  1. We've seen so many pictures that were clicked right before catastrophe struck and half the time they're chilling and the rest of the time they're funny. Now, there's a picture that's going viral that was clicked just an hour before the Notre Dame Cathedral fire started and it's going viral for all the right reasons. Brooke Windsor managed to capture a beutiful moment right in front of Notre Dame and clicked a heartwarming picture of what seems like a father and daughter playing around and having fun. While it is already an adorable picture, what makes it special was that it was clicked about an hour before the terrible fire occured at the historical place. I took this photo as we were leaving #NotreDame about an hour before it caught on fire. I almost went up to the dad and asked if he wanted it. Now I wish I had. Twitter if you have any magic, help him find this ðð¼ pic.twitter.com/pEu33ubqCK — Brooke Windsor (@brookeawindsor) April 16, 2019 I don't have to tell anyone about teh power of social media and that's why Brooke also asked everyone to help her find them so they can have this memorable picture. Ever since she shared this on Twitter, the picture and the tweet and have gone viral with everyone trying to help out in any way they can, even if it's just a retweet. The replies to the tweet also became a place where everyone shared their own last picture of Notre Dame and they're all so beautiful. Inside before the fires. Taken on 4/15/2019 pic.twitter.com/bXEECcD0Qt — Craig L (@Renewlifenow) April 16, 2019 My last photos of our beautiful Notre Dame 𤧠mon cœur est brisé pic.twitter.com/r0xAEDBRXg — X claire X (@ladybaguettee) April 16, 2019 Even Brooke shared the picture where they started seeing smoke coming out of the Cathedral. -We walked to the Louvre afterwards. My friends noticed the smoke, and we followed (2/?) pic.twitter.com/l76nF0jAIv — Brooke Windsor (@brookeawindsor) April 16, 2019 This particular story is pretty similar to viral story from last year when someone clicked a picture of two strangers getting engaged and managed to capute that memorable moment at Yosemite National Park. Twitter help, idk who these two are but I hope this finds them. I took this at Taft Point at Yosemite National Park, on October 6th, 2018. pic.twitter.com/Rdzy0QqFbY — Matthew Dippel (@TheCornChips) October 17, 2018 Good news though, he managed to finally find them so there's a lort of hope for the Notre Dame picture as well.
  2. Life is a game of Snakes and Ladders; sometimes you move up and sometimes you are back to square one in the most brutal fashion. But the secret lies in learning from your failures to rewrite your success. This particular strength of character was shown by none other than the controversial golfer Tiger Woods, who made a prolific comeback to the top of the pile, over the weekend. He ended his 11-year major title drought by winning his fifth Masters title at Augusta National Golf Club on Sunday. A valiant two-under 70 clinched a one-shot victory over Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Xander Schauffele that earned the veteran the glory. The story of Woods, who hugged his father Earl after his long-due win, is nothing short of dramatic. He also cherished the opportunity to scoop his son Charlie into his arms after winning his 'Fifth Green Jacket' almost 14 years after his last. Tiger Woods has won the Masters. His 81st PGA TOUR win. His 15th major title. His 5th green jacket.#LiveUnderPar pic.twitter.com/xC8165hypE — PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) April 14, 2019 "Prior to this comeback", Woods had said, "they only knew that golf caused me a lot of pain". The 43-year-old champion has been broken in so many ways but a moment with Charlie, the ensuing embrace of his mother Kultida and then of Sam, was telling of the soulful eventual glory. Astonishingly, when Woods won his 14 major championships - changing golf as he did so - his son wasn't even born, and his daughter was less than a year old for the last. And now, when he broke through for a historic 15th, they joined him, ecstatic, on a Sunday that reshaped golf again. © Reuters In his professional career of 23 years, Woods has been through a whole lot of controversies. Beginning in 2005, when he started having knee troubles, to later being accused of having an extra-marital affair with a nightclub worker, it was just where the tide began to turn. Later in February 2010, the golfer lost many promotion deals, including those of General Motors and Gatorade. He made an apology, not only to his wife (whom he divorced earlier in the year) but to the world following this incident. “I thought I could get away with whatever I wanted to,” he stated. “I felt that I had worked hard my entire life and deserved to enjoy all the temptations around me.” “I felt I was entitled. Thanks to money and fame, I didn't have far – didn't have to go far to find them. I was wrong. I was foolish.” He also stated that he enrolled in therapy programs to address such issues. With his back against the wall, Woods was just an inch away from one thing, and that was going to jail, which he later did when he was involved in a car accident in November 2009. Following a spinal surgery, in 2017, Woods was on a heavy dose of medications which made him drowsy the entire day. Later that year, Woods was arrested again for driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs. Woods told the police that he was in recovery from the surgery. When the police arrested him, the golfer was allegedly asleep, with the car's engine running and standing still in the middle of traffic. Woods said that he did not realise that the prescription drugs he was taking would affect his sleep patterns. However, he later agreed to complete the out-of-state intensive program that addressed his ways of handling his pain and his medications. Despite going through all the ups and downs in his life, pure determination brought Woods back into the limelight and placed him where he is today. This triumph brought back the talks of Woods making a run at Jack Nicklaus's record of 18 majors. And especially, after a beaming Woods slipped on his fifth Green Jacket, he will be aware that Sunday's win has brought him tantalisingly close to another Nicklaus record – that of six Augusta titles. With a hope that the Tiger roars again, we wish that he achieves all the glory forthcoming his way.
  3. Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt are big names in Bollywood, and yesterday must have been a big day for the two mega stars when it was announced that Salman and Alia are all set to officially grace the screens as a lead pair in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next film titled 'Inshallah'. After a gap of 20 years, Salman and Bhansali will be seen working together, their last film together being 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam'. Salman took to Twitter to share the announcement and said that he is looking forward to the journey. It's been 20 years but I am glad Sanjay and I are finally back in his next film, Inshallah. Looking forward to work with Alia and inshallah we will all be blessed on this journey.#Inshallah #SLB @aliaa08 @bhansali_produc @SKFilmsOfficial — Salman Khan (@BeingSalmanKhan) March 19, 2019 Alia also confirmed on Twitter that she had been roped in as the female lead in Bhansali's next opposite Salman. She also stated that she is looking forward to work with Salman and Bhansali for this film. Dream with your eyes wide open they say & I did. Sanjay Sir and Salman Khan are magical together & I can't wait to join them on this beautiful journey called “Inshallah” â¤#Inshallah #SLB @BeingSalmanKhan @bhansali_produc @SKFilmsOfficial @prerna982 — Alia Bhatt (@aliaa08) March 19, 2019 Soon after, Alia posted another tweet sharing with her followers that she has waited for a long time to live her dream of working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. I was 9 when I first walked into Sanjay Leela Bhansali's office, all nervous and hoping and praying that I would be in his next film. It's been a long wait. — Alia Bhatt (@aliaa08) March 19, 2019 However, Twitter couldn't digest the pairing as well as the 30-year age gap between the lead actors. That gave rise to speculations over the plot of the movie and Twitter thinks 'Inshallah' might be a story about a father and daughter's relationship on the basis of the casting. Pretty soon, an ancient photo of Salman and Alia was dug out to make their point, and netizens haven't been able to shut up ever since. Who would've thought they will work together as a lead pair. ð#Inshallah pic.twitter.com/nTw6DlHuTw — Sky! (@being_Akash_) March 19, 2019 Well, what can we say? This really does seem a little odd to be honest. Finally a movie on father n daugher relationship ...#INSHALLAH m sure @BeingSalmanKhan nd @aliaa08 rock it. — Archit (@mehta183) March 19, 2019 looks like they've broken the bollywood internet with the announcement ð¹#Inshallah pic.twitter.com/vCQ7L7sw46 — Hud Hud Dabangg (@HudHud_Dabangg) March 19, 2019 salman khan and alia bhatt working together .i think it's biopic of milind soman .#INSHALLAH boys played well#bhansali_production pic.twitter.com/mnsz670RVH — lagbhag Phoenix (@sleepoholic_hun) March 19, 2019 #Inshallah story of Father 53 yrs @BeingSalmanKhan & daughter 26 yrs @aliaa08 what a concept sir ji @SLBhansali_ ððð — Karan Singh Walia (@karansinghw1) March 20, 2019 Will look like this #Inshallah pic.twitter.com/umotMmGxKk — Nikhil (@nicksdmehta) March 20, 2019 #Inshallah baap beti in #SLB next@BeingSalmanKhan baap@aliaa08 beti pic.twitter.com/JVX2nSCCvh — I'msweetie (@jaysairaam) March 20, 2019 However, Salman Khan's fans are extremely thrilled by the announcement. Amazing news! @BeingSalmanKhan and #SanjayLeelaBhansali will be teaming up for #inshallah after 20 years with my favourite @aliaa08! I can't wait to see the beautiful sets, cinematography & magic that this team brings to the table! @Bhansali_Prod @SKFilmsOfficial pic.twitter.com/s8yiGdn6rR — Siddhant (@Siddhant_46_46) March 20, 2019 @BeingSalmanKhan n @aliaa08 starrer #Inshallah is a dark intense movie ððððððððseems like it has got a huge potential — Emperor Khan (@TheDevilShahbaz) March 20, 2019 Universal appealing mass title ð¥#InshAllah ð Indian audience appealing patriots title #Bharat ðð®ð³@BeingSalmanKhan ð Can't wait, box office all records in danger ! — BHARAT DABANGG3 INSHALLAH ðSalman (@BeingRajuu) March 20, 2019 Trolls are always active online and by no means are we saying that we support them, because acting has nothing to do with age, and if the director has decided to cast Salman and Alia for a film, there must be a solid reason behind it.
  4. If you're already sealing your future right now, I am sure you've decided what you really want. It's rather simple to foresee something but a tad difficult to live by the facts of it. What I mean is, if you're building your future, you obviously want financial security, a family, a good house and everything else that adult life needs for you to sustain and be happy all at once. But apart from all that, there are a few things that need vital attention more than anything else. There are certain parameters you should cross while deciding a future and it's okay to delve into them from time to time. © Twitter If having kids is on your agenda, then you already know how many you'd like to have and what kind of value system you'd instil within them. But the most crucial thing to think about is what kind of a father will you be. Being a father is the most important role you can ever don and if you're certain of being a father and raising good kids, then you have to be sure about the qualities you possess to make you someone your kids look up to. Here are 3 main qualities every man should have to be a good father: (1) He Is Protective While the sense of protection for the next of kin is innate, it's a quality not all men possess. Being protective is, of course, inherited with the association you have with people. Most men are very protective of their friends, especially women friends. Not because they like them but because they treat them as someone they need to protect. It's not just women but he takes care of everyone he is close to and that is one quality that transcends and reflects in his association with his kids. He will always set boundaries for them and protect them from anything and everything. © Pintrest (2) He Is Trustworthy That may sound ambiguous but most men, you can trust with your eyes closed, make for good fathers. That's because he will never turn his back on anyone, especially family, when in time of need. If you're the kind of guy who has stuck through the toughest times and been there for your friends and family, then be assured you'll do the same with your future family too. © Pintrest (3) He Is Patient & Encouraging If you've always been a source of encouragement for your friends and family, at any given point in time, you're definitely going to do the same for your kids too. Be it a football match or a test of some form, you'll always be there encouraging them and that's what children need the most. Apart from encouragement, children also need a lot of patience. There are very few men who're good listeners and are patient at the same time. If you spend time listening to someone's problems and give them advice patiently, you're already on your way to becoming a good dad. © Pintrest Apart from these three qualities, of course, men have to be sensitive enough to perceive a child's mind and also take steps to become an affluent teacher in their lives. So, if you're looking to become a good father, start fostering these qualities and try them out on your friends and family, because only if you have them now, you'll be able to impart them to your children in the future.
  5. Suniel Shetty might be the fittest, most stylish dad in Bollywood, but his son Ahan is not far behind, and it seems like the lad has inherited all of his dad's charming, magnetic personality. Ahan looks almost identical to Mr Shetty, and he has got the whole 'effortless swag' thing going on as well. Here are 10 pictures which prove that: 1. First sign: That jawline. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ahan Shetty (@ahan.shetty) on Nov 14, 2018 at 4:08am PST 2. Have we not seen Mr Shetty rocking leather jackets like that throughout the '90s?

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ahan Shetty (@ahan.shetty) on Feb 8, 2019 at 3:35am PST All the best for the future, Ahan!
  6. Yesterday, India was hit by one of the worst terrorist attacks with over 40 brave Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans losing their lives in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district. The attack that happened by Jaish terrorists targeted a convoy with a car bomb. The country is mourning the loss of all the martyred jawans and is praying for the speedy recovery of those injured. It's terrible how something like this is what it takes to unite the country but at least everyone is in this together. Just a few hours after the attack, father of martyred CRPF Personnel Ratan Thakur talked to ANI and in a heart-wrenching message said that he is willing to send his other son to fight as well for Mother India. CRPF Personnel Ratan Thakur's (who lost his life in #PulwamaTerrorAttack ) father in Bhagalpur: I have sacrificed a son in Mother India's service, I will send my other son as well to fight, ready to give him up for Mother India, but Pakistan must be given a befitting reply.#Bihar pic.twitter.com/rI6cM38Agh — ANI (@ANI) February 15, 2019 We can't even imagine how he must be feeling losing his son in such a heart-breaking cowardly attack but we know that he deserves all our respect. Even while going through such a tough time, he put on a brave face to tell everyone the most important thing right now, “I have sacrificed a son in Mother India's service, I will send my other son as well to fight, ready to give him up for Mother India, but Pakistan must be given a befitting reply.” People have nothing but respect for him and all the families mourning such a huge loss right now. Respect ðð Jab tak inke jaise pita iss desh mein hai, hamara ð®ð³ lahrata rahega. Salute ð®ð³ — Irony Man (@karanku100) February 15, 2019 Very important. This is a parallel India.

No. But they don't complain either. — THE SKIN DOCTOR (@theskindoctor13) February 15, 2019 It shouldn't, it can't. My eyes are filled with tears today. i bow to you sir.

  7. One of the most astonishing moments in Indian cricket history was its larger-than-life win at the 1983 World Cup. The newly appointed cricket captain then, Kapil Dev, took India towards victory against West Indies, at the Lord's Cricket Ground in London. Now, Kabir Khan is re-creating India's greatest cricket impact into a movie and we just can't wait for its release in April 2020. Meanwhile, Ranveer Singh is gearing up to play Indian skipper Kapil Dev along with Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, who'll play Ghavri. South Indian actor Jiiva will play Srikkanth and Ammy Virk will play Balwinder Singh Sandhu. Along with the chosen actors who'll play the then team members, we have a new casting and we're super excited about it. Sandeep Patil's son, Chirag Patil has joined the cast and crew and he'll be playing Sandeep Patil's role, as a middle-order batsman. © Twitter Chirag has acted in about 11 Marathi and Hindi films and he definitely can't wait to recreate history, under the captaincy of Ranveer Singh! After all, it's the first time a son is ever playing his father, in a Bollywood movie! “I'm really excited, the '83 World Cup win is considered a milestone in Indian history and to be a part of that team is a dream come true and playing my father who's my hero is just awesome. I don't think any actor has ever played his father on screen, I'm a first, luckily I landed the part" Chirag told a popular publication. The man who played '83 world cup with broken ribs will be played by his son, @IamChiragpatil. #CastOf83#SandeepPatil @RanveerOfficial @kabirkhankk @RelianceEnt #MadhuMantena @vishinduri #Relive83 pic.twitter.com/KpbrxLTfE2 — '83 (@83thefilm) 4 February 2019 Although Chriag has never played cricket professionally, but during the practice session for the movie, conducted by Balwinder Sandhu, the lad practiced his father's stance well and played his shots naturally. The reel-team has been under training since August and Chirag admitted to the fact that he has also been training under Chandrakant Pandit's Cricket Academy (CPCC), whenever he gets the free time. The boy is trying his best to play exactly like his dad, while following Tendulkar's philosophy of giving it your best shot and leaving the rest to God. © Twitter Both father and son share a great camaraderie and Sandeep is thrilled with the idea of his son recreating the World Cup win. "Every time we would talk about the World Cup victory, Chirag's eyes would light up. From the first match to the finals and the after-party, I've shared so many memories with him,” Sandeep Patil told a popular publication in an interview. In the World Cup in '83, Sandeep hit one of the final sixes for India to win the match against West Indies, and he dared to play the match with broken ribs! He scored 27 from 29 balls, in India's score of 183, and West Indies were bowled out for 140. What a time to be alive, TBH! © Twitter Although Chirag's never seen his dad play, as he retired before Chirag was born, we're sure Sandeep has given him enough life lessons in cricket and otherwise, for him to do a great job in the movie. Here's wishing Chirag all the luck for one of the best roles he'll ever play in life.
  8. Scenario 1: Dad: So, what are you doing with your life? Son: *silence* Scenario 2: Dad: Hello Beta, kaise ho? Khana ho gaya? Son: Haa, ho gya. Mai thik hu. Aap kaise hai? Dad: Mai thik hu. Accha mummy se baat karo. *conversation ends* Does this sound familiar? I bet it does. Of all the people we meet and get acquainted with, it is our father who is the first male presence in our life; our role model, our hero and someone we look up to but are eternally scared of. Indian dads and sons are a complicated lot and their relationship is even more complex. The dynamics of the relationship change dramatically; a bit like Tom and Jerry. Truth be told, we have always had a love-hate relationship with our fathers. Mothers are the fun one, they nurture you, spoil you, care for you. Fathers are the ones who are the strict ones, who reprimand you when you do something wrong. There is a time when they love you dearly, but as you start growing up, you sense a sort of detachment from them. Baba, Papa, Abba, Dad, Appa, Pitaji, Babuji, Baoji; all these words instil a sense of respect, along with a sense of fear as well. We delved into what causes this rift between these two which makes bonding a hassle: 1. Unfulfilled Aspirations: Takiya Kalam: Par tum doctor/engineer kyun nahi banna chahte? Everyone has dreams; some of them get fulfilled, others get cut down due to circumstances. Imagine a young man in his prime who couldn't achieve his heart's desire and decides that his son will carry on the baton. While it is not wrong for a father to have a dream for his son and live their dreams through their children, some fathers downright force their aspirations down their children's throats. This kind of an attitude enables animosity in the son, who goes out of his way to try to live up to the expectations and trying his best, but doesn't seem to make his father happy, eventually hating himself and his father. What we need to understand is that it is not compulsory that sons will follow their father's dreams, if one does so of their own will, it is fantastic, but having a pre-defined path already set in stone for you may not be comfortable. 2. The Inability To Show Emotion: Takiya Kalam: Thik hai. Aur accha karo! Handling emotions have never been the strong suit of men. Showing emotion is portrayed as a flaw, especially in a patriarchal society like ours. Our fathers have always been strong; no tears, no love-dovey talks, just plain tough love. A trait learnt from their fathers. Saying 'I love you', giving a hug or showing emotion is seen as non-masculine, and our society has a very deep-rooted (read misguided) sense of what constitutes masculinity. What they do not realize is that this ingrains the same behaviour in an impressionable, young mind. A son looks up to his father as the person who will show him the ways of the world and help them. So, when they do not show any affection or emotion towards them, it instils rejection and hurt in the mind of the son; leading him to have an aloof relationship, not only with his father but future relationships as well. 3. Being 'The Man': Takiya Kalam: Ladke ye nahi karte… From an early childhood, a son is taught to be the man of the house; it is implicated by the father that he needs to be the sole patriarch of the family after him. He must man up and step into his father's shoes and become the “paterfamilias”. It is an unspoken rule; a regulation that needs to be followed. For a young adolescent, it is increasingly difficult to understand the complexities of adult life, let alone have the burden of “being the man” thrust upon him. Moreover, if the son decides to follow a career in something other than so-called manly pursuits, it is the father, more time rather than less, who will always ask him to follow a career more socially acceptable for a man. Majority of Indian parents have a hard time supporting their children in endeavours the society frowns upon. 4. Toughening Up: Takiya Kalam: Ro mat! Ladke nahi rote! Whenever you fell, your dad made it a point to tell to stop crying about it and brush it aside. That is the way they had always been taught to deal with their problems; they were trying to make you tough. Crying or whining was frowned upon; it made you a ninny. 'Boys don't cry' is such an adage that makes men think that it is a sign of weakness. It's high time that we change it. Crying is not for weaklings, but our dads sue made us feel it was. 5. Worldly-Wise: Takiya Kalam: Duniya aese nahi chalti! In the process of making their sons worldly-wise, dads often employ tactics and lessons which might not be always good. The first time you were duped by the shopkeeper or had any mishap, instead of explaining it you would most probably get lectured about it. The echoing “the world doesn't function the way you want to” dialogue is mandatory. Though it may have seemed like the worst thing that time, it did shape you as an adult, but not in the best way possible. You would try to hide any mistakes you committed so that you would not get another verbal berating. Dads are just trying to make you street-smart so that you don't make the same mistakes they did. 6. Enforcing The Rules: Takiya Kalam: Bas keh diya! Monica says, rules help control the fun. Indian fathers are a step ahead: enforce rules quite heavily so that there is little fun. Rules, when too binding, constrict a person. Having too many rules instils rebellion in the child especially if physical violence is involved. The control being forced upon them makes them have even more animosity towards their dads. Slapping, beating or disparaging doesn't work, it only agitates the young child. He may not shy away to employ the same on others. It becomes a struggle for supremacy; the son wanting more freedom and the dad trying even harder to show the son the fault in his ways. Also, the legendary sass of Indian dads is unparalleled; “Lights to tumhare papa band karenge” or “Papa to ATM hi hain” which is funny to hear but does make you feel irritated. 7. Generation Gap: Takiya Kalam: Hamare zamaane me… © Pinterest The biggest bone of contention is the generation gap: there is a huge difference in the era and conditions our fathers were brought up and the time in which we are now. There are things that they might have a hard time understanding, like mobile phones or laptops for example. They might not always like the music you listen to, the games you play or the shows you see or the way you are growing up; which is fine. You might have been often treated to the iconic, “Hamare zamaane me to hum aisa karte the” or “Hamare zamaane me hum badon se zubaan nahi ladate the.” The son needs to understand that their father is just trying to be relevant; he is unsure about how his son perceives him in this new era. Instead, the son tries to belittle the father or make fun of their choices and thus increases the strain in the already fragile relationship. 8. Communication: Takiya Kalam: Lo, maa se baat karo… Psychology suggests that sons are more comfortable with their mothers instead of their fathers; it is somewhere true. Remember the discomfort you felt when a condom ad or *** scene came up while you and your father were watching television? The channel would get changed immediately or you would start faltering and stuttering while your father would put up a stoic silence. When it comes to *** or some other hard topic, Indian fathers typically shy away from talking about it. It is not limited to just ***, having a conversation with your father is rather difficult. Other than enquiring about your being or some other superficial topic, the conversation ends there. Also, the son doesn't like coming up with any topics in the fear of ending up with a life-long lecture or not having any topic to talk about because it has always been like this, you never bothered to ask about what interests him and vice versa. 9. Appreciation & Comparisons: Takiya Kalam: Sirf 98 aaye hai? 2 marks kaha gaye? Sharmaji ka beta 100 number laya! © iDiva Instead of appreciating what the son has achieved, most fathers try to focus their attention on what he needs to work on. Though it might be a good thing in the future, the want for appreciation remains unfulfilled which gives rise to a sense of anger and despair in the son. He starts thinking that he is unable to obtain his father's approval and his level of acceptance. The pedestal created by the father for his son hampers their relationship. Acting like salt to a wound, Indian fathers have a habit of comparing their sons with his contemporaries. "If Rahul got 98 why did you not get 100? Though they are just pushing you to better yourself, never appreciating your efforts makes one sad. "Making comparisons doesn't make anyone better, it just makes you doubt yourself more. Some dads unknowingly become unkind to their sons; be it comments on their appearance or their habits. This all leads to a feeling of worthlessness in the son. 10. Pride: Takiya Kalam: “Baap humesha baap hota hai” © Afran Productions/Paramount Pictures Fathers are proud beings, and justly so. They have suffered and brought you up; so, when a son does not show the proper respect to his father, it serves as an insult to their ego and pride. They are not comfortable in asking you for help, they will always see it as a step down from their role of the provider and nurturer. As a young adult, with raging hormones and the sense of insecurity, sons give their fathers a hard time by not explaining new things which they don't understand, further enraging the father. The son seeks vindication for all the hurtful things by not helping out and ending up hurting the father's pride. How Can We Rectify this? Fathers need to understand that their words have a profound impact on their sons. They need to shed the armour once in a while, to show their sons that they are fun too. They need to give the son a break; it is beneficial for both. The son needs to understand that behind that grumpy façade and rule-loving face, lies the man who wants the best for you and loves you. The ways he shows may not be always great, but it is your responsibility as the son to understand it. © Pixar Animation Studios/Walt Disney Pictures Bonding with your father is an extremely important aspect of life. He is the first man in your life, the person who will be there always, supporting and guiding you, not always in the way you want. Fathers are also human, they are bound to say things, commit mistakes. Do not hold grudges; talk with them. Listen to their stories, their words of wisdom; they have a lot to say. In retrospect, you will find that he was correct a lot of times, though you may not have felt that way at that moment. © T-series Tell him your experiences, hang out with him. Even if he is of a non-talkative sort, indulge him. Do things for him without being asked to. If you know he likes something, get it for him. He might fake annoyance, but he will be secretly delighted that you remembered. Catch a movie with him, call him more often. If you feel sorry for the way you treated him in the past, apologize, give him a hug. Explain things to him, like technology, which you know he has a hard time adapting to. Be vocal about your love, it is never too late. Try to become friends with him. Whoever said that sons and fathers can never be friends was wrong. Try to understand him and you will see that he has warmed up to you. This is the way you can build a better relationship with your father. © Abc Look at movies like 'The Pursuit of Happyness' and 'Sanju'; these movies show how fathers are not always vocal about things. They are behind-the-curtain men, who make the movie of your life work. A father's love is hidden, it isn't as demonstrative as a mother's, but it doesn't mean that both are different; you just need to unearth the layers.
  9. Stan Lee, the father of Marvel comics, is better known to the world as the creator (read god) of a galaxy of superheroes, that every millennial has grown up with vivid memories of. We have had our share of Iron Man's grit, Hulk's bulk that's representative of his emotions, Captain America's towering presence, besides discovering the many facets of all the other memorable characters that Lee created, over the years. He breathed his last on 12th November, at the age of 95. Social media is abuzz with a gazillion people sharing their personal encounters with the jovial star, while others have simply joined in to bid him a sad goodbye. While the entire world mourns the loss of a legend, actors who brought Lee's creations to life on the big screen came together to pay their tributes in their own special ways. From Chris Evans to Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo, here's how the 'Avengers' stars said their final goodbye to the Marvel universe creator, the legendary Stan Lee.

  10. When the 'Time's Up' movement started, people really meant that. Time is literally up when it comes to tolerating any kind of sexual misconduct and harassment. A lot of people have been getting away for so long, but no more. One after another, everyone is getting exposed and well, it was about time. The first thing that has been confirmed after the 'Me Too' and 'Time's Up' movement is that the entire world is filled with sleazeballs who don't know the meaning of consent. The second is that, almost always, it's the person you least expect it to be and this couldn't have been truer for Alok Nath. I mean, the guy was basically known for his 'sanskaars' more than anything and even became a meme because of it. But obviously, after the recent developments, everyone knows that the 'sanskaars' he has in particular, no one should ever have those. © Twitter He has already been accused of rape by filmmaker Vinta Nanda and now, another woman from the film industry has come forward to share her account of the sexual harassment she faced, proving that workplace sexual harassment is one of the biggest concerns right now. Actress Sandhya Mridul shared her personal experience of working with Alok Nath back in the day, with HuffPost India. FYI, keep in mind this happened at the very start of her career and she has been working since 1994, so Alok Nath has been getting away with this for more than two decades. In truth & solidarity. I'm with you @vintananda #metoo pic.twitter.com/ZoiT2dT3yL — Sandhya Mridul (@sandymridul) October 10, 2018 She said, “At the very start of my career, I was shooting a telefilm in Kodaikanal. I was the lead. And very excited. Alok Nath was my on-screen father and Reema Lagoo my mother. Alok Nath was very impressed with me and called me "God's own child" and openly praised me every day. I was over the moon. I was a huge fan of this wonderful Babuji... I felt so fortunate happy and confident. Till one night after an early pack up. The cast went out for dinner. At dinner, he got progressively drunk and started insisting I sit with him and that I belonged to him and other stuff that I don't clearly remember but it made me very nervous and uncomfortable. My co-star realised what was happening and got me out of there. We went back to the hotel without dinner. It was late and I was back in my room and the costume dada came to my room to give me my clothes for the next day as I had a very early call time. Few minutes after he left there was a knock on my door I opened the door thinking it was him again...it was an inebriated Alok Nath. I instinctively tried to shut the door but he pushed it and lunged at me, I stepped aside he went flying past me into the room...I fell back toward the bathroom door he lunged at me again screaming 'I want you you're mine'...I dodged again, he went into the bathroom and I think I latched the loo door and ran out of my room down the corridor into the lobby. Fortunately, my DoP was there making a call from the reception. He came back to my room and what ensued was traumatic because a belligerent Alok Nath refused to leave...kept screaming shouting threatening abusing trying to grab me...but at some point, we managed to make him leave. The hairdresser was called and made to sleep in my room, I was so shaken up. In a few hours, I had scenes with Bauji, in one I had to sit on his lap and cry. I still feel nauseous when I think of it. It didn't stop there...every evening he would drink and every night calls were made to my room. I dreaded the ring...I had to keep it off the hook most of the times. But then he would come calling. It was a catch 22 situation. I had the hairdresser moved into my room permanently. I was a nervous wreck.” â¦I'm so sorry â¦@sandymridulâ© for what you have been through. I can imagine how traumatising even narrating back this ordeal must be. Thankyou for sharing this. You empower many to speak up. #TimesUp #MeTooIndia https://t.co/ndu5oHGbGQ — Mumbai Ki Rani (@mymalishka) October 10, 2018 It got so bad, she fell ill because of the constant stress. She went on, “A few days later I got very sick & was laid up and couldn't shoot. The stress had broken me. He continued to traumatise me with calls. And knocks. The hairdresser would answer. One day when he landed up at the door and cried and begged to be allowed in to apologise...I couldn't take it anymore. I told her to accompany him in...he pulled a chair next to my bed and howled. Said he was an alcoholic and that he had destroyed everything, his family his marriage, everything, and I was like his daughter and he respected me and that he was very sorry. He says he had learnt his lesson and that he would go to therapy and change it all. I finally broke my silence. I screamed, shouted, cried and it was done. I believed him. I had to. He left. He got away. I don't know how I shot with him for the remaining days and weeks. I'm grateful to my co-actors, my DOP & especially the late Reema Lagoo for finally taking him on & protecting me like a mother from then on. But it was too late. The damage was done. A very disillusioned, disgraced & unsure me returned home. He went on to return to Bombay and tell people I was difficult and arrogant. All apologies forgotten. He was a popular man, I was a newbie. He laid the foundation that others like him built on. All those who heard 'No'. Attitude my biggest crime. The deal breaker. Mr. Alok Nath. You know this to be true. As do few others.” Terrifying account of sexual assault & harassment by Alok Nath — this time by @SandyMridul, a wonderful actor we simply don't see enough on screen. https://t.co/SHZGD6wK2e — Shiv Aroor (@ShivAroor) October 10, 2018 She went on to talk about the other accusation he's facing, saying, “I had to forgive you for myself then and for my sanity but I will never forgive you for what you did with Vinta. Whom I have always respected and loved. I stand by you Vinta. What I went through is nothing compared to you. I'm so sorry. More power to you. To us all. I'm certain there are others. I urge you to come forward. “Your time is up Sir”.” After sharing her account, she also talked about the war against sexual harassment that's going on right now. She said, “The problem is sexual harassment has been open to interpretation. I come from a time when nobody wanted to hear. I was a nobody. When I tried to speak I was labelled arrogant and difficult. And replaced from work. And there was no social media to make ourselves heard, directly. It's taken me years to lay those demons to rest and move on. And just stay away from it all. But it never actually goes away. Does it? I do little work because I do it with people I trust. And those who respect me. My choices. I felt I had two choices then. One, to fight for work or two to preserve my dignity. And stay away from the conflict, the ugliness and embarrassment to me and my family. Which to me meant silence. I chose the latter. At that point. It's way different now, they know me so I'm spared. From abuse. And from work. Even though I managed to escape or prevent it somehow and it never reached the point where I was assaulted physically. My soul was. My creativity was. My career was. But I stood my ground. As shaky as it got. My bold bindaas badass image comes from there. But nobody wanted to work with "such a woman." Yes, I was told that. On many occasions. My career was set in stone. What Tanushree has started is admirable. I'm happy now women can speak go on social media. So, there's that platform. And it's pretty powerful. I believe. We have a voice finally. I have a lot more to say. But it's been buried so long. I need to dig up what I buried. For that, I need more courage and clarity. I need time. Yes, some of us need time. To dig into the shame and darkness we've buried to be able to work with strength and dignity. I'm work in progress. And where do I begin? So much happened that I can't remember. And the worst part is I don't have evidence anymore. Except for me. But I stand with Tanushree. And Vinta. And every woman. Who has been through this & will follow suit and break her silence. We have a voice. I'd like to tell all the newcomers that they should use it. Correctly. Honestly. Wisely. Fearlessly. Don't be ashamed. Don't be scared. Don't bury. Don't let it fester. And corrode your soul. Let's Speak. Let's keep this fire going. #TimesUp” Source – HuffPost India
  11. Irrespective of the sport, every athlete dreams about representing their country on the international stage. It's needless to say that all their training and hard work eventually culminates to making the motherland proud. But, while everyone aims to carry the baton for their respective homelands, only a handful are able to deliver under immense pressure. However, when you add an ailing father into the picture and the fact that an athlete had to leave him behind to represent his country at the coveted 2018 Asian Games, the amount of pressure on that sportsperson is arguably beyond measure. Tajinderpal Singh Toor found himself in a similar situation not very long ago. The Indian shot-putter was ready to travel to Indonesia where athletes from different countries were going to lock horns in a bid to secure a medal at this year's Asian Games. But, while the opportunity of representing India at such a major tournament got Tajinderpal excited, it also meant that he had to leave his father - who was battling cancer - behind. © AP The situation that Tajinderpal found himself in can easily affect any athlete and throw them off their game. But, Tajinderpal used it as a source of motivation - something not many are capable of doing. He began the men's shot put final with a brilliant effort, but then struggled in following attempts. This was the time when his coach MS Dhillon reminded him of all the sacrifices he had made to be there. And, the result was a 20.75m throw - a new Asian Games records and a gold-medal finish for an emotional Tajinderpal. It was a performance that highlighted an individual's ability to overcome all odds and come out on top. Overwhelmed with emotions, Tajinderpal couldn't hide his feelings as to what the Asian Games gold meant to him and his family. "This is my biggest achievement because a lot of sacrifices have been made. For the last two years, my father (Karam Singh) has been battling with cancer. My family though never let me get distracted. They allowed me to chase my dream. A lot of sacrifices have been made by my family and friends and all those have paid today," Tajinderpal, overwhelmed with emotions, had told TOI after winning the Asiad gold. "My family never pressurised to attend my father in hospital and it was always my friends who took care of all the hospital formalities in my absence. I have not gone home much in this period since I was training in Dharamsala. Now I will meet my dad but I will be there for only two days. I have to get ready for the next challenge. My coach MS Dhillon also needs to be credited for the hard work put in by him," the Indian athlete had added. © AP It was undoubtedly the best gift a son can give to his father, and an athlete to a country. But, fate had different plans for Tajinderpal. His happiness was going to be short-lived. AFI is in deep shock.We received Tejinder Toor,our Asian Shot Put Champion Gold Medalist at the airport last night & as he was on his way to hotel, sad news of his father's demise reached us. May his soul rest in eternal peace. Our heartfelt condolences to Tajinder & his family. pic.twitter.com/ZmtAvrhh3r — Athletics Federation of India (@afiindia) September 4, 2018 Excited to return to his hometown Moga in Punjab, Tajinderpal landed at the airport late on 3rd September. The Indian sportsperson was on his way to the hotel with the Athletics Federation of India (AFI) officials when he was struck with a heavy blow. He was informed that his father had lost his battle to cancer. Karam Singh, father of Tejinder Singh Toor who won gold in shot put in Asian games 2018 is no more. He was suffering from cancer. This is his last video perhaps when media visited his home to cover story and congratulate him. RIP #Punjab #Moga #Sports pic.twitter.com/iF46bNZPom — Arshdeep (@arsh_kaur7) September 4, 2018 The man whose troubles had inspired Tajinderpal to Asiad gold had passed away. His father had a last wish of holding his son's Asiad gold in his hands, but, sadly, it couldn't be fulfilled. "I can't speak to my father. Because of the cancer in his throat, he can't speak to me over the phone. But I know he is proud of me," Tajinderpal had told ESPN after his triumph in Indonesia. Newly crowned Asian Games champion Shot putter Tejinder Pal Singh Toor's father passed away after his brave battle with cancer. May God rest his soul in peace . ॠशाà¤à¤¤à¤¿ शाà¤à¤¤à¤¿ ðð» — Rahul PAWAR (@rahuldpawar) September 3, 2018 For an athlete who chose to train, work hard and eventually made the country proud at the expense of spending time with his family, Tajinderpal deserves all the credit and praise one can spare for sportspersons. And, while we all basked in his glory at the Games, in this darkest hour of his life, India must stand by Tajinderpal's side, for that is the least we can do to repay the efforts of our brave athletes. And, while nothing that compensate the loss of life, we are sure that Tajinderpal's father - wherever he is now - will be proud of the fact that his son's biggest achievement in life - the Asian Games gold - was for him.
  12. Every kid wants to live up to the expectations of their parents, fulfil their dreams and make them proud. Similarly, all parents want to see their children excel and reach greater heights in life. And when the kids outshine their parents, their happiness and joy is unparalleled. No one can understand this emotion better than AR Umamaheswara Sarma, a father whose pride knows no bounds, ever since he greeted his daughter with a salute. Umamaheswara has been serving in the police for over three decades now and is currently working as the Deputy Commissioner of Police in Malkajgiri area in Telangana. © Facebook Yesterday, during the public meeting of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) at Kongara Kalan, he met his daughter Sindhu Sarma for the first time as a cop while on duty. Sindhu is the Superintendent of Police in Telangana and is Umamaheswara's senior officer. © Twitter "This is the first time we have come together while doing our duties. I am fortunate to work with her," said the proud father. He further added, "She is my senior officer. When I see her, I salute her. We do our respective duties and don't discuss this, but at home, we are just like any father and daughter." Sarma, who is retiring next year, started his career as a sub-inspector, while his daughter Sindhu is an IPS officer from the 2014 batch.
  13. If there's anyone with the skills of saving one's face — it's David Beckham. Blame his terrific skincare routine and grooming ritual here and we'd declare you as a smart man. After all, a habit of taking care of yourself, ensuring you do it daily, and doing the right things at the right time (also, before it's too late) — is the way of ensuring you look 23 at 43. So, going by that theory, let's just say: Beckham comes with capital-G moves to cop. But that's like talking of senior-Beckham. David has three sons from his marriage with Victoria Beckham too, that are drops of genetically-blessed entities themselves. But before age starts to hit them and just in case, they've been skipping a step or two, here's a list of 5 grooming habits they must learn from their age-defying father right away. © WWD 1. Face masks are as golden as golden gets As stated by the ex-footballer himself, David indulges in face masks quite frequently. But well — he does it in private, and not to garner likes on Instagram. But whether you use these masks to remove the excess oil, dirt and grime off your face or to simply hydrate your skin using a sheet mask; the point remains that face masks ensure your skin goes a long way. Time we relent. Plus, don't face masks feel great anyway? Even Beckham thinks so. © Innisfree 2. Under-eye care isn't for losers Correct us if we're wrong: baggy/puffy under-eyes, dark circles make any man look haggled, fatigued and well, just not very attractive. Plus, having zero under-eye stress is rule #1 of looking younger than usual, right? Using Vitamin E oil, hydrating serums will help prevent wrinkles and rid you of the appearance of any kind of under-eye tiredness. Result? You're going to end up looking a lot younger. © Clinique 3. Your hands need a hand job — with a cream In case you're not aware, your hands lack the presence of sebaceous glands, meaning: they're a hell lot prone to drying. Also, meaning: they're a lot more susceptible to cracking up and peeling off, come whatever weather their way. To avoid all that, the trick lies in moisturizing daily, and doing that with a season-less approach (hand creams aren't just for winters). Use a cream that gets absorbed faster and doesn't make your hands feel greasy. © Clarins Men 4. Thickening shampoos actually help God forbid, if you're not wanting to look like David Beckham in life, you can happily succumb to hair-thinning. But the truth is, no one (except you) would appreciate that sight. Take our suggestion, and begin with using hair-thickening shampoos occasionally, starting from your 20s. And, keep them closer through your 30s and 40s. Hair-thickening shampoos contain special polymers, that'll give your shaft a collective bounce. Just look at David Beckham's mane! © Molton Brown 5. Know about hair serums? It's a world-renowned fact that hair serums prevent your strands from damage, reduces frizz, hydrates them, make them easier to style and well, give them a much longer life. Plus, they're useful in controlling the oil produce on your scalp, so that there's no excess oil trickling down your forehead, neck and back, causing troubles like breakouts and boils in the heat. But most importantly, hair serums ensure that your mop looks as glorious as Beckham's. Rub some into your mop right after a hair-bath or a minute (or two) before you're starting to style them.
  14. No dream is too big to fulfill, if you set your heart to it, just like no hurdle or obstacle is strong enough to break your determination and stop you from achieving your goal. Asharam Choudhary's inspiring story is possibly the greatest example of this statement. 20-year-old Asharam is a resident of Vijayganj Mandi in Madhya Pradesh. His father, Ranjit Choudhary is a ragpicker who earns less than Rs. 50 a day by collecting discarded plastic bottles and iron pieces near the railway crossings. © Twitter Wondering why the name Asharam is so important right now? Because he has done something that no one in his family could ever imagine, even in their wildest dreams. With his hard work and sheer dedication, Asharam has cleared the AIIMS entrance exam for MBBS and is now headed towards his dream of becoming a doctor. According to a report in The Hindu, Asharam secured 707th all-India rank and 141st rank in the OBC category. In fact, he also cleared the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test and got 2763 all-India rank and 803rd rank in OBC category. © Twitter ANI Asharam said that an incident with a 'jhola chaap' doctor helped him realize his dream. He said, “I decided to become a doctor by chance. When I was studying in Class V, my father took me to a 'jhola chaap' doctor. I saw him prescribing a few medicines and earning Rs. 50 in few minutes. The incident left a deep impression on me. I compared his work with the labour of my father, who collected discarded plastic bottles, iron pieces, especially near the railway crossings, and earned less than Rs. 50 in an entire day.” © Twitter ANI Asharam's family is financially weak and he credits his parents and Navodaya Vidyalaya for this achievement. He says, “There are some gaps in the roof from where sun rays and rain water easily seeps into our house. The adversities have never deterred me from continuing my studies. This was my first attempt (in AIIMS entrance test) and my teachers at Navodaya Vidyalaya, especially Amit sir (his Biology teacher), guided me in clearing the exam.” He also credited Dakshana Foundation in Pune, who extended their full support to him. The foundation is a coaching centre which trains students from financially weak families from rural India for engineering and medical entrance tests. Although, Asharam has inched closer to his dream of becoming a doctor, his father is worried about their financial condition. He said, “He has got admission in AIIMS but we don't have money to support him. Let's see what we can do. As of now, a doctor and the Collector have helped us.” Asharam got selected at the Jodhpur AIIMS, where he'll be pursuing MBBS. He wants to become a doctor to help the people in his village.
