  1. My name is Miten Kakaiya and I am a fitness coach. You might think it was easy for me, because it is my profession. The truth is that I was nowhere close to where I am now, physique wise. I tried and failed for many years before I learned what I was doing wrong and what I had to do right. This is a look into my journey. When Fitness Was A Dream Back in school, I was the 'fat', out-of-shape kid. I would still push myself to get through a workout routine (3 sets of 10 push-ups, 3 sets of 50 crunches, 3 sets of 10 squats) that I had fashioned for myself every night before bed. But those push-ups, crunches, and squats did absolutely nothing. Perhaps because I was doing it for the wrong reason, which was simply that I was frustrated. My first gym experience was a short, 3-month stint before I was to leave for the university to Manchester, UK. I thought it would do the trick since I clearly wasn't getting anywhere on my own. As part of my membership, I received a complimentary month-long diet plan, which was quite terrible. I also hired a personal trainer, who introduced me to the basics of weight training. The outcome was- I did manage to increase my arms by half a cm which gave me the false impression of having achieved an Arnie-like physique! Life Lesson 1 Stints don't stick. When starting any fitness journey, even if it's an 8-week Plan, the mindset should be to focus not just on a goal to be achieved by the end of the plan but to look ahead at making that planning part of a journey. When Fitness Was A Fad False impressions aside, my stint at the gym in India led me to join a gym as soon as I got to the UK in 2011 for keeping the momentum going. But the distractions of being in a new country, with new friends and a new life meant that I went to the gym not more than 6 times in a whole year. This plus my irregular eating habits resulted in a 'skinny fat' physique, which I had come to accept as my body shape. With very little motivation left in me, I didn't dare re-join the gym next year but occasionally played some football to keep my stamina up. When, in my third year, a gym opened up right under my student accommodation, my flatmate and best friend, who was also my first fitness motivator, persuaded me to join with him. We believed that thanks to the proximity, we'd be more regular than we'd ever been. What happened in reality though was that gymming became just a vanity trip – we'd go only on days we were planning to go out clubbing, so we could show-off the pump and feel good about ourselves. And although we were more consistent with gymming by the end of the year, my nutrition needs were severely lacking. Grabbing a burger from McDonald's or a £1 frozen pizza for our post-workout meals effectively meant our 'workout' sessions were nothing but a waste of time. The next year, an unexpected (albeit misguided) motivation came my way when my sister moved to the US, making it possible for me to attend my dream festival – the Ultra Music Festival in Miami in March 2014. Two months ahead of the festival, I was gymming 5 days a week, pushing myself to run that extra mile, and eating only home-cooked meals. At the end of 2 months, I achieved decent results (still no abs though!). But again it all came to naught, as after the festival I had lost all my motivation again. Life Lesson 2 Right reasons matter. Motivations come in many shapes and forms but the ones that truly last are those that are not limited by transient goals, such as a number of the weighing scale, a pair of jeans to fit into, or the number of abs that show. When Fitness Became A Reality In my final year at university, a new friend became possibly my biggest and most influential motivator till that point. He introduced me to the concept of a Balanced Diet (as opposed to just dieting), and Macros and how it all works. I came to realize the connection between food and exercise as I observed how eating healthier made working out easier, effective and enjoyable. It was during one month just before the summer of 2015, when I was on lockdown, studying for my exams that I went a clean-eating mission. Naturally, I had no distractions in the form of parties and what not. Instead, I was tied to my study table, with very little physical activity. My daily routine was cooking clean meals, eating them, studying, cooking again, eating again, studying and sleeping. To my shock and surprise, I saw the best results that I had ever seen in my entire life from those 4 weeks of no exercise but eating pristine clean. I had lost 7 kgs! I even observed the faint beginnings of my ab muscles showing through for the first time in my life. After years often pointless slogging at the gym, I realized that food was the real answer! Soon I couldn't wait to apply weight training with diet to see what wonders it would do for my body. And for once I was not disappointed! Two months later, I had a ripped physique with six-pack abs. Now I was the one with the physique I always admired on others. Life Lesson 3 Finding the right balance is crucial. Food is an essential part of the health and fitness equation. It literally is the fuel for our body and can change the outcome of your workout routines. Being on the fitness journey is also a constant process of learning about your body, how it works and what works. When Fitness Became A Lifestyle The results were so incredible and addictive that I just didn't feel like eating anything unhealthy. Eating clean and going to the gym became a natural part of my life, such that my day felt incomplete if I didn't eat clean through the day, and didn't manage to squeeze in at least one weight training session. What was also incredible was that I was seeing these results without having done a single mile of running or cardio. And I didn't even have to resort to bland foods and salads all the time. But I was willing to experiment, learn, and adopt a few things from my old lifestyle to fit my new one. By now, I knew what I was doing would continue to get me the results if I was consistent, and so I had no reason to stop. My goal, then, changed to PROGRESS. They say that it is good to have an end goal in mind. According to me, however, that's not the case for fitness. The aim shouldn't be just to reach a particular shape, size or number because you'll lose motivation the moment you get there – similar to what happened to me after Miami in 2014. But when the goal is to keep growing and progressing, one day at a time, to be the better version of yourself every single day - there is nothing that can stop you. My biggest victory was a mental one. I had long stopped comparing myself, my physique, my body with those around me. I was my only competition, and that was what motivated me to stay on track. Make this a lifestyle – do it to please no one but yourself. Life Lesson 4 The fitness journey never ends. Fitness becomes a lifestyle when it stops being something extra that you have to accommodate into your lives, instead becomes what directs how you live your life. Your fitness routine (diet and workout) also has to be your own. It has to seamlessly fit into your life so that it stops being a struggle but comes naturally to you.
  2. Sledging - the art of getting under your competition's skin by throwing shade at them via verbal intimidation. The idea is to shake your opponent's concentration thereby putting them in a situation in which they are likely to make mistakes and give you the opportunity to exploit their distraction. Having said that, there exists a very fine line between competitively mocking someone and actually offending them on levels that are not only socially unacceptable but can also mentally scar them, and sledging works along that thin line. Understandably, the process could get a bit tricky especially in today's era of the internet in which information travels faster than light and nothing ever is truly forgotten. In the first month of 2019, the cricketing world has seen two examples of sledging that were triggered for similar reasons but turned out to be poles apart in terms of their respective outcomes. While on one hand, we got to witness the great competitive spirit between the Indian wicketkeeper, Rishabh Pant and the Aussie Test captain, Tim Paine, during the Test series between India and Australia, on the other, was what we can only call a complete disaster at the hands of the Pakistani skipper Sarfraz Ahmed against South Africa's Andile Phehlukwayo. During India's tour Down Under, there were various instances in which Pant and Paine exchanged some cheeky comments. While Paine called him a 'babysitter', the 21-year-old returned the favour by asking him how his 'temporary' captaincy was going. The fact that Tim's wife Bonnie Paine joined the ongoing sketch with the classic photo with Pant and even the Australian Prime Minister appreciating the competition, made the rivalry a lot more exciting and fun to watch. Tim Paine doing some recruiting for the @HurricanesBBL out in the middle of the 'G... ð#AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/6btRZA3KI7 — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) December 28, 2018 Despite the comical banter, the two wicketkeepers and batsmen kept it classy while respecting the competing nature of one another. No badmouthing or display of passive aggression was reported during the series or even after it. It was good entertainment for the players, the commentators and the millions of Indian and Australian fans of the game who tuned in daily to watch the two historically great teams go head-to-head. It was Rishabh Pant's turn for some fun on the stump mic today... #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/RS8I6kI55f — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) December 29, 2018 And then there is Pakistan captain, Sarfraz Ahmed's absolute blunder which came up during the second ODI against South Africa. In a desperate attempt to break a completely dialled-in Andile Phehlukwayo's focus, the wicketkeeper yelled out: “Abey kaale, teri ammi aaj kahaan baitheen hain? Kya padhwa ke aaye hai aaj? (Hey black guy, where's your mother sitting today? What [prayer] have you got her to say for you today?).” Not so subtle, is it? Sarfaraz Ahmed to Andile Phehlukwayo: "abbay kaale teri Ami kahan bethi hoyi hain aaj, kya parhwa kay aya hai aaj" "black man wheres your mother sat? What have you asked your mother to pray for you today?"#SAvPAK pic.twitter.com/vw6yuE73OE — Saj Sadiq (@Saj_PakPassion) January 22, 2019 The comment was so offensive that even the legendary Ramiz Raja, the on-air commentator during the match, seemed uncomfortable even speaking about it and when asked by fellow commentator Mike Haysman to translate it for the rest of the English speaking audience, he bailed out by saying that it was a “big long sentence” and was therefore “difficult really to translate.” Racism, in any form, is unacceptable and when you are visiting a country like South Africa, that has a history so tainted by sacrifice and blood lost over colour based discrimination for decades, the visitors must be extra sensitive about such issues. For Ahmed, who happens to be the captain of a national team and therefore the most influential representative of his country, to say something so appalling, is a testament to his lack of sportsmanship and insensitivity towards the others. Pakistan not only lost the match at the hands of Phehlukwayo, who went on to become the Man of the Match but now, Ahmed is also looking at some very serious sanctions that the ICC is mulling over his violation of the ICC Anti-Racism Policy for International Cricket.
  3. Apple is inviting its users and iPhone photographers alike from around the world, to submit some of their best shots for its next “Shot on iPhone” campaign. Apple first started the “Shot on iPhone: campaign in 2015 when the Cupertino giant launched the iPhone 6. Apple mined Twitter and Instagram for pictures with the hashtag “#ShotOniPhone” that went on banners, billboards and magazine ads. The campaign was extremely successful as iPhone sales shot through the roof. © BCCL In fact, some of the best ads from Apple have come from user-generated content; especially from people who don't consider themselves photographers. Entering the contest is quite simple as you just need to upload your best pictures on Instagram or Twitter with the “ShotOniPhone” hashtag by February 7th. Weibo users can participate as well using #ShotOniPhone#. In the image caption, note which model was used. Alternatively, you can also submit the photo in its highest resolution to shotoniphone@apple.com with the file format 'firstname_lastname_iphonemodel.' © Adweek The pictures will be judged by a panel of judges and will select 10 photos that will be featured on billboards in select cities, retail outlets and an online store. The images will be judged by Pete Souza, the official photographer for President Barack Obama, Luísa Dörr who rose to fame after she photographed TIME's Firsts issue exclusively on iPhone and Austin Mann amongst others.

  4. Actors transforming themselves to get into a particular character is nothing new, nor is making a biopic an unusual affair in Bollywood. But, what's new is how seriously Bollywood is taking its transformation game these days. In fact, with Anupam Kher as former prime minister Dr Manmohan Singh and Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Bal Thackray, we've already seen what actors and filmmakers are capable of pulling off.

  5. Not much was known about the 'Bikini Climber', to the outside world, until recently the news of her sudden mysterious death, was all over our timeline. The world is full of rather strange people and we're not going to steal any attention away from her bizarre and strange antics. A young girl from Taiwan called Gigi Wu, who'd become a local social media sensation with her hiking stories, was also dubbed as the 'bikini climber' by all her limited fans. Why, you ask? That's because she took to the name too literally and would hike around mountain tops clad in just a bikini, obviously, relentlessly trying to make it on top of the mountain, along with a statement or two and a bunch of selfies. © Instagram The young climber set out to scale a mountain peak in Taiwan's Yushan National Park and she probably slipped and fell down 65ft, into a ravine. She then used a satellite phone to tell her friend about the fall, probably to seek some help, but unfortunately, when the rescue team arrived there, they just saw her lifeless body. The woman was trying to brave the cold weather conditions while wearing almost nothing, and due to the fall and the weather conditions weighing down on being unbearable, she lost her life. The rescue helicopter deployed to bring her back up struggled to reach her because of extremely bad weather and it took them about 28-hours to get to her body. © Twitter “The weather conditions in the mountains are not good, we have asked our rescuers to move the body to a more open space and after the weather clears we will make a request for a helicopter to bring the body down,” Lin Cheng-yi, an official from the Nantou County Fire and Rescue Services told a local publication, at the place of the incident. Wu had incidentally mentioned her coordinates to her friend when she called in an emergency after the fall. The string of social media influencers who've dived into the perils of adventure is increasing by the day. Just recently an Indian couple was found at the bottom of a popular cliff at California's Yosemite National Park, after a few hikers alerted the officials about their abandoned camera equipment at the top of the cliff. © Twitter The young guns, trying to meet the need for popularity through social media, now days is certainly over the top. The race to enhance any form of validation through these channels is so overpowering, that people don't realise the perils that come along with making a statement like that. 36-year-old Gigi Wu was also headed in that direction and she built a sizeable social-media following, by posting pictures of her on mountain tops, dressed in nothing but a bikini. She would usually wear hike-able clothes to scale the mountains only to change into a bikini when she'd reach the top, to click a photo of herself in it. She's scaled about 100 peaks in 4 years, which I believe is an achievement of some sort, but seriously, not at the cost of your own life? © Twitter In an interview to a local publication, she'd mentioned - “I put on a bikini in each one of the 100 mountains. I only have around 97 bikinis so I accidentally repeated some,”. Seriously, that's some true and intense dedication, isn't it? Well, when she was asked why she'd pose in a bikini at the top, she swiftly answered: “It just looks so beautiful, what's not to like?”. Fair enough, but I suppose there are pertinent things to really pay heed to, than pose for pictures in freezing weather, while wearing a bikini! © Twitter Here's hoping more hikers like Wu take some serious precautions while scaling mountain tops in freezing weather, to avoid plummeting or freezing to their untimely death!
  6. Looking back in time, I had always wanted to become a cricketer and my entire childhood was spent on the pitch. Then came the shock for me, as just like many talented young players, I could not clear the national trials and sadly had to put the bat down. My parents and teachers asked me to focus on the dreaded board exams. Back then I was extremely skinny. So skinny that my ribs were visible to the naked eye! People assumed that just because I was skinny, I was weak, which resulted in me getting bullied. This got to my head at times and I wanted to hit back but since I was way too skinny, they would often overpower me. This constant body shaming was bringing down my morale and confidence. Then I thought that if I would gain some weight, people will stop picking on me and I could stand up for myself. I joined a gym solely for this purpose. When I went in, I couldn't even lift a 2.5 kg dumbbell and even bodyweight exercises would hurt me. I was yet again bullied at the gym. I got frustrated within a week with all the bullying at the gym and decided to quit. Later that night, I saw Yash Anand's body transformation on YouTube. He was skinny just like me. Actually, even skinnier! But with consistency and hard work he built a great physique. This motivated me to forget about my bullies and just focus on my goal. Since that day there has been no turning back. Week by week, I overcame my weaknesses and got stronger. I learned from different Indian YouTubers and made my diet that fitted my lifestyle and budget. Training I usually follow two muscle groups a day routine and split it up into push-pull. Compound movements still are the core of my training. Progressive overload plays another big factor in muscle growth that I have always kept in mind. Eating I counted the calories that I needed in order to put on muscle mass and that was about it. I cook all my meals and keep a check on how much I am consuming and what all I am eating throughout the day. My ultimate goal is to build a physique like Hrithik Roshan, and I believe that in the last 2 years I have made some progress towards my goal. And I will continue to better myself each day.
  7. The much-awaited sequel and the final instalment in the 'Don' series is finally coming to life thanks to Farhan Akhtar, who made an official announcement and put all fans in a frenzy. © Instagram Here's all that we know about the grand finale of the series: 1. The Title - Unlike the first two instalments, this one won't merely be called 'Don 3'. As per numerous reports, this movie will be called 'Don: The Final Chapter' which means, there will be no more speculation of any more sequels and the story and fate of the 'Don' will be locked in this one. 2. No PC in it - Sadly, our favourite 'junglee billi' and Roma, the character which was wonderfully essayed by Priyanka Chopra will not be there, or at least will not be played by her because she is not a part of this final project. 3. Farhan will be a part of the cast - In the second instalment, we saw Hrithik Roshan having a guest appearance and in this one, the director himself will play the role of a cop. 4. SRK's rumoured exit from another project to take this one - While there has been no confirmation on this information, but many reports are observing that SRK apparently walked out of the Rakesh Sharma biopic to take up this sequel. A crypted tweet from the producer also further fuelled these rumours of the King Khan backing out. Most times the difference between Success and Failure is not a better Idea or ability but the courage to BET on the idea, PRE PLAN to perfection, take the calculated RISK and then STICK WITH IT. — Ronnie Screwvala (@RonnieScrewvala) January 19, 2019 It is believed that the project will go on the floors in mid-2019 and will be one action-packed treat for all SRK and 'Don' fans.
  8. Diets, diets and DIETS! There are so many diets floating about that you can never seemingly make up your mind to stick to one. It gets tiring and moreover, frustrating to pick the best diet suitable for your goals. Keeping it simple, there isn't any such thing called the 'best diet'. Yup, one diet never fits all. However, there can be some diets that can have the opposite effect and ensure you never achieve your fitness goals. So, if weight loss is your target, then stay away from these three diets: 1. The Paleo Diet © Thinkstock The Paleo diet was popularized by an American nutritionist Loren Cordain. It tries to mimic what our palaeolithic ancestors ate and eliminates all types of modern human-made foods such as agricultural foods (grains, wheat, rice, pulses), dairy (cheese, milk, butter) and processed foods (KFC, Lays, McDonald's). It essentially consists of meat, fruits, nuts, and leafy vegetables. The basic idea is: Since our ancestors were lean, strong and active, consuming a diet which they ate will provide us with the same attributes. The problem? This is an extremely flawed assumption. Our ancestors were not lean and strong because of the food they ate, it was the time period on earth wherein if you didn't have those traits you would be dead. Also, our palaeolithic ancestors were spread across the earth and consumed a variety of foods depending on geographic location and availability. ' Thus following this expensive diet (nuts and red meat are expensive) is not going to speed up your muscle gain or fat loss process. And unless you do not enjoy eating these foods on a regular basis there's no need to follow this diet. 2. The GM Or General Motor Diet © Thinkstock If you think the name of this diet is stupid, then brace yourself for its even stupider protocol. The GM diet was developed by the employees of a vehicle manufacturer company, General Motors in 1985. The diet does not account for calories or macro/micro-nutrients but is broken up into seven days, each with strict rules about which food groups you can consume. Here is what this diet looks like: The diet doesn't specify the maximum or minimum amount of food to be consumed each day. Day One Eat only fruit — any kind except bananas. Day Two Eat only vegetables in raw or cooked form. Limit potatoes to breakfast only. Day Three Eat only fruits and vegetables of any kind except bananas and potatoes. Day Four Consume only bananas and milk. Day Five Eat two 10-ounce (284-gram) portions of beef, chicken or fish. In addition to the meat, you may only eat 6 whole tomatoes. Vegetarians may replace meat with either brown rice or cottage cheese. Day Six Eat two 10-ounce (284-gram) portions of beef, chicken or fish. Vegetarians may replace meat with either brown rice or cottage cheese. Increase your water intake by two glasses to flush out extra uric acid. Day Seven Eat only brown rice, fruits, fruit juice, and vegetables. Surprisingly, this diet is also recommended by some dumb Registered Dieticians. And here is the problem: except day six & seven, you are only consuming carbohydrates or fibre on the majority of days. For optimal functioning of the human body carbs are just optional (this does not mean they are bad!) but protein and fats are critical, and this diet severely lacks both. Following this diet may result in weight loss due to the huge caloric deficit that is bound to happen, but it will also cause plenty of muscle loss and will make you feel miserable. And once you come off it, a lot of weight will also be regained. 3. Boiled Food Diet + No Sugar & Salt Diets © YouTube This is the holy grail of every bro scientist gym trainer, you go to them asking how to lose fat in the fastest way possible, and they will recommend: "eat only boiled food and refrain from using sugar and salt". Well, in a way, this works because you will begin to hate food so much that you will stop consuming it and inevitably lose weight. Coming to the point: Science has proven numerous times that the body is not concerned with the source but the nutrients. And the fundamental process behind every diet is energy balance i.e. if you eat more than you burn, you will gain weight and if you eat less than you burn you will lose weight. Thus following a diet like this, which gets you fed up in a few days, is a pure waste of time and energy. You did not get overweight in a few days or weeks, therefore do not expect to get fit in a few days or weeks. Invest in a trainer which can design a training and nutrition plan that is feasible as well as enjoyable for you. All the best for your fitness goals in the coming year!
  9. The Redmi Note 7 was launched earlier this month in China, and the phone's biggest feature that has been advertised is its durability. In order to prove their claims, the company released a video where the smartphone was put through a bunch of stress tests. The video shows employees stomping on the Redmi Note 7, throwing it down the staircase and also a man used it as a skateboard. © YouTube The first video below shows Redmi CEO Lu Weibing throwing the Redmi Note 7 down a staircase and it suffered multiple tosses yet did not suffer any bumps or scratches. Another user used the smartphone as a skateboard by sticking wheels with duct tape. Even in this scenario, the Redmi Note 7 did not suffer any scratches or any other form of damage. This was possible thanks to the phantom grade double-sided Corning Gorilla Glass 5 body that protects the smartphone from such ordeals. In terms of other specifications, the Redmi Note 7 has a dual 48-megapixel camera set up at the back, 4,000 mAh battery and a teardrop notch display. Redmi is now a separate sub-brand of Xiaomi and its first phone is the Redmi Note 7 that has already been launched in China. The Redmi Note 7 features a 6.3-inch Full HD+ (2340x1080 pixels) display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core SoC paired with 3GB, 4GB, and 6GB RAM options along with 32GB and 64GB storage options. © Redmi For more information on the Redmi Note 7 and the Redmi Note 7 Pro, you can check out all the details here.
  10. Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan starrer 'Simmba' turned out to be a bigger hit than anyone could have anticipated. The typical Rohit Shetty drama-action movie had a good storyline, a stellar star cast and of course, great music with 'Aankh Maarey' being a chartbuster now. Now, of course, the two actors are great performers and dancers but if Sunny Leone chooses to dance on your number then well, there is no competition at all. Sunny Leone and her husband Daniel Weber did their own rendition of 'Aankh Maarey' and well, let's just say, they killed any competition they could have had from Ranveer's dance moves.

The gorgeous actress is known for being one of the best dancers in Bollywood, and all her dance numbers so far have been a super hit. On the work front, Sunny is keeping very busy as she is prepping for the remake of the Punjabi super hit 'Jatt & Juliet' which will star Maniesh Paul opposite her.

  12. This is the story of a guy who ended up in a hospital bed suffering from tuberculosis due to random gym advices given by 'desi trainers'. But this is also the story of a guy who didn't give up and fought against all odds to make things work for him and became a successful fitness trainer with a great physique. Shubham started working out at the gym at a very early age of 15 years. Since he was a little overweight from childhood, he joined a gym near his house in a small town near Kolkata to get into shape. There weren't decent equipment in the gym, let alone an educated trainer. He still continued lifting weights in the gym, by looking at others and learning how they did it. After that, he came to Kolkata and joined a better gym which had decent equipment. However, the trainers and their advices were still the same. He was told to eat less and train more if he wanted to get in shape. Furthermore, he was told that the only way to build muscle was to use supplements and steroids. And since he couldn't afford any, he just ate a calorie deficit unstructured diet that was low in carbs and protein. He did lose a lot of weight by eating less and training more but ended up suffering from tuberculosis due to an unhealthy diet. After spending more than six months recovering from that ailment, he knew that he had to do something if he was serious about his health and fitness goals. Fitness Education After his ordeal, he decided to get proper education in fitness and do it himself. Though his parents didn't support him, he went ahead anyway and got a certification. This decision completely changed his outlook towards fitness. From A Recovering Patient To Six Packs After completing the certification, the first thing he did was to fix his nutrition. He made changes in his diet and workout according to his goals and decided to get back into shape in whatever time possible. He knew that it would take a long time but he was ready to put in the efforts. Since he was weight training from a couple of months, his body responded well. Diet Since his target was fat loss, he knew that there was no other way to get into shape except counting his macros. He followed a deficit of 500 calories per week and the total calorie intake was about 2400 calories a day with a macro breakdown of 140 grams of protein, 70 grams of fats and around 350 grams of carbohydrates. Workout Body recomposition is best achieved when you have a good combination of resistance training and cardio. Shubham also did the same. Cardio was a regular part of his workouts; however, he chose to do it outside the gym. His gym was around 4 kilometers from his house. So he used to run from his house to the gym and did the same while coming back. He was on the Push-pull-legs routine which looked like this. Monday and Thursday - Chest, shoulder and triceps Tuesday and Friday - back and biceps Wednesday and Saturday - legs and abdominal Sunday - rest
  13. When stories of the wars fought in human history started turning stale, film-makers decided to turn some real, some fictional accounts into unforgettable films. War films have inspired us, somehow made us more patriotic and even changed our perception towards those who suffered. War films transport us to an era that we have never witnessed; however, by the means of great storytelling, one can feel the terror of the bombings, the pain of the Holocaust and the joy of victories. In this post, we have listed the greatest war films that have ever been made: 1. Saving Private Ryan (1998) Steven Spielberg's esteemed project that bagged a gigantic five Academy Awards win is at the top of our list. 'Saving Private Ryan' is one of the most realistic war films ever made. The film is set up at the backdrop of Normandy invasion during World War II and the combat scenes of the D Day are one of the most expensive war scenes that have ever been shot in a war film. In the movie, Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) is on a mission to find Private James Ryan (Matt Damon), who happens to be the only surviving brother of the four brothers killed in the war. The film chronicles the journey of war heroes and how bravely they fight the bloodiest battle in human history. 'Saving Private Ryan' fills you with deep emotions, shakes you to the core and gives you a clear glimpse of what a war looks like. 2. Dunkirk (2017) Though Christopher Nolan's 'Dunkirk' snub at the 2018 Oscars jolted many, his World War II drama inspired by the 1940 evacuation of allied soldiers from the beaches of Dunkirk proved that Nolan is the master of all genres. When you see 'Dunkirk' you forget everything that is going around in the world outside the film. Shot on a large format film and released in 70mm projection, 'Dunkirk' instantly takes you to the war era and effortlessly makes you a part of it. While you tear up at the end, you do not only see the film as a mere spectator but as a witness, in a hope that the soldiers would see their way to home. When the war genre got almost saturated with run-of-the-mill-storytelling, Nolan breathed a fresh air by making 'Dunkirk' a masterpiece. 3. The Pianist (2002) Roman Polanski is now bereft of all the Oscars he earned in his entire lifetime, except the one he got for directing 'The Pianist'. The World War II drama based on the struggle and survival of Polish Jew musician Wladyslaw at the peak of the war is a powerful story of human resilience. Based on the autobiography of Wladyslaw Szpilman, the film pertinently narrates the horrors of the Holocaust. Adrien Broody's stint in the film got him huge critical acclaim ultimately making him the youngest Academy Award recipient in the Best Actor category. 'The Pianist' by all means is a simple yet pre-eminent depiction of a survivor's journey and how he manages to escape the Holocaust on the basis of his will to live. 4. Schindler's List (1993) In November 2018, Steven Spielberg's pièce de résistance 'Schindler's List' marked its 25th anniversary. Based on the world famous story of Oskar Schindler who saved twelve hundred Jews during the time of the Holocaust, the film bagged the Academy Award for Best Picture and also happened to be Liam Neeson's career-transforming performance. The film's black and white tone and a 72 days filming remained in talks for a long time. The film is also a cinematic marvel of its time and has remained one of the most accurate and heartbreaking films about the war. 5. Apocalypse Now (1979) Francis Ford Coppola's Vietnam War drama has got the war madness in it. Starring Marlon Brando, Robert Duvall, Martin Sheen, Frederic Forrest, Albert Hall, Sam Bottoms, Laurence Fishburne, and Dennis Hopper, the film is a sheer delight for war film aficionados. 'Apocalypse Now' is well-documented, hellish, and puts forth an epic saga. The film represents the brutalities of war with precision and with time the significance of the film has only increased. 'Apocalypse Now' somehow overpowers other war Vietnam War films including 'The Deer Hunter' and 'Platoon'. 6. The Deer Hunter (1978) Michael Cimino's valuable project took more time for completion and therefore the film turned out to be a three-hour long story. Starring Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep, Christopher Walken, John Savage, George Dzundza and John Cazale (in his final role), 'The Deer Hunter' is a story of three friends who went on to fight in the Vietnam War. This is one film that truly belongs to its actors. It has been pronounced culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant by the United States National Film Registry and went on to win five Academy Awards including the one for Best Picture. 'The Deer Hunter' is a gripping tale, one that can't be forgotten and aptly depicts the monstrosities of the Vietnam War. 7. Lawrence of Arabia (1962) Amidst a good range of films based on World War II, there exists one of the finest classics of all time. 'Lawrence of Arabia' is not only a World War I movie but one of the greatest films that have ever been made. Directed by David Lean, this is an epic historical drama film based on the life of T. E. Lawrence and chronicles his journey in the Arabian Peninsula during World War I. The film went on to win a total of seven Academy Awards including the one for Best Picture and Best Director. The film also gave Peter O'Toole an international recognition for his portrayal of T.E. Lawrence. 8. Platoon (1986) Oliver Stone's ambitious anti-war project starring Tom Berenger, Willem Dafoe, Charlie Sheen, Keith David, Kevin Dillion, John C. McGinley, Forest Whitaker, and Johnny Depp, is based on Stone's own experiences during the Vietnam War. The film earned Oliver Stone an Academy Award for Best Director and also huge critical acclaim for brilliantly writing his own story and ultimately turning it into a movie. The reality behind the film's very existence attracted large crowds to the theatres; people were moved to the core after witnessing how brilliantly the story unfolded. The achievement of 'Platoon' is seen to be of much greater value when seen in terms of the best Vietnam War films that have ever been made. 9. The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) In 1958, 'The Bridge on the River Kwai' swept seven Academy Awards including the one for Best Picture. Directed by David Lean, the film is a British-American war drama based on the novel Le Pont de la Rivière Kwaï (1952) written by Pierre Boulle. Actors William Holden, Jack Hawkins, Alec Guinness, and Sessue Hayakawa worked on the historic construction of the Burman Railways. When war heroes built a bridge across the Kwai River, a never seen before story certainly got the world's attention. The film chronicles a valiant tale and keeps power to move the viewers. The movie also became the 11th greatest British film of the 20th Century as per the British Film Institute. 10. Full Metal Jacket (1987) The last film in our list is a Stanley Kubrick production. 'Full Metal Jacket' narrates the journey of two privates of the U.S. Marine during the Vietnam War. The film depicts how under hard-bitten conditions, Joker (Matthew Modine ) and Pyle (Vincent D'Onofrio ) struggle to get through the boot camp, especially when they are met by an abusive drill instructor (R. Lee Ermey). The film received huge critical acclaim and also received an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.
  14. The first trailer of 'Spiderman: Far From Home' dropped a couple of days ago, and it was the perfect distraction from all the incessant worrying that we have been doing about the fate of literally everyone in 'Avengers: Endgame'. However, Tony Stark's absence from the trailer did not help, with everyone already crying about his death, which people think is quite evident after this trailer, when it's actually not. But, we all have been on the internet long enough to know that the only way people online deal with emotions or excitement is memes, every time, without fail. So, obviously, a huge new trailer is the perfect meme opportunity. From ignoring all the apparent clues about Tony's death to finding even better reactions to that hilarious Happy-Aunt May interaction, here's how Twitter reacted to the trailer. Before that, on an unrelated note, here's the international trailer with some extra scenes in case you haven't seen it yet. Now, back to the memes! Same energy.

  15. Anushka Sharma has mostly been associated with meaningful ad campaigns. Be it the Manyavar advertisements with her husband and Indian skipper Virat Kohli, or her long standing association with Pantene. We have also witnessed that Anushka has been very vocal about her stance on certain endorsements, and declining those that do not align with her personal ideologies. Be it adopting and openly promoting a vegan lifestyle or declining offers for fairness cream ads, Anushka has been selective about the brands she has associated herself with. Let goodness shine ! â¨â¨â¨ #AchchaiKiChamak @DS_SilverPearls #RajnigandhaPearls pic.twitter.com/JsoxvvA6iI — Anushka Sharma (@AnushkaSharma) January 14, 2019 Anushka took to Twitter earlier this week, and shared a short video snippet of her new commercial promoting a pan masala brand's product. Ever since Twitter has tormented the 'Zero' star with negative comments and trolled her for giving up on her said ethics. While some have called Anushka out on Twitter for promoting a brand that's responsible for numerous health risks amongst its consumers, others have simply come forward to share their disappointment with her. Here's what Twitter is saying: Won't this be surrogate advertising. Promoting a brand known for its banned product. ! wonder why on earth she need to endorse a tobacco brand and take a stand that it's for promotion of cardamom. — Inconviniencd Public (@sushovan03) January 14, 2019 लà¥à¤ à¤à¤¹à¤° à¤à¤¾ पà¥à¤°à¤à¤¾à¤° à¤à¤°à¤à¥ भॠशà¥à¤¹à¤°à¤¤ बà¤à¥à¤° रहॠहॠà¤à¤° हमॠà¤à¥à¤¨à¤à¤¾à¤° à¤à¤¹à¤¤à¥ हॠलà¥à¤ बिना à¤à¥à¤ à¤à¤¿à¤ हॠ— Satish Kumar (@esatish999988) January 14, 2019 Are nahi yaar.

  16. Everyone's reaction after watching the 'Spiderman: Far From Home' trailer - Everyone's reaction right after realizing Tony Stark isn't in the trailer. Yep, almost every person jumped to the conclusion that Tony Stark will die in 'Avengers: Endgame' and that's the reason we don't have Peter Parker's mentor in the trailer. Moreover, just like every single Marvel movie trailer, everyone's dissected it completely to find clues and easter eggs, and 'Spiderman: Far From Home' is under even more scrutiny since it will be the first MCU movie after 'Avengers: Endgame', a movie where we are going to see so many of our favourite characters come back to life and so many characters die. So obviously, people are looking for any clues they can find and the biggest one was Tony Stark's fate. We have been hearing for so long that Tony will actually die and not be a part of any MCU movie after the fourth Avengers, mainly because Robert Downey Jr's contract is up. The absence of Tony from the Spiderman trailer didn't help the case and people found even more instances that would point to the fact that Tony and RDJ are gone from MCU forever. But, all the points can be explained and I'm going to try my best to do it. Here are some things that everyone considers to be pointing to Tony's death so let's go debunking! 1. Tony Stark is missing from the trailer Of course, they won't put Tony in the trailer when it's coming out before 'Avengers: Endgame'. The secrecy that revolves around everything Avengers related is not itself a secret. Marvel is not stupid enough to put Tony in the trailer and basically spoil 'Avengers: Endgame'. 2. Pepper signed the cheque Pepper has been running Stark Industries for years, it's pretty obvious she'll sign all the cheques and not Tony. She's CEO, bitch. 3. Peter apparently looks at the Spiderman suit sadly No, he did not, he really did not. People thought Peter looked sad looking at his suit which was made by Tony, but honestly, the scene just shows him deciding to not take his suit along with him, not taking his suit 'far from home'. 4. Happy says “You're all alone” This is the dialogue that caused so many people to speculate that Happy is referring to Tony - or rather his absence - but it could be about anyone. It will probably be Happy just telling Peter that he's alone in Europe, and doesn't have any other superhero to help him. 5. Tony just can't die No, I'm not saying that he's immortal or something, but I'm just straight up refusing the fact that Tony's dead or will die, at least until it actually happens. The man has gone through hell these last 10 years, he deserves to finally have a normal life.
  17. Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus have found themselves in a bit of a sticky wicket, as their pursuit for the first title in the New Year is overshadowed by rage, protests and probably the most bizarre human rights violation in the history of football, as Saudi Arabia has banned 'women unaccompanied by men' to enter the football stadiums. As the reigning Serie A and Italian Cup champions Juventus prepare to go against A.C. Milan in tomorrow's Supercoppa Italiana final at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium, in Jeddah, Amnesty International, an NGO which works for the Human Rights all over the world, have requested the both of them to not participate in the contest at all. The request came from the NGO following the assassination of journalist and women's rights activist, Jamal Khashoggi. Le donne alla #SuperCoppaItaliana vanno allo stadio solo se accompagnate dagli uomini. Ma stiamo scherzando? I signori del #calcio vendano pure i diritti delle partite ma non si permettano di barattare i diritti delle donne! — laura boldrini (@lauraboldrini) January 3, 2019 When Serie A made public the information about some seats being available only to men and that women may only be allowed to sit in the 'Family' section of the stadium, it only added fuel to the fire. Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini showed his displeasure by calling the whole act “disgusting” and announced that he will not be watching the game. While no news from either of the teams about shunning the game is out yet, Saudi Arabia's decision to ban single women from stadiums cries for support from big influences like Juventus and A.C. Milan. Players like Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala, who are loved by millions from all around ought to feel a sense of responsibility towards their fans and their human rights. But sadly, Juventus defender Alex Sandro feels that “the Saudis have taken a step forward," allowing at least married women to come and watch the sport. He believes that “they have a different fan base…” and hopes to have a good final. Partial human rights mean no human rights at all.
  18. On days when our jawans are not fighting with all their might for our safety, they are just like any one of us, who love singing and dancing. Watching them showcase their skills and talent is a treat for us indeed. There are some movies which you can watch once or twice and then there are classics like 'Border', which you can never get bored with, no matter how many times you watch it. The movie's song 'Sandese Aate Hain' brings tears to our eyes, even today. Recently, we came across this video of a BSF Jawan singing that song, which is now going viral and speaks volumes about his exceptional talent and amazing singing skills. The jawan is seen singing the song beautifully, in what looks like a canteen as people continue to gather around him. मà¥à¤ à¤à¤ दिन à¤à¤à¤à¤à¤¾......à¤à¤¯ हिà¤à¤¦ð®ð³ Awesome voice of the @BSF_India solider.#FridayFeeling @gauravcsawant @majorgauravarya @DuttYogi @SunielVShetty @iamsunnydeol @TheSatishDua @atahasnain53 @AdityaRajKaul pic.twitter.com/YiXOlZowW8 — Anita Chauhan (@anita_chauhan80) January 11, 2019 Turns out the mystery soldier is Surinder Singh, who earlier appeared on Indian Idol 10 last year.

  19. Whenever I look back to my college days, what I remember the most is a lanky 50-kilo kid trying to hide from his bullies. They would call me names and this disturbed me to great lengths. Then I looked into my lifestyle and wasn't really surprised as to why I was so skinny. My activity levels were immensely low, and so was my appetite. The only activities I did were going to the college and coming back home. My diet involved 2 meals a day and some canteen snacks. That's about it. 15th of December 2016 was a remarkable day in my life, I saw an interview of Thakoor Anoop Singh on YouTube. This one video got me so inspired, that I joined a gym the following day. I come from a small town in South India, where we do not have a lot of people to guide us in the right direction. Improper exercise technique and ego lifting soon got me injured and I had to quit the gym for a while. But during this period I learned about fitness as much as I can from YouTube. Yash Sharma Fitness was a vital source to learn exercise techniques, bracing and how to lift heavy. I went back to the gym after a few weeks and decided to take it slow. No more ego lifting and I lifted according to my strength and focused on my technique. Gradually my strength and physique began to enhance. Further, I learned about correct nutrition from YouTube. And after bulking for more than a year, I decided to cut down and aimed to get as lean as possible. I also competed in Muscle-Mania 2018 for which I prepared for 3 months, relentlessly. This journey was awfully exhausting and taught me that bodybuilding is tougher mentally than it is physically. Being a student with limited funds, it was indeed challenging but I enjoyed every bit of it. Like oxygen and water, lifting weights has now become a necessity for me. I am studying to become a professional trainer alongside my college studies but more than the monetary aspect, I love the person I have become due to bodybuilding- disciplined, hardworking & committed. It is something only serious lifters can resonate with. I am very thankful to MensXP Health for allowing me to share my journey and reminiscing how far I have come.
  20. The Indian team may have done poorly in the first ODI against Australia in Sydney, and suffered a loss no fan is proud of. But that hasn't stopped skipper Virat Kohli to take out time from his schedule and have a good time with wife and actress Anushka Sharma. View this post on Instagram Days like these â¤ï¸ð¥° A post shared by AnushkaSharma1588 (@anushkasharma) on Jan 13, 2019 at 4:22am PST Anushka is currently in Australia with Virat, where the Indian cricket team is playing ODIs against the Australian team. However, post the recent historic test series win against Australia, the latest loss has rubbed cricket fans the wrong way. When Virat recently shared a picture with his wife on Twitter, in what looked like a pastoral countryside in Australia, cricket fans on the platform began to troll the guy in no time at all. ♥ï¸ pic.twitter.com/uLa7UwLvMX — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) January 13, 2019 While some shared their disappointment with the team's last performance, others advised Kohli to focus on his game instead of whiling away his time over less important things. Now, we are all aware of how lame and notorious Twitter can get when it comes to giving out their not-so-important opinions on others, and this time was no different. Twitter came out full force to remind Virat of the need of the hour, and here are a few tweets that were particularly hard.

Twitter has gone all out, and isn't really happy about the fact Virat and Anushka are making memories like any other couple in this world. They can't seem to look beyond the Indian skipper to acknowledge that Virat also happens to be a husband and has a life outside of the cricket field. Can we stop with the criticisms already please?
  21. It was my first year of Bachelors in 2014 when the fitness bug first bit me. At that time I was very skinny, weighing around 49kgs at 6 feet 2 inches tall. Bullying was just as regular as college. Friends, relatives and almost everybody I knew made me the butt of all jokes. This broke my heart and I decided to steer things around and answer the bullies. Getting into the gym was another struggle. The bullies came in the form of gym bros and desi trainers. I shut myself off from the loathing and focused on lifting. For three months, I hustled my way through the weight and had no idea about nutrition. This backfired and I gave up with a beat down mentality. In 2015, I resumed lifting but this time around, I was tricked into buying mass gainer by a desi trainer. As a rookie, I took his advice and spent around Rs 10,000 and bought 20 kilos of it. Over the course of the year I had gained nearly 20 kilos of weight. Now from a skinny fat dude, I was a fat dude. The trainer now asked me use fat burners. Luckily, I didn't. In 2017, I was expecting to get my weight down but I didn't see any results. Then I came in touch with GetSetGo Fitness' coach, Vishwa. I followed his posts on Instagram and impressed by his knowledge, I enrolled under his guidance. After 2 months of training with him, I was impressed with the progress I had made. I made it a point to not quit this time around. Nearly 12 weeks into his training, I got absolutely shredded. I used nothing but food and barely any supplements apart from multivitamins. Along with this, I also learned to create my own diet plans. At present, I am bulking. Fitness is all about understanding the science of nutrition and exercises and applying the right thing at the right time. It is a lifestyle. A never ending process that demands consistency!
  22. The CES (Consumer Electronic Show) has been a medium to show-off new and upcoming technology from all over the world. Hundreds of companies unveil their products, and it's one of the most happening days for a tech aficionado. This year, we've witnessed rollable TVs, 8K TVs, party-ready speakers, and even a foldable phone. The announcements establish a roadmap for the coming year, and with intense competition, every brand wants to make a mark. On the other hand, the tradeshow also gets a tonne of quirky gadgets that'll make you wonder “…wait, what?” Here's a list of the weirdest gadgets we've seen at CES 2019: 1. Lovot: © Mashable This robot from Japan has one mission- make you happy. It's designed by a startup called Groove X and is supposed to behave like a real living thing. It has a cute teddy bear-like body with cartoon eyes, and in the company's words, is built to “nurture people's capacity to love”. Lovot uses a video camera mounted on its head to recognise the face of its owner and to avoid collisions. It's for people who are lonely and need someone or something to talk to. Loneliness is a rising issue in Japan where people are isolating themselves from the outer world because they feel left out. Groove X hopes that the robots, which cost US$ 6000 (Rs 4,20,000) for a pair, can become companions for Japan's ageing population, but is also planning to release the devices in the US in the future. 2. Inubox: © Inubox Pet dogs constantly require your attention, especially when they are young or untrained. You need to take them out for nature's call periodically, and Inubox aims to simplify this task for you. Inubox is presenting itself as an all-in-one indoor toilet for dogs. It can sense when a dog has done its business, then automatically bag up the waste while cleaning off the platform. The waste processed by Inubox is put in a closed bag that can be disposed of easily. By wrapping up the waste in bags, Inubox is designed to make sure your house has no trace of the smell of waste. The expected retail price of the gadget is US$ 1,200 (Rs 84,500). 3. LavvieBot: © LavvieBot Why should Dogs have all the fun? LavvieBot is an automated cat litter box that can clean up waste and refill the litter when the time comes. You'll have to clean up the machine every few weeks, but it helps in reducing the number of times cleaning has to be done. Instead of manually sifting litter every day, the LavvieBot has a self-scooping mechanism which scoops waste out of the main box at an interval of your choosing. It also comes with an app that claims to be able to monitor your cat's health by keeping track of its litter box use and weight changes. 4. Foldimate: © Foldimate Year after year we keep seeing the return of folding machines that intend to eliminate the daunting task of folding your clothes. Israeli tech start-up Foldimate has unveiled a robot that's capable of folding all sorts of clothing with minimal assistance. FoldImate will also fold standard size towels and pillowcases. Users simply feed their clothes into the opening near the top of the product before they appear neatly folded from a hatch near the bottom of the machine. The Foldimate will go on sale later this year and is expected to cost about $US 1,000 (Rs 70,000). 5. Lumen: © Lumen We've all wondered, what should we have dinner? It often becomes a difficult task to decide considering the number of options we have. To ease this, Lumen is a smartphone app that determines what foods you should eat based on the results of a breathalyser test. It also tells people things like how well they are digesting food or burning calories. The firm says this provides a way of monitoring a person's metabolism - the chemical processes that, among other things, convert food into energy. The breathalyser is available for purchase at a market price of US$ 250 (Rs 17,500). 6. Ovis Suitcase: © ForwardX Nobody likes to carry around luggage when travelling, especially when airports are getting bigger and bigger. To ease out transits, ForwardX has launched the Ovis suitcase that moves on its own. Unlike standard luggage, the Ovis Suitcase uses self-driving technology and algorithms to side-follow users anywhere, including airports, city streets, and hotels. On escalators and stairs, users can place their hand on the Ovis Suitcase handle to switch it to manual mode. Users can also wear a band that notifies the bag of your location and an in-built GPS module will always keep a track of your bag. The suitcase will be available for US$ 799 (Rs 56,000) from the second half of 2019. 7. Little Cat: © Gizmodo This another product is made, especially for cats. The Little Cat is a pet treadmill that tempts your cat onto its rotating ring using LED lights. Like a hamster chasing food, your cat then pads along the inside of the device. The gadget is made by South Korean company Pet Ding. The company intends to make your cat healthier by giving it the option to exercise even when you're not around. Though, it carries a hefty price tag of US$ 1,800 (Rs 1,27,000). H
  23. With the Australian Open - first Grand Slam of the year - just days away, the tennis fans and pundits across the globe were busy picking the probable contenders who could taste success early in 2019. But, on 11th January, the tennis fraternity suffered a massive blow after Andy Murray - one of the most popular and influential players of his generation - announced that he will retire from professional tennis this year. A former World No.1 and three-time Grand Slam champion, Murray has been hampered by a hip injury since his defeat to Sam Querrey in the Wimbledon quarterfinal in 2017. Since then, he has struggled to regain fitness after undergoing surgery a year ago. Breaking the news in a tearful press conference, the 31-year-old admitted: "I have been struggling for a long time. I have been in a lot of pain for about 20 months now. I've pretty much done everything that I could to try and get my hip feeling better and it hasn't helped loads. I am in a better place than I was six months ago but I am still in a lot of pain. It has been tough". The start to Andy Murray's press conference was very emotional ð¢ pic.twitter.com/hObwoj71uo — #AusOpen (@AustralianOpen) January 11, 2019 "During my training block, I spoke to my team and told them I can't keep doing this. I need to have an endpoint because I'm just playing with no idea of when the pain will stop. Wimbledon is where I would like to stop playing but I am not certain I am able to do that. I'm going to play [in Melbourne]. I can still play to a level. Not a level that I'm happy playing at. But it's not just that. The pain is too much really and I don't want to continue playing that way," Murray said. Driven to tears as he shared his ordeal, the Scot left his fans shell-shocked when he revealed that such is the extent of his pain that he cannot put socks on without struggling. Overcome by emotion, the tennis star briefly had to leave the room full of journalists before returning and confirming that his career could end as soon as next week. "I spoke to my team and I told them I can't keep doing this. I needed to have an end point..." -Andy Murray#AusOpen pic.twitter.com/wLEplbKXOV — #AusOpen (@AustralianOpen) January 11, 2019 Asked if the Aussie Open could be his last ever tournament, Murray admitted: "Yes I think there's a chance of that for sure because I'm not sure I'm able to play through the pain for another four or five months. I have a severely damaged right hip. Having the operation last year was to give it the best possible chance of being better. I can play with limitations, but having the limitations and the pain is not allowing me to enjoy competing or training". Murray now has to confront another surgery to repair the damage he incurred nearly a dozen years at the top of the game. "I have an option to have another operation, which is a little bit more severe than what I've had before in having my hip resurfaced, which will allow me to have a better quality of life and be out of pain," he revealed. "That's something I'm seriously considering right now. Some athletes have had that and gone back to competing but there's obviously no guarantees with that and the reason for having an operation like that is not to return to professional sport, it's just for a better quality of life," Murray added. © Reuters Owing to his troubles, Murray played just 14 times at tour level in 2018 and just two of those matches were at Grand Slams, both coming at the US Open. His heart-breaking announcement comes after he was convincingly defeated in a practice session with the World No. 1 Novak Djokovic on 10th January, wherein the Serbian won 10 out of the 12 games. He has also slipped down to 230 in the world rankings and, now, faces the daunting task of overcoming 22nd seed Roberto Bautista Agut in the first round of Australian Open on 14th January. For a man who stands tall alongside Fred Perry as Britain's greatest ever to grace the game, Murray's career might have reached a sad end, but the Scot will always be remembered for his achievements in an era where he competed with icons such as Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. Thus, there was no surprise to see his tearful announcement prompting a volley of tributes, fond recollections of a historic career and encouragement to serve up a fitting farewell (likely at Australian Open, and if another surgery goes according to plan, then probably at Wimbledon later this year). If this is true, I tip my cap to @andy_murray ! Absolute legend. Short list of best tacticians in history. Unreal results in a brutal era ...... Nothing but respect here. I hope he can finish strong and healthy https://t.co/FZbwmvRC2r — andyroddick (@andyroddick) January 11, 2019 Andy, just watched your conference. Please don't stop trying. Keep fighting.

  24. Manchester City, a club whose limits can never be judged. Four days ago, they proved their bench strength when they defeated Rotherham with a splendid margin of 7-0 in the FA Cup third round. And just when people thought that was it, they decided to take their game a notch up in the semi-final (first leg) of the Football League Cup, where they showcased their blistering attack in a win against Burton by 9-0, which has almost cemented their position in the final of the tournament. This was a game where Pep Guardiola didn't play his actual squad and still managed a win like this, so now we can only imagine what could have happened if Aguero would have played. Coming back to the game, the scoring was kickstarted by Kevin De Bruyne in the 5th minute of the game, followed by Gabriel Jesus, who later scored four goals in the game. Other than them, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker and Riyad Mahrez also contributed in the Cityzens humongous win. No doubt all the goals that were scored were equally important, but let's look the top 5 goals from the game: 1. Zinchenko The best goal of the game came as a mistake by the defender, O. Zinchenko, where while intending a cross to Jesus, he looped the ball over Burton's keeper, Collins, and got his name on the scoresheet. The best mistake one could wish for. And later, the basketball dunk celebration was in itself a unique one. 2. De Bruyne Kevin De Bruyne, known for his bullet shots outside the box, took everyone by surprise when he opened the scoring with a header from an assist provided by David Silva in the 5th minute of the game. De Bruyne simply got between two Burton defenders and heads David Silva's deep delivery out of Collins' reach into the bottom corner from a distance of eight yards. 3. Gabriel Jesus (57') Right back after the half time, City came up with another wonderful attack which they later converted into a goal. The real play began when Mahrez played a one-two with David Silva and dinked the ball into the air for Jesus to direct the header into the bottom corner. The Brazilian couldn't find a better way to complete his hat-trick. 4. Gabriel Jesus- (65') Being the star of the night, Jesus had already proven his worth and with his fourth goal, he might just have cemented his place in the permanent playing XI. Talking of the goal, an accurate lob ball by Mahrez in the middle straight towards Sane on the left wing, who after brilliantly controlling it in the box, cut back and picked out Jesus who again tapped it in for the goal. 5. Kyle Walker Sometimes, a simple tap in goal can also look so gracious, just like this one. Just when everything seemed quiet for a while, Mahrez drove himself forward and squared the ball to right-back Walker, who steered it past Collins for his first goal of the match. City made it look so easy, maybe because it was actually easy as by that time, Burton's defence had just given up.
  25. The 44-year-old record for taking the most number of wickets during a single Ranji Trophy season, which resided in the name of former Delhi captain and Indian cricketer, Bishan Singh Bedi, was broken by Bihar's Ashutosh Aman when he sent Manipur's Sagatpam Singh packing to the locker room with an lbw. This wicket was Aman's 65th, which was one more than Bedi's record of 64 outs that he had achieved during the 1974-74 season after moving to Delhi in 1968. Bihar's left arm spinner Ashutosh Aman now has 65 wickets this #RanjiTrophy season. This is now the most by any bowler in a season surpassing the previous record of 64 wickets of Bishan Singh Bedi in 1974-75. — Mohandas Menon (@mohanstatsman) January 9, 2019 But, who is Ashutosh Aman? Born in 1986, Aman is an Air Force employee hailing from the holy city of Gaya, Bihar. The 32-year-old made a bold decision to begin playing domestic cricket for his home state before the 2018-19 season. After making his List A debut in the Vijay Hazare Trophy in 2018, Aman made his first first-class cricket appearance in 2018-19 Ranji Trophy season against Uttarakhand in Dehradun on 1st November 2018 with a brilliant 4-wicket performance and being the most economical bowler for Bihar with a 1.62 average. While tallying impressive 5-wicket hauls in both the innings against Sikkim in only his third Ranji match, he put the critics on notice with yet another quality performance against Nagaland with seven and five scalps in the first and second innings respectively. Aman eventually became one of the fastest bowlers to bag 50 wickets in the history of domestic cricket. "When I had around 50 wickets, that's when my teammates told me that there's a record that's there to be broken," Aman told ESPNcricinfo. "That's when I pushed myself. I told myself that since I've come so close, then if I put some extra effort, then I could perhaps break the record." Playing since he was a teenager, Aman had been struggling to get opportunities to participate in first-class cricket which was something he dreamt since forever. After a very successful Vijay Hazare Trophy run, Aman finally got a call to play for Bihar in Ranji under the captaincy of Pragyan Ojha, who just like Aman, is a left-arm spinner and guided the debutant throughout the season. "Pragyan Ojha bhaiya is a simple and reachable man," Aman expressed to ESPNcricinfo. "He's an India player, such a big name, so we remained slightly shy. But he's a professional, talks to everyone daily, and now we've come together very well. Despite Bihar not making it to the quarter-finals, Ashutosh Aman's record of 68 wickets is one of the greatest individual achievements anyone could attain in domestic cricket and will be a highlight for the state's 2018-19 journey.
