  1. The International Shooting Sport Federation's Shooting World Cup is currently in action in Munich, Germany and the Indian contingent is burning it up in Deutschland, ahead of the rest of the participating countries, including China, with three gold medals on the fourth day of the tournament. The first medal for Team India in the German city came at the hands of Apurvi Chandela, who outscored Chinese shooters Luyao Wang and Hong Xu in the women's 10m Air Rifle final with a 633.0 points in the qualifiers and 251.0 points in the final. .@apurvichandela, what game & what spirit! You have taken Indian shooting miles ahead by winning Gold in 10m air rifle at the ISSF Shooting World Cup. Congratulations on winning your second gold of the year! To many more! Keep making India proud.ð®ð³ pic.twitter.com/2XOybs2O5X — Rajyavardhan Rathore (@Ra_THORe) May 27, 2019 Despite the unfortunate elimination of the national favourite in Manu Bhaker after a double weapon malfunction in the seventh series, it was Rahi Sarnobat who held the fort for the Indian contingent on the third day and went on to score perfect 5s in the eighth and ninth series to end her run with a total of 37 points which got her the gold in the women's 25m pistol event. Rahi Sarnobat wins GOLDð¥ in #ISSFMunichWC in Women's 25m Pistol event. She earned a quota as well for India in #TokyoOlympics. Manu Bhaker will be devastated as her pistol malfunctioned at the wrong time when she was looking good for 2nd quota.@ISSF_Shooting @OfficialNRAI pic.twitter.com/0ihycNVdac — ð®ð³ Soumya Sarkar ð®ð³ (@SarkarSpeaking) May 27, 2019 Everyone present at the event however, was in awe of the 17-year-old Saurabh Chaudhary who in a brilliant performance of precision and focus won the gold in the men's 10m Pistol event while breaking both the junior and senior world records in the process. 17-yr-old Saurabh Chaudhary wins Goldð in 10m Air Pistol Event of Shooting World Cup (Munich). Broke his own world record with 246.3 points in the final (previous record 245 pts). Congrats champ. ðâð pic.twitter.com/V7sUXf9qcO — Sir Jadeja fan (@SirJadeja) May 27, 2019 Other than the fact that these young shooters are achieving success at the world level and dominating the shooting sports fraternity worldover, the reason why acknowledging their efforts is a lot more crucial that a lot of people think. While the final moment heroics of Rahi Sarnobat in the World Cup in Munich, got her a spot in the Indian contingent for Tokyo Olympics 2020, other shooters like Bhaker, Chaudhary and Chandela are also extremely likely to join her in the quest for bagging as many medals for their nation at the greatest spectacle on sports on earth. These sportspersons decided to do something different. In a country of cricket craving people, they decided to achieve greatness in something which is not that mainstream and have been doing it on a constant basis. Even though the ICC World Cup 2019 is just around the corner and the entire nation is rooting for the Men in Blue to win their third World Cup title, all we request for is a small amount of your appreciation for these athletes too.
  2. Computex 2019 is currently underway, which means it's time for us to check out some cool new hardware products. After AMD's new chipset announcement, now ASUS has decided to turn up the heat with some kickass products. The company launched a ton of products today, however, it's new “Edition 30” ZenBook laptop is what caught our attention. So, ASUS is celebrating its 30-year-anniversary with this new special edition laptop called the ASUS ZenBook Edition 30. Before we talk a bit more about the product itself, let's just take a moment to appreciate how awesome the laptop looks - © YouTube ASUS The new ASUS ZenBook Edition 30, as you can see, sports a white leather lid cover and an 18-karat rose gold logo, which resembles Star Trek's Starfleet insignia, no? According to ASUS, every piece of leather used to make these laptops have been hand selected, and each panel cover is meticulously sewed by a master tailor. Yes, it sounds like overkill, but hey, it's a limited edition product. Internally, the ZenBook Edition 30 is powered by Intel's 8th Gen Core i7 processor coupled with up to 16GB of RAM and PCIe SSD storage. For graphics, the laptop uses Nvidia's GeForce MX250 discrete GPU. It sports a 13-inch display on the front with minimal bezels. With a 95-per cent screen-to-body ratio, ASUS says this is the world's smallest 13-inch laptop. ASUS is also making special accessories for this laptop. There's a pearl white mouse and a leather sleeve, both of which look equally good. Sadly, ASUS won't tell us when the laptop will go on sale and for how much, so you can't really buy it just yet. Even once it's up for grabs, we're sure it's not going to be cheap.
  3. Less than a month ago, when Gomathi Marimuthu stood atop the Asian Athletics Championships podium after winning the gold medal in the 800-m race in Doha, Qatar, she had a nation of more than 1.3 billion people standing behind her in support. Her story, full of pain and agony, inspired people from all over the world. The tales of her late father, sacrificing his diet just so his daughter could get the nourishment to one day represent India in an international event and make the nation proud, reached every street, every gully of the country and garnered support both financially and emotionally. "When I used to do sports, my father had a leg ailment and he was unable to walk. He had a two-wheeler and that was a big deal for us back then. We did not have good bus facility to go to the city, there was no electricity in my town and the roads weren't good either," the athlete had said in a press conference after the win. "If I woke up at 4 a.m., I could catch the 4.30 bus. So my father would wake me up at 4, sharp, putting an alarm. If my mother was not feeling well, my father only would give me water, boil milk... all these things he would only do," she added. However, her legacy may be in great trouble after the 30-year-old was tested positive in a doping test with a banned steroid at the Asian Athletics Championships in April and now, a four-year-long suspension from the tracks is staring at Marimuthu in the face. © Reuters It is believed that Gomathi was tested positive for yet another doping test almost a month ahead of Doha Asians and during the Federation Cup but the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) seemed to make no news of it. “We have zero tolerance to doping. As far as we are concerned, she is immediately suspended provisionally. She has the right to get her 'B' sample tested. If she is innocent and her 'B' sample is okay, we take her back, otherwise, straight away she is suspended for four years,” says Adille Sumariwalla, the AFI president. “We tested all those who were not in the national camp when they came here for the Federation Cup but the results came late,” said chief national coach Bahadur Singh. “That is also one reason why we have confirmatory trials for the non-National campers.” If Marimuthu does send her 'B' sample for testing and if they also turn out to be positive, not only will the athlete be suspended for four years but she will also be stripped off of her Asian medal, taking away one of three gold medals from the Indian contingent.
  4. The 2019 Asian Championships have been the true testament of pure grit and the will to do anything to bring home the greatest honour any athlete can give to their country while sticking to their game, the gold medal. The inflow of medals through the tournament have also made these athletes finally get an opportunity to share and discuss their struggles and inspirational stories to motivate their fellow countrymen to do great things. We have had people like Gomathi Marimuthu, who, under extreme poverty and with absolutely no aid from the government, was able to bag the Asian championship gold medal in the 800-m race, only on the basis of her father's unconditional support and her own conviction. And now, there's the story of Arti Arun, a power-lifter who continues to work as a dental surgeon through the day in order to support her career as an athlete. Representing India on the biggest platforms all over the world, bringing home the gold and even spending more than a lakh of rupees from her own pocket for the same, has brought no support to her from the government. On Monday, according to an ANI tweet, Arun slammed the governing authorities for letting her down because of the lack of support she got from her political representatives even after she did something so honourable and prestigious for her nation. Arti Arun, Dental Surgeon&Power-lifter: After winning gold medal in Asian Power-lifting Championship in Hong Kong. I felt let down, I represented India, haven't been appreciated for it. Spent around Rs 1,50,000* from my earnings. Haven't got any support from govt. #TamilNadu https://t.co/GrLkw2v3tf — ANI (@ANI) May 6, 2019 Arun also raised some very important and heartbreaking concerns about the future of athletes like power-lifters in India. Arti Arun, Dental Surgeon & Power-lifter from Chennai: How long can I continue to spend so much? So many power-lifters go unrecognised. #TamilNadu pic.twitter.com/lX6a1ARjgo — ANI (@ANI) May 6, 2019 Why is it that only after a sportsperson has accomplished something that they finally get the opportunity to ask for support, financially or otherwise? Imagine how humiliating and demotivating it must feel to be celebrated for achieving brilliance in a sport in one country and being treated as a useless tool in your own. How can you expect more and more medals in every Asian Championships, every Commonwealth games and every Olympics when the initial commitment is not made to the athletes, to promote their desire to win, to support their dreams and turn them into reality?
  5. We talk about things like the athletes' determination that takes them places. And if we are feeling really generous, we might touch upon the contributions of their coaches and the equal amount of work their have put in behind the success of their apprentice. Having said that, ever since I covered the stories of Special Olympians like Dinal Jain and Ankush Saha for a dedicated docu-series: 'Beyond Victory' , I realised exactly how important it is to let the world know about the contributions of the parents of the sportspersons who made the nation proud by excelling in their sport of choice. It is imperative that their role, their sacrifices for the betterment of their talented children, are highlighted. Why? Because of stories like this: When the 30-year-old, 800-m Asian Athletics Championships gold medal winner, Gomathi Marimuthu stepped onto the podium to embrace her win and the recognition to go with it, the only thing that was probably going through her mind was gratitude. Congrats #GomathiMarimuthu You make us proud pic.twitter.com/TaCGAR5wRh — Naveen.M (@NaveenFilmmaker) April 23, 2019 Gratitude for her late father, who did everything within his capabilities and then some, to watch his daughter realise her dreams but could not be around to experience the joy and excitement when she finally did. After winning the Asian gold, Marimuthu went down the memory lane, remembering all the hardships her family had to go through on a daily basis just to make her better at what she wanted to do, by a tiny margin than how she was the previous day. "When I used to do sports, my father had a leg ailment and he was unable to walk. He had a two-wheeler and that was a big deal for us back then. We did not have good bus facility to go to the city, there was no electricity in my town and the roads weren't good either," said the athlete in a press conference after the win. "If I woke up at 4 a.m., I could catch the 4.30 bus. So my father would wake me up at 4, sharp, putting an alarm. If my mother was not feeling well, my father only would give me water, boil milk... all these things he would only do." "I miss my father. Since I was into sports, and we didn't have much food, he kept aside some for me and ate cattle feed for himself. I can never forget that one day,” she said as tears rolled down her cheeks. "If only my father was around today, I consider him to be like God." Look at this incredible run! Gomathi Marimuthu of India won 800m Gold at Asian Championships in Doha. Sadly no one to even hug/congratulate this 30-yr-old daughter of farmer from a village near Tiruchi. She picks & waves the Indian Flag herself. That is patriotism! Jai Hind!! pic.twitter.com/VqTkJJ3dLQ — Lt Gen Satish Duað®ð³ (@TheSatishDua) April 25, 2019 Very little to no food, bad transportation facilities, health and financial issues at home, no electricity but sheer determination to become better every single day and a Gold medal to prove it. That's Gomathi Marimuthu's story and her father's legacy and it could not have been any better.
  6. Anand Ahuja barely needs any introduction, but let us do a formal one anyway. Yes, he is Sonam Kapoor's husband, but that's not all. He is one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country, who is the owner of the street label 'Bhane', and also the co-owner of 'VegNonVeg' - a multi-brand sneaker store. The 35-year-old entrepreneur's sophisticated style game is noteworthy, and his love for sneakers is infectious. Anand grew up playing basketball, and the culture of sneakers has always been heavily associated with the sport. In 2016, Anand teamed up with Abhineet Singh and Emilia Bergmans, and started India's first multi-brand sneaker store - VegNonVeg. Now, they have collaborated with the celebrated Italian Sports Brand, FILA, and have come up with a limited edition sneaker called the 'Masala Mindblower'. MensXP interacted with Anand Ahuja, as he added another feather to his hat. Talking about the collaboration, Anand said, "VegNonVeg turned three this summer. When we had started, it was all about exploring the market in India in terms of sneakers, and the whole culture associated it. We were always sure that we wanted to make shoes especially for the people here, and that precisely was the idea behind wanting every person to have a 'Masala Mindblower' in their closet." © Anand Ahuja Anand is of the opinion that sneakers have slowly been creeping up in the mainstream style consciousness of India, which we completely agree with. "India is extremely diverse in terms of fashion statements, and sneakers perhaps constitute the only element of fashion that is versatile enough to fit into every domain. We have been very fortunate to get a chance to have had collaborated with FILA, and we're really excited to be honest. It worked out beautifully. We feel that this is only the start, and we have a lot of other brands coming in now." said Anand. © Anand Ahuja Further into the conversation, we asked him about the fashion statement he made by famously wearing sneakers at his wedding reception. While some thought of it as a gutsy fashion move, some went ahead and made 'faux pas' memes out of it, some called it an avant garde statement, while the rest blatantly called it plain funny. We, however, found it extremely edgy because it's not easy to pull off sneakers with a traditional outfit, especially since this was something absolutely unheard of in terms of the mainstream fashion consciousness in India. On being asked about his reaction to the comments and memes floating around, he chucked, "Yes, I read the comments and they were really funny. But people wearing sneakers on occasions has been a trend for quite a while now, you know? We are not creating the culture, it's already there. We are just representing it. I just happened to do it at a place where it got more attention, obviously, because of Sonam. However, everyone liked the fact that I did something different. Even Abhineet (co-owner of VegNonVeg) was wearing sneakers all the time during the wedding functions. I wore it and somehow it became a thing. I had no idea about it. I have been doing it for a while now, but it was anything but a well thought out or a voluntary move with the motive 'let me show something or say something with that'. It's just who I am." With the sneaker culture gaining substantial momentum in the commercial Indian stylescape, the competition is also growing by leaps and bounds, every passing day. The market for sneakers has grown tremendously. Talking about the competition in the shoe sector, Anand said, "The biggest goal for us for now, even before holding our own in the competition, is to encourage the brands to get their best to India. FILA is doing a great job. Thankfully, this collaboration has transformed into a great opportunity for us to prove that Indians appreciate the sneaker culture." © Anand Ahuja When it comes to Anand's conspicuous yet understated sartorial sense, it's a mix of both formal and casual. Be it super sharp suits or denim on denim, Anand slays every aesthetic with his signature inimitable edge. On being asked about the style icons he looks up to, he said, "I have always liked David Beckham's style, even when I was growing up. I also love Anil Kapoor's style game, because he looks as dapper in suits as he looks cool in casuals. I would like to take a little bit of credit here, for pushing AK into wearing sneakers. Harsh and I always try getting him into sneakers, and as it turns out, he rocks it way better than we do. When it comes to stylish men, I think they deserve a spot right at the top." View this post on Instagram @giorgioarmani thanks for sharing your day with @sonamkapoor and I today! ••• cc @genesis_luxury @gqindia @abhilashatd @thehouseofpixels A post shared by anand s ahuja (@anandahuja) on Sep 23, 2018 at 1:13pm PDT Before signing off, we asked him about the two fashion trends he doesn't agree with, and thinks should completely disappear from the scene. "I personally have never loved the chunky shoe trend, but yes, some people really do carry it well. That perhaps is one, and the second one is not really a fashion trend, so to say, but more of an approach to fashion. Don't try too hard, and just keep it simple. One can look absolutely stylish wearing basics such as black denims and white, black, or navy tees or shirts. You can also be very comfortable, apart from looking fashionable, if you wear sneakers with it. What I'm trying to say is men can thrive on basics all the time, while looking great."
  7. “It ain't over until the fat lady sings,” is probably the weirdest proverb to describe the latest feat achieved by the 25-year-old Indian Wrestler, Bajrang Punia who switched gears in the last few moments of his match against Kazakhstan's Sayatbek Okassov in the finals of Asian Championships in the 65kg category in Xi'an, China. Ever since the world champion Takuto Otoguro decided not to participate for the championships, all eyes were fixed on him, with a nation backing his journey, hoping to see him return to the land with a gold. His confidence and athleticism during the championships too dictated his form and with the way he was negating his competition on his journey to the final, the gold looked to be quite within his grasp, until he went through a real battle against the Kazakh. Struggling on the mat against Okassov initially, Punia was trailing his opponent 7-2. His agility and a solid defense were proving to be overwhelming for the Indian warrior but it was also making his exhaust a lot more quickly. It was only in the final few seconds that the Haryana-fame decided to turn things around in his favour when he launched a quick attack on the Kazakh's legs followed by a three-move combo, collating a total of 10 points in the final minute, winning the gold in the process. à¤à¤ª सबà¤à¥ पà¥à¤¯à¤¾à¤° à¤à¤° à¤à¤¶à¥à¤°à¥à¤µà¤¾à¤¦ सॠà¤à¤² #AsianChampionship2019 मà¥à¤ सà¥à¤µà¤°à¥à¤£ पदठà¤à¥à¤¤ पाया... à¤à¤ª सबसॠवादा हॠà¤à¤¿ à¤à¤à¥ भॠà¤à¤ª सबà¤à¥ निराश न à¤à¤°à¥à¤à¤à¤¾ à¤à¤° "à¤à¤²à¤à¤ªà¤¿à¤" मà¥à¤ भॠ"सà¥à¤µà¤°à¥à¤£ पदà¤" लानॠà¤à¥ लिठà¤à¤¡à¤¼à¥ मà¥à¤¹à¤¨à¤¤ à¤à¤°à¥à¤à¤à¤¾à¥¤ à¤à¤ªà¤¨à¤¾ पà¥à¤¯à¤¾à¤° à¤à¤° à¤à¤¶à¥à¤°à¥à¤µà¤¾à¤¦ यà¥à¤¹à¥ बनायॠरà¤à¥à¥¤ à¤à¤¯ हिà¤à¤¦ð®ð³ pic.twitter.com/tSmoEDlQG3 — Bajrang Punia (@BajrangPunia) April 24, 2019 Bajrang's greatest assets leading to this moment were probably his endurance and strength. According to his coach, Shako Bentinidis, while other athletes get tired and become slow as a match progresses, Punia evaluates his opponents and gets better with time. “The longer a bout goes on, the better are his chances to win it,” Bentinidis has said before the team had left for the tournament. Such a heroic comeback deserved recognition and his Indian fans were more than generous with the appreciations on Twitter: WHAT AN INCREDIBLE COMEBACK.

  8. Fitness enthusiasts have always been crazy to discover a new supplement in the market that will help them with those 'magical' results that they are looking for. The same old supplement launches with a new name and a new tagline, these enthusiasts can then be seen rushing to the supplement stores and try these latest products in the market. However, this is where they are wrong. The real results will not come from supplements; they will come with some real nutrition and some real hardcore training in the gym. Thus, I am not going to propagate yet another new supplement launched in the market, but I am just going to tell you about the 3 supplements that can help you in your journey of fitness: 1. Creatine Monohydrate (c) Getty A well-researched supplement out there in the market for decades; creatine monohydrate works wonders for natural lifters. It wouldn't be wrong to say that it is the best alternative for steroids for natural lifters. Time and again studies have suggested that creatine monohydrate helps with strength as well as hypertrophy in trained athletes. You can either load it with a higher dose or just take a maintenance dose of 3 to 5 grams daily. I would recommend a maintenance dose as it is a little easy on your stomach. Loading creatine with high doses may give cramps and diarrhoea to a few people. The best thing about creatine is that it is one of the cheapest supplements available in the market and available in almost all the big brands. Another factor that makes it important to supplement creatine from an outside source is that it is very difficult to consume the desired level of creatine from natural food sources like chicken and fish. You will have to consume kilos of non-vegetarian food daily to fulfil the desired quantity of creatine from natural foods. Apart from the muscle building benefits, creatine monohydrate has shown well-documented research on brain function and memory. 2. Vitamin D (c) Getty Almost 80 per cent, if not less of the total population of India has a deficiency of vitamin D. In my own experience, I have never seen a blood report of my client whose vitamin D levels were sufficient or even at the margin. Almost all of them have extremely low levels of vitamin D when they come to me initially. Ideally, in India, we should be getting enough sun exposure as the whole country gets enough sunlight throughout the year. However, we deliberately avoid sun exposure worrying too much about the skin tanning issue. Low levels of vitamin D is associated with decreased athletic performance, lethargy, decrease testosterone production and various other issue that have an impact on your health and performance. Thus, it is smart to include a vitamin D supplement in your daily routine. If you think that the multi-vitamin that you are already consuming would do the needful, you are wrong. That multi-vitamin would not even have half the daily recommended dosage of vitamin d in total. Therefore, supplement a vitamin D pill separately from your multi-vitamin pills is a smart move. 3. Fatty Acids (c) Getty Majority of the cooking oils used to prepare food for human consumption is loaded with Omega 6's. The human body does need omega 6 as well but only in a limited quantity. High intake of omega 6's in the diet is the root cause of inflammation and consequently heart disease as well. Sufficient amount of omega 3's in the body will help in decreasing the omega 6 levels as well. Omega 3 helps your body with stronger joint as well as immunity. This will eventually lead to better performance as well. Though fatty fish is a good source of omega 3, it is good to include an omega-3 supplement to meet the desired quantity of daily intake of omega 3.
  9. In the world of sports, more often than not, age tends to catch up with some of the best in business. In the past, we've seen many athletes struggling to replicate success in the later stages of their respective careers. Their bodies are no longer agile and it eventually affects their mindset, resulting in unfavourable performances. But, there is one athlete who is giving old age a run for its money and rapidly proving that determination and hard work is all you need to succeed in sports. At 103, centenarian Man Kaur recently sent shockwaves across the sports fraternity by bagging a World Masters gold. Plying her trade in the shot put event, Kaur secured a gold-medal finish at the coveted World Masters Athletics Meet in Torun, Poland. © Twitter The tournament, that also involves events like track and field, cross country and road running, is specifically designed to test the limits of athletes above 35 years of age. It was at this event where Kaur clinched the yellow metal with a best effort of 2.13 metres. "I want to win more. I feel very happy after winning. The government has not given me anything, but it doesn't matter as I just want to win, because winning gives me happiness," Kaur was quoted as saying by TOI. Despite bagging gold, Kaur isn't satisfied, just as yet. She now aims to break the world record, which is 2.77 metres - currently held by America's Julia Hockings. "I want to set the new world record in future," she said. This Sikh woman is 102-years-old and still smashing running records. Now stop making excuses and follow Man Kaur's footsteps! ðµð¾ððð½‍âï¸ pic.twitter.com/GP9ka7fRsB — Simran Jeet Singh (@SikhProf) September 14, 2018 This isn't the first time when Kaur has made the country proud. She also won a gold medal in the 200m race in the 100-104 age group at the same tournament in Spain last year. Kaur also won a gold medal in the javelin event that year.
  10. No matter how many promises people make on a daily basis, we still have trust issues. Why? Because not everyone is as dedicated and committed as the Zomato's customer care team is, when it comes to building trust. Every foodie will relate to me when I say that we take our food delivery orders very seriously, more than anything else in life. So, it definitely is a huge deal if something goes wrong with it, especially when our money is hanging in the middle of the process. Recently, something similar happened to this guy who ordered food online and something went wrong with it. So, as expected, he contacted the customer care team and the conversation he had with one of the executives, is now making the internet laugh their hearts out. This picture was shared on Reddit. Reddit In order to ensure that he will get his money back, he asked the Zomato guy to swear on his mother's life, which we desi kids remember as 'Maa Kasam'. He said, "Maa kasam khao" and the guy happily obliged. Seriously, we don't know when was the last time we used 'Maa Kasam' to believe someone's words. Honestly, this is the level of commitment that we need in our lives.

  12. Ranveer Singh has been putting his best sartorial foot forward for his 'Simmba' promotions (when does he not, really?) From his Tiger Bappi jacket to his Gucci 'Loved' hoodie, the man has been pulling all the stops out, and he continues to do so. He just stepped out wearing a black leather jacket with gold studs that had us wide-eyed. Take a look. (c) Instagram.nikitajaisinghani (c) Viral Bhayani He's wearing the 'Inferno' jacket by Fausto Puglisi, that is spellbinding in terms of its construction and the glamorous, studded retro aesthetic. (c) Glamood (c) Glamood The jacket costs a whopping 4,755 Euros, which when converted to Indian currency, comes to Rs 3,80,747. Yes, you read that right. However, if that was not enough, there is another element in his outfit that stole the thunder from this piece of art. We're talking about the gold boots he is wearing. Take a look. (c) Instagram/nikitajaisinghani (c) Pinterest He's wearing the Signature Hedi Boot Zipped in Dark and Gold 40 Grained Metallic Leather from YSL. Even though it costs 'only' 695 Euros, that is INR 55, 650 (hey, they are inexpensive compared to that jacket!), they have our complete, unadulterated attention. Whoever said men can't pull off golden boots, need to see these bad boys. (c) Pinterest (c) Losarys Don't you just love the ensemble? The black and gold is doing wonders for the savagery his character clearly embodies in the movie. (c) Viral Bhayani Spellbound, Baba. That's all!
  13. Ranveer Singh's wild sartorial adventures are back on. Clearly, Deepika Padukone isn't trying to hold him back (why would she, anyway though?) Ranveer just stepped out wearing a full-on tiger print jacket, the likes of which you only get to see on ramps. © Bottega Veneta Clearly, the jacket is savage enough for him to outwit KJo in his famous 'Toodles' fashion banter on the IGT set. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Karan Johar (@karanjohar) on Dec 19, 2018 at 3:55am PST Now, as soon as we lay our eyes on the jacket, it becomes clear that it's a special number. It's a Zebra printed (even though Ranveer prefers calling it Tiger print) jacket made of corduroy, from the house of Bottega Veneta. © Bottega Veneta Now, we all have seen how Ranveer paired it with a bunch of chains, Bappi-da style, and that's probably is the reason why he called it a 'Tiger Bappi' jacket. However, we have another theory. We can call it that because it costs 3,065 US Dollars, which when translated to INR, comes to about 2.14 Lakhs. Yes, you read that right. You can get some sizable gold jewellery for that money. If that's not channelling one's inner Bappi Lahiri in more ways than one, we don't know what is. © Bottega Veneta We love the shearling intarsia collar along with the workwear-inspired silhouette, and if anyone in B-Town can pull it off effortlessly, it's Ranveer. Keep the madness alive, Baba.
  14. The world hasn't completely recovered from the storm called 'DeepVeer Ki Shaadi' that came in November and blew our minds away. But, that isn't stopping Bollywood's power couple (Ranveer and Deepika), from breaking the internet every single day, with their gorgeous pictures. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Nov 21, 2018 at 6:04am PST Right from their wedding (pre and post) and everything in between, every picture and aspect about it is stunning and mesmerizing to say the least.

  15. If the phrase 'living life king-size' was personified, we're sure it would be attributed to none other than Mukesh Ambani. The man has got money alright, he is the richest Indian after all. But it's the way the Ambanis choose to (or not) show-off their wealth (perhaps stored away in fantastical coffers) that's jaw-droppingly enviable. So the Ambanis sent out the wedding invitations for their daughter Isha's marriage to Piramal Group heir Anand Piramal, and now that the guests have finally started to receive them, we can promise you that the invites are nothing short of the marvel we expected them to be! View this post on Instagram Happy Daughter Day + Happy Engagement Day â¤ðððð A post shared by Isha Ambani (@ambani.isha) on Sep 23, 2018 at 4:09am PDT The invite comes in an elegant box with floral imprints marking the outer casing, along with Isha and Anand's initials carved on top of the box. However, it's the other box within the first one that holds a small little fortune in its own might. The smaller box inside contains four intricately carved, gilded boxes that house images of goddesses. What's more, as soon as you open the box containing these golden beauties, the Gayatri Mantra begins to play. It's a beautiful piece to lay one's hands on, and if reports are to be believed, these invites are made of real gold. View this post on Instagram Here is the first glimpse of the beautiful invite for Isha and Anand's wedding. Blessings of Gayatri Maa. #ishaambani #anandpiramal #ambaniwedding @viralbhayani A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Nov 4, 2018 at 1:10am PST So, going by the size of the boxes, we are guessing these would be easily worth enough to fund a person's air ticket to Bangkok. Now that says a lot about the extravaganza that Isha Ambani's wedding is going to be all about. View this post on Instagram My Gang ðâ¤ð A post shared by Isha Ambani (@ambani.isha) on Oct 29, 2018 at 1:01am PDT The pre-wedding festivities are going to be held in Udaipur from 8th to 9th December, while the lavish wedding itself is scheduled to take place on 12th December at the Ambani residence in Mumbai. We say that's a lot of good stuff to show-off!
  16. Asking for dowry is an offensive crime in India, yet almost every other day, we hear stories of women getting harassed for refusing to give dowry. Despite living in the 21st century, people continue to give in to the archaic practice of demanding dowry from the bride's family. While most people succumb to the pressure, there are some who bravely fight for what's right and teach a lesson to those who demand dowry. This is one such instance from Lucknow, where a bride's family members, reportedly, partially shaved the head of the groom, his father and brother. Facebook (for representation) According to the bride's family, the groom's family started making demands five days prior to the wedding and continued to increase the demands every day. According to a report in NDTV, the groom's grandmother said, "They made these demands five days before the wedding. He refused to marry the girl after we said we can't meet his demands. Don't know who tonsured his head." Lucknow: Groom's head tonsured allegedly because he refused to marry the bride, demanding motorcycle&gold chain y'day;bride's grandmother says, "they made these demands 5 days before wedding. He refused to marry after we said we can't fulfil them.Don't know who tonsured his head" pic.twitter.com/VVAkUtnTi7 — ANI UP (@ANINewsUP) October 22, 2018 The groom demanded a motorcycle, but when he got one, he didn't like the brand and asked for something else. He then demanded a gold necklace on the wedding day and refused to marry the girl until he got it. People on social media are lauding the bride's family for their brave stance and said that the guy deserved this for demanding dowry. Glad the girl's side did not bend over backwards to fulfil ll those demands. It would have been a life long ordeal for her, and her family. a ready ATM that fulfils demands. else, she would have ended up burnt alive. https://t.co/Mt0ysyqWtz — Harini Calamur (@calamur) October 22, 2018 Jisne bhi Kiya, acha Kiya.

  17. While the majority of us were still snoozed out at 4:30am on Tuesday morning, weightlifting history was being made by a 15-year old Indian athlete in Argentina. Remember Jeremy Lalrinnunga, the young weightlifter we told you about last year? © IWF Well, he just conquered the men's 62kg weightlifting event at the ongoing Youth Olympics in Argentina, standing tall with India's first ever gold medal in weightlifting on an Olympic stage. A weightlifting event comprises two lifts: the snatch and the clean & jerk. The athlete with the highest total clinches gold. Jeremy's first attempt in Snatch (120kg) was more than majority of athletes' final attempt. The Indian lifter, successfully lifted 120kg on his first snatch, missed his second attempt (124 Kg) but finally managed to get it in his final attempt. With the highest Snatch in the competition, Jeremy was playing for the gold right from the start. © IWF In clean & jerk he started with a successful 142kg. In his next attempt at 147 Kg, he successfully cleaned the weight, but failed to push it overhead. After Caner Topas (Turkey) and Jose Villar (Colombia) made their final attempts, Jeremy was declared the champion. Since he had already won, he could have withdrawn from taking the final attempt but like a true champion, Jeremy made his third attempt and effortlessly cleaned & jerked a whopping 150kg. His total shot up to his new personal best of 274kg in the process. This was the first time the Indian National anthem played in a weightlifting auditorium during an Olympic competition. © IWF Jeremy's potential was discovered by the Prestigious Army Institute of Sports, Pune, where he has been nurtured into a world-class weightlifter. He currently trains at the National Institute of Sports, Patiala under coach Vijay Sharma, who is also the coach to World Champion female weightlifter Mira Bai Chugh. We wholeheartedly congratulate the Indian Champion, all his coaches, his family and the National Institute of Sports for making our Nation proud.

  18. There is something about sportspersons and their humble beginnings that captures the imagination of fans, unlike others. An athlete fighting all the hardships early on and then going on to become an icon, serves as the perfect premise for a story. Take Cristiano Ronaldo for instance, the man rose through the ranks from being born into the ghettos of Madeira to becoming one of the world's best footballers. It's not that we get emotional or pity them (maybe sympathise a little), but the reason their stories seem to become the best ones and eventually strike a chord with the common folk, is because they inspire us to overcome our own hardships. It gives hope to all those who seek inspiration to turn the tide in their favour. The 2018 edition of the Asian Games brought a few stories like these into the spotlight. There were athletes who struggled severely in their daily life, but they neither stopped dreaming, nor did they give up hope. And, at the Games, these miracle workers produced spectacular performances and the glory was theirs for the taking. These young Indian eves after creating sensation in Poland are now aiming to seal their berth as the most promising prospects and next generation boxers for India. Let wish these young pugilists #allthebest. ð®ð³ðªð#PunchMeinHainDum #boxing pic.twitter.com/ojNMn5NGRh — Boxing Federation (@BFI_official) September 18, 2018 While the Asian Games have come to an end, the inspirational stories of Indian athletes continue to throng the limelight. A similar tale came to the fore at the 13th International Silesian Boxing Championships for women, where 16-year-old Sandeep Kaur made India proud by bagging a gold medal in women's boxing. Congratulations Sandeep Kaur for winning gold in 52 kg category in 13th international Silesian boxing. You are an inspiration to all the young girls.#WomenPositivehttps://t.co/6CorkkSMnF — All India Mahila Congress (@MahilaCongress) September 25, 2018 The teenage girl made sure that the Indian tricolour was flying high in Poland, by winning the yellow metal in the 52kg weight category (junior section). Plying her trade against home favourite Karolina Ampuska, Sandeep decimated her opponent with a barrage of punches to eventually secure a 5-0 win in the summit clash. It was undoubtedly the biggest moment of her budding career, but success didn't come easy for the youngster. Born into a poor family in Patiala's Hassanpur village, Sandeep was fighting for basic amenities long before opponents in the ring. Her father Sardar Jasvir Singh earns the daily bread and butter for his family by driving an auto. Thanks for making India Proud... Congrants Sandeep Kaur! — Aakriti Jain (@jain_minnie) September 25, 2018 Given their financial conditions, Sandeep was forced by her family members and fellow villagers to give up the sport and contribute by taking up a job. But, while everyone joined the chorus to end her boxing stint, Sandeep's father remained unmoved and worked harder to ensure his daughter didn't have to give up the sport. Sandeep's love affair with boxing began through her uncle Simranjit Singh, who used to box at a village academy. "I used to go with my uncle to a boxing academy near our village when I was a child. At the academy, I saw several youngsters box, and gradually my interest in the sport grew. I was eight when I first picked up the boxing gloves and started training," the youngster told TOI. She deserves praise.... — Rishikesh Chandel (@RishikesChandel) September 25, 2018 But, her decision to pursue boxing drew flak from all corners. Her relatives were convinced that she'd fail and achieve nothing, while Sandeep's fellow villagers persistently slammed her family for allowing the girl to pursue a man's sport. But, despite all the resistance, Sandeep's family - especially her father - stood by her side and motivated the young girl to dream big. Today, despite her short height and tender age, Sandeep stands taller than all the naysayers she has encountered in her life. The sight of the young girl standing on the podium with a gold medal around her neck was the perfect embodiment of perseverance and hard work- one that outlasted the criticism and resistance from all those who believe that women shouldn't take up a man's sport.
  19. So it is your friend's wedding and of course you want to present a gift that he will remember for years to come and perhaps even tell his grandchildren about. We have all been through similar situations ourselves, when we have picked our brains for the longest time to come up with 'hatke' gift ideas for a friend's wedding. © maxpixel The same thought seems to have struck a bunch of groom's friends in Tamil Nadu and they came up with the most epic idea for what to gift their friend. In the Cuddalore district of Tamil Nadu a young man and his newly wed wife were greeting guests when the groom's friends came in bearing a gift of a lifetime for their dear friend - a can full of five litres of petrol. Why, you ask? Read on to find out. © Twitter Petrol prices in the state of Tamil Nadu have touched Rs 85.15 per litre and this transformed the fuel into a valuable commodity, worthy of being presented as wedding gift, the friends claimed. The incident was first reported by the Tamil TV channel called, 'Puthiya Thalaimurai' through a 39-second video clip, and has since made it to the top news of the day. © Maxpixel Right when “No Gifts Please” is slowly picking up pace in the Indian wedding scene, this unexpected yet useful wedding gift is something that even the groom couldn't have said no to. We feel that is such a thoughtful (and different nonetheless) gift to present someone, especially when the fuel prices in Tamil Nadu happen to be one of the highest in the country. We reckon this gift would have surely won a few hearts and a ton of laughter at the wedding!
  20. The Asian Games may have ended but it's okay, Olympics are here to entertain us. Are you confused? Wait, I will clear it up. No, I'm not talking about the next Olympics in 2020 that will happen in Tokyo but a very different and far more superior edition right here on Twitter. People on Twitter, mostly desi people, have started awarding Olympic medals to everyone and the categories the celebrities have won, I have to say it's truly well-deserved. This is like an alternate universe for Olympics and everyone from Karan Johar to Anushka Sharma to none other than PM Narendra Modi are thriving in their respective categories.

  21. If you think you're surrounded by women or a woman who only gives a damn about your money, then you have yourself a gold digger, my friend. A gold digger is a loose term used for someone (mostly women) who have vested interests in dating you or being with you because all she wants is your money or for you to spend it on her. Sometimes it's tough to realise the presence of someone like this in your life but there are ways to identify a gold digger and completely cut them off from your life, because why would you let anyone use you? If you know someone who is a gold digger in someone else's life, it's time to warn them too. © YouTube If you suspect the woman in your life to be a gold digger, here are 5 ways to identify her and cut her off! (1) She Agrees With Almost Everything Gold diggers have an overtly agreeable attitude and they usually agree with anything you say to them or ask them to do. That's because they're people pleasers and will do anything to get you to spend your money on them. If you are with a girl who barely says no or stands her ground in order to please you, you know she has ulterior motives. This is a very common manipulative tactic used by a gold digger. (2) She Has Expensive Tastes Have you ever heard the saying 'cut your coat according to the cloth'? Well, that doesn't stand true for a gold digger and she'll always go beyond what she can afford because she has expensive tastes. If she's not in a high paying job and yet she likes to wear branded clothes and shoes and always expects you to buy her ridiculously expensive things, with no consideration for your wallet, then you know what you're in for. (3) Gifts Will Always Make Her Forgive You If she's angry with you, buy her a gift and she'll forget why she was angry with you in the first place. That's how gold diggers function. They're very materialistic and selfish and the only way you can pacify them is by mollycoddling their expensive tastes. Most problems in relationships should be sorted out by communicating with the other person and if gifts are the only way she calms down, then it's really not worth it. (4) She's Materialistic And Shallow That's a given right? If you're dating a gold digger, there's not much of an emotional connect you'll form with her. She won't remember important dates or events. She won't have a heart-to-heart ever and all she'll care about would be her materialistic possessions and her wants. It's like being with a hollow person devoid of emotions because she's not in love with you really. She's in love with your money! (5) She Uses *** As A Weapon She uses *** very strategically with you. By that, I mean if you do something wrong she will refuse to have *** with you, psyching you to believe that her way of getting back at you is neglecting you physically. If you do something right, like buy her an expensive present, she'll probably give you the best night of your life. She uses *** as a reward system and she's conditioning you to basically pay her for ***! Through gifts and money of course. So, if you see these signs, they're actually warning bells, my friend. Especially if the relationship is fairly new. Do yourself a solid and cut the person off, before you go bankrupt!
  22. Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan's upcoming movie 'Sui Dhaaga' is one of the most anticipated films of the year. The trailer of the film has received an overwhelming response and you will understand the excitement around it once you've watched it. Helmed by Sharat Katariya, who gave us 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha', the movie is expected to be an interesting tale that gives us an insight into India's textile industry like never before. © Yash Raj Films Set in a small town, the movie depicts the real ups and downs of human life. The story of Mauji and Mamta might be ordinary but it certainly is relatable to many Indians who are trying to make something meaningful out of their lives. Their romance, which begins to develop after they get married, is shown rather beautifully in the trailer and we can't wait to see how it progresses in the movie. However, right now, the funny memes around the film are flooding the internet and people are letting their creative juices flow. © Yash Raj Films A particular screenshot of Anushka Sharma from the trailer, captured with an extremely emotional expression on her face, has become the fodder for trolls. In fact, Varun even called her 'memes ki rani'. Obviously, this did not escape Anushka, who finally came around to seeing herself as a meme, and her reaction was priceless. #suidhaaga #anushkasharma #varundhawan #zoom A post shared by Kamal Jena (@kamaljena) on Aug 13, 2018 at 8:47am PDT Because the struggle of FASTING is REAL!

I kept sharing them with Varun, Sharat [Katariya, director] and my friends. It is a compliment that my character has been stuck in people's head after they watched the trailer. Mamta has become a figure that everyone identifies with. Memes have become a common feature today. People actually dedicate time to make them. But in our case, it happened naturally and that too, on a huge scale." © Yash Raj Films What a kickass reply, Anushka! Talking about her character in 'Sui Dhaaga' she further said, "It takes a lot of work to play a character that you have not lived. I had to be restrained. Also, Sharat tries to keep the narrative as raw and real as possible. You can't follow his vision unless you are completely immersed in the character."
  23. Irrespective of the sport, every athlete dreams about representing their country on the international stage. It's needless to say that all their training and hard work eventually culminates to making the motherland proud. But, while everyone aims to carry the baton for their respective homelands, only a handful are able to deliver under immense pressure. However, when you add an ailing father into the picture and the fact that an athlete had to leave him behind to represent his country at the coveted 2018 Asian Games, the amount of pressure on that sportsperson is arguably beyond measure. Tajinderpal Singh Toor found himself in a similar situation not very long ago. The Indian shot-putter was ready to travel to Indonesia where athletes from different countries were going to lock horns in a bid to secure a medal at this year's Asian Games. But, while the opportunity of representing India at such a major tournament got Tajinderpal excited, it also meant that he had to leave his father - who was battling cancer - behind. © AP The situation that Tajinderpal found himself in can easily affect any athlete and throw them off their game. But, Tajinderpal used it as a source of motivation - something not many are capable of doing. He began the men's shot put final with a brilliant effort, but then struggled in following attempts. This was the time when his coach MS Dhillon reminded him of all the sacrifices he had made to be there. And, the result was a 20.75m throw - a new Asian Games records and a gold-medal finish for an emotional Tajinderpal. It was a performance that highlighted an individual's ability to overcome all odds and come out on top. Overwhelmed with emotions, Tajinderpal couldn't hide his feelings as to what the Asian Games gold meant to him and his family. "This is my biggest achievement because a lot of sacrifices have been made. For the last two years, my father (Karam Singh) has been battling with cancer. My family though never let me get distracted. They allowed me to chase my dream. A lot of sacrifices have been made by my family and friends and all those have paid today," Tajinderpal, overwhelmed with emotions, had told TOI after winning the Asiad gold. "My family never pressurised to attend my father in hospital and it was always my friends who took care of all the hospital formalities in my absence. I have not gone home much in this period since I was training in Dharamsala. Now I will meet my dad but I will be there for only two days. I have to get ready for the next challenge. My coach MS Dhillon also needs to be credited for the hard work put in by him," the Indian athlete had added. © AP It was undoubtedly the best gift a son can give to his father, and an athlete to a country. But, fate had different plans for Tajinderpal. His happiness was going to be short-lived. AFI is in deep shock.We received Tejinder Toor,our Asian Shot Put Champion Gold Medalist at the airport last night & as he was on his way to hotel, sad news of his father's demise reached us.

His father had a last wish of holding his son's Asiad gold in his hands, but, sadly, it couldn't be fulfilled. "I can't speak to my father. Because of the cancer in his throat, he can't speak to me over the phone. But I know he is proud of me," Tajinderpal had told ESPN after his triumph in Indonesia. Newly crowned Asian Games champion Shot putter Tejinder Pal Singh Toor's father passed away after his brave battle with cancer. May God rest his soul in peace . ॠशाà¤à¤¤à¤¿ शाà¤à¤¤à¤¿ ðð» — Rahul PAWAR (@rahuldpawar) September 3, 2018 For an athlete who chose to train, work hard and eventually made the country proud at the expense of spending time with his family, Tajinderpal deserves all the credit and praise one can spare for sportspersons. And, while we all basked in his glory at the Games, in this darkest hour of his life, India must stand by Tajinderpal's side, for that is the least we can do to repay the efforts of our brave athletes. And, while nothing that compensate the loss of life, we are sure that Tajinderpal's father - wherever he is now - will be proud of the fact that his son's biggest achievement in life - the Asian Games gold - was for him.
  24. In 2015, when Son Heung-min signed a deal with Tottenham Hotspur for 22 million pounds, the South Korean footballer etched his name in the history books as the most expensive Asian player in history. For someone who honed his skills at Germany's Hamburger SV and then played for Bayer Leverkusen, Son eventually found his calling at the North London club, where he also became the top Asian goalscorer in Premier League history. If his club career scaled new heights, Son also proved his mettle on the international stage, representing South Korea. He was a vital cog of the South Korean football team at the 2014 and 2018 FIFA World Cups. And, more recently, he became the joint top-scorer for his country alongside Park Ji-sung and Ahn Jung-hwan at the World Cup. At the 2015 AFC Asian Cup, Son proved crucial for his side as South Korea finished the tournament as runners-up. © Reuters But, all of his records and achievements would mean nothing if Son loses the men's football final at the 2018 Asian Games on 1st September. South Korea will be looking to clinch the gold medal when they lock horns with Japan in the coveted final, but for Son, the match will probably be the last opportunity for him to save what has been a prolific football career. According to the South Korean government's policy, all able-bodied males in the country are subjected to complete at least 21 months of military service before turning 28. However, there is an exception to it. Those who have secured gold medals at the Olympics or Asian Games are automatically exempted from completing the mandatory military service for the said duration. © Reuters With Son now 26, the ongoing Games in Indonesia is probably his last chance to get out of military duty and fulfil his new five-year contract at Tottenham. But, it definitely is not going to be easy for Son and his teammates to contain fierce rivals Japan in the final. South Korea lost to Malaysia in the group stage and needed extra-time to battle past Uzbekistan in the quarterfinal. The South Koreans, then, defeated Vietnam 3-1 to storm into the final. On Saturday, when Son takes the field with his teammates against Japan in the final, apart from the South Koreans, the Tottenham team and their fans, too, will keep close tabs on the fixture in a desperate hope that their star goes on to secure the all-important gold medal.
  25. Going by the medals tally, it's safe to say that India has done a good job at the ongoing 2018 Asian Games. The athletes have repaid the faith of their coaches and fans through a series of medal-winning performances. But, more than the medals, it's the rise of unheard heroes in Indian sports that has captured the imagination of fans. Defying their humble backgrounds, tender ages and lack of popularity, these superstars have made the nation proud after making their months and years of hard work count on the international stage. On, 29th August, another name was added to the ever-growing list of Asian Games superheroes when an Indian athlete ended his country's 48-year wait for a gold medal in the men's triple jump category. © AP For a man who finished fourth at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, Arpinder Singh made no mistake and buried all his demons with a gold-medal finish at the Asian Games. Despite beginning with a foul on his first attempt, the 25-year-old managed to reach 16.58m on his second jump. But, it was arguably his third attempt that saw him reaching 16.77m and, thereon, securing a gold medal for his country. Arpinder's effort broke the deadlock for India's gold in the event after Mohinder Singh Gill won the top prize at the 1970 Asian Games. This is India's third gold in the men's triple jump event at the Asian Games. India has also won two silver - Labh Singh (1970), Mohinder Singh Gill (1974) - and as many bronze medals - Labh Singh (1966) and S Balasubramaniam (1982) in this category at the Games. © AP Uzbekistan's Ruslan Kurbanov managed to secure the silver medal with a personal best jump of 16.62m, while Kohei Yamashita's 16.56-metre jump gave Japan a bronze. Arpinder's compatriot Rakesh Babu Arayan Veettil almost came close to the podium, but eventually finished fourth with his best effort of 16.40m. Thanks to Arpinder, India can boast of 10 gold medals. India has now won 53 medals in total - 10 gold, 20 silver and 23 bronze - and are currently placed ninth in the medals tally. Arpinder Singh , you beauty , what a Challang- 16.77m .
