  1. As much as we would like to believe and announce that our furry friends are pure bundles of joy and angels, the truth is that sometimes they can be absolute jerks and totally unapologetic about it. Particularly, our feline friends. Living with cats under the same roof is one of the hardest things in the world, and if anyone tells you otherwise, then they've probably never lived with one. On top of it, if your cat has a resting bitch face 24x7, gives you death stares while lurking in some dark corner of the room at 3 in the night, then it's a living nightmare. But, turns out no matter how bad you think your pet is, she or he is clearly not a match in front of the 'world's worst cat', who has recently been put up for adoption and her bio is as savage and honest as it can get. Perdita, a 4-year-old foul-tempered cat, has been labelled as the 'world's worst cat' by the people at Mitchell County Animal Rescue in North Carolina and they have their own reasons to do so. They have been taking care of Perdita, ever since she lost her owner. Initially, they thought she was sick, but turns out she's "just a jerk". And Perdita's vet vouches for that. So they decided to post a brutally honest adoption advertisement on their page, because 'honesty is the best policy'. The advertisement reads, "Perdita, we thought she was sick, turns out sheâs just a jerk" for the world's worst cat who has now become 'world's most loved and famous cat'. The organisation further wrote, "Meet Perdita, not for the faint of heart. LIKES: staring into your soul until you feel as if you may never be cheerful again; the song Cat Scratch Fever, the movie Pet Cemetery (Church is her hero), jump scares (her specialty), lurking in dark corners, being queen of her domicile, fooling shelter staff into thinking she's sick (vet agrees...she's just a jerk)." They even mentioned her dislikes, "the color pink, kittens (yuk they are so chipper), dogs, children, the Dixie Chicks, Disney movies, Christmas and last but NOT least...HUGS. She's single and ready to be socially awkward with a socially awkward human who understands personal space." While, they thought it's better to be honest, even if they don't find any new owners, turns out people not only loved the ad but are also eager to take Perdita home. Ever since the ad was posted, Perdita has now become the world's most loved and famous cat and has already received over 115 applications for adoption. Wow! Looks like there's some tough competition for other cats out there, because almost everyone is now bowing down to Queen Perdita. View the full article
  2. If you're a Game of Thrones fan and are still bitter about how things ended in the final season, there's a 'Stark' ray of hope for you guys. Yes, it's been a while since the series ended but taking personal offence on how one of the best Tele series ended is absolutely fair, we think. A petition was doing the rounds after the season ended to remake the series but this piece of information we're about to give you has nothing to do with the petition, per se. In an interview with a German newspaper called Welt, the author of the books George RR Martin said that the television ending isn't the full story and that he is yet to give a befitting ending to it. How's that to lift your weekend blues? Martin shed light on how he would like to finish his two books in the series he's been writing since the 1970s- The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring and eventually give the series the true ending it deserves. Well, we're actually glad Martin is finally finishing his long-lasting project as well. © HBO "People know an endingâbut not the ending. The makers of the TV show had overtaken me, which I didn't expect." Martin surprisingly revealed. Although to our disappointment he didn't reveal how the series would eventually end, but he did say season eight was ânot completely faithful,â and we absolutely agree! Season eight was a bit rushed with the character arcs that took years to develop only to miserably fail at delivering their real stories and eventual ends. In fact, in a post on his blog after the Game of Thrones finale aired, Martin wrote about his intentions to conclude character journeys that the show wasnât able to address. âI am working in a very different medium than David and Dan, never forget. They had six hours for this final season. I expect these last two books of mine will fill 3000 manuscript pages between them before Iâm done⦠and if more pages and chapters and scenes are needed, Iâll add them. And of course, the butterfly effect will be at work as well; those of you who follow this Not A Blog will know that Iâve been talking about that since season one. There are characters who never made it onto the screen at all, and others who died in the show but still live in the books⦠so if nothing else, the readers will learn what happened to Jeyne Poole, Lady Stoneheart, Penny and her pig, Skahaz Shavepate, Arianne Martell, Darkstar, Victarion Greyjoy, Ser Garlan the Gallant, Aegon VI, and a myriad of other characters both great and small that viewers of the show never had the chance to meet. And yes, there will be unicorns⦠of a sortâ¦â © Twitter Working on the books and finishing them without the pressure of the television series airing at the same time might actually be a big relief for a writer and he can focus more on the real plot lines and the eventual twists each character goes through in the story. According to him, the show completely outpaced him and as he struggled to work through the oppressive nature and pressure of writing these books when the show was in the making. "Every day I sat down to write and even if I had a good day - and a good day for me is three or four pages - I'd feel terrible because I'd be thinking: 'My God, I have to finish the book. I've only written four pages when I should have written 40. But having the show finish is freeing because I'm at my own pace now. I have good days and I have bad days and the stress is far less, although it's still there." Martin said. © Twitter While you will definitely get to read the books, Martin has confirmed that the long-awaited Game of Thrones movies is not in the pipeline anymore and you can thank HBO for that. "At this point in time, it wouldnât be for me to decide, because HBO controls the film rights for Game of Thrones. David Benioff and D.B. Weiss actually wanted to end the saga after the seventh season with three big movies⦠The executives said, 'We produce TV shows, we are not in the cinema business" Martin added. © Twitter So, there you go. Finally, a closure to all the die-hard GoT fans who probably have unanswered questions, which in all probability, will be answered in Martin's upcoming books, finally! View the full article
  3. It's a popular misconception that dogs of exotic breeds are more useful for army and police training than desi dogs can ever be. That's why you'll see maximum labradors, German shepherds and dobermans recruited in the army or police services. But let's not forget, Indie dogs are known for their endurance and strength too, since they live on the streets. Slowly and steadily, both the army and the police are beginning to realise this and are being more inclusive where street dogs are concerned. These desi stray dogs have an incredible protective instinct, good sight and smell abilities and they adapt well in any given environment, since they've been doing so for years on the streets. © Twitter That is why the Bengaluru Police has decided to 'recruit' street dogs and train them to be watchdogs, thatâll protect the people and society, by accompanying the police during night patrols! The South division of Bengaluru Police has taken over this initiative since they have 17 police stations under them. The street dogs outside the police stations are taken care of and fed, so that they're in good shape for their training sessions, which will start soon. âThere are at least about 50-60 dogs in total who are mostly outside the police stations wandering around. Many residents come and feed them and take care of them. Now, we want to do our bit by doing the same,â said the Deputy Commissioner of Police in an interview with New Indian Express. The training will be given by professionals who'll first teach the dogs to obey simple commands like 'sit', 'stay' and 'jump'. They will be given further intensive training on how to recognise and be around people at police stations or in general and also to recognise criminals or miscreants. âThe police go on night patrols. They can take these dogs with them, which will drive in a sense of fear among miscreants,â the DC further added. © Twitter The dogs are doing well so far. There are two veterinarians who're vaccinating the dogs, while people from local animal welfare groups are coming and taking care of them. There are also kennels that are being made for these street dogs. While most of them will be trained for night patrols, some will also be recruited into dog squads later. âWhen the public sees that police are taking care of stray dogs, they too will come forward to adopt strays,â said Priya Chetty Rajagopal, a local animal lover, in an interview with a popular publication. © Twitter Apart from giving them a better life and recognising their impeccable skills, this process will also curb the population of street dogs, which is constantly at stake. While some localities poison street dogs, others neuter or spay them so they don't breed further. But they're often referred to as 'nuisance', as they're always territorial in groups, especially if the group is big. If police starts recruiting these dogs, the population will be controlled and they won't be terrorised out of their spaces. We think this is a brilliant initiative by the Bengaluru police and while âchowkidarsâ in other cities use street dogs to keep them company at night, we need them to be more active, used to their best potential, in every other city as well!

  4. Every fashion label longs for that one genius that would set the tone that their legacy takes. For Chanel and Fendi, it was the legendary mastermind, Karl Lagerfield. For Dolce & Gabbana, it was Stefano Gabbana. For YSL, it was Tom Ford. And it seems for the upcoming decade at least, it will be Alessandro Michele for Gucci. © Reuters Having spent a better part of the decade with Gucci in some role or the other, Alessandro's vision to take Gucci towards an environment that is even more inclusive of diversity and varying creativity, has resulted in some rather spectacular moments, with the gender-fluid or gender-neutral path that they have elected to go for, being one of them. However, it hasn't been a completely smooth sailing for them. © Reuters It's been five years since Alessandro took the helm of the Italian luxury brand. Yes, a few guffaws and quite a few faux pas were made. Remember, the controversial sweater, the one with a literal monkey face, that Gucci put up? Or the fact that some of their pieces were inspired by straight jackets, in 2019, a year that saw a very fervourous conversation around mental health, especially considering how Todd Phillips' Joker, released just a month after their guffaw, dealt with? © Reuters All said and done, if there has been one thing that the Florentine ateliers of Gucci have pushed out time and again, it is perspective. Gender fluid or androgynous fashion has been a theme that many fashion houses have dabbled with. In fact, ever since Alessandro took over Gucci, back in 2015, Gucci has often showcased most of their collections in fashion shows, by using cross-dressing as a statement-making tool. Case in point would be their Fall-Winter collection back in 2015. The collection, even though it dealt with a subject that was considered much more tabooed, was well thought out and indeed tastefully done. The pieces that were shown, were indeed androgynous and seemed to push the proverbial envelope. © Reuters Cut to 2020, and we see a remarked difference in the approach. Individually, the pieces that were showcased were spectacular and indeed statement pieces unto themselves, something that people expect from Gucci and Alessandro at this point. What did come across as a little jarring would be the manner in which they were showcased. What was disconcerting was the fact that there were instances where some of the ensembles seemed as if they had nothing to do with androgynous fashion, or gender-fluid fashion for that matter, but were an attempt to create a spectacle. © Gucci © Gucci © Gucci © Gucci No wonder post the Milan Show, people were genuinely left wondering if 'androgynous fashion' and 'gender-fluid' fashion have been reduced to fancy labels to stay woke? © Gucci The sad truth is, toxic masculinity, and the perception of emasculation that all things feminine represent, is a problem, and nowhere else it is as clearly put on display as it has been in clothes and fashion, even though this dichotomy at times falls flat on its face in this sphere? As sad as it may be, there still is a long way to go for this duality to be put to rest, and this binary that we have in fashion will become redundant. Is it a surprise then, that almost all major fashion houses, be it Prada, Dior, and Burberry have massively amped up their product range, as well as the production of luxury menswear items? Luxury Menswear, after all, is an exponentially growing segment of the market. © Gucci With that said, whether Gucci is indeed being esoteric or is it just another example of a fashion label that is using these terms for coming across as woke, for the sake of being woke; Gucci's endeavours in the past have pushed the envelope continuously and tried to be the harbingers of a society that is androgynous. © Gucci Just take a look at the Lyst Index, a quarterly ranking of the 'It' brands and products in fashion, and you'll see that in the last eight quarters, Gucci has always been in the top three spots, and held the lead for a considerably long time. Since 2018, specifically, Gucci has been the hottest brand in fashion and was only deposed of its thrown by Off White & Balenciaga in the 3rd quarter of 2019. © Gucci We're sure that with this collection, Gucci surely is going to jump to the top yet again. Because whatever they seem to be doing, it seems they know what works for them. All said and done, the pieces they make, like we said, are indeed statement worthy. © Gucci So come what may, people, men and women alike, are still going to flock to Gucci stores all around the world, for their washed-out baggy denim jeans, and boxy wool suits, and their murses. People who can afford them, that is. Or at the very least, they will crop up in some form or the other in fast fashion outlets like Zara, or H&M, where they will be flying off of the shelves. © Gucci The question remains though, where does that leave Gucci in this scenario, where there is a clear distinction between the runway and the racks? Is it going to cater to the esoteric runway, the similar and familiarity that people expect from the rack, or does the answer lie somewhere in between? That remains to be seen. View the full article
  5. After playing professional football for some major football clubs such as Inter Milan and Galatasaray between 1990s and the 2000s, Hakan Sukur decided to hang up his boots and try his hand at politics in Turkey, his homeland. Little did he know that that decision would change his family's and his lives forever and not for the better. © Reuters The former Blackburn Rovers striker became a part of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey in 2011 but had to leave in 2015 due to allegations of attempting to overturn the government by force. According to a German outlet Welt am Sonntag, the footballer was forced to leave the country after he was allegedly found to be a part of a coup. "I have nothing left, Erdogan took everything: my right to liberty, freedom of expression and right to work," he said in the interview, explaining how Turkish President Erdogan ousted him from the nation after issuing an arrest warrant against his name for the alleged coup. "Nobody seems able to explain what my role in this coup was supposed to be. I never did anything illegal, I am not a traitor or a terrorist. I might be an enemy [of] this government, but not the state or the Turkish nation. I love my country. After the split with Erdogan, I started to receive threats. My wife's shop was attacked, my children were harassed, my father put in prison and all my assets confiscated. So I moved to the United States, initially running a cafe in California, but strange people kept coming into the bar. Now I drive for Uber and I sell books," he said. "I have nothing left, Erdogan took everything: my right to liberty, freedom of expression and right to work"@hakansukur is Turkey's greatest ever goalscorer and once one of Europe's most prolific strikers. A legend. He is an Uber driver now because he chose to live with dignity pic.twitter.com/5M2X3Xarz6 — Barbarossa (@BarbarossaKaya) January 15, 2020 Not too long ago, Sukur also made headlines for calling out the state-controlled media in an interview with The New York Times: “It's my country; I love my people, even though their ideas about me are distorted by controlled media,” Sukur said. “Maybe in the future we will go there and visit.” “I would have lived a very good life and become a minister if I had played the game accordingly, if I did what they say,” Sukur said. “But now I am selling coffee.” “There is not always darkness,” Sukur said. “I believe one day the light will return. Darkness doesn't last forever,” he said in 2018. Two years later, Sukur is far from making it back home and continues to drive a taxi in Palo Alto, California. View the full article
  6. In another exciting news, the Sardar Vallabhai Patel statue in Gujarat also called the Statue of Unity has now made it to the Shangai Cooperation Organisation's '8 Wonders of SCO' list. Taking to Twitter, India's Foreign Minister S Jaishankar recently wrote, “Appreciated the #SCO's efforts to promote tourism among member states. The “8 Wonders of SCO”, which includes the #StatueofUnity , will surely serve as an inspiration.” Appreciated the #SCO's efforts to promote tourism among member states. The “8 Wonders of SCO”, which includes the #StatueofUnity , will surely serve as an inspiration. pic.twitter.com/nmTbz6qIFg — Dr. S.

Reviewed the progress in our cooperation as India prepares to take up the responsibility of chairing the Council of #SCO Heads of Government.” The statue is the world's tallest statue and is around 597 feet tall. According to wikipedia, it rises 54 metres (177 ft) higher than the previous record holder, the Spring Temple Buddha in China's Henan province. It was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on October 31, 2018 on Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel's 143rd birth anniversary. Also, the statue was built for Rs 3000 crore and has now become one of the most visited tourist destinations in the country.

  7. Ever since Xiaomi's POCO F1 became a huge hit, people have been flooding Xiaomi with questions about the next POCO phone. Unfortunately, there was a lot of evidence suggesting that Xiaomi has ditched the brand and we won't be seeing any new phone from POCO. In fact, people had lost all their hopes when Xiaomi launched the Redmi K20 and the K20 Pro in India. There was no way Xiaomi was going to compete with their own device. But now, it's a new year, so we're pretty positive about the POCO F2. And thankfully, we have some evidence suggesting that the POCO F2 is happening after all. Yes, we now have some solid evidence that there could be a POCO F2 in 2020. As spotted by a Twitter user who goes by the handle @_the_tech_guy, Xiaomi has filed a trademark application for a device named POCO F2. Yes, check it out - #Xiaomi files trademark application for POCO F2 So the POCO series exists and POCO F2 is coming soon .....#xiaomi #pocoPhone #POCOF2 pic.twitter.com/3JDwplv9IJ — _the_tech_guy (@_the_tech_guy) January 11, 2020 The document is a clear indication that the successor is coming. And a similar trademark for "POCO" showed up right before the launch of POCO F1 as well, so we think we're very close to the launch. If it's really happening, then we think the phone will come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoC. However, it's worth making a note that the Snapdragon 865 is 5G chipset, which means the POCO F2 could be significantly expensive. But we're not sure about that just yet. The brand could very well launch the phone with a different chipset. © Akshay Bhalla/ MensXP Sadly, that's all we know about this phone currently. We hope to learn more about it very soon, so keep your eyes peeled for more details. View the full article
  8. Razer is known for bringing some of the best products at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) every year. Some of their prototype devices like crazy triple-screen laptops have stolen the show previously. So, we were super excited to see what the company brings to the table this year. Since mobile gaming has become so popular in 2019 and it's only expected to grow even more in 2020, it looks like Razer decided to do something for the mobile gaming community. They showcased something called the Razer Kishi gamepad, which is one of the best gamepad we've ever seen for mobile phones. Here, check it out - One of the best things about the controller is that it connects to the phone directly via the charging ports instead of a Bluetooth connection. It's perfect for low-latency gaming, something which is very crucial for competitive gaming. And since the gamepad uses the port, Razer has included a passthrough charging at the bottom right side. That way, you won't have to worry about running out of battery while hitting your targets. This is unique to this gamepad and not a lot of controllers offer that. © Razer Kishi also comes with a "universal fit", thanks to its gamevice belt on the back. With the help of that, it can fit in both small and XL-sized phones very easily. So, let's just say that any new phone with a USB-Type C or a lightning port will work with the Kishi controller. As for the buttons, the controller has the standard shoulder buttons, one D-Pad and four regular buttons basic controls. It's perfect for both current mobile games as well as cloud gaming. Cloud gaming, for those of you who don't know, is said to be on the rise and it looks like we'll soon be able to play our standard console games on our mobile phones. © YouTube/ Engadget So, imagine racing in Forza Horizon 4 or taking down enemies in Gears 5. Yes, it's going to be awesome. We didn't get a chance to play with the controller just yet, but we just can't wait to get our hands on it and play the games. Unlike Razer's laptops and phones, most peripherals make their way to India, so we think the new Kishi controller will also be available soon in the country. We're not sure about the pricing yet, but it should be priced at around $100, which is roughly around Rs. 7,000. View the full article
  9. Life can be so unpredictable, and it takes personal experiences to really believe that. So when Swiggy delivery boy Vishal went about taking care of his deliveries, little did he know that one particular delivery to this young man named Nikhil George will change his life and how. Vishal had gone to hand over the delivery to Nikhil when the two started chatting. This eventually led to an exchange that helped the world discover a talented artist who is a “painter by profession and a delivery boy by compulsion”. This is how things went down: This is Vishal. He delivered my Swiggy order today. He's an artist and he is looking for work. Do let me know if you would like to get a painting/wall art commissioned. I can put you in touch with him. Do spread the word and help him out! pic.twitter.com/3HCMaYSuRx — nikhiilist (@nikhiilist) January 6, 2020 No sooner did Nikhil post this update that it caught people's attention on Twitter. People couldn't stop praising Vishal's talent and requests for projects and portraits began pouring in. Bollywood actor-director Pooja Bhatt was one of those who wanted to get in touch with Vishal to get portraits created. Yes please! ð how does one connect with him? — Pooja Bhatt (@PoojaB1972) January 7, 2020 Vishal had joined Swiggy in 2018 to financially support himself and works with the food delivery company on a part-time basis while sparing a large chunk of his day to explore his passion for painting. If he is willing to come to Malda, which we will pay for, we are looking for an artist to paint an Aaganwadi Centre here. Might not get paid as much but would be great exposure for his work. — Naveen Kumar Chandra, IAS (@n_k_chandra) January 7, 2020 According to a HT report, Vishal's Instagram post said, “Hello everybody, I am Vishal. I am a painter by profession and a delivery boy by compulsion. Would love to earn my daily bread thru' my hobby and passion.” He also added that one of his friends helped him create the Instagram account showcase his work and gain more exposure. Hey Nikhil, thank you for taking the time to bring this to our attention ð Talent should always be shared, appreciated and supported. It is great to know that such a talented artist is among us and we would want to do everything possible (cont) https://t.co/0Ch5otPksJ — Swiggy Cares (@SwiggyCares) January 7, 2020 As for Nikhil, this is what he had to say to HT, “After delivering the order, he told me that he's an artist and asked me if I needed any paintings done. I asked him to show me his work. I was impressed. I never expected it to get the response that it did. My phone started buzzing non-stop.” View the full article
  10. There's something about robots that just screams creepy to me. I've seen a lot of robots over the years, both in real-life and online while covering tech, but I've been sane with the idea of having robots around me, let alone own one. But at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this year, one particular robot really caught my attention. I am talking about 'Jennie', a robot labrador that's been stealing hearts at on the show floor this year. No seriously, this one's not like other robots. Just look at her: via GIPHY Yes, she deserves all the attention, right? Is she a toy? Yeah, maybe you can say that, but I'd say she is just as real as fur buddy you have at home. You can see Jennie at a corner of CES this year, where's she's waiting with her father to meet all the visitors. Jennie is not just any other robot. She's made to interact with humans the same way a real dog would. She'll respond to being stroked and petted and she also wags her tail at being called, which is a sight to behold. © CNET Jennie is covered with synthetic fur and she's fitted with 50 sensors that can feel how softly or vigorously you're interacting with her. She has in-built microphones to listen to when someone's calling her. According to the folks over at Cnet, who got to spend some time with Jennie, she moves her head gently when she's patted. But if you give her more fuss, she'll get more excited and wag her tail. Jennie can also move her ears, eyebrows and nose, thanks to the built-in motors in her face. Stevens, who's the creator of the dog, says Jennie was designed to be a lap dog. She was never meant to be mobile, but she can cover a very small distance and do pretty much anything and everything else. She can even bark, whine, yip and howl. I am totally sold! In case you're interested in buying your very own Jennie, then you can do so by pre-ordering her for $440. She wasn't designed to be a toy. Instead, she was made for elders for therapy. But hey, you don't really need a reason to bring home such a cute fur buddy, do you? Source: CNET View the full article
  11. Deepika Padukone's surprising presence at the protest by the JNU students caused a national uproar within minutes. And why not? A mainstream Bollywood superstar suddenly appearing at a protest over a very controversial issue was fodder enough for intense debates. As expected, she was showered with praise and admiration for taking such a 'bold' step, but at the same time, she was also attacked for 'promoting' her latest movie, Chhapaak. But another issue cropped up out of nowhere, where a lot of Twitter users started accusing the makers of 'changing the religion' of the attacker in the movie. By now, everyone is familiar with the story of Laxmi Aggarwal, an acid attack survivor. Her attacker's name was Nadeem Khan, however, the makers of Chhapaak were accused of changing his name to a Hindu one, Rajesh, basically bringing the religion of the culprit into the spotlight. Well, turns out, these allegations are completely false and baseless. We got to review the movie yesterday and the name of the attacker in the movie was originally supposed to be Nadeem and was later changed to Basheer Khan. Technically, people didn't even bother to check the facts before trending several hashtags like #NaeemKhan and #Rajesh to #NameItLikeBollywood on Twitter. Here are a few tweets on the same: Laxmi Agarwal faced a jihadi Acid attack in 2005 in New Delhi as she had refused to marry #NadeemKhan. Deepika Padukone's making money with movie #Chapaak on Laxmi hardly talks about Nadeem Khan. Instead they changed name to Rajesh.#boycottchhapaak#IndianSecularism — Suman Kaul Sharmað®ð³ HINDU #Official (@SumanSh58123278) January 8, 2020 His name was #NadeemKhan who threw acid on #LaxmiAgarwal 's face, but you changed the name only to dishonour #Hinduism, this is your secularism.@deepikapaukone #Boycott_Chhapaak pic.twitter.com/Ljzq5ZFx4J — Lokendra Nath (@NathLokendra56) January 9, 2020 Name of the guy who attacked Laxmi Aggarwal with acid was #nadeemkhan.

For more information on the same, you should first watch the movie. Chhapaak will finally hit the screens tomorrow and will clash with Ajay Devgn's much-talked-about period drama Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. Planning to catch a screening?

It shares the fourth spot with Somalia. Pakistani passport holders still enjoy visa-free access to 32 countries. Japan retained the top spot as the world's most powerful passport. The Asian nation has come out on top in the index, which is revised quarterly, for the third time in a row.

  13. If 'travelling' or anything along the lines of exploration and adventure happens to be on your list of New Year's resolutions in 2020, you ought to start packing your bags ASAP, because our beautiful southern neighbour, Sri Lanka is feeling too generous and has put into place a scheme that will allow Indians to get visa on arrival free of cost! © Twitter/the heavendairy Stellar news, right? But there's a catch, of course. This offer is valid for a limited time and shall expire post 30th April 2020. Thousands of Indians visit Sri Lanka every year, and have to pay as much as Rs 2,400 as visa fee upon arriving in the island country. © Twitter/Rahul Roy The good gesture has been extended following a dip in the country's tourism sector following the Easter attacks last year. In an attempt to revive tourism, the Sri Lankan government granted free visas to 49 countries, including India. © Twitter/theheavendairy Now, since we have passed on the necessary information to you, it's time that you follow up on the update and make the most of this offer. What better way to kick start the year than exploring a new country and rejuvenate before 2020 decides to come at you full force? View the full article
  14. Delhi's air pollution problem needed urgent fixing and the government has finally launched a pilot project to tackle the ongoing problem of smog. In the capital, a 20-feet air purifier has been installed in Delhi's Lajpat Nagar market. © Kickstarter/Concept Image The Air Purifier tower has been installed to reduce the particulate matter in the area and experts involved with the project claim it will be able to reduce the same by 80%. Delhi has experienced dangerous levels of air pollution this winter which has been at an alarming level these past few days. © Youtube This is not the first time we've seen air purifiers being installed in cities to combat the problem of air pollution. China has already been experimenting with air purifiers appropriate for cities for a while and has installed the world's biggest air purifier two years ago. As a result of the same, air quality saw improvement in an area of 10 square kilometres over a period of few months and the tower produced more than 10 million cubic metres of clean air in the same period of time. #Delhi gets first #smog tower to combat #Airpollution in LajpatNagar, cost borne by @BjpEastdelhi's #MP @GautamGambhir Foundation - delhi news - Hindustan Times pic.twitter.com/4SYljfDAha — The Sunil Kapoor™ (@sunilkapoor8) January 3, 2020 Similarly, the Supreme Court asked the Centre and the Delhi Government to take inspiration from China and come up with a roadmap on installing smog towers in NCR. The newly installed tower cost Rs 7 lakh and was procured by the Gautam Gambhir Foundation. The average running cost of the tower is Rs 30,000 per month and will be paid by the traders' association of Lajpat Nagar. This particular smog tower will treat the air in a circumference area of 500-750 square meters and will be able to treat 2,50,000 to 6,00,000 cubic metre of air per day. View the full article
  15. Realme is following the footpaths of Xiaomi by introducing advertisements on their smartphones. This move may have come to offset the cost of offering affordable smartphones to capture market share in India. Having advertisements on your smartphone's UI can be annoying but thankfully, there is a way to turn them off on Realme phones. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The advertisements on Realme phones will be a part of ColorOS6 and probably ColorOS 7 once it rolls out. The advertisement feature is carefully worded as the company describes it as "commercial content recommendation”, where it will promote applications and commercial links. These advertisements will appear in the Phone Manager app and the Security Check pop-up after installing a new application. The announcement for ColorOS6 to display ads was announced via a post on Realme official forum. Having said that, Realme has given the option to their users to turn off these recommendations and advertisements on ColorOS. The recommendations can be turned off by going to Settings> Additional Settings > Get Recommendations and turn off "Receive app and content recommendations in system apps.” © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Realme will have the recommendations on by default and it has to be turned off manually by following the above steps. As of now, this is the only way to disable advertisements while using Realme phones in India. An alternative way to disable the ads is by setting up the phone for a different region which also works for Xiaomi phones. As of now, Realme phones only support advertisements for a few regions and you can try to set up your new Realme phone in a different region to avoid these advertisements. View the full article
  16. Remember the frenzy that Ranveer Singh & Deepika Padukone's wedding had caused? Or how the Internet went berserk over Virat Kohli & Anushka Sharma's wedding? All the fanfare of their fairytale-like wedding aside, the four of them showed what exactly happens when style icons come together in wedded bliss. © Instagram/virat.kohli & Instagram/ranveersingh Even though Hardik Pandya and Natasa Stankovic haven't set the date for their wedding yet, they have managed to break the internet, thanks to the photos from their extremely private engagement in Dubai. © Instagram/natasastankovic__ That Hardik is a bona fide fashion icon is no surprise. The man clearly knows how to dress up, or even dress down for an occasion with flair and panache. And given her modelling career, Natasa too knows what dressing up impeccably entails. © Instagram/natasastankovic__ If their engagement photos are anything to go by, the two are certainly the new “It” couple of B-Town, at least as far as style and fashion are concerned. © Instagram/hardikpandya93 Since the ceremony was a private affair in a small boat off the coast of Dubai, with only close family and friends in attendance, in their engagement pictures, they are rather simplistically dressed. While Hardik is seen in a rather simplistic, but a zany brown monogrammed shirt, and a pair of joggers that look like a hybrid between a skirt and a pant, Natasa was dressed in a classic combination of blue denim and a white and blue striped blazer. © Instagram/hardikpandya93 That being said, their ensembles were not that simplistic. The round-rimmed sunglasses that Hardik is wearing are actually quite zany, and complement the shirt rather well. That, and his Patek Phillipe Nautilus, worth Rs. 80,00,000 (yes, that's Rupees Eighty Lakh, for those of us who did not pay attention in our maths classes) really go well considering the chic Bohemian aesthetic that he is going for. © Instagram/hardikpandya93 Natasa as well is wearing an equally zany pair of cat-eyed sunglasses. And of course, how can anyone miss the engagement ring. As for the both of them dressing up with style, well, this picture does all the talking. © Instagram/hardikpandya93 Whereas Natasa looks rather swell in the sequined dress, all eyes end up on Hardik, with that single buttoned brown jacket, and the all-black attire that he paired the blazer with. The patent leather slip-ons are a nice touch, and so is the silver or platinum chain that he is wearing. All we'll say is, if their 'low-key' engagement turned out to be like this, we can only imagine what style statements will the two of them make for their wedding. View the full article
  17. Saif Ali Khan and Ajay Devgn starrer Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior has been making waves ever since Ajay Devgn shared the first poster for the film. And after he went on to share the first poster of Saif's character Udaybhan Rathod, people started to inevitably compare him with Jon Snow from Game Of Thrones. In the poster, Saif can be seen holding a sword and sitting on a throne with a menacing look on his face. View this post on Instagram Udaybhan Ke Darbar Mein Ghalati Ki Maafi Nahi Sirf Sazah Milti Hai… #TanhajiTheUnsungWarrior, in cinemas 10th January 2020. #TanhajiTrailerOnNov19 #SaifAliKhan @kajol @omraut @bhushankumar #AjayDevgnFFilms @tseries.official @tseriesfilms @tanhajifilm A post shared by Ajay Devgn (@ajaydevgn) on Nov 12, 2019 at 9:30pm PST Seems like word has reached the actor himself. Recently, during the promotions of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, Saif, and Ajay were asked about their take on the comparison. In an interview with Pinkvilla, he joked about the comparison and said that Jon Snow is no match for his antagonistic character Udaybhan Rathod. Saif said, “I will tell you something. I love Game of Thrones. But, I think this Udaybhan Rathod is like 20 times cooler. He is bad... I don't think Jon Snow stands a chance in front of this guy. And this is a much cooler performance, genuinely." Imitation is the best form of flattery.. Said who?#SaifAliKhan #TanhajiTheUnsungWarrior #AjayDevgn pic.twitter.com/XK1kzihZi8 — Thenysh (@kkashaan) November 13, 2019 Needless to say, now our expectations from Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior are sky high and we hope we don't end up disappointed. The film has been directed by Om Raut. Ajay Devgn plays the titular role of a Maratha warrior in the 17th century while Saif Ali Khan plays the role of Udaybhan. The movie traces the story of Tanhaji's battle against the Mughals. Watch the trailer here: Produced by Ajay Devgn, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is scheduled for a release on January 10, 2020, and will clash at the box office with Deepika Padukone starrer Chhapaak.

  18. PM Modi is becoming way too self-aware and it's just a little concerning, I'm not going to lie. Last month, he shared this because he knew someone praising him would attract so many trolls. My friend @RayDalio, the trolling after these words of praise would give you the best opportunity to test your meditation skills and being “like a Ninja.”! ð On a more serious note, the points below make for a healthy discussion, in the spirit of being radically open minded. https://t.co/5fXkYZdSfu — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) November 8, 2019 Now, we learned that he also knows anything and everything he does is turned into a meme, so he decided to give his blessings today. Basically, he shared a few pictures of himself from this morning where he's trying to see the solar eclipse, but couldn't actually see it because of clouds. Like many Indians, I was enthusiastic about #solareclipse2019. Unfortunately, I could not see the Sun due to cloud cover but I did catch glimpses of the eclipse in Kozhikode and other parts on live stream.

  20. What is the most benevolent act of kindness you've performed recently? Most people like to make donations to equal out their part of service to society and that, indeed, is quite benevolent in itself. In Gwalior, India, though, things are a bit different. Here, if you make a donation, you get something in return. Not only is there apt validation for your benevolence upon making a donation, but there is also flawless cultural identification of the political structure existing in that state currently, which is quite visible too. What am I talking about? Well, in simpler words, if you want to attain a gun license in Gwalior, all you have to do is donate at least ten blankets to cows in any of the state-provided shelters. So, if you think the unabashed appreciation for cows by certain party's politicians couldn't get any worse, well, it already has. Anurag Chaudhary, the man behind this legendary 'exchange' offer, is the District Collector of Gwalior, incidentally a city which is infamous for having a history of dacoits and bandits. © Twitter So, what made the DC realise that cows needed protection from the cold as much as people needed a gun license in the city? Well, it was brought to Chaudhary's notice that six cows had died due to excessive cold, when he attended a meeting of cow vigilantes (gaurakshaks) last week. He then thought the best way to protect the most sacred animal considered in Hinduism and restore and make compassion mandatory, was to start a fair and civil gun license exchange for some warm blankets, for the cows. Because why else would people donate blankets, without any incentive, right? And since Gwalior has been the hotbed of violent activities in the past, the best thing to do would be to propagate more violence, by making firearms easily available. Because that's the only way people will truly care. About cows, at least. “People in Gwalior have a craze for arms. They need it for self-defence. Hence, once they donate blankets to get preference in getting arms licenses we will have more blankets for cows in the shelters. Earlier, our decision to ask such applicants to plant saplings yielded good results and as many as 17,000 saplings were planted for arms license seekers.” Anurag Chaudhary told a popular publication in an interview. © Twitter/New Indian Express Earlier, he had asked people to plant saplings and take selfies with their saplings, along with taking care of it for a month and in exchange, people would acquire a gun license. And since people are easily drawn into weaponry talks, they planted around 17,000 saplings and got a gun license as a reward for doing so. The same thing is now being repeating and it makes us wonder if the only way Gwalior knows how to progress socially is by normalising incentives that promote gun violence. Is that how functionality dwells in that part of the country? Which TBH is quite scary. © Twitter/New Indian Express The fact of the matter is that violence and arms have normalised their existence in the state of Madhya Pradesh and not because the government uses it as an incentive to work on different social causes for the upliftment of the state, but because in the Gwalior-Chambal area, keeping a gun is a way to flex one's power and respect in society. It's something that was inbred with the historic dacoit battles that lasted there for decades, and like any heroic norm, keeping a weapon became a sign of strength. But, politicians today access that piece of history to use gun license as a pawn to further the cause they care about and, of course, win a section of their incoming vote bank. While some authorities practice this so-called compassionate exchange offer, there are others in the state, like the electricity department in the neighbouring Morena, who don't encourage such practices. The electricity department in Morena has asked for guns to not be given to those who default on their electricity bill, as they often threaten power officials and continue to not pay them. So, you see, there is always a flipside and it will always be the case if you hand any violent form of power to people. © RSVP movies While saving animals and planting trees is the need of the hour and we're glad the city of Gwalior is doing their bit, we are sure incentives toward executing these causes can change. They can be more naturally driven than desensitising people towards violence in general. We really hope the government realises the tragic fallacy of this incentive and changes the way socially-relevant activities are conducted in the state, hereon. View the full article
  21. The 26-year-old farmer Pradeep HR from Hiriyur in Chitradurga district in Karnataka sings western songs better than its original singer. The entertainer not only sings but also dances while singing these songs. He sings Justin Bieber's song 'Baby' even better than Bieber himself and it may sound shocking but a lot of the village locals don't understand the language but enjoys his songs. Here's a video of Pradeep singing 'Baby' and we cannot deny that it is better than the original. According to The New Indian Express, Pradeep failed the English exam during his graduation and has very less knowledge about the language. He said, “This was the time I developed an interest in English songs and western music.” He not only sings in English but in Chinese and Japanese as well. “I don't know either Chinese or Japanese languages. But I listen to the songs in those languages repeatedly and follow the accent and tune. I always plug in earphones and constantly listen to songs whatever I am doing,” he added. He also said, “By God's grace, I can change my tone and pitch to suit the track and the singer.” The video and his talent have surfaced on the internet and clearly, he deserves all the praise. Pradeep, however, makes a living by working on the field. View the full article
  22. Yes, you read that right, a “USB Condom” does exist even though it is probably the worst phrase you may have heard in the technology space. It is a device that prevents your smartphone at public charging points from transferring data. It can also be termed as a USB “data blocker” and is officially called the PortaPow 3rd-gen USB data blocker. © PortaPow It costs around Rs 500 and has the ability to kill all data transfers as it removes any data transfers by obstructing the connection physically. This device prevents scammers from phishing at public charging points as a way to steal data from users. One needs to simply attach the PortaPow data blocker to the charging end of a cable and then plug it into the smartphone. © PortaPow Scammers or hackers use “juice jacking” as a method to copy sensitive data or install malware on smartphones, tablets and other smart devices. In other cases, scammers have been able to install ransomware on smartphones and lockout users from their own devices unless the demanded ransom is paid. Scammers have also gone to the extent of leaving charging cables at these public charging points to target users who have forgotten their own cables. If you really do care about your own privacy or do not want any malware on your phone, Rs 500 is a very small price to pay. However, this data blocker is not compatible with USB-C devices. So, until the company releases a new one soon, you can get another adaptor to make it compatible with your existing devices. View the full article
  23. Until a few hours ago, Sundar Pichai was known as the CEO of Google. But, now he will also be known as the CEO of Alphabet, after co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin stepped down from their posts.' In a letter bidding goodbye to their managerial roles, Larry Page and Sergey Brin wrote "While it has been a tremendous privilege to be deeply involved in the day-to-day management of the company for so long, we believe it's time to assume the role of proud parents — offering advice and love, but not daily nagging!" © Reuters And with that, the 47-year-old IIT Kharagpur alumni became the CEO of Google's parent company as well and left the whole country beaming with pride. Page and Brin will continue to remain board members and shareholders of the company. I'm excited about Alphabet's long term focus on tackling big challenges through technology. Thanks to Larry & Sergey, we have a timeless mission, enduring values and a culture of collaboration & exploration - a strong foundation we'll continue to build on https://t.co/tSVsaj4FsR — Sundar Pichai (@sundarpichai) December 4, 2019 Pichai wrote a letter for other employees where he spoke about how change has been the only thing constant in his 15+ years in Google. According to Pichai, this change has come 15 years after he first met Page and Brin. He wrote, "I first met Larry and Sergey back in 2004 and have been benefiting from their guidance and insights ever since. The good news is I'll continue to work with them -- although in different roles for them and me. They'll still be around to advise as board members and co-founders." © Reuters He further added, "The founders have given all of us an incredible chance to have an impact on the world. Thanks to them, we have a timeless mission, enduring values, and a culture of collaboration and exploration that makes it exciting to come to work every day. It's a strong foundation on which we will continue to build. Can't wait to see where we go next and look forward to continuing the journey with all of you." While it's great news for Pichai, no one is happier than desi people who have flooded social media with congratulatory messages for him. Well, we can understand their excitement, this news brings hope to all the desi engineers. India's most robust export product is probably the 'Global CEO.'

  25. If you remember the song Sauda Khara Khara by Sukhbir, your childhood was really good. And if you are one of those who don't know what I am talking about, seriously which rock were you living under all these while? You are not a true 90s kid if you didn't break into a random dance in your bathroom when the song played on the radio; or when you're studying for your exam and there's a wedding in your locality playing the song. That's how addictive and dangerous this song is, you can never stop yourself from dancing. Since the 90s kids are now all grown up and getting married, Akshay Kumar, Diljit Dosanjh and Sukhbir decided to recreate that magic and gift you the ONLY song that deserves to be on every playlist this wedding season - Sauda Khara Khara 2.0 from their upcoming movie Good Newwz. The cast of Good Newwz minus Kareena Kapoor Khan are here to make your wedding reception crazier than ever with their latest remix version of Sauda Khara Khara, sung by Sukhbir, Diljit Dosanjh and Dhvani Bhanushali. In case you're wondering what's so special about this new version, well the answer is everything; especially the impromptu and epic naagin dance that Akshay Kumar breaks into. If your friends don't dance the way Akshay did in this song at your Baraat, disown them on the spot. People have already fallen in love with this song and we are definitely not surprised by their reaction. The lyrics are just like its ruling into my heart Awesome song guys plz listen this #SaudaKharaKharahttps://t.co/SyKXpSnS5p pic.twitter.com/TbCbp67rEc — roomið®ð³ (@RomaSherdy15) December 3, 2019 This track is just awesome.

He sat on horse in front of the groom and did this dance.
