  1. From being portrayed as perennial macho men with a penchant for saving damsels to showing their vulnerable side and being open to emotions, Bollywood's portrayal of male characters has sure come a long way. Back in the early 80s, men were shown as larger-than-life characters with the focus mostly on this burning rage that they carried within them all the time. The concepts of 'ladke rote nahi hai' and 'mard ko dard nahi hota' were pretty much a constant back in the day for Indian cinema but now, things have changed drastically as male characters are challenging stereotypes. Here are 7 brilliant male characters that we have seen in Bollywood movies, who opened the dialogue around the notion that men are not just about being 'strong', 'tough', 'angry' and 'manly': 1. Shahid Kapoor As Aditya Kashyap - Jab We Met © T-Series Aditya Kashyap in Jab We Met is a very beautifully written character and anyone who has seen the movie can attest to that. Here we have a man who wants to create a safe environment for a woman, a complete stranger, who's travelling with him. He is humble, poised, and someone who thinks about others before himself. He makes sure that Geet is comfortable in the journey with him, showing the audience that men can be trusted and are not just mere stalkers, whose goal is to simply chase down the woman, irrespective of her wishes. "Haan, main tujhe bahut pasand karta hoon par woh mera problem hai. Tujhe tension lene ki koi zaroorat nahin. (Yes, I love you but thatâs my problem. You don't have to worry about it)," this dialogue by him just goes on to show the depths of his personality. 2. Vikrant Massey As Amol - Chhapaak © FoxStarHindi When you fall for someone, one of the first things to strike is looks and beauty. But, Amol in Chhapaak is here to show you a different side of men who believe that love is not just about falling for looks alone and that the person on the inside also matters. Amol falls for Malti's courage, ethics, and how she deals with all her sorrows. That in itself is what makes her beautiful to him, even though her face was left disfigured from the acid attack. 3. Shah Rukh Khan As Kabir Khan - Chak De! India © YRF Kabir Khan is one of the very few male characters, who is a feminist, that we have seen on the big screen. He coaches a team of female national hockey players and does not go easy on them just because they are women, as it should be. Khan sees them as hockey players, not as women, making it clear right from the start that gender does not matter to him when it comes to doing his job. However, he is also someone who does not hold back from reminding the girls from time to time how strong they are as women. True feminism. 4. Manav Kaul As Ashok Dube- Tumhari Sullu © T-Series Ashok Dube, another well-crafted character, shows how a man, in a household, is capable of making drastic changes to his life and give the reins over to his better half, if need be. His wife takes on a job of being an RJ at night who hosts a live show and talks to people, especially men, who get addicted to her voice. She slowly starts earning way more than Ashok and this, somehow, affects him. But he does not let himself be consumed by the negative feelings and becomes supportive of his wife and her venture. Well, this is a beautiful transition of roles that we should celebrate. 5. Ayushmann Khurrana As Kartik Singh - Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan © T-Series A lot has already been talked about this particular project on how it challenged the stereotypes surrounding the LGBTQ community in our country. Kartik is a character who is a breath of fresh air when it comes to the portrayal of gay men in Bollywood. He shows how being gay does not necessarily make one 'girly' or 'feminine', something a lot of people still think to this day, and that they are regular people who just want what other couples want- acceptance and acknowledgement. 6. Arjun Kapoor As Kabir Kamlesh Bansal - Ki And Ka © Eros Now When the movie released in 2016, people couldn't stop raving about Arjun's progressive character, a man who aspires to be a house husband. For years, we have seen movies with women taking command of the kitchen and running the house, but here we have Kabir who has no qualms in doing the household chores and letting his wife earn. 7. Amitabh Bachchan As Bhashkor Banerjee - Piku © Sony Entertainment Pictures Our dads may sure be liberal but we cannot, in no way, indulge in a conversation about our virginity with them. And then there is Bhashkor, who is changing that notion as he doesn't shy away in accepting, publically, that his daughter Piku is sexually active and he has no issues with that. These characters make us want to celebrate men in a very different way and we are glad that Bollywood is evolving towards a progressive direction through these brilliant characters.

  3. When it comes to picking the best sunglasses for men, face shapes play a very important role. In most cases, it's easy to find out what your face shape is. Once you know you can easily go for the best sunglasses for your face shape. But when it comes to round faces and oval faces, picking out sunglasses can be a little hard. These face shapes are very similar to each other and can get confusing. Not to worry, we are here to solve your problems! Whether you are looking for the best sunglasses for round faces or sunglasses for men with oval faces, you will find a sure shot answer here. How To Know Your Face Shape?Even though we are only discussing two of the most common face shapes, there are many others that you should know about. From square, oblong, triangles and many more. Your face shape can also be a mixture of two shapes. To know your face shape, you need to consider four major factors. These are your forehead width, cheekbonesâ width, your jawline and the length of your face. Best Sunglasses For Round FaceRound faces have a rounder jawline and cheekbones that aren't very sharp. They have a chubby appeal, with the jawline and cheekbones falling almost perpendicular to each other. The best sunglasses for round faces would be the ones that are in contrast to the shape. In other words, sharper and more structured shapes like squares and rectangles are best suited for round faces. Here are the best sunglasses for round faces. __ECOMLOOKS__839__ __ECOMLOOKS__840__ __ECOMLOOKS__841__ Best Sunglasses For Oval FaceBoth round and oval faces are very common and have a circular shape. This is why they can get easily confused. The only differentiating factor is the length of your face. If the length of your face is more than the breadth, your face shape is oval. Luckily, oval faces can pull off any style. If you are looking for the best sunglasses for men with oval faces, you can just stop, tbh. You can literally pick any shape and it will work for you! Lucky right? Just make sure that you pick the right size. Anything too big might not suit your face. Even though most shapes suit oval faces, there are certain sunglasses that are better. Letâs go through them! __ECOMLOOKS__842__ __ECOMLOOKS__843__ __ECOMLOOKS__844__ Choose Wisely! Now that you know all about the best sunglasses for your face shape, making a choice shouldnât be that hard! Explore More: View the full article

  5. Following the highly-tensed developments that took place at the border between the Indian and the Chinese soldiers that resulted in the loss of lives, a lot of people have come out to show their support. #BoycottChineseProducts is currently trending on Twitter and people are sharing how they're supporting the movement by getting rid of Chinese products they own. We also stumbled upon a video in which a group of people can be seen flinging a Chinese-made TV from their balcony to the ground. This incident is said to have taken place in Surat. Here, check out the video - सà¥à¤°à¤¤ : à¤à¤¾à¤à¤¨à¥à¤ à¤à¥à¤µà¥ à¤à¥ तà¥à¤¡à¤¼à¤à¤° लà¥à¤à¥ नॠà¤à¤¿à¤¯à¤¾ विरà¥à¤§à¥¤ à¤à¥à¤¨à¥ à¤à¥à¤à¥ à¤à¤¸à¥à¤¤à¥à¤®à¤¾à¤² नहॠà¤à¤°à¤¨à¥ à¤à¥ लà¥à¤à¥ सॠà¤à¥ à¤à¤ à¤à¤ªà¥à¤²à¥¤#BoycottChineseProducts pic.twitter.com/FBgY6wya11 â Janak Dave (@dave_janak) June 17, 2020 We're not entirely sure about the exact manufacturer of the TV, but it's said to be a Chinese brand. You can also hear these people chanting Bharat Mata Ki Jai as they swarm in to destroy what's left of the TV on the ground. It's one thing to uninstall apps from your phones and a completely different thing to smash products that are made by the Chinese people. It's quite an intense visual, to say the least. However, it's also quite funny how some of them were dancing on the TV just to be a part of the video. While some people think it's the right thing to do, others believe that things are getting way out of hand now. We're seeing mixed reactions to this particular incident. Yeah, this makes sense. Aage se mat Lena Chinese ... Abhi kyu Tod rahe ho â Quarantined Engineer 2.0 (@iamkumar001) June 17, 2020 Again, a valid point. LOL first they spend money ...buying it....now they are destroying it. Hehehe Nuksaan kiskaa...faayda kiska â somalthakore (@somalthakore) June 17, 2020Good luck India, good luck. pic.twitter.com/2GYWZXyCXU â Suchitra Vijayan (@suchitrav) June 17, 2020 Amidst all of this, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also spoke on the matter today. "I would like to assure the nation that the sacrifice of our jawans will not be in vain. For us, the unity and sovereignty of the country is the most important...India wants peace but it is capable to give a befitting reply if instigated," he said. Earlier today, we also learned about the list of apps that were deemed as not safe for use by the Indian Intelligence agencies. This whole anti-China sentiment seems to have reached its peak and it remains to be seen what comes after this. View the full article
  6. Who would have thought that instead of walking alongside a beach, we would be spending our summers locked up inside or standing in long queues!

  9. Every time we read or watch a story based on women, it is sidelined and tagged as a clichéd âchic-flickâ and presumed to be a generic tale on matters concerning only women. On the other hand, for centuries, we have watched and read stories that celebrated the valour of men. Women oriented movies are a pretty recent development in terms of filmmakers taking up this subject and projecting it on the screen. Prime Videoâs Four More Shots Please is one show that gained popularity and connected well with the viewers which showcased the life and the struggles of a modern Indian woman and its second season has also released now. The best part about this show is that it is not just the women who are enjoying it, but the men are also learning a thing or two about what goes in the life and mind of a woman. Completed this within few hours and must say it was worth waitingï¸love for the maker's ï¸â #loveislove #baniJ #KirtiKulhari#sayanigupta#maanvigagroo#FourMoreShotsPlease â Ajay Neeta Patel (@neeta_ajay) April 17, 2020#FourMoreShotsPlease New Season.

A great experience I must tell. Shoutout to @sayanigupta @bani_j @IamKirtiKulhari & @maanvigagroo for giving us something to cheer for during #lockdown My particular fav is #damini but kudos to Vani's strong #umang too. #FourMoreShotsPlease pic.twitter.com/fGKnZGTMez â Arindam Pal (@ArindamPal6) April 17, 2020These above-mentioned tweets are by men who have loved the show but if you still feel itâs not for you, we won't force you to obviously watch it. But, actors Maanvi Gagroo and Kirti Kulhari, who starred in the show, spoke with MensXP and told us why men should watch the show and it might convince you to binge-watch it as well . Maanvi Gagroo 1. Firstly, to begin with, a lot of men have watched the first season and they have loved it. It's catering to men too in some ways and a lot of my male friends enjoyed it. They liked it because it's light, fun and has four smart and confident women. 2. Maybe, men can get an insight into women's psyche from what they talk to how they react over certain things. 3. Well, the shooting locations are great and men can take a few ideas for a date with their partners and maybe take them there, obviously after Coronavirus goes for good! 4. I think they can watch it for the male characters because they are written really well and in fact, we keep joking among ourselves that these kinds of men can only exist in fiction. They can take tips from men in the show. 5. Lastly, it's time that men should watch stories about women just like women have been watching stories about men for years and we have never complained that it's a male-oriented film. We haven't ever given tags like men-flick. It's for both genders. We have not made the show thinking it's only for women. It's the men who think it's a chick-flick and it's time that we stop seeing shows through the lens of a particular gender. View this post on InstagramSeason 1, Day 1, Selfie take 3 #throwback #FourMoreShotsPlease #GoofyGirlsAreTheBest Do you guys remember this scene?!A post shared by (@maanvigagroo) Kirti Kulhari 1. First of all, the way I look at the cinema or any piece of art, it is not divided on the basis of gender. People who are open-minded for that matter would understand and we live in a society where we co-exist. It's as important for men to know women as it is for women to know men. 2. It gives you an insight into a woman's world and in this case, we have four women who come from different walks of life. View this post on InstagramOuttakes #FourMoreShotsPlease #round2A post shared by (@maanvigagroo) 3. There are enough male characters in the show for men to connect with and resonate with the situation of the male characters. 4. It might also give a different perspective about women that you have been missing all this while. It will help you see things through their eyes. 5. It's well-written and the characters are very relatable. If you are into it, you would be feeling all the emotions. I would be interested in knowing what men connected with, in the show. It will be great to know about the show from a man's perspective. I am sure now you have ample reasons to watch the show. Well, I also asked the two of them what new their characters are getting on board this time. On this, Maanvi told me, âShe is just as lost as she was in the first season but with a twist. She knows she wants to chase dreams but doesn't know what her dreams are. I don't relate to the character and I had to add my own nuances to the character. Sidhi is younger than me and I feel protective of my character. It's amusing to see how a privileged person is trying to live a life full of struggles.â View this post on InstagramFelt cute, might not delete later #rebellion #4moreshotsplease #siddhipiddhiA post shared by (@maanvigagroo) Talking about her character, Kirti added, âMy character has obviously become wiser and maturer after what she went through in season one. You also see Anjana taking a new journey. There are new problems that she will be facing this season. She will overcome all of it and become wiser in the process.â View this post on InstagramReady to take u all on another roller coaster ride this 17th â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ @4moreshotspls @primevideoin #fourmoreshotsplease and I so know u guys are gonna love it...

  10. The lockdown in the country has got people trying different things at home, especially experimenting with their looks. From haircuts to a trimming their beard, men and women are trying everything they can. Rajkummar Rao has taken it to some other level as he gave a haircut to his girlfriend Patralekhaa. Patralekhaa took to Instagram to share the video of Rajkummar using a trimmer to give her a perfect haircut and guess what, the result has been impressive. Trust me, I would have loved it if I was stuck with my boyfriend during the lockdown. Well, getting pampered by your man does please a woman. So, I am guessing men can take some lessons from the actor on how to keep pampering their girlfriends or wives. View this post on Instagramà¤à¤¹à¤¾à¤ à¤à¤¾à¤¹ वहाठराह ðð½ @rajkummar_rao â¤ï¸â­ï¸A post shared by (@patralekhaa) Rajkummar has turned into the perfect barber for his ladylove and the actor has always been doing things to make her feel special. This is not the first time that Rajkummar has done something to pamper Patralekhaa. In an interview with Humans Of Bombay, Patralekhaa had shared the little things Rajkummar does for her and that makes her fall in love with him all over again. View this post on InstagramHappy new year to you all. Hope this year is filled with love joy and peaceâ¨ð¸A post shared by (@patralekhaa) She had said, âOnce he was late to see me, so he ran all the way from the airport to Juhu! Not only that, but when we werenât earning much, he gifted me my favourite bagâit was so expensive! Years later, someone stole it in London! I called him sobbingâfor me, it was about the memories. Heâd bought it for me when he didnât have much. Later, at our hotel, the exact same bag was waiting for me. These little things make me realize how lucky I am for him. And the best part is, he always says heâs the lucky one. Isnât that what a relationship needs? To remind each other how grateful we are?â Rajkummar is truly an ideal partner and never fails to set relationship goals. Men can take a cue on how to make their âbaeâ feel loved as you guys stay locked in quarantine. View the full article
  11. People who love to or rather 'have' to work out in the gym, are really having a tough time right now. Much before India went into a proper lockdown, a lot of gyms shut their doors citing health reasons. Of course, because old habits die hard, and fitness, more than a habit, is a lifestyle, people have been working out in their homes, and are using some regular household items to workout with. © iStock Indian batsman Shikhar Dhawan showed us a few ways to work out at home. He recently shared a video on Instagram, where he was using a floor wiper and resistance bands for strength training. Hereâs the video. View this post on InstagramPocha training ð§¹ð #kingforeverA post shared by (@shikhardofficial) This got us thinking about all those times when we had vowed to go and use that gym membership we had purchased but never got around to actually using it. This also made us realise, we really donât need a gym, or at the very least, not having access to one, isnât really that big a challenge. © iStock Here are some basic workout routines men can follow using a simple stick including a wiper and resistance bands: © iStock Resistance Band Deadlifts © iStock Resistance band deadlifts are a great way to work on your glutes, along with the rest of your leg muscles, as well as the muscles that form your back. Simply stand on the band with your feet about two feet apart, and pull up on a lever or a stick that has been looped across the band, raising them up to your shoulders if you can. You need to keep your back and your legs straight. Resistance Band Shoulder Press © iStock Shikharâs version of the resistance band shoulder press is actually quite cool, as he is using the tension of the band to work his entire upper body out. Although, his was a slightly unusual way to go about. He seems to be kneeling on the bands and then lifting the wiper over his head. Do ensure that you keep your back straight throughout, and you fully stretch your arms to get the best results. Resistance Band Bicep Curl © iStock Again, stand on the bands in a similar way as you did when you did the deadlifts. Bend your knees slightly and hold the position till youâre done with the routine. Now, lift up the âwiperâ or the bar that youâre using up to your face, or as high as you can, depending on the tension of the band. Again, ensure that you have a straight back when working out and that you have your knees bent at the same angle to keep the tension the same throughout the exercise. For the following two, ditch the wiper or whatever bar or stick that you have been using. Resistance Band Bent Over Rows © iStock Stand on the bands, again, with your feet a little apart, about the same width as your shoulder, and lean forward. Bend your knees ever so slightly. Now, while holding the resistance bands, pull them up moving only your arms, and shoulders, and try to stretch them behind your back. You need to keep your back straight, for this to be effective. Resistance Band Pushups © iStock Finally, we have the resistance band pushups, which actually is the easiest of the lot. Lie down like you would lie down when doing a plank or a pushup and drape the resistance band over your shoulders. You will need to press down on the band using your hands. Make sure you are positioning the band in such a way that it does not slip from its position. Perform your set pushup routine. The resistance band adds resistance and increases the force exerted on your arms, thus working on them in a better way Working out at your home may get difficult, especially when you donât have a trainer and you need to work out alone. Do ensure that you are thoroughly familiar with the exercises before you start taking these things up. And no, reading up thoroughly on the internet does not count. View the full article
  12. In the current situation, the 21-day lockdown already seems to be going on for an eternity. And, given that the spread of the contagion isnât going to slow down in the next couple of weeks, it will be wise if we brace ourselves for an indefinite extension of the lockdown. © iStock With that being said, people are already planning on how they are going to splurge on themselves, once the lockdown is lifted. And boy, do we have to say, that some of the ideas seem bonkers. We spoke to 6 people and asked what they planned to do after the lockdown: 1. 'Revenge' Shopping © iStock Says Ritwik Ghosh, a final year economics student in Delhi, âI had a trip planned to Belgium for a week because this is the only time that I can actually take a proper vacation. The lockdown and the pandemic was really a bummer for a number of students. We also missed our farewell. "So, I have planned to go on a mad shopping spree, once things get back to normal. I intentionally plan on going for the more expensive stuff, things that I would usually not go for. I have the money that I had saved, plus, I missed out on a lot of shopping anyway. Think of it like avenging my now dead vacation plans.â 2. Going To A Fancy Spa/Salon © iStock Dharmesh Kanojia, a graphic designer at a notable publication house in Delhi, says that he will be going to a high-end salon. âI am also considering visiting a fancy spa, and just go bonkers. I have never been to a spa before and would normally get my hair cut at the local barberâs. The lockdown made me realise that I had actually often wondered what happens at those fancy places. Now I am just curious. And because it will be a one-time thing, I should be able to afford that,â says Dharmesh. 3. Buying A New Phone, TV & A Laptop © iStock Ankur Raj, a desk editor, at a notable economic and financial news website in Kolkata, says, âI will be buying a couple of personal gadgets and upgrading some electronics for my home. The lockdown made me realise that it has actually been ages since I upgraded my television and laptop, and the current that I use, is just hopelessly outdated. "I would not have realised this, had I not been forced to use them for a prolonged time. Since there really isnât a good time to make a purchase like this, I will just wait a month or so to see where my finances stand, and for any upcoming new models to be launched. 4. A Month-Long Vacation © iStock Paras Verma, who works as a content strategist in a Noida-based start-up says, âWe have been working way harder it seems during the lockdown. I need to take some time off from work. I plan to take a short vacation to Bhimtal, or Sattal for a month or so, otherwise, I think I will just lose my mind. On the other hand, a week-long trip to Laos or Cambodia also seems to be a great option.â 5. Checking Into A Resort For A Week © iStock Remember when Indian bowler Yuzvendra Chahal said that he wouldnât come back home for 3 years after the lockdown? It seems that has inspired Sahil Garg, a trade analyst from Gurugram. He says, âI will check into a resort for a week. I will go to my office in the morning and go back to the resort in the evening. I live alone and have had to live all this while without coming into contact with another human being. It feels like it has been ages since I actually met a human being face to face.â 6. A Multicourse Dinner At A Fancy Restaurant © iStock This lockdown has been especially hard on people who are in a relationship but couldnât stay together. Inadvertently, for most of these people, this is turning out to be a long-distance relationship. Aroop Dasgupta, an entrepreneur based out of Bengaluru says, âMy partner and I love to eat. We would go out to eat regularly and would often eat at new places. Our long drives and trips would also revolve around food. After the lockdown is lifted, we will be going to possibly the fanciest and the most high-end restaurant in the city, and have a multicourse meal. This will, of course, be following a thorough spa session, but the restaurant will be the key.â Seems like people have their plans all laid out and waiting eagerly for the day to come when the lockdown ends. We only wish that this lockdown ends soon enough. View the full article
  13. 'More men than women have serious problems, and patients who are overweight are at higher risk,' says medic
  14. Back in March, we took a closer look at the collective efforts of some of the worldâs most influential and important CEOs when it came to organising and funding aid during the coronavirus pandemic. While some of them are doing truly fantastic work, hereâs a question that probably no one cared to ask - how are the billionaires doing? Naturally, if you earn multiple thousands of dollars per hour, worrying about layoffs, pay cuts and everything in between is a bit unrelatable for the worldâs richest. But as the going says, more money, more problems. It certainly rang true for Reliance head honcho Mukesh Ambani, who lost nearly 30% of his net worth in a single month and tumbled from his 9th place spot to a distant 18th. Hereâs how the worldâs 10 wealthiest men have kept the fort running during the greatest crisis of the 21st century - so far. Jeff Bezos Embed: Bezos (Reuters) Company: Amazon Net Worth: $117.2 B Position In Feb 2020: #1 While the Amazon founder and CEO has faced a fair bit of media backlash, his workers have mobilised at company centres in New York, protesting against the e-commerce giantâs failure to address and mobilise against the spread of COVID-19 amongst an infected workplace. In what some have dubbed a PR move, Bezos has since donated $100 million to US food banks, while on the sheets, things look seriously skewed. The Quarantine Economy â Jeff Bezos is the only billionaire out of the top 20 whose wealth has increased this year. pic.twitter.com/HzAlaa7skW â Robert Frank (@robtfrank) March 30, 2020 In a world where pretty much every company has drawn blanks, the worldâs richest man continues to get, well⦠richer. No big surprise there - although Bezos did suffer a considerable 7% drop in his net worth in February. Bill Gates © Reuters Company: Microsoft Net Worth: $99.5 B Position In Feb 2020: #3 âI never lived through anything this dramatic,â Gates admitted last Friday during a âDaily Homeroomâ live-streamed chat with Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy. The Microsoft co-founder was already focused on attacking healthcare and education deficits in the world with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. By late March, Microsoftâs stock tanked by around 13% - though Gates was fine owing to profits of just under $800 million in January. âThe normal things I do â talking about polio eradication, going into meetings at the foundation, traveling to meet with scientists â thatâs all gone. When I wake up in the morning, I think, âIs this a nightmare?,â questioned Gates - although waking up in a $66 million mansion isnât too nightmarish, at least on a personal level. Regardless of the dire circumstances, Gates seems to stick to his usual positive self, sharing a message of hope with the world. âWeâre all in this together, even on a global basis,â he reminds us. âIâm seeing many people rise to the occasion to help out others or to use their skills to try and bring this to an end.â Bernard Arnault © Reuters Company: LVMH Net Worth: $85.2 B Position In Feb 2020: #2 Europeâs richest man hasnât been sitting down during the crisis - even before gaining $11 Billion as stocks surged on President Trumpâs commitment to a stimulus package, the French luxury goods titan was busy financing the delivery of millions of medical masks to France from Chinese suppliers and converting Dior perfume factories outside Orleans into hand sanitizer manufacturing units. While the numbers for early April seem tilted in Arnaultâs favour, the fact remains that post his companyâs takeover of American luxury jewelry brand Tiffany & Co., the CEO very briefly touched Jeff Bezosâ coveted worldâs richest status with a near-$400 million boost in January, which plummeted in February and early March, sending him back to 3rd place. While the man behind Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and more has several properties around the world, itâs likely that heâs currently holed up in his upmarket Paris residence, surrounded by one of the most expensive collections of art in the world. Warren Buffet © Reuters Company: Berkshire Hathaway Net Worth: $70.5 B Position In Feb 2020: #4 The 90-year old mega-investor seems to be in relatively cheery spirits during the lockdown - only recently shifting to working from home instead of the firmâs headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska. Known for his shrewd money making decisions, Buffetâs strategy throughout the spread of coronavirus is to keep cool and focus on investments projected to recover healthily after predicted lockdown periods. This trend has continued for quite a while now - he aggressively targeted the airline industryâs plummeting share prices back in early March after losing $233 million in January - a move that historically saw massive dividends during the last major US airline crash after 9/11. All things considered however, Buffet seems content to wait it out and calculate the best course of action, while sipping on his favourite beverage at home. âWell, Iâm drinking a little more Coca-Cola, actually. That seems to ward off everything else in life,â Buffett joked in a Yahoo Finance interview - referring to the drink company that he invested $1 billion in back in 1988. Larry Elison © Wikimedia Company: Oracle Net Worth: $61.8 B Position In Feb 2020: #6 Co-founder of tech giant Oracle, Elison made himself the worldâs fifth richest man by selling perhaps the most futureproof commodity ever created by the human race - data. While the secretive ex-CEO usually steered far away from interviews, even he came out of his shell following a 11% slash to Oracleâs stock value back in early March. Come out he certainly did - Elison has since taken the fight against COVID-19 very seriously, pretty much walking up to the White House and offering to develop a nationwide two-way system to help track and inform doctors, patients and medical authorities in real-time. Unsurprisingly, the President anecdotally asked, âHow much?â Elisonâs reply? âFor free.â Elison might have mixed feeling about corporate success these days however - while his ranking has moved up the ladder since 2019, heâs also sustained a mammoth $3.5 billion loss since then. Michael Bloomberg © Reuters Company: Bloomberg LP Net Worth: $57.4 B Position In Feb 2020: #14 The worldâs single most powerful media mogul certainly had one hell of a checklist coming into 2020 - pumping in an astounding $875 million (at least) on a presidential campaign that crashed and burned in less than three months - not exactly the kind of thoughts you want to mull over when stuck in an empty mansion for weeks. As New York Cityâs former mayor, Bloomberg also took out a $75 million cheque addressed to the cityâs various nonprofits in an attempt to help the cityâs worsening COVID crisis, while another $40 million was spent on Bloomberg Philantrophiesâ efforts in third world countries. Amancio Ortega © Reuters Company: Inditex Net Worth: $57.4 B Position In Feb 2020: #5 Founder of Inditex, which owns major fashion brands such as Zara, the Spanish textile tycoon saw major downfall during the early coronavirus stage for similar reasons to the aforementioned Bernard Arnault, as wary consumers shied away from shopping malls and independent stores. This burned a hole in Ortegaâs pocket to the tune of $12.8 billion as 3,785 stores around the world shut down. Admittedly however, Inditex has done its part by donating hundreds of thousands of facemasks to medical institutions as well as offering to use its manufacturing centres to produce scrubs and other hospital gear useful to doctors treating and diagnosing COVID-19 patients. As the company itself continues to function on life support, Ortega continues to support Spain, which closely follows Italy in the level of COVID-19 spread - his last donation facilitated about $76 million towards the cause of ventilators and other hospital equipment to help save Spanish patients. Mark Zuckerberg © Reuters Company: Facebook Net Worth: $57.3 B Position In Feb 2020: #7 If youâre surprised to see Zuckerberg so far down this list, you wonât be the only one. The youngest man in the top 10 has gone as far as 4th place back in 2018, neck and neck with Warren buffet at the time, whoâs nearly three times older than the plucky Harvard dropout. Today paints a much darker picture - the Facebook founder has since been hit relentlessly by the effects of COVID-19, losing around $4.1 billion in just the first week of March. He has, however,erberg donated $25 million to Bill Gates to assist in his healthcare research projects, while setting aside another $100 million grant to help support local journalism, which has experienced major crashes in ad revenue since the outbreak. Steve Ballmer © Reuters Company: Microsoft Net Worth: $56.7 B Position In Feb 2020: #12 Ex-Microsoft CEO and current owner of the LA Clippers NBA team, Ballmerâs ties to Microsoft stock resulted in a massive $5.6 billion drain as the outbreak hit critical status in early March. After donating $25 million to various philanthropic causes, Ballmer and his wife Connie have since chipped in an additional million to support local community colleges, while an undisclosed amount is under talks to help speed up testing and development of a new vaccine for the virus. Jim Walton © Reuters Company: Walmart Net Worth: $53.5 B Position In Feb 2020: #15 Part of one of the most wealthy and widespread family-owned companies in America, Walmartâs heir-apparent Jim Walton has been one of the few corporate leaders to benefit from the coronavirus, with panic-buying at Walmart stores across the US boosting the net values of Jim and his siblings Alice and Rob Walton by an additional $10 billion. Taking note of this windfall, the company has decided to stand by its employees through various schemes - by either raising the hourly wage by $2, hiring 150,000 temp workers, providing $550 million in the form of bonuses and waiving rent for Walmart-leased businesses such as nail salons and restaurants. Along with this, the company has also chipped in $25 million to external charities with a focus on food and school meal programmes. Competition never gets old - especially at the top.

  16. If there ever has been someone in India's pop-cultural consciousness, on whom a lot of people crushed together, it is Milind Soman. No matter what your ***, gender, or sexual orientation has been, having a crush on Milind Soman is something that every 80s and 90s kid has done. © Instagram/milindrunning Even though he doesn't have as prolific a modelling career nowadays (a pity, right?) he still manages to stay in the news in some way or the other. Whether it was his marriage to longtime girlfriend, Ankita Konwar, who is 26 years younger to him, or the countless fitness initiatives that he has taken, we simply can't seem to get enough of him. View this post on Instagram #Repost @officialhumansofbombay • • “I decided to move out of the country & started working with Air Asia, as a cabin crew in Malaysia. It was at that time that my then boyfriend, suddenly passed away. It was heartbreaking–it felt like there was no coming back. A couple of months later, I got posted in Chennai. I was staying in a hotel with my colleagues. Once, in the lobby, I saw a tall, rugged man. It was Milind Soman! I was a big fan! So I went to say hello, but he was busy. A few days later, I saw him again at the hotel's nightclub. I kept looking at him & he was staring at me too! My friends urged me to go talk to him. So I asked if he'd like to dance & he obliged! There was a vibe–I could feel it! But I didn't want to get too involved. So I excused myself & I thought he'd forget about me. But soon he came looking for me–he had to go so he asked for my number. It was a new number, so I didn't remember it & didn't have my phone on me either. So he made my friend take his number & asked me to message him. A few days passed by & I couldn't get him out of my mind. So I texted him & we met again after a week, for dinner. After that, we'd constantly text & meet. But I still couldn't bring myself to get fully involved. Until one day, I told him that because of my past, with my boyfriend, there was a part of me that couldn't let go. To which he said, 'When I fell in love with you, I fell in love with all of you. Even the part that carries the burden of your past. So don't be afraid, we're in this together.' That's when I knew–this was the man for me! We dated for 5 years after that–until we decided to get married! My family & a few others were worried because of the age gap between us. But it wasn't an issue for us! So when they saw us together & they saw how happy I was around him, they agreed too! Believe it or not, we got married thrice! We had a traditional wedding in Alibaug, a white wedding in Spain under a waterfall & the third, at a place called 'the end of the world' there. He's the best thing that's happened to me; he taught me to let go, to fall in love, to be happy. And our adventures have only just begun–I can't wait to live the rest of my life. A post shared by Milind Usha Soman (@milindrunning) on Jun 2, 2019 at 5:38am PDT Just recently he was in the news when he revealed that as a kid, he was associated with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, or the RSS as it is popularly known. Like with all the things that we see Milind do, this too broke the Internet, with Twitter going berserk. Instagram/milindrunning Say what you will, the Made In India star has certainly aged well. We only wish that more of us were blessed with his genes and that potent smile. With that being said, his older photos prove that when it comes to style and drop-dead gorgeous looks, Milind Soman is a sort of a yardstick. © Instagram/milindrunning Let's start with the advertisement that started it all. This iconic photograph was taken by veteran photographer, Prabuddha Dasgupta, who is considered by many the greatest thing to happen to the Indian fashion fraternity ever. © Twitter/MilindSomanFanClub This photograph, that features veteran model Madhu Sapre and Milind Soman a fresh face back then, was a part of an advertorial campaign for a footwear brand. Obviously, the advertisement faced a lot of flack. The models posed bare for the shot, wearing only the sneakers, and the snake. This is not the only time that Milind was in his birthday suit for a shoot. Like any internationally acclaimed model worth his or her salt, Milind has gone bare a number of times, but always in a very nuanced and poised manner, none of that vulgar stuff for him. Still, these images have been raunchy enough to set things buzzing. © Instagram Then, of course, there was this iconic song by Alisha Chinai. Just wrap your head around this - a pop song shot and released in 1995, uploaded on YouTube in 2014, has got over 85 million views, as of today. Take a guess about what actually got those numbers. © Youtube/SonyMusicIndiaVEVO © Twitter/MilindSomanFanClub © Twitter/MilindSomanFanClub Not just that, there were also a number of other films and music videos that he was a part of. However, it was advertisements like the ones he did for male grooming products that made everyone, men and women alike go gaga over him. © Old Spice India And when it comes to style, he has a very natural flair for it - the just-gotten-out-of-bed, messy hairstyle, a mischievous glee in his eyes and a smile that can make anyone blush, Milind has a vivaciousness that's really unsettling. © Twitter/MilindSomanFanClub © Twitter/MilindSomanFanClub And now, at over 50 years of age, he is winning triathlons and iron-man competitions in the toughest conditions. Seriously, what is this guy made of? © Instagram/milindrunning Clearly, the man knows a thing or two about style and looking good. We're pretty sure that if he starts walking the ramp today, again, he will be giving a lot of male models a pretty tough run for their money. Seriously, when was the last time you saw a male model who enjoyed this sort of cult status? © Instagram/milindrunning If only we had those good genes... View the full article
  17. People everywhere are following the rules of staying indoors, self-quarantining and social distancing. There are ways in which you can make the most of this time by actually dipping your toes into something experimental. Take your hair for example, since it is a lockdown sort of a situation where the whole world is operating virtually, have you wondered what will happen to your hair if you cannot visit your salon, any time sooner? Even though the spread of coronavirus is rapid, the same won't be the case if you are in self-quarantine. While you are at it, you can actually treat your hair with some great nourishment at home. Here's how you can do so. 1. Use An Egg Conditioner © iStock What this means is that you should not just use your hair shampoo but also get a hair conditioner, filled with proteins and essential minerals, as it helps strengthen your hair follicles. All this while, the travelling actually deteriorates the hair quality but with conditioning, the ingredients in it will penetrate deep into your scalp, making your hair follicles stronger than ever. Try it out. 2. Don't Shampoo Every Day © iStock Now that you are self-quarantining, all your procrastination to not shower will pay off. How, you ask? Not taking head baths every day is actually beneficial for your hair. Washing your hair daily can dry your hair and also strip off your hair's natural oils. Hence, it is advised that you don't shampoo your hair as often as you do right now. 3. The Good Old Champi Days © iStock Sorry, but shampoo and conditioner will not be enough. Ask your mother for coconut oil, add some curry leaves to it and heat it on medium flame. This oil, when you massage it on your scalp, will leave your hair follicles hydrated and nourished. Moreover, it instantly makes your hair look thicker, believe it or not. 4. Hair Spa © iStock Now that you cannot go to salons and need to treat your hair at home because God knows where the virus is residing, start with hair spa at home. To do so, oil your hair first and let it stay for 20 minutes. Then, take a towel and dip it in hot water. Now, wrap it around your hair. The steam helps penetrate the oil deep inside your scalp. The next step is to wash your hair like how you would do it regularly. Use a conditioner post this step. Wash off your hair, step out and apply a mask made of two eggs and two spoons of coconut oil. Don't forget to massage your follicles when you apply this mask. Wash off after half an hour. Do this once a week, till the time you can't visit your salon! View the full article
  18. A perfume that lasts long can be really tricky to buy. With thousands of fragrances being available, choosing the wrong one from the lot is actually something that could happen to anyone. There isn't just the fragrance that you are buying that could lead to the foul-smelling misstep but there are more things associated with it like, its cost, scent, people and your patience level. If you want to avoid these common mistakes, you will finally be able to get the right perfume for your arsenal. Here's a list of the common mistakes that men make while buying a perfume: 1. Not Taking Enough Time © iStock You decided to lay your hands on perfume but after you tried it, the smell faded in the middle. Usually, you are given the strips to check the fragrance which you should avoid. Instead, spray it on your wrists. Then, take some time, probably move around for a while and then see how the notes unfold. It should meld with your skin's chemistry. This way, it will be easier for you to pick the right fragrance. 2. Limiting Samples Mistakes Men Make While Buying A Perfume When you test these scents, there are two key things to know. Come prepared with a note that you are looking at, for example, woody, musky etc. You should be able to recognise and tell the salesperson exactly what you need, in order to reduce the guessing time. Secondly, test them in a proper manner. Your nose will tire after smelling so many of them. Take intervals and then test it again. It will help determine if the perfume sticks well with you or not. 3. Neglecting Other Grooming Products © iStock You cannot just work with your perfume as other products in your regime also matter. Considering products that have fragrance add to your perfume as well. Every day, be it your grooming product or your moisturiser, the fragrance interferes with your cologne. The way to make this work is by applying all these products, for example, your hair wax or body lotion before you spray your perfume. Also, never use it immediately after your hot shower. Your scent's fragrance will sustain longer when you follow these steps. 4. Buying Perfume That Smells Good On Others © iStock Your friend bought a perfume and you instantly wanted the same one in your stash but there is a chance, that this perfume might not smell good on your skin. Therefore, it is important to research and check if the perfume that you have liked, is actually melding with your pheromones or not. A true scent will be on your skin no matter what. Hence learning about the notes stands important. 5. Finally, Storing It In The Bathroom © iStock Now that you have finally got hands on the perfume you love, don't just go and store it in your bathroom. This plays up with its longevity and sillage. We find it convenient to use the perfume but since the temperature inside changes, it can actually kill the notes of your perfume. It starts decomposing, changing colour and smells weird if stored at the wrong place. Avoid that and rather store it in cool, dark places. View the full article

  20. With the COVID-19 quarantine by and large in effect for the foreseeable future now, things will be going haywire. The pressure to work from home and stay productive, the constant bickering of siblings and family members, and the manner in which we feel trapped in our own houses, is surely going to get on our nerves. © iStock It is very easy under such circumstances to panic and actually lose sight of things that are actually important. Taking proper care of yourself is one such thing. Now, you may be washing your hands every now and then, and cleaning your hands with some really good hand sanitizers which ultimately, are actually quite harsh on your skin. We recommend you follow what this dermatologist says about taking care of your hands that have gone dry from constant washing. © iStock But what about your face? How do you take care of your skin when youâre under quarantine, and supposedly safe from all the external factors that normally cause havoc on your skin. Well, when youâre under quarantine, you need a skincare routine even more, simply because you lose track of things at times. Also, do you really want to take risks right now? © iStock Here are six super easy steps that can actually prove to be quite effective and useful for your skin, especially when youâre under quarantine. Inculcate A Sleeping Routine © iStock First and foremost, inculcate a proper sleeping routine and follow it. Since youâll be spending possibly the entire day at home, you may get complacent and do things lazily. Especially on the days when youâre working from home. Instead of staying up late at night, binge-watching your favourite shows, stick to a proper sleeping routine, wherein you get at least eight hours of sleep. Now, thanks to the quarantine, you actually donât have an excuse not to sleep for eight hours or more if needed. Wash Your Face At Least Twice A Day © iStock Given that you have to wash your hands quite a few times throughout the day, it would behove you if you wash your face as well. Wash your face at least twice a day, with a face wash that suits your skin type. Also, go for something that is friendly for the environment and also on your skin, otherwise, you risk drying up your skin, which will make it all itchy and sensitive. Moisturise Thoroughly © iStock Pick a moisturiser that suits your skin, and make sure you actually use it thoroughly. Even though you might think that there is no need to moisturise your face regularly because youâre always indoors anyway, you actually should be moisturising your face, on a regular basis. Given you will have to wash your face regularly, do not skip on moisturising. Avoid Touching Your Face Unnecessarily © iStock Your hands touch all sorts of surfaces and things through the day. God knows what all germs and pathogens they pick up. Health experts, medical professionals and even the WHO suggests keeping your hands away from your face. Unless it is imperative and an unavoidable circumstance, avoid touching your face. If just have to touch your face, to adjust your spectacles, or to itch or something, rub your hands with some hand sanitiser first. Exfoliate At Least Once A Week © iStock This is actually somewhat a leisurely activity, but again, something that you should go for often. Exfoliate your skin using a slightly coarse cleansing agent. We suggest you go for something like multani clay, or some other form of clay. That not only helps your skin in maintaining its pH balance, but also gives it a thorough and deep cleansing. Stay Hydrated © iStock Finally, and this is the most important thing that you can do, keep yourself hydrated properly. Drink at least 2 litres of water every day, even though you may not feel thirsty that often. To take things to the next level, use a face mist, or some micellar water. View the full article
