  1. Another account of cultural and religious hate based on pure ignorance surfaced, when Instagram comedian Jess Hilarious, aka Jessica Moore boasted about how she allegedly got 4 turbaned Sikh men 'kicked off' a plane because she felt 'threatened' by their presence. (c)Twitter The comedienne was rightfully slammed for her Islamophobic comments by lots of people on Twitter and a compilation of the comments she made, was posted on Twitter by activist Simran Jeet Singh. Take a look: Four innocent Sikhs were kicked off a plane today because this woman was scared of how they looked. Please watch and share this video to understand how hate hurts us all. (see thread below for more info on the Sikh religion and identity) pic.twitter.com/xg8vSfgsYm — Simran Jeet Singh (@SikhProf) 17 March 2019 After the video was out, a bunch of people took to Twitter to verbally bash her hatred and absolutely ignorant and racist rant. Hi @jess_hilarious, I hear that you're fearful of people who look like me. Let me know if you ever want to chat. I'm happy to show you we're normal(ish) people and that you have nothing to fear. peace, a sikh https://t.co/RTmwziDeO5 — Simran Jeet Singh (@SikhProf) 18 March 2019 I thought I'd reshare this after @jess_hilarious managed to get 4 Sikhs off of a plane because she confused them with Muslims. I think it's disgusting that she would not only do this, but share that she did this and then think it was something we'd find funny after recent events. https://t.co/2VChRhI7BB — Kat Blaque (@kat_blaque) 17 March 2019 It's really hurtful that some people see turbans and view that as something to be afraid of. Sikhs wear the turban/have long hair as a way to be publicly identified as in service to others. The idea is if you see someone in a turban, you'd know you could go up and ask for help. — Aditi Juneja (@AditiJuneja3) 17 March 2019 The fact that Jess hilarious thinks it's funny to be 'threatened' by 4 Sikh people entering the plane because she thought they were Muslim and bragging about them being kicked out after the New Zealand incident is disgusting. pic.twitter.com/LjBxSyuB5T — yas (@Adoomies1) 17 March 2019 Jess Hilarious' anti-Muslim rhetoric sheds light on a very important topic; Islamophobia within the black Christian community — dylan (@dylanthegypsy) 17 March 2019 4 innocent Sikh passengers kicked off a plane cos celebrity @jess_hilarious was uncomfortable with their APPEARANCE What a shame Airline company acceded to her request! Sikhs have been most helpful community in times of trouble yet they get such discrimination @SushmaSwaraj Ji pic.twitter.com/suGHcFo5MD — Manjinder S Sirsa (@mssirsa) 18 March 2019 @jess_hilarious you are racist af & sound so damn ignorant. The Sikh man was minding his business, is that what you felt THREATENED about?! #JessHilarious pic.twitter.com/b2DdZJYvU5 — s a r a (@sara_zfa) 17 March 2019 A day after Muslims were ambushed and murdered while praying (death toll now at 51), Jess Hilarious hops on Al Gore's internet to brag about+defend getting 4 people with turbans kicked off a flight because she didn't feel safe. — Candice Marie Benbow (@CandiceBenbow) 17 March 2019 Getting four Sikhs off a plane because she felt threatened shows the incredible stupidity of @jess_hilarious. The airline should have drop kicked her ass off the plane. https://t.co/Z7fySepfDn — rolandsmartin (@rolandsmartin) 18 March 2019 So while we mourn 50 Muslims who were gunned down in New Zealand and Muslims face Islamophobic harassment across the country on the streets and online, Jess Hilarious targets 4 Sikh men for wearing turbans and gets the removed from flight because she's afraid of Muslims. — Margari Aziza (@Margari_Aziza) 17 March 2019 When she was slammed with rhetoric hate comments about her behaviour towards 4 Sikh men, the woman went on a rant over a video cussing people who were speaking up against her. She justified her actions saying “F*** y'all, I feel how I feel. I felt threatened and that was it. F*** y'all." (c)Twitter This probably isn't the first time Sikhs have faced racist hate all over America. Post 9/11, there were attacks on the Sikh community as they were misunderstood for radical Islam fundamentalists. But the fact that 9/11 was 18 years ago and yet people live in absolute ignorance is quite sad TBH. There are some latent lessons due about how not all Muslims are terrorists and how the Sikh community is not religiously fanatic or a threat, to have them evacuated from an airplane! But because she probably thrives on irrational content that she assumes is funny. She thought she could take a dig at calling someone out as a threat just for fun, and she'd get away with it. Well, that's not how it works sista! (c)Twitter Moore did post a video on her Instgaram handle apologising for her behaviour but you know, sometimes an apology doesn't really hold any merit, once the damage is done. Here, take a look at it anyway: Please don't believe everything you see and hear, this is what it really is. A post shared by Jess Moore (@jesshilarious_official) on Mar 18, 2019 at 7:27pm PDT The woman has also offered to donate $15,000 to the victims of the New Zealand tragedy. Well, that's great Jess, but maybe it's time to get schooled again for your lack of knowledge! Jess Hilarious is blatantly ignorant lmao, first off those were Sikhs on the plane and besides, had they been Muslims why would you behave that way despite having Muslims in your family? ð¤¦ð»‍âï¸ pic.twitter.com/0GOMnSo8b7 — Too $hort (@sukhisofly) 17 March 2019 All we can say is that Jess Hilarious is not really hilarious after all and we hope her ignorance doesn't get her into any more trouble!
  2. The Lotus Makeup India Fashion Week just started at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi, and Suket Dhir's collection was the highlight, when it comes to menswear. The collection was all about minimalistic layering silhouettes made out of delicate 'Jaamdani' weave, with a contemporary aesthetic. The designer showcased the subtlety of Indian culture through fabric handiworks and artisanal skills, in a heartwarming ode to the 'memoirs of childhood and those days of merrymaking'. Here are 10 outfits from the collection that are giving us major fashion inspo, while teaching us a thing or two about layering. 1. This flowy, rustic white on white ensemble. © Studiopicsing 2. Muted colours, when paired properly, will always up your sophistication quotient. © Studiopicsing 3. Bandhgala waistcoats are here to stay. It's only a matter of reinventing them. © Studiopicsing 4. You can never go wrong with relaxed, comfortable, printed co-ords. © Studiopicsing 5. Dominant floral patterns can be endearingly tasteful. Exhibit A. © Studiopicsing 6. Baggy pleated trousers with an Ikkat patterned Bomber will take you places. © Studiopicsing 7. Kimono pattered jackets should be more mainstream. © Studiopicsing 8. This Jaamdani weave fabric is giving us life. © Studiopicsing 9. Chrome and blue perhaps is the most underrated combination. © Studiopicsing 10. A pop of colour is never unwelcome when it's impeccably stitched and paired. © Studiopicsing Bravo, Suket! We can't wait to see more such exciting layering trends that can easily be embraced by Indian men.
  3. In the aftermath of one of the worst terror attacks on Indian soil, where over 40 CRPF jawans were martyred in Pulwama, the Indian Air Force (IAF) launched pre-dawn airstrikes on Pakistan-based terror camps of Jaish-e-Mohammad, which was responsible for the attack on the CRPF convoy. India's Foreign Secretary, Vijay Gokhale confirmed the airstrikes by the IAF in a press briefing, "in the early hours of Tuesday, India struck the biggest training camp of JeM in Balakot." Twitter (For Representation) He further said, "In this operation, a very large number of JeM terrorists, trainers, senior commanders and groups of jihadis who were being trained for fidayeen action were eliminated." The airstrike took place around 3:30 AM and 12 Mirage 2,000 fighter jets were used for the attack, and 1,000 kg laser-guided bombs were dropped on the terror camps, completely destroying them, according to reports. Twitter (For Representation) Hours after the attack, people began flooding the social media with their reactions on the airstrikes that reportedly neutralised over 300 terrorists. The official account of the Indian Army tweeted a poem.

  4. One of the first prerequisites to date someone successfully is seeing how you're first date ever went with them to give them a second chance! That's how dating life get's a lifeline if you don't screw up on the first date or avoid a 'red flag' situation; then there is a bright chance for you to be a part of the second date. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images So, in order to have the 'perfect' first date, here are 5 prominent red flags you can and should avoid and get to see the girl you really like for the second date! (1) Don't Act Miserly It's a date for heaven's sake, not a night out with the boys! So, if you do get the bill and you're splitting it, don't become a miser for the last rupee she may have left! What I mean is stop splitting the bill to the T and making sure she pays every penny of the split. Offer to pay and if she wants to go dutch just let her decide how she would like to. Either by paying cash or splitting the amount on the debit card is her call and you don't have to do severe math and waste time on the bill! (c)Pintrest (2) Do Not Treat The Wait Staff Like Shit If you're out and about and don't show any decency to the support staff at restaurants and hotels then you're in for trouble my friend. Let me tell you, the biggest red flag is unkindness and if you act like an entitled man where you shouldn't be acting like one, she's definitely going to strike you out. Women determine a man's character by the way he holds a conversation with other people as well. So, if you treat someone poorly, she's going to show you the door! (c)Pintrest (3) Don't Force Anything Women have a mind of their own and they like to speak it whenever necessary. So, there isn't a point in you telling her what to do or how to do it really. In fact that's a big turn off. Of course decide the evening unanimously, I am not saying let her take charge of the evening but steer clear of the things she rather not like you do. Understand consent and what it really means before taking any steps forward. If she doesn't want to come back home with you or invite you to hers, don't force her to do the same, it'll really not go down well. Have fun on your first date, don't dictate terms or be forceful. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images (4) Keep A Check On Your Alcohol Intake First dates are markers for the second date. It's a good time to realise for both you and her whether or not you'd like a second date. So, it's best to keep your inhibitions in check and maybe not splurge on alcohol and get absolutely wasted. I mean if that's the plan to have some unadulterated fun, then go ahead but if you really want to get to know her and remember it the next day, it's wise to hold your drink. If both of you decide to get wasted then I guess that makes for a successful good first date too! (c)Pintrest (5) Misogyny Is Never Welcomed Misogyny could come under any form. You describing your ex in bad taste, you generalising other women, showing off about your work and putting others down, it takes all forms and shapes and more often than not we don't realise when we're being misogynists because of our conditioning. So it will be good if you're mindful of how you structure your words during a conversation with her. Even saying something as simple as ' you're not like the other women' can be termed as misogynistic. You may not realise it and you may think you're praising her but in reality you're insulting all the other women. Honestly, it's offensive to say the least. Give her more prominent compliments and keep the misogynistic comments in check! (c)Pintrest There are other red flags such as bad grooming and table manners, lack of confidence etc. but these 5 are very prominent because they tell a woman a lot about your conditioning as a man and talk more about your basic inherent mannerisms. A girl does judge a man by the most basic and fundamental manners he may possess and if you have these all sorted, you're definitely a liable candidate for the second date!
  5. The Pulwama terror attack has shaken the entire nation but the ones most affected by the consequences are the ones who lost their loved ones in the attack. Over 40 CRPF jawans were martyred and while everyone can understand the magnitude of the loss, we cannot fathom the endurance that their families have to cope with the death of their lost loved one. © Twitter Major Vibhuti Dhoundiyal, who hailed from Dehradun, lost his life in a recent encounter with terrorists in Pulwama and his mortal remains were brought to his family in his hometown for cremation. It is not the full military honours that he got or the presence of his family that painted a painstaking picture, but the sheer courage that his wife showed to pay him a tribute before his heavenly abode, is what gave us goosebumps. #WATCH Wife of Major VS Dhoundiyal (who lost his life in an encounter in Pulwama yesterday) by his mortal remains. #Dehradun #Uttarakhand pic.twitter.com/5HWD6RXwnO — ANI (@ANI) February 19, 2019 Major Vibhuti's wife Nikita showed nerves of steel as she maintained her calm and whispered 'I love you' to him and gave him a flying kiss, while not shedding a single tear. The couple married last year in April 2018 and Major Vibhuti was bound to return home in April for their first anniversary. Before his remains were cremated, his wife bravely and proudly shouted 'Jain Hind' before breaking down as she cried 'I love you' to her brave husband. Nitika Kaul , wife Of martyred Major Dhoundiyal shouts 'JAI HIND' three times and 'I Love You Vibhu' one last time. These visuals will remain etched in my mind till I am alive pic.twitter.com/BkcpAGWHhL — Pawan Durani (@PawanDurani) February 19, 2019 Dehradun: Wife (pic 1) of Major VS Dhoundiyal salutes as people pay tribute to him. He lost his life in an encounter in Pulwama yesterday #Uttarakhand pic.twitter.com/GEL36EMU3e — ANI (@ANI) February 19, 2019 Nikita has requested everyone to not sympathise but stay strong instead, as her husband was a braveheart who died for his country. While these visuals will remain etched in our hearts for a long time, we can't help but wonder that we don't know what courage or real bravery is until we have seen someone display it as Nikita did. She is a woman of steel and will continue to inspire us with her undying spirit.
  6. In 2019, you should focus on being the best version of yourself. This means aggressively chasing your goals, asking out that crush of yours and most importantly, taking care of yourself. Here's the thing, looking good directly factors in feeling good. This means you should put significant effort into taking care of yourself. This will also help you stand out in a group of people who don't care for themselves. 1. Not Dismissing Manicure & Pedicure Sessions Traditionally, seen as something that only women care for. However, if you have nails that often end up looking like this. © Instagram They will not only drive away your crush but also come off as dirty to your fellow colleagues and boss, and the worst case scenario is that no one will be willing to share food with you during lunch. Now, before that happens, go for a manicure/pedicure session. You'll be surprised to discover the wonderful packages that exist out there. Some of them include massages and a completely calming session. You could even turn this into a date. © Instagram 2. Making The Concealer A Part Of Your Everyday Routine © Instagram The concealer is not a gendered product. Repeat this after me. A concealer is a blessing. We're talking about the racoon eyes that you get from partying all night, acne scars, huge pimples and the hickeys that you don't want to show to anyone else. It conceals everything with one stroke. You can easily steal it from your girlfriend's beauty kit or just simply ask her for it. Additionally, here's a list of other super helpful products you could steal from your girlfriend. © Instagram 3. Investing In A Skincare Routine © Instagram Try to consciously try to look after your skin. Now lathering a skin cream every now and then is not taking care of your skin. You need a regular and fixed routine in place with products curated that suit your skin type. For example, if you have dry skin, choose moisturizing cleansers and creams or if you have acne-prone skin go for anti-acne products. Also, you could make the whole routine fun with face sheet masks and that is literally no effort at all. © Instagram Even celebrities like Ansel Elgort vouch by fun face masks. For a good skin care routine, you ideally need a cleanser, a good moisturizer, essential oil and a weekly face mask and a scrub. 4. Always Carry A Pocket Mouth Wash Or Mints © Instagram Bad breath is imminent if you don't take care of your oral hygiene. Bad breath can be a big turn off at a date or off-putting at an office meeting. It's best to always have mints or a pocket mouth face wash handy. 5. Make Sure To Use A Roll-On After Shower © Instagram While taking regular showers is a good thing, it's also important to supplement it with a roll-on to make sure you don't have a case of body odour throughout the day.
  7. Folklore (and Bollywood) has always taught us that the royalty is good-looking. However, as we grew up, we realized that's not essentially true, and the fact that royal blood has nothing to do with good looks. So, whenever we come across someone from the royalty who fulfills that criteria, we can't help but be transported back to our childhood, where life is like a fairy tale. Jaiveerraj Singh Gohil, the Prince of Bhavnagar, sure is one of them, and the fact that a few people know about him, makes his existence even more alluring. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Jaiveerraj Singh Gohil (@yuvrajbhavnagar) on Aug 21, 2016 at 4:40am PDT The 'Yuvraj' of the erstwhile Princely State of Bhavnagar might keep a low profile when it comes to the public, but is a well-known face in the elite circles consisting of the most influential names in Politics as well as the entertainment domain. He is a bodybuilder, and is also the President of the Gujarat State Bodybuilding Association.

  8. When life becomes dull, it's not easy to find your spunk and fight back. In order to succeed in life, one has to make it fun, positive, and full of motivation! If you find your life boring and unmotivated, you simply won't be able to make any progress. There are many reasons why you might not be feeling any enthusiasm in your life. And there are even more ways to overcome it. Following are 4 such reasons why you might not be feeling motivated and ways to overcome it: 1. Lack Of Purpose It's very important to have a goal, to have a purpose in life. Following it keeps you sane and sorted. If you don't have a purpose, you won't find any reason to move forward in life. Set a goal, fix a target! When you wake up, you should have a goal in your head, and if you are able to successfully create one, you'll be automatically motivated to achieve it. 2. Procrastination This is the worst thing you can do to yourself. When you start postponing your affairs & chores, your mind adapts to procrastination. You won't be doing any work on time and would always feel too tired and lethargic to do so. Procrastination kills the motivation to do anything. Luckily, it's not difficult to come out of this state. Remember two things – 'the 5-minute rule' & 'schedule'. Apply the 5-minute rule in your life. Whatever task can be done under 5 minutes, don't postpone it. Do it as soon as it comes to your mind. You will see a big change in your life by applying this small rule. Small chores will be done, your mind will be happy after completing a task, and slowly, it will start to procrastinate the procrastination. Next is, schedule. Fix a schedule and strictly follow it. Decide at what time you're going to wake up, have breakfast, leave for the office, and every other thing in your everyday life. Give some time for light exercise. Sticking to a schedule would make you punctual, as you would be completing all the tasks within the deadline and this would eventually push you to aim for higher goals. 3. Lack of Money Believe it or not but lack of money can also be de-motivating. If you have gotten accustomed to a lower salary or lower returns, then you won't need the feel to work hard. You would trick yourself into thinking that two square meals & a roof above your head are good enough for you. If that has happened to you, you should become a little materialistic. Set your eye on something, something out of your budget. Convince yourself that you should buy it. You'll see yourself wanting to work harder to be able to buy it. And you would have it eventually. When that happens and you get your motivation back, work smart. Set another milestone, and in your free time, look for other sources to earn. Pick a hobby and try to turn into a profession. You would not only be enjoying your time but would be utilizing it in the most perfect way. A little extra cash would be great for your savings account or for the latest Play Station. Leave the TV Shows and booze for the weekend. On weekdays, focus on improving your income. It is not that hard to find a hobby and become good enough in it that it starts paying you. You just need to be determined. 4. Social Circle Your social circle makes a huge impact on your life. If you surround yourself with positive & happy people, you would also feel happy and motivated. However, if your friends and colleagues are unmotivated and have negative opinions on everything, then this would impact you on a great level. Their constant criticism of the world would make you look at the world the same way. You would start finding fault in everything which would give your brain a great excuse to become slothful. This is when your motivation to do anything would die and you would just spend your time doing nothing. If this is happening to you, you need to get out of such a company. Join some activities like trekking, or dance classes, or yoga classes, basically anything which would help you meet new people. This change will bring a positive impact on your life as you would not only be interacting with new people but will also be joining an activity. This will bring back the motivation you need in your life. Now that we have told you every major reason why you might be becoming an always tired – demotivated person, you should start doing the aforementioned things to achieve greatness in life. Everyone can be a hero, you just need to fight your battle and come as a winner! May the force be with you!
  9. Every man who is a part of the armed forces and serves the country has a story behind his journey. The story depends on his walk of life and how he perceives it, to fulfil his duties. Compassion is an ardent part of any army-man's life, without which protecting one's nation is absolutely redundant. An altogether heroic and compassionate stance was also taken by Major Shashidharan Nair before he breathed his last at the LoC last week and we're as gutted as we're proud about his story, to keep up all his responsibilities well intact. (c)Times Of India Major Nair was a native of Khadakwasala and studied from Fergusson college in Pune. He was a kind and compassionate soul, full of love and armoured responsibility and he did his best to fulfil the ones he wore proudly on his shoulder. One of them was obviously love and he met the love of his life, Trupti in Pune through some mutual friends. Their friendship nurtured into love and they soon got married to fulfil their dreams together. Trupti was a working woman with a masters in computer application and Nair boasted of being a 'captain' and they started living their life like they had planned to. But it wasn't easy for them. It never really is, is it? (c)Twitter Just a few months into them being engaged, Trupti was diagnosed with multiple arteriosclerosis. Arteriosclerosis is the hardening and narrowing of arteries which can lead to heart conditions and strokes and that's exactly what happened with Trupti. Everyone around Nair was against him getting married to someone suffering from a disease like that, but love made Nair stick to his guns and he finally married Trupti in 2012. But their happy married bliss was short-lived, when a few months into their marriage, Trupti suffered a stroke, which paralysed her lower body completely. (c)Twitter But that never deterred their spirit to love each other unconditionally and stand by each other through thick and thin. especially for Nair, who was a constant pillar to her weaknesses--both physical and emotional at the time. Their love story stands out as a well known romance in the army and everyone remembers their love and the fondness they had for each other, very well. They would often attend parties together, with Major Nair wheeling Trupti or carrying her in his arms, throughout, with valour. (c)Twitter Unfortunately, like I said it wasn't easy for them and their love was short-lived. Before joining back on duty on January 2nd, Major Nair took leave to spend a month with his wife. He went back to the LoC where he was posted in Nowshera, Jammu & Kashmir. Trupti being a concerned wife was a little sceptical about his posting there, but he like any ardent and caring husband promised to be back home soon. And he did live up to his promise. But not like how we'd expect him to. (c)Twitter Turns out, the promise he made to his motherland overpowered the one he made to his wife when he laid down his life for the nation, while on patrol on the LoC. He was the victim of coming in between an IED (improvised explosive device) laid down by terrorists there, and he breathed his last, at that very moment, with another Indian army soldier. (c)Twitter His body arrived at the National War Memorial in Pune, wrapped in the tricolour and Trupti sat there, quietly, bidding her pillar of strength a final goodbye. (c)Twitter His demise broke many hearts. His family and friends were left devastated but that's the thing about the men in the forces. Somewhere deep down you have to know that one day they may never come back and finally make peace with that fact. I believe Trupti did the same. Although, she counted on him to return and be with her and share a happy life but somewhere inside her heart she knew he may never return and she would have to carry on with life without him. That's the power of love. Withstanding every challenge that may come your way and step up and be invincible together, for as long as two people can and we definitely found that invincibility in Major Nair and Trupti.
  10. The Indian cricket team created history by becoming the touring party in 71 years to secure a Test series win on the Australian soil. Virat Kohli-led India achieved the feat following their 2-1 win in the four-match Test series. While the visiting team would've fancied their chances in the fourth Test (which resulted in a tame draw), Kohli & Co would still take immense pride in what they've achieved Down Under. Owing to their historic triumph, the social media was buzzing with congratulatory messages and wishes for the Indian cricket team. From former cricketers, prominent politicians to popular celebrities, the Indian side received plaudits from every corner of the country. Amid all the praise, there was one from Bollywood diva Preity Zinta who is also the co-owner of Kings XI Punjab. Taking to Twitter, the Bollywood actress showered praise on Kohli's men for etching their name in the history books. “Congratulations to the boys in blue for being the first Asian team to win a test match down under@cheteshwar1 take a bow#AUSvsIND #victory #ting #TeamIndia #IndianCricketTeam @BCCI”, she had tweeted. While her interest in cricket continues to grow, Zinta's knowledge about the gentleman's game was questioned following her gaffe in the tweet. Unfortunately for her, India are not the first Asian team to win a Test in Australia - they are actually the first side to win a Test series Down Under. Highlighting her error, cricket fans took turns to troll the Bollywood star who later deleted the questionable tweet.

  11. It would not be wrong to say that the saviors of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have done an incredible amount of work in the year 2018, thus adding a significant number of new age fans to a saga that has now turned a decade old. via GIPHY Films like 'Avengers: Infinity War', 'Ant-Man and the Wasp', 'Black Panther', and 'Deadpool 2' are responsible for grossing almost one-third of the total box office revenue worldwide this year. While these films have turned out to be highly commercial, they have also made the fans go crazy as phase 4, which is also the last phase of the MCU is going to mark its initiation in 2019. Information in bits and pieces is being given to the media so that the storylines could be avoided from getting leaked. Fans are expecting the bigger and larger than life version of their superheroes in the upcoming set of Marvel films. via GIPHY Though we don't really know the certainties of the future team Avengers, we may surely get a major hint in the 2019 release, 'Captain Marvel'. via GIPHY After digging a few sources and a lot of research, we have come up with a high-end scoop about the upcoming Marvel films (releasing in 2019). If you are a die-hard Marvel fan and missed something amidst so many films in production, this post is for you. Read ahead and know about what's coming up from Marvel Cinematic Universe in the near future. Let us tell you that there is going to be the latest, more evolved versions of the old superhero characters that will be associated with these films: Captain Marvel With 'Captain Marvel', Academy Award winner Brie Larson is getting ready for the release of the most awaited female superhero film of 2019. via GIPHY By playing the lead in the film, which is also the alter ego of cosmic hero Carol Danvers, Brie Larson is making her debut for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film's powerful trailer which was released in September has already exceeded our expectations. Let us tell you that Captain Marvel has remained an accomplice to the Avengers, the glimpses of which would also be seen in the upcoming 'Avengers: Endgame'. The film also stars, Quentin Tarantino's favorite Samuel L. Jackson, actors Annette Bening, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, and Clark Gregg. Not to be forgotten, 'Enemy at the Gates' star Jude Law is also in the film. via GIPHY The film is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. From the trailer, one can easily figure out that the film is set in the 90s and Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) is dealing with amnesia. via GIPHY The protagonist finds it difficult to recall her past and leaves the viewers stunned, amidst an unpredictable dialogue, “I am not what you think I am”. While, Nick Fury's (Samuel L. Jackson) background monologue explains much about the film's theme, which definitely includes aliens, one looks forward to the film, especially when Captain Marvel is a female at the center of the narrative. We are getting 'Wonder Woman' vibes though! Avengers: Endgame While 'Avengers: Infinity War' was believed to be the biggest Marvel film ever, the audience gave a mixed reaction to the film. Let us tell you that the biggest Marvel film is yet to come and is already in the making. via GIPHY 'Avengers: Endgame' will conclude the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film will be a follow up to 'Avengers: Infinity War' and is also considered to be closely linked. The film will also be giving the final touch to many plots. via GIPHY The team of 'Avengers 4' is working day and night to take the Avengers game to the next level which also means that one would get to see the best from the MCU through this film. via GIPHY The flick will be releasing on May 3, 2019. The principal cinematography for the film started in 2017. The makers of the movie had earlier named it 'Avengers: Infinity War Part II', however, it was later discarded. 'Endgame' is being directed by Joe and Anthony Russo. Spider-Man: Far From Home Though Spider-Man has always remained one of the favorite characters for Marvel fans, the superhero's popularity might see a major rise due to his inclusion in the upcoming Avengers films. via GIPHY It would not be wrong to say that Spider-Man is here to stay and entertain us for a good number of years. For now, Marvel and Sony have teamed up for a sequel to 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' which is temporarily being called 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' (as per Tom Holland's Instagram post). via GIPHY Let us tell you that the film has been scheduled for the release on July 5, 2019. This would also mark the initiation of phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Tom Holland who was also seen in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' would play the protagonist in the sequel, it has been reported that Jake Gyllenhaal might play the villain. via GIPHY However, we are just not sure as to how Peter Parker would make his return after the end of 'Avengers: Infinity War'. The direction of the film will be handled by Jon Watts who also directed 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'. Dark Phoenix In September this year, 20th Century Fox released the trailer of another 'X-Men' film and named it 'Dark Phoenix'. If we talk about the 2016 film 'X-Men: Apocalypse', it was the young Jean Grey who saved Professor X (James McAvoy) from getting killed at the hands of the Apocalypse, ultimately discovering her superpowers. via GIPHY 'Dark Phoenix' will feature Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) as the protagonist and will be a mix of her present and past lives. Though 'Dark Phoenix' is believed to be a forceful attempt to bring twists and turns into the already saturated series, the film seems to be losing its charm even before its release. Reason – The two major characters of the entire 'X-Men' franchise i.e. Logan and Professor X have already died in the 2017 film 'Logan'. 'Dark Phoenix' may only mix things up, as fans have already seen how Jean Grey died years back. via GIPHY Other than Sophie Turner, actors including Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, and Nicholas Hoult would also be seen, maybe for the very last time if this film has to be the end of the 'X-Men' franchise. 'Dark Phoenix' is directed by Simon Kinberg and will hit the theatres in June 2019. The New Mutants The 'New Mutants' is one film Marvel and 'X-Men' fans are eagerly looking forward to. As the title suggests, the film explores the horror-superhero genre and displays the story of teenage mutants getting a grip of their superpowers, while being captive at a secret facility. via GIPHY The film-makers have finalized a stunning cast for the film including actors Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Alice Braga, Charlie Heaton, and Henry Zaga. Earlier, the film was scheduled for April 2018, however, it has now been pushed to August 2, 2019. As per a few reports, certain scenes of the film are now being reshot to add the pinch of horror to it. In fact, major parts of the film are being shot again taking in view of the horror angle. The rating of the film has not been decided yet. 'The New Mutants' is being directed by Josh Boone. via GIPHY It will be interesting to see these teenage mutants getting to understand their powers. Remember, how it happened for the first time with the likes of Logan, Scott, Storm, and Mystique? via GIPHY Got any interesting scoop about these films? Comment below and let us know your thoughts on the upcoming Marvel films!
  12. There is a saying, 'to save your throne, you must win every battle ahead of you,' but we must thank the almighty that this saying doesn't apply in the world of football. Here you might get defeated, but the one who shows true character till the very end, gets to have the last laugh, and not to forget, the throne...!! Something similar happened last night when the two giants of the Premier League confronted each other. Yes, Matchday 21 got to witness the biggest clash of 2019, Manchester City Vs Liverpool at the Etihad. With both the sides vying for the title, it was merely impossible to predict who would come out on top. An absolute screamer of a goal in the 40th minute by Sergio Aguero did send the home crowd into a state of delirium. But, a side like Liverpool, even when they're trailing, cannot be underestimated. And, as expected, a Roberto Firmino header saw the visitors levelling the proceedings in the 64th minute of the game. With both sides levelled and eager to deliver the killing blow, it was eventually Man City who restored their lead through Leroy Sane's left-footed strike in the 72nd minute. Trailing 1-2, Jurgen Klopp's men tried to breach City's defence but to no avail. In the end, Sane's strike became the decider which finally brought an end to Liverpool's marauding 21-match unbeaten run. With two of the Premier League's biggest teams in play, the match was full of exciting events which had the spectators' hearts racing. Here's a look at four major talking points from the game: John Stones Being The Saviour For City © Reuters The first save of the match, which technically should have been by City's goalkeeper Ederson, was done by the defender John Stones in the 17th minute. A brilliant play by Mo Salah and Firmino led the ball the towards Sadio Mane who could only aim the crossbar. But the drama began after that when in the process of clearing the ball, Stones hits his own goalie, Ederson, and the ball got deflected towards their own net. Showing great presence of mind, the 24-year-old youngster produced a sliding clearance, just before the ball could go behind the goal line. It's needless to say that, if it wasn't for sliding Stones, City would have surely found themselves trailing early in the game. 'Kompany's Tackle Worth A Red Card' © Reuters From being a star in the first 20 minutes, it didn't take much time for Stones to be presumptuous of his game as he gave away an extremely loose pass to Vincent Kompany in the 31st minute. Going one-on-one with one of the best players in the world, the City skipper was not left with any other option other than pulling out a tackle on the Egyptian Messi. Being the last man standing it could have been a red card, but Anthony Taylor had a different point of view on it and showed Kompany just a yellow card. Later in the post-match-interview, Jurgen Klopp gave the same reaction stating “How on earth is that not a red card.?” Guardiola Fumes Over Tackle On Sterling © Reuters In the latter half of the game, while Man City was building another attack, Raheem Sterling was manhandled by Andrew Robertson inside the Liverpool box, for which he was not even penalised. On one hand, where Guardiola was getting agitated, it seemed like match referee Taylor was just settling scores to make it more balanced for the teams. Alisson Saves Liverpool The Blushes © Reuters Without any doubt, the goalkeeper is the most important person in any team, and the Reds might not have had a lucky day at the Etihad, but are surely blessed with one of the best goalkeepers in the world, Alisson. Despite nearing their defeat, Alisson pulled off some awesome saves and especially the one at the 90th minute by Bernardo Silva. A terrible pass from another of Klopp's players, Shaqiri, could only find Silva thumping a shot at the near post to be later saved by Alisson.
  13. Whether it was the Asian Games, Women's World T20 or the recently-concluded Hockey World Cup for men, the year 2018 has been full of sporting events. While the various tournaments this year produced numerous moments of brilliance, there were also some controversies that rocked the sporting world. If success is measured by wins and losses, stats and superlatives; then, understandably, no possible point of contention goes unnoticed - which, in turn, paves way for controversy in sports. Just like politics and cafeteria lunch specials, everything has two 'sides' in sports. The ongoing year, too, witnessed it's fair share of controversies and scandals in sports where some of the biggest sportspersons on the planet found themselves in a peculiar position. Here's a look at some of the major controversies that rocked the sporting world in 2018: 'BCCI Broke Rules For Virat Kohli' © BCCL Virat Kohli's popularity took a major hit when his untenable differences with Anil Kumble led to the former resigning from the position of Team India's head coach in June, 2017. If that wasn't enough, the allegations over Kohli about playing a key role in Kumble's ouster further dented his reputation in international cricket. While the conflict dates back to last year, it was once again brought to the limelight by Diana Edulji - a key member of BCCI's Committee of Administrators (CoA) earlier this month when she revealed how the Indian skipper arm-twisted the Indian cricket board into firing Kumble and hiring Kohli's preferred man Ravi Shastri for the top job. "Mr Kumble a legend in his own right was subjected to loss of face and made to look like a villain. He was gracious enough to move on for which I respect him. There also, rules were broken and I had raised objections back then," Edulji, a senior administrator, claimed. 'Coach Ramesh Powar Humiliated & Embarrassed Me' © BCCL In what arguably turned out to be one of the biggest controversies in Indian women's cricket, senior player Mithali Raj opened the can of worms by accusing their then coach Ramesh Powar of humiliating and discriminating her during the women's World T20 in the Caribbean last month. Mithali, one of the most respected cricketers in India, claimed: "My issues with the coach started immediately as we landed in the West Indies. At first there were small signs that his behaviour towards me was unfair and discriminatory but I did not bother much about it". She further alleged that Powar, in a bid to insult Mithali, barred her from being a part of the team huddle before the second innings of their semifinal against England. In response to Mithali's allegations, Powar submitted a 10-page tour report to the BCCI, including nearly a five-page assessment of India's Test and ODI captain. "I was saddened by her attitude and it gave me an impression that Mithali Raj comes first and then India. She threw a lot of tantrums and created a lot of chaos," Powar stated in his report. “I hope Mithali Raj stops blackmailing, pressurising coaches and also stops putting her interest first than team's. I hope she will look at the bigger picture & work towards betterment of the Indian women's cricket,” he added further. 'Those Admiring Foreign Cricketers Should Leave India' © BCCL Virat Kohli became the subject of immense criticism after he opined that those who admire overseas cricketers should leave India. The incident came to the fore last month when the Indian captain had a run-in with a cricket fan on the social media. Launching his mobile app on his 30th birthday, Kohli read out social media messages and seemed to have lost his cool after reading a particular tweet. "Over-rated batsman and personally I see nothing special in his batting. I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians," Kohli read out the tweet from a fan during his app launch. "Okay, I don't think you should live in India then...you should go and live somewhere else, no? Why are you living in our country and loving other countries? I don't mind you not liking me but I don't think you should live in our country and like other things. Get your priorities right," Kohli replied. Kohli's retort evoked a strong response from cricket fans and sports personalities alike. After witnessing a major backlash, he tweeted: "I guess trolling isn't for me guys, I'll stick to getting trolled! I spoke about how "these Indians" was mentioned in the comment and that's all. I'm all for freedom of choice. Keep it light guys and enjoy the festive season. Love and peace to all". Sergio Ramos 'Deliberately' Injuring Mohamed Salah Earlier in May, Real Madrid romped their way to the UEFA Champions League for the 13th time in the history of the competition. The Madrid side managed to overcome the in-form Jurgen Klopp side to seal a thrilling 3-1 win in Kiev. While Karim Benzema and Gareth bale scored the goals for Madrid, it was captain Sergio Ramos who grabbed all limelight for all the wrong reasons. The Madrid captain faced the wrath of football fans across the globe after his challenge on Mohamed Salah, Liverpool's best player that season, in the 26th minute of the game. Many believed that Ramos purposely locked arms with Salah who eventually dislocated his shoulder before being ruled out of the key clash. But if that wasn't enough to frustrate Liverpool supporters, then the sight of Ramos laughing and joking with the assistant referee as Salah walked off the pitch in tears certainly did. While Ramos rendered an apology and wished Salah a speedy recovery post his team's triumph, football pundits and fans called it a sham before slamming the Spaniard. Rohit Sharma Likes Tweet Questioning BCCI's Dual Standards © BCCL Back in August, the Indian cricket team was busy negating the England bowlers in their much-anticipated tour. They had defeated the hosts 2-1 in T20Is and lost the ODI series 1-2 ahead of a sterner test in the five Test matches. Before the first Test, the Indian High Commission in London hosted Virat Kohli & Co for a special gathering. Later, the BCCI shared a photograph of the Indian cricket team and their coaching staff with the High Commission officials. But, amongst those in the picture, there was one particular individual - Anushka Sharma - whose presence attracted a lot of criticism. Many fans questioned Anushka's presence in the company of Indian cricketers, especially when there was no other WAG (wives and girlfriends) present there. @ImRo45 void is filled up by @AnushkaSharma ð I believe WAG's are not allowed till 3rd test. Different rules for different players! — Kevin Mario (@imkevmar) August 8, 2018 Amid all the backlash, Rohit Sharma, who was overlooked for the first three Tests despite back-to-back hundreds (in the last T20I and first ODI), stirred up a storm after liking a fan's tweet that had questioned BCCI's dual-standards for cricketers. "@ImRo45 void is filled up by @AnushkaSharma I believe WAG's are not allowed till 3rd test. Different rules for different players!" the tweet read. Interestingly, Rohit's next like is a tweet calling for his inclusion in the Test squad. "Rohit Sharma averages 58.19, batting at no 6 in tests. That is more than any batsman playing currently in the world," read the tweet which had a thumbs-up from Rohit.
  14. Ishaan Khatter made an impressive entry with 'Dhadak', and even though the movie couldn't keep up with its original Marathi version, everyone was convinced about Ishaan's acting prowess. Ever since his entry, it was expected that he would be compared with his big brother Shahid Kapoor, and let's just say he was. However, acting was not the only area where the young lad made his bro proud. When it comes to fashion, he proved that he is as gutsy and comfortable in his choices as Shahid, and here are 4 instances where we saw that. 1. This striped suit paired with a smart white shirt is everything a fashionable gentleman is all about. Can it get classier than this? (c) Instagram/ishaan95 2. This unusual blazer along with the pinstriped trousers made for a super statement outfit. He wore it for the Koffee episode with Shahid, and proved his fashion mettle on the couch.

  15. Hershey's - the name evokes one of the most powerful forms of sweet cravings that mankind might be aware of. Be it Hershey's Kisses or Hershey's Chocolate Syrup, each one of us has some sentimental emotion attached to this brand name. Hershey's Kisses are more than mere chocolates, they became declarations of love while we were growing up. When we think about chocolate syrup, that's the name that pops into our mind by default, because we associate so many of chocolatey memories with Hershey's! © Wikipedia Such a known brand name, yet, how many of us know anything about the man after whom the chocolates bear their name? Milton S. Hershey is the name of the man with the magical hands, who blessed us with the milk-chocolate sweets that we all love so much. But did you know that Hershey had to overcome multiple failures to create something that would remain popular across many generations? Hershey didn't taste success the first two times he tried to turn his dream of making the best candies into a reality. He went completely bankrupt, but came back fighting for his dream and ended up beating all odds to build his own town from nothingness. The Backstory Hershey was born in the small town of Derry in Pennsylvania, and since his family was always on the move, because of his father's constant “get rich quick” schemes, Hershey didn't receive a very good education. © thefamouspeople He had attended six different schools by the time he was 13-years-old, and even though he was a smart kid, his mother decided to take him out of school after fourth grade, so he could learn a trade. Hershey started out as an apprentice to a printer, but didn't enjoy the job. After two years with the printer, his mother found him a new apprentice job with a candy making - and that was his first brush with what was to become the love of his life. Learning The Tricks Of The Trade Working at the Lancaster confectionary shop, Hershey learnt about the art of candy making. From caramels to fudge and peppermints, he tried his hands at everything, and thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience. He had finally found his passion. © Wikipedia The Big Leap & Failure Having found something he wished to do for the rest of his life, he decided to open his own candy business at the young age of nineteen. He borrowed money from his relatives to set up his business in Philadelphia. But as luck would have it, no matter how hard he tried, he couldn't make any profits. Soon, he ran out of money and had to close shop. The Second Fall Despite failing the first time, Hershey continued to chase his dreams and didn't give up. He moved to a different city and started to work with a candy maker. He gave another shot at his dream, and opened another candy shop in New York City. Unfortunately, he failed the second time as well. The Homecoming Hershey finally moved back to Lancaster, and started a new candy business, which specialised in making just caramels. This turned out to be a very successful venture for Hershey. Soon, he would open many candy-making factories and branches all over the country. This time, Hershey tasted sweet success. © hersheypa Inception of Hershey's Chocolates Post this success, Hershey decided to go even bigger. And he knew just how to do it. Chocolates! He sold his caramel business for 1 million dollars and invested all of it into making chocolates. His aim was to produce affordable chocolates for the common man, that was delicious too. So he decided to build a factory for the same in the countryside. But the new roadblock was where would he settle the workers who for in his factory. The Town Of Hershey Hershey decided to build a large factory in the countryside, along with a town settlement around it. People called him crazy, but Hershey went through with his plans. He established the town of Hershey in Pennsylvania. It featured lots of houses, a post office, churches, and schools. The chocolate company was a huge success. Soon Hershey's chocolates were the most famous chocolates in the world. That's the story of a resolute person who changed his own destiny, lived his dream and gave us the best chocolates we enjoy to this day.
  16. I entered the movie hall with a mixed perception in my head, thanks to some of the reviews (spoiler-free) I ended up reading online a day before. However, being a Potterhead I knew that not even one second would disappoint, but what I did not expect, was to keep getting the wind knocked out of me in intervals right unto the last goddamn moment! via GIPHY I had booked a Thursday night show, for which surprisingly not a lot of people showed up. So it was literally 30 odd people in the hall, who turned out to be diehard Potterheads like me. At one point after the intermission, we all ended up sitting together. Strangers yet united in love for the fandom. The unanimous “Ooooohhh” and “Aaaaaaah” and “F*****ck” was proof that we were all on the same page, as we tried to take in revelation after revelation and punched each other at every Harry Potter reference that was made. (I have a purple bruise on my arm now.) via GIPHY Look, I am not a severe critic. I don't make 'in-depth' analysis and break down the movie frame by frame and look for what went wrong. If my jaw is on the floor by the end, or I am a sobbing mess, or I am left with unending questions...that's proof that the movie has burned itself into my brain. And that is exactly what happened with 'The Crimes of Grindelwald'. via GIPHY Don't worry, I am not going to give out a single spoiler in this, however, I will let you in on a tip: The trailers are useless. Do not go into the movie hall with a very exciting notion about a particular clip you saw in the many trailers. Trust me when I say, the trailers do not give away literally anything from the movie. Yes, there is Nagini. Yes, Credence is back. Yes, Grindelwald and Dumbledore were 'closer than brothers', but that's about it. The rest of the movie, despite giving you the knowledge of these crucial things, will hit Potterheads like a freight train. via GIPHY A lot of reviews have called this movie 'miserable', 'disastrous' and 'muddled' and I just have one word for them: Muggles. via GIPHY So I have decided to list out things that, in my opinion, make this movie, a worthy sequel to 'Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them'. via GIPHY Eddie Redmayne continues to be a pure delight as the gentle, eccentric beast-loving Newt Scamander, who now finds himself burdened with a pretty massive mission by Albus Dumbledore. The kind-hearted Newt finds himself having to some touch decision which he never thought he would have to make, and I found myself sympathising for his dilemma. via GIPHY Jude Law almost steals Redmayne's thunder as the young, brilliant and ever so charismatic Albus Dumbledore, who finds himself facing his old friend-turned-nemesis Gellert Grindelwald. But, as you've seen in the trailers, he “can't move against” him, however, the reason may not be what you are thinking. © Warner Brothers There are a bunch of new beasts, who look absolutely incredible, but the entire hall collectively lost it when the baby Nifflers appeared on the screen. I swear, I thoughts Nifflers were freaking adorable, but nothing prepared me to see an even cuter version of the creature. And now, yes, getting to the part I know you want me to talk about: Credence and Nagini. How the two find each other is not as important as what they do when they are at the crossroads of their destiny. © Warner Brothers Credence is now fully aware of his powers but lands in Paris in search of answers to his past, and that is where Grindelwald comes in. He finds solace in Nagini, the Maledictus, who like him is 'different' and hates how she is forced to do someone else's bidding. Of course, every Potterhead knows that Grindelwald was not more terrifying than Voldemort, however, this movie makes it very clear, especially in one particular scene, that the dark wizard is equally capable of committing unspeakable horrors with a simple gesture, just “for the greater good”. via GIPHY Johnny Depp is brilliant as Grindelwald, channelling the dark wizard's calm yet ominously powerful presence, as he is on a mission to bring Purebloods to power and gather as many wizards as he can on his side. via GIPHY There is a lot going on in the movie, from Hogwarts flashbacks to the backstories of many crucial characters, which is why I must advise you this: ensure you are fully focused at all times. You cannot afford to miss out on anything, because everything is connected. You also need to know the books back and forth to be able to make most of the connections. via GIPHY God, I am dying to tell you the 'big thing' that happens, but of course, I won't. But believe me when I say that none of you will be ready for it. I along with the rest of the Potterheads in the hall was practically falling off my seat and clutching my head in disbelief when that particular scene unfolded. Okay. I won't say anything else. Gah, this is hard! Okay, NOW proceed with caution, as the copy has MAJOR SPOILERS. (Read on, only if you have watched the movie.) I have been holding myself back in this entire copy, and now I am going to pour out all the major questions I had by the end of the movie: . When did Abernathy switch with Grindelwald in the prison? Was Abernathy under the Imperious curse or was his allegiance genuine? How in the name of Merlin did he get a forked tongue?? . Why was the symbol of Grindelwald not splashed everywhere? In the last movie, he gave a chain with a pendant sporting his symbol on it to Credence, so why did we not see it anywhere in the movie, except that one time when Leta Lestrange goes back to Hogwarts and looks at her old desk, where the symbol is carved in there. . Did Grindelwald's henchmen actually seek out Queenie or did they stumble upon her in Paris? Did they want her on their side because she was a Legilimens, or because she was the sister of an Auror? Why was Grindelwald bent upon having her on his team? (Watching Queenie go over to the bad side broke my heart.) . Did the Mirror of Erised scene with Dumbledore and Grindelwald confirm their 'closer than brothers' relationship? Also, how did Dumbledore already have the Elder wand when they were young and were friends? . What the **** was that skull/hookah pipe thing Grindelwald was carrying around? Who did it belong to? What was its purpose and its power? . Okay, the big one now…Credence is revealed to be…Aurelius Dumbledore! (I nearly passed out when this happened). How is he related to Albus? In no way is he his direct brother if you know your timeline, so how are they 'brothers', if we go by what Grindelwald tells him. Oh, God is he lying to Credence? But then how did the Phoenix appear?

  17. “Women! Can't live with them, can't live without them.” Well, it is true! It's not easy to understand women. You can almost never figure out what is going on in a woman's mind. If you happen to be in a relationship, then I'm sure you would understand. How many times a day do you tell her she's being overdramatic? How many times a week you really can't figure out why she's upset? I'm sure many! That's because women are complicated. And there's only one way you can make them happy: by being the best version of yourself. They don't need much, just keep reminding them that you're there for them and you will always be. If you can't figure out what you can do better to make your relationship work, here are 5 TV characters which were (almost) perfect boyfriends (or husbands). You can surely learn a thing or two from them: 1. Chandler Bing – 'FRIENDS' Over the years, I think it was Chandler's character that matured the most among all. From being an under-confident and commitment-phobic person to a married and settled guy, his journey was full of lessons and experiences. Remember the time when he rejected the advances of a beautiful colleague and flew to his wife on Christmas? Or when he requested the surrogate to choose them and told her that it kills him he can't give Monica a baby as she is already a mother without a baby? That is what we can call a true love! On top of that, he was funny too! Things to pick up: Sense of humour, loyalty, and caring nature. 2. Ted Mosby - 'How I Met Your Mother' Our 'lover boy' here had some great boyfriend qualities. Apart from being hopelessly romantic, which most girls dig, he actually showed that it is possible to love someone selflessly. Ted was always in love with Robin and still, he not only let her go but was also okay when she decided to marry Barney, Ted's best friend. Ted always saw Robin's happiness first, ahead of his own. He understood Robin as no one else could. “You said 'nah, it's stupid', which is Robin's version of 'it's important.' – Ted to Robin Who wouldn't want such compatibility? Besides this, he always accepted people for who they are, and never wanted to change anyone, be it his girlfriends or friends. Things to pick: Selfless love & understanding. 3. Hank Moody – 'Californication' “At the end of the day, it's all about her. It has always been about her.” – Hank Moody. Those of you who have watched the series must be wondering how a man-whore can come under the 'near-perfect boyfriend' category. Well, under his casanova and drunk lifestyle, there's a hopeless romantic lover. No matter how many girls he has slept with, the man never cheated when he was in a relationship with Karen, the love of his life. If you notice closely, whatever he did in his life, everything always revolved around her. Despite being in countless relationships, we don't even hear once the 'L' word from his mouth except when it came to Karen. He always tried to make himself a better man just for her. Hank Moody; a writer, a drunk, and a lover! Things to pick: If you love someone, never give up; or don't love at all. 4. Derek Shepherd – 'Grey's Anatomy' The McDreamy here is one of the most dedicated on-screen boyfriends. He was shown to have a serious relationship with two women and he did his best to make both of them work. The guy never cheated, he was always there for his partners (in sickness and in health), and his commitment was always rock-solid. Remember when in S02E17, Derek visits Meredith after the bomb incident and they're standing at her door talking like exes who are sort of friends? Meredith tells him she can't remember their last kiss, to which Derek turns to leave but then stops and says “You kissed me, soft. It was quick. Kind of like a habit. You know, like we would do it every day for the rest of our lives.” If that isn't romantic, I don't know what is. Things to pick: Patience, forgiveness, and the 'I'm always there for you' part. 5. Cameron Tucker – Modern Family Cam is one of the most supportive boyfriends ever seen in TV shows. He's emotional, would do everything he can to help out his boyfriend Mitch, and is full of entertainment. Be it Mitch's conservative-ish dad, or Mitch's not-so-smooth professional life, or the tantrums of Mitch when he's upset; Cam always stood by him through thick and thin. He never worried about making himself a fool just to see Mitch smile. If a relationship that can be called rock solid, it's theirs. Things to pick: Supportive behaviour, entertaining & fun loving attitude.
  18. When love comes to town, there's a certain music in the air you simply can't miss, and this seems to be the case for Shibani Dandekar and Farhan Akhtar, who made their relationship public very recently. It was at the beginning of September when Shibani shared a photo on her Instagram feed, where she was holding the hand of a “mystery man” who was facing away from the camera. View this post on Instagram photo cred @anuragrao A post shared by Shibani Dandekar (@shibanidandekar) on Sep 1, 2018 at 8:12am PDT The entire nation switched their detective-mode on and began speculating who the man in the photograph might be. From celebrity tabloids to the fans, everybody was seen pinning their guesses on Bollywood's multi-talented celeb Farhan Akhtar. As it would later turn out, with Farhan sharing the same image on his Instagram feed last week, complete with a 'heart' emoticon, that the “mystery man” in Shibani's life is indeed Farhan himself. Fans had taken this post to be a “public confirmation” of sorts. View this post on Instagram â¤ï¸ A post shared by Farhan Akhtar (@faroutakhtar) on Oct 14, 2018 at 11:43pm PDT Ever since the couple has been sharing snippets of their time together every now and then. Be it taking a hike together, or wishing each other on their birthday (all with hearts and kiss emoticons), they have shared many of their memories with the world. However, it is this latest video that Shibani shared on Instagram that's become the talk of the town. The very smitten and in-love Shibani can be seen dancing to Farhan's song 'Señorita' from the movie 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara', along with a friend, while vacationing in Australia. This sure is #CoupleGoals #RelationshipGoals for millennials. Check out the video here: View this post on Instagram Some Bondi swag!! ððhow cool are we @eddiecowan ??? Had so much fun with you bro! @australia @espncricinfo @sydney #thatbrowngirl #Undiscoveraustralia âï¸ð‍âï¸ A post shared by Shibani Dandekar (@shibanidandekar) on Oct 24, 2018 at 12:52am PDT Fellow friends and colleagues from the industry have also commented on the post, stating that she seems to be very much in love. Singer Meiyang Chang also commented on the post saying, “I see your love for Farhan Akhtar will never fade :D". Post the surfacing of allegations against Farhan's cousin Sajid Khan in the #MeToo movement, people started bashing Farhan for not speaking out about his cousin sooner, or taking a step against him. During this time too, Shibani came forward to stand beside Farhan on social media, and said that blaming family members for not knowing isn't justified or fair. Shibani seems to be doing well both as a partner and a lover, won't you say?
  19. Not very long ago, Indian cricket was rocked by a controversy over the presence of the cricketers' wives and girlfriends (WAGs) on the overseas tours. The Indian team was touring England when the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was called out for its dual standards regarding the WAGs. In one particular incident that came ahead of the second Test, Virat Kohli's wife Anushka Sharma was seen posing in the photograph with the other cricketers, who were invited by the Indian High Commission in London. The Bollywood actress stood near Kohli in the centre of the picture, while none of the other members' wives or partners were to be seen. #TeamIndia members at the High Commission of India in London. pic.twitter.com/tUhaGkSQfe — BCCI (@BCCI) August 7, 2018 Soon, the Indian cricket fans came out all guns blazing against the BCCI for its double standards over the treatment of the other WAGs. Indian opener Rohit Sharma was also seen liking a tweet from a fan, who pointed out how the BCCI had different rules for different players. Ahead of the series, the Indian board had confirmed that the WAGs will be given only 14 days to accompany their partners - a directive that was only applicable after the first three Tests. Amid all the fracas, the Indian captain had urged the BCCI to alter the ruling and let them stay for the full course. And, finally, as Kohli requested, the Committee of Administrators (CoA) has now decided to let the WAGs stay for the full course of the campaign, barring the first 10 days. © Instagram According to a TOI report, Kohli had asked the Board to allow the Indian WAGs to accompany the cricketers after the passing of 10 days on the overseas tour. The new ruling was passed in support of the Indian cricketers, as the CoA believes that the WAGs' presence will only create a positive atmosphere within the team and will provide an able support system. A similar rule was applied by Cricket Australia when their CEO James Sutherland had allowed WAGs to give company to the cricketers, despite their presence being blamed for the Aussies' dismal outing against England during the Ashes back then. Earlier, Kohli also faced a lot of backlash for requesting the BCCI to extend the stay of Indian WAGs during their overseas tours: Mujhe shaq hai Kohli ki biwi Bollywood ke satoriyon se mili hui hai...wo betting karti hai aur ye uuljalool team selection karta rehta hai ðµ https://t.co/SBbLjqsEQL — Hemant (@hemant10) October 17, 2018 It shows @imVkohli is trying to push his personal plans.Virat you are good cricketer but few rules need to be followed by everyone & especially when one is captain.Either play cricket or stay back with your wife. @BCCI — Rohit Kumbhojkar (@ROHITKUMBHOJKAR) October 7, 2018 @imVkohli u r the most selfish who want to change @BCCI rules & why @AnushkaSharma is present at team's meeting . ð ð ð — Beinghumane (@Intern24) October 7, 2018 bhai @imVkohli tere Honeymoon khatam hi nahi ho rhe hai...ðð — Jeetu (@BACK_BencherGuy) October 7, 2018 @imVkohli do not take this personal but you are not going on a family trip.

  20. We always look up to Bollywood for style inspiration, and this week has not disappointed us. Here is a list of 10 men from Bollywood whose style game was on point. 1. Ayushmann Khurrana © Instagram Ayushmann's black and white ensemble was all about sophisticated, innovatively layered street style. The Armaan Randhawaa jacket and sneakers by Adidas Originals are definitive collectibles. 2. Karan Tacker © Instagram Karan Tacker's cerulean blue blazer with white polka dots near the hem spelled elegance and grace in a manner that is effortlessly edgy. 3. Gurmeet Choudhary © Viral Bhayani Gurmeet Choudhary went the traditional route in a classy white kurta pyjama. The Pathani kurta along with the super relaxed pyjamas are as sophisticated as they are comfortable. 4. Ranbir Kapoor © Viral Bhayani Ranbir Kapoor was nonchalantly classy in a pair of ripped blue jeans and an unbuttoned checked shirt. The mustard beige shoes are a perfect choice with that outfit. 5. Maniesh Paul © Viral Bhayani Maniesh Paul's athleisure outfit was super playful and colourful. The red trousers perfectly complemented the grey hoodie with the patches. 6. Ranveer Singh © Viral Bhayani Ranveer Singh's orange hoodie along with his tracksuits with the side stripes is the perfect ensemble for a relaxed, cosy evening outside. The NMDs gave the extra edge that Baba is all about. 7. Prince Narula © Viral Bhayani Prince's bright chrome yellow hoodie along with his graffiti-ed jeans made for the perfect outfit for a late lunch, especially now that there's a bit of chill in the air. 8.

His accessories are nailing the carefree street aesthetic, and the tattoos of course were the icing on the cake. 9. Varun Dhawan © Viral Bhayani Mauji's denim on denim look along with the white T-shirt inside was the perfect 'boyfriend material' outfit that one can totally wear for a first date. 10. Kartik Aaryan © Viral Bhayani Kartik Aaryan sure knows how to keep it classy with the basics. A black jacket over a white T-shirt along with blue jeans and white sneakers - style and comfort done right.
  21. An Air India flight suffered multiple system failure, had almost no fuel and faced severe weather conditions while trying to land at the John F Kennedy Airport in New York. The pilot managed to save the life of 370 passengers on board by manually landing the plane on the runway. © Air India Air India 101 was flying direct from New Delhi to New York and faced one of the worst situations any pilot would never want to face in their career. The plane experienced multiple system failure and was extremely low on fuel. The pilot immediately reported the situation to the Air Traffic Control (ATC) as the flight also witnessed other failures such as the malfunctioning of the Instrument Landing System (ILS) receivers. Despite all the problems, the pilot managed to land the plane at a different airport in Newark. The landing instrument that malfunctioned allows a pilot to approach a runway blindly. © Star Alliance According to reports, the B777 aircraft has flown over 36,985 hours and has been in service for almost 9 years. While the incident was transpiring, there was panic among passengers as the aircraft managed to land. A pilot can fly an aircraft without the onboard navigation system, however, the accuracy often suffers. Today, most Airports in the world have different Required Navigation Performance (RNP) parameters. Airports have different separation parameters between aircraft which are in turn defined by the RNP. As the LNAV and VNAV were malfunctioning on the Air India flight, it would have been difficult for the pilot to follow the separation indicated by ATC.
  22. OnePlus has been killing it in the smartphone segment for the past few years and the company will now expand their business model to TVs. OnePlus founder and CEO Pete Lau announced that the company is now working towards launching a Smart TV as early as next year and it will be called 'OnePlus TV'. © OnePlus In a press release, Lau said “As other consumer electronics have evolved and improved our lives, televisions have remained conventional and cumbersome. We bring inherent advantages to the industry, and with this new division, we're excited to explore the total connected user experience that can enhance everyday life.” Lau added “For most of us, there are four major environments we experience each day: the home, the workplace, the commute, and being on-the-move. The home - perhaps the most important environment experience - is just starting to enjoy the benefits of intelligent connectivity. Something that seems as simple as displaying the photos from your mobile phone to a television is still difficult to achieve. With the development of AI technology, our imagination is endless – and we are looking forward to the future.” © YouTube As of now, no details about the specs were made public however it is safe to assume that the 'OnePlus TV' will offer 4K/HDR resolution while keeping competition in mind. Affordable 4K smart TVs have suddenly become a huge market for manufacturers in India thanks to companies like Xiaomi, Thomson and others offering products at competitive prices. © YouTube OnePlus will also be looking to integrate their smartphones with the television in order to provide customers with a working ecosystem. The OnePlus TV is also touted to have an AI assistant however it has not been made clear whether it will feature Google Assistant or some other platform. OnePlus has been known to adopt a user-centric ethos that could be translated into the television division as well. We could expect the same premium offering at an affordable price from the company as we have come to expect from their smartphones. *main image for representation purposes only.
  23. We have loved watching these characters play out their roles to near perfection on-screen and at times, have also been left baffled (and intrigued) by their quirks and nuances, as the show moved from one captivating season to the next. We loved the plots and how the characters seemed to develop over the course of the story, the rising action kept pulling us deeper and deeper into the show's mystery and the season finale always left us hanging (and desperately yearning) for more and much more! © Facebook While we may have figured how that some of our beloved characters suffer from mental disorders, it would not be wrong to say that a lot has already been said and written over that aspect of the characters. However, what hasn't been spoken in details is that some of those characters may have more of themselves tucked away within layers of fact and fiction. We picked up 5 such iconic tv characters that suffer from personality disorders. 1.Sheldon Cooper- Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder © Facebook Many of you might say you expected it, but here is what someone suffering from OCPD usually behaves like. They are obsessed with order and rules, they work best with lists and schedules to guide them. They verge on perfectionism, can be pretty rigid and need to be in control in every situation. Does that sound like a “bazinga” to you? 'Cause it surely does to us. Be it the “thing” he has for his seat or the weekly dinner routines, this is Sheldon through and through. 2. Dexter Morgan - Schizoid Personality Disorder © Facebook Well, this guy here is in a different league altogether. Fans and critics alike have gone on and on, trying to piece out this character but well, no perfect results have surfaced yet. While a major chunk of followers believe that Dexter suffers from Antisocial Personality Disorder, we feel he aligns more accurately with SPD and here's why. A person suffering from SPD usually exhibits detachment and coldness in temperament along with an absolute lack of interest in normal human interaction. Sounds like Dexter to us. 3. Betty Cooper- Borderline Personality Disorder © Facebook A Netflix series based on the iconic 'Archie Comics', 'Riverdale' is based on a murder investigation following the death of the Blossom Twins. Betty Cooper plays one of the main characters on the show and it is believed that she displays some traits of BPD, such as the use of an alternative persona during emotional outbursts, signs of anxiety, isolation as a combating tool, perfectionism and the likes. Though she has not been diagnosed as someone suffering from the said disorder, many people with BPD have identified with her character. 4. Walter White/ Heisenberg - Narcissistic Personality Disorder © Facebook Heisenberg is one complicated character with many layers to himself, that makes him interesting and dangerous all at once. He also happens to display some key traits of a person suffering from NPD, such as preoccupation with unlimited success, power, brilliance, etc., like Walter White, who only wishes to be bigger and better. They consider themselves unique or special, even Walter only considers Gus Fring to be at par with him. They can be interpersonally exploitative and lacking empathy because they only care for their personal goals. Heisenberg, is that you? 5. Dr. Gregory House - Antisocial Personality Disorder © Facebook A beloved character who made medical diagnosis look fancy on screen, Dr. House is believed to be suffering from ASPD because of a number of reasons, but the most notable ones are not being able to manage long-term relationships, persistent irritability, getting angry at others who question his methods or blocking people out altogether. That's Dr. House for sure. There you go. Did you know about these disorders they suffered from?
  24. Rejections and failures are said to be the best teachers in life. They allow us to assess the circumstances and prepare for a better comeback in the future, thereby not only enabling us to learn from our mistakes but also help improve upon our strengths. While other rejections in life may be a little easier to get past, a rejection in the matters of the heart can a lot of time to get over, especially if you really love someone but the feelings are not reciprocated. As hard as it can be, there's no denying that the majority of us might have been through it. © Pexels That got us thinking if we could perhaps get together and chart out the major deciding factors behind those rejections and quickly got down to it. We went around asking fellow friends and young girls and there surfaced what seems to be like a common trope behind most rejections. These reasons are pretty easy for guys to overlook but matter a whole lot to the girls and play an important role in their decisions. So be sure to read through to find out what they said. 1. Your Personality Is Too Strong Or Not Strong Enough via GIPHY “I see red flags when a guy is domineering to the point of trying to take control of my life. I hate that in a man.” - Lavanya Chauhan We know it seems more like a contradiction but most of the women we asked said that while they liked a man who is confident and has a purpose in life, they were also repelled by the ones who tend to be overbearing and have a controlling streak, thus inhibiting their freedom and movement. They want to be able to breathe in the relationship, but that also doesn't mean they want you to be too mellow. 2. You Exhibit Lack Of Confidence via GIPHY “I can instantly tell if I want to date a guy by the way he carries himself. He need not be the most good looking guy in the room, but he needs to have an air of confidence around him.” - Mohana Deb We also noticed that just like men like dating confident women, women also have the hots for men who exude confidence. Most women we spoke to would rather go for a man who may be average looking but has loads of confidence and knows his sh*t. They feel that men who have confidence mostly tend to be more receptive towards various aspects of the relationship and know how to take control when needed. 3. Lack Of Initiative via GIPHY “I absolutely hate it when guys don't put any efforts into the relationship. I mean what's the point of such a lengthy courtship if you don't give a shit about our future?” - Rupal Singh Now this one is important because almost all the women we spoke to mentioned this one. Lack of initiative and effort in a relationship is a major turn-off for women. We were also told that they really appreciate it when they see the guy investing in the relationship and its future just as much as they do. They like to know that you value her and what you share together. 4. You're Trying Too Hard via GIPHY “But my pet peeve is a guy jo gur pe makkhi ke jaise mujhse chipak jaye. I'd instantly run in the other direction.” - Tara Nair Again, if you feel this comes as a contradiction to the previous point, trust us, we agree too, but when we pointed that out what they said actually made sense. They said that they want and like the efforts you put in but that does not mean they are looking for someone who is clingy. Women like the sense of chase as much as you do, so it only makes sense if that goes against you. There you go. Make sure to steer clear of these in the future and hopefully you'll not face rejection
  25. Social media is known to have given many a people sleepless nights by turning them into objects of ridicule and laughter, and this time, it seems to have come calling for our very own Anushka Sharma. After the memes featuring an image from her upcoming release 'Sui Dhaaga' seemed to have cooled down just a bit, fresh controversy seems to have caught on to her. Recently, YouTube sensation Marques Brownlee, who happens to be a very popular tech blogger, noticed that Anushka apparently used an iPhone to promote Google's Pixel 2XL on Twitter and he could not hold himself back from sharing the anomaly with his followers, claiming that the situation was “hilarious”. Here's the tweet Anushka posted: Look at this beautiful boy ððð#Pixel2XL #TeamPixel @GoogleIndia pic.twitter.com/2cVcRnUGG3 — Anushka Sharma (@AnushkaSharma) September 4, 2018 We can see that in the post Anushka has tagged Google India and used the hashtags #TeamPixel and #Pixel2XL. However, what she didn't intend to do happened on its own accord when the tweet tagged itself as “Twitter via iPhone” and Brownlee found that really amusing: Ok I don't even want to know how this keeps happening but it's hilarious pic.twitter.com/sUuHVh4exw — Marques Brownlee (@MKBHD) September 4, 2018 Twitterati is laughing at this goof-up and we totally understand why: Lmao 𤣠pic.twitter.com/pLDvLxT6fN — mohit nagda (@mohit61058811) September 4, 2018 pic.twitter.com/OMtgdXwmHn — UMESH (@042_umesh) September 4, 2018 She's talking bout you, Marques.... pic.twitter.com/Dz4ZdWbi2T — Huzaifa Jafferji (@Hhj9521) September 4, 2018 Lemme tell you in advance this tweet of yours is gonna boom up in India.
