  1. Post the deadly Pulwama terror attack, the entire country is left in a state of horror and shock. Over 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives and we're still trying to put the pieces together, all across the country, not sure if they'll fit anymore. But an international humanitarian organisation by the name of 'Khalsa Aid' and some local Gurudwaras and individual Sikhs helped the Kashmiri population who were trying to escape vigilante mob attacks all across the country and we know for sure there is still some faith left in humanity. © Twitter The organisation gave protection, food and shelter to many stranded Kashmiris and helped them reach back safe to their homes in Kashmir. The violence erupted all over North India where many Kahsmiri students were being attacked in retaliation to the attack on the 14th of February and with the help of Khalsa Aid, they've all made it back home safe. © Twitter As a mark of gratitude and in order to thank the Sikh communities, the Kashmiris have now expressed their love for the Sikhs for helping them out in times of need and have offered free services to the Sikhs, namely medical treatments and education and free snow bike rides in Gulmarg. © Twitter So much so, a cartoon caricatured by a Kashmiri cartoonist by the name of Suhail Naqshbandi has gone viral on social media. The sketch depicts a Sikh offering a helping hand to a drowning Kashmiri, narrating the benevolent services and gratitude towards the brotherhood. Sardar means a leader and they lead by example. Hats off to them for being everywhere to help the humanity. @Khalsa_Aid #kashmirisindistress #kashmir pic.twitter.com/H6kUfIVlzk — Suhail Naqshbandi (@hailsuhail) 20 February 2019 The cartoonist tweeted: “Sardar means a leader and they lead by example. Hats off for being everywhere to help.” The post went viral on Twitter and was re-tweeted many times. The cartoon was also shared by former Jammu & Kashmir chief ministers Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah. I salute our Sikh brethren who came to the aid of young Kashmiris all over the country. Admire their exemplary spirit to serve with utmost dignity & fortitude. https://t.co/rOGN4mS2PA — Mehbooba Mufti (@MehboobaMufti) 20 February 2019 This cartoon is very apt. The Sikh sangat has gone above & beyond the call of duty in reaching out & helping Kashmiris in distress, whether in Jammu or outside the state.

They've taught us what true brotherhood really looks like. We at MensXP would like to extend much gratitude towards the community and we hope they continue such good and kind work always.
  2. Ever since the infamous Pulwama terror attack, former Indian cricketers and other sports officials have been talking about boycotting the Pakistan cricket team during the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 to be held in England and Wales in June. With Punjab Cricket Association removing the photos of iconic Pakistani cricketers from the Mohali stadium and now BCCI doing the same from the head office, the rage in the cricket fraternity is burning deep against our neighbours. A couple of days ago, former Indian bowler Harbhajan Singh voiced his displeasure against Pakistan. "Don't play the World Cup match with Pakistan on June 16 — country comes first for all of us and we are all standing with our forces,” said the cricketer. “Pakistan has been promoting cross-border terrorism and this attack was unbelievably shocking.” On Wednesday, former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly echoed his ex-teammate's opinion when he basically said that Team India is strong enough to be a success at the World Cup even if they do not play against the match Sarfraz Ahmed and his men. But amidst all the chaos there are all but four decisions that the Board of Cricket Control in India can choose to take and all of them are bound to cause multi-fold consequences: Decision 1: Complete Boycott Of Pakistan During The World Cup © Reuters A complete boycott would involve forfeiting every game against Pakistan during the World Cup. In a relatively shorter tournament of the top 10 teams in the world, every side is going to play at least one game against the nine others during the points round. Without a doubt, India is more than capable to making it to the semis even if they give up some points but what if the two teams meet in the knockout rounds or worse yet, in the final? Will BCCI be willing to up give the chance of winning the World Cup? Decision 2: Forfeiting Just The Points Round Match © Reuters If India decides to boycott the Men in Green during the points round, they still have eight matches to cover up. Sure, the burden on Virat Kohli and team's shoulders would be a tad bit more than the others but it's nothing they can't handle. Say, the Men in Blue do meet them in the semis of the final and decide to play them, then does that not defeat the whole purpose of the protest? Doesn't it feel like a facade, an act to show revolt against Pakistan? Decision 3: Campaign To Ban Pakistan From The World Cup © Reuters According to a report by News 18, the Committee of Administration (CoA) has ordered BCCI to push the International Cricket Council (ICC) into banning the Pakistani cricket team from participating in the 2019 World Cup altogether. There is no denying the fact that India is the major revenue source for ICC and if BCCI puts them in a situation to choose between the two teams, the council is likely to tilt in favour of India. However, if things were to go south and ICC rejects BCCI's 'Ban-Pakistan' campaign, not only will it play against the public image of the Board but it will also lead to people questioning India's ability to host the 2021 Champions Trophy and the 2023 World Cup. Decision 4: Play Pakistan Regardless © Reuters This may turn out to be upsetting to a lot of us but this is the most likely decision BCCI is going to take. The attack has left a deep impact in the heart of every Indian citizen but all the hard work put in by Team India must be rewarded. The revolt against terrorism is not disregarded but the World Cup is important too. It is easy for people to suggest the boycott but even if there is a slight chance of this measure leading to a sad end to India's world cup journey, BCCI will act against it. In such times of distress the need for rational decision-making is of utmost importance. Loud noises and anger looks dramatic, sure, but what impacts would take leave on BCCI and the Indian cricket team in the long run must be taken into consideration. The ultimate authority lies in the hands of the Indian board.
  3. It seems like Samsung is all set to take on the iPhone XR with its own affordable version of the Galaxy S10. The Galaxy S10E boasts flagship level specifications but costs less than its bigger brother. It has almost every feature as the Galaxy S10/S10+ but with a few features stripped out. The Galaxy S10E is priced at $750 which is the same price as the iPhone XR and will naturally compete with Apple's affordable version of the iPhone. Having said that, there are some noticeable differences between the two smartphones such as the processor, camera setups and display size/quality. An affordable flagship smartphone is what makes a smartphone a huge success in India. It's a formula that has been working for OnePlus and Poco Phone for now and it seems like Samsung wants a slice of the pie. The Galaxy S10E will be the more affordable variant in the entire Galaxy series of 2019 and here are some of the key areas where it will challenge the iPhone XR. Cameras © Twitter The Galaxy S10E has a slight advantage over the iPhone XR in this department as it has a dual camera setup where one of the lenses is an ultra-wide lens. The primary sensor has dual aperture f1.5/f2.4 whereas the iPhone XR has a single 12 MP, f/1.8, 26mm (wide) sensor. The Galaxy S10E will be able to do everything the iPhone XR can with the additional ability to take wide angle pictures. In terms of picture quality, that remains to be seen when we get to take it for a spin ourselves. However, the iPhone XR is capable of taking some awesome pictures which you can have a look in our review here. The Processor © Samsung The Galaxy S10E is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 chipset in the US whereas the Indian variant will come with Samsung's own Exynos 9820 chipset. Apple has an advantage here as the iPhone XR is powered by the A12 Bionic chip which blows Qualcomm's 855 chipsets out of the water. Even though Qualcomm is catching up with Apple's A12's performance, it's still slower in performance. The story remains the same with Samsung's Exynos 9820 chipset. Apple's A12 Bionic Chipset is the first chip that uses the 7nm architecture and has three important components. It has the CPU, GPU and Apple's own Neural Engine. The Exynos 9820 uses the 8nm architecture which is not quite up to the mark when it comes to battery life and performance when compared to the A12 Bionic SoC. Display © BCCL Samsung is known for its displays and the Galaxy S10E has a 5.8-inch AMOLED; 2,280x1,080 pixels panel. The iPhone XR, on the other hand, has a 6.1-inch LCD Retina Display; 1,792x828 pixels which are not in the same league as the S10E. Even though the iPhone XR has one of the most beautiful LCD screens we've ever seen, it still cannot beat Samsung's AMOLED display with higher pixels and resolution. The S10E's display even has a higher pixel density at 522ppi. It Has Reverse Charging © Samsung Both smartphones have wireless charging support but the Galaxy S10E takes it a step further. Then new Galaxy smartphones have a new feature called PowerShare. It lets the smartphone charge other devices wirelessly. We've already seen this feature on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro; however, Samsung has brought this feature to a more affordable device.
  4. Virat Kohli and the Indian cricket team have been on a roll ever since the beginning of 2019. Having won the Test and ODI series in Australia and the ODI series in New Zealand has not only led to a number of individual awards for the Men in Blue but also gave a confidence boost to the team. Kohli himself has been on a tear with 2018 being his year without doubt. For his brilliance as the captain of a very capable Indian side and his exceptional skills with the bat, the International Cricket Council (ICC) decided to honour the athlete with three of the most prestigious awards during the ICC Awards last month. ICC Men's Cricketer of the Year â ICC Men's Test Cricketer of the Year â ICC Men's ODI Cricketer of the Year â Captain of ICC Test Team of the Year â Captain of ICC Men's ODI Team of the Year â Let's hear from the man himself, @imvKohli! #ICCAwards ð pic.twitter.com/3M2pxyC44n — ICC (@ICC) January 22, 2019 Currently ranked number 2 in the ICC Ranking for ODI teams, India consists of some very talented batsmen in Virat Kohli (World Rank 1), Rohit Sharma (World Rank 2) and Shikhar Dhawan (World Rank 10) and bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah (World Rank 1), Kuldeep Yadav (World Rank 4) and Yuzvendra Chahal (World Rank 5) who have helped immensely in restricting the opponents to lower totals. There is no doubting that the Indian cricket team is one of the greatest sides in today's era and is considered to be one of the favourites for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019. However, there is another team that has been having one of the most iconic runs in the modern age. The England cricket team has literally been on top of their game throughout 2018. Ranked number 1 on ICC ODI team rankings, Eoin Morgan's team might as well be the greatest team England has ever cheered for. While hitter Joe Root (World Rank 4) and one of the finest English all-rounders in Moeen Ali (World Rank 5) have contributed heavily towards keeping their side on top, players like Adil Rashid (World Rank 8) and Chris Woakes (World Rank 12) have been a terror for the rival batsmen. In the latest display of their brilliance, during the first of five ODI games to take place against the Windies, England chased down a massive score of 360 runs with extremely ease nullifying Chris Gayle's heroic comeback innings in which he scored his 24th ODI century while hitting 12 long sixes. What an incredible victory for England! They've chased down 361 – it's England's highest successful run-chase in ODI cricket! Jason Roy and Joe Root have led the way with centuries to help England go 1-0 up in the series. #WIvENG | SCORECARD â¬ï¸ https://t.co/pQbWOWuEQM pic.twitter.com/xnc1hAiLlA — ICC (@ICC) February 20, 2019 Opener Jason Roy and middle-order powerhouse Joe Root, both scored centuries at supernatural strike rates while skipper Eoin Morgan also contributed to the win with 65 runs. Winning with an over and a half and 6 wickets in hand, England get the world know that they are already world cup-ready. While teams like New Zealand and South Africa along with a replenished Australian side (with in return of Steve Smith and David Warner) will make for some tough competition, it will be Morgan's men who will surely pose the greatest threat to Virat Kohli's dream of lifting the world cup as the captain of the Indian cricket team.
  5. The Pulwama attack has shaken the country, and pulled a few raw strings that should not have been meddled with. Kashmir is a sensitive issue for the Indian subcontinent, merely because we consider it a part of us and one of our own. While some notorious elements continuously try to turn the youth of the valley against their own brethren, and often succeed in brainwashing them into believing otherwise, the mutual sense of belonging-ness and unity continues to blow strong in the valleys. © Facebook In a show of solidarity and love for the nation, its people and the armed forces, over 2,500 young men from Jammu & Kashmir turned up for army recruitment drive in Baramulla. An official spoke to ANI and said that, thousands of young Kashmiri boys turned up to serve their nation, for recruitment for 111 vacant posts in the Indian Army. Apart from earning a livelihood and protecting their families, these hopeful young men also told ANI that getting hired would also give them the opportunities to share their side of the story with the rest of the country, raise awareness and sensitise fellow Indians about the crisis in the Kashmir valley. © ANI "We cannot go outside Kashmir. This is a great opportunity for us. We wish that more vacancies are offered to us. If Kashmiri personnel will be deployed in the sensitive areas then they can talk to the people and deal with the ongoing crisis", an aspiring candidate was quoted as saying to ANI. Jammu & Kashmir: Several Kashmiri youth take part in an army recruitment drive for 111 vacancies in Baramulla. Bilal Ahmad, army aspirant says, "We will get the chance to sustain our families and serve our nation, what else can one want?" pic.twitter.com/bmtMdYfvsk — ANI (@ANI) February 19, 2019 It must also be told that the rate of unemployment in the area is high with over 26% of youngsters between the age of 18-29 being unemployed. Economic Survey 2017 stated "unsupportive administrative and regulatory framework and lack of transparency" as the main reason behind this state of unemployment.
  6. What usually comes to your mind when you hear the word 'Doctor'? An elderly, pleasant looking gentleman with probably a paunch and kind eyes who either comforts you with his kind eyes or creeps the living daylights out of you with his evil grin (but that's the stuff from horror movies). Anyway, when that imagery is challenged by someone who even remotely falls outside of that category, they tend to leave a lasting impression. Especially, if they go right ahead and look like they stepped out of a model catalogue or the cast of Grey's Anatomy, they deserve to be applauded because hey, it takes a lot of effort to establish oneself as a doctor. Clearly, Dr Rodrigo Sapo has what it takes, and more. He looks like a muscled, bearded model who spends his waking hours in the gym instead of a hospital, and that doesn't even begin to describe what he looks like. Here are 10 pictures that shows why patients line up to get check-ups by him, even when they are not ill. 1.

  7. Mahendra Singh Dhoni evokes emotion as well as passion for cricket like no one else. One of the most popular cricketers, he garners attention for the good, bad and everything in between on the field and outside of it. Apart from being a stellar cricketer. he also gets attention from the beginning for his chameleon hairstyles that have evolved over the years. But here's the thing, they've all represented a phase in his life and changed with the kind of person he's become today. 1. The Long Breezy Hair © Twitter We all remember that Dhoni started with the breezy low maintenance, shoulder length hair. 2. The Long Crop © Twitter Let's be honest, this hairstyle lasted a long time before it was traded for something much shorter for MS Dhoni.This hairstyle has always been iconic. 3. The Short Quiff © Twitter Briefly, Dhoni got a generic hairstyle. Short and simple in its finish but this phase wasn't going to last for very long. 4. The Beginning Of A Mohawk © Twitter Dhoni, apart from being responsible for the cricket dreams of millions of boys, is also responsible for having them cut their hair in a sharp, angular finish just like his. 5. The Iconic Mohawk © Twitter This is the beginning of Dhoni trying out bolder hairstyles. Here he's transformed his older hairstyle into a fuller, proper mohawk. 6. The No Crop Land © Twitter There came a point in M.S.Dhoni's life when he shaved it all off. Exhibit A. 7. The Buzzed Effect © Twitter The buzz cut version of Dhoni gave serious competition to the non-buzzed versions of Dhoni Singh. 8. The English Crop © Twitter M.S.Dhoni transitioned into a classy hairstyle in the past year and it worked for him. 9. The Recent Cut (66) Dhoni got another sleek hairstyle last week and we can't wait to see what he gets next.
  8. Following a crazy bidding war last December, the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is set to enthral cricket fans as Chennai Super Kings (CSK) host Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the opening clash on 23rd March. With the opening match pitting two of the biggest cricketers Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni against each other, the fans have already begun placing their bets on their favourite team on the social media. Despite the general elections coinciding with the upcoming IPL season, the fact that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has carefully ensured that the matches are played in India, further cheered the home fans. With IPL 2019 just a month away, the buzz amongst the fans in anticipation of the upcoming season appears to be at an all-time high. ð¨ Announcement ð¨: The #VIVOIPL schedule for the first two weeks is out. The first match of the 2019 season will be played between @ChennaiIPL and @RCBTweets Details - https://t.co/wCi6dYHlXL pic.twitter.com/TaYdXNKVSx — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) February 19, 2019 In a bid to get their hands at the prized tickets of the IPL matches, a lot of fans seem to be approaching popular celebrities and cricket bigwigs on the social media, seeking their help. One such hilarious incident has been brought to the limelight by Ishant Sharma's wife Pratima Singh on social media. After going unsold at the auctions last season, Ishant's improved performance with the Indian team in Test cricket helped him in finding a suitor in Delhi Capitals who fought with Rajasthan Royals in the bidding war to secure the services of the seamer for Rs 1 crore. But, while Ishant is busy preparing to live up to his price tag this season, his wife Pratima - a professional basketball player - has found herself tackling the absurd requests of fans. View this post on Instagram For the world its yey !!! IPL is coming , for cricketers and their family OMG IPL is coming !! Log Tickets le liye phone karenge , Tickets maangege , tickets - tickets - tickets ðððð @ishant.sharma29 @divya4india @manishkumar5967 @prashantisingh @akankshasingh4 @vikrant_solanki__ @rajeev1717 @gaurav_chh ð@anuj A post shared by Pratima singh (@pratima0808) on Feb 17, 2019 at 9:20pm PST Fed up by the consistent messages, Pratima decided to troll the cricket fans who were asking her for the IPL match tickets. Taking to Instagram, she shared a screenshot of the conversation with a fan who sought her help for the tickets. "For the world its yey !!! IPL is coming, for cricketers and their family OMG IPL is coming !! Log Tickets le liye phone karenge (people will call for tickets, Tickets maangege (ask for tickets), tickets - tickets - tickets," Pratima captioned the picture. With Ishant being one of the few experienced Indian players who'll not be seen playing in the forthcoming ICC World Cup in May, the Delhi paceman will be eager to reaffirm his credentials with a fine showing for his new franchise in the upcoming IPL season.
  9. While growing up, especially in the 90s, we were all hooked to popular culture which was making its way through to India from all across the globe. One of the most prominent indulgence back them was music and whenever we speak of international music from the 90s, we can't help but unanimously think of the 'King of Pop' Michael Jackson. We've all heard him while growing up. While some us were truly hooked to his music, most of us were enthralled with his style of dancing. Whatever it was, MJ proved to the world that there would never be another music icon like him. © Pintrest But TBH that's not all we've known him for and quite unfortunately, MJ has managed to tarnish his reputation. While the newsroom was always abuzz with his stories, some of them stated that he was a child molester, a paedophile, who would molest little boys in his fantasy themed ranch-home, 'Neverland'. The news came and went like a season and although it baffled most of us, we shrugged it off as a misheard rumour and still gave him the respect he then deserved when he made us live under the realms of secrecy and the lesser known. © HBO Recently, after almost 20 something years, new information has surfaced giving the old rumours much more room and significance. Almost ten years after his death, a documentary has seen brand new light, highlighting evidential facts about MJ indeed molesting little kids in 'Neverland'. The documentary paints a rather unnerving and painful picture of the pop-artist's former ranch and we're feeling absolutely gutted even writing about it. The controversial film focuses on sexual allegations made by two men, whom he befriended when they were boys and asked them to stay with him at Neverland. Wade Robson and James Safechuck were sexually abused by MJ for several years in secrecy at his Nerverland ranch in California. © HBO The documentary has posed several legal threats for HBO and Channel 4 and obviously for the makers too, by Michael Jackson's estate, but the channels will air it regardless, next month. In fact, a new trailer for the documentary dropped just a day ago and the claims seem more real and uncanny than before. The new trailer offers a first look in to Jackson's twisted personality, via a 4 hour documentary, which was first screened at the Sundance Film Festival last month and it absolutely shocked the critics and the audience as they didn't know what was really coming for them. The two boys have absolutely exposed the closeted predator behaviour MJ displayed at his ranch and most of the facts are shocking and unbelievable. © HBO In the movie the accusers explain how Michael had led them to believe that if they ever told anyone about what he was doing to them then they would all end up in jail and so they didn't come forward to tell their story, most of their growing years, even after he passed away. “Everybody wanted to meet Michael or be with Michael,” We drive in, and forget about all your problems, you were in Neverland. It was a fantasy,” Say the boys in the new trailer. © HBO According to Dan Reed, the director this is not a movie about Michael Jackson or of how he abused little boys sexually. The main focus of the film is on how two families trusted Michael Jackson to leave their sons in his care and how much of an effort it took for the boys to reveal the truth to their families, years later, when they were grown men. MJ's estate has criticised the film already, in a 10-page letter addressed to the CEO of HBO but HBO is determined to telecast the documentary, without making any cuts by next month. There have been some attacks towards the film and towards Dan Reed by MJ's fans but given that the situation is fairly tough, this is bound to happen. © HBO “Anyone who sees the film will know it is solely about hearing the stories of two specific individuals and their families in their own words, and that is a focus we are very proud of,” - Reed told a popular publication. For the Indian audience who absolutely love Michael Jackson, maybe it's time to give up your fandom in order to not glorify predators and see them for who they really are. Here's hoping we get to catch the documentary in India sooner than later and it's accessible to easily download or buffer through the interweb.
  10. If you were to pick just one muscle group to grow the best which would result in you looking muscular, what would it be? Pretty sure a lot of you would pick the biceps. But if I were to pick one, it would be the shoulders any given day. Why is that? Shoulders are the muscles that give your upper body the illusion of being big and the much desired V-taper. The V-taper is what the golden era glorified. People found the taper aesthetic and beautiful, all for a reason. © YouTube A lot of you may be doing front raises and dumbbell overhead presses but do not see any good changes in your shoulder. The main reason for this is that you are not training your shoulder for all its functions. Let's understand the functions and look at the exercises you should start incorporating if you want to build those 3D shoulders. Your shoulder muscle is made up of three different muscle fibres 1. Anterior deltoid or front delt 2. Lateral deltoid or side delt 3. Posterior deltoid or rear delt These muscle fibres have distinctive functions or movement patterns. For example: 1. The anterior deltoid enables you to perform shoulder flexion, i.e. raising your shoulders in the front of your body. 2. The lateral deltoid allows you to perform shoulder abduction, i.e. taking the shoulder away from the body at the side. 3. The posterior deltoid enables you to perform horizontal shoulder abduction, i.e. moving your shoulder away in a horizontal position. To build those 3D delts, you need to create a mechanical tension and overload it with time for all the muscle fibres that make up the shoulder. Do you get it why doing a hundred sets of front raises have not yet built your shoulders? Here are the exercises you should do to build 3D shoulders: 1. A Vertical Press © YouTube The vertical pressing has to be the bread and butter of your shoulder workout. You could pick an overhead barbell press or overhead shoulder press to activate the front delts. Data has shown that any vertical press in an incline from 30 degrees to 90 degrees activates the front delts. If you find overhead pressing difficult, you could use a high-incline dumbbell or barbell press as well. Front raises is not a good option to include in my opinion, as a lot of people simply ego lift here. Due to internal rotation during the movement, there are chances of shoulder impingement. 2. A Lateral Raise © YouTube The function of your side delt is to lift your shoulder to the side. Lateral raises are your best bet when it comes to building the side delts. You can pick any method that suits you better and that you enjoy. For example, you could pick any of the following: a. Lateral dumbbell raises b. Lateral cable raises c. Lateral kettlebell raises 3. A Rear Pull © Scott Herman Fitness Isolation exercises beat compounds when it comes to your rear delts. The exercises that help you engage your rear delts the most are: a. Rear flyes on a machine b. Face Pulls Coming to the volume and frequency to build 3D shoulders, here's what the data says: a. A minimum frequency of 2x per week b. 8 to 20 sets per muscle or 80 to 210 reps per muscle group. I would suggest including shoulders in a push-pull-legs or an upper-lower fashion and incorporating exercises for all the three muscle fibres to build 3D shoulders.

  11. The Pulwama terror attack has shaken the entire nation but the ones most affected by the consequences are the ones who lost their loved ones in the attack. Over 40 CRPF jawans were martyred and while everyone can understand the magnitude of the loss, we cannot fathom the endurance that their families have to cope with the death of their lost loved one. © Twitter Major Vibhuti Dhoundiyal, who hailed from Dehradun, lost his life in a recent encounter with terrorists in Pulwama and his mortal remains were brought to his family in his hometown for cremation. It is not the full military honours that he got or the presence of his family that painted a painstaking picture, but the sheer courage that his wife showed to pay him a tribute before his heavenly abode, is what gave us goosebumps. #WATCH Wife of Major VS Dhoundiyal (who lost his life in an encounter in Pulwama yesterday) by his mortal remains. #Dehradun #Uttarakhand pic.twitter.com/5HWD6RXwnO — ANI (@ANI) February 19, 2019 Major Vibhuti's wife Nikita showed nerves of steel as she maintained her calm and whispered 'I love you' to him and gave him a flying kiss, while not shedding a single tear. The couple married last year in April 2018 and Major Vibhuti was bound to return home in April for their first anniversary. Before his remains were cremated, his wife bravely and proudly shouted 'Jain Hind' before breaking down as she cried 'I love you' to her brave husband.

While these visuals will remain etched in our hearts for a long time, we can't help but wonder that we don't know what courage or real bravery is until we have seen someone display it as Nikita did. She is a woman of steel and will continue to inspire us with her undying spirit.
  12. The Pulwama terror attack has been the focal point of all discussions lately, and it is good to see the entire nation joining hands to stand against the perpetrators in its aftermath. Indians from all walks of life have stepped forward to lend a helping hand to the martyrs' families in any way they can. The much-deserved attention, aid and prayers being sent their way is proof that India cannot and will not forget the supreme sacrifice that our soldiers and their families have made for the country and its safety. © Twitter Furthermore, we cannot disregard the sadness and grief that the Indians living outside the country are also sharing at this trying moment. Many NRIs have come forward on social media to express their sadness and anger against the terrorists, and their cowardly tactics to break India's spirit. One such New York-based 26-year-old NRI Vivek Patel deserves a special mention, because not only did he take to social media to condemn the Pulwama attack, but he also raised donations of over 6 crore rupees for the martyred soldiers' kin. © Instagram A Stevens Institute of Technology graduate, Vivek is originally from Vadodara in Gujarat, who was aggrieved by the attack and the devastation it caused to the martyrs' families. He wished to help them in some way and decided to donate through Bharat Ke Veer. But when he realised the initiative does not accept international cards, and the website would even go down due to excessive traffic, he decided to try another alternative. View this post on Instagram Too Strong with all your love and support ðð¼ $700,000 for the families of our 'Shahid's' #pulwamaattack #crpfjawans #crpfindia A post shared by Vivek Patel (@ivivekpatel) on Feb 17, 2019 at 7:22pm PST Still high from his recent viewing of 'Uri', his passion to help drove him to start his own fundraiser on Facebook with a target of $5,00,000. However, as of today, he has managed to exceed the target and raised 858,924 USD within six days with the help of 22,456 people! Vivek has also reached out to the Twitter handles of Bharat Ke Veer, Akshay Kumar, PM Modi, Sushma Swaraj, the Indian Army and others, to ensure that the collected funds can be handed over to the appropriate authority and disbursed to the martyrs' families following all the required protocols. @akshaykumar @adgpi @PMOIndia @narendramodi — Vivek Patel (@ivivekpatel08) February 16, 2019 He has even been in touch with Indian authorities in New York who are guiding Vivek with the best and the safest ways of transferring the funds. Vivek's efforts are commendable and inspiring and we hope he manages to find a way to successfully send across the funds and help the martyred soldiers' families like he set out to.
  13. If there is something sweeter than scoring an extra time winner, it has to be reunions and rivalries. The better part of rivalries turns into controversies whereas reunions are celebrated and cherished. Since exceptions are always there, Luis Figo's hostile welcome at Camp Nou and the boos Angel Di Maria received at Old Trafford, are some of the few examples of the fact that reunions are not always a bed of roses. If you're still not over the 'Pogbrilliance' from last night, here are some thrilling reunions and rivalries to look forward to this week. 1. Tuesday - Liverpool vs Bayern Munich © Bavarian Football Works It cannot get bigger and better than this. Two European giants with 10 Champions League titles between them. Liverpool vs Bayern Munich at Anfield promises to be one of the games of the season. This match will see the reunion between a master and two of his apprentices - Jurgen Klopp and Mats Hummels and Robert Lewandowski. The German coach was responsible for bringing Lewandowski to Bundesliga and Mats Hummels to Borussia Dortmund. After the initial struggle, Klopp turned the Polish hitman into a phenom. He has now scored 193 Bundesliga goals and is just 2 behind the former Bayern Player Claudio Pizarro in terms of 'Most Goals Scored By A Non-German Player.' The former Mainz manager also transformed Hummels into one of the best defenders in the world, forcing Bayern Munich to buy him back from Dortmund. Lewandowski has come back to hurt Klopp on many occasions during latter's time at Die Borussen. It'll be amazing to see Klopp deal with the monsters he created. This match will also see Bayern come face to face with one of their treble winners in Xherdan Shaqiri, who has had an impressive start to the career at Anfield. 2. Wednesday - Atletico Madrid vs Juventus © therahnuma Atletico Madrid versus Juventus will see Cristiano Ronaldo meet his old foes. Currently the second best player in the world, Cristiano will meet Atletico for the first time since his move to Turin. It'll definitely prove to be a 'Clash Of The Titans' when the likes of Ronaldo, Dybala and Douglas Costa will take on Griezmann, Diego Costa and Thomas Lemar. For four years in a row, Ronaldo's Real Madrid ended Atletico's dreams of winning a UEFA Champions League title. Twice, those defeats came in the final of the competition in heartbreaking fashion. Just thinking about the reception he'll receive at Wanda Metropolitano sends chills down our spine. This match will also see Mario Mandzukic come up against his former employers. The Croatian who spent a season in the Spanish capital left after falling out with coach Diego Simeone. In other fixture, Manchester City will see golden boy, Leroy Sane, come up against his boyhood club, FC Schalke 04. Making it a night charged with emotions. 3. Thursday - Arsenal vs BATE Borisov © BBC Thursday will see Arsenal face BATE Borisov in the second leg of UEFA Europa League. To everybody's surprise, the Belarusian club came out on top in the first leg and will have a lead to defend during travel to North-London. What makes this match special is the return of former Arsenal player Alexander Hleb. His name might be the one that comes to mind when you think of the 2006 North-London outfit which came so close to winning the first Champions League trophy in club's history. But it was in Arsenal where the Belarusian played the best football of his career that eventually earned him a £12 million move to Pep Guardiola's Barcelona in the summer of 2008. It'll mark the return of a cult hero. 4. Saturday - Sevilla vs Barcelona © Inquirer In the race to La Liga title, Barcelona will face Sevilla in a tricky away fixture. Tricky because the last time Barca played Sevilla at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium, the home side ran out 2-0 winners in Copa Del Rey, only to be hammered away 6-1 by the Catalan club a week later. Though Barca leads Sevilla by 17 points in the points table, any slip-ups here will allow direct rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid to cut short the lead and pile the pressure on Barcelona. 5. Sunday - Manchester United vs Liverpool © BBC Super Sunday! The final day of this exhausting week full of football will see four of the top six Premier League sides in action. Firstly, it'll be the North-West Derby. With Liverpool coming to Old Trafford and aiming to go on top of the Premier League table, Manchester United will do whatever they can in order to not let that happen. This derby can prove to be the biggest of them all in recent years, with United having a say in Liverpool's title bid. Any result of helping the neighbours Manchester City will be favoured by United faithful in order to disrupt Scousers' title dream. 6. Sunday - Manchester City vs Chelsea © Ronaldo Secondly, after 6-0 drubbing last week, Chelsea will face Manchester City in the English League Cup final at Wembley. After a dismal run of form, Chelsea has slipped to fifth in the Premier League Table. A win here will prove to be a morale booster for London club in an otherwise shambolic season. Manchester City is definite favourites for the final and this could prove to be the first step towards the unprecedented quadruple. Other Fixtures: . Lyon vs Barcelona . Chelsea vs Malmo
  14. Once upon a time, a few centuries ago around 1631 AD, a man decided to make the memory of his wife immortal, and thus the Taj Mahal was created. The monument became emblematic of the love and devotion Shah Jahan felt for his deceased wife Mumtaz Mahal, and over the years the monument turned into the epitome of undying love. But even though things are a lot different today in the 21st century, and especially the way we love and express it has undergone some major transformations since the 17th century of Shah Jahan, some essence has remained the same. © MensXP People continue to fall in love, and though they have even found some of the strangest ways of expressing it, some things, such as a husband's love for his wife and concern about her well being continues to remain a constant through the years. Vikas Bagaria's love for his wife Srijana is proof of one such modern act of love, which may not involve erecting a marble monument for the beloved, but involves launching an entire movement to improve the personal hygiene situation for not only his wife but lakhs of others women too. Who Is Vikas Bagaria © MensXP Born into a family of businessmen, Vikas Bagaria is an entrepreneur and angel investor, who holds a MCA in Electronics from Jadhavpur University, Kolkata. He started his first venture right out of college in 1997, but is better known today as the founder of female personal hygiene spray 'PeeSafe'. However, Vikas has also been an angel investor in over 15 startups so far. The Backstory Vikas often finds himself in the company of men and women who are curious as to why Vikas takes such personal interest in the area of female personal hygiene, and Vikas is quick to establish the moment that gave birth to this venture. “My wife Srijana and I were on a road trip from Gurgaon to Gujarat. But when be reached Ahmedabad, she fell sick and had to be admitted into a hospital. She was diagnosed with acute Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)." © MensXP This diagnosis made the couple look at their entire journey more closely. They had stayed in the best hotels and eaten in the best restaurants, and yet Srijana contracted UTI. This made Vikas realise that clean doesn't mean sanitised, and became a cause of personal concern for him. “This gave us the idea of making a product that could be sprayed on a toilet seat, would kill germs and reduce the chances of UTI all at once for women. That is how PeeSafe came into being when I was looking for new ventures to soothe my investor's impulse.” PeeSafe Then & Now © MensXP There once came a point in Vikas' journey with PeeSafe, when he wanted to go back to his older projects, which were doing well and were professionally managed at the time. He was almost about to sell PeeSafe when his friend Dheeraj Jain came on-board as the co-founder of a new company called Redcliffe Hygiene which now owns PeeSafe. But the biggest challenge were people's mindset. Vikas' friends and relatives simply couldn't wrap their heads around why a man would want to create something related to women's hygiene. But Vikas only had a plain and simple response to that, “why can't men make a product for women? Why can't he for she?” © MensXP Past this initial challenge, PeeSafe is today available at across 3000 stores around India, and the brand has also launched internationally in countries like Nigeria, Singapore, Kenya but now they are planning to go all out and launch production in first world countries too. What's Next The expansion plans are in top gear, and with their hygiene partnership with 'Toilet Ek Prem Katha' and with famous faces like Akshay Kumar and ace shooter Manu Bhaker as their ambassadors, the brand plans to achieve a lot more in the times to come. © MensXP With close to 65 people on and off the ground associated with the brand directly, PeeSafe wants to become “a generic term for female hygiene”. And if there was one piece of advice Vikas could lend to budding entrepreneurs, it's that “keep doing what you are doing, be honest to yourself, be a job provider, that is the biggest satisfaction. And when it comes to funding, don't celebrate funding, celebrate exit because that's where all the money is.” Learn more about the trade secrets and valuable lessons, from the man himself in this video.
  15. Oman Confined to mere 24 against the Mighty Scotland, registering the lowest ever ODI Total © Twitter/@ICC In the world of sports, we witness players and teams achieving new records, shattering the old ones. But sometimes, the same players and teams end up setting unwanted records, owing to disastrous performances. Something similar happened with Oman On Tuesday when they were bowled out for a grand total of mere 24 against Scotland in the first ODI of a three-match bilateral series between the two teams. They thus set the record for the lowest ever ODI total (scroll down for the full list of lowest-ever totals). After losing the toss, Oman were asked to bat first, after which they could just post 24 runs on the board. Out of this two dozen, 15 runs were scored by Khawar Ali, the only player to hit double digits. A total of five players, including both the openers, were bowled out for ducks. © Reuters Adrian Neill and Ruaidhri Smith proved picked four wickets each for Scotland, giving away just 14 runs in total. It was a piece of cake for the Scottish-openers, Matthew Cross and Kyle Coetzer, who wasted little time, and wrapped up the innings in 20 balls, with 10 wickets in hands.

  16. What do you keep in mind before investing in a t-shirt? For a vast majority of men, the most common factors include the right style, fit, colour, and in a number of cases, the cost. If there's one thing that we can say for certain, it's that there are very few men who actually care about the quality of fabric, let alone pay heed to its origin, and how it's cultivated. This is mostly justified, as the world today is fast-paced with everyone hustling to reach places, and longing to accomplish new heights. Amidst the bustling lives that we all lead, being stylish and fashion-forward in itself is a task, and most men are only left with the option (or time!) of throwing a casual tee over a pair of trousers before walking out of their house. Add to this the fact that we lack the hours to even look after our own selves, and having enough time to scour for the best quality clothes may not be feasible to all. On top of it all, expecting one to take care of the environment while picking garments as well, would just be too much of an expectation. While you may not get the time to plant a tree or participate in an environment-friendly drive as an endeavour to protect the environment, there are certain things that you can do that will help you be more eco-friendly, the most effective of them being investing in organic cotton. Organic cotton is the type of cotton which is farmed without the use of any chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or insecticides, which in turn prevents environmental degradation, and at the same time, enhances biodiversity. A number of brands today are committed to promoting organic cotton production, and make use of the purest variety for curating a range of clothing articles, including t-shirts, trousers, and innerwear. Now, considering the fact that a t-shirt makes for the quintessential component of any man's wardrobe, and to help you be more environment-friendly, we have compiled this list of the best organic cotton t-shirts that you must stock your wardrobe with: 1.

  19. In what turned out to be one of the deadliest terror strikes in recent times, a 20-year-old suicide bomber from Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) sent India and a billion citizens into a state of mourning after carrying out a ghastly strike that led to the demise of more than 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans in the Awantipora town of the Pulwama district, on 14th February 2019. While the horrendous attack has disrupted peace in the country, at the same time, it has united India against the common evil of terrorism. Amid the ever-growing calls for revenge, there has been continuous support for the grieving families who lost their loved ones in Pulwama. While Amitabh Bachchan has announced a donation of Rs 5 lakh each for the families of the slain CRPF jawans, Virender Sehwag offered educational support to their children. Joining the burgeoning list of benefactors, Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan also came forward to aid the troubled families as a mark of respect for the Indian soldiers. Taking to Facebook, Dhawan shared an emotional video where he was seen praising the CRPF martyrs for laying down their lives for the country. He also vowed to make a donation for the victims and their families while urging others to join the humanitarian cause. Apart from Dhawan, Faiz Fazal-led Vidarbha also made a heartfelt gesture towards the families of the martyrs by donating their prize money after winning the Irani Cup following their triumph over Rest of India.

  21. While it's safe to say that an average man is most likely to sport a printed shirt just on a tropical getaway, a recent trend boost may make you think twice. Over the last couple of years, prints on men have been making their way to the mainstream fashion world. Ranveer Singh may be the king of prints, but that doesn't mean prints have to be as maximal as he is. As more and more men embrace this trend, there is a whole world of possibilities emerging with this look. Prints can add a whole new level of edge and make your basic outfit exciting. Here's a definitive guide on what pants to wear with all kinds of printed shirts: 1. Minimal Print © instagram @vickykaushal09 Not all prints have to draw attention, you can go classic with paisley, gingham or polka dots. A printed shirt can even elevate a basic jeans and sneakers look, if styled well. If you're opting for print for the first time, go easy on the colour scheme. © instagram @ishabhansali Keeping it monotone and building your outfit around one colour is advisable. Keep the accessories and layers basic with either black or brown when it comes to formal wear. For casual, a basic white or black jacket and white sneakers should do your outfit justice in the most minimal way possible. 2. Hawaiian Print © instagram @diljitdosanjh Just because Hawaiian shirts are associated with being on a holiday doesn't mean these babies can't be rocked all-year round. As prints go for a modern upgrade, so do the age-old classics. Major fashion houses took a spin on Hawaiian shirts in grown-up colour schemes of black, forest green, and sand offset by pops of colour making it super trendy. © instagram @naheedee Choose a Hawaiian shirt in a slim cut, contrary to the older boxier version for a more structured fit. Pair your shirt with chinos and oxford boots for a spin on casual Friday or well-fitted jeans and sneakers for a relaxed fit. Evoke holiday vibes all through the year! 3. Floral Print © instagram @vickykaushal09 Not everyone dares to pull off this supposedly 'feminine' print, but it's 2019 and we need to get over these outdated gender norms for good. One can rock a floral printed shirt with a pair of rugged denims or shorts and sneakers for a casual brunch look or pair it with a solid coloured suit for understated elegance. © grazia If you can't find any other way to pair your floral shirt, black jeans will be your saviour. It's also important to pair the textures right in terms of look and feel. For example, a shiny or leather bottom won't flatter a cotton dress shirt. Go for a smaller print size or minimal colour scheme if you are a little hesitant to wear bright florals. Your style will blossom, anyway! 4. Animal Print © viral bhayani When we say animal print, Ranveer Singh's all leopard print suit comes to mind, doesn't it? As daring as it was, pulling off animal print doesn't have to be a very difficult task. Considering that these animal prints are super bold, it's best to keep the rest of your outfit understated. Sticking to basic silhouettes and pieces like chinos, classic denims and blazers are key to make your shirt the centre of attention. © instagram @ishabhansali For an understated yet classy way to pull off animal print, opt for monotone prints like zebra and pair with bold solid coloured separates. This contrast will definitely act as a welcome change from your usual take on animal print, which mostly involves warmer tones. Now go out there and rock prints like a pro!
  22. Try tossing any idea or concept towards Amul and you can trust them to blow your minds away with their creativity. Time and again they have proved why people love their creative side more than their butter. Recently, they won or should we say cried together with millions of hearts, by paying homage to the CRPF jawans martyred in the deadly Pulwama terror attack. Earlier, they paid tribute to Vicky Kaushal's 'Uri' by showing everyone the 'Makhan Ka Josh'. #Amul Topical: Homage to our CRPF martyrs... pic.twitter.com/Q6mEl3eV7I — Amul.coop (@Amul_Coop) February 15, 2019 Now, Amul has won praises from people for their take on Ranveer Singh's blockbuster movie 'Gully Boy'. The illustration shows Alia, Ranveer and Siddhant's characters posing with butter and a slice of bread in their hands. Amul's version of 'Apna Time Aayega' is the only anthem that matter for every foodie out there - 'Apna Time Hai...Khayega!" #Amul Topical: Film 'Gully Boy' connects with audiences! pic.twitter.com/hWiGIatQ7E — Amul.coop (@Amul_Coop) February 18, 2019 Alia Bhatt even posted about the same on social media. Even before its release, 'Gully Boy' had blockbuster written all over it and now that it has hit the theatres, the movie has lived up to the expectations quite well. Apart from Ranveer Singh, people are also loving the performances of Alia Bhatt, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Vijay Raaz and Vijay Varma in this movie directed by Zoya Akhtar.
  23. A great leader, fantastic centre-back and undisputed talisman at Santiago Bernabeu, Sergio Ramos has been one of the vital cogs in Real Madrid's set-up over the years. His popularity is second to none which also explains the hefty paycheck he draws every week. But, while the Madridistas hail him as their true leader, Ramos has a side which, every now and then, overshadows his performance. Deliberate or not, his arm-tackle against Mohammed Salah during the UEFA Champions League final against Liverpool last season had caused a huge backlash amongst the football fans across the globe. For the Madrid skipper, it seems, winning - not just the game, but every single tackle - is everything. And, those who've seen him in action would agree that the Spaniard doesn't mind getting his hands a little dirty, quite literally on many occasions. © Reuters And, Los Blancos' recent La Liga encounter against Girona was a testimony to that. If Madrid' 1-2 loss to the least-favoured club came as a surprise, Ramos' red card in the 90th minute further spelt their doom. The Madrid centre-back was given a yellow card for a handball inside the box which resulted in a penalty for the visitors in the 64th minute. After 20 minutes of levelling the game, Girona got in front through a beautiful strike from Portu. And, with the hosts trailing by a goal, the home fans were handed another blow in the 90th minute when Ramos was handed his second yellow card for kicking Girona's Cristhian Stuani in another bad and unwanted foul. © Reuters Owing to his red card, Ramos etched his name in the history books for a La Liga record that he wouldn't be able to forget anytime soon. Thanks to his latest antics, Ramos now has 20 red cards to his name in the Spanish league - most by any footballer in La Liga. He also became the only player for Real Madrid to receive 25 red cards in his career so far. If his red card left Real Madrid frustrated, Ramos' comments after the game further showed his flawed understanding of the game. "Looking at the result, I'd be lying if I said I didn't force, it is not to underestimate the opponent nor to think that the series is over, but in football, you have to make tough decisions," the Real Madrid captain said.

  24. As expected from raging Bollywood star Ranveer Singh with his mega popularity and talent, 'Gully Boy' has shot through the roof with its killer, entertainment-packed delivery over the weekend. An HT report states that the Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer has already bagged a box office collection of a whopping Rs 71 crore (approximately) in merely four days of hitting the theatres! (c) Instagram Given the growing craze around the film, we also recently witnessed Will Smith praising Ranveer's acting in the film and the hip-hop rap culture that 'Gully Boy' is based on, as he took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the same. “ Yo Ranveer congrats man I am loving what you're doing with Gullyboy for me old school hip hop here seeing hip hop all over the world like that I am loving it man congrats “ - Will Smith to Ranveer Singh - OMGGGG!!!!! ð♥ï¸♥ï¸ pic.twitter.com/AzZWjDmZLk — RanveerSingh TBTð (@RanveerSinghtbt) February 16, 2019 Fans went crazy when they saw the 'Pursuit of Happyness' star shower the 'Simmba' actor with praises, but what's even cooler is Ranveer's excited reply to Will Smith, referring to him as “big brother” or “bade bhai” and thanking him for his “bahut hard” support. (c) Instagram The two had partied together when Will was in India last October for the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit and have been in touch since, and it was good to see Will lend his support to Ranveer. It was also reported that Will had shot a dance number for Karan Johar's 'Student Of The Year 2' following social media pictures showing the trio together. However, Will and Ranveer's virtual exchange has sparked hopes in the hearts of their fans to see the pair spill their magic on-screen as well. Their chemistry is sure to dole out an absolute blockbuster, no matter which industry that manages to pull it off.

  25. It was the NBA All-Star weekend and the biggest basketball fans from all over the world got together to celebrate the greatest talents of the game in Charlotte, North Carolina. Spread out in three days, the All-Star weekend consisted of some major contests including the Rising Star Challenge and the Three-Point Contest. However, the biggest 'wow' moment came during the Slam Dunk Contest which was held between the most athletic high-flyers of the NBA, with the likes of Miles Bridges, Hamidou Diallo and Dennis Smith Jr. taking the stage. While other dunkers brought in a lot of props to the show, it was Diallo's decision to keep it simple and amaze the people sitting inside the stadium and around the world with just one man alongside him, the 4x NBA champion and a 7-foot-1 giant, Shaquille O'Neal. When Diallo was setting up Shaq in front of the ring, nobody believed that the 6'5'' tall Oklahoma City Thunder rookie would be able to jump over O'Neal, let alone dunk the ball. But to all those who slept on Diallo's superhuman jumping abilities, he shocked them with a thunderous slammer as he not only leapt over Shaq but also ended with a solid 'Honey Dip' dunk, hanging on the rim from his elbow with half his arm inside the bucket while showing off the Superman sign on his chest. Nobody, not even Shaq could believe what he had just witnessed. The announcers didn't even know how to react to something as otherworldly as Diallo's slam. Obviously, the judges gave the OKC rookie top marks. Diallo ended up winning the contest in his All-Star weekend debut as he edged over New York's Dennis Smith Jr in the final round with a windmill dunk over American rapper, Quavo.
