star. © Instagram Talking about his biggest critics, he quipped that his sister, his immediate circle of friends and his close knit group of cousins are the first lot who hear his music first hand and give their honest inputs which he values a lot. In case you don't know, he is actually a 'Dilli wala' who lived in Pitampura and even went to St. Stephens for a month before he opted out. His favourite thing about Delhi is the food, no guesses there. My favourite part about the interview began when I asked him to share the whole ideology behind his music. I asked him how the songs are conceived and what the creative process behind it is, including the inspiration to two of my personal favourites, 'Tareefan' and 'Buzz'. “I think of myself as a journalist. I write what I see”, he quickly responded to it.  So he said that he picks up the vibe from his surroundings and finds inspiration from real-life situations. Also, one might think that no party is complete without his music, so probably the rapper is a party lord himself. However, he busted the myth when he told me that he never really parties!  He then went on to tell me that the lyrics in 'Buzz', the line where he starts with 'Okay, Okay Okay, Okay' is actually inspired from Kevin Hart, who he ardently follows and who uses it in some of his songs. 'Tareefan' is a love song for Badshah, not a dance song. The inspiration for this song was also very simple. He said boys get ready quickly and wait for their girl to get ready, who only wants to know how is she looking, so a guy got nothing else to do but say 'hor dass kinniyan tareefan chahida tainu'? I asked him if he has any Bollywood plans for himself and he answered with a big “yes”. A fun fact that he shared with me is that he was offered two projects already which didn't work out. He was offered 'Good News' which later went to Diljit Dosanjh and he was also offered a part in 'Lust Stories', the role which was eventually played by Vicky Kaushal. We all laughed at this new found information and he chimed in. Talking about his future plans, we then spoke about his latest album 'O.N.E' which released today. It has 17 songs but he originally wrote 30 and is super excited about it. His song 'Heartless' from the album has already created a lot of buzz (pun intended!). When I asked him what he would say to so many millennials struggling to balance between getting a degree and pursuing a passion, he had a very practical and simple message for them. “I think you just have to be very smart about it and don't be foolish. Perseverance is very important because music is very liberating. However, you need to see how it will work out, you also have to feed yourself after all. I was working twice as hard when I was earning to invest in my music career.” If there is anything you can take away from this King, then it is the fact that there is so much more to learn from him than just make good music. I hope he keeps entertaining us for the longest time! We sign off and end the interview with a smile, a picture for memory and me beaming with joy as I walk out of the studio.

5 Reasons Why Every Man Should Aspire To Be Like Ted Mosby From 'How I Met Your Mother'

Ted Mosby from 'How I Met Your Mother', is a natural antidote to any dating disaster I've ever experienced in my life.  I mean, after watching the series, the character stuck to me so hard, it was just difficult to live my life without finding a Ted Mosby to be a part of it. And why not? He's just the perfect friend/lover/boyfriend material all rolled into one, that really helps me negate all my dating history, put together!  Honestly, it's just getting from bad to worse out there. The last date I had with a guy, he'd invited me to his apartment to have wine with him because it was going to expire. I mean, seriously? Are you not even going to try anymore? © 20th Television I need a Ted Mosby in my life because he will balance out all the bad karma I've accumulated by going on bad dates most times and also because he's THE MAN. You know, kind, compassionate, funny and loves watching robots and wrestlers fight each other! Everyone needs a Ted in their life. Men women alike. But women more so and subjectively so. Everyone has a different reason for why they need him but here are 5 prominent and relatable reasons as to why women need a Teddie Westside and if you can relate to being the Ted Mosby in your girl's life, then read on: 1. He Is Very Accepting Of Other's Faults He's always accepting of the faults of others, especially his lady love's over the years. They can leave him at the altar, or reject him or even go completely neurotic on him, he will still forgive them or accept them as they are. 2. He's Big On Romance If you really want to be the Ted in someone's life, you need to up your romance game a bit. Remember the time Ted stole a blue French horn for Robin from a restaurant? Or how he tracked down Victoria, even though she didn't leave him with an address to find her? Girls dig that kinda stuff. The unpredictable romantic sorts. 4. He's A Great Friend To Have Around Ted has an exceptionally great knack for maintaining friendships and he always puts his friends first. Be it Lily, Barney, Marshall or even Robin, he lives by 'bro's before ho**', for life and he'd give up just about anything or anyone for his friends. 5. He Takes His Chances By far, Ted is the biggest risk taker I've seen in a character and the kinda risks he takes with women, lands him in a lot of trouble at times. Like when he said 'I love you' to Robin on their first date, or when he'd just dress up in the same costume every year on Halloween to find his 'slutty' pumpkin. 6. He Never Gives Up Very hardly you'll see instances where Ted actually gave up. Like when he had to break-up with Zoey or when he gave up Robin for Barney. But if there is anything he sets his eyes or his mind on, he will never give up on it. So, it's always a bonus to be a Ted Mosby in someone's life and if you think you have all these qualities, then you're already good to go, mate!

Hear From The Masterminds Of 'Magnetic Fields' That's Changing The Face Of Music Fests In India

The Indian landscape serves as the perfect canvas for myriad artists to get inspired, hone their skills and display their talents. The music scene in India has emerged loud and proud over the last few years with music festivals being a huge hit amongst the audience and artists alike. The cheering crowd, mind-numbing to even soulful music, there is something to be said about the shared experience of music festivals. © MensXP One such festival that has touched the hearts of innumerable Indians since its inception in 2014 is the 3-day music carnival that's gotten popular by the name of Magnetic Fields. This three day event of unadulterated contemporary music and arts takes place in the Alsisar Mahal in Rajasthan and conducted its uber successful fifth edition in December last year. Magnetic Fields has surfaced as one of India's premier music events that's as much about experiencing music as it is about serving as a melting pot of futuristic sound and music from all around the world. Spearheading this entire movement of music and art are Munbir and Sarah Chawla who have taken it upon themselves to give India a taste of its own cultural heritage as well as experience the widening horizon of world music all at once. The First Steps © MensXP The idea and concept behind it all was shaped when Munbir and Sarah met in London. Munbir was studying sound production in the UK and Sarah was into organising cultural events and productions. Since Munbir was working closely with artists from the electronic space, they saw the charge spreading fast. This led to their getting together to start an online music magazine that came to be known as 'Wild City'. © MensXP When recession hit UK, they decided to move to India and explore the music and events scene here. Starting from scratch, they began to make inroads into India's love for good music and the Magnetic Fields Festival was born out of this need for Indians to interact with music on a deeper and more personal level in 2013. Here's More On Their Story When the duo launched the first edition of the Magnetic Fields Festival, it was special because since the beginning they've always tried to create something meaningful and maintain it over the subsequent years of production. They admit to having given their all to make this festival a success, be it financially or mentally. Their passion and dedication must have touched a chord with the attendees because looking at the success of the event over the years, Munbir states that things seems to be finally paying off - at least mentally if not financially. © MensXP From having 400 people in attendance in the first year to upscaling that to 4000 in the fifth and moving from 20 tents in the first year to 450 in the latest edition and form selling out their tickets two days before the fest to now those getting sold out in mere 20 minutes, they have come a long way. All The BTS Scoop For You Producing a successful festival of such magnitude takes a lot of effort and Munbir tells us how they begin to plan for the next fest almost as soon as the previous one ends. Right from brainstorming on the kind of content they want, the changes that need to be made to even making the bookings, they always think ahead. Less sleep, longer hours in the office and working on multiple layers, a lot goes into these productions but Munbir has no complaints. © MensXP Talking about why they chose to start Wild City in India, Sarah states that at the core it was always going to do events in India. Even though they started with the idea to bring international artists to the country, they ended up discovering that many supremely talented Indian producers and artists were also looking for a platform. Today, Wild City is much more than an online music magazine - they organize everything from little parties to cultural showcases. That's pretty brilliant, isn't it? What Makes Magnetic Fields Special Right from having predefined and individuals programs to involving the emotions of the audience, they choose the music sessions based on the location and the kind of vibes it attracts.They aim to tell a story through their series of programs right from the moment a visitor wakes up! When they landed in India and explored the music festivals here, they decided to bring their own touch to it and harness the inherent cultural talent that exists in the country and bring it to the forefront. © MensXP Today, after five years of great offerings to the community, Magnetic Fields has come to mean a whole lot to an entire community of music lovers and the duo which to maintain that value within their brand. Having brought their passion and dreams together and turning the two into reality by offering such a fulfilling and entertaining fest to the masses in India, Munbir and Sarah stand as examples for what all can be achieved when you want to make others happy through your venture. What you receive then, is much more than a sense of accomplishment, there is also mutual love and happiness shared by the end of it.
