  1. One cannot imagine or fathom anybody other than the mighty Robert Downey Jr. playing the crazy Tony Stark aka Iron Man. Gadgets, gizmos, technologically advanced and making a reality out of dreams is what defines Tony for us in the movie. Turns out, Robert is no different in real life as well. One look inside his crazy 19th century windmill home (yes, the dude did it) and you're convinced why he was meant to be the super cool Iron Man. The simple abode yet futuristic-in-nature house is unlike any celebrity home videos we have watched. The couple have their office on top of the windmill, the house has artefacts which are personal in nature and represent the family itself. © AD The interiors are posh and classic white in colour, including the gorgeous drawing room and the insanely wonderful bedroom. © AD © AD Once we were done watching the house tour, we were also convinced that maybe this was Tony Stark just acting like Robert Downey Jr maybe?

  3. Quite a few sparks flew when an infamous Yogi used the phrase “green virus” for a section of our community. Instead of seeking to draw strength from the diversity our country shares, we are now caught up in a strange kind of murky politics in India. However, Japan does have some good news to share because another 'Yogi' in the country is showing us how to win people's heart and become their representative in the truest sense. A 41-year-old Indian-origin Japanese man has just become the first Indian to win an election in the country. © Twitter Named Puranik Yogendra, he goes by the nickname 'Yogi' and has been elected to Tokyo's Edogawa Ward assembly after securing the fifth highest vote count in the 21st April polls. Edogawa Ward houses the highest number of Indians in Tokyo, which is almost 10 percent of Japan's total Indian occupancy, which is over 34,000! Apart from Indians, Edogawa Ward is also home to a large number of Chinese and Koreans. © Twitter What makes Yogi, a Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan member, so special is his mission, “I want to be a bridge between Japanese and foreigners," Yogi told the media. Yogendra first visited Japan in 1997 as a university student in India. Two years later he was back in the country to study, and finally in 2001 Yogi arrived in Japan to work as an engineer. Reportedly, he has been living in Edogawa Ward since 2005. © Twitter After receiving Japanese citizenship, Yogi began pursuing a career in politics. "I want to be an assemblyman who can connect everyone regardless of nationality, age, or even disabilities, through my 20 years of living in Japan," Yogi said. We hope Yogis at home take some inspiration from this man.
  4. 1. Exfoliation Is Key © Getty Images © Getty Images There are exclusive face scrubs in the market for men in any departmental store or even online. Form a habit of using the scrub right before you shave every time. Dab some on your fingers and gently work it on your face. This not only helps with making the shave smooth and removes tan as well. 2. Witch Hazel As A Toner © Getty Images Witch hazel as a toner comforts the skin after a close shave and prevents nicks. You'll be surprised by realizing how the number of nicks you usually get begin going down once you start using this. 3. Moisturizing Is Key © Getty Images Sometimes, your daily moisturizer can be your best aftershave if you don't want to spend extra money on an aftershave. Dab it on your fingers and work it gently with your fingertips and see the difference. 4. The Cold Water Hack © Getty Images Here's a secret: post-shave, never wash your face with the same hot/lukewarm water you used while taking a shower. Instead, wash your face with cold water as it will close your pores and immediately tighten your facial skin. This means fewer wrinkles so you don't have to worry about ageing. 5. Keep The Strokes Short © Getty Images One hack that you might be aware of already is that you should always keep your strokes short. Instead of going for long-drawn-out strokes, go for short sharp strokes for a clean cut. 6. Substitute Baby Oil For Shaving Cream © Getty Images If you've run out of both shaving cream and hair conditioner, do it in the shower while using lukewarm water. That will open up your pores, soften the tough bristles of your whiskers and give a close shave. 7. For Nicks And Cuts Use Fitkaris © Getty Images Fitkari is extremely handy for nicks and cuts, better than using a tissue paper! You can even use a pinch of lip balm. Just dab some on the cut and you're good to go. 8. Wear The Shaving Cream For At Least Five Minutes © Getty Images A good hack to avoid razor burns is to let the shaving cream sit for at least five minutes. This prevents the red spots from coming back. It works better if you use a quality shaving cream as opposed to foam.
  5. People say "Behind every successful man, there's a woman" and Shah Rukh Khan's latest post only reiterates the same. It's World Theatre Day today, and in case you didn't know, the King of Bollywood began his career with theatre. View this post on Instagram Glad to get my hands on the latest iPhone! Thank you @apple ... really enjoying the amazing Portrait Lighting. #shotoniPhoneXSMax A post shared by Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) on Sep 27, 2018 at 7:15am PDT But, instead of just talking about his journey in theatre, he took this opportunity to thank his wife Gauri. He wrote, "Being with you is like being on Stage. There's so much light, I can't see anything else. Curiosity to know New, Humility to accept u will never know if fully...makes u an actor. #WorldTheaterDay." “Being with you is like being on Stage. There's so much light, I can't see anything else”. Curiosity to know New, Humility to accept u will never know if fully...makes u an actor. #WorldTheaterDay pic.twitter.com/7mWCCuHmBz — Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) March 27, 2019 He might have won thousands of awards in his career, but he took home the Best Husband Award with this single post. On the work front, Shah Rukh Khan was last seen in 'Zero', which failed to impress people but we are sure his fans are waiting for him to come back with a bang and blow minds away with his next project.
  6. Virat Kohli and the rest of the Indian cricket team are in currently in Ranchi, Jharkhand for the third of five-match ODI series. This game is particularly important because of the fact that Team India is currently leading the series 2-0 and winning the next one, would ensure the series victory against their Aussie rivals. Clearly, the stakes are high and there is a load of pressure on the shoulders of Team India to be done with the series as soon as possible. During such times of goading, it was but obvious that former captain MS Dhoni will do something to calm their nerves, as he does during the crucial final overs of a match. Ranchi is Dhoni's hometown. This is where 'Captain Cool' grew up amongst his friends and family, where he went to school and where he developed his unorthodox ways of dominating the game of cricket. People have come to worship him and his contributions towards putting the town on a global map. If we were living in ancient times, Dhoni would definitely be living as the city's most beloved king. It is therefore only suitable that his comrades enjoy a royal feast. While the humility in Dhoni led him to drive his chariot (read: Hummer H2) to the airport to pick up teammates Rishabh Pant and Kedar Jadhav himself, he also arranged for a massive dinner party for the entire roster at his Ranchi residence. Dinner at Thala's home#Dhoni #MSDhoni #CSK #Tamil #Tamilnadu #Chennai @ChennaiIPL . Follow @dhonicsk_7 pic.twitter.com/HDBRkyPMVI — Chennai Super kings (@dhonicsk_7) March 7, 2019 In what looks and feels nothing short of a movie set for a regal dinner scene from the 'Lord of the Rings' or at Hogwarts, Dhoni's supper consisted of chandeliers, large candles, huge curtains and a beautiful starry night. Every member of the Indian roster seems to have forgotten about the pressure of winning the next game, even if it was for a brief second, and it was a great moment indeed for the teammates to have shared together. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Virat Kohli (@virat.kohli) on Mar 6, 2019 at 10:15pm PST “Great night with the boys at mahi bhais place last night. Good food, fun chats all around and great energy. Perfect team evening,” Virat Kohli captioned this image on an Instagram post. View this post on Instagram Angheeti ke paas baithne ka maza kuch aur hi hota hai!! #squadgoals #angeethi #friends #evenings #warmth A post shared by Shikhar Dhawan (@shikhardofficial) on Mar 6, 2019 at 8:50am PST Shikhar Dhawan, Kedar Jadhav and Kuldeep Yadav were also seen enjoying the warmth of a small 'Angeethi' (a bonfire) next to the huge garden.
  7. On Thursday, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan announced that his government will release captured Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot, Abhinandan Varthaman today as a 'gesture of peace'. Since then, the nation's happiness and excitement knew no bounds as people from across the country geared up, like one big family, to welcome their hero. © Facebook Reportedly, the convoy of vehicles carrying Varthaman reached the Attari Wagah Border late afternoon, from where he was handed over to India moments ago as he crossed the LoC. Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was kept in the custody of the Pakistan Army since Wednesday, after his aircraft crashed on the other side of the LoC, during aerial combat between Indian and Pakistani fighter planes. © Twitter When the news of Varthaman's captivity made headlines, the nation had only one prayer on their lips, 'Bring Back Abhinandan'. Furthermore, the hashtags #SayNoToWar and the happiness in both the countries over the release of Varthaman, prove that both people across the border stand united for peace and against war. Pakistan: Visuals from Wagah in Lahore; IAF Wing Commander #AbhinandanVarthaman will soon be handed over to the Indian Air Force at Attari-Wagah border pic.twitter.com/xEPghVgNzi — ANI (@ANI) March 1, 2019 In fact, earlier today, in a truly heartwarming gesture, Varthaman's parents were given a standing ovation by the passengers as they deboarded the flight in Delhi. While expressing his gratitude to Varthaman, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said every Indian is proud of him. Now that the nation's hero is back, people can't stop rejoicing and the insane crowd at Wagah Border cheering for him and his return reiterates the same.

  8. Imagine you're on a date and everything's going well, by the end of it, you drop your date home. You lean in expecting a kiss but as you start to extend yourself in a half-hug, to your surprise they shrug away quickly with a pinched expression. You wonder what went wrong, and hope for a text later. But you never get that text. What went wrong? One of the possible reasons could be body odour. The thing is, a perfume or a deo can only protect you for so long. You need an organic and more permanent fix. Home made remedies fall in this category. Here are some of the home remedies that you could try: 1. Lavender Oil © Shutterstock Lavender stops the growth of the odor-causing bacteria. And the essence emanates a soft fragrance. Cornstarch and baking soda keep the skin dry, thereby preventing any accumulation of bacteria. You will need 10 drops of lavender essential oil along with 3 teaspoons of cornstarch and 2 teaspoons of baking soda. Mix the lavender oil with the cornstarch and baking soda and store the mixture in a dark place for a couple of days. Try applying this daily in order to see a prominent difference. 2. Apple Cider Vinegar © Shutterstock Apple cider vinegar has acidic properties that kill and prevent any kind of bacterial formation, which in turn, prevents foul body odour. Take some apple cider vinegar and directly apply to your underarms and other body parts using a cotton ball. Alternatively, in half a cup of ACV mix a cup of water and then use a deodorant. 3. Tea Bags © Shutterstock Tea bags have tannins present in the tea that keep the skin dry and prevent any sweat formation. Just bring the water to a boil and add the tea bags. Pour this tea into your regular bath and soak in it for 15-20 minutes. Repeat at least thrice a week to see effective results. 4. Lemon Drops © Shutterstock Lemon drops have ingrained acidic levels that lower the pH of our body, making it difficult for the bacteria to survive on our skin. Just cut the lemon into two halves and rub it directly on your underarms. Allow it to dry completely. Wash it off with lukewarm water. If you have sensitive skin, you can dilute lemon juice with a few drops of water and then apply it on the underarms. 5. Rose Water © Shutterstock Rose water is an astringent which reduces the size of the pores present on the skin, and this decreases sweat production. It additionally leaves behind a floral fragrance. Just mix rose water with apple cider vinegar. Store this mixture in a bottle and spray on your underarms and other body parts whenever required.
  9. Last November, the Indian cricket team embarked on a long journey away from home that included gruelling tours of Australia and New Zealand. During that time, India drew the Twenty20 International (T20I) series before winning the Tests and One-Day Internationals (ODIs) against Australia. And then, they travelled to New Zealand where they demolished the hosts in ODIs before stuttering in the T20Is. While their overseas tour has come to an end, India, now, await their next challenge which, once again, involves the Australian brigade. With revenge on their mind, the Aussie team will travel to India for two T20Is and five ODIs, slated to begin from 24th February. But, after spending three months on the road, the Indian cricketers finally had a breather as the T20I series against Australia is still more than a week away. Several Indian cricketers were seen making the most of their time at home after they shared pictures and videos on the social media. From Rohit Sharma to Virat Kohli, here's how Indian cricketers are unwinding following their long overseas tour: Rohit Sharma How happily he is playing with his daughterâ¤ð­! Rohit Sharma and his daughter Samairað!@ImRo45 @ritssajdeh pic.twitter.com/wpyDBDwvv9 — Niyati (@niyati_45) February 12, 2019 The Indian opener didn't really have a great time as stand-in captain in the T20Is against New Zealand, losing the series 2-1. But, the 'Hitman' did find a reason to cheer for as he became the leading run-getter in the shortest format following a brilliant fifty in the second T20I in Auckland. Upon his return to India, Rohit was elated to spend time with his daughter 'Samaira'. A video of Rohit playing with his daughter was also shared on the social media. Kuldeep Yadav After a long and gruelling tour, time to head back home with loads of happy memories to cherishð®ð³ðð»âð» pic.twitter.com/tvMUL1hZfO — Kuldeep yadav (@imkuldeep18) February 11, 2019 One of India's premier spinners, Kuldeep had a decent outing in both, Australia and New Zealand. Thanks to his exploits, the wrist-spinner recently notched up a career-best second position in the ICC's T20I rankings for bowlers. Clearly, the young spinner was happy to be home as he shared a photograph of himself in the company of his Team India mates Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant and Yuzvendra Chahal. Shikhar Dhawan It is time to knuckle up! #knuckleup #workout #hardwork #life #tuesdaythoughts #keepgoingðª pic.twitter.com/CSeSbaur3L — Shikhar Dhawan (@SDhawan25) February 12, 2019 The marauding Indian opener had a mixed outing in Australia and New Zealand. While he did get a lot of starts, Dhawan just couldn't capitalise and convert them into big individual scores. With the Aussies coming to India this month, Dhawan will be eager to make his presence felt in a bid to win over the fans. And, that's exactly what might have been on his mind when he shared a brief video where the left-hander can be seen doing push-up on his knuckles. Virat Kohli Instagram After helping his side in gaining an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match ODI series, Kohli was rested from the last two 50-over contests and the three T20Is against New Zealand. While his team stuttered to a narrow 2-1 loss in the T20Is, Kohli was seen exploring the scenic beauty of New Zealand with wife Anushka Sharma. Early on Tuesday, the couple returned home and as soon as they landed at the Mumbai airport, the Indian captain shared a selfie of their arrival with the cricket fans on the social media. Dinesh Karthik Instagram The Indian middle-order batsman was recently slammed for his antics during India's four-run loss against New Zealand in the deciding T20I. His decision to deny Krunal Pandya a crucial single in the final over didn't go down well with the fans. Karthik did manage to hit a six off the last ball, but it wasn't good enough to take India home. But, that is now a thing of the past. The T20I series is done and dusted. And, Karthik is just happy to be back home and dig in to south Indian delicacies. MS Dhoni .@msdhoni back in bay after New Zealand & Australia tour!ð®ð³ð@seemantlohani @mihir_diwakar #Dhoni #MSDhoni #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/vOiDlbdMrP — MS Dhoni Fans Official (@msdfansofficial) February 12, 2019 For someone who desperately needed to prove his mettle, MS Dhoni made the most of time during India's tour of Australia and New Zealand. The former Indian captain shut his critics with his 'Player of the Series' performance in the ODIs against Australia and then continued to play a crucial role in the middle-order against the Kiwis. On the back of some sublime performances, Dhoni has not only won over fans, but has also impressed the selectors who'll surely take note of his exploits before announcing the Indian squad for the ICC World Cup in England and Wales. But, for now, Dhoni seemed really happy to return home.
  10. One annoying problem that almost every guy in India faces, and doesn't know how to deal with, is that of 'dark armpits'. The climate in India is so tricky, that along with the pollution and temperature fluctuation, it gives rise to dark, unattractive underarms - irrespective of your overall complexion (not that colour/shade is important, it's just the conspicuous unevenness that's the issue).The result? Even if you're jacked, you're hesitant to wear sleeveless vests and racer-backs - even in the gym! Now, that's not fair. But worry not, for we have the perfect home remedies that will get rid of your dark armpits and lighten them up in less than 2 weeks. 1. Use coconut and almond oil © Getty Images One of the most important reasons why people get dark underarms is because they don't moisturize the area. Yes, the general consensus is that it's already hot, and that area is already damp with sweat, so there is no need to moisturize it. It's a huge misconception, and that also gives rise to less blood flow in that area, thereby causing dark, undernourished skin. Start massaging the area with coconut and almond oils at least once a day (preferably right after a shower), to see visible differences in the skin colour within 2 weeks. 2. Exfoliate with sugar © Getty Images More often than not, dry skin accumulated in your armpits result in the patchy, dark skin spots. You need to exfoliate your underarms to get rid of it and get an even complexion. The best way is to use sugar. Take some white/brown sugar, and mix it with a little bit of olive oil. Use the paste to exfoliate your underarms for a couple of minutes, and leave it on for about 5 minutes or so. Wash it off with water. 3. Use a lightening agent like lemon © Getty Images Lemon/lemon juice is a natural skin lightening agent. Cut a lemon in half, and use rub it against your underarm skin for a white. Leave it on for a bit, and wash it off with water. Try them for 2 weeks, and get rid of your dark underarms. You're welcome!
  11. Acne is a common foe for men and women alike. It often comes in the way of your appearance, especially on the most important occasions. Acne in men is a common battle to fight since puberty days and can make their confidence levels hit the roof or the floor. Often acne does affect your professional and personal life. While visiting dermatologists and salons would cost you a hefty amount of money, home remedies can save you more than a few bucks. Try out these 5 home remedies regularly and swear by them to get smooth, acne-free skin. 1. Orange peel © brambleberry Orange peel is rich in vitamin C and helps with inflammation or pimples. They can be applied directly onto the skin or you can prepare an easy face mask. To make one, get some orange peel shards and grind them. Add water to the mix and make a fine paste. Keep the mask on for 15 mins and wash it out. Zesty fresh skin is the way to go! 2. Ice © rover If you have a particularly painful little popper, applying ice would be helpful. Ice helps in improving blood circulation to skin. When a pimple appears, your pores get clogged with dirt. Applying ice to the affected area will help freeze the pores and removing dirt.

This will do wonders for your skin regime. 4. Aloe Vera © stylecraze Aloe-vera contains properties that relieve burns along with healing and even reduce scarring. To use it as a skin remedy, chop up a portion of the aloe plant depending upon how much you want to use, scoop some gel out and apply it directly to the acne-prone skin. You can also purchase some pre-made aloe gel but make sure it's completely natural and organic otherwise it won't work. 5. Mint © draxe When acne appears, the pores usually carry excessive oil causing breakout. Mint has properties that help remove oil that clogs your pores. It can be helpful in preventing acne and treating it as well. To use mint as a remedy, mix about 2 tablespoons of finely chopped fresh mint with powdered oatmeal and blend it. Apply it to your face for 10 minutes then rinse off with cold water. Your skin is now minty fresh, too! All you need to do to say adios to acne is follow these home remedies religiously and make a them a part of your regular skincare routine. You will surely notice results over a certain period of time. Time to go organic, guys!
  12. This father has become quite popular on social media in the last week. If you haven't already seen, this father danced to the 'Frozen' soundtrack with his son in a gown and see how adorable they look. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ørjan Burøe (@orjanburoe) on Jan 20, 2019 at 3:19am PST A man who is comfortable with his masculinity even while wearing a gown is a man we adore and respect because this man wouldn't let society dictate how he should father his son. However, some people have negative reactions to it as well. For example, Piers Morgan would refuse to give him the tag 'Best Dad Ever' and why should a dad only be called great if he dances to Frozen, good point. However, you have to see the father's comeback to that. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ørjan Burøe (@orjanburoe) on Jan 24, 2019 at 9:18am PST This proves that he in fact is a great dad who doesn't believe in toxic gender norms. This is indeed something that we should all learn from him.
  13. Under-eye dark circles are the worst. They're starkly visible and they make you look exhausted all the time. This is not something you want if you're planning a first date or a meeting with your boss. via GIPHY The last thing you want is for the other person to think that you're sleepy and you didn't prepare for the meeting, or you're prioritizing different things in life. So here are quick remedies to get rid of dark circles. 1. Rose Water © skincare4use Dip a ball of cotton in some rose water and slowly dab it across your under eye affected region. Repeat the process three times with the break of ten minutes in the middle. This quickly rejuvenates your skin and recuperates the lost moisture. It also calms the skin and reduces the visible darkness. 2. Tomato Juice © artofmanliness Tomato is a great bleaching agent.

Cucumber Slices © shutterstock Remember how in movies, when someone is getting a facial, the other person tends to eat the cucumber slice that is placed on your eyes? Well, don't. The cucumber has soothing properties that calm the skin and rids it of dark eye circles.

  15. If we go down the whole inclusive narrative (which is the correct thing to do tbh), all smiles are beautiful. However, anyone who denies that they have not desired pearl-white teeth at some point or the other in their life, they're simply lying. White teeth are attractive not only because of their aesthetic appeal, they are also an indicator of good dental hygiene, which is in fact a desirable thing. Keeping that in mind, we have listed out 5 super effective home remedies that will help one get visibly whiter teeth in less than a month's time. 1. Oil Pulling © Shine365 Oil pulling is done by taking a teaspoonful of oil in your mouth, swishing it around for 15-20 minutes, and then spitting it out. It's an ancient technique that detoxifies your body, starting with the mouth. 2. Drinking less tea/coffee and quitting smoking © Yournewswire Quitting smoking will considerably decrease nicotine staining. Excessive consumption of coffee, tea, and strong dark sodas also stain your teeth, the effects of which can be long term. Everyone should make a conscious attempt to avoid these food items. 3. Brushing with baking soda © Orawellness Baking soda has natural whitening properties, and is a natural abrasive. Plus, it helps in creating an alkaline environment in your mouth, thereby restricting bacterial growth. All of these result in whiter teeth. 4. Eating fruits like apple, papaya, and pineapple © Health and Mind Care Enzymes found in these fruits will naturally help whiten your teeth, on regular consumption. 5. Brushing and flossing © Markham Dental Centre This one seems basic, but it's the most important step. Teeth staining happen mainly because of food stuck in your mouth for a long time. Brush properly (with vertical movement for your front teeth in a way that cleans the crevices) twice and day, and never go to bed without brushing post dinner. Flossing once a day will make sure food is not stuck in between your teeth, and will also take care of excess plaque.
  16. We all, as adults, at some point, move out of our parents' house. People who are living alone will understand how stressful it gets when your parents announce their annual and sometimes sudden visit. From fake office trips to a friend's wedding to what not, people have often come up with interesting excuses to stop their parents from coming home. But, what is the wildest thing you've done to stop them? Whatever it is, it cannot top this 23-year-old guy from France who made a hoax bomb threat, just because he didn't want his parents to come home. Pexels This student's parents were coming to see him, in a flight from Lyon to Rennes in France. Reportedly, he anonymously made a hoax call regarding the bomb, which caused the flight to turn around shortly after the take-off. His parents boarded the EasyJet flight, EZY4319 on January 18. Wikimedia The public prosecutor of Rennes said in a statement, "the author of the facts has been identified." The dude has been held in custody and charged with "false news compromising the safety of an aircraft in flight." If the guy is prosecuted, he could end up facing up to five years in jail and might get slapped with a fine of 75,000 euro (Rs. 60 lakh approx.) Pexels Seriously, what was he hiding in his house or what could have possibly happened between him and his parents that he took this extreme step to stop them?
  17. Ironing your own clothes is one of those tasks that will strike you as a Herculean task once you move out of your parents' place. Unless, you've always been trained to iron your clothes, figuring your way out can be a hassle. via GIPHY While a viable option is giving your clothes to laundry, if you want to save some money and be self-reliant, you could learn ironing your clothes. Trust us, it'll make your mother proud. via GIPHY After all, ironing your own clothes is a pretty impressive skill to have. A list of thing you need before you start ironing your clothes: 1. An iron 2. Distilled Water 3. Ironing Board (If you don't have a board, spreading out two bedsheets one over the other on the floor works just as well) For a pair of jeans, we would recommend ideally not ironing them or if needed, just giving a little ironing (only if there are too many creases). Ironing the jeans makes it look shiny and crisp and ruins the shape of it. For a pair of trousers: 1. Check the kind of fabric of the pants that you're dealing with and set the temperature of the iron to the corresponding temperature. © art of manliness 2. Iron the lining of the pocket If the lining of the pockets are too creased, you iron them. Some people tend to forget this important part. If you don't iron the lining, it might be visible through your trouser and it looks like an unlikely bulge. PSA: if pants fit you weirdly, you should look at this. © art of manliness 3. Start ironing from the waistband Iron the waistband to perfection. Then iron the upper thigh region carefully keeping in mind the pleats of the pants. After that make a middle crease for these pants and iron them from top to bottom. Repeat the step on the other leg. The crease in the middle is super important to take your leg off at the knee. © art of manliness

  20. Every man who is a part of the armed forces and serves the country has a story behind his journey. The story depends on his walk of life and how he perceives it, to fulfil his duties. Compassion is an ardent part of any army-man's life, without which protecting one's nation is absolutely redundant. An altogether heroic and compassionate stance was also taken by Major Shashidharan Nair before he breathed his last at the LoC last week and we're as gutted as we're proud about his story, to keep up all his responsibilities well intact. (c)Times Of India Major Nair was a native of Khadakwasala and studied from Fergusson college in Pune. He was a kind and compassionate soul, full of love and armoured responsibility and he did his best to fulfil the ones he wore proudly on his shoulder. One of them was obviously love and he met the love of his life, Trupti in Pune through some mutual friends. Their friendship nurtured into love and they soon got married to fulfil their dreams together. Trupti was a working woman with a masters in computer application and Nair boasted of being a 'captain' and they started living their life like they had planned to. But it wasn't easy for them. It never really is, is it? (c)Twitter Just a few months into them being engaged, Trupti was diagnosed with multiple arteriosclerosis. Arteriosclerosis is the hardening and narrowing of arteries which can lead to heart conditions and strokes and that's exactly what happened with Trupti. Everyone around Nair was against him getting married to someone suffering from a disease like that, but love made Nair stick to his guns and he finally married Trupti in 2012. But their happy married bliss was short-lived, when a few months into their marriage, Trupti suffered a stroke, which paralysed her lower body completely. (c)Twitter But that never deterred their spirit to love each other unconditionally and stand by each other through thick and thin. especially for Nair, who was a constant pillar to her weaknesses--both physical and emotional at the time. Their love story stands out as a well known romance in the army and everyone remembers their love and the fondness they had for each other, very well. They would often attend parties together, with Major Nair wheeling Trupti or carrying her in his arms, throughout, with valour. (c)Twitter Unfortunately, like I said it wasn't easy for them and their love was short-lived. Before joining back on duty on January 2nd, Major Nair took leave to spend a month with his wife. He went back to the LoC where he was posted in Nowshera, Jammu & Kashmir. Trupti being a concerned wife was a little sceptical about his posting there, but he like any ardent and caring husband promised to be back home soon. And he did live up to his promise. But not like how we'd expect him to. (c)Twitter Turns out, the promise he made to his motherland overpowered the one he made to his wife when he laid down his life for the nation, while on patrol on the LoC. He was the victim of coming in between an IED (improvised explosive device) laid down by terrorists there, and he breathed his last, at that very moment, with another Indian army soldier. (c)Twitter His body arrived at the National War Memorial in Pune, wrapped in the tricolour and Trupti sat there, quietly, bidding her pillar of strength a final goodbye. (c)Twitter His demise broke many hearts. His family and friends were left devastated but that's the thing about the men in the forces. Somewhere deep down you have to know that one day they may never come back and finally make peace with that fact. I believe Trupti did the same. Although, she counted on him to return and be with her and share a happy life but somewhere inside her heart she knew he may never return and she would have to carry on with life without him. That's the power of love. Withstanding every challenge that may come your way and step up and be invincible together, for as long as two people can and we definitely found that invincibility in Major Nair and Trupti.
  21. The Winter season can be terribly harsh for your skin. You need a skin care routine in place to tackle issues like dry skin, an itchy scalp and patchy and dry elbows.

  22. Super-Dad Rohit Sharma was on a flight back home as soon as the news of his wife Ritika Sajdeh being blessed with a baby daughter reached his ears. The news broke out within hours of Team India registering the second win of the four-match series in Melbourne on Sunday. The batsman seemed overjoyed about becoming a father in an interview with retired Australian cricketer, Michael Clarke, before the 3rd Test. "I cannot wait to be a father; it is going to be a game-changing moment in our lives,” Sharma told Clarke. “I am eagerly awaiting the moment of becoming a father. It will be a moment to change our life.” https://t.co/EsLEjyDuI0 We are so happy for you guys @ImRo45 @ritssajdeh â¤ï¸ — Rohit Sharma FanClub (@ImRo45_FC) December 20, 2018 Sharma played a crucial role in the first innings of the 3rd Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground as he scored 63 runs off 114 balls and remained unbeaten till the end. The Men in Blue look to seal their series victory by winning the 4th Test starting 3rd January 2019, however, looks like they will not have the talents of the middle-order batsman to back them up in Sydney. The team is looking at Hardik Pandya, who recently recovered from a severe lower-back injury he suffered in September this year, as a suitable replacement for Sharma. “It would've been great to have him (Rohit) around,” a source told The Times of India. “Tactically, he brings so much to the side and then his batting provides the right kind of balance to the side. But what awaits him is far bigger and more important.” Rohit Sharma will be back in Australia after spending a week with the family to join the ODI squad for a three-match series starting 12th January 2019.
  23. Before I start, let me ask you this- what does a flat tummy mean? Every day we get hundreds of people asking us to do an article on 'how to get a flat tummy'. Not only is this a very insensible question, but it also puts us coaches at a loss of words, sometimes. Do you want abs? Some say "no, I just want a flat tummy". The thing is that if you diet well and exercise, you will somewhat start seeing your abs. By a flat tummy, most mean that they don't want a pot belly. And yes, the numbers of articles I have read on getting a flat tummy are hilarious. 'Drink aloe vera juice, do yoga, get a detox shake' and what not. The reality is that none of these will get you a flat tummy. But doing these things will – 1) Count The Calories You Eat One thing that every MXP Health coach stresses upon is calories counting. Calories in versus calories out will lay down the fundamentals of your fat gain or fat loss. Aim to operate in a deficit of your maintenance calories. How to start? Read this. 2) Start Walking More Movement is the second cornerstone in a fat loss journey after calorie counting. Walk as much as you can. Do as many house chores as you possibly can or just simply walk your dog. This movement burns way more calories that you can burn in an hour-long gym session. This is called NEAT- Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis. © Pixabay 3) STOP Putting A Spoon Full Of Desi Ghee On Whatever You Eat Now please, I am not saying that desi ghee makes people fat. It doesn't, but eating WAY TOO much of it can. Desi ghee is a staple in Indian households and its consumption goes completely unmonitored. Using is by the table is extremely common. The problem is that fat is the most calorie dense macronutrient, with 9 calories per gram. Now if you eat near about 50 grams of desi ghee, you are consuming 450 calories from ghee alone. So, just watch it! 4) Exercising NO, doing crunches or sit-ups will not get you a flat tummy but will only make your core muscles stronger. You will still need to lower your caloric intake and lose fat. But the benefits of exercising go well beyond just fat loss. Start with these at home exercises. © Pixabay When These 4 Things Are Done Together By counting your calories you will know how much to eat in order to operate in a deficit. By moving more, you will burn more calories than you consume. By watching your ghee intake you will automatically lower your calorie intake. By exercising regularly, you will get stronger and your muscles will get defined. Hence, weight loss which will eventually lead to a flat tummy over a period of time.
  24. Gymnasts are the poster children for promoting bodyweight training. With their defined torsos, massive shoulders and arms and predominantly equipment free workouts, lend us to believe that our bodies are all that we need for us to build muscle. There are proponents on either side of the fence but I truly believe that bodyweight training is incredibly effective as it increases our sense of balance and reduces the possibility of injury through over lifting. Bodyweight exercises also provide a graceful range of motion and spatial co-ordination. Nope, Can't Really Become A Bodybuilder With Bodyweight Training! Before we assess the situation at hand, we need to set the record straight. If you aim to get bigger and pack on slabs of muscle, bodyweight training will not cut the cake for you. You are better under a bar and with the dumbbells. Now Let's Look Into The Benefits Of Bodyweight Training © Pixabay Bodyweight exercises are often associated with functional training and endurance building exercises but those same exercises when done with the application of full body tension and bodyweight progressions can be exceedingly effective in building strength and muscle. 1) Bodyweight exercises through compound body movements augment cognitive strength and improve psycho-neural functioning as well as neural-muscular coordination. It also assists in de-carbonating the blood and recharging it with oxygen. Most important is the recreational value of bodyweight workouts as they are more fun, creative and engaging. 2) Progressing to different difficult variations of exercises will help build muscle more rapidly as opposed to doing multiple reps of the same exercise. 3) For someone who is new to exercising, it would be a lot easier to build muscle with bodyweight exercises as opposed to someone who has been exercising for a while unless they progressively overload in the intensity of the exercises over time. In order to build muscle, there are certain factors, which are – a) Mechanical tension Muscles respond by growing when they undergo mechanical tension, which in simple words means lifting heavy weights. It is now scientifically proven that lifting up to 90% of one's maximum weight allows one to perform more reps with the same tension and increasing the amount of time under tension. b) Metabolic stress Metabolic stress can be achieved by reversing directions just before ending the range of motion in order to maintain constant tension. Due to this the blood gets pumped into the muscles resulting in cellular swelling. This is the pump that is experienced immediately post working out. c) Muscle damage It is necessary to incur muscle damage in order to rebuild muscle but too much damage can be counterproductive as it leaves the body unable to recover for the next workout. It is necessary to pay attention and slow down the eccentric part of the exercise, which is when you lower yourself down into a squat or a push up as it increases the muscle damage. © Pixabay Bodyweight training, if done with the correct intensity and made more and more challenging over time can help beginners build decent amount of muscle at home. Along with this you will also improve agility, functionality, resilience and tenacity. About the author: Mickey Mehta is leading holistic health corporate life coach.
  25. Women's safety has forever been a concern in India, especially in New Delhi. And when reports surface about women getting molested and raped even in broad daylight, our faith only crumbles and the thought of travelling alone at night turns into a nightmarish vision for many women. However, some women have started feeling safe while travelling at night, thanks to certain people who are going out of their way to ensure that women are safe irrespective of what time it is. One such person is Praveen Ranjan, an auto driver, who commands all our respect for doing his bit to help women. Twitter Praveen Ranjan never takes fare from the women who are travelling at night. When asked about the reason, he said, "Madam main kuch nahi leta ladkiyon se itni raat ko. Unko thik se ghar pahuchana zyada zaroori hain." Praveen's story was shared by Neha Das, who said she was glad that she met him. She wrote in her post, "Yesterday was just another day in office. Finished work just in time to leave a little before 12 am. Delhi winters are here, the streets are mostly empty. While I waited for an auto outside office, this gentleman stopped. On asking the fare, he said "Madam main kuch nahi leta ladkiyon se itni raat ko. Unko thik se ghar pahuchana zyada zaroori hain." "I stood there wondering is he for real," she further wrote and I am sure everyone reading this post would have thought the same. This autowala, whom I would like to call the unsung hero, refused to take any money from Neha, but after she insisted, he took the fare without the night charges. Not all heroes wear capes, some like Praveen silently help women rebuild their trust in society and ensure their safety. We salute this unsung hero.
