  1. A couple of weeks ago, the Indian Premier League finished on a high with Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians winning the championship for a record fourth time. Lasith Malinga's final over heroics and an unpredictable bowling spell not only shocked Chennai Super Kings but also saved the match for the MIPaltan. With the stakes so high and the entire season on the line, players, team owners and fans from both sides were sitting at the edge of their seats during the final moments of the game. We even saw the MI team owner, Nita Ambani, chant her famous mantra just seconds before Malinga bowled that slower final delivery that won them the title. Curious as we were, we got in touch with Ambani's pandit, Chandra Shekar Sharma, to know whether the team and its owners received some supernatural assistance in the game and here's what he said: “It was a perfect stage for an IPL final with an intense feeling about the fate of the game, but I knew that Mumbai (Indians) had the potential to handle such a situation.” “We do the 'Chandi paath' ahead of every match and yesterday, we performed it during the entire match, until Malinga's final ball. It is lord Durga's 'paath' and is performed in order to enhance one's luck. It gives you the power and the energy to do something in the way that it was meant to.” So, it was obvious that we had to contact Pandit Sharma and know his thoughts on Virat Kohli-led Indian cricket team and their ICC World Cup 2019 journey, which begins 5th June 2019 against South Africa. Here's what he said to the MensXP Hindi team about India's chances of winning their third World Cup: "The expectation of winning the World Cup 2019 is very high if the Indian cricket team's performance, team bonding and planets and constellations are high.” "This colour is absolutely right for the Indian team with blue jerseys. This color is a symbol of the sky, which has no limit. It is very lucky for Team India,” he added. However, he clarified that the talks of planets and constellations are mostly for boosting the athletes' motivation and morale and that there is nothing more important than the Indian cricketers' hard work and efforts that they put in all year long which results in their success internationally. The athletes (and the fans) are free to choose to believe in it, or not. Pandit ji also put up a major disclaimer: “Do not take my words as a prophecy.” You can read the full interview, here.
  2. 'Necessity is the mother of invention'. This honestly seems like some ancient desi proverb at this point because it exactly applies to 'jugaad' and no one in the world does that better than Indians. If there's a problem, there's always a solution, even if it doesn't look like one. I've always said that if it's stupid and it works, it's not stupid, and looks like even Anand Mahindra agrees. He's always pretty active on Twitter admiring or sharing new stuff and this time he decided to share what looks like a Whatsapp forward video just because it was that innovative. What do you do when you don't have an excavator but just a 'charpai' or a 'khatiya'? Well, here it is- I think the phrase 'Necessity is the mother of invention' was invented by Indians! Here's a new product our Farm & Construction sectors will have to consider as a replacement for an excavator: A 'Khatiya-vator'. #whatsappwonderbox pic.twitter.com/av3qNdIAHd — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) May 21, 2019 Well, that's pretty cool. The most surprising part for me is someone like Anand Mahindra scouting through all the Whatsapp messages and videos he recieves to find stuff like that. Am i going to hell for laughing at this? pic.twitter.com/R5HSnSc14l — Harsha ð®ð³ (@SriNow) May 21, 2019 Someone replied with more innovations. Our farmers have invented one more than one ......

And the interedting thing is that this cooler gives much cooling than a symphony cooler. And it works with solar energy saves electricity bill. — Viren Sharma (@SonuSha7409) May 21, 2019 Yep. Only we Indians can find another use for a 'Khatiya' in the daytime like thisðð — Charuhas (@charuhasmujumd1) May 21, 2019 Why does it sound like something Doofenshmirtz would make? 'Khatiya-vator' sounds cool ð — Harleen Kaur (@HarleenParmar) May 21, 2019 Someone literally gave the definition of jugaad. An instant solution to the problem raised by the demand of situations. Moreover the solution provided by an instant action may not be the permanent solution but good enough to meet the present. May be called "Juggat" in sanskrit and "Jugadd" in hindi — Abhrankash (@abhrankashdas) May 21, 2019
  3. After a nail-biting match between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings at Hyderabad's Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, the IPL 2019 came to an end with Rohit Sharma's team lifting the coveted trophy for a record fourth time. That last-ball thriller was literally everything. © Twitter While Mumbai Indians fans are dancing with joy and celebrating this victory, others are busy debating whether the team members had anything to do with the victory. I know it sounds lame, but these tweets have people convinced that it's not Rohit Sharma or Hardik Pandya or Jasprit Bumrah, it's actually Mumbai Indians' owner Nita Ambani whose prayers made the team clinch the IPL 2019 trophy. © Twitter In case you missed it, a 'tensed' and praying Nita Ambani has now caught people's attention and has been doing rounds on social media, since last night. Nita Ambani was spotted praying in the later half of the match, especially in the last over and now that her team won, people want to know what 'mantra' she was chanting.

  4. I have been following 'The Kings' ever since they made their explosive entry into the popular US reality show 'World Of Dance' this year, and started blowing minds with their unbelievably high-octane choreography. Seriously, believe me when I say you have not seen anything like them before. It's like a mix of dance, martial arts, theatre, warfare, sorcery and a few more incredible ingredients which results in an epic routine, which on more than one occasion, has left the panel of judges clutching their hearts and throats. via GIPHY The panel, consisting of Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo and Derek Hough, has never shied away from showing their admiration for The Kings, who have been giving them a taste of Bollywood and India through their electrifying performances. via GIPHY It came as absolutely no surprise to me when The Kings made it to the finals of the show. But yes, it did take a while to process that the boys, who had shot to fame in the third season of 'India's Got Talent', had actually won the dance show and the prize money of a whopping million dollars! The 14-member squad aged between 17-27 collapsed in a heap on the stage and burst into tears as they were clearly shaken by the decision and couldn't believe what just happened. Hugs and tears were all around as the hip-hop crew from Mumbai made India proud on the international stage. via GIPHY Here are some of the best performances by The Kings on the show. Watch and marvel at their brilliance:
  5. 'Avengers: Endgame' is all set to release this week and over 1 million tickets have already been sold in India in just over a day. The number of bookings is already smashing records, according to BookMyShow. The ticketing company saw a peak of 18 tickets being sold every second; which is a big deal for any movie that was released in India. © Marvel Studios Speaking about the audience reception, Ashish Saksena, COO - Cinemas, BookMyShow, said, “With just a few days left for 'Avengers: Endgame' to hit the screens – the excitement around it is palpable. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has a massive fan following across the world and over the years, has emerged as one of the most followed movie franchises in India as well. The prequel - 'Avengers: Infinity War' broke all records and saw the biggest worldwide opening of all times. The concluding part in the franchise - 'Avengers: Endgame' - is creating waves on BookMyShow before its release, with over a million tickets already sold, and we expect the film to break more records as cinemas continue to open the advance bookings.” "Avengers: Endgame' is not just a movie, it's an epic culmination of a decade-long journey which the fans have taken with us across 22 films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The phenomenal interest shown by audiences across the country is a testament of how this is one of the most anticipated movie for the fans and we can't wait for them to watch it. Partnering with BookMyShow has enabled us to reach out to cinema-lovers across the country with their incisive data and analytics gathered from millions of its users,” said Bikram Duggal, Head - Studio Entertainment, Disney India.

The movies will be released in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu for the Indian audiences. The movie is set to release on 26th April starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Brie Larson.
  6. The Time's list of Most Influential People)is out and obviously, there are a few Indians who're making the country proud by being among so many incredible people from all over the world. Last year, Deepika Padukone, Virat Kohli, Ola co-founder Bhavish Aggarwal, and Microsoft's Indian-born CEO Satya Nadella were named in the list and it was great to see so. This year, Mukesh Ambani and lawyers Arundhati Katju and Menaka Guruswamy, who quashed Section 377, have made it to the list. Along with them, Indian-American comedian and TV host Hasan Minhaj is also part of the 100 Most Influential People. Anand Mahindra took charge of writing about Mukesh Ambani) and had nothing but praises for the business tycoon. He talked about Dhirubhai Ambani, Jio, and how Mukesh Ambani did keep all the promises he made. He said, “Mukesh Ambani's father Dhirubhai was a visionary in Indian business, whose Reliance Industries conglomerate pioneered ways of targeting global scale. But Ambani's vision is now even more ambitious than that of the father whose blessings he unfailingly invokes at the launch of each initiative. The scale of his Reliance Jio mobile-data network, which has already connected over 280 million people in India with low-cost 4G, is impressive by any standard. But what is truly jaw-dropping is the way it will allow Reliance to potentially dominate a staggering array of new businesses. When its enormous retail division is married to the Jio network for e-commerce, it will give Amazon a run for its money. When the media entities Ambani owns begin leveraging Jio, he could create India's default entertainment destination. The mind boggles at the possibilities.” Lastly, he said, “Back in 2003, Ambani promised Indians in a well-known advertising tagline that his company would “put the world in the palm of your hand.” It won't be long before he delivers on that promise.” Coming to Arundhati Katju and Menaka Guruswamy, the badass lawyers responsible for the decriminalisation of homosexuality and quashing 157-year-old Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code. Writing about them and praising them was none other than Priyanka Chopra. She said, “'I am what I am so take me as I am,' said the Chief Justice of India as the Supreme Court struck down Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code in a unanimous vote. An outdated legacy of the British colonization of India, Section 377 rendered all sexual activities “against the order of nature” punishable by law. This landmark judgment, overturning a 157-year-old law, was the outcome of a long-term campaign orchestrated by two amazing public-interest litigators, Arundhati Katju and Menaka Guruswamy. The fight has been hard. The LGBTQ+ community has battled on both legal and social fronts for decades-—for their fundamental rights, for privacy, for dignity, for safety and for love.” She went on, “Armed with a well-planned strategy that went beyond their well-researched legal arguments, Arundhati and Menaka became beacons of hope for the Indian LGBTQ+ community. Their perseverance and commitment led an entire community to a historic win by humanizing their struggles and giving them the freedom to love. As the Chief Justice said, “Constitutional morality cannot be martyred at the altar of social morality.” Arundhati and Menaka have helped take a giant step for LGBTQ rights in the world's largest democracy. In their committed fight for justice, they have shown us that we as a society must continue to make progress, even after laws are changed, and that we must make an effort to understand, accept and love. It is who we are as people.
  7. As smartphones and mobile data have become both cheaper and faster, Indians have started chugging data like never before. From watching Netflix in public to churning out TikTok videos, there's an influx in internet usage in the past few years. Now according to McKinsey's latest report on Indian online trends, Indians are spending the highest amount of time on social media in the world. Yes, in the WORLD! © McKinsey The report noted that Indians spend more time on social media than online users in China or the US. Apparently, Indians are spending about 17 hours per week on social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and others. It's a world record, which we think, has been set due to access to affordable smartphones and cheap cellular data (read: Jio) . India is also just behind China when it comes to app downloads. As you can see in the report, over 12.3 billion smartphone apps have been downloaded by Indians in 2018. © Pexels After Indonesia, India is said to be digitizing faster than every other mature and emerging economy across 30 dimensions of digital adoption since 2014. McKinsey's report is extremely detailed, and it talks about a lot of other accomplishments of India in the digital space. Check out McKinsey's report right here.
  8. There is a first time for everything and this time, Delhi Capitals (DC), surprised everyone by being the first team to post a 200+ total in the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League. Posting a mammoth total of 213 in their share of 20 overs, Delhi comfortably defeated the Mumbai Indians (MI) by 37 runs in their debut match of the season. But under the stardom of Delhi, a star performer for Mumbai got lost somewhere. Yes, we are talking of none other than Mitchell McClenaghan, who produced a brilliant bowling performance last night, to build the game for his team, but as we know that cricket is a team game, he couldn't do much on his own. © Twitter/IPL Taking out both, Prithvi Shaw (opener) and Shreyas Iyer (captain) by the fifth over, he did set a solid base for his team to make good on. Unfortunately, the middle-over bowlers, the Pandya brothers (Krunal Pandya and Hardik Pandya, Rasikh Salam and Ben Cutting couldn't hold on to the flying start provided by the Kiwi and gave away runs at a staggering rate, which led Delhi to this humongous total. And before he could make a comeback, Rishabh Pant had already settled in well and stole the show from the MI Paltan. Taking three wickets at the cost of 40 runs in his quota of four overs, the New Zealand pacer was the ace bowler for MI. It won't be wrong to say that he was quite relieved from the pressure as Jasprit Bumrah was in his corner. © Twitter/IPL But now, as we await the final update on Bumrah's injury which he sustained while diving to his left to collect the ball on the last delivery of the innings, McClenaghan would most probably have to carry the baton ahead as the season progresses.
  9. Arguably one of the most consistent teams in the history of the tournament, Mumbai Indians (MI) continues to remain a top contender going into the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Being the most valuable IPL franchise with a brand value of $106 million, MI always made sure that it stands on the expectations of their fans. They registered their name in the history books as they became the first team to win the IPL title for a record third time. Having a knack of making a comeback and winning matches, MI will certainly look forward to break their title-tie with CSK and bag their record fourth trophy. For their road to glory, here are the top five players to look forward too: Jasprit Bumrah Credit: Instagram - Mumbai Indians IPL is all about spotting Indian talent and giving them the platform, and Jasprit Bumrah is yet another prodigy of IPL. John Wright not only did MI favour but to the Indian Cricket, by spotting spotted the young gun in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy before drafting him into the squad. With time Bumrah has shown continuous improvement on both domestic and international level and now has become best bowler in the world. Being the second highest wicket-taker for MI last season, Bumrah will be all geared up to show his extraordinary skills for his home side once again. Rohit Sharma Credit: Instagram - Mumbai Indians One of the most successful captain in the league, Rohit Sharma, has profoundly proven his worth time and again. Playing an important role in all the title victories and bringing the team back from downfalls, Rohit has been a great tactician in his teams glorious run. Leading his team from the front, the right-handed batsman has the third highest runs in the history of the league and stands on the same position in his scorings of last season. Entering this season with quite a young team, Sharma ji would be expected to give a tough time to their title counterpart, CSK. Yuvraj Singh Credit: Instagram - Mumbai Indians Not having quite a season for the past few years, Yuvraj Singh still manages to get his name in the in Mumbai's list. We know its a long shot but one thing we all would agree with is that once this man starts hitting, there is no coming back for any team. We saw that short stint with both Delhi Daredevils (Delhi Capitals) and Kings XI Punjab in the past season where he performed in a few matches. Hoping to see vintage Yuvraj Singh back is a dream worth living, which not only entertains us fans but will also help in rejuvenating his career. Mayank Markande Credit: Instagram - Mumbai Indians The young leg spinner from Punjab has proved to be a big asset to the Mumbai Indians squad. Dodging the batsman with his unorthodox bowling style, he has impressed one and all with his consistency and his success in the last season. Bagging 15 wickets in 14 matches, Markande has more or less fixed his place in the playing XI. And the thing with leg spinners is that if they strike, they can take down the whole opposition within minutes, and we hope Markande does the same for MI. Hardik Pandya Credit: Instagram - Mumbai Indians The most stylish player in the MI dugout is known to be Hardik Pandya, but the most impressive thing about him is that he made sure that he never let his style affect his game and he even proved the same in the last season. Scoring a decent total of 260 in his 14 matches, he took everyone by surprise by taking 18 wickets and that too with the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Mitchell Mclenegan and Mustafizur Rehman being in the team.

    Mumbai Indians

    Arguably one of the most consistent teams in the history of the tournament, Mumbai Indians (MI) continue to remain a top contender going into the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). They won their first IPL title after defeating tournament favourites Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 23 runs at the Eden Gardens in the 2013 edition. Their bid to successfully defend the title in 2014 was cut short after they crashed out of the tourney in the Play-off stages. But, the 2015 edition saw them repeating their 2013 heroics, defeating Chennai at Eden Gardens by 41 runs to claim their second IPL title. With two titles in three years, Mumbai didn't extend Chennai's hunt for the elusive third IPL title, but also established themselves as one of the teams to beat in the competition's history. With Chennai suspended in lieu to the spot-fixing case, Mumbai made full use of the absence of their arch-rivals and, in 2017, they claimed their third IPL trophy and became the first franchise to win three titles in the history of the tournament. The Mukesh Ambani-owned Mumbai side defeated Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) by one run in the summit clash to etch their names in the history books. © BCCL But, for a side that has won three titles, Mumbai failed to live up to the expectations of their fans. With eight losses in 14 matches, Mumbai failed to reach the Play-offs with just 12 points and a fifth-place finish to show for their efforts. In a bid to get back on track, Mumbai splurged Rs 7.60 crore at the 2019 IPL Auctions. Having retained their core players, Mumbai roped in Barinder Singh Sran (Rs 3.4 cr), Lasith Malinga (Rs 2 cr), Yuvraj Singh (Rs 2 cr), Anmolpreet Singh (Rs 80 lakh), Pankaj Jaiswal (Rs 20 lakh), Rasikh Dar (Rs 20 lakh) for the latest edition. Going into the new season, Mumbai looks balanced and well-settled in team composition. Mumbai have a lot to choose from when it comes to the top-order as the likes of Rohit Sharma, Surya Kumar Yadav, Evin Lewis, Quinton de Kock and Ishan Kishan are more than capable of getting their side going early on. The addition of Yuvraj and availability of Kieron Pollard should fix their middle-order woes that hampered their chances last season. In the Pandya brothers - Hardik and Krunal, Mumbai have fruitful all-round options. © BCCL The likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Mitchell McClenaghan, Barinder Sran and Jason Behrendorff should give them plenty of options to choose from for their pace attack. Their spin-bowling department might appear inexperienced, but Mayank Markande's success last season and his recent stint with Team India should have that area covered for Mumbai this season. With Chennai matching their feat of winning three IPL titles last season, Mumbai will be eager to surge forward with a potential title in the offering this season. Squad: Rohit Sharma (c), Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Quinton de Kock (wk), Ben Cutting, Jayant Yadav, Lasith Malinga, Anmolpreet Singh, Mayank Markande, Mitchell McClenaghan, Ishan Kishan (wk), Aditya Tare, Evin Lewis, Jason Behrendorff, Suryakumar Yadav, Adam Milne, Rahul Chahar, Siddesh Lad, Yuvraj Singh, Barinder Sran, Pankaj Jaswal, Rasikh Salam, Anukul Roy.
  11. Arguably one of the most iconic teams in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Mumbai Indians struggled to get going despite boasting of a star-studded in the early years of the tournament. The team was knocked out of the tournament in the league stages in 2008 and 2009, then came close to winning the title in 2010 before losing the final. The next two years saw them reaching the Play-off stages, but the IPL trophy was still nowhere in sight. Their hunt for the elusive IPL title finally came to an end in 2013 when they defeated Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the summit clash. Since then, Mumbai have claimed two IPL trophies in five years to notch up joint most title wins in the history of the competition. But, last season was far from what you'd ideally expect from a three-time IPL champion like Mumbai. © Twitter With eight losses in 14 matches, Mumbai failed to reach the Play-offs with just 12 points and fifth position to show for their efforts. One of the major reasons for Mumbai's downfall last season was their middle-order whose instability was thoroughly exploited by the opposition teams. The middle-order batsmen failed to step up in crunch situations which reflected in Mumbai's majority of last-over losses last season. But, there is nothing like learning from your mistakes and making necessary changes to avoid them in future. And, Mumbai did exactly that when they brought Yuvraj Singh at his base price of Rs 1 crore at the 2019 IPL Auctions. And, while many raised eyebrows at Yuvi's signing, Mumbai's director of operations, Zaheer Khan, believes his former teammate will have a big impact this season. Start your Monday by watching @YUVSTRONG12 walk down the Wankhede stairs and talk about the 2011 @ICC World Cup ðð#CricketMeriJaan #OneFamily pic.twitter.com/pNysQP5BPp — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) March 18, 2019 "Bringing in Yuvraj in the squad has been a boost because of the match-winning ability he has. In our discussions leading up to the auctions, we had identified that we need experienced batsmen who can control the game in the middle. Since Rohit has decided to open, we need that experience in the middle order and who's better than someone like Yuvraj Singh," Zaheer revealed. ð£ "MI has done a phenomenal job in giving so many cricketers to #TeamIndia" ð®ð³ ð¹ | Full pre-season press conference: https://t.co/kERZNTZgC3#CricketMeriJaan @ImRo45 pic.twitter.com/74OkSlStQS — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) March 20, 2019 With Yuvi in the fold, Mumbai will have an experienced campaigner who is more than capable of steering through the middle-order. Whether Yuvraj will be able to repay the faith shown by Mumbai in him this season or not, the Rohit Sharma-led brigade will surely be eager to make amends for the last season as they kickstart their campaign against revamped Delhi Capitals on 24th March.
  12. Whatever PM Modi says or does, it trends. That's the rule of Twitter in India. So of course, him launching a new campaign was bound to be talked about, no surprise there. PM Modi launched a 'Main Bhi Chowkidar' campaign this morning and shared a video and message on Twitter. Your Chowkidar is standing firm & serving the nation. But, I am not alone. Everyone who is fighting corruption, dirt, social evils is a Chowkidar. Everyone working hard for the progress of India is a Chowkidar. Today, every Indian is saying-#MainBhiChowkidar — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 16, 2019 The video is basically a song with lyrics showcasing the government's initiatives. In the tweet, he says that today, everyone's a Chowkidar and well, now people are tweeting #MainBhiChowkidar. This particular hashtag soon became the top worldwide trend on Twitter and his tweet alone has thousands and thousands of replies, retweets, and likes. Soon, people started tweeting using the hashtag saying every Indian is a chowkidar today because “Everyone who is fighting corruption, dirt, social evils is a Chowkidar, everyone working hard for the progress of India is a Chowkidar.” Now everyone's proud to be a chowkidar. Proud to be a Chowkidar. #MainBhiChowkidar https://t.co/XXwo5hxkrb — B.S.

  13. Whether you are a casual health enthusiast, sportsperson, athlete, powerlifter or hardcore gym freak, you all know the importance of adequate protein in your daily diet. While the average person may not need as much protein as a sportsperson or hardcore gym freak, that doesn`t mean that they are getting optimal amounts of protein in their diet. © Thinkstock Images International society of sports nutrition recommends 1.4-2gm of protein per kg of bodyweight for athletes. This means 112gm -160gm of protein a day for a 80kg athlete. This requirement can go even higher depending on these things: 1. If someone is training hard frequently along with­­­­­­­ a job that requires much physical work. 2. If someone trying to lose fat without losing much muscle. 3. To improve body composition. 4. If someone using Steroids (PEDs). First priority to get all this protein should be from real foods which have complete amino acid profile such as chicken, mutton, lamb, fish, cheese, eggs or milk. People who are vegetarian are left with only limited options .On top of that if they have a busy lifestyle where they can`t eat as much solid food will have to rely on protein powder supplements. Another situation where reliance on protein powders (Whey isolate, Soy, Pea,Rice) may increase is when someone is suffering from “Lactose intolerance”. It is estimated that 60-70 % of Indians are lactose intolerant with south Indians being more affected (66.6%) than north Indians (27.4%). Lactose intolerance is a condition where the affected person is unable to digest a sugar called lactose present in Dairy products. As a result, affected person gets bloating, painful stomach cramps, gas or vomiting. While whey concentrate may have some amount of lactose present in it, whey isolate reduces it to much lower level which most people may get comfortable with. Even better option for people with lactose intolerance is using protein powders made from Soy, Pea, Rice or a blend of any of the three. They are again considered high quality proteins. -As a pure vegetarian who`s not using any Performance enhancing drugs, it becomes really challenging to get below 10% body fat without losing muscle mass. And any athlete who has worked hard day and night (with training and diet) to achieve that few pounds of muscle will not want to lose it very easily. Getting to extremely low body fat levels (Stage/photo-shoot condition) require calorie restriction and very little amount of carbs and fats in diet. However, most vegetarian high quality protein sources will also give you quite high amount of carbs and fats along with it, which is fine when you are maintaining or bulking but not ideal when cutting. © Thinkstock Images Every 3gm of protein from milk in 100ml will also give you 5-6gm of carbs with it. Now do the math of how much carbs you will be getting in order to complete 30gm of protein milk. The same amount of carbs you can better get from solid food when on a restrictive diet to remain full for longer. Similarly trying to get 18gm of protein from cheese will also give you 25gm of fat with it. While the same amount of protein you can get from casein protein scoop giving you almost negligible to 2gm of fat. People who are non vegetarians or eat eggs can do a cut/fat loss protocol quite easily since they can consume lean protein sources such as egg whites and chicken breast having no fat. The same can`t be said for pure vegetarians. I may get a little hate in comment section for promoting the usage of protein powders, but you ask yourself “Am I really promoting it or just showing you reality”? © Thinkstock Images Have a good day, folks! And stop thinking of protein powders as something taboo or associating it with steroids.

  14. Ahead of the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League, Netflix India has come up with an original docu-series, 'Cricket Fever: Mumbai Indians', that covers the journey of a young but very capable owner in Akash Ambani and an extremely energetic core basis which the MI Paltan is formed. Sleepless nights? Nervous nail biting? Screaming at your screen? If you've experienced any or all of these symptoms you might have Cricket Fever, premieres 1st March. pic.twitter.com/Ujl1tq6Els — Netflix India (@NetflixIndia) February 5, 2019 What begins much like any other cricket-specific documentary with fans highlighting how important and gravitationally pulling the sport is in India, 'Cricket Fever: Mumbai Indians' soon deep-dives into the lives of those individuals that made the franchise come together. The unique and professional relationship being shared by Akash Ambani with mother, Nita Ambani as co-owners of the team as shown throughout the series is refreshing. Taking away a major portion of the responsibilities off his mother's shoulders, Akash has stepped up as an owner who not only cares about picking up the good players during the auction by also tries his best to become one of them during locker room talks, training sessions and meals as they take on the journey that the 2018 IPL really was. From a trip down the memory lane with Hardik and Krunal Pandya to the heartwarming story of Jasprit Bumrah and his proud mother, the series helps the Indian audience get to know their favourite cricketers a little more intimately, a little more personally. Getting to see Rohit Sharma successfully operate as the leader of the team that features athletes coming from different parts of the world, who approach the game a lot differently than his national teammates, says a thousand words about his brilliance not only as a batsman but also a captain and why he is given the role of the leader of the Men in Blue in the absence of Virat Kohli. What is unique about the series is how it did not just casually cruise over the defeats MI went through last year. The process of a team facing disappointment, expressing their emotions fresh after a loss in an open-floor discussion hosted by coach Mahela Jayawardene, motivating each other and getting ready to fight another day, has been beautifully captured by Condé Nast Entertainment (CNE), the studio that produced the series. In essence, even though Mumbai Indians was unable to win the title last year, the base of an organisation as grand as this is built on a lot of experiences and stories that are worth telling and that's exactly what 'Cricket Fever: Mumbai Indians' has conveyed in this 8-episode docu-series.
  15. Indians are not new to the coffee experience, even when a steaming pan of chai remains a common sight at the tea stalls we spot in every nukkad in town. Yet, the narrative around coffee has undergone major developments in the last few years, as a result of which the appreciation for this darkened gold has made its way beyond the southern borders of the country, where it has been ruling over the hearts of people for the longest time. One of the key game changers in bringing about this notable change in how Indians enjoy their coffee is courtesy to to the makers of 'Sleepy Owl', a specially brewed, gourmet coffee brand that was co-founded by Arman Sood, Ashwajeet Singh, and Ajai Thandi in 2016. © Facebook Before the trio introduced Indian coffee drinkers to the rich and novel taste of cold brew coffee, co-founder Arman by his own admission said that, “up until law school he didn't even know coffee was a bean, that had to be roasted, then ground and brewed.” So we wonder how these three young men came across the gold mine of taste and the high of caffeine discreetly guarded by a select few who had discovered this beauty. Ajai's stint at JP Morgan in New York, stirred his love for coffee for the first time, and in the time he ended up spending there, the love turned into a solid affair. So of course he was more than interested when Ashwadeep show the slightest interest in introducing cold-brewed coffee to people back home. Soon Arman joined the dua, and together the kick started 'Sleepy Owl'. © MensXP So from the very beginning the trio had a very simple agenda, “we wanted Indians to have a fantastic coffee experience, but we wanted to bring it to them in a convenient way for them to enjoy it. So that's what Sleepy Owl does - we make very convenient coffee products,” Arman tells MensXP. 'Sleepy Owl' became a 'corporate-household name' when it came to great tasting coffee which could be freshly delivered to their work desks. The bag-in-box format of 'Sleepy Owl' played a huge part in this, its convenience and quirky packing only adding to the brand's offerings. © Facebook But thankfully, even with his academic backgrounds in law, Arman's family was more than supportive of his decision to transition from law to entrepreneurship. But there is one element that makes the co-founders' and Sleepy Owl's journey all the more special, and it's the fact that Sleepy Owl sources its coffee from within the Indian subcontinent. Proud of this fact, Arman tells MensXP that, “being a startup in India, we wanted to be rooted in the spirit of make in India. With India being the 4th largest coffee exporter in the world, we had to go with its fantastic Arabica coffee. We consistently source 100% of our Arabica coffee from Indian farms. © MensXP The makers of Sleepy Owl work with an aim to create delightful customer experience, yet the initial challenge of getting into retail stores did pose a hurdle. The brand decided to make use of social media popularity and built the hype around the brand online first, and followed it up with customer feedback. So once they had taken care of that along with the daily struggle of roasting, grinding and brewing coffee for that perfect blend, they launched on 16th June, 2016. What started in Ashwajeet's home kitchen in Dwarka, soon moved out to a larger facility in South Delhi, and today they are available in 120 stores in Delhi NCR. But that is just not where they want to draw the line. With the projection that coffee industry will be a 5 billion dollar industry by 2020, Sleepy Owl wants to have a very big portion of that pie. © MensXP So for Arman, every budding entrepreneur must keep this in mind that, “entrepreneurship is like jumping off the cliff without a parachute and building it along the way.” But he also adds that don't listen to the naysayers no matter what they say.
  16. In the last five years of his tenure, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is known to have gone out of his way when it comes to holding bilateral talks with India's neighbouring states and their state heads. Be it smoothening out ruffled feathers or boosting the affairs of trade and defence cooperation, PM Modi has tried to work out a lot of matters of national importance with our international brethren. Prime Minister Narendra Modi held talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, in Seoul, earlier today. pic.twitter.com/bGWPQyfeq0 — ANI (@ANI) February 22, 2019 So today when PM Modi was welcomed by the South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Seoul, the Indian Prime Minister took this moment to express his gratitude towards Koreans, who have always been invested in maintaining a healthy relationship with the Indian subcontinent. PM Modi is in South Korea on a two-day visit to strengthen strategic ties between the two countries, and upon his arrival he also unveiled the bust of Mahatma Gandhi at Seoul's Yonsei University, along with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. The Seoul Peace Prize being bestowed upon PM @narendramodi is a matter of great pride for 130 crore Indians. It not only acknowledges the success of PM Modi's progressive policies and reforms but also signals the rise of India on the world stage. pic.twitter.com/fCKB1WjR5O — Amit Shah (@AmitShah) February 22, 2019 However, it is the Seoul Peace Prize that PM Modi was honoured with by the South Korean President that has got the international media talking. PM Modi accepted the honour and the prize, which he dedicated to the countrymen back home. "I believe that this award belongs not to me personally, but to the people of India. The success that India has achieved in the last 5 years is due to aspirations, inspiration & efforts of the people of India. On their behalf, I accept the Award and express my gratitude", said PM Modi after receiving the award. He further added that he wished to donate the prize money to Namami Gange project. The Seoul Peace Prize is dedicated to the people of India & our country's culture of peace and harmony. https://t.co/ymUdug3JYp — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) February 22, 2019 Namani Gange is a 'Clean Ganga' initiative taken up by the Union Government for the “abatement of pollution, conservation and rejuvenation of National River Ganga.” At the same event, PM Modi also touched upon the issue of climate change and terrorism at the event, and urged all the country to come together and fight off terrorism in the light of the recent Pulwama attack. We hope the funds are put to good use, and river Ganga is revived to its full glory at the earliest.
  17. Unlike the earlier popular belief that eggs are meant to be consumed only by bodybuilders, people in India have slowly started including eggs as part of their daily breakfast option. The awareness about general health and fitness amongst people in India is rising and hence, they have started adopting various healthy foods in their lifestyle. However, the myths have also found their place along with the changes in diet, thanks to the social media sharing platforms. People like to share just about anything and everything at its face value without making an effort to do a little research of their own to know the truth. Here below are three popular myths that most Indians believe: 1. Eggs With Blood Spots Are Adulterated And Unsafe To Eat Sometimes, when you crack open an egg, you may find a tiny blood spot on the yolk. Though it's very uncommon, I am sure that you may have experienced this if you eat eggs regularly. Sometimes you may also see a blood stain on the outer shell of the egg. Some people think that it's because of adulteration and that the egg is unsafe to eat. Well, this isn't true at all. These blood spots are caused by the rupturing of tiny blood vessels in the hen's ovaries at the time of ovulation. This is not very common and may happen occasionally during the egg-laying process. The United States Regulatory agencies like USDA clearly states that eggs with blood spots on the surface or on the yolk are safe to consume. © Pixabay 2. Brown Egg Are More Nutritious Remember how our parents use to tell us that brown eggs are 'desi' eggs and are more nutritious than regular white eggs? Well, this is not even remotely true as the colour of the egg depends on the breed of the hen that has given it. In terms of nutrition, both the eggs remain at par with each other. © Pixabay 3. If Eggs Float In Water, It's Not Good For Consumption This is a post that is often seen on various social media platforms. It is suggested that if you dip an egg in water and it starts floating then it's not fit for human consumption. But if the egg settles down at the bottom, then it is safe. This is also not true. It is due to the simple concept of buoyancy that the egg floats. An egg will be able to float in water when its air cell has enlarged sufficiently to keep it buoyant. This just means that the egg is a little old. If you want to check whether the egg is fit for consumption or not, you will have to actually crack it open and check for any foul odour or abnormal colour in its yolk.
  18. It felt like smooth sailing for the Indian cricket team as the score read 'Australia 26/2'. Enter Shaun Marsh, who had scored 54 but was caught out by Mohammed Shami off Kuldeep Yadav in the first ODI, and oh, how things changed. The way the wickets were falling for the Indian bowlers, Marsh was presumed to be no more than a small curb in their way. Boy, were they wrong. A brilliant performance from Shaun Marsh to post his 7th ODI hundred!#AUSvIND | @toyota_aus pic.twitter.com/ikonMqRz99 — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 15, 2019 Forgetting the batting woes of his past, especially in the longest format of the game, Marsh looked a new man. Putting up massive partnerships, first with Usman Khawaja (53 runs) and later on with Glenn Maxwell (93 runs), Marsh was reaching for the boundary at will. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav and even debutant Mohammed Siraj were all taken to school as the Aussie batsman hit a total of 11 fours and three sixes in his 131-run innings, which makes it his best innings in Australia till date. The ton is his seventh overall and also makes him the first Australian to score in three digits in any international format of the game, since Marsh had scored 106 in the third ODI in South Africa on 11th November, last year. His performance against India comes at the best possible time, especially when the selectors at Cricket Australia are looking for in-form players to prepare the best team that they can for the upcoming 2019 ICC World Cup. With Australia's best cricketers namely Steve Smith and David Warner having suspended contracts under Cricket Australia for the infamous ball-tampering case against South Africa in March, last year, and Tim Paine's excruciating failure as the skipper during the Border-Gavaskar cup against India, the team is desperately searching for a good leader and Shaun Marsh fits all the categories like a glove. While the Australian fans are head over heels after the batsman's exceptional knock, the Indian fans didn't shy away either from commending his efforts: More than enough.

  19. No offence, but desi Twitter (and not brown twitter, T-Pain) is where it's at! Indian people really do know how to make a joke or a meme out of anything and everything and every year we realize it after laughing throughout the year at the best tweets and then re-living it at the end of the year with a mandatory compilation so everyone can end their year with a laugh. So, here are this year's winners, the tweets that are so funny, you will momentarily forget about the shitty year. Enjoy! 1. A fake accent they acquired just in a week.

  20. We don't know about your travel plans, but three Indians are currently making headlines for their week-long trip that is worth a whopping 10,000 crores. via GIPHY We're not talking about a sequel of 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara'. We're talking about ISRO's most ambitious project, Gaganyaan, whose budget just got a nod of approval by the government today. The three astronauts will be sent into space by 2022. Twitter (For Representation) Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad announced the same at a press conference today, "The Union Cabinet has approved the Gaganyaan project under which a three-member crew will be sent to space for at least seven days." Cabinet approves indigenous human spaceflight programme; Gaganyaan programme to carry 3 member crew for minimum 7 days in space at a total cost of Rs 10k crores. — ANI (@ANI) December 28, 2018 This is said to be India's first manned mission to space and the Rs. 10,000 crore budget includes the cost of technology development, flight hardware and essential infrastructure elements. The announcement of launching a manned mission to space by 2022, was announced on August 15, by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his 72nd Independence Day speech. He also mentioned that with this project, India will become the fourth nation in the league after Russia, the United States and China.
  21. At the time when India's schedule for their Australian tour was announced, everyone in the cricket fraternity knew that it was going to a great contest. And, why not? India were going to lock horns with the Aussies in three T20Is, as many ODIs and four Test matches. While the limited-overs series offered some slam-bang action, all eyes were undoubtedly glued to the much-anticipated duels in Tests. And, after two Tests and with the third one currently in progress, the fact that India and Australia are tied 1-1 goes on show how evenly this series is poised. We've already witnessed batting geniuses of Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli who are currently leading the list of top run-getters in the series and the spin wizardry of Nathan Lyon who is miles ahead in the race of leading wicket-takers. But, apart from some exciting cricket on offer, the four-match Test series has also witnessed some of the most hilarious quips from both the sides. If Rishabh Pant's quirky comments from behind the stumps left everyone in splits, Tim Paine's recent remarks from the same position has once again brought a smile on the faces of cricket fans across the globe. © AP Though Australian cricketers have been infamous for using verbal volleys to unsettle the opposition batsmen, the ongoing series has witnessed an altogether different approach from the home side. Struck with the ball-tampering scandal recently, while the Aussies seem to have minimised their aggression, they have traded explosive comments for quirky jibes - something that reflected in Paine's latest comments. During the second day's play at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Paine was caught on the stump-mic trying to sledge Rohit Sharma. While the Indian batsman was taking guard for the next delivery, the Australian skipper was heard telling his mate at short-leg that it was 'a toss-up between Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians at this time'. "If Rohit hits a six here I'm changing to Mumbai" ð#AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/JFdHsAl84b — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) December 27, 2018 But, it was the comment which followed later, that left everyone in splits. "He has this nice easy swing of the bat. We see him do it all the time for MI. If Rohit hits a six here, I'm changing to Mumbai Indians," Paine was heard saying on the stump-mic before the fielders around him burst into laughter. Tim Paine bantering up a storm right now ððð FOLLOW LIVE https://t.co/0L1sS1X2x0 pic.twitter.com/1OMiKwvUif — Herald Sun Sport (@heraldsunsport) December 27, 2018 And then, he followed it up with, "Is it true Rohit? Did Finchie (Aaron Finch) get you out. To be honest, the hardest two overs I played in domestic cricket last season were from him." While we aren't sure if Paine's remarks unsettled Rohit or not, but the Australian captain got no help from his teammate Peter Siddle who came on as a substitute fielder only to drop the Mumbai batsman on 16 at short fine leg in the 147th over. On the other hand, the cricket fans couldn't stop themselves from expressing their views on Paine's hilarious remarks. All of us to Tim Paine right now: ð¤«#CricketMeriJaan #AUSvIND — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) December 27, 2018 Absolutely engrossing period of play, Rohit Sharma focussing hard as Nathan Lyon tries to weave a web around him n Tim Paine chirping away from behind. great watching.

  22. As the New Year lurks around with all of its glorious promises and opportunities, there comes the need to appreciate the goodness that we experienced in the year that shall bid us goodbye in less than two weeks' time. Every year, we make a ton of memories, both good and bad, live through experiences there won't be a once-over for, and enjoy the 365 days of our lives, one day at a time, each marked by a very distinct colour and takeaway. Since all of this also reminds us of that one platform which allows us to spill our hearts out on, yes we are talking about Instagram - this year has been a mega year for the global photo-sharing app, we decided to share with you the top 5 images on the Gram that were most 'loved' and garnered the most amount of likes and appreciation in India. Browse through the following five images and you can see for yourself what makes them special, and maybe also like them if you haven't already: 1.

  23. Following a marauding run against West Indies at home, the Indian cricket team couldn't have been better prepared to travel to Australia for their much-anticipated tour this year. Boasting of match-winning batsmen and bowlers in their side, Team India undoubtedly looked stronger of the two sides preparing to lock horns in four Tests, three T20Is and as many ODIs. Starting the tour with the T20I series, the Indian cricket fans were anticipating a clinical performance from their national team in the first game at the Gabba. But, the Virat Kohli brigade looked far from the side that had recently demolished Windies at home. There were drop catches, mediocre batting displays and eventually a heartbreaking defeat at the packed Brisbane Cricket Ground. After electing to field first, Kohli's men seemed like they meant business, with both Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah looking sharp early on. And the fact that Australia got their first boundary on the 18th delivery of their innings despite the presence of the dangerous Aaron Finch and D'Arcy Short at the crease, highlights the tidy lines and lengths of India's pace bowling duo. With just 12 runs in 3 overs on the board, the Australian openers were beginning to feel a bit of pressure which opened a window of opportunity for the visitors. In the fourth over, Finch punched the ball straight into the hands of Kohli who couldn't do more than letting it slip through his hands. The drop catch eventually saw Bumrah conceding two consecutive boundaries later in the over. Virat Kohli leads by examples. Drops an easy catch of @AaronFinch5.#INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/AH8O5JouuU — Yash Bhati (@yashbhati0017) November 21, 2018 The Indian team eventually took three wickets through Khaleel Ahmed and Kuldeep Yadav which put the shackles on Australia's innings. With Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell still finding their feet, India stuttered further in the field. In the 13th over, KL Rahul's confusion in overthrowing the ball to the bowler or going for the stumps allowed Maxwell a second life - one he capitalised on later in the innings. Kohli is having a rare horrible day in the field Missed a catch,maybe should have come up to the stumps during that Maxwell run out chance,he was at short mid wicket,who should have ideally collected the ball,as Clarke on air rightly mentioned And then this misfield#INDvAUS — Devesh arora (@Devesharora20) November 21, 2018 The same over saw Kohli erring in the field again as he failed to get his hands around the ball after sprinting a long way in the circle. With India looking mediocre in the field, the Australian duo made the most of the chances they got. Given a lifeline earlier, Maxwell smoked sixes at will, sent the ball to the railings of the second-tier and even hit the spider cam as Indian bowling unit (mostly Pandya) ducked for cover. © BCCL With the partnership between Maxwell and Stoinis reaching 77 runs, India desperately needed a breakthrough and Bumrah provided one in the 17th over, only for Khaleel to put down a sitter. Batting on 17-ball 30, Stoinis chopped the ball straight down the throat of young Indian pacer which eventually let it burst through his hand before drawing the fury of Bumrah. Amid a blistering batting display from the Australian batsmen, India found some relief in the rain. After a brief disruption, the players returned to the field and Bumrah dismissed Maxwell, a wicket that we reckon came a tad too late. With the game reduced to 17 overs (including a five-over powerplay), the Indian fans were neither bothered by the revised 174-run target nor with the 10.23 required rate, owing to their visitor's strong batting line-up. But, that wasn't the case. Shikhar Dhawan took the charge of the Indian run-chase early on, smashing five boundaries in the first four overs of their innings. With Dhawan going hammer and tongs at the Aussie bowlers, Rohit slow start wasn't really a concern. But his decision to charge down the wicket against Behrendorff in the 5th over, which eventually cost India his wicket, was outright unnecessary. © BCCL Rohit was sent back to the pavilion, but Dhawan's blitzkrieg continued to the sheer joy of Indian fans. The 46-run partnership between Dhawan and KL Rahul stabilised India's chase, but it was the former who did most of the scoring. And, Rahul's bid to accelerate his strike-rate failed big time after he decided to drive inside the line of Adam Zampa's googly, eventually losing his balance and getting stumped. Zampa was back into business in the 11th over, only this time it was priceless wicket of King Kohli. Unable to score against the Aussie spinner (1 off 4 balls), Kohli was feeling the heat when he stepped out of the crease to cut Zampa's top-spinner before eventually getting a top edge that was safely taken at short third man. © BCCL With Dhawan still dictating terms at the other end, India still fancied their chances with adequate depth in their batting order. But, Billy Stanlake got Dhawan out caught at third man in the 12th over to rattle India's run-chase. Young Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik gave hope to the Indian fans after stitching a crucial 51-run partnership for the fifth wicket, but the ever-increasing asking rate proved a tad too much for them. The 16th over saw Andrew Tye dismissing Pant before Stoinis dashed India's hopes with consecutive wickets of Pandya and Karthik. In the end, India lost the game by a mere four runs (D/L method). A game that was undoubtedly a delight for the cricket fans, eventually proved to be a big wake up call for the Indian side. India scoring more than Australia yet losing. Australia ke score par laga GST bhaari pad gaya. But a good thrilling game to start the series.#AUSvIND — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) November 21, 2018 There was a lot to learn from the contest for the visiting brigade. An ordinary day in the field is definitely not going to help a top-side like India to register wins Down Under. Moreover, the decision to play Pandya backfired big time as the all-rounder gave away 55 runs in 4 overs (including six sixes) and couldn't score more than two runs. If their poor bowling allowed Australia to amass crucial runs, their mediocre batting display and poor shot selections eventually summed up their forgettable outing at the Gabba. Given their batting might, Kohli-led India would have been reasonably happy about chasing 174 runs in 17 overs on any day. But, on the day, when it mattered, the high-flying Kohli brigade just couldn't do it.
  24. Following the return of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR), the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) proved to be a major hit amongst the fans. Staging a brilliant comeback to the tournament, the MS Dhoni-led CSK overcame a resurgent Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) brigade in the final to clinch their third IPL title earlier this year. And, the 2019 edition of the IPL is expected to be no different. Promising some thrilling contests and slambang cricketing action, the upcoming edition of the tournament will once again pit the eight franchises against each other. But, even if the 2019 General Elections end up shifting the IPL outside India, the tournament, like in 2009, is not going to get affected (at least in terms of fanfare). While there are still a few months to go for the IPL to kickstart, the franchises seem to be busy spicing things up with some friendly banter on the social media. In what turned out to be an epic Twitter war, the likes of Chennai, Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians (MI) were recently seen locking horns in a trolling contest on the micro-blogging website. I had to hold my phone pretty high to fit Big Polly into the frame ð Happy to see you again my brother ð ⤠pic.twitter.com/lNXnI89B4E — hardik pandya (@hardikpandya7) November 13, 2018 It all began with Mumbai Indians' all-rounder Hardik Pandya tweeting a photo of himself in the company of his club mates Kieron Pollard and Krunal Pandya. "I had to hold my phone pretty high to fit Big Polly into the frame. Happy to see you again my brother," Hardik tweeted. Find a better allrounder trio. We will wait â³ð #CricketMeriJaan @hardikpandya7 @KieronPollard55 @krunalpandya24 https://t.co/wBnnKrVdF9 — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) November 13, 2018 Taking note of their star cricketer's tweet, Mumbai wasted no time in firing pot-shots at other IPL franchises with their tweet: "Find a better allrounder trio. We will wait". The wait is over! ð pic.twitter.com/MM5nzuuJDt — SunRisers Hyderabad (@SunRisers) November 13, 2018 In response, Hyderabad were quick to share the photo of their all-rounder trio which included Rashid Khan, Shakib Al Hasan and Mohammad Nabi. "The wait is over," SRH tweeted. Moondru Mugam ð¦ð¦ð¦#Thala #WhistlePodu ð pic.twitter.com/0thaMqeIE1 — Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) November 13, 2018 While Mumbai and Hyderabad were exchanging verbal volleys, Chennai, too, joined in the debate by sharing a photo of Dhoni, insinuating that their 'Thala' alone is equivalent to three all-rounders. The wait goes on...ððð pic.twitter.com/uDeM0WImIt — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) November 13, 2018 Though Mumbai didn't seem to have any answer for Chennai's gem of a tweet, the three-time IPL champions marked a comeback with a savage reply for Hyderabad. Taking a dig at SRH, Mumbai shared a picture of its IPL trophies and shut the David Warner-led brigade with the caption: "the wait goes on". The twelfth edition of the IPL is slated to begin from 29th April 2019 and even if the tournament is eventually moved outside India, the epic Twitter banter between these three franchises proves that it is going to be a feisty affair.
  25. There was a time when the top smartphone brands in India included Micromax, Karbonn and Intex. Those days are long gone, new entrants in the market have completely changed the dynamics in the last few years and homegrown brands are nowhere to be seen. The top four smartphone brands in India include Xiaomi, Samsung, Vivo, OPPO, and Huawei. Out of these, only Samsung is from South Korea, and all others are based out of China. According to a report in The Economic Times, consumers have spent more than Rs 50,000 crore in the financial year of 2018, buying smartphones made by the top four Chinese brands. © MensXP / Shivam Vahia The figure has nearly doubled than the last financial year and the the current trend suggests it will further increase. The top four here includes Xiaomi, currently India's top smartphone maker in terms of sales volume, followed by Vivo with a market share of 10 percent and OPPO at 8 percent. Other markers like Lenovo (includes Moto lineup), OnePlus, and Infinix make up more than half of the total Indian smartphone market by sales. These Chinese brands have completely saturated the market and placed their products in every possible price segment to lure the buyer. With global operations, these companies have managed to focus on India and the latest products have been coming in at a much faster pace now. © MensXP / Shivam Vahia While these brands are based out of China, they have heavily invested themselves in the country. In accordance with the government's Make in India initiative, all the major manufacturers have local assembly lines in the country. Local sourcing of phones ensures that employment is generated in the region and the companies are able to avoid high import duties. Xiaomi has already announced a plan to invest Rs 15,000 crore in setting up assembly lines while OPPO already has two facilities in Uttar Pradesh. Vivo employs more than 5,000 people in its plant and even Samsung (South Korean brand) has opened it's largest facility in the world at Noida. © Xiaomi The combined sales of these four smartphone makers doubled to Rs 51,722 crore from Rs 26,262 crore in FY17. The Indian smartphone market is valued at a whopping Rs 1.5 lakh crore in FY18. In Q3 2018 itself, more than 44 million smartphone units were shipped.
