  1. Remember the time when aftershaves weren't popular yet, and your barber used to rub your face with a block of 'Fitkari' post a shave? Well, if you're too young and from a metro city, you'd probably not even know what 'Fitkari' or Alum is, and for good reason. Fitkari or Alum (also called potassium alum, potash alum, or potassium aluminium sulfate) is a colourless astringent compound which is a hydrated double sulphate of aluminium and potassium, used in solution in dyeing and tanning. It is easily available in the market, and here are 5 reasons why every man should keep some of it handy in his bathroom cabinet. 1. As An Aftershave Alum can be used after a shave instead of an aftershave lotion. It stops bleeding from minor cuts, and is a great skin healer. © Getty Images 2. As A Natural Toner And Skin Tightener Alum is an amazing toner, and also tightens the skin, giving it a natural glow. Especially for older people who suffer from sensitive skin, this can be a great alternative to regular products. © Instagram/Tigerjackieshroff 3. As A Cure For Mouth Ulcers Alum can be used to cure mouth ulcers and canker sores. All one needs to do is put some alum powder on top of the ulcer/sore, leave it on for about 30-40 seconds, and then wash it off. 4. For Bad Breath Add a pinch of alum powder along with a pinch of rock salt to a glass of warm water and use it as a mouthwash. It acts as a great natural alternative to a mouthwash. © Getty Images 5. To Get Rid Of Dark Circles A little bit of alum powder mixed with water, when applied on dark circles, will help you get rid of them. One product, so many benefits! The more you know, they said.
  2. We wreak havoc when our pizza is not delivered within 30 minutes. We make a gazillion calls to the delivery guy, just to check where he is when we get a message that "your food is arriving in 20 minutes." In short, we take our food delivery orders very seriously, more than anything else in life. Well, looks like so does Swiggy. Even if it means delivering food from Rajasthan to a man sitting in Bengaluru, in just 12 minutes. via GIPHY The legendary proof of the same was shared by Bhargav Rajan on Twitter. Bhargav ordered from a restaurant in Bengaluru, but Swiggy detected it as an order coming from a restaurant in Rajasthan. So what's next? In case you think the order was cancelled, you're wrong. The order was not only accepted, but it even showed that the food will be delivered in 12 minutes. Wow @swiggy_in what are you driving? pic.twitter.com/0MlL1cxbZ2 — Bhargav Rajan (@bhargavrajan) February 17, 2019 Seriously! What is the delivery guy driving to cover this ridiculous distance in 12 minutes? Bhargav shared the hilarious incident with the caption "Wow Swiggy, what are you driving?" What's more, the delivery guy was travelling from one state to another to deliver the food was for Rs. 138. People were left in splits after looking at the picture and started trolling Swiggy for their delivery service that is probably faster than Usain Bolt.

Thank you for bringing this to light for us Hyperion ð Bon appetite! — SwiggyCares (@SwiggyCares) February 17, 2019
  3. 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.
  4. While I agree that dating is hard in today's day and age, it's also necessary as a survival tool for the young generation today. That's because it's healthy and keeps the young people balanced and on their feet constantly. While dating has become the need of the hour, it's still circled as something only 'confident' men excel at. However, that's not entirely true. While you do need confidence to manoeuvre your dating game, you also need to be complete in order to look for another person. You can face nervousness while asking a girl out but what you need to remember is that the nervousness is just a solemn cover for making sure you don't ruin the game for yourself. In simpler words- it's okay to be nervous. © Twitter So, the next time you want to approach a girl and you think you lack the confidence to ask her out on a date, just remember these 3 simple things: (1) Let Her See You As The 'Nice Guy' Why don't we end the stereotype of 'nice guys finish last' once and for all? It's a give that women nowadays seek nice guys and not the usual chunk of 'bad boys' anymore. The sensitivity to be with someone who is kind and understanding is growing steadfastly and that's the side you need to show her. If you spot her at a bar or if she's someone you already know, it's time to show her your nice side. That doesn't mean put up a charade or show her a side where she ends up friend zoning you. It just means that you need to make her see you as someone she'd have difficulty finding, in today's and age. © Zee Studios Approach her with a conversation and find something of common interest to pick up on and start talking. Maybe have a deeper meaningful conversation and actually LISTEN to what she says. Not only will you come out as a good listener but also as a sensitive bloke. Just be the nice guy every woman wishes to find today. (2) Let Her See You As The Funny Guy Yes, agreed not everyone is funny but you can try appreciating good humour. I am not saying try your best to be humorous. Humour comes naturally, yes. But you can try and make her laugh the best to your ability. Humour always shows a very kind and soft side to someone. If you can muster up the courage to narrate a few jokes or make the conversation lighter with humour, you have her right then and there. If not, you can advocate some good humour and take her for some good comedy shows around town or a movie that's funny perhaps. Whatever you do, make sure you add the element of humour to it. © Pinterest (3) Let Her See You As The Chivalrous Guy They say chivalry is dead, but it shouldn't be. Chivalry is the mark of a man. If he's chivalrous, he's got it all. Chivalry includes everything- kindness, manners, etiquettes, compassion and being a gentleman. When we were growing up we often saw our fathers or men around show utmost chivalry. Be it opening doors or holding the chair back so a woman could sit. We don't see that anymore. Yes, women are capable of opening doors or paying the dinner bill but it's an aspect that gives women the additional strength and warmth they need, if and when a man is chivalrous. So, if you do go up to her, be your chivalrous best, to a point where if she sneezes, you hand her your handkerchief! Chivalry shouldn't die and if you gradually bring it back, you'll see the dating game change in your favour. © UTV motion picture So, if you have these three things sorted then you're good to go out and ask the girl you've been doting on, out. Just remember, pretence can only take you so far. So be your natural self and try and do your best. Your nervousness will fade away and you'll understand what women really want, clearly.
  5. With winter season all set to decamp (not for the GOT buffs though), it's about time that you shove those woolen blankets and garms into those packed-to-the-T bed boxes, and dig out your airy cotton articles. Whether you are a summer baby or not, the scorching heat is certain to make your hackles rise, at least once during the boiling months, and the situation gets even more exasperating when you are not equipped with the right kind of clothing. Given that, while there's no denying the fact that cotton makes for the most skin-friendly fabric during summers, one which allows your skin to breathe and stay at ease, it is also almost cardinal that you understand the distinction between the various types of cotton that are there in the market. While discerning the difference between the diverse varieties of cotton may be a potato-patato thing for the majority of men, it is essential that you have hold of it, so you do not end up draining your money down the sewer investing on the wrong type of fabric. So, to help you sail through, we give you a hang of the best type of cotton that is there, so you can have a hassle-free summer season! 1. Supima Cotton © March Tee The Tom Hanks of the textile industry, Supima or Pima cotton is inarguably one of the finest members of the cotton family, which has recently entered the scene to change your dressing game for the best. The top-notch quality of this fabric is owed to its extra long staple fibre, which ensures a softer and stronger finish, such which any man (rather, any mortal!) would love to own. The fabric crafted from Supima cotton is obscenely smooth on the skin and makes for a godsend when the fiery summers are upon us. So, whether you are scouring around to find the best t shirts for men, or any other piece of garm, it is imperative that you make sure that it features a Supima cotton make. 2. Egyption Cotton © Pixabay Another member from the extra-long staple fibre family, Egyptian cotton is well-known across the globe for its superior quality. The A-grade strength of the fibre makes this cotton more resistant to stress, which WE definitely are not (when's the weekend?). A little birdie told us that this type of cotton in particular is invariably handpicked, something which guarantees purity and also prevents the fibre from undergoing any mechanical stress. This in turn, keeps the fibre unharmed, and intact, which is further crafted into the highest quality fabric. Featuring an exceptional softness, this fabric makes for the best bet when you are looking for something supremely smooth to sheath your torso. 3. Sea Island Cotton © flickr If you are someone who is all about luxury clothing, and big brands, then you must have at least once glanced at the name “Sea Island Cotton” on one of those garment labels. Well-known for its nonpareil quality which emulates silk, the Sea island cotton is one of the most expensive type of cotton that is there in the market, one which is predominantly utilized by colossal brands. The fabric is exceptionally smooth on the skin, and the silky texture is owed to its ultra-smooth fibres. The ultra long staple fibre makes sure that the fabric is highly durable, and does not exhaust too soon. Although a tad bit hefty on the pocket, the Sea island cotton is the real deal. So the next time you plan on stock up on your collection of summer shirts, casual trousers or the best round neck t-shirts for men, investing in Sea Island cotton makes sense. 4. Upland Cotton © flickr Make way, for here's something from the American Land! The most extensively cultivated (and utilized) types in the family, Upland cotton or the American Upland cotton is the most economical varieties of cotton. This type of cotton, as the name suggests, is chiefly cultivated in the South and Southwest regions of America. While this cotton features a basic quality and durability, it works amazingly well when clubbed together with man-made fabrics, making for one of the most versatile variants. This type of cotton is used for fabricating a myriad of things ranging from t shirts to shorts, denim, and much more!
  6. Navigating relationships is easy or tough depending solely on whom you ask. Relationships are complicated and need two people to find their functional settings. Often in relationships, there are 'Red Flags' that we ignore due to some misplaced insecurity often resulting in people being falsely content in mediocre relationships. While accepting people and their flaws is generally a good thing, there are cases when it may be apt to cut ties and severe any prospects of a future together. © Reaiance Entertainment Here are a couple of red flags to look out for and generally how to keep an eye out for the future. Red Flags To Ignore This could be something quite pedantic like she doesn't like to drink too much, isn't a big fan of red meat, likes only strawberry ice cream, drinks tea not coffee etc. In any relationship, there must be a compromise, as these small quirks are mostly cute harmless inconsistencies from your own worldview and can be easily ignored for the rest of your days. If you can spend 90% of your time happy around this person, I'd say you're luckier than 50% of the world that gets divorced. Let the small things slide, in time you will learn to love them even. © Eros International Medium Or Average Red Flags The tough stuff now: Your partner may not be into the same shows or movies etc. This may not be so bad but could get annoying in the long run. As long as both people in the relationship are open to discussion and new experiences – media consumption shouldn't be that big a factor. However, if the majority of your conversations are mitigated only by the sound of silence - that type of stuff is what can be considered a pretty big red flag. Consequently, if someone is TOO into you, it could also mean a possible alert. It's not bad to have someone put you on a pedestal but then the expectations also rise proportionately. A lot of this is also down to your own ego and ability to communicate effectively. Still always best to know what you want, before hurting someone else. © Viacom 18 Motion Pictures Major Red Flags The final one: The thing about red flags is that they often appear in other parts of our lives and we mistakenly miss the ones we ought not to have. If they're abusive (verbal or otherwise) or if they're mean to the service staff. Generally speaking, if they're mean to everyone below their own station in life, it may not take very long for you to be treated in a similar vein as well. © Eros International If they're too secretive about their dealings, or their past, but constantly on their phone. Having a disingenuous partner can only cause grief and turmoil in the long run. If they have no other hobbies and interests, if they want to go out and socialize constantly, if they lack any semblance of ambition and only want constant satiation in some form – I would consider such behaviour possible major red flags. Yes, granted that a lot of this is stuff is down to personal preference and choice but the point is - in a relationship we should all aspire to be akin to partners, not hostages. © Fox Star Studios Many of us ignore many such red flags and signs that our friends and loved ones try to point out about a current flame. Sometimes jumping from one relationship and partner to the next may not be the thing to do. Don't be petty and only look for someone's flaws but it is important to recognise these said flaws and acknowledge their effect on your time together. Mostly, people just want to love and be loved. This, however, can be done without compromise and coercion. We give in to the pressures of family, society and partners knowing full well it's not what we want. Thus it is important to figure out how much space, how much energy and time we can devote to our relationships. Sometimes, you might be the red flag yourself. In any case, it's not something to lose sleep over. Acknowledging your own behaviour and patterns might be the first step to being a well-rounded person and a key to havingbetter relationships.
  7. Treading his way to becoming one of the finest footballers of the current generation, France's Kylian Mbappe is shutting down all those who doubted Paris Saint-Germain's ability to play without their leader Neymar Jr., who is out due to a fractured metatarsal and Forward Edinson Cavani, who was ruled unfit to play with a thigh injury earlier in the week. In what was presumed to be a complete massacre of the visiting PSG against a rejuvenated Manchester United, the 20-year-old Frenchman led a team surrounded by scare stories of the season already coming to an end for them. But despite playing on their home ground, it felt as if the Red Devils founds themselves on foreign territory as PSG charged at them with all their might from the start. Dominating the possession of the ball for over 56% of game-time, the Saint-Germain attack slammed United goalkeeper David de Gea with five shots on target. Despite trying his best to keep ManU in the contest, de Gea was unable to prevent the two second-half goals from happening. While Presnel Kimpembe scored on a brilliant volley on the precise corner from Angel Di Maria in the 53rd minute, it was Kylian Mbappe's superhuman sprint before a top-notch finish on a Di Maria assist for the second goal that drew people's attention. Known to have a top-speed of 44.7 kmph (which was recorded during the match between PSG and Lille OSC, Mbappe zoomed past United defenders Eric Bertrand Bailly and Victor Lindelöf and covered a little over 37 yards in less than four seconds for the finish. Mbappe with his pace nets another goal for the French side. pic.twitter.com/Z1mkU12s56 — BOLUð (@beespeakz) February 12, 2019 This was the 20-year-old's 14th Champions League goal in 24 appearances, which led to the French Forward matching the legendary Ronaldo's record which he attained after playing as many as 40 games. Twitter instantly showed love towards Mbappe's quickness and the memes began to roll in: #MUNPSG Mbappe is damn fast. Mans can steal your girl, and dump her without you realising. pic.twitter.com/9I02y4U4lo — Mutebi ðªð¾ Alexð¥Katoð (@mutebilx_qato) February 12, 2019 #Mbappe went #SuperSaiyan on #ManU!#PSGMU pic.twitter.com/EUBOuk0vjZ — Aditya Pandey (@adityapandey148) February 13, 2019 “Mbappe's too fast i can't handle him” pic.twitter.com/gQGUFl8xkm — hayato akaba (@abmasayrag) February 13, 2019 Mbappe is too fast for anyone to catch him.#Flash #PSG pic.twitter.com/ia1gNCswLu — Gohar Shah (@GoharSh34542679) February 13, 2019 Mbappe is too fast for the United defence pic.twitter.com/Q3PQYpSFSB — ð BongZ DA KinG ð (@Bongani803) February 12, 2019 Mbappe is Olympic level fast. #MANPSG #Mbappé #rapid pic.twitter.com/FU9MNcDq1N — Lady Carrington (@CarrieGagen) February 12, 2019 United defenders to Mbappé: “Hey, no fair, you got fast legs.

  8. Football, as a game, has seen many players win matches single-handedly. The top two players in the world, none other than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have done just that thousands of times. But with their days on top of the world now numbered, who could be the one to replace them? The young star who's been the most talked about in terms of replacing either of the two stars, is not interested in taking their place right now, instead, he wants to make a name for himself and head to the top. Already winning the World Cup as a teenager, the young prodigy, Kylian Mbappe has had a great impact in the football world. The Frenchman has also achieved a bunch of the other most prestigious awards in the footballing world till date. Be it the FIFA Young Player of the Year trophy or the 2018 French Footballer of the Year accolade, Mbappe's resume looks rather impressive for his age. © Reuters But another big test awaits the 20-year-old as his club, Paris Saint-Germain takes on a resurgent Manchester United, in their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 fixture on Tuesday night. Ahead of the match the complete forward line up of PSG, barring Mbappe, has been ruled out for both the legs due to injuries. While Neymar was already suffering from a broken metatarsal, the match against Bordeaux last weekend sent Edinson Cavani, to the treatment room, pushing Thomas Tuchel (PSG Manager) in a tight corner before the Man Utd clash. © Reuters In this crisis, PSG fans expect the young marvel Mbappe to raise his hand and take the burden on himself. Tuchel, in a recent interview, clarified his position regarding Mbappe's leadership in a pre-match press conference as he said: “We can't just place all of the burden and pressure on him, Kylian has his own qualities, it is not really his job to replace Cavani and Neymar. He can't do all three things at the same time. He can't be himself and do the other two. He has to be free to play his game, to play with confidence.” "I want us to be capable to help him to find the right support. Provide him with good passes and in my opinion, he needs to play with a good mindset. He needs to be positive and realise that it is part of his development. It is the kind of moments you really are able to develop as a player," he added. © Reuters The absence of the bigger names could somewhere force Tuchel to change the formation from 4-3-3 to 4-2-3-1, in which he could play Mbappe in the front with Angel Di Maria and Dani Alves on left attacking midfielder and right attacking Midfielder respectively. With Alves and Thilo Kehrer being the two right backs, he can surely push Alves in Mbappe's support. With Draxler in the middle and Di Maria and Alves on either side, it could definitely prove to be of some help for the centre-forward star. With that said, Mbappe has never really been in this sort of a situation earlier, especially in a game of this magnitude. Even with the national team, the depth of talent in the French squad has also ensured a solid company for the young forward. © Reuters When the draw for the last 16 was made, PSG was widely viewed as the favourites to progress with United labouring in the Premier League under Jose Mourinho. However, the caretaker boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer whipped his magic wand and transformed the fortunes at Old Trafford for the better. They have been undefeated for 11 consecutive matches since the Norwegian's arrival. Former Premier League star Charlie Nicholas predicts a 2-2 draw tonight. “When this draw came out, I gave Manchester United no hope - but now, under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, I think it could go either way.” Nicholas expressed to SkyBet. “The absences of Neymar and Edinson Cavani are a huge blow for PSG and a boost for United. Cavani would have caused them a ton of problems.” Another football Pundit, Steve Nicol favours Manchester United for winning the game 2-1 in his recent interview to ESPN. So we definitely know in which directions the odds are headed. © Reuters Despite all the drama in the buildup, what is certain is that we can hope for an action-packed 90 minutes tonight. All eyes will be on Mbappe, and for inspiration, he has to look only as far as the interim manager in the other dugout.
  9. It's pretty fascinating to imagine what goes inside the mind of a person who can possibly think of killing off a person, for the sake of cheap fake news thrills. Under what circumstances does a man take the decision to declare someone deceased without any proof or evidence, no one knows. Is the materialistic desire of becoming 'internet-famous' so powerful that it triumphs the caring and loving nature of a human being? It seems as if the answer to that question is a very strong but sad 'yes'. In another classic occurrence of fake news creating social media buzz, Indian cricketer Suresh Raina mysteriously found himself surrounded by his fans mourning over his apparent death in a car crash last week. Numerous videos have surfaced on YouTube over the past couple of days claiming that the Chennai Super Kings batsman met with an unfortunate car accident and eventually succumbed to his injuries last week. One of these 'YouTubers' even narrated the entire story of how Suresh Raina was involved in a horrific accident while he was on his way back home after the New Zealand T20I match. The fact that this man didn't even take the pains to check if Raina was on the roster that played against the Kiwis (which he wasn't), makes this a lot more annoying. Unable to handle the situation under the radar, the cricketer had no option but to make an official statement on Twitter, assuring his good health to his fans and all those who were fretting over the false news. Past few days there has been fake news of me being hurt in a car accident.The hoax has my family & friends deeply disturbed. Please ignore any such news; with god's grace I'm doing absolutely fine.Those @youtube channels have been reported & hope strict actions will be taken soon — Suresh Rainað®ð³ (@ImRaina) February 11, 2019 “Past few days there has been fake news of me being hurt in a car accident. The hoax has my family & friends deeply disturbed. Please ignore any such news; with God's grace I'm doing absolutely fine,” tweeted the annoyed athlete. The trend of making sensitive and sensational news out of thin air has led to some of the biggest names of our country such as Paresh Rawal into believing absolutely bizarre conspiracies in the past, and now has engulfed Suresh Raina into its dark abyss as well. When will this end? We have absolutely no idea.
  10. In the Premier League title race this season, Manchester City have found a potent challenger in Liverpool who are giving the defending champions a run for their money. Such has been the level of competition between the two Premier League giants that it has made the ongoing season an absolute cracker for the fans. With the tournament nearing a befitting finale, there is no margin for error for City and Liverpool as they chase the top honours. Thus, when the Pep Guardiola side squared off against Chelsea over the weekend, all eyes were on City to keep their title dreams alive. For a team that found themselves chasing Liverpool following their shock loss to Newcastle United earlier, City showed no signs of panic or lacklustre play during their rampaging 6-0 triumph against the Blues at the Etihad. While Sergio Aguero bagged yet another hat-trick of goals, Raheem Sterling scored a brace alongside Illkay Gundogan's strike to cut a sorry figure for Maurizio Sarri's side. © Reuters The Blues conceded four goals in the first 25 minutes and eventually gave away two more by the final whistle to register their worst result since 7-0 drubbing to Nottingham Forest in 1991. It was also their third straight defeat in an away game which further irked the Chelsea faithful. The result undeniably left the visitors red-faced and the travelling fans were clearly not impressed. Owing to their dismal outing, Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger approached the stands where the away fans were seated and apologised for their poor show. But, one fan wasn't ready to accept Rudiger's apology. Rudiger staying to apologise to Chelsea fans. At least he cares pic.twitter.com/lmLyEprK1c — Lewis (@CarefreeLewisG) February 10, 2019 Responding to Rudiger's apology, the fan gave a mouthful to the Chelsea defender over their dreadful performance. In reply, Rudiger reportedly yelled back at the fan before exchanging heated comments with him. According to Football.London, Rudiger said: "I've come over to say sorry, stand in front of me if you've something to say". The former Roma defender climbed over the top of the barricade to speak to the fan. He then, asked the steward if he could cross the barricade to go and talk to the fan in person, though he was not allowed to do so. Later, the footballer gave his shirt to a young fan before joining back his teammates on the ground as the majority of the fans gave him applause. Following their loss, Chelsea now find themselves languishing at the sixth spot in the table. With the Champions League qualification on the line, their current position in the league has surely got their fans worried. But, the biggest problem at hand appears to be their manager Sarri who is expected to have a crucial conversation with the club's owner Roman Abramovich to discuss his future.
  11. All grooming products come with an expiry date which means you'll have to dump them at some point. With weather conditions like that of India's, it's likely that the expensive products you buy will get spoiled well before their expiry date. That's the worst scenario you could imagine, however, there is a preventive measure that you can take from stopping your grooming products from spoiling like storing them in the fridge. Besides lasting longer, they will even feel better on your skin. Here are four products that you should be storing in the fridge: 1. Fumes © idiva Without a doubt, you should be storing your fumes inside of the fridge. The heat and humidity degrade the quality of the fume. 2. Eye Cream © innisfree green tea seed eye cream Firstly, if you don't have an eye cream, get one. Especially if you don't want racoon eyes for the rest of your life. Secondly, put that in the fridge. Besides, a chilled out eye cream works better in soothing and de-bloating your blood vessels under the eye. 3. Beard Oil © prospector They tend to become a little runny in the Summer heat. Shove them in the fridge for uniform consistency. Also, the emollients degrade when they come in contact with the UV rays. 4. Toner/Moisturizer © Dove Again, just for the immediate benefit of how it would feel on your skin in its chilled glory. But in case you're using organic products, they anyway shouldn't be outside.
  12. Monogamy, Polygamy and the rest. These are not math books but rather the nature and definition of modern relationships. Do not fret, if you have been out of this scene for a bit, we will help you get back on the horse. First, let's look at the reason people stop trusting relationships and the people in them. © Pinterest There are a plethora of reasons you may have chosen to remain single. The usual reasons are relationship drama, a bad break-up, divorce, someone cheating on you or some form of personal antisocial behaviour that has resulted in a tendency to stay away from the dating scene. ' If you, like many others, are also looking to get back in the game after being alone for some time, here are a few tips that can help you find your groove back: Send Memes Memes and online content sharing is now almost akin to social currency. Using platforms like Instagram regularly to find funny, romantic and entertaining content eases the tension of constant conversation. In the initial phases of any courtship, these provide a buffer when you're chatting on the gram but don't really have too much to say. © Pinterest Use Dating Apps Download a dating app and start there. The easiest thing about the new age of dating is, you know what they like (from their bio) and you know they like you! Build on that. Simple. The other major benefit of dating apps is that there is no dearth of possible matches. You may have to spend some money on their premium services but I bet most men would pay such nominal amounts if it increases their chances of meeting someone. © Pinterest Join A Fitness Class This point tends to show up in a lot of lists, simply because the value of confidence can never be overstated. Whether you are an intellectual, a scholar or a regular guy. Not exercising will tend to result in bad posture, poor cardio and less musculature i.e. leaving you with nothing that would impress a woman at first glance. Plus caring about your health is cool. The gym/class is also a great spot for meeting new people. © Twitter Plenty Of Fish There are literally 7.2 billion people on earth. Depending on your sexual preference there are about 3.6 billion possibilities. Go out of your comfort zone and flirt with people. Be nice, charming and approachable. Casting a wide net, keep the trophies and dump the rest back in the ocean. © Twitter Be Clear About Your Intentions I personally could tell you that 75% of the women I have ever met in my life have been cheated on/lied to by their men. 75% is also me being modest. Myself included. I have certainly lied to past lovers. Having had that done to me made me realize the importance of honesty. Most women deal with shitty boyfriends, husbands and exes. The common thread amongst all this is that guys tend to be less upfront with their intentions EARLY ON. Women respond to men who are confident and honest about their intentions. © Twitter To recap, dating is a numbers game. It is also kind of like hunting. Ever seen a tiger or a lion run frantically after ALL the buffaloes? No. Not really. They wait, they plan, then pounce. Dating is similar, identify your amoré and do what you can to win her over. If in case she does not wish to, and/or is playing too hard to get, move on. Life is short and no one is worth jumping through so many hoops for.
  13. Stupid and smart, at its extremes, are the two things that co-exist on the gym floor. There will be a guy who understands strength progression and would be tracking his training, whereas the other would be stacking plates on the bar for a squat PR, where the maximum movement he will achieve is his knee moving a bit. Funnily enough, the latter guys would happily post their videos on social media with the #neweeeknewpr (LOL). Keeping such guys in mind, here are a few things you shouldn't be proud of doing at the gym: 1. Leg Press PRs © YouTube Set 1 - 2 plates each side Set 2 - Add 3 more plates Set 3 - Add 2 guys Set 4 - Just hope you don't land at the hospital Leg press is the most common exercise that gives people a false sense of strength. Mainly because they hardly have any range of motion there. Annoyingly, some trainers promote this nonsense even when they know their clients cannot handle much weight. I've written a piece on it here 2. Ab Punches © Tnation I thought this stupidity had worn off until I saw it again recently. A guy doing hanging leg raises and his gym partner punching him when his legs came down! When doing leg raises, you're working on the function of spinal flexion. Punching is plain stupid. It doesn't make any sense. Oh, but what it does is increase your chances of injury. 3. Training Away To Failure © Thinkstock Images There is consistent data that shows that regular training to failure leads to: a. Impaired recovery b. Higher risk of injury c. Lesser gains d. Lesser adaptations to training Still, you will see bros shouting 'lightweight baby' and taking every set to failure. *facepalm* 4. Being Sore After Every Workout © Pixabay This is the USP that bro-splits have. Bro-split - 1 body part a day training. Guys who train this way will do 10 exercises for a body part and be sore to even move that body part for a week. How does that training make sense? The one that makes you feel disabled? And yes, there is data that shows that even when the number of sets and reps are equated, exercising the body part 2x a week results in greater strength and hypertrophy. 5. Running Like A Maniac On The Treadmill © YouTube If your goal is to build an impressive physique, weight training has to be your bread and butter. Not cardio. Then there are those who will run marathon distances on the treadmill. By doing this, you're just hurting your joints that will impact both your gains and health long term. Enjoy running? Do it outdoors. And yes, you should not only stop being proud of these 5 ridiculous things, but try and stop doing them completely.

  14. If you're a sucker for love and belong to the millennial generation, then I suppose you will connect with the newly established Jodi-Nick & Priyanka, or as they're popularly known, 'Nickyanka'. PeeCee is back in action on the big screen soon enough after her two-month long hiatus from the entertainment industry, where she took time away to celebrate her wedding shenanigans along with going for her honeymoon. © Instagram But little did we know the Desi girl and the vilaayati munda actually first spoke to each other on Twitter! Yes, a little piece of information that PeeCee revealed in a short teaser of the Ellen Show, where Priyanka will be appearing in the next episode, talking about her and Nick with Ellen DeGeneres. © Instagram Priyanka is seen talking about how Nick and her met and how he slid into her DMs on Twitter and told her that his friends think it's a good idea for the two of them to meet! Well, if this isn't giving hope to the men who slide into women's DMs to start a conversation, then I really don't know what is! © Twitter “He DMed me actually. So millennial of us! He DMed me on Twitter saying 'I've heard we should connect and uh... I've heard from common friends that we should meet. What do you think about that? I was like, 'just text me" Priyanka tells Ellen. Tomorrow, @PriyankaChopra tells me how her husband @NickJonas slid into her DMs. A post shared by Ellen (@theellenshow) on Jan 29, 2019 at 9:10pm PST I mean it isn't surprising that a man is slipping into a woman's DMs and sending her messages that are flirtatious in nature, but what caught my attention was that even celebrities enjoy doing it, from time to time. After all, slipping into DMs is the new millennial mantra, isn't it? Maybe if Nick had said something offensive to her or showed her lewd pictures of himself, she wouldn't have really entertained him but he actually said something honest and sweet and voila, he had the girl. © Instagram So, basically, what my point is that, now that you've seen the success rate of a DM through a celebrity wedding, maybe up your DM game a bit and don't be rowdy, aggressive or shamefully lewd when you do decide to slide into a girl's DM. Here are three things to keep in mind if you're going to message a girl on a social media platform: (1) No Lewd Content This should go without saying, I suppose. Girls do not like receiving dick pictures. Period. Neither do they want to see your face or any other body part. It's 2019 and you could get into a lot of trouble. So maybe keep it simple? © Getty images (2) Stop With The Pick-Up-Lines Pick-up lines are actually passé. They were perfect in the 90s and a girl in 2019 wouldn't want to entertain them anymore. Maybe a genuine message about your intention with the girl would work perfectly well? Ps: women make fun of guys who use trashy pick-up-lines, with their other women friends. © Getty images (3) No One Cares About A 'Hey' Anymore Just like how Nick put himself out there and made a bold statement about his intentions with Priyanka, maybe you can do the same? Just don't force your intentions or your opinions on her, is all. If you like her and want to take her out on a date, then by all means, make that clear. If you're just stalking her and say a random 'hey' once in a while, you're getting no attention, whatsoever! © Getty images So yes, not every couple can be Nickyanka, but you can find a middle ground and look for your desi girl with some blatant courage and decency. Meanwhile, PeeCee and Nick are still going strong with their family functions in the States and we're hoping to see Priyanka in Shonali Bose's 'The Sky Is Pink', co-starring Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim, rather soon.
  15. A well-shaved face is the mark of a true gentleman. Shaving is an art in itself, we believe, and if you do it right, there's nothing classier than a clean shaved man. But every art-form has its struggles, and shaving comes with its own set of problems too. Improper shaving can cause a lot of issues, the most annoying being razor burns. © livestrong Razor burns not only look bad but their counterpart, the razor bumps that follow, itch like crazy and leave a trail of redness. But there's nothing some extra care and proper shaving technique can't battle. Follow these golden rules of shaving to bid adieu to those nasty razor burns: 1. Prep Your Skin © Dherbs To get a good shave, the best time to do it is after a hot shower. The steam softens your skin and facial hair. Steam also opens up pores in your skin which help in reducing ingrown hair, which cause razor-burns. Using a conditioner on your facial hair helps soften it even more, making way for smooth AF skin post shaving. Also, exfoliation is necessary so that you have a clean, smooth surface to work with. It also helps get rid of teeny-tiny hair that clogs the pores and results in razor-burns. 2. Shave Along The Direction Of Hair-Growth © mandatory Most men usually shave against the direction of hair-growth. You get a close shave indeed, but you also risk cutting up your face and causing razor burn. Shaving with the grain will reduce the chances of irritation and won't cause razor bumps and ingrown hair. Don't forget to lather up your shaving cream well. A simple step that'll just take just five extra minutes, can do wonders for your shaving routine. 3. Clean Your Razor Blade With Alcohol © asuperiorshave Razor burn and skin irritation, result from bacteria on your shaving blade. Wipe down your razor blade using some rubbing alcohol pre-shaving. Commonly available at several drugstores, rubbing alcohol is the important hygiene step your shaving routine lacks in. Bonus advice, if you didn't know already, cleaning your blade after every stroke is super important as it helps to make a clean cut and prevents chafing. 4. Towel Dry Shaving Brush & Razor Post-Shave © livestrong Dry off your razor blade with a clean towel. This way, your blades won't go dull super quick and will last longer. Wet shaving brushes can house bacteria, which will end up on your face and cause acne, irritation and razor bumps. Clean your brushes well and hang them to air-dry every time you shave. 5. Apply A Shaving Balm Or Moisturizer © netpics You might have used an aftershave all your life, but it does not provide your skin with the moisture it needs. Aftershaves can actually add to the irritation your skin is facing for a few of you out there. Shaving dries out your skin, and what you need is a shaving balm or an aloe vera-based cream/gel. It'll help reduce the redness and help your skin retain its moisture. Voila! Keep these golden rules in mind the next time you shave to achieve that buttery smooth skin texture that women love.
  16. If you're looking for someone to date or fall in love with in 2019, your timing couldn't be perfect. I don't just mean that because it's a brand new year and it's still the beginning, but because 2019 is a marvellous year of revelations and strengthening certain aspects about how you react to things around you. Just like how everything happens with an evolutionary spin, dating too takes that curve every once a while and permits us to seek new rules every time we want to start exploring the world with someone. Apart from the rules you need to stick to, for dating in different cities, there are something's which are stagnant and unanimous, in terms of qualifying as the 'deal breaker'. And for a man, in 2019 particularly, it's his tryst with honesty. © Eros International Even with a heavy spin off on finding the 'perfect match' at a brink of a second, we're still looking for folds of realism in people we ardently want to be with and if things aren't real, it's difficult to define what the intent actually is. The crux of everything a man is today or what he should be doing, is all matched up to how honest he is as a human being and if he's indeed as honest as he should be, greater good does come his way. In relationships though, which are certainly not archaic anymore, honesty has become a trivial concept and it certainly shouldn't be one. Because people are dishonest they move away and start swiping again but if you're honest to one another, you're amorous, even though you want to head in different directions eventually. So here are 4 pertinent things every man should definitely be honest about, if he's looking to date in 2019: (1) What You Really Want From Her The new year brings a new age, or that's the easiest assumption I summon. No, really, can we go a little old school here? Remember a time when there were no dating apps or much of social media influencing our decisions? We would take time to wonder and think what we really want out of a dynamic? Yes, let's bring that back. Be open about what you really want because honestly, women are done with men playing games or giving them the chase. If you want an open relationship, be vocal about it, if you want to be in a relationship, there's no harm sharing that, if you just want something casual, let it out, but there isn't any point of being dishonest about your intent, because when she finds out you're dishonest, you'll just be a man who lies and gets away with it! © Fox Star Studios (2) Are You Commitment Phobic? A commitment phobic person could break at any point in time. If you're not ready for a commitment, don't dazzle her with your charm and leave her to figure the rest. Let her know that commitment scares you and even if you really want to be with her and the big 'C' gets in the way, ask her to help you out with it. Maybe she can help you take it slow, maybe she can opt for something casual with you. Who knows? and you won't know either unless you voice out your very obvious concern. Don't let her find out through some 10,000 alarming signals you let off, during the day. © Fox Star Studios (3) That Sexism Scares You, Not Feminism Yup, as text-bookish as I may sound right about now, it's actually true. Be wary, you're always judged for that and that's not because women want to judge you till you evaporate, it's because equality is very important for them and if you're on the same wavelength, hallelujah! Women have found a voice in 2019, well they had one way before too, maybe you just weren't listening. But now, if you hear, they're saying it's okay to understand what they really need and want from a man, which doesn't reek of sexist behaviour and aligns with some feminist ideology. It certainly doesn't mean you have to embrace everything in the name of feminism, it just means you have to start being equals. Chivalry is great but maybe go dutch on the bill? Let her drive you for a change or even pull a chair back for you? © Eros International (4) Be Honest About Your Long-Term Goals You can slip it into a conversation or just have a long conversation and disclose all you want to about what you're looking at, in 2019. You could be looking at getting married or maybe just being with someone, whatever it is, being honest about it, rather than shying away from it is way easier and classier, might I add. © Yash Raj Films You could add-on more honest things to be honest about other than these 4 pointers and make a classic example of how you've understood what I am trying to say, or you can just press the little obnoxious cross on the top-right corner of your window and close this article, but let me tell you this- Who doesn't love an honest man? He can live a tough life but he'd never be forgotten and that's how important a role honesty really plays, in society and of course in 2019, today.
  17. This weekend is fully packed with drama biopics on two of India's very powerful figures. Bal Thackeray and Rani of Jhansi, who changed the face of India's history in their own ways. So today has become extra special when Bollywood biopics of these two personalities have hit the theatres across the country. 'Thackeray' and 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi' released earlier today, and people have been queuing up outside movie halls, to watch both the films with equal enthusiasm. Though the tizzy surrounding 'Thackeray' in Mumbai cannot be replicated elsewhere, yet movie-goers from around the country have some real good things to say about the film, and especially Nawazuddin Siddiqui's performance in the film! View this post on Instagram His story is the History of Maharashtra!ð© @rauters_entertainment #ComingSoon #StayTuned #23rdJan2019 #RautersEntertainment #ThackeraytheFilm #HinduHridaySamra #TigerofMaharashtra A post shared by Thackeray The Film (@thackeraythefilm) on Aug 5, 2018 at 10:34am PDT Nawazuddin Siddiqui is essaying the titular role in the bilingual film that has been directed by Abhijit Panse, and is based on the life and times of Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray. The film also stars Amrita Rao in a pivotal role of Meena Tai Thackeray, opposite Nawazuddin. The film fraternity can't stop praising the movie and Siddiqui's performance, as they took to Twitter to gush about the movie. Can @Nawazuddin_S not do anything?

So as per the initial verdict on Twitter, the audience has declared that the movie has proven to be a gripping tale about the Shiv Sena chief, though it is Nawazuddin's marvellous performance that has brought Thackeray alive on screen. A movie-goer even went on to claim that if acting was a religion, Nawazuddin was god. That's a huge thing to say, isn't it? Here's what others have to say about the film. #Thackeray REVIEW: 1. #NawazuddinSiddiqui shines in this one. You will like the movie mostly because of him. 2.

  18. When it comes to fashion, accessories are as essential as clothing. A good-looking bag can make your casual outfits also look super stylish. As men's fashion evolves constantly, there are a few styles of bags that are here to stay. Bags aren't overlooked and labeled as a women's accessory anymore. More and more bag styles emerge for men's functional and fashion needs. Here are 5 types of bags you need to build a contemporary yet practical wardrobe: 1. Backpack © Viral Bhayani A backpack is the most versatile bag a man can possibly own. It comes in super handy and its multipurpose use is perfect for men on the go. A leather backpack for business casual or office look, a sporty backpack for the gym or for an everyday commuter and a rugged one for traveling, there's a kind of backpack for everyone and everything. What to look for: For office bags, look for an internal laptop sleeve and an extra padding to keep things secure. Gym bags need to have extra compartments and if you're planning on riding a bike wearing one, then watch out for reflective panels. 2. Briefcase © stylebistro A stereotypical image of a man wearing a crisp suit with a hat and a briefcase has been etched in our memory from watching multiple James Bond films. Investing in a good leather briefcase to go with your well tailored suit for business meetings and trips shouldn't disappoint you. What to look for: Look for enough compartments for your essentials, paperwork, laptop and hard drive and you should be good to go. 3. Laptop bag © Pinterest A laptop is always the most expensive item we carry around with us everyday. Our dearest gadget needs the utmost care and the right bed to be tucked in while you commute. A smart laptop bag is not only feasible but can add a whole other dimension to your look as well. What to look for: First of all, get a bag that is constructed to carry the dimensions of your laptop. Secondly, zip compartments for charger, cash and other items come in handy. Look for padded shoulder straps for extra comfort. 4. Messenger bag © Zimbio These babies were actually used back in the day to transport mail and now they are a staple fashion accessory. Today, designers have evolved the look of the messenger bag to suit the needs of the modern back and look super cool. These can come handy to store files, books and other items and what's best? You can go hands-free. What to look for: Go for a leather or mesh messenger bag as per your requirement. You could choose between zip , open pocket and other closures. Adjustable straps and buckled fasteners are also an important aspect you can look out for. 5. Weekender bag © Purseblog These bags are your solution for a short getaway where carrying a luggage could be a hassle. They provide ample space for enough essentials for a couple of days and can also be used as a hand-luggage for flights. The one large compartment provides maximum storage space for all your stuff. It's regular use variant, the duffle bag can also be used to carry gym or sports gear. What to look for: If you intend to use it for hand luggage only, check the dimensions before buying a bag so it fits in the airplane's inbuilt compartment. Choose a leather one for a business or leisure trip and a canvas version if you're going camping or hiking as it can handle more wear and tear. Well, now you know how to at least have a rotation of bags if not build an entire new wardrobe dedicated to them. Cheers!
  19. While most of us claim that our childhood was the best phase of our lives, the same could not be said for Mihir Kapse. For Mihir, his childhood came laced with questioning stares and a constant fight to seek acceptance. Not much of a childhood memory we would want to hold on to, right? Mihir was barely 10-years-old when his family discovered that he was suffering from a learning disability, which was later diagnosed as dyslexia after some tests were carried out. While carrying on with regular schooling slowly began to turn into a problem, Mihir was not quick to give up. © The Indian Express Even as a kid, Mihir relished his own company, and found solace in reading and playing games. Yet, regardless of the discrimination that he faced in school, Mihir managed to complete his schooling till class 10th. However, as time would soon reveal, dyslexia wasn't to be the only medical diagnosis that was to come his way. Mihir was pursuing his engineering degree from College of Engineering, Pune when a sudden neurological attack revealed that it wasn't dyslexia but autism that Mihir was suffering from. Talking about that fateful incident of his life, Mihir told Career360 that, “It took me two years to recover from that attack because the first autistic attack is one of the worst ones which one faces. It almost feels like reverting to your childhood phase and from that, we are required to build ourselves all over again”. © Flickr The diagnosis came as a shock, but could not trample Mihir's spirit. He continued to work hard throughout his life, to chart his own path and make his own place in this game called life. So, when the CAT 2018 results were announced earlier this month, guess whose hard work and grit paid off in full? With a 99.97 CAT percentile, Mihir proved to this world that the will to fight and win is the most powerful to survive in this world. Talking about this massive achievement, his mother Jhanvi Kapse said in an interview with MyMedicalMantra that, “all this has come after many hardships. We were not only fighting with his disorder but with the outside world as well, where children like him are not easily accepted”. © IQuanta However, it isn't just his CAT score that is impressive, but the 27-year-old also holds a fancy job at JP Morgan as a quality analyst. When he was busy with his work or preparation for his exams, Mihir would solve puzzles or read fanfictions to destress. Today with such a stellar score, Mihir ranks amongst some of the highest scorers of CAT 2018 and dearly wishes to get through IIM Ahmedabad and work in the investment banking sector, before starting his own startup some 10 years from now. Mihir's journey might have been filled with many challenges, but it was his spirit and determination for a better life, that pushed him to move beyond his disabilities and achieve something many of us have aspired for.
  20. While finding true love should definitely be your end goal, there are a few things you should set yourself up for, before you go looking for it. Having mighty real expectations is the key to finding the love you truly deserve and if you don't really know what you want to find, having some solid parameters before is quite valid. Because you never know when you may find love and what you may find in terms for love, but keeping some check-ins handy before you meet someone is always helpful. © Eros International In today's day and age, we all need something to keep us grounded and away from unreal expectations from our partners. Because if we come with a set of over-the-top expectations, we're bound to be disappointed at some point in time in life. If we have a summation of realistic expectations that can easily be met by the other person, then we're definitely going to attract a healthy relationship towards us. So, in lieu of the above, here are 3 things you must do, to give up on some unhealthy expectations you may have, to attract a happy and a stable relationship and a love that lasts long: (1) Have A Set Of Priorities By priorities, I mean segregate your expectations. Especially of what you really want from your future partner. Always remember though, high expectations are different from unreal expectations. High expectations as long as are achievable should not be shelved. They're made to fulfil your needs and standards after all. Just make sure that your high expectations aren't unreal. After all, if you're sorted and an established man, you want a woman on the same wavelength and there's nothing wrong with expecting that. © AA Films (2) Set Some Boundaries Always know what you will put up with and what you won't, so you don't take your self-esteem and respect the whole hog when it's not required to. Sometimes, unknowingly, we do things that are far away from our comfort zone and we really don't need to or have to do them. We do them in order to please the other person. While you most certainly can please them, you don't have to put your self-respect at stake for it. Try not to compromise on your core values in a relationship and have a set of boundaries marked down to the T. For instance, if you're averse to infidelity and you face something like that in the future, set a boundary to never normalise it in your head, just because your partner messes up or cheats on you. © Vicom 18 Motion Pictures (3) Lock Down On Your Needs & Wants Having your core values intact and realising what they are is very important before you meet anyone you want to spend the rest of your life with. Work with tangibles in this situation. For example, if you want children, work out your views on marriage and the kind of lifestyle you want to adapt to when you find the right person. It's important you work on what you need and want before you agree to settle down with someone. Having a conversation about the same with your future partner is healthy but that can only happen if you clearly understand what your needs and wants are and you need to know them way before and be certain about them. © Zee Studios The key is not to have everything in common with your future partner. The key is to lock down everything you want to set for yourself so you and she can have a smooth life together, even if you don't have much in common. If you respect each other's choices and live your life the way you want to, you can still make a great couple and have a healthy relationship. For that, these three pointers come in handy and if you do these three things before falling in love, you're definitely sorted for life!
  21. Looking back in time, I had always wanted to become a cricketer and my entire childhood was spent on the pitch. Then came the shock for me, as just like many talented young players, I could not clear the national trials and sadly had to put the bat down. My parents and teachers asked me to focus on the dreaded board exams. Back then I was extremely skinny. So skinny that my ribs were visible to the naked eye! People assumed that just because I was skinny, I was weak, which resulted in me getting bullied. This got to my head at times and I wanted to hit back but since I was way too skinny, they would often overpower me. This constant body shaming was bringing down my morale and confidence. Then I thought that if I would gain some weight, people will stop picking on me and I could stand up for myself. I joined a gym solely for this purpose. When I went in, I couldn't even lift a 2.5 kg dumbbell and even bodyweight exercises would hurt me. I was yet again bullied at the gym. I got frustrated within a week with all the bullying at the gym and decided to quit. Later that night, I saw Yash Anand's body transformation on YouTube. He was skinny just like me. Actually, even skinnier! But with consistency and hard work he built a great physique. This motivated me to forget about my bullies and just focus on my goal. Since that day there has been no turning back. Week by week, I overcame my weaknesses and got stronger. I learned from different Indian YouTubers and made my diet that fitted my lifestyle and budget. Training I usually follow two muscle groups a day routine and split it up into push-pull. Compound movements still are the core of my training. Progressive overload plays another big factor in muscle growth that I have always kept in mind. Eating I counted the calories that I needed in order to put on muscle mass and that was about it. I cook all my meals and keep a check on how much I am consuming and what all I am eating throughout the day. My ultimate goal is to build a physique like Hrithik Roshan, and I believe that in the last 2 years I have made some progress towards my goal. And I will continue to better myself each day.

  24. It's honestly a struggle for women to find a man who will fit into the bracket of being the perfect husband. Obviously, it works both ways but since we love writing for men, let us tell you that women, inevitably, when they start dating you, skim through your qualities so that you fit the relationship quotient. Apart from being charismatic, confident and good in bed, there are numerous other qualities you should possess to make a good husband to a woman who deserves your effort. (c)Getty Images Mostly, we all are under the misconception that women and men alike date partners that are different from the partners they chose when they want to get married. While it may be true in some cases, most cases, we believe, you'd want that constancy in your life of having to wake to the same person every day. So, if you're a man looking to finally plunge into the marriageable route, you need to be ready for that and have certain qualities that make women want to get married too, to gravitate towards you. Here are 5 essential qualities you should possess in order to make a good husband: (1) Be There For Her Even When It's Inconvenient For You Yes, I know you'd ask that why do you have to be there all the time and that you too have a life that's equally important. Some may even counter saying she likes her independence so why do you need to bend over backwards to do things for her. But you see, partnerships require compromise and sacrifice and you're not choosing to date her but spend your life with her. There are times when she may fall weak. Like when she's having a baby with you or when she's going through menopause. You can't leave her in these tough times and venture off thinking you have a life of your own. You have bigger responsibilities towards your partner now and it's good to start displaying them when you're in a relationship with her, in order for her to know, you'll be around through thick and thin. (c)Getty Images (2) You Have To Accept Her Flaws Maybe when you're dating someone you can count their flaws and tell them to make correctives. But if you're seriously considering spending your life with someone and hoping they see you the same way, then you need to accept their flaws and accept who and what they are. If you want to address them so the person knows a few things are unruly, then you should do that. But make sure you do it without making her feel guilty that she has flaws in the first place. She shouldn't be hiding her true self from you because she thinks you may not accept her. Make your acceptance of her as an important person in your life, from the start. (c)Getty Images (3) A Keen Sense of Responsibility Is Important You can be enamoured by her, profess all your love towards her but if you're not responsible, there is no way she's ever going to consider marrying you. She sees responsibility as an inevitable bargain between two people in a relationship. It gives her direction towards the future. If you show her you're a responsible human being, she will want to pursue the idea of you, in her future. For her, responsibility from you goes synonymously with nurturing and taking care of the children you may want to have, of the future you two hold and other important aspects in a marriage. So, it's time you pull up your socks and gather a sense of being responsible, not just for you, but for her too. (c)Getty Images (4) You Need To Be Open In Your Communication Communication can get tough sometimes when you need to open up about yourself, but in a relationship which is serious, that's something which should be involuntary. If you don't open up and communicate your hopes, fears and dreams then the relationship is quite superficial. Sometimes the best people move away because there isn't any communication between them. If you and she have trouble opening up about things and healthily communicating, maybe find ways to do so more effectively. Communication is the key to a good and harmonious relationship. (c)Getty Images (5) Infidelity Doesn't Make A Good Husband Men always tend to lean toward infidelity. There isn't an established reason for it yet, but somewhere down the line, cheating becomes inevitable. It's not blaming or something to pinpoint. It's a fact and if you think one woman is never enough for you, you probably need to either communicate that with your partner or move away. You can even see if you want to be in an open relationship/marriage with her, in case you do want her in your life but can't trust yourself enough. That way, you're honest to her about things. But make sure the decision to do that is mutual. Most marriages break because of infidelity and if you're someone who cheats, it's good to spell it out way before. (c)Getty Images Making these characteristic changes is not easy, I agree, but sometimes things need to be mended to make space for newer, better things. If you feel you're someone who can change to adapt and bring in a truer sense of companionship to your life, then try and make these changes and one day you will make a great husband to someone!
  25. 'Boys will be boys' - this is such a common phrase, unfortunately. But finally, people are realizing the negative impact of it. No, don't let boys be boys and excuse any kind of horrible behaviour. Don't just let boys be boys but hold boys accountable for their actions, because let's be real, it's about damn time. Toxic masculinity is a thing that everyone needs to fight against, regardless of the gender, but first people need to understand what it means. Trying to get through to people about the same topic, Gillette released a powerful ad. The ad tries to shed light on all the negative consequences of letting boys be boys, the biggest example being the #MeToo movement. If no one sets a good example for little boys, they will grow up to do the same things that have been happening for years and the cycle of toxic masculinity will never ever be broken. But, it's high time for a change and the powerful ad is advocating what's required right now. “Boys will be boys”? Isn't it time we stopped excusing bad behavior? Re-think and take action by joining us at https://t.co/giHuGDEvlT. #TheBestMenCanBe pic.twitter.com/hhBL1XjFVo — Gillette (@Gillette) January 14, 2019 Of course, this was met with backlash, but it was great to see the appreciation for it as well. After reading all the negative tweets, I feel like people who are hating on it don't even understand the concept of toxic masculinity but rather think that it's just calling all men toxic when it's so clearly not the case. I'd like to thank Gillette for reminding me how horrible it is to be man. This should sit well with your customers. NOT. — Chuck Woolery (@chuckwoolery) January 14, 2019 So basically being asked to behave like decent human beings and treat other human beings with respect is asking for too much. No one is saying it is horrible to be a man, people are just saying ignoring or perpetuating the horrible behaviour by some men has been creating a bad environment for everyone. I've used @Gillette razors my entire adult life but this absurd virtue-signalling PC guff may drive me away to a company less eager to fuel the current pathetic global assault on masculinity. Let boys be damn boys. Let men be damn men. https://t.co/Hm66OD5lA4 — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) January 14, 2019 I shouldn't really be surprised that Piers Morgan is also ranting about it online, I would have been shocked if he hadn't said anything. Piers, it's a global assault on toxic masculinity, not masculinity, but the fact that you can't even distinguish the two says a lot about you. Hey @Gillette, I have an idea, stay out of politics. Real men already stop other guys from acting badly. A razor company should want me to shave with your product. And, btw, I'm extremely masculine. And there's nothing wrong with that. #TheBestMenCanBe — Joe Pags Pagliarulo (@JoeTalkShow) January 15, 2019 When did asking people to be good human beings become political? And, yes there's nothing wrong with being masculine. Thank you, next. So nice to see @Gillette jumping on the “men are horrible” campaign permeating mainstream media and Hollywood entertainment. I for one will never use your product again. https://t.co/uZf7v4sFKm — James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) January 14, 2019 If you can't comprehend the message, maybe you're part of the problem and that's why you felt personally attacked. Take some time to sit back and reflect on your own actions rather than ignoring this realization. Dear @Gillette: Some men are violent misogynists. Most are willing to die to protect our liberties and freedoms (including those of women). It is grotesque to repeatedly ascribe collective guilt onto half of humanity known as men. Being a man is not a disease nor a pathology. https://t.co/CAxGadDiD6 — Gad Saad (@GadSaad) January 14, 2019 No one is calling all the men in the world horrible, just the ones who still don't understand how their actions have so many horrible consequences. Its main message seems to be "don't HAVE a dick". https://t.co/VvD7HPFfqi — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) January 14, 2019 Just FYI, you don't need to have a dick to be a man, because you know, trans men exist. Okay, I feel like that was enough hate, and enough answers to hate so let's enjoy some sensible tweets by woke people. .@Gillette's new campaign thoughtfully and critically examines what "The Best a Man Can Get," the brand's iconic tagline, means today. A must watch. https://t.co/5WKmfferhl — Arianna Huffington (@ariannahuff) January 15, 2019 And, people seriously have a problem with people trying make the world a better place. Once again, I'm very much okay with this shift in cultural standards. "Be a good human" is getting ever-more commercially viable. I'm down with a future where it's cool to be protective and proactive at making the world better. https://t.co/iYsGxBQ9QF — Mika McKinnon (@mikamckinnon) January 14, 2019 Take notes. THIS is how you use your brand. THIS is how you engage with your audience. Gillette being aware of mostly having a male audience and using their influence as a global brand to make a change for the better. other companies take notes pic.twitter.com/KCdxKDLji0 — laq (@spidervesre) January 15, 2019 It's so damaging and it's time for change. Folks are upset @Gillette? No #men and #masculinity are not #toxic. But #Toxicmasculinity is a cultural belief that real men don't cry. Real men don't show fear. Real men don't lose. Real men take what they want. This thinking isn't new. It is toxic and it damages men and women. https://t.co/EWBJeRZnZm — Jeffrey Reddick (@JeffreyaReddick) January 15, 2019 Same. aaaaannnnnd Gillette made e cry at my desk https://t.co/9HYV24ZDbV — 20Pemberteen (@DaveYourFave) January 15, 2019 Very well done. Exploitative? Maybe. Brave and timely? Absolutely. Also, I cried. Well done, @Gillette. #foroursons https://t.co/4hYNcgsxoX — Emily Andras (@emtothea) January 15, 2019 It truly is. Amazing call to action. https://t.co/MF1Hivkjfu — Marcus J. Carey (@marcusjcarey) January 14, 2019 Exactly. Thanks for this Gillette. I agree. We absolutely as men can do a better job instilling better morals and behavior overall with one another. Handing those core values down to our kids is paramount. And don't tell me it doesn't exist. Not all of us sure. But enough to change. https://t.co/3UVbnq2WtO — Max Gonzalez (@GassyMexican) January 15, 2019 Shave everything! Screw toxic masculinity. This is an awesome step to take. Great ad. *urge to shave things increases* https://t.co/ebAQ0ZsB0m — Joaquin Baldwin (@joabaldwin) January 14, 2019 We definitely do. lmao woke razor blades is the future we deserve https://t.co/diAPiIvnsA — Sonny Bunch (@SonnyBunch) January 14, 2019
