  1. Majority of Indians residing within the geographic coordinates that map out the boundary of the subcontinent, fall under the category of medium to dark wheatish or “olive” skin tone. By most “English” or Western standards, we are the perfect specimen of “brown people”. While such demographic segregation and racism prevalent in the West aren't new to Indians, there is a painful truth to be experienced in the kind of off-handed racism that is practised within India, by Indians and for Indians. © Instagram The Indian subcontinent's collective blind love for the “fairer ones” is something all of us are aware of. For ages now, Indians have drooled over and craved for the lighter shades of skin tone one might find on those shade scales they proudly show off in TV commercials. However, while Indian women have had to suffer from and live under the constant scrutiny of old hags nagging them and lamenting over their “dark skin” colour for ages, they found solace in their grandmother's home remedies, that promised to lighten their skin and make them “look more desirable” as per the requirements of the Indian marriage market. © Instagram Enter commercialisation, and the home remedies were quickly replaced by magical tubes of modernised (albeit chemically formulated) “ubtan” recipes that had made their way to fancy fairness creams and lotions that thrived on women's insecurities and constant pressure to match up to the (unrealistic and cruel) social standards of beauty. The “fairness” furthering business opened a gold mine of money making opportunity that these fairness cream companies exploited for years. But things took a new turn when they made a discovery that would forever change how we saw the fairness cream industry. © Instagram Until the mid-2000s shaving creams and deodorants were the primary grooming products that were sold to men through commercial ads. However, the market study showed there was a solid opportunity of expanding men's grooming range, and soon, fairness products for men were launched. Dheeraj Sinha, chief strategy officer at Leo Burnett told QZ India that, “The men's fairness segment came about because almost one-third of users of women's fairness creams were men.” Even a Vice News report aired on HBO stated that around 60% of women and 10% of men say they use fairness products. © Instagram This led to a boom in the men's skin-care industry and as of 2017 the market grew by 40% and the industry was said to be worth around rupees 5,000 crores. That's not all, a 2015 research study by Nielsen showed that men got into the bandwagon because they believed that a fair complexion could improve their professional prospects. This only confirms that the “idea” of fair as handsome is both personal and is slowly making its way into people's reflection of themselves professionally. Yet, there also exist a lot of aware men who realise that companies are feeding on people's insecurities to cash in on more money and jump the success ladder. Bollywood actors such as Nandita Das, Kangana Ranaut and more recently Abhay Deol, have joined in to call out such companies and their products, and even fellow actors who endorse such brands and their skin whitening products. © Instagram However, since awareness is growing by the day, and more men (and women) continue to realise that they are being fooled by these companies and their products, brands are coming up with more cunning ways of selling their products to consumers. According to Sinha, “My sense is that brands will wake up to the new reality, and you will see propositions reworked around clearer skin (and) glow, rather than pure fairness,” and honestly we have already seen that happening lately. © Instagram It's disheartening to see how society's idea of “normal” and “beautiful” can disrupt people's perception of themselves, wherein they come to think of themselves as inferior to someone, merely because their skin is a shade or two darker than that of others around them. We often hear women say “love and accept yourself for who and how you are” and we hope men also follow this thumb rule and come to take pride in what has been given to them at birth. Trust us, women love that in a man, the ability to be comfortable and confident in their own skin.
  2. Samsung and Huawei kicked-off MWC 2019 with their foldable phones and we're still trying to wrap our heads around the groundbreaking technology. Social media and forums are filled with optimists as well as pessimists, and this has become the hottest topic for enthusiasts right now. Companies are ready to mass produce bendable displays, but one question still remains. How are we going to use these foldable phones in real life? How will the software compliment the hardware? It's going to take time to slowly understand different use case scenarios, and develop a finished product. © Nubia But, Nubia is taking this a level further with the launch of Nubia Alpha (styled as α). It's a combination of a watch and a phone, sporting a foldable display and the brand calls this a "wearable phone with a flexible display". To be honest, it's a fancy watch that offers more slightly more features than your regular wearable, but do we really need it right now? It sports a 4-inch 960x192 OLED screen that roughly covers half your wrist. Even though the brand claims it to be a phone, the specs say a different story. It comes with 1GB RAM, 8GB internal memory, and 500mAh battery. There's also a front-facing 5-megapixel camera. Nubia suggests the device will last 1-2 days of regular use, or a week on standby. © Nubia Just like the Apple Watch, it has a built-in eSIM which you can use for calls, texts, and all that other stuff SIM cards can do. It is water resistant, has activity and sleep-tracking along with a heart-rate sensor. Well, you can see movies on the watch if you don't mind standing with your arm lifted at the right angle all the time. And, the OS is custom built. Meaning, don't expect kick-ass app support anytime soon. The OS gets voice controls, air gestures, and other intuitive controls, but we're yet to see how smooth they really are. © Nubia On paper, the watch sounds exciting but lacks any practical usage. Yes, it is technically a "phone", but then the same can be said about the Apple Watch LTE as well. The watch costs a whopping €549 (Rs 44,000) in Europe and expected to ship from the third quarter of this year. Brands need to stop blindly following trends and think about delivering a usable product. You may manage to house a foldable display, but will it offer anything substantially better to the user in day-to-day life?
  3. Bollywood, as an industry, is dominated by powerful filmi families who have been a part of Bollywood for a long time, including those who have been around since the time of its inception in 1899. So, no matter which side we are on when it comes to nepotism, there is no denying that most star kids do possess the skills and have proved themselves time and again, regardless of the killer start they got to their careers when they started out. However, this got us thinking about these star kids making their on-screen debuts when it comes to sharing the screen-space with either or both of their parents. With the release of 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga' last Friday, we saw Sonam and Anil Kapoor share the screen together, and we must say that despite Sonam's acting skills, it was rather refreshing to watch the father-daughter duo in action on the big screen. The kind of dynamics they share off-screen found its way in front of the camera, and we have to admit we liked what we saw. © Vinod Chopra Films And surely this isn't the first time when Bollywood actors have shared screen space with their parents and rocked the screen together. We bring you 5 other Bollywood A-listers who have acted with their parents, and given us an entertaining joyride: 1. Amitabh Bachchan & Abhishek Bachchan © Mad Entertainment Their journey together as AB Sr. and AB Jr. started with 'Bunty Aur Babli' in 2005, which was followed by 'Sarkar', 'Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna' and then 'Paa' in 2009, with a special appearance in 'Shootout At Lokhandwala' as well. 2. Rishi, Neetu & Ranbir Kapoor © Movie Temple Productions When 'Besharam' released in 2013, its USP was that the Kapoors were all going to share the screen together as a family on-screen too. Though the film didn't do that well commercially, it was great to see the family together on-screen. 3. Soni Razdan & Alia Bhatt © Junglee Pictures 'Raazi' saw the mother and daughter come together in front of the camera, and we loved to see them bring their relationship on-screen as much as we love them off it. 4. Pankaj Kapoor & Shahid Kapoor © Junglee Pictures 'Shaandaar' was almost a family reunion on-screen for the Kapoors with Pankaj, Shahid and Sanah Kapoor coming together for this movie. 5. Dharmendra, Sunny & Bobby Deol © Phantom Films This father-and-son Jodi has entertained us one too many times, and we loved watching them make us laugh and cry with their antics in 'Yamla Pagla Deewana', 'Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se' and 'Apne'.
  4. (This copy doesn't contain any major spoilers but I would recommend you watch the show before reading it. Watch it with a fresh perspective, great things deserve unbiased applause!) The show is mostly about the Titans: Raven, Starfire, Beast Boy, and Nightwing - the first Robin. Mostly because it has the shadow of Bruce Wayne all over it, and that intriguing background makes it the best TV show of 2018. I was never much of a fan of Robin. The reason being, I admired Batman and his one-man-army approach way too much to digest the fact that Batman is working with a sidekick. But this show changed my opinion about Robin. Now, I think that Bruce needed Robin as much as Robin needed Bruce. Batman is one of the darkest characters of DC, “all about rage and violence.” Robin became the “echo chamber for Bruce's pain.” He saved Batman from slipping! That's what this show portrayed. 'Titans' is the show where DC showed who they truly are! In fact, with it, they touched a whole new level of darkness and it was a delight to feel it in each episode. The show has a gripping story, the acting couldn't be any better, and it has the right amount of thrill to make you say to yourself, “just one more episode.” What I absolutely loved about the show was how they so smoothly introduced the stories and struggles of side characters. In just eleven episodes they covered so many stories in a very neat way. Be it the birth of Hawk and Dove, or the comparison of the upbringing of Wonder Girl with Robin's, DC hit the perfect spot! “Wonder Woman was born to protect the innocent. Batman was created to punish the guilty.” Ohh how perfectly they conveyed why Wonder Girl and Robin are the way they are! Raven was the one who had darkness inside her, literally, but still, somehow Robin came out to be the darkest character of all! Talking about Raven, Teagan Croft nailed the role. Anna Diop and Ryan Potter were amazing as Starfire and Beast Boy as well. I won't be touching their stories, might give away spoilers. But I can tell you this, as soon as you're done with this show, you would want their individual shows to be made. Not just theirs, but Hawk and Dove's as well. To sum it up, if I had to dedicate a famous line to this show, it would be – “It's getting dark, too dark to see. Feels like I'm knockin' on heaven's door!” And that's DC for you, people! Dark, too dark to see, still feels like heaven! P.S. For all the DC fans, there's a “rich” surprise for you in the last episode.
  5. The previously rumoured smart battery case by Apple is now officially a reality and Apple launched it quietly on its website today. The Smart Battery Case works only with the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR and can extend the battery life to as much as 39 hours of talk time on the XR with 21 hours of internet use. The cool thing about the new smart case is that it supports wireless charging as well which you don't need to plug it in with the charging cable. © MensXP The new Smart Battery Case is compatible with Qi-certified chargers, enabling users to wirelessly charge iPhone and the battery case separately or simultaneously, and can also charge via Lightning cable or fast charge with USB-PD compatible chargers. The Smart battery case is also integrated with iOS meaning you will be able to see the case's battery status on the lock screen and even in the notification center. The case is available in two colours i,e, black and white and will cost $129. As of now, it's not certain how much it will cost in India however we should soon see it at official Apple retailers. © Apple Apple has not sold a Smart Battery Case for the iPhone since the company introduced iPhone 7 and it probably had to do with wireless charging on future iPhones. The new smart case follows the same design as previous battery cases that have the noticeable hump at the back. Even though it looks visually appealing, personally we would have preferred a design that would be uniform and would use the entire length of the case.
  6. One of the most annoying things about travelling is lugging around your suitcases at Airports. You need to carry it everywhere with you and sometimes, it's a major cause for fatigue. However, now this could become a thing of the past, as this new 'smart suitcase' is designed to follow you and can also avoid collisions with obstacles on its own accord. © Ovis The smart suitcase is made by a Chinese company called ForwardX and is known as Ovis. It was unveiled last year at CES and has come back to the show with some major improvements. It uses an array of sensors that allow it to follow or stay by the side of its owner. These sensors also aid the suitcase in avoiding collisions with obstacles or other people. It works using Artificial Intelligence to ensure that the suitcase is never left behind too far. You even switch to the manual mode in case you need to take it through security, escalators and stairs. © Ovis The suitcase even has GPS tracking embedded, so that owners can track Ovis if misplaced. Ovis is also approved by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) which makes it easier for travellers to use on flights, however, it still depends on various airlines whether they allow it on their aircraft or not. In the event of losing the suitcase, the Ovis comes with a smart wristband that vibrates when your luggage is more than 2m away. That's a neat feature that comes in handy, as there can be instances where the smart suitcase could fall or when it runs out of battery. The suitcase is expected to be available in the first half of 2019 with a retail price of $799 (Rs 56,420).
  7. In December 2009, when James Cameron's 'Avatar' hit theatres, it smashed all previous grossing records. Till date, this science-fiction holds the record for being the world's highest grossing movie of all time. The film took 15 years for completion and also made James Cameron one of the greatest film-makers of all time. © Lightstorm Entertainment The director had once told Discovery that he sat down in 1995 to write a film that would push the CG art! And so it did. 'Avatar' redefined modern film-making and set benchmarks for world cinema. It gave the audience a completely new perspective about the modern-day filmography. © Lightstorm Entertainment Years later, when moviegoers have got their hands onto the IMAX and 5D experience of movie viewing, all they crave for is newness with every single film they watch. In times, when we have got the best from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and especially when fans have gotten deeply used to watching the next versions of their superheroes with every passing year, what should one expect from James Cameron's upcoming 'Avatar 2'? Almost a decade later, are fans still waiting for the film's sequel? Read below to understand more. Well, let us tell you that James Cameron's team is working day and night to bring the unseen from the world of Pandora on the silver screen back again. The franchise makers are taking their time as they have plans to make 'Avatar 2' a much grander experience than its previous instalment. The maestro recently dropped a major announcement saying that actors have wrapped up their shoot for the upcoming sequels i.e 'Avatar 2' and 'Avatar 3'. The cast of these sequels include actors Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney, Stephen Lang, Joel David Moore, Dileep Rao, Matt Gerald, and Sigourney Weaver. Academy Award winner Kate Winslet is the newest addition to the cast. Though we were only expecting 'Avatar 2' to be under production, the announcement of the third part of the film happened to be a complete surprise. The principal photography of these two films has been completed; the actors have been working over the same for the past two years. Now, the toughest part of the production process has just begun for James Cameron's team. For the same, the director will now sit with experts to look after the CGI and other technical aspects. © YouTube/Discovery The stakes are already too high on these sequels and the production team would not leave any stones unturned, considering the previous records set by the film. 20th Century Fox and Lightstorm have already announced the release dates of the two films. 'Avatar 2' will be releasing on December 18, 2020, whereas 'Avatar 3' will hit the theatres on December 17, 2021. That's not all to it! Academy Award winner Kate Winslet, who has worked earlier with James Cameron in his iconic film 'Titanic', did a very tough training for a few scenes in the film. © Pinterest Free-diver Kirk Krach (a world champion) was hired as an underwater instructor by the film's team. From him, Kate Winslet learned to hold her breath underwater and nailed it by holding it for more than seven minutes. Apparently, the actress visibly turned blue! That's so Pandoran! Now, this is a sure shot reason why one must look forward to the film's sequels. It is time to sit back, wait for the film and thank the director for finally giving wings to 'Avatar 2' and 'Avatar 3'. It is better late than never!
  8. We love hip hop-rap God Aditya Prateek Singh Sisodia aka Badshah for his music, his dance floor breaking lyrics, his groovy videos and his sense of style. He's spiffy, cool and a true sneaker-head. You've got to admire Badshah for keeping it casual and laid back and still making it to the list of the best-dressed men this year. A fashion fanatic, his love for Balenciaga and distinctly cool sneakers are visible on his Instagram. To top it all, his fashion game is second to none in the industry right now. So, here are the ten times Badshah was on point with his fashion game: 1. No one can pull off a puffy wind-sheeter and white-rimmed sunglasses like Badshah.

Learn from Badshah. View this post on Instagram A post shared by BADSHAH (@badboyshah) on May 6, 2018 at 7:58am PDT 8. A glossy bomber jacket is all you need sometimes to hit the party.

  9. It is quite normal for anyone buying a new phone, or to be precise, a new iPhone, to expect a slight bump in battery life when compared to the previous offering. The new iPhone XS and XS Max have a 2658mAh and 3174mAh battery respectively and are powered by Apple's latest A12 Bionic processor. But according to a test run by Tom's Guide, the new iPhones have fared worse than last year's iPhone X. The test involved using the two phones continuously over a 4G LTE connection until they completely dried out. Both the phone's display was set at 150 nits and auto-brightness and TrueTone were also disabled. © iFixit The iPhone XS was able to last 9 hours and 41 minutes during the test, whereas the iPhone XS Max lasted 10 hours and 38 minutes. In comparison, the iPhone X lasted 10 hours and 49 minutes. And while we are comparing iPhones, the Android world is quite ahead. The Samsung Galaxy Note9 has a 4000mAh battery and delivered a runtime of 11 hours 26 minutes, the Google Pixel 2XL lasted 12 hours and 9 minutes while the Huawei P20 Pro lasted 14 hours and 13 minutes. © iFixit While the endurance test followed here can be marked as "circumstantial", Apple says that the usage of the phone varies from person to person and the company claims the iPhone XS can last up to 12 hours during internet use, while the iPhone XS Max lasts up to 13 hours. A recent teardown of the new iPhone XS and XS Max revealed that Apple has redesigned the battery, and the XS now has a single-cell L-shaped battery - instead of a 2-cell battery in the original iPhone X. The iPhone XS Max continues with a dual-cell arrangement. © Apple According to Apple's tests, the iPhone XR offers the longest battery life of this year's iPhone lineup and improves upon the iPhone 8 Plus by up to 90 minutes. It's got less capacity than the XS Max but has to power a much smaller low-resolution LCD panel. Are you fine with paying more, as well as receiving a lower battery run time? Let us know in the comments section! Source: Tom's Guide
  10. Unlike any country in the world, the population in India is a somewhat balanced mix of different kind of people. There are some who are privileged enough and can enjoy a weekend getaway whenever they feel like it and indulge in luxuries, while there are some who make the most of it with jugaad. We Indians are the synonym of 'jugaadu', as we simply have a way to fix every problem. And recently, business tycoon Anand Mahindra took to his Twitter sharing the glimpse of this fact. He shared a video where a man can be seen under a shower. Wonder what's so great about it? Read on. The man constructed the shower using a water bottle with multiple holes at the bottom, quite similar to that of a showerhead. He wrote, “And as some of us look forward to a comfortable Sunday shower, let's salute the ingenuity of others; Let's salute those who enhance the quality of their lives in a frugal manner by recycling objects the rest of the world discards.” And as some of us look forward to a comfortable Sunday shower, let's salute the ingenuity of others; Let's salute those who enhance the quality of their lives in a frugal manner by recycling objects the rest of the world discards.. pic.twitter.com/s5bFgXjTch — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) September 9, 2018 What followed later was a string of pictures shared by users, depicting how Indians across the country have done something or the other to make the best out of a not-so-best situation.

These tweets do encourage their innovation, but it also puts us in a fix and makes us wonder when will the standard of living in India improve? For how long people will have to keep making jugaads?
  11. The September 12 Apple event is just around the corner and the internet is filled with numerous leaks and reports. This time, Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones, one of them will be the 'iPhone XC'. This time, the company is trying to target three iPhones, each at a different price segment. SlashLeaks has shared images of the reported iPhone XC and it is expected to launch in Red, Blue, White, and Rose Gold. The blue colour will be making a comeback straight after 2103's iPhone 5C. The other two devices, the iPhone XS and XS Max are expected to launch in the usual three colours. © SlashLeaks Coming back to the iPhone XC, the device shall sport a 6.1-inch LCD display, a huge jump from the iPhone 8' 4.7-inch and iPhone 8 Plus' 5.5-inches. In the last few years, we've seen a majority of the Android devices sport a 5.0-inch or larger panel, and this has pretty much become a standard for flagships now. The most interesting thing about the iPhone XC though is the support for two SIM cards (or dual SIM as we generally call it). Adding to that, it is expected to support dual 4G support, meaning you can use two 4G connections simultaneously. This is a very basic functionality that has become pretty common in the Android world, finally, iPhone users too will have it. iPhone Xc (6.1” LCD) clones/dummy models in new colors. pic.twitter.com/RybRhE7XSO — Ben Geskin (@VenyaGeskin1) September 6, 2018 Analyst Ming-Ching Kuo, known for pretty accurate predictions regarding Apple devices, had even predicted that the bigger iPhone XS Max will come with dual-SIM support too. The phones will be made available in single-SIM and dual-SIM variants, depending on market and region. © SlashLeaks The iPhone XC is being termed the 'cheaper' iPhone variant right now, though, in the Apple ecosystem, cheap isn't really that cheap. To cut corners, the phone is expected to have an aluminium build, instead of steel. On the bright side, all the three models are expected to sport a notch along with Apple's Face ID authentication system. A quick recap of what we know so far, the trio is sure to run on Apple's latest A12 processor. The iPhone XC is alleged to have a 6.1-inch LCD panel, the iPhone XS is expected to have a 5.8-inch OLED panel, and lastly, the XS Max may have a 6.5-inch OLED panel. Source: Ben Geskin
  12. Arguably one of the most popular and consistent batsmen in the world, Virat Kohli's artistry with the willow was once again in full display as he orchestrated India's emphatic 203-run win over England at Trent Bridge which saw his side make a resounding comeback in the five-match Test series. The right-hander slammed a gritty 97 in the first innings and followed it up with a brilliant hundred in the second. Having scored 200 runs over the course of two innings, Kohli undeniably led from the front for India and was, thereon, rightly adjudged the 'Man of the Match' in the 3rd Test. © Reuters Thanks to his Herculean effort, Kohli moved back to the No. 1 spot of ICC Test Rankings for batsmen, dethroning Australia's Steve Smith in the process. Two weeks ago, the Indian skipper - owing to a hard-fought 149 in a losing cause at Edgbaston - had claimed the numero uno spot for the first time in his Test career. But, the mediocre scores of 23 and 17 in India's debacle at Lord's saw him losing the top spot to Smith. However, a fine showing at Trent Bridge proved good enough for Kohli to take his No. 1 spot back from the Australian. The delhi lad has now amassed a career-best 937 rating points and he's only one point shy of breaking into the list of top 10 batsmen in Test rankings history. Sir Donald Bradman is currently leading the elite list, having achieved a rating of 961 points in February, 1948. He is followed by Smith (947), Len Hutton (945), Jack Hobbs and Ricky Ponting (both on 942), Peter May (941), and Gary Sobers, Clyde Walcott, Viv Richards and Kumar Sangakkara (all on 938 points) in the list. © Reuters While it might take Kohli some time to overtake Bradman in that list, but the Indian skipper has already gone past the great Australian in another feat. In another personal triumph at Trent Bridge, Kohli has become the first captain to score 200 or more runs in a winning cause on seven different occasions - better than Bradman and Ponting who had achieved the feat six times apiece. After making a sensational comeback in the series, India will hope that Kohli and his teammates carry their fine form to Southampton where they'll lock horns with England in the fourth Test, slated to begin from 30th August at the Rose Bowl Cricket ground.
  13. When all of Bollywood is trying to win at style, Ayushmann Khurrana sits in the comfort of his bed, with the trophy by his bed side. His sartorial decisions have a league of their own, all thanks to a knack for picking dope pieces every day, cc: his stylist Isha Bhansali. His willingness to try new things, experiment like he's talking and bringing his A-game onto the forefront, have been his life-constants for a while. And while we're citing this fact about him, let's also mention, that he's one of the front-runners of wearing apparel-hybrids in public. Once again, at a recent press conference, the actor gave a splendid example of his fly-ness at fashion. While topping a knit over a crispy white, layering it up with a Pawan Sachdeva jacket, black bottoms and a pair of FILA Disruptor shoes; the guy pulled out all stops with his ensemble here. The highlight for us, however, were his lug-soled white sneakers: © Instagram/Ayushmann Khurrana For #1, it's hard to ignore, that the shape of the shoe is a FILA-classic. As a matter of fact, the Disruptor style is also a represent of a 90s revival, all while being supremely comfortable and light on the feet. It features a moulded rubberised outsole, an embossed/embroidered logo and a unique eyebrow detailing on the sides. © FILA India The pair is completely manufactured out of a synthetic leather upper, textile lining and well, let's just say — looks like quite the winner for channeling some dope street style. It won't be weird to mention, that the pair is another symbol of the trend of clunky, gigantic kicks, that's been taking the sneaker-world by storm nowadays. © Instagram/Ayushmann Khurrana Having said that, fortunately, the FILA Disruptors aren't the most expensive out there either. Easily available at VegNonVeg and Superkicks, they retail at a price of Rs. 6,999 (which is honestly, quite a steal). If you're looking to drop your cash on a versatile pair, that also scores high on the charts, let's call this an end to your search.
