  1. Jason Momoa is not just admired for his choice of roles, his insane body and chiselled features, but also for the way he thinks about his family, cultural values and his expression of love for his wife and kids. The 'Game Of Thrones' actor celebrated Father's Day yesterday with his kids and unlike most people, his celebrations did not include going out for dinner or running for a swim but actually building a Harley-Davidson bike with his family heirlooms in the company of his kids. He spoke about how he grew up without a dad and therefore, being a wonderful parent to his kids was his top priority and the idea was to build something together which could be a memory they all share. “I'm a husband and a father and it is the greatest honour of my life. It has taken three decades in the making [to build the bike] – the longest dream I have ever held onto. And now, the best part is I get to share that dream with my children and the people that I love. I'm 40 [Jason turns 40 on August 1], and I finally built a bike. There are people who come into our lives like guiding spirits, providing the missing lesson we need. Teachers become friends, and friends become family”, Jason says, proving he is truly the 'moon of our moon'. © YouTube He fulfilled his own dream of building a bike with his kids and that proves that the best things in life cannot be bought. So, build more memories, spend more time with your parents, because tomorrow is not promised and today is all we have.

  3. There is something special about our men in green, won't you agree? Dressed in their crisp camo-green uniforms, with stand-out medals and stripes pinned over their proud, selfless heart evokes a kind of respect and admiration that is exclusively reserved for our greatest warriors who make up our motherland's most formidable protectors. However, given the sort of picture our mind paints when we say “army dad”, it wouldn't be wrong to state that somehow, certain aspects from their field of work often tends to rub onto the image of “army dads”. For years now, Indian television has fed its audience with a certain image of an army dad - someone who is strong yet stern, doesn't give in to strong emotions easily, is a man of few words, lives by the book and treats the world as his oyster. (c) Getty Images But, surely you don't believe all of that to be true, right? There's got to be an affectionate father's heart thrumming quietly but firmly, under that tough shell of a persona they put on everytime they don their uniforms. Like any other father on this planet, their hearts brim with love, pride, hopes and dreams for their children. Like most father's, army dads are quick to make sacrifices too but theirs always weighs heavier because it comes easily not only for their kids but also for their motherland. (c) Getty Images Army dads don't get to be around their family and children as often as they'd like, or for as long as they'd want. Duty beckons them and somehow their country always 'seems' to surpass the children to grab the top spot. Still, that never stops them from going all out looking out for them as fiercely as their motherland. There is a lot we are unaware of when it comes to a father's love towards his child, and an army dad is somehow a step ahead even here because there is so little we get to know about their personal lives. (c) Getty Images This Father's Day, we caught up with army dads and asked them to tell us their side of the story, and throw some light on the kind of relationship they share with their children given their demanding job and busy schedules. When we asked Colonel Khan Mahmood how being in the Army impacted his relationship with his kids, he told us that, “With great pride, I state that I am a third generation Army Officer. My father Late Col SA Khan has tutored me to spend quality time whenever possible. With my wife's support the impact on the relationship with both my sons has been excellent!” (c) Twitter Yet, Col Khan didn't shy away from admitting that he did miss out on some significant milestones in his sons' lives that he wishes he could make up for. Talking about it he said, “Life is certainly not a bed of roses.Who knows it better than a man proudly donning the Olive Green. I have missed out on various precious moments. Won't say 'regret' but yes I would have loved to see both my sons taking their 'first step' towards progress.” However, regardless of it all, when Col Khan shared his favourite Father's Day memory it left us beaming, just like him. He said, “For our generation 'Father's Day' is everyday. The day my 3-year-old elder son gave me a Father's Day card and wished me in the most adorable style, made me promise to try to be the best father to my sons, and best son to my father.” That isn't all, here is what other Army Dads told us about their special bonds with their children.

  4. We know them as fathers, but they go by a gazillion other names. Some of us call them 'dad', while others refer to them as 'papa', 'baba', 'pops', and 'daddy', besides myriad other endearments. But no matter which name we use and how we choose to call out to them, our fathers continue to be our greatest heroes - one of our greatest joys and pride. What is it about them though, which makes us feel a thousand times better the instant we know they are looking out for us and have our back? Why is it that a mere question from them regarding our well-being eases any discomfort in our lives and their words do wonders to boost our confidence and outlook towards life? (c) Getty Images Is it the backhanded compliments they pass on from time to time, or the fact that they never seem to think twice before making us - their stubborn, sassy kids - the centre of their world? The unsaid sacrifices our parents happily make for us, and all the forgiveness that comes so easily to them (no matter how many times we mess things up or how badly), and the way they are always so quick to love us, pick us up when we fall, and thrash our ass red when we are out of line. Yet, it is somehow always their silent support, selfless affection and care that helps us stay afloat through a ton of shit life throws our way. That's how it is for most of us out there. Surely, not always one of the most simple, but surely one of the strongest bonds we share is between a father and his child. (c) Getty Images However, did you imagine what it would feel like to have all that taken away from you because the society cannot understand who you are and sympathise with your reality? When a father is cornered by unknown faces of judgements and social castration which provokes him to question his own child and the bond they share? That is exactly what happened when Dr. Meera Parida and Meghna Sahoo's family found out they were transgenders. Suddenly their loving fathers would not look at them in the same light and the affection receded to pure detestation. Not being able to live with such a tremendous change in their relationship, Meera left her home and Meghna was asked to leave by her father. (c) Meghna Sahoo Losing their fathers bothered Meera and Meghna to no end, they simply couldn't get over the fact that they no longer had a father to call their own. Meera shared with MensXP that though it started out on a sour note, her experiences and explorations over the following years made it clear to Meera that it was the society and its diktats that were to blame, and not her father. Even Meghna seconds this as she told us that it was indeed the societal pressure that pushed her father to take such a drastic measure. But eventually he did come around. Meera & Her Father Yet, Meera is quick to admit that regardless of it all, it was her father who saved her from choosing the wrong path when the going got tough. She said, “there once came such a low point when I had almost gotten into working as a *** worker. Transgenders are infamous for the job, and perhaps that is why even my father loathed our kind. But I remembered by father's words that we must never do something that would break a family or stop us from holding our head high. That's when I decided to turn my life around.” Meghna & Her Father She adds that, “when my father read about my work and the movement I had launched for the transgender community, he made my brother call me. But when my brother began threatening me on the phone I heard my father slap him, and the next moment he told go ahead and do what you want, live how you want to.” Meghna also has a similar story of reconciliation that is equally heartwarming. Fours years after she was thrown out of the house, Meghna received a call from her father. She says, “my father told me that they have built a new house and I should be there with the entire family for the housewarming. He added that the celebrations would be incomplete without my presence.” (c) Meghna Sahoo A lot has changed in Meera and Meghna's life since those fateful days of reconciliation with their fathers. Meera holds a doctorate, is a transgender rights champion and an active face in Odisha's political scene. As for Meghna, she is a well-known Transgender activist from Odisha with a MBA degree and an NGO that she runs, apart from being the first transgender driver with OLA. (c) Meghna Sahoo But if there is one thing both of them earnestly believe, it is that no matter what happens, nothing can alter the bond a father shares with his child.
  5. Happy Father's Day! It's that time of the year again where everyone is just openly showing so much love for their fathers and it's honestly so wholesome and great too. It's just a good day to be on social media and see people show so much appreciation. Side note: not trying to be salty or anything, but I haven't seen any sarcastic posts about how kids are sharing pictures with their fathers on Instagram or Twitter when their fathers aren't even on that website. Coming back to all the Father's Day wishes, Bollywood hasn't shied away from sharing all the love and most of the celebrities are posting heartfelt messages while a few have some funny stuff. Starting off, Karan Johar with such an emotional caption. View this post on Instagram Papa!

  6. A word like 'ripped' has probably never ever been used to describe Arjun Kapoor (no offence), but there's always a first for everything and now, it's his time to shine. Just an hour ago, Arjun Kapoor shared a couple of pictures of himself, as proof that he's been hitting the gym. I guess that's what happens when you're dating someone as fit as Malaika. View this post on Instagram Warrior mode on !!! #panipat A post shared by Arjun Kapoor (@arjunkapoor) on Jun 12, 2019 at 3:46am PDT He looks ripped as hell and yeah, that's all good for him but we just want to know how and when? I mean, he has never looked like this before so it should be a new thing, but literally every picture he has posted recently, he looks nowhere as fit like this one.

  7. Parenting ain't no easy job, especially when you have to raise an extremely demanding tech-savvy generation like today. Father's Day is tomorrow and a pat on the back or a phone call can go a long way. Meaning, if you haven't already thought of a few gifts for your dad, it's probably about time. Luckily, we're here to help you out. There are a ton of things you could get your tech-savvy dad, and we've compiled a list of latest options for you. These gadgets are among our favourites and very utilitarian: 1. Google Home Mini: © Google The Google Home Mini has a lot of uses, but it's also one of our favourite white noise machines. Just have him say "Hey Google, play rain sounds" or "white noise" or "fan sounds." There's a whole list of relaxing sounds any Google Assistant speaker can make. Digital assistants have gotten extremely smart and with a habit, you can tune them exactly as you want. In the long run, they indeed help you organise daily tasks and voice commands eliminate quite a few manual interactions. Lastly, the Mini is a classic speaker. Feeling even more generous? Bundle along a yearly YouTube Music subscription for him! From Flipkart 2. Fitbit Versa Lite: © YouTube If you thought a weighing machine was a good idea for your dad, then perhaps a fitness tracker makes even more sense. Don't just taunt him about gaining weight, help him burn the extra fat! The Fitbit Versa Lite is a perfect combination of a tracker and smartwatch. It has up to five days of battery life, elegant design, punchy display, and an accurate Fitbit OS tracking system. With the heart rate scanner, ensure you stay healthy every step of the day. Lastly, it can run some nifty apps that are helpful on the go and it doesn't cost as much as an Apple Watch. From Amazon.in 3. Amazon Kindle Paperwhite: © YouTube The design has remained unchanged for years and that's because it's perfect as it is. Rather than a trendy glass built delicate gadget, the Kindle is an evergreen option for those who love to read. With month-long battery life, there's no stopping. The new Kindle Paperwhite offers something crucial in this day and age: a break from our smartphones, laptops, and TVs. After a hectic day of work, you want to be away from a screen. And, thanks to the e-ink technology, the Kindle never strains your eyes. What's more? Bundle along a Kindle Unlimited membership! From Amazon.in 4. Sony WH-1000XM3: © Sony The Sony WH1000XM3 headphones have been hailed over the past few months as having the best noise-cancellation out there. But the headphones don't stop at offering great noise cancellation -- they also sound absolutely awesome, offering great low-end, well-tuned mids, and a ton of detail in the high-end. The Bluetooth enabled earphones supports LDAC that allows one to enjoy high-resolution audio than conventional earphones. If you're in the middle of an intense music session when you suddenly you need to talk to someone around you, placing your hand on the housing will turn down the volume automatically! Oh, and it has 30 hours of battery life. From Amazon.in 5. Mi Air Purifier 2S: © Xiaomi The Air Purifier 2S packs a dose of smarts you don't see in most competitors, such as Wi-fi connectivity and remote management from the Mi Home app. The fan never stops spinning unless you power the device down and Xiaomi says, the custom-made motor draws a mere 4.8 watts in normal operation. The addition of a small OLED display makes operations very convenient. Air pollution in India is here to stay for a long time, about time we start considering its long term effects and prepare accordingly. From Amazon.in 6. Fossil Sport Smartwatch: © YouTube The Fitbit is built with health and fitness as its primary selling point, the Fossil, on the other hand, is a fashion accessory. Sure, it has all the required health features like heart rate scanning, Google Fit, and even untethered GPS. But, it goes a step forward with its design and customizability options. It's compatible with Android and iOS as well as fit all 22mm straps. You can also customize the dial to match your mood or personalize select watch faces with your favourite Facebook or Instagram photos. From Amazon.in

  9. Shopping for a great gift for a loved one is hard, and it's no different when it comes to buying a Father's Day gift for your dad. After all, he's the man whose dressing sense you copied as a kid, the man who taught you how to ride a bike and how to shave. More importantly, he's the man whose dad jokes you've appropriated into your own repertoire! As you try to convey your appreciation for all that he's done for you this Father's Day, we're sure you'd agree that a run-of-the-mill gift will not do. Your dad deserves the best, and we have the perfect gift for him! Presenting the Man Box: The Daily Fix, which contains eight carefully curated grooming essentials for the modern man. Let's open it up and take a closer look at the goodies inside.

  10. Yeah, you read that right. But of course, there are conditions attached, my friend! So calm your horses down. Amsterdam is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world which originally has over 1 million residents but hosts over 19 million tourists every year. In a new initiative to allow tourists to have a more authentic taste of the city and boost tourist economy, 'Untourist Guide to Amsterdam', a website that was launched recently has launched a campaign called 'Marry an Amsterdammer for a day'. View this post on Instagram Who's up for a boat tour? ๠Tag your friends! | â¡ Stay tuned @freecityguide ð¸: @chiukiamsterdam A post shared by Amsterdam City Guide (@freecityguide) on Jun 6, 2019 at 6:00am PDT Under this campaign, tourists will now be able to sign up for marrying a local listed as a resident for a day. The fake wedding will be a ceremony of 35 minutes and post that, you can enjoy a full day celebrating your honeymoon where your fake bride/groom will help you escape monotony and explore the gorgeous city. Well, the wedding is fake, so obviously the 'honeymoon' is also an umbrella term for the experience, so please don't run your imagination. The bid for the 'spouse' will begin from around 100 Euros and the tourist will be allowed to have family and friends at the wedding.

Seems like a crazy idea which will obviously drive so many 'desi' tourists there but damn, we're broke right now bro.
  11. PUBG Mobile hype is causing some serious trouble in countries like India where a lot of people are currently dealing with gaming addiction. While some people have been arrested, others have even lost their lives or ended up with broken marriages. But PUBG Mobile developer Tencent Games, on the other hand, is enjoying by cashing in on all the hype. According to a new report from intelligence firm, Sensor Tower, Tencent has crossed $4.8 million a day in May. Yes, the company literally made $4.8 million a day i.e. over Rs. 33 Crores a day from PUBG Mobile and it's clone called Game For Peace that it launched in China. © PUBG Mobile With that, Tencent is now said to own the world's highest grossing mobile app and the highest grossing mobile game, which is just insane. Do make a note that these are just estimates, but even the exact value is expected to be somewhere in the same ballpark. The total amount is said to be 126-percent higher quarter on quarter in comparison to the $65 million that PUBG Mobile grossed in April 2019. It's also worth pointing out that the estimate excludes Android revenue from China. Of the total revenue earned by Tencent from PUBG Mobile and the new Game for Peace, over $101 million came from Apple's App Store and $45.3 million from Google's Play Store. The revenue from both games, when put together, is about 17-percent more than $125 million made by Honor of Kings, which is yet another smash hit title published by Tencent. © PUBG Mobile Sensor Tower's Head of Mobile Insights, Randy Nelson, who shared all this information, said, “App Store and Google Play users worldwide spent an average of $4.8 million per day last month between both PUBG Mobile versions. The chief rival to both of Tencent's titles, Fortnite from Epic Games, had its best month so far in 2019 on iOS, but its total player spending of $43.3 million was only about 43 percent of Game for Peace and PUBG Mobile's combined take for May.”
  12. If excessive sweating is what you face every day, we have your back. Anyone who sweats excessively tends to fret over sweat stains. We get it that it's a struggle, especially in this scorching heat. Not only does it affect your look, but also hampers your confidence level. Don't let it affect you in any way. Check out these fashion hacks for your wardrobe to keep the stench away, forever: © Facebook 1. Choose The Right Colours It seems like an excellent idea to wear light colours in this hot weather, but tbh, they don't do a great job at hiding those sweat stains. Light colours like white, grey or beige grab all the attention, but dark navy blue, black or brown will work out for you. © Getty Images 2. Opt For An Absorbent T-Shirt Worried about sweating through your entire look? Absorbent t-shirts are the exact summer saviours you were looking for. Yes, they can be worn underneath and are a sure shot way to keep the stains miles away! 3. Use Natural Fibers For Summers Instead of opting for nylon or polyester shirts, splurge on cotton or linen. They are a safe haven for men who sweat a lot. Natural fibers go a long way and are bound to make you feel less sweaty. Keep this suggestion in mind so you never mess up in an interview or on a date night! © Getty Images 4. Sweat Pads For The Win In case, you sweat a lot from your armpits, sweat pads are the fix you need. You can either stick them on your shirts or wear them directly with clean-shaven armpits. © Getty Images 5. Fix The Stains We all are aware of the disastrous stink of armpits. The sweaty patches tend to stick by for a longer period of time. Next time, before you throw your t-shirt to wash, apply a dab of lemon juice on the stain to eliminate the marks completely and stay fresh all summer long. © Getty Images 6. Opt For A Good Pair Of Shoes Sweaty feet invite trouble, not just for yourself, but also for the people around you. Let your feet breathe in this weather. Steer clear of canvas or plastic shoes and keep your feet rejuvenated at all hours. Wear cotton socks with lightweight formal shoes, sneakers. © Getty Images 7. Ditch Your Backpack Backpacks are your enemy as the sweat gates open up. They also weigh you down due to the whole world stowed in it. Keep yourself cool with messenger bags to lower down the burden on your back, thus lessening the chances of sweat stains. © Getty Images
  13. Apple is bringing major changes to the iPad as the Cupertino giant unveiled iPadOS last night at WWDC. Some of these features were highly requested by iPad users for better usability, functionality and adaptability. Apple announced the new iPadOS with new features that brings the iPad closer to laptops. Here are the features announced by Apple for iPadOS: 1. Mouse Support iPad users have requested mouse support for a while especially since the new iPad Pro is powerful enough to take on most laptops. For now, Apple has implemented mouse support as an AssistiveTouch feature which we feel is just the starting point. This feature at the moment simulates the touch action and can be done using a mouse instead. Currently, the feature is compatible with Apple's Magic Trackpad, and wireless Bluetooth mice. USB mice are reportedly supported but we can only be sure once it rolls out. Hello mouse support on iOS 13! It's an AssistiveTouch feature, and works with USB mice. @viticci nailed this pic.twitter.com/nj6xGAKSg0 — Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) June 3, 2019 2. USB File Transfers © Apple In order to come closer to a laptop's functionality, Apple's Files app needed additional support for better files management. Most users wanted support for USB drives and Apple is finally bringing support on the iPadOS. The new operating system will allow users to easily plug in USB drives, SD cards or log into an SMB file server. There's also support for importing photos directly from a camera into Lightroom. 3. Second Screen © Apple If you own a Macbook and want additional screen space, the iPad will now be able to fill that void. iPadOS brings the added feature of using your iPad as a secondary display. You can even use the iPad to edit images on your MacBook in real time. 4. Better Multitasking © Apple iPad users can now work with multiple files and documents from the same app simultaneously with updates to Split View, or can quickly view and switch between multiple apps in Slide Over. For example, customers can compose an email while viewing another email side by side or access multiple apps like Messages or Calendar with just a swipe. The iPad OS will be available for beta users later this month and is available now for Apple Developer Program members.

  15. Coming from a small village of Kheri Kalan in the suburb of Faridabad, Sargar 'The Sher' Narwat is undefeated in the super welterweight category and boasts a record of 9 wins, 0 losses and 1 draw with a knockout rate of 30%. One to consider winning and losing is part of the game Narwat is a believer of continuous training and constantly putting in his best effort in practice. “It is only because of my dedication and passion for boxing that I am undefeated right now,” he says. In his journey to national and eventually international glory, Narwat has received a lot of support from nation, especially ever since one of his amateur bouts went viral on social media and people began to take notice of the pugilist. “I considered myself to be extremely lucky to have the support of so many boxing fans of India. While it adds a lot of pressure on me to perform better inside the ring, it also gives me great honour to represent my country in grand, international events.” View this post on Instagram When you win, say nothing, when you lose, say less.” @megaboxing_in @royalsportspromotions @nitesh_narwat @lzpromotions @ankitnarwatphotography @siddhantkapoor_photography #theshernarwat #sagarnarwatboxer #india #crossfit #crossfitboys #backontrack #crazyfrmypassion #usaboxing #bigaim #hardwork #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel #athlete #strength #beliveinhardwork #boxingtraning #boxinglegend #boxinghype #boxeo #boxinglife #boxinggym #knockout #sport #ko #taekwondo #kickboxing #jiujitsu #muaythai #fightnight A post shared by Sagar Narwat ð®ð³ (@sagarnarwatboxer) on May 5, 2019 at 7:18am PDT Ever since turning pro, Narwat has played in several Boxing leagues in India, Super Boxing League being one of his first. “During my tenure with SBL, one of my fights was against a great Army boxer who had won a lot of professional matches in the past while I was a complete nobody at the time,” Narwat recalls. After dodging his massive swings and throwing timely punches while constantly trying to calm my nerves, I was finally able to beat him. That is when I got the name 'The Sher'”. “I love this name that the boxing brethren has given me and I hope to continue to do justice to it in the future.” Currently, Narwat is under contract with Mega Boxing, India's first Professional Boxing Intellectual Property, which is recognised by the World Boxing Organization (WBO) with an aim to position professional boxing as a premium sporting entertainment entity and under the guidance of the world class coaching the organisation provides, is training to contest for the World Championship title in super welterweight category that currently rests with Mexico's Jaime Munguia. View this post on Instagram @lzpromotions and @sagarnarwatboxer are pleased to announce an USA management contract. Super Boxing League Middleweight Champion Sagar will continue to fight in the SBL.

Taking Boxing and Sports to #1 Globally Together #ð®ð³ GTown #boxing #news #jat #jaat #life #theshernarwat #sagarnarwatboxer #bullet #delhi #usa A post shared by Sagar Narwat ð®ð³ (@sagarnarwatboxer) on Feb 22, 2019 at 8:06am PST Narwat sees a lot of potential in the younger kids of his village as boxers, and has taken upon himself to train them to one day become world class fighters. “Every day, I train the kids of my village both in the morning and the evening. Kids in my village have always wanted to box. Back when I was their age, we have no boxing rings or academies. We used to get together at any 'chowki' and begin sparring. If under such untrained conditions, boxers from Kheri Kalan have gone to do so well. Imagine what can happen if they are trained professionally!” View this post on Instagram @singhvijender @pardeepkharera1 @roshan5256 @sachin_dekwal_official #team #Roshan A post shared by Sagar Narwat ð®ð³ (@sagarnarwatboxer) on Dec 14, 2017 at 7:57am PST Even though, the better half of Narwat's day is spent working with the kids, his vision of becoming the greatest boxer in the world remains unshaken. “I train the young fighters every morning and evening to the best of my abilities and I train myself in between the sessions, in the afternoon.” “Boxing is such a game that the day your training gets flawed and you stop giving your 100% in the ring, the next aspiring boxer will replace you within a split second. Even if I do not have a match scheduled for the next day or the next week, my training continues with the same intensity.” He finally urges the upcoming boxers to never settle. “If you've won a match, great. Move on to the next one where the stakes are higher. People get way too relaxed after winning a bout. they become casual about their training, the food they eat. Never be satisfied with what you have achieved till now, always reach for the stars.”
  16. One of the 22 districts of the state of Haryana, Bhiwani is known for producing some of the best boxers India has ever seen. If you'd knock on every alternate door in the area, there is a high possibility that an aspiring boxer is going to answer it. Fighters like Vijender Singh, Jitender Kumar, Anil Kumar and Kavita Chahal who have not only represented the nation in international tournaments and leagues but also brought laurels back to the country to prove their worth, all of them have been raised and trained as fearless fighters in Bhiwani with the 'winning at all cost' mentality. It is because of such passion for the sport of boxing that the place is known as 'Little Cuba' of the world. But even though fighters like Vijender Singh did not belong to wealthy families, they still had people who could back them up financially while they pursued their goals of one day representing India in the ring and eventually turn pro and earn big bucks. This story is not about those guys. This story is about Rajesh Lukka, another Bhiwani-based 24-year-old boxer who is working day and night to perfect his craft and make his country proud just like his seniors have done in the past. © Mega Boxing Lukka, who started boxing in 2006, had his first bout in Gurgaon during which he got beat up pretty badly. He had seen his idols fall on the mat like deadweight after getting knocked out but rise again only to try and become better the next day and that was what Lukka aspired to be as a youth. He understood that champions aren't made in a day and he continued to work hard. But it is his struggle off the ring that makes his story worth sharing. When Lukka was all but 17 years of age, his sister was diagnosed with cancer and despite all the efforts of the family, could not win her battle against the fatal disease. This had an extremely adverse impact on Lukka, who was very close to her and believes that she was the one who raised him to become the man he is today. Losing someone so close to his heart shattered his willingness to become a fighter. He gave up boxing and decided to look for another job. In 2014, things took a turn for the worse when his father too expired due to cancer, leaving the family in a suffocating situation in which there was no earning member in the family but a lot of stomachs to feed. Lukka therefore decided to open a tea stall on the road with the hopes of trying to make ends meet. His dream of boxing for his country nowhere in sight. This is when Lukka's brother came into the picture. He used to continuously motivate him to reach for the stars and do what he was meant to do, box. He reminded Lukka of his life's purpose, made him realise what a wonderful talent he was gifted with and why he should not be wasting his life like this. © Mega Boxing Lukka began to hope once again, began to dream again. Waking up as early as 3 in the morning, he would practice between 4 am and 5 am then go to work, selling tea at his stall and returned to the ring in the evening. “I practiced night and day knowing that if I believed in myself, if I believed in my dreams long enough, something good is bound to happen one day,” says the 24-year-old pugilist. And soon after, Lukka signed a contract with Mega Boxing, India's first Professional Boxing Intellectual Property, which is recognised by the World Boxing Organization (WBO) with an aim to position professional boxing as a premium sporting entertainment entity. Lukka went on to turn professional and there is no looking back for him. Challenging under the lightweight category the Bhiwani-born has had 10 bouts under his belt so far. He has fought four national level fights winning three of them and one ending in a draw. He has also sparred in six international fights with a 100% winning record, which not only makes it a dangerous athlete, it also makes him unbeaten. For his dedication and passion to go along with the various achievements Lukka has earned through the years, he was even felicitated with the World Boxing Council (WBC) Youth Asian Title in 2018. While Lukka aims to contest for WBO Asia Pacific title in the lightweight category in the next three to four months, his end goal is far more prestigious. “I am in this for something a lot bigger. While boxers like Vijender ji inspired me to take up this game, I want to become that bridge that brings the upcoming boxers of the country the opportunity to not only have great fights with international talent but also make good money for themselves and their families in the process.”

  20. The most anticipatory moment of the entire year is finally here and fans are going berserk witnessing a decade-worth of films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe coming to an end with 'Avengers: Endgame', in the theatres. The movie came to the halls on the 26th Of April and it's been running packed in theatres since! There are over 25 lakh tickets sold out on the online booking portal BookMyShow and with that, 'Avengers: Endgame' has become the fastest film to have surpassed the two-million advance ticket sales mark on BookMyShow! This is actually quite phenomenal. © Walt Disney Studios Motion pictures According to Forbes, the movie has performed extremely well and has raked in an opening day collection of $216.6 million (around INR 1403 crore) worldwide, with $47.6 million (around INR 334 crore) coming in from China. That's one box office record to beat, TBH! In India alone, some theatres have opened screenings 24x7 to actually meet the increasing demands of watching the show the day it's out. Which makes sense though. A true Marvel fan won't wait a week anyway to watch 'Avengers: Endgame' and there are quite a few of those in India. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture "With just a few hours left for 'Avengers: Endgame' to hit the screens, the frenzy around the film is unprecedented. The cinemas are doing everything possible to match fans' demand for the film, including round-the-clock screenings as also opening up advance bookings for the entire week ahead." Ashish Saksena, the COO for BookMyShow told a popular news agency. According to a trade analyst, 'Avengers: Endgame' is expected to earn over $260 million (a whopping INR 1823 crore), while some believe the film will definitely cross the $300 million-mark (INR 2104 crore). This is an insane record breaker in the history of cinema and if you haven't caught it yet, it's about time you do! The film has excellent reviews from every corner of the world! © Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture 'Avengers: Endgame' is the 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and stars Robert Downey Jr. Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Brie Larson, among many others.
  21. Introduced to the world in 1873 in a totally different context, denims have become an integral part of our lives today. What started out as men's attire, has now become a staple separate of people around the world. The term jean owes its origin to the Italian city of Genoa where the fabric was first made, dyed blue even in those days (hence called blue de Genes or literally blue of Genoa). The dye came from Indian Indigo extracted from the plant which was first domesticated in India. Although a plethora of innovative materials are available in the market, denim remains one of the most ingenious, protean, durable and highly sought after fabrics on the market. It is one of the only items of clothing to transcend gender, age, and class - having a long and interesting life to date. The reason for their fruition has as much to do with their cultural meaning as their physical construction. On the occasion of World Denim Day we will walk through the journey of this wonder garment detailing the phases of its evolution and popularity: 1950s - The Birth Of Cool Jeans Teenagers embraced blue jeans in the 1950s when Hollywood movies introduced jeans as a fashionable statement piece of rebellion against the status quo. Light washes, cuffed denim styles and black basic jeans were the regnant jeans trends among men. Women rarely wore denim during the 1950s. 1960s - Jeans As Counter Culture Fashion 1960sgave birth to and nurtured the hippie culture. The youthful, free love movement that rocked American culture encased the most classic casual blue jean, which was representing the freedom from more structured pieces of clothing. In the prevalent decade of creative expression through the sense of fashion, personalizing the denim was considered very groovy. Embroidered bright colors with stone washed finishes and patches were just a few of the dominant jean trends at the time. Popular cuts included bell bottom flares and low-rise hip huggers. Denim on denim also embarked its first real appearance as a fashion trend during the 1960swhen jean jackets became standard hippie wear. 1980s -The Birth of Designer Jeans Stone wash, acid wash, and ripped jeans were some of the most in-demand looks of this decade, along with the new, skinnier leg cuts with tapering detailing at the ankle. 1990s - Baggy Jeans Denim fashion changed its face yet again in the 1990s, as the grunge era in fashion began. In this decade, jeans became more about slouchy, casual style than something one would prefer as a dress up essential. Multiple pockets and tabs, head-to-toe denim ensembles with dungarees and dresses were among the trendier looks which were in vogue among younger women. The rise of hip hop brought about a rise in the popularity and preference of baggy jeans, for men. 2000s - Skinny Jeans Take Over In the early 2000s, pop stars popularized the trend of ultra low-rise jean. Denim also became a fashion staple once again, becoming an appropriation and necessity. Flare and boot cut denim were among the most popular cuts of the early 2000s and a hit in an array of washes. But the biggest revolution in the denim style story of the decade began in the mid-to-late 2000s, with the resurgence of the skinny jean as an offering of innovations in denim stretch technology. 2010s- Higher Waists and Cropped Legs The trend in denim fashion headed towards variety, although skinnier styles for women remained the most popular by a huge margin, and are a fashion mainstay for most women, because of their versatility. High-waist jeans had their own segment of popularity. 2019 – GYMJNS This is slated to be the next evolution in denims with features like a '4-way dynamic stretch' or an 'ergonomic construction,' making denims perfect for workouts as well.

  22. There's no need to bet on the fact that 'Avengers: Endgame' is surely one of the most anticipated films of the year 2019. Just two days are left for the release and the fans can't keep calm. If you have booked your tickets well in advance, then you're probably bubbling with anticipation over how the movie will turn out. There's a rush among fans to see the movie on the very first day and if you are a hardcore Marvel fan and you have not been able to book the ticket, we can totally understand your pain. It's common knowledge that the barometer of any film's success rate is the box office opening. The more the movie mints, the more it attracts the audience to watch it on the big screen. Interestingly, 'Avengers: Endgame' will wrap the storylines that have been shown in the last 21 films. It's the ultimate finale and that's why the craze. Since the box office is one of the biggest parameters of the success rate of a film, we got in touch with Trade and Film Expert, Girish Johar, to know the Day 1 prediction for Endgame. © Twitter/girishjohar "The craze for 'Avengers: Endgame' is unprecedented. It's not only in India but we can see it globally. In China, the midnight screenings broke the record of 'Fast and Furious' by three times and that's not really a small thing. It has crushed the previous records and the same is expected in India. Advance bookings have gone berserk and fans have gone crazy. I, honestly, expect mayhem at the box office. They have already cloaked in a million tickets in advance which is great. It will shatter the old box office records and new ones will be set with 'Avengers: Endgame'," Girish said. "The screenings are yet to be locked by today. I envisage around Rs 50 crores plus on Day 1 including all the languages. The screens are being increased by each passing day. The audience is hungry and wants to see it. Even after ticket pricing being high, fans are still thronging so it shows the craze the people have for the franchise," added Girish. Are you excited to watch 'Avengers: Endgame' this weekend? Tell us in the comments below.
  23. Every morning with the rising sun, households come to life all across the world. There is an unsaid routine we all follow during those early hours of the day, and somewhere hidden amongst the folds of those auto-pilot motions of the morning lies a quick, often unacknowledged and seemingly insignificant interaction with the kudawalla. © Reuters Kudawallas are prime examples of people who toil hard every day, mind their own business and yet live humbly without ever seeking the recognition for the great work they do on a daily basis. They are almost guilty of leading a dual life. Much like undercover agents who get real shit done, yet never claim their dues. But let us ask you. Even if they did claim their dues, what are the chances that we would give them their due credit, or hail them as the messiah(s) of change and clean environment that they are? © Reuters Yes, all that pondering and the silence that follows it, speaks for itself. How long has your kudawalla been working for you? And in that period of time how many times have you acknowledged the world of difference that their (hand-y)work makes to our lives day after day? Well, you might not be aware that close to 4 million kudawallas or waste-pickers are engaged in this line of work in India. These waste-pickers dispose around 80 per cent of the 750,000 tons waste Indians generate every single week! © Reuters Not only do these rag-pickers collect garbage from people's houses, but additionally they also pick up waste, clean, sort and segregate it. The process ends with them separating recyclable waste from the rest, which they sell to scrap dealers to earn a regular living. They continue to do their job regardless of the apathy they are met with. With close to 62 million tonnes of annual waste to manage, and given the failing state of the municipality in most parts of the country, it is due to these 'anonymous environmentalists' that India enjoys the highest recycling rates. © Reuters India is ahead of even the USA in this matter, we recycle only 31 per cent of PET bottles as opposed to India's 70 per cent. This is made possible only by the informal recycling chain that operates in the country. Starting with the rag-pickers, who sell the waste to scrap dealers, the chain helps this waste to reach the aggregators, from where the waste eventually goes to recyclers. This informal recycling sector contributes to 100 per cent of all recycling in our country. Now, can you imagine the impact each of these 4 million rag-pickers are making to our environment year-on-year? © Reuters We agree that they are doing this for the money, but tell us, would you consider doing this “dirty work” for a living if someone paid you truck-loads of money for it every month? Then let's take a moment to appreciate and acknowledge the utmost importance of their work for our society and the environment at large. Even with their significant contribution to society, these unsung heroes remain unrecognised and undervalued. What's worse, they also face harassment from Savarna society for what they do. From physical abuse to threats and being called thieves, they have seen it all. Even official documents do not recognise their work towards solid waste management © Reuters With serious health hazards in this occupation, such as contact with hazardous medical waste, soiled sanitary pad and the lines, there is still no stopping these warriors of change, who continue to put their personal health in the line. They deserve so much more than just a passing glance from us every morning, when they stop by, almost religiously, every single day to collect our waste and make our lives cleaner and our environment more livable.
  24. Music is said to be a universal language, but for some, it is the only language that they are most comfortable speaking. For those who communicate best through notes of music, whose hearts beat in tandem with the hum of musical instruments and who speak their mind most fluently through words intricately threaded into beautiful songs, music is more than a universal language. We caught up with someone who literally eats, breathes and lives music. One of the country's sensational, rising voices that rocked the nation in 2018 with a chartbuster like Chogada, and lulled the nation's heart with 2019's greatest love song, the title track of 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga'. © Instagram There is no way the person in question needs anything further introduction, but if it isn't obvious yet, we are talking about singer, songwriter and composer Darshan Raval. He is currently one of India's most sought after voices, and even though he enjoys every bit of the love and attention he has been garnering, Darshan has been in the limelight for his newest venture with MTV Beats. But before we get to that let us tell you how Darshan the singing superstar came into being. The Backstory It all started when Darshan first started putting out covers of popular Bollywood songs on YouTube. Having been fascinated by music for most of his life, this must have seemed like the most obvious thing to do. But never did he imagine to land up in a singing reality show, and become a part of the top 3. © Instagram Darshan may not have won the show, but he won thousands of hearts across the country. His journey on the show earned him a crazy fan following and he instantly became an internet celebrity. He admits that he never set out to become a part of the music industry. All he cared about was music. Darshan says, “I never thought I wanted to be in the music industry. I just knew I wanted to do music. I had no idea about the industry, how will I reach there, what will I do. So I just started putting out my music cover videos. Soon, I started getting opportunities and every opportunity that I got, I picked up.” The Breakthrough However, the final breakthrough came with his Bollywood debut back in 2015, that put Darshan under the spotlight. His Bollywood debut song 'Jab Tum Chaho' caught the attention of all the right people, and there was no looking back after that. © Instagram Talking about this colourful journey, Darshan tells MensXP, “My journey has been wonderful and magical. Magical because everything that has happened so far, the good and the bad, feels like it was all meant to be. Those things happened and that's the reason why I am here today. Falling everyday, but getting up again, as well as believing in myself and my music has made me what I am today.” Spreading His Wings The fame and popularity that has come his way, hasn't stopped Darshan from stepping out of his comfort zone, and trying out new things. So in between his personal projects, Bollywood stints and music concerts, Darshan is now also part of MTV Beats' 'Dil Beats With Darshan Raval'. © Instagram Talking about his newest venture, Darshan tells us, “It's a beautiful show and has a very beautiful meaning. I am the Love Dost, on the show where I talk to people and share amazing love stories. The show has a very different concept. I am not a love “guru” but a friend and confidante people can reach out to. I am coming back to the television after 4 years with something very new. I'll be singing and interacting with people. So I am excited. ” The Lesser Known Challenges © Instagram However, getting to this point of success and popularity didn't come easy. There was a time when Darshan was so disheartened, he was about to give it all up. Darshan recalls that time of his life and says, “I thought I won't make it in Bollywood. After every reality show you think now people know me, everything will be amazing. But the reality is very different. So when I was about to leave, I called by Himesh (Reshammiya) sir and he asked me to not give up and stay back. Later, he helped me bag my first Bollywood song, and I will always be grateful to him for showing that kind of faith and support when I needed it the most.” The Real Struggles Come Much Later © Instagram Darshan tells us that simply being a good singer is not enough. Making your own identity in the industry is much more important. Otherwise, unless you have that one chartbuster song of your career, you will constantly get compared to other singers in the industry. “I have been told I sound like Atif Aslam, Mohit Chauhan, and Arijit. People have this tendency to do that. But the journey from that point, to the moment you get a chartbuster song of your own, that becomes the game changer. Today, people recognise my voice even without a mention of my name.” © Instagram He further adds that the “high” which comes from fame and success is another real struggles upcoming artists have to face. “When you start, you have a lot of purity and innocence as a singer. But it keeps evaporating over time when you are constantly singing superhit songs and doing housefull shows. Sometimes the fame and popularity gets to your head. But we should stay rooted during such situations, while accepting all the love and positive feedback we are getting.” Key To Success Darshan feels that in the music industry failure becomes your greatest teacher. “I pray to God everyday that I fail. You can't learn from success, it the failures that teach us the best lessons. Even as a composer and a singer I have to keep practising and making music. This phase of introspection and revision that comes from failing is important for growth.” © Instagram He gives the same advice to every aspiring singer out there who wishes to make it as a singer in the industry. He says, “You have to failure. However, failures will come and go, but believe in yourself. People will always have opinions. It's a beautiful life, regardless of failure or success, enjoy what you do and love what you are doing. #DarshanSpeaks: How To Become A Singer “Keep practising, keep listening to music. It's a process. You have to keep training yourself, it won't happen overnight. Having a sense of music is also important.”
  25. "That night still haunts me. When I saw my dad butchered to death before my own eyes. It was terrifying, to live in the constant fear of imminent claws of death. Even the memory of it throws me back to a dark time in my own life, a time of helplessness and fear." For most of us, this is a sad story that moves people and brings tears to their eyes. But, there is someone somewhere who is living this horror every single day. Within an instant, they lose their home, families, language, occupation, everything and become refugees seeking shelter and safety. © enactus DCAC We live in the comfort of four walls, eat proper food, drink clean water, and get the best education possible. We are so protected and have everything at our disposal that we never realise how privileged we are. On one hand, where we start taking things for granted, on the other, there exists a parallel world where our basic necessities are somebody's luxury. They crave for it, they want it, but cannot afford it. We are talking about those who are underprivileged. © enactus DCAC The absence of government support, basic human rights and most of all absence of humanity from us, makes this community even more vulnerable. Some ignore the underprivileged and refugees, some pity them, but how many of us actually come forward to help them? Well, we don't know about you but a bunch of students sure are working towards their upliftment and in the process, are taking huge steps towards building a better society. Meet Enactus, an international non-profit student body spread across 36 countries with 144 chapters in India, which is working for the upliftment of the underprivileged and marginalised communities in their own right. One of their chapters in Delhi is looked by Delhi University's Delhi College of Arts and Commerce (DCAC). © enactus DCAC Enactus DCAC realised that because the refugees have little or no education, they are trapped in a vicious cycle of poverty and often find themselves getting drawn towards anti-social activities. So the students of this organisation decided to bring about a change, with the power vested in them and together they launched the project Taaleem, to provide quality primary education to the refugee children. © enactus DCAC Their strategy is simple, use a community-driven model of storytelling, and they have specially designed an Active Story Based Curriculum for them. Since these kids have not been to school, they have a huge learning gap irrespective of how old they are. So they analyse the learning and knowledge level of the kids and then divide them into groups on the basis of their learning levels instead of ages. © enactus DCAC These young college students have pledged to bring light and hope in the refugees' lives and change their lives for good. Apart from Taaleem, they are also working on CanSurvive, a project wherein they aim at selling prosthetic bras at a lesser rate and also break the taboo around breast cancer. If only more people could think like them, the world would be a better place to live in.
