  1. Not everyone is a fan of comedy-drama, there are some of us who live on shows which knock the wind out of us with their unimaginable storyline. We long for plots that keep us on the edge of our couch, for well-charted out characters that keep our eyes glued to the screen, and the twists that keep us coming back for more, again and again. This sounds like the perfect plan for the long weekend to us. You know, the ones who prefer to stay at home and chill, rather than leave the comforts of our home to appear. If you are just like us, and totally believe in taking your mind for a spin when given the chance, then these 5 thrilling web series will prove to be the best way of spending the long weekend. 1. Sense8 - Netflix This is one hell of a series, that's wrapped in the most meaty plot. The story follows the lives of eight strangers (Sensates) who suddenly begin to experience each other's lives through the power of telepathy. Each one of them is located in a different city around the world, but their lives are connected to a point where they can not only read each other's thoughts but can also access each other's knowledge, language and skills. The gripping story unveils the many dangers they are set to face, and if or how they fight their demons. 2. Absentia - Prime Video The journey of an FBI agent who was on an official mission to hunt down a notorious serious killer, but goes missing instead. When she is found after six years she doesn't remember any details about the time she was gone. From the loss of her memory to finding herself wound up in a new series of murders, this quick-paced drama manages to keep you on your toes at all times. Your guesses at solving the mystery, and putting the pieces of the puzzle together, will always fail. Yet, you'll find yourself moving on to the next episode. 3. Altered Carbon - Netflix Set in the far away future, this story is sure to test your brain cells and spike up your endorphin levels. The basic premise of the story is that people's consciences have been downloaded to form stacks, which can be shifted to new bodies or “sleeves”. The first season begins with Takeshi Kovacs, a former U.N. soldier, resurfacing in a different sleeve of a private investigator, to solve the murder of the man who hires him. The fascinating plot promises solid rising action, while the actors look promising in their on-screen characters. However, it's the intricacies of the murder mystery that promises you a ride of a lifetime. 4. Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan - Prime Video Another thriller that has the audience hooked is 'Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan' which is based on the fictional characters from 'Ryanverse'. The series opens with Ryan, a CIA analyst, who gets caught in the tricky ways of fate and duty and is launched on a personal escapade to track down a dangerous Islamic terrorist. The cast is marvellous, the story is gripping, but it is the titular character and his amaze-balls ways that steal the show. 5. Dark This story might be hard to watch, but we promise you that it's even more difficult to stop watching. Shot in German, and in a gloomy setting which underlines its title, the story traces the lives of people living in the small town of Winden. The plot is full of cheating spouses, secrets, gruesome killings, and dead birds falling from the sky. The perpetual darkness is ominous of the many hidden mysteries, that are to unravel the ugly deeds of the last three generations. Get ready for a mind-boggling ride with these shows. We suggest keeping some snacks and good company handy while watching these.
  2. A slew of social issues have found millennial voices, but mental health awareness still remains a taboo of sorts and Bollywood superstar Deepika Padukone is out to change exactly that. The actress, who has always broken the glass ceiling by coming out in the open about her own troubles with depression, once again pledged support to the cause on the occasion of World Mental Health Day, on Wednesday. “In 2014, I was diagnosed with clinical depression. But, in India, 90% of people who suffer from depression don't seek help,” she said in a video shared on her Twitter account. “Depression is like any other illness that requires intervention.” In her message, she also normalised mental health disorders and urged patients to share their stories using the #NotAshamed hashtag. #NotAshamed pic.twitter.com/DgewpgBpn5 — Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) October 10, 2018 A study conducted by the World Health Organization in 2015 showed that one in five Indians may suffer from depression in their lifetime, which is equivalent to 20 crore people. Due to the stigma associated with mental illness, a lack of awareness, and limited access to professional help, only 10-12 per cent of these sufferers will seek help. Another study, carried out by Assocham last year, showed that clinical depression has risen by around 50 per cent in the last eight years. It does not make discernible urban-rural demographic differences and also states that most people who commit suicide are below the age of 44. It adds that 42.5 per cent of employees in the Indian private sector are afflicted with general anxiety disorder or depression, as compared to government employees. A private sector employee in India works for a minimum of 48-50 hours a week when compared to 33 hours a week in the UK and 40 hours a week in the US. In addition, the pay in these developed countries is almost six times more even after deducting the indexing prices and cost of living. According to 'Mental Health: TLLLF National Survey Report 2018,' commissioned by The Live Love Laugh Foundation (TLLLF), more than 75 percent of participants stated they would always feel sympathetic towards mental health patients. In the same vein though, they also exhibited feelings of fear (14 per cent would always be fearful), hatred (28 per cent feel hatred sometimes or always), and anger (43 per cent feel angry sometimes or always) towards people with mental illness. More than a quarter admitted that they would always be 'indifferent' towards people with mental illness. These admissions indicate the prevalent stigma in society, which when clubbed with an acute shortage of mental health specialists, presents the grim reality of the situation in India. The death of the globe-trotting, fine-dining Anthony Bourdain – he committed suicide in a Paris hotel room earlier this year – brought to fore our failings on a global level as well. Is there a solution, then? Diverse programmes and legislation, including the Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram and the Mental Health Care Act, could prove to be steps in the right direction for patients in India. But, as Harvard professors Vikram Patel and Shekhar Saxena write in their Indian Express column, proper implementation would require a genuine partnership of a diverse range of groups. From the mental health and development communities to policymakers and civil society, one and all need to come together to transform mental health across the country.

  3. Oh, Mark, you never learn, do you? You know what's worse than heartbreak? Getting spoilers about a movie that you were so eagerly looking forward to. That shit hurts, and if it's a movie like 'Avengers', then that's the worst thing in the world, don't even fight me on that. But, looks like Mark Ruffalo is a sadist who likes to watch people suffer, or maybe he's just a little confused and doesn't know when to shut up. We all know Mark and Tom Holland's long history of accidentally spoiling so many Marvel movies, but Mark one-upped Tom by literally spoiling 'Thor: Ragnarok' by being on Instagram Live during its premiere. Oh, Mark. (yes, this will be a phrase that's repeated throughout) And how can we forget the time, when during an interview, Mark said this about 'Avengers: Infinity War' - “Wait till you see the next one, everybody dies.” Oh, Mark. Don Cheadle's face says it all. The best thing about Mark, though, is that he at least he tries to cover up his mistakes and that's what he tried to this time as well. But, since he doesn't think before speaking about multimillion-dollar movies, he obviously doesn't think before tweeting about it as well. .@JimmyFallon, I trust that you will cut my spoiler slip on the show tonight. That was “off the record” homey. Please don't get me in trouble with Marvel (Barry) again. DM me back. M — Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) October 5, 2018 Yes, tweeting about your goof-up for the world to see, especially the people who can fire you. Oh, Mark. Apparently, this is the clip in question. I LOVE YOU @MarkRuffalo WITH OR WITHOUT SPOILERS #FallonTonight pic.twitter.com/ZSkPJfdp2v — ale ︽âµï¸½ (@bannerscaptain) October 6, 2018 Jimmy Fallon also decided to keep the joke going and replied with this. Dude, it's too late - already sent the final show to Burbank for air. Are you sure you're gonna be in trouble? We could maybe bleep it out. What is “DM”? https://t.co/GMds1hGO8X — jimmy fallon (@jimmyfallon) October 5, 2018 But, it was too late. The Russo brothers got to know about it before Mark could fix it, and well, now you know the reason if The Hulk does not show up in the next Avengers movie. Mark, you're fired. — Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) October 6, 2018 I have one question – (Don't come at me with 'it's a joke', I know that already, thank you) Oh, Mark. Guys... can we talk about this? https://t.co/PYe56UiUgO — Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) October 7, 2018 Now, I just can't wait for Mark Ruffalo to accidentally reveal the title of the movie. Do it already, man, we're all waiting, we know you want to!
  4. The NBA belongs to the USA but its popularity is pretty big across the globe. Be it Asia, Africa or Europe, basketball's popularity has only gone up thanks to the reach of the league. So, it's hardly a surprise that international players have come up through the ranks and distinguished themselves at the top level. The NBA has had its own share of big international names, some of whom have carved out their own legacy. Not only did they stand toe to toe with their American counterparts, but also made the home fans accept them as their own. © Getty So who are these guys? Here's a look at five such individuals who have left their legacy in the world's biggest basketball league: 1. Dirk Nowitzki © Getty Hailing from Germany, this giant has been around for a while. Since 1998 till date, the man has been representing the Dallas Mavericks with distinction. He was named the Most Valuable Player of the season in 2007 and was also the NBA champion in 2011. Blessed with speed and reach, he continues to be a lethal force on the court and the fans love him for it. 2. Yao Ming © Getty Standing at 7 feet and 6 inches tall, the man from China represented the Houston Rockets between 2002 and 2011. He has also been a part of the All-Star team on eight occasions, which is a great achievement in itself. Yao had an average of 19 points per game in a career that saw him accumulate 9247 points. With 4494 rebounds and 920 blocks, he was Asia's pride in the NBA and had a distinguished career. 3. Steve Nash © Getty A point guard, this Canadian player has represented the Phoenix Suns, the Dallas Mavericks and the Los Angeles Lakers in a career spanning over two decades (from 1996 to 2015). Born in South Africa, Steve came to Canada as a toddler and that's where his basketball career really took off. Part of the All-Star team on 8 occasions, Steve had 17,387 points to his credit and had the most assists in as many as 5 seasons. 4. Manu Ginobili © Getty The Argentine was a part of the San Antonio Spurs from 2002 to 2018. He won 4 championships with them and was also a part of the All-Star team in 2005 & 2011. He became one of the only two players to have won a EuroLeague title, an NBA championship, and a gold medal at the 2004 Olympics. Clearly a man of records, he played his entire career for the Spurs. Manu Ginobili, along with his teammates Tim Duncan and Tony Parker were famously known as the “Big Three”. 5. Pau Gasol © Getty Since 2001, the Spaniard has been a part of Memphis Grizzlies, Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls. Since 2016, he's associated with San Antonio Spurs. In 2009 and 2010 he was the NBA champion with LA Lakers and also a 6-time NBA All-Star. The man was named Rookie of the Year in 2002, becoming the first non-American player to win the prestigious award. His longest stint was with the Grizzlies from 2001 to 2008. His older brother Marc Gasol is also in the NBA. These guys were so good in their game that when we look back on their careers, the fact that they were international players never occurs to us. Not that it would matter, but in all fairness, they are just as a much part of the NBA as the American players. In fact, having them has made the NBA even more interesting to watch and for that, we are deeply grateful to them.
  5. The drama in 'Bigg Boss 12' has started unfolding now layer by layer. The commoners and the celebrities are now getting along and clashing in equal measures and one 'jodi' that has surprised everyone with their strength is that of Deepak Thakur and Urvashi Vani. She is a self-proclaimed fan of Deepak, who sang 'Gangs Of Wasseypur' songs as she declared her dedication towards him when they entered the show. © Colors However, it turns out that the woman is dating a guy called Shubham Gupta in real life. They seem to be in a very happy relationship and pictures of the couple have been going viral on the internet right now. © Twitter Also, turns out Shubham and Urvashi are a huge SRK fan, so the couple decided to recreate a few images from his movies as well. © Twitter Urvashi is winning hearts with her camaraderie with the celebrities and her brutal honesty in the game. However, it is ironical if the honest contestant is actually lying about her relationship status in real life.
  6. Okay, let's be real, people were excited for the movie 'Venom' but not that excited. Even the trailers didn't help with building up the hype and that's quite unfortunate, to be honest. Actually, the most I've heard about the movie was when everyone was thirsting after Venom. Yes, the internet is a weird place. But, even though Tom Hardy was successful in making everyone horny in his alien space suit, he still wasn't able to save the movie, and the first reactions of 'Venom' are proving just that. Just a disclaimer, there are no spoilers ahead, just tweets by people who've already seen the movie and who are talking about it without giving away any plot points. So, it's like 14 years too late? Social embargo for #Venom is up. I talk about this a lot in my review but this is a movie that somehow slipped through a wormhole from 2004. That's my biggest take. It's a movie that spilled from the pre-MCU era through a crack in time and space. — The Mothmegð NYCC (@rustypolished) October 2, 2018 Well, this isn't totally negative. Action-sequences and Eddie and Venom's odd relationship are the highlights of #Venom but if Sony wants to move forward with a universe, it needs to just keep the few parts that work and scrap the large portion which does t. — Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) October 2, 2018 Poor Michelle Williams. She did the best she could with what she was given, I think. https://t.co/fyK1gsmTvo — Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) October 2, 2018 Finally, a good reaction! So #Venom. I went in fearing the worst, BUT I actually liked it quite a bit more than I thought I would. I still wish it was rated R, but it seems like they set up something to cross over into Spider-Man's movies, and it was funnier than I imagined. — ð»ashleyð (@AshleyEsqueda) October 2, 2018 And, we're back. Sorry to say that #Venom is pretty much a complete failure - a tonal mess that feels 15 years old, ignoring the storytelling strides that the superhero genre has made in recent years. A few fun Venom-centric moments aside, it has nearly nothing to offer. Don't get your hopes up. — Tom Horrorgensen (@Tom_Jorgensen) October 2, 2018 This is harsh. In regards to #Venom, I haven't felt that way walking out of a superhero movie since Green Lantern. — Joshua Yehlblazer (@JoshuaYehl) October 3, 2018 So, Tom Hardy is the saving grace? @JimmytotheO had a good time with @VenomMovie. While it has its flaws, he calls it “fast paced, funny and sometimes thrilling...” Plus “Tom Hardy is pretty phenomenal.” Full review soon! pic.twitter.com/CKYdLPRyAL — JoBlo.com (@joblocom) October 2, 2018 So much sarcasm, love it! You mean to tell me a movie about a Spider-Man villain without Spider-Man and made outside the context of the Marvel Universe simply as a money grab isn't good? Stunning. #venom — Robin Lundberg (@robinlundberg) October 2, 2018 I haven't even seen the movie, but I totally get her point. It's...not a complete disaster? At least I was never mad watching it? But it is an excruciatingly surreal experience. The humor, the story beats, everything right down to the Eminem theme song feels like it emerged Kimmy Schmidt style from a sealed off early 00s bunker. — The Mothmegð NYCC (@rustypolished) October 2, 2018 Well, after all, it is Tom Hardy. Tom Hardy's performance in #Venom is either Johnny Depp in the first PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN or Chris Klein in STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI. Either way, it's not boring. — Scott Mendelson (@ScottMendelson) October 2, 2018 Very neutral. Not sure if Tom Hardy's weirdness sabotaged #Venom or saved it, but it has a self-aware cartoonishness, especially in its latter half. It's not "good," but it's better than expected. Doesn't feel like an R-rated film, am guessing the deleted 40min is just Hardy clowning around. — Scott Mendelson (@ScottMendelson) October 2, 2018 Almost every review summed up in one sentence – “It wasn't as bad as I expected it to be.” #Venom wasn't as bad as everyone was saying it was going to be. Tom Hardy is and always will be a great actor, and I laughed a lot — but I'm not sure whether that was intentional or not. Post-credit scene is 𥠗 Beatrice Verhoeven (@bverhoev) October 2, 2018 The first person who liked it a lot. #Venom was only the best superhero movie I've seen in along while. It's refreshing to see a superhero film that wasn't bogged down by years of movies and characters. Def a worth see. Sony really gave it their all. — Aaron- Certified Rotten (@Bizarnage) October 2, 2018 Okay then. Significant chunks of #Venom don't work *at all* but there is some serious charm to the Eddie/Venom relationship. Not sure I had the intended reactions to some scenes but fun is fun - even when it's totally ridiculous, right? It's too bad they didn't go for the R rating though. — Deweystein's Monster (@PNemiroff) October 2, 2018 Okay, this is my favourite tweet from all of these. #Venom is like a buddy comedy in which one of the buddies has to prevent the other from biting people's heads off, which is another way of saying I liked it. — Michael Nordine (@slowbeard) October 2, 2018
  7. The festive season is right here and that's the auspicious time when most of us Indians invest our hard-earned money into buying a car or other electronics. And if you are one of those browsing through multiple car brochures to get the most for your buck, we've got some news for you – Skoda has launched a limited edition festive collection, the Skoda Rapid Onyx. The limited edition car is a more powerful, enigmatic and stylish new upgrade to their Skoda Rapid. Upgraded Interiors Available in two colours, the new Lapiz Blue and Candy White, the limited edition Onyx boasts of a stylish and supersport flat-bottom steering with black stitching as opposed to the regular round one. The steering wheel comes with audio control buttons for its smart touchscreen infotainment system. The state-of-the-art 6.5-inch infotainment system comes with a Smartlink technology that supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink. Additional features include adjustable dual rear AC vents, rear windscreen sunblind, scuff plates with RAPID inscription, black waste bin and 12 V power socket in front and rear console. Adding more luxury and comfort to their popular running sedan, the interiors include beige perforated upholstery with a dual-tone Ebony-Sand interior theme. Upgraded Exteriors The exteriors include automatic projector headlamps with black inserts and LED daytime running lights, R16 chubby black alloy wheels. The car flaunts a stylish black grille with chrome surround, 16-inch alloy wheels with identical bolt covers, glossy black exterior mirrors, glossy black décor on the B-pillars, as well as black body side moulding and trunk lip garnish. Additional Safety The safety features too have received an upgrade with the Onyx. They include dual airbags, Hill Hold control, Anti-Lock Braking System and Electronic Stability Control. The upgraded Anti-theft alarm comes with an interior monitoring option. Skoda Powering Through The new Skoda Rapid Onyx is available in two variants – the 1.5-litre TDI diesel engine and a 1.6-litre petrol engine. While the 1.5-litre TDI diesel motor develops respective power and a torque output of 109 bhp and 250 Nm, the 1.6-litre petrol makes 104 bhp of power along with a peak torque of 153Nm. The new Skoda Rapid Onyx is priced at Rs 9.75 Lakhs in India.
  8. Apart from the yearly updates on the company's latest Laptop, Surface Pro and Studio devices, Microsoft also announced on the most interesting Bluetooth headphones. The headphones come in light grey and will be available to buy for $350 (Approx Rs 25,000). © Microsoft The Surface headphones come only in one colour similar to the Surface products and will be available only in the U.S. this December. The headphones are slated to compete with Bose's QC 35 ii and Sony's 1000X M3 headphones. The Microsoft headphones not only offer premium sound but also has a unique feature i.e. adjustable noise cancellation. Users can control the degree of noise cancellation by turning the dial on the left ear cup. This will enable users to let in outside noise according to their own preferences. The dial on the right ear cup can be used to adjust the volume which is probably the most convenient way to use when compared to other headphones in the same category. © Microsoft The headphones are of course wireless that supports Bluetooth 5.0 but can also be connected to a device using the detachable 3.5mm cable. It uses a USB Type C port for charging which means it will juice up at a faster pace. The Surface Headphones also have support for a digital voice assistant i.e. 'Cortana'. Users will be able to give out hands-free voice commands by simply saying “Hey Cortana”. “They slip comfortably over your ears to surround you with spectacular sound quality and 13 levels of ambient noise control,” Microsoft's press release says. “Designed with collaboration in mind, there are 2 beam-forming microphones on each ear cup, 8 microphones in total, all helping you focus on the sounds you want to capture allowing for excellent call experiences.” The earcups also have touch control which can be used for playing/pausing music and skipping tracks. Microsoft says that the Surface Headphones can last up to 15 hours on a single charge (wireless) and 50 hours when using the detachable 3.5mm cable.
  9. When you're trying to seek out a woman you fancy, you cannot expect them to simply fall into your lap, because you've got the looks for it or enough bank balance to pamper her with. While we all feel great when we come to know someone loves us, women usually like to go a step further to size up the compatibility they share with the other person. Listed below are 10 such habits or personality traits that every woman usually looks for and appreciates in a man: 1. Thoughtful Mannerisms © Dharma Productions One of the things women notice very early on during their interactions with a man, are his mannerisms. By that, we don't just mean things like holding the door for her or paying attention to her when she speaks, those are basic etiquettes anyone should follow. But an easy trace of thoughtfulness and kindness in a man's mannerisms (that aren't merely pretentious), always catch a woman's attention. 2. Willingness To Mend Things In the present times of easy availability and abundant Chinese goods around us, thoughts of ditching something when it stops working and replacing it with a new one, come quick and easy. But women aren't a fan of the idea, until it becomes absolutely necessary. Women love it when men show signs of being willing to fix things, rather than abandoning them, the very first chance they get. © Dharma Productions 3. Holding The Pace Most people are unaware of the fact that women really appreciate it when a man consciously makes an effort to hold the pace during conversations or even when they are simply walking together. Rushing a conversation, meeting or constantly walking a few steps ahead of her seems a bit crude. 4. Respecting Time Yeah, it's a no-brainer, and yet half of you fail to follow this simple rule. Punctuality in every aspect of your personal and professional life is a major turn on for women. Your respect for time comes across as an indication of meticulousness and thinking ahead of time, which women absolutely admire in a man. © Jhoom Jhoom Productions 5. Positive Vibes You may think it isn't as important, but trust us when we say that your whole game will change if a woman gets attracted to your vibe before anything else. Women love men who make them feel welcome and calm. They dig men who exude positivity in the way they look at things. Your vibes can be a total game changer for you. 6. Passion & Discipline Having a passion that's close to your heart and making it a point to follow up on it, is something every woman seeks in a man. Nobody wants a man who only works, eats, sleeps and repeats it all over again, day in and day out. So, whether it's a hobby you're passionate about or it's gymming that makes you happy, following it with a discipline will surely make her admire you all the more. © Sunshine Pictures 7. A Vision For The Future Goes without saying, but women find men with a vision for the future extremely attractive. Women directly connect it to the fact that the man is dependable and can be trusted, not only with her heart but her own visions for the future, both personally and professionally. Men with a plan come across as sincere, invested and action-oriented, and women totally love that. 8. Eating Often & Eating Right Women love food. Well, mostly. Regardless of whether they are into cooking or not, women enjoy the company of good friends and delicious food at all times. So be assured, that she'll have her eyes on you when you take your call on food. If you can cook it, superb, that's a winner right there. If not, she'll score you on how much you appreciate good food when you taste it. © Viacom 18 Motion Pictures 9. Regard For Money & Finances This is something you feel we'd rather not mention, but this happens to be an important factor for women. If you're into the habit of taking care of your finances and closely monitoring your expenses and investments, while you indulge in a fair share of goodness that money provides, then that's going to be appreciated. Women don't like men who throw around their money simply because they can/want to. Dependability and security are crucial. 10. Initiating Open Conversations/Discussions If you've heard this one before, then you should know that it's true. It may be a common stereotype that women like to talk, anytime and anywhere, but the truth is, most of them want to stay away from futile conversations just as much as you do. Hence, if you can initiate open and quality conversations or are willing to initiate discussions on matters of mutual interest, she'll want to come back to you for more of it. How many of these do you think you have been blessed with?
  10. The much awaited and much-hyped trailer of this year's magnum opus, 'Thugs Of Hindostan' is finally out. Before we begin dissecting it further, let's just have a great aesthetic view of it first. First things first, Aamir Khan is easily the Johnny Depp of Bollywood, if one is allowed to do draw an innocuous comparison. The man is called a perfectionist for a reason. His role in TOH has some eerie similarities to Depp's characters from 'Pirates Of The Carribean' and 'Alice In Wonderland', and from the trailer, it looks like Aamir has nailed his performance in a way that only he could. © YRF Coming to Big B, words fall short for this mitochondria of Bollywood, who can slip into any role like changing his clothes. He can be seen pulling off some pretty kick-ass action moves in the trailer, and at his age, he is clearly giving the mainstream actors a run for their money. © YRF The movie also stars Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif. For some reason, their appearances were kept short and crisp in the trailer, so we are guessing we'll have a better look once the next trailer is out. The movie is a YRF production, so nothing lacks in terms of cinematography and it is going to be a Diwali treat for every fan out there! 'Thugs Of Hindostan' will release in theatres on November 8th.
  11. For a really long time, the world of cricket remained unfazed by the concept of fitness, which continued to be a prerequisite for athletes plying their trade in other sports. Cricketers, in the past, were more concerned and focussed on honing their techniques and skills which meant that fitness took a back seat. But, modern-day cricket is no longer the same. The likes of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers introduced a breed of cricketers who were not only technically sound and skilful, but also physically fit to carry out the chores on the field. The new-age cricketer is electric on the field, runs hard between wickets and pulls off blinders - all that seemed impossible for the previous generations. But, while international cricket has witnessed the modern-day cricketers setting new standards in the sport, there are some players who still back their cricketing skills over fitness. Afghanistan opener Mohammad Shahzad is the one that belongs to the latter category. © Twitter Earlier this year, the Afghanistan cricketer was mocked and drew a lot of flak for his comments regarding the fitness concerns over his game. "I work a lot on my fitness but I don't compromise on food). You want me to have a fitness routine like Kohli, it is not possible, but I am working on it (losing weight). I can hit bigger sixes than Kohli, so why do I need to follow his diet?" he had said. While many laughed at him, others wasted no time in taking a dig at his 'beer belly'. But, for a man who was deemed unfit to play in Australia in Afghanistan's first-ever ICC World Cup appearance, Shahzad silenced all the naysayers and shattered all the pre-conceived notions on the back of a blistering hundred against India in the ongoing 2018 Asia Cup. On 25th September, Afghanistan and India were gearing up for the Super Four clash which held no serious effect on either side in the tournament going forward. India had already secured their berth in the final and Afghanistan were out of the tournament. But, the so-called inconsequential game had a bearing on how we saw the sport. © Twitter Opening the innings for his side, Shahzad took charge of the proceedings right from the word go and took the inexperienced Indian pace attack to the cleaners. Making the powerplay his personal playtime, the right-hander raced his way to fifty in just 37 deliveries to ensure Afghanistan romped their way to 57 runs in nine overs. If his domination early on sent the Indian seamers ducking for cover, Shahzad's rampant run, at the later stage, cut a sorry figure for the opposition spinners. He blazed away against seam and spin in a merciless assault. When the bowlers bowled on the stumps, he used slog sweep to dispatch them over the fence, and once the ball was bowled wide of the stumps, the Afghan didn't miss out on sending them over cover for glorious boundaries. Even as the wickets kept on falling at the other end, Shahzad's blitzkrieg didn't stop, as he notched up a well-deserved hundred in 88 deliveries. His fine knock eventually came to an end in the 38th over after he holed out to long-off in a bid to smash a six. Shahzad's whirlwind of an innings was restricted to 124 runs that included 11 fours and seven sixes. It was his 5th ODI hundred and first against India. He also overtook Faf du Plessis (120 runs) to become the highest run-getter in an ODI inning against India. © Twitter Shahzad attacked 60 per cent of the balls he faced in his innings with a boundary percentage of 19 per cent - something that's more than his career average of 45 per cent and 12 per cent respectively for the two metrics listed above. His blistering innings was an exhibition of clean hitting - one that shows why he values power over fitness. On Tuesday, standing at 5 feet 8 inches and weighing over 90kg, none of the fitness concerns that surrounded Shahzad mattered. So what if he cannot run as quickly as Kohli, Dhoni or ABD? Shahzad's knock proved that he can adequately make up for it by hitting the ball long and clean. The man's philosophy of 'stand and deliver' - just like Virender Sehwag - cannot be overlooked, not after what he did to the Indian bowlers in Dubai.
  12. People have already started to queue up for the iPhone XS and we reported a story yesterday about how fans are even ready to spend the night waiting in line. However, Apple fans who were stationed outside the store were greeted with a surprise by another smartphone maker — Huawei. © Twitter In a brilliant yet snarky marketing gimmick, some people were spotted wearing Huawei shirts and handing out free power banks to hundreds of Apple fans in line. This was first reported by tech360 and here's what they posted: According to sources, approximately 200 power banks were handed out to people in the line. Here are some of the images shared by Huawei: © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter Each power bank came with a message that basically said “You'll need it”. We have to commend Huawei for this ingenious marketing campaign that basically targets the iPhone's battery life. The iPhone XS is outfitted with a 2,658mAh battery while Huawei's P20 Pro comes with a 4,00 mAh battery. Here's a video below that basically shows what Huawei was up to last night in Singapore.
  13. 'Bigg Boss 12' has started with a bang and we can't get enough of the delicious supply of drama. Like it or not, BB is the talk of the town and almost everyone around us is definitely talking about who is doing what inside the House. It's only been a couple of days and Anup Jalota, Jasleen Matharu and former Indian cricketer Sreesanth are making headlines. While Anup and Jasleen are the talk of the town for their 'relationship', Sreesanth is getting into heated arguments, as expected. He simply can't seem to have people messing around him and recently, he ended up having an argument with commoner Somi Khan. Things got so out of control, that they started attacking each other's upbringing, to make matters worse. View this post on Instagram Will this be @sreesanthnair36's last night in the #BB12 house? Janne ke liye dekhiye #BiggBoss12 tonight at 9 PM! @iamappyfizz @oppomobileindia @thegarnierman @letsdroom A post shared by Colors TV (@colorstv) on Sep 18, 2018 at 11:53pm PDT Well, we all know how Sreesanth can get quite aggressive and true to form, the former Indian cricketer lost his cool and threatened to leave Salman Khan's show if this is how things were to continue in the House. However, if this is what he plans to do, his decision will cost him a lot more money than he thinks. The player will lose around Rs 50 lakh if he quits the show mid-way. As he is a celebrity contestant, the contract comes with a hefty clause. View this post on Instagram Socha tha karenge jodiyon ko all-out, but @sreesanthnair36 ne task se kiya walk out. BB conference mein aaj raat hoga ek naya dhamaka! Make sure you tune in at 9 PM. #BiggBoss12 #BB12 A post shared by Colors TV (@colorstv) on Sep 18, 2018 at 2:02am PDT This isn't the first time he has done something like this. Previously, he had walked out of another reality show 'Jhalak Dhikla Jaa' after he got into a heated argument with the judging panel consisting of Madhuri Dixit, Remo D'Souza and Karan Johar, when they gave him their feedback about the flaws in his performance. View this post on Instagram He's definitely got both the swag and style! Catch cricketer @sreesanthnair36's mind-blowing entry only on #BB12 . @BeingSalmanKhan #BiggBoss12 A post shared by Colors TV (@colorstv) on Sep 16, 2018 at 10:49am PDT Talking about his reaction he told PTI, “The outburst was more because of the disappointment than anger, as I was doing extremely well on the show during the past six weeks. I think I just had a bad day. It was the wrong timing and wrong choice of song.” Well, it will be interesting to see if Sree is willing to pay the massive amount in exchange for his freedom, or if he finds a way to survive in the House.
  14. White sneakers, we feel, are really underrated. From comfort to fit, to style, which other footwear allows you as much versatility? Wear it with casuals, street style, or even with a suit, you can never go wrong. Kartik Aaryan clearly believes the same, and often steps out wearing statement white sneakers. Continuing the streak of good taste, he recently wore a pair that we think are the best looking pair of white sneakers we have seen this year. © Viral Bhayani Kartik is wearing the Y-3 KUSARI II white sneakers by Adidas. The edgy pair boasts of a smooth neoprene upper, which is accented with leather details and has an engineered lacing system for enhanced stability. © store.y-3.com The shoes are cushioned with 'boost', which Adidas Y-3 claims is the most responsive cushioning they have used in a shoe. © store.y-3.com With the Y-3 logo graphic woven on the tongue, Drawcord eyestay, and EVA heel piece for support, the Y-3 Kusari II is a force to be reckoned with, when it comes to white sneakers. © store.y-3.com Coming to how much they cost, the Adidas Y-3 Kusari II is worth 485 Euros, which when converted to INR is Rs 41,257/-. © Viral Bhayani Coming to the rest of his outfit, we are in love with the denim-on-denim aesthetic. The relaxed grey T-shirt he's wearing inside complements the blue of the jeans and the denim shirt. Talk about a stylistically nonchalant but classy outfit! © Viral Bhayani Still on top of your fashion game, Kartik. Kudos!
  15. Last week, along with the launch of the new iPhones, Apple also announced it will be pushing the iOS 12 update Over-The-Air (OTA) on 17 September. For India, the update will be available for download starting tonight. The new iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and XR will ship with iOS 12 installed out of the box, while all devices starting from iPhone 5S will receive it OTA. The new operating system, which Apple previewed at this year's annual developers conference, WWDC, is all about making your phone faster and smarter. "For iOS 12, we are doubling down on performance,” said software VP Craig Federighi. How Do You Download It? All you need to do is open the Settings app, tap General, and select Software Updates. Once the update is available from Apple's server, you can download it via WiFi and install at your convenience. The second way is to plug your iPhone or iPad to your Mac or PC and open iTunes. Once the devices are in sync with your Apple ID, just select "Check for Update", once available, download it and then install. Keep in mind, your phone should remain connected to the computer all the time. While the focus has been on fixing the OS from its core, Apple has also finally decided to update a few of its apps that seemed were long forgotten. Here's a list of new features that shall be coming with the update: 1. Performance: © Apple Insider Apple has promised that iPhone users will see sizeable speed improvements, including smartphones as old as 2013's iPhone 5S. Apple said it has improved performance all over iOS, so things should be at least a little quicker day to day. iOS 12 instantly ramps up CPU clock speeds, instead of slowly increasing it to their peak speeds. It also decreases fast to save on battery life as well. Federighi said that in Apple's tests on an iPhone 6 Plus, apps launch 40 per cent faster, the system keyboard comes up 50 per cent faster, and opening the camera is 70 per cent faster. 2. Better Notification Management: © Apple Notifications from the same app are now stacked, instead of being shown in a long list. Tap on a stack of alerts to unfold it, and then interact with individual notifications. Instant Tuning also gives you control over your notification settings right from the lock screen. A new Deliver Quietly option silently sends notifications directly to Notification Center without interrupting you, and you don't need to worry about keeping the phone on Do Not Disturb mode. 3. Do Not Disturb: © Apple In the past, you've been able to put your phone on Do Not Disturb for a specified amount of time — now you can do it for a specific place, like your office or a movie theatre. The phone will automatically be on Do Not Disturb mode when you enter and off when you leave. You can also choose whether to end DND in an hour, in the evening, or schedule it manually. 4. Bedtime: image 6 Apple When bedtime mode is enabled, all notifications will be blocked from not only lighting up but even appearing on your lock screen. This way if you look at your phone to check the time, you won't find yourself tapping through alerts from various apps instead of going to bed. This option can be switched on by going to Settings Do Not Disturb Bedtime. 5. Smarter Photos App: © Apple Apple Photos will now show search suggestions allowing users to discover older photos through certain keywords like places, moments and even business names. A new For You section has also been made that shows memories, featured photos, live photos, and shared album activity. And you can also send high-resolution pictures over iMessage. 6. Shortcuts: © Apple You can now customize "Shortcuts" — basically suggestion of apps you might normally use before you head out the door in the morning (weather, and maps). In fact, in iOS 12, Siri can take note of your habits and even suggest Shortcuts to you. You can also add shortcuts using the “Add to Siri” button in supported apps, or in Settings Siri and Search. 7. Screen Time: © Apple Screen Time provides detailed information and tools to help you find the right balance of time spent with apps and websites. You can easily see the time spent on apps, usage across categories of apps, how many notifications are received, and how often devices are picked up. Once you know which apps are taking up most of your time, app limits can set the amount of time you can spend in apps and on websites. In Settings Screen Time your device will break down, to the minute, how much time you spend on specific apps or on websites. Furthermore, it will also keep a track of how often you unlock your phone, a number of alerts you receive, and your call durations. 8. Group FaceTime: © SlashGear Users can hold group FaceTime calls with up to 32 participants. You can also add effects to your FaceTime call, just like you can when using the camera in the Messages app. 9. AR Experiences: © Apple Shared experiences in ARKit 2 let developers create innovative AR apps you can experience together with friends, it's like playing a multi-player game with AR. Apple has also announced a new file format for AR in collaboration with Pixar called USDZ. The latest iteration paves way for smarter and more advanced AR-based applications on iPhones. 10. Battery Insights: © Apple The battery monitoring option has been pretty basic until now, Apple intends to take this a level further by showing more data in graphs as to which app is taking up maximum power. The Battery tab within Settings will offer a clearer picture of how your battery performs from day to day. 11. App Updates: © Apple Apple Books gets an all-new design that makes discovering and enjoying books easier. Apple Music can now search lyrics so you can use a few of the words to find a song along with new charts to show you the daily top 100 songs in countries. Apple News is also getting a redesign. Some minor changes are also coming to Podcasts, Voice Memo's, and Stocks.
  16. When it comes to setting trends, Bollywood is generally good at both making it and breaking it. But in some instances, Bollywood simply follows them as well. Let us understand whether we could call Bollywood a trend setter or a trend follower or both. Speaking of setting trends, Bollywood has always been the front-runner in the Indian entertainment industry when it comes to fashion and has given a huge impetus to the fashion industry. It surely knows how to up the style statement in every sphere – films, international red carpet appearances, fashion shows or brand endorsements. © Instagram Whether it is Manish Malhotra's fashion shows or Sabyasachi Mukherjee's creation during the Virushka wedding or other B-town celebrities, they definitely know how to make heads turn. Making international appearances, the leading ladies of Bollywood have grabbed a lot of eyeballs by walking down the international red carpet every year and by featuring on the covers of glamorous glossy magazine worldwide. Be it Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at the Cannes Film Festival or Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone at the Met Gala; these B-town beauties have always kept the paparazzi on their toes. © Instagram From press conferences to film premieres, high-profile weddings to airport appearances, Bollywood never stays out of style and has become a fashion icon for the most part of the Indian population. With multiple clothing and grooming product endorsements, Bollywood has always raised the style quotient for many Indians. This is quite evident from the huge pay cheques they take home every year. Now, speaking of following trends, Bollywood has been following the footsteps of Hollywood in churning out the same old content in the form of remakes and sequels besides biopics. Also, with the new trend of remixing songs from the late 80s and 90s into present Bollywood films, Bollywood is just copying itself. © Twitter Bollywood has been following the same old trend of film promotions by reaching out to reality shows and guest appearances in TV soaps. Furthermore, it still relies heavily on local language films to bring mass audiences to the theatres. What do you think – is Bollywood good at setting trends or following them? Let us know in the comments below.
  17. Letting a girl take the lead to ask you out is a very brave and bold move, and once it happens, it's a sure shot sign that she isn't going anywhere. Most people still believe that girls should not be asking boys out and it's their job to pop the question or make the first move, but I firmly believe that times are changing and asking a guy out is kinda cool. However, getting the girl to ask you out is a challenge, a fun challenge, regardless. A lot of girls are okay with taking the lead and asking men out, but most of them set up the guy to do the asking out part, and play a beautiful mind game. But there are a few things you can do to get her to ask you out! © Warner Bros. Television But remember, not all girls enjoy asking men out. So if you're with someone or like someone who you think won't mind asking you out, definitely encourage it. Here are 5 simple ways to get the girl you like to ask you out instead: (1) Be Open About Your Feelings You don't have to hide your feelings or play mind games. It's okay to be open about your feelings. You could do that through gestures like calling her up often, texting her, hanging out with her or you could do it with words, by dropping hints on how you like her, complimenting her often, flirting with her. Basically, enough for her to know you're really into her. So, when she does ask you out, she's very sure about her decision because she knows you won't reject her. (2) Play Hard To Get Playing hard to get is a great way to get a girl interested in you. How? Well, just give her the sense you're around but don't be too around. Be the man of mystery and let her try and figure you out. Just by the sheer absence of some knowledge about you, she'll ask you out for a coffee or something, to get to know you a little bit. But you have to add the element of mystery to completely get her curious or it isn't going to work. (3) Be A Good Listener Girls like to talk about how they feel, most times. I am sure you do too, but more often than never, they look for that one person they can share most things with. So here's your chance to become her confidante. Remember to not enter the friend zone though, just maintain that distance but be there to listen to her. She would want to meet you often because you're the guy who listens! And eventually, she would want to be with you. So give yourself that chance. (4) Don't Be Impatient Being impatient can actually make it worse for you. I mean, if you wait it out she will come around but if you want to spoil it for yourself you can be impatient and ask her out instead. But patience is the key here. If you do all the things right and lay the groundwork, it will take her time, but she will develop feelings for you and would want to ask you out, or at least get you to ask her out. (5) Subliminal Messaging Usually, a date would be something you both like doing together. Be it watching a movie, or going to your favourite bar in the city or even for a play. But you need to let her know what you like doing, and indirectly hint at doing it with her if you have common favourites. This way, if there is an interesting movie that's on and she knows you like it too, she will definitely be very casual about it and ask you if you want to go see it with her. I wouldn't want to state it otherwise but this is a form of subliminal messaging or an auto-suggestion, which will make her ask you out. It isn't an easy task I know, but sometimes men need an ego boost too, just like all the women do and once in a while, it's not a bad idea. Being asked out by a girl is quite awesome I think and I'd love it if it happened more often!
  18. Apple has finally announced the three iPhones that were rumoured all year and it seems like everything that was rumoured, has almost come true. The new smartphones don't have any major changes but the smartphones do have upgrades that will make the new iPhones better and faster than ever before. Here are some features we love on the upcoming iPhones this year: Bigger, Better Screens © YouTube The new Super Retina displays on the new iPhones will pack more pixels than its predecessor and also offer 60 per cent more dynamic range. The iPhone XS will sport the same 5.8-inch OLED display while the XS Max will have a massive 6.5-inch display that will have 3.3 million pixels. Massive Storage © Apple For the very first time, Apple will not be offering an iPhone that will have 512 GB internal storage. That is more than enough to store thousands of pictures, music, videos and apps. It does cost a bomb for this variant, however, we feel it will be a worthy investment. Improved Cameras © Apple iPhones are touted to have one of the best smartphone cameras and it seems like Apple will be offering some major upgrades in this department. The iPhone XS and XS Max will have the same vertical camera setup as the iPhone X. It will have a 12MP wide-angle camera and a telephoto lens. Having said that, the new iPhones will have better and more powerful sensors that will be able to take clearer pictures in low light environments. The selfie camera has a 2x faster sensor and better red-eye reduction thanks to the A12 bionic chipset. The A12 Bionic Chip © Apple We all know Apple makes some of the best chipsets for the iPhone and the A12 bionic processor is no exception. The SoC is a 7nm chip that has an “8-core dedicated machine-learning engine to analyse neural network data” According to Apple, it can process 5 trillion operations per second which is major leap when compared to the A11's 600 billion operations per second. This will enable apps to open 30 per cent faster while using less power. Improved Portrait Shots © Apple Thanks to iOS 12, you will now be able to adjust the level of blur in your portrait shots. We've seen this feature before on the Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note 9 and other Samsung smartphones, however, it is always great to see this feature make it to iPhones. Users will be able to adjust the depth of field in a picture after it has been taken. Better Water Resistance The iPhone XS and XS Max now have a water resistance of IP68, which means the smartphone is now dust-proof and can remain submerged under water up to 2 meters for 30 minutes. That's a major improvement of previous iPhone's IP67 rating. Dual Sim © Apple The iPhone XS and XS max will also have dual-SIM technology where it will use one physical SIM card and one eSIM. Apple calls it the Dual Sim Dual Standby (DSDS) and will essentially allow users to use two phone numbers at the same time. This is probably the most requested feature by users in India and China and we finally see this feature making a debut on Apple devices.
  19. The indie music scene here in India has evolved leaps and bounds in the last decade, and we have been witness to the grand shows that Nucleya, Hari & Sukhmani, MadBoy/Mink et al. have put up. These artists have recreated music and presented heady blends of vocals and musical notes, good enough to make a name and place for themselves in the commercial space, apart from delivering marvellous euphonies that can make your heart sing. But there is a different format of music in the indie music space that is slowly yet steadily gaining recognition and has been garnering a major fan following in India and that is the acapella music, which has been a popular genre of music worldwide for a long time. For those of you who may not be well aware of what acapella means, it is to sing without instrumental accompaniments but often complemented by beatboxing, as demonstrated in the popular movie 'Pitch Perfect'. While there are numerous acapella bands that are hugely popular around the globe and have been there for the longest time, here we chart out 6 of the most awesome Indian acapella groups that you must check out, if music is your drug: 1. RaagaTrippin' Touted to be India's very first Bollywood acapella group, they can create some of the most stunning renditions of Bollywood songs. Based out of aamchi Mumbai, the group is made up of seven superb talents namely, Gwen Dias, Suzanne D'Mello, Thomson Andrews, Gary Misquitta, Alan De Souza, Keshia Braganza and Leon De Souza. They ace the Jazz genre and have even performed with the 'Godfather of Indian Jazz' Louis Banks. 2. Voctronica Formed in 2011, Voctronica is said to be 'India's first beatboxing and vocal ensemble' and is based out of Mumbai. Fame came knocking at their door when their cover of 'Alt-J' went viral across social media platforms in 2015. The vocalists in this group are Warsha Easwar, Avinash Tewari, Meghana Bogle, Raj Verma, Clyde Rodrigues and Arjun Nair. Their music is upbeat and a mix of various genres. Last year they even collaborated with composer and singer Amit Trivedi for the Radio Mirchi Music Awards. 3. Penn Masala They need no introduction because whether you are into acapella or not, you must have stumbled across one of their videos on Facebook or Instagram. Penn Masala is one of the first South Asian acapella groups which was established way back in 1996 by Indian students in the University of Pennsylvania. Their western-Bollywood music medleys are to die for, while their simple Hindi music renditions also sound wonderful. They have also appeared in 'Pitch Perfect 2'. 4. No Treble Still making their space in the arena is this Bangalore based acapella group that started as a college level acapella team. They are into English and Bollywood music but also like to take up regional tunes. Their gigs have been well received by the audience but they haven't been very active online. The group also performed in the reality TV show 'India Banega Manch' on Colors TV. They have potential and we hope they find their moment of glory soon. 5. Aflatunes Another Mumbai based acapella group, this one isn't meant to be taken lightly. The name of their group is exactly what you should be expecting the group to whip up. The seven-member band comprises of both singers and beatboxers named Anish Nair, Dany Marshal, Jaimish Ashar, Ruchee Varghese, Nilay Singh, Pearl Alex and Joel Mathew. They have performed in numerous events including performances on the Rolling Stone Stage. 6. Vox Chord The Chennai based acapella group, Vox Chord came into the public eye when last year they sang an acapella version of Pakistan's national anthem Quami Taranah, as a gift on their Independence Day. The Twitterati on both the sides of the border applauded their soulful rendition. The group consists of three main singers, Alex Samuel Jenito, Vandana Mazan and Vaishnavi Kannan besides other artists who collaborate too. Beautiful, right?
  20. Along with the new iPhones, Apple also announced the next-generation of its Apple Watch lineup. Dubbed Apple Watch Series 4, it is a serious upgrade that brings in a bigger display, thinner design, faster processor, and above all, a ton of new features. The new watch face can display a humongous amount of data and is the first thing that will catch your attention at first sight. The Series 4 now comes in two new sizes--40mm and 44mm; the latter is available as an LTE (cellular) variant as well. Apple Watch now features a 30 percent larger display and it now runs to the edges rather than floats in a black bezel. It is powered by a new S4 chipset that Apple claims is two times faster. © Apple The speaker has been redesigned and is now 50 percent louder compared to the previous generation. The microphone has been shifted to the other side, away from the speaker, to reduce echo. Since its launch in 2015, all the variants of Apple Watch have sported a heart rate sensor, it can notify users about escalated resting heart rate and has already saved many lives. Apple is now taking health monitoring to another level by the adding the ability to take Electrocardiography readings (ECG). The results of the ECG can be easily shared via a PDF with your doctor and will also be saved in the Health app. © Apple Jeff Williams, Apple's Chief Operating Officer, explains, "We've added electrodes to the back of the Watch, and the digital crown allows you to take an electrocardiogram. Now you can take an ECG anytime, anywhere. You open the app and put finger on the digital crown. Built-in electrodes on the back and crown detect electrical impulses from your heartbeat and it will send them to S4 chip. Takes 30 seconds, and then you get a heart rate analysis." What's even more exciting is the watch has an improved gyroscope and accelerometer that can now predict if the person wearing it is falling. In case a fall is detected and no movement is recorded on the watch for one minute, it will automatically send out an SOS message. © Apple The Apple Watch Series 4 runs on watchOS 5 out of the box, this brings in a new modular face, three minimal faces, and watch faces based on fire, water, and vapor effects. Obviously, the update will be available to the previous generation of Apple Watch's as well. The Apple Watch is available in three colors for its aluminum finish, in silver, gold and space grey. The retail price starts at US$ 399 (Rs 28,700) for the GPS-only, non-cellular variant, and US$ 499 (Rs 36,000) for one with both GPS and cellular. It will be available for pre-order starting September 14 in the USA.
  21. After innumerable delays and testing our patience for months, the teaser of '2.0' finally dropped today and so did our jaws when we saw how epic the video is. When you spend as much as Rs. 545 crore (approx) on VFX and CGI crew, with over 3000 technicians from across the world investing their skills in the movie, you can expect nothing but the best and this 1 minute 30 seconds video proves the same. © lyca productions The teaser begins with birds flying around a body hanging from an electricity tower. Before we could register what's happening, people's phones begin disappearing mysteriously and we see a glimpse of Akshay Kumar, who plays the role of a scientist named Dr. Richard, the man behind this destruction and chaos. Honestly, we don't know what Akshay will do with so many smartphones, but we hope he gets our Aadhar linked though or pay the phone bills maybe. © lyca productions Akshay then wreaks havoc in the city by transforming into a giant monster bird and if there's anyone who can stop him, it's Chitti. Is it just me or this 'bird chasing people' scene reminds you of 'Jurassic Park' as well? To fight this evil bird, Chitti is summoned by his creator Dr. Vaseegaran. Rajinikanth is introduced as Dr. Vaseegaran and as the robot Chitti who will have a face-off with Dr. Richard. Here's our takeaway from the teaser - just release the movie already because this kickass video has made our wait harder than before. Directed by S. Shankar, the movie is slated to release on November 29 and also stars Amy Jackson, Adil Hussain and Sudhanshu Pandey.
  22. 'Stree' has been garnering scores of positive reviews for its interesting storyline and execution of the idea of ghosts, and many feel that it mirrors our Indian society. The brilliant acting by the cast, especially Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao, are being praised as well. However, the star of the movie clearly is the ghost who scared the daylights out of everyone. Interestingly, the credit does not go to CGI, but to an actress by the name of Flora Saini.

  23. You know what's the best answer (and a f**k you) to all the people who have bullied you? Go on and work so hard that they can't help but be jealous of your success. Actually, I feel that bullying mostly comes from a place of insecurity, I mean, why else would you be so cruel to someone for no reason at all? Husain Saify proved everyone wrong by being more successful than most people, at just the age of 21. He's running an IT-service startup 'HackerKernel' and the best part is that his company has already crossed an annual turnover of over â¹1 crore in just three years. His company basically provides mobile and web application development services to over 200 companies both in India and abroad, including countries like the USA, Japan, and Dubai. So yes, he's doing big things. © Facebook It all started in Husain's room in Bhopal and ended up becoming one of the most successful startups in Madhya Pradesh. It all started when he got his first computer at the age of 12. Starting off by just playing games, he developed his first website idea, which was 'how about creating a website that allowed people to download games?' After gaining basic technical knowledge at school, he started visiting the local internet café to learn even more. And, then he learned how to make his first website. Talking to The Better India, he said, “It was funny because I had no idea how to make it live at the time.” On his journey of becoming a web developer, he poured everything he has in programming, learning PHP and javascript, to build a closed social network website using PHP called Trendyfi. But soon, tech gurus started trolling him by calling him the 'kid who had stumbled into programming'. But, he didn't let the trolling and bullying slow him down. The first website he built was for a local burger joint in Bhopal. He said, “The man sold amazing burgers but was hardly aware of how online delivery could help him earn revenue. When he asked if I knew anybody willing to build a website, I volunteered. I worked for one week and made a website, which he loved. He handed â¹5,000 to me. A big amount at the time, since no commercials were ever discussed. I was really happy! When I researched, I realised such websites cost over 25k!” Then, after buying the domain HackerKernel.com, he started connecting with people and working as a freelance developer. With him getting more and more work, he decided to drop out of college. He said, “Of course, my parents wanted me to complete my graduation. But I wanted to give my 100% to my work.” © Facebook He also realized how he would need a partner to keep up with all the work, so he got his friend, Rithik Soni, on board. In less than three years, his small startup that started in his room and basement moved to a bigger office. The company they built today has 25 engineers who serve 200 companies, including Eduzina, Zingfy, Madcue, Fast2sms, Quants Investment Strategy and consultancy service LLP, Yantralive, Deeptalent etc. He finished off by saying, “There is no substitute for hard work. I have worked for 18 to 20 hours a day to reach where I am. Put in your best efforts, and glory will follow. Take risks, but ensure they are calculated by weighing the pros and the cons.”
  24. From this day onwards the LGBTQ community in India shall enjoy a life that is no longer closeted or barred from enjoying the basic human rights they have had to fight for, for such a long time. Earlier today, the Supreme Court decriminalised consensual gay *** and scrapped a century-old law from the times of the British Raj, namely Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, and gave a very vibrant section of our community a new lease of life and the hope for a better future. © Reuters The verdict came from the Chief Justice of India who stated that gay rights must be upheld in the country, while Justice Indu Malhotra asserted that history owes an apology to the members and parents of the LGBTQ community who have suffered at the hands of a judgemental society that has overlooked their basic rights and needs for the longest times. The verdict stems from the very need for the whole community to lead a free life guided by the same fundamental rights that every other citizen of India enjoys in the country. This comes as a historic win for the nation and as a sign of better days in the future, where similar structural changes in outdated laws and policies shall protect and empower communities to live freely and without any fear, but complete with pride. © Reuters That said, we would also like to take you through the journey of not only how this sad, almost prehistoric law came to pass in the country but also why it managed to subsist within the system until today: 1. It was during the British Raj in 1862 that Section 377 first came into being. The law decreed that whoever indulges in voluntary carnal intercourse against the order of nature, be it with a woman, man or even an animal shall be punished by law with imprisonment for life or imprisonment for a period of ten years along with an imposition of fine. © Reuters 2. Years of legal battle saw decriminalisation of consensual homosexual acts in private by the Delhi High Court in July 2009 and called Section 377 of IPC as unconstitutional, which prohibits a gay person's right to individuality. 3. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court reserved the High Court's verdict in December 2013. The then Justice G. S. Singhvi upheld the constitutional validity of Section 377 and put the responsibility of the legislature to decide on the matter. © Reuters 4. However, 2014 brought a ray of hope for the LGBTQ community, when transgenders in the country were declared as the “third gender” and ordered for them to be included under the OBC quota, by the top court's order. It was also stated that they shall have equal rights under the law such as the right to marriage, adoption, inheritance and adoption. 5. The major move towards a better chance for the community happened in February 2016, when the Naz Foundation submitted a curative petition and T.S. Thakur, the then Chief Justice of India ordered for the petitions to be reviewed again by a Constitutional bench. © Reuters 6. Cut to 2018 and in July this year, the five-member Constitutional bench began to hear petitions challenging Section 377. India began to hope that the bench would rectify the mistakes of the Supreme Court and repeal Section 377. 7. Today, on September 6th, the Constitutional bench finally gave its verdict and decriminalised gay ***. They have called for equal respect and rights for the LGBTQ community and for moving towards a better, all-encompassing and compassionate society. © Reuters It's been a long journey but finally, we have arrived and now we can proudly say all love is legal.
  25. What could be a better day than Teacher's Day to share the poster of a movie, that's based on the journey of famous Indian mathematician Anand Kumar? pic.twitter.com/GEvINNnccX — Hrithik Roshan (@iHrithik) September 4, 2018 We're talking about the poster of 'Super 30', which was dropped today by the world's most handsome actor Hrithik Roshan.
