  1. On March 3, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his address to the nation, appealed to the people of India to switch off electric lights at 9 pm on Sunday i.e., today for nine minutes, and light candles or diyas, or flash torchlights from their doorsteps or balconies to mark the nationâs fight against the deadly coronavirus. PM Modi had earlier asked Indians to observe a Janata Curfew on March 22. At the time, he had urged people to express their gratitude to the frontline healthcare workers by clapping, clinking plates and spoons or ringing bells at 5 pm for five minutes. It was widely followed by the people across the country. And this diya vigil was no exception either. This time too the Indian populace including Bollywood celebrities came to their balconies with lit candles and diyas to show their solidarity in this fight against the deadly virus. Though celebrities and people of repute carried out the vigil responsibly #ArjunRampal and #GabriellaDemetriades light a candle for 9 minutes in gratitude. pic.twitter.com/ArW2lMl1La â Filmfare (@filmfare) April 5, 2020PM @narendramodi âs mother, Hira ba, also lit a diya in solidarity with the rest of India at the PMâs call for #9minutes9pm . pic.twitter.com/sukWV1TQL4 â Nistula Hebbar (@nistula) April 5, 2020In solidarity with each and every single person who is playing their part.

  2. Back when Google Pay was called Google Tez, the company seemed to be incredibly generous with its cashback-style scratch card rewards. Unfortunately, over several months, I'm sure that many of us have gotten all-too-used to seeing this familiar page: Still, earlier this week, Google released a Diwali update that incorporated a simple premise - use the app for payments, scan pictures of diyas or team up with friends to obtain one of five collectible stamps. The prize for catching them all? Rs 251 upfront, and a chance to win Rs 1 lakh. Cool. Everything seemed fine early on, of course. Thousands of Indians began to frantically grab the Rs 251 that seemed to float just out of reach - and eventually, something began to become quite obvious. As the days inched closer towards the November 1 deadline, social media across the country began to buzz with a simple question... Where Is The Damn Rangoli? As several jaded GPay users like myself guessed, Google seems to have drastically cut down the drop rate for two kinds of stamps - the rangoli and the flower. While using a bit of effort (gaming the system) might land you with a few flowers, the rangolis seem mysteriously absent. Thousands resorted to Instagram stories to plead with their followers - all that stood between them and well, a really modest prize was one lousy sticker. Assuming that the Rs 1 lakh grand prize goes to just one person, you'd have to beat over 67 million other active users. That's a 0.0000014% chance of winning. Since you're about 103 times more likely to die from drowning in a bathtub, I can comfortably say that India's losing their shit over this for the Rs 251 prize instead. Why am I not surprised? Interestingly, it seems that the obsession with Google Pay's new 'game' isn't homogenous across the country - take a look at the graph below, which charts activity on Google regarding the rangoli stamp: As you'll observe, a large portion of the GPay hype happens to be from South India. This was reflected in popular Telugu meme pages, and on desi Twitter as well: View this post on Instagram Vadu(gpay) chivariki chupinchedi matram pedha........

One user claims to have discovered the secret to grabbing these rare and elusive stamps: I got all 5 stamps. Google pay is clever enough to make this such a way that Flower comes with bill payment of 149 and above and Rangoli with mobile recharge of 149 and above. pic.twitter.com/HaJzcGINAB — Sudarshan Prabhu (@Su_darshan) October 25, 2019 Have you been able to score this stamp? Share a screenshot in the comments below, and reach out if you have an extra. For the rest of us… better luck next time. View the full article
  3. While most of us are feeling the Post-Diwali hangover and missing the festivities, there are still some brands out there that are keeping the celebration going and OnePlus is leading the bandwagon. OnePlus recently launched two new phones, OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro that have seen great responses from the consumers like any other OnePlus launch. The OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro are fantastic smartphones in every way. If you want the fastest and smoothest Android phones, these are the ones that are instantly recommendable. And starting at Rs 37,999, these two can be considered great deals which, apparently, get better now. OnePlus' Diwali Bonanza Diwali saw a huge surge in sale for both the phones, so in order to keep the momentum going, OnePlus decided to give further discounts. The sale started on October 26 and will go on till November 16. During this time, you can get up to Rs 8,000 off on the new OnePlus 7T series phone. View this post on Instagram May your light always make you stand out and dazzle. #HappyDiwali #ShotonOnePlus by @waakeupsid and @yogesh.manhas A post shared by OnePlus India (@oneplus_india) on Oct 26, 2019 at 9:33pm PDT OnePlus is offering a host of extra benefits on its latest flagship phones and customers can get up to Rs 5,500 off on the OnePlus 7T. All the combined benefits on the OnePlus 7T Pro bring down the price of this flagship by Rs 8,000. The same benefits are also applicable on the OnePlus 7 Pro. With the OnePlus 7T, you can avail a price benefit of up to Rs 2,000, thanks to the OnePlus Referral Program. The OnePlus Referral Program requires you to receive a referral code from an existing OnePlus user, thereby saving Rs 2,000 on the original price. On top of that, you can also save an additional Rs 2,000 in exchange with an old phone. View this post on Instagram Covered in our signature matte frosted glass, the OnePlus 7T exudes sophistication and elegance through confident, minimalistic design. Get it now on Amazon.in (link in bio) A post shared by OnePlus India (@oneplus_india) on Sep 30, 2019 at 10:23am PDT That's not all, if you happen to have an HDFC Bank card, you can get an extra Rs 1,500 off on the overall price. Hence, the base variant of the OnePlus 7T with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage can actually be bought for as low as Rs 32,499. OnePlus is also offering a no-cost EMI offer for the OnePlus 7 Pro and 7T Pro. If these offers don't bring back your festive spirits, there is nothing else that will work. So, keep the spirit of Diwali shopping high and grab these dealson Amazon. View the full article
  4. The internet is savage, and it has no chill. If one needs to be reminded of this very fact, all one needs to do is to be a public figure. Especially when someone as famous as Salman Khan is in the picture, with a plethora of controversies surrounding him, trolling becomes a part and parcel of their daily life. What has happened recently over Tusshar Kapoor's Diwali outfit is a testament to that. First, let's look at what Tusshar wore. © Instagram/tusshark89 Tusshar wore a super smart, ecologically sustainable kurta by Purvi Doshi, that we honestly love. However, if you look closely, the motif on the kurta triggered the trolling. © Instagram/tusshark89 Let's just say, the reference presents itself here and we don't need to explain. What followed was a hilarious, albeit rude, round of trolling. © Instagram/tusshark89 A lot of comments like the above can be seen on the original Instagram post by Tusshar Kapoor, although he had absolutely nothing to do with it. Also, as expected, meme pages were quick to react. © Instagram/sarcastic.ind Everything said and done, however, we absolutely loved what Tusshar wore. The ivory kurta with the fastenings along with a pair of relaxed pyjamas made for an amazing Diwali outfit, and the fact that it's sustainable only adds the cherry on the cake. We love it, Tusshar! As far as the trolling is concerned, let's just say that the internet has always been savage and there's nothing anyone can do about this. View the full article

  6. Diwali isn't like any other festival that Indians celebrate. Unlike the others that are celebrated only by respective communities, Diwali seems more like a celebration everyone is excited to participate in regardless of who they are, where they are and other similar factors some might consider of importance. Now, because Diwali happens to be so popular with the masses, the festival is celebrated with equal fervour even outside the country. Be it special Diwali fairs, to lighting up prominent buildings or dance fests, major countries around the world went all out to celebrate Diwali. Here are our top 5 picks of how Diwali was celebrated outside the country. 1. The United States Of America The US is home to millions of Indians who now call this place their homeland. However, regardless of their feelings of belonging, Indians as well as Americans in the US celebrate the festival of lights with a lot of warmth and zeal. Seen here, US President Donald Trump celebrated Diwali in the White House with Indian American staff, and sent his best wishes to everybody who were celebrating the festival. Even the iconic Empire State Building lit up in orange hues on the occasion of Diwali. What better way to celebrate #Diwali—the festival of lights-than with some lights of our own! Together with @FIANYNJCTorg, we'll be shining in orange tonight to celebrate. #MyDiwaliESBPhoto ð·: brunoboni/IG pic.twitter.com/gX1PE3ugg8 — Empire State Building (@EmpireStateBldg) October 26, 2019 2. England The United Kingdom is known for its sizeable Indian diaspora. So, keeping up with the demands of the festival, the country lights up to celebrate with fellow Indians on its land. The city of Leicester is known to hold one of the largest Diwali celebrations outside India, where their annual festival 'Diwali Lights Switch On' is highly popular. View this post on Instagram . City of heart! City of culture!

United Arab Emirates UAE's most popular emirate Dubai is known for all things larger than life, so how could the city let the festival of Diwali go by unnoticed? On the occasion of Diwali, Dubai saw city-wide celebrations which included fireworks, performances by Bollywood icons, festive markets, and an exclusive debut show called Haathi's Garden. 4. Malaysia Brickfields in Kuala Lumpur, also known as Little India had a stellar show of lights and fireworks on the occasion of Diwali. With the entire street dressed in twinkling lights, and an incredible show of fireworks that bought the entire place to a standstill was surely the highlight. View this post on Instagram Happy Diwali ð¥ð¥ð¥ A post shared by Jarell Kumar (@jarellkumar) on Oct 26, 2019 at 9:48am PDT 5. Australia Another country that pretty much doubles up as the home turf for a ton of Indians, also saw a remarkable Diwali celebration. The Melbourne Diwali Festival fireworks were surely mesmerizing.

  7. It seems obvious that Aarav will be a spitting image of his father, Akshay Kumar, but sometimes, the resemblance between the father-son duo is really uncanny. © Viral Bhayani Especially when we consider the way that they dress. At Amitabh Bachchan's Diwali party this year, both of them turned up in what can only be described as quintessential Indian outfits that are worthy of a strong father-son twinning moment. Where Akshay is in a kurta that is fairly modern and has a number of contemporary touches to it, Aarav was seen in a kurta set that had a very antique appeal to it, something that Akshay would have worn a decade or two ago. © Viral Bhayani That's not to say that what Aarav is wearing is by any way outdated. Rather, he seems to be more appropriately dressed for the occasion. The thing with most Indian ethnic wear for men is that they age really well, and do not really get outdated, as long as you take care of them properly. © Viral Bhayani Coming to Akshay's kurta, it is a masterpiece in itself. The pearly white embroidery works really well against the baby pink base, and has a rather understated charm to it. That said, the kurta is not at all simplistic and has been constructed really tastefully. Aarav's kurta, on the other hand, is a very tasteful classic piece of traditional Indian kurtas. Again, on a base of baby pink, we see some really exquisite gold and silver zari work. © Viral Bhayani And can we just add that Twinkle Khanna looks rather elegant and classy in the traditional suit? That's one way of coordinating your outfits for any occasion. Fashion goals for the family, anyone? View the full article
  8. Taking care of your skin post Diwali can be tough. However, if you do want to salvage your skin post all the Diwali parties and the exposure to pollution, a regular grooming routine won't suffice. So, if you want to take extra care of your face with a regime that rids you of problems like acne, dark circles and chapped lips, here are a few beauty products that can help you fill in the gaps with skin troubles. 1. A Good Cleanser © MensXP You need to start your day with a good cleanser. Also, don't forget to use it twice a day. Once in the morning and once before sleeping. A cleanser is great for cleaning out dirt from your pores and keeping the bacteria away that results in a pimple-free skin. This will be especially great in weeding out all the pollutants that you've been exposed to. You can go for a face wash that suits your skin type. Try MensXP Mud Natural Face Wash With Amazonian White Clay & Lemon. __ECOMPRODUCT__41__ 2. Lip Balm © MensXP The lip balm has no gender. Also, it is a universally acknowledged fact that no one wants to kiss a pair of chapped lips. I'm sure you secretly agree with this too. This leaves us to this conclusion: your lips need a balm. Try Arata Zero Chemical Lip Balm. __ECOMPRODUCT__105__ 3. A BB Cream © MensXP A BB cream is instrumental in clearing your face in times of crisis. Whether it's a hickey on the neck that you need to hide before or a pimple or even dark circles for that matter! This product upon generous use can conceal it all and also nourish your face too. Try MensXP Mud BB cream SPF 15 With Old Rose Clay. __ECOMPRODUCT__91__ 4. Moisturiser © MensXP Always remember to lock in the moisture by lathering up cream on your face. You don't want your skin to be dry and scratchy post the Diwali season. Try Ayca Oudh Wood Body Lotion. __ECOMPRODUCT__250__ 5. An Essential Oil © MensXP Take two-three drops of essential oil for your face and spread it all over. This will rejuvenate your skin cells and help them reach the max glowing potential of your skin. Try Frankincense Essential Oil. __ECOMPRODUCT__251__
  9. As Delhi gears up to celebrate Diwali this Sunday, not everyone's exactly in a mood to celebrate the festival amidst smoke and noise. © Reuters; According to the Chest Research Foundation in Pune, a single phuljhadi contains as much smoke as 74 cigarettes. Keep it up, lady. While there are several people who can't get enough of their laxmi bombs, phuljadis, chakris, rockets and more, there's definitely a subset of Delhiites who, like the thousands of terrified animals in the city, want to find some peace and quiet instead. © Reuters; According to the Indian Journal of Plastic Surgery, an average of 1373 patients attended a single government hospital in the capital to treat emergency burns during Diwali's three major days. Desperate times call for desperate measures - so we've decided to make a plan to celebrate a noiseless Diwali by seeking refuge where most people wouldn't - the mall. 1. Preparation © Reuters; Wow, he really looks like he's enjoying himself. Honestly, there's not a whole lot you can do to prepare for the incoming auditory onslaught - unless you live in an underground bunker, we suggest that you temper the midnight assault of crackers and fireworks by getting together your mates and celebrating with a drink or two or several. The longer you can stay asleep, the better - in any case, Sunday is a dry day, so make the most of your Saturday night. 2. Brunchtime With any luck, you'd have crashed hard and woken up somewhere in the late morning - presumably with the sound of nearby celebrations and/or pujas, depending on how religious your neighbours are. No time to waste - we've picked DLF Promenade, Vasant Kunj as our Diwali getaway. © Elle It's large, full of distractions and even has a massive Diwali mela with prizes to win if you're interested in shopping, but best of all, you're likely to not face too much in terms of crowds. © Zomato/Smoke House Deli After that long night, it's not a bad idea to head to Smoke House Deli and consult their extensive all-day breakfast menu to take care of that pesky hangover. 3. Afternoon This is when we suggest that you take it easy and enjoy a stroll around the mall. While I personally consider window shopping its own reward, you also have the option of grabbing a novel from Om Book Shop and finding the nearest cafe. © DforDelhi There's also an art installation at DLF Promenade's outdoor area, The Hub, where you'll find renown artist Prasun Majumdar's work depicting scenes from the Ramayana - well worth checking out. 4. Evening © PVR Cinemas/Nearbuy Soon enough you'll be tired of strolling around the place, but fortunately for us, the mall happens to have one of the largest cinema theatres in Delhi-NCR, run by PVR. Before grabbing dinner, take a detour to the second floor box office, and choose from one of the late night shows - we suggest that you take the 10:30 Joker show, or the 10:50 show for Saand Ki Aankh - there's little else to watch other than Housefull 4 and Made In China, and well… I wouldn't exactly call them worthy of their ticket prices. Why a late show? Because once you finally exit the theatre, it'll be long past bedtime for cracker-happy kids, and your ride home will be just as peaceful as the day you've had. Just make sure to carry your face mask with you - we can't really do anything about all the smoke.
  10. We all have faced the ugly wrath of pollution, especially during Diwali. And no matter how many times ever you try to keep your hair neat, it ends up looking unkempt after a point of time. Proper care is a must during and after Diwali and it's necessary that you take extra measures for that. Here are 5 simple ways you can protect your hair: 1. Keep A Short Routine Ready Pollution can leave your scalp dry and so you need a basic routine in place. The best way to battle this is by keeping a mild cleanser ready for your hair that's made with natural ingredients and steers clear of sulfate. Plus, a hot oil massage also goes a long way. This routine is a perfect fit for your hair. __ECOMPRODUCT__249__ 2. Don't Skip The Conditioner A hair care routine is incomplete without a conditioner. It takes care of the moisture quotient in your hair and doesn't make your hair oily. Take a dime-sized amount and apply it all over your hair, leaving the scalp region. Wash it off after 2-4 minutes. This method helps maintain the natural nutrients of your hair. © iStock 3. A Champi Is A Must Champi prepares you from the ugly wrath of pollution during Diwali. You can get a hair massage at home or to go to a salon. Oils like Bringaraj and Hibiscus are known to have medicinal properties. Apply the oil directly on the scalp and massage it. Make this a part of your routine and shield your hair from the pollutants. © iStock 4. Take A Steam Post-Diwali, one of the best remedies you can try out for your hair is taking steam. A weekly steam bath can easily replenish the lost moisture for your hair and any deep-rooted particles stuck in your hair. Take a hot towel and wrap it around your hair for a while. The results are unbeatable! © iStock 5. Use Aloe Vera As A After Remedy Aloe vera gel is a universally accepted solution for a grooming routine and is quite a useful remedy post Diwali. Then be it skincare or haircare, this method goes a long way. Take aloe vera gel and add a few drops of tea tree oil to it. Apply it directly on your scalp and wash it off after a while. This will restore the strength of your hair. © iStock
  11. Shah Rukh Khan proved once again that he is the one true king of Bollywood as he hung out with 120 acid attack survivors at his Meer Foundation. Sharing the group picture on Instagram, the actor wrote, “Thank u @meerfoundationofficial for the initiative of #ToGetHerTransformed and best of luck and health to the 120 ladies whose surgeries are underway. And all the docs who r helping us with this noble cause.” View this post on Instagram Thank u @meerfoundationofficial for the initiative of #ToGetHerTransformed and best of luck and health to the 120 ladies whose surgeries are underway. And all the docs who r helping us with this noble cause. A post shared by Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) on Oct 25, 2019 at 3:13am PDT Fans appreciated his gesture and flooded Twitter with their appreciation for the actor, going on to tag him as the 'legend' and 'king of hearts' for his good deed. Meer foundation was founded by Shah Rukh in 2013 and named after his father Meer Taj Mohammed Khan. For the uninitiated, it works for the betterment of acid attack victims, right from taking care of their treatment to providing them jobs and other facilities. This year, SRK was in Delhi with his son AbRam to celebrate Diwali. Speaking to the media, he said that he plans to take him around to show how Diwali is celebrated in the national capital. On the work front, after Zero Shah Rukh has promised his fans that he would announce his next venture on his birthday which is on November 2. We can't wait, what about you?
  12. It's almost Diwali and it is also the time to host a house party but sometimes you need a playlist to get you in the festive mood. Searching for songs can be tedious especially if you use multiple streaming applications. We decided to dig up some Diwali-themed playlists on Spotify, Gaana, and Apple Music so that you don't have to. Some of these playlists are low-key while some will get you in the party mood. 1. Apple Music © MensXP Apple Music lets people share their own playlists and this time we got some A-list celebs curating Diwali playlists on the platform. You can listen to music curated by Kareena Kapoor Khan, Badshah Shraddha Kapoor, D. Imman amongst others. If you aren't into Bollywood music and want something more international, Major Lazer has also curated a playlist for the occasion of Diwali. 2. Gaana © MensXP If you are a Gaana user, the streaming app has also curated a playlist to get your party started. You can click here to get started with songs by Arijit Singh, Vishal Dadlani, Guru Randhawa and many others. Just hit the link and the playlist will start playing on your app automatically. 3.

The “Diwali Bash” playlist is live now and is ready to stream on any of the devices you own. Wish you all a Happy Diwali and do let us know how these playlists worked for your party in the comments below.
  13. Hardik Pandya sure knows how to turn heads with his eccentricities and the aberrant sartorial choices he makes. From a pyjama set that's worth over one and half lakh rupees, to wearing a watch worth Rs 80 lakh, while recuperating from a surgery, still being in the hospital, the man has done it all. © Instagram/hardikpandya93 However, he is not really known for pulling off an outfit that people would consider “classy” or elegant. Sure, he was something beyond this world when he walked the ramp for designer Amit Aggarwal, but that's a different case altogether. © Instagram/hardikpandya93 Subtlety is clearly not Hardik's strong suit - that distinction goes to his elder brother, Krunal. However, this time around, Hardik changed the tune, and stepped out in one of the most elegant outfits that we have seen this year on a cricketer. In fact, we have to say, one of the classiest outfits this year, period. © Viral Bhayani Hardik attended Mukesh Ambani's Mumbai Indians' Diwali bash in a masterfully crafted bandi from Shantanu and Nikhil, and boy oh boy, did he look good. © Instagram/hardikpandya93 The bandi is masterfully designed and crafted, using an embroidered fabric with floral motifs and design. The appeal of the bandi is further accentuated with the two sets of riveted leather strips that run horizontally across the front. © Viral Bhayani The cherry on top of the sartorial cake that this ensemble is the intricately designed chained brooch that Hardik is wearing as an accessory. © Instagram/hardikpandya93 Speaking of accessories, he is again seen wearing his Patek Phillipe Nautilus Chronograph, worth Rs 80 lakh to the party. The watch, coupled with the tinted sunglasses, completed the look. © Viral Bhayani Hardik's decision to pair the bandi with a fairly simple kurta shirt, brown linen trousers and a pair of tan monk straps was a wise one. When you already have a statement piece such as the bandi, you don't really need much else to make one cracker of an ensemble. © Viral Bhayani Plus, given the eccentric manner in which Hardik usually accessorises, in this instance his watch, his jewellery and sunglasses, anything else that could potentially draw attention, would have been a tad bit too much. © Viral Bhayani All we can really say is that we're actually kind of digging this outfit. Spot on, Hardik! A great ensemble indeed.

  15. `Diwali is the best time to go on a shopping spree and splurge money on things you've always wanted to buy. Thanks to the on-going sale on both Flipkart and Amazon, there's a lot of discount across various products. You can check out our gift guides for budget phones, headphones, speakers, etc. if you're into that. But now, we're going to be taking a look at the best smart TVs that you can buy this festive season and save money on some of the best TVs out there. Mi LED TV 4X Series © Xiaomi It's only been a couple of years since Xiaomi first started selling TVs in India and they've already sold millions of them in the country, becoming one of the biggest players in the business. The Mi LED TV 4X is their new series of premium TVs that comes with all the bells and whistles. All TVs in this series have a 4K panel and they come in a bunch of different sizes. These are running Android 9 Pie-based PatchWall OS. And unlike their old TVs, the new Mi LED 4X series TVs also come with Netflix support, which is great. So if you're in the market for a 4K TV, the Mi LED 4X TVs which start at Rs 24,999 are the best options to consider. TCL 43-inch 4K TV © Amazon TCL's smart TVs are available at really good prices this festive season.

OnePlus TV Q1 © Amazon In case you missed it, OnePlus also entered the television market this year with the launch of the new OnePlus TV Q1 and the Q1 Pro. Contrary to what everyone thought, the TVs turned out to be expensive and the Q1 starts at Rs 69,900. It's not exactly cheap but it does offer a premium experience. It has a 65-inch 4K HDR panel and runs on OxygenOS that's based on Android Pie. You can learn more about the OnePlus TV right here.

  16. Our skin is constantly under attack from the pollution and dirt, and at no point in the year does it get as bad as it does during Diwali.

Our MensXP Mud Special Edition Box contains 3 brilliant products that will transform your skin. __ECOMPRODUCT__192__ MensXP Mud Natural Face & Body Lotion © MensXP Post days of bingeing in the days leading up to Diwali, our skin always ends up paying the price for all the processed sugar and ghee in everything, and the result is ghastly breakouts and acne.

  17. Arjun Kapoor's style evolution is truly impeccable. Of late, his sartorial sensibilities have made him the fashion icon in his own rights. From wearing skirt-like jogger pants to opting for 'used' sneakers, he carries literally everything with a nonchalant attitude. He has been making the headlines with his unique fashion game and we truly cannot stop admiring it. View this post on Instagram The T.U.X.E.D.O. Thank you @colstonjulian for being in your element & making me feel like a BOSS !!! A post shared by Arjun Kapoor (@arjunkapoor) on Sep 28, 2019 at 7:55am PDT Recently, for Malaika Arora's birthday bash, Arjun made quite a statement in a shirt that's actually hand painted and if you look at it closely, you would see that this shirt is fitted with lights. Looks like, Diwali came early for AK. Here, take a look: View this post on Instagram Army of love ⤠#MallaikaArora #arjunkapoor A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Oct 22, 2019 at 5:24pm PDT Arjun here is wearing a shirt that's customised by 'Dust Of Gods'. The brand makes intricate work of art that lives out loud and elevates your style like none other. Every piece that's designed goes under a rigorous production process and then adding an oomph factor to your style so you turn heads as you stride. © Viral Bhayani Even Arjun's shirt is a clear portrayal of his fun persona and we love the offbeat approach this shirt has with quotes, checks and the lights especially. Must say, you are scoring high on the fashion charts. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani For his outfit, he looked dapper in distressed grey jeans teamed with classic Chelsea boots. © Viral Bhayani It looks like, Malaika sure has an influence on his fashion sense and we actually love it. Keep up the game!
  18. Ayushmann Khurrana has upped his fashion game by experimenting with some insane trends to serve us with killer outfits this year, courtesy his stylist, Isha Bhansali. The best thing about these outfits is the fact that they're very easy to cop, and are just perfect for Diwali. You could take inspiration and wear these to your next taash party. We're not saying that you've to necessarily buy the exact same look head-to-toe like the actor, but there are plenty of stellar pieces that can easily help you achieve his look. So, read ahead as we decode his looks: © Instagam- Isha Bhansali 1. This lavender kurta pyjama with embroidered vest looks perfect together. We love how great this look is for a day-party. The idea is to go for subtle colours but also layer-up the outfit so it looks well put together. Here's how you can create your own: __ECOMPRODUCT__234__ __ECOMPRODUCT__27__ __ECOMPRODUCT__64__ © Instagam- Isha Bhansali 2. Here, Ayushmann has worn a quirky blazer, a plain t-shirt, baggy cargos and white sneakers to complete this look. This is the kind of outfit that's perfect for a Diwali taash party where you want to wear something casual and yet different to break the monotony. Blazers don't have to always come in solids, patterned blazers have great structure and look stellar if paired with chunky sneakers. Again, layering is key here. Here's how you can create your own: __ECOMPRODUCT__235__ __ECOMPRODUCT__236__ © Instagam- Isha Bhansali 3. This monochrome outfit looks rather simple to cop, but everything lies in its fine detailing. This will work really well for you if you're not someone who likes to experiment. So, Ayushmann here is wearing a crisp white trench, along with black joggers and a plain white t-shirt. This is one outfit pairing that might not strike you right off the bat but looks great when put together and would work well for a pre-Diwali, post-work, drinks party. Here's how you can create your own: __ECOMPRODUCT__237__ __ECOMPRODUCT__238__ __ECOMPRODUCT__108__ © Instagam- Isha Bhansali However, if you don't mind wearing kurtas, then this look is perfect for you. Asymmetrical kurtas will take your kurta game a notch higher just like they're complimenting Ayushmann in this picture. Here's how you can create your own: __ECOMPRODUCT__239__ __ECOMPRODUCT__195__
  19. Diwali is around the corner and along with bringing in the festivities with mithai and taash, there's also a lot of love in the air. Speaking of the air, we hope you have made up your mind to have a cracker-free Diwali this time. Because not only does the air quality index dip fatally, making it almost next to impossible for us to breathe normally, it also creates quite a havoc for the animals around us. © Petribe Now, if you have a pet, you know exactly what I mean. Noise pollution has a deep psychological impact upon them, which is irrevocable. The best thing to do this Diwali is to take care of your four-legged (including street dogs) so they're not living in fear the entire evening while everyone is having fun. It's especially tough for street dogs because they have nowhere to go while being subjected to fireworks around them. © Times Now So, if you're looking for a solution to take care of your furry friends, here are five things you can do to ensure their safety. (1) Make Sure You're Around If you have a pet at home, they feel a lot more relieved if someone they're close to is around them. It gives them assurance and safety, which dials down their anxiety during the cracker outburst. So, in case you have plans to head out, do it towards the end of the peak time. © BCCL (2) Close All Doors And Windows And Draw The Curtains Pets have a heightened sense of hearing which can mess their behavioural pattern up if they're not used to loud sounds and noises. It's best to close all your doors and windows and draw the curtains so the impact of the noise is minimal. © BCCL (3) Give Shelter To Street Dogs If you see any street dog trembling in fear, give them temporary shelter, like you would when it's pouring outside. They are used to life on the streets, but loud cracker noises are alien to them too and they fear it as much as your pet does. © BCCL (4) Get In Touch With Local NGOs Local NGOs have figured a way to help street dogs out. For instance, an initiative called 'Let There Be Light' by the 'We Exist' team is making reflective collars for street dogs so people can spot them and probably not burst crackers around them at night. They're useful on other occasions too, when it's dark to see street dogs sleeping on the road. © thenewsminute (5) Take Charge In Case Of An Emergency If in case your dog can't take the noise and starts behaving out of the ordinary, then it's best to be ready to drive them to the vet. The vet will figure out a way to help them relax. There are 24-hour vet hospitals in every city, so locate one in yours and keep the number handy, in case things go wrong. © BCCL While these are pointers to have a safe Diwali for your pet, it's best to lay off crackers and ask others to do so as well. While crackers make the evening more joyous, they cause more harm than good, not just for us, but our four-legged too.
  20. It's the festive season, so it's probably one of the best times to go ham on shopping and finally clear your cart. If you're thinking of gifting gadgets like fitness trackers, headphones, smartphones and the likes, we already have you covered. But we all have at least one friend who spends a lot of time in front of a TV playing video games. Well, this list of the best gaming consoles will surely light up their Diwali. Sony PlayStation 4 © Pexels Yes, we already know the PS5 is coming. But that's not happening until the end of next year, so it's still a good time to get your gamer friend a PS4. In fact, PS4 is at its cheapest right now, so we think it's the best time to buy one. Sony's Days Of Play limited edition PS4 is now available for just Rs 26,990 on Amazon. It's an incredible deal mainly because it's a limited edition console and has 1TB storage. In case you don't want a limited edition console, then you can also buy the normal version of the console with three games for just Rs 27,990. You'll get God Of War, Uncharted 4 and Horizon Zero Dawn bundled with it. If you were to buy them separately, it'll cost you over Rs 30,000. Awesome deal, right? Xbox One X © Pexels If your friend is more of an Xbox person, then you can always go for the new Xbox One X with 1TB storage for just Rs 29,990. It's a Gears 5 bundle, so you'll also get the new Gears 5 game for free. Gears 5 is one of the best titles in the franchise and you can read our review right here. If you don't want to spend too much, then you can also pick up an Xbox One S. It's comparatively cheaper and you get two controllers instead of one, for just Rs 19,990. That's a kickass deal considering the fact that the Xbox controllers don't come cheap. The Xbox One S is still a very capable console and you can also use it to watch 4K content. Nintendo Switch © Pexels If your gamer buddy has always wanted to buy the Nintendo Switch, now is the best time to get him one because it's available for just Rs 20,799. We haven't seen the price so low in India before, so you might want to grab it before it's sold out. The Switch has a lot of cool games now and we recently reviewed Overwatch, which is, again, awesome! You can also check out the more affordable Nintendo Switch Lite. It's a toned-down version of the Nintendo Switch and has limitations of its own. The Switch Lite is available for just Rs 16,099 right now. It's, however, worth pointing out that you won't get a warranty and no after-sales support for both the Switch consoles since they're not available in India. Accessories Controller © Pexels Console games, especially the multiplayer ones, are best enjoyed with friends, so you might want to pick up a controller as well. There aren't a lot of deals on controllers right now, but you can still get one for as low as Rs 3,599. As for the PS4, you can get the Dualshock 4 controller for the same price i.e. Rs 3,599. Corsair HS50 headset A good headset can change the gaming experience and take it to the next level. So a stereo gaming headset is also something that you must consider. We think the Corsair HS50 headset is worth picking up, and it is currently available at a discounted price of Rs 2,999.
  21. Figuring out the right gift for Diwali can be a little tiring task. We've already made a bunch of lists if you're looking to spend on tech items. But if you don't want to spend on things like smartphones, headphones, or gaming console, then you might want to look into Bluetooth speakers. There are a ton of Bluetooth speakers out there, so choosing the right one can, again, be a little overwhelming. But we did the hard work of figuring out which ones are worth your money. So, here are some Bluetooth speakers that are worth buying or gifting this Diwali season. 1 JBL GO Portable Speaker © Amazon JBL is a popular player in the audio space and they have a lot of Bluetooth speakers on offer. JBL's most affordable speaker in this space is the JBL Go. It's a portable speaker that comes with 5 hours of playtime. The speaker comes with JBL's signature sound, so you can count on the quality. The speaker also comes with a noise-canceling speakerphone and a long-press button to activate Google Assistant or Siri. 2. JBL Flip 3 © Amazon You may have heard of the JBL Flip 3 Bluetooth speaker because these ones are very popular. They look incredible and have great quality, thanks to the Dual external passive Bass radiators. One of the best things about this speaker is that it comes with IPX7 certification for waterproof. This speaker has 10 hours of playtime, and it's really worth the money. 3. Ultimate Ears Wonderboom © Amazon Ultimate Ears' Wonderboom packs a lot of punch for a speaker of its size. A newer version of this speaker is also available, but that one is quite expensive. The Ultimate Ears Wonderboom delivers great audio output with crisp quality. It comes in a bunch of colors and also has IPX7 waterproof certification. The UE Wonderboom is great for listening to music when you're on the go because this one comes with a playtime of 10 hours. 4. Saregama Carvaan © Amazon Saregama Carvaan has become a lot more popular over the past couple of years mainly due to its unique design. It looks like a retro radio but it comes with modern features like Bluetooth support, USB port, radio, and app support. It also comes with a bunch of pre-loaded songs depending on the version you're getting. It's a great product for gifting.
  22. If you've been wondering what to gift this Diwali, we might just have the answers. If you are looking to gift gadgets this season, the number of options may just overwhelm you. Sometimes you have an idea about what to gift, but don't necessarily know which model or brand to get since there are so many options. Whether you are looking for a new power bank, a new smartwatch or even new earphones, we've picked out the best gadgets you can buy this season. AirPods © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla AirPods continue to be one of the most popular wireless earphones to gift and Apple recently updated them with new features. It not only comes with a wireless charging case, but also gets a new chip for better phone calls. If you've been wanting to buy AirPods, this could be the best time to find it on sale. You can read more about the new AirPods in our official review here. If you are not an Apple user and are looking for alternatives, we've done an entire feature on best Bluetooth headphones to gift this Diwali. An MP3 player © BCCL MP3 players are not entirely dead as they have now evolved with better sound output and also convenience features. If you want to use AirPods, you can always get the new iPod touch for a seamless experience. If you want a more heavy-duty MP3 player, you can get the FiiO M6 HIRes music player. It supports all audio formats and can also double up as a DAC for your computer. To know more about the FiiO M6, read our full review here. Wired Earphones © MensXP Not everyone likes the wireless experience and that statement is true for real audiophiles. While there are many cheap options available, if you are looking for the best, we recommend the 1More Triple Driver earphones or the Quad Driver earphones by the same brand. It comes in a very premium box and delivers the best sound experience we've heard on any IEM this year. You can use these with the FiiO M6 player or any smartphone that supports Hi-Res audio. Kindle © MensXP Getting a Kindle for someone is probably the best way to encourage them to get back to reading. Most of the gadgets on this list are a way of distraction, whereas the Kindle is not only a great gadget, but it can also be educational. The Kindle Oasis or the Paperwhite are often available on discount on Amazon. It helped me get back to reading books and you can read about the full experience here. A Power bank © Anker, Youtube_AndroidDeo A power bank is one of the most essential accessories for your battery-powered gadgets. They can charge up your smartphone, fitness bands and sometimes even a laptop. Not all power banks are the same and many have now evolved to offer fast charging speeds. We recommend the Realme and the Anker PowerCore Select power banks to fast charge your devices. The Realme power bank offers power delivery (PD) charging for devices that support it, while the Anker power bank offers fast charging via its Power IQ technology. An Apple Watch © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla If your loved one already has an iPhone, the Apple Watch Series 5 is the perfect companion gadget you can gift them this Diwali. The smartwatch is capable of managing notifications, has built-in GPS, tracks physical activity, heart rate and has a more responsive Siri experience. It is currently the world's most accurate smartwatch and now comes with an always-on display. If the Apple Watch is a little out of your budget, you can always look at these awesome fitness trackers as gifting options. Tile Mate © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Tile Mate is one of those gadgets that you may not know is useful until you use it. If you or someone you know often forget your keys or any other possession, the Tile Mate is a great gadget to gift. The Tile Mate is a very handy thing to have if you tend to forget your belongings. It can be used to locate your phone as well. You can read more about the Tile Mate here A Netflix Subscription © Unsplash Every year we recommend gifting a Netflix subscription to someone who loves to watch movies and TV shows and this year it has become more relevant. Netflix is now supported natively on many affordable Smart TVs and it is the perfect gift to get them started. You can gift a yearly subscription which can be used to watch some awesome shows on the platform.
  23. Fitness trackers are probably the ones that come to your mind when you think about gifting tech items. Not just for Diwali, New Year is also just a couple of months away and so you might want to buy or gift an activity tracker to someone who wants to get in shape. When it comes to fitness trackers, there are a ton of different options to choose from. So here are the best fitness trackers which we think are worth your money - 1. Xiaomi Mi Band 4 © Amazon Mi Band is, without a doubt, one of the most popular fitness bands out there. It's known for getting the job done without any burning a huge hole in your pocket. The latest version, i.e., the Mi Band 4 not just brings you all the basic features, but it also brings some new ones like a color display. Although the overall design of Mi Band 4 is more or less similar to the old ones, it still looks and feels fresh. It also tracks all the basic metrics and supports heart rate tracking as well. Mi Bands are also known for their incredible battery life and this one is no exception. Overall, the Mi Band 4 is a really good option for Rs. 2,299. 2. Amazfit GTS © Amazfit The Amazfit GTS has been making rounds on the internet and has turned out to be a really good fitness tracker. One of the main reasons behind its popularity is that it looks like an Apple Watch. Everything from its design, the watch face, etc. resembles Apple Watch, thereby making it a go-to option for a lot of people. That being said, the Amazfit GTS is a really good watch and it can track all the basic metrics very well. It's got a great display, has water resistance, a lot of sensors to track more than just the basic metrics, really good battery life, and more. It's a great option if you can spend up to Rs. 10,000. 3. Apple Watch Series 3 © YouTube/ Apple If you have an iPhone, then we highly suggest you spend some money on the Apple Watch. Now that the Series 5 is out, the Series 3 is available at a handsome price and it's still very capable hardware. We already know how useful an Apple Watch can really be when it comes to fitness, so you can't really go wrong with this one. There's also an LTE variant of the watch, which lets you use it without having to keep your iPhone around. Apple Watch has a ton of other features, and you can read all about it in our full review right here. The Apple Watch Series 3 starts at Rs. 17,999, and it's a no brainer if you have an iPhone. 4. Fitbit Versa © Amazon A fitness tracker list is incomplete if it doesn't have a Fitbit tracker. The Fitbit community is so active and engaging that it makes fitness tracking an effortless feat. You can add and interact with other friends and community members who have a Fitbit tracker and compete with them to hit your daily goals. Fitbit Versa is essentially a watch that also happens to be a good tracker. It's got a lot of good features, making it a really good fitness tracker. And if you don't like Fitbit Versa's design, then you can simply go for the Fitbit Charge 3, which costs more or less the same.
  24. It's that time of the year when you might want to splurge on a new smartphone and call it a festive season shopping. 2019 has been an exciting year for smartphones, so there are a lot of options to choose from irrespective of the budget. Well, in case you're looking to keep your expenses in check and want to go for a budget phone, then here are the ones which we think are worth buying this festive season - 1. Redmi Note 8/ Note 8 Pro © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Xiaomi has been the top player when it comes to budget phones for quite some time now, and this year they've launched a lot of good phones. More recently for the festive season, the company has launched the new Redmi Note 8 and the Redmi Note 8 Pro. If you're not willing to spend more than, say, Rs 10,000 or Rs 15,000, then you simply can't go wrong with either of these phones. While the Redmi Note 8 brings a quad-camera setup, Snapdragon 665 SoC and a 4,000 mAh battery, all under Rs 10,000. If you a bit more money to spend, then simply go with the Redmi Note 8 Pro which brings a quad-camera setup with a 64MP Samsung GW1 sensor, the new Helio G70T processor with up to 8GB RAM and a 4,500 mAh battery. 2. Realme 5/ 5 Pro © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Realme has also launched a ton of phones this year and the company's latest offering in the budget range i.e., Realme 5 and the Realme 5 Pro are some of the best budget phones we tested this year. They both have a quad-camera setup and have a really cool design. You get a massive 5,000 mAh battery with the Realme 5, and a 48MP camera and support for 20-Watt VOOC 3.0 charger in the box with the Realme 5 Pro. In terms of the specs, both the Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro seems pretty compelling for the price. Realme 5 is powered by Snapdragon 665 SoC whereas the Realme 5 Pro is powered Snapdragon 712 SoC and comes with up to 8GB of RAM. You can read our full review of the Realme 5 Pro right here. 3. Samsung Galaxy M30s © YouTube/ Techbar The new Samsung Galaxy M30s is also a great option if you don't want to spend too much on a phone. It looks sleek and the AMOLED display on the front also looks absolutely gorgeous. The phone also sports a triple camera setup at the back which includes a 48MP sensor. However, the highlight of the phone has got to be the massive 6,000 mAh battery at the back. This is a great phone if you want to gift it to, say, your parents. 4. Poco F1 © MesnXP/ Akshay Bhalla Yes, there are a lot of rumors about the launch of Poco F2, but we're not sure if it's happening at all. In the meantime, if you want to buy a new phone right now, then the original Poco F1 is still a surprisingly very good phone. The phone is now available for just Rs 14,599, and it's just a no brainer at that price. You can read our review of the phone right here.
