  1. The unfortunate news of Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan being ruled out of the ICC World Cup 2019 due to a fractured left thumb has left a huge hole at the top of the Indian batting lineup. Although, in the match against Pakistan, we did see KL Rahul step up to the occasion and form a great 100-run plus opening partnership, the void of the veteran lefty batsman is definitely going to be the most difficult to fill. Dhawan went down with the injury like a warrior. Having the base of his left thumb cracked, thanks to a deadly bouncer by Pat Cummins early on in the match between India and Australia at The Oval in London, the left-handed batsman went on to play a massive innings worth 117 runs, that not only made him the 'Man of the Match' but also led Team India to win one of the more challenging games of the ongoing tournament. View this post on Instagram ð¸ð¸ð®ð³ #TeamIndia A post shared by Team India (@indiancricketteam) on Jun 9, 2019 at 5:04am PDT The exit of the southpaw from the world championship got the team selectors in a bit of a fix, as they had to choose between an experienced and sturdy batsman in Ambati Rayudu and zealous and explosive Rishabh Pant. The management decided to go with the latter with the hopes of providing a fresh boost to the middle order. It is well documented that the only problem with Team India, is the weak and struggling middle order. Before the World Cup began, it was still being managed by former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni but even the Ranchi-born seems to have lost his form off-late. Whenever India have tasted success while batting in either of the innings, it only comes if the batting partnership in the initial stages of the match is formed. Rohit Sharma and Dhawan have been doing it for years and on Sunday, Sharma and Rahul did it as well. View this post on Instagram HITMAN ðð #TeamIndia A post shared by Team India (@indiancricketteam) on Jun 16, 2019 at 4:40am PDT However with some good games against teams with brilliant bowlers like England and West Indies still ahead of them, we can't be certain of a solid opening partnership, especially due to the lack of experience of Sharma and Rahul playing together at number one and two spots, which, by the way, was also evident during their previous fleet against Sarfaraz Ahmed's men. Under such conditions, Rishabh Pant, who would most probably take the crease as the fourth batsman after Virat Kohli, will be expected to take the lead and put up big numbers on the scoreboard for his side. An extremely skilled and talented batsman who is a natural hitter, Pant played his last ODI match against Australia on 13th March during which he found himself to be cheaply dismissed (16 runs) at the hands of Nathan Lyon in a losing effort. The 21-year-old has been put under the microscope and criticised for his inability to stick to the crease for long and play a 50-over innings. So, when Pant is being brought in to play on the biggest platform there is in international cricket with such little experience, the amount of pressure on his young shoulders has to be immense. View this post on Instagram Donning the blue for the nation is a feeling nothing else can even come close to ðð» Wishing Team India a killer run to the ð Bring it home boys !! Good luck ðªð» ð®ð³ @indiancricketteam #jaihind A post shared by Rishabh Pant (@rishabpant) on May 28, 2019 at 4:50am PDT But this is the situation that makes or breaks a player and whenever it is that the Roorkee-born will play for India, be it against Afghanistan on 22nd June or the Windies on 27th June, it will only be his determination and the sheer will to be great, that will guide his performance on the ground. Here's hoping all the success that Pant deserves and should get this World Cup.
  2. It's summer and Peter Parker has decided to go on vacation, telling us that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is definitely far from being over. The social media embargo on reviews of 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' has been lifted and the feedback is as bright as a positive ray of light. Disney is definitely confident about what about the film director, Jon Watts has made and the reactions talk about its humour, action and a few major twists. Although the movie is set to release on July 5, the press screenings have started and we can't wait to catch the new Spidey flick. © Sony Pictures Releasing Marvel and Disney have always made it a point to lift embargos on movies way before their release to get a positive word of mouth in advance and this time was no different. According to the trailer, this one has Peter Parker aka Spider-Man taking a vacation in Europe with his classmates. However, he runs into Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) or rather he's hunted down by Fury and the mysterious Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) aka Quentin Beck to help defeat some apolyptic 'Elemental' monster! © Sony Pictures Releasing Some are calling the film a perfect 'Avengers: Endgame' epilogue where the MCU goes on an emotionally fulfilling ride, while some say it's the best Spidey movie yet. Let's see what the critics have to say about 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' FAR FROM HOME has dethroned Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 & is now favorite Spider-Man film. What's insane is that I can't even tell u why I'm so in love with this film because it would be a spoiler. Gyllenhaal is incredible. Holland re-confirms as the best Spidey to date. Amazing. pic.twitter.com/pbynxYIEyQ — Kevin McCarthy (@KevinMcCarthyTV) 19 June 2019 I didn't expect to laugh so hard at a movie that deals with the emotional and global fallout of Avengers: Endgame. I really, really enjoyed #SpiderManFarFromeHome (liked it a smidge more than Homecoming), and thought it absolutely succeeded when it dealt with human-scale stories. pic.twitter.com/Cy985w2NeV — Terri Schwartz (@Terri_Schwartz) 19 June 2019 I had a big dumb smile on my face through all of #SpiderManFarFromHome. It makes for a lovely companion piece to Endgame, but it's also a top-notch Peter story. Oh, and Jake Gyllenhaal is clearly having the time of his LIFE. — Devan Coggan (@devancoggan) 19 June 2019 #SpiderManFarFromHome isn't quite as wonderful as Homecoming, but it's a really strong, endearing sequel that delivers some excellent moments in its second half in particular. It commendably furthers Peter's story while laying groundwork for what's next in a notably deft way. — Eric Goldman (@TheEricGoldman) 19 June 2019 I saw Spider-Man: Far From Home last night - it's pretty much the perfect Avengers: Endgame epilogue - reminding us that the MCU goes on in a joyous, emotionally fulfilling ride. #SpiderManFarFromHome — Sean Keane (@SpectacularSean) 19 June 2019 #SpiderMan #FarFromHome is an absolute home run. It's SO much fun. It's huge in itself and for the future of the MCU in the most surprising ways. Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, just a lethal, awesome combo!! I cannot wait to see this movie again. And again. pic.twitter.com/0hYJvKkdjN — Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) 19 June 2019 I can't stress this enough: stay all the way through the credits for #FarFromHome!!! There's a couple of brilliant sequences waiting for you! Dodge #SpiderMan spoilers as best you can!! pic.twitter.com/vhiJcMwzF1 — Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) 19 June 2019 Absolutely loved SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME. I'm a huge Mysterio fan and Gyllenhaal nails him. Also the movie is very clever (and funny) how it handles the fallout post ENDGAME in explaining how this world works now. — Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) 19 June 2019 Didn't LOVE #SpiderManFarFromHome as much as Homecoming but it's still a rad take on bearing the weight of great expectations and a fun ode to teen romance. Tom Holland continues to be amazing, Zendaya's MJ is just as cool as Shuri and Jake G's an inspired choice for Mysterio. pic.twitter.com/nnu7BPjcFO — Brian Truitt (@briantruitt) 19 June 2019 #FarFromHome non spoiler thoughts: most comic booky movie marvel has put out. Second and third acts are outstanding. The two post credit sequences are going to stick in my brain for a L O N G time. I cannot wait to see this movie at least three more times. — Preeti Chhibber (@runwithskizzers) 19 June 2019 #Spiderman #FarFromHome is SUCH a good movie! Jake Gyllenhaal suits up & completely embraces his role in its entirety & he's clearly having a blast. This is such a refreshing film after the heaviness of #EndGame. The post-credit scenes are a MUST WATCH & will blow your dang mind! pic.twitter.com/wcTh9iHaYq — Maude Garrett (@maudegarrett) 19 June 2019 Spider-Man: Far from Home is an extremely fun, cleverly executed, and frequently hilarious culmination of the MCU's wall-crawler's journey so far. Some very sweet moments, sly commentary and deft action set-pieces throughout #SpiderManFarFromHome pic.twitter.com/5sAmxh4E3p — Jim Vejvoda (@JimVejvoda) 19 June 2019 #SpiderManFarFromHome had the difficult task of following two epic Avengers movies AND Spider-Verse and succeeds by telling a smaller, classical story about Peter Parker caught between what he wants and what responsibility demands. Pure cat(spider)nip for Spidey fans like me. pic.twitter.com/G2a4p6YhAr — Matt Singer (@mattsinger) 19 June 2019 I love that #SpiderManFarFromHome is all sleight-of-hand. It begs to be seen multiple times. pic.twitter.com/nwIX24L8WH — Jason Guerrasio (@JasonGuerrasio) 19 June 2019 absolutely loved #SpiderManFarFromHome. Captures the spirit of the comics and mixes in some amazing movie magic. The second the film ended I wanted to watch it again. #JakeGyllenhaal is fantastic as Mysterio. pic.twitter.com/4ZYaS0L8mf — Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) 19 June 2019 #SpiderManFarFromHome is the coda we needed after Endgame, a glimpse of how the world looks now that the dust has settled. Could maybe have gone a bit harder on P's emotional arc, but bursting with warmth and humor and awkward teen romance. ð Also: Jake G = perfect casting. — Angie J. Han (@ajhan) 19 June 2019 #SpiderManFarFromHome: B-/C+. If you loved the teen-centric stuff in Homecoming, there's more where that came from. Some of the comedy falls flat, but this film has A LOT going on – ultimately beneficial because it mostly distracts from stuff that doesn't land quite as well. pic.twitter.com/1wVMyT5bv9 — Ben Pearson (@benpears) 19 June 2019 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' is a refreshingly light-hearted adventure after the somber intensity of Avengers: Endgame, delivering exactly the kind of wise-cracking antics we've come to expect from Tom Holland's Peter Parker. - @jacobkleinman pic.twitter.com/EWik8F9VUr — Inverse (@inversedotcom) 19 June 2019 A lot of critics praised the film, saying it didn't disappoint them at all, as you can see above from the reactions. They all concurred that MCU has the most amazing ways to surprise their fans. There were also praises for how the film carved it's story post 'Avengers: Endgame' ending, and how the characters react to Iron Man aka Tony Starks death. There's a lot of mention of that towards the film's climactic action scene and several critics have mentioned that one may want to watch it over and over, just for that remarkable twist, towards the end. The film will conclude the third phase of the MCU, post which new characters will be introduced into the series, in all probability. So, get your Spidey game on and get ready to witness an excellent movie (as told by the critics) on July 5.
  3. Apple has been known for adding tools that benefit a user's health ever since the company launched the Health App with iOS 8. The company has doubled down on the same ethos with the introduction of the Apple Watch. The smartwatch has some nifty features that have been responsible for saving countless lives in the past. Now with iOS 13, Apple is introducing a new feature in the health app that lets users track the headphone volume. It works with Bluetooth headsets (MFi) and the health app will let users know if the volume of the music is too high. © Pexels This feature was not showcased at WWDC 2019 however we got a small preview of the upcoming feature. The health app on iOS devices will now be able to track volume levels and suggest users if the volume is too high and might damage their ears. Apple will use the prescribed WHO levels to determine if the volume levels are loud or not. According to WHO, sounds above the level of 85db is harmful to the ear which is also the same parameter set by Apple in the 'Health' app. Any volume levels lower than 85db is usually ok however previous research has suggested that prolonged exposure to sound levels below 85db can also be harmful to the human ear. What Can Be Improved? © MensXP From what we saw from the demo, the new feature doesn't entirely work as expected. Even though you can track your volume levels from a previous listening session in the Health app, there is no provision for listeners when they are actually listening to audio at high volume levels. The 'Health' app as of now does not notify users about potential ear damage when they are listening to loud music. You will have to manually check levels each time by going into the 'Health' app which can be a bit tedious if you really care about protecting your ears. © Apple It would have been useful if the 'Health' app would notify you if you are listening to music louder than the recommenced volume level when you're actually doing it rather than later. For example, if a user is listening to music louder than 85db for more than 30 minutes, the Health app could simply notify users with a warning. Of course, many audiophiles would find this notification annoying if it keeps coming up every 15 or 30 minutes, which is why Apple should also provide the option of turning this specific notification off or give the ability to mute it for an hour. Personally, I would like to get a warning while I'm listening to loud music, not after the damage is already done.
  4. Apple's iMessage service, as we all know, is what has been keeping iOS users glued together and making them stick to the Apple ecosystem. Like, seriously. It's insane to think how a messaging service is making people remain loyal to an OS. Well, it looks like Google is finally ready to lock horns with Apple. Yes, Google is bringing its version of iMessage to Android. Users in the UK and France with Android phones will be able to opt into the new texting service called 'Chat'. © Reuters The concept of 'Chat' and 'RCS' protocol on which Chat itself is based on, is more complex than you can imagine. But in simple terms, Android Chat can be seen as an easier way to text. Much like iMessage, users will be able to see read receipts and ellipsis symbols when people type, and more. You'll also be able to send and receive high-resolution images and videos, and it all happens through either cellular data or Wi-Fi. It's going to be great, and we really can't wait for the service to expand to more countries and eventually make its way to India too. © Reuters We're not entirely sure how messaging platforms like WhatsApp and others will react to the arrival of Chat on Android. After all, this new texting service has the potential to steal the show from WhatsApp and others. But we think it's still too early to tell how it'll be received across different parts of the world. Google, in case you didn't know, has been working on an Android version of iMessage for a long time now. In fact, RCS was created all the way back in 2007 to replace SMS, but sadly the carriers didn't really show a lot of interest at that time. Now let's hope things work out in favour of Google and we finally have an iMessage equivalent on Android.

  6. There's a reason why a dog is a man or a woman's best friend. They're the actual healers we need in our lives and if times are not so good for us, they know how to make us feel better for sure. Don't believe me? Well, Hank the dog certainly did something extraordinary for his owner and the Twitter user recently shared his story with the internet , and it truly melted our hearts. This story surely teaches us to be patient with our pets, as they might do things to annoy us but will also do heroic things to compensate for their bad behaviour. So, we really shouldn't be too quick to punish them. © Twitter So, if you have a dog and he or she is up to some mischief, always resign to the fact that they will act intelligently when they really need to, if they have to save your life. Dogs are quite clairvoyant like that. Ever noticed, if you're sad or low, they usually come sit next to you, and you feel better? That's because they figure you're sad and they come to cheer you up, kinda like saving your life, isn't it? Well, Hank actually did save his owners' life, even after getting a scolding. So, if you have a dog, give them all the love they deserve and yes, make sure you have some fire-fighting apparatus at home, always. People online really loved the story and vouched for more show-chewing days for Hank!
  7. As the ICC World Cup 2019 continues to progress despite the ruthless rains of England taking away half the fun from the quadrennial tournament this year, the Australian cricket team must find solace in the fact that they are currently atop the points table of the Cricket World Cup. The reigning world champions have won all but one of the five matches that they have played during the ongoing round-robin contest and surprisingly be lucky when it comes to no downpours during their time on the field. Their one loss in the initial five games came at the hands of the World Cup favourites, the Indian cricket team, which thanks to a brilliant ton by Shikhar Dhawan, were off to a great start and ended up tallying a massive 352, a total that turned out to be too much for the cricketers from Down Under to keep up with. ð¯ for Shikhar Dhawan! ð What a knock this has been for India! #INDvAUS LIVE ð https://t.co/tdWyb7lIw6 pic.twitter.com/BBVFxYcKH5 — ICC (@ICC) June 9, 2019 The match however was not talked about because of Gabbar's masterful 117-run innings. It rather became the talk of the town because of the audience calling out the former Australian skipper, Steve Smith for what he did one year ago. That's right, the crowd which was extremely hostile towards Team India's southernmost rivals, tried to rile up Smith with the chants of “cheater, cheater”, referring to the infamous sandpaper-gate during a Test series against South Africa in March 2018. Smith, who was captaining the Australian side back then alongside David Warner as his vice-captain, was suspended from international cricket for one whole year as punishment. I would give anything to have this behind me and be back representing my country. But I meant what I said about taking full responsibility as Captain of the team. I won't be challenging the sanctions. They've been imposed by CA to send a strong message and I have accepted them. — Steve Smith (@stevesmith49) April 4, 2018 Caring for his opponent, Kohli, who was on strike when the chants began, decided to reach out to the crowd, stopped them from defaming the talented Australian cricketer and instead asked them to cheer for him. With India fans giving Steve Smith a tough time fielding in the deep, @imVkohli suggested they applaud the Australian instead. Absolute class ð #SpiritOfCricket #ViratKohli pic.twitter.com/mmkLoedxjr — ICC (@ICC) June 9, 2019 “If I was in a position where something had happened with me, and I'd apologised and accepted it, and came back and still I would get booed, I wouldn't like it either,” the Indian skipper said in the post-match press conference. Steve Smith's comments about Virat Kohli's wonderful gesture towards him recently came to the fore when his side defeated Dimuth Karunaratne's Sri Lankan team by a huge 87-run margin on Saturday. During the post-match conference Smith said: “It was a lovely gesture by Virat." "It doesn't really bother me what the crowds do to be perfectly honest. I am just blocking it all out but it was a lovely gesture from him," he added. © Twitter Stepping into the field with one of the most competitive minds in all of sports, Virat Kohli understands where Smith was coming from. What he had done one year ago, he regrets truly. His deeds had brought his country shame and he realises that. Even though the 30-year-old claims that he shuts his mind off to the crowds, not getting bothered by something toxic feels highly unlikely. What is great to see is that Smith seems to be finding his form back. The Oval saw the cricketer score big (73 off 59 balls) alongside skipper Aaron Finch's game-winning 153-run stint on the pitch. It is always great to see a brilliant player make a comeback, especially when he has paid for his sins in full and has an entire nation and a couple of friends backing him up.
  8. Even though Father's Day is a self-made fraction of recognising the true essence of fatherhood, it's still a day to celebrate the most fundamental relationship people share. Father's Day is a day where you remember the one person in your life who changed your world around just by their endurance towards giving you the best life. But Father's Day isn't just about biological 'fathers', to be fair. It's solemnly about a father-figure, who gives you determination and courage to face life's worst challenges and come out as a winner. Men who take a stand to become a guiding light for someone and be their voice of reason also deserve a fair chance of being acknowledged this Father's Day. (c)Facebook We have someone amidst us, who gave up so-called an idealistic career like being a doctor, engineer or even a businessman, in life to become a father-figure to hundreds of slum kids who needed direction and inherent care. Murphy Raphael John nurtures and takes care of children from the slum, through his trust 'Reach Out and Pass It On' and this Father's Day, let's celebrate the work he has put in to raising numerous kids, with proper education and much-needed life skills and making them stand tall and proud on their own two feet. (c)Facebook 'Reach It Out and Pass It On' believes in empowering people just so they can empower others in the future. Murphy had never planned on doing this as a profession or even recreationally, but according to him, some things choose you and you have to go along with them. When he was in college he was actively involved in activities concerning Church Youth, a service orientated wing of the church and he used to spend a lot of time actively volunteering for various social causes. Amongst various efforts that were being made by young people, interacting with a bunch of kids, from the nearest slums was one of them. "I always wanted to start this as a project with members from the Church Youth, but no one seemed interested. One day someone told me to stop waiting for people to come and do something on my own instead. And whoever has to come, will follow. At first it was scary, but I had a bunch of friends helping me out and we decided to do this once a week. We spent a lot of time with these kids in Central Delhi, who would sit next to the Gurudwara and the Church, and from there on everything has been very evolutionary in nature. A situation came in front, and a solution to it was our next step. We started playing, teaching and spending quality time with these kids, everyday" - said Murphy, over a conversation with him. (c)Facebook From thereon, after recognising what these kids really needed, things began to spiral and become bigger. At that point Murphy or his friends hadn't thought about bringing this initiative under an umbrella or a name. They would all go spend time with them, whenever they found time and have conversations with them, like they were family. Even though Murphy's friends would visit the children sporadically, Murphy made it a point to spend a few hours with them, every day. The kids in turn loved their mentors and would come every day to meet Murphy and his friends. They would indulge in conversations about life and the universe, mental math, logical reasoning, life skills and eating healthy food. After realising the seriousness of how Murphy is impacting lives, he began to think of this project more seriously. During the monsoons, Murphy approached a school nearby to give these kids shelter while they would spend time with their mentors and when the school agreed, on an autopilot, the kids started attaining proper education, as they all got enrolled in to the school. (c)Facebook "We had a classroom in the school nearby and studies for these kids started. But obviously the kids never looked forward to studying, so they started running away. Which made me realise over time that street kids came to us because they got something from us, which they hadn't ever received from anyone else. They got human companionship, they got friendship, they got someone to play with them and of course their need was survival and because I was 20-years-old at the time, I could not give them that. So, I did what I thought was best. I approached the nearest slum, where these kids belonged and that's when our next phase started, where we started working with the slums." (c)Facebook Over time, Murphy and his team shifted to the slums and started working with the kids there. There were kids from the ages of 5 till 20, who were deeply engrossed in Murphy's teaching mechanism. Towards the end of 2010, the slum Murphy was working with got demolished without a notice that was given to the slum dwellers, so a lot of families were displaced and hadn't been rehabilitated. In such a dire time, Murphy would assemble as many children from the slums as he could and take them to a night shelter, and spend nights with them there, in harsh winters. "Whatever money we had collected we would buy food at night and feed them, while take the children to night shelters, after seeking permission from their parents. I definitely did not give up on the slum that was demolished as I had formed a bond with the families there. As a youth, one is more fiery and driven and I kept thinking we need to do something more for these kids. And that's where the idea of starting a centre came to me. We got a place on rent, after much difficulty. We managed to find a room and in a very small space, 25 kids and I shifted in." (c)Facebook Even though Murphy found a temporary set-up for the kids, he used the opportunity to help them, to the hilt and made sure, he helped them with their upcoming examinations. Apart from mentoring them for their exams, Murphy also taught them other life skills like cooking, cleaning, washing utensils and clothes, etc. Murphy realised that if he had to sustain this arrangement, to help these children out, he would need some form of funding and that's where, permanency started making sense to him. He realised in order to get donations and funding, he would need to register this ensemble as a trust, and that's when 'Reach Out and Pass It On' was born. "The set up was temporary, but the kids and I were so attached, we didn't want to give up on it. They decided that a bigger place would make sense and with the help of few donations, we shifted to a bigger centre in Patel Nagar, and we stayed put there for the next two-and-a-half-years. The kids would go to school, we would have lunch, they would study and then I would give them money to go back home. But the kids would tell me 'Bhaiya we travel so much, we don't have time to do homework and we can't study at home', so they started staying back with me twice a week, sometimes three times a week and eventually they started staying with me every day and I was like listen your parents will kill me. So then they started going back home once a week." (c)Facebook Everything was just a beautiful evolution for these kids and for Murphy as well. In 2013, the centre was shifted from Patel Nagar to Ramesh Nagar and they have been there for the past 7 years now. When the centre shifted, they approached another slum nearby and kids started coming from there to be a part of this beautiful journey. Today, the centre hosts about 100 children from two different slums, who come and imbibe some life skill training and learn to be better human beings. Reach out and Pass it On's main focus is overall development. They provide means for opportunity and whatever opportunity that can help a child with development and growth. They had a need for education, so they provided education through people who would volunteer to come and teach at the centre. They needed space to learn and grow, so a space was taken up, to accommodate everyone. A lot of kids have talent, so the centre found ways to befit that by enrolling kids in crafts, music, dance, sports, cooking and baking, etc. Workshops are conducted on health and hygiene, personality development and values. "We don't want to just create educated people. We want to create good people. We don't want just literacy, but people who have a sane head on their shoulders. and that's what the name 'Reach Out and Pass it On' means. Whatever you learn you need to pass it on. You can't just hoard it for yourself. So, if you built people to be capable and confident, then they will find their way in life." (c)Facebook The children come to the centre at the age of 10-11 and they are there till they go to college. When they reach grade 12th, they're given the option of either leaving the centre or staying. The ones who stay are the ones who volunteer and pass on their leanings to younger children in the centre. They're also involved with the running of the centre, by helping with daily accounts and the upkeep of the centre, which is a beautiful practice to actually pay it forward. We seldom indulge in paying back what we've truly learnt from the world and that's what Reach Out and Pass It On emphasises on. ''My first batch of kids, one girl did her English honours and now is a choreographer at Danceworx. I had two boys who completed their sociology honours. One gave a bank exam for Axis and got a placement there. The other one did his masters in social design and he will soon be graduating and getting a job in the social development sector. One of the students did economic honours and is now preparing for government exams." (c)Facebook The organisation does a lot of fundraising and purely sustains itself through donations and charitable events. They have been receiving funds through these means since the longest time and they've done well for themselves so far. So, in case you're looking for a good charity or a trust to donate to, Reach Out and Pass it On is an ideal choice. Murphy has formed an incredible and inevitable circuit of 'doers', who pass on the good in them, to help other people perceive it and on Father's Day, all we can learn from this is the true meaning of gratitude and solidarity, along with a lot of trust and fun. Murphy has been a guiding light for several kids on the streets and it's time to learn something from his experience and impart it to people who really need to be shown and given a direction. (c)Facebook ''Parenting is a full time job. I've put the wheel in motion. Children come, they're with us. They learn various things and then they choose a path. I try my level best to find a path best suited to these kids and give them an option of what they like to do. Eventually I want them to grow up to be good people, be a part of the world and make friends. This is my sole aim for these children," Murphy signed off.
  9. We know them as fathers, but they go by a gazillion other names. Some of us call them 'dad', while others refer to them as 'papa', 'baba', 'pops', and 'daddy', besides myriad other endearments. But no matter which name we use and how we choose to call out to them, our fathers continue to be our greatest heroes - one of our greatest joys and pride. What is it about them though, which makes us feel a thousand times better the instant we know they are looking out for us and have our back? Why is it that a mere question from them regarding our well-being eases any discomfort in our lives and their words do wonders to boost our confidence and outlook towards life? (c) Getty Images Is it the backhanded compliments they pass on from time to time, or the fact that they never seem to think twice before making us - their stubborn, sassy kids - the centre of their world? The unsaid sacrifices our parents happily make for us, and all the forgiveness that comes so easily to them (no matter how many times we mess things up or how badly), and the way they are always so quick to love us, pick us up when we fall, and thrash our ass red when we are out of line. Yet, it is somehow always their silent support, selfless affection and care that helps us stay afloat through a ton of shit life throws our way. That's how it is for most of us out there. Surely, not always one of the most simple, but surely one of the strongest bonds we share is between a father and his child. (c) Getty Images However, did you imagine what it would feel like to have all that taken away from you because the society cannot understand who you are and sympathise with your reality? When a father is cornered by unknown faces of judgements and social castration which provokes him to question his own child and the bond they share? That is exactly what happened when Dr. Meera Parida and Meghna Sahoo's family found out they were transgenders. Suddenly their loving fathers would not look at them in the same light and the affection receded to pure detestation. Not being able to live with such a tremendous change in their relationship, Meera left her home and Meghna was asked to leave by her father. (c) Meghna Sahoo Losing their fathers bothered Meera and Meghna to no end, they simply couldn't get over the fact that they no longer had a father to call their own. Meera shared with MensXP that though it started out on a sour note, her experiences and explorations over the following years made it clear to Meera that it was the society and its diktats that were to blame, and not her father. Even Meghna seconds this as she told us that it was indeed the societal pressure that pushed her father to take such a drastic measure. But eventually he did come around. Meera & Her Father Yet, Meera is quick to admit that regardless of it all, it was her father who saved her from choosing the wrong path when the going got tough. She said, “there once came such a low point when I had almost gotten into working as a *** worker. Transgenders are infamous for the job, and perhaps that is why even my father loathed our kind. But I remembered by father's words that we must never do something that would break a family or stop us from holding our head high. That's when I decided to turn my life around.” Meghna & Her Father She adds that, “when my father read about my work and the movement I had launched for the transgender community, he made my brother call me. But when my brother began threatening me on the phone I heard my father slap him, and the next moment he told go ahead and do what you want, live how you want to.” Meghna also has a similar story of reconciliation that is equally heartwarming. Fours years after she was thrown out of the house, Meghna received a call from her father. She says, “my father told me that they have built a new house and I should be there with the entire family for the housewarming. He added that the celebrations would be incomplete without my presence.” (c) Meghna Sahoo A lot has changed in Meera and Meghna's life since those fateful days of reconciliation with their fathers. Meera holds a doctorate, is a transgender rights champion and an active face in Odisha's political scene. As for Meghna, she is a well-known Transgender activist from Odisha with a MBA degree and an NGO that she runs, apart from being the first transgender driver with OLA. (c) Meghna Sahoo But if there is one thing both of them earnestly believe, it is that no matter what happens, nothing can alter the bond a father shares with his child.
  10. Happy Father's Day! It's that time of the year again where everyone is just openly showing so much love for their fathers and it's honestly so wholesome and great too. It's just a good day to be on social media and see people show so much appreciation. Side note: not trying to be salty or anything, but I haven't seen any sarcastic posts about how kids are sharing pictures with their fathers on Instagram or Twitter when their fathers aren't even on that website. Coming back to all the Father's Day wishes, Bollywood hasn't shied away from sharing all the love and most of the celebrities are posting heartfelt messages while a few have some funny stuff. Starting off, Karan Johar with such an emotional caption. View this post on Instagram Papa!

  11. There's nothing better than finding a sharp comeback or quoting something wise when your back is against the wall. Words can indeed be mightier than a sword. Following are some of the most awesome comebacks from famous movies or TV series which you can use on one occasion or the other: 1. When You Tell A Joke And Your Friend Doesn't Laugh: “I'll explain and I'll use small words so that you'll be sure to understand.” —The Princess Bride 2. When Your Friend Does A Silly Thing: “You are what the French call, les incompetent.” – Home Alone 3. When Someone Goes Below The Belt: “You are a sad, strange little man, and you have my pity.” – Toy Story 4. When Your Crush Asks You If She Should Laugh At Your Silly Joke: “Go ahead, make my day.” – Sudden Impact 5. When Someone Roasts You Badly In A Group: “You talking to me?” – Taxi Driver 6. When Your Girlfriend Complains You Drink Too Much: “Well, nobody's perfect.” – Some Like It Hot 7. When Your Bae Asks Why Are You Visiting The Friends/Relatives You Hate: “Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.” – The Godfather II 8. When A Guy You Hate Tells You He'll Destroy You In Front Of Your Bae: "You come at the king, you best not miss." – The Wire 9. When Someone Is Trying To Roast You: “You're boring me.” – Blackish 10. When Your Drunk A*s Gets Into A Fight With The Bouncer & Your Friends Ask You To Chill: “I laugh in the face of danger!” – The Lion King Whatever the situation is, a wise-ass reply will make you savage!
  12. Jofra Archer was one of the mainstays in the Rajasthan Royals team that took the field in IPL 2019. Economical and dangerous, he was one of the best young bowlers in the competition and vital to the bowling lineup of the Royals and he has now rapidly become one of the most sought-after all-rounders in white-ball cricket. Born in Barbados to an English father, he knew very early that England was the nation he wanted to represent in international cricket. Taking advantage of his British passport, he had a successful spell at Sussex as well as T20 leagues all over the world, before getting the call-up to the Royals team in 2018. Archer has made giant strides and has become one of the most sought-after all-rounders in English county cricket, where he represents Sussex. He has made 1003 runs in 28 first-class matches at an average of 31.34 and strike rate of 71.33. He is a dangerous lower-order batsman capable of hitting the long ball as his LIST-A and T20 strike rates of 121.51 and 140.74 suggest. His wicket-taking prowess is further highlighted by his strike rate in LIST-A cricket (35.9) and T20 cricket (17.3). © Reuters His effectiveness was on display in his first ODI series against Pakistan as well as Ireland, in the run-up to the World Cup, as he showed he had what it takes to perform at the international stage. His callup to the England squad for the World Cup became a huge talking point among English cricket fans in the runup to the tournament, and it happened at the very last minute, in circumstances that seemed tailored just for him. Not long after he had been a British citizen for just three years, the English Cricket Board announced a dramatic change in the qualification criteria for selection to the national squad in March 2019. The previous requirement asked for seven-year citizenship to be available for selection but Archer's three years are now adequate for qualification. @cricketworldcup TWO IN TWO! Archer is on a hat-trick, as Cottrell walks back. pic.twitter.com/Gyvjq4mhP1 — Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 14, 2019 In England's match against the West Indies, his native land, Archer was part of the opening spell and was instrumental in bowling the Windies out for a measly total of 212 through a spell of 3 wickets for 30 runs in 9 overs. England are ranked no1 in ODIs as per ICC Rankings and as hosts they, along with Team India, are the hot favourites to lift the ICC World Cup 2019 Trophy. As they prepare their bid to lift the trophy, Archer has established himself as a mainstay in the team, and his journey has been no less than a fairytale.
  13. Within five days, a strike that started in West Bengal, has now spread to other cities with doctors from all over the country showing solidarity to the cause of protection of medical practitioners. It all started on Monday at the Nil Ratan Sircar Medical College and Hospital where a 74-year-old patient Mohammad Syeed passed away. The relatives of the deceased allegedly beat up the doctors blaming medical negligence for the death. The clash led to an intern getting a severe head injury. Kolkata:Junior doctors at NRS Medical College&Hospital go on strike after doctors were allegedly attacked by a patient's family who died yesterday.Chandrima Bhattacharya,Health Min,says,"Emergency is open&talks are on.4 ppl have been arrested in connection with attack on doctors" pic.twitter.com/EU3HNJvfnV — ANI (@ANI) June 11, 2019 Following that, doctors at NRS refused to release Syeed's body, demanding an apology for the incident. This was followed by some relatives and local residents storming the hospital and pelting stones at junior doctors. Reportedly, five relatives of the deceased have been arrested after an FIR. The incident led to a lot of outrage with people demanding safe working spaces for doctors. Apparently, the doctors are also wearing bandages and helmets as a way to protest. Following the incident at NRS, a lot of junior doctors from different hospitals in West Bengal also joined the protest. West Bengal: Doctors at North Bengal Medical College, Siliguri observe strike over violence against doctors at NRS Medical College & Hospital pic.twitter.com/qZvMkUEX0X — ANI (@ANI) June 14, 2019 With Delhi Medical Association (DMA) declaring a Black Day yesterday, the protest also spread to Delhi with AIIMS Delhi joining in. The Indian Medical Association also urged doctors to wear a black badge as a way to protest. Delhi: Doctors at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) prepare to observe strike over violence against doctors in West Bengal. pic.twitter.com/pza71njjum — ANI (@ANI) June 14, 2019 Yesterday afternoon, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee issued a four-hour ultimatum to end the doctors' strike while visiting the state-run SSKM hospital in Kolkata. She was quoted as saying, “[Doctors who are protesting] are outsiders. The government will not support them in any way. I condemn doctors who have gone on strike. Policemen die in line of duty but the police don't go on a strike.” She also said, “Medical services come under the Essential Services Act and the doctors cannot afford to do such protests. I don't understand medicine, but today I saw an accident victim lying without being attended to. He will die lying there because of the protest. Let good sense prevail or else we will be forced to take action.” While her stand till now is still understandable, she did bring in BJP and called it a conspiracy. She said, “This strike is a BJP conspiracy. Protesters are disrupting medical services. This should end at once. All anti-social people of one particular community are doing this under police protection.” Really not the time for this, tbh. While the strike is still continuing and doesn't seem to come to an end soon, there are two different narratives emerging. There are stories about how a lot of patients are suffering because the doctors aren't there to treat them. Delhi: Patients face difficulties as Resident Doctors Association (RDA) of AIIMS is on strike today over violence against doctors in West Bengal. Relative of a patient says, "My mother's dialysis was scheduled for today, we were told to go & get it done from somewhere else," pic.twitter.com/sFVF6D8VMj — ANI (@ANI) June 14, 2019 But, at the same time, there are a lot of posts about doctors wearing helmets and bandages as a symbol of protest while also treating patients. Delhi: Members of Resident Doctors' Association of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) work wearing helmets & bandages, as a mark of protest against "worsening of violence against medical doctors in West Bengal." pic.twitter.com/Fgrv6Jtjdq — ANI (@ANI) June 13, 2019 People on Twitter are mostly standing with the doctors and respect their fight for safety while working. A lot of people have also brought up the fact that a lot of other patients are suffering and that's not fair. This is what happened when 200 people came by trucks and attacked Doctors and interns at NRS Hospital. They thrashed an intern's skull bcz a 85 yrs old man died. It doesnt feel safe living in WB nowadays. It's a goon's era we are living in. The protest must go on. #standwithnrs pic.twitter.com/9WkqH2XHOI — Nabanita Das (@nabanita_speaks) June 11, 2019 Dear Doctors, I completely empathise with the fact that whatever happened in #NRS is deplorable & a strong protest is very valid but it's also true that making other patients, including small babies, suffer due for no to fault of theirs is also not something u can really justify — Babul Supriyo (@SuPriyoBabul) June 13, 2019 People are also calling out Mamata Banerjee. Attack on doctors happened in NRS college bt CM Mamata Banerjee went to SSKM college. Instead of condemning attack, she is condeming strike and clng students outsider & politicaly motivated. She is okay with doctors getting killed in line of duty. Again vote bank. #BengalBurning — Pradeep Bhandari (@pradip103) June 13, 2019 Summed up. A patient Mohammed Sayeed died in NRS Hospital in Bengal. Soon after that: 1. Hospital was attacked by a violent Mob of 200 People. 2. Rioters came in two lorries to attack the doctors. 3. Mob also pelted bricks. Many injured. One Doctor is struggling for life. Pray for him. — Anshul Saxena (@AskAnshul) June 12, 2019 As per the latest reports, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) has announced a nationwide doctors' strike on June 17. The IMA said 3.5 lakh doctors will participate in the nationwide strike on Monday. Watch this space for more update.
  14. The International Space Station, as we all know, is currently the only fully functional space station in the Earth's lower orbit. It's the result of a partnership between European countries represented by the European Space Agency the United States, Japan, Canada, and Russia. Well, looks like there's going to be another space station by the year 2030 and it's going to be launched by none other than India. The same has been confirmed by the ISRO chief K Sivan during a press conference where he also talked a bit more about the project. © Reuters He made it a point to inform that India will not be joining the International Space Station (ISS) and launch its own space station, which will be an extension of the Gaganyaan project. “We have to sustain the Gaganyaan programme. So, subsequently, as a long-term plan, we are planning to have the space station in India. We are going to join the international community in manned missions to the moon, asteroids. We have a clear plan for the space programme,” Sivan said. The proposed space station will likely weigh 20 tonnes and it's said to be used for conducting microgravity experiments. India is targetting 2030 as the date to launch the space station and the preliminary plan is for the space station is to accommodate astronauts for up to 15-20 days in space. We still don't have a lot of details, but we hope to learn more after the completion of Gaganyaan mission. © Reuters As for the Gaganyaan mission, the government is said to have cleared a budget of Rs. 10,000 crore. It looks like there will be two flights from Sriharikota before the maiden flight with crew takes of sometime in 2022. ISRO's complete focus right now is on India's second moon mission, Chandrayan -2. It will take off on July 15 and will attempt to land near the South Pole of the Moon, which has remained an uncharted territory so far. You can learn more about the Chandrayan-2 mission right here.
  15. You read that right, folks. If you're a crazy Avengers fan and booking cool vacations is your thing, then this is the ultimate amalgamation for you. The gorgeous cabin which was Tony Stark's residence in the 'Endgame' chapter is now listed on Airbnb website, which means you can legit book it and stay in it. © Airbnb This is the same cabin where he's shown living with his wife and daughter and also where his funeral takes place in the movie. The lake-side, rustic looking cabin has 3 rooms and can house 6 guests, has to be booked for minimum 3 nights and initially the listing began from around 300 dollars but now it's already up to 800 dollars a night, which means around Rs 55,000 per night, which is steep but if you save well and have a group of 6 crazy friends up for this adventure, then maybe this can be a good plan. © Airbnb © Airbnb The location is pretty close to the Atlanta airport; so if you are visiting the US and you have the budget to squeeze in this tiny 3-day retreat, then may be you should think about it. Even if you're not a superhero in real life, doesn't mean anything should stop you from living like one.
  16. Drop tests are often a way to brag about a smartphone's durability, however, a Chinese smartphone company took it to the next level. Chinese company Iqoo (Owned by VIVO) tested a smartphone by attaching it to a high-altitude balloon that went up to 31,540 meters or 1,03,000. The smartphone was then dropped and to everybody's surprise, it survived the fall! © Weibo The smartphone in question is a gaming smartphone by the Chinese company and was found in a working state after the fall. The video shows the smartphone ascending into the air that also helped in assessing the battery life of the smartphone in extreme conditions. The smartphone survived extreme temperatures of -56 degrees Celsius, which is quite impressive even though this test could be carried out in the factory. Finding the smartphone after the fall was challenging and it was located using 4X4 SUVs and drones. When the smartphone was discovered the screen was still recording and had suffered some damage, which was quite impressive. © Weibo The smartphone itself has a 4,000 mAh battery, a 6.41-inch screen and is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 processor. The smartphone also supports 44w fast-charging. This is not the first time a smartphone has been dropped from such a great height as previously, companies like Xiaomi, Honor and others have demonstrated a similar drop test. Having said that, this is the highest drop test we've ever seen on a smartphone yet.
  17. Air Force One is undoubtedly one of the most popular planes on the planet. It's responsible for carrying the President of The United States and is a symbol of the country's might. Thanks to multiple Hollywood films and documentaries, the aircraft is globally recognised and a treat for aviation geeks. Though there's another plane that follows the Air Force One, and it's actually a lot cooler. Often dubbed as the "Doomsday Plane", it is America's secretive jet designed to survive a nuclear war. In the event of Armageddon, it'll the U.S. Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and other top personalities alive whilst the president would be on board the Air Force One. © USAF Technically called the E-4B, it's a modified version of the Boeing 747-200 and officially called the National Airborne Operation Centers. The design of the plane is meant to survive an electromagnetic pulse with all the systems left intact. Currently, there are four planes in the fleet and always available on standby to shadow the Air Force One. © Aiirsoure Military / YouTube Nuclear explosions emit a strong electromagnetic pulse that can severely damage electronic circuits (computer chips), hence the E-4B additionally uses traditional analogue flight instruments to navigate. In operation since the 1970s, these aircraft have been considered to be the best chance for a Cold War president to survive a nuclear attack. © USAF The plane isn't designed to offer comfort and focus has been on utility. They can carry dozens of military analysts, strategists and communication aids to enable a working government from the sky. Another special feature includes a five-mile-long trailing wire antenna that would ensure that the president could remain in contact with the nuclear submarine fleet even after ground-based communications had been destroyed. Based out of Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, Nebraska, the planes are always ready to fly at a moments notice. According to aviation forums, one aircraft is usually airborne every 12 hours, with another one ready for departure with a 5-minute notice. © US Government Boeing stopped making the 747-200 long back and the U.S Government has been planning to phase out the Air Force One (VC-25A). Even the E-4B needs a replacement soon because the airframe has been used extensively and older spare parts are harder to find for regular maintenance. Fun Fact: You can fly this plane in GTA V via a mod!
  18. Xbox kicked off E3 last night and showcased what the Xbox Game Studios has been cooking for us. Yes, let's just say that there are a ton of games coming your way till 2020.

So, here are some of the best game announcements from Xbox E3 that are worth checking out. Halo Infinite Although the new Halo was the last game to be showcased at the briefing, we're starting our list with it, because that's how it was. The Master Chief is back and like every year, it will yet again stand as a testament to the new era of Xbox hardware. Gears 5 Microsoft also made it a point to showcase the upcoming Gears 5 title with a bang. Along with a release date for the game, the studio also announced a new game mode called 'Escape' that looks classy and gorier than ever. Cyberpunk 2077 Oh yes! Cyberpunk 2077 was also showcased.

Seriously, how cool is that? Yes, you can now take the fun and blocky Lego cars for a spin alongside the realistic ones in Forza Horizon 4. Elden Ring Last, but not least, we have the new 'Elden Ring'. This is the new title that we all have been waiting for.

You can quickly head over to Xbox's official YouTube channel or social media handles to check out the other games. And by the way, the new Xbox is also coming. Microsoft didn't really reveal any specs or tell us what it'll look like, but we do know that they're calling it the 'Project Scarlett'. Here, check it out - The new Xbox console is coming next year and it looks like it's going to be a powerhouse.
  19. Let's face it, no one looks as charming as Jim Sarbh or Milind Soman with grey hair. Everyone freaks out when they see a few strands of grey hair for the first time on their head, no matter what the age. People often associate greying hair with age. So, naturally, for most men and women in their twenties, spotting a bit of grey hair on their heads makes their world come crashing down on them. Now, it is absolutely normal for anybody to have one or two strands of grey hair. However, if you spot a bunch of them, chances are that there's something wrong. If you are one of the many people who have fallen victim to this modern-day vice, read on to find out how do you stop premature ageing: 1. Eat Right © Getty Images You've got to have a balanced diet, preferably one that has some key nutrients in abundance. Vitamins B12 and C are key for great scalp health and really goes a long way to stop premature greying. 2. Sleep Well © Getty Images No matter what you do, you simply cannot avoid living a stressful lifestyle. The only alternative that remains is to get proper rest. We suggest following a set sleeping pattern, one that has at least 6-7 hours of sleep. 3. Workout © Getty Images If you get the time to hit the gym regularly, kudos to your dedication and time management skills. However, since it is nearly impossible for the rest of us to do so, it is ideal if you workout anywhere and anytime you get a chance. Try taking the stairs instead of the escalator. Or walk instead of taking a rickshaw for a short distance to the nearby market. 4. Quit Smoking © Getty Images Nearly all your health problems can be linked to this one. We know how hard can it be to really kick the butt, but trust us when we say this, that it is completely worth it. Smoking causes some really drastic hormonal changes that are really detrimental for your hair. Apart from greying hair, it can also cause dry and itchy scalp, or worse, premature hair fall. 5. Oil Your Hair © Getty Images We all love a good oil massage, especially when our mom used to do it for us with all that zeal and passion. Unfortunately, most of us don't have that luxury anymore, thanks to our hectic schedules and super busy lifestyles. So, it helps if you think of massaging your hair more as a necessity than an option. And let's not forget, how relaxing and rejuvenating a good hair massage feels like. 6. Avoid Harsh Hair Products © Getty Images You really need to be cautious when you are choosing a shampoo. Not only there are chances that your current shampoo, as well as conditioner, does not actually suit you, they may be really harsh for your scalp and hair. Try sampling a few options before finally settling for one. Or, consult a dermatologist to find out what works for you.
  20. The year was 2006. As I sat writing my final exams for Class VI, the following question appeared on the paper: “Music is a language that transcends all boundaries.” Elaborate. Already prepared for a question like this (having our ears drilled by our teacher to the same effect), I started scribbling out the well-worded answer I had slogged over during the last few days. At age 11, one can hardly fathom the depth of William Wordsworth's eloquent words to define a song he heard a maiden sing in a mellifluous voice in a language he didn't understand. Perhaps like Mr Wordsworth who couldn't decipher the song in 'The Solitary Reaper'', my 2006 version was also unable to grasp the complexity of music. Thirteen years later, I can say that I have understood the true meaning of the question. Music is everywhere, you just need to the heart to perceive it: Birds chirping, the din of the market, TV Shows, movies, the clanging of vessels, the rhythmic clinking of the clock, the soft thumping of one's heart. I found out that my favourite kind of music was the one you could forget yourself into, like the score of a movie; the ethereal orchestral symphony which transcends you to a place where you can start envisioning the music. You and music become one, the notes seem to materialize in front of you, heal you. The cacophony of the world is forgotten. There is a fascinating charm to these scores; they are not mere theme setters for the movie. Movie scores exemplify and elevate important moments of the protagonist's life; be it Batman putting on his suit for the first time, or Nina finally turning into the Black Swan, or Rose finding love with Jack, or Frodo defeating Gollum once and for all. So, especially for you, here is a list of 21 best movie scores of all time: 1. The Dark Knight Trilogy (2005-2012): The fact that Hans Zimmer is a musical prodigy par excellence is no secret. And that his musical score for movies is heavenly is as trivial a detail as say: the Sun rises in the East. With Goth undertones, Mr Zimmer, along with James Newton Howard, makes Batman come alive in our minds with the intense score of the three movies, in this re-imagining of Batman as an anti-hero by Christopher Nolan, starring Christian Bale. (The Holy Trinity of Films: Nolan, Bale, and Zimmer). © Syncopy/Legendary Pictures/ Patalex III Productions/Warner Bros. Pictures The music has been composed in such a way that it connects you to Batman like never before; music which embodies the conflict Bruce faces, the dilemma of Batman, and the choices he has to make. Listening to it echoes a tremendously powerful emotion within. © Syncopy/Legendary Pictures/ Patalex III Productions/Warner Bros. Pictures Be it “A Storm is Coming”, with its menacing, ominous tone. Or the eerie “Why So Serious?”. The powerful “Rise” which awakens a part of your soul. Not to forget “Bane's Chant”. Goosebumps! A score that will haunt you even after you have finished watching the movies. And that is the brilliance of Hans Zimmer. 2. Sense and Sensibility (1995): Other than being a marvellous movie in itself, this Emma Thompson-written masterpiece of Jane Austen's novel, directed by Ang Lee, boasting of an extremely talented ensemble cast has one of the most soulful scores of all time. Patrick Doyle's genius shines through the melodic symphony of the entire soundtrack, engaging the viewer (and listener) to relate to the struggles of the characters, be it Marianne's lost love (Miss Grey) or her coming of age (Weep You No More Sad/The Dreame ), or the anticipation of meeting her suitor (Mr Willoughby) or Elinor's strolls through the gardens with Edward (My Father's Favorite). © Columbia Pictures/ Mirage Enterprises Nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Score, there's no doubt that it deserves the praise it has got; the way it changes from a dreamy fancy to a mellow elegy, to a more serious rendition as the movie progresses is beautifully indescribable. With a classical base, the music transports you to the countryside of England, as Elinor and Marianne navigate the atrocities of the elite English social life. 3. Beetlejuice (1988): Weird, eerie and perfect for a goofy movie with eccentric characters. With Tim Burton as director, you know it is going to be a crazy joyride. Add to it the musical mastermind of Danny Elfman, and it is the best of both worlds. © The Geffen Company/ Warner Bros. Pictures Quirky, with a calypso vibe, which perfectly replicates the madness on screen, it will make you dance to its whimsical tune! 4. Titanic (1997): Because our 'hearts will go on' till eternity! Romance personified, James Cameron's magnum opus' score by legendary composer James Horner is the reason why 'Titanic' makes you believe in love. Based on soft strings, violins, and the piano, the score has an ethereal beauty. © Paramount Pictures/ 20th Century Fox/ Lightstorm Entertainment A beatific score which makes you feel that you are in heaven; be it the romantic “Rose” which plays when Jack sees Rose for the first time (and leitmotifs all throughout), the travel vibes from “Never An Absolution”, or the uplifting notes of “Southampton”. As the story moves forward, the score's feeling of astonishment and joy is punctuated by the dark “Death of the Titanic”, a sad dirge when the ship meets its perilous fate. My heart always breaks when the orchestra plays “Nearer My God to Thee” while the bandleader, Wallace Hartley, bravely keeps playing, all the while knowing what lies ahead. Not to mention “My Heart Will Go On” by Céline Dion which has been a love anthem since the movie released. 5. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (2001-2003): Just one word: Marvelous! A truly fabulous score by music composer par brilliance, Howard Shore, who created a score so ingenious for all the three movies that it can hardly be compared to another. The music is fantasy personified; there are about about100 specially crafted leitmotifs which keep on changing in intonation and tempo. What is even more fascinating is that each theme corresponds to a particular culture of Middle-earth, just think about it! © New Line Cinema/ WingNut Films With over four years of conducting, writing, composing and orchestrating, this intricate, sweeping score is a labour of love; Shore's love child with music. Moreover, it is one of the greatest scores of all times with respect to its length, soloists, instrumentation, among other attributes. With its operatic sound and antiquated feeling, listening to the score is an indulgence in itself. Another enthralling thing about the score is its nuance: it doesn't just reflect the scene or doesn't only suggest the mood, it tells a story, narrates the drama underlying in the scene. If that isn't creative brilliance, I don't what is! 6. Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961): If it wasn't famous enough for its iconic fashion, courtesy of Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly, the music is another feather in the cap of this beautiful, beautiful movie. © Jurow-Shepherd/ Paramount Pictures Henry Mancini's melodious score is a romantic extravagance which makes you fall in love with it the minute you hear it. My personal favourite has to be “Moon River” (with lyrics by Johnny Mercer), especially the one Audrey Hepburn croons while sitting on the balcony. The opening scene where an instrumental “Moon River” plays, makes you feel a strange mix of emotions as Holly steps out of a cab, with a coffee and a Danish. (All hail Blake Edwards!) Longingly looking at the necklace showcased on Tiffany's store window, lazily munching on the Danish, Holly Golightly signifies all of us contemplating over our desires. © Jurow-Shepherd/ Paramount Pictures 7. Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope (1977): Iconic! Who hasn't heard to this legendary score? A score which literally gives “a new hope”. © Lucasfilm/ 20th Century Fox George Lucas' masterpiece, scored by composer John Williams, is a movie which is synonymous with the sci-fi revolution in cinema. But its musical theme is just as fabulous as the movie; a sound which makes you fill with nostalgia and hope. 8. Gladiator (2000): Ridley Scott's classic movie has an extremely powerful score which makes you feel as though you have stepped into the action of the Colosseum in Rome. © Scott Free Productions/ Red Wagon Entertainment/ Universal Pictures/ DreamWorks Pictures Another one of Hans Zimmer's creations, with vocals by Lisa Gerrard, the music encapsulates Maximus' struggles. The music is laced with heroism, with the score expositing the valiant efforts of Maximus as he fights his way as a Gladiator in Ancient Rome. “Elysium” has a penetrating feeling; it touches your heart in an intensely personal way. 9. Lawrence of Arabia (1962): An epic movie starring Peter O'Toole, directed by David Lean, based on one of history's game-changers, T.E. Lawrence. The main theme has a mystical quality about it; a mixture of Arabian Night-esque music, Western vibes, and military music. Maurice Jarre's musical genius shines throughout the score. It makes you feel you have travelled into the sandy deserts of the Middle East; you can envision the dunes, the camels, the caravans. Essentially, it mirrors the plot of the movie: the conflict between the Ottoman Turks and nomadic Arabian tribes (guided by T.E. Lawrence) resulting in a guerilla war during World War I. © Horizon Pictures/ Columbia Pictures Not only is the music great to hear, with its loud booming quality, but it is also visually appealing, and falls perfectly in line with the scene on screen: the rolling motion of caravans at a leisurely pace, pulled by camels, along the desert. The underlying bass line only intensifies the effect. The tambourine music in parts of the repetitions of the score adds to the exotic Middle Eastern charm. 10. Back to the Future (1985): One of the most iconic time-travel centric sci-fi movies of all time, 'Back to the Future's' main theme echoes an adventurous, futuristic vibe. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, 'Back to the Future' is one of the most famous movies of the 80s, marking the second of multiple collaborations between Robert Zemeckis and Alan Silvestri (who would go on to become one of the most illustrious composers of the era). © Amblin Entertainment/ Universal Pictures The fanfare is perhaps the most recognized of movie themes; just the right amount of heroic and quirky! Also, the soundtrack has gems like “The Power of Love” (by Huey Lewis and the News) and “Johnny B. Goode” (by Chuck Berry), which are trendsetting songs in their own right! All aboard The DeLorean! 11. The Godfather (1972): Everything about 'The Godfather' is epic: the novel, the movies, and the music. Francis Ford Coppola's crowning glory was scored by Italian composer Nino Rota who is responsible for the legendary 'The Godfather Waltz'. © Alfran Productions/ Paramount Pictures Borrowing from his previously scored movie, 'Fortunella', Nino elevated the Italian feel of the music in 'The Godfather', capturing the misfortune of the characters thus invoking a tragic vibe in the score. 'The Godfather Waltz' and 'Love Theme from The Godfather' are a testament to the previous fact and to the ingenuity of Nino Rota's musical dexterity. 'The Pickup' captures the gangster theme of the movie with its bouncy, ominous feel. 12. Harry Potter (The First Three Movies) (2001-2004): Magical, mysterious and haunting. A trip down memory lane with this gem of a score, composed by John Williams. © Warner Bros. Pictures/ Heyday Films 'Hedwig's Theme' is always a tearjerker, with its plaintive notes emoting Harry's loneliness which slowly turns into a merry, elevating melody echoing Harry's entrée into the wizarding world. Will I cry when I hear it? Always. 13. Avengers: Endgame (2019): A fairly new movie on the list but kudos to Alan Silvestri's prowess as a composer who can wield magic with the conductor's baton (his personal Mjölnir, if you will), this movie's soundtrack has surpassed its predecessors while keeping the nostalgia intact. Sweeping, powerful and intense, the music sets the perfect tone for the finale of the Avengers franchise. Be it the war sequence, Captain America finally lifting the Mjölnir, the appearance of the heroes left behind (Portals), or the final Snap (The Real Hero), the score effortlessly manages to pull you in. © Marvel Studios/ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures 'Whatever it Takes' touches you in ways you couldn't imagine, making you nostalgic about the sacrifices all the Avengers have made to reach here. My personal favourite is the jazzy 'It's Been A Long, Long Time' by Harry James (sung by Kitty Kallen) which plays as the movie comes to an end. Such a beautiful way to say goodbye! And such a satisfying visual to accompany it! 14. Requiem for a Dream (2000): A trippy movie with a hauntingly eerie soundtrack which makes you lose your mind (in a good way!). Darren Aronofsky's unconventional film about unfulfilled human desires is made more compelling by its theme, scored by Clint Mansell, ostentatiously using György Ligeti's “Lux Aeterna” in most parts. © Thousand Words/ Protozoa Pictures/ Artisan Entertainment The score is ominous, a bit tenebrous (a quality of Aronofsky's movies) and intentionally raw. The music plays an important role in the life of the characters, mirroring their cravings and addictions, and the extent they'll go for it. 15. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968): Another groundbreaking sci-fi movie, directed by eccentric genius Stanley Kubrick who (in)famously scrapped all the music created by Alex North for the movie (without informing him), was scored entirely by classical music. © Stanley Kubrick Productions/ Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Stanley Kubrick decided to go with legendary classical pieces: Richard Strauss' poem 'Also Sprach Zarathustra', the waltz “The Blue Danube” by Johann Strauss II, and “Lux Aeterna” by György Ligeti, which have since become synonymous with the movie in such a way that it is impossible to think about 2001 without “The Blue Danube” playing in your mind. His reason was that he wanted his movie to be more of an aural sensory experience, not reliant on dialogue or verbal cues, thus using grand, majestic, soulful compositions from the classical past of music. Needless to say, the peculiar decision did turn out well for the movie. 16. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982): John Williams scores (no pun intended) again with the music of this adorable movie directed by Steven Spielberg. It captures the essence of childhood: the innocence, the sense of wonder, the inquisitiveness in all of us at that age. It has an emotional feel to it which strikes a chord with the old and young alike, igniting long-forgotten memories. © Amblin Entertainment/ Universal Pictures The best part of the score has to be the flying bicycle(“Flying”)! Joy, amazement, and fun all rolled into the music. And the music for the farewell brings out tears. Every. Single. Time. “E. T. Phone Home!” More like, “E.T. Don't Phone Home!” 17. Gone With The Wind (1939): Scarlett O'Hara's trials and tribulations find their expression in the music of the movie. Scored by Max Steiner, one of the greatest of composers in the Golden Age of Cinema, the score is sufficiently heartbreaking while being majestic in its own right. © Loew's Inc./ Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/ Selznick International Pictures The score is instrumental in charting out the character development; a distinguishing quality of Mr Steiner's work. They don't make them like that anymore! Because “frankly, my dear, they don't give a damn!” about music anymore. 18. Schindler's List (1993): Composed and conducted by John Williams (such a gifted treasure of a man), marking another collaboration with Steven Spielberg, Schindler List's score is a poignant experience. © Amblin Entertainment/ Universal Pictures Sad and melancholy, it voices the underlying distress and the terrible misfortune of Krakow. 19. Jurassic Park (1993): A score which has become tantamount to peak 90s and dinosaurs, composed by John Williams (again!), is a treat for the ears. © Amblin Entertainment/ Universal Pictures The score encapsulates the miracle of seeing something so unusual that you can't comprehend it through the main theme, then going to amazement and surprise in “Journey to the Island” and capturing the menace when the park turns rogue, with the rest of the score. 20. The Pink Panther (1963): Henry Mancini unleashes his musical genius in a funny way through “The Pink Panther” (another Blake Edwards masterpiece). © Mirisch Company/ United Artists The dubious, cartoony theme from the movie is perhaps as famous as the Taj Mahal and the most overused in movies which want to portray a comical investigation. The theme comprises a saxophone tenor which has over time become its most discerning quality. The score is funny, wacky and as quirky as the lead character, Jacques Clouseau (superbly played by Peter Sellers). The slapstick feel of the movie, the spry tone is effectively embodied by the score. 21. Goldfinger (1964): Do we really need an explanation for this? :P One of the most famous and iconic themes of all time. Shirley Bassey's vocals add to the drama to the music which has become synonymous with the spy thriller series, giving a nod to its sister theme. © Eon Productions/ United Artists 'Goldfinger', with its brassy, jazzy vibe, is one of the best pieces of music in the entire soundtrack of the James Bond movies. Mr Bond's suave sexiness is personified by the legendary theme. Thank you, John Barry! So, which is your favourite? Tell us in the comments!
  21. Concerns continue to grow for the South African cricket team, as they lost their third consecutive match of the ICC Cricket World Cup against India yesterday, at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. With cameos from Morris and Rabada, the match can only be seen as a complete failure of the South African batting lineup. © Reuters Recently, however, it has come to light that South African batsman AB De Villiers had made himself available for selection for the World Cup. In May of last year, AB had announced his retirement from international cricket through a video he posted on Twitter, stating that he was “tired” and “running out of gas”. De Villers had made his availability clear to captain Faf Du Plessis, head coach Ottis Gibson and convenor of selectors Linda Zondi and was turned down, as it was deemed to be unfair to the players that were already in contention for selection. Through their website, Cricket South Africa has released a statement regarding the matter, stating that they had to “stay true to their morals and principles” and “there is no regret in their decision.” They also mentioned that AB's absence in the home tours of Sri Lanka and Pakistan was a big reason for his exclusion, and he was made aware of this at the time. #CSAnews CSA National Selection Panel Convenor, Linda Zondi, addresses the media reports regarding AB de Villiers https://t.co/d1m8EGCkYS pic.twitter.com/YekcK7RliL — Cricket South Africa (@OfficialCSA) June 6, 2019 Meanwhile, opinion is divided over the decision and the extent to which this will affect South Africa in the World Cup 2019. Having already lost three games in the tournament, South Africa are unlikely to qualify for the semi-final stage of the World Cup, with three consecutively poor batting performances. It's quite possible to imagine that the situation could have been significantly different for the Proteas with AB's presence in the team. On the other hand, his inclusion in the team would prove to be detrimental to the efforts of someone like Rassie van Der Dussen, who made three fifties in his debut series against Pakistan in January. © Reuters While it seems certain that De Villiers will not feature for South Africa again, this may have left fans with a bad taste in their mouths as the journey one of the greatest players to don the South Africa jersey, ends on a bitter note. The story of AB's exclusion broke at the worst possible moment for South Africa, the morning after their third consecutive defeat at the hands of India.
  22. If there's anything that Bollywood is known for, apart from acting, controversies and gym pictures, it's the larger-than-life weddings of our beloved celebrities.

  23. We all knew Tony Stark would be a big part of 'Spiderman: Far From Home' but were we prepared for that? I don't know. Every new trailer or any footage since the release of 'Avengers: Endgame' has talked about Tony - and the fact that he's dead now - and well, now we're learning more and more about him still. In the Iron Man movies, we've seen Tony spending a lot of time in his lab working on his suits and well, 'Spiderman: FFH' shows his 'ward' Peter Parker working in his lab in one of Tony's planes. Remember Peter wearing Tony's glasses in the second official trailer? Now, we get to see what they actually do. Here's a compilation of a bunch of international teasers and trailers that have come out till now. So many new scenes, yet we still don't what the f**k is happening with the multiverse. That will be exciting to watch in just a few months. Actually, here's another set of teasers. Along with all of that, there's apparently a 'leaked' trailer as well which has a bunch of new footage along with everything we've seen before. BROTHERS AND SISTERS I PRESENT TO YOU pic.twitter.com/nC7iNu18i7 — *â§ï½¥ï¾* ð¤ðð²ð¥ð *ï½¥ï¾â§* (@suitedspidey) June 1, 2019 Yes, it's not exactly leaked since it looks like it probably played at some theatre before a movie. ('Endgame', I'm guessing) 'Spiderman: Far From Home' is almost here but it still seems so far away, and we really are dealing with some serious MCU withdrawal right now. July 2nd cannot come fast enough.
  24. After swimming in a pool of controversies, Hrithik Roshan's 'Super 30' is finally going to hit the theatres soon and the trailer that just dropped proves that it's going to be one of the most promising films of 2019. Phantom Films Ever since it was announced that a biopic is being made on Anand Kumar, founder of Super 30, starring Hrithik Roshan, the film has made more news than most of our mathematics scores combined. For those who didn't know, Super 30 is an academy that trains meritorious students from underprivileged backgrounds for JEE exams 'for free'. Phantom Films The 2-minute 37 seconds trailer shows Hrithik Roshan as Anand Kumar, a genius mathematician who is a celebrity among students for his unbelievable success rate when it comes to coaching. However, he gives up his lucrative job to help the underprivileged kids and ensure that every deserving kid gets a chance to make it big in the world. Phantom Films The dialogue, "Ab Raja ka beta raja nahi banega. Raja woh hi banega, jo haqdaar hoga", will go down in the history of Bollywood as one of the most impressive and hard-hitting dialogues ever. Also, can we take a moment to appreciate the reverse-transformation that Hrithik went through for the character? He has not only nailed the look, but his accent is also worth an applaud. Recently the biopic found itself in trouble, when Anand Kumar's former students accused him of lying and hiding facts, and when director Vikas Bahl was accused of sexual harassment. Despite surrounded by controversies, 'Super 30' is releasing on July 12.
  25. Less than 6 years ago, a young Andrew Robertson from a small town in Glasgow, Scotland led his local team Queens Park to a third-place finish and Playoff appearance in the third tier of Scottish football league. With a spinal injury hindering his football development, Robertson was set to give up on a career in football and join a university program to complete his undergraduate studies. However, he was called up to the first team by Queens Park during the 2012-13 season - a lifeline to his footballing career. Reuters After clinching a Playoff place with Queens Park, Andy was brought to Scottish premiership side Dundee where he spent a year until being purchased for £3 million by Hull City who were plying their trade in the Championship at that time. Promotion in his first season with the club meant that he would now be on the radar of major English clubs. After spending two seasons with Hull City, Robertson caught the eye of one Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool which inspired an eight-million-pound move to Merseyside in 2017. What followed over the next two seasons was neither anticipated by Liverpool nor by young Robertson. Reuters The seed had been laid by 2017 for the direction in which Klopp wanted to take his team and Robertson was exactly the kind of player to implement that vision. A young, raw, talented full-back who could run relentlessly and mark his man astutely. Over the last two seasons, under Klopp's guidance, the 25-year-old has established himself as a stalwart in the Liverpool defence, making him one of the (if not the best) left-back in European football at the moment. Appearing in 36 of the 38 premier league matches played by Liverpool this season, he has 11 assists to his name and contributed significantly to the 21 clean sheets kept by Liverpool - the highest in the league this season. Reuters Virgil van Dijk has often been touted as the main reason why Liverpool's defence has risen through the ranks the way it has this season, but the two full backs; Robertson and the young Englishman Trent Alexander-Arnold have truly made that unit a defensive rock, that played a pivotal role in the Reds' much-awaited triumph in Europe. From a small-town boy from Glasgow who almost gave up the sport to becoming a bit-part player for a local team in Scotland's third division to now UEFA Champions League winner; the journey of dynamic Robertson is the one that continues to give way to young and aspiring footballers who're looking to make a mark in the sport.
