  1. In what initially felt like a show completely run by the home team, Rajasthan Royals, the young guns of Delhi Capitals were successful in snatching the win from right under their noses as opener Prithvi Shaw and keeper-batsman Rishabh Pant along with veteran Shikhar Dhawan shine in the second innings of the match. The Capitals looked in the winning attitude ever since the beginning and an impressive to of 191 felt like a rather comfortable chase, especially with the kind of opening partnership established by two of the more talented batsmen who have represented Team India in the past. With Shaw's strategic yet powerful batting and Dhawan's brutal beating, the duo was able to post a 50-run partnership in less than six overs. .@SDhawan25 REACHES HIS FOURTH FIFTY OF THIS @IPL SEASON! ðª GABBAR, WE LOVE YOU! ð#RRvDC #ThisIsNewDelhi #DelhiCapitals pic.twitter.com/43h5MaIgyV — Delhi Capitals (@DelhiCapitals) April 22, 2019 Once Gabbar was dismissed by keeper Sanju Samson in a cheeky stumping and Delhi skipper Shreyas Iyer was forced to leave the pitch early, it was Rishabh Pant's time to hold the fort with his buddy, Shaw. The 19-year-old continued to stick to the crease for enough time for Pant to comfortably settle in, while also scoring at his own pace to keep the contest at hand. Scoring 78 off just 36 balls, Pant played a brilliant match-winning knock and was rewarded for his performance with the 'Man of the Match' award as the two went on to establish a 53-run-partnership in 31 balls. The camaraderie was seen yet again when the duo was asked to interview one another after the match. “I was really confident because you (Prithvi) were also playing by my side. I thought we would finish the game together,” Pant told his teammate. Pant also described the winning moment when he finished the game with a six and the team's special advisor, Sourav Ganguly lifted him in celebration. Rishabh pant â¦@RishabPant777â© â¦@ParthJindal11â© u deserve this .. u r wow pic.twitter.com/tTYgWrZZpH — Sourav Ganguly (@SGanguly99) April 22, 2019 “He (Ganguly) wanted me to finish a good match for the team and when it finally happened, it was a great experience, especially when Sourav sir lifted me up,” Pant told Shaw. With the heroic display of “showing up in the crunch”, the young duo helped their franchise reach atop the IPL Points Table, going two points ahead of the reigning champions, Chennai Super Kings. The same team that ranked last in the league a year ago, are at the top now. Maybe changing their name did bring them good luck, huh?
  2. The 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is already proving to be a scintillating affair. The 39 games in the tournament so far, have been full of exciting duels that have managed to capture the imagination of cricket fans. But, apart from catching all the cricketing action through various mediums, the fans have also relished numerous fantasy sports platforms that continue to garner engagement. While a bit of cash and some bragging rights continue to entice the fans, the rise of fantasy sports platforms has also allowed individuals to test their knowledge of the game and players involved. But, picking the winning team is far more than difficult than it seems. Anyone can pick players on their star value, but those who've found themselves addicted to the fantasy leagues would agree that it requires a careful deliberation of facts, figures and performances of the cricketers before one drafts them in what can potentially become a winning team. With Match 40 of the season pitting Delhi Capitals (DC) against Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Sawai Mansingh stadium in Jaipur tonight, here's a look at the Dream XI you can pick that to trump your mates and earn some cash in the fantasy sports leagues: Captain & His Deputy © Twitter/@IPL Arguably one of the most difficult decisions to make in the fantasy sports league, picking the right captain and his deputy can undoubtedly make or break your chances. Going into tonight's clash, it will be a big mistake if you appoint anyone other than Kagiso Rabada as captain and Steve Smith as the vice-captain of the team. Undeniably one of the most effective bowlers across formats in international cricket, Rabada has been the bowling spearhead of Delhi this season. The South African has immense knowledge of the game which allows him to read the situations well and, thereon, act accordingly. His consistency will the ball can be ascertained from the fact that he currently leads the list of leading wicket-takers with 21 scalps in 10 games. While Rabada has been pivotal for Delhi, Smith, after a bit of hiccup, seems to have found his form to establish himself as a vital cog in Rajasthan's batting line-up. The Australian batting sensation has amassed 245 runs in eight games so far in the tournament. And, his unbeaten knock of 59 runs in the last game paved way for Rajasthan's five-wicket triumph over Mumbai Indians (MI). The Man Behind The Stumps © Twitter/@IPL When it comes to the wicket-keeping duties in India, none comes close to the stature of MS Dhoni. But, in today's game, the choice of selecting a wicket-keeper between Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson is quite obvious. There is little doubt over the capabilities of Pant behind the stumps. Dhoni's pupil has been the first-choice keeper for Delhi and continues to prove his worth with the gloves. His lightning-quick glovework led to the end of dangerous KL Rahul and Mandeep Singh in the last game against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). And, the fact that he is a prolific batsman, further makes him a great addition to your Dream XI. The World Cup snub might have dampened his mood, but make no mistake, Pant will leave no stone unturned to use the ongoing IPL season as a platform to question the Indian selectors over their surprise decision. Jack Of All Trades © Twitter/@IPL Deriving a right mix of all-rounders is another crucial task that can help you rake in the points, and in turn, the moolah. Their ability to make their presence felt in almost all facets of the game make the all-rounders a vital cog in any dream team. So, for tonight's game, a winning dream team must include the likes of Riyan Parag and Axar Patel. The belligerence of 17-year-old Parag turned out to be Rajasthan's mantra of success when he overshadowed Smith during the course of their match-winning partnership against Mumbai in the last match. When it comes to the bowling department, the U-19 World Cup winner's leg-break can also do the trick. While he might not have taken a single wicket in the two games he has played so far, the third youngest player to feature in the IPL should still be a valuable pick for any dream team. If Parag has come into his own for Rajasthan, Patel has been quietly doing the job for Delhi this season. The left-arm spinner has taken six wickets in eight games this season. And, his impressive figures of 2-22 in the last game also contributed in Delhi's five-wicket win over Punjab. Batting down the order, Patel hasn't had many opportunities, but the fact that his strike-rate is 135 and he has slammed six fours and three sixes, proves that he can come in handy with the willow. The Bat-Wielding Warriors © Twitter/@IPL The likes of Smith and Shikhar Dhawan forge a formidable opening pair for any dream team. While Smith looks to build on his form for Rajasthan, Dhawan's rediscovery with the willow has eased the burden on Delhi's middle-order. The Indian opener is currently the leading run-getter for Delhi with 347 runs in 10 games to his name. And, his 41-ball 56 against Punjab proved to be a key contribution for Delhi in the last match. In a bid to bolster the batting line-up, Shreyas Iyer can also prove to be a valuable addition to your dream team, surely boosting the chances of raking in key points. The Delhi skipper possesses all the shots in his armoury and has the capability of taking on any bowling attack. He has amassed 327 runs in 10 games and his unbeaten 58 in the last game against Punjab was pivotal in Delhi's five-wicket triumph. Last, but not the least, Sherfane Rutherford (a wild pick) is the final batsman in our dream team for tonight's game. Often labelled as Guyana's Andre Russell, the 20-year-old might be an unknown commodity in the IPL, but that shouldn't overshadow his ability to hit the ball far and long. The swashbuckling left-hander is an exciting young talent who is rapidly rising through the ranks. Apart from that, Rutherford's medium pace can also help you grab some points. The Bowling Demons © Twitter/@IPL Fire-breathing Rabada leads the bowling attack for our dream team. The South African has made the most of the new ball and has the ability to strike in the middle overs to give Delhi vital breakthroughs. He would be well assisted by Jofra Archer, another bowler who has managed to make the tournament his own with impressive performances. Archer was dealt with a heavy blow after he was snubbed by the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for the ICC World Cup. But, just like Pant, Archer would be eager to take in a positive stride and make the most of his time in the IPL this season. In the spin-bowling department, the likes of Sandeep Lamichhane and Shreyas Gopal should have you covered. Both the spinners have done well for their respective sides this season and could help you extract key points in tonight's game. Dream XI: Kagiso Rabada (c), Steve Smith (vc), Rishabh Pant (wk), Riyan Parag, Axar Patel, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Sherfane Rutherford, Sandeep Lamichhane, Jofra Archer and Shreyas Gopal.
  3. The wait has finally ended. Winter came at 6:30 am IST on Hotstar, with the 'Game of Thrones' Season 8 premiere airing after more than 500 days since last season concluded. Almost all living characters got screen time as multiples storylines seem to be coming together for one last time.' Please don't read any further if you haven't watched the episode yet, as this post contains heavy spoilers. As usual, there was death, there was *** and there certainly were dragons. Whitewalkers remained out of sight but did send some strong messages. The internet, no wonder, was abuzz with multiple theories, predictions and memes. But one particular Reddit user called DukeOfTheVines drew parallels between the pilot of the first season and the latest Season 8 instalment. Here it goes: “The opening shot of the King/Queen arriving with the same music” According to the redditor, the same track plays in the background of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen's arrival in Winterfell as to the one at the time of Robert Baratheon's entrance in Season 1 Episode 1. © HBO The tunes do bear resemblance, and why not? The Iranian-German composer Ramin Djawadi, who had composed 'The King's Arrival' in the show's debut season, has returned to lend tunes to the final one as well. “Arya being a kid watching the King coming vs her letting a kid get a good view of the Queen coming” Arya Stark is shown rejoicing at her brother (not by blood anymore) Jon Snow's return. The duo was thick as thieves while growing up and has reunited after their lives have come full circle. In fact the 'girl with no name' still carries the sword (Needle) that Jon gave her as a kid. © HBO “Both episodes ending with Bran and Jamie, except this time Jamie looks scared” This has to be my favourite scene from the season. A cloaked Jamie Lannister arrives on a horse to Winterfell only to find Bran Stark, now the greenseer and also the boy who Jamie pushed out from a tower, waiting for him. You can actually feel the fear in Jamie's eyes at the sight. © HBO “Both episodes have amputated limbs from the white walkers spread out in a gory way to send a message” The heir of Hosue Umber, Ned was found decapitated with limbs all around him in this episode. Remember the first ever GoT episode where the White Walkers make their first "artwork" and create a symbol in the snow using the dismembered body parts of the slaughtered wildlings? “In the pilot, Cersi and Catelyn Stark talk about their kids possibly getting married while looking at them from a distance, while in this episode Varys, Tyrion, and Davos talk about Dany and Jon getting married while looking at them from a distance” While the idea of Jon and Dany's potential romance is exciting (and really not taboo considering the incestuous history of House Lannister), the foreboding metaphor in the episode is 'nothing lasts forever.' Let's see how this one goes, especially after Sam's conversation with Jon (or Aegon?). “The kid from the beginning was climbing on trees to get a good view, similar to Bran climbing the castle to get a good view. He also looked similar to Bran in the Pilot” Will the kid also end up losing limbs? “In the Pilot, all the shots of Winterfell showed the grass but now it's all snow” Winter has come? Other interesting observations made by Redditors: /u/Itsgreenarrow: Also S1E1 Ned's farewell to Jon he says “the next time we see each other, We will talk about your mother. I promise.” Then S8E1 while Jon is staring at Ned's tomb Sam tell him about his parents /u/friggindiggin: First episode Jon is distraught over his identity crisis as a bastard. This episode Jon is distraught over his identity crisis as a king. /u/enfinnity: The brothel scene with Bron is similar to Tyrion's first scene /u/JaqueStrap69: Also Jon asking Sansa "Where's Arya?" When he arrived, just like Ned asking "Where's Arya?" /u/ChavaF1: The current ruler of Winterfell saying “Winterfell is yours” to the arriving monarch /u/sarahj2010: Also loved the line from Robert Baratheon in the pilot to Ned 'I have a son, you have a daughter, we shall join our houses'. It's gotta be Arya and Gendry. /u/SaiyanAintSo: Also Sansa being more than wary of Dany, much like Catelyn was of Cersei. She really seemed like her mother in that meet and greet. © HBO /u/Dualstack: Also Robert asking Ned to be his hand in the crypts kind of similar to Sam telling Jon he is king in the crypts /u/Skeetronic: Don't forget Cersei putting out to someone she's not 'loyal' to But isn't that the norm for Cersei? What were your big observations from the premiere5? Let us know in the comments.
  4. 2019 has come bearing good news for both Bollywood actors and film-goers alike. Many A-listers of the Hindi film industry seem to have succeeded in carrying forward their success run from the year gone by, and taken the box office by storm within months of 2019. View this post on Instagram Certified Chhava â #gullyboy A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Feb 7, 2019 at 10:18am PST Be it Ranveer Singh with 'Padmaavat', 'Simmba' and 'Gully Boy', Vicky Kaushal with 'Raazi', 'Manmarziyan' and 'Uri' or Kartik Aaryan with 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety' and 'Luka Chuppi', these actors have successfully managed to sway the audience with stellar hits even this year.

The most recent addition this inside scoop is Ranbir's photo from an early look test. View this post on Instagram Rumi. First, he was Rumi. Rumi with long hair. This image is from an early look test for the movie. Rumi said, 'Love is the bridge between you and everything...', and that feeling is the foundation we started building the protagonist of this movie on... But then, there was new inspiration, newer thoughts... Dragon became BrahmÄstra, we gave Ranbir a haircut, and Rumi became... Shiva. #brahmastra #shivadiaries #memories #creativeprocess #evolving A post shared by Ayan Mukerji (@ayan_mukerji) on Mar 9, 2019 at 10:48pm PST By Ayan's own admission, Ranbir in the photo was meant to be called Rumi and have a personality that resonated with its namesake. However, over time Rumi changed into Shiva and underwent a makeover that stripped him of this previous persona that surely had close resemblances to Ranbir's 2011 character from 'Rockstar', Janardhan 'Jordan' Jakhar. View this post on Instagram Am I the only one that considers Rockstar is one of the best movies of Bollywood ? . . . I wanted my life to be like that of JANARDAN /JORDAN. The portrayal of childish nature of Janardan and then the drastic change to JORDANIAN nature takes the movie to a whole new level.Though you don't share anything common with the character but somehow you get connected to it .As the movie passes you slowly feel for him and psychologically starts to believe yourself to be the character. His passionate and unconditional love for “HEER” makes the movie more special.There is also a special character which plays an important role in the life of Janardan and that's of “Kharata bhai” who is the owner of the college canteen and also someway the mentor of Janardan.His advice to janardan on singing ”SANGEET TOOTE HUE DIL SE HE NIKAL SAKTA HAY “ became the reason for janardan to become JORDAN. Songs in the movie also played a key role in transformation of the character.We cant imagine the song “Tum Ho” without Mohit chauhan. It is a classic movie and only a section of audience has the capacity of understanding the beauty portrayed in the movie. I would like to end my writing with some beautiful quotes written by RUMI “THE WOUND IS THE PLACE WHERE LIGHT ENTERS YOU “ “OUT BEYOND IDEAS OF WRONG AND RIGHT,THERE IS A FIELD I WILL MEET YOU THERE” #ranbirkapoor #rockstar #ranbirrockstar #ranbirkapoorfan #ranbirkapoorlove #ranbirkapoorlove #imtiaz #imtiazali #rockstarmovie #rumi #bollywood #bollywoodbest #saddahaq #nargisfakhri #nargis #piyushmishra #moviescenes #movierecommendation #movieworld A post shared by Filmy Freak (@filmy.freak) on Aug 6, 2018 at 1:32am PDT According to reports, the first part of the 'Brahmastra' trilogy has been titled Love, and after Ayan's recent insightful message and previously shared photos, it seems that he has decided to make the most of real life couple Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt's first film collaboration, and play on their new-found love in each other. View this post on Instagram Part 1: Love #brahmastra (P.S.: going to take some getting used to this new Instagram life) A post shared by Ayan Mukerji (@ayan_mukerji) on Mar 4, 2019 at 4:30am PST 'Brahmastra' stars biggies like Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, Dimple Kapadia and Mouni Roy, and is all set to hit the theatres on Christmas 2019.
  5. “Let him go if he wants to! We have Gareth Bale to lead us to victory,” they said less than a year ago when former Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo decided to sign with Juventus in July of 2018, to play in Italy for a massive €100 million contract. 8 months since Ronaldo bid adieu to Spain and Los Blancos have found themselves in one of the biggest slumps of their entire history. Losing badly to Amsterdamsche Football Club Ajax (AFC Ajax) in the round of 16 matchup, the Luca Modric-led team was knocked out of the Champions League in a 1-4 (3-5 on aggregate) goals defeat. Dreams DO come true! ð¤¤#UCL #reaaja pic.twitter.com/TOmJcGz824 — AFC Ajax (@AFCAjax) March 5, 2019 While the Dutch football club were nearly perfect during last night's showdown, the spotlight was drawn on the unbelievably disappointing end of the Champions League reign of Real Madrid who were not only the most recent trophy holders, but also have seen the most success in the history of the annual club football competition with 13 titles in total. However, the player who came under the bus during yesterday's shameful loss was the Wales international Gareth Bale, who started the match sitting on the bench but entered the game in just 30 minutes after Lucas Vazquez suffered an injury. Bale, who hasn't scored at home for Los Blancos at home this year, suffered to find the net yet again and despite shooting for the post once, failed to impress the Real Madrid fans. To make things worse, Bale, who has the infamous reputation of being injury-prone, twisted his ankle while going for a header and ended up on the grass, crying in pain. Not good for Bale #waleswatch pic.twitter.com/Wz9J0PqO4D — James Holt ó §ó ¢ó ·ó ¬ó ³ó ¿ (@james_scfc88) March 5, 2019 His 'okay-ish'(?) performance was not appreciated by the people of Madrid who even went on to vote the 29-year-old as the worst Real Madrid player to play in yesterday's Champions League loss. Such stark difference in the performance of an organisation like Real Madrid, who looked more like a middle-order team this season instead of the champions they were, led to people speculating the absence of Ronaldo's brilliance that he used to bring to the table as the reason behind Real's downwards spiral and how Gareth Bale has failed to fill the Portuguese's shoes. When Perez asked Bale to step into Ronaldo's shoes pic.twitter.com/9MyTS5EU3k — Chidiebere Ogu ™ï¸ (@chyngyozil) March 5, 2019 Madrid underestimated Ronaldo. You don't lose 1 of the best ever players, replace him with a mortal in Bale and expect the same. Bale doesn't have the personality. Ronaldo is weirdly unphased by hate. It's weird.

  6. Yes, the need for protesting the gross and infamous terror attack in Pulwama is the utmost right now. Throughout history, India's 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam' ideology has been stretched, moulded and abused on a global stage in the most disturbing manner ever. For years, India's stand on not being the first one to go on the attack in a bilateral rivalry, has been understood as our weakness instead of our political maturity and we are running out of patience really fast now. However, this does not mean that we lose our ability to make rational decisions. While the BCCI officials were taking their time deciding how they'd deal with the rival Pakistani squad during the upcoming World Cup 2019, if they would boycott them during the points-round or campaign for a complete ban on the Pakistani cricket team, another lead on BCCI's unrealistic measure towards the Pakistan Cricket Board came to the fore recently. According to Indian Express, BCCI had plans to isolate Pakistan by putting all the foreign players in a 'Us Or Them' situation, forcing them to choose between playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and the Pakistan Super League (PSL). What needs to be realised is that while the IPL is more of a gold mine for these international players, (some of whom earn double of their annual salary by playing for 6 weeks here), Pakistan's security concerns, on the other hand, has led to their hesitations towards playing in the country. However, South African cricket legend AB de Villiers was one of the most influential stars to have publicly announced his willingness to play there in order to bring in more such stars. A special message from our mentor and player @ABdeVilliers17 “Main Lahore A Raha Hun” ð¤©#DamaDamMast #MainHoonQalandar pic.twitter.com/Ye8j65Jwxl — Lahore Qalandars (@lahoreqalandars) January 14, 2019 BCCI's plan to, therefore, make things difficult for PCB to bring in international cricketers and grow their viewership, seemed highly opportune but insensitive. According to the report, the Committee of Administrators (CoA) officials along with BCCI CEO Rahul Johri gathered to draw a conclusion of this idea. Thankfully, the authority decided against the notion deeming it inappropriate to force the international players to choose between the two cricket leagues. Why? Simply because of the fact that it is the IPL franchises (that are privately owned) and not the BCCI that take up the players during the auction. Putting the players under such predicament would, therefore, lead to disappointed team owners. Basically, the whole facade boiled down to the fact that any action taken in favour of this plan would have been bad for business.
  7. Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, Lady Gaga and Bradley - the 'it' onscreen couple of the season, thanks to 'A Star Is Born', and honestly anyone can see the chemistry between them, especially when you see them performing together. Well, that kind of closeness would make anyone jealous, right? Especially their significant others? And, looks like that's what has happened.

While a lot of people who actually ship a non-existent romance between Bradley and Lady Gaga would love this, that's not the case. It's just people poking fun at Irina for sitting in the middle. bradley breaking his neck tryna see gaga this is too much i can't breathe pic.twitter.com/ITE7FeWqYk — r (@bluntgaga) February 25, 2019 Oops.

  8. The promo of the upcoming episode of Karan Johar's 'Koffee With Karan' was launched recently, and it came bearing many unexpected snippets showcasing the affinity Bachchan siblings share. The next episode of 'Koffee With Karan' will see Shweta Bachchan Nanda and Abhishek Bachchan gracing the Koffee couch, and this is going to be special for more than one reason since it will be Shweta's first time on the show! © Star World Going by the promo it seems pretty evident that the two are like any other brother-sister duo who live to nag and embarrass each other in the worst possible ways. But if there was one thing that we picked up from the short promo was that a very candid Shweta was more than willing to share inside scoop on her brother. © Star World So, in the short clip, when Karan asks Abhishek who is he more scared of between his mother Jaya Bachchan and wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, during the rapid fire round, Abhishek said that it was his mother whom he found scarier. However, Shweta was quick to point out that it was actually Aishwarya that Abhishek is more scared of. Well, that kind of reminds us of all the married guys in India who face the same uneasiness when a similar question is posed to them. Poor guys, they simply can't seem to be able to pick between two of the lesser evils. Anyhow, this led to a banter between the two, wherein Abhishek asked Shweta to be quiet since it was his rapid fire. During her turn, Shweta revealed that the one thing she tolerates about her little brother was his sense of humour. The video gives an insight into the kind of relationship Shweta and Abhishek share, and it sure seems the two are great chums in real life too.
  9. When athletes with common interests get on the same roster and play for years together, the chemistry ought to get beyond the field of play. A bromance so to speak - a little more than friendship but not too much. Well, you get the idea. Here's look at some of the biggest bromances in the world of sports: 1. Hardik Pandya & MS Dhoni Hardik Pandya has openly said it time and again that former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is his favourite Indian cricketer of all time. After recovering from a lower-back injury, Pandya spoke out about how Dhoni completely changed his life for the better. “He never changed my game,” Pandya told timesnownews.com. “Dhoni was someone who was very important to me as I was raw, I was learning… and he gave me the time to understand my role.” Dhoni, on the other hand, has not been shy to show his love for the all-rounder either. Spotted together at the wedding reception of Bollywood stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, the duo was found posing like best buddies for the paparazzi.

Sergio Aguero & Lionel Messi Starting out as two of the youngest players of the Argentina team, Messi and Aguero were destined to form a bonding over an extremely unfortunate incident. When Aguero's childhood friend and teammate Emiliano Molina passed away in a car crash, it was Messi who broke the news to him and presented himself as the shoulder for him to cry on. “They hugged and cried together for quite a while, supporting each other despite the anguish that gripped them,” journalist Daniel Fresco told goal.com. As they say, “friendships bound by sorrow, last forever.” © Reuters This, along with the fact that Lio Messi is the godfather to Aguero's son, Benjamin, makes this bromance real. 3. Rafael Nadal & Roger Federer: View this post on Instagram @rafaelnadal and @rogerfederer have confirmed they will reunite for #TeamEurope's 2019 #LaverCup campaign in Geneva. Tickets will go on sale in early February. Register at lavercup.com to receive updates. #Fedal A post shared by Laver Cup (@lavercup) on Dec 13, 2018 at 6:25am PST After years of epic matchups and probably the biggest tennis rivalry of this generation, the two legends show very few signs of slowing down. The thing about great athletes is that they don't shy away from recognising greatness when they see it, and that's exactly what happened between Federer and Nadal. While one is all about finesse and dexterity, the other is about brute force. Even with completely different profiles, the true Nadal-Federer duo could be witnessed during the 2017 Laver Cup finals when the two titans were seen on the same side of the net. “Everyone was waiting for this moment since they announced this event is going to happen. This is the time. So I think it's almost like a celebration of tennis,” Czech tennis star Tomas Berdych told The Telegraph. The fact that Nadal and Federer practised only once together, back at the World Tour Finals and yet managed to defeat the Americans, Jack Sock and Sam Querrey, tells so much about their chemistry. "We will always be rivals. But this was something very special, it was an absolute pleasure being on the court with Rafa and seeing his decision-making process,” Federer expresses to The Telegraph. 4. Lebron James & Dwyane Wade View this post on Instagram Current mood.. Until the wheels fall thee f#*k off @dwyanewade. Beyond death! P.S @willsmith @martinlawrence appreciate letting us flex this clip! A post shared by LeBron James (@kingjames) on Dec 10, 2018 at 5:36pm PST Entering the league in the same draft year, Dwyane Wade and Lebron James immediately became the poster boys for their respective teams. The bromance for the duo began when James decided to move to Miami in the search for a title. Despite the presence of Chris Bosh, people paid big bucks to see the Wade-James duo perform on a different level than everyone else present on the court. Videos of 'Wade to James alley-oops' are all over YouTube and are genuinely fun to watch. The chemistry goes well beyond the court as the two NBA stars are often spotted vacationing together with their families and continue to do a lot of social work as a team. James and Wade were also able to win back-to-back championships in Miami. Wade also moved to a Lebron-led Cleveland Cavaliers for a very brief moment.
  10. When you meet someone you really like spending time with, there's only one thing left to address-is the attraction mutual? While some are really good at telling, more often than not, most other people aren't very good with it. That's when they need to study certain signs to figure when to make the right move, if the attraction is from both the ends. (c)T Series Motion Films Mutual attraction can be seen from specific behaviours and patterns you observe when you're spending time with the other person. But there are 5 prominent signs you can't miss if the other person is attracted to you to. Here are 5 signs that will tell you if the attraction is indeed mutual or not (1) They Pay Attention To Every Detail If you're spending time with a friend, there might be things she may miss in your conversations and gestures but if you're spending time with a probable love interest and if you think the attraction is mutual, she will pay attention to every minute detail you give away. Such is the law of attraction. If you notice her noticing everything, you know how she feels. (c)Zee Films (2) There Will Be Constant Eye Contact Eye contact is a definitive sign if the person is interested in you or not. Long lasting eye contact coming from a stranger can be creepy but if there is ample eye contact with the person you like, it means they like you back. Or else they won't make eye contact just as much. (c)AA Films (3) They Will Maintain A Particular Physical Proximity Just like eye contact people who are interested in each other will not mind either of the breaching their space with physical contact every now and then. It's them subconsciously establishing a level of comfort between the two. You will notice they'll always want to walk close by or sit next to you, wherever you're sitting. (c)Fox Star Studios (4) There Is A Lot Of Suggestive Teasing People who share mutual attraction have a unique way to communicate with each other and sometimes only they can get inside jokes, body language and some amount of teasing here and there. When two people are attracted to one another, they find comfort in teasing each other and poking fun in order to let the awkwardness go. It's a given! (c)Eros International (5) The Obvious: Your Presence Makes Them Smile People obviously look forward to the company of people they really like and a smile is the most obvious sign to determine that! So, if you're around someone you really like and both of you are smiling at each other like there's a hanger stuck in your mouth, then the attraction is mutual for sure! (c)AA Films So, if you see, mutual attraction can be figured out by specific behaviours, gestures, body language and said words. It's no rocket science to know for sure if the other person likes you back. You just need to pay close attention to know for sure, is all.
  11. I have recently seen the terms food allergies and intolerance used interchangeably a lot when they actually are two different things. Not only are these two different things, but there are a lot of myths thrown around about them as well. The most stupid myth that I have come across numerous times is that an allergy can be created if you eat the same food again and again. Another one doing rounds is that you can cure an allergy by not eating the food that you are allergic to for 6 weeks. While in reality, if someone has a true allergy to a food, they can't ever eat that food again. © Thinkstock Images A food allergy is not a joke and people have died because of it. Compare this to someone who has lactose intolerance, drinks a glass of milk, gets gas and thinks he is allergic to milk. Allergies and intolerances are not the same thing but people confuse them all the time. Add to this the fact that food intolerances are reported almost ten times their actual rate of occurrence. Most times, when people do not feel good after eating a certain food, they assume that they are intolerant to that food. What Are Food Allergies and Intolerances Food Intolerances Generally occurs when a person's gut lacks appropriate digestive enzymes. Symptoms are repetitive gas, bloating or diarrhea. Intolerance can only cause some gastric discomfort to an individual but it poses no real danger to a person's life. Food Allergy This generates an immune reaction in the body. The consequences of a food allergy are much more severe and can cause respiratory, stomach, skin cardiovascular symptoms and anaphylactic shock. Allergies have been the cause of a few deaths in extreme cases. What Causes Food Allergy Food allergy is caused when small amount of protein enters your bloodstream. This usually happens during childhood when the gut lining is not fully developed. Some allergens can also enter the body through the respiratory system. Most of the known food allergies are caused by protein foods with milk, egg, peanuts, tree nuts, some fish and shellfish being the culprits in most cases. Gluten is another major contributor of allergy and intolerance for most people who suffer from these ailments. Gluten is a type of protein found in grains such as wheat, barley and rye. © Thinkstock Images Tests There are tests available to determine whether you are suffering from a food allergy or intolerance. From a practical standpoint, if eating certain foods causes you the problems listed above, you should stop eating them, simple. If you are suffering from a true food allergy, there is no treatment for it and avoiding the food that triggers the allergy is the best solution. Around 3-4% of the adult population is thought to be suffering from food allergies. So, if you are unsure if you have an allergy or you are intolerant to a food/food group, go get a test done rather than playing the guessing game.

  12. After innumerable delays and testing our patience for months, the teaser of '2.0' finally dropped today and so did our jaws when we saw how epic the video is. When you spend as much as Rs. 545 crore (approx) on VFX and CGI crew, with over 3000 technicians from across the world investing their skills in the movie, you can expect nothing but the best and this 1 minute 30 seconds video proves the same. © lyca productions The teaser begins with birds flying around a body hanging from an electricity tower. Before we could register what's happening, people's phones begin disappearing mysteriously and we see a glimpse of Akshay Kumar, who plays the role of a scientist named Dr. Richard, the man behind this destruction and chaos. Honestly, we don't know what Akshay will do with so many smartphones, but we hope he gets our Aadhar linked though or pay the phone bills maybe. © lyca productions Akshay then wreaks havoc in the city by transforming into a giant monster bird and if there's anyone who can stop him, it's Chitti. Is it just me or this 'bird chasing people' scene reminds you of 'Jurassic Park' as well? To fight this evil bird, Chitti is summoned by his creator Dr. Vaseegaran. Rajinikanth is introduced as Dr. Vaseegaran and as the robot Chitti who will have a face-off with Dr. Richard. Here's our takeaway from the teaser - just release the movie already because this kickass video has made our wait harder than before. Directed by S. Shankar, the movie is slated to release on November 29 and also stars Amy Jackson, Adil Hussain and Sudhanshu Pandey.
