  1. Pakistan's farmers are still counting their losses from the devastating floods that have put a third of the country under water
  2. Heartache is probably the only pain that cannot be shown or described. You can not just pop a pill and let the chemicals work their magic on making it stop hurting. So, when words fail, music helps, here are 8 beautiful Hindi songs which describe the feeling of missing someone who’s already gone: 1. Phir Le Aaya Dil- You’ve moved on, life is going fine but well, when the heart wants what it wants, it comes calling like no one’s business. This is a beautiful track that spells reminisce like nothing else. 2. Ae Ajnabi – On some days, don’t we just sit back with memories in the hope that someone on the other side calls us back? Oftentimes than not, people in our lives stay for a season or a reason. If you’re missing someone who’s gone, call out that ‘ajnabi’. 3. Jiyein Kyun- I love this song for its sad reality and how it embeds truth in music and lyrics. ‘Naa aaye ho, na aaoge, na phone pe bulayoge’, real and poignant. 4. Tum Ho- The beauty of owning someone’s heart is in letting them free, even though that’s ironical, but that’s so true. Tum Ho is an ode to a love that’s probably not physically with you, but it will stay with you till the end of time. 5. Ye Dooriyan- Let Mohit Chauhan soothe your broken heart with his beautiful voice as he calls out ‘ fanaa ho sabhi dooriyan’. 6. Mana Ke Hum Yaar Nahin- Sometimes, in life, your heart needs more time to accept what your mind already has. This beautiful song of two people reuniting, not as lovers but as lovers from the past, describes how important it is to move on, even when your heart decides not to. 7. Channa Mereya- Classic heartbreak song for a love that’s gone, bound to never come back. 8. Agar Tum Saath Ho – As Arijit rightly asks, ‘tum saath ho, ya na ho, kya fark hai’. Well, there’s no ‘fark’ but it hurts to believe that your heart has been changed forever. View the full article
  3. Only a few movies in Bollywood have managed to make a lasting impact on me, and no, I am not talking about the good ones here. Hell, I am not even talking about the bad ones here. I am talking about terrible ones, like Ram Gopal Verma’s Aag, Farah Khan’s Tees Maar Khan and well, Yash Raj Films’ Tashan. © YRF Released back in 2008, this movie was from the era where film banners would simply pick up a starcast and begin making a movie without having so much as a clue about what they were doing. Don’t believe me? Watch the movie... Or actually, on second thoughts, don’t. © YRF The film starts with introducing Jeetendra Kumar Makhwana a.k.a. Jimmy Cliff to us who is played by Saif Ali Khan. Jimmy works as a call centre executive, however, also teaches English as a part-time gig. Within the first few minutes of the film, Jimmy falls in love with Pooja, who had just shown up to his call centre, asking him to give her private English tutoring. Is it just me, or does this feel a little too realistic in Saif & Bebo’s case?.. © YRF Jimmy, who readily agrees, later realizes that she had tricked him into saying yes, because the real student was in fact her boss - Lakhan Singh Ballebaaz a.k.a. Bhaiyyaji (Anil Kapoor). A top-class gangster and the most cringe character in the movie. For the next couple of minutes, predictability takes centre stage and Jimmy & Pooja fall in love with each other, because what other angle does Bollywood even know? © YRF All is going well, until one day when Bhaiyyaji gives Pooja the bashing of a lifetime. Jimmy, who is as good as furniture in this scene, witnesses the showdown, only to later grow the balls and diss Bhaiyyaji (behind his back of course). © YRF Somehow, after listening to a sob story from Pooja (that barely even qualifies as one) about how she needs money to scatter her grandmother’s ashes in Haridwar, the two lovebirds decide to steal Bhaiyyaji’s money and fly away. © YRF Except, Jimmy’s wings are clipped the moment he realises the truth behind Bhaiyyaji and his horrific criminal past. As he rushes home to warn Pooja, he finds out that he’s been played like a child’s Russian roulette because Pooja is long gone, dancing in a bikini on chaliya chaliya. The very song & the very golden bikini played as a thirst trap into making people watch this hideous movie. © YRF Enter, Bachchan Pandey aka Akshay Kumar. The rowdy goon who gets hired by Bhiayyaji to track down our desi Bonnie & Clyde. Jimmy takes about half a minute to be caught and with him, Bachchan goes to Haridwar to catch Pooja. © YRF Somehow, she escapes and in an attempt to find her, Bhaiyyaji’s car falls into the water. Turns out, she had been hiding in their car all along and is caught when she comes up to the surface of the water. © YRF Pooja then reveals how the money has been secured in 7 different places in India, all the while, fooling Jimmy once again by making him believe that they should run away with the money - this time without ditching the dumbhead. © YRF She begins seducing Bachchan in her plot to make a fool out of him but finds out that they were childhood lovers, who got separated. Feelings get in the way, Jimmy gets hit on his arse by his sheer bad luck and everything goes to hell. They recover the money, and Bachchan leaves with it to return to Bhaiyyaji. But the clever little minx that Pooja was, she had replaced it with stones. © YRF Knowing that it might lead to putting Bachchan in harm’s way, she tells Jimmy the truth (for the first time ever, not that he wouldn’t believe it even if it weren’t) about how her father was killed by Bhaiyyaji. And that makes into the most predictable, done-to-death Hindi movie plot ever - revenge and long-lost love. © YRF The incompetent duo then reaches Bhaiyyaji’s lair and Jimmy pretends to betray Pooja, tricking Bhaiyyaji into putting his trust in Jimmy. He then asks Bhaiyyaji to hand his gun to him, so he can be the one putting a bullet in Bachchan’s head. And Bhaiyyaji, handed it right over to him because on top of being an absolute d**khead, he is also as stupid as apparently, the dangerous gangster that he is, gives away his gun happily because apparently, he was just that dumb. © YRF Jimmy points the gun to Bhaiyyaji, takes him hostage and flees with Bachchan and Pooja. Bhaiyyaji obviously jumps out of the car, because what is a movie without an expensive and pointless fight scene. © YRF After 10,000 explosions, 500 slo-mo shots and absolutely unimpressive action, Pooja stabs Bhaiyyaji and kills him to satiate her thirst for revenge. Clearly, the girl had daddy issues to resolve. © YRF As the movie finally digresses towards its end, Jimmy is shown to have opened his own call-centre where only women work and Pooja and Bachchan get married. A rather ordinary end to an underwhelming film. The End. View the full article
  4. Picard is called from his vineyard in France after a message is heard in deep space summoning him for help.
  5. Call me biased (or a dog lover), but the kind of love you experience when you have a dog is unlike any other. The meaning of loyalty, true love and selflessness that we had in our minds all becomes subject to change when you adopt a dog (or any animal for that matter) because it is then, when you realize how you don’t need words to put across a thousand emotions. And reciprocating that same sentiment were a bunch of people in a Mumbai neighborhood, who all gathered to celebrate and cherish the return of their street dog, who had gone missing for over a week. Guys, this is where you pull out your tissues. View this post on Instagram The video that was shared on Instagram by the user @tedthestoner shows the return of a beloved street dog in a taxi while people from that neighborhood gathered around to welcome him with open arms, joyful hooting and lots of hugs. The caption for the post was, “A befitting gesture for everyone's best friend, Whiskey.” And it indeed, was. © Twitter ‘Whiskey’, as the people from the locality had named the dog, wags his tail and flops around from person to person, ready to greet him and pet him. His entry was no less than that of a superstar and if anything, it was far more wholesome to watch than anything we’ve seen all week. © Twitter The video that was posted only one day ago has now garnered over 48 thousand likes, with several users dropping comments like, “Enough to make a grown man happy,” and “At a time where people fights each other in the name of caste, religion,gender etc it's heartwarming to see everyone get together to celebrate our best friend.” © Twitter People are wishing more neighborhoods would be like this, appreciating the simpler things in life, and we agree. In fact one user even wrote, “Where is this colony.. i wanna live here,” and we’d be lying if we didn’t admit to wondering the same thing. View the full article
  6. Sourav Ganguly’s elder brother Snehasis Ganguly has slammed the senior wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha for making public the ‘private’ conversation he had with the BCCI President a few months ago. After he was dropped from India’s Test squad for the upcoming two-match series against Sri Lanka, Saha has gone on to make some shocking revelations about different individuals, including the BCCI chief and the current head coach of the Indian cricket team Rahul Dravid. View this post on Instagram Just a couple of hours after the squad was announced, the 37-year-old keeper gave an interview where he revealed that Ganguly had sent him a WhatsApp message congratulating him on his brilliant match-saving knock against New Zealand in Kanpur in November last year. Apart from praising him for his wonderful knock, the former India skipper, in the same conversation, had also promised the keeper that he shouldn’t worry about his place in the Indian squad, at least till he was at the helm. © Twitter BCCI “After scoring 61 against New Zealand at Kanpur, Dadi (Sourav Ganguly) congratulated me over WhatsApp and mentioned, ‘As long as I’m here (helming the BCCI), you would be in the team’. Such a message from the BCCI president really boosted my confidence. What I’m struggling to understand is how things have changed so fast,” the wicketkeeper-batsman had told The Indian Express. However, just a few months later he was kicked out of the red-ball squad by the selectors. What has hurt the veteran cricketer the most was the lack of transparency from the decision-makers. © Twitter BCCI The head coach Rahul Dravid had conveyed to him that he won’t be part of Team India’s plan going forward, while the chairman of selector Chetan Sharma said it wasn’t the end of the road and that he could make a comeback depending on his performances in domestic cricket. Reacting to the whole controversy, Snehasis, who is also the secretary of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), said that Saha made a mistake by revealing the details of his communication with the BCCI president as well as the chairman of the selector regarding his place in the Indian team. © Reuters “This is my personal opinion, but what was communicated to him (Saha) by the chief selector or BCCI was private. He probably shouldn’t have gone public with that,” Snehasish told reporters on Sunday as quoted by The Indian Express. The CAB official also said that rather than giving interviews he should have played Ranji Trophy and focused on performing for his state team. © Twitter BCCI “Also, he could have played the Ranji Trophy. He cited personal reasons for pulling out and we have to respect that. The door is always open for him, whenever he wants to join the squad,” he added. Saha’s frustration stemmed from the fact that he was told different things from different individuals. While the chairman of selectors Chetan Sharma said that they were not closing the door on anyone, Dravid had conveyed to him that he would not be considered for selection in the future and even advised him to consider retirement. © Reuters The lack of communication has led to several controversies in the last few months. Just a couple of months back, we saw how Virat Kohli publicly called out Ganguly’s lies after he was unceremoniously sacked from the ODI captaincy. © Twitter BCCI Saha’s case was also a result of lack of clear communication from the BCCI. Just like Kohli, he wouldn’t have reacted in the manner he did had he gotten a clear message as to why he was being left out of the team. Rather than bashing him for revealing things in public, we should ask ourselves what other choice he was left with. View the full article
  7. I love Bollywood movies, but one thing that I love more than the movie itself is Bollywood’s audacity. And by that, I mean the audacity to make a ‘horror’ film without an ounce of horror in it. We’re talking about the 2002 release Raaz that marked itself as one of the most poorly-made horror films in Bollywood and was ironically the ‘secret’ to why Bipasha Basu would be typecast into doing roles just like this. © Tips Industries The movie starts with a group of friends playing spin the bottle in the middle of a jungle for some messed up reason. As the bottle lands on a girl named Nisha, she outright refuses to kiss the person in front of her, and in her defence, we don’t blame her. Of course, the ‘no’ doesn’t deter the guy’s spirits who then runs after her to claim the kiss. © Tips Industries As the two run off into the middle of a jungle at night, because what is more romantic than playing hide and seek in a deserted forest and inviting trouble, Nisha starts experiencing something otherworldly. Somehow, she gets possessed, attacks the guy, and is rushed to the hospital. There, just before dying, her voice and her face completely change, scaring the shit out of the doctors who then call a professor to take a look at the psycho (and now dead) patient. © Tips Industries Professor Agni Swaroop (Ashutosh Rana), declares her to have been possessed by an evil spirit, who is out for revenge. © Tips Industries Cut to the life of Sanjana Dhanraj (Bipasha Basu) and Aditya Dhanraj (Dino Morea) where in the first itself Aditya depicts himself as a self-absorbed prick who is busy ignoring his wife at a party. Sanjana, on the other hand, downs a drink in anger and leaves the party in frustration. On her way back, she meets with an accident after she hears a scary voice in her head. © Tips Industries In the hospital, Sanjana asks her good-for-nothing husband for a divorce but he, like any other toxic guy in denial, suggests going to Ooty for a vacation instead to work on their marriage. Sanjana, who at this point just wants him to shut up, says yes. © Tips Industries In Ooty, while they are trying to reconcile, Sanjana starts experiencing weird things. Hearing voices of a woman shouting in the forest, poorly directed supernatural elements here and there that are anything but scary. Aditya, on the other hand, is busy gaslighting her into believing that it’s the sleeping pills that are making her paranoid. © Tips Industries Not convinced, Sanjana tries to further poke her nose where it doesn’t belong because simply this much jump-scare is not doing it for her. While probing around the house, Sanjana reaches her previous caretaker’s house, Robert, who had vanished one fine day after he also started hearing the kind of voices Sanjana does. Safe to say, she shits her pants and decides it’s time to involve others. © Tips Industries Her friend Priya takes her to Professor Swaroop who agrees to visit Sanjana’s house. Sensing an evil spirit in their midst, the professor further scares the shit out of Sanjana who frantically disrupts Aditya’s meeting to tell him about what happened. © Tips Industries An annoyed and embarrassed Aditya shuns away from the beliefs of the Professor and decides it’s best to go back to Mumbai. Due to a landslide they can't, which is when Aditya decides to go alone and come back to collect Sanjana later. © Tips Industries This gives Sanjana enough alone time to summon spirits and almost get everyone killed, because what else is a jilted wife to do in a holiday home, right? © Tips Industries Going to the same spot where Nisha (the adult playing hide n seek) was attacked, she finds a revolver. It turns out the revolver belonged to a colonel who had a daughter, Malini, in the mental asylum. His daughter who had run away several other times, presumably took the revolver with her on the day she vanished and never came back. © Tips Industries Using this information to derive nothing sensible, Sanjana decides to talk to the spirit. © Tips Industries As she summons the spirit, she learns, and in the most pathetic, unexpected and spookiest way, that her dick of a husband was having an affair. © Tips Industries Upon a nasty confrontation, Aditya admits to the affair and tries to save face by saying how he never planned on leaving Sanjana, despite being asked to do so by Malini. Such love, much wow. Romance = 100% © Tips Industries Malini, who had crossed over to the edge after being rejected (because in this society saying no is simply unacceptable) shoots herself to frame Aditya. Clearly, she hadn’t thought it through because very conveniently, Aditya and the caretaker - Robert bury her body in the forest and put this whole thing behind them. © Tips Industries Except, Malini comes back, this time as a manipulative spirit whose plan is to kill Aditya and die happily ever after. Sanjana, Priya and Dr Swaroop decide to go after Aditya to help him, however, Malini’s spirit takes the form of Sanjana and fools Aditya into coming with her. © Tips Industries The spirit makes them fall into an accident and Aditya is hospitalized. Dr Swaroop tells Sanjana that the only way to stop her is by burning Malini’s body that has been buried in the forest, and so once again, they go into the nest of evil. © Tips Industries As the three struggle to find the body, the spirit is attacking them left right and centre and eventually kills Dr Swaroop to take his form and attacks Sanjana and Priya. © Tips Industries As they are fighting for their life, pretty poorly I must say, Sanjana finds Robert's body casually hanging from a tree and somehow, with no tact and pure luck, pours kerosene over Malini’s dead body and burns her. © Tips Industries All this to save a lying, cheating prick in the hospital, to whom Sanjana happily goes back to after having just been involved in something so paranormal. The End. View the full article
  8. Interior minister says when he went to Murree, he ordered evacuation of more than 700 people who were stuck in vehicles
  9. Let’s take a moment and reel back to the year 2001 when Bollywood was at its peak of minting movies that did not make sense, yet a lot of money. And more so, when it started to release movies in a genre that wasn’t just your cliche boy meets girl romance angle. © Venus Records One such movie to break Bollywood’s romantic rhythm (and all sense or logic) was the Bobby Deol and Kareena Kapoor starrer film Ajnabee. © Venus Records The film starts with both the main protagonists - Raj (Bobby Deol) and Priya (Kareena Kapoor) bumping into each other at every possible place to worship. © Venus Records Priya, like the average Indian woman who can’t be too careful of men anywhere, takes Raj to be a stalker and runs from the church, only to be chased all the way to her home. © Venus Records When confronted by Priya and her hilariously ill father, who can laugh at cue, it turns out that Raj was not a stalker, but simply religious and was only chasing Priya because the woman ran away with his umbrella. © Venus Records From this moment on to the next 5 minutes, all we hear is Priya’s father’s annoying and unbearably loud laughter. The man is literally laughing at anything at this point. Raj : *breathes* Father : HAAHHAHAHAHAHA. Good one. HAHAHAHAHA. © Venus Records In between this paranoid hysteria, it is found out that Raj was awaiting results from his polo club where he applied for the position of a coach in Switzerland. And to no one’s surprise, Priya’s father turned out to be the chairman of the polo club and obviously selected him for it. © Venus Records Not wasting any time Raj asks Priya for a date and over a round of mosambi juice asks her hand for marriage in a rather unsolicited and unromantic way and on the very first date (because who knows there would have been a second). © Venus Records Priya, obviously, says yes, because who denies a proposal from a total stranger you thought was a stalker up until 12 hours ago? Jackpot! © Venus Records Cut to Switzerland where the couple arrives in a neighbourhood where people are even more annoying than Priya’s father’s laugh. And that is saying a lot. © Venus Records They soon get acquainted with the couple living next door, wherein Sonia (Bipasha Basu) is shown as this seductress who likes to play the piano in a silk dress and in all 64 positions devised by the Kamasutra. And Vikram, on the other hand, is this cocky and spying husband who likes to crack uncomfortable jokes to maintain awkwardness in the air. © Venus Records The two couples go for a holiday in Mauritius and a couple of hundred songs later, the plot starts to thicken. © Venus Records Sonia starts coming on to Raj like a nymphomaniac on the loose and shit finally hits the fan when Vikram puts swinging on the table. © Venus Records Raj, who is clearly not okay with swapping wives, ends up getting into a fight with Vikram which cuts their vacation short. © Venus Records The two reconcile after a few days and become BFFs again. One such day while celebrating Vikram’s birthday, Raj and Vikram get pissed drunk and he again suggests swapping wives that night. © Venus Records By this time we already know Raj’s answer, however, this is where the first twist comes in. © Venus Records Raj (despite saying no to Vikram’s proposal), wakes up naked next to Sonia the next morning. © Venus Records Sonia is soon found dead and Raj is framed for her murder, consider his prints are found on the murder weapon - a bottle of alcohol. Raj, however, in a fit to prove his innocence, escapes from the court and the police, because it’s apparently just that easy. © Venus Records An otherwise poor polo coach now becomes a top tier detective, out to solve the case of his neighbour’s wife. Priya eventually trusts Raj and agrees to help him out, because that’s the cost you pay for marrying a guy whom you knew for all of 7 minutes. © Venus Records They sneak into Vikram’s house trying to find evidence but get confronted by Vikram, who reveals how everything was planned (except for the plot of the movie, of course..). © Venus Records Showing his cards probably a little too early and calling the police, Vikram chases the couple out of his house who flee away in Vikram’s car. © Venus Records In their car, they come across a boarding pass that belonged to Sonia Bajaj, according to which Sonia arrived in Zurich on 29 December - the very night she was supposedly murdered. © Venus Records Raj tries to connect dots with the woman he once saw Vikram with in Mauritius. As the desperate couple travels to Geneva (and mind you, with no trouble despite an arrest warrant out for Raj as a murder suspect), they find an insurance agent also trying to look for evidence against Vikram who supposedly received a $100 million payout after his wife’s death. © Venus Records The three pair up and follow a trail to a cruise where they come across Vikram, chilling and buying everyone drinks on the ship. © Venus Records And that is when the second bomb drops, as Bipasha Basu aka Sonia is shown alive, well and dancing to the beats of oila oila with dear Vicky. © Venus Records Raj and Priya, dismissing the obvious plan of action - calling the police to let them in on the information, decide to confront the con couple instead. Vikram, as cocky as he is, sings like a canary and tells him of his master plan that was put into action the day Raj and Priya moved into the house next door. Turns out, the woman Raj saw Vikram with was the real Sonia Bajaj and also Vikram’s wife. © Venus Records While Bipasha’s real identity was Neeta, who used to be a bar dancer. Neeta and her lover Vicky wanted to get rich quick and so, Vikram decided to hook a sugar mama for himself, only to come up with an elaborate plan to kill her and acquire her estate and money. And while Vikram is basking in the glory of his rags to riches story, he is interrupted by Raj and how. © Venus Records Raj then goes on to show Vikram how his bank account that had $100 million was now empty because genius Raj Malhotra simply guessed his password to be ‘everything is planned’ and transferred the money back. © Venus Records Not only that, but he apparently also recorded the entire confession and rather than being sneaky enough to somehow escape and submit it to the cops, he shows Vikram the recorder and invites a blood bath. The genius of this movie was obviously way ahead of its time. Vikram who is now both - exposed and broke, and clearly has nothing to lose, goes into a fit of rage and attacks the three. © Venus Records In all the commotion, Neeta dies and Vikram runs rampant to kill both Priya and Raj. Of course, Raj wins and Vikram gets stabbed by the ship anchor. © Venus Records Surprisingly no charges of even manslaughter in self-defence get imposed on Raj, who walks a free man with Priya, right back to the streets of India, where they have normally annoying neighbours and not downright psycho killers.

  10. Now that I think about the life I had before the pandemic took over our lives, it feels like dating myself back to an alternate reality that never really existed. To imagine walking around without masks, hugging people without worrying for more than their body odour and travelling in public transportation piled one on top of the other, all seems surreal now that ‘social distancing’ is the new normal. via GIPHY And while in the past two years we’ve made peace with a lot of things, one that we still struggle with every now and then is working from home. Don’t get me wrong, I love not having to scoot myself in a crowded metro to work every morning and not seeing the faces of some colleagues I detest, but at the same time, I miss the banter (and much more) too. Here are 6 things I dearly miss about going to the office (and 3 that I never will): 1. Office Wifi via GIPHY With an impressive broadband speed that didn’t just support loading your 256 tabs at the same time but also allowed you to sneakily download that movie from torrent, office wifi is definitely the first thing on the list that I, along with several others, would miss. After all, we had gotten used to the killer speed to refresh our Insta feeds every 5 seconds. 2. 24*7 Air Conditioning © iStock At the cost of sounding like a penny pincher, I will admit that sitting in the comfort of air conditioning all day long, not worrying about an overwhelming bill used to undoubtedly be the best part of the day for me. Even days where we would just freeze ourselves to a standstill in the office would be far better than melting into a puddle of sweat at home. 3. Office Gossip © iStock A day wouldn’t feel complete without taking a break with your work-friends over coffee or maybe a chai and sutta and exchanging some good old gossip. Call it a necessary evil but there would be something about the mindless banter that would simply make our days at work a lot easier. 4. Having A Routine via GIPHY Never thought I’d say this, but waking up just 5 minutes before my morning zoom meeting was fun for only a couple of weeks until I realised that my productivity and health both had considerably dropped in WFH. I miss having a work-life balance and not feeling like a zombie. 5. Getting Dressed © iStock After having spent the last two years of my life in my pyjamas and oversized t-shirts, it is safe to admit that I do miss getting ready each morning and wearing clothes that didn't have an elastic band. Those formal wear I spent a fortune on, yearn to be dragged out of the closet and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss sporting them on. 6) Good Posture © iStock Believe it or not, but sitting and working from home has inevitably given us all a hunchback that is less than flattering, especially for those of us who are still in our 20s or 30s. The office culture might otherwise have a lot of flaws but one space where it definitely did us a favour was by giving us a posture that kept our spines erect. And now, for the things that I most definitely don’t miss and never would: 1. Small Talk via GIPHY Be it the awkward elevator talk or the small talk you feel forced to make with your colleague sitting next to you, one thing I don’t miss about office culture is putting on a fake smile and acting interested in people’s weekends, when all I can think about is how soon to end the conversation and go back to plugging my earphones in. 2. Back-To-Back Meetings © iStock Not that they don’t happen now, they do and for equally long hours but perhaps there is a big difference between having to attend endlessly long meetings in person as opposed to over zoom calls. At least now, your boss can’t stare dead straight into your eyes while you hold back on that yawn, making questionable faces. 3. Tiring Commute via GIPHY Stuffing yourself in public transport every morning and making a tiring mess out of your freshly ironed clothes was never fun and often sucked the fun out of us even before we started on with our day. Now that there is no need to wedge ourselves between strangers in a metro, I wish I never have to face the gruesome commute again. View the full article

She has often been in the news for her path-breaking films and has never failed to impress the audience with her talent. © Instagram/Kareena Kapoor Khan © Instagram/Kareena Kapoor Khan Kareena, like many of us, had to make some tough decisions in her life. She dropped out of college to pursue a career in Bollywood. However, she was very ambitious. She completed her studies till 12th grade from Mithibai College in Mumbai. She also took admission at Government Law College but didn't pursue it. But not many are aware that Kareena also went to Harvard for a while. Before she made her debut with Refugee back in 2000, she was also interested in computer studies. In one of the episodes with Simi Garewal, she spoke about this exciting event from her life. © Instagram/Kareena Kapoor Khan She said, "Honestly, Harvard was just like to have a good time and have a blast." She also mentioned that her mother and sister did not wish for her to go to Harvard University for three months, but she was adamant about the preparation. She also filled out forms and studied Microcomputers and Information Technology there. Simi also mentioned that how going to Harvard was more significant than winning an Oscar. Kareena responded saying, "Oh God! It was the biggest thing ever. Everyone was reacting that my niece, my this, my that has gone to Harvard. Kapoor girl, no brains, has gone to Harvard. They all were overreacting. No one could believe that I had gone to Harvard. They all celebrated." © Instagram/Kareena Kapoor Khan However, after going to Harvard, things did not work out for her. She said, "I wouldn't really call it a party. It was tough. I would get up at 4.30 in the morning, in the library, trying to get my assignments done." © Instagram/Kareena Kapoor Khan She then decided to pursue her actual dream of becoming an actor. Post Refugee, the actress did several other movies like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, 3 Idiots, Heroine, Jab We Met etc. Kareena was last seen in Angrezi Medium opposite Irrfan Khan and will be seen in Laal Singh Chaddha next.

  13. If her view turns out to be correct, Elizabeth's great-grandson, Prince George, 8, who is third in line to the throne after his grandfather Charles, 72, and father Prince William, 39, would not become king.
  14. Men Will Be Men! © Youtube/Imperial Blue We've all heard that tagline while watching the hilarious and at times questionable advertisements by the brand Imperial Blue Music CDs on TV. Well, while we may relate to all those ads, there should also be a tagline that should go like, "Only Men Know Men!" Now, while that tagline may not be the most catchy but we know that we men/boys end up getting into really strange and at times embarrassing situations that only we can understand. © Prime Video Well, without waiting any longer let's get to the 8 of our most Oops moments in real life that will make guys go like, "Bhai! Woh Joint pass kariyo!" 1. ***** Getting Caught In Zipper © Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment I know that this mostly happens when we are younger and rushing to get dressed for going to school or well, Rahul ya Shreya ki birthday party. Needless to say, it really is extremely painful and embarrassing. When you were younger, you could call your mummy or your bohot accha dost to help you out, but what if this happens when you're old? Yeah, bro, it still happens to some and is still equally painful and embarrassing. A word of advice- always be extra careful during your bathroom trips, especially after drinking at parties. 2. Boner In Public © Pexels What Do We Say? Yeh Kab, Kaise Hojaye, you can neither understand nor know for real. It really has a freaking brain of its own. (What is it, boy? What do you see?) Thankfully, if you're carrying a bag with you in a bus or metro, you can suddenly switch to "I'm Scared Of Being Pick-pocketed" Mode. And if you are in public (and it's not listening to you), just turn around and start running. 3. Forgetting A Condom On Judgement Day © Istock Everything is set. You've imagined this for such a long time. You are right there and the girl you really, really like wants you to take that step forward. But you check your pockets to take a condom out, and hello! Your Kismat says, "Woh Udhar Camera Ki Taraf Dekhiye. Aapke Saath Chota Sa Prank Hua Hai!" This is really one of those moments where you don't know what to say to your girl that is really turned on. "Baby! Mai Bas Abhi Aya!" (Bhaag Milkha Bhaag!) 4. Getting Caught While Checking Out Another Girl © Istock See guys, everyone checks out everyone. Your girlfriend may also check out other girls or boys if they are very appealing. And you know what? That's absolutely normal. However, unlike women, men in general sometimes forget the thin line between checking someone out and actually staring at someone. Well, guess what? Your girlfriend is right there with you to catch you in the act. It is truly one of the very embarrassing moments where you go like, "Oh No! I thought she reminded me of someone I knew back in school/college!" Yeah, bro, totally! It reminded you of a really hot girl. We get it. Unfortunately for you, your girlfriend gets it too. 5. Calling Your Girlfriend By Ex's Name © Prime Video Do whatever you want to in life but don't end up doing this. Even if you never really think about your ex but your zubaan, like so many other times, can end up betraying you. As a result, you end up saying Priya instead of Rhea. Now if you ever wanted to know the importance of the difference between a few English language letters, this might just be it. I don't know about breakups, but you better gift her something really nice for her birthday. Or at least cello-tape your lips for some time while she rightfully bashes you left, right and center. Sorry, but unfortunately, this really is an unforgivable sin. 6. Tearing Your Pants In Public © Jio Cinema This has happened to me so many times during school, and judging by the quality of the pants in all Indian schools, let's admit that it is highly likely to have happened once in a lifetime for most people. It doesn't matter whether you belonged to the group of a cool bunch of studs or were a normal school-going child like most, it's often said that the sound of those pants ripping apart during school is one of the loudest things heard on the planet. What To Do After This? Well, there are two options: (i) Pay anything to the Godman, that is your tailor, working nearest to your school. Or best (ii) Change Schools. 7. False Waving! © Istock Life in general can be really cruel. I mean, one second you're sitting and eating something with your friends, minding your own business. And suddenly, this cute girl you know or don't know comes out of nowhere and waves in your direction. Now, before you have time to react, your right-hand says to your innocent brain and heart, "I got this," and ends up going up on its own and waving back. Only for you to later realize that the hand-wave was not meant for you, but for someone else. Now, if that is not worse, the fact that other people might end up watching the whole ordeal really makes you wish you had enough money in the bank to move to a new country. 8. Loud Public Farts © Disney Plus Hotstar This is clearly your body's way of preparing you for all the tough things that life might actually through at you in the future.However, this still takes the cake. Out of all the embarrassing things out there in the world, this happens to everyone in the world, regardless of one's gender. But unfortunately for men, the fact remains that women are certainly more skilled at being careful of their surroundings than men. Gotta give it to them! They know a lot of ways around life that we can take notes from. Anyway, there is no coming back from this. Once it's heard, you become the newest celebrity on the block with the fame sure coming at a huge cost. However, the good thing is, that it happens to the best of us and it'll be long forgotten once there is a new candidate in town. And trust me, there will be. View the full article
