  1. While revamping utility and public structures has been the need of the hour, the New Delhi Railway Station can't be left untouched for long. Just a month ago, Mathura Railway Station got an absolutely new look and now it's time for Delhi to literally shine. The station was given an artsy feel, rich in culture and heritage and now every time we're catching a train from there, we'd be afraid to miss it, because it's done up quite elaborately and beautifully. The station building looks quite vibrant with some colourful patterns strewn across, with wall art and geometrical designs all over the ceilings. It really looks like we're amidst a colourful little cultural village. The station has also upgraded its public facilities like LED lights, escalators and LCD displays, all over. © Twitter The station will be equipped with solar panels for deriving energy from them and it'll be kept clean throughout. Well, Delhi isn't the only station that has been revamped. Apart from Mathura, there is also Haridwar, Jaipur and Lonavla. They've all been beatified and upgraded just as Delhi and Mathura. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal tweeted about the development of the station: बदलता भारत, बदलतॠरà¥à¤²à¤µà¥à¤ सà¥à¤µà¤¿à¤§à¤¾à¤¯à¥à¤, सà¥à¤µà¤à¥à¤à¤¤à¤¾ à¤à¤° सà¥à¤à¤¦à¤°à¥à¤¯ सॠभरा नठदिलà¥à¤²à¥ रà¥à¤²à¤µà¥ सà¥à¤à¥à¤¶à¤¨ à¤à¤¾ नया à¤à¤à¤°à¥à¤·à¤ रà¥à¤ª यातà¥à¤°à¤¿à¤¯à¥à¤ à¤à¥ à¤à¤ विशà¥à¤µà¤¸à¥à¤¤à¤°à¥à¤¯ रà¥à¤²à¤µà¥ सà¥à¤à¥à¤¶à¤¨ à¤à¤¾ à¤à¤¹à¤¸à¤¾à¤¸ à¤à¤°à¤¾ रहा हà¥à¥¤ pic.twitter.com/rUiirbwjDj — Piyush Goyal (@PiyushGoyal) 14 March 2019 The new look of the Railway station went down pretty well with most people and they took to Twitter to praise the efforts made by the Ministry of Railways and the Indian Railway Station Development Corporation.

Or you can just check out these pictures here: © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter The Indian Railway Station Development Corporation (IRSDC), which is a special purpose vehicle (SPV) for revamping and developing such structures, will invest about Rs 7,500 crore, for redeveloping close to 50 railway stations across India. Simultaneously with that, they will also have a beatification drive alongside, which will entail paintings and art along the premises of the station. We're glad the Indian Railways are making an effort to revamp old stations and after airports, this was pretty much the need of the hour.
  2. If it's dumb and it works, it's not dumb anymore. Yes, this is basically how we can define 'jugaad', a concept that each and every desi person is familiar with and something we all follow religiously. One person, though, decided to take his jugaad skills to an even higher level by using what seems like a shaving mirror instead of a regular rear-view mirror. Yep, never knew you can just use that if you're too broke. 'Objects in the mirror might be a little shaky, but hey, at least you can see them.' The picture was posted on Reddit and honestly caused people to have a discussion about something no one has ever had - rear-view mirrors. Some people thought it was genius, some thought it was stupid, and some just made a lot of jokes about it. Well, at least this person knew the importance of rear-view mirrors and is not one of these annoying people on the road who keep their mirrors shut and cut you off on the road all the time. Just a little shaky, tho. Exactly! I'm surprised too, tbh. It'll just fall and come under someone's tyre.
  3. When you're shopping for shaving supplies, it's almost impossible not to feel a little intimidated by the sheer number of products out there. If you go to the supermarket, you find that there's a whole aisle dedicated to them. The same thing happens when you shop online and are confronted by pages upon pages of search results. In fact, you probably wouldn't be alone in wondering if you should be adding several steps to your trusty shaving routine in order to get the best results. Gentlemen, it's time for you to dispel these doubts from your mind. Shaving is an important element in every man's attempt to look well-groomed, but there's really no need to overcomplicate it. The fact of the matter is, if you buy every new shaving product you see in a blind panic, you're likely to end up with a collection of shaving paraphernalia that doesn't really go well with each other. The result? You end up with underwhelming grooming results and do your skin more harm than good in the process. What's The Solution? A top-of-the-line razor and some shaving cream are not enough to get the best shave, and hundreds of shaving products are nothing but overkill. What you need to achieve grooming perfection is a shaving kit. What's that, we hear you ask? It's a pre-packaged set of grooming products that work together cohesively to give you the smoothest shave possible. It's a real no-brainer - someone else does all the hard work of putting together the best products into one set, and all you have to do is go through the motions and enjoy your great shave. What's more? Buying one of these kits is much cheaper than buying each component individually, so you make some great savings too. Not only are they great for your appearance, but they're also excellent long term investments for the spruced-up gent who takes his appearance seriously. What To Look For What constitutes a great shaving kit is really a matter of personal taste and depends on your grooming requirements. Some men need a whole gamut of shaving as well as pre and post-care products to look their best. Others (the lucky ones) require just the basics to achieve the desired result. As luck would have it, there are many such kits on the market right now, each with its own set of products to offer. Selecting the best shaving kit from this multitude of options can be a tough task, but we've put together the following list of options that deliver in terms of product and value, to help with the selection process. Choose From The Best Shaving Kits To Achieve That Perfect Shave 1. Merkur 5-Piece Shaving Gift Set © Amazon If you were looking for a gift for a man who is serious about his facial hair but also likes a bit of style, then this shaving kit from Merkur is quite possibly the perfect choice. It comes with all the essentials - safety razor, shaving bowl, shaving soap, badger brush, and stand. The flair is added by the chrome-plated finish, which means you can place this proudly in your bathroom along with all your other grooming essentials. This kit features the Merkur 23C, an ideal choice for someone who is trying out double edge safety razors for the first time. It has a closed comb design but is lighter than Merkur's more advanced offerings. This means it's easier to handle, resulting in a smooth shave without much effort or nicks and cuts. The badger brush does a great job of providing an incredibly rich lather with each use, while the glycerine-based shaving soap is gentle on your skin. The deep resting shaving bowl is an extremely convenient addition to the whole ensemble and the chrome-plated finish to each element guards against rust and decay. This means that all you need to replace regularly is the shaving soap, while every piece will last you a really long time. MRP: Rs. 35, 215 Buy It Here 2. Bevel Shave System Starter Kit © Amazon Specially designed to reduce the risk of nasty skin irritations and bumps, this comprehensive shaving system from Bevel takes care of the whole shaving experience from start to finish.

Their shave cream is rich in aloe vera, which adds a soothing touch with every application. The triple action badger brush helps you work up a rich lather before the safety razor works its magic. Once you've rinsed off, finish with their restoring balm to ensure that your skin remains incredibly smooth post-shave. When it comes to selecting the best shaving kit on the market, this one definitely deserves your full attention. MRP: Rs. 13, 410 Buy It Here 3.

Don't worry, they've also thrown in five extra blades to make sure you don't have to use blunt razors on your face. The final act is to apply their bourbon cedar cologne, a natural, essential oil-based fragrance. If you're going on a trip, you can carry it all along with you in their natty washed canvas travel bag so that you can keep up with your grooming routine even when you're on the move.

  4. Can you imagine a guy, who was once in a Twilight movie is now a freaking Oscar winner? Yeah, me neither. I feel like no one really remembered Rami Malek playing a vampire in the last Twilight movie, and it's safe to say he's come a long, long way since then. Rami is still being smothered in praises for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and now, he has another incredible role already lined up. Turns out, he's going to play the villain in the next Bond movie. Actually, it's not like his Oscar win had to do anything with him getting the role, the only problem was scheduling, as he had to shoot for 'Mr Robot'. But, now it seems like everything has been figured out and the negotiations are almost done. Get ready, we will probably have a cool new Bond villain soon! Everyone is! Rami Malek going from Freddie Mercury to Bond villain? I'm down for that! https://t.co/mqZJ63mOTw — Tyler Calvert (@Tyler_Calvert23) February 27, 2019 Just to be clear, they wanted him before the Oscar win. They love getting recent Oscar winners for their villains. First Javier Bardem, then Christoph Waltz, now Rami Malek. I dig it. — charley15z (@tcallerman) February 27, 2019 Let him! Please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth. https://t.co/d0lzkKx84j — Adam Lowes (@adlow76) February 27, 2019 He would be, tbh. This makes me very happy. I could see Rami Malek becoming an iconic Bond villain given the talent involved in this movie. https://t.co/u9vIoxxecd — Nolan Dean ð(he/him) (@nolandean27) February 28, 2019 Everything is a surprise! Damn, Rami's career is like rocket science. I remember when he was playing as Benjamin in Breaking Dawn. Now he got an Oscar and playing as villain in Bond 25. ðhttps://t.co/Yu8mLTrHEV — Dinda. (@ClaireBearStory) February 27, 2019 I need to check them out now. If you've seen Rami Malek in interviews you'll know he's already a Bond villain. — Dan Marcus (@Danimalish) February 28, 2019 He really is. Awards season made me side eye him, but he's a great actor. I'm into it. https://t.co/DoVqO4rN4G — Ami (@Amic_8197) February 27, 2019 He would be so good. LISTEN I like this. Despite the steaming pile of garbage that is Bohemian Rhapsody, I think that Malek is a very good actor and I definitely think he would make a cool, suave, unpredictable villain. Especially in a Cary Fukunaga movie! https://t.co/fPwfE2xSFa — Mary (@mareli221) February 27, 2019 Yes, everyone. Am I going to watch a Bond movie purely for Rami? Of course https://t.co/pt00ayKnhg — zoe is kinda ia (@arcofagamotto) February 28, 2019 Someone make it happen! Me reading this tweet still waiting for @idriselba to be announced as bond. pic.twitter.com/VGx7juuMpv — Mike Namez (@MikeNamez) February 27, 2019 It would kill it! imagine idris elba as bond and rami malek as the villian... THE FLAVOR https://t.co/2YcFNke6wJ — amber (@tyrellwellthic) February 27, 2019 Can't wait. Rami Malek is rumoured to be the next Bond villain, can't wait for him to add 16 syllables to "Mr Bond" — Cam Williams (@MrCamW) February 28, 2019
  5. The Apple Watch has been dominating the wearables market ever since it was announced and is now considered the best smartwatch there is. The Apple Watch has added many useful features over the years, however, it lacked one feature that has been absent for a while. © Pillow The Cupertino giant is rumoured to be testing sleep tracking securely and according to insiders who spoke to Bloomberg and detailed Apple's plans. The Apple Watch is expected to launch the sleep tracking feature in 2020 and will essentially also kill third-party apps that are currently offering the same feature on the Apple Watch. Currently, apps like Pillow and Sleep++ offer a similar feature where it tracks a user's sleeping patterns and habits. Smartwatches that tend to have a sleep tracking feature usually last for days due to a larger battery. This will be a major hurdle for Apple to overcome, as the Apple Watch can last only for a day on a full charge. Apple may have to outfit the 2020 Apple Watch with a bigger battery or add a low power setting for speed mode. © Beddit Apple recently bought Beddit, a company that makes sleep tracking devices as well as apps for iOS and the Apple Watch. The company also launched a sensor strip that can be placed underneath a bed seat to track sleeping patterns and snoring habits. Sleep-tracking has been one of the most requested features by Apple Watch users, however, Apple will have to either increase the battery capacity or come up with a different solution in order to run this feature. We can only be sure when the new Apple Watch will be announced this year and its capabilities and see if it hints at the upcoming feature with a larger battery or a new power saving mode.

  8. The WWE Universe was in absolute shock when in October last year, the one-time Universal Champion, Roman Reigns let the world know how he had Leukemia and had been fighting blood cancer for 11 years behind-the-scenes. On a later October episode of Monday night Raw, the Samoan wrestler let the audience know that in order to battle the disease more intimately, he had to go away from the WWE for some time and had to give up his title in the process. Breaking his character for maybe the very first time, Reigns had said: “My real name is Joe and I have been living with Leukemia for 11 years.” People were crying and hurting but were united in support of the 'Big Dog'. Thank you to everyone who's reached out...I can't put into words what it means to me. Your energy and positivity motivate me to get better quickly to get back in the ring, but for now I'm going to spend time with my family and focus on health. Thank you - Joe/Roman — Roman Reigns (@WWERomanReigns) October 23, 2018 But, Reigns didn't forget to mention that he is in no way retiring from WWE and once he was done “whooping Leukemia's ass,” he was going to be back on Raw, healthy as ever, to take what was rightfully his, the WWE Universal Championship. Now, exactly four months since Reigns let the world in on his painful secret, WWE.com made an official statement saying that Reigns is set to make a comeback to the franchise show, albeit for one night, to address the update on his battle versus the cancer. WWE CEO, Vince McMahon too, took to Twitter with an update: .@WWERomanReigns (aka Joe Anoa'i) will address the status of his fight with leukemia this Monday on Raw. #fighter #proud #classy pic.twitter.com/kgXD8SHwVc — Vince McMahon (@VinceMcMahon) February 21, 2019 Well, it looks like Reigns kept his word after all. Four months ago, 'The Guy' had said that he would soon be back to the ring, to 'his yard', as he so proudly claims it to be and Roman is finally going to be home. A couple of weeks ago, former WWE wrestler and Hollywood star, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson had expressed his love for Reigns, his cousin, over his tireless war against Leukemia and how it had evolved Reigns' “state of mind”. Very proud of him. His leukemia recovery has elevated his state of mind to a whole other level. And it was fuuuun to go legit beast mode with my cousin in our movie where he plays my brother. #LetTheBodiesHitTheFloor #HobbsAndShaw AUG 2nd. https://t.co/bqpLFQC1Z1 — Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) January 28, 2019 In the process of defeating the disease, Reigns believes that his return to the WWE would not just be about wrestling and winning titles but will come with a purpose: “I am coming back because I want to show all of you, the whole world… that when life throws a curveball at me… I will always swing for the fences.” Reigns' fans finally took a breath of fresh air and reacted in joy over the internet: Hell yes the Big Dog returns. I hope his battle with leukemia is either over or almost there. Roman is missed. pic.twitter.com/E929lnSLCM — Mark Collins (@MarkCol14113961) February 21, 2019 pic.twitter.com/n0ZQ8IBDPp — N.O.R (@MeIAmNOR) February 21, 2019 .. really ..!!!

  9. MWC (Mobile World Congress) is an annual trade show that happens in Barcelona. It marks a very important milestone in the telecom as well as the phone industry, since brands announce their plans for the upcoming year and this helps in setting a proper roadmap for upcoming tech. While one would expect the MWC 2019 to be all about 5G, folding phones shall be stealing the limelight this year. © YouTube For years, we've heard Samsung tease bendable displays, and we're finally going to see them in the wild. In fact, the world's first bendable phone has already been shown off at CES 2019 by Royole. We have a made a list of folding smartphones that we expect to see at MWC this year: 1. Samsung Galaxy Fold or X: © YouTube We aren't sure what the official name of the phone will be and the rumour mills have churned out a lot of them. This is the same phone Samsung had showed-off last year for a few seconds, and we expect it to go on sale by the end of this year. Reports suggest that Samsung will call it the "Infinity Flex" display and it'll measure 7.3-inches with a resolution of 2152 x 1536 pixels. It's slated to cost a whopping US$ 1,800 (Rs 1,29,000) at launch and will sport a gigantic 6,000+ mAh battery. The battery shall be split and divided into the two sides. Reports also suggest that Samsung will call the interface OneUI and will let the user open three apps at once. Obviously, it shall be powered by the latest Snapdragon 855 processor or even Samsung's own Exynos chipset. 2. Huawei's Foldable Phone: © LetsGoDigital Huawei has emerged as a major long term player and is currently among the few to compete with Samsung in the flagship range. While Samsung has been officially teasing foldable phones for years, we've seen multiple patent filings by Huawei to confirm the brand is serious about the segment. Not much is known about its phone right now, but Huawei's CEO had told in an interview once that the foldable phone can replace your laptops. Reports suggest it will sport a 7-inch display and support 5G. If Huawei is serious about marketing the phone as a laptop replacement, it shall also have a blazing fast processor for top-notch performance on the go. 3. LG: © LetsGoDigital Samsung and LG not only compete indirectly selling smartphones but also have a rivalry in the display panel segment. The two supply a huge chunk of panels to other OEMs and Samsung has managed to get an edge with OLED panels. With folding displays, LG doesn't want to miss out on the opportunity. LG has registered three brand names: Flex, Foldi, and Duplex. Flex could be a curved phone, Foldi could be a folding phone, Duplex could be a larger tablet cum phone with two folds. For now, we haven't heard much about their plans, and given the poor sales record of LG phones, we expect the brand to go hard on this concept to make a comeback. 4. Motorola: © WikiMedia The brand was insanely popular back in the day for its RAZR phones. The flip phones had created a hype of their own and the series had helped Motorola become a top phone maker. Now, the brand is owned by Lenovo and intends on making a nostalgic, but modernised comeback with Razr branding. Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing said that foldable screens may be the key to reintroduce the RAZR. There have been patents registered that suggest the company is exploring this design line. 5. Xiaomi: © Xiaomi Last month Xiaomi released a prototype video that showed both sides of the phone can be folded to transform it from a tablet into a more compact phone. Xiaomi's president revealed that they have employed a four-wheel drive foldable shaft technology and a foldable display to achieve the form factor. The prototype visible in the video demonstrates only the folding functionality of the device and all other specifications remain unknown. Xiaomi has become a major player globally and is capable of derailing other products in the segment with aggressive pricing.
  10. Regardless of what 'Game of Thrones' might have you believe, winters are actually coming to an end. And with summers right around the corner, the one fashion staple that all Indian men should be thinking about investing in are T-shirts. After all, not only are t-shirts the go-to choice of attire for Indian men during the scorching summer heat (owing to just how comfortable and breezy they tend to be), but they also require the least amount of effort to pull off. The fact that you can also use them to layer up your other outfits only ends up being an added bonus. And so for those of you out there planning on upgrading your summer wardrobe, here are five tips you absolutely should be adhering to before purchasing your next tee, so as to make sure that you are only rocking the best t-shirts for men out there, and nothing else. 1. Invest In Solid Colours © Official Instagram/Kartik Aaryan Sometimes, it's best to stick to basics. While printed t-shirts (especially floral, monochrome and abstract prints) are becoming quite popular, they will never prove to be as useful to you as their solid coloured counterparts. After all, putting on a solid tee with a pair of trousers or washed jeans personifies that golden fashion rule 'less is more!' Another benefit of investing in solid colours? You get unlimited options to layer up your outfits. After all, if your wardrobe comes equipped with the best white t-shirts for men, or the best black t-shirts for men out there, you've pretty much stocked your wardrobe with the staples needed to create different looks. 2. Make Sure They Are Made Of The Right Fabric © Official Instagram/Vicky Kaushal When it comes to the t-shirts you are planning on wearing, you cannot afford to ignore their fabric composition. After all, since you'll be mostly wearing them during the summers, you cannot afford to opt for fabrics that won't be comfortable to wear. This is where opting for t-shirts that are made from Supima cotton makes for a great choice. Besides being twice as softer than regular cotton t-shirts (which takes care of your comfort), Supima cotton t-shirts are also up to FOUR TIMES stronger than their regular counterparts, which effectively makes them more durable and resistant to wear-and-tear. 3. Don't Forget About The Fit © Official Instagram/Varun Dhawan While the absolute best way of ensuring you get a tee that fits you to a T (pun not intended!) is to have it be custom-made, that's neither a practical nor an affordable option. As such, paying attention to your T-shirt's fit is highly advisable. A lot of this also depends on the type of body you harbour. For instance, if you have a bulky and well-defined physique, then opting for a tight fitting tee that will help accentuate your body makes sense. If you happen to be more on the skinny side, then going for a loose fitting tee is more advisable. 4. Stick To Your Budget © Pexels Being fashion-forward, not compromising on your comfort and sticking to your budget are not mutually exclusive events. In fact, you don't have to go over your budget just to stock up on some quality and premium t-shirts. Fortunately, there are quite a few brands out there, all of which curate t-shirts of a premium build, that also happen to be affordable and cost-effective. 5. Look At The Bigger Picture © Official Instagram/Ranveer Singh Buying a t-shirt in isolation makes for a rookie fashion mistake that an alarmingly large number of Indian men tend to commit. The T-shirt you purchase should not be looked at in isolation. You need to be looking at the bigger picture as well, including the clothes you will be layering up your tee with, the accessories you are going to be rocking (wrist watches, caps, sunglasses), and the type of body you harbour.
  11. We've been talking about a foldable smartphone by Samsung for years and it seems like the company will finally reveal the smartphone. We will finally get a glimpse at Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked event on February 20 as the company teased the smartphone via a tweet. The South Korean company tweeted with the caption “The future of mobile will unfold,” which basically confirms that it would at least give consumers a glimpse into the foldable smartphone which is said to open and close like a book. The future of mobile will unfold on February 20, 2019. #SamsungEvent pic.twitter.com/MHvwrt7Rf4 — Samsung Mobile (@SamsungMobile) February 11, 2019 We've already seen the prototype of the phone back in November when Samsung showed off the foldable phone encased in a bulky cover. Justin Denison, Samsung Electronics America SVP and GM, indicated that the phone was hidden in the case so that the true design could be revealed at its official launch which looks like it will be happening in eight days. © Twitter Denison also detailed that the smartphone could not only expand to seven inches but also run three apps at the same time. It is said to have a very sleek appearance with a screen that “had to be thinner than any other.” © Twitter/CNet Samsung Vietnam may have actually revealed the design of the phone earlier this month in a teaser video that is now deleted. Samsung is not the only phone maker that has been working on a foldable smartphone as Rouyu and LG both plan to launch their foldable device later this year.
  12. What do you keep in mind when you're shopping for a new t shirt? Chances are, not a whole lot. In all fairness, when confronted with shelves upon shelves of t shirts that feature a mind-boggling array of fabrics and fits, it doesn't take long for this seemingly straightforward chore to turn into a Herculean task. It's around this time that we start wondering, “How important IS a t shirt, really?” before grabbing the first ones that fit, from the first store we enter, and then simply forgetting about them until we need new ones. As it turns out, buying the right t shirt is actually quite important - after all, there isn't a more dependable and durable article of clothing in your entire wardrobe. Whether worn casually on its own or as part of a more suave layered ensemble, the ideal t shirt feels like a second skin. So, it makes sense that your first point of consideration should be its fabric. And when it comes to looking for quality t shirt fabric that's light and comfortable while at the same time strong and durable, you can't get any better than supima cotton. Haven't heard of supima cotton before? Don't worry, we've done all the necessary research on why supima cotton is the ideal fabric for your t shirts. Read on, and we're sure you'll feel the same way when you get to the end! Supima Cotton Should Be Your Go-To T Shirt Fabric And Here's Why 1. It's Good For Your Wallet (No, Seriously) © Pixabay This isn't a sneaky ploy to get you to switch to supima, there's actually logic and reasoning behind it. It's all got to do with long term thinking - supima cotton is two times as strong as regular cotton, and produces products that are much more durable and resistant to daily wear and tear. So while you might not see the difference on the price tag, the extraordinary resilience of the supima cotton t shirts make them an ideal long term investment. You'll definitely notice the welcome change in your wallet in the long run, because you won't need to splurge on buying new t shirts as often! 2. It Makes For A Tee-riffic Fashion Experience © Pexels Thanks to its extra long staple cotton fibres, supima cotton makes for extra smooth products that feel sumptuously soft on your skin. Regular cotton fibres are about one inch long, whereas supima cotton's fibre averages one and a half, so it's an appreciable difference too! So, as we said earlier, the ideal t shirt needs to feel like your second skin, which is why it makes sense that it's made from a fabric that's soft, comfortable and breathable.They're also much more breathable than those made from regular cotton, so they won't stick to your skin annoyingly in the hot, sultry weather. As a welcome added bonus, while regular cotton products become increasingly rough over time thanks to countless washes, supima cotton products only get softer as time passes. 3. It'll Make Your Wardrobe Pop © Unsplash It's not just about the feel of supima cotton products - it's the look that's superior as well. The extra long fibres of supima cotton are not only more comfortable, they also absorb colour with a deeper, more lasting penetration. The enhanced shade depth elevates your wardrobe instantly, giving you the option of playing around with richer hues that are sure to make any outfits stand out. And while regular cotton products fade over time, you can rest assured that supima products retain their brilliance year after year, wash after wash. 4. It'll Help You Become A Friend Of Nature © Unsplash We've all heard horror stories of the trials and travails of farmers in remote parts of the world (especially India!) who work tirelessly in their fields to provide the really top-notch fabrics for our pleasure, only to be paid a pittance for their efforts. That's not the case with supima cotton, however - the utmost care is taken to ensure that there is minimum impact on the environment. GPS-navigated tractors are used to plant and harvest the cotton, and satellite technology and soil monitors are used to monitor the conditions. The result is the best quality cotton in the world which you can wear with aplomb, secure in the knowledge that the environment was not harmed in the process. 5. It Doesn't Need Any Extra Attention © Pixabay A running theme with the most exclusive items - be it the fabrics in your wardrobe, gadgets in your room, showpieces on your shelves - is that they need painstaking care to maintain them in all their glory. Not in this case - despite its clear and distinct superiority over regular cotton, supima cotton products do not require any special treatment and can be taken care of just like your regular cotton clothes.
  13. Yes, you read that right. Bollywood's most amazing perfectionist who has established himself as a flawless actor, Pankaj Tripathi is set to appear in a major Hollywood project starring none other than Chris Hemsworth. © Insatgram As previously reported, Chris signed for 'Dhaka' which was filmed across South East Asia, with major chunks being shot in Mumbai and Ahmedabad. Pankaj has reportedly been signed up to play a pivotal role in the movie and joined the crew in Thailand last week for the same. The film will also see Golshifteh Farahani, David Harbour, Randeep Hooda, Manoj Bajpayee play some important roles. The movie is a thriller which is being directed by Sam Hargraves who was the second unit director for the global blockbuster 'Avengers: Infinity War'. The plot of 'Dhaka'is centred on a man trying to save a kidnapped Indian boy from the underbelly of the terror world. Week one down here in India. By far some of the most intense action sequences I've been apart of and the heat certainly adds an edge to it but damn we're getting good stuff!! gonna be unreal. The first shot is of our director, the insanely talented Sam Hargrave ððð¤ð¤ #Netflix pic.twitter.com/Ws04AwrID1 — Chris Hemsworth (@chrishemsworth) November 7, 2018 Recently it was announced that Pankaj will also be joining the cast of Ranveer Singh-Ammy Virk starrer '83 which will re-live the story of the Indian cricket team winning its first ever World Cup in 1983.

More power to the man who makes cinema look so effortless.
  14. Henry Cavill, arguably, is the best 'Superman' we've had till now. His 'out of the world' good looks and solid acting chops help, but the cherry on the cake is his super-jacked physique, and the fact that he knows exactly how to show it off - fashionably so. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Henry Cavill (@henrycavill) on Dec 21, 2018 at 4:17pm PST It's understandable though, that most lifters look jacked in the gym anyway, but what about when they are in a tux? Look at that bicep pump! View this post on Instagram A post shared by Henry Cavill (@henrycavill) on Sep 5, 2018 at 3:33pm PDT He legit pulled out all the stops when he posed right next to a life sized Superman statue with massive muscles (obviously, duh), and looked more buff than that! View this post on Instagram A post shared by Henry Cavill (@henrycavill) on Feb 3, 2019 at 8:53am PST Look at those traps, shoulders, biceps, and triceps! How much is the dude lifting in the gym and what is he eating? Now we don't know whether it's his choice of outfit (a tank top for gun show - classic), or the fact that he's a legit beast in the gym that's helping him do that - but all we can say is: Bravo!
  15. The hunt for the new 'Batman' has almost begun! Yes, you read that right as Ben Affleck has announced that he is stepping down from the iconic role. And today, Warner Bros. has dropped major deets about 'The Batman', which will hit theatres in the summer of 2021. The film will be directed by Matt Reeves and now Warner Brothers' major task is to find a fit protagonist. We have listed down the five most favourable actors who could be considered a perfect fit for the role: 1. Jake Gyllenhaal Jake Gyllenhaal has quickly risen in the eyes of critics to become one of the frontrunners who could play 'Batman'. It would not be wrong to say that Gyllenhaal is a chameleon. He can easily slip into any role and deliver a top-notch performance. Remember 'Nightcrawler' and 'Nocturnal Animals'? What would be these films without Jake playing the lead? In 2005, Gyllenhaal delivered the performance of a lifetime in his film 'Brokeback Mountain' and earned his first Oscar nomination. We believe the actor has got a stronghold on transforming himself and would turn out to be a good looking Dark Knight! The actor has already shown interest in playing Bruce Wayne. 2. Michael Fassbender We know him from his iconic role as 'Magneto' in the 'X-Men' series. It wouldn't be much of a worry if he is chosen to play 'Batman'. Fassbender is strong, he is tall, a white and would turn out to be a spitting image of Bruce Wayne. He has got the charm to play the man who is soft without his mask and a superhero with his alter ego on. Over the years Michael Fassbender has done contrasting roles; where on one hand he depicted a costumed vigilante in 'Assassin's Creed', he also played an emotional man in 'The Light Between Oceans'. His contract with Marvel could turn out to be a problem, as 'Batman' is a Warner Bros. commodity. 3. James McAvoy We now have an idea of James McAvoy's unmatched talent! He has got this supreme ability to play many characters (personalities), the glimpse of which we saw in M. Night Shyamalan's 'Split' and 'Glass'. James McAvoy is prominently seen as Professor Charles Xavier in the 'X-Men' franchise and has got many important award nominations to his name. Though his chances of becoming the 'Batman' are not that strong, since he is already playing a mutant in the Marvel run franchise, we still know somewhere that he could be a perfect fit for this role. 4. Keanu Reeves Let us tell you that Keanu Reeves was earlier in consideration to play the iconic character in 'Batman Forever', however, it was later played by Val Kilmer. During the time of 'Batman vs Superman', he mentioned about playing the caped crusader. Looks like luck didn'tfavourr him! However, now speculations are rife that Keanu Reeves could again be considered for this role. The actor has given many remarkable performances including those in 'The Matrix', 'Constantine' and the recent one in 'John Wick'. Moreover, he has got training in Martial Arts and who knows he is the next 'Batman' saving the world! 5. Michael B. Jordan Michael B. Jordan has been offered several path-breaking roles in all these years. His inclusion in 'Black Panther' and the film's latest nomination at the Oscars may turn things in his favor. The actor has already been nominated for a few awards this year and has even won some of them. Having done films like 'Creed', 'Creed II' and 'Fantastic Four', Jordan could be one surprising pick by the Warner Bros. We would love to see a man of color playing our beloved 'Batman'.
  16. Priyanka Chopra is all set to get back to work after a month-long break courtesy her big fat Indian wedding to beau Nick Jonas. The beautiful couple tied the knot last month and had multiple receptions post that with a few vacations thrown in as well.

PRODUCING AND STARRING TAKE ALL MY MONEY @priyankachopra pic.twitter.com/lrBfgqcnyN — #jess (@hipslikePC) January 30, 2019 Ma Anand Sheela was the spokesperson and the woman in power for the Rajneesh Movement which was led by the controversial spiritual figure Osho. Divulging more details about the project, PC said, “I am developing a feature with Barry Levinson. He is an iconic American director. We are developing it (from the perspective of) Sheela who is this guru who originated from India. She was his right-hand woman and she was devious. She created a whole cult in America. He was called Osho. I don't know if you've heard of him. I am developing that next for me to star in and produce”. © Netflix Ma Anand Sheela and Osho's relationship was explored and viewers were given a visual representation of what exactly happened, when the entire cult moved from India to Oregon and the rise and fall of the Rajneesh movement happened post that. Barry Levinson is an Academy Award-winning director and is the man behind successful movies like 'Rain Man', 'Bugsy' and 'The Natural'. This could be a turning page for Priyanka as it would be a completely new area for her to explore. This would also be her second biopic after 'Mary Kom' and well, what can we say, we are so ready for it!
  17. Apple has already flirted with the idea of providing a gaming experience on your TV via Apple TV. However, a new report suggests that the Cupertino giant is now looking to make a new product that will work on a subscription model. It will work similar to Xbox' Game Pass and plans are still in the early stages, the report said. Another idea was suggested that Apple may also play the role of a publisher with a few development studios. In the gaming world, Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo all offer a subscription service for their respective consoles. It provides gamers access to a large catalogue of games for a monthly subscription fee. Xbox Game pass already offers access to Xbox 360, Xbox Exclusives and other games for $9.99. The Microsoft-owned gaming company also plans to launch a streaming service called xCloud next year. Sony also provides gamers with the ability to stream games via PlayStation Now which includes titles from platforms like PS4, PS3 and PS2. Even though Apple is not known for providing hardware gaming titles on iOS devices, the App Store is home to millions of casual games and players alike. In fact, mobile gaming revenue is expected to reach $106 billion in two years because of titles like Fortnite, PUBG Mobile, Pokemon GO and others. © Youtube Apple has also co-designed a gaming controller with SteelSeries that works with Apple TV. Apple as already patented other input methods and is planning increase in graphical capabilities. For example, the latest iPad Pro is capable of delivering similar graphics performance as the Xbox One S. That's because The A-series CPUs and GPUs found in iPads and iPhones can rival the current generation of gaming consoles. © Youtube/CultofMac Services are a big source of revenue for Apple and since hardware sales have plateaued, a gaming subscription could potentially ad a new source of revenue for Apple. In fact, if Apple provides AAA games with more serious titles rather than casual games, it may just turn the tide in the gaming industry. With the rise of games like Fortnite, PUBG and Clash of Clans, gaming is about to become bigger than ever before and Apple's new subscription could be the game changer for the industry. However, it remains to be seen whether Apple will host AAA games or continue to provide casual games on their platform.
  18. Residents of many parts of India are aware of the hazardous smog we live in. Delhi and Mumbai have repeatedly crossed extremely hazardous levels of air pollution and we've done nothing to curb this. In fact, a majority of the people don't realise how unhealthy the air around us is. When was the last time you looked up and got awed by a crystal clear blue sky? © Reuters In the last decade, mobile phones have evolved from machines that can make a call to portable swiss knives that can do everything. One smartphone today is capable of replacing a camera, MP3 player, television, radio, and even a PC. We've slowly managed to add complex measuring instruments like a gyroscope, accelerometer, barometer, and proximity sensor in them as well. Now, according to a patent filing by Apple, they are considering adding a poison sensor that would be capable of detecting carbon monoxide (CO) and other harmful chemicals. Unfortunately, breathing unhealthy air has become an inevitable part of daily life for many of us.

Being colourless and odourless, it is impossible to detect by humans. If Apple can actually materialize such a sensor, it'll be a vital life-saving tool. Having a miniature gas sensor built into an iPhone or Apple Watch will be able to notify a user that they could possibly be in a dangerous environment at home, at work or in the public. The process of making this feasible includes producing robust miniature gas sensors with features like improved stability, enhanced poisoning resistance, and reduced signal interference. © Via Patently Apple In terms of a long-term solution, the sensors can become part of a larger system that monitors environmental and health hazards and will be a core part of IoT (Internet of Things). Apple Watch has already saved numerous lives thanks to improper heart rate detection, thus predicting diseases and long term health issues. Even the new "trip" function onboard the Series 4 has saved many who couldn't communicate due to an accident. Source: Patently Apple
  19. John Abraham has been giving us some real treats when it comes to weighted entertainment, which not only makes our 2.5 hours worth it, but also illuminates us all at once with its action-packed drama. His choice of scripts have traversed through paths less explored and his upcoming projects just keep getting better and better. What's more, movie-goers and fans cannot get enough of it. 2018 had been a good year for the actor, with both 'Parmanu' and 'Satyamev Jayate' doing really well at the box office, apart from earning their fair share of critical acclaim. This year however, seems to promise us with a different side of the versatile actor, given his upcoming releases 'Romeo Akbar Walter' and 'Batla House' all set to hit the screens this year. © Instagram The first look for 'Romeo Akbar Walter' was released recently, and all the cleverly placed details on the poster didn't escape out attention. The first look of the film presents John in a retro, clean-shaven, lean look. However, it's the image placements in the backdrop that has his fans gushing over John's upcoming release. The poster shows John Abraham in seven other very distinct avatars, and only confirms our expectation that the spy-thriller will be one of the best films to look forward to this year. Why you ask? Give a read to all these deets we dug up on the movie, and you won't have to ask anymore. 1. 'Romeo Akbar Walter' is a thriller which is set against the backdrop of 1971 Indo-Pak War and follows the life of an Indian spy and is said to be based on true events. © Instagram 2. The film is being directed by Robbie Grewal of 'MP3: Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar' fame, and also stars Mouni Roy, Jackie Shroff, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi and Sikander Kher in pivotal roles. 3. The film has reportedly been shot in various locations in and around India, which includes Kashmir, Gujarat, Delhi and Nepal. Reportedly, director Grewal spent hours exploring the various shoot locations and even interacted with the locals to bring authenticity to the plot. 4. Reports also suggest that Sikander Kher shall be portraying the role of John's nemesis in the film. 5. Another fact most of us were unaware of was that Sushant Singh Rajput was initially roped in for the lead role, for a signing amount of 4 crores. But he later opted out of the film due to prior commitments. 6. 'RAW' will be a comeback film for singer and actress Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, who was last seen in 'Mittal VS Mittal' in 2010. 7. According to inside reports, Jackie Shroff will be seen essaying the role of RAW chief in the film. 8. John underwent special trainings and workshops to get into his character for this movie. Talking about the same, director Robbie Grewal once said in an interview that, “John will be attending multiple workshops before the shoot for around 15-20 days to understand how a spy works. He needs to understand how things worked in 1971 and how different they are today in terms of training and interactions. The mental conditioning is as important for a role like this and John's commitment is fantastic”. © Instagram 9. Reportedly, John will be seen donning 8 different looks in the film, which have been designed by Amera Punwani. Also, National Award winning makeup artist Vikram Gaikwad has been roped in for the film to create John's looks. 10. 'RAW' happens to be John's second collaboration with producer Ajay Kapoor after the commercial success of 'Parmanu'. 11. In an interview with IANS, John shared that he was nervous about his role in 'RAW' as this is his "most challenging role to date". 'Romeo Akbar Walter' is set to release on 12th April.
  20. Actors transforming themselves to get into a particular character is nothing new, nor is making a biopic an unusual affair in Bollywood. But, what's new is how seriously Bollywood is taking its transformation game these days. In fact, with Anupam Kher as former prime minister Dr Manmohan Singh and Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Bal Thackray, we've already seen what actors and filmmakers are capable of pulling off.

  21. We already know that Microsoft and Sony are both working on future consoles and are getting ready for the next generation. There are rumours that both companies are working on multiple consoles that will sell at different prices. The next generation of Xbox consoles is set to replace the Xbox One X and will be able to offer 4K gaming natively. © YouTube It is said to have improved hardware and better graphics than the current generation. We've heard rumours of various features that will come on the next generation, however, we want to talk about certain mistakes Xbox can't afford to make in the next generation. One of them includes making India a huge part of their strategy and here's what we think the gaming company needs to do: 1. Nail The Launch Event © Reuters Gamers are very vocal and Microsoft had to learn the hard way when the Xbox One was announced in 2013. In fact, it was a disaster as it wasn't presented as a gaming machine but rather as an entertainment box. Executives failed to talk about games and other features like “always online”, DRM and other issues that had gamers concerned. Messaging plays a crucial role in getting gamers excited and that's where Sony prevailed. The next Xbox launch needs to appeal more to gamers than casual users so that it has a great ecosystem right from the start. 2. Pro-Gaming Features © Microsoft Xbox One has already become a machine that provides the best features that any gamer could ask. The Xbox Game pass makes games more affordable and also lets users play Xbox exclusive games on day 1. All for a subscription price that works like Netflix and lets players play old and new games for a fraction of full retail price. In India, gaming is already an expensive affair and this new feature will make it easier for gamers in India to get access to the latest games for a cheaper price. © Microsoft Xbox already has a huge library of old games that are compatible with the Xbox One. Backwards compatibility is crucial for gamers as we generally like to visit old games. Rumours suggest that the next Xbox consoles are said to have backward compatibility for Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One titles. This would definitely bring a huge advantage to the new console, as Sony has been shying away from providing a similar feature on the PlayStation platform as of now. 3. Better Exclusives © Microsoft There's no secret that Sony PlayStation 4's success had to do with better exclusive games for the consoles. With games like God of War, Spider-Man, Last of Us, Uncharted and other exclusive games made the console a huge success all over the world. In fact, Microsoft has already bought new studios to effectively compete with Microsoft, however, the platform will need a good exclusive at launch to sway gamers to the other side. 4. A Budget Xbox For India © BCCL India is going to be the next big gaming country in the world as we've already seen great success for games like PUBG in the country. Consoles are generally very expensive in India due to import duties that made it exclusive for a nice audience. Xbox can change its fortunes by making a cheaper model just for India or manufacture/assemble all consoles in India to drive the price down. Indians love a bargain which is why it has made companies like Xiaomi, OPPO, and OnePlus super successful in India. The strategy is simple, undercut the competition with aggressive pricing. With a population of 1.3 billion and potential 200 million gamers, Xbox can capture the Indian market with affordable pricing. India is the next big destination for anything technology and gaming needs to follow suit. Rumours are already suggesting that Xbox is working on a budget console, however, we will only know for sure when the next Xbox is made official. 5. Release It Sooner © Reuters The Xbox 360 was the winner of last generation's console wars and there were two main reasons behind it. The Xbox 360 was cheaper than the PlayStation 3 and it launched six months earlier. If Xbox manages to launch the new console before Sony at E3 this year, there's no doubt it will be able to capture the gaming market faster. Do you think Xbox can make it big in India? What do you think Microsoft should do to win the Indian gaming scene. Let us know in the comments.
  22. Anand Mahindra's Twitter account is a goldmine of inspiration and his over 6 million followers can vouch for the same. Be it spotting a rare talent from across the world or sharing inspirational stories; the chairman of the Mahindra Group never fails to impress us with his knack of spotting the best of the world. Reuters Recently, he tweeted about a couple in their late 60s, Vijayan and Mohana, who own a tea shop called Sree Balaji Coffee House in Kochi and spend the money earned to travel the world together.

Their positive attitude towards life and their rich travel experience truly makes them the richest couple in the whole world. After Mahindra tweeted about this, people started replying to him asking if they could help the couple in any way, as the couple takes bank loans along with the income from their tea shop to travel the world. Well, Mr. Mahindra has the perfect solution for it. He requested people to find out the couple's wedding anniversary date, crowdfund the amount for their next foreign trip and gift it to them. Well what about us finding out the date of their wedding anniversary and crowdsourcing the funding for their next trip as an anniversary gift?? https://t.co/gZescVgjQk — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) January 9, 2019 This is the reason why people love him so much.
  23. In September, Apple launched the iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and XR. The three phones were in-line with Apple's iPhone X design language and featured major internal changes only. Though, the smartphone industry underwent some vital changes in terms of design with companies trying their luck with everything. Huawei's P20 Pro and Mate 20 Pro have definitively taken over the mobile photography department and Google's Pixel still kicks ass with a single lens. In this polarised environment, we sure expect Apple to bring in radical changes to the iPhone. Last week, Apple stock dipped massively due to poor iPhone sales owing to their battery replacement program. © BCCL Users just aren't upgrading to a new iPhone thanks to easy and cheap battery replacements. In such a scenario, Apple needs more than just a design change. It needs to be prepared to take on aggressive competition from Samsung, Huawei, and Google. OnLeaks has shared a render that gives us our very first look at Apple's next smartphone – the iPhone XI 2019. The image shows only the rear of the device but it is a big reveal nonetheless. The rumour reveals that Apple will go out of its way to make the upcoming iPhones much special and better than ever before. © Digit x OnLeaks The leaked picture of the iPhone XI reveals that the new iPhone will come with triple rear cameras paired with LED flash. The three camera lenses are located in a squircle manner in the top left corner and the LED flash on the right corner, in an awkward, asymmetric location. At the moment, the exact details of each sensor remain unclear. If we're to guess, one of them shall be the primary lens accompanied by a telephoto sensor. The right lens could be a Time of Flight lens that is more accurate over long distance and can be used for 3D modelling. © Digit x OnLeaks It's being said that the 2019 iPhone models are currently in the Engineering Validation Test (EVT) stage, meaning it's still in early design and how the end product will look isn't finalised yet. The current design we see is very "un-Apple" because the company is known for its attention to detail, and we really hope such an asymmetric design doesn't make it to the finals. Source: Digit
  24. Google's next operating system Fuchsia OS is expected to hit devices in the next few years and apparently, it will be able to run Android apps as well. This will make it easier for Android's existing user base to switch to the new platform when it is available on the next generation of smartphones. © Twitter 9to5Google spotted a new file on Android's open source project website that said: "These targets are used to build ART for Fuchsia.” This means that Google is making a special version of Android Runtime or ART which will be able to run Android apps. "They differ from usual Android devices as they do not target specific hardware. They will produce a fuchsia package (.far file)," the memo reads. © 9t05Google This basically means that users will be able to bring over all their purchases from the Google Play Store to the new operating system without any problems. Based on previous leaks and reports, Fuchsia will be able to run on a range of devices such as phones, tablets and even PCS. This will basically bridge the gap between Android and Chrome OS and work similar to Apple's ecosystem. Having said that, offering backward compatibility for Android apps on the new operating system may make it encouraging for users to upgrade to new devices. Whenever the time comes, the conversion rate can be expected to be fast, as people would be comfortable to try out the new operating system without losing any of their data and purchases.

  25. The next iPhone is expected to have advanced mobile photography that has been tipped to generate excitement amongst users. The 2019 iPhones are expected to follow the same design as the current generation but have some neat camera features. © MensXP According to a report by Bloomberg, Apple is working with Sony to include a long distance 3D camera. This new lens is expected to change smartphone photography game and will also result in better security and gaming. Bloomberg spoke to Sony directly to get this information so the source couldn't have been better. “Cameras revolutionized phones, and based on what I've seen, I have the same expectation for 3D [cameras],” said Satoshi Yoshihara, head of Sony's sensor division, when speaking with Bloomberg. © YouTube Bloomberg revealed Apple's plans for this new camera sensor and Sony subsequently confirmed the commercial availability of the lens. According to Yoshihara and Sony, both the front and rear-facing 3D cameras will be ready in 2019 and “kick off mass production in late summer to meet demand”. The 3D cameras will basically use “Time of Flight” technology that will send out invisible laser pulses and measure the time before it bounces back to build 3d models of objects up to five meters away.
