  1. In a cricket-crazy nation like India, if great Sachin Tendulkar is worshipped as a god, then MS Dhoni is no less than a demigod himself. Amongst noticeable cricketers over the years, Dhoni will always be remembered as one of the key contributors to Indian cricket. While his astute leadership and cricketing skills took India to new heights, his calm and composed demeanor continues to make him a fan-favourite. Such has been his popularity that even when he hasn't featured in national colours for over six months, Dhoni continues to garner public interest and remains a topic of great discussion amongst cricket pundits and fans. The Jharkhand cricketer hasn't played for India since their ouster from the 2019 World Cup in England and Wales. With the Indian selectors already looking beyond Dhoni and, therefore, grooming young Rishabh Pant as his potential successor, speculations have been rife over the former's fall from grace with the national team. But, it was the decision of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to deny him a central contract for the 2019-20 season that is now being labeled as the final nail in the coffin for Dhoni's illustrious career. © Reuters But, despite missing out on a central contract, Dhoni still has a chance to earn his place in the Indian team for the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia later this year. If the 38-year-old intends to keep himself in fray for the ICC spectacle in October, he will need to put up a good show in domestic cricket and the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). While cricketers and coaches close to Dhoni have remained tight-lipped on MSD's future, Team India's head coach Ravi Shastri has reiterated the importance of the IPL 2020 on the former Indian captain's career. He also revealed that Dhoni has been dead honest when it comes to playing for India so there is no way that he will impose himself on the national team. âExactly what I wanted to ask you. There is IPL coming. Uske baad tum dekho. Everyone will know. He will know, selectors will know, the captain will know seeing him, and more important than anything else, he will know. What I'm trying to tell the people is he is the last person to impose himself on anything. You know him. I know him,â Shastri said in an interview with Sportstar. © Reuters âFor years, you know that he's been dead honest when it comes to things of that sort, like when he gave up Test cricket. There was nothing of 100 Tests because he is not the guy who will impose on himself. I don't know if he started practicing as yet or not, but I'm sure if he's keen on the IPL, everything will come out now and he will be ready. For all you know, he may start the IPL, if he doesnât feel good heâll say âThank you very muchâ,â Shastri added. On the cricketing front, while Virat Kohli & co produced a brilliant performance to beat New Zealand by six wickets in the first T20I at Eden Park, Dhoni has been seen training with the Ranchi Ranji Trophy team lately. More recently, Dhoni was seen having a gala time at an event at the Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) stadium in Ranchi where he even tried to whistle with onion spring leaves.

  3. If there's one trend that has been showing up consisently, it has to be oversized chunky sneakers. Though many have a second opinion about this trend, it looks like B-town celebrities cannot get enough of it. Varun Dhawan is a perfect example of someone who has been regularly working the chunky sneakers and makes one heck of an ensemble with them. Be it his 6-inch long leather boots or super funky sneakers, he has never failed to surprise us with his sartorial choices. © Viral Bhayani As he was recently papped while promoting his upcoming movie Street Dancer 3D with Shraddha Kapoor, we noticed him in yet another zany pair of sneakers, While we have seen many stars donning some insane pair of sneakers, he took it a notch higher by wearing 'thorny' sneakers. We didn't see that coming! Take a look here: © Viral Bhayani © Sneakernews Varun is seen wearing Reebok Shaq Attaq "Big Shaqtus". These sneakers have a whole story behind them. The pair is a nod to Shaqs as a member of the Phoenix Suns, the classic 'shaq attaq' silhouette has Suns inspired look. Furthermore, to make it more appealing and give it a desert appeal, this pair has a cactus embroidered on the heel. The threads have been designed in a way that it looks it has thorns. Now, that's definitely a 'wild' fashion choice! © Sneakernews © Viral Bhayani The pair is further with updated colour-blocking that makes it look eccentric. Now, if you are this trend's chaser, these shoes don't cost a bomb. The original price as per Sneakernews is $140. Now, that makes it a worthy deal, right? © Viral Bhayani As for his outfit, Varun made a casual statement with a checked shirt layered over a white T-shirt. Add to that, his minimal distressed jeans elevated his overall look. All in all, even though they are ridiculously large, we still love its sartorial eccentricity. Hats off, Varun!

  4. Sony has confirmed in a statement today that the Japanese gaming company will not be attending E3 this year; making it the second year in a row. E3 is an annual gaming conference and event where new games and consoles were traditionally unveiled by companies like Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo. Xbox boss Phil Spencer already confirmed on Twitter that the company will be present at the gaming conference this year. © Youtube_Reuters The statement was given to GamesIndustry.biz and said Sony "[doesn't] feel the vision of E3 2020 is the right venue for what we are focused on this year. We will build upon our global events strategy in 2020 by participating in hundreds of consumer events across the globe ... We have a fantastic line up of titles coming to PlayStation 4, and with the upcoming launch of PlayStation 5, we are truly looking forward to a year of celebration with our fans.” © Youtube_Sony Computer Entertainment In a separate leak, the PlayStation 5 release date unveiling date and price was leaked on 4Chan. Sony's absence from E3 2019 could be a big mistake as E3 is the biggest gaming conference in the world attended by thousands and watched by millions. Skipping E3 could give Xbox the extra edge to connect with its target audience. Sony had the iconic PS4 presentation at E3 in 2013 which resulted in Sony winning the console wars this generation. It would be interesting to see how fans will react to Sony's absence from E3 this year as well. © Sony Computer entertainment Sony is rumoured to unveil the PlayStation 5 on February 5th via its 'State of Play' event and we hope to know more about the console officially from Sony in the coming weeks. It is kind of disappointing to see Sony skip E3 this year and the event will focus more on Microsoft and Nintendo this year. Source: GamesIndustry.biz View the full article
  5. Disha Patani is not just a pretty face, she's got a head and heart too: Mohit SuriDisha Patani is one of the few faces in Bollywood known for their endless beauty. However, the 27-year-old Baaghi actor boasts of more than just a pretty face as her acting prowess is no less of a crowd-pleaser than her unmatched beauty. Nodding to that, is Indian director Mohit Suri who is working with the diva for his upcoming film Malang. Speaking about her skills, the filmmaker dished the details in an interview saying: “The whole world feels that Disha is just a pretty face and a hot body. She has something more in her. She’s got head and heart too.” "There is a perfect blend of glam quotient and bohemian vibe surrounding the character, both qualities which I could imagine Disha to compliment effortlessly. The response to Disha’s role has been great so far, I’m sure the audience will be able to connect with her even more after watching Malang,” he added.

  7. The US is watching, says President Trump to IranWASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump on Sunday warned the "leaders of Iran" against killing their protesters, as protests against the Iranian leadership intensified across the country after Tehran admitted it had accidentally shot down a Ukrainian airliner. Read more: Iran says it unintentionally shot down Ukrainian plane amid soaring tensions after missile strike As protests continued in different cities across the country, Trump took to Twitter to warn Tehran that "the world is watching" and "more importantly, the US is watching." "To the leaders of Iran - DO NOT KILL YOUR PROTESTERS. Thousands have already been killed or imprisoned by you, and the World is watching. More importantly, the USA is watching. Turn your internet back on and let reporters roam free! Stop the killing of your great Iranian people!" he tweeted. Thousands took to the streets in Tehran to protest against the shooting down of a Ukrainian airliner on Wednesday when tensions soared between the US and Iran. Iran retaliated to a US drone strike ordered by Trump that killed Al Quds commander Qassem Soleimani, by firing a volley of ballistic missiles at two military bases in Iraq that housed American troops. Hours after the attack and as the Iranians braced for a possible US onslaught, the Ukrainian airliner crashed outside Tehran. Iran initially denied it had shot down the Ukrainian airliner. However, as the US and Canada urged Iran to come clean about the cause of the crash, a statement from the Iranian military accepted that the plane had been shot down by mistake. Officials said that the plane had flown close to a "sensitive military centre" and was mistaken for a "hostile target". The statement added that the military was at its "highest state of readiness" amid the US tensions. Scores of people took to the streets in Iran's major cities to chant slogans and protest against the regime, demanding the resignation of the supreme leader and President Rouhani. Clashes have broken out in various cities across the country as riot police sprung into action to quell the unrest. Internet access was reportedly cut off in multiple Iranian provinces ahead of memorials planned a month after the protests. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has demanded that Iran provide "full clarity" on the downing of the plane. Ottawa says the dead included 57 Canadians. Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei also offered his condolences and ordered the armed forces to address "shortcomings" so that such a disaster does not happen again.
  8. It has been more than five months since the Indian cricket team got eliminated at the hands of Kane Williamson and the New Zealand cricket team but the heartbreak continues to stay fresh for many fans of the Men in Blue. © Reuters From questioning skipper Virat Kohli's judgement to sending an inexperienced batsman like Rishabh Pant and off-form Dinesh Karthik ahead of the veteran Mahendra Singh Dhoni to watching the former skipper walking towards the pavilion, disappointed and gasping for breath, the memories of that day will remain in our heads for a long time. @imVkohli today karthik is wrong choice And Rishabh pant 's shot is not gud at that time Or Kohli ur decision is bad For line up of india team Dhoni had came before karthik — pratik kumar shah (@pratikkumarsh14) July 10, 2019 But one moment of the game that left quite the impression in all our hearts and apparently in that the wicket-keeper batsman as well was when Martin Guptil fired the ball towards the stumps at the striker's end and hit bull's eye. Dhoni, who was just a couple of inches away from the crease when the bails flew, had to walk off. Many believed that it was at this moment Dhoni saw the end of his cricketing career. Also, many believed that he was crying, but one thing was for certain, India's dominating run at the 2019 World Cup had met a deadend. Nearly half a year later, Dhoni was interviewed by India Today's Consulting Editor Boria Majumdar about that very moment and the cricketer expressed his regret. He said, “I keep telling myself, why didn't I dive. Those two inches I keep telling myself, 'MS Dhoni, you should have dived.” © Twitter Ever since that day, we haven't seen him on the field. He took a two month sabbatical to serve in the Indian Army but that time off the team hasn't come to an end till date. “January tak mat poochho,” Dhoni had said on November 27, 2019. It is January and there is still no word from the Ranchi-born on his future with the national team. What if Dhoni had leapt for the safe zone that day? How would that have faired out for the cricketer and the team? Would India go on to win the Cup? Would Dhoni continue to be the main wicket-keeper for Virat Kohli? That one moment of misjudgement will never let us get the answers to all those questions and we will just have to live with the burden, just like Dhoni is. View the full article
  9. Fearing a backlash from fans, politicians and religious zealots, Bollywood stars have in the past usually steered clear of India´s fiery politics. But the country´s top actress may have changed that. Signalling a possible generational shift, Deepika Padukone waded into a sea of student protesters in Delhi on Tuesday night, evoking loud cheers from the surprised crowd. Few had any inkling that Padukone would attend the demonstration at a prestigious university where the left-leaning student body has long been in the crosshairs of India´s ruling party. Her appearance sparked a social media war between those wanting her new film boycotted -- suggesting her only motive was publicity for the movie which released Friday -- and others applauding her courage. Either way, many said the moment marked a watershed in India´s multi-billion-dollar Hindi movie industry. "It was a gutsy move," said Mumbai-based novelist and commentator Shobhaa De, and reflected a "big shift" for Bollywood. "Stars today understand that their constituency is young India, and young India respects people who speak up," De told AFP. In a country where obedience to elders is all but enshrined in law, young Indians are demanding the right to be heard, protesting against everything from university fee hikes to most recently a new citizenship law criticised as anti-Muslim. And in an age ruled by social media, even movie stars are not insulated from the issues that matter to their fans. "None of this would be happening without social media," said actress Swara Bhasker, one of the few stars who have consistently spoken out against the government. "Bollywood has faced so much criticism on Twitter for not being politically engaged, and much of it from young people who are your target audience," she told AFP. "Why would you want to alienate them?" Cannot stay neutral Another factor is events on the ground since Prime Minister Narendra Modi´s government passed the citizenship law last month. Hundreds of thousands of people have participated in demonstrations nationwide, and at least 25 have been killed in clashes with police. Last Sunday, masked attackers went on the rampage at Delhi´s Jawaharlal Nehru University, injuring 34 people and sparking yet more protests. "Ultimately the film industry is a microcosm of society, and I don´t think images of bloodied students go down well with middle-class Indians," Richa Chadha, another actress, told AFP. "Actors are not elected officials but they can sense the mood of the nation," she added. A year ago Modi posed for a now-famous selfie with the who´s-who of Bollywood, including Padukone´s husband Ranveer Singh. Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan, two of the stars who appeared in that selfie last January, have now both spoken out against the violence. "My heart goes out to all the students back home in Delhi," Malhotra tweeted last month, calling it "sad to see violence against citizens for voicing their opinion through peaceful protests". "I think we cannot stay neutral in such issues," said Dhawan. Awakened conscience In contrast to Bollywood´s younger generation, the old guard including superstars such as Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan have not commented on the protests. They perhaps have learned the hard lesson that sticking your neck out is a dangerous business, risking film boycotts, the loss of lucrative sponsorship deals, or worse. Padukone´s last release "Padmaavat" came under fire from religious radicals linked to Modi´s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) who objected to her portrayal of the legendary Hindu queen in the epic. Mobs attacked the director and vandalised the set. One BJP politician even offered a bounty for the actress to be beheaded, and a Molotov cocktail was lobbed at a cinema. On Friday, cabinet minister Smriti Irani accused Padukone of being unpatriotic and standing "with people who wanted the destruction of India". "You are damned if you speak up and damned if you don´t," said Chadha. Bhasker, who has been the target of vicious online bullying over her views, praised Padukone. "For years it´s been easy to malign those of us who spoke up and write it off as a publicity stunt, so to have the biggest female star in the country do it is a huge win in the perception battle," she said. "Ultimately though, this moment belongs to the protesters and the students who have awakened this country´s conscience."
  10. An image grab from footage obtained from the state-run Iran Press news agency on January 10, 2020 shows Iran´s civil aviation chief Ali Abedzadeh delivering a press statement in Tehran. Photo: AFP/ Ho/Iran PressTEHRAN: Iran's Civil Aviation Organisation chief Ali Abedzadeh said on Friday he was confident that a Ukrainian airliner which crashed after taking off from Tehran's Imam Khomeini airport was not hit by a missile. "One thing is for certain, this airplane was not hit by a missile," Abedzadeh told a news conference in Tehran after Britain and Canada both said intelligence sources suggested a catastrophic error by Iranian air defence batteries had downed the aircraft. "The information in the black boxes ... is crucial for the aviation organisation to make a statement," Abedzadeh said, adding that they were intact and under examination. Also read: Iran says US suspecting Tehran shot Ukraine plane by mistake makes 'no sense' Dismissing allegations against Iran, he said that "any remarks made before the data is extracted ... is not an expert opinion." The statements from Britain and Canada came as video footage emerged that appeared to show the moment the airliner was hit. The footage, which The New York Times said it had verified, shows a fast-moving object rising to an angle into the sky before a flash is seen, which dims and then continues moving forward. Several seconds later an explosion is heard. "We have seen some videos. We confirm that the airplane was on fire for 60 to 70 seconds," Abedzadeh said. But "that it was hit by something cannot be scientifically correct," he added.
  11. Looks like, Bengal BJP Chief Dilip Ghosh didn't learn his lesson about trolling back when he claimed that every desi cow's milk contains gold. Remember that little gem of a comment? Yeah, now he's done something even worse, and sadly it's not even funny. Recently, he was addressing a rally in Nadia and since the entire road was blocked for it, he didn't even let an ambulance pass through during it. What if it was an emergency? What if someone was dying and changing the route like that consumed even more time? #WATCH West Bengal: State BJP chief Dilip Ghosh orders to divert route of ambulance during an event in Nadia; says, "divert the route of ambulance as hundreds of people are sitting here. They (TMC) are doing it purposely. It's their tactic to disrupt this rally." (06.01.2020) pic.twitter.com/SALCvph6QQ — ANI (@ANI) January 8, 2020 Not only he refused to give way for the ambulance, he even threw accusations that it was sent to cause disruptions to the rally. He said, "Divert the route of the ambulance as hundreds of people are sitting here. They (TMC) are doing it purposely. It's their tactic to disrupt this rally." As if this wasn't despicable enough, according to reports, his supporters even started cheering once the ambulance turned around. Not only is it a very morally unethical thing to do, it's actually illegal to block an ambulance's way. Just leaving this here so people can play a short game of spot the difference. Remember video of the crowd parting to make way for an ambulance in Hong Kong? This was at protest at Jamia These are not troublemakers looking to incite trouble,for that it you need uniform, these students are fighting for all of us@IndiasMuslims @kavita_krishnan @naukarshah pic.twitter.com/nP3t41DPlr — Kamran Shahid (@CitizenKamran) December 17, 2019 Nope, not at all.

  12. New Year, new you is a persistent dialogue that has loitered around for years now. While most men strive to stay fit and become more ambitious, some men actually like to better their fashion game. It's time you boost your wardrobe as well with doable-style resolutions that hardly require any time and will let you stay fashionable year long. This is how you be spot-on in 2020 with six game-changing style resolutions that are not cliche in any way: 1. Invest Wisely View this post on Instagram ðµI'm sensing spirits of depravity The sound of breaking glass This is the reflectionðµ Suit and Tie - @PaulSmithDesign Shirt - @EtonShirts from @CollectiveIndia Assisted by @shradhapamnani @priyanka2.0 Hair - @milankepchaki Makeup - @vickysalvi22 #KartikAaryan #PaulSmith #Eton #FooFighters #Requiem A post shared by Priyanka & Kazim (@the.vainglorious) on Oct 4, 2019 at 5:45am PDT It is very easy to look at something and buy it instantly without having to analyse your wardrobe. Give it a fight and stop the urge. Everything that you find is not necessary to become a part of your outfit. Instead of going the conventional route, take inspiration and swap your basics for something extra. It can be anything, classics or even basic T-shirts. The thing to remember here is to buy clothes that fit well and actually dovetails with your personality, rather impulsive shopping. 2. Experiment More With Your Style View this post on Instagram Checked my blood group. It was G+ ð A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Nov 29, 2019 at 2:23am PST 2018, you wore a T-shirt with ripped jeans and come 2019, you wore the combination with new sneakers. Now, that's not called experimenting. The key to a great outfit is trying several textures, patterns or silhouettes that will elevate the overall get up. As far as T-shirts and shirts go, you can lay your hands on different fabrics, eye-catching etc. Investing in pieces that bring out the new side of you is the best style resolution you can stick by this year. 3.

On days, when you just can't muster the strength to create a good outfit, rely on this method. It's a mini wardrobe that includes all the essential items that you like. One item remains constant and you can mix and match with it. This saves time and money and you can have a good wardrobe rotation for the next 30 days! 4.

This one is not mandatory but if you wish to up your game, you can definitely create a perfectly-layered outfit. The trick to layering is to stick with lighter pieces like a denim shirt or a lightweight bomber jacket. When the temps drop, try it with a neutral trenchcoat or a leather jacket. Shedding a few layers on your outfit is always a good idea and believe us, it's an instant way to make a statement. 5.

There are a slew of hacks that are easy to follow and can be performed while you are binge-watching your favourite series. 6.

  13. Education truly is an important factor in our lives. It's what shapes us, and makes us who we really are. And if we get good quality education, we have more to be grateful for! But some of our ministers happen to disagree with the quality of education we're receiving and they have their own opinions and views on how they perceive education entirely. I remember I had a friend who studied in a convent school and even though her schooling environment was quite strict and orthodox, the school emphasised on secularity quite heavily. I found that rather remarkable and engaging as kids were exposed to not just studying the Bible, but also the Bhagavad Gita, the Quran and even the Guru Granth Sahib. All festivals were celebrated equally, be it Christmas, Diwali or even Eid and I thought there was no education as fulfilling as the one my friend's school provided. But in lieu of the same, perceptions have changed and how and our authorities have actually questioned the sanctity of education provided to students by convent or missionary schools. © Twitter Union Minister of Animal Husbandry, dairy and fisheries, Giriraj Singh said that students from missionary and convent schools aren't 'sansakari' enough, as he negated the fact that they've received any form of quality education at all. According to a report by The Hindu, this is what the Union Minister said while addressing a gathering at Begusarai recently: “The students who go to missionary schools, though qualify IIT and become engineers, but when they go abroad most of them start eating beef because they do not know about our 'sanskaar' and 'sanskriti' (traditional values and culture).” If this wasn't enough, the Hindustan Times reported that Singh also made comments on how every missionary school should teach 'shlokas' (verses) from religious texts such as the Bhagvat Gita and the Hanuman Chalisa as a sure shot way to resolve the 'problem'. © BCCL Well, as shocking as this statement may sound, it's actually now a normal occurrence and expectancy from the current government. Their constant absurd statements to promote Hindu ideology has become a part and parcel of how the government actually functions. But even so, Twitter didn't take this statement sitting down and people reacted in the funniest way to what our beloved Union Minister had to say about 'quality' education in the country. Don't tell Giriraj Singh. ð Enjoy! — Suvendu Rout (@suvendu_bapu) January 4, 2020 Is Giriraj Singh paying for what Indians are eating abroad https://t.co/44ZrkhVqOP — sanjoy adhikari (@sanjoy1110) January 3, 2020 Children who study in missionary schools lack 'sanskaar' - Giriraj Singh Advani ji studied in St Patrick's High School, Karachi! — Rashid Hussain (@koolrash2002) January 3, 2020 So the biggest concern this government has is indians eating beef..this is what we have come to...the cow is holier than thou!Indians abroad eating beef, a matter of concern, says Union Minister Giriraj Singh | City - Times of India Videos https://t.co/nJofQ3UbHj — Rana (@Rana52762809) January 3, 2020 Of course it's a matter of concern.

  14. There is no dearth of policing in the country right now wherein every Tom, Dick and Harry has come to believe that their opinion is the Bible, and it gives them the right to go around shoving their stunted opinions down people's throats. Well, guess what all you pseudo-policemen, we have had enough of your verbal (and mental) diarrhea aimed at directing how we live our lives. © ANI Why this sudden surge of emotions you ask? Well get this. At a religious function being held in Begusarai recently, Union Minister and Bihar MP Giriraj Singh made a shocking comment when he said that convent-taught students who go abroad start eating beef because missionary schools don't imbibe Indian “sanskaar” in them. © BCCL Here's what he said exactly, "I say this because it has been seen that at schools run by missionaries, children from well-off families excel academically, go on to have successful careers... but when they go abroad they eat beef. Why? This is because we have not inculcated 'sanskaar' (tradition) in them.” Err, are you serious sir? © BCCL Not just that, the old man didn't stop until he suggested why teaching the Bhagavad Gita and Hanuman Chalisa should be made mandatory in private schools because obviously that's where we can find all the anti-nationals. It's appalling to watch these top ministers and public representatives make such drastic comments about what people eat and how it defines them. View the full article
  15. Reason behind why Kendall Jenner does not wish to disclose her relationshipKendall Jenner answered fans burning questions regarding her and ex Ben Simmons. According to a report in TMZ, the ex-couple were seen entering a New Year’s Eve party at Attico in downtown Philadelphia. The reports reveal that the pair partied all night with Ben's basketball player's teammates, and stayed well past 12. Kendall Jenner has become well known for her on-and-off-again relationship with Ben. Peoples reported on her relationship status back in May of 2019, confirming their split. A source revealed back then, "They're on a break. The relationship ran its course. She’s spending time with her friends and back to being in fun mode." Kendall has never been one to publicly disclose her personal life, unlike the rest of her family, and before her breakup became official, the star told Vogue Australia, "I got a glimpse of how my sisters dealt with (the attention( and it’s cool to learn from that,” she had said. “For me, a lot of things are very special and very sacred, like my friends and relationships, and I personally think that bringing things into the public makes everything so much messier,” Kendall added.
  16. Sindh Chief Minster Syed Murad Ali Shah. Photo: File/Geo.tv KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minster Syed Murad Ali Shah Tuesday extended New Year's greetings to the people of Pakistan and withdrew the ban on pillion-riding in the city. He directed the administration and the police not to harass the public and let them welcome the new year peacefully. The home department had issued a notification to ban billion-riding, carrying of fire arms, and aerial firing on new year night. On the directives of the chief minister, the home department withdrew the ban on pillion-riding. The administration and the police had blocked certain roads leading to Seaview in Karachi with containers. The chief minister also instructed the administration to remove the containers and open the roads for smooth flow of traffic and directed them to manage it by declaring some roads one-way. He told the police to not harass citizens and let people welcome the new year with new hopes, peace of mind amid cheers and traditional halla gulla [enjoyment]. Shah, however, urged people of the city, particularly the youngsters, to not behave irresponsibly, due to which the law would be forced to take its due course. The chief minister also urged people to pray for the prosperity of Pakistan, national unity and the strengthening of democracy in the country. “Pakistan is [the] most beautiful country on the planet and we all have to make it like paradise,” he said. Earlier, the chief minister presided over a meeting of Thar Coal & Energy Board at CM House and vowed to facilitate investors in Thar. “Inshallah Thar will steer the country out of darkness of load-shedding,” he said.
  17. If you're lucky to get an invite to a New Year's party today, good for you. But before you get busy chugging glasses down one after another, you should factor in the morning after hangover especially if you have somewhere to be. The NYE parties have a way of serving the worst hangovers the morning after. © Getty Images So here's a quick guide to pace your drinks well tonight: 1. Pre-Booze Prep Is Important This prep includes taking the right pills. For the uninitiated, there are pills out there that you can take that make sure that the morning after hangover doesn't hit you that hard. Besides this, you can also stock up on vitamin B and multivitamin tablets that help you turn the food into energy since this gets depleted once you start drinking. Try Himalaya Party Smart Capsules. © Himalaya 2. Keep Yourself Hydrated Being dehydrated is also one of the major reasons behind a hangover. It's always smart to pace your drinks by adding a glass of water after every other drink to fend off dehydration. Additionally, coconut water or an energy drink like Gatorade works even better. So make sure you're drinking these to keep yourself hydrated. 3. Don't Start Drinking On An Empty Stomach As a thumb rule, you should never be drinking on an empty stomach. Drinking without eating anything can pass quickly from the stomach into the small intestine, where most of it is absorbed into the bloodstream. This then intensifies all the side effects of drinking, such as your ability to think and coordinate your body movements which translates into a bad hangover the next morning. View the full article

  19. With Home Minister Amit Shah and PM Narendra Modi creating much confusion over how the Citizenship Amendment Act and National Register of Citizens are actually linked, or not linked as they claim, an old video of Amit Shah has become very relevant and popular now. This video from April clearly shows Amit Shah showing how the government will first implement CAB and then the NRC, even though now the government is claiming those two are not related after people all over the country started protesting against it. Great video, for sure. People had two big takeaways from this - first, why don't Amit Shah and PM Modi actually talk to each other and get their stories straight, and the second, making Amit Shah saying aap chronology samajhiye into a meme, the latter of which is definitely the best way to end this year and decade. While people are not busy exercising their democratic right to dissent, they're making hilarious memes involving Amit Shah.

  20. A right-arm leg spinner known for his well-disguised googly, Danish Kaneria was only the second Hindu and seventh non-Muslim overall to represent Pakistan in international cricket. He played 61 Test matches for Pakistan, and took 261 wickets at an average of 34.79. He also represented the country in 18 ODIs, taking 15 wickets with an average over 45. Such was his excellence with spin bowling that Kaneria still holds the record for most Test wickets by any Pakistani spinner. He is fourth on the list of bowlers with most Test wickets for Pakistan, only behind fast bowlers like Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Imran Khan. He took 15 five-wicket hauls and took ten wickets or more in a match on two different occasions in the longest version of the game. © Reuters But, despite claiming 276 international wickets, more than 1000 first-class caps and ending his career as the highest wicket-taking spinner for Pakistan, Kaneria, sadly, will always be remembered more as the cricketer who was banned for life by the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) after being found guilty of corruption in the infamous 2009 spot-fixing case. Playing for Essex, during the 2009 Pro40 match against Durham, Kaneria and his teammate Mervyn Westfield were found to have underperformed, instigating an ECB probe which eventually found the duo guilty. As Westfield pleaded guilty in January 2012, the verdict on Kaneria was passed by a disciplinary panel in June, later that year, thus practically ending his career. Since then, Kaneria has been looked down upon as an outcast and left to fend for himself by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Well, Kaneria probably deserved it. After all, there is zero tolerance for malpractices in cricket which probably explains PCB's stance towards him. But, what's hard to fathom are the dual-standards of the PCB. © Reuters Kaneria isn't the first Pakistani cricketer to have indulged in spot-fixing. We all know Mohammad Amir's role in the 2010 spot-fixing scandal where he allegedly took a bribe from a bookie to underperform in a Test match between Pakistan and England at Lord's. He was handed a five-year ban due to his juvenile age. But, in 2015, Amir was allowed to make his domestic comeback despite his original ban still in progress. And, a year later, he was back in the national team. Amir is not the only one to be aided by the PCB here. On 30th August 2017, Sharjeel Khan was banned for five years from all forms of cricket after being found guilty on five counts in violation of the PCB's anti-corruption code. Despite his malpractices during the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in 2017, Sharjeel was given the minimum punishment of all charges and two-and-a-half years out of the five-year sentence were suspended. Earlier this month, Sharjeel even went on to deliver a lecture to his Pakistan teammates on the PCB's anti-corruption code as part of his rehabilitation program ahead of their 1st Test against Sri Lanka. Now, he is set to mark his return to domestic cricket and the Pakistan Super League (PSL). © Reuters So, the biggest question that comes to the fore is if PCB can help rehabilitate cricketers like Amir and Sharjeel who were found guilty of corrupt practices, why was Kaneria overlooked? Was it because Kaneria is a Hindu? Well, Shoaib Akhtar's recent revelation surely hints at that. "Captain would raise eyebrows about him eating with us or taking the food from the same table. I told him that you could be the captain but your conduct is despicable. This guy (Kaneria) is chalking up so many wickets to win matches for us and you're treating him like this," Akhtar revealed on a cricket show titled Game on Hai. Hindus even at good position like national cricket team are treated badly in Pakistan then think about the poor ones. Respect for @shoaib100mph for exposing Pakistan's Hindu hatred pic.twitter.com/IPUTngA0yO — Amit Kumar Sindhi ð®ð³ (@AMIT_GUJJU) December 26, 2019 "No one was giving Danish any credit for his exceptional performance. That was totally uncalled for. He won us the Test series against England (in 2005). He snared all the top-order batsmen. I used to get livid when anyone was discriminated (against) on the basis of region or religion. A Hindu born in Pakistan is entitled to represent his country. When that Hindu (Kaneria) won us the Test series against England (in 2005), I chided my teammates for mistreating him," Akhtar added. Following Akhtar's explosive revelations, Kaneria, in a statement, also claimed that over time he has approached many individuals in Pakistan and around the world to resolve his issues, only to receive no help whatsoever, even when the "issues of many (other) cricketers of Pakistan have been resolved". "My life is not in good shape and I approached many individuals in Pakistan and around the world to resolve my issues. Yet, I have not received any help. Issues of many cricketers of Pakistan have been resolved though. I gave everything possible for Pakistan as a cricketer and I am very proud of it. And in the hour of need I am positive that the people of Pakistan will help," Kaneria was quoted as saying by TOI. © Reuters Left with few options at his disposal, Kaneria also delivered a heartfelt plea to Pakistan PM Imran Khan. "I need support from all legendary players of Pakistan including Honourable Prime Minister Imran Khan, cricket administrators of Pakistan and other countries to get me out of the mess. Please come forward and help me out," he added. Kaneria also went on to thank Akhtar, who has been vocal on different issues, for coming forward and revealing his ordeal. "Today, I saw the TV interview of the legendary bowler Shoaib Akhtar. I personally thank him for telling the truth to the world. At the same time, I am thankful to all great players who supported me wholeheartedly as a cricketer. Also thankful to media, genuine cricket administrators, and citizens of Pakistan who supported me regardless of my religious affiliation," he said. "There were certain elements in the society who opposed. However, their opposition could not sustain against the people who loved me. I always remained positive in life and ignored such opposition," Kaneria concluded. © Reuters In the modern version of the game, where the International Cricket Council (ICC) has been adamant on curing the gentleman's game of malpractices, spot-fixing and other demons which bring disrepute to the sport clearly have no place here. But, branding a fallen star an outcast and discarding his contributions over the years is not the way forward. And, rather than discriminating on the basis of religious affiliations, the PCB, and probably other cricket boards around the world, need to focus on educating, rehabilitating and charting a roadmap for such tainted cricketers so as to give them a chance to redeem themselves - something Kaneria has been denied over the years.

  21. NAB chairman — File photoISLAMABAD: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal said on Wednesday that the probe authority operates on the basis of its policy and is not affiliated with any political party. In a statement, Iqbal said that the NAB functions only for the sake of Pakistan, working against dishonest elements and fugitives. He said that the NAB’s performance has been lauded by the national and international elements. “In the past 27 months, the authority has recovered Rs153 billion from dishonest elements and submitted to the national exchequer. Apart from arresting 630 suspects, around 600 corruption references have been registered in accountability courts,” said the NAB chairman. Following the recent arrest of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Ahsan Iqbal in relation to Narowal Sports City case, opposition parties had accused the NAB of collusion with ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

  22. While Bollywood's blatant silence has made the country wonder if the industry is actually spineless, fortunately, some people from the entertainment industry who've outrightly spoken up against the implementation of the NRC and the CAA, and we're really gald they have. Popular rapper and music composer Raftaar has spoken up and taken a stand against the imposition of the NRC and the CAA. At his concert recently, he spoke to his audience about it and received a big cheer from everyone in the crowd. He made a statement before his performance, which will be remembered for a long time to come. Twitter At the concert, Raftaar introduced his friend Arshad to the crowd and said "Before starting, I want to make something seriously clear, whether my career goes on tomorrow or it doesn't I am not bothered, I have earned enough so that I don't die of hunger. This man's name is Arshad, he takes care of me to the extent that nobody can even push me. If anyone talks about asking him to leave this country, I am ready to take a bullet for it *expletive*.” As the crowd cheered the singer, he added “Whether they are Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, or Muslims, they are all our brothers, I will not let anyone be taken out of the country. After this, I do not care what happens to my career.” Twitter/Quint With these powerful words Raftaar gave his performance while the crowd cheered him on. Raftaar, originally named Dilin Nair, was formerly a member of the urban music group Mafia Mundeer formed by Yo Yo Honey Singh. He's amongst the few artists who have openly spoken up against the CAA act. While everyone has the right to an opinion, giving an opinion is very important, especially if you're a famous personality, since a lot of people look up to what famous people think, say and feel. Bollywood's unfathomable silence is something the country really doesn't need right now, when the conditions are unfavourable all around. What it truly needs are more people like Raftaar, who will voluntarily and involuntarily give an opinion, knowing and understanding the issue at hand and how people truly feel about it.

  23. It is Christmas eve and while most of us are probably stuck at work today and are only ogling at Instagram pictures of friends and families vacationing somewhere snowy, the night is going to be long and lonely for you (doesn't help that the yuletide spirit is already in the air). So here are seven movie recommendations for binge watching holiday movies tonight in bed: 1. Home Alone I don't even need to explain and mention why one can or should watch this Christmas classic because, chances are, some of us will browse every streaming service and end up watching this all over again. 2. The Grinch If the holiday cheer is not catching up with you and you feel grumpy for reasons best known to you, then this should be a good watch for you. A Grinch who is annoyed with the festivity decides to team up with his dog to ruin it for everyone around him. 3. The Holiday In case you are having a movie date tonight, then this can be a good holiday movie pick for you. Two women swap their homes for a holiday and a small break turns around their whole lives for them. 4. A Christmas Carol We have read it, we have heard it, we have enacted it back in school as well. Watch with the Scrooge of your life and with the multiple versions available online, pick your favourite and let it serve as a reminder for you see the good in others this Christmas. 5. The Christmas Chronicles This is a cute story of two siblings who decide to not ask for a gift but actually just capture Santa Claus himself. After drama follows, they decide to be his elves and save Christmas for the whole town. 6. The Princess Switch Turns out that Vanessa Hudgens loves producing and starring in Christmas movies and we aren't complaining at all. This story is a very 'feel good' movie which follows two women who are basically twins. One is a baker and one is a princess and when they end up in the same town, they decide to swap their lives and end up living happily. 7. Holiday In The Wild This is a romantic movie which follows Kate, a woman who decides to take a trip to South Africa after her marriage ends on a bad note. She not only meets the new version of herself but also ends up meeting a cute pilot named Derek. Proof that never-ending is also a new beginning in disguise. View the full article
  24. As Nick Cannon released another diss track taking aim at Slim Shady, Eminem took to Twitter but he didn’t reply to the Wild 'n Out host. Ever since Eminem slammed Cannon in ‘Lord Above’ that featured Fat Joe and Andre 3000 as well, the comedian has hit out at Slim Shady in a couple of tracks. His latest diss track, “Invitation: Canceled” was the one in which he played old recordings of Eminem in which the white rapper made insulting comments about African-American women from back in the day. In the song, Cannon calls Eminem the ‘KKK of our generation’. Fans were expecting a scathing response from the Detroit MC. However, Mr Mathers chose to ignore Cannon and instead tweeted at Andre 3000. In a podcast with producer Rick Rubin, Andre 3000 revealed how he and Eminem nerded out on vintage HipHop. The Outkast musician spoke about how he and Slim Shady went back-and-forth with each other on Bay Area collective Hieroglyphics. “Me and Eminem, we sat on the phone for about an hour talking about the Hieroglyphics crew,” he continued. “We were trading their lyrics on the phone like, ‘Do you remember, man?’ Andre had said on the podcast. Turns out, Slim was listening and he tweeted some lyrics of a song at Andre. “If I had to grip my pad the riffs I'd grab would rip and stab, the kids that sad, the s*** that's drab and flavorless...” you’re up, André!” he tweeted. While this may not be the tweet fans were expecting from the rapper who was named the ‘Artist of the Decade’ in December 2009 for selling the most number of records from 2000-2010, we know that the Detroit MC seldom backs down from a fight. Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly (MGK) went toe-to-toe after the former dissed the latter in his Kamikaze song ‘Not Alike’. MGK responded with ‘Rap Devil’ a couple of days later which won praise from critics and for the first time, hip hop enthusiasts thought Eminem was in a pickle. However, Eminem responded two weeks later with ‘Killshot’ which became the fastest song to hit a million pageviews on YouTube, hitting a million in just 8 hours, beating the previous records from Pusha T's "The Story of Adidon", gaining a million in 41 hours and Childish Gambino's "This Is America", hitting it in 45 hours. The internet remains split over whether Eminem won that battle or did MGK get the best of the hip hop legend. Will we ever see the Detroit native respond to Cannon’s diss tracks? Or will Eminem ignore him completely? Only time will tell.
  25. Sri Lankan skipper Dimuth Karunaratne. Photo: Pakistan Cricket Board TwitterKARACHI: Sri Lankan skipper Dimuth Karunaratne says he now regrets not coming to Pakistan earlier for the one-day international (ODI) and T20Is series in October. Speaking to media in Karachi ahead of his side’s second Test against Pakistan, Karunaratne said that visiting Pakistan for the series has changed his perception about the country. “Yeah, now I regret that,” said Karunaratne referring to his earlier decision of not touring Pakistan in September/October.“I think at that time it was hard decision to take because I never had been in Pakistan and I had heard things on the news and on social media which were not good. But once the guys who came here gave us a really good feedback, we all seniors decided to visit Pakistan and play the Test series,” he shared. Now that we are here, I feel good. I feel that I should have come and play ODIs,” the 31-year-old said. He also appreciated the efforts by the Pakistani security officials, who Karunaratne said made the visitors feel one hundred per cent safe. “I can say that I feel really safe here. The security guys are giving more than one hundred per cent and that is why we are feeling very good. We also went out for dinner and we enjoyed. My team and I feel safe here and I can say that Pakistan is now safe for the cricket. I can’t tell other teams but I can surely give my opinion,” he added.When asked about any changes for the Islanders for the team tomorrow, the Sri Lankan captain confirmed that his side will go with at least one change in the second Test. He, however, added that his side will wait till the morning to make a final call on the playing XI for the second Test“We will definitely have one change, Kasun Rajitha will not play tomorrow, we have another pacer in place of him,” he confirmed.“But we haven’t decided on our final XI yet, we will have a look at wicket tomorrow and see how things are in the morning what they are going to do with wickets, weather they leave the grass or not. I feel it will have turn on later on, that’s why we are waiting what curator is going to do tomorrow,” he shared. Karunaratne added that players do not have much idea about the conditions of Karachi and the home team will surely have an advantage but if his players can apply right thing on right time then it will be a good contest between the two teams.He added that ICC Test Championship has made Test cricket more competitive.“We used to play home and away series previously but it wasn’t that much exciting but now competition is everywhere. You have to play a number of matches and you’ve to dominate in all games and all conditions to stay on top. I personally like the way ICC Championship has shaped up the Test championship,” he said.“India is currently on top, Australia is following. We have to do well to stay on top in championship as well and we are looking forward to get maximum points,” Karunaratne added.
