  1. Despite being one of the original eight teams to have been a part of the Indian Premier League since its inception, Kings XI Punjab has more or less been an average franchise. Even with a loaded roster over the years and some of the biggest names from Indian and international cricket such as Yuvraj Singh, Virender Sehwag, KL Rahul, Chris Gayle and Glenn Maxwell, they have somehow managed to not win even a single IPL trophy. In fact the only time the team made it to the final was in 2014 and were a part of the final four during the inaugural season of the league. Other than that, Punjab has been in the bottom half of the points table, letting their fans down one season after another. Even then, if you are a true KXIP fan, this quiz is for you: View the full article
  2. The Royal Challengers Bangalore have become a very peculiar case in the Indian Premier League and continue to be marvelled upon by cricket pundits for not being able to win a single IPL trophy despite being constantly stacked with a great pool of talent and coaching team. Led by some of the greatest names of the game in Indian skipper Virat Kohli and former Protea captain AB de Villiers, RCB continue to disappoint their fans one season after another but even then the supporters keep coming back to the M Chinnaswamy Stadium to cheer for them. If you too are a loyal RCB fan, this quiz is for you: View the full article
  3. Thrillers always make for an enticing watch when the mind is running amok, given how a good rom-com just does not cut it and watching comedy doesn't suffice either. Whenever I want to exercise my mind a little bit, watching a good thriller helps a lot. While shiny expensive cars, a big ensemble cast, magnificent locations definitely add on to the aesthetics, a good storyline doesn’t need all that jazz. Here are 5 underrated Bollywood thrillers which managed to keep us hooked more than any big-budget blockbuster did: 1. 13B Probably one of the most underrated movies of all time, this thriller is a must-watch if you still haven’t given yourself the opportunity to be enticed by a good story. © Big Pictures The film follows a family which moves into a new apartment but suddenly things start going awry. Watch it for the gripping scenes. Also, with a budget of merely Rs 6 crores, this film is insanely well-made. 2. Manorama Six Feet Under With a budget of around Rs 13.4 crores, the movie follows the story of a woman named Manorama who requests an officer (played by Abhay Deol) to find proof of her husband’s extramarital affair. © Shemaroo Entertainment However, when the investigation begins, the officer ends up digging way more than just this one truth. 3. Samay One often wonders how much does it take to make a good movie. Well, for this Sushmita Sen-starring thriller, a budget of less than Rs 4 crores proved that a strong script can manifest regardless of the money. © iDream Productions The plot follows an ACP who is trying to unravel the murder mysteries in town and looks for the serial killer behind them. 4. Kahani Trust Vidya Balan to work and deliver excellence on any script she chooses. The first instalment of this two-part movie franchise was a super hit and fantastically directed. © Boundscript Motion Pictures Vidya plays a pregnant woman who is looking for her lost husband in the streets of Kolkata. With many more strong performances thrown in together, this thriller kept everyone on the edge of their seats right till the end. Oh also, all of this was made under Rs 8 crores. 5. Badla You’d think that with Big B’s name attached to a movie, the budget would be crazy high. Not really. This crime thriller was the surprise package of 2019 which had no fancy backdrops, no extensive ensemble star cast and yet, managed to leave a strong mark on the minds of the audience. With a budget of Rs 10 crores, this film gets a little predictable in some parts but always leaves you wanting more, courtesy the strong performances of Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu.

  4. If you're not finding success in dating apps and are struggling to find a match, then there could be a lot of reasons behind it. But have you ever considered that the phone that you're using might be the reason? Yeah, it sounds absurd, but there's a new study out there which says that iPhone users tend to have more success on dating apps. Imagine the tech that you use affecting how dateable you are. This study is coming from CompareMyMobile and they say that using an iPhone can make you 76% more likely to receive a right swipe. The survey noted the BlackBerry users have the least chance. Looks like their chance of getting declined is almost the same as that of an iPhone user getting accepted. © Reuters Apple, as we all know, is most people's favorite brand to go for. In fact, the survey says that having an Apple Watch or a pair of AirPods will increase your chances further. It just makes you a happier person, apparently. In comparison, Android phones are not that good. Samsung phones can help increase your chances but other brands are not as desirable. Even cool brands like OnePlus and Sony's Xperia phones, sadly, can't help you score a date by increasing your chances. Is This For Real? © Unsplash Well, we're looking at a survey here so we're inclined to believe that there's indeed some depth to it. That being said, we don't recommend you blow up your date just thinking that owning an iPhone can do everything for you. Try to win them over with your dazzling smile, perhaps? After all, gadgets can only do so much to help make your life easier. Source: Forbes View the full article

  7. On 15th August, as India was busy celebrating its 74th Independence Day, one of the country's most iconic cricketers MS Dhoni called time on his international career. After year-long speculations owing to his struggles to feature for the Indian team, 'Captain Cool' brought an end to his storied, illustrious career that saw him enthralling fans during his decade-and-a-half spell on the international circuit. View this post on InstagramThanks a lot for ur love and support throughout.from 1929 hrs consider me as RetiredA post shared by (@mahi7781) Whether it was lightning quick glovework, finishing abilities or his impeccable leadership skills, Dhoni will always be remembered as one of the biggest contributors to Indian cricket. And, the fact that the former Indian captain scored over 17,000 runs, took 634 catches, effected 195 stumpings and clinched multiple trophies across formats, further bolster his claim as one of Indian cricket's greatest players. From “India A” to “The India” our journey has been full of question marks, commas, blanks & exclamations. Now as you put a full stop to your chapter, I can tell u from experience that the new phase is as exciting and there’s no limit to DRS here!!! Well played @msdhoni @BCCI — Gautam Gambhir (@GautamGambhir) August 15, 2020 During his envious cricket career, Dhoni also shattered multiple records which, in turn, proved his worth as one of the best in business. But, there remains one record held by our 'Captain Cool' that probably will never be broken. Gautam Gambhir, who batted alongside Dhoni in the all-important 2011 World Cup final during India's march to glory, has also tipped that MSD record as the one not to be broken. View the full article
  8. Farhan Akhtar has directed some great films like Dil Chahta Hai, Lakshya, and many more over the years. He has proved that he is not only a great director but an even better actor with a fair amount of fan-following. He has donned many roles in his career in the film industry and is known for his performances in many films. We haven’t seen much of him and would want to see more of him as he is an extraordinary actor despite the fact that he has given some flops in the past few years. So, here is a list of Farhan Akhtar movies that prove he should act more often- Bhaag Milkha Bhaag The film was directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Farhan Akhtar played the role of Milkha Singh in the film. The movie is a story based on the life of Milkha Singh, an Indian athlete who was a national champion runner. No one could have played the role of Milkha Singh better than Farhan Akhtar, the film was a blockbuster and left us all impressed. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara Zoya Akhtar’s ZNMD is a film that we still can watch over and over again. Apart from giving us some major friendship goals, this movie gave us some major life lessons that we can’t forget. Farhan Akhtar played the role of a writer who is in search of the meaning of his life. Rock On Farhan Akhtar made his debut with this film and went onto become a super hit and garnered a huge fan following. The whole country was mesmerized by Farhan’s performance in the musical drama. Dil Dhadakne Do The film is a comedy-drama released in the year 2015 and Farhan Akhtar plays the role of a journalist who works abroad. The film was directed by Zoya Akhtar and also stars Anil Kapoor, Shefali Shah, Priyanka Chopra, and Ranveer Singh in key roles. The Sky is Pink The movie is based on the life of motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary, who died in 2015 when she was 18 and was born with immunodeficiency disorder. Farhan Akhtar played the role of Aisha’s dad in the film alongside Priyanka Chopra who played the role of her mother. View the full article
  9. PUBG, Counter-Strike, and Dota are said to be some of the most popular titles on Steam. They account for millions of active players every single day. But every so often, we see a game that just steals all the attention. Well, Fall Guys is one of those games. Fall Guys is essentially a Battle Royale game in which you enter the arena with a lot of other players and your objective is to survive till the end. But instead of surviving with weapons and smarts, your objective here is to make it through all the obstacles. © Devolver Digital Playing Fall Guys is basically as close as we'll ever get to going on Takeshi's Castle. You drop in with 59 other players and the rest is all about having fun out there. Here, watch this trailer - Each Fall Guys session takes place over five rounds of elimination contests. In every round, you control a bean-shaped "fall guy". You'll jump through obstacle courses, swinging between platforms and pendulums trying to throw you off the game. It's a lot of fun to play, especially with your friends. The team behind Fall Guys said they saw 1.5 million players within the first 24 hours of the release. That's an insane number considering the fact it came out of nowhere. Steam database numbers reveal that Fall Guys is more popular than GTA 5 and has a more concurrent number of players. When we say Fall Guys is experiencing a lot of traffic... We had over 1.5 million new players in the first 24 hours! We're working on our first patch for the game, listening to ALL of your feedback and ideas, and are super grateful to everyone who's supported so far! ️ pic.twitter.com/OpD714xu26 — Fall Guys (@FallGuysGame) August 5, 2020 Fall Guys even comes close to PUBG. It may not have surpassed PUBG, but the fact it's already up there on the top means that it's a lot more popular than PUBG too. There's also a lot of buzz around it online, more than PUBG ever had. Fall Guys is available for just Rs 529, which we think is a really good price. It's a lot of fun to play and we think it's one of the best online games out there right now. Be sure to check it out if you're looking for something new to play with your friends. The game is available to play on PC and PS4. Check out Fall Guys on Steam View the full article
  10. Rakshabandhan marks an important day in the annual Hindu calendar. It’s an auspicious day when the bond between brothers and sisters is formally celebrated. Now, although certain aspects of celebrating the ‘vow to protect’ associated with Rakshabandhan is up for debate, let us utilise this very traditional understanding of the festivity to serve a greater cause. What I mean to suggest is that, this Rakshabandhan, let us make a few extra promises and extend protection and support to certain matters of great significance without limiting ourselves to vowing about protecting and supporting just our sisters. © Flickr Listed below are 5 such crucial matters that are affecting thousands of lives in our country and need our attention and support to turn over a fresh leaf, to grow and prosper or just exist happily and live to their fullest potential, because that is what they deserve. Let’s promise to protect and support: 1. Our EnvironmentThe on-going coronavirus pandemic might be the most obvious sign of distress that our planet and mother Nature could have given us. After centuries of exploitation and abuse, our environment, including the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we need to sustain and the resources we require to grow, is losing its power and purity. © Twitter - minatracks Glaciers are melting away at top speed, temperatures are constantly rising, sea water levels are going up, the air quality around the world is plummeting, massive wildfires, hurricanes and floods have become the new normal… The Earth is requesting us to slow down, introspect and change our destructive ways before we lead this beautiful planet down a road of devastation there would be no coming back from. So perhaps the least we can do is to welcome small and positive changes that would help heal and revive the environment and this planet. 2. The Minority Communities © indiatomorrow There is enough on-going talk around minority issues in the country. But without getting into that debate, let us instead do our bit to educate and amplify the needs of those who do not have the numbers to make themselves heard. Be it linguistic, religious or even cultural minorities comprising numerous tribes and castes, we need to admit that a majority of Indian population isn’t ‘privileged’. So let us try to learn, understand and help them make their lives better by saying no to discrimination in every form, by rejecting oppression of the backward and poor, by speaking up against exploitation and threats whenever we witness it. That’s the best way to keep our social fabric intact and allow age-old cultures and communities stay alive and thrive. 3. The LGBTQ+ Movement © Reuters Our fellow brothers and sisters from the LGBTQ+ community have just started to experience the taste of freedom. After years of struggles and innumerable instances of discrimination, attacks and ill-treatment, they are now finally living without fear. But is that all they deserve? Should they be content with only this win? No. They deserve so much more. They deserve to be respected and acknowledged, they deserve to feel safe and accepted, to be treated as equals and given the same rights and opportunities each one of us enjoy (and often take for granted) by virtue of being humans and citizens of India. The least we can do is support their fight to claim what rightfully belongs to them and help them live as happy, prospering individuals. We need to protect and build a future where they can truly live happily, regardless of who they choose to love or what their gender orientation is. 4. Those Who Can’t Speak For Themselves © Twitter Smaridh Raj By this I mean to draw your attention to the plight of harmless animals (and birds) who are abused and killed by selfish, cruel and diabolical humans who think they are the lords of the world. Recently, so many instances of animal abuse came into light, such as feeding elephants and cows food filled with crackers, which led to the end of innocent animal lives. That’s not all, so many pets and street animals have had to suffer in the hands of insensitive humans since the coronavirus outbreak with several owners disowning their pets and many others turning a blind eye towards hungry street animals or attacking those who tried to rescue/feed them. It’s time we truly and honestly start thinking about our responsibility as humans and do our bit to protect those who cannot speak up for themselves. These are just a few ways how making just four new promises this Rakhi can make this world a better place. Would you be making these promises? View the full article
  11. Every time we open a packet of chips, more than being excited to bite the crunchy chips, we are disappointed, because of the quantity the packet has. Agreed, that we pay only Rs 10 for it, but it appears that we spend that money for the air in it and not the chips. © iStock This whole theory has now stirred a debate online, after Reddit, posted a picture and wrote "An empirical analysis of 10 Rs chips packets ft. Lays, Bingo and Haldiram" An empirical analysis of 10 rs chips packets ft. Lays, Bingo and Haldiramhttps://t.co/V9trk5kiEj pic.twitter.com/wqRUvmgHgF — r/India on Reddit (@redditindia) July 27, 2020 On Reddit though, people had nostalgic moments and got emotional about Balaji Chips and even Bingo Red Chilli Flavour as well, for that matter. Someone also wrote "Anyone remembers Funflips and OYO's? - Okay, need a packet right away! © Reddit © Reddit © Reddit The picture put in the Tweet, gives a satisfactory answer to our million-dollar question, as to which brand sells an ideal amount of chips. All the packets are open and laid out on steel plates for the whole world to judge. Clearly, in this battle, Haldiram takes the cake as it has a satisfactory amount of chips and Lays proved to be disappointing. Nonetheless, people are now thanking the person for the revelation and here's how they are reacting to it. pic.twitter.com/VsIzu6O1ic — Kunal Sachdeva (@ksachdeva005) July 28, 2020 Where is the King of all?

  12. Last month, the Indian government decided to ban the use of 59 Chinese apps in India, which included some of the popular apps like TikTok. Now, the government has banned 47 more Chinese apps in India, and this time, we're looking at the apps that were acting as clones to the ones that were banned previously. This news comes hot on the heels of the reports about PUBG Mobile and other Chinese apps getting banned in the country. While we don't have an official confirmation on that, we do know that these 47 clones have been banned. #Breaking 1st on TIMES NOW | Indian Govt bans 47 more Chinese apps which are reportedly, clones of the 59 applications which were earlier banned. Mohit Bhatt with details. pic.twitter.com/uUNNsALz4w — TIMES NOW (@TimesNow) July 27, 2020 Following the government's order to ban 59 Chinese apps on June 29, they've repeatedly warned the makers of the banned Chinese apps to strictly comply with the ban. The government said that those violating the order would face serious action. And now, we're looking at 47 more apps. It goes to show how seriously the government is tracking down these apps. People are calling it the government's 'second digital strike on China'. As of now, we don't have a confirmed list of apps banned this time. But as mentioned earlier, it includes the clones of Chinese apps that were banned previously. © Reuters In case you didn't know, the government is banning Chinese apps citing privacy reasons. The government said they've received numerous complaints against the Chinese apps about how they're "stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users' data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India". "The compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India, is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures," the ministry said. We're not sure if the government is tracking down more apps, but we won't be surprised to see more Chinese apps getting banned in India. Source: TimesNow View the full article
  13. Friends are a blessing. Well, for the most part, until they aren’t. You don’t want us telling you exactly why since you are here reading this article. With that kind of headline in place, it is pretty evident why you may have ended up here: a. You have been blessed with such a 'friend'. b. You think your partner may have such a friend. c. You believe you may be that friend, and want us to prove otherwise. © T-Series Well, no matter what made you decide to click on this story, let me just say that many people around you may have, or know such individuals who are very invested in their friend’s relationships, so much so, that, often they take it upon themselves to decide the couple’s fate. However, it isn’t always easy to identify or be sure if you have such a friend(s) in your own friend circle. So, here are 5 signs to look out for which prove that your friend is dictating your love life: 1. They Know Every Small Detail About Your Relationship As Much As You © Dharma Productions One of the most obvious signs is that you often find yourself filling your friend(s) in on every little detail related to your relationship. How this understanding comes to pass isn’t always clear, though in most cases, it stems from a pre-established norm where you two share a history of sharing everything related to your life with each other. But we need to realise that this case is different. A romantic relationship between two grown-ups is a private affair and therefore demands a sense of sanctity, exclusivity and trust which shouldn’t be breached. Not even for a friend. 2. You Can’t Make Decisions Own Your Own & Need To Consult With Them © Maddock Films Do you often find yourself second-guessing your own decisions related to every other aspect of your relationship? Is this accompanied by a need to take a second opinion from your friend on how to manoeuvre through your own relationship? Well, that’s a big bold sign that you’ve given way too much inside access to your friend to decide on your behalf. While consulting your friend on important decisions is totally fine, but when you find yourself turning to them to help you decide or decide on your behalf every other time, that’s saying something. 3. They Tell You How To Feel Or What To Think In Your Relationship © Eros International A direct spillover from the previous point. Granting too much access to your friend and discussing every aspect of your relationship with them on a regular basis bears the risk of having them turn into an active partner in the relationship, which involves you and your SO. This can often shift the dynamics with your friend guiding you on how to feel or think about something related to your relationship. Yes, friends can always offer their words of wisdom whenever needed, but when someone is too invested in your relationship, they might try to impose their beliefs and reactions on to you, because they feel they know what needs to be done. And that isn’t healthy for your romantic relationship at all. 4. They Make You Feel Guilty For Not ‘Sharing’ Private Details © Red Chillies Productions So, there have been times when you held back from sharing some more serious or private details from your friend, only to have them take offence and make you feel guilty for not ‘sharing’ stuff anymore. They almost seemed oblivious to the fact that it’s your personal relationship and you have the right to not make everything about it public. So they insist and persist and eat at your brain to ‘spill’. Well, that’s a sign, isn’t it? 5. They Want You To Prioritise Your Friendship, Always © T-Series Yes, they know you have a partner. Yes, they seem happy that you’ve found yourself a SO, but all this excitement seems to come with some conditions applied. It’s almost as if everything is cool so long as you don’t make too many plans with your partner. Alternatively, they either want to tag along, or expect you to ignore your partner for the rest of the days and just be their friend first, ‘like old times’. You telling them that you can balance both doesn’t sit well with them, and they’d rather be at the top of your priority list, come what may. Doesn’t always work that way, right? So that’s your cue. Can you think of someone who fits the bill? What do you plan to do now that you know? Let us know in the comments section below. View the full article

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

  20. Sushant Singh Rajput is no more and has left all his near and dear ones devastated and questioning why he took such a drastic step of claiming his own life. While there are many speculations around the untimely and tragic demise, we need to remember him as a man who was positive and did bring in a positive aura in people who he met when he was alive. When he was alive, he touched many hearts with his vibes and positive energy. Well, his school friends are still processing this news that he is no more. © MensXP His school friend Arti Batra told IANS that Sushant was a complete package and was a fun-loving guy who was emotional in his approach. She also added that he was attached to all the people who he considered his close friends. In an interview with IANS, Sushant Singh Rajputâs school friend shared some unheard stories proving the fact that he was a positive soul. © IANS 1. Never Took Stress To His HeadWell, Arti told the agency that he was someone who never took the stress and took things lightly. His teachers too were fond of him and he never refrained himself from doing mischief back at school. For the uninitiated, Sushant studied in St. Karen's High School in Patna, and for higher studies, he attended Kulachi Hansraj Model School in Delhi. âI met Sushant for the first time in standard XI. He came as a new student. It was totally different with him. We went on to become good friends. He was a fun person. I was very serious in studies and he used to take things lightly. Not that he ignored studies, but he never took stress to his head. Sushant was a complete package. He was good at studies, he used to do mischievous things at school. The teachers were really fond of him. He was an all-rounder,â she told the leading agency. 2. He Knew He Will Make It BigShe told how Sushant was one confident human being who somewhere knew he would make it big. Citing one incident from school days, she said, âIt was our farewell day and I was feeling a bit low. I remember there were engineering coaching centre people who had come to our school and given us sample papers in brown envelopes. Sushant sat next to me. He looked at me and took my envelope and wrote, âLots of love, Sushant' on it.â She added, âI was annoyed because he had ruined my envelope by writing his name on it, and asked him to give me his envelope and take mine. That was when he gave the funny response, ârakh le, baad mein line mein khade hone ke baad bhi kya pata na mile'. And he actually proved it. He did everything to fulfil his dreams. I am super proud of him. I still have that brown envelope. It's my precious memory of Sushant.â © IANS 3. Sushant Was Gutsy And HardworkingArti revealed that he dropped a year post 12th to make it to an esteemed engineering college. âAfter standard XII, he dropped a year to prepare for the entrance exams for DCE. When he tried for the first time, he was not able to crack it. His mother passed away the same year and he was very much attached to his mom. He then studied a lot and the next year he cracked the entrance exam and got admission into DCE. He had a ânever give up' attitude. His dedication inspired me a lot," she added. 4. He Was âYaaron Ka YaarâShe told the leading agency that how he believed in quality over quantity and how he travelled to Ujjain to meet a friend Navya just to meet and inform that he will be quitting engineering and will be joining the field of entertainment. She told how she reacted when Sushant broke this big news to her. Recalling the good old days, she said, âSushant believed in quality over quantity. He did not have many friends but was very deeply attached to the people he treated as his close ones. I guess only Navya and I were in touch with him post-school. So, suddenly one day Sushant contacted me and told me that he was thinking of quitting engineering. I was shocked to hear his decision because it was his dream to get into DCE. âPagal ho Gaya hai (have you lost it)?' was my instant response. But he was adamant. Navya's reaction had been the same as mine. But Sushant was a hard-working person.â She also added, âI remember when he joined Shiamak Davar's dance troupe before becoming an actor and got the chance to be a part of 2006 CWG gala, he called me. He was so excited and happy as he performed along with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.â 5. Habit Of Changing NumbersFor those who have known Sushant, they know this particular habit of him changing his numbers quite often. I also have 4 numbers saved under his name. Arti too shed light on this habit and said that they once fought on it and he promised that he will keep in touch as he remembers the numbers of his close friends. She said, âSushant used to change his phone number frequently. Navya and I really used to track him on several social media applications. Once, I even fought with him for his habit of changing numbers. He laughed and said, âmujhe tera number yaad hai, tu mat change kario (I know your number, you don't change it). I will contact you.â She added, âThe last time I spoke to him was in 2017. He told me that he was planning to come to Delhi and meet me. It never happened owing to our busy schedules. Also, we used to think that, being a big celebrity now, he will contact us on his own whenever he gets the time. Now I feel that way was wrong. I regret not calling him and not staying in touch with him regularly.â © MensXP In the end, she added that she canât believe that he could ever take such a step. âI never thought Sushant would take such an extreme step in life. I still can't believe this has happened. He was a very positive person," Arti concluded. Sushantâs untimely demise is more of a personal loss for a lot of people who had the privilege of calling him their âfriendâ. All his loved ones pray for his happiness and peace and until we meet again, we will keep him alive in our memories. View the full article

  22. Period dramas or shows with fantastical elements are genres of Indian TV that have a bad reputation for lifting storylines from pop culture. While basing a character and seeking inspiration is a different story, reproducing it entirely with no tweaks at all is what makes an awkward rip-off. Then there is the artwork for shows that too sometimes can hold resemblance to popular segments in pop-culture. Here are 8 awkward rip-offs among countless others spotted on TV shows. 1. Har Mushkil Ka Hal: Akbar Birbal © IMDB The show followed Birbal, an advisor in the court of King Akbar, as he handles various tricky situations faced by his ruler using his sharp intellect and witty sense of humour. One of the actor's costumes in the show was entirely lifted from Jack Sparrow from the Pirates Of The Caribbean. 2. Kahaani Hamaaray Mahaabhaarat Ki © IMDB Ekta Kapoor's Kahaani Hamaaray Mahaabhaarat Ki was an adaptation of the Mahabharata, except a lot of the plotlines of the show were lifted. Even the costumes had taken inspiration from ancient Greece. The costumes were inspired from Gerard Butler's 300. 3. Roadies © IMDB Back when Raghu Ram was associated with MTV's Roadies, one of the promotional posters for a season looked too similar to Max Payne 3. 4. Baal Veer © IMDB In the fictional world of Baal Veer, more than one character was lifted to bring the series to life. One of the characters was heavily inspired by Ian McKellen's Magneto. One of the villains wore a costume which was an awkward rip-off of Magneto's suit. 5. Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani © IMDB The show's plot follows Pia as she joins a new college in Dehradun and soon, falls in love with Abhay. However, she is unaware of the fact that he is a vampire. The storyline and Abhay both will remind you of the Twilight series and Edward Cullen respectively in more ways than one. 6. Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat © IMDB Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat was a series about the life of Ashoka, the third emperor of the Mauryan empire. The series was more fictional with its timeline, introducing elements to the storyline that possibly could have never existed. The antagonist of this historical drama, Daastan, played by Rumi Khan had a strikingly similar appearance to Khal Drogo from Game Of Thrones. 7. C.I.D © IMDB CID is a tv drama that follows the lives of ACP Pradyuman, Daya and Abhijeet who work for the CID department. They seek the help of professional forensic expert Dr. Salunkhe and solve various criminal cases. While most episodes of the show are almost identical, with occasional appearances of seemingly scary villains. One of them turned out to be an awkward rip-off of DC's Joker. 8. Baal Veer © IMDB Baal Veer, the protagonist of the show is taken to a fairyland where he is blessed with special powers by six fairies, each with unique abilities. He uses his powers to help good and honest children, including his friends. Naturally, the show introduced witches in the show as villains. However, a lot was lifted from Disney. One of the witches, for instance, was an exact copy from Disney's witch in Snow White. View the full article
  23. It has been long rumoured that Apple has been working on its own custom chips for its laptops, and the Cupertino giant is about to announce its shift very soon. According to a report by Bloomberg, Mac computers will be housing Appleâs custom processors instead of chips from Intel. The report goes on to say Apple will be announcing the new move at its annual developer conference later this month. © daniel-korpai-unsplash The new chipsets are rumoured to be based on the same technology used in iPhones and iPads that are already industry-leading for its performance and power capabilities. Having said that, macOS have completely different requirements than iPhones and it would be interesting to see how Apple plans to integrate the new chips. Apple will be licensing the technology from Arm Limited and will have a different architecture as Intel chips. Developers will need to optimise their apps for future macOS products if this rumour turns out to be true. It will be the first time in 36 years Apple will be using their own chipsets for their laptops and computers. © radek-grzybowski--unsplash The shift to custom processors comes after Apple engineers got worried about sticking to Intelâs roadmap which would delay or derail Appleâs future plans. Bloomberg reports that Apple has been testing Arm-based Macs internally and have already seen sizeable improvements over MacBooks using Intel chipsets. Apple is aiming for more power-efficient chipsets that will enable the laptops to be even thinner and lighter. The report adds that Apple has been working on three different versions of its own processors. The processor is said to have its own graphics processing unit and a Neural Engine for machine learning and other types of AI learning. Apple has been working on chipsets for laptops for years and we may finally see their results at the annual WWDC conference scheduled for later this month. Apple is expected to announce new versions of iOS, TVOS, iPadOS, macOS and other improvements for the following year. Source: Bloomberg View the full article
  24. When I heard the price of the Redmi Earbuds S, I literally spat the water out of my mouth. That's because I was testing the earphones for a week prior to its launch and had assumed that it would cost between Rs 4,000 to Rs 7,000. Having tested many TWS earphones over the years, I have a fair idea of what a device should cost due to its sound signature, but the 'Redmi Earbuds S' is literally challenging the status quo. These wireless earphones are not meant for music enthusiasts but for users who don't want to use wired earphones for calls and listen to some music casually while in office or even at home. Here are our thoughts on the 'Redmi Earbuds S' after using them for ten days and what makes it worth the purchase: Design When looking at the design of the Redmi Earbuds S; you will notice that you may have seen something similar before. That's because Redmi sells these wireless earphones in China as the AirDots while in India they are called the Earbuds S. The design of the 'Earbuds S' has no resemblance to Apple's AirPods and instead uses a tried and tested design that many users prefer. It comes in a very cute yet classy pill-shaped charging case which has magnets inside to hold the earphones in place. The earphones are ready to pair with a phone the moment you open the lid of the charging case. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The stalks on the earphones are minimal and they have a rectangle design instead of an elongated design like AirPods. It sits in your ears at a 45-degree angle and comes with two additional tips that suit your Concha or your ear canal. Even the earbuds are fairly simple as it does not come with any gesture controls and instead uses physical buttons on the base of each earphone that has basic controls such as music playback options and calling up Google Assistant. Additionally, there is an indicator light on each bud which shows the status of the earphones. Red means they are charging in the case and a white light indicates that the Earbuds S is ready to pair with a device. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The charging case is also made of plastic and we can't really complain here as these earphones cost less than a fancy meal in Delhi. However, the charging case does come with a micro-USB port which was disappointing to see as most devices have now moved on to the USB-C ecosystem. You will be happy to know that the Redmi Earbuds S has an IPX4 rating which means it is sweat and splash resistant, making it perfect for the hot and humid weather of India. Sound Quality © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The sound on the Redmi Earbuds S is directly dependent on the design of the TWS and the results were quite impressive, keeping the price in mind. Due to tighter seal and the 7.2mm drivers, the bass is more defined, however the earphones do drop the ball when it comes to mid and high frequencies. To be honest, most people like harder bass feedback and the Redmi Earbuds S is delivering quite well on that front. You can, however, adjust your sound levels manually via a music player if you need your mid and high frequencies to be clearer. As these earphones are not really meant for a music enthusiast, there isn't much to talk about the sound as the sound signature stays quite similar when testing the earbuds with different types of genres. The bass or the low frequency tends to overpower other frequencies but it still remains somewhat enjoyable to listen to music casually. If you prefer a clearer sound, you may want to consider the 1More Truly Stylish or the Samsung Galaxy Buds. The most impressive part of the Redmi Earbuds S is the range you can use these earphones up to. In normal mode, we could use the earbuds without any issues in the connection up to 25 feet away from the smartphone. Having said that, we did have to maintain a clear line of sight for it to work that far. If I went to a different room, the audio would cut out from time to time due to the thick walls in between. That said, the range of the earphones is quite impressive and is even better than most of its expensive counterparts. The primary use of the Redmi Earbuds S is supposed to be for making calls and the earphones really do that well. Most TWS have weak earphones that often make your own voice sound muffled. The Redmi Earbuds S have microphones in each bud and we used various apps to make calls for the test. We tested the earbuds on Discord, WhatsApp call and a normal call. The other person on the other end could hear our voice clearly, however it sounded as if we were in a big spacious environment. For gamers who use discord, there is a dedicated low latency mode that reduces lag and helps in faster communication when playing games. It gets reduced to 122ms and can be activated by pressing the physical button on the earbuds three times. Battery Life © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Redmi Earbuds S packs a punch when it comes to the battery life of the earbuds when in use. We managed to keep the wireless earbuds running for around 4.5 hours, however in low latency mode you can expect it to drop by 45 minutes. The earbuds can be fully charged again with the charging case, but it does take its time to get to full charge. The charging case also does not support any fast charging, so we advise, you charge the case and the buds when you have ample time. Having said that, the charging case can charge the earbuds up to three full charges on a single charge so you can expect the total battery back up to be around 12 hours when using in normal mode. The Final Say When taking the price of Rs 1,799 into consideration, the Redmi Earbuds S is a sound purchase if you are looking to go wireless. These TWS earbuds are great for making calls and can also serve gamers well for games that require constant communication. Even the sound of these earphones matches up to TWS earphones that cost Rs 5,000 or even above which makes this a great deal already. Redmi has truly democratised the wireless audio game with the Redmi Earbuds S and you should not hesitate from buying these wireless earphones. View the full article
