  1. Smartphones are cool and all, but have you seen the 'Banana Phone'? Yes, a phone that literally looks like a banana! Well, before we check out this cool gadget, it's worth pointing out that it isn't really a phone. The Banana Phone is essentially a Bluetooth headset that connects to your phone, and you can use it to, you know, take calls. It's one of those things that was made to keep you away from your smartphones. According to the folks over at The Verge, a new version of Banana Phone is coming soon, and it's said to have some meaningful updates from the original model. © Banana Phone Looks like the new Banana Phone will have a really good speaker, which means you can also use it as a Bluetooth speaker. The new phone is also said to have an improved battery life of 20 hours of talk time. Alright using a Banana Phone probably sounds like a weird thing to think, but come on, a phone that looks like a Banana and can play Raffi's “Bananaphone”? Are you kidding me? It's a no brainer and that's what makes it so cool! Just the fact that you can do that today is pretty awesome and I might actually pick one up just to be that guy using a phone out there. © Banana Phone But on a serious note, it's important that you keep yourself away from smartphones as much as you can to prevent exhausting and even addiction in some cases. Using a basic feature phone or companion devices like the Banana Phone is the best you can do. If you don't want to be that weird person, then you can be a little subtle and get Nokia's Banana phone instead. The Banana Phone, obviously, isn't coming to India. However, it'll be available through their official website very soon where they're currently selling the older version of the phone.
  2. It's that time of the year when you might want to splurge on a new smartphone and call it a festive season shopping. 2019 has been an exciting year for smartphones, so there are a lot of options to choose from irrespective of the budget. Well, in case you're looking to keep your expenses in check and want to go for a budget phone, then here are the ones which we think are worth buying this festive season - 1. Redmi Note 8/ Note 8 Pro © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Xiaomi has been the top player when it comes to budget phones for quite some time now, and this year they've launched a lot of good phones. More recently for the festive season, the company has launched the new Redmi Note 8 and the Redmi Note 8 Pro. If you're not willing to spend more than, say, Rs 10,000 or Rs 15,000, then you simply can't go wrong with either of these phones. While the Redmi Note 8 brings a quad-camera setup, Snapdragon 665 SoC and a 4,000 mAh battery, all under Rs 10,000. If you a bit more money to spend, then simply go with the Redmi Note 8 Pro which brings a quad-camera setup with a 64MP Samsung GW1 sensor, the new Helio G70T processor with up to 8GB RAM and a 4,500 mAh battery. 2. Realme 5/ 5 Pro © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Realme has also launched a ton of phones this year and the company's latest offering in the budget range i.e., Realme 5 and the Realme 5 Pro are some of the best budget phones we tested this year. They both have a quad-camera setup and have a really cool design. You get a massive 5,000 mAh battery with the Realme 5, and a 48MP camera and support for 20-Watt VOOC 3.0 charger in the box with the Realme 5 Pro. In terms of the specs, both the Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro seems pretty compelling for the price. Realme 5 is powered by Snapdragon 665 SoC whereas the Realme 5 Pro is powered Snapdragon 712 SoC and comes with up to 8GB of RAM. You can read our full review of the Realme 5 Pro right here. 3. Samsung Galaxy M30s © YouTube/ Techbar The new Samsung Galaxy M30s is also a great option if you don't want to spend too much on a phone. It looks sleek and the AMOLED display on the front also looks absolutely gorgeous. The phone also sports a triple camera setup at the back which includes a 48MP sensor. However, the highlight of the phone has got to be the massive 6,000 mAh battery at the back. This is a great phone if you want to gift it to, say, your parents. 4. Poco F1 © MesnXP/ Akshay Bhalla Yes, there are a lot of rumors about the launch of Poco F2, but we're not sure if it's happening at all. In the meantime, if you want to buy a new phone right now, then the original Poco F1 is still a surprisingly very good phone. The phone is now available for just Rs 14,599, and it's just a no brainer at that price. You can read our review of the phone right here.
  3. Ali Fazal is one actor who is not just making waves in Bollywood but has also found his calling from the shores of Hollywood on the basis of his insane and sheer talent. © Excel Entertainment The Mirzapur actor, who has had to work very hard to prove his mettle, is currently on an all-time career high. With Victoria And Abdul giving him a pretty solid exposure in Hollywood, Ali is currently busy shooting with none other than Wonder Woman Gal Gadot for Death In the Nile, which is based on an Agatha Christie novel. The cast and the crew is currently on a shooting schedule in London, where Ali also called in his 33rd birthday, courtesy Gal, who threw a private and a surprise dinner bash for him. Ali took to social media to share the pictures and videos from his birthday, along with a 'thank you' note. View this post on Instagram And the Birthday ended on a sweet and very co incidental plan manifested at this cute little place with some of my wonderful co actors #annettebening @gal_gadot . Thanks for that video Gal, i literally blew the light out of that frame. Also with me was maah dear friend aditya desai and sonali cozied up in a booth near the fire. i wana thank alll my friends and fans from across the globe who poured in with the wishes. I wish everyone wisdom in these dark times - words are often thrown about like shredded paper and so i ask of you to stop and ponder on the ones you use in lets say one day. They can change the world . I kid you not. My two bits. HAVE A GREAT OCTOBER . (I mean i'll stil post its just.. sounded like a nice end so oct isnt over ð³ ) bye. A post shared by ali fazal (@alifazal9) on Oct 16, 2019 at 1:20am PDT While still in London, he also decided to catch a movie at the ongoing film festival where he also, in what one might call an event of pure serendipity, got the chance to meet his idol, the legendary Al Pacino. Ali happily shared his selfie with him along with a long note about this wonderful encounter which read as follows: "I post this today. My best gift of 2019, hell actually my whole life as ive known it because the people who know me know very well what this meant. I told him i pirated his movies just to catch up at one point. Id neva do that now but we all done bad things.We spoke a little about my work and then for some reason i remembered my two mamu's and my mum being great fans of him as well.. so, i told him they were the ones who got me hooked on to you. My first fairytale i remember as a child is a story about an italian family in newyork. And years later i asked my mom why she did that. Who tells a kid about the godfather and she said - “i thought it was a nice story but i dont think i told it right. Go Watch it “. Anyway.. this was long overdue. And it happened at a private screening for the irishman with Mr De niro, Martin scorsese, harvy kietel, anna paquin and Al ofcourse. The movie? Flawless and if i can say the perfect film. Now u must understand an actor can never say that but it is. Its long tho.” Wow. Talk about the ultimate birthday gift. Death On The Nile follows the story of detective Hercule Poirot, who is trying to solve the case of the mysterious death of an Egyptian princess.
  4. Bollywood's one of the most loved couples Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are only a few months away from celebrating their first wedding anniversary, as they tied the knot in December 2018. Recently, in an interview to Harper's Bazaar US, Deepika got candid about her life after marriage, battling depression and her Bollywood journey so far among others. The 33-year-old actor, on being asked about why she did not want to live with Ranveer before marriage, said, “There was a lot of temptation to move away from the traditional, especially for the two of us, who are constantly travelling, but it was important to me." She added, "Ranveer has always been okay with whatever. He's always said, 'Whatever makes you happy makes me happy.' But for me, it's about wanting to do everything at the right time. It's how I saw my parents do it, so I didn't know any other way.” View this post on Instagram â¤ï¸ A post shared by Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) on Feb 22, 2019 at 3:51am PST “If we had started living together earlier, then what would we be discovering later on? That's what this year has been—living together and discovering each other. I like to say we made the best decision of our lives. I know people are cynical about marriage, but that hasn't been our experience. We believe in the institution, and we're enjoying every bit of it,” she further added. Should we call it a wise decision? It surely seems to have worked for the 'power couple' and they are still madly in love. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) on Nov 20, 2018 at 3:32am PST Soon after the wedding, Deepika started shooting for Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak, in which she will be seen playing the role of an acid attack survivor. Besides, she will also be seen in the much awaited film 83, a biopic of veteran cricketer Kapil Dev, alongside her husband Ranveer. Deepika plays cricketer Kapil Dev's wife Romi.
  5. Here's some mid-week news that'll probably kill that dullness you all have been spiralling down into, voluntarily. Especially for those humans who can thrive on mainstream cinema like their life depends on it, because this news is like cold drinking water in the middle of a vast desert for them. The fourth instalment of Matrix is officially happening, with some old and new actors in the loop and we can't keep our cool any longer. We've all grown up watching the trilogy and if there is something to take away from the series, it's the thought-provoking pieces of sci-fi it has given us, over the last decade. © shortlist So, let's list down everything we know so far, everything we've recently found out and everything else that's left in the realms of speculation, about Matrix 4: (1) Who Is Coming Back Keanu Reeves will reprise his role as the hacker Neo, in the fourth instalment, alongside another cast member, Carrie-Ann Moss, and we can't wait to watch what they have in store for us in the fourth edition. The movie will be directed by co-creator Lana Wachowski who will also write and produce the film. Given Trinity and Neo's fates at the end of the original Matrix trilogy, the sequel will need to find an intelligent way to incorporate their roles into the new story. But I guess that shouldn't be too difficult for a series that's all about virtual reality, mysticism and, of course, some massive plot twists! © Warner Bros Apart from Keanu and Carrie, we have someone else amidst us who was announced to be part of the franchise this month. TBH, he's quite legen...wait for it...dary! Yup, How I Met Your Mother and Gone Girl actor, Neil Patrick Harris has also joined the cast in an unidentified role. We're not sure what role he's been offered but it's definitely Harris's first big film. © Movieweb Apart from Harris, the film also stars Aquaman's Black Manta, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, in a significant lead role. We believe he plays the younger version of Morpheus, the role that was originally played by Lawrence Fishburne in the Matrix series. We also recently found out that Jada Pinkett Smith is in current negotiations to return to the franchise. She played the role of Niobe in parts 2 and 3, The Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions and from what we've heard, she's not done with the role. For now, we're still waiting for confirmation on this but it'll be a happy little reunion to have her back in the cast. © deadlien (2) Who Isn't Coming Back Sadly enough the OG Morpheus, aka Lawrence Fishburne, has decided he does not need more Matrix in his life and wants to sit this one out. Which also means the pivotal role of Morpheus will be recast. Wanna take any wild guesses on who, in all probability, will take up the character? Also, the original producer, Joel Silver will not be working on the new Matrix movie. We're really bummed about Fishburne's absence though. © Warner Bros (3) What's The Plot? “Many of the ideas Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now. I'm very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends,” Lana Wachowski said in the official announcement at a press conference. © Warner Bros Well, to make the theme more relevant for Matrix 4, whatever has happened in the past twenty years is under consideration or at least there is a slight flashback mention of the events that occurred in the earlier series. So far, we know that the main Matrix theme is definitely back and in some way, it paraphrases the other revolutionary franchise, John Wick, with changing political landscapes and digital existences. Also, Reddit has come with a rather interesting theory and you should give it a read. (4) When Is It Releasing? The release date hasn't been announced for the next Matrix instalment but it's definitely not too far off since the production of the film will begin somewhere early 2020. So far, we're not sure if the other Wachowski sibling be involved in Matrix 4, although Warner Brothers seem to think the franchise is safe in Lana's hands. © NBCNews “We could not be more excited to be reentering The Matrix with Lana. She is a true visionary — a singular and original creative filmmaker — and we are thrilled that she is writing, directing, and producing this new chapter in The Matrix universe.” - said Warner Bros Picture Group Chairman, Toby Emmerich in an interview. © Warner Bros While we thought the curtains had closed on the entire Matrix franchise, we're so glad we get to see a lot more from the same universe, something every virtual geek will be really looking forward to! Here's waiting with bated breath for one of the best sci-fi movies out there.
  6. Ever since smartphones are a thing, digital music players have seen quite a big fall in sales and demand. While simple MP3 players don't make sense today for audiophiles, using a digital music player is not a far fetched idea. If a music player can offer awesome sound quality and a range of features, it may just impress old skool music player lovers. FiiO is one of those brands that offers quality, high-resolution music players. Not all smartphones support Hi-Res audio and many are removing the headphone jack that pisses off audiophiles like me. I've mentioned in the past why Bluetooth earphones are no match for an analogue experience and you can read all of the reasons here. The FiiO M6 is actually quite similar to smartphones when you look at its design. It has an aluminium alloy body and 3.5D glass with a touchscreen at the front. It runs on an older version of Android which is more than enough for listening to music. It is quite small in size which means it is perfect to carry around in your pocket and backpacks. If you are afraid of scratching your player, it comes with a silicone case in the box that keeps it safe. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla When it comes to music players, the first concern is always storage. "How much music can you store and can you expand the storage?” are the first few questions that arise. You will be happy to know that the FiiO M6 comes with 2GB of internal storage to get you started and can be expanded via the micro-SD up to 2TB. You can potentially store your entire library in this little player. © FiiO Having said that, if you are the kind who also streams music, you can also take advantage of the M6's Wifi streaming capability. You can stream music from apps like Spotify and Apple Music via AirPlay. If you like to listen to music wirelessly, you can also pair your favourite Bluetooth earphones. Apart from using these features, you can also control the music player's functions with your Android smartphone using the FiiO link app. The FiiO M6 can also double up as an independent DAC (digital to analogue converter) for your Windows or Mac computer. The FiiO M6 also has great battery backup as it can last 13 hours on a single charge. It takes around 2 hours to get it fully charged and you can always extend your playback session with a power bank when travelling. When it comes to the sound quality, we would recommend you use the 1More Triple Driver earphones as it offers support for Hi-Res audio and delivers an awesome listening experience. The soundstage feels layered, multidimensional and wider at the same time. The sound is way crisper than anything you will experience from smartphones and the DAC chips convert the audio well when connected to a computer. The Fiio M6 also has support for apt-X HD, aptX, SBC, and LDAC codecs and can run all of these formats: ISO, DFF, DSF, APE, WAV, FLAC, AIF, AIFF, M4A, WMA, OGG, AAC, ALAC, MP3, DSD. The Final Say If you are a true audiophile and still want to experience good sound, the M6 is probably your best bet. You can always get the M9, but it is probably an expensive option to consider. You can use it to stream music from your favourite service or use it as a DAC for your computer. It is by far the most affordable sound upgrade for users who are looking for a simple music player that can deliver great sound fidelity as well.
  7. “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” - Lao Tzu There is something especially invigorating and enthralling about hiking. After all, it's that one adventure sport that - apart from keeping you fit, increasing your stamina and helping you adopt a healthier lifestyle - also makes you feel one with Mother Nature herself. Now when it comes to hiking, there are a lot of essential things that you require so as to make sure your experience is one without any hindrances. These include - but aren't limited to - rain gear, extra water, a hydration pouch, sunscreen, sunglasses and even extra food. But perhaps the one thing that you require the most - a hiking essential you simply cannot do without - is the right pair of hiking/trekking shoes. After all, if you're planning on scaling a mountain, hill or a steep trail, you need to ensure that you're wearing the appropriate footwear. But before investing in a pair of trekking shoes for yourself, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Think of these less as limitations, and more as basic ground rules to follow so as to make sure you make an informed choice: 1. The type of trek you're planning on doing: Depending on the type of trek you're planning on doing - and the type of terrain you choose to trek on - certain shoes will prove to be more durable, adaptable and useful than others. As such, when searching for trekking shoes, you should make sure that you are fully aware of the trek you'll be doing and just how difficult, steep, rugged and long it's going to be. 2. The specific features of the shoes: All shoes come with different types of midsoles, outsoles and uppers. They also come with different types of fastenings. So needless to say, you should be absolutely clear about the specific features of the shoes you're planning on buying. This is important because a rubber outsole will be more durable than a synthetic one, an EVA padded insole will always provide more cushioning than others, and a textile upper will be less durable than a synthetic one. 3. The brand you're opting to go for: While it's never wise to be a brand brat, the hiking shoes you're opting for need to be of OPTIMUM quality. After all, trekking can be a dangerous adventure sport if you don't have the right equipment with you. So ensuring you opt for reputable brands, or opt for brands that are known for curing hiking shoes, becomes of paramount importance. So with those three factors in mind, let us go through a collection of the 12 best trekking shoes for men that will elevate your hiking experience to new heights (pun intended!) Check Out The Best Hiking Shoes For Men In India 1. Adidas Men's Ax2 Trekking Shoes © Amazon India We already know how reputable and sought after a brand like Adidas is, especially vis-a-vis footwear.

  8. It's summer and Peter Parker has decided to go on vacation, telling us that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is definitely far from being over. The social media embargo on reviews of 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' has been lifted and the feedback is as bright as a positive ray of light. Disney is definitely confident about what about the film director, Jon Watts has made and the reactions talk about its humour, action and a few major twists. Although the movie is set to release on July 5, the press screenings have started and we can't wait to catch the new Spidey flick. © Sony Pictures Releasing Marvel and Disney have always made it a point to lift embargos on movies way before their release to get a positive word of mouth in advance and this time was no different. According to the trailer, this one has Peter Parker aka Spider-Man taking a vacation in Europe with his classmates. However, he runs into Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) or rather he's hunted down by Fury and the mysterious Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) aka Quentin Beck to help defeat some apolyptic 'Elemental' monster! © Sony Pictures Releasing Some are calling the film a perfect 'Avengers: Endgame' epilogue where the MCU goes on an emotionally fulfilling ride, while some say it's the best Spidey movie yet. Let's see what the critics have to say about 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' FAR FROM HOME has dethroned Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 & is now favorite Spider-Man film. What's insane is that I can't even tell u why I'm so in love with this film because it would be a spoiler. Gyllenhaal is incredible. Holland re-confirms as the best Spidey to date. Amazing. pic.twitter.com/pbynxYIEyQ — Kevin McCarthy (@KevinMcCarthyTV) 19 June 2019 I didn't expect to laugh so hard at a movie that deals with the emotional and global fallout of Avengers: Endgame. I really, really enjoyed #SpiderManFarFromeHome (liked it a smidge more than Homecoming), and thought it absolutely succeeded when it dealt with human-scale stories. pic.twitter.com/Cy985w2NeV — Terri Schwartz (@Terri_Schwartz) 19 June 2019 I had a big dumb smile on my face through all of #SpiderManFarFromHome. It makes for a lovely companion piece to Endgame, but it's also a top-notch Peter story. Oh, and Jake Gyllenhaal is clearly having the time of his LIFE. — Devan Coggan (@devancoggan) 19 June 2019 #SpiderManFarFromHome isn't quite as wonderful as Homecoming, but it's a really strong, endearing sequel that delivers some excellent moments in its second half in particular. It commendably furthers Peter's story while laying groundwork for what's next in a notably deft way. — Eric Goldman (@TheEricGoldman) 19 June 2019 I saw Spider-Man: Far From Home last night - it's pretty much the perfect Avengers: Endgame epilogue - reminding us that the MCU goes on in a joyous, emotionally fulfilling ride. #SpiderManFarFromHome — Sean Keane (@SpectacularSean) 19 June 2019 #SpiderMan #FarFromHome is an absolute home run. It's SO much fun. It's huge in itself and for the future of the MCU in the most surprising ways. Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, just a lethal, awesome combo!! I cannot wait to see this movie again. And again. pic.twitter.com/0hYJvKkdjN — Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) 19 June 2019 I can't stress this enough: stay all the way through the credits for #FarFromHome!!! There's a couple of brilliant sequences waiting for you! Dodge #SpiderMan spoilers as best you can!! pic.twitter.com/vhiJcMwzF1 — Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) 19 June 2019 Absolutely loved SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME. I'm a huge Mysterio fan and Gyllenhaal nails him. Also the movie is very clever (and funny) how it handles the fallout post ENDGAME in explaining how this world works now. — Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) 19 June 2019 Didn't LOVE #SpiderManFarFromHome as much as Homecoming but it's still a rad take on bearing the weight of great expectations and a fun ode to teen romance. Tom Holland continues to be amazing, Zendaya's MJ is just as cool as Shuri and Jake G's an inspired choice for Mysterio. pic.twitter.com/nnu7BPjcFO — Brian Truitt (@briantruitt) 19 June 2019 #FarFromHome non spoiler thoughts: most comic booky movie marvel has put out. Second and third acts are outstanding. The two post credit sequences are going to stick in my brain for a L O N G time. I cannot wait to see this movie at least three more times. — Preeti Chhibber (@runwithskizzers) 19 June 2019 #Spiderman #FarFromHome is SUCH a good movie! Jake Gyllenhaal suits up & completely embraces his role in its entirety & he's clearly having a blast. This is such a refreshing film after the heaviness of #EndGame. The post-credit scenes are a MUST WATCH & will blow your dang mind! pic.twitter.com/wcTh9iHaYq — Maude Garrett (@maudegarrett) 19 June 2019 Spider-Man: Far from Home is an extremely fun, cleverly executed, and frequently hilarious culmination of the MCU's wall-crawler's journey so far. Some very sweet moments, sly commentary and deft action set-pieces throughout #SpiderManFarFromHome pic.twitter.com/5sAmxh4E3p — Jim Vejvoda (@JimVejvoda) 19 June 2019 #SpiderManFarFromHome had the difficult task of following two epic Avengers movies AND Spider-Verse and succeeds by telling a smaller, classical story about Peter Parker caught between what he wants and what responsibility demands. Pure cat(spider)nip for Spidey fans like me. pic.twitter.com/G2a4p6YhAr — Matt Singer (@mattsinger) 19 June 2019 I love that #SpiderManFarFromHome is all sleight-of-hand. It begs to be seen multiple times. pic.twitter.com/nwIX24L8WH — Jason Guerrasio (@JasonGuerrasio) 19 June 2019 absolutely loved #SpiderManFarFromHome. Captures the spirit of the comics and mixes in some amazing movie magic. The second the film ended I wanted to watch it again. #JakeGyllenhaal is fantastic as Mysterio. pic.twitter.com/4ZYaS0L8mf — Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) 19 June 2019 #SpiderManFarFromHome is the coda we needed after Endgame, a glimpse of how the world looks now that the dust has settled. Could maybe have gone a bit harder on P's emotional arc, but bursting with warmth and humor and awkward teen romance. ð Also: Jake G = perfect casting. — Angie J. Han (@ajhan) 19 June 2019 #SpiderManFarFromHome: B-/C+. If you loved the teen-centric stuff in Homecoming, there's more where that came from. Some of the comedy falls flat, but this film has A LOT going on – ultimately beneficial because it mostly distracts from stuff that doesn't land quite as well. pic.twitter.com/1wVMyT5bv9 — Ben Pearson (@benpears) 19 June 2019 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' is a refreshingly light-hearted adventure after the somber intensity of Avengers: Endgame, delivering exactly the kind of wise-cracking antics we've come to expect from Tom Holland's Peter Parker. - @jacobkleinman pic.twitter.com/EWik8F9VUr — Inverse (@inversedotcom) 19 June 2019 A lot of critics praised the film, saying it didn't disappoint them at all, as you can see above from the reactions. They all concurred that MCU has the most amazing ways to surprise their fans. There were also praises for how the film carved it's story post 'Avengers: Endgame' ending, and how the characters react to Iron Man aka Tony Starks death. There's a lot of mention of that towards the film's climactic action scene and several critics have mentioned that one may want to watch it over and over, just for that remarkable twist, towards the end. The film will conclude the third phase of the MCU, post which new characters will be introduced into the series, in all probability. So, get your Spidey game on and get ready to witness an excellent movie (as told by the critics) on July 5.
  9. It was an important day yesterday. Well, to be precise, the best Chris in Hollywood's birthday. Captain America is an integral part of Avengers and Chris Evans is an integral part of his MCU costars' life. Birthday wishes were pouring in from everywhere - even from us - and it was great to see everyone come together to celebrate this human golden retriever. Mark Ruffalo being cute like always. Happiest of birthdays to the fantastic @ChrisEvans ð¥³ð Love you, Bro. Always there when you need him. Wishing you all the best today! pic.twitter.com/WJT2kbudN5 — Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) June 13, 2019 Even Chris is happy and cute while replying. Awwww, buddy. You're a gem ð — Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) June 13, 2019 And, Mark wasn't done. Glad you are here, man. — Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) June 13, 2019 Okay, that sounds a little serious, I hope everything's fine. Then comes another Chris wishing him, actually singing 'happy birthday' for him on air with Tessa Thompson. Since both Evans and Hemsworth are like BFFs, the school kids who had to be separated during interviews, I'm disappointed Hemsworth didn't post a goofy BTS picture for him. But now let's look at the birthday wish we were waiting for. Yes, Robert Downey Jr HAD to top every birthday wish Chris got yesterday. One of the best parts of 'Avengers: Endgame' was the whole Cap vs Cap scene, but do you remember how it ended? Yes, with Cap admiring his own ass. Well, even RDJ remembers and wished 'America's ass' a happy birthday. Happy birthday to America's ass. The world's a better place, and I owe you a kiss on the cheek! @ChrisEvans pic.twitter.com/iCFRSu0DIH — Robert Downey Jr (@RobertDowneyJr) June 13, 2019 Take the kiss, Chris! ðð — Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) June 13, 2019 Like that.

  10. It's the best Chris in Hollywood's birthday, yay! What can I say about Chris Evans? He's a great actor, he's a great person, he's literally a golden retriever in human form. This near-perfect human being turned 38 today and we obviously need to celebrate him, and what better way than to look back at all of his best scenes from the MCU? Let's be real, he can do whatever role he wants, but he will always be Captain America (sorry, Anthony Mackie but that's what you get for a boring Black Mirror episode). As Cap, he's given us many incredible movies with unforgettable dialogues and scenes. While every scene with him is great, of course, I have listed out the best, most memorable scenes. Enjoy! Also, happy birthday, Cap! 1. The best Cap scene ever/ Hammer Time This scene, this freaking scene, is hands down the best MCU moment for me. I can watch it a hundred times and still be as excited as the first time. Such a crucial moment, Thanos is overpowering Thor and will probably kill him, but wait, in comes Cap to show he's worthy. Nothing can top this. 2. Cap vs Cap Another great 'Endgame' scene that we didn't know he needed until it actually happened. From “I can do this all day” “yeah, I know, I know” to “Bucky is alive” to “this IS America's ass”, the whole Cap vs Cap fight scene was perfect, nothing can make it better. 3. “There's only one God” What a dialogue, what a way to introduce Thor in 'The Avengers', and Steve being Steve and jumping out of planes. Also, him calling Natasha 'ma'am' proving he really is from the 40s. 4. When he blocks Thor's hammer Well, now we know how and why he could do this. He's also so worthy! Also, the moment Thor realizes they're not some random people. 5. Lift scene(s) A great scene from an overall great movie. The 'lift scene' is so memorable, it's so well done. Anyone should be afraid of getting into a lift with Chris Evans - or make fun of it - but either way, it's still one of the best MCU scenes till date and that's why there was a callback to that in 'Endgame' as well. Cap saying 'Hail Hydra' will never not be funny to me. 6. Cap is strong, like very very strong If you were not even a little turned on by Chris Evans' muscles and strength in this scene, then you're not human and you're also lying. The guy is so freaking strong, he literally could stop a fucking helicopter from flying. Strongest Avenger right here, people. Hulk who? 7. Nomad Cap! You cannot tell me that Cap's entry in 'Infinity War' wasn't one of the best scenes in a movie filled with incredible scenes. To be honest, it was the perfect way to introduce the newest Avenger - Captain America's cool new beard (and no I'm not talking about Peggy or Sharon). 8. AVENGERS…assemble Well, we started with 'Endgame' and we'll end with 'Endgame', obviously. This might not be a long scene but it's a damn powerful one. Everyone who got dusted is back - which again was a visual treat in itself - but when Cap comes in front and does what he does best - lead - it was just great to watch. Also, it was the last time these Avengers will ever assemble and the added emotional aspect makes it an unforgettable scene from the entire MCU.
  11. Ayushmann Khurrana is literally the man of the hour RN. Ever since the trailer for 'Article 15' rolled out, we can't stop looking at his amped-up, fashion-forward appearances. This man has been wise in making his style choices and knows exactly how to arrive all spiffed up, no matter the occasion. From sporting a whacky printed blazer to donning a long plaid shirt, Ayushmann has left no box unchecked and brings his A-game every damn time. As for his latest look, Ayushmann is camouflaging our feed with this statement-making outfit. Check it out: A splendid choice that steers clear of the usual, has to be a neon camouflage hype tracksuit by Abhishek Paatni, courtesy AK's stylist, Isha Bhansali. Casual, street and sharp, the silhouettes are engineered with modern fashion dialogue. © Instagram/Isha Bhansali But what grabbed our attention the most were his White Gucci sneakers. Ayushmann opted for Rhyton sneakers with NY Yankees™ print. The chunky sneakers have a retro vibe that looks minimal yet fashionable. We totally recommend these street-cred shoes that are comfortable and a worthy move to cop this summer. © Gucci As far as the design goes, the sneakers are inspired by the New York Yankees Baseball Hat which is incorporated in the Cruise 2019 collection. The inner sole has a blue rosebud print while the outer leather is debossed with the Gucci logo at the back sole. The heel centre is elevated, lending enough height to look suave and sophisticated. These sneakers are also available in eclectic blue colour. © Gucci © Gucci © Gucci When it comes to the cost of these white sneakers in India, they retail at a price of Rs 61,823. © Gucci © Gucci White Sneakers will always be on the fashion radar and no matter where you plan to nail the outfit, these trendsetters are a surefire way to stand out than the rest. I mean, look at them. © Gucci These white Gucci sneakers are truly a great investment at the price of Rs 61,823. They dial up the style formula and make a dramatic statement each time you step out wearing them. Not just that, these sneakers do the talking even with the most basic outfit of yours. Don't we all want that?

  13. Microsoft wrapped up its best E3 briefing in a long time with over 60 games. But do you know what stole the show? Cyberpunk 2077's gameplay reveal, featuring Keanu Reeves. Yes, the 'John Wick' star Keanu Reeves is actually a part of a game, and we seriously don't know how to react. Like, WHAT? Is this really happening? Well, if you're just as surprised as us, then let us tell you that it's indeed true. CD Projekt Red just released a new trailer at Microsoft's E3 briefing that ends with one of the most unexpected celebrity appearances that we've ever encountered: Keanu Reeves. Yes, John Wick himself, in all his glory! As of now, we're not entirely sure as to what role he's going to play in the game, but we're assuming it's going to be a significant role, because why not? He's Keanu after all. © YouTube Honestly, we don't even care if his role is significant for the story or not. We're just glad that one of the biggest stars is a part of one of the most anticipated games of all time. In case you missed Microsoft's E3 briefing, then it's worth pointing out that Keanu was actually there on stage during the presentation to reveal Cyberpunk 2077's release date. Yes, Keanu actually appeared on stage to chat about the game. Before leaving, he revealed that CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 will release on April 16th, 2020. Yeah, we're still a long way from the game's official release date, but we are quite happy that we finally have a release date. Now, we just wait to see if we get to play alongside Keanu or against him!
  14. The year was 2006. As I sat writing my final exams for Class VI, the following question appeared on the paper: “Music is a language that transcends all boundaries.” Elaborate. Already prepared for a question like this (having our ears drilled by our teacher to the same effect), I started scribbling out the well-worded answer I had slogged over during the last few days. At age 11, one can hardly fathom the depth of William Wordsworth's eloquent words to define a song he heard a maiden sing in a mellifluous voice in a language he didn't understand. Perhaps like Mr Wordsworth who couldn't decipher the song in 'The Solitary Reaper'', my 2006 version was also unable to grasp the complexity of music. Thirteen years later, I can say that I have understood the true meaning of the question. Music is everywhere, you just need to the heart to perceive it: Birds chirping, the din of the market, TV Shows, movies, the clanging of vessels, the rhythmic clinking of the clock, the soft thumping of one's heart. I found out that my favourite kind of music was the one you could forget yourself into, like the score of a movie; the ethereal orchestral symphony which transcends you to a place where you can start envisioning the music. You and music become one, the notes seem to materialize in front of you, heal you. The cacophony of the world is forgotten. There is a fascinating charm to these scores; they are not mere theme setters for the movie. Movie scores exemplify and elevate important moments of the protagonist's life; be it Batman putting on his suit for the first time, or Nina finally turning into the Black Swan, or Rose finding love with Jack, or Frodo defeating Gollum once and for all. So, especially for you, here is a list of 21 best movie scores of all time: 1. The Dark Knight Trilogy (2005-2012): The fact that Hans Zimmer is a musical prodigy par excellence is no secret. And that his musical score for movies is heavenly is as trivial a detail as say: the Sun rises in the East. With Goth undertones, Mr Zimmer, along with James Newton Howard, makes Batman come alive in our minds with the intense score of the three movies, in this re-imagining of Batman as an anti-hero by Christopher Nolan, starring Christian Bale. (The Holy Trinity of Films: Nolan, Bale, and Zimmer). © Syncopy/Legendary Pictures/ Patalex III Productions/Warner Bros. Pictures The music has been composed in such a way that it connects you to Batman like never before; music which embodies the conflict Bruce faces, the dilemma of Batman, and the choices he has to make. Listening to it echoes a tremendously powerful emotion within. © Syncopy/Legendary Pictures/ Patalex III Productions/Warner Bros. Pictures Be it “A Storm is Coming”, with its menacing, ominous tone. Or the eerie “Why So Serious?”. The powerful “Rise” which awakens a part of your soul. Not to forget “Bane's Chant”. Goosebumps! A score that will haunt you even after you have finished watching the movies. And that is the brilliance of Hans Zimmer. 2. Sense and Sensibility (1995): Other than being a marvellous movie in itself, this Emma Thompson-written masterpiece of Jane Austen's novel, directed by Ang Lee, boasting of an extremely talented ensemble cast has one of the most soulful scores of all time. Patrick Doyle's genius shines through the melodic symphony of the entire soundtrack, engaging the viewer (and listener) to relate to the struggles of the characters, be it Marianne's lost love (Miss Grey) or her coming of age (Weep You No More Sad/The Dreame ), or the anticipation of meeting her suitor (Mr Willoughby) or Elinor's strolls through the gardens with Edward (My Father's Favorite). © Columbia Pictures/ Mirage Enterprises Nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Score, there's no doubt that it deserves the praise it has got; the way it changes from a dreamy fancy to a mellow elegy, to a more serious rendition as the movie progresses is beautifully indescribable. With a classical base, the music transports you to the countryside of England, as Elinor and Marianne navigate the atrocities of the elite English social life. 3. Beetlejuice (1988): Weird, eerie and perfect for a goofy movie with eccentric characters. With Tim Burton as director, you know it is going to be a crazy joyride. Add to it the musical mastermind of Danny Elfman, and it is the best of both worlds. © The Geffen Company/ Warner Bros. Pictures Quirky, with a calypso vibe, which perfectly replicates the madness on screen, it will make you dance to its whimsical tune! 4. Titanic (1997): Because our 'hearts will go on' till eternity! Romance personified, James Cameron's magnum opus' score by legendary composer James Horner is the reason why 'Titanic' makes you believe in love. Based on soft strings, violins, and the piano, the score has an ethereal beauty. © Paramount Pictures/ 20th Century Fox/ Lightstorm Entertainment A beatific score which makes you feel that you are in heaven; be it the romantic “Rose” which plays when Jack sees Rose for the first time (and leitmotifs all throughout), the travel vibes from “Never An Absolution”, or the uplifting notes of “Southampton”. As the story moves forward, the score's feeling of astonishment and joy is punctuated by the dark “Death of the Titanic”, a sad dirge when the ship meets its perilous fate. My heart always breaks when the orchestra plays “Nearer My God to Thee” while the bandleader, Wallace Hartley, bravely keeps playing, all the while knowing what lies ahead. Not to mention “My Heart Will Go On” by Céline Dion which has been a love anthem since the movie released. 5. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (2001-2003): Just one word: Marvelous! A truly fabulous score by music composer par brilliance, Howard Shore, who created a score so ingenious for all the three movies that it can hardly be compared to another. The music is fantasy personified; there are about about100 specially crafted leitmotifs which keep on changing in intonation and tempo. What is even more fascinating is that each theme corresponds to a particular culture of Middle-earth, just think about it! © New Line Cinema/ WingNut Films With over four years of conducting, writing, composing and orchestrating, this intricate, sweeping score is a labour of love; Shore's love child with music. Moreover, it is one of the greatest scores of all times with respect to its length, soloists, instrumentation, among other attributes. With its operatic sound and antiquated feeling, listening to the score is an indulgence in itself. Another enthralling thing about the score is its nuance: it doesn't just reflect the scene or doesn't only suggest the mood, it tells a story, narrates the drama underlying in the scene. If that isn't creative brilliance, I don't what is! 6. Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961): If it wasn't famous enough for its iconic fashion, courtesy of Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly, the music is another feather in the cap of this beautiful, beautiful movie. © Jurow-Shepherd/ Paramount Pictures Henry Mancini's melodious score is a romantic extravagance which makes you fall in love with it the minute you hear it. My personal favourite has to be “Moon River” (with lyrics by Johnny Mercer), especially the one Audrey Hepburn croons while sitting on the balcony. The opening scene where an instrumental “Moon River” plays, makes you feel a strange mix of emotions as Holly steps out of a cab, with a coffee and a Danish. (All hail Blake Edwards!) Longingly looking at the necklace showcased on Tiffany's store window, lazily munching on the Danish, Holly Golightly signifies all of us contemplating over our desires. © Jurow-Shepherd/ Paramount Pictures 7. Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope (1977): Iconic! Who hasn't heard to this legendary score? A score which literally gives “a new hope”. © Lucasfilm/ 20th Century Fox George Lucas' masterpiece, scored by composer John Williams, is a movie which is synonymous with the sci-fi revolution in cinema. But its musical theme is just as fabulous as the movie; a sound which makes you fill with nostalgia and hope. 8. Gladiator (2000): Ridley Scott's classic movie has an extremely powerful score which makes you feel as though you have stepped into the action of the Colosseum in Rome. © Scott Free Productions/ Red Wagon Entertainment/ Universal Pictures/ DreamWorks Pictures Another one of Hans Zimmer's creations, with vocals by Lisa Gerrard, the music encapsulates Maximus' struggles. The music is laced with heroism, with the score expositing the valiant efforts of Maximus as he fights his way as a Gladiator in Ancient Rome. “Elysium” has a penetrating feeling; it touches your heart in an intensely personal way. 9. Lawrence of Arabia (1962): An epic movie starring Peter O'Toole, directed by David Lean, based on one of history's game-changers, T.E. Lawrence. The main theme has a mystical quality about it; a mixture of Arabian Night-esque music, Western vibes, and military music. Maurice Jarre's musical genius shines throughout the score. It makes you feel you have travelled into the sandy deserts of the Middle East; you can envision the dunes, the camels, the caravans. Essentially, it mirrors the plot of the movie: the conflict between the Ottoman Turks and nomadic Arabian tribes (guided by T.E. Lawrence) resulting in a guerilla war during World War I. © Horizon Pictures/ Columbia Pictures Not only is the music great to hear, with its loud booming quality, but it is also visually appealing, and falls perfectly in line with the scene on screen: the rolling motion of caravans at a leisurely pace, pulled by camels, along the desert. The underlying bass line only intensifies the effect. The tambourine music in parts of the repetitions of the score adds to the exotic Middle Eastern charm. 10. Back to the Future (1985): One of the most iconic time-travel centric sci-fi movies of all time, 'Back to the Future's' main theme echoes an adventurous, futuristic vibe. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, 'Back to the Future' is one of the most famous movies of the 80s, marking the second of multiple collaborations between Robert Zemeckis and Alan Silvestri (who would go on to become one of the most illustrious composers of the era). © Amblin Entertainment/ Universal Pictures The fanfare is perhaps the most recognized of movie themes; just the right amount of heroic and quirky! Also, the soundtrack has gems like “The Power of Love” (by Huey Lewis and the News) and “Johnny B. Goode” (by Chuck Berry), which are trendsetting songs in their own right! All aboard The DeLorean! 11. The Godfather (1972): Everything about 'The Godfather' is epic: the novel, the movies, and the music. Francis Ford Coppola's crowning glory was scored by Italian composer Nino Rota who is responsible for the legendary 'The Godfather Waltz'. © Alfran Productions/ Paramount Pictures Borrowing from his previously scored movie, 'Fortunella', Nino elevated the Italian feel of the music in 'The Godfather', capturing the misfortune of the characters thus invoking a tragic vibe in the score. 'The Godfather Waltz' and 'Love Theme from The Godfather' are a testament to the previous fact and to the ingenuity of Nino Rota's musical dexterity. 'The Pickup' captures the gangster theme of the movie with its bouncy, ominous feel. 12. Harry Potter (The First Three Movies) (2001-2004): Magical, mysterious and haunting. A trip down memory lane with this gem of a score, composed by John Williams. © Warner Bros. Pictures/ Heyday Films 'Hedwig's Theme' is always a tearjerker, with its plaintive notes emoting Harry's loneliness which slowly turns into a merry, elevating melody echoing Harry's entrée into the wizarding world. Will I cry when I hear it? Always. 13. Avengers: Endgame (2019): A fairly new movie on the list but kudos to Alan Silvestri's prowess as a composer who can wield magic with the conductor's baton (his personal Mjölnir, if you will), this movie's soundtrack has surpassed its predecessors while keeping the nostalgia intact. Sweeping, powerful and intense, the music sets the perfect tone for the finale of the Avengers franchise. Be it the war sequence, Captain America finally lifting the Mjölnir, the appearance of the heroes left behind (Portals), or the final Snap (The Real Hero), the score effortlessly manages to pull you in. © Marvel Studios/ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures 'Whatever it Takes' touches you in ways you couldn't imagine, making you nostalgic about the sacrifices all the Avengers have made to reach here. My personal favourite is the jazzy 'It's Been A Long, Long Time' by Harry James (sung by Kitty Kallen) which plays as the movie comes to an end. Such a beautiful way to say goodbye! And such a satisfying visual to accompany it! 14. Requiem for a Dream (2000): A trippy movie with a hauntingly eerie soundtrack which makes you lose your mind (in a good way!). Darren Aronofsky's unconventional film about unfulfilled human desires is made more compelling by its theme, scored by Clint Mansell, ostentatiously using György Ligeti's “Lux Aeterna” in most parts. © Thousand Words/ Protozoa Pictures/ Artisan Entertainment The score is ominous, a bit tenebrous (a quality of Aronofsky's movies) and intentionally raw. The music plays an important role in the life of the characters, mirroring their cravings and addictions, and the extent they'll go for it. 15. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968): Another groundbreaking sci-fi movie, directed by eccentric genius Stanley Kubrick who (in)famously scrapped all the music created by Alex North for the movie (without informing him), was scored entirely by classical music. © Stanley Kubrick Productions/ Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Stanley Kubrick decided to go with legendary classical pieces: Richard Strauss' poem 'Also Sprach Zarathustra', the waltz “The Blue Danube” by Johann Strauss II, and “Lux Aeterna” by György Ligeti, which have since become synonymous with the movie in such a way that it is impossible to think about 2001 without “The Blue Danube” playing in your mind. His reason was that he wanted his movie to be more of an aural sensory experience, not reliant on dialogue or verbal cues, thus using grand, majestic, soulful compositions from the classical past of music. Needless to say, the peculiar decision did turn out well for the movie. 16. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982): John Williams scores (no pun intended) again with the music of this adorable movie directed by Steven Spielberg. It captures the essence of childhood: the innocence, the sense of wonder, the inquisitiveness in all of us at that age. It has an emotional feel to it which strikes a chord with the old and young alike, igniting long-forgotten memories. © Amblin Entertainment/ Universal Pictures The best part of the score has to be the flying bicycle(“Flying”)! Joy, amazement, and fun all rolled into the music. And the music for the farewell brings out tears. Every. Single. Time. “E. T. Phone Home!” More like, “E.T. Don't Phone Home!” 17. Gone With The Wind (1939): Scarlett O'Hara's trials and tribulations find their expression in the music of the movie. Scored by Max Steiner, one of the greatest of composers in the Golden Age of Cinema, the score is sufficiently heartbreaking while being majestic in its own right. © Loew's Inc./ Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/ Selznick International Pictures The score is instrumental in charting out the character development; a distinguishing quality of Mr Steiner's work. They don't make them like that anymore! Because “frankly, my dear, they don't give a damn!” about music anymore. 18. Schindler's List (1993): Composed and conducted by John Williams (such a gifted treasure of a man), marking another collaboration with Steven Spielberg, Schindler List's score is a poignant experience. © Amblin Entertainment/ Universal Pictures Sad and melancholy, it voices the underlying distress and the terrible misfortune of Krakow. 19. Jurassic Park (1993): A score which has become tantamount to peak 90s and dinosaurs, composed by John Williams (again!), is a treat for the ears. © Amblin Entertainment/ Universal Pictures The score encapsulates the miracle of seeing something so unusual that you can't comprehend it through the main theme, then going to amazement and surprise in “Journey to the Island” and capturing the menace when the park turns rogue, with the rest of the score. 20. The Pink Panther (1963): Henry Mancini unleashes his musical genius in a funny way through “The Pink Panther” (another Blake Edwards masterpiece). © Mirisch Company/ United Artists The dubious, cartoony theme from the movie is perhaps as famous as the Taj Mahal and the most overused in movies which want to portray a comical investigation. The theme comprises a saxophone tenor which has over time become its most discerning quality. The score is funny, wacky and as quirky as the lead character, Jacques Clouseau (superbly played by Peter Sellers). The slapstick feel of the movie, the spry tone is effectively embodied by the score. 21. Goldfinger (1964): Do we really need an explanation for this? :P One of the most famous and iconic themes of all time. Shirley Bassey's vocals add to the drama to the music which has become synonymous with the spy thriller series, giving a nod to its sister theme. © Eon Productions/ United Artists 'Goldfinger', with its brassy, jazzy vibe, is one of the best pieces of music in the entire soundtrack of the James Bond movies. Mr Bond's suave sexiness is personified by the legendary theme. Thank you, John Barry! So, which is your favourite? Tell us in the comments!

  16. A few years ago, if we'd have told you that circus animals would be replaced with holograms, you'd have laughed at our faces. But what if we told you that now it's a reality and the Circus Roncalli in Germany actually replaced real animals with holograms to entertain people? Yes, it's just as awesome as it sounds. Here, check it out - Replacing real animals with holograms is a great idea because it's important that we treat animals fairly and fight against animal cruelty. The Circus Roncalli in Germany was set up in 1976 and it's quite awesome to see such an old circus trying to be a pioneer in the fight against animal abuse. So, the circus uses holograms to add animals to their performances with the help of eleven projectors set up across the venue. They have performing animals such as elephants, horses, monkeys, and even fish. They do look very realistic, don't they? © YouTube It's also worth pointing out that the circus made history by becoming the first to replace real animals with holograms. Not only are they putting across a great message to stop animals cruelty, but the circus authorities are also saving a lot of money in the process, since they don't really have animals to feed or transport. Obviously, not everyone will enjoy this, but it's indeed a creative way to showcase what technology can achieve and how it can benefit mankind. Now, let's hope this act will serve as an inspiration to others and we get to see more creative ways of delivering good entertainment.
  17. Here's some excellent news for all animal lovers across the board. The Haryana and Punjab High Court has declared the title of “legal person or entity” to animals in Haryana, granting them the “corresponding rights, duties and liabilities of a living person” and we can't help but feel absolutely elated with this piece of information. (c) Pintrest The ruling has come out nearly a year after the Uttarakhand High Court passed a similar order “to protect and promote greater welfare of animals”. And guess why? Because both the orders were written and passed by Justice Rajiv Sharma, who was transferred from the Uttarakhand High Court to the Punjab & Haryana High Court in Chandigarh. “The corporations, Hindu idols, holy scriptures, rivers have been declared legal entities and thus, in order to protect and promote greater welfare of animals including avian and aquatic, animals are required to be conferred with the status of legal entity/ legal person” - Justice Rajiv Sharma (c) Twitter Justice Rajiv Sharma This is a fantastic stance taken towards animal welfare in the country and we hope things take a turn for the better where wildlife and animals laws are concerned, all over. “The animals should be healthy, comfortable, well nourished, safe, able to express innate behaviour without pain, fear and distress. They are entitled to justice. The animals cannot be treated as objects or property,” the verdict states. That is indeed true. Which means, no animals are now to be found carrying heavy weight, any weight that burdens them or be used for sheer entertainment or even stuffed into a vehicle, that may bring them grave discomfort or ill-health. This is what we need to implement in smaller towns, where animals are treated like a sheer commodity and nothing else. Among the guidelines that were issued by this verdict, the Justice Bench headed by Justice Sharma directed the Haryana Government that draught animals will not carry more than the prescribed weight while pulling a vehicle. The bench also said vehicles like bullock carts, camel carts and even horse carts need to put florescent reflectors at the front and back of the cart, so that they can be seen better, while travelling after sunset. (c)Twitter “All the citizens throughout the state of Haryana are hereby declared persons in loco parentis (meaning – in the place of a parent) as the human face for the welfare/protection of animals.” - Justice Rajiv Sharma We're very grateful towards this verdict and we truly hope more such rules are implemented for animals, for their wellbeing across the country.
  18. Battle Royale games like PUBG Mobile and Fortnite, as we all know, hit mobile gamers hard. With over millions of active players, these titles are still going strong even after all these years. Well, if you're tired of playing the same old battle royale titles, or if you're planning to get aboard the battle royale hype train, then we've got some amazing options. Let's check them out - 1) Crossfire Legends If you like PUBG Mobile, then you'll most likely enjoy Crossfire Legends too. It's a fantastic game and it's developed by Tencent, the guys who made PUBG Mobile. Just like PUBG Mobile, Crossfire Legends' BR mode also lets you dive into a solo, duo or a squad game. Crossfire Legends got great weapons and amazing visuals, so it's definitely worth checking out. In addition to the BR mode, this particular game also offers a few different modes such as Team Deathmatch, Mutant mode, and more. Availability: Android & iOS 2) Call Of Duty: Mobile This one's a fairly new game. Heck, it's not even available for all users, but it's still worth adding to the list. Call of Duty: Mobile, though it's only available for select registered users, has gained a lot of traction. It's got a Battle Royale mode, Team Deathmatch, etc. Call of Duty: Mobile differentiates itself as a tactical shooter, making it one of the very titles out there offering a tactical shooting experience. We've already put up a detailed write up explaining about the key differences from PUBG Mobile and you can check it out right here. In case you haven't tried the game yet, here's how you sideload the game and play it right now. Availability: Android & iOS 3) Fortnite Fortnite is in-part responsible for creating the battle royale hype, so we had to add this to the mix. Unlike PUBG Mobile, this one's a super stable game and a lot of fun to play. Although Fortnite is a battle royale title, the gameplay is slightly different. The only downside to the game is that it's not available on the Google Play Store, so you'll have to get it from the Epic Launcher. It's available directly from the App Store though. Availability: Android & iOS 4) PUBG Mobile Well, lastly we have PUBG Mobile. Yes, the game that popularised the Battle Royale genre. The game lets you jump off to an island with 99 other players and get into an epic battle to get the 'Chicken Dinner'. The game has a bunch of different weapons, looks great, and even works on phones with not-so-powerful specs. One of the best things about this game is that it's constantly updated with new skins, items, etc., so there's always something to look forward to. Give it a try if you haven't already, but keep your play time in check. Availability: Android & iOS
  19. Yesterday's swearing-in ceremony was quite eventful, but one of the biggest things everyone realized was Sushma Swaraj won't be a part of the Modi Government 2.0. The much loved former Minister of External Affairs of India did not take part in the Lok Sabha elections this year but people still had hopes that she would get a nomination for Rajya Sabha and become a part of the Cabinet. But, looks like following some health troubles, she won't be a part of the new government. Thanking PM Narendra Modi in a tweet for giving her the opportunity to serve the people of the country for five years, she said - पà¥à¤°à¤§à¤¾à¤¨ मà¤à¤¤à¥à¤°à¥ à¤à¥ - à¤à¤ªà¤¨à¥ 5 वरà¥à¤·à¥à¤ तठमà¥à¤à¥ विदà¥à¤¶ मà¤à¤¤à¥à¤°à¥ à¤à¥ तà¥à¤° पर दà¥à¤¶à¤µà¤¾à¤¸à¤¿à¤¯à¥à¤ à¤à¤° पà¥à¤°à¤µà¤¾à¤¸à¥ भारतà¥à¤¯à¥à¤ à¤à¥ सà¥à¤µà¤¾ à¤à¤°à¤¨à¥ à¤à¤¾ मà¥à¤à¤¾ दिया à¤à¤° पà¥à¤°à¥ à¤à¤¾à¤°à¥à¤¯à¤à¤¾à¤² मà¥à¤ वà¥à¤¯à¤à¥à¤¤à¤¿à¤à¤¤ तà¥à¤° पर भॠबहà¥à¤¤ समà¥à¤®à¤¾à¤¨ दिया. मà¥à¤ à¤à¤ªà¤à¥ पà¥à¤°à¤¤à¤¿ बहà¥à¤¤ à¤à¤­à¤¾à¤°à¥ हà¥à¤. हमारॠसरà¤à¤¾à¤° बहà¥à¤¤ यशसà¥à¤µà¤¿à¤¤à¤¾ सॠà¤à¤²à¥, पà¥à¤°à¤­à¥ सॠमà¥à¤°à¥ यहॠपà¥à¤°à¤¾à¤°à¥à¤¥à¤¨à¤¾ हà¥. — Sushma Swaraj (@SushmaSwaraj) May 30, 2019 This was followed by a lot of heartfelt messages, thanking her for all that she's done these past few years.

Ab passpost ka matter hua toh kisko tag karna? — Sagar (@sagarcasm) May 30, 2019 People loved her a lot. The country will miss you in the cabinet . You brought in emotions and values to a ministry which always seemed so clinical! — Priyanka Chaturvedi (@priyankac19) May 30, 2019 Exactly. Govts may change, the cabinet may change, but Sushma Swaraj will go down as the most likeable cabinet ministers India has ever had.

I choked. pic.twitter.com/TVwqUC2Rxe — Gabbbar (@GabbbarSingh) May 30, 2019 So many 'miss you' messages.

A person who is not even in cabinet these time. India is surely gonna miss you mam @SushmaSwaraj you were one of the best foreign minister India has ever witnessed, it would be too tough for the new person to follow your legacy..#ModiReturns #sushmaswaraj pic.twitter.com/7Pxcavzw9y — Manthan Shah (@ShahManthan89) May 30, 2019 She should've been. Why isn't #SushmaSwaraj part of the cabinet? She was by far one of the most effective and efficient ministers in the #ModiSarkar!#SwearinginCeremony — Aniket Pargaonkar ð®ð³ (@aniketsp) May 30, 2019 Yep. I did not realize (until 2 mins back) that #SushmaSwaraj @SushmaSwaraj is not swearing in, which means she will not be a part of #ModiSarkar2 I'm so disappointed because she was one of the best MEA India had.

  21. The world of Netflix is an endless menu that never satiates our appetite. This week, in case you're looking for a little something to binge-watch that catches your fancy and keeps you interested, then allow us to recommend you 'Dead To Me', a dark comedy which depicts life in odd situations and is very real and raw in parts. The brilliant series stars Linda Candellini and Christina Applegate in the leads as Judy and Jen, respectively. The story is simple when you look at it. Jen is a widow who is frustrated with life after her husband Ted dies in a hit-and-run accident and she can't cope with dealing with life as a single mother and is looking for Ted's killer. Then comes Judy who is an over-enthusiastic, super optimistic and suspiciously sacchariferous to the eye. They eventually become friends and Judy helps Jen cope with the loss. It's neither a mush drama, nor is it a soppy soap opera. Together the two women learn to pick each other up and face life, one day at a time. However, there is a looming secret about Jen's dead husband Ted and another stomach-curling revelation which you find out in the first episode only, and that will change your perception about how you perceive the characters completely. People on the internet are absolutely loving it. I watched the first episode of #Deadtome on Netflix yesterday and IT GOT MEEEEEEEE. By the end of the episode was like pic.twitter.com/RlITJWuYJR — RAVEN B. (@RAVIEB) May 23, 2019 Also, Dead To Me, on Netflix is a fucking triumph. Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini are infinitely watchable, the show balances darkness and humor on the edge of a razor, and I am dying to see what happens next. If you haven't watched it yet, do it now — elan gale (@theyearofelan) May 22, 2019 Just started binge-watching #DeadToMe thinking it was a comedy. Then it's a dark comedy. Now it's a mystery?This show has me laughing on the edge of my seat. Also, I want to write down quotes to work into my real life. Is that wrong?#netflix https://t.co/bgcjqMKMN9 — eleni (@elenikoko2) May 25, 2019 The show is sometimes eerily real, so much that it makes you laugh and you kind of feel bad when you laugh on something you really shouldn't, because it will make you look at yourself and say 'that's me' and you won't feel great about it, but then you're only human. It also has a very 'YOU' vibe to it (another brilliant stalker drama on Netflix) and makes you think about who you can really trust. With 10 interesting episodes, this can be your weekend binge.
  22. Over the last few years, Creatine has gained a lot of popularity amongst athletes and fitness enthusiast. With this surge in popularity, supplement manufacturers have also started offering various forms of Creatine. They claim that these other forms have different usage and some even claim that they are even more effective than the regular Creatine Monohydrate. © Getty Images In this article, I will tell you why the traditional Creatine Monohydrate still remains the best choice as compared to other options available in the market. The other options in which creatine is available these days are the following:- Creatine Ethyl Ester Liquid Creatine Creatine Hydrochloride Creatine Magnesium Chelate Now, let's see why Creatine Monohydrate still beats the other contenders? 1. Better Research Data Available Than Others – At least hundreds of studies have been conducted on the effectiveness of Creatine till date. It is interesting to know that around 90 per cent of them were conducted on Monohydrate only. Only a handful of studies have been conducted on other forms of Creatine out of which only a few of them were conducted on humans. Thus, it won't be wrong to say that conclusive evidence for the effectiveness of creatine is not available for any other form except for Monohydrate. 2. Monohydrate Form Is More Effective Than Others – Creatine Monohydrate has proven to be effective in increasing the strength, power, muscle mass and overall exercise performance in athletes and trained individuals. © Getty Images When Creatine Monohydrate in powdered form was compared to liquid and other forms, the results were not similar. In a study conducted by the Department of Health, Human Performance and Recreation USA it was established that Creatine Monohydrate is better absorbed and effective than ethyl ester and other liquid forms of creatine. In another study conducted by The Centre for Sport and Exercise Science, New Zealand, a group of cyclists who consumed Creatine Monohydrate in powdered form was able to increase their performance by ten per cent and the group that consume liquid creatine had no changes in their performance levels. 3. Better Availability – Creatine Monohydrate is easily available as compared to other forms of creatine in the market. Almost every supplement company manufactures it and you can easily find it in any random supplement store and online stores as well. On the other hand, there are only a few manufacturers who manufacture creatine hydrochloride or liquid creatine. Due to limited demand, manufacturers and distributors have limited supply with them. In fact, this is one of the reasons that you find hydrochloride and other forms of creatine as a blend with various pre-workout brands. They are added to the ingredient profile to make the product sound better than others. © Getty Images 4. Cost-Effective – Creatine Monohydrate is one of the cheapest supplement available in the market. It's per serving cost is the lowest as compared to any other supplement as well as any other form of creatine. Since other forms of Creatine have less demand, their supply is less and hence come at a higher price than monohydrate.

  23. As soon as Ranveer Singh was roped in to play the main man behind India's first ever Cricket World Cup Win in 1983 - Kapil Dev, we had geared up for another solid sports biopic. Ranveer has had an amazing couple of years, with huge, successful movies like 'Padmaavat' and 'Gully Boy' under his belt, and it's only natural for us to be excited for his unique role in '1983'. He is known to completely throw himself into the process of 'becoming the character', something that sets him apart in Bollwood. For '1983', he needs to become the captain of the team, and he has been spending time with Kapil Dev for that very reason. Take a look. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on May 24, 2019 at 9:30pm PDT What we found noteworthy was the effortless style both these gentlemen were exuding, despite being in their most basic attires. While Ranveer wore a plain white T-shirt, Kapil Dev looked dapper in his usual fare - the plain white shirt. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on May 24, 2019 at 9:31pm PDT They prove that basic attires like summer staples that are extremely comfortable, are terribly underrated. One simply can never go wrong with them, irrespective of the occasion.

  24. Well, even with thousands of streaming websites these days, some of them manage to stand apart with just one show that the entire world is watching. I feel like so many people took Hotstar memberships especially for 'Game of Thrones' and well, that will cause some jealousy among other websites. But, this time, that jealousy just turned into a fun banter, giving us a rare and hilarious exchange between Hotstar and Netflix India. It all started with Netflix India's tweet about the checklist of a true relationship. We hang out every weekend. We eat all our meals together. Your parents know about us. Hate to break it to you, but we may be in a serious relationship. — Netflix India (@NetflixIndia) May 23, 2019 Almost everyone is in a relationship with Netflix then, oops. Probably the longest and most stable relationship as well. While we're on the topic, someone decided to confess their infidelity. We need to talk. I have been cheating on you with @HotstarPremium ð — à¤®à¤°à¤¾à¤ à¥ à¤®à¤¾à¤£à¥à¤¸ (@marathimanu) May 23, 2019 Oh no, things are heating up. Hotstar came in to rub it in even more. Sorry, not sorry. :) — Hotstar Premium (@HotstarPremium) May 23, 2019 Then comes Netflix with a rebuttal, sounding very subtly sexual. We don't mind you experimenting with a hot star but they'd never make you stream like we do. — Netflix India (@NetflixIndia) May 23, 2019 Well, did Hotstar win this round? I can't tell. Insecure. . . Now streaming: https://t.co/Enbi7ENxst — Hotstar Premium (@HotstarPremium) May 23, 2019 There's more stuff happening. That's just for starters. pic.twitter.com/dSPXOMXXuR — Hotstar Premium (@HotstarPremium) May 23, 2019 Brands interacting with each other online is always funny and well, this exchange was just hilarious. Looks like people handling the Twitter accounts deserve a raise ASAP.
  25. Gaming laptops have gotten a lot better over time. Some of the laptops like the Alienware Area 51m are so powerful, that you can even replace your desktop with them and get stellar performance. But you don't always have to spend a fortune to get a decent gaming laptop. There are a ton of options out there and here are some good ones that are worth checking out: 1) MSI GL63 8RC © YouTube MSI has been making gaming laptops for a long time and they have a lot of options ranging from budget notebooks to really expensive devices. The MSI GL63 8RC, which we have here in this list, falls under the budget category. It's priced at Rs. 55,990, and it's a really good option for those who're looking to dip their toes in gaming. This particular variant of the MSI GL63 8RC is powered by Intel's Core i5 8th-gen CPU and it's coupled with 8GB of RAM. It sports a 15.6-inch FHD TN panel on the front, which is one of the best panels out there. This base variant of the laptop boasts a GTX 1050 Ti, which should be good enough to play even some of the modern AAA titles at medium to high settings. Price: Rs. 55,990 2) Acer Nitro 5 © YouTube Acer's Nitro series is very popular among budget PC gamers, as it offers a decent rig at a reasonable price. Much like the MSI GL series laptop, the Acer Nitro 5 is also powered by an 8th gen Intel Core i5 coupled with 8GB of RAM. It also boasts a GTX 1050Ti GPU, which is a great entry-level GPU. The Acer Nitro 5 also sports a 15.6-inch IPS anti-glare display, which is just about what you can expect from an entry-level laptop. If you can stretch your budget a little, then you can also check out the Acer Predator Helios 300. It's a little more expensive, but it's said to have better thermal management. Price: Rs. 55,990 3) ASUS TUF Ryzen 5 © YouTube ASUS, much like MSI, is known for making some really good gaming laptops. Their new TUF series of gaming laptops are just perfect for gamers who are on a budget. This particular variant which we have here is powered by an AMD Ryzen CPU. The ASUS TUF Ryzen 5, as the name suggests, is powered by a quad-core Ryzen 5-3550H CPU clocked at 3.7Ghz. It has 8GB of RAM and features a Radeon RX 560X GPU to power through your games. This is also the only laptop in the list that sports a 17.3-inch 60Hz IPS panel. So if you are looking for a bigger laptop, then the ASUS TUF powered by the Ryzen is worth checking out. It costs just a little over our set budget of Rs. 60,000. Price: Rs. 60,890 4) HP Pavilion 15 © HP This one, in particular, doesn't have a gaming DNA, at least when it comes to the looks, but it still packs enough power to run modern games at decent graphics settings. It sports a 15.6-inch FHD anti-glare display and it boasts a GTX 1050 GPU. It's an entry-level GPU with 4GB VRAM, but it can still handle most modern AAA titles at decent settings. It is powered by an 8th Gen Intel Core i5 processor and it packs 8GB of RAM and 1TB HDD. The fact the HP Pavilion 15 Core doesn't have flashy RGB and an obnoxious design makes it a very compelling option for most people. Price: Rs. 59, 990
