  1. One of the original eight franchises of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Delhi Capitals recently changed their name from 'Delhi Daredevils' after a rather forgettable season. According to Co-Owner and Chairman of the team, Parth Jindal, the reason behind changing the name was that Delhi is the power centre of the country and also the capital, hence the name 'Delhi Capitals'. Classic. Having never been able to make it to the Indian Premier League final, the last time Delhi Capitals made it to the Playoffs was all the way back in 2012 when the former Indian opener, Virender Sehwag stepped down from the position of the captain of the team following one of the worst seasons in the history of IPL in 2011. Having made significant changes to the team's name and roster ahead of the 2019 IPL season, the ownership hopes to bring success to the city and these five players will be crucial in doing so: 1. Shikhar Dhawan Bina Gabbar ke Holi bhi koi Holi hai? #HappyHoli #ThisIsNewDelhi #DelhiCapitals pic.twitter.com/EewQPoc51G — Delhi Capitals (@DelhiCapitals) March 21, 2019 Making his return to the team with which he made his IPL debut in 2008, Shikhar Dhawan has wreaked havoc against his opponents in the league. Although he has been struggling with the bat for the Indian cricket team for quite some time now, Delhi Capitals has sent a lot of talent including the rising allrounder Vijay Shankar, spinner Shahbaz Nadeem and the young Abhishek Sharma to SunRisers Hyderabad in the trade to bring back Dhawan. We look forward to seeing the veteran use his experience along with the young batting line-up consisting of Rishabh Pant and Prithvi Shaw to bring back the glory days to the city. 2. Rishabh Pant When @RishabPant777 hits it, it stays hit Describe kijiye inki batting ek word mein... #ThisIsNewDelhi #DelhiCapitals #QilaKotla pic.twitter.com/HdcuT9BCLh — Delhi Capitals (@DelhiCapitals) March 20, 2019 After getting accused of being one of the major reasons for India's ODI series loss against Australia, the 21-year-old athlete will be on a mission to redeem his worth and prove his abilities not only as a batsman but behind the wicket as well. This will be Pant's fourth season with his hometown team ever since he made his debut in 2016 and the franchise clearly has high hopes from him as he was one of the first stars to be retained by the owners. Although Ravi Shastri has made it clear that the IPL will have zero effect on the decision-making for squad selection for the upcoming ICC World Cup, the 2019 IPL may be Pant's final opportunity to convince the selectors of why he should be on the roster. 3. Prithvi Shaw SHER hai tu SHER Roarrrrrrrrrrrrr pic.twitter.com/HJm3uRtQTn — Prithvi Shaw (@PrithviShaw) March 21, 2019 The 19-year-old powerhouse that Prithvi Shaw is, he is certain to go for big hits throughout the tournament while it is highly likely for him to open the Delhi batting-lineup with the veteran Shikhar Dhawan on the other end. After being out of action for nearly three months suffering an ankle injury during India's tour of Australia, Shaw returned to the game in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy but failed to do well with the exception of a 71-run innings against Goa. Ever since Shaw came into the limelight, he has been referred to as a talent as good as any. Being great at such a young age has earned him comparisons to Sachin Tendulkar and if there is even the smallest truth in that, people better watch out for him. 4. Amit Mishra 3⣠hat-tricks. 1⣠and only Mishi bhai. Sunday se aayega mazaa Mumbai mein kitne wickets lenge hamare DC legend?@MishiAmit#ThisIsNewDelhi #DelhiCapitals pic.twitter.com/lo8xIHO1oe — Delhi Capitals (@DelhiCapitals) March 21, 2019 One of the cornerstones of the Delhi team since the last four years, Mishra was retained by the team for the 2019 season. He has been consistent in collecting wickets and also boasts the record of becoming the first player to take three hat-tricks in IPL. He has been the most successful bowler in the history of Delhi Daredevils/Capitals history bagging 132 wickets for his side in the past four seasons. His ability to stick to the crease in dire situations makes him an essential player too. 5. Trent Boult Boult's name on the roster cost DC approximately Rs. 2.8 crores at the time of the 2018 auction which justifies his number two position on ICC ODI rankings for bowlers. In the recent ODI and T20 series against the visiting Indian cricket team, Boult's 12 wickets in five matches were crucial for the Kiwis, even though their side lost the series 4-1.

    Delhi Capitals

    If the likes of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI) are deemed as the most successful teams in the tournament, then Delhi Capitals would arguably be termed as the most inconsistent team in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL). In the last 11 years of the IPL, the fact that Delhi is the only team to never reach the final, shows how poor they've been in the competition. Their best result in the IPL came 2009 and 2012 where they managed to finish third in the points table. And, the next couple of years saw them going through the worst phase in the league as they finished last in team standings consecutively. The last season proved to be no different for Delhi who, once again, finished last with just five wins to their name. Owing to their history of forgettable performances, Delhi underwent a major overhaul that also saw them shedding 'Daredevils' to 'Capitals' in their franchise name. In a bid to change their fortunes, Delhi splashed out a whopping Rs 17.80 crore at the 2019 IPL Auctions to restructure their squad for the new season. © BCCL Having retained the key players from last season, Delhi secured the services of Colin Ingram (Rs 6.4 cr), Axar Patel (Rs 5 cr), Hanuma Vihari (Rs 2 cr), Sherfane Rutherford (Rs 2 cr), Ishant Sharma (Rs 1.1 cr), Keemo Paul (Rs 50 lakh), Jalaj Saxena (Rs 20 lakh), Ankush Bains (Rs 20 lakh), Nathu Singh (Rs 20 lakh) and Bandaru Ayyappa (Rs 20 lakh). The top-order will surely be bolstered with the arrival of Shikhar Dhawan in the Delhi camp. But, the inexperience of Prithvi Shaw and Colin Ingram's lack of exposure in the IPL make their top-order a little unconvincing. But, despite a shaky top-order, a strong and potent middle-order could do the trick for Delhi this season. © BCCL The likes of Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Hanuma Vihari and Chris Morris are more than capable of stabilising the innings for their side in the middle. Delhi also have enough fire-power in the pace attack with Trent Boult, Kagiso Rabada and Ishant Sharma forging a deadly trio. But, the chances of playing Boult and Rabada together are unlikely, which could bring Avesh Khan and Harshal Patel into play. The spin-bowling department is adequately taken care of with young Sandeep Lamichhane, experienced Amit Mishra and dynamic Axar Patel in the fold. Overall, Delhi certainly have variety in their bowling attack but the batting line-up doesn't seem to have enough confidence. And, in case of an injury, Delhi might end up struggling as their bench strength is yet to be tested. Squad: Shreyas Iyer (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant (wk), Prithvi Shaw, Colin Munro, Kagiso Rabada, Chris Morris, Bandaru Ayyappa, Sandeep Lamichhane, Ishant Sharma, Colin Ingram, Trent Boult, Manjot Kalra, Nathu Singh, Sherfane Rutherford, Rahul Tewatia, Ankush Bains, Avesh Khan, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Amit Mishra, Hanuma Vihari, Keemo Paul, Jalaj Saxena.
  3. While revamping utility and public structures has been the need of the hour, the New Delhi Railway Station can't be left untouched for long. Just a month ago, Mathura Railway Station got an absolutely new look and now it's time for Delhi to literally shine. The station was given an artsy feel, rich in culture and heritage and now every time we're catching a train from there, we'd be afraid to miss it, because it's done up quite elaborately and beautifully. The station building looks quite vibrant with some colourful patterns strewn across, with wall art and geometrical designs all over the ceilings. It really looks like we're amidst a colourful little cultural village. The station has also upgraded its public facilities like LED lights, escalators and LCD displays, all over. © Twitter The station will be equipped with solar panels for deriving energy from them and it'll be kept clean throughout. Well, Delhi isn't the only station that has been revamped. Apart from Mathura, there is also Haridwar, Jaipur and Lonavla. They've all been beatified and upgraded just as Delhi and Mathura. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal tweeted about the development of the station: बदलता भारत, बदलतॠरà¥à¤²à¤µà¥à¤ सà¥à¤µà¤¿à¤§à¤¾à¤¯à¥à¤, सà¥à¤µà¤à¥à¤à¤¤à¤¾ à¤à¤° सà¥à¤à¤¦à¤°à¥à¤¯ सॠभरा नठदिलà¥à¤²à¥ रà¥à¤²à¤µà¥ सà¥à¤à¥à¤¶à¤¨ à¤à¤¾ नया à¤à¤à¤°à¥à¤·à¤ रà¥à¤ª यातà¥à¤°à¤¿à¤¯à¥à¤ à¤à¥ à¤à¤ विशà¥à¤µà¤¸à¥à¤¤à¤°à¥à¤¯ रà¥à¤²à¤µà¥ सà¥à¤à¥à¤¶à¤¨ à¤à¤¾ à¤à¤¹à¤¸à¤¾à¤¸ à¤à¤°à¤¾ रहा हà¥à¥¤ pic.twitter.com/rUiirbwjDj — Piyush Goyal (@PiyushGoyal) 14 March 2019 The new look of the Railway station went down pretty well with most people and they took to Twitter to praise the efforts made by the Ministry of Railways and the Indian Railway Station Development Corporation. The feeling!!!

Or you can just check out these pictures here: © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter The Indian Railway Station Development Corporation (IRSDC), which is a special purpose vehicle (SPV) for revamping and developing such structures, will invest about Rs 7,500 crore, for redeveloping close to 50 railway stations across India. Simultaneously with that, they will also have a beatification drive alongside, which will entail paintings and art along the premises of the station. We're glad the Indian Railways are making an effort to revamp old stations and after airports, this was pretty much the need of the hour.
  4. Everyone has been waiting with bated breath for the return of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, since his return back to Indian soil was promised by the Pakistan Prime Minister, Imran Khan. The peace gesture has made a big impact on the current situation between the two countries and we hope the tension slowly dies away with the very kind and amicable step taken by Pakistan towards solidifying positive ties between India and Pakistan. (c)Twitter In the wake of the current tensions, while I write this, Wing Commander Abhinandan would have already reached the Wagah Border, ready to come back home to his parents who're frantically waiting to see him. But before his parents made their way to Amritsar to receive their son, they were on an Indigo flight from Chennai to Delhi and something wonderful happened in-flight! Abhinandan's parents were recognised by the passengers who'd boarded the flight with them and there was nothing less than ecstatic cheering and benevolent greetings throughout the trip, for them. (c)Twitter A video on social media has gone viral showing the passengers cheering and clapping for the parents. विà¤à¤ à¤à¤®à¤¾à¤à¤¡à¤° à¤à¤­à¤¿à¤¨à¤à¤¦à¤¨ à¤à¥ माता पिता à¤à¤¬ दिलà¥à¤²à¥ पहà¥à¤à¤à¥ तॠफà¥à¤²à¤¾à¤à¤ मà¥à¤ मà¥à¤à¥à¤¦ यातà¥à¤°à¤¿à¤¯à¥à¤ नà¥à¤à¤¿à¤¯à¤¾ तालियà¥à¤ सॠसà¥à¤µà¤¾à¤à¤¤...ðð pic.twitter.com/N9j8EskACs — Ravi Bhadoria रवि भदà¥à¤°à¤¿à¤¯à¤¾(@ravibhadoria) 1 March 2019 (c)Twitter The parents made their way to Amritsar from Delhi, once the flight landed. The Wing Commander's father Retd Air Marshal S Varthaman is a well-respected officer and his mother Shobha Varthaman is a doctor. This is surely a day of relief and pride for the parents of a courageous and valorous Wing Commander.
  5. Panjaz was invited to a South Delhi wedding and after all the comments he passed there is no way he's going to be invited to another one. After all, Dullapura ki shaadi is very different.
  6. If you're the kind of person who loves to pose and show off your #IWokeUpLikeThis face to the rest of the world, or the kind of person who just loves pouting #ForTheGram, you definitely need to hear this. Tyra Banks is all set to open Modelland, a 21,000-square-foot ticketed theme park at the Santa Monica shopping mall in 2019. The theme park comes straight out of her 2010 novel, 'Modelland' about her experiences in the modelling industry. Now she wants to share those experiences and make them accessible to everyone in a more tangible way. "Now with Modelland, I'm taking it 10 steps forward, giving people the opportunity to engage with the elusive world by opening it up to everyone, Men, women, families, all generations can come and enter this modelworld for a day, have a fun shopping experience, and an eventful meal. This will be the first of many.” Banks said in an interview with WWD. According to the WWD interview, this park is going to have: interactive entertainment around the modelling experience, curated retail which means a lot to shop, user-generated content that can be shared like new ways to pose, a place where visitors can “be the dream version of themselves” and clothing designed by Hollywood costume designers that you can wear. Sounds like a dream right?
  7. There's no end to the wedding season of the entertainment world and after Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra, Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal's larger-than-life weddings, we have someone from the television world following suit. © Twitter Kapil Sharma too tied the knot with his long-term girlfriend Ginni Chatrath and the wedding and receptions(s) were quite beautifully curtailed in Jalandhar and Mumbai. They're now planning to host their third wedding reception in the capital on the 2nd of February and the preparations are on-going as you read this; you know, because all the cities in the country need a taste of their extravaganza! © Instagram The reception is hosted by both Kapil and Ginni and it's mostly for their family members and closest friends, this time. While we wonder if PM Modi will attend the function, since he was there for both Anushka-Virat and Nick-Priyanka's respective functions, we do know that Kapil has also invited some of his politician and bureaucrat friends, the function is said to be a close knit affair and not as elaborate as the earlier functions they've hosted. © Twitter Here's a look at the invitation for the Delhi reception, on the 2nd of February. One more wedding reception for #kapilsharma and his wife in delhi ð A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Jan 31, 2019 at 2:33am PST Kapil and Ginni tied the knot on the 12th of December 2018 and had two receptions post the wedding celebrations. One was for their family members and the other one, which was hosted in Mumbai was for the entire film and television fraternity. The crème de la crème of Bollywood and the television industry was there, including Deepika and Ranvir. © Instagram While we're not sure why Kapil is having the third reception, we're truly happy for the newly-weds and wish them good faith and happiness throughout. Kapil, will continue working on his TV- show 'The Kapil Sharma Show' post the celebrations and here's hoping the show is funnier than before. Who knows, maybe the marriage will induce a special batch of humour within him. Here's hoping!
  8. Ranveer Singh pioneers 'lewks'. Now, some might say that he's OTT, but more often than not, his aesthetic packs a major punch of functionality, apart from being conspicuous. His recent all-black outfit just proved that. He stepped out wearing a mask, that legit reminded us of every Delhi guy right now struggling with the pollution and smog, but 'making it fashion' nonetheless. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Baba has always managed to kill with athleisure and his hoodie game has always been top-notch. The black sweatpants with the hoodie just delivered the right mix of 'runway-ready' and 'ready-to-chill' - something that's absolutely in right now in the hypebeast arena. Plus, who can ever go wrong with black anyway? © Viral Bhayani Coming to his shoes, we couldn't be more jealous. Those Yeezy 500 Boost Desert Rats are a pair to marvel at, and they just seem to have a design personality that mimics Ranveer's infectious, explosive energy. They cost a whopping 806 Dollars, which when converted to Indian currency comes around Rs 56,000. © Viral Bhayani © Reddit Coming to how he has accessorized, we love the simple yet classy inclusion of the statement black sunnies. Nothing else can do justice to a super cool outfit like this one here. © Viral Bhayani All we can say is, functionality FTW.
  9. That time of the year is finally here, when someone around you will suddenly start showing interest in you. People who haven't called you in months, will now want to talk to you and know how you're doing. This is not a horoscope and I am not predicting your love life. I am talking about those nosy relatives and neighbours, who don't bother about your existence the whole year, but will now call you to know your CAT percentile. The results of CAT (Common Admission Test) 2018 were announced yesterday and as many as 11 candidates have scored 100 percentile. Twitter (For Representation) While, the first position is acquired by 22-year-old IIT Kanpur graduate Rounak Majumdar, the second spot has reportedly been acquired by Abhishek Garg from Delhi who scored 99.99 percentile. Abhishek and his twin brother Anubhav garg, both cracked CAT 2018 and scored over 99 percentile; but Anubhav is 0.2 percentile behind Abhishek, making him the topper from Delhi. Abhishek and Anubhav have always been toppers in their school, the kind of students our parents want us to be friends with. Twitter (For Representation) They cracked engineering exam JEE together, joined IIT-Delhi together and now both of them have cracked CAT 2018 too. Explaining the mantra behind his success to The Indian Express, Abhishek Garg said "Repetitive mock tests is the key to success. Apart from it, hard work throughout the year with special focus to Quant section helped me a lot." The Garg brothers draw inspiration from their father, Tarun Garg, who himself is an alumnus of IIM-Lucknow and working as an executive director, marketing in Maruti Suzuki India. "The success of my father in the management field inspired us to choose the path," Abhishek added. Wikimedia Apart from their parents, they also credit their success to TIME Delhi. Anubhav, the younger brother said "I am younger by two minutes and coincidentally was just 0.2 percentile behind my brother in the CAT results. Apart from my parents, teachers in TIME Delhi helped us a lot in preparing for the examinations." Both Abhishek and Anubhav dream of pursuing MBA from IIM-Ahmedabad and suggest other aspirants to believe in self-study and sit for mock-tests.
  10. Pankaz went for a South Delhi wedding and after hearing what he has to say about all the people there we're sure he won't be invited for one ever again.
  11. Did you know all it took was marijuana to 'find inner peace' and 'be friends with everyone'? Nope, me neither, but if the police is saying so, it must be true. Basically, Delhi Police released a Press Release about arresting two people who were trying to import marijuana from the US. Pretty standard, right? Yep, but the statement in itself is so funny that it is doing the exact opposite of what was intended. It straight up sounds like a guide to smoking good pot and is like a menu card of the different variety of weed. In a press release, @DelhiPolice have shared names of imported ganja and their effects. Contagious laugh, seeking inner peace, always there for you are some of the effects. :P pic.twitter.com/ocHYvyEHjj — Hemani Bhandari (@HemaniBhandari) December 31, 2018 A very detailed (but riddled with typos) Delhi Police news release about a seizure of marijuana said to have been imported from the US. https://t.co/bWXwRS4Hk4 pic.twitter.com/aBlhwOlTnl — Steve Herman (@W7VOA) January 1, 2019 “The user of cannabis is also known as stoner.” - a line which is a part of an official police document. You can't make this stuff up. © Twitter Now comes the menu card. Police were very thorough with their investigation of this weed. In fact, they found out what each type of cannabis does. I wonder how they got such detailed information. So anyway, if you just want to laugh, you should just try 'bubba kush', but if you're looking for a deeper meaning in life and want inner peace, 'pineapple express' is the way to go! 'Alien OG' will make you laugh at your own jokes, while 'jack herer' is there to help you make friends. Even I'm confused by the last two; is it saying 'grandaddy purr' (great name, btw) will always be there for us? And, what does intimidating hot even mean? Instead of making people not smoke, this would just make anyone curious. I mean, who doesn't want inner peace? This obviously got people on Twitter talking and here's what everyone said. Asking the important question. What happens if you take Baba Kush with Alien OG? — Jayasankar (@jayasankar) January 1, 2019 Or. Is the Delhi police trying to warn people abt dangers of ganja or...ðððð — Ajay Singh (@Huskarl1986) January 1, 2019 This menu card is incomplete.

Asking for a friend. — Ankit Sharma (@ankit_sharmank) January 1, 2019 Looks like it. Looks like they composed the press release after tasting all that Ganja. — శరతౠà°à°à°¦à±à°° à°°à±à°¤à± (@SaratRouthu) January 1, 2019 Just laughing.

  12. Indian cricket faced a sad day earlier this week as left-handed opening batsman Gautam Gambhir announced his retirement from all formats of cricket. But he didn't just leave without making a mark on Indian cricket history, as he slammed a century in his first innings against Andhra Pradesh in the Ranji Trophy game, making this the last game of his 2-decade long cricket career. (c)Twitter Batting on a 92, Gambhir completed his fabulous century victory at the Feroz Shah Kotla grounds in Delhi, making this his 43rd century in first-class cricket and 64 across formats. The 3rd day of the tournament started with Elite group B tied 190/1 against Andhra Pradesh's 390, which soon turned to a 112, when Gambhir took his time to slowly knock off 8 runs, finishing his stay with 10 fours. The final day of the game is on Sunday, the 9th of December, which will also be his last ever game of cricket, before he walks out of the stadium with nothing but pride! (c)Twitter So sweet of @delhi_cricket to put this up for @GautamGambhir in his final game...formal presentation tomorrow @Wahcricketlive https://t.co/wYo8vrJimD pic.twitter.com/hIQuR9OgnJ — G. S. Vivek (@GSV1980) 8 December 2018 (c)Twitter People thronged the stadium to watch the ace cricketer finish up an even score of 112 before he got out to Mohammed Khan in the 67th over of the Delhi innings. The crowd went hysterical when he completed a remarkable century, something they can boast about in the future when they remember one of the best matches Gambhir played in his life, because it was his last. It's definitely safe to say that Indian cricket will never forget one of India's better player's amazing feat.
  13. What can I say? Comic Con always comes through, to be honest, and the fans always love it. Moreover, they always seem to take extra care of 'Game of Thrones' fans, which is basically the entire world. After managing to get Hodor to come to India, especially for the Comic Con three years ago, they've gotten another GoT star to come on board and bless the Indian fans. Vladimir Furdik, who plays the Night King, is all set to appear at the 8th edition of the convention in New Delhi next month. Talking about Comic Con Delhi, the actor said in a statement, “I am looking forward to coming back to India and visiting Delhi and meeting my fans. I have wonderful memories from my last visit to India and I am looking forward to trying out the excellent food and seeing your beautiful country again.” Comic Con India shared a video announcing this very special guest. And all the comments are of people tagging their friends left, right and centre and getting even more excited about it! Along with Vladimir Furdik, Delhi Comic Con 2018 will also feature international comic book writers and artistes like Declan Shalvey, John Layman and Peter Nguyen, along with popular Indian comic book creators such as Saumin Patel, Abhijeet Kini, Alicia Souza, Rahil Mohsin, Akshay Dhar, Vivek Goel and Aniruddho Chakraborty among others.
  14. Women's safety has forever been a concern in India, especially in New Delhi. And when reports surface about women getting molested and raped even in broad daylight, our faith only crumbles and the thought of travelling alone at night turns into a nightmarish vision for many women. However, some women have started feeling safe while travelling at night, thanks to certain people who are going out of their way to ensure that women are safe irrespective of what time it is. One such person is Praveen Ranjan, an auto driver, who commands all our respect for doing his bit to help women. Twitter Praveen Ranjan never takes fare from the women who are travelling at night. When asked about the reason, he said, "Madam main kuch nahi leta ladkiyon se itni raat ko. Unko thik se ghar pahuchana zyada zaroori hain." Praveen's story was shared by Neha Das, who said she was glad that she met him. She wrote in her post, "Yesterday was just another day in office. Finished work just in time to leave a little before 12 am. Delhi winters are here, the streets are mostly empty. While I waited for an auto outside office, this gentleman stopped. On asking the fare, he said "Madam main kuch nahi leta ladkiyon se itni raat ko. Unko thik se ghar pahuchana zyada zaroori hain." "I stood there wondering is he for real," she further wrote and I am sure everyone reading this post would have thought the same. This autowala, whom I would like to call the unsung hero, refused to take any money from Neha, but after she insisted, he took the fare without the night charges. Not all heroes wear capes, some like Praveen silently help women rebuild their trust in society and ensure their safety. We salute this unsung hero.
  15. A young bodybuilding enthusiast recently landed in the hospital after using a drug called AMP for his bodybuilding purposes. This case has yet again brought to light the dark side of enhanced bodybuilding. Steroids, which were once and rightfully used in the professional category, has seeped into the routine of rookie fitness enthusiasts. Kids no younger than 20-22 with no lifting-age at all, are going to the extent of 'whatever it takes' to look good. One such case is that of this young bodybuilding rookie from Delhi who landed himself in serious trouble after using an animal compound. A Lesson For EVERY Gullible Young Guy Looking For Shortcuts In Bodybuilding The story broke out when a family from south-west Delhi approached the Psychiatry department in one of Delhi's biggest hospitals. Parents were worried about their 21-year-old son who was slipping into depression. © Pixabay His sleep cycle was extremely disturbed; he was depressed and had terrible mood swings. After countless efforts, a very comprehensive diagnosis was run on the guy. What was revealed afterwards, rattled his parents to the bone. The young lad was addicted to a drug called 'AMP5'. Revelations followed and he disclosed that his gym trainer regularly injected him with the drug as a 'pre-workout' ritual. His gym trainer had told him that this compound will help him work out for hours without getting tired and help him build more muscle. Starting from 1ml/day, the dosage shot up to 5ml/day. Since he could see the 'gains' after using injections, he kept on increasing the dosage. He even went on to win a few local-run-of-the-mill-bodybuilding competitions while he was using this drug. What Happened When He Stopped The nightmare started when dropped off the drug. From someone who could workout in the gym for more than 3 hours, he could now barely keep himself awake for daily chores. In short- he was now addicted to AMP5. © Pubmed His system had become so habitual to its usage that it couldn't handle the sudden withdrawal. He tried his best but he could not give up taking AMP injections. Soon his family realized his drug user behaviour and reached out for medical help. Presently, he is being treated with anti-depressant medicines and stimulants. AMP 5 Is Not For Humans AMP is short for adenosine Monophosphate and is NOT meant for bodybuilding. It's a drug that's used on animals. It works as a vasodilator that helps in infusing more blood into skeletal muscles to provide increased strength for exercise. It reduces fatigue to almost zero and also helps with fat oxidation by working as a hunger suppressant. However, it is illegally administered to horses before a race to enhance their performance. In some cases, it used on horses to cure various ailments as well. AMP 5 was never designed for human use. But then, bodybuilding these days is all about experimenting with various drugs to gain an edge and not just hard work and discipline. Well, guess what, one day you might have to pay for these experiments like this 21-year-old kid. So beware!

  19. In a country when women are often pushed back from occupying top positions in their line of duty, Delhi can be proud of the latest development in the city. In the national capital, women are finally making it to the top with the Delhi Police appointing four women as its District Chiefs around the city. © Twitter Known to be one of the most unsafe cities for women in the country, this move is said to hopefully bring about a change in the scenario, no matter the challenges that exist along the path. Like the Assistant Commissioner of Delhi West district told NDTV, sensitisation will have to be the first step towards the ultimate goal. © Twitter However, before we give you any more details about what each of these superwomen wish to achieve professionally, from this position of power, let us introduce you to the four chiefs. There is Meghana Yadav from Delhi, Monika Bharadwaj from Haryana, Aslam Khan from Rajasthan, and Nupur Prasad from Bihar, who are all determined to initiate a change in the minds of men regarding women's safety. © Facebook The National Crime Records Bureau's 2017 report stated that Delhi recorded a crime rate that is twice of the national average with the maximum number of rape cases amongst the 19 major cities in the country. However, even with 4 women chiefs out of the 14 and with just 11 per cent of women being a part of the workforce, the ladies in uniform feel that though there is a long way to go, the system is improving. © Facebook Though it is indeed true that women occupying top positions do not guarantee that crimes against women will stop, the chiefs believe that their first step should be to make men realise that women deserve respect, and it must start with them. They have admitted to facing resistance from men in their work of line, while some even had to be directed on how to interact with women. While we have come a long way since the horrific Nirbhaya incident in 2012, there still remains a long way ahead for the women in our country to fully feel safe, but we're totally counting on these superwomen to change a lot of things around and make the city a better place for all, including women and children. Kudos to the Delhi Police for showing the rest of the country a way forward.
  20. Indian cities like Mumbai, Delhi, and Bengaluru have reached their breaking point as far as traffic is concerned. The three are prime examples of the huge inflow of people in search of opportunities because development has been concentrated in these parts of the nation only. This vacuum has left the cities with tens of millions of people, and no space to actually house them in a comfortable way. To counter this very issue, Uber is envisioning UberAir, its concept for urban air mobility. The company today announced the concept at the Uber Elevate Expo being held in Tokyo. It aims to launch demonstration flights in several cities in 2020 and a paid flying taxi operation by 2023. While Uber launched its Elevate programme in 2016, last year the ride-sharing company announced its intention to launch flight demonstrations of UberAir in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. Now, the company has released the first example of future routes for Uber Air flights for Delhi, Tokyo, Mumbai, Seoul, Sydney, and Taipei. The company suggests it can save up to 2 hours every day for commuters via the ambitious project. Uber will meet the country's policymakers in the coming weeks and is keen on implementing the project. © Uber By offering what it calls urban aerial ridesharing, cities across the globe over a five-year period will be able to ease out road congestion as a result of the growing population. The company is working with multiple partners to help build the aircraft with a range of 5-100kms. The aircraft is expected to maintain an altitude of 1,000-2,000 feet and should be able to do more than 100kms on a single charge. Uber is currently working with partners such as Embraer and Boeing-owned Aurora Flight Sciences to develop vehicles, and the company unveiled its first design in May. © Uber “Mumbai, Delhi, and Bengaluru are some of the most congested cities in the world, where travelling even a few kilometres can take over an hour. Uber Air offers tremendous potential to help create a transportation option that goes over congestion, instead of adding to it,” the company said. Bengaluru already has a heli-taxi service operational by the government from Electronic City to Bengaluru Airport.
  21. If you live in Delhi or Mumbai where property prices reach the skies, then you do realise that even 20 crores won't get you a sprawling farm in the cities, right? However, Justin Bieber seems to have struck gold in life, in terms of both love and property. After making things official with his lady love, he recently invested in a plus property which has left us shook. A post shared by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on Aug 15, 2018 at 4:57pm PDT The 101 acre property is located in Ontario and costs $ 5 million, which is approximately 35 crore Rupees. Coming to what the property has to offer, prepare to get very envious. It has four bedrooms and six bathrooms spread over 9,000 square feet area. © Rego Realty © Rego Realty © Rego Realty It also comes with a two storey wine room because well, what is life without some wine right? Also, it has a pool room with a view to die for. © Rego Realty © Rego Realty The kitchen and the dining area are plush white and obviously, there is a room dedicated entirely for movie watching. © Rego Realty © Rego Realty © Rego Realty Also, what will leave you gaping with surprise is that the insane property comes with a racing track, a horse barn and private lake access! Not kidding bro! © Rego Realty © Rego Realty People dream of a retirement house like this, but the 'Sorry' hitmaker seems to have bigger plans in life. Anyway who are we kidding? Chances are, our dream house in the concrete jungle would mostly be a penthouse apartment in NCR.
  22. Every year in the month of August, with the monsoon showers, comes a very unwelcomed lot of people, called the Kanwars. What should actually be a peaceful journey of Lord Shiva's devotees, Kanwar Yatra has morphed into an ugly showcase of absolute hooliganism. Disrupting traffic, illegally playing loud music and drug abuse are the usual highlights of this yearly Hindu pilgrimage. This year, though, along with the expected spectacles of menace, a group of Kanwars terrorized the city by completely destroying a car. To top this off, they eventually turned over the car on its head. According to sources, the fiasco started after the car brushed past one of the Kanwariyas who was walking in the middle of the road. The driver, believed to be a woman, luckily fled the rage-filled attack. Here's the video of the incident. It took place in Moti Nagar (New Delhi) during rush hours on Tuesday, the 7th of August. The Problem Despite having provided almost every possible amenity—partitioned walkway on the roads, halting points and even police barricading—things get out of hand every year, resulting in widespread public dismay. With the way the Kanwar cavalries move, it's not tough to guess that something unruly can happen at any given moment. Most of them are either drunk or are high on marijuana and completely violate the traffic decorum. Even in the video above, two on-scene police officers simply turn a blind eye and refuse to intervene. Why does a common tax-payer trying to reach his workplace has to deal with all this social filth? Why do the police not act? What is the problem here? The Dangerous Blend Of Religion And Patriotism In Kanwar Yatras © YouTube Another glaring thing that has very recently showed face in Kanwar Yatras is the idea of pseudo-patriotism. It's not uncommon to see these yatris carrying the Indian flag and yelling 'bharat mata ki jai' while running red lights and putting other commuters' life at risk. While carrying the flag is nothing wrong but does being patriotic give you the liberty to become a social menace? Can the slogan 'bharat mata ki jai' make you pull off violent acts of crime? Does patriotism guarantee you a license to hooliganism? We guess not, but these Kanwar Yatris surely think so.
  23. Anything can become an 'internet trend' if a bunch of people start doing it and the latest one has been done by so many freaking people, it's gained too much prominence all over the world. Obviously, I'm talking about the 'Kiki Challenge' or the 'In My Feelings Challenge' that has been attempted by at least thousands of people and I'm guessing at least half of them got injured jumping out of the car to show their undying love for 'Kiki'. So that's a success, right? As I said, the entire world is doing this challenge but people in Delhi wanted to be a little different and are now organizing a large-scale challenge where a bunch of people will come and shout 'Kiki, do you love me?' in Connaught Place, Delhi at the same time. Yes, it's 2018 and we're bringing online memes to the real world and making the older generation judge us even more. Fun times! It's happening on August 18 and it seems like there won't be a safety issue. Everyone knows the challenge is not that safe, because well, jumping out of a moving a car will never be safe. With so many safety issues, even the police had to get involved and warn people against attempting this. But, this event seems completely safe since they basically eliminated cars. It'll happen in Central Park and what harm can a bunch of people singing can do? Nothing. Right now, over 400 people are interested, but obviously, all of them won't show up. But, considering the response, looks like close to 70-80 people might just actually come to give free publicity to Drake. If the whole thing sounds familiar, it has happened before. Remember the desi internet phenomenon 'Bol na aunty aau kya?' Yep, a lot of people made the same plan and a lot of people thought it was a joke. But nope, a bunch of people showed up in CP to shout 'Bol na aunty aau kya?'

  25. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are undoubtedly one of the hottest and most talked-about couple in Hollywood as well as Bollywood right now. Every single day in their love life is moving at a speed faster than Usain Bolt. © Instagram For the longest time people have been crediting the 2017 Met Gala Awards for bringing Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas closer. But, turns out they are going strong because they've got support from The Rock. We're talking about Dwayne Johnson who wants to take the credit for Priyanka and Nick's relationship. © Wikimediia According to a report in ET online, Dwayne secretly played the matchmaker for the two and when he was asked about the two, he asked, “Are they happy?” After learning that they seem to be doing well, he smiled and jokingly said, “Well then, I take credit. 'Baywatch' and 'Jumanji'.” He further added, “I did it, yes…If they're happy.” © Twitter Did The Rock sign the two movies because he wanted to shoot with Priyanka and Nick and eventually bring them together? Of course not, this is just our weird imagination doing the talking. © Columbia Pictures From attending the 2017 Met Gala together, hanging out with each other's cousin, cycling with Nick's family to being spotted together at various important social events (Ambani pre-engagement party in Mumbai); Priyanka and Nick have been constantly making headlines and breaking the internet with their appearances. In fact, according to some reports, they were even spotted wearing matching gold rings.
