  1. A good part of our life was spent sitting through hours upon hours of lectures and senseless scribbles covering the endless pages of our notebooks. As we sat through six long hours of cramming our brains with “quality education”, for twenty-two days a month, we often wished our classes came equipped with something “more”, something that would make our days a little more bearable at the end of the fourth hour. © Getty Images After years of passing through the same gates, year after year and loitering in the same corridor, we secretly begin to crave for a change around the place we called school. But what this school in Madurai has done for its pupils, is surely one of the best ways of ensuring children look forward to spending their time at the “temple of learning”. © Twitter-ANI Named the Madura College Higher Secondary School, it looks like a train stationed at a railway platform with tiny tots moving in and out of the coaches-cum-classrooms. The entire primary school has been designed like a train that plies between Madurai and Chennai and looks every bit like an IRCTC train. © Twitter-ANI From the markings of the train, to the details painted on the walls of the school, this school-cum-train is giving us all the feels of a passenger waiting on the platform to jump aboard the train for a ride of their lives. The smiling faces of the young students roaming about the premises in their uniforms and wide grins only prove how happy and excited they are to be there. People have also lauded this move and praised the initiative taken by the school management to make the space more interesting for young kids. A wonderful theme, imagining school as vehicle to accept intake of uneducated raw state of Mind and transport them to a state of educated one. — S Samanta (@suksa) June 12, 2019 Nice Creativity...Creative Minds At Work — Bhoot Purv Sainik (@bhootpurvsainik) June 12, 2019 @PiyushGoyal this is interesting sir. — Subbaiah Naidu (@NaiduSubbaiah) June 12, 2019
  2. Those who have seen the trailer of 'Kabir Singh' featuring Shahid Kapoor would have an idea that something great is in store for them. As soon as the teaser of 'Kabir Singh' was unveiled, Twitter users began comparing it to the Vijay-starrer 'Arjun Reddy'. Fans are excited to see Shahid on the big screen and nail this character to its fullest. But guess what? Shahid wasn't the first choice for the role. It was Arjun Kapoor. Yes, you heard it right. Director Sandeep Vanga, in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, confirmed that he had approached Arjun for the role initially. When the director was asked if the makers approached Arjun Kapoor, he said, “Yeah, but before that Shahid and I were already in talks, so I couldn't just jump to another actor It's not about whose acting caliber is greater but it's about the commitment.” Well, we wonder what would it have been to see Arjun play this character. Coming back to Shahid, he has left no stone unturned to get into this character and the trailer has created the right noise for the film. Watch the trailer here: The film's story revolves around a surgeon whose life changes completely after a bad breakup. He uses drugs and alcohol to get over the pain that break-up has caused him. The film also features Kiara Advani in lead role and is set to release on June 21. It will be interesting to see how the movie shapes up. Are you excited for this one? Do let us know in the comments section below.
  3. Viral internet challenges can be rather funny. The Tide pod challenge was essentially people popping tide pods like candy, which was a major health challenge ad the kiki challenge clearly caused more harm than good. But then there are also interesting challenges that make you discover something about yourself that you never knew before. A Twitter user recently discovered similar looking freckles on both her wrists and made a post about it asking fellow Twitter users if they have them too. This led to thousands of replies confirming the existence of similar looking freckles for these users. Here's how it started: ladies..... u got a freckle on the middle of ur wrist or is this a myth lmao pic.twitter.com/VpwkkeWKTj — aaryn â° (@aarynwhitley) May 22, 2019 and here are some responses that might shock you: ladies..... u got a freckle on the middle of ur wrist or is this a myth lmao pic.twitter.com/VpwkkeWKTj — aaryn â° (@aarynwhitley) May 22, 2019 While this internet challenge doesn't involve doing something freakish, it certainly led people into discovering freckles on their wrists that they had no clue about which in fact was very freakish. People were amused to see other people with similar looking freckles on their wrists. But like all internet challenges, this challenge too does not have a solid ground. You might discover freckles at the back of your wrists or you might not. Personally, I did not have freckles at the back of my wrists, however, fellow writer Kartik Iyer had a freckle each on both his hands. © Karthik Iyer © Karthik Iyer This only goes on to show that for some people, this challenge, in fact, holds true.
  4. Here's something actually funny, although Mumbai police is not amused at all. Recently, while Hrithik and Tiger were on the sets a movie they're shooting for (the name isn't disclosed yet), Mumbai Police supposedly arrested two men who were suspected to be terrorists, from the set. © Twitter Well, the two men were shooting along with Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shorff and had stepped out to the cigarette shop in their shoot attire. When the locals saw them dressed like how they were, they panicked and called the cops. The men were casually strolling around, casually dressed like bombers, wearing bullet vests, when Mumbai Police was called for aid. © Twitter For a lot of people this story may come off as actually hilarious, but for the police it wasn't really funny because it wasn't true. The Mumbai police took to their official Twitter account and actually denied coming and arresting the two men from the film set. In their Tweet, Mumbai Police wrote: Mumbai Police has not picked up any such persons. Kindly verify facts. https://t.co/vGOi2X3dYi — Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) 30 May 2019 But honestly, if this did happen: After an hour-long search operation, #Mumbai police arrested 2 men suspected to be terrorists, but later turned out to be extras on the sets of Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff's upcoming action film. #TV9News pic.twitter.com/o74uib9PQQ — Tv9 Gujarati (@tv9gujarati) 29 May 2019 It would have literally been the funniest peice of entertainment news right about now. But alas, the Mumbai Police did confirm no one was arrested, so we wonder what really happened then? Maybe they did come there when the locals called them in panic and after a thorough investigation, realised they were indeed not terrorists but the supporting cast of the film. Well, this only goes to tell us one thing. Don't believe everything you read on social media, even though it's the funniest thing you've read in the longest time!
  5. Playing cricket for the most dominating force in the game, Team India, is not easy. More than the opponents, the passionate fans of the Men in Blue stay ready with a mouthful when an athlete does not perform, is struggling with a bad form or fails to win matches for his side regardless of how difficult the situation was when he got to the crease. One such athlete is Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who has been questioned, taunted and criticised about the way he plays in the hour of need for the Bleed Blue side. The fact that the former skipper is getting old, does not help either. But during India's second warm-up match in the ICC World Cup 2019 which was against Bangladesh, Dhoni looked like his old self. Like a stallion, with nothing but brute strength flowing through his veins. Scoring his ton in just 78 deliveries, the Ranchi born was making the ball fly left, right and centre on command, bringing the Indian batting order back in line with the help of KL Rahul, after an abysmal start to the innings with openers Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma disappointing yet again. So when Dhoni scored his century in fashion with a strong six over the bowler's head and raised his bat in the air to an awestruck audience, an overjoyed Virat Kohli was seen abusing in excitement, acknowledging his teammate's achievement. Indian stand-up comedian Papa CJ uploaded this video from the friendly match between India and Bangladesh last evening: Classic Dhoni and classic Virat ððð pic.twitter.com/jplLRvAVPy — Papa CJ (@PapaCJ) May 28, 2019 Albeit, Dhoni has been struggling a little bit with his form in the 50 over format of the game lately, but he is no stranger to hitting big shots. Likewise, Kohli is no stranger to expressing his emotions with the help of some cuss words. Therefore, Papa CJ's caption: “Classic Dhoni and classic Virat” makes absolute sense. And while parents would have had a tough time explaining their kids what the Indian skipper was caught mouthing on national television, his emotions were well understood by the fans of Indian cricket and those of MS Dhoni. Twitter joined in and congratulated Dhoni on his brilliant knock: Dhoni is such a beast. — Saqib Mansoor (@wearyscribe) May 28, 2019 Mahi maar raha hain — #@ππ|£ #$@vv@n+ (@AmitSawant4686) May 28, 2019 What a knock from Dhoni! ððLove you so much ðð #MSD pic.twitter.com/Ig4bVXsjvM — HARSH Chopra (@imchoprahc) May 29, 2019 Dhoni dispatched ball out of the park for a 6ï¸â£ in style. Kohli: Wow man... Shot yaar ð#INDvBAN #Dhoni #dhoniisback #CWC2019 #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/bRO3DJ3g0y — ð¡ð®ðð¿ð² ðð ðð â®ï¸ (@imamnazre01) May 28, 2019 Love played so well â¤ï¸#INDvBAN #IndvsBan #Dhoni pic.twitter.com/XWycF1JHhy — Shweta Joshi (@jshweta_) May 28, 2019 Team India is set to officially begin their World Cup journey on 5th June 2019 against Faf du Plessis' South Africa at the Rose Bowl Cricket Ground, West End, Hampshire.
  6. With a rather abrupt ending to 'Game Of Thrones', the series finale has left some rather gaping questions, that have now sadly become dead ends for the show. Here's a list of unanswered questions from the show that we will probably never get the answers to: 1. What Was The Point Of Jon's Heritage? © HBO Was there even a point to Jon being a Targaryen? The R+L=J theory was significant to the plotline at the very beginning and had caused a lot of noise. I remember when I first started watching the show, I was rather obsessed with Jon Snow's parentage. At that point, the mystery wasn't the identity of his parents, because it was safely assumed that Ned Stark was his biological father. The real question was, who was Jon's mother? And this used to be subject of many passionate debates by the fans. But now that we know that he was a true born Targaryen with the highest claim to the Iron Throne, does this information, which by the way is the only reason that David Benioff, D. B. Weiss got rights to produce the show in the first place, not matter at all? In the aftermath of the Queen'sassaination when the Lords gathered around to listen to what Tyrion had to say (who, by the way, is a prisoner at this point) and justified why Bran should be King, why did he not consider Jon and his claim to the Throne? Despite slaying the Queen, he does have a pretty strong claim to the Throne. 2. Varys And His Birds © HBO Firstly, Varys' execution was damn shady. How can the Master Of Whisperers, who is so conniving that he survived the most unfavourable of circumstances, be so naive? Talking to Jon directly out in the open was not a great idea, but it certainly is not something Varys would do. What happened to him? Did he hit his head against the wall that caused him to take dumb but potentially life-destroying decisions? But anyway, when he's summoned for his execution, he drops his ring in a pot and burns this one letter that he was writing, which contained the truth about what was going on. The rest of the letters were enclosed and sent off. What happened to them? Do the Lords not know? Why is there no mention of this? And if he did manage to get the message sent across, why is there no stir in all the Kingdoms of Westeros? 3. Arya's White Horse © Twitter Arya finds a white horse at the end of the penultimate episode. Some argued that there could possibly be biblical notions attached to this White Horse. Arya is then seen riding out of King's Landing. But wait, in the next episode, she's seen in King's Landing again. How does that work? What was the horse for then? To traverse past the dead burnt bodies and not step on them? It doesn't make any sense, but rather sounds preposterous instead. 4. Is Winter Still Coming? © HBO Talking about the long drawn-out catchphrase synonymous to 'GoT', we deserved to know if Winter was finally coming in the end or not. The new council meeting by Bran was set in the background of something that looked more spring-like? So, is Winter finally gone for good? 5. Bran the Broken © HBO If every main character had a purpose for which they were brought on the show, what was Bran's purpose? We've been told that the Three-Eyed Raven knows everything and has immense power but if that's the case, why doesn't Bran use it? Why does he sit quietly observing what he already knows is going to happen. And the case against him for not changing things doesn't work either. Like he has done many times before, why did he not warg into someone and potentially save thousands of lives in King's Landing? This does somehow make him an accomplice to genocide. But in retrospect, this could've possibly been his plan all along? In normal circumstances, no one would make Bran the King. He's a cripple who apparently can't father children and couldn't possibly further the lineage. And in 'Game of Thrones', we've seen the darkest of things being pulled off by characters just get their hands on the throne. Everyone's creepily obsessed with it, case in point, Daenerys. Could it be possible, that Bran schemed it all in his favour because he can clearly control the past and the present? 6. The Honeycomb and the Jackass This might seem a little irrelevant, but hear me out first. One of the series' long-running secrets, Tyrion's story about bringing a honeycomb and a jackass to a brothel, is a legend in its own right. The joke had been teased two times before the finale- when he was a prisoner at the Eyrie, in Season 1, and during a scene in Season 6, where he shared wine with Grey Worm and Missandei. In Season 1, during Tyrion's trial, he attempts to crack the honeycomb joke, which seems so out-of-place because he's a prisoner being tried for his life, why is he being given the liberty to speak at all? Then in the final episode of Season 8, when Tyrion is Hand of the King to Bran and has a Small Council Meeting, he brings up the joke again, and for a moment, we feel like we are finally going to hear the end of it, which would be perfect given how the show was coming to an end. But, no, the camera cuts and we realize how irrelevant this discussion was. This clearly makes a strong case for bad writing. Instead of showing what's relevant for better closure, we get this. A pointless, incomplete joke. 7. Where Are Daario Nahaaris, Meera Reed & Ellaria Sand? © HBO Daario Nahaaris was a Tyroshi mercenary that was once Dany's adviser and lover but was left behind by Dany when she realized forging new alliances in King's Landing will be more fruitful than taking old ones. What is he doing now? What about Meereen? Meera Reed got Bran back safely to Winterfell, protecting him from the White Walkers and then the plot conveniently forgot about her. Ellaria Sand was locked up in the dungeons to die after watching her daughter die. Did she end up dying? Why did we not get closure on these crucial characters? 8. Why Is There Still A Night's Watch? © HBO What does a Night's Watch defend if there are no White Walkers in the first place? Does it need to exist anymore? A question that no one seems to bother about, except Jon, when he was exiled to the Night's Watch. This is probably why he abandoned it and set on an adventure to discover a world further North. If these scenes held no significance to the main narrative, they shouldn't have been included in the first place. Instead, they could've probably been replaced with significant content that would've made Dany's and Jon's actions convincing, leading up to a satisfactory finale with no loopholes.
  7. It's always a given that you can have your cake and eat it too. Apart from being an idiom, it's quite literal as well. I mean that's what you do on your birthday mostly, isn't it? Well, you can do that, but in Gujarat you can't smear someone's face with cake in public and if you're caught doing that, you go to jail. © Pintrest After the PUBG ban, the Surat police has decide to ban cake smearing acts in public, as it's become a nuisance every passing day, as birthday celebrations are starting to turn violent. Along with cake smearing, using adhesive tapes and chemical foam in public is banned too, which people are currently and openly indulging in, on birthdays. We're guessing the usual birthday trend in Gujarat got a tad boring for people to use other means to bring in the celebrations. © Pintrest However, lawyer Apar Gupta, who has a copy of the order, translated in English from Gujarati, says this order is worrisome and has stated his reasons, as to why. The Surat Police has now banned smearing of cakes in public under Section 144 of the CRPC. This comes after the use of the same provision to ban PUBG game and the arrest of young college going students. Can someone translate the order to English? pic.twitter.com/llDQTeW4W9 — Apar Gupta (@apargupta84) 15 May 2019 A translation has been provided and it is pointed out that cake smearing is tied to injury and public nuisance. A summary is below. Let me at the same time point why this is still worrisome. https://t.co/jgCjLv0pqC — Apar Gupta (@apargupta84) 15 May 2019 1. Expansion of police power: Section 144 is titled as, "power to issue order in urgent cases of nuisance or apprehended danger". It is an emergency/curfew power intended against unlawful assembly. One must ask is, "immediate prevention or speedy remedy is desireable" ? — Apar Gupta (@apargupta84) 15 May 2019 2. Pre-existence of criminal laws/muncipal codes: Provisions under the IPC contain specific crimes for assault, battery and simple hurt. Further most muncipal codes (this may vary in gujarat) prevent littering and impose fines. Such provisions have well articulated ingredients. — Apar Gupta (@apargupta84) 15 May 2019 3. The proportion of the cake smearing: As pointed out by many, the proportion of the language prohibiting cake smearing is tiny when compared to the thrust of the order. However, such passing language itself due to its lack of articulation may lead to arbitrary application. — Apar Gupta (@apargupta84) 15 May 2019 Taken collectively, one has to ask -- whether an expansion of police powers under Section 144 when pre-existing, well reasoned laws exist to prohibit cake smearing in public is something that should be tolerable? We will get not only the politicians but the policing we deserve. — Apar Gupta (@apargupta84) 15 May 2019 "Taken collectively, one has to ask -- whether an expansion of police powers under Section 144 when pre-existing, well reasoned laws exist to prohibit cake smearing in public is something that should be tolerable? We will get not only the politicians but the policing we deserve" Apar Gupta, Lawyer Our main concern though is the adhesive tape and chemical foam that's used on people's faces to celebrate birthdays. Shouldn't that be the primary concern and not cake smearing, which is indeed harmless? I mean, if people are injuring the other person by smearing cake, that's another story altogether, but if they're doing it out of sheer jest, I guess it should be okay! But honestly, cake definitely shouldn't be wasted by smearing it on someone's face! © Twitter "Do you really think it will make a difference in Gujarat to ban anything further? We all have the facts and figures, don't we? Any forceful act whether it is ragging or eve teasing is fallacious but does that mean the state will ban something as basic as playing PUBG or smearing cake on someone's face for fun?" - Ankita, Asst. MArketing & communications manager, Ahmedabad Surat Police Commissioner, Satish Sharma issued the prohibitory orders on Monday, after various accounts of aggressive and violent behaviour came to light. Aren't there existing laws to tackle violence? How come Surat police is acting like a law maker? — ishan aranjikal (@ishotu) 15 May 2019 Surat is practically a police state after 23:30. With their need to regulate everything, I was expecting this to happen. — bhas kar-wai (@bolnabey) 15 May 2019 The cake bit comes at the end. They're talking about students putting cello tape on other's face, and applying some sort of chemical. That seems the primary concern, and then they talk about smearing cake. — Pratik Sinha (@free_thinker) 15 May 2019 Its about beating someone in the name of "birthday bumps", smashing cakes, foams and other forms of material which creates nuisance at public space like roads, bus stop,brts stops etc. Its for creating "mess" and also "bad behaviour" in public spaces. — BD (@BDsVouch) 15 May 2019 To summarize, it's an order against public nuisance which can harm those involved. Detailed summary in pic. Cake smearing is a tiny part. Bulk is against public celebration and usage of chemicals, tape & foam directly applied to the face. pic.twitter.com/sKOe1C38Nu — Harshal Modi (@grondmaster) 15 May 2019 According to TOI, section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure has been set in motion from May 14, to July 12. “We received information about incidents in which individuals suffered injuries in a birthday celebration,” Satish Sharma told Times of India. It's a little sad that birthdays will have to go traditional again, with no cake touching any part of anyone's face but maybe to tackle aggressiveness in the state because of it, this step was imperative. Well, I guess people should just stick to old-school and just feed each other cake instead of smearing it on faces.
  8. 'Game Of Thrones' is not just one of the biggest shows possibly on the planet right now, but also an eyebrow raiser for a tonne of things. From the conniving plots to the gruesome deaths that might've affected millions of viewers across the globe to the dream pay packages for the actors, there are a number of reasons 'GOT' is special. via GIPHY A leading publication broke the salaries down for us: 'Game of Thrones' season 8 is a total of 434 minutes. Among the actors, the actor who plays the actor Cersei Lannister, Lena Headey screen time's is only 25 of those minutes. Another leading publication reported that her salary is around $1.2 million which comes down to 8,40,03,000 rupees, a remuneration which is on the same level as her co-stars Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Kit Harington, and Peter Dinklage. © Getty Images And apparently, her remuneration per minute would come down to $48,000, which would come down to Rs 33,60,000 approximately. And if we consider what action dominated her screen time this season: it would come down to her sipping wine and staring into the void from the safe (ahem not after the last episode: via GIPHY It is important to note at this point that Cersei Lannister's character played a central role in the preceding five seasons as a woman for her unpredictable game-changing moves in order to stick around the Iron Throne. This season, however, her character did not see much light as the central focus shifted to the White Walkers. But earning Rs 33 lakhs per minute for sipping wine and overseeing a war being shot is certainly a dream job we wouldn't mind having.
  9. Hickeys are the best and worst at the same time. This innocent-looking bruise can get you in trouble with your mum or can be rather embarrassing at work, but boy, are they fun to get! © Getty Images Before you learn to hide them, it's important to understand what they really are. While making out, kissing for a longer duration can sometimes create a vacuum, which if has a stronghold, breaks capillaries. The broken capillaries cause 'ecchymosis', which is a medical term for what is commonly known as a 'bruise.' If you find yourself in a situation with visible 'bruises' inflicted with a well-meant intention, that you don't want your co-workers or friends, or more importantly, your mother/family to notice, there are a few hacks like rubbing a cold spoon around the purple area or toothbrush bristles, but those tools are not always accessible or guarantee results each time. Regardless, excuses like a 'mosquito bite' or a 'spider bite' or a 'fight bruise' or any other random excuse might not work each time if people ask you what's up with your bruise. Especially your family. But hey, a scarf is not the only solution for hickeys and refraining from hickey action doesn't help either. But the overall health of a person and whether your skin is moisturized or not can play a huge role in determining how long a hickey stays put. So, remember to always moisturize and eat a balanced diet which is great for you either way. If you have a hickey that isn't going away, the following tips can help: 1. Headphones © Getty Images Headphones work really well if you want to hide your hickeys from your family. Just wear your headphones around your neck and voila! Say, you've to meet someone for ten minutes and step out. 2. Collared Shirts © Getty Images Shirts usually have a collar high enough to hide that bruise. Just make sure you're buttoning-up high so there is no scope for exposure. 3. Concealers © Getty Images Don't shy away from using this cosmetic. The formula works like magic in blending your bruise with your skin. 4. Aloe Vera © Getty Images Aloe Vera gel calms the blood clot and helps to nix the redness. 5. Vitamin K © Getty Images Vitamin K rich creams are good for minimizing redness instantly. A great remedy for major hickeys. These hacks should save you from all the awkward situations that hickeys land you in.
  10. Hard work is important and so is experiencing failure. If you don't succeed at the first attempt, don't lose hope and give up. Gather yourself and try again. And again. And again, until you succeed. Facebook Phoenix, an adorable little kid was in his martial arts class, trying to break a board. He did not have to break the board to advance to the next level, but he still wanted to do it. Phoenix's proud mother shared the emotional video on social media. Facebook Before I continue with Phoenix's story, let's give a big shoutout to his friends and the instructor. These are the kind of friends people deserve to have in their lives. After some failed attempts, Phoenix was very dejected and was in tears as he couldn't succeed. Suddenly, the room was filled with echoes of kids chanting Phoenix's name, cheering him up and encouraging him. Finally, the kid broke the board and taught us one of the biggest life lessons - Never give up, no matter how hard things are in life. Childhood is a crucial time for any and every kid. The things they learn in their growing years, shape their personality and future. While they learn a lot of things in life, sometimes, they end up teaching us adults some valuable life lessons with their innocent acts. Just like how Phoenix taught us to never give up.
  11. Before you make a face at “yet another Mother's Day article”, let us tell you that this piece will tell you why we need to celebrate our mothers every day because of all these selfless and amazing things they do for us every single day. Yet, most often than not, we take everything that she does for granted and let alone saying 'Thank You', we don't even acknowledge it. We've listed down such 10 priceless and utterly selfless things our mothers do for us all the time that we don't thank her for: 1. For Being Our Biggest Cheerleader © Sharma Productions No matter what sort of a 'low' we are going through, be it personal or professional, our mothers always come through as our biggest cheerleaders. They make us see the silver lining, lift our spirit and fill our very being with hope and positivity just with their words. 2. For Always Knowing When We Need Our Favourite Food One look at us and mothers know when it is time to whip up our favourite dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Be it squabbles at the playground, or struggles with homework and tests, our moms always know how to make our mood better. 3. For Magically Retrieving Our Misplaced Goods © Hope Productions We would like to challenge all of you reading this, if your mother was ever unable to find a lost pair of socks, your favourite t-shirt or your misplaced assignment. It can't be. She magically finds them all! 4. For Erasing Every Nightmare With Her Soothing Touch As kids, it was her we rushed to every time a nightmare threatened our peaceful slumber. As grown-ups, our mothers still shoo away our monsters for us with her soothing caresses and kind words. 5. For Always Lending Their Ears & Laps To Us In Time Of Need © Dharma Productions If there is one person in this whole wide world who would listen to all our crap and never judge us on whatever comes out of our mouth, it is our mother. She is the best listener and guide, and always lends her ears and lap when we most need to find some solace in this maddening world. 6. For Always Keeping Us Well-Fed & Sparkling Clean Can we argue with this one? We always seem under-nourished to our mothers, who seem to find immense joy in (over)feeding us to their heart's content. What's more, we owe all our sparkling and well-done laundry to her. 7. For Convincing Our Dad On Multiple Occasions © Rajkumar Hirani Films Well, we have all been there and didn't have enough hugs to make up for all the times she faced the heat of convincing our dads to get us something or allow us to be somewhere. She has done this so many times over the years, it seems like the most normal thing now. 8. For Staying Up Late Just To Check On Us No matter how many times we told them to go to bed, our moms wait on us when we are out working late or partying with our friends. She wouldn't retire to bed until she made sure her kid is back home safe and sound. 9. For Sticking Up For Us At All Times © Dharma Productions No matter the innumerable times we have had to live through the chappal-belan beatings from our mothers, they will turn into our most fierce protectors and advocates in times of need. 10. For Believing In Us & Our Dreams Whenever we stopped believing in ourselves or gave up on our dreams, our moms helped us rebuild that faith in ourselves and our dreams. We might stop believing, but they would never do that. For all this and much more, thank you, Ma.
  12. No matter what part of the world we are in, education is always given a ton of importance. In a way, it is projected as the only key to attaining wisdom, that would ultimately allow us to lead a life we are not only proud of, but one that also takes care of all our material needs throughout our lives. (c) Vinod Chopra Films Yet, what most people, especially in our society choose to overlook, is the fact that an education isn't the only “key” to getting there. A sharp mind, crafty skills and an inherent talent can also bring all that, and much more, to a person's life. Recently, during an appearance on 'The Kapil Sharma Show', 'Student of The Year 2' actor Tiger Shroff was asked by host Kapil Sharma what was the difference between a real and reel college, to which Tiger said that he was not aware of the difference since he never attended college, to begin with. He added that immediately after school he joined the sets of his first film 'Heropanti'. (c) Twitter Yet, if we look at Tiger's career graph, we can easily say that not going to college, and not completing his studies hasn't made him any less successful in the line of work, he chose for himself. Why? Because he had other skills, and a passion for his craft to make up for the lack of higher education on his resume. Just like Tiger Shroff, these following 5 actors also never attended college. Read about them here: 1. Aamir Khan (c) Twitter Aamir Khan was only 16-years-old when he acted in a silent film titled 'Paranoia'. His performance fetched him so much appreciation that he decided to ditch the idea of studying further and got into theatre instead. There was no looking back post that, and soon he became a full-time actor. 2. Alia Bhatt (c) Twitter Alia had just graduated from Jamnabai Narsee School in Mumbai, when she had to start shooting for her debut film with Karan Johar in 2012. Alia has often expressed that she was never into academics and enjoyed extra-curricular more than studying. We suppose acting was her best bet after all. Look at all the performances she 'dhoptoed' the audience with recently! 3. Salman Khan (c) Twitter Bollywood's big brother went to school at St Stanislaus High School in Bandra, Mumbai. It is reported that he got himself enrolled in St Xavier's College but never attended because he wished to kick start his film career. Clearly, that was the best decision he made. Right? 4. Deepika Padukone (c) Twitter Deepika went to Sophia High School in Bangalore but could not complete her education because of the constant demands of her modelling career. She did get herself enrolled for a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from IGNOU, but quit eventually to focus on her modelling career full-time. 5. Arjun Kapoor (c) Twitter Arjun Kapoor's tryst with education hasn't been a very memorable one. Arjun attended Arya Vidya Mandir school in Mumbai, where he studied till 12th grade. However, he failed to clear his class 12th exams, and he quit his studies altogether. These Bollywood A-listers with just their school education to back them, besides truck-loads of talent, prove that success does not restrict itself to people with good degrees on their resumes. It'll come to those who follow their passion, work hard to live their dreams and know how to utilise their skills and talents to make a name for themselves and live life king size.
  13. Salman Khan is gearing up for the Eid release of his much-awaited, blockbuster in the making, 'Bharat' and is currently busy shooting for his 'Dabangg 3'. However with everyone experimenting with the web-series genre, one wonders if 'Bhai' would ever consider this medium as his preferred choice of making content. Unlike Saif Ali Khan, who is doing a fantastic job with 'Sacred Games', Salman holds a very different perspective towards making and acting in a web series. In one of his recent interviews, he shared his views on why he doesn't want to work in one. “I don't like it. I mean, it's a damn good space but I don't like all that is being shown on the digital platforms.” Talking about censorship being a problem with the digital medium, he added, “In films, if there are three-four extra punches, it gets censored and we get an A certificate. We get a U/A certificate only when we cut some scenes but on the web, they show anything and everything. There is no censorship. There should be an appointed body that takes that call. My problem is that young kids are also watching it because everyone has access to a phone. So, that's not cool with me.” Salman is very happy with his choice of films and wants it to remain that way. Even though it's his personal choice, we kind of feel his reasoning is a bit absurd, as with the world switching to a 'Netflix and chill' mode, many major superstars are foraying into this world. But then again, he is 'Bhai' and can still pull a sizeable number of fans to the theatres, we guess.
  14. Yes I am a straight female, but you can't blame me for being blown away everytime by the superior, fierce beauty of the one and only Khaleesi. Man! Daenerys Targaryen has a similar effect on both men and women, and I totally get it. However, she is a fictional character, and we all know how the wonderful Emilia Clarke does a brilliant job of portraying the iconic character of the Mother of Dragons. But, what if I were to tell you that Khaleesi exists in real life too? Oh yes, she is most certainly real, my friends. View this post on Instagram Bend the knee e scusate se vi sto bombardando.

Well, it all began with a dude who was possibly trying to hit on her with a cheesy pick-up line. “I've always been a passionate fan of movies and TV series and I've always dreamed about becoming one of the protagonists of my favourite movies. I discovered this world in 2016 when a boy who followed me on Facebook told me that I'd make a perfect Daenerys. The problem was I'd not even started to watch Game of Thrones,” Rory told LADbible. Well, I'll be damned! The resemblance is so eerie and uncanny that I had to go back and look at Emilia and then Rory to spot the difference.

However, things can get pretty weird sometimes for Rory. “I have received a few strange requests though. Just a few days ago a man asked me if he could have my face put onto a t-shirt. Also, recently I was on the way back from Torino Comics [a local convention] and a boy asked me for a picture in the subway elevator. I'd used the subway to get there and really enjoyed seeing everyone's reactions to the 'mother of dragons' just sitting on the underground," Rory said. Well, Rory, prepare yourself to have a tidal wave of followers from India now.
  15. We're only half way through April and already sweating like a pig in the scorching heat, but for some people 'winter is here'. A winter that includes lots of dragons, swords, *** and brutal deaths. © HBO Just like most people, I too was waiting for 'Game of Thrones' final season to air. Not because I am a die-hard fan or something, but to laugh at memes and jokes that will probably make no sense to me, and yet are damn funny. Also, because I am done with the barrage of tweets and posts on my timeline, talking about the Starks, Lannisters, Jon Snow, betrayals, reunions, and the White Walkers. © HBO Yesterday, when I walked into my office, everyone was busy discussing the first episode of season 8. My friends stared at me in disgust that how can someone not watch GOT. I could hear the bells ringing and people shouting 'Shame' in the background. But, at least I had a good sleep since I didn't wake up at 6:30 AM to watch the episode. Plus, I can check social media to my heart's content, without worrying about spoilers and send spoilers to people I hate. Sadly, the GOT fandom couldn't infect me at all. How I'll sleep tonight knowing I've never seen an episode of Game of Thrones pic.twitter.com/tQXpXnnwrj — Ryan Schocket (@RyanSchocket) April 15, 2019 Honestly, I have never really understood the hype around the show. I won't lie, at one point I did give in to the cultural pressure of missing out on something more important than 'global issues'. I tried watching an episode (actually I was forced by my colleagues who probably run a GOT fan club), but I just couldn't sit through it. Not even for Priyanka Chopra's 'devrani ji'. © HBO But, what I did understand was that I am not the only one who has never watched 'Game of Thrones'. There are people like me who have never seen the show and probably never will, and neither do they care about who sits on the throne. AND looks like the society HAS accepted people like us. by not watching game of thrones did i miss out on a big cultural moment? probably - but none of you guys listen to enough jazz so whatever — Natalie Weiner (@natalieweiner) April 14, 2019 Ever since HBO confirmed the final season, internet is divided between those who watch it, and those who troll people for not watching it. If you haven't already noticed, tired of the GOT spoilers and hashtags, people started posting 'I don't watch Game of Thrones'. you guys really fucking love game of thrones. which is great. it is great to love things.

  16. Have you ever ripped out a USB device recklessly without 'safely removing' it from your computer, and got poked by a tech expert? Well, you no longer need to worry about that. Microsoft has finally accepted that nobody was doing it anyway, and is doing away with 'safely eject' option once and for all. That's right, Microsoft no longer cares what you do. On a serious note, though, Microsoft has changed the system's default setting for USB and Thunderbolt-enabled external devices with the new Windows 10 update. The OS now comes with “Quick Removal” settings by default, which means you can now remove your USB devices without upsetting the fellow tech expert sitting next to you. © Reuters The change was actually made back in October last year, but it's only now that the company is officially alerting the professionals. It is, however, worth pointing out that the 'safely remove' icon is still present after the update, but you can simply ignore it, and yank the USB device out anytime, assuming you are not in the middle of actively copying files to or from it. According to Microsoft, pulling out the USB device without 'safely removing' it may still degrade system performance. Let's be honest though, we all have been ripping out our flash drives without using that option for years now, and our system have been just fine. But hey, it's nice to know that Microsoft doesn't really cares anymore.
  17. If you've ever found yourself in a situation where no matter how hard you try, your pictures end up looking greasy and oily, here's how you can fix it. Being excessively oily or greasy in the Summer heat is super normal however: 1. Have You Heard About A Mattifying Moisturizer? © Getty Images Moisturizers can sometimes make you sweat like if the product is dense, heavy, and oily, it's going to make the greasy situation worse. Instead, a lightweight, fast-absorbing moisturizer allows the pores to breathe easily. 2. Or Switch To A Face Oil Instead Of A Moisturizer © Getty Images A face oil might absorb the skin residue lightly and quickly and your skin in turn produces less oil because it registers the oily levels of the skin as sufficient. Essential oils like squalene, rose hip oil and sea buckthorn oil help moisturize the face. 3. Get Acquainted With A Toner © Getty Images Skin toners have ingredients like witch hazel that attempt to reduce oil production in the skin without drying it out (avoid alcohol-based astringents). 4. Keep A Few Face Wipes Handy © Getty Images Oil builds up throughout the day but if you're in a situation where you're in no position to wash your face, it's always helpful to stock up on refreshing, skin-toning face wipes that absorb excess grime and oil, while invigorating the face at the same time. 5. Do A Weekly Mud Mask © Getty Images The clay or mud in any mask will soak all impurities and gunk from the pores, preventing breakouts and reducing shine. Blue Lagoon's Silica Mud Mask takes ingredients from the famed geothermal waters of Iceland to shrink pores, absorb grease, and give you a reset. Don't do it more than once a week, though, because your skin can in turn dry out. You need some oil in there to keep yourself hydrated. A weekly deep clean will do you go, so long as you follow with a cleanser and moisturizer.
  18. Summer is almost here, and it is bringing with it a hoard of issues that we absolutely hate. Now, issues such as sweat are easily treatable, because they are right there, in your face - but what you need to be really careful about are issues that are not so apparent. For example, sun damage. We Indian men are not exactly careful in general about matters related to male beauty, but we should be when it comes to sun damage, because it's more to do with health. © Getty Images Sun damage can bring forth a lot of issues that don't end at simple tanning. But it can be controlled easily, if one remembers to apply sunscreen before stepping out, every time. The trouble is, most of us ignore it. Here are 5 solid reasons why you should never step out without applying sunscreen, especially in Summer. © Getty Images 1. Sunscreen can work wonders while keeping skin cancer at bay. Dermatologist Dr Ronald M. Shelton (MD) says, "Sunscreen application is important any day you'll be outside. Men and women should use sunscreen to help reduce the numbers of skin cancers that you might develop later in life. Most skin cancers develop 4 or more decades after the injury, but the additional function of sunscreen, for which it is important for you to use it even if you're 60+, is that it helps prevent the sunshine's damage to the skin's immune cells that help reverse the DNA damage of the sun from years ago. Therefore, the use of sunscreen today can lessen skin cancer that has been trying to form since youth." © Getty Images 2. According to most dermatologists, 60-90% effects of aging start showing on skin because of sun. Elastin and Collagen are the base behind youthful skin, and both are damaged because of sun exposure. Using a sunscreen regularly can help you protect them, in turn keeping your skin young. © Getty Images 3. Sunscreen can prevent hyper-pigmentation and acne. When the skin is exposed to sun rays for a long time, hyper-pigmentation takes place, and leaves your skin super tanned, and sometimes red and burnt. Also, UV rays help bacteria grow on skin, resulting in acne breakouts. Applying sunscreen before going out can minimize both, to a great extent. © Getty Images So homies, please do your skin a favour, and always remember to do the needful before you step out.
  19. Going to parties becomes a constant after a certain age in every guy's life. And especially after you start working, drowning away the sorrows of work life with alcohol becomes a necessity more than a leisure activity. © Getty Images However, for those of us who still live with our families, walking home smelling like ten bottles of alcohol (even when you haven't had ten bottles of alcohol) can be incredibly embarrassing. And yet, sometimes you might've noticed that no matter what food you have after or the number of hours that have passed since the alcohol consumption, your mum will still find out that you have an alcohol breath. So here are a couple of hacks that you can take cue from so that the next time you smell like flowers and not the stingy alcohol that might get you in trouble. Let's start with the basics: 1. Never Forget Your Munchies © Getty Images Make sure you're eating before or after having alcohol or while having it. Food helps balance out retention in your body and prevents puking if done correctly. The last thing you want is going home stinking of alcohol and puking. That'll get you grounded in no time. 2. Hydration Is Key © Getty Images Alcohol dehydrates your body. You need a hydrating agent to bring back the lost water. This not only helps with hangovers for the next day but also lessens the chances of the alcohol breath. 3. Carry Handy Mouthwash And Mints © Getty Images If the party-life chose you, in return you've to choose to carry a handy mouthwash and mints. Ten minutes before reaching home, use these so that your breath doesn't smell off at all. This is a prime fighter in driving away the stench that can get you in trouble. 4. Never Mix If You Have To Go Home Right After © Getty Images If you're not sleeping over at someone's place at night, definitely, do not mix your drinks. Different drinks have different odours. If you mix alcohol, for example, whiskey with rum or beer with whiskey, it can make the overall odour worse, you'll definitely get caught. Stick to one type of alcohol you like for the night as this can lessen alcohol breath. 5. Try Onion And Garlic Based Food © Getty Images Foods which are aromatic can help overpower alcohol breath. Red onion and garlic both cling to your breath for a long time, reducing the smell of alcohol. You can order bar foods that contain onion or garlic. Garlic-infused items, such as garlic fries or garlic bread, are often popular bar items.
  20. Seems like the iconic character of Tyrion Lannister who drinks and knows things way too well has more than just one 'desi' doppelganger. After Imtiaz Ali and his team spotted Peter Dinklage's doppelganger in Kashmir, another man in Pakistan is now reaping the benefit of sharing the facial features of the GOT star. His name is Rozi Khan and he is a waiter who is now busy starring in selfies. © AFP Ironically, Rozi Khan had never heard of Peter or GOT before people made him aware of his new-found celebrity status. He was leading the common, simple life, serving tables when everyone now wanted to click pictures with him and make him an overnight social media star in Pakistan. In an interview with AFP, Rozi said, “I don't mind. A lot of my pictures have been taken, that's why I have become very famous everywhere. Wherever I go, someone says to me: 'Sir, who is this man with you on Facebook', I say that he is my friend. 'He looks like you'. I tell them he is my brother. It's not a bad thing”. © AFP Needless to say, his presence has also boosted the business of the restaurant he works at, benefitting his employers equally. With a doppelganger in both sides of the border, looks like someone needs to get Peter down here! Until then, we'll soon be able to witness his action on 'Game Of Thrones' because the countdown to finale has already begun.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
