  1. There are strong guys, there are animals, and then you have the Russians. Well, everyone who follows strength sports like Powerlifting or Strongman competitions knows that when the Russians arrive, they mean business. Konstantin Konstantinovs was one such powerlifting legend and was one of the strongest men to have walked the face of the Earth. © Twitter His nickname was the 'Kalashnikov' which means a type of sub-machine gun made in Russia. He held the raw world deadlift record of 426 kilos and was a pure old-school guy. No fancy equipment, no fancy stuff, nothing. Only pure aggression and madness! He used to lift weights like they owed him money and were avoiding him and it looked like the weights were trembling in fear when he used to lift them. Here is another video of his record raw lift of 426 kilos. Whenever he used to lift, it used to be a show, and people used to come to just watch him lift. He was a pure legend in every sense. Along with being a competitive powerlifter, he worked as a personal bodyguard in Russia. There is a rumour floating around on the internet that his death was due to a street fight which led to him being stabbed and killed. © YouTube Though, as of now, it is just a rumour, there is a high chance is it true for two possible reasons; number one, being a bodyguard is a dangerous job and number two, it is Russia. In Konstantin, the world has lost a legend. He was a strong and intimidating man and someone people highly looked up to due to his personality. I would like to end my tribute with one of his quotes: "..if you feel that you can lift the record today, never postpone it for tomorrow. Tomorrow may just not come." RIP big man.

  2. In case you missed the news, Disney announced its streaming service in the US last week called Disney+. It'll have content from Disney Studios, Pixar, Lucasfilm, Marvel Studios, National Geographic, to name a few. Yes, that includes all the Marvel superhero and Star Wars movies. As expected, Disney+ is not coming to India, however, Disney will route all the original content created for Disney+ along with its movie library to Indian audiences through Hotstar. That's right, Hotstar in India will host all the Disney+ content, and it's also planning to localize Disney+ movies and shows by dubbing, or by adding subtitles in Indian languages, including Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. © Disney Disney's plan to route the Disney+ content instead of launching a separate streaming service does seem like the logical thing to do. Hotstar, a streaming service owned by Star India, is a part of Walt Disney Group after all. Also, Hotstar has over 300 million active users in India, so yes, Hotstar clearly has a wide reach. It's also worth pointing out that Hotstar already hosts content from other services like ESPN and Hulu. That said, India will now be the only market in the world where content from services such as Hulu, ESPN, and Disney+ will live under the same name. © Marvel Lastly, coming to the pricing, Star India is planning to continue with its current subscription plans. While, globally, Disney+ will be priced at $7, Hotstar plans to continue with its current subscription plans i.e. Rs. 299 per month and Rs. 999 per year.
  3. With just a few days left for the release of this year's biggest release, 'Avengers: Endgame', our excitement has reached its pinnacle. With each passing day our wait is only getting harder, as people continue to flood the internet with theories related to Thanos and the superheroes who are all set to 'avenge the fallen'. Marvel Studios While everyone is busy wondering what Thanos is up to in the MCU, we've got our hands on an exclusive footage of him dancing with none other than Spiderman. And not just any song, but Varun Dhawan's song 'First Class' from his upcoming movie 'Kalank'. Well, we're not cooking this up, someone actually imagined it and made a Tik Tok video out of it. Dharma Productions What's more, Thanos might be dancing on Varun Dhawan's 'First Class', but his killer moves are inspired from our beloved Psy and his MV 'Gangnam Style'. Best #firstclass ever #avengersendgame https://t.co/DevsqIzbp4 — Varun ZAFAR Dhawan (@Varun_dvn) April 13, 2019 Seriously, if this isn't the best crossover ever, we wonder what is. In fact, Varun was so impressed with this that he couldn't stop himself from sharing it on social media. Directed by Abhishek Varman, 'Kalank' also stars Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt and is expected to release on April 17.
  4. Robert Downey Jr is the coolest person in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, much like Tony Stark. Well, RDJ is Tony and Tony is RDJ now, so it's not surprising. He's been here since the beginning, he has honestly made MCU what it is today and with 'Avengers: Endgame' being such a final movie for all the OG characters, he's probably very emotional and proud about it. He knows how much his fans love him and his character and that's probably why he's out there being so pure on his Instagram. The press tour for the movie is going on and he's still hellbent on entertaining everyone. Posting a video of himself dancing almost every day of the press tour, he really is proving he's the coolest.

  5. What were your first thoughts when you saw the silver screen come alive at the screening of 'Night At The Museum' back in 2006? That was something, wasn't it? The colossal museum and the myriad people and animals from the antiquities coming to life on-screen, and watching Ben Stiller trying to gather his semblance, almost made us wonder what would it be like to experience all that history with our very own eyes if given a chance. © 20th Century Fox Well, tell you what, we finally might have landed a chance to experience something similar, if not the same. Airbnb has teamed up with The Louvre in Paris and is giving a lucky winner the chance to win a 'Night with Mona Lisa'. Yes, you read that right. Here's What This Is All About © Wikipedia The Louvre Museum in Paris is the world's largest art museum and a historical monument in Paris. The museum is celebrating 30 years of the iconic glass pyramid aka the 'Louvre Pyramid' and is giving a lucky winner the chance to stay there! Read The Finer Details Here The stay is scheduled for Tuesday, 30th April, when the Louvre is usually closed. The winner gets to sleep under the pyramid in a “tent-like” bedroom, as well as enjoy a private tour of the museum. © Wikipedia Apart from all that, they will also be served boozy appetizers in a “living room” in front of the Mona Lisa painting, which will be followed by a privately-cooked dinner at the foot of the famous statue of the Venus de Milo. Later, the winner will also be taken to attend an acoustic music concert in the Napoleon III halls. Here's How You Can Try Your Luck © Instagram Sounds like a once in a lifetime opportunity, doesn't it? Well, it sure is! So here is how you can give this a shot and try your luck. To enter the competition, all you have to do is answer “Why would you be the Mona Lisa's perfect guest?” Details of how to enter, and all the terms and conditions are on the Airbnb website or else you can simply head over to AirBnB's official Instagram page and click on the link given in the bio. Happy participating!
  6. April 10 will probably go down in history as a huge day for science and for the entire humankind. Discussions on black holes have been going on for ages, but no one ever knew what it looked like. Until yesterday, when astronomers gave the world its first ever image of a black hole found in Galaxy M87 and let's just say we're shook. © Twitter Currently, everyone across the world is talking about the black hole and so is businessman Anand Mahindra, but in his own desi style. When the National Science Foundation shared the image of the black hole on Twitter, Anand Mahindra's 'sweet tooth' wrote, "One of the theories of the origin of our Universe is that it was born out of a black hole... So in the end, we are all inheritors of an intergalactic dunkin donuts franchise." One of the theories of the origin of our Universe is that it was born out of a black hole... So in the end, we are all inheritors of an intergalactic dunkin donuts franchise....ð https://t.co/cpohkKPyJd — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) April 10, 2019 Well, Mahindra is not alone in thinking so. The Internet is flooded with hilarious memes and jokes comparing the black hole to literally anything in the world. However, filmmaker Ram Subramanian wasn't too happy with his interpretation and wrote, "The South Indian in me is upset that you did not consider using Giant Wada to be the genesis of our universe." The South Indian in me is upset that you did not consider using Giant Wada to be the genesis of our universe. — Ram Subramanian (@VORdotcom) April 10, 2019 To which Mahindra then hilariously replied, "A thousand apologies. Wada it is. And the cosmic soup is a giant Sambar bowl." Well, now that the black hole is being called 'Wada in Sambar' can we officially change 'The Milky Way' into 'The Sambar Way'? ðð½ðð½ðð½ A thousand apologies. Wada it is. And the cosmic soup is a giant Sambar bowl. https://t.co/AHZB52IYvZ — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) April 10, 2019 According to some reports, the black hole (which appears to be like a tiny doughnut) actually measures three million times the size of the Earth and is in a Galaxy that is 53 million light-years from the Earth. It was captured by the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), using a network of eight radio telescopes located across the world.
  7. Yesterday was a huge day for people who celebrate science. It'll go down in history as a day when the first ever real image of black hole was revealed. But you know what? It's an even bigger day for female scientists across the globe because our first direct look at a black hole, though a bit blurry, is courtesy of a young lady named Katie Bouman. That's right, we earthlings got to see an image of the black hole as seen through the eyes of the Event Horizon Telescope, which is essentially an array of eight radio telescopes around the world working together. Left: MIT computer scientist Katie Bouman w/stacks of hard drives of black hole image data. Right: MIT computer scientist Margaret Hamilton w/the code she wrote that helped put a man on the moon. (image credit @floragraham)#EHTblackhole #BlackHoleDay #BlackHole pic.twitter.com/Iv5PIc8IYd — MIT CSAIL (@MIT_CSAIL) April 10, 2019 The MIT Grad, Katie, was still in school when she helped develop a computer program that created the image of the black hole. She was also the one who led testing to verify the images, which by itself is a huge task. The data from eight of those telescopes were collected on hundreds of hard drives and flown in to a central processing center. It was apparently set across manually because there was too much of it to send over the internet. It was in June last year, when all the data had arrived at the center. While speaking to Time, Katie said, “We all watched as the images appeared on our computers“. The ring came so easily. It was unbelievable.” © Event Horizon Telescope Six years ago when Katie had joined the team, she apparently didn't know a thing about black holes. After all, her background was from computer science and electrical engineering. That, however, didn't keep her away from “coming up with ways to see or measure things that are invisible,” she said. As soon as the first image of black hole was revealed, an image showing Katie next to a stack of hard drives went viral, and rightfully so. This woman deserves all the recognition. Bouman hasn't spoken to anyone else, but she CNN that “No one of us could've done it alone. It came together because of lots of different people from many backgrounds.” Congratulations to Katie Bouman to whom we owe the first photograph of a black hole ever. Not seeing her name circulate nearly enough in the press. Amazing work. And here's to more women in science (getting their credit and being remembered in history) ð¥ð¥âï¸ pic.twitter.com/wcPhB6E5qK — Tamy Emma Pepin (@TamyEmmaPepin) April 10, 2019 Interestingly, Bouman delivered a TED Talk back in 2016 called “How to take a picture of a black hole”, where she noted that the first ever picture of a black hole will come down to an international team of scientists, an Earth-sized telescope and an algorithm to put all the data together and reveal the final image.
  8. The Huawei P30 Pro and P30 have finally made its way to India where “P” denotes the meaning for photography. It's definitely one of the salient features of the smartphones and we've been testing the phone for almost a week to find out for ourselves. The P30 Pro has a versatile camera system and has features such as 5x optical zoom, an RYB sensor and also a ToF (Time of Flight) sensor. The ToF sensor is capable of delving more accurate bokeh picture. The smartphone also comes with a 32-MP selfie camera. Specifications Roundup © Huawei The P30 Pro has a 6.47-inch OLED Display and a 6.1-inch OLED display. It has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and has a teardrop design which houses the selfie camera. The smartphone comes with an all-glass finish with a gradient design when it comes to colours. The P30 Pro is powered by Huawei's Kirin 980 SoC and runs on Android Pie 9.1 out of the box. The P30 Pro as a 4,200 mAh battery and it also supports reverse wireless charging, just like the Mate 20 Pro and some other devices like the Galaxy S10. With P30 Pro, you also get a 40W USB-C fast charger for rapid charging. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The P30 Pro is also water resistant and has a rating of IP 68 while the P30 has a rating of IP 53. In terms of cameras, the main sensor is a 40 MP 27mm sensor with an f/1.6 aperture and optical image stabilization. The second camera is an ultra-wide sensor with an f/2.2 aperture. The telephoto lens or as Huawei calls it the periscope lens is an 8MP sensor that supports 5x optical zoom. The P30 Pro also supports high ISO levels of up to 409600 (P30 Pro), which basically means it can take awesome low-light shots. Pricing and availability The Huawei P30 Pro will only be offered in one variant i.e. 8GB & 256GB internal storage, and it's priced at Rs. 71,990. You'll be able to pick one up from Amazon India starting 16 April. P30 Lite In addition to the P30 Pro, Huawei has also launched the P30 Lite in India. It's essentially a toned down version the P30 Pro, and it's powered by the mid-range Kirin 710 SoC. Though the P30 Lite has the same design aesthetics as the P30 Pro, there are a few noteworthy differences. The P30 Lite doesn't have an in-display fingerprint scanner and has a physical scanner at the back. It also has a smaller 6.17-inch FHD LCD display. Also, the P30 Lite only has three cameras on the back consisting of a 24 MP primary camera, an 8 MP wide-angle lens and a 2 MP camera for the depth effect. Moving on to the pricing, the P30 Lite will cost Rs. 19,990 for the 4GB + 128GB while the 6GB + 128 GB variant will cost Rs 22,990. You can pick up the phone from Amazon starting 26 April.
  9. Unlike us normal folks, celebrities don't get the privacy they need when they're going through a divorce or even an annulment. Before they know it, their entire sob story is splashed all across social media platforms and tabloids. While I am not sure why their marriages hit the rocks sooner than anticipated, I do know it's a rather difficult time for them to maintain a certain amount of discretion they desire. Commitments take time and effort to work and if either is lacking, the marriage is bound to slip up and head towards an undesirable end. And when you're a celebrity, time and effort are two things that really need to be worked upon and sometimes that doesn't happen the way it should. (c)Twitter Just recently Nicolas Cage annulled his fourth marriage to girlfriend Erika Koike and we're not sure what brought about the formidable difference between their equation, but this was a very short-lived marriage. So, here are 5 celebrity couples, both in Hollywood and Bollywood, whose marriages fell apart faster than their dreams did: (1) Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries (c)Pintrest The two had differences they couldn't figure and their marriage was no fairytale, just like how their wedding was. Their marriage lasted for 72 days to be precise before they parted ways. (2) Pulkit Samrat & Shweta Rohira (c)Twitter The two had been dating a while and the 'Fukrey' actor finally married his long term girlfriend Shweta, only to divorce her 1 months after. it is rumoured their differences began with Pulkit's rumoured closeness with Yami Gautam. (3) Katy Perry & Russel Brand (c)Twitter The couple tied the knot in India but unfortunately, their marriage couldn't last for more than 14 months. The reason isn't clear but it was mostly because of Katy's busy routine that left little or no time to make this marriage work. (4) Karan Singh Gill & Mallika Sherawat (c)Twitter While Mallika refuses that she was ever married, there are pictures of her sitting at a mandap. The guy in the picture happens to be a pilot named Karan Gill Singh and they were just married for 12 months. Mostly because Mallika wanted to concentrate on her career. (5) Britney Spears & Jason Alexander (c)Pintrest Back in 2004, the pop artist tied the knot with her childhood friend Jason Alexander in Las Vegas. The marriage definitely made headlines all over the world but unfortunately, last only for 55 hours! We're not sure why it happened in the first place! While it's sad the marriage lasted for such a little while, I am sure the couple made peace with it and were happy with their decision. Here's hoping for longer lasting and happier marriages!
  10. Advertised as the biggest Air Max unit ever used on a sneaker, Nike's Air Max 720 is an attention seeker in a good way! This sneaker comes is fun playful colours and a large and bouncy bubble unit and the latest pint-sized pair to appear is this compelling combination of black and laser pink among other combinations. © Nike © Nike The shoe's puffer sole is a statement in itself. The airbag hangs over the sides. The Nike's money-minting swoosh logo is surprisingly missing from the side surface, in its place is a boomerang-shaped signia that looks just like a Nike logo, except it is flipped upside down. © Nike © Nike © Nike The feeling might be familiar to anyone who loved or played in bouncy jungle gyms as a kid. Just like the squishy walls of the gym, the gushy sole looks so much fun to hang around in. In this case, of course, wearing the 720 won't look like you're an adult trying to be a kid but the whole springy vibe has its special appeal that you don't want to miss out on. The Nike Air Max 720 is available on Nike's official website starting Rupees 15,995.
  11. In the modern era of cricket, technology has slowly and gradually become an integral part of the game. Whether it's a run-out, stumping or even a LBW shout, the implementation of Decision Review System (DRS) in the game has aided fairplay significantly. Minimising the human errors, DRS gives an opportunity to both the batting and bowling side to attain a fair decision from the umpires. But, in the ongoing Pakistan Cup 2019, a cricketer became the butt of all jokes after calling for a DRS over a clear-cut dropped catch. For someone who was once compared with Indian skipper Virat Kohli, Pakistani batsman Ahmed Shehzad hasn't really lived up to the hype in recent times. © Twitter The right-hander's inconsistent performances saw him getting dropped from the Pakistani line-up. His last appearance in the Pakistani jersey dates back to June 2018 when he played in a T20 International (T20I) against Scotland. And then, a doping violation saw him getting banned for four months by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). But, if the sack from the national team wasn't enough to derail his reputation, Shehzad's latest antics further dented his rapport with cricket fans. During a clash between Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Federal Areas, the former were cruising in their chase of 269 runs when Khushdil Shah played a mighty heave towards deep midwicket. Shehzad, who was patrolling that region, got underneath the ball, but made an epic blunder to drop what looked like a regulation catch. Review please #PakistanCup pic.twitter.com/EdXnFKyp3b — Saj Sadiq (@Saj_PakPassion) April 3, 2019 If dropping a simple catch wasn't enough, Shehzad, then, suffered a hilarious brain fade as he signalled for a review. The replays showed Shehzad clearly bottling the catch on atleast two efforts before the ball touched the ground. Shehzad's DRS call was more of a desperate move to avoid humiliation that came with dropping a dolly - something that he has done in the past. Back in 2015, during a clash between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, Shehzad had dropped Lahiru Thirimanne, but told the on-field umpires that it was a clean take. However, the replays clearly showed that the ball had touched the ground. Here's a look at how cricket fans reacted to Shehzad's howler of a DRS call: inko lgta hai technology itni advance ho gyi hai ki jo catch reality me na pkda jaye wo shayd TV me pakda gya ho ð — Punkð (@punk_hardik) April 4, 2019 What an actor thoughððð — Prachi | CSK ð (@PrachiNotDesai) April 3, 2019 Nxt level honesty.ððð — Parag (@Parag171292) April 3, 2019 Oh lord, he did something similar against Sri Lanka.

I think I've seen it all now. — Noddy1988 (@ToxicKebab) April 3, 2019
  12. For the most part, Ranbir Kapoor seems like quite a private person since he's not really on social media and isn't always directly interacting with his fans. Well, that's probably what he prefers, but it's a shame since we don't ever get to see his personal side more often and couldn't even tell how relatable he actually is. Until now. Today, when he arrived at the Mumbai Airport, he was obviously surrounded by paparazzi and seemed like he was in a fun mood since he basically started making small talk with the photographers present there. While walking outside, he asked one of them, “Yeh chappal kahaan se li?” to which, the photographer replied, “Andheri Station.” View this post on Instagram #ranbirkapoor says where did you buy these chappals? Our man says from Andheri station.ððð A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Apr 1, 2019 at 12:42pm PDT Wow, how many times have we asked the same question to our friends, and sometimes even random people? Next, I really, really want to see pictures of Ranbir going to the Andheri Station and finding the chappals, that would be hilarious. This is the type of quality content we deserve and even Anand Ahuja is enjoying it. The chappal is having a viral moment now. Probably the real reason.
  13. If mothers are an epitome of love, warmth, and affection; fathers are sometimes the exact opposite! They might troll you in front of your friends, but will also turn into your biggest cheerleaders and at times, go simply overboard with excitement. From cheering at the top of their voice to moving mountains (if needed) if they try to block their way while making a video, fathers are the best people you need in your life and watching them do their 'dad thing' is priceless. And Amitabh Bachchan, too, did the most dad thing ever when his daughter Shweta Bachchan walked the ramp at a recent fashion show. View this post on Instagram To the best .. always .. tonight elegance grace and dignity ðð A post shared by Amitabh Bachchan (@amitabhbachchan) on Mar 24, 2019 at 1:09pm PDT Shweta Bachchan, who recently launched her own brand, was walking the ramp with Karan Johar for Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. Big B was attending the show with Jaya Bachchan and the moment Shweta came on the ramp, he took out his phone to record it. Honestly, he reminded us of our parents at our Annual Day celebrations in school, back in the day when the Kodak reel cameras were a thing. But, that's not even the best thing about the video. The best moment was when he apparently whistled at the videographer, to ask him to move as he was blocking his view and once he shifted he continued making the video (zooming in and zooming out in between).

On the work front, Amitabh Bachchan whose latest flick 'Badla' was a super hit at the box-office, is now gearing up for his next movie 'Brahmastra' that also stars Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt.
  14. Have you ever felt frustrated when your girlfriend, during an argument, tells you that you are not a good boyfriend? Have you ever felt intense jealousy when she compares you to a fictional character and sighs, ruing the fact that why can't you be as romantic as them? If your answer to the above questions is “Yes”, then this post is just the one for you. Often, while rolling your eyes when something romantic happens on screen (with your girlfriend slyly pointing out how great a boyfriend the character is), you contemplate whether the term “good boyfriend” is a myth. © Pinterest The truth is that you can hardly compare to a fictional boyfriend; the charm, the intensity, the articulation, the good looks, everyone is not blessed with all of these. And even though your girlfriend is well aware of this fact, people can hope, can't they? (Don't act like you have never compared her to Hermione or RobinScherbatsky :P) © 21 Laps Entertainment/Netflix Oft-misunderstood and perpetually trying to achieve the perfection required by the girlfriend, being a boyfriend seems like quite a job, eh? :P But that doesn't mean that every character in fiction, or to be precise, every fictional boyfriend is the stuff of dreams and are faultless. They, like real people, make wrong choices, have fights, do the wrong thing. © Warner Bros. Television/Alloy Entertainment/ The CW In fact, all these years, through various series, novels and movies, we have seen a parade of superficially great fictional boyfriends who get the girl. And the girl seems happy with him. © NBC/ Warner Bros. Television/ Bright/Kauffman/Crane Productions After multiple viewings and thorough character analysis, this is the truth we arrive at: All this while, they have been masquerading as perfect boyfriends who can do no wrong while in reality, they are terrible human beings. © Elizabeth Meriwether Pictures/20th Century Fox Teevision So, the next time your girlfriend accuses you of being a bad boyfriend, you can tell her that there are still worse ones out there, and you have fictional characters to back you up. Here are 12 of the worst boyfriends in fiction: 1. Ted Mosby (How I Met Your Mother): © CBS/Bays and Thomas Productions/20th Century Fox Television Intense, dedicated, romantic. He is the most relatable guy on TV. Could there be anything wrong with Ted Mosby? Unfortunately, yes. Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) is one of those people who keep whining because they are not in a relationship and when they are in a relationship, they whine about how it was better being single. He is that proverbial nice guy who makes you feel bad about yourself. Ted is the textbook definition of obsequious; he lets people walk all over him in a relationship just so they continue to be in one with him. No doubt that Ted loves with passion and no one else can love as Ted does, but he lets his emotions get the better of him. His ambition to be perfect always comes in the way of his love. Moreover, he tries to manipulate the person he is dating in his own way and throws a tantrum every time they don't concede. He is sweet, but he tries too hard to prove that he is good and better than the rest of the men on the planet. He is narcissistic in the worst possible way, which overshadow his good qualities. In his quest of becoming the “Best Boyfriend Ever,” he hardly thinks about others, in fact about the girl he is dating. His over the top gestures might seem romantic but he but it just comes across as annoying. The biggest problem is he knows what's wrong with him but conveniently chooses to ignore it. 2. Mr Big (*** and the City): © HBO Oh, where can I start on Mr Big (Chris Noth)? He is perhaps the modern equivalent of Mr Darcy, but a very abominable one. He is handsome, smart, rich and articulate. But all these have no value when you are a douchebag. After proclaiming to Carrie that he is no ready for a serious relationship, he ends up getting married to the next woman he runs into. He is commitment-phobic; he finds relationships stifling and he has no qualms in starting an affair with Carrie when he is married. He is unsure of his own feelings and never says what he means, tries to hide the fact that he is dating from other people because others may judge him for the person he's dating. He never seems to care for Carrie or any of his wives. He loves Carrie but is never sure about it and brings out the worst in her (leaving aside the fact that Carrie is terrible herself) and even after a long, long, long courtship leaves her at the altar. 3. Joe Goldberg (You): © Netflix/Berlanti Productions/Alloy Entertainment/Warner Bros. Television The personification of the “Nice Guy Syndrome”. The more you say about Joe (Penn Badgley, who seems to be cursed to play bad boyfriends, but he does it so well), the less it is. He may be the guy next door, but he is the type who doubles up as a murderer/stalker (talk about multi-tasking :P). He seems to take the notion of loving someone to death quite literally, that“someone” usually turning up dead. Yes, all of it is not his fault, Beck isn't completely innocent, but killing another person isn't justifiable. Doesn't really qualify him to be “Boyfriend of the Year”. Worse is he thinks himself to be the victim and justifies his murdering people with being a “protector”. He is a sociopath: he schemes all his movements to the tee and tries to show himself in the best light possible and can lie with élan. He sweet-talks, fakes the good boy act and gaslights with alarming ease. He is delusional; after only a chance meeting and superficial flirtation, he believes that Beck is meant for him and they met because of some plan, that she belongs to him, then tries to manipulate everything in order to achieve that, eventually even choosing violence on the way to get her. 4. Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries): © Outerbanks Entertainment/ CBS/ Warner Bros. Television Sexy vampires cannot hold a candle to the suave and debonair Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder). He is a different kind of bad boy: the supernatural bad boy; not only is he wicked but he also is a vampire (what more can you ask for, right? :P) This does not change the fact that Damon is not the perfect boyfriend material. He is selfish, possessive and fights dirty, is abusive (*drinks blood*) and has the worst possible track record in dating. To his credit, he is not afraid to declare it and that is where the problem is; he is too invested in his interests to care about his partner or anyone for that matter. He loves Elena with a fierce intensity which quickly transforms from compelling to dangerous. His desire for Elena stems from the fact that his brother also wants her; he fights for her, not because he loves her but because he hates to lose. To him, Elena is a prize to be won over, not an equal partner. That is hardly the foundation of a good relationship. 5. Don Draper (Mad Men): © Weiner Bros./Silvercup Studios/Lionsgate Television Don (Jon Hamm) is possibly the king of bad boyfriends, a poster child of what a fuckboy should be. He continually cheats on his wife (because why not, it's the '50s, right?), lies to her and treats her with as much respect as people give to a doormat. A true womanizer, one who would put Casanova to shame, he has a string of girlfriends whom he does not care about and are mostly for his sexual gratification. He tries to run away from responsibilities and can hardly be true to someone. He thinks that money solves all his problems and just spending it or throwing it around on people makes up for all his mistakes. To be true, he is a *** addict and a psychopath, with little regard for the feelings of the person he is involved with. Moreover, he is dominating (again the '50s) and can never let the woman have the upper hand or her opinion for that matter. His dangerous charm, good looks and devil-may-care attitude seem good on paper, but does it hold up in real life? He might be the best advertising mind out there (his only redeeming quality), but an advertisement about his skills as a boyfriend won't take off in the market anytime soon. 6. Jess Mariano (Gilmore Girls): © Warner Bros. Television/Dorothy Parker Drank Here Productions Ah, the messiah of bad boys! Brooding, hot and a lover of books makes Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) the perfect fictional boyfriend, but nothing can be further from the truth. Of all of Rory's boyfriends, he is the brashest and most uncouth. He is rude to everyone; his teen angst is misplaced, and his self-assuredness is annoying. His rebel without a cause attitude seems appealing only to Rory, who is blind to his emotional manipulation. He is perhaps the worst “bad boy” trope out there: exasperating the girl he is interested in until she gives in. He makes Rory break up with Dean, with his apparently nonchalant run-ins and woos her by showing how much they have in common, but once he makes her his girlfriend, he takes her for granted and starts ignoring her, doesn't call her back and becomes increasingly rude. To top it off, he tries to force her to have *** with him and gets angry when she declines and runs off to California. Though he seems to have finally turned a new leaf in the reboot, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. 7. Rhett Butler (Gone With The Wind): © Pinterest Well, we all know that Rhett (Clark Gable)“frankly doesn't give a damn”. And he means it. A roving eye, a cavalier attitude and a megalomaniacal nature hardly come together to make a good boyfriend. But he is glib, a smooth talker and says what he means and yes, that is very sexy. That's what makes him so desirable to Scarlett O'Hara. Then again, talking is so much easier than doing, isn't it? He is prejudiced, he belittles Scarlett throughout the novel/movie, demeans her (Scarlett isn't exactly the faultless heroine either) and worries only about himself. Just like his slippery talk, his qualities and personality are also “gone with the wind”. 8. Nate (The Devil Wears Prada): © Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/Selznick International Pictures The most annoying character in “The Devil Wears Prada” has to be Nate (Adrian Grenier), Andy's seemingly perfect (with a slight clothing fetish), saintly (*ahem*) boyfriend. He sulks around the screen like a petulant 5-year-old whose candy has been snatched away. His tantrums are worse than Miranda Priestly, he can easily give her a run for her money in that department. He ridicules Andy every chance he gets; about her job, demeans her job, never supports her and masks it with a veil of fake concern for her. He keeps telling her that she has changed, like that is a bad thing, because she doesn't cater to his every need like she used to. He tries to make her feel bad for choosing her career over him though he has no problem in doing the same and is angry with her when she stands up for herself. He seems very sweet and encouraging but that's a façade for his insecure personality. 9. SteveHarrington (Stranger Things): © 20th Century Fox/Fox 2000 Pictures/Dune Entertainment Steve Harrington (Joe Kerry) is the best babysitter in all of Hawkins. Fashion expert par excellence. Dedicated mother hen to the Stranger Squad.Awesome big bro to Dustin. But as a boyfriend, he is a jerk. Though he does realize his mistake later on (sadly after Nancy has moved on), his abysmal treatment of Nancy (and Jonathan) in the first season makes one's blood boil. He is one of those entitled jocks who run around making others miserable. Also, when Barb dies, he is flippant about it and his lack of emotion is appalling. The indifference about it plays a major role in Steve and Nancy's break-up. He loves Nancy but he has an odd way of showing it; he pushes her to be cool and let down her inhibitions, but he also wants to control her. He wants Nancy to be more free about herself, loosen up, but forgets that she is a reserved person and they need time to open up. As of Season 2, he has redeemed himself as a person, but not as a boyfriend. Ah well, there's still the next season. 10. Ross (Friends): © Netflix/21 Laps Entertainment Ross “We were on a break!” Geller (David Schwimmer) is the epitome of the “Nice Guy Syndrome” (A well-natured cousin of Joe Goldberg in that way). He suffers from intense jealousy, can't seem to comprehend that his girlfriend can have a life which does not revolve around him. He hangs on for Rachel for 10 years, until she gives in. People might call it persuasive and romantic, I say it is borderline stalkerish and psychopathic. He tries to justify his atrocious behaviour by blaming the people around him and tries to prove himself right on a technicality. He does not trust his girlfriends, even though he is hardly perfect. He is extremely conflicted about the possibility of being wrong and thinks himself to be blameless. Touchy about his masculinity is just another feather in his boyfriend's cap. His goofy ways are supposed to be endearing but they don't come across as extremely childish and irksome (at least to me :P). Even when he is not in a relationship with Rachel, he keeps sabotaging her relationships and behaves abominably when he finds out that she is dating Joey. 11. John Willoughby (Sense and Sensibility): © NBC/ Warner Bros. Television/ Bright/Kauffman/Crane Productions John Willoughby (Greg Wise) is handsome, chivalrous, classy, eloquent and can make girls go weak in the knees. He can read poetry with dramatic intensity and gusto, he can be effectively charming and speaks with unnatural grace and economy. Granted everything, that doesn't change the truth that he is a flake; a spineless gold-digger who would rather be married to an heiress than to the supposed love of his life who is penniless. He leads Marianne on, takes her on wild horse-rides, is extremely romantic with her, makes her feel that he loves her but does not tell her the truth about himself. Instead, he breaks her heart and goes off to London and ceases communication. When they meet in London again, after Marianne's unsuccessful but relentless attempts to communicate with him, he is cold and acts aloof. The reason? He has been engaged to Miss Grey, who has a formidable fortune and tells her that there was nothing between them. Classic case of “literary fuckboy”: leading on for personal gain. Not only that, he impregnates Eliza, Colonel Brandon's adopted daughter, and runs off leaving her pregnant and helpless. Not so gallant after all! 12. Lucas Scott (One Tree Hill): © Warner Bros. Television/Tollin/Robbins Productions One word: Indecisive. A total and complete jerk! No doubts on this one, please. Lucas (Chad Michael Murray) is like a child with a shiny, new toy: He knows what he wants but doesn't want to work for it. Once he gets what he wants, he doesn't want it. He cheats on his girlfriend repeatedly; does so just before proposing to Lindsay and pulls the quintessential “sleeping with the best friend” when he is with Brooke. He knows that he wants Peyton, but when he finally ends up with her, he behaves in a weird way with her. He has no remorse and is selfish, he just needs what's good for him and does not care what happens to others. Moreover, he thinks that making a grandiose speech about how he loves someone is enough to make the other person forgive him. So, there you have it. Who's the worst according to you? Tell us in the comments!
  15. Elon Musk, are you doing okay, buddy? Everything good? You know, you can always talk to professionals about your addiction, your addiction to memes. Yep, it's no secret that our favourite billionaire may have developed a little bit of an obsession with memes recently and that too, memes involving him. Everyone loves having a good laugh and Elon probably is just making sure to keep everyone happy, and it's honestly great to see him make jokes at his expense. Just a few days ago, he blessed us with this piece of art. Oh hi lol pic.twitter.com/9WvbtTHoxS — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 26, 2019 Now, he's posted another meme involving himself and it's honestly the true face of horror. Take a look.

Why did you make me and about 25 million other people look at this? It's just so disturbing for some reason, I can't explain it. People then replied (and supplied) him with more memes of him. pic.twitter.com/ikQzZClT7I — Lucas thies (@Vefna1) March 6, 2019 Uh no.

  16. 35-year-old Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, the IAF combat pilot who took down a Pakistani F-16, and did the unthinkable using a MiG-21 to achieve this feat, had been in the news all of last week for his show of valour and selflessness, when it came to performing his duty with the utmost bravery, and maintaining his cool during his captivity. (c) Twitter Abhinandan was captured by the Pakistan Army after he crash-landed across the LoC post an aerial dogfight with his Pakistani counterparts who had infiltrated the Indian airspace early morning on 27th February, in retaliation to India's airstrike on terror camps in Pakistan and PoK on 26th February. Abhinandan became international news when the entire world took notice of the combat pilot's show of courage and calm under during his interrogation, inspiring respect from people around the world. (c) Twitter Having spent over 58 hours in Pakistani captivity, Abhinandan was finally released by the Pakistani government late evening on 1st March in keeping with the diktats of the Geneva Convention for Prisoners of War. The entire nation joined in the celebrations to welcome Abhinandan back, and now, the Akhil Bharatiya Digambar Jain Mahasamiti has declared that the Wing Commander shall be the first recipient of the 'Bhagwan Mahavir Ahimsa Puraskar' instituted by the organisation. (c) Twitter The announcement regarding the award for Abhinandan was announced in New Delhi by Manidra Jain, whereas the Maharashtra chapter convener Paras Lohade stated that the award. carrying a cash prize of Rs 2.51 lakh, a memento and a citation, will be presented to Abhinandan on Mahavir Jayanti, which will be celebrated on April 17th this year.
  17. Arguably the best T20 league in the cricketing world, the Indian Premier League, is back with its 12th edition along quite some changes in the team names and their squads too. We have witnessed new records replacing the old ones, and with the addition of newcomers and the shake-up of the experienced ones, this year's IPL also has a high probability of breaking all records from the past seasons. One of the most difficult records to break would be that of the highest total, which is currently possessed by none other than THE Royal Challengers Bangalore, scoring a mammoth 263 runs in mere 20 overs against the Pune Warriors with the help of a 'Gayle storm' at the Chinnaswamy Stadium during the 2013 season. Let's go through all the highest total ever scored in IPL history: Royal Challengers Bangalore's 265-5 Vs Pune Warriors (2013) © BCCI RCB was reckoned to be one of the most lethal teams in the history of IPL till they were backed by the trio of AB De Villiers, Virat Kohli, and Chris Gayle. In their years together, this trio has gone on to play some magnificent knocks, and the score of 265 being one of them. April 23, 2013, would have been a normal day for everyone if Chris Gayle wouldn't have decided to score a monstrous 175 of just 66 deliveries, consisting of 17 humongous sixes and 13 fours. With Gayle registering the highest score in T20 cricket, Pune Warriors could only manage to post 133, paving the way for Bangalore to earn the record of the biggest IPL victory in terms of runs (130). Royal Challengers Bangalore's 248-3 Vs Gujrat Lions (2016) © Facebook@RCB After putting up a gigantic total of 265 on board in 2013, RCB seemed in full mood to replicate that innings but this time, with ABD and King Kohli on the field. After registering the highest total in the history of IPL, RCB bagged the position for the second highest total also by posting 248 on the scoreboard against Gujrat Lions in the 9th edition of the league. This mighty total was courtesy 'Mr. 360 Degree' who was not out on 129 and skipper Kohli who contributed 109 runs in the total. Chennai Super Kings' 246-5 Vs Rajasthan Royals (2010) © AFP The title holders of 2010 IPL, Chennai Super Kings, produced a spectacular show against the Rajasthan Royals, posting 246 runs at MA Chidambaram Stadium on April 3, 2010. The special knock was played by the home lad Murli Vijay as he scored a brilliant 127 off meagre 56 balls with 11 sixes and eight fours. Vijay's score that year was the second highest after Brendon McCullum's 158. He also became the third Indian to score a century in an IPL match after Manish Pandey and Yusuf Pathan. The way Vijay hammered the Australian trio of Shaun Tait, Shane Warne and Shane Watson, it seemed like he was playing in some local league. He slaughtered the Royals bowlers, who failed in every attempt to make a comeback during the game. Kolkata Knight Riders' 245-6 Vs Kings XI Punjab (2018) © BCCI Kolkata Knight Riders were one of the star performers of the 2018 IPL and their newly discovered opener, Sunil Naraine was in itself the biggest surprise of the season. Throughout, he kept performing with both, the ball and the bat. In the battle against Kings XI Punjab, Naraine once again opened the innings and blasted the bowling line up of Punjab by scoring a quick 75 in 36 balls with the help of four 6's and nine 4's. Once he was gone, the baton was handed over to Dinesh Kartik who went on to score a decent 50, posting 245-6 on the scoreboard. Kings XI showed good character and almost reached the target, but in the end, could register only 218 runs on the board, eventually losing the match by 18 runs.
  18. The first Friday of March is witnessing a clash of two very interesting movies at the box office. On one hand is the romantic comedy 'Luka Chuppi' starring Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon, on another hand is the dacoit drama 'Sonchiriya' starring Sushant Singh Rajput, Ranvir Shorey, Bhumi Pednekar and Manoj Bajpayee in the lead roles. The movie is helmed by Abhishek Chaubey, who was also the brain behind 'Udta Punjab', and follows the life and the underbelly of the Chambal Valley. The audience reactions are out and people are mostly raving about the power-packed performances of the stellar cast. #Sonchiriya ðððð Terrific! The favorite genre of Bollywood is back and it will surely gain more fans . The movie is great in every aspect the direction , cinemetography, sound and editing are top notch . The writing is on point . — BOLLYWOODMagnum (@BollywoodMagnum) March 1, 2019 Sonchiriya is a lit movie ð¥ð¥.but only for the selective audience. Sushant sirð is phenomenal in his role and bhumi mamð had also done a great jobð..lack of music connection.overall a complete package of thrill and entertainment ðð¥ @itsSSR @bhumipednekar #SonchiriyaReview — Navnit Sharma (@navi_sharma77) March 1, 2019 While it is not a popcorn entertainer, the movie surely promises a gripping watch for serious cinema goers, who are looking for a strong script with a great screenplay. what an amazing film..thank you @MumbaiFilmFest !!! #sonchiriya @RanvirShorey @BajpayeeManoj @itsSSR @RonnieScrewvala @bhumipednekar @RSVPMovies kudos! best line "the bullets made by the government will not kill me, its the promises that will!" https://t.co/N6HqHYIApY — Sapna Moti Bhavnani (@sapnabhavnani) February 27, 2019 #Sonchiriya is a rollicking affair; a social drama that exudes the frantic pace of an action film, peppered with marvellous dark humour. Abhishek Chaubey and writer Sudip Sharma are a force to reckon with. Politics, caste, feminism with a Spaghetti Western backdrop. What a blast! pic.twitter.com/N7P5P3N1Ib — Aniruddha Guha (@AniGuha) February 27, 2019 Mind blown. So sensitive, so brutal, such a finely observed critique of patriarchy and our caste system — #Sonchiriya is not to be missed. Kudos Abhishek Chaubey, Sudip Sharma, @RonnieScrewvala + the entire team! Thank you @MumbaiFilmFest @RSVPMovies #SonchiriyaAtMAMI — Sudhanshu Saria (@iamsuds) February 27, 2019 Some are even calling it as one of the finest bandit movies Indian cinema has experienced. Almost exactly 25 years since Bandit Queen, arguably 'faadu-est' Indian film (ever)—a fine, fab tribute to Chambal, and the Curry Western (with/without the curry, or Western). Piece on the super-pic #SONCHIRIYA https://t.co/L6MyCjiCyi — Mayank Shekhar (@mayankw14) February 28, 2019 It requires immense guts and vision to do a film like #Sonchiriya. Well done on your choice and performance, @bhumipednekar! May your tribe increase! — TANUJ GARG (@tanuj_garg) February 27, 2019 In case you were confused about booking the tickets for this one, you should put your doubts to rest and make plans right away.
  19. It was a chilly Sunday afternoon in Bengaluru, the roads were empty and the offices closed. If you were new in the area, you'd ask out loud: “What has happened to one of the busiest and happening cities this nation?” The answer: India Vs England. People found themselves stuck in front of their televisions, unable to blink amid one of the most anticipated matchups of the 2011 ICC World Cup, the host, Team India was to go head-to-head against a dominating force in England. Paul Collingwood, skipper Andrew Strauss and the notorious Kevin Peterson had taken the Englishmen to heights never seen before. On the other hand, the Men in Blue looked rock solid with Sachin Tendulkar getting over his woes and thoughts of retiring from the sport, Virender Sehwag finding his mojo and MS Dhoni's outstanding winning streak, while a young Virat Kohli was on the rise. After winning the toss, in a not-so-popular decision, Dhoni decided to bat first. Unable to stick to the crease for long, opener Virender Sehwag was dismissed by Matt Prior off Tim Bresnan. However, it was the second opener and the 'god of cricket' Sachin Tendulkar who showed his true form to us mortals as he took the English bowlers to task. Be it pacer James Anderson or orthodox spinner James Yardy, the master blaster spared no one. In a beautiful innings, Tendulkar scored a toasty 120 to record his 47th ODI ton and the fifth World Cup century - more than any other player in the history of the game. Check out "WC 2011: Sachin Smashes 120 vs Eng" on Hotstar!https://t.co/aU9p38gFoz — Aditya Pandey (@adityapandey148) February 27, 2019 Gautam Gambhir and Yuvraj Singh were excellent sidekicks to Tendulkar's heroic performance as they scored 51 and 58 runs respectively. Team India built a mammoth total of 338 for England to chase. People expected England to swing for the fences from the first ball, but nobody expected captain Andrew Strauss to explode like that. Watching him destroy the spinners made people want to shoot themselves in the foot. Both Piyush Chawla and Harbhajan Singh were visibly frustrated as Strauss sent deliveries to every corner of the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium. After scoring an incredible 158 off 145 balls, the English batsman was finally sent away on an LBW appeal by bowler Zaheer Khan. Despite Strauss' sendoff, England managed to hang on to the ropes as future skipper Ian Bell shouldered the batting order, scoring 69 in 71. Even though the English tailenders were on the crease, the Indian fans were holding their breath as the fate of the match was to be decided on the very last ball. On a perfect delivery by Munaf Patel, Graeme Swann tried to go for the big one, but the ball went straight to the mid-off fielder Yusuf Pathan, who made no mistake in getting hold of it and the batsmen were pinned to taking a single. After 100 overs of action-pact innings spearheaded by Sachin Tendulkar and Andrew Strauss, one of the greatest encounters in the history of ICC World Cup ended on a tie as commentator Ravi Shastri very rightly said: “No team deserved to lose.”. One of the most exciting @cricketworldcup encounters ever?

  20. Have you ever wanted a smartphone that has battery backup for days? We've seen plenty of foldable smartphones launched at MWC this year but Energizer's 18,000 mAh smartphone is unlike anything we've ever seen. It's being touted as the smartphone “with the most powerful battery in the market” and is called the Power Max P18K Pop. Energizer says that the phone will let you users watch videos for two days straight on a single charge and can last for 90-hour calls. It can last for 100 hours of music streaming and can last up to 50 days on standby mode. The Power Max P18K Pop can also double up as a power bank in case you want to charge any of your other devices on the go. Everyone: We don't care about thinness, just give us a bigger battery! Energizer: Hold my beer https://t.co/yLkOduSedI pic.twitter.com/X5MVeIAtIH — Enrique V (@rickyvtech) February 25, 2019 Naturally, anything with a battery of that size is going to be thicc (read “thick”) which is probably not going to sit comfortably in your pocket. It's so thick that you can use it as a weapon or throw it as a brick that can break things. It's 1cm across which is probably the thickest you've ever seen on a smartphone. Apart from the massive battery, the Power Max P18K Pop has a 6.2-inch FHD+ display and has an aspect ratio on 18:9. It's powered by a MediaTek Helio P70 processor, has 128GB of internal storage and 6GB RAM. In the camera department, it has a dual pop-up selfie camera with 6- and 2-megapixel sensors respectively. At the rear, it has a triple camera setup with 12, 5 and 2 megapixel sensors. It runs Android 9 Pie out of the box; however, the company has not revealed how much the smartphone will cost or when it will be available to buy.
  21. Fashion is essentially subjective, of course, but there are some things that one should just stay a hundred miles away from - unless of course, they enjoy wallowing in bad taste. Men's fashion is becoming more and more inclusive every passing day, but that should never be the license for wearing 'the bad and the ugly'. In spite of all the subjectivity, trust us, there do exist some unforgivable fashion faux pas, that every man should steer clear of. Don't worry if it sounds too confusing, we're here to tell you what not to wear. We have listed out 6 things that men should never, ever wear. 1. Shiny shirts © FashionLeisure They were popular once upon a time, but we'll never understand why. No one can pull them off! Shiny shirts will make you look weird AF, even if you look like a Greek God. They look super cheap, extremely gaudy, and plain ugly. 2. Ill fitted, baggy jeans © Alibaba If you want to convert your Tinder right swipes to left swipes in real life, please go out on a date wearing these atrocities. Yes, comfortable and blah, but so are a pair of nice, crisp pair of linen trousers that fit you just right! Why would you want to look like a confused teen from the hood in a Gangsta movie who's had a trip or two to the juvie? 3. Socks with sandals © Getty Images We can't stress upon how harmful this one right here can be for your romantic/*** life.

  22. The 2019 Oscars were an interesting blend of performances and winners and thankfully, a lot of predicted winners got their due and the much awaited golden lady as well, including none other than Lady Gaga who surprised and wowed the audiences last year when she teamed up with Bradley Cooper for 'A Star Is Born' and gave us the musical we deserved. Her performance and the original track 'Shallow' were already being touted to be award winners and well, they didn't disappoint. Lady Gaga performed 'Shallow' with Bradley today during the event and people had goose bumps all over again! #LadyGaga and #BradleyCooper heated up the 2019 #Oscars with an intimate performance of #Shallow ð¤ð https://t.co/ZRtqdIm2Wv pic.twitter.com/d4BAP9dHEb — People (@people) February 25, 2019 The beautiful lady has now her first ever Oscar and not just that, this win also elevated 'Shallow' to become the most awarded song in the history of music out there.

  23. The day has come. The day has finally come where people got to roast the man who roasts people on a regular basis online. And, the best part is desi people got to do that. Yes, a Thai chef also did that last year, but this time it's special because it involves butter chicken. Basically, Gordon Ramsay posted a picture of what I feel like is the worst looking butter chicken I have ever seen. He wrote he was eating the dish at Heathrow and he can't get on a flight before enjoying this first. But, it doesn't look right - or appetizing at all, tbh - and you should know that, Gordon. Take a look yourself. Can't get on a flight from Heathrow without enjoying the butter chicken curry at @PlaneFood.... #readyfortakeoff @HeathrowAirport pic.twitter.com/OVsLtluRkl — Gordon Ramsay (@GordonRamsay) February 18, 2019 Where is the naan, or roti, or something? What is happening? But, this did give desi people a chance to roast him and honestly, you can't fight a desi person when it comes to something like butter chicken, you just can't. It died for nothing! Not fair to that chicken! #depressed https://t.co/fyyhFmT0GZ — Anubhav Dev (@Anubhav_Dev_AFC) February 20, 2019 Truly. You kidding,right? Worst looking butter chicken plate ever!! — Vibs (@thisisvibs) February 19, 2019 Wow. Ganga bolkar gande naale mei kuda diya be! ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ — NISHANT (@thehungrytide) February 20, 2019 Exactly. Looks like an insult to the legendary dish! But, I hope it tastes good. It looks like the most Un-Indian thing#butterchicken #Foreignversion #firangistyle #Indiansentiments are #hurt ðð#foodrelegious #outfits are looking for Mr. Ramsay for not having naan along with that.. https://t.co/w0ITXLpu5I — iGoutam (@goutam7986) February 20, 2019 Don't do that, Gordon. Poor presentation. Rice looks stale. Don't post non veg photos on Tuesday ðð — Megha Agarwal (@meghaaagarwal) February 19, 2019 An insult to the dish. ohh! how dare you insult butterchicken by calling this as one of it. ð¤ð¡ Any trainee chef in India can make better butterchicken than this. — GauravKapoor (@GauravK04859991) February 20, 2019 It's just bad. pic.twitter.com/l5ydu79WC5 — RB2666 (@SundeepBallagan) February 18, 2019 Can't deal. @GordonRamsay You got Served!ð I wouldn't eat that if you paid me, what is that paper fan doing on the side?ð https://t.co/xuXyVKeJzm — Leena Devi (@LDChakraburtty) February 19, 2019 Some non-desi people also joined in to make fun of it. that rice looks like i could throw it at a wall and it would bounce back — Tamara Rara (@Tamara_ra_ra_ra) February 18, 2019 Yep. I watch your #KitchenNightmares and without a doubt if you was served that you would throw the 'green rubbish' off the plate ðð» — Christopher Logan (@CLCourtney82) February 18, 2019 It's really not.

  24. Every 80s or 90s kid has seen at least one Star Wars movie if not the entire series, which although consists of a lot of chapters, is worth a session of binge-watching (other than 'Solo', do NOT watch 'Solo'). Other than the fact that the series introduced us to one of the most iconic bad guys in Darth Vader and the wisest philosopher and master period, in Yoda, the elaborate lightsaber duels between the good and the evil was a primary reason for the geeks and nerds to stay up all night in long lines just to buy the movie tickets to the George Lucas classics. The whole concept of energy swords used for melee combats or for deflecting blaster bolts has been timeless and is one of the ideal weapons to have during the time of an apocalypse (personal choice). © AP Anyhow, it appears as if the Frenchmen responsible for sports in the country are bigger Star War geeks than the rest of the world took them to be. A nation of sword-fighting and fencing fans, France has officially recognised lightsaber dueling as a real sport. Believe it or not, the French Fencing Federation took this decision to encourage the younger generation to participate in the game instead of staying glued to their mobile phones and video game consoles. © AP “With young people today, it's a real public health issue,” federation secretary general Serge Aubailly told AP. “They don't do any sport and only exercise with their thumbs. It's becoming difficult to (persuade them to) do a sport that has no connection with getting out of the sofa and playing with one's thumbs.” Here are the two basic rules of lightsaber dueling: Rule 1: Before each blow, the lightsaber's tip must be brought backwards. Rule 2: Fighters have the option of waving the whole lightsaber, from tip to hilt, behind them or to their sides. That's not all. The Jedi-Sith dueling inspired 'sport' can soon make an appearance at the Olympics in the coming years as well. © AP ”We wanted it to be safe, we wanted it to be umpired and, most of all, we wanted it to produce something visual that looks like the movies, because that is what people expect,” tournament organiser Michel Ortiz told AP in Paris. Get your passports ready guys. Time to move to France. May the Force be with you.
  25. It's been a while since I've used a beautiful windows laptop and I got the opportunity to test out HP's latest x360 Convertible laptop. The laptop is a combination of productivity and good looks that cannot be matched by any other laptop right now. When you use the laptop in public, it sure is a head turner. However, the laptop is not only about the looks as it performs well in carrying out tasks, editing images and can even double up as a tablet. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla This versatility makes this one of the best Windows laptops I've ever used. Bear in mind that this laptop is not meant for gaming and is more for daily use such as video consumption, editing images/videos and listening to music. Let's find out how the laptop fared during the course of our review: Design © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla To call this laptop beautiful is an understatement. It looks more stylish than its previous model and the entire chassis is made of aluminium. HP calls it the 'gem cut' as it has angled edges which represents a diamond. The 'Dark Ash Grey' variant looks absolutely stunning with a gold rose finish that gives the laptop a modern look. The design itself also incorporates functionality as you can use it various positions i.e. as a laptop, a tablet, as a tent or in reverse mode. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The laptop is 14mm thin and weighs only 1.31 kg. It's comfortable to carry in your bag and adds to the factor of portability. The power button is also discreetly hidden in the left angled corner with blends in with the overall design of the laptop. The other angled corner houses a USB-C port which can be used for charging and doesn't get in the way of other ports. As the HP x360 has a brand new chassis, it has more room for extra ports such as a slot for microSD, a USB 3 Type A, and extra USB-C port and and audio jack. Display © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Spectre x360 comes with 13.3-inch UHD WLED IPS panel and is perfect for watching 4K content. The colour representation is accurate and the viewing angles are also up the mark. This laptop also comes with HP Sure View which basically blocks your display from prying eyes. You need to be directly in front of the laptop to see the content which is a handy feature to have in a busy environment. Having said that, the display is also a touchscreen which made it very reflective especially if you use it against the light. Sometimes we found it hard to even read our own text documents due to harsh reflections. Since this is a touchscreen panel with Corning Glass NBT, you will often find yourself cleaning your own fingerprints after using it in tablet mode. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The touchscreen, on the other hand, was quite intuitive and was accurate enough to quick launch applications and take noted with the supplied digital pen. You can always use the laptop in tablet mode by simply folding it back all the way. The hinges on the screen look sturdy and look like it can take enough abuse to last longer than its predecessors. Keyboard The keyboard on the HP Spectre x360 is a dream to use as it has comfortable keystrokes and has a satisfying sound. The keys also provide a 1.4mm key travel which is perfect for typing long documents and also this review. The one thing we didn't like were the three backlit modes for the keyboard as we would have loved to adjust it according to our own preference. The three modes are basically bright, medium bright and off which is not ideal for different room conditions. Security We've already mentioned by HP Sure View that blocks content from prying eyes, however, the HP x360 also has additional security measures such as a fingering scanner and Windows Hello. The fingerprint scanner was very accurate and fast at unlocking the laptop as 'Windows Hello' was not as reliable. Performance The HP Spectre x360 runs on Intel's latest quad-core Whiskey Lake processor that has been made specifically for productivity, video conferencing, web browsing and video streaming. The processor has a base frequency of 1.8 GHz and is more than enough for performing photo editing on Photoshop. Having said that, we would suggest you don't run any other application in the background as it can get quite heavy for the processor to handle the extra load. In terms of memory, the laptop comes with 16 GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM and cannot be upgraded if you wanted to. Internal storage is also quite impressive as it comes with a 1TB PCIe NVMe TLC SSD. For reference, the laptop got a respectable score of 3,846 in our PCMark 10 test which comes close to the performance of the XPS 13. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Probably our favourite feature of the HP Spectre x360 is the battery life. When using moderately, the laptop is capable of lasting over 20 hours however when using it for productivity and consuming content at the same time, the battery life would fall down to 14 hours. It still manages to last longer than other laptops with a similar configuration thanks to its 4-cell, 61 Wh Li-ion polymer battery. Audio Quality © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We normally don't talk about speakers in a laptop that much however there is something special going on with the HP Spectre x360. It has quad speakers that have been tuned by Bang & Olufsen. There are two speakers on the keyboard deck and two underneath giving it a very crystal clear sound. Having said that, the speakers are ideal for watching movies but you will notice the lack of bass when listening to music. The speakers on the laptop are placed in a manner that you can use them in any orientation i.e. tablet, laptop or in the tent position. This ensures that sound remains uniform in no matter which orientation you plan to use the laptop. The Final Say We used the laptop for a few weeks and we can easily say it's the most beautiful laptop we've ever used. It comes in three configuration where the starting price is Rs 1,39,990. It looks sexy and offers privacy protocols like the HP Sure View. The long battery life is definitely a winner for people who plan to use the HP Spectre x360 on the move. If you are currently looking for a premium Windows laptop, you cannot ignore the HP Spectre x360.
