  1. As a man, the very thought of being in constant and excruciating pain for days, every single month for the better part of my life, and that too because of no fault of my own, just sends chills down my spine. It goes beyond my imagination as to how women manage to get through the day while excelling at whatever it is that they choose to do, whilst suffering through such horror. But apparently, this man on Twitter clearly seems to understand their pain (https://www.mensxp.com/special-features/features/48030-how-far-have-indian-men-progressed-when-it-comes-to-menstruation.html) and even has an example of what exactly hurts more than that. Until women experience this, I don't wanna hear about period pains. pic.twitter.com/8Bgr7Ivyy6 — ð§¨â (@__sargee) March 15, 2019 So, just to get this man fact-checked on his comment, I showed his tweet to some of the brilliant ladies at MensXP, and this is how they reacted: “Hah. Okay, first of all, comparing the pain of getting one's knees scabbed to that of having your insides twisted every month is…well, pure garbage! Also, I would like to have this gentleman get his knees scabbed on a 'monthly' basis. If he is able to live through that, yeah, then I am ready to have an actual conversation with him.” - Marina Paulose, Senior Copy Editor. “I agree with him… only if he gets poked/punched on that bruise every month for four to five days constantly.” - Apoorva Sharma, Intern. “Could have agreed if the comparison was even remotely as sinister as the period pains. Come up with something better, then we will talk!” - Asmita Shaw, Intern. “Well, since the gentleman has never lived through hours of lower abdomen cramps, every single month close to 500 times throughout their life, I suggest he keeps his mouth shut. And if at all he needs a practical demonstration of what hurts worse, I am more than willing to kick him between his legs, because that's how bad period pains can be.” - Devlina Datta, Writer. Clearly, this man who goes by the Twitter handle '@__sargee', has zero knowledge of how unbearable these cramps can be and unsurprisingly, became public enemy number one on the social media site: pic.twitter.com/w4CVndKKed — Melisa Garcia (@MelisaG81561023) March 17, 2019 Why some people have to disrespect the woman, the mom that suffered to give them birth 𥺠— gameslister.com (@GameslisterC) March 16, 2019 Until men experience the involuntary pain of abuse, child birth and oppression I don't want to hear about little scrapes on knee. — ð¸A I D E Nð¼ (@Peachy_RM) March 15, 2019 I don't understand. Do you think women don't play sports, or women are invulnerable? What's the point you're trying to make here? I know that you're wrong, I just want to know how wrong. — Alexandra Erin (@alexandraerin) March 17, 2019 pic.twitter.com/b61TefOrYP — Bel, and a Flower ðºD-12 (@lepetitbel) March 16, 2019
  2. 'Call of Duty' publisher Activision is teaming up with Tencent Timi Studio to bring its massively popular first-person shooter franchise 'Call of Duty' to Android and iOS. The game will simply be called 'Call of Duty: Mobile'. 'Call of Duty: Mobile' is a free-to-play multiplayer title which draws inspiration from some of the popular 'Call of Duty' titles like Modern Warfare and Black Ops. Here, watch the trailer - Activision has also promised that the game will have competitive multiplayer modes from the original franchise including Search and Destroy and Free-For-All. Additionally, the game will also have series staple maps like Nuketown, Crash, and Hijacked. Also, much like the other 'Call of Duty' games, the 'Call of Duty: Mobile' players will also earn and unlock classic 'Call of Duty' characters, weapons, scorestreaks, and more. The trailer also teases some other multiplayer modes, maps, and character customization, so be sure to check it out. Commenting on the release, Activision VP of mobile Chris Plummer said, “Together with the amazing team at Tencent, we're bringing together a collection of the most beloved maps, competitive modes, familiar characters, and signature weapons from across this storied franchise into one epic experience for the first time on mobile.” © Call of Duty In case you're just as excited as we are about this game, you can head over to the game's official website and sign up to be the first one to get notified about its launch. We still don't have an official release date yet, but a public beta is coming this summer, so stay tuned for more info.
  3. When it comes to redemption in the domain of style, no one in Bollywood quite had it as successfully as a certain Mr Suniel Shetty. From shabby, ill-fitting clothes during the '90s to being the picture of suavity currently, at the age of 57 (what?), his style game has only improved with age - just like fine wine. What sets him apart from the crowd is his versatility, especially his comfort with pulling off traditional Indian wear as nonchalantly as athleisure. The way he pulls off a dhoti like it's no big deal, is one for the books, and here are 8 times he wore it, rocked it, and showed it why it needs to come back to our wardrobes immediately. 1. When he wore it with a smart black sherwani and paired it with a pocket square and black leather jootis. © Viral Bhayani 2. When he went for the most basic but most sophisticated outfit ever - the white dhoti with a white kurta. © Viral Bhayani 3. When he added a classy twist to the all-white dhoti kurta combo with a blue bandhgala waistcoat. © Instagram 4. A grey dhoti with a black border? Yes, please! © Twitter/SunielShetty_FC 5.

  4. 'Apex Legends' came out of nowhere and has taken over the battle royale genre with much steam. On its very first day, 'Apex Legends' managed to draw 2.5 million players and has since then garnered over 50 million players recently. © Electronic Arts When 'Apex Legends' was launched, there was no marketing or promotions involved and instead, Electronic Arts invited a few streamers to play the game. One of the sponsored streamers was Ninja and apparently, he was paid $1 million to play for a few hours on launch day, according to Reuters. That's Rs 6.9 crores if you convert it into our local currency. Of course, the partnership was no secret as his stream was labelled as "Apex Legends partner”. A representative from Electronic Arts confirmed to Kotaku that the company did have a marketing campaign in place with content creators at the launch of the game. Getting paid $1 million for two hours of work is a big payday even for Ninja when taking his earnings into consideration. It has been reported earlier that Ninja was paid $600,000 to take part in a single event last year. © YouTube EA's gamble to pay off streamers for promotions seems to have paid off as Apex Legends has managed to rake in a massive number of players in just a month. Apex Legends is a free-to-play game on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game is all set to receive a new update that will introduce its own battle pass for players to earn cosmetic items and in-game rewards. Source: Reuters
  5. This year we've seen three midrange phones sport a 48-megapixel rear camera in India -- Vivo V15 Pro, OPPO F11 Pro, and Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro. The on-paper number war has been going for years and we've seen phone makers play around with internal storage as well as the RAM. © MensXP With the current 48-megapixel offering, brands have tried to lure users by numbers. They take this a step further by merging four pixels into one for low-light shots, and in turn deliver sharper pictures with better details. Every brand wants to establish itself as a smartphone photography expert, but, what's the limit in this number game? © PC World Even before we can think of a number, Qualcomm has revised specifications of its processors. XDA Developers was the first one to discover this, and the updated spec sheet includes better single and dual camera capabilities, advanced slo-mo recording, and a new feature called Hybrid Autofocus. But, what stands out the most is the support of sensors up to 192-megapixel. The list of chipsets to now support 192-megapixel picture captures are Snapdragon 670, Snapdragon 675, Snapdragon 710, Snapdragon 845 and Snapdragon 855. Before you get all amped up, please note that this is just a theoretical value. Don't expect a 192-megapixel phone soon since there are a host of challenges to overcome. © XDA Developers / Snapdragon 855 Updated Sheet Firstly, you'd have to get your hands on a 192-megapixel lens and there are none available right now. Sensors that support this resolution cannot be suddenly squeezed down to fit in an ultra-portable smartphone. Secondly, the chipsets can support a single 192-megapixel lens only, and cannot be accompanied by a secondary lens or even a front camera. To facilitate this large resolution, Qualcomm is incorporating zero shutter lag and eliminating multi-frame noise reduction. One major take away from this update is that modern chipsets or the ISP (image signal processor) have come a long way and Qualcomm is constantly improvising. © Nokia On the other end of the spectrum, Nokia is trying a new approach of adding different lenses onto a single phone. The Nokia 9 houses five rear cameras with Zeiss certified lenses, that are joined by three 12-megapixel monochrome sensors and two 12-megapixel RGB sensors.
  6. Looks like the 'Shaheshah' is looking for a job and before he can even find one, the 'Baadshah' has already asked him to recommend him for a job. Confused? We'll sort it for you. Two of the biggest superstars of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan, are now looking for a job. At least, their Twitter banter hints at that. In case you missed it, Amitabh Bachchan's 'Badla' that also stars Taapsee Pannu released yesterday. It has only been a day, but the movie has already stirred storm at the box office, thanks to the brilliant acting and storyline. Instagram Now that the film has released and doing exceptionally well at the box office, Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter and jokingly mentioned about finding a new job. T 3112 - यॠतॠहॠà¤à¤¯à¤¾ ... à¤à¤¬ à¤à¤² नà¥à¤à¤°à¥ à¤à¤¹à¤¾à¤ ?? ५० वरशà¥à¤ सॠयहॠपà¥à¤à¤¤à¤¾ ठरहा हà¥à¤ !!ðððð pic.twitter.com/bYeYqmuNYP — Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) March 8, 2019 As soon he tweeted this, Shah Rukh Khan replied to his tweet and proved why he is called the king fo wits. He wrote, "sir aapko mil jaaye naukri toh mujhe bhi recommend kar dena." sir aapko mil jaaye naukri toh mujhe bhi recommend kar dena. — Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) March 8, 2019 Instead of recommending him, Sr. Bachchan instead offered that the two should work together. We are sure their fans are hoping for this to come true. hehehaaah .. sir साथ मà¥à¤ à¤à¤¾à¤® à¤à¤°à¤¤à¥ हà¥à¤ ! मà¥à¤°à¥ पास à¤à¤ idea हॠhttps://t.co/q2hW3YGu1V — Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) March 9, 2019 Soon, Taapsee Pannu and 'Badla' director Sujoy Ghosh too jumped into this hilarious conversation.

  7. Over the years, the concept of women empowerment has been soaring in the sporting arena, making female athletes touch spheres of greatness in every aspect. While a lot of male athletes are earning in crores from their athletic careers, female stars like PV Sindhu have also matched up, for example bagging a Rs. 50 cr. deal with Li Ning is a massive accomplishment for an athlete so young. Talking of Women's Day, here are a few top female athletes of our country who have made our nation proud with their achievements: 1. Jhullan Goswami © Instagram/smriti mandana Jhullan Goswami, a world-class allrounder who has contributed to the Indian Women's cricket for more than a decade now and continues to be a valuable asset for her side. Her number one rank in the ODI format, that too at the age of 36, is itself a testimony to that. Starting off from the age of 15, Goswami has been an inspiration to many young talents around the globe. Earning laurels such as the ICC Women's Cricketer Of The Year, Fastest Bowler, Arjuna Award and Padma Shri, Jhullan stands out to be as one of the biggest stars in Indian Sports. 2. Mary Kom © Reuters “Do not say you're weak, because you are a woman,” a statement given by Mary Kom proves she's a force to be reckoned with. Being the only woman to win the World Amateur Boxing Champion for a record sixth time, she faced gender discrimination at some point of time, to which she handed a k.o and moved on. The fact that 'Magnificent Mary' gave birth to twins in 2007 and then to another son in 2013, and then went ahead to defy all naysayers by making a magnificent comeback to her winning ways, proves her mettle. The nation is proud to have such a fierce warrior. 3. Saina Nehwal © Reuters The former World no.1 in women's badminton is another star of our country who has constantly been a role model for many upcoming female athletes. Kicking off at the age of 16 as the U-19 National champion, Nehwal has never bothered to look back and has been strong in her journey till now. Winning over 24 world titles in her journey so far, the shuttler has inspired people at every step of her life. We hope she goes on to win many more laurels for herself and for the country too. 4. Smriti Mandana © Instagram/@Smriti Mandana Smriti Mandana is yet another Wonder Woman in the Indian Women's cricket team. Taking inspiration from her role-model Jhullan Goswami, Madana has out-performed everyone in recent times, bagging the ICC Women Cricketer of the year and ICC ODI Player of the year awards this year. The 22-year-old herself faced a lot of discrimination in her early days as she was not given admission in any coaching academy just because of her gender. But her parents were the ones who made a proper pitch just for her to practice, believed in her and helped her to reach where she is today. 5. PV Sindhu © Twitter/@pv sindhu PV Sindhu, another superstar in the International Badminton circuit, has worked her way to the top of the Indian sports industry. Being the true example of a star, she has not only excelled in her field but has also given tough competition to many male athletes. Soon after Indian skipper, Virat Kohli signed an eight-year endorsement contract with Puma for around 100 crores, Sindhu also raked in a massive 50 crore deal with Li-Ning for mere four years. Adding to her laurels, she became the first woman to co-pilot Tejas in a recently held Aero India Show.
  8. Every year, the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) revises the salary structure of the Men in Blue and every year the rest of the Indian population shows their jealousy and gets awestruck by the massive cheques that get delivered to Virat Kohli and the rest of the Indian cricket team. This year is no different, as the BCCI just disclosed how much King Kohli and his men will be earning in the next financial year and the numbers are truly enormous. According to the on-going system, the Indian cricket board has divided their pay scale into four major categories and have placed the various members of the roster under them according to their form and performance during the previous year. A+ Category: There exist three positions in the topmost level or the A+ Category and the selected candidates for them are all no-brainers. Skipper Virat Kohli (World ODI and Test Rank 1 in batting) is accompanied by Jasprit Bumrah (World ODI Rank 1 in bowling) and Indian opener Rohit Sharma. The three megastars will earn a cheque of Rs. 7 cr. during the next year. A Category: Belonging to the second highest level, the players in the A Category go on to earn an annual package worth Rs. 5 cr. This category consists of the major lot of the national cricket team and includes Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, MS Dhoni, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma and Kuldeep Yadav. After a year flooded with bad performances, Shikhar Dhawan was downgraded from the A+ to A Category. On the other hand, after a successful Test series in Australia, wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant was inducted to this pay grade. B Category: KL Rahul, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal and Hardik Pandya make this level, each of whom will go on to earn Rs. 3 cr. in the coming financial year. C Category: The bottom level of the pay scale, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Ambati Rayudu, Manish Pandey, H Vihari, Khaleel Ahmed and Wriddhiman Saha will go on to earn Rs. 1 cr each. While the categoric division of the majority of the players feels to be justified, one case in particular of the second wall of India, Cheteshwar Pujara not being upgraded to the A+ Category after his astonishing innings in Australia in January and during the Ranji season seems to be a bit questionable. We have to mention the fact that these are the annual salaries that these cricketers stand to earn just from BCCI. Players like Virat Kohli also earn a crazy amount of money from the deals they sign with their numerous sponsors, some of which go beyond their annual salaries with the board. Case in point: Virat Kohli's 8-year Rs. 100 Cr. deal with the sportswear giant Puma that pays the athlete an outrageous Rs. 12.5 Cr. every year.
  9. It's been almost four years since we've seen a brand new Halo game ever since 'Halo 5: Guardians'. 'Halo Infinite', is one of the most awaited follow-ups in the Halo franchise and we will finally get to see it at E3 2019. © 343 Industries 343 Industries, the studio that took charge of the 'Halo' franchise after Bungie, is going to be present at E3 later this year. Bonnie Ross, 343 Industries boss told IGN that the game director Chris Lee will discuss more details about the upcoming game in June. Currently, not much is known about 'Halo: Infinite, however, Ross did confirm that the game director will be discussing the new engine i.e. “SlipSpace”. 'Halo Infinite' was first announced at E3 2018 via a teaser that showed off the game's new engine's capabilities. The trailer showed a big space with warthog travelling the environment. It had beautiful vistas and massive landscapes. Since it was a teaser, we can't be entirely sure if this would be the end result in the full game. Having said that, it would be nice to see how the game has been shaping up in the past year. E3 is still one of the biggest gaming events where new games and products are announced. Since there is 'Infinite' in the title, we're expecting the new Halo game to be a big affair. It's also rumoured that Microsoft will announce two new consoles this year for the next generation. Halo Infinite's launch may also coincide with the launch of new consoles. © 343 Industries 'Halo Infinite' is expected to have RPG-style mechanics and is expected to be a “spiritual reboot” of the franchise. The game is expected to launch for Xbox One, PC and possibly the next-gen consoles. We will know more about 'Halo Infinite' later this year during E3, which is scheduled to commence on June 11th.

  10. Vicky Kaushal has been catapulted to major glory right now thanks to his wonderful innings at the box office with 'Uri'. The actor impressed everyone with his strong performance in the movie, which has gone up to the 200 crore mark already. It's only natural now that movie makers and producers are making a beeline to sign him up and allow Vicky to be spoilt for choices. However, it looks like he has already set his sights on meaty roles which benefit the actor within him. As per latest reports, Vicky has already signed his next movie with none other than ace director Shoojit Sircar. It is a biopic on Udham Singh and Vicky will play the titular role. In a recent interview, Shoojit Sircar spoke about his choice of getting Vicky on board. “If you look at Vicky's track record, he is taking brave steps and making some really fabulous choices. I wanted an actor who is ready to give his heart and soul to the film. Plus, he is a Punjabi boy and my film is a story of a Punjabi man. So, in many ways, he turned to be the obvious choice.” Vicky, who was grateful indeed, said, “It's a surreal feeling because it's like a dream come true as I am finally getting to work with him. I have always been a big admirer of how Shoojit sir looks at his stories. The way he is looking at the character (Udham Singh) and the world, is extraordinary as well as beautiful. Plus, it's also a big honour for me that finally, I am going to be directed by him. Honestly, that's something that will take time to sink in.” The movie was initially meant for Irrfan Khan to play the lead but since the actor has been on a break owing to his medical condition, Vicky has stepped in his shoes. Udham Singh went down in history as one of the biggest freedom fighters our country ever saw. He was responsible for assassinating General O'Dwyer to avenge the 1919 massacre. The movie is slated for a 2020 release. Well, our excitement and our 'josh' are certainly higher.

  12. Amidst national tensions, the National War Memorial made its presence felt when it was inaugurated on Monday, 25th of February, 2019 by PM Narendra Modi. The memorial honours all the soldiers who laid down their lives for the country, since India proclaimed Independence in 1947. The memorial is sprawled over 40 acres, at the India Gate complex, right at the heart of the capital and it was first proposed nearly 6 decades ago. The wait is finally over and we can salute our memorable war heroes, in a way they truly deserve to be remembered! The memorial, built at the cost of Rs 176 crore, has 5 concentric circles, a central stone obelisk and an eternal flame. Here are 12 pictures of the greatest symbol of honour and valour, we have in India today. © Reuters © Reuters © BCCL © Reuters © Reuters © BCCL © BCCL © BCCL © BCCL © BCCL © BCCL © Reuters The memorial has names of 25, 942 fallen heroes etched on stones there and it will soon create interactive panels for general public who want to pay homage to the war heroes. The memorial will also be a place for the armed forces to conduct future ceremonies there. Along with the wall memoir, the memorial also has four Chakras (circles) that signify the value of the armed forces. The Amar Chakra is the circle of immortality, the Veerta Chakra is the circle of bravery, the Tyag Chakra is the circle of sacrifice and the Rakshak Chakra is the circle of protection. More than any other heritage site you may want to visit in the capital, the National War Memorial should be the first on your list, as it's a symbol of true honour and pride for India.
  13. In one of the worst terror attacks ever, India lost over 40 bravehearts on February 14 2019, when a JeM suicide bomber rammed his car, laden with over 350kgs of explosives into a bus carrying CRPF jawans, in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir. © AP The whole nation mourned the loss and wept for the martyred jawans, but also proved to be a ray of hope for the families in this dark time. From raising funds, donating their salaries to cancelling their wedding reception to donate money; people are doing everything possible to show that they stand strong with the jawans' families. © instagram Another such moving gesture came from this Meerut groom, who paid his respect to a Pulwama martyr in an emotional and heartbreaking way. The groom, while heading to his wedding, stopped his baraat midway and got down from his horse, to salute the funeral procession of martyr Ajay Kumar. The picture was shared by Harsh Goenka, Chairman of the RPG Group, who posted the picture on social media which has since gone viral. He wrote, "Meerut's bridegroom dismounts his horse and the baraat stops to salute the funeral procession of Martyr Ajay Kumar. We too salute our martyrs. We will not let their sacrifice go waste."

  14. Back in 2009, BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) was the most trending tool for instant messaging. But, it was restricted to BlackBerry phones and relied on a PIN system to communicate with others. SMS (Short Messaging Service) was still actively used by most, and till date, a character limit drastically reduces the amount of data we can send in one go. For multimedia files, MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) or email were the only options. Sure, web messengers like Yahoo and Facebook Chat were incredibly popular, but you had to rely on a PC or laptop to use them. Instant messaging wasn't new, but "mobile" instant messaging was. And don't forget, every SMS or MMS incurred a charge. © The Global Mail Then came WhatsApp, an instant messaging application that realized the potential of Apple's App Store and leveraged it to the fullest. Within a short span of time, the service was a hit. The ability to immediately send messages over the internet meant no more additional SMS charges, and your data pack had you covered. In fact, WhatsApp was a paid service for a brief period due to the massive growth. The app's growth has been unmatchable, and it's no surprise Facebook acquired it for an unimaginable US$ 19 billion. Let that sink in, an app-based instant messenger was sold for $19 BILLION. How Did It Revolutionize Instant Messaging? © iSource 1. It focused on simplicity: BBM had a PIN system and worked only with BlackBerry phones. Hence, if you wanted to ping someone, you'd first need their PIN (which just wasn't easy to remember). Also, being restricted to one mobile platform meant you'd still have to rely on other services. Lastly, it needed a separate BIS (BlackBerry Internet Service) connection from your telecom operator. All these hurdles were instantly removed by WhatsApp since it relied on your mobile number as a unique ID. Hence, anyone with your contact details could also reach out on WhatsApp. The app also operated over a normal internet connection and required no additional offerings. © MensXP 2. Focus on messaging: A lot of competing apps over the last decade have started out as messengers, but lost focus when they tried to do multiple things at once. WhatsApp always stuck to their core product - messaging. Hence, the UI remained simple and straightforward. A whole generation that skipped usage of computers were able to adapt and learn the simple app. © WhatsApp 3. Reliability: WhatsApp has suffered multiple outages, but none of them has been over an extended duration of time. The users know the app may get slow during peak hours of the new year, but it'll still work in a few minutes. This trust was a huge offering back in the day and the service has built a reputation for itself. The app also has a remarkably well-built network in the back, and its lightweight protocol means messages get transferred with the slowest of data speeds. © MensXP 4. Send anything hassle free: Want to share your birthday celebration pictures? Done. Too tired to type and want to send a voice note quickly? Done. Want to send a PDF ticket instantly? Done. There's almost nothing that WhatsApp can't transfer. And, its compression helps in reducing storage requirements as well. Emails often don't sync easily with a low network or slow data speeds, but WhatsApp will come through. © WhatsApp 5. Don't type, just speak: In 2015, WhatsApp rolled out voice calling as an in-built feature, followed by video calls. This meant you could not only send texts but also talk in real-time without incurring additional charges from the telecom operator. © WhatsApp 6. Going cross-platform: Last, but the most important factor. WhatsApp started out with iOS, but was quick to adapt to upcoming Android OS. Then, it gave a shot to Symbian, BlackBerry OS, Windows Phone, and more. This ensured that a maximum number of users were covered. By the time BBM opened up, WhatsApp had already snatched the throne. Even today, Apple's own iMessage is used regularly in selective markets only. And a closed-door policy never works for anyone. Let's hope upcoming RCS standards are able to bridge this gap and offer an option by-default to all users. © WhatsApp Critics would argue that WhatsApp has always been comparatively slow in rolling out new features, and they are right. But when you have a user base of a billion people, sudden additions are a risky move. And WhatsApp has always played safe. Like I said, the service has a sharp focus on "messaging", and doesn't wander off. BBM had encryption years before WhatsApp did, Telegram and Skype offered video calls much earlier than WhatsApp did, and even stickers took an extremely long time to come. But, consider WhatsApp to be a government policy. With so many different clients involved, the company needs to think about everyone, right from a budget phone user to a flagship user. That too across multiple platforms. © TIME While WhatsApp has made communication quick and simple, it has been mired in controversy recently. The ease of use also meant the uncontrolled spread of fake news and unverified messages. These "forwards" have already costed many their lives due to mob justice, and the service has done little to curb this epidemic. On one side, its encryption ensures that everyone's messages stay private. But it also means monitoring or moderation is impossible. And the platform has been under immense pressure from government bodies lately. The service has tried to bring in a few countermeasures like limiting forwards, but it's like using a bucket of water to douse a forest fire.
  15. The brave men, who guard our country, lose sleep so that we can sleep in peace and also sacrifice their lives for the love of the nation, deserve more than just our respect. No amount of love or words that one pours to thank our soldiers can suffice the work they do for this country. However, it's not just them who make this sacrifice. One cannot even imagine the strength their family members show in enduring the risk of sending their bravehearts to the border. It is not easy being a wife of an army officer but it is an honour for sure and Gauri Mahadik is one such hero who is proving to the world that she is a woman of steel. She is the wife of Major Prasad Mahadik, who was martyred in 2017 at the Indo-China border in Arunachal Pradesh. While life definitely must have stopped for a while for this brave woman, it definitely didn't deter her from facing it with all the strength she had. Gauri is now all set to join the army herself as a tribute to her brave husband. Gauri will be inducted as a lieutenant in the army once she completes her training in Chennai. Gauri cleared the service selection board (SSB) exams and qualified for the rank by actually topping the exam with great score. Talking about some kind of serendipity and a beautiful twist of destiny, Gauri was allotted the same chest number (28) which was also allotted to her husband when he was undergoing his training. She is a qualified lawyer who quit her job to pursue this dream in memory of her husband. It is stories like these which fill your heart with strength and courage and make you believe that every storm is followed by a rainbow.
  16. The smartwatch and wearables industry is growing at a fast pace and there was bound to be an affordable smartwatch that can do everything that an Apple Watch can do. However, not all smartwatches are as fluid as the Apple Watch or deliver an experience that keeps users loyal. However, if you are looking for an affordable smartwatch, the Amazfit Verge is the closest bet that offers GPS navigation, fitness tracking and notification management for Rs 12,000. The smartwatch category is flooded with numerous options, but does the Amazfit Verge perform better than the rest of them? Let's find out. Design Being a budget smartwatch, the Verge does not offer the same build quality as a premium smartwatch. It's got an all plastic body with one plastic button on the upper right corner. It's light and does not offer that feel good factor you would want from a watch. The red button is used for navigating apps and selecting options. However, the button is not accurate as we would have to often click the button multiple times to get the OS to respond. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The smartwatch comes with a proprietary charger which we feel was not the best design option to go with. When done charging, sometimes we would have to yank out the smartwatch hard, fearing we may just break the strap or the charger. We would also have to place the smartwatch in the current orientation as it does not have charging pins on both sides of the charger. The circular dial on the Amazfit Verge houses an AMOLED display which is bright enough to be clear and visible in bright sunlight. The display is good enough to read notifications and text which is a plus to have on a smartwatch. There are 10 watch faces you can choose from which can be changed from the watch itself or from the app. Having said that, the watch-faces are quite rudimentary and does not offer many customisations. Features The one thing I love about the Apple Watch is the ability to view notifications and take appropriate action. For example, I can reply to WhatsApp messages, text messages and send voice notes without ever opening my smartphone. On the Amazfit Verge, you do get notifications, but you cannot reply to text messages or even read emails. There's no support for third-party apps which makes it quite disappointing, The only apps you can use are the ones that come pre-installed i.e. heart rate reader, timer, stopwatch and that's about it. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Amazfit Verge has an integrated mic and speaker. This can be used for making and receiving calls straight on the smartwatch. In order for this feature to work, you need to have your smartphone near you. You can even use the stereo speaker to listen to music as it has 4GB of onboard memory (2GB more storing music). In our experience, the feature worked well especially when making calls. Callers did notice that I sounded like I was using an earpiece. However, we would have loved to see the Amazfit Verge would ring at the same time as the smartphone. Call notifications were sometimes delayed and in that time we could just pick up the call on the smartphone. It kind of defeats the purpose of having a call feature on the smartphone if we don't get notified on time. Performance Being a smartwatch, it is able to track your activity and exercises just like any other smartwatch however not all is rosy in this category either. We found the footstep tracking to be inaccurate when calculating steps taken manually and comparing it with the readings. In fact, we tried to test the accuracy by wearing the smartwatch for the first time on our drive to work. The Amazfit Verge tracked 200 steps while we were driving indicating that it isn't as reliable as budget fitness bands. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla When it comes to GPS tracking, the smartwatch was accurate at most occasions; however, we found it to be off by 200 meters sometimes in select areas and sometimes off by a kilometre. This may not bother a casual runner. However, it can be quite disadvantageous for hikers and outdoor runners. The other problem with the GPS feature is its inability to start up quickly. We were ready to go for a walk and had to wait for the GPS to start working. The Amazfit Verge takes particularly long to catch the GPS signal which can be frustrating if you want to just get going with your workout. The heart rate monitor is accurate on the Amzfit Verge as the results were almost identical with the Apple Watch Series 4 and Omron Pulse Oximeter. The Amazfit Verge has the ability to track different types of workouts and can automatically detect your activity. This is a nifty feature that works on the Amazfit Verge as advertised. However, you cannot track multiple workouts at the same time as you will need to end each activity tracking mode before starting another. This basically does not allow a user to track different activities in a single workout which can be a bit frustrating when exercising. You don't want to keep looking at your smartwatch before you start a new exercise as we're already in the flow and don't want to stop. The Final Say The Amazfit Verge offers every feature you want to see on a specs sheet. However, it simply doesn't cut it. Just because it has all the features doesn't mean it's a great smartwatch. It needs to be executed properly for cohesive user experience. From delayed notifications to a less than an appealing design choice, the Amazit Verge is not something we expected. The operating system needs to be more refined and needs to be able to handle more than one app at a time. Activity tracking also needs improvement which is one of the salient features of a smartwatch. Priced at Rs 12,000, it's suitable for people who are looking for a smartwatch packed with features and can sacrifice the overall user experience.
  17. OnePlus 7 is expected to launch in a few months if we take the company's recent product launch cycle into consideration. The OP 7T is expected to launch in the second quarter of 2019 and it seems like the company is about to adopt a brave new design for OnePlus smartphones. We've seen something similar with the OPPO Find X before and it seems like OnePlus may implement something similar. © Twitter It may seem too soon for a OnePlus leak; however a previous leak suggests the same design choice when an image leaked a concept phone in a protective case. OnePlus 7 Leaked#oneplus7 #OnePlus pic.twitter.com/Rb8SzTm8Ix — ä¸æ³æµç§°ä¹å«å°è (@Steven_Sbw) February 13, 2019 The leak came from a twitter account that has no previous record of accurate rumours and cannot be verified at the moment. The account does not explain the origin of the image, which makes the leak a bit sceptical. The image in the tweet, however, is in line with a previous leak where the device does not have a notch or even a punch-hole selfie camera. This implies that the smartphone may use a sliding mechanism similar to what you have seen on the OPPO Find X. OPPO, Vivo and OnePlus are owned by the same holding company i.e. BBK Electronics which makes this claim a bit plausible. Vivo and OPPO both launched a smartphone with a sliding mechanism or a pop-out camera last year. So it doesn't seem far-fetched that OnePlus may borrow the same design from its sister companies. What remains to be seen is the durability of a sliding mechanism and phones in the past have been known to wear down with use. It's a problem with any smartphone that has moving parts which make this a brave design choice for OnePlus if this rumour is to be believed. © Twitter From the image above we can see clearly that the device has a noticeable bezel possibly because of the sliding mechanism. It seems to be thicker than the rest of the phone which is very reminiscent of the OPPO Find X. Since this is a rumour based on an unverified tweet, the picture cannot be corroborated at the moment. We will know more about the smartphone closer to its launch but for now, this leak should be met with scepticism.
  18. Yesterday, on February 14, the nation was painted red with blood as more than 40 CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) personnel were martyred in one of the worst terrorist attacks ever, in the state of Jammu & Kashmir. The death toll is on a constant rise as the injured soldiers continue battling for life. © AP From Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Bollywood celebrities to commoners; the nation is mourning the death of these bravehearts. The families of martyrs have sunk in deep shock and no amount of words can ever console those hearts that are weeping for their loved ones, who were killed in Pulwama. Attack on CRPF personnel in Pulwama is despicable. I strongly condemn this dastardly attack. The sacrifices of our brave security personnel shall not go in vain. The entire nation stands shoulder to shoulder with the families of the brave martyrs. May the injured recover quickly. — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) February 14, 2019 However, no matter how tough the times have been, people from across the country have always stood in solidarity with each other and this time too, they are paying their tributes to the martyrs by coming forward to provide financial help to the families of the soldiers who lost their lives. In 2017, actor Akshay Kumar along with the Central Government launched 'Bharat Ke Veer', an initiative to pay homage to the bravehearts who lost their lives in the line of duty. In this initiative, one can help the families financially, by donating either using the app or the website bharatkeveer.gov.in. © YouTube Apart from 'Bharat Ke Veer', the organisation 'Milaap' has also started a fundraiser to help the families affected by the terror attack. Actor Kunal Kapoor too posted on social media about his campaign 'Ketto', urging people to come forward and support the martyrs' kin. My heartfelt appeal to people, to come forward & support @ketto for their campaign to rehabilitate the families of @crpfindia martyrs. India, lets stand up for those who gave their lives for our safety. Jai Hind ð®ð³ — kunal kapoor (@kapoorkkunal) February 15, 2019 You too can contribute to these fundraisers and prove that nothing can break the nation's spirit in these dark times.
  19. We all still listen to and love The Beatles, but their legendary songs could easily become a thing of 'yesterday' and be gone forever. Yep, that's the world of the movie 'Yesterday' where only one single person remembers iconic songs like 'Hey Jude' (and not dude, please) and 'Let It Be'. It's honestly hard to 'Imagine' (ha!) a world where John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr never came together to become The Beatles, but it does make for a unique and interesting movie idea. Basically, the movie is about Jack Malik, a struggling musician who realizes his accident was actually a miracle in disguise. He starts singing the song Yesterday and surprises everyone with his songwriting talent. After realizing he woke up in a world where The Beatles never existed after his accident, he sees a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and obviously takes it. Claiming all the Beatles songs as his own, he becomes the greatest songwriter in the entire world. I've seen the trailer so many times and I will continue watching it because it's that good! And, the best part is that in the trailer, at one point they show two men walking in who claim they have written the songs. Notice something? And notice something here? © Twitter Although it's not directly stated that Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will also be in the movie, who else could it be in the gif above? One of the guys (Paul) is barefoot for crying out loud, it's a dead giveaway! I'm so here for Paul and Ringo coming to fight, honestly so ready for this movie. It will be a hit, for sure. Danny Boyle's 'YESTERDAY' looks absolutely brilliant. This premise is so extremely clever, and goes to show how influential the Beatles were & STILL ARE in the 21st Century. Newcomer Himesh Patel looks phenomenal! Add on Boyle's directing talents & we may have a surprise hit! pic.twitter.com/t9ROUwFCl8 — DR Movie News (@DRMovieNews) February 12, 2019 A very good point! Oh my god this looks amazing and they cast a South Asian as the LEAD, in a movie not about being South Asian, who all the girls are in love with. This. Is. Goddam. Progress. â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ Oi Oi @HimeshJPatel â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ https://t.co/c7MKjxbNSh — Jameela Jamil (@jameelajamil) February 13, 2019 The coolest concept. I don't know if I have ever been this excited for a movie like: #Yesterday about IF #TheBeatles never happened and this guy was the only one to know & make himself famous, my gosh what a cool concept &... THE #BEATLES #Music so ðð»ðð»ðð»ðð» @MsIndiaSummer you see this babe? #FuckYeah https://t.co/WcJmjvnMi9 — Jack Lawrence XXX (@JackLawrenceXXX) February 13, 2019 Yes, please. Wait so if the Beatles weren't a thing in the world of Yesterday does that mean John Lennon is still alive there? pic.twitter.com/oWfXpX3V4t — ð¤ (@anotherdownpour) February 13, 2019 That's a good point. Not sure how I feel about "Yesterday" The entire premise is interesting, but I'd find it hard to believe that without the Beatles that the entire pop culture landscape would be exactly the same. — Michael J. Gleason (@MichaelJGleason) February 13, 2019 So many new original songs, can't wait. These songs are pretty catchy. Can't wait for the soundtrack. — mcbc (@mcbc) February 13, 2019 So happy. that new Yesterday trailer (which I loved) made me listen to The Beatles on my amazon echo and now I am so happy we live in a world where they exist pic.twitter.com/MTZa8neyhA — john b (film critic wannabe) (@johnbizub) February 13, 2019 What a great line. This looks perfect. A seemingly diverse film using the Beatles art for what it is – a once-in-forever collection of absolute genius. And mocking how dreadful ears and the “industry” currently are. “It's not Coldplay, is it? It's not “Fix You.” I lost my shit on that line. ð — Stewart Blake (@stewblake) February 13, 2019 Good tweet. I think a better title would be Yesterday: The Noel Gallagher Story #YesterdayMovie — Bradlei (@BradleiGriffin) February 12, 2019
  20. 2018 legit belonged to Ayushmann Khurrana in terms of critical as well as commercial success. His younger brother, Aparshakti, also is just as talented and is slowly but steadily carving his own niche in Bollywood as well, which is purely performance oriented - something both the brothers are pros at. When it comes to fashion as well, they are the most stylish siblings around, who are not afraid to experiment with unusual silhouettes and colour palettes. They just proved it yet again at the Filmfare Glamour And Style Awards by wearing shoes that are legit the most glittery and sparkly shoes we have ever seen. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Just look at them! While Ayushmann wore a bejewelled pair in teal, Aparshakti stunned with a pair of charcoal grey shoes that has the sparkle of a rhinestone studded surface. Let's just say these babies shined brighter than their performances combined! © Viral Bhayani When it comes to their outfits as well, they didn't hold back. Ayushmann dazzled in a silver striped Amit Aggarwal creation, while Aparshakti kept it classy with a Shantanu and Nikhil ensemble. © Instagram/ishabhansali © Instagram/aparshakti_khurana Now, that is what you call a 'well-rounded performance'. Well done, bros!
  21. Quite often in this world of made-up identities and fake looks, we come across a saying “Naam Me Kya Rakha Hai?” and the guys from WWE take it quite seriously. Taking up quirky, catchy names in order to distinguish themselves from their counterparts, really works. From the likes of The Boogeyman, The Hurricane, Hulk Hogan to Triple H, Edge and The Undertaker, these legends left no stone unturned in making our childhood glorious. Just admit it, you use to leave everything you were doing as the clock struck 5 on Monday and Tuesday evenings, just to switch your television on and put on Ten Sports. Though these guys were professional wrestlers with their kayfabe persona, they had a real life and (surprise! surprise!) real names as well. So, tighten up your seatbelts as we go on this ride to know the real names of your favourite wrestlers and relive the nostalgia. 1. The Undertaker - Mark William Calaway © WWE We wouldn't have done justice to this list if The Undertaker's name wouldn't have been on top. The Phenom is the most iconic wrestler the WWE universe has ever seen. Loved by fans of all ages and his 21-0 streak (which is now broken, no thanks to Brock Lesnar) at the Wrestlemania earned him legendary status. Add to that, the evergreen rumour that Undertaker has lived nine lives, made him a real fan-favourite. Apparently, The Undertaker changed his name eight times. Before finally settling upon The Undertaker, he was called 'Kane The Undertaker'. He was given the first name to make it easier on announcers who just didn't really use it for his first few matches. 2. Goldberg - William Scott Goldberg © WWE If you've ever played Smackdown Pain on a PlayStation 2, we know who your go-to player was for those everlasting cage matches. People knew it's over for the opponent once Goldberg had gotten into his stride and gone for the spear which eventually resulted in the Jackhammer. Oh! the nostalgia. On the day of his debut, WWE decided to pick the part 'Goldberg' from the wrestler's real-life name and go with it and he became an absolute legend of the game. 3. Rey Mysterio - Oscar Gutierrez Rubio © WWE While talking about Rey Mysterio, one thing that automatically comes to our mind is his immense athleticism. Jumping over the cage, ropes and even his opponents, the Mexican superstar's finishing move, 619 garnered plaudits from even not-so-frequent watchers of the game. Oscar got the name 'Rey Mysterio' from his uncle Rey Mysterio Sr., who trained him in various fighting techniques. After being known by different names like La Lagartija Verde (The Green Lizard)" and "Colibrí (Hummingbird) his uncle gave him the name Rey Mysterio Jr. 4. The Hurricane - Gregory Helms © WWE How can we forget this guy? Dressed in green with a black mask and a cape at the back, this guy felt like a character straight out of a Marvel film. The Hurricane was certainly an attention-grabbing wrestler, if not a successful one. When World Cruiserweight Championship (WCW) was bought by WWE, Helms renamed himself as 'The Hurricane' and brought in the superhero gimmick. 5. Umaga - Edward Smith Fatu © WWE Umaga, for the best part of the first 9 months since his debut, was known as 'Undefeated Umaga' because of his stellar start to the career in the organisation. His run of successive wins was finally ended by John Cena in a WWE Championship match. Umaga took his name from the Samoan tattooing process, 'Umaga' meaning 'The End' and his finishing move, the Samoan Spike, certainly did that. 6. Edge - Adam Joseph Copeland © bleacherreport Best known for his unethical antics, Edge in his prime was hated by almost every WWE fan. His allies with Gangrel and Christian, rivalry with John Cena and Triple H, and 'that' marriage with Lita, gave all the fans some moments to savour. 7. Triple H - Paul Michael Levesque © mandatory The five-time World Heavyweight Champion, Triple H has aged like fine wine. Still operating as the Executive Vice Chairman of WWE, Triple H's Spinning Spinebuster followed by a Pedigree used to spell “Game Over” for his opponents. Triple H focused on his former name, Hunter Hearst Helmsley before selecting his permanent one and we can't argue how right he was. 8. The Big Show - Paul Wight © WWE Let's just admit it, Big Show was a real fan-favourite in the trump card game. Marked as the heaviest player at 510 lbs, the big man's Chokeslam is still fresh in our memories. His partnership and rivalry with Brock Lesnar gave us some great matches. As a product of WCW, The Big Show was known as The Giant. After his switch to WWE, he was called Big Nasty before finally settling on The Big Show. 9. Rikishi - Solofa F. Fatu © WWE We can't explain how much fun it was to watch Rikishi wrestle. The blonde haired, Samoan wrestler formed an iconic tag team partnership with The Rock and the pair went on to win World Tag Team Championship. Rikishi's Stinkface was fun to watch finishing move for the supporters but a nightmare for his opponents. Rarely any of them survived. It comes as no surprise that Solofo settled on the Rikishi which literally means 'Sumo Wrestler', something his big frame justifies. 10. The Boogeyman - Martin Wright WWE Whenever we hear the name 'The Boogeyman', an image of a man eating worms, pops up in our minds. Probably the most disgusting wrestler of all time, The Boogeyman proved to be a constant menace for his opponents. Often forcing them to give up with his worm eating tactics. Boogeyman is an imaginary evil spirit, who used to frighten people and right from his debut The Boogeyman just did that, complementing his name completely.
  22. When anyone in the country decides to join the armed forces, it is given than their life and their soul has been authorised for serving the nation. Our brave men fight wars not just on the borders, but the wars they fight everyday in their heart when they serve the nation, while their family prays and waits for their arrival. IAF Squadron leader Samir Abrol was no different when it came to serving his country. © Facebook Squadron leader Samir Abrol and Siddharth Negi were killed while test flying the Mirage 2000 aircraft at the HAL airport in Bengaluru. The pilots tried to eject themselves but failed to do so as the flames engulfed them. This gave rise to many questioning the hygiene standards of aircrafts bought and given by the system to our pilots in the Air Force. #UPDATE The other pilot who had also ejected has succumbed to injuries in hospital. Both were test pilots- Squadron leader Negi and Squadron leader Abrol. #Bengaluru https://t.co/WZYA5RzWSU — ANI (@ANI) February 1, 2019 After Samir's brother Sushant making some valid points that are stark and alarming in questions, Samir's wife , Garima Abrol has now penned an open letter demanding answers for the loss of her husband and thousand other officers who die due to negligence in the system. Sushant Abrol: A train derails & the system wants the Railway Minister to step down but every now and then these crashes happen. Is anyone raising fingers against the Ministry, the defence minister? I have utter respect for Ma'am and I am looking up to her for an answer. https://t.co/GCaxJ4SDrZ — ANI (@ANI) February 7, 2019 Besides highlighting the pain of loss and how a soldier's family is braver than any of us, Garima raises some very valid points that demand our immediate attention. While the messages of empathy and sympathy will continue to flow for the Abrol family, let's not let this chance go and ensure that Samir's sacrifice is the face of change, not just another case of negligence.

  24. With the closing season of 'Game Of Thrones' almost here, Adidas has launched a collaboration of Ultra Boosts that have been inspired by the iconic show. The Game Of Thrones x Adidas pack was unofficially dropped this week and they clearly indicate the House they've been inspired from or the character. Here are some of the most obvious pairs that fans have pointed out. Take a look: 1. The Night's Watch © HBO © adidas At the north point of Westeros, the Night Watch guards the seven kingdoms like the army guarding the borders of a country. The patrol the Great Wall wearing the thickest furry coats in black. The inspired shoes take a cue from their uniform to make a black upper prime knit upper surface and give a white sheen in the white mudguard, Boost midsole, and outsole that symbolize the never-ending snow in the North. A leather lace cage puts the shoe together which represents the leather armour of the Night Watch. 2. The House Of Lannister © HBO © adidas The Lannister sigil prides itself with a lion and a "Hear Me Roar" tag line and a confluence of gold and crimson. These indicators are clearly visible in this shoe. Take a look. The red primeknit is a marker of their house, and the three gold lines mark the wealthy reputation of the Lannisters that always makes them say: via GIPHY 3. The House Of Targaryen: Daenerys © HBO © adidas With white, cream and silver accents on the laces, lace cage, heel cup, and heel tag this shoe is probably the most elegant of the lot. Targaryen is considered the noblest House of the lot, their family has distinct features of pale skin and silver hair which are accounted for in this Ultra Boost. 4. The House Of Targaryen: Dragons © HBO © adidas The House of Targaryans: the former ruling House of Westeros' sigil is appropriated for this shoe. Their slogan, "Fire And Blood" is used both here and for Dany's Ultra Boosts. 5. The House Of Stark © HBO © adidas House Of Stark is the warden of the North and their sigil entails a grey direwolf on a white background. Black and grey that represent the house have been visibly used on the prime knit surface and touches of black on the lining, mudguard, Boost midsole, rubber outsole, heel cup, and their signature three stripes. The heel has a very significant and nostalgic tagline, "Winter Is Coming" because Winter is here, and people will die. via GIPHY 6. The White Walkers © HBO © adidas The White Walkers represent the destruction that is going to consume Westeros. The White Walkers are icy dead creatures that turn people into walking zombie-like digits that initiate destruction. For its Ultra Boost, ice blue is used on the prime knit surface, white Boost mid-sole and white rubber out-sole continue the theme with hints of black and the tagline, "Winter Is Here" to send a chill down your spine. via GIPHY
  25. #LivingItTheWrongWay Why do we feel the constant need to show everyone how 'perfect' our life is? What has happened to the good old concept of “keeping it private?” Why does every great night become our Instagram story? And the nights which are not-so-great, why do we need to make them perfect by using filters? Social media has become the platform which feeds our ego. From morning coffee to evening whiskey, we post every detail like Jack Daniel's would taste like Royal Stag if we don't post its picture online. I get it, once in a while, it's good to let your friends and closed ones know that you're enjoying your life in the way you want. But haven't we gone overboard with it? Posting gym selfies and 'cheers' boomerangs every day have apparently become the new 'in'. We have become so hollow that we need constant validation from our followers to know that we're living a good life! Social media now is a race of likes and shares. It has become a stage where people compete silently about who's living a better life. Envy, jealousy, superficial intellect, and all such things are the product of misuse of social media and are everything that is wrong with our generation. Can you remember the last time you just sat with your friends, had a good time, and didn't post it on the internet? Can't we be happy offline anymore? It might be okay to use social media as a travel journal or to post the highlights of our life. It sure creates memories. But posting fake candid and airport check-ins reflect how attention starving we have become! The world is now an “if you didn't post it, it didn't happen” kind of a thing. It was quite ironic when people who post every minute detail of their life blamed Mark Zuckerberg for invading their privacy. Sure, there is also good stuff out there on the social media platforms. Motivational videos, funny memes, poetry, proses, and every such thing for which social media should be used. But somehow, we have made it just about ourselves. And it has come to a point where it is becoming annoying. Annoying because we think showing off a Starbucks coffee cup and MacBook in one frame is cool. Maybe, once in a blue moon, it is. That too, if you're an amazingly good photographer. But posting it every Monday with the hashtag #mondayblues is most definitely annoying. Can't we try and make our life a little private? Every good evening doesn't need to be posted. Every good moment doesn't need to be clicked. Every relationship doesn't need a #TwoMonthAnniversary hashtag. Live for yourself, not for your followers, and most certainly not for your virtual ego. Life becomes better when you involve fewer people in it!
