  1. We're only six months into the year, but 2020 has already been quite an eventful year. From a possible World War 3 to a full-blown pandemic, we've seen it all. While we're still struggling to get out of a pandemic, it looks like there's already a new disease coming out of China. According to a new report, a city in Northern China sounded an alert after a suspected case of bubonic plague was reported. A level 3 warning of plague prevention and control came out of Bayannur, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The suspected case was reported by a hospital in Bayannur. © Reuters The warning period will apparently continue until the end of 2020. The local health authority has confirmed the case and said there's a risk of a human plague epidemic spreading in the city. This, by the way, wasn't the first suspected case of this newly reported plague. Earlier this month, two other adults were found to be affected. They both are brothers and they're being tested at two separate hospitals. The brother reportedly ate marmot meat. Marmot, for those of you who don't know, is a type of rodent. A total of 146 people, who they've been in contact with, have been isolated and are being treated at local hospitals. Bubonic plague is a bacterial disease that is spread by flies living on wild rodents such as marmots. It can kill an adult in less than 24 hours if not treated in time. Last year, a couple died in the western Mongolian province of Bayan-Ulgii after eating raw marmot meat. The researchers are now concerned about further mutation so that they can transfer from person to person. That's probably the worst thing that can happen while we're already battling a full-blown pandemic. People are obviously not happy about this whole situation that we're in. Here are some Twitter responses to this news about the new disease. No! I beg for mercy. I canât cope with any more such news... https://t.co/3CtrIrAVII â anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) July 5, 2020 True that Itne virus hum biology class me na padhe honge jitne ye log iss saal invent kar chuke he ð¤£ð¤£ â Appu (@Appu_Jr1) July 5, 2020 We wish everything happening in 2020 was 'Fake News' Please tell me it's fake news. â Asha (@iamAshaLatha) July 5, 2020 Let's not step out of the house only. @PMOIndia seal boarders till end of 2020 . â SVDragnov (@SDragnov) July 5, 2020 We really hope we're not looking at a serious disease here. Between COVID-19 and everything else happening in 2020, we really can't afford to have another crisis situation. Source: TOI View the full article
  2. From being portrayed as perennial macho men with a penchant for saving damsels to showing their vulnerable side and being open to emotions, Bollywood's portrayal of male characters has sure come a long way. Back in the early 80s, men were shown as larger-than-life characters with the focus mostly on this burning rage that they carried within them all the time. The concepts of 'ladke rote nahi hai' and 'mard ko dard nahi hota' were pretty much a constant back in the day for Indian cinema but now, things have changed drastically as male characters are challenging stereotypes. Here are 7 brilliant male characters that we have seen in Bollywood movies, who opened the dialogue around the notion that men are not just about being 'strong', 'tough', 'angry' and 'manly': 1. Shahid Kapoor As Aditya Kashyap - Jab We Met © T-Series Aditya Kashyap in Jab We Met is a very beautifully written character and anyone who has seen the movie can attest to that. Here we have a man who wants to create a safe environment for a woman, a complete stranger, who's travelling with him. He is humble, poised, and someone who thinks about others before himself. He makes sure that Geet is comfortable in the journey with him, showing the audience that men can be trusted and are not just mere stalkers, whose goal is to simply chase down the woman, irrespective of her wishes. "Haan, main tujhe bahut pasand karta hoon par woh mera problem hai. Tujhe tension lene ki koi zaroorat nahin. (Yes, I love you but thatâs my problem. You don't have to worry about it)," this dialogue by him just goes on to show the depths of his personality. 2. Vikrant Massey As Amol - Chhapaak © FoxStarHindi When you fall for someone, one of the first things to strike is looks and beauty. But, Amol in Chhapaak is here to show you a different side of men who believe that love is not just about falling for looks alone and that the person on the inside also matters. Amol falls for Malti's courage, ethics, and how she deals with all her sorrows. That in itself is what makes her beautiful to him, even though her face was left disfigured from the acid attack. 3. Shah Rukh Khan As Kabir Khan - Chak De! India © YRF Kabir Khan is one of the very few male characters, who is a feminist, that we have seen on the big screen. He coaches a team of female national hockey players and does not go easy on them just because they are women, as it should be. Khan sees them as hockey players, not as women, making it clear right from the start that gender does not matter to him when it comes to doing his job. However, he is also someone who does not hold back from reminding the girls from time to time how strong they are as women. True feminism. 4. Manav Kaul As Ashok Dube- Tumhari Sullu © T-Series Ashok Dube, another well-crafted character, shows how a man, in a household, is capable of making drastic changes to his life and give the reins over to his better half, if need be. His wife takes on a job of being an RJ at night who hosts a live show and talks to people, especially men, who get addicted to her voice. She slowly starts earning way more than Ashok and this, somehow, affects him. But he does not let himself be consumed by the negative feelings and becomes supportive of his wife and her venture. Well, this is a beautiful transition of roles that we should celebrate. 5. Ayushmann Khurrana As Kartik Singh - Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan © T-Series A lot has already been talked about this particular project on how it challenged the stereotypes surrounding the LGBTQ community in our country. Kartik is a character who is a breath of fresh air when it comes to the portrayal of gay men in Bollywood. He shows how being gay does not necessarily make one 'girly' or 'feminine', something a lot of people still think to this day, and that they are regular people who just want what other couples want- acceptance and acknowledgement. 6. Arjun Kapoor As Kabir Kamlesh Bansal - Ki And Ka © Eros Now When the movie released in 2016, people couldn't stop raving about Arjun's progressive character, a man who aspires to be a house husband. For years, we have seen movies with women taking command of the kitchen and running the house, but here we have Kabir who has no qualms in doing the household chores and letting his wife earn. 7. Amitabh Bachchan As Bhashkor Banerjee - Piku © Sony Entertainment Pictures Our dads may sure be liberal but we cannot, in no way, indulge in a conversation about our virginity with them. And then there is Bhashkor, who is changing that notion as he doesn't shy away in accepting, publically, that his daughter Piku is sexually active and he has no issues with that. These characters make us want to celebrate men in a very different way and we are glad that Bollywood is evolving towards a progressive direction through these brilliant characters.

  3. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives in more ways than one. Even after months of lockdown, the virus is still lurking around in the various parts of the world, making it hard for us to get back to our day-to-day lives. But it looks like we finally have some good news. According to a new report, it looks like India's first indigenous COVID-19 could be ready for public use by August 15. The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has asked medical institutions and hospitals to expedite clinical trials for the vaccine. © Reuters If everything goes to the plan, then it looks like the vaccine will be made available to the public by August 15 2020. Here's everything that you need to know: Joining Hands With BBIL ICMR has partnered with Bharat Biotech International Limited (BBIL) for the clinical trials of this indigenous vaccine 'Covaxin' for the coronavirus disease. A total of 12 institutes have been selected for the clinical trial. Trial Locations © Reuters These institutes are located in Visakhapatnam, Rohtak, New Delhi, Patna, Belgaum (Karnataka), Nagpur, Gorakhpur, Kattankulathur (Tamil Nadu), Hyderabad, Arya Nagar, Kanpur (Uttar Pradesh), Goa, and Bhubaneswar-based Institute of Medical Sciences and SUM Hospital. Top Priority Right Now ICMR Director-General Dr Balram Bhargava noted that this is one of the "top priority projects which is being monitored at the top-most level of the government". The vaccine was developed and manufactured in Bharat Biotech's facility located in Genome Valley in Hyderabad. Another Vaccine In Development © Reuters Meanwhile, another candidate is also being developed Ahmedabad-based Zydus Cadila Healthcare. It's also considered to be a potential vaccine candidate, however, we don't have much about it just yet. The First Vaccine To Receive Approval The 'Covaxin' has become the first candidate developed in India to receive the Drug Controller General of India's approval to enter human trials.

  5. Besides billionaire industrialists and celebs, there are Indian royal families whose 'live life king size' opulence can't help but make us all feel a teensy bit jealous, and broke.

Here's a list of royal families of India and the riches they have. 1. The Mewar Dynasty © Twitter/WadiyarDynasty After the death of the last heir of Mysore, Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar, The Wadiyar dynasty adopted another son named Yaduveer Gopal Raj Urs who became the monarch of the royal family.

Recently, the king married the Princess of Dungarpur and it is said that the dynasty has properties, lands and assets which are worth Rs 10,000 Crore, Yes, let that sink in. 3.

The affluent family ruled for a very long time and Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, the last head of Pataudi then married Sharmila Tagore. Mansoor Ali Khan was also the captain of India's cricket team. The couple had three children and right now, Saif Ali Khan reigns and serves as the king of this palace. It is said that the Pataudi Palace, situated in Haryana is worth Rs 800 Crores.

The Royal Family Of Jaipur © Leisure India The Royal Family of Jaipur saw Bhawani Singh as their last king.

  6. If you have upgraded your phone recently and still have your previous phone lying around somewhere, then instead of selling it at a cheap price, you can always use it for alternative purposes. Smartphones are extremely versatile and can be used for so many things at home that you probably donât realise or donât know how to do it. Here are some things you can do with your old smartphone instead of wasting its potential. 1. Dedicated Webcam © Youtube/BoxDesire Ever since the pandemic hit the world, every meeting has now switched over to video calls and in case you donât have a decent webcam, you can use your old smartphone to fill that void. You can plug in the phone with your laptop and use a third-party app that will enable the camera to be used as a webcam. You can even use the smartphone as a face cam for streaming games on popular websites like YouTube and Twitch. 2. A Dedicated Gaming Device © Razer If you love to play games on your phone you can easily convert your smartphone to a portable gaming device by getting a Bluetooth controller for the phone. You can emulate old games like Mario on the phone or even use the phone to play your favourite battle-royale game. You can even play hundreds of offline games on the phone and not get distracted with notifications. 3. TV Remote © Youtube/My mate Vince Many phones come with an IR blaster or use WiFi to communicate and control Smart TVs today. Most TVs now come with a companion app that can be installed on your phone to control the TV, provided you are on the same WiFi network. If your phone has an IR blaster, you can even use it like a traditional remote without having to worry about getting new batteries. 4. MP3 player © Unsplash/william-iven Every smartphone can now play music either via streaming or by accessing local files on your microSD card. Instead of buying a dedicated MP3 player or an iPod, use your old phone to serve your music listening needs. Some phones even have support for Quad-DAC and aptX HD support for a better audio experience. 5. E-Book Reader © Unsplash/efren-barahona Donât want to invest money in a Kindle? Thatâs perfectly fine as you can read plenty of E-Books on your phone without spending a rupee. There are plenty of e-book reading apps that will let you read almost every format possible. You will have to find your own E-books though or buy books from the official Kindle App. Many phones today have a dedicated reading mode that puts less strain on the eyes and is more comfortable for users who like read on digital screens.

  7. We are functioned to only think of Kartik Aaryan when we talk about monologues because let us say, we are fed this way. Whenever anyone asks us about the monologue that we fondly remember, in a fraction of a second, is that of Kartikâs monologue from Pyaar Ka Punchnama. His five-minute-long monologue, a rant against girlfriends is what made him a household home. Hereâs a snippet of the âfamousâ monologue for you: âProblem yeh hai ki woh ladki hai, Aur kya problem hai, Problem yeh hai ki main chahta hoon ki meri life mein koi problem hi naa ho, Lekin agar meri life mein koi problem naa ho toh yeh uski life ki sabse badi problem hai!â But, the style of delivering a perfect monologue is not just limited to Kartik as many other Bollywood celebs have also mastered the art of saying the perfect monologues. Letâs take a look at the celebs who also deserve the crown of monologue kings and did a great job long before Kartikâs rant got famous: 1. Shah Rukh KhanIf you have seen Chak De India, you must have got goose bumps when Kabir Khan gave his iconic âSatar minute' speech. âSattar minute hai tumhaare paas...shaayad tumhaare zindagi ke sabse khaas sattar minute,â this whole monologue must have filled you with inspiration. It became an iconic piece of monologue that never fails to energize us whenever we hear it. And in fact, SRK as Aman from Kal Ho Naa Ho took all the attention when he read out from Rohitâs blank diary. He spoke the whole dialogue in just one go and even made us shed our tears. 2. Shahid KapoorHaider undoubtedly, is one of the best performances given by Shahid Kapoor and he truly deserves the crown as his monologue from the film will rip you apart. The monologue shows Shahid's character highlighting Article 2 of the Geneva Convention as well as Article 370 (now-revoked). Just to add, itâs a six-page monologue. Through his powerful dialogue delivery, Shahid has also brought back the use of the word âchutzpahâ. 3. Amitabh BachchanBig Bâs monologue from the film Pink âNo Means Noâ is one landmark speech as it talked about the consent and it touched the hearts of the audience. These views are often mouthed by womenâs rights activists and feminist liberals but here thereâs a man whoâs explaining the concept of consent. 4. Naseeruddin ShahNaseeruddinâs moving speech about the plight of innocent common Indian citizens who die every day in trains, they get attacked by the government, and the monologue mouthed by Shah is still very impacting. 5. Sunny DeolA monologue from the 90s film starring Sunny Deol can never be forgotten as itâs written in the pages of history. The 'Tarik Par Tarik' dialogue was a big hit back then and is still an instant hit. So Kartik, you are not alone in the race! View the full article
  8. A couple of weeks ago, Indian gamer and noted YouTuber, CarryMinati (Ajey Nagar) decided to start the biggest e-war in the country, when he planned the roast of TikToker Amir Siddiqui in a video titled âYouTube Vs Tiktok - The Endâ. The issue about professionals of which particular online video platforms make better content resided with people from every corner of the country, so much so, that CarryMinati's roast quickly became the most liked non-music video ever on YouTube India. The YouTuberâs diehard fans and followers even went the extra mile to make fake accounts only to give bad reviews and low ratings to TikTok on Googleâs Play Store and Appleâs App Store. When you create 100 fake accounts to bring down TikTok rating: pic.twitter.com/6vXZquvpub â SHREY JAIN (@simply_lame_) May 21, 2020 On the other hand, TikTok followers reported CarryMinatiâs videos in large numbers, forcing YouTube, the company to remove the video under the charges violating its ' terms of service'. And just when everything seemed to be calming down a bit, Indian comedian Kunal Kamra became a part of the trend and roasted the gamer in his own way. In a video titled âAaja Beta Carry Teko Roast Sikhaye!â Kamra mostly talks about how most of the jokes CarryMinati makes has him abusing the other guys and how itâs not comedy, eventually giving him a couple of lessons on how to be funny. For Kamra to suddenly get involved in something like this took a lot of people by surprise and many even thought that this was a way for him to gain popularity and publicity for âgiving itâ to CarryMinatiâs work, which is the hottest topic of discussion on Indian internet right now. Unfortunately for Kamra, the plan backfired as a large sum of people who saw his version of what comedy truly is, didnât find it funny. The video, which currently has approximately six million views, also has one and a half-million dislikes, most of which came his way in just a day. NEW: Indian comedian Kunal Kamra's new video is on the way to become one of the most disliked videos in YouTube history. pic.twitter.com/CykooDTBSN â Norbert Elekes (@NorbertElekes) May 30, 2020 Very aware of how things were going for his ever since the video, Kamra decided to take a shot at the fans of Nagar, from his Twitter account: I think the best case future for Carry fans is joining the BJP IT Cell... â Kunal Kamra (@kunalkamra88) May 30, 2020 âI think the best case future for Carry fans is joining the BJP IT Cell,â he tweeted as his video raced towards the âone million dislikesâ mark. A lot of Kunal Kamraâs jokes throughout his career have been about Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Bharatiya Janata Party and how they have been running the Indian government recently, which also garner polarising responses. While viewers have been actively participating in the discussion and taking sides between Nagar and Kamra for the past day and a half, the latter has been AWOL from Twitter since releasing a teaser for his next project, YALGAAR. YALGAAR.... COMING SOONhttps://t.co/hbFt2ScLH5 â Ajey Nagar (@CarryMinati) May 24, 2020 Are you team CarryMinati or Team Kamra? Let us know in the comments section. View the full article
  9. 10-year-old Lyza Brooks Mosie from Georgia, United States has become a fitness sensation all over the world because of her dedication towards becoming the best gymnast that she can. According to Lad Bible, the young athlete got in touch with gymnastics at the tender age of four and completely âfell in loveâ with it. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@lyzabrooks) Now, not only does she want to master her craft but is also training like an absolute beast to meet her goals. Lyzaâs mother Jill Mosier opened up about her work ethic and it is nothing short of inspirational. "She stays on top of her game by getting up at 5.30 am to train - we have set up all sorts of gymnastics stations in our storage room where she would go for hours to workout,â she says. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@lyzabrooks) According to her mom, Lyza trains five days a week for over 30 hours and is willing to do whatever it takes to make herself better, and the best part is that she enjoys it. "She fell in love with working out when she started coming to my fitness classes last summer and she has drastically improved in such a short amount of time. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@lyzabrooks) "She aims to be the best gymnast she can possibly be, nothing will get in her way." Having said that, many have criticised the family for putting too much pressure on Lyza, who, at the end of the day, is just a 10-year-old, but thatâs the beauty of the apprentice, she is self-motivated and nobody asks her to spend so much time at the gym. She is does it on her own. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@lyzabrooks)"She loves hearing that she inspires others, however, we also get the occasional mean person as well who say we shouldn't make her train so much,â Jill adds. "But I assure you, we have nothing to do with this - I have four kids and Lyza begs to workout. Going through the young starâs YouTube channel, her dedication towards getting fitter by the day can be seen and is 100% genuine. Her posture while working out, the patience with which she holds her positions and the enthusiasm with which she continues to get back to the gym every single day are just a few characteristics most of us have failed to imbibe even today and can take a lesson or two from Lyzaâs book. Confident and in full support of her daughterâs dream, Jill also said: "I am so proud of her and I can't wait for her to achieve her dreams and become an elite gymnast." View the full article
  10. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is not an actor but a complete work of art in himself. He can play the role of a gangster, lover, a cop, and almost everything else for that matter. Call him Bollywoodâs chameleon if you must, because he can fit himself into any character and make it look as real as possible. Donât let his âseriousâ face fool you though, because he has the perfect comic timing as well that can tickle your funny bone and leave you rolling on the floor laughing. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@nawazuddin._siddiqui)In an interview with NDTV, revealing that he performed in about a hundred comedy plays, back in the day in Delhi, Nawaz shared that he has a great sense of comic timing but is always offered serious roles because of his facial features. Well, we do agree with the fact that he has an impeccable sense of humour and has a unique way of pulling off a comic scene in a movie, despite coming across as a stern individual. In another interview, he said, âI enjoy comedies because you donât have to think or stress too much in these films like I have to do for my serious roles.â Despite having the image of an actor who outshines the rest in serious roles, Nawazuddin Siddiqui can certainly pull off comic scenes effortlessly as well, and we have dug 5 such scenes that will make you see our point: 1. Chand Nawab In Bajrangi Bhaijaan Well, Nawazuddin had many crucial scenes in the movie that displayed his comic avatar but the scene wherein he is struggling to film his piece-to-camera as people keep interrupting him, is probably the funniest part. You wonât be able to contain your laughter after seeing him impersonate the real reporter from Pakistan. 2. Ali In Freaky Ali Though the film tanked at the box office, Nawazuddin garnered praise from the audience for his comic timing. Not just one, there are many rib-tickling scenes in the movie. Let me tell you about one hilarious scene, in particular, where he is seen selling chaddis and he mocks a kid whoâs dressed as superman. Actually, you can absolutely watch the movie and let him surprise you with his perfect comic timing. 3. Faizal Khan In Gangs Of Wasseypur If you have seen the movie, you cannot forget the scene wherein Nawaz keeps his hand on Huma Qureshi's hand without permission. This scene has a separate fan base altogether. In fact, throughout the movie, he keeps asking for Humaâs permission, be it for *** or a movie date. Itâs a sheer delight to see him pull off these scenes with an almost blank expression on his face and still manage to make you howl with laughter. 4. Shiv Gajra In Kick Infusing comedy into a serious scene is pure art and Nawaz knows how to nail it. In one of the scenes from Kick, he fakes his death and then comes the crazy sequence that canât be explained in words. Itâs better for you to see for yourself and then appreciate Nawaz for his brilliance in acting. Let me give you a hint: Maut Ko Chhu Ke Tak Se Wapas Aa Sakta Hoon. 5. Liak In Badlapur Yes, itâs a serious movie but Nawaz added that humour element which took things to the next level. In one of the scenes, he is in prison but still thinking of *** with his girlfriend. The way he pulls off the scene wherein he is conversing with her is an absolute masterpiece. If you watch the movie, you will find a string of punchlines that will make you believe in his argument that he has great comic timing. Nawazuddin, a man of your calibre should not be boxed to one type of role. Here is hoping you get all the comedy roles your heart desires. View the full article
  11. The Ironman Triathlon is one of the hardest athletic and endurance competitive events that is organised anywhere in the world. It is a one-day event that consists of almost 4 kilometres of swimming, 180 kilometres of Tour de France style bicycling, where you cannot stop peddling even for a second, and finally a 42 kilometre run to the finish line. Of course, all off this has to be completed within a set time. © Ironman Triathlon Now imagine completing something this arduous, and finishing in a rather impressive manner, and posting one of the most commendable times at such an event, once youâre over the age of 50. Seems impossible? Well, not if youâre Milind Soman. View this post on InstagramYesterday was #workoutwednesday so I tried 10 clap pushups ð fun!!! Finding small challenges every week keeps me interested and motivated to be active. That's all I need. . . . What's your small challenge ??? ððð#keepmoving . . . #BeBetterEveryday #fitnesslife #pushups #challenge #Live2InspireA post shared by (@milindrunning) If you follow Milind on any social media platform, you must have noticed, that he often goes on his runs, without any footwear. Itâs almost as if he has a disdain for any and every sort of equipment. âWell, that is partially true. I just donât like anything weighing me down. I try to remove anything that becomes an unnecessary complication. So yes, I prefer running just my shorts, and sometimes, my sunglasses. If I am running at night, I will wear a pair of slippers, just keep my feet protected.â © Instagram/milindrunning In this day and age, we believe it is actually quite impractical to think about fitness without any gym equipment, or some sort of basic equipment if one is to stay fit. Milind however, would disagree. âSee, you really donât need any of those fancy equipment. Yes, you need to exercise, and running, or jogging or doing anything in the open is the best way to go about it. To stay fit, what you really need to focus on, is what you eat. Having a balanced diet is fine, but are you paying attention to the micronutrients and everything else? Ask yourself,â says Milind. © Instagram/milindrunning We finally asked him how he prepared himself for the Ironman challenge. With a chuckle, Milind responded saying, âPeople today have forgotten what the normal human body is capable of, and actually get surprised when someone does something like that. No matter what the challenge, marathon, triathlon, or endurance event one is planning to go for, the first step is always to set your mind right and believe that not only is that thing achievable, but something that is very normal and achievable, and that of course, you can do it.â This, he says, is half the battle won. © Instagram/milindrunning With that being said, you need to take the next step equally importantly and start preparing yourself accordingly. This includes fixing up your diet, strengthening your core and also allowing your body to rest. But coming over the mental obstacle, says Miind, is the biggest challenge.

  12. Remember the HTC Exodus 1S smartphone? Yes, the entry-level blockchain phone from HTC that we asked you to stay away from? Well, the phone is back in the news again. It looks like the phone is capable of turning into a money-making machine, thanks to a cryptocurrency mining app. Yes, the phone is said to be getting an app called DeMiner that will be able to mine cryptocurrency when the phone is plugged in and idle. The app is being developed by Midas Labs and is scheduled to launch every soon. © HTC If you're good at math, then you may have figured out that at that rate, you'll be looking at just over a dollar a year i.e. $1.38 a year. That's like making roughly Rs 100 a year, which means the phone can't even make enough cryptocurrency in over 100 years to pay for its price. And on top of that, you're looking at additional expenses like electricity costs and more. Even if you're planning to buy it to use a phone that can also mine cryptocurrency while it's charging, we still think it's a bad idea. It's definitely not worth the asking price and it's probably not going to last long enough with those basic entry-level specs. This is just to tell you how bad the phone really is and we're yet to have seen anything useful from the folks over at HTC. Source: TheVerge View the full article

  15. Mahindra Group Chief Anand Mahindra proves regularly that he is constantly on the lookout for fresh and innovative talent across the nation. He calls a spade a spade and doesnât think twice before appreciating any good initiative, regardless of where it has come from. On Friday, he took to his Twitter account to share a post about a battery-run e-rickshaw that has been compartmentalised by its owner so that the passengers do not come in direct contact with each other. This was done keeping in mind the social distancing rules amid the Coronavirus pandemic. Mahindra shared the video and wrote, âThe capabilities of our people to rapidly innovate and adapt to new circumstances never ceases to amaze me.â The capabilities of our people to rapidly innovate & adapt to new circumstances never ceases to amaze me. @rajesh664 we need to get him as an advisor to our R&D & product development teams! pic.twitter.com/ssFZUyvMr9 â anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) April 24, 2020 The video shows an e-rickshaw which has been divided into four chambers for the passengers. The driver's seat is also separated from the passenger area by a solid partition, so that no one comes in contact with the driver. That's jugaad level 101! This well-thought-out initiative was immediately lauded by the Mahindra Group Chief to an extent where he also tagged Rajesh Jejurikar, the Executive Director of Mahindra & Mahindra's Auto and Farm Sectors, and wrote, "We need to get him as an advisor to our R&D & product development teams!" People on social media immediately pointed out how swift his decision was and appreciated his gesture and wrote: Sir, this country needs more people like you who take decisions immediately. â learnntrade (@learnntrade1) April 24, 2020Jaisi samasya waisa samadhan. â ATK (@AmiKhairwar) April 24, 2020Thats almost a "Quarantine Tuk-Tuk"!!Brilliant!! â NIRANJANA CHELUR (@MAXCHELUR) April 24, 2020à¤à¤¸à¥ हॠभारत वरà¥à¤· à¤à¥ विशà¥à¤µ à¤à¥à¤°à¥ नहॠà¤à¤¹à¤¤à¥ सर । â Anshuman Singhð®ð³ð®ð³ (@ansh01a) April 24, 2020Not everything happens in the AC rooms...

  16. We are always so eager to jump the âtrendingâ bandwagon, arenât we? Right from fashion trends to 'Dalgona' coffee and silly TikTok challenges, we end up giving in to most hashtags that rule our highly âPublicâ social (media) life. © Pexels So, let me introduce you to yet another âtrendâ which has been trending for a few years now. #Sustainability. #SustainableLiving. #SustainableLifestyle. No matter what you wish to call it, itâs all the same and equally promising! Itâs hip and much more worthy of your time. Not only will it make you seem âwokeâ and responsible, it comes with the added benefits of improving the quality of your life as well as that of the Earth, all at once. So, here are 10 small but effective lifestyle changes that you can make to help the environment and the Earth live better, plus also become very âtrendyâ: 1. Say No To Single-Use Plastic © Pexels I know youâve heard enough of this, but trust me when I say it, every time you say no to that plastic straw, plastic cutlery, plastic food packaging, carry bags and a host of other things made out of/covered in single-use plastic, you are not only helping the environment but also saving lives which end up as collateral damage because we love plastic so much in our life. 2. Carry Reusable Water-Bottles © Pexels The idea is to have a bottle of water handy while on the go, and avoid the need to buy plastic cups and water bottles when you are struck by intense thirst while on the road. Use and throw cups and bottles not only impact the environment negatively, but also send your health for a toss by injecting toxins into your body. Opt for glass or metal-based (ideally steel or copper) water bottles to carry with you at all times. 3. Practise Basic Recycling © Pexels I do not need to tell you why recycling is supremely crucial for Earthâs future, now more than ever. Junior school taught us enough about it, but growing up we forgot the basics. So, here goes. Recycling reduces the generation of avoidable waste, helps conserve Earthâs resources, reduces pollution and saves a ton of energy! By simply recycling this around us, we can heal the Earth! 4. Bring A Personal Carry Bag © Pexels Letâs bring the âjholaâ back in fashion, shall we? Be it a cotton or khadi-based cloth bag, or a jute bag, just ensure you take your own carry bag with you when you go shopping. Be it for veggies, groceries or even clothes. Itâll also save you a lot of money! 5. Shop Locally © Pexels What this means is, instead of heading to the supermarket, buy stuff from the local sabziwala, doodhwala, or head to the nearest farmerâs market or mandi where you can get fresh, quality produce and pay much less than how much you would at a shopping mart. Itâs good for the environment, your health and also for some hard-working people trying to earn an honest living. 6. Opt For Preloved Things © Pexels Many of you may not agree with this, but so much goodness often lies hidden in preloved items. This is true especially if youâre looking at decorating items, antiques, furniture, books and even electronics! Second-hand items are not only less expensive, but also conserve resources, energy and prevent pollution too! 7. Travel Responsibly © Pexels Again, something we are all aware of, but not actively participating in. Donât wait for Kejriwal to come back with his Odd-Even Rule to get back to carpooling and taking the public transport. Do it otherwise and regularly too. Walk where you can, cycle where you canât and try to reduce the number of times you take out your car and fly someplace as much as you can. Fuel has a significant carbon footprint, which in turn hurts the environment. 8. Avoid Fast Fashion, Go Indigenous © Pexels Changing clothes like changing trends is no longer a healthy practice. From chemical waste production to wastage of water and energy, fast fashion is one of the biggest polluters after the oil industry. Instead, choose indigenous brands and craftsmanship. Wear natural fabrics like cotton, silk, khadi and donate unwanted clothes instead of just throwing them away. 9. Save & Harvest Water © Pexels This is pivotal to any sort of future that we are trying to build on Earth. Water is a basic necessity of life but also one of the most important factors that make life sustainable on this planet. So, save water, avoid thoughtless wastage of this life-giving liquid and harvest water if you can. 10. Use Energy Responsibly © Pexels Wastage of energy is another factor that handicaps measures for sustainable living. Avoid unnecessary use of electricity. Make use of natural light, opt for LED bulbs instead of CFL. Switch off that light before you leave a room. There is so much you can do really. View the full article
  17. Elon Musk is the most unusual billionaire, and we don't even know what he'll do, because it's always the unexpected. Along with being the genius owner of Tesla and SpaceX, he's also basically a troll on Twitter at this point. Just going through his tweets sometimes makes me question, "how high is this guy right now?" And well, I of course picture this iconic moment. © Twitter Now, we all know that Tesla's latest exciting offering is the Cybertruck, which looks like something we all drew as a kid, and it's so weird that it's actually cool. People have already pre-booked this unique looking car/truck/whatever and Elon himself has been driving the prototype around LA for months, increasing the hype even more. Along with sharing 'dank memes', he also regularly answers questions by people about his various cars and this time he was discussing the Cybertruck with a few people and said that it can even float for a while. Yes. It will even float for a while. â Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 20, 2020 Again, the question stands - what the hell is he exactly making? We all live in a grey submarine? Cybertruck can float for a while. The first real submarine car from Tesla. https://t.co/yHkJ3CHGPq pic.twitter.com/Lj5Hey0Vfm â Legacy is f***ed (@tesla4k) April 20, 2020 We'll see.

  18. We wonder if there is anything that engineers canât pull off? From studying engineering for four years to pursuing a career in a creative field, youâll find them with the hidden talent to making a success out of anything they choose to do. © Unsplash Recently, The Madhya Pradesh police found an engineer living in a cave ever since the lockdown began on March 24. The man is a Mumbai resident and embarked on Narmada Parikrama which is a very popular pilgrimage in the area when he got stranded in a forest. Now the police has handed him over to his relatives. Virendra Singh Dogra was found living in a cave in the forest in Raisen district and he has been living there for over a month now. © BCCL The police found a few clothes and a copy of the Mahabharata with him and it couldnât get any more dramatic. The man was on a journey to Namada Parikrama but left it halfway as the journey involves walking around the Narmada River on foot from Amarkantak, Madhya Pradesh to the river mouth in Gujarat. © BCCL Virendra stopped at Kuandevri Village at the house of a relative when the lockdown began on March 22. Later, people spotted him living in a cave and reported the matter to the forest department and the police. Virendra explained to the police that he lives in Navi Mumbai and also told them that his sister lives in Hyderabad. Later, his sister corroborated the story to the police. Then the police sent him to his relative's house in Kuandevri village. © BCCL Now, thatâs a lot of drama and it sounds like a script from a very dramatic Bollywood movie that wouldnât impress the audience that much.

  19. The novel Coronavirus has created havoc across the globe and as much as we are missing going outside amid the lockdown, we all know that itâs necessary to stay at home now more than ever. The Police have been playing a paramount role in informing and educating the people about the importance of social distancing and staying indoors. © BCCL Recently, Mumbai Police took to its Twitter to disseminate the same message but in a very innovative way. They used the reference of the very popular multiplayer game- PUBG to drive the message home. Now, we all love playing it, donât we?

Also, at the moment, stepping out of home is nothing less than entering the red zone. The video has already gone viral and has captured around 30K views along with 2.3K likes on Twitter, so far.

  21. There is no dearth of high-profile love stories out there. We see enough of them from time to time. With their share of mushiness and PDA added to the mix, these often sell like hot cakes. Fans lap up every bit of these publicly-private moments with much enthusiasm, and never seem to get tired. But there is one power-couple thatâs been in a league of its own. Touted to be the âClassiest Hollywood Coupleâ, David and Victoria Beckhamâs love story is one for the books. The two started going out as Beck and Posh back in 1997, and have continued to stay in vogue throughout their 23 years together. © Twitter Today, the world swears by âbrandâ Beckham and hails the family of six as one perfect picture of love and togetherness. But âbrandâ Beckham had to survive its own share of rough waters before finding their calm, and both Victoria and David Beckham played their part to keep the ship afloat. Ever since they started dating, Victoria and David did some very ordinary things which turned them into a strong unit. Here are the 5 such filmy things Victoria and David Beckham did while dating that Indian couples will also relate to: 1. Posh & Beckham Kept Their Affair A Secret © Twitter Victoria Adams and David Beckham first met in 1997 at a charity football match. When sparks flew at âfirst sightâ, they exchanged numbers and secretly began dating each other. The world didnât find out about their relationship for months. Talking about that phase, David Beckham once told Hello magazine, "For the first three months it was amazing because no one found out about us being together.â 2. Victoria & Davidâs Very Own âDhadakâ Moment © Twitter When Victoria, then better known as Posh Spice, and Beckham first interacted at the Manchester United playersâ lounge bar during a charity football match, Beckham was not even a part of the first team yet. But Posh was famous. However, that didnât stop Beckham from seeking Posh Spice out and take her number. © Twitter Describing the events of that memorable evening, Victoria wrote a letter to herself in 2016 and said, âWhile the other football players stand at the bar drinking with their mates, you will see David standing aside with his family. (Heâs not even in the first team at this stageâyou are the famous one). Heâs going to ask for your number. (He still has the London-to-Manchester plane ticket on which you wrote it). And yes, love, at first sight does exist.â Now isnât that so much like Madhu and Parvathiâs love-story from Dhadak? 3. Beck & Posh Snuck Out For Dates © Twitter Keeping their relationship hush-hush wasnât the only desi thing David and Victoria did while dating. They also snuck out for dates, away from the mediaâs prying eyes, and spent much quiet time exclusively with each other. Calling it one of the best times of their relationship, Beckham said, "We loved that because we could sneak around. Our first kiss was in the car park of a restaurant. We used to drive to places and just spend as much time together as possible. That was an amazing time in our relationship." 4. David & Victoria Matched Their Outfits & More © Twitter This trend of matching outfits with our partner that many desi couples are known to be fans of, is a trademark of Victoria and David Beckham. David and Victoria would often be seen sporting similar designs and colours for public events, whether big or small. Whatâs more, the couple once also went for identical bleach-blond hair colour during the F1 Grand Prix of Great Britain in 2007. 5. David & Victoria Always âAppreciatedâ Each Other © Twitter Public boyfriend/girlfriend âappreciation postsâ on social media account in a very 2019 trend for couples, but Victoria and David Beckham were one of the very first ones to make it popular way back when social media didnât even exist. They did it by supporting each other in their respective careers and new endeavours, staying above rumours and openly expressing their love and gratitude towards one another on record. For instance when on the Today Show, Victoria said, âHe's my soulmate. He's the most incredible husband. We complement each other. He inspires me every day, with the children, with the way he treats me; it just works. We are lucky to have each other." © Twitter Or today when hours ago, David Beckham took to his Instagram account to wish Victoria Beckham a happy 46th birthday and said, âHappy birthday mama we love you so much and hope you have the most amazing day.â View this post on InstagramHappy birthday mama we love you so much and hope you have the most amazing day â¥ï¸â¥ï¸â¥ï¸â¥ï¸â¥ï¸ @brooklynbeckham @romeobeckham @cruzbeckham #HarperSeven ðA post shared by (@davidbeckham) Yes, they are a power couple, indeed. But at the end of the day, they are just two people in love surrounded by the family. View the full article
  22. The whole lockdown season is not just making us do house chores but it has also unveiled an unexplored side. Cooking is therapeutic, but since people are cooped inside their houses, with over the top workload, everyone is munching on unhealthy items, without realising the long term effect of all this. While it is okay to munch sometimes, it is not advisable that it becomes a habit. So, no matter how much workload you have at the moment, taking out five minutes from your schedule to cook a meal for yourself will not cost you much. Check out these amazing recipes that are filling and can be made easily, to deal with the lockdown better. 1.

Put the lemon juice and now mix all the veggies in it. 4. Sprinkle chat masala on top, with pepper and other seasoning. The dish is now ready! If you want to save more time, you can make this chat with roasted peanuts as well. 2. Quick Mayo Sandwich © Hungryforever A mayo sandwich sounds like a no-brainer, but what's special about this sandwich is that it can be made with various sauces with the veggies of your choice.

  23. The lockdown in the country has got people trying different things at home, especially experimenting with their looks. From haircuts to a trimming their beard, men and women are trying everything they can. Rajkummar Rao has taken it to some other level as he gave a haircut to his girlfriend Patralekhaa. Patralekhaa took to Instagram to share the video of Rajkummar using a trimmer to give her a perfect haircut and guess what, the result has been impressive. Trust me, I would have loved it if I was stuck with my boyfriend during the lockdown. Well, getting pampered by your man does please a woman. So, I am guessing men can take some lessons from the actor on how to keep pampering their girlfriends or wives.
