  1. We have often heard the wise say that hope is the biggest weapon when it comes to surviving adversities. Till the time one can hope, they possess the means to survive and emerge a victor. If you are wondering what is the point behind that piece of 'gyaan' we just passed on, well we are trying to make a point. And this point involves a very sensitive (if you will) issue - minorities. Be it ethnic, racial or religious, minorities exist in every part of the world. However, their treatment in every part of the world is pretty much identical. © Twitter Right from facing challenges within the education systems, employment opportunities, to dietary and dressing choices, as well as the disputes one faces with regards to identity and a sense of belonging, most minorities around the world have it tough, more often than not. So, bearing those aspects in mind and the fact that even in India we often hear minority groups crying foul for a number of reasons, Pakistan Prime Minister's decision to do something for the Hindu minorities in the state, comes as positive news. © Twitter Imran Khan decided to finally walk the talk and do something concrete for the Hindu minority residing in the country where he enjoys the title of Prime Minister. Now, in a bid to keep his promise to the Hindus in the country, the federal government led by Imran Khan recently announced that they have decided to restore and reopen over 400 Hindu temples across the country and hand them over to the Hindus. © Twitter This not only comes as a gesture of peace and inclusivity but also sparks a ray of hope for all the minority groups around the world. They can now hope for their leaders to follow the lead and spare them a second look, and perhaps take a few tips on how to cater to the needs of the minorities. However, since there are a lot of temples in Pakistan (some of which have been destroyed and lay abandoned since long), the government will be restoring two temples every year. Starting with the temples in Sialkot and Peshawar, which has a functioning Jagannath temple, and a 1000-year-old, abandoned Shivalaya Teja Singh temple, the Pakistan government plans to refurbish all 400 temples on its land. © Twitter According to The Logical Indian report, an All-Pakistan Hindu Rights Movement (APHRM) survey showed since 1990 close to 408 out of the 428 temples have been converted into restaurants, schools, and offices. However, as per a recent survey conducted by the Pakistan government, 11 temples were located in Sindh, four in Punjab, three in Balochistan and two in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, which are operational as of 2019. © Twitter People are also looking at it as a peace gesture for India's consideration, since it's coming from the Pakistan PM directly. We cannot help but wonder what Indian politicians will make of that, given that only months ago in February this year, a few unidentified vandals destroyed a Hindu temple in Pakistan's Sindh province and even set the holy books and idols on fire. Hindus came out in protest after the incident, following which Imran Khan ordered for swift action. We can only hope that this recent development from the Pakistan government comes in complete honesty and goodwill, which could then succeed in setting a great example for the rest of the world.
  2. People have been having some mixed reactions about the infamous 'mankading' incident that took place between the Indian Premier League and Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur last week. Ravi Ashwin's Mankad garnered widespread condemnation from the cricket world. But there's another key side to the debate. MORE: https://t.co/OHfU7KCorD pic.twitter.com/U35w475JYS — Fox Cricket (@FoxCricket) March 26, 2019 When KXIP skipper Ravichandran Ashwin went in to bowl in the 14th over of the game, he turned around half way through his routine, walked up to the wicket of the non-striker's' end and knocked the bails right followed by a cold appeal to dismiss in-form English batsman, Jos Buttler. After taking some time to realise what had happened, the umpire asked for the appeal to go upstairs where after reviewing the footage, the third umpire found out that Buttler was indeed out of crease and Ashwin's appeal was justified. Not taking long thereafter, the big screen displayed a decision in favour of the Indian allrounder and asked an agitated Buttler to leave the field. The incident caused a major riot on social media with people abusing and praising the Indian cricketer for his decision to 'mankad' the Englishman. The situation got a lot more heat especially when two of the more renowned names of the game, Shane Warne and Harsha Bhogle got into a fierce Twitter feud. “No real argument on that and it was pretty instinctive. I didn't even load and he just left the crease. We ended on the right side of the coin, but I definitely think that those are game-changing moments and batsmen need to be wary of it,” Ashwin had told Harsha Bhogle after the game. Reacting on the incident that took him out of the game in a rather unique fashion, Buttler said: "At the time, I was really disappointed with it. I didn't like the style of it," as reported by Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper. "What was more disappointing is that suddenly over the next two games I found myself being really conscious of it and it is quite distracting." The 28-year-old has also appealed to the officials to put up a proper structure of the concept of 'mankading' and put it in the rule books of the game. Buttler told ESPNcricinfo: "Of course, a 'Mankading' has to be in the laws of the game, because a batsman can't just run halfway down the pitch trying to get a head start." "But I do think, the way the law is written, there is a bit of a grey area in that saying 'when a bowler is expected to release the ball'. That is a bit of a wishy-washy statement." Following Buttler's relieve of frustration, his English teammate James Anderson was seen sharing his thoughts about Ashwin and his 'mankading' in a video: EXCLUSIVE: @jimmy9 give us his unique take on @josbuttler's controversial run out last week... More rows should be settled like this. Full story on this week's #Tailenders https://t.co/YOQ4PMSwiu pic.twitter.com/hYCPpdSqJm — Greg James (@gregjames) March 31, 2019 In the video uploaded by the English Radio DJ, and television presenter, Greg James, Anderson can be seen shredding a picture of the player in his Indian kit as a response to Ashwin's move. After watching the video, the Indian cricketer did not hesitate in responding. He said: “Today Jimmy Anderson might feel that whatever I did was wrong. Maybe, tomorrow he might end up doing it [a 'Mankad']. Who knows? It is a question of perception of right and wrong. I don't think in this case it is necessary because it is in the law and I did.” “Everybody who knows me, it is very clear (to them) that I don't do anything that is illegal.”
  3. We humans always do things to move forward. Our technology gets better every passing year. Our daily essentials are better than what they were a few years ago, even our cars and bikes have gotten better, proving that we aim for betterment. In fitness, sadly, we tend to take two steps forward and three steps back. New data and hundreds of scientific studies emerge everyday disproving the old beliefs held by the bodybuilders of the past and present. Still, people do not want to use their brains and simply buy into the hype. © MensXP Spoiler alert: It is not those magic supplements or magic workouts making the bodybuilders huge and jacked. Here are some fitness trends that should have stopped in 2018 (at least, stop them in 2019): 1. Muscle Confusion Workouts Your muscles are smart. If you do the same workout, they won't respond. Switch your exercises every four weeks. Your muscles won't understand how to respond. They will grow then. This theory is as good as saying, study Chemistry for a Math test. Your brain will be confused and you top the class. Plain stupid. Muscles grow primarily through mechanical overload. To grow muscle, you have to become strong. © MensXP If you switch your exercises every 3-4 weeks, you are picking a new movement. You need time to adapt to the movement. After some time you will gain strength. When that time comes, you will do the same stupidity and switch exercises. 2. Stop Buying BCAAs & Fat Burners We all want results quickly. Just a couple of years before 2010, when Internet education was not much, this prominent scam was running rampantly. Someone from Nigeria was dying and of all the people they knew, wanted to give you the money they had in savings. Some even millions of dollars. The catch was that you needed to send them some $10,000 so they could pay the taxes and transfer fees. Funnily enough, many people willingly jumped into the scam. Why? Simply because they were promised to become rich very quickly. The same thing goes with these so-called magical supplements. They promise you overnight results. Burn fat overnight. Get jacked overnight. People shout back, 'Take my money.' Time and again, data has shown that these supplements do nothing at best. There is data suggesting BCAAs could actually lead to muscle loss. Still, people would want to buy it. © MensXP If you really want to invest in supplements, read this piece. 3. Cut Out Carbs From Your Diet Carbs raise insulin. Insulin makes you fat. Carbs are evil. Carbs are everything that's wrong with humanity. Carbs cause cancer, etc. All this stupidity is spewed by certain 'experts' who believe they know everything about nutrition based on articles published by a journalist who has a company thriving on lying to people. Suddenly, these people become gurus and have a herd of sheep worshipping them. What really matters for weight loss? A sustained calorie deficit. The laws of thermodynamics dictate changes in body stores and weight. Eat carbs or do keto, does not make any difference. Pick a diet that helps you adhere to a calorie deficit. There is no one-size-fits-all. So, if you think you need to stop eating carbs to lose weight and you actually enjoy eating carbs, do not go down the ketogenic rabbit hole. I hope this article speaks to you and calls you out on the bullshit you have been listening. Spreading bullshit is just one part of the problem. Accepting and following the bullshit blindly is a bigger problem.

  4. Last week Rajkot police issued a notification to ban PUBG Mobile citing the game to be 'addictive' and harmful for youngsters. Well, if you thought that people would get away playing the game after the ban, then guess what? You were wrong. Within just five days, Rajkot police have arrested 10 youngsters for playing the battle royale game and violating the ban in different parts of the city like Junagadh, Nana Mava Road, Vaswani Road, Atmiya College Road and Jagannath Chowk areas. All these youngsters were aged between 19 and 25 years, and they were playing the game in a public place. © PUBG Mobile The accused were arrested and their mobile phones were seized. They were released on bail later. However, it does send out a stern message that the ban won't remain just on paper. While speaking to TOI, Police Inspector VS Vanzara of Rajkot taluka police station said, “All these students were arrested for violating the notification issued by police commissioner. They were released on bail later.” The ban notification, in case you're wondering, was issued on March 7 by the Rajkot police commissioner, and it's currently in effect in the city. Anyone caught playing the game would be liable to action under sections 144 and 37(3).
  5. Abhinandan Varthaman - the name literally every Indian knows and will never, ever forget. The Wing Commander has now become the epitome of bravery and courage in the country and no could be more proud about it. It's actually not just him, but his name as well that has inspired people and some have even named their new-born after him. Bollywood is also not behind, and people are already planning to make movies about him. But, some people have also decided to cash in on his popularity in the worst way. Turns out, a lot of fake accounts with his name sprung up online soon after his release and well, it's not him, folks! We all know how the number game on social media works, and it's so sad that some people will go to any extreme lengths to get that, even if it means impersonating a national hero online. Government sources confirm that this is a fake Twitter account #AbhinandanVarthaman pic.twitter.com/4mxahDz7Gn — ANI (@ANI) March 3, 2019 Even the Indian Air Force had to step in and issue a proper warning as more and more fake accounts popped up. #FAKE ACCOUNTS : Wg Cdr Abhinandan Varthaman does not have a social media account on any portal (Facebook /Instagram /Twitter). Please avoid following any fake accounts being used in the name of any IAF Airwarrior for spreading misinformation. Jai Hind!!! pic.twitter.com/nG8C7ZUkQ6 — Indian Air Force (@IAF_MCC) March 6, 2019 So, just a PSA, yes we all would love to follow him on Twitter, but obviously, the real him. Beware of the fake accounts!
  6. What started out as a democratic debate on live TV for Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) professor Madhumita Ray, soon turned into a war of words and might, when she went on national television to say that India should opt for peace and not war when it comes to dealing with Pakistan, post the deadly Pulwama terror attack. Following the debate on Kanak News on 18th February, which also featured Colonel Purna Chandra Patnaik (retd.) of the Indian Army, where she urged that India shouldn't resort to war against Pakistan post the Pulwama attack, the Development Theory & Practice and Sociology professor at KIIT was asked to hand in her resignation. (c) KIIT/LinkedIN Social media erupted after the programme was aired and under the pressure of public scrutiny and wrath, the KIIT management asked Madhumita to quit. “On February 20, I was ordered by the management to resign and leave the university within 24 hours. I did so on the next day.” Madhumita told Odisha Sun Times. However, KIIT has said that public complaints led to this action against Madhumita. However, regardless of what her statement brings her way, Madhumita has stood by her words and beliefs. She told Odisha Sun Times, “I feel what I said is right and stand by my words. War is not at all a solution.” We believe that Madhumita's comment should have been received with graciousness and a liberal approach, expected of a democratic nation where every individual is allowed to keep their point and express their personal opinions, just like how others who disagree with a said opinion are allowed to express their dissent. I know Madhumita Ray too, & I hope better sense prevails in Kalinga Institute. https://t.co/QEeVbbA86E — arkajasingh (@arkajasingh) February 26, 2019 At a time when hate and intolerance come easy, we need to look for ways that ensure that innocent lives are not treated as collateral damage, when it comes to dealing with matters of border security and geographies, as far as possible. But to take away someone's means of livelihood for sharing their opinion, and one that is rooted in experience and concern, is unjust and unfortunate. Considering that Madhumita wasn't even given a notice period goes on to show that KIIT has not just been unethical, but also unprofessional in handling the matter.
  7. Ever since his decision to turn professional four years ago, Indian boxer Vijender Singh has enjoyed an undefeated 10-0 winning streak while having bagged the WBO Asia Pacific and Oriental Super Middleweight titles. View this post on Instagram Still in the ring ðð½ð®ð³ #10yearchallenge #boxing #india #instagram A post shared by Vijender Singh (@singhvijender) on Jan 17, 2019 at 1:21am PST With Lee Markham pulling out of the 13th July 2018 fight and although Singh's UK promoters were looking for a new alternative, nothing formidable came of it as Singh has not fought in a professional ring since December 2017. Now after over one year of inactivity, the Indian champ has decided to take his talents to the United States, the land of opportunities. Known for producing some of the best athletes with the likes of Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson and now Floyd Mayweather Jr., the US has been known as the ultimate dream destination for all the bouters looking for greatness. The 10-0 boxer is moving to the States in hopes of fighting the biggest active names in the business and according to the Times of India, is hoping to go 50-0 throughout his career, a feat achieved only by the great 'Money' Mayweather. View this post on Instagram I got a new jet for my birthday #AirMayweather #TMT Photo Credit: @tmtpilot A post shared by Floyd Mayweather (@floydmayweather) on Feb 24, 2018 at 8:39pm PST But exactly how difficult is that going to be? Beginning with the fact that going undefeated throughout your entire is next to impossible, what could be a challenge bigger than Singh's opponents is his age. Mayweather was 11-0 when he was just 20, 13 years younger than what the Indian boxer is today. By the time the American boxer had turned 33, he was already 42-0. Also, now that he has decided to move to Los Angeles, the home to brilliant fighters like Canelo Álvarez and Michael Fielding who compete on a level much higher than Singh was used to during his time in the UK, his technique and finishing abilities will be put to test. Not to doubt the Indian boxer's talents, who is missing the square ring and is desperate for his next brawl, we'd like to wish him all the luck in the world for his move to the city of angels.
  8. The ghastly suicide terror attack that resulted in the loss of lives of brave Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel continues to be condemned across the globe. While many have come up to aid the families of the martyrs, others have called for an immediate to isolate Pakistan for their alleged role in the Pulwama terror attack. The sports fraternity, too, has joined hands to do their bit in one of the darkest hours. While Virat Kohli was seen postponing the 'Indian Sports Honours' to show solidarity for the jawans, Virender Sehwag was seen offering educational support to the children of the slain soldiers. While Pakistan continues to face backlash following the terror strike, their decorated T20 tournament - Pakistan Super League (PSL) - is now in danger after losing its prime broadcaster. Are you ready for #KhelDeewanoKa? â³ pic.twitter.com/ZL8bLu4bAG — PakistanSuperLeague (@thePSLt20) February 14, 2019 IMG Reliance has pulled out from broadcasting the fourth edition of the PSL in protest against the Pulwama terrorist attack. The PSL 2019 had already become the butt of all jokes after the headliner Pitbull refused, at the last minute, to perform at the opening ceremony, leaving the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) red-faced. And, the latest development has further marred the league. "Due to unfortunate events a couple of days back which resulted in the death of Indian soldiers, IMG Reliance is pulling out with immediate effect, from offering broadcast production services for PSL. The incident that occurred is deeply regrettable," stated a mail addressed to Sohaib Sheikh and Kamil Khan of the PCB, the content of which is in possession of PTI. Being the lone producers of the event, IMG Reliance's pull-out means that the PSL 2019 will go off the air unless the PCB brings in alternate production services, an official told TOI. PCB statement on production of #HBLPSL 2019 https://t.co/Pc7kV5P4rW — PCB Official (@TheRealPCB) February 17, 2019 In response, the PCB also issued a statement wherein it expressed disappointment at IMG Reliance's move, claiming that "sports and politics should be kept separate". “We have been informed by IMG Reliance that they will be unable to partner with us for the remaining HBL PSL 2019 and PCB has reserved all its rights. The PCB always had a contingency plan in place, and we are confident we will be in a position to announce the new partner on Monday after the completion of the formalities,” PCB's Managing Director Wasim Khan said. “The PCB has also noted the recent turn of events and expresses its extreme disappointment as we have always believed and emphasised that sports and politics should be kept separate. History tells us that sports, particularly cricket, have always played a key role in building bridges between people and countries," he added. Voicing PCB's dissent at the covering of Pakistan PM Imran Khan's portrait at the Cricket Club of India (CCI), Wasim said: “Unfortunately, denying India cricket fans the right to follow HBL PSL by blocking all digital coverage as well as covering or removing portrait of former Pakistan cricket captain and Prime Minister Imran Khan and other legendary cricketers from one of the most historic cricket clubs and venues are highly regrettable actions. The PCB intends to take up these incidents with the BCCI and the ICC at the upcoming ICC committee meeting in Dubai later this month”.

The six-team franchise-based tournament is currently being held in Dubai and Sharjah before it moves to Pakistan for the final eight games, including the all-important final in Karachi.
  9. Having graced the silver screen with his par excellence acting skills and essaying strong, meaningful roles in films and web series, this year has been a momentous one for Nawazuddin Siddiqui. The man charmed his way into the hearts of his audience with his stellar deliveries on-screen, and there is much more - bigger and better things - in store for him in the upcoming new year. After his entertaining performance as Gaitonde in 'Sacred Games' and solid portrayal of writer-poet Saadat Hasan Manto in Nandita Das' latest creation, Nawazuddin is yet again getting ready to star in a biopic. © Instagram Releasing early next year, Nawazuddin is set to play the role of founder and former Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray, in his upcoming movie 'Thackeray' directed by Abhijit Panse and written by Shiv Sena politician Sanjay Raut. While we have already watched and admired the actor's superior acting in the movie's teaser which was released last month, it is however this active snippet circulating on social media that's gaining a lot of attention. In a latest clip from the movie, Nawazuddin is seen making his way to his car in all his political glory. However, it is the uncanny resemblance of the actor to Bal Thackeray that's got the viewers lose their shit. Take a look at the clip here: View this post on Instagram A glimpse into #Thackeray starring @nawazuddin._siddiqui #Bollywood #ZoomTV #Nawaz #NawazuddinSiddiqui #Video #Biopic #Film A post shared by Zoom TV (@zoomtv) on Dec 16, 2018 at 10:26pm PST Wrapped in saffron and adorned by iconic Bal Thackeray paraphernalia, the resemblance between the two men is indeed massive. The movie promises an insight into the life and rise of one of Maharashtra's greatest political leader, and it is safe to say that Nawazuddin seem pretty close to doing justice to the magnanimous personality.
  10. Fitness has been a popular industry in 2018. It has become lucrative to be a part of it, as people are endlessly spending their money on fitness products and services like coaching, supplements, personal training, etc. At the same time, charlatans have made quick profit as well, as their sole purpose is to mislead people and take their money. They go to extremes like launching a Ketogenic Whey Protein to injecting steroids in young kids who want to build some muscle or lose some fat. Like every cloud has a silver lining, there are still sensible, helpful, and smart people in the industry who genuinely want to help people out giving the right information. If you do not want to go down the rabbit hole of misinformation and potentially hurt yourself in the name of fitness, you need to follow these accounts today (in no particular order). 1. Martin MacDonald (@martinnutrition) View this post on Instagram Post Day 1 of L2 Fitness Summit gym session culminated in this epic dream team photo. â â Roll on Day 2 with Sohee kicking things off and me closing out the show! â â Can't wait! â â A post shared by Martin MacDonald (@martinnutrition) on Sep 30, 2018 at 5:05am PDT Martin is the founder and CEO of Mac Nutrition Uni, a one-year evidence-based nutrition course which has been endorsed by doctors and industry experts equally.

If you have not heard it yet, I would highly recommend you to do so. 2. James Smith (@jamessmithpt) View this post on Instagram Day 1 - White girl wasted at not one but two brunches. Fat lip and sore elbow from what I assume was play fighting on a giant inflatable flamingo at the first brunch. - Not even sure how but came home wearing the wrong flip flops, another day in fitness. - Today's agenda? Survive another brunch. TBC A post shared by James Smith (@jamessmithpt) on Nov 27, 2018 at 10:32pm PST A personal trainer from the UK, he has a unique no-bullshit style of delivering his information.

He runs a subscription website where he aims to educate people and make them self-sufficient to stay fit. 3. Spencer Nadolsky (@drnadolsky) View this post on Instagram Want to have a doc who can help you with your blood sugars, cholesterol, and blood pressure through lifestyle changes? I'm right here. Not only that but I'll actually have time to spend with you since I got out of the regular inefficient medical system. - Right now you go to your doctor and you get about 10 minutes with them. They tell you what you already know. You already know you need to eat better. You know you need to do more physical activity and you understand that your weight may be causing some of your issues. Problem is, the doc probably doesn't know how to help you and if they do, they don't even have enough time. - So here's the deal, @steadymd asked me a couple years ago to start taking patients via online to help with this madness. I've capped myself around 220 patients for about a year now but I'm opening it up to more (about 30 more). - How does it work? You pay 99 bucks a month and you get an initial hour long video consult with me. I have my license in most states now. Sorry rest of the world I don't have power elsewhere. - After the initial hour long consult where I get to know you, I can order labs and even medicines if you need refills (no controlled meds through the internet like adderall or testosterone sorry). You then have access to me via your phone or computer similar to text messaging. - We do not take insurance. This allows us to spend time on you without the insurance hassles. - How can I do physical exams? Technically I don't. I can do most things I need through talking to you and looking at labs but there are new cool gadgets I can recommend that allow me to listen to your heart and lungs better than if I were in the office with you. - Who is this for? This is perfect for those who have blood sugar/pressure/cholesterol issues along with hypothyroidism. Those tend to be the patients that love it most. I have gotten many patients off their sugar and pressure meds using lifestyle. - You will also have the option of adding on my amazing nutrition coach for an extra fee once you sign up. - I wouldn't sign up if you're healthy and don't have an extra $99 a month. - Ready to start? click link in bio to sign up A post shared by Spencer Nadolsky (@drnadolsky) on Nov 23, 2018 at 7:28am PST An obesity medicine physician by profession, Dr. Nadolsky has the necessary education and the experience to deal with issues related to weight and obesity. He tries to simplify things for people struggling to lose weight and advocates the message of 'there is no one size that fits all'. 4.

  11. For anyone who thinks the #MeToo movement doesn't matter, here's a real-life positive impact it has brought. MJ Akbar has officially resigned from his position of Minister of State for External Affairs and it's a win for everyone. This comes after journalist Priya Ramani accused Akbar of sexual harassment, following which he filed a civil defamation case against her. However, 19 woman journalists came forward and asked the Patiala court to consider their testimonies in the suit filed by Akbar. In a statement, that came out just a few hours ago, Akbar said he had decided to seek justice in a court of law in his personal capacity, however, still maintaining that the charges against him are false. Twitter The statement read, “Since I have decided to seek justice in a court of law in my personal capacity, I deem it appropriate to step down from office and challenge false accusations levied against me, also in a personal capacity.” It went on, “I have, therefore, tendered my resignation from the office of Minister of State for External Affairs. I am deeply grateful to Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and to the External Affairs Minister Smt Sushma Swaraj for the opportunity they gave me to serve my country.” https://twitter.com/hashtag/MJAkbar?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#MJAkbar resigns from his post of Minister of State External Affairs MEA. https://t.co/dxf4EtFl5P">pic.twitter.com/dxf4EtFl5P — ANI (@ANI) https://twitter.com/ANI/status/1052518966751424514?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">October 17, 2018 And, as soon as the news broke of his stepping down, the reactions starting pouring in with men and women coming together to celebrate this incredible achievement for the movement.

  12. Often considered to be one of the most underrated elements of your attire, the shoes you wear go a long way in making you look stylish, trendy and fashion-forward. After all, if you accentuate your ensemble with the right pair of shoes, you'll be able to make a lasting (and fashionable) impression. But ensuring your shoes add up to your style statement, and don't take away from it, has as much to do with the type of shoes you're wearing as it does with how you maintain them. After all, if you don't take care of your shoes, and start wearing ones that show clear signs of dust, dirt, wear and tear, the only thing those shoes will achieve is making you look like a hobo. So on that note, here are five basic tips to follow that'll help you take care of your shoes. 1) Ensure You Clean Them Properly, Depending On Their Material © Pexels You might have the best Adidas running shoes, the best Nike running shoes or even the best Puma running shoes in your collection, but if you don't clean them properly, the only thing you'll ensure is that they won't last long. And how you clean your shoes solely depends on one factor - the type of material they are made of. So if you have canvas shoes, cleaning them with a wet cloth or sponge is the way to go. Alternatively, suede shoes require protective sprays to be cleaned and if you own leather shoes, then you need to use a leather conditioner to clean them. 2) Make Sure You Spray New Shoes With A Waterproof Protector © Unsplash Regardless of what the weather forecasters might have you believe, there is absolutely no accounting for Indian weather and its unpredictability. As such, if you see dark clouds in the sky, don't shy away from spraying your shoes (especially if they happen to be brand new) with a waterproof protector. 3) Make Sure You Stock Up On Sock Liners © Unsplash While we try to protect our shoes from any damage from the outside (such as rains and dust), we often end up forgetting about the damage that can be caused from the inside. The sweat and perspiration from your feet can leave nasty stains inside your shoes - especially if they are made of canvas. In fact, if you're using running shoes, then you're guaranteed to sweat from your feet. As such, stocking up on sock liners ends up being highly advisable. 4) When Not Using Them, Make Sure You Store Your Shoes Properly © Unsplash It's not just good enough to take care of your shoes when you're about to go out wearing them, you also have to make sure that you properly store them when you're not using them. In fact, most shoes end up getting damaged because they are not stored in the correct and proper manner. So when storing your own shoes, you need to keep three things in mind - make sure you keep them off the floor, ensure that you don't store them in wire racks and try to use shoe boxes to store them in. 5) Be Extra Careful With White Shoes © Unsplash While all shoes you possess - regardless of their colour or type - need to be taken care of, you need to be extra careful when it comes to white shoes. White, after all, gets easily dirty and is more prone to showing off stains and marks. So make sure you pay extra attention to the white shoes in your collection because, while you might have splurged a fortune owning the best white sneakers for men, it'll all go to waste if you don't take proper care of them. Pro tip: You can use white polish to cover minuscule marks, a toothbrush to clean dust or dirt particles, and bleach for cleaning larger stains. Also, always keep a wet cloth handy.
  13. As a well-groomed and luscious beard can (more often than not) make all the difference in transforming you into a hit among ladies, it's probably safe to assume that you'd want to follow all the tips that'll help you grow and maintain a proper beard. After all, taking care of your facial growth shouldn't be an exercise that is just confined to the month of November. And since there should never be a time frame attached to looking your absolute best, here are five essential tips all Indian men should keep in mind if they want to show off a badass mane. 1) Beard Oils Are Essential, Invest In Them Wisely © Instagram Official/ Vicky Kaushal Your beard requires adequate grooming and care, something you cannot afford to ignore if you have any plans of growing and maintaining a proper mane. As such, opting for the best beard oils out there is not only advisable, but also highly recommended. After all, bead oils provide the proper nourishment and care to your skin and hair, enabling you to grow a beard that'll make you the envy of many men. 2) Your Choice Of Trimmer Makes All The Difference © Unsplash As was the case with beard oils, the type of trimmer you opt for also plays an instrumental role in ensuring your beard is well groomed. As such, you need to ensure that you pay a lot of attention to your choice of trimmer. Whether you want to opt for a rotary or foil trimmer or a wireless or wired option, ensuring that you get your hands on the best trimmers for men is highly advisable. Pro tip: Opting for some of the best Philips trimmers out there will make for a premium and cost-effective option. 3) Keep Your Skin Clean © Instagram Official/ Kartik Aryan You might have the best beard trimmer and beard oil in your possession, but it'll be all for naught if you don't take care of your skin. After all, keeping your skin clean and hydrated is just as important as investing in the right beard care products. So invest in quality face washes and scrubs, premium shaving creams and gels and A-grade aftershave lotions. 4) Don't Forget About Your Mooch! © Instagram Official/ Ranveer Singh This is one of those rookie mistakes that most men end up making. Taking care of your beard but neglecting your mooch is an absolute no-no. So make sure you take care of your mooch as well by investing in the best moustache waxes and oils out there. Pro tip: Ustraa and Beardhood come out with some of the best moustahce waxes you could get your hands on. 5) Vitamin B Is Great For Hair Growth, Incorporate It In Your Diet © Instagram Official/ Ranveer Singh You are what you eat. As it turns out, this is true for beard care too as adapting a diet that is rich in Vitamin B will do wonders for your hair growth. So eat as many nuts, eggs, chickpeas, lentils and whole grain breads as you can, and you'll be one step closer to getting and maintaining that beard you've always desired.
  14. I think it can safely be said that, perhaps after cricket, badminton has become that one sport that has brought the most international glory to India. Considering the massive accomplishments of the likes of Saina Nehwal and P.V Sindhu, badminton has become a sport where India is excelling in. As such, the potential for aspiring badminton players to make it big is monumental. So if you happen to be a budding or aspiring badminton player who wants to make it big, following these simple (but effective) tips will help you get on the road to becoming a badminton pro. 1) Invest In A Quality Badminton Racket © Instagram/Srikanth Kidambi This one should be an absolute no-brainer. Just like the bat you use pretty much defines how you'll play cricket, the racket you'll be using holds paramount importance in deciding how you'll play badminton. As such, investing in the best badminton rackets out there is not only advisable, but highly recommended. Some reputable brands that you could opt for include Li-Ning, Yonex and Cosco. Pro tip: If you're on a budget, you can opt for the best badminton rackets under Rs 1000 - all of which will deliver the goods without burning a hole in your wallet. 2) Practice Makes You Perfect © Instagram/Saina Nehwal If you ask the most accomplished and renowned athletes of any sport what the secret behind their success is, most of them will tell you that it's practicing. This is true for badminton as well - where the more hours you spend practicing your game and honing your skills, the closer you'll get to realising your dream. Pro tip: Remember, you can easily get injured if you don't take care of your body or exert too much pressure on yourself. So while training is important, doing it at the expense of your physical health is not okay. 3) Don't Underestimate The Influence Your Shoes Can Have On Your Game © Instagram/Srikanth Kidambi Your choice of sports shoes isn't just a fact for flashier sports like soccer or basketball - it plays a significant role in a court game like badminton as well. So don't shy away from investing in the best badminton shoes and you'll be good to go. Apart from helping you take you improve your game, investing in the right shoes will also help you avoid injuring your foot or ankle. Pro tip: Adidas, Puma, Li-Ning and Yonex are premium brands that you could opt for. 4) Invest In A Premium (And Durable!) Shuttlecock © Instagram/Parupalli Kashyap You may have a premium racket and you might have invested in quality shoes as well, but none of it will matter if you don't invest in a premium and durable shuttlecock as well. After all, if you don't practice and hone your skills using a a-grade shuttlecock, how else will you become a pro? Pro tip: Yonex and Li-Ning are known for producing some of the the best shuttlecocks in the market. 5) Know Your Strengths And Work On Your Weaknesses © Instagram/ P.V. Sindhu Knowing your strengths and identifying (and then working) on your weaknesses is absolutely paramount in determining how good (or bad!) of a player you're going to be. After all, without identifying your weakness, how else could you possibly work and improve on that one part of your game which your opponents are most likely to exploit?
  15. Being a good host is not easy - you have to take care of all the arrangements for the party, all the while ensuring that you yourself have a good time. Whether it's the guest list, the music, the food or the drinks - you're solely responsible for it all. While everything has to go right for the party to be a hit, it only takes one screw-up for things to go wrong. In short, a lot goes into being a good host and ensuring that everyone has a great time. So to help our party freaks out there ensure that they throw a kickass party, here are five party tips you should swear by. 1) Make Sure You Have Quality Wireless Speakers At Home © Unsplash Music is kind of the make-it or break-it element of any party. As such, if you want to throw a successful party that most people will remember (and for all the right reasons), then you need to invest in the best portable Bluetooth speakers out there. When looking for such speakers, keep in mind the brand you are opting for, the wireless range of the speakers (you don't want the dancing to be confined to one particular room) and the battery life you'll be getting out of them. Keeping these factors in mind will surely help you make an informed and smart choice. Pro tip: JBL and Boat come out with premium portable speakers that are budget friendly as well. 2) Make Sure You Have All The Bar Accessories You'll Need © Unsplash While you don't necessarily need alcohol to throw a great party, if you and your friends happen to like your whiskey neat and your beers cold, then you need to ensure that you have all the bar accessories you need with you. So make sure you have bottle openers, shot glasses, peg measurers and chilling rocks (look them up) at your disposal. Pro tip: You can check out these amazing deals on Amazon on bar accessories to help yourself prepare for your next party! 3) Be Presentable From Head To Toe © Instagram/ Kartik Aryan A host needs to look presentable - even if it's for a party that only your closest friends would be attending. So make sure you have the best trimmers to groom your beard, the best hair waxes to fix your hair, and the best perfumes for men to smell your absolute best. Pro tip: There's a reason why smart-casual blazers are trending right now. 4) Stock On Food And Drinks Beforehand © Unsplash Running out of food or drinks is perhaps the biggest cardinal sin a host can make. So always stock on them beforehand by making sure you have enough to cater to more than just the number of people you've invited. Pro tip: Storing on extra food and drinks will also help you be prepared for the unexpected plus ones (sometimes just unavoidable) who might show up. 5) Finally, Be Prepared For Any Potential Screw Up As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure. Any potential screw up, if not properly planned for, can singularly ruin any party. So plan in advance for unexpected power outages, friends who get too sloshed, broken furniture (in case the party gets too wild), and annoying neighbours.
  16. I think it's safe to assume that all of us want to be fit. Whether it's because we want to be the best version of ourselves, because we want to be strong, or because we just want to live a healthier lifestyle, staying fit has - thankfully - become a lifestyle choice that more and more people are adhering to. And while going to the gym is certainly the most effective way of staying in shape, going for a run has its benefits as well. In fact, most people who choose to not go to the gym usually rely on their morning or evening runs to stay fit. But running can often seem like a monotonous route (pun intended!) to take, one that can seem pretty basic and mundane. So with that in mind, here are 5 running tips you should adhere to if you want to make it more fun (and safe!) for you. 1) Use Quality Headphones For Running © Pexels Just like any other workout, listening to music while you go for a run can actually help energise you. As such, owning a quality pair of wireless headphones and listening to your favourite songs is a great way of pumping yourself up during your runs. When searching for the best Bluetooth headphones for running, you should keep an eye out on ones belonging to premium brands (JBL, Boat and Skullcandy come to mind) that offer a good wireless range and optimum battery life. 2) Invest In The Right Shoes © Pexels While it may not involve you having to go to a gym, you shouldn't forget that running is a physical exercise. And just like any physical exercise you do, the risk of injury is always there. As such, investing in the best running shoes is mandatory. There are many factors that you should keep in mind before you purchase a pair of running shoes - your weight, the drop of the shoe (which is basically the difference between the forefoot measurements and the heel) and the cushioning that the shoe will provide you. If you make an informed choice, not only do you make running more fun, but you also ensure that you don't get accidently injured. 3) Switch Things Up A Bit It's not for nothing that people say that variety is the spice of life! As such, you can also mix in some cardio exercises in the middle of your runs to break the monotony and make things more fun. For instance, adding a few jumping jacks, butt kicks, squat jumps and jumping lunges to your run can make things less boring. 4) Take A Walk Or Jog Break © Pexels Nowhere is it written that you should run for 30 minutes straight without taking any breaks whatsoever - after all, you're not Usain Bolt! So it's advisable to take walk/jog breaks while you're running. Not only will doing so ensure that you don't run out of stamina, but it will also help you be gentler on your body. 5) Don't Do It Alone Just like having a gym partner can make working out less mundane, going for your runs with a friend or family member can make them a lot more fun as well. Apart from ensuring that you'll always have a source of motivation right next to you, you can rely on your running partner for some healthy competition as well.
