ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsIf fashion students are told that for a masterclass in maximalism, they can choose only one person as their reference subject, no one should really have any trouble choosing that person. Ranveer Singh fits the bill effortlessly, but the thing that always keeps him relevant is the unassuming manner in which he carries off everything, like he doesn't even realize that it's 'not ordinary' and 'extra'. It's like he feels at home wearing stuff that other people won't even dare to in their wildest dreams, and that is what sets him apart. One important thing about his wild ensembles is that they teach us inclusivity. Right from wearing skirts and Angrakhas to his wedding to wearing ensembles that outright looked like 'Ghagras', this man has always been so secure about his masculinity, that he never paid heed to naysayers on what 'men should not wear'. The latest instance had him wear a pair of boots with high heels to an award show, and owning the look like a boss. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Who won't want to look as graceful on a red carpet? Plus, heels, of course, makes one look taller than they are. Only if every man was as easygoing as Ranveer to actually try it out and reap the benefits. © Instagram/Asiavisionawards © Viral Bhayani Coming to his outfit, we love the turquoise snakeskin patterned suit by Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna. Plus, it fits him like a second skin! © Viral Bhayani © Instagram/Asiavisionawards All we can say is, Ranveer Singh legit is the fashion icon everyone should learn a thing or two from, even if they aren't on board with everything he wears.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsWe think it is safe to say that Indian medium-fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah had left a mark on the Australian cricketing fans after his historic performance in the 4-game Border-Gavaskar Test series. It is a well know fact that Bumrah has a rather unorthodox bowling action, which clearly seemed to have worked in his favour and also for his team as they won the series 2-1. What nobody, not even Bumrah could have expected was exactly how much was his style loved by his Aussie fans. On Wednesday, an Australian man by the name of Michael Curtin, who clearly loves a good game of bat and ball, uploaded a video of his son trying to mimic Bumrah's bowling action in his backyard. @bhogleharsha @Jaspritbumrah93 The only problem from your great series win may be the next generation of Aussie cricketers you have inspired! ððªðpic.twitter.com/dmZNClOcBx — Michael Curtin (@c_u_r_t_o) January 9, 2019 The video went viral as soon as it touched Twitter as fans from all over the world appreciated the youngster's enthusiasm. When Bumrah, who was tagged in the video, saw it, he couldn't help but reply to the extremely entertaining tweet. The kid is so cute . Give him my best wishes ð. — Jasprit bumrah (@Jaspritbumrah93) January 9, 2019 This video is probably the best example of how cricket has brought the world a lot more closer than it used to be. While a decade ago, Indians grew up trying to imitate Brett Lee and Shane Warne, now, the Indians players have the same level of love and respect in the eyes of cricket followers worldwide. The bowler has been given a well-deserved break during the ODI series between India and Australia starting tomorrow. For now, Bumrah could maybe give some coaching classes to the kid.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsCricket needs no introduction in India. The country's obsession with the sport can be ascertained from the fact that cricket is often labelled as a religion in this part of the world. Thus, it's quite understandable to see the likes of Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni enjoying unmatched spotlight. But, while the cricketers continue to enjoy their demigod status, one woman has managed to carve her own niche in the country's beloved sport. Mayanti Langer has established herself as one of the most recognised faces in a sport that is dominated by men. With her unique insights and exceptional analysis on the game, the 33-year-old has managed to create her own fan-following. For someone who aspired to be a graphic designer, Mayanti has surely come a long way to dominate the gentleman's game with her TV shows. But, despite her skills in front of the camera and great understanding of the game, she is still not immune to sexism - something that continues to infest various sports. Constantly criticised for her looks and attire, Mayanti has often been subject to trolls on social media. © Instagram/@mayantilangerofficial In fact, she recently revealed how she dealt with body shaming and sexism that has been a persistent problem in her glamorous field. Speaking her mind on an episode of Miss Field, she said: "I don't think it [body shamming] was that significant till last year's ICC Champions Trophy. So, I got trolled badly for my lungi skirt. It was hilarious because I myself was laughing at the memes. Yes, I became a meme". Talking to the show's anchor Shibani Dandekar, she also spoke about an article that was aimed at her wardrobe. "There was an article written about me, about wearing 5-inches heels and wearing skirts and wearing sleeveless and wearing this and why can't I wear Indian clothes and why can't I wear pants and suits and I'm like, what's your problem if I want to wear 5-inches heels? Because I'm comfortable in them," she said. "No one has forced me to wear them and that is my choice. And I just felt that – this is the biggest problem! I was like the guys are just going to comment on the length of the skirt because they have nothing better to do. The woman is analysing 'why is she wearing 5-inch, isn't this more practical?',” Mayanti added. So, how do you tackle such annoying situations? Well, Mayanti tackled fire with fire. “So this IPL, I did everything, we wore pants, we wore suits, we wore blazers, we wore mini-skirts, we wore dresses, we wore every single thing and it didn't make a difference," she claimed. © Instagram/@mayantilangerofficial Apart from being policed over her body and outfits, Mayanti has also faced criticism and continues to get trolled heavily every time her husband Stuart Binny fails to perform on the cricket field. From being labelled as 'too good' for Binny to attracting heinous tags including 'gold digger', Mayanti has undoubtedly faced it all. But, while her cricketing skills might not be up to the mark, this woman is still more than capable of hitting the trolls for a six with her 'devil may care' attitude.
