  1. While most people were busy celebrating India's 72nd Independence Day yesterday, others were busy increasing Pornhub's traffic because they were given an offer that no one, I repeat no one, can ever refuse in their right minds. via GIPHY Independence Day for brands primarily means introducing discounts and flash sale offers, and Pornhub defeated everyone by introducing the lucrative 'JAI HIND!' offer - give one week of premium access for FREE. We're not late for April! It's not a pathetic joke! It's true and here's proof. LoooooooL. #Proud2BIndian pic.twitter.com/ByPyk2QsLh — That Goan Boy (@schmmuck) August 15, 2018 We came across this tweet where someone shared a screenshot of the homepage of Pornhub. Although we use office WiFi and don't want to get fired for watching NSFW videos, we still took the risk to check if it's true or not and turns out, the offer still exists. Pornhub And this offer isn't available for a day or 48 hours. People can access the free premium services for a whole week. Are you guys listening? 1 free week of access to premium service. So, what are y'all waiting for, Christmas?
  2. Once upon a time, a young engineering student boarded a bus to attend his classes at Mumbai's famed Elphinstone College. Everything seemed normal and there was nothing out of the ordinary, but that very bus ride was going to change that young man's life forever. It was on this bus ride, that the young student ran into his senior Baloo Gupte - who would eventually become a prolific leg-spinner for India. Gupte asked the young man if he wanted to be the 12th man for their college team, where he would earn Rs 3 per game. The young student got excited and agreed. And, as fate will have it, India lost out on an engineer, but found a history-making captain - Ajit Wadekar. With a little over 2000 runs in 37 Tests and just 73 runs in two ODIs he played, the statistics of Ajit Wadekar might not appeal to the new-age fans of Indian cricket, who are used to watching the likes of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma break records with blistering batting performances. But, for the seasoned campaigners who saw the makings of India as a world dominating cricket force it is today, Wadekar was no less than a God, whose death on 15th August marked a sad day in the sport. With a heavy heart we bid adieu to Ajit Wadekar. The former India captain is no more. Cricketer, Coach, Manager and Chairman of Selectors - Mr Wadekar served Indian cricket in many different ways. pic.twitter.com/6zdFtleXB9 — BCCI (@BCCI) August 15, 2018 An aggressive left-handed batsman, Wadekar picked the bones of opposition bowlers in first-class cricket where he amassed 15,380 runs including 36 hundreds and 84 fifties during his playing time from 1958 till 1975. It was his strong batting performances in domestic cricket that saw him earning the India call-up in 1966. © Getty Images While his ordinary scores of 8 and 4 in the two innings against West Indies didn't do justice to his abilities with the willow, Wadekar quickly made amends by scoring his maiden fifty in the very next game. In his next three games, Wadekar went on to score three fifties including a score of 91 in England's hostile conditions, where the current crop of Indian cricketers is still struggling. With 242 runs in three matches, Wadekar had become a vital cog in India's middle-order. If his exploits in England showed his ability to perform under pressure, Wadekar showed signs of greatness when he smashed a brilliant 99 in the second Test against Australia in 1967. A well-deserved fifty eluded him in the third and final Test Down Under, but Wadekar, by now, had established himself as a tower of strength for the Indian batting order. But, the best was yet to come. Ajit Wadekar's impact on Indian cricket is immense. His contemporaries worshipped him, such was his aura. Found him to be a tough character as coach. Exceptional Indian cricketer... RIP Sir.?? Recorded this on my iPhone last Dec from Point in a friendly fixture. So glad I did. pic.twitter.com/XbdFGn4Izp — Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) August 15, 2018 And, when it did, the world took notice of arguably one of the best No. 3 batsmen in the history of Indian cricket. After beginning the 1968 tour of New Zealand with consecutive fifties in the first Test, Wadekar slammed a match-winning 143 at Wellington which was pivotal in scripting India's 3-1 series win- their very first triumph away from home. At a time when India - under the tutelage of the great Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi - were establishing themselves as a genuine force in world cricket, Wadekar etched his name in the history books during what would soon become the golden year of Indian cricket. With Pataudi opting out of the tough tour of the fearsome West Indies side in 1971, Wadekar - with the help of Vijay Merchant's casting vote - was bestowed with the responsibility of leading the side. © Getty Images The batting genius of Dilip Sardesai and debutant Sunil Gavaskar ensured India would go on to shock Sir Garfield Sobers' brigade with a 1-0 win in the five-match Test series. And, that's not all. After taming the Caribbean giants in their own den, the Wadekar-led India toured England and disturbed the world order in cricket. After the first two games resulted in a draw, the three-match series was down to the wire in the third and final Test. Ray Illingworth's team tried to contain their opponents, but Bhagwath Chandrasekhar's leg-break (2-76 & 6-38) bamboozled the Englishmen who were eventually forced to endure a four-wicket loss and, in turn, a 1-0 series defeat. Deeply saddened by the passing away of #AjitWadekar He was more than a coach to the entire team - a father figure and a shrewd tactician. My heartfelt condolences to his family and loved ones. He will be missed. Thank you Sir for the confidence shown in my ability! ?? — Anil Kumble (@anilkumble1074) August 16, 2018 While India were officially crowned World Cup winners under the leadership of Kapil Dev in 1983, Wadekar's side - owing to victories against West Indies and England away from home - was unofficially deemed as the world champion in 1971. Another series win against England (this time at home) in 1972/73 - where he amassed 312 runs - further boosted Wadekar's resume as a prolific leader. But, in 1974, when his end as a cricketer came, it was swift and cruel. A 3-0 series loss on the 1974 tour of England (which included India's 42-run dismissal - their lowest-ever Test total till date - at Lord's), saw Wadekar getting sacked as captain which further instigated his decision to call time on his career. © Getty Images It was definitely not the end many had thought for Wadekar, but it still didn't stop him from contributing to Indian cricket. Later in 1992, Wadekar became the first official head coach appointed by India. Under his four-year tenure, India enjoyed a dominant run on the spinning tracks at home, most notably blanking England 3-0 in 1992/93. Deeply saddened to hear about the demise of Ajit Wadekar Sir. He was someone who was instrumental in bringing out the best in us during the 90s. We'll always be grateful for his advice and guidance. Praying for strength for his family during this difficult time. ?? RIP pic.twitter.com/coSyac73ot — Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) August 16, 2018 His next notable contribution came during India's tour of New Zealand in 1994. It was Wadekar who undoubtedly played a crucial role in turning Sachin Tendulkar's career around by making the 'Master Blaster' open the innings for India in the ODI series against the Kiwis. And, as it turned out, Tendulkar went on to corner all batting records and emerged as one of the game's greatest ever batsmen. A chance cricketer, prolific captain, admirable coach and, most importantly, a great human being; Wadekar donned many hats over the years in Indian cricket. And, while he might have left his ailing mortal body behind, Wadekar's immortal feats and achievements will live on forever and echo in eternity.
  3. Gone were the days when we couldn't wait to get home to catch our favourite shows on the TV. Things have become so easy, now that literally everything is available online, that we don't even need to worry about 'missing out' on anything Web series have become the latest form of entertainment to millions, not only because of their gripping content, but also for the convenience at which it comes to the viewer. Obviously, India is joining this trend and with gusto too. Moving away from the monotonous daily soaps and sagas with their bland content, here is a list of 5 awesome Indian web series that you must definitely watch: 1. The Good Vibe Bringing a relatable show is Sony LIV's- 'The good Vibe'. Consisting of 6 episodes, this web series is a must-watch for everyone, especially the newly-married couples. Focusing on the complexities of relationships, the involvement of relatives to 'society kya kahegi?' and some heartfelt moments, this young couple's story is basically every couple's story. Witness their encounter with societal expectations as this humorous yet heartfelt web series is a total must-watch. 2. Ready 2 Mingle Zoom Studios' web series 'Ready to Mingle' has got to be on your list. After 'It Happened in Hong Kong' Amol Parashar and Aahana Kumra are back to entertain us once again as Nirav and Myra, who are the perfect love-birds, looking to play cupid to lonely single people. 3. Mirzapur Amazon Prime Originals' 'Mirzapur' is one of the most talked-about shows right now. Starring some exceptional actors like Ali Fazal, Shweta Tripathi, Vikrant Massey and Pankaj Tripathi, this gritty gangster saga takes you to the streets of Varanasi. 'Mirzapur' brings together heart-pounding action, gangsters armed with sharp minds, plenty of dry humour, topped with the perfect amount of *** and violence. Executed by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, directed by Gurmeet Singh, this show rolls out at the end of this month. 4. The Trip 2 Who doesn't like a show that involves best friends and travelling? After the successful run of the first season comes the second season of 'The Trip' which is to air in September. Within no time, this show has become an instant hit among the millennials. 'The Trip 2' is a story of four girlfriends who go on an impromptu trip to Pondicherry with limited money and no understanding of the local language. This trip promises to be another memorable journey as it is rife with adventure, drama, twists and turns, self-discovery and a generous dose of romance. 'The Trip 2' features Amyra Dastur, Mallika Dua, Sapna Pabbi and Shweta Tripathi and we hope it's as amazing as the first one. Check out the trailer for the first season here: 5. College Romance Making you all nostalgic is Timeliner's 'College Romance', which will take you back to your college days. It is relatable, fun and an entertaining watch. The show at times reminds you of the 90's shows about high school and college that we used to watch.

  4. Stay at the swankiest of hotels, step out to visit just the strip clubs, have risqué wild nights and gamble through the night - if that is your idea of having a special getaway to Vegas, then it's as passé as Chow and his Wolfpack from 'The Hangover'. Travelling to Vegas is definitely any man's ultimate travel destination, but there is so much more to the city than what's portrayed by Hollywood. There is an array of exciting new activities that you and your buddies can enjoy at this little paradise. © Wiki Indulge in speed car racing, fitness hikes across the luxury resorts, zip line through the old streets, fly over the Grand Canyon and shop endlessly at the premium outlet malls; the city has so much more to offer, that it makes for an ideal getaway for a group of adventurous men. If you still think that what's a Vegas trip without a hand of Blackjack and a show of a pole dance, then fret not, as that needs no planning as almost every hotel has casinos, bars and nightclubs inside and gentlemen's clubs nearby. Just book yourself into one of the staggeringly huge resorts on the Vegas Strip and enjoy all the action. Nevertheless, here we have for you a complete 4-day boys trip to Las Vegas, minus the cliche, that you will never forget: © Caesers Entertainment Day 1: Kickstart with an (Indoor) hike, pose at tourist spots, hop from club to club This is the most unusual fitness activity one would ever attend, that too in Vegas: a hike at Aria Las Vegas Resort. Right about when you are wondering if it is like any other hike on a trail, you need to actually do this to figure out what makes it such a fun activity. The 60-minute hike takes you across the huge resort and the 'city centre'. Meet your guide at the Aria Spa, start with stretching exercises, admire the lovely artworks that greet you on the way, browse through shops, pace up and down the stairs, mix it with push-ups, sit-ups and step-ups to get a first-hand feel of the vibrant art and shopping scene – all this while being indoors. It is a great idea during the summer months, as Vegas can get rather hot. This will surely work up an appetite for you to explore one of the many amazing restaurants located inside Aria. © Seven Magic Mountains - Las Vegas After lunch, head out to enjoy the two outdoor wonders – the seven magic mountains and the iconic Las Vegas signage. The seven magic mountains are about a half hour drive from the strip located in the desert along the Interstate 15, and sure is a mesmerising work of art. There are seven stacks of brightly coloured boulders in different shades that light up the desert surroundings and makes for a perfect background for a group photograph. Follow this up with a visit to the popular Las Vegas signage, which is extremely popular with couples for their post-Vegas wedding photoshoots. After all, what's a visit without a typical touristy click, right? © Wiki Use the remaining of the day to stretch your legs at hotel bars and then pick a fancy restaurant or two for drinks and dinner. Just remember, Vegas has a brilliant food scene and the line-up of acclaimed restaurants in a short stretch of the Strip is any gourmand's dream. But one just cannot eat at all the best restaurants on one trip, obviously. So choose and book in advance, as most of the restaurants do not have last-minute availability, even on weekdays. For a magical night on the rocks, visit Omnia at Caesar's Palace. The interiors in Vegas are larger than life and Omnia is no different. The jaw-dropping spaceship shaped LED chandelier, performances by top DJs and a patio area offering amazing Vegas views will have you hooked. © Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour Picnic Breakfast - Las Vegas Day 2: Fly over the Grand Canyon in the day and party in the skies at night Rise early, beat the hangover and stand outside the hotel to be picked up for the Grand Canyon tour. There are multiple options but Papillon is one of the best, as you can see from their amazing reviews online. The airport is a half hour drive away in Boulder City. The helicopter ride itself takes you over some stunning natural wonders providing amazing aerial views of Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and the Grand Canyon. The icing on the cake is the landing at the bottom of the canyon in their private plateau along with refreshments. Exactly the kind of action boys love to boast and post! This is one heck of a popular activity and people book it months in advance. Once back in Vegas post this early morning activity, look for brunch options and enjoy the sights and sound of Vegas. Brunch is a supremely popular meal in Vegas, much more than breakfast. We're guessing people wake up late with a hangover and then get back to drunching (drinks + lunch) with endless bloody marys and mimosas. Follow it with a visit to premium outlet malls. These malls are what make the US a shopping heaven. Top brands at amazing discounts will urge and compel you to shop. It is an amazing space to stock up on your year's supply of sneakers, shirts, sweaters, bags, belts, denims and anything else you can think of. From high street to designer brands, there is something for everyone. You can spend an entire day here and yet feel you could have shopped more. © Caesers Entertainment Dump your shopping bags at your hotel, rest and rejuvenate as what awaits is the party in the sky. The High Roller Observation Wheel is your binge drinking session up there. Choose one of the 28 cabins that soar 550 feet above the ground and offer unmatched 360 degrees views of Vegas. Opt for the 'Open Bar in the Sky' option that gets you a cabin with a bar and bartender. Enjoy the party of a lifetime as the observation wheel lets you soak in Vegas. After such a high, you can call it a day. If you still feel night's young, then casinos and clubs are open 24x7. Walk down the strip to the stunning Bellagio Hotel to see the iconic musical fountains that have starred in almost every show or movie set in Vegas. The fountains start every 15 minutes till midnight and are quite stunning. Drop into Tao at The Venetian or Hyde at The Bellagio for an eclectic mix of music and partying. © Top Golf at MGM Grand Day 3: Start with a swing, head downtown, end on a high at Hell's Kitchen Start your day with Topgolf at MGM Grand. Even if you do not know a thing about the game, you would still love your time spent here. Book yourself a pool-side cabana and carry your swimsuit. Order your meal and drinks, swim and practice your swings. It is such a fun place to spend the day with your group of friends. But it's best to move on and explore the 'original' Vegas. The Vegas of today with glitzy bright signs, dazzling casinos and never-ending parties didn't start around the Strip area. The casinos were started by the mob in the 1940s and soon, they became the lifeline of the city. To best understand the history, head downtown and visit the Mob Museum. It is one of the most fun and interactive museums you would visit, as you literally walk down (from the third floor to the basement) the history of how organised crime came into existence, shaped the US and the city, and how it became the menace we know it is and lastly, how the city curbed it. Some fascinating gangster stories to be heard and videos to be seen here. © Freemont Street Experience After the museum, walk down to the nearby Fremont Street Experience. This was the original Vegas 'Strip' where it all started. While the action and tourist activity have shifted to the outskirt strip, the street still retains its buzz. Hop from bar to bar, grab a drink one place and a bite from some other, and just enjoy the charm of the place where the action started. There are numerous music consoles blaring out loud music and it feels like one big party. One of the fascinating new ways of exploring the area is the SlotZilla zipline action, where you get to breeze above the Fremont street seeing all the things on display from the top. Rather than the normal sitting position called the zipline, opt for the more popular zoomline where you get to fly across like a superhero. © Hell's Kitchen - Las Vegas After enjoying the gangster history of the city, the perfect place to head for dinner is at bad boy Gordon Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen. If you are lucky, you might bump into the man himself but otherwise do meet the current season's winner who heads the kitchen, Michelle Tribble. The restaurant is made just like the sets of Hell's Kitchen and you even get a drink with 'lovely' notes from Gordon. Then, of course, you can head out clubbing to XS at Wynn Encore which has crazy DJ lineups, incredible VIP area and Sunday night pool parties. © Dream Racing Day 4: Press the accelerator and live in the moment This is the last day of your trip and you better make it large. Start by heading to Dream Racing at the Las Vegas motor speedway. Choose from one of the largest selection of supercars such as Lamborghinis, Ferraris, McLarens, etc and take it out on a spin on the racetrack, like an actual race car driver. It is a thrilling ride as the trainer accompanying you, eggs you on to speed up sending the odometer crazy, brake suddenly, turn sharply or drift. This is not a commonplace joyride as you get to take some of the best beauties out for a drive. © The Spa at Encore - Las Vegas After this adrenaline rush, use the remainder of the day to walk down the strip exploring the various stunning properties, their bars and casinos. Your visit to Vegas will be incomplete without enjoying the larger-than-life properties, that are cities in themselves with over 4000 rooms, restaurants, bars, casinos, fitness centres, spas, shopping malls, pools and convention centres. Some of the most stunning ones include Caesar's Palace, Mandalay Bay, The Linq, Planet Hollywood, Aria, The Mirage, Treasure Island, The Venetian, The Cosmopolitan and, of course, the Bellagio. While in Vegas, opt for a relaxing massage at one of the swanky spas such as the Spa at Encore, which is stunning and has a whole list of services specially designed for men. © La Reve - The Dream performance at The Wynn - Las Vegas Post the massage, get ready to head to one of the musical shows by La Reve (at Wynn) or a Cirque Du Soleil. These shows define Las Vegas. A perfect mixture of music, light and sound, acrobatics, aerial and water choreography and costumes. A complete entertainment package and a must-attend. Post the musical, opt for Hakkasan at MGM Grand for the DJs and for multiple levels offering different experiences and Marquee at The Cosmopolitan for its wild party atmosphere for your last night out. © Reuters Definitely, the city is most famous for its casinos and staggeringly blinding lights. But it has evolved and today it is much more than just gambling. Don't join the 'regulars' and plan a cliched Vegas trip, instead, have a trip with your gang that you will remember for the rest of your life.
  5. A casual encounter with India transformed into a longlasting love affair for Gabriella Demetriades, who never imagined she would come to call the subcontinent her second home in the near future, since her first visit to the country in 2009. A South African model, she now has another title added to her crown, that of a designer and a successful entrepreneur whose designs have been sported by some of the leading names in the fashion and film industry. A beauty to behold, with sculpted features and green eyes gorgeous enough to leave you spellbound, she wears many hats, steals as many hearts and rocks at everything she decides to put her mind to. When It All Began © Facebook Having been to India once before, Demetriades found herself back in the hustling 'n' bustling country in 2011 for a modelling contract that spanned over three months. However, we must tell you and perhaps also refresh your memory as to where else you might have spotted this beauty before. She first came into the limelight when she auditioned for Miss IPL Bollywood in 2009. She also happens to be one of the contenders for FHM magazine's '100 Sexiest Women In The World'. Having been the face of Deccan Chargers as well as also having been a Miss IPL Bollywood representative, she caught the eyes of spectators who then chose her to represent Kolkata Knight Riders. Thus began her ride to glory. Not All That's Rosy, Is Pretty © Facebook Like every big name in the making, Demetriades had her share of hiccups and the most memorable one has to be when she made national news back in 2010. She found herself amidst a tiff between businessman Lalit Modi and Congress leader Shashi Tharoor over certain disagreements involving the model's visa, which made Gabriella find her way to the headlines. The episode left her parents worried but the former model claims that she didn't feel scandalised even for a moment. Whatever the actual cause, we presume it did some good to her career in terms of publicity and recognition. The High Life © Facebook Cut to 2016 when the model donned the hat of a designer and launched her own clothing label 'DEME'. With some of the prominent industry bigwigs attending her store launch in Bandra, Mumbai her entrepreneurial journey got a kickass start. Ever since a number of celebrities and leading models have stepped out in her designs that are a mix of edgy and soft, flowy silhouettes which complement any and every woman of style out there. day to night looks from our new capsule â¤ï¸ #deme #demegirls #demelove @diva.dhawan @gabriellademetriades A post shared by Deme_Love (@deme_love_) on Jul 31, 2018 at 9:38am PDT Stealing Hearts And Bringing Up The Temperature © Facebook Now, while she has turned into a businesswoman for the past two years, she hasn't ignored her talents as a gorgeous model and is often seen updating her Instagram account with photographs from various shoots and outings. Her feed screams “sexy” and “oomph” and one can always spot a great number of men (and women) fawning over her beauty and charm. With every post, she sends her followers into a tizzy and the paparazzi into a shutter frenzy, because no matter the time or occasion, every appearance she makes turns up the heat by a few degrees. People have and continue to take notice of this beauty, who now calls this country her home and plans to continue to explore, expand and do what she is best at. Take a look at a few of her posts on Instagram to be sure of our claims and add to your list of divas to 'Follow' on insta. ð± A post shared by Gabriella Demetriades (@gabriellademetriades) on Feb 6, 2018 at 9:03pm PST Swamp thing @martinoprihoda #demelove A post shared by Gabriella Demetriades (@gabriellademetriades) on Oct 24, 2017 at 8:47pm PDT A post shared by Gabriella Demetriades (@gabriellademetriades) on Dec 22, 2017 at 12:00am PST all ya need is ... @taras84 A post shared by Gabriella Demetriades (@gabriellademetriades) on Jul 2, 2018 at 9:22pm PDT got something on my face @taras84 A post shared by Gabriella Demetriades (@gabriellademetriades) on May 17, 2018 at 6:46am PDT slip @rahuljhangiani A post shared by Gabriella Demetriades (@gabriellademetriades) on Jun 13, 2018 at 8:54pm PDT jaw game strong A post shared by Gabriella Demetriades (@gabriellademetriades) on Jul 24, 2018 at 11:42pm PDT A post shared by Gabriella Demetriades (@gabriellademetriades) on Jan 23, 2018 at 9:36am PST
  6. The cryptocurrency craze was at its all-time high last year, as people were highly optimistic and the sudden demand made currencies like Bitcoin soar higher than ever. The timing was everything. In November 2016, India implemented demonetisation of the Rupee and the following months were harrowing for those with a huge pile of black money. Money laundering is a very old concept, every time any authority brings in a new law to curb it, the process changes. While many were fine with giving away a huge chunk in 'commission' for converting the black money to white, a new scheme was in town that promised to take your black money, pay you interest on that sum and ultimately improve your returns exponentially, thanks to the cryptocurrency boom. © Reuters One such scheme was run by BitConnect, a cryptocurrency firm that was being promoted in Gujarat by a man called Satish Kumbhani. The company promised to offer 1 per cent interest daily on Bitcoins and double its valuation within 100 days. Trading in cryptocurrency was still legally a grey area, there were no definite laws to regulate it. BitConnect lured many rich investors from all parts of India and carried out the transactions without any proper documentation. These transactions remained anonymous and were a perfect safe haven for laundering as well as earning out of your untaxed money. © Pexels The process was simple. You deposit your bitcoin with BitConnect and receive BitConnect (BCC) coins in return. Then you earn interest rates on their funds, which could sometimes be more than 40 per cent per month. BitConnect's plan was to slowly increase the demand for its BCC currency, this way its value would also increase. And to lure in more people, the interest scheme was set up. This setup ensured that BCC's value kept on increasing and coins bought at US$ 50-100, became worth US$ 362 in a year. © Google Trends on Black Money Searches in India All the uptrend came to a screeching halt when the company's operation was kept on hold by the securities boards of Texas and North Carolina, USA. BCC crashed to a meagre US$ 2 overnight and it currently trades for just US$ 0.5. A perfect Ponzi scheme, BitConnect collected Bitcoins that were globally valued, and in return gave their own so-called currency, that has no backing. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has practically banned all virtual crypto-based transactions in the country. Google searches about black money, laundering, and tax evasion spiked massively after November 2016 and in a bid to find a safe route for their possessions, investors blindly fell into such traps.

  7. At the time, when India's tour of England was announced, no one was really interested in questioning the abilities of Virat Kohli's men in the three-match T20 and ODI series. For many, it wasn't really a challenge for a strong limited-overs side like India. The only question lingering around was: can India survive the English conditions and the seam-bowling threat posed by their opponents in the five-match Test series? We inched closer to the answer during the first Test at Edgbaston, where a stronger-than-ever India almost came close to arguably their best start to the Test series in England. The questions over Kohli's form in English conditions were laid to rest by the Indian captain through brilliant performances - 149 & 51 - in the two innings. And, the likes of Ishant Sharma (6-97) and Ravichandran Ashwin (7-121) proving their mettle. was a great sight for the Indian fans. © Reuters And, even if India ended up losing the first Test by just 31 runs, their overall performance seemed satisfactory (if not impressive). The batting woes were always there, but the Indian side looked up to the task and the fans thought that this might just be the series where they can bury the skeletons of their infamous 2014 tour. But, the fruition of a dream into reality is a process that doesn't happen overnight. As it turned out, Lord's - a stadium that is usually deemed lucky for India - witnessed one of the most shambolic and toothless performances by a team, which is currently ranked the world's no. 1 Test side. The Indian captain missed the trick by picking two specialist spinners on a track that was conducive to seam bowling. But, it was the lack of fight and character in their performance that left the Indian supporters shell-shocked. © Reuters Facing a fire-breathing James Anderson in overcast conditions, the Indian batting order fell like a pack of cards - eventually bowled out for 107 runs in the first innings. With both their spinners Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav going wicketless and the likes of Mohammed Shami, Hardik Pandya and Ishant rarely threatening the opposition batsmen, England romped to 396/7 - thanks to a surprising Chris Woakes hundred - before declaring their innings. Very poor from India. While we all want to stand by our team and support them when they don't do well, going down without a fight is very disappointing to watch. Hope they have the confidence and mental strength to comeback from this. — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) August 12, 2018 Desperate to right their wrong in the second innings, the Indian batsmen once again failed to negate England's seam-bowling attack before getting bowled out at 130 and, in the process, enduring a shameful defeat of the size of an innings and 159 runs. The Indian batting performance was so poor, it beggared belief. And, the fact that Ashwin emerged as the top scorer for his team with 62 runs (in two innings), pretty much sums up the story for India. Caught in unfavourable conditions, not reading what the opposition threw saw India lose the Lord's Test tamely without showing a fight. Hopefully lessons are learnt quickly and the rest of the batsman start applying themselves going forward. — VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) August 13, 2018 Kohli, during his post-match press conference, didn't mince words while claiming that they didn't deserve to win owing to their performance. It's not hard to guess the mood back in India where fans, pundits and even former cricketers have united to condemn the team's fiasco at the hallowed Lord's. Lack of fight has been the most disappointing aspect. This is really painful to watch. No batsman exudes any confidence. #ENGvIND — Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) August 12, 2018 While some blamed Kohli's team selection, others came down hard on the misfiring Indian batting order. Team India's debacle in the second Test also fuelled a scathing attack on head coach Ravi Shastri, whose appointment was once again questioned by the fans on the social media. Ravi Shastri has no qualifications as a coach.Lost South Africa and about to loose England Test Series. Kohli with his ego kicked Kumble who is well respected and a winning champion for India. The entire team surrendered themselves to England . What a shame!!!! — Srinivasa Pokala (@santoshipokala1) August 13, 2018 Dear @imVkohli Kindly note that consistent defeat of #Team_India abroad in test matches will continue till your fvr8 #Ravi_Shastri is coach and u don't apologize to @anilkumble1074 sir. #INDvENG — Randheer Jha (@randheer) August 13, 2018 If Ravi shastri had his share of fun , plz start looking at world no.1 batting as England no.7 can hit century, but our star batting lineup couldn't .@RaviShastriOfc @BCCI — Ashish Kumar Singh (@Ashishorbit) August 13, 2018 Ravi Shastri as Coach is More Dangerous than Greg Chappel For Indian Cricket.@RaviShastriOfc — विиαÑ à¤¶à¥Ðºâα (@Vinayrv00) August 13, 2018 Great batsman doesn't necessarily mean good leaders. Likewise Virat Kohli, failed completely as a captain in this test series. And Ravi Shastri, the less we say, the better. #INDvsENG #Virat #Shastri — Pratibha Mehra (@Irfanomania) August 13, 2018 If Anyone Is Sacked From This Indian Team, It Must Begin With Coach Ravi Shastri. We Miss You Anil Kumble. #INDvsENG #INDvENG #ENGvIND — Sir Ravindra Jadeja (@SirJadeja) August 12, 2018 we are poor travellers, we cant play the swinging ball; Ravi Shastri was booed always and still is the Indian coach; we can only play on dusty bowls; shameful; even Sri Lanka and Pakistan win away tests; Anderson and Broad can be bowling coaches for India after their retirement; — risri vish (@srivicky46) August 13, 2018 They needed a knock on the Head... Getting two cosy and over-confident... Sack Ravi Shastri as the Coach and get someone professional and not a gas bag... — gopi menon (@gopsmenon_7) August 13, 2018 #RaviShastri तà¥à¤®à¤¸à¥ ना हॠपाà¤à¤à¤¾ — Sunil (@Sunil69205318) August 13, 2018 Shastri, who was India's Team Director from August 2014 to April 2016, was appointed as the head coach of the men's national team after one of the biggest controversies in Indian cricket last year. Despite a fairly successful tenure as coach, former Indian spinner Anil Kumble resigned from the position owing to an alleged fallout with captain Kohli. After a series of interviews involving foreign and domestic candidates, Shastri - heavily backed by Kohli - was eventually announced as Kumble's successor.
  8. Thanks to global style kings (+ trends like normcore and laziness), there's now a sudden insurgence of loungewear in public. It's now publicly acceptable to creep what you wear to bed into your outside world-style, without having the fashion-backward folk judging you. It's a great time to be alive, we'd say! Following the exact same spirit, a lot of famous Indian men like Kartik Aaryan, Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan are already slipping into track pants for their snooze fest and right after waking up, stepping out without a wardrobe change. That's just how they've now started to live their lives. For Varun Dhawan however, it's more about breaking away from just wearing track pants; he wants to wear some dope track pants instead (that one would actually be proud of flaunting in public). So, at the trailer launch of 'Sui Dhaaga', the multi-gunned man did exactly that: © Viral Bhayani First off, let's mention, that track pants happen to be really slimming for anyone they're put in touch with. Plus, you don't even need to pair them with flip-flops or any kind of open footwear, you can turn to clunky, dad-like shoes instead, like the Balenciaga Triple S' Varun Dhawan has opted for here: © Viral Bhayani And now, let's break this pair of track pants down here. Factually, these belong to the brand 'Palm Angels', a brand that offers a dose of American style with graphics and playfulness of the global streets, like Varun Dhawan's Rainbow track pants here, that are made of 100% polyester. It's a mid-rise pair, with ribbed knits around the collar, cuffs and hem, zipper in the front, zippered pockets on the side and printed logo right in the front. © Palm Angels The pair retails at a cost of $68, that's approximately Rs. 4,700. Not a whopping price, eh? But while that's just the MRP of the piece, the real result of wearing the piece lies in looking like a capital-F loungewear hero. Having said that, while Dhawan has styled the piece with a lot of corresponding star-attractions in the ensemble — the Triple S sneakers, printed bomber jacket (also from Palm Angels)— you don't need to. Besides the track pants, you can keep the rest of the separates minimal and neutral, to ensure the rainbow trim of your bottoms stands out. © Viral Bhayani Takeaway: if you're looking for your next outfit-inspo, in all probability — you're already wearing it in bed. Else, log onto your Instagram, stalk The Vainglorious (celebrity stylists- including Varun's), because that's where terrific fashion happens first.

  10. While technically you can use your beard trimmer to shave you body hair as well - do you really want to do that? Just think about it for a second. Firstly, would you want to use the same trimmer for your beard (and on your face!) that you'll be using on other (less hygienic) parts of your body?

  11. The world is aware of the fact that our Indian soldiers are known for their bravery, fearlessness, courage and selflessness. Honestly, no amount of words can express our gratitude towards them, for putting their lives in danger to protect us from external threats. But, on days when they are not risking their lives to protect us, they are just like any one of us, who love singing and dancing. Watching them showcase their skills is a treat for us indeed. Wikimedia (For Representation) Recently, we came across a dance video of an Indian soldier, which is now going viral and it speaks volumes about his exceptional talent and amazing dance moves. In fact, this jawan's hip-hop moves are so good, he can give most of our Bollywood actors a run for their money. As he danced to the beats of a popular song from the movie 'Aloo Chaat', his fellow soldiers were seen cheering for him and so will you, once you start watching the video.
  12. What is a super soldier? The usual answer would be: the one who is equipped with top-notch weaponry and possesses absolute man-to-man combat skills. Well, that is true but if you nosedive into the philosophy of creating a super soldier, things move beyond the understanding of many. The talk about a super solider should start with a very basic question: how strong is he? Strip him off his weapons and put him in a hostile zone, what is he left with to survive? Well, that would be his strength to kill with bare hands. Wars know no rules. Kill before you get killed. Close quarter man-to-man battles are ugly. Before you can reach for your gun tucked in a holster, you can have your throat stabbed. Here's where strength to kill with 'bare hands' comes in. So, what do we do to make the strong even stronger? The answer is simple: put the Indian Army soldiers on Anabolic steroids. Duplicating The Hollywood Fantasies © Facebook, Yudh Abhyas Know Captain America? Steve Rogers, the snail-sized soldier was put into a casket and came out as an invincible super strong, bullet-crunching-alien-killing super soldier. While the armies around the world have toyed around with the idea of developing sci-fi weaponry, nothing much has been done on the genetic or chemical enhancement front. Rumors have it that Nazi juiced the SS but there's no proof to solidify those claims. So has any Army done it yet? Read on. You will be surprised. The Australian Experiment 1998 © Facebook, Yudh Abhyas In 1998, the Australian authorities discovered that a lot of their soldiers in their Elite Forces were using Anabolic Steroids. Instead of taking stringent action against this, the authorities embraced the fact. Their ideology was- 'if anything increases the survival rate of our soldiers, it is OK!' The authorities even laid out certain guidelines for use of steroids in the military. Somehow the press (Sydney Morning) got hold of this idea and created a public panic. Eventually, the program got terminated and steroids were pulled away from military usage. The below mentioned article links are from the Sydney Morning Herald, dated 2010, and talk about Australian soldiers using performance enhancing steroids. All the links are forbidden and it's not hard to guess why. https://www.smh.com.au/world/three-soldiers-on-steroids-given-marching-orders-20101115-17udz.html https://www.smh.com.au/world/steroidabusing-australian-soldiers-sent-home-in-disgrace-20100607-xquy.html US Military Health Editorial 2016 © Facebook, Yudh Abhyas The US Military is also exploring the advantages of chemically enhancing their soldiers. The researchers at the 2016 Consortium of Health and Military Performance symposium suggested 5 primary agendas the Military must consider. Astonishingly, one of these was the further exploration of steroid use, including the costs and benefits. The interest aroused from an anonymous survey in the US Army Rangers which found out that 1/4th of soldiers had taken Anabolics or some form of performance-enhancing drug. The authors of the editorial, Lt. Col Chad Peltier and Kyle Pettijohn, PhD, did mention the pros of anabolic steroids and how it can enhance the performance of their men the Special Forces. But they also gave a final statement which gives a subtle hint that use of Anabolic Steroids can be justified in the military. How Will The Soldiers Benefit? 1) Enhanced Stamina = Increased Survival Rate Steroids tend to increase the red blood cell concentrations (oxygen-carrying capacity). Thus, boosts energy and sense of well-being. It also supports the retention of lean body mass, and improves muscle strength and most importantly, endurance. For the surgical strikes against Pakistan in response to the Uri Attacks our soldiers had to trek around 50 Km (one side) into the enemy territory. Once the operation was executed, our soldiers had to break out through the enemy zone in minimum time. Now these men already have remarkable stamina. But what if this could be made better and pushed to a superhuman level. It would only increase the survival rate of our men. Note - Unlike steroid abuse (which most bodybuilders do), controlled hormone therapy may have benefits with regard to cardiovascular health. For example, studies tend to show hormone replacement as having a positive effect on serum lipids which includes a reduction in LDL and total cholesterol levels, combined with no significant change in HDL (good) cholesterol levels. 2) Increased Muscle Mass = Increased Strength Levels This is perhaps the most evident benefit of steroids, due to which many strength athletes have been accused of administering it: superior strength levels. You might wonder that if our soldier doesn't have to squat 250Kg in a battlefield, then why do they need high levels of strength? Well, on an average a soldier would be carrying a backpack weighing anywhere between 30 and 65Kg. The load can increase during special operations. If our men have greater strength to carry the load, they can be equipped with more ammunition, inevitably making them more lethal. “To observe the above performance enhancements, super high bodybuilding dosages need not be administered. Such high dosages will undeniably do more harm than good.” Non-Steroid Substances For Increased Alertness & Concentration © Facebook, Yudh Abhyas Staying mentally alert is extremely important for any soldier. Often, our soldiers operate for extended hours with little to no sleep. Lack of sleep can decline cognitive functioning which can be a matter of life and death. There are FDA-approved drugs which stimulate the central nervous system safely and effectively. Drug M (name not disclosed for safety reasons) has been shown to successfully help in the treatment of many mental disorders. It belongs to eugeroics ('good arousal'), designed to promote a mental state of vigilance and alertness. One advantage of this drug is that it has much lower potential for abuse due to the fact that it produces a lower sense of euphoria. The U.S. military is quite interested in this drug, for enhancing energy levels of pilots and combat soldiers that need to operate for long periods of time without sleep. Soldiers on drug M have reported maintaining excellent cognitive functioning for up to 40 hours without sleep, and have fewer side effects. “Indian Air Force: The Go-No-Go Pill Test Use of anabolic steroids is rampant in defence forces around the world and it is a well-planned initiative. Imitating such initiatives, the Indian Defence Forces also have been experimenting on their soldiers. For example- the famous 'Go-no-go' pills were tested on pilots while I was serving in the IAF. These are being used by pilots to combat fatigue and heighten alertness during combat. First time it was used in the Exercise LiveWire, says report from Times of India Feb 08 report. Handling highly stressful situations becomes more difficult when sleep-deprivation and fatigue come into play, and can negatively affect decision-making ability. After the adrenaline-rush of the Go Pill, the No-Go Pill is used to offset its effect in order to rest before the next mission. - Akshay Chopra, Ex Indian Air Force Pilot And Fitness Professional” What Is The Future? The worst outcome in a battlefield is death. Everything else (including side effects of the drugs) can be dealt with later once our soldier survives the extremes. There are 1.4 million active soldiers serving in the Indian army; putting all of them on some form of drugs does not make any sense. But the ones involved in special operations and guarding the sensitive areas (LOC in Siachen, Jungles in the Northeast) can definitely benefit from this. So, the question is not whether the Indian defence forces will use performance enhancing substances on the soldiers, because the answer, invariably, would always be no. The question is whether we are ready to raise a crop of front line soldiers who are enhanced beyond their natural genetic capacities? © Facebook, Yudh Abhyas
  13. If you're 30 something and still single, then there is nothing wrong with you. You're having fun and living life totally on your terms and playing the perfect bachelor. 30-year-old men have probably been there and done it all and aren't afraid to talk about it. If you're in your 30s and living the single life, you know exactly what I am talking about. Either you've given up on your search for the perfect life partner or you're just really enjoying the bachelor life, or you're still looking to settle down. Whichever one you are, you're one quirky lad with a lot on your plate. © Facebook/Vicky KAushal Here are some common 30-something type of men. Which one do you most identify yourself with? The Man Who's A Total Package He's Mr. have it all, because he does have it all- looks, a good career, money and a good education. He's probably a corporate slave working with a really good company and is an avid traveller and probably plays an instrument in his free time. He knows how to make good conversation and deep inside, he knows he's a good packaged deal and that any woman would be lucky to have him. There is one thing though- the good packaged man always has trouble finding the right woman who is the right match, worthy of his greatness! © Pexels He definitely wants to settle down and make babies with someone but his solemn vow to never settle for less, always gets in his way and that defines him in his 30s. He's always looking for someone who is perfect in her own ways. A good looking charming girl, who is liked by everyone and is successful in her career. So, finding the right girl is always a challenge for him along with his existential fear of reaching the dreaded 40s, single! The Man Who Is Fiercely Turning Down Arranged Marriages By His Parents Yup, you lot do exist and love your life just as much as the guy above. It's just that your parents don't really love your singlehood as much and are bound to get you married by hook or by crook. At least they're trying really hard. You're game for dating casually and honestly think there is a lot of time for you to get married or that marriage really isn't a big deal. You meet a lot of women through your parents discretion of setting you up with single girls, and you find your way out each time. The thing is, you're not ready to settle down yet and you probably want to find a mate yourself. Your mantra is to live in your 30s and probably die with added responsibilities when you reach your 40s. The Man Who Just Got Out Of A Long-Term Relationship This man has been dating for a long time and for a long time, he's seemed unhappy in his relationship and one day, he's braved the move of getting out of the unhappy relationship he's in and now, he's suddenly single and the world is his happy place, again. The not-so-happy boyfriend is a very happy single man now and he acts like Amitabh Bachchan just called his name out on 'Kaun Banega Crorepati', all the time. He goes out every night to meet probable singles and doesn't want to be tied down to anyone. At least not right now! His arch nemesis is the unhappy fiancé stuck in a dead-end unhappy relationship, who certainly does not want to hear about the unhappy turned happy single dude because he can't do anything about his sordid state of affairs! Think you're one of these 'I found new love for life' kinda guys? The Man Who Keeps Count This breed of 30-something men are quite common and they're single for a reason- to get as many women in bed as they can. Heck, I used to be one too, till I realised, no one really cares and that I feel dead inside now. This man doesn't know a thing about the opposite gender except the number of chicks he has banged till date and kept count. He comes off as a misogynist most days and loves his *** life like no other. He started young and decided this road is way too fun to settle down in the near future and now he just sleeps with most women that come his way. When he was younger, 20-something women who were going through their 'asshole phase' used to come easy his way. But now, in his 30s, the women with lowered self esteem always gravitate towards him so that they can be made to feel good about themselves. Although this banger phase is way too temporary, it will take him some time to realise that. PS: I didn't mean to call you lot an asshole. The Man Who Turned Bitter Women aren't the only creatures that turn bitter in their 30s, after some toxic dating experiences. Well, don't get me wrong, most of them don't, but some of them certainly do. Men turn bitter too and they're a lot worse, trust me. This man has probably faced a barrage of bad experiences and now he's living them all in his 30s by just being grumpy, excessively choosy and aggressive. Men who turn bitter are very vocal about their rage and their attitude is somewhat similar to 'it's my way or the highway'. This happens mostly because you've almost settled in your ways in your 30s and after a bunch of bad experiences, you really don't want to give a shit anymore. He's living in cynicism most days and might need some soul searching or help with his mental wellbeing. The Man Who Thinks His Time Is Running Out Women aren't the only ones with a ticking body clock, men have them too apparently and it's not biological, it's just a rush of a lot of daddy genes, is all. This man is probably looking to get married right away, just so he can be a father. If you have a friend who is always giving you fatherly advice at the drop of a hat, and he's single and in his 30s, he's actually looking for a girl to have babies with. He's not looking for a hot runway model as much as he's looking for a motherly figure with nurturing traits to be his mate, who can take care of all the babies he wants to have. His humour is like all the dad jokes you can read on the internet and he can get really really intense. If you know him, please get him married already. The Closeted Man This guy is perfect for any woman there. He's smart, handsome, grooms well, has an awesome sense of style and his humour is top notch but he's not interested in women and he is definitely not too open about it, because-society. So, he plays along, being heterosexual, whenever he can, to confuse the opposite gender, as much as he can. I am sure you have a guy at work, you seldom wonder if he's gay but then he does something so hetro, you're like 'nah bro'. But in reality he's actually gay. Yeah, he's single at 30, because- society. He's secretly in a relationship though or banging lots of men on the side, and Grinder is his forever home. So, if you so identify with any of these men, you'd know why are you're still single in your 30s and if you're really enjoying your 30s right now, there is really nothing to fret about. After all, age is just a number, right?
  14. Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone don't really need any help to individually claim the top spots in men's and women's fashion in India respectively. But, just like it works in the movies they work in, they decided to get together, and now, are the ultimate power couple in terms of fashion (among other things - which we shall talk about later, sometime). Their latest appearance in the airport, hand in hand, marked 2018's most powerful, not to mention, heartwarming, fashion (or shall we call it 'filmy'?) moment in Bollywood. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Here are 4 things about their outfits that establish them as Bollywood's, or rather, Indian fashion's ultimate power couple. 1. Ranveer Singh's white Gucci Print leather belt bag, which purely in terms of technicality classifies as a women's bag (but it's 2018 and no one cares), once again proves that he's the king of accessories. The bag in white leather is adorned with prints from the eighties, and boasts of fine Italian craftsmanship. If this doesn't bring back fanny packs, nothing will. © Viral Bhayani 2. The coordinated, yet independently awesome choice of Athleisure shows that they exactly know how functional fashion works. What they are wearing is extremely comfortable, travel friendly, and complement each other outfits without looking tacky in the least. 'Couple goals' goals. © Viral Bhayani 3. How Ranveer tells so much with his clothes without verbally having to say anything is a lesson in itself. Look at how he so nonchalantly is letting us know about his favourite TV show using the baseball cap he's wearing. © Viral Bhayani 4. Did you notice how their shoe game and accessory game absolutely are on point? When it comes to shoes, Ranveer and Deepika are wearing Adidas and Nike respectively, in white and black, that is giving out the whole Yin and Yang vibe, brilliantly so. When it comes to accessories, both of them embraced the glam edge with their metallic watches and statement sunnies. © Viral Bhayani All we can do at this point is just bow down. Bravo!
  15. Akshay Venkatesh is a well known and widely respected name in the world of mathematics. This year, he has been felicitated with the 'Fields Medal', also widely known as the Nobel Prize for Maths. While it's true that one is known for his success and accolades, we can't forget that behind every successful man, there is a tale of struggle that led him to this path. © Twitter Akshay's journey from a child prodigy to becoming a famous Mathematician began in New Delhi, where he was born. He moved to Perth, Australia with his family when he was just 2-years-old and was constantly winning all the Mathematics and Physics Olympiads, even when he was only 11. He managed to finish high school at the age of 13 and went on to become a graduate at the age of 16. While we were busy idolising Ranbir Kapoor's character in 'Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani' when we were 20-years-old, Akshay had already earned his PhD! © Twitter He went on to do his postdoctoral research at the prestigious MIT, became a Clay Research Fellow and eventually became a professor at Stanford University. His contribution to the number theory, arithmetic geometry, topology, automorphic forms and ergodic theory is widely recognised. Besides Akshay Venkatesh, Caucher Birkar, a professor of Cambridge University, Peter Scholze of University Of Bonn and Allesio Figalli, an Italian mathematician have also been awarded the 'Fields Medal'. The 'Fields Medal' is awarded to mathematicians under the age of 40 and was inaugurated by John Charles Field, a Canadian mathematician who ran the Mathematics Congress back in 1924. The recipients receive an award of 15,000 Canadian dollars for the same.
  16. If we were to go by Merriam-Webster's definition of the word 'grooming', it basically means one basic thing - to make oneself (or someone else!) neat and more attractive. Now most men understand this well enough and don't hold back vis-a-vis investing in grooming essentials. But I've noticed a trend lately where, when it comes to facial hair, most men have decided to either not prioritize or outright ignore its grooming. This becomes even more puzzling when, in most cases, it's a man's beard game that actually helps him leave a lasting impression on his dates. So to help our bros take their beard and mooch game to the next level, here are five grooming tips for facial hair that all Indian men should follow . 1) Invest In A Quality Trimmer © Official Instagram/Virat Kohli Seriously guys, it's not that hard to do this. When looking for the best trimmers for Indian men, there are four major factors that you should keep in mind - the brand you are opting for (Philips trimmers always make for a great option), whether you want a wired or wireless trimmer, the type of beard you are growing (is it a stubble or a proper mane?) and what's the budget that you're working with. Following these tips will help you make an informed choice and invest in a quality beard trimmer that will certainly upgrade your grooming game. 2) Hair Growth Oils Are Your Friend - Use Them Wisely © Official Instagram/Ranveer Singh There is nothing wrong in wanting to grow your beard - as long as you do it the right way. Some of the best oils for hair growth out there can end up being of great use in this regard, so long as you use them wisely. So make some room in your grooming regimen for beard growth oils and you'll be good to go. Additionally, you can also opt for beard and moustache waxes that will help groom your facial hair. Pro tip: Beardo and Mamaearth come out with premium hair growth oils that you could opt for. 3) Don't Follow The Crowd, Cultivate Your Own Sense Of Style © Official Instagram/Sidharth Malhotra Sheep follow the crowd, men walk their own path. That mind sound a bit cliched, but it's actually pretty relevant when it comes to grooming your facial hair. Blindly following your favourite celebrity and basing your beard on their beard doesn't work because - a) your face shape may differ from theirs, and b) the way your beard grows out may differ as well. As such, you should cultivate your own sense of style and grow your beard keeping in mind your facial shape and comfort. 4) Wash Your Beard Regularly And Choose Your Face Wash Wisely © Pexels People often forget about the damage using a substandard face wash could cause to their beard and mooch. As such, choosing a premium and A-grade face wash, depending on your skin type and the length of your facial hair, becomes essential. For instance, you should look for face washes for dry skin (if that is your skin type) that don't contain any such ingredients that could be harmful for your facial hair. Additionally, you should also make it a habit of washing your face at least three to four times a day, so as to always keep your beard clean. Pro tip: Garnier and Himalaya face washes are highly recommended. 5) Finally, Know When To Trim It © Official Instagram/Tom Hardy There is nothing wrong with growing a beard, as long as you know when it's the right time to trim it. If your beard is growing unevenly (which is more common that you'd like to believe), or if its not suiting your face shape, then that's a sign for you to use a trimmer.
  17. Pimples, acne-breakouts, oiliness on your skin - these are common problems that most Indian men have to constantly deal with.

  18. Over the time, Sushant Singh Rajput has made his own space in B-town. Coming from the small screen and making it big in tinsel town is certainly no walk in the park. Call it sheer luck or pure hard work, the man is here to stay. © Twitter His journey began in 2013 with 'Kai Po Che', a brilliant movie that did wonders to his career, as the actor won many hearts and shot into the spotlight. Watching him as 'Detective Byomkesh Bakshy' left many impressed as well, as it was an out-of-the-box character, that not many could have essayed so well. And then came the blockbuster biopic 'MS Dhoni: The Untold Story'. Loved by everyone, especially Dhoni fans, the movie achieved heights of success like no one could have imagined. Overnight, Singh became a household name and from that point on, there was certainly no looking back for him. © Twitter Sushant has various projects in his kitty and has signed a new one recently, which has his fans all excited. The actor will soon star in a 12-part biopic series, and every episode will unfold the story of an inspiring Indian genius. From Chanakya, Rabindranath Tagore to APJ Abdul Kalam, the yet-to-be-titled series will start from 540 BC to 2015 AD, spanning 2000 years. The viewers will witness the phenomenal saga of heroes who changed India and contributed to the history of the nation in the most unimaginable way. © Twitter It is interesting to see how the history of India, has all of a sudden, begun to form as the premise for many projects within the entertainment industry. Recently, even Ajay Devgn announced that he will be playing Chanakya in Neeraj Pandey's upcoming film. It will be interesting to see who nails the essence of Chanakya better, Ajay or Sushant? © Twitter “We are excited to bring to the audience a new series presenting the most magnificent stories of India. These 12 geniuses have made a paramount contribution in forming the India that we live in today. Sushant has always been extremely passionate about learning new things and following the philosophies of these people, hence, he decided to bring them to life on screen,” said Varun Mathur, Founding Partner, Innsaei Ventures. With 12 challenging roles to play, we wonder if Sushant is the right pick after all, or would it have been more prudent to have 12 different actors playing these powerful characters? All we can do for now is wait, before forming any assumptions of our own.

  20. Inarguably one of the most popular and consistent batsmen in the modern era, Virat Kohli continues to rule the batting charts on the back of memorable performances in all three formats of the game. His artistry with the willow has made him a vital cog in the Indian batting line-up and often leaves the opposition bowlers scratching their head. But, despite all his records and batting prowess, Kohli, now, faces the formidable test of proving his worth in the English conditions. The Indian skipper will be eager to right the wrongs of the 2014 tour where he managed to score just 134 runs at an average of 13.50 across 10 innings in Tests. © Reuters If Kohli is looking to bury the demons of his last outing in England this time around, the Englishmen are busy devising cunning plans and tactics to ensure that the Delhi-born cricketer suffers the same fate in the upcoming five-match Test series. Stuart Broad, who will be one of the key bowlers alongside James Anderson for England, has revealed that the hosts have plans to halt Team India's talisman Kohli. "I really don't agree with the theory that one particular bowler can target a world-class batsman," Broad was quoted as saying by the International Cricket Council (ICC) website. "You have to have that pressure and theatre at both ends against that sort of quality - that's when you get mistakes. If he's able to really watch Jimmy (Anderson) and play carefully but score off me, you're taking away any advantage as a team. As a bowling unit, we will just have to make it as hard for all of their batsmen to score early runs, but particularly a key player like Virat. We have to try and create pressure that way," he added. © Reuters Broad is returning to action after recovering from an ankle injury. His ability to use the conditions well and provide crucial breakthroughs to his side will be key to England's success in the much-anticipated Test series. On the other hand, Broad's bowling partner Anderson, who had Kohli's number in the 2014 tour, will also be expected to deliver the goods in the conditions favourable to swing and seam bowlers. For the sake of Indian fans, let's hope that our country's run-machine Kohli answers the England bowlers and critics with a fine outing when India lock horns with the Englishmen in the first Test slated to begin from 1st August at Edgbaston.
  21. You can trust our Indian prodigies to shine brighter than a diamond, no matter wherever they go. Tanishq Abraham is only 15 years old but is already an engineer! Tanishq has graduated from the University of California, Davis with the highest honours of summa cum laude. At the age of 11, he had already graduated from a community college and is now a biomedical engineer. © Facebook What made the achievement even more special is the fact that Tanishq got the degree on Father's Day. “It was the best Father's Day gift for my husband and also my dad," says Tanishq's mother Taji Abraham. "We are happy that his grandparents who are heart patients (both retired veterinary medical PhD doctors) were able to see him graduate with a biomedical engineering degree and start his PhD in the same field. He was enrolled in the American River Community College after, at the age of five, he had cracked math courses offered by Stanford University's Education Program for Gifted Youth (EPGY) in less than six months. At six, he took online high school and college level classes in subjects such as chemistry, paleontology, biology, and geology, and at seven, completed courses in Geology & Astronomy, emerging as the top student in both classes.” © Facebook © Facebook Currently, Tanishq has been accepted into the UC Davis graduate program where he is going to pursue his MD now, after which he plans on continuing his education and getting a PhD. Way to go, Superman!
  22. Arjun Tendulkar is not the only son of a legendary cricketer out there, all prepared to match up to his father's legacy. The Junior 'Wall' is just 12-years-old right now, but he's already telling the world that he's going to be a force to be reckoned with in the cricketing arena. Samit Dravid is the eldest son of Indian icon Rahul Dravid, someone who honestly doesn't need any introduction. Dravid Jr. is playing for his school team at the moment (obviously, since he's 12) and has been giving one impressive performance after another. Twitter In this particular match, along with an unbeaten 51 knock, he also bagged 3 wickets while only giving 9 runs. Of course, this led to his school, Mallya Aditi International School, to a nine-wicket victory against the Cambridge Public School. I'll admit that I don't know much about cricket, but even I can understand that this is quite impressive. This isn't even the first time Samit has made people sit up and take notice of his performance; back in January, he scored a match-winning century in the BTW Cup Under-14 Tournament. He also received a 'Best Batsman' award back in 2015 in the Under-12 Gopalan Cricket Challenge. Twitter Going by his current performances, it's safe to say that this young cricketer will have a long career filled with even more incredible performances, just like his father.
  23. When Bollywood biggies gather to discuss a few important things, it's hard to imagine the knowledge that's being exchanged. They're probably talking about their next big release, an upcoming airport outfit or well — women. Because that's what men usually do. But if Bollywood's men's footwear trends are any indication, Balenciaga's Triple S sneakers are probably a part of the discussion too. From Diljit Dosanjh, Karan Johar to even Bad Boy Shah (AKA Badshah), these ugly, clunky shoes now a part of famous Indian wardrobes and are spotted on quite a few occasions. But what are these kicks, what the hell do they look like and what makes them so dope; here's everything you need to know: © Footwear News 1. Triple S — a unisex range of ugly, dad-like sneakers — was launched at Balenciaga's F/W'17 runway by Demna Gvasalia, originally the designer of 'Vetements' and alternatively, now the brand-new Creative Director of Balenciaga. This was Gvasalia's first step towards bringing a fresh perspective towards the brand's sneaker catalog, which he describes as 'heavy-duty, high fashion-spec footwear'. 2. The first edition of the Triple S range kicks was launched in 2016, with a retail price of $795 (approx. Rs. 54,692). Over time, as the demand for the pair increased, the price of it on StockX.com drastically increased; reaching about $1,200 at times (approx. Rs. 82,566). © Instagram/Viral Bhayani 3. Each Triple S pair features a triple-stacked sole that's almost two inches tall, suede/leather/mesh trims, a variety of colourways and falls right under the trend of 'Dadcore'. Basically representing, that the most ordinary, big (AKA ugly) kicks our dads have sworn by for decades, are now officially cool (with a big style upgrade, of course). 4. The tongue of the Triple S kicks is our favourite aspect. Besides boasting of the Triple S logo, it also features the shoe sizing as well as a unique bar code (a one-of-a-kind detail for luxury sneakers). The laces are hiking shoes-inspired, the upper is straight off a running shoe, © Footwear News 5. While the first few Triple S' had blaring Balenciaga branding on the trims, over time, it has been replaced by just a very small tag, making way for a lot more details on the pair and brand-new colour ways. Says a lot about the brand's way forward with the Triple S range! 6. While most Triple S kicks feature 2-3 tones/shades/colours (all in a shoe), they also come in the form of a 50/50 colourway (that will be launched soon). For example, one half of the shoe would be black, grey, cream and yellow in colour and the other half would completely contrasting (a blue, red and green). © Nice Kicks 7. The soles used to create a Triple S pair, are a mix of the moulds of Balenciaga's running, basketball and track shoes and in general, are padded very heavily. Giving birth to the big, over-sized nature of the sneakers. 8. According to reports, thanks to the advent of the Triple S, Balenciaga is now the fastest growing luxury brand with this product catalog, even surpassing the biggest giants like Gucci in 2018.
