  1. The freezing winter winds have begun to taper off, and we are gradually pootling towards the dog days! The summer season gives you the opportunity to boast off the fashionista that resides inside you and naturally demands a trendy wardrobe upgrade. Whether you are someone who likes to be in style at all times or someone who buys clothes just for the sake of keeping oneself sheathed, there's one thing that you'd all agree to - summers call for fine quality cotton clothes! Cotton is the go-to summer fabric and makes for a godsend during those blazing hot days when your skin is longing for air and comfort. However, most men don't always pay heed to the fact that cotton too has plenty of variants, a popular one being organic cotton. The environment is chock-a-block with a myriad of resources which are there to sustain us. But, in order to get easy and faster solutions, we humans often end up over-utilizing these resources, more often than not causing unnecessary harm which in turn could lead to their depletion. So to combat this, the environmentalists have come up with various methods, one such being organic farming. Organic production benefits the environment (and us!) for it renews the soil, and helps maintain its fertility. At the same time, it limits the use of toxic chemical fertilizers or pesticides which are known to have an adverse impact on soil, air, water, and human health. So, as you decide to shop for clothes this summer season, there's one thing that you must keep in mind, and swear by - laying out your bucks on garms which are crafted out of 100% organic cotton. And as such, if you are all set to make a shift to organic cotton clothing, or wish to learn about this variant of cotton, here is an all-inclusive guide for you: What Is Organic Cotton? © Unsplash It does not happen as often that one pays heed to the environment and its health while laying out money on clothes. But while fashion and clothes would come and go, Mother Nature should sustain (well, we hope at least!). As such, it becomes important that we start giving it the attention that it deserves, and do our bit in preserving it. The fact that a large population of farmers around the globe employ synthetic methods and products to speed up the cultivation process, and to ensure that the crop comes out good, is something which is not as scandalizing as it used to be. Organic cotton is a result of that. It is a type of cotton which is cultivated without the use of any chemical fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides, or pesticides, and its production involves no other artificial inputs. The fact that organic cotton is kept sheathed from any exposure to toxic chemicals is what ensures its purity, which in itself makes it healthy, as well as environment-friendly. What Are The Benefits Of Organic Cotton? © Unsplash When we talk about the diverse variants of cotton, the most common distinguishing factors remain confined to the quality of fabric, and how comfortable it feels on the skin. However, when it comes to organic cotton, there are more factors attached, the major ones being the environment-friendly properties that it is packed with. There are a number of reasons why you should invest in garments crafted out of organic cotton, some of which are as follows- 1. It is the most environment-friendly fabric: As the farmers do not make use of any artificial inputs in the production of organic cotton, this variant safeguards the soil from any sort of chemical abuse and helps itl retain its fertility. 2. It is smooth and lightweight: Be it organic cotton t shirts, briefs or anything else, articles which are crafted out of this type of cotton feel exceptionally light as well as smooth on the skin. This is owed to the fact that the organic treatment of this type of cotton ensures that it retains its natural wax which contributes to its smoothness. 3. It ensures better colour and sweat absorption: Organic cotton is packed with natural wicking properties, which in turn helps in better dye absorption during the later stages of textile production. Also, the products which are crafted out of this type of cotton are better at absorbing sweat. 4. It prevents possible skin allergies: Since no chemicals are used in its production, organically farmed cotton automatically reduces the chances of any chemical-induced allergies on the skin. 5. It is safe to work with: The farmers who work in cotton fields are vulnerable to the ill-effects of the chemical substance' which in turn can affect their well-being. Since organic cotton cultivation makes no use of such potentially toxic chemicals, the workers, as well as their families, stay out of harm's way! How Is Organic Cotton Better Than Regular Cotton? © Pexels What comes to your mind when someone says COTTON? A white ball of fluff! Isn't it? Most of us don't pay much heed to the variety that exists in cotton, which is sundry, and our idea of it is often confined to a basic definition. Most cotton garments that we invest in are made out of regular cotton, which is usually available at relatively pocket--friendly rates. However, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that there are a few differences between organic cotton and regular cotton, which are not only bound to its texture and feel, but also to ways in which they affect the environment. When it comes to quality, organic cotton is a lot more smoother as compared to regular cotton, and feels lighter on the body. The clothes which are made out of organic cotton are airy, which ensures that your skin is able to breathe sufficiently at all times, making them a perfect investment for the blazing hot summer days. Bearing in mind its impacts on the environment, there is no dearth of reasons which prove that organic cotton is a lot more eco-friendly than regular cotton. To begin with, the use of natural fertilizers ascertains that the soil quality is not compromised upon, and that it retains its nutrients. Organic cotton farming also contributes to water conservation, for 80% of its water usage is relied upon rainwater. Another factor which gives organic cotton an edge over regular cotton is that it is skin-friendly. Regular cotton, on that other hand, is chemically farmed. This may not suit all skin types, and induce allergies for many. Organic cotton producers makes sure that your health is not at stake, and that you remain devoid of any allergic reactions. All things considered, it won't be wrong to assume that organic cotton is indeed better than regular cotton. Is It Expensive? © Pexels While the word is bent towards making a shift to everything organic, the entire “I chose organic” rage is something which is still in its fledgling stage. The brands which deal in organic cotton garments make sure that yours as well as the environment's well-being is not jeopardized in anyway. As such, like everything else organic, this variety of cotton can be a tad bit more expensive than ordinary cotton, but that seems justified if you take into consideration all of its rich properties. Not that it will cost you a fortune, but the garments which are crafted out of this type of cotton can be a little costly when compared to regular cotton. But then again, you can not expect to get something which benefits your health as well the the environment to come with a miniscule price tag. Now you might feel that organic cotton should technically be less expensive than regular cotton for the producers don't have to spend anything on high-priced fertilizers or GMO (Genetically modified organisms) seeds. That is true, but it's also important to understand that the harvesting process for organic cotton costs a lot more, which in turn results in the heftier price tag. What All Can You Get In Organic Cotton? © Pexels A number of brands in the fashion industry have begun to latch on to the importance of conserving the environment, and its resources, and so have begun to make the much-needed shift to organic cotton farming. Today, you would find everything from t shirts, to trousers, briefs, and even socks which feature organic cotton make. And given the awareness surrounding this type of cotton, we can expect to see a significant boom in the coming future when it comes to the variety of organic cotton products that are going to be available. How to Identify Organic Cotton Products? © Unsplash There are a range of sham sellers in the market who are looking for opportunities to fraud customers by selling stuff that they falsely claim is crafted out of organic cotton. Trying to discern the difference between organic cotton and regular cotton can be a task next to impossible, for there isn't much you can do to tell the difference from the naked eye. So, with that being the case, unless you are someone who does not mind splurging out money on whatever looks good to the eye, and do not care as much about the fabric quality, it is requisite that you make sure that what you are investing in is 100% genuine! The most common way of ensuring that the products that you are buying feature a legit organic cotton make is that you shop from brands which are well-known for crafting articles out of pure organic cotton. Also, all the brands dealing in organic cotton always have it clearly mentioned on their product label.
  2. With all eyes on the ICC World Cup in England & Wales, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have pretty much narrowed down the squad for the mega event, slated to begin this May. While the consistent performers will be seen carrying the baton for their side, a lot of other Indian cricketers seem to have missed out. Amongst the ones who missed out, young Shreyas Iyer, too, failed to make the cut. But, the 24-year-old has neither allowed it to affect his mindset, nor his performance on the field. In fact, if we were to go by his recent outing with the willow, Shreyas appears to be making a strong statement which is bound to garner the attention of Indian selectors. Shreyas Iyer was the no. 4 we were looking for but @BCCI didn't give him much chance as compared to Rahane, Manish, Rayudu otherwise he'd in WC squad. — Ovi (@Abhijit_19) February 21, 2019 Unfazed by the snub, Shreyas took the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy by storm after a blistering innings during Mumbai's opening match against Sikkim. The right-hander slammed a whirlwind 55-ball 147 (scoring 118 runs in boundaries). In the process, he surpassed Rishabh Pant to record the highest individual score by an Indian batsman in the history of T20 cricket. Coming in to bat, with Mumbai reeling at 22/2, Shreyas stabilised the innings for his side with a pivotal 213-run partnership for the third wicket with Suryakumar Yadav (63). During his marauding knock, the Mumbai batsman smashed 15 sixes and seven boundaries, including a 35-run over off Sikkim's medium-pacer Tashi Bhalla. Highest T20 scores by Indians 147 - Shreyas Iyer for Mumbai today 128* - Rishabh Pant for Delhi Daredevils 2018 127 - M Vijay for Chennai Super Kings 2010 126* - Suresh Raina for Uttar Pradesh 2018 125 - Unmukt Chand for Delhi 2013#SyedMushtaqAliTrophy — Mohandas Menon (@mohanstatsman) February 21, 2019 Incidentally, Shreyas' tally of 15 sixes also saw going past Murali Vijay (11) for most maximums in a T20 innings among Indian batsmen. He is now tied on the fourth spot on the overall list with none other than 'Universe Boss' Chris Gayle. Thanks to the right-handed batsman's sensational knock, Mumbai reached a formidable total of 258 runs in their quota of 20 overs. In reply, Sikkim failed to get going in their run-chase. Shardul Thakur and Shams Mulani bagged two wickets apiece to ensure Sikkim could only manage 104/7 in 20 overs, losing the match by 154 runs. Highest score by an Indian in T20 history â Most sixes by an Indian in a T20 innings â O Captain, Our Captain!#SyedMushtaqAliTrophy #ShreyasIyer#ThisIsNewDelhi #DelhiCapitals pic.twitter.com/TCbNJ03lZm — Delhi Capitals (@DelhiCapitals) February 21, 2019 Sadly, despite the talent & good performance, Shreyas Iyer lost his place in Indian team. — Lionð®ð³ (@ShoorVeerKing) February 21, 2019 Wow looking forward for such performances in international level, once he gets the chance — anju rawat (@anjubharatrawat) February 21, 2019 Poor Shreyas iyer he has a competition with IPL bully Rayudu who doesn't even play domestic cricket. What a shame — Coach Ravi Shastri (@saffron_archer) February 21, 2019 Wow.. I mean in another country he would've been a established star batsman by now. Instead we have duds like Rayudu to contend till the WC. I hope for wholesome changes in batting order after WC. This team is too damn old — Romeo Rajat (@RomeoRajat2) February 21, 2019 Shreyas iyer is rare talent , he is much better than Rayudu , u r picking Rayudu just for his IPL performance where as iyer is scoring tons of runs in domestic cricket . — Coach Ravi Shastri (@saffron_archer) February 21, 2019
  3. `Last year, Vivo launched the NEX and it was among the first few phones to sport a pop-up camera. The brand was also the first one to bring an in-display fingerprint scanner. Today, Vivo announced its first phone of 2019 in India, the V15 Pro. The V15 Pro brings in all the various trends from 2018, and clubs it into one. Having multiple rear cameras on the rear is the latest trend, and Vivo has decided to join the bandwagon as well. Amazon and Flipkart have been teasing the phone for quite some time now and here's everything you need to know about it. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla It has a glass back with a colour gradient and a notch-less display with smaller bezels. Vivo boasts that it has further cut down the chin, offering a better screen-to-body ratio of 91.6 percent. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla On the front is a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution. It comes with a Snapdragon 675 processor along with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. For authentication, it features an in-display fingerprint scanner, as well as face unlock. A dedicated Smart Button activates Google Assistant and the phone also ships with Vivo's Jovi assistant. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The V15 Pro includes a triple rear camera setup consisting of: a 48-megapixel primary sensor with Quad Pixel technology, 8-megapixel wide-angle lens, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. The Quad Pixel technology can combine four pixels into one large pixel to deliver a high-quality 12-megapixel picture. This comes handy in low-light pictures when details tend to get blurry. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The pop-up module houses a 32-megapixel selfie camera and Vivo is confident it's sturdy enough to withstand daily wear and tear. The hardware is assisted by AI Portrait, AI Beauty, and AI Super Night Mode for even better output. The phone ships with Android 9 Pie based Funtouch OS 9 and is backed by a 3700mAh battery. For fast charging, the phone also supports dual-engine charging. Lastly, Game Mode 5.0 ensures better gaming performance by prioritizing resources and slightly overclocks the CPU to reduce frame-drops. It has been priced at Rs 28,990 for the 6GB+128GB and shall be available via all major retailers as well as online sellers starting Feb 20th.
  4. If one were to make a list of all of the essential fashion staples that Indian men rely on, t-shirts are going to top that list. After all, not only are they super easy to pull off, they are also comfortable to wear, easy to maintain, and also end up providing you with multiple options to layer up your outfits with. Simply put, the utility of a t-shirt in a man's wardrobe simply cannot be stressed enough. But as important as t-shirts are for men, the latter usually aren't aware of all of the variants of the former they ought to be adding to their collection. Most of them are more than satisfied with a pair of solid colours, and while solid tees are important as well (more on that later!), they are not enough, nowhere close. And so to help Indian men upgrade their collection of such an integral fashion staple, here are all of the different types of t-shirts they ought to be investing in. 1. Solid T-Shirts © Amazon Right off the bat, the first type of t-shirts you need to be investing in are solid tees. After all, these are going to act as the staples you will constantly be depending on for your choice of attire. As such, no man's wardrobe can possibly be complete without the best black t shirts or the best white tees out there. But besides the monochromatic blacks and whites, you also need to be investing in other solid colours, including pastel shades (lavender, sky blue, and beige) and powerful hues (navy blue, bottle green, and red). Another major reason why your wardrobe should be stocked up with solid tees? You get multiple options to layer up your outfits and create arresting and fashion-forward ensembles that are certain to grab everyone's attention. 2. Printed T-Shirts © Amazon After you've stocked up your closet with a variety of solid tees, your next priority should be to opt for printed t-shirts. After all, a lot can be achieved by rocking the best printed t-shirts for men out there. Broadly speaking, there are two types of prints that you should ensure you invest in - minimalist and over-the-top. For minimalist prints, micro-ditsy, conversational, and even typography prints make for great choices, especially if you layer them up with a simple pair of trousers or joggers. For over-the-top prints, opting for bold graphic tees, and floral prints is advisable. Pro tip: Going for camouflage prints is always a good idea. 3. Polo T-Shirts © Amazon No man's wardrobe can possibly be complete without a collection of classy polo t-shirts. Considered to be one of the most effortlessly stylish fashion staples men could opt for, polo tees reinforce that golden rule of fashion - 'less is more'. The fact that they also help you look more mature doesn't hurt. In most cases, they also make for a great option for a first date. When looking for the best polo t-shirts for men, you should make sure you opt for reliable brands, go for solid colours (blacks, whites, blues, and reds), and get the right fit. 4. Supima Cotton T-Shirts © The March Tee Sometimes, how durable your t-shirt is going to be, how much comfort it will give, and whether it's going to last long are the primary factors you should be looking for in a t-shirt. Which is why investing in Supima cotton t-shirts ends up being such a great option. Not only will they make for the most comfortable t-shirts in your wardrobe (Supima cotton, after all, is up to FOUR TIMES softer than regular cotton), but they will also be more durable and resistant to wear and tear (Supima cotton is TWICE as strong as regular cotton) than your other tees. And despite being a tad bit more expensive than regular t-shirts, they actually end up providing you with more value for your money. Since they are more durable and long-lasting, investing in Supima cotton t-shirts helps you save money that you'd otherwise be spending on replacing your other regular t-shirts that are almost certain to get worn out in just a few months. 5. Full-Sleeve T-Shirts © Amazon Because t-shirts primarily tend to be a summer fashion staple, most men almost always associate them with short-sleeves. In reality, full-sleeve t-shirts can be just as effective and useful (if not more!) than their half-sleeved counterparts. In fact, full-sleeve t-shirts actually make for a more stylish and fashion-forward ensemble, especially if you team them up with the right clothes and accessories. You can also wear these tees during the warmer months of the year - October and November come to mind - when it's neither too hot, nor too cold. 6. High-Neck T-Shirts © Amazon Make no mistake, some of the best t-shirts for men out there are actually high-neck variants. Exuding class and high-fashion, there is no reason why you shouldn't be stocking up your closet with them. The trick here is to layer them up with the right clothes. In most cases, a high-neck t-shirt should NOT be layered with an additional jacket or pullover, as that ends up defeating the purpose of wearing them in the first place.
  5. Oman Confined to mere 24 against the Mighty Scotland, registering the lowest ever ODI Total © Twitter/@ICC In the world of sports, we witness players and teams achieving new records, shattering the old ones. But sometimes, the same players and teams end up setting unwanted records, owing to disastrous performances. Something similar happened with Oman On Tuesday when they were bowled out for a grand total of mere 24 against Scotland in the first ODI of a three-match bilateral series between the two teams. They thus set the record for the lowest ever ODI total (scroll down for the full list of lowest-ever totals). After losing the toss, Oman were asked to bat first, after which they could just post 24 runs on the board. Out of this two dozen, 15 runs were scored by Khawar Ali, the only player to hit double digits. A total of five players, including both the openers, were bowled out for ducks. © Reuters Adrian Neill and Ruaidhri Smith proved picked four wickets each for Scotland, giving away just 14 runs in total. It was a piece of cake for the Scottish-openers, Matthew Cross and Kyle Coetzer, who wasted little time, and wrapped up the innings in 20 balls, with 10 wickets in hands. Here's how cricket fans all over the world reacted on the social media: What an absolute hammering! Well played Scotland ð´ó §ó ¢ó ³ó £ó ´ó ¿ ðð pic.twitter.com/O81u9Uz0In — David Lundberg (@Bankieboy73) February 19, 2019 Wow great effort guys down nets for a hit or golf let's keep it up keep playing hard cricket — Chef b crawford (@crazycrwf1) February 19, 2019 Love that our last 2 ODIs are: Scotland beat England Scotland beat Oman One day the ICC will sort out what constitutes a ranked game. — Charles Davie (@chuckdavie) February 19, 2019 Yes. A world record. Well except @ICC dont consider Oman a ranked side, despite them being one of the top 20 sides in the world. But screw the @ICC - keep on winning Scotland! — Charles Davie (@chuckdavie) February 19, 2019 Lowest Ever ODI Totals Before this match : 1. Zimbabwe getting bowled out for 35 runs against Sri Lanka in 2004 2. Canada being restricted to 36 runs by Sri Lanka in 2003 3. Zimbabwe scoring mere 38 runs against Sri Lanka in 2001 4. Pakistan being succumbed to 43 against West Indies in 1993 5. Zimbabwe posting total of 44 against Sri Lanka in 2009.
  6. What do you keep in mind before investing in a t-shirt? For a vast majority of men, the most common factors include the right style, fit, colour, and in a number of cases, the cost. If there's one thing that we can say for certain, it's that there are very few men who actually care about the quality of fabric, let alone pay heed to its origin, and how it's cultivated. This is mostly justified, as the world today is fast-paced with everyone hustling to reach places, and longing to accomplish new heights. Amidst the bustling lives that we all lead, being stylish and fashion-forward in itself is a task, and most men are only left with the option (or time!) of throwing a casual tee over a pair of trousers before walking out of their house. Add to this the fact that we lack the hours to even look after our own selves, and having enough time to scour for the best quality clothes may not be feasible to all. On top of it all, expecting one to take care of the environment while picking garments as well, would just be too much of an expectation. While you may not get the time to plant a tree or participate in an environment-friendly drive as an endeavour to protect the environment, there are certain things that you can do that will help you be more eco-friendly, the most effective of them being investing in organic cotton. Organic cotton is the type of cotton which is farmed without the use of any chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or insecticides, which in turn prevents environmental degradation, and at the same time, enhances biodiversity. A number of brands today are committed to promoting organic cotton production, and make use of the purest variety for curating a range of clothing articles, including t-shirts, trousers, and innerwear. Now, considering the fact that a t-shirt makes for the quintessential component of any man's wardrobe, and to help you be more environment-friendly, we have compiled this list of the best organic cotton t-shirts that you must stock your wardrobe with: 1. Nicobar's Organic Cotton T-Shirt © Nicobar Nicobar is one of the leading brands which deal in garments which are crafted out of 100% organic cotton and does a wonderful job in its sector.

  7. The heinous suicide terror attack on the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy might have sent the entire nation into a state of mourning, but, at the same time, it has united India and its citizens against the common evil of terrorism. As the country grieves and mourns the loss of brave CRPF personnel, the civilians have come forward to ensure their martyrdom doesn't go in vain. From politicians, celebrities to sports icons; everyone is now coming together to do their bit in aiding the families of the CRPF personnel who lost their lives in the ghastly Pulwama terror attack. While Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan has announced a donation of Rs 5 lakh each to the families of CRPF martyrs, boxer Vijender Singh donated his one month's salary for them. I'm donating my one month's salary for the martyrs of #PulwamaTerrorAttack and want everyone to come forward and support the families. It is our moral duty to always standby them and make them feel proud of their sacrifices.

Taking to Twitter, the 'Nawab of Najafgarh' claimed that it will be an honour for him to come to the aid of the soldiers killed in Pulwama. Nothing we can do will be enough, but the least I can do is offer to take complete care of the education of the children of our brave CRPF jawans martyred in #Pulwama in my Sehwag International School @SehwagSchool , Jhajjar.

  8. Whether you favour the clean shaven look, proudly maintain a bushy beard, or sport a facial hair style that falls somewhere in between these two, it's impossible to give up shaving completely, at least not if you want to look well groomed! Although men today gravitate towards the electric trimmer to help 'shave' seconds off their morning shaving ritual as they rush to work, they can't hope to match up to the smooth, close shave that the good old safety razor offers. The O.G. of shaving implements, the safety razor was the first shaving tool curated to reduce the reliance on professional barbers and put the power into your own hands (quite literally!). The origins of the safety razors we know today, i.e., a handle attached at right angles to a head in which a removable blade can be placed, can be traced back to early 19th century. Including a protective layer between the blade edge and the user's skin dramatically reduced the level of skill needed to shave injury-free, adding a 'safety element' to the design. Since then, the safety razor has evolved into a highly specialised piece of shaving tech that provides professional-level shaves right in your own bathroom. So, if you take your appearance seriously, adding the best safety razor to your grooming routine is the smartest decision you can take. And on that note, we've compiled this helpful list of the best options out there, to make your choice a little easier, and your morning shave much smoother (and safer).

  9. Yes, it's the day of love and just like everyone else, Netflix too decided to give some of it away to us, because honestly it's become a hell of a useful tool to celebrate all sorts of 'chills' we may want to with our loved ones. © Netflix On Valentine's Day though, Netflix has come out with a beautiful video to celebrate all kinds of love and we found it so endearing we had to go ahead and share it. The poetic journey of falling in love is a tale as old as time. From 'Mughal-E-Azam' to 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge', each story is filled with moments which remind us just how powerful human connections can be. © Netflix The video is a beautiful rendition of a modern-day love story between two men, who hopelessly fall in love with one another and live to celebrate their love, every day. As their relationship develops and their love grows stronger and 'stranger'. We follow them as they lay the foundations for their lives together... along with a small hiccup on the way. One of them watches an episode of their favourite show 'Stranger Things' without the other and what follows next is so endearing, it'll make you want to forgive every fight you may have ever had with your SO! © Netflix After all, at the end of the day, every relationship is an 'Original'. This love story was brought to life by acclaimed filmmaker Reema Sengupta. Through an emotive palate and lingering visuals, she captured this manifestation of Indian romance in all of its beauty. © Netflix "We wanted to come together to make a film that cares about what it says, how it says it and the processes through which it is made. It was exciting to know that Netflix cared just as much! Netflix really has become an integral part of the modern love story. A considerable portion of our relationships today are spent lazing around with our partners watching Netflix, discussing shows, or Netflix & chilling! A lot of love went into making this, and we all came out of it feeling much closer. Even while we were making the film, the entire crew could feel the importance of this representation and pushed themselves to the limit to bring this to life." Reema spoke about her film to Netflix. © Netflix After all, if we can't transcend the love we have for one another into stories then what's the point of even having love, to begin with! Stories catch the very essence of everything basic you need to fulfil an emotion and if we have a story on our favourite love portal, then there's nothing like it, is there! It's time to show courage, tell your story and aptly profess your love for one another this Valentine's Day!
  10. Valentine's Day is overrated. Every year, one rotten day, couples get to vomit all the cheese they produce in their respective relationships in the entire year on Instagram. Some of the the captions are beyond annoying. Did we mention the creepy hearts that flood the streets and the markets as they monetize this pathetic holiday? Pink and red become the most annoying colours. And what's with the gooey Whatsapp messages on family groups? it's like an epidemic spreading and consuming everything and everyone that comes in twos. If you're single this year, you're probably immune to this horrible disease of wasting away your money on hearts and chocolates. Good for you. And we appreciate you for that, which is why we have ideas for 14 of February to save you from all the exasperation of seeing all these couples. Here are some non-romantic ideas for Valentine's Day that you can enjoy with you and yourself: 1. Get Yourself A Comfy Night Suit © Instagram If you're going to stay at home and chill on Netflix, might as well get yourself a fresh pair of night suit set that makes you feel nice about yourself and also feels nice on the skin. You could indulge in solids or get a quirky pattern like avocados all over, or a Marvel/DC-themed set. 2. A New Pair Underwear & Quirky Socks To Match With It © HM If you're not big on staying in and would rather go hook up with someone because who even catches feelings #gross. A new pair of quirky underwear and socks are a great idea to turn around a dull evening. 3. Face Sheet Masks & Grooming Products © Instagram You could also get yourself Korean grooming products like a face sheet mask which locks in the moisture and hydrates your skin. Or a glowy mask, take a cue from celebrities like Ansel Elgort, John Mayer, at least you'll come out a man with skin that girls get jealous of. 4. Get A New Look © Instagram A great makeover is a great way to spend tomorrow. Go to a salon and get a new hairstyle that suits you. You'll surprise yourself with the power of a great haircut that will certainly turn heads around.
  11. Of all the grooming accessories that you will find in a man's grooming kit, the razor he uses possibly holds the most importance. It's his go-to tool for a quick shave, to groom his facial hair, and to be ready for an impromptu date. But despite the importance it harbours, it's surprising to discover that many men aren't even aware of all the different types of razors that are out there. In fact, as unbelievable as this may sound, but many Indian men's knowledge of razors is solely confined to the one that they are using. Needless to say, this needs to change. So, to help all of our bros invest in the right grooming essentials that perfectly cater to their needs, here are the different types of razors that all Indian men should be informed about: 1. Electric Razors © Pexels Unlike the other razors mentioned on our list, electric razors tend to run on electricity, and so don't require any shaving cream or water for you to shave. Primarily speaking, they can be classified into two main categories - foil shavers and rotary shavers. While foil shavers come equipped with a silver foil on the top of their blades that ensure that the blades themselves are never in direct contact with your skin, rotary shavers come equipped with three round shaped blades that move in a circular motion. Foil shavers are less noisy and easier to clean, whereas rotary shavers will help you get the closest shave. On the flip side, electric razors are dependent on a power supply, so they pretty much become ineffective if they run out of battery and you don't have the means to charge them. 2. Safety Razors © Amazon Of all the types of razors out there, safety razors are as old school as it gets. In fact, in all likelihood, this was the razor that your grandfather would have used for shaving his facial scruff. As the name suggests itself, these razors are considered to be the safest option to add to your grooming kit. This is because, while they come equipped with a double-edged blade, they also have a safety guard that helps protect your skin from unintentional cuts. Additionally, a safety razor also ensures that only a single razor blade is going to be making contact with your skin, which only adds to your sense of safety. Safety razors also tend to be incredibly easy to use, are super affordable, and maker for the perfect choice for all those men who are looking for an option that will require minimal pressure and cause the least amount of irritation on your skin. 3. Straight Razors © Amazon There used to be a time when straight razors were the only type of razors that were used for shaving. Nowadays, these are the razors you'd mostly see those local barbers who practice under a tree use for shaving. Also known as 'cut-throat' razors, these incredibly simple razors come equipped with a sharp blade that folds into the handle. It's a great choice for those looking for a razor that will give them the sharpest of shaves, which will be incredibly durable and won't cost a fortune. However, it's important to remember that these razors also provide the least amount of security, and you can easily cause a serious injury to yourself. 4. Cartridge Razors © Amazon These are perhaps the most commonly used type of razors out there. In fact, if you were to go to your washroom right now and take a closer look at the type of razor you are currently using, chances are it's going to be a cartridge razor. They are mostly made of a metal or plastic body, with a flexible centre that helps you get a smooth shave as it follows the shape of your face. The blades in these razors come in cartridges (hence the name), which are easily replaceable. The cartridges can have anywhere between two to six blades and are incredibly safe to use. Depending on the number of blades they have, they can be mostly classified into the following types of razors: A) Two-blade razors B)Three-blade razors C) Five-blade razors 5. Disposable Razors © Amazon The name pretty much speaks for itself. Disposable razors are perfect for those looking for a cheap and quick shave, perhaps for an impromptu meeting or an unexpected dinner date. You can use them for a couple of shaves, before discarding them, which is why they end up being the best razors for all those avid-travellers who may be planning a road trip or weekend getaway but don't want their razor or trimmer to take up extra space in their bags. Despite their usefulness, however, you should know that the blades that are used in such razors aren't exactly of the highest quality.
  12. It's 2019! The year of the pig and to sheer coincidence, it's also the year of Lok Sabha elections in India, as every party, every candidate is burning the midnight oil in order to end up on top. A majority of our politicians have been travelling all over the country in order to boost their chances of winning. Speaking of which, our Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his entourage reached Vrindavan to serve food to underprivileged school children. The reason for this visit was to mark the three billionth meal offered by the Akshaya Patra Foundation. A Bengaluru-based non-profit organisation - Akshaya Patra Foundation, has worked with the government to provide mid-day meals. Amidst the event, Prime Minister Narendra Modi indulged in a conversation with a boy saying, ”Barah baje milna chahiye tha khaana, der se aaya Pradhan Mantri, aapka khaana late ho gaya, haina?” Before the boy could answer, a girl sitting next to him intervened and her innocent reply will crack you up. View this post on Instagram Had a good conversation with the children. They didn't mind the late lunch :) #AkshayPatra A post shared by Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) on Feb 11, 2019 at 12:40am PST Well, what can we say? Children are indeed the epitome of honesty!
  13. "...Math, science, history, unraveling the mysteries That all started with the big bang!" The Big Bang Theory song is everything you need to know about how we (read: Earth) came into existence. Although, to think about it, the first ever big bang marked the beginning of the world. Ever wondered what will happen if and when a second big bang happens? Even better - What is the last thing you would do if it all ended with a big bang? I think I am going to stuff myself with a cheesecake. Because why not? Who cares about carbs now that everything is coming to an end. Then again, it's me. So, I asked some what is the last thing they would do if it all ended with a big bang, and here are some of the top answers: 1. I think I am going to grow a pair and tell my crush how I felt about her for the last seven years. 2. I have been saving up for a solo Paris trip. Might as well do that! 3. Have *** for one last time! No doubt about that. 4. Delete texts. Because someone ALWAYS survives and I would not want to take that risk. 5. I think I am going to treat myself with every kind of biryani that is there on the menu. And oh, have beer too! 6. I am going to go up to my school bully and punch him hard in the face. No holds barred! 7. Have the last cigarette with my best friend. 8. Tell the next-door 'sanskari' aunty, "Your *** life cannot EVER be is as exciting as mine. And now you are going to die too!" 9. Watch my favourite show live from L.A. Now that can be a possibility. No kidding, guys! It really is. How, you ask? Our favourite series on Zee Café - 'The Big Bang Theory' is coming to an end, and as much as we are unhappy about it, here is a silver lining to this sad news.

  14. We're sure that so far you've got your grooming basics right and you're most probably washing your face at least once a day and using a moisturizer (if you're not, you should definitely read this). But apart from that, there is one essential grooming product that men fail to add to their grooming kit that can change their skins for good. A BB Cream. © Getty Images South Korean beauty and grooming secrets are a treasure and should be adapted because have you seen these guys age? They never do. A BB Cream, a South Korean discovery is that one product you should definitely have in your grooming kit. BB creams also known as blemish balms aim to blur out imperfections whilst also taking care of pigmentation, oil control and hydrating skin simultaneously. It also gives the benefit of sun protection, oil control and an anti-ageing in one cream. © Getty Images It's also an easy remedy to cover scars, blemishes and skin discolouration like an Instagram filter, except this work in IRL being a product squished inside a tube. © Getty Images They might look like it's a feminine product, but they also come in unisex packaging. Use a BB cream next time before a big date to hide the bugging pimples, scars and blemishes. It really makes a difference.
  15. That time of the year is finally here. The Grammys Red Carpet remains the most anticipated event when it comes to Hollywood fashion. The Grammys have been giving us some of the most iconic fashion moments over the years. This year, they definitely did rise up to the expectations and didn't disappoint us. With all the sizzling controversies involving Ariana Grande, Drake and Cardi B and her pianist stealing the whole show, the 2019 Grammys is already on its way to becoming the most talked about event of the year. When it comes to fashion, the Grammys red carpet serves more looks than the Oscars because of its younger audience and nominees. Being fashion icons and believing in expression through dressing, pop artists tend to experiment with fashion more which equals to more drama on the red carpet. The men of the entertainment business don't shy away from a good head turning look either. Have a look at the 12 quirkiest looks form the Grammys 2019 Red Carpet that turned heads for all the right reasons: 1. Ricky Rebel © Getty Images Let's talk about the one sparking the most talks, shall we? Singer Ricky Rebel walked down the red carpet in a reversible pro-Trump jacket from designer Andre Soriano. The jacket had 'Keep America Great' text which a play on Donald Trump's political slogan on one side and 'Trump 2020' on the other. The outfit has already sparked tons of negative talk about its political statement and about the upcoming US elections next year. 2. Leon Bridges © Getty Images A name in soul music, Leon Bridges sported a custom made 2-piece set by designer Emily Bode. The mustard-coloured corduroy set was covered in little drawings that referenced his home state of Texas and his own music as well. That's one hell of a customization, we say! 3. Post Malone © Getty Images If there's one thing to know about Post Malone, he loves his flashy suits. They are a statement on their own and quirky as hell. This year was no less, as the singer sported a salmon coloured bedazzled suit covered with silver star embellishments, which he topped off with matching pink cowboy boots. This look was put together by costume designer Catherine Hahn, who is one of the artist's favourite designers. Pink is the new black, we see! 4. Kyle Trewartha and Michael Trewartha © Getty Images Like the Fiji water girl at the Oscars, the twins with the silver hair were the Grammy mystery people this year. The twins who are Kyle Trewartha and Michael Trewartha dazzled the red carpet in designer wear which was perfectly layered and stormy weather ready. Yes, they look like The Chainsmokers. No, they're not them. The ice twins definitely do have style, though. 5. Ben Harper © Getty Images If there's one way to ditch the boring black tie and go full ham, Ben Harper should be your guide. Ben Harper did enter full bedazzle mode in a jacket showing off yellow sequined paisley motifs worn with a broad-brim hat. The Nike basketball shoes add an extra edge to the outfit. Very country, yet very sporty. An interesting combination. 6. Young Thug © Getty Images If there's one way to stand out, it has to be to get in with the fluorescent trend. And since bright neon colours always make their mark in the athleisure world, it has to have an active presence on the red carpet too, right? Young Thug stood out from the crowd in a fluorescent lime green hoodie paired with a red cropped leather jacket. The rapper paired it with beige pants and red sneakers for the too-cool-to-care look and we lowkey dig it. 7. Swae Lee © Getty Images Popular singer Swae Lee left his mark on the red carpet with his out of the box fashion choice for this year's Grammys. Seen in a laced see-through shirt paired with studded M.X By Maxine Simoens pants and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, Swae stole the show with his peek-a-boo outfit! 8. Jaden Smith © Getty Images Jaden Smith always manages to make heads turn at every red carpet ever. His unapologetic street-inspired style is pretty much what is expected of him. He didn't disappoint this time around with a black hoodie, a multi-coloured graphic jacket and chain detailing all over his upper and lower body. No one can pull off a Jaden Smith exclusive better than Jaden himself! 9. Fantastic Negrito © Getty Images The American singer wore a customized red suit with colourful swatches of fabric making up the pockets. A silver necklace with two fish hung from his neck which he mentions used to be a belt buckle. His whole outfit was apparently inspired by 'upcycling', which is using discarded material to design something that is of a higher quality than the original. 10. Kane Brown © Getty Images Singer Kane Brown doesn't shy away from some print. Seen sporting a Versace black and gold printed shirt with a Versace blazer with the same print on the inner lining as well. Donning daring prints sure seems like a bold fashion statement but Kane wears them like a champion! 11. Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith and Flea © Getty Images Members of the popular rock band 'Red Hot Chili Peppers' Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, and Flea turned up at the red carpet and stole a lot of attention for their attire. The perfect mix of eccentric, bold and daring, their outfits were downright rocking. With Anthony's all floral suit, Chad's floral shirt and multi-coloured sneakers to Flea's jacquard pants and hat, they did bring the heat with them. 12.

Hector's outfit being a spin on an album cover itself with gold star motifs all over was interesting while Andrea's outfit was actually him being a real-life version of a Grammy award complete with a headgear and buttons representing the iconic gramophone shape was an eye-catcher. The award or rather Andrea himself was addressed to their band Aterciopelados indicating that they were expecting a definite win. These few were amongst the many others who made an appearance at the Grammy Awards 2019 and gave fashion a new definition. You have our attention, Hollywood!
  16. Someone telling you that you smell great is the best kind of compliment you could get. Your favourite cologne or perfume can make a great impression on ladies. But only if it lasts long enough. When you hustle all day at the office from 9 am to 5 pm, your signature scent tends to fade off. What's the point of spending so much money on perfumes if they won't last long enough? Here are a few ways to make sure your perfume lasts longer for that great first impression: 1. Stop Spraying It On Your Clothes © Gettyimages If you are guilty of doing so like most people are, correct your ways. When you spray cologne all over your clothes, you not only ruin them but also make the perfume disperse. The airflow causes perfume to disperse and leaves you with a dying fragrance all day. Spray it on your body to make sure it stays put all day long. 2. Rubbing Your Wrists Together Is A Big No-No © Gettyimages Just because you've been doing it since ages doesn't mean it's the right way. When you rub your wrists together, you're just diffusing the top notes and leaving the middle and base notes of your fragrance. For a long-lasting cologne, rubbing your wrists to absorb it isn't the way to go. Let it air-dry for that fresh smell all day. 3. Layer Your Fragrances © Gettyimages We see brands coming up with aftershaves, lotions, creams, perfumes and body washes of the same scent. Ever wondered why? When you layer up your scent with a product of the same scent, the effect is much more amplified and lasts way longer. Use the same scented products as your signature fragrance and you'll be sorted for at least 8 hours. 4. Spray On Your Pulse Points © Gettyimages If you want your perfume to last all day, you might want to consider specific places to spray it on. The pulse points of the body are the warmer parts of the body which are behind your neck, ear, elbow and knees. These spots generate body heat that helps endure the notes of your scent for a longer period of time. 5. Moisturizer Is Key © Gettyimages Applying moisturizer on your pulse points will make the scent easier to absorb and help carry it longer. Skipping this step can make your cologne disappear within minutes. These definitive ways will make sure you make a lasting impression. Spritz your cologne the right way and let it do the talking!
  17. Whenever it comes to styling outfits be it formal or casual wear, every little detail matters. Your outfit can be one to remember or a hit-and-miss, all because it wasn't accessorized well. Accessories like your belt, socks, jewellery, shoes play a vital role in taking an outfit from basic to next level. Accessories are often taken as an optional thing when it comes to putting an outfit together. Often we don't realize the errors that we make while matching one's accessories. Such a minimal step can transform your whole look and be the difference between a plain old meeting and a kickass first impression. Here are 4 guidelines one must consider sacred when it comes to matching accessories: 1. Match Your Belt To Your Shoes © Instagram @kartikaaryan Let's start with accessory basics, shall we? Most men know this rule already but do they actively consider it while dressing up? Here's why this is a crucial step in accessories. You need to match your belt to your shoes. Like a black belt, shoes should be worn with black shoes, a brown belt should be worn with brown footwear. Making the look uniform in colour keeps the aesthetic on point and makes you look professional. 2. Select The Right Tie © Instagram @ishabhansali Matching one's tie to their outfit is an essential step. Any old tie thrown on a shirt wouldn't compliment your outfit unless it goes with the colour scheme of the look. The right tie should stand out but have some elements of the theme of the outfit. Be careful while choosing a printed tie and remember to go for darker colours as they are more versatile. Also, your pocket squares should match your tie in some way or the other. Be it the same colour, print or pattern. 3. Matching Metals Is A Thing Too © Instagram @alifazal9 Yes. You read that right. Be it the frame of your glasses, watch, cufflinks or belt buckle, metals play an important part in making your outfit look as coherent as possible. Make sure it's all from the same metal family as shiny objects draw attention and are easily noticeable. This step would add finesse and symmetry to your outfit. Mind your metals, lads! 4. Choose The Right Sunnies © Instagram @vickykaushal09 Sunglasses are not just for the sun, they contribute an extra layer of style to your outfit. Choose your sunnies according to the setting you're planning to wear them in. The tint of your sunglasses should compliment the colour scheme of your outfit and make you stand out. Choose a rectangle or an aviator in a light tint for formal occasions and reflective sunglasses in a round or wayfarer style for more casual outings. See? It's the little details that separate boys from men.
  18. With Jason Momoa's 'Aquaman' becoming the highest grossing DC movie of all time, the game for DC inspired superhero films seems to be changing, as people are now taking them seriously than ever before. via GIPHY In the past, there have been a good number of DC inspired films that have done an incredible business at the box office. Take for example Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight' which transcended the whole idea of a superhero film. via GIPHY In this list we have jotted down some of the major DC blockbusters, having considered their critics' rating and viewership. Here are the best DC Comics-inspired films of all time. Scroll down to see which of your favourite films have been covered in the list: 1. The Dark Knight (2008) Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight' has changed the narrative around superhero movies forever. The film is deeply involving and raised the bar of the superhero-thriller genre. With polished CGIs, out of the box storytelling and Oscar-worthy performances, 'The Dark Knight' became one of the most loved Christopher Nolan films of all time. via GIPHY Fans loved to see the Joker (Heath Ledger) waving his head out of a speeding car, spilling madness and sheer talent. He was given an Oscar posthumously for his supporting role in the film. On the other hand, Christian Bale strictly followed his character and turned out to be the most good looking Batman! The film went on to get nominated in eight categories for the Academy Awards ultimately winning two. 2. Wonder Woman (2017) Gal Gadot's 'Wonder Woman' is one film that has broken stereotypes and many records. The film is a perfect example of what a female superhero film should look like. via GIPHY The film-makers made sure to deliver a tale of a heroic character in its truest sense and succeed in their task. 'Wonder Woman' received positive reviews at the box office and has been considered the best female superhero films of all time. via GIPHY Directed by Patty Jenkins, the film is so far a good recommendation when it comes to DC movies. 3. Superman (1978) Written by Mario Puzo, 'Superman' is believed to be a thoughtful superhero film. Set in the late 70s, director Richard Donner perfectly crafted the superhero into the real world. Christopher Reeve played the protagonist and even received praise from the critics for his performance. via GIPHY The film's story revolves around how Kal Al develops superhuman abilities and is raised as Clark Kent only to save the world from evil powers. 'Superman' went on to be nominated for three Academy Awards. The film turned out to be highly entertaining and even made a good sum of money at the box office. Marlon Brando's performance has also been praised in the film. 4. Batman Begins (2005) 'Batman Begins' officially marked Christopher Nolan's arrival into mainstream Hollywood. The film franchise that had got saturated with 'Batman & Robin', was ultimately saved at the hands of the director. The world had no idea of how Warner Bros. had consciously put the film in the hands of a genius film-maker. via GIPHY With superb acting coming from Christian Bale and a darker, highly pragmatic story, the film succeeded in gathering huge box office earnings. It also received an Academy Award nomination and largely positive reviews from the critics. Christopher Nolan went on to direct two more films including 'The Dark Knight' and 'The Dark Knight Rises' (the three films constitute 'The Dark Knight Trilogy'). 5. Batman (1989) The millennials might be in love with Christian Bale or Ben Affleck playing Bruce Wayne, however, not many are aware of the fact that Michael Keaton has also remained an equally fit protagonist to have played Bruce Wayne. via GIPHY Starring Keaton as Batman and Jack Nicholson as the Joker, the 1989 flick is the first instalment of Warner Bros.' introductory 'Batman' film series. The film revolves around the protagonist fighting the war against the evils of the Gotham city as he deals with Joker simultaneously. Directed by Tim Burton, 'Batman' has got one Academy Award win to its name. 6. The Dark Knight Rises (2012) Four years after the release of 'The Dark Knight', Christopher Nolan put forth the final instalment of the trilogy; 'The Dark Knight Rises' decided the fate of the caped crusader and thus ended an era of the Bale-Nolan saga. While Christian Bale reprises the role of Bruce Wayne, Tom Hardy (Bane) plays the villain. via GIPHY Others in the cast include Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman. As Bane takes control of Gotham city and turns people against the good, Batman comes out of his hiding and protects the city from getting blown away. 7. Batman Returns (1992) Directed by Tim Burton, 'Batman Returns' is the second instalment in the initial 'Batman' film series. Michael Keaton makes his return as Bruce Wayne. The film also stars Danny DeVito (Penguin), Michelle Pfeiffer (Catwoman), and Christopher Walken (businessman Max Shreck). via GIPHY Batman fights the Penguin who is on a mass killing spree. The film received an overall great response and even went on to be nominated for two Academy Awards. Unlike other films, the bats in the film were created entirely using effects. 'Batman Returns' marked the highest opening weekend in 1992 which also turned out to be highest opening weekend for any film till that date. 8. V for Vendetta (2005) Directed by James McTeigue, 'V for Vendetta' is one DC film that has got a similar theme to that of 'The Dark Knight'. A freedom fighter who calls himself V (Hugo Weaving ) spreads terror with the help of Evey (Natalie Portman), to bring down the government. via GIPHY The film is set in an alternative future and leaves the audience mesmerized by the means of a powerful story. The dystopian political thriller has remained a matter of discussion for both critics and movie buffs. The film is based on a graphic novel written by Alan Moore however, he later disowned the film and even got his name removed from the credits. 9. Batman: Mask Of The Phantasm (1993) Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski's 'Batman: Mask of the Phantasm' is one of the most imaginative films of its time. Though the film opened to disappointing statistics despite being a Christmas release, it went on to become a highly acclaimed movie. via GIPHY The animated saga didn't turn out to be an eye catcher with almost no pre-release marketing, but there was something so unusual and gripping about the film that attracted the audience years later. via GIPHY Fabricated around the Gotham City, Batman (Kevin Conroy) chases the grim-faced Phantasm (Mark Hamill), an assassinator. “The characters have feelings and motivations”, said famous film critic Roger Ebert about this dark animated story. 10. Man of Steel (2013) Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' is the first instalment in the DC Extended Universe and features 'Superman'. The film stars Henry Cavill and Amy Adams in lead roles and narrates the transformation of Clark Kent into a superhuman. via GIPHY Cavill also happens to be the first non-American and British actor to play 'Superman'. Critics have considered the film to be a religious allegory. 'Superman's' mission in the film has been understood to be similar to that of Jesus Christ. via GIPHY Not many are aware of the fact that Warner Bros. set up a website containing a nine-page long description entitled 'Jesus – The Original Superhero', during the time of the film's release. The movie became the highest-earning solo 'Superman' film ever and received mixed reviews from critics.
  19. The new generation of the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has seen some really brilliant talent making their way to the biggest stage of them all. Even with some of the most established wrestlers like AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura making their WWE debut a couple of years ago, the biggest name of the new era remains that of Roman Reigns. Making his last WWE appearance all the way back in October'18, Reigns revealed to his fans that he was battling Leukemia for the past 11 years and had to go on a long break because of the in-depth recovery process. The 'Big Dog' was therefore forced to give up his title in a winter episode of Monday night RAW last year. Thank you to everyone who's reached out...I can't put into words what it means to me. Your energy and positivity motivate me to get better quickly to get back in the ring, but for now I'm going to spend time with my family and focus on health. Thank you - Joe/Roman — Roman Reigns (@WWERomanReigns) October 23, 2018 However, it appears that Roman's recovery process is coming to fruition as the Samoan is all set to make an appearance in The Fast & The Furious spin-off 'Hobbs & Shaw' alongside his cousin and The Chosen One, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson this August. © Universal Pictures Dwayne Johnson was extremely proud of his cousin's debut performance during the shoot of 'Hobbs & Shaw' and took to Twitter to express his affection towards the former Shield member. He also commended how Reigns has shown “perseverance and strength” in his battle against the progressive disease. He also mentions how Roman's recovery has led to the upliftment of his consciousness. Very proud of him. His leukemia recovery has elevated his state of mind to a whole other level. And it was fuuuun to go legit beast mode with my cousin in our movie where he plays my brother. #LetTheBodiesHitTheFloor #HobbsAndShaw AUG 2nd. https://t.co/bqpLFQC1Z1 — Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) January 28, 2019 Roman Reigns has been criticised for his poor performance with the mic - an integral part of becoming successful in the business as, apart from the in-ring techniques, the 'promos' play a major role in the fans or the 'WWE Universe' loving or hating a character. Even John Cena bashed 'The Guy' for not preparing himself before shooting a promo, which led to the creation of some serious buzz in 2017. With a bad name in what is essentially 'acting', it would be interesting to see how well the wrestler does in his silver screen debut.
  20. They say there are six other people besides ourselves in this world, who can stand in as our doppelgangers on a given day. However, research has claimed that the likelihood of bumping into our doppelganger in a lifetime is only 1 in a trillion. Yet somehow, celebrities like Salman Khan seem to have gotten lucky in this case more than once! Now joining the bandwagon very recently are two other leading Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt and Anushka Sharma. Alia's lookalike Sanayaashu went viral with a video recreating a scene from Alia's upcoming movie 'Gully Boy' yesterday. View this post on Instagram #gullyboy #aliabhatt #aliabhattfans #ranveersingh A post shared by sanayaashu (@ashu0876962) on Jan 23, 2019 at 2:47am PST Whereas netizens went crazy over the sighting of Anushka Sharma's American doppelganger in Julia Michaels. The American singer is said to share striking similarities with the 'Zero' actress, and it didn't take long for her fans to notice and go crazy over it. Sure enough it caught the attention of the two individuals in question, who took to Twitter to share their amusement. While Julia tagged Anushka on her post and said “apparently we're twins lol”, Hi @AnushkaSharma apparently we're twins lol ð¯‍âï¸ð¯‍âï¸ pic.twitter.com/eYb9xjGBb2 — Julia Michaels (@juliamichaels) February 5, 2019 Anushka also came to acknowledge the possibility that the two indeed look very similar in photos. She retweeted Julia's tweet and exclaimed that she had been looking for her (and her other five doppelgangers) all her life! OMG YES!! ð² I've been looking for you and the remaining 5 of our dopplegangers all my life ð https://t.co/SaYbclXyXt — Anushka Sharma (@AnushkaSharma) February 5, 2019 It was really cool of the two ladies to play along.
  21. (The quotations for this story was taken from an interview originally conducted by Ravi Gupta for MensXP Hindi.) Love - /lÊv/ - Noun. An intense feeling of deep affection. Love - /lÊv/ - Verb. Feel deep affection or sexual love for (someone). Those are the standard definitions of love that one is likely to find in any given dictionary picked off the shelf. Some will say that for the most part, love oscillates between two parts of speech, either written between pages and spelled out in black ink, or to be found between the warm and ruffled sheets that say it all. Yet, every now and then we stumble across those who hold a very different definition of love. One which is expressed through abstractions, such as how their lover's smile makes their heart skip a beat, or how the silent support and company of the beloved feels like the greatest prophesy of love. © Vaibhav & Parag Love often shows up uninvited, takes away our breath and is such an invigorating feeling, we end up craving for the next wave to hit us, much before the high from first one fades. It's maddening and heartening all at once, much like the brewing emotion that ebbs and flows within our cardiac valves, almost threatening to spill over and drown us with its depth of feeling. The bottomline being, there is no set definition of love. Each one of us experiences it differently, in different forms, in varying situations and with equally different kinds of people. But that is not to say that any of those forms of love are not worth celebrating. Much like the ardent love that Vaibhav and Parag share between them. © Vaibhav & Parag 32-year-old Vaibhav Jain was born and brought up in Delhi, before he moved to the US to pursue his masters, upon completing his BDS degree. Indian society's intolerance and lack of sympathy towards the LGBTQ community forced Vaibhav to hide his true identity and later leave his home state in search of a safe haven. It was back in 2012 when Vaibhav saw his future-husband Parag for the first time during a Pride Parade. There was an instant feeling of recognition, and Vaibhav sought to further it. He looked up Parag on Facebook and sent him a private message. As the two gradually began to get to know each other, Vaibhav asked Parag out for dinner at a Thai restaurant. © Vaibhav & Parag Though the date turned out to be a mess since the food at the restaurant was a disaster, Vaibhav tells us that regardless of the unappetising food, their first date remains truly memorable. The two spent hours talking, and when they finally left, it started raining. The pitter-patter of the rain inspired Vaibhav to serenade to his favourite singer Mohammed Rafi's song 'tere mere sapne'. This is how they ended up spending 6 hours together on their first date. Now while their innocent love slowly began to bloom, the distance that separated them began to seem like a bother. Hence, one day Parag suggested that Vaibhav moved-in with him. This was even before either of them had confessed their love for each other, which made Vaibhav a little hesitant to make the move. But as their shared understanding began to grow stronger, Vaibhav slowly started the process of moving in with Parag. © Vaibhav & Parag As time passed, both Vaibhav and Parag began to fall deeper in love, and eventually Parag confessed his feelings to Vaibhav. A moment, as Vaibhav tells us, “that still makes me blush.” However, something continued to eat him even as Parag's love filled his heart with warmth. The discrimination that Vaibhav faced in India over the years left deep-rooted psychological impact which prevented him from openly welcoming the affection that Parag showered on him. Once this diagnosis was reached, Parag stood strong beside Vaibhav and helped him believe and put his trust on their relationship and what they shared together. © Vaibhav & Parag Now, while Parag had already come out to his parents 15 years ago, he wished for Vaibhav to come out to his family as soon as possible. As the desire for a future together began to grow stronger, Parag's insistence became more urgent. Vaibhav was also convinced that he wanted to go public with his relationship, and began looking for the right opportunity to break the news to his parents. Finally when he landed an internship with WHO in Switzerland, Vaibhav asked his parents to join him for the trip. It was on the last night before Vaibhav's parents left for India, that he decided to come out to his parents. “I don't like girls, and I don't wish to marry one either. I am gay and I have known it since I was 14-15 years old,” Vaibhav told his parents. While both his parents were shocked by the news, they offered Vaibhav their unconditional love and support. His mother even remarked that she must have failed somehow as a parent – not because he was gay, but because he didn't feel safe telling her his truth for so long. Vaibhav confessed that, “though my parents couldn't sleep peacefully that night, but I have been sleeping peacefully ever since that night.” © Vaibhav & Parag Cut to 2019 and the couple have already been legally married for over a year. However, when it comes to desi, big fat Indian weddings Vaibhav shares that, “ I believe in the traditional Indian wedding, and that's why Parag and I plan to get married is the desi style on 29th and 30th March this year. Since both of us are Jain we plan to follow the traditional wedding rituals and follow it up with a reception back in India.” Getting married isn't their only major plan for the near future. Vaibhav shares that, “I love kids. And though people are quick to suggest adoption for gay couples, we have decided to opt for surrogacy. That is not to say that I am opposed to the idea of adoption, but it's just that we want to try the other possibility. And as for the struggles of parenthood, I think Parag and I are ready for all of it.” © Vaibhav & Parag Talking about the possibility of officially creating a life with his husband in the future, Vaibhav has only one message to share with everyone. “Every human being is precious, and no one should be discriminated against. Everybody deserves to live and the society needs to understand it. If my 85-year-old grandmother can accept our love and bless us, then why can't others do the same? Even if the society fails to understand us, I would still urge others like me to come out and face their truth. If I can do it, why can't you?”

  23. The 'Super Bowl' is a widely watched event worldwide and hence always brings a bag of goodies in the form of some big shot trailers and teasers dropping our way. Here are the top 5 movies trailers that left us all excited: 1. Avengers: Endgame- Tony Stark is coming back and everyone is gearing up to take on Thanos. How do we keep calm now? April is way too far! 2. Captain Marvel- This one is going to be special with Brie Larson, as the insanely powerful Captain Marvel, getting stuck and fighting it out between two alien races. 3. Toy Story 4- This one is packed with a lot of action and nostalgia because Bo Peep is coming back after more than 20 years after making a debut back in 1999. The movie will hit theatres in June. 4. Fast And Furious Presents: Hobbs And Shaw- This is going to be the 'Fast And Furious' spin-off that we deserve and stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham who will begrudgingly join hands to fight the terror known as Brixton. 5. The Handmaid's Tale ( Season 3)- If you're a fan of this mega-popular series, then we know that you're on pins and needles waiting for the release of this one.

  24. Rajkummar Rao dons many hats, and not only do we feel that he carries each one of them effortlessly but also with perfection. Not only is the actor capable of entertaining his fans and audience to the hilt with his talent in front of the camera, but the method artist also brings out new aspects to the characters he plays on-screen. From funny and playful, to serious and thoughtful, Rajkummar has wooed us all with his skills when it comes to getting into the skin of the character. However, it wouldn't be wrong to claim that he has considerable talent when it comes to tapping a foot to Bollywood numbers as well, and it is indeed safe to say that he is far better than a certain Khan in the industry. *wink wink* © Star Plus But did you guys know that even before the acting bug bit Rajkummar, he was taken by the desire to make it as a successful dancer? Rajkummar disclosed the fact that as a young teenager, he really wished to become a dancer and even gave it a shot. Here is what he had to say about that phase when he visited the set of 'Super Dancer Chapter 3' along with the cast of 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga'. © Maddock Films Talking about that time from his childhood, Rajkummar said that he was very fond of dancing and wanted to become a dancer. He even travelled to Mumbai as a 16-year-old in order to give his shot at dancing and auditioned for the popular dance show 'Boogie Woogie'. However, things didn't go as planned and he got rejected. But Rajkummar is quick to add that the rejection made all the difference to his life. © Star Plus Why? Because it gave him the option to explore other options and now look where he has ended up! “I was in the tenth standard when I came to Mumbai from Gurgaon for the first time, I always wanted to be a dancer and came here for the auditions of 'Boogie Woogie' where I got rejected. I was sixteen-years-old when I came here. I was very disheartened by that rejection then but today I am so glad that I got rejected. It got me to a better career that I am in today.” Such a classic optimist Rajkummar is!
  25. April seems like a far cry for any Marvel fan awaiting the release of the 'Avengers: Endgame' movie and rightly so. A few hours ago, during the Super Bowl, Marvel casually dropped an exciting bomb for fans when the latest teaser for the movie was released. The teaser obviously gives us a glimpse of the post Thanos-stricken world which almost looks like a post-apocalyptic universe--silent and dark. The Russo brothers know how to ace their direction in order to ensure that your adrenaline continues to pump harder. The heroes must unite to fight for whatever is left and that is exactly what shall happen. The real #SuperBowl champions. #AvengersEndgame pic.twitter.com/AQ9xBGUlpc — Jennifer Ann (@jnifferann) February 4, 2019 As expected, Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), War Machine (Don Cheadle), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) make their appearances in the teaser. Oh and Tony Stark might have found a way to come back, or is that what we think? Fans are insanely excited about this one. I bet Tony sent that message to Pepper and 5 minutes later he decided that he ain't gonna die on that ship.#AvengersEndgame pic.twitter.com/PBfOM74pVE — bi-derman Kata ︽âµï¸½ (@IR0NSPIDEY) February 4, 2019 CAN'T WAIT CAN'T WAIT CAN'T WAIT CAN'T WAIT CAN'T WAIT CAN'T WAIT #AvengersEndgame #superbowl #HalftimeHeat @MarvelStudios pic.twitter.com/ndQ9RdgirG — !
