  1. Who says that only the visible components of your attire have to be aesthetically pleasing? While a majority of men don't pay much heed to the colour, fabric, and the fit of their underwear, there does exist a bunch of men who put A LOT of thought into picking the right underwear.

  3. We live in strange times and weird things happen around us all the time. However, things become even more mind-boggling when stranger things begin to make sense. In 2016, we heard a Meerut based cleric report that his wife was threatening to commit suicide if he didn't shave off his beard. If you find that weird, then read this. A Times Now report has shared that a 23-year-old woman from Madhya Pradesh has filed for divorce from her husband, because her 25-year-old partner refused to shave and bathe for 7-8 days at a stretch. (c) Reliance Entertainment The couple married last year, and upon hearing their mutual plea, the Bhopal family court has asked them to live separately for six months before granting them a divorce decree. via GIPHY A court counsellor Shail Awasthi told PTI, “Women now-a-days are separating from their husband over petty issues. This woman, who hails from Barigarh near Bhopal, complained that her husband stinks and when she asks him to bathe, he wears perfume to beat the odour.” via GIPHY Well, that's something. And regardless of the absurd premise for seeking divorce, it kind of still makes sense. In a way, this is sort of a life lesson for men to take their personal grooming needs more seriously. As we can see, nowadays even grooming or lack of it can make or break the deal, and honestly no woman or man likes a stinking, shabby partner. So, we can't really blame this woman, can we?
  4. Striking the perfect balance of casual and formal at work especially in the Summer can be difficult. Besides, at work, you don't want to make blunders especially when it comes to what you wear. So, here are some fashion mistakes that you might be making at work and probably should avoid: 1. Too Many Accessories © Getty Images Bold accessories and accent pieces are important to give an added flair to the outfit, but remember to not go overboard with trinkets. We recommend counting up all your accessories — patterned shirt, colourful tie, pocket square, cuff links, bracelets, rings, funky socks, etc. Too many accessories look rather too funky, especially in a professional setting. Limiting your ensemble to 3 or 4. The more restrained you are, the more your bolder accessories will shine. 2. Oversized Clothes © Getty Images Baggy clothes don't hide fat contrary to popular belief. Baggy clothes basically do nothing good for you. It's better to get rid of them. They look out of place in a professional setting. And baggy clothes will make you feel super hot in the Summer and you'll be sweating in no time. 3. A Visible Undershirt © Twitter Just like your boxers, the undershirt should never be visible. If you like leaving a couple of buttons undone, opt for a v-neck undershirt so that it stays hidden from sight. 4. Baggy Trousers © Getty Images Baggy trousers do two things well: they make you look shorter and they make you look sloppy. Also, they get ripped from the bottom easily. Try for trousers with a break at the ankle. 5. Undone Shirt Buttons © Getty Images Wearing a shirt buttoned up all the way can look odd without a tie, however, an unbuttoned shirt with more than buttons looks sleazy and unprofessional. 6. Satin Shirt © Getty Images Wearing satin shirts is like inviting a fashion disaster in the Summer. Not only are you going to sweat profusely but you'll also stink and the worst part is that it'll all be visible, because satin shows.
  5. People say there's something good in everything. I guess the writers of the show 'Californication' had this in mind when they wrote its script. We have a male protagonist who drinks like there's no tomorrow, smokes like a chimney, occasionally does drugs, sleeps with random women, pisses people off, and can never get his shit together. via GIPHY But, no matter how much you try, you just can't hate his guts. In fact, you would find his antics charming. He's a fucked up guy who lands himself in fucked up situations but somehow manages to come out of it using his charm. We're talking about Hank Moody, the writer who can't write. His cheeky smile, dry sense of humour, and the will to enjoy life just won't let you hate him. via GIPHY Let's see what we can learn from his fucked up yet adventurous life that can benefit us in the real world: 1. Never Say Never Karen, the love of his life, was no longer with him. But he didn't give up and always tried to make himself a better person so that he could deserve her. via GIPHY That's what dreams are for. Don't stop chasing them and always make yourself better each and every day to achieve them. It could be applicable to anything; career, love, passion, or hobby. Don't give up just because there are hurdles on the road. Get yourself up, dust off, and keep going until you achieve them. 2. Never Stop Living For Yourself The man did whatever he wanted to do, whatever he thought would give him just a glimpse of happiness. He slept with random women, drank his guts out, and never gave a **** about what people thought of him. He was simply looking for happiness in his own ways. He didn't participate in any rat race and didn't live life by society's rules. via GIPHY Whatever you do in life, keep your happiness a priority. You don't owe anything to anyone, so work towards being happy. Live for yourself and you might just enjoy life. 3. Don't Let The Child Within You Die Behind Hank's occasional portrayal of a matured persona, there was a child who came out every now and then. And that was the child which made him fun. via GIPHY Never become too serious in life. Plan your tomorrow like a matured man but live your today like a child in Disney land. It's your innocence and the eagerness to have fun that should never die. 4. Be Calm On most situations, you wouldn't see Hank agitated or anxious, no matter how bad it was. He was (almost) always calm, composed, and believed in thinking of a solution instead of worrying about the situation. That's what you need to be if you want to have a smooth life. Worrying doesn't solve anything and being anxious doesn't make the situation any easier. Be calm, MADAFAKAAAA. 5. Love Like Your Life Depends On It No matter how much of a p***y eater Hank was, he never cheated on Karen. He never stopped loving her. He never thought of loving someone else. If you're going to love someone, give it all. via GIPHY Feel the pain, the pleasure, and the journey of this shitty thing called love. It's always worth it, irrespective of how it ends. Never be afraid to love, find someone who makes you happy, and love her like she's the happy ending of your life! Hank is the guy who would live for himself but would die for his loved ones if needed. Be that guy!
  6. You have to admit, the most exciting part about having a crush on someone is not knowing whether or not they like you back! The 'what ifs' usually rule your mind more often than not and you can't help but process a lot of assumptions at one go. The most blatant one though is figuring out how to get closer to the one you're crushing on. Not in a creepy way of course, but closer maybe emotionally, physically and proximity-wise. © Fox Star Studios We believe the only way to get definitive answers is not to sit there and assume what she's thinking but to be pro-active and act on what you already know or want to know! You should also give them subtle hints about that the fact that you're crushing on them and if feelings are mutual, you've already laid the groundwork for yourself! Hence, here are 5 ways that work like a charm in helping you get closer to your crush! (1) Follow Them On Social Media But Don't Be A Creep If you've met them once or twice, sending them a friend or follow request shouldn't be a problem. They'll surely accept it if you they know you. Once they have accepted your request, don't go nuts stalking them! I mean yes you can take a look at their profile etc. but make sure you don't 'like' anything accidentally. Also, stay away from creepy messages through DMs. That's just a straight up no! What you can do in fact is figure out what their interests and hobbies are through their profiles and use them to find a common connect. © Pinterest (2) Use Things In Common To Connect It's easier to start a conversation with someone you have something in common with than to aim in the dark. By that I mean if you find out she loves dogs and you do too, maybe strike up a conversation on love for animals or dogs. But if you don't like dogs, don't pretend you do or you'll be 'catfishing' her instead. Find what she loves doing, and if it's common with your interest and then strike up a conversation. © AA Films (3) Strike Up A Conversation Now, that you've made sufficient contact over social media with her, it's time to strike up a conversation on anything you may feel can connect you two. Don't push it though. Start the conversation slowly and steadily and build it up as you go forward. Figure out what's on her mind, try and be mildly sensitive and humorous about general stuff and try getting to know her better, once you establish a solid base. © Pinterest (4) Have A 'Memeship' Maybe your conversations don't last too long or happen as often as you want them to. That doesn't mean you go absolutely lull and silent. You can still continue to drop by her DMs with funny meme's that can make her laugh, or start a short conversation either on the meme or on the day in general. Having a memeship with someone you like is healthy and sometimes necessary. Although, be careful of the kind of content you send her through those memes. It shouldn't be something that offends her. © Twitter (5) Ask Them Out On A Date Once you've established a basic flow of communication through conversations, social media poking and memes, you can definitely move forward and ask her out on a date. Either you can ask her out for a coffee because that's a safer option than asking her out for drinks. If you do ask her out for drinks, it'll in all probability fall under the assumption of you wanting to have *** with her later. Well, most times it does. But she's your crush, so I am sure you'd like to take her out and get to know her for real before any other need for intimacy arises. So, ask her out for a nice cup of coffee, lunch or even dinner and I am sure she'll say yes! © Instagram Social media has become a necessary tool to establish any kind of communication and you need to know how to use it well if you want to get to know someone better. Don't over-indulge through it, or harass someone from it but try and follow these steps above to decently introduce yourself and your intentions, to your crush.
  7. Summer months mean the previously pleasant metro rides are now sweat-ridden with no escape route. Without realizing it, you might be contributing to the stench too. The metro ride could be symbolic of your work and social life too. Imagine you hug your date goodbye and everything was great except she never texts you back. It was probably the stench she could feel when she hugged you. While it's normal to stink during Summers because sweating is normal, there are antiperspirants that help you fight the sweat. So, here is a list of antiperspirants to beat the heat: 1. The Deo © nykaa The good old deo is the most basic and instinctive antiperspirant that you could use. It's always good to keep a spray-on deo handy. The spray hits the skin rather effectively than a roll-on antiperspirant and minimizes stains on shirts. 2. The Antiperspirant Stick © nykaa The stick is usually an effective & perfumed antiperspirant for men. Usually made of more natural ingredients, the stick offers long-lasting protection against odour & wetness. The stick leaves the skin clean, fresh & comfortable. 3. The Antiperspirant Gel © nykaa The antiperspirant gel, much like the stick, fights the sweat and the stink in different forms. Its liquid-like formula spreads effectively and these products more often than not come in a natural formula which is good for the skin too. 4. Antiperspirant Wipes © nykaa These wipes come super handy in times of crises. If you're having a bad day with your body odour and no amount deo spraying is helping you, use these wipes to get rid of the clingy odour. 5. No Sweat Talc © nykaa Scented talc has two advantages: not only does it give you a lasting fragrance but more importantly, protects your pits against the sweat. The talc doesn't falter in giving deo-like protection, it's your dad's trusted weapon, trust it. 6. A Roll-On © nykaa An antiperspirant roll-on dispenses product through a standard roller that spreads a layer on to your pit for lasting protection against sweat.
  8. Don't you feel happy when your significant other greets you with a kiss or cooks your favourite dish? How you feel when you have a bad day and your partner lightens you up? Well, non-verbal clues are very important from your partner and they determine a healthy communication and emotional investment. So, we rounded up 10 men and asked them how their women made them feel special and this is what they had to say: Location- Andaz Hotel Photographer- Anand Gogoi, Stylist- Devanshi Tuli, Make Up and Hair- Shrishti Anand Production- Prapti Elizabeth, Models- Piyush Rathi, Deepika Singh, On Piyush: Shirt - Koovs, Trousers- Forever 21, On Deepika: Shirt (Stylist's own), Trousers: Zara 1. “We work at the same office but she drives home mostly without nagging about it” - Rishabh, 27 This sounds different! It's safe to say you're a lucky man who is treated as an equal. 2. “I really like it when she makes the first move” – Aakash, 24 Men really love it when women make the first move and engage her partner in making love. Even small gestures like a kiss or a back hug can begin things from her end. 3. “She holds my hand when she sees some random guy gazing her”- Brian, 23 This is a way to show that she accepts you and is really proud of it. Social acceptance is something essential when you are with someone. Location- Andaz Hotel Photographer- Anand Gogoi, Stylist- Devanshi Tuli, Make Up and Hair- Shrishti Anand, Production- Prapti Elizabeth, Models- Siddhant Roop Rai, Naina Bhan, On Siddhant: Zara India, On Naina: Perch 4. “Even if I cook bad food, she appreciates my efforts with a kiss on my forehead”- Rohan, 25 Certainly, a cute gesture like this is motivating but it is not a green flag for you to keep on serving bad food to her! 5. "She sits holding me when I have a bad day and her hugs calm me down no matter where we are ” – Naman, 27 No one really likes to feel lonely when they are depressed or sad. Negative thoughts cloud you and you start leaning towards pessimism. Hugs are such a good solution at this time as you feel worthy and calm. 6. “She has solutions for most of the problems I stress upon, in a silly manner” Aadyant, 24 From not finding your tie in the morning to your important files, she helps you out with small things that could sometime become a cause for bother.

  9. Even though they're always hidden from view and not meant for public consumption, choosing the right pair of underwear for every occasion is just as important as picking out the rest of your outfit. Making the wrong choice entails a full day of constant adjustments, uncontrollable itching, and sweat in the most uncomfortable of places. Nothing can ruin your day quite like having to dive down into your pants every so often, which is what makes underwear selection such a crucial decision. Despite what you might think, the one-size-fits-all mentality doesn't work when it comes to underwear. There is a plethora of styles, cuts, and fabric options out there to choose from, not to mention the various colours and prints you could go for. A well-stocked underwear drawer should ideally contain some of the best options in each style, allowing you to make a decision based on the day's activity. Of all the different styles out there, briefs are probably the one men are most familiar with. There is a sense of comfort and security associated with them, probably because these were what most of us wore as children. However, times have changed, and there are a lot more choices out there than the plain white variety we're all used to. Why Briefs? The most recognisable characteristics of briefs are the elastic waistband and no leg coverage. They usually extend from the waist and stop at the top of the thigh, providing excellent support to your nether regions thanks to their snug fit. This also makes them the underwear of choice for men who favour slim cut trousers or low rise jeans, as they're less prone to bunching up or rising up. They're also an excellent option if your job involves sitting at a desk for most of the day, as they end conveniently in the natural crease between your torso and your legs. Although they can't match up to boxer shorts in terms of freedom, which is why you wouldn't pick them to wear when you're lounging around at home, they're the go-to underwear style for the man on the go. With that in mind, here's our list of the best briefs for men who want to make an informed, tasteful and highly useful addition to their underwear drawer. These Are The Best Briefs For Men To Add To Your Underwear Drawer 1.

Out of the other swimming essentials; swimming goggles, swimming cap, to name a few, swimming trunks make for the most requisite ones.

Quick Drying Ability: As much as the water babies like to spend time inside water, having to walk around in a soaked swimming costume post the swim can be highly uncomfortable.

Durability: Whether you are a regular swimmer or someone who has a hip pool party coming up, nobody likes investing in a pair of swimming trunks which begin to lose their hue, as soon as you take the very first dip in the water. The chlorine present in water can cause the (poor quality) fabric to fade away, hence you need to make sure that you are investing in swimming trunks which are made out of good quality or chlorine resistant fabric.

  12. If you want to build a well-rounded wardrobe, you have to start with the basics. When it comes to the world of menswear, nothing is more basic (dare we say, essential?) than having an array of quality undergarments to choose from. For a lot of guys, underwear shopping simply means picking up a pack of boxers or briefs from the local store, because, well, that's what they've been doing their whole lives. In fact, boxers or briefs is an age old question that has caused many a spirited debate without, till date, resulting in an answer that both sides can agree on. Well, we actually have an answer to that raging debate - why not both? Enter The World Of Boxer Briefs Yes, that's right - there's actually an underwear style that is the perfect amalgamation of the comfort of boxers and the safety of briefs, and it's the boxer brief. They combine the positive attributes from both underwear styles to give the wearer the best of both worlds. They're the same length as your boxer shorts, which means they offer the same coverage. At the same time, they retain the snug fit of the brief, which means better support for your privates. In addition, the close fit makes them much easier to slot comfortably under your trousers or your jeans without them bunching up annoyingly, unlike the billowing boxers. We're not suggesting that you toss out everything in your underwear drawer and start afresh with only boxer briefs. Every underwear style comes with its own positives, which merit a place in your fashion forward wardrobe. You might want to hang on to your form-fitting briefs to wear during your workouts, and your loose and airy boxers to sport on relaxed days off spent lounging around at home. However, when it comes to everyday comfort and style, you just can't beat what boxer briefs have to offer.

  13. We've mostly seen those movies or read those novels where the guy loses the girl (or vice versa) because he's so focused on his career that he can't give his relationship the attention it requires. That always generates a bizarre moral dilemma. You feel happy that the character is succeeding in his professional life, but it's sad that he doesn't have time for stuff outside of his career. If you're an ambitious career oriented man, you can probably relate to these romantic fables. You don't want to give up your career, but you also don't prefer to be lonely. So, how do you find an effective life balance between the two? © MensXP 1. Get Your Bae On The Same Page Simple communication between two people is a crucial step in a happy, healthy, growing relationship. When you're super absorbed in your career, your interaction often jumps out the window. But if you want your relationship to progress and outlast, you ought to talk to each other. Share your concerns about balancing your time with your partner. Figure out ideas that can help in making things work as a couple, and be attentive towards your end goal. If your relationship is going nowhere, maybe it's not worthy to stress so much over the balance. © MensXP 2. Classify Your Priorities A 21st-century romance often means no one is at home to make dinner, and quality time can be difficult to find. Hence, prioritizing or recognising where you require focusing most of your attention on and where you can let go of things, can be a bit of a task. For instance, if things are stable with your job or business, it might be worthwhile to spend some time with your significant other. If you're worried about upholding a good reputation at work or of your business, and your love life is in a good zone, pour a little extra into your profession. Make it crystal clear to your partner that they're a very important part of your life. The base is effective communication. © MensXP 3. Balance And Appreciate Sacrifices Always remember that balance is created over long periods of time. Acknowledge and accept the relevance of your partner's sacrifice to your career and be willing to do the same for them and their dreams in future. No relationship works without going through sacrifices. Also, this is not something that can happen immediately. It will take ample time to recognise your wants and needs. Have patience! © MensXP 4. Practice Two Step Decisions No matter how headstrong your personality is; your decisions now affect each other. You have to recognise your partner has equal say in that issue. Be ready to handle the consequences of the other person's actions and respect their viewpoints. Don't forget that while you're focused on balancing your career and personal life, your partner may also face the same. If you will show unconditional support and respect, you're more likely to get it in return. The decisions taken mutually work more effectively than those taken on an individual basis. © MensXP 5. Apologize And Forgive A successful relationship requires patience and forgiveness. With this as the foundation, finding balance alongside your career is satisfying. Every couple will experience challenges and make mistakes during their relationship. But this is what makes us human. Hence, learn to apologize and forgive your partner. This will help you to build more trust and faith in each other while staying angry and holding grudges will worsen the situation making it more stressful for you. © MensXP Every relationship is a bit of struggle or rather a power struggle, but if two people are committed to each other, nothing can stop them. Just remember to always communicate and whenever any mishap arises, keep that in mind that you two are against the problem; not against each other.

  15. While relationships are taking a progressive turn every passing day, there are still people pointing fingers at some couples who've found their comfortable footing in one another. Not only is this hypocrisy but it's also an amalgamation of a complete violation of the right to privacy. What am I talking about? Well, Bollywood is setting their fair share of examples by dating people who're way younger or older and while that's endearing and very acceptable in society, many people criticise age difference like it's something illegal. © Instagram But to be fair, dating older women or younger men is a definite progression towards stable relationships as they're emotionally more grounded and binding and there's a maturity to them which makes them whole. So, in lieu of that, I am going to list 6 Bollywood relationships which have been mighty successful, even with a vast age difference lurking in between: (1) Priyanka Chopra & Nick Jonas © Instagram The desi-videshi pair met through common friends some time back and they just tied the knot 3 months ago. While Priyanka is 35 and Nick 25, they cherish and celebrate the 10-year age gap between them, even though they've been trolled for it tremendously in the past. But that hasn't deterred the couple's love or social media appreciation for one another in any way and we love to see them together, every now and then! (2) Sushmita Sen & Rohman Shawl © Instagram It feels like Rohman was a breath of fresh air in Sush's life. The actress seems very happy and content with her life right now and she has someone super supportive to share it with her. Rohman and Shushmita share a 16-year age gap, but they definitely do complete each other, in every way. From him getting along well with her daughters, to her supporting him at his fashion shows, to them making work-out home videos together, it really seems like bringing up the age gap they share is absolutely redundant! (3) Soha Ali Khan & Kunal Kemmu © Instagram The starlit princess and the boy-next-door fell in love with each other on the sets of 'Dhoondte Reh Jaoge' and the rest is, of course, history! After a long live-in relationship, the couple tied the knot in 2015, despite the fact that Kunal is 5 years younger than Soha. They have a beautiful daughter named Inaaya Naumi Kemmu and they really couldn't be happier. (4) Preity Zinta & Gene Goodenough © Instagram Although the age gap isn't much between the two, it is still frowned upon by many people who love to criticise relentlessly. But that doesn't bother Preity, who tied the knot with Gene in LA and they've been living happily since. I guess he's 'Goodenough' for her! (5) Bipasha Basu & Karan Singh Grover © Instagram The two had issues getting married as Bips' mom was against her marrying someone who is 4 years younger than her. But that didn't stop the happy couple from tying the knot and living happily since. They believe in unhampered PDA and never shy away from a lot of social media love! (6) Neha Dhupia & Angad Bedi © Instagram When Neha married Angad, she was trolled on social media for marrying someone two years younger than her but they also took many by surprise when they decided to announce their wedding on Instagram, and they looked mighty happy together. Best friends before, married now, the couple has had quite an astounding journey and their age gap definitely has nothing to do with it! So, if Bollywood can set a keen example of older women dating younger men, it's time you stop frowning upon it too and look for someone who truly makes you happy; older or younger, who cares, right?
  16. She is beautiful. She is gorgeous. She takes impulsive decisions, is eccentric. She makes you see the world in a new light. She dyes her hair, cuts it differently; she is vivacious, makes you do things you would never think of doing yourself. She listens to records, hangs out in flea markets. She is a force of nature. She is sexually adventurous. A flapper of the new era. She is elusive, she is an enigma. She loves with a passion. Presenting, the Manic Pixie Dream Girl! What is a Manic Pixie Dream Girl? The term was first coined by film critic Nathan Rabin in 2007, after a viewing of “Elizabethtown” where he found Kirsten Dunst's character to have been reduced to a troupe of the quintessential, unearthly woman who saves the lead character. He defines it as “that bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures.” Claire Colburn (Kirsten Dunst) is the pure form of the MPDG; she is bright, unconventional, funny, extremely beautiful. She helps Drew (Orlando Bloom) come to terms with his father's death, helps him in mysterious ways and seems to connect to him on a cosmic level. © Cruise/Wagner Productions/Vinyl Films/Paramount Pictures The Manic Pixie Dream Girl: She elicits interest, a light to dispel the shadows away. A ray of sunlight in the night of your life. On paper, she seems perfect. The concept is cute. Romantic. But does it filter into the real world? No. She is a myth. An ideal perpetuated by movies. The real-life implications of a Manic Pixie Dream Girl are problematic. Why? Read on. Following Claire (Kirsten Dunst) from “Elizabethtown”, Sam (Natalie Portman) from “Garden State” is another great example. Think death-obsessed heroine Marla Singer (Helena Bonham Carter) from Fight Club. Shalini (Preeti Zinta) from Dil Chahta Hai is an example of the trope. © Excel Entertainment So is Tara (Deepika Padukone) from Tamasha. Heer (Nargis Fakhri) from Rockstar. Why? Heer is an inspiration for Jordan (Ranbir Kapoor); when she rebuffs him, he gains a purpose in life, his angst from the love not given makes him a better man, makes him look at his creativity for the first time. His heartbreak fuels his music. © Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltd./Eros International What do we know about Heer? Nothing except that she is that bubbly girl who does crazy things without a second thought and then breaks JJ's heart, and then returns only to have an unresolved ending. Tara is similar. What do we really know about Tara's life? Apparently, only that she is sad about losing Ved. *cue Heer To Badi Sad Hai* After that, her purpose in the film gets reduced to make Ved (Ranbir Kapoor) explore the complexities of life. To think beyond his narrow, 9-5 existence. © Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment/UTV Motion Pictures Both movies are brilliant, no doubt, but they feed the MPDG stereotype inadvertently. The (Unreal) Magic of the Manic Pixie Dream Girl For me, the Manic Pixie Dream Girl is a concept similar to the Sirens of the Seas; beautiful creatures calling out on the high seas, only to lead sailors to their doom. But this is where they differ: She saves him, unlike the Siren. The Manic Pixie Dream Girl's main goal is to lead the male character to understanding life, to provide him with another perspective, make him see things more clearly. Make him believe in love. Yes, an excellent notion. What happens next? Then, she just walks off the screen because her work is done! But is that only the only job of a female character? To help the male lead understand the complexities of life and just walk off? An ornamental fixture on the silver screen with no narrative and only used to alter the thinking of the lead? There's nothing wrong in helping the person see differently but the problem is that the MPDG character vanishes once her character has fulfilled that. Her narrative is never fully appreciated, nor is her help. In Elizabethtown, Claire has no worries of her own, she is a free spirit. She is an angel of sorts, helping Drew realize his true worth. © Cruise/Wagner Productions/Vinyl Films/Paramount Pictures “When you need me, but do not want me then I must stay. When you want me, but no longer need me, I have to go.” These words from Nanny McPhee seem to resonate with the typical idea of the Manic Pixie Dream Girl (Though Nanny McPhee isn't one :P). There's no story to the character, no beginning, no end. No character development whatsoever, they are only there to transform the main character. Why have her in the first place if just to use her as a plot device? Couldn't that have been done by the supporting actor or better writing? The MPDG is not a supporting character; it is a magical being, one who makes all your problems go away in a jiffy by showing how different life is than your imaginings. Like the “Magical Negro”: another trope used in movies, a saintly figure who teaches you about life. It is as bad as the “gay best friend trope”: a best friend who is queer, and has little or no narrative of their own, they there to boost up the heroine's self-confidence, help in a makeover or pose as her boyfriend. That done, there's no other dimension to the character. © Zucker Brothers Productions/TriStar Pictures The Muse: The Real Manic Pixie Dream Girl? This is not just about the story; the trope doesn't just end there. The MPDG paradigm perpetuates an unrealistic view of women; men keep on trying to find women who fit the bill. Someone unencumbered by her own problems, who makes life easier for you. But we forget that there isn't a woman like this: it only remains in our imaginations; a muse. A muse is an intriguing concept, yes; but will trying to find that elusive muse help in making your life better? No. The bigger problem is that it makes men believe that it is essential to have a guiding force in their lives for fulfilling their destiny and if she's not there, life isn't worth it. MPDGs are supposed to save the main character; they are to be their redemption. © Dune Entertainment/Fox Searchlight Pictures We are all trying to find the perfect person; one who completes us. This trope accelerates our notion. But in real life, is it feasible or healthy to burden one person with all your aspirations? To give them so much power over you? Like the adage goes: “We become what we see, we become what we read.” This kind of social conditioning from movies makes men think that the sole idea of a woman is to nurture them, provide support and not have any story of their own. That if she isn't the archetype of this dream girl, she isn't enough. © Mr. Mudd/Summit Entertainment Moreover, the trope also exhibits the essential need for help to understand the complexities and mysteries of life. Aren't men capable enough to do that themselves? Yes, they are. Men are capable of saving themselves. So are women. Aren't women better than playing only a supporting role in someone else's life? Of course. © Fox 2000 Pictures/Temple Hill Entertainment/20th Century Fox The MPDG propels this thinking towards oblivion; it makes men pursue an idea of this imaginary woman who knows them more than they know themselves. Is it possible? In movies, yes; in life; no. The main lead is seen obsessed with the character; she is his sole definition in his turbulent life. She teaches him to smile, to laugh, to see what he wouldn't have seen on his own; a crutch for his happiness. Yes, another positive thing she does do is make him realize his shortcomings, a newer way to embrace life. But what about her own shortcomings? What about the resolution of her problems? © Camelot Pictures/Jersey Films/Fox Searchlight Pictures/Miramax Films Furthermore, it makes women think that men will only notice them if they imitate the quirky, bubbly dream girl discoursing deep life lessons. That their only aim is to help in changing the man they are involved with and have no life of their own. It isn't the job of anyone to change another person: being male or female does not matter. If one wishes to change, they are more than capable of doing that themselves. Yes, inspiration is good, but it is not the sole reason for change. The Death of the Manic Pixie Dream Girl: The Anti-MPDG Manic Pixie Dream Girl is a fancy term, isn't it? There's a touch of intellectuality to it. But is it really? Sadly, the concept has been overused in popular culture so much that now characters which aren't MPDG get branded as her. Shoddy and lazy writing is the main reason for the popularity of the Manic Pixie Dream Girl. Writers give hardly any depth to this character, there are no aspirations of her own. She has flaws, but those flaws are a device to help the male character. She is an enabler, not a helper. The term which was created to call out the laziness and sexism in the film industry has been dumbed down to be conferred on nearly every other female character who is funny or quirky, Annie Hall (Diane Keaton) from “Annie Hall” or Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) from “Breakfast at Tiffany's”. © United Artists It led to the creator of the term to write an apology and call the term out on the sexist connotation it has garnered over the years. There's a vast difference between being eccentric and being a manic pixie dream girl. Eccentricity and quirkiness in female characters have started being equated to a Manic Pixie Dream Girl. As a result, characters which are well-rounded, wholesome and have their own stories also get trudged into the umbrella of the MPDG. © Jurow-Shepherd/Paramount Pictures We won't have any female character to be seen if we try carting off every quirky character in the trope. It's very easy to label the characters into the MPDG trope if you only concentrate on the eccentricity and quirkiness but tend to forget that there's more to a person than only their eccentricity. Coming back to Sam from “Garden State”, the movie, a brilliant one at that, perpetuates the idea of Sam as the saviour of Andrew (Zach Braff), but that is the only thing she does in the whole movie; show Andrew that life can be so different. Though she herself is a compulsive liar with epilepsy, that part of the story remains shrouded in shadows. © Camelot Pictures/Jersey Films/Fox Searchlight Pictures/Miramax Films Of course, a movie has to be told from a perspective, but why not add the stories of the main characters to the narrative? Why not create a wholesome story where both the characters help each other and have individual perspectives? Sam is that beautiful enchantress, that elusive dream of the woman who will help Andrew. “You gotta hear this one song — it'll change your life. I swear.”, Sam says while giving Andrew the earphones, New Shins' “New Slang” blasting on it. The wrong thing about the idea is that is where the development stops for Sam: we do not see her deal with her own problems more effectively, her job is only mentioned never shown, and she just screams into the infinite abyss for clearing her mind. Movies which try to subvert the trope end up glamorizing it: “Paper Towns” is one such example which tried hard to kill the MPDG tag once and for all but eventually ended up where it started: Margo played by Cara Delevingne, the crush of the main lead, Quentin played by Nat Wolff, disappears after one night of spirited adventure with him. © Fox 2000 Pictures/Temple Hill Entertainment/20th Century Fox This leads Quentin to embark on a quest to find Margo, his version of the perfect girl. When he eventually finds her, he decides that he that she wasn't what he imagined her to be. But the problem with the movie is that it returns to the notion of Margo being that elusive, magical being while in the novel by John Green, on which the movie is based, Quentin finally understands that Margo was just a girl like any other. In the novel, he realizes that he himself was responsible to elevate her to a status of a goddess of sorts, a vivid dream. The movie, on the other hand, makes a valid point of deconstructing the MPDG image but gives in to the idea at the end, Margo still remains that muse in Quentin's imagination, a creature who made him realize his own shortcomings. He does not really see her for what she is in the movie, something he does in the novel. It's quite easy to put characters in the trope. Holly Golightly in the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany's” is a watered-down version of the book Holly, the movie version swims dangerously close to MPDG category. © Jurow-Shepherd/Paramount Pictures Audrey's gamine roles have garnered quite the reputation for her to be included in the “Manic Pixie Dream Girl” bandwagon. But she isn't specifically a MPDG. Her character does have a story, a purpose and though she makes the hero realize his destiny, in that she develops too. © William Wyler/Paramount Pictures Sam, played by Emma Watson, from “Perks of Being A Wallflower”, seems like a MPDG but is actually not. Sam helps Charlie, but that is not her only persona; she is her own person, with dreams, ambitions and refuses to stick to the fantasy girl image. © Mr. Mudd/Summit Entertainment Hema Malini, the quintessential Indian dream girl, came close to the MPDG as Basanti in “Sholay” but in “Dream Girl” she rises above it. In both, she uses her brains and charm to fulfil part of her role. She isn't restricted to the hero's ideal, especially in “Dream Girl” where she dupes the main lead. © Pinterest © Pinterest The problem is that we see these characters from the perspective of the male lead, through his lenses, which makes them an illusion, it makes them a thing to be revered but forget that they have their own stories to tell. But it does help in looking at the problem first hand and helps in destroying the image of this stock character. Summer from “[500] Days of Summer”, the indie-loving, bespectacled, bangs-sporting heroine is perhaps the best example of the MPDG. © Dune Entertainment/Fox Searchlight Pictures The movie tries to show Tom's dilemma with Summer, who doesn't love him back, glorifies the MPDG yet again; he realizes that Summer wasn't all that special because she liked the same weird stuff he did, she was her own person. But the lesson is lost on the viewers (and perhaps on Tom as well). She turns into the anti-MPDG later in the movie, as she falls in love (but the guy is never shown) and we get to learn more about her. In doing so, the movie does deconstruct the trope in a small way. Unfortunately, Zoey Deschanel had become a living embodiment of the MPDG trope: nearly every role of hers seemed to be that exceptionally pretty, quirky, eccentric, “adorkable”, girl who loves having fun, is an idealized version of the hero's mind who gives a new perspective on life. © Elizabeth Meriwether Pictures/20th Television Thankfully, “New Girl” finally ended the dreaded and vicious cycle for her when Jess, the bespectacled school teacher realizes that her quirkiness is not that adorable to other people. Though it seemed in the earlier seasons that she was going to be that typical MPDG, delivering life lessons to the guy bunch at her new apartment, the series went on to focus on her other qualities and subtleties as well. In doing so, the series was successful in changing the dynamic of Jess' role and finally bringing an end to Zoey's typecasting. She was the Anti-MPDG. Clementine (Kate Winslet) from “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” is another example of the anti-MPDG. She says to Joel (Jim Carrey): "Too many guys think I'm a concept, or I complete them, or I'm gonna make them alive. But I'm just a fucked-up girl who's looking for my own peace of mind. Don't assign me yours." © Anonymous Content/Focus Features Clem is aware of herself; she sees herself for who she is and doesn't cater to the idea of the hero's life-saving memoranda. By doing this she inadvertently closes the lid on becoming a MPDG. The trope is dying, but it is dying slowly, agonizingly. It is taking its own sweet time to vanish. Perhaps, it is time to kill the Manic Pixie Dream Girl. It's time that writers start writing more solid, complex stories for that quirky girl and that sad boy. More importantly, we should move on from the concept as a whole in our lives; no one is going to save you unless you decide to do so.
  17. The first signs of ageing can be really agonizing. They can act as a reminder of our fleeting mortality and make us existential in no time. While we cannot control our life spans, we can, however, control these signs of ageing like scars, wrinkles, under eye circles etcetera. So, here are the first signs of ageing and how to stop them. 1. First Signs Of Sun Spots © Getty Images In our 20s, problems like sun damage start to become really apparent. The UV-damaged skin surfaces in the form of freckles, hyperpigmentation or spots. There are two solutions to this: incorporating a working retinol product in your routine which will try to reduce these spots and secondly using regular SPF to prevent further damage from the sun. A sunscreen should be like your elixir, it's the best anti-ageing product you can buy. 2. Fine Lines © Instagram Spotting fine lines can be depressing. Your laugh lines, the lines on your forehead are just some of the examples. Ageing leads to less oil production in your skin which makes your skin prone to dryness and lines. Avoid using powders on your face, they tend to absorb all the oil and moisture. Instead, get a good moisturizer for your face. 3. Dullness © Instagram With ageing, the cell-turnover slows down. The upper layer of the skin starts to become dull. To nix dullness and get your glowing face back, you need: regular exfoliation with glycolic acid will enhance cell turnover and eliminate dry, flaky, dull skin. This means regular hydrating masks, routine hydrating creams and basically all the hydrating products that you can think of. 4. Puffy Eyes © Getty Images The under eye area has a layer of thin skin and with ageing the skin thins, even more, this makes dark circles or puffiness even more apparent. Cutting out on salt and alcohol helps. This leads to water retention. Use under eye creams, masks, and log in your hours of sleep to reduce puffiness. 5. Dryness © Getty Images Dry skin is the most apparent symptom of ageing. The most obvious recommendation—moisturizer needs to be your BFF. "Your skin is in a constant battle with the environment to stay hydrated. Heat, sun, wind, air conditioning—even rinsing with water pulls moisture out of the skin. 6. Drooping Skin © Getty Images Young people get the plump, firm skin thanks to collagen and elastin, which gives structure for your face. Skin in the late 20s, begins to look less firm, around the jaw and cheeks making it loose. Again, for a situation like this, you need anti-ageing creams. They will work wonders for you.
  18. Considering the fact that it's the first thing we put on in the morning as we get ready to face the day, it's almost criminal how little thought we put into picking out our underwear. The same applies to underwear shopping as well - most of us just grab the same type we always buy, without so much as a second thought, and repeat the same process time after time. After all, it's only underwear, right? No one else is going to see it, so what difference does it make if it's the same style (and sometimes even colour!) that you've been wearing for years? Well, we've got a newsflash for you! Picking out your underwear is one of the most personal and private decisions you can make when it comes to menswear. After all, you wear it right next to your skin all day. It plays a vital role in ensuring that you feel comfortable throughout the day regardless of what you're doing. Making the wrong choice leaves you open to a whole host of annoying problems including excessive sweating, irritating itchiness, and repeated adjustments. So, unless you're okay with spending the whole day with your hands stuffed down your pants, it's high time you paid as much attention to what's going into your underwear drawer as you do to the other contents of your closet. That's not to say that underwear shopping has to be boring, pricey, or time-consuming. A little knowledge about the variety of underwear options available to you is all it takes to ensure your comfort every day. That's exactly what we hope to provide with this extensive guide to the best underwear for men, which will make underwear shopping as comfortable and satisfying an experience as the products themselves. But First, A 'Brief' Guide To Buying Your Briefs: 1) Fit: Ill-fitting underwear can play havoc with your daily routine, which is why it's extremely important to pick up the right size of underwear (especially if you're experimenting with different brands). If it's too large, you'll spend the whole day pulling them up. If it's too small, it'll cut off the blood supply to your nether regions, and you don't need us to tell you that that's not a pleasant sensation! 2) Fabric: Cotton is the tried and tested material here, but there has been a lot of innovation in this department in recent times, which means there are many more options. Various other cotton blends and fibres come with their own pros and cons. For a luxurious experience, you might indulge in some silk boxer shorts. Similarly, spandex or lycra trunks underneath your workout attire or mesh or lenzing modal underwear with your running shorts is a smart choice. 3) Colour: The world of men's fashion is ever-changing, and you're not limited to solid colours or simple stripes or checks any more. An attractive print might catch your partner's eye when things get hot and heavy in the bedroom. You can also sport printed boxers bearing the logo of your favourite superheroes or cartoon characters during a weekend movie marathon. Just be sure you don't mix up the two! 4) Brand: When it comes to underwear, most men tend to have a fierce loyalty towards a particular brand. We're not saying there's anything wrong with that, we just recommend keeping an open mind. Who knows, you might be missing out on the perfect fit or style by refusing to try out another brand's offerings! So there you have it, guys - it's time for an underwear overhaul. Broaden your horizons and restock your underwear drawer with a variety of styles, fits, colours and fabrics based on your particular needs! Looking For The Best Underwear For Men? Here's A Helpful Guide 1. Saxx Men's Fiesta Boxers © Amazon Let's start on an upbeat note with a literal party in your pants, with these Fiesta boxers from Saxx.

  20. Summer is almost here, and it is bringing with it a hoard of issues that we absolutely hate. Now, issues such as sweat are easily treatable, because they are right there, in your face - but what you need to be really careful about are issues that are not so apparent. For example, sun damage. We Indian men are not exactly careful in general about matters related to male beauty, but we should be when it comes to sun damage, because it's more to do with health. © Getty Images Sun damage can bring forth a lot of issues that don't end at simple tanning. But it can be controlled easily, if one remembers to apply sunscreen before stepping out, every time. The trouble is, most of us ignore it. Here are 5 solid reasons why you should never step out without applying sunscreen, especially in Summer. © Getty Images 1. Sunscreen can work wonders while keeping skin cancer at bay. Dermatologist Dr Ronald M. Shelton (MD) says, "Sunscreen application is important any day you'll be outside. Men and women should use sunscreen to help reduce the numbers of skin cancers that you might develop later in life. Most skin cancers develop 4 or more decades after the injury, but the additional function of sunscreen, for which it is important for you to use it even if you're 60+, is that it helps prevent the sunshine's damage to the skin's immune cells that help reverse the DNA damage of the sun from years ago. Therefore, the use of sunscreen today can lessen skin cancer that has been trying to form since youth." © Getty Images 2. According to most dermatologists, 60-90% effects of aging start showing on skin because of sun. Elastin and Collagen are the base behind youthful skin, and both are damaged because of sun exposure. Using a sunscreen regularly can help you protect them, in turn keeping your skin young. © Getty Images 3. Sunscreen can prevent hyper-pigmentation and acne. When the skin is exposed to sun rays for a long time, hyper-pigmentation takes place, and leaves your skin super tanned, and sometimes red and burnt. Also, UV rays help bacteria grow on skin, resulting in acne breakouts. Applying sunscreen before going out can minimize both, to a great extent. © Getty Images So homies, please do your skin a favour, and always remember to do the needful before you step out.
  21. If you have a receding hairline that worries you at night and keeps you insecure in the day, then here's something that you could consider. Hairline tattoos, once unheard of, have recently come to the mainstream and for a good reason. © Getty Images Hairline tattoos, also known as scalp micropigmentation, is an advanced procedure for cosmetic pigmentation. Just like traditional tattooing, the needle injects pigments in the scalp in a minimally invasive procedure. © Getty Images Hair loss is one of the most popular and feared natural progression that men face. Other than treating it, or slowing it down, there are a number of expensive procedures like a hair transplant or getting an expensive product that seeks to maintain the hair you currently have. Scalp pigmentation varies from these options and provides you with a look that is unique and specially tailored to your skin tone and hair colour. © Getty Images It's not just a tattoo on your head, the process of scalp micropigmentation is very different from tattooing. It just looks like it's the same from a distance. Keeping in mind the needle and kind of ink used, a tattoo needle is large, making it imprecise for replicating the look and texture of hair follicles. Hairline tattoos use a microneedle that looks precisely like hair, and not a painted-on dot like most people assume. Tattoos, in fact, go a total of five layers deep into the skin, while micropigmentation on the other hand, only goes two layers deep. The reason for this is because the deeper pigment goes into the skin, the more likely it is to lose its round shape and spread out, resulting in an unnatural look. By keeping the pigmentation shallow, the look is controlled with the ability of the practitioner to shape it, while keeping it deep enough to maintain permanence. © Getty Images What Research Should You Be Equipped With? Like most procedures, an important detail to consider prior to treatment is the equipment used and the experience of the practitioners. A number of places do scalp micropigmentation, but the equipment used varies. So we're talking patching hair growth, in congruent hairline or a receding hairline, and the tattoos cater to all these deficits. How Does This Treatment Work? After deciding the style that you want and setting your expectations from the procedure, the treatment takes a couple of sessions to start with.

  24. With Indian summers just around the corner, it's time for Indian men to start upgrading their wardrobes in order to beat the heat and look their fashionable best. This can be a singularly challenging task since adorning an ensemble that won't just make you look good, but will also help you combat Indian summers, all the while ensuring that you feel comfortable in that ensemble, isn't easy. Fortunately, we have made that task easier for you by conducting the proper research and compiling a list of some comfortable and stylish sleeveless t shirts for men. We cannot change the weather for you, but what we can do is get you the best gear to adapt to it. Now before you invest in a sleeveless tee for yourself, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind. Let's get you acquainted with the essentials: 1. The fit: You might be mistaken if you think that the fit of a sleeveless tee isn't really a matter of much concern. In reality, it's incredibly easy for your sleeveless t shirt to be too loose (often the case when you buy a size too large). So, make sure that you go for a fit that is comfortable and relaxing, but at the same time, isn't too large so as to draw attention for all the wrong reasons. 2. The colour palette: In this afflicting heat, no one wants to be further tortured by the sight of tacky coloured clothes! So, avoid wearing colours that are too bright or blinding. Also, don't go for dark colours as they tend to absorb more heat than other shades. Colours like white, grey, beige, and even light blue make most sense to invest in. 3. The material: The fabric composition should always be your concern when shopping for any kind of apparel. After all, the material of your clothes should be breathable so that your body doesn't feel stifled. When it comes to making a decision and choosing the best material available, cotton, especially Supima cotton, makes for a great and reliable alternative. So without further ado, and keeping the above three factors in mind, here is a list of 10 of the best sleeveless t shirts for men that will make you look AND feel cool. 1. Jockey's Sleeveless Cotton Ribbed T Shirt © Ajio For all those men who want to keep things simple, this solid navy blue sleeveless t shirt from Jockey will help you keep things low-key.

  25. As one of the original eight teams that were established for the first season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) first in 2008, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have had a lot of experience in the league but not the silverware to boast about through the years. While having made it to the IPL final in 2009, 2011 and 2016, RCB have never won the trophy. Ever since the beginning, the team has seen some brilliant players like Rahul Dravid, AB de Villiers, Kevin Pietersen and now Virat Kohli, lead the squad in red and gold but have failed to win the tournament even once, making it one of three original franchises to have never lifted the cup. Last year, in the franchise's eleventh season in the league, Virat Kohli's men consisted of an outstanding coaching staff. With former Kiwi skipper Daniel Vettori and Ashish Nehra as their bowling coaches and the World Cup winning coach for Team India, Gary Kirsten looking after the batting department, there was a lot of experience backing up RCB. The roster was loaded with big hitters like de Villiers, Brendon McCullum and King Kohli himself and a unique blend of spin and fast bowlers like Yuzvendra Chahal and Australia's Nathan Coulter-Nile, who are wicket-hungry and in their prime shape. However, despite all the experience, skills and talent aboard, the Royal Challengers were not as good as they appeared on paper. Injuries, bad judgement calls and the lack of team chemistry on their part made Bangalore one of the worst teams of the league that did not even qualify for the playoffs and were at the third last position on IPL's points table, just two points above the Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals), which was the worst team of them all. After their season ended on a rather forgettable note, Kohli expressed his displeasure with the team's performance in a tweet: I really believe in the concept of, "you either win or you learn". We fought hard and gave it our all but one thing is for sure, next season we definitely will bounce back stronger than ever with our learnings from this season. Take care. @RCBTweets #RCB #IPL2018 pic.twitter.com/b0QM9chRAN — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) May 24, 2018 Kohli made a pledge to the RCB fans that they would look to make the necessary changes and try their best to be better this season and it looks like the management is dedicated to keeping that pledge. During the IPL auction ahead of the twelfth season of the league, RCB spent a total of Rs. 16.35 crores out of their purse of Rs. 18.15 crores on buying talents Shivam Dube (Rs 5cr), Shimron Hetmyer (Rs 4.2cr), Akshdeep Nath while retaining the core members of the team like Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Parthiv Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal. Squad: Virat Kohli (C), AB de Villiers, Parthiv Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Kulwant Khejroliya, Washington Sundar, Pawan Negi, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Moeen Ali, Mohammed Siraj, Colin de Grandhomme, Shimron Hetmyer, Devdutt Padikkal, Shivam Dube, Heinrich Klassen, Gurkeerat Singh, Himmat Singh, Prayas Ray Barman, Mandeep Singh
