  1. Indian parents are a different league altogether and I bet you'd agree with me. If you haven't had a 'chappal' swung at you, have you even had a memorable childhood? From being savage to making sure you're the laughing stock of the family, Indian parents are a league apart and this Indian guy's tweet is stated testimony. via GIPHY Siddhu, a Twitter user (@cheekyponnama), talked about how his mother liked keeping his picture in her wallet, all the time. The lad got mighty emotional when he saw his picture in her wallet and went on to Tweet about it. But what he didn't expect was the answer that came as a surprise to him and really put him in his place with his mother's savage comeback. My mum has a photo of me in her wallet and not of my siblings. She said whenever she faces an obstacle, she looks at my photo and the problem disappears. I felt really touched till she said, she also tells herself, “what other problem can be bigger than this one?” ð¥ð¥ð¥ — Siddhu (@cheekyponnama) 17 February 2019 He realised what she was trying to say only when she finished her sentence. Ouch! 'She said whenever she faces an obstacle, she looks at my photo and the problem disappears,' he wrote. 'I felt really touched till she said, she also tells herself, “what other problem can be bigger than this one?' Now do you have a clearer understanding of what Indian mothers, if not parents, are like? They definitely love adding more fuel to fire, just so they can have some fun at your expense. Siddhu's Tweet went viral and people on the internet reacted to it. Savagery of savageries! I stan for your mom! pic.twitter.com/0nx18iAuLr — Duchess King Goshen ð DKG™ï¸ (@arrahdasoul) 19 February 2019 Reminds me of this pic.twitter.com/9smJNqL2jr — ðð¤ (@christinamagma) 20 February 2019 Damn, mama pic.twitter.com/yOiHUjmoxf — Vanyeetus Deletus (@VanthePapaya) 18 February 2019 Damn, Exactly what my mom did. Thanks for remind me hahaha — Arief Rahman (@AriefRptm) 19 February 2019 Siddhu, so far those who agrees with you are First born, those were d days but not in this generation even if you contribute to the family the most. All parents in their hearts, love their children all the same. This is facts. — Diamond Wong (@diamondwong) 18 February 2019 So, the next time you get excited about something good your parents have done for you, make sure you hear out the entire story first!
  2. While a few of the cricket pundits are adamant to boycott Pakistan during the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 without considering the plausible long-term consequences for the brilliant athletes such as Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah who have helped built one of the most talented cricket teams in the history of Indian cricket, the Indian National Olympic Committee (NOC) have already taken a major step towards cutting all relations with the neighbouring country. During the 34th edition of the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup, currently taking place in New Delhi, India decided to refuse visas to two of the Pakistani shooters in GM Bashir and Khalil Ahmed. The ban comes as a response to the unfortunate suicide bombing in the Pulwama district of Jammu & Kashmir, the credit for which was taken by the notorious terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed. © Reuters However, according to clause 6 under the Fundamental Principles of Olympism in the Olympic Charter, every Olympian enjoys a set of 'rights' and 'freedoms' what shall be secured without discrimination of any kind, such as race, colour, ***, sexual orientation, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. In other words, Even though the political scenario between India and Pakistan, no matter how strenuous it may be, should have no effect on the olympic athletes belonging from either of the countries. Clearly having violated the mandate, the International Olympic Committee has decided to not indulge with friendly talks with the Indian NOC with regards to providing the rights for hosting future Olympic events in the country, “until and unless a written clearance from the government is obtained”. The hasty decision to ban the Pakistani shooters from participating in the ISSF World Cup, might seem to be justified in the eyes of a lot of us who are scarred by the forlorn incident but it could have massive repercussions for the Indian athletes in the future. © Reuters First of all, for a country as diverse as India with a huge number of fans for nearly every Olympic sport, it is crucial to continue to host major events like the ISSF World Cup. Eventually, we will have to give in to the Olympic Charter if we wish to be associated with the greatest sporting platform, period, thereby completely negating the the value of their ongoing protest. Secondly, if push comes to shove, the IOC will not even think twice before banning India as a whole as they did Russia in 2018, taking away the rights of the country to hoist their flags during the tournament and sing their national anthem. For a country that sends one of the biggest contingents to the historical tournament with national teams and individuals preparing for years to get that one shot, an international ban would not only result in a lost opportunity but also the loss of potential earnings. India doesn't lack in athletes who are trying to make ends meet. Taking away an opportunity like this would only bring hardships and struggles to the people of India. The protest then, would be the last thing on our minds.
  3. With all eyes on the ICC World Cup in England & Wales, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have pretty much narrowed down the squad for the mega event, slated to begin this May. While the consistent performers will be seen carrying the baton for their side, a lot of other Indian cricketers seem to have missed out. Amongst the ones who missed out, young Shreyas Iyer, too, failed to make the cut. But, the 24-year-old has neither allowed it to affect his mindset, nor his performance on the field. In fact, if we were to go by his recent outing with the willow, Shreyas appears to be making a strong statement which is bound to garner the attention of Indian selectors. Shreyas Iyer was the no. 4 we were looking for but @BCCI didn't give him much chance as compared to Rahane, Manish, Rayudu otherwise he'd in WC squad. — Ovi (@Abhijit_19) February 21, 2019 Unfazed by the snub, Shreyas took the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy by storm after a blistering innings during Mumbai's opening match against Sikkim. The right-hander slammed a whirlwind 55-ball 147 (scoring 118 runs in boundaries). In the process, he surpassed Rishabh Pant to record the highest individual score by an Indian batsman in the history of T20 cricket. Coming in to bat, with Mumbai reeling at 22/2, Shreyas stabilised the innings for his side with a pivotal 213-run partnership for the third wicket with Suryakumar Yadav (63). During his marauding knock, the Mumbai batsman smashed 15 sixes and seven boundaries, including a 35-run over off Sikkim's medium-pacer Tashi Bhalla. Highest T20 scores by Indians 147 - Shreyas Iyer for Mumbai today 128* - Rishabh Pant for Delhi Daredevils 2018 127 - M Vijay for Chennai Super Kings 2010 126* - Suresh Raina for Uttar Pradesh 2018 125 - Unmukt Chand for Delhi 2013#SyedMushtaqAliTrophy — Mohandas Menon (@mohanstatsman) February 21, 2019 Incidentally, Shreyas' tally of 15 sixes also saw going past Murali Vijay (11) for most maximums in a T20 innings among Indian batsmen. He is now tied on the fourth spot on the overall list with none other than 'Universe Boss' Chris Gayle. Thanks to the right-handed batsman's sensational knock, Mumbai reached a formidable total of 258 runs in their quota of 20 overs. In reply, Sikkim failed to get going in their run-chase. Shardul Thakur and Shams Mulani bagged two wickets apiece to ensure Sikkim could only manage 104/7 in 20 overs, losing the match by 154 runs. Highest score by an Indian in T20 history â Most sixes by an Indian in a T20 innings â O Captain, Our Captain!#SyedMushtaqAliTrophy #ShreyasIyer#ThisIsNewDelhi #DelhiCapitals pic.twitter.com/TCbNJ03lZm — Delhi Capitals (@DelhiCapitals) February 21, 2019 Sadly, despite the talent & good performance, Shreyas Iyer lost his place in Indian team. — Lionð®ð³ (@ShoorVeerKing) February 21, 2019 Wow looking forward for such performances in international level, once he gets the chance — anju rawat (@anjubharatrawat) February 21, 2019 Poor Shreyas iyer he has a competition with IPL bully Rayudu who doesn't even play domestic cricket. What a shame — Coach Ravi Shastri (@saffron_archer) February 21, 2019 Wow.. I mean in another country he would've been a established star batsman by now. Instead we have duds like Rayudu to contend till the WC. I hope for wholesome changes in batting order after WC. This team is too damn old — Romeo Rajat (@RomeoRajat2) February 21, 2019 Shreyas iyer is rare talent , he is much better than Rayudu , u r picking Rayudu just for his IPL performance where as iyer is scoring tons of runs in domestic cricket . — Coach Ravi Shastri (@saffron_archer) February 21, 2019

  5. Once a unified nation, India and Pakistan have gone on to become arch-rivals following the hurtful partition in 1947. Since then, the cross-border tensions, political differences and the prolonged issue of Kashmir have all fuelled the rivalry between the two neighbouring countries. However, despite the differences in opinion on numerous matters between India and Pakistan, the cricketers from both the countries share mutual respect and admiration. Virat Kohli was probably the first individual to praise Mohammad Amir after he returned to cricket following his match-fixing saga. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) also sent a signed Team India jersey to Shahid Afridi upon his retirement from cricket. Then, Afridi struck a chord with Indian fans after showing respect to the tri-colour during an ice cricket tournament in Switzerland. But, it seems times have changed. © AP The dastardly Pulawama attack that claimed the lives of more than 40 CRPF personnel has got everyone on the edge with the ties between the two nations reaching an all-time low. The suicide terror strike carried out by Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) has enraged India and its citizens who are now calling for a complete boycott of Pakistan. And, amid all the backlash, Afridi did his reputation no good after he was seen spewing venom on India during an interview on a Pakistani news channel. Lauding Pakistan PM Imran Khan's recent statements, Afridi blamed India for targeting Pakistan under the garb of the Pulwama attack without any proof. Pakistani Cricket Star @SAfridiOfficial endorsing the message of @ImranKhanPTI sent to India through a speech and saying Pakistan want friendly relations with all neighbours “Indians should behave like a well educated nation” watch tonight in #CapitalTalk on Geo News at 8 PST pic.twitter.com/2PxkesHmzq — Hamid Mir (@HamidMirPAK) February 20, 2019 "Without any proof they are putting all the blame onto Pakistan straight away. PM Imran Khan has once again spoken on this matter in a positive & clear way to explain that Pakistan wants to have good relations with not only India, but also Afghanistan, Iran & China," Afridi was heard saying on the show. In the wake of the ghastly attack, IMG Reliance recently pulled out as the main broadcaster of the fourth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) which is currently in progress. Reacting to that, Afridi once again took a dig at India by claiming that educated people don't behave in this manner. "You find out who your friends are at difficult times. What are they trying to show the world that they are educated? Educated people don't behave in such a manner," Afridi said. While the Indian government has already taken measures to isolate Pakistan, the BCCI is also mulling the idea of boycotting Pakistan at the ICC World Cup in England & Wales, later this year. Amidst all that, Afridi, rather than behaving like an ideal sports icon, has got Indian fans up in arms.

  6. Following a crazy bidding war last December, the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is set to enthral cricket fans as Chennai Super Kings (CSK) host Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the opening clash on 23rd March. With the opening match pitting two of the biggest cricketers Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni against each other, the fans have already begun placing their bets on their favourite team on the social media. Despite the general elections coinciding with the upcoming IPL season, the fact that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has carefully ensured that the matches are played in India, further cheered the home fans. With IPL 2019 just a month away, the buzz amongst the fans in anticipation of the upcoming season appears to be at an all-time high. ð¨ Announcement ð¨: The #VIVOIPL schedule for the first two weeks is out. The first match of the 2019 season will be played between @ChennaiIPL and @RCBTweets Details - https://t.co/wCi6dYHlXL pic.twitter.com/TaYdXNKVSx — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) February 19, 2019 In a bid to get their hands at the prized tickets of the IPL matches, a lot of fans seem to be approaching popular celebrities and cricket bigwigs on the social media, seeking their help. One such hilarious incident has been brought to the limelight by Ishant Sharma's wife Pratima Singh on social media. After going unsold at the auctions last season, Ishant's improved performance with the Indian team in Test cricket helped him in finding a suitor in Delhi Capitals who fought with Rajasthan Royals in the bidding war to secure the services of the seamer for Rs 1 crore. But, while Ishant is busy preparing to live up to his price tag this season, his wife Pratima - a professional basketball player - has found herself tackling the absurd requests of fans. View this post on Instagram For the world its yey !!! IPL is coming , for cricketers and their family OMG IPL is coming !! Log Tickets le liye phone karenge , Tickets maangege , tickets - tickets - tickets ðððð @ishant.sharma29 @divya4india @manishkumar5967 @prashantisingh @akankshasingh4 @vikrant_solanki__ @rajeev1717 @gaurav_chh ð@anuj A post shared by Pratima singh (@pratima0808) on Feb 17, 2019 at 9:20pm PST Fed up by the consistent messages, Pratima decided to troll the cricket fans who were asking her for the IPL match tickets. Taking to Instagram, she shared a screenshot of the conversation with a fan who sought her help for the tickets. "For the world its yey !!! IPL is coming, for cricketers and their family OMG IPL is coming !! Log Tickets le liye phone karenge (people will call for tickets, Tickets maangege (ask for tickets), tickets - tickets - tickets," Pratima captioned the picture. With Ishant being one of the few experienced Indian players who'll not be seen playing in the forthcoming ICC World Cup in May, the Delhi paceman will be eager to reaffirm his credentials with a fine showing for his new franchise in the upcoming IPL season.
  7. On 14th February, when the world was busy celebrating love, India and its citizens were pushed into a state of mourning. A sinister plan by Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) saw a 20-year-old suicide bomber ramming his explosive-laden SUV into a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy that robbed India of more than 40 brave soldiers and injured others. Since then, the ghastly terror strike has become the topic of great discussion in the country that recently witnessed the tearful last rites of the Pulwama attack martyrs. While many have suggested adequate action and revenge from the Indian government, others have joined hands to aid the grieving families of the slained soldiers. © AP There is anger and a lot of frustration amongst the Indian citizens. And, the mindset of Indian boxers was no different when they travelled to Sofia in Bulgaria for the Strandja Memorial Boxing Tournament. Their nation was grieving and the boxers didn't know any other way to cheer the citizens, but make India proud through medal-winning performances. India finished the tournament with seven medals - three gold, a silver and three bronze medals - in Sofia. Amongst the medal winners, Nikhat Zareen, Meena Kumari Devi and Amit Pangal bagged top honours at one of Europe's oldest boxing tournaments. While Nikhat dedicated her gold medal (in women's 51kg category) to the CRPF martyrs, Amit got emotional as he honoured the Indian bravehearts with a spectacular performance. © Twitter Amit, a Naib Subedar in the Indian Army, said that the Pulwama attack was on his mind through the tournament. "It hurt a little bit more because I belong to the armed forces. I was desperate for a medal because I wanted to dedicate it to the heroes who lost their lives in Pulwama," Amit was quoted as saying by TOI. "This was my mindset the moment I got to know of the attack after landing here. I was in touch with my family members during the tournament and they also told me that I had to win a medal in honour of the Pulwama martyrs. I was doubly motivated by this thought," the Rohtak-born boxer added. I am very happy to win Goldð¥for India at the Strandja Cup. I dedicate this medal to the families of the CRPF jawans who lost their lives in the Pulwama attackð • •#proudindian #champion #hardworkalwayspaysoff #godisgreat #boxing #womenboxing pic.twitter.com/1L99ZWWuOp — Nikhat Zareen (@nikhat_zareen) February 19, 2019 On the other hand, Nikhat, too, shared a heartfelt message on the social media following her gold-medal finish. "I am very happy to win Gold for India at the Strandja Cup. I dedicate this medal to the families of the CRPF jawans who lost their lives in the Pulwama attack," the former junior world champion tweeted.
  8. The Indian Railways as well as Minister Piyush Goyal decided to get a bit sassy with all defaulters and people who dupe for tickets with a clever hack. They launched their own 'Gully Boy' rap to warn everyone that 'tera time aayega' and it's hilarious. Tera Time Aayega pic.twitter.com/3JI8SoPx3u — Piyush Goyal (@PiyushGoyal) February 18, 2019 The funny video is a reminder to buy train tickets and not fool around with the TC while you are on a journey. While we loved this 'shaana' take on the original song sung from Zoya Akhtar's 'Gully Boy', people on social media decided to make a few points to retaliate to this rap. Train Time Pe Aayega? — Rizzzzzz (@ShaikhNabi1) February 18, 2019 Train time se jayega , beech main to nahi ruk jayega — Rahul (@dildar12) February 18, 2019 While some innocently questioned train timings, some shared their own woes. Window seat pe baithne ka time aata hai tab tak mera stop aajata hai ð­ð­ — Godman Chikna (@Madan_Chikna) February 18, 2019 Hope this becomes "Tu bina ticket aaya hai toh fine bharke jaayega" Kyunki pakda jaane ke baad kya hota hai hum sabko pata hai. — SAGAR (@sagarcasm) February 19, 2019 All jokes aside, one should obviously not flout rules and act too 'shaana'! So please buy your own ticket, guys.
  9. Over a period of time, we have heard many stories of dramatic comebacks, tales that go beyond the locker rooms. The extraordinary examples of hard-word, discipline and determination to overcome challenges were the main highlights of this year's Laureus World Sports Awards, which were held in Monaco on Monday. Tennis world No. 1, Novak Djokovic won the Best Sportsman of the year award for the 4th time, equalling the record of Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt in the same category. The Serb faced a major blow in February 2018 when he was threatened by a serious elbow injury, for which he had a surgery done. But the 'Stubborn Djokovic,' as his wife Jelena lovingly calls him, not only made his way back to the court but also went on to win two Grand-Slams consecutively, first the US Open in September and recently the Australian Open. © Reuters Jelena added that for her husband, tennis was “not about money or glory but for value and purpose.” The Indian NGO, YUWA, who won the 'Sport For Good' Award this year, is a Jharkhand based NGO which works for girls empowerment. The Sport For Good Award was inaugurated by the great Nelson Mandela, who believed that “sport has the power to change the world.” The motive of the award is to “use the power of sports to end violence, discrimination and disadvantage. Proving that sport can change the world.” The NGO YUWA is owned by a Franz Gastler and Ross Thomson Gastler of America and runs a football program in rural Jharkhand covering approx 450 girls. The girls who have been associated with the program have transformed into coaches while the maximum of them are amateurs. Four girls out of the 450, received the award on behalf of Yuwa in the ceremony held yesterday. © Reuters Before the ceremony, former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, kicked a few balls with the girls and said “They are good technically and want to play together. We used to say football is a sport played by 11 selfish individuals but they play like a team and are highly motivated.” Other than Wenger, five-time Olympic champion swimmer, Missy Franklin was also touched by the story of the young Indian women who made it to the big stage despite factors like challenging factors like child marriage, which are still prevalent in many rural parts of India. The Indian cricket team was the first to bag this award in 2004 with their Pakistani counterpart, for continuing the bilateral series, despite the political tensions between the two nations. © Reuters American gymnast, Simone Biles won the 'Sportswoman of The Year' award for the second time, followed by American tennis champion Naomi Osaka, who won the 'Breakthrough of The Year' award for her Consecutive Grand-Slam wins and reaching the top of the WTA's women's ranking. Where Tiger Woods earned the 'Comeback of the Year' award, Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn and Arsene Wenger were awarded 'Spirit of Sport' and the 'Lifetime Achievement' Award, respectively.
  10. The rage is real. Memories of all those CRPF jawans being mercilessly martyred at the hands of the Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists continue to haunt us. Whether it's the loud chants of “Vande Mataram” during the candle march at India Gate in unison or the emotional speeches given by the fellow soldiers, the flare against those who want to harm our motherland is burning bright in every Indian. While the common citizens are trying their best to show their protest, there is one man in particular who is waging a war of his own against terror and those perpetrators who want to see the world burn. That man being Gautam Gambhir. Although he has parted ways with the Indian cricket team, the former Indian opener continues to serve his country even now. After the infamous terror attack at the hands of a Jaish influenced suicide bomber caused more than 40 CRPF soldiers their lives, Gambhir was one of the first few to condemn it. He was also one of the first to suggest that the only way to sort the issue out for good is to settle it on the “battle ground”. “Yes, let's talk with the separatists. Yes, let's talk with Pakistan. But this time conversation can't be on the table, it has to be in a battle ground. Enough is enough. 18 CRPF personnel killed in IED blast on Srinagar-Jammu highway,” the cricketer had tweeted on the day of the attack. Having admitted time and again that his first love was the Indian Army and not cricket, Gambhir also runs a foundation that works in favour of the children of the martyred soldiers of the nation. “We are sponsoring 50 children right now, we are going to increase the number to 100,” he said at the launch of Radhika Kawlra Singh's book 'It's Easy To Be You'. “It was pure destiny and had I not played Ranji Trophy in 12th (standard), I would have definitely gone into the NDA because that was my first love and it still remains my first love. In fact, my only regret in life is that I couldn't join the army,” Gambhir had said. Indian Army नॠयह à¤à¤à¤ भॠशà¥à¤°à¥ नहà¥à¤ à¤à¤°à¥ but they will bloody well finish it and I am with them emotion-to-emotion, shoulder-to-shoulder. — Gautam Gambhir (@GautamGambhir) February 17, 2019 The patriot in Gautam Gambhir has enabled him to serve his country to the best of his abilities. So what if he is not a soldier, his was against terror is equally important and must be supported under any circumstances.
  11. 14th February 2019 marked one of the darkest days in India's rich history. A cowardly terror strike in the Pulwama district of Awantipora robbed India of more than 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel on the spot, while injuring several others. The tragic incident has since become the topic of great discussion, further fuelling backlash for Pakistan over their alleged role in the deadly strike. In protest against the Pulwama attack, the Indian government withdrew the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status awarded to Pakistan. Upon withdrawal, basic customs duty on all goods exported from Pakistan to India has been raised to 200 per cent with immediate effect. More recently, IMG Reliance, too, pulled out of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as their main broadcaster, as a mark of respect for the CRPF martyrs. © AP The Cricket Club of India (CCI) also removed the portrait of Pakistan PM Imran Khan from their restaurant wall. While the world was condemning the horrendous act, the Pakistan PM didn't even bother to comment on it which led to the CCI's move. "We condemn the terror activities carried out against our army and CRPF personnel. Though CCI is a sporting association but nation comes first even before sports," CCI Secretary Suresh Bafna had told ANI, while also suggesting to skip the Pakistan clash in the ICC World Cup in June. Amid growing calls for revenge, Indian cricket fans, too, have asked skipper Virat Kohli and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to boycott Pakistan at the World Cup in England and Wales. Expel the country Pakistan from every global arena, at first, expel them from ICC World cup 2019. It's mandatory. Separate them is every stage.ð ð¡ Jai Hind. #ICC we don't want to see Ind vs Pak match WC #ExposeDeshDrohis #PulwamaTerrorAttacks #ICC #BCCI pic.twitter.com/udBFAbUvpc — Shomedeep Mondal (@MondalShomedeep) February 17, 2019 @BCCI @imVkohli @RaviShastriOfc The general emotion of the Indian public is don't play Pakistan in world cup as well, let ICC award the 2 points to Pakistan.

  12. The Indian Army deserves all the respect in the world. Here we have Vicky Kaushal offering a heartfelt tribute to them on behalf of the entire country.
  13. If you are looking to get on the ray tracing train and want to own the latest piece of hardware by Nvidia without spending a lot, the RTX 2060 is probably your only option. It's based on Nvidia's new Turing architecture and is the least expensive version from Nvidia's latest lineup. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla The Founder's Edition of RTX 2060 retails in India for Rs 31,000 and is a worthy upgrade of its predecessor i.e. GTX 1060. Sure, it's a bit more expensive from the previous variant, however, you get to take advantage of the new Ray Tracing feature on a budget. It even has support for DLSS which lets the card render more realistic lighting in real-time. We used the card to test out two games that take advantage of this tech i.e. Metro Exodus and Battlefield V. In our test, the RTX 2060 easily matched the performance of equally priced GPUs with the added bonus of future-proof ray tracing support. It's the perfect choice for gamers who want to play games at 1080p resolution without shelling out a lot of money for an updated GPU. If you want to know our PC setup for the test, you can have a look at all the specs here. We substituted our RTX 2080 ti with the RTX 2060, while the rest of the setup remained the same. Specifications © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla The Founders Edition 2060 is basically based on the same TU106 processor that can be found on the RTX 2070. It has a single 8-pin power connector and two fans to keep it cooled. At the back, it has two DisplayPorts, a USB-C port and HDMI 2.0 input. In terms of CUDA core count, it has the same count as the GTX 1070 i.e. 1920 but has 5 Giga Rays/s. It also has 6GB GGDR6 of VRAM which basically increases performance and reduces power consumption at the same time. It's definitely an upgrade considering the previous iteration had the older GDDR5X configuration. The RTX 2060 also has a boost clock of 1680 MHz which is at par with the GTX 1070. CUDA cores are basically the workhorses of a GPU that is responsible for handling all the heavy computing. It works alongside the VRAM to offer clear differences in FPS counts with or without ray tracing. If you want to know more about ray-tracing and DLSS, you can read all about it here. Performance © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla At the moment, there are only two games out there that supports DLSS and ray tracing i.e. Battlefield V and Metro Exodus. Regardless of game support, the RTX 2060 is a solid card when it came to 1080 performance. We ran it through some benchmarks to see how it fared in certain games: 3D Mark First Strike Test We used 3DMark, as it can simulate different types of games and is one of the more demanding benchmark tests a GPU can be put through. It also tests out the GPUs power consumption and the average temperature in gaming conditions. The RTX 2060 scores a respectable score in each department. Here's what the RTX 2060 managed to score: It was efficient when it came to cooling and managed to run at a peak temperature of 64ºC. Power consumption, on the other hand, was a tad bit higher than the 1070 but shouldn't be a major concern. RTX 2060 Firestrike Extreme Score © MensXP RTX 2060 3DMark Heat © MensXP RTX 2060 3DMark Power Consumption © MensXP Ray Tracing and DLSS Ray tracing and DLSS is the one feature that is exclusive to RTX cards and it is also the primary reason for the increase in price. Sure, there aren't many games out there that support these two features but the future looks bright thanks to numerous developers have already announced support for future games. At the moment, we could only test Metro Exodus and Battlefield V that has support for both features. When both features are turned on, the difference in graphics and lighting fidelity is noticeable. It breathes new life in Battlefield V however we would only recommend running RTX with DLSS switched on. Here are the results for both games in terms for Frames Per Second in 1080p with RTX on and Off Battlefield V (Frames Per Second) © MensXP Metro Exodus (Frames Per Second) © MensXP It's clear that RTX 2060 is capable of handling good FPS in 1080p and we could push it even higher when would turn down the RTX settings. In fact, it would boost the frame rate past 60fps easily. With DLSS turned on, we achieved the frame rates mentioned above but it noticeably looked better. The lighting was much warmer and had a better representation of shadows with DLSS. The Final Say Not everyone can afford a top-of-the-line graphics card for 4K gaming. Especially when you live in India and gamers are looking for more affordable options. For someone who wants to game 1080p and doesn't want to spend a lot on a new GPU, the RTX 2060 is your best option right now. It supports ray train and DLSS and is also future proof for Full HD gaming. It takes advantage of Nvidia's new Turing tech and costs only Rs 31,000. This is the GPU for the masses and an affordable option in 2019.
  14. Of all the grooming accessories that you will find in a man's grooming kit, the razor he uses possibly holds the most importance. It's his go-to tool for a quick shave, to groom his facial hair, and to be ready for an impromptu date. But despite the importance it harbours, it's surprising to discover that many men aren't even aware of all the different types of razors that are out there. In fact, as unbelievable as this may sound, but many Indian men's knowledge of razors is solely confined to the one that they are using. Needless to say, this needs to change. So, to help all of our bros invest in the right grooming essentials that perfectly cater to their needs, here are the different types of razors that all Indian men should be informed about: 1. Electric Razors © Pexels Unlike the other razors mentioned on our list, electric razors tend to run on electricity, and so don't require any shaving cream or water for you to shave. Primarily speaking, they can be classified into two main categories - foil shavers and rotary shavers. While foil shavers come equipped with a silver foil on the top of their blades that ensure that the blades themselves are never in direct contact with your skin, rotary shavers come equipped with three round shaped blades that move in a circular motion. Foil shavers are less noisy and easier to clean, whereas rotary shavers will help you get the closest shave. On the flip side, electric razors are dependent on a power supply, so they pretty much become ineffective if they run out of battery and you don't have the means to charge them. 2. Safety Razors © Amazon Of all the types of razors out there, safety razors are as old school as it gets. In fact, in all likelihood, this was the razor that your grandfather would have used for shaving his facial scruff. As the name suggests itself, these razors are considered to be the safest option to add to your grooming kit. This is because, while they come equipped with a double-edged blade, they also have a safety guard that helps protect your skin from unintentional cuts. Additionally, a safety razor also ensures that only a single razor blade is going to be making contact with your skin, which only adds to your sense of safety. Safety razors also tend to be incredibly easy to use, are super affordable, and maker for the perfect choice for all those men who are looking for an option that will require minimal pressure and cause the least amount of irritation on your skin. 3. Straight Razors © Amazon There used to be a time when straight razors were the only type of razors that were used for shaving. Nowadays, these are the razors you'd mostly see those local barbers who practice under a tree use for shaving. Also known as 'cut-throat' razors, these incredibly simple razors come equipped with a sharp blade that folds into the handle. It's a great choice for those looking for a razor that will give them the sharpest of shaves, which will be incredibly durable and won't cost a fortune. However, it's important to remember that these razors also provide the least amount of security, and you can easily cause a serious injury to yourself. 4. Cartridge Razors © Amazon These are perhaps the most commonly used type of razors out there. In fact, if you were to go to your washroom right now and take a closer look at the type of razor you are currently using, chances are it's going to be a cartridge razor. They are mostly made of a metal or plastic body, with a flexible centre that helps you get a smooth shave as it follows the shape of your face. The blades in these razors come in cartridges (hence the name), which are easily replaceable. The cartridges can have anywhere between two to six blades and are incredibly safe to use. Depending on the number of blades they have, they can be mostly classified into the following types of razors: A) Two-blade razors B)Three-blade razors C) Five-blade razors 5. Disposable Razors © Amazon The name pretty much speaks for itself. Disposable razors are perfect for those looking for a cheap and quick shave, perhaps for an impromptu meeting or an unexpected dinner date. You can use them for a couple of shaves, before discarding them, which is why they end up being the best razors for all those avid-travellers who may be planning a road trip or weekend getaway but don't want their razor or trimmer to take up extra space in their bags. Despite their usefulness, however, you should know that the blades that are used in such razors aren't exactly of the highest quality.
  15. Last November, the Indian cricket team embarked on a long journey away from home that included gruelling tours of Australia and New Zealand. During that time, India drew the Twenty20 International (T20I) series before winning the Tests and One-Day Internationals (ODIs) against Australia. And then, they travelled to New Zealand where they demolished the hosts in ODIs before stuttering in the T20Is. While their overseas tour has come to an end, India, now, await their next challenge which, once again, involves the Australian brigade. With revenge on their mind, the Aussie team will travel to India for two T20Is and five ODIs, slated to begin from 24th February. But, after spending three months on the road, the Indian cricketers finally had a breather as the T20I series against Australia is still more than a week away. Several Indian cricketers were seen making the most of their time at home after they shared pictures and videos on the social media. From Rohit Sharma to Virat Kohli, here's how Indian cricketers are unwinding following their long overseas tour: Rohit Sharma How happily he is playing with his daughterâ¤ð­! Rohit Sharma and his daughter Samairað!@ImRo45 @ritssajdeh pic.twitter.com/wpyDBDwvv9 — Niyati (@niyati_45) February 12, 2019 The Indian opener didn't really have a great time as stand-in captain in the T20Is against New Zealand, losing the series 2-1. But, the 'Hitman' did find a reason to cheer for as he became the leading run-getter in the shortest format following a brilliant fifty in the second T20I in Auckland. Upon his return to India, Rohit was elated to spend time with his daughter 'Samaira'. A video of Rohit playing with his daughter was also shared on the social media. Kuldeep Yadav After a long and gruelling tour, time to head back home with loads of happy memories to cherishð®ð³ðð»âð» pic.twitter.com/tvMUL1hZfO — Kuldeep yadav (@imkuldeep18) February 11, 2019 One of India's premier spinners, Kuldeep had a decent outing in both, Australia and New Zealand. Thanks to his exploits, the wrist-spinner recently notched up a career-best second position in the ICC's T20I rankings for bowlers. Clearly, the young spinner was happy to be home as he shared a photograph of himself in the company of his Team India mates Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant and Yuzvendra Chahal. Shikhar Dhawan It is time to knuckle up! #knuckleup #workout #hardwork #life #tuesdaythoughts #keepgoingðª pic.twitter.com/CSeSbaur3L — Shikhar Dhawan (@SDhawan25) February 12, 2019 The marauding Indian opener had a mixed outing in Australia and New Zealand. While he did get a lot of starts, Dhawan just couldn't capitalise and convert them into big individual scores. With the Aussies coming to India this month, Dhawan will be eager to make his presence felt in a bid to win over the fans. And, that's exactly what might have been on his mind when he shared a brief video where the left-hander can be seen doing push-up on his knuckles. Virat Kohli Instagram After helping his side in gaining an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match ODI series, Kohli was rested from the last two 50-over contests and the three T20Is against New Zealand. While his team stuttered to a narrow 2-1 loss in the T20Is, Kohli was seen exploring the scenic beauty of New Zealand with wife Anushka Sharma. Early on Tuesday, the couple returned home and as soon as they landed at the Mumbai airport, the Indian captain shared a selfie of their arrival with the cricket fans on the social media. Dinesh Karthik Instagram The Indian middle-order batsman was recently slammed for his antics during India's four-run loss against New Zealand in the deciding T20I. His decision to deny Krunal Pandya a crucial single in the final over didn't go down well with the fans. Karthik did manage to hit a six off the last ball, but it wasn't good enough to take India home. But, that is now a thing of the past. The T20I series is done and dusted. And, Karthik is just happy to be back home and dig in to south Indian delicacies. MS Dhoni .@msdhoni back in bay after New Zealand & Australia tour!ð®ð³ð@seemantlohani @mihir_diwakar #Dhoni #MSDhoni #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/vOiDlbdMrP — MS Dhoni Fans Official (@msdfansofficial) February 12, 2019 For someone who desperately needed to prove his mettle, MS Dhoni made the most of time during India's tour of Australia and New Zealand. The former Indian captain shut his critics with his 'Player of the Series' performance in the ODIs against Australia and then continued to play a crucial role in the middle-order against the Kiwis. On the back of some sublime performances, Dhoni has not only won over fans, but has also impressed the selectors who'll surely take note of his exploits before announcing the Indian squad for the ICC World Cup in England and Wales. But, for now, Dhoni seemed really happy to return home.
  16. The Indian Army is the largest standing volunteer army in the world, which is not only known for its bravado and daredevilry when it comes to standing guard over their motherland, but its soldiers also inspire awe and unceasing respect for their selflessless service towards the nation. All of us feel strongly about these men and women who dare to face death in their line of duty. After all, we owe so much of the life we're living to them. It is their sacrifice and selfless passion to serve the country and its people, that allows us to enjoy the kind of safe and fun life we lead, day after day. © Twitter But how often do we stop to acknowledge their service and pay homage to their sacrifices? Well, a martyred soldier's 6-year-old daughter recalls her papa's lessons on the Indian Army, and it will remind you to take a moment and appreciate the numerous lives that constantly look death in the eye, so that innocent lives can be saved. © Honourpoint On 29th November 2016, Major Akshay Girish Kumar and Major Gosavi Kunal Mannadir were killed in an ambush in Nagrota, along with five other jawans. Two years since his passing away, Akshay's little daughter was seen recalling her father's teachings about the Indian Army in a video, which has since been actively circulated on social media. In the video Akshay's daughter Naina can be seen telling us what her father told her about the Indian Army. Check out the video here: A year after Akshay's martyrdom, Naina recollects conversations with her papa. Here she teaches us what 'Army is...' This random video captures innocence and faith. Love is an emotion. Her papa's love for the Army and Countrymen also stays within her. Jai Hind. @adgpi pic.twitter.com/kWecbp1Tax — Meghna Girish (@megirish2001) February 11, 2019 The faith and pride with which Naina recalls her dad's lessons, fills our hearts with joy.
  17. Let's talk about sports and grooming going hand in hand for a second. Sports is an intense field and if you engage with it, it leaves you all sweaty and messed up. However, some men know how to clean up well even on the field and even after a long and tiresome match they still look on point. So here is list of Indian sports men that really know their grooming men. 1. Ishant Sharma © Getty Images While Ishant Sharma might have been punished for having long hair in school, he's really turned it around as an adult. His shoulder length mane adds a certain character to his personality. Imagine Ishant Sharma without this hair! Well, we can't either. 2. Virat Kohli © Getty Images Not that Virat Kohli didn't look great before his days with Anushka Sharma, but we feel since she has stepped into his life, he's really understood the importance of grooming, maintaining the perfect hairstyle and a beard style that looks like a million bucks on him. 3. Hardik Pandya © Getty Images Now, we know that he's received a lot of flak recently for his controversial 'Koffee With Karan' comments, however the guy does clean up well. We can't really question that, can we? 4. Sunil Chhetri © Getty Images Apart from being the striker/winger and captains for both the Indian Super League side Bengaluru FC and the Indian national football team, Sunil Chhetri also sports a stunning haircut. 5. Sandesh Jhingan © Getty Images Sandesh Jhingan is the defender for Kerala Blasters FC of the Indian Super League and the Indian football team. He is a good example of showing that even messy hair can look really good if you're comfortable in your skin. 6. K.L.Rahul © MensXP K.L Rahul is another cricketer we wish we got grooming lessons from. His look is very cleverly put together, so it looks effortless and clean.
  18. There isn't much that hasn't been said about the greatness of Mahendra Singh Dhoni as a player. He is one of the greatest batsman, knows how to win games for his country, is the most successful captain of the Indian cricket team and probably has the best reflexes as a wicket-keeper too! But MS Dhoni, in person, is equally phenomenal. From running a charity for the betterment of the financially backward students to showing his support to the Indian Army by holding friendly matches, the proceedings from which contribute to the better conditions of the 'jawans' at border, Dhoni has checked all the boxes for the prerequisites of being India's favourite son. Patriotism for the former captain is deep ingested in his heart. Prided with the position of Lieutenant Colonel of the Indian Army, Dhoni had once said: Once my cricket career is over, I would definitely like to serve in the army”. The love for his country seems to be guiding every action of the cricketing star as on Sunday, during the third and final T20I match between India and New Zealand at Hamilton, Dhoni's (almost) reflexive actions prevented the Indian tricolour from staying on the floor. Fan gives flag to Dhoni...!! pic.twitter.com/yxlNzXcsZ4 — Videos Shots (@videos_shots) February 10, 2019 Watch as one of Dhoni's millions of fans was able to rush past the security and onto the field just so he could fall on his idol's feet in love and respect. The fan happened to have a small Indian flag with him which Dhoni instantly picked up as the fan dove to the cricketer's feet, preventing the disrespect it would have meant. What's more is that while other sportspersons get finicky about fans running towards when with an object (which is totally understandable), Dhoni greeted the fan in white properly before he ran away clearly overflowing with joy as the security guard followed him in pursuit. Used to praising MSD for something or the other almost every single day, people once again took to Twitter, this time, to commend Dhoni's patriotic gesture: Dhoni never keep Flag on his helmet as he had to put it down for sometimes sums up this â£ðð»!!

  19. Even on days when our brave jawans are not risking their lives to protect us, they are still saving lives with their selfless and heartwarming gestures. This incident about a CRPF jawan is from one of those days. Constable Rajkamal, from the 133 Battalion of CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force), is the nation's hero just like every other soldier who puts his life on the line to ensure our safety. But, now he's become the internet's hero as well, after a photo of him donating blood for an injured naxal was posted online. Reuters Reportedly, the Naxal was injured in Jharkhand recently, during an exchange of fire with troops of 209 Commando Battalion for Resolute Action (CoBRA). Post the shootout, the man was immediately rushed to Ranchi's Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences hospital, where the doctors said that the patient needed blood. So, Constable Rajkamal readily agreed to donate his blood. Why? Because he "considered his duty to help a fellow Indian in need." Rajkamal told The Pioneer, "I did what I had to on humanitarian grounds. We have had many clashes in the past, but that doesn't mean that I will have a personal grudge against them. They are our fellow Indians after all." EPITOME OF BENEVOLENCE: CT Rajkamal of CRPF donated blood to save the life of a Naxal who suffered grievous injuries during the encounter which took place when the Naxals attacked a team of 209 CoBRA. Rajkamal said that he considered his duty to help a fellow Indian in need. pic.twitter.com/VNnIi8Qpub — ð®ð³CRPFð®ð³ (@crpfindia) February 5, 2019 We salute Constable Rajkamal and his spirit. If people start thinking the way he does, the world can become a better place to live in. Like the tweet reads, it is indeed an 'Epitome of Benevolence." People on Twitter can't stop showering praises for CT Rajkamal. Unparallel example of high human values https://t.co/x0eR4i2osI — Salil dudi (@DudiSalil) February 6, 2019 This is unheard ever and unprecedented.

  20. When you reach the level at which cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli are right now, you are allowed to have expensive hobbies like collecting extremely luxurious and limited edition rides. These cricketers not only have the craving for some of the finest cars in the world by also the money to fulfil their dreams. Here are some of the fanciest rides owned by star Indian cricketers: 1. MS Dhoni © Ferrari Mahendra Singh Dhoni's love for superbikes is unparalleled. But the cricketer is also a sucker for SUVs, American Muscle and Italian stallions. Having owned Hummer H2 and the GMC Sierra 3500HD, Dhoni's car collection is massive. But the ride he really fawns over is the extremely powerful Ferrari 599 GTO with a top speed of 335 kph and a V12 engine roaring under the hood. What's unique about Dhoni's GTO is that the car may be a gift for the skipper who led the team to the 2011 World Cup victory. There were only 599 pieces of the Italian beauty that were made by Ferrari and Dhoni's was even more special as it had the Indian tricolour painted in the front. Price In India: N/A 2. Sachin Tendulkar © Reuters Truly passionate about his rides, Sachin Tendulkar's garage has been home to almost all the iconic rides, be it a Maruti or the Nissan GT-R. However, the fanciest ride owned by the God of cricket has to be equally divine. We are talking about the 1499cc beast you might have seen in the Tom Cruise starrer 'Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol'. The BMW i8 is Sachin's favourite ride and we can see why. In an interview with Hormazd Sorabjee, Tendulkar says that he loves to drive the car, especially early in the morning when there aren't a lot of people on the road because the car is a “traffic stopper”. Price In India: Rs. 2.25 - 3.3 Cr* 3. Virat Kohli View this post on Instagram The new audi R8 . Its a BEAUTY. Iam blown away. What a brilliant machine. And so stunning as well. ðððð»#audi#beauty#beast. A post shared by Virat Kohli (@virat.kohli) on Feb 3, 2016 at 4:46am PST Ever since his childhood, Indian captain Virat Kohli has shown a lot of interest and passion towards Audi, the German automobile manufacturing company. With an already vast collection of extremely (extremely) expensive cars, Kohli boasts an 'all-Audi' collection which includes SUVs like Audi Q7, Audi S6, Audi A8L W12 Quattro and Audi R8 V10. However, the ride that Kohli would claim to be his show-stopper is the Audi R8 LMX which the star bought in 2015. With a top speed of 320 kph and 570 horsepower and torque of 398 lb-ft. Price In India: Rs. 2.97 Cr. Onwards 4. Suresh Raina © Instagram/Suresh Raina From small cars like Mini Coopers to literal giants like Range Rovers, Suresh Raina is a man of many tastes. Like an ideal son, Raina also gifted a blue Mercedes-Benz GLE 350D for his parents in November 2017. Having said that, Raina has admitted that the Porsche Boxster Limited Edition that he bought in 2013, on the occasion of his father's birthday, is the car he is most fond of. The got the car painted yellow as it represented his IPL team, Chennai Super Kings. The Porsche Boxster is a two-seater which consists of a 3436cc engine with maximum power noted at 315bhp@6700rpm. Price In India: Rs. 1.1 Cr.* 5. Yuvraj Singh © Bentley Nothing short of going nuclear on the field, Yuvraj Singh has been an absolute beast when it came to hitting the ball out of the park during his prime. His love for automobiles has been well documented and he has, on numerous occasions, said that collecting expensive cars has been his true passion. The fact that his mother has forbidden him from riding bikes made him focus only on cars. Not specific to a particular brand, Singh owns a BMW X6 M, a BMW M3 Convertible, an Audi Q5 and a Land Rover Discovery Sport for casual outings to the beach or maybe even the barbershop. But when Yuvi is really feeling it, the big guns come out. Reported to have bought a Lamborghini Murcielago LP 640-4, powered by a 6.5-litre V12 petrol engine and 640 horsepower. For more classier times, Singh brings out his Bentley Continental Flying Spur, the epitome of luxury. With a shiny black exterior and blood-red interiors, Singh's Bentley is nothing short of royalty in its own and is the most expensive car in his backyard. It is believed that former Indian opener Virender Sehwag also owns the same ride. Price In India: Rs. 3.22 - 3.8 Cr*
  21. Back in 2018, a depleted Indian team snatched victory from the jaws of defeat against Bangladesh in the Nidahas Trophy final in Sri Lanka. That match will always be remembered for two things: Dinesh Karthik's batting and Vijay Shankar's struggles. While Karthik turned the tide in India's favour with a match-winning knock, Shankar's sluggish innings almost cost his side the game and trophy. Since then, a lot of time has passed, but cricket fans still won't let poor Shankar catch a break. Every time he comes on to bat or sprints in to bowl, social media trolls patiently wait for the Indian allrounder to stutter in a bid to remind him of his Nidahas Trophy debacle. In the first Twenty20 International (T20I) against New Zealand, Shankar had a decent outing, scoring 27 runs off 18 deliveries. But, even before he could face the first delivery, trolls had already started taking a dig at him for his ascension at the No. 3 slot. And then, when India lost the match by 80 runs, there was no surprise to see him drawing flak alongside his teammates. Why is Vijay Shankar playing today, and why is he batting at no.3? ðð #NZvIND #INDvNZ pic.twitter.com/OTa05HAqWz — Come On Dhoni ðð®ð³ (@madam_jadeja) February 6, 2019 On 8th February, as India faced the Kiwis in a must-win clash at the Eden Park in Auckland, Shankar had his critics eat their own words with a brilliant showing in almost all departments of the game. While he wasn't asked to bowl by stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma, Shankar had his say in the game with a brilliant fielding effort. In the 19th over of the New Zealand innings, the hosts were looking to accelerate the scoring rate with Ross Taylor (42) raring to go at the Indian bowlers. But, Taylor's dreams of reaching his fifty and improving the total of his side were crushed by Shankar's bullet throw from the deep. The final delivery of the penultimate over saw Mitchell Santner (7) pushing the ball towards long-on for a single. But, amid a desperate need to amass as many runs as possible, Taylor tried to sneak in a second run and would've surely succeeded if it wasn't for Shankar's brilliant throw. As Taylor sprinted for the second run, Shankar fired in a quick throw that caught the Kiwi batsman short at the crease. While Shankar's direct hit resulted in a crucial wicket for India, credit also goes to Bhuvneshwar Kumar whose brilliantly anticipated his teammate's throw to hit the stumps. After producing a brilliant run-out, Shankar also impressed with his brief knock of 14 runs that came off just eight deliveries. But, it was arguably his 'bullet throw' that had cricket fans singing his praise.

  22. There are some things which every Indian guy will relate to. If you've grown up in an Indian household, watch this video and tell us whether or not you relate with these things too...
  23. Putting on mass is every dude's ultimate gym dream. But as usual, it's easier dreamt than done. Growing muscle naturally is a task and the truth is that most men fail at doing it. However, here is how you CAN do it: Ditch the hard work and do the smart work. Mentioned below are some points that you absolutely shouldn't do if you are serious about building a good physique: 1) Doing Too Much Volume â â â â â â â â The first mistake one makes is doing too much volume. Volume (sets x load x reps), your total workload, is the key to muscle growth, but doing too much actually hinders recovery and will stop your progress. Most people benefit from ~10-20 sets/muscle/week. Your actual volume depends on various individual factors like age, training experience, genetics, etc. © Pixabay 2) Doing Junk Volume Going along with too much volume is not going hard enough on each set. If you have 4 reps left in each set, you will be able to do much more volume because each set is so damn easy. I recommend doing each set ~1-2 reps from failure but sometimes more, sometimes less.â â â â â â â â â 3) No Structured plan If you don't have a plan and just walk into a gym, sure you may make progress. But that doesn't mean your progress can't be better. When you have a plan, you reduce guesswork and can manage variables better. 4) Training All Muscles Once Per Week â â â â â â That's called a bro split. It is okay to start your training with it, but it's not ideal when it comes to overtime progress. Not only do they leave gains on the table by only stimulating muscle protein synthesis in major muscles 1 time per week, but they also allow people with faster rates of fitness decay to experience detraining. © Thinkstock 5) Chasing The Pump Via Lightweights Progressive overload means you do more work, and thus more volume, over time. Getting a pump causes muscle growth, but you will reach a point at which you have to increase the load/reps. Hence focus on doing more volume over time and save pump work for the end of your workouts. 6) Not Applying A Wide Range Of Rep Ranges Lastly, scientific research has shown that muscle growth can happen in a variety of rep ranges. Training in rep ranges outside of 8-12 reps can help you train different capacities and help push for progressive overload. So you can split your training in a broad spectrum from 3-30 reps.

  24. Whey protein is the most common supplement in the fitness industry, and supplement companies have flooded the market with their strategies to sell their premium whey protein product. Trainers with less knowledge in nutrition are going crazy behind whey protein and treating it like some magical supplement. Some trainers even sell it to their clients and make money out of it. Whey protein is nothing but a convenience protein source food and it's the easiest way to ingest protein in your body. Here are a few things you should know: 1) Consuming Only Whey Protein Will Not Build Muscle © Thinkstock Images Most of the fitness folks think consuming whey protein will give them magical results in a week's time, but that's not entirely true. Protein builds, repairs and maintains muscle in your body but it only helps you to grow when you lift weights, put mechanical tension on your muscles and hit your total daily protein intake every day and overtime. Whey protein can help you complete your daily protein intake if it's hard for you to complete it from other sources of protein. 2) Whey Protein Isn't Only For Bodybuilders © Thinkstock Images Yes, this is true. Whey protein is just a convenience protein source food and it can be consumed by anyone who wants to complete their daily protein intake. You don't have to be a bodybuilder or lift weights to consume it. It has a great taste and makes every dessert yummy. You can add a scoop of whey in your ice cream, smoothie, cake, custard, etc. You get a whopping serving of 25-30g of protein per scoop. 3) Whey Protein Is A Natural Food Source © Thinkstock images Hell yeah, you read that right! Whey protein comes from cow milk. When your mother makes paneer at home the leftover whitish liquid which she throws away, is whey. The supplement companies restore the whitish liquid and process it through filtration and other processing methods to make whey concentrates and isolates. So yeah, it is not something medicinal or artificial being given to you. It is just a processed dairy product. Much like your cheese or ice-cream!

  25. After a clinical performance in the ODI Series against New Zealand recently, the Indian team stumbled to a heavy defeat in the first T20 against the Kiwis. A Kohli-less Indian side managed to score just 139 runs in response to New Zealand's 219 and eventually lost the match by 80 runs, registering their biggest defeat in T20I in terms of margin of loss. The Men in Blue came into the match with a changed lineup from the ODI series, playing all three wicket-keepers, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, and MS Dhoni together. Both the Pandya brothers were also included in the squad, but the biggest shocker was the choice of plaVijayvIjay Shankar at one-down. Lower down the order, the in-form duo of Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav was overlooked as well. © Twitter@blackcaps Rohit Sharma's choice of opting to field first clearly didn't pan out well for the visitors. The bowlers were the first ones to confront their worst nightmare by conceding 219 runs. Hardik Pandya was taken for 51 in his quota of four overs, a personal record. It was then the batsmen who were bundled out well short. Dhoni high-scored with 39, but it was far from enough. All in all, Team India was completed dominated by the hosts in all departments, who were the better team on the day by a big margin. After the disappointing result, Indian fans, as expected, went all out on Twitter to express their dismay: #NZvInd Women Indian team all out in 19.1 overs, lost by 23 runs Men Indian team all out in 19.2 overs, lost by 81 runs Ravi Shastri: Hamare chore choriyo se km hai ke? — DR.
