  2. Pavithra Vijay has been in the nutrition and fitness industry for over five years now. Alongside her husband Vijay who is the co-founder of Fast&Up, a brand that caters to the nutritional needs of athletes, Pavithra was open to new ventures and was a complete stranger to âactive sportsâ as she would put it. However, it was her conversation with Indian Olympian swimmer Nisha Millet that made her completely dive into the sporting scenario of India and ever since, she has grown as a professional and is currently managing over 150 athletes across all sports including cricket, badminton, running, tennis, the list goes on. © Nisha Millet âWhat attracted me most in any line of work was interacting with people. The idea of athletes using, believing in our products and agreeing to vouch for us made us start the program,â she says. âThe process included framing the contracts, working closely with athletes to get their deliverables met, constantly look out for good and successful athletes at multiple sports made this team grow. I had the able support of my small but very hard working team, the marketing team who constantly shared their innovative ideas to use our athletes to promote and build the brand and last but not the least the athletes themselves.â Managing athletes, especially Indian cricketers, is a task cut out for a very specific set of people. They require a lot of patience and the ability to act on the go. Hello again Mohali! See you later tonight! pic.twitter.com/w0FlfSKgOe â Mayank Agarwal (@mayankcricket) April 16, 2019âNutrition has always been a subject which has not been given enough priority. So initially it was a challenge to reach out and connect with the athletes. There are so many myths around and so little guidance,â Pavithra says. âI have had to spend a lot of time educating the athletes about the importance of nutrition and how it can play an important role in their performances.â âThe personal interaction with the athletes makes it easy to get the deliverables met. We do meet and greet sessions, invite them for product launches, guest speakers at partnered events, Insta live sessions. Since we are in constant touch with them, we work around their schedules so that they focus on their careers and family.â Amongst the plethora of clients Pavithra manages are two bright faces of the ongoing era of Indian dominance in international cricket, Test expert Mayank Agarwal and the 16-year-old hurricane of a batswoman, Shafali Verma. © Pavithra Vijay âBoth are wonderful human beings and fairly easy to interact with. Obviously getting their time out for a video shoot or an interview gets challenging sometimes but we have been fortunate to get the deliverables as planned,â she says while talking about the two clients. âI like to wish my athletes all the best before their big day. Mayank loves running and thatâs the topic I discuss most with him. Looking forward to seeing him run a 10K race soon. Shafali is the quieter ones. She mostly replies to the point. My relationship with Shafali is a growing one. We have met once post signing but always on chats. I remember having a long chat over lunch about her life, her passion for the game, her huge respect for her father who constantly believed in her and let her do what she knew best, play cricket! I am looking forward to meeting her post the T20 World Cup. I interact with her dad more than her as she is busy. He is a very nice man and we discuss her achievements,â she adds. Congrats Shafali Verma on attaining the no. 1 rank in T20 batsman list.#shafaliverma #T20WorldCup pic.twitter.com/Z06nI1K0vx â Awarapan ð®ð³ (@KingSlayer_05) March 4, 2020Sports management and looking after big athletes has been more of a male dominated domain on a global scale. From legendary football players such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to basketball legends like LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard, all of them are managed by men. Even though gender has nothing to do with the success or failure of a manager, it is men who are more commonly found to be in a spot where Pavithra is. âI never felt any field is dominated by a specific gender. It's what you do, how you do differently that makes you unique from others and shine. Even in my stint in the corporate field working for MNCs and Indian companies, where I lead a team of men, mostly older than me, gender or age didn't make any difference. It was a job that needed to be executed with dedication and hard work, period. My ex-bosses always told me I am a chartered accountant with a difference,â she says. âEvery individual is different and it is very important to handle every individual differently, respect their time, space and their thoughts. I know each one personally and thanks to social media, it is easy to keep in touch with them," she adds. © Pavithra Vijay âWhen our athletes are introduced to the world, we always welcome them to the Fast&Up family. I have a wonderful team which comprises of ex-cricketers, avid runners who understand the sport and the importance of nutrition in sports which makes our job easy. To be a well rounded human and pass on learnings to the future generation , it is important to constantly learn and adapt, have an open mind and be inclusive,â Pavithra signs off.

  3. The fans of the Indian cricket team, especially those of the city of Guwahati were heartbroken when the match between their side and the visiting Sri Lankan side was cancelled due to damp patches on the pitch. This match would have been really special for two major reasons. One, Indian pacer and the apparent apple of everybody's eyes, Jasprit Bumrah was to return to the field after months of being ruled out with a stress fracture in his lower back. And two, it would have been for the first time in three years that an international match would have taken place here. © AP Even though not a single ball was bowled on Sunday, it wasn't a completely dull day at the Barsapara stadium. Instead, the cameras captured a great moment of unity when the entire stadium sang 'Vande Mataram' in unison. Amidst their phone lights flashing all around the field and fans standing in their blue jerseys with the Indian tricolour in their hands, the Indian skipper Virat Kohli walked towards the middle of the pitch with wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant and opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan by his side. The social media handle of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) captured the moment brilliantly and shared the video on Twitter with a caption: “Guwahati, you beauty.” Guwahati, you beauty ð#INDvSL pic.twitter.com/QuZAq7i1E3 — BCCI (@BCCI) January 5, 2020 The spirit of the Guwahati crowd was such that even though they did not get to watch their Men in Blue play the game they love with all their heart, the vibe was similar to the 2011 World Cup final when MS Dhoni smashed that six to end a 28-year-old draught and brought home the trophy at Mumbai's Wankhede stadium. It didn't matter which region of the country you belonged to, or what language you spoke, or what religion you were from, at that moment, in that stadium, you were cheering as an Indian, you were cheering for your team. Here's how the people reacted to this incredible moment on social media: Separated by language,religion....united by indiaâ£ï¸âºï¸....#vandematram — Sri_AK_60 'ᴺᴷᴾ' (@Srinath44574214) January 5, 2020 2011 world cup final wali felling aa rahi h ð — Being Ajay (@BeingAjay18) January 5, 2020 pic.twitter.com/Zcc2RKfTyw — Rishabh Srivastava (@AskRishabh) January 5, 2020 What a beautiful Stadium. #TeamIndia should play matches here more often but by keeping the weather conditions in check. #INDvSL — Aditya Saha (@adityakumar480) January 5, 2020 That's the game sprint.

  4. During the 2018 Under-19 World Cup, under the tutelage of coach Rahul Dravid, a youngster stood out in the tournament and grabbed everyone's attention on the back of his brilliant batting skills. Slamming a match-winning hundred and three fifties, Shubman Gill amassed 221 runs to be rightly adjudged the 'Player of the Tournament'. Following his masterclass in India's successful campaign in the U-19 World Cup, young Gill revealed how he looked up to Virat Kohli and learnt the tools of the trade after watching his batting videos for countless hours. Since then, pundits and fans have been busy drooling over the similarities between the two batsmen. Just like Kohli, Gill is a right-handed batsman who boasts of almost every single shot that has been found in the Indian captain's armoury over the years. Both the cricketers love batting at the No. 3 position. And, just like Kohli, Gill has been shattering one record after another in domestic cricket. © BCCL There is so much potential on display by young Gill that he is now been looked upon as a future star who could be a key ingredient to India's success in international cricket in the years to come. But, Gill, in his bid to replicate the success of Kohli, appears to be making the same mistake his idol made early in his career: losing his patience and eventually his cool. For a youngster who has enjoyed the limelight for his clinical batting display in recent times, Gill produced a rare moment of madness during Punjab's ongoing Ranji Trophy clash against Delhi at the IS Bindra stadium in Chandigarh. Generally known for his calm and composed demeanour, Gill didn't just lose his cool but also reportedly ended up abusing the on-field umpire on 3rd January. Huge controversy here in Mohali. Shubman Gill was given caught behind but he is not moving anywhere. And the decision has been overturned — Pratyush Raj (@pratyush_RajTOI) January 3, 2020 According to a TOI journalist, who is believed to be have witnessed the turn of events at the stadium, narrated the whole incident in a series of tweets. The scribe claimed that Gill was ruled out by on-field umpire Mohammed Rafi (who was making his umpiring debut), but rather than walking off the field, the youngster stood his ground and looked unimpressed with the decision. The umpire was Mohammed Rafi not Paschim Pathak. Sorry for the inconvenience. https://t.co/zKz4X0XTSs — Pratyush Raj (@pratyush_RajTOI) January 3, 2020 In his tweets, the journalist also quoted Delhi captain Nitish Rana as saying: "Gill walked down to umpire Rafi and abused him". Following which, the umpire, after consultation with other on-field umpire Paschim Pathak, overturned his decision to further extend Gill's stay at the crease. Delhi camp is fuming. They are not bowling. — Pratyush Raj (@pratyush_RajTOI) January 3, 2020 Delhi team is walking off the ground. — Pratyush Raj (@pratyush_RajTOI) January 3, 2020 Irked by Gill's unwarranted intervention to overturn umpire's decision, Delhi skipper Rana and his teammates decided to walk off the field in protest of the turn of events. The play was halted for a while before the match referee's intervention saw the cricketers returning to the field. The match has been re-started after the intervention of match referee. — Pratyush Raj (@pratyush_RajTOI) January 3, 2020 Punjab opener Gill, once again, returned to the crease but couldn't make the most of the opportunity before falling prey to Simarjeet Singh who got him caught behind the stumps by wicket-keeper Anuj Rawat for a mere 23 runs. A quickfire knock of 65 runs by Gurkeerat Singh saw Punjab posting 127/3 at lunch, but Gill's theatrics on the field undeniably earned him flak on social media. The young gun is one of the most promising talents in the country and, still, has a long way to go when it comes to carrying the baton for India in national colours in international cricket. And, for someone who idolises Kohli, Gill should take a leaf out of the Indian captain's playbook and work on his temperament to avoid such incidents. All his potential and talent wouldn't mean anything if Gill is not able to respect the game and show some maturity - something Kohli has mastered in the latter part of his career.

  5. For a football club whose last major trophy dates back to 2008, Tottenham Hotspur undeniably came a long way to becoming a convincing unit under Mauricio Pochettino. With the Argentine at the helm of affairs, the Spurs played some exciting football and improved their game significantly while nurturing young talents. The efforts of Pochettino and his team saw them giving their Premier League rivals some tough competition and eventually propelled them to the coveted UEFA Champions League final, their first, last season. Even if their loss to Liverpool in the Madrid final and a subsequent dismal run in the Premier League, earlier this season, brought an end to Pochettino's five-year-and-a-half reign, the Spurs continue to show signs of greatness. Apart from their performances on the pitch, the Spurs' rise can also be measured from the intelligence of their ball boys. The second-leg of the last season's Champions League semifinal saw 14-year-old Oakley Cannonier rolling the spare ball towards Trent Alexander-Arnold whose swift corner kick allowed DivockOrigi to score their fourth and decisive goal to send Barcelona packing. And, more recently, another Spurs ball boy's intelligence and swift action once again aided the London-based club in the Champions League group stage clash against Olympiacos. While Harry Kane and Lucas Moura might have been influential on the field during in their 4-2 win, the real hero for Spurs wasn't even on it. Trailing 2-0 after 20 minutes, Spurs pegged one goal back just before half-time through Dele Alli and found their equaliser in the second half courtesy a smart, quick-thinking assist from ball boy Callum Hynes. As the host's team charged forward, Serge Aurier was able to take a quick throw-in courtesy of Hynes, with Moura receiving the ball, racing into the box and setting up Harry Kane for a routine finish. The Spurs scored two more goals, scripting a sensational comeback, to eventually beat Olympiacos 4-2 and secure a Round of 16 berth. But, it's needless to say, the real hero for Spurs was the 15-year-old ball boy who didn't just impress the fans, but also drew plaudits from new manager Jose Mourinho. Jose Mourinho at Tottenham is a new man pic.twitter.com/rwR8dMAPyo â ESPN FC (@ESPNFC) November 26, 2019 While the whole team was celebrating Kane's goal on the pitch, Mourinho made sure to offer his thanks to the instigator, Hynes, on the touchline and followed it up with a tribute in the post-match press conference. "I love intelligent ball boys like I was. I was a brilliant ball boy as a kid. This kid today was brilliant. He reads the game, understands the game and made an important assist," the Spurs boss told BT Sport. Jose Mourinho wanted to invite the @SpursOfficial ball boy into the dressing room to celebrate after his helping hand in the build up to the second goal against Olympiakosï¸ pic.twitter.com/gk9SS2Q5xX â Hayters TV (@HaytersTV) November 27, 2019Speaking at his post-match interview, Mourinho also revealed that he intended to extend an invite to the ball boy to join the Spurs team in the dressing room to celebrate, but the youngster had already disappeared. For young Hynes, who is now into his sixth season as a ball boy, the big moment, especially drawing praise from the 'Special One', still seems "surreal". âI was just doing my job and I still canât quite believe what happened. I didnât even see the goal! I was busy getting the ball that had come off and then I heard the cheer. I turned around and Harry was celebrating," the young ball boy told Tottenham's website. âI looked at the replay on the screen and watched exactly what happened. You can see from my smile it was just unbelievable. Jose didnât have to do that. It was really nice of him to come over to me. Itâs made my day, my life, really! I love Spurs and it was an amazing moment Iâll never forget. The whole way home I was using a torch in the car to go over my maths revision!â he added. If Hynes was over the moon, his mother Keeley, too, was blown away by Mourinho's sweet gesture for her son. âWe were in the stadium and saw Jose go over to Callum. We just thought it was going to be a high five and didnât expect any more than that but then both of our phones started pinging!," she said. âThe smile on Callumâs face! It was such a lovely thing that Jose did to say thanks like that. Callum always says that by sitting on the touchline watching these players he learns so much and takes it all away with him for his own football. Iâm so proud of him,â she added. In the modern era of the sport, football teams are often seen stressing on the need for that additional push to get over the line in tough situations. We have seen the scores of fans often being labelled as the twelfth man for their respective teams, but as the sport becomes more competitive, it seems that having just a loyal fanbase is not enough. The football clubs also need these intelligent and alert ball boys to tilt the contest in their favour. View the full article
  6. We have plenty of reasons to celebrate International Men's Day. Apart from talking about gender equality, both manhood and boyhood need to be talked about in equal spaces too. For the uninitiated, International Men's Day is celebrated on November 19, every year and the focus is mostly on health, highlighting discrimination against men and promoting gender equality. But in today's day and age, Men's Day is a lot more about picking and choosing the right role models who become timely inspirational stories for other men to follow suit. © The Independent Agreed, both men and women don't need a dedicated day to glorify their kind. We don't need to take a day out of our schedules to go on writing about why there is a day dedicated to a particular gender nor do we need to get out on the streets and tell the world about it. It's just a keen reminder of how times have changed, where we, as a society, have accepted, normalised and internalised a lot of changing aspects that gender roles have brought in to our lives. A lot of men, fortunately, have stood the test of time to talk about normalising stereotypes in society and have been there to support and inspire numerous others through their chosen fields and it's time to talk about them today. Here are 6 men from different fields and walks of life who continue to break stereotypes in society, so that young people have a chance to look up to someone as inspirational as them: 1. Health & Fitness: Milind Soman View this post on Instagram 15k today takes this weeks distance to 60k! ð need to have an average of 60-70km per week to maintain the level of fitness that I am accustomed to ð cant run every day as I would like, but have got to make the time. . . . The goal is not a marathon, or Ironman. Out of 24hrs×7days which is 168hrs I need to find 8hrs for myself. That's the goal. . . . #keepmoving #keeplearning #Live2Inspire #fitnessaddict #nevergiveup #findtime #maketime #fitterin2019 #neverstop #runner #runnersofinstagram #runningman ð· @ankita_earthy the cutie ⤠A post shared by Milind Usha Soman (@milindrunning) on Nov 15, 2019 at 11:55pm PST One of the greatest names in the fitness and health industry in India, the 53-year-old has broken every age and fitness related stereotype there is. He's in great shape and has been giving major fitness goals to people since a while now. The man ran a 72 Km marathon in Delhi last year to mark 72 years of Independence for the country and that's not all. He's been organising marathons since years now and urges the young population of India to always stay fit and healthy. The man also married someone a lot younger than him and re-defined the age-gap parameter between a couple. For him, age is just a number, in every sense of the way and we always look forward to his posts and videos on fitness and health. © Asmen India © Instagram 2. Entertainment/Bollywood: Aamir Khan © MensXP Only a few celebrities have managed to stand out with their ubiquitous panache and acting prowess over the years, while delivering some excellent quality content on-screen. One of the fewer actors who comes to mind when I put these words together, is Aamir Khan and at 54, he's made a huge mark on the entire cinematic experience in India. Aamir takes story-telling as an art that can also change someone's life along with changing the trajectory of cinema in India. Through his stories on real-time issues that plague society, he connects with a larger audience who appreciate his work and acknowledge the sentiments behind it. © UTV Motion Pictures Apart from creating a stern chance for philanthropic work on grave social issues in society, through his films, Aamir believes in his art so much that he never attends a single award function. His vision and ideologies go hand in hand with his dedication towards cinema and we're glad we have someone amidst us who understands the importance of some great cinematic experience. His films have talked about subjects that resonate with breaking societal stereotypes very gravely. Films like PK, 3 Idiots, Taare Zameen Par and even Dhobi Ghat, talk about the damaging effects of flawed notions in society, which have left a rather big impact on the newer, evolving generation today. 3. Sports: Mahendra Singh Dhoni © BCCI MS Dhoni has broken all stereotypes of leadership and every young sportsman or woman can aspire to be just like him. While there are other sportsmen in the country who've been quite an inspiration as well, but along with raging adrenaline to play a sport, you have to have a calming effect on yourself and people around you to carry forth a label of good sportsmanship and Dhoni has done just that quite flawlessly. During his captaincy, and even after, Dhoni always motivated his team in a manner that was energising and yet calm. He never exerted any pressure and was the least aggressive of all the leaders who've been a part of the Indian cricket team. © BCCI "Dhoni, as a captain, completely demolished any form of hierarchy in the team and created a platform for players to interact with each other, suggest and chalk out strategies" - said Pavan Choudary, an Indian writer and a TV show host, in an interview with TOI. 4. Fashion: Ujjawal Dubey © Ujjawal Dubey Breaking stereotypes in fashion is a bigger deal than its made to be. It's an integral part of every man's wish list to look and feel the finest and that's where our designers and stylists come in to make a difference in every sense of the word. While there are many inspirational designers out there, the one name that stood out to us was that of Ujjawal Dubey, who has pushed the envelope on developing ethnic menswear through his label, Antar-Agni. His label produces sartorial masterpieces that have redefined Indian fashion on a global scale. The sense of style he creates around ethnic wear clearly resonates with a lot of Indian men who just don't want to go to another wedding honouring the black-tie affair! "Antar - Agni means 'the fire within'. It's all about the human self and the expression of emotions, psyche, behaviour and experience. I chose this name as an ode to the years of complexities and ordeals I went through before I found myself and the drive I had", Ujjawal says in an interview with MensXP. © Antar-Agni 5. Hospitality: Keshav Suri © Twitter Keshav Suri inherited a well-established empire from his late father and Indian F&B stalwart Lalit Suri, but Kitty Su was not a part of it. The youngest executive director of the Lalit Group of Hotels has carved a niche for himself and his creative, futuristic style has earned him great rewards. Kesav Suri is a cultural icon for the LGBTQ community in India. Recently, he filed a petition with the Supreme Court on challenging Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) that criminalises a consensual relationship between consenting adults of the same ***. © BCCI The young Suri has been instrumental in driving a lot of unique initiatives at the Lalit group. He started Kitty Su in 2011 with the intent of delivering a unique experience to the millennials and it worked. Kitty Su has made big strides in the F&B business and it is the only nightclub from India to be featured in DJ Mag for three years consecutively. It has also been awarded as Best Night Club in Delhi by Times Food and Nightlife Awards. 6. Politics: Dr Shashi Tharoor © Amazon Prime Video With his impeccable vocabulary, Tharoor is certainly a people's politician. Recently, he was seen as a stand-up comedian, on the show One Mic Stand, which was well received by the viewers. The 10-minute stand-up act in the last episode made Twitter go absolutely gaga over the Congress MP trying his luck at humour, under the guidance of comic Kunal Kamra. Together, Kamra and Tharoor made hysterical statements and jokes about the present government and certain journalists 'who must not be named', or else they might file a defamation case! But needless to say, Twitter was quite amazed by Tharoor's stand-up act as he did something no politician has done before- "made people laugh intentionally", through his clever jokes and not through his misguided actions! While there are several other men in the country who've truly been an inspiration while breaking stereotypes, we certainly can't name them all. But for International Men's Day this year, let's follow the lead of these 6 men who've motivated an entire nation to think laterally, out of the box! View the full article

  9. Ever since their dismal outing at the ICC World Cup in England & Wales, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has brought in noticeable changes in a bid to prepare better for the future assignments. From changing the coach to bringing in healthy diet, Pakistan cricket team has undergone a major overhaul. More recently, a crackdown on Sarfaraz Ahmed's captaincy saw the PCB opting for split-captaincy. While Sarfaraz remains Pakistan's captain in One-Day Internationals (ODIs), the likes of Azhar Ali and Babar Azam have been handed the responsibilities of leading the national sides in Tests and Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) respectively. © Reuters Following a 3-0 whitewash in the T20I series against Sri Lanka at home, Babar was looking forward to lead Pakistan's charge as the great Australian challenge beckoned. But, while many thought it was premature move which could affect the form of arguably Pakistan's best batsman at the moment, Babar sought inspiration from successful leaders like Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli. Leading Pakistan in the three-match T20I series against Australia, Babar was looking solid with his gritty fifty in the first match before incessant rain ruined the opening contest as a 'No Result'. In the second T20I at Canberra, Babar carried on his fine form and recorded his second consecutive fifty in the series. While his resurgent innings kept the scoreboard ticking, it was Iftikhar Ahmed's blazing 34-ball 62 that powered Pakistan to a competitive total of 150 runs at the loss of six wickets. Though the popular perception over Babar's form, owing to the added responsibility of leading Pakistan, was put to rest by the right-hander with his fifty, the captain of the visiting team witnessed a moment of frustration during their innings. Don't make the captain unhappy... ð³#AUSvPAk pic.twitter.com/VZO9QwbOEK — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) November 5, 2019 In the 12th over, the visitors had already lost three wickets with their run-rate not as flowing as one would have expected. While Babar was looking to stitch a partnership in a bid to stabilise the innings, his partner Asif Ali witnessed a rare lapse of judgement which led to his dismissal. Facing only his fifth delivery of the match, Ali, rather than looking to rotate the strike and let his skipper take charge, went for an unnecessary slog-sweep which went straight into the hands of Pat Cummins for a simple catch at long on. As the hosts rejoiced in a huddle, Babar was seen venting out his frustration with a hand gesture at his partner's poor shot selection. As soon as the video of Babar's hand gesture, drawn out of frustration, surfaced on social media, cricket fans across the globe took the opportunity to sympathise with the new Pakistan captain. Poor Babar. His team plays with no heart — BZQ (@bzq122) November 5, 2019 Any one will get frustrated...

  10. The world of cricket has witnessed numerous stars over the years. But, there remain a few who, despite calling time on their respective careers, continue to live in the hearts of cricket fans across the globe. While Sachin Tendulkar reigns supreme as the 'god of cricket', Brian Lara continues to enjoy the reputation as one of the batting greats. While both the legends have moved on to life away from cricket, the fans, who once cherished their exploits on the field, often re-live the golden memories through archived footages. But, not for long. © Twitter Cricket fans will now have an opportunity to watch Tendulkar and Lara amongst other greats in action as they are set to mark a return to the field in the much-anticipated Road Safety World Series. The T20 tournament, which is slated to begin from 2nd February next year in Mumbai and Pune to promote road safety, will feature 110 retired cricketers which also includes the likes of Zaheer Khan, Brett Lee and Tillakaratne Dilshan. With the Professional Management Group and the Road Safety Cell of the Maharashtra government as the organisers, the league will feature six teams — India Legends, Australia Legends, South Africa Legends, Sri Lanka Legends and West Indies Legends. © Twitter On one hand, where Tendulkar will be seen leading the Indian side, Lara will be calling the shots as captain of the West Indies brigade. And, the likes of Dilshan, Lee and Jonty Rhodes will be seen leading the Sri Lanka, Australian and the South African teams respectively. The tournament will witness 10 league games where each team will play each other before the all-important final. The proceeds of the tournament, which will be based on the franchise model, would be utilised by the Road Safety Cell to promote the cause in addition to highlighting how India ranks the highest in the world in terms of deaths caused on roads. "When the legends participate in the league, they will carry the messages of road safety," former India captain, Sunil Gavaskar, who is also the commissioner of the league, said. The unique tournament will mark the return of Tendulkar on the playing field for the third time since his retirement in 2013. He was part of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) side that locked horns against the Rest of the World XI at Lord's in 2014. A year later, the 'Master Blaster' also featured in three exhibition T20s in the United States.
  11. One of the biggest accolades in the world, The Nobel Prize is given to those who excel in the field of academics, from around the world. It's held annually and the work that's recognised, stands out when someone receives this incredible honour. The awards are given to people for academic excellence in the fields of chemistry, physics, literature, physiology, medicine and promoting and building peace. The award was first designed around the will of the first Swedish chemist, engineer and industrialist Alfred Nobel, when the first 5 Nobel prizes were awarded in 1885. The awards are given by the Swedish and Norwegian institutions in recognition of academic, cultural, or scientific advances. © nobelprize.org That's all you really need to know about the origin of the Nobel prize and some other facts related to it. What we really want to tell you is that Indians haven't been far off in receiving such a prestigious honour. Indians, both from India and around the globe, have received the Nobel Prize in various fields, with one winning it quite recently actually, in the field of economics. We thought we should list down these 9 Indian geniuses, even though most of them don't reside here, but still make the country proud of the kind of talent we possess, globally: (1) Rabindranath Tagore The first Indian who won a Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. © nobelprize.org Celebrated artist and poet. Tagore won the Nobel prize for “his profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse”. Also famously known as Gurudev, Tagore was one of the greatest literary figures India has ever had. He even composed the National Anthem of India and Bangladesh. Even today, his stories, poetry and his art are cherished amongst the cultural community of India. (2) C.V. Raman The Indian who won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1930. © Finacial Express Sir Chandrashekhara Venkata Raman, won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1930 “for his work on the scattering of light and for the discovery of the effect named after him”. He is best known for discovering the 'Raman Effect', which was a path-breaking milestone in the field of physics. (3) Mother Teresa Indian citizen who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. © BCCL Even though she wasn't born here, Mother Teresa moved to India at the age of 19 and made it her home. She spent the rest of her life here as a Roman Catholic missionary, helping the poorest of the poor. Her humanitarian work led her to establish the congregation of the Missionaries For Charity, which, in turn, recognised her with a Nobel Peace Prize. (4) Amartya Sen Indian citizen who won the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 1998. © nobelprize.org Dr Amartya Sen was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences “for his contributions to welfare economics”. Having studied economics, Dr Sen went on to teach it in many reputed institutions in the U.S. and the United Kingdom. His research papers on welfare economics and social justice are studied even today and surely did get him a lot of awards, including the Nobel, of course. (5) Kailash Satyarthi Indian citizen who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014. © nobelprize.org Kailash Satyarthi from Madhya Pradesh was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 for his “struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education”. The man has spent his life battling corporate for using child labour and has done it away from the spotlight all this while. He also put the child's right to education on the map, in India, through his work with UNESCO. Towards the end, he earned a Nobel Peace Prize and shared the same with Malala Yousafzai of Pakistan. (6) Har Gobind Khorana Indian citizen who won a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1968. © BCCL Har Gobind Khorana an Indian-born American biochemist was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1968 along with Marshall W. Nirenberg and Robert W. Holley “for their interpretation of the genetic code and its function in protein synthesis”. (7) Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar Indian citizen who won a Nobel Prize in Physics in 1983. © nobelprize.org Sir Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar was born in India but he eventually moved to the United States and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics "for his theoretical studies of the physical processes of importance to the structure and evolution of the stars”. He happened to be the nephew of another Nobel Laureate C.V. Raman, so we guess it quite literally ran in the family! His discoveries led to the establishment of the physical processes involved in the evolution of stars. (8) Venkatraman Ramakrishnan Indian who won a Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2009. © nobelprize.org Indian-born American-British biologist, Venkatraman Ramakrishnan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry “for studies of the structure and function of the ribosome”, along with Thomas A. Steitz and Ada E. Yonath. (9) Abhijeet Banerjee He won the Nobel Prize this year, 2019 in Economics. © BCCL The India-origin American based economist did us proud this year by winning a Nobel Prize in economics for fighting poverty. Abhijit won the Prize for his “experimental approach to alleviating poverty,” and the world can't help but take note of this 58-year-old development economist, who has been a trailblazer when it comes to meeting poverty head-on, and helping the needy rise above it. So, there you go. In case you set foot into the outside world, you will have something to show off and take pride in, definitely. From literature to medicine, to economics and even peace, India has shown the world that we are here to fight the good fight, by slowly progressing toward a suitably developed global impact.

  13. The desire to build something of their own and focus their grey cells honed by academic excellence in the field of technology, made two friends set out on a very innovative journey, which could change how the world views Indian technology. Akshay Singhal has been working in the field of Nanotechnology for the last 7 years and hold great knowledge of Nanotechnology and Material Science. Along with co-founder Kartik Hajela, the duo set out to build Log 9 Materials from a lab set up in Akshay's backyard. © Mensxp Log 9 Materials is one of our country's leading Nanotechnology companies that specializes in Graphene. So, while Akshay looks after overall research and operations of Log 9 Materials. Kartik takes care of the commercial and market introduction aspect of the products that are launched by the company. However, the duo swears by Graphene and the immense potential it holds. What Is Graphene? © Mensxp Graphene is the most advanced form of Carbon that exists in this world, which was discovered in 2004. Related to graphite at the core, but Graphene is different in properties. It is more conducting than copper and stronger than steel! It has such diverse properties that can be put to use in different areas across the board. What Does Log 9 Material Do? The first product that they launched when they were in college, was a cigarette filter called PPuF. Next, they began to explore the oil filtration domain, and the findings so far have been very promising. They came up with the Log9 Pad which is laced with graphene, which can bring about a positive change during oil spills by absorbing the oil spilt on the water surface. © Mensxp However, their latest product in the pipeline is the Metal-Air Battery. Kartik says, “The battery is still a working prototype and we are working on it. However, the essence of the technology comes in E.V.s.” Yet, the challenges related to belief have been real, both from the side of investors as well as consumers. Because both investors and consumers have a hard time placing their faith, that something of such potential can be developed and manufactured in India. Life at Log9 © Mensxp Log 9 Materials is a team of 34 people from engineering backgrounds, and they have scientists as well as marketing wizards. The company seeks people from the said background because regardless of what they do, they need to have technical competency. The average of the team is around 26 and most of them come from materials, chemical or nanotechnological background. These committed and ambitious people have come on board to innovate and build something that would impact the world. © Mensxp Akshay and Kartik want aspiring entrepreneurs to take that leap of faith, if they have faith in their own ideas and know that it will work. As for Akshay he says, “if you really want to do something, do it today rather than tomorrow. Also, hold your ground. Don't buy into or accept whatever is offered, but hold your ground and things will fall into place.”
  14. As the Indian cricket team continues their dominant run overseas this year, there has been no shortage of excitement or entertainment for the fans back home. From brilliant batting performances, majestic bowling displays to electric fielding efforts, the Indian cricket team has produced memorable moments for their fans to cheer for. But, if the cricketing action has left everyone wanting for more, the funny incidents on the field seems to have further enticed the fans. And, in the recent games, no other cricketer has struck a chord with the Indian fans than the camaraderie between MS Dhoni and Yuzvendra Chahal. © BCCL While Dhoni has been a livewire behind the stumps, Chahal appears to be thriving in a new role where he is seen hosting his own chat show 'Chahal TV'. The duo was once again in the mix as Dhoni was caught on the stump-mic giving his piece of mind to Chahal on the field. During the fifth ODI against New Zealand, Chahal was busy making field placements when Dhoni lost his cool. Watching the bowler making one too many changes in the field, Dhoni was heard saying: "Phekne de isko. Muralitharan se jyada fielding mein usko (Chahal) farak padta hai". The rough translation would be: "Let him bowl! He is more bothered than (Muttiah) Muralitharan when it comes to field placements". MSD to kuldeep yadav Muralidharan se jyada fark to fielding mi tujhe padta hain #MSDhoni #KuldeepYadav #NZvIND #MSDian pic.twitter.com/xUzukHAdmx — adarsh kumar (@adarshk06684881) February 4, 2019 While Chahal quickly got back to bowling, Dhoni's hilarious taunt left Kuldeep Yadav (who came on as a substitute fielder) in splits. Later, the Indian team finished off the game with a 35-run win and recorded an emphatic 4-1 win in the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series.
  15. Last month, the Pakistan cricket team and captain Sarfraz Ahmed found themselves in a racism row that was condemned by cricket bigwigs across the globe. During the 2nd ODI on 22nd January, the Pakistani skipper was caught on the stump mic sledging South Africa's Andile Phehlukwayo with racist taunts which eventually earned him a four-match suspension for breaching ICC's code of conduct. Since then, a lot of emphasis has been laid on the demeanour of cricketers on the field. Many former greats have joined the great debate on the immediate need to keep a check on cricketers' on-field behaviour. But, as the Pakistan cricket team tried to put the controversy behind, another incident involving one of their star players has come to the fore. Pakistan's dashing opener Fakhar Zaman was caught swearing on the stump mic during the fifth ODI against South Africa in Newlands. The incident occurred on the final delivery of the 12th over of Pakistan's innings when Zaman was facing Kagiso Rabada. Tackling a short of a length delivery, the Pakistani opener was deceived by the lack of pace from the South African speedster before getting struck in the ribcage. Watching his partner getting a body blow, Babar Azam walked up to Zaman to check up on him. In his defence, Zaman was caught on the stump-mic saying: "Slow ho gaya. Yaar woh 140 hai, behen***d slow aa raha hai. (It got slow. He is 140 mate, beh*n***d it is coming slow)”. While Fakhar went on to score a brilliant 70 in the game which was eventually won by the hosts by seven wickets, his unparliamentary language caught the attention of cricket fans who expected better from the Pakistani batting sensation than what they heard.
  16. Rewinding time is not possible, but 'do-overs' are. Not many get an opportunity to right their wrong. But Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have got one where they can win over the fans with a good performance on the field. After being suspended for their misdemeanour on the popular chat show 'Koffee With Karan', the duo finally had some good news as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) lifted their respective bans with immediate effect. In its press release, BCCI claimed: “Hardik Pandya will be sent to New Zealand to join the team at the earliest and KL Rahul will join the India A squad to play the last 3 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) against England Lions.” It was a much-needed step, as finalising the Indian Team's squad for the World Cup is the need of the hour. Hardik Pandya being a handy batting allrounder, can provide good depth in the batting unit and can prove to be an asset in the pace department for the team. With Virat Kohli out for the last two ODIs and the T20I series, along with Vijay Shankar not being able to cement his position in the team, the bets of Pandya making the cut for India's playing XI are really high. © Reuters And to be honest, Kohli in his past interviews has always talked about strengthening his pace attack by having three pacers. Pandya's presence would bolster the pace attack, easing the pressure on the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami. On the other hand, getting some game-time with the India A squad, KL Rahul can surely use the opportunity to rediscover his lost form and probably return to the national team just in time for the ICC mega event in England. © Reuters Following their nightmarish experience that lasted a bit longer than one would have expected, these two youngsters can now focus on their game in a bid to reclaim the love and trust of the fans.
  17. When it’s about re-engineering running technology, you bet Nike’s cooking up something. The running market is forever growing and Nike leaves no stone unturned to take the lead. The latest offering for runners out of its stable is the Free RN Flyknit. As soon as it came out, we got our hands on a pair and put it to a field test. Should you buy it? Here’s the answer. It’s Weightless! © YouTube It’s literally weightless. Yup, as light as a feather, it feels like you are barely dragging a shoe along. The traditional FlyKnit upper combined with the tristar-sole makes it the lightest shoe we have ever reviewed. It’s so light that it wouldn’t be wrong calling them ‘socks’ instead of a shoe. It’s So Flexible That You Can Roll It Up And Fit It In Your Pocket © YouTube Nope, we didn’t really do it but if you squeeze it and roll it up on purpose, it might just fit into your pocket. Again, the magic here are the impeccably crafted upper and the foam tri-sole. Th upper is literally strength fiber woven together. We tried twisting and turning it every way possible and it bounced back right back its original form, unscathed. The Sole © YouTube The craziest part of this shoe is its sole. It is literally a grid of tri-star chunks of foam perfectly aligned together. The logical behind this new ‘sole construct’ is that it lets the foot move in its natural ‘curve and extend’ movement. The Run © YouTube After we were done playing around, we threw them on and hit the tarmac. We essentially ran on the road. Exactly how a lot of runners in India do it. The impact response of the shoe is pretty smooth. Instead of feeling a hard rebound thump on the foot, the sole absorbs the shock pretty effortlessly. There’s just a mere 4 mm drop on the heel on a sole 90% made of foam, so that explains a lot itself. Buy Or Nah? © YouTube If you love running, this shoe is for you. It fits like a dream and enhances the running stance. It’s light and looks pretty sturdy. But the interesting part here is that it can also double up as an ‘inside-the-gym’ shoe. Just don’t squat or deadlift wearing running shoes!
  18. After enduring a heart-breaking loss in the Champions Trophy final last year, the Indian cricket team patiently waited for an opportunity to return the favour to arch-rivals Pakistan. And, after almost 15 months, the Men in Blue finally got a chance in the group-stage clash of the 2018 Asia Cup. In what was touted to be the mother of all battles, Rohit Sharma's men didn't just avenge their loss in England but absolutely steamrolled Pakistan in a convincing eight-wicket win in Dubai. Labelled as one of the tournament's favourites, Pakistan looked like a shadow of the side that trounced India in England. None of the so-called batting maestros of Pakistan - including the dashing opener Fakhar Zaman - came to the party, as their side was quickly bowled out for a paltry total of 162 runs. The total was never going to be a problem for a strong batting side like India and, as expected, the sub-continent giants notched up the target with eight wickets and 21 overs to spare. © Twitter Given their dismal show early in the tournament, there was no surprise to see the Pakistani side being hammered by their fans on social media. Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur went on to blame his team's batsmen for their heavy loss against India. He rued the poor shot selections of the Pakistani batsmen and asked them to play with more responsibility. Apart from the Pakistan coach, former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar, too, minced no words in his assessment. However, Gavaskar targetted one particular Pakistani batsman and it wasn't for his cheap dismissal, but for the antics on the field. Pakistani opener Zaman was expected to get his side to a solid start by probably repeating his heroics from the Champions Trophy last year. But, contrary to popular perception, the left-hander got out cheaply while playing a rash shot. And, that's not all. If his poor batting left the Pakistani fans disappointed, his exploits on the field irked Gavaskar. © Twitter The Indian commentator was behind the mic in the commentary box when he spotted Zaman wearing the national cap in a rapper's style. Expecting more maturity and discipline from Zaman, Gavaskar said: Somebody, maybe the captain, should tell him that it's the national cap. He should wear it properly. You can do this in PSL (Pakistan Super League) may be, but this is the national team,” he said while commentating. But, Zaman wasn't the only one whose overtly stylish conduct on the field had Gavaskar fuming. Later, in the match, the former Indian batsman was heard criticising Dinesh Karthik for opting for his initials 'DK' and not his name emplaced behind the Indian jersey. “Maybe that's his nickname but since the jersey carries his number, people should identify with the name. Maybe with the name, he can have his initials,” Gavaskar said. Going ahead in the tournament, Pakistan will now lock horns with Afghanistan in the Super Four stage, while the Indian team will take on Bangladesh on 21st September. Also, Team India might have won the group-stage clash against Pakistan, but they'll be wary of their arch-rivals when they clash again during the Super Four stage on 23rd September.
  19. Not too long ago, Indian skipper Virat Kohli was in news for ignoring a 5-year-old girl, who was waiting to meet him when the team was playing a three-day practice match with Essex in Chelmsford. Although, that kid couldn't meet her hero, Kohli made the day of this young fan who will probably cherish this moment forever. Team India scripted history in the third test, with its stupendous victory by 203 runs against England at Trent Bridge. It's the same test that earned Kohli, the Man of the Match award. Instagram Kohli, known for the being a big-hearted man as well, dedicated his team's victory to the Kerala flood victims. His heart-warming gesture won millions of hearts here in the country as well as abroad. "We would like to dedicate this victory to Kerala flood victims, it's a tough time there and this is the minimum we can do on our part. The victory was much needed to keep the series alive, the credit goes to the entire dressing room. We didn't panic, we were outplayed in only one game out of the last 5, and that was Lord's," Kohli said. Reuters As the team was heading back to the bus after the match, Kohli heard a young fan shouting 'Virat, picture please!' outside the stadium in Nottingham. Virat saw his young fan and made his day by obliging his request of a selfie. He not only clicked a selfie but signed an autograph for him as well. #WATCH: Indian cricket team Captain Virat Kohli takes a selfie with a child after he was continuously requesting "Virat, a picture please" outside Trent Bridge cricket stadium in England's Nottingham. #INDvsENG pic.twitter.com/ngKsEVXjwd — ANI (@ANI) August 22, 2018 This isn't the only reason why Kohli's fans love him so much. Last year, Kohli and Anushka won millions of hearts when they invited Kohli's differently-abled Sri Lankan fan to their reception.

  21. Football, being the wonderful sport that it is, remains a contact sport despite a few denying this fact. With all the adrenaline rush that goes on, tempers often soar high and lead to unsavory incidents on the pitch. While this World Cup may not have had too many such incidents, footballers do not always manage to keep their composure. Teammates, coaches, opponents and even referees have gotten involved in such untoward instances, which have etched their name in infamy. Here are some of the most heated fights that have taken place on the football pitch: 1. Arsenal Vs Chelsea (2007) © Twitter Let's be honest, nobody cares about the League Cup anymore. However, in 2007, it was a significant moment as Arsenal came up against Chelsea. The two teams had had quite a few feisty encounters at the time, and their managers Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho constantly had a go at each other. Chelsea scored a late goal and led 2-1, and with the match deep into injury time, the ball broke free in midfield and Jon Obi Mikel and Kolo Toure both tore into each other to get the possession. Before we knew it, Toure and Mikel were at each other's collars. Players from both teams got involved and it soon became a street fight, resulting in both the alarmed managers invading the pitch in an effort to calm things down. The match ended with Mikel, Toure, and Adebayor being sent off. The FA wasn't going to let this slide and handed out massive punishments to both the clubs. All the suspensions were held, with Adebayor and Eboue being suspended for four instead of three games. The clubs were fined GBP 100,000 for failing to control their players and both the managers were reprimanded for their ungraceful remarks about the officials. Overall, it was a total shit-show. 2. Kieron Dyer Vs Lee Bowyer (2005) © Twitter This one is actually quite funny. It was 2005 and Newcastle's glory days were few and far in between. In a regular Premier League match against Aston Villa, Kieron Dyer and Lee Bowyer, who were both midfielders for Newcastle at the time, decided to revisit their school days. The pair got into an argument about passing the ball to each other and in a split second, they were at each other's collars. Punches rained from both sides as they had to be separated by the opposition players and their own teammates. In the fracas, Bowyer had his shirt ripped and didn't look like he was done with Dyer. Consequently, Newcastle lost the match 3-0 and ended the game with 8 men, as Steven Taylor had been sent off before the incident. Both players were handed out massive fines and suspensions by the club and the Premier League. This was as hilarious as it was shocking! 3. Portugal Vs Netherlands (2006) © Twitter It's not really a football match when the entire match is a brawl. In the Round of 16 match between Portugal and Netherlands at the 2006 FIFA World Cup, 16 yellow cards and 4 red cards were handed out, as both sides ended the match with 9 men. Cristiano Ronaldo was kung-fu kicked by Khalid Boulahrouz and was forced off through injury. Luis Figo headbutted an opponent and was elbowed in the face sometime later. Even the benches of both the teams got involved. Portugal, eventually, did emerge as winners at the end of what seemed more like a Royal Rumble. 4. Sergio Ramos Vs Barcelona (2010) © Twitter How could we leave Sergio Ramos and El Classico out of this? In 2010, Barcelona were 5-0 up against Real Madrid. With Messi going on one of his trademark runs deep into injury time, frustration got the better of Ramos as he kicked Messi to knock him down. As Messi's Barcelona teammates aggressively surrounded Ramos, he shoved Carles Puyol, his national team captain in the face, exchanged a few words with Gerard Pique, kicked off a brawl which involved all players and supporting staff and on his way to the dugout, shoved Xavi Hernandez along the way as he nonchalantly entered the tunnel, leaving others to clean up his mess. Yes, he's always been a moron. 5. Manchester United Vs Arsenal (2003) © Twitter Matches between Arsenal and Manchester United have always paved the way for exciting duels. But, in 2003, the football madness - generally offered by these two sides - was shockingly complemented by some absolute shithoussery from the likes of Roy Keane, Patrick Vieira, Paul Scholes and Martin Keown. In one such match at Old Trafford, Ruud van Nistelrooy acted to perfection and got Patrick Vieira sent off. With the tempers flaring, Manchester United were awarded a penalty which van Nistelrooy missed. As the final whistle blew, five Arsenal players surrounded Van Nistelrooy and pushing, shoving and verbal tirades followed. The match ended in a draw and Arsenal went on a 49-game unbeaten run. A year later, Manchester United ended that run and a sour Cesc Fabregas threw a pizza at Sir Alex Ferguson for it. Those were the days!

I never knew it would go viral like this. All I wanted was to make this day super special for my girl because she is super special to me. It could not have been any more perfect! Thank you again for all of your lovely messages and comments it means the world to me.
