  1. Respawn's 'Apex Legends' has been hitting some impressive gaming milestone since it's launch. The game recently hit 50 million players worldwide, and now it's been brought to light that the title has become the biggest free-to-play launch of all time. © Respawn According to a report by market research firm Superdata, 'Apex Legends' is not just a big hit for EA, it's also the became biggest free-to-play title launch of all time by pulling in a whopping $92 million in revenue in its launch month i.e. February across all platforms. Not just that, 'Apex Legends' also became one of the top ten grossing games in February. Reportedly, most of the money which 'Apex Legends' made was on consoles, not PC. The game ranked fourth in console revenue and sixth in PC among all titles. Here, take a look: © Superdata 'Fortnite', as you can see, still topped 'Apex Legends' on both the platforms by generating more than $300 million in a single month. Yes, 'Apex Legends' may not have killed 'Fortnite' in terms of the revenue, but there's no denying that 'Apex Legends' is just as popular as 'Fortnite', if not more. I mean, I personally play 'Apex Legends' a lot more than 'Fortnite' nowadays, and I know I am not alone. 'Apex Legends', in case you don't know, is a free-to-play title that's available on EA's Origin. The game has revenue streams via its virtual coin currency, which allows players to purchase Apex Packs and splurge on cosmetic upgrades. In fact, even some legends like Mirage, Caustic and the new Octane are behind a paywall for those who want to add them quickly instead of earning points to acquire them.
  2. Imagine a world where you can play even the most demanding AAA titles of your choice without expensive gaming hardware! Yes, a world where you can just open the Chrome browser, pick a game of your choice and play it instantly without having to download or install anything whatsoever. Sounds too good to be true, isn't it? © YouTube Well, even I wouldn't have believed it if it wasn't for Google's CEO Sundar Pichai, who took the stage last night at GDC to announce the company's new game streaming service called Stadia. Yes, the service will essentially let you play any AAA title of your choice with just a tap of a button in your Chrome browser. You can play your games on any device of your choice, provided that you have a solid internet connection. No Downloads and no installation. According to Google, Stadia's cloud computing power is equivalent to a console running at 10.7 GPU teraflops, which is more than the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X combined. So let's take a quick look at the service and see how it works. Here's How Stadia Works As long as you are connected to a fast and stable internet connection, and you're using the latest version of Chrome browser, you can use Stadia and all its features. Like I said earlier, all you need to do is open the Chrome browser, visit stadia.com or tap the video game's link, and start playing. The service requires a streaming rate of 15Mbps, latency below 40ms and data loss below 5-percent. Don't worry, Google will run a quick connection test before dropping you into a game, so you'll know if your connection can handle it. As soon as you start playing the game, it'll go fullscreen and run just like it would normally on, say, a gaming PC or a console. You can choose to play with either a keyboard and a mouse or use Google's own Stadia controller, which it launched yesterday along with the service itself. © Google The details are still murky, but Google says that Stadia will eventually be able to scale up to 8K/ 120+ fps, which is just insane. You'll still have to be logged in to the respective game service like UPlay for Ubisoft, etc. but that's not really an issue, is it? What Games Will Be Available On Stadia? Sadly, Google didn't give us much info about the game, but we do have a good idea about what to expect. For instance, Google was able to give us a demo of Assassin's Creed Odyssey at 1080p 60fps, which according to Ubisoft, requires a powerful rig. So if Stadia was able to run that without much of a hassle, then I believe the service is going to be capable of playing a whole lot of games at these settings. It is also worth pointing out that Google has launched its own studio called Stadia Games and Entertainment. This studio will be put to work for designing games exclusively for Google's game streaming platform. So yes, Google seems pretty ambitious about this service. The service is launching this year in select regions like the US, Canada, UK, and Europe, and there's no info about its arrival in India.
  3. Guess who's back, back again? Nah, it's not Slim Shady but one of Hollywood's most reputed, infamous directors- Quentin Tarantino and this time, he's bringing to us his 9th film titled 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood'. © Pinterest The film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt in the lead roles already has its first poster out and according to popular notion, it looks like it has been photoshopped and has already received a fair share of flak and absolutely hilarious memes, for existing in the first place. Even so, people are still looking forward to Tarantino's work and according to the writer and director the film, it “is a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood." The poster does initiate a similar vibe but it looks rather bland, like someone's deliberately asked Pitt and DiCaprio to pose, whilst holding a gun to their heads! Take a look: © Twitter The film is basically based on the Manson family murders in 1969, in Los Angeles. DiCaprio will play Rick Dalton, a former star of western TV series and Brad Pitt will play his stunt double, Cliff Booth. “I've been working on this script for five years, as well as living in Los Angeles County most of my life, including in 1969, when I was 7 years old. I'm very excited to tell this story of an LA and a Hollywood that don't exist anymore. And I couldn't be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio and Pitt as Rick and Cliff,” said Tarantino in an interview © Twitter The poster has two of them leaning on either side, supporting a very nonchalant 60s look, and they will both play fictional characters in the film, while the rest of the cast is based on real-time characters. The film has a huge star-cast which primarily includes- Margot Robbie who plays Sharon Tate, Damian Lewis as Steve McQueen, Al Pacino as Dalton's agent Marvin Shwarz, Dakota Fanning as Carles Manson's follower Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme, Timothy Olyphant and Kurt Russell, among the rest. Hollywood. 1969. #OnceUponATimeInHollywood A post shared by Leonardo DiCaprio (@leonardodicaprio) on Mar 18, 2019 at 5:44am PDT Twitter, however, smells a Photoshop rat and claims Bratt Pitt has been made to look digitally younger than his OG age of 55 years, probably in an intent to make him look the same age as Leo, who is 44.

While minimalism and blandish designs are not what Tarantino's about, we're sure there will be an explanation for the posters soon. We also reckon the trailer will throw some light on what to expect from the movie. For now, let's wait for the final release, which is on the 26th of July, 2019 to see what's in store.
  4. If you're not living under a rock, you must have known that this video starring Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor is burning up the trends list. And why would it not? Their chemistry and rapport teleport us to their best on-screen performances and we realise it hasn't changed one bit since. Asian Paints has launched a national campaign for Royale Health Shield with the two powerhouse actors. It is a revolutionary paint with anti-bacterial technology and its Silver Ion Technology is highly recommended by the Indian Medical Association. And not just that, it gives the best finish that your walls can have. The video shows RK renovating his home and asking Deepika for her advice. Initially, the two are seen talking on the phone and their conversation is quite cute. But it's the latter part of the video which really got us all excited. After the phone conversation, Ranbir and Deepika come face-to-face and that's when their sizzling chemistry takes over. The widely shared video is being loved by all! Tell us what you think about it?
  5. The desire to build something of their own and focus their grey cells honed by academic excellence in the field of technology, made two friends set out on a very innovative journey, which could change how the world views Indian technology. Akshay Singhal has been working in the field of Nanotechnology for the last 7 years and hold great knowledge of Nanotechnology and Material Science. Along with co-founder Kartik Hajela, the duo set out to build Log 9 Materials from a lab set up in Akshay's backyard. © Mensxp Log 9 Materials is one of our country's leading Nanotechnology companies that specializes in Graphene. So, while Akshay looks after overall research and operations of Log 9 Materials. Kartik takes care of the commercial and market introduction aspect of the products that are launched by the company. However, the duo swears by Graphene and the immense potential it holds. What Is Graphene? © Mensxp Graphene is the most advanced form of Carbon that exists in this world, which was discovered in 2004. Related to graphite at the core, but Graphene is different in properties. It is more conducting than copper and stronger than steel! It has such diverse properties that can be put to use in different areas across the board. What Does Log 9 Material Do? The first product that they launched when they were in college, was a cigarette filter called PPuF. Next, they began to explore the oil filtration domain, and the findings so far have been very promising. They came up with the Log9 Pad which is laced with graphene, which can bring about a positive change during oil spills by absorbing the oil spilt on the water surface. © Mensxp However, their latest product in the pipeline is the Metal-Air Battery. Kartik says, “The battery is still a working prototype and we are working on it. However, the essence of the technology comes in E.V.s.” Yet, the challenges related to belief have been real, both from the side of investors as well as consumers. Because both investors and consumers have a hard time placing their faith, that something of such potential can be developed and manufactured in India. Life at Log9 © Mensxp Log 9 Materials is a team of 34 people from engineering backgrounds, and they have scientists as well as marketing wizards. The company seeks people from the said background because regardless of what they do, they need to have technical competency. The average of the team is around 26 and most of them come from materials, chemical or nanotechnological background. These committed and ambitious people have come on board to innovate and build something that would impact the world. © Mensxp Akshay and Kartik want aspiring entrepreneurs to take that leap of faith, if they have faith in their own ideas and know that it will work. As for Akshay he says, “if you really want to do something, do it today rather than tomorrow. Also, hold your ground. Don't buy into or accept whatever is offered, but hold your ground and things will fall into place.”
  6. There's been a lot of banter about the Redmi Note 7 Pro's camera prowess. My colleague reviewed the phone earlier this week and found it to be really good, but I wanted to test it out myself before passing my judgement, if any. So I decided to borrow our review unit and took it out for a spin. And boy, was I in for a surprise! I use an iPhone XR as my daily driver and I really like that phone, its cameras included. In fact, it has been one of my favorite phones to shoot pictures with lately. Given how much I like the iPhone XR's cameras, I wasn't expecting the Note 7 Pro to take me by surprise. But trust me, I was wrong. At first, I started capturing random pictures with the Redmi Note 7 Pro to get the hang of the camera and Xiaomi's camera app. Even when I wasn't really putting much effort, this phone managed to produce shots like this: © MensXP / Karthik Iyer Yes, it was at this point that I decided to pull out my iPhone XR out of curiosity to see how they compared. It was somewhat a gloomy day here in New Delhi, which I thought was just perfect to push these cameras to their limits. So, I did. Just take a look: Note: All photos captured from the Redmi Note 7 Pro have a watermark. The images used for comparison were shot on an iPhone XR. Also, none of these images have been edited in any way whatsoever. The images, which you see below, were shot from a metro station. Both phones did a really good job here, but I personally like the Redmi Note 7 Pro's photo mainly because of the colors. They're natural, and the overall image look a lot presentable with lots of detail. © MensXP / Karthik Iyer Next up, I decided to go with a shot which, honestly, even a lot of flagship smartphones struggle with. As we all know, it's pretty hard to expose the subject when there's a strong source of light right behind or around the subject. But both the phones did great in this case. The fact that Redmi Note 7 Pro managed to make it just as good as the iPhone XR did, is truly impressive. © MensXP / Karthik Iyer And here's another one. The Redmi Note 7 Pro's image is the clear winner for me here. The focus on the subject is on point, and there's a ton of detail. Not that the iPhone's image is bad, but it's not something I would post on social media without doing a bit of tinkering unlike the Note 7 Pro's image. It's truly a stunning shot, is it? © MensXP / Karthik Iyer Even as I was losing the light and things started getting more gloomy, the Redmi Note 7 Pro didn't fail to impress me. This is one of those images, which truly made me question the point of buying an expensive phone to get good cameras. Great dynamic range and really good exposure. Just take a look - © MensXP / Karthik Iyer And here's another shot taken in low light/ artificial lighting. This restaurant is better known for its food than lighting, but the pictures aren't too shabby, are they? © MensXP / Karthik Iyer I can keep throwing in more images here from my gallery, but I think we've established a point here. No, I am not trying to pick a winner and justify my opinion. However, I must say that Xiaomi has done a phenomenal job with the Redmi Note 7 Pro. I mean, just Rs 13,990 for a smartphone that's capable of competing with big dogs like Apple's iPhone? Sign me up. Of course, I am not ready to ditch my iPhone, at least not yet, but the Redmi Note 7 Pro is a star. If you like taking pictures on your phone among other things and you don't want to burn a huge whole in your pocket, then the Redmi Note 7 Pro is a no-brainer. It's truly the budget king that everyone needs to beat. © MensXP / Akshay Bhalla Well, that wraps up just about everything. Again, most of this is subjective since not all people tend to prefer the same kind of images. But as someone who loves taking pictures for Instagram and craves a bit of a self-validation, I really enjoyed my time shooting with the Redmi Note 7 Pro. If you're looking to check out more camera samples or want to learn more about the Redmi Note 7 Pro's overall performance, then be sure to check out our review of the phone.
  7. After weeks of teasers, Tesla has finally shown the public its new Model Y crossover vehicle at the Tesla Design Studio in Hawthorne, California. The vehicle is based on the core design of the Model 3 sedan, but with a larger body, and a third row, for seating for up to 7 people. It's technically a crossover that has a tall body sitting on a basic car platform. Elon Musk had previously confirmed that Tesla's baby SUV will share up to 75 percent of its components with the recently-launched Model 3 saloon, including the platform. © Tesla “It has the functionality of an SUV, but it will ride like a sports car,” Musk said. “So this thing will be really tight on corners,” Tesla says it has a drag coefficient of 0.23, making it more streamlined than a Toyota Prius. This, in turn, helps in increasing efficiency. Musk devoted only five minutes of his 34-minute presentation to the new SUV. He spent the rest of the time recounting Tesla's rise and recent history. © Twitter / @sokane1 Most of the Model Y's interior is lifted from Model 3. Features include a minimalist dashboard devoid of physical buttons, a panoramic glass roof, a wireless smartphone charger, and an enormous 15-inch centre-mounted infotainment screen. The popular "Falcon Wing" doors of the Model X have been skipped though, our guess is to keep costs low. The base Model Y ("Standard Range") starts at US$ 39,000 (Rs 26,95,000), accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds, and can travel 230 miles (370 km) on a single charge. It will be the last version available, starting deliveries in spring 2021. © Tesla The Long Range model starts at US$ 47,000 (Rs 32,48,000) and can go up to 300 miles (482 km) on a single charge. The Dual Motor AWD variant will cost US$ 51,000 (Rs 35,24,000) and travel 280 miles (450 km). Lastly, the Performance option starts at US$ 60,000 (Rs 41,46,000) and can go from zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds with a range of 280 miles (450 km). Delivery of the three shall start from the fall of 2020. © Tesla Customers increasingly want taller vehicles that are easier to get in and out of and offer flexible storage. The Model Y gets a panoramic sunroof, 66 cubic feet of storage space and a third row for seating up to seven passengers. Musk also expects the car to get a 5-star crash rating and high safety marks, making it the safest mid-sized SUV till date. According to Tesla, the Model Y is compatible with the company's current Supercharger network of more than 12,000 Superchargers in 36 countries, as well as our new V3 Superchargers which can charge at rates up to 1,000 miles per hour.
  8. At a time when faith and religion are gaining prominence over all the other things that make us an active member of the society and each other's lives, we constantly seek out positive instances to help us get to a positive state of mind. One that would guide us to a more cheerful, peaceful and inclusive future, where every individual can live without a religious tag making the slightest difference to our lives. And talking of such positive instances, we have these four young men who are not only inspiring hope, but are also successfully leading the way to show us what a society with thriving communal harmony could look like. © Quora Featured in Humans of Bombay earlier today, one of the four buddies in the picture was quoted saying something so simple yet impactful that we often overlook in our frenzy to get on with our lives on a day to day basis. Something that is as simple as God is one, and we are all His children. Read what the young man has to say, that's inspiring people to come forward and share their personal stories about the wonderful people in there who don't share the same faith, and yet a world of a difference to their life anyway. View this post on Instagram “The four of us are really good friends and have come here for the evening Namaz. He's a Hindu, but he still comes with us everyday, after work, so that we can spend some time together. We pray for him and he prays for us – he even knows certain parts of the Quran by heart, and we're learning the Gayatri Mantra from him! There's just one person up there, and He listens to all, no matter where you're from. If the whole world understands that, then wouldn't it just be heaven on earth?” A post shared by Humans of Bombay (@officialhumansofbombay) on Mar 13, 2019 at 10:27pm PDT “The four of us are really good friends and have come here for the evening Namaz.

  9. Microsoft showed off its Project xCloud and gave a first look of the service working in action. The company has been developing a cloud-based game streaming platform for a while, which is expected to be the future of gaming. Microsoft is already planning to stream games that are made for the Xbox One and is also planning to launch a disc-less console soon. © YouTube As part of the demo, we can clearly see Forza Horizon 4 running in a data centre and being streamed to an Android smartphone. The game is being controlled by an Xbox One controller via Bluetooth. “Anywhere we have a good network connection, we'll be able to participate in Project xCloud,” Microsoft head of gaming cloud Kareem Choudhry said in the video Choudary also went on to explain that Project xCloud will work similar to music or video streaming services i.e you can log in from any device i.e. a phone or even a laptop and find the library similar to music libraries. Basically, this service will work on any device that has a screen and play demanding games on the fly. © Microsoft The service will also give you access to your cloud saves, friend lists and everything that users are already familiar with on the Xbox One. However, Choudry went on to say that “It's not a replacement for consoles, we're not getting out of the console business,” © Microsoft Game streaming services are being touted as the future of gaming thanks to new technologies like 5G and cloud computing. Google is also launching its own game streaming service next week at GDC 2019. Microsoft already offers a subscription service in the form of Xbox Game Pass where users can play Xbox One and Xbox 360 games for Rs 699 per month.
  10. From the looks of it, 'Made In Heaven' is about two wedding planners, Tara Khanna (Sobhita Dhulipala) and Karan Mehra (Arjun Mathur) and the shenanigans that come with planning a big fat Indian wedding. But that's just the surface of it all. MIH is just as much about everything else Bollywood has been brushing under the carpet all these years. The choice between aspiration and self respect, the price you pay for freedom and what it really takes to stand up for yourself – MIH is basically Bollywood growing up. Directed by Zoya Akhtar, Nitya Mehra, Alankrita Shrivastava, and Prashant Nair, the show is spread across 9 riveting episodes, each following the protagonists as they sign up for a new wedding, each pulling you deeper and deeper into their personal lives, making you feel their darkest truths so convincingly, you're reminded of your own. © Amazon Prime This isn't your typical 'rich people dealing with rich people problems' narrative. The characters are polished (well, most of them) but the storytelling is as raw and unadulterated as it gets – to the point that it makes you uncomfortable with its unabashed reality. Even though there are a myriad of new characters introduced in every episode, the prolific writing makes them all stand out well. They're not just distinct from each other, they're too damn real, be it the starry-eyed Jazz who fancies everything rich or the already rich Adil who's unapologetic about having an extra marital affair. These are people we know, the people we see, the people we are - in all their glory and all their flaws. © Amazon Prime SPOILERS AHEAD: At one of the weddings, the father of the bride is caught molesting a 'mehendiwali'. The bride offers her Rs 2 lakh as a compensation. Just when you think the show would make a strong point against it, “5 lakh” the mehendiwali blurts out nervously. And that's the kind of bold this show is. Bold not visually, but because they raise uncomfortable conversations that happen around us all the time but are never acknowledged. Can money really buy everything? How far would you go to live a life you've always aspired for? How sacred are marriages really anyway? © Amazon Prime The show not just normalizes relevant subjects like mental health, sexual assault and homosexuality but goes one step ahead in their representation. For once, a gay character isn't reduced to an effeminate caricature used as a device to evoke humour. The gay community is represented as is. Even when the show raises an important point about the criminalization of homosexuality, it does so without seeking sympathy or preaching. There's no deliberate attempt to make Karan's homosexuality a plot twist or use it to titillate the audiences. Gay people are treated just like their straight folks on the show – as people. Karan, one of the two protagonists, is a man who's sure of his sexuality and very much in touch with his sexual desires. Karan's sexuality isn't what the show is about, it's just one of the many parts that make him who he is – and that's normalization in its truest sense. It's not that Bollywood hasn't seen films on this subject before. But MIH gets spot on in the nuanced depiction of how homophobia goes deeper than shame – it sometimes makes you do things that you regret for the rest of your life. © Amazon Prime What the show also gets right is the cast. Each and every actor on the show, however much small their screen presence may be, is splendid. Arjun Mathur's Karan is probably one of the finest portrayals of a gay character ever in Bollywood. Arjun has pushed the envelope and how! His vulnerability moves you to tears. Sobhita as Tara shines as the lower middle class girl who's crossed over to the other side and now, can't decide who she identifies as anymore. Even with all her flaws, she makes you root for her like nobody else. Jim Sarbh is a revelation as Adil. He's so effortless and real, you're convinced of his dilemma even without him having to spell it out for you. Shashank Arora and Kalki Koechlin also do complete justice to the characters they play. Shivani Raghuvanshi as Jazz is a treat to watch. Hers is probably of the most well-written characters and her performance adds several more layers to the writing. The cast also boasts of some brilliant actors like Shweta Tripathi, Rasika Duggal, Deepti Naval, Vinay Pathak, Neena Gupta, Vijay Raaz, and Vikrant Massey who leave a mark even in the little screen time that they get. © Amazon Prime 'Made In Heaven' is easily one of the best shows ever made in India. You've got to watch it to know what Bollywood has been missing out on all these years. It's a master class in screenwriting for the Indian film industry. Thank you for this, Zoya Akhtar!
  11. Huawei debuted the Watch GT back in October last year alongside its Mate 20 series of smartphones. The company took its time, but the watch has finally been launched in India today. The new Huawei Watch GT Sports edition is priced at Rs 15,990 and the Classic edition is priced at 16,990. It'll be available for purchase via Amazon India starting March 19. The Huawei Watch GT sports a 1.39-inch OLED touch screen with a resolution of 454x454 pixels. The watch has a 46.5mm round dial and it has a stainless-steel body, available in black or metal finishes. It also comes with interchangeable straps and is also water resistant up to 50 meters. © YouTube Moving on to the software, the Watch GT runs on Huawei's proprietary software called LightOS. Only time will tell if it's better than Google's WearOS, but Huawei says the watch can deliver up to 2 weeks of battery life. Yes, Huawei says that you can go up to 2 weeks on a single charge, and should take you roughly about 2 hours to top up the battery. Huawei has also packed the watch with some fitness-centric features such as constant heart-rate monitoring, sleep-tracking and more. The Watch GT has GPS, and it will take advantage of technologies like TruSeen 3.0 heart rate monitoring and TruSleep 2.0 to give you accurate measurements. In addition to the fitness-focused features, you obviously get the basic smartwatch features like the ability to check notifications of messages, calls, reminders, and alarms. The Huawei Watch GT also comes with an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, ambient light sensor, and more. © Huawei The Watch GT supports Bluetooth v4.2 and NFC, however, it lacks the Wi-Fi support. It packs 16MB RAM and 128MB ROM, and it's compatible with smartphones running Android 4.4 or later or iOS 9.0 or later. You can pick up the Huawei Watch GT with either a leather or a silicone strap in a bunch of different colours.
  12. One of the main topics of conversation surrounding 'Captain Marvel' was representation. There are so many superheroes for little boys to look up to, and finally, Captain Marvel came and even little girls got to see a badass superhero and get inspired. But, Captain Marvel gave us one more important representation in pop culture - representation for cats. We've already established how Goose the cat was the real hero of the latest Marvel movie and how the little adorable alien cat stole the show every time it appeared on the screen. Marvel even gave Goose its own superhero poster because they already knew the cat was going to be a fan favourite. © Marvel The particular poster got so much love when it came out like two months ago, but ever since the movie released, this poster started a whole new trend in Korea. People started photoshopping their cats - and other pets - onto the poster and the resulting pictures are honestly purrfect. (Sorry not sorry for the pun) The trending hashtag is in Korean and it translates to Captain Marvel - My House Goose.

  13. When it comes to new-age and sophisticated fashion, Blenders Pride Fashion Tour has been at the forefront of it all. From defining and celebrating talent to being the epitome of style and fashion in India, the 14th edition of Blenders Pride Fashion Tour saw the idea of Pride come alive on the ramp walk by country's top-notch fashion designers. But why pride? The theme of Pride was launched with the objective of instilling a sense of positive emotion, something that is relevant with today's youth. Blenders Pride Fashion Tour with its new theme wanted to bring alive various aspects of pride, and thanks to designers like Tarun Tahiliani, Rohit Bal, Gaurav Gupta and Ashish Soni, they did a fabulous job in conceptualising pride and how. Muse, Glamour, Pride And Everything In Between: Blenders Pride Fashion Tour was jaws-dropping splendid, right from the start. The tour even got a stylist at the preview, when the four designers with their respective muse unveiled the theme - My Style, My Pride. With Meher Rampal, Rajiv Makhani, Diana Penty and The Crow donning some of the most stunning outfits designed by the master craftsmen of Indian fashion industry, the audience was in for a stylish treat. Amalgamation Of Fashion & Pride: Tarun Tahiliani's theme of My Blend, My Pride amalgamated Indian roots with Western sensibilities. The show focused on experiential fashion where there was music, performance art, and ramp walks. Disha Patani took everyone's hearts away as the showstopper. Blender's Pride Next show was at The Taj Falaknuma, Hyderabad, which saw Gaurav Gupta's theme of My Expression, My Pride come alive. His expression was well featured through his structural designs combined with fluidity. It was new-age couture - experimental, feminine and thoughtful. To demonstrate this, Kangana Ranaut & Aditi Rao Hydari took the stage with panache. Blender's Pride Rohit Bal's creation - My Heritage My Pride - was inspired by the Indian culture. There were classic silhouettes featuring sunflowers, poppies, Moghul designs and more. The show took place at the magnificent Bandra Fort, and the legendary Shubha Mudgal mesmerized the audience with her magical voice. Diana Penty and Siddharth Malhotra looked like a dream and walked the ramp. Blender's Pride The last leg of Blenders Pride Fashion Tour comprised Ashish Soni's monochromatic collection in the city of dreams, Kolkata. His showcase of the theme My Identity My Pride, had stylishly cut pieces which were stark and yet stunning. And with Sushmita Sen donning his outfit, it became the perfect end to this fantastic tour. Blenders Pride Fashion Tour was beyond an event. It was the depiction of Pride, and what the emotion means to every individual.
  14. Anand Mahindra is not only one of the richest people of the country, but he also sits on the goldmine of inspiration, funny and entertaining things and everything in between. We're talking about his Twitter account and his over 6 million followers can vouch for the same. Recently, Mahindra proved once again that he is not only one of the richest businessmen, but also the coolest and possibly the funniest amongst his counterparts. In case you missed it, Mahindra-owned Italian carmaker Automobili Pininfarina unveiled its luxury electric 'hypercar' Battista at the Geneva Motor Show, on Tuesday. For those of you who asked for a better view of the car. This white #Battista is on display at the @PininfarinaSpA site. The blue was my favourite but I now think the white is even more stunning.. Watch when you have a leisurely couple of minutes... Don't fast forward. Savour it! pic.twitter.com/1iH5yt8oTk — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) March 6, 2019 Priced at around $2 million, the Battista is considered to be faster than a Formula 1 car. Well, no matter how fast a car is, desi people have only one concern when it comes to cars - "kitna deti hai?" Sir, kitna deti hai? ð — Drop C Riffs (@vox_assamanipur) March 6, 2019 We're not kidding, this was exactly what someone asked on Twitter for Battista. But, being the king of wits that Mahindra is, he answered the query in the sassiest way possible. He wrote, "Sirji, electric hai..Shock deti hai! (It's electric... it'll give a shock)" Sirji, electric hai..Shock deti hai! ð https://t.co/nhbrwHAARQ — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) March 6, 2019 People were left in splits after reading his epic reply and as expected, showered him with praises for his wit. According to reports, the Battista is said to be the first hypercar which is ultra-light and ultra-fast. According to Pininfarina, only 150 Battistas will be made, each with a 1,900 horsepower engine that can go from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in less than two seconds.
  15. If you have been following the news around PUBG, then you are probably aware of the fact that it's been receiving a lot of flak for being highly addictive. Earlier this year, the Gujarat government banned school kids from playing PUBG, and now, it looks like the Surat district administration has imposed a ban on PUBG Mobile because of the increase in violent behaviour among the children. According to the administration, the game was affecting the academic performance of the students The circular to ban the game has reportedly been sent to a number of primary education officers of the district. The primary objective is to reduce the number of cases coming from PUBG Mobile addiction. As per the notice, the ban will be imposed in Rajkot from March 9 to April 30. Anyone can file a complaint and inform the nearest police station against whoever is playing the game. The police is said to take action under the Central Government Act Section 188. © Tencent Mobile Jagruti Pandya, Chairperson of Gujarat Child rights body, has also issued a recommendation to the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) in order to ban PUBG Mobile in the state. Jagruti was quoted saying, "The NCPCR had sent a letter to all the states and recommended a ban on the game. All the states are required to implement it. Looking at the negative effects of the game, we had recently sent a letter to the state government recommending a ban on the game." Source: Timesnownews
  16. Remember how much outrage there was when it became mandatory for all movie theatres to play the National Anthem before every movie? Well, Air India is also now doing something slightly similar. According to an Air India advisory, that was issued to all the crew members yesterday, they now have to say 'Jai Hind' with a “slight pause and much fervour” after every single announcement that is made. Yep. The patriotism is all set to take off. Air India crew now needs to announce "Jai Hind" on all its flights as per a new order today: pic.twitter.com/2Adtr34eTK — Tarun Shukla (@shukla_tarun) March 4, 2019 As expected, it got a lot of reactions online with people making fun of it, to straight up calling it forced nationalism. Here's what everyone is saying: Maybe. Now with this new move, I'm sure Air India will soon become profitable. Jai Hind! pic.twitter.com/5Am6UyiQPe — Harsh Goenka (@hvgoenka) March 4, 2019 Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti also had some inputs. Little surprise that with General Elections around the corner, the josh of patriotism hasn't even spared the skies. https://t.co/AyVvEPDU3u — Mehbooba Mufti (@MehboobaMufti) March 5, 2019 Jai Hind, but with a question mark. “Air India regret the delay in the departure of your flight” ...(slight pause) ... “Jai Hind”? — shiven surendranath (@shivens) March 4, 2019 That's exactly how it will go down. What then will transpire in an emergency situation once the announcement becomes a habit? 1 sec lost for every direction issued? Find nearest exit, jai hind. Look for oxygen masks, jai hind. Find floatation device beneath seat, jai hin-- https://t.co/SVrPiQLcGa — medhachakrabartty (@medhac1) March 4, 2019 It honestly does. First, a demand that audiences in cinema halls stand up for the national anthem, and now this! All Indians love India, national sentiment comes naturally. No need to force feed nationalism down our throats! India deserves better ! https://t.co/L2VxdV3JtM — Malini Parthasarathy (@MaliniP) March 5, 2019 I like how the tweet ended. Air India crew has been instructed to say 'Jai Hind' after every announcement in the flight! 'Muscular nationalism' is THE ISSUE in 2019. Jai Hind! pic.twitter.com/sCNPmE2Jdp — Sukesh Ranjan (@RanjanSukesh) March 4, 2019 Please don't. As per a new order Air India crew have to say 'Jai Hind' after every announcement on all flights. Please don't forget to salute if you see one flying in the sky. — Ram Subramanian (@VORdotcom) March 4, 2019 It sure is! Air India announcements now end with "Jai hind" - was this always the case it is it new? Either way it's embarrassing. — radhika vaz (@radvaz) September 26, 2017 I will honestly do it for first class. No not enough. The crew must also yell “how's the josh?” Once everybody has boarded. The loudest “high sir” and “jai hind” shall be upgraded to first class. — Divyank Panwar (@divyank_14) March 4, 2019 Yes. while landing everyone is supposed to sing national anthem as well? — ivansikorsky (@ivan_sikorsky) March 4, 2019 Yes, this too. Next what, National Anthem before take off? https://t.co/OjJZzbBTt2 — Srivatsa (@srivatsayb) March 4, 2019
  17. The fitness industry is booming and along with it, there are a number of fitness expos held across the country. With these tens of expos, there are at least twenty different bodybuilding shows that happen every year. Every passing year, the number of federations or competitions is increasing as a lot of youngsters want to become bodybuilders. Competing in a bodybuilding show is not wrong, but it is important for you to know a few things before you consider stepping on that stage: 1. It Will Take A Lot More Than Just Having Abs These days, anyone who has abs thinks they are meant for the bodybuilding stage. The fact is, 90 per cent of them are not. Having abs or being lean vs. being shredded are two different things. Bodybuilding means having great overall muscularity, having a balanced physique, being presentable, and being shredded. Just because you have abs does not mean you have to be on stage. If you want to compete, ensure that you have all of the above things to stand a chance. 2. The Prep Sucks Bodybuilding prep is not easy. There will be times you are angry, frustrated, hungry, and exhausted. There will be days where you will not even feel like moving from your bed too. There will be cravings. But these are the times you will have to suck it up and do what needs to be done. It is mentally stressful and can even affect your relationships. So, if you are not in a place to handle all these other pressures, doing a show may end up being one of the worst decisions of your life. © Unsplash 3. There Will Be A Lot Of Fake Natties 'Natural bodybuilding' has either become an elite thing or a joke. I honestly cannot decide. I leave it up to you. The reason I say this is because there are shows that claim to be 'natural' for aspiring natural bodybuilders, however, they are anything but natural. Just having the tag 'natural' after the show's name does not mean jack! Natural federations check their athletes thoroughly and randomly throughout the year. The shows held here in India do not do anything of the sort and are often seen firing the promoters the next year as the 'promoter' tested positive for drugs. 4. You Will Be Forgotten Most of the bodybuilding shows in India are just businesses. Every year, three to five new bodybuilding shows are introduced. They make new promises and take higher entry fees every passing year. You pay it, you get done, and that is that. Hardly are there good prizes in most shows and competitors are rising by the 100s every year. Even if you win a show, there is a great chance that nobody will remember you the next year, unless you are competing at a very high level. The entry level or novice shows are hardly remembered or even cared about. © Pixabay 5. Politics Exists In bodybuilding shows, you will fight politics at every level between federations, between promoters, between judges! I have personally seen competitors winning shows where they outright ignored judging calls and should have been disqualified within a minute of stepping on stage. I have seen the best guy not placing even in the top 5. Now, this would be a personal bias but you could check it out when you go and watch a show. The politics is real and even if you end up being the best athlete, there is a good chance you are going home empty handed. So ask yourself the question, is all of this worth competing in a show? If your answer is still yes, you should totally do a show.

  18. The Khurana brothers are perhaps the most stylish siblings in Bollywood right now, and even though Ayushmann usually is the forerunner in terms of kickass style moves, Aparshakti is not far behind at all. He just demonstrated it once again with his accessory game, by wearing an industrial belt that's more than 6 Feet 7 Inches in length. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Aparshakti is wearing the Off-White industrial yellow belt that was showcased first during Virgil Abloh's Fall-Winter collection in 2016. The yellow belt runs a super extra length of 205 cm and has an adjustable metal buckle. Of course, he had to wrap it around 2-3 times. © Hypebeast Off-White is famous for creating pieces that set the wearer apart in a crowd, and this clearly is one of those statement pieces of accessories. The fact that Aparshakti is wearing it with a basic black T-shirt and a relaxed pair of black trousers, shows that the man understands the nuances of subtle street style. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Coming to how much it costs, the belt is worth 211 USD, which when converted to NR comes close to about Rs 15,000. But when one piece can transform your entire ensemble, we guess it's worth it after all.
  19. The cricketing world has seen some of the most extreme examples of sledging in recent history. If you want to learn how to be a classic sledger, challenging your opponents through psychological warfare, getting under their skin and finding the minutest of opportunities to irk them, so that they do something foolish in anger or because of being too distracted mouthing off to you, you have to learn that from the epic rivalry we got to see between the Indian and Australian wicketkeepers Rishabh Pant and Tim Paine. Stump mic on ð It's cricket like never before, no commentary in the whole over ð®#AUSvIND #foxcricket pic.twitter.com/8R2nwVMa9W — Fox Cricket (@FoxCricket) December 10, 2018 On the contrary, if you want to learn the kind of things that are a complete 'No-No' when it comes to banter-talks in cricket, you have to let Pakistani captain Sarfraz Ahmed become your master, who not only went too far with his words but also managed to make the entire nation of South Africa despise him with his ultra-racist comments. Sarfaraz Ahmed to Andile Phehlukwayo: "abbay kaale teri Ami kahan bethi hoyi hain aaj, kya parhwa kay aya hai aaj" "black man wheres your mother sat? What have you asked your mother to pray for you today?"#SAvPAK pic.twitter.com/vw6yuE73OE — Saj Sadiq (@Saj_PakPassion) January 22, 2019 Trash-talking should display cunningness. It should be the things that, on the surface appears to be nothing much but on the inside, it eats up the victim with rage and frustration. Exhibit A: Australian spinner, Adam Zampa's sly comments about getting the Indian skipper Virat Kohli out for cheap on two of three encounters they have had during their time here in India. Adam Zampa has dismissed Virat Kohli twice on the Aussie's tour of India, and he's ready for a rematch in Nagpur, writes @samuelfez https://t.co/WMnKEaPkuM #INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/1MVcviL88y — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) March 4, 2019 Zampa has had the pleasure of sending Kohli back to the dressing room twice. While the first came during the first T20I when Kohli made just 24 runs in an India loss, the second dismissal came during the previous ODI match when the leggy trapped Kohli in front of the wickets and the third-umpire responded in favour of the bowler on an LBW appeal upon a DRS review. “It's also one of those things where he (Virat Kohli) probably won't want to get out to me again...” said the 26-year-old, while admitting that his team takes some extra time out figuring out a plan to try and send Kohli packing early. If anyone knows anything about the captain of the Indian side, they know that Kohli lives and breathes competition. He strives on opponents calling him out in public and then shutting them up with his batting performance, followed by some of the best celebrations ever (hinting: 'mic drop' against Joe Root and Team England. With the second match scheduled for today, we have to see how Kohli responds to Zampa's taunts.
  20. Realme is a very young brand and intends to take over the budget phone segment in India. They've launched a new phone every quarter in an effort to cover up every possible price bracket. The brand has been targeting its phones towards the youth and hence, focuses on performance and design the most. With the Realme 3, the brand wants to lure buyers with its powerful MediaTek Helio P70 chipset. The new processor has performed extremely well in our previous review of the Realme U1, and now it's available at an even better price. (c) MensXP/Shivam Vahia On the front, it has a 6.2-inch HD+ display (1520 x 720 resolution) and comes with Gorilla Glass protection. Realme claims it has achieved 88.30 per cent screen-to-body ratio thanks to a small water-drop style notch. Like we've said, the new P70 processor has four cores clocked at 2.1Ghz and boasts 15 per cent lesser power consumption when compared to previous generation offering. It also has a multi-threaded APU for AI processing. It comes in to two variants, 3GB RAM + 32GB storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. The internal memory is expandable via a microSD card. (c) MensXP/Shivam Vahia The rear houses a 13-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. For authentication, a fingerprint scanner is located on the back and it also supports face unlock. For low-light pictures, Realme has included a Nightscape mode that improves the quality of pictures using AI. A Chroma Boost mode also helps in producing better colour by adjusting exposure and dynamic range. For selfies, a 13-megapixel camera has been provided on the front. Backing these innards is a 4230mAh battery. The phone ships with ColorOS 6.0, built on top of Android 9.0 Pie. The software has kept many stock Android elements untouched and added features include Game Space and quick app drawer on the left. (c) MensXP/Shivam Vahia The 3GB + 32GB option is priced at Rs 8,999 and the 4GB + 64GB variant is priced at Rs 10,999 . Sales start from March 12thh via online channels. The phone will be going up against the recently launched Redmi Note 7, Nokia 5.1 Plus, and ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2. It'll be interesting to see how the brand is able to continue its steady rise in the country considering the competitive environment.
  21. In 1999, Sooraj Barjatya came up with 'Hum Saath Saath Hain', a movie that gave us the iconic song 'ABCDEFGHI...I LOVE YOU' (is it just me or you too sang this while reading it), and gave Salman Khan a bag full of controversies. Now, after a decade, people are going crazy over 'Hum Saath Saath Hain' once again for the most hilariously relatable reason. After a hiatus of 5 years, the Jonas Brothers are back in business and have released their latest song 'Sucker', which also features their respective partners Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Sophie Turner and Danielle Jonas. While 'Sucker' is a huge hit globally and has already garnered over 33 million views in 48 hours, in India, the song ended up making 'Hum Saath Saath Hain' trend, as people couldn't help but draw funny comparisons between the two. Jonas Brothers While most of us were busy laughing on the joke, someone actually went ahead and created a parody video that will leave you in splits.

  22. What started out as a democratic debate on live TV for Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) professor Madhumita Ray, soon turned into a war of words and might, when she went on national television to say that India should opt for peace and not war when it comes to dealing with Pakistan, post the deadly Pulwama terror attack. Following the debate on Kanak News on 18th February, which also featured Colonel Purna Chandra Patnaik (retd.) of the Indian Army, where she urged that India shouldn't resort to war against Pakistan post the Pulwama attack, the Development Theory & Practice and Sociology professor at KIIT was asked to hand in her resignation. (c) KIIT/LinkedIN Social media erupted after the programme was aired and under the pressure of public scrutiny and wrath, the KIIT management asked Madhumita to quit. “On February 20, I was ordered by the management to resign and leave the university within 24 hours. I did so on the next day.” Madhumita told Odisha Sun Times. However, KIIT has said that public complaints led to this action against Madhumita. However, regardless of what her statement brings her way, Madhumita has stood by her words and beliefs. She told Odisha Sun Times, “I feel what I said is right and stand by my words. War is not at all a solution.” We believe that Madhumita's comment should have been received with graciousness and a liberal approach, expected of a democratic nation where every individual is allowed to keep their point and express their personal opinions, just like how others who disagree with a said opinion are allowed to express their dissent. I know Madhumita Ray too, & I hope better sense prevails in Kalinga Institute. https://t.co/QEeVbbA86E — arkajasingh (@arkajasingh) February 26, 2019 At a time when hate and intolerance come easy, we need to look for ways that ensure that innocent lives are not treated as collateral damage, when it comes to dealing with matters of border security and geographies, as far as possible. But to take away someone's means of livelihood for sharing their opinion, and one that is rooted in experience and concern, is unjust and unfortunate. Considering that Madhumita wasn't even given a notice period goes on to show that KIIT has not just been unethical, but also unprofessional in handling the matter.
  23. Eggs are one of the cheapest protein sources in the market, and are also one of the highest quality ones. It's very common amongst bodybuilders, powerlifters and fitness enthusiasts as a staple edible. With this piece, there are some myths which I would like to debunk. 1) Eggs Give You Acne And Pimples Well, it's not true. You have to get it to check with your dermatologist and get a food allergy test done. There is no evidence yet, so you can't blame eggs here. 2) Too Many Egg Whites Harm Your Kidneys There is a study that claims that if you eat more protein over time, you will not face any kidney issues. © Thinkstock Images 3) Eggs Are Only For Fitness Enthusiasts And Bodybuilders An egg is a food which can be consumed by anyone. It has no relation with fitness enthusiast or an ordinary human being. 4) There Is A Certain Limit To Consuming Eggs Well, there is no limit when it comes down to consumption. It all depends on your protein and fat intake. Nutrition facts in an egg Protein- 6g Fats- 5g Carbs- 1g Calories- 73 Nutrition facts in an egg white Protein- 3.6g Fats- 0g Carbs- 0g Calories- 14.4 Here are some top reasons why you should eat eggs when dieting: 1) Eggs Are Low In Calories And High In Protein One large egg contains about 73 calories and has 6g of protein. A meal consisting of 4 boiled eggs and some vegetables contains only about 350 calories. 2) Eggs Are Very Filling Studies have repeatedly shown that egg meals increase fullness and reduce food intake during later meals, compared to other meals with the same calorie content. A high-protein diet has a higher thermogenic effect when compared with a low protein diet. © Thinkstock Images 3) Eggs Are One Of The Ideal Foods To Start Your Day A study from Nutrition Research in men showing that an egg breakfast significantly decreased calorie intake for the next 24 hours, compared to a bagel breakfast. The egg group eaters also felt more satiated. Furthermore, an egg breakfast caused more stable blood glucose and insulin response, while also crushing ghrelin (the hunger hormone). 4) Eggs Are Easy To Cook Incorporating eggs into your diet is very easy. They are cheap, widely accessible and can be made within minutes. Eggs are scrumptious and you can make them in any form, but fitness enthusiasts often prefer boiled, scrambled, made into an omelette or baked.

  24. NASCAR races are extremely fun to watch. The sight of sports cars covered in sponsored logos just whizzing past in a split of a second, the sound of engines working on overload combined with the smell of burning tyres grinding against asphalt just gives a rush of adrenaline to the viewer. What makes the sport so exciting, rather nerve-wracking, is the fear of a blunder that could take place even with the slightest of nudges between the races that are going at 320 kph. Car crashes are pretty common in racing events, much like NASCAR Daytona 500 which produced one of the biggest collisions in the history of the sport. When driver Paul Menard tried to do a 'bump and run' around Matt DiBenedetto's car number 95, he nudged the rear passenger side of DiBenedetto's ride resulting in it to spin out in the middle of the race track while knocking out 17 cars in his way with the race in its last leg. Although nobody got injured during the crash, which is miraculous to say the least and Menard took complete responsibility for the entire incident, what prepares a race driver's psyche to take the hit during the smash is worth talking about. In an interview with Tampa Bay Times, NASCAR driver and one of the sufferers of the Daytona crash, Aric Almirola shares his experience. “At a certain point in the wreck, you're just kind of along for the ride. The initial instinct is to try to drive the car and avoid the wreck. Once you know that you're in the wreck, you kind of just brace for impact,” said the driver. “A lot of people take their hands off the steering wheel, but that is very unnatural for me. I keep my hands on the steering wheel. I kind of lock my elbow in and just, everything tenses up and tightens up and you brace for impact.” Amongst the first cars to get involved in the chain reaction that Menard had started, Almirola's ride (# 10) got tagged behind car #12 and almost did a somersault. Due to the momentum of the drag in favour of the car, Almirola stayed on his wheels and didn't turn over. © NASCAR In totality, the crash led to wrecking 21 cars (almost half of the contestants) but luckily not a single driver got injured. Obviously, it wasn't long before people took to Twitter to show their concerns towards the mishap and the safety of the racers: This still amazes me how big this crash was even for Daytona #NASCAR #Daytona500 pic.twitter.com/Shh7tLzp0c — Penske17 (@Penske_17) February 20, 2019 Now that's a nasty crash... #Daytona — Steve Twynstra (@SteveTwynstra) February 17, 2019 The biggest Daytona 500 crash of the whole night!!! pic.twitter.com/dvYojiuAzG — Gameoholic1994 (@gameoholic1994) February 17, 2019 Daytona 500.

  25. With the iPhone X, Apple completely ditched the home button in favour of gestures. The gesture navigation system was soon rolled out by multiple Android OEMs, even though Android doesn't natively support it. Currently, Android OS relies on three core navigation buttons: back button, home button and a recents tab. Google combined the home and recents buttons in Android 9 but kept the back button untouched. Though, this could change in the upcoming Android Q update. © YouTube According to a report by XDA Developers, Google is now planning to completely ditch the conventional Back button to opt for a gesture-based navigation system. And this is a good thing for all of us. Gestures are for sure the future of smartphone navigation, and with core support, the user experience will be drastically better. Google last year launched Android Pie with a new one-touch button and lots of gesture features. Though, the update let users switch back to the older method of navigation. © YouTube Even though a lot of Android phones have gesture navigation available as an option, it works due to the external skin or UI that the OEM has made. This isn't always as smooth and intuitive as native support. In comparison, Apple's navigation is extremely fluid due to deeper software integration. Swiping left on the screen will enable users to go back and swiping right will take users from their current app to the previous app in a card-like transition. Swifter animations are another major revamp that Google could bring with the update. © Google Google shall be announcing the next major update to Android at Google I/O developer conference, that is scheduled for 7 May. Google is also expected to launch a redesigned app info screen with “Material Theme”. There are also rumours that Google could finally bring a system-wide dark mode and even more detailed privacy controls. Google intends to make it easier for users to understand and determine the permissions they are giving to an app. Please keep in mind, these reports are based on early builds of Android Q, an official feature announcements is pending.
