Cab Driver Refuses To Leave 2 Women, Waits For 1.5 Hours Post Midnight Till They Get Home Safely

Buses and cab services are meant for our convenience, but sadly, many of us think twice and sometimes thrice before sitting in them. At times, we even skip them for reasons that aren't hidden from anyone.  On days when we do take cabs, the first thing our parents tell us is "Share the cab details with us" or "Send us the exact location." But, thanks to Santosh, a lot of people will now feel safer while calling for a cab. Pexels Santosh is an Uber driver, who just like any other ordinary cabbie was doing his job of dropping people to their desired location. But, the reason we're talking about him is extraordinary.  It was around 1 AM when Santosh dropped a woman and her mother at their destination. When he realised that the gate to their residence was shut, he refused to leave them alone and waited with them for 1.5 hours until they got inside their house. The woman took to social media to thank him for his actions.  hey @Uber_India , wanted to tell you about your driver Santosh. Last night the place we were staying had it's gate was closed. It was  1 AM. He refused to let us go & waited for 1.5  hours till we got in. Kudos to him. Mom and I eternally grateful pic.twitter.com/tIjz9n2A8O — Priyashmita Guha (@priyashmita) October 14, 2018 In fact, in her comments, the woman even mentioned how the passenger of his next ride was getting angry, but he said: "I am sorry but I cannot leave them." As a driver, it wasn't his job to wait and could have easily ended his trip and driven away. But, as a human, he did his job and we respect him for that. Honestly, he deserves more than a 5-star rating.  However, Santosh isn't the only hero in our society who is out there protecting women. A few days ago, a Mumbai driver and conductor made the whole bus wait at 1.30 AM in the night, until one of the female passengers found an auto.

UP Cop Saying 'Thain Thain' When His Gun Gets Jammed Is All of Us With Broken Office Laptops

Not all heroes wear capes, some shout 'Thain Thain' to scare the criminals when their pistol gets jammed. We're not talking about a Rajinikanth movie, this actually happened in Uttar Pradesh's Sambhal district.  A team of UP cops were out on an encounter and chasing goons, when they realised their pistols were jammed. Now, this is a major problem and definitely a serious concern. But, fear not when the UP police is here. They had the perfect solution to this problem - shout 'thain thain' instead to scare the criminals.  #WATCH: Police personnel shouts 'thain thain' to scare criminals during an encounter in Sambhal after his revolver got jammed. ASP says, 'words like 'maaro & ghero' are said to create mental pressure on criminals. Cartridges being stuck in revolver is a technical fault'. (12.10) pic.twitter.com/NKyEnPZukh — ANI UP (@ANINewsUP) October 13, 2018 Well, who said you need guns for gunshots when you can do the job by making the sound from your mouth? Speaking to ANI, the ASP said the pistol got jammed due to a technical glitch. He further said, words like 'maaro, maaro, ghero, ghero' create mental pressure on the criminals.  Reportedly, a policeman was injured and the team managed to arrest one of the criminals after shooting him in his leg.  While their mission was successful as they managed to catch the criminal, Twitter had a field day, tripping over the UP cops shouting 'thain thain'.  Up police:- thain thain

Vijay Hazare Trophy: 4 Youngsters Who've Rocked India's Domestic 50-Over Tournament This Season

Ever since leading India to the ICC Under-19 World Cup title, Prithvi Shaw has taken huge strides to establish himself as one of the most exciting young talents in the country. His artistry with the willow was in full display during the U-19 World Cup, which was followed by an impressive stint in the Indian Premier League (IPL) earlier this year. Tipped as the next Sachin Tendulkar, Shaw made a sensational debut for Team India when he smashed a brilliant 134 in the first Test against West Indies in Rajkot. In the process, he became the youngest Indian batsman to score a ton on his Test debut. He, then, followed it up with a quickfire 70 in the first innings of the second Test in Hyderabad. © BCCL While India blanked a hapless Windies 2-0 in the Test series, it was undoubtedly the 18-year-old who stood out amongst some of the biggest names in international cricket. Scoring 237 runs in three innings against the visiting side, Shaw deservingly bagged the Man of the Series award in his maiden stint with the senior team. However, as Shaw continues to hog the limelight, there are other youngsters who are quietly going about their business in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy.  With bare minimum spotlight and no fanfare, these young guns have taken the tournament by storm - once again highlighting the immense talent on display in India's domestic circuit: Rahul Desraj Chahar © Twitter The younger brother of Team India's upcoming seamer Deepak Chahar, Rahul rose to prominence earlier this year when Mumbai Indians shelled out a whopping Rs 1.9 crore (19 times of his base price) during the Indian Premier League (IPL) auctions. While he didn't get enough game time to prove his mettle, the 19-year-old has taken the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy by storm.  Far away from the spotlight and fanfare, the 19-year-old has been quietly going about his business in the domestic 50-over tournament. Plying his trade with Rajasthan, the youngster was seen bamboozling the opposition batsmen with his mystery leg spin. In the nine matches he played, the young leggie claimed 20 scalps and is currently placed third in the list of leading wicket-takers this season. Though his side crashed out of the tournament, Rahul's brilliant outing surely makes him one of the most exciting young talents in the country. Shubman Gill © BCCL Arguably one of the highly-rated talents in the list of India's next generation cricketers, Shubman Gill has been busy impressing everyone one tournament after another. His penchant for big runs during India's triumphant U-19 World Cup run was in full display. And then, he justified his Rs 1.8-crore price tag with some sublime performances for the Kolkata Knight Knight Riders in this year's IPL season. Continuing his marauding run, the 19-year-old has been seen going hammer and tongs in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy. Playing for Punjab, the right-hander amassed 418 runs including three fifties and a hundred in the seven matches he played this season. His brilliant knock of 115 runs was the reason why Punjab managed to edge past Himachal Pradesh in one of their group games. While Punjab could only manage to win 4 out of their eight matches before bowling out of the tournament, young Shubman's artistry with the willow undeniably reminded everyone what this young lad brings to the table. Varun Chakravarthy © TNPL While prominent names in the domestic circuit continue to garner spotlight, there have been players like Varun Chakravarthy who continue to lurk in the shadows despite proving their mettle, time and again. His spin bowling prowess was in full display during the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) where he established himself as Siechem Madurai Panthers' secret weapon. If his impressive TNPL outing got people talking, Chakravarthy's exploits in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy has once again highlighted his ability to perform for his team. Playing for Tamil Nadu, the rising star has taken 22 wickets in nine appearances this season. His five-wicket haul against the Services also paved way for Tamil Nadu's 83-run win over Services in one of their group games.  Though he is regarded as an all-rounder, it is Chakravarthy's majestic spin bowling that has allowed him to turn heads in the domestic circuit. From bowling a straighter one, flipper to a zooter, this budding cricketer boasts it all (five cunning variations in total). Ishan Kishan © Twitter A wicket-keeper and left-handed opening batsman from Jharkhand, young Ishan Kishan has come a long way since leading India to the runners-up position at the 2016 U-19 World Cup in Bangladesh. His attacking batting style and brilliant glovework earned him an IPL debut after Gujarat Lions secured his services during the auctions in 2016. He was then roped in by Mumbai Indians and has gone on to become a vital cog for Rohit Sharma's side. Kishan's ability to aid his team once again came to the fore in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy. The youngster has been seen in a sublime form while playing for Jharkhand in the tournament. In eight matches he has played so far, the 20-year-old has scored 384 runs including three fifties and a hundred this season.  Leading Jharkhand in the tournament, the youngster played a captain's knock in a Group C match against Assam where he scored a sensational 91-ball 139 to secure an eight-wicket win for his side.

Just Like On WhatsApp, You'll Soon Be Able To 'Unsend' Messages On Facebook Messenger As Well

Not long ago, WhatsApp rolled out a feature that let you delete sent messages for a particular time period. This 'unsend message' feature comes in extremely handy when you send the wrong person a text, and end up apologising profusely. In this case, Facebook could soon be rolling out the "unsend" feature for Messenger, that would allow users to retract sent messages not only from their inboxes but also from the entire chat thread.   Tech tipster Jan Manchun Wong tweeted screenshots of the feature running in the Android version. Jan dug through the apps update code and came across a new feature addition that indicates there's a 'time limit'- giving users only a certain amount of time after they send a message to unsend it.  Facebook Messenger is finally working on "Unsend Message" in the app for everyone!

Tip @Techmeme pic.twitter.com/5OtQmyID3 — Jane Manchun Wong (@wongmjane) October 12, 2018 Currently, Messenger users are only able to delete messages from their inbox, though the sender/recipient will be able to see the message in his/her inbox. This feature first came to focus when CEO Mark Zuckerberg was able to delete messages from the inbox of various recipients in April this year.  When you press and hold on to the message, an 'unsend' button pops up next to 'delete'. The latter option will only remove the message from your end, while the unsend button will ensure that the message is removed from the receiver's end as well.  © Reuters On other news, WhatsApp is also bound to get a new update that will alter the time period in which one has to delete sent messages. Currently, messages can be called back within 1 hour, 8 minutes and 16 seconds of being sent, WhatsApp will now be extending this time frame to 13 hours, 8 minutes, and 16 seconds.   LIMITS UPDATED!

WhatsApp has updated the "Recipient limit".
What does it mean? If you delete a message for everyone, but the recipient won't receive the revoke request within 13h, 8m, 16s (maybe because the phone was off), the message will **not** be revoked.
..(1/2) — WABetaInfo (@WABetaInfo) October 11, 2018 According to WABetaInfo, the change is intended to be a protection against modded users that revoke messages sent weeks, months and years ago.  It is unclear whether the new change has already been implemented for all WhatsApp users or it will take some time to reach the entire WhatsApp user base.  The same remains the case for Messenger. A timeline on the feature roll-out isn't officially available from Facebook yet, but we expect it to hit the app stores in the coming weeks.

Congress Trolled For Congratulating The 'Men-In-Blue' After They Won A Test Match

Seeing an inaccurate tweet and then people trolling that very tweet is something we see every day, but honestly, it never gets old, especially when an entire political party is getting trolled for one hilariously wrong tweet.  India recently had a second straight win against West Indies, sweeping the two-match Test series 2-0 with an impressive 10-wicket victory. Congratulatory messages and celebrations were in order, obviously, but Congress totally missed the mark in their tweet. Congratulations to the men-in-blue for the 2-0 Test series win against West Indies. #IndvWI ð pic.twitter.com/y3uDtezVs5 — Congress (@INCIndia) October 14, 2018 Does anyone see any 'blue' in the picture or is there something wrong with my eyes? (Before anyone comments with any hate, yes, the Indian cricket team is called the men-in-blue and yes, it's not that big of a goof-up, but just remember that people on Twitter are very unforgiving, so let's all just enjoy some good trolling, thanks) Yes Rahul, were you behind this tweet? Kuch bhi ðð.....
Man in blue tab bolte hain jab ODI cricket ho...

Y account bhi माननà¥à¤¯ शà¥à¤°à¥ @RahulGandhi chala rahe hain kya — SUBHAM SHARMA (@subhamparas) October 14, 2018 Exactly. Men in Blue ?

Divya spanda ji this is test match..... — Randhir Chauhan (@RandhirChauhan6) October 14, 2018 Yes, it's that obvious. Blue तॠपहनॠहॠनहॠहà¥, सफà¥à¤¦ पहनॠहà¥à¥¤ — Renuka Kolkata (@renukacal) October 14, 2018 Yep. Men-in- Blue ð¬ððð...Test match ki team white dress mai h.ð.Abe kyo itna pi lete h...Jo colour hi nahi pata chalte — Vinod Solanki RAJPUT (@tanmay_vinod) October 15, 2018 Two minutes starting now. 2 min silence for color blindness of INC IT cell — shuchi (@shuchi_sun) October 15, 2018 That emoji is perfect for this. "Men in blue"?????ð¤ð¤ð¤

I didn't see a single player in blue through out the match... #PappuMutra ke sevan kam karo congressiyon ð — Nimbu Masala ð®ð³ð®ð³ (@NimbuMassala) October 15, 2018 I feel like they realized their mistake, but it was too late to take down the tweet and as we all know, Twitter will never give us the edit button ever.  Whatever the case may be, who doesn't enjoy some light-hearted trolling? So, we should actually thank Congress for giving us some laughs! Also, kids, think before you tweet.

Need Something New To Binge-Watch This Long Weekend? Here Are 5 Addictive Web Series To Check Out

Not everyone is a fan of comedy-drama, there are some of us who live on shows which knock the wind out of us with their unimaginable storyline.  We long for plots that keep us on the edge of our couch, for well-charted out characters that keep our eyes glued to the screen, and the twists that keep us coming back for more, again and again.  This sounds like the perfect plan for the long weekend to us. You know, the ones who prefer to stay at home and chill, rather than leave the comforts of our home to appear. If you are just like us, and totally believe in taking your mind for a spin when given the chance, then these 5 thrilling web series will prove to be the best way of spending the long weekend. 1. Sense8 - Netflix This is one hell of a series, that's wrapped in the most meaty plot. The story follows the lives of eight strangers (Sensates) who suddenly begin to experience each other's lives through the power of telepathy. Each one of them is located in a different city around the world, but their lives are connected to a point where they can not only read each other's thoughts but can also access each other's knowledge, language and skills. The gripping story unveils the many dangers they are set to face, and if or how they fight their demons. 2. Absentia - Prime Video The journey of an FBI agent who was on an official mission to hunt down a notorious serious killer, but goes missing instead. When she is found after six years she doesn't remember any details about the time she was gone. From the loss of her memory to finding herself wound up in a new series of murders, this quick-paced drama manages to keep you on your toes at all times. Your guesses at solving the mystery, and putting the pieces of the puzzle together, will always fail. Yet, you'll find yourself moving on to the next episode. 3. Altered Carbon - Netflix Set in the far away future, this story is sure to test your brain cells and spike up your endorphin levels. The basic premise of the story is that people's consciences have been downloaded to form stacks, which can be shifted to new bodies or “sleeves”. The first season begins with Takeshi Kovacs, a former U.N. soldier, resurfacing in a different sleeve of a private investigator, to solve the murder of the man who hires him. The fascinating plot promises solid rising action, while the actors look promising in their on-screen characters. However, it's the intricacies of the murder mystery that promises you a ride of a lifetime. 4. Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan - Prime Video Another thriller that has the audience hooked is 'Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan' which is based on the fictional characters from 'Ryanverse'. The series opens with Ryan, a CIA analyst, who gets caught in the tricky ways of fate and duty and is launched on a personal escapade to track down a dangerous Islamic terrorist. The cast is marvellous, the story is gripping, but it is the titular character and his amaze-balls ways that steal the show. 5. Dark This story might be hard to watch, but we promise you that it's even more difficult to stop watching. Shot in German, and in a gloomy setting which underlines its title, the story traces the lives of people living in the small town of Winden. The plot is full of cheating spouses, secrets, gruesome killings, and dead birds falling from the sky. The perpetual darkness is ominous of the many hidden mysteries, that are to unravel the ugly deeds of the last three generations. Get ready for a mind-boggling ride with these shows. We suggest keeping some snacks and good company handy while watching these.

10 Outfits From The India Fashion Week That Can Be Your Style Inspiration For The Next Party

What can possibly be a better source of inspiration for outfits, other than the mother-ship itself, also known as 'Fashion Week'? What you see at the fashion week today, appears on the street tomorrow. So obviously, when we wanted some inspiring party outfits, that was our prime source.  Here, We have compiled a list of 10 party outfits that can definitely prove to be inspiring:  1. An avant-garde, playful, vibrantly printed/patterned/sequined shirt paired with high-waisted pants will never fail to make a strong statement. © Tarun Chawla 2. If you want a bold, but classy look that will definitely make heads turn, pair a bold printed/logo shirt with checked pants. Mismatch? Yes. But that's the point! © Tarun Chawla 3. Wear black from head to toe, and wear a bright, vibrant, embroidered jacket on top. Super sophisticated. © MensXP 4. A structured, plaid jacket paired with relaxed pants will always work in your favour. Accessorise appropriately with eyewear and a watch. © Tarun Chawla 5. Monochrome is always impressive. Plus, if your shirt is as playful as Vikram Bajaj's here, you can go ahead and take off your jacket on the dance floor. © MensXP © MensXP 6. High-waisted blue/black overalls with a strategically placed pop of colour, accessorized with a fun bag. Nothing can go wrong with this one. © Tarun Chawla 7. The good ol' fitted blazer will never go out of fashion. Accessorize carefully with pocket squares, tie pins, statement sunnies, and a smartwatch. © Tarun Chawla 8. Want maximum impact with minimum effort? Just wear a bright, playful, printed Cuban-collared shirt. © Tarun Chawla 9. Want something for the party that also doubles up as comfortable street-wear? Go for the classic fitted white T-shirt and blue jeans combo. © Tarun Chawla 10. A smartly layered outfit with a Bomber jacket and a pair of ripped jeans is extremely versatile, and will always have your back, irrespective of your body shape. © Tarun Chawla

Samsung Galaxy A7 Review: Bringing A Great Triple Camera Setup To The Midrange Segment

2018 has been one of the most interesting years for mobile technology, not because we saw mind-boggling flagships with groundbreaking features, but also these features slowly trickled down to the midrange segment. Companies have long focused only on developing markets like the USA and Europe, now it's time for the developing regions.  It's no surprise that budget and midrange segments constitute a majority of the sales in markets like India, now that we've seen aggressively priced phones for the last few years, what more can makers do to lure buyers? Add new features, even if they are just a gimmick. The notch is a prime example, but many worthwhile additions like the in-display fingerprint scanner and top-of-the-line processors have made their way to the midrange segment.   While we've seen companies like Xiaomi, OPPO, Vivo, and Huawei go all-out in terms of pricing and features offered this year, Samsung has been oddly silent. Not for long though, with the A7 (2018), things are changing, and the behemoth is finally feeling the heat from the competition.  The triple camera lens setup on the rear is the A7's forte, and also the most marketed feature. The Huawei P20 Pro also has one, and it has created a storm in the mobile photography world. Is the A7's setup able to actually perform, or just a gimmick? Let's find out:  1. Design and Hardware:  © MensXP When you first look at the phone, it has an eerily similar design to we've seen on all other Samsung phones. But, it all changes when you look closely. The back is made of glass and has a mirrored finish, giving it a very premium yet subtle feel. The front has an average chin and top, but the bezels are huge by Samsung standards.   For years, Samsung has stressed on its Infinity Display technology, no mention of that here. I wouldn't complain though, in the end, the bezels are tolerable and the 18.5:9 notch-less display is stunning thanks to a 6-inch Super AMOLED panel. While the company did cut corners in the front design, the back makes up for it.   The display is class-leading, colours are perfectly saturated, brightness is sufficient, and viewing angles are exemplary as well.  © MensXP Ergonomically speaking, the device has a solid feel but is very slippery thanks to the glass back. The power button cum fingerprint scanner has been shifted to the right side and is perfectly located for your thumb to reach quickly.  There's a minor indent in the body to help you find the scanner easily and the volume rockers sit just above it. You may end up pressing the volume rockers at the beginning instead of the power button, but you'll have a hang of it soon. Even though the scanner is a lot thinner now, it is fast and accurate.   The speaker, a micro-USB port, and the 3.5mm headphone jack sit on the bottom, while the SIM card and microSD card slot are on the left. The triple camera set up on the back is slightly protruded and barely wobbles the phone.  2. Performance:  © MensXP The phone is powered by an octa-core Exynos 7885 SoC clocked up to 2.2Ghz. It is accompanied with 4 or 6GB RAM and 64 or 128GB internal storage. In simpler terms, the processor is on-par with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 series and supports 4K video recording as well.  Honestly, this is where the phone disappoints. Even if we don't consider the POCO F1 and its Snapdragon 845 SoC, the A7 lags and struggles a lot more than the Nokia 7 Plus and its Snapdragon 660 SoC. While it did get regular tasks like browsing, social media, and entertainment pretty well, you open Snapchat and the skirmish begins.  Playing games like PUBG is even more disappointing, as the frame drops are frequent and the overall experience is rarely smooth. I'd say the issue isn't just because of the chipset, as the Samsung UI on top of stock Android is also to be partially blamed, although more on that later.  © MensXP For a normal joe, the phone is perfectly fine. But if you intend to have above average multi-tasking, keeping multiple browser tabs open, or gaming, you shouldn't consider this phone. The phone has a 3300mAh battery that does a fabulous job of getting you through a full day of heavy usage with data connectivity switch on all the time.  While the phone takes almost 2 hours to fully charge, it makes up for the long charge time by heavily optimising background apps and the standby time is insane.  3. Software:  © MensXP The phone ships with Samsung Experience 9.0, built on top of Android 8.0 Oreo. It brings a host of new features like gesture navigation, always-on display, smart view, biking mode, multi-window, and Bixby. While I do appreciate the addition of many of these features, the company hasn't been able to make sure that these don't hinder with the day-to-day running of the phone.  The UI often stutters and pushing out updates for such a heavily customized skin is going to be a daunting task for the company. To add to this, the phone ships with a list of bloatware apps like Amazon, Microsoft Office apps, and Samsung's own version of all utility apps.  Ultimately, the UI is a very subjective thing. Many prefer the clean UX of stock Android, while many do appreciate the add-ons Samsung Experience has to offer.  4. Camera:  © MensXP This is the most interesting part of the phone and Samsung has cut no corners. The rear has a 24-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel wide angle lens, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. They are vertically located and are fully operational via the Samsung Camera app only.   The primary lens is able to capture sharp pictures that tend to look slightly oversaturated, but that can be toned down. The white balance is perfect and auto-focus is quick. To capture pictures with a bokeh effect, just switch to the Live Focus mode and you can control the depth of the picture, even after you've clicked it.   The phone comes with a plethora of modes like Beauty, Scene Optimiser, Hyperlapse, and Slow Motion. The portrait mode is very well exported when clicking in well-lit conditions, but often lapses when the person is wearing a headgear, or the surrounding isn't easily distinguishable. The Live Focus feature though is just one part of the story.  © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP This is the first phone in the price segment to feature a wide-angle lens, and it's too good to be true. The wide-angle lens has a 120 degree field of view and can be toggled with just one click. The pictures captured are sharp, the colours are sublime, and the amount of details it can capture is fascinating. If you travel a lot and are looking for the best way to capture the maximum amount of landscape, this phone can be your best friend.  In low-light, the focus tends to be too slow, and the pictures often come out blurry. The LED flash has a slightly warmer tone, giving the images a more natural look. HDR can be set to auto and it does a pretty good job as well. On the front, the phone has a 24-megapixel selfie shooter that works splendidly in daylight but fails miserably in even slightly dim areas.  This is definitely not a selfie phone and has been made for the photography enthusiasts out there, who'd like to play around with the fisheye effect of the wide-angle lens. Overall, no, the triple camera setup isn't just a gimmick. It works, and the Ultra Wide pictures are mesmerizing. Even though the Live Focus feature disappoints sometimes, when it works, it's flawless. And for the artists out there, the Pro mode is going to come extremely handy.  © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP 5. The Final Say:   © MensXP For a starting price of Rs 23,990, the A7 is a very well balanced phone. The wide angle lens is something that helps it stand out, while all other features come with a set of their own pros and cons. Compare this phone to the POCO F1, except for the raw processing power, and the A7 excels at all other departments, including design, display, and camera.  The phone gets everything right for the normal joe. It has a 3.5mm headphone jack, fast fingerprint scanner, excellent battery life, expandable storage, and dual-SIM setup. The software is something the end user needs to thoroughly think about.  Are you actually going to like the Samsung Experience or are you better off with an Android One like Nokia 7 Plus?

4 Widely Demonised Foods That Do Not Make People Fat

You may have often heard a lot of fake gurus, like your desi gym trainers or the know-it-all friend with a slightly better body than you, always preaching about how certain foods are good and how certain foods are bad.  They go on about how some foods make you lose weight while the others will make you fat. Or how eating at particular times of the day will be better than others. In this piece, I will cover some of these often blamed fat-gaining foods that people have no basis for blaming:  1) Diet Soda Or Diet Drinks © Pixabay Diet sodas or diet drinks have absolutely ZERO calories. Zero calories = Zero chances of gaining fat. Yet there are certain individuals who will hold the torch of pseudo-expertise and claim that it does otherwise.  Now, getting adequate water for hydration should always be a priority for everyone, irrespective of them dieting or not but an occasional diet drink or two won't harm them or make them fat, to say the least. Diet drinks can rather help you curb those sweet cravings without consuming a shit ton of calories. 2) White Carbs © Pixabay Eat brown rice for fat loss. Eat brown bread over white bread. Instead, don't be an idiot and think logically. When you compare it in terms of calories, the brown varieties are no better than the white ones. Both of them have almost identical macronutrients and calories. From a fat loss perspective, the calories are what matters. And yes, from a health perspective, eating fibrous carbohydrates are beneficial but just saying brown over white is outright misinformed and identical. If you enjoy white rice, go for white rice. 3) Red Meat © Pixabay People often also go to lengths saying red meat makes you fat and white meat is rather beneficial or makes you lean. Claims like these are what often miss the point. From a weight loss/fat loss perspective, it comes down to the calories. Not a food in isolation. Per 100 grams, yes red meat will have higher calories as it has more fat. Again, that is not an issue if you trim off the meat or go for leaner cuts of the same. And say if you pan sear 100 grams of red meat without oil or fat, or eat 100 grams of chicken and cook that with a tablespoon of fat, it will all become the same in terms of calories and macronutrients. 4) Breakfast Cereal © Pixabay Now, this gentle and super tasty thing is demonised as if it came right from Satan's belly. But again, even here, it breaks down to how many calories you are consuming from it. If you overeat and overreach your calorie limit, you will see fat gain. Otherwise, there's nothing wrong with it any which way. Author bio: Pratik Thakkar is the co-founder and director of GetSetGo Fitness, an online fitness company.

Kangana Ranaut Lashes Out At Karan Johar & Shabana Azmi For Their Silence On The #Metoo Movement

The #MeToo movement in Bollywood now has all the skeletons pouring out from the closet, with women coming up and sharing their assault stories.  While Tanushree Dutta led the bold wave which led to an avalanche of voices, the industry has not been able to escape from celebs being called out.  Kangana Ranaut has accused 'Queen' director Vikas Bahl of misconduct with her and also extended support to a fellow employee of Phantom Production, who accused the director of harassment as well. © Instagram In a recent interview, Kangana also called out Hrithik Roshan and demanded that he should be punished.  The actress never holds on to criticism and is known for her brutal honesty as well. She has now questioned the silence of noted celebrities like Shabana Azmi and Karan Johar, who have been silent over the #MeToo wave in Bollywood.  “Where are people like Karan Johar and Shabana Azmi?' These people should also come out. Karan Johar has views about gym looks and airport looks. He tweets ten times about it. What about this? This is their identity. This is their bread and butter. When the film industry is going through such an important shift, where are they?" she said in the interview. © Instagram Kangana and Karan's war of words can be traced back to the time when she called him out for preaching nepotism and spoke her mind when she appeared on his chat show.  The actress wants people to speak up and that makes complete sense. Names like Sajid Khan, Alok Nath And Kailash Kher have already come up and are under the radar, and looks like this wave is going to wash up even more names.

The 'Avengers 4' Trailer Description Has Us Wishing It Was May 2019 Already

If you still feel personally victimized by the ending of 'Avengers: Infinity War', raise your hand. If you are still desperately waiting for literally any information about 'Avengers 4', raise your hand. Well, there's not anything about the first one, but if you agreed to the second one, your prayers may have just been answered. After waiting for months and wondering if all our favourite characters will come back or not, we finally have something related to 'Avengers 4' and it's honestly the only thing you need to make your Monday blues go away. A detailed description of the 'Avengers 4' trailer is here but the only catch is that no one knows if it's for real or not, since it's not 'official'. But, since all Marvel fans have been deprived of any knowledge about the next movie, we'll just latch on to this for now, because we're that desperate for 'Avengers 4'. If we believe the mysterious Reddit post – that doesn't exist anymore – there seem to be a lot of fan theories that will be proven correct in the trailer and the movies.  Here's the detailed description of all the things that will supposedly appear in the trailer, everything from a damaged gauntlet to a Tony Stark-Steve Rogers reunion to the soul world and quantum realm. Here it goes! “The trailer starts off showing the damaged Infinity Gauntlet in a field on the farm planet. As the camera focuses in on the Gauntlet, we hear Tony's voice: “We were destined to lose.” Epic music score starts. The Quinjet is shown landing in a Wakandan wasteland as we hear Steve Rogers say: “We have come so far.” Tony and Nebula step off the jet as the remaining Avengers approach. Steve has a look of relief and says: “Tony”. Tony, seemingly defeated, shakes his head and gives a friendly smirk back to Cap. Marvel Studios Logo appears. The Iron Man and Captain America reunion we deserve! The next will be a hashtag throwback to the first Avengers movie. Well, at least Loki is there, let's all appreciate that. “We get a glimpse of the Battle of New York from 2012 Avengers. Loki is shown looking shocked and baffled as he is on top of the Stark tower. There is a flash of a blue light as the camera pans back. (Cuts to black) Next, we see the Wakandan throne with M'Baku at the helm. He's surrounded by his new king's guard. (A mix of the hill tribe and Dora Milaje). Shuri and Banner are seen working on a new project in the lab. Black Widow, in full gear, is in Hawkeye's family home from Age of Ultron. Basically, everything is thrown all over the place and broken. Nat is studying some type of map with multiple photos and locations on it. A quick shot of Thanos is shown with a long sword, walking down an alleyway in New York City. The next shot is a dark hooded figure with glowing eyes, aiming a bow and arrow before shooting towards the camera.” Hawkeye is back! “(1-2 visuals of the Quantum Realm) Scott Lang (no suit) is shown running through a park dodging explosions. (Shot of Space) Thor and Valkyrie are aboard a Kree ship. Thor says: “If the stories are true, you're our universe's last hope. If such a thing even exists anymore”. The next shot is an older, determined Tony Stark walking through the new SHIELD HQ (Avengers Facility in upstate New York). He's in full SHIELD attire and carrying an orange briefcase. Banner (wearing spandex) is seen running from something, looking terrified. The next shot is Ant-Man appearing out of a flash of light and landing in a desolate place. We see it from his point of view from inside his helmet. He looks left to right and to his left again and says: “What in the-“. Well, looks like Scott managed to get out of the Quantum Realm, but the real question is how? “We see Captain Marvel floating with her fists on fire and her eyes lit up. Thanos in the soul stone with young Gamora screaming at him, Loki and Thor fighting off Chitauri together and Tony handing Steve a brand new shield in the Wakandan throne room. (Cuts back to Tony and Scott) Tony opens the orange briefcase as Scott hands him an illuminated bracelet. Tony asks: “How?… Is this even possible?” Iron Man and Ant-Man are shown travelling through the Quantum Realm. Tony and Scott are back in the battle of New York from 2012. The final shot before the title reveal is an Infinity Stone disappearing from Thanos' damaged gauntlet. He abruptly gets up and puts on his armour. His face goes from extremely infuriated to a menacing smile.” It all goes to 'The Avengers', time to rewatch it for the thousandth time. Did Tony and Scott manage to destroy an infinity stone by going back in time? “Title reveal: Avengers: Annihilation” We know the title also now apparently. “Stinger: The Hulk is training at the new SHIELD facility with Black Widow and Steve. Steve notices that Hulk has been training non-stop as of late, so he asks why. Hulk responds in Banner's normal voice with: “My rematch is coming real soon, I can feel it!” Looks like The Hulk is finally back, good for him! While we don't know if this is real or not, it sounds so exciting and interesting that I really hope it's true. Plus, the time travelling will also explain how everyone comes back to life, because let's be real, they will. I mean, we can't have a Spider-Man movie without Spider-Man and a Black Panther movie without Black Panther. Marvel, just give us the trailer already, we deserve it after that heart-breaking 'Infinity War' ending.

Shashi Tharoor Lays Down Guidelines For Men To Act In The Times Of #Metoo

"The #MeToo controversy has at least made men more conscious of their behaviour & women of their rights," said Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor in a series of tweets, as the #MeToo movement continues to gain momentum in India.  What started as an allegation by Tanushree Dutta against Nana Patekar, has now turned into a raging movement, which has left the whole nation fuming with anger as more names continue to pop up every day.  © Twitter On days when he is not busy giving social media tongue-twister words like 'floccinaucinihilipilification', he is busy giving his opinion on hot, relevant issues, and this thread is one such example.  Reacting to the ongoing movement, Tharoor on Sunday, posted a series of tweets in support of all the women who are coming forward with their stories. He wrote, "The #MeToo issue is about more than creepy sexual behaviour; it's about exploiting a power differential -- producers/directors>actors, editors>reporters, bosses>employees. Victims were told "not to make it an issue" in order to preserve their careers & reputations. Monstrous." The #MeToo issue is about more than creepy sexual behaviour; it's about exploiting a power differential -- producers/directors>actors, editors>reporters, bosses>employees. Victims were told "not to make it an issue" in order to preserve their careers & reputations. Monstrous. — Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) October 15, 2018 For those saying that these allegations are false, he said, "given that power equation, the best weapon victims have is to shame their tormentors by public exposure. Where charges are totally unfounded, the truth will emerge. But it takes a lot for women to come out &the wealth of detail suggests most of the #MeToo accusations are real." Given that power equation, the best weapon victims have is to shame their tormentors by public exposure. Where charges are totally unfounded, the truth will emerge. But it takes a lot for women to come out &the wealth of detail suggests most of the #MeToo accusations are real. — Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) October 15, 2018 Tharoor also wrote about gender sensitisation in homes, schools and workplaces; and how the next challenge is to instil a culture of true respect for the dignity and autonomy of women. The #MeToo controversy has at least made men more conscious of their behaviour & women of their rights. The next challenge is to instil in society a culture of true respect for the dignity & autonomy of women. That needs real gender sensitization in homes, schools, & workplaces. — Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) October 15, 2018 From Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl, to Rajat Kapoor and Sajid Khan; many prominent personalities have found their names in the list of sexual offenders. Sadly, with each passing day, this list only continues to grow.

Diego Maradona Attacks Lionel Messi, Warns Football Fans Against Worshipping Him Like A God

Arguably one of the greatest players of all time, Lionel Messi has probably won everything there is in the world of football. From smashing goal-scoring records to winning coveted trophies, the Argentine has become one of the highly sought after players in club football. And, the fact that he has won the prestigious Ballon d'Or on a record-tying five occasions goes on to show how good he has been in the past decade. But, despite shattering one record after another in club football, Messi's prolific career is often marred with his inability to win a prominent trophy with Argentina. The Barcelona talisman has often come close to bagging a trophy for his country, but somehow he has always found himself on the losing side - something that continues to dent his reputation as the GOAT. The latest criticism for Messi came from his fellow countryman and footballing great Diego Maradona. The former Argentina footballer, who has shared a good rapport with Messi, hit out at the Barca forward while claiming that he is not a leader on the pitch and should not be considered a footballing God. © Reuters Highlighting Messi's contrasting fortunes with Barcelona and Argentina, Maradona claimed: "We shouldn't deify Messi any longer," Maradona said in an interview with Fox Sports. "He's Messi when he plays for Barcelona. Messi is Messi when he wears that shirt and he's another Messi with Argentina. He's a great player but he's not a leader. It's useless trying to make a leader out of a man who goes to the toilet 20 times before a game, he added." Maradona said in an interview with Fox Sports.  Messi has spent his entire professional career with Barcelona, where he has won 33 trophies, including nine La Liga titles, four UEFA Champions League titles, and six Copa del Reys. A prolific goalscorer and a creative playmaker, the 31-year-old holds the records for most official goals scored in La Liga (388), a La Liga season (50), a club football season in Europe (73), a calendar year (91), El Clasico (26), as well as those for most assists in La Liga (151) and the Copa América (11). © Reuters But, when compared with his stint with Argentina, Messi has struggled to replicate his club success with his national team. He has been on the losing side in all four of his finals with Argentina - three in Copa America and at the 2014 World Cup. To make matters worse, he has not scored in four World Cup knockout stages, while his outing with Argentina in the recently-concluded World Cup once again left his fans disappointed.  Argentina, with a new-look side, have enjoyed a three-match unbeaten run since their early exit in Russia. They recently defeated Iraq 4-0 in an international friendly, but Lionel Scaloni's men will face a sterner test when they take on Brazil sans Messi on 16th October.

Let's Keep It Real: Come To Terms With These 5 Harsh Facts Before Starting A Fat Loss Journey

Losing fat isn't rocket science, but it sure does take a lot of heart and will to completely transform the body.  Just like we keep the sugar coating away at MensXP Health, this article lists out 5 truths about a person's fat loss journey. 1) It Takes Time Heard the saying that good things take time? This holds especially true when it comes to dieting and achieving low levels of body fat. The process is not that quick. All those 6-weeks to shred or 12-week transformation programs do not really work. At least not in the long term! You may end up losing a lot of body fat during this time if you resort to extreme measures, but these so-called transformations won't stick. © Thinkstock 2) You Will Lose Some Of Your Lean Body Mass Not too good to read, I know.  But as your diet progresses and you get leaner and leaner, some of your lean body mass will be lost. The speed of your fat loss will also determine lean body mass losses. The faster you try to strip your body fat/weight off, all the more lean body mass would be lost.  That is because it is easier for your body to break down muscle tissue for energy when energy intake (calories) is severely restricted. 3) Your Energy Levels Will Be Lower  As your caloric intake would be restricted, your body will do its best to save as much energy as it can.  That is because your body sees your fat loss diet as a starvation signal and adapts accordingly. The survival mechanism will kick in and your body will reduce its energy expenditure both consciously and sub-consciously. This means, making you a bit lazier and subconsciously making decisions like taking the elevator instead of the stairs. Not moving from the chair for longer hours during work and so on. © Pixabay 4) There Will Be Progress Plateaus  Getting to single digits of body fat is not smooth sailing. There will be periods of stalls and plateaus during your diet and these are the most testing periods. This will be the time, when you will be tested and will find yourself asking if it really is worth the effort? It will suck seeing those plateaus and your mental resolve will be tested to a very great extent during this phase. 5) Tracking Will Become All The More Important  The measures that are relatively unimportant during the beginning of your fat loss journey will soon become all the more important as you keep progressing. Bodybuilding or achieving body fat levels of bodybuilders or physique athletes is hard. As you get leaner, all those tiny details like food measures to the accurate gram, cooking oil to the gram, tracking of calories, tracking of body weight, tracking of measurements, tracking of daily steps walked for your NEAT levels, etc. will hold a lot of importance. Author bio: Pratik Thakkar is the co-founder and director of GetSetGo Fitness, an online fitness company. He is regarded as someone who will make it easy for you to understand the process by putting things in the right context and providing science-based recommendations for natural bodybuilding.

Google Is Working On A Project That Will Let One Play High-End Console Games On A Browser

The title sounds like a clickbait? Well, it isn't. Google is actually working on a project dubbed 'Project Strem' and it intends to let you play high-end console games right on your Chrome browser. The project is already out in beta and directly beams games to your Chrome web browser. For the project, Google has teamed up with game developer Ubisoft and is currently allowing beta testers to play the recently released Assassin's Creed: Odyssey for free. But, the catch here is that you will be actually able to play the game depending on your internet service provider.  In a nutshell, the concept behind this is game streaming. Instead of processing the game locally on your computer, the data is processed at a remote server and streamed to you.  © Digital Trends For the gaming experience to actually feel like a console, a solid minimum 15Mbps internet connection is required, and Google is officially recommending 25Mbps. Even the latency needs to be taken care of and should be lower than 40 ms along with just 5 per cent data transmission loss. If you are able to get yourself a decent internet connection, the game is all yours to enjoy.   Obviously, you can't expect the game to churn out high frames per second right now and it currently runs at about 30fps, anywhere between HD and Full HD. Project Stream isn't the only attempt at cloud-based gaming though, Nvidia GeForce Now and PlayStation Now aim to accomplish the same feat. A lot of journalists were given the opportunity to test out the gaming experience and the response has been positive.   Digital Trends says "It delivers a consistent, smooth gaming experience, all in your Chrome browser. But don't hold funeral rites for traditional consoles just yet." The most interesting part is, the game can also be played on Chromebook, all you need is a working Chrome browser and a solid internet connection.  © Project Stream Even you sign up to be a beta tester for Project Stream by signing up here. Keep in mind, Assassin's Creed Odyssey is an AAA rated game, and hence the minimum age requirement is 17, and obviously, you need at least 25Mbps of internet connection to go through. The test is scheduled to end in January, but until then, you are free to explore everything about the game.  Project Stream also supports wired USB controllers, so if you don't like playing Assassin's Creed with a mouse and keyboard, you can plug in a DualShock 4, an Xbox One controller, or an Xbox 360 controller.

The Best Diwali Kurtas To Get In The Festive Mood

It's October, which basically means that the festive season has officially begun. And with the festive season in full swing - we are just days away from Durga Puja celebrations - it's time to start upgrading your festive wear wardrobe. After all, how could you possibly attend all of those festivities without adorning (and rocking!) your best collection of kurtas?  So, for all those Diwali parties, card sessions and festive celebrations that you'll have to be a part of, here are the best Diwali kurtas for men that'll make you look really good in ethnic wear. Take A Look At The Best Diwali Kurtas For Men Out There  1. Manyavar Men's Blue Silk Kurta © Amazon Manyavar is perhaps the first brand that pops in our minds when we think of Diwali kurtas. And taking a look at their collection of festive kurtas, it's not too hard to figure out why that is the case. As such, you can be confident that this blue printed kurta makes for a great festive wear option this Diwali season, especially when you wear it with the navy blue pyjama that it comes with.  Fabric Composition: Silk MRP: Rs 2,999 Buy it here  2. Fabindia Men's Golden Kurta © Amazon Just Like Manyavar, Fabindia is another brand that immediately comes to mind when you think of looking for the best kurtas for men. As such, this golden kurta from their collection, that is made of a viscose and tussar blend, pretty much makes for a festive staple that needs to be a part of your wardrobe. The mandarin collar, that gives it a more fashion-forward touch, doesn't hurt either, especially when you pair it up with white pyjamas.  Fabric Composition: 70% viscose and 30% tussar MRP: Rs 2,190 Buy it here  3. Mohanlal Sons Men's White Silk Kurta © Amazon It's often said that when you're in doubt, you should go for something in white. Well, that's a notion that only gets reinforced with this white kurta from Mohanlal Sons. Made of pure silk and featuring a classy mandarin collar and a potli button placket, it's best suited for an all-white Diwali attire, one that'll make you truly stand out from the crowd by simply following that good old fashion rule 'less is more'.  Fabric Composition: Silk MRP: Rs 3,499 Buy it here 4. Sojanya Men's Mustard Silk Kurta © Amazon This silk kurta from Sojanya is perfect for those who are looking to add some variety to their festive wear collection. After all, this kurta is available in up to six different colours (including mustard, pink and blue). Depending on the colour of the kurta that you choose to opt for, you can pair it up with either beige or white pyjamas. The fact that they are so affordable doesn't hurt either.  Fabric Composition: Dupion Silk MRP: Rs 897 Buy it here 5. SVANIK Men's Teal Blue Kurta © Amazon Being the most affordable kurta on this list is just one of the reasons why opting for this teal-coloured variant makes so much sense. After all, you can easily team it up with almost any pair of coloured trousers (white, black, golden) and it'll still look good. Basically, this is that one kurta that will pretty much go with any pair of pyjamas or trousers you own, giving it perhaps the most utility (and value for money) of any mentioned on our list.  Fabric Composition: Blended MRP: Rs 586 Buy it here 6. Royal Kurta Men's Floral Blue Kurta © Amazon Kurtas with ethnic prints - especially those that borderline on floral and paisley patterns - have become somewhat of a cliche. But what separates this royal blue variant (it's also available in three different colours) from others is the intricacy of the pattern work, as well as the fact that it's made of premium art silk.  Fabric Composition: Art Silk MRP: Rs 1,495 Buy it here 7. Manyavar Men's Maroon Pleated Kurta © Amazon Pleated kurtas can be hard to pull off, especially if you don't maintain or take care of them properly. But if you give them the care they deserve, they can make you look your absolute best at the next Diwali party you attend. As such, this maroon variant from Manyavar, that will look incredibly good with a pair of beige trousers, is just the type of pleated kurta you need to be adding to your ethnic wardrobe.   Fabric Composition: Silk MRP: Rs 2,599 Buy it here 8. Jompers Men's White Kurta © Amazon What makes this white kurta from Jompers work is that simplistic print, which, while not overpowering or over-the-top, is prominent enough to leave its mark. The white and golden variant makes for a modish and fashion-forward option, especially when you choose to team it up with a pair of golden trousers and white jootis.  Fabric Composition: MRP: Rs 1,199 Buy it here 9. Ben Martin Maroon Men's Kurta © Amazon What are the three primary things you'd be looking for in a Diwali kurta? Ideally, it should be how stylish it looks, how comfortable it's going to be, and how much it'll cost you. Well with this maroon variant from Ben Martin, you pretty much end up checking off all of those essential boxes.  Fabric Composition: Rich cotton and dupion silk Blend MRP: Rs 1,317 Buy it here 10. Larwa Men's Orange Kurta © Amazon And finally, we have this orange kurta from Larwa. Made using Banarasi dupion, it makes for a comfortable and modish option that reinforces, once again, why sticking to basics can sometimes be the best option. Teaming it up with a pair of white pyjamas and white jootis should help seal your festive ensemble.  Fabric Composition: Banarasi Dupion MRP: Rs 1,199 Buy it here

Here's Everything One Needs To Know About The OnePlus 6T

The OnePlus 6 was one of the best flagships in the first half of 2018 and it wasn't crazy expensive. But 6 months after down the line, the competition has become tougher with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note9, Google Pixel 3, and the iPhone XS.  This means it's time for OnePlus to give us something better with the upcoming OnePlus 6T. Launching in just two weeks, here's everything you need to know about the OnePlus 6T. Since this is a T upgrade, most changes will be minor. In terms of design, the front will see the notch get much smaller than that on the OnePlus 6.  The display itself will be an OpticAMOLED panel made by Samsung with a Full HD+ resolution and a screen-to-body ratio of over 90 per cent. The back will look pretty similar to the 6 but without the fingerprint scanner.  © MensXP The OnePlus 6T will be one of the first mainstream globally available flagships to have an in-display fingerprint scanner, that OnePlus will be calling Screen Unlock. A few phones that currently sport an in-display fingerprint scanner are definitely slower than a conventional scanner, so it needs to be seen how OnePlus is able to actually bridge this gap.  Internally, the phone will have have the same specifications with a Snapdragon 845 SoC running the show along with 6 or 8GB of RAM, and storage options going all the way up to 256GB.  The battery is supposed to get a little bigger as well. However, the increase in battery size will come at a cost: the OnePlus 6T will be the first OnePlus device without a headphone jack. Thankfully, we are sure OnePlus will be providing a USB-C to 3.5mm jack dongle in the box, and OnePlus has just recently launched a new pair of their Bullets v2 earphones with a Type-C connector.  © Greggles TV / YouTube The phone will run on Android Pie out of the box with a new UI skin (https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/interview-oneplus-6t-the-future-of-oxygenos.924127/) that is supposed to be a lot more intuitive and will bring in speed as well as efficiency. New gestures for quick switching of apps will also make a debut.  A new gesture to activate Google Assistant, by holding the power button for half a second, will also be present. They have promised improvements in camera quality too, which should use the dual camera setup to its full potential.  Check back in 24 hours for an exciting announcement. #OnePlus6T pic.twitter.com/mIeveZ0n6H — OnePlus (@oneplus) October 7, 2018 The phone launches globally and in India on October 30, and sales are expected to start in the next couple of days. You can already pre-book the phone on Amazon.in to get a few extras when you make the eventual purchase.  The OnePlus 6 currently costs Rs 34,990 for the base variant and Rs 39,990 for more storage and RAM. If history is any indication, we can expect the OnePlus 6T to cost a couple of thousand more than the 6's respective models.

5 Important Moments From The LMIFW Rainbow Finale That Made It The Most Iconic Show Ever

After a 4-day long fashion extravaganza, the Lotus Make-Up India Fashion Week came to an end. The beautiful artistry involved in the skilful execution of all the garments, as well as the shows, transformed it into an affair to remember in the fashion fraternity. The big cherry on the cake, however, was the finale, which was a celebration of love.  The show was dedicated to freedom - the freedom of choice that the LGBT community has only recently acquired because of the landmark ruling regarding the striking down of section 377.  Here are 5 never-before-seen moments from the show, that made it one of the most iconic fashion shows ever:  1. For the first time ever, 40 designers came together to showcase their respective work, based on one single celebratory theme. The rainbow was the unifying factor and was presented in the form of 40 different, mindblowing outfits.  © Viral Bhayani 2. True to the theme, division based on gender and sexuality didn't cast its shadow on the show. From transgender models to gender-fluid outfits, everything that paves the way for a more inclusive society graced the stage with unmatched beauty. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani 3. From a conceptual view of art and design, there were some never before seen pieces. From Gaurav Gupta's illuminated dress to start off the show to Rajesh Pratap Singh's iconic white dress, that bled rainbow colours as it entered the runway, it was an artistic paradise.  © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani 4. Never before have we seen such positive energy on a ramp, when all 40 designers walked the ramp as well, accompanied by their respective models and creations. It was nothing short of a party, one that should inspire everyone to embrace their individuality.  View this post on Instagram A post shared by MENSXP (@mensxpofficial) on Oct 13, 2018 at 11:09am PDT 5. When designer Suneet Varma kissed his partner/husband Rahul Arora on the runway, we saw a glimpse of freedom in terms of pure, raw, unbridled love.

A PlayStation 4 Bug Is Causing Consoles To Crash & Here's How One Can Avoid It

PS4 owners have been facing issues with their consoles due to a message that contains characters, which reportedly crashes the PlayStation 4. In many cases, users are forced to perform a factory reset on the hardware to get it working again.   This sort of bug has been previously seen on smartphones, where a text message can basically freeze up your smartphone. The message that is being sent to numerous users is likely being sent by online rival players to shut down the console and have them booted out from a game.  This is not an isolated incident and has been reported by multiple users on Reddit and other social media platforms. © Reddit How Can One Avoid It?  There are a few ways to avoid this problem in case you get the message on your console. You can either delete the message from the PlayStation Messages app on iOS or Android. You can also follow the instructions below to avoid getting messages like these in the future. Restrict Messages  © Pexels On your PS4, you can go to Settings > Account Management > Privacy Settings and then click on “Personal Info | Messages”. It will open a sub-menu where you need to select Messages. You can now restrict receiving messages from Friends which will block out any malicious messages from players you do not know. As of now, Sony is yet to confirm this issue officially, however, it seems likely that the Japanese company will roll out a firmware update to resolve this problem.
