  1. A couple of years back, a relatively unknown – at least in the Indian subcontinent – Hasan Minhaj furthered the politician-comedian parentification (don't look up the dictionary; the meme below explains the meaning of this word better) through his White House correspondents' dinner address. He took digs at the bigotry of Donald Trump & Co, but that didn't make much of an impact in India because, of course, we're stuck in deep shit of our own. © 9gag Over the course of this weekend though, the American comedian of Indian origin finally turned towards the subcontinent in an outright courageous, half-an-hour long episode about the upcoming Indian general assembly elections, on the second season of his Netflix original 'Patriot Act'. And since it touched a lot of nerves, India is kinda…umm abuzz. “Since [Narendra] Modi came to power, India has grown more hostile to minority groups. There's been a resurgence in religious nationalism, specifically Hindu nationalism, the idea that India is a Hindu nation,” opens the monologue. Ha! How dare? A bunch of trolls on my Twitter, and some of you reading this on MensXP (judging by the quality – or the lack of thereof, of a lot of comments on our Facebook page), would disagree. But the bad news for you guys is that he backs it up with solid facts (not Whatsapp forwards and 4Chan theories) to tell you how almost 300 people have been physically assaulted (including the 50 killed) in cow-related violence in India. But I don't expect this lot to understand, let alone be empathetic. After all, I was called a 'cow-eater' just last week on a metro ride to work, because I had put on a kurta (serious offence in this day and age of pigeonholed points of view). So Hasan's Pakistani (then Qatar and then Iran) spy joke hits home instantly. Me reading the comments on the latest episode. https://t.co/dSUYanFAuD pic.twitter.com/btFPPyvoE4 — Hasan Minhaj (@hasanminhaj) March 18, 2019 That's not the only talking point from the episode. An unflinching Minhaj goes on to poke fun at the Indian TV media community that is drawing the ire of international compatriots, especially for its role in the coverage of the recent Indo-Pak tensions. More TV anchors let out war cries than the concerned people and more TV studios were turned into battlefields than the actual ones. If truth be spoken, sane debates – both on air and off it, seem like a distant memory. Trust me, I'm an ex-Muslim man in the 'media business,' and get to physically interact with maybe more people than the average Indian bhakt. In his own style, Minhaj also interviews Indian National Congress' outspoken Member of Parliament, Shashi Tharoor for the episode (FYI, he failed to get a response from the Bharatiya Janata Party and, going by his Twitter handle, Chowkidar Narendra Modi, 'who is the first PM in the country to never hold a press conference'). The comedian goes on to revive the age-old joke of the direct proportionality between an Indian politician and the number of criminal charges against them. For crying out loud, he confronted Tharoor about his wife's murder during their interview. It's a real moment of pride when this is the actual state of Indian media at present. And finally, he also addresses the He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named of Indian politics, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) (yes, my name is Khan and I'm not a terrorist). Minhaj calls upon their problematic history and Narendra Modi's close ties with them, with reference to the rise of right-wing politics across the world in the recent past. Apart from Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adiyanath's 'Aap Ki Adalat' appearance with Rajat Sharma (another TV anchor with dicey political ties), former chief MS Golwalkar deciding to name his book 'A Bunch of Thoughts' also became the butt of his jokes. I didn't listen. #NowStreaming pic.twitter.com/7fnuDuaImW — Hasan Minhaj (@hasanminhaj) March 17, 2019 The Twitter troll army, surprisingly, did stay away from going all-out in harassing Minhaj (at least in the first 24 hours of the episode's release), despite him poking ample fun at Modiji & Co. That's, in some ways, a testimony to the narrative's middle-of-the-road approach, and in a lot of ways an unlikely masterclass for Indian TV media. Well, these were my bunch of thoughts on the show and how Minhaj's rational, hilarious, and neutral take on the Indian political climate, and the dire state of our TV 'journalism'. Without further spoilers, here is the entire episode; check it out.
  2. From patriarchal society to intersectional feminism, we are moving in the right direction. We have no right to treat anyone differently based on their gender. Women are as good as men, if not better. From homemakers to CEOs, they are proving their mettle in every field. Social causes like feminism have urged women to come out of their shell. Feminism isn't about what a woman 'should' do, it's about what a woman 'wants' to do. While some choose to stay at the house and make it a home, others choose to sit in a cabin and lead their company. And some, some choose to do both! Choice! That's what they should have. That is what everyone should have. These days, Indian women are making a choice to have a nuclear family. They're preferring to stay away from in-laws. While it must not be easy for the older generation to digest, let's see how it makes sense because of these two major reasons: · Interference The younger generation doesn't have any specific rules about 'it's a man's job'and 'it's a woman's job.' They live life in their own comforting way and do things at their own convenience and pace. The older generation, however, doesn't understand this concept. Most men don't work in the kitchen before marriage. Post marriage, when a mom sees her son making dinner after coming from the office, she is bound to assume that his wife is making him do this. It won't cross her mind that maybe her son is happily doing it. Modern men have come out of gender-specific roles. They are more than okay with being a helping hand in every aspect of the marriage. But the older generation is not always too comfortable with it. They just assume that since their son had to change his lifestyle, he might not be happy with how things are. So they have a 'talk' with the wife which leads to unnecessary quarrels. Parents (both the sides) shouldn't interfere in a marriage unless they are asked. It's about time they stop 'assuming' things just because their children have changed their lifestyle. · Freedom When a woman is at her home, she can sleep anytime, wake up any time, laze around all day, and do just nothing. The same thing continues (if) she moves in with her boyfriend. We, men, don't really care about any such stuff as long as both the partners are happy. But when after the marriage if the in-laws come to live with the couple, that freedom goes. No matter how cool the in-laws are, some discomfort and the pressure to 'behave' would always be there. Modern women don't understand sacrificing their freedom. And they aren't wrong. So they prefer to stay away. I am sure even a man won't be completely comfortable living with his in-laws. After marriage, these two things concern women the most. I am not blaming the older generation here. Because that is how they have seen the world. They were brought up in a gender-specific society. A society where each gender had to live in a certain way. But times are changing now. Gender doesn't really have a place is the modern relationship. It's all about comfort, compatibility, and love. And that is how it should be!
  3. 2018 was a tough year for West Indies batsman and former skipper Chris Gayle, especially when it came to becoming a part of his national team to represent his country in international matches and tournaments. Bad form, injuries and controversies infested the cricketer's career to the point that he wanted to say goodbye to the sport for good back then. What made him stay in touch with the athlete in himself were the league-level tournaments that are now being hosted by most of the top cricketing nations after the success of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Big Bash League, Pakistan Super League, Bangladesh Premier League, you name it and Gayle was there. However, 2019 brought the hitter some good fortune as the selectors decided to give him one more chance with the ODI series against the visiting England cricket team and another opportunity was all the self-proclaimed 'Universe Boss' was looking for. Playing on a superhuman level Gayle has scored 135, 50 and 162 runs in the first, second and fourth ODI matches against the Englishmen, not only becoming the first person in the history of international cricket to hit more than 500 sixes but also only the second West Indies cricketer to have more than 10,000 runs. What a record! ð³300 sixes and 10,000 ODI runs for the Universe Boss, Chris Gayle! ð´ð´ó §ó ¢ó ¥ó ®ó §ó ¿#MenInMaroon #ItsOurGame #ChrisGayle #GayleForce pic.twitter.com/aM3nDeduSa — Windies Cricket (@windiescricket) February 27, 2019 Even though Eoin Morgan's side is turning out to be way too much of a competition for the Windies, Gayle on his own, is reaching for the stars with his new-found form. Having publicly announced his decision to seek retirement after the ICC World Cup 2019, Gayle is now having second thoughts about his farewell. Overruling their own decision to part ways with the game they love isn't something new as players like Sachin Tendulkar and Shahid Afridi (obviously) have also done so in the past. And clearly, for somebody with Gayle's need to stay in the limelight, the thought of retirement has to be short-lived. "I just have to work on the body, and then maybe you can see a bit more Chris Gayle. Things change quickly,” Gayle said after losing a nail-biting fourth ODI against England. “Hopefully, the body can change in the next couple of months and we can see what happens. What's the matter with the body? I'm nearly 40. But could I un-retire? We'll see. We'll take it slowly." Never change, Universe Boss.
  4. On a Monday night Raw episode on 22nd October, Reigns dropped a bomb on his WWE fans when he opened up about having Leukemia, a form of blood cancer, and the fact that he was battling it for the past 11 years and how despite various measures his doctors and he took, the cancer had resurfaced. Reigns had announced that he would have to give up his title and go underground in order to completely focus on his illness and come back stronger. “I am coming back because I want to show all of you, the whole world… that when life throws a curveball at me… I will always swing for the fences,” the wrestler had said before walking away into darkness after he respectfully placed his championship belt on the centre of the ring. It was an emotional moment and even the toughest of wrestlers in Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins looked too overwhelmed to hold back their tears as they embraced their SHIELD teammate and sympathy and love. Reigns had also showed his appreciation for all those who cheered and prayed for his good health: 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 Now, last week we told you that Roman Reigns, the 'Big Dog' will make his first appearance on the WWE ever since he had to relinquish his WWE Universal Championship four months ago as WWE CEO Vince McMahon tweeted letting everyone know that the Samoan wrestler will officially return to the ring on Monday to give an update on his war against Leukemia. .@WWERomanReigns (aka Joe Anoa'i) will address the status of his fight with leukemia this Monday on Raw. #fighter #proud #classy pic.twitter.com/kgXD8SHwVc — Vince McMahon (@VinceMcMahon) February 21, 2019 And boy, did Roman Reigns make a comeback!

  5. Here's a little story of instant karma that will make anyone laugh, mainly because it looks like something straight out of a Bollywood movie. To sum it up, two robbers were trying to get away after stealing about Rs 40 lakh from an ATM in Noida but ended up falling off their bike. If that wasn't bad enough, the onlookers ended up stealing the money they just stole from the ATM. It all went down at around 1:30 pm, when the custodians from a cash refilling agency reached the State Bank of India ATM in Sector 82, under Noida's Phase 2 police station limits, to replenish the cash. Pretty normal, right? Nothing out of the ordinary. But, the problem started as soon as officials stepped out of the cash van as two guys got off their bike and opened fire. Then they managed to grab the bag which contained approximately Rs 40 lakh in cash and ran away. Till this point, everything seemed pretty serious but the fun part is coming up. A police spokesperson said, “While trying to get away, their speeding motorcycle collided with another vehicle and the robbers fell down. At this point, the bag filled with cash opened and hundreds of currency notes were scattered across the road.” And obviously, where there's money, there are people ready to try and grab what they can. A lot of onlookers picked up money and walked away, because what else are they going to do. Don't worry, the robbers' bad luck doesn't end there as they were also arrested. The spokesperson said, “The arrested accused has been identified as Nannhe, a native of adjoining Bulandshahr district, and a bag with Rs 19.65 lakh was seized from him.” So, what this means is that the people basically got away with taking about Rs 20 lakh cash. I have no words.
  6. Imagine you're on a date and everything's going well, by the end of it, you drop your date home. You lean in expecting a kiss but as you start to extend yourself in a half-hug, to your surprise they shrug away quickly with a pinched expression. You wonder what went wrong, and hope for a text later. But you never get that text. What went wrong? One of the possible reasons could be body odour. The thing is, a perfume or a deo can only protect you for so long. You need an organic and more permanent fix. Home made remedies fall in this category. Here are some of the home remedies that you could try: 1. Lavender Oil © Shutterstock Lavender stops the growth of the odor-causing bacteria. And the essence emanates a soft fragrance. Cornstarch and baking soda keep the skin dry, thereby preventing any accumulation of bacteria. You will need 10 drops of lavender essential oil along with 3 teaspoons of cornstarch and 2 teaspoons of baking soda. Mix the lavender oil with the cornstarch and baking soda and store the mixture in a dark place for a couple of days. Try applying this daily in order to see a prominent difference. 2. Apple Cider Vinegar © Shutterstock Apple cider vinegar has acidic properties that kill and prevent any kind of bacterial formation, which in turn, prevents foul body odour. Take some apple cider vinegar and directly apply to your underarms and other body parts using a cotton ball. Alternatively, in half a cup of ACV mix a cup of water and then use a deodorant. 3. Tea Bags © Shutterstock Tea bags have tannins present in the tea that keep the skin dry and prevent any sweat formation. Just bring the water to a boil and add the tea bags. Pour this tea into your regular bath and soak in it for 15-20 minutes. Repeat at least thrice a week to see effective results. 4. Lemon Drops © Shutterstock Lemon drops have ingrained acidic levels that lower the pH of our body, making it difficult for the bacteria to survive on our skin. Just cut the lemon into two halves and rub it directly on your underarms. Allow it to dry completely. Wash it off with lukewarm water. If you have sensitive skin, you can dilute lemon juice with a few drops of water and then apply it on the underarms. 5. Rose Water © Shutterstock Rose water is an astringent which reduces the size of the pores present on the skin, and this decreases sweat production. It additionally leaves behind a floral fragrance. Just mix rose water with apple cider vinegar. Store this mixture in a bottle and spray on your underarms and other body parts whenever required.
  7. Every year, monsoon hits Mumbai really hard and so do the truckload of memes that are made on traffic and roads. If you are living in Mumbai, then your friends must have (at some point) tagged you in memes where people are booking boats on Uber and Ola. Don't know about Ola, but Uber has made those memes come true by launching UberBoat. No, it's not what you think it is! Twitter Recently, in partnership with the Maharashtra Maritime Board, Uber launched its new speedboat service in Mumbai, which will connect Gateway of India to Elephanta Islands and Mandwa Jetty that connects Alibaug to Mumbai. Slow claps for all those who thought we were joking. Pixabay The UberBoat services were supposed to start from today i.e. February 1, but due to some technical errors Uber wrote on their official Twitter that their UberBoat pilot will not go online now. Due to unforeseen operational issues, the Uber Boat pilot in Mumbai will not go live tomorrow. Our teams are working hard to ensure that we launch the service on our platform as soon as possible. — Uber India (@Uber_India) January 31, 2019 The boat service will reportedly cover the existing ferry routes around the sea routes of Mumbai. The rides will be available in two variants - UberBOAT and BOAT XL. The first one will be a 6-8 seater speed boat that can be availed at Rs 5,700 and the second one will be a 10-seater boat priced at Rs 9,500. While the UberBoat is expected to make waterway commute convenient and more efficient for Mumbaikars, people on Twitter have multiple and hilarious thoughts about it. #uber #uberboat pic.twitter.com/F2cOFGzjDL — hemant morparia (@hemantmorparia) February 1, 2019 After cars, autos, @Uber to now offer boat rides. My #cartoon for @mid_day pic.twitter.com/onwoTrOqXi — MANJUL (@MANJULtoons) January 31, 2019 If you see this on @Uber, don't wonder if your driver has crashed his car into the sea because it's a #UberBOAT! Now in #Mumbai! @Uber_India @Uber_Mumbai pic.twitter.com/0y4bGrYP2I — Nirav Mistry (@niravmistry) January 30, 2019
  8. Diets, diets and DIETS! There are so many diets floating about that you can never seemingly make up your mind to stick to one. It gets tiring and moreover, frustrating to pick the best diet suitable for your goals. Keeping it simple, there isn't any such thing called the 'best diet'. Yup, one diet never fits all. However, there can be some diets that can have the opposite effect and ensure you never achieve your fitness goals. So, if weight loss is your target, then stay away from these three diets: 1. The Paleo Diet © Thinkstock The Paleo diet was popularized by an American nutritionist Loren Cordain. It tries to mimic what our palaeolithic ancestors ate and eliminates all types of modern human-made foods such as agricultural foods (grains, wheat, rice, pulses), dairy (cheese, milk, butter) and processed foods (KFC, Lays, McDonald's). It essentially consists of meat, fruits, nuts, and leafy vegetables. The basic idea is: Since our ancestors were lean, strong and active, consuming a diet which they ate will provide us with the same attributes. The problem? This is an extremely flawed assumption. Our ancestors were not lean and strong because of the food they ate, it was the time period on earth wherein if you didn't have those traits you would be dead. Also, our palaeolithic ancestors were spread across the earth and consumed a variety of foods depending on geographic location and availability. ' Thus following this expensive diet (nuts and red meat are expensive) is not going to speed up your muscle gain or fat loss process. And unless you do not enjoy eating these foods on a regular basis there's no need to follow this diet. 2. The GM Or General Motor Diet © Thinkstock If you think the name of this diet is stupid, then brace yourself for its even stupider protocol. The GM diet was developed by the employees of a vehicle manufacturer company, General Motors in 1985. The diet does not account for calories or macro/micro-nutrients but is broken up into seven days, each with strict rules about which food groups you can consume. Here is what this diet looks like: The diet doesn't specify the maximum or minimum amount of food to be consumed each day. Day One Eat only fruit — any kind except bananas. Day Two Eat only vegetables in raw or cooked form. Limit potatoes to breakfast only. Day Three Eat only fruits and vegetables of any kind except bananas and potatoes. Day Four Consume only bananas and milk. Day Five Eat two 10-ounce (284-gram) portions of beef, chicken or fish. In addition to the meat, you may only eat 6 whole tomatoes. Vegetarians may replace meat with either brown rice or cottage cheese. Day Six Eat two 10-ounce (284-gram) portions of beef, chicken or fish. Vegetarians may replace meat with either brown rice or cottage cheese. Increase your water intake by two glasses to flush out extra uric acid. Day Seven Eat only brown rice, fruits, fruit juice, and vegetables. Surprisingly, this diet is also recommended by some dumb Registered Dieticians. And here is the problem: except day six & seven, you are only consuming carbohydrates or fibre on the majority of days. For optimal functioning of the human body carbs are just optional (this does not mean they are bad!) but protein and fats are critical, and this diet severely lacks both. Following this diet may result in weight loss due to the huge caloric deficit that is bound to happen, but it will also cause plenty of muscle loss and will make you feel miserable. And once you come off it, a lot of weight will also be regained. 3. Boiled Food Diet + No Sugar & Salt Diets © YouTube This is the holy grail of every bro scientist gym trainer, you go to them asking how to lose fat in the fastest way possible, and they will recommend: "eat only boiled food and refrain from using sugar and salt". Well, in a way, this works because you will begin to hate food so much that you will stop consuming it and inevitably lose weight. Coming to the point: Science has proven numerous times that the body is not concerned with the source but the nutrients. And the fundamental process behind every diet is energy balance i.e. if you eat more than you burn, you will gain weight and if you eat less than you burn you will lose weight. Thus following a diet like this, which gets you fed up in a few days, is a pure waste of time and energy. You did not get overweight in a few days or weeks, therefore do not expect to get fit in a few days or weeks. Invest in a trainer which can design a training and nutrition plan that is feasible as well as enjoyable for you. All the best for your fitness goals in the coming year!
  9. When the two Khans of Bollywood unite, the internet goes into a frenzy. An old video of the 'bhais' in arms having a karaoke session has gone viral. Salman and Shah Rukh Khan are jamming on the classic number 'pyar humein kis mode pe le aaya' . View this post on Instagram Epic stuff! This video of @beingsalmankhan and @iamsrk jamming together is sure to make your day. A post shared by Filmfare (@filmfare) on Dec 27, 2018 at 8:26pm PST The 'Karan-Arjun' of B-town had hit a rock bottom when their relationship got patchy a decade ago. They avoided attending parties and functions where they could meet eye to eye and fans were pretty sad with this bromance getting over. © Colors However, seems like the love is real and is not lost after all, because a few years ago, they buried their hatchet and got together. SRK even made an appearance on 'Bigg Boss' which was like making it official that the Khans were back together. Salman recently made an appearance in 'Zero' for a song. Well, all's well that ends well and now we want to call our 'bhai' for a jamming session of our own.
  10. Ever since his appointment as captain, Virat Kohli, owing to his hard work and dedication to cricket, has been an example for his Team India mates. His leadership has allowed Indian cricket to scale new heights, while his artistry with the willow has impressed all. The Indian captain's focus on fitness, too, has inspired his teammates to step up their game in the gym. A brilliant batsman, great leader and a fitting role model for the youth; Kohli has checked all those boxes over the years. But, recently, far away from the cricket field, the Delhi cricketer showed everyone that he is also considerate and a good human being. In a touching gesture for his teammates, Kohli along with his wife Anushka Sharma - who are also celebrating their first wedding anniversary today - happily gave away their cosy business class seats to the Indian seamers during their trip from Adelaide to Perth. Witnessed @imVkohli & his wife give up their Business class seats to allow the Quicks more comfort & space on the trip from Adelaide - Perth !! Danger Australia .. Not only are the quicks more relaxed .. The Skipper is managing his troops with great human touches #AUSvIND — Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) December 11, 2018 Former England cricketer Michael Vaughan, who is also in Australia as a cricket pundit, revealed that both Kohli and Anushka produced the heartfelt gesture for the Indian pace battery to ensure they felt more comfort during their flight to Perth. "Witnessed @imVkohli & his wife give up their Business class seats to allow the Quicks more comfort & space on the trip from Adelaide - Perth !! Danger Australia. Not only are the quicks more relaxed. The Skipper is managing his troops with great human touches #AUSvIND," former England captain tweeted. © Reuters Earlier, during India's memorable 31-run triumph over Australia in Adelaide, Kohli added yet another feather to his cap. For a man who has witnessed a marauding run this year, Kohli couldn't do much with the willow as he managed to score just 3 & 34 across two innings. But, even if his bat couldn't breathe fire, Kohli, with his impeccable leadership skills, still clinched the unique feat of becoming the first-ever Asian captain to win a Test match in at least South Africa, England and Australia. Though there are still three more Tests to go Down Under and Australia, despite the absence of their stalwarts Steve Smith and David Warner, still pose threat to India, the Kohli brigade, for now, can bask in the glory of a brilliant team effort that has allowed them to take a crucial 1-0 lead in what promises to be an exciting series.
  11. This one time in mid-August, I woke up to a third day of what seemed like a never-ending downpour. Detesting the sight of gloom peeking through the sheer curtains in my room, I deliberated ditching the comfort of my bed, as the remnants of sleep continued to lull my mind. I was slowly drifting back to sleep, when the sound of a sizzling frying pan sought me out of sleep's convincing lullaby. The very next moment, the tantalising aroma of not-so-unknown spices tickled my senses. I lay wide awake on my bed, as the strong aroma filled every inch of my room, and my memories alike. © Thinkstock Images I was no longer in my rented flat, thousands of miles away from home. Somehow 'home' had found its way into the rented flat in a faraway city. My mother had come over to spend time with me, and in that moment she was the one eliciting the many scents of home, and my childhood. Breakfast followed soon after, Ma's special aloo'r dom and luchi (dum aloo and puri) - the perfect Sunday brekkie anyone could ever ask for! Every bite beckoned to the nostalgia of taste. Taste, that did a lot more than make me go “yummmm”, it evoked happy memories, and made my heart sing! And that's exactly what we're going to talk about today. The nostalgia of taste - the real reason why we'll never find a match to “ma ke haath ka khana” no matter what we try. If you don't understand what I mean by it, then consider this. © Thinkstock Images You visit home and get pampered with all your favourite dishes by your mom. Everything tastes heavenly, and each bite reminds you how badly you're going to miss this rajma chawal when your holiday gets over. But, it's not as if you've never had better rajma chawal away from home. Rather, you've tasted a better version plenty of times. Yet, nothing ever tasted anything like how your mother makes it. Not even an Indian Accent could pull it off. Know why? Because your mom's rajma chawal is more than the mere recipe itself. It is a reminder of all the good times that are attached to its taste. Perhaps, that day before your finals when you skipped lunch in a rush to revise your syllabus, and mom came along bearing a plateful of rajma chawal, which she fed you between your revisions. Another time your school friends dropped by during lunch...how all of you devoured this same rajma chawal together, and had one helluva time after. There may have been numerous other incidents such as these, and perhaps featuring many other mom-made dishes. © Thinkstock Images You see, it isn't as much to do with the food, as it is to do with the nostalgia it is capable of evoking. Your personal pool of happy memories. Research shows that happy memories associated to food has profound impact on us. Right from affecting how good we think food tastes, to how good it makes us feel, it's all connected. It's a lot like Proust's “little madeleine” effect - when a (food) product takes you back to happy childhood memories and fills your heart with joy, or at times leaves a bittersweet taste in your mouth. Thus, nostalgia becomes a yearning for yesterday and in this case, it's food that serves as the vector. A study by researcher Chelsea Reid found that “nostalgia can be evoked in different ways, but scents may be particularly likely to evoke nostalgia due to the strong link between scents and memory. The smell of pumpkin pie might bring all those holidays with family flooding back, or the smell of a familiar perfume might arouse memories with your partner”. © Thinkstock Images Similarly another 2015 study conducted by Jordan Troisi and his colleagues showed that people associate such “comfort” foods with close relationships or people who take care (or have taken care) of them. That's how the feeling of comfort (and happiness) gets attached to foods. That's the reason, no matter how many times I gobble up plates of dum aloo and puri in my city of work, or you devour mounds of rice with rajma prepared in the best commercial kitchens, it'll never match up to the magic your mother's cooking can sprinkle on your tastebuds. That's something which works beyond your palate, it thrives in your memories. Besides, the cup noodles can never be a match to the taste of your mom's khichdi on a sick day, can it? © Thinkstock Images Like Joydeep Gupta from Mumbai says, “nothing seems better than a cup of tea that tastes like home on a rainy afternoon. There isn't quite a better nostalgia to get to drenched in”. So here is to the many tastes that are powerful enough to transport you to better days, pull you out of the gloom, and propel you to take firmer strides towards a happy and calmer you, each bite at a time.
  12. Most men have a certain way of approaching a woman, wherever they see one and making a move on her. While I am not saying that's a bad thing at all, in fact that's great if they can get it just about right. All I am saying is, at times these endeavours fail and they only fail because men live under certain stereotypes and ego bubbles, which, let's be honest, have to be busted. I am not being preachy here or giving you a 101 on how to be a gentleman, I am just saying if you're going to approach someone you really like, you might just want to impress her, right? And that's absolutely fine! What counts is how you do it by breaking basic stereotypes while doing so. © Pinterest Women don't really have a 'type'. At least not at first. They genuinely need and want a man who can have some semblance of normalcy and a quantifiable way to approach them. Sometimes men have their own perception of approaching a woman. Yes, I agree perceptions are subjective but honestly in this case, they're just mere stereotypes which need to be broken. So, I am going to list 5 basic stereotypes or myths men have while they approach women and that's why they possibly get rejected. If you break them, you'll always find your way to her! (1)' Extra' Confidence Is Not Okay A lot of men think women like confident men. Of course women love confident men but overconfident men are a big no-no. I get the fact that you're a nervous wreck while approaching a woman but you need to keep in mind that you don't need to compensate for your nervousness with extra dosage of confidence. You just come out cocky and flamboyant, something women really don't enjoy. © 20th Television (2) Being Overtly Chivalrous Is A Turn Off While being chivalrous is great, going overboard with it is really not. Yes, hold the door open, offer to pay half the bill, hold the chair for her but don't get overtly chivalrous and forget your manners in the bargain, ironically. Like don't walk around her like you own her , to protect her from other men. She is very capable of doing that for herself and she doesn't need your help! Be a gentleman and that is all. © Lionsgate Television (3) Not All Women Like The 'Chase' Yes most women like being chased by men and men more often than not take it up as a challenge to get her. But a lot of women find these games childish and just like the straightforward approach. To be on the safer side, you should take the straightforward approach rather than chasing her because that can be misconstrued as being pushy or persuasive too, if the woman is not enjoying the so called 'chase'. You can approach her with whatever agenda you have in mind and just be forward about it. © YouTube (4) Corny Humour Gets You Nowhere Yup that's right. Humour is great. Sometimes that's the only thing that works. Sometimes you can look into the mirror and say yes at least I have a good sense of humour' but sometimes it just doesn't work if you're not funny! What I am trying to say is that if you humour is crass or corny then don't start with something funny. Be more sophisticated or cool because she rather walk away than spend the evening with a man who can't get over his fetish of '2k and lame' jokes. © Pinterest (5) Buying Her A Drink Is Questioning Consent While most of you debate this and disagree, I solely feel women today do not like a man to buy her a drink without letting her know or asking her that he is. Approaching a woman by showing her that you can buy something for her to make her happy is a little offensive, desperate and demeaning. You can approach her and start a conversation but doing anything without her consent is not alright. Of course asking her if she'd like a drink and if you can buy her one should be on your agenda, after you have her permission. © Pinterest Consent has become such an ambiguous concept today that unknowingly we cross some lines and disobey consent because it seems 'natural'. That's why it's okay to listen to women when they talk so you know what you're entitled to and what you're not. Most men think they're entitled to approach a woman while she's busy with her friends, entitled to her attention, entitled to persuade her to spend the evening with you, even if she doesn't want to. This supersedes the idea of consent and you're practically forcing her to do something she doesn't want to. It's very easy to break these stereotypes listed above, and practice safe consent, if you're approaching a woman at any place and I am sure, you'll have a great shot at doing so, thereon.
  13. It was high time that the #MeToo movement hit India and as we have learned recently, we can see how important it actually is. The time is literally up for all the sleazeballs, especially in Bollywood, and we've finally reached a point of no tolerance, which is incredible to see. No inappropriate behaviour will be excused now, nor will any kind of misconduct be brushed off and people will get what they deserve, whether it's justice or consequences for their actions, even if that action happened years ago. The best thing about so many powerful people getting exposed is now their behaviour – which they were getting away with a long time – is coming back to bite them in the ass, which is beautiful to see. No one wants to associate with such people who have been accused and it's a warning for everyone, that the time is really up for such people. Although @MumbaiFilmFest hs disassociated itslf frm directors&producer whose names have come out in #Metoo movement but I hope its chairperson #KiranRao remembers tht @aamir_khan her husband hmslf is working wth #subhashkapoor who's being prosecuted for sexual assault&molestation — Geetika Tyagi (@TyagiGeetika) October 9, 2018 Aamir Khan is obviously famous for being a perfectionist, so it's not a surprise that he believes in zero-tolerance for any kind of sexual misconduct. Recently, he walked out of a project after being informed of “sexual misconduct” on the part of a collaborator. In a statement, Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao explained his departure and how they are committed in making the industry a safe place. pic.twitter.com/NidpxviA95 — Aamir Khan (@aamir_khan) October 10, 2018 Taking a stand supporting the #MeToo movement, the statement said, “We believe that this is an opportunity for the film industry to introspect and take concrete steps towards change. For far too long, women have faced the brunt of sexual exploitation. It has to stop.” © Twitter The statement further read, “Two weeks ago, when traumatic #MeToo stories began emerging, it was brought to our attention that someone we were about to begin work with has been accused of sexual misconduct. Upon enquiry, we found that this particular case is sub-judice and that the legal process is in motion. So, without casting any aspersions on anyone involved in this case, and without coming to any conclusions about these specific allegations, we have decided to step away from this film. We do not want our action to reflect in any manner on the people involved in this case.” The person in question is Subhash Kapoor, who has been accused of molesting a woman, and the project being talked about is the Gulshan Kumar biopic 'Mogul', which is being directed by him. People obviously commended this step taken by Aamir Khan Productions because it's a crucial moment now for everyone to show their support for the #MeToo movement. So Aamir Khan Productions won't be producing Subhash Kapoor's Gulshan Kumar biopic. #MeToo https://t.co/IvbCx3WIwY — Rohit Khilnani (@rohitkhilnani) October 10, 2018 Thank you, indeed! This is COMMENDABLE and this is the kind of support we want so that more and more women can come out. Thank you @aamir_khan thank you #KiranRao #TimesUp #MeTooMovement https://t.co/dIDr88Mh9L — Geetika Tyagi (@TyagiGeetika) October 10, 2018 Everyone needs to stand up and speak out. THIS is what we need more of. The big guns from the industry to step up and stand for what's right. #MeTooâ â https://t.co/3q3cQABJZU — Raunak Kapoor (@RaunakRK) October 10, 2018 It's a great start. Finally, one of a handful of leading men in #Bollywood has spoken. He may not have called a spade.. well, a spade, but it's a start. #MeToo #India https://t.co/vKV2vIWvmb — Bindu Rai (@BinduRai) October 11, 2018 Bollywood, follow this great example. This. Aamir Khan who makes cinema w/ a conscience & speaks up when not many do, thank you & Kiran for your stance. One of the biggest stars of Indian cinema on MeToo. He even spoke when a journo asked the cast of ToH a question. Heroism can't just be on reel, thank you, Aamirð https://t.co/BnZWObjlAs — Mehr Tarar (@MehrTarar) October 11, 2018
  14. Charles Poliquin was one of the most iconic strength and conditioning coaches of all time. He was the master behind every known Olympic athlete and coach. Unfortunately, he passed away on 27th September, 2018 because of a sudden heart attack. If you are into strength and conditioning or even weight training in general, here is a little about him that you must know. © Twitter Charles Poliquin was born on March 5, 1961 in Ontario Canada. He earned a master's degree in Exercise Physiology. His training theories were introduced to the bodybuilding community in 1993 through his articles for Muscle Media magazine. He coined the phrase "the myth of discipline" to suggest that fitness results depend on how motivated a gym-goer is. As a columnist, he has written over 600 articles in numerous publications. Additionally, he is the author of eight books, many of which have been translated into 12 different languages. His major contributions to the strength and conditioning community are- Books • The Poliquin Principles • Arm Size And Strength • Ask Coach Poliquin (Volumes I and II), and others Coaches and athletes who've trained under him: 1. Ben Pakulski He's a part of the MI40 muscle intelligence gym, he himself is a pro bodybuilder and IFBB PRO CARD holder 2. Milos Sarcev IFBB pro champion, Contest Preparation and Physique Transformation Specialist 3. John Meadows Mountain Dog Diet Founder/Creator 4. Paul Carter Founder of Lift-Run-Bang, IFBB Pro trainer, strength coach 5. Keith Tkachuk Three time member of the U.S. Olympic Ice Hockey Team, 2 time 50 goal scorer. Olympic Silver medalist. 6. Al MacInnis Olympic Gold medalist 2002, winner of the Norris and Conn Smythe Trophies © Twitter Here are his top 5 approaches to building strength: Dumbbells Are A Better Choice The more you stick to what we were designed for as animals – lifting rocks, carrying carcasses, and generally just fighting against gravity – then the better off you are. What that means is using free weights over machines. One problem with machines is the fixed pattern of movement. For that same reason, he thinks dumbbells are a better choice for most exercises than barbells, particularly if you're dealing with an athletic population. Using free weight will force the body to recruit more muscle fibers, assist more supporting muscles to perform the task and also train the CNS. Want Great Abs? Then Do Your Squats! Isolating abdominal muscles as a strength workout has very little potential when compared to other muscle groups .Some of these guys can claim all these poundage used in ab training, but it's actually the PSOAs doing the work. If you truly isolate the abs, after six to eight weeks an athlete will plateau the rest of his life. The most coordinated athletes master the most difficult abdominal exercises in six to eight weeks. The only things that increase abdominal improvement for the longest period of time are squatting and dead lifting. Wear Weightlifting Shoes To lift maximal weights in the squat or any other exercise performed from a standing position, you need a have a solid base of support. Weightlifting shoes with their rigid design helps align the bones of the ankle and foot so that it's easier to keep the knees in proper alignment and thus apply force with the legs and stabilize the body. Perform The Most Effective Exercises First Perform the most-effective exercises early in the workout. Those that recruit the maximum amount of muscle fibers. A practical way to determine which exercises activate the most muscle fibers is by how much weight can be used in those exercises, obviously assuming proper form is respected. This means dips on V-bars will do far more for your triceps development that kick-backs or pull-downs. Protein Eat high-quality protein and fat at every meal. Favor foods that provide at least 10 grams of essential amino acids every time you eat. Apart from the above achievements, he also brought up the German volume training method. He is the one who stressed upon the importance of rest recovery and sleep. He also owns an institute for certifying trainers in the world on his name. But as they say legends never die. What he left behind as contribution to the modern fitness industry will always be remembered. Helius is one of Mumbai's most promising fitness professionals and part time kettle bell lecturer. His knowledge on nutrition and trainer soft skills management is well recognized. To know more about him CLICK HERE, and mail your queries about fitness to heliusd@hotmail.com.
  15. What's the one thing that is common between Ranveer Singh and Karan Johar? Well, both of them are amazingly successful in their own domains in Bollywood, but that is not what we are talking about here. Both of them are hardcore fashionistas and are absolutely fearless when it comes to their individual styles - which tbh, are rather conspicuous in their own right. Recently, this has become all the more eye-catching, thanks to their colourful shenanigans. Ranveer and KJo seem to be on their own individual fashion trips, and the thing that unites them is the free-spirited, wild usage of vibrant colours in their outfits. Karan recently went to Paris for the Paris Fashion Week, and was impressively, colourfully Gucci-ed up for his appearances. © Instagram Be it multicoloured panther bomber jackets to statement fluorescent pieces, he knows how to pull off risky pieces with charming, reckless abandon. © Instagram Ranveer wasn't far behind and wore equally explosive outfits in terms of colour. Be it his dazzling firework-inspired outfit by designer Lecoanet Hemant, or a suit in fluoro fuchsia, if anyone can keep up with KJo, it's him. © Instagram © Twitter Both of them clearly have an inexplicable affinity towards orange hoodies as well. © Instagram © Instagram We all could use some colour around, and want this colourful battle to continue, till Holi is actually around the corner.
  16. Life, as we know it today, is a constant hustle. We are perpetually chasing after the top scores, that next degree, upcoming placements, that promotion we have your eyes on, and then a bigger house, a better car, followed by an unceasing list of a bazillion other things. There's no one to blame here, it's human nature, and we happen to be alive and kicking in the 21st century. This generation thrives on material abundance and the “likes” it would fetch them when it is put on display. We live our life like there is no tomorrow, without even sparing a thought to the fact that the tomorrow we take so much for granted, might not be a reality of our lives. © Facebook The story of Ali Banat, an Australian millionaire with a lavish lifestyle and all the luxuries in the world, who decided to give away all his wealth to those in need, is a lesson for our generation to hit the pause button, take a second look at the life we are leading and reconsider where we are headed in the larger picture of things. All You Need To Know About Ali Banat You may not have heard of this name before, but he became an inspiration for an entire generation of men and women around the world. Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, Banat used to live in Greenacre in south-west Sydney and was known for living the good life. © Facebook He owned a successful security and electrical business and led a life that most of us can only aspire for. Life had been good until it struck him right in the gut. He was diagnosed with an aggressive form of stage-four mouth cancer and the doctor gave him just another seven months to live. However, his humble acceptance of his fate and the will to leave this world after having made an impact on people's lives, expanded his life by another three years. In the following months, post his diagnosis, Banat started to donate all of his prized possessions to people in need around the world. The High Life © Facebook Banat became famous when a video featuring him titled 'Gifted With Cancer' went viral on social media. In it, he speaks about how Cancer changed his perspective towards life and that he has finally come to see the meaning in every little thing that God has blessed us with. Watch the video here for more details: It is evident that his plush life was filled with many valuable commodities, from limited edition Louis Vuitton hats and shoes, to expensive designer accessories and a Ferrari Spider worth Rs. 4,30,92,000! Start Of A Journey Right after his diagnosis, Banat began to distribute all of his valuables amongst people in need. He said, “when you find out you're sick or you don't have much time to live, this is the last thing you want to chase. And that's how we should live our lives every day”. He believes that on the day of judgement, none of the wealth you acquire shall matter, and what will remain is the good you did for others and the difference you made to people's lives. © Facebook This belief marked the inception of the charity foundation he set up called 'Muslims Of The World' which aims to build villages for widows, mosques, schools that will house orphans, medical centres, as well as businesses to support the local community. The foundation has since earned donations worth over 1,041,438 dollars. He personally visited the African countries to ensure that 100 per cent of all the donations go to the projects the foundation takes up. Ever since, the foundation has helped numerous people across a number of countries including Togo, Ghana, and Burkina Faso. The Legacy He Left Behind © Facebook Earlier this year on 30th May 2018, Ali Banat succumbed to his Cancer and left this world for the heavenly abode, but his words and actions have touched a million hearts and inspired a generation of people across the globe to carry his legacy forward. © YouTube People from all around the world have since come together to donate money to his foundation and the good work he started, to ensure that his legacy lives on forever. Ali Banat showed us how we can make a difference in other's lives, even when we feel we're left with nothing in life. Take a look at his last words here:
  17. A security researcher has found a new bug that will effectively crash and restart any iOS device. Sabri Haddouche tweeted about the bug that is basically just 15 lines of code. The bug is not only limited to iOS devices as it can also freeze Safari on Mac when opening the link. Haddouche posted the bug on GitHub along with the source code that is basically a few lines of HTML and CSS. The bug was tested even on Windows 7 machines where users reported the Safari app freezing and crashing. However, the bug did not crash iPhones when rising the link using Chrome or Firefox browsers. How to force restart any iOS device with just CSS? ð£ Source: https://t.co/Ib6dBDUOhn IF YOU WANT TO TRY (DON'T BLAME ME IF YOU CLICK) : https://t.co/4Ql8uDYvY3 — Sabri (@pwnsdx) September 15, 2018 Why does it freeze iPhones, iPad and Safari? © MensXP Haddouche told TechCrunch “The code exploits a weakness in iOS' web rendering engine WebKit, which Apple mandates all apps and browsers use,” He explained that “nesting a ton of elements — such as "div" tags — inside a backdrop filter property in CSS, you can use up all of the device's resources and cause a kernel panic, which shuts down and restarts the operating system to prevent damage.” “Anything that renders HTML on iOS is affected,” Haddouche told TechCrunch, which basically means that iPhones, iPads and the Safari browser can get affected when someone sends the link via email, social media and as a text message. 9to5Mac goes further to explain that the bug basically overloads the WebKit renderer that leaves the system crippled.

  18. If you think you're surrounded by women or a woman who only gives a damn about your money, then you have yourself a gold digger, my friend. A gold digger is a loose term used for someone (mostly women) who have vested interests in dating you or being with you because all she wants is your money or for you to spend it on her. Sometimes it's tough to realise the presence of someone like this in your life but there are ways to identify a gold digger and completely cut them off from your life, because why would you let anyone use you? If you know someone who is a gold digger in someone else's life, it's time to warn them too. © YouTube If you suspect the woman in your life to be a gold digger, here are 5 ways to identify her and cut her off! (1) She Agrees With Almost Everything Gold diggers have an overtly agreeable attitude and they usually agree with anything you say to them or ask them to do. That's because they're people pleasers and will do anything to get you to spend your money on them. If you are with a girl who barely says no or stands her ground in order to please you, you know she has ulterior motives. This is a very common manipulative tactic used by a gold digger. (2) She Has Expensive Tastes Have you ever heard the saying 'cut your coat according to the cloth'? Well, that doesn't stand true for a gold digger and she'll always go beyond what she can afford because she has expensive tastes. If she's not in a high paying job and yet she likes to wear branded clothes and shoes and always expects you to buy her ridiculously expensive things, with no consideration for your wallet, then you know what you're in for. (3) Gifts Will Always Make Her Forgive You If she's angry with you, buy her a gift and she'll forget why she was angry with you in the first place. That's how gold diggers function. They're very materialistic and selfish and the only way you can pacify them is by mollycoddling their expensive tastes. Most problems in relationships should be sorted out by communicating with the other person and if gifts are the only way she calms down, then it's really not worth it. (4) She's Materialistic And Shallow That's a given right? If you're dating a gold digger, there's not much of an emotional connect you'll form with her. She won't remember important dates or events. She won't have a heart-to-heart ever and all she'll care about would be her materialistic possessions and her wants. It's like being with a hollow person devoid of emotions because she's not in love with you really. She's in love with your money! (5) She Uses *** As A Weapon She uses *** very strategically with you. By that, I mean if you do something wrong she will refuse to have *** with you, psyching you to believe that her way of getting back at you is neglecting you physically. If you do something right, like buy her an expensive present, she'll probably give you the best night of your life. She uses *** as a reward system and she's conditioning you to basically pay her for ***! Through gifts and money of course. So, if you see these signs, they're actually warning bells, my friend. Especially if the relationship is fairly new. Do yourself a solid and cut the person off, before you go bankrupt!
  19. Weddings are fun, only till the time your relatives don't grab your neck and start irritating you with comments like, "You're next" or "When are your wedding bells ringing?" We've all been there and I guess the awkwardness and silence that follows is universal. While it's easy to avoid the relatives, whose sole purpose in life is to see you get married; what will you do if the same hint is dropped by your girlfriend at a wedding? Throwing bouquet or 'kaleerein' towards bridesmaids is a common tradition at any wedding. In fact, it's said that woman who catches the bouquet will get married soon. While, it's considered to be a good sign for the woman, it's not quite the same for the guy (who has no intention of getting married anytime soon). © YouTube This man here, who goes by the name Daniel Gilbert, is internet's new-found hero who just gave courage to the millions of people around the world, by running for his life when he realised he might be the next in line to get married. © YouTube Gilbert was attending a wedding with his girlfriend Rachel Besley, who became the happiest guest at the wedding when she caught the bouquet. When Rachel was rejoicing, Gilbert's hilarious attempt was caught on camera where he was seen running towards the hills with a bottle in his hands. The couple were celebrating with newly-weds Chelsea and Matt Best, who tied the knot in Kettering, Northampton. We guess gone are the days of 'Runaway Bride', it's the era of 'Groomsmen running away' now. What will you do if you find yourself in a similar situation?

  20. When you think of tennis, the first person you think of is Roger Federer, he really is one of the best players ever and he has proved time and again that he really is the ultimate GOAT. I mean, just look at his career, that's one of the most spectacular things ever. Now, even he may have outdone himself with one incredible shot. Even his opponent couldn't believe his eyes, he didn't know what just happened. His US Open victory over Nick Kyrgios with the 'shot of the tournament' left even Nick claiming that it was “almost unreal” and it surely was. I'm not even a tennis fan and even I have to admit – what a shot! I mean, just look at this!

It normally only ever happens on a court of this size. I guess I deserved that, I went for it so it was good.' — George Bellshaw (@BellshawGeorge) September 1, 2018 Good game. Federer: "I enjoy playing against Nick, he comes up with different kinds of shot making, it keeps you on the edge, and it's entertaining for the opponent, also." #USOpen — Kelyn Soong (@KelynSoong) September 1, 2018 You thought? Federer: 'I'm very happy to have won in general. Five sets would have been fine too. I thought I played very well. The first set was definitely key.

  21. They say the best moments in life are caught within candid frames and we especially agree to it when it comes to catching our furry friends in action. If you have a pet at home or well for that matter, even if you don't have one of your own but you have met or seen one of your homie's ball of fluff, you would know how creatively funny these guys can be when they are left on their own. We have adored them at their best and clicked them at their funniest, which has only led to opening the gates of a laugh riot at family gatherings or better still, ended up as memes on your Whatsapp groups or social media handles. We know what a stellar and hilarious combination that can be and we thought what could be a better way of going through a Tuesday than with a quick break filled with funny pet memes that can help you whizz through the rest of the day in in a lighter mood. Well then, here goes nothin'. 1. *Rolls Eyes* © Imgur Tell us you haven't seen a similar expression on a gazillion other humans? Well, you can't because you have been witness to it as much as we have been. But when a dog pulls it off and that gets coupled with such an apt subtitle, I can almost hear a few girls doing that and we can't not ROFL over it. 2. Guilty As Charged © Imgur Well, that's not far from truth, you know? A lot of us are guilty of having tried the trick at least once at some point or the other and we can only imagine why this rant goes so perfectly with the expression. However, we can also think of a few other occasions when we'd get 'blessed' with this expression. Can you guys think of any? 3. You've Got The Pun © Imgur If you've got a knack for puns, this meme could be your spirit animal come to life in the digital space. For those who might not have got the joke, animal testing here means holds tests for animals to clear like the one that cat's attempting in the picture. Punny, right? 4. Down With The Dumb © Imgur That would be most of us on terribly hungover mornings when the brain just refuses to put 2+2 together! We've been there so we know the pain in the arse this situation can be and God forbid if that happens to be on a Monday. Wouldn't be the most ideal way to start the week, eh? 5. Erm...I Didn't Mean To Wake You © Imgur All the cat-men and cat-ladies reading this, tell us which criminal acts can bring you the death stare like this one from a cat? We simply can't imagine there to be a crime much worse than waking up a cat from its never-ending nap. On second thoughts, trying to dispose off an empty box of their liking could second that. 6. Not Friends With Water © Imgur This one can be true for dogs and cats alike, though even a few special homo sapiens might be guilty of not being on good terms with water. We know the struggle it is to get most of them to take a bath and clean their fluff but what's funny is we're way too familiar with this look after. 7. Ball Of Yarn? No! RIBBONS? YAS! © Imgur We know what a ball of yarn can do to even the most docile feline but apparently ribbons have the same effect of them. Who knew! But nonetheless that's good to know since now we won't have to go about unwinding all the havoc they whip up with a ball of yarn. 8. Poker Face © Imgur Well, nothing else could explain what a cat is doing at this table except of course that it was trying out its luck on last time before giving up, right? Something about this meme is awkwardly funny. 9. Calling Out The Party Pooper © Imgur What a timing! The meme is so on point and kind of goes really well with the entire image. Almost as if the cat moved near the boy to call him out for really spoiling the fun. 10. We've All Got That Friend © Imgur This one is all too relatable. We've all got that friend who loses their shit after downing a couple of drinks. Though the photographs make up for a lot of fun afterwards, but it can be a little difficult to handle at times. Funny and relatable much? We know.
  22. Arnold Schwarzenegger a name associated not only with bodybuilding but also to the field of acting and politics. Everyone has a journey, and so has Arnold. The journey for Arnold started from humble beginnings. On record, the earliest competition in which Arnold participated and won was the 1965 Jr. Mr. Europe. This competition was held in Steirer Hof Hotel in Graz, Austria. It was the first major competitive win which acted as a catalyst for his career. © YouTube At the time of the competition, Arnold was enlisted in the military as it was a requirement for all 18-year-old Austrian males. He had to work as a tank driver from October 1, 1965, to the end of September 1966, to fulfill his one-year military service. During this time Jr. Mr. Europe was also being held. Arnold knew that the military will never grant him an official leave for participating in this competition. Thus, he went AWOL from his military service basic training despite knowing the risks. After returning home victorious, instead of being appreciated for the achievement, Arnold had to spend a week in prison. © YouTube This was just the beginning of an incredible journey. In 1966 Arnold flew to London to compete in the NABBA Mr. Universe competition. He came in second in that competition, following Chester Yorton. One of the judges of the 1966 competition, Charles “Wag” Bennett saw the potential in Schwarzenegger and invited him to stay with his family. Bennett's concentration was on improving the muscle definition and size in Arnold's legs which was judged inferior to Yorton's resulting in the loss. © YouTube The training by Wag Bennett was successful and led Arnold to become the youngest ever Mr. Universe at the age of 20 in 1967. He went on to win the title three more times after that. Following the Mr. Universe title in 1967, Arnold received a call from Joe Weider who invited him to America to compete in IFBB Mr. Universe being held in Miami and later work with him in California. Arnold always dreamt of moving to the United States from age 10. His dream was finally realized in September 1968 at the age of 21. Arnold arrived in America with only one gym bag, $20 and little knowledge of the English language. By 1970, he had won the title of Mr. Universe, Mr. World and the Mr. Olympia title. The rest is Iron Paradise history. Yash Sharma is a former national level Football player, now a Strength Coach, Nutritionist and Natural Bodybuilder.

  23. Of all the things that the nation wants to know, one question that has perpetually occupied one of the topmost spots is: 'When is Bhai getting married?' Well, if you were to take his interviews as the source for a possible answer, good luck. But, rejoice, for something finally happened that will help his fans dig out a probable silver lining, that might just satiate a small part of what they have been looking forward to. Salman Khan just walked the ramp as the showstopper for Manish Malhotra, and we finally have seen a glimpse of what he'll look as a groom. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Salman wore a statement black Bandhgala that has been adorned with crystals along the neckline and the button-up area. Beautifully incorporated as part of a layered outfit in the truest sense, the black linen Bandhgala boasts of velvet borders along the cuffs, and a royal maroon piping. © Viral Bhayani The top piece has been paired with a black Pathani kurta pyjama, that is just the perfect accompaniment. The volume of the pyjamas is perfectly complementing Salman's broad frame. © Viral Bhayani When it comes to footwear, he has chosen to wear a super elegant pair of black shoes with golden tips, which is just the perfect melange of royalty and sophistication. © Viral Bhayani Salman's classy black overalls is perfectly complementing Katrina's shimmery cedar gorgeousness in all its glory. The silver crystal detailing in both of their outfits is legit 'wedding outfit goals', tbh. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Salman later took his Bandhgala off, revealing the black Pathani - which we feel is a perfect outfit, style and comfort-wise, for when the time comes to hit the dance floor. Talk about a functional outfit! © Viral Bhayani All we can say is this, classic Indian ethnic look suits him incredibly well, and he should experiment on these lines more often. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Well, at least now we know how he is probably going to look like a groom. Could he actually be considering it, though? We'll find out soon.
