  1. If you were to tell me that the Hitman series would become one of my favourite stealth games of all time, I would not take you seriously. However, that’s exactly what IO interactive has managed to achieve with the third and final instalment of the modern Hitman series. I’ve been craving a Splinter Cell-like stealth game all of the last generation and Hitman 3 fulfilled my needs this time. Previous titles in the franchise were a bit goofy and lacked a compelling narrative that makes me care about the franchise. However, with Hitman 3, IO Interactive has managed to turn all of that around and delivered a Hitman game that also has a great storyline. © IO Interactive The Hitman series’ formula has not changed much from a decade ago, however the new games offer more freedom than ever before. Hitman 3 has a total of six missions and it's up to you how you want to go about them. Each mission starts with a briefing in the style of a Mission: Impossible movie and the first level even seems inspired by Ghost Protocol. While six missions may not sound like a great deal, each mission can be replayed to death with countless variables or styles of play. You can also play different levels in different modes to amp up the difficulty or completely change how a level can be played again. © IO Interactive To spice things up, IO Interactive have also included a level set in an old family mansion where you have to solve a murder mystery. You get to check out the secret passages and disguise yourself as a detective or sleuth. It is a big departure from Hitman’s traditional mechanics and how levels play out but we liked how it shakes up the traditional style of playing Hitman is known for. Every mission is different from each other and has been designed with painstaking detail, giving you the freedom to approach it in every manner possible. You can poison your target, go in guns blazing or come up with creative ways to eliminate your target. Much like thriller movies, the game takes you to different parts of the world with each mission. The first missions take place in a glamourous Dubai skyscraper while in another you might find yourself in a nightclub in Berlin. Each level offers something new that makes you want to replay missions and approach them differently each time. Each mission offers a different level of immersion that I truly did not expect from a Hitman game. IO Interactive has managed to craft levels that will be remembered until the franchise makes a return. © IO Interactive As we mentioned before, Hitman 3 is a huge departure from previous games where it tones down the goofiness and takes itself seriously. There’s an overarching story here which takes the game back to its roots instead of being a sandbox game. The story is quite intriguing and very much in line with spy movies you may have seen in the past decade. The plot of the game is mostly enjoyable, but some of the conspiracy tropes were quite predictable. Nevertheless, it still is a great story to experience in the end as it ends Agent 47’s story on a high note. © IO Interactive When it comes to the game mechanics, Hitman 3 has not expanded much, probably because there was nothing left to fix. The “don't fix it if it ain't broke” idiom is perfectly applicable here as every mechanic from the starting of the franchise is at your disposal here. While I would have liked to see some new gadgets thrown into the mix, we only get a smart camera that aids in achieving objectives, surveying your surroundings and solving puzzles. The new gadget doesn’t reinvent the wheel in any way or form, however it is a welcome addition to your arsenal. Apart from the new gadget addition, Hitman 3 is still very much a stealth game where you have to focus on sneaking past people, change disguises if suspected and hide bodies in closets like the previous game. It’s very much a sequel to Hitman 2 in terms of gameplay but this time around there is focus on the story as well. While the formula largely remains the same, you will experience some twists and unexpected moments that show us what future Hitman games can become. The Final VerdictHitman 3 is probably the best game in the new trilogy that puts more focus on the story while keeping the gameplay mechanics true to its roots. From exhilarating levels to beautiful graphics and a compelling story, Hitman 3 is the perfect send-off any franchise could get. View the full article
  2. Sharad Kelkar is riding a high tide, thanks to a series of back to back stellar performances. When it comes to style, here again, Sharad has been hitting all the right notes, and boy, do we love his sense of style. © Viral Bhayani Recently, Sharad was spotted at the Mumbai Airport with his family, where he gave us a great sartorial example of just how awesome dad fashion can be. His backpack, however, was what stood out; the backpack was a statement piece. © Viral Bhayani But first, let’s have a look at his outfit. Sharad was seen wearing a rather dope and understated outfit that had a very laidback aesthetic to itself. Sharad was seen wearing a zipped hoodie from Superdry, pair of denims, and a pair of hiking boots. © Viral Bhayani We actually kinda dig the dark colour theme that he went for. It sits really well with the cap, and that mask, again in black, as well as those brown shades. © Viral Bhayani We particularly like the manner in which he has paired his upper with his lowers. The minimalistic, but seemingly haphazard branding of the Superdry hoodie, along with those dad jeans is dope indeed. © Viral Bhayani That, when paired with those chunky looking hiking boots from Columbia Sportswear, is dope indeed. © Viral Bhayani Coming to the crown of the outfit, we see that Sharad is carrying a rather understated backpack. Don’t be fooled though, because it is anything, but understated. © Viral Bhayani Sharad is seen carrying a rather exquisite piece from Louis Vuitton. The particular backpack that he is seen carrying here is an iteration of their Campus Backpack, and boy oh boy, is it something to behold. © Louis Vuitton The bag is made mostly of a specially treated leather, which gives it a very particular kind of sheen. Thanks to the leather’s treatment, it comes only in one colour. Along with the exquisute leather, the bag also has silver-coated zippers. © Hypebeast All these premium materials means that the bag is astronomically priced. It retails for just over $2,800 in the US, which means that in Indian Rupees, it would set your bank balance back, by almost Rs 2.04 Lakhs. © Louis Vuitton Add to that your regular import duties and taxes if you were to buy this piece in India, and you’re looking at roughly another Rs 80,000 being added to the price. That’s Rs 2.84 Lakhs, for those who hated maths. © Viral Bhayani Now, this isn’t the most expensive backpack that we have seen, but it is one of the dopest ones. All we can say is, way to go Sharad, that is one heck of an outfit. View the full article

  4. The one piece of news that might bring joy to your heart today is that the Khalsa Aid, known for its wonderful humanitarian work across the globe, has been recognised by literally everyone on this planet and has now been officially nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by a Canadian MP named Tim Uppal. The organization shared this ‘deeply humbling’ piece of update on their social media and thanked their volunteers for the constant support. NOBLE PEACE PRIZE NOMINATION FOR KHALSA AID Canadian MP @TimUppal , Mayor of Brampton @patrickbrownont & the MPP for Brampton South, @PrabSarkaria have officially nominated Khalsa Aid for the Noble Peace Prize ! We are deeply humbled by this nomination. 🏻 https://t.co/7insV2XT00 — ravinder singh (@RaviSinghKA) January 17, 2021 Obviously, the Twitter feed is filled with ONLY positive vibes and messages to this heart-warming news. What a beautiful news after so many days. Well deserved ♥️ — Prabhjot Kour (@DrPrabhjot7) January 17, 2021 Very well timed.. something which was needed the most especially this time.🏻thankyou sir — Aman sidhu (@Amansid07964665) January 17, 2021 Khalsa Aid is one of those NGO's that needs an international level recognition for their work — Diltaz preet (@Diltaz_) January 18, 2021 Khalsa Aid is a non-profit organisation which was founded in 1999 by Ravi Singh and has been providing help and aid in civil conflict & disaster prone zones across the globe for over two decades now. The organisation has been instrumental in providing aid in India through every natural and man made calamity we've experienced in this country. Khalsa Aid is also the first ever cross-border international humanitarian organisation based on the Sikh principle of ' recognizing the whole human race as one'. It is actually ironic that an organisation which has been globally recognised for its wonderful work was infact summoned by the NIA in ties with a recent case registered against the SFJ, an organisation known to support pro-Khalistani activities . It is actually strange that the Khalsa Aid has never been previously summoned in India for anything like this when its volunteers were tirelessly helping people during the floods, or for building roads or for literally helping people survive in areas which were disaster prone. Only a Sikh charity could be investigated by a national superpower as a terror org in the same week they are nominated for a Nobel Peace prize. Putting fear into tyrants and helping humanity at the same time, this is the way of the Khalsa! Well done @Khalsa_Aid!#DhanGuruNanak pic.twitter.com/Gm2Il2BhPU — Jasveer Singh (@JazzTheJourno) January 18, 2021 It's a very proud thing for us But! At the same time they are summoned by NIA. Shows dirty politics of India.#WomenFarmersAgainstFarmLaws #ArnabExposedPulwama — HARKEERAT SINGH ‍♂️ (@HARKEERATSAMRA) January 18, 2021 The founder of Khalsa Aid, Ravi Singh is a British resident and founded it with the simple idea of taking the Sikh concept of ‘langar’ across the globe and in the hope that helping each other instil humanity in people. In 2016, the BBC made a documentary on him titled The Selfless Sikh, and it documented his journey to the north of Iraq where he helped the Yazidi families. While he has received many accolades and awards for his efforts, the Nobel Peace Prize will be the best award to honour the beautiful efforts of the Khalsa Aid. However, nothing tops the love, blessings and the good wishes that pour from the hearts of literally everyone in the world for them. View the full article
  5. For most of you, grooming perhaps is an extremely important part of your daily routine. However, that doesn’t mean skincare stays at the forefront. Just like your beard and shaving, your skin needs regular care too. For those of you who are new to skincare, it’s all about using the right ingredients to treat your skin problems. This means that before even beginning your journey, you need to identify your skin type. In case you already know your skin type, it’s time to move on to the next step - the right skincare ingredients for your skin type. Keep reading and improve your skin in a jiffy! How To Recognise Your Skin Type ?Before seeing the best skincare ingredients for your skin type, it’s important that you know what your skin type is. There are four major skin types - normal, dry, oily and combination skin. If your skin is oily overall and tends to become shiny very often, your skin type is oily. If your skin is dry and flakey, you have a dry skin type. If your skin is neither too dry nor too oily, you have normal skin. If your skin is oily in the T-zone and dry elsewhere, you have a combination skin. Now that you know your skin type, let’s go through the best skincare ingredients for your skin type. __ECOMLOOKS__2434__ __ECOMLOOKS__2435__ __ECOMLOOKS__2436__ __ECOMLOOKS__2437__ The Bottomline It’s very important to know your skin type and the best ingredients for your skin. Skincare is all about the right ingredients, so make sure to do your research well. We have mentioned the best ingredients for your skin type, however, there are thousands of more ingredients out there. All with different purposes and for different results. Go ahead and begin your skincare journey! Explore More View the full article
  6. After WhatsApp issued forceful new terms of service; many users around the world have started to switch to alternative messaging apps. However, many wonders which one to switch i.e. Telegram or Signal. Both messaging apps are great for users who are looking for an alternative but they aren’t equally the same when it comes to privacy. For users who cherish their privacy the most; we compare the two major alternatives that users should know about. 1. Disappearing Messages © Reuters Most chat leaks happened either via cloud backups or by screenshots captured by other users. While neither of the apps has any protection from screenshots; they both feature disappearing messages in case you don’t want people to capture screenshots of your texts. Telegram and Signal, both offer this feature and even lets the message sender set a duration for how long to display messages before they're deleted. This is a very nifty feature to have if you want to keep your conversations private and not let peeping toms screenshot what you are saying. 2. Encryption © Playstore This is where both applications differ from each other. On Signal, all texts and calls have end-to-end encryption by default. However, in the case of Telegram, only secret chats have the same level of encryption and do not extend to regular chats. On Signal, you can even relay your calls via Signal servers so that you don’t have to expose your IP address to the caller. This is by far the biggest difference when it comes to message encryption between the two. If you really want to protect your messages and data; Signal seems like a better choice. 3. Backups © christian-wiediger Most leaks happen via chat backup and in order to protect yourself from these problems, Signal offers a better solution than Telegram. Signal only lets people take a local backup of their chats on the smartphone and does not use the cloud whereas on Telegram; it uses cloud backup for your text and call logs. Having said that, local backups can be a double-edged sword as if you lose your phone; you will also lose your chat history along with it. 4. Data Collection © Telegram In the case of data collection, Telegram does collect basic information such as name, phone number, contacts and user ID. However, in the case of Signal, the messaging app follows strict privacy guidelines and does not collect any data. Signal prides itself on being one of the most secure and privacy-sensitive apps out there and it is clearly stated in its privacy policy about practices. Having said that, Telegram plans to roll out advertisements on its platform in the future which means it needs the data to serve ads to its customers. Signal on other hand does not plan to monetise the app anytime soon and instead is funded on donations by users. View the full article

It’s enriched with aloe vera extracts, olive oil and rice extracts that not only style but also repair your hair.

It’s infused with all-natural ingredients which are known for boosting hair growth and reducing hair fall.

For those of you who have never tried a hair mask, it’s meant to nourish, condition and smoothen your hair. In other words, if a basic hair conditioner can’t get rid of the frizziness, this mask surely will. __ECOMPRODUCT__1069__ 6. Play It Coal: Detoxifying Shampoo Bar Shampoo bars have just started making a comeback in the beauty industry. If you haven’t tried a shampoo bar yet, you’re missing out on a lot of good stuff. A shampoo bar is meant to deeply cleanse the scalp without being too harsh on the hair. If you are struggling with an oily scalp, try out this shampoo bar. We promise you won’t regret it. __ECOMPRODUCT__1070__ 7. Hair Serum Lastly, we have a hair serum for men by Whiskers. A serum is essential for men who have dry hair. This hair serum will calm down any frizziness in your hair and nourish it from within. It’s a very lightweight formula that gets absorbed within seconds. It also provides protection from sun damage which can actually lead to premature ageing of the hair. __ECOMPRODUCT__605__ The Bottomline There you go, these were some of our tried and tested hair products for men. Who said you need to spend a lot of money to look good? Tried out these products and hair game will be stronger than ever before! Explore More View the full article
  8. Riz Ahmed honoured the stars that the lost in 2020, including Chadwick Boseman and Irrfan Khan
  9. No one does normcore and functional styling nearly as well as Shahid Kapoor. The man has given us some real, statement worthy outfits even when dressing down. That’s a rare ability that makes Shahid a style god, worth looking out for. © Viral Bhayani Very recently, Shahid Kapoor was spotted at the Mumbai Airport in a rather dope outfit, which turned heads. Given just how awesome Shahid’s record has been with street style, it shouldn’t come as a surprise. © Viral Bhayani Shahid was seen wearing a very basic T-shirt, with a pair of jogger pyjamas, a pair of really cool sneakers, and dope looking bomber jacket. We will go as far as to say that this year, if you’re considering to go camping, this is the outfit that you should have in mind. © Viral Bhayani The black pyjamas that Shahid is wearing, is a fine piece when it comes to functional clothing. The relaxed fit, and the technical-looking pockets, do give it a unique character. We also love the oversized side pockets and the unusually long zipped pockets on the sides. They add another dimension to the pyjamas. If you ask us, these are just perfect for long flights. © Viral Bhayani Then there is the jacket itself. Again, it is a very technical-looking piece, that actually pairs rather well with the pyjamas. The jacket is a piece from one of Moncler’s older collections and is an expensive one. Moncler is actually one of the most renowned skiwear makers. Currently, the piece is listed for $1,400 or Rs 1.05 Lakhs, plus imports and taxes, of course. © Viral Bhayani Coming to the sneakers that we see Shahid wearing, they are dope. The colour scheme is neat, clean, and not too fussy, and actually, goes rather well with the rest of the outfit. We would have loved to see something more outdoorsy or something that was more geared towards adventure, as that would have rounded up the entire outfit more. Having said that, Shahid still looks dope. © Viral Bhayani All in all, Shahid, who is preparing for his upcoming launch, Jersey looks super dope. View the full article

  11. Nvidia's new RTX 3000-series GPUs took the market by surprise with their impressive performance, ushering the next generation of gaming with a significant leap thanks to the Ampere architecture. The launch of the 3060 Ti also came as a surprise addition to the lineup. With a promise of delivering more performance than the previous-generation top-of-the-line RTX 2080 and 2080 Super, it's safe to say that the RTX 3060 Ti quickly became one of the best cards in the series. We've been using the Zotac GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Twin Edge GPU for a couple of months now, and we think it's indeed one of the best GPU you can buy in 2021. Here's our full review - Design and Specifications © MensXP/Karthik Iyer As you can see, the Zotac 3060 Ti Twin Edge GPU looks very different from the Founders Edition card. This GPU also uses the IceStorm 2.0 cooling system that we've seen on the Zotac 3090 Trinity. The cooling system is purpose-built for a wider coverage to keep the GPU cooler. This GPU also uses the new 11-blade fan that increases airflow by up to 10% when compared with the previous generation design. We expect that kind of cooling here because of just how powerful these new GPUs are. It also has wide aluminum fin-stack array heatsink paired with copper heat pipes to extract more heat and distribute it more efficiently. You also get a metal backplate that wraps around to increase the body to give you a more solid fit and finish, making it more durable. And unlike the Founders Edition card, the Zotac RTX 3060 Ti comes with an LED light that adds a little bit of flair to your system if it lacks RGB lighting. Overall, the card isn't massive like the 3090 Trinity and you should no issues fitting it inside even a mini-ITX cabinet. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer Moving on to the specs, the Zotac 3060 Ti comes with 4864 CUDA cores which is double the amount of CUDA cores found on the RTX 2060 Super. This GPU also offers 152 Tensor cores, 38 RT cores, 152 TMUs, and 80 ROPs. The memory bandwidth is the same as the RTX 3070 i.e. 8 GB of 14 Gbps GDDR6 memory across a 256-bit wide memory interface. Games Performance: FPS, Ray Tracing and DLSSIn order to test the GPU, we installed the Zotac 3060 Ti GPU on a system with these specs - The rig is somewhat powerful enough to run most AAA titles at max settings at 1080p or even 1440p, depending on the title. We tested games like Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Gears 5, Metro Exodus, Apex Legends, and more. Here's how it went - We tested all games at the highest graphics quality (unless indicated otherwise) to maintain a balanced performance analysis. They all were tested at 1080p resolution, which is the most popular monitor resolution. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer As you can see, even the demanding titles like Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Death Stranding, and Doom Eternal were running at solid frames. With Doom Eternal, we were easily able to hit the 144FPS at the highest settings, and the same was the case with Death Stranding. The GPU was also able to handle Metro Exodus pretty easily, however, the frames did drop below 100FPS when we enabled the Ray-tracing. But Nvidia's DLSS still helped us enjoy the game without any major FPS drops. Red Dead Redemption 2 is known to be one of the most demanding titles for PC right now but the 3060 Ti was able to maintain 80-90FPS at max graphics at 1080p. That's very impressive and it shows just how powerful this GPU really is. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer Although not all the games were tested together in one sitting, we can still confirm that the GPU was able to handle thermals very well. The GPU would sit at around 40°C when idle and went up to 75°C under load. If anything, these numbers show that Zotac's IceStorm 2.0 cooling is indeed capable of handling the load during peak gaming. Cyberpunk 2077 On Zotac RTX 3060 Ti Twin Edge GPUOne of the main reasons why we didn't add Cyberpunk 2077 to the main benchmark list for this review is because of just how inconsistent this game in its current state. Bugs and crashes aside, the game is also plagued by various performance issues on PC, resulting in lower frames than what was expected out of even the most powerful rigs out there. We think Cyberpunk 2077 needed a little more time in the oven, so we decided to keep it out of the benchmarking list for now. That being said, we were able to play the entire game and spend over 100 hours without any major hiccups. So we'll be sharing our experience of running the game on a rig powered by the Zotac 3060 Ti, but please note that this isn't the performance breakdown of the game. We'll try to revisit the same once CD Projekt Red manages to fully fix the game with more patches. Setting the graphics quality to the highest preset @ 1080p resolution yielded a consistent 90-100FPS at all times. This is regardless of the location you are in at the night city, be it out in the open world or inside a club with a lot of NPCs and lighting. With RT Ultra and DLSS Balanced Presets, we were able to get around 50-60 FPS depending on the scene. We're sure the performance will improve significantly CD Projekt Red pushes out more patches in the future. The Final SayLooking at the performance numbers, we think the Zotac RTX 3060 Ti is a solid GPU for most gamers looking at games at 1080p and 1440p. It's a great GPU for 1440p gaming and it does marginally beat the RTX 2080 Super, whereas it's a significant performance uplift over the RTX 2060 and the RTX 2060 Super. The GPU also has the horsepower to handle 4K gaming but you'll have to reduce details a little bit when it comes to demanding titles. So we think 1440p is the sweet spot for the Zotac 3060 Ti and it absolutely annihilates almost every title at 1080p. It averages 144FPS for most titles at 1080p so we see a lot of 1080p FullHD gamers eyeing this card. Overall, we think it's an exceptional GPU to buy and it offers great performance. And considering the fact that the other 3000-series GPUs are so hard to come by due to inventory management, we think 3060 Ti is a solid option if you are upgrading from an older GPU. For Rs 41,000, we think the Zotac RTX 3060 Ti Twin Edge offers a great value for money. View the full article
  12. If you’re a regular shaver, you know that the struggle is real. From bumps and cuts to the aftershave burn, getting a close and a smooth shave is not as easy as it seems.

  14. Short films, a category that was always popular for producing off beat reels on topics that were left untouched by commercial cinema, continues to do so. Amidst all the noise that massy commercial movies and shows, even on OTT platforms create, it becomes quite easy for short films to just disappear. However, even though this year has been quite rough, we have been blessed with some brilliant Hindi short films of 2020 on Youtube. Here we have picked out a few of them that you can watch over the weekend with your family. 1. Devi (TW: Rape, Murder) With 8.3 IMDb rating, this one is arguably the most famous name on this list. Devi boasts of a stellar ensemble cast that includes Kajol, Neha Dhupia and Shruti Haasan among others in pivotal roles. The film revolves around the story of nine women from distinct stratas of society forced into a sisterhood due to circumstances in which they are compelled to share their stories of abuse. 2.

  16. Strapline: Yashraj’s musical memes gave us all something to look forward to 2020, but was the year as kind to him as his memes were to us? There are only two things that went viral this year in India - the coronavirus, which wreaked havoc in our lives and basically made us live a post-apocalyptic movie in real life and secondly, a certain musical genius aka Yashraj Mukhate who made sure our pandemic-stricken life had some musical memory which will go down in history. It is fair to say that if you really want to make someone happy, make them laugh with memes and Yashraj is the internet’s gift to mankind with his insane meme generating skills and brilliant sense of music. My conversation with him is preceded with the first thought I had in my mind, that ‘rasode mein kaun tha?’ And with this grave question that has gripped all of us over the past few months, I ask him that since the pandemic life is now divided into a ‘pre-rasoda’ and a ‘post rasoda’ era for all of us, how was 2020 for him personally. “For me, it’s been a great year. First my sister got married, I was already getting work offers for Marathi films & people had already started noticing my work before this video got viral,” he responds. View this post on Instagram While most of us were busy in Zoom meetings, baking our multiple batches of banana breads and competing on Instagram with our version of the sad Dalgona coffee. Mukhate was already steering up on the way to achieve more success with of course, more hard work. He composed and released his second original song Uchlingo Muchlingo and was working on a Marathi film as well. In fact, the lockdown ensured everyone was home and glued to their social media profiles where the virality of his work epitomized his creative outburst. My inquisitiveness piqued as I cajoled Yashraj to share his creative process on churning out these wonderful musical gems. He answers matter-of-factly, “The process happens in my mind. I have this knack of joining two things together in a rhythm, something which I inherited from my father who is a great mimicry artist.” One would assume that since this is his natural talent, his music archive must be filled with more clips waiting to go viral. The uncrowned king of meticulous music tells me that his musical diary is actually filled with more deleted files than the ones which make it to the final cut. It’s a pure trial and error method, which he enjoys ofcourse. View this post on Instagram The conversation warms up to our next round of questions which include his perception of this new-found virality. Yashraj has been in the business for years and his talent has previously been recognized as well in the music circuit, but this journey of being a household name is something new for him. So, has life changed after his DMs are flooded with fans and most importantly, what started out as a fun activity for him, has the pressure to pelt out more viral hits built up like an active volcano for him? He says, “I thought I’d be really happy and it will be really peaceful for me but the reality is that I am more stressed out than I ever was! My phone has obviously not stopped ringing and the attention is constant, I fear that I will miss out on the great opportunities that are coming my way. Since the time constraints are a big problem for any artist, I am still trying to manage and make my way through juggling all of it. Mujhe kuch chhodna nahi hai isme se. I want it all.” View this post on Instagram If only Hermione Granger’s time turner clock was a real thing, Yashraj would benefit the most from it right now. From literally being a stressbuster for the 1.4 million fans that follow him to swimming in a pool of creative stress himself, life is shaping up well for this self-taught musician. Two things that absolutely baffled me and took me by surprise were the facts he revealed about his musical talent. He learnt music all by himself and used the internet to hone his skills. He is actually an engineer who decided to pursue music instead. He started with playing a toy piano as a small kid, and learnt the basic nuances on it. He was regular in his practice and got some technical knowledge from his father. By the time he entered college, he was acquainted with the theory. He continued his learning and experimented a lot on music. By the time he graduated, he had successfully managed to be noticed by some people on the internet, courtesy his YouTube channel. Also, it turns out that the Rasode mein kaun tha video was a result of an impromptu creative bout and he had planned on not making these memes after this one. It is only after it got viral that he realised that it could not be his last! Our call navigates towards how social media has helped him ace his game. “Social media is everything for me. It has given me everything that I had,” he is quick to acknowledge. While the pressure to excel and continue churning out interesting stuff is on an all-time high for this musical prodigy, he is busy facing the positives and soaking all the love that comes his way. I ask if any messages that fill his inbox stand out from the rest and he is quick to add that on some days people write to him that they are stuck in the hospital amid this Covid-19 spike, and watching his videos helped them sail through the day. That is more love than one can fathom and we can only imagine how it would fill his heart with warmth. View this post on Instagram I obviously want to know what his personal favourite rap created by him is and the answer is actually not the Kokilaben video. He loves the Rakhi Sawant video which he created long ago. While this year has been a slice of nightmare for all of us, some fantastic content creators like Yashraj have ensured that we had a reason to smile and look forward to a happy tomorrow. There are millions of musicians who create some great stuff but after speaking to him, I managed to conclude that the reason we love him the way we do is because he enjoys the entire process of making his music and that shows in his work. The happy vibe that he passes on via his videos is contagious and we only wish it was the only virus that was spreading in 2020 instead of the novel Coronavirus. View the full article

  18. 2020 was not the year that humanity will remember, as a lot went wrong, but video games did make it easier to get on with your life when you were stuck inside. Video games were probably the most important medium of entertainment this year as it encouraged people to interact with each other, curb mental illness and simply have a great time when you can’t do anything else. We decided to narrow down some of the best games of 2020 that everyone should experience at least once in their life: 1. Final Fantasy VII Remake © Square Enix Final Fantasy VII Remake will go down as one of the best RPGs ever made and the game has managed to rake in awards for its beautiful visuals and addicting gameplay. With great characters, a compelling story, incredible music and engaging battle systems, Final Fantasy VII Remake is one of the best games of this decade let alone 2020. There’s a sequel coming for this instalment as well however we recommend playing the remake if you haven't played already. If you want to know more about the game, read our full review here. 2. Ghost of Tsushima © Sucker Punch Productions, Sony Interactive Entertainment Ghost of Tsushima is a brand new franchise by Sony Interactive Entertainment that has dominated charts ever since it was released. The game features stunning landscapes, a beautiful soundtrack and one of the most polished combat systems we’ve ever seen in a game. You play as Jin Sakai who is a samurai on a quest to protect the island of Tsushima during the first Mongol invasion of Japan. The highlight of the game is its one-on-one sword fighting duels that are backed with epic music and presented in the style of Akira Kurosawa movies. If you want to know more about Ghost of Tsushima, read our full review here. 3. Hades © Supergiant Games Supergiant games are known for making great Indie titles and ‘Hades’ is no exception. It’s one of the best roguelike action role-playing games you will play this generation with beautiful environments and gameplay that you cannot put down once you start. Hades was one of the biggest sleeper hits of the year that nobody expected. 4. The Last of Us Part II © Naughty Dog Hate or love it, TLOU part 2 is one of those ground-breaking games that people will remember for a long time. If you’ve ever wondered whether games can ever give movies a run for its money, look no further than Naughty Dog’s TLOU Part 2. Gameplay is far more refined from the first game and it tells a painfully beautiful story that shows both sides of the coin. It challenges the usual tropes of video game story-telling and at the same time make you feel emotional with a compelling story. If you haven’t played the game, check out our spoiler-free review here. 5. Spider-Man Miles Morales © MensXP, Sony Interactive Entertainment Spider-Man Miles Morales is yet another Sony PlayStation exclusive that you need to play. The sequel tells the story of Miles Morales and shows how he struggles with his newfound powers. He has a deep connection with his Harlem neighbourhood and does everything in his power to help the city while Peter Parker is away on vacation. In our review,we called it ‘an incredible extension of the first game even on the PlayStation 4. The game shows off finer details such as Miles’ characteristics effortlessly and adds new layers to the combat system.’ If you want to know more about Spider-Man: Miles Morales, check out our full review here 6. Yakuza Like a Dragon © Sega Yakuza Like a Dragon is an excellent crime-based RPG that SEGA has released since Yakuza 0.

  19. B-town is literally filled with celebrities who are big-time sneakerheads but looks like even the designers are joining the bandwagon and showing that they have a knack to pull off eccentric pairs of sneakers - case in point, the famous Bollywood fashion and costume designer Manish Malhotra. © Instagram/Manish Malhotra © Viral Bhayani The reason why we are appreciating his sense of style today is because of his recent look, that is so rad, it can easily give other B-towners a run for their money. © Viral Bhayani Okay, we all know how the recent trend of wearing huge, monstrous sneakers has become a thing everywhere. From Shahid Kapoor to Aparshakti Khurana, we have seen so many celebrities ace it and how! Yet, Manish's pair takes the cake. The reason? Well, these sneakers are huge on an extreme level and every little detail of this pair proves that. © Viral Bhayani Firstly, the neon accents scream flamboyance. Even the tongue is padded and extra long. The most unmissable part is the white outsole which is easily adding two inches more to Manish's height here. If you look at it, even the outsole is unconventional and these are the best kind of dad sneakers we have seen. © Viral Bhayani As for his outfit, Manish stood out with his floral light denim jacket, layered over a black T-shirt. That with his black Adidas track pants made the look even more playful. Now that we have almost reached the end of 2020, this is truly the best way to sum it up in style. View the full article
  20. Smartwatches have seen a boom in India and around the world for several purposes such as fitness, managing notifications and using it for payments as well. Smartwatches are no longer the bulky devices on your wrist with very limited functionality. Today, smartwatches are elegant, powerful and can do much more than just being a digital calculator. Here are the best smartwatches that are available to buy in India right now: 1. Apple Watch Series 6 © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Apple Watch Series 6 is the latest smartwatch by Apple that has been reigning the top smartwatches' list ever since the first iteration was launched. The new Apple Watch has the ability to track SPO2, heart rate, GPS and exercises. Apart from being a great fitness accessory, the Apple Watch has other nifty features such as fall detection, music streaming over LTE, ECG tracking and other health features that have saved countless lives in the past. If you are an iPhone user and want the best of the best, it doesn’t get better than the Apple Watch. 2. Galaxy Watch 3 © Youtube_Shane Symonds If you are an Android user, you really can’t go wrong with Samsung’s offering that does almost everything the Apple Watch can. It is by far the most intuitive and reliable Android smartwatch you can use in 2020. It uses Samsung’s Wizen operating system which is far easier to use than Google’s Wear OS. The smartwatch also has the ECG function, heart rate tracking and sleep monitoring. The smartwatch can also read SpO2 (blood oxygen saturation levels) and VO2 max (oxygen consumption during exercise). It is by far the only alternative to the Apple Watch that packs all the features you need from a fitness and health tracker. 3. Fitbit Versa 3 © Fitbit If you are looking for a reliable accessory for your Android smartphone that does not cost as much, the Fitbit Versa 3 is a great smartwatch to consider. It can last for an entire week on a single charge even with its always-on AMOLED display. The smartwatch is best for fitness enthusiasts who want something more flexible than the Apple Watch. It can track 20 different activities and can detect exercises automatically as well. The Fitbit is also a bit more accurate at counting steps with its ‘Active Zone Minutes’ feature where it only tracks steps when doing physical activity. 4. Amazfit Bip © Youtube_Nathan Kontny Not all smartwatches need to cost a lot of money as Amazfit has demonstrated with the ‘Bip’. It’s a budget-friendly smartwatch that works with both iOS and Android devices. The smartwatch comes with GPS and heart rate tracking as well which was quite unexpected in a watch that costs less than Rs 5,000. The smartwatch also comes with a transflective colour display that is easier to use and does not drain the battery. It can work for 45 days on a single charge and is one of the longest-lasting smartwatches out there. 5. Mi Watch Revolve © Xiaomi Xiaomi’s first smartwatch is probably the most feature-packed affordable smartwatch on this list. It also uses a very elegant design which can go well with all types of outfits. It has all the usual tracking functions and performs better than what we expected.
