  1. Do you recall the days when crime shows were a thing on TV and we'd sit through the entire episode just because it soothed our souls immensely when the culprit was brought to justice? Well, those were the days, but they are in the past. Now is the time for sanskari criminals who carry out crimes, but with consideration. Take this one incident of robbery in Brazil for instance. A video of a robbery at a pharmacy store in Brazil has gone viral because of this 'sweet' criminal who refused to take money from an elderly customer present in the store and kissed her on the forehead instead before leaving. Watch the video here. The CCTV footage shows how the two robbers enter the store and threaten the man at the cash counter before one of them starts to gather all the money. In the meantime, the other robber can be seen talking to an old lady who is offering her money to the dude. This man, however, refuses her offer and kisses her on the forehead as a sign of respect and affection. © Twitter While the robbers took off with almost $240 and are still at large, the store owner Samuel Almeida in an interview said that the female customer had approached one of the robbers and offered her money. Instead, he kissed her and said, “No, ma'am, you can be quiet, I don't want your money.” After witnessing all this sweetness, now we need a dose of “chain se sona hai toh jaag jao...” just so that we don't make it a habit to expect such sweet gestures from every criminal out there. People too have found this footage endearing...besides other things.
  2. One of this year's greatest hits, 'Gully Boy' was more than just an entertainment flick. Starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt as the lead pair, the film touched a million hearts through its narration of the journey and struggles of street rappers in Mumbai. But, if there was another thing that caught people's attention in the film, it was Ranveer's sensational performance as a rapper. The track 'Apna Time Aayega' from the film became an anthem of sorts, that not only united underground rappers from across the country, but even those who enjoy and appreciate the art. © Excel Entertainment Given the popularity and the reach of the song, multiple organisations have given the song their own spin in order to send out a number of messages to the public. Most recently, a Delhi traffic cop adapted the famous rap to deliver a message about respecting traffic rules. Check out the awesomeness here: Such a cool cop ..@Nitisha_Kashyap pic.twitter.com/L70pfPHGGP — pallavi ghosh (@_pallavighosh) June 18, 2019 But that isn't even the best part. What's insanely awesome is the way the cop has scripted the lyrics and delivered the rap at a single go with so much finesse, and we can't help but admire this talented man! What a creative way of sending the message across, when you can't help but hear it all out.

  4. The entire country was just catching up to why the hell JCB excavators are everywhere right now, but desi Twitter has already come up with a new meme and I have to say, it's way better than the #JCBKiKhudai memes. The new money meme (What is the official meme name?) is here and it's the most relatable meme I've seen, to be honest. Desi meme-makers have taken something simple and turned it into quite a hilarious thing. The meme basically consists of two pictures - one of a stack of â¹500 notes, and the other is a single, lonely old â¹100 note - and people are giving it the context in the sense of expensive and cheap things. Okay, that doesn't sound that funny but it's a little difficult to sum it up, so I'll just show how brilliant it is and why literally every single person could see that meme and say 'I feel that, bro'.

  5. Entertainment, Entertainment, and Entertainment - these are the three qualities that are needed to attract a viewer to come to the theatres. So far, 2019 has been pretty fruitful for Bollywood. We have had films like 'Gully Boy', 'Uri: The Surgical Strike', 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi', 'Kesari', and 'Luka Chuppi' which were intensely appreciated by the audience. Interestingly, the masses have gotten a flavour blend of both intense and light-hearted movies. May was a blend of romantic and political movies. This month, we've had PM Narendra Modi's biopic, which was released post the elections to much fanfare. We also got to see stories that throw light on incidents that are not known to us in detail, like Arjun Kapoor's 'India's Most Wanted', which is inspired by the true events of the capture of terrorist Yaseen Bhatkal. After such an intense end to May, it's time to start the next month with a bang, as viewers are waiting with bated breath to see Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif's 'Bharat'. June 2019 doesn't have a big line up, but we can assure you that the movies in the pipeline have something interesting to offer if you are a movie enthusiast. Let's look at the movies which should be on your must-watch list: 1. Bharat Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are back and viewers are in awe of their chemistry ever since they were first seen together in 'Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya'. 'Bharat' is an upcoming drama film which is about a journey of a man and the nation together. Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Disha Patani, Tabu and Jackie Shroff will be seen sharing the screen in this film. For a Salman Khan fan, the movie is bound to be a visual delight as it will show the actor in different avatars. We are not really sure about the content but we can blindly make a bet that it will fare well at the box office. Are you all set for a roller-coaster ride on June 5th? 2. Kabir Singh Shahid Kapoor is back in the game and how! Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer, 'Kabir Singh', is a remake of the Telugu film 'Arjun Reddy'. The trailer has already generated a lot of anticipation for the film and the viewers have appreciated Shahid for his intense acting. We are sure that comparisons will be drawn but it will be worth the watch. 3. Article 15 © Ayushmann Khurrana/Twitter A movie featuring Ayushmann Khurrana can't be taken for granted as the actor never goes wrong in taking up his scripts. It will be interesting to see what the actor has to offer this time. 'Article 15' is scheduled to release on 28 June, this year and the icing on the cake is Anubhav Sinha taking the director's seat. Ayushmann will be seen essaying the role of a police officer for the first time in this film. A stellar cast that includes Isha Talwar, Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra, M Naser, Ashish Verma, Sushil Pandey, Subrajyoti Bharat, and Zeeshan Ayub will also add to the film. Which film are you vouching for? Let us know in the comments below!
  6. In a society where people don't want to 'meddle' or interfere in others' affairs, even if that 'affair' means someone dying on the road, can we imagine people going out of their way to help someone who is a complete stranger? Can we imagine someone coming forward to actually help instead of clicking pictures and recording videos? Ask yourself guys, How often have you gone beyond your way to help a stranger? But, Babu Muddrappa is different and probably that's the reason he deserves all our respect. © BCCL Babu Muddrappa, just like any other day, was driving his auto in Bengaluru. On April 15, while looking for passengers, his life changed in a way even he didn't expect. Babu saw a pregnant woman lying on the road, screaming in pain. Although there were a lot of people standing around the woman, nobody came forward to help. So without thinking twice, Muddrappa rushed the pregnant woman to a nearby hospital, but due to lack of facilities she was referred to CV Raman Hospital. Since the woman could barely speak and refused to give details about her family, Babu admitted her with whatever money he had at the moment. © Pexels Thanks to Babu's selflessness, the woman reached the hospital in time and gave birth to a baby girl. However, what happened next broke our heart, but also raised our respect for Babu. The baby was facing trouble breathing and the mother had abandoned the baby and fled the hospital. Babu wrapped the baby in a cloth and drove his auto as fast as he could, to take her to another hospital in Shivajinagar for better treatment. He used all his savings to admit the baby and took care of her like his own child, while praying to God for her health. From getting milk for the baby every day, taking care of all the hospital bills to going to police stations in search of the missing mother, Babu did everything he could in his capacity. © Pexels However, after a few days, the baby's condition deteriorated and she passed away. He told The Logical Indian, "My heart broke. I decided to bury the baby myself, along with some police officers. In those few days, I had developed love and fondness for the baby." He further said, "I do not know if the woman who fled will ever be found, or what will follow. While I feel sad every time I think of the little girl who died, I am also aware that I did everything in my power to help both the mother and the child." People like Babu Muddrappa make this world a better place to live in.
  7. Honoured with the name, 'Hitman', Indian cricket team's opener, Rohit Gurunath Sharma is on top of the cricketing world for all the right reasons. Currently donned with the duty to lead the Men in Blue into international series in the absence of Virat Kohli, Sharma is also one of the most decorated batsmen of our nation. But things were not always so rosy and exciting for the now 32-year-old athlete. Coming from humble beginnings, 'Shaana', as Yuvraj Singh likes to call him, was just a kid with a dream a couple of decades ago. His family did not have the silver to make life easier for the righty but the will to see him make it big internationally, could be found in abundance. © Rohit Sharma Hailing from Nagpur, Rohit's father, Gurunath Sharma, used to work as a caretaker of a transport firm storehouse in Mumbai and could only manage to afford a one-room apartment for the entire family to reside in. However, the worst was yet to come. After losing his job at the storehouse, his father found it extremely difficult to provide food and shelter to the little boy and decided to send him away to his grandparents and uncles' place in Borivali at the tender age of 10. Even though they were unable to see their child daily, they made it a point to visit him at least once every week. Appreciating his unshaken passion for the game of cricket, his parents decided to help him make a career in the sport and wanted to get him in a cricket academy by all means necessary. Pooling in Rs. 50 his parents, uncles and their friends collected enough funds to help him get through the academy in 1999. At the time, Sharma used to be a bowling all-rounder with expertise in off-spin but his coach, Dinesh Lad, at the academy advised him to focus more on his talents with the bat. He even managed to provide Rohit with a four-year scholarship at Swami Vivekananda International School, an institution ten-times better than where he used to go before. Switching schools also allowed the young and talented cricketer work harder to reach his goals. © Rohit Sharma As for someone who used to approach the crease as an 8th or 9th down to opening for Lad's team at the Inter-School tournament and scoring a total of 120 runs on his debut had to be special and the rest, as they say, is history. Having his fair share of dips in form, Sharma has had a rollercoaster career before he showed his ability to shine on the brightest of stages in the past few years and it seems as if the 32-year-oldie has built enough faith amongst the BCCI selection committee to make him a “sure thing” for the upcoming ICC World Cup. Sharma, who belongs to the A+ category of pay grade for Team India, was also blessed with a daughter earlier this year and this was probably the best present he could have asked for.
  8. Realme is still a fairly new brand in the market that's yet to make a significant dent in the industry with its smartphone lineup. Of course, we've seen some really promising devices from Realme in the past like the Realme U1, the recently launched Realme 3, and more. But they come with their fair share of annoyances, often steering the consumers away to other established alternatives. Now yet again, Realme is trying to take a slice of the pie with its latest smartphone, the Realme 3 Pro. The Realme 3 Pro goes all out as an affordable mid-range smartphone with an edge-to-edge dewdrop design, a powerful Snapdragon 710 processor, up to 6GB RAM, and a lot more, all at a price starting at just Rs. 13,999 The Realme 3 Pro has a lot going for it, but does it pack enough goods to beat the like of Xiaomi at its own game of making a phone that ticks all the right boxes? Let's take a look. Design & Display © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Honestly, I haven't been a huge fan of Realme phones' design. It might be an unpopular opinion, but they all looked kind of dull and subdued to me at first glance. The Realme 3 Pro, on the other hand, looks really nice. If you look closely, you'll see a subtle pattern across the back, which reflects light in a unique way. Realme says the pattern is inspired by 'racecourse'. Their slogan for this phone is 'Speed Awakens', so it's the 'Pattern of Speed'. Geddit? I am not too sure about how the visual pattern would look on the other two colorways, but the Carbon Grey variant, which I've been using for the past few weeks, has a unique visual appeal to it. Other noteworthy design elements on the back of the Realme 3 Pro includes a vertical dual-camera setup with some yellow accents, and the 'Realme' branding which gives the phone a sporty look in my opinion. There's also a fingerprint scanner, but that's pretty much it for the back. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer The front of the phone is mostly occupied by the 6.3-inch FHD+ display with minimal bezels on the sides. Also, thanks to the 'dewdrop' notch, the Realme 3 Pro boasts a 90.8% screen-to-body ratio, and the display looks gorgeous. The display is certainly one of the biggest plus points of the phone. It's sharp, gets adequately bright even under direct sunlight and is just beautiful to watch videos on or play games. It's a great IPS panel and it's protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5, making it quote durable too. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer As an overall package, the Realme 3 Pro feels well built and snug in hand. All three buttons on the sides are well-placed and I personally had no issues reaching them. It still sports a micro USB port instead of USB Type C, but hey, that's not really a deal-breaker. Plus it makes up for it with a 3.5mm headphone jack. Performance & Software As for the performance, let me get it out of the by saying that performance on the Realme 3 Pro is absolutely a breeze. It's fast, snappy and very reliable when it comes opening and loading pretty much any app you throw at it. It's powered by the Snapdragon 710 AIE octa-cpre processor after all, so I wasn't expecting anything less of it in terms of the real-life usage. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer The variant which I have for review packs 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, but you can also choose to go with 4GB + 64GB or 6GB + 64GB configurations. I am sure, the performance won't take a huge hit. Really, the Realme 3 Pro did well during my testing, and it was a delight to use. Running games like PUBG, Fortnite, and Asphalt 9 is smooth sailing, and you'll be able to play them without any noticeable stuttering. Yes, the phone gets a little warm to touch after extended hours of gaming, but it's nothing to worry about as it won't get uncomfortably hot. The Realme 3 Pro ships with Android 9 Pie with Oppo's ColorOS v6.0 on top. Again, I am not a huge fan of custom skins on Android, let alone Oppo's heavy ColorOS. However, I enjoy using some of the customization features like 'Swipe-Up Gestures', 'Smart Sidebar', 'Assistive Ball', etc. Although one of the things which I absolutely hate about ColorOS is that ships with a ton, and I mean a TON, of bloatware. Yes, you can get rid of most of them, but seriously, I hate looking at those many apps on a phone which I just pulled out of the box. I really hope Realme does something about it in the future. © MensXP Since we're talking performance, let me touch base on the phone's biometric features too. The fingerprint scanner at the back of the phone is at the right spot in my opinion, and it's super snappy and accurate. The Realme 3 Pro also offers Face Unlock, which is just as fast as the Fingerprint scanner, but I ended up using the physical scanner for, you know, some added security. The speakers, however, are something which I am not a huge fan of. Realme 3 Pro has a single bottom firing speaker, which is very easy to cover with your while using the phone in, say the landscape mode. The audio experience was decent with good audio output, but I found myself reaching out for a pair of headphones. I am glad that Realme didn't get rid of the phone 3.5mm headphone jack. Good job, Realme! © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Camera The Realme 3 Pro comes with two cameras at the back. One is a 16-megapixel IMX519 shooter whereas the one one is a 5-megapixel shooter with an f/2,4 aperture. And on the front, the Realme 3 Pro sports a 25-megapixel selfie camera. Before we jump into the camera samples, I'd like to point out that I really enjoyed shooting pictures with this phone. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer I was recently in Mumbai for a couple of days, and I carried the Realme 3 Pro along with some flagship phones like the iPhone XR and the Galaxy S10e. Well, I must say that I ended up pulling out the Realme 3 Pro more often than I thought I would, which definitely says something about the camera quality. The camera app is also fairly straightforward and easy to use. There are a bunch of modes to shoot like Nightscape, Portrait, Expert, etc. Realme has also introduced a new mode called 'Ultra HD', which essentially uses software to create a 64MP image with bigger size and, of course, more details. Overall, I'd say that Realme has a commendable job with both the camera hardware and the software. I did say that the Redmi Note 7 Pro's cameras impressed me, but I think this one's equally good, if not significantly better. Yes, the Realme 3 Pro struggles to keep up in low-light, but I guess you can't have it all at this price, really. I'll let you take a look at the images and decide for yourself - Battery Life The Realme 3 Pro packs a beefy 4,05 mAh battery inside which in my opinion is a pretty decent size. It's slight smaller than the 4,230 mAh battery found inside the Realme 3, but I have no complaints with the battery life here. The Realme 3 Pro can easily last a day wit heavy usage, which includes the basic day-to-day tasks like web browsing, social media, usage, etc. and some intensive tasks like media streaming and gaming. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer I've noticed good battery life on almost all the smartphones running on the Snapdragon 710 chip, and the Realme 3 Pro is no exception. If you're not a heavy-hitter like me, then you can push the phone and get through even two days without charging since the phone has really good standby time. The Realme 3 Pro also ships with VOOC 3.0 20V charger inside the box, which can charge the phone from 0% - 100% in about 80 minutes, which is not bad at all. So overall, I'd say the Realme 3 Pro scores good marks in the battery life department too. On an average, you can get about 5-6 hours of screen on time, and charge it fairly quickly thanks to VOOC 3.0. The Final Say © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer It appears to me as though Realme is gaining more confidence with each product it's bringing to the market, and the brand's effort is clearly reflecting on the Realme 3 Pro. No wonder, the brand is leaving no stones unturned while going after Xiaomi's Redmi Note 7 Pro. After using it for an extended period of time, I can confidently say that it ticks all the boxes to make up for a worthy competitor to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro. Of course, the Realme 3 Pro is not the perfect mid-range phone, but it has a lot going for it for Rs. 13,999. You get a great FHD+ display, a powerful Snapdragon chipset, amazing battery life, and some capable cameras. The only area where I'd say it falls short is the software. And maybe some minor annoyances like the speaker position and a micro USB port. Well, if you are someone who can look past these qualms, then you'll be very happy with the Realme 3 Pro. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer The Realme 3 Pro, if you'll ask me, is a phone which I'll be happy to recommend to anyone who's looking for a phone under Rs. 15,000. It's a great Redmi Note 7 Pro alternative, and I think I'll start recommending the Realme 3 Pro more mainly because of how hard it is to get hands on a Xiaomi smartphone these days. So, if you are on a budget, and can't get your hands on a Redmi Note 7 Pro, go ahead and buy the Realme 3 Pro.
  9. They say that God often heeds the prayers of young kids. The reason cited is pretty simple and straightforward. Children are innocent and their hearts are pure, uncorrupted by the world's twisted ways of existence. Their earnest wishes, and innocence make them God's most favourite subjects. Not sure about the bit involving God, but everything that has been said about young kids being truthful and full of innocence and goodness is absolutely true. © Pixabay They will share their chocolate with you without a second thought, throw a fit of terror and shed a tear for the deer that lost its life to the leopard on National Geographic and hoot every time the hero wins over the evil monster and save the day! Above all else, kids are honest about their thoughts and selfless with the love and kindness that they have to share. A rather strange incident from Northeast is proof of all this that we just pointed out. © Flickr A little boy accidentally ran over his neighbour's chicken while cycling. Heartbroken and sad, the boy rushed the chicken to the nearest hospital along with all the money he had. A picture showing the boy carrying the chick has since gone viral on social media. The silent plea for help on the kid's face is heartwarming. We hope this boy and many others grow up feeling for every living being around them, and grow up to be young men and women who respect and care for every life on earth. The comments section of the post is filled with praises for the boy's kind gesture. A user wrote, “this kind of humanity, innocent and pure”, while another blessed the young boy in the comments. Many others have praised the little boy's parents for raising a child who knows how to care, while another user suggested that adults take a lesson from the kid. How a thoughtful act has brought so many people together.
  10. We always just look at the bad things about being broke all the time, but here's a story about the pros of constantly not having money in your bank account. This incident about a robbery in China has the thief coming off as the good guy. What a rare moment! The entire thing was captured on the CCTV footage from ICBC Bank in city of Heyuan. In the video, a woman is withdrawing cash at an ATM when a man wielding a knife walks up to her and demands that she hand over the money. Naturally, she did because she was terrified and gives the robber 2500 yuan, which is approximately Rs 26,000. Then, the robber demands to see her bank balance but after seeing that her account is empty and the 2500 yuan were the last of her money, he has a change of heart. After handing back the money to her, he's seen walking away smiling. A robber with a conscience? Who would've thought! Even though he turned out to be a good person for a second there, he was still arrested, and actually rightly so. The video went viral on Chinese social media with a lot of people surprised at this act of kindness. It was shared on Twitter as well, and people came up with a lot of jokes. Well, technically speaking, he is. I'm amazed! robbers are humans!ððð — Sahil Rahman (@SahilRa92056158) March 11, 2019 Shots fired.

  13. For every man there comes a time in his life when he makes lifestyle choices based on the quality of the products. Be it gadgets, footwear or clothing, choosing quality over quantity is their mantra for life. Now that labels and brands matter while every man buys clothing, it also matters what the brands actually make your clothing out of. © Getty Images Wouldn't you be disappointed if a sweater that promises it's cashmere is actually 90% polyester and 10% cashmere wool? And you're kidding if you say you wouldn't genuinely appreciate a piece of clothing more if you spot 'made in Italy' text on the tag and look down upon something that says 'made in China'. The question remains, how would you tell if the quality of your clothes is genuinely investment worthy? Well, all you need to do is follow these guidelines and you would be able to assess the quality of your garments properly: 1. Where Is It Made? © Getty Images Some countries have the advantage of being known to produce good quality garments. You'd rejoice if you spot a garment that says 'made in Italy' or 'made in France'. These countries act as brands on their own. But, does it matter? The answer is no. Most countries like China, India and Turkey have the technology to create quality garments as any other would. The only difference would be that the work-force in these countries comes much cheaper, resulting in heavier quantities of garments made at cheaper rates. Which is why only fast fashion brands like Zara and H&M consider them and the 'designer' labels stick to others. 2. Quality Lies In The Details © Getty Images Now that shopping for quality seems to be a policy that everyone adapts, the only difference is the details. An average user would opt for neat stitch, properly finished hem and quality that doesn't shrink or fade. We suggest you pay attention to details and finish of the overall garment and make your choice accordingly. 3. 'Branded' Doesn't Always Mean Quality © Getty Images If certain brands have allured you into the vortex of their shiny advertising but the product doesn't live up to it, it's time you learnt a lesson from it. While some brands have a reputation to make genuinely good quality garments, others are just famous for their advertising. Learning the difference between actual quality and endorsed quality is the key to getting a good product. Just because a certain brand is 'trending' and makes you feel updated with the upcoming fashion pieces, it doesn't promise quality. Only commit to brands after testing their product out. 4. Fabric Matters The Most © Getty Images Natural fabrics like cotton and wool tend to be more investment-worthy especially because of their qualities. Being superior to synthetics, these fabrics tend to be associated with being quality driven. The reasons why affordable brands have cheaper rates is because they compromise on fabric quality and use cotton blends that consist part rayon or polyester. Also, man-made fibres are harder to recycle. A quality cloth should ideally feel good, wash and wear well. But also, certain clothing like hoodies or sweatshirts are made from fabrics that remain of the same quality whether you spend Rs. 1500 at a reasonable brand or Rs. 30,000 at a high-end brand. Now that you've been educated well on how to figure out the quality of the clothes you invest in, make correct choices.

Ensemble number two was tux-inspired, but featured wide leg pants and an embellished skinny tie. © Getty Images © Getty Images In the last month, he's even worn an embellished suit with a fuchsia-lined cape at the Golden Globes. © Getty Images Back home, Ranveer Singh has never shied away from wearing ghaghras or lehengas. We think 2019 is going to be the year of gender fluid fashion and we support it completely. © Getty Images
  15. Ever since the Board of Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the schedule for the first phase of the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), cricket fans across the globe have begun placing bets on their favourite teams. The opening match between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has already raised the excitement as it pits two of the biggest cricketers Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni against each other. But, amid all the hullabaloo, IPL's upcoming season has been denied the star-studded opening ceremony that was earlier being used to kickstart India's cash-rich T20 tournament. The Committee of Administrators (CoA), headed by Vinod Rai, has decided to call off the opening ceremony in a bid to pay homage to the slain CRPF personnel who lost their lives in the dastardly Pulwama terror attack on 14th February. © AP In a touching gesture, the CoA has also announced that the budget allocated for the glitzy opening ceremony will now be donated to the families of the Pulwama attack martyrs. "We will not have any inaugural function for the IPL and the money budgeted for that goes to the martyrs' families," CoA chairman said. Amid a huge backlash following the ghastly terror strike, the CoA took the decision during a meetting on 22nd February. The committee was also expected to take a call on India's proposed boycott of Pakistan at the ICC World Cup in England & Wales. However, with the Indo-Pak scheduled for 16th June, the CoA deliberated on the matter but did not take any position for now. "The 16th of June is very far away. We will take a call on that much later and in consultation with the government,' Rai said after the meeting. BCCI writes to ICC regarding its concerns & commitments ahead of ICC events including World Cup. Concerns include security of Indian players, officials, fans. BCCI in its letter urges the cricketing community to sever ties with countries from where terror emanates. #PulwamaAttack pic.twitter.com/Wg2hepTrsk — ANI (@ANI) February 22, 2019 "In an e-mail to the ICC, we have expressed our concerns about the terrorist attack that has taken place. We are telling them that security of players and match officials should be appropriately taken care of. And number two, we must sever ties with nations from which such terrorism emanates. We will express our concern on an appropriate forum," Raid said.
  16. In the last five years of his tenure, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is known to have gone out of his way when it comes to holding bilateral talks with India's neighbouring states and their state heads. Be it smoothening out ruffled feathers or boosting the affairs of trade and defence cooperation, PM Modi has tried to work out a lot of matters of national importance with our international brethren. Prime Minister Narendra Modi held talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, in Seoul, earlier today. pic.twitter.com/bGWPQyfeq0 — ANI (@ANI) February 22, 2019 So today when PM Modi was welcomed by the South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Seoul, the Indian Prime Minister took this moment to express his gratitude towards Koreans, who have always been invested in maintaining a healthy relationship with the Indian subcontinent. PM Modi is in South Korea on a two-day visit to strengthen strategic ties between the two countries, and upon his arrival he also unveiled the bust of Mahatma Gandhi at Seoul's Yonsei University, along with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. The Seoul Peace Prize being bestowed upon PM @narendramodi is a matter of great pride for 130 crore Indians. It not only acknowledges the success of PM Modi's progressive policies and reforms but also signals the rise of India on the world stage. pic.twitter.com/fCKB1WjR5O — Amit Shah (@AmitShah) February 22, 2019 However, it is the Seoul Peace Prize that PM Modi was honoured with by the South Korean President that has got the international media talking. PM Modi accepted the honour and the prize, which he dedicated to the countrymen back home. "I believe that this award belongs not to me personally, but to the people of India. The success that India has achieved in the last 5 years is due to aspirations, inspiration & efforts of the people of India. On their behalf, I accept the Award and express my gratitude", said PM Modi after receiving the award. He further added that he wished to donate the prize money to Namami Gange project. The Seoul Peace Prize is dedicated to the people of India & our country's culture of peace and harmony. https://t.co/ymUdug3JYp — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) February 22, 2019 Namani Gange is a 'Clean Ganga' initiative taken up by the Union Government for the “abatement of pollution, conservation and rejuvenation of National River Ganga.” At the same event, PM Modi also touched upon the issue of climate change and terrorism at the event, and urged all the country to come together and fight off terrorism in the light of the recent Pulwama attack. We hope the funds are put to good use, and river Ganga is revived to its full glory at the earliest.
  17. The world could be a cruel, cruel place for those who are not fated to be born in a socially or financially stable family. Everything they want or need, comes with a lot of difficulty and hardship. While a lot of them get lost in the mundaneness of an average Indian to make a decent living and hustle to provide food on the table for the family, there are some who strive to achieve something a lot more greater. When her father decided to get her elder sister married, Poonam Sonune, a 19-year-old Pune girl knew that her family lacked the funds to carry out a decent wedding. So, she took it upon herself to make it happen. Having run in the 2018 South Asian Junior Athletics and winning the gold medal in the 3000m race, Poonam and her loved ones had complete faith in her abilities as an elite athlete. Her school sent her to Nasik to train under veteran athlete Vijendrasingh. Initially her father, who is an agricultural farmer by profession, bore all her expenses but failed to keep up with time. Her coach, Vijendrasingh then took the responsibility of raising money for her training and nutritional requirements through the corporate-social responsibility (CSR). After countless hours of training, Sonune decided to compete in the Pune Half-Marathon in order to get enough money to help her father organise a wedding for her sister. Surprisingly, the young runner not only participated in the event but also aced it. Giving every penny of the Rs 1.25 Lakh price money to her father, Poonam was able to realise her sister's dream of getting married. In the irony of things, Poonam could not be a part of her sister's celebration as she got selected for India's national roster for the upcoming South Asian Games, to be held in Nepal in March.
  18. Tennis, a perfect combination of violent action, takes place in an atmosphere of total tranquility. Arguably the most strenuous game of all has its own rulers, who keep on changing with time. Power definitely accompanies monetary benefits and tennis' biggest names are no different. 'The big three' in tennis - Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic - are the usual suspects when you think of any tennis-related list. But the clear off-court winner here is the Swiss Maestro who has in fact been the numero uno on this list for almost a decade and a half. Then there's also the most successful singles player in history Serena Williams. Her financial records are the envy of the town as well. But who are the others on this list? Here's a look at the wealthiest (from the past 5 years) active tennis players on the circuit: 1. Roger Federer (Rs 197 crore) © Reuters Topping the list as always, comes the GOAT, who has earned a total sum of $41 million in the last five years as prize money. Club that with endorsements and he becomes unparalleled. From Wilson to Rolex, Mercedes-Benz, Lindt and the most recent one, Uniqlo - an estimated deal of almost $300 million for 10 years - FedEx keep cruising on. According to Forbes, Federer earned almost $77 million in 2018, with $65 million of the tally from endorsements and appearance fees. Unsurprisingly, his off-court earnings from marketers are higher than any other athlete. 2. Kei Nishikori (Rs 127 crore) © Reuters Surprise Surprise..!! We are sure no one expected Kei Nishikori to take the number two spot in this list. But despite on not winning too many tournaments, his endorsements get him here. With only earning $1.6 million as tournament money, Nishikori renewed deals with Asahi, NTT, Japan Airlines, Lixil and Nissin over the last 12 months. All of which are sponsors for the Tokyo Olympics 2020. Sponsors would surely look forward to position Nishikori as the face of the Tokyo Games. Other sponsors such as Uniqlo, Wilson, Nike, Procter & Gamble, Jaguar and Tag Heuer are just a few of the brands that have helped him take his endorsement earnings to $178 million in the past 5 years. 3. Novak Djokovic (Rs 126 crore) © Reuters The world no.1, Novak Djokovic has earned almost $67.6 million dollars in the past five years as tournament prize money (which doesn't include this year's AO sum). Other than this, Novak swapped Uniqlo for Lacoste as his apparel brand last year, which almost earned him a kitty of $110 million dollars. On top of this, his commercial deals also include brands like Seiko, Asics, which take his earnings to a sum of $177.6 million. 4. Rafael Nadal (Rs 118 crore) © Reuters The current World no. 2, Rafael Nadal, again made a great comeback at the Oz Open this year, winning the runner-up shield. Despite being injured for more than four months last year, he managed to earn good $14.4 million of prize money, and with endorsements for Nike, Babolat, Richard Mille, Kia Motors, Telefonica, Banco Sabadell and Emporio Armani. That takes his earning to a high of $165.6 million in the past 5 years. 5. Serena Williams (Rs 88 crore) © Reuters Serena Williams, despite going on a 14-month break for her first pregnancy, is still the highest paid female athlete. Because of commercial deals with Nike, Intel, Audemars Piguet, JPMorgan Chase, Lincoln, Gatorade and Beats, the highest paid female athlete has earned around $90 million in endorsements over the last 5 years. Regardless of earning just $62,000 dollars as prize money in 2018, the leading Grand Slam winner stands tall with a total earning of $123.4 million.
  19. Those of you who love Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's soulful tunes are in for a bit of a surprise. And not a good one at that. The Pakistani singer has been accused of smuggling illegal foreign currency out of India, earning the amount out of illegal means, for over two years. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's nephew and the trendy folk singer has been issued a notice by the Enforcement Directorate for violating foreign exchange rules. He allegedly smuggled some American Dollars out of the country and there's a case pertaining to the seizure of undeclared US Dollars from him at the Indira Gandhi International Airport, in 2011. © Twitter While Rahat Fateh Ali Khan was busy swindling money, he wasn't really earning the big bucks through his music. One would think that would be the case but if you're smuggling cash out of the country, then you're definitely earning it through some corrupt means TBH. He smuggled Dollars over Rs 2 crore, over a period of three years and it wasn't through the music industry. © Pinterest Well, now as we're confused about what Khan may do about this situation, the agency wants a response out of the singer for the notice they've issued to him and if they aren't convinced with his response, he'll be charged 300% of the amount he smuggled (do the math!) and if he refuses to pay the following fine, the Enforcement Directorate can issue a lookout notice to him and stop him from performing in India once and for all. © Facebook Earlier in 2011, Khan was charged by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence, under the Foreign Exchange Management Act, for carrying a lump sum of money at the Delhi airport and not being accountable for it. When he was straight up asked why he was carrying the amount which was around $1,15,000 (81.99 lakh), he could not reveal the details. © Facebook His popularity hit a phenomenal high after his song 'Jiya Dhadak Dhadak' in 2005 but now it's unfortunate Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is in the limelight for such a scandal. We were actually looking forward to some more soulful music from him but I guess his intentions are 'jag ghoomeya' at the moment.
  20. The Lakmé Fashion Week 2019 opened with Gaurav Gupta's show titled "(Un)folding" on Tuesday, at the Royal Opera House. It was an interesting comeback for Gaurav to the Mumbai runway after four long years. © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik Gaurav's signature gowns, that are magnificent yet defining power in the truest sense, sparkled the runway. © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik There was also an interesting collaboration with poetess Navkirat Sodhi, who recited her original poetry suspended in the air, while dressed in a (traditionally) long floor-sweeping gown while models strutted on the ramp. With Tabu and Karan Johar as showstoppers, the show really did reach its peak in the end. Tabu wore a powder blue sparkly chikankari-worked gown, © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik while Johar wore a red blazer with silver and black embellishments on the shoulder. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Karan Johar (@karanjohar) on Jan 29, 2019 at 9:33am PST The curated range, which took three months to master, was vibrant with shades of ivory, powder blue, beige, rose, black, red, yellow and golden, and Gaurav used chikankari and brocade for the very first time and combined it with his signature origami-esque patterns.
  21. Akshay Kumar is ageing tastefully. From being one of the fittest father's in the industry to acting in raging action films and socially conscious-driven films, he never fails to surprise us. via GIPHY He's one of the few actors in Bollywood who's always been relevant. He keeps transforming himself and constantly surprises us with easily-relatable characters and that's what we like about him the most. via GIPHY And if something's coming straight from the mouth of this action-God, we're obviously following it. via GIPHY He was recently spotted wearing a Dolce & Gabbana yellow T-shirt coordinated well with a pair of yellow trainers. © Viral Bhayani Great combination, right? We agree. Except there's a secret message that comes along with it. via GIPHY Still don't get it? Look closely. © Viral Bhayani He's obviously asking us to save money. Learning to save money is an important life skill to have and if Akshay Kumar wants us to save money, we'll obviously get to it. *Getting a savings account made asap* via GIPHY
  22. Xiaomi's new TV segment kicked off with a bang last year and it seems like the company isn't slowing down anytime soon. The Chinese company launched a new iteration of the already popular 4K TV called the “MI LED TV 4X Pro”. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla It follows the same philosophy as some of Xiaomi's other products i.e. high end specifications at an affordable price. In fact, the Mi LED TV 4X Pro 55-inch is the only 4k TV you should be investing in 2019 because of all it can offer. It costs only Rs 40,000 and is probably one of the most affordable 4K TVs out there. Here's our review of the Mi LED TV 4X Pro: Design In terms of design, the MI LED TV 4X Pro is thicker, heavier and has a larger footprint than the Mi LED Smart TV 4 which was launched last year. Due to the larger footprint, the TV now houses the 20W stereo speakers that offers better sound output than its predecessor. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The panel itself as a metallic grey finish and has noticeable bezels are in line with other 4K TVs out there. You might miss the bezel-less/frame-less design from the Mi LED Smart TV 4, however we prefer a better sound output than a kickass design. The enhanced sound output improves the viewing experience which was one of the caveats on the previous model. Display And Performance © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The display off the Mi LED TV 4X Pro is 55-inches in size and has a 10-bit panel which supports HDR 10 content. In fact, this may just be the cheapest 4K UHD TV in the market that has support for HDR 10 content. The new panel also has better colour representation and can produce 1,056,964,608 more colours than an 8-bit panel. The panel also as a refresh rate of 60Hz which is great for console gaming on the Xbox One X. However, the TV has a response time of 6.5ms which is not great for online gaming but is more than enough for playing single player titles. HDR 10 content looks absolutely mind-blowing when keeping the price tag in mind. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Viewing angles have also been improved than the previous model as we didn't see any black patches when viewing content from various angles. This was an issue with the Mi TV Smart TV 4 that has now been resolved with the Mi LED TV 4X Pro. Having said that, in order to watch 4K content, you will either need an Apple TV 4K, Chromecast Ultra or a 4k Fire Stick TV. The TV does not have native support for apps like Netflix/Amazon Prime who also happen to be the only 4K content providers in India. The new 20W speakers at the back also improved the sound quality when compared to the previous iteration. The sound is now louder, clearer and refined which was our only complaint from the Mi Smart TV 4. In case you want to have an even better experience, you can always pair it with the Mi Soundbar and you can read our review here. The Xiaomi Mi LED TV 4X Pro is powered by a 64-bit quad-core Amlogic Cortex A53 chipset, which is accompanied by 2GB of RAM and a Mali-450 GPU. There is also 8GB of internal storage for you to store files locally. The remote that comes with the TV is identical to the one you get with the Mi LED 4A Pro. It uses Bluetooth for transmitting signals and doesn't need to be used in the line of sight of the TV. However, we still wished it came with a mute button as it really needs that support in case you get many phone calls or are having a conversation in the same room as the TV. Software © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Xiaomi TV OS or better known as Patchwall is what powers all the smart features in the TV. It works the same way as it does on other Xiaomi TVs but it also has the additional interface of Android TV. The UI itself is very reminiscent of Apple TV with tiles that automatically fetches your favourite TV shows or sporting events from your DTH. It's easier to find content on Xiaomi's PatchWall OS rather than browsing TV channels from the set top box. Having said that, Netflix and Amazon Prime are not available on PatchWall at the moment so you will need a device such as an Apple TV, Amazon Fire Stick, Chromecast or a gaming console that has support for native 4K content. There's also Chromecast built-in however it doesn't support Netflix either and Amazon has blocked Prime on any Google product altogether. If you want use a device, we recommend the Apple TV as it has every app you need to be a true cord-cutter. Ports In terms of ports, there are various choices you can use to power your home entertainment system. The Mi LED TV 4X Pro has 2 USB ports, 1 AV Input, 1 S/PDIF Out, 3 HDMI Portsï¼1 contains ARC), ethernet port and also has Wi-Fi support. The ports are on the left side at the back of the panel and can be easily accessed when not using the wall-mount brackets. You can use these ports to power a home theatre system using one of the output ports however we recommend using the S/PDIF Out for the best audio experience. The Final Say To be honest, the Mi LED 4X Pro offers more than it should for Rs 39,999. In fact, I personally own two Samsung 4K TVs that doesn't even have Bluetooth support. The Mi LED 4X Pro is only the 4K you should be buying if you want the best value for your money. It has multiple output ports, offers a 10-bit panel and a great OS experience. Yes, you will need to buy device like an Apple TV to watch 4K TV but even then it turns out to be a cheaper offering. Overall, we can confidently offer a 4X Pro to anyone who is looking to upgrade to a 4K TV and also wants to save money,
  23. Video game revenue has been on the rise for the past few years and it reached a new peak of $43.8 billion. That's 18% up from previous year and has surpassed the projected total global box office number for movies. The numbers were released by the reliable NDP group and Entertainment Software Association. In fact, we predicted this over two years ago as games like GTA V, Fortnite, Fifa 19, PUBG and others are literally taking over the world. The increase in Video Games revenue could be attributed to a variety of factors. Free-to-play games such as Fortnite, PUBG Mobile and even AAA games have implemented micro-transactions in their games that may have resulted in an 18% revenue increase. In fact, Fortnite made almost $3 billion in profit last year. The same could be said about PUBG as the game also managed to rake in a $1 billion in revenue in 2018. Last year, it was projected that global box office revenue from around the world would hit $41.7 billion, according to comScore data. In fact, Video game revenues also surpass streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime where it is estimated to rake in $28.8 billion. Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix said in a shareholder letter “We compete with (and lose to) Fortnite more than HBO,” the company's shareholder letter stated. “When YouTube went down globally for a few minutes in October, our viewing and signups spiked for that time…There are thousands of competitors in this highly fragmented market vying to entertain consumers and low barriers to entry for those with great experiences.” According to te NPD group analyst Mat Piscatella, revenue in video games comes from a variety of sources i.e. hardware sales, micro-transactions, digital and physical game sales and mobile gaming. With keeping trends in mind, the video game revenue will steadily increase in 2019 and 2020 thanks to new consoles launching soon and blockbuster games like Anthem, The Division 2, and Death Stranding are on the horizon.
