  1. Relationships can be tricky to manoeuvre sometimes. When we start out, it's all hearts and roses, goosebumps and shooting heart rates, then a few months (or even years) down the line, everything looks darn different. The excitement dies down to a ripple, and all the butterflies seem to have flown out of our tummies, and our 'heart eyes' are restored to their original capacities. (c)Dharma Productions However, amidst all these things, if there is one thing that ideally should not change, are the feelings our partner inspires every time we look at them. Yes, even with their sleep-mussed hair, runny makeup, or in the middle of a showdown right in the car parking! No matter what the situation is, and what we might be up to, there should never be any doubt in our mind about how our partner makes us feel. Even when things get ugly or difficult, our feelings for one another must never change, or at least not enough to intentionally hurt eat other. The love and respect we share must always be our strength, no matter how much time or how many struggles we have to face together. (c)T-Series Yet, if you are still not sure whether he or she is 'The One' for you, answer these 6 simple questions and find out for yourself. Mind you, if your answer to any of these is 'no', then you and your partner need to take a step back and reconsider your future: Question 1: Can You Discuss Anything & Everything With Your Partner At Given Point Of Time? Think real hard. Open channels of communication and sharing are the biggest signifiers of a fulfilling relationship. (c)Maddock Films Question 2: Do You Seek To Or Envision/Dream Of Spending Your Old Age With Your Partner? Seeking a future together should be on both of your lists for the relationship to flourish and bloom. Both of you should be looking for the same things from your relationship. Question 3: Is Yours An Unconditional And Selfless Love? Do you love your partner without any expectations and in abundance, and the same can be said for how they feel for you? If not, then you need to address this with your partner. (c)Dharma Productions Question 4: Is Your Partner Welcome At Every Family Get-Together Or Outing With Friends? It's important that our friends and family like the person we wish to spend the rest of our lives with. Because if they don't like them, there's going to be a solid reason and you might want to look into it. Question 5: Do Your Fantasies Have A Face Different Than Your Partner's? If this has ever happened to you, stop right there. Fantasizing about dating or bedding someone else while in a relationship is a huge red flag. (c)Excel Emtertainment Question 6: Do You Cherish The Time Spent Together? Enjoying each other's company and looking forward to hanging out together doing nothing, in particular, are signs of a healthy relationship. If you don't love spending time with your partner for whatever reason, this relationship isn't for you.
  2. June 2019 is a fiery month for all that is good on TV and the movies and we can't wait to become absolute couch potatoes next month onwards. Apart from that, going to the movie hall and spending a good amount of money will be worth it in June because Hollywood has something good in store for us. It is action-packed, it's funny, it's horrific and it's animated, and with every genre coming together to give you maximum entertainment, there is nothing else you really need. (c)20th Century Fox So, yes, look out for these 5 kickass Hollywood movies in June, book your tickets sooner than soon and don't forget to thank us. (1) X-Men: The Dark Phoenix (c)20th Century Fox Well, we've been waiting for this one far too long now and we hope it's not a sheer disappointment. While some of us can't wait to see Sansa aka Sophie Turner in a different avatar altogether, most of us have been waiting to see what Dark Phoenix really unfolds. All we know is the X-Men face their most powerful foe, Jean Grey. Jean is hit by a mysterious cosmic force when she's on a mission in space and after her return to earth, she's just infinitely powerful and a little bit evil, all because she really hasn't learnt to control the power she possesses. Banking on Sophie for this one. Releasing on: June 7, 2019 Watch the trailer here (2) Men In Black: International (c)Sony Pictures Releasing We have 'Men In Black: International' the fourth part of the series releasing this year on June 14th and we can't keep it together, because the trailer looks really badass, with some new elements drawn in. The sad part though is that we don't have the regular partners in crime this time, and that's the kinda camaraderie we're really going to miss. But fret not, 'MIB International' promises another alien invasion and two agents looking to kick some alien ass. Releasing on: June 14, 2019 Watch the trailer here (3) Child's Play (c)United Artists Releasing Although the scary doll movie has maintained its sequels pretty well, the new one isn't a part of that. In fact, the new 'Child's Play' is the remake of the original one and it seems as scary as the first one. The movie definitely has some old-school slasher vibe. Can't wait to see this again. Releasing on : June 21, 2019 Watch the trailer here (4) Toy-Story 4 (c)Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures This one is packed with a lot of action and nostalgia because Bo Peep is coming back after more than 20 years after making a debut back in 1999. The movie will hit the theatres in June. Releasing on : June 21, 2019 Watch the trailer here (5) The Dead Don't Die (c) Focus Features There's a chance this movie won't be in theatres here, but even so, download it when the time is right and watch it for sure. Because if you're in to zombies, this one's a funny one for sure. To add some light humour to an intense horrific year, we have another comical (of sorts) Zombie movie, with an awesome cast. The movie is obviously about a small-town police department battle some zombies. Of course, it's like any other Zombie movie but the cast surely makes this better. With Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Selena Gomez, Steve Buscemi, Rozie Perez and Iggy Pop, this movie looks damn promising. Releasing on: June 14, 2019 Watch the trailer here There are lots more releasing next month but these are surely going to have you at the edge of your seat. Most of the releases are sequels and maybe 2019 is the year of some great sequels (read 'Avengers: Endgame'). So, maybe plan your weekends with these movies on your agenda, for sure.
  3. "He may have aged, but he's still a lion uncaged!" We are not saying this, the makers and scriptwriters of 'Bharat' are, in this latest dialogue promo that was released today. Well, we don't know when Salman Khan's transition from being a 'Tiger' to a lion happened, but he's fierce regardless. And this promo is just a glimpse of how 'Bharat' is going to be much more than Salman romancing and dancing with Katrina Kaif and Disha Patani. T-Series In case you didn't know this already, the movie is a remake of the South Korean hit film 'An Ode To My Father' and will see Salman Khan in different characters ranging from an 18-year-old to a 72-year-old. T-Series We have already seen in trailers and teasers how Salman will look like as a circus artist or as a Navy officer, now it's time for us to see how an old Salman (probably in his 70s) will look like, while fighting with goons. T-Series The 20-second video shows a grandpa Salman being bullied by some goons. As expected Salman's 'andar ka boodha sher' awakens and he thrashes all of them with his bare hands (something only he can do). Is it just me or the action scenes and Salman looked strikingly similar to how he was in 'Kick' (only some years older)? Maybe, if 'Kick' makers ever plan to make a series, here's how Salman will look like in 'Kick 20'. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, 'Bharat' is releasing on June 5 and also stars Sunil Grover, Jackie Shroff and Nora Fatehi.
  4. The world of Netflix is an endless menu that never satiates our appetite. This week, in case you're looking for a little something to binge-watch that catches your fancy and keeps you interested, then allow us to recommend you 'Dead To Me', a dark comedy which depicts life in odd situations and is very real and raw in parts. The brilliant series stars Linda Candellini and Christina Applegate in the leads as Judy and Jen, respectively. The story is simple when you look at it. Jen is a widow who is frustrated with life after her husband Ted dies in a hit-and-run accident and she can't cope with dealing with life as a single mother and is looking for Ted's killer. Then comes Judy who is an over-enthusiastic, super optimistic and suspiciously sacchariferous to the eye. They eventually become friends and Judy helps Jen cope with the loss. It's neither a mush drama, nor is it a soppy soap opera. Together the two women learn to pick each other up and face life, one day at a time. However, there is a looming secret about Jen's dead husband Ted and another stomach-curling revelation which you find out in the first episode only, and that will change your perception about how you perceive the characters completely. People on the internet are absolutely loving it. I watched the first episode of #Deadtome on Netflix yesterday and IT GOT MEEEEEEEE. By the end of the episode was like pic.twitter.com/RlITJWuYJR — RAVEN B. (@RAVIEB) May 23, 2019 Also, Dead To Me, on Netflix is a fucking triumph. Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini are infinitely watchable, the show balances darkness and humor on the edge of a razor, and I am dying to see what happens next. If you haven't watched it yet, do it now — elan gale (@theyearofelan) May 22, 2019 Just started binge-watching #DeadToMe thinking it was a comedy. Then it's a dark comedy. Now it's a mystery?This show has me laughing on the edge of my seat. Also, I want to write down quotes to work into my real life. Is that wrong?#netflix https://t.co/bgcjqMKMN9 — eleni (@elenikoko2) May 25, 2019 The show is sometimes eerily real, so much that it makes you laugh and you kind of feel bad when you laugh on something you really shouldn't, because it will make you look at yourself and say 'that's me' and you won't feel great about it, but then you're only human. It also has a very 'YOU' vibe to it (another brilliant stalker drama on Netflix) and makes you think about who you can really trust. With 10 interesting episodes, this can be your weekend binge.
  5. Khalsa Aid and humanity are synonyms that are omnipresent in times of grief and trouble. The non-profit organisation is always one of the first few measures of help when problems come knocking anywhere in the world. Last year, the volunteers helped the flood stricken parts of Kerala, recently the organisation was in Odisha helping people after the cyclone took a toll on the lives. Currently, not many are aware of the water crisis that has affected many parts of Maharshtra. The state is drought stricken and people are dying. The Khalsa Aid is currently providing 6,000 litres of water every day to help the situation. Maharashtra Drought: Our @khalsaaid_india team is providing water to the people of #Maharashtra (India ). The drought has hit many areas, our teams are stepping up the water supply. @CMOMaharashtra @thetribunechd @IndianExpress pic.twitter.com/itOJejdFVJ — Khalsa Aid (@Khalsa_Aid) May 20, 2019 Around 22 lakh people have been affected with the situation and the team has been in Nasik for over a week. Besides arranging water tankers and providing clean, drinking water to the remote parts of the state, the volunteers are also sanitising water well with purifying tablets and other aids. Maharashtra Drought: Our @khalsaaid_india team continues to provide water to those affected by the severe drought in the Indian state of #Maharashtra @CMOMaharashtra pic.twitter.com/W2sUBX0CyI — Khalsa Aid (@Khalsa_Aid) May 24, 2019 Humanity is the biggest religion and one doesn't need political parties or money to save lives. Sometimes all we need is a little reminder that we all are humans and we are all that we have.
  6. The guru of romance and relationships, Karan Johar aka KJo is coming out with a brand new show, which will be all about love, on Netflix, and we can't wait to check it out. Known for his charm, wit, and for creating larger-than-life cinematic experiences, Karan Johar is back with something exciting for his fans and friends. Everyone's BFF, Karan is setting the stage to give love a new perspective and this time, it's without conjecture. 'What The Love? With Karan Johar', a one-of-a-kind dating reality show will be hosted by the man himself. Known for telling great love stories, Karan will be sharing his thoughts on love and relationships, but with an unexpected twist. Netflix Remember a time when dating shows were a thing in India? It was what drove huge amount of numbers towards actual reality TV and to recreate something similar right now is the need of the hour. Why, you ask? Well, because, dating and relationships have become so frivolous and rushed in the general, everyone wants to flee to see 'what's next', through a dating app. But maybe we all need a little 'old-school' 101 on romance and we can't think of anyone better than KJo himself, who, will in all probability, help couples figure out how to hold on to love rather than holding on to an escape plan instead! This is probably not how presents work but on the occasion of his birthday we've decided to gift ourselves a dating show hosted by @karanjohar. What The Love? With Karan Johar, coming to Netflix!@BBCStudiosIndia pic.twitter.com/edK73FeDrU — Netflix India (@NetflixIndia) 25 May 2019 Where there's chemistry, there's always a way! Can't wait to join the Netflix India family and spread a whole lotta love! @BBCStudiosIndia #BBCStudiosIndia #BBCProduction https://t.co/5wjAyHdP5N — Karan Johar (@karanjohar) 25 May 2019 Sharing Netflix's post, Johar wrote, “Where there's chemistry, there's always a way! Can't wait to join the Netflix India family and spread a whole lotta love! @BBCStudiosIndia #BBCStudiosIndia #BBCProduction.” Stay tuned to Netflix for more on 'What The Love? With Karan Johar'. The show is produced by BBC Studios India and promises to embrace love like never before.
  7. If you have strong willpower, dedication and support, then you can even move mountains and Gujarat's 25-year-old Mittal Parmar, who passed her class 12th this year with flying colours, is proof of the same. In 2009, Mittal Parmar had to drop out of class X, due to financial problems. Her family couldn't afford funding her education anymore. "My father is a tailor and he could not afford my education. My mother fell ill for prolonged periods and there was no one in the family to take care of the house," she told The Indian Express. BCCL (For Representation) Ten years later, now at the age of 25, Mittal not only sat for the class 12th exam, but also scored 89.71% and 99.77 percentile. Mittal credits her husband Chetan Barot for inspiring and supporting her to get back to studies. Chetan was Mittal's classmate and they got married in 2016. Mittal, who was always good at studies, skipped class 11 and appeared for class 12 (Commerce) directly in the open category. She took tuitions while doing her household chores. "It is not how much you study, but how well you grasp. I resumed studies after almost a decade. It was bit difficult but then it all went well. This would not have been possible without the support from my husband and family," she added. BCCL (For representation) Mittal now dreams of becoming a CA one day. Sometimes, people fail to achieve their dreams despite having everything. And sometimes, people who have nothing end up making it big in life because they never allowed anything to come in the way of their goal.
  8. Sony's upcoming next-generation console is not launching anytime soon. However, we already know a lot about it already, with more information pouring in every day. On the same lines, Sony's Vice President John Kodera has now confirmed that the new PlayStation 5, when it launches, will support backwards compatibility allowing you to play with PS4 players. According to Kodera, cross-generational play is very important to the company. He also noted that it's extremely important to keep the PlayStation community happy as it starts to migrate from PS4 to PS5. He didn't share a lot of details, but we're just happy to hear about the backwards compatibility support. It's great news for those who just bought a PS4 and were worried if Sony would just pull the plug. © Pexels Speaking of pulling the plug, it's also worth mentioning that Sony is also committed to supporting the PS4 for at least the next three years. Well, that makes a lot of sense considering the fact that there are millions of PS4 users in the world, and not all of them will be upgrading to the new console. It also goes to show how Sony isn't expecting a huge player to migrate to the new console in the first place. That being said, we already know enough about the upcoming console to tell you that it would be worth the upgrade. The next-generation PlayStation console is said to bring new things like a faster SSD, Ray-tracing support and more. The faster SSD, in particular, is what's said to make the most difference in terms of loading times, render times, etc. Obviously, there's still a lot that we don't necessarily know about Sony's next-generation console, but we do know that we have exciting times ahead. The new PlayStation 5 will definitely be worth the wait.
  9. Imagine being able to say it out loud: “I am the only person to skate in Antarctica and have my name in a record book to prove it.” Well, Lakshmi Sona Singh can actually do it. Getting her name registered in India's prestigious Limca Book of Records (2019), the 35-year-old London based amateur skater put on her roller blades, stepped onto the Paradise Harbour, Antarctica and glided her way into becoming the first (and only) person to do so, on 16 December 2017. Credit: Lakshmi Sona Singh Working as a Sales Manager in a UK-based telecom services company, Lakshmi had been a great skating enthusiast ever since her childhood days in Surat, Gurjarat, where her parents introduced her to a set of wheels when she was six. However, much like the most of us, education, a good job and the ever-so-heavy burden of settling down became her priorities with her love for skating got buried deep within her heart. But as they say, “passion never dies.” Nearly three decades later, Lakshmi decided to turn her dreams of skating among the pristine surroundings of Antarctica, into reality. “I just decided to pack a bag and grab my skates,” she told us. Credit: Lakshmi Sona Singh Sure, her journey to Antarctica was not that easy. Saving up for this single trip for years, Lakshmi faced some criticism from her parents and her brother, who thought it was impossible and absolutely crazy for her to continue to work towards this goal of hers. But when she finally booked her tickets and fervourly called her parents at 3 in the morning to break the news, they had to give in to her unshaken commitment. “I was confident about finishing my journey. There was so much excitement that there was no room for nervousness, although I did get a lot of strange looks from the people who were around me on the ship when they saw my roller blades,” she said jokingly. Credit: Lakshmi Sona Singh She also had to let go of one of her clothing baggage as the weight of the roller blades itself was too much to carry, but Lakshmi was on a mission and it was a very small price to pay. Now that this endeavour of hers has come to a successful end, Lakshmi is determined to skate at the North Pole next and eventually on every other continent, with the hopes of making another record of skating on all seven continents. We wish her the best of luck!
  10. 'Gaming Addiction' is something that we've been hearing a lot lately, thanks to the influx of popular online multiplayer titles like PUBG Mobile, Fortnite and more. But if you find yourself locked in a room gaming all the time ignoring the world, then you have a serious illness, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). That's right, WHO has revised the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-11), and it now, for the first time, includes 'Gaming Disorder' as an addictive behavior disorder. The revision takes effect on January 1, 2022. © Pexels The International Classification of Diseases is a system for classifying diseases and disorders for purposes of epidemiological research, health care management and billing, and clinical treatment. There's a chapter that's set aside for “mental, behavioral or neurodevelopmental disorders,” and gaming is listed there now. You'd be surprised to find out that 'Gaming Disorder' is now listed right after 'Gambling' in ICD-11 and uses the description word-for-word, replacing “gambling” with “gaming”. It says, “Gaming Disorder is a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behavior ('digital gaming' or 'video-gaming'), which may be online (i.e., over the internet) or offline.” The proposed disorder manifests in three different ways - © Pexels Those with gaming disorder may show “impaired control over gaming,” “increasing priority given to gaming to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other life interests and daily activities,” and “continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurence of negative consequences.” In response to WHO's decision, a lot of industry experts from around the world called out the organisation and asked to rethink its decision. “It's not based on sufficiently robust evidence”, the experts said. Well, we don't know about the experts, but we do believe that we all should collectively do something about “gaming disorder” and the growing concerns around it. We can't let games like PUBG Mobile mess up relationships and put people's lives in jeopardy. It needs to be stopped.
  11. Over the last few years, Creatine has gained a lot of popularity amongst athletes and fitness enthusiast. With this surge in popularity, supplement manufacturers have also started offering various forms of Creatine. They claim that these other forms have different usage and some even claim that they are even more effective than the regular Creatine Monohydrate. © Getty Images In this article, I will tell you why the traditional Creatine Monohydrate still remains the best choice as compared to other options available in the market. The other options in which creatine is available these days are the following:- Creatine Ethyl Ester Liquid Creatine Creatine Hydrochloride Creatine Magnesium Chelate Now, let's see why Creatine Monohydrate still beats the other contenders? 1. Better Research Data Available Than Others – At least hundreds of studies have been conducted on the effectiveness of Creatine till date. It is interesting to know that around 90 per cent of them were conducted on Monohydrate only. Only a handful of studies have been conducted on other forms of Creatine out of which only a few of them were conducted on humans. Thus, it won't be wrong to say that conclusive evidence for the effectiveness of creatine is not available for any other form except for Monohydrate. 2. Monohydrate Form Is More Effective Than Others – Creatine Monohydrate has proven to be effective in increasing the strength, power, muscle mass and overall exercise performance in athletes and trained individuals. © Getty Images When Creatine Monohydrate in powdered form was compared to liquid and other forms, the results were not similar. In a study conducted by the Department of Health, Human Performance and Recreation USA it was established that Creatine Monohydrate is better absorbed and effective than ethyl ester and other liquid forms of creatine. In another study conducted by The Centre for Sport and Exercise Science, New Zealand, a group of cyclists who consumed Creatine Monohydrate in powdered form was able to increase their performance by ten per cent and the group that consume liquid creatine had no changes in their performance levels. 3. Better Availability – Creatine Monohydrate is easily available as compared to other forms of creatine in the market. Almost every supplement company manufactures it and you can easily find it in any random supplement store and online stores as well. On the other hand, there are only a few manufacturers who manufacture creatine hydrochloride or liquid creatine. Due to limited demand, manufacturers and distributors have limited supply with them. In fact, this is one of the reasons that you find hydrochloride and other forms of creatine as a blend with various pre-workout brands. They are added to the ingredient profile to make the product sound better than others. © Getty Images 4. Cost-Effective – Creatine Monohydrate is one of the cheapest supplement available in the market. It's per serving cost is the lowest as compared to any other supplement as well as any other form of creatine. Since other forms of Creatine have less demand, their supply is less and hence come at a higher price than monohydrate.

  12. Having won two successive World Cups in 1975 and 1979, West Indies almost came close to securing their third, only to lose the final to India in 1983. Since that fateful day, the Windies have managed to enter the playoff stage only on three occasions - a semifinal entry in 1996 and a last-eight place in 2011 and 2015. Needless to mention, their ODI record, over the last five years, has been abysmal by any standards. But, despite their troubles in recent past, their 15-man squad is not the one to be underestimated. The power-packed entertainers like Chris Gayle and Andre Russell are more than capable of winning the matches for their side single-handedly. The two super stars will also have adequate backing from swashbuckling Shimron Hetmyer, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope and Darren Bravo. © Reuters The Windies also have the luxurious services of Jason Holder, Ashley Nurse and Carlos Brathwaite at their disposal. These men will not only provide depth to their batting, but are more than capable of giving the ball a fair tonk. The pace attack, that has been their weapon of mass destruction in the early years, looks intimidating and dangerous with the availability of Shannon Gabriel, Oshane Thomas, Kemar Roach and Sheldon Cottrell. On paper at least, the Windies do look like a side that can not only cause problems to the tournament favourites, but can also potentially reach the final. But, for that to happen, the following individuals must step up to the task: Chris Gayle © Reuters One of the most feared and a destructive opening batsman, Chris Gayle has undoubtedly lived up to his reputation as the 'Universe Boss'. The Jamaican marauder has been a force to reckon with in the limited-overs format, clearing the fence and tormenting the opposition bowlers at will. He might have struggled with his running between the wickets, but who cares about taking singles when you can send almost every ball in the stratosphere. A vital cog in the batting line-up for the Windies, the 39-year-old powerhouse has been in ominous form since his return to the ODI set-up after seven months in February this year. In his last five ODI innings, the left-hander has scored 424 runs including two hundreds and as many fifties. And, the fact that the Jamaican marauder is set to retire from ODIs after the World Cup further makes him a threat for the opposition. Andre Russell © Reuters While Gayle has reigned supreme at the top, Andre Russell has carved his own niche to become a key member in West Indies' middle-order. A sweet timer of the ball with enough experience to mould his innings, the 31-year-old's versatility to literally bat anywhere in the middle-order gives his team that extra cushion they'll need in crunch situations. But, that's not the only thing Russell is good at. Sprinting in to deliver his medium-paced deliveries, the right-arm bowler can also be more than handy with the ball. His cunning variations and testing lengths can give the Windies vital breakthroughs in dire situations. For the Windies to launch a stern title charge this year, Russell must carry on his fine form from the IPL to England & Wales. Shimron Hetmyer © Reuters One of the youngest members in the squad, Shimron Hetmyer might lack experience going into the World Cup, but make no mistake, this young gun is more than capable of running away with the game single-handedly. His brutal hitting abilities saw him rapidly gain a reputation as one of most destructive batsmen in recent times. Though the Windies batting line-up has numerous hard-hitting batsmen aiding their cause, but the presence of Hetmyer further bolsters what appears to be a solid middle-order. The youngster has already proven how devastating he can be against the quicks, but negating spin has proved to be a challenge for him in the recent past. With the Windies gunning for the title this year, Hetmyer will surely be expected to come to the party. Jason Holder © Reuters Tasked with the responsibility of leading the side at the age of just 23, Jason Holder might have taken his time, but he has surely emerged as the potent leader of the Windies brigade. A reliable lower middle-order batsman and a steady medium-pace bowler, Holder is also level-headed and mature - something that makes him a befitting captain. In this year's World Cup, Holder will not only be expected to deliver with ball (and bat, if required), but his decision-making abilities on the field and finding the right team balance will have on mark if the Windies intend to give their opponents a run for their money. Carlos Brathwaite © Reuters For someone who wrote himself in the history books by smashing Ben Stokes for four successive sixes to seal the World T20 title in 2016, Carlos Brathwaite has been relatively quiet in the recent years. But, the big Windies all-rounder remains key to his team's success in this year's World Cup. Owing to his explosive batting skills, Brathwaite is more than capable of providing the final flourish to West Indies in the death overs. His hitting abilities can help his team get that extra leeway over their opponents, while his innings can make all the difference in a crunch match. When it comes to bowling, Brathwaite might not be the West Indies' go-to wicket-taking option, but his medium-paced deliveries surely provide them an extra bowling option.
  13. Whether it's a 10-km ride to your office or a 1000-km ride to Ladakh, if you have a high-end good looking bike, it doesn't hurt to match by cleaning up well. Now, here's the thing: buying the right accessories not only makes you look the part of a pro-rider but also equips you with the comfort to battle the slowest of jams, the roughest of terrains, and the harshest of weathers. Here's your definitive guide to buying accessories that will make heads turn on the highway 1. Helmets © Getty Images At the cost of sounding like your friendly local traffic cop, wearing a helmet while riding is not an option. What is an option, however, is looking good in that protective gear you need. Choosing the right helmet can help you not only make your ride safe and comfortable but can turn heads and in a good way! The trick is to get the colour right; instead of a flashy yellow helmet, go for sturdy earth tones with your Royal Enfield. It helps to get the style right too. Usually heavy bikes are to be accompanied by open face helmets while street-style helmets go better with sport-bikes. It is always advisable to buy from official retailers that guarantee the right style, comfort, and quality. 2. Jackets © Getty Images Bike jackets can be either leather or fabric-based. While leather helps you look the way you'd expect a classic “biker” to look, high-quality fabrics are able to resist abrasion as strongly as leather, and new materials are equipped with Gore-Tex or other water-resistant membranes capable of keeping you dry in bad weather. Fabric-based jackets are affordable as well. Again, it is essential to get the right colour. The idea is to keep it classy, and not flashy at the same time. 3. Pants © Getty Images Contrary to popular belief, regular jeans will not protect you in an accident. It is always advisable to buy proper riding pants that offer the right comfort and protection. Much like jackets, pants can be either leather or fabric based. They should fit like a glove, but at the same time should be comfortable as well. Always test your pants out on a bike, what might work well standing, might not work great on a 7-hour road trip. 4. Gloves © Getty Images Bike gloves should fully cover your fingers, palm, and your wrists. Gloves should reach over or under your jacket leaving no skin exposed. Black is the safe colour here, but textured highlights can provide the right amount of flash in your otherwise overall classy look. What is most important is that the gloves fit well and provide you with enough strength to not only handle well but survive the unfortunate fall with zero scratches.
  14. Entertainment, Entertainment, and Entertainment - these are the three qualities that are needed to attract a viewer to come to the theatres. So far, 2019 has been pretty fruitful for Bollywood. We have had films like 'Gully Boy', 'Uri: The Surgical Strike', 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi', 'Kesari', and 'Luka Chuppi' which were intensely appreciated by the audience. Interestingly, the masses have gotten a flavour blend of both intense and light-hearted movies. May was a blend of romantic and political movies. This month, we've had PM Narendra Modi's biopic, which was released post the elections to much fanfare. We also got to see stories that throw light on incidents that are not known to us in detail, like Arjun Kapoor's 'India's Most Wanted', which is inspired by the true events of the capture of terrorist Yaseen Bhatkal. After such an intense end to May, it's time to start the next month with a bang, as viewers are waiting with bated breath to see Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif's 'Bharat'. June 2019 doesn't have a big line up, but we can assure you that the movies in the pipeline have something interesting to offer if you are a movie enthusiast. Let's look at the movies which should be on your must-watch list: 1. Bharat Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are back and viewers are in awe of their chemistry ever since they were first seen together in 'Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya'. 'Bharat' is an upcoming drama film which is about a journey of a man and the nation together. Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Disha Patani, Tabu and Jackie Shroff will be seen sharing the screen in this film. For a Salman Khan fan, the movie is bound to be a visual delight as it will show the actor in different avatars. We are not really sure about the content but we can blindly make a bet that it will fare well at the box office. Are you all set for a roller-coaster ride on June 5th? 2. Kabir Singh Shahid Kapoor is back in the game and how! Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer, 'Kabir Singh', is a remake of the Telugu film 'Arjun Reddy'. The trailer has already generated a lot of anticipation for the film and the viewers have appreciated Shahid for his intense acting. We are sure that comparisons will be drawn but it will be worth the watch. 3. Article 15 © Ayushmann Khurrana/Twitter A movie featuring Ayushmann Khurrana can't be taken for granted as the actor never goes wrong in taking up his scripts. It will be interesting to see what the actor has to offer this time. 'Article 15' is scheduled to release on 28 June, this year and the icing on the cake is Anubhav Sinha taking the director's seat. Ayushmann will be seen essaying the role of a police officer for the first time in this film. A stellar cast that includes Isha Talwar, Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra, M Naser, Ashish Verma, Sushil Pandey, Subrajyoti Bharat, and Zeeshan Ayub will also add to the film.

  15. As soon as Ranveer Singh was roped in to play the main man behind India's first ever Cricket World Cup Win in 1983 - Kapil Dev, we had geared up for another solid sports biopic. Ranveer has had an amazing couple of years, with huge, successful movies like 'Padmaavat' and 'Gully Boy' under his belt, and it's only natural for us to be excited for his unique role in '1983'. He is known to completely throw himself into the process of 'becoming the character', something that sets him apart in Bollwood. For '1983', he needs to become the captain of the team, and he has been spending time with Kapil Dev for that very reason. Take a look.

While Ranveer wore a plain white T-shirt, Kapil Dev looked dapper in his usual fare - the plain white shirt.

One simply can never go wrong with them, irrespective of the occasion.
