  1. While the Indian cricket team are currently in England, putting in their blood and sweat in the attempts of winning the third World Cup trophy in their cricketing history, it seems as if their passion for the game is not enough for the young kids of Gopalganj, Bihar. A couple of days ago, two minor kids in Dhodhwaliyan village of Kuchaikot police station area of Gopalganj, got into a bit of a scuffle during a gully cricket match. However, unlike a typical sporting spat, one of the kids shot his friend in the chest and his neck, leaving him in an extremely critical condition. The kid with the gun then ran away and successfully escaped while firing the pistol, while the injured minor was rushed to the Sadar Hospital nearby, wherein he is fighting the battle of life and death. The Police were, however, successful in getting a statement out of the victim and are actively looking for the shooter. According to a Jagran report, the victim, Pradyuman Singh, was walking down the streets of his village late in the evening when the accused, Priyanshu Pandey's father beat him up for the spat that took place earlier in the field. Meanwhile, Priyanshu arrived with a pistol in his hand and shot his friend once in the chest and once in the neck, as revenge. That's how crazy people are about the game of cricket in India. The passion and zeal to win even a small irrelevant game can make the competitors do absolutely abysmal and horrible things to each other. Make no mistake, we are, in no way, promoting such violent behaviour. We hope the young lad has a speedy recovery and gets back on the field quickly while the wrongdoers are caught and appropriate action is taken.
  2. Less than 6 years ago, a young Andrew Robertson from a small town in Glasgow, Scotland led his local team Queens Park to a third-place finish and Playoff appearance in the third tier of Scottish football league. With a spinal injury hindering his football development, Robertson was set to give up on a career in football and join a university program to complete his undergraduate studies. However, he was called up to the first team by Queens Park during the 2012-13 season - a lifeline to his footballing career. Reuters After clinching a Playoff place with Queens Park, Andy was brought to Scottish premiership side Dundee where he spent a year until being purchased for £3 million by Hull City who were plying their trade in the Championship at that time. Promotion in his first season with the club meant that he would now be on the radar of major English clubs. After spending two seasons with Hull City, Robertson caught the eye of one Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool which inspired an eight-million-pound move to Merseyside in 2017. What followed over the next two seasons was neither anticipated by Liverpool nor by young Robertson. Reuters The seed had been laid by 2017 for the direction in which Klopp wanted to take his team and Robertson was exactly the kind of player to implement that vision. A young, raw, talented full-back who could run relentlessly and mark his man astutely. Over the last two seasons, under Klopp's guidance, the 25-year-old has established himself as a stalwart in the Liverpool defence, making him one of the (if not the best) left-back in European football at the moment. Appearing in 36 of the 38 premier league matches played by Liverpool this season, he has 11 assists to his name and contributed significantly to the 21 clean sheets kept by Liverpool - the highest in the league this season. Reuters Virgil van Dijk has often been touted as the main reason why Liverpool's defence has risen through the ranks the way it has this season, but the two full backs; Robertson and the young Englishman Trent Alexander-Arnold have truly made that unit a defensive rock, that played a pivotal role in the Reds' much-awaited triumph in Europe. From a small-town boy from Glasgow who almost gave up the sport to becoming a bit-part player for a local team in Scotland's third division to now UEFA Champions League winner; the journey of dynamic Robertson is the one that continues to give way to young and aspiring footballers who're looking to make a mark in the sport.
  3. There are kids, and then there are pure geniuses like 8-year-old Niall Thogulava from Chennai. Remember the time when cartoon shows, playing with friends 5 hours a day and coming home at the end of a school day used to be our biggest points of interest? Well, Niall is an example of how the generations, since ours, have evolved. This child prodigy from Southern India has portrayed exceptional talents when it comes to reading, writing and speaking hundreds of languages from around the world. Niall is an inspiring polyglot who can read and write as many as 106 languages! *WOAH* © NDTV How did he do it in such a short time of being around? Well, blame it on the internet (just like this year's CBSE 12th topper). Niall took the help of the internet, especially YouTube, to learn all the languages he has mastered today. As per an ANI report, Niall also knows the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), which allows one to transcribe the sound of any spoken language in order to ascertain its pronunciation. Niall told ANI, "I do not know how my interest in languages began. I can read and write over 106 languages and can fluently speak 10 languages. I am currently learning five new languages." © ANI Niall's father, Shankar Narayanan, is a proud man when he says, "Last year, he started developing an interest for new languages and from there he took a great leap. Making use of the internet, he started learning one language after another." Niall is proof that if you set your heart on something, and work hard to see it through, anything is possible and age is no bar for it.
  4. From comparing the image of black hole to sambhar wada, to praising a schoolgirl for riding a horse to her exam center, to spotting the rarest of the rare talents from across the globe, Anand Mahindra never fails to impress us with his take on anything and everything under the sun. Reuters And once again, the chairman of the Mahindra Group has introduced us to another young prodigy, whose talents were unknown to most of us until now. The young prodigy we're talking about is a 5-year-old Iranian boy who plays football like it's nobody's damn business. View this post on Instagram There is something about Arat which distinguishes him from the other kids in his age, and that's fighting back after a failure !

We will try our best to attend the greatest football academic in the future and in order to achieve our goal we need exercise and experience.

  5. When we think about the game of cricket, we think about a game of sheer passion, emotions and even a way of life for some of the fans who are tilted towards the 'crazy' side, which is not something to frown upon. One must have a passion for something in life and cricket, clearly is a popular choice. Take this young boy from Tamil Nadu who cries out a river when his idol, his 'Thala' got dismissed on an objectionable run-out at the hands of fielder Ishan Kishan in the Indian Premier League final against Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians. MS Dhoni run-out! Out or Not out? https://t.co/HW7L7XMx68 — Aditya Pandey (@adityapandey148) May 15, 2019 The fact that the decision was announced on the giant screen inside the stadium after the third umpire reviewed the footage again and again, convincing along the way, all Dhoni supporters thought that their captain just might have made it across the crease. But when the screen showed “OUT” in that big red font, this little man lost his cool and let his emotions get the better of him. Dhoni not out..... 3rd umpire sethuruvan ððð pic.twitter.com/PWXpeUpvps — Siva (@Siva68079003) May 13, 2019 Sitting in his mother's lap, the boy can be seen expressing his emotions. Watching Dhoni walk back towards the dug-out, he curses out at the third umpire, Nigel Llong who, let's just say is not a very popular character ever since he broke a door at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore after getting tired of arguing with Royal Challengers Bangalore captain, Virat Kohli. Anyhow, this is what the boy said in Tamil, according to The Times of India: “Third umpire will commit suicide for the wrong decision of the umpire on the ground.” In the background, his mother tries to convince him by saying that the Indian Premier League is scripted and that it was because of “match-fixing” that the third umpire gave the unjust decision for Mahi's wicket. In the defence of the young boy, we are still not 100% sure whether Dhoni was in fact out or not as one camera shows that his bat was well inside the crease when the ball struck the bails off while the second camera shows that Dhoni did not make it to the line in time. Even the adults of social media could not come to a proper conclusion: DHONI WAS NOT OUTð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ — KhushbuSundar â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ (@khushsundar) May 12, 2019 I m Dhoni fan..

  6. Hard work is important and so is experiencing failure. If you don't succeed at the first attempt, don't lose hope and give up. Gather yourself and try again. And again. And again, until you succeed. Facebook Phoenix, an adorable little kid was in his martial arts class, trying to break a board. He did not have to break the board to advance to the next level, but he still wanted to do it. Phoenix's proud mother shared the emotional video on social media. Facebook Before I continue with Phoenix's story, let's give a big shoutout to his friends and the instructor. These are the kind of friends people deserve to have in their lives. After some failed attempts, Phoenix was very dejected and was in tears as he couldn't succeed. Suddenly, the room was filled with echoes of kids chanting Phoenix's name, cheering him up and encouraging him. Finally, the kid broke the board and taught us one of the biggest life lessons - Never give up, no matter how hard things are in life. Childhood is a crucial time for any and every kid. The things they learn in their growing years, shape their personality and future. While they learn a lot of things in life, sometimes, they end up teaching us adults some valuable life lessons with their innocent acts. Just like how Phoenix taught us to never give up.
  7. Ever since I read about the OnePlus phone and the community, I was sure I too wanted to get my hands on this beauty. It was the phone to have, and the price was a steal for a phone that had everything one needed--great camera, a sleek look and a vision that was tech goals. So my journey into the OnePlus bandwagon started with its first ever edition, and boy, I can proudly say I am a fan for life. OnePlus It's easy usage, simple yet sleek design and fast Operating System is just what makes this phone such a hit with the millennials. I mean yeah, we know we spend most of our time either on social media or clicking photos and this phone does complete justice to our needs. The rear camera combination is 16MP and 20MP with OIS, while the front camera remains 16MP. OnePlus 6T also sports a newer NightScape mode for better low-light pictures. The phone has an in-screen fingerprint scanner, which the company called Screen Lock. The battery is 3,700mAh with fast charging seen on other OnePlus phones. OnePlus And now, just days before the OnePlus 7 launch in India, OnePlus makers have announced a big price drop for OnePlus 6T and I am over the moon. The smartphone with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage will be available for Rs 31,499 with Rs 9,000 off during Amazon Summer Sale. OnePlus 6T will also get Rs 1,500 instant discount on SBI credit and debit cards. This will be the last chance to buy the OnePlus 6T at a lowered price and I am already scouting for this fabulous deal online. The offer period is from 3 May, 12 PM onwards. The offer is live on Amazon.in, Oneplus.in, OnePlus exclusive offline stores, Croma outlets and Reliance. This is the cheapest the 6T has ever been and it's the last chance to buy one. So hurry up and join this exciting world of the OnePlus community.
  8. Voting is a fundamental right that every citizen deserves and should exercise as well. Believe it or not, but the entire nation's fate depends on the tiny mark of blue ink on your finger. Even our political leaders understand this, which is why they are busy with election campaigns and urging people to vote. Reuters PM Modi is also busy with the election campaign and almost a month ago, he had urged people (actors, cricketers and many prominent sports personalities) from all walks of life, to encourage their fans and followers to vote. In one of those tweets, PM Modi asked Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar to "creatively ensure high voter awareness and participation in the coming elections." Now, actor Shah Rukh Khan has responded to PM Modi's message and came up with a rap song, 'Karo Matdan', requesting people to go and vote in the ongoing Lok Sabha 2019 elections. YouTube/ Red Chillies Entertainment The song is not only peppy, but also brings to surface a talent in SRK that we weren't aware of - rapping. He wrote, "PM sahib @narendramodi ne creativity ki liye bola tha. Main thoda late ho gaya video banane mein...aap mat hona Vote karne mein!!! 'Voting is not only our Right, it is our Power.' Please Use It. Thank u to @tanishkbagchi @abbyviral @parakramsinghr." PM sahib @narendramodi ne creativity ki liye bola tha. Main thoda late ho gaya video banane mein...aap mat hona Vote karne mein!!! 'Voting is not only our Right, it is our Power.' Please Use It. Thank u to @tanishkbagchi @abbyviral @parakramsinghr . https://t.co/9280i8BnK3 — Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) April 22, 2019 PM Modi too replied to the song and called it a "fantastic effort." He wrote, "I am sure the people of India, especially first time voters will pay heed to your appeal and come out to vote in large numbers." Fantastic effort, @iamsrk! I am sure the people of India, especially first time voters will pay heed to your appeal and come out to vote in large numbers https://t.co/y2OLgrwOOS — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) April 22, 2019 Honestly, after listening to this song, we can't wait for a rap face-off between SRK and the OG 'Gully Boy' Ranveer Singh.
  9. 'Game Of Thrones' has a cult following for a lot of reasons. One of which is the fact that the show has stellar costumes that look authentic to the timeline they shoot in. However, wearing such context-heavy costumes comes at a heavy price. Sometimes, the fabric or the design was so uncomfortable that the actors could do nothing but sit through long and tiresome shooting hours. Maisie Williams, in a recent interview with a leading publication revealed that the prep for 'Game Of Thrones', aside from the strenuous shooting in extremely cold locations, also had to deal with uncomfortable straps and bellies. For Maisie Williams, as Arya Stark in the initial few seasons, had to wear a strap across her chest to hide her breasts. At 15, while normal teenage girls had crushes and an awkward teenage life, Maisie Williams had to wear a strap and hide her breasts for long shoot hours as her character Arya, was pretending to be a boy in the series. And after the strap stopped working, Maisie Williams had to wear a "chubby belly" to "even out the playing field" so no one( other characters) would suspect her a girl on the show. © HBO It was only in the sixth season that the costume designers decided to let Arya grow on the show so they gave a bra to Maisie Williams as a part of the costume. This made the costume in general so much more comfortable for Maisie Williams.
  10. An Indian student named Sainath Manikandan in Abu Dhabi has developed robots to help protect marine life and minimise human labour on farms. That's so cool, right? Sainath is a student at GEMS United Indian School and he has built not one, but two robots, which is quite impressive. He hopes his innovation would be implemented on a bigger scale in the UAE. @DianaAward #DianasLegacy We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Goumbook's Drop It Youth Ambassador, Sainath Manikandan, has been awarded The @DianaAward for his work as an environmentalist and is driving change in his community by campaigning. Congratulations Sainath!!! pic.twitter.com/P6BPvfozP7 — lalitha manikandan (@lallimanikandan) July 3, 2018 His first robot is called MBot Cleaner. It's essentially a Marine Robot Cleaner that helps preserve the marine environment. The other robot called AgriBot, as the name suggests, is an agriculture robot that will help reduce the labour of farmers who work in countries with high temperatures, like the UAE. According to him, the MBot is a prototype robot that can remove floating waste from surface water. “MBot is a prototype robot that can remove floating wastes from surface water. It is basically shaped like a boat and can be operated remotely with a radio control. It runs with two motors that help the boat move in the water," Manikandan said. © Twitter The robot's wheel and the third motor are fitted with popsicle sticks to help push waste from the water bodies into the storage basket. He also noted the robot can be powered by solar panels instead of batteries. The AgriBot, on the other hand, will help the farmers in hot countries like the UAE by performing elementary functions involved in farming, such as ploughing the field, sowing seeds, and covering the seeds with soil. “The robot is autonomous and provides the facility for the optional switching of the ploughing system when required,” he said. Manikandan said, “Recycling just one tonne of paper can save 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 380 gallons of oil, 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space and 4,000 kilowatts of energy.” Last year alone, Manikandan collected nearly 2,500 kgs of paper and 250 kgs of plastic.
  11. Leaving gadgets around kids can be a tricky thing and this may just be one of the most feared reasons for not leaving your stuff around kids. They tend to be inquisitive and want to play around with gadgets they may not understand or to the contrary, understand rather too well. © MensXP_AkshayBhalla In an incident, a journalist's iPad was disabled for 25,536,442 minutes because his 3-year-old kid tried to unlock the device repeatedly with the wrong passcode. It happened to journalist Evan Osnos over the weekend and he took to Twitter to explain his problems. He said that his 3-year-old had been trying and failing repeatedly to unlock the iPad and posted a picture of what happened next: Uh, this looks fake but, alas, it's our iPad today after 3-year-old tried (repeatedly) to unlock. Ideas? pic.twitter.com/5i7ZBxx9rW — Evan Osnos (@eosnos) April 6, 2019 The iPad has been locked for almost 48 years in case you were trying to calculate. Osnos' iPad is now locked until 2067 which is more than anyone's levels of patience. Replying to of the tweets, one of the users said “I would just wait it out,” one wrote, while another said: “Next time just give the kid the passcode.” According to sources at Apple, there's nothing that can be done about the locked iPad and it's rendered useless until the wait time is fulfilled. In fact, the iPad may not get fixed even when hooked up to a computer and a firmware reset or update is conducted. To be honest, we feel bad for Osnos as his iPad is simply locked and he won't be able to do anything about it. In fact, this just proves that Apple's security systems work as advertised. © YouTube The iPad is supposed to do exactly that when there are repeated attempts at unauthorised access. This security feature is present in all Apple products. So, if you want to avoid a situation similar to this fiasco, we suggest you either give the passcode to your kid or keep it away in a safe spot. If you want to know more about the iPad, you can read our full review here.
  12. They say that God often heeds the prayers of young kids. The reason cited is pretty simple and straightforward. Children are innocent and their hearts are pure, uncorrupted by the world's twisted ways of existence. Their earnest wishes, and innocence make them God's most favourite subjects. Not sure about the bit involving God, but everything that has been said about young kids being truthful and full of innocence and goodness is absolutely true. © Pixabay They will share their chocolate with you without a second thought, throw a fit of terror and shed a tear for the deer that lost its life to the leopard on National Geographic and hoot every time the hero wins over the evil monster and save the day! Above all else, kids are honest about their thoughts and selfless with the love and kindness that they have to share. A rather strange incident from Northeast is proof of all this that we just pointed out. © Flickr A little boy accidentally ran over his neighbour's chicken while cycling. Heartbroken and sad, the boy rushed the chicken to the nearest hospital along with all the money he had. A picture showing the boy carrying the chick has since gone viral on social media. The silent plea for help on the kid's face is heartwarming. We hope this boy and many others grow up feeling for every living being around them, and grow up to be young men and women who respect and care for every life on earth. The comments section of the post is filled with praises for the boy's kind gesture. A user wrote, “this kind of humanity, innocent and pure”, while another blessed the young boy in the comments. Many others have praised the little boy's parents for raising a child who knows how to care, while another user suggested that adults take a lesson from the kid. How a thoughtful act has brought so many people together.
  13. From a street-smart lad Bittoo Sharma to the ruthless tyrant Alauddin Khilji; from a corrupt officer-turned-hero Sangram 'Simmba' Bhalerao to a talented street rapper Murad trying to make it big in the world; Ranveer Singh has proved his versatility and mettle with every character he has played. Now, the actor is gearing up to play another challenging role of his career, i.e. getting into the shoes of Kapil Dev for his upcoming movie '83. And when the real-life and reel-life superstars come together on stage, can there be anything else one can possibly ask for? Instagram On days when Ranveer Singh is not taking the world by storm with his performance, he is doing so with his questionable (yet widely appreciated) taste in fashion. So, winning a style icon award is not something unusual or surprising. But, what's interesting is the fact that Ranveer received the award from none other than Kapil Dev, the guy he will soon play on the big screen. In fact, as Ranveer came to collect his award, he even imitated the bowling action of 'The Haryana Hurricane' and then hugged him. Instagram Reportedly, he said "Abhi to party shuru hui hai, Mic mere haath mei aaya hai. I feel amazing accepting award from the legend, Kapil Dev. How am I going to look this handsome, he is the next character I am playing. I am hoping to make him proud." View this post on Instagram Two crazy people on stage in #htmoststylish ðð . #ranveersingh #akshaykumar #deepikapadukone #htmoststylish #loveyou #baba #kingofhearts #deepveeraddict #keepmyinsta2019 A post shared by Ranveer Singh Fc (@ranveeriansfc_) on Mar 29, 2019 at 9:53pm PDT Given both 'Simmba' and 'Gully Boy' were two of the biggest hits, people have huge expectations from '83 too. During the award show, Ranveer even gave a *not so* useful advice to the newlyweds, which actor Akshay Kumar was clearly not satisfied with. He said, "Jo tumne kiya hai, bohot sahi kiya hai.

  14. Usually, students who haven't prepared for an exam, tend to fill their answer sheets with relevant (or sometimes random) info. Let's admit it, we all have done it or at least thought of doing something along these lines at some point. However, a young boy in Karnataka decided to fill his Economics answer sheets with 'PUBG Mobile', simply because he didn't study and had nothing else to write. Yes, these PUBG Mobile controversies are getting seriously getting out of hands now. The boy, who spoke to The New Indian Express, said he lost track of his studies this year after getting addicted to the online mobile game, and couldn't prepare for his exams. He admitted that he got so engrossed in the game, that he forgot the exams were around the corner. His parents saw him being busy on his phone all the time, but he kept them in the dark by saying that he was chatting with friends. And instead of writing answers to the questions, he filled his sheets with 'PUBG Mobile' information, covering everything from 'How to install PUBG Mobile', to 'Tips and Tricks'. © PUBG Corporation While talking to TNIE, he said, “I was studious but got attracted towards PUBG as it was entertaining, and soon got addicted to it. Sometimes I even bunked classes to play the game and sat in the nearby garden.” He apparently got angry with himself and wrote about the game in his answer sheet. The teacher who evaluated the boy's answer sheet was pretty surprised to see all the info about 'PUBG Mobile'. The teacher said, “Usually students who do not know the answers write film songs or famous movie dialogues. But this boy has written everything about the game, starting from steps to download it to how to play it. He seems to have good mastery over the game.” © PUBG Corporation The issue was then reported to the principal, who then summoned the boy's parents to notify them about his addiction. It looks his parents took him for counselling, and he is now preparing to reappear in the exam.
  15. Tencent is probably not happy about the state of PUBG Mobile in India, as the game has found itself in the news for all the wrong reasons. The negative stories around the game have been pilling up and it doesn't seem to be getting better as a new story has showed up online. © PUBG According to a new report, a 15-year-old boy in Jalandhar has apparently stolen Rs 50,000 from his father's account to spend on PUBG Mobile. The teenager, who's a student of class 10th, used the money to buy himself a gamepad to play the title. As for the rest of the money, he is said to have spent it on the game's cosmetic items like skins, weapons, etc. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The matter was brought to light when the father filed a complaint with the local police. As it turns out, the boy used his father's account to transfer money to his friend's Paytm account, which was later used to buy the items online. The boy has since confessed on the matter and even revealed that he had deleted all the OTPs and transaction texts to keep his father in the dark. The cyber cell ended up launching an investigation, but the father dropped all the charges after discovering that his son was behind the whole fiasco. No wonder PUBG Mobile has been receiving a lot of flak lately. It's incidents like these that puts the game in a weird spot. In case you don't know, the game was recently banned by the Rajkot Police, and the authorities might take the necessary actions against the players found playing it in the banned region.

  16. Tennis is a sport in which you don't lose the match until the last point. We have seen players turning around the game from the match-point and winning the match. Making a comeback is what makes the crowd and fans go wild. Something similar happened yesterday in the Mexican Open where, arguably the most notorious player on tour, Nick Kyrgios came back from a set down to win the match 3-6, 7-6(2), 7-6(6). The Australian didn't seem completely in-sync with his game in the first set, which was mainly because he was feeling sick. Once the first set was over, Kyrgios called out the trainer and said that he felt unwell but would play on as he feared the media would "blow it up". © AP The Kyrgios that we all have known for these many years has done what he has wanted without caring what the people would say. There have been many instances where he has forfeited the match just because he didn't want to go ahead with it. But surprisingly, here we witnessed a side of Kyrgios which we haven't seen ever before. Despite feeling sick, he didn't quit and returned for the second set completely changing the momentum of the game. The revelling in the atmosphere caused a frustrated Nadal to call for the crowd to settle down.

But the warning didn't seem to affect the 23-year-old. He produced some fantastic shots throughout the second set and broke the Spaniard in the tie-breaker. After calling for the trainer again between the second and third sets due to a sore back, Kyrgios went on to save five break points in the sixth game of the final set. He once again fought over his weakness in the deciding tiebreak, particularly on the second match point when his volley caught the tape but toppled over and landed on the line. The win against Rafa meant a lot to the Aussie as it was for the first time that he came back from behind to defeat the World No.2. This sole incident has definitely overshadowed all his nitty game antics and has made people praise him for his game. View this post on Instagram THIS is what it means to @k1ngkyrg1os ð .

    Honest Review: Gully Boy

    Zain & Shantanu just had to review Gully Boy this week. Is the movie worth your money? This is the only review you need to watch to figure it out.
  19. The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in India, which was passed in 2016, has come under grave scrutiny and protests in the North-East, especially in Assam and Meghalaya. The bill claims to be 'politically motivated' in these regions and has been termed 'anti-Assam' by BJP ally Asom Gana Parishad and has also been cruised by other regional parties. (c)Twitter The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016 was formulated by the government in order to change the deification of illegal immigrants in the country. The bill, which was introduced in the Lok Sabha in July 2016, seeks to amend the citizenship act of 1955, to provide citizenship to illegal immigrants from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, who're either Hindu, Sikhs, Christians, Jains, Buddhists or Parsis. The bill also aims to reduce the amount of time for staying in India to become a citizen in the first place. So, instead of 11 years, a minimum of 6 years of staying in the country would be required, if the bill is passed. (c)Twitter Following the new amendment made to the bill, Assam and Meghalaya reacted to it in a grim manner saying the move would make Assam a dumping ground for all Bangladeshi Hindus. The BJP coalition partner have threatened to cut ties with the party if the bill is passed as the locals believe it will affect the cultural identity and linguistics of the indigenous people of the state. Assam since then has been on protest on the passing of the bill as they believe the long standing concern over the issues of refugees is not going to be put to rest if the bill is in action. (c)Twitter The younger folks in the states have been very upfront about the government's agenda and have questioned it time and again. The ferociousness of their honesty is met with little or no answers so far. A few days ago a young 19-year-old boy Rahul Rajkhowa took to YouTube and posted a rap protesting the bill. The rapper adds, that while the government cannot even help rescue 15 miners stuck in an illegal coal mine, they're hell-bent on helping people from foreign countries based on their religion. The rap ends with the line "...and your agenda for progress is fake" and leaves us gutted with what young people from the North-Eastern states feel at the arms of apathy and agenda pushing. Watch the video here: (c)Twitter While the protests still continue against the BJP-led government in Assam over this bill, with All Assam Student Union (AASU) waving their black flags at the CM Sarbananda Sonwal, we're not sure what the end result might be. We just hope the government realises the fallacies and problematic situations that may arise with the bill in action and take a relevant step towards ensuring uniformity and peace in the region, instead.
  20. We've already heard a few stories about banning the insanely popular game PUBG. Last week, the Gujarat government forwarded a circular banning the game from educational institutions. The state's primary education department had issued a circular that directed primary schools to ensure that a ban has been implemented on PUBG. Now, 11-year-old Ahad has written to the Maharashtra Government to ban the game. In the letter, he said, "it promotes immoral conduct such as violence, murder, aggression, looting, gaming addiction and cyberbullying". The boy further wrote in the letter, "I will be compelled to seek appropriate legal [civil and criminal] proceeding as per law; naturally at your cost and consequences" if the game is not banned." The letter was sent to seven ministers, including Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Ravi Shankar Prasad (Ministry of Electronics and IT), and Vinod Tawde (Maharashtra Education Minister). When Ahad didn't receive a response from the public officials, he then decided to file a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Bombay High Court. © YouTube The Jammu and Kashmir Students Association has also asked the Governor of the state to ban the game immediately due to poor board exam results. PUBG Mobile has been very popular since launch and people are literally hooked onto it. There have also been cases when people got addicted to the game and turned to physical self-harm. We must keep in mind that these games are built for entertainment and not supposed to be taken so seriously. A recent report by the Quartz states that a PUBG fan spends more than 8 hours in a week on an average on the game. © YouTube More than 120 cases of PUBG addiction were registered at Services for Healthy Use of Technology (SHUT) clinic in National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS). Signs of addiction include deprivation of sleep, loss of real-life interests, drop in lecture attendance, and poor academic performances. While the game is fun to play, a major reason for the fan following is the fad around it. One reason why many Indians are playing the game is that “everyone's talking about it.” Source: India Today
  21. Looking back in time, I had always wanted to become a cricketer and my entire childhood was spent on the pitch. Then came the shock for me, as just like many talented young players, I could not clear the national trials and sadly had to put the bat down. My parents and teachers asked me to focus on the dreaded board exams. Back then I was extremely skinny. So skinny that my ribs were visible to the naked eye! People assumed that just because I was skinny, I was weak, which resulted in me getting bullied. This got to my head at times and I wanted to hit back but since I was way too skinny, they would often overpower me. This constant body shaming was bringing down my morale and confidence. Then I thought that if I would gain some weight, people will stop picking on me and I could stand up for myself. I joined a gym solely for this purpose. When I went in, I couldn't even lift a 2.5 kg dumbbell and even bodyweight exercises would hurt me. I was yet again bullied at the gym. I got frustrated within a week with all the bullying at the gym and decided to quit. Later that night, I saw Yash Anand's body transformation on YouTube. He was skinny just like me. Actually, even skinnier! But with consistency and hard work he built a great physique. This motivated me to forget about my bullies and just focus on my goal. Since that day there has been no turning back. Week by week, I overcame my weaknesses and got stronger. I learned from different Indian YouTubers and made my diet that fitted my lifestyle and budget. Training I usually follow two muscle groups a day routine and split it up into push-pull. Compound movements still are the core of my training. Progressive overload plays another big factor in muscle growth that I have always kept in mind. Eating I counted the calories that I needed in order to put on muscle mass and that was about it. I cook all my meals and keep a check on how much I am consuming and what all I am eating throughout the day. My ultimate goal is to build a physique like Hrithik Roshan, and I believe that in the last 2 years I have made some progress towards my goal. And I will continue to better myself each day.
  22. Growing up, we couldn't get through few days at a time without being reminded of and getting told how poorly we are faring in every aspect when compared to “pados wale Sharmaji ka beta”. The many merits and achievements of this X, Y or Z Sharma guy didn't help to make things better for us any way. Instead, all the discussions involving the guy somehow always managed to lead the entire household into a dismal, dark place. What did we ever get out of these stories about Sharmaji ka beta anyway? So you know what, to hell with Sharmaji and his overachiever beta. Why? Because there are better and more pertinent stories to be told. There are other achievers who have really broken the set paths, to chart their own destiny. These are the stories that we ought to pay heed to, share with the young and old, but most of all, get inspired by and strive for.

When an egg broke the internet earlier this month, completely smashing Kylie Jenner's hold on having the world record of “most liked picture on Instagram” with its very own 50 million+ likes on Instagram, we are sure nobody saw that virality coming. With almost 3 times the number of likes on Kylie Jenner's picture, Ishan's clever move paid off, with a very simple call to action - “like this picture of an egg to beat Kylie's record”. And boy, did word spread like wildfire? People from all over the world came together to topple Kylie's record, and the rest is history.

We got this ð #LikeTheEgg #EggSoldiers #EggGang A post shared by EGG GANG ð (@world_record_egg) on Jan 4, 2019 at 9:05am PST Now, when most of us heard about the “world_record_egg” we thought this was yet another senseless social media challenge people are giving in to. But little did we know that for Massachusetts based 19-year-old Ishan Goel, this was his life-changing moment. Often hailed as a marketing guru, Egg Gang (https://www.instagram.com/world_record_egg/ ) was Ishan's brainchild. Turns out this avid marketing genius had laid out a full-fledged plan to break Kylie's record even before he set up the Egg Gang record. He went all out preparing for his final attack, which involved reaching out to his network of celebs, influencers and friends to like the page, as well as pushing the challenge out on Reddit! View this post on Instagram stormi webster ð¼ð½ A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on Feb 6, 2018 at 1:14pm PST Ishan explained his strategy in detail in an interview: “There are two core reasons that this post took off. The first is that the internet fell in love with the idea of using a crowdsourced approach to be able to have a touchpoint to a celebrity that could potentially influence that celebrity's actions or, at the very least, garner a response from them. The second is that the internet quickly began to see it as a challenge, which inspired people to invest their time and energy into helping drive the post into a frenzy.” But in case you thought this was Ishan's first brush with viral digital marketing, you are highly mistaken. Teenage proved that Ishan Goel was no less than a child prodigy, when he managed to raise highest donations for his school's American Heart Association program, as a 13-year-old. That's not all, Ishan successfully established his own marketing firm at the age of 14, and by the time he turned 15, Ishan was already working with American business mogul and investor, Mark Cuban! View this post on Instagram 15 years old. That's how old I was when I decided to walk up to @mcuban and pitch myself. Fast forward to today, I've managed to work on numerous projects with him and his team and it's been an amazing privilege. Age shouldn't stop you from doing anything you want. A post shared by Ishan Goel (@ishansgoel) on Jan 19, 2018 at 3:22pm PST Talking about the huge success that his personal egg challenge turned out to be, he told FEMAIL in an interview that, “The idea that an inanimate object can connect so many people is a testament to the fact that people love to root for the underdog”. Ishan is hopeful that his unusual story will inspire other youngsters around the world to break free set societal fates, and push their luck so that they can seize every chance they get to launch their careers early, and have an edge over everyone else.

  23. Famous for its beautiful mountainous landscapes and holy shrines, the Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) has truly lived up to its tag of 'paradise on earth'. If the natural beauty enticed the visitors, the artistry of local artisans further allowed the J&K handicrafts industry to make a name across the globe for their exquisite designs and craftsmanship. But, the Indian state that was once labelled as the 'Valley Of Paradise' has undeniably become the 'Valley Of Death'. Today, this strife-torn state is only famous for the bleak stories of violence, lethal attacks, militant insurgency and never-ending protests. The education system has degraded to the extent of almost being non-existent. The infrastructure is still a work in progress. The supplies are limited. And, to top it all, the presence of Indian military forces has led to restricted movements of the locals in their very own state. While the situation is not yet ideal in the region, the youth in J&K have found solace in sports in a bid to escape all that has affected them and their families over the years. We've seen the likes of Parvez Rasool making a name for himself in cricket, and, more recently, the spirited Real Kashmir football team proving their mettle in the ever-competitive I-League. Now, the beautiful state of J&K has given India another sporting gem in the form of Saqlain Tariq. © Pro Volleyball League Born in Poonch - one of the most remote districts of J&K, bounded by Line of Control (LoC) on three sides, Tariq has spent a major part of his life hiding from insurgency and consistent shelling which often resulted in the loss of life and property. Evacuating his house, taking shelter in makeshift places and haunted by the fact that any moment could be his last; Saqlain faced it all. While the youngsters of his age would ideally find themselves cribbing over gadgets and other material gains, Saqlain was just happy to be alive. In a place where breathing was no less than a luxury, Saqlain knew that there wasn't much he could do. His education took a toll, getting a job was always going to be difficult and the future looked bleak. But, just when all hope seemed lost, the 21-year-old found a ray of hope in volleyball - a sport that gave him an identity and made him feel that he mattered. Picking up the sport at the age of six, Saqlain's journey in volleyball was greatly influenced by his family's support and enthusiasm for the game. "I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for my family. They've supported me in the thick and thin of life. All my achievements in volleyball is an outcome of their beliefs in me," emotions get the better of Saqlain as he credits his family. "Since I could remember, my father was running a local volleyball club in Poonch. He used to take me to the practice sessions when I was a kid. Over the years, I developed a liking towards the sport. But then, there were some problems. It wasn't that easy," the 21-year-old reveals before getting comfortable in the couch. © Pro Volleyball League Saqlain's mother, just like our own, was overwhelmed by the fear of losing him every time he went out to practice. "She (mother) was really concerned about my well-being. Given our state of affairs, she was probably right in her own domain to fear for my life. After all, she had lost her loved ones and seen too much in her life. But, this is where my dad stood out and ensured nothing was going to affect my growth as a volleyball player," he adds further. Honing his skills and improving his game at his father's facility, Saqlain's talent was just too hard to go unnoticed. And, this when his father Mohammad Tariq Khan, a state-level volleyball player himself, took a call that would eventually change the life of his son. "My father couldn't make the cut for the national team. And, he knew, if I stayed here (J&K), my fate will be the same. I would have faced survival issues and, maybe, I would have become a stone pelter. So, against the liking of my mother and other family members, he sent me to Khanna (near Ludhiana) for studies," Saqlain recalls with a smile on his face. But, for a youngster who shares a close bond with his parents and never left his home earlier, staying away from family wasn't easy for Saqlain. "I was there (in Khanna) for a few months before the homesickness crept in. For the first time in my life, I was on my own, dealing with day-to-day problems by myself. It took a toll on me. And, as a result, I told my father that I want to return home," the 6-feet-3-inches tall player reveals. "My father spoke to the warden to grant me a few days leave and I returned home. I was happy that I was finally going to see my family and all. But, my father wasn't happy with my decision. When I reached home, my father didn't speak me to me once. And, after a day or so, I realised why. Realising the sacrifices of my parents and the dreams they had for me, I was left with no option, but to return to Khanna. And, the moment I told my father about my decision, he was elated," Saqlain talks about the learning curve that went on to play a pivotal role in his journey as a volleyball player. © Pro Volleyball League Since that day, there was no turning back for this youngster. He played his first nationals for J&K when he was in the eighth standard and rose through the ranks on the back of an improved showing in the domestic circuit. Soon, he found his way into the national team. Named as the captain of the Indian team, Saqlain had his international outing at the Asian Championship in Sri Lanka in 2014 when he was just 17. Thriving in the position of a setter, Saqlain also went on to represent India at the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) Games where he played a crucial role in his side's bronze-medal finish last year. "When I went abroad to participate in the international tournaments, I was kind of shocked to see the level of competition there. Countries like China, Japan and South Korea have dominated the sport in Asia. But, the fact that Iran surprised everyone with a gold medal in men's volleyball at the 2018 Asiad shows that it's all about improving. It was something that we (Indian players) can learn from. That's why I always cherish international exposure," Saqlain makes a valid point. On the back of hard work and perseverance, Saqlain, then, managed to convince U Mumba Volley to shell out a whopping Rs 1.1 lakh for his services in the upcoming edition of the Pro Volleyball League (PVL). An initiative of Baseline Ventures and Volleyball Federation Of India, the first edition of the PVL is set to begin on 2nd February with Kochi Blue Spikers taking on U Mumba Volley in the first match. The league will see six teams fighting for the title which will be lifted by the winner on 22nd February in the final in Chennai. "I have waited for a long time to get an opportunity like the Pro Volleyball League. I want to thank the Volleyball Federation of India to bring such a league to the fore. It is going to be very beneficial for players like me. Since it also involves foreign players, the league will help us in improving our game by learning new things from them. It's a great platform for the Indian players to prove their mettle and popularise the game in the country," Saqlain lauds the advent of Pro Volleyball League. © Pro Volleyball League As a 21-year-old, Saqlain's love for Punjabi songs and, more particularly, for Bohemia might make him just another youngster, but when asked about his message for the youth in the Valley, Saqlain answered with maturity. "Sports are the need of the hour for the Kashmiri youth. I have so many youngsters calling me up and seeking guidance. And, I always encourage them to brave all odds and maintain their self-belief. Our state has so much talent across sports, but the lack of facilities and training centres hasn't helped their cause. I would really urge the concerned authorities to take notice of the talent from the Valley and nurture them with a prospect of making the country proud," Saqlain signs off. Coming from a region where people have a hard time focussing on their lives, Saqlain didn't just survive, but he concentrated on the very thing that acted as an escape route from all the hardships - his love for volleyball. From living in fear to becoming the first spiker from his state to represent India in any age group, Saqlain, at a tender age, has become a beacon of hope and is the perfect embodiment of success derived against all odds, on the back of persistent hard work.
  24. “Ye Wasseypur hai, yahan kabootar bhi ek pankh se udta hai, aur dusre se apni ijjat bachata hai.” A true blue Pankaj Tripathi fan would be able to tell exactly where, when and who said this. If you happen to be one of them, we deem you as one too - a Pankaj Tripathi fan. One, who may or may not have seen and appreciated this method artist's talents before 'Gangs of Wasseypur' became a stellar, commercial success, and Pankaj received the praise and recognition that he had duly earned. Today, 'Mirzapur' is touching new heights riding on his shoulders. Viewers have been left in awe of Kaleen Bhaiya, who instills terror in people's hearts by simply sitting on his chair, hardly saying much. But that is one of Pankaj's idiosyncrasies which seems to have done wonders for him - his ability to go beyond the written character and adding his personal touches to them, making each of Pankaj's performances brilliant. © Instagram But Pankaj Tripathi's journey to such critical acclaims and the popularity that followed comes sprinkled with many highs and lows. That makes his story worthy to be told - yet remains one that hasn't been shared enough. When Pankaj started out, his means were limited, but his dreams soared sky-high. Very early on in his life, he had set his heart on doing things differently. Of leading a life on his own terms, and not giving in to expectations written in stone. A native of a small village in Bihar, called Belsand, Pankaj grew up in a place that is beginning to reap the goodness of civilisation just now. He spent his initial years enjoying the simple pleasures of life. Born into a farmer's family, his early years were spent in the lap of nature. Pankaj appreciated the plain joys that life had to offer, such as swimming in the pond behind his house or running through the fields with his mates. © Instagram Given such a humble start to his life, we suppose you are wondering how the bug to act bit him? Well, by his own admission, Pankaj used to act in local plays in his village where he would portray the role of girls. The audience would love his performances, which eventually prompted Pankaj to take up acting. When Pankaj moved to Patna for his higher studies, he came across the charm of theatre, and would soon cycle the length and breadth of the state to attend as many stage plays as he could between 1994 and 1995. Finally in 1996, he started doing theatre, along with a night job in a hotel. That went on for two years, before he decided to get serious acting lessons. © Instagram Coming from a family of limited means meant that he would have to look for a place that could teach him for free. He learnt that National School of Drama in Delhi was one such place, but their admission requirement calls for a graduation degree. That's how the then 12th pass Pankaj got himself enrolled in a BA degree in Hindi literature. Post graduating, he found himself in NSD and graduated from the acting school in 2004. On October 16th he found himself in the city of dreams Mumbai, with his life-savings of Rs 45,000. But as life would have it, by December 25th, he had only Rs. 10 left in his pocket. Life was hard, and challenges crept up at every turn. But Pankaj was not the one to give up. © Instagram He kept auditioning, kept facing rejections for over a decade, kept honing his skills with every project he landed and ended up bagging a few small roles here and there. But eventually his time came with gangster-drama 'Gangs of Wasseypur' in 2012, for which Pankaj received a lot of critical appreciation from the audience and critics alike. He had finally made it. His credibility spiked through the roof and bigger projects kept knocking at his door incessantly. What followed next was 'Fukrey' (2013), 'Masaan' (2015), 'Nil Battey Sannata' (2016), 'Bareilly Ki Barfi' (2017), 'Newton' (2017), 'Fukrey Returns' (2017) and 'Stree'(2018). © Instagram But that is not all, Pankaj went on to earn a National Film Award – Special Mention for his performance in 'Newton'! Today, he has played a lead in 'Gurgaon' and also has multiple projects such as 'Kaagaz', 'Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai', and 'Luka Chhupi' in the pipeline, besides various other projects. Pankaj follows a simple philosophy in his life, “yaadgaar to mai apne kaam se hounga”. That is what this fine actors eats and breaths - a wish to entertain his audience, who go back home with a smile on their faces at the end of the day. His charming personality, his connection to his roots and the pride with which he wears it, makes him so much more relatable and lovable. © Instagram Yes, I say lovable because you cannot look past this man's standing wit and humour. His passion for acting and entertaining his audience is palpable, and he manages to take you with him to places, you didn't imagine was possible to visit sitting on the other side of the screen. He appreciates the art of movie making, something he hails as an organic process, wherein hundreds of people put in their heart and soul to rear a piece into existence. His honesty, hard work and sincerity have finally found a home in people's heart, who simply cannot get enough of this man!
  25. If I look back, it was during my boarding school days when fitness first happened to me. Thanks to the ethos of the school, we were equally pressed to be physically fit as we were to be good at academics. From doing push-ups, pull-ups, sprints to yoga, I almost started learning everything about fitness right from my boarding school days. Days Of Being Skinny Though I loved being an outdoorsman, I was still pretty skinny. The craze of building a good physique started when I was in 10th standard, as I used to do pull-ups every day on an old iron bar running across our dormitory. This was followed by 50-100 push-ups. After doing this for months on end, I noticed an impressive difference in my biceps, chest and the back. I was hooked! Since the food served at the hostel kitchen massively lacked protein, I was still skinny and stuck at 45 kilos. The Bullying Motivated Me! Since I was a skinny little fellow, my classmates made it sure to take my case. I was called names, picked up and thrown around and pushed around throughout the day. On the face of it, I acted cool. Deep inside, this bullying added the fuel to my fire to getting jacked. Hostel Food Growing up in a hostel, food was a major issue. I needed more food to put on weight but never actually got enough. Luckily though, by the time I entered 12th standard, I had managed to put on 5 kilos of weight and graduated proudly out of school. Stepping Into A Real Gym I got admission in Bangalore for my higher studies and it was there where I first saw a real gym. The bodybuilders there astonished me and I was hooked onto the dream. I immediately took the membership and started working out the very next day. The Nutrition Confusion So, now I had access to machines, but what I didn't have was the knowledge about the right nutrition. I kept eating whatever I got and performed exercises with poor form. Back in the day, there was no YouTube or Facebook to look at and learn things, so I did what I could pick up from the bigger guys in the gym. Despite going to the gym everyday, I saw no legitimate results. The bigger guys suggested me to get on steroids and tutored me to believe that only steroids can get me bigger. Luckily, I didn't go ahead as I was aware of the adverse effects of anabolics. Then I joined a group on FB that promoted the keto diet like a religion. I gave the diet a try and was left in a miserable condition. I lost fat and along with that whatever little lean muscle I had. Soon after, I stopped doing that and also stopped following the group. Reading The Right Things I then joined a really credible FB group and started reading nutrition research papers, instead of following 'bro-science' experts. Whatever good info I came about, I applied that in my training and nutrition. The rest is rock and roll history. Slowly and steadily, I got into fitness professionally. After realizing that natural bodybuilding is a joke because of untested competitions, my interest shifted towards Powerlifting, which was a turning point in my life. Since then, I have competed in 2 powerlifting meets. Presently, I am also doing a training course by GetSetGo Fitness to take my career further ahead in the fitness industry.
