  1. The wonderful and magical power that parents possess, lies in their selfless love and their acceptance of us, the way we are. A good parent is not someone who just splurges on you, but is someone who lets you believe that they are not judgemental of the primitive choices you make in your life. Howie Dittman, a 44-year-old man living in Pittsburgh is also a parent, but last week, he ended up being the internet's favourite dad. When Howie found out about a pride parade in Pittsburgh and saw his friend volunteering to give 'mom hugs', he decided to do something similar and participated in the parade, offering 'dad hugs' to the kids who were rejected by their own families. He shared his experience and how impactful a small gesture can be. "Imagine that, parents. Imagine that your child feels SO LOST FROM YOU that they sink into the arms of a complete stranger and sob endlessly just because that stranger is wearing a shirt offering hugs from a dad," he wrote. These pictures of Mr Dittman went viral and its been touching and melting very heart on the internet since then. would be remiss if i did not give a shout out to the huge pflag dad marching in the denver pride parade wearing a FREE DAD HUGS shirt, who joyfully gave me my first big, encompassing, father's day dad hug in five entire years — casey mcquiston â¤ï¸ð ON TOUR! (@casey_mcquiston) June 17, 2019 Howie Dittman. Everyday hero. â¤https://t.co/lV8hZA9lqk — rebecca (@mamabexx) June 13, 2019 So many people reached out to Howie, thanking him and expressing their love and gratitude, as these pictures spark pure joy! Kindness and love cost you nothing because the best things in the world are not actually bought! Love comes in every shade and as humans, judging anyone, especially the people we love, for who they decide to love is unfair. This dad is 'dad goals' in the truest sense.
  2. Bihar is currently undergoing a massive outbreak of Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) that has led to the death of over 100 children in the state in the past two weeks. The situation was critical and there was a dire need for taking rapid action to deal with the epidemic and have as much damage control as possible. In order to figure out a plan of action quickly, Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan carried out a press meet along with Ashwini Kumar Choubey, Minister Of State for Health and Family Welfare and Bihar's Health Minister, Mangal in Muzaffarpur on Sunday. However, instead of showing their concerns towards the loss of life for the young infants of the state, the Health Minister seemed more interested in the ICC World Cup match between India and Pakistan. Check out the shocking video shared by the official Twitter handle on ANI: #WATCH Bihar Health Minister Mangal Pandey asks for latest cricket score during State Health Department meeting over Muzaffarpur Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) deaths. (16.6.19) pic.twitter.com/EVenx5CB6G — ANI (@ANI) June 17, 2019 “Kitna wicket hua tha?” asked the politician wishing to know how many wickets had fallen in the game. This kind of insensitivity shown by the representative towards his people, especially during such a crisis led to the opposition demanding an immediate resignation from Pandey. "Pandey was more interested in knowing the cricket score while Harsh Vardhan was telling mediapersons on they plans to alleviate the situation arising from the encephalitis outbreak," IANS quoted RJD leader Ram Chandra Purve. The unfortunate and heartbreaking incident comes after Minister Of State for Health and Family Welfare Ashwini Kumar Choubey was being extensively criticised for sleeping at another press conference on the mass outbreak to which he had replied by saying that he was indulged in “deep thought” and was not asleep. Twitter is livid with the inconsiderate behaviour of the ministers and their reactions are completely justified: They all should be sacked with immediate effect by Modi. — The Baba (@whateverbaba) June 17, 2019 Score: #IndiaVsPakistan in #Bihar ð #AcuteEncephalitisSyndrome crosses the 100 mark as Pakistan failed to control the outbreak in #Muzaffarpur ðWhose negligence?

  3. Jason Momoa is not just admired for his choice of roles, his insane body and chiselled features, but also for the way he thinks about his family, cultural values and his expression of love for his wife and kids. The 'Game Of Thrones' actor celebrated Father's Day yesterday with his kids and unlike most people, his celebrations did not include going out for dinner or running for a swim but actually building a Harley-Davidson bike with his family heirlooms in the company of his kids. He spoke about how he grew up without a dad and therefore, being a wonderful parent to his kids was his top priority and the idea was to build something together which could be a memory they all share. “I'm a husband and a father and it is the greatest honour of my life. It has taken three decades in the making [to build the bike] – the longest dream I have ever held onto. And now, the best part is I get to share that dream with my children and the people that I love. I'm 40 [Jason turns 40 on August 1], and I finally built a bike. There are people who come into our lives like guiding spirits, providing the missing lesson we need. Teachers become friends, and friends become family”, Jason says, proving he is truly the 'moon of our moon'. © YouTube He fulfilled his own dream of building a bike with his kids and that proves that the best things in life cannot be bought. So, build more memories, spend more time with your parents, because tomorrow is not promised and today is all we have.

  5. There is something special about our men in green, won't you agree? Dressed in their crisp camo-green uniforms, with stand-out medals and stripes pinned over their proud, selfless heart evokes a kind of respect and admiration that is exclusively reserved for our greatest warriors who make up our motherland's most formidable protectors. However, given the sort of picture our mind paints when we say “army dad”, it wouldn't be wrong to state that somehow, certain aspects from their field of work often tends to rub onto the image of “army dads”. For years now, Indian television has fed its audience with a certain image of an army dad - someone who is strong yet stern, doesn't give in to strong emotions easily, is a man of few words, lives by the book and treats the world as his oyster. (c) Getty Images But, surely you don't believe all of that to be true, right? There's got to be an affectionate father's heart thrumming quietly but firmly, under that tough shell of a persona they put on everytime they don their uniforms. Like any other father on this planet, their hearts brim with love, pride, hopes and dreams for their children. Like most father's, army dads are quick to make sacrifices too but theirs always weighs heavier because it comes easily not only for their kids but also for their motherland. (c) Getty Images Army dads don't get to be around their family and children as often as they'd like, or for as long as they'd want. Duty beckons them and somehow their country always 'seems' to surpass the children to grab the top spot. Still, that never stops them from going all out looking out for them as fiercely as their motherland. There is a lot we are unaware of when it comes to a father's love towards his child, and an army dad is somehow a step ahead even here because there is so little we get to know about their personal lives. (c) Getty Images This Father's Day, we caught up with army dads and asked them to tell us their side of the story, and throw some light on the kind of relationship they share with their children given their demanding job and busy schedules. When we asked Colonel Khan Mahmood how being in the Army impacted his relationship with his kids, he told us that, “With great pride, I state that I am a third generation Army Officer. My father Late Col SA Khan has tutored me to spend quality time whenever possible. With my wife's support the impact on the relationship with both my sons has been excellent!” (c) Twitter Yet, Col Khan didn't shy away from admitting that he did miss out on some significant milestones in his sons' lives that he wishes he could make up for. Talking about it he said, “Life is certainly not a bed of roses.Who knows it better than a man proudly donning the Olive Green. I have missed out on various precious moments. Won't say 'regret' but yes I would have loved to see both my sons taking their 'first step' towards progress.” However, regardless of it all, when Col Khan shared his favourite Father's Day memory it left us beaming, just like him. He said, “For our generation 'Father's Day' is everyday. The day my 3-year-old elder son gave me a Father's Day card and wished me in the most adorable style, made me promise to try to be the best father to my sons, and best son to my father.” That isn't all, here is what other Army Dads told us about their special bonds with their children.

  6. Coming from a small village of Kheri Kalan in the suburb of Faridabad, Sargar 'The Sher' Narwat is undefeated in the super welterweight category and boasts a record of 9 wins, 0 losses and 1 draw with a knockout rate of 30%. One to consider winning and losing is part of the game Narwat is a believer of continuous training and constantly putting in his best effort in practice. “It is only because of my dedication and passion for boxing that I am undefeated right now,” he says. In his journey to national and eventually international glory, Narwat has received a lot of support from nation, especially ever since one of his amateur bouts went viral on social media and people began to take notice of the pugilist. “I considered myself to be extremely lucky to have the support of so many boxing fans of India. While it adds a lot of pressure on me to perform better inside the ring, it also gives me great honour to represent my country in grand, international events.” View this post on Instagram When you win, say nothing, when you lose, say less.” @megaboxing_in @royalsportspromotions @nitesh_narwat @lzpromotions @ankitnarwatphotography @siddhantkapoor_photography #theshernarwat #sagarnarwatboxer #india #crossfit #crossfitboys #backontrack #crazyfrmypassion #usaboxing #bigaim #hardwork #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel #athlete #strength #beliveinhardwork #boxingtraning #boxinglegend #boxinghype #boxeo #boxinglife #boxinggym #knockout #sport #ko #taekwondo #kickboxing #jiujitsu #muaythai #fightnight A post shared by Sagar Narwat ð®ð³ (@sagarnarwatboxer) on May 5, 2019 at 7:18am PDT Ever since turning pro, Narwat has played in several Boxing leagues in India, Super Boxing League being one of his first. “During my tenure with SBL, one of my fights was against a great Army boxer who had won a lot of professional matches in the past while I was a complete nobody at the time,” Narwat recalls. After dodging his massive swings and throwing timely punches while constantly trying to calm my nerves, I was finally able to beat him. That is when I got the name 'The Sher'”. “I love this name that the boxing brethren has given me and I hope to continue to do justice to it in the future.” Currently, Narwat is under contract with Mega Boxing, India's first Professional Boxing Intellectual Property, which is recognised by the World Boxing Organization (WBO) with an aim to position professional boxing as a premium sporting entertainment entity and under the guidance of the world class coaching the organisation provides, is training to contest for the World Championship title in super welterweight category that currently rests with Mexico's Jaime Munguia. View this post on Instagram @lzpromotions and @sagarnarwatboxer are pleased to announce an USA management contract. Super Boxing League Middleweight Champion Sagar will continue to fight in the SBL.

Taking Boxing and Sports to #1 Globally Together #ð®ð³ GTown #boxing #news #jat #jaat #life #theshernarwat #sagarnarwatboxer #bullet #delhi #usa A post shared by Sagar Narwat ð®ð³ (@sagarnarwatboxer) on Feb 22, 2019 at 8:06am PST Narwat sees a lot of potential in the younger kids of his village as boxers, and has taken upon himself to train them to one day become world class fighters. “Every day, I train the kids of my village both in the morning and the evening. Kids in my village have always wanted to box. Back when I was their age, we have no boxing rings or academies. We used to get together at any 'chowki' and begin sparring. If under such untrained conditions, boxers from Kheri Kalan have gone to do so well. Imagine what can happen if they are trained professionally!” View this post on Instagram @singhvijender @pardeepkharera1 @roshan5256 @sachin_dekwal_official #team #Roshan A post shared by Sagar Narwat ð®ð³ (@sagarnarwatboxer) on Dec 14, 2017 at 7:57am PST Even though, the better half of Narwat's day is spent working with the kids, his vision of becoming the greatest boxer in the world remains unshaken. “I train the young fighters every morning and evening to the best of my abilities and I train myself in between the sessions, in the afternoon.” “Boxing is such a game that the day your training gets flawed and you stop giving your 100% in the ring, the next aspiring boxer will replace you within a split second. Even if I do not have a match scheduled for the next day or the next week, my training continues with the same intensity.” He finally urges the upcoming boxers to never settle. “If you've won a match, great. Move on to the next one where the stakes are higher. People get way too relaxed after winning a bout. they become casual about their training, the food they eat. Never be satisfied with what you have achieved till now, always reach for the stars.”
  7. Being a parent, who brings about gender-neutrality when their child is growing up, is a very essential part of their upbringing. What is gender-neutrality when it comes to raising kids today? It's when parents raise their kids in an environment which does not force any preconceived gender norms upon them to adhere to. While you may think gender norms are subjective and some are more stereotyped than the others, the ardent belief that men should be raised a particular way, which distinguishes them for being men in the first place, is what's problematic in society. (c)Pintrest Today, there is a need for mothers and fathers to raise their children in a gender-neutral environment where discouraging them to pick up a few activities just because it doesn't fit a particular gender role should be overlooked and processed differently. It's problematic to feed men with the notion that it's not okay to be emotional or too sensitive or tell women their place is in the kitchen or as homemakers. It's a choice that both the parents have to give their children to make and follow, respectively. (c)Pintrest Most men today are raised by their mothers because it's a basic bond and any mother who's raising a child knows how to do it best. Mothers are leaning towards gender-neutral parenting and this Mother's Day, we gathered 5 men who spoke about gender-neutral things their mothers taught them, while they were growing up: (1) It's Absolutely Okay To Show Emotions! "I was always raised believing if you have a feeling or an emotion, it's absolutely okay to share it and show it. Hiding behind a garb of manliness and denying your own emotion can be quite toxic and dissatisfying. My mother, in fact, always encouraged me to emote when I was going through a tough time rather than walking out of a room because it was difficult to process a particular emotion. I am very thankful for that because I recognise emotions very easily, not just in me and I help people open up and process them. Especially for my son, who is 10." Akshay Luthra, 38, Marketing Consultant. (c)Pintrest (2) Stay-At-Home Dads Shouldn't Be Looked Down Upon "I am stay-at-home father, which means my wife got promoted last year and couldn't find the time to look after the kids round the clock. I have two children and their upbringing is very important to me. So, I work from home and take care of them, while my wife goes to the office. She and I both implement the fact that its absolutely normal to be a stay-at-home dad and it's not a gender-specific role, just for the mother to stay home and take care of the house and children'' - Rohit Nanda, 39, Freelance Writer (c)Pintrest (3) Cooking Doesn't Challenge Masculinity "My mother always loved cooking and she was of the opinion anyone can cook. She never saw it as an activity for just women, where they cook and serve at all times. In fact, my sister was never encouraged to enter the kitchen. If her interest lay there, she definitely would have. But I loved to cook since a child and my mother always encouraged it. Today I have my own restaurants and I still love to cook. It was because of my mother I changed my hobby, to my work now" - Pritiyush Kalra, 35, Chef (4) A Choice Is A Choice "I was always fascinated by wearing non-boyish clothes as a kid. I mean, I liked all these colourful dresses and my mom's make-up. I would just stare at her getting ready and always go for her make-up when she wasn't around. I remember the day she caught me, I thought I would -be in big trouble. But she asked me what I liked about make-up and I said I liked the colours. She then told me it was my choice as to what I liked wearing and how I liked dressing and she would never make that for me. I am very grateful to her for making it easy to identify and accept my choices and my sexuality, when society refused to" - Ankit Moghe, 28, Make-Up Artist. (5) It's About Knowing What're You're Good At "I have been fond of classical dance since I was a child. I used to watch it on television and always start dancing at home. My mother saw that time and again and enrolled me in Bharatanatyam classes. My father was very against this decision and said it's only something girls should do. But my mother stuck her ground and today I am a professional dancer, running my own school. It has also taught me that gender-neutral parenting is very important. It doesn't confuse who you are, it enhances your belief in equal opportunity between the two genders and this is what I will impart to my children as well." - Romith Iyer, 29, Danseur (c)Pintrest Gender-neutral kids are more creative as they're given an opportunity to explore their own wants and needs without facing a bias or a discouragement in their expression of choice. It is fairly important to reduce gender importance and norms that classify as a staunchly patriarchal society. In fact, it's time to do away with the basics of patriarchy and equalise and normalise the effect both genders have, in society. This Mother's Day, these 5 men wish to thank their mother for giving them the ultimate lesson in life- embracing who and what you really are!
  8. While most of our teenage years revolved around juggling and complaining about the after school hours labour our schools passed off as “homework”, or making fancy strategies to decimate the other team on the playground, recent times have shown a tremendous change in the kind of teenagers growing in our midst. Gone are the days when fun and games ruled the lives of teenagers (apart from truck-loads of studying), now young geniuses have replaced regular teenagers - making the likes of us feeling pretty insignificant. © Getty Images From setting up their own businesses, to winning international competitions and creating mind-boggling devices, these young minds have achieved extraordinary feats. Not only have they inspired millions of people but have also made Indians proud through their impeccable achievements. Akshat Singh, the kid who had first become famous for shaking a leg with his idol Salman Khan on the iconic song 'Hud Hud Dabangg', went on to charm people with his moves on multiple reality shows in India. Later, we saw him make India proud on the popular US show 'Ellen Degeneres Show', with his wit and talent. © Akshat Singh Come 2019, and the young 13-year-old has rocked the entire city of London with his 'golden buzzer' performance on 'Britain's Got Talent'. His stellar dance performance compelled the judges to give him a standing ovation, while the hosts went ahead and pressed the golden buzzer for him. Talking about these experiences Akshat told MensXP, “Very few people get the chance to represent their country on such global platforms. I got the chance to make my nation, my parents and my school proud which makes me feel very lucky and happy.” © Akshat Singh Currently in class 9th, Akshat works hard to manage his studies and his passion, but he has no complaints about it. He says, “I usually study while travelling and between shows, but my only motive is to make others happy(through my work). I wish to become an actor in the future and want to tell others that nothing is impossible in life if you work hard and believe in yourself.” Merely a teenager, but Akshat's words of wisdom will leave you speechless. What's more, we shall soon be able to watch Akshat's performance on 'Britain's Got Talent' on Colors Infinity. But before we can do that, take a look at these other 4 Indian child prodigies who have made India proud globally. 1. Lydian Nadhaswaram © Twitter 13-year-old Lydian Nadhaswaram is a magician pianist and a child prodigy from Chennai. Lydian recently won the 'The World's Best' global talent contest and won a prize of 1 million dollars! Judges couldn't see his fingers move over the piano as Lydian played 280 beats per minute, and later increased his speed to 325 beats per minute, leaving both the judges and the rest of the world stunned by his talent. 2. Tanmay Bakshi © Twitter All of 15 years, Tanmay Bakshi is a well-known, self-taught coder & application developer who set out on this adventure at a tender age of 5. Tanmay is currently the World's Youngest IBM Watson Programmer & CEO, as well as the youngest Indian Artificial Intelligence expert based in Canada. 3. Aravindh Chithambaram © Twitter Touted as India's upcoming “Vishwanathan Anand”, Aravindh overcame staggering financial difficulties to become a grandmaster at the age of 15. At the age of 14, Aravindh was awarded International Master by FIDE, making him a star Indian chess player worthy of international recognition. 4. Harshwardhansinh Zala © Twitter Ahmedabad's pride, 16-year-old Harshwardhansinh is known for designing a drone named 'EAGLE A7' which is not only capable of detecting landmines, but can also destroy them. The drone can help minimize the risk of losing human lives during battles. He is the founder and CEO of Aerobotics 7 which aims to create 'smart technologies for a better world'.
  9. After making people wait for almost two years, the final season of 'Game Of Thrones' is finally here and looks like no one is as excited about the show as us. But, it's the Indian parents who are the happiest today. Why? Because what they or the alarm clocks couldn't do for years, the makers of 'GOT' did it in a single day - make people wake up at 5 AM. © HBO Until last week, people were looking for ways to deal with Monday blues and finding excuses to sleep a few more minutes. But, today things have changed and the only blue people are concerned about are the Night King's eyes. © HBO Turns out Indians are super excited to watch the first episode of season 8, but for free. So, instead of logging into Hotstar premium, they were busy looking for free alternatives. For that most people woke up around 5 AM to try downloading the episode for free from Torrent. © Quartz According to a report in Quartz, between 5 AM and 9 AM, Google Trends showed that 'Torrent file' was a more popular keyword than 'Hotstar' in India. © Quartz In fact, torrent sites like 'DIRECTV' and its misspelling 'direct tv' were among the rising trends. Honestly, the fact that people are looking for free alternatives to watch the episode does not surprise me as much as the fact that they woke up at 5 AM to do it. I mean, people across the country were setting alarm for 5 AM and 6:30 AM, not to catch an early morning flight or study for exams, but to watch the first episode of 'Game Of Thrones' season 8. And not just any day, a Monday. If you think I am exaggerating and the insane craze is a big lie, check out the tweets here where people are posting screenshots of alarms.

  10. "That night still haunts me. When I saw my dad butchered to death before my own eyes. It was terrifying, to live in the constant fear of imminent claws of death. Even the memory of it throws me back to a dark time in my own life, a time of helplessness and fear." For most of us, this is a sad story that moves people and brings tears to their eyes. But, there is someone somewhere who is living this horror every single day. Within an instant, they lose their home, families, language, occupation, everything and become refugees seeking shelter and safety. © enactus DCAC We live in the comfort of four walls, eat proper food, drink clean water, and get the best education possible. We are so protected and have everything at our disposal that we never realise how privileged we are. On one hand, where we start taking things for granted, on the other, there exists a parallel world where our basic necessities are somebody's luxury. They crave for it, they want it, but cannot afford it. We are talking about those who are underprivileged. © enactus DCAC The absence of government support, basic human rights and most of all absence of humanity from us, makes this community even more vulnerable. Some ignore the underprivileged and refugees, some pity them, but how many of us actually come forward to help them? Well, we don't know about you but a bunch of students sure are working towards their upliftment and in the process, are taking huge steps towards building a better society. Meet Enactus, an international non-profit student body spread across 36 countries with 144 chapters in India, which is working for the upliftment of the underprivileged and marginalised communities in their own right. One of their chapters in Delhi is looked by Delhi University's Delhi College of Arts and Commerce (DCAC). © enactus DCAC Enactus DCAC realised that because the refugees have little or no education, they are trapped in a vicious cycle of poverty and often find themselves getting drawn towards anti-social activities. So the students of this organisation decided to bring about a change, with the power vested in them and together they launched the project Taaleem, to provide quality primary education to the refugee children. © enactus DCAC Their strategy is simple, use a community-driven model of storytelling, and they have specially designed an Active Story Based Curriculum for them. Since these kids have not been to school, they have a huge learning gap irrespective of how old they are. So they analyse the learning and knowledge level of the kids and then divide them into groups on the basis of their learning levels instead of ages. © enactus DCAC These young college students have pledged to bring light and hope in the refugees' lives and change their lives for good. Apart from Taaleem, they are also working on CanSurvive, a project wherein they aim at selling prosthetic bras at a lesser rate and also break the taboo around breast cancer. If only more people could think like them, the world would be a better place to live in.

  12. The twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is currently in full flow, bringing some of the biggest names in cricket to represent eight cities in the country. Six games into the tournament, this season has already produced some of the blistering knocks, match-winning spells and electric fielding efforts. But, while the players are busy enthralling fans, the prominent cricket commentators and experts are also adding to fervour this season. Amongst them, Kevin Pietersen seems to be making the most of his time in India while carrying out responsibilities of commentating and match analysis in the ongoing edition. Away from cricket stadium, the former England batsman finally got to fulfil his wish of playing 'Gully Cricket' on the streets of India. The 38-year-old was recently travelling when he saw some kids playing cricket on the road. While he might have called time on his playing career, Pietersen couldn't stop himself from picking the bat and smashing the ball far and long. Just stopped on the side of the road to play gulley cricket in Bangalore. Always wanted to do it! Today I did it! â¤ï¸ðð pic.twitter.com/7HTLgIAd8Q — Kevin Pietersenð¦ (@KP24) March 28, 2019 Pietersen shared a picture and brief video of himself with the cricket fans on Twitter where he was seen playing cricket with the kids in Bengaluru. "Just stopped on the side of the road to play gully cricket in Bangalore. Always wanted to do it! Today I did it!" he tweeted with a picture alongside the kids. I wasn't very good...! ð #GullyCricket pic.twitter.com/IrYY63PonJ — Kevin Pietersenð¦ (@KP24) March 28, 2019 Before taking up the commentary role, Pietersen had enthralled cricket fans with his batting while playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Delhi Daredevils (now, Delhi Capitals) and the now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiant. He was involved in the IPL as a player for eight years (from 2009 to 2016) before pulling out of the 2017 edition due to a packed schedule.
  13. Galaxy Unpacked and MWC were the choice of venue for Huawei and Samsung to unveil their iterations of a foldable smartphone. Both phones have managed to capture the imagination of smartphone users, however, there's an unlikely company using the same marketing style to promote their own product. It's even called the “LEGO Fold”. © Samsung Behold, we give you LEGO's own foldable toy that's actually a pop-up book set, that is being promoted in the same style as Samsung's Galaxy Fold. The device in question has a 5-inch cover display and an 11-inch pop 'screen'. The Samsung Galaxy Fold, on the other hand, is 4.6-inches when folded and 7.3-inched when unfolded. Of course, the LEGO Fold is not really a smartphone however we can appreciate LEGO's level of trolling. A stunning 5-inch cover display unfolds into an 11-inch pop-up story book. For endless creative play that never runs out of battery. pic.twitter.com/yodboV2aEK — LEGO (@LEGO_Group) March 4, 2019 © Lego, Samsung LEGO's trolling efforts go further as the company released the artwork with the caption “creative play that never runs out of battery” comparing the storybook with a smartphone. LEGO has been a leading toy maker and it is quite refreshing to see the company take a dig on smartphones. We live in an age where smartphones/tablets are rapidly replacing toys as a source of entertainment for kids. What's great about the LEGO Fold is that it doesn't cost as much as Samsung or Huawei's offering. It will sell for $69.99 which is nothing when compared to Galaxy Fold's price tag of $2000.
  14. In a bizarre incident in Mumbai, a bus driver did something no one would have ever imagined doing. The driver of a school bus allegedly hit a BMW car while driving but that's not all. When the BMW driver got out of his car to reprimand the driver for the accident, he found out the driver was using a piece of bamboo as a gear stick, instead of having a normal gear stick in place. While on his way to school, the bus was probably doing a decent speed, a little more than he should have perhaps and he rammed in to the BMW. During the confrontation, the driver revealed that the steering wheel was giving him some problems for him to manoeuvre the bus with ease. Turns out, it wasn't the steering wheel but the bamboo stick he was using as the gear. We don't even know how that is possible, to begin with! © Twitter While confronting the driver, the BMW owner called the police to have the matter checked. When the police got to where the incident took place, they asked the driver about his callous bamboo make-shift gear, to which the driver replied he was using it as the gear knob had broken a few days ago and he found the piece of bamboo to replace it. Watch the video here: The reason why the driver, Raj Kumar, was using the bamboo stick was because he couldn't find time to repair the damaged gear and replace it with a real one. He's been booked under Indian penal code, section 279 for rash driving and 336 for the act of endangering a person's life. We're just wondering if there are any acts on using wooden or bamboo make-shift, fake gear sticks at all! The school is obviously shocked to hear about the incident and they will take whatever action needs to be taken for the callous bus driver. © Twitter Road safety is a big concern in most cities, especially with buses who drive rash and pay no heed to pedestrians. The upkeep of public transport is a matter of concern and it should definitely not be neglected at any given cost as it plays havoc with people's lives. I hope this is a lesson enough to understand the severity of using vehicles which are poorly managed. We really hope we don't read about a bus driver using an accordion as a brake, next!
  15. The world seems to be moving ahead on a ridiculously fast pace. Just last month, the world was going crazy over the 10 Year Challenge in which people used to compare their present self to what they used to be or how they used to look ten years ago. Eventually, the trend took over the Indian cricket team and made for an extremely loveable throwback comparing some of the greatest players like Virat Kohli, Prithvi Shaw, MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma to what they used to be 10 years ago. It was simple, interesting and brought a smile to your face, but sadly the internet has forgotten all about it and moved on as if it never existed. However, there is a new sheriff in town that has taken over the social media. The all-new '90s Kid Rumor' challenge expects the people on Twitter to write about all the rumours they heard and used to believe in when they were little kids. While some of the tweets are extremely nostalgic and bring back fond memories of the golden years, others are straight out random, weird and at times even unsettling speculations we had towards literally everything, which now make us realise what idiots we used to be back in the day! From the myths about collecting metal caps of the coke bottles in hopes of winning a reward to the risk of a watermelon plant growing in one tummy after swallowing watermelon seeds, the internet is bringing back the paranoia back. Nothing, not even the sporting world is being spared with the raging trend making its way to the top. Here are some of the most creative (or disturbing ones): Australian cricketers used to drink Kangaroo Blood before every match ð#90sKidsRumors — பதà¯à®®à®¸à¯à®°à¯ à®à®¾à®³à¯à®¯à®©à¯ (@Ramanimsd1) February 5, 2019 Undertakers has 9 life, he was killed by his Brother and comes back for Revenge. #90sKidsRumors — Sai Duck (@duck_sai) February 5, 2019 Ricky ponting had a spring in his bat #90sKidsRumors — Jai Kishan Sharma (@23jaikishan) February 5, 2019 Biggest rumor I was believing in my Childhood.....ð Ms Dhoni drinks 5 litres of milkð¥ daily ð#90sKidsRumors pic.twitter.com/jxrsh2TJiT — Naveen (@Naveen_0898) February 5, 2019 .@KaneWWE 's family died in a fire and his face is scarred beyond belief. #90sKidsRumors — Sean Hyams (@seanhyams) February 5, 2019 Dawood visited the Indian dressing room and Kapil Dev asked him to leave. #90sKidsRumors — Abhay (@AbhaySharma_1) February 5, 2019 .@KaneWWE face was burnt by @undertaker when they were growing up and that's why they kept on fighting each other. #90sKidsRumors — Rohan Raj (@ro4an_raj) February 5, 2019 This man is Undertaker's father & Wrestlers life is caged in this Cup #90sKidsRumors pic.twitter.com/P2NKtrzNes — Harshad Sharma (@SherESharma) February 5, 2019
  16. Social media is a bizarre place. Here anything and anyone under the sun is just a click away from going viral. From dancing uncle, chai peelo aunty, dhinchak Pooja, wink queen Priya to an egg (yes even an egg) can break the internet and get the world to talk about them. Recently, a picture of a bunch of kids went viral that has left people emotional and teary-eyed. © Twitter "You're only as happy as you choose to be," said Boman Irani about this picture, which is now being termed as the 'Selfie of the Year'. Honestly, we couldn't agree any more. While most of us crib about things we don't have, these kids with their innocent smiles teach us how one can be truly happy and content with whatever they have. “You're only as happy as you choose to be”. A saying that holds true for one and all!! And I'm sure this selfie deserves more likes than most. pic.twitter.com/KafEzq3mg8 — Boman Irani (@bomanirani) February 3, 2019 This heartwarming picture has since then touched a million hearts as both commoners and Bollywood celebrities continue to share it on social media. I'm sharing this image that came in on text cause d unbridled innocence n joy of these lovely kids moved me n made me smile in equal measure Super image that asks questions If anyone can reliably locate these munchkins n d photog I'd love to personally send them something each pic.twitter.com/5JWBmixzSH — atul kasbekar (@atulkasbekar) February 3, 2019 From Boman Irani, Anupam Kher to Suniel Shetty, everyone posted about it. So did Bollywood's Shehenshah Amitabh Bachchan, but to point out something that most of us failed to notice. According to Big B, the picture is apparently photoshopped and he has his own reasons to think so. He wrote, ".. with due respect and apology .. i feel this is photoshopped .. notice that the hand that holds the chappal is different than the rest of his body in size .. to his other hand by his side !!" .. with due respect and apology .. i feel this is photoshopped .. notice that the hand that holds the chappal is different than the rest of his body in size .. to his other hand by his side !! — Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) February 3, 2019 His post has left the internet divided. While some agree with him, there were some who corrected him and trolled him for calling it Photoshop. @ SrBachchan sir.. I think the slipper belongs to that another small boy.. See his one foot is on the ground with similar slipper and another one (since he has removed slipper) is hanging with the support.. I think this is genuine image with genuine innocence.. — Kinnari Bhatt (@KinnariBhatt) February 4, 2019 Is that all you noticed? Did you notice the abject poverty?

  17. Amitabh Bachchan is more than the superstar that he is on-screen. Fans have milling outside his Juhu mansion for years now, and the Sunday ritual holds a special place in the hearts of those hundreds of people and the veteran actor alike. The reason why this admiration never ceases but only continues to grow, is simply because the actor is involved in a lot more than just movies and ad campaigns. Sr. Bachchan is constantly involved in a number of social projects that don't stem from personal or commercial gains, and it is these actions that don't skip people's attention, urging them to fall deeper in love with the person that Amitabh Bachchan is. Sr. Bachchan again stepped up his game with his recent appearance in a video with differently abled children, wherein all of them performed the National Anthem in sign language. The actor took to Twitter to retweet the video which was originally posted by a fan of AB. The National Anthem .. our pride, our identity, our liberation, our belief, our self esteem .. BUT MUCH much MORE IN THE EYES OF THOSE, THAT CANNOT HEAR OR SPEAK !! .. my privilege, my honour .. my INDIAð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ https://t.co/i9RTUS5PaT — Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) January 30, 2019 The video shows AB and the other kids in white, against the backdrop of the Red Fort, as the endearing rendition plays along with some of them joining him in the act, while others sang the national anthem in the background. The peace and pride that the performance fills our hearts with, is simply touching, and other Twitter users haven't shied away from expressing their appreciation towards AB's association with this video which the actor said he was “honoured” to be a part of.

  18. When Odisha based tea-seller Devarapalli Prakash Rao took it upon himself to change the lives of young kids by providing for the education of children of daily wage workers and rickshaw pullers besides many other slum children, by setting aside half of his monthly earnings for the purpose, never once did he imagine to find himself in the company of our Prime Minister, who would be all praise for the man, owing to his distinguished efforts in the field of affordable education in the country. So, when the Ministry of Home Affairs announced the list of Padma Awards for 2019, Devarapalli was in for a sweet surprise, since his name was listed amongst the 94 names that had been shortlisted for the Padma Shri award this year. © Twitter 59-year-old Devarapalli Prakash Rao has been spending a substantial part of his life and earnings for the betterment of a section of our society, which is unfortunately ignored otherwise. For the last 18 years, Rao has been educating slum children by paying for their education from his own pockets. But before setting this aside as “nothing too special”, we would like you to recall that Cuttack-based Rao, is a roadside tea-seller, who survives on a humble, daily earning. So, on Sunday when Prime Minister Narendra Modi couldn't stop gushing about all the wonderful things Rao has done, in his 44th edition of 'Mann Ki Baat', Devarapalli's life kind of came a full circle. Hailing Rao as the “guardian angel” of underprivileged kids, PM Modi shared how delighted he had been to meet Rao, who has been donating half of his daily earnings for the education and food for over 70 kids, over a span of 18 years, and changing the lives of innumerable children. © Twitter However, Rao's journey hasn't been an easy one. A school drop out himself, he set up 'Asha O Ashwasana' school in 2000. His motivation came from the discord he felt when he saw young kids in his neighbourhood giving in to the temptations of petty crimes and intoxication that alcohol promised. So, while Rao's father never bothered to take care of his education, Rao decided to do the needful for these young kids. After a lot of struggle, he managed to convince parents to send their children to his school, since most of these families couldn't afford to part with a working member, thereby giving up on a pair of hands that could earn. Today, with classes up to 3rd standard, Rao takes care of these kids' uniforms and books, besides a small midday meal that comprises of milk and biscuits. © Twitter Rao's story is one that tugs at our dormant conscience, reminding us that every small act of thoughtfulness counts, that every little effort could touch hundreds of lives and make them better if only we can spare the thought, time and resources to look beyond our personal challenges. Why? Because like D. Prakash Rao, happiness and contentment can be found in furthering and building others dreams and lives when our own becomes too much of a work to carry on with. Because didn't Albert Einstein once say that, “a life lived for others, is a life worthwhile” and Rao seems to have proved it true, through and through. Kudos to the man! © Twitter
  19. India is a country that loves "bans". We'll ban anything and everything simply because a few people are offended or actually don't even understand the issue. The latest ban trend has been about the infamous battle royale game PUBG. The game has been a raging success in the country and everyone is hooked onto it. Users are spending hours every day playing the game and thanks to its well built in-app communication, playing with friends is even more fun. Owing to the craze, children and teenagers are glued to the game and often tend to ignore studies. © PUBG Corporation Gujarat is now officially the first state in India where the popular mobile game PUBG has been banned from primary schools. The state's primary education department has issued a circular that directs primary schools to ensure that a ban has been implemented on PUBG. The circular directed District Primary Education Officers to take the necessary steps to enforce a ban on the game in primary schools. It said the ban was necessary as children were getting addicted to the game and it was “adversely affecting their studies”. © PUBG Corporation Jagruti Pandya, who is the chairperson of the Gujarat child rights body, has also said that the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has also issued a recommendation to ban PUBG in the entire state. This comes after a recent report by Quartz and Jana which states that a PUBG fan spends 8 or more hours in a week on an average in India. One reason why many Indians are playing the game is that “everyone's talking about it.” © iMore Gujarat Government isn't the first one to ban PUBG though, institutes like Vellore Institute of Technology have also banned the game in their campus. A few days ago, a fitness trainer had to be admitted to a hospital because he was addicted to PUBG. The fitness trainer got addicted to the game and played it for nearly 10 days in a row. He had to be hospitalized after he started hitting himself with blows and caused significant injury. Virtual games are supposed to give a temporary escape from the mundane routine and are a source of entertainment. They in no way should be taken seriously, and are definitely not worth investing in by ignoring other important aspects like studies and work. (With inputs from PTI)
  20. Everyone knows that fashion holds an extremely important position in Karan Johar's life. Be it planning his airport looks meticulously to wearing super statement pieces strategically for all his public appearances (every appearance is a 'photo opportunity' when you're KJo), he sure knows how to play the game of styles like no one else can. Kirron Kher might frown at his choice of clothes, but that never comes in his way of being fashion forward. He just proved it once again, all guns blazing, by creating a fashion ABC for his kids Yash and Roohi. © Instagram/Karanjohar © Viral Bhayani A doting father, it's only understandable that Karan wants the best for his kids, and knowing all the high-end fashion brands clearly is a pre-requisite for their education. Kids start with A for Apple, B for Ball - but that's not fashion forward enough when you have KJo as your father. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Karan just appeared on Neha Dhupia's show 'No Filter Neha' and created a full-on A-Z fashion brand terminology for his kids. The proud father quoted: "A – Armani, B – Balenciaga, C – Christian Dior, D – Dolce and Gabbana, E – Escada, F – Fendi, G – Gucci, H – Hermes, I – Issey Miyake, J – Jaguar, K – Kenzo, L -Lavin, M – Moschino, N – Nautica, 0 – Oscar De Le Renta, P – (Emilio) Pucci, Q – There is no Q, because we shouldn't ask questions about fashion, R – Ralph Lauren, Ralph and Russo, S – Stella Mc Cartney, T - Timberland, U – Ungaro, V – Vivienne Westwood, W –, let's go Indian, Wendell Rodricks, X –Because we have many , Y – Yohji Yamamoto, Z – Zegna. That's what I'm going to teach my kids, that's the ABC they are going to know." © Instagram/Karanjohar Are you listening, Kirron ji?
  21. Maniesh Paul has proven time and again with his insane airport looks that he's not only the king of anchoring, but does an equally good job at being fashionable as well. From his statement bags to pairs of super edgy shoes, he has been grabbing the limelights of the fashion police for quite some time now, and we just found out that his kids are following his footsteps now. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Remember all the ugly shoes we wore during our childhood, just because we were made to? Now compare that to the hypebeast pairs these kids are wearing. A wave of sadness just took over, right? We felt that too. © Viral Bhayani But we're jealous only because we are in love with the shoes. To begin with, Maniesh Paul's neon blue Nike high tops are definitely a pair that qualifies as collectibles. The best thing about the pair is that it can be paired with anything that qualifies as Athleisure. © Viral Bhayani When it comes to his kids' shoes, we like the both the white striped ones and the ones with the ocean palette. Such fun pairs! © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Don't you love their outfits as well? Everyone is wearing colourful athleisure, that is fashionable, as well as extremely comfortable. Add to that those shoes, and a new hashtag called #FamilyOutfitGoals can start trending. © Viral Bhayani Well done, little Pauls!
  22. In the present day, if you are a regular gym rat you must have heard about Anabolic Androgenic Steroids (AAS) and maybe considered using them as well. It is worth mentioning that steroids were never developed for athletic or aesthetic purposes. They were made to treat the ill with muscle wasting conditions in cases of burns, cancer, AIDS or old age. Despite significant side effects, people consistently use AAS in supra-physiological doses, until 2000 the primary users were men involved in bodybuilding (amateur or pro), powerlifting and other athletic endeavours. But there is an alarming increase in young generation using steroids, as a study published by Public Health Wales reports 1 million active male steroid users in U.K i.e. 3% of its population. What is even more surprising, that lads as young as 13-21 are taking steroids. If we extrapolate that 3% to India's Urban male population that will be equal to a whacking 5.4 Million steroid users. © Unsplash Are More Men Interested In Bodybuilding & Powerlifting? With this drastic increase in steroid use, you might think that more of today's generation is interested in competitive Bodybuilding and Powerlifting. But stats reveal something unpredictable: only 27% men were involved in strength and athletic events, merely 22% were involved in competitive bodybuilding, and 56% were using because of body image issues or cosmetic purposes. Having A Greek God Physique Is A Necessity In This Generation! Rick Collins, an American lawyer who specializes in steroid use cases, quotes: “We live in a culture that is absolutely obsessed with appearance. We are judged by our looks every day. So when we look our best, we feel more self-confident. Are steroid users trying to impress themselves or trying to impress others? Both, of course.” © YouTube We dwell in a time where a great physique is a necessity to get roles in movies, be a cover model or run a fitness YouTube channel. In fact, if you do not have 16-inch arms & washboard abs, people won't believe you are serious about fitness. The whole purpose of lifting weights and eating healthy has become: aesthetics. There is a growing pressure on men to look more manly, more muscular, this is probably forcing them to take anabolics. But put aside the physiological side effects, I believe this young steroid using generation is also missing out something vital: The Process. You Are Missing Out On The Process! © Medium Apart from building muscles and strength, you build a character in the gym. The countless number of reps over the years transforms your body from a fragile person who was unable to do bodyweight squats to someone who can now lift more than two times his body weight. These things do not just develop physical but also mental strengths. This reaps perseverance inside you, you develop confidence that with commitment and consistency, you get stronger at things you were once weak. Arnold Schwarzenegger profoundly applied these lessons he learned in the gym to his business, Hollywood and political career. Building a good body with steroids without putting in the necessary hard work and consistency is perhaps developing a loser mentality in this generation. P.S: We know that Arnold used steroids, but he won multiple shows naturally during his teenage and probably exploited his natural potential. Have you even scratched the surface of your natural potential? Yash Sharma is a former national level Football player, now a Strength Coach, Nutritionist and Natural Bodybuilder.

  23. One of mankind's biggest concern at this point of civilisation is perhaps the all-pervasive nature of adulteration that can be found in our daily food items, such as fruits, veggies, grains and pulses, spices, cooking oil and much, much more. A recent study by Public Health Foundation in India showed that almost 80 percent of premature deaths result from the intake of contaminated food and water. This simply goes on to show that food adulteration in our country is rampant. © MensXP While most of us are aware of this reality, very few of us are trying to actively change our food habits, for a better chance at life. Now, while this attitude is considered “acceptable” when we are dealing with our own self, the same cannot be said for stance on the issue when young kids are involved. During such situations, every parent wants the best and safest option for their kids, without fail. Yet, with the decay running deeper than anticipated, such safe options are pretty difficult to come by. All such parents are met with in their search for healthy food options for their children are, adulterated versions of kids food. As disappointing as that may sound, the same experience propelled first-time parents Umang Bhattacharyya and Shauravi Malik to take matters into their own hands, in order to ensure that their kids, as much as others', get the best quality, healthy food in the market. © MensXP This reason was also enough to pushed co-founders and mothers Shauravi Malik and Meghna Narayan to quit their fancy jobs at global enterprises such as J.P. Morgan and McKinsey respectively, to pursue this cause which was close to their hearts, more vigorously on a personal level. It was finally in October 2016 when 'Slurrp Farm' was born out of this need to create a healthy, food range for kids. This first step was followed by something in the likes of, “My mum used to force a Ragi drink down my throat, I wish we could come up with a yummy way to eat Ragi”. “I used to love cheese-lings – why can't we bake them in a tasty way”. © MensXP Thus began their journey, and since that initial step has today taken the shape of 12 innovative, and tasty products and four product ranges that cover snack and breakfast food for children. With 20 product innovations already in the pipeline, they have cereals, cookies, pancakes and dosas. As for the snacks range they have 3 superb flavours available - chocolate, tangy tomato and cheese & herbs. However, getting here hasn't been easy. Leaving their well paying jobs and taking a big plunge with no endgame in sight, came with its own set of struggles. Top that up with naysayers who questioned their every move, making it all the more difficult for them charge through with their plans. But, all three co-founders had their goals in sight and their hearts in the right place, and them helped them to power through all the hiccups along the way. © MensXP Cut to this day, 40 percent of their customers are repeat customers. At the very base of it all lies their company philosophy to build a honest company, and honest products that can earn them trust and credibility. Things seem to be looking up for the trio and their work-child, because major expansion plans have been laid out for the next couple of months. From being full time employees with fancy paychecks, to leaving it all behind in order to build their dream company, Umang, Shauravi and Meghna have come a long way, and the journey has been more than fulfilling for them.

  24. Ranveer Singh And Deepika Padukone's wedding has been pretty much the only topic that has been trending in Bollywood of late, till of course Nick-Yanka also joined the bandwagon. The last leg of the celebrations were held yesterday in Mumbai, where pretty much everyone was invited. While everyone looked like a million bucks, we couldn't help but notice one young lad, who fit right in, yet stood apart. We are talking about Arjun Tendulkar, the designated Prince of Indian cricket (Is Sachin the King or the God? Anyway, you get the drift). (c) Viral Bhayani Arjun looked like someone whom KJo will just swoop right in and sign a bunch of films with. His blingy yet sophisticated blue kurta, paired with the black Patiala trousers were understated, yet statement. (c) Viral Bhayani (c) Viral Bhayani What was striking about his appearance was how tall he looked. Well, he was standing next to his father, who's not so tall himself, so that helped a bit, but the outfit gave him a lot of height. The pairing of blue black in the ratio he wore them in had a lot to do in that area. (c) Viral Bhayani We also liked the fact that he chose to be basic, yet dignified. The choice of plain black Oxfords tell us that he's a no-nonsense kind of dresser who sticks to the tasteful basics. (c) Viral Bhayani All we can say is that, if he someday decides not to play cricket anymore, Bollywood will knock on his door right away. All the best, Arjun!
  25. Before we delve into this, first, I need to get something out of the way. NAAAAAAAAAAAAAINSGONYAMABAGITHIBABA. Okay. I had to do that. Anyone who has watched the nineties classic 'The Lion King' knows that this powerful opening Zulu chant, with the rising sun in the backdrop, calling out to all the animals in Pride Lands, is nothing short of perfection. I still get goosebumps. At one point, it even was my alarm back in college! I still remember the first time I saw the movie. I was 6 and I had gone to spend the holidays at my aunt's place in Bangalore. I was particularly out of control that day and my aunt, who was on the verge on losing her mind, plonked me down in front of the TV and popped a videotape into the VCR, asking me to quietly watch the 'cartoon'. The 'word' cartoon was enough for me to shut up and fix my complete attention on the giant Onida TV. I will never forget how my heart started beating faster when the Zulu chant began and I saw all the animals wake from their slumber and make their way to Pride Rock to meet their future king. I was only 6 and this was my first Disney movie, so obviously I was not ready for the avalanche of emotions that this movie engulfed me in. I still remember how Mufasa's death destroyed me and how the tears wouldn't stop, as I watched little Simba desperately try to wake his dad up by tugging his ear… okay, I need a moment…sorry…I can't…. If you are with me so far, you know how much this movie means to us nineties kids. It opened us up to the world of Disney and introduced us to the magic of animation. “When I was a child, I wouldn't eat unless my parents played Lion King. Seeing the new trailer filled me with childhood nostalgia,” said my 25-year-old junior from college, Jacinth Miriyam. Which is why it goes without saying that the people most excited for the live-action remake of the classic movies, even more so than kids, are adults, and here's why: 1. A Throwback To Our Golden Childhood So, when the trailer dropped today and I heard James Earl Jones' magnificent, sonorous Mufasa voice saying “Everything the light touches, is our kingdom”…it was like someone had pressed a button in my brain and I was 6 all over again. This movie signifies a time gone by, a time of innocence, a time when childhood meant watching animated movies with our mouths hanging open, marvelling at a whole another world. “For me, The Lion King instantly represents my childhood. It was my favourite movie ever at that time. It made me laugh, cry and feel anger at the same time. I think this movie teaches resilience in all of its purity, and that's what makes it immortal and so loved”, my friend Chiara Lana from Italy told me when I asked her what she felt about watching it again. 2. Watching It On The Big Screen After Almost 20 Years I am not among the lucky ones who got to see this movie on the big screen (my first movie in a theatre was 'Hum Aapke Hain Koun'!). So, watching it in a live-action format on a giant screen will not only make this special, but in a way, I will be able to make up to my little self who missed this marvel on a big screen. “Watching movies in halls was still a novel concept back in the day, at least for my family. So now that I get to see it again, even though in a different format, somehow I feel like I have honoured my childhood by catching up on what I missed out all those years ago.”- James Matthew, my 28-year-old buddy from school. 3. A Need To Remember All The Emotions We Felt When We Saw It The First Time I was only 6, so obviously I was not prepared for so many things. The hurt I felt at Scar's betrayal, the devastation at Mufasa's death, the joy at Simba re-uniting with Nala and his mother, the horror at watching Simba and Scar fight, and the exhilaration at Simba finally climbing up Pride Rock to take his place…it was a roller-coaster that a tiny little me did not see coming. I will never forget how I ran up to my aunt after the movie ended and demanded some serious answers from her, especially as to how could a lion kill his own brother? I will never forget her face when I asked her “Will you do this to me too, auntie?” My 29-year-old friend from college, Shruti Menon, echoed the same sentiments, “Mufasa's death was so unpredictable and heartbreaking especially when you're watching as a kid. It really shook me as a child and still does, to be honest. But when you grow older, you do realise there's so much strength and beauty to the story, to remember who you are and where you come from. After all, it's the circle of life.” 4. The Beautiful Soundtrack I am pretty sure this is going to be a sing-a-long movie, as 90 per cent of the people in the hall will be comprised of adults, who already know all the songs from the movie by-heart! I'll be lying if I tell you that I'm not going to brush up on my lyrics before I catch the movie. “Oh, I just can't wait to be kiiiiiiiiiiiiing”. 5. Timon And Pumba They were, still are, and always will be my favourite set of friends/sidekicks in a Disney movie (Mushu from 'Mulan' coming in second). I mean, come on! They are basically the life of the movie and I have never seen anything like them till date in a film. From finding a half-dead Simba as a cub, to raising him and teaching him to find the joys of life, to ultimately watching him transform from their goofy friend to the mighty King of the Jungle, Timon and Pumba are the epitome of true friendship and by God, I wanted a pet pig after watching the movie back then. The new trailer that was dropped today has left nineties kid across the planet screaming. Baby Simba looks so freaking cute! It is so satisfying in every way and each and every CGI animal looks like perfection. Honestly, even if this movie had dropped when I was like 50 or something, my excitement levels would still have been the same. This movie is a representation of my glorious childhood, which I am proud to say that kids these days will never, ever get to experience, no matter how much they try. It goes without saying that 'The Lion King' is going to be a success as there is no chance of failure anywhere. The cast itself is nothing short of iconic and has my Goddess BEYONCE in it as Nala! So, all I can do now is mentally prepare myself for next year, so that I still have my sanity intact by the end of the movie, and am not left a crying, quivering, destroyed mess of a woman!
