  1. The more I watch the ending of the last episode of 'Game of Thrones', the more convinced I am about a few revelations that will make a breakthrough in the next episode. Well, they can't leave us with unanswered questions on how Arya flew all the way, in the sneakiest way possible to kill the Night King, or how the Dothraki just disappeared in approximately 10 seconds. Everything from the 'darkest' episode in the history of TV series was a blur and we're really looking forward to some closure. © HBO A lot of fan theories are going about on the internet and we caught hold of one which made a lot of sense. Because we do need a close ended scenario here! So, do you remember the scene when Jon is trying to fight the zombie dragon, towards the end? Well, to be honest Jon didn't do much throughout the episode. He was either flying his dragon with his lover or fighting a dead dragon. But now it seems like he was helping Arya out in the end. How you ask? Well, according to a fan, while Jon was fighting and screaming at the dead dragon, he wasn't just randomly screaming at the dragon. Then what was he screaming at? © HBO Here's what the fan posted on Reddit about this theory: "Jon screamed at the undead dragon to distract it so Arya can run past and kill the Night King. The undead dragon was protecting the entrance to the Godswood. Watch it again, you can actually hear him scream 'GOOOOO – GO – GO.' 10 seconds later the scene you can see the hair of a White Walker flying up when Arya sprints past the group of White Walkers. Jon once again was ready to sacrifice himself to kill the Night King." So, basically, the dragon was manning the entry to the Godswood, so to distract him Jon started fighting him and yelling 'GO' to Arya at the same time. That'll be one interesting theory if it does come true. It'll certainly give us a fair amount of closure if nothing else! Which also means, everything was plotted and planned carefully in order to kill the Night King. But how does Arya fly all the way over to him and how is it that no one hears her coming? © HBO Well, take a look at the ending anyway, just so you can get a clearer sense of it: So, let's also add the fact that Jon was probably sacrificing himself to make Arya the last hero. Is that a fact? I want to certainly believe it because let's face it, it's Jon! Since this seems quite probable, I am really hoping they break certain revelations to us in episode 4, so we can be at peace and forgive HBO for forgetting to add enough light to watch the damn episode.
  2. The Battle Of Winterfell is done and dusted with. However, do you really think that all the business with the Night King is over? I mean, sire, the battle with Cersei matters more and is probably central to 'Game Of Thrones'. But do you really think that the Night King and his Army of the Dead, which was hyped since season 1, would go down this easily? But here's the thing, the great Battle of Winterfell was not without flaws of its own. Like, what was Bran up to while Theon was fighting away the dead. Why would Bran willingly send off Theon to his death? Why are all the main characters or at least the characters whose storylines matter, dead? Wasn't 'Game Of Thrones' built on the principle of catching the audience off guard killing people off who mattered? That's the alarming part and we're not even getting any answers. However, there is a new theory that suggests the unthinkable. So, far, we've thought of Cersei, Sansa, and even the Dragon Queen Daenerys as evil and a possible threat to the Iron Throne. But, what if it's none of them but Bran? What if Bran is the villain everyone should be afraid of? In a Reddit post from user ColdBeing titled “Something just doesn't feel right,” ColdBeing expresses suspicion about the Night King's demise (something that outraged most fans after the third episode of GOT). “They hyped up The Night King for seasons upon seasons, years upon years and this is how he goes out? There's just no way,” the Redditor wrote. They also questioned why Bran warged for so long while Theon was defending him. “Could he have been making a deal with The Night King?” Then, here's a tweet that complicates everything: How did the #NightKing change Craster's babies? By touching them. How did he change Viserion? By touching it. What did Bloodraven say to #BranStark in the cave? "He touched you."#foodforthought#nightking #GameofThrones — Vladimir Furdik (@Vladimir_furdik) April 28, 2019 The theory notes how strange it is that Bran appreciated Theon Greyjoy for being a good man right before he ran to his death. Even when he knows, all the trauma has made him, well a little aloof. © HBO So, while it was great to see Arya plunge the Valyrian steel dagger in the Night King's heart, something isn't quite adding up. And the thing is, Game Of Thrones is good at this sort of a thing where they surprise the audience out of nowhere. Could this be why Bran has been straight off cold and stoic this season? Or the fact that it's just Bran's body and the three-eyed Raven's soul, but then at what point did Bran leave the body? We will only find out in the next episode, hopefully.
  3. The most anticipatory moment of the entire year is finally here and fans are going berserk witnessing a decade-worth of films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe coming to an end with 'Avengers: Endgame', in the theatres. The movie came to the halls on the 26th Of April and it's been running packed in theatres since! There are over 25 lakh tickets sold out on the online booking portal BookMyShow and with that, 'Avengers: Endgame' has become the fastest film to have surpassed the two-million advance ticket sales mark on BookMyShow! This is actually quite phenomenal. © Walt Disney Studios Motion pictures According to Forbes, the movie has performed extremely well and has raked in an opening day collection of $216.6 million (around INR 1403 crore) worldwide, with $47.6 million (around INR 334 crore) coming in from China. That's one box office record to beat, TBH! In India alone, some theatres have opened screenings 24x7 to actually meet the increasing demands of watching the show the day it's out. Which makes sense though. A true Marvel fan won't wait a week anyway to watch 'Avengers: Endgame' and there are quite a few of those in India. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture "With just a few hours left for 'Avengers: Endgame' to hit the screens, the frenzy around the film is unprecedented. The cinemas are doing everything possible to match fans' demand for the film, including round-the-clock screenings as also opening up advance bookings for the entire week ahead." Ashish Saksena, the COO for BookMyShow told a popular news agency. According to a trade analyst, 'Avengers: Endgame' is expected to earn over $260 million (a whopping INR 1823 crore), while some believe the film will definitely cross the $300 million-mark (INR 2104 crore). This is an insane record breaker in the history of cinema and if you haven't caught it yet, it's about time you do! The film has excellent reviews from every corner of the world! © Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture 'Avengers: Endgame' is the 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and stars Robert Downey Jr. Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Brie Larson, among many others.
  4. 'Mortal Kombat' is often considered to be the fighting genre game that came with a lot of controversy in its first days but also garnered a cult-like following. 'Mortal Kombat 11' redefines the genre yet again with a gripping narrative and addictive gameplay. It's got polish, loads of characters and lore that can give any single player a run for its money. Developer NetherRealm is known for making beautiful and polished fighting games which were prevalent even in the making of 'Injustice 2'. 'Mortal Kombat 11' is yet another product from the same developer but does it deliver a quality experience like 'Injustice 2'? Let's find out how the game fared during the course of our review: Simplicity Is Key A fighting game like Mortal Kombat attracts two types of players: pros and enthusiasts. In order to keep a common ground, MK11 has relatively easy controls and good mechanics that make the game enjoyable. There are four attack buttons (two for punch/kick each front/back) and is combined with some special attacks that are easy to remember if you go through the moves list. © WB Games You no longer can run during a fight which basically changes the way you now fight. You now have to time your attacks and defence with a clear basic strategy. You are better off by chaining short combos with your specials. Even the offence and defence meters have now been separated so that you concentrate on both aspects when fighting. The offence meter charges fairly quick and can be used for your specials whereas the defence meter lets you block or counter your opponent's attacks more effectively. The overall gameplay is a bit slower than previous MK games but we prefer this change. Having said that, there is a bit of complexity to the fighting technique as well if you want to pull off the more hardcore moves. You need to keep everything in mind i.e. special moves, combos, weakness and strengths in order to be the best at this game. We played the game in normal mode as we aren't the best at fighting games especially when playing higher difficulty. You can enjoy the game by just throwing kicks and special moves, but the real fun is in the challenge. Getting fatalities are probably the most exciting bit in this game as it results in some of the most gruesome gore-filled scenes we've ever seen in Mortal Kombat. The Story Mode As soon as we got done with one of the most comprehensive tutorials, we got straight into the story mode. You will embark on a journey that's filled with drama, cheesy interactions and some time travel craziness. You will meet the younger counterparts of your favourite characters along the way, as time has been manipulated by Kronika. She has decided to basically reboot time with the sole purpose of removing Raiden out of existence. © WB Games The time-travel trope is a smart way to give a tribute to Mortal Kombat's history. Liu Kang is finally an important character now and every other character gets some important moment during the course of the story. In fact, the story mode has some of the best cut-scenes we've ever seen in a game and never got bored for even a second. The game itself looks spectacular with detailed character models and some of the smoothest transitions ever. The story mode would transition into a fight without any loading screens or any sort of hiccups. The facial animations are on point and breathe life into characters. Voice acting is also on point apart from Sonya Blade who has been brought to life by Ronda Rousey. Her line deliveries and facial expressions were just weird and not at the same level as the other characters in MK11. What We Didn't Like In the “Kustomization” mode, you can gear up your character with cosmetic skins and functional gear. You cannot customise your skins according to your preference which was a bit disappointing, There are 24 characters you can customise in total and 25 if you've pre-ordered the game. You get Shao Kahn as a playable character which should have been part of the main game in the first place. You can add other things like weapons, helmets and shields but it doesn't really make a huge difference in gameplay. © WB Games Having said that, not all is peachy in this game as the grind is quite real. You will need to earn in-game stuff or currency by either beating arcade-style towers or hit up the Krypt. In the Krypt, you will have to solve a puzzle and open many “chests” by using the in-game currency. These are essentially loot boxes that will upset almost anyone who doesn't want to spend extra money. We've been playing the game for over 18 hours and still haven't managed to unlock anything meaningful. You don't have to pay any real money to open any of these chests but NetherReal is already trying to fix the long grind issue to make it faster for players to unlock items. However, it is entirely optional to go this route as you can unlock character endings from the story mode and “Klassic Towers”. The Final Say Mortal Kombat is probably the best fighting game ever made with addictive gameplay and an entertaining story mode. The mechanics in the game are crisp and easy to learn without even having played any of the previous games. The game looks absolutely beautiful and has one of the most impressive cut-scenes in a game ever. However, the microtransactions and loot box systems were a big turn off as it makes the game very grindy. To be honest, a blockbuster game like 'Mortal Kombat 11' with a massive budget needs to offset those costs somehow. It's still not the best way to go about it but I guess we will have to live with it for now.
  5. A trailer comes out, becomes a meme - everyone knows the drill. It's obviously expected when the movie has Salman Khan in the lead. People love to troll him and his movies and most of the time he makes it a little too easy. Remember 'Race 3'? But, this time when the trailer for 'Bharat' dropped, it wasn't Salman Khan that was the star of the memes, but Katrina Kaif who got that honour. She basically said only one dialogue in the entire trailer but one was more than enough. Katrina saying “Itna bhaari gyaan dene ki zarurat nahi hai” was honestly just waiting to be turned into a meme. Who knows if it was in the trailer just to get even more free publicity online? If that's the case, they've succeeded.

  6. If you have been lifting for around three months, chances are that you have some knowledge when it comes to sports performance supplements. It could be due to your own curiosity or your trainer or coach trying to sell you questionable stuff for muscle building through a discount code or a dealer they know. via GIPHY Usually, a lot of these muscle building supplements are questionable as they are either useless or over-priced. If you are aware of supplements, you would have heard of a supplement called Creatine. Luckily, it does not fall in the useless or the over-priced categories. Creatine is the most studied supplements in terms of its safety and efficiency with over 600+ studies done on humans. What Is Creatine? Creatine is a molecule that is produced by your body. It is also found in food items such as raw meat and fish. The reason supplementation is preferable is it is present in very low quantities in food and on cooking, it gets denatured. How Does Creatine Work? Your body has energy systems to produce ATP. ATP is known as the energy currency of your body. The phosphagen energy system produces ATP the quickest from creatine phosphate and produces rapid and extremely short bursts of energy. By supplementing with creatine, you can saturate your body's creatine levels and thus have more ATP produced when doing short and intense work like a heavy set of bench press, a heavy set of squat, or a sprint. How Does Creatine Help Build Muscle? via GIPHY With over 300 studies done looking at the effects of creatine on strength and performance, it has been constantly observed that supplementing with creatine increased maximal strength and power ranging from 5-15%. It has also been shown that these increases have not been just observed in beginners, it has been the same with subjects over 6 years of training. This means, when your strength and power increases, you lift more weights and more volume with time. This increases in strength and volume translate to more muscle built over time. Which Creatine To Take? The supplement industry has been trying to push Creatine HCl and Creatine Ethyl Ester as superior products, but none of the studies done so far have shown them to be superior to Creatine Monohydrate. Fun fact: Creatine Monohydrate costs less than a third of the prices of HCl and the Ethyl Ester variants. How Much Creatine To Take? via GIPHY You could either just start with a standard dose of 5 grams per day or do a loading phase of 20 to 25 grams per day for a week followed by a 5 grams dosage. The loading phase leads to a quicker saturation of Creatine stores in the body and in the long term, it does not make a significant difference. Studies have also shown that athletes taking Creatine continuously for over 21 months did not face any ill health effects. These findings suggest that there is no reason to cycle creatine off. So go ahead and supplement with Creatine Monohydrate if your goal is to build more muscle and strength.

  7. The biggest movie of the year, decade, the century will obviously inspire a bunch of hilarious memes and it has all begun just a month before the movie releases. With less than a month to go for the release date - 26th April - Avengers month has begun y'all and it started off with a bang with the entire cast sharing their own superhero poster for 'Avengers: Endgame'. #AvengeTheFallen The Avengers (left) The Fallen (right)#AvengersEndgame 4.26.2019 pic.twitter.com/Oz4ec5i1Vb — Fandango (@Fandango) March 26, 2019 There were a lot of surprises, with characters who died before the 'dusting of 2018' getting their posters to learning how some characters got dusted off-screen. The posters kept on coming and coming and the Marvel fandom was literally just like - Now that everyone has calmed down just a little bit and are putting their speculations and theories on the backburner, it's time for some memes, and the tagline of the posters was perfect for that. Avenge The Fallen. Yes, this movie will do just that but it got people thinking about a lot of different pop culture characters and how they also needed to be avenged. Thus, a meme was born. People began making Avenger-type posters for different pop culture characters. It started off well with 'Harry Potter' and 'Game of Thrones', but then obviously went into the hilarious/absurd territory. #AvengeTheFallen The Avengers (left) The Fallen (right)#AvengersEndgame 4.26.2019 pic.twitter.com/Oz4ec5i1Vb — Fandango (@Fandango) March 26, 2019 That's heartbreaking. #AvengeTheFallen pic.twitter.com/DhKV6keRM8 — where's my check, Buzzfeed?

  8. Earlier this week, Facebook and Instagram were out of commission for several hours. Facebook said the outage was a result of a server configuration change, which has now been taken care of. But for those several hours, most of the internet freaked out staring at their blank screens. A lot of people, who genuinely wanted to communicate with others, switched to alternate services like Telegram. But the rest of the people, who didn't really have any alternate medium to waste their time, headed to, wait for it, Pornhub. © Pornhub Yes, that's right. Pornhub seems to have received a lot of traffic during the Facebook and Instagram outage. The porn site reported that its traffic immediately spiked by 11 per cent and kept increasing until it hit 19-percent above the average. Additionally, Pornhub also noted that the users specifically searched for 'Instagram' and 'Facebook'. Apparently, the website registered a 323-percent spike in searches for 'Instagram' and a 221-per cent spike in searches for 'Facebook'. Looks like social media addiction is a real thing. © Twitter On a totally unrelated note (or maybe not), people were also searching for terms like 'tentacle porn' among other terms like WWE, Marvel, and Fortnite. Why would there be a spike in search for these terms when Facebook and Instagram went down? Well, that's not on us to figure out.
  9. We don't watch the Super Bowl here in India - I don't think it's even broadcasted here - but it's one of the biggest sporting events in the USA and somehow, also becomes international news. The highlight of this year's Super Bowl, though, was Adam Levine and his nipples. Yep, his nips. © Twitter But, to understand why that's causing so much backlash, we have to remember a Super Bowl halftime show from a few years ago, 15 years to be exact. The infamous show from 2004 featured Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson, and a controversy that is still talked about. During the show, Justin went to remove Janet's corset but accidentally tore off her bra too, exposing her bare breast. What followed was a widespread criticism for Janet Jackson which affected her career tremendously, but Justin Timberlake moved on unscathed. But, the infamous 'Nipplegate' is being talked about again today because well, didn't Adam Levine do the exact same thing, but just intentionally? People are questioning why Janet Jackson's nipples were such a problem when Adam Levine is not being pulled up for the same thing. While offended, people haven't lost their sense of humour and are tweeting sarcastic funny thing. Here's what everyone is saying: Eww, nips. now I have to explain to my children that adam levine has nipples — ziwe (@ziwe) February 4, 2019 Exactly the same. adam levine took off his shirt like an uncle at thanksgiving when kid rock comes on — elijah daniel (@elijahdaniel) February 4, 2019 There were a lot of home decor comparisons as well.

  10. The mention of Diwali evokes glorious images of multi-hued Chinese lights dotting every building in the vicinity, a mixed array of lamps and candles gracing all the flat surfaces along the way, and of course the loaded plateful of sweets and the sparkling new clothes which complete the prep for the celebrations. What? You think I forgot to mention something? Yes, the puja, right? Of course, no Diwali celebration can begin without the blessings of Lord Ganesh and Goddess Laxmi, on this auspicious occasion. What else? You certainly aren't hinting at those loudmouthed elements that wreak havoc on Diwali, are you? © Wikipedia Well, seems like you are talking about the firecrackers after all. Well, given Delhi's current air quality and its inhabitants' constant struggle to take the next breath of air, besides of course the Supreme Court's ban on everything except green crackers, I'd say that petitioning for free-use of firecrackers at this point is a little ill-timed. The national capital is literally choking on its own air even as you read this. The latest CPCB data on Tuesday states that the overall Air Quality Index (AQI) was recorded at 394, which falls in the 'very poor' category, and warning has been put out that the situation will only get worse. Yet, here you are questioning my decision to do away with the mention of firecrackers on a Diwali post, and challenging the wisdom of the SC judges who called for the partial ban and even gave a free pass to bursting of green crackers between 8 pm to 10 pm tomorrow, in the spirit of the celebrations. © Tipping Points Film Anyhow, before you go any further to bash me over my cause to discourage you from bursting crackers, maybe you'd like to know that bursting crackers on Diwali has never been a part of ancient Hindu tradition. It simply happened to be a result of social interactions with China, which were adopted by Indians. Don't believe me? But history has proof. History shows that firecrackers were first invented in China, which made their way to India and other neighbouring countries due to trade movements. Historian P K Gode talks about the existence of gunpowder in 1400 AD and the first evidence of which could be found in the Tang dynasty in his 'History of Fireworks in India between 1400 and 1900'. © Flickr According to Chinese belief system, loud sounds and bright light helps to ward off evil, and therefore it was a popular practice in that part of the world. However, higher price initially prevented commoners from accessing it easily, thus was usually the royals who made use of fireworks for their personal entertainment. Numerous travelogues by ancient travellers validate this fact, as can also be seen in Marathi chronicle text 'Peshwayanchi Bakhar'. But the Chinese belief soon made its way to India and found acceptance as the signifier of victory of good over evil. Thus, people chose to light crackers during Diwali to mark their celebration of Ram and Sita's return from exile, after having defeated the evil Ravana. © Wikipedia Diwali was always meant to be a celebration of lights, the crackers came much later. Apart from deafening sounds and loads of air pollution, is only brings you smog (and a little more closer to your death). So go green this Diwali, it'll help us all in the long run.
  11. Okay, so before you start judging me and think that 'this is the same guy who earlier told us not to use mass gainers', let me make it very clear that I am not promoting extensive use of mass gainers. I am still a firm believer of clean bulking and that it can get you jacked without a lot of fat gain. In this piece though, I will discuss a few situations where you can put your mass gainers to sensible use. So, if you have a mass gainer tub you bought and never used, here are some tips that will help you put them to use, right alongside your diet. Mass Gainers As A Supplement © Thinkstock Images Mass Gainers are simply supplements that help you consume extra calories. This leads to increased daily caloric intake, which is essential for putting on muscle mass. But what usually happens is that dudes consume it way too much and end up getting fat, not muscular. They are generally sold in big sizes like 6lb and 12lb tub with huge per serving sizes that can go up to 250gm per serving. Each scoop can easily fetch more than a thousand calories. The composition is moderately high in protein and very high carbs. The only problem with mass gainers is that they contain more sugar than you actually need. The amount can go up to 20gm of sugar per serving in some products. It is almost like consuming sugar syrup along with your shake. Simply horrendous! How To PROPERLY Use Mass Gainers © Thinkstock Images Like I mentioned above, mass gainers are loaded with calories. So for someone who is looking to gain muscle mass, this can be useful if used mindfully. While Travelling You can use your mass gainer as a complete meal replacement in some situations. A serving of mass gainer has almost, if not less, the nutrition of your 'gaining diet'. So at times, when you know that you are about to miss your diet due to a busy schedule or travelling, you can actually put your mass gainer to use. Just have a serving of mass gainer to complete your macro intake, that's it! This way, you will be able to maintain your required daily caloric surplus with ease. This comes in very handy while travelling especially. © Thinkstock Images Consuming In Smaller Quantities Another wise use of mass gainer is to use it in smaller quantity, instead of the recommended servings. The recommended serving of a mass gainer is generally very high and feeds you around 1200-1500 calories in a single serving. Majority of people would actually feel bloated after consuming such a large number of calories in one go. So instead, use a smaller portion of this recommended serving. Let's say, one-fourth of the recommended serving and add some whey protein to increase its protein content. That way you can consume mass gainers to increase your calorie intake slightly, while not drastically increasing daily calorie intake.

  13. If you happen to travel a lot to work every day, I feel you. I am also in the same league as yours. I spend almost 4 plus hours in traffic every day. It gets frustrating when you want to stick to a regular workout and dieting schedule. It seems that all the valuable time was spent stuck in the traffic. Well, it is what it is. The job puts the food on the table and you have to show up. No way around that. Now what you can do are these following things that I have devised over the past 3 years of struggling with travelling for long hours and still getting in the best shape of my life. 1) Always Cook In Advance. Always! Cook all your meals a night before. I do that and it works like a breeze. Wake up, freshen up, pack your meals and you are good to go. No cooking hassles in the morning. If not at night, do it whenever you find the time to do so. But do it a day in advance. This will save you time, energy and mental peace. 2) Leave Home And Work On Time Now this is one of the most crucial aspects. Give your best while you are at work but don't overstay unnecessarily. If the day's work strictly demands your presence, do it. If it doesn't, don't stick around and waste your time small talking to your colleagues. Pointless smoke and coffee breaks won't get you fit. Same applies for showing up at work on time. Try this and you will see an ocean of change in your daily life. © YouTube 3) Stick To Your Diet Like Glue. Office Snacking Can Quickly Add Up Calories Without You Even Realizing Dieting will make or break your health goals. It all boils down to how strictly you diet, even in tough circumstances. Office snacking, a couple of pizza slices, a can of coke, all this will only add up to extra calories. At work, temptations are many but you have got to stay strong. Stick to your daily caloric limit with bare minimum cheats. This will keep you on track and guilt away. 4) Sleep On Time, Almost Every Day I won't stress on how important sleep is, you already know that. Sleeping on time will save time in the morning, kill the feeling of sluggishness at work and make you very, very productive. © YouTube 5) Have A Workout Plan To Follow. Don't Waste Your Time At The Gym Probably the most overlooked thing. Walking around staring at the mirror, small talking with gym monkeys and walking on the treadmill isn't time invested, it's time wasted. Get yourself a training log with all your workouts listed down. Walk in with an aim and walk out satisfied.
  14. Making an account on a website is one of the simplest things out there, as we all do it so often, without facing a problem. But, as it turns out that a lot of us were just taking this simple everyday task for granted and some people don't have that privilege. Are you confused? Let me explain. A woman named Natalie Weiner just wanted to make an account, like all of us do, but she faced a problem we could never even imagine. Her own name is apparently offensive and cannot be used online on that site. Imagine some random website telling you that your name, your whole identification is offensive. That's gotta hurt. But, Ms. Weiner here couldn't help but enjoy this hilariously absurd situation and even called it the 'best thing that has happened to her'. this is without a doubt the best thing that's ever happened to me pic.twitter.com/rnVkmhB2dy — Natalie Weiner (@natalieweiner) August 28, 2018 She soon realized she wasn't alone in this cruel world and had so many people with unfortunate names to give her company.

As a Dickman I know the struggle is real — Mike Dickman (@TheMikeDickman) August 29, 2018 Or, it could just be Phillips Porn.

  16. Walking through the crowded lanes and trying to pick out veggies is a Herculean task. But when your sabziwali looks like a celebrity, suddenly the chore doesn't seem so cumbersome, right? Something like that happened recently, and a woman, looking eerily like the gorgeous Adah Sharma, was spotted selling vegetables. Come away with me and #TheRedYouNeed . . .

Anyway, Adah Sharma seems to have turned into a vegetable vendor for the West. Wearing a simple sari and her fair face polished into a tan-brown shade, Adah was spotted apparently doing a look test for a Hollywood film. Never go back to what broke you...

In order to fit the bill, her complexion was also changed, because apparently, whoever sells veggies has to be super tanned.

  17. I think it's safe to assume that all of us want to be fit. Whether it's because we want to be the best version of ourselves, because we want to be strong, or because we just want to live a healthier lifestyle, staying fit has - thankfully - become a lifestyle choice that more and more people are adhering to. And while going to the gym is certainly the most effective way of staying in shape, going for a run has its benefits as well. In fact, most people who choose to not go to the gym usually rely on their morning or evening runs to stay fit. But running can often seem like a monotonous route (pun intended!) to take, one that can seem pretty basic and mundane. So with that in mind, here are 5 running tips you should adhere to if you want to make it more fun (and safe!) for you. 1) Use Quality Headphones For Running © Pexels Just like any other workout, listening to music while you go for a run can actually help energise you. As such, owning a quality pair of wireless headphones and listening to your favourite songs is a great way of pumping yourself up during your runs. When searching for the best Bluetooth headphones for running, you should keep an eye out on ones belonging to premium brands (JBL, Boat and Skullcandy come to mind) that offer a good wireless range and optimum battery life. 2) Invest In The Right Shoes © Pexels While it may not involve you having to go to a gym, you shouldn't forget that running is a physical exercise. And just like any physical exercise you do, the risk of injury is always there. As such, investing in the best running shoes is mandatory. There are many factors that you should keep in mind before you purchase a pair of running shoes - your weight, the drop of the shoe (which is basically the difference between the forefoot measurements and the heel) and the cushioning that the shoe will provide you. If you make an informed choice, not only do you make running more fun, but you also ensure that you don't get accidently injured. 3) Switch Things Up A Bit It's not for nothing that people say that variety is the spice of life! As such, you can also mix in some cardio exercises in the middle of your runs to break the monotony and make things more fun. For instance, adding a few jumping jacks, butt kicks, squat jumps and jumping lunges to your run can make things less boring. 4) Take A Walk Or Jog Break © Pexels Nowhere is it written that you should run for 30 minutes straight without taking any breaks whatsoever - after all, you're not Usain Bolt! So it's advisable to take walk/jog breaks while you're running. Not only will doing so ensure that you don't run out of stamina, but it will also help you be gentler on your body. 5) Don't Do It Alone Just like having a gym partner can make working out less mundane, going for your runs with a friend or family member can make them a lot more fun as well. Apart from ensuring that you'll always have a source of motivation right next to you, you can rely on your running partner for some healthy competition as well.
  18. Way before Varun Dhawan stepped into the move biz, his father David Dhawan was re-defining fashion with every movie he directed/produced. Truth be told: 'Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya', 'Jodi No. 1', 'Mujhse Shaadi Karogi' were way ahead of their sartorial eras, after all. But this is like starting the conversation in the living room and ending it in the bedroom (of the same house). Because in no time, his son, Varun Dhawan started to give fashion a new meaning through his outings and movies, one outfit at a time (as he became an actor) and even today, is always game for taking his style for a spin, even if it's for just a small apparel detail. From pop-coloured kurtas, PVC jackets, mesh bombers, metallic bottoms to even just a plain, simple graphic T-shirt — Varun has given celebrity menswear a face of its own. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani © Instagram/Akshay Tyagi So well, when he recently uploaded a still from 'Sui Dhaaga' (his upcoming movie) on his Instagram, featuring a perfect summer-shirt (read: linen) with a contrasting placket, we were quick to notice the small detail and bring it onto the pedestal. For a fact, contrasting plackets have been a major part of menswear for a long time, but are hardly given any recognition, really. Or shall we say, importance? ममता à¤à¤° मà¥à¤à¥ सॠमिलनॠà¤à¥ लिठतयà¥à¤¯à¤¾à¤°? 28th September #SuiDhaagaMadeInIndia | @AnushkaSharma | @yrf A post shared by Varun Dhawan (@varundvn) on Jul 24, 2018 at 10:53pm PDT As seen here, Varun's solid pink linen shirt bears a print on the inside of the placket, going all the way up and around the collar. What's to notice, however, is that the print is on the flip side of the shirt and gains visibility only if you open a button or leave your collar button, unbuttoned. However, note: While the contrast on the flip side of the placket on Varun's shirt is quite contrasting, a few shirts also come with a muted approach. Like this one here: © Oliver + S It won't be strange to mention, that this detail is quite prevalent in a lot of polo T-shirts in the market too. Since most of the polo T-shirts worn by men are solid coloured, a contrasting placket gives them a lot of personality. © Paul Smith All we're saying is, the devil really is in the details. And while picking a shirt for any occasion, don't be that devil who doesn't notice the details.
  19. Lucknow is one of the most beautiful cities in India. More than its beauty, it's the cuisine there that rules every foodie's heart. From the delectable Tunday Kebab and Galauti Kebab to the succulent Mutton Rogan Josh, the city of Nawabs is home to some of the delicious and mouth-watering dishes ever made. But now, Lucknow will also be known as the place where Bollywood's legendary Jackie Shroff cleared the jammed roads once as a traffic cop on a busy weekend. © wikimedia For those who aren't aware of Jackie Shroff's upcoming projects, he is currently busy shooting for the Hindi remake of 'Prassthanam'; which also stars Sanjay Dutt, Ali Fazal, Satyajeet Dubey and Amyra Dastur. In fact, last Saturday, the public saw the actors shooting near the Clock Tower. © BCCL (Aditya Yadav) Usually, when we meet or come across a celebrity or an actor, there is someone or something hovering around them. Either it is their over-excited fans, 4 to 5 bulked-up bodyguards or a certain aura around them that makes them appear special. © BCCL (Aditya Yadav) Probably, this is the reason why most of us couldn't come to terms with the fact, that no one could recognize Salman Khan when he was spotted inside a shopping mall in Dubai. © BCCL (Aditya Yadav) Anyway, coming back to our Traffic 'Bhidu' cop, Jackie Shroff is different. He did not have any celebrity-ish (for the lack of a better word) air around him when he got out of his car to help clear a traffic jam on the streets of Lucknow.

  20. Right after you wake up from what we call 'bliss for 8 hours', unfortunately, a lot of tasks lie ahead of you. Including, an important grooming and cleansing routine, that'll define your appearance for the rest of the day. But since every thing requires a minute or two (or maybe more), it all comes down to your efficiency and the pace you're working with. Take for example, the process of shampooing your hair. There's just no alternative to it, right? Enter dry shampoos, that are almost like shampooing your hair, but without the hassle of getting wet, foaming it and most importantly — investing a lot of time. Agreed, shampooing your hair doesn't take an hour anyway (unless you have a long, long mop), but it's worth saving a few minutes, man. © MensXP Let's begin with versing you with what we love about dry shampoos. First off, they take 30 seconds to spray (yes, a dry shampoo is literally just a spray bottle). Two, they absorb all the excess oils in your scalp in and well, even reduce the advent of greasy strands through the course of your day (which results in oil trickling down your forehead too). So clearly, dry shampoos are a grooming shortcut you didn't know you could take. Which in reality, is also a very practical option too. © MensXP It wouldn't be unusual to mention, that there's an alternative to dry shampoos too. Known as 'texturing sprays' — something we'd recommend for sure — also come with added incentives, in fact. They leave a much-better fragrance in your hair, makes hair styling easier and also add a hell lot of movement and volume to your strands. But besides replacing your shampoo-regime with a dry shampoo/texture spray, texture powders exist too. Just sprinkle some into your mop, and you'd notice it disappear almost instantly. And while it's indulging in the act of invisibility, it also eats up all the oil/grease from your scalp and hair, leaving you (almost) oil-free. Here's our edit of the best out there: 1.

  21. Years from now, when football fans get together to reminisce about the 2018 World Cup, a lot of different adjectives will be used to describe what we've witnessed so far. However, one word which best described this edition of the World Cup is, exhilarating. The 2018 World Cup will forever be remembered as the year of the underdog, as pulsating matches leading to huge upsets became the norm while the underdogs charted their historic runs. Two such teams who had brilliant runs in the World Cup are Belgium, and England. After their heartbreaking losses in their respective semi-finals, they will now look to secure the third spot in the St. Petersburg Stadium. A missed opportunity for Belgium's 'Golden Generation' With Belgium, it can be argued that with the strength and depth in their squad, they were hardly the underdogs heading into the tournament. However, at the start of the World Cup, nearly all experts had predicted that the quartet of France, Spain, Brazil and Germany will make up the semi-finals. While Belgium knocked Brazil out en route to the semi-finals, they eventually lost out to France who are now favourites heading into the finals. In fact, right up till the time they came up against France, Belgium had dominated each of the teams they had come up against. Eden Hazard, the Belgium captain and one of the contenders for the Golden Ball, was at his evasive best as no defence looked like they could stop him. Kevin De Bruyne pulled the strings in midfield, as the defensive trio of Kompany, Vertonghen and Alderweireld were as resilient and reliable as ever. Source: Reuters However, despite all the hysteria they created, Belgium's “Golden Generation” eventually came up short against France. By the time the next World Cup is around, the defensive trio, Kevin De Bruyne, Hazard, and a few other squad members will have touched 30 years of age. An optimist will say this Belgium might have another realistic shot at the world's biggest stage, but a realist will hold back on any such claims. As the Belgian fans lament their best chance gone by, they will now seek salvation by achieving the third place in Russia. England are an opponent they've already beaten in this tournament, and despite England's heroics in this World Cup, they should prove no match for a Belgian side which is significantly superior. It might not be coming home but pride is Meanwhile, the English are not renowned for doing things quietly. As the English team fell short against Croatia, the English fans and pundits who loudly proclaimed “It's Coming Home”, were made to eat their words. However, despite the embarrassment, most English fans are not complaining. Not even in their wildest dreams did the English fans imagine that they'd reach the semi-finals with a side that enthused no confidence at the start of the tournament. From Kieran Trippier's crosses and set pieces, to Jordan Henderson's tireless running, the English have surprised all. Thanks to his teammates' industry, the English captain Harry Kane is now on his way to winning the Golden Boot.

After a tournament of massive overachievement, England will look to go back home with pride by securing third place. However, it can't be denied that England will be the underdogs going into the third place playoff. England has the second most inexperienced squad at this year's World Cup, while the Belgian squad is full of world beating veterans which might be enough to see the Belgians through. However, no matter the outcome, England fans can genuinely hope that this World Cup marks the start of something special.
