  1. Armpit hair can be an extremely controversial territory for men, because whether you keep it or get rid of it depends entirely on how you like it. While armpit hair is absolutely fine, given India's weather overall, it probably is advisable to not let them grow way too much to avoid excessive sweat and stench. A little bit of growth is absolutely fine, even when you're shirtless on the beach playing volleyball. © Pinterest However, how you decide to groom it is important. While most men turn to their local salons and ask for a quick swipe of the razor on their armpits as well, probably once in a month or a fortnight, it isn't the best way. No, doing it at home while using the best shaving cream with your own razor is also not a good idea at all. Here is why you should always trim your armpit hair, instead of shaving. 1. Your armpit does not have an even skin surface. It's extremely tricky to maneuvre a sharp razor on that uneven surface, and more often than not, you will end up with a cut or two. The skin there is also extremely sensitive apart from being uneven, so a bloody mess isn't a possibility you can rule out. Why take chances? Use a trimmer with '1' as the setting (setting it at zero probably isn't a good idea if you're clumsy) and zoom through without any cuts or scrapes. © Getty Images 2. When you shave, the hair seems to grow thicker and coarser, because it has been cut near the skin surface. The result? That itchy, prickly feeling on your skin within a couple of days. You know no feeling in the world is worse. It isn't as bad when you trim. © Instagram/Sonusood 3. Shaving is tough on your skin. When you shave a part of skin that is as soft and sensitive, the skin is always damaged. Also, razor burns and even the smallest of cut/nick with take way longer in this area to heal. You may end up with pimples, boils, and a number of other annoying skin issues. Why not use a trimmer and nip the whole situation at the bud? All we can say is, it's easier to trim your troubles away.
  2. No one tasted success in the year 2018 like Ayushmann Khurrana did, perhaps except Vicky Kaushal. Whatever he touched turned to gold, and he clearly has decided to keep the momentum going in 2019 as well (he already has started shooting for 'Article 15'). One thing that Ayushmann is as consistent at, just like his acting chops, is his fashion and grooming game. He never stops experimenting, and everything seems to work for him. The latest example? His pornstar moustache. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Ayushmann just won an award for the most popular performer, and along with an amazing tailcoat, he showed off his brand new pornstache - something he's a natural at pulling off. © Instagram/Ishabhansali Don't you love this sharp new look? © Viral Bhayani When it comes to his style game, as usual, stylist Isha Bhansali went the extra mile and made Ayushmann look like a sophisticated Duke from the Victorian era. As if the ladies already weren't weak-kneed! © Instagram/Ishabhansali We're loving the interplay of grey, white, and black in his ensemble. The white bowtie is an unusual quirk that's adding the distinctive vintage look. © Viral Bhayani All we can say is, full marks on the moustache, as well as the outfit, Ayushmann. Now, we can't wait to see the magic you're about to bring to the big screen.
  3. Diljit Dosanjh is probably the only other fashionista in the country who can give Ranveer Singh and Karan Johar a solid run for their money when it comes to maximalism. His raw, rustic appeal is a perfect contrast against the hypebeast appeal his clothes exude. His wardrobe can legit be used as a fashion masterclass when it comes to brand-spotting, and some of them are super expensive (duh). Here are 5 pieces that we love, and probably can never afford. 1. The Dapper Dan Necklace From Gucci © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh This one, without a doubt, is Diljit's favourite accessory. He has worn it with almost every statement outfit of his and rocked it every single time. It costs a whopping Rs 2.4 Lakhs. 2. The Oversized Purple Teddy Bear Sweater From Amiri © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh The super playful oversized purple sweater from Amiri with a teddy bear patch costs 1190 Dollars, which when converted to INR, is around Rs 83,500. In its defence, it's really cute. 3. The 'Blame It On My Youth' Leather Jacket By Misbhv © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh Who won't want to own this classic piece with the super funky slogan? They can, of course, if they can spare Rs. 82.500. 4. Balenciaga Oversized Padded Logo-Print Cotton-Poplin Shirt © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh This cotton-poplin shirt with extra-big sleeves from Balenciaga costs INR 1,22,520. 5. Jeans From Gosha Rubchinskiy © Viral Bhayani It's 'not much', but will you be willing to pay INR 36,270 for a pair of jeans? Probably, if you're Diljit! Some day, Paaji, some day.
  4. Fashion is essentially subjective, of course, but there are some things that one should just stay a hundred miles away from - unless of course, they enjoy wallowing in bad taste. Men's fashion is becoming more and more inclusive every passing day, but that should never be the license for wearing 'the bad and the ugly'. In spite of all the subjectivity, trust us, there do exist some unforgivable fashion faux pas, that every man should steer clear of. Don't worry if it sounds too confusing, we're here to tell you what not to wear. We have listed out 6 things that men should never, ever wear. 1. Shiny shirts © FashionLeisure They were popular once upon a time, but we'll never understand why. No one can pull them off! Shiny shirts will make you look weird AF, even if you look like a Greek God. They look super cheap, extremely gaudy, and plain ugly. 2. Ill fitted, baggy jeans © Alibaba If you want to convert your Tinder right swipes to left swipes in real life, please go out on a date wearing these atrocities. Yes, comfortable and blah, but so are a pair of nice, crisp pair of linen trousers that fit you just right! Why would you want to look like a confused teen from the hood in a Gangsta movie who's had a trip or two to the juvie? 3. Socks with sandals © Getty Images We can't stress upon how harmful this one right here can be for your romantic/*** life. It, however, will work as a great contraceptive method because you will never be getting laid if you're seen in public wearing them. Go on, try it out. 4. Huge belt buckles © Democratic Underground You're not a cowboy (unless you actually are). But even if you are, why should you be a fashionably deprived one? Plus, it's not the '70s anymore and they should just be discarded. 5. Square toed shoes © ShoesLovetoknow Who can pull them off, honestly? Your feet would look 60 if you wear them. 6. Too much of jewellery © Saavn You aren't Bappi Lahiri, and you should save it only for him.
  5. If you're ever feeling down and out in life, just go over to Akshay Kumar's Instagram page and you'll get a whole lotta determination, inspiration and motivation, all folded in to one. The actor does such inspirational things, it gives us hope that the world can definitely be a better place. © Pinterest Just recently, along with Aditya Thakeray, he participated in a training session to teach young girls basic self-defence techniques, in Thane Mumbai. His social media was abuzz with a video of him training the girls, so they can protect themselves in the most basic way possible. © Instagram The video he shared on his Instagram page was captioned: Happy to see a turnout of 2000 plus girls from nearby schools at our self defense training camp in Thane today. The workshop was to teach them some basic self defense techniques. Hoping it was helpful and to see more of them at our training centre. Happy to see a turnout of 2000 plus girls from nearby schools at our self defense training camp in Thane today. The workshop was to teach them some basic self defense techniques. Hoping it was helpful and to see more of them at our training centre. @adityathackeray A post shared by Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) on Feb 20, 2019 at 4:02am PST Dressed in black, Kumar displayed a lot of patience and skilful knowledge about the basics of martial arts. He believes it's important for young girls to know the fundamentals, just in case they face something uncomfortable, ever in life. © Pinterest Akshay has had formal training in Thai Boxing and Muay Thai when he spent over 5 years learning these forms of martial arts in Thailand and now he wishes to impart his knowledge of martial arts for training purposes. This isn't the first time we're seeing the man in his utmost noble best. He's known to bring issues of menstrual hygiene to the forefront with his film 'Padman' and has also joined hands with an organisation to aid a running event to raise awareness for menstrual hygiene. © Zee Studios On the work front, his film 'Kesari', based on the battle of Saragarhi in 1897 will release in March this year and we're really waiting with bated breath to watch him in one of the finest roles he's ever played.
  6. Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar are two of the most coveted superstars in the Indian film industry and while we'd love to see them work together on a project, seems like it is not possible, at least according to the King Khan himself. View this post on Instagram Launda na samajhna, beta baap hain tumhare! #1WeekToZero @anushkasharma @KatrinaKaif @aanandlrai @mohdzeeshanayyub #tigmanshudhulia @RedChilliesEnt @cypplOfficial A post shared by Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) on Dec 14, 2018 at 2:35am PST Recently during an interview, SRK was asked about his future plans and one of the questions was about him working with Khiladi Kumar. Now he'd love to work with him but his reason for not being able to do so is kind of very hilarious. “What do I say to this? I don't wake up as early as him. I go to sleep when Akshay is waking up. His day starts early. By the time I start working, he is packing up and going home. So he can put in more hours of work. I'm a nocturnal person. Not many people are fond of shooting at night like me. It will be fun to act with Akshay. Dono set pe hi nahin milenge. Woh jaa raha hoga aur main aa raha hounga (He'll be leaving the set and I'll be coming in). I would like to work like Akshay and with him, but our timings won't match.” View this post on Instagram ð A post shared by Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) on Jan 14, 2019 at 10:57pm PST Besides being a funny reason, it is also a very logical, and a relatable one for all of us struggling to make it to work on time every day. Now if you think about it, the duo was last seen together on the screen when they worked in 'Dil Toh Pagal Hai 'in 1997. We'd love to see the two men come together for a movie, but seems like the genres and the timings they both choose are poles apart. SRK was last seen in Anand L Rai's 'Zero' which didn't perform well at the box office and Akshay was seen with Rajinikanth in '2.0' and is now working on 'Sooryavanshi' with Rohit Shetty.

  8. Most young guys step into the world of fitness watching a famous bodybuilder who's been winning. Some look up to movie stars who went shirtless and swept the audience off their feet. Now, there's nothing wrong with drawing motivation from these personalities, but there's a problem and it's a pretty big one. The Problem is Trying To COPY Them As It Is People start following these famous personalities for nutritional advice, which is the dumbest thing one can do. You know what's even worse than that? Paying these bodybuilders for their diet plans! What most men do not understand is that 1. They do not have the genetic gifts that a pro bodybuilder has. 2. They do not and cannot work out for hours like a pro bodybuilder. 3. They do not use steroids and even if they do, they are nowhere near the dosages that pro bodybuilders inject. All of these things, especially the steroids help these bodybuilders get away with crazy amount of food, at least for a few years. A normal gym rat on the other hand won't get away with for a week. If you try and follow these “muscle gain” diets and you'll get fat and wreck your health. Keep following these diets and you'll start developing a host of problems like anabolic resistance where your ability to pack on muscle mass is seriously impaired due being in an unnecessary caloric surplus for a long period of time. What A Huge Amount Of Uncalculated Food Does © Pinterest It makes you insulin resistant to start with, then comes leptin resistance and when in full swing, it blows you up like a balloon where you even start losing the pump no matter how hard you work a muscle. Strength gains diminish drastically, inflammation is high, and you even start suffering from low libido. Cutting down to lower body fat levels also become very very difficult due to the above mentioned conditions. This is the reason why following the same diets as pro bodybuilders is a very bad idea if you are not using the same amount of exogenous assistance and training the way that they are. Don't Pay For Problems © Pinterest The sad reality is that many people end up buying diet plans from these bodybuilders and internet 'contest-prep' gurus and end up regretting it after they make a mess of their physique. The funny thing is that these Gurus claim that these diets are customized when in reality, they make diet templates and email the one that is the closest to a person's details. Doesn't even come close to being customised for a person's needs and preferences! What Should You Do? When it comes to advice about nutrition and more importantly supplementation, never take the word of a pro bodybuilder for it. These guys are athletes, not nutritionist. Nutrition is not their area of expertise and you would never take the advice of a guy about a field that he is not an expert in, would you? It gets even worse when it comes to supplement as with boom in the supplement industry, every half witted moron who has six pack abs is now a sponsored athlete and expecting a honest advice from a sponsored athlete is quite simply, stupid. Following them for motivation is well and fine but you need to remember that the plans that you buy off the bodybuilders are their plans which were given to them by their Gurus and which they have been following blindly for years. These are neither tailored for your need or preferences nor are scientifically sound. © Pinterest You'll need a lot of trial and error to figure out which eating pattern works best for you. Mindlessly following a diet which makes you stuff your face with bland chicken breast and rice every 3 hours until you puke is the stupidest thing you can do. When in reality, you only need a surplus of around 200-300 calories above your maintenance to build muscles effectively. Don't believe me? Then keep paying someone else for the copy pasted templates and see how far it takes you. Ignorance is expensive.

  9. Most transformation stories have this one element of getting bullied at some point of time. Easily, it is like a launch pad for most of the success stories. Tushar Agrawal's success story was also ignited by the same element. It was 2006 when Tushar had hit the gym for the very first time. He was a lanky guy with 45 kilos of body weight. Being underweight throughout his teens and early 20s, he became a bully magnet. Fed up of the never-ending bullying, Tushar decided to steer things around. He was in his 10th standard when he got introduced to weight training. In the hopes of beating up the bullies, he made weight training a staple in his life. 3 years into training hard and eating almost everything, he touched 65kg body weight. A rookie to nutrition, Tushar thought that adding whey supplements to his routine will get him jacked. The dream of getting big was real. He spent money but unsurprisingly, he didn't get jacked. He Did Steroids And Still Regrets It To This Day Tushar used to work out in a nearby gym under the guidance of a regular desi trainer. In 2009, one of the gym's uneducated trainers insinuated him to try steroids. Since he was desperate to get big, he followed through. What followed was an influx of unmonitored usage of oral and injectable steroids. To make the case worse, the usage continued for over 3 years, till 2012. As per Tushar, he used to do one cycle a year. No wonder, he got jacked and muscular. Though at 95 kilo body weight, Tushar's body fat percentage was still on the higher side as his coach knew nothing about nutrition. After prolonged usage, he started feeling that something was wrong with him. He could not figure out what it was since there were no physical side effects till then. Later he realized that it was his guilt of using way too much steroids. Though the drug usage made Tushar really strong and big, poor workout form gave him another shock. He was diagnosed with slip disc in L4-L5-S1 and C3-C4. 2012: A Doctor Friend Saved Him Apparently, one of his old friends, who happened to be a doctor, had returned from Canada around the same time. Tushar shared his ordeal with him and opened up about his steroid usage. He came through very clear that he was feeling depressed. The doctor advised him to stop using it and get a blood test done on priority. Being a medical professional he guided Tushar about the possible side effects of steroid usage. The blood tests, as expected, showed that most of his health markers were in a horrible position. The report was an alarming call! That was the time when he decided that he will never touch steroids in his life. 2018: He Achieved What He Never Expected For almost 15 years now, Tushar chased his dream physique but never was able to achieve it. After 2012, when we gave up using anabolics, he was looking for the best natural way to reach his goals. Finally, in 2018, he came across Team Aminder, an organization that practices and preaches drug-free bodybuilding, online. Ever since being cheated by the desi trainers, Tushar was skeptical in taking up online training. Things changed when he met his friend's wife, who had lost nearly 20 kilos of body fat training with Team Aminder. April 2018, Tushar decided to give a shot to Team Aminder. In 7.5 months from then, Tushar lost 21 kilos of fat and achieved a physique which seems unnatural to most. During these 7.5 months, Jaspreet, his personal coach, kept changing Tushar's diet and caloric intake and worked with him very closely. On achieving such physique today Tushar says, “There was a time when I myself used to think that naturally it is not possible but now that I have done it and that too without any supplement, I must say it is 100% possible. You just need a good coach who has the required knowledge.”
  10. Loki has always been a fan favourite Marvel villain and Tom Hiddleston is just a small part of it. Everyone loves the character and people even loved the 'evil' Loki, but a new development is suggesting that he might have never even been evil, he was probably never even a villain. A good day for all Loki stans, isn't it? For the theory, we have to go all the way back to the first 'Avengers' movie. Remember Loki's sceptre given to him by Thanos? We know that it can be used to control the minds of other people, and we saw that when Loki used that on Hawkeye and Erik Selvig, but what Loki probably didn't know was that it can also influence the person using it. Wonder why Thanos failed to mention that? Oh right, because the purple giant is the worst. We also know now that the sceptre also contained the mind stone, which is able to override one's thought, making Loki just as susceptible to its power as anyone else. And, this isn't just a theory anymore. Some fans noted that Marvel confirmed this theory on the official character page for Loki, and yep, the Mind stone did corrupt Loki, it's canon now. Here's the excerpt from Marvel's official website: “Arriving at the Sanctuary through a wormhole caused by the Bifrost, Loki met the Other, ruler of the ancient race of extraterrestrials the Chitauri, and Thanos. Offering the God of Mischief dominion over his brother's favourite realm Earth, Thanos requested the Tesseract in return. Gifted with a Scepter that acted as a mind control device, Loki would be able to influence others. Unbeknownst to him, the Scepter was also influencing him, fueling his hatred over his brother Thor and the inhabitants of Earth.” So basically, Loki wasn't the villain of 'The Avengers' at all. He was just as much the victim of the Mind Stone as anyone else, and there's now an explanation of why his character changed over the course of movies. I mean, all he wanted in 'Thor: Ragnarok' was a sugar daddy and live his best life as a sugar baby, that doesn't really sound villainous. The angry, self-righteous grape, now that's the villain we should all hate!
  11. Back in November, when the selectors announced the Indian squad for the T20I series against West Indies and Australia, the absence of Mahendra Singh Dhoni had left many fans and former cricketers bemused. But, amid all hue and cry, the former Indian captain clarified that he had excluded himself from the two series in order to allow young Rishabh Pant some much-needed gametime. Dhoni further backed the youngster and called him his potential successor behind the stumps. And, if anyone witnessed Pant's exploits in the recently-concluded 1st Test between India and Australia, they'd agree that the Delhi cricketer didn't disappoint. The scores of 25 & 28 (across the two innings) might not do justice to the left-hander, but, given the ever-changing match situations at the Adelaide Oval, Pant's knocks surely helped India's cause. He might not have scored a fifty or a hundred, but his biggest contribution in India's 31-run triumph, as predicted by Dhoni, came from behind the stumps. © BCCL Repaying the faith of Dhoni and the selectors, Pant made everyone proud by equalling the world record of most catches taken by a wicket-keeper in a single Test match. The Delhi cricketer took 11 catches against Australia in Adelaide and matched the heroics of Jack Russell and AB de Villiers - both of whom were earlier standing tall with the unique feat. The 21-year-old caught six batsmen - Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Travis Head, Tim Paine, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood - in the first innings and then took five more catches in the second. Pant equalled the world record for most catches in a single Test in the 101th over when Mohammed Shami got Starc to edge one through to the Indian wicket-keeper. For someone who considers Dhoni as his role model, Pant, then, came up with a brilliant tribute to the Jharkhand cricketer. "He's (Dhoni) the hero of the country. I've learnt a lot from him as a person and as a cricketer as well. Whenever he's around, I feel more confident as a person. If I've got any problems I can share it with him and get a solution right away," Pant told cricket.com.au. © AP "As a wicket-keeper and a player (he's taught me) to be patient in pressure situations like this (in Adelaide). You have to keep calm and keep composed and try to give 100 per cent," he added. Talking about equalling the world record, Pant said: "I never thought of the record but it's good to take some catches and put it inside my kitty. It's good to have milestones, but I'm not thinking about that too much".
  12. So, it happens again. And mind you, we are no stranger to this attitude which is rampant in our society. A woman is assaulted, and instead of punishing and penalising the offender, the entire narrative is turned around on its head to put the blame on the one who lived through the pain and trauma of the assault. The one who survived. Social media is abuzz today with updates of the sexual harassment incident that took place within the SRM Institute of Science and Technology campus in Chennai yesterday. Hundreds of girls have been protesting since last evening after a girl student alleged that a university staff masturbated in front of her. However, when she tried to raise a complaint, not only was her concern treated with indifference, the girl's hostel warden suggested that the girls dress appropriately instead. The incident, unfortunately, is not a new one. Women continue to live through such experiences on a daily basis. While some have the courage and agency to speak out about, others don't. Many such cases and others that are far more repugnant, make their way to the first few pages of newspapers every day. Yet, there continues to exist a void, one that fails to cure itself regardless of the innumerable efforts at sensitisation towards victims and survivors of such events. © Reuters It seems like a vicious cycle that stubbornly stays put to nag women, wherever they are and whatever their realities might be. Women continue to get told what they should wear, and how they should wear it, in order to cover themselves up into something that's almost invisible - non-existent even. The warden's comment and approach towards the incident are reflective of larger opinion that wearing anything besides “traditional” clothing is sure to get us the “wrong” kind of attention. In that case, we must also shun western outfits and even food for that matter. In very simple words, men will be men and they would like to have their cake and eat it too, by the virtue of being born male. It is, on the other hand, the “responsibility” of women to take proper care so their existence doesn't grab a male member's attention. ever. © MensXP This attention is meant to be paid to our clothes, which should be “Indian and not western”, our food habits, which need to be “sattvic”, our behaviour and interactions which must always fan the “superior gender's” ego and entitlement. In short, we must be like a cow, or maybe a slave incarnate to doll up and serve the men as per their whims and fancy. However, regardless of all the “precious” lessons and advice that members of our own community hand out to us, besides the patriarchs of course, what we fail to understand is how do men and the society at large justify that a woman's clothes can have anything to do with her getting assaulted. A woman might choose to wear nothing and yet not a single man should even be able to lay a finger on her without her consent because she still holds the autonomy over her OWN BODY! Is it so difficult for people to understand that basic human behaviour doesn't allow people to act like beasts? Hell, even male beasts allow females to make their own choice and don't throw themselves on them! © Next Gen Films If none of this convinces you, then you might want to know that, psychologies Sandra Shullman, who specializes in harassment and hostile work environments and told Yahoo Lifestyle, “Women's wardrobes have long been used as an excuse for *** crimes, however, when you look at the data on why people rape, that doesn't hold up.” Another study showed that rapists stated clothing as the reason for their crimes but their victims were wearing a range of outfits from revealing to snowsuits. These are arguments to transfer the responsibility of control and power from the perpetrator to the victim. She also added that, when it came to *** crimes, “clothing just doesn't matter.” Yet, all ignorant people, such as the warden, continue to look for ways to blame the survivor, instead of teaching the offenders a lesson for their horrid crimes!
  13. 'Bigg Boss 12' is undoubtedly one of the most entertaining and controversial reality shows on the Indian television right now. Just when we think that there's nothing that can surprise us anymore, the inmates come around and prove us wrong. In case you missed the recent episode, this time Surbhi Rana and Deepak Thakur were the two contenders for the captaincy, and Bigg Boss gave the task of 'Breaking News' to them where the two players had to report the best breaking news in the house to win the task. .@sreesanth36 is uncovering the story behind the fight between @harbhajan_singh and him. Watch what's happening now! #BB12 #BiggBoss12 pic.twitter.com/Ls1wWsoSKN — COLORS (@ColorsTV) November 22, 2018 While talking to Surbhi, Sreesanth revealed details about his controversy with Harbhajan Singh and confessed that both Harbhajan and he has committed mistakes. He started out with how he was selected in Preity Zinta's Kings XI Punjab and Harbhajan was shortlisted by Mumbai Indians for the IPL. After Mumbai Indians lost the match, Sreesanth went to wish him 'hard luck' and Harbhajan then hit him with the back of his hand that cannot be considered a slap. #BiggBoss12 ke ghar mein pehli baar, famous cricketer @sreesanth36 ne kiya ek hairatangez khulaasa! Dekhna na bhulein #BB12 Breaking News aaj raat 9 baje. @iamappyfizz @oppomobileindia @TheGarnierMan @letsdroom pic.twitter.com/FMaku9amW6 — COLORS (@ColorsTV) November 22, 2018 He said, "I had crossed the line. Bhajji didn't like it as he got defeated at his home ground. It was a volcanic eruption. I was angry in the beginning but then I cried because I felt helpless." After sharing his side of the story, he further said that he respects Harbhajan and considers him like his elder brother and that there was nothing between them. He concluded the conversation saying that he loves him and his family and gets equal amount of love in return. Thanks to Sreesanth and his shocking revelation about the 2008 Slapgate controversy, Surbhi won an extra point.
  14. What would you do if you had the chance to interact with one of the world's most richest man that there is? Coming across such an opportunity would give us the power to shower them with some of our most eager questions! So, finally, when the opportunity presents itself, we will surely have the most superb (read eccentric) queries to pose to our heroes. © Reuters The world knows him as the face of Microsoft, or as the possessor of the former 'World's Richest Man' title. We are talking about Bill Gates, and the man is currently second only to Amazon's Jeff Bezos in terms of their riches. Gates holds the second rank on the list of world's richest men, and he is currently worth $90 billions as per Forbes' 'World Billionaires 2018' list. World's richest or not, generations of young students, entrepreneurs and professionals have been inspired by Gates' vision and achievements. Millions of people around the globe look up to him for the inspiration that he is. Similarly, Gates never disappoints his admirers and tries to interact with them as often as possible. © Reuters During his last interaction,Gates participated in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on social networking site Reddit. While numerous questions were posed by eager participants, the response to UncomfortableChuckle's question has shed new light on Bill Gates beliefs and ideologies. UncomfortableChuckle asked Bill Gates, “If you could give 19-year-old Bill Gates some advice, what would it be?” and Gates' response has been nothing less than a revelation. One read, and we realise that such clarity of thought and depth in perception only comes from experiencing life and being at the very top of the financial ladder. © Reuters Yet, every word that left Gates' mouth in response to the question are such gems, that we cannot help but admit that no school in the world would ever want us to learn about it. However, Gates swears by it and we can totally understand why. Here's the advice Bill Gates would like to give his younger self, that we can relate to as well: “I would explain that smartness is not single dimensional and not quite as important as I thought it was back then. I would say you might explore the developing world before you get into your forties. I wasn't very good socially back then, but I am not sure there is advice that would fix that — maybe I had to be awkward and just grow up?” © Reuters Allow us to break it down for your better understanding. There seem to be three very significant things that Gates is talking about, and here is exactly what you need to know about the life-altering advice: 1. Unlike What School Tries To Tell You, Being Smart Isn't Everything What Gates seems to be saying at the very onset is that smartness comes in many shapes and sizes, and it isn't the only prerogative that promises success. On the other hand, Bill Gates is actually suggesting that one must keep the curiosity alive and never stop gaining more knowledge. 2. Travel Should Top Your To-Do List Bill Gates then suggests that exploring the world while one is still young and able should turn into a priority. Travelling around the world and exploring new places and cultures allows a person to become more perceptive and aware, which helps them gain personal and professional insights. © Reuters One such exploration in South Africa changed Bill Gates and his wife's perception when they witnessed what extreme poverty and diseases looked it. Gates called the experience “phenomenal” and the couple later went on to establish the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to fight poverty and hunger around the world. 3. Being Shy Doesn't Make You 'Weird' The last thing Gates pointed out was that being shy isn't as weird as people suggest it to be. One should be okay with how they are, shy or not, and make the most of their strengths. Surely you remember how our teachers told the shy kids in the class to “speak up more often”, “participate more often” and the likes. All of this makes complete sense. The man gets the things our school hardly ever understood.
  15. The world came to a standstill when the newsflash hit everyone's phones: Stan Lee had passed away. Honestly, I had to check across multiple portals to check if this was a hoax or not, but once this gut-wrenching piece of news was confirmed, the first thing that popped in my mind was- “Oh my God, Marvel movies without Stan Lee in it? How will this even work?” via GIPHY I don't know if I am the only one who does this, but whenever I see Stan on the big screen making a badass cameo out of nowhere, I instantly go into fanboy mode without giving a damn if the dude next to me is judging me or not! via GIPHY The cheers, clap and whistles just come pouring out as soon as I see him making a trademark sarcastic comment about superheroes. This is my personal favourite. via GIPHY Now that he is gone, it is hard to imagine a Marvel movie without him. I mean, of course, it will still be mindblowing, but I won't be eagerly waiting for Stan anymore to pop on the screen and shoot a snarky line…and that breaks my heart. via GIPHY Stan was probably the biggest fan of his own work, as evident by his dedicated appearances at every movie premiere, comic book conventions and public signings. © AP Keeping in mind that this was a man above 90, who like his peers, should've been resting or just be on the down-low and spend his time golfing, it was incredible how enthusiastic he always was. Stan was the biggest personification of the quote “age is just a number” and a walking contradiction to the common notion, that 'old people' are not cool. via GIPHY It does make one wonder that why did not take a break from his movie career? I mean, it would not have been out of the norm. Actors his age often silently walk away from the spotlight, but Stan was always there and never broke under the pressure of the industry. Back in 2016, Stan told the Hollywood Reporter the reason behind him not retiring, and the answer is typical Stan. “When you retire, you have a chance to do all the things you've always wanted to do. I've been doing all the things I've always wanted to do. I've always wanted to be involved in entertaining people.” Wow. If that's not the most incredible thing you've heard, then I don't know what is. via GIPHY The man knew what he and his work meant to his fans. He knew the importance of the universe that he had created and always reminded himself, that in a way, he was helping people. “I used to be embarrassed because I was just a comic book writer while other people were building bridges or going on to medical careers. And then I began to realize: entertainment is one of the most important things in people's lives. Without it, they might go off the deep end. I feel that if you're able to entertain, you're doing a good thing.” Stan once told the Washington Post. via GIPHY His life and his works are proof that you won't hate your job if you love what you do. It goes without saying that Stan Lee is irreplaceable and that his loss will take a while to sink in. Until then, fanboys like me are waiting for the next Avengers movie, where we're going to yell our lungs out when we see him on the screen again! via GIPHY
  16. Some people decide to be a bodybuilder and some people are destined to be one. Ronnie Coleman was a destined bodybuilder. The greatest the stage has ever seen. Arguably the greatest bodybuilder of all times, Ronnie won the Mr. Olympia a record 8 times, earning the title of the 'King' and the 'GOAT' of bodybuilding. Starting lifting at the age of 13 as a hobby with his main interest being rugby, Ronnie saw almost instant growth while training with weights. Soon, there was history being written. Ronnie rose to global fame with the sheer size and mass he brought to the stage, setting a new benchmark for Mass Monster era. Ronnie weighed 130-135 Kg on stage and 145-150 Kg during the off-season. He trained with moderate volume and high intensity. Ronnie believed in lifting heavy free weights. And by heavy, we mean really heavy! Weights That Will Make Any Grown Man Cry © YouTube In his prime, Ronnie moved an insane amount of iron which included 363 Kg Squats for 2 Reps, 1045 Kg Leg Press for 4 Reps, 365 Kg Deadlift for 2 Reps and 100 Kg dumbbell presses. He is surely the strongest Mr. Olympia ever. Ronnie contributes these heavy loads to his huge yet dense physique. How All The Heavy Lifting Came Back To Hurt King Ron © YouTube The weights, which built his body, also began to deteriorate it. Soon after retirement, Ronnie's spine and joints gave up almost entirely. This was because of through and through heavy lifting. Presently, he has gone through as many as 10 major surgeries, including spinal fusion, disc decompressions, and multiple hip replacements. Even before his first surgery in 2016, Ronnie did pay his dues to the gym by pushing 'Lite Weights' one more time. He was once asked that if he could go back in time, would he change anything about his training? He replied- “I would do 4 reps of 363 Kg Squat instead of 2.” The Final Heartbreak View this post on Instagram Two days after surgery and it's a miracle that I can walk. Normally I'm on my way to rehab so they can help me to learn to walk again. This is the best I've felt after my last 3 surgeries. God is truly blessing me this time around because he know that I definitely need the inspiration because lately I've been semi-depressed after all my surgeries. This is so amazing and I know some of you guys praying for me has a lot to do with this. I'm really in a state of shock because after the same results after the same surgery you kinda get use to being not able to walk and come to expect it. Thanks to each and everyone who prayed because it honestly and truly worked this time. God knows me way better than I know me and I'm overwhelmed with excitement and enjoyment. I am so much looking forward to seeing the day where no crutches or walkers is required. Hopefully that day comes sooner rather than later. #yeahbuddy #lightweightbaby #itstillaintnothingbutapeanut A post shared by Ronnie Coleman (@ronniecoleman8) on Sep 22, 2018 at 7:03pm PDT In a recent interview, King Ron gave a heartbreaking statement- that he might never be able to walk again. Ronnie blamed his surgeons for creating complications in his spinal operations. He added that he spent over 2 million dollars in just the last three surgeries and if the doctors wished, he would be walking long back. Ronnie Coleman's pure and raw passion for training has made him an inspirational figure, not just for bodybuilders but powerlifters, weightlifters and anyone who desires to get better at lifting.

  17. While people are busy criticising the BCCI for their decision of dropping MS Dhoni from the T20I squad for the West Indies and Australia series; Dhoni is busy taking wickets and giving a tough time to his opponents in the third ODI between India and West Indies. The match is currently being played in Pune. Clearly, age is just a number for this man, as at 37, Dhoni has once again proved that he's the fittest player in the team, after he took a spectacular catch to dismiss West Indies' player Chandrapaul Hemraj. Twitter/ BCCI The crowd went berserk and started cheering for Dhoni after witnessing the extraordinary dismissal. After all, it's not everyday that you see this kind of a catch. With this, Dhoni has given the perfect answer to all those who were questioning his fitness levels too. In the video shared by his fans, Dhoni can be seen running as fast as he can towards the ball and take a full-stretched dive to catch the ball. With this catch, Dhoni has proved that the selectors might drop him from the squad whenever they see fit, but he will never drop a crucial catch, which goes on to show how important he is for the team. MS Dhoni just took a stunning catch. This man is 37 years old. pic.twitter.com/8BEOg4O6rW — puneet ð (@puneet44567) October 27, 2018 In fact, his fans are reiterating the same as well. From taking a dig at BCCI to lauding Dhoni's fitness level, fans have flooded the social media with their reactions on the spectacular catch. He is proving everyday why he is best in this business . Age = 37 , Commitment to the Game=100%.

  18. For those of you who freeze at the thought of bungee jumping or river rafting, a rather safe way to feel the same thrill can be colouring your hair. You can come out looking like a stylish new person, or it can end disastrously - who knows? Therein lies the adventure, doesn't it? However, few things can match the pain of stepping out in public with an unflattering hair colour and the comments it brings forth - unless you have a thick skin and an elastic heart, that is not prone to vanity-inflicted injury. Here, we have compiled a list of 7 things you should never do, when it comes to colouring your hair: 1. If you're going to experiment with a weird hairstyle, please don't make it look appalling and all the more conspicuous by colouring it with a shocking blonde colour. If SRK can't pull it off, neither can you. © Twitter 2. Bangs are anyway not fashion-forward when it comes to men's hairstyles, please don't make them look worse by getting blonde highlights. They just look bad and need to go. © Twitter 3. Unless you're role-playing as a parrot or are all set to walk the runway for an avant-garde show, please avoid fluoro blues and greens. They are extremely tricky to pull off, and you need to be absolutely sure about the aesthetic when you take the plunge. Plus, pairing outfits with them can be a challenge. © Twitter 4. Always avoid going for a shade that is almost the same colour as your skin tone. Our hair frames our face, so the contrast helps. Also, going for an unflattering yellowish blonde colour will almost never work on a brown skin tone. © Twitter 5. Please don't go for metallic, shiny shades that are also super vibrant. They don't suit anyone and are just plain tacky. © Twitter 6. Spiked highlights need to go off the face of the earth. They just have this inexplicable wannabe, douchey vibe, that just can't be salvaged with the best of outfits. © Twitter 7. Remember the style where you were made to wear a cap with holes, and clumps of hair were pulled out through those holes and were coloured in a shocking shade - usually blonde or the ugliest shade of burgundy? Please don't go for that, for your own sake. If there is a definitive hairstyle that doesn't suit anyone on this planet, it's that one. © Twitter
  19. In the past few months, I've seen some insane reports on Indian news portals about people doing bizarre things onboard an aircraft. This ranges from a passenger trying to enter the cockpit to charge his phone to mistaking the emergency exit door for a toilet. While these are definitely extreme, as well as remote incidents, it does throw some light on the fact that Indians can be notorious travellers. Indian flyers have known to be too demanding, according to the many cabin crews that I've spoken to, and the country has a huge number of first-time flyers who aren't well educated about the flying norms. Here are a few things you should avoid doing to have a safe and enjoyable flight experience: 1. Don't Miss The Safety Briefing: © Reuters It's true that the safety briefing is often boring and the chances of an actual incident happening are low when flying, due to the strict safety norms followed by the airlines, but the very same instructions can save your life if you run out of luck. At the very least, take a few seconds to figure out where the nearest emergency exit is and how many rows away it is from your seat so that you can quickly deboard, in case of an untoward incident. Also, please don't take those safety cards home. A lot of times, people smuggle it and the passenger on the next scheduled flight is left without one, unless the aircraft goes into cleaning for the day. 2. Don't Get Too High: © Reuters Planes usually cruise around 35,000 feet, that's pretty much the best place to be on the whole planet. The clouds are way beneath you, the blue sky and the darkening atmosphere if you look further up. But, don't try to go any higher than that. While alcohol might initially help you fall asleep on a flight, it can ultimately mess with your sleep quality, dehydrate you, and trigger a lingering hangover that'll only make you irritable and lethargic. 3. Don't Recline During Meals: © Reuters This has always been a highly debatable point, but from my experience, it's always best to not recline during mealtime. This way, the person behind you has more space and it is the most courteous thing to do. Leg space is a scarcity as it is, wouldn't you hate it if someone barged into the little space you are left with, especially when having meals? 4. Don't Be An Ass To The Cabin Crew: © Reuters The flight attendants' first priority is to keep you safe, not to cater to your every whim, so use discretion when deciding when to hit that call button. It's always better to not order a drink or anything during the meal service, as moving around becomes particularly difficult. Also, the cabin crew is a mix of the hospitality and safety industry, don't assume you can boss them around or simply be rude to them for no reason. 5. Don't Be Irresponsible With Your Luggage: © Reuters Lastly, please don't be the person who puts a big suitcase and a backpack and a coat into the overhead bin on a full flight. The single-aisle aircraft, like the 737 and A320, are extremely low on space and it's always best to keep a smaller bag under the seat in front of you. You can take the bag off from there after take-off and won't miss out on leg space. Also, make sure you keep your luggage above your own seat and don't take up space anywhere else.
  20. Just last year, the #metoo movement hushed the world with its great attempt to highlight closeted abuse prevalent in Hollywood. The movement trickled down halfway across the world and a lot of women came forward and spoke about their #metoo stories and brought them out in the open. It's beautiful to imagine that a movement, which started off in such a fragile environment, became larger than life and acted like a ripple effect. Every woman had a story to share and while I deliberate on the term 'woman', I am not forgetting the men who've come out with their stories under the hashtag #mentoo, giving other men the strength to talk about the abuse they've gone through. © Pexels It took a year, but the movement reached Bollywood this year when Tanushree Datta, an actress popular in the late 2000's came out with her story about the prevalence of sexual harassment in the industry. We all know it's there and it happens but the incidents are usually hushed up in more ways than one and they get swept under the rug, time and again. When Tanushree came forward and spoke about being harassed by her then co-star and veteran actor Nana Patekar, the entire industry was taken aback and decided to sit on the fence, while she talked about what happened with her, ten years ago on the sets of the movie 'Horn Ok, Please'. More than debating about the fact that a reasonably successful man misbehaved with a significantly new actress on the sets of the movie, people started questioning her motive and the 'timeline' of abuse. © Thinkstock Images Yes, the timeline. This is what this article is predominantly about. By timeline, I mean the time it took for her to come out in the open and talk about what the 'perpetrator' had done. Many people contested the fact that she talked about the incident years after it had passed, so it held no relevance now. But let me tell you a not-so-hidden fact. Abuse has no timeline. There is no way to reason out logically what your body and mind go through and when is the right time to talk about it. When you go through 'abuse' of any sort, be it mental, sexual, emotional or physical, your body takes time to process it, simply because you 'freeze' at the time it's happening and your first instinct is self-preservation by processing the incident. That is why abuse and harassment survivors come out after years of the occurrence and finally talk about it. It also takes a lot of courage and strength to mentally gratify your mind to finally be verbal about the incident and it's certainly not easy to do so. So, when Tanushree Datta talks about it ten years later, it's really not to berate the man in question but to open a fresh new chapter in Bollywood or anywhere else for that matter, and talk about it openly, regardless of the time gone by. © Twitter To make things more clear about how the timeline is not a question of importance for an abuse survivor, I rounded up 5 brave men, who openly talk about abuse and harassment they went through and how long it took for them to come out in the open with it. Because, #mentoo. (1) "It Took Me 5 Years To Process It" "I was in the local in Mumbai from Dadar to Andheri and it was crowded like it usually is. It was a normal day and I was heading to work and I was lost in thought. Suddenly I felt a hand all over my back and going down to my pants. Since the train was too crowded, I tried to move forward an inch. The hand went away but it came back again and this time, it grabbed my behind (butt) and started stroking it. I was feeling embarrassed and humiliated but it wouldn't let go. I finally turned around to see who it was but I couldn't find the man. I felt really disgusted and humiliated and decided to skip work. I also kept thinking about my sister and my women friends who travel every other day and what they go through. At least this incident made me think about that. But I couldn't talk about it to anyone. I was embarrassed and scared that people would make fun of it. Last year, when men started putting up FB posts about #mentoo, I gathered the courage to put a post as well and I was shocked at how well responsive and helpful the audience was. It's been 6 years since that incident. It Took Me 5 Years To Process It" - Gaurav, 28 © Pexels (2) "I Didn't Tell Anyone For Over Ten Years" "I don't want to go into the details because I've gone over the details of the incident too many times in my head, but I was molested by a close family member as a child, a bunch of times when I was 12. It was just easy for 'her' to come into my room and touch me inappropriately and I knew it was wrong. Of course, she asked me to keep quiet about it but even after I was a grown man, I couldn't even think of talking about it. I would shy away from 'touch' and wasn't too sexually active. I didn't tell anyone over ten years. A few years ago when I was facing difficulty forgetting the incident, I started seeking professional help and spoke to a therapist about it and finally opened up. Now I am glad a lot of people are doing the same. I don't feel left out. Honestly, it's okay to talk about it. Just need to be ready, that's all"! - Anonymous, 24 © Thinkstock Images (3) "Time Has Nothing To Do With It" "Time has nothing to do with it. I took a long time to come out and talk about the abuse and assault I went through in my boarding school as a child. It took me years and years to gather courage, confidence and strength to talk about what I had been put through by my seniors in school. I was scarred for life and scared of everything. Now that I have faced my demons, I can stand up to anything. I even looked into the eyes of my abuser when I saw one of them recently and told him off. It's only when you process it and accept it consciously, you let go of it slowly and gain yourself back". - Amit, 27 © Pexels (4) "I Didn't Tell Anyone For Two Years" "I am gay and I was 'date raped' two years ago. Recently I talked about the incident vocally for other gay men to come out and talk about similar instances. I feel it's not about the gender but about what you go through as a human being. I didn't tell anyone for two years because I was humiliated and raped without even my knowledge. But today when I recall the incident, I know I am safe talking about it, even though it happened two years ago. It took me that long to come to terms with it, and what I want to say is that it doesn't matter how long it takes for you to talk about abuse, as long as you bring it out in the open and face it, you're good and you're strong". - Rajat, 30 (name changed) © Pexels (5) "I Was Abused At 5 And I Am 50 Now" I went through sexual abuse at 5 and I am 50 now. This is the first time I am talking about it apart from talking to my therapist. I feel confident enough to talk about it now. I was abused by a man, while I was travelling with my mother on a train. I kept quiet for 45 years because I thought no one could understand what I went through. But when I met my wife, I told her about the small fears I had and she helped me a lot in opening up about it. Abuse has no age and when you want to speak about it has no timeline. You can come out whenever you want with it and you'll still hold your dignity intact. You will gain strength and courage to talk about it." - Praveen, 50 © Pexels Really, abuse and harassment, sexual or otherwise have no timeline. Recently I read a 90-year-old woman spoke about the abuse she went through when she was 10! Give yourself time and patience to deal with it accurately to process it properly and talk about it courageously, whenever you are ready.
  21. Disclaimer: At MensXP Health we are neither against, nor for the usage of steroids. It's completely a personal choice. Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs) or Anabolic Androgenic Steroids (AAS) are the bread and butter of many fitness professionals these days. Either they take them, or they give it to their clients, or a combination of the two happens. Well, the advantages are pretty obvious and when you learn of them, it is that magic solution you would love to be on. As you will put twice the muscle mass just sitting at home vs. someone who would slog their ass in the gym day in and day out as shown in the study by Bhasin et. al. and mentioned in this article. But That Is The Good Part. What About The Bad, And Even The Ugly? In this piece, I would be covering the harsh side-effects of taking these drugs that you should know of before deciding to jump on them. © YouTube 1. Acne Taking PEDs, especially testosterone, has almost everyone using it develop acne on their shoulders, chest, and back. This is because the hormones interfere with the pores of the skin. In certain cases, severe acne is also observed leaving permanent scars or marks in those affected areas. 2. Balding As some steroids increase testosterone, it leaves men more prone to a receding hairline or balding. Not everyone who takes steroids will experience balding but those who are already losing their hair or have a thin hairline will almost all the time go fully bald on the usage of anabolic steroids. 3. Testicles Shrink Due to the increase in testosterone by injecting, the balance of testosterone to estrogen (yes, men too have it) goes for a toss and this can lead to your testicles getting shrunk. This is one of the common side effects observed in a majority of constant users. 4. Testicular Atrophy Continuous usage of anabolic steroids has shown to completely shut down natural testosterone production which ultimately leads to hypogonadism aka testicular atrophy aka bye bye balls. 5. Development Of Breast Tissue Due to the increase in the estrogen levels due to the usage of some anabolic steroids, the mammary gland or the breast tissue develops and grows in size. When this happens, a lot of men develop the breast tissue and it can lead to the formation of man boobs and gyno. 6. Increased Risk Of Heart Disease A few side effects of steroid usage to the heart are enlargement of the heart, hardening of the arteries, higher blood pressure, and huge elevations in the artery-clogging cholesterol LDL. A certain degree of these side effects is commonly seen across the board. 7. Damaged Liver Certain steroids can cause damage to your liver on the same lines as that of heavy alcohol consumption. Very serious conditions are rare but they tend to happen in a certain percentage of heavy drug users. 8. Roid Rage Research has consistently shown that use of anabolic steroids can affect your personality and mood. A study showed that athletes who used anabolic steroids had a 20% higher risk of mood swings and depression. It can even result in an increase in aggression or rage. So these are just some of the side effects one may end up facing once they jump on gear or anabolic steroids. And long-term abuse has also resulted in permanent disabilities or in severe cases, death. Is The Risk Worth Taking? Not In My Opinion © Pixabay I hope this piece gives you adequate information about the bad and the ugly side of drug usage and help you make a more informed decision.

  22. He may be constantly surrounded by controversy but nothing can affect his fame. The more people hate on him, the more love and loyalty Salman Khan gets from his fans. There is something impenetrable about his persona which makes it looks that nothing can touch his stardom. While it takes just one mishap to sabotage a celebrity's status, Salman is a classic case of soaring high, even more so when calamity strikes. With the changing times in Bollywood, almost every yesteryear star is finding himself being replaced, but Bhaijaan's legacy cannot be touched. He is a 'lambi race ka ghoda' and no one can deny that. Interestingly, while today his movies mint 100 crores in a blink, there was a time when tons of his film didn't even see the light of the day. Here we have a list some movies that he signed up for, which unfortunately never made it to the screens: 1. Ran Kshetra © Rajshree Bhagyashree and Salman made us fall in love with them in 'Maine Pyaar Kiya' and soon signed another project 'Ran Kshetra'. However, the movie production was put on hold when Bhagyashree decided to get married, and soon, it was shelved. 2. Aye Mere Dost Work on the movie began with a song recording, but due to unknown circumstances, nothing happened after that. The film starred Arbaaz Khan, Divya Bharti, Karishma Kapoor along with Salman Khan. Later, the song was used for another movie of Bhai's named 'Majhdhar' in 1996. 3. Raam © Twitter This movie was meant to be Sohail Khan's directorial debut but things at times don't go as planned. Despite half the movie being shot already, the production stopped because of financial troubles. The film starring Salman, Anil Kapoor and Pooja Bhatt, later had to be shelved. 4. Dus One of Salman Khan's most anticipated films was axed when director Mukul S. Anand suddenly passed away. The movie had a powerful lineup including Salman, Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon, and Shilpa Shetty. Though the film was never released we got to hear the iconic track 'Hindustani' in 1999, that was loved by millions and still is. 5. Dil Hai Tumhara © Twitter In 1991, Rajkumar Santoshi began working on this film starring Salman Khan, Sunny Deol and Meenakshi Sheshadri. They hardly wrapped up just one schedule, when Santoshi signed for another movie, agreeing to direct Bobby Deol's 'Barsaat'. 'Dil Hai Tumhara' was pushed for a while but ultimately, had to be wrapped up forever. 6. Gherao © Pinterest In order to make up for 'Dil Hai Tumhara', Salman had to sign for 'Gherao' opposite Manisha Koirala. Rajkumar Santoshi helmed the film, but once again just after the mahurat, the movie was called off. 7. Buland © Pinterest Clearly, there was some dark shadow over Salman and his movies back then, as even 'Buland' was shelved after half of the film was complete. The movie starred Somy Ali, who he was dating at the time. 8. Raju Raja Ram © Twitter Starring Salman, Jackie Shroff, and Govinda, this movie was talked about a lot but the project was called off in the end. Director David Dhawan had to shelve the project due to a financial crunch. 9. Aankh Micholi © Pinterest This would have been another double role project for Salman Khan, but the actor had his reservations to do a movie like 'Judwaa' once again and the movie had to be dropped. 10. Jalwa © Twitter Ketan Dhawan signed Salman, Sanjay Dutt and Armaan Kohli for this action flick. However, later he decided to make a film in another genre altogether, resulting in shutting this project.
  23. While the conventional mindset has forever been slightly bent towards full-length features and commercial movies; things are now changing with short films gradually taking centre-stage and getting the attention they deserve. And 'Plus Minus' is the latest addition to the list of amazing short films like 'Churri', 'Khujli', 'Chutney' and 'Lust Stories' (ok, this was a series of short films). © BB Ki Vines If you are even remotely active on social media, there is no way on earth that you guys don't know about 'BB Ki Vines' and Bhuvan Bam. And if you still had to google his name after reading this, then trust me, you have been missing out on some of the most hilarious videos ever made.

  24. Dear Dad, I know letters aren't our thing. We are not really good at expressing ourselves. But here's a thought - let's work on that like we've worked on every other thing together. You are my rock and as rocks go, you are the strongest of them all. Over the years, I've learned a lot from you (not sure if you were going for that or I just picked on them). Those life lessons have shaped me to be the man I am today. Just to give you a big SHOUTOUT and thank you for everything, here's my list of Life Lessons that I'll treasure forever. 1. Family First! Unsplash When it comes to a family, there is no you and me - it's only 'US'. And that's the biggest and most important lessons I'd like to take with me wherever I go. Dad, just want you to know that no matter where life takes me, my priority will always be my Family because our life is clearly incomplete without our everyday tussles and infinite love. 2. Equality & Respect Unsplash I'm proud to say that I'm a Feminist and it's all thanks to you. I know you don't believe in tags and nor do you understand Feminism but it's something you have done every single day. You never differentiated between me and Di. Our curfew timings were the same, the housework we shared never defined our genders and that right there was you and mom, raising a Feminist son. 3. You Showed Us That Men Can Be Emotional Unsplash You taught us that being emotional doesn't undermine our masculinity, unlike what the society perceives. You showed us how to be vulnerable around the ones we love and make this vulnerability our strength. 4. You Taught Us It's Okay To Make Mistakes Unsplash No one is perfect and even superheroes like you can make mistakes. But the way you embraced them and turned them into a learning curve showed me how to be a better person. You told me you are allowed to fail without being a failure. 5. Your Lectures Taught Me About Second Chances Pexels Every single time I goofed up I'd be stuck at the receiving end of your boring old lectures (or at least, that's what I thought of them). Today, I realize that each of those lectures, were you giving me another chance to better myself. 6. You Taught Me About Sharing The Little Moments In Life Pexels Be it a promotion, a heartbreak or another important milestone in my life - sharing it with your loved ones is just a great reminder that no matter what, there are people to whom you matter the most. And the countless bits of advice that come along my way are of great help too. Remember that time you and Di couldn't stop going on about my finances and saving after my promotion? Well, let's just say I've finally given into your advice and bought my first LIC. I have had the pleasure of learning 'how-to' everything by you, papa. Thank you.
