  2. A hilarious video of a man walking through flooded Venice is doing the rounds on the internet. Well, it is hilarious because the man, totally unaware of the water's depth, falls into the canal while managing to click a selfie. Venice was left completely devastated as it faced severe floods recently, and was hit by its highest tide in more than 50 years this month. Ever since the video was made available on Twitter by a user named StanceGrounded, it has garnered over 4.6 million views and also was retweeted 51,000 times. The clip shows a man walking through the heavily flooded area with a selfie stick in his hand to get that perfect shot, while completely forgetting that there is no ground left and falls into the canal. Check out the video here Tourist in Venice, Italy ð𤣠I'm going to hell for laughing ð­ pic.twitter.com/o6iWPa0zzu — StanceGrounded (@_SJPeace_) November 25, 2019 One of the users wrote, “Guess he forgot how Venice got its name City of Canals.” Here are some of the reactions: Yes they have had major flooding but the idiot did not notice the bridge he was looking at to understand that was there for the canal he just walked into! ððððð — Deb Hodges (@debhodges1413) November 25, 2019 This guy is italian he's always doing pranks like this.

  5. Rajkumar Hirani, the man who forged the most surreal oeuvre of cinematic excellence with merely five films to his name. An industry outsider who happened to be a crazed possessor of commendable directorial vision, it took this 'five-film wonder' just one shot to create a niche for himself in Bollywood. Today Rajkumar Hirani is nothing less than an industry giant who has produced unique tales of love, life and fathered modern fables which have stood the test of time to this day. © Twitter/SirJadeja It all started back in 2000 when Rajkumar Hirani got the 'big break' of his career. Having unsuccessfully dabbled with film editing and advertising for years, Hirani finally got a chance to edit Vidhu Vinod Chopra's Mission Kashmir. Though the film failed to make an impact at the box office, it succeeded to Hirani on the map. His directorial debut came soon after in 2003 with Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. and thus began Rajkumar Hirani's unmissable journey to becoming Bollywood's 'five-film wonder' with five consecutive blockbusters at the box office. © Twitter/ManashDewanji From Munna Bhai to Sanju, Rajkumar Hirani weaved the most convincing tales which tied the audience to his narrative and got them hooked for more. With Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. Hirani furnished a side of Indian consciousness that thrives on titles and accomplishments. A shared dream every Indian wants to bite into - a distinguished job title and a possibility of climbing up the social ladder. But Hirani managed to unveil the futility of this rat race when placed against the facade people try to keep up by crushing personal dreams. A splendid tale of life and dreams that may or may not come to pass in a lifetime. © Vinod Chopra Productions Lago Raho Munna Bhai almost came through as a modernised refurbishing of Gandhigiri. With this comedy-drama, Hirani brought forth the timelessness of a way of a forgotten way of life that rests of calls for peace and togetherness. The 'Get Well Soon(s)', call for honesty and non-violence were seen to be valid even decades after the passing of Gandhi and Hirani sent out that message loud and clear with every antic Munna pulls off in the film. © Vinod Chopra Films The glory that is 3 Idiots needs no introduction. The story may have been inspired by Chetan Bhagat's Five Point Someone, but the final product was far more indulging and cathartic thanks to the indisputable vision of Rajkumar Hirani. The coming-of-age tale of three mates, and the numerous sub-plots held so many life lessons, even a life coach would fail to come up with them all in under three hours of runtime. © Vinod Chopra Films PK, on the other hand, was a different matter altogether. The all-consuming yet simple ways in which Hirani manages to logically uncover the loopholes in the Indian belief system, as well as the workings of blind faith and superstitions, is nothing short of marvellous! The flawed sense of God that mankind has come to practise, lay bare as PK attacks the culprits oh-so-subtly in this film. It hit many a nail on the head and received honest critical acclaim it deserved. © Vinod Chopra Films Most recently, it was Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanju which added the final feather to Hirani's hat. The film and its narrative enthralled the audience as they beheld a contemporary biographical film based on the life of a controversial personality. It might be true when people said that Hirani tried to “repaint” Sanjay Dutt's public image with this film, but we must give the man credit where it's due because he does leave ample space for the audience to come to their own conclusion despite his personal inclinations - what else could make for a great trait in a director? Rajkumar Hirani is a storyteller in the truest right. One who creates not with a pen and paper, but weaves tales in frames, sitting behind a camera. View the full article

  7. Earlier this year, US President Donald Trump stunned the world when he announced that Washington will pull out the Paris Climate Accord, an agreement under which each country determines plans and regularly reports its own contribution that it should make in order to mitigate global warming. And now, Trump has justified his decision saying that the Agreement was a "disaster" for the United States, as it "killed American jobs and shielded global polluters." However, it's another comment made by him to the Economic Club of New York that seems to be raising eyebrows. The US President has claimed that garbage from India is floating all the way to Los Angeles, adding that "developing nations" are taking advantage of the United States. #Garbage Dropped By #India Into Sea "Floats Into #LosAngeles": #Trump ਭਾਰਤà©à¨à¨ ਦਾ à¨à©°à¨¦ à¨à¨¤à© ਮà©à¨¸à¨¼à¨ ਪਹà©à©°à¨ ਰਿਹਾ ਲਾਸ à¨à¨à¨à¨²à¨¸- à¨à¨°à©°à¨ª ਨ੠ਦਿੱਤ੠à¨à©à¨¤à¨¾à¨µà¨¨à© pic.twitter.com/QpesMXIpYi — Punjab Spectrum (@PunjabSpectrum) November 13, 2019 “You know, I have a little problem. We have a relatively small piece of land -- the United States. And you compare that to some of the other countries like China, like India, like Russia like many other countries that absolutely are doing absolutely nothing to clean up their smokestacks and all of the garbage that they're dropping in sea and that floats into Los Angeles Isn't amazing it ends up in Los Angeles?” Trump said. The US President was referring to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP), also called the Pacific Trash Vortex which consists of marine debris that is made up of wood, chemical sludge, and plastic that has been floating between Hawaii and California. However, according to TOI, the analysis conducted by experts tells a different story, the main contributors of GPGP are China, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam, not India.

Also, the Indian Government plans to achieve 175GW of renewable energy capacity by 2022 as part of its climate commitments. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, on her recent trip to India, had hailed New Delhi's efforts in the field of renewable energy. View the full article

  10. A bad dance performance can lead to your bride leaving you at the altar. Don't believe us? Well, recently, a bride from UP called off the wedding because the groom broke into a 'naagin dance' before the pheras. Yes, that really happened! According to a TOI report, a bride stopped the wedding right after the varmala was done. Reportedly, the groom slapped his would-be wife when she said that she doesn't want to marry him. The police were called but the families didn't file any formal complaints after the groom's family agreed to return the gifts. © BCCL As per the news report, as soon as the baraat arrived at the wedding venue, the groom's friends asked him to dance and started misbehaving a little. The bride's family tried to get his friends off the dance floor but they started getting aggressive. Subsequently situation became calm when the varmala took place but after that, the groom couldn't contain his excitement and jumped back to the dance floor to do 'naagin dance'. He reportedly fell on the floor and misbehaved in his inebriated state, and looking at the ruckus, the bride decided to call off the wedding and left the venue. Speaking on this, the bride's brother said, “The groom was inebriated and didn't care about anybody during the ceremony. All the pre-wedding ceremonies were complete and whatever happened was just not acceptable. We all are hurt after my sister decided to call off the marriage but we still stood by her decision despite community pressure because we know that she has taken the right decision.” © BCCL SI Vipin Singh (in-charge of the investigation) told TOI, “After receiving a complaint, we immediately arrived at the spot but both the families decided to mutually resolve this issue on the advice of senior community members. The groom has given in writing that they would return the gifts by November 14 and bear the expenses.” Let us know your thoughts on this in the comments section below. View the full article
  11. When we think of recycling or rather, reusing plastic and other nonbiodegradable waste, the maximum extent to which we go is to make an artsy project. Or otherwise, we will be using those disposable bottles and make a pen holder, or a makeshift vase. © Instagram/yunfengwan But what happens when you have had enough of one article after the other on your Facebook feed, saying how we have doomed ourselves and we are headed for Armageddon? What happens if you are an artist and you want to do something about it, even if it's just to make a statement and get people's attention to force them into action? © Instagram/yunfengwan Well, you do what Wan Yunfeng, a Chinese artist, and fashion designer did, and make some head-turning “clothes” that's fit for the best runways around the world. © Instagram/yunfengwan Taking the proverb “one man's trash is another man's gold” and giving it a new meaning, Wan created a number of gowns and traditional Chinese dresses. Showcasing his creations in a photo essay titled “Protection of the Ocean” Wan has used commonly found single-use plastic wastes, such as plastic bottles, polythene bags, and plastic ropes. © Instagram/yunfengwan Albeit his creations are more of costumes rather than proper dresses, they do make a resounding statement. Wan's creations are a blistering critique of people's propensity to consume mindlessly, with little to no regard for the environmental costs of that consumption. © Instagram/yunfengwan “I ask for materials from everyone. Some come from my daily life, some come from my friends. I also travel globally. I go to some antique markets and flea markets to buy things. You need to make it beautiful.” says Yunfeng, © Instagram/yunfengwan His 'statements', even though have a European silhouette, have tons of Chinese influences. In a different series which Yunfeng shot in Paris, he repurposed an old quilt into a rather majestic gown, that had a heavy Victorian aesthetic. © Instagram/yunfengwan As expected, his avant-garde expressions have been vocal of that one entity which have contributed the most to the precarious position the earth is in - big corporations. © Instagram/yunfengwan Taking Swedish furniture makers and household item retailing giants as an example, Yunfeng made a dress using Ikea's trademark blue coloured shopping bag. As per their sustainability filings for the year 2017, Ikea group and its subsidiaries produced a total of 590,254 tonnes of waste, of which about 70 per cent was reusable. But here's the catch - that figure also included the waste that was sent for incineration which generated power. © Instagram/yunfengwan To put that in perspective, New Delhi, all on its own, produces about 10,000 tonnes of waste, each day. © iStock It seems, that this country needs artists and designers, more than any other, right now.

  13. After the successful run of Housefull 4 at the box office, Akshay Kumar has taken a much-deserved break to spend time with his family. He decided to take his daughter Nitara for a morning stroll and guess what? It turned out to be a beautiful lesson for the little one. © Twitter/Akshay Kumar The father-daughter duo came across an old couple in the village who helped Akshay and Nitara in the sweetest way possible. © Twitter/Akshay Kumar Akshay took to Twitter to share his experience through photos and wrote, “Today's morning walk turned into a life lesson for the little one.

A family man through and through, Akshay has always been close to his daughter Nitara and makes sure that he takes some time out to spend time with her. On her 7th birthday this year, he took to social media to wish his darling daughter in the cutest way possible. Posting a picture of Nitara nestled in his arms, Akshay wrote, "She's happiest when she's in daddy's arms and so is daddy, evidently.. Wishing you all the happiness in the world always...Happy birthday darling, Nitara.” On the work front, Akshay Kumar has a release this Christmas with Kareena Kapoor Khan titled Good Newwz.

  14. Can you imagine your life without certain things that we use on a daily basis like doorbells, lifts, or even language? We obviously can't right? These things are so normal and it's hard to imagine about a time before them. Well, a few desi people have come together to reminisce of that time and the results are absolutely hilarious. Yep, I'm sure everyone has seen the memes floating around on Twitter - which probably ended up on Instagram since it's all just Twitter screenshots now - and I can't get over how creative people have got with their jokes. It's one of the best desi memes of the year, hands down, and I love that it trended so much and we got so many hilarious reactions. Everyone just had very great intuition, apparently.

  15. Winters always call for fun Sunday brunches with the crew that turn into sundowners, and don't always need to be full-on 'a big dent' in your wallet' scenes. And, nothing's more fun than impromptu chill scenes that can just be pulled together at the last minute, no? With our easy guide to entertaining at home in true baller style, you really don't need much, believe us you. DIY Drinks © MensXP You don't have to go overboard spending a bomb on drinks. Make it BYOB (bring your own booze), and just buy a bottle of vodka or white rum, and mix it up with flavoured elixirs, and pour out into a big bowl. Serve chilled as cocktails 'cos brunch isn't brunch without some hard knock cocktails, no? __ECOMPRODUCT__247__ Chips, Dips And A Cheese Platter © MensXP Thankfully, most good grocery stores do a mean cheese platter with a variety or two of exotic fruits that come included. Have you tried Litchi's South-East Asian 'cuz, the Rambutan? Oh, you must. Or, you can put bowls of popcorn, nachos and chips around the table/room with different dips to go with. Lots And Lots Of Fairy Lights © MensXP If you're expecting the brunch to carry on into the wee hours, the nip in the air outside is perfect weather to entertain in. All you need are lots of fairy lights to liven up your space, with comfy cushions littered on chairs, the floor, and everywhere else 'cos our guess is, that by the end of the night you and your guests would want to start stretching out. A Good, Loud Music System © MensXP Update that playlist, and connect it right up with your badass speakers. The louder, the better we say - unless you have crappy neighbours (in which case it's best to give them a heads up, and apologise in advance for any loud music or chatter that might disturb them that late). Always best to pass your number along too, so they can give you a friendly reminder in case the need arises. Decks Of Cards And Other Entertainment © MensXP Card season might be over with Diwali, but cards are still by far our favourite thing to play at most drinking scenes. Kings, F*ck The Dealer or Bullsh*t, we've all played them, and you've got to admit, a drinking scene just isn't half as fun without them. __ECOMPRODUCT__252__ __ECOMPRODUCT__253__ __ECOMPRODUCT__254__ __ECOMPRODUCT__255__ Follow these 5 easy tips, and you and your guests will be all set to have one of your best scenes yet, weekend after weekend (or mid-week).

  18. We've heard it all about how the lack of natural sunlight, constant screen exposure and fixed postures of today's office lifestyles are going to lead us all into debilitating health conditions. A team of British researchers, however, have gone the extra mile and created 'Emma' - a realistic, scientifically informed female model of 2040's office professionals. Is it just me, or does she resemble Nicholas Cage? Focusing on the common experiences of 3,000 office workers from France, the UK and Germany, a team of researchers spearheaded by Will Higham - a leading consultant and behavioural futurist - set off on a mission to predict what our lifestyles will eventually lead to. © Fellowes The answer is far from ideal. “The Work Colleague Of The Future report shows that employers and workers really need to act now and address the problem of poor workplace health,” explains Higham. "Unless we make radical changes to our working lives, such as moving more, addressing our posture at our desks, taking regular walking breaks or considering improving our work station setup, our offices are going to make us very sick." © Fellowes Emma suffers from a large variety of both major and minor health issues - some are obvious such as the permanently hunched back from incorrect posture and too much time spent sitting down, varicose veins from poor blood flow and weight gain caused by a sedentary lifestyle. © Fellowes Other issues are more subtle, yet deeply troubling. Dry eyes from computer screens, swollen wrists and ankles due to repetitive movements, lifeless skin from years of avoiding natural light, eczema thanks to stress and hairy nostrils and ears thanks to constantly deteriorating air quality. Sounds like a great way to gracefully enter middle age - and all of this is without even considering common workplace habits such as smoke breaks, which over the years can turn an already grim situation worse. “It's too late for Emma, a lot of the problems she has are permanent,” adds Higham. “But, employees who are working now can do a lot to improve their lives.” While the corporate landscape isn't going to change overnight, we do need to take responsibility for our future health and make sure that we do take time to relax, hydrate and keep ourselves mobile.
  19. There are moments. Times that mark our memory and brand our spirit. Most often we don't see them coming, and the sudden encounter leaves us flat on the floor, hurt and vulnerable. Now, while most of us might end up in a corner licking our wounds, some exceptionally strong people turn around such experiences and personal grief into something greater and more impactful. © Dr Nordan Otzer Like Dr Nordan Otzer aka the Nomadic Doctor from the pristine valleys of Ladakh, who lost his mother to cancer but turned that ultimate personal loss into a means to touch thousands of lives and bless them with a long, healthy life instead. The Backstory A Christian Medical College graduate, Dr Otzer is originally a proud Ladakhi who gave his all to earn a medical degree that would help save numerous lives in the remotest and most rural parts of the country, that otherwise lay ignored. © Dr Nordan Otzer Talking to MensXP, Dr Otzer said, “I completed my internship in 2006, then I chose to work at a rural hospital in Tamil Nadu called Danish Mission Hospital, Tirukoilur which was lying defunct without a doctor for many years. I, along with one of my batchmates, managed to revive the hospital within 6 months.” Things had finally begun to look up as Dr Otzer set out to do what he had worked so hard for in the last few years, until one day life as he knew it went for a toss. © Dr Nordan Otzer While still there, “I got news from home that my mother was sick. Immediately, I decided to travel back to Ladakh to attend to my ailing mother. She was suffering from cervical cancer which had spread to the liver. Within a month, she died. We tried everything to save her. I was in complete shock and everything changed in my life after that event.” The Turning Point © Dr Nordan Otzer However, that wasn't going to be the last thing that would impact his life and shake up everything Dr Otzer believed in. “I felt guilty for not being able to save my own mother from the clutches of death. So, I decided to stay back in Ladakh and joined the nearby government hospital to serve my own people. Meanwhile, I came across another death due to cancer. This time it was a young girl called Sonam Dolma who had bone cancer. We flew her to Delhi for treatment but could not save her.” © Dr Nordan Otzer The untimely death of the young girl moved Dr Otzer into action once he realised how cancer unawareness and lack of preparedness was claiming precious lives in the valley, and “I decided to quit my job and I started visiting every village in Nubra valley to speak to women about various health issues especially cervical and breast cancer.” In a place where talking about women's health was considered taboo, Dr Otzer not only initiated a conversation around matters of grave importance but also found ways of saving many lives. The Harbinger Of Change © Dr Nordan Otzer It was then a decade ago in 2009 that he set up Himalayan Women Health Project, and screened around 10,000 women over the years. Dr Otzer and his team treated around 1000 women who were diagnosed with precancerous lesions. But he didn't just stop there. “In 2011, I started a movement along with women alliance of Nubra against Tobacco. We spread awareness about the health implications of tobacco on one's health. We were successful in convincing all the shopkeepers and traders against transporting tobacco product in the valley and within a month, on 11th May 2011, Nubra valley was declared as Tobacco-free.” Goodwill Counts © Dr Nordan Otzer Besides all the good initiatives that Dr Otzer has launched, he also helps the needy with financial support for treatment at tertiary care centres in Delhi and Chandigarh. The restaurant and cafe that the kind doctor owns in Leh donates all its profits for social causes and setting up free medical camps in remote Ladakh villages. The Ripple Effect © Dr Nordan Otzer Dr Otzer's message for young doctors is a simple one, but also something that more and more people are forgetting. He says, “We need to realise that we are what we are because of the community in which we grew up. Therefore, we must pay back to our society, our community and our own people. So, don't forget to come back to your own community and serve them.” Dr Otzer turned a personal tragedy into a force that saved and improved thousands of lives, and inspired people to do their bit and make this world a better place to live in.
  20. The best time of the year has finally dawned upon us. The festive fervour is floating all around and it's officially the time for friends and families to plan those much-awaited weekend getaways! While planning a vacation, the best way to unwind is to visit a luxurious location with the perfect mix of culture and soul. The one city that is the epitome of all three things is Jaipur. The 'pink city' is the ideal destination where old-school-charm and modern novelties meet. For most of us who have already been to the city, our experiences have been limited to royal landmarks like the Hawa Mahal and Amber Fort. However, there's a lot more that the city of maharaja has to offer! Here's how you can turn your little getaway to Jaipur into a perfect vacation filled with luxury and culture- 1. Fly Above The City: What better way to experience the city than flying above it and enjoying some splendid views of the city. Take in Rajasthan from a unique point of view, flying over the glimmering pink city of Jaipur on a hot air balloon ride. It's an exhilarating way to experience India and get a different perspective of the country. There are two flights each day; one in the morning, one in the afternoon. So buckle up for this manificent luxury. 2. Elephants For the Win: If you want to side-step routine touristy activities and try something unique, this point is for you! Anchored by the conviction that an Elephant Sanctuary provides a critical foundation for breaking the cycle of elephant tourism in Jaipur, Elefantastic works for domesticated elephants of Jaipur with low-income, marginalised caretaker families to run a sanctuary, to provide welfare services and to raise awareness for Asian elephants. 3. A Palace In The Middle Of It All: With its unique setting in the middle of a lake and the attractive backdrop of the temple-dotted Aravalli hills, Jal Mahal is the perfect spot to sit with your loved one and watch a beautiful sunset. As you look across to the palace from the water's edge on your boat ride, try to count the number of stories. There are five in total, but during monsoon season, it often looks like the palace has only a single story, as the lower four levels are submerged beneath the water's surface. 4. The Perfect Mix Of Luxury And Culture: Nestled amidst the majestic Aravalli hills, with 245 rooms and suites elegantly appointed. Fairmont Jaipur is an ode to the pink city. With its awe-inspiring architecture and decor, inspired by the Mughal dynasty and Royal Rajput's of yore it reflects a perfect blend of traditional Rajasthani décor and modern amenities. The hotel takes each guest on an opulent journey through large verdant gardens, elegant lobby and beautifully designed rooms. It is a perfect location to spend a day at the luxury spa or have the royal wedding of your dream. It offers a scenic luxury getaway for the discerning traveller. Book your rooms here. 5. Relish Local Cuisine In Luxury: When in Jaipur, one can't miss out on authentic Rajasthani cuisine. We are talking about laal mass, atta raab, nalli nihari, and well, the options are endless. The authentic flavours of Rajasthan come to life at a restaurant called Zarin. This quaint and classy eatery at Fairmont Jaipur is the perfect blend of luxury and culture. With experienced chefs, local flavours and Insta-worthy interiors, Zarin should be on every tourists list! In addition to these 5 pink city must-dos, there's lots more that Jaipur offers. All that's left is for you to pack your bags and let the adventure begin!
  21. Following their dismal outing at the ICC World Cup in England & Wales, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is leaving no stone unturned in a bid to restructure their setup. From changing their coach to employing a new diet, the Pakistan cricket team has undergone a major overhaul that is expected to improve their performances in major tournaments. While majority of the changes have been met with appreciation, the PCB's new model which has sought an overhaul of developmental cricket in the country appears to have drawn flak from cricketers and fans alike. On one hand, the PCB's latest model will focus in the development of 200 players, the other cricketers and management staff have now been left to fend for themselves. Fazal Subhan, a first-class cricketer in Pakistan, has been rendered jobless following the PCB's deployment of the new model. The 31-year-old cricketer has a double hundred to his name in first-class cricket and boasts of a strike-rate over 131 in T20s. He was considered a great talent for the national berth until the PCB's crackdown on departmental cricket culture forced him to become a mini-van driver in Karachi to earn a living. SAD STORY OF ðµð° ð Fazal Subhan was the player of HBL, he has played U19 & A side cricket for Pakistan, he was contender of Pak Test team, After closing of Departmental cricket he is driving drive “BHARE KE SUZUKI” His salary was 1 lac & now earning is less then 40k ð­ ð­ ð­ pic.twitter.com/nq22vPY55v — Shoaib Jatt (@Shoaib_Jatt) October 11, 2019 “Yes, I drive this (pickup) for bhara (fare). This is seasonal work. Some days there is a lot of work, and sometimes there is nothing for 10 days. I worked so hard to play for Pakistan. During departmental cricket, we were drawing a salary of Rs 100,000 but since the departments have shut down we are down to Rs 30,000-35,000, which is not enough to survive,” the cricketer, who played for Habib Bank Limited, was heard telling a reporter in a viral video on social media. “I am grateful that at least I have this job right now because of the way things are, who knows if I would even have this tomorrow. We have no choice; we have to do something for our children,” he added. Speaking about his career, Fazal said: “I played for Pakistan Under-19 team, and I also played for Pakistan A. I appeared in 42 first-class matches and was among the top five for two years. I played the home series in Lahore against India. I had played thrice in the series, and scored 39, an unbeaten 22 and once I was out for naught. Once I was in the frame for a Pakistan call-up. I was told by the board to get ready. I had my passport scanned and everything but then I don't know what happened". So sad Really , Like him & Many others r suffering, New system wil look after 200 players but 1000s of crickters & management staff r Unemployed bcos of this new model , I dont know who wil take the responsibility of this unemployment of cricket fraternity, ð¤²ð¼ for all the victims https://t.co/SaQfAKVFU2 — Mohammad Hafeez (@MHafeez22) October 12, 2019 Subhan's drastic situation has garnered a strong reaction from cricketers and fans. While Kamran Akmal called it "sad and heartbreaking", Mohammad Hafeez asked the authority to take responsibility. While Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, a former cricket captain, has asked the PCB to abolish departmental cricket saying it is a corrupt system that blocks talents, another former captain Javed Miandad was critical of the decision saying it served the livelihood for several cricketers.
  22. You know what's more important than the way you dress, how you speak, the confidence you exude and the personality you carry? It's how you make a first impression on someone and that overtakes anything and everything you're trying to be or are. Making a first impression on an autopilot has to be good, duh, but that's not entirely your thing to decide. What I mean is, first impression is usually decided by a crowd around you or the person you're meeting for the first time and once that impression is made, you can't really change it, because no one really believes in second chances when it comes to first impressions. In fact, you might have heard the saying 'first impressions are last impression' and there is a lot of truth in that. © Eros International Making a first impression on a girl you're meeting for the first time is equally important. That's because if you're really in to her or meeting her for the first time, you really want to crank it up a bit and be the best version of yourself but you don't want to over-do it. You want to remain calm and subtle, ambitious and confident and someone she'll gel with easily. Here are 3 important things to keep a check on if you wish to make a good first impression in front of a woman you really like. (1) Stand Tall Well, literally and figuratively. By this I mean, don't stand in front of her with a hunched back because that denotes lack of confidence and dullness and you certainly don't want to give out those vibes. Correct your posture, stand tall and talk with extreme confidence when you do talk to her. Don't be over-confident. That's a really big turn off. Just be yourself and don't look down and talk to her. Look in to her eyes and make conversation, talk loud enough for her to hear you clearly and don't act cocky, boast or show off. She's on a lookout to spot these things in you and if she does, you're out bro. Just stand tall! © Pinterest (2) Don't Focus On Yourself Too Much I know it's a tough situation at times, especially when you're an introvert and you have to deal with anxiety every time you meet someone new. But the key is to not focus on making yourself comfortable as much as making the other person comfortable because when you make the other person feel comfortable, you automatically calm down because you both are calm and are within good energy together. The energy YOU HAVE created! By shifting your concern on someone else you shift focus on the knee deep anxiety that was making a home in you, while you were trying to make a good first impression. © Filmkraft Productions Pvt. Ltd (3) Be Good At Small Talk Of course if you meet her for the first time, you wouldn't divulge personal information, neither would you ask her to do the same. This is where small talk really comes in handy. If you start making small talk, you might catch her interest over something and then maybe you can start talking about that very topic. Small talk plays a crucial role in connecting with other people. Just keep the conversation flowing and unless you've stalked her before hand, ask her questions every now and then, through the small talk to get to know her better, before eventually making the conversation a bit more personal. © Eros Entertainment There are obviously other things you need to keep in mind to make a good first impression. For instance, always keep smiling, be on time and don't make the other person wait, be comfortable in your clothing, have an introduction prepared, don't ask too many personal questions in one go or talk shop all the time and most importantly, breath! If you follow through with these plus the important ones mentioned above, there is no way you can make a bad impression on her, or anyone else ever.
  23. Many of us have a number of 'hidden' talents that do not make their way into the outside world for others to see because of a number of reasons. Either we are too shy, or not too confident or too self-critical to even consider it as a talent that can be let out in public. Well it seems that a Karnataka cop called Chandrakant Hutgi, who is a head constable at the Hubli rural police station, is one such person. He has been named as the 'Pied Piper of the Police Department' after he transformed his lathi into a flute and played such melodious tunes, that IPS officer stationed there was inspired to post the video of Hutgi in action online. Chandrakant Hutgi, Head Constable from Hubli Rural Police station has converted his Deadly Fiber Lathi into a Musical Instrument... we are proud of him... pic.twitter.com/gyZWhk1lkb — Bhaskar Rao IPS (@deepolice12) May 28, 2019 IPS officer Bhaskar Rao invited Hutgi to Bangalore and even awarded him with a special cash award. “Rao called me to Bengaluru on Monday with the musical lathi to play for him in his office after he heard from his colleagues that I converted it into a flute. He also rewarded me,” Hutgi told IANS. © Twitter The video has since gained a lot of momentum online and people are thoroughly impressed with head constable Hutgi's talent. As for the man himself, he calls this his hobby. By using simple tools Hutgi made eight holes on his lathi and turned it into a flute on which he loves to play Kannada film songs while he isn't busy working. No wonder he has impressed so many people who cannot stop praising him for his show of unique talent. What innovation we say!
  24. What do you think is going on, when you realise that someone broke into your house while you were away? Of course, you will think it was burglary. I am sure no thief will break into your house to clean your bathroom or bedroom, right? But, that's exactly what happened with Nate Roman, a guy from Massachusetts. 44-year-old Nate, who lives with his 5-year-old son, returned home one day to realise that someone had broken into his house. Reportedly, the back door of his house was open or as he feels he might have forgotten to lock it. Scared of what he will find inside his house, Nate walked inside silently and got one of the biggest shocks of his life. Getty Images Turns out, the stranger who broke into his house didn't steal anything. Instead, the burglar cleaned the whole house. From making the beds, vaccuming the rugs, scrubbing the toilets, cleaning the bathrooms, bedrooms to arranging his son's soft toys, the thief brought the home back to its perfect condition. What's more, the intruder even left toilet paper roses for the owner. Honeslty, this kind of burglar is every desi mom's dream intruder. While this entire incident turned out to be a case of 'no stealing just cleaning for free' service for Nate, it's still very creepy. But, Nate has a theory. He feels it must have been a housekeeping service that may have gone to the wrong adress (maybe because of the perfect toilet paper rose origami). It kind of does make sense because no thief will waste his time cleaning the whole house for free, and leave a toilet paper rose too. Reportedly, the cops are looking for this mystery house cleaner. Seriously, this is a bigger plot twist than 'Game of Thrones' finale. Let's be honest, we all want a burglar like him in our lives. I mean, things can't get any better than this.
  25. If you go to a gym, there is a pretty good chance that there is a bodybuilder 'Guruji' trainer you always see. He is hailed by everyone in the gym as the muscle building Guru and every kid in the gym would be asking him hundreds of questions to look buff like him. If you approach the Guruji, he will first ask you to become his personal training client. Until you do that, all the muscle building secrets are hidden. Once you decide to take the plunge, he makes you do questionable-looking workouts and puts you on the classic one-body-part-a-day routine. Then, you will be told to follow a diet with boiled chicken, fish, veggies, egg whites, oats, sweet potato etc. He will make you grind and kill your tastebuds a slow painful death for months. Then the secret formula of building muscle will come into the picture. He will give you a pack of pills (most of the times the label will be stripped off) called Dianabol. © Twitter The Guruji will say that these are simply vitamin pills that every guy in the gym uses to build muscle. It is very normal and very safe to consume it. Just have a pill every 2-3 hours in a day and consume 3 to 5 pills, he'll say to you convincingly. As you have already been doing whatever your guruji has been asking you to do for a few months and you blindly trust him, you hop on to the plan. Within a couple of weeks you see the following benefits: 1. Increased strength 2. Increased muscularity 3. Better performance at the gym 4. Some fat loss 5. Better recovery 6. Less fatigue Your happiness is unbound and you feel like an alpha in the gym as you get stronger, look bigger and the magic vitamin given to you by your Guruji starts to show wonders. This goes on for a few weeks, then you see something unusual happening to you. You may experience some of these symptoms: 1. Some hair loss happening 2. You start looking fluffy due to water retention 3. Boils appearing on your back 4. Some acne on your face 5. Your chest is looking fatty You get worried and rush to your Guruji and he tells you to stop using the pills for some time and assures you that you'll be back to normal. You do that and all of a sudden, these strength and muscle gains start to disappear and you are further stressed or depressed that all your work is going down the drain. You want to start popping the magic vitamin all over again but do not want the side effects. Well, now let's get to the point. If you or any of your friend has been given this magic vitamin pill that is small and blue and probably in the shape of a heart, it is not a freaking vitamin. © Getty Images This pill is an anabolic steroid as is illegal to use and banned for sales in most countries across the world. Steroids have a lot of side effects internally like liver damage, kidney damage, heart health, etc. This blue pill can potentially kill your insides and have you on corrective treatments or medication for a lifetime due to your sheer short-term stupidity. If someone promises you a quick magic pill for muscle gain and losing fat, it is most probably a terrible idea and unsafe. Bottom line: Stop trusting your gym Gurujis blindly.
