  1. Break ups are bad and seemingly the one advice you always get post your break up, is keeping your distance from your ex-girlfriend. Have you heard your friends always tell you "whatever you do bro, just don't hook up with your ex, move on man"? Well, that advice is valid and legit only because you want to forget the past and move forward and maybe give someone else a chance. But there is a lingering feeling deep inside you, which probably still connects to your ex, and it's kinda inevitable and there is nothing you can do to contain that feeling really. © MensXP There may come a time where you will bump into your ex at a party or a bar, and if you haven't seen each other for long, you'll either ignore each other's respective presence or rekindle long lost conversations. Most likely, it's the latter and sometimes, those conversations could bring about latent feelings and the sexual pleasure you both derived from each other. Yes, sleeping with an ex is as common as the common cold and many of us indulge in it, and feel either ashamed or angry the next day or know for a fact that feelings for them still remain. But what if I told you, sleeping with an ex is not that bad, after all? Yes, you read that right. According to some recent research from Wayne State University, having *** with your ex might not be such a bad idea, in fact, the research argues that it may even be a 'good' idea. © MensXP The study was conducted in two parts and it analysed the daily experiences and activities of 113 individuals who'd recently broken up or were going through a break-up. Two months after the break-up, they were given a questionnaire to fill. The questionnaire asked if they'd tried to have physical contact with their ex and if they were emotionally attached to them and how they felt, every day, after they'd had some form of physical contact with their ex. The second part was somewhat similar, where 372 participants were asked to take a survey, which asked them similar questions about physical contact with their ex's and their level of attachments with them. The result was quite fascinating actually. Rather than expecting that sleeping with an ex is emotionally turbulent and can leave feelings to linger on, hindering your ability to move on, while prolonging the heartbreak, the researchers found that sleeping with an ex really didn't stop the day-today healing process. The participants who pined after their exes were more likely to have *** with them and even after that they didn't feel heartbroken or emotionally stunted, or even upset. In fact, hooking up with their ex, left them feeling more positive, every day. © MensXP "This research suggests that societal handwringing regarding trying to have *** with an ex may not be warranted. The fact that *** with an ex is found to be most eagerly pursued by those having difficulty moving on, suggests that we should perhaps instead more critically evaluate people's motivations behind pursuing *** with an ex." - the lead researcher, Stephanie Spielmann said in an interview with an international publication. But that being established, it's always necessary to know where you stand with your feelings and your emotions. There may have been research conducted to establish that *** is good with the ex but more often than not, it's subjective. If you feel mangled up and distraught after any form of physical contact with them or if you feel that physical intimacy with an ex acts as a deterrent for you to move on successfully, then you have to weigh your decision well. But if you think like the rest of the subjects from the research, your feelings are intact and you feel good about it, then, of course, go for it. But remember, don't have any expectations. if you're sleeping with an ex, in order to win them back, it may lead to more complications later and leave you more heartbroken than before!
  2. Whenever neighbouring countries India and Pakistan lock horns on the cricket field, the excitement around this massive fixture tends to reach an all-time high. The fans on both sides of the border are seen taunting each other on social media and, every now and then, Indian tennis sensation Sania Mirza finds herself caught in the crosshairs. Cringeworthy ads on both sides of the border 𤮠seriously guys, you don't need to 'hype up' or market the match anymore specially with rubbish! it has ENOUGH attention already!It's only cricket for God sake, and if you think it's anymore than that then get a grip or get a life !! — Sania Mirza (@MirzaSania) June 12, 2019 Ahead of the Indo-Pak encounter at the ongoing ICC World Cup, Mirza had tweeted her frustration over the unnecessary hype around the much-anticipated fixture which also saw a distasteful video coming to the fore. "Cringeworthy ads on both sides of the border 𤮠seriously guys, you don't need to 'hype up' or market the match anymore specially with rubbish! it has ENOUGH attention already! It's only cricket for God sake, and if you think it's anymore than that then get a grip or get a life," she had tweeted. But, despite the extensive build-up, the so-called mother of all battles failed to live up to the billing. In what turned out to be a one-sided affair, Pakistan were overshadowed in almost all facets of the game by a rampant Indian brigade during their 89-run loss (D/L) at Old Trafford in Manchester. Witnessing their national team lose to arch-rivals India, the Pakistani fans wasted no time in expressing their feelings on social media. While some slammed captain Sarfaraz Ahmed for yawning behind the stumps, others questioned the fitness of Pakistani cricketers after a video of them eating junk food went viral. ðThat's the video you shot without asking us,disrespecting our privacy even though we had a child with us?& got told off for doing so,& u came up with this crap?FYI 'outing' was dinner & yes ppl are allowed to eat if they lose a match!Bunch of fools!Try better content nxt timeð https://t.co/51gnkMWUYu — Sania Mirza (@MirzaSania) June 15, 2019 There were also some tweets targeting Mirza, who was seen in the company of her hubby Shoaib Malik alongside his teammates. Tired of the criticism, Mirza hit back at the trolls by tweeting: "That's the video you shot without asking us, disrespecting our privacy even though we had a child with us? & got told off for doing so,& u came up with this crap? FYI 'outing' was dinner & yes ppl are allowed to eat if they lose a match! Bunch of fools! Try better content nxt time". But, amidst all that, Veena Malik joined the chorus and probably took it too far by schooling the Indian tennis star on parenting. Sania, I am actually so worried for the kid. You guys took him to a sheesha place isn't it Hazardious? Also as far as I know Archie's is all about junk food which isn't good for athletes/Boys. You must know well as you are mother and athlete yourself? https://t.co/RRhaDfggus — VEENA MALIK (@iVeenaKhan) June 17, 2019 It all began when the Pakistani actress tweeted out: "Sania, I am actually so worried for the kid. You guys took him to a sheesha place isn't it Hazardious? Also as far as I know Archie's is all about junk food which isn't good for athletes/Boys. You must know well as you are mother and athlete yourself?". Veena,I hav not taken my kid to a sheesha place.

Not that it's any of your or the rest of the world's business cause I think I care bout my son a lot more than anyone else does :) secondly I am not Pakistan cricket team's dietician nor am I their mother or principal or teacher". To know when they sleep,wake up and eat .. thank you for your concern though .. means a lot âð½ https://t.co/R4lXSm794B — Sania Mirza (@MirzaSania) June 17, 2019 Mirza also mentioned the Pakistani actress' scandalous magazine cover but deleted the tweet soon after. Reconsidering her words, Mirza excluded the magazine taunt and tweeted again: "To know when they sleep, wake up and eat..thank you for your concern though..means a lot". But, despite deleting her tweet, Mirza, who had blocked the Pakistani actress by then, couldn't stop Veena from revealing the screenshot of her tweet on the microblogging website. Have some guts & don't delete ur tweets.Fortunately the technology has progressed so much that people can't deny their acts.Oh the magazine's cover u mentioned had morphed images.Also I can bringup all the controversies U have ever had bt I would rather not divert the discusion. pic.twitter.com/8qednFvEBz — VEENA MALIK (@iVeenaKhan) June 17, 2019 "Have some guts & don't delete ur tweets.

"Also your tweet shows that me being worried for my country and cricket team has triggered you so much. Thank you for opening up to the world and showing your true colors! Much Love Veena Malik," she tweeted. Retweeting a reply, Veena then left a piece of advice for the beloved 'bhabhi', bringing it to her attention that personal attacks will not take her anywhere. "Dearest Bhabhi, Attacking someone personally and reaching new heights of being low will not take you anywhere. Love, Veena Malik," she wrote on Twitter.
  3. After a fortnight of conjecture, Chelsea Football Club announced the exit of Maurizio Sarri as their manager through their website. The Italian will now join Serie A giants Juventus, penning a three-year long contract with the Bioncaneri. Unlike predecessors Jose Mourinho and Anotnio Conte, Sarri was never a popular figure at Chelsea. Despite a winning start and going unbeaten for the first 12 league games of the campaign, becoming the first manager in the history of the Premier League to do so, and a home win against champions Manchester City in December; a poor run of form and dip in results in the beginning of 2019 led to discontent among fans and higher level management alike. © Reuters In a club that is used to watching adaptive and reactive football, Sarri's stubborn and tactical approach did not sit well with fans. The Jorginho-Kante situation is a perfect example of this. The brilliant Frenchman was made to play away from his usual defensive midfield position to accommodate Sarri's system that needed Jorginho in the center of midfield to bridge the gap between defense and attack. This did not go down well with the fans. Even after securing Champions League football with a third place finish in the Premier League and the Europa League title, Sarri will not be the manager of Chelsea next year. It has since been debated whether the Italian was forced out of the club or he opted to seek greener pastures at Juventus. But it highlights a major problem for the West London club- the owner and board of the club never bought into Maurizio's philosophy and hiring a manger like him without believing in him is a poor decision, given Chelsea's previous track record with managers. Sarri joins Juventus as part of a clear project, to win the coveted UEFA Champions League trophy and to implement an attacking and possession based style of football while doing so. For Chelsea, however, uncertainty rings throughout Stamford Bridge regarding who will take up the role. Thank you and good luck for the future, Maurizio. ð pic.twitter.com/dGHzekBNPT — Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) June 16, 2019 Former Stamford Bridge hero Frank Lampard is the bookmaker's favourite with former players Jody Morris and Petr Cech set to take up roles as Assistant Manager and Technical Director respectively. It seems likely that Chelsea will be bringing the old guard back but they will be in charge of the backroom operations rather than taking the field. The appointments might excite fans of the club but it also highlights two major concerns, a major change of approach from owner Roman Abramovich and the Chelsea board; and the lack of options at Chelsea's disposal to replace Sarri. Only one year into his management career with tier-two side Derby County, Frank Lampard may be a Chelsea hero, but he's a very inexperienced appointment which is uncharacteristic of Abramovich and Chelsea. Petr Cech, having just retired from football, filling the role of Technical Director is another massive risk. © Reuters With a particularly hard dressing room to manage that has gone through 4 managers in 6 seasons, the transfer of star talisman Eden Hazard to Real Madrid and a potential two-window transfer ban from FIFA due to the breaches concerning the transfer of players who are under 18, the problems are piling up for the Blues. Other managerial options such as former blues boss Jose Mourinho and ex-Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri are unlikely to take charge of such a problematic dressing room. Lampard and the old guard look like Chelsea's best option. After a successful campaign with Derby County, very nearly clinching promotion to the Premier League, Lampard has shown a Mourinho-esque swagger in his time at Derby and his promotion of youth and positive tactics are big reasons why Chelsea would consider the Englishman for the job. However, overwhelming questions still remain unanswered for Chelsea. Can Lampard do the job for them? If not him, then whom? How will they cope with the potential transfer ban? How will they balance a problematic dressing room with an up-and-coming academy? All things said and done, however, the appointment comes at a time when a legend like Lampard's appointment could be the bounce that Chelsea fans need to reignite their passion for the club as they will kick-off their Premier League campaign at Old Trafford on 11th August.
  4. Me Too Movement in India came in when Tanushree Dutta finally broke her silence and narrated her ordeal in front of the public eye. She said she was sexually harassed by Nana Patekar on the sets of 'Horn Ok Pleassss'. Post this big revelation, there was a cascade of allegations that followed. Big names like Sajid Khan and Alok Nath also couldn't escape the wave of this movement. In Tanushree and Nana's case, there was a big development yesterday. Nana Patekar walked out freely with a clean chit as cops couldn't find any evidence against the veteran actor. Due to lack of evidence, allegations levelled against Nana have been claimed as false. Many supporters of Nana have been rebuking Tanushree for framing Nana in this case. But, Tanushree is clearly not in favour of the judgement. She is rather feeling disgusted to know that such a development has been taken in her case. Tanushree Dutta alleged harassment case against Nana Patekar: Nana Patekar's lawyer, Advocate Aniket Nikam says, "The entire allegations against my client were false from the inception. My client is innocent and justice will be served." (file pic) pic.twitter.com/c2zjRcZFzP — ANI (@ANI) June 13, 2019 She told Bombay Times, “This is disgusting because Nana Patekar has been trying to get a clean chit for a while, now. I have also mentioned this earlier in an interview that our witnesses have been getting threat calls, and they are being intimidated and pressured in every way so that they do not record their statements with the police. We have 10 witnesses, out of which only one-and-a-half statements have been recorded. The others have not even come forward, as they have got threat calls.” Tanushree added that she isn't much disappointed because she didn't expect much in this case. According to her, Nana is desperately trying to get back to doing films and wants his name to be cleared in the harassment case. She also added that the witnesses that the police have recorded the statements (in his favour) from are his friends. Tanushree is not giving up and will continue to fight. “My only hope of judgement now is from God. I will continue this fight,” said Tanushree. Interestingly, Nana has not even given a single statement justifying his innocence. We wonder if the whole case against Nana is farce or we are ignoring the cries of a woman in this world of men and are trying to brush a man's ego. What's your take? Let's us know in the comments section below.
  5. For a team that shocked hosts England earlier in the tournament, Pakistan looked a mere shadow of themselves during their disappointing 41-run loss against Australia in their fourth match at the ongoing ICC World Cup. From poor fielding, wayward bowling and irresponsible batting, Pakistan were overwhelmed in almost all the facets of the game. For a team that was tipped to scare the other teams by captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, Pakistan's off-day didn't just leave their skipper red-faced, but would have left their fans really disappointed. After their loss, there was a lot of criticism aimed at Pakistan on the social media by the cricket fans. But, during the game, a Pakistani fan rose to stardom after his emotionless picture in the stands surfaced on the social media. Asif Ali had already become a subject of immense criticism after dropping Aaron Finch in the slip cordon in the 13th over. But, it was his second attempt at another opportunity that left Pakistan loyalists baffled. © Reuters In the 37th over, David Warner had already notched up his hundred and was looking set to accelerate the innings. But, his decision to play the upper-cut off Wahab Riaz presented an opportunity to Pakistan to send him back into the hut. But, to the sheer horror of Pakistani fans, Ali dropped an absolute sitter. As the cameras panned over him, Ali cut himself a sorry figure, appearing apologetic with hands on his hips. As the cameras remained stationed on him for a few seconds, the reaction of a Pakistani fan in the backdrop perfectly captured the mood of the team. Struggling to come to terms with the fact that Ali had dropped a regulation catch, the fan simply stood there with hands on his waist before turning away. This Guy is the Mood of whole Awaam watching the teams fielding.... pic.twitter.com/RK9OTGQlXb — Taimoor Zaman (@taimoorze) June 12, 2019 The International Cricket Council (ICC) also shared a gif of the Pakistani fan's reaction on the social media which struck a chord with the netizens. After Australia's innings, a Pakistani reporter tracked down the man and sat with him to know why he reacted the way he did. “It was just a straightforward catch. It was really disappointing to see it happen right in front of me getting dropped. It probably showed all over my face," he said. But why didn't he heckle the cricketer, especially when Ali was stationed metres away from him? We found him! ð Interview coming soon... pic.twitter.com/u2pFYvUrUm — ICC (@ICC) June 12, 2019 “I could see it land on his hand and then he dropped it, so it was really disappointing to see it happen right in front of me. And I couldn't say anything because he had just come off a family tragedy, so I didn't shout at him,” the Pakistani fan added. The fan was referring to Ali's 19-month-old daughter's demise earlier this May, after which he was recalled to the side for the World Cup tournament. While Pakistan lost the match, their fan won a lot of praise for his thoughtful gesture in the stands.
  6. Exactly a week from now will mark the one month anniversary since the last episode of 'Game of Thrones' was aired across the globe. While fans have not yet been able to get over the shocker that was the final season of 'GOT', it seems that the makers are not in the mood to let the fans get over the pain and disappointment any time soon. © HBO After HBO submitted the dissatisfactory final episodes from its highly criticised final season of 'Game of Thrones' for Emmy consideration, fans have been left furious. They simply cannot wrap their heads around why the worst episodes from the worst 'GOT' season were sent for the nominations. © HBO According to a TV Guide report, 'GOT' Season 8's only appealing episodes, 'Winterfell' and 'A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms' have been overlooked in favour of the worst-rated episodes under the writing and directing categories. © HBO HBO submitted Miguel Sapochnik's name for 'Game of Thrones' season 8's 'The Long Night', David Nutter for 'The Last of the Starks', and DB Weiss and David Benioff for 'The Iron Throne', in the Best Directing category. Benioff and Weiss' script for the finale - 'The Iron Throne' - was the only submission in the Best Writing category. Fans are fuming at all the possibilities that this presents. so who thought it was a good idea for hbo to submit 8x06 of game of thrones for an emmy nomination in best writing category when this episode is of the most boring season finales to ever exist pic.twitter.com/UkI5dGFPdG — ellie (@odairannies) June 11, 2019 TFW you realize the best episode of #GameOfThrones' last season—"A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms," obviously—is submitted for neither Directing nor Writing at the #Emmys. pic.twitter.com/PpSDtxjI4q — Myles McNutt (@Memles) June 10, 2019 you: surely it's been a month and you've run out of new Game of Thrones things to complain about me: THEY DIDN'T SUBMIT A KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS FOR OUTSTANDING WRITING OR DIRECTING AT THE EMMYS — Victoria Edel (@victoriaedel) June 10, 2019 The #GameofThrones team submitted their episodes for writing and directing Emmy categories and none of the ones submitted are the best one of the season. Hate to see it. pic.twitter.com/O6pWXPO64H — Joanna Robinson (@jowrotethis) June 10, 2019
  7. Winning two matches in as many outings, the Indian cricket team is undoubtedly in scintillating form in the ongoing ICC World Cup. Giving South Africa a run for their money and then, getting the better of Australia, the 'Men in Blue' are surely living up the reputation as one of the top contenders for the coveted title this year. But, after a fairly successful start in the tournament, the Indian team was dealt with a major blow after it was announced that Shikhar Dhawan was ruled out for about two to three weeks owing to a hairline fracture on his left thumb. After some nervy starts, the Indian opener rediscovered his form on the back of a match-winning knock of 117 runs against Australia. And, his injury surely comes as a setback for both himself and his team. © Reuters In a bid to fill the void left by his injury, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to fly in swashbuckling Rishabh Pant to England but it's still not clear if the youngster will actually get a chance to break into India's playing XI anytime soon. On the other hand, the BCCI is keeping close tabs on Dhawan, who has been given a week to prove his fitness. It all seems like a bad dream for the Delhi batsman who is one of the most successful batsmen for India (with six hundreds) in ICC tournaments, only behind Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly. He may be down, but surely not out (just yet) - something Dhawan highlighted in his recent post on social media. Kabhimehekkitarah hum gulon se udtehain... Kabhidhuyeinkitarah hum parbaton se udtehain... Ye kainchiyaanhumeinudne se khaakrokengi... Ke hum paron se nahinhoslon se udtehain...#DrRahatIndori Ji pic.twitter.com/h5wzU2Yl4H — ShikharDhawan (@SDhawan25) June 12, 2019 In an inspirational tweet, the 33-year-old shared a verse from Dr RahatIndori's poem, signalling his intentions. "Kabhi mehek ki tarah hum gulon se udte hain...Kabhi dhuyein ki tarah hum parbaton se udtehain...Ye kainchiyaan humein udne se khaak rokengi...Ke hum paron se nahin hoslon se udte hain...#DrRahatIndori Ji," Dhawan tweeted. While fans hope Dhawan recovers in time to lead the charge for his team, Virat Kohli-led India will be eager to continue their fine run when they lock horns with New Zealand at Trent Bridge on 13th June.
  8. Going into the ICC World Cup, the Indian cricket team was tipped as one of the favourites to lift the coveted trophy in England & Wales this year. Staying true to their reputation, Team India made their intentions pretty clear by defeating the likes of South Africa and Australia to post consecutive wins in the ongoing tournament. Apart from their victories, it's the domination of the Indian team in almost all facets of the game that has allowed them to establish themselves as serious contenders this year - something that was validated by Michael Vaughan after their triumph over Australia. But, just when you thought all was going well, the 'Men in Blue' were dealt a major blow after the disclosure of Shikhar Dhawan's injury. The Indian opener, who rediscovered his form with a brilliant knock of 117 runs against Australia, has been ruled out for about two to three weeks owing to an alleged hairline fracture on his left thumb. The left-hander was struck on his left thumb by a Nathan Coulter-Nile's bouncer during India's 36-run win over Australia on 9th June. © Reuters The news has surely got the Indian team in a spot of bother. For a team that relies heavily on their top three, India will undeniably miss Dhawan at the top especially after his return to form following some nervy starts earlier. But, that's not the only thing that has got the Indian team management and selectors in a fix. Dhawan's absence is bound to disrupt Team India's batting line-up and team balance. His injury means that India will now have to find someone to replace him at the top while ensuring the middle-order stays intact. And, as the Indian selectors and team management consider viable options, the chorus on social media seems to be in support of Rishabh Pant. The Delhi batsman has been one of the finds for India in the past few months. His breathtaking strokeplay and aggressive batting style is not only capable of taking on the best bowling attacks, but also looks pleasing to the eye - something that has made him a fan-favourite in a short period of time. © Reuters But, despite his heroics on overseas tours and the IPL earlier this year, Pant was overlooked for Team India's 15-man squad for the ICC World Cup - something that caused quite an uproar on the social media. Two matches into the World Cup, Dhawan's injury has got the Indian selectors facing a similar situation where the fans are gearing up to slam them if they overlook Pant again. But, is he worth it? Going by his form and ability with the willow, any team would be lucky to have a batsman as capable as Pant in their batting line-up. But, the current situation is not about Pant or his batting capabilities, it's about Team India and maintaining its balance. Don't agree? Allow us to help you understand. With Dhawan leaving a void at the top, the Indian team management is likely to push KL Rahul to the opening slot alongside Rohit Sharma - an obvious choice considering he's well acclimatised to the conditions. Now, Rahul's ascension in the line-up leaves the no. 4 slot vacant which holds key to Indian batting order's stability. © Reuters Now, Pant cannot just walk into the Indian team and open the innings. That's just too big a risk in a tournament of World Cup's stature. He can surely be vital for the middle-order, but being one-dimensional is not going to help his cause. With MS Dhoni being an immovable object in the wicket-keeping role, Pant cannot be included just for his batting skills. If you take a look at India's middle-order, the likes of Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya are capable of contributing with both bat and ball. Thus, when it comes to finding a potential replacement following Dhawan's injury, Vijay Shankar, and not Pant, appears to be the perfect fit in relation to the team balance. Shankar is a versatile batsman who is capable of batting anywhere in the middle. He is more than capable of holding the fort at one end in case of a collapse, and his wide array of strokes adequately allows him to accelerate the innings at the death overs. And, that's not all. Shankar's inclusion in the Indian team will not only bolster their batting, but will also add teeth to their bowling line-up - something that has left Pant in the shadows lately. In case of a bad day for frontline bowlers, Shankar can ease the pressure off by bowling in some of his medium-paced deliveries and giving his captain an extra option with the ball. In all fairness, Pant is a cricketer Team India can surely use, but cannot afford owing to the team balance. And, right now, given the situation, India needs Shankar who doesn't just fit the bill, but can prove to be crucial in India's dreams of clinching their third World Cup title this year.
  9. Going into the tournament, fans and experts had identified a handful of players who would go to play a crucial role in Team India's campaign at the ICC World Cup. The first and most obvious candidate is of course captain Virat Kohli whose batting prowess and leadership skills are expected to get his team all the way. Amongst other probables who were expected to make a mark, Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal were also looked upon as key players for India. While everyone expected Bumrah to do the damage with his searing pace and precision in line and lengths early on, Chahal was bestowed with the responsibility of doing the damage with his cunning variations in the middle order - a script that dictated South Africa's fate in their clash in Southampaton on 5th June. Winning the toss and deciding to bat, the Proteas were, to an extent, conned into believing that the conditions were suited for batting and posting a formidable total upfront. But, popular to contrary perception, the South African batting unit was picked apart by a spectacular show from Bumrah and Chahal. Reuters It all began in the fourth over, when Bumrah's tight angle got Hashim Amla (6) stuck into a stop-shot, eventually forcing an outside edge that went straight into the hands of Rohit Sharma at second slip. In his next over, Bumrah's cunning plan - with adequate support from Kohli - led to the dismissal of Quinton de Kock (10). With their side reeling at 24/2, South Africa needed a strong partnership which eventually came through the efforts of and Faf du Plessis (38) and Rassie van der Dussen (22). With the two Proteas batsmen rebuilding their innings by adding 54 runs for the third wicket, India needed to counter the potential threat. And, that's when Chahal's spin wizardry came to the fore. Reuters In what arguably turned out to be one of the deliveries of the tournament, Chahal's drift and rip on the ball turned Van der Dussen into a laughing stock after his reverse-sweep led to a dismissal. It was undeniably a vital breakthrough, but Chahal wasn't done yet. In fact, the Indian leg-spinner had another gem of a delivery up his sleeves for opposition captain Du Plessis who was outfoxed in a classic spinner's dismissal. pic.twitter.com/UjzhO7fCFc — Maqbool (@im_maqbool) June 5, 2019 pic.twitter.com/8i5QmbkmHa — Maqbool (@im_maqbool) June 5, 2019 At the other end, his spin-bowling partner Kuldeep Yadav, too, joined the party and dismissed JP Duminy (3) in the 23rd over after wrapping him in front of the stumps. Though Duminy went for the review, but even the DRS couldn't save him following his poor shot-selection. Reuters Despite two wickets in his kitty, Chahal's breakthrough act continued as he once again helped his side in breaking the partnership. David Miller (31) and Andile Phehlukwayo (34) had added 46 runs for the sixth wicket when Chahal removed the former in a simple caught and bowled dismissal in the 36th over. Few overs later, Chahal struck again to send Phehlukwayo back into the hut after foxing him in the length to allow MS Dhoni to complete a regulation stumping. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, too, got his name under the wickets column after claiming the scalps of Chris Morris (42) and Imran Tahir (0) in the final over as the Proteas crumbled to 227/9 in 50 overs. Reuters While every Indian bowler contributed in their own way, it was undoubtedly Bumrah and Chahal whose impressive figures of 2-35 and 4-51 respectively earned them plaudits from fans and pundits alike. Fantastic effort by the bowlers to restrict South Africa to 227. Bumrah began exceptionally and the wrist spinners capitalised, Chahal was superb in his 10 overs and I back India to chase down this total. #INDvSA — VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) June 5, 2019 Jasprit Bumrah is simply sensational. — Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) June 5, 2019 on chahal TV tonight chahal will have so much to ask chahal #CWC19 #INDvSA — Gaurav Kalra (@gauravkalra75) June 5, 2019 23 days ago some mercy and amazing gesture for DeKock, but today no mercy .

  10. iTunes is regarded as one of the most iconic music applications, that has been a part of Apple's ecosystem for 18 years. It was initially used to manage music for Apple's iPod and iPhone products and later became a comprehensive store for selling music, movies and TV shows, that was later expanded to devices such as the iPad and Apple TV. However, reports are now suggesting that the Cupertino giant is now going to bid goodbye to the iconic application and replace it with existing applications that support subscription services. © Apple Bloomberg reports that Apple is expected to announce three separate apps for music, TV and podcasts that will basically replace the iTunes store. The move is said to come to streamline content on separate platforms. Apple has already announced a new Apple TV+ service and it seems like it may be the reason for the shutting down of iTunes. The move is expected to be announced tonight at Apple's annual WWDC event. Currently, the iTunes application is only available on MacBooks and iMacs as iPhones and iPads already offer separate applications for TV, Music and Podcast. By streamlining these apps, Apple will become a multifaceted service provider as well. © Apple Due to this report, Apple users have already responded with concerns on Twitter. However, Apple has assured that music, movies and TV shows that have already been purchased by users from iTunes will still be available on the Music app with an Apple Music subscription. Users who have redeemed iTunes gift cards will also be credited to the Apple ID balance. This balance can be later used on the App Store, upgrade iCloud storage or for buying one of the subscription services from Apple. Source: Bloomberg
  11. Ahead of the ICC World Cup 2019 matchup between West Indies and Pakistan, we called both the teams two of the most unpredictable sides of the tournament who could either do exceedingly well and look like world champions or crash and burn like test dummies. Now, after experiencing the way things went down during the game, it would be an educated guess to say which side played like the kings and the other, their squires. Sarfaraz Ahmed's squad began their 2019 World Cup journey with one of the worst performances in cricketing history for the country. Scoring a total of 105 runs before getting all out in the 22nd over of their innings and thanks to Chirs 'Universe Boss' Gayle's crackling start to the Windies innings, the Carrabean stars were able to wrap up the game quickly and enjoy their evening celebrating the easy win. Credit: Reuters With some of their top batsmen like Imam-ul-Haq, Haris Sohail and the skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed, himself returning back to the pavilion with their score in single digits, it seems as if, Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate, is their only hope. The 21-year-old seems to be ahead of the Pakistani cricket team in both, batting skills and the confidence to banter against a team like India. She displayed her prowess in both departments during the opening event of the Cricket World Cup 2019 during the '60-Second Challenge' in which two representatives from every participating nation were to score the maximum number of runs in a minute. Representing Pakistan were Malala and cricketer Azhar Ali and finished second from the bottom. The Indian duo of Bollywood fame Farhan Akhtar and former Indian head coach Anil Kumble were not in their top form and finished rock bottom at the event. Credit: Twitter “I really enjoyed playing here today. We were okay, not too bad… but India came last,” the Nobel Prize winner had said after the challenge got over. Now, the way the national team of Pakistan played against Jason Holder's boys, it might not be a bad idea to give Malala and her batting skills a shot in the next game and it is something the people of the Twitter world agree on, as well: Cant believe Malala Scored better than Farhan Azimi in Street Cricket Contest. #PakvWI — John Wick (@malikasimriaz) May 30, 2019 #PAKvWI @windiescricket will win definitely in style..â @TheRealPCB Need batting performance of @Malala to winðð — bhavesh kumar shakey (@Shakeybhavesh) May 31, 2019 Dont blame us for this batting performance.

  12. Let's admit it, relationships can be pretty unpredictable. You may love and laugh one minute and all of a sudden find yourself in a heated argument over one of the most senseless subjects. Don't tell us it hasn't happened to you ever, because we won't believe it. But again, that's how any relationship is like, isn't it? It's just that the impact of the same is a lot more harsh when the argument or fight happens to occur in your romantic relationship. Heck, it becomes all the more difficult because we never know how best to patch-up after an argument with our partner. Now the key to this is communication, but that itself becomes such a start because we simply don't know how to initiate a conversation after a fight. But worry not, these foolproof ways of starting a conversation with your partner will not put you in a spot. 1. Text Her © Getty Images If you're too anxious about calling her, then drop her a text expressing how you feel or maybe ask them how they're feeling. That is sure to get you a response. 2. Call Her © Getty Images We always recommend calling over all else. Why? Because that's the easiest way of showing you care and also that you're thinking about them. If they pick up, that's half the problem solved right there. *Winks* 3. Seek A Middle-Ground © Getty Images That is until the argument/fight wasn't your fault. Because if it was, then there should be no hesitation in apologising for whatever you got wrong. 4. Forgive & Forget © Getty Images If it wasn't a great showdown or something major, consider the “raat gayi, baat gayi” route. No matter who is at fault, we suggest that (reasonable) forgiveness and moving beyond differences are the biggest requirements in a relationship. 5. Plan A Date & Ask Them Out © Getty Images Set up a date and then invite your partner to hang out with you. The fact that you wish to spend time with them even after the fight shows that you are making efforts and feel genuinely about reconciliations.
  13. The second half of the UEFA Europa League final between Chelsea and Arsenal has to be engraved in the heart and mind of Eden Hazard for the rest of his life. While teammates Olivier Giroud and Pedro provided a solid 2-0 lead to the Blues, it was the Belgian who put the final nail in the coffin for the Gunners when he scored a penalty and a cheeky grounded shot in the 65th and 72nd minutes, respectively. KING. ð@HazardEden10 ð #UELfinal pic.twitter.com/YwrbcSOYif — Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) May 29, 2019 After the final whistle blew and the ceremony got over, Hazard decided to make an official announcement about his thoughts of parting ways with Chelsea, a club that not only was a house to him for the past seven years but also helped him realise his dreams of playing in the Premier League. "I think it's a goodbye, but in football you never know," he told BT Sport to confirm what a lot of us were expecting for a long time now. Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri said: "I know he wants to leave and I have to respect his decision." "He is a wonderful player. It took two or three months for me to understand him as a man and now I do, he's a wonderful man." "He's an extraordinary player. He is a strange boy but when he understands it is extraordinary." Hazard has been phenomenal for the Blues ever since joining them back in 2012. He has made a total of 352 appearances for the club and his two Europa League final goals moves his tally to 110 and 92 assists while winning the Premier League (2), Europa League (2), FA Cup (1) and the League Cup (1). He was also honoured with the PFA Player of the Year award and the FWA Player of the year award as a member of the team. Flooded with emotions, Chelsea fans took to Twitter to show their gratitude for the 28-year-old boy wonder for everything he has done for the club and wished him luck for wherever he plays next (we know it's going to be Real Madrid, isn't it?). 132 seconds on Chelsea & Eden mutha-f*cking Hazard pic.twitter.com/aetZhNWDDh — Alex Goldberg (@AlexGoldberg_) May 29, 2019 2012 - Didier Drogba scores to win Chelsea the Champions League and leaves a legend. 2019 - Eden Hazard scores twice to win Chelsea the Europa League and is leaving a legend.

  14. On May 24th, people working in and around sector 18 of Cyber City got the shock of their lives, when they saw a woman standing on the edge of a five-storey building's terrace. According to reports and the videos and pictures people clicked, the woman was threatening to jump off the building. © for representation Turns out, it was the woman's office building, and she took this extreme step because she was upset that she was fired. Reportedly, she works at a private consultancy firm and was upset and sad that she wasn't confirmed after her probation period got over. When her colleagues heard about it, they rushed to the terrace and tried persuading her to come down. She threatened that she will jump off if the office management didn't hire her back as a permanent employee. In some pictures and video, there's a man who carefully approaches her and convinces her to come off the edge. © Twitter Inspector Vivek Kundu, SHO of Sector 18 police station told The Times Of India, "On May 24, when she got to know that the company was not hiring her as a permanent employee, following the end of her probation period, she threatened to kill herself." The woman came down only after the company assured to hire her back. According to the company manager, she wasn't hired after her probation because her performance wasn't satisfactory. However, according to the woman she was being punished for standing up against the management since "they did not have the proper environment for women empowerment." To all those people reading this story, threatening to kill oneself is not a solution to any problem. If someone is unhappy with your performance, prove them wrong with your hard work, instead of taking such extreme measures to get your job back. Please do not try to recreate what this woman did, this is not cool at all.
  15. Can you guess who's the second most important person, after the bride-groom of course, at any wedding? It's not the family members or relatives. It's the pundit aka the priest who is given the duty to perform their wedding. While the families usually thank the priest for performing the rituals and everything, there's one groom who is probably cursing his wedding priest right now. In a bizarre incident, a priest in Madhya Pradesh, who performed a couple's wedding ran away with the bride two weeks after their wedding. The incident happened in Tori Bagrod, Sironj city. The couple got married on May 7 and the priest ran away with the bride on May 23. Pexels In fact, on May 23rd, the priest was supposed to perform another wedding, but when people couldn't locate him they searched and found out that he had eloped with the woman, who had come to her parents' house as per the post wedding rituals. Twitter According to a report in Dainik Bhaskar, the girl's relatives have registered a complaint. According to the locals, the bride and the priest, who is already married and has two kids, were in a relationship since the past two years. In fact, the priest's whole family was missing since that day and so is the jewellery and cash worth over Rs 1.5 lakh that the bride ran away with. While this entire incident is bizarre, we feel really bad for the groom.
  16. Remember Payal Rohatgi, the social media sensation? Well, I hope you detected the sarcasm in that very statement. But why am I talking about her? That's because she's back again, to indulge in some mindless banter, to irk the proletariats in the worst way possible. It's just her visible affinity to waste time over Twitter and other forms of social media, and this time around, she's outdone herself again. © Twitter Recently, over a Tweet, the 'damsel in distress' spoke about the age-old practice of Sati and called Raja Ram Mohan Roy a traitor. And now, she demands a so-called 'Hindu' nation. Twitter is, of course, furious over her lopsided thought process, but we can't help and substantiate a good amount of humour through her thread. Truth Behind Sati Pratha in India https://t.co/x1vn5l6Xcy via @YouTube #Jauhar was an incident related to Padmavati during Mughal Khiljis invasion. Later society with d help of traitors like Raja Ram who Britishers used 2 divide society made Sati into an evil forceful practiceð — PAYAL ROHATGI & Team -BHAKTS of BHAGWAN RAM (@Payal_Rohatgi) 26 May 2019 So, as we all know, Raja Ram Mohan Roy was a social reformer, known for his efforts to abolish the practice of Sati and child marriage. But after Payal tweeted a video on the Sati tradition named 'the truth behind Sati Pratha', she called Ram Mohan Roy a traitor , saying "#Jauhar was an incident related to Padmavati [movie] during Mughal Khiljis invasion. Later society, with the help of traitors like Raja Ram, who Britishers used to divide society, made Sati into an evil forceful practice. (sic)" She also called him a 'chamcha', saying the Britishers used him to 'defame the Sati Tradition' © Twitter Her Tweet said: "No he was a chamcha to Britishers who used him to defame the Sati tradition. Sati tradition was not compulsory but was introduced to prevent the prostitution of Hindu wives by the hands of Mughal invaders. It was the woman's choice. #FeministsofIndia Sati was not regressive."

Jauhar happened only when Rajputs fought with Mughals or Afghans, as when Mughals defeat them, they treated women like animals. — भारत नरà¥à¤¶ (@ResoluteAction) 26 May 2019 In response to this outpour, India's darling stated that she was not trying to glorify Sati Pratha, while raising the issue of Triple Talaaq. "I am not glorifying it, I am putting across the history of its origin. It was due to Mughal invaders that #Sati started in the 1st place. Understand your history. And yes no one is practising it NOW nor am I asking anyone to practice it. But #TripleTalaq is still ON. (sic)" - Payal Rohatgi on Twitter.

  17. 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.

  19. Online shopping has made our lives so much easier. You can buy whatever you want at the click of a button while sitting in the comfort of your rooms. But, at times, it happens that you buy something and realise that you don't need it anymore or just regret buying it. Something similar happened with Evie Schwerin, an Amazon Prime member. According to Geek Wire, Schwerin bought a product from Amazon and realised that she already had that product. Generally, when you buy something online, you return it within 30 days. That's the generic return policy most e-commerce portals have. Instagram In Schwerin's case, due to some issues, she was unable to return her product. So, after four failed attempts, she decided to take her complaint directly to the top and went directly to CEO Jeff Bezos to return the purchase. Bezos was having an annual shareholder meeting in Seattle and during the Q&A session, the woman said: "Could you please return this for me?" Bezos was quick to respond and his reply was epic, "My apologies that you had to use this unusual venue to accomplish what should be a much simpler task. We'll also look into the root cause of why that happened." Bezos then went on to ask, "Anybody else have anything they need to return?" That's a good idea, actually. If only someone can fund our trip to Seattle, we too can probably go and return the products directly to Bezos.
  20. The verdict is finally here, and the Indian citizens have finally declared their leader of choice for the next five years. Late last evening, as the nation broke into a collective celebration, especially the Bharatiya Janata Party's right-wing supporters who expressed their joy by distributing sweets and breaking into a dance on the streets, losing parties wondered how to soothe the pain that bothered them so. © Twitter And when we talk about losing parties, who stands as a better example than BJP's arch rivals and opposition, Congress. With less than 100 seats to itself, the Indian National Congress has found itself at a loss even this time, much like in 2014. However, amongst the winners from the party is one name who has been an active face of the Congress over the years. Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, who was contesting the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections from the Thiruvananthapuram constituency in Kerala. Final results show that he has won from his constituency with over 40 per cent votes ahead of BJP's Kummanam Rajasekharan who bagged just over 30 per cent votes for himself. © Twitter However, this win hasn't pleased the wordsmith politician, who admitted that he feels like a batsman who has scored a century while his team has lost. He made this comment late last afternoon when it was gradually becoming more and more obvious that PM Modi-led BJP would come back to power with majority. As my lead nears 50,000 with 72% counted, i feel like a batsman who has scored a century while his team has lost! It's a bittersweet emotion I will take some time to reflect on. #TharoorForTvm — Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) May 23, 2019 We can totally understand that bittersweet feeling Mr. Tharoor but regardless of the bigger verdict, congratulations on the hatrick win you have scored!
  21. While the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are probably celebrating their victory and the chance of running the country for another 5 years, there's one guy who is crying his heart out for losing in the Lok Sabha 2019 elections. YouTube Neetu Shuttern Wala, who hails from Jalandhar, stood independently in the recently held polls and claims to have gotten only 5 votes. When he was being interviewed, he broke down before the camera and started crying. Well, he is crying not because of the alleged 5 votes. He is crying because he got 5 votes despite having 9 people in his own family. Yes, his own family members betrayed him and didn't vote for him. The man, while wiping his tears, blamed his family and accused the EVM machines of tampering in the voting process, which resulted in his loss. The reporter then proceeded to leave no stone unturned to rub salt on the poor guy's wounds and asked him, "When your own family doesn't support you, how can you expect outsiders to help you?" Well, the man is so disheartened with the results that he has decided to not run for the elections ever again. We feel you man, we really do! But, people on Twitter are having a field day laughing at his misery.

  22. Our society may be divided into many cultures and people who follow different religions, but the common thread lies in the belief that humanity is the biggest religion. The holy month of Ramzan is going on right now and setting a beautiful example of communal harmony, the Shri Sita Ram temple in Ayodhya hosted an Iftar feast proving that the world is a better place when we have love in our heart. Also, this is not the first time this happened, and the priest of the temple explained that they plan on continuing this tradition in the future as well.

  23. Vivek Oberoi is back in the game and how! Yesterday, he shared a very distasteful meme about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan comparing her personal life to the exit poll results. He compared Salman Khan and Aishwarya's relationship with 'Opinion Poll', his relationship with her as 'Exit Poll' and the 'result' is her relationship with Abhishek Bachchan. After he tweeted that crass meme, he faced the wrath of not only social media users but also Bollywood celebrities. Vivek's team even clarified that there's something wrong with his account or maybe it's hacked. © Twitter/Vivek Oberoi Now, in the morning, he went on to delete that distasteful meme that targeted Aishwarya and even apologised for the same. He wrote, “Sometimes what appears to be funny and harmless at first glance to one, may not be so to others. I have spent the last 10 years empowering more than 2000 underprivileged girls, I can't even think of being disrespectful to any woman ever.” Sometimes what appears to be funny and harmless at first glance to one, may not be so to others. I have spent the last 10 years empowering more than 2000 underprivileged girls, I cant even think of being disrespectful to any woman ever. — Vivek Anand Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) May 21, 2019 He also tweeted, “Even if one woman is offended by my reply to the meme, it calls for remedial action. Apologies. tweet deleted." Even if one woman is offended by my reply to the meme, it calls for remedial action. Apologiesðð» tweet deleted. — Vivek Anand Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) May 21, 2019 This apology should have come yesterday but this came after social media users started targeting him for being so low. Interestingly, yesterday the actor had a very different take on the meme that went viral. He told ANI, "Those who are in the meme have no objection while scores of politicians are trying to politicise the issue. They don't work on issues but start their politics on such non-issues. There is a 'Didi' in West Bengal who puts people behind jail for a meme. Now, these people are demanding to put Vivek Oberoi behind bars. They were unable to stop my film and hence are now trying to put me behind bars." Vivek Oberoi speaks on Sonam Kapoor's reaction to his tweet (on exit polls), "...Aap apni filmon mein thoda kam overact karein aur social media pe thoda kam overreact karein. I've been working in women empowerment for 10 yrs now. I don't think this is hurting anyone's sentiments" pic.twitter.com/pOWAwO29N6 — ANI (@ANI) May 20, 2019 He also said that he has no issues in saying sorry but posed a question that what wrong has he done. He further said that he just appreciated the person for the meme and shared it just for fun. He has no idea why people made such a huge issue out of it. We have just one question for you, Vivek - Why would you delete the meme from your Twitter timeline if it wasn't that 'big a deal'?
  24. A couple of days ago, Indian sprinter and Olympian, Dutee Chand came out to talk about being in a same-*** relationship with a 19-year-old girl from her hometown of Chaka Gopalpur in Odisha for the past five years. "I have found someone who is my soulmate. I believe everyone should have the freedom to be with whoever they decide they want to be with. I have always supported the rights of those who want to be in a same-*** relationship. It is an individual person's choice," she had told The Indian Express while becoming the very first Indian athlete to go public about her homosexuality. "She is from my town and a sports fan herself. She read about the struggles that I have gone through to make a career in sports and told me that she was inspired by my story. That is how we came in touch with each other," she had added in the interview. © Reuters Chand also spoke about how her eldest sister was completely against this and threatened Dutee of imprisonment. She also spoke about how in the past five years, her parents were not against her sexual preference. However, a day since Chand made her sexuality public, her mother Akhoji Chand told ANI, that it is impossible for her to accept this relationship of hers due to reasons other than homophobia, incest. "Dutee wants to marry a girl, who is the daughter of my niece, so she is my grand-daughter. In this relation, Dutee will be like a mother of that girl. Then how will it be possible in our society in Odisha," Akhoji told ANI. "I told her (Dutee) that I cannot accept this. She told me that the court has given the order. When I asked which court has given you such order, she told me that High court. I told her that I'm alive here and you are bringing orders from the court. She told me that yes court has given order and all the mentors are supporting me. (She asked) whether you will support me or not. I asked which Sir, Shiv Sir, Gagan Sir or Samanta sir, Achyut Samant of KIIT college," she said. "She told that I'll do everything by the help of them. I told her that I'll like to talk to them, but she avoided it. So day before yesterday, I told my elder daughter Saraswati that I don't know where they are staying, you take me to them. Saraswati took me to them but he (Achyut Samant of KIIT) had already left for Delhi and yesterday when all these things were happening." "I want that she (Dutee) should focus on her sports as the government wants. Government has given a lot of money to her for the sake of the country. Dutee may not keep father and mother's name but she should keep the prestige of the nation through her sports," Akhoji added. © Reuters In 2018, the Indian Supreme Court did decriminalise same-*** relationships (although gay marriages are still illegal), the laws about incest are still in the grey. While being in a sexual relationship with a family member in India is not illegal or a punishable crime, the Hindu Marriage Act says that two people cannot marry if they are within the “prohibited degree of relationship”.
  25. One of the greatest television shows, 'Game of Thrones', ended with one of the worst possible conclusions that the writers of the show could have come up with. According to George RR Martin, writers David Benidoff and D.B. Weiss let the internet gossip get the better of them and forced them to diverge from the books' story in order to make the show more unpredictable and exciting. With the emerging plot holes and unfinished subplots of the show due to random changes in the original story, the risk taken by the show writers failed so miserably that the fans of the series even filed a petition for the eighth and final season of the show be rewritten and remade. ** SPOILERS AHEAD ** In the final 15-20 minutes of the finale, the writers managed to screw up their fanbase even more when in an open house assembly of the most influential people of the Seven Kingdoms got together to “choose” the next ruler of the land. And after Tyrion's half-hearted line about why 'stories are the most powerful weapon in society', they decided to choose Bran Stark, yes, Brandon 'The Broken' Stark as the “King of the Six Kingdoms and the Protector of the Realm” as Sansa decided to name herself the independent Queen of the North. Bran, the boy with the exceptional powers of controlling flying crows and roll up his eyes like the freaking Undertaker, will now be sitting on the Iron Throne (what's left of it, anyway). He was literally the root cause of Hodor dying and the Night King marching South to destroy Winterfell, killing thousands of soldiers, innocent women and children. He then let Theon Greyjoy die right in front of his supernatural eyes and showed absolutely zero efforts towards Daenerys Targaryan's manslaughter over King's Landing as he disappeared from the scenario altogether. Furthermore, when he did in fact become the King, he did not pardon Jon's exile and let him join the Night's Watch and spend his lifetime as a wildling. Anyhow, after the disappointing finale, people on Twitter have taken the task of comparing Bran's rise to the throne to the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi: Today Bran sits on Throne on 23rd Modi ji will. #GOTFinale #Namoagain — Kamlesh Dorge (@Dorgekamlesh) May 20, 2019 Bran is like Narendra Modi. Did nothing the whole time. Tells a story everyone believes. Gets choosen because there is no other option.#GameOfThronesFinale — Neeraj Harpude (@Neerajharpude) May 20, 2019 Perhaps Modi will win the six kingdoms and will sit on the Iron Throne after Bran the Broken, as they have decided to choose going forward.#GameOfThronesFinale #GoTS8 #GoT8 #GameOfThrones #ExitPoll2019 #Exitpoll2019 #ExitPoll #exitpollresults #2019Elections #TheFinalEpisode — Vaseem (@BhandariVaseem) May 20, 2019 BRAN has 4 letters so does MODI. Coincidence? I think not. — Jinav Satra (@jinavs) May 20, 2019 Not sure if it was PM Modi or Bran Stark in the #modipressconference 'A man takes no question!' — sushant saklani (@VisheshTippanee) May 17, 2019 bran and modi. we all know that — Sushil Subedi (@xxySus14) May 19, 2019 Remember when everyone trolled Modi for being Bran throughout S8. I guess he knew the endingð. — Harshvardhan Karn (@harshvkarn) May 20, 2019
