  1. Not all desi dads are cut from the same cloth but there are some qualities that every Indian father possesses. Taunting their kids when they wake up late or using sarcasm to insult them is a birthright of every dad and they take it very seriously. © Yash Raj Films Every dad is different in his own way. Whether your old man is expressive and emotional or strict and stern, he is a typical Indian dad if he does everything under the sun just to see a tiny smile on your face without showing a frown line on his. © Hatts Off Productions Some Bollywood movies and series have given us the most relatable and real dads ever who remind us of the sacrifice, love and taunts of our own fathers. These reel dads have made us scream “he is so much like my dad” at our TV screens too many times. © Dharma Production Here are 5 types of onscreen desi dads that remind us too much of our own papa, baba, abba and dad at our home. 1. Satendra Sharma: The Struggler dadSatendra Sharma from Aam Aadmi Family is the one who makes sure you are aware of all the facilities you are getting which he didn’t enjoy as a kid and that you know its importance. He will tell you stories of how he used to climb mountains and swim rivers (all the time) just to go to school. And, if you suggest buying something, even for him, get ready for one of those “beta, paise aise kharch karoge toh..” lectures. © The Timeliners 2. Yashwardhan Raichand: The Sanskari DadThis is the dad for whom ‘sanskar, sanskriti and parampara’ are of utmost priority. If you have a father like Mr Raichand, you are required to attend family functions and festivals without fail, even if that means you have to come home from London in a helicopter. Plus, you are pretty sure that you will have to marry a girl he chooses for you. Because, keh diya na? Bas. Keh diya! © Dharma Production 3. Indravadan Sarabhai: The Sarcastic dadHe is the daddy cool who is always looking for fun and sometimes trouble. He uses sarcasm like a true blue desi dad. Honestly, he is better than Chandler at roasting and killing someone with his sarcastic one-liners. But you can always count on him when you make a blunder because he always has your back, and also a dozen solutions in his mischievous mind. © Hatts Off Productions 4. Chaudhry Baldev Singh: The Strict DadOne death stare from him still gives you nightmares, TBT when you had to make scenarios in your head before taking permission from him as a kid. You have grown up with certain house rules that you still sometimes follow subconsciously, given the fear of your dad. However, you know that he is like a coconut with a hard shell but a warm heart underneath. © Yash Raj Films 5. Sanjay Thapar: The Supportive DadIf you have a dad like Bunny’s dad in YJHD, especially when your friends have a Chaudhry Baldev Singh at their house, you are one lucky son of a...uber supportive dad. He supports you in every decision and encourages you to live the life he never got to live. Plus, he will casually slip in some cash, without you even asking. © The Timeliners So which one of these are you blessed with? View the full article
  2. In the positive news, most of us were freed from the daily commute last year. Soon after we also realised what an impact it had on our body and mental health. If the mode of transport was convenient, traffic was the problem. If traffic wasn’t an issue then long travelling hours made the day miserable. But on second thought, we might be settling for something worse now—a sedentary lifestyle. If you’ve been sitting for prolonged hours without much movement, you must have already experienced periods of stiff, achy joints and muscles. Not all of us own an ergonomically designed office chair. Most of us have been working from our hard as nails dining room chair. But don’t worry, you can skip the lockdown joint pain by indulging in these super easy but super helpful desk stretches. Neck StretchVirtual meetings don’t require us to move our heads as frequently. It’s natural to see an increase in neck pain. Try to schedule your desk stretches on an hourly basis. Place one hand on your head and sit on the other one.Pull your head to the side, gently.Hold for 5 seconds.Reps: 20 (10 on each side). __ECOMPRODUCT__1726__ Chest StretchTake your hands behind your back.Interlace your fingers.Draw your arms down while pushing your chest out.Squeeze your shoulder blades.Hold for 10 seconds.Reps: 10 __ECOMPRODUCT__1727__ Shoulder StretchAlign your arms across your chest.Hold for 30 seconds.Roll your shoulders backwards and forwards.Reps: 10 __ECOMPRODUCT__1728__ Lower Back & Glutes StretchPut your right ankle onto the left knee.Let the knee drop out.Bend forward towards your knee, gently.Stretch out your glutes and lower back.Hold for 10 seconds.

Keep your knees in line with your hips, not higher. Don’t go to your screen while sitting, try to bring it closer to you instead. This will encourage you to use back support.Don’t cross your legs under the desk.Walk and stretch every hour.Get up for a glass of water every half an hour.Keep your laptop close to your eye level and voila, bye-bye body aches!Explore More View the full article
  3. Few things are as precious as the relationship between a father and a child. From disciplining us to be astute members of society, to spoiling us rotten with their love, a father’s CV is multi-faceted. Zakir Khan’s ‘Papa Yaar’ is an eloquent ode to that often misunderstood loved one in our life. 1. “Life me aapko itni saari jagahon pe itne saalon se itna zyada disappoint kiya hai… Ki aapko mai koi salah doon aisi haisiyat hi nahi hai meri”Poignant and raw, Zakir’s words take us back to the fractious dynamic of many father-son relationships. As we grow up, and become more individualistic we realise that the intimacy and connect that we shared with them fades. Though that doesn’t have to be the case for everyone, with the maturity and richness of experience we now possess it is possible to empathise and understand the situations our Fathers had to go through in order to keep us safe. via GIPHY 2. “Ab jaise jaise bada hota jaa raha hoon toh samajh me aata hai office politics kya hoti hai, Samajh me aa raha hai ki paisa kamana kitna mushkil hota hai”The constant disappointments and stresses faced by an individual in society alters their nature in the long term. It left our fathers as people disconnected from emotions and us hesitant to approach them for the simplest conversations. via GIPHY 3. “Ab lag raha hai aapki voh thaki hui shakal ka asli matlab kya tha”As kids, we’re unable to grasp the impact of social influences on the quality of one’s life. What we saw as a wish not being fulfilled or our father’s inability to dote on us was often a sign of an individual trying to be their best despite the stresses they were experiencing. Back then no matter how hard our Fathers tried to make us understand the reasons behind their actions, we wouldn’t get it. It’s only after growing up and having gone through these same issues that we can even begin to understand the difficulties faced by our fathers in their pursuit to provide a nurturing environment for their children. via GIPHY 4. “Ek Shikayat hai Papa, batate hi nahi ho kuch aap” It’s heart-breaking how most father figures end up being viewed as uni-dimensional individuals by their children and society at large. Back in their time, vulnerability was seen as weakness. It’s only recently where sharing ones emotions have gained mainstream acceptance, so let’s not forget that they’re also the shaped by their experiences from an imperfect time. They would move heaven and earth just to ensure that their children wouldn’t have to witness it. It’s time for us to check-in on them. via GIPHY 5. “Dosti karlo yaar Papa… Please?”Zakir invites you to look at your father from a different lens; as a human being full of experiences, wonder and dreams. Sincere and pure, his words remind us of the fact that within our fathers there’s an entire personality waiting to be explored. So Interact, connect and cherish those stories. Hope this video inspires you to take a closer step to a beautiful friendship! via GIPHY View the full article
  4. If there was one trend that took us by surprise ever since 2020, it has to be chappals or flip flops. We have been seeing almost every celebrity step out wearing the comfortable trend and making a statement. Right from Vijay Deverakonda's mule slippers to John Abraham's affordable Billabong pair, many celebrities have gotten their hands on the trend. While some celebs went bonkers spending their money on these pairs, others gave affordable brands a shot. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Arjun Kapoor has also been setting an example for us by wearing some amazing pairs. However, chappals weren't the only trend that rose to popularity this season. We also noticed a rise in oversized silhouettes and shorts. Arjun's recent look in particular stunned us, not just because of the laid-back aesthetics, but the statement piece he threw in here. Yes, the hoodie designed with big holes in it. Take a look. © Balenciaga Arjun is wearing Balenciaga's ripped oversize logo hoodie. This hoodie with its bright hue can add some casual essence to the wardrobe. This oversized style is made in cotton fabric and comes with Balenciaga's huge logo. The relaxed style comes with drop shoulder and long sleeves along with a huge front pouch pocket. © Balenciaga This hoodie might be destroyed but if one is planning to spend money on this one, it's bound to burn a big, moon-sized hole in your pocket. The hoodie retails for Rs 86,136. Yes, so much for a torn style. © Viral Bhayani Coming to the rest of the details, Arjun paired the hoodie with a pair of black shorts by Stone Island. He has been a loyalist when it comes to wearing comfortable silhouettes and knows how to raise the style quotient. This combination paired well with his off-white chappals. We recently spoke about the pair. These cost Rs 20K and are sitting well with his overall look. © Off-White © Viral Bhayani Now that we have officially shoved our shirts and jeans in the back of our closest, a hoodie like this one would be a perfect match to blend for the pandemic season.

  5. There have been a lot of inspiring weight loss stories on the internet that showed some incredible journies. Right from a Mumbai girl's transformation from the 'world's fattest kid' to losing 108 Kgs to the story of Officer Kukrele, the internet has given us several inspiring stories. While we are in lockdown again, most of us have succumbed to binge-eating and just not giving a damn about our bodies. But, given the amount of time we now have to spare, here's another inspiring story of an IPS officer who decided to change his life, that will make the couch potato in you want to retire permanently. © Instagram/Vivek Raj Singh Kukrele IPS officer Vivek Raj Singh Kukrele was about 134 Kgs when he joined the National Police Academy. Unhappy with his body, he started training and shed an enormous amount of weight, in less than a year. The academy helped Vivek achieve the desired weight goal. In a long post, he went on to talk about his journey. He mentioned that he weighed 88 Kgs in class 8th when being 'chubby' was normalised to being called 'cute'. Only after he became a part of the academy, he weighed himself and that's when the weight hit a whopping 134 Kgs. He took matters into his hands and with rigorous training, his transformation was impeccable. View this post on Instagram He also mentioned that because of the weight gain, he suffered from hypertension and was under medication for it. For most of us, eating out of boredom is a hobby. As for the IPS officer, being a foodie himself, eating without mindfulness was the biggest culprit for weight gain as mentioned by him in the post. His path on the weight loss journey had its own ups and downs. He further explained how he gained weight and spoke about his early days in the Naxal areas of Bihar, where he reached 138 Kgs. © Instagram/Vivek Raj Singh Kukrele © Instagram/Vivek Raj Singh Kukrele He reached 130 Kgs, after which he took to walking for one of his official assignments. He wrote "Walking became a part of life and I started reducing weight. Gradual weight reduction made me start strength training and mindful eating which further boosted weight reduction.” View this post on Instagram © Instagram/Vivek Raj Singh Kukrele He then spoke about having a quantified diet, that helped him shed 43 Kgs and he said that he wants to maintain this body shape for as long as he can. I feel so inspired after reading this story, I might just wear my running shoes and start working out today itself. Did it motivate you as well? Let us know in the comments below.

  6. With the lockdown upon us once again, we are less focused on what to wear. The way we decked up for office hours, has now transformed from formal attires to pyjamas. Not just for commoners like us, but even celebrities are often seen making a statement wearing relaxed silhouettes to work. Take Kartik Aaryan's spooky pyjamas, for example, or Bobby Deol's studded chappals, we are seeing celebrities work fashion like never before. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Arjun Kapoor too has been making a few appearances, throwing in items that we have hardly seen him in. For the unversed, Arjun is actually a sneakerhead. Hence, every time he wears a pair of chappals, we can't help but notice his style. Remember the time he wore Lake chappals by Bottega Veneta? They seem like the most expensive chappals from his collection. © Viral Bhayani We are impressed with Arjun's casual sense of style. He recently gave us a peek at another interesting pair of chappals. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Before we talk about the flip flops, let's take a quick glance at his outfit. The white T-shirt with its kitschy appeal is a good, casual addition here. That, paired with basic pair of black pants made Arjun look dapper. Along with that, we like the way he has paired his opaque sunglasses here. Overall, the outfit looks pleasant, something that even can cop. © Off-White Coming to his chappals, they are no doubt a pandemic favourite, but they are super heavy on the pocket. He is wearing Virgil Abhloh's Off-White flip flops. The sliders are designed with utmost comfort and are crafted with rubber. These also have grain-textured footbed, which raises the aesthetics of the pair. The detailing of the brand on the strap adds more appeal to the pair. © Viral Bhayani The price? You can buy them for between $170 and $255 USD. You are basically splurging at least Rs 20,000 to own this pair. Now, that's a hell lot expensive for mere mortals like us. But, from a fashion POV, we love how the pair looks and we believe Arjun has really aced the trend. View the full article
  7. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We have all heard this statement. While many of us choose to grab a banana while running out of the house or fill up on cups of coffee to power up, the need for breakfast made a comeback into our lives when lockdown started. Some of us like to cook, while others like to get their hands on the easiest, fastest recipes possible. Now, making pancakes or baked anything might sound difficult, but there is a way to make your favourite breakfast food with just 3 ingredients, all thanks to Oats! Yes, you read that right, good & trusty oats. Now, whether you love them or hate them, these recipes will still blow your minds! __ECOMLOOKS__2975__ __ECOMLOOKS__2976__ __ECOMLOOKS__2977__ __ECOMLOOKS__2978__ To Wrap It UpEven though all of us stay inside and miss the days when we could go out for morning drives and brunches with our loved ones, there is no rule against making the food that we love at home. So, order all the ingredients and start cooking! Explore More View the full article
  8. People say money can’t buy happiness. Sure, but it sure can buy you some pretty weird stuff. Just look at some of the things that fans have bought at auctions and from e-bay to add to their personal collections. © iStock Auctions can get pretty weird at times, for they tend to target a very niche audience. With that being said, some of the pieces that have been auctioned, genuinely baffle the mind, especially whenever there is a celebrity involved. © Reuters Here are 6 super weird items that were sold at auctions, which will make you scratch your heads and ask, just how weird can fans get: 1. Britney Spears’ Chewed Gum - $14,000 © AFP Yup, a piece of chewing gum that pop star Britney Spears once chewed and spat, was sold for $14,000 on eBay. We’re just wondering who was it who picked it up and put it up on eBay. Moreover, who bought it, and why? 2. Scarlett Johansson’s Used Tissues - $5,300 © NBC We get why Scarlett Johansson has such a huge fan following. What we don’t get, is why would someone buy tissues that were used by her. Apparently, a couple of tissues on which she had blown her nose, sold for $5,300, again, on eBay. 3. Violin Case Front The Titanic For $1.2 Million © National Geographic Okay, this might be weird for some, but not for people who are into naval history, especially sunken ships. A violin case from the famous Titanic ship was once auctioned for more than a million dollars. Not much is known publicly about the case, as in who did it belong to, or where’s the violin. The auctioneer was requested to not disclose the details by the private buyer. 4. A Jar Containing The Air Brad Pitt Had Breathed Out - $340 © Reuters Seriously, don’t even ask us the logic behind this. Someone apparently, “trapped” a breath of air that Brad Pitt exhaled, in a jar. And someone actually bought it in an eBay auction, for $340. If you ask us, that’s $339 more than what it should be worth. 5. Justin Timberlake’s Half-Eaten French Toast - $3154 © AFP During a morning radio interview at a popular radio station in LA, Justin Timberlake left a half-eaten french toast behind, after he was done with the interview. The RJ put the toast up on eBay as a prank, but to his surprise, someone actually bid on the piece. Eventually, the toast was sold to a fan for $3154. The proceeds from the sale went to a charity, but it is surprising, just what all people will actually buy from eBay. 6. The Undergarments Of Queen Elizabeth II - Price Unknown © AFP Yup, this happened. Why did it happen is as much a mystery to us, as it is to you. Apparently, it went for an unbelievably crazy figure, but no one knows for sure. What we do know, that it was first bought by an artist named Baron Joseph "Sepy" De Bicske Dobronyi, whose estate auctioned it off again, after his death. The Bottom Line… If you thought celebrities are crazy, then just imagine how crazy their fans can be. Seriously, I would like to meet the people who bought these, and again, what were they thinking?

  11. Patient. Kind. Brave. Beautiful. Selfless. These five words can rightly describe every mother on this planet. Your mom is probably the only person on this earth who’ll pick up your dirty laundry and clean it without expecting gratitude in return. She’ll leave a few extra chapatis in the casserole because she knows you’ll feel hungry past midnight. She’ll turn your negative thoughts into praises in the nick of time because she knows you so well. But most importantly, she’ll never stop loving you. And even though she deserves to be celebrated infinitely, Mother’s day is one day you can dedicate to thanking her for a million times she stood by you. Here are some of the priceless ways to tell her that she means the world to you. And despite all the differences, she’s your home. She’ll always be. 1. Yes Day For MomParantha and masala chai in bed. Finally, agreeing to talk to relatives. Picking her outfit for the day and washing it later. Watching Anupamaa with her. Playing board games with her. Anything your mom asks you to do, your answer is going to be yes for one day. __ECOMPRODUCT__757__ 2. Reduce Her List Of Responsibilities...And not just for a day. Encourage your mother to take a break. Take up a few responsibilities from her like watering the plants, making her morning tea and breakfast, cleaning the clothes and dusting the rooms. In fact, surprise her by cleaning the entire house. Everyone appreciates a clean house, especially moms. __ECOMPRODUCT__1478__ 3. Sit, Sip & Share Turn off your phone for a day and give her your undivided attention. Teach her something new or go through your old embarrassing pictures together. Apologise for every time you’ve said something mean to her. Talk to her about her life. Gossip about your friends and relatives. Make it a happy house. And do it all while sipping mocktails. All moms can use a chill day. __ECOMPRODUCT__1479__ 4. Leave Surprises For HerShe would never see it coming. Hide her presents around the house and leave the discovery to her. Maybe slide a new silk saree and masks in her wardrobe, a diffuser in your living room, a watch and a grooming gift box in her dressing. Share some hints to make it more fun and easier for her. __ECOMPRODUCT__1480__ 5. Write A Letter Or Make A VideoIf you’re a writer, go for it. Fill a journal if you can. If not, just pick up your phone, switch on the recorder and start talking. From your first smile to your recent breath, thank her for everything because without her none of it would have been possible. Most moms hope for emotional encounters with their children and needless to say, you pouring your heart out will make her day. To take your celebration up a notch, request her to do the same! __ECOMPRODUCT__625__ 6. Gift Her The Fancier Version Of A Daily Use ItemLuxury is a word most moms forget with time. Remind her that she deserves a spa, a pedicure, a bath with aromatic handmade soap every once in a while. __ECOMPRODUCT__1104__ 7. Redesign Her Room Or Kitchen She would absolutely love it! Many a times she’s cleaned and designed your room. It’s your turn now. Not only will it make her happy but it will also show her how much you know her. Replace the old plates in the kitchen or get a new planter for your mom’s room. There’s a lot you can do if you think about it. __ECOMPRODUCT__1481__ So, What Do You Want To Do? We pick up all sorts of things from our moms—dimples, curly hair, sweet cravings, a propensity to wake up in the middle of the night and stare at the fridge for a couple of minutes, etc. Use that power to make her feel good about herself.

  12. Rumours of new Samsung foldable phones have persisted all year long and it’s probably the first time we might be getting a good look at this year’s models. The company has not announced any plans of new foldable devices officially, however new leaks show the upcoming devices in all their glory. Having said that, we have not verified the source of these leaked images yet but it looks like it might be from a promotional video by Samsung. © Twitter_sondesix It has been long rumoured that Samsung is expected to shut the Galaxy Note series this year and instead offer S Pen support on its foldable smartphones. This could be the answer we’ve been looking for as the screenshot shows how the S Pen could be used. In the image, we see a person attending a video conferencing call while working on a Microsoft Sheet file at the same time. The person is using the second display to work on a document while also attending a work call by keeping the device in a half-folded state. View the full article
  13. With two seasons down and the third one now streaming on MX Player, MX Original Series Hello Mini fans are left wondering who the mysterious man is who goes by the name ‘Stranger’. ICYMI, Hello Mini is back on the web with its third riveting season in record time, and it introduced viewers to new characters that add to the mystery in Mini’s life. As actress Anuja Joshi reprises her role as Mini/Rivanah in the series, Suchitra Pillai makes a dramatic entry in the show as a cult society leader Kamyani Devi or as her followers address her, KD Maa. While Suchitra Pillai’s entry in the show is stirring up some much-needed drama, the number one mystery continues to remain the identity of the Stranger. And to spice things up, here’s our list of suspects that might be the face behind the mysterious voice of Stranger. Danny MX Player Rivanah’s on-again-off-again relationship with Danny (played by Mrinal Dutt) has always been complicated. With interfering exes, self-doubts, and ego fights, there’s always trouble in their relationship paradise. But with every new low, we saw this couple get back together and make a fresh new start. Is this true love or a façade? Ekansh MX Player Guilty of spending a night together with Rivanah and cheating on his girlfriend, Ekansh is confused, battered, and vengeful. His character is brought to life by actor Anshul Pandey. Right at the start of the new season, we get a glimpse of the changing dynamic between Rivanah and Ekansh. Argho MX Player Colleague and competitor Argho has always been suspicious of Rivanah. There is more to this dynamic than what comes across at first glance. This complex character is played by Vikrant Koul with just the right finesse and attitude. Nivaan MX Player Rivanah’s superior at work, Nivaan has also been one to get her out of trouble – no questions asked. Sounds fishy, doesn’t it? Actor Vibhav Roy reprises the role of Nivaan in the new season as well. Virat MX Player Played by Abhinav Sharma, Virat is a software nerd, who along with his half-sister Vixy, stole the idea, and made Daredefy a popular game on the dark web. He is a wallflower and not the kind to attract girls who are looking for a stud. But under all that shyness – is there a side to him that no one knows about? Who do you think is the real ‘stranger’? Still confused? Start streaming the new season of Hello Mini on MX Player to find the hidden clues. View the full article
  14. Cheap sneakers and ‘Ranbir Kapoor’ seem to be incongruous - they don’t sit well in a sentence next to each other. © Instagram/ranbir_kapoor_fan_club_ Here’s a man that has some of the best sneakers in the world, and who is highly revered among Indian sneakerheads for his collection, and taste in sneakers. So fascinated is the guy with sneakers that he has dropped over Rs 5.8 Lakhs on a pair of limited-edition sneakers. Heck, he even has a guy, whose job is to buy sneakers for him, as soon as they drop. © Viral Bhayani So clearly, when he wears something that mere mortals like us can afford, it is a bit surprising. Pleasant, but surprising nonetheless. Recently, Ranbir & Alia were spotted in Mumbai, visiting Ranbir’s mother. While Alia was dressed in a simple and sombre salwar set, Ranbir had dressed down in a rather dope manner, almost like a chart-busting hip-hop artist. © Viral Bhayani Ranbir was seen wearing a rather dope-looking outfit, which consisted of a basic white coloured T-shirt, a pair of bleached and distressed denims, and pair of dope-looking sneakers. © Viral Bhayani We actually like how Ranbir has paired his denims with a seemingly basic T-shirt. The distressed and bleached denims are from the Italian athleisure apparel makers, Dsquared2, and they retail for over $650, or roughly Rs 50,000. © Dsquared2 We also like how he has accessorised his outfit. There’s that blue colour New York Yankee’s cao, and that dope looking facemask that he has got. He’s also wearing his trusted Rolex Sky-Dweller, one of his most favourite watches. © Viral Bhayani For those interested in the watch, it has a retail price of about Rs 10.67 Lakhs, but be prepared to shell out more, since it is a Rolex, and it is practically impossible to get your hands on one, without getting onto some sort of a waiting list. © Hodinkee Then, there are the sneakers that Ranbir is seen wearing. Given his fascination with limited-edition sneakers and his history of wearing some of the most obnoxiously expensive pairs, one would imagine that the pair he’s wearing would be as expensive as some piece of land on the moon. Well, one would be wrong. © Nike Ranbir is wearing the Air Jordan 1 Mid Banned from Nike, a pair of sneakers, which actually retail in India for less than Rs 10,000. The sneakers look as expensive as some of the classic, legacy Air Jordan 1s, which resell for Rs 50,000-70,000, albeit with some minute details. © Viral Bhayani The reason why these are so cheap, is because they are a refreshed line of sneakers, which were launched in 2020. Nonetheless, you get the highest grade of leather for the uppers and all the accents and swooshes. The sole is made out a blend of rubber, and polyester. © Nike Although the sneakers retail for Rs 9,995, you can pick these up from a number of e-commerce platforms for a lot cheaper, provided, you know where to look. © Viral Bhayani All in all, that’s a pretty dapper-looking outfit that Ranbir’s got there, especially the jeans and sneakers. Kudos, man, seriously. View the full article
  15. Tiger Shroff's style sense may not be like Ranveer Singh's or Aparshakti Khurana's, but he has his own way of working in the fashion department. It's a known fact that Tiger is more into relaxed athleisure pieces. He would rather choose a basic T-shirt and pair it with his extra-long pants, and finish his outfit with espadrilles or sneakers. All this establishes one thing that he believes more in functional dressing than going for silhouettes that are fancy. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani He was decked in a singlet by Asics designed in recycled materials for a more sustainable approach. He paired it with long pants again but we were absolutely distracted by an accessory this time - his passport cover. Take a look. Talking about his outfit first, we really like how understated it is. The colour palette of the tank tee is quite subtle. This is a functional-looking outfit yet again. The way he coupled the upper with long white pants, seems to be a good choice. © Viral Bhayani Say what may, the Louis Vuitton accessory takes the cake and attention from everything else and this is probably after a very long time we've seen Tiger experiment with something so off-beat. Way to go. View the full article
  16. There’s no dearth of good series to binge these days, though it might seem so when you’re endlessly scrolling on Netflix to find your next watch. Still, it sucks when the shows you stick by from the start end up being a little bit of a disappointment (Game of Thrones comes to mind). Every once in a while, though, a show will come up that will leave you with an ending so satisfying that it’ll leave you wanting more. Or sobbing your eyes out. Here are some series endings that are more of the latter. (And don’t worry, there are no spoilers to be found here!) 1. Mr Robot © USA Network_Prime Video In the words of a devout fan of the show, the series finale for Mr Robot is enough to destroy an unprepared soul. The stakes are high and the emotions are even higher throughout the final season, as the characters take on capitalism and the top 1% while also creating deep, meaningful bonds with each other. For those of you who haven’t watched the show, I won’t spoil the major reveal—because when you finally get to watch the finale, you’re going to be left reeling. 2. Breaking Bad © Netflix It doesn’t matter if you were watching the show with the rest of the internet or not; if you’re even vaguely aware of popular western TV shows, then you probably know of Breaking Bad. And what a ride the show was, from start to finish. There’s something about the high expectations heaped on beloved TV series that always seem to make endings a bit of a let down, no matter how good they might’ve been in actuality. But I can honestly say that the finale for Breaking Bad was satisfying in the way it tied up the loose ends and had me in tears for a long while after the episode ended. 3. BoJack Horseman © Netflix Words aren’t enough for the rollercoaster of emotions I’ve felt while watching BoJack Horseman. The weeks I spent on this show were probably the heaviest I’d experienced; the comedy show is enough to have the most composed and pragmatic people reflecting on humanity and existence, and I am far from being one. It’s one of the only shows that I can reliably say stayed true to its core throughout its run, right down to the finale. The ending was heavy, serious, less humorous than the other episodes, and achingly sad. It gives you no chance to escape reality, yet there is a teeny-tiny bit of hopefulness as it ends—just enough to keep you going. But be prepared if you watch the show, because it’s sure to leave a cloud above your head for quite a while. 4. Sense8 © Netflix Saying goodbye to Sense8 was hard. In a world of shows that make half-hearted attempts at representation, buried under overused stereotypes and convenient characterizations, Sense8 was a breath of fresh air. A vibrant world that was as dangerous as it was alluring. I’ll admit the two-hour series finale might not be the same emotional experience for people who watched the show after it had finally ended, than it was for those of us who waited with baited breath for an ending, any ending, after Netflix cancelled the show on a cliffhanger. Still, it was a satisfying finale that helped tie up loose ends and, though we were left aching for more, sealed the space the show had carved in its viewers' hearts. Did these series endings wreck you as much as they wrecked us? Have any other recommendations you think should’ve been on here? Tell us in the comments below! View the full article
  17. India is one of those countries that has been crippled by the second wave of the novel Coronavirus. These times are testing for each one of us as we have been seeing how people are losing their lives because of the pandemic. There are people who are trying to help the situation get better. We have doctors, police, and other essential health workers who are working round the clock to ensure our safety. The latest example of this is the lady Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) who is working even though she is pregnant at the moment. Yes, you heard it right. A video of a pregnant Deputy Superintendent of Police working on the busy streets and appealing to people to follow lockdown guidelines has been doing rounds on social media. DSP Shilpa Sahu came out on road to create awareness as she cannot sit back at home given the current circumstances. Here’s the video: छत्तीसगढ़: पांच माह की गर्भवती DSP शिल्पा साहू सड़क पर उतरीं, चिलचिलाती धूप में राहगीरों से कोरोना गाइडलाइन का कराया पालन#chhattisgarhfightscorona #CoronaSecondWave #ShilpaSahu @CG_Police pic.twitter.com/GQ8YcTXvWE — रवि प्रताप तिवारी (@ravi7live) April 21, 2021 “The coronavirus is spreading rapidly in the country. With an aim to control the spread, a lockdown has been imposed in the Dantewada district. We are on the roads to ensure people follow the protocols," the Deputy superintendent of police (DSP) said on Tuesday. “We are outside to ensure the safety of people. We urge them to stay inside and not venture outside without any valid reason. If we are on the streets for the sake of your (people's) safety, you should also be at home for your safety," she said. Earlier, Shilpa had been involved in anti-Maoists operations leading a team of Danteshwari Fighters- a group of women commandoes. After her pregnancy, she took a break from the field operations. Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel has also praised her for setting an example for others. “Shilpa Sahu is an inspiration during these difficult times of COVID-19 pandemic. She is out on the street despite being pregnant and taking to task all those who are violating covid guidelines," Baghel said. People are saluting her for her passion for her work despite being pregnant. © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter It’s high time people understand the concept of lockdown and social distancing as people like Shilpa Sahu are out on roads for our safety.

  18. There are two kinds of men in the world. First, are the Harshvarrdhan Kapoor types who look effortlessly dapper, always very together and function out of an organised wardrobe. The second are most of us, for whom keeping things organised is just not our thing. But the secret to effortless style isn’t just cool clothes and a knack to putting a look together, it actually is how you look after your clothes. After all, it takes time, money and effort to build a solid wardrobe and maintaining it well can help you get the value for your money. And since we are homebound and have much time on hand, plus most of us may or may not be willing to buy anything new, we might as well consider buying things that will help us reorganize our closet. Here's a gentleman’s guide to organising his wardrobe this quarantine season. 1. Declutter, Organise & HangBring the entire pile of clothes out of your closet and start by getting rid of what’s not serving you anymore. Doesn’t matter whether that checkered shirt was gifted to you by your ex but if it no longer fits you, get rid of it and the sentiments attached to it. Done decluttering, get on with organising your clothes by their functionality or colour. Put your formals that you would wear to the office together, followed by your casuals, your party wear and so on. Once done organising, start hanging your clothes — you may choose to hang the ones in similar colour together — in hangers that offer good support. Pro tip: Every time you take a shirt or pair of trousers off a hanger, move that hanger to the front to find hangers handy when you need them next, and save your closet from getting cramped. __ECOMPRODUCT__1426__ 2. Hang Your Belt And Ties Separately It is sometimes a tough task to roll or fold every tie, a handkerchief or a belt and keep it neatly after every use. Also, it takes up a whole drawer in the wardrobe which could have been used otherwise. Consider investing in a separate hanger with multiple holders to keep your ties and belts safe and handy. __ECOMPRODUCT__1427__ 3. Use Baskets To Keep Socks And Underpants Your wardrobe drawer isn’t the only place that’s supposed to endure the weight of your stack of socks and underwear. Try adding a few wooden baskets to your closet to keep your underpants, socks, accessories, toiletries safe and separate. Consider a bamboo basket that’s stylish and eco-friendly. __ECOMPRODUCT__1428__ 4. Keep A Laundry Basket HandySteer clear of the waft of stench of used clothes emanating from your closet. Invest in a chic looking laundry bin or two to dump your used clothes and keep your house prim and tidy. Easy-in-storage and big on space, laundry baskets can come in handy to store all your loungewear at one place as well, your official quarantine uniform right now. __ECOMPRODUCT__1429__ 5. Invest In A Shoe Care KitLet’s admit it, building a nice shoedrobe can cost you a bomb. And when it comes to looking dapper, your shoes say as much about you as your clothes, and nothing is more off-putting than dirty, worn-out shoes. Invest in a nice shoe care kit, and dedicate a weekend to cleaning your shoes and store them properly in boxes. Nobody is stepping out anyway! Consider this kit that has odor control spray, a shoe cream, shining cloth, wipes, glower, and a universal cleaner and a shoehorn to keep all your expensive shoes looking spanking clean and in mint condition. __ECOMPRODUCT__1430__ 6. Insect Repellent To Keep Moths At BayInsects, termites and moths like to breed in dark and dusty corners, and a wardrobe that’s remained untouched for months can be a haven for such insects. You sure don’t wanna wake up one day to a nightmare of having to replace most of your go-to pieces, courtesy your wardrobe being infested with insects. Investing in wardrobe fresheners or natural insect repellents will stand you in good stead and can help you save a lot of future damage. __ECOMPRODUCT__1431__ The BottomlineOrganising your wardrobe may help you save money and time. As they say, out of sight is out of mind. When everything is visible to your eyes and looks well-maintained, chances of you accessing and wearing your clothes is high and buying new ones is low. So, now you know what to do this weekend, and while you are at it, we wish you hit the jackpot. View the full article
  19. Google Earth has partnered with NASA, the U.S. Geological Survey, the EU’s Copernicus Climate Change Service, and Carnegie Mellon University’s CREATE Lab to show time-lapse images of Earth’s Surface. Over 24 million images of the planet’s surface taken over 37 years show how climate change has affected the earth’s surface. © Google “We can objectively see global warming with our own eyes,” said Rebecca Moore, director of Google Earth. "We hope that this can ground everyone in an objective, common understanding of what's actually happening on the planet, and inspire action." The feature is now available for everyone to view where one needs to launch Google Earth and click on the Voyager tab. You can then look at places of interest or check out curated tours that show forest change, urban growth, warming temperatures, and receding lakes. If you want to see a brief example, check out the video below: Here’s another example of a time-lapse that shows the changing shores of Cape Cod: © Google Earth Google also released 800 time-lapse videos of different locations around the planet which you can download for free. The company aims to have these time-lapse videos used by teachers, nonprofits, policymaker and others to show how the geography of Earth has been changing by climate change. While Google has released time-lapse images in the past, this is time the first time it is offering a 3D time-lapse of the Earth’s geological changes. If you’ve ever wanted to see a visual representation of how humans have been destroying the Earth’s environment, have a look at Google’s time-lapse as it will leave you shocked. The feature shows pictures from 1985 all the way up to the present day and shows how our landscapes have changed over time. View the full article
  20. Saif Ali Khan's son Ibrahim Ali's appearances have gone under the radar, but never to his detriment. He has a massive fan following and despite the fact that he still hasn't ventured into Bollywood, his fans never fail to shower him with all the attention. Just recently, Ibrahim was seen flaunting his 8-pack abs wearing designer Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. As soon as the picture went live, the audience was in complete awe of Ibrahim's charismatic looks. © Instagram/Ibrahim Ali By this point, everyone knows that Ibrahim's sartorial game is quite notice-worthy. He has piqued our interest several times wearing sneakers that were a good lesson to understand the colour wheel and then again when he stepped out wearing playful blood-red pants. © Viral Bhayani He was seen at Mumbai airport yet again, as he was heading back home from a vacation with his family. While his whole outfit was super laid-back, the sneakers here were inarguably the best kind of pair to go with the look. Wondering which ones are these? Take a good look below. © Nike © Nike Ibrahim can be seen wearing Nike Air Force 1 '07 sneakers. These sneakers come with a timeless design and simple colourways. The pair is made with white leather upper. Furthermore, it comes with a black swoosh and sits on the famous air-cushioned sole. Coming to its price, these sneakers seem to be an affordable choice. These cost almost Rs 7,135, which isn't such a bad deal, given the number of expensive sneakers we have seen of late. © Viral Bhayani As for the rest of the details, Ibrahim wore a basic black T-shirt again by Nike and coupled it with grey joggers. Now, this seems like a perfect outfit, especially when you are taking a long flight. A pair of joggers are quite a comfortable choice. The sneakers here added more appeal to his look, without a doubt. We also like the way he has used his headphones here. The subtle tone paired well with his look. That, with a printed mask, is a wise fashion choice. In all, there's no doubt that Ibrahim can give some big celebrities a run for their money with his style statement. Way to go!

  21. It’s not something that we don’t know already as Bollywood has become a machine to churn out only remakes and people have been bashing the industry for its lack of originality. Where most of the Bollywood celebs chose to stay mum on this practice, Badhaai Ho actor Gajraj Rao took a sarcastic dig at the situation while praising the Malayalam film, Joji. Joji draws inspiration from Macbeth by William Shakespeare and features Fahadh Faasil, Baburaj, Shammi Thilakan, Alistair Alex, Unnimaya Prasad Basil Joseph, and Sunny PN in important roles. Joji has premiered on April 7 on Amazon Prime Video. After watching the movie, Gajraj Rao couldn’t help but praise Fahadh’s pathbreaking performance in the movie. He didn’t stop at just praising him but also took a dig at Hindi cinema for their obsession with marketing campaigns, soulless remakes, and weekend box office collections. In his note, Gajraj wrote, “Dear Dileesh Pothan and other Malayalam filmmakers (especially Fahadh Faasil & Friends), I recently watched ‘Joji’ and I’m sorry to say this, but I have a bone to pick with all of you. Enough is enough. It is not fair that you are constantly coming up with original ideas and executing them with utmost sincerity, making actually good cinema. You need to learn a thing or two from other regional cinemas, and especially us here in Hindi. You need to do some mediocre work also. Where are the tiring marketing campaigns and promotions? Where are the soulless remakes? Where is the obsession with weekend box office collections? This is too much.” Here’s his post: View this post on Instagram It’s like he stole our thoughts and it does need some guts. Not just us, people who follow the actor were also impressed by his thoughts on Bollywood cinema and appreciated his letter that he wrote. © Gajraj Rao Instagram © Gajraj Rao Instagram © Gajraj Rao Instagram We completely agree with him.

  23. Chunky Panday needs no introduction. He shot to stardom with his Bollywood debut movie Aag Hi Aag in 1987 and followed it up with major hits such as Paap Ki Duniya (1988), Tezaab (1989), and Aakhen (1993). But, his success was short-lived. In fact, Chunky Panday has seen quite a few highs and drastic lows in his career. While he started off as a solo hero in the 80s, he soon transitioned to a second lead. He even tried his luck in Bangladeshi movies but failed, and couldn’t sustain his career. He returned to Bollywood but for the lack of leading roles, he took up comic roles. But it was in Begum Jaan that we saw him nail a negative role. He, then, showcased a completely different side of himself when he made his digital debut with Abhay 2. Chunky’s character is that of an ordinary man by day, a family man by evening, and a killer by night. “I have never played anything like it. My character is a normal-looking guy, but not when it comes to finding ways to feed his cannibal instinct. Looks can be deceptive indeed! The promo is just a glimpse, the series is set to bring to the forefront ruthless crime stories. It will give you the chills, definitely,” Chunky Panday said in one of the interviews. But today, we are taking you back to the time when he made his dream debut in Bollywood. We stumbled upon an old photoshoot that he did with a popular magazine. He is seen flexing his muscles and we also see him wearing those old-school shorts. He is also seen posing with dumbbells and looks completely unrecognisable in these photos. We are rubbing our eyes in disbelief. © Lehren © Lehren © Lehren © Lehren © Lehren © Lehren In an interview with Hindustan Times, he talked about his disappearance from Bollywood and said that he doesn’t blame anyone for it. “Failure is quite easy to handle because no one is looking at you. Success is difficult to keep and not everyone could handle it. I could not keep my success. I had such a great run. By 93-94, it all came to an end and I had to go to Bangladesh and work there. Talent will always want to work,” said Chunky. He added, “It is the choices you make, all actors go through highs and lows. Even God cannot tell which film will work. In showbiz, so much success and fame come your way, and then it passes on to someone else. I remember Govinda made his debut in 1986 and I started my career in 1987. There was Aamir Khan in 1988, Salman in 1989, Shah Rukh in 1990, and Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar in the next two years. It just didn’t stop, there was a new hero every year. Your attention gets taken away, but this is how the world works, people want variety.” We wish Chunky gets more roles in the future as we all know he has the ability to entertain his audience with his power-packed performances.

  24. A lottery seller from Kerala has been getting a lot of praises online for her recent act of honesty. Smija K Mohan, a lottery vendor from Kochi, recently delivered the winning bumper ticket of Rs 6 Crore to its buyer, Chandran. Smija, personally, drove down to the buyer, Chandran’s house to deliver the bumper ticket worth Rs 6 crore. The story of this lottery agent Smija from Kerala is so inspiring! Rs.6cr prize came to the ticket she'd only promised to give someone over the phone but had not yet delivered. After learning about the 1st prize, she went & delivered it as promised! A huge salute to her honesty! pic.twitter.com/m0RjrwB3tK — Rijo M John, PhD (@RijoMJohn) March 23, 2021 Smija, 37, told The New Indian Express, “It was Sunday and our regulars were not around.’ As a result, she had around 12 unsold bumper tickets. Following which, she texted about the unsold tickets in a WhatsApp group of her regular ticket buyers. "However, no one was willing to buy the entire 12. It was then that I contacted Chandran Chettan. He asked me to send the picture of the tickets and called me back with the numbers of his choice," she said. As soon as she was informed about the winning numbers, she decided to deliver the winning ticket to Chandran as soon as possible. © BCCL "After the story about me handing over the winning ticket to Chandran Chettan broke, I have been receiving calls praising my honesty. However, people don’t understand that in this business, that’s all that matters. We have to be honest since we are being sustained by the hard-earned money customers pay to buy the tickets," she said. The 37-year-old who is a mother of two hasn’t had it easy for herself. “Both me and my husband had been working with the government press at Kakkanad. We had begun the business in 2011 and had five employees. However, later on, after we lost our jobs with the press we decided to run the business by ourselves,” she said. © Twitter The situation worsened when, “Covid struck and we had to lay off the staff and do the selling all by ourselves. We were hit by another googly when my mother was diagnosed with cancer and that too in Covid times. However, unlike what’s being reported, my youngest who had been ill no longer suffers from any illness and has recuperated.” Though she needed the money, what makes Smija’s story stand out is her honesty. At a time when a lot of people are struggling to make ends meet, Smija’s honesty is certainly an inspiration for many View the full article
  25. In another example of entitled Indian men speaking on women’s bodies, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) candidate, Anchor Dindigul Leoni made sexist and fatphobic comments during a campaign meeting, comparing women to cows and saying that drinking the milk of foreign cows has made them fat and “like a barrel” instead of the figure 8. .@KanimozhiDMK Madame please get rid of womanizers like Dindigul Leoni, Vairamuthu etc in your party before you talk about women's safety.. pic.twitter.com/cVkGCQ8eGi — Vishwatma 🇮🇳 (@HLKodo) March 24, 2021 “You know, there are many types of cows. On farms, you would have seen foreign cows. People use a milking machine for foreign cows. A person will switch on the machine and 40 litres of milk will come out in an hour. By drinking that milk, all our women have become fat like a balloon,” Dindigul Leoni said in the video, as reported by the Indian Express. “Earlier, a woman’s figure looked like the number 8. They could carry children on their hips. But now, if they hold a child, it slips away because they have become like a barrel. All our children have also become fat.” This is only days after Uttarakhand CM made his comments questioning the values of women who wear ripped jeans, but this new development definitely takes the cake if making sexist remarks against women was a competition. Of course, the internet was furious at what he said. Utterly distasteful. It is not just the words uttered in a campaign speech but the mind that harbours the thoughts and forms these words that are distressing. ‘Women’s hips becoming like barrels': Dindigul Leoni's sexist remark at DMK campaign https://t.co/oi3bOKk6Lv — K S Narendran (@NarendranKs) March 25, 2021So Dindigul Leoni made that sexist jibe while campaigning for DMK's environment wing Secretary Karthikeya Sivasenathipathi.
