  1. Bad boy Badshah is Bollywood's reigning rapper, way before since Tareefan hit the radio stations and found itself on everybody's playlist. Fame and success have come along Badshah's way and he doesn't shy away from showing it off. Caught by our spy cams at the airport, Badshah was seen wearing a super-expensive tracksuit jacket, that only a Badshah could afford. Take a look for yourself. © Viral Bhayani Seen wearing a blue tracksuit jacket with red sleeves, Badshah paired it with grey gym shorts and Nike Air Jordan's. A price-by-price breakdown of each item will definitely blow your mind! © Balenciaga First up, is the oversized jacket. Courtesy of Balenciaga (a brand by which many B-town celebs swear too!), the oversized shell track jacket costs a whopping $950 (approx. Rs.63,650 only!). While you are still stuck on that figure, the jacket is lightweight with a two-way zip fastening and made in Italy (talk about videshi clothes). © Viral Bhayani If you are a Badshah follower and have stalked his social media, then you know that he is one of the Bollywood brand ambassadors for Balenciaga. And boy, he doesn't shy away from showing off his branded clothing. Considering B-towns love for the brand it makes us wanna buy something like this as well. (Though all we can afford is a rip-off) © Nike While the jacket may be the most expensive item of the entire look, don't forget to miss out the Air Jordan's. They aren't your regular Jordans but a retro alternate version, that cost another $205 (approx Rs. 13,700) Well the price of both these items is making our mind go numb. Moral of the story? Badshah is not only the Badshah of rap but also the Badshah of expensive tastes!
  2. Be it the La Liga, the Champions League, or the World Cup, every tournament invariably becomes about these two – Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. It has been 10 years since these two have dominated the world stage by winning all the Ballon D'Or trophies between them. The world has never been fixated on and divided by just two players so much. Yes, we still have the Pele vs Maradona debate but their careers hardly overlapped in terms of playing years. Source: Reuters Cup after cup, Messi has been carrying the expectations of not just his own nation, Argentina, but of millions of fans who worship him and consider him to be from another planet. It's an open secret that if Leo manages to lift the World Cup, he will stamp his authority as the greatest player of all time. However, the World Cup has eluded Messi. He came within touching distance of lifting it in 2014, but an extra time stunner by Goetze saw Germany lifting the cup. Source: Reuters Last night, people from around the world witnessed the brilliance of Ronaldo, when he struck 3 goals, taking his hat-trick tally to 51. What's more special is that he managed to score the goals against a formidable Spanish squad and, arguadbly, the world's best goalkeeper De Gea. He lit up the World Cup and gave an open challenge to Messi after stroking his chin while celebrating the first goal. It was an inkling that he's the G.O.A.T. – Greatest of all time. Source: Reuters They are such fierce competitors that both of them up their game after seeing the other perform. Will Messi be able to give the world reasons to celebrate ecstatically, just like Ronaldo did last night? Or will the pressure weigh too heavily on him as Argentina face World Cup debutants Iceland up first? We hope for the former! Messi vs Ronaldo at the World Cups The legends are almost neck-to-neck as far as records are concerned - Messi: Games: 15 Goals: 5 Assists: 3 Ronaldo: Games: 14 Goals: 6 Assists: 2 (Updated after last night's Spain vs Portugal game) Argentina play debutants Iceland today at 6:30 pm IST
  3. Everyone knows that Cristiano Ronaldo does Cristiano Ronaldo things. However, as CR 7 was implicated of tax evasion by Spanish authorities, the troll army was ready to deride him yet again. And Cristiano Ronaldo made a mockery of his haters, for the millionth time by scoring a hat-trick against the nation whose judicial system had implicated him earlier in the day. Source: Reuters Make no mistake, Ronaldo is not a man born for the big occasion, he IS the big occasion. Spain might have had their flurry of superstars, but Portugal only had him to look up to. Their gamechanger, their talisman. On a day when you escape being imprisoned, you would normally keep a low profile and thank the Gods. But this is Cristiano Ronaldo we're talking about. As he stepped onto the field on Friday evening, he looked as unfazed as ever. He was up against his club team mates and close friends, who would seemingly know all the tricks he had up his sleeve. Just as the game had started and some of us were still grabbing our seats, Ronaldo, did his trademark stepover on Nacho, his Real Madrid team mate, and earned himself a penalty. And then there was only ever going to be one outcome. In just the 4th minute, he scored a penalty in Portugal's first match at Russia 2018. And he celebrates by rubbing his imaginary “GOATee” on his chin. Audacious, cheeky, brilliant. Source: Reuters However, as the game went on, Ronaldo cut a frustrated, lonesome figure up front as Spain had begun to impose themselves on the game. But, right at the stroke of half time, against the run of play, Ronaldo tried a hopeful shot against, arguably, the best goalkeeper in the world and it somehow results in a goal. Ronaldo, the ultimate poacher, quite simply, had the footballing Gods shining on him. Despite all his brilliance, Spain, after half-time, exerted themselves in a manner they're best known for. Goals from Diego Costa and Nacho meant Portugal were now trailing. With the way things had been going, there was only one man who could've changed the course of the game. And cometh the moment, cometh the man. As Portugal were given a free kick late in the game, we witnessed an all too familiar routine. The rolled up shorts, legs spread wide open on the ground, the deep breaths and a laser eye focussed at the goal. We all knew what he was going to do, and he did just that. A free kick rifled into the top corner with the Spanish goalkeeper not even attempting to stop it. A classic World Cup encounter culminated in Cristiano Ronaldo's moment of magic. What a player! What a man! Source: Reuters The World Cup has only just begun and Cristiano Ronaldo has already given us moments we will relive long after it is over. While the other half of football supporters and pundits continue to root for Messi as the G.O.A.T, he has a tough job on his hands if he is to catch his eternal rival. With 3 goals and powerful performance already in the bag, Ronaldo may well land either of the Golden Boot/Golden Ball and legitimately stake claim to the crown for the G.O.A.T.
  4. There's a new dating trend out and about and it's proven to be mildly fatal for men who don't have beards. And also for men who do. Yeah, you read that right. There's a new trend called 'shaveducking' and it's catching on like the plague and it definitely involves your facial hair. How you ask? Well. shaveducking is when a woman just might be hot for you depending on your facial hair, and not on anything else. So, basically, she's not really attracted to you, as much as she might be to your facial hair and would like you just on the basis of that. So, if you look like KRK without facial hair and like Shahid Kapoor with a beard, then you know what to do. But, listen up guys, I am with you on this and I feel that if I was being picked up by a woman on the basis of just my beard, it would be an absolute shame and quite shallow of them TBH. © Pexels So, to avoid shaveducking becoming a thing, let's just recognise these shaveduckers and say no to them, when they just want to feel up your beard. Let's choose the ladies who actually want to find out what lies underneath that beard. Here are some signs to recognise if she's on her way to shaveducking you! She Swipes On Tinder Because Of Your Facial Hair Yeah, try and find out what made her swipe, if you have the slightest hint of her shaveducking you will know in an instant if the first thing she mentions is your 'beard'. Ask Her About Clean Shaven Guys Ask her what her stance is on guys who are clean shaven. If she cringes at their mere existence, you know why you're in her life! Are There Any Conditions? If she's laid down some conditions for you and one of them is to never shave you beard, then you're being shaveducked by her royally. I mean, what kind of a condition is that in the first place? She Doesn't Take Too Well To Your Shaved Look If you've shaved while you're around her and she detests your look after, why're you even with her? Seriously, she's just with you because of your beard, bro. She'll Keep Praising Your Beard If she constantly praises your beard, you know she's signalling you to never shave it. It's her way of making sure you don't shave it because she loves it so. Just shave whenever you feel like shaving . Long unkempt beards are a breeding ground for flies. I hope you know? Well, if you notice these 5 prominent signs in someone you're remotely interested in, hanging out with or have just met through Tinder or otherwise, you know what the girls in for. It's your beard! If you have one and she's not gonna be with you or be there in the longer run, if then what's the point of shallow dating right? Remember, hair today, gone tomorrow just like she's here today and gone tomorrow.
  5. You know what's not fair? The assumption that your style game invariably goes out the window once you become a dad. Yes, having a child changes your life in ways you perhaps never thought about, but you still can rock it! We are just glad that people like Shahid Kapoor are slowly but steadily changing this perception, every time they step out in public. His latest appearance in a dope outfit is a testament to that. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Shahid has gone for a monochrome look, and is rocking the bejesus out of it. The contrast of the super stylish, comfortable linen grey shirt with that of the edgy silver grey drop-crotch pants is doing wonders for the whole 'stylish despite not trying at all' vibe. © Viral Bhayani The badass element in this otherwise seemingly demure aesthetic is his sneakers. Those black high tops are in a league of their own, not just because of their construction, but also because of the fact that they have their laces on the back-side. Yes, you read that right. Have a closer look. © Viral Bhayani This best thing about this look is that it's self-sufficient, and doesn't warrant the use of excessive accessories. Shahid clearly knows that, and chose to keep it simple with a statement watch and a pair of dark sunnies. © Viral Bhayani A message to dads all over: If you think that you're past your prime and can no longer steal everyone else's thunder in the vicinity just because you have a child now, just look at this man right here. Kudos, Shahid!

  7. From playing gully-cricket to EA sports '07, we screwed up somewhere. The kind of f*ck up which can't be easily reversed. There are numerous ways in which digital world has helped us but it has also made us dull-witted and superficial. We have become the generation who survives on likes and shares. Here are some of the peculiar fads which the youth are following: The 'Intellectual' Selfie Check out your timeline, people. You'll see many intellectual quotes like “It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.” And what are they associated with? A selfie! A selfie with pouted lips or half a face! We have just one question. WHY? It's one thing to post a relatable quote with a beautiful landscape that you clicked but posting some deep (copied) thought with your portrait is, sorry to say, stupid. It's hard to know if this trend came first or the word 'lame.' Best Hubby (Ever) Hashtag Not being a male chauvinist but the fairer *** is the guilty one here. Maybe he's your knight in the shining armor, a great guy, as good as a man can be, but ladies, best is a comparative degree and you simply can't claim that he's the #BestHubby. (Actually, you can. But in order to do that you would have to try every other man, then the hashtag is all yours). Similar is the case with #BestHubbyEver. Ever in the hashtag means you've tried something similar before but this one is the best among all. If it's not your first marriage, then you're good to go. Otherwise, just tell him how great he is in person and not with such senseless hashtags. Wishing Parents/Loved Ones on Social Media Again, why? Find your phone, dial the number, say “Happy Birthday Mom. God has already blessed you with a child like me so, I'm not sure what can I wish for. Still, May God give you what you want,” and stop right there! There's no need to open Facebook, post a vintage picture and tell the world how much your mom means to you. There's no point in showing off your 'love' to your digital friends. It's quite a personal thing, don't you think? Likes For Likes Hashtag People, it's just…desperate! It's one thing if you're making a living out of Instagram by being some kind of blogger or a marketer but posting it for sheer attention is not normal. Such behavior is desolate if you ask us. It's fine to share your pictures on social media but thriving this much for likes, comments and shares is ill-flavored. For your own stature, please stop! If you found yourself guilty of any of the things that we mentioned, there's still time. Use social media for entertainment, not to boost your superficial egos. You don't need the world's validation, be happy from inside.
  8. From Louis van Gaal making a goalkeeping substitution against Costa Rica in 2014 to Sven Goran Eriksson selecting a 16-year-old in the English squad in 2006, coaches have often had far more impact at the FIFA World Cup than they are credited for. Here's a look at the top coaches whose tactical genius is likely to impress us all in Russia: Didier Deschamps (France) © Reuters France are no strangers to imploding during the World Cup. However, under Deschamps, France have assembled a phenomenal side with quality all around over pitch. He led the French team to the European final in 2016. If they are to go one better this time, Deschamps will have to carefully manage the egos in the dressing room and choose a solid starting XI he can consistently rely on. Tite (Brazil) © Reuters “ChiChi”, since his appointment in 2016, has helped restore the country's pride in the national team, after THAT match against Germany. Under his leadership, Brazil became the first nation to qualify for Russia 2018. Known for his emotional style of coaching, will he be able to inspire the Samba boys and help them lift the trophy? Joachim Low (Germany) © Reuters All eyes will be on Germany as they look to defend their crown. However, unlike the last World Cup, Germany are not the only over riding favourites to win the gong. Low has made some controversial selection calls (ask Leroy Sane), but still has a world class team. Can he become only the second manager to win two World Cups? Hector Cuper (Egypt) © Reuters A footballing journeyman, he led the phenomenal Valencia team of the early 2000's to two Champions League finals. He now leads a team spearheaded by football's newest star, Mo Salah. He will have to give some compelling team talks and ask the rest of the team to rally behind Salah in Egypt's quest for glory. Herve Renard (Morocco) © Reuters Having been relegated with Cambridge United in 2004, Renard has since win two AFCON's with Zambia and Ivory Coast. He's known for his eccentric coaching methods and has led the Moroccan team to their first WC in 20 years. If there is an upset in this World Cup, you can place your bets on Renard's Morocco. Fernando Santos (Portugal) © Reuters His Portugal side caused a major upset by beating France in Euro 2016 final. He's been credited with building a steady defensive unit and letting Cristiano Ronaldo doing his thing at the front. It'll be really interesting to see if he can replicate that unlikely success at the world's biggest stage. Gareth Southgate (England) © Reuters He faces the least amount of pressure an England manager ever could. Under lowered expectations, he made bold selection calls, choosing to leave out Jack Wilshere and Joe Hart. With his squad being one the youngest in Russia, he has a golden opportunity to make a serious impact at this World Cup and help his young squad gain some valuable experience for future tournaments.

  10. VHP members have gone totally rogue in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh after they damaged and vandalised the west gate of the Taj Mahal, alleging that it blocks the way to a 400-year old Shiva temple. Earlier this year, a team of VHP members had also tried to perform a 'Shiv aarti ceremony' inside the premises of the Taj Mahal in Agra. The police present on the spot tried to calm down the instigators and asking them to use the optional path to the Siddheshwar Mahadev Temple on the Basia Ghat but to no avail. ASI later lodged an FIR against five members of the VHP and 25 others who accompanied them. © Twitter “On Sunday around 25-30 activists from the VHP came near the western gate of the Taj Mahal and started vandalizing the newly installed turnstile gate for ticket collection for Taj Mahal and Saheli ka Burj. The protesters had hammers and iron rods with them. They removed the gate and threw it some around 50 metres from there. Soon the Taj safety police team reached there and stopped them from vandalising more property,” Taj Safety circle officer (CO) Prabhat Kumar said. VHP's Ravi Dubey tried to justify the actions of his organisation by blaming the administration of destroying the Hindu culture in and around the UNESCO world heritage site. “Till around 15 years ago, there used to be satsang at the Saheli ka Burj on the western gate but it was stopped. Dussehra fair was also stopped near Taj Mahal. Earlier people used to celebrate Amla Nawami here inside the Taj Mahal premises near an Amla tree. That tree was also cut down by the ASI. There were so many other things people used to do here, but it all ended around 14-15 years ago during the Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party rule. We cannot let this happen,” Dubey told the Indian Express. © Twitter While it's shocking that the rogue elements of VHP could get unabated access to cause damage to the monument, the administration's role must also be probed so that such incidents do not occur again in future.
  11. PM Modi, after nominating a plethora of Indian celebrities to come and join the 'fit India movement', has finally taken the challenge himself. Modi released the video on twitter this morning. Here are moments from my morning exercises. Apart from Yoga, I walk on a track inspired by the Panchtatvas or 5 elements of nature - Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu, Aakash. This is extremely refreshing and rejuvenating. I also practice breathing exercises. #HumFitTohIndiaFit pic.twitter.com/km3345GuV2 — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) June 13, 2018 In the video, PM Modi is seen doing a mix of multiple exercises, mostly walking and inspired by five elements of nature – Earth, water, fire, air and sky. A lot of people had criticised PM Modi for not taking up the fitness challenge even though he had nominated a lot of Indian celebrities including Virat Kohli for the same. Even though he has now finally taken up the challenge, twitter wasn't too impressed. This is how our first Prime Minister Nehru ji performed yoga. This should be #FitnessChallenge pic.twitter.com/qZMGovpybY — Simmi Ahuja #WeBelieveInST (@SimmiAhuja_) June 13, 2018 Modi failed in GST implementation Modi failed in job creation.

  12. There have only been a handful of occasions when we got to see all our favourite stars ascend the red carpet and come together to rejoice and celebrate. The last time so many celebs came under the same roof was when Sonam Kapoor got married. In the holy month of Ramadan, politician Baba Siddique continued with his tradition of hosting an Iftaar party and all our favourite celebrities came together to share a meal.

  13. The Bihar Board examinations seem to be as magical as the ones conducted at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. After the results were announced on Saturday morning, many students ended up in a flummoxed state of confusion over their marks. Turns out, that some students managed to score 38 in a paper that was only for 35 marks! No kidding! Also, some students have been marked in papers that they did not even sit for! If this is not magic, what is? © Twitter (representational image) According to a report in TOI, some students have complained regarding this absurd marking scheme. Bhim Kumar got 38 out of the total 35 marks in Mathematics (theory) while 37 out of 35 in the objective-type questions. “I am not shocked because such things have been happening in the state board exams for long,” he said. Another student Sandeep Raj scored 38 out of 35 in the theory paper of physics. “How is it possible? I got zero in the objective-type questions in English and Rashtra Bhasha,” he said. Rahul Kumar from Darbhanga scored 40 out of 35 in the objective paper of maths. Another student complained that she received marks in Biology even though she didn't appear for the exam. © Twitter (representational image) This is not the first time that the Bihar Board examinations have come under the radar for their weird marking scheme. Two years ago, Board topper Ruby Rai came into the limelight after topping the Board without having adequate knowledge of the subjects. A fact that was brought to light in a very dramatic manner. It seems as if the educators at the Bihar Board are very generous and are not holding back in making the students happy, by doling out marks so liberally! But all jokes aside, this seems to have become a trend of sorts in Bihar and students are clearly suffering the consequences. The state government needs to look into the matter with immediate effect, in order to get to the root of the crisis.
  14. Do you remember that feeling you had, in your childhood, when your friend had the Big Truck and you did not? Or when someone got the highest marks and they got praised by the teachers? Cut to a few years later, your friend got into a relationship and you were still single? Or that friend from work who seems to be getting all the accolades while no one admires your efforts? Yes, jealousy! It rears its head, when you are most unaware; that twinge of jealousy can have serious implications on your relationships. That little speck of worthlessness that comes with jealousy can lead to much bigger problems if not checked in time. Jealousy is a natural emotion. The human brain is wired in such a way that when it doesn't find the validation it needs, it pushes one to feel animosity for the person who seems to be getting better things than them or something which they thought they deserved. It is normal to be jealous, in fact, it drives you to better yourself. But, if you begin seeking revenge because of jealousy or trying to demean others for it, it becomes an entity which one must do away with immediately. Jealousy Thy Name Is Love? Why do we feel jealous? Jealousy stems from our own insecurity. When we give in to the insecurities and forget our self-worth, we start feeling jealous of other people. It's a manifestation of one's ego. Jealousy in love is common and much discussed in history. Where does it come from? It comes from protectiveness; when you feel threatened by another person who you think will ruin your happiness. But this does not mean you start firing up at the slightest provocation. It only makes matters worse. Shakespeare's Othello is a perfect example of this. Iago's provocation makes Othello go blind in his pathological jealousy which results in Desdemona's death. Without any proof, he keeps on doubting her, aided by Iago's words, eventually killing her. Does being jealous prove anything here? Except the loss of one's loved one; even though it is not their mistake. Love is not blind, jealousy is. And it makes you blind too. Both are different things. You cannot prove your love by being jealous and similarly, you can't be in love with jealousy. Augustine says, “He that is not jealous is not in love.” I beg to differ. Envy can't help you be in love; it eventually will ruin your happiness. Love is not about you, it's about the other person. But one does think can jealousy be healthy for love? I guess, it can be, to some extent. If your jealousy makes you love your partner more intensely or it fuels your passions, in a good way, I guess jealousy can be a catalyst in strengthening your relationship. Also, if feeling jealous of your partner does not make you take the wrong path. There is a very thin line between feeling love with jealousy and being consumed with jealousy. It has been portrayed in many movies that if you want a person to notice you, make them feel jealous. Countless movies, series and books have perpetuated the idea of making your crush jealous so that they may fall in love with you. Though it sounds good on paper, it hardly is the case in real life. You may instead of making the person fall for you, ruin anything you could possibly have. I'm So Jealous Of You! We all feel jealous countless times, with friends, siblings, family, et al. Why does that guy look better than me? Why does he have girlfriends when I can't? Why does he/she have a better job? Why don't I have a good physique like the other person? Why did they score more in that test? Why do people like them more? We need to look beyond this. It is hard, no doubt, but berating yourself and constantly comparing yourself to others doesn't serve a purpose. If the comparison works in you trying to do better, something to work towards your goals, it is beneficial. Sometimes, the lack of communication in a friendship leads to feelings of envy. Other people will try to take advantage of your jealousy to fulfill their own goals by creating a wedge between you two. If you feel threatened by the new girlfriend of your best friend, talk to them. Tell them how you feel. Or if they got a promotion, which you felt was due to you, communicate that you feel happy for them, but you do feel jealous. Honesty will increase the strength of your bond. If they laugh it off and forgive you, it shows that they truly are worthy of your friendship. On the other hand, if this is not the case, you are intelligent enough to know what to do. Sabotaging others' happiness won't make you achieve your goals. Wearing masks is second nature to us. Don't put a mask on your emotions; if you truly care about someone, you need to tell them what you feel. Keeping feelings to yourself starts corroding you as a person. Jealousy limits your ability to feel happy, not just for others but for yourself. It is like a gnawing wound, until it starts to bleed. Be open about dealing with it. However deep a friendship might be, however one may try to curb the feeling of jealousy, if once it has taken root, it only grows. Genuine happiness is very different from being completely happy. You might be happy for someone, but you may also feel jealous of them. It's nothing bad. Don't let it get the better of you. Instead of spreading rumors, back-biting or feeling bad about you, try to talk to the person. Wallowing in self-pity harms only you and makes you a pale copy of yourself. I Pity Me! The legendary Meena Kumari could cry on cue. The reason was that she was in such a state of self-pity that the tears would roll down without the help of glycerin. This shows the level of how much a person can drop down when they lose their self-esteem because of insecurities which in turn develop jealousy to an astronomical level. She, at the least, had her craft as an outlet which we don't. Being jealous is like having all the happiness in the world but still being unhappy. It's like getting a Happy Meal and finding a small toy; and that just because your toy is smaller it isn't good. We demean the worth of ourselves in our own eyes, when there is nothing to be sad about. Being ambitious is not the same as being jealous. People forget to see the difference being ambition and envy. An ambitious person strives to achieve something for themselves, a jealous person on the other hand, because someone else has it. Try to look at the bigger picture. You'll be surprised to know that the person you feel jealous of might be jealous of you. It's a vicious cycle. It affects you more than what happens to the other person, the ultimate victim is your peace of mind. Dealing with Jealousy Jealousy can be a constructive factor in your life. If you feel envious of that other person, who seems to be better off, see what they are doing different. Being blinded with envy will not help you as it will only hinder your own progress. Jealousy can crop up between the best of friends. Even a single spark is enough to ignite passions which lead to the breaking of lifelong bonds. If you feel jealous, check yourself. Look for the triggers. Talk about it with a close friend. It doesn't have to eat you up. The worst thing which we can do to ourselves is keep things to ourselves. It doesn't make you stronger. On the contrary, it leads to you becoming hollow. We all believe that the next person has a better life than us. What we fail to see is that they are also thinking the same thing. The grass is always greener on the other side; however hard we try, there might be another person doing better than us, and they might think that you are better than them. This incessant and infinite loop of comparison keeps on going throughout our lives, forever not realizing that we ourselves are enough, if we are giving it all that we can give. In Buddhism, there is a word for unselfish joy; the joy we feel for others' happiness: Mudita. Unfortunately, not everyone has it. The best thing to do is to try to find joy for others. Being envious is just one of the many flaws of being a human. What we fail to understand is that jealousy is like a boomerang; if you wish bad for someone, it will come back and get you instead.
  15. Celebrity Chef, connoisseur of cuisines, and someone who loved India and her food wholeheartedly, perhaps much more than her own inhabitants, Anthony Bourdain was the embodiment of an 'eclectic palette' - just like a flavoursome Indian Thali - something he admittedly had a special affinity for. The man was a multilayered pool of talent, which made its presence felt beyond the boundaries of the dinner table. He was an avid traveller, gifted storyteller, and most importantly, an open minded ambassador of cultural exchanges. Most of our teenage years were enriched with the virtual flavours and aromas of the food that he would taste. He had the rare gift of making you taste, smell, and rediscover the food that you grew up with, from the perspective of a curious traveller, which perhaps was the reason he was a favourite amongst the free-spirited, imaginative lot. Throughout his series 'No reservations' and 'Parts unknown', he proved time and time again that his connection with India and Indian cuisine ran deeper than the eye beholds. His unfortunate death earlier today is reminding us of all those instances. Here are four of them. 1. When he, an avid non-vegetarian, proclaimed his love for our very own Paranthe and Saag, and other vegetarian delicacies "I've made much fun of vegetarians over the years and have been said, frequently, to “hate” them. This is not true. But I am dismissive and (sometimes) contemptuous of food that is made with a narrow world view as its first priority. This is not the case in India, one of the few places on earth, where eating vegetarian is not a burden. In Punjab, wildly varying textures, huge selections, thrilling blends of spices and assertive, delicious flavours are always accompanied by wonderful, freshly-made breads." (c) Twitter 2. When he schooled Anderson Cooper about Indian food and hygiene In an interview that went viral, celebrity journalist Anderson Cooper expressed his concerns about the hygiene issues related to Indian food, and went on to say that most of his time in India is spent on trying not to fall sick. Bourdain was quick to dismiss that, and proclaimed like a proud desi foodie: "Indian food won't kill you." He went on to say that Cooper should rather refrain from having the seemingly safe Spaghetti Bolognese from the fancy hotel buffet that he trusts blindly. Proud! (c) Twitter 3. When he said he'd rather stay out of the way of a good chef, and braved maniacal tantrums of children, only to savour an amazing meal that was being cooked How desi is that? We can relate to it with every fiber of our being. In an episode of 'No reservations', we saw him waiting impatiently for the delicious food being cooked inside, in the company of naughty children inflicting mayhem all over the room. Every birthday party invitation ever, we say. (c) Twitter 4. When he cribbed about no food being good enough as the real deal here in India Anthony admittedly got spoilt with all the amazing authentic Indian food he got to taste here. He went on to say on record that no restaurant did it well enough. "Back home, we are really weak on street food, at least in Manhattan. Queens is another matter, there's a lot of good street food there. New York does deli well, so I can safely recommend Pastrami Queen, Katz's Deli, or Barney Greengrass. But I can't recommend any Indian restaurant in New York. I've been spoiled.” We feel that. (c) Twitter RIP, Sir. You will be missed.
  16. Every now and then, a movie comes out that stays with us long after the credits have rolled. But sometimes while watching such a movie, we are smitten by the props used by a character in it. Like Luke Skywalker's lightsaber or Captain America's shield or even the Zippo lighter used by George Clooney in 'Ocean's Thirteen' to trigger the dice that help him take the Casino down. You know what I am talking about, right? Props can be such an essential part of the narrative, as they convey so much more than just the time and place indicated in the story. They can be an indispensable part of a character in a movie, like Thor's Mjolnir. In this video, Walk of Flame by IMDb, property master and Head of Props for Marvel, Russel Bobbit talks about some of the most iconic props used in some of the most loved movies. Did you know the story behind the Zippo lighter used by Bruce Willis in 1980's action movie 'Die Hard' or the one used by Drew Barrymore in 'Charlie's Angels'? After watching this video, one thing's for sure – my Zippo lighter collection will grow tenfold!

  18. When will all the famous people stop getting married, though? I swear there is someone getting married every few weeks this year. 2018 truly is the year of weddings, actually celebrity weddings. We've seen Sonam Kapoor's big fat Punjabi wedding and Neha Dhupia secretly getting married and surprising all her fans. Now, towards the end of the year, apparently Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are also going to tie the knot. But, before that we also have like two Ambani weddings to witness and you know it will be grand, because Ambanis, of course. © Instagram We thought Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta got engaged a couple of months ago, but no that was probably just Akash proposing to Shloka and this month they will have a proper engagement party. Both families are so rich, obviously they'll have so many functions, because other 'rishtedaar kya kahenge'. © Instagram Save the dates have been sent out for the engagement party that will be held on the 30th of this month. While we're not lucky enough to receive an invitation to such an exclusive event, at least the lavish invite is everywhere on the internet for us to see. Here's the save the date invite: © Instagram And, it's accompanied by a video. At my house, people were invited by a phone call for the engagement party and Ambanis made a freaking video for it. Wow. Video Clip of #AkashAmbani & #ShlokaMehta's Engagement. Akash & Shloka's formal engagement at their Mumbai residence on June 30. More information on www.ndtv.com #Weddings #Invite A post shared by Rohit Khilnani (@rohitkhilnani) on Jun 5, 2018 at 12:34am PDT As if this wasn't enough, there will be an even more formal invitation after this.
  19. There is no smoke without fire and in case of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, we can see the whole city burning right under our noses. The two are inseparable and we aren't just saying it for viewership. It's not just Hollywood but even Bollywood envy this new 'power' couple. And why not? After all, these two define what's called 'best of both worlds'. Earlier this week, the two were spotted in various places together. A week ago, they were attending the Beauty and the Beast Live in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The next day we saw them enjoying a Los Angeles Dodgers baseball game. The videos of the two together walking to their seats had literally set the Internet on fire. @priyankachopra and @nickjonas at the #Dodgers game today. ð pic.twitter.com/3J91P9phzq — PC Style File (@fashionistapc) May 27, 2018 Talking about their chemistry one person at the game revealed to a magazine, “They were both very happy and smiley and seemed to really be enjoying each other's company. They didn't show any PDA, just talking and laughing a lot.” Later, they were even holidaying on a yacht with friends Wilmer Valderrama and Chord Overstreet where we got to see Priyanka getting cosy with Nick. Don't they look adorable? Nick Jonas with Priyanka Chopra, Glen Powell, Wilmer Valderrama, Chord Overstreet, Greg Garbowsky, and friends in Los Angeles, CA - May 28th pic.twitter.com/nTKy716Oxc — Nick Jonas News (@JickNonasNews) May 29, 2018 Teasing us some more, the two now went on a date making things almost public for a dinner date at Toca Medera in LA. The two looked significant together and it wouldn't be wrong to say this is actually happening guys! Well, many of us are wondering what exactly happened on the date and let us tell you that it was all about food, music, chivalry, and PDA. And we know when Priyanka does it, she is actually into it! (c) Nick Jonas Photos "They were very affectionate with each other and seemed to not care who saw. Priyanka ran her hands through his hair at one point and they were laughing and even dancing to the music," a source told another magazine. (c) Nick Jonas Photos The duo was totally into each other and went to enjoy music together and share guacamole, ceviche, and tacos for dinner. (c) Nick Jonas Photos For those who don't know, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas made their appearance together the first time when they walked Met Gala red carpet in 2017. (c) Twitter In fact, Jimmy Kimmel had also asked PeeCee about her Met Gala date with Nick to which she said, "We were both wearing Ralph Lauren and so we decided to go together. It was fun. I didn't ask his age. What is it? 11?" Well...Priyanka is fun for sure! We can't wait for the two to make things official.

  22. Thanks to Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, our favourite celebrities are heading towards a fitter and healthier lifestyle. We still can't take any guarantee of those who are slouching on their couch with a bowl of potato chips in their hands. Ever since the likes of Virat Kohli, Anushka Sharma, Hrithik Roshan, Saina Nehwal and Deepika Padukone took the fitness challenge, the list has only blown. And the recent addition in this list is Deepika Padukone's boyfriend Ranveer Singh. Twitter Ranveer Singh just took up the fitness challenge and now everyone else can go home because that's literally the best video we've seen so far. Given how quirky he is, we weren't expecting anything less than this and honestly, no one can endorse the fitness challenge better than him. If his craziness wasn't enough, Sidharth Malhotra and Aditya Roy Kapoor join him too and the hilarity only multiplies from there on. The video starts with Aditya and Sidharth checking someone out at the gym. The person actually turns out to be Ranveer Singh who floors us all with his TVC style "bicep curls for girls" statement to request people to work-out. Fitness dwara aap hot & sexy bhi ban sakte hain!(meri tarah)ððªð¾Kudos to most handsome & dashing leader @Ra_THORe for brilliant initiative! #FitnessChallenge #HumFitTohIndiaFit ð®ð³ððð½ I tag my sexy gym bros @S1dharthM and #AdityaRoyKapur & Fittest Director #RohitShetty pic.twitter.com/lwtVeuW0j8 — Ranveer Singh (@RanveerOfficial) 30 May 2018
  23. India is currently in the midst of a fuel crisis but both the government and the opposition seem to have abandoned the general public. With prices of petrol touching Rs 86.24 per litre in Mumbai and Rs 78.43 per litre in Delhi, the situation is worsening by the day and with no respite in sight, the Prime Minister has already left for a trip to Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. © BCCL While Modi is on an official strategic visit, leaving the country without even acknowledging the punishing fuel prices is despicable to say the least. A good government is always for the people, looking to elevate the discomfort in their day to day lives and yet there seems to a massive disconnect between what the people of the country desire right now and how the government is acting out in respect to rising fuel prices. The opposition seems to be disintegrated at the moment too, with the Congress party president, Rahul Gandhi currently on a foreign trip with his mother due to medical conditions. A headless opposition, therefore, hasn't been able to respond formidably to the government's ineptitude in dealing with the rising fuel prices. © carhelpline The price of petrol is at an all time high currently. Over the past 15 years, there hasn't been a single occasion when the public has had to pay these prices for a just a litre of fuel. It is also a failure of the Modi government which promised people cheaper fuel if it came to power in 2014. While the general public has to take the hit of these high fuel prices, both the government and the opposition have really let down the people of the country who bank on them for grievance redressal.
  24. It's a Sunday evening and while most of us are busy resting our lazy asses on the couch, trying to balance that bowl of chips on our beer belly, our celebrities are taking social media by storm with their crazy fitness videos. 'Hum Fit Toh India Fit'! It's not an advertisement for green tea. Neither is it a tagline we came up with. If you have been following celebrities and our stories closely, you will know that this is a new fitness challenge that is spreading like wildfire on the internet. Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore started this challenge a few days ago, where he tagged and challenged Hrithik Roshan, Virat Kohli and Saina Nehwal to post their fitness videos. Twitter Since then, this has turned into a chain of people being tagged, followed by some unbelievable and amazing fitness videos of our celebrities. We have already seen the likes of Virat Kohli, Tiger Shroff, Deepika Padukone, Hrithik Roshan, Anushka Sharma and PM Modi accepting the challenge. Now, Chairman of Mahindra Group, Anand Mahindra too has jumped into this bandwagon and let's just say that the video he posted, is the only source of inspiration we need to make some healthy changes in our lifestyle. He was tagged by ace tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi. Twitter Even at the age of 63, the billionaire makes a leg press workout look like a child's play. In fact, in the video he even shared the various exercises he does to keep himself fit and healthy and here we are scrolling through these videos, while binging on some leftover cakes or pastries. #HumFitTohIndiaFit ð®ð³ð@Ra_THORe & @Maheshbhupathi I accept your #FitnessChallenge Here's my video and I challenge my colleagues @C_P_Gurnani @VsparthaS & @RuzbehIrani1 pic.twitter.com/RMBiC6soBB — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) May 27, 2018 After watching this video, we are convinced that whoever said “Age is just a number” probably returned after meeting Anand Mahindra. Maybe, the person thought that if he can perform tough exercises at 65, then anyone half his age or younger doesn't need any excuses to not try.
  25. Two or more people sharing the same first name, isn't something new. In fact, having 5 students with the same name in the same class was often a difficult task for teachers to deal with. I am sure we all have a Pooja, Neha or Aarti in our lives, because these names are so common. But, what are the odds that they all share the same surname? And what are the chances that one of them is a global megastar? Not many, right? Well, I would have thought so too had I not come across Ryan Reynolds. Confused? Well, I am not talking about him… © Instagram Or Deadpool… © Marvel Entertainment In fact, this is also not about Blake Lively's husband, who loves to troll his wife on social media. © Instagram I am talking about Ryan Reynolds from Australia, who went viral on social media, after he enquired about Marvel Stadium. Seriously, 'Deadpool 2' actor talking about Marvel Stadium, what can possibly be so interesting that people are going crazy over it? Well, this Ryan Reynolds is actually a sports journalist and the stadium in question has nothing to do with MCU or superheroes. Neither does this Ryan Reynolds has anything in common (except the name), with the more famous Ryan. And sense of humour probably. In fact, given the blue tick on the Twitter accounts of both the Ryans, I won't be surprised if any of us ended up following the wrong Ryan in haste. © Twitter Back story: Melbourne's Etihad Stadium will soon go by a new name – Marvel Stadium, after Disney struck an eight-year deal with them. Before 2009, Etihad Stadium was known as The Docklands Stadium, Colonial Stadium and Telstra Dome. Taking a cue from this excellent 'Deadpool=Marvel' and 'Ryan Reynolds=Ryan Reynolds' opportunity; the sports reporter who works with Geelong Advertiser posted this. Do I get free entry into Marvel Stadium? #Deadpool2 — Ryan Reynolds (@Reynolds_R) May 23, 2018 In fact, Ryan even tweeted to the 'Deadpool 2' actor, asking him out for a coffee next time he's in Australia. Any chance of catching up for a coffee next time you're in Oz @VancityReynolds ? My shout. https://t.co/bd3c6YTjjP — Ryan Reynolds (@Reynolds_R) May 24, 2018 Well, thanks to his cheeky tweet we finally know that there's someone apart from Ryan, who will now probably be the target of all the Deadpool and Ryan Reynolds jokes. Good luck covering the Australian Football League (AFL), Ryan. We wonder how Ryan Reynolds will react once he comes across the lesser known Ryan. Source: Geelong Advertiser
