  1. ‎مسافر نے کنویں سے پانی بھرتی عورت سے مانگ کر پانی پیا۔ ‎عورت مہذب، خوبصورت اور اپنے اطوار سے نہایت ہی بھلی اور معصوم سی لگتی تھی۔ ‎آدمی نے پوچھا؛ تم نے کبھی عورتوں کی مکاری کے بارے میں تو نہیں سُنا ہوگا؟ ‎عورت نے پانی بھرنا چھوڑا اور ایک اونچی دھاڑ مار کر اتنے زور سے چیخ و پُکار کرتے ہوئے رونا شروع کیا کہ گاؤں کے لوگ بھی اس کی آہ و پکار سُن لیں۔ ‎آدمی عورت کی اس حرکت سے خوفزدہ ہوکر بولا، ‎تم ایسا کیوں اور کس لئے کر رہی ہو؟ عورت نے کہا؛ تاکہ گاؤں والے آ کر تجھے قتل کر ڈالیں کیونکہ تو نے مجھے تکلیف دی ہے اور میرا دل دُکھایا ہے۔ آدمی گھگھیاتے ہوئے بولا؛ میری بات سُنو، ‎میں ایک مسکین اور اپنے کام سے کام رکھنے والا مسافر ہوں ، ‎میں بھلا کیونکر تمہیں تکلیف پہنچاؤں گا؟ ‎میں تو بس تمہاری معصومیت سے متاثر ہوا تھا تو پوچھ بیٹھا کہ تم نے تو یقیناً عورتوں کی مکاری کے بارے میں کبھی نہیں سُن رکھا ہوگا؟ ‎تم ایک مہذب اور حسین و جمیل عورت ہو، مگر میں خدا خوفی رکھنے والا انسان ہوں، ‎مجھے تم سے کیا لینا دینا کہ موقع پا کر تم سے بات کرنے کی خواہش کرونگا؟ ‎اس بار عورت نے اپنا مشکیزہ اُٹھا کر اپنے اوپر اُنڈیل کر اپنے آپ کو پانی سے تربتر کر لیا۔ ‎آدمی کی حیرت اس بار اور بھی دو چند ہوگئی۔ ‎پوچھا اب کیا ہوا کہ تُم نے اتنی محنت سے کنویں سے نکالا پانی اپنے اوپر ڈال کر اپنے آپ کو بھگو لیا۔ ‎ابھی یہ بات ہو ہی رہی تھی کہ گاؤں والے لوگ کنویں تک پہنچ گئے۔ ‎عورت نے اُن لوگوں کو بتایا کہ میں کنویں میں گر گئی تھی۔ ‎اور آج اگر یہ مُسافر یہاں نہ ہوتا اور مجھے باہر نا کھینچتا تو میں مر ہی گئی تھی۔ ‎لوگوں نے اس آدمی کے اس احسان کے بدلے اُسے گلے لگا کر شکریہ ادا کیا اور اُس کی ہمت و جوانمردی کا تذکرہ کرنے لگے۔ ‎گاؤں کے لوگوں کے ساتھ عورت واپس جانے لگی تو اس آدمی نے پوچھا، اپنی ان دونوں حرکتوں کے پیچھے تمہاری کیا حکمت و دانائی تھی یہ تو بتاتی جاؤ ! ‎عورت کہنے لگی کہ بس اسی طرح ہی ہر عورت ہوا کرتی ہے؛ ‎اگر اُسے اذیت دو گے تو تمہیں قتل کرا دینے سے کم پر راضی نہیں ہوگی۔اور اگر آُسے راضی اور خوش رکھو گے تو تمہیں بھی خوش و خرم رکھے گی۔ Translated Version Passengers ask for water recruitment from the wells, water beloved. The woman was civilized, beautiful and very good with her shortcomings and was innocent. The man asked; you have never heard about women's guile? The woman left the water and killed a high roar and started crying with so loud, that the people of the village would also listen to her sigh. The man said to be afraid of this move of the woman, Why are you doing this? The woman said; so that the village will kill you, because you have hurt me, and my heart is duḵھạy̰ạ. The man gھgھy̰ạtے said; my word is materialistic, I am a needy and a traveler to work with my work, How will I be able to hurt you? I was just impressed by your innocence, so ask, " you have never heard about women's guile You are a civilized and a beautiful woman, but I am a man who is going to be they, What do I want to do with you to get the chance to talk to you? This time the woman picked up his follows and pour her to her and trbtr her from water. The Man's surprise this time and also got two. Asked, " what is the matter with you that you pulled out the wells from the wells, the water took your top and gw yourself It was now that the people of the village reached the wells. The woman told them that I was fell in the wells. And today, if it was not here, and I would have been able to do so, I would have died. The people gave him a hug of this man, thank him, and he started to mention his courage. With the people of the village, the woman was going to go back, then the man asked, " what is your wisdom behind these two actions, so tell me! The woman said, " just like that every woman happened; If you hurt her , she will not be pleased to kill you, and if you are pleased and rejoice, you will be happy.
  2. Russia is planning to disconnect the entire country from the internet in order to simulate cyberwar on the country. Russians ISPs will be required to redirect web traffic from routing points within the country that will be approved by the government's telecom watchdog. © Reuters Just like every other country, Russia currently uses the global framework to connect with devices all over the world. This will be a move by the country to test cyber security and the country's capability for independent internet that does not depend on global systems. The temporary disconnection takes place in the next few weeks. © Pexels During the disconnection, the country will also rely on its own version of Domain Name System (DNS), the directory of web domains and addresses. The experiment is a part of Russia's Digital Economy National Program which aims to protect the country's digital infrastructure even if other countries cut it off. According to a report by ZDNet “The Kremlin's ultimate goal for the program is to wean the country off foreign internet providers and keep the Russian internet independent so it would be protected against potential cyber attacks,” © Pexels Since all web traffic in Russia will pass through the government's routing points, it potentially means that Moscow will be able to censor the Internet, just like in China. China's internet censorship system, also known as the Great Firewall, blocks websites and censors certain words from social media to prevent citizens from seeing content unfavourable to the regime.
  3. Shaving might seem to be an extremely simple affair, but it's not. Every man has had bad experiences with shaving, at least once in his life, and it definitely is one of those experiences that one does not want a repeat of. (c) Getty Images There is a correct way and a wrong way to shave, but the trouble is that no one quite knows which is which. You're supposed to glide your razor across your face in a specific direction, that has to do with the usual hair growth pattern on a human male face. Following that pattern will reduce cuts and burns significantly, and also make sure that the stubble that grows afterwards is flawless. (c) Getty Images All you need to do is look at the face shave map here, and follow the arrows to determine the direction in which your razor should move. Make sure to rinse your razor after every stroke. (c) MensXP Say hello to a flawless shave! You're welcome.
  4. Apple has changed the primary charging and data transfer port once, and people weren't so happy about it. While new ports bring in better features, it means we need to buy accompanying cables and this simply adds unnecessary cost to the product. The iPhone initially came with a Dock connector, consisting of a 30 pin port. Then came the Lightning Port, it was psignificantly smaller and had a satisfying click to it. According to recent reports, Apple may soon make a shift to USB-C with the new iPhones. © WikiMedia Yes, the lightning port is more than capable. But a shift to USB-C means a universal port for all gadgets in Apple's portfolio. The MacBook already has it, the new iPad has it, and now the iPhone. You can use the same cable for all the devices in the ecosystem, meaning the cost to acquire these cables 'll l will actually come down over a period of time. Even though USB-C should technically reduce the need of adapters as more and more peripherals support the port out of the box, you have to remember that old iPhone accessories are compatible only with Lightning. Apple chargers sell for roughly US$ 25 (Rs 1,500) for an official cable and replica versions are also available for far less. © Apple Last week, Anand Mahindra tweeted how he needs to buy new cables every time a new Apple product is bought. This issue may soon come to an end once all Apple products are supporting USB-C. The Android world has embraced the port long back, and even budget phones are housing one. Bloomberg also reports that the upcoming iPhone will have a triple camera setup, like some Android counterparts. The third camera will have a more powerful zoom, a higher resolution and a wider field of view than any camera on today's iPhones. © Reuters Going a step further, the 2020 iPhone is reported to have a 3D camera system that can sense distance and measure depth through lasers, improving the iPhone's handling of augmented-reality apps and features. Additionally, the Live Photos feature will mean that it can capture videos that are six seconds long, instead of just three seconds.
  5. The entire craze of rehashing old songs to suit the millennial palate is getting a little out of hands now I guess. Not all copies and remakes are great and some just end up being the opposite of what one might call an 'eargasm' and also ruins all your memories attached to the original. The latest victim that made it to the 'nay' in the remake list is the iconic song 'Poster Lagwa Do' from the upcoming romcom called 'Luka Chuppi' which stars Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon. Now before we dissect the song, let's just first listen to it. The song has been sung (or shall I say ruined) by Mika and Sunanda Sharma, two very well known names in the Punjabi industry. I absolutely love Sunanda's voice and her previous outings which includes these two fab numbers: Now I don't know why she suddenly sounds like Dhinchak Pooja in this new song and we thought all remakes were supposed to be done by Neha Kakkar, a voice we miss in this song. Netizens are also not happy with this number at all. Disappointed with #PosterLagwaDo song Female singer ruined it ð¡ — AKKIAN YOGESHá´·áµË¢áµÊ³â±ð¥ð¥ (@akkiLoverYogesh) January 29, 2019 #PosterLagwaDo shit song — Reki (@iamrekiraj) January 29, 2019 after hearing #PosterLagwaDo , had to hear the old one 4 times to get over it...!! — मà¥à¤à¤¬à¤à¤à¥ मालवणॠ(@malvnimumbaikar) January 29, 2019 Not kidding, you actually have to listen to the original track to forget this new rendition. The original song was in 'Aflatoon' which starred Akshay Kumar and Urmila Matondkar in the lead. Kriti and Kartik are currently busy promoting their movie which actually looks really great to be honest and even took a little help from Akshay Kumar himself. View this post on Instagram Poster lagenge fir ek baar !! ð Thankk you Akshay Sir!! @akshaykumar You are the bestt!! â¤ï¸ð¤ #PosterLagwaDo Out Tomorrow at 11am.

  6. Bobby Deol celebrated his 50th birthday yesterday and like a tradition now, if it's your birthday and you do not post on social media about the gratitude and the love that you are enduring then basically it is considered to be pure sacrilege. View this post on Instagram Bob's 50th.. ð Happy Happy ⤠A post shared by Bobby Deol (@bobby_deol_official_fanpage) on Jan 27, 2019 at 4:11am PST View this post on Instagram #repost ð Bob's BIRTHDAY ð A post shared by Bobby Deol (@bobby_deol_official_fanpage) on Jan 27, 2019 at 5:54am PST So even though it was the handsome actor's 50th birthday, he ended up gifting something to the internet instead, i.e- a picture with his handsome, extra good looking son, Aryaman Deol. View this post on Instagram If that's how it feels!! Being 49 was amazing .. 50 is going to be even better ... I reminiscence the life experiences I have been through and how they have made me grow as an individual. I take the same opportunity to remember the amount of love that all of you dear to me have given me. It is this love that is my strength which keeps me going. My son is symbolic to this change. Finding a friend in his young father. I hope to continue living my life happily with all of you loved ones.

Netizens are thanking Bobby for this gift and cannot stop claiming just how handsome his son is! No Bollywood plans have been announced for Aryaman yet but in the meanwhile, Sunny's son Karan Deol is already gearing up for his big debut. Aryaman has already impressed paps with his airport looks and personal fashion statement and let's just say having good looking parents have really done him wonders.

  7. They say a true man is shaped not only by his success, or his wealth but also by the goodness that's in his heart. It's not determined by his possessions but only if he shares them with the world for the betterment of mankind. Hollywood, for one, is blessed with philanthropists who have gone the extra mile to give back to the society to be remembered for their goodness. Here are five Hollywood icons who continue their efforts of making the world a better place, one good thing at a time: George Clooney George Clooney is well known for his engagement to stop the human rights atrocities in the Darfur region of Sudan. Clooney founded the Not On Our Watch with his 'Ocean's 11' co-stars Don Cheadle, Matt Damon, and Brad Pitt, and producer Jerry Weintraub, which works to uplift the suffering populations of Sudan. His charity has donated millions of dollars to help those suffering in the region. Clooney was named the United Nations Messenger of Peace in 2008, to help raise public awareness, and support for the U.N's peacekeeping efforts around the world. Hugh Jackman The Wolverine star started The Laughing Man Foundation, which through its chain of coffee shops, supports coffee farming communities across the world by investing in programs that focus on health, growth, and success for coffee farmers and their families. Started after a promise made by the star to his friend, an Ethiopian coffee farmer, Dukale and his family, the Foundation works for supporting the production of sustainable coffee and communities associated with it. Leonardo DiCaprio Since 1998 The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation has been working to protect threatened ecosystems with a focus on Wildlands Conservation, Oceans Conservation and Climate Change. With over 50 million followers, the star's impactful work was recognized when he was designated as the United Nations Messenger of Peace for Climate Change and received the 2014 Clinton Global Citizen Award. Following the notion of great deeds, here's a striking video by Seagram's 100 Pipers Music CDs, that reminds us that the greatest legacy one can leave behind, is an act of goodness – an act that makes the world a better place. Matt Damon Actor-producer-screenwriter, Matt Damon started H2O Africa in an attempt to mitigate the water crisis in Africa and gather support for clean water programs in critical areas. His organization merged later with Water.org that focuses on providing clean water to underprivileged across the world. He is also an ambassador for ONEXONE, a non-profit foundation committed to supporting, preserving and improving the lives of children. Will Smith The MIB star with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, founded the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation to benefit inner-city community development, youth educational projects and underprivileged children and their families. He has also supported several charitable organizations that work in South Africa. Heartwarming, isn't it?
  8. We are all aware of how hard the Indian Cricket Team is gearing up right now for the upcoming World Cup 2019 that begins in May, however, there are two other people who are also working on their batting skills. We're talking about Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan. © Instagram Katrina and Salman are currently filming their upcoming project, 'Bharat' and whenever the two get time, they start playing cricket with the crew. Honestly, watching the two playing on the film's sets can make anyone think that they are working on a sports biopic, but that's just their way of chilling after pack up. Earlier, Salman had posted the video of him playing cricket, with the caption "Bharat khelega..." View this post on Instagram Bharat Khelega... #onlocationstories @bharat_thefilm A post shared by Salman Khan (@beingsalmankhan) on Jan 13, 2019 at 7:50am PST Today, Katrina posted a video of her playing cricket and let's admit it, she's pretty good at the sport. In fact, Katrina is so confident of her batting skills that she even asked her 'Zero' co-star Anushka Sharma to put in a small word for her to the team's captain, Virat Kohli. She wrote, "Pack up ke baad at Bharat sets, as the world cup nears. Anushka Sharma, perhaps you could put in a small word for me with the captain of the team. Some room for improvement in my swing, but overall not a bad all-rounder." View this post on Instagram Pack up ke baad #bharat sets as the World Cup nears @anushkasharma perhaps u could put in a small word for me with the captain of the team ðð»âï¸some room for improvement in my swing, but over all not a bad all rounder ð #apnatimeaayega ð½@kkulsumsyeda A post shared by Katrina Kaif (@katrinakaif) on Jan 21, 2019 at 10:18pm PST In fact, all this was happening with our Ranveer Singh rapping in the background. No, you won't find him in the video because he's not physically present in the video. It's his song 'Apna Time Aayega' from 'Gully Boy' that is playing in the video. While Anushka Sharma hasn't replied to the video yet, looks like Preity Zinta already wants to take Katrina in her IPL team. She wrote, "Wow, we should hire you" and Katrina replied saying, "Do it, come on let me play." © Instagram 'Bharat' is said to be based on a Korean movie called 'An Ode To My Father' and is expected to release in June 2019.
  9. It's honestly a struggle for women to find a man who will fit into the bracket of being the perfect husband. Obviously, it works both ways but since we love writing for men, let us tell you that women, inevitably, when they start dating you, skim through your qualities so that you fit the relationship quotient. Apart from being charismatic, confident and good in bed, there are numerous other qualities you should possess to make a good husband to a woman who deserves your effort. (c)Getty Images Mostly, we all are under the misconception that women and men alike date partners that are different from the partners they chose when they want to get married. While it may be true in some cases, most cases, we believe, you'd want that constancy in your life of having to wake to the same person every day. So, if you're a man looking to finally plunge into the marriageable route, you need to be ready for that and have certain qualities that make women want to get married too, to gravitate towards you. Here are 5 essential qualities you should possess in order to make a good husband: (1) Be There For Her Even When It's Inconvenient For You Yes, I know you'd ask that why do you have to be there all the time and that you too have a life that's equally important. Some may even counter saying she likes her independence so why do you need to bend over backwards to do things for her. But you see, partnerships require compromise and sacrifice and you're not choosing to date her but spend your life with her. There are times when she may fall weak. Like when she's having a baby with you or when she's going through menopause. You can't leave her in these tough times and venture off thinking you have a life of your own. You have bigger responsibilities towards your partner now and it's good to start displaying them when you're in a relationship with her, in order for her to know, you'll be around through thick and thin. (c)Getty Images (2) You Have To Accept Her Flaws Maybe when you're dating someone you can count their flaws and tell them to make correctives. But if you're seriously considering spending your life with someone and hoping they see you the same way, then you need to accept their flaws and accept who and what they are. If you want to address them so the person knows a few things are unruly, then you should do that. But make sure you do it without making her feel guilty that she has flaws in the first place. She shouldn't be hiding her true self from you because she thinks you may not accept her. Make your acceptance of her as an important person in your life, from the start. (c)Getty Images (3) A Keen Sense of Responsibility Is Important You can be enamoured by her, profess all your love towards her but if you're not responsible, there is no way she's ever going to consider marrying you. She sees responsibility as an inevitable bargain between two people in a relationship. It gives her direction towards the future. If you show her you're a responsible human being, she will want to pursue the idea of you, in her future. For her, responsibility from you goes synonymously with nurturing and taking care of the children you may want to have, of the future you two hold and other important aspects in a marriage. So, it's time you pull up your socks and gather a sense of being responsible, not just for you, but for her too. (c)Getty Images (4) You Need To Be Open In Your Communication Communication can get tough sometimes when you need to open up about yourself, but in a relationship which is serious, that's something which should be involuntary. If you don't open up and communicate your hopes, fears and dreams then the relationship is quite superficial. Sometimes the best people move away because there isn't any communication between them. If you and she have trouble opening up about things and healthily communicating, maybe find ways to do so more effectively. Communication is the key to a good and harmonious relationship. (c)Getty Images (5) Infidelity Doesn't Make A Good Husband Men always tend to lean toward infidelity. There isn't an established reason for it yet, but somewhere down the line, cheating becomes inevitable. It's not blaming or something to pinpoint. It's a fact and if you think one woman is never enough for you, you probably need to either communicate that with your partner or move away. You can even see if you want to be in an open relationship/marriage with her, in case you do want her in your life but can't trust yourself enough. That way, you're honest to her about things. But make sure the decision to do that is mutual. Most marriages break because of infidelity and if you're someone who cheats, it's good to spell it out way before. (c)Getty Images Making these characteristic changes is not easy, I agree, but sometimes things need to be mended to make space for newer, better things. If you feel you're someone who can change to adapt and bring in a truer sense of companionship to your life, then try and make these changes and one day you will make a great husband to someone!
  10. In the ever-changing age of the digital world, social media, from being a simple platform that initially came to fore with the promise of helping people to keep in touch and keep up with one another, has, now, gone on to become 'the thing' for people. No relationship is considered real unless it's posted on the likes of Facebook and Instagram. Happiness is now measured by the number of vacation photos you share on your social media profile. There is so much and, still, much more. Then, there are those social media trends that get the users spell-bound, making it almost imperative for others to participate while inflicting FOMO (another irritating new-age lingo) if they don't. Staying true to its nature, social media has a new trend for everyone to follow - '10 Year Challenge'. A harmless fad, right? Or, is it (that's questionable). (Plus,minus)- 10 Year Challenge ðð @rogerfederer #10yearchallenge pic.twitter.com/2lAvyKMNj6 — Belinda Bencic (@BelindaBencic) January 17, 2019 The rules are pretty simple: you simply upload two photographs of yourself - usually side by side - which were taken at least ten years apart. What's the overall message here, you'd ask? It's again simple: self-love and showing the world how you've 'glowed up' (in other words, showing how you haven't aged a day). The '10 Year Challenge' is already a rage on the social media platforms. Facebook, Instagram and Twitter; you name it. The collage of photos would have thronged your feed on social media. From cricketers to footballers and politicians to actors, everyone has been happily riding the bandwagon. And, why not, in the age where information is second-handed (read digital) and real life is secondary, social media trends is the oxygen you cannot do without. But, amid all the crazy collages of people we've seen, there came one from Rohit Sharma that stands apart from the rest. The only #10YearChallenge we should be worried about pic.twitter.com/Tph0EZUbsR — Rohit Sharma (@ImRo45) January 17, 2019 Using the '10 Year Challenge' fad as an opportunity, the Indian opener highlighted one of the long-standing problems that might soon spell doom for the mankind. Taking to Twitter, the Mumbai batsman shared a collage of photos of the marine life where the one from 2009 was colourful and lively, while the one from 2019 was dull and dusty. He captioned the post with a valid point: "The only #10YearChallenge we should be worried about". In the year, where we all were going gaga about the stock image of an egg beating Kylie Jenner's record of the most-liked photo on Instagram, before Netflix's 'Bird Box' had people running around blindfolded, Rohit has set a much-needed precedent for celebrities and fans alike, showing that such social media trends can actually be used responsibly, and for something good. And, while there are already rife allegations that the collages of the photos that we all have been happily sharing on the social media could very well be used as data to test the facial recognition algorithms, people must proceed with due diligence. After all, humans are the connective link between physical and digital worlds. It's human interactions that make the 'Internet of Things' interesting. And, sadly, our data is the fuel that makes businesses smarter and more profitable.

He has accurate headshots leading to over 10 kill-to-death ratio in PUBG Mobile.
  12. A letter issued by CEO Tim Cook addressed to investors said that Apple is expecting a $9 billion loss in revenue due to weak iPhone sales. Cook goes on to explain that this was partly because of people replacing their batteries on older iPhones. © BCCL Apple admitted to throttling older iPhones which let to the company offering cheaper battery replacements as compensation to users. The battery replacing fee was cut down by $50 which encouraged users to simply replace older batteries because their iPhones still worked like a charm. © Akshay Bhalla_MensXP Instead of upgrading their iPhones to the latest model, users preferred to replace the batteries instead of spending $1000 on a new iPhone. User's also learned how to turn off the throttling feature which resulted in better performance for older iPhones. The new iOS 12 update also improved performance on older iPhones which discouraged a lot of users from upgrading to the latest model. "Some customers taking advantage of significantly reduced pricing for iPhone battery replacement," he noted. © Pexels Cook also addressed facing growth difficulties in emerging markets such as India and Cina due to the strength of the dollar. In order to counter this issue, Apple may start manufacturing their flagship devices in India to curb the excessive tariffs imposed by the Indian Government on imported smartphones. Having said that, Cook's letter is only indicative of the difficulties faced by the company and should not be referenced for concrete sales numbers. As Bloomberg points out “this isn't to say that Apple's business is falling apart. It is still generating levels of revenue and cash flow that are the envy of the corporate world.” Source: Bloomberg
  13. We were all desperately waiting for the 'Avengers 4' trailer and then when it came out, after watching it, someone basically thought, “hmm, it's good but it needs Deadpool to make it better” and I think that's beautiful. Just to clarify, no that someone wasn't Ryan Reynolds as we would expect (but I mean I am sure Ryan definitely did think that but we're talking about someone else right now). The original 'Avengers: Endgame' trailer was brutal, to say the least; Tony Stark is slowly dying in space, almost everyone is dead, Thor looks defeated, Captain America is crying. There's just too many bad things happening but this parody trailer kind of takes some of the pain away because it's Deadpool and you know it's going to be hilarious. Starting off, it's not Tony sending a message to Pepper, but Deadpool talking to a Wolverine mask, so basically already off the best start. “Part of journey is the end, and I'm mad at Fox we couldn't do a film together.” Then it goes on to giving the best description of Thanos ever - “purple Homer Simpson.” I mean, it's better than my purple grape. Then, back at Avengers HQ, we have Deadpool looking at the Deadpool or actually Wade Wilson being dead. Such a sad moment. © YouTube You know what was one of the best parts of the original trailer? Hawkeye's entry but Deadpool improved it. Forget Peggy Carter, we have Deadpool looking at Hugh Jackman, obviously. And then, Deadpool was blonde. “I hope this doesn't work.” “Let's hope it does because I don't want to see a fifth Avengers movie.” In the end, we get another name for Thanos - “That Bruce Willis looking asshole.” Here's the weirdest and best Avengers-Deadpool crossover you'll ever see:
  14. Today, we're not going to be talking about the on-court exploits of NBA superstars. Instead, we're going to be talking about men who believed being good was more important than being a superstar. We're not saying a good person can't be a superstar (as is evidenced by a few people on our list). All we're trying to say is these men believed in being good role models first and everything else came after. Michael Jordan It goes without saying that one of the most recognizable names in basketball is also one of the most charitable. Instead of going into all his philanthropic exploits, we're going to talk about just one. A very important one. © Getty Images The Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinics. In Jordan's own words, the clinics will, “help provide a brighter and healthier future for the children and families they serve.” LeBron James There are hardly any lists of basketball players which LeBron can't wiggle his way onto. That's the case here as well. For someone who is the face of the NBA for many, LeBron hasn't let his superstar status get in the way of him being a good person. © Getty Images What did he do? He opened a school. A public school that helps at-risk kids. If that's not a sign of philanthropy, what is? Tim Duncan You could call Tim one of the greatest power forwards of all time. Need proof? He was a part of the All-NBA team 13 seasons in a row. Now that's quite the achievement, wouldn't you say? © Getty Images But, Tim didn't let that superstar status get to him. He set up a foundation of his own called the Tim Duncan Foundation. Through his foundation he helps thousands with health awareness and also funds multiple youth sports. Adonal Foyle Okay, Foyle is not one of the biggest names of the NBA. But, his career off the court is a substantial one for sure. © Getty Images His tireless humanitarian work also got him inducted into the World Sport Humanitarian Hall of Fame in 2009. We also must mention Democracy Matters, his group which only has one goal, spreading democracy.
  15. Earlier this year, the nation was gripped by a gigantic wave of frenzy courtesy Netflix's ever-entertaining original series 'Sacred Games'. Social media platforms went into a tizzy with critics and the audience lauding the makers for producing an epic, gripping series. But much like all the other things that become popular in today's time and day, 'Sacred Games' too wasn't spared by netizens when it came to getting a kick out of its idiosyncrasies. A gazillion memes followed and well, we sure had a field day with it. Fast forward to November and Amazon Prime Video came out with its own original series that has received great reviews since its release. However, the show's dark humour and stellar dialogues have given meme-makers the perfect reason to go on a meme-spree, and we are personally loving the results! We have loved Bablu and Guddu and their epic deliveries on the show, whereas Munna is in a league of his own. Tripathi and his temper never cease to pull us deeper into the show, but it is really the culmination of all of their acts, that makes this show so LIT! But the memes, those are even better.

  16. Who doesn't like a 'champi'? For the uninitiated, 'champi' is the other name given to an Indian head massage that all of us grew up with. Is there anything in the world that feels more satisfying? Isn't it just like a party on your head? If that wasn't enough, it turns out there are a lot of surprising benefits associated with it. Here are 5 of them: 1. The Indian head massage improves lymphatic drainage and improves blood circulation through the neck, thereby detoxifying the body. © Cavanreflexology 2. A champi increases the flow of oxygen to the brain, and helps one reduce anxiety, and is also helpful in dealing with depression in the long run. © Zelcamassage 3. Apart from moisturizing and conditioning the scalp, it also helps in strengthening the hair shaft - ultimately reducing dandruff, split ends, and hair breakage. © Feelgoodlearnandmassage 4. Stimulating the pressure points in the neck, upper back, and shoulders can lead to the loosening of knots, and better blood circulation in the muscles - thereby giving one instant relief in case of a stiff neck and back. © Glasgowmessage 5. An Indian head massage is an intrinsic part of Ayurvedic healing therapies. It is believed that applying pressure on the correct points can renew your energy levels and help you become incredibly aware of your surroundings. © Varbergs Stadshotell Time for a champi, we bet!
  17. Antioxidants are a craze right now. Almost every health, herbal or wellness product is marketed as rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are marketed in such a way, that people think that they are the holy grail of good health. But yet again, that's just false. If not entirely, but certainly a large part of what is advertised. © Pixabay You'll find antioxidants added to anything and everything from fruit juices, smoothies, and even cosmetics. Some of the so-called benefits of antioxidants are as follows: 1. They slow down the ageing process considerably. 2. They enhance your immune system. 3. They are good for your heart health 4. They help to lower your risk of infections and some forms of cancer. Now, these claims aren't completely false but the hype train of getting in as many antioxidants as you can is simply crazy. What Are These Antioxidants And Why Are People Going Gaga Over Them? Let's Have A Look Antioxidants are substances that help stop substances called free radicals. Free radicals are substances that cause damage to your cells, which is called oxidation. Oxidation, if unchecked can cause diseases like cancer, heart diseases and also faster ageing. Getting into the science of it, free radicals lack electrons which they tend to take from your cells, antioxidants stop them from doing so by providing that missing electron to the free radicals. You must now be thinking that this is a good thing and we should start ingesting more and more antioxidants. Well, this way of thinking is the root cause of many problems. More isn't always the equivalent of better. Taking extreme doses of antioxidants thinking it'll help slow the ageing process and prevent cancer, is just stupid. Some even go to the lengths of rubbing creams containing antioxidants in the hopes that it will somehow save them from wrinkles. But Why Are More Antioxidants Not Good? © Pixabay Because there has been plenty of research on this field and the data is pretty conclusive that eating more antioxidants than you need to is not good for health. There have been a number of researches on smokers, where people who took higher doses of antioxidants were found to have more lung cancer than people who did not. Here are a couple of them: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18429004?ordinalpos=1&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8602180?ordinalpos=155&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum What Too Many Antioxidants Do! The reason why taking in too many antioxidants can be a problem is that, if taken in excess, it can have a sort of pro-oxidant instead of an antioxidant effect. So, if you take too many antioxidants, they will help with and contribute to the oxidation process rather than stopping it. There is also an argument that if you take too many antioxidants, you suppress your body's natural antioxidant defence mechanisms. There is more and more research coming on the subject and all of it unanimously do not paint a good picture on taking in more antioxidants than you need to. A recent meta analysis even linked high doses of single antioxidants with increased mortality. Moderation Is The Key In the end, I would say that as is with everything else in life, moderation is the key here as well. In moderation, antioxidants do have a number of benefits but taking them in excess when there isn't a need to do so, is only going to be detrimental to your health. How to get your daily dose of antioxidants? Eat your fruits and veggies and take a generic multivitamin if you want, you'll get the antioxidants that you need. But for your own good, please leave the antioxidant supplements on the store counter.

  18. Every year, a solitary bylane in Delhi's South Moti Bagh lights up with the flicker of several diyas and candles that dot the many flat surfaces along the lonely path. Nobody can be seen in the immediate vicinity, nobody you can credit for the cheerful act, and yet the glowing street manages to fill your heart with the happy spirit of the season. Diwali is here, and we have the entire city to show for it! Diwali - the festival of lights, also happens to be India's most favourite festival. The entire nation comes together to celebrate the occasion as one; regardless of the boundaries, languages and cultures that might separate them on other days. © Flickr For most of us, Diwali evokes glad memories of colourful Chinese lights gracing every inch of the verandah at home, wearing sparkling new clothes, gobbling up a hell lot of mithai and namkeen, and of course, the deafening sounds of crackers and glittering sparklers that filled our silly, childish heart with endless mirth. However, this year, the aforementioned tradition, and the nostalgia it welcomes year after year, might undergo a major change. After Supreme Court's order pushing for a 'green' Diwali, only those fireworks falling under permissible noise and smoke levels shall be allowed for use this Diwali, and that too only between 8 - 10 pm. © wikipedia SC's verdict comes as a welcome news for Delhiites, who are literally struggling to breathe post-Dussehra celebrations. With the city's Air Quality Index (AQI) recorded at season's highest at 337 on Saturday as per CPCB records, it would do all of us great good to break away from our age-old traditions and conform to the ban on crackers. Agreed that traditions are fun and emblematic of our cultural heritage, but ancient traditions that don't leave room to accommodate change, and move forward with the changing times only prohibits socio-cultural growth. To establish a more sensitive and progressive society, we need to break away from the shackles of ancient, unjust and harmful traditions. Traditions that not only threaten to squash our fundamental rights, but also prevent a holistic development of the society and its people. © AP The verdict on firecrackers is just one of the latest moves that challenge such regressive traditions. This year, the SC has shown us time and again that we must stand up against laws and traditions that are harmful to society. Be it Section 377 or the Sabarimala Temple verdict, we have seen how moves have been made to discard laws that are harmful to the society. Yet, with each of these decisions that came our way, a certain segment of men in our society stood up against them. They somehow keep overlooking the entitlement they enjoy in our society merely by the virtue of being men. Men are almost never questioned or judged, and the concept of victim-blaming in the case of men is simply non-existent. Remember Mulayam Singh Yadav's outrageous comment in 2015, when he said “boys will be boys...they make mistakes”, expressing his dissent against capital punishment for rape? That's really an honest reflection of the prevailing mindset of the Indian society. © Twitter More recently, with the #MeToo movement's furore gripping the nation, and with the endless accounts of harassment and assault pouring in from women across the country, men have yet again failed to play their part in stepping up, and making a positive impact to the situation by wielding their authority and power to aid women's concerns and voices be heard, and taken seriously. A Facebook user by the name of Bhandari Pb was seen commenting, “A dog at my frnds place licked my toe 5years back...I felt so uncomfortable...Me Too” on a #MeToo post listing the names of the accused. Another user commented on MJ Akbar's resignation with this, “justice has been without court order ... who served justice? feminist court of India?”. Such reactions only go to show how men have taken to trivialising the matter, or defacing the movement by giving it a political colour. In this entire man-made ruckus, what they seemed to have forgotten is that women, who are constantly fighting gazillion other personal and professional battles within the society, have finally decided to break out of the tradition of 'silence'. The tradition that dictates them to stay mum about injustice and assault, who glorify the notion of playing victim instead of rising as a survivor. © Instagram It's time men realised that the onus lies with them to bring about a change and leave behind such practices that harm us, and stubs our growth. Yet, perhaps, there is still hope for us because of men such as retired officer Mr. Datta, who believes that “the #MeToo movement might usher a safer future for my granddaughter." Maybe now men will also learn to think twice before making every single move like the women of our country have done of centuries at a stretch. Or if nothing else they might learn to mind their own business at the very least. The young generation isn't lagging behind either. The unrest around the Sabarimala verdict unsettled CAT aspirant Uday, who believes that, “when the women in our society are expected to further our religious and cultural traditions on all other occasions, when they are the ones following every religious tradition and ritual to the T in our society, then why should they be stopped from seeking God Ayyappan's blessings? They deserve it just as much as anybody else. Young or old.” © BCCL Will more please rise and dare to break the traditions, or at least come out in support of the ones who are fighting to bring about a change? Let's remember the efforts of Raja Ram Mohan Roy who stood up against Sati, the tireless efforts of Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar who fought to legalise widow remarriage, and hail the terrific move of Savitri Bai Phule who went against an orthodox society to open a school for women and untouchables. It's about time the men of our generation stood up to similar challenges in our society today, just like they did.

  20. As I stood on the curb for my ride to work this morning, I could see the man sitting inside his Fortuner on the other side of the road, haggling with a street vendor selling flowers. I wasn't privy to their conversation (disagreements rather) of course, but whatever transpired between the two left the florist visibly upset, as he shouted after the SUV, fast disappearing into the oncoming flow of the Monday morning traffic. The man got his flowers, but something about the exchange had left the vendor with a sullen face. I want to believe it was to do with the money, I might be wrong to make that assumption, but on the other hand, I might be more than right too. © Dharma Productions The incident left a bad taste in my mouth, and it got me thinking, “well, SUV dude, whatever that was, you're gonna have to pay for it elsewhere...you see, karma is a bitch”, but even as I said that to myself, I wasn't quite convinced by it. You see, the man in the swanky SUV still got his flowers, and he'll put them to use for whatever purpose he bought them. By the end of it he'll be a happy man, but the poor vendor will have to make do with his share of money and (bad)luck for the day, and that seemed pretty unfair, presuming that the guy in the SUV could have easily spared a few more bucks to strike a fair deal. Basically, what I am trying to say is that, I wasn't convinced (or ready) to wait for karma to take its own sweet time and bring the rich guy to justice. After all, we're a generation constantly petitioning for all things “instant”, so justice must also be meted out instantly in this case, right? Wrong. I had just witnessed the universe prove me wrong. So, moral of the story, good things will still happen to bad people, and more often than not, karma will terribly fail to don the bitch face, when you most passionately want to see it unfurl. © Dharma Productions Did I just hear some protesting squirms coming from you? But hold your horses for a bit, I have a point to make here. Have you heard of the maxim, “justice delayed is justice denied”? Well, I happen to come from that school of thought. Which means, I want to see justice get served ASAP. But this is India, the land of Gods, and it's also the land of the rich and the powerful. Most of all, it's a land ruled by the ever mighty patriarchy, which has a definite soft spot for the rich and powerful. You know where that leads us, right? Take the ongoing Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar row that's got all the gossip mills across the country churning out updates day in and day out. That's one of the most recent examples to lead you to my point. While it's not proven whether Patekar is guilty or not, it cannot be denied that the reported incident obviously didn't cost him anything over the years, whereas Tanushree had to abandon her dreams and career, under the alleged threats and harassment being meted out to her by Patekar and his “powerful” friends. © Dharma Productions The same trope can be found in Salman Khan's (in)famous hit-and-run case, and we're all well aware of where the case led, and the outcome it bore for the actor. Nothing happened to him, obviously, his popularity, power or career! Be it Salman's charitable venture with 'Being Human' or Patekar's goodwill towards the farmers of Maharashtra, they seem to be able to hide their misdeeds well behind these moves. No, I am not disregarding the good they may have done for the needy, but I am saying that this sure does the job of covering up the mess they leave in their wake. For most people, it becomes enough to forgive and forget these men's bad deeds. And this is the point their fans and defendants step in yapping about the “good” they have been doing for the people. For some strange (read stupid) reason, their outwardly “good deeds” seem to be enough for the lesser endowed people to believe in their “goodness”. © Dharma Productions You may be interested to know that there's an entire research done on the psychology behind this move, and how people feel that by investing in good deeds, one is actually investing in good karma. You can check out the findings of the research here. So, basically, whether I am looking at the guy in the SUV or Salman, or more recently Patekar and his antics, it seems more believable that even though karma is a bitch, good things will continue to happen to bad people, because apparently in the 21st century, you can't even trust karma to get its act right.
  21. Whether it's the girl you are trying to romance or your girlfriend of two years, a good night text is a pretty good ritual to follow at the end of the day, at all times. If nothing else, it works as a short, sweet reminder that she is in your thoughts before you decide to retire for the day. It doesn't matter if you've had good conversations with her throughout the day, if you've just been out on a date that very day or if this is your last message to her for the day, good night text messages will never get old. © Thinkstock Images Women might not always say it, but we all know that for them, it's all about the little things, and sending her one of these cheesy AF good night texts can really help you to score a few brownie points: 1. “It's a shame that humans gotta get some sleep. That's almost 8 hours (improvise as needed) of no notification bell delivering your random cuteness to my phone's screen. Waiting for my new favourite alarm tone until then.” Without being too clingy or sounding too needy, let her know that you enjoy the conversations with her and look forward to more almost all the time. It's a bonus if she enjoys sleeping, because then you also get to pull her legs. © Thinkstock Images 2. “I know you aren't quite used to receiving good night messages from me every night yet, but how do you feel about getting into that habit? We can get started right away. Sweet dreams.” A very subtle way of letting a girl know where you want this situation to head. Whether she is up for it or not, we promise this will bring a smile on her face. And who knows, she might actually take you up on your offer. 3. “I had a pretty busy day today and yet, here I am, planning to call it a night, and ending up here instead - writing a text to the only highlight of such an eventful day.” This one is an absolute winner 'cause it's really smooth and sounds honest too. It is probably the best way to let a girl know that she makes your day better by simply responding to messages and keeping up the conversation. She'll appreciate it. © Thinkstock Images 4. Until the time you feel ready to hear this in person, here's wishing you a good night (insert meaningful emoji) accompanied by a mushy emoji. Why the emoji? So that until it's time, no one else gets the chance to kiss you good night.” A little direct, yet not totally in your face. This one drops multiple hints and comes off as a little too forthcoming, but if the girl happens to be a sport, she will take this in her stride and let things just stay afloat (or maybe she will play along). Who knows? *Winks* 5. “Today feels a little incomplete without the sound of your laughter ringing in my ears. How about we share a joke in my dreams and you can bring this day to a perfect conclusion?” Smitten by her loud, happy laughter? Then there just can't be a better way of complimenting her on it. Trust us when we say that she will go to bed with a huge grin on her face after you send this text. © Thinkstock Images 6. “When I think about it, at the end of the day, there's nothing more I'd like better than to go to sleep, knowing yours is the face I get to wake up to, and annoy the wits out of you for the rest of my life. *Insert devil emoji*” Ah, this one is both sweet and salty. It is almost as if you don't want her to get the satisfaction that you are ready to take the next step, by slightly placing the motivation behind the suggestion, onto the tempting possibility of annoying her just for the sake of it. 7. “Spending the day with you has been a real show stealer! If not for you, I would have never guessed that for this long, I had just been happy with the trailer when it comes to dates. I would love to see how the movie turns out.” You can never fail with an earnest expression and this one is sure to do the trick. Be sure you mean what you say and she will be happy to learn that you enjoyed her company. What's better, she might plan the next date herself. Do let us know how you like these, how many of these you end up trying and, of course, the ones that work for you!
  22. With the fitness and health industry being on an uptrend, everyone is jumping on the wagon of eating healthy or picking healthier options for meals. While the idea of eating healthy is a very good thing, there is something you should know about the companies or marketers selling the so-called healthy foods. They market the hell out of foods that may not even be slightly healthy, or conducive or helpful to your goal of getting in shape. I like to call them 'fake' health foods. Here are some of them that you may be guilty of adding into your shopping cart every time you're at the mall or grocery store: 1) Packaged Fruit Juices © Pixabay These are often marketed as the health food/drink you should be consuming first thing in the morning to start your day. Just NO! If you ever flip the label and see the nutrition content, these so-called health drinks are loaded with sugar making them no different from the regular sodas or colas you may be drinking. And juicing, in general, is not a great way to consume your fruits. It just destroys all the fibre from fruit, which promotes satiety in consuming them. The store-bought ones are anyway not healthy in any sense. 2) Cereal Bars Or Snack Bars © Pixabay This was a tough competitor for the no. 1 spot on this list. Yes, a lot of brands have started selling cereal bars or health bars. They are often even marketed as meal bars or the best breakfast you can get in a small packet. Absolutely not! If you look at the label of it and compare it to a normal chocolate bar, you will see that both are almost the same. These so-called snack bars are just another sugar-loaded food marketed differently to you. Instead, you would be better off eating a chocolate bar, as it will not taste half as bad as these fake health bars. 3) Sugarfree Or Diet Biscuits © Pixabay Another fake one on the radar! The story with these are the same, even though sugar may not be an ingredient on the list, the fat content of these biscuits are twice as those of regular biscuits or cookies. And in the regular biscuits as well, sugar is not present in that high quantities. A surprising (or not) reality is that, by adding this additional fat into them, they are often higher in calories than the regular cookies and they taste terrible and are priced twice the normal cookies. 4) Fruit Yoghurt © Pixabay Oh, how could I? Right? I have nothing against yoghurt. Go for the low-fat, normal fat, full-fat one. Up to you. Yoghurt is actually a very good food to consume and if you pick any plain variety of it, you are actually picking good food there. Then comes the added flavour or the fruit yoghurts. All of a sudden, the yoghurt has lesser protein, more carbs, fats, and added sugar. These macros of the tasty-yet-healthy flag bearing foods are no different than that of an ice-cream. Beware of these so-called healthy foods as they may ruin your diets and never let you get in shape.

  23. Looking at a well-built physique and thinking that the person is knowledgeable about fitness and nutrition is a wrong assumption. It's common for trainers with the biggest muscles to have the most numbers of clients on the floor. In the same way, people tend to listen to that fit Instagram model more than a person who might be 10 times more knowledgeable just because the Insta model is ripped (or Photoshop-ripped) 365 days a year. And this is wrong on so many levels! © YouTube Now, don't get me wrong here. Want to build bigger arms? Find the guy with the biggest arms in the gym and replicate his every trick, right? Nope, wrong! That's because you would be ignoring numerous factors that come into play here. From genetics, to training age, to nutrition, to exogenous assistance, the list here is endless. This is almost foolish to think that the random advice given by that buff dude in the gym is Holy Grail. © Pixabay It is true that dream physiques are the result of years or sometimes even decades of hard work, dedication, patience and consistency in the gym. But many of these so called 'natties' that you see in gyms or on the covers of fitness magazines are actually very, very gifted when it comes to genetics. Also in almost 99% of the cases, they are on steroids. And being enhanced means that no matter which technique they use, they will make progress and keep growing or keep getting shredded, which of course a natural guy like you won't. Confused? Think about it, tomorrow just because a bodybuilder claims that he developed huge arms by doing 1000 reps and eating frog legs, would you start doing the same? Just because a fit looking person says something and (tries to) sound knowledgeable and technical about fitness and nutrition, does not make it true automatically. In other words, someone who looks good does not necessarily have to be an expert in the field of training and nutrition. On the other hand, someone who is not the most ripped or the buffest dude can know a lot more about the art and science of training. Case in point is that of knowledgeable writers/speakers who often get criticized for not being big enough or ripped enough. All a good coach or trainer needs is to know things about fitness that you don't; stuff that was learned in class, through books, through personal experience, or by innovative genius. That person also needs to be passionate about teaching weight training or fitness and has academic qualifications which shows that the person has put in time and effort in learning the art and science of training and nutrition.

  24. It would not be wrong to admit that no matter how much the current President of the Congress party tries to play the leader of the pack, the poor guy constantly seems to fall head first amidst gatherings, where people have especially come to give him a chance to make his point - only to go away with hearty laughs. © AP However, we must give credit to the man for his perseverance, but even that only seems to produce more memes on him. Every time Rahul tries to make a point, he seems to goof-up every step of the way. Whenever he opens his mouth he delivers such rib-ticklers that you can't help but ROFL over it. Here are 10 of his super funny faux pas from the recent times for you to guffaw over: 1. While addressing students in Mumbai's Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies, he said, “one day you're going to run this country, run the institutions, you will be the Steve Jobs in the Microsofts and the leader, the Facebooks of this country.” Steve Job of Microsoft? Right when you thought your GK was poor, this proves that maybe there is hope for you yet. © AP 2. During one of his Lok Sabha addressals, he said, “pehle petrol 130 dollars prati barrel hua karta tha, aur aaj 35 rupay prati barrel hai.” Later he went on to correct himself after someone from his party prompted him with the correct data. Absent minded, much? 3. During a rally in Firozabad he said, "you all are demanding a potato factory in your area, but you should understand I am an opposition leader. I cannot open a potato factory". If you're confused about potatoes can be produced in factories, you might want to know that what he really meant was factory of potato chips. *facepalm* © AP 4. During another rally in 2013 he said, “Ambedkar was the first person to attain escape velocity and run away to US.” Who would have imagined physics and politics could come together like this? Who except Rahul Gandhi could make such an epic observation? 5. In 2015, During a press conference in Kolkata Rahul said, “politics is everywhere. Politics is in your shirt, it's in your pants...it's everywhere.” We do not know the point he was trying to make when he said that, but this was in relation to the fact that youngsters in India are staying away from politics regardless of this fact. © AP 6. In his speech at the CII Annual General Meeting & National Conference 2013 he said, “see, there is a tendency to look at India as a country.” We are not a country yet? What are we then, a continent? 7. During his first address to captains of Indian industry, Rahul used the most absurd analogy ever. He said, “China is referred to as the 'dragon' and India as an 'elephant'. But we are not an elephant, we are a 'beehive'.” Manjhe kay? We really can't make sense of this one. © AP 8. In 2015 Rahul dropped yet another brainfart that would make him the butt of jokes for the longest time. During a rally he tried to make an emotional statement and said, “this morning I woke up at night…” To this date people are not quite sure of what to believe or make of this. 9. Recently while addressing the House in Lok Sabha Rahul said, “maine pradhaan mantri ke baare mein saaf saaf bola hai, aur pradhaan mantri apni aankh meri aankh mein nahi daal sakte.” A slip of tongue or not but this is mighty funny when taken in the literal sense. © AP 10. During another CII addressal he had said, “rani ki Jhansi, she's a hero”. Well, what can we say to that one! Maybe we can but we can't stop laughing. Why does he have to goof up so bad all the time? The guy needs some real help with his expressions for sure.
  25. While some people have the freedom to wear ALMOST anything at work, the vast majority actually works at organisations that have a strict dress code in place. This makes things a bit complicated for those who want to look their fashionable best in office as the options tend to be limited to just formal wear. But wanting to look your stylish and modish best is something you should never compromise on, and as it turns out, there are things you could do that will help you achieve that without having you flout your company's rules. So on that note, here are five ways you can look fashion-forward at your workplace WITHOUT breaking your organisation's dress code: 1) Get Creative With Your Choice Of Formal Shirts © Instagram/Vicky Kaushal A formal shirt is basically the go-to staple for all men who have to comply with a dress code policy at work. So when you can't get away from them, why not embrace them in a creative way? While you have to wear formal shirts to work, there are no restrictions at being a bit creative with your choices. So opting for unique colours, micro ditsy prints and checks and unique patterns, as long as they aren't completely overpowering, is highly advisable. Pro tip: If you wanted to invest in new formal shirts, but happen to be on a budget, then here are some of the best formal shirts for men under Rs 1,499. 2) Go For Unique And Complementary Colour Combinations © Instagram/ Vidyut Jamwal As there are countless ways in which you can team up a formal shirt with a pair of formal trousers, going for unique but complementary colour combinations can never hurt you. So opting for combinations like navy blue and white, beige and sky blue, brown and pink (yes pink!) will surely make you stand out from the clutter of basic whites and blacks. 3) Get The Right Pair Of Formal Shoes © Pexels In many ways, having to wear formal shoes to comply with a dress code can actually be a blessing in disguise. After all, if worn in the right way, formal shoes can help you adorn an incredibly stylish and fashion-forward ensemble. As such investing in brown brogues, black derby shoes and even navy blue oxfords will give you the right footing (pun intended!) to look good. Pro tip: You can never go wrong with brown shoes, so get as many brown shoes as you can and you'll be good to go. 4) Upgrade Your Beard Game © Instagram/ Ranveer Singh Unlike their female counterparts, men have the advantage of investing in their beard and mooch game to look good at their workplace without breaking or flouting the dress code. So get your hands on the best beard oils, the best beard trimmers and the best moustahce waxes out there to upgrade your beard game and become super desirable. 5) Minimalistic Accessorising Can Be A Boon © Instagram/ Ranveer Singh Understandably, you cannot over-accessorise at your workplace without flouting its dress policy. But minimalistic accessorising can actually be a major boon, especially if you're creative enough to do it the right way. So wearing a wrist watch that matches your shoes, a tie that compliments your shirt and trousers, and even the type of glasses you wear to work can make a huge difference in making you appear modish and super desirable.
