  1. Lalhnehpuia Chhakchhuak is a young man who believes in putting in the effort in pursuit of greatness and backs his words up with his actions. In all of 16 years of his young life, Chhakchhuak has seen all kinds of struggles when it comes to following the game of basketball and the passion that comes along with it but does not know how to quit. He has based his work ethic on the principles of his idol, the five-time NBA champion, Kobe Bryant. Known for his 'never say die' attitude, better known as the 'Mamba Mentality', it taught the Los Angeles Lakers legend the need to go that extra mile to make big things happen and that is something Chhakchhuak swears by. View this post on Instagram Year 2 Vision A post shared by lalhnehpuia chhakchhuak (@hnehpuiaa) on Apr 2, 2019 at 5:38am PDT Having spent more than a year at the NBA Academy in Greater Noida, the Mizoram-born has had a tough childhood. Unable to speak Hindi, Chhakchhuak had trouble making friends at the Academy at first but the beauty of sports, any sport, is that it goes beyond the segregations of skin, caste, language or gender. Through the game of basketball and a little bit of help from the people around him, Chhakchhuak was well on his way to forming a special bond with the rest of the candidates who were selected from all over the country. When asked about how the Academy helped him, Chhakchhuak said: “The NBA Academy consists of some of the most talented coaches in the world who pay a lot of attention to a player's basics. The infrastructure here is on international standards and the way they teach us the minute details of the game is exceptional.” View this post on Instagram “Each of us have something to learn from others and something to teach in return”- Saint Augustine . . . . #mizobasketball A post shared by lalhnehpuia chhakchhuak (@hnehpuiaa) on Apr 15, 2019 at 4:17am PDT However, before the young athlete became a part of the Academy, Chhakchhuak had aims to play for his city, Aizawl and his state Mizoram, but due to the risk of occasional insurgency attacks and the lack of facilities to promote the game there, he could not pursue his dream back home. Luckily for him, Lalhnehpuia took birth in a pro-basketball family with his mother a player herself and his father, the head of the Mizoram Basketball Association and it is because of the support of his parents, Lalhnehpuia was able to make it to the academy. However, no matter how far away from home he may be, he remembered the values and the importance of maintaining balance that his mother, who was also his very first coach, had taught him. View this post on Instagram Reunited after 3 years. Gcs 2016 batch A post shared by lalhnehpuia chhakchhuak (@hnehpuiaa) on May 1, 2019 at 6:30am PDT In the latest class 10th boards, Lalhnehpuia was able to get a total of 91% and the entire credit behind him becoming such an allrounder must go the mother and the NBA Academy. “I feel privileged to have become a party of the NBA academy. Every day when I get up, I feel thankful towards my parents, because of whom I am doing that one thing that I have always wanted to do and that is, play basketball,” Chhakchhuak says. Chhakchhuak desires to join the actual National Basketball Association one day and just like another Laker, Lebron James, wishes to dominate the court when he steps in.
  2. Honoured with the name, 'Hitman', Indian cricket team's opener, Rohit Gurunath Sharma is on top of the cricketing world for all the right reasons. Currently donned with the duty to lead the Men in Blue into international series in the absence of Virat Kohli, Sharma is also one of the most decorated batsmen of our nation. But things were not always so rosy and exciting for the now 32-year-old athlete. Coming from humble beginnings, 'Shaana', as Yuvraj Singh likes to call him, was just a kid with a dream a couple of decades ago. His family did not have the silver to make life easier for the righty but the will to see him make it big internationally, could be found in abundance. © Rohit Sharma Hailing from Nagpur, Rohit's father, Gurunath Sharma, used to work as a caretaker of a transport firm storehouse in Mumbai and could only manage to afford a one-room apartment for the entire family to reside in. However, the worst was yet to come. After losing his job at the storehouse, his father found it extremely difficult to provide food and shelter to the little boy and decided to send him away to his grandparents and uncles' place in Borivali at the tender age of 10. Even though they were unable to see their child daily, they made it a point to visit him at least once every week. Appreciating his unshaken passion for the game of cricket, his parents decided to help him make a career in the sport and wanted to get him in a cricket academy by all means necessary. Pooling in Rs. 50 his parents, uncles and their friends collected enough funds to help him get through the academy in 1999. At the time, Sharma used to be a bowling all-rounder with expertise in off-spin but his coach, Dinesh Lad, at the academy advised him to focus more on his talents with the bat. He even managed to provide Rohit with a four-year scholarship at Swami Vivekananda International School, an institution ten-times better than where he used to go before. Switching schools also allowed the young and talented cricketer work harder to reach his goals. © Rohit Sharma As for someone who used to approach the crease as an 8th or 9th down to opening for Lad's team at the Inter-School tournament and scoring a total of 120 runs on his debut had to be special and the rest, as they say, is history. Having his fair share of dips in form, Sharma has had a rollercoaster career before he showed his ability to shine on the brightest of stages in the past few years and it seems as if the 32-year-oldie has built enough faith amongst the BCCI selection committee to make him a “sure thing” for the upcoming ICC World Cup. Sharma, who belongs to the A+ category of pay grade for Team India, was also blessed with a daughter earlier this year and this was probably the best present he could have asked for.
  3. Rahul Sharad Dravid, the man who is hated by literally zero per cent population of the world, is someone who has seldom raised his voice about any agenda in public. Time and again, he has proven his worth, first as one of the most sturdy cogs of the Indian cricket team, then as a rock-solid batsman at the crease and finally, as the fine coach of the junior Indian cricket team. It was behind the invaluable guidance and experience of Mr Dependable himself, that the country's 'second-tier squad' known as Team India A was able to dominate versus the visiting England Lions in a five-match one-day series in January 2019. Not to forget the young Prithvi Shaw-led Under-19 squad that lifted the 2018 ICC U-19 World Cup and later, the 2018 Asia Cup championship, which also came during the tenure of the Indore-born cricketing marvel. Credit: Reuters Having said that, his innocence has been taken for granted time and again, giving him a setback every time it was his moment to be recognised for his efforts and get rewarded. First, with not being appointed as the head coach of the Men in Blue and the post being given to Ravi Shastri, once Anil Kumble had resigned, and now with the whole National Cricket Academy (NCA) issue brimming. As the month of April began, Dravid made headlines for being the one and the only choice for the post of Head Coach of the Bengaluru-based institution, which is loaded with the state of the art technology and all the other provisions to produce the best crop of Indian cricketers for the future of the game in the nation. "Rahul has been handling junior cricket for a while now and the results have been phenomenal. It's only natural that he had to get involved with affairs at the NCA (in the present position). Now, he's determined to bring about a complete turnaround at the academy. With the kind of vision he has, it's already a given now that this is his role until he decides to stay,” Times of India had quoted an informed official, back in the day. Now, however, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to not go ahead with that plan and instead requires Dravid to “apply” for the job just like all the new candidates, the Board has in mind. Sure, according to BCCI officials, Dravid is “obviously a favourite for the role” as reported by TOI, but this is nothing more than an insult to 'The Wall' and his legacy. Credit: Reuters Why does Dravid need to send in his resume? Well, apparently, the Board realised that in the past few years, they have had the misfortune of directly appointed some questionable personnel for high-level jobs and their inability to hold the positions has caused them huge disappointments. In order to prevent something like that from happening, they have decided to carry out the process of the typical CV-based appointments. The only silver lining may be the fact that once his tenure as the head coach of the Indian cricket team is over, even Ravi Shastri must apply for the position once again in order to get the job. *Phew*
  4. One of the greatest batsmen to have ever represented the Men in Blue, Rahul Dravid has fulfilled his duties as the coach of the junior Indian cricket team and helped them experience the level of success that not even the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) would have seen coming their way. It was under the leadership of Mr Dependable himself, that Team India A was able to completely dismantle the visiting England Lions for a five-match one-day series and not to forget the 2018 World Cup victory by the Under-19 squad captained by Shubhman Gill along with the 2018 Asia cup championship. It was therefore rather obvious to have Dravid become a major part of the revamping of the National Cricket Academy (NCA), a Bengaluru-based facility that will ensure state of the art technology and other provisions to contribute even more towards the betterment of the future of cricket in India. "Rahul has been handling junior cricket for a while now and the results have been phenomenal. It's only natural that he had to get involved with affairs at the NCA (in the present position). Now, he's determined to bring about a complete turnaround at the academy. With the kind of vision he has, it's already a given now that this is his role until he decides to stay,” Times of India quoted an informed official. Dravid will be entrusted with the role of building the entire academy from scratch while hiring the entire coaching team from all around the country. “For all practical purposes, NCA will now be Rahul's baby,” said another official. His vision has already started to make some significant changes to the pre-established rules. For instance, back in the day, 15 out of 20 people were selected to go further for the training camp, the other five would have been asked to go home, leaving behind their dreams. Dravid, however, has made it clear that all 20 athletes will remain with the academy throughout the camp. While a lot of people had hoped that the BCCI would have selected 'The Wall' as the leader of the main Indian cricket roster instead of Ravi Shastri, this may turn out to be a blessing in disguise for the future Indian athletes, having being taught under the wings of the very best at an early stage. With a rock solid base to build their cricketing career upon, Dravid's NCA might as well be the place where dreams are transformed into reality.
  5. The Marvel universe is just that, a pure marvel. It boasts of a following that's no less religious about its super teams and superheroes, than the ones who believe in the existence of a higher order placed within holy shrines. An array of captivating movies and stunning characters have taken birth on-screen under the Marvel Studios banner over the years. From the 'X-Men' to 'Fantastic Four' and 'Spiderman' to 'Deadpool', Marvel universe's oeuvre is packed with the best of the best that there are in the arena. © Marvel Studios Yet, regardless of the marvellous stories, and powerful characters that have made their way to the silver screen over the years, with over close to 35 Oscar nominations to its credit, none of them actually came close to take the gilded dude home. However, Marvel's bad luck with Oscars seems to have come to an end as 'Black Panther' won an Oscar for the Best Costume Design in a Motion Picture. 'Black Panther' had earned seven Oscar nominations in the Academy Awards 2019, of which designer Ruth Carter's costume designs for the film brought home the gold! Not just that, Carter also became the first black woman to ever win under the Costume Design category. In her acceptance speech, Carter said, “ It's been my life's honor to create costumes. Thank you to the Academy. Thank you for honouring African royalty and the empowered way women can look and lead on screen.” Apart from costume design, 'Black Panther' also won an Oscar for Best Production Design in a Motion Picture. Production designer Hannah Beachler also happens to be the first black artist to not only win under this category but also get nominated in the category in the last 90 years.

It seems 'Black Panther' was on a mission to make up for all of Marvel's lost chances, and went on to bag an Oscar for Best Score in Motion Picture, which was accepted by composer Ludwig Goransson. It's been a good day for the cast and crew of 'Black Panther' and the rest of us Marvel fanatics. Wakanda Forever!
  6. Arguably one of most impressive off-spinners of his generation, Harbhajan Singh ruled the bowling charts during his stint with Team India in international cricket. Making full use of his whiplash action, Bhajji managed to alter the length and pace of his deliveries with relative ease, which, in turn, spelled doom for opposition batsmen. But, a lack of form and rise of young spinners has pretty much restricted him to domestic cricket now. While he might not have featured for Team India in almost three years, Bhajji continues to be a vital cog in Chennai Super Kings' bowling unit in the Indian Premier League (IPL). While cricket remains his first love, the 38-year-old is a self-proclaimed fan of wrestling. He was earlier seen arm-wrestling prominent WWE superstar Dalip Singh aka the Great Khali. And, now the 'Turbanator' has backed it up by stepping in the ring himself. View this post on Instagram Panja with great khali @dalipsinghcwe #bigfella #Awesomeguy #bigman A post shared by Harbhajan Turbanator Singh (@harbhajan3) on Jun 8, 2018 at 8:51am PDT Invited to Khali's wrestling academy - Continental Wrestling Entertainment (CWE) - in Jalandhar, Harbhajan stepped in the ring and gave a motivational speech to the youngsters. The Indian spinner was urging them to work on the area of their interest irrespective of the sport they chose to pursue. But, before he could finish, Harbhajan's motivational speech was cut short by a local wrestler. The wrestler, whose ring name is 'Dubey-ji', entered the ring to interrupt the Indian cricketer's speech. Confronting Bhajji, the local wrestler introduced himself as the Singham of CWE wrestling. To which, Harbhajan broke down laughing before mocking him by saying: "What kind of a Singham are you because the Singham's that I've heard of, have strong personality, unlike you". View this post on Instagram Some CWE time at @dalipsinghcwe Khali academy jalandhar ððªð A post shared by Harbhajan Turbanator Singh (@harbhajan3) on Feb 2, 2019 at 8:41pm PST In response, the irate wrestler said: "You may be a superstar but you don't know the first thing about making any sort of motivational speeches". The confrontation went on before 'Dubey-ji' challenged Bhajji to a fight. But, he soon regretted his decision as Harbhajan landed a tight slap on his cheek that saw the local wrestler running out of the ring. To make a point, Bhajji, then, also dropped the mic in the middle of the ring. While it pretty much looked like a publicity stunt, Bhajji's latest antics surely reminded us of the infamous slap he landed on the cheek of S Sreesanth following an encounter between Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab in the IPL in 2008.
