  1. 'Gully Boy' is on its way to becoming one of 2019's biggest blockbuster movies, and we couldn't be more stoked for the cast and crew that has managed to pull off such a wonderful film, with its many facets and unexplored dimensions. In the Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer 'Gully Boy', director Zoya Akhtar has done an amazing job of creating a movie inspired by the life story and achievements of rappers Divine and Naezy, which also depicts the lives of upcoming hip-hop singers and rappers in Mumbai at large. View this post on Instagram The stage is set - MILO MILL MEIN ð¤ð¥#gullyboymusiclaunch A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Jan 24, 2019 at 3:40am PST The film, as well as the actors, have received rave reviews both at home and abroad, with celebrities going gaga over Ranveer and Alia's performances. However, as the film inches closer to completing a week at the box office, the supporting actors of the film have also grabbed some major limelight. The entire package has left the audience and fans thrilled to the point of drooling over these amazing performances and narrative that they have been able to witness, courtesy 'Gully Boy'. View this post on Instagram Best in the Business ðð½@itsrohitshetty @karanjohar A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Dec 6, 2018 at 3:45pm PST However, when it comes to heartfelt reviews, how can we miss Karan Johar and his way with words, who gives it straight to people, as is. So, a few hours ago, when Karan took to Instagram to share his honest opinion on 'Gully Boy' in a lengthy post, the entire film fraternity and film enthusiasts stopped and took notice. Giving words to his heartfelt feelings about the movie, Karan declares 'Gully Boy' a “masterpiece”, Zoya Akhtar a “bonafide magician”, hails the movie as a “smashing debut” for Siddhant Chaturvedi and says that 'Gully Boy' shall be a cult classic in the time to come. View this post on Instagram When passion supersedes grass root realities...when dreams make you wake up to bigger dreams....when you wrap rap into a form of solid expression....when you tell a story that has all this and more....that's when you have a film that you can assuredly call a MASTERPIECE of modern times! @zoieakhtar weaves a story of aspirations in the underbelly of Mumbai like a bonafide magician....she slowly reveals every trick in her genius bag and you walk away with a lump in your throat and a swag in your step! #apnatimeaayega becomes your life mantra and all you want to do is dance the dance of great Cinema! I have just witnessed a cult classic that has possibly the best ensemble of actors we have seen this decade... @ranveersingh delivers the loudest quiet performance oscillating between silence and storm and you are left awestruck by his immense versatility and ability to sink his teeth into every single character....he makes you feel every beat of Murad's beats! Outstanding!! What do I say about the girl wonder @aliaabhatt who explodes like a volcano every time she appears on screen! You wait for her and worry about her next move with joy and excitement! !

Well done team #gullyboy the entire technical crew needs a standing ovation!!!! What a film!!!!!!ðð»ðð»ðð»ðð»ðð» A post shared by Karan Johar (@karanjohar) on Feb 18, 2019 at 1:58pm PST We couldn't agree more to all that Karan has pointed out about the film, its stories and the way all of it comes together perfectly under Zoya's direction and the actors' tremendous acting prowess!
  2. If you're prepping for the big date that you've been looking forward to for a very long time, it'll be very unfortunate if you blow it off with your own silly mistakes. So, here's a guide for you so that you don't make any disastrous mistakes that'll probably turn the other person off. Apart from a lot of things that could go wrong fashion-wise, there are also certain grooming mistakes that you're likely to make. Here is a checklist to avoid these mistakes: 1. Bad Breath This tops the list of things you might forget to check before you step out. Before the big date, you could either take a look at these steps or pop a few mints to make sure your mouth doesn't reek of anything bad. It's important to have clean white teeth too. If you think your teeth have started to turn yellow, it's better to book a dentist appointment and get the routine cleaning done beforehand. 2. Body Odour View this post on Instagram A post shared by Tiger Shroff (@tigerjackieshroff) on Jan 3, 2019 at 10:55pm PST If you have a date at the end of a long working day, it doesn't hurt to freshen your pits with a dash of deodorant or a roll on, so that you can raise your hands freely like Tiger Shroff. 3. Unkempt Hands © Instagram One of the many things that your date will notice about you is the way you keep your hands. If they look like the picture above, she will be disturbed by it even if she doesn't show it. Think about it this way, if you spot dirty nails you would be equally grossed out too, right? It works both ways. 4. Unkempt Beard & Hair © Instagram If your hair and beard are dishevelled and you look like you just got out of bed for a date, probably because you want to send out a message that you want to keep things casual by being casual, it's a bad move pal. This won't get you a second date in the very least. Get a salon appointment before you go for your date and make sure your final look is clean and polished. This will definitely get you brownie points, trust us. 5. Not Making An Effort © Instagram Remember, the Beyonce-Ed Sheeran concert? It was outrageous for Ed Sheeran given the sheer contrast in his and Beyonce's get ups. She wore an elaborate gown and he turned up in jeans! The idea is not to go over the top with your efforts. However, keeping in mind where your date is set, you certainly can make some quality effort that goes on to show that you care, which will most certainly be appreciated by your date.
  3. The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in India, which was passed in 2016, has come under grave scrutiny and protests in the North-East, especially in Assam and Meghalaya. The bill claims to be 'politically motivated' in these regions and has been termed 'anti-Assam' by BJP ally Asom Gana Parishad and has also been cruised by other regional parties. (c)Twitter The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016 was formulated by the government in order to change the deification of illegal immigrants in the country. The bill, which was introduced in the Lok Sabha in July 2016, seeks to amend the citizenship act of 1955, to provide citizenship to illegal immigrants from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, who're either Hindu, Sikhs, Christians, Jains, Buddhists or Parsis. The bill also aims to reduce the amount of time for staying in India to become a citizen in the first place. So, instead of 11 years, a minimum of 6 years of staying in the country would be required, if the bill is passed. (c)Twitter Following the new amendment made to the bill, Assam and Meghalaya reacted to it in a grim manner saying the move would make Assam a dumping ground for all Bangladeshi Hindus. The BJP coalition partner have threatened to cut ties with the party if the bill is passed as the locals believe it will affect the cultural identity and linguistics of the indigenous people of the state. Assam since then has been on protest on the passing of the bill as they believe the long standing concern over the issues of refugees is not going to be put to rest if the bill is in action. (c)Twitter The younger folks in the states have been very upfront about the government's agenda and have questioned it time and again. The ferociousness of their honesty is met with little or no answers so far. A few days ago a young 19-year-old boy Rahul Rajkhowa took to YouTube and posted a rap protesting the bill. The rapper adds, that while the government cannot even help rescue 15 miners stuck in an illegal coal mine, they're hell-bent on helping people from foreign countries based on their religion. The rap ends with the line "...and your agenda for progress is fake" and leaves us gutted with what young people from the North-Eastern states feel at the arms of apathy and agenda pushing. Watch the video here: (c)Twitter While the protests still continue against the BJP-led government in Assam over this bill, with All Assam Student Union (AASU) waving their black flags at the CM Sarbananda Sonwal, we're not sure what the end result might be. We just hope the government realises the fallacies and problematic situations that may arise with the bill in action and take a relevant step towards ensuring uniformity and peace in the region, instead.
  4. A regular day in the life of a person who's interested in Ranveer Singh would look something like this: waking up, brushing teeth, looking up the latest bizarre outfit worn by Ranveer Singh, have breakfast, go through the entire day and repeating the routine the next day. That is the kind of reputation Ranveer Singh has set for himself after wearing the most unthinkable and the wackiest outfits of all times. For, Gully Boy's promotion, Ranveer Singh wore a head-to-toe millennial pink outfit, which like his routine outfits, was again a head turner. Take a look. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Nitasha Gaurav (@nitashagaurav) on Feb 3, 2019 at 11:40pm PST Ranveer Singh called this lovely outfit "falude ki dukan" when asked to describe it and we couldn't agree more! It definitely reminds us of faluda, an Indian sweet dish. His co-star Alia Bhatt wore a cute crop top and glossy joggers, giving out an chilled out athleisure vibe. © Instagram © Instagram Baggy millennial pink Adidas Originals jacket and Prada trousers in the same colour monochromatic dressing, clearly has become Ranveer Singh's new favourite following the ghaghra. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Feb 4, 2019 at 1:08am PST The quirky fedora and sunglasses added that extra detail to the outfit to make it more put together. Take a cue from Ranveer Singh and try this lovely shade of pink, it might just look good on you. 'Gully Boy' will be releasing in theatres on February 14.
  5. Imagine landing a date with the woman of your dreams after you've slogged your a** off, and then you go and blow it by making the worst first impression ever. Sounds like a nightmare, right? Well, to ensure you don't send your date screaming for the hills with your disastrous fashion choices, here's a list of mistakes to avoid making on your date with her: 1. Wearing Your Gym Clothes © shutterstock Your gym clothes belong to the gym and not outside of it. Please don't make the mistake of wearing your gym clothes to a date night. Your date would've probably put a decent amount of effort into their appearance and you should be reciprocating that effort. There is also the slight possibility that your gym clothes might reek of sweat, the kind that repulses people instead of attracting them. 2. Buttoned Down Shirt © artofmanliness Showing your chest hairy/ bare chest is also not a great idea. You don't want to expose your chest to the other person when she's not even consented to it. Besides, you don't want to give away too much too soon. 3. Socks With Sandals © fashionbeans Socks with sandals is another fashion choice that is disastrous. Shoes and bad breath are the two major things a woman notices about you. Shoes and socks are one combination that just won't work. 4. Jeans With The Zipper Open © monogramsigns I know, I know this seems like a really obvious one. But jeans with the zipper open is a mistake that unknowingly happens to all of us one time or the other. For the date, however, make a conscious effort to not let this happen. 5. Wearing Lame Slogans And Logos © artofmanliness Monograms might be back in fashion, however, for a date night and first impressions, they end up being a little lame. You don't want to shout out a brand's name or a funny slogan because you're much more than that. Instead, let your mouth do the talking.
  6. Just as we begin to wrap our heads around all the madness that has followed ever since the 'Gully Boy' trailer dropped, Ranveer still manages to make heads turn every single time! If you thought the leopard print suit was extra enough for the man this week, you are underestimating this guy. So when Ranveer showed up at Soho house with a bunch of other celebrities, he definitely made a statement we can't disagree with! © Viral Bhayani © Gucci Ranveer was spotted wearing a Gucci Logo sweatshirt which is normal (our normal is definitely not his normal, TBH) for him but still costs a whopping 980 USD which converts to Rs. 69,751 only. NBD, right? But his shoes are what caught our attention the most. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani He can be seen wearing the Adidas Pharrell Williams X BYW shoes. This is one of the 'Chinese New Year' celebration shoes launched by Adidas in January '19. Seems like our lad got a hand on these babies pretty early, huh? © sneakerbardetriot © sneakernews The unique collection is inspired by traditional Chinese New Year colour scheme of red and yellow with a red prime-knit upper covered in a fish scale-like embroidered pattern in yellow and gold detailing. Bold 'AMBITION' print runs on the forefoot, which is Pharrell's signature style of having motivational text on his collaborative shoes. Rad AF, aren't they? © 43einhalb The shoe retails for 380 USD which is around Rs. 27,099, which is pretty cheap considering the hype around this shoe. Why the fish scales, you ask? There's a reason for everything. In Chinese culture, fish represents abundance, and a fish dish at dinner is an integral part of the festivities during Chinese New Year. Ranveer's shoes have a pattern inspired by fish scales from the dinner dish! We're getting hungry! © Viral Bhayani May the fashion gods keep blessing this man with impeccable sense of pulling literally anything off. You deserve that winner winner fish-dinner, Ranveer!
  7. The love for football is only second to the pure, unconditional, and strong bond between a mother and her child. But what happens when these two come together? It's something that we recently found out in Brazil. The video of a mother narrating the story of a local football match to her visually-impaired son, from September last year, is doing the rounds of the internet right now. Silvia Grecco and her son Nickollas, 12, have become minor celebrities in the Sao Paulo team Palmeiras after the mother was spotted on TV narrating one of their matches from the stands. Sempre muita emoção. ðð·ð pic.twitter.com/Nzl0qAcpLK — silvia grecco (@pringrecco) September 10, 2018 During a recent game between Palmeiras and Botafogo Futebol Clube, Grecco explained to AFP, “I describe details: this player is wearing short sleeves, the color of their football boots, hair color.” The most heartwarming sight was to see the young Nickollas, jumping up and down with his friends at the right moments during the match, and surprisingly in unison with the thousands of other fans, who were wearing the club's dark green jersey. ðððððððð — Danilo Charlds (@CharldsDanilo) September 11, 2018 Salute to the mother ððð — ManishSingh72 (@Singh72Manish) January 29, 2019 Tmj Nicolasðð — Temisâðð 1ï¸â£7ï¸â£ð§ð· (@TemisSSilva) September 10, 2018 Silvia further added that this activity is more about the emotions than the technicalities of football. Despite not being a professional, she gives her own spin to the events on the field, sometimes even including the curses sent down the referee's way. This is surely not the first time a disabled fan has become a social media sensation by following the sports they love, but this duo of mother and son would certainly be remembered for a long, long time to come.
  8. Apple has already flirted with the idea of providing a gaming experience on your TV via Apple TV. However, a new report suggests that the Cupertino giant is now looking to make a new product that will work on a subscription model. It will work similar to Xbox' Game Pass and plans are still in the early stages, the report said. Another idea was suggested that Apple may also play the role of a publisher with a few development studios. In the gaming world, Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo all offer a subscription service for their respective consoles. It provides gamers access to a large catalogue of games for a monthly subscription fee. Xbox Game pass already offers access to Xbox 360, Xbox Exclusives and other games for $9.99. The Microsoft-owned gaming company also plans to launch a streaming service called xCloud next year. Sony also provides gamers with the ability to stream games via PlayStation Now which includes titles from platforms like PS4, PS3 and PS2. Even though Apple is not known for providing hardware gaming titles on iOS devices, the App Store is home to millions of casual games and players alike. In fact, mobile gaming revenue is expected to reach $106 billion in two years because of titles like Fortnite, PUBG Mobile, Pokemon GO and others. © Youtube Apple has also co-designed a gaming controller with SteelSeries that works with Apple TV. Apple as already patented other input methods and is planning increase in graphical capabilities. For example, the latest iPad Pro is capable of delivering similar graphics performance as the Xbox One S. That's because The A-series CPUs and GPUs found in iPads and iPhones can rival the current generation of gaming consoles. © Youtube/CultofMac Services are a big source of revenue for Apple and since hardware sales have plateaued, a gaming subscription could potentially ad a new source of revenue for Apple. In fact, if Apple provides AAA games with more serious titles rather than casual games, it may just turn the tide in the gaming industry. With the rise of games like Fortnite, PUBG and Clash of Clans, gaming is about to become bigger than ever before and Apple's new subscription could be the game changer for the industry. However, it remains to be seen whether Apple will host AAA games or continue to provide casual games on their platform.

  10. Even after Shaun Marsh's absolute beauty of a performance, the heroics of Indian cricket team's captain, Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni along with the crucial role played by wicketkeeper and batsman, Dinesh Kartik proved to be too much for the Aussies to handle as India won the second ODI to tie the series at 1-1. While Kohli's 39th career ODI century was more of a necessity than an occasion for celebration, it was Dhoni who played like he once used to, during his prime, and put on a show to stun critics both overseas and here in India who were sceptical of the inclusion of the former skipper in the ODI roster for the series Down Under and the speculations of him being a part of the 2019 ICC World Cup team instead of Rishabh Pant, as he ended the match in a great fashion with a six to tie the game and then a single to seal the victory in the final over. It all seemed to be just like any other classic win for the Men in Blue until a video of MS Dhoni taking, what is called a 'short-run', popped up on the ever-so-resourceful internet. Did anyone notice that dhoni actually didn't complete the run here? pic.twitter.com/F9KjKiFILc — neich (@neicho32) January 15, 2019 In the video, it appears as if the batsman walked across the pitch for a single but didn't touch the crease with his bat to complete the run. According to the 'Laws of Cricket' (1744) the rule to complete a 'run' requires for the batsman to touch the crease or the area behind the line. If the batsman fails to do so, the run does not count. "If either umpire considers that one or both batsmen deliberately ran short at that umpire's end, the umpire concerned shall, when the ball is dead, call and signal Short run and inform the other umpire of what has occurred,” reads the ICC rulebook. If the umpires feel that the short-run taken by the player is deliberate, they are entitled to tax the offender's team of five runs as penalty. Although, the suspected short-run taken by Dhoni looks completely nonintentional, it could have had some serious consequences, getting him run-out had the bowler realised, being one of them. Run out chance missed! — Sameer Kumar Bhoi (@ImSKBhoi) January 16, 2019 But, somehow, the on-ground umpires and even the third umpire missed the short-run completely and gave the run to Dhoni. It's the small things that matter, isn't it?
  11. “Ye Wasseypur hai, yahan kabootar bhi ek pankh se udta hai, aur dusre se apni ijjat bachata hai.” A true blue Pankaj Tripathi fan would be able to tell exactly where, when and who said this. If you happen to be one of them, we deem you as one too - a Pankaj Tripathi fan. One, who may or may not have seen and appreciated this method artist's talents before 'Gangs of Wasseypur' became a stellar, commercial success, and Pankaj received the praise and recognition that he had duly earned. Today, 'Mirzapur' is touching new heights riding on his shoulders. Viewers have been left in awe of Kaleen Bhaiya, who instills terror in people's hearts by simply sitting on his chair, hardly saying much. But that is one of Pankaj's idiosyncrasies which seems to have done wonders for him - his ability to go beyond the written character and adding his personal touches to them, making each of Pankaj's performances brilliant. © Instagram But Pankaj Tripathi's journey to such critical acclaims and the popularity that followed comes sprinkled with many highs and lows. That makes his story worthy to be told - yet remains one that hasn't been shared enough. When Pankaj started out, his means were limited, but his dreams soared sky-high. Very early on in his life, he had set his heart on doing things differently. Of leading a life on his own terms, and not giving in to expectations written in stone. A native of a small village in Bihar, called Belsand, Pankaj grew up in a place that is beginning to reap the goodness of civilisation just now. He spent his initial years enjoying the simple pleasures of life. Born into a farmer's family, his early years were spent in the lap of nature. Pankaj appreciated the plain joys that life had to offer, such as swimming in the pond behind his house or running through the fields with his mates. © Instagram Given such a humble start to his life, we suppose you are wondering how the bug to act bit him? Well, by his own admission, Pankaj used to act in local plays in his village where he would portray the role of girls. The audience would love his performances, which eventually prompted Pankaj to take up acting. When Pankaj moved to Patna for his higher studies, he came across the charm of theatre, and would soon cycle the length and breadth of the state to attend as many stage plays as he could between 1994 and 1995. Finally in 1996, he started doing theatre, along with a night job in a hotel. That went on for two years, before he decided to get serious acting lessons. © Instagram Coming from a family of limited means meant that he would have to look for a place that could teach him for free. He learnt that National School of Drama in Delhi was one such place, but their admission requirement calls for a graduation degree. That's how the then 12th pass Pankaj got himself enrolled in a BA degree in Hindi literature. Post graduating, he found himself in NSD and graduated from the acting school in 2004. On October 16th he found himself in the city of dreams Mumbai, with his life-savings of Rs 45,000. But as life would have it, by December 25th, he had only Rs. 10 left in his pocket. Life was hard, and challenges crept up at every turn. But Pankaj was not the one to give up. © Instagram He kept auditioning, kept facing rejections for over a decade, kept honing his skills with every project he landed and ended up bagging a few small roles here and there. But eventually his time came with gangster-drama 'Gangs of Wasseypur' in 2012, for which Pankaj received a lot of critical appreciation from the audience and critics alike. He had finally made it. His credibility spiked through the roof and bigger projects kept knocking at his door incessantly. What followed next was 'Fukrey' (2013), 'Masaan' (2015), 'Nil Battey Sannata' (2016), 'Bareilly Ki Barfi' (2017), 'Newton' (2017), 'Fukrey Returns' (2017) and 'Stree'(2018). © Instagram But that is not all, Pankaj went on to earn a National Film Award – Special Mention for his performance in 'Newton'! Today, he has played a lead in 'Gurgaon' and also has multiple projects such as 'Kaagaz', 'Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai', and 'Luka Chhupi' in the pipeline, besides various other projects. Pankaj follows a simple philosophy in his life, “yaadgaar to mai apne kaam se hounga”. That is what this fine actors eats and breaths - a wish to entertain his audience, who go back home with a smile on their faces at the end of the day. His charming personality, his connection to his roots and the pride with which he wears it, makes him so much more relatable and lovable. © Instagram Yes, I say lovable because you cannot look past this man's standing wit and humour. His passion for acting and entertaining his audience is palpable, and he manages to take you with him to places, you didn't imagine was possible to visit sitting on the other side of the screen. He appreciates the art of movie making, something he hails as an organic process, wherein hundreds of people put in their heart and soul to rear a piece into existence. His honesty, hard work and sincerity have finally found a home in people's heart, who simply cannot get enough of this man!
  12. In case you didn't know, the Golden Globes awards happened this morning. But who cares about anyone winning anything when 'Game of Thrones' fans ended up winning the entire thing. HBO released a 5-second video each of all the upcoming shows they have, and obviously GOT season 8 was a part of it. Just 5 seconds of Sansa Stark, Daenerys Targaryen, and Jon Snow at Winterfell was all it took for the fans, who have been desperately waiting for the new season since the last one ended, to get even more excited for April and for the release of season 8. #GameofThrones returns to @HBO this April. pic.twitter.com/1muHcwJIFJ — Game Of Thrones (@GameOfThrones) January 7, 2019 The tiny sneak peek shows a pissed off Sansa Stark giving Dany major side-eye while saying “Winterfell is yours, Your Grace.” Honestly, I'm not even exaggerating when I say everyone is overwhelmed over this bare minimum footage that HBO has so graciously given to the fans. Everyone's screaming! I'M SCREAMING I'M SCREAMING I'M SCREAMING I'M SCREAMING I'M SCREAMING I'M SCREAMING I'M SCREAMING I'M SCREAMING I'M SCREAMING I'M SCREAMING I'M SCREAMING I'M SCREAMING #GameOfThrones #GoldenGlobes pic.twitter.com/J4aJQsDxmX — Maximoff (@katnissenpanem) January 7, 2019 How to outshine an awards show.

  13. Google's next operating system Fuchsia OS is expected to hit devices in the next few years and apparently, it will be able to run Android apps as well. This will make it easier for Android's existing user base to switch to the new platform when it is available on the next generation of smartphones. © Twitter 9to5Google spotted a new file on Android's open source project website that said: "These targets are used to build ART for Fuchsia.” This means that Google is making a special version of Android Runtime or ART which will be able to run Android apps. "They differ from usual Android devices as they do not target specific hardware. They will produce a fuchsia package (.far file)," the memo reads. © 9t05Google This basically means that users will be able to bring over all their purchases from the Google Play Store to the new operating system without any problems. Based on previous leaks and reports, Fuchsia will be able to run on a range of devices such as phones, tablets and even PCS. This will basically bridge the gap between Android and Chrome OS and work similar to Apple's ecosystem. Having said that, offering backward compatibility for Android apps on the new operating system may make it encouraging for users to upgrade to new devices. Whenever the time comes, the conversion rate can be expected to be fast, as people would be comfortable to try out the new operating system without losing any of their data and purchases.

  14. The next iPhone is expected to have advanced mobile photography that has been tipped to generate excitement amongst users. The 2019 iPhones are expected to follow the same design as the current generation but have some neat camera features. © MensXP According to a report by Bloomberg, Apple is working with Sony to include a long distance 3D camera. This new lens is expected to change smartphone photography game and will also result in better security and gaming. Bloomberg spoke to Sony directly to get this information so the source couldn't have been better. “Cameras revolutionized phones, and based on what I've seen, I have the same expectation for 3D [cameras],” said Satoshi Yoshihara, head of Sony's sensor division, when speaking with Bloomberg. © YouTube Bloomberg revealed Apple's plans for this new camera sensor and Sony subsequently confirmed the commercial availability of the lens. According to Yoshihara and Sony, both the front and rear-facing 3D cameras will be ready in 2019 and “kick off mass production in late summer to meet demand”. The 3D cameras will basically use “Time of Flight” technology that will send out invisible laser pulses and measure the time before it bounces back to build 3d models of objects up to five meters away.

  15. Apple will apparently start assembling its premium iPhones in India through a local plant of its manufacturer Foxconn. It's expected to commence from as early as 2019 and will be the first time for Apple to locally assemble the more expensive iPhones. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Apple has been assembling iPhones in India since 2017. However, it has remained exclusive to the iPhone 6S and SE. The move comes due to the Indian government putting a high tariff on imported smartphones which has resulted in Apple losing a huge chunk of the market share. This would drive the price of premium iPhones through the roof which has resulted in poor performance in the Indian market for the Cupertino giant. © Reuters According to Economic Times, Foxconn will be manufacturing new iPhones at the Sriperumbudur plant in Tamil Nadu. Foxconn already manufactures smartphones for Xiaomi in India and will invest 25 billion Indian rupees ($356 million) to expand the plant. This includes expansion into manufacturing of iPhones in India. Due to the new expansion, Apple will be able to curb prices of premium iPhones and will be able to compete better with companies like OnePlus and Samsung. This will result in reduced prices for the flagship iPhones and drive more sales for the company.

  19. Unless you are an 'everyday is an upper-body day' kind of a dude, you must be aware of the importance of squatting. It is one of the most fundamental exercises you can do for leg development. In this article, I will take you through the most common squatting mistakes or sins that I see people committing: 1. Not Bracing Your Core An average gym enthusiast who is about to squat, just walks up to the squat rack, un-racks the bar and starts doing the up and down motion with the weight on his back. He will always remain average and never realize his true strength and potential unless he braces his core, or in layman terms, keeps his belly tight and full of air. © Tnation Here`s how to do it: Take a deep breath and fill as much air as you can in your belly. This will require additional effort and skill if you have never done it before. Another tip is to tighten your belly just like someone is about to punch you there. Hold your breath during the whole downward phase of squat and release only when coming up or when at the top. This technique enables you to squat more weight, hence more muscle. This will also make you more stable during the movement. 2. Wrong Footwear If you want to learn the best way to do squats, learn from the way power-lifters or weightlifters do it. The use of appropriate footwear is of utmost importance while doing squats. You will never see a powerlifter or weightlifter squatting in running shoes. So why should you? The problem with the commonly used running shoes for squatting is that they don`t let you remain close to the ground due to excessive cushioning and interfere in the force transfer from ground to the body. They are fine when you are doing bodyweight or lightweight squats but not when attempting 1-5 rep max. © Thinkstock Images You have two options when it comes to optimal shoes for squatting. First is any kind of flat sole shoes or sneakers. Just make sure their bottom is hard enough. The second option would be to buy proper weightlifting shoes. Don't let the name make you think that these shoes are just for weightlifters. These shoes have a solid base and an elevated heel which makes them good for anyone who wants to be more stable during heavy squatting and helps to hit more depth. 3. Knee Sleeves To Cover Pain Let me tell you one thing. Knee sleeves are a great training accessory for someone who indulges in any sort of exercises that puts direct stress on knees such as squats and lunges. I am calling them great because neoprene sleeves available in the market keep your knees warm and compressed during squatting and help with better blood flow to the area. There`s no harm wearing them. © Thinkstock Images However, the problem arises when people start thinking of it as a training aid as a cure for knee pain. How many times have you seen people throwing unsolicited advice for wearing knee sleeves in case they have their knee troubling them? If you have knee pain due to weight training, then you need to check your stretching, foam rolling or technique and not try to self medicate via pain relief ointments, painkillers or any kind of knee sleeves or braces. You will be making the condition even worse by hiding and continuing to work out with it, without getting it cured. Adopt the above squatting guidelines and you will see improvements in your squat poundages pretty soon. Share this with someone who you feel should be squatting the right way.

  20. You don't have to be a collector to recognize the unmistakable click of a Zippo lighter. The unique sound is not just soothing to many but is also a click that nearly 4 out of 5 adults will instantly recognize anywhere across the world. These aren't just tall claims but are facts that are supported on relevant grounds. Established way back in 1932, the Zippo windproof lighter easily found its way into the popular culture references and won many hearts with its unique design and unwavering durability. Yup, the biggest keyword that defines this as a collector's prized possession is the fact that despite the improvements to the flint wheel and evolving designs over the years, Zippo remains true to its famous lifetime guarantee – "It works, or we fix it free.™" Coming back to the click of the century, the Zippo click sound has recently been trademark joining the ranks of other unique sounds that you'll instantly connect with. So what really makes the click so unique? The crisp click of a Zippo lighter opening and closing is a trigger to numerous emotional responses. Approximately 70% of people stated that the sound instils positive emotional benefits. Sound is having an impact more than ever on people's moods evident in the global phenomenon of ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) content. This is characterised by a static-like, tingling sensation that occurs due to a relaxing response to stimuli. ASMR triggers can range from whispering voices to the heightened audio of everyday sounds- with each trigger affecting the listener on a very individual level. This image of the inner workings of the Zippo lighter breaks down its anatomy revealing the small things that make the big difference. Made up of 9 essential raw materials, this collector's item clicks each of the products into motion resulting in the crisp click sound and the subsequent flame. Filling and Lighting the Zippo The Zippo windproof lighter is filled by removing the inside unit from the lighter case (9). Turn the inside unit over and lift the felt pad (8) to reveal the packing material in the fuel chamber (3). Hint: Use an unfolded paper clip or similar tool if the pad is hard to lift. With the felt pad out of the way, the fuel chamber is ready to be filled with lighter fuel, slowly saturating the wick (6) and the packing material (7) inside the fuel container. Once reassembled, the lighter is ready to use. A simple downward flick of the flint wheel (1) strikes it against the flint held in place by the flint spring (5), creating hot sparks that ignite the lighter fuel coating the wick (6). When opening the lighter, the distinctive Zippo click is created by the cam (2). The wick continues to draw lighter fuel from the packing material (7) in the fuel tank, and sends a continuous flow of fuel up the wick to keep the flame lit. This unwavering fuel flow, along with the perforated chimney design, helps the flame stay alight even in wind – an integral feature of the Zippo lighter's design since it first debuted in 1932. Finally, when the lighter lid is closed, the flame is immediately extinguished as it becomes deprived of the oxygen it needs to burn. If you are an aspiring collector of this nearly-a-century old masterpiece, make sure that you check the markings and manufacture date (this marking began in 1958) at the bottom to decode the lighter's age.
  21. Tired of failing the New Year's fitness resolutions? Getting average results even after following your fitness guru's training and nutrition advice? It all starts with this fitness discussion around the new year with friends and family that how we want to lose X amount of weight or gain X amount of weight or achieve some form of idealized physique. A goal is always set by everyone but we are unable to reach or surpass their fitness goals. Did You Ever Think Why? © Unsplash We set a goal instead of systems. When we set a goal, it's basically an emotional attachment without any concrete daily action plan while systems can help us design that daily action plan and instead of focusing on the result we put the effort in following the daily procedure required to achieve our fitness goal. Goal: I want to lose 3kg this month System: 1) Following Daily set calories + Amount of time set for physical activity Above is building a long-term process in a space where most of us are focussed on finding quick and short-cut solutions. Now that we have understood the concept of systems in general, let's talk about the steps we can take to create this sustainable fitness lifestyle and kickstart your fitness journey in 2019. 1) Take Baby Steps When you have decided to kickstart your fitness journey in 2019, you need to understand that the change you make has to be sustainable for it to have a long-term effect. Example: A completely inactive person, with unhealthy eating habits for the majority of his life, decides to start his fitness journey by directly jumping on an intense training program and changing his entire daily eating pattern in a short amount of time. While above seems like a very good start, it's probably going to go down the drain after few months of mental exhaustion or worst completely returning back to before. Start slowly, aim to increase your activity level more than previous and start replacing unhealthy food options for healthy one by one. Keep a track whether you are able to maintain the change and adapt to the small change you just made. If yes, increase it one level further and so on according to your schedule. 2) Track Your Exercise And Food © Unsplash When you begin tracking what you eat and how much do you exercise daily you will become more conscious of your actions for your fitness goals. Results should be measurable and so should your daily process to improvise and find the areas which are stopping you from achieving your fitness goals in 2019. Example- I eat healthily, I consume good food Optimal way: I eat 2500 calories and I exercise daily for 45 minutes and repeat this 4 times a week (more details, the better) 3) Seek Knowledge And Help If you are determined but you don't have a direction for achieving your fitness goals in 2019 you are going to go haywire and won't achieve your desired outcome. Best and fastest way to learn something is to pay someone and seek knowledge. Other methods include reading articles over here and follow up on researches. If you want to avoid all the above hassle and save your time, the first option is what you should go ahead with. 4) Environment Over Motivation © Unsplash Lot of times we indulge ourselves in watching motivational videos and motivational music, though science has clearly demonstrated the impact of music on training, the goal shouldn't be motivation but it should be self-motivation. The fire should come from within and for the fire to stay alive it requires you to surround yourself with people who support you and are also determined to achieve their fitness goals in 2019. You can't outgrow your environment. Your motivation to kickstart your fitness goal in 2019 will plummet down but if you have supportive people around and people who also want to become a better version of themselves, you will have a higher probability of doing the same and sustaining your fitness for a longer period. As a good measure always make friends with people who you see regularly in the gym and learn from them. 5) Mental Fitness Don't get caught up in the best method or the best diet plan just because you read it somewhere online. Always do what's the best for you. Do what allows you to follow your plan consistently and the one that keeps your mind happy. If the training or nutrition plan doesn't keep you happy you probably should drop it and try to hop on to some new gimmick again. Remember folks, fitness is not short term but the thing you want to keep up with for the longest period possible. Go achieve your fitness goals in 2019!

  22. There are no hard-gainers. There are only the under-eaters. If you want to see yourself grow, the most important thing to do is to EAT! Learn how to eat solid food and learn how to eat it very often. Only going to the gym and doing bro-splits wouldn't help. Get you training structured and follow these eating tips. 1. Not Eating High Calorie Foods Most people make this mistake of eating the same foods which they were eating in cutting (losing fat) and maintenance (staying at same weight) phase. This is not actually a problem per se, as you can always increase the quantity of same foods in bulking. However, your stomach has only limited capacity to fill itself with food and you are better off filling it with foods that provide higher nutritional value or calories. For example- Replacing 100gm of chicken breast (commonly eaten during cutting) with 100gm of whole chicken/thighs will give you more calories as it has good fats along with almost same amount of protein. Other examples are - replacing low fat milk with high one, adding virgin olive oil and chia seeds to salads. © Thinkstock Images 2. Eating Just About Anything If not eating high calorie/eating enough is a problem, then we have other category of people who will simply stuff their face with anything they see in the name of bulking. Remember guys, a calculated approach with eating good foods is required in bulking. This HARDLY should include fries, burgers or regular trips to Mc Donald's. For so many people, bulking becomes an excuse to let loose on all the foods which they already know are bad for them. 3. Worrying About Abs TOO MUCH I assume most of you reading this article are naturals (not using steroids). As a natural, you need to understand that you will lose some of your 'aesthetics'. Come to terms with the fact that you midsection will get soft for the time you feed to grow. Little bit of fat gain on belly area during bulking is almost inevitable if you are doing it naturally. So don't stop eating is a steady surplus if you lose definition around the abs. © Youtube 4. Focusing Way Too Much On Stupid Supplements And Other Small Things Best magic supplement for muscle gain, best protein powder with 0 carb, how to train upper chest, how to train lower abs and what not; these are just frills. Guys, these things hardly ever matter. Listen. It won't make any difference if your protein powder has 0gm or 4gm carbs, unless you are competing and please leave the muscle anatomy of upper chest or lower abs for advanced bodybuilders. You have limited energy and time, invest it where it matters the most- heavy compound lifts and eating right.

  23. 'Six-pack abs' are the so-called epitome of fitness. If you got them, you have made it. Well, that is the notion anyway these days that abs define fitness and people are ready to literally trade an arm and a leg put together just to get abs. Unfortunately, they will buy the most expensive fat burners and fat cutters to get there quick. They will do hundreds of ab crunches and dedicate entire training sessions just to train the abs. If your goal, too, is to get abs, then ensure that you do not end up making these same mistakes as others. Here is a list of what NOT to do: 1. Don't Just Do Bodyweight Work Your abs are like every other muscle and show a growth response to progressive overload. Doing bodyweight work is totally alright, but the catch here is it does not exclusively work after a point. That is because you become all the more efficient and fatigue resistant to it. Start including some weighted exercises using cables and machines and do them for sets of 8-12 reps. You can always include bodyweight work towards the end of it. © Pixabay 2. Do Not Keep Your Back Flat Though having a flat back while doing exercises like rows, deadlifts, squats and the like is a good habit, it can be counterproductive when training abs. When you contract the lower back to keep it straight, you cannot contract abs as well as they are a pair of antagonist muscles. By keeping a flat back, you prevent the abs from shortening. For your abs, you have to unlearn the otherwise healthy habit and curl your spine in a controlled manner during the shortening of the abs or doing the crunch and uncurling it when getting back to a neutral position. 3. Do Not Try To Finish Your Reps Quickly Quality over quantity! That is the rule for doing any exercise and performing reps. Do not target doing 100 or 200 or 300 reps in as little time as possible. Do not fly through that set of leg raises. For doing the reps as fast as possible, you need momentum, which often means that you are just moving and not training abs. Instead, do slow and controlled reps and make the reps count. 4. Do Not Activate Your Hip Flexors While Doing Leg Raises Hip flexors are the upper thigh muscles that attach to your pelvis whereas your abs just end above the pelvis. While doing leg raises, many people just end up training the hip flexors and not abs. How does this happen? When you start doing a leg raise, you will see that until a point your lower back remains straight. After a particular point (usually 60-degree flexion), your lower back starts curling. That is when your abs shorten and get involved. Many people do leg raises and only raise their legs to the point of hip flexion without even activating the abdominal muscles. Do not be that person. © Pixabay 5. Do Not Eat Away Your Progress You may have heard the saying that 'abs are made in the kitchen' and it is partly true. The reason I say partly true is that you also need to develop your abdominal muscles to have them in the first place. Along with developing the abdominals, you need to be at a lower body fat percentage to be able to see them. Usually around 10-12% body fat. So, you can do all the ab work in the gym and there is still a probability that you will not see them due to the body fat you are carrying. If you want those abs, eat accordingly.

  24. Remember the Oppo R9 that took the world by storm with its chic metallic red look? This was way back in 2016 when the 'selfie' trend was at its peak. The Oppo R9 was the key player in the selfie revolution with its selfie shooter that supported multiple levels for flashlight and not to forget, the brilliant Beautify 4.0 Mode. From what we remember, at that point, when every other brand was focussing on silver, gold and rose tones, this Chinese smartphone maker shifted its focus to a classic red hue at an affordable budget range. Fast forward to 2017, which marked the entry of the Oppo R11, a smartphone that pioneered the crescent curved design offered at a mid-range price structure. If you ask us, we remember this smartphone for all the right reasons - a spectacular 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED panel, a powerful AI-capable Snapdragon 660 chipset and dual rear cameras with 20MP and 16MP sensors. Speaking of Oppo's 2017 lineup, we cannot ignore the dynamic R15 that went two steps further to introduce the ruby red and cosmic purple gradient colours to spoil us with choices. What's more? Think AI Scene Recognition, Game Acceleration Mode and a Super Full Screen that only made this smartphone bigger and bolder. Glam part aside, Oppo has made a constant effort to up the performance game of the R Series in terms of hardware. In fact, the R15 Pro is the ultimate celebration of that notion with its latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processors, large storage, impressive battery life and a technology that has quite literally been a life saviour, the VOOC Flash Charging that ensures you can charge your phone in a flash and it will last throughout the day. In India though, the last R Series that graced the showrooms was the R7 (Lite and Plus) in 2015. Yes, it has been a while! What's the good news? Well, the R Series is now making a huge comeback to India with the R17 Pro and we cannot really keep our calm for the big reveal. Are you as excited as we are?
  25. Guys, we see what brings you here. The fact that you have your eyes glued to your mobile phone/laptop's screen (desperately searching for an answer) makes it obvious that you are a novice to the tempting but tricky world of relationships, and that you are miserable. We understand how you had to stay up all night, doing all that you could to get your lady love to respond to your bazillion texts, all the while trying to figure out where you went wrong. While it is a well-established fact that most women can be a little puzzling at times, most men can be incredibly childish (and innocent) in their actions as well, kindling unnecessary (and often avoidable) complications. As we are in complete solidarity with you, we have put together a list of the most common rookie mistakes men make in their relationships, mistakes you could easily avoid making by adhering to the following five tips. 1. Don't Run Away From Conversations © Instagram/Virat Kohli While keeping shut and not uttering a single word may appear to be an easy resort for winding up a tiff gone bad, more often than not, it ends up adding fuel to the flames. So, if your girlfriend is mad at you (even over the minutest of things), make sure you do not run away from a conversation. Instead, settle all your issues over a healthy and productive discussion, and a warm cup of coffee. 2. Stop Keeping A Scorecard, Your Relationship Is NOT A FIFA Match Keeping a scorecard is possibly the biggest mistake you could make in your relationship. After all, a constant pinpointing of who did what will only turn your relationship into a (lousy) game of FIFA, one where you will be too occupied keeping tabs, thereby missing out on all of the fun. So forgive and forget her blunders, don't attach needless expectations to the things you do for her, and start living your relationship the way you're supposed to - in the present. 3. Do Not Take Her For Granted And Start Appreciating Her More © Instagram/ Neha Dhupia Whether it's surprise gifts being delivered at her doorstep or taking her out on a romantic dinner, most men make all sorts of efforts to have a woman fall head-over-heels in love in them. But as soon as that happens, they start getting a bit laidback. While you may not be doing this on purpose, you must take notice of it and start taking the right steps to reverse it. So, surprise her with the best of things, as making a gesture to appreciate what all she's done (and continues to do) for you will only make her love you more.

Don't Make Comparisons, Especially With Your Exes There is a reason why your ex is, in fact, your EX, and so you must not draw any comparisons between her and your girlfriend. It is good that your ex never got mad at you for leaving the toilet seat up or lashed out at you for leaving a wet towel on the bed, but she can never match what your current girlfriend has to offer. After all, if your ex was all that great, why aren't you still with her? 5. Show Her That The Relationship Has Longevity First of all, it goes without saying that, if you are too afraid of being in a committed relationship, then you really shouldn't be in a relationship in the first place. We are not talking about wedding vows and baby names, but reminding your girl that the relationship is going somewhere will definitely make it more serious and meaningful, and will pacify any fears she might harbour about you not taking the relationship (or her) all that seriously.
