  1. “It ain't over until the fat lady sings,” is probably the weirdest proverb to describe the latest feat achieved by the 25-year-old Indian Wrestler, Bajrang Punia who switched gears in the last few moments of his match against Kazakhstan's Sayatbek Okassov in the finals of Asian Championships in the 65kg category in Xi'an, China. Ever since the world champion Takuto Otoguro decided not to participate for the championships, all eyes were fixed on him, with a nation backing his journey, hoping to see him return to the land with a gold. His confidence and athleticism during the championships too dictated his form and with the way he was negating his competition on his journey to the final, the gold looked to be quite within his grasp, until he went through a real battle against the Kazakh. Struggling on the mat against Okassov initially, Punia was trailing his opponent 7-2. His agility and a solid defense were proving to be overwhelming for the Indian warrior but it was also making his exhaust a lot more quickly. It was only in the final few seconds that the Haryana-fame decided to turn things around in his favour when he launched a quick attack on the Kazakh's legs followed by a three-move combo, collating a total of 10 points in the final minute, winning the gold in the process. à¤à¤ª सबà¤à¥ पà¥à¤¯à¤¾à¤° à¤à¤° à¤à¤¶à¥à¤°à¥à¤µà¤¾à¤¦ सॠà¤à¤² #AsianChampionship2019 मà¥à¤ सà¥à¤µà¤°à¥à¤£ पदठà¤à¥à¤¤ पाया... à¤à¤ª सबसॠवादा हॠà¤à¤¿ à¤à¤à¥ भॠà¤à¤ª सबà¤à¥ निराश न à¤à¤°à¥à¤à¤à¤¾ à¤à¤° "à¤à¤²à¤à¤ªà¤¿à¤" मà¥à¤ भॠ"सà¥à¤µà¤°à¥à¤£ पदà¤" लानॠà¤à¥ लिठà¤à¤¡à¤¼à¥ मà¥à¤¹à¤¨à¤¤ à¤à¤°à¥à¤à¤à¤¾à¥¤ à¤à¤ªà¤¨à¤¾ पà¥à¤¯à¤¾à¤° à¤à¤° à¤à¤¶à¥à¤°à¥à¤µà¤¾à¤¦ यà¥à¤¹à¥ बनायॠरà¤à¥à¥¤ à¤à¤¯ हिà¤à¤¦ð®ð³ pic.twitter.com/tSmoEDlQG3 — Bajrang Punia (@BajrangPunia) April 24, 2019 Bajrang's greatest assets leading to this moment were probably his endurance and strength. According to his coach, Shako Bentinidis, while other athletes get tired and become slow as a match progresses, Punia evaluates his opponents and gets better with time. “The longer a bout goes on, the better are his chances to win it,” Bentinidis has said before the team had left for the tournament. Such a heroic comeback deserved recognition and his Indian fans were more than generous with the appreciations on Twitter: WHAT AN INCREDIBLE COMEBACK.

  2. Bollywood has been churning out some quality biopics and historical drama films. Be it Vicky Kaushal's 'Uri' or more recently, Akshay Kumar's 'Kesari', these kind of films based on true events and facts are a hit amongst Indian audience for obvious reasons. © Hounourpoint Not only do such films make us more aware, but they also instill a sense of patriotism and belongingness from time-to-time. It seems like another such biopic is in the pipeline and this one shall be based on the life of a 21-year-old Indian Army daredevil who single-handedly destroyed seven Pakistani tanks during the 1971 Indo-Pak war. © Alchetron The brave martyr's name is 2nd Lieutenant Arun Khetarpal, and he is the reason why India won the war against Pakistan in 1971. However, before we tell you more about the biopic on Arun Khetarpal, let us tell you who he was and what he did for India's victory. The Crowning Glory Of Battle of Basantar Daredevil in the truest sense of the word, 2nd Lieutenant Arun Khetarpal, was part of the Poona Horse regiment, and was posthumously awarded the Param Vir Chakra for his unrivalled bravery and sacrifice for the nation in the Battle of Basantar which was during the 1971 Indo-Pak War. © Hounourpoint A courageous youngman of 21-years-old, Khetarpal had just joined the Indian Army as a 2nd Lieutenant when he was called on duty to the war front in 1971. Born in Pune on 14th October 1950, he came from an army background. His grandfather had served in the British Indian army during World War I while Arun's father, Brigadier M.L. Khetarpal, served in Indian Army's Engineering Corps until his retirement. 1971 Indo-Pak War When war was finally declared between India and Pakistan in 1971, Arun's regiment was given the task to set up a bridgehead across the Basantar river. Close to Sialkot, the territory was of strategic importance for both sides. During the course of the war Indian troops reported alarming artillery onslaught from the Pakistani side and requested for tank support. Thus on December 16th, two Poona Horse tank troops (of which, one was under the command of 2nd Lt Arun Khetarpal) were moved towards Jarpal in Pakistan. © Lazydesiauthor Enroute the Basantar river crossing, they were attacked by Pakistani tanks. The Indian side retaliated effectively. However, during the battle, the other Poona Horse tank came under attack and the commander was killed. That left Khetarpal alone to fight off the Pakistani tanks. 2nd Lt Khetarpal Changes The Course Of History Undeterred, Khetarpal led a strong counter-attack, that would eventually lead to his martyrdom and also give India the final push towards victory. Aboard a Famagusta JX 202, Khetarpal single-handedly destroyed five enemy tanks before getting hit by a shell. © Wikipedia A gravely injured Khetarpal was asked to withdraw at this point, but the 2nd Lieutenant refused to give up. He had told his commanding officer “No Sir, I will not abandon my tank. My gun is still working and I will get these bastards!” Until his dying breath, Khetarpal managed to destroy a total of seven Pakistani tanks. This gave the Indian troops a much needed upper hand that not only led to an eventual victory for the Indian side, but was also the beginning of the end of war. Biopic On Param Vir Chakra Khetarpal © India today/Wikipedia As per latest reports, it is being said that filmmaker Sriram Raghavan shall be directing the biopic on Khetarpal, which has been titled 'Ekkis'. It is also being said that the makers have approached Varun Dhawan to play the role of Khetarpal in the movie.
  3. Chris Evans is really out there playing with everyone's emotions and if he keeps it up, he'll be demoted to the second best Chris is Hollywood for me. But, for real, the biggest question and the scariest thing about 'Avengers: Endgame' is the fate of the OG Avengers especially Tony Stark and Steve Rogers. Everyone is 90% sure that this movie would be the last Marvel movie for both of them but this is still not confirmed. Everyone is already dreading and crying about Captain America's possible death in 'Endgame' and Chris himself is not making things better for the fans. First, it was his emotional tribute to Cap on the last day of filming and now he's basically joking about Cap dying in interviews. ICYMI, he opened up about a lot of different things in his interview with The Hollywood Reporter recently, talking about everything from Avengers to hating Trump to his retirement rumours. The main part any Marvel fanboy could focus on was his jokes about death, of course. When the interviewer jokingly asked him about the ending of 'Avengers: Endgame', he said, “Yeah, I wish I could. Uh, it's — I mean — it's a good one. It's a real good one. I saw, like, the first hour of it.” The joke continues and he's asked whether it was till Cap's death, and he said, “Right, exactly. After I die by Tony's hand, I just said, You know what? I can't watch this.” Chris, you're on thin fucking ice, don't even joke about it like that. But, also I guess he's the only one allowed to joke about it. Towards the end, he's back with this Cap's death bullshit, and I personally want to go fight him for playing with our emotions this much. He revealed that even he choked up three times while watching the movie because it's that good. Well, looks like we're all going to be bawling our eyes out in the theatre now. The interviewer kept up the joke and asked him if he cried because Cap dies, he said, “Right, it's hard. Seeing my own death. It's going to be a long movie, that's for sure. The first edit clocked in over three hours. My funeral's like an hour.” Chris, this is for you- Well, at least he can't get fired now.
  4. What's up everyone? It's our girl Superwoman out there making India proud! Lilly Singh aka Superwoman has just become the first Indian-origin woman to host a Late Night talk show and basically the entire world is showing nothing but support for her. It's official. Ya girl is getting her own @nbc late night show... A Little Late with Lilly Singh. Thank you so much for being here. I am truly so grateful. â¤ï¸ Thank you @jimmyfallon @sethmeyers pic.twitter.com/h44HoPRtel — Lilly Singh (@IISuperwomanII) March 15, 2019 She started off her career online by posting YouTube videos on her channel ||Superwoman|| and quickly became a fan favourite on the website because of her hilarious and relatable content. Imagine going from making YouTube videos in your room to getting your own talk show down the line. Sounds like a dream, right? Does it make you want to go back in time and start a YouTube channel doing stupid things and posting it online? Coming back to her show 'A Little Late with Lilly Singh', she's taking over Carson Daly's 1:30 am slot on NBC and the show is expected to debut this year in December. This is not just important because she's Indian-Canadian, but also because she would be joining the few women hosts in a majorly male-dominated area. Moreover, she's also an openly bisexual woman, so it's like a trifecta of representation. Ever since the news broke online, all her fans and even celebrities have been showing excitement over this and are tweeting showing support. National jiju has spoken. YES!

  5. It was back in 2008 when India first discovered a whole new side of director and screenwriter Farhan Akhtar. We witnessed the man charm his way to the silver screen so effortlessly, in the musical drama 'Rock On!!', which became a stellar hit at the box office! The movie went on to become Farhan's first official stint in front of the camera, after having spent close to two decades behind it, first as an assistant director and then with his directorial debut in 2001 with 'Dil Chahta Hai'. View this post on Instagram #thefakirofvenice Coming Soon ð #FarhanAkhtar ð A post shared by Bollyworld (@bolllywood_lovers) on Mar 21, 2017 at 8:15am PDT But did you know that 'Rock On!!' wasn't even supposed to be Farhan's debut movie? Yes, you read that right. Even before 'Rock On!!' hit the screens, Farhan had already made his acting debut with 'The Fakir of Venice', but unfortunately the movie never saw the light of the day. But worry not, no missed trains here! If you love the dude and his fresh and relatable acting skills, you would be delighted to know that the movie is finally set to release this year! After all the great movies he sent our way, be it 'Rock On', 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara', 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', 'Dil Dhadakne Do, 'Rock On 2' or 'Lucknow Central' besides many others, we can't wait to see how it all started. © October films Now, with the movie's release, Farhan's fans might finally get their chance. But that's not all, we bring you 5 things that you need to know about the movie, so you can prepare yourself for what's coming your way. 1. The movie stars Farhan Akhtar and Annu Kapoor in lead roles. While the music has been given by none other than A. R. Rahman, it is slated to release on 18th January. 2. In an interview with IANS, director Anand Surapur said that the initial release was delayed because of production issues. © October Films 3. The movie is based on human behaviour, and traces how humans behave and react to various situations in life, based on their needs and goals. 4. The plot of the film revolves around a con act involving two Indian men, who wish to make some quick bucks, and travel to Venice for the purpose. Farhan's character is that of a man who has been hired to find a Fakir, who will bury himself in sand for an installation project. On the other hand, Annu Kapoor plays the role of fascinating slum dweller-turned-Fakir. View this post on Instagram #FirstLook do filme indiano #TheFakirOfVenice, comédia de humor negro mistura com drama, realizado em Inglês e Hindi, inspirada na vida do filmmaker Homi Adajania. Direção de #AnandSurapur. No elenco #FarhanAkhtar, #AnnuKapoor e #KamalSidhu. Produção de #PunitDesai. #CinemaIndiano #BollyeCia #TheFakirOfVeniceBollyeCia A post shared by Bolly e Cia. (@bollyecia) on Feb 6, 2017 at 9:30am PST 5. The trailer of the movie has just hit the floor, and going by it, we can easily claim that the theme of the movie remains topical even today, though it was made almost a decade ago. The trailer holds a lot of promise, and suggests that we are in for yet another entertaining ride with Farhan. Check out the trailer here:
  6. Biebs, who hurt you? Yes, we know it was Selena, but we also thought you were really happy with Hailey. But, seriously what life crisis are you going through, Justin? Because nothing, and I mean nothing will ever justify eating a freaking burrito like this- Twitter Why, Justin, why? We need answers! Are you following Amy's mom's advice? Are you trying to be a good girl? So, basically Justin was photographed eating a burrito sideways and the entire Twitter exploded with people sharing their confusion and just not being able to believe that Justin Bieber actually doesn't know how to eat a damn burrito. does....justin bieber not know how... burritos work ? pic.twitter.com/WWKP2ttARe — Ryan Bassil (@ryanbassil) October 25, 2018 It will haunt us all.

  7. We've all heard this statement- 'Don't eat near bed time or you will gain weight'. Another common advice is,' if you want to lose weight or maintain a lean weight, don't consume carbohydrates after 6:00p.m. The world wants you to believe that eating at night is actually bad for you and you should avoid eating anything past sunset. But what if I told you that it is perfectly okay to consume food during the night or any other time of the day without worrying about weight gain? Yes, that's absolutely true. Let me prove this to you with logic and science. Where Did This Myth Come From? © Pixabay The proponents of this belief believe that when you go against the circadian rhythm of your body, you tend to gain weight. According to them, normal circadian rhythm of human body tells you to eat during the day and rest during the night. Several animal studies have indeed established the fact that when subjects in studies eat opposite to their circadian rhythms, they gain significantly more weight than subjects who eat as per the circadian rhythms. However, it is important to note that these studies were conducted on mice and not humans. Human Researches Are Mixed A few human studies that were conducted to find out the result of eating at night showed no difference in weight. These studies indicated that it is not actually the time that's important but its how much and what you eat that matters. However, a few studies did establish that people who eat late at night tend to consume more calories than people who do not eat late at night. This may lead to weight gain with people who end up consuming more overall calories. Thus, it is not the timing that is responsible for weight gain, but it is the total number of calories that people end up consuming when they eat at night. Food Choices At Night Are Generally Not Healthier The only problem with eating late at night is that food choices at that time aren't really healthy. Late night eating generally comprises junk foods like chips, sugar coated biscuits, colas, pizza, etc, which are loaded with extra calories. This is the reason why people who eat late end up consuming more total number of calories. Weight gain happens only when your total calorie intake exceeds your body's calorie requirements for a certain period of time. Now this habit of eating junk food at night which is calorie dense and makes you consume more number of total calories is what is responsible for people to gain weight. © Pixabay The Solution The Solution to eating at night and avoiding the unnecessary weight gain is actually to monitor what you eat and how much you eat. If you can control the type of food choice and its portion size, there is absolutely no problem in eating late at night. For this, fill in your kitchen and fridge with healthy and low calorie foods so that when you crave for food at night, you do not have a handy choice for binge-eating junk.

  8. Just last year, the #metoo movement hushed the world with its great attempt to highlight closeted abuse prevalent in Hollywood. The movement trickled down halfway across the world and a lot of women came forward and spoke about their #metoo stories and brought them out in the open. It's beautiful to imagine that a movement, which started off in such a fragile environment, became larger than life and acted like a ripple effect. Every woman had a story to share and while I deliberate on the term 'woman', I am not forgetting the men who've come out with their stories under the hashtag #mentoo, giving other men the strength to talk about the abuse they've gone through. © Pexels It took a year, but the movement reached Bollywood this year when Tanushree Datta, an actress popular in the late 2000's came out with her story about the prevalence of sexual harassment in the industry. We all know it's there and it happens but the incidents are usually hushed up in more ways than one and they get swept under the rug, time and again. When Tanushree came forward and spoke about being harassed by her then co-star and veteran actor Nana Patekar, the entire industry was taken aback and decided to sit on the fence, while she talked about what happened with her, ten years ago on the sets of the movie 'Horn Ok, Please'. More than debating about the fact that a reasonably successful man misbehaved with a significantly new actress on the sets of the movie, people started questioning her motive and the 'timeline' of abuse. © Thinkstock Images Yes, the timeline. This is what this article is predominantly about. By timeline, I mean the time it took for her to come out in the open and talk about what the 'perpetrator' had done. Many people contested the fact that she talked about the incident years after it had passed, so it held no relevance now. But let me tell you a not-so-hidden fact. Abuse has no timeline. There is no way to reason out logically what your body and mind go through and when is the right time to talk about it. When you go through 'abuse' of any sort, be it mental, sexual, emotional or physical, your body takes time to process it, simply because you 'freeze' at the time it's happening and your first instinct is self-preservation by processing the incident. That is why abuse and harassment survivors come out after years of the occurrence and finally talk about it. It also takes a lot of courage and strength to mentally gratify your mind to finally be verbal about the incident and it's certainly not easy to do so. So, when Tanushree Datta talks about it ten years later, it's really not to berate the man in question but to open a fresh new chapter in Bollywood or anywhere else for that matter, and talk about it openly, regardless of the time gone by. © Twitter To make things more clear about how the timeline is not a question of importance for an abuse survivor, I rounded up 5 brave men, who openly talk about abuse and harassment they went through and how long it took for them to come out in the open with it. Because, #mentoo. (1) "It Took Me 5 Years To Process It" "I was in the local in Mumbai from Dadar to Andheri and it was crowded like it usually is. It was a normal day and I was heading to work and I was lost in thought. Suddenly I felt a hand all over my back and going down to my pants. Since the train was too crowded, I tried to move forward an inch. The hand went away but it came back again and this time, it grabbed my behind (butt) and started stroking it. I was feeling embarrassed and humiliated but it wouldn't let go. I finally turned around to see who it was but I couldn't find the man. I felt really disgusted and humiliated and decided to skip work. I also kept thinking about my sister and my women friends who travel every other day and what they go through. At least this incident made me think about that. But I couldn't talk about it to anyone. I was embarrassed and scared that people would make fun of it. Last year, when men started putting up FB posts about #mentoo, I gathered the courage to put a post as well and I was shocked at how well responsive and helpful the audience was. It's been 6 years since that incident. It Took Me 5 Years To Process It" - Gaurav, 28 © Pexels (2) "I Didn't Tell Anyone For Over Ten Years" "I don't want to go into the details because I've gone over the details of the incident too many times in my head, but I was molested by a close family member as a child, a bunch of times when I was 12. It was just easy for 'her' to come into my room and touch me inappropriately and I knew it was wrong. Of course, she asked me to keep quiet about it but even after I was a grown man, I couldn't even think of talking about it. I would shy away from 'touch' and wasn't too sexually active. I didn't tell anyone over ten years. A few years ago when I was facing difficulty forgetting the incident, I started seeking professional help and spoke to a therapist about it and finally opened up. Now I am glad a lot of people are doing the same. I don't feel left out. Honestly, it's okay to talk about it. Just need to be ready, that's all"! - Anonymous, 24 © Thinkstock Images (3) "Time Has Nothing To Do With It" "Time has nothing to do with it. I took a long time to come out and talk about the abuse and assault I went through in my boarding school as a child. It took me years and years to gather courage, confidence and strength to talk about what I had been put through by my seniors in school. I was scarred for life and scared of everything. Now that I have faced my demons, I can stand up to anything. I even looked into the eyes of my abuser when I saw one of them recently and told him off. It's only when you process it and accept it consciously, you let go of it slowly and gain yourself back". - Amit, 27 © Pexels (4) "I Didn't Tell Anyone For Two Years" "I am gay and I was 'date raped' two years ago. Recently I talked about the incident vocally for other gay men to come out and talk about similar instances. I feel it's not about the gender but about what you go through as a human being. I didn't tell anyone for two years because I was humiliated and raped without even my knowledge. But today when I recall the incident, I know I am safe talking about it, even though it happened two years ago. It took me that long to come to terms with it, and what I want to say is that it doesn't matter how long it takes for you to talk about abuse, as long as you bring it out in the open and face it, you're good and you're strong". - Rajat, 30 (name changed) © Pexels (5) "I Was Abused At 5 And I Am 50 Now" I went through sexual abuse at 5 and I am 50 now. This is the first time I am talking about it apart from talking to my therapist. I feel confident enough to talk about it now. I was abused by a man, while I was travelling with my mother on a train. I kept quiet for 45 years because I thought no one could understand what I went through. But when I met my wife, I told her about the small fears I had and she helped me a lot in opening up about it. Abuse has no age and when you want to speak about it has no timeline. You can come out whenever you want with it and you'll still hold your dignity intact. You will gain strength and courage to talk about it." - Praveen, 50 © Pexels Really, abuse and harassment, sexual or otherwise have no timeline. Recently I read a 90-year-old woman spoke about the abuse she went through when she was 10! Give yourself time and patience to deal with it accurately to process it properly and talk about it courageously, whenever you are ready.
  9. Myths and misconceptions have been a part and parcel of the fitness industry since seemingly forever. A lot of baseless and non-proven pieces of advice being thrown around by trainers and coaches like those set of dumbbells that were heavy in the first place for them to be lifting. One such golden piece of advice that everyone would be familiar with is that 'eating late at night makes you fat'. Where did this thought originate from? © Pixabay It started when research found a correlation between people indulging in late night snacking having a high BMI categorized as overweight or obese. As soon as this study results were published, gym bros started skipping their evening meals just like Instagram models skip leg days. And better yet, they had a few theories for the same. Let's break all of them down. Theory 1 - Your metabolism slows down at night Claim - When you sleep, you will burn very little calories vs. when you are awake and thus store all the calories as fat. Reality - Recent studies have shown that your metabolism or more importantly Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) changes very little when you are asleep compared to being awake. Your heart is still pumping blood, you are still breathing, your brain is still active, etc. So this claim has no real data backing it. Theory 2 - Your insulin levels are higher at night Claim - As your insulin levels are higher, you store more fat. Reality - Though your insulin levels are comparatively higher at night as to very early in the morning, they do not really change much vs. during mid-day or say afternoon. If high insulin levels really caused fat gain (which they do not, at least not directly), eating meals during the mid-day would also make you fat with the same logic that higher insulin levels are actually the reason that you become fat. © YouTube Theory 3 - Carbs after 8 pm make you fat Claim - If you eat carbohydrates in the evening and specifically after 8 pm, it will make you fat. Reality - Carbohydrates are the main source of energy or fuel for our bodies. The carbohydrates you consume either get burned off or get stored as glycogen. Almost never do they directly get stored as fat. They inversely affect fat oxidation in your body. It goes like: A. Eat more carbs, burn more carbs for energy, burn less fat for energy, store more fat. B. Eat fewer carbs, burn fewer carbs for energy, burn more fat for energy, store less fat. So technically, the 8 pm deadline does not really matter that much. It is your overall dietary energy intake for the day that makes a difference and not the number of carbohydrates per se. And if you look at it, a majority of the late night snacking options are calorie-dense low-volume junk items like chips, chocolate, cakes, ice-cream, etc. Basically, it is easier to consume a lot of calories with these food choices and in turn, eat more calories than needed by your body, thus making you fat. So does eating late at night make you fat? Not really. Author bio: Pratik Thakkar is the co-founder and director of GetSetGo Fitness, an online fitness company.
