  1. The moment I said I was going to attend an eSport event in India, a few of my friends burst out in laughter. They simply couldn't resonate with the idea of sitting in a large room staring at a big screen, watching a bunch of players, well, play a game. If you put some thought into it, then you may even start to think that they have a point. Unlike the appeal of the live experience of a traditional sport, where you can actually see professional players perform in front you, in eSports you're just watching a some players sit like statues and become a part of the computer they're playing on. And on top of that, you literally have to watch one of the big screens that are fitted in front of you to see what the players are doing. It's the exact same content you could consume from the comfort of your couch at home on platforms like Twitch. Then why do people pay big bucks to attend something which they can watch for free without breaking a sweat? © Adela Sznajder/ ESL Well, that's exactly what I was itching to find out. So, I attended one of the biggest eSports event in India last week and I am happy to report that I have a lot to share. And, I mean, a LOT! SPOILER ALERT!! If you're a passionate gamer, then let me tell you that's it's worth every penny you spend. But if you're one, then I am guessing you probably already know that, right? Last week, I attended one of the biggest Dota 2 tournaments in the world that's hosted by ESL One. It was the first time I had attended an eSports event ever, and I was filled with mixed emotions. So here I am, pouring my thoughts away to give you an idea of what it's like being a part of an event like this and what goes into putting up such a show. The Arena - Theatrical fanfare! © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer The moment I stepped into the arena, I felt as if I walked into a virtual world. A world, which I had only seen through my computer screen. The stage was lit in red and blue lights, and it was surrounded by big screens, so the entire arena could watch what the players are doing. I entered the arena right before the action, so all I could hear was narratives from commentators coupled with a background sound to build the hype. Together with the lights, commentary, and some base-heavy thumps, the arena felt nothing short of a concert or a pro sporting event like, say, a boxing match. There was some serious energy in there. The arena was also draped with advertising slogans and hoardings of brands like Intel, Vodafone, DHL, and more. And as you can see, there's also a Mercedes standing right smack in the middle, which belongs to the player who's deemed the most valuable throughout the tournament. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer After I found a comfortable seat to settle, the players of the two teams that were about to battle it out in a do-or-die match were introduced. It was 'compLexity Gaming' vs 'The Pango'. The introduction of the roster, mind you, was an enjoyable sight of its own, with players entering the arena from behind us. I could hear the commentator introducing the players with their game-tags instead of their names. Interesting, indeed! “Welcome Naive-, Iceberg, Ghostik, XSvamp1Re, CemaTheSlayer from team Pango; the roster that'll be going against complexity Gaming”, he said. The crowd started cheering and hooting as the players walked through the center towards the stage, waving hands and throwing high-fives. The turn out wasn't overwhelming, but it was enough to fill the room with excitement. © Adela Sznajder/ ESL The players were allowed to walk in on the stage with their own set of peripherals that they are comfortable with, as long as they go through the referee who makes sure that they are not bringing in any exploits to gain advantage in the game. The crowd started settling in for the action, as the players were setting up their rigs and loading the game. I could hear a lot of distant chatter about what the people around me thought the game was going to be like. Each of them were making their own predictions. Honestly, I was quite surprised to see the sheer amount of knowledge some of these people had, and also their involvement in the game. I remember talking to a 'Pango' fan next to me, who started narrating me what the roster should be doing in that particular match to win. © Adela Sznajder/ ESL As the match started, the Dota 2 fans around me started showing their passion for the sport. It's one thing to sit home and watch the players play their game, and a completely different thing to sit among the people who know the game so well that they literally gushed out of their seats in excitement after watching their favorite player pull a solid victory move. It's a great feeling that you'd get only by experiencing the event firsthand live in front of you. I couldn't sit through the entire 'Best of 3' game, since I had I rush for the backstage tour where the real magic happens. But here are some really cool pictures from the event which you probably won't find anywhere else - A Geeky Gathering Backstage The ESL One team was kind enough to take me and a bunch of other journalists for a backstage tour of the event, to show us how their teams were running the show behind the scene. Unfortunately, we weren't allowed to take any pictures or record video while we were backstage for some obvious reasons, so I suggest you put on your imagination hat and start grasping as much as possible. From massive computer rigs to human-sized machines controlling the lighting system, the backstage is where's it's at. “All the computers that you're going to see here, and on stage are running on the most powerful tech that we can get our hands on”, said Seth Bull, the partner manager at ESL who's taking care of all the backend operation during the event. © Adela Sznajder/ ESL For the record, all the computing power that was necessary to run the operations at ESL One was provided by Intel. “Why we love working with Intel is because they provide us with some of the best and reliable tech we can get our hands on”, added Seth. Seth took through various areas of the backstage like 'Player Lounge', which, as the name suggests is a place where players can hangout after a match. We also saw 'Team Rooms', which is essentially room in which the players gather right before and after a match to discuss or even practice a game or two. As we were rushing through the huge backstage area, I couldn't help but notice the piles of empty monitor boxes that were lying around. Almost all the monitors used at ESL One (or at least the ones I could see) were ASUS monitors. Some of them were the ASUS ROG Swift PG258Q (FHD) while others were the ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ (4K) units. From the monitors on-stage to the monitors used backstage by the operations team, ASUS is what I could see. © Adela Sznajder/ ESL The TV Production room was where the real work was being done. There were close to a hundred people working together to make sure that the steam was up and running at all time without any issues whatsoever. Seth made it a point to tell us that the level of production work that was going down inside that room was almost equivalent to what you'd see on high-profile events such a 'World Championship' games, etc. During our tour, the entire production unit was closely monitoring the systems as one of the most anticipated games of the season between “Mineski” and “Natus Vincere” a.k.a “Na'Vi” was underway. We could hear the crowd going crazy behind us as the players were walking on to the stage. Anti-Cheat Measures & Other Exploits “ESL's main team in Cologne, Germany is the one that's monitoring all our game data and keeping an eye out for any sort of anomalies“, said Seth, when we asked him if there were any anti-cheat measures in place. We were also told that ESL works with a lot of companies that provides anti-cheat software for games like Dota 2 and Counter Strike. Again, thanks to Intel, the computers both on and off stage have 'Hot Swap Drive Bay' so that each player has a copy of game ready at all times with all the optimum playable settings. Not only does it helps the team save some time, but it also means that no one can access the game files without authorization and tamper the files in any possible way. Also, there was no internet connection for the computers on-stage, an they all were connected to a LAN, ensuring that there's nothing getting into their systems. Intel's booth Was Fun Too Intel, in case you don't know, is one of the main backers of ESL One eSports event, and the company had set up a huge booth at the event venue. Intel's booth was honestly one of the coolest parts of the event as they had a lot going in there. There were a ton of gaming laptops and custom gaming rigs in the booth, and all of them were open for all visitors to check out. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer I couldn't get good pictures of some of the awesome gaming rigs in the booth mainly because of how packed it was, but I did manage to check out Acer Predator Thronos. Yes, it was the first time checking it out and I am glad that I stopped by. The Predator Thronos, Alienware's Area M51 were clearly some of the coolest products on showcase. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer I also had a chance to sit and talk with Frank Soqui, VP & General Manager, Gaming at Intel. Lee Machen, General Manager, Gaming Sales at Intel and Prakash Mallya, VP and Managing Director, Sales and Marketing Group, Intel India were also present for interaction. I had a great time chatting with them, discussing gaming, hardware, and more. The Final Say Setting up a huge stage like the one at ESL, and putting up such a massive show without running into any technical difficult is not easy feat. Of course, ESL is working with top brands in the industry like Intel to ensure smooth functioning, but handling logistics worth over $2 million is something that's worth appreciating. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer The event, in my opinion, was as much a festival as it was a tournament. Could I have watched the entire event from the comfort of my home? Yes, absolutely! However, I wouldn't have heard the loud cheering or the crowd in real time or I wouldn't have witnessed the enthusiastic gamers literally jump up from their seats to show their excitement. Granted, I haven't experienced some of the bigger sporting events such as the Wimbledon or the Super Bowl yet, but experiencing the ESL One Dota 2 eSports competition with hundreds of strangers will undoubtedly go down as one of the geekiest gigs I've ever been a part of. © Adela Sznajder/ ESL Oh BTW, 'Keen Gaming' beat 'Mineski' to win ESL One Mumbai.
  2. The young guns of the current Ajax squad takes us back to the good old days of the 1990s when they were counted as one of the most dangerous clubs in the whole of Europe and by defeating big dogs like Real Madrid and Juventus, Ajax has surely made their intentions for the European title extremely clear. This epic run of the Dutch team started from the very first match of this UEFA Champions League season, where they defeated AEK Athens FC 3-0. Continuing their winning form, they went on to play some mind-boggling matches to reach into the semi-finals this year. Starting with: Ajax Vs Bayern Munich © AP For a young team like Ajax, scoring a draw against the mighty Bayern Munich and that too in the Allianz Arena was in itself a very big achievement. Later in the group stage, when they met the Germans again, they went on to give the home crowd a courageous six-goal draw equipped with an added time equalising goal by Nicolas Tagliafico. Earlier, these draws were considered as 'flukes' for the newbies but with time, they showed everyone what their true character is built of. With players such as Frankie De Jong and Dusan Tadic in the team, they did make a statement that they belong amongst the best clubs in the world. Ajax Vs Real Madrid © Reuters Surpassing their group stage while being undefeated, Ajax proudly marched into the Round of 16 where they faced their first drums against Real Madrid, who handed them their first loss at home this season. As dangerous as a wounded lion, the young Dutch team stunned Santiago Bernabeu when they thrashed the defending champions 4-1 in the second leg, entering the quarter-finals with a comfortable 5-3 win on aggregate. The rain of goals by Hakim Ziyech, David Neres, Lasse Schone and Tadic, made Real's defence seem invisible. With their scintillating win over Real, the world started noticing the immense talent in the youngsters who can be a tough competition for the rest of the teams in the 2018-19 season of Champions League. Ajax Vs Juventus © AP When the draw for the quarter-finals came out, everyone thought that reaching the semi-finals would be a cake-walk for a team like Juventus, but Ajax, on the other hand, had different plans. They believed that they could win if they continue playing the type of football they have been playing off lately. Soon enough, they registered a draw in the first leg and a week later, they displayed another awe-spiring play to defeat the ferocious Juventus by 2-1, in their home itself. A well-placed goal by Donny Van De Beek and later the winning header by Matthijs De Ligt helped them cross the line. Now, entering the semi-finals after 22 long years, Ajax will have their hands on the deck when they take on either Tottenham Hotspurs or Manchester City next, to go a step ahead in their expedition to win the trophy for the first time in two decades.
  3. In case you missed the news, Disney announced its streaming service in the US last week called Disney+. It'll have content from Disney Studios, Pixar, Lucasfilm, Marvel Studios, National Geographic, to name a few. Yes, that includes all the Marvel superhero and Star Wars movies. As expected, Disney+ is not coming to India, however, Disney will route all the original content created for Disney+ along with its movie library to Indian audiences through Hotstar. That's right, Hotstar in India will host all the Disney+ content, and it's also planning to localize Disney+ movies and shows by dubbing, or by adding subtitles in Indian languages, including Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. © Disney Disney's plan to route the Disney+ content instead of launching a separate streaming service does seem like the logical thing to do. Hotstar, a streaming service owned by Star India, is a part of Walt Disney Group after all. Also, Hotstar has over 300 million active users in India, so yes, Hotstar clearly has a wide reach. It's also worth pointing out that Hotstar already hosts content from other services like ESPN and Hulu. That said, India will now be the only market in the world where content from services such as Hulu, ESPN, and Disney+ will live under the same name. © Marvel Lastly, coming to the pricing, Star India is planning to continue with its current subscription plans. While, globally, Disney+ will be priced at $7, Hotstar plans to continue with its current subscription plans i.e. Rs. 299 per month and Rs. 999 per year.
  4. Finally, the wait for 'Game of Thrones' season 8 premiere is over and most of us have already witnessed what goes on ahead in the series. If you haven't seen the episode yet (and I wonder why), then let me warn you this article contains heavy spoilers and you may want to consider reading it. The first episode of season 8 has everything elemental. From Jon Snow's return home, with the queen by his side, to infamous dragon rides across Winterfell, everything was placed in a manner that was in accordance from one revelation to another. The revelations made may have been small in gravity for now, but they were very impactful to further build the story and the characters. © HBO The most obvious element of episode 1 were the string of dysfunctional family reunions that took place, once Jon entered Winterfell with his troop. Some were very overwhelming (like imagine seeing your brother after seven years), while some were just oddly strange. Here's a list of the most looked-forward to reunions in season 8, episode 1 of 'Game of Thrones'. (1) Jon Snow & Arya Stark © HBO This was one of the most overwhelming parts of the episode, at least for me. When Jon was standing in front of the Weirwood tree, Arya sneaked up from behind and gave him a hug. It hits you the most when you realise the last time the two saw each other. It was before Jon left for the wall and handed Arya her sword, Needle. This time around when he noticed Needle on her, he asked her if she's ever used it and she said 'once or twice'. Well, it's only time till Jon finds out how many times Arya has actually used Needle. (2) Jon Snow & Bran Stark © HBO Jon and Bran last met before Jon left for the wall and at the time Bran was on bed rest, recovering from his fatal fall. Jon wasn't allowed to spend sufficient time with him before leaving as his mother, Catelyn Stark didn't allow Jon the time. So you can only imagine the emotion that went into this reunion! When Jon saw Bran, he went straight for his forehead to kiss it but realised the reunion was stunted considering Bran is now the Three-Eyed-Raven. Even so, we could see Bran was happy to see Jon and also shared his fair warning about the White-Walkers marching to Winterfell. (3) Arya Stark & Gendry © HBO The last time the two were seen together in season 3 were when they joined the 'Brotherhood', before Gendry was taken by Melisandre to Stannis Baratheon. But this reunion was playful and flirtatious and both seemed rather content and happy to find each other alive. Arya also asked Gendry to make a weapon for her and I think it's the most romantic thing an assassin can ask her crush to make, especially if he happens to be a blacksmith. We're not sure yet what the weapon entails but we do know it has two pointy-ends, according to the design Arya handed over to Gendry. According to GoT's weapon master, Tommy Dunne, there's one creation in season 8, which is an absolute showstopper and I wonder if it's the weapon Gendry makes for Arya. (4) Arya Stark & Sandor Clegane aka The Hound © HBO Arya and The Hound have had a rather love-hate relationship but by the looks of it, The Hound is glad to see Arya alive and that's what he tells her too- "You're a cold hard bitch, aren't you? Guess, that's why you're still alive". The last time the two were seen together was in season 4, when a duel between The Hound and Brienne of Tarth left the Hound completely wounded. Arya escaped his companionship soon after, leaving him to die. (5) Jon Snow & Samwell Tarly © HBO With great difficulties, after escaping the Citadel, Samwell, Gilly and Little Sam come to Winterfell to fight for Snow. Sam learns about the death of his father and his brother by the hands of the queen and disappointed and dejected, he runs in to Jon, who he last saw at the Night's Watch. Their reunion is the most pivotal part of the show, as Sam reveals Jon's true identity, that he's not Ned Stark's son and neither is he a bastard. He is in fact Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen's legitimate child and the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. This scene surely gave us goosebumps! (6) Sansa Stark & Tyrion Lannister © HBO This is one of the most rewarding reunions in the episode as it was bound to happen and Tyrion had to see how Sansa has actually evolved. And he does notice that and states "I underestimated you". The two were last seen in season 4, at the memorable wedding of Joffrey with Margaery Tyrell, after which Sansa fled with Littelfinger. Their conversation is short-lived in this episode but quite impactful. It tells us Sansa has truly evolved and that she knows Cersei better than anyone else. Even her own brother. That's because while Tyrion is convinced Cersei is on their side and that the Lannister army will march to Winterfell, Sansa is well aware of her schemes and knows for certain Cersei won't do such a thing as she has her own motives and she tells Tyrion the same. (7) Yara Greyjoy & Theon Grejoy © HBO Their reunion wasn't an elaborate deal but it was surely something to look forward to. When Theon arrives to rescue Yara from Euron Greyjoy's clutches, she's relieved to see him alive but also gives him a mighty head-butt (because he abandoned her in the past), before giving him her hand to stand up again. The two flee and head towards the Iron Islands, a definite place where she can stand guard for the folks in the North, as the White-Walkers supposedly can never reach the Iron Islands. She figures Theon wants to go back to Winterfell and assist Snow in the war and she tells him to do just that. (8) Jaime Lannister & Bran Stark © HBO Leaving the best for the last, this one reunion was the most superimposing and anticipated one. The two obviously met in season one, where Bran, a little boy climbed one of the towers of Winterfell to find Jaime & Cersei in a, well, a compromising position. Fear of their relationship being revealed to the rest of the family, Jaime pushed Bran down the tower, making him loose both his legs. I am not sure what the two will even talk about, or if they ever will, but I have a feeling Bran will tell Jaime he isn't that little boy anymore and that he's the Three-Eyed-Raven and that it probably doesn't matter, hopefully forgiving Jaime?! Well, Jaime's character has been the most evolving one out of the lot, so maybe he should be forgiven. So, there you go! 8 most endearing, overwhelming yet strange reunions in the first episode of the final season. We're awaiting some more reunions by the second episode, namely Jon and the Night King. But we're not going to go more in to that. For now, let's just take a week or less to digest this episode first!
  5. The final season of 'Game Of Thrones' is coming sooner than we thought after a very tedious and a long wait. While we sure will miss the action and the nail-biting anticipation we have been experiencing through the years, let's look back at the biggest betrayals we witnessed during the course of these seven seasons, which basically just left us shook: 1. The Red Wedding- Horrific, aesthetically very disturbing and the fact that it was a wedding that turned gory left us gasping for breath. 2. Eddard Stark- Ironically enough, the season began with the Stark patriarch beheading someone and later getting the same fate for himself. It was heartbreaking to see the helpless father being beheaded by the family he thought was his ally. 3. Baelish & Sansa- While Karma came calling for Baelish correctly by the hands of Sansa herself, it was pretty sad when he promises to shield the lost girl and take her home safely but has his own ulterior motives behind the help. 4. Jon Snow And Night Watch- When Olly pushed Jon to his fate, the viewers felt the blow to their heart as well. The finale of season 5 broke hearts of all GOT lovers. 5. Stannis & Shireen – This betrayal was a low blow, even by GOT standards, as it was darker than we could actually think. Stannis agrees to oblige Mellisandre's wish for a sacrifice and his selfishness for his rule overcomes his love for his own daughter. Very hard to witness this one. 6. Theon & The Starks – When Balon is successful in pitting Theon against Robb, there is no looking back for this traitor. His insecurity takes over the better side of him and you kind of want to just punch him in the face at times. 7. Shae & Tyrion Lannister- The man who claims to know things and just drink, never saw the betrayal coming from the one woman he loved the most in the world. Shae's ending was kind of fitting, wasn't it? 8. Cersei & The High Sparrow- The High Sparrow lures her into trusting her, but the relationship leads to her own arrest. However, you never mess with this queen. The fate which followed her enemies at High Septon was a visual treat for a Cersei but a complete shocker for us.
  6. It's been two years since the last season of 'Game Of Thrones' premiered. April 14 is right here, and people have been calling it the beginning of the end. We can't wait to find out the fate of our beloved characters. From crazy fan theories to insane speculations, various threads on Quora and Reddit have tried to dissect the ending. But no one can confirm things. The creators of GOT have been tight-lipped about the plot surrounding season 8. However, we do know that cliffhangers from season 7 will be answered in the coming days and the long-awaited war between the white walkers and the living will finally happen. This also means we will be seeing more reunions in season 8 (Jon and Arya is one reunion that we're waiting for). Daenerys, Sansa and Arya meeting is one such face-off that is going to happen in the first episode. In a new interview with a leading publication, Emilia Clarke talks about the fact that Daenerys will meet the Stark sisters for the first time in the very first episode of the latest season. Dany, in order to rule, needs Snow and his allies to cooperate which is why she needs to get along with Sansa and Arya. © HBO "I like to think that it's like 'Meet the Parents,'" Clarke told the publication. "It's like: 'I hope they like me. This dude's wicked. It's a real good thing we got going on. He's the final piece. We're destined for greatness and world domination is a breath away.' And so I need to be like: 'Can I braid your hair, Sansa? Little Arya, come over here, let's play some cricket.' So there's that. And then, very, very quickly, it's like: 'Wait, is it just me, or do they hate me?'" You will get to witness the Stark-Targaryen face-off on 15 April, 2019.
  7. A majority of people on the planet are always in the constant mission to lose weight, however, not all get highly satisfying results. via GIPHY Talking about hurdles when it comes to weight loss, the first one is actually sticking to a diet. However, while you may stick to a diet if you have immense dedication towards your goal, you will still face the problem of hunger. When you go on a calorie deficit diet or reduce your calorie intake from your current diet, your body starts craving for more food. via GIPHY Since you were earlier consuming more food in your routine, your body becomes accustomed to it. Now when you deprive it of those food items, the hormones in your body will send signals for cravings and you will feel hungry throughout the day. Chances are that you might even give up to these cravings sooner than later. via GIPHY So in this article, I am going to tell you a few strategies that will help you to minimize these cravings so that you can stay on track for your fitness goals: 1. Eat More Protein via GIPHY Consuming more protein in your daily diet will help you to curb your hunger as your body has to spend more time to digest protein. Another important role of protein as a macronutrient is to help your body in muscle repair. via GIPHY Thus it makes more sense to include food items that are high in protein in every meal of the day. When I say protein, I mean protein food and not supplements like Whey. Whey protein is digested rapidly so it may not have the same satiety factor as natural sources of protein. Thus try to include more natural form of protein like chicken, Eggs, Tofu, Cottage cheese etc. 2. Drink More Water via GIPHY While you may think that you are hungry for food, chances are that you might actually be thirsty. This happens with the majority of people who do not consume enough water throughout the day. via GIPHY You need to make a conscious effort to consume enough water so that you are not confusing thirst with hunger. Try this, when you feel hungry just after a few minutes of consuming a meal, have water. Trust me, you will realize that you weren't actually hungry. Also, drinking sips of water every now and then help a lot in regulating your hunger. 3. Consume Calorie Sparse Foods via GIPHY Those quick snack bites like biscuits and namkeens may satisfy your hunger immediately but it won't last for too long. Similarly, sugary drinks and colas add up to your calorie intake but do not provide ample satiety factor to keep hunger at bay. Whenever you consume any of these food items you will start feeling hungry immediately after some time. Thus, they are a poor choice to satisfy your hunger. via GIPHY Instead, you should always choose fibre dense food like brown rice, Oatmeal etc which have enough fibre to make you feel less hungry over time. High volume foods that have enough fibre will take time to digest and thus give you more satiety factor.

  8. Respawn's 'Apex Legends' has been hitting some impressive gaming milestone since it's launch. The game recently hit 50 million players worldwide, and now it's been brought to light that the title has become the biggest free-to-play launch of all time. © Respawn According to a report by market research firm Superdata, 'Apex Legends' is not just a big hit for EA, it's also the became biggest free-to-play title launch of all time by pulling in a whopping $92 million in revenue in its launch month i.e. February across all platforms. Not just that, 'Apex Legends' also became one of the top ten grossing games in February. Reportedly, most of the money which 'Apex Legends' made was on consoles, not PC. The game ranked fourth in console revenue and sixth in PC among all titles. Here, take a look: © Superdata 'Fortnite', as you can see, still topped 'Apex Legends' on both the platforms by generating more than $300 million in a single month. Yes, 'Apex Legends' may not have killed 'Fortnite' in terms of the revenue, but there's no denying that 'Apex Legends' is just as popular as 'Fortnite', if not more. I mean, I personally play 'Apex Legends' a lot more than 'Fortnite' nowadays, and I know I am not alone. 'Apex Legends', in case you don't know, is a free-to-play title that's available on EA's Origin. The game has revenue streams via its virtual coin currency, which allows players to purchase Apex Packs and splurge on cosmetic upgrades. In fact, even some legends like Mirage, Caustic and the new Octane are behind a paywall for those who want to add them quickly instead of earning points to acquire them.
  9. At a time when faith and religion are gaining prominence over all the other things that make us an active member of the society and each other's lives, we constantly seek out positive instances to help us get to a positive state of mind. One that would guide us to a more cheerful, peaceful and inclusive future, where every individual can live without a religious tag making the slightest difference to our lives. And talking of such positive instances, we have these four young men who are not only inspiring hope, but are also successfully leading the way to show us what a society with thriving communal harmony could look like. © Quora Featured in Humans of Bombay earlier today, one of the four buddies in the picture was quoted saying something so simple yet impactful that we often overlook in our frenzy to get on with our lives on a day to day basis. Something that is as simple as God is one, and we are all His children. Read what the young man has to say, that's inspiring people to come forward and share their personal stories about the wonderful people in there who don't share the same faith, and yet a world of a difference to their life anyway. View this post on Instagram “The four of us are really good friends and have come here for the evening Namaz. He's a Hindu, but he still comes with us everyday, after work, so that we can spend some time together. We pray for him and he prays for us – he even knows certain parts of the Quran by heart, and we're learning the Gayatri Mantra from him! There's just one person up there, and He listens to all, no matter where you're from. If the whole world understands that, then wouldn't it just be heaven on earth?” A post shared by Humans of Bombay (@officialhumansofbombay) on Mar 13, 2019 at 10:27pm PDT “The four of us are really good friends and have come here for the evening Namaz.

  10. Christopher Henry Gayle, a name which has already been engraved in the history of cricket as one of the most powerful hitters the game has ever seen. On one hand, where hitting a six is a very common sight in cricket, many believe that a six by Chris Gayle should at least be given a run count of eight, instead of just six. The power with which this man hits a ball is out of this world. There have been uncountable instances where a match has been stopped just because the ball was smacked outside the stadium by the 'Gayle-force'. Rumours surrounding Gayle's retirement were proven correct yesterday, as the Indies star announced his retirement from the ODI format post the ICC World Cup 2019. So, just before we get to see the final Gayle-storm in action, let's have a look at some of his finest innings witnessed by the world: 1. Gayle's Maiden Century (Kenya) © Reuters Soon after making an impact in Test cricket, Gayle slammed his maiden ODI century against Kenya on their home soil, in Nairobi. Despite being a little late to the party, he made his mark by touching the score of 152 in his first ever ODI ton. This humongous score consisted of 17 fours and a single six. With time, we saw the proportion of his runs shifting towards the big hits instead of fours and singles. 2. Gayle-Storm In Ahmedabad (India) © Reuters The year 2001, was just the beginning of the many earthquakes by the big man. A year after his thundering performance in Kenya, he started bashing any team which came in his way. He went on to score 3 consecutive tons against the Indians when the Windies toured India in 2002. Out of all those tons, the best one came in Ahmedabad where he shattered the bowling line up of India, consisting of Harbhajan Singh, Ashish Nehra and Ajit Agarkar. Though the West Indies couldn't win that match, the splendid performance by the Chris Gayle helped them seal the series by 4-3 in their favour. 3. Gayle's Show In Johannesburg (South Africa) © Reuters Yet another showdown by the big guy came in 2004 against South Africa in Johannesburg, where he managed to put up the same score as of his first ODI ton, 152. But this time, there was an upgrade as he was unbeaten on that score. But just like before, his ton couldn't help the Indies line-up win the match. In response, the 139 by Jacque Kallis made it easier for South Africa to surpass the total of 304 with two balls still to go. 4. Gayle's Display Against The Kiwis © Reuters Another scorching century against New Zealand in 2012, took Gayle to his 20th One Day International tons. Here, being at home, he posted 125 runs of his own in the total of 315, hitting nine sixes and eight boundaries. After a long time, his century proved to be of worth to his team, as the West Indies resulted in winning the match by 55 runs. 5. Gayle-Storm In The World Cup 2015 (Australia-New Zealand) © Reuters In a World Cup match against Zimbabwe, it seemed like Christopher Henry Gayle held a placard, a cliche one but very true: 'Form is temporary, class is permanent.' The six-hitting machine manufactured in Jamaica went into overdrive, answering the critics who questioned its efficacy - in record-breaking style. Blasting a herculean score of 215 in mere 179 balls, Gayle took the team total up to 372 in 50 overs. His 215, was peppered with a whopping 16 sixes and 10 boundaries. With these being one of the best performances by the Caribbean 'Big-Dog', let's hope he ends his ODI career on a high by delivering yet another blistering knock in the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019.
  11. 2018 ended on a horrible note for the former Indian cricketer Jacob Martin, who battled against time in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in critical condition following a road accident on 28th December and was put on a ventilator as his family felt severely short of money to continue with the expensive treatment. At that time, the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) sanctioned an aide worth Rs 5 Lakh out of the Benevolent Fund whilst former skipper Sourav Ganguly also showed his support. However, the greatest gesture was shown by cricketer Krunal Pandya who gave a blank cheque to Sanjay Patel, the former secretary of the BCCI and the Baroda Cricket Association while reportedly saying, “Sir, please fill up whatever is needed, but nothing less than Rs 1 lakh". With the good wishes of the fans of the cricketer and those of Indian cricket, Martin was successfully discharged from the ICU after spending almost a month under 'critical' status. Having said that, a pair of ruptured lungs and a failing liver takes a lot of care and treatment to get over. When the injuries are so grave, the rate at which the cash flows can reduce the wealthiest of families to mediocrity. In such testing times, former Indian opener KL Rahul emerged as the knight in the shining armour who reportedly made the biggest individual donation to the Martin family. Jacob's wife while having confirmed receiving the funds from the batsman refused to reveal the exact amount on the request of Rahul himself but Mumbai Mirror confirms that Rahul's hefty donation was the greatest made by anyone. “A big thanks to Rahul and everyone who has helped,” an emotional Jacob Martin expressed to the newspaper as the cricketers of the past and the present have come together to stand by the ailing athlete. Ever since India's Test series against Australia, KL Rahul has found himself to be off in his form before getting suspended for being a part of a controversial episode of a chat show alongside teammate and best-buddy Hardik Pandya. It can be excruciatingly difficult for an athlete to life through a stint of bad form with the public constantly hating on them for their deeds beyond the field and for Rahul to show up for a cause so noble right now, says a million things about how good the cricketer is at heart.
  12. After a clinical performance in the ODI Series against New Zealand recently, the Indian team stumbled to a heavy defeat in the first T20 against the Kiwis. A Kohli-less Indian side managed to score just 139 runs in response to New Zealand's 219 and eventually lost the match by 80 runs, registering their biggest defeat in T20I in terms of margin of loss. The Men in Blue came into the match with a changed lineup from the ODI series, playing all three wicket-keepers, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, and MS Dhoni together. Both the Pandya brothers were also included in the squad, but the biggest shocker was the choice of plaVijayvIjay Shankar at one-down. Lower down the order, the in-form duo of Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav was overlooked as well. © Twitter@blackcaps Rohit Sharma's choice of opting to field first clearly didn't pan out well for the visitors. The bowlers were the first ones to confront their worst nightmare by conceding 219 runs. Hardik Pandya was taken for 51 in his quota of four overs, a personal record. It was then the batsmen who were bundled out well short. Dhoni high-scored with 39, but it was far from enough. All in all, Team India was completed dominated by the hosts in all departments, who were the better team on the day by a big margin. After the disappointing result, Indian fans, as expected, went all out on Twitter to express their dismay: #NZvInd Women Indian team all out in 19.1 overs, lost by 23 runs Men Indian team all out in 19.2 overs, lost by 81 runs Ravi Shastri: Hamare chore choriyo se km hai ke? — DR.

  13. Shah Rukh Khan has charmed his audience as the perfect prince charming for the longest time. He was once the biggest heart-throb in the Hindi film industry, and women still crush on the man even after all this time, and regardless of the fact that SRK hasn't delivered a blockbuster in a long time. However, with the news that the actor might be playing the lead in the Rakesh Sharma biopic 'Saare Jahan Se Achha', a lot of people came to pin their hopes on the film to bring back the SRK of the glorious days of 'Swades'. However, rumours are rife that SRK might have pulled out of the film to star in the third instalment of Farhan Akhtar's directorial series 'Don 3'. © Yash raj Films Even though no official announcement has been made either confirming or denying the speculations, reports suggest that King Khan made the switch owing to the box office disaster of his experimental project 'Zero'. Shah Rukh's latest movie terribly bombed at the theatres and failed to impress his fans and critics alike, who simply wrote the film off. This is said to have made the SRK more cautious about his future projects and apparently, after all these years of taking risks, he has been reconsidering playing unconventional roles of late. © Red Chillies Entertainment So when asked about his biggest fear, SRK came clear with his concern. He told Deccan Chronicle that, “I hope the day never comes when I am so tired that I tell myself that it is ok to do just a regular film which will get made in 40 days, release soon, become a box office hit and I can buy myself a new car and be happy. That thought scares me.” Well, this statement which clearly spells out that SRK is afraid of getting so demotivated about work or even life in general, that he ends up settling for less or mundane stuff just for the heck of it, sounds like a thought a lot of us have had at some point. © YRF Come to think about it, be it school, college or even work, there must have been a number of such moments in our lives when we were going through a real low or facing a major setback/disappointment which could be termed as our personal 'Zero' moments of life. And isn't it so easy to settle for less and just try to keep going with safe options because “well, at least I didn't stop” or “this a fool-proof formula, even though I have tried it a 100 other times”? © Red Chillies Entertainment We know, we have all been there and done that at some point in time, but it's good to know that a big star like SRK is also acknowledging to facing such situations in his life, and resolving to come out of it fighting. Instead of taking the easy way out. There's a lesson for us right there. Getting comfortable with our situation is easy, and easier still when you want to avoid failure. But that would only leave us feeling discontented and unhappy. So let's take those risks regardless of whether we make it or lose.
  14. When you have a physique like Tiger Shroff, you don't really need to put a lot of thought about what to wear. However, Tiger clearly doesn't believe in that and pulls off #OOTDs that are definitely Insta-worthy. He just gave us a glimpse of that with his latest outfit, which was deceptively simple but contained a piece that was 'statement' in the truest sense of the term. He wore a pair of bell-bottoms that were delightfully extra and reminded us of the huge bell-bottoms from the '70s. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani The super roomy pair is something you need guts of steel to carry off, simply because of the unusual (bordering on weird) silhouette they give rise to. © Viral Bhayani Tiger was sagaciously fashionable to have worn it with a navy blue fitted T-shirt of a similar shade, because going minimal on top is the only way one can carry it off without committing a fashion blunder. © Viral Bhayani The best thing about the look is that it's not over the top, but still makes a statement that's remarkably 'high-fashion'. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Maybe it's time to bring back the '70s to the mainstream fashion scene after all!
  15. If we thought 'Simmba' was the biggest hit of just Ranveer's career, we couldn't have been more wrong! Ranveer Singh starrer 'Simmba' has now crossed the box earnings of Rohit Shetty's 'Chennai Express' to take its top spot as the “highest grosser” for the director! © Pinterest According to the latest tweet by trade analyst Taran Adarsh, 'Simmba' has so far earned Rs. 227.71 crore while 'Chennai Express' had earned Rs. 227.13 crore. This makes 'Simmba' Rohit Shetty's most successful directorial venture so far. #Simmba crosses *lifetime biz* of #ChennaiExpress and emerges Rohit Shetty's highest grosser... [Week 3] Fri 2.60 cr, Sat 4.51 cr, Sun 5.30 cr, Mon 2.86 cr. Total: â¹ 227.71 cr. India biz. BLOCKBUSTER. — taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) January 15, 2019 Even though 'Simmba' received mixed reviews upon its release on 28th December last year, it soon picked up business over the week. The movie has received great reviews and has been hailed as a total “paisa vasool” movie of 2018. Not only that, but 'Simmba' also became Rohit Shetty's eighth consecutive 100-crore movie at the box office. © Red chillies Entertainment 2013 release 'Chennai Express' starring Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan was a super hit at the box office and was declared as a complete package when it came to thrilling entertainment. In 'Simmba', Ranveer Singh is seen essaying the role of a corrupt policeman called Sangram Bhalerao who undergoes a complete transformation after a life-changing incident. The film stars Sara Ali Khan as Ranveer's love interest Shagun in the film, while Sonu Sood, Ashutosh Rana, Siddhartha Jadhav also play pivotal roles in the movie.
  16. Arguably one of the biggest and most popular electronic music festivals in Asia, Sunburn, with its unique concept and star-studded guest-list, has enthralled EDM fans for the last eleven years. Thus, when the 12th edition of the music festival sprung to life in Pune this year, there was little doubt over its success in presence of the multi-cultural music devotees who congregated to surrender to their favourite artists. Hosted at the aesthetic 100-acre Oxford Valley and encircled by the beautiful valley of Lavale, the musical extravaganza ensured the EDM loyalists had inimitable and individualistic experiences, enabling them to begin their new year with zeal. With some of the biggest DJs in attendance, this year's edition had as many as four different stages - including the massive 5000-square-feet mainstage - to satiate the thirst of its attendees. The first day of the festival saw the likes of 'desi' bass king Nucleya, Israeli psy-trance perfectionist Vini Vici, Netherlands' electro wizard Don Diablo and Sweden's most prominent EDM duo Axwell & Ingrosso making full use of the LEDs, pyros and SFX at their disposal to send the fans into delirium and kickstart the three-day spectacle with a bang. © Sunburn If Day 1 left the fans reluctant to bid farewell to their music demons, the second day ensured they had more coming their way through another prominent line-up. If Sartek - India's first DJ to be signed by Hardwell's Revealed Recordings - set the ball rolling on Day 2, Bosnia's pride Salvatore Ganacci gave the crowd the time of their lives through his dramatic antics behind the decks. But, the biggest acts of the night undeniably came through Norway's rising talent Alan Walker and 'Trance King' Armin van Buuren who created unmatched intensity levels through their serene music and immersive visuals. For a festival that had the fans wanting for more on the first two days, there was no surprise to see the annual music fest carrying on the powerful momentum and leading to an extraordinary finale, ushering in the optimism of the New Year. This year's edition adequately repaid the faith of its fans - who had decided to celebrate the most important night of 2018 with Sunburn - via desi rap god DIVINE, Pakistan origin sister-duo Krewella and France's Grammy-nominated producer DJ Snake. While Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf had the fans screaming Krewella through widespread smiles, blissful dancing and their energy-thumping sounds, the headliner of the night - DJ Snake - was seen testing the sound system to its limits in what was arguably a relentless, sensory assault that lasted over an hour. On one hand, where the three-day festival - staying true to its reputation of being India's biggest music extravaganza - gave fans unforgettable memories, it also gave MensXP an opportunity to interact with some of the biggest artists on the EDM circuit and unravel their secrets at the event. Armin van Buuren © Sunburn Arguably one of the biggest names on the EDM circuit, Armin van Buuren needs to introduction to the music fests or the enthusiasts across the globe. The Dutch music maestro has been ruling the charts for two decades now. Thus, when Sunburn included the five-time winner of the DJ Mag's Top 100 DJs poll in their line-up this year, there was no surprise to see many fans circling the date and time of his performance on their calendars. But, while the 42-year-old made the Pune crowd to the beats, we grilled the Dutchman with some impromptu questions. Man Crush: "That would be my Lego Millennium Falcon." Woman Crush: "My woman crush is Sandra Bullock from the movie Birdbox." Weirdest/Funniest Dating Story: "Well, I remember, I was really in love with this girl and I ordered a bracelet with her name. And, when we went to watch a movie together, I gave her this bracelet. But, she was so surprised or scared that she immediately ran away. She was like 'Oh, he wants something from me'." A Rumour About You That's Not True: "That I made 15 million dollars in one year. And, that I have a private jet. But, I don't." Biggest Guilty Pleasure: "My Lego Millennium Falcon." Funniest Pick-up Line: "How would you like to do an extended set at my place." Favourite Indian DJ/Musician: "My favourite Indian DJ is Ritviz." Krewella © Sunburn Back in 2007, when sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf forged a partnership with Kris Trindl (who is no longer a part of the group), little did they know that Krewella would eventually reach the heights it has today. Producing a blend of electro house and dubstep with some shades of trap, Krewella has established its reputation as one of the biggest acts in the EDM scene. And, when they were roped in to bless the Pune crowd at Sunburn, there was little doubt that the American band would disappoint. Dropping one of the best sets at this year's festival, Krewella won over the attendees with mesmerising music. But, apart from what was arguably a standout performance, the sister duo spilled some secrets about their lives to us in a personal Q&A. Woman Crush: While Yasmine was quick to answer: "My woman crush is American actress Tessa Thompson", Jahan took some time before seeking her sister's help to eventually reply: "Deepika Padukone from Bajirao Mastani". Man Crush: Without wasting any time, Yasmine replied: "Her (Deepika Padukone) husband Ranveer Singh. We were just googling him and staring at his photos". Jahan, on the other hand, added: "He (Ranveer) is so talented too. He is an amazing performer and rapper. And, him and Deepika are the best couple". Weirdest/Funniest Dating Story: "I was really jet-lagged or just sleepless. We had just finished shooting the 'Alive' music video and I think I'd been up for three days straight. And, I had just one sip of beer on this date and I blacked out. This was when my date thought that I was on some kind of a drug, which I wasn't," said Jahan. When we asked Yasmine, she claimed: "I went out on a date with this guy. He was so nervous that he crashed his rental car (while I was in it) into the side of a building as he was parking". A Rumour About You That's Not True: "There was a rumour that Jahan started five years ago that I was engaged. But, I'm not engaged," Yasmine said. Answering for her sister, Yasmine claimed: "There's no rumour about her. She's rumour-less which is a great thing", Biggest Guilty Pleasure: For Yasmine, it was: "It has to be Oreos because it's really unhealthy and I shouldn't be eating them". When we asked Jahan, she claimed: "Every time we are in India, at naashta (breakfast), I sit for two or three hours, eating four-meals worth of food". Funniest Pick-up Line: "I could really help you with your career, if you let me," Yasmine replied on behalf of Jahan. "I've never had a bad pick-up line used on me so I use hers (Jahan)," Yasmine said for herself. Vini Vici © Sunburn Undeniably one of the biggest names on the psy-trance scene, Israeli duo Vini Vici have been setting music festivals ablaze ever since founding the group in 2013. Comprised of Matan Kadosh and Aviram Saharai, these Israeli demigods continue to entertain fans with infectious chants and ear-splitting basslines in their music. Such has been their success in the industry that it earned them collaborations with some of the veterans including Armin van Buuren, W&W, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Steve Aoki amongst others. But, despite their popularity, not many know them as a person or what do they like. While we missed out on Aviram (who didn't travel to Sunburn this year), MensXP did get hold of Matan to spill some secrets about him. Current Man Crush: "I don't know, maybe Johnny Depp." Current Woman Crush: "It would definitely be Gal Gadot." Weirdest/Funniest Dating Story: "I remember, this one time, I was in a club. I was really young and then I take a number of a girl. The next day, we went for a date and she looked completely different. So I just picked her up in my car and dropped her back after five minutes at the same spot." Biggest Guilty Pleasure: "There's an Israeli Pop group called 'Static & Benel Tavori' who are a rage amongst the teenagers. But, I really like their production." Funniest Pick-up Line: "God Is A DJ." Nucleya © Sunburn Often labelled as desi bass king, Udyan Sagar aka Nucleya has carved his own niche in the ever-growing electronic music scene in India. From using the dialogues of old horror movies to carefully aligning street sounds in his tracks, Udyan's ability to bridge the gap between indie and mainstream music has made him a countrywide phenomenon. The 39-year-old has been the must-have artist for music festivals across the country which probably explains why we weren't surprised to see him kill the set at Sunburn this year. For an artist who has become a household name in the country, we expected Udyan to spill secrets about his life. While he didn't speak much as we would have liked, Udyan still gave us something to remember him by. Current Man Crush: "Munna bhaiya (Divyendu Sharma) from web series Mirzapur." Current Woman Crush: "Radhika Apte from Sacred Games." Weirdest/Funniest Dating Story: "I got caught once...actually, you know what, I don't wanna talk about it." A Rumour About You That's Not True: "I don't think there are any rumours about me. I'm not so well known, no. I'm very weak at this game." Biggest Guilty Pleasure: "Pani puri, maybe." Funniest Pick-up Line: "None." Alan Walker © Sunburn For someone who had no musical background and learnt the art of producing music by watching YouTube tutorials, Alan Walker has undoubtedly come a long way to become one of the most prominent artists in the electronic music today. The Norwegian wonder kid struck a chord with electronic music enthusiasts through his track 'Fade' in 2014. But, it was 'Faded'- a remastered vocal version of 'Fade' released in 2015 - that earned him global recognition. The single received platinum certifications in over 10 countries and also topped the year-end charts in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Sweden, iTunes charts in 32 countries, as well as entering Top 10 in Spotify Global Chart. Since then, life has never been the same for the 21-year-old genius. While many have come to know his music, not many can say much about him as a person. But, not anymore. Weirdest Travel Story: "I don't think it's weird, it's more of a messed up story. It was basically like a bunch of delays and cancellations. And, rather than reaching home at (for example) 2 pm, I ended up getting there the next day." Favourite Musician: "It's gotta be Hans Zimmer." Favourite Indian Musician: "It's Lost Stories. They did a remix of my single 'Faded'. I really like how they used Indian instruments like flutes and all. I really like their style." One Thing You Always Carry With Yourself: "One thing that I just can't leave at home has got to be my cell phone." Funniest Thing A Fan Gave You: "A fan once gave a diary that had all my social media posts including Snapchat and Instagram stories. Everything was put together in that diary with handwritten captions." Biggest Guilty Pleasure: "It's undoubtedly food. I love food and my favourite dish is pizza." Have You Tried Indian Food: "I've tried Indian food a couple of times. But, I'm not a big fan of spicy food." Anish Sood © Sunburn Born and raised in Goa, Anish Sood began his innings with music at a tender age of 15 after getting some exposure from Armin van Buuren's podcast 'A State Of Trance'. Despite holding a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering, Anish decided that it was through music that he was going to make his parents proud. At a time when dance music concept was at it's nascent stage in India, Anish was one of the first few breakthrough artists to make a mark in the rising circuit. Over the last decade, he has contributed majorly to the country's electronic music scene with his distinctive sound that also saw him winning an award at the Independent Music Awards (IMA), making him the first Indian to win in the Best Electronica/Dance Single category. But, apart from his DJing genius, Anish is a regular guy and these are his secrets. Current Man Crush: "I think, it has to be Roger Federer. He's been my man crush for a while now. I look to everything he amplifies and he's just a super cool guy." Current Woman Crush: "As boring as it sounds, I just got engaged so my current woman crush (and my crush for a very long time or the rest of my life), so it is going to be my fiancée." Weirdest/Funniest Dating Story: "To be honest, I haven't done much dating in my life. I haven't been on crazy blind dates and all. But, I'd definitely not recommend an artist or a musician to take their new girlfriends to a music festival because things go out of control backstage." A Rumour About You That's Not True: "That, I'm gay. And, I'm absolutely not." Biggest Guilty Pleasure: "That's probably watching romantic comedies." Funniest Pick-up Line: "I was playing this show when two middle-aged women came up to me and gave me a note. And, usually when you're playing, you get these notes that generally have song requests and all. But, this one had a hotel's room number and key inside. I think that was pretty creepy." Sartek © Sunburn A New Delhi native, Sarthak Sardana was a studious kid who cleared major examinations to become a Chartered accountant. But, after working in reputed organisations for a while, he realised that it was producing music that he liked more than tallying the balance sheets. He traded his corporate job to don a music producer's hat and began his journey as Sartek. His efforts paid off when he became the first Indian DJ to be roped in by Hardwell's Revealed Recordings and has witnessed all his releases making a mark on the Beatport Top 100 charts. There has been no looking back for the 30-year-old as he has attracted massive support from the likes of David Guetta, Afrojack, Sander van Doorn and Bassjackers. In a bid to know him better, we grilled him on a rapid-fire round and he didn't disappoint. Current Man Crush: "I would say Benedict Cumberbatch. But, in the DJing scene, if you ask me, it has to be Armin van Buuren. This guy hasn't aged in the last 20 years." Current Woman Crush: "I'm married so it's gonna be tough for me to answer. But, I think, it'll be Elnaaz Norouzi from Sacred Games." Weirdest/Funniest Dating Story: "This one time, I was dating this girl from my school and we went to watch a movie together. We wanted to watch an English movie, but my driver bought the wrong tickets. And, we had to watch a different movie which was in bhojpuri." Biggest Guilty Pleasure: "I'd say, it's food. I'm getting fat day by day and it's tough to control." Funniest Pick-up Line: "A girl once said 'Hey, what's your name? Sartek. Oh, that's really cool. It rhymes with your real name Sarthak. That's really smart.' But, I thought it was quite stupid."
  17. 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.

  19. 2018 has been an interesting year in terms of performances. Some surprising misses, some obvious duds and some mind-blowing hits have ensured that we had a grand buffet of performances, movies and TV series. However, this list is not to wax eloquence on any generic names but the selected few talented powerhouses, who, with their stellar performances blew our minds, and ensured that no matter what, they can steal the thunder with pure talent! Here's our pick of the top 7 amazing actors who owned 2018: 1. Saif Ali Khan- No, he is not a newcomer, and no, he did not come back after a major hiatus either, but only a diamond merchant can recognise the value of a diamond, right? Well, that's exactly what happened when Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap got him on board for 'Sacred Games' and gave us Sartaj Singh. Our faith in this awesome guy is restored. 2. Vicky Kaushal- He has been here for a while and yes, his performances have always been appreciated, but 2018 made us see him in a new light altogether. From 'Sanju', to 'Lust Stories' and then finally 'Manmarziyan', this handsome dude proved that he can literally take up anything and put his heart into it to deliver it through. 3. Ayushmann Khurrana- Our very own talent pool is an all-rounder. This good-looking lad can write, act, sing and perform, all with sheer perfection. The fact that 'AndhaDhun' and 'Badhai Ho' broke box office records proves that Ayushmann can carry a 100 crore film with ease and immense talent. 4. Taapsee Pannu- This gorgeous woman gave us Rumi, a woman every guy would want to date, a woman every girl can relate with and a character which is so layered, that the simplicity of her character garbed the complex plot with poise. Taapsee is a great performer and 'Manmarziyan' was her movie completely. 5. Radhika Apte- The internet might have trolled this name and Netflix for their constant association but they forgot that her omnipresence is due to the fact that she is brilliant with whatever she does. It has been her year in terms of accolades, performances and the plethora of work that she took on her plate. 'Lust Stories', ' Andhadhun', ' Ghoul', 'Sacred Games', all different genres and all done with pure perfection. 6. Nawazuddin Siddiqui- What is 'Sacred Games' without the brilliance of this man? Gaitonde gave us the chills and made sure that we were hooked to the series, courtesy his narration and his flawless acting. 7. Kubbra Sait- Also, when we talk of 'Sacred Games', we cannot miss the spell that was cast thanks to 'Kukkoo ka jadoo'. This beautiful actress proved that any role can be marvelled with the right amount of dedication and sheer talent. Kudos to her for performing Kukkoo so effortlessly. These 7 performers which changed the way we perceive 'entertainment' in 2018.
  20. One of Bollywood's most anticipated movies of 2019 'Kalank', boasts of a loaded star-cast, besides a plot that has been most successfully kept under wraps. The film stars some of Bollywood's most popular actors such as Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt, besides many other prominent faces from the industry. © Dharma Productions While tabloids have often tried to unearth the plot of the movie, the makers have ensured that no crucial detail related to it makes its way beyond the film's set. Yet, there are a few interesting facts that have made their way into the public arena, and we've got them all for you here: 1. The plot of the movie was conceptualised by Yash Johar along with his son and producer of the film, Karan Johar almost 15 years ago! 2. Sridevi had been initially signed up to play the role of courtesan Ishmat in the film. Post her sudden demise, the role will now be portrayed by Madhuri Dixit. 3. Part of the story is set in Old Delhi, for which a special set was created in Mumbai's Film City. The set reported cost Rs. 15 crores! View this post on Instagram JASHN - 2 children with a serious man . very difficult to get our maker to be part of any picture. Wrap of another sched as now I got a big action set piece for #kalank coming up A post shared by Varun Dhawan (@varundvn) on Nov 3, 2018 at 1:55am PDT 4. The filmmakers reportedly signed up 500 backup dancers for the film, and an introductory song featuring Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Kiara Advani has already been filmed. 5. Varun Dhawan recently gave away this detail about the film during an online banter with Sonakshi Sinha on Instagram. Varun who is said to be playing Kapur's brother in the film called Sonakshi 'bhabi' on the photo-sharing platform. Which kind of confirms that Sonakshi Sinha might be playing Aditya Roy Kapur's love interest in the film. 6. During an interaction with ZoomTV.com Sanjay Dutt revealed some details related to the storyline of the film. He said that “It's an emotional film about two families. Basically, it's more of a drama. It's more about values and characters and it's an interesting film.” View this post on Instagram #KALANK x Kargil schedule wrapped. âï¸ âï¸ âï¸. Ps - these aren't the clothes we are wearing in the film. A post shared by Varun Dhawan (@varundvn) on Oct 12, 2018 at 7:14am PDT 7. Apart from a loaded star cast, the movie also features a very strong lineup of playback singers. It is believed that Guru Randhawa, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Neha Bhasin, Kailash Kher, Arijit Singh, Siddharth Mahadevan, Papon, and Sukhwinder Singh have been confirmed for the movie. 8. The movie will bring together Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit as an onscreen couple after 21 years since the release of 'Mahaanta' in 1997. 9. The movie is believed to be set in the 1940s and might have a Pakistan connect. During his time, Yash Johar had spent a lot of time researching the 1940s era and even travelled to Lahore to get a better understanding of creating a Pakistan from the 40s.

'Kalank' would be one of the two-period films that Sanjay Dutt will be a part of next year. The other one being 'Panipat'. The movie is set to release on 19th April 2019, and going by the works, it seems like all the mysterious vibes it's creating is just the right kind of hype for the movie. With a great director and awesome producers backing the film, along with an envious star cast, we totally expect the film to be a super hit release of 2019.
  21. India's biggest carnival for pets, Pet Fed, just took place in Bengaluru and Delhi, and is scheduled to take place in Mumbai on 19th and 20th January. An essentially one of a kind event, Pet Fed is a gathering of pets and pet lovers spread across 3 acres of lush green land. While pet owners finally had an event exclusively dedicated to their pooches, pet lovers also got an event where they could spend some quality time with thousands of dogs, cats, and other animals. Dino Morea, who has always been surrounded by animals since his childhood and is a noted animal lover, is the ambassador for the event, and is also an investor. © Pet Fed © Pet Fed © Pet Fed Dino is a proud father of two fur-babies - a labrador named Maximus and an Indie named Ganpat. While they form an extremely important part of his personal life, he says he wants to do more. "I will never understand people who don't love animals. Their love is unconditional, and the purest form of love. Some people are just chemically imbalanced in their brain I guess. What else explains cruelty to dogs and other animals?", he says. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Dino Morea (@thedinomorea) on Jul 17, 2018 at 3:52am PDT View this post on Instagram A post shared by Dino Morea (@thedinomorea) on Oct 18, 2017 at 11:41pm PDT View this post on Instagram A post shared by Dino Morea (@thedinomorea) on Aug 31, 2017 at 9:41am PDT Dino said he would like to see Pet Fed extend to all the other major cities, and then tier 2 cities as well. "Not only is it an extremely healthy initiative for pets and pet-related awareness overall, it can give rise to a lot of other business verticals as well, that will generate employment and make pets more inclusive in the commercial space." © Pet Fed © Pet Fed © Pet Fed Dino says it's extremely important for events like Pet Fed to be organized in India, as they help people understand the beauty and innocence of animals. "If one attends an event like this one where they get to spend time with so many animals, they will surely get closer to animals. Yes, it's a slow process and an uphill task, but every day can be a new start. Animals are beautiful and they help us become better human beings", he asserts. © Pet Fed © Pet Fed (Yes, you can have an iguana as a pet too!) Pet Fed is scheduled to take place in Mumbai, at MMRDA, BKC, on 19th and 20th January. One can look forward to a lot of exciting things there, such as discovering dog breeds, dog fashion show, security dog show, adoption camps, and even a special cat zone. For tickets, click here

  23. Next time when you have an argument with your feline worshipping friends about whether cats are better or dogs, read them this article. Along with being cute and loving, dogs are also protecting humans like their ancestral counterparts. In a few parts of the world, humans are entirely dependent on their canine partners for protection. These guard dogs are also some of the biggest dogs in the world. Here's a list that tells you exactly how big: 1. American Akita © wikimedia © wikimedia Weight: 45-130 kg Height: 66 cm The Akita is an intelligent dog with extreme agility and is known for its courage. It is usually owned for domestic purposes, to protect households from burglars. 2. Kangal © wikipedia Weight: 50–83 kg Height: 77–86 cm The Kangal is a strong and heavy-boned dog. Its origin is traced back to Turkey. They are usually referred to as a sheepdog because they are usually trained to guard huge flocks of sheep. It is known to successfully protect sheep from wolves, bears, jackals and even lions and cheetahs. 3. Bull-mastiff © Pexels Weight: 50–59 kg Height: 64–69 cm This dog has a short muzzle and a solid build. They were originally bred by gamekeepers to guard estates in the 19th century. They quickly got the name Gamekeeper's Night Dog. Their genetic background is 60% Mastiff and 40% Bulldog. These dogs are considered a little hard to train but have a natural instinct for protection. Even without training, they are known to protect their owners from burglars and other attackers. 4. African Boerboel © wikipedia Weight: 68-90 kg Height: 60-69 cm The African Boerboel weighs as much as an average human. It has a powerful jaw and thick muscles which are because of its “molloser” dog family descendants. The Molloser family is the foundation of today's mastiff-type breeds. It is often considered to be the most agile of all mastiff breeds. It is extremely loyal to the family it grows with and should be trained during its early years. 5. Dogue de Bordeaux © pixabay Weight: 68 kg Height: 69 cm The Dogue de Bordeaux is also called French Mastiff. This brawny breed's role has seen major changes over the years. In historic times, they allegedly used to guard European castles. Then they moved to pull carts and transporting heavy objects and finally ended up guarding flocks. They are considered as one of the most ancient dog breeds on the face of planet Earth. 6. Fila Brasileiro © wikimedia Weight: 64–82 kg Height: 65–75 cm This is another Mastiff in the list. The Fila Brasileiro or Brazilian Mastiff is considered to be an ideal guard dog. It has remarkable agility, aggressiveness, and an unforgiving temperament. In fact, their unpopular aggression got them banned in many countries. Like most other Mastiffs, the Brasileiro's first instinct isn't to attack its quarry, instead, to hold them away from the animal/person being attacked. The word “Filar” in Portuguese translates to “hold, arrest or grab”. Many years ago, these dogs were used to guard slaves and bring fugitives back to their slave masters. 7. The Tibetan Mastiff Weight: 70 kg Height: 75-79 cm © wikimedia You must have seen images of this dog as it recently went viral for its gigantic size and impressive appeal. If you had a doubt, let us assure that these photos aren't photoshopped. These dogs can actually grow this huge in size. Centuries ago, this dog originated in Tibet and China. They were always used to guard livestock and families against wild animals. Even though it is a loyal dog, their independence and stubbornness might make them neglect your commands when it senses danger. This is why it is not considered a family dog. 8. Komondor © flickr © wikipedia Weight: 60 kg Height: 80 cm The Komondor is a shaggy dog which originated from Hungary. This breed is being preserved and protected as Hungary's national treasure. It is considered a family dog but not a great fit for apartments. This dog is so protective that it keeps staring at family members for hours. If you don't train your Komondor to judge situations properly, get ready to open your doors to multiple lawsuits. 9. The Great Pyrenees © vetstreet Weight: 59 kg Height: 81 cm With a weather resistant double coat and a mane around the neck and shoulder, the Pyrenees is an ideal protector in cold weather. They have an extremely intimidating bark. Earlier, they used to be nocturnal because of their protection duties and some even end up barking uncontrollably, at night, to this day. They are not great with accepting commands, especially if they weren't disciplined during their early years. However, they prove to be a good family dog if trained properly. 10.
