  1. It's quite rare to find earphones that offer superb balanced sound quality and offer accurate frequency response at the same time. Most earphones either offer one of the two or often compromise on build quality. However, 1More's triple driver earphones break that myth and offer all of these factors in one package. It's our favourite earphones to use at the moment and there's a good reason for it: nothing comes close to these earphones right now. We used it for casual podcast listening, music and gaming and it performed well in all scenarios apart from a few minor caveats. Here's our review of 1More's Triple Driver earphones: Packaging © MensXP Normally, we don't talk much about the packaging of an earphone as it's quite generic; even for high-end headphones. However, 1More gives you a box that is filled with accessories and overall justifies its premium aura. It comes with a hard faux-leather case for your earphones, a metal shirt clip, an adapter for planes and a set of 10 ear-tips. No other brand in India gives you so many ear-tips that cater to your personal liking. There are three pairs of foam tips and seven silicone tips giving you the freedom to use what suits you best. The box is also shaped and designed as a hard book. It has magnets that keep it closed and the interiors have sketches of the earphones. It's by far the most premium looking packaging we've ever seen and 1More deserves a point just for making that extra effort. Design © 1More 1More is a company that designs all the earphones for Xiaomi. In fact, you will see the same design language in some of Xiaomi's products today. The 1More triple driver has an aluminium shell that is shaped like a cone with an angle. Due to this design choice, it sits perfectly in the ear to give the best sound experience possible. The cable is also made of braided fabric that makes it easier to manage and does not get easily tangled. Overall, the build quality is top notch as it feels quite durable and sturdy. The cables will remain intact even if you use it quite roughly thanks to the braided fabric. The earbuds feel extra comfortable even when we used it for prolonged periods of time. We tested the earphones while gaming and the sheer comfort was able to add a few hours in game time. © MensXP The supplied pouch is also a handy thing to have as it makes it easier to commute with these headphones. You can easily store this headphone in the pouch to protect it from getting damaged in your pocket or bag. The pouch comes most handy when you are travelling on planes as you can store the adapter in the pouch as well. You can use the adapter on planes to watch content and have a far better experience than those lousy headphones you get in the flight. How Does It Sound? © YouTube The 1More Triple driver earphones consist of two armature driver and a dynamic driver in each earbud. These deliver a superior sound experience as the balanced armature drivers can host multiple drivers in a compact body. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the sound from the earphones and this pair also happen to be THX certified. So if you love to watch movies on the go, these earphones will also deliver a surround sound experience. In terms of sound, the 1More Triple Driver earphones deliver a very precise, clear and rich sound. The bass is not too heavy leaving enough room for the mids and highs to be balanced. This combination makes the sound a little less muddy even when you turn up the volume. The slight mid-bass bump also results in a very balanced and warm tone that is quite rare to find on in-ear headphones. Is It Worth It? In India, the 1More Triple Driver earphone costs Rs 7,349 on Amazon and is worth every single rupee. To be honest, these earphones should be priced way higher for what it offers in terms of sound and build quality. It's actually quite hard to think what other earphone sounds betters than the 1More Triple Driver at an unbelievable price like this. It's got luxury level packing, full accessories and a sound that is to die for. If you are serious about your music, just buy these earphones as soon as you can.
  2. It's Bollywood's OG superhero, Krrish aka Hrithik Roshan's birthday today. Although age is just a number for this Greek god, who was ranked as the world's most handsome actor last year, he turned 45 today. © Instagram From his ex-wife and BFF Suzanne Khan to Sonali Bendre, Preity Zinta and Shabana Azmi, celebrities have flooded social media with birthday posts. However, it was Tiger Shroff who won the best birthday post award and took us on a nostalgic trip we were neither expecting nor ready for. © Instagram As a tribute to Hrithik, whom he calls his inspiration, Tiger posted a video of him dancing to the hit party number 'Ek Pal Ka Jeena' from 'Kaho Naa...Pyaar Hai'. If you remember the song and the signature step by heart, then you had an amazing childhood. Tiger Shroff wrote, "Blessed to be working with my inspiration thank you for being born and giving direction and inspiration to so many of us! #happybirthday." Hrithik Roshan is undoubtedly one of the best dancers Bollywood has ever seen, but Tiger Shroff's tribute video was on another level. Tiger Shroff not only nailed the dance steps of the iconic song, but ended up doing better than Hrithik Roshan. View this post on Instagram Blessed to be working with my inspiration ððððð thank you for being born and giving direction and inspiration to so many of us! #happybirthday @hrithikroshan ⤠A post shared by Tiger Shroff (@tigerjackieshroff) on Jan 9, 2019 at 10:52pm PST As we speak about 'Ek Pal Ka Jeena', let's re-watch the song again. On the work front, Tiger and Hrithik will soon share screen space in Siddharth Anand's next film. Although, not much is known about the film yet, we're confirmed about two things - an epic dance-off between Hrithik and Tiger and some insane high-octane action scenes.
  3. Having *** or making love is fun and games sure, but if you're with that special someone, there are, on an autopilot, many strings attached with the fun that comes with being a lover. Now there maybe many ways you can improve your *** skills or your game play in bed, but apart from the physical manoeuvres, there are some emotional and mental things you need to keep in mind, which will definitely be the best for you and make you the best bet in bed. © Getty Images Even if you're single, having a few things straightened out emotionally can really help you become 'the best *** she's ever had'. But for that to happen you have to pay heed to a lot more than just physical needs. Here are three things you should do to become a better lover. (1) Communicate Effectively So many couples, and men in general, lack the basic skills for effective communication. If you're communicating what you feel and what you feel like doing, effectively, you'll never not fulfil what she desires the most. The hard part isn't over when you find someone to be with. The hard part starts when you want to express and share most things with them. By effectively communicating and laying what you feel on the table, you can grasp the situation a lot easily and understand your partner's needs, everywhere, including the bedroom. © Getty Images (2) Being Emotionally Tuned In Emotional needs fit right into the Yin Yang and they definitely help meet all physical needs. If your emotional quotient is in order, you'll understand the levels of intimacy your partner needs. Understanding women emotionally is a task and if you take out time and patience to tune in emotionally with them, there's no stopping you from becoming the mayor of loverville. If you're emotionally disconnected, *** is just a casual activity you indulge in, like taking a walk in the park and it can't become something hot and intimate. © Getty Images (3) Sensitivity Pays Off You may be thinking that if you're emotionally there, you're sensitive too but sensitivity is different from being emotionally tuned in. A sensitive man knows how to play out his emotions well and when to use them. So, if you're in bed with her and you're sensitive to her needs and listen to what she wants, you're being sensitive. You can't become sensitive when you're not. It takes time and patience to develop a skill or a personality like that but if you try and adhere to her needs and pay attention to things she says, it can get you there in no time. And also, do wonders with your lovemaking skills! © Getty Images You may have a good body, a big *****, perfectly crusted abs, a sexy voice or anything that can make her jaw drop after seeing you naked. But if you don't have these three things listed above, you're just going to be an average lover and trust me, average isn't good!
  4. When most of us were chilling at home during the new year weekend, our beloved celebrities had already left for their favourite destinations to ring in the celebrations. In case you're wondering, why are we talking about this now? Because, the celebrities are busy posting pictures from their epic vacation and making us burn with envy. View this post on Instagram Happiness in the mountains â° â¤ï¸ð A post shared by Priyanka Chopra Jonas (@priyankachopra) on Dec 29, 2018 at 7:54am PST For example, look at 'Jiju' Nick Jonas' Instagram. The 'Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle' actor welcomed the New Year in Switzerland, with Priyanka Chopra, Joe Jonas, Sophie Turner and the entire Jonas family. Nick-Priyanka and Joe-Sophie's social media is flooded with pictures of them having the time of their lives. View this post on Instagram Ski life ð¿ ðð A post shared by Priyanka Chopra Jonas (@priyankachopra) on Dec 30, 2018 at 6:08am PST But it's 'Jiju' Nick whose adventurous side has taken his fans and Priyanka by storm, as he continues to rock the new year with his insane skiing skills. Recently, he posted this video from Verbier, where he was flaunting his skiing skills and captioned it as, "My happy place." View this post on Instagram My happy place. ð¥ @jonboy_wilsonmtb A post shared by Nick Jonas (@nickjonas) on Jan 3, 2019 at 7:12am PST Nick's skills have not only impressed Priyanka, but also his 'Saali' Parineeti who left comments on his post. While, Priyanka wrote, "So hot", Parineeti wrote "Serving some SKILLS." He even posted a video of him enjoying paragliding in the mountains, with the caption "This was amazing". We're sure it must have been amazing. View this post on Instagram This was amazing! @verbiersummits A post shared by Nick Jonas (@nickjonas) on Jan 3, 2019 at 8:29am PST We don't know about you, but these pictures and videos of the Jonas family vacationing in the snow-capped mountains, is making us want to pack our bags and go there. Priyanka and Nick tied the knot in Umaid Bhawan, Jodhpur on December 2 and 3, 2018.
  5. There's a new 'Dilbar' in town and it's neither Sushmita Sen nor Nora Fatehi. Sushmita Sen will forever remain the OG queen and 'Dilbar' of our hearts, as she is the one who made everyone fall for her charm and beauty 19 years ago with the iconic song. Fast forward to the present, and the 'Dilbar' version 2.0 from 'Satyameva Jayate' has now turned into an even bigger hit, with Nora Fatehi belly dancing her way into our hearts and living up to all the expectations one had from this remix version. While poeple were busy voting between Sushmita and Nora, Tiger Shroff was busy making his own version of 'Dilbar' and let's just say, we're super impressed with his killer dance moves. Tiger wasn't just basking in the sun today, as he was busy giving a tough competition to Nora in dancing and looks like the diva took the bait. View this post on Instagram â¤barrr #choreoby my main man @piyush_bhagat @swainvikram @shaziasamji A post shared by Tiger Shroff (@tigerjackieshroff) on Dec 19, 2018 at 10:38pm PST Soon after Tiger posted the video, Nora commented on Tiger's video and wrote, "Yaaasss this is lit. I'm ready for a dance off." Well, now that Nora has challenged Tiger to a 'Dilbar' dance-off, let's just hope they make OG Dilbar Sushmita Sen judge their performance.
  6. One of the most common myths prevailing in the fitness area is that winters are a time for gaining, and summers are an excellent time to lean down. Are all Eskimos fat, just because they live in the coldest places on earth? Let's clear this myth once and for all. © Generation Iron In India, winters typically start in the Oct-November month and goes on to Feb and some part of March. What is fascinating is that in many sports, this is actually the in-season time where you have to be at your leanest for the upcoming competition. Notwithstanding this goes against the very concept of gaining mass during the winter months. In a sport like bodybuilding, December to March is generally the competition time, where the athlete has to cut down to be in the most muscular and ripped form of the year and actually the summer months is where you are in off-season where you gain maximum muscle mass. © sCI-MIX What I have heard so far from people is actually the part of many such myths and fallacies related to muscle building or weight loss/gain. For example, when I asked people personally as to why do they think that winter are good for gaining, the answer is typical; it is because you sweat less in winters, so you can gain mass easily which is the opposite of another myth that excess sweating leads to weight loss. Losing sweat is a natural way for the body to cool down. That's it. Another myth is that during winter months the physical activity reduces in most cases that is why one gains more weight. Now this is not a valid logic. If you're not working out, it's simply because of laziness. Seasons have nothing to do with this. In one of the studies published in the “European Journal of Applied Physiology and Occupational Physiology” in 1984, it was seen that body fat levels were highest in summers. The study suggested that the main fuel oxidized during winters is fat. © YouTube If we consider the evolutionary point of view then during the days of our ancestors, winter were the months of hibernation due to scarcity of food, which is also the case with many animals like the Polar Bear, even today. These animals eat large amount of food during the summer months and store maximum fat and then use this fat for survival during the harsh winters. The same was the case with humans millions of years ago. This led to our bodies becoming more efficient in storing food as fat during summers and burning it more efficiently as fuel during winters. Even with reduced physical activity, the humans are easily getting large amount of foods in all seasons. So during winters where the body is more efficient in burning fat and eating less, we are giving it large amount of calories which has the exact opposite effect on his body i.e. increase body fat levels and this is not the reason why you gain weight during winters. There is a type of fat in the body which unlike other fat tissue, burn excess energy rather than storing it as fat, the brown fat. This is opposite to the white fat tissue, the one which hangs over your belly and arms. The main purpose of this fat tissue is to regulate body temperature and burn the excess fuel in the cell to release the energy as heat. In fact, cold exposure has been a common practice in many sports to strip of fat where athletes after a hard workout jump in a tub of crushed ice or take ice cold shower to increase thermogenesis and activation of brown adipose tissue. That is also one of the reasons why mountaineers are told to eat more fat during extreme cold as the body loses a lot of fat at higher altitudes and fat is required for insulation from cold. Another reasons observed was that winters have longer nights. This leads to longer sleep periods, longer and adequate sleep leads to adequate recovery and increase in growth hormones and testosterone levels, which means more fat burn and gain in lean muscle mass. So, contrary to a lot of popular beliefs, winter may not be the time to gain but an excellent time to cut down and strip off the excess fat.

  7. Protein supplements are one of the supplements that have enough credible data supporting its benefits and safety when it comes to muscle building properties. It is one of the supplements that make my list of the 'only' supplements you will ever need. You can read that piece here. Now though protein supplements are beneficial, there is still a lot of confusion among people as they are flooded with different types of protein choices when they go to buy it from a store or online. As per the data present currently, the protein derived from milk, especially Whey and Casein protein have proven to be more beneficial compared to other plant and animal sources of protein supplements. © Thinkkstock That is because, in comparison to other protein sources, whey and casein have higher essential amino acids and thus promote more muscle protein synthesis. Let's compare Whey and Casein and decide which protein is better for muscle growth. A few properties of Whey: 1. A faster-digesting form of protein. 2. Rapidly increases muscle protein synthesis for a short period. 3. Slightly higher leucine content. A few properties of Casein: 1. A slower-digesting form of protein. 2. Slowly increases muscle protein synthesis for a relatively long period of time. Let's ask an important question first. Do you really need protein shakes? The short answer to that would be a resounding no. A relatively context based answer to the question would be the classic 'it depends.' Taking a protein supplement has certain benefits: 1. It does not need much preparation. 2. It is easier to consume on the go. 3. It can be conveniently carried with you. 4. It is a smart addition to a protein-deficient nutrition regime. If your goal is maximal muscle gain or maximal muscle retention while losing fat, research suggests that protein intakes between 1.6 grams to 2.2 grams per kilogram of body weight are beneficial. To finetune this further, the protein should be spread in 4-5 meals for the day. If you can get this protein by food sources alone, there is no need to consume protein shakes. But if you fail to do so, they can be a great addition. As whey protein is a faster-digesting source of protein, it can be a great source of protein as soon as you wake up or after your workout considering you have not had a protein meal a few hours or just before your workout. © Thinkkstock It will rapidly spike muscle protein synthesis and that in-turn will benefit you with either muscle gain or retention based on your overall nutrition and body composition goals. On the other hand, casein, being a slower-digesting protein can be a great addition before bed. As it is a sustained release protein, it will ensure that your muscle protein synthesis stays elevated for hours into sleep. Whey has anabolic properties aka it helps with muscle building whereas Casein has anti-catabolic properties aka it helps with muscle preservation. Both these supplements can be an addition to your routine and none of them are mandatory supplements to consume. You can do just well without them.

  8. Dino Morea is turning 43, and he still continues to be the reason for the collective weak knees for a large number of women in the country (let's just say worldwide, tbh). When it comes to good looking men, he has always been the forerunner - right from the '90s, and nothing has changed even after decades. He is still as fit, as fashionable, and as charming, and here are 10 pictures that prove that. 1.

  9. Water is the very foundation of life on earth. I think we can all agree that life, as we know it, would not have existed in the absence of water. The human body itself is about 70% water. It is pretty obvious that like everything else, there would be different opinions on how much water one should be drinking every day. Some people believe you need to sip on water even when you're not thirsty, while some recommend not drinking more than 2 litres of water every day. So many opinions, so much confusion! But Why Is Being Hydrated So Important? © Thinkstock Images Because you constantly keep losing water from your body, primarily via urine and sweat and being dehydrated can negatively impact your fitness levels. If your body weight decreases by meager 2% from fluid losses, your endurance goes down and if the number goes up to 3%, it can negatively impact strength. So, to prevent dehydration and (more importantly to be alive), adequate fluid intake is very important. What All Can Be Considered As Fluids? All fluids except for alcohol should be counted in your total fluid intake. Alcohol is not considered because it is dehydrating and makes you urinate more fluids out than you drink. Other than that, every other fluid contributes to your fluid intake. Even things like coffee and diet sodas which are often looked at as dehydrating agents are fluids. So all fluids, including coffee, diet soda, milk, juice, tea, flavored waters and any drink (besides alcohol) will count towards this intake. So How Much Fluid Should You ACTUALLY Consume? © Pixabay Your total water (fluid) intake for the day depends on a lot of internal and external individual factors and there are a couple of ways to decide optimum water (fluid) intake. Body weight method - The first way to calculate your fluid intake will involve calculations based on your body weight. For every 23 kg of your body weight, you should have a litre of water. 2. Qualitative method - The second method is based on your individual needs. Following this method, you should drink the amount of fluid which makes have 5 clear urinations per day. Out of 5, two urinations should be after you workout or during your workout if you have long workout sessions. Out of the two methods, I find the second one superior over the method where you intake is determined by your bodyweight. This is because two people of same body weight can have very different needs when it comes to fluid intake. A few determining factors could be: 1. Sweating - Some people sweat more than others and depending on the geographical location some people lose a lot more fluid through sweating than others. So, a 75 kg guy living in Jaipur will need to drink a lot more water than a 75 kg guy who lives in Kashmir. 2. Training And Lifestyle - Your hydration status depends a lot on the quantity and type of training you do. For example, if you work out 6 days and do 3-4 hour long cardio sessions in a week on top of the weight training, you'll need a lot more water to stay hydrated than someone who does not. Your profession also pays a big role in deciding your fluid intake. If you are someone who has to do physical work for their livelihood, you naturally will need more water than someone who is sedentary and sits at his office desk working on computers all day. Conclusion The best way to begin is to initially set your water(fluid) intake as per the body weight-based fluid recommendations. Check the colour and frequency of your urine while drinking this set of amount of fluid and increase or decrease your fluid intake accordingly by aiming for 5 clear urinations per day.

  10. OnePlus has been pushing boundaries every since its inception with competitive pricing and specs that rival flagship devices from every manufacturer. The company has time and time again proved that smartphones don't need to cost a bomb. Even though the price of OnePlus devices has been increasing year on year, it still offers the best experience on an Android smartphone for a budget price. Technologies on the device have been improving and the company is offering new innovations without the high price tag. Design, Display & Features OnePlus 6T follows the same ethos and builds on the already efficient OnePlus 6. It has a gorgeous screen and a smaller chin than its predecessor. The OnePlus 6T also has the reduced teardrop-shaped notch that leaves more real estate on the screen. Even though the 6T looks very similar to the OP6, it still is an impressive design for a smartphone that costs less than half the price of an iPhone. It is made out of exactly the same glass and metal material as its predecessor. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The bottom of the smartphone looks different from its predecessor as the headphone jack has now been removed. Audio is now passed through the USB-C port which is a very big disappointment for audiophiles like me. To be honest, OnePlus 6 and countless other smartphones prove that the removal of the headphone jack is completely unnecessary and we saw no point for the 6T to remove it either. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The water drop notch design is less intrusive when compared to other smartphones that implement a similar design and if you're not a fan of the notch, you can even hide from the settings. The earpiece is embedded in the rim at the top of the phone which can be troublesome to users when making phone calls. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The OnePlus 6t has a 6.41-inch AMOLED panel that has an aspect ratio of 19.6:9. The 85.6% screen to body ratio makes the smartphone fit snug as a bug in the palm and doesn't feel too massive in size. In terms of resolution, it remains the same with a full HD 2340 x 1080p resolution and pixel density of 402ppi. The colours on the screen definitely are immersive, crisp and vivid which makes the display more immersive for consuming video content and gaming. It's the only smartphone out there that offers an AMOLED panel on a budget. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla This time around, OnePlus has removed the rear fingerprint scanner and has now embedded it under the display. The scanner lights up each time you tap on the screen 2cm up from the bottom. It is the fastest in-display fingerprint scanner we've used thus far and worked each time without any misreadings. You will have to press your thumb a little harder in order for the fingerprint sensor to work. It is is not as fast the traditional fingerprint scanner but it does work effectively if you place your thumb at the right spot. Having said that, you will not use this feature as often if you've installed the 'Face Unlock' feature. The 'Face Unlock' feature works faster than anything we've used before, even though it doesn't use IR sensors. We rarely used the in-display fingerprint sensor to unlock our phone. The in-display fingerprint sensor only came handy in the night or when we would be driving. Performance The OP 6T has the same processor as the OP 6 i.e. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor. It is coupled with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM and has at least 128 GB of internal storage. In terms of performance, the 6T does a similar job as its predecessor and is one of the fastest Android smartphones you can use today. It's super fast at launching and closing apps and gives high fidelity performance when it comes to gaming. We played PUBG mobile for testing purposes and experience little or no frame rate drops which is quite impressive for a mobile device in 2018. This type of performance can only be compared to the iPhone or Samsung Galaxy Note 9. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Battery life is improved from before but isn't the best when taking smartphones like Poco F1 into consideration. On a single charge, the smartphone can last up to 22 hours with moderate use and around 13 hours with heavy usage. If you like to game on the go, we would recommend you get a power bank for an uninterrupted gaming experience. On the plus side, OnePlus 6T charges extremely quickly thanks to the supplied fast charger. The smartphone can get fully charged in 80 minutes which is on par with the previous OnePlus smartphones. Camera The OnePlus 6T has the same exact setup as the OnePlus 6, which means you can't expect much improvement in the camera, apart from a few nifty software features. It produces similar images as the OnePlus 6 and does not perform that well in low-light environments. OnePlus has introduced the new nightscape low light mode to take better pictures in low-lit environments, however, it still does not beat flagship devices like the iPhone XS, Galaxy Note or even the iPhone XR. It's good but not flagship good. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Portrait mode works exactly as it should, however, we still found a few inaccuracies when it came to detailing. Images appeared to be a little tased out and lacked to capture details if in poor lighting environments. This is where OnePlus makes a compromise and to be honest, if you don't take many pictures from your smartphone, you can overlook this one caveat. Overall, the OnePlus camera can deliver images that are Instagram-worthy, however, it's still not capable of delivering mind-blowing images yet. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Final Say For a smartphone that starts at Rs 37,999, you cannot get a better Android smartphone with unmatched performance. It works well for gaming purposes and delivers good battery life for daily usage. Having said that, we would have loved to see an improved camera to make it the perfect smartphone. It has a beautiful design and includes the innovative in-screen display sensor. It has a very tiny notch that gives more room for content on the screen and does not even break your bank. If you are looking for a smartphone that delivers flagship-level performance, the OnePlus 6T is simply your only choice right now.
  11. Robert Horry was in India recently and we spent some time with the 7-time NBA Champion talking about everything under the sun. But, amidst all the fun and games, we also asked him a few hard hitting questions about the state of affairs of basketball in India. © Getty Images Even though we kind of blindsided him with these questions, Robert had some astute advice on how Indians can become better at the sport. Here's a look at what he had to say: What is the best thing about basketball in India? The best thing is the NBA academy and the way they're trying to implement basketball to the youth at an early age. Once you implement basketball and start a grassroot programme it gets the youth more active in the sport and when the youth is more active in the sport, they start to love the sport. If you don't feed them the sport they don't know about the sport, they don't try the sport. This way you get them young, get them to fall in love, and see how competitive the game can be, how fun the game can be and more importantly how it can bring forth a brotherhood, a sisterhood because it's just not a sport for guys, but also a sport for young ladies also. © Getty Images What's the one thing that surprised you with reference to Basketball during your trip to India? I think the one thing is the love and the athletic ability from watching them practice here at the NBA Academy to see how good these guys were and see how young they were. And that's the whole thing. You catch these guys at a young age and are able to teach them the game so they can end up growing with the game in India and maybe one day someone that I just saw can maybe ascend to the NBA. In a cricket-crazy country like India – how can NBA change the focus to basketball or any other sport? I think the best thing to do is to present it to them. Present it to them, let them watch and the thing is you have to let them watch good basketball because. Just think about it. If a cricket match is not a good cricket match, you're not going to watch that. So present it, have some tape delay NBA games here in India so people can get a taste of it. Once you get a taste of it I think you will love it. You will want to go out and play it and the next thing you know it will probably be your favourite sport. It probably won't take over cricket but it will be up there hopefully. © Getty Images What do you think aspiring Indian players need to do to play in the NBA? I think the most important thing is to learn the game. Learn the game, watch tapes of old guys and go out and play the game. There are so many kids who want to watch the game but don't emulate the guys they need to emulate. You see a guy try to do some trickshots and you're like hey slow down. Learn how to shoot a regular shot before you do a trick shot. There are so many things that come into it. You have to be able to pass, dribble, shoot. Learn the fundamentals first and then expand on it.
  12. Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans really love each other, like really really love each other and they're not afraid to show it. From sharing memes of each other to some old-fashioned trolling, the two OG Avengers know how to keep themselves and their fans entertained, even when they're not on the big screen.

  13. 'Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4' is already out on the market right now and it has been ruling the sales charts ever since it was released. We reviewed the game in its current state and found it to be the best game in the franchise since 'Modern Warfare 2'. © Activision Black Ops 4 has a new game mode instead of a full single-player campaign, and it has been ruling the Battle Royale genre ever since it was released. Previously, the genre was dominated by 'Fortnite' and 'PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds' (PUBG), however, since COD Blops 4 released, there has been a gradual decrease in peak concurrent players on Steam for PUBG. This may be attributed to many reasons and we wanted to list out our reasons why people are jumping ships: 1. No Hackers © Youtubbe Activision as a publisher and Treyarch as a developer are very proactive when it comes to dealing with hackers. PUBG has a very poor reputation on PC and now on mobile, as the game is plagued with hackers that use aimbots to disfranchise players of quality experience. The lack of hackers in 'Call of Duty: Black Ops 4' is making people jump ship for the better experience they've always wanted. We can't be sure of the future if whether Blops 4 Blackout may also face a similar problem, however, as of now, it stands supreme. 2. Better Gunplay © Youtubbe There's no denying every Call of Duty game has impeccable gunplay that cannot be matched by any other FPS out there. Even Battlefield is now trying to replicate Activision's dated engine for their upcoming game “Battlefield 5” PUBG, on the other hand, always had a very clunky feel to its shooting mechanics which could be a contributing factor to Blackout's success. 3. There Are More Players © Gamesbeat Call Of Duty has been the highest selling game year in and year out and no game has been able to challenge that feat until now. According to VentureBeat, fewer people are logging in to play PUBG on PC and it seems like the trend is not going to slow down any sooner. PUBG is also not available on PlayStation 4 which has a higher player base, as the game is currently exclusive to Xbox One. 4. Better Gameplay © YouTube We've already mentioned that the game has better gunplay, however, Call of Duty games tend to be smooth and refined when it comes to overall gameplay. There are fewer bugs, glitches and the movement is also smoother. The same cannot be said about PUBG as the game is still plagued with glitches that are yet to be fixed. 5. It's More Than Just Shooting People © YouTube Blackout also features one of the most iconic features from the franchise — perks. Special abilities can be added to your character when you pick up perks from the ground. For example, you can equip multiple abilities such as Dead Silence (to suppress your footstep sounds) and Awareness (makes enemy footsteps louder), Outlander (Take less damage and gives faster movement in circle collapse) and many others. This adds more flavour to the overall gameplay and how the game progresses towards the end of the round.
  14. Arguably the most prestigious club competition in the footballing world, the UEFA Champions League, over the years, has lived up to its hype by offering some of the most exciting clashes and sublime performances in the sport. With some of the world's biggest football clubs fighting for European domination, the tournament often brings unexpected results to the fore. And, the second week of this year's UEFA Champions League groupstage has proved to be no different. The group games on Matchday 2 witnessed surprising results, where some of the prominent campaigners stuttered to get over the line. The likes of Bayern Munich and Manchester United were held to a draw by Ajax and Valencia respectively. On the other hand, last season's finalists Real Madrid and Liverpool were stunned (0-1) by CSKA Moscow and Napoli respectively. While the unexpected results last night surprised everyone, there were also some brilliant goals that elated the football fans. From Ivan Rakitic's stunning volley for Barcelona to Arnaut Danjuma's screamer for Club Brugge, here's a look at the top 5 goals from the UEFA Champions League last night: Ivan Rakitic (Barcelona vs Tottenham Hotspur) Ivan Rakitic Goal (2-0) - Barcelona vs Tottenham (2018) @FCBarcelona @SpursOfficial @ChampionsLeague pic.twitter.com/K4mnCHbJ64 — GOLAZO (@GOLAZOHDTV) October 3, 2018 Pablo Rosario (PSV Eindhoven vs Inter Milan) ¡GOOOOOOOOOL Y ASISTENCIA DEL "CHUCKY" LOZANO!â½ï¸â½ï¸â½ï¸ Con un pase preciso de Lozano, Pablo Rosario pone a la cabeza al #PSV en el minuto 28´.#ChampionsLeague #PSVInter #ChuckyLozano pic.twitter.com/eUhE4G4Mar — MEDIO DE CONTENCIÓN (@MedioDC) October 3, 2018 Arnaut Danjuma (Club Brugge vs Atletico Madrid) Thanks to Nigerian born Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld's stunner of a goal, both teams to score did come through on @Atleti vs Club Brugge #UCL game.

  15. Last year, Apple completely redesigned its flagship phone with the iPhone X and this year, the company double downed on the design. Apple introduced three new phones with the same design ethos but one has the largest screen on an iPhone ever. The new smartphones are powered by Apple's A12 Bionic Chipset and have better photography than ever before. All of which come with a premium price tag that may not sit well with everyone. We got the iPhone XS and XS Max to review and here's what we think about Apple's latest offerings: Design Language © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla When Apple unveiled the iPhone X, every smartphone company simply copied the design and started offering it on every smartphone. Apple has continued to implement the same design on the iPhone XS and XS Max. The larger smartphone carries more weight and offers a distinct took as the design has more or less remained unchanged. Apple did, however, introduce a new Gold colour that isn't jarring and easy on the eye. I'm not a big fan of Gold smartphones, but Apple outdid themselves this time and made the Gold version look sexy. Apart from the aesthetics, there are a few upgrades that are a first on an iPhone. The iPhone XS and XS Max are now IP68 water and dust resistant. It can stay submerged under water up to two meters in depth for a period of 30 minutes. It can also withstand accidental spills such as coffee, beer and other harmful liquids. The iPhone XS and XS Max also have extremely good stereo speakers. Its crisper, louder and can also pan sound from left to right effectively. You can notice the difference in sound when you watch an HDR video as we did during our briefing session. It's needless to say that you would be better off to purchase a smartphone case to protect your smartphone. Even though Apple is using a tougher Gorilla Glass, it is still prone to micro scratches that you may want to avoid. Display © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla This year the iPhone comes in two sizes i.e. with a 5.8-inch display while the XS Max sports a 6.5-inch display. If you are a fan of a smaller form factor like the classic iPhones, the XS will be the perfect smartphone for you. Having said that, we prefer the iPhone XS Max thanks to its massive screen and better viewing experience. Earlier, users would opt for the bigger iPhone because of the dual camera setup, however, the iPhone XS Max offers the same specifications as the iPhone XS apart from a larger battery. The 6.5-inch display on the iPhone XS is noticeably larger and can sometimes be difficult to access the control centre and notification panel from the top. However, the display itself is extremely vivid and bright which makes viewing videos and playing games an absolute delight. In fact, the iPhone XS Max even beat the Galaxy Note 9's screen in almost every parameter. The screen has HDR10 support and Dolby Vision which makes it even more worthy of an investment. The iPhone XS Max is almost the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus but offers more real estate on the screen thanks to the notch design. Apart from having a larger screen, the iPhone XS Max also offers some software tweaks to make it a more fluid experience. The new UI features make it easier for users to see more on the screen when you switch to landscape mode. It is quite reminiscent of the iPad iOS version, as once you switch the orientation, you can see more details in apps like Calendar, Safari and Mail. It's not all rosy though, as some caveats were noticed in the larger iPhone. For example, even though there is more screen space, you can only arrange the same number of apps on the home screen as the iPhone X/XS. Apple could have also shown the actual battery percentage on the top right corner due to the fact we have more room. Other issues involve with apps not being optimised for the larger iPhone XS Max. There aren't many apps that have an issue with the new resolution, however, there are some that need more fine-tuning. Performance The iPhone XS and XS Max are both powered by Apple's proprietary A12 Bionic chip clocked at 2.5 GHz. It has a noticeable performance upgrade from its predecessors and has double the improvement in the GPU. Both smartphones load up apps faster than before and are also faster when it comes to multitasking. You can swipe between apps without any glitches and performs better than the A11 Chip on the iPhone X. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Talking about Face ID, the iPhone XS and XS Max work the same way when setting up as the iPhone X. It scans your entire face and head so that it can accurately track every inch of your face. FaceID is now faster and more accurate than the iPhone X as we don't have to adjust our face any more. It unlocks fast even in low-low-light conditions which are a great feat, considering you don't have a fingerprint sensor anymore. Face ID also assists when you switch phones from an older iPhone. If you've stored your passwords in the iCloud password keychain, you will be able to login to each and every app without even typing your details. It has made switching to the new iPhone a breeze and is probably one of the most underrated features you will come across. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Coming to the processor's performance, the iPhone XS Max and XS more or less performed the same. During the course of our review, the iPhone XS Max and XS scored an impressive 4817 in the single-core test while it scored 11453 on the multi-core test on Geekbench 4. That's faster than the current fastest Android smartphone i.e. OnePlus 6. What's impressive is that iPhone XS/XS Max was able to achieve this score with half the RAM. This proves that it's not only about the specifications but also about how the software is fine-tuned with the goods under the hood. The A12 bionic chips' neural engine is where it all makes the difference, the new chipset can conduct 5 trillion operations per second, while its predecessor could only do 600 billion per second. Battery Life When it comes to battery life, iPhones generally tend to have smaller batteries when you compare it its competition. That's because it doesn't need a bigger battery thanks to the operating system and the efficiency of the A12 Bionic chip. The iPhone XS has a 2658 mAh battery while the XS Max has 3174 mAh battery. Both support fast charging, however, you will need to buy it separately. It is essential in 2018 as both smartphones take a considerable time to get fully charged. Both iPhones do have smaller batteries compared to the last generation but they do last longer than the previous iPhones, at least by 40 minutes. The smartphones would last up to 16 hours on a full charge where it involved us using the smartphone for heavy messaging, navigation, photography and gaming. The XS and XS Max both support Qi wireless charging so you can use any QI certified wireless charger to juice up your phone. Camera Performance © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The iPhone XS and XS Max have an identical vertical dual camera setup as the iPhone X but Apple has made some upgrades inside. The primary 12-MP sensor is larger i.e. 1.4-micron pixels to be specific, while the secondary 12-MP telephoto sensor remains the same. The fact that the sensor on the primary lens is bigger, it can let in more light when capturing images. This results in better and clearer low light images. Apple also introduces Smart HDR which is available exclusively on the new iPhones. This feature basically takes multiple shots and combines both underexposed and overexposed images to give you the best result. This is all possible because of the new A12 Bionic chip. The feature is enabled by default in the camera app which you can turn off if you want to take pictures manually. Portrait mode has also improved as it is capable of taking better bokeh sots. This time, however, you can also adjust the degree of the blur after you've taken a portrait image. It's not the first time we've seen this, as Samsung offered this feature on the Galaxy S8 last year. What's cool with Apple's Portrait mode is that you can change the blur from f/4.5 lens all the way to f/1.4 Here are a few samples of the images we took with the iPhone XS and XS Max in both low light and well lit scenarios: View this post on Instagram Shots using the #iPhoneXSMax and #iPhoneXS A post shared by Akshay Bhalla (@editorinchief) on Oct 1, 2018 at 1:18am PDT The Final Say © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Apple's new smartphones feel, look and perform great. The company has delivered a flagship phone that actually delivers what it promises. We would have liked to see a longer lasting battery and an actual bundled fast charger. The screen on both XS and XS Max are amongst the best and are coupled with outstanding stereo speakers. Having said that, the iPhone XS and XS Max do have a hefty price tag in India that may not be in everybody's reach. However, if you are looking for a worthy investment, we feel you should invest in the iPhone XS Max.
  16. Do you know what's worse than a cockroach sitting on your bed? A flying cockroach that disappears the moment you try to shoo it away. The fear of knowing that there is a cockroach in your room that you can't see and sleeping on that bed where it was last seen, is inexplicable. Also, did you know there is something called 'Katsaridaphobia'? Well, it's the fear of cockroaches. via GIPHY The first thing that most of us do when we see a dead cockroach is stay as far as possible, but this man went a step ahead and held a funeral, after solving its murder case. Confused? While walking out of his office using the fire stairwell, Imgur user called The Disney Dad, would daily notice this lonely dead cockroach. Instead of walking past him, he decides to turn his life and that of the cockroach interesting by giving its death a mysterious turn. So, here's how it unfolds. Over a month's time, he creates hilarious dioramas. The story begins with the lonely cockroach celebrating its birthday with a cake and a gift, which the guy leaves next to it. Imgur Imgur Looks like the cockroach partied a little too hard, "but he drank too much at the party and vomited...He was there so long that the paramedics came." Imgur But turns out the cockroach was dead so police were called and it soon became a crime scene. Imgur Things aren't over yet. While the investigation was underway, the guy held a funeral (a good one) for the cockroach. Imgur Imgur "The stairwell was finally cleaned, and it was all taken away, but undeterred a scene appeared from the offices of the SVU." Imgur Finally, after a lot of interrogation, the culprit was finally found. And the culprit is none other than Louie the Fly from the Mortein ads. Why Louie, why did you take the life of that innocent cockroach? Imgur This hilarious story finally came to an end and just like the guy, we all had fun. The HR and his bos should just give this man a raise, solely for coming up with this amazing story.
  17. When it comes to superheroes, most of us have our favourites from either Marvel or DC. This is a rivalry that was created long back and will always be open to debate. When it comes to movies, Marvel is the clear winner, if we consider box office performances, while DC is struggling with scripts. The last movies of a DC superhero that I truly loved was the Batman Trilogy, although they weren't the part of DC cinematic universe. Despite the below par performance of DC movies, I still enjoy them more than I enjoy the ones by Marvel, though. Following are the reasons which strengthen my argument that DC is better than Marvel: 1. Character Depth It was a delight to see the transformation of Bruce Wayne from the 'Batman Trilogy to 'Batman vs. Superman'. Where Nolan's Bruce was younger and more optimistic, DCEU's Bruce was mature and slightly darker. This transformation was brilliantly scripted because usually when we see a superhero, there's hardly any change in the character. But the character development here was astonishing and overwhelming. © Warner Bros. This is where Marvel lacks. Except for suits & the beard of Captain America, Marvel has barely changed anything in its superheroes. The cocky-ness of Iron Man is great but eventually, it gets boring seeing it again and again. 2. Toughness I would like to blame Disney for this one. Remember 'The Incredible Hulk'? He was scary! One would think twice before messing with him. Then Disney came into the picture & suddenly the Hulk turned into a PG-13 version of his former self. © Universal Pictures What we saw after that was a soft Hulk and a series of 'childish' movies. Apart from Logan, no other movie of a Marvel superhero is good enough for an adult fan. They are soft, the storyline is not deep, and they barely scratch the surface when it comes to dark villains. Against the entire MCU, just one guy from DC is enough – Superman. 3. Posters Posters from Marvel movies are, well, boring! They are clean, quiet & again, lack the depth. On the other hand, posters from DC movies are stirring and dark, like the franchise itself. © Marvel From the Marvel posters, we get the feel of a family film which we should watch with kids. And that is certainly not a compliment if you're a diehard superhero fan. 4. Embracing The Dark Side Marvel is all about fighting against villains and saving the world. DC is much more than that. DC openly shows the struggles of superheroes. Remember 'Justice League'? Batman knew he was old now. Contrary to his popular belief, he accepted he can't work alone. © Warner Bros. Remember 'Wonder Woman'? The movie was more about her internal struggle to stay home or to be set free in the outside world and less about defeating the villain. You don't see such depths in Marvel movies. Maybe in 'Infinity War', but it was still an 'Ohh, there's a bad guy. Let's defeat him' kinda movie. Marvel needs to grow up! 5. TV Series If we compare the first season of 'Arrow' and 'Daredevil', the former was way better. I'll tell you why! 'Arrow' developed the character from scratch. There was a background associated with each and every move that he learned. A flashback where we got to see how our superhero learned various techniques and his struggles to survive torturous conditions. © The CW When I watched 'Daredevil', all I found was some blind guy who trained some blind kid. That's it! There was no 'how.' That's why I found Season 1 of 'Daredevil' to be one of the most overrated seasons. To sum it up, Marvel lacks maturity. It is no longer the world where superheroes are just for kids. I can't say that I could ever find Iron Man better than Batman, but at least Marvel can try to make films keeping the adult audience in mind.
  18. We usually have a lot to say to the ones we love and the most obvious way to begin, seems to be with an “I love you”, which is only fair 'cause that's just how the matters of the heart have been dealt with, since time immemorial. This is the universal 'Step 1' of confessing your love to your beloved and we wouldn't dare to challenge it. However, we felt that since times are changing and our generation relates better to puns and catchphrases, isn't it time that we figured out other witty yet effective ways of expressing our feelings around such themes, that are more than just those 'three special words'? Read on to find out about 15 other witty alternatives to 'I love you' and still express your feelings in the most genuine and heartfelt way: © Mensxp Can you say it any better than that? You will love to be that person who lights them up from within and so much so, that they lose sight of the reality. Sounds like love no? © Mensxp Well, that should be impactful coming from you, especially if this is the best you can manage in the kitchen, apart from that hard boiled egg you get right occasionally? © Mensxp You know it right? You would rather not move out of the house and not bother the stubble that is not going to meet a razor for another few weeks if possible. But for her, you are more than willing to look presentable and suave. © Mensxp Yes, that is something any girl would love to hear, and be sure to let her know whenever it happens with this line, and that is sure to be the highlight of her day. Because who doesn't love to know they can make another person happy? © Mensxp If you can't figure out the right words to express your feelings, this witty line will surely come to your rescue. © Mensxp Ah, this one is a good way to let her know you are in it for the long haul. But be sure to say this only if you really mean it. What's the point in hurting someone's feelings? © Mensxp Yes, there are girls who are into such movies and if you are with someone who shares this passion, then this might just be the perfect way of confessing to her! © Mensxp At times when you really want to tell her how beautiful she has made your life by being in it, and simple words fail you, this is the line to go with. © Mensxp She will be around for you through thick and thin, so what could be a better way of expressing your appreciation than this line? © Mensxp Yes, the couple that drinks together stays together. So tell her that with this line and you're sure to get a great big hug and all the rest that follows too hopefully. *winks* © Mensxp Nerd/studious girlfriends exist. So what could be a nicer way of expressing yourself to them than in a language they are accustomed to? © Mensxp When she looks uber hot, that is what you've gotta say to her, instead of whatever is actually running through your mind! © Mensxp She's got crazy cooking skills? Well, this one is surely a win-win to compliment both all at once. © Mensxp When you are in too deep and staying apart is a pain, this is how you convey that without sounding creepy. © Mensxp Again, only say this if you mean it. Both these things are matters of life and death, so if you really mean that you'll hit pause during a movie/match to take her call, this is just what you need. Nice right? Use 'em!
  19. Anil Kapoor keeps on making never-before-seen, savage appearances so often, that now it's become a staple for us to look forward to the newest instance of his inimitable style game every week. He didn't disappoint us this week, and appeared with a beard style that made us go 'Woah'. Take a look. (c) Viral Bhayani Mr Kapoor is sporting a beard that's the definition of a 'statement beard'. We're sure it started out as 'Salt-n-Pepper', but he went ahead and gave it a twist only he could have pulled off. (c) Viral Bhayani The black, sharp handlebar moustache compliments the white beard beautifully, while the whole structure rests on a bed of scruffy salt-n-pepper awesomeness. Facial hair goals, you say? Look right here we say. (c) Viral Bhayani Coming to his outfit, we can't get over how classy he can make a regular blue suit look. Like a true-blue gentleman with all the sartorial know-how, he made sure he buttoned up only the top button of his blazer, and paired it up with an elegant grey tie. (c) Viral Bhayani Now, why we think his beard kicks all the other beards' butt: 1. If you're planning on sporting a beard style that will make your handlebar moustache look better than ever, just go for this one. The contrast of the black on top of the white will give you that raw, but classy edge. 2. If you want to stand apart from the crowd, this is one style that will do the trick in a heartbeat. Noticeable? Hell yeah! 3. White hair beard is in. It has nothing to do with how old you are. If you really want to, go for a white dye to steal everyone's thunder. Also, if you naturally have white facial hair, it's a win-win!
  20. SRK isn't your regular dad. He's a savage dad. Well, he sure keeps on proving it every now and then. From being wittier than his kids on social media to dressing better than them, he knows how to remind them time and again about who's the boss. The latest instance was his appearance with daughter Suhana at the airport, where he wore a black overcoat - which we are tempted to call - wait for it - the 'Baap of all Overcoats'. © Viral Bhayani The jet black, futuristic looking overcoat with bold silver buttons is pretty much the prototype for what an alpha dad should wear to keep potential suitors in check (not that he needs to, it's Shah Rukh Khan we're talking about, duh.) © Viral Bhayani The super relaxed silhouette composed of a pair of comfortable black trousers and a grey T-shirt underneath is perfect to be paired with a statement overcoat on top. Talk about functional style! © Viral Bhayani Suhana might have been on the cover of 'Vogue', but Shah Rukh here sure knows what's in vogue. Look at the all-too-conspicuous swag with those black sunnies - how matrix meets alpha dad is that? © Viral Bhayani We like how he has chosen to wear a pair of grey sneakers to break free from the possible monotony the all-black would have brought forth. Good call there, SRK! © Viral Bhayani All we can say is that we feel for Suhana and Aryan (AbRam is too young to care, tbh). After all, having your dad dress better than you can be a lot of pressure!
  21. It's been 19 years since Sushmita Sen gave us the iconic 'Dilbar Dilbar' and well, she's here to revisit it again and prove once and for all that she's the real OG. But, before we proceed, here's the original version, not just because you just gotta watch it for old school feels, but the extremely hot Sushmita. As everyone knows that almost all new hit songs in Bollywood these days are mostly just remakes of old and legendary songs and obviously, 'Dilbar' didn't escape that 'remix' treatment. The new 'Dilbar' is a big hit, of course it was bound to be one, and it's the only song we've heard on the radio for the last couple of months. It's everywhere, literally. The video is also really cool, with Nora Fatehi totally living up to all the expectations anyone could have. But, as good as this was, no one can beat Sush and I mean no one. Sorry, Nora. Just a few minutes ago Sushmita posted a video of herself dancing to the new version of her song and well, she's also indirectly saying that she's here to reclaim her crown. View this post on Instagram #dilbar was always a #feeling ððµð #groovy #coreworkout #lastnight ððð Don't miss my friend Sreejaya's absolute focus in shooting this video!!!ðâ¤ï¸ I missed you @farahkhankunder ð#lovereloaded #dilbardilbar “Tell me you guys saw the wink”ððâ¤ï¸ #naughtyme love you guys!!! #keepgrooving ðµð A post shared by Sushmita Sen (@sushmitasen47) on Sep 7, 2018 at 6:52am PDT The queen has arrived and has already dethroned Nora in just 37 seconds. Ouch, that's gotta hurt.
  22. The power of organic produce seems to have caught up with every other person we meet today and believe us, as much as we love our pizzas, Kathi rolls and monster shakes, the need of the hour is a switch from all the refined and adulterated eating habits to a more balanced and organic one. Use of green manure and natural pest control is the only way for us to get past the imminent threat that chemically produced foods pose to mankind. Numerous lifestyle diseases seem to have surfaced over the past decade or so, that have been unheard of until now. Most of those diseases stem from the kind of food we put into our system. © MensXP This is the dominant reason why more and more people are making a conscious effort to go organic both in terms of produce as well as their personal food habits. The same concerns and lack of easy access to fresh, organic produce propelled Ashmeet Kapoor to take matters into his own hands. Back in 2011 Ashmeet began to look for 'genuine' organic produce to incorporate into his regular diet but wasn't satisfied with whatever was on offer in the local markets. He also realised how the lives of most Indian farmers had become stagnant with no growth in the sector to support them and better their products. © MensXP This made him start his own venture 'I Say Organic', a delivery and retail outlet that's a product of a year-long research and learning organic farming in rural India. Ashmeet's aim was to make organic food more accessible to the common man. Ashmeet is a Brown University post-graduate in Entrepreneurship who realised that it is, in fact, socio-environmental impact and development where his true calling lay. Hence, after completing his graduation he visited thousands of farmers in rural India, joined hands with them and decided to make all of our lives better by bringing genuine organic produce to our doorstep. © MensXP The aim of 'I Say Organic' is to make organic food a norm in India while ensuring that consumers come to believe in it and trust the produce delivered to them. However, when Ashmeet started out, the challenge was to convince the consumers that the non-organic food making its way into their system is truly harmful. Price, availability and accessibility of good organic food also played a role in subsisting this sentiment. © MensXP However, once he located organic farmer groups across UP, Himachal Pradesh and Haryana, he slowly began to chart out the way forward. With tremendous research and personal investments on the line, Ashmeet finally launched the 'I Say Organic' website in 2012. He started out by sourcing from the farmers and delivering pulses, spices, rice and oil to the consumers besides vegetables and fruits. The company has since expanded to open a retail outlet complete with a cafe in Gurgaon's South Point Mall. © MensXP This has not only brought him closer to his aim to make organic food more accessible but has also helped better the lives of thousands of farmers by giving them an opportunity to sustain on organic farming. The venture even converted Ashmeet to go vegan merely 6 months into the business because he realised how adulterated most available veggies and fruits are. From delivering 10 orders in a day when they started out to averaging on 100 orders today, they have come a long way. © MensXP Ashmeet's story elucidates how you can set out on a journey that's close to your heart and change the lives(and hearts) of millions of people in the process. Organic is the way to go, and we hope to see the big change being ushered in by Ashmeet Kapoor's 'I Say Organic'.

  24. The process of digestion is important, as this is where the breaking down of food into nutrients happen, which then the body uses for energy, growth, and cell repair. Food and drink that we consume pre or post workout must be changed into smaller molecules of nutrients before the blood can absorb them and carry them to the various cells throughout the body. The three storage places are muscle glycogen, liver glycogen and fat cells. The body breaks down these nutrients that we consume into macro nutrients such as carbohydrates, protein, fats, and micro nutrients such as vitamins and minerals. © Thinkstock Digestion And Weight Loss Not many people are aware but the impact of digestion on weight loss is significant. Digestion is the process of breaking down food so that the body can use it for energy for various activities throughout the day, apart from giving you the energy to lift those heavy weights. Without proper digestion, the body would find it difficult to absorb the nutrients it needs for health functioning for your whole body. Improper digestion will keep you constantly hungry, storing fuel in the form of adipose tissue (fat) instead of using it immediately for its required purposes. How To Improve The Process Of Digestion For Fat Loss? More Fiber If you have a healthy digestive system, this will ensure your weight-loss plan will be successful. One way to improve your digestion to accelerate fat loss would be to make sure to consume enough fibre and fluids. Increasing your physical activity in any way will contribute to the calorie expenditure. Remember, any physical activity done for the body will burn calories. Even digestion burns calories; although you cannot compare it to the calorie burn from physical activity, doing anything healthy to ensure calorie expenditure would be great. Thermogenic effects of food needs to be taken into consideration, foods that take longer to break down will help with the calorie expenditure. © Thinkstock What Fiber Does Fibrous food has a higher Thermogenic effect, which means it takes time to digest. It challenges your digestive enzymes. Since it is not broken down completely but stays intact partially it passes through your digestive tract. As it travels, it forms a gel and absorbs some excess fat, cholesterol and sugar, which is passed through your stool. Foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seed, beans and legumes provide fibre. Also vegetables such as greens, tomatoes, broccoli and eggplant are good low-calorie options for weight loss. High-fibre foods are more nutritious than their low-fibre alternatives; whole grains offer more nutrients than refined white grains. High-fibre foods contain more vitamins and minerals important for your metabolism. Fluids Fluid consumption is important for weight loss and proper digestion because you need fluids for a lot of body functions. In terms of convenience, moving food through your digestive tract and clearing out the waste from your body. Drinking insufficient water will cause dehydration and dehydration can cause constipation, which can lead to weight gain from bloating. You need to drink at least 1 glass of water every 1 hour. Not many people know this but thirst is already an indication that the body is dehydrated. Drinking less water will also cause problems such as fatigue. Consulting with your sports nutritionist about your fluid needs, especially if you tend to retain water under the skin is very important. How much water one needs to drink is a question and will depend on many factors, including current health status, weight and activity level, weather and geographical locations. Conclusion The process of human excreting is very simple if enough fiber and fluids are present in the body. If they aren't, problems like bloating, constipation and irritable bowel syndrome show up. This can and will in longer runs mess with your fat loss or muscle building goals. Helius is one of Mumbai's most promising fitness professionals and part time kettle bell lecturer.
