  1. Bollywood is truly made of dreams with its larger-than-life sets, picturesque locations and grandeur venues. And well, what could be more resplendent than royal palaces? Hindi filmmakers don’t shy away from making huge and expensive sets to get as real as possible. However, apart from shooting in make-believe magnificent sets, many films in the industry have been actually shot at real palaces, giving the audience an insight at India's rich culture, heritage and beautiful forts. Check out the list of some of the popular mainstream films that were shot at these luxurious palaces of the country. View the full article
  2. Known as the Father of the Indian space program, Dr Vikram Sarabhai is a name that is written in the pages of history as one of India’s leading pioneers who strived hard to veer Independent India towards a self-reliant, curious and innovation-friendly tomorrow. Dr Vikram Sarabhai is by far one of the most notable physicists, industrialists and institute-founders India has seen. Given his love for the space and cosmos, sports, statistics and even the arts, Vikram Sarabhai used his vision and resources to establish some of India’s most distinguished institutes. Dr Vikram Sarabhai is credited with setting up 35 institutes and entities during his lifetime and here are 5 of the most path-breaking institutions he pioneered which changed the face of India and put us on a global platform. 1. PRL - Physical Research Laboratory © Twitter satyakumar_y Often called the ‘Cradle of Space Sciences’ in India, PRL is said to have been a brainchild of Vikram Sarabhai who conceptualised it at the age of 23 while he was still studying in the UK. It was set up in 1947 at Sarabhai’s residence with research on cosmic rays. It was later formally established at the MG Science Institute in Ahmedabad. Today, the laboratory offers research programmes in astronomy, astrophysics, atmospheric sciences and aeronomy, Earth sciences, Solar System studies as well as theoretical physics. 2. ISRO - Indian Space Research Organisation © ISRO It was the launch of Russia’s Sputnik satellite which convinced Sarabhai that India needed a space agency of its own as well. He proposed the idea to the Indian government and convinced them to start the Indian National Committee for Space Research (Incospar) programme. It was his vision and commitment to the cause that gave India its first space research organisation, which was later renamed as ISRO. Vikram Sarabhai, not only identified the importance of space technology in our nation’s development, but also guided ISRO on its mission to provide India with space-based services and develop the technologies to achieve the same independently. Today, ISRO is one of the six largest space agencies in the world. 3. IIM-A - Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad © Twitter satyakipatil Touted to be the most popular and sought after business school in India, IIM-A was the product of Vikram Sarabhai’s another measure to promote growth, self-reliance and grassroot development in the private sector. Established in 1961, it was the second IIM to come up on Indian soil with Vikram Sarabhai as the first Director of the institute. Set up with a vision to model committed management cadre for the nation, this is one of his greatest legacies to the country. 4. VSSC - Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre © Twitter RakshaRamaiah Known as a major space research centre of ISRO, VSSC focuses on rocket and space vehicles for India's satellite programme. Located in Thiruvananthapuram, it was initially known as the Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launching Station (TERLS) but was renamed after its founder Dr. Vikram Sarabhai. he Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre is one of the main research and development establishments within ISRO. 5. IGCAR - Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research © Twitter youdle One of the country’s premier nuclear research centres, IGCAR was established in 1971 under the aegis of Vikram Sarabhai. It is a dedicated centre that works exclusively for the pursuit of fast reactor science and technology. Initially it was called the Reactor Research Centre (RRC) but was later renamed as Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) by former Indian PM Rajiv Gandhi. The centre is engaged in a broad-based multidisciplinary programme of scientific research and advanced engineering directed towards the development of Fast Breeder Reactor technology in India.

  3. My favourite console this generation is the Nintendo Switch simply because I can use it anywhere I want with the physical controller that gets attached to its side. Razer launched a new gamepad for mobiles that is heavily influenced by the Nintendo Switch's Joy-Cons and is essentially the perfect accessory for mobile gamers. © Razer The Razer Kishi follows a periscope and joy-con inspired design that works with almost every Android phone. The controller plugs into the USB-C port of the phone which means one does not have to deal with input lag over Bluetooth. It eliminates every frustration we have come to associate with lacklustre Bluetooth controllers and just works like a gamepad is supposed to. Smartphone gaming is still very much popular in India with millions of gamers playing all kinds of titles. From battle Royale to casual games; India has been at the forefront of mobile gaming for the past few years. The Razer Kishi can be used for different types of gaming -- for example, cloud gaming is going to be the next big revolution in the industry that will make games accessible to an audience in India that don’t necessarily play on traditional gaming consoles. Reliance Jio is already talking about game streaming on their LTE and 5G networks and sooner or later game streaming will play a major role in India’s smartphone gaming industry. © Razer While services like xCloud, Stadia and GeForce Now are yet to launch in the country, the controller can be used for playing normal Android games and even emulate older games from previous generations. The Razer Kishi is probably the only smartphone gamepad that actually makes sense using since the design already works well for the Nintendo Switch. The Razer Kishi essentially turns any smartphone into a portable Xbox or a handheld gaming device. There have been other accessories out there that do something similar, but none of them are as refined as the Razer Kishi. © Xbox Razer The Razer Kishi comes with two analog sticks, four face buttons, a directional pad, and the shoulder buttons i.e. L1/L2, R1/R2. It basically replicates the Xbox and PlayStation controller in the most practical design we’ve ever seen. While the Kishi is only compatible with Android phones at the moment, support for iOS devices is on its way. The Razer Kishi retails for about $70 (Rs 5,240) and this accessory really needs to make its way to India sooner before knock-offs take over the market. We’ve already talked about how important game streaming could be for India and Razer Kishi needs to be a part of that journey. View the full article

  6. Earlier this month, Samsung announced a new accessory to keep your phones and other accessories clean and safe. Yes, Samsung's UV Sterilizer. Well, guess what? It's now available in India and you can get one for yourself. For those of you who don't know, Samsung UV Sterilizer, as the name suggests, will effectively kill 99% of bacteria and germs. The UV Sterilizer is manufactured by Samsung C&T, a partner of the Samsung Mobile Accessory Partnership Program (SMAPP), and is designed to fit a variety of device sizes so you can sterilize many of the products you use the most. © Samsung Pricing & AvailabilitySamsung has launched the UV Sterilizer in India for Rs 3,599, which we think is a great price for something that's so useful. Obviously, it's not proven to kill the Coronavirus and keep you safe from that, but we think keeping your phone and other accessories bacteria and germ-free are just as important. And besides that, there are some reports out there claiming that UV light is indeed effective against the Coronavirus, so why not? It'll be available starting next month at retail channels and Samsung's online store too. View the full article
  7. Last month, the Indian government decided to ban the use of 59 Chinese origin apps including the likes of TikTok, Camscanner, and more. Out of all the apps, the ban of TikTok is probably what became the talk of the hour. There's been a lot of banter on this topic, but it looks like TikTok wants to get back in the business in India. TikTok's parent company Bytedance is said to have been in talks with the Indian government about setting up local data centers. © Reuters Yes, it is understood that the company is ready to set up data centers in India to store user information locally so it doesn't have to leave the country. Privacy and data protection have been the primary reason behind the ban of these apps in India, and it looks like TikTok wants to change that by storing the data locally. TikTok has denied any breach in data, but it says data centers can be set up here for more emphasis on privacy. A TikTok's spokesperson noted that they have submitted their response to the government and are working with them to provide any clarifications to allay the concerns. Will TikTok Come Back? © Reuters Well, a lot of TikTok users want to see the app make a comeback in India, although it's hard to tell if we'll be able to use TikTok anytime soon. There's still a lot going on in the background that we probably aren't aware of. So let's just wait for more clarity on the same. Source: TOI View the full article
  8. An Indian court has asked Alibaba Group founder Jack Ma to appear after a former employee came forwards claiming to have been wrongfully fired. The employee was fired by the company as he objected to censorship and fake news content on apps owned by the Alibaba Group, as seen by Reuters. © Reuters The app has already been banned by Indian security agencies such as UC News, UC Browser amongst 57 other apps citing national security reasons, after the clash in June between the countries. India has also asked the affected apps for answers that include questions whether their apps have been censoring content or acted for any foreign government. Pushpendra Singh Parmar, who worked as an associate director at the UC Web office until October 2017, alleges UC Web was censoring content in India that deemed unfavourable to China and its Government. He also alleges other apps such as UC Browser were also censoring content and at times, featured false news "to cause social and political turmoil”. © Alibaba Group UC India said in a statement to Reuters, "unwavering in its commitment to the India market and the welfare of its local employees, and its policies are in compliance with local laws. We are unable to comment on ongoing litigation”. Parmar has also revelled the company had a "sensitive words list” with keywords in both Hindi and English such as "India-China border" and "Sino-India war”. Keywords such as these were censored by UC Web in India to control any news published against China and were automatically or manually rejected by an audit system. © Reuters It has been long rumoured that Chinese apps tend to censor content which is unfavourable to the Chinese Government and this is the first instance when a former employee has come forward with those claims. What do you think about Alibaba’s effort to censor content in India that was highly critical of the Chinese Government? Let us know in the comments section. Source: Reuters View the full article
  9. The opening partnership between Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag is considered to be one of the best and most successful duos to open the batting order for any international cricket team. Having shared the pitch in 93 One-Day Internationals, the two went on to form a 3,919 run-partnership over the years and with an impressive average of 42.13. In the process, the two also share 12 centuries and 18 half-centuries and have the fourth-best record in all over international cricket. © Reuters But because of the extremely shy and reserved nature of Sehwag, the idea to go ahead with this partnership might not have worked in the first place. Thankfully, Sachin had already been in this spot before and he knew what he had to do for Sehwag to start opening up and feel like a part of the partnership they were destined to make. In a conversation with Vikram Sathaye on What The Duck, Tendulkar said: “When Viru (Virender Sehwag) had just joined, he was a shy guy. He just wouldn’t talk to me. I thought this can’t work. If we need to play together, bat together, I need to make him feel comfortable. So, I told him 'let’s catch up on dinner'. Where he told me he was a vegetarian.” © Reuters “He was not eating chicken because he was told he will become fat. Only thing I told him was if I looked fat! Ever since, he has been eating chicken,” he added. The relationship between Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar continues to remain as great as it once was on the field. © Reuters For Tendulkar, Sehwag is just Viru, the man who can only be kept from talking only if he is given something to eat. While for Sehwag, Sachin is nothing short of his god. They laugh, make fun of each other and share hilarious stories from their time in the middle of the ground but the sense of mutual admiration and respect that they have for each other comes from years of getting to know each other and become family. And that’s what they are, family. View the full article
  10. Since when did we become a country of an over-sensitive, raging and intolerant population that can’t even handle a joke? What happened to taking a few below the belt blows made in pure jest? What happened to dissecting sarcasm with our peers when our brain failed us and enjoying satires with a pinch of salt? Are you trying to tell me that nowadays a joke is funny only as long as you crack it or it makes your crush spill a few fake laughs? Have we become so frigid and shallow that we find it okay for people to go around making rape and life threats to another individual because they made the horrible mistake of cracking a joke? And just because one person doesn’t find it funny and decides to take offence, that makes it okay for them to go around abusing and threatening the other with great harm? © Twitter/VireshSwami12 After the entire Agrima Joshua incident which highlighted how fearless people have become when it comes to publicly abusing another person and promising to harm them, now, comedian Rohan Joshi took to Instagram to share that he is going offline because someone decided to leak his personal phone number and house address, and now, he is constantly receiving abuses and life threats which have forced him to go underground in order to ensure the safety of his family and himself. © Instagram/Rohan Joshi I mean, what have we even come to? We cannot even handle a little criticism coming our way? We can’t stand dissent any more? We can’t handle two varying views any more? And above all, we have given up on our sensibilities and human morals in the name of so-called political-religious campaigns? I’m sorry, but if you are going to play the ‘free country’ card in the name of abuse and lawlessness, then you need to remember that this free country and free speech is just as much someone else’s as it is yours. And before you decide to go around threatening people with death and assault, you must remember you are not above the law. © Facebook/Sorabh Pant Unfortunately, comedians like Agrima Joshua and Rohan Joshi aren’t the only ones to have been subjected to public outrage and threats over their jokes. Previously, comedians like Sorabh Pant have spoken up about receiving death threats in person and over social media, because of their takes on some personality or religion or even the society at large. When comedian Kunal Kamra decided to voice his opinion about the government and its version of patriotism the only way he knows how (i.e. through jokes), it almost cost him his life. These are just a few incidents, but for many comics out there this has been a part of their life for much longer than they let on. © Facebook/Kunal Kamra In the light of recent events, comedian Gaurav Kapoor also questioned people’s conscience and made an emotional appeal to his viewers to be a little considerate of their words and actions towards comedians who are just trying to make people laugh, and share a new perspective about things. View this post on Instagram@instagram Thank You for saying that post did not violate community standards when reported ..A post shared by (@gauravkpoor) In the light of recent events, Comedian and actor Vir Das also took to Twitter to share a ‘pre-apology’ because, obviously, he knows he too would be attacked anytime now and so, to save himself and his loved ones from any sort of emotional or physical harm that may be hurled their way in the future Das decided to apologise in advance. #SabkosorryOkBye I have decided to start pre-apologising for my jokes in the wake of what's happening to Indian comedians. Here's my apology video. Should anyone ever need an apology from me in the future, please refer to this video pic.twitter.com/DwoB7IqpMx — Vir Das (@thevirdas) July 12, 2020 This growing sense of hopelessness and fear that is being fed to comedians and dissenters at large, is a reminder that goons and abusers are enjoying a free hand and exploiting the law in the name of safeguarding certain ideologies and self-serving propagandas. © Twitter/Swara Bhaskar To call any of it as just 'trolling' isn’t even acceptable anymore because none of this is a passing incident in the life of a public figure/comedian. This kind of harassment involving a real threat to life and safety is a glimpse into a future where threat culture not only survives, but also thrives because bystanders were too scared to speak up and call out the culprits. Culprits who have no fear of the law or being penalised but instead, find strength in the belief that they will get away with murder and rape because. It’s high time we identify, deter and shun culprits like Shubham Mishra, who think it is okay to do whatever they please without fearing the consequences. Show these abusers their place and fight back against these faceless monsters before we normalise virtual lynchings just like the actual ones. View the full article
  11. Foreign firms have spent tens of billions of dollars in India in recent years as they fight for a piece of the Asian giant's burgeoning digital economy
  12. While most of us watched Karan Joharâs Student Of The Year, we thought such schools donât exist at all. And most of us wanted to study in a fancy and posh school like St. Teresa but didnât know if such schools existed. To our surprise, many schools in India give us the Bollywood set the vibe and are exactly how it was shown in KJoâs SOTY. So, here is a list of 5 such schools in India thatâll astound you and give Bollywood sets a run for their money- Mayo College, Ajmer © Youtube/Kanak Arora This one looks less of a school and more of a five-star luxurious resort. This school has a polo ground and a golf course and is an all-boys institution. This institution has an infrastructure that looks exactly like a royal palace and offers a quality education that enables the students to dream beyond average. Army Public School, Dagshai © Youtube/Mandeep Singh This school is spread across 40 acres of land and is situated right on the hilltop. Also, this one is ranked 6th amongst most prestigious boarding schools in India. It not only helps in grooming the students but also enables them in shaping their personalities for future endeavors. Bishop Cotton School, Shimla © Youtube/Kanak Arora Bishop Cotton School is one of the most iconic schools in Asia for boys. Bishop Cotton School, Shimla has given us many ambassadors, ministers, politicians, and judges of the country. The school is spread across 56 acres and is around 4Kms away from main Shimla. Doon School, Dehradun © Youtube/EasyShiksha This all-boys school was built in 1923 and is spread across 70-acre of land amidst lush greenery. Apart from A-one education the institution also has a huge auditorium and various knowledge-specific departments that allow the students to accomplish all their future endeavors. Hyderabad Public School, Begumpet © Youtube/HYBIZTV The school premise looks like a royal heritage and this school was built in 1923. Itâs an approximately 123-acre huge campus that is scenic, beautiful and luxurious at the same time. The campus has eight horses, larger than life swimming pools, and a dining hall that accommodates 1600 students. Woah! View the full article
  13. Weâve all tried our hand at using portable USB fans, handheld fans and anything else we can think of to keep us cool during the summers. However, there may just be the perfect gadget now available in Japan for everyone who needs a little bit cooling this summer. Sony created a wearable air conditioner called the Reon Pocket and has started selling it in Japan from this week. © Sony The wearable air conditioner was unveiled last year and Sony said the device supports both cooling and heating modes and can be used on the move. The device is quite small and looks very similar to Appleâs Magic Mouse. It can be worn near your neck and even comes with an undershirt with a pocket to place the Reon Pocket. The shirt is quite breathable as it is made of plaster fabric and has seams to hide the air conditioner in the pocket. You can also use your own undershirts but Sony suggests it should be loose and breathable clothing for the device to be effective. © Sony The Sony Reon Pocket is not meant to be used while working out or anything that involves intense sweating. In order to control the device, one needs to use its smartphone app that connects via Bluetooth. It can even be used manually as users can choose from four different temperature levels. The portable air conditioner is currently only available to buy in Japan and we desperately need it here in India as air conditioners are ramping up huge electricity bills ever since people have started to work from home. © Sony The Sony Reon Pocket costs around 13,000 Yen in Japan which translates to roughly Rs 9,100. The undershirt is sold separately for Rs 1260. However, there is no news whether we would see this product outside of Japan. Sony did show off a âLiteâ variant of the device last year where one could only use the manual modes; however, it seems like Sony may launch that later in the year. Would you buy a wearable air conditioner if Sony sold the Reon Pocket here in India? It does sound like a whacky idea but could just be the solution to our hot weather and high electricity bills.

  15. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives in more ways than one. Even after months of lockdown, the virus is still lurking around in the various parts of the world, making it hard for us to get back to our day-to-day lives. But it looks like we finally have some good news. According to a new report, it looks like India's first indigenous COVID-19 could be ready for public use by August 15. The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has asked medical institutions and hospitals to expedite clinical trials for the vaccine. © Reuters If everything goes to the plan, then it looks like the vaccine will be made available to the public by August 15 2020. Here's everything that you need to know: Joining Hands With BBIL ICMR has partnered with Bharat Biotech International Limited (BBIL) for the clinical trials of this indigenous vaccine 'Covaxin' for the coronavirus disease. A total of 12 institutes have been selected for the clinical trial. Trial Locations © Reuters These institutes are located in Visakhapatnam, Rohtak, New Delhi, Patna, Belgaum (Karnataka), Nagpur, Gorakhpur, Kattankulathur (Tamil Nadu), Hyderabad, Arya Nagar, Kanpur (Uttar Pradesh), Goa, and Bhubaneswar-based Institute of Medical Sciences and SUM Hospital. Top Priority Right Now ICMR Director-General Dr Balram Bhargava noted that this is one of the "top priority projects which is being monitored at the top-most level of the government". The vaccine was developed and manufactured in Bharat Biotech's facility located in Genome Valley in Hyderabad. Another Vaccine In Development © Reuters Meanwhile, another candidate is also being developed Ahmedabad-based Zydus Cadila Healthcare. It's also considered to be a potential vaccine candidate, however, we don't have much about it just yet. The First Vaccine To Receive Approval The 'Covaxin' has become the first candidate developed in India to receive the Drug Controller General of India's approval to enter human trials.

  16. The Indian government's decision to ban the use of 59 Chinese apps in India is still making headlines across the globe. This is indeed a huge and unprecedented move by our government that is going to do a great deal of damage to TikTok, in particular. TikTok has a huge user-base in India with millions of daily active users. And since the app is completely unusable right now, TikTok's parent company is facing a huge loss of up to $6 billion. The same has been confirmed by China's state-run media The Global Times. Here, check it out - The loss of Chinese internet company ByteDance â mother company of Tik Tok â could be as high as $6 billion after Indian government banned 59 Chinese apps including Tik Tok, following deadly border clash between Indian and Chinese troops last month: source pic.twitter.com/wGvnqVO7mR â Global Times (@globaltimesnews) July 1, 2020 Bytedance could lose up to Rs 45 thousand crore given now that the app has been taken down from both the Google Play Store as well as the App Store. The report further noted that TikTok was downloaded 112 million times in May alone, a lot of those downloads came from India. Now, you can imagine the extent of damage we're talking about. Global Times also noted that the move has dealt a severe blow to the confidence of Chinese investors and traders. Not to mention, this decision comes just as China is yet to fully recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. For safety, security, defence, sovereignty & integrity of India and to protect data & privacy of people of India the Government has banned 59 mobile apps. Jai Hind! ð®ð³ â Ravi Shankar Prasad (@rsprasad) June 29, 2020 As far as India is concerned, we already have a ton of TikTok alternatives on the market. From Mitron to Chingari, we already have a lot of apps up and running. It's time for Indian developers to step in and come up with more innovative apps. View the full article
  17. Taking to Twitter, the premier lamented that India's constant schemes are a threat to South Asian region
  18. In a surprising move, the Indian government decided to ban the use of 59 Chinese apps in India last night. The list included some really popular apps like TikTok, Cam Scanner, and more. Luckily, there are a ton of alternatives out there for almost every app on the list. And if there wasn't an alternative, a lot of Indian developers decided to step up their game overnight to come up with something new. On the same lines, there's now a new desi TikTok rival called 'Chingari'. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer Yes, the app is indeed called 'Chingari' and it's essentially a short video platform just like TikTok. Pretty sure most of you guys are hearing this name for the first time. Well, that's because this app was nowhere to be seen on the radar until yesterday. Now, it has over 1 million downloads on the Google Play Store. It literally registered 100,000 downloads per hour, which is absolutely insane. This was revealed by Sumit Ghosh, co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Chingari app on Twitter. 100,000 downloads per hour, guys please be patient! we are working on the servers and getting things up and running asap! pic.twitter.com/h3lGCbe4yl â Sumit Ghosh (@sumitgh85) June 29, 2020 So, what do we know about this app? Sadly, there's not a lot that we know, so far, because the app was completely unusable at the time of writing this story. We downloaded the app to check it out, but we were mostly stuck on a white loading screen. We think the devs were not ready for an overwhelming response overnight. While most people are on the lookout for a TikTok alternative in India, we're not sure if 'Chingari' is the right one to go for. It seems like a relatively new app made to attract users just in time for the Chinese ban. We suggest you wait a bit longer till we get some more clarity on the app. View the full article
  19. On June 29, the Government of India decided to ban 59 Chinese applications as an initial response to the rising border tensions between the two nations. One of the most popular social media apps in India, TikTok was on top of the list and effective June 30, it is unavailable on Google Play Store. Understandably, the move caused an upstir of reactions and responses from people from all over the nation, most of which were in favour of the decision. However, one particular individual who became an easy target for the internet trolls was Indian cricketer, Yuzvendra Chahal. Ever since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, Chahalâs popularity on the app surged because of the kind of videos he made for his followers. Funny, entertaining, even romantic (there was something for everyone). My first TikTok video with dad Dad & Son ï¸ #Quarantine #staysafe ð» pic.twitter.com/DJklsz1bDH â Yuzvendra Chahal (@yuzi_chahal) March 26, 2020 Having said that, many believed that the spinner had indulged himself a bit too much and that he needed to take a step back. Indian cricket skipper Virat Kohli even called him a clown. âYou should go and check out âYuzvendra Chahal TikTok videosâ,â Kohli told South Africaâs AB de Villiers in an Instagram Live chat. âYou will not believe that this guy is playing international cricket. He is 29 years old, just go and look at his videos.â âHeâs an absolute clown,â he added. Wellm, now that the app is gone, people had the chance to voice their opinion much like Kohli and they took that shot: Me to Warner and Chahal:#TiktokBan pic.twitter.com/gwsYma4BWQ â mubin (@_mubean__) June 29, 2020Rumours coming that @yuzi_chahal is in depression due to the banning of Tik-Tok in India . @BCCI should keep in touch with chahal. #TikTok #tiktokbanindia #tiktokbanned #tiktokban #tiktokteens #tiktokers â Asik Sekh (@AsikSekh17) June 30, 2020#TikTok #tiktokbanindia #RIPTiktok Yuzi Chahal right now pic.twitter.com/yZgNxa6GKz â Kohli Mass (@Kohli_mass) June 30, 2020𤣠@imVkohli @yuzi_chahal #Tiktok pic.twitter.com/TyMTHMEW2J â Jai (@Shanmuga214) June 30, 2020Yet another cricketer who became the butt of jokes for the Indian audience is Australian batsman David Warner. Even though he is in Australia where TikTok remains as prevalent as ever, heâs made videos for his Indian fans mostly. His family and he would get together and dance to the songs from Indian films, his performance with his daughter on Katrina Kaifâs Sheila Ki Jawani became an instant hit, especially amongst the fans of IPL franchise SunRisers Hyderabad.

  20. Former Indian skipper and batsman Rahul Dravid has always been considered to be one of the most humble, calm and thoughtful people to have played for the Indian cricket team. He spoke very little, tried to be good friends and teammates with everyone and let his bat do the talking for him on the field. That is probably why even the biggest names from Indian cricket, like current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and âgod of cricketâ Sachin Tendulkar respected his opinion and listened to him. © Reuters During an interview with Sportskeeda on Facebook, Team Indiaâs ex-manager Lalchand Rajput shared one such incident during which the two legends of the game agreed with Dravid, who wanted them to let the younger players play in the first-ever T20 World Cup in 2007. âYes, it is true,ââRajput said. âRahul Dravid was the captain in England and some players came directly from England to Johannesburg (for the tournament) so they said âletâs give an opportunity to the youngstersâ. But after winning the World Cup they must have repented it when we won the World Cup." It was one of Sachin Tendulkarâs greatest wishes to win a world cup for the country during his magnificent career. He had been a part of the team for over a decade by then and still looking for that glory. © Reuters When the T20 World Cup took place, nobody expected India to win. Also, not a lot of players took the 20-over format of the game that seriously back then. So, when Dravid approached the senior players, they were fine with letting this one go. âUltimately, he (Sachin) won in 2011, but he was dying to win that World Cup, and this team won on the first attempt,â Rajput said. âI was a cricket manager of the 2007 T20 World Cup team. It was a big challenge, because it was a young team. There were a few experienced players, but the real seniors did not play with this team. It was a real opportunity for me as I was the coach for the first time, MS Dhoni was the captain for the first time. So, we really gelled well,â Rajput said. © Twitter /One For All âOur theme during the World Cup was âtension lene ka nahi, dene ka and Dhoni really believed in the motto that people will talk things, but we need to focus on our strengths, and donât have to worry about what others are saying. âThis was the first time T20I World Cup was played, and we had a lot of hungry, young fellows, who were looking to make a name for themselves, and get a permanent place for themselves in the Indian Team. It was a good platform. © Twitter /One For All âThere were certain senior players who were looking to make a comeback and cement their place in the team. It was a good mixture of senior and junior players. The T20I tournament is for young legs, you got to run around, and energetic, and super fit, and this made the difference in the team.â View the full article
  21. While the anti-China sentiment is strong online due to the recently heightened border tensions; companies like OnePlus, Xiaomi and others are still selling out their products online. In the case of the OnePlus 8 Pro, the smartphone sold out within minutes once it went on sale on Amazon India, according to The Quint. Xiaomi recently launched a range of laptops called the Mi Notebook 14 series which also got a good response online and was sold out in its first sale period. © Xiaomi It is quite remarkable to see products selling out even though there are calls for a boycott of Chinese products. Having said that, many Chinese companies operate, manufacture and pay taxes in India and if youâre wondering which ones; you can check out our list here. However, it is worth pointing out that no official figures have been released that would indicate how many units have been sold for each product. It is still quite impressive to see companies enjoying good sale numbers despite the online backlash Chinese companies in India have been facing from customers on the internet. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The fact that smartphones and electronics from Chinese brands are still selling out is indicative of the fact there has been no impact on sales. Even though #BoycottChineseProducts have been trending on social media due to the border tension, the market seems to feel otherwise. Recently, Indian security and intelligence agencies released a list of 52 apps that have been deemed unsafe. The report raises concerns that these apps collect private data and send it outside of India. Some of the most popular apps include Tik Tok, UC Browser, ShareIt, Clean Master, Weibo, Mi Community, Mi Store, Mi Video call, We Chat, Xender and others. Source: The Quint View the full article
