  1. It has been over a decade since Christopher Nolan’s Inception came out and blew our minds off. © Warner Bros The idea of having a dream within a dream was original and unbelievably complicated but the way Nolan broke it down (while also confusing a lot of us in the process) is exactly what makes the film a must-watch, even today. The movie made us ask ourselves questions that we couldn’t have even imagined of thinking. © Warner Bros It forced us to think about just how powerful yet vulnerable the mind of a human being can be and left us grasping for more with an epic cliffhanger of whether or not Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) was dreaming when he finally meets his kids. Amongst millions of fans of the film, one noticeable face belongs to Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, the man who’s established a name for himself as that of a ‘Perfectionist’ in the Hindi film industry over the years with some exceptional performances in movies like Lagaan, Rang De Basanti and... Thugs Of Hindostan (shh… It’s a joke). Having said that, in a conversation with Rajeev Masand, Khan gave three broad reasons why Bollywood might never make movies like Inception. 1. Afraid Of Experimenting: Khan said that Hollywood is far ahead of India in terms of “their ability to tell stories well”. He believes that the freedom with which Hollywood directors dare to choose the movies to make and the way they push the message across to the audience is far superior to Bollywood. 2. Lack Of Imagination: “They are able to do anything that they imagine and we are not able to imagine only,” he says. The actor feels that it is only when we have the imagination to think big that we can start putting those ideas on paper and try to execute them too. 3. Dumbing Down Movies For Audiences: While trying to reach out to a “large and healthy audience” as Khan puts it, a lot of our movies (not unlike a few Hollywood movies) are made less complicated and easier to comprehend by masses. The difference is that the sheer number of “dumbed down” movies in India is far more than that in Hollywood. It is probably because of this reason why we’ve developed a name most of the content we watch as “mindless entertainment”. View the full article

  3. Most of us have some affinity with certain toys and games, even when we grow older. While it may not be “age-appropriate” for us to play fantasy games with action figures, or small toy cars, we can certainly build our own toys. Or, we can certainly indulge in games that require us to actually use our intellect. This is where hobbies come in. © iStock Several scientific studies have actually proven that there are certain hobbies which tap into your brain and make it sharper, enhancing one’s cognitive and problem-solving skills. The best bit about these hobbies, though, is the immense sense of joy and adulation you feel, when you finish a project. © iStock And thanks to Lego, who have finally officially launched their products in India, we actually have tons of options to indulge in such hobbies. Here are just a few such highly rewarding hobbies that are not just affordable and super fun, but also help you sharpen your mind. Building & Flying Model Planes & Drones © iStock At some point or the other, most children have thought of being a pilot. Then, life hits us, and most of us simply give up on that dream. Well, you can actually buy small DIY kits of remote-controlled planes, build it yourself, and fly them. The same goes for small, amateur drones as well. Even if you don’t wish to fly them, as an activity building RC planes. Building Car Replicas © iStock If planes aren’t your thing, and you’re more of a car guy, you can also consider building car replicas. If you’re worried about options, rest assured, there are options galore. From model cars to building replicas of actual cars, there are many things that you can try. Heck, there are several options for ‘working models’ from various makers. © Instagram/victoriabeckham Fun Fact: David Beckham is a massive fan of the Lego Technic line of cars, and often spends hours working on a project. And if it’s good and exciting enough for him, it surely is good enough for most of us. Jig-Saw Puzzles © iStock You seriously have to consider jig-saw puzzles. Jig-saw puzzles that are designed for adults are proper fun, and they really force you to think. Jig-saw puzzles work really well to improve your cognitive and problem-solving skills. Furthermore, they also help you exercise the part of the brain that deals with complex shapes and colours. Board Games © iStock Now, we’re not talking about board games like Scrabble or Monopoly, although basic board games such as these are also pretty dope when it comes to sharpening your brain. Boutique board games like Shasn are really fun to play, and really force you to think about your strategy. Then, there are games like Decrypto, in which you try to decipher coded texts that your friends come up with. Apart from being great party games, games such as these can keep you engaged for a good time. Building Your Own Robot © iStock Finally, one must consider building your own robots. There are several DIY kits available on all leading e-commerce platforms, or you can collect some scrap on your own, consult a YouTube video, and get started. And if you want to take things to a whole new level, and involve some computer programming, you can always add a Rasberry Pi computer to it, and carry out some complicated functions. Building a toy robot is not only a great way to have fun, but it is also highly rewarding. View the full article

  5. There was a time when the amount of body hair was directly proportional to masculinity but that equation was changed long back. Every Bollywood actor who once flaunted body hair has now shaved it all. So, it’s safe to say that manscaping is the new “cool”. The ways of manscaping, too, are changing with time. A few years ago waxing your chest hair was in trend but modern men are going for a more natural look with neatly trimmed hair. But many men experience skin irritation, cuts and injuries from manscaping and most of these issues come from using wrong techniques and improper tools. So here are 7 must-follow manscaping tips to get the job done safely. Use The Right Razor For Manscaping & Go SlowPatience is the key. It goes without saying that shaving slowly is important, especially in sensitive areas. The skin is delicate in these areas and there’s not much room for the blades to move either. If you’re planning to use a razor, go for the ones with two blades. Remember, more is not better here. Fewer the blades, fewer the cuts. If it gets clogged up too fast, it doesn’t mean you should go harder with the blade. Clean the blade and start shaving again. A two-blade razor will give you a close-enough shave while being gentle on your junk. __ECOMPRODUCT__894__ Shower Before ManscapingCleanliness is a vital part of manscaping. Taking a shower before manscaping will not only soften the hair and make the process easier but will also remove bacteria off the skin. The same rule applies to your tools. Using the same razor for your body and face is not recommended as it will put your skin at the risk of staph and jock itch. Disposable razors will be ideal for this purpose as they’ll minimise the risk of nicks and contamination. __ECOMPRODUCT__895__ Do Some Stretches Before Shaving Your BallsIt takes patience and flexibility to shave every inch of your body hair. Lay a towel down on the bathroom floor, stand on it and do some stretches. Give yourself enough time, do it in bright light and pull the skin tight when you start shaving. If bathroom yoga isn’t your thing, we recommend shaving with a trimmer instead of a razor. Clippers are safer and they reduce the risk of cuts, irritation and ingrown hair. __ECOMPRODUCT__896__ Use Pre-Shave OilRegardless of which body part you choose to shave, protecting your skin should be your priority. Without proper lubrication, razors can cause post-shave irritation. Prep your skin using a pre-shave oil. It will soften coarse body hair and will help a razor glide smoothly. __ECOMPRODUCT__897__ Use A Trimmer To Fade Your Body HairFancy a natural fade? Use a trimmer on your body hair as you would use it to trim the hair on your head. Hair in different areas will have different lengths. The hair on the outside of the chest will be shorter as compared to the hair in the middle. This trim will look natural, it will last longer and will also create an optical illusion of more defined pecs. We’re assuming no one would mind that. __ECOMPRODUCT__501__ Prepare In Advance For StubbleIf you’re going for a complete shave, you can expect stubble to appear in a time period of one to three days. When shaving for a specific occasion, do it a day before to minimise the appearance of stubble and risk of irritation. If you shave frequently, you’re probably used to experiencing itchy and uncomfortable growth. However, to reduce itchiness, you can use a hair conditioner on your body after taking a shower. Silicones present in a hair conditioner can put a nice coat on the hair and prevent itchiness while it grows. __ECOMPRODUCT__898__ Keep An Ointment For CutsYou can be as careful as you want but cuts while shaving is a reality that’s hard to avoid. It’s better to stay prepared for what’s coming, especially when manscaping areas that have delicate skin. Sensitive areas are more prone to cuts. While shaving, if you see blood for any reason, stop immediately and give the spot a day or two to scab over and then, you can finish shaving. Avoid the area that’s still healing for a couple of weeks. If you cut yourself while manscaping, clean the area using soap and water and hold firm pressure for ten minutes to stop the bleeding. Later, apply a balm or petroleum jelly and cover it with a bandaid. __ECOMPRODUCT__307__ The Bottomline Manscaping is an art, one you can master if you keep these points in mind. If you manage to go through with it, body hair removal can make you feel good and confident. So don’t fear it, embrace it. Explore More View the full article
  6. The iPhone 12 Pro is easily one of the best smartphones ever made by Apple and it can be attributed to several features on the phone. From its design to camera capabilities, the iPhone 12 Pro truly is a flagship phone in every sense even when considering the competition. We decided to pick out all the top features we love on the iPhone 12 Pro that makes it one of the best phones to buy in 2020: 1. Premium Design © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla There’s no other phone out there that truly feels like a luxurious premium phone like the iPhone 12 Pro. With its brushed glass back, the stainless steel frame and the squared-off design make it one of the most unique smartphones in the market. When you are holding the phone in your hand it feels like a cold piece of steel instead of a frail smartphone that could break at any moment. It is by far the only smartphone that truly redefines smartphone design with clever usage of materials and an overall plush look. 2. Ceramic Shield © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We’ve tested all of the iPhone 12 smartphones without a tempered glass and were astonished to see the durability of the screens on every phone. The iPhone 12 Series comes with an additional coating of protection which Apple calls ‘Ceramic Shield’. Apple has embedded ceramic crystals that make the screen four times more durable than ordinary glass screens on smartphones. We drop tested all four smartphones from waist level and all four devices were unscathed. The Ceramic Shield doesn’t necessarily prevent scratches but it does add an additional layer of durability that wasn’t present before. 3. Display © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The display on the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max are among the best we’ve seen on smartphones yet. It even won DisplayMate’s award for the best display on a smartphone and broke 11 records in the process. Video, photos and games look gorgeous where colours are vibrant, thanks to the highly accurate contrast ratio. 4. Cameras © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The iPhone 12 Pro smartphones are truly meant for users who want the absolute best when it comes to mobile photography. The iPhone 12 Pro is particularly awesome at capturing images in low light and thanks to the wider f/1.6 aperture, the iPhone 12 Pro is easily one of the best smartphones to use for night photography. We’ve managed to capture some incredible images at night during Diwali. Having said that, the new LiDAR sensor also aids in taking faster and more accurate images in low-light. Thanks to the new sensor, users can now capture Portrait images in the dark with more accuracy and have a faster camera running in darker environments. The LiDAR sensor truly does take Night Mode capabilities to the next level, thanks to which we can now use it in the ultra-wide mode as well. Check out our gallery from our reviews to know more about how good the cameras can be on the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max. 5. A14 Bionic © Apple Apple made the world’s first 5nm SoC in the form of A14 Bionic which is currently the most powerful chipset in the world. Not only is the chipset more powerful, but it is also the fastest and most efficient in its class. Geekbench 5 results are more than impressive and in real-world usage, the iPhone 12 Pro is easily one of the fastest phones we’ve ever used. It can run games like Genshin Impact, Samurai Jack and online multiplayer games at 60 frames per second without any dips or stuttering problems. The phone can also edit and transcode 4K videos without using too much power or by draining battery life. Even with heavy usage, the iPhone 12 Pro manages to last 14- 15 hours on a single charge. 6. MagSafe Charging © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla One of our favourite features on all of the iPhone 12 smartphones is the ability to attach MagSafe accessories. From cases to wireless chargers to even a leather wallet, Apple has truly expanded the use of accessories in its ecosystem. You can attach a MagSafe case or a leather wallet to the back of the phone without having to worry about it falling off. Each time you attach a MagSafe accessory, the iPhone 12 makes a sound and displays an animation. Similarly, using magnets also removes the problem of not having wireless chargers properly align with the coils in the phone. The MagSafe seamlessly attaches to the back of the phone and charges it using Qi wireless technology. Since the MagSafe charger attaches to the back of the phone, you can use your iPhone normally while having it charge wirelessly as well which is not the case with other wireless chargers.

  7. With a rise in shows and movies on OTT platforms, we've slowly seen a shift from typical Bollywood movies to quality content as well as recognition for the plethora of talent we have in this country. Delhi Crime winning an Emmy is a huge step for India being recognized at an international level and everyone is so proud of this achievement. © Prime Video Even though he lost out on the award, he is still a winner before everyone and his emotional speech that he didn't get a chance to make just further proves that. Sharing the handwritten Emmy speech he had prepared for if he had won the award, he acknowledged his own privilege and pledged the award to everyone fighting oppression, bigotry, and injustice on a daily basis. View this post on Instagram He wrote, "An international recognition for an Indian is an opportunity not to celebrate the self, but to acknowledge the millions of marginalised, downtrodden and victimised Indians who are locked in a daily battle for dignity, livelihood and survival." He went on, "As a child of privilege myself, I pledge this nomination to all those who risk themselves to protect the affirming, all-embracing spirit of India, and to all the brave individuals across the world, who fight to resist the malicious forces of oppression, bigotry and injustice, every single day." © Instagram It really is!

  8. Relationships are not the easiest things in the world to handle and if you add the huge stress of the ongoing pandemic to the mix, then ensuring that love remains the only constant in any relationship can be trickier that one can fathom. Here are 4 practical tips that can help you work through any bumps and ensure that the pandemic is not destroying the love in your relationship: 1. Be Patient With Each Other © Unsplash Probably one of the most clichéd advice in the world for literally anything in life, but patience is one virtue that helps anyone in keeping their calm. If you are married and the house has been a mess, the work-life balance has gone for a toss, children are an added responsibility, then please remember that losing your cool on each other is only going to get toxic for everyone living in that house. If you are in a relationship or engaged, then please be tolerant of anything that is hindering your partner from paying all that extra attention to you. It is quite possible that work stress, pay cuts, issues back home, and a million other things which have charged into your lives, courtesy the Covid-19 situation, is not something easy to deal with. Give your partner some room to vent, allow them more space to accommodate and make your own new rules. © Unsplash Life is not rosy for any of us at the moment, so don’t be unfair in your expectations from your partner. If you are in a long-distance relationship, then it might be harder than what you are already enduring in life. If your partner has been unable to fly back home due to job insecurity, visa issues, financial constraints, please spare each other the added horror of emotional stress that this situation may be causing you. While one of you may still have the little pleasure of a family or friends near you, do remember that besides fighting for so many things in life, the distance can get tougher if the relationship is deprived of love. © Pexels 2. Be More Forgiving Towards Each OtherAnother beautiful habit that makes life easier for us is to forgive often, and with a full heart. Financial constraints, emotional distress, anxiety and so many negative consequences of the pandemic have already fallen on our heads and crippled our lives. © Unsplash It is possible that 2020 was the year of big plans for you and for obvious reasons, you had to cut down on budgets, give up on plans among other things. Please remind yourself that these things are being delayed, not denied. So many people are having small weddings, many couples have postponed the idea of buying a new car, investing in a new property etc, the important part is that you are in this together. So, try and sail through this storm. Don’t allow your frustration to poison your equation with each other As far as emotional incompetency is concerned, it is okay if your partner or you are unable to spend a lot of time together like you used to do. It is okay if you or your partner is unable to be there for each other for every little thing, or you lack the understanding of what or how they feel. Communicate and make concrete plans to meet, call and be there for each other. Everyone is trying to understand what is the new ‘normal’, and it's fine if they lose themselves and work on them before giving all their time to the relationship. Forgive each other, and move past the obstacles, instead of dwelling on them. © Pexels 3. Eliminate Toxicity From The EquationThere is a big chance that there are way too many toxic elements around you who are affecting your mental health and inner peace. The most obvious reaction to any negativity in our life is that we end up pouring our pent up emotions on the people who are closest to us, especially our partners. © Unsplash If you are finding yourself more irritated than ever, angrier than ever, or there are other people or situations which affect your inner peace, then take the help of your partner instead of just unloading on them in this toxicity. Tolerance and love should not be taken for granted. © UTV 4. Take Great Care Of Your Own Mental HealthIn continuation with the previous point, let this serve as a stark reminder for you that you don’t need another human to complete you. Two wholesome individuals complete a relationship. One can never pour from an empty cup so, before you decipher what is going wrong with your relationship, take good care of your own mental health first. © Unsplash If the pandemic has caused some major hurdles in life for you, take necessary steps to correct them. Seeking professional help can be a good idea for anyone who needs it and, in fact, a supportive partner will be happy that you are taking care of yourself. Besides this, ensure your nutrition is on point, and you are indulging in some kind of physical activity like yoga or working out and even meditating if need be, to find your own stability. © search light pictures The pandemic is going to test your relationships with everyone, including the one you have with yourself. But remember, temporary problems don’t need permanent solutions which cannot be reversed. Stay safe and stay in love. It's not easy, but it's not impossible either. View the full article
  9. Tiger Shroff just returned from Maldives after celebrating Diwali this year with fellow actor Disha Patani. Instead of wearing a traditional ethnic ensemble for Diwali, he was in a pair of yellow hot shorts at the beach.

  13. US-based Stanford University recently released a list that represents the top 2% of the most-cited scientists in multiple disciplines
  14. There have been numerous studies in the past claiming that playing video games can be beneficial for mental health and it seems like a new scientific study by the University of Oxford reaffirms the same. The study used industry data from gaming companies to analyse wellbeing of players and see the effects on mental health. The research by the University of Oxford analysed two specific games i.e. Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Electronic Arts’ Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. © Unsplash It was found that players who spent time playing the two games reported that they felt happier. Having said that, it is worth pointing out that the study was only limited to the two games and did not use data from other games. The researchers also did not conclude whether increased playtime was the reason behind the participants experiencing better mental health. "Our findings show video games aren't necessarily bad for your health; there are other psychological factors which have a significant effect on a person's well-being," Andrew Przybylski, Director of Research at the Oxford Internet Institute and the study's lead author said. "In fact, play can be an activity that relates positively to people's mental health -- and regulating video games could withhold those benefits from players.” To put things into perspective, the researchers used data and survey responses from 2,756 players of Animal Crossing: New Horizons and 518 players of Plants vs. Zombies. Data from the games shared with the researchers was anonymous and the researchers surveyed the participants separately about their wellbeing. © Unsplash This is not the first time a study has concluded that video games could be beneficial for mental health. In fact, if you are interested in knowing what researchers are saying about video games and mental health, read our detailed op-ed about the topic here. Having said that, the University of Oxford is also looking to find any negative impacts caused by video games on mental health. “I’m very confident that if the research goes on, we will learn about the things that we think of as toxic in games,” Przybylski said, “and we will have evidence for those things as well.” The researches are hoping to introduce a higher standard of evidence about video game addiction or digital harms in general. “You have really respected, important bodies, like the World Health Organization and the NHS, allocating attention and resources to something that there’s literally no good data on. And it’s shocking to me, the reputational risk that everyone’s taking, given the stakes. For them to turn around and be like, ‘hey, this thing that 95% of teenagers do? Yeah, that’s addictive, no, we don’t have any data,’ that makes no sense,” Przybylski said. Video games have been found to have many benefits for gamers, especially in the post-COVID era. Games have been found to develop cognitive thinking, help people with pre-existing mental health issues and helping socialise with friends when isolated. New studies have cast doubt on long-held assumptions that video games can cause addiction, violence and aggression. View the full article
  15. At one time, sweatshirts and hoodies were treated like healthy vegetable soups. The make and taste of these humble scraps of jersey cotton didn’t excite many–other than men on the sports field–but after the world experienced its warmth, they grew on everyone.

  16. PUBG Mobile is now making a comeback in India and is just days away from a relaunch according to a report by AFKGaming. The website reports the Indian gaming and esports industry is currently producing an advertisement for the game with well-known players and a Bollywood celebrity as well. © MensXP The announcement for the relaunch is expected to go live on 12th November, a day before Diwali with the aforementioned advertisements and possibly the game on the Play Store as well. AFKgaming has cited reliable sources within the esports industry. It is worth pointing out that something is in the works as the website had to redact information from the original story. The website posted in an update that reads: “An earlier version of this article contained additional details, which upon request of those involved, have been edited. AFK Gaming acknowledges that revealing this information could have negative repercussions on the game's re-launch in the country and as well-wishers of the domestic circuit, we have chosen to make the necessary edits.” The fact that the website had to remove some content upon request of “those involved,” only suggests an announcement for the relaunch is right around the corner. The return of the popular battle royale game has been in the works for a while with reports suggesting PUBG Corporation has been in discussion with Reliance Jio, Microsoft and Airtel for the relaunch. Recently, Krafton, a subsidiary of PUBG Corp reached an agreement with Microsoft to host the game on Azure, Microsoft’s web services platform. There’s a good chance the game will relaunch with servers hosted on Microsoft’s Azure servers as a way to tackle the problem of privacy which was the reason behind the game’s ban in the first place. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla It is also worth noting that Tencent recently closed the Indian servers of the game which came at the perfect time for the transition to Azure. Of course, this is purely speculation right now and should be taken with a pinch of salt until PUBG Corporation makes it official sometime this week. PUBG Mobile was banned in India due to privacy concerns as the game was hosted on Chinese company Tencent Gaming’s servers previously. Indian Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology banned PUBG Mobile in the country that sent players into a frenzy. The move came when 117 other Chinese applications were also banned by the Indian government. It is currently unclear whether the game will relaunch under the same nomenclature or whether PUBG Corporation has decided to launch the game specific to India. We will know more soon about the relaunch soon. Source: AFKGaming View the full article
