  1. We wreak havoc when our pizza is not delivered within 30 minutes. We make a gazillion calls to the delivery guy, just to check where he is when we get a message that "your food is arriving in 20 minutes." In short, we take our food delivery orders very seriously, more than anything else in life. Well, looks like so does Swiggy. Even if it means delivering food from Rajasthan to a man sitting in Bengaluru, in just 12 minutes. via GIPHY The legendary proof of the same was shared by Bhargav Rajan on Twitter. Bhargav ordered from a restaurant in Bengaluru, but Swiggy detected it as an order coming from a restaurant in Rajasthan. So what's next? In case you think the order was cancelled, you're wrong. The order was not only accepted, but it even showed that the food will be delivered in 12 minutes. Wow @swiggy_in what are you driving? pic.twitter.com/0MlL1cxbZ2 — Bhargav Rajan (@bhargavrajan) February 17, 2019 Seriously! What is the delivery guy driving to cover this ridiculous distance in 12 minutes? Bhargav shared the hilarious incident with the caption "Wow Swiggy, what are you driving?" What's more, the delivery guy was travelling from one state to another to deliver the food was for Rs. 138. People were left in splits after looking at the picture and started trolling Swiggy for their delivery service that is probably faster than Usain Bolt.

  3. Growing up in Colorado, Missy Franklin was introduced to swimming on her mother's insistence, owing to water safety. At the age of seven, she joined the Colorado Stars travel swim team and by 12, the American was competing against girls much older than her. By the time, Franklin graduated from high school, she possessed half the Colorado High School Athletics Association's time records for high school swim. Realising her potential, Franklin's parents got her under the wing of professional swimming coaches and the young girl thrived. In 2011, she set the first world record of her career in the 200-metre backstroke category, bettering Japanese swimmer Shiho Sakai's previous best. But, her biggest test came in 2012 as she underwent the London Olympic trials. Acing the trials and becoming the first female to qualify for seven Olympic events, Franklin, at the age of just 17, lived up to her reputation by winning five medals - four golds and a bronze - at the 2012 Summer Olympics. She also became the first woman to win four golds in a single Olympics in any sport. © Reuters In her next Olympics in Rio, the American swimmer, sadly, couldn't repeat her heroics (at least not in the number of medals) as she could only win a gold medal in the 4x200m freestyle relay. But, despite that, Franklin was being looked upon as the next Michael Phelps for her capabilities in the swimming pool. But, it wasn't meant to be. At the age of 23, while people are generally beginning their careers, Franklin was forced to call time on hers. Destined for greatness, the young swimmer broke many hearts after she announced her retirement from the sport last December, owing to chronic shoulder pain. For someone who won almost everything at will at the biggest sporting spectacle in the world, Franklin's dreams of becoming the best came crashing down. While the turn of events can undoubtedly demoralise anyone, it couldn't affect Franklin's resolve. Retired at such a young age, Franklin took another shot at life through 'Hinduism'. © Reuters “I have been studying religion for a year now and it is so fascinating and eye-opening. I love learning different cultures, people and their faith,” Franklin told PTI on the sidelines of the 'Laureus World Sports Awards.' “My own religion is Christianity but two classes I have found so intriguing are Hinduism and Islam. Because those are the two religions I did not know a lot about and after reading and learning about them, I think they are beautiful,” the bubbly American said. Apart from her heroics in swimming, Franklin also comes across as a bright student who knows quite a lot about 'Hinduism'. She is fascinated by the Ramayana and Mahabharata and has also made a conscious effort to learn the unfamiliar names in the two epics. © Reuters “I think the most beautiful aspect of Hinduism is the idea of Karma and of being good to one another, doing good deeds and how that all comes back to you, how the universe works. I find their myths and tales incredible, it is also fascinating to know about their gods, reading the Mahabharata and Ramayana has been such an amazing experience for me. The family names in Mahabharata would always confuse me but I remember learning about Ram and Sita in the Ramayana. How Sita lived her life, how loyal she stayed to Rama,” she said. Smitten by her ever-growing love for 'Hinduism', Franklin is keen on visiting India - a country that has the largest Hindu population in the world. On the other hand, her stint at the University of Georgia also educated her about the history of Yoga. “Learning about the true roots of yoga and its process, how actual Yogis live their life of renunciation, it is so incredible. I have been doing Yoga recreationally for three years but after learning more about it through Hinduism, it has definitely become a more spiritual experience for me,” she revealed. “In the West, I think the spiritualism of Yoga was left out and that is a huge generalisation. But it is great learning about what Yoga is all about and how it is about that connection with the divine and creating that oneness,” she added. © Reuters At a tender age, Franklin attained stardom and then saw it all go out of the window. Her injury spelt doom for what would have surely been a fantastic swimming career. But, unlike the majority of individuals her age, the American didn't let the weaknesses bring her down. Instead, she assessed her options and focussed on things that brought her happiness and peace. Owing to her unfavourable experiences and tough choices in life so far, this youngster is a befitting example and role model for all those who seek inspiration in the darkest phases of life.
  4. If there is something sweeter than scoring an extra time winner, it has to be reunions and rivalries. The better part of rivalries turns into controversies whereas reunions are celebrated and cherished. Since exceptions are always there, Luis Figo's hostile welcome at Camp Nou and the boos Angel Di Maria received at Old Trafford, are some of the few examples of the fact that reunions are not always a bed of roses. If you're still not over the 'Pogbrilliance' from last night, here are some thrilling reunions and rivalries to look forward to this week. 1. Tuesday - Liverpool vs Bayern Munich © Bavarian Football Works It cannot get bigger and better than this. Two European giants with 10 Champions League titles between them. Liverpool vs Bayern Munich at Anfield promises to be one of the games of the season. This match will see the reunion between a master and two of his apprentices - Jurgen Klopp and Mats Hummels and Robert Lewandowski. The German coach was responsible for bringing Lewandowski to Bundesliga and Mats Hummels to Borussia Dortmund. After the initial struggle, Klopp turned the Polish hitman into a phenom. He has now scored 193 Bundesliga goals and is just 2 behind the former Bayern Player Claudio Pizarro in terms of 'Most Goals Scored By A Non-German Player.' The former Mainz manager also transformed Hummels into one of the best defenders in the world, forcing Bayern Munich to buy him back from Dortmund. Lewandowski has come back to hurt Klopp on many occasions during latter's time at Die Borussen. It'll be amazing to see Klopp deal with the monsters he created. This match will also see Bayern come face to face with one of their treble winners in Xherdan Shaqiri, who has had an impressive start to the career at Anfield. 2. Wednesday - Atletico Madrid vs Juventus © therahnuma Atletico Madrid versus Juventus will see Cristiano Ronaldo meet his old foes. Currently the second best player in the world, Cristiano will meet Atletico for the first time since his move to Turin. It'll definitely prove to be a 'Clash Of The Titans' when the likes of Ronaldo, Dybala and Douglas Costa will take on Griezmann, Diego Costa and Thomas Lemar. For four years in a row, Ronaldo's Real Madrid ended Atletico's dreams of winning a UEFA Champions League title. Twice, those defeats came in the final of the competition in heartbreaking fashion. Just thinking about the reception he'll receive at Wanda Metropolitano sends chills down our spine. This match will also see Mario Mandzukic come up against his former employers. The Croatian who spent a season in the Spanish capital left after falling out with coach Diego Simeone. In other fixture, Manchester City will see golden boy, Leroy Sane, come up against his boyhood club, FC Schalke 04. Making it a night charged with emotions. 3. Thursday - Arsenal vs BATE Borisov © BBC Thursday will see Arsenal face BATE Borisov in the second leg of UEFA Europa League. To everybody's surprise, the Belarusian club came out on top in the first leg and will have a lead to defend during travel to North-London. What makes this match special is the return of former Arsenal player Alexander Hleb. His name might be the one that comes to mind when you think of the 2006 North-London outfit which came so close to winning the first Champions League trophy in club's history. But it was in Arsenal where the Belarusian played the best football of his career that eventually earned him a £12 million move to Pep Guardiola's Barcelona in the summer of 2008. It'll mark the return of a cult hero. 4. Saturday - Sevilla vs Barcelona © Inquirer In the race to La Liga title, Barcelona will face Sevilla in a tricky away fixture. Tricky because the last time Barca played Sevilla at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium, the home side ran out 2-0 winners in Copa Del Rey, only to be hammered away 6-1 by the Catalan club a week later. Though Barca leads Sevilla by 17 points in the points table, any slip-ups here will allow direct rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid to cut short the lead and pile the pressure on Barcelona. 5. Sunday - Manchester United vs Liverpool © BBC Super Sunday! The final day of this exhausting week full of football will see four of the top six Premier League sides in action. Firstly, it'll be the North-West Derby. With Liverpool coming to Old Trafford and aiming to go on top of the Premier League table, Manchester United will do whatever they can in order to not let that happen. This derby can prove to be the biggest of them all in recent years, with United having a say in Liverpool's title bid. Any result of helping the neighbours Manchester City will be favoured by United faithful in order to disrupt Scousers' title dream. 6. Sunday - Manchester City vs Chelsea © Ronaldo Secondly, after 6-0 drubbing last week, Chelsea will face Manchester City in the English League Cup final at Wembley. After a dismal run of form, Chelsea has slipped to fifth in the Premier League Table. A win here will prove to be a morale booster for London club in an otherwise shambolic season. Manchester City is definite favourites for the final and this could prove to be the first step towards the unprecedented quadruple. Other Fixtures: . Lyon vs Barcelona . Chelsea vs Malmo
  5. Condoms while the most popular and justifiably reliable contraceptive method doesn't work for everyone. From latex allergies to excessive friction to just the curiosity of exploring a new method of contraception are all justified reasons to look for alternatives. Here is a curated list of possible alternatives that you could explore with your partner. 1. Combined Oral Contraceptive © Getty Images The pills primarily made for women are a combination of two hormones: estrogen and progesterone. These are taken for three weeks out of every four either as a daily tablet or less frequently in the form of a patch every week or vaginal ring every three weeks. This method is over 99% effective (less than 1 woman out of every 100 will get pregnant each year when using it correctly). It works by preventing the release of an egg, thickening the cervical mucus to stop sperm getting through and thinning the lining of the womb to prevent an egg implanting and growing. However, it's important to note that there is a very small risk of developing a blood clot (deep vein thrombosis), having a stroke or a heart attack, getting breast or cervical cancer while on the pill. For most women, the risks are far outweighed by the benefits of being on the pill but it is strongly advised to get on the pill after consulting a gynaecologist 2. Progesterone Only Pill (The Mini-Pill) © Getty Images Again for women, the pill contains only one hormone, progesterone (no oestrogen), and is taken every day without break and has to be taken within same 3-hour window each day without a break. Women may experience their periods to be irregular and unpredictable or they may even stop entirely. The pill is 99% effective, if used correctly however, even with lesser health risks there are chances of developing ovarian cysts. 3. Caps/ Diaphragms © Getty Images A flexible latex/ silicone device used with a spermicide gel to cover the cervix and prevent sperm from entering. One of the advantages include that It's a chemical-free alternative to hormone-based contraceptive methods, so there are no side effects or health risks at all. However, It can be messy and needs to be left in place for at least six hours for it to be 92 - 96% effective. 4. Fertility Awareness Apps And Devices © Getty Images Fertility awareness apps are based on modern algorithms and your smartphone to predict the woman's vaginal temperature, period and ovulation to work out when she's fertile but it's like one of the earliest forms of birth control - fertility awareness and 'natural' planning. It's a tiny window of a few days, but if you get the estimates wrong it can result in pregnancy. However, if used entirely correctly, the app can be as effective as the pill. However, it's advisable to combine it with protection to be on the safer side. 5. Female Condoms © Getty Images If you can get the instructions right, and use this preventive well, it can have 79-95% effectiveness. It's a pretty unpopular method because of less demand which is mostly because people don't know about them. However, there is no reason why it wouldn't work just as effectively. ' 6. Depo Shots © Getty Images A dose of progesterone given by injection to women every 12 weeks. A great contraceptive, however, the side effects include weight gain for women and also it takes about a year to be fertile again for the woman after ceasing to continue this method. It is extremely effective and less than four women per thousand will become pregnant every two years when using this method. However, It's not ideal for long term use as can have a thinning effect on the bones. 7. Nexplanon Implant © Getty Images This contraceptive is a matchstick-sized flexible rod placed under the skin of a woman's arm which releases progesterone. This works for 3 years straight by preventing ovulation, thickening cervical mucus and thinning the womb lining. Periods may stop altogether for women or may become less frequent and lighter. Sometimes the pill is given (if suitable) in the first few months in addition to the implant to settle down bleeding. Common side effects may include headaches, mood swings, spots and breast tenderness but often improve after the first few months. However, with minimal side-effects, this is the most effective method available for women with less than 1 per thousand will become pregnant in a 3 year period and the best part is that the changes are reversible immediately on removal of the implant. 8. Copper IUD / Coil © Getty Images This is a small plastic T-shaped copper device which is placed inside the womb. Copper has properties that kill the sperm hence preventing fertilisation and implantation of eggs. This has no effect on ovulation so should not change the natural hormonal cycle. It's popular with women who need effective contraceptive, but do not want or cannot have hormones. However, it will usually make mensuration bleeding heavier, more painful and often prolonged. It is over 99% effective if placed properly and can also last for up to 10 years depending on the exact device used. 9. Mirena IUS © Getty Images Again, a small plastic T-shaped device which is placed inside the womb and releases progesterone over a period of 5 years. Although this contains a hormone, It has a suppressive effect on the womb lining and thereby reduces or even stops periods, making it a good choice for those with heavy painful periods and is actually used for that reason even in women who do not need contraception. Over 99% effective and fertility returns immediately on removal of the IUS. 10. Jaydess © Getty Images A relatively new contraceptive, the smaller 'hormone coil' contains only about a quarter of the hormone dose of the Mirena and lasts for 3 years. It is even easier to fit into smaller wombs and may be more suitable for younger women who have not had children or for those who want an even lesser amount of hormone in their bodies. 9/10 women will continue to have their periods with this method although they are likely to be lighter and again, there may be initial spotting or irregular bleeding. It is more than 99% effective. 11. Sponges © Getty Images The sponge comes with added spermicide that helps prevent pregnancy. They're a single use option, and cannot be worn for more than 30 hours at a time just like a condom however obviously they last for longer. The spermicide slows down the sperm and stops them from heading towards the egg, and the sponge itself covers your cervix, to block them if they do get there. They are easy to use: you just have to wet the sponge to activate the spermicide, and then the woman can insert it, as far up as you find comfortable. These also need to be left in your vagina for at least six hours after having ***, so you have to remember to include this in your 30-hour calculation. However, there's no STI protection, and it can't be used while the woman is on her period. 12. The Patch © Getty Images With effectiveness over 91-99%, the patch is very similar to an implant, it works effectively because it can be stuck on the arm of the woman and forgotten about. It contains small amounts of hormones that get into the system. But if it falls off, its effectiveness is reduced. 13. Male Sterilisation Or Vasectomy © Getty Images Vasectomy is a surgical procedure for male sterilization and permanent contraception. During this procedure, the male vas deferens are cut and tied or sealed so as to prevent sperm from entering into the urethra and thereby prevent fertilization of a female through sexual intercourse. it can be considered a permanent procedure. PSA: It is important to keep in mind that unlike condoms a lot of these won't save you from sexually transmitted diseases.
  6. During his early days, Shikhar Dhawan was busy plying his trade for Delhi in the Ranji Trophy. The left-hander was busy honing his skills as a batsman and soon became a vital cog for his side in domestic cricket. While his batting prowess was gaining recognition, Dhawan's uncanny nature, clubbed with wit and humour, also entertained everyone around him. As his fellow players often recall, Dhawan was infamous for reciting the dialogues of Bollywood blockbuster 'Sholay' during the domestic matches which further saw him earning the nickname 'Gabbar'. For a man whose typical 'Kabaddi' celebrations are cheered by fans, Dhawan gave his followers another gem to cheer for on the social media.

"Jatt Shaunkiyaa tey Shaunk poore karda. #horsebackriding #horseriding #learninghorseriding #tuesdaythoughts #TuesdayMotivation," he captioned the video. While Indian spinner Ravindra Jadeja reigns supreme when it comes to his love for horses, Dhawan's latest horse-riding video has also struck a chord with the fans.

  7. Any man knows that the mark of a true gentleman lies in his ability to suit up. Trust us, nothing looks classier than a man in a well-tailored suit. With the up and coming trends of styling suits in numerous ways and mixing it up with athleisure and business casual attire, there still remain a few things that should be left the way they are when it comes to men's fashion. Tailoring is the most adaptable piece of clothing a man can own. To get more wear out of your true business attire, the easiest and most effective move would be to lose the tie. Here are 5 ways to wear a suit without a tie and still look dapper: 1. Go for a collarless shirt © Instagram/ishabhansali Opting for a shirt that prevents you to wear a tie in the first place is possibly the best solution to your problems. Also known as the stand collar shirt, a collarless shirt adds finesse and provides a clean look without the choke of the necktie. A simple white or light blue shirt would be ideal for an update your tailored suit needs. 2. Trade the shirt for a polo © Instagram/ishabhansali To dial the tone on formality, opt for a polo tee instead of a shirt. This style retains the collar effect to make you look put together but oozes chill vibes as well making the look semi-casual. Keeping the footwear casual and accessories as minimal as possible is suggested. You can either button the polo tee up or rock an open collar depending upon the occasion. 3. Go for the classic open collar © Instagram/ishabhansali Slogging all day at the office can make your necktie feel like a noose. The best way to let it go is to open the collar for good. A simple move can make ample difference when it comes to the look and feel of the outfit. Just open the top button of your shirt and let loose. One can go from business meeting to cocktail party ready in the matter of seconds. 4. Camp collar all the way © Instagram/ishabhansali If you're a fan of the 70s fashion and want to embrace your inner OG Don, go for a camp collar. Also known as the Cuban collar, pair this shirt with earthy tones of brown, khaki and beige. This style will give you a relaxed appearance but still make you look refined. A beige suit is ideal to pair a printed shirt with. 5. A fast track button up © Instagram/ishabhansali The quickest way to look polished sans tie is to don a dress shirt in a classic button-up manner. To carry a buttoned up shirt without looking like a school kid, go for slim fit tailoring for a sharp look. For the perfect business casual style, opt for printed shirts with a neutral colored suit and loafers or derby shoes. Adapt these styling tips and they're sure to make you ditch the dreaded tie once every while and still look as debonair.
  8. With the iPhone X, Apple completely ditched the home button in favour of gestures. The gesture navigation system was soon rolled out by multiple Android OEMs, even though Android doesn't natively support it. Currently, Android OS relies on three core navigation buttons: back button, home button and a recents tab. Google combined the home and recents buttons in Android 9 but kept the back button untouched. Though, this could change in the upcoming Android Q update. © YouTube According to a report by XDA Developers, Google is now planning to completely ditch the conventional Back button to opt for a gesture-based navigation system. And this is a good thing for all of us. Gestures are for sure the future of smartphone navigation, and with core support, the user experience will be drastically better. Google last year launched Android Pie with a new one-touch button and lots of gesture features. Though, the update let users switch back to the older method of navigation. © YouTube Even though a lot of Android phones have gesture navigation available as an option, it works due to the external skin or UI that the OEM has made. This isn't always as smooth and intuitive as native support. In comparison, Apple's navigation is extremely fluid due to deeper software integration. Swiping left on the screen will enable users to go back and swiping right will take users from their current app to the previous app in a card-like transition. Swifter animations are another major revamp that Google could bring with the update. © Google Google shall be announcing the next major update to Android at Google I/O developer conference, that is scheduled for 7 May. Google is also expected to launch a redesigned app info screen with “Material Theme”. There are also rumours that Google could finally bring a system-wide dark mode and even more detailed privacy controls. Google intends to make it easier for users to understand and determine the permissions they are giving to an app. Please keep in mind, these reports are based on early builds of Android Q, an official feature announcements is pending.
  9. In the world of men's fashion, one thing is for certain - you can never own enough t shirts. Whether you wear them to beat the scorching summer heat, or as an integral element of your comfy and warm layered up winter outfit, the utility of a nice t shirt cannot be stressed enough. What's more? Given the variety of t shirt styles out there, you can always switch them up according to your wants and needs. In other words, just when you think you have enough for every occasion, you realise that your summer (or winter) wardrobe still has room for one more t shirt. However, amongst all the various styles, hues, and fits available, there's one thing that should remain constant - a comfortable fabric.

  10. The Indian Railways as well as Minister Piyush Goyal decided to get a bit sassy with all defaulters and people who dupe for tickets with a clever hack. They launched their own 'Gully Boy' rap to warn everyone that 'tera time aayega' and it's hilarious. Tera Time Aayega pic.twitter.com/3JI8SoPx3u — Piyush Goyal (@PiyushGoyal) February 18, 2019 The funny video is a reminder to buy train tickets and not fool around with the TC while you are on a journey. While we loved this 'shaana' take on the original song sung from Zoya Akhtar's 'Gully Boy', people on social media decided to make a few points to retaliate to this rap. Train Time Pe Aayega? — Rizzzzzz (@ShaikhNabi1) February 18, 2019 Train time se jayega , beech main to nahi ruk jayega — Rahul (@dildar12) February 18, 2019 While some innocently questioned train timings, some shared their own woes. Window seat pe baithne ka time aata hai tab tak mera stop aajata hai ð­ð­ — Godman Chikna (@Madan_Chikna) February 18, 2019 Hope this becomes "Tu bina ticket aaya hai toh fine bharke jaayega" Kyunki pakda jaane ke baad kya hota hai hum sabko pata hai. — SAGAR (@sagarcasm) February 19, 2019 All jokes aside, one should obviously not flout rules and act too 'shaana'! So please buy your own ticket, guys.
  11. Has it ever happened to you, that you got back home with your date after a romantic dinner, and as soon as you took off your shoes, your date fainted? Well we hope not (and that was a hyperbole), but trust us, nothing will kill your *** life and your social life in general faster than smelly feet. It's super unpleasant, and more importantly, extremely embarrassing. © Getty Images No one wants to experience that damp, musty odour coming from your socks. Most men don't know how to get rid of it, and whenever they seek help, there's usually a long list of things that are presented to them that are effective but time-consuming. But worry not, for we are here, and we have a super easy solution that will take less than a minute every day. © Getty Images One needs to understand that the main reason behind feet odour is the sweat they produce, and bacteria and fungus trapped inside shoes and socks thrive in that moist, warm environment. If one can find a way to take away that moisture, odour can be significantly reduced. The best way? The good old, always handy, talcum powder. © Getty Images Every day after taking a shower, make sure to dry your feet properly - especially the spaces between the toes and your nail corners. Once that is done, put some talcum powder/baby powder on your feet and spread it all around with your hands. Then wear a pair of clean socks (you can also spray some powder inside the socks before putting them on). Use some anti-bacterial or anti-fungal powder for amazing results. © Getty Images And voila! You'll notice a difference instantly. Of course, apart from this, you definitely cannot underestimate the importance of maintaining feet hygiene and always washing them properly. Try not covering your feet up all the time and wear open toed footwear if you suffer from it all the time.
  12. Every 80s or 90s kid has seen at least one Star Wars movie if not the entire series, which although consists of a lot of chapters, is worth a session of binge-watching (other than 'Solo', do NOT watch 'Solo'). Other than the fact that the series introduced us to one of the most iconic bad guys in Darth Vader and the wisest philosopher and master period, in Yoda, the elaborate lightsaber duels between the good and the evil was a primary reason for the geeks and nerds to stay up all night in long lines just to buy the movie tickets to the George Lucas classics. The whole concept of energy swords used for melee combats or for deflecting blaster bolts has been timeless and is one of the ideal weapons to have during the time of an apocalypse (personal choice). © AP Anyhow, it appears as if the Frenchmen responsible for sports in the country are bigger Star War geeks than the rest of the world took them to be. A nation of sword-fighting and fencing fans, France has officially recognised lightsaber dueling as a real sport. Believe it or not, the French Fencing Federation took this decision to encourage the younger generation to participate in the game instead of staying glued to their mobile phones and video game consoles. © AP “With young people today, it's a real public health issue,” federation secretary general Serge Aubailly told AP. “They don't do any sport and only exercise with their thumbs. It's becoming difficult to (persuade them to) do a sport that has no connection with getting out of the sofa and playing with one's thumbs.” Here are the two basic rules of lightsaber dueling: Rule 1: Before each blow, the lightsaber's tip must be brought backwards. Rule 2: Fighters have the option of waving the whole lightsaber, from tip to hilt, behind them or to their sides. That's not all. The Jedi-Sith dueling inspired 'sport' can soon make an appearance at the Olympics in the coming years as well. © AP ”We wanted it to be safe, we wanted it to be umpired and, most of all, we wanted it to produce something visual that looks like the movies, because that is what people expect,” tournament organiser Michel Ortiz told AP in Paris. Get your passports ready guys. Time to move to France. May the Force be with you.
  13. Anyone who follows Jim Sarbh on social media, knows very well that this man has his very own, special brand of aesthetic that only he can carry off. His outfits are wonderfully weird, and strangely artistic. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but it sure does exude confidence, charm, and most importantly, originality. He just proved it once again by attending an award ceremony wearing a very special black suit, that we think is the best red carpet outfit we have seen this year. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Here is why we think that this outfit is special. 1. It takes skill to wear a suit without a tie or a bow-tie, and making it look equally fancy. Jim's black Mandarin collar shirt, buttoned all the way up, is doing that effortlessly. © Viral Bhayani 2. When was the last time you saw someone rock high-waisted pants on the red carpet, that too as a part of a suit? The high waist, along with the belt extension from the jacket, is making it look like a runway-ready piece. © Viral Bhayani 3. Usually, tapered pants are always preferred on a red carpet, because it makes you look sharper. But Jim isn't one to follow the beaten track, of course. He chose a super relaxed pair of pants with a magnificent fall, that makes him look like the fashion royalty. © Viral Bhayani 4. Look at the jacket. The collar lapel is one of the most unusual lapels we have ever seen, and there is a belt extension that goes around in layers, and then falls on the side, making it look like a tie-up belt. Surreal, we say. © Viral Bhayani This is what we call effortlessly innovative styling, while keeping it subtle yet classy.

  15. When you have so much money that you don't even know what to do with it, you start spending it on honestly the most bizarre, frivolous things. Case in point - Drake's new diamond encrusted iPhone case. Oh, and it apparently cost him $400,000 which is exactly â¹2,85,92,000. Basically, while we're all struggling to even afford an iPhone, he spent the money it would take to buy, say 400 iPhones, on a single phone case. I mean, it's his money and he can do whatever he wants with it, so Champagne Papi just decided to call everyone a broke bitch at the same time. Well, here's the cover, and please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks this is a little tacky. View this post on Instagram Because we can't do basic! Diamond iPhone case cover for our friend @champagnepapi ðð¼ðð¼ðð¼ A post shared by JASON OF BEVERLY HILLS (@jasonofbeverlyhills) on Feb 14, 2019 at 5:21am PST Not so basic, for sure. But, I still have some questions - What will happen when a new iPhone comes and it's time for Drake to upgrade? Will he stick to his current iPhone or drop another half a million dollars on a case? Is he being this extra just because he has a song called 'hotline bling' and this is literally hotline bling come to life? Does this case offer any extra protection when his phone inevitably falls? Will the diamonds prevent a broken screen? But, most importantly, I'm just scared of him losing his phone or someone stealing it. I mean, it would hurt us if we lost our iPhone, but he would not just lost his iPhone but 3 crore worth of diamonds as well. It hurts just thinking about it. Drake, be careful man, your phone is probably a target now.
  16. The Pulwama terror attack has left the entire nation in a state of horror and shock. Over 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives in the terrorist attack and a state of grave remorse and grief has struck everyone. © Twitter In the aftermath of the Pulwama attacks, a lot of Kashmiri students across the country have been under threat of verbal and physical violence and even though communal hatred is not something that is preached in a democracy, it is sad to know and witness that something like this can still fall upon us. As a result, many Kashmiri students are trying to run back home but it is not possible to be dislocated for something they are not even responsible for, right? In North India, Delhi and Dehradun have reported a big number of retaliation attacks on Kashmiri students. Khalsa Aid organisation has come forward to offer help to all distressed students and is even helping students go back home. In the midst of angst & hatred @Khalsa_Aid stands out for love & humanity This pic showing transportation of Kashmiri students by Khalsa Aid volunteers from Dehradun & Chandigarh @BDUTT @Nidhi @ReallySwara#Pulwama #PulwamaAttack #Kashmiri #KashmirTerrorAttack pic.twitter.com/YBihZ90Dh5 — Angad Singh (@Angad_Pb) February 19, 2019 We are all kashmiris thanks to @Khalsa_Aid proud on you #seikhcommunity help our students provide shelters foods..

  17. After witnessing a crazy bidding war at the auctions last December, the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is set to begin from 23rd March when defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) take on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in what promises to be a pulsating encounter. Fighting off the all-important general elections, the upcoming season has been divided into different phases to avoid a potential clash. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has released the dates for the first phase - from 23rd March to 5th April - of the tournament. ð¨ Announcement ð¨: The #VIVOIPL schedule for the first two weeks is out. The first match of the 2019 season will be played between @ChennaiIPL and @RCBTweets Details - https://t.co/wCi6dYHlXL pic.twitter.com/TaYdXNKVSx — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) February 19, 2019 The Indian cricket board has got clearance for 17 matches with the eight home venues of the respective franchises getting two matches each and Delhi getting to host three games in the first segment of the cash-rich T20 league. All teams will play a minimum of four matches with Delhi Capitals (DC) and RCB getting five games. Similarly, every team will play a minimum of two home and as many away games, barring DC who'll play three games at home and RCB who'll play three away matches. According to a HT report, a senior BCCI official revealed that the complete schedule of the twelfth edition cannot be released together keeping the upcoming general elections in mind. With the whole tournament set to be played in India, the BCCI is trying to ensure that the dates of elections don't coincide with the matches. “The full schedule will take some time as we need to wait for the general election dates to be released by the election commission. But for now, the dates of the first segment of the tournament is to be released. We all know the kind of arrangement that goes behind hosting elections and that is the priority,” the senior BCCI official told HT. © BCCL The IPL 2019 opener will pit two of the most popular and respected cricketers - Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni - against each other. While Dhoni-led CSK made a roaring comeback last season - winning the IPL 2018 title - following their two-year suspension in lieu to the spot-fixing case, Kohli's RCB had a forgettable outing last season. Both the teams will be eager to begin their campaign on a winning note, but we're pretty sure there'll be no shortage of excitement or entertainment as two of the biggest names in international cricket would be seen competing against each other. Clearly, the announcement of the schedule for the first phase of the tournament that had CSK taking on RCB in the opening match got the fans excited. Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Chennai Super Kings for the opener, all I can predict is if we win the first game and defeat Whistle Podu, we're all set to hold the cup this time. Srini Mama should help his fellow South Indian team this year. #EeSalaCupNamdhe — Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) February 19, 2019 And RCB will lose again 𶠗 Sana Rahman (@SanaRah40486684) February 19, 2019 Chennai super kings will win the cup — Vignesh (@Vignesh15951879) February 19, 2019 #starsportstamil I am big fan in Mr.Thala dhoni, And Chennai Super Kings, He is a world No 1 captain, Batsman, and wicket keeper so proud of him pic.twitter.com/NNsbjPHHTw — G.Veerasekar (@g_veerasekar) February 18, 2019 Spoiler: RCB is gonna lose pic.twitter.com/oZOClHlGqZ — Lesedi ð¿ð¦ (@Les_Ndlovu) February 19, 2019 Can't wait ð — Kinjal (Kartik Aryan) (@KinjalDamor) February 19, 2019
  18. If one were to make a list of all of the essential fashion staples that Indian men rely on, t-shirts are going to top that list. After all, not only are they super easy to pull off, they are also comfortable to wear, easy to maintain, and also end up providing you with multiple options to layer up your outfits with. Simply put, the utility of a t-shirt in a man's wardrobe simply cannot be stressed enough. But as important as t-shirts are for men, the latter usually aren't aware of all of the variants of the former they ought to be adding to their collection. Most of them are more than satisfied with a pair of solid colours, and while solid tees are important as well (more on that later!), they are not enough, nowhere close. And so to help Indian men upgrade their collection of such an integral fashion staple, here are all of the different types of t-shirts they ought to be investing in. 1. Solid T-Shirts © Amazon Right off the bat, the first type of t-shirts you need to be investing in are solid tees. After all, these are going to act as the staples you will constantly be depending on for your choice of attire. As such, no man's wardrobe can possibly be complete without the best black t shirts or the best white tees out there. But besides the monochromatic blacks and whites, you also need to be investing in other solid colours, including pastel shades (lavender, sky blue, and beige) and powerful hues (navy blue, bottle green, and red). Another major reason why your wardrobe should be stocked up with solid tees? You get multiple options to layer up your outfits and create arresting and fashion-forward ensembles that are certain to grab everyone's attention. 2. Printed T-Shirts © Amazon After you've stocked up your closet with a variety of solid tees, your next priority should be to opt for printed t-shirts. After all, a lot can be achieved by rocking the best printed t-shirts for men out there. Broadly speaking, there are two types of prints that you should ensure you invest in - minimalist and over-the-top. For minimalist prints, micro-ditsy, conversational, and even typography prints make for great choices, especially if you layer them up with a simple pair of trousers or joggers. For over-the-top prints, opting for bold graphic tees, and floral prints is advisable. Pro tip: Going for camouflage prints is always a good idea. 3. Polo T-Shirts © Amazon No man's wardrobe can possibly be complete without a collection of classy polo t-shirts. Considered to be one of the most effortlessly stylish fashion staples men could opt for, polo tees reinforce that golden rule of fashion - 'less is more'. The fact that they also help you look more mature doesn't hurt. In most cases, they also make for a great option for a first date. When looking for the best polo t-shirts for men, you should make sure you opt for reliable brands, go for solid colours (blacks, whites, blues, and reds), and get the right fit. 4. Supima Cotton T-Shirts © The March Tee Sometimes, how durable your t-shirt is going to be, how much comfort it will give, and whether it's going to last long are the primary factors you should be looking for in a t-shirt. Which is why investing in Supima cotton t-shirts ends up being such a great option. Not only will they make for the most comfortable t-shirts in your wardrobe (Supima cotton, after all, is up to FOUR TIMES softer than regular cotton), but they will also be more durable and resistant to wear and tear (Supima cotton is TWICE as strong as regular cotton) than your other tees. And despite being a tad bit more expensive than regular t-shirts, they actually end up providing you with more value for your money. Since they are more durable and long-lasting, investing in Supima cotton t-shirts helps you save money that you'd otherwise be spending on replacing your other regular t-shirts that are almost certain to get worn out in just a few months. 5. Full-Sleeve T-Shirts © Amazon Because t-shirts primarily tend to be a summer fashion staple, most men almost always associate them with short-sleeves. In reality, full-sleeve t-shirts can be just as effective and useful (if not more!) than their half-sleeved counterparts. In fact, full-sleeve t-shirts actually make for a more stylish and fashion-forward ensemble, especially if you team them up with the right clothes and accessories. You can also wear these tees during the warmer months of the year - October and November come to mind - when it's neither too hot, nor too cold. 6. High-Neck T-Shirts © Amazon Make no mistake, some of the best t-shirts for men out there are actually high-neck variants. Exuding class and high-fashion, there is no reason why you shouldn't be stocking up your closet with them. The trick here is to layer them up with the right clothes. In most cases, a high-neck t-shirt should NOT be layered with an additional jacket or pullover, as that ends up defeating the purpose of wearing them in the first place.
  19. If you ask us which is the most stylish family in the world, it has to the Beckhams. No offense to the Royal Family but the surname Beckham is synonymous to great style.

  20. Once upon a time, a few centuries ago around 1631 AD, a man decided to make the memory of his wife immortal, and thus the Taj Mahal was created. The monument became emblematic of the love and devotion Shah Jahan felt for his deceased wife Mumtaz Mahal, and over the years the monument turned into the epitome of undying love. But even though things are a lot different today in the 21st century, and especially the way we love and express it has undergone some major transformations since the 17th century of Shah Jahan, some essence has remained the same. © MensXP People continue to fall in love, and though they have even found some of the strangest ways of expressing it, some things, such as a husband's love for his wife and concern about her well being continues to remain a constant through the years. Vikas Bagaria's love for his wife Srijana is proof of one such modern act of love, which may not involve erecting a marble monument for the beloved, but involves launching an entire movement to improve the personal hygiene situation for not only his wife but lakhs of others women too. Who Is Vikas Bagaria © MensXP Born into a family of businessmen, Vikas Bagaria is an entrepreneur and angel investor, who holds a MCA in Electronics from Jadhavpur University, Kolkata. He started his first venture right out of college in 1997, but is better known today as the founder of female personal hygiene spray 'PeeSafe'. However, Vikas has also been an angel investor in over 15 startups so far. The Backstory Vikas often finds himself in the company of men and women who are curious as to why Vikas takes such personal interest in the area of female personal hygiene, and Vikas is quick to establish the moment that gave birth to this venture. “My wife Srijana and I were on a road trip from Gurgaon to Gujarat. But when be reached Ahmedabad, she fell sick and had to be admitted into a hospital. She was diagnosed with acute Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)." © MensXP This diagnosis made the couple look at their entire journey more closely. They had stayed in the best hotels and eaten in the best restaurants, and yet Srijana contracted UTI. This made Vikas realise that clean doesn't mean sanitised, and became a cause of personal concern for him. “This gave us the idea of making a product that could be sprayed on a toilet seat, would kill germs and reduce the chances of UTI all at once for women. That is how PeeSafe came into being when I was looking for new ventures to soothe my investor's impulse.” PeeSafe Then & Now © MensXP There once came a point in Vikas' journey with PeeSafe, when he wanted to go back to his older projects, which were doing well and were professionally managed at the time. He was almost about to sell PeeSafe when his friend Dheeraj Jain came on-board as the co-founder of a new company called Redcliffe Hygiene which now owns PeeSafe. But the biggest challenge were people's mindset. Vikas' friends and relatives simply couldn't wrap their heads around why a man would want to create something related to women's hygiene. But Vikas only had a plain and simple response to that, “why can't men make a product for women? Why can't he for she?” © MensXP Past this initial challenge, PeeSafe is today available at across 3000 stores around India, and the brand has also launched internationally in countries like Nigeria, Singapore, Kenya but now they are planning to go all out and launch production in first world countries too. What's Next The expansion plans are in top gear, and with their hygiene partnership with 'Toilet Ek Prem Katha' and with famous faces like Akshay Kumar and ace shooter Manu Bhaker as their ambassadors, the brand plans to achieve a lot more in the times to come. © MensXP With close to 65 people on and off the ground associated with the brand directly, PeeSafe wants to become “a generic term for female hygiene”. And if there was one piece of advice Vikas could lend to budding entrepreneurs, it's that “keep doing what you are doing, be honest to yourself, be a job provider, that is the biggest satisfaction. And when it comes to funding, don't celebrate funding, celebrate exit because that's where all the money is.” Learn more about the trade secrets and valuable lessons, from the man himself in this video.
  21. When it comes down to building an amazing physique, we all admire the greatest bodybuilder of all time Arnold Schwarzenegger. His size and conditioning are one of the best in bodybuilding. Arnold had the best chest during his time. Now in this article, I will share the tips to get your chest huge and in shape like Arnold. The chest is one of the favourite body parts when it comes down to building a jaw-dropping physique. It is also one of the most difficult muscles to develop as it needs size and symmetry. © YouTube As every one of you always trains your chest once or twice per week it's really hard for most of you to get the symmetry and conditioning. While developing size and symmetry, it really comes down to choosing exercises that allow symmetrical growth in the upper chest, middle chest, and lower chest while still providing overall mass to your chest. If your chest workout is unbalanced and supports one portion of your chest over the other, over time this will lead to imbalances and take away from the aesthetics of your chest. When doing chest workouts, you need to have a solid mind-muscle connection so that secondary muscles don't take away the tension when performing chest exercises. Coming down to the anatomy to develop the chest- © YouTube The chest is divided into 3 parts: 1) Upper Chest- involves shoulder flexion. 2) Middle Chest- involves horizontal adducting movements that don't involve shoulder flexion or extension 3) Lower Chest- involves shoulder extension Things you would need to apply to grow your chest over time. 1) Progressive Overload: The magical rod to grow your muscle is progressive overload. It means that to put more tension on your muscles over time. In simple terms, to lift more weight or perform more volume than before! It is the key driver of hypertrophy. If you're progressing time to time, you'll build muscle. It has a greater impact on muscle growth than any muscle building secret. This can be achieved by increasing a rep or a set or load. (Volume= sets x load x reps) 2) Full Range Of Motion: Scientific Literature says doing full reps on a given exercise recruits more muscle fibres when compared to half reps or partial reps. Perform all your chest exercises with full range of motion. 3) Mind Muscle Connection: Remember Arnold talking about feeling and squeezing your muscles when working out? Well, there is science behind it. Mind muscle connection concept is very simple—you have to connect your mind with the muscle which you're targeting during your exercise. Mind Muscle connection can be beneficial when doing single joint movements like cable flys. A sample chest workout plan for you, which covers your entire chest: © YouTube Barbell or dumbbell bench press: 3sets of 6-8 reps Incline Dumbbell press: 3 sets of 8-10 reps Chest Double Bar Dips: 3 sets of 8-12 reps Cable Flys: 3 sets of 12-15 reps Author Bio: Yashovardhan Singh is an online fitness coach with www.getsetgo.fitness, an online fitness platform.

  22. Oman Confined to mere 24 against the Mighty Scotland, registering the lowest ever ODI Total © Twitter/@ICC In the world of sports, we witness players and teams achieving new records, shattering the old ones. But sometimes, the same players and teams end up setting unwanted records, owing to disastrous performances. Something similar happened with Oman On Tuesday when they were bowled out for a grand total of mere 24 against Scotland in the first ODI of a three-match bilateral series between the two teams. They thus set the record for the lowest ever ODI total (scroll down for the full list of lowest-ever totals). After losing the toss, Oman were asked to bat first, after which they could just post 24 runs on the board. Out of this two dozen, 15 runs were scored by Khawar Ali, the only player to hit double digits. A total of five players, including both the openers, were bowled out for ducks. © Reuters Adrian Neill and Ruaidhri Smith proved picked four wickets each for Scotland, giving away just 14 runs in total. It was a piece of cake for the Scottish-openers, Matthew Cross and Kyle Coetzer, who wasted little time, and wrapped up the innings in 20 balls, with 10 wickets in hands.

  23. If fashion students are told that for a masterclass in maximalism, they can choose only one person as their reference subject, no one should really have any trouble choosing that person. Ranveer Singh fits the bill effortlessly, but the thing that always keeps him relevant is the unassuming manner in which he carries off everything, like he doesn't even realize that it's 'not ordinary' and 'extra'. It's like he feels at home wearing stuff that other people won't even dare to in their wildest dreams, and that is what sets him apart. One important thing about his wild ensembles is that they teach us inclusivity. Right from wearing skirts and Angrakhas to his wedding to wearing ensembles that outright looked like 'Ghagras', this man has always been so secure about his masculinity, that he never paid heed to naysayers on what 'men should not wear'. The latest instance had him wear a pair of boots with high heels to an award show, and owning the look like a boss. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Who won't want to look as graceful on a red carpet? Plus, heels, of course, makes one look taller than they are. Only if every man was as easygoing as Ranveer to actually try it out and reap the benefits. © Instagram/Asiavisionawards © Viral Bhayani Coming to his outfit, we love the turquoise snakeskin patterned suit by Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna. Plus, it fits him like a second skin! © Viral Bhayani © Instagram/Asiavisionawards All we can say is, Ranveer Singh legit is the fashion icon everyone should learn a thing or two from, even if they aren't on board with everything he wears.
  24. Over a period of time, we have heard many stories of dramatic comebacks, tales that go beyond the locker rooms. The extraordinary examples of hard-word, discipline and determination to overcome challenges were the main highlights of this year's Laureus World Sports Awards, which were held in Monaco on Monday. Tennis world No. 1, Novak Djokovic won the Best Sportsman of the year award for the 4th time, equalling the record of Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt in the same category. The Serb faced a major blow in February 2018 when he was threatened by a serious elbow injury, for which he had a surgery done. But the 'Stubborn Djokovic,' as his wife Jelena lovingly calls him, not only made his way back to the court but also went on to win two Grand-Slams consecutively, first the US Open in September and recently the Australian Open. © Reuters Jelena added that for her husband, tennis was “not about money or glory but for value and purpose.” The Indian NGO, YUWA, who won the 'Sport For Good' Award this year, is a Jharkhand based NGO which works for girls empowerment. The Sport For Good Award was inaugurated by the great Nelson Mandela, who believed that “sport has the power to change the world.” The motive of the award is to “use the power of sports to end violence, discrimination and disadvantage. Proving that sport can change the world.” The NGO YUWA is owned by a Franz Gastler and Ross Thomson Gastler of America and runs a football program in rural Jharkhand covering approx 450 girls. The girls who have been associated with the program have transformed into coaches while the maximum of them are amateurs. Four girls out of the 450, received the award on behalf of Yuwa in the ceremony held yesterday. © Reuters Before the ceremony, former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, kicked a few balls with the girls and said “They are good technically and want to play together. We used to say football is a sport played by 11 selfish individuals but they play like a team and are highly motivated.” Other than Wenger, five-time Olympic champion swimmer, Missy Franklin was also touched by the story of the young Indian women who made it to the big stage despite factors like challenging factors like child marriage, which are still prevalent in many rural parts of India. The Indian cricket team was the first to bag this award in 2004 with their Pakistani counterpart, for continuing the bilateral series, despite the political tensions between the two nations. © Reuters American gymnast, Simone Biles won the 'Sportswoman of The Year' award for the second time, followed by American tennis champion Naomi Osaka, who won the 'Breakthrough of The Year' award for her Consecutive Grand-Slam wins and reaching the top of the WTA's women's ranking. Where Tiger Woods earned the 'Comeback of the Year' award, Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn and Arsene Wenger were awarded 'Spirit of Sport' and the 'Lifetime Achievement' Award, respectively.
  25. Ever since his decision to turn professional four years ago, Indian boxer Vijender Singh has enjoyed an undefeated 10-0 winning streak while having bagged the WBO Asia Pacific and Oriental Super Middleweight titles. View this post on Instagram Still in the ring ðð½ð®ð³ #10yearchallenge #boxing #india #instagram A post shared by Vijender Singh (@singhvijender) on Jan 17, 2019 at 1:21am PST With Lee Markham pulling out of the 13th July 2018 fight and although Singh's UK promoters were looking for a new alternative, nothing formidable came of it as Singh has not fought in a professional ring since December 2017. Now after over one year of inactivity, the Indian champ has decided to take his talents to the United States, the land of opportunities. Known for producing some of the best athletes with the likes of Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson and now Floyd Mayweather Jr., the US has been known as the ultimate dream destination for all the bouters looking for greatness. The 10-0 boxer is moving to the States in hopes of fighting the biggest active names in the business and according to the Times of India, is hoping to go 50-0 throughout his career, a feat achieved only by the great 'Money' Mayweather. View this post on Instagram I got a new jet for my birthday #AirMayweather #TMT Photo Credit: @tmtpilot A post shared by Floyd Mayweather (@floydmayweather) on Feb 24, 2018 at 8:39pm PST But exactly how difficult is that going to be? Beginning with the fact that going undefeated throughout your entire is next to impossible, what could be a challenge bigger than Singh's opponents is his age. Mayweather was 11-0 when he was just 20, 13 years younger than what the Indian boxer is today. By the time the American boxer had turned 33, he was already 42-0. Also, now that he has decided to move to Los Angeles, the home to brilliant fighters like Canelo Álvarez and Michael Fielding who compete on a level much higher than Singh was used to during his time in the UK, his technique and finishing abilities will be put to test. Not to doubt the Indian boxer's talents, who is missing the square ring and is desperate for his next brawl, we'd like to wish him all the luck in the world for his move to the city of angels.
