  1. With the iPhone X, Apple completely ditched the home button in favour of gestures. The gesture navigation system was soon rolled out by multiple Android OEMs, even though Android doesn't natively support it. Currently, Android OS relies on three core navigation buttons: back button, home button and a recents tab. Google combined the home and recents buttons in Android 9 but kept the back button untouched. Though, this could change in the upcoming Android Q update. © YouTube According to a report by XDA Developers, Google is now planning to completely ditch the conventional Back button to opt for a gesture-based navigation system. And this is a good thing for all of us. Gestures are for sure the future of smartphone navigation, and with core support, the user experience will be drastically better. Google last year launched Android Pie with a new one-touch button and lots of gesture features. Though, the update let users switch back to the older method of navigation. © YouTube Even though a lot of Android phones have gesture navigation available as an option, it works due to the external skin or UI that the OEM has made. This isn't always as smooth and intuitive as native support. In comparison, Apple's navigation is extremely fluid due to deeper software integration. Swiping left on the screen will enable users to go back and swiping right will take users from their current app to the previous app in a card-like transition. Swifter animations are another major revamp that Google could bring with the update. © Google Google shall be announcing the next major update to Android at Google I/O developer conference, that is scheduled for 7 May. Google is also expected to launch a redesigned app info screen with “Material Theme”. There are also rumours that Google could finally bring a system-wide dark mode and even more detailed privacy controls. Google intends to make it easier for users to understand and determine the permissions they are giving to an app. Please keep in mind, these reports are based on early builds of Android Q, an official feature announcements is pending.
  2. TV actors in the Indian industry are not just about good acting or playing second fiddle to lead women in 'saas bahu' dramas anymore. With the evolution of content on Indian television, the quality of acting and the way our actors portray themselves have remarkably changed in the last few years. Rajat Tokas, who is best known as Prithiviraj Chauhan and is currently seen in 'Naagin 3', has undergone quite an unbelievable transformation in the recent times. © Instagram Yeah, that's the same guy, with a better body and even better acting skills now. While his fans have been wondering how did this happen, Rajat has managed to surprise everyone continuously when he became super ripped for his stint in 'Naagin 3'. View this post on Instagram It's so disappointing that after so much hardwork, there's different angles to make you look good or bad. A post shared by Rajat Tokas (@rajattokas19) on Sep 30, 2018 at 1:53am PDT View this post on Instagram A post shared by Rajat Tokas (@rajattokas19) on Oct 23, 2018 at 3:16am PDT Get it? How they hell he manages to work round the clock and maintain that crazy physique is beyond our understanding but the talented actor is not letting anything stop him now. Rajat recently shared a picture of his ripped self urging Marvel Studios to actually cast him as the next Wolverine and well, the man's got the abs to back it up as well. View this post on Instagram @marvelstudios all I need is one opportunity to prove myself. And trust me I won't disappoint. Never have, never will. Will literally live and breathe the character... A post shared by Rajat Tokas (@rajattokas19) on Feb 7, 2019 at 9:33pm PST Wonder what Hugh Jackman has got to say about Rajat being in his shoes! © Marvel Well, if the hunt is indeed on, we'd love to see our 'desi' Wolverine get some claws and nail the character.
  3. Unlike the first T20I match at Wellington, the Indian bowling side looked a lot more in control of the game as the important wickets of Tim Seifert and Colin Munro fell quickly. While the newbie went away on a caught-behind after hitting a four and a six, Munro was dismissed by a Rohit Sharma catch off Krunal Pandya. However, what is probably going to be the major point of discussion of the match is the questionable decision given out by the third Umpire, Shaun Haig when batsman Daryl Mitchell asked for a review on an LBW appeal. While the original decision given by the on-field umpire was against the Kiwi, upon review, it was seen that the ball edged the bat before touching Mitchell's pad. However, the Snickometer did not pick up any sound on the ball making a contact with the bat. Drama at Eden Park, Auckland! A lot of questions will be asked of the third umpire Shaun Haig, Hotspot and DRS. Daryl Mitchell must be gutted and confused at the same time. #NZvIND #INDvNZ #TeamIndia #DarylMitchell #KrunalPandya #DRS #Hotspot #T20I — Ameya Tilak (@ameyatilak) February 8, 2019 All these technologies and still can't figure out a clear inside edge. #indvnz #DarylMitchell — Ankit (@ankitchandram) February 8, 2019 This is what probably led to Haig calling a decision in favour of the on-field umpire's original call and gave Mitchell an 'out'. However, the fans, the Kiwi batsmen and even the Indian players seemed to be surprised with the third umpire's final say. Assembling at the centre of the Eden Park, everyone was asking another as to how exactly was the righty batter out. Daryl Mitchell could be seen literally begging in front of the Indian skipper Rohit Sharma and keeper MS Dhoni to advocate his case in front of the umpires and let him continue to bat. Although Sharma smiled at the hapless batsman, it was evidently clear that he wasn't going to help him as he was asked to leave the field. If a bowling team feels that the umpire's decision to send a batsman away was wrong, they have the right to call him back to the pitch. It is not just a rule on paper. It has been exercised by teams on a number of occasions with former skipper Dhoni himself calling back English batsman Ian Bell after getting him for a run-out on a legitimate confusion. So, in such a scenario, should Rohit Sharma have called Mitchell back?
  4. Monogamy, Polygamy and the rest. These are not math books but rather the nature and definition of modern relationships. Do not fret, if you have been out of this scene for a bit, we will help you get back on the horse. First, let's look at the reason people stop trusting relationships and the people in them. © Pinterest There are a plethora of reasons you may have chosen to remain single. The usual reasons are relationship drama, a bad break-up, divorce, someone cheating on you or some form of personal antisocial behaviour that has resulted in a tendency to stay away from the dating scene. ' If you, like many others, are also looking to get back in the game after being alone for some time, here are a few tips that can help you find your groove back: Send Memes Memes and online content sharing is now almost akin to social currency. Using platforms like Instagram regularly to find funny, romantic and entertaining content eases the tension of constant conversation. In the initial phases of any courtship, these provide a buffer when you're chatting on the gram but don't really have too much to say. © Pinterest Use Dating Apps Download a dating app and start there. The easiest thing about the new age of dating is, you know what they like (from their bio) and you know they like you! Build on that. Simple. The other major benefit of dating apps is that there is no dearth of possible matches. You may have to spend some money on their premium services but I bet most men would pay such nominal amounts if it increases their chances of meeting someone. © Pinterest Join A Fitness Class This point tends to show up in a lot of lists, simply because the value of confidence can never be overstated. Whether you are an intellectual, a scholar or a regular guy. Not exercising will tend to result in bad posture, poor cardio and less musculature i.e. leaving you with nothing that would impress a woman at first glance. Plus caring about your health is cool. The gym/class is also a great spot for meeting new people. © Twitter Plenty Of Fish There are literally 7.2 billion people on earth. Depending on your sexual preference there are about 3.6 billion possibilities. Go out of your comfort zone and flirt with people. Be nice, charming and approachable. Casting a wide net, keep the trophies and dump the rest back in the ocean. © Twitter Be Clear About Your Intentions I personally could tell you that 75% of the women I have ever met in my life have been cheated on/lied to by their men. 75% is also me being modest. Myself included. I have certainly lied to past lovers. Having had that done to me made me realize the importance of honesty. Most women deal with shitty boyfriends, husbands and exes. The common thread amongst all this is that guys tend to be less upfront with their intentions EARLY ON. Women respond to men who are confident and honest about their intentions. © Twitter To recap, dating is a numbers game. It is also kind of like hunting. Ever seen a tiger or a lion run frantically after ALL the buffaloes? No. Not really. They wait, they plan, then pounce. Dating is similar, identify your amoré and do what you can to win her over. If in case she does not wish to, and/or is playing too hard to get, move on. Life is short and no one is worth jumping through so many hoops for.
  5. Team India claimed victory against New Zealand in the ODI series by 4-1, after winning the 5th ODI by 35 runs. India's victory filled the stadium with cheers for the team and Shikhar Dhawan concluded the celebrations in the coolest way possible. If India's victory on Kiwi soil after 10 years wasn't great enough, Shikhar Dhawan's dance just made it more special for everyone present on the ground and those watching it on TV. Twitter/ Circle Of Cricket Dhawan, who was also the second highest scorer after Ambati Rayudu in the series, was walking on the ground after the post-match presentation when he suddenly stopped and started doing the Bhangra on the beats of Bharat Army's dhol. Twitter/ Circle Of Cricket When you have the dhol playing in the background, how can anyone stop themselves from showing off their bhangra skills. #NZvIND @SDhawan25 dancing to the tune of the Bharat Army Dhol in Wellington! ð¥ ðº#BharatArmy #COTI ð®ð³ pic.twitter.com/X5IaVEz9gp — The Bharat Army (@thebharatarmy) February 3, 2019 Well, all we can say is, 'Gabbar' is back.
  6. The world seems to be moving ahead on a ridiculously fast pace. Just last month, the world was going crazy over the 10 Year Challenge in which people used to compare their present self to what they used to be or how they used to look ten years ago. Eventually, the trend took over the Indian cricket team and made for an extremely loveable throwback comparing some of the greatest players like Virat Kohli, Prithvi Shaw, MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma to what they used to be 10 years ago. It was simple, interesting and brought a smile to your face, but sadly the internet has forgotten all about it and moved on as if it never existed. However, there is a new sheriff in town that has taken over the social media. The all-new '90s Kid Rumor' challenge expects the people on Twitter to write about all the rumours they heard and used to believe in when they were little kids. While some of the tweets are extremely nostalgic and bring back fond memories of the golden years, others are straight out random, weird and at times even unsettling speculations we had towards literally everything, which now make us realise what idiots we used to be back in the day! From the myths about collecting metal caps of the coke bottles in hopes of winning a reward to the risk of a watermelon plant growing in one tummy after swallowing watermelon seeds, the internet is bringing back the paranoia back. Nothing, not even the sporting world is being spared with the raging trend making its way to the top. Here are some of the most creative (or disturbing ones): Australian cricketers used to drink Kangaroo Blood before every match ð#90sKidsRumors — பதà¯à®®à®¸à¯à®°à¯ à®à®¾à®³à¯à®¯à®©à¯ (@Ramanimsd1) February 5, 2019 Undertakers has 9 life, he was killed by his Brother and comes back for Revenge. #90sKidsRumors — Sai Duck (@duck_sai) February 5, 2019 Ricky ponting had a spring in his bat #90sKidsRumors — Jai Kishan Sharma (@23jaikishan) February 5, 2019 Biggest rumor I was believing in my Childhood.....ð Ms Dhoni drinks 5 litres of milkð¥ daily ð#90sKidsRumors pic.twitter.com/jxrsh2TJiT — Naveen (@Naveen_0898) February 5, 2019 .@KaneWWE 's family died in a fire and his face is scarred beyond belief. #90sKidsRumors — Sean Hyams (@seanhyams) February 5, 2019 Dawood visited the Indian dressing room and Kapil Dev asked him to leave. #90sKidsRumors — Abhay (@AbhaySharma_1) February 5, 2019 .@KaneWWE face was burnt by @undertaker when they were growing up and that's why they kept on fighting each other. #90sKidsRumors — Rohan Raj (@ro4an_raj) February 5, 2019 This man is Undertaker's father & Wrestlers life is caged in this Cup #90sKidsRumors pic.twitter.com/P2NKtrzNes — Harshad Sharma (@SherESharma) February 5, 2019
  7. The legend is coming to an end! We are talking about the highly anticipated finale of 'Game of Thrones' Season 8 . The show started in April 2011 and is now nearing its end. Over the years, fans have speculated about various plots of the show. They came up with theories and possible spoilers about the show, especially after going through George R. R. Martin's books. Many of the fan theories have turned out to be true especially the one about Jon Snow coming back to life and the ice dragon. Fans are now coming up with new theories and possible explanations about Season 8. With every passing day, people are thinking deeply about the fate of their favourite characters. They are making predictions about their possible life or death scenarios. After going through a good number of fan theories, we have selected those that are completely intriguing. Let us tell you that these are just fan based contemplations which may or may not turn out to be true. Till we wait for the Season 8 premiere, let us take a look at these theories: 1. Bran Is The Night King Out of all the Stark kids, Bran Stark has got the ability to travel back in time. Ever since he fell down and lost his legs, he started getting these visions. However, to explain any relations between Bran Stark and the Night King is not that simple. Though he has got no ability to rewrite the past, by the end of season 7, we saw Bran's scattered visions taking shape. There can be a bad consequence of Bran staying in the past for a longer period of time. In fact, the Three-Eyed-Raven has time and again mentioned that if he stayed too long in the past, he will not be able to return. As per this theory, Bran travels back in time, when the Night King was created, by the children of the forest. It is being said that Bran has got too far in the past and was not able to make his way back to the present. He ultimately got trapped into the Night King's body. Moreover, the Night King's clothes resemble that of Bran if you take a close look. This could also be a possible explanation to why the Night King didn't kill Jon Snow when he could kill the Viserion so easily and rather kept gazing at him. A bit complicated theory may turn out to be true! 2. Ned Stark Is Alive What if we say that Ned Stark has been alive all this time? What if we tell you that 'Valar Morghulis', were his last words before he was beheaded? Sounds insane but a popular theory states that it was not Ned Stark who was murdered but one of the faceless man, Jaqen H'ghar (No One) created. Remember, how 'No One' taught Arya to become 'a girl with no name'? Also, in the final episode of the fifth season, while Jaqen H'ghar was standing behind Arya, she saw her face amongst one of the faces she pulls off the body on the floor, which indicates that a face of a living person can be worn by a dead one. Let us tell you that Jaqen H'ghar was also one of the occupants in the dark cells during the imprisonment of Ned Stark; he might have switched Ned's face with someone else. It could also be possible the Jaqen H'ghar is Ned Stark only. After all, he has looked after Arya so well. Till date fans have not settled for the fact that Ned Stark faced such a painful death. It would be the twist of the century if Ned Stark turns out to be alive, that's the only thing we would rather want after all the bloodshed! We want him back! 3. Arya Will Kill Cersei Via Jamie Since Season 1, fans have made many speculations about Cersei Lannister's death. Cersei and Jamie have seen it all – The death of their three children, the death of their father and the escape of their brother Tyrion Lannister. However, nothing could stop Cersei to ultimately get to the Iron Throne. After the death of Ned Stark, Arya's only motive has remained to take revenge and kill the people in her list. Arya is ultimately going to kill Cersei, else her reason to stay alive won't be justified. But how would that happen? Here comes a popular theory which states that Arya Stark would make her way to Cersei through her lover Jaime Lannister. Arya, being the 'No One' would use the impersonation of Jaime's face to kill the mad queen. Also, as per the 'Valonqar' theory, Cersei is destined to get killed at the hands of the 'Valonqar' which also means 'little brother' in Valyrian. However, if one looks ahead of this theory, it is Arya who would ultimately decide the fate of Cersei. 4. Jon Snow & Cersei Lannister's Marriage A new theory related to Season 8 claims that there could be a possibility of Jon Snow and Cersei Lannister's marriage. Cersei has a baby coming (the one from her twin brother Jaime Lannister) which would further bring her down in the eyes of her own people. Further, as people of Westeros disapprove of her as the rightful queen, she might think about saving her reputation by getting married to Jon Snow (King of the North). While Jon openly rejected to bow down in front of her, it may be possible that he would ultimately turn to Cersei for joining hands to defeat the army of the White Walkers. Thus, the two lead characters of the series might unite to save the North and the South. This may break the hearts of many fans, however, we believe if this theory turns up to be true, this might stop the Night King forever. Who knows how twisted this plot is going to be! 5. Jon Will Betray Daenerys Though we would never want this to happen, Jon Snow killing Daenerys Targaryen is one of the most favoured fan theories about Season 8. Daenerys Targaryen has remained the show's one of the most important characters and her invasion of the Westeros has been highly anticipated over all these years. Many fan theories have claimed that 'Game of Thrones' would end with the destruction of both Daenerys along with her dragons and the Night King and his army of the White Walkers; both are forces that have caused much havoc throughout the seven seasons. The true ending to the series would not be the one that would give us an ultimate climax where the good defeats the evil but the one on a much smaller note. It is the relationships between many characters that would unfold especially the one between Danny and Jon. Sacrifices will be made for the sake of the good, and one such sacrifice would be made by Snow. If the story of Azor Ahai and Nissa Nissa (as per George R. R. Martin's books) is going to be true, it is Jon Snow who will be putting a dagger across Danny. The final season might also showcase how Jon finally gets the knowledge from Bran's visions that would help him to sacrifice Daenerys in order to save the North and the South from the aftermath. An ending like this will be bittersweet!
  8. As if dealing with acne wasn't cumbersome in itself, 'bacne' a.k.a back acne is worse. via GIPHY Here's the thing, if you've dealt with acne as a kid, you're more likely to face body acne as an adult. There are obviously exceptions. The thing with body acne is that it's less accessible, more resilient and hard to tackle with. via GIPHY But that doesn't mean you let the acne stay. There are ways around it to nix the troublesome acne forever: 1. Wash Them With An Acne Cleanser © Shutterstock You ideally need to find a cleanser with a good formula that uses a combination of salicylic acid and glycolic to cleanse out the oil clogged pores. 2. Use A Scrub © Shutterstock A good scrub sloughs away the dead skin cells. Use a scrub to gently rub across your back to get rid of the acne. The scrub also helps rid the skin of residue. 3. You Could Also Add A Spot Treatment via GIPHY A cream essentially made to reduce pimples can similarly work extremely well. Just like you use a spot treatment cream to target the pimples on your face, you can also use it on the rest of your body for a similar result. 4. Take Good Care After Working Out via GIPHY Working out is great for your health but not for your skin, unfortunately. If you have a bad case of acne, it's best to take a bath right after you work out so that the sweat doesn't screw with your skin.
  9. Swearing by living life king size, Hardik Pandya's beliefs and ideology find expression in his brutal hitting in the middle order and brisk seam bowling. Ever since making his international debut in 2016, Pandya has established his reputation as one of the most effective allrounders in modern-day cricket. A vital cog in the Indian line-up, Pandya's exploits on the field also earned him comparisons with the great Kapil Dev, as many labelled him as the country's next big allrounder. But, for a cricketer who was busy rising through the ranks, Pandya came across his worst nightmare earlier this month when his demeanour on a popular chat show sparked nationwide outrage. There was a lot of backlash, filled with expletives, on social media. Fans and former cricketers all combined in slamming the youngster for his remarks on the chat show. Then, there was a suspension from the Board of Cricket for Control in India (BCCI) that forced him to return from Australia where his teammates were busy etching their name in the history books. © Instagram/hardikpandya93 Falling from grace, Pandya was disappointed, sad and alone. Pandya was cornered and left to face the demons on his own as he shut himself at home. While there is no doubt that it was Pandya's own doing, but, let's be honest, people have committed worse crimes (if his is one) than him. He's just 25 and his remarks, arguably, shouldn't overshadow his capabilities, especially after being punished enough. With his back against the wall, Pandya had a sigh of relief after the Indian cricket board ended his suspension and asked him to join the team in New Zealand. But, none really cared as Pandya's comments about women still echoed on the social media with the fans still not ready to move on from the controversy. Taking the field at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui, Pandya had a point to make. He seemed possessed to right his wrong, win back his fans and remind everyone how crucial he is for this Indian team. When you're pushed back against the wall, the only way is forward. And, that's exactly how Pandya saw his return to the Indian team in the 3rd ODI against New Zealand. © AP Unfazed by the criticism levelled against him, the Baroda cricketer delivered impressive figures of 2-45 in his bowling spell and choked the run flow during the middle overs. He bowled 37 dot balls, more than any of his teammates, and conceded just three boundaries as India romped their way to a seven-wicket win that also sealed the five-match series in their favour. If his bowling performance impressed everyone, Pandya's determination to make a strong return was also in full display in his fielding efforts during the game. In fact, the young gun helped his teammate Yuzvendra Chahal in getting a wicket on the back of a sensational catch. Hardik pandya come back super catch pic.twitter.com/Bl83rckpO8 — Kanai Kumar (@KanaiKumar9) January 28, 2019 In the 17th over of New Zealand's innings, skipper Kane Williamson chipped down the track to hit Chahal's delivery towards deep midwicket. While Williamson was looking to whip the ball off his pads through to the boundary ropes, an alert Pandya - who was fielding at midwicket - produced an acrobatic effort, diving to his left and pulling off an absolute blinder, to send the opposition captain packing. That was a fielder's wicket, absolutely stunning catch from Hardik Pandya. #NZvInd — Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) January 28, 2019 Though he didn't get a chance to showcase his power-hitting with the willow, Pandya, still, had his effect on the game - thanks to his majestic bowling and electric fielding. After enduring all the hate lately, Pandya, with a positive body language, looked determined to make the most of the opportunity and eager to contribute to his team's requirements.
  10. If I look back into time, I remember being a chronic alcoholic. Right from diabetes to thyroid and to high blood pressure, I had everything. Even low testosterone was a huge problem. The doctor told me if I don't change my lifestyle I will never be able to start a family. Sure, addiction to food is a real thing but let me tell you that addiction to alcohol will ruin your life. This is exactly what happened with me. This is how I came out of alcoholism and reclaimed my life back. How I Ate Before anything, let me make it very clear that diet is the first step. I counted my calories, keeping the protein high (150 -250 grams), low fat (50 Grams) and least carbs diet. I reefed myself to keep away from binge eating. What I realized are the rules that apply to staying sober and quitting alcoholism also fit perfectly with weight loss and clean diet. Cutting Alcohol Was A BIG Task Now I was pretty much sorted with my diet. Next step was something that would completely change my life—quitting alcohol. This was harrowing for me to start with. I used to drink regularly. Now I had to stop. But here again, I didn't take any leaps. I took one step at a time. It was tough but I didn't give up. So What Did I Learn? One Day At Time First Apply this motto - When you wake up in morning say this- I WILL FOLLOW MY DIET TODAY NO MATTER WHAT. Don't think about tomorrow or day after, do justice to your diet today. Take it one day at a time. These are certain things I fixed about myself. 1. Serenity Of The Mind Either you are quitting alcohol or trying to be disciplined with dieting in your life. The serenity of the mind is most important. If your mind is not at peace then you cannot concentrate on anything which includes having right meals. So if you want to lose weight or improve your health, then the most important thing is the serenity of your mind. 2. Hardcore Honesty First step is about understanding your problem areas. It can be alcohol or eating junk food. To identify this, you have to be completely honest about it. Don't lie to yourself. If you are fat, you are fat. My alcoholism was killing me but I would tell myself that I will quit it soon. This hardly ever happened though till the time I was warned. 3. Become Selfish If you are not selfish, then you stop caring about what is best for you. If you are selfish you consider your health, your life and your progress before anything else. If you are selfish about your body then you do what is best for it. Most importantly, be selfish about your serenity. How Far I Have Come After years of hard work, now I stand completely sober. I literally came out of the claws of death to becoming one of the hardest workers in the gym and in the kitchen too. To do this, I didn't look at any shortcuts. I believed in myself, ate a structured diet and worked an intelligent training program that was the best for me. If you are also going through addiction, trust me, the solution is right inside you. Find it before it's too late.
  11. The leopard print has an undeniably important niche in world fashion, and some would argue, that it's been overdone. In fact, memes like 'Guess who's the only one who can carry off the leopard print without looking stupid? A leopard' has been doing the rounds for the longest time. Some love it, some loathe its existence. Of late, designers all over have been trying to go a little easy on the print, unless they are into hardcore maximalism. No wonder we haven't had a lot of it in men's fashion for the longest time. However, who's the one person you'd trust to bring back a dead aesthetic, other than the quirky tiger of fashion himself? Ranveer Singh did not cut corners while reviving it, and went for it full on, just like one would expect him to. He wore a head-to-toe leopard print outfit at Umang 2019. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Designed by Varoin Marwah, this killer ensemble is fierceness personified. While the blazer and the pants encapsulate the smaller dots, the shirt is composed of the layered brown spots found on a full-grown leopard. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani There was no holding back on Ranveer's part even in terms of footwear or accessories. He went for a pair of gutsy gold boots, and statement eyewear that complements the feline aesthetic. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani There's no holding back this tiger. Keep roaring, Baba!
  12. Going seven years back in time, as an average IT professional, I was working from 9 to 6 in an MNC with a very limited focus on my fitness and eating habits. With a very lean body type – 60kg and short height (5'6) my appearance was tiny. I was constantly made fun of and that resulted in low self-esteem, confidence impacting my performance across all functions of life. Poor Eating Habits Staying away from home, I used to eat whatever was accessible to me with zero attention to what type of food I was consuming and what it will do to my body. With ample free time after office and during weekends, I decided to join a nearby gym with the goal to become big and at the same time socialize with fellow gym-goers. Change In Job Locations I slowly started to do light to moderate workouts following traditional coaches and their techniques. After not seeing any significant results after 6 months, I was fortunate enough to come across a trainer who focused on natural diet and using correct form. But, as it usually happens in the IT industry I received a better job offer from a company in Gurgaon and hence had to shift my base from Noida to Gurgaon. I restarted my workout but this time I was constantly pushed by my trainers to take supplements from whey proteins to creatine. First Encounter With Steroids & Kidney Issues For personal benefits, my coach even tried to persuade me to go for Dianabol as well. Though I completely ignored his advice of taking steroids, I started taking supplements like whey protein and BCAAs. After a few months, I noticed some changes in my body structure but also observed that my gut health started to suffer. I got constant issues of indigestion, bloating etc. I got a full body checkup done and found that my creatinine levels were very high. Most of the aspiring bodybuilders, aspirants neglect these small issues which are very critical for your overall health. Changing The Coach At this point, I immediately stopped taking advice from this coach and hired an online coach whose fitness methodology focused on 100% natural transformation. By this time, the fitness bug had bitten me and I started to read a lot of online material on fitness and nutrition to increase my knowledge and did my ISSA certification as well. Managing Kidney Issues Also, I decided to train my body in 100% natural way with zero help of supplements. As an immediate step, I reduced my protein intake from 210gm to 130gm which was appropriate for my body needs and my creatinine levels became normal. At this time, I faced a major confusion on growing muscle while digesting protein ineffectively. I began to eat a lot of protein derived from natural or readily available sources like Paneer, Tofu, Legumes and Milk. Self Education & Learning Gradually with more research and time spent on reading online fitness materials, I became aware of my body type, its needs and correct form/technique of doing exercises. I created my own workout plan focusing on more than one body part every day. This was combined with a carefully planned diet plan with optimal calories, macronutrients and micronutrients. With progressive overloading and following a strict yet completely natural diet plan, I gained good muscle mass over a period of time. Now for further refining my Fitness Knowledge and bringing the physique to a next level, I have decided to work with a coach named Rachit Bir from BIRa Fitness.
  13. When you have a physique like Tiger Shroff, you don't really need to put a lot of thought about what to wear. However, Tiger clearly doesn't believe in that and pulls off #OOTDs that are definitely Insta-worthy. He just gave us a glimpse of that with his latest outfit, which was deceptively simple but contained a piece that was 'statement' in the truest sense of the term. He wore a pair of bell-bottoms that were delightfully extra and reminded us of the huge bell-bottoms from the '70s. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani The super roomy pair is something you need guts of steel to carry off, simply because of the unusual (bordering on weird) silhouette they give rise to. © Viral Bhayani Tiger was sagaciously fashionable to have worn it with a navy blue fitted T-shirt of a similar shade, because going minimal on top is the only way one can carry it off without committing a fashion blunder. © Viral Bhayani The best thing about the look is that it's not over the top, but still makes a statement that's remarkably 'high-fashion'. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Maybe it's time to bring back the '70s to the mainstream fashion scene after all!
  14. Former South African captain, AB de Villiers is one of the most loved cricketers in the international scenario. His accomplishments as a batsman are unmatched and have helped him make a name for himself in every country that he has competed in. Last year, much to everyone's utter surprise, de Villiers made an out of the blue decision to retire from all formats of the sport on an international level, in a video he uploaded from his Twitter handle. I've made a big decision today pic.twitter.com/In0jyquPOK — AB de Villiers (@ABdeVilliers17) May 23, 2018 However, with the beginning of the New Year, de Villiers has decided to use his position in the cricketing world for a righteous cause. The South African has announced that he will be playing in the upcoming season four of the Pakistan Super League. Ever since the visiting Sri Lankan team's bus was attacked in Lahore in 2009, international level cricket has not taken place in the country due to safety concerns of the travelling players, with the exception of the Windies' visit for a three-game T20 series last year in April. In attempts to bring back international cricket to the country that worships the sport just as much as India, the Pakistan Cricket Board has been pushing for more and more PSL matches to be held inside the country rather than the UAE, where most of Pakistan's international level cricket competitions take place. De Villiers has decided to play in Pakistan, for the Lahore Qalandars, in the two matches that have been scheduled to take place at the Gaddafi stadium in Lahore on 9th and 10th March. A special message from our mentor and player @ABdeVilliers17 “Main Lahore A Raha Hun” ð¤©#DamaDamMast #MainHoonQalandar pic.twitter.com/Ye8j65Jwxl — Lahore Qalandars (@lahoreqalandars) January 14, 2019 "I felt that I had this opportunity to maybe make an impact to help international cricket return to Pakistan," de Villiers told BBC World Service's Stumped programme. “I was reluctant to go a few years back when we were all a bit worried, but I feel the time is right to go back there.” If things go as planned, de Villiers will probably be the greatest international player in the last 10 years to have played in Pakistan. "I sympathise with the people of Pakistan because they have been cricket-starved for no fault of theirs, but I am optimistic that the days are not too far when international cricket will return to Pakistan and the stadia will once again be packed with crowds," de Villiers said in an interview with ICC.
  15. Most transformation stories have this one element of getting bullied at some point of time. Easily, it is like a launch pad for most of the success stories. Tushar Agrawal's success story was also ignited by the same element. It was 2006 when Tushar had hit the gym for the very first time. He was a lanky guy with 45 kilos of body weight. Being underweight throughout his teens and early 20s, he became a bully magnet. Fed up of the never-ending bullying, Tushar decided to steer things around. He was in his 10th standard when he got introduced to weight training. In the hopes of beating up the bullies, he made weight training a staple in his life. 3 years into training hard and eating almost everything, he touched 65kg body weight. A rookie to nutrition, Tushar thought that adding whey supplements to his routine will get him jacked. The dream of getting big was real. He spent money but unsurprisingly, he didn't get jacked. He Did Steroids And Still Regrets It To This Day Tushar used to work out in a nearby gym under the guidance of a regular desi trainer. In 2009, one of the gym's uneducated trainers insinuated him to try steroids. Since he was desperate to get big, he followed through. What followed was an influx of unmonitored usage of oral and injectable steroids. To make the case worse, the usage continued for over 3 years, till 2012. As per Tushar, he used to do one cycle a year. No wonder, he got jacked and muscular. Though at 95 kilo body weight, Tushar's body fat percentage was still on the higher side as his coach knew nothing about nutrition. After prolonged usage, he started feeling that something was wrong with him. He could not figure out what it was since there were no physical side effects till then. Later he realized that it was his guilt of using way too much steroids. Though the drug usage made Tushar really strong and big, poor workout form gave him another shock. He was diagnosed with slip disc in L4-L5-S1 and C3-C4. 2012: A Doctor Friend Saved Him Apparently, one of his old friends, who happened to be a doctor, had returned from Canada around the same time. Tushar shared his ordeal with him and opened up about his steroid usage. He came through very clear that he was feeling depressed. The doctor advised him to stop using it and get a blood test done on priority. Being a medical professional he guided Tushar about the possible side effects of steroid usage. The blood tests, as expected, showed that most of his health markers were in a horrible position. The report was an alarming call! That was the time when he decided that he will never touch steroids in his life. 2018: He Achieved What He Never Expected For almost 15 years now, Tushar chased his dream physique but never was able to achieve it. After 2012, when we gave up using anabolics, he was looking for the best natural way to reach his goals. Finally, in 2018, he came across Team Aminder, an organization that practices and preaches drug-free bodybuilding, online. Ever since being cheated by the desi trainers, Tushar was skeptical in taking up online training. Things changed when he met his friend's wife, who had lost nearly 20 kilos of body fat training with Team Aminder. April 2018, Tushar decided to give a shot to Team Aminder. In 7.5 months from then, Tushar lost 21 kilos of fat and achieved a physique which seems unnatural to most. During these 7.5 months, Jaspreet, his personal coach, kept changing Tushar's diet and caloric intake and worked with him very closely. On achieving such physique today Tushar says, “There was a time when I myself used to think that naturally it is not possible but now that I have done it and that too without any supplement, I must say it is 100% possible. You just need a good coach who has the required knowledge.”
  16. After hogging the limelight for controversy and fighting with his co-stars, his reverse transformation and getting married to his long-time girlfriend, Ginni Chatrath; Kapil Sharma is finally back in business and making people fall from their chairs and rolling on the floor laughing. K9 Productions With a couple of fresh faces and fresher and more humourous content, Kapil Sharma shows how comebacks are done. In fact, the success of the premiere episode speaks volumes about how kickass the upcoming episodes are going to be. K9 Productions The first episode featured the team of 'Simmba' i.e. Sara Ali Khan, Rohit Shetty and Baba Ranveer Singh. When you bring Bollywood's livewire Ranveer Singh and Comedy King Kapil Sharma under the same roof, do we really have to mention how epic the episode was going to be? It's anything but obvious and that's exactly what happened. Fans couldn't control their laughter and excitement throughout the show, and soon started lauding Kapil Sharma and his new show on social media. #TheKapilSharmaShow yaad teri aayegi ðloved every moment of kapil sharma show @KapilFans @KapilSharmaK9 @SonyTV way to go guys .. thank you for awesome time .. you guys rock — rajan minocha (@rajanngp) December 29, 2018 What a comeback for @KapilSharmaK9 , Kapil Sharma show was amazing tonight, I'm crying from laughter.

However, everyone's favourite Gutthi aka Dr. Mashoor Gulati aka Sunil Grover is missing from the scene because of his new show, and it will be interesting to see who wins in the TRP race this time.
  17. Our personal experience taught us that an average Indian wedding celebration lasts anywhere between 3 and 4 days. But, Bollywood made us realise that we've been wrong all this time. If the latest trend of Bollywood weddings is anything to go by, then there is no end to the pre-wedding and post-wedding parties. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) on Nov 28, 2018 at 7:00am PST For instance, let's talk about Deepika and Ranveer aka DeepVeer ki Shaadi. The couple first had their pre-wedding mehendi and sangeet, followed by two weddings (one in Konkani style and one in Sindhi style) and after the second reception, we officially lost the count. View this post on Instagram â¤ï¸ A post shared by Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) on Nov 15, 2018 at 6:36am PST But, after Deepika's latest revelation, it looks like we will have to start counting once again. Deepika, who dated Ranveer for 6 years before tying the knot with him in Italy's Lake Como, recently revealed that she got engaged to Ranveer four years ago. Deepika dropped this bomb during an interview with Filmfare. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) on Dec 1, 2018 at 7:46am PST Seriously, guys! Why did you not throw a party back then? Why did you test Smriti Irani as well as our patience by making us wait for hours for your weddings pictures? On the work front, Ranveer is currently basking in the success of 'Simmba' and Deepika is gearing up for her upcoming project 'Chappak' that is based on the life of an acid attack survivor Laxmi Aggarwal.
  18. All Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma need to do is breathe to get trolled online, like that's it. The couple can never catch a break and with every new tweet, it's like they invite everyone to troll them. It's kind of sad but it's also hilarious and overall harmless, so it's okay. Maybe it all started with that 'Shame' tweet. Remember? Hashtag throwback. Whatever the case may be, they have always made their way through the fair share of trolling online. This time, all Virat had to do was praise his wife and her movie, and people latched onto that opportunity. View this post on Instagram My life. My universe. â¤â¤ Karvachauth â¤ð« A post shared by Virat Kohli (@virat.kohli) on Oct 27, 2018 at 10:24am PDT In case you didn't know, 'Zero' released this Friday and well, it turns out it really is zero because people didn't seem to like it that much. The movie will still do well, of course, because it's King Khan and a King Khan movie is never a box office flop. Looks like Virat had an unpopular opinion and took to Twitter to praise the movie and compliment Anushka on her performance, which he felt “was a very challenging role and she was outstanding”. Saw @Zero21Dec and loved the entertainment it brought. I enjoyed myself. Everyone played their parts well.

  19. Staying alone at home or away from parents is quite a common thing these days. But, back in the day when we were kids, even the thought of staying alone gave us the creeps. But, thanks to an 8-year-old kid named Kevin McCallister, the thought of staying alone gave us an adrenaline rush more than jitters. He was one of the first few kids who single-handedly dealt with burglars in the most badass way possible, especially in a time when there were pagers and landlines with terrible service in the name of technology. Yes, we're talking about Kevin McCallister from 'Home Alone' and what better time can there be than Christmas to talk about the movie. But, that's not why we're talking about him. © YouTube The reason is Macaulay Culkin, who is back in action and recreated some of the funny scenes from 'Home Alone' after 28 years for a Google ad. He relives the same experiences and shows us how it feels living alone in the company of Google Assistant. Thanks to the campaign, Macaulay relived his Kevin McCallister days in the most millennial way possible.
  20. Dorain Yates, on Joe Rogan's podcast, once said that the exercises to build muscle will never change. And every day, in the gym, hustling my way through iron, I find this as the supreme truth. That's exactly what the old school exercises gave us- thick and big muscles. Fancy new school exercises are well, yeah, just fancy to look at. The big compound moves will always be the cornerstone of the muscular development. One such old school giving is the dumbbell pullover. Lost in time, this exercise was once a staple in every meathead's upper body routine. Now, not many people do it. Why and how did the pullover become such a controversial exercise? Let's decipher. The Dumbbell Pullover © Pinterest Right through the 50s till the early 70s, the dumbbell pullover was a staple chest and back exercise. Reg Park, Sergio Olivia, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lou Feriggno and many other golden era kings advocated this exercise. The Disappearance Of The Pull-Over © Facebook Enter Arthur Nautilus, the man who introduced the pullover machine into the world of bodybuilding. Nothing was the same after that. Since the bodybuilders now had access to a more specific machine, the inclination towards the free weight dumbbell pullover diminished. Soon after, the 90s saw the exit of the pullover with the pompous entry of the functional fitness advocates. Bashed left, right and centre and the pullovers were labeled a 'shoulder-killer'. Does It Really Cause Shoulder Injuries? Almost any exercise done wrongly can cause injury. Either you are just too weak or simply lack the mobility to perform the pullover. Before jumping right into a pullover, check your over head shoulder pressing. Can you press with a full range of motion? If yes, go ahead. If no, you need mobility work. Can you do dead-hang pull-ups- all the way down and all the way up? If yes, you can try the pullover. To know whether if this exercise is for you or not, take a lighter weight and perform some initial reps. If you feel something weird in your shoulders, it's not for you. How Bros Do It Wrong! 1) Not bracing the core. 2) Dead straight arms by locking the elbow. Always maintain a slight bend. 3) Bending the elbows way too much and hence involving the triceps. How To Do It Right 1) First things first, tighten your core. 2) Use a moderately heavy weight to start with. 3) Don't lock the elbows into a straight arm. Keep a slight bend, not too much either. 4) Don't over-stretch in the over head position. 5) Keep the shoulders depressed (retracted) into the bench. What Does it Really Build Though? © Facebook Well, both. The pullover was once called the upper-body squat for a reason. It hits nearly every damn inch of your back and the chest. Depends on how you perform it, chest and back can be targeted separately. But all in all, it does hit both the muscle groups.
  21. When you have Beyonce perform at the pre-wedding ceremony, one can only wonder what the actual wedding will entail. Clearly, the whole of Bollywood was wondering the same thing when they attended the wedding, and boy did they 'dress'! Everyone put their best foot forward, but two gentlemen who stole everyone's thunder were Shah Rukh Khan and Suniel Shetty. Why, you ask? They brought back the incredibly underrated and most ignored item of Indian ethnic menswear - the good ol' Dhoti. Take a look! © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Both of them wore white dhotis and paired them with black achkans. While Suniel wore a classy, basic achkan with black buttons, SRK went ahead and wore one with golden buttons, replete with a rich maroon pocket square. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani The dhoti is one of the most comfortable and regal looking outfits ever, but it's been a while we saw a celebrity embrace it in all its royal glory, before these two men here did it with the utmost class. Don't they look phenomenal? © Viral Bhayani View this post on Instagram A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Dec 12, 2018 at 11:57am PST View this post on Instagram A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Dec 13, 2018 at 1:55am PST
  22. This year, we saw a lot of brands coming up with a sliding design. The addition of moving parts has never been a bright idea for a portable device like a mobile phone, but companies still went ahead and added sliding camera modules to eliminate the notch. The elimination of the notch meant a better screen-to-body ratio, and we gotta say, the automatic pop-up camera did look cool. Vivo was among the first few to come up with a sliding camera phone, and the NEX was one of them. Now, the brand is back with the successor of the phone, and the idea of a sliding camera module has been completely eliminated. We expected the successor to be called NEX 2 but instead, it has been dubbed the Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition. © Vivo Now, Vivo wants to try something new and has added a huge display on the back of the phone a well. While we've seen a similar concept onboard the Russian Yotaphone, the NEX stands apart thanks to its 3D TOF stereo camera. The front has a 6.39-inch bezel-less display while the rear has a 5.49-inch screen and both have an AMOLED panel and Full HD resolution. As expected of a flagship device, the Vivo NEX Dual is powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset and will be available in 10GB of RAM coupled with 128GB of non-expandable storage. © YouTube/Engadget The back has some space on the top where the camera module, consisting of a 12-megapixel primary sensor backed with a 2-megapixel secondary lens, is located. A "Lunar Ring" on the back of the device is functional as well and acts as a soft flash for low-light selfie shots. The ring also changes colour to signify app notifications. Another unique addition to the phone is a time of flight (TOF) 3D module. It maps objects by firing pulses of light and then measuring the time taken for that light to return, which will allow for accurately modeling your face for more secure facial recognition, as well as for personalized beautification. © Vivo The phone runs on Funtouch OS 4.5 that's based on the latest Android 9 Pie. The phone is also equipped with an in-display fingerprint reader and the phone is expected to go on sale in various regions soon. In China, it is priced at CNY 4,998 (Rs 52,000).
  23. Fitness trackers have become mainstream in the last few years and with technology advancing, we see them getting cheaper as well as more powerful. Wearable technology is undoubtedly the future and brands are scrambling to develop accessories that can find practical usage in our life. We've already seen smart glasses, smart clothing, in-body RFID chips, smart shoes, and more. What's interesting is, wearable technology simply isn't new. There have been numerous prototypes and limited consumers products going back to the '90s. One prime example is the Puma RS-Computer, a running shoe produced in limited quantity by the athletic goods maker way back in 1986. © Puma In 1986, the Running System (RS) Computer Shoe housed a not-so-small computer system at the rear. It could measure speed, distance, and calories burned. Runners had to then connect the shoe via a 16-pin connector to any Apple IIE, Commodore 64, or IBM PC to view their data. Puma is bringing back the 1986 RS-Computer but you no longer need a computer from the '80s to access the data. The new edition will look the same as the 1986 version but has a technologically updated interface. They now pack a three-axis accelerometer, enough memory to store a full month's worth of exercise data, wireless Bluetooth connectivity and a USB port for charging. © Puma To keep the retro feel alive, the modern app gets a retro finish with 8-bit style graphics and even has an 8-bit game inside it. Puma is keeping the look of the original shoes, right down to the protruding heel and the colors. "The 2018 iteration has new technology but replicates the original experience," Puma says. © Puma Adidas too had released similar shoes called the Micropacer in 1984. They didn't connect to a computer though, a small screen on the shoe tongue displayed all the compiled data. The company says it will be making only 86 pairs that will be sold online and at Puma stores in Berlin, Tokyo, and London, as well as KITH retailers. Unfortunately, the pricing hasn't been announced yet.
  24. "This is the Taj Hotel, you're very safe here," says Dev Patel in the chilling teaser of 'Hotel Mumbai' that is set to the bring back the haunting memories of 26/11 attacks, which shook both Mumbai and the country from its core. Presenting the teaser poster of one of the most important films of our times #HotelMumbai. ð pic.twitter.com/gAaUae8Aqs — Anupam Kher (@AnupamPKher) December 10, 2018 Directed by Australian filmmaker Anthony Maras, the film takes us back to 2008 when some terrorists opened fire at places like Chhatrapathi Shivaji Terminus (CST), Leopold Cafe, Nariman House, the Oberoi Trident Hotel, and the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. What goes on inside the hotel and the minds of the staff and the guests, when innocent lives are being brutally taken away by the terrorists, weaves the rest of the plot. The movie stars Dev Patel, Armie Hammer and Anupam Kher in prominent roles. Dev Patel plays a waiter at the hotel, Anupam Kher is the head chef and Armie Hammer plays a tourist who is staying at the hotel. According to the synopsis, "this story celebrates humanity, compassion, courage, resilience and the unwavering desire to survive." The teaser is intriguing and bone-chilling to say the least and the movie is expected to release in 2019.
  25. If you are amongst those who like to work only on their show-off muscles (biceps, chest or abs), then you may move on to some other article, but if you are looking to build a V-taper sturdy back in 2019, then I suggest you read this complete article. I know it happens during your initial years of training, when you don't really work on your back as you don't really see your back in the mirror after every set. However, when you have spent a couple of years in your training, you realize the importance of that V-taper thick back. In this article, I am going to tell you 5 exercises that you should be doing in 2019 to build that V-taper and thick back: 1. Barbell Deadlift © YouTube The king of all the back exercises is the deadlift. It's not just an exercise for your back muscles but it actually works on your complete posterior chain. However, I would suggest that the deadlift shouldn't be just about the numbers game where you flaunt your latest deadlift numbers. Building good hypertrophy in your back muscles has more to do with thr correct technique and range of motion than just flaunting your deadlift numbers. Thus, focus more on the mind and muscle connection than just adding plates to the barbell. 2. Pull-Ups © Thinkstock You may say that I am being biased here, but trust me, no other exercise except Pull-ups offers you the same level of upper lat muscle activation. You may find it difficult to perform it if you are a beginner, so I would suggest that you take the help of a spotter or use the assisted pull-up machine if your gym has one. Also, performing Pull-ups early in your workout is always the best, as you might not be able to do them with the same intensity during the latter part of your workout. Not to mention that form is important here too and the scapula should be retracted before initiating a pull-up. 3. T-Bar Rows © YouTube If there's one exercise that has served a staple in back workouts from Arnold's era, it's the T-Bar Rows. T-Bars are your best bet if your back muscles are weak from the middle. A neutral grip T-Bar engages your rhomboids, teres and trap muscles at the same time, helping you to build that cobra shape thick back muscles. The best part about this exercise is that even if you do not have an exclusive T-Bar Station in your gym, you can still perform this exercise with a barbell and free weights. 4. Single Arm Dumbbell Rowing © Bodybuilding Wizard Single arm dumbbell rowing is an ideal way to include a few unilateral movements in your back workouts. It also allows you to lift heavier weights and perform an optimum range of motion. Try to maintain a neutral spine position if you want to hit your overall back muscles and not just the upper lats. Generally, people often complain about having a weak lower back, well, a majority of them fail to maintain a neutral spine and thus work only on their upper lats. 5. Close Grip Pull Down © YouTube The Lat-Pull Down is an exercise that people always perform in their back workout. I am sure you would also be doing it from the first day of your visit to the gym. Thus, instead of Lat-pull downs, I've included a variation in this workout. This one is called Close-Grip Pull down where you will perform the same movement but with another grip. Use the close grip handlebar to perform this movement. It will give you the same level of lat-activation, if not less, and will also offer you a change of exercise.
