  1. Think of the toughest or the hardest role possible, and for Bollywood's OG Khiladi Akshay Kumar, portraying it will still be child's play. Be it creating awareness on cleanliness and building toilets or teaching people about women's sanitary issues, Akshay Kumar has always impressed his fans with his versatility. Looks like his next movie, 'Kesari', too will be a blockbuster and the trailer that dropped today is proof. © Dharma Productions The famous Battle of Saragarhi (1891) was one of the bravest battles ever fought in the history. Decades later, Akshay Kumar is all set to recreate that battle in 'Kesari' and the 3-minute trailer speaks volumes about the valour and courage of those 21 Sikh Soldiers (of the British Indian contingent) who fought against 10,000 Afghan invaders. © Dharma Productions Talking about the trailer, the fight scenes and war sequences are brilliantly shot and the dialogues spear right through our hearts. Honestly, we are not surprised because when its Akshay Kumar, people expect nothing but the best from him. This time too, the actor has not disappointed us at all. Parineeti Chopra too has a 'blink and miss' appearance in the trailer. Directed by Anurag Singh and produced by Karan Johar and Akshay Kumar, 'Kesari' is expected to release on Holi i.e. March 21. 'Kesari' also stars Siddhant Sharma, Ashwath Bhatt, Pawan Malhotra and Rana Ranbir.
  2. Until yesterday, Barbados, the island nation in the Caribbean, used to be known across the world for being the place where 'Friends' character Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) hooked up with Joey (Matt LeBlanc), but the Windies' 'Universe Boss', Chris Gayle, decided to change that last evening when he caused it to rain sixes on the island against the visiting England cricket team. WHAT A KNOCK. Chris Gayle makes an incredible return to international cricket, reaching his 24th ODI hundred with a single off of Chris Woakes. It's come from exactly 100 balls. Clinical.#WIvENG | FOLLOW â¬ï¸ https://t.co/pQbWOWuEQM pic.twitter.com/0uUFCPJK4h — ICC (@ICC) February 20, 2019 If 'Balls Lost' was a stat maintained by the International Cricket Council (ICC), it would have to be Chris Gayle's name on the top of the charts. In a comeback match of his extremely successful career, the 39-year-old was able to get his 24th ODI century. He scored a massive 135 runs off 129 balls while having three 4s and 12 thunderous 6s to achieve this feat. What is crazier than these numbers is the sheer strength Gayle continues to command. There are sixes that just make it beyond the boundary line and then there are the 'Gayle Storm' sixes that disappear somewhere on stadium rooftops or even go out of them. Yesterday, Barbados experienced one such storm. During the beating he put on the Englishmen last evening, Gayle's 12 sixes included a monsterous maximum that travelled for more than 120-m with the ball nowhere to be found. However, the 'ball-finding' experts believe that it may quite possibly be resting on the decks of a ship docked in the adjacent port. But that was just one of eight incidents when the umpires had to introduce a new white ball into the game because of Chris Gayle. Running out of balls in Barbados#ENGvWI Gayle ð¥ð¥ — @RavitejaFan (@asisht84) February 20, 2019 Gayle looked like a batsman fresh in his prime during the first ODI between England and West Indies. Beating Shahid Afridi's record for the most number of sixes (476), Gayle got the top spot in that category when in the 14th over, Gayle sent another one out of the park on a Moeen Ali-delivery. His new found form has come up after a couple of days since the athlete had publicly announced that he would be retiring from One-Day International cricket post ICC World Cup 2019. Although Joe Root and the rest of the English squad was able to chase down the Windies' mammoth total of 360 runs to win the first ODI, Gayle's return to the Caribbean roster in such fashion, just a couple of months before the world cup is nothing but good new for his team. Regardless, his fans were thoroughly entertained: After many days : Gayle is back into team Ball is out of groundð¤£#WIvENG #BBCCricket #IPL — Prem reddy (@premraina48) February 20, 2019 Universal Boss telling English kids how to hit ball out of the grnd.

  3. Unrequited love can be daunting. Essentially because it's a lonesome feeling and is never or partially returned. When you experience love that has become corrosive or toxic or is one sided, it's very unpleasant to deal with these feelings and more often than not you want to wish them away. Sometimes you'd desperately want to wish to not be in love with that particular person but you can't help feeling a certain way. Feelings have a direct link to the mind and more often than not, if your mind is strong you can control how you feel towards something. If you let your mind take over your conscious or sub conscious self, you give it absolute control, becoming a slave to your thoughts and feelings. So, in order to control the way you feel, you need to strengthen the mind. Falling out of love with someone works on the same principle. I know you may feel why should anyone fall out of such a beautiful, cathartic feeling. But love isn't always beautiful. Once scathed, it takes a long while for it to become whole again. © Fos Star Studio So, in case you really want to fall out of love with someone, I definitely can't do some voodoo magic but I can give you some helpful tips in order to successfully let go and feel complete again and to fall out of a strong emotion. Here are 5 ways you can tune your mind in to falling out of love with someone. (1) Do Some Exercises To Strengthen Your Mind When your mind is strong, you'll be able to overcome any feeling that makes you remarkably uncomfortable. It will be a lot easier to let go of how you feel towards something or balance it in your head. Learning a skill is a good way to stay focused and improve mind strength. It also serves as a good distraction! You can learn how to repair a car or cook. Each skill occupies the mind in such a way, it makes it more efficient with time, making it easy to let go of an unsuitable emotion. Mind exercises are fun and let's face it, some of us really need them! © Pintrest (2) Write Them A Letter But Don't Send It Sometimes things become way messy if you keep spilling your anger towards someone who does not reciprocate the same feelings. In such a case, what I'd suggest is for you to write down everything you're feeling in the form of a letter for the other person but don't send it to them. At least not yet. © Pintrest You can detach yourself from all the negative emotions and anger by spilling them in a letter, where you say anything and everything that comes to mind. This helps as the best release mechanism and lets you vent out every possible painful emotion you hold towards them. Maybe when you're over this feeling you can send them the letter, but by then you'd be over them and there wouldn't really be a need. (3) Pay Them No More Attention This is the best and the toughest way to fall out of love with someone. Just pay them no more attention and your mind on an autopilot will follow suit. You have to consciously decide to not give them anymore attention and that's tough because you are so used to focusing on their needs and wants. It's time to focus on yours and stop paying any heed to them. You need to stop ruminating on the past and think about how great or nice this person was. This is the past and it's never coming back, so it's best to focus on yourself and your future. © Pintrest (4) Discuss The Situation With An Unbiased Outsider It's always best to talk about how you feel with a third person so they can give you an absolute unbiased opinion. Make sure though you don't talk to someone who knows the two of you or is a friend of hers. It's best to talk to a therapist as they provide the best analogies and perspectives but in case you don't want to go to one, find a friend who barely knows the situation, a family member or someone you trust and get an opinion from them about how you should let go or fall out of love. © AA films (5) Remember that 'Nothing Good Gets Away' In a letter to his son, John Steinbeck once said 'nothing good gets away' and that's the best rationale you can find when you're falling out of love with someone. What it means is, if you were meant to be in love with someone and the person was meant to reciprocate your feelings, then it wouldn't go away no matter what. But the reason that it's fizzled out is because the person is probably not right for you and if she was, it wouldn't get away. © Pintrest In simpler terms, everything good or bad, happens for a reason and if it's meant to be , it will definitely fall in to place. So, if you're falling out of love with someone, you may fall in love with someone else, which will probably be good for you too! Yes, I agree falling out of love with someone is difficult. I only say this because I have gone through it and it's taken a lot of effort, emotional to and fro and certain realisations to reach that point of no return. But once you reach it, it's liberating like no other and it makes you feel like you've shed the old skin and you're never going to do it again!
  4. If there is something sweeter than scoring an extra time winner, it has to be reunions and rivalries. The better part of rivalries turns into controversies whereas reunions are celebrated and cherished. Since exceptions are always there, Luis Figo's hostile welcome at Camp Nou and the boos Angel Di Maria received at Old Trafford, are some of the few examples of the fact that reunions are not always a bed of roses. If you're still not over the 'Pogbrilliance' from last night, here are some thrilling reunions and rivalries to look forward to this week. 1. Tuesday - Liverpool vs Bayern Munich © Bavarian Football Works It cannot get bigger and better than this. Two European giants with 10 Champions League titles between them. Liverpool vs Bayern Munich at Anfield promises to be one of the games of the season. This match will see the reunion between a master and two of his apprentices - Jurgen Klopp and Mats Hummels and Robert Lewandowski. The German coach was responsible for bringing Lewandowski to Bundesliga and Mats Hummels to Borussia Dortmund. After the initial struggle, Klopp turned the Polish hitman into a phenom. He has now scored 193 Bundesliga goals and is just 2 behind the former Bayern Player Claudio Pizarro in terms of 'Most Goals Scored By A Non-German Player.' The former Mainz manager also transformed Hummels into one of the best defenders in the world, forcing Bayern Munich to buy him back from Dortmund. Lewandowski has come back to hurt Klopp on many occasions during latter's time at Die Borussen. It'll be amazing to see Klopp deal with the monsters he created. This match will also see Bayern come face to face with one of their treble winners in Xherdan Shaqiri, who has had an impressive start to the career at Anfield. 2. Wednesday - Atletico Madrid vs Juventus © therahnuma Atletico Madrid versus Juventus will see Cristiano Ronaldo meet his old foes. Currently the second best player in the world, Cristiano will meet Atletico for the first time since his move to Turin. It'll definitely prove to be a 'Clash Of The Titans' when the likes of Ronaldo, Dybala and Douglas Costa will take on Griezmann, Diego Costa and Thomas Lemar. For four years in a row, Ronaldo's Real Madrid ended Atletico's dreams of winning a UEFA Champions League title. Twice, those defeats came in the final of the competition in heartbreaking fashion. Just thinking about the reception he'll receive at Wanda Metropolitano sends chills down our spine. This match will also see Mario Mandzukic come up against his former employers. The Croatian who spent a season in the Spanish capital left after falling out with coach Diego Simeone. In other fixture, Manchester City will see golden boy, Leroy Sane, come up against his boyhood club, FC Schalke 04. Making it a night charged with emotions. 3. Thursday - Arsenal vs BATE Borisov © BBC Thursday will see Arsenal face BATE Borisov in the second leg of UEFA Europa League. To everybody's surprise, the Belarusian club came out on top in the first leg and will have a lead to defend during travel to North-London. What makes this match special is the return of former Arsenal player Alexander Hleb. His name might be the one that comes to mind when you think of the 2006 North-London outfit which came so close to winning the first Champions League trophy in club's history. But it was in Arsenal where the Belarusian played the best football of his career that eventually earned him a £12 million move to Pep Guardiola's Barcelona in the summer of 2008. It'll mark the return of a cult hero. 4. Saturday - Sevilla vs Barcelona © Inquirer In the race to La Liga title, Barcelona will face Sevilla in a tricky away fixture. Tricky because the last time Barca played Sevilla at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium, the home side ran out 2-0 winners in Copa Del Rey, only to be hammered away 6-1 by the Catalan club a week later. Though Barca leads Sevilla by 17 points in the points table, any slip-ups here will allow direct rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid to cut short the lead and pile the pressure on Barcelona. 5. Sunday - Manchester United vs Liverpool © BBC Super Sunday! The final day of this exhausting week full of football will see four of the top six Premier League sides in action. Firstly, it'll be the North-West Derby. With Liverpool coming to Old Trafford and aiming to go on top of the Premier League table, Manchester United will do whatever they can in order to not let that happen. This derby can prove to be the biggest of them all in recent years, with United having a say in Liverpool's title bid. Any result of helping the neighbours Manchester City will be favoured by United faithful in order to disrupt Scousers' title dream. 6. Sunday - Manchester City vs Chelsea © Ronaldo Secondly, after 6-0 drubbing last week, Chelsea will face Manchester City in the English League Cup final at Wembley. After a dismal run of form, Chelsea has slipped to fifth in the Premier League Table. A win here will prove to be a morale booster for London club in an otherwise shambolic season. Manchester City is definite favourites for the final and this could prove to be the first step towards the unprecedented quadruple. Other Fixtures: . Lyon vs Barcelona . Chelsea vs Malmo
  5. Oman Confined to mere 24 against the Mighty Scotland, registering the lowest ever ODI Total © Twitter/@ICC In the world of sports, we witness players and teams achieving new records, shattering the old ones. But sometimes, the same players and teams end up setting unwanted records, owing to disastrous performances. Something similar happened with Oman On Tuesday when they were bowled out for a grand total of mere 24 against Scotland in the first ODI of a three-match bilateral series between the two teams. They thus set the record for the lowest ever ODI total (scroll down for the full list of lowest-ever totals). After losing the toss, Oman were asked to bat first, after which they could just post 24 runs on the board. Out of this two dozen, 15 runs were scored by Khawar Ali, the only player to hit double digits. A total of five players, including both the openers, were bowled out for ducks. © Reuters Adrian Neill and Ruaidhri Smith proved picked four wickets each for Scotland, giving away just 14 runs in total. It was a piece of cake for the Scottish-openers, Matthew Cross and Kyle Coetzer, who wasted little time, and wrapped up the innings in 20 balls, with 10 wickets in hands. Here's how cricket fans all over the world reacted on the social media: What an absolute hammering! Well played Scotland ð´ó §ó ¢ó ³ó £ó ´ó ¿ ðð pic.twitter.com/O81u9Uz0In — David Lundberg (@Bankieboy73) February 19, 2019 Wow great effort guys down nets for a hit or golf let's keep it up keep playing hard cricket — Chef b crawford (@crazycrwf1) February 19, 2019 Love that our last 2 ODIs are: Scotland beat England Scotland beat Oman One day the ICC will sort out what constitutes a ranked game. — Charles Davie (@chuckdavie) February 19, 2019 Yes. A world record. Well except @ICC dont consider Oman a ranked side, despite them being one of the top 20 sides in the world. But screw the @ICC - keep on winning Scotland! — Charles Davie (@chuckdavie) February 19, 2019 Lowest Ever ODI Totals Before this match : 1. Zimbabwe getting bowled out for 35 runs against Sri Lanka in 2004 2. Canada being restricted to 36 runs by Sri Lanka in 2003 3. Zimbabwe scoring mere 38 runs against Sri Lanka in 2001 4. Pakistan being succumbed to 43 against West Indies in 1993 5. Zimbabwe posting total of 44 against Sri Lanka in 2009.
  6. Tom Holland has done it again! And, if your mind didn't automatically go to giving spoilers right now, I'm sorry but you're not a true Marvel fan. Tom, along with Mark Ruffalo, are truly the best and the worst because of their tendency to give out spoilers. It's hilarious and even they know how much they screw up. Mark has reached a point where he's the one joking about it and was even fake fired by the Russo Brothers. And well, Tom is just Tom. View this post on Instagram Lmao same. #CommentsByCelebs A post shared by Comments By Celebs (@commentsbycelebs) on Jan 18, 2019 at 6:43pm PST But unfortunately, this is not the kind of spoiler he's given this time. Apparently, an old interview of him promoting 'Avengers: Infinity War' with Benedict Cumberbatch has resurfaced for a very important reason, as it basically confirmed a theory everyone already knew about. We knew that quantum realm will play an important part in the upcoming final Avengers movie, what with Scott Lang stuck there alone at the end of 'Ant Man And The Wasp' and then somehow appearing in the first trailer of 'Endgame', but obviously, Marvel will never confirm it. But thankfully, Tom did, and he did it before even 'Infinity War' released. Coming back to the interview and the unassuming spoiler, when both the actors were asked that out of the two, who flubbed the most lines, Benedryl Cucumber named himself but was Tom was quick to defend him. Tom said, “He has the most difficult lines, though. He has to talk about so much Quantum Realm... stuff. I just have to talk about, 'Yeah man, that's awesome!' So mine's easy, but his is all so difficult.” Well, back then a lot of people might have thought that it was an 'Infinity War' spoiler, but now we know Doctor Strange didn't mention quantum realm even once in that movie. This can only mean one thing, Doctor Strange is obviously coming back and he could also be the one to save Ant Man. Moreover, it seems like the quantum realm is the answer to all of the OG Avengers' problems and it will help undo Thanos' snap, and all the destruction it caused, and bring back all the 'dusted' characters. I can't stress this enough, but honestly, April 27th cannot come soon enough.
  7. The ghastly suicide terror attack that resulted in the loss of lives of brave Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel continues to be condemned across the globe. While many have come up to aid the families of the martyrs, others have called for an immediate to isolate Pakistan for their alleged role in the Pulwama terror attack. The sports fraternity, too, has joined hands to do their bit in one of the darkest hours. While Virat Kohli was seen postponing the 'Indian Sports Honours' to show solidarity for the jawans, Virender Sehwag was seen offering educational support to the children of the slain soldiers. While Pakistan continues to face backlash following the terror strike, their decorated T20 tournament - Pakistan Super League (PSL) - is now in danger after losing its prime broadcaster. Are you ready for #KhelDeewanoKa? â³ pic.twitter.com/ZL8bLu4bAG — PakistanSuperLeague (@thePSLt20) February 14, 2019 IMG Reliance has pulled out from broadcasting the fourth edition of the PSL in protest against the Pulwama terrorist attack. The PSL 2019 had already become the butt of all jokes after the headliner Pitbull refused, at the last minute, to perform at the opening ceremony, leaving the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) red-faced. And, the latest development has further marred the league. "Due to unfortunate events a couple of days back which resulted in the death of Indian soldiers, IMG Reliance is pulling out with immediate effect, from offering broadcast production services for PSL. The incident that occurred is deeply regrettable," stated a mail addressed to Sohaib Sheikh and Kamil Khan of the PCB, the content of which is in possession of PTI. Being the lone producers of the event, IMG Reliance's pull-out means that the PSL 2019 will go off the air unless the PCB brings in alternate production services, an official told TOI. PCB statement on production of #HBLPSL 2019 https://t.co/Pc7kV5P4rW — PCB Official (@TheRealPCB) February 17, 2019 In response, the PCB also issued a statement wherein it expressed disappointment at IMG Reliance's move, claiming that "sports and politics should be kept separate". “We have been informed by IMG Reliance that they will be unable to partner with us for the remaining HBL PSL 2019 and PCB has reserved all its rights. The PCB always had a contingency plan in place, and we are confident we will be in a position to announce the new partner on Monday after the completion of the formalities,” PCB's Managing Director Wasim Khan said. “The PCB has also noted the recent turn of events and expresses its extreme disappointment as we have always believed and emphasised that sports and politics should be kept separate. History tells us that sports, particularly cricket, have always played a key role in building bridges between people and countries," he added. Voicing PCB's dissent at the covering of Pakistan PM Imran Khan's portrait at the Cricket Club of India (CCI), Wasim said: “Unfortunately, denying India cricket fans the right to follow HBL PSL by blocking all digital coverage as well as covering or removing portrait of former Pakistan cricket captain and Prime Minister Imran Khan and other legendary cricketers from one of the most historic cricket clubs and venues are highly regrettable actions. The PCB intends to take up these incidents with the BCCI and the ICC at the upcoming ICC committee meeting in Dubai later this month”.

The six-team franchise-based tournament is currently being held in Dubai and Sharjah before it moves to Pakistan for the final eight games, including the all-important final in Karachi.

  9. For time immemorial, popcorn has been mostly (and strictly) associated with visits to the cinema halls around town. Eventually, it somehow morphed into an unspoken agreement between the parties heading out to the theatres, that intervals call for a bucket or two of salted popcorns and one of the many fizzy drinks to go with it, at the least. Times changed, PVRs came into existence and the menus at the movie theatres also went on to become more extensive. But the good ol' popcorn remained a hot favourite with the movie-goers, with its sprinkling of salt and nostalgia to keep us company through the many hours we spent laughing and crying at the silver screen. (c) MensXP So when the time came for Chirag Gupta to give wings to his entrepreneurial dreams, he decided to reintroduce how Indians enjoyed their most trusted movie companion - popcorn. Chirag, along with his friend and co-founder Ankur Gupta came up with the plan to bring gourmet popcorns to Indians, and that's how premium popcorn brand 4700 BC came into being in 2013. Ever since, the duo has changed how Indians have interacted with popcorn. The gourmet makeover that 4700 BC gave the humble popcorn became an instant hit, and there was no looking back after that. The Backstory Back in 2012 when Chirag had been already working with Deloitte Consulting in the US for five years, he decided that it was time to go back home and start something of his own, because working for someone else was not an option he was ready to consider. Chirag shares that, “at that point, my thought was that now I have enough money, so let's go back to India and try something of our own.” (c) MensXP Once he got back to the country, Chirag got in touch with his childhood friend Ankur and shared his plans with him. Fortunately for both of them, they were equally thrilled by the prospect of building something of their own and taking it to new heights. The Initiation Once the discussions reached fruition, they decided to explore the growing food industry in India. Soon plans were laid out for gourmet popcorn (and a few other ideas), and “the next thing we knew, we hired a chef who started developing out recipes. (c) MensXP Soon the duo learnt about the intricacies of the business, which was already popular in the US, and realised that they would have to import everything from machinery to raw materials from the US. Once the setup bit was sorted, things began to fall in place for their company. But Chirag tells us that the major high came from “getting a store in DLF Saket, which was a premium location in Delhi. We got the first store running there and the response was superb.” The Next Step The first year went well for the company, but soon they realised that they need to get better at their own game to retain their consumers. That's the only challenge they faced since no one else in India was doing something similar, so no one was really aware of the nuances of this line of business. (c) MensXP Talking about challenges Chirag says that, “it is important in every entrepreneur's life because until you see the pain and challenges, you don't think about taking the business to its next level.” 4700 BC Today Today, 4700 BC popcorns are available in 18 different flavours as opposed to the three basics flavours they offered in the beginning. What's more, 4700 BC is available across all PVR cinemas and the company sells approximately 12 lakh units every month!

  10. If you're cued in with what's happening in Bollywood, you'd know Hrithik Roshan's 'Super 30' is releasing in July 2019. The much-awaited Roshan biopic is based on the life of maths genius, Anand Kumar, who runs the famous super 30 program for IIT aspirants in Patna. All the Hrithik fans are truly geared up to watch him play Anand's character. © Viacom18 Motion Pictures The film though has a slight twist of faith, in a good, reckoning way though! The film ran in to trouble recently when director Vikas Bahl was accused of sexual misconduct by two women and became a part of the #MeToo movement. Soon after, the makers of the film decided to ask him to leave the project in order to preserve the sanctity of the film. Since then, the movie does not seem to have a director and its release has been delayed. Earlier it was supposed to release on the 25th of January but now it's scheduled to release on the 26th of July. © Twitter As soon as Vikas was shown the exit door, Anurag Kashyap, Vikas's former partner from now dissolved Phantom Films took over the project and is overseeing the post production of the film. In fact, Shibasish Sarkar, group CEO of Reliance Entertainment, revealed that the film will have no directorial credit whatsoever. "Vikas is not associated with the edit and post-production. There will be no director credit for anyone. As a producer, after substantial investment of time, money and the efforts of all our technicians and talent, it is our responsibility to complete the film with the best possible resources available to us. Anurag is a partner, he has edited films of other Phantom partners in the past. He agreed to take this responsibility on Reliance's request, and with a professional and commercial understanding. Also, it has been agreed that he will not take any credit," the CEO told a popular publication. The film is being produced by Reliance Entertainment and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment. © Twitter After the #MeToo movement hit Bollywood, a number of celebrities and producers, directors, and musicians were brought into the limelight on grounds of sexual misconduct and harassment. Vikas Bahl being one of them has been accused of the same by two women, one of them being the renowned actress Kangana Ranaut and the makers will think about putting his name back in the credit role if he gets a court order clearing his name out of it. © Viacom 18 Motion Pictueres By all means, the step taken towards maintaining the sanctity of the movement is quite praiseworthy and we hope more people from the film industry take similar steps toward the perpetrators.
  11. Navigating relationships is easy or tough depending solely on whom you ask. Relationships are complicated and need two people to find their functional settings. Often in relationships, there are 'Red Flags' that we ignore due to some misplaced insecurity often resulting in people being falsely content in mediocre relationships. While accepting people and their flaws is generally a good thing, there are cases when it may be apt to cut ties and severe any prospects of a future together. © Reaiance Entertainment Here are a couple of red flags to look out for and generally how to keep an eye out for the future. Red Flags To Ignore This could be something quite pedantic like she doesn't like to drink too much, isn't a big fan of red meat, likes only strawberry ice cream, drinks tea not coffee etc. In any relationship, there must be a compromise, as these small quirks are mostly cute harmless inconsistencies from your own worldview and can be easily ignored for the rest of your days. If you can spend 90% of your time happy around this person, I'd say you're luckier than 50% of the world that gets divorced. Let the small things slide, in time you will learn to love them even. © Eros International Medium Or Average Red Flags The tough stuff now: Your partner may not be into the same shows or movies etc. This may not be so bad but could get annoying in the long run. As long as both people in the relationship are open to discussion and new experiences – media consumption shouldn't be that big a factor. However, if the majority of your conversations are mitigated only by the sound of silence - that type of stuff is what can be considered a pretty big red flag. Consequently, if someone is TOO into you, it could also mean a possible alert. It's not bad to have someone put you on a pedestal but then the expectations also rise proportionately. A lot of this is also down to your own ego and ability to communicate effectively. Still always best to know what you want, before hurting someone else. © Viacom 18 Motion Pictures Major Red Flags The final one: The thing about red flags is that they often appear in other parts of our lives and we mistakenly miss the ones we ought not to have. If they're abusive (verbal or otherwise) or if they're mean to the service staff. Generally speaking, if they're mean to everyone below their own station in life, it may not take very long for you to be treated in a similar vein as well. © Eros International If they're too secretive about their dealings, or their past, but constantly on their phone. Having a disingenuous partner can only cause grief and turmoil in the long run. If they have no other hobbies and interests, if they want to go out and socialize constantly, if they lack any semblance of ambition and only want constant satiation in some form – I would consider such behaviour possible major red flags. Yes, granted that a lot of this is stuff is down to personal preference and choice but the point is - in a relationship we should all aspire to be akin to partners, not hostages. © Fox Star Studios Many of us ignore many such red flags and signs that our friends and loved ones try to point out about a current flame. Sometimes jumping from one relationship and partner to the next may not be the thing to do. Don't be petty and only look for someone's flaws but it is important to recognise these said flaws and acknowledge their effect on your time together. Mostly, people just want to love and be loved. This, however, can be done without compromise and coercion. We give in to the pressures of family, society and partners knowing full well it's not what we want. Thus it is important to figure out how much space, how much energy and time we can devote to our relationships. Sometimes, you might be the red flag yourself. In any case, it's not something to lose sleep over. Acknowledging your own behaviour and patterns might be the first step to being a well-rounded person and a key to havingbetter relationships.
  12. This may sound like a radical notion, but I believe the best time to ask someone out on a first date is Valentine's Day. I mean, think about it- it's a day for love and anything romantic. The city is splashed with red and pink and the tonality of every mind space reads love. So, there couldn't be a more perfect day for a first date. Yes, it may come off a bit clichéd to pick a day like Valentine's Day to go on a first date but in all honesty, your inhibitions will automatically be lowered because you'll be comfortable taking your girl out on a day that celebrates love. © UTV Motion Pictures If you feel that the pressure of making everything 'romantic' and 'cheesy' on Valentine's Day is immense because that's what the day is supposed to be about, then don't let it define your first date. You don't have to define your so-called association and relationship by making it excessively romantic or cheesy. In fact, being casual and spontaneous adds a little more spark to your first date. In any case, you two are absolutely new to each other, so unless you know her damn well, play it safe with your first-date-options. So for all you Tinder and other online dating sites surfers, Valentine's Day seems like the perfect day to ask her out. Here are some casual first-date things you can do on your first date: (1) A Good Comedy Show There is nothing better than some natural humour to spice up your first evening together. Let me tell you that humour is the key ingredient in making anything work. Especially romantic liaisons. So, if you're not naturally funny then head for a comedy show somewhere in the city. Comedy shows are a riot right now, so you'll find one happening with ease. © Pintrest (2) Take-Out Food Date If you're driving that night maybe you can convert your car into a sweet little bistro! Both of you unanimously decide on what you two feel like eating and get a takeaway from the restaurant. Drive to a convenient spot somewhere and maybe have a very personal dinner date together in your car. Only do it if you're not OCD about finding food bits in your car and if she trusts your intentions and is okay with the plan. Don't whisk her away, without her permission. She may just want to be in a public place with you, which is fine too. But in case she's okay with the plan, then play some soulful music have conversations and a bite to eat. Make sure you're not drinking in the car though. That's a big NO-NO! © Pintrest (3) A Live Music Gig Does The Trick Music is a natural healer and enabler! So if you're nervous AF for your first date with the girl you've been fancying, then take her for a nice musical evening. Find out where some good live gigs are happening and head there. You can mention that you'd like her to see a live gig with you and maybe catch dinner later and she'll definitely agree. Try this one out for sure. © Pintrest (4) Netflix & Chill? Okay, maybe you don't have to 'chill' per-say because you know. I'd advise you against sleeping together on the first date itself but if you want to keep away from the Valentine fervour all around town, you can maybe ask her if she'd be interested in watching a few non-Valentine's Day shows with you on Netflix! You can make it seem like you're not asking her for ***, but just for some chilling time. You can pop open a bottle of your favourite poison, get some good food and watch something that interests you both or maybe just spend some time conversing and getting to know each other better. © Screen Gems (5) Good 'Ol Fashioned Bowling Bowling dates are so old-fashioned that they need to be brought back. Remember when bowling alleys were the thing almost 10-15 years ago? Well, you can always recreate that fun by taking her bowling. Bowling alleys are still active and functional around towns, so find the best one around you and take her for a good 'ol game of bowling! © Pintrest (6) Karaoke Is Fun! If you want to do something really fun together, head over for a karaoke gig. Karaoke is fun because you're doing something together and laughing about it at the same time. You both can sing old or new songs together and make a bunch of good memories on your first date itself. It's the least clichéd-romantic thing to do and let's face it, it's fun as hell! © Pintrest Valentine's Day is just a push towards some good first dates. If you're looking for the perfect opportunity to ask her out, this could be it. Just plan it well, so it doesn't seem extra-cheesy or lame all at once. You can make it seem like a casual hangout, or a 'get to know each other' session, in the name of St. Valentine's! So, gather that hidden courage and ask her out now!
  13. Want to know what's worse than an already weird pair of crocs? Turning a croc shoe into a bag! Nope, we're not even kidding. This is not a good start to 2019, fashion-wise. Already a much frowned upon sandal label and a big no-no when it comes to style, crocs have taken their shoe game to a whole other level of just plain weird. Croc's new collaboration with a streetwear label Pizzaslice has resulted in the birth of satan's prodigy itself, the crocs cross-body bag. Have a look without making a what-the-hell-is-that-thing face. © instagram/@pizzaslime © instagram/@pizzaslime The bag itself is a literal croc (one shoe, not a pair) of the label's infamous design with a polyester zipper pouch for storage where the sole usually is. There's also a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap attached to each end of the shoe which makes it a cross between a fanny pack and a cross-body sling. Either way, its absurd. © store.pizzaslime.com Apparently fashion loves the croc shoe. We don't , but that's a whole other story. First there were the Christopher Kane stone embellished crocs, then the Balenciaga platform crocs and now this. © store.pizzaslime.com © store.pizzaslime.com The bag (or shoe? we're still confused) is handmade in Los Angeles and comes with 7 detachable and customizable charms. It is available in two colours, black and yellow. © store.pizzaslime.com If anyone wants one of these, as a collectible or as an accessory, they would have to fight hard for it. It's a unisex accessory and the brand is just making 25 units of these (talk about a limited edition accessory) with each one being retailed at 300$ which is around Rs. 21350 only. © instagram/@pizzaslime Here goes another attempt by Crocs to make this infamous rubber shoe cool again, if it was ever one to begin with. You're still fashion's evil foe, Croc. Maybe 2019 is finally your year.
  14. Due to a very rare genetic condition, this teenager was born without a right forearm and due to his condition, it encouraged him to build a prosthetic arm made entirely out of LEGO pieces. His name is David Aguilar, 19, who is currently studying Bioengineering in Spain. His dream is to design affordable robotic limbs for the differently abled. © Instagram "As a child, I was very nervous to be in front of other guys because I was different, but that didn't stop me from believing in my dreams," he told Reuters. In total, he has built over 4 arms. However, his latest red-and-yellow Lego arm is fully functional and can be bent at the elbow joint. Lego has been David's favourite toy since the age of nine and has become his choice of building material. "I wanted to... see myself in the mirror like I see other guys, with two hands.” © Reuters His latest models are marked with “MK” followed by a number which is basically a tribute to Iron Man and his MK suits. He even has a YouTube Channel called “Hand Solo”, where he aims to show people that nothing is impossible and disability cannot stop them. The video below shows his impressive creations at work. The MKII Prosthetic arm basically works with a Lego engine and a fishing cable. He added: "I would try to give them a prosthetic, even if it's for free, to make them feel like a normal person, because what is normal, right?” Source: Reuters
  15. While mobile gaming has been on the rise and insanely trending right now, nothing can take away the experience a PC can deliver. Even laptops have made phenomenal improvements in the last few years and offer top of the line specifications. Instead of a full-fledged PC, a laptop also provides the comfort of portability. Brands have been working on integrating desktop grade GPU's in laptops, and they can now deliver on par performance. In fact, Nvidia has also released special GPUs for laptops and this, in turn, has not only brought down the price of owning a gaming laptop but also offers a complete package. Based on multiple metrics like display size and quality, processor, GPU, additional gaming-centric features, and battery life, we've compiled a list of the top gaming laptops one can buy in India (they're sorted according to price). 1. Acer Nitro Ryzen 5 (Rs 53,990) © YouTube Acer's launched multiple laptops last year and the Nitro series has been an instant success. While most other machines are powered by Intel's processor, this one is the only exception. It has a 15.6-inch display and is powered by a quad-core AMD Ryzen 5 chipset clocked at 2.0Ghz with 8GB RAM. The laptop has a dedicated Radeon RX 560X GPU with 4GB memory and ships with a 1TB hard drive for storage. It comes with Windows 10 Home pre-installed and weighs 2.7Kg. If you're looking for a budget gaming rig, this one should be your first consideration since it has all basic necessities and doubles up as a gaming machine. 2. HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop (Rs 68,000) © HP There are various configurations available in the series, but we recommend the BC406TX since it has a balanced spec-sheet and is much more portable than the Nitro 5. It has a 15.6-inch display that refreshed at 60Hz and distinct under keyboard lights make the design look very modern. HP claims the battery can charge from 0 to 90 per cent within 90 minutes. Powering the laptop is an Intel Core i5 8300H chipset, clocked at 2.3GHz along with 8GB RAM. The GPU consists of an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 with 4GB dedicated memory. This variant comes with a 1TB hard drive and Windows 10 pre-installed. It is significantly lighter and weighs 2.1Kg. 3. ASUS TUF FX505 (Rs 89,990) © YouTube The new TUF gaming laptops offer an ultra-slim profile and feature a NanoEdge display with a 144Hz refresh rate. The laptop can remain cool for an extended period of time thanks to Anti-Dust Cooling (ADC) system, fan overboost technology, and dual-fan cooling CPU and GPU. The laptop has a 15.6-inch display and is powered by Intel's Core i7-8750H processor with 8GB RAM. It has an Nvidia GeForce GTX1050 Ti GPU with 4GB dedicated memory. Storage options include a hybrid of 1TB hard-drive and 256GB SSD. 4. Lenovo Legion Y530 (Rs 91,990) © YouTube The Legion series offers a significantly better design with tiny bezels and thin body construction. Only one variant of the laptop is officially available in India and it has a 15.6-inch FHD display with a 144Hz refresh rate. Lenovo says it has a dual channel thermal system that offers best-in-class performance output and minimal noise. It is powered by an Intel Core i7-8750H processor that comes with up to six cores and 12 threads for high-end gaming. Alongside is an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 GPU with 4GB dedicated memory. Even though the laptop is fairly thin, the keyboard offers 1.7mm of travel and the speakers are powered by Harman. Lastly, it has a dual storage system consisting of a 1TB hard drive and 128GB SSD. 5. ASUS ROG Strix SCARII (Rs 139,990) © Trusted Reviews ASUS's ROG lineup has been immensely popular and the brand has been doubling down on its presence in India. The SCARII comes with a 15.6-inch 144Hz super-narrow-bezel display. It has a HyperStrike Pro gaming keyboard for better controls and HyperCool Pro technology for longer performance endurance. It is powered by an 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8750H processor, coupled along with an Nvidia GeForce GTX1060 GPU and 16GB RAM. Additionally, with ROG Overstroke technology, it enables earlier key actuation and has a longer overstroke distance. 6. MSI RTX Series (Starts at 79,990) © YouTube MSI launched the new RTX offerings in India this week and multiple configurations are available. Ray Tracing technology is a major stand-out feature for the series and keep in mind, these machines are built for serious gamers only. The GL73 comes with a 15.6-inch display that refreshed at 144Hz and is powered by an 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8750H processor. The laptop comes with 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD and 1TB SATA drive.

  16. You know how sometimes something very absurd and unexpected happens and you're convinced you're in the weirdest timeline? Well, the Indian political parties are doing exactly that right now and I'm like 98% sure we really are in some alternate universe, and it's because of all the rap videos and memes by BJP, Congress, and AAP which are flooding the social media. We all know the elections are coming, so basically, BJP released what seems like a 'Gully Boy'-inspired rap video calling out Congress and its party head Rahul Gandhi. Parties directly targeting each other is not unusual and thanks to social media, we are all a part of it now and honestly, this year's elections will be a social media battle that will give everyone a lot of second-hand embarrassment. Coming back to the rap, it's straight up called 'Congress Se Azadi' so no one accidentally misses the point. With lyrics like 'Baaki poor desh doobe, inki naiya paar hai na' and 'akela insaan fir gaadi teri chaar kyun? Ghar me hain chaar fir room tere aath kyun?', it's hard to miss that BJP has gone all out in calling out the entire Gandhi family. While @RahulGandhi will stay up all night wondering what new lies to peddle tomorrow morning, we leave you with this goal for 2019. Have a happy friday night, people! :) pic.twitter.com/WOXOJ1QPYO — BJP (@BJP4India) February 8, 2019 And, it obviously ended with Modiji, of course. Then comes Congress' reply and it's literally the last thing anyone would ever expect. Remember the new meme involving Nancy Pelosi sarcastically clapping at Donald Trump? Yep, Congress used that viral gif. pic.twitter.com/7OOgHG75Za — Congress (@INCIndia) February 8, 2019 And, looks like AAP didn't want to be left behind, so they just chimed in with this- pic.twitter.com/WvTmEvhUqF — AAP (@AamAadmiParty) February 8, 2019 Honestly, what is even happening anymore? Someone even pointed out the hypocrisy. A song which has a chorus of the slogans chanted by JNU students during protests. You know, the same ones which BJP folks considered a seditious act? Now Bhakts are like, "Oh hey, such a cool rap to diss the Congress! Yaaay!" https://t.co/KjNCeepXVi — that civics guy (@Memeghnad) February 9, 2019
  17. STOP THE PRESSES! There is a new fabric that is slowly but surely taking over the world of fashion. Harvested from cotton farms in the United States, supima cotton is an incredibly exciting fabric that actually represents only 1% of all of the cotton that is grown in the world. Simply put, here is a premium wonder fabric that all Indian men absolutely need to know about. Whether you were looking for the best trousers for men, the best round neck t shirts for men, or the best thumbhole t shirts, here is why you should ABSOLUTELY make sure that they are made using supima cotton to get the absolute most bang for your buck! 1. It's Almost Twice Softer Than Regular Cotton © The March Tee As T shirts primarily tend to be a summer outfit, your level of comfort when you put them on should ideally be of paramount importance. In fact, just how comfortable your t-shirt is going to be becomes even more important when you realise that, by and large, you are also going to be using them to layer up your outfits and create different looks. As such, investing in supima cotton, that happens to be twice softer than regular cotton, pretty much acts as a no-brainer. 2. All The While Being Four Times Stronger As Well © The March Tee Now in normal cases, when a fabric tends to be incredibly soft, it normally isn't able to make any tall claims about its strength. Well, the reason why many people consider supima cotton to be the wonder fabric is because you pretty much get the best of both worlds. Despite being a lot softer than regular cotton, it is also FOUR TIMES stronger than it. This also means that you don't have to fret over the durability of supima cotton. As such, if you want to wear the best t shirts for men out there, you should make sure that their fabric composition comprises of supima cotton. 3. The Length Of Its Fibers Is Longer Too © The March Tee Unlike regular cotton fibres, the fibres of supima cotton are actually 1.5x longer. This ends up causing two immense benefits. Firstly, the longer fiber resists pulling, breaking and tearing, making it a better investment on your end. And secondly, the longer fiber makes for a smoother and softer surface, ensuring that your comfortability is greatly enhanced. 4. The Colours Look Bolder © The March Tee Another largely underrated property of supima cotton? It actually absorbs colour better than regular cotton. Which effectively means that the best plain black t shirts for men, the best white t shirts, and more importantly, t shirts of solid colours need to be made of supima cotton if you want their colours to be long-lasting and not fade away after just a few washes.
  18. Unlike the first T20I match at Wellington, the Indian bowling side looked a lot more in control of the game as the important wickets of Tim Seifert and Colin Munro fell quickly. While the newbie went away on a caught-behind after hitting a four and a six, Munro was dismissed by a Rohit Sharma catch off Krunal Pandya. However, what is probably going to be the major point of discussion of the match is the questionable decision given out by the third Umpire, Shaun Haig when batsman Daryl Mitchell asked for a review on an LBW appeal. While the original decision given by the on-field umpire was against the Kiwi, upon review, it was seen that the ball edged the bat before touching Mitchell's pad. However, the Snickometer did not pick up any sound on the ball making a contact with the bat. Drama at Eden Park, Auckland! A lot of questions will be asked of the third umpire Shaun Haig, Hotspot and DRS. Daryl Mitchell must be gutted and confused at the same time. #NZvIND #INDvNZ #TeamIndia #DarylMitchell #KrunalPandya #DRS #Hotspot #T20I — Ameya Tilak (@ameyatilak) February 8, 2019 All these technologies and still can't figure out a clear inside edge. #indvnz #DarylMitchell — Ankit (@ankitchandram) February 8, 2019 This is what probably led to Haig calling a decision in favour of the on-field umpire's original call and gave Mitchell an 'out'. However, the fans, the Kiwi batsmen and even the Indian players seemed to be surprised with the third umpire's final say. Assembling at the centre of the Eden Park, everyone was asking another as to how exactly was the righty batter out. Daryl Mitchell could be seen literally begging in front of the Indian skipper Rohit Sharma and keeper MS Dhoni to advocate his case in front of the umpires and let him continue to bat. Although Sharma smiled at the hapless batsman, it was evidently clear that he wasn't going to help him as he was asked to leave the field. If a bowling team feels that the umpire's decision to send a batsman away was wrong, they have the right to call him back to the pitch. It is not just a rule on paper. It has been exercised by teams on a number of occasions with former skipper Dhoni himself calling back English batsman Ian Bell after getting him for a run-out on a legitimate confusion. So, in such a scenario, should Rohit Sharma have called Mitchell back?
  19. PM Narendra Modi recently visited Jammu and Kashmir and there's obviously nothing wrong with that, I mean we all know how much he loves travelling. #Wanderlust But, his visit isn't being questioned, what he was doing there at one point is confusing everyone.

The nation wants to know! Yes blame the cameraman, sure. This camera person has done the Hon PM a huge disservice by not showing all the people furiously waving back because there is no way the PM would be waving at an empty lake. https://t.co/YJoEfX8DJ3 — Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) February 4, 2019 Is it?

  20. After what is considered to be one of the greatest comebacks in cricket, Hardik Pandya is here, making a statement and hungry for runs and wickets as he returns from a lower-back injury which he suffered in September 2018 and a suspension for the notorious comments he made on the popular talk show 'Koffee with Karan'. In a heroic return against Kane Williamson's New Zealand in the third ODI, Pandya displayed his greatness as a fielder when he evoked his inner Superman to take Williamson's catch at the mid-on to send the skipper back to the locker room. Pandya also proved his brilliance as a bowler against the Kiwis as he scalped two wickets in the third and fifth match while having a moderate economy rate in the fourth. Finally, the allrounder let the elite batsman in him take over when he wreaked havoc all over the New Zealand bowlers including the in-form pacer Trent Boult, as he thrashed their deliveries left and right to go out of the field and into the stands. However, Pandya's highlight came in the 47th over when he drubbed leg-spinner Todd Astle for three consecutive maximums all around Westpac Stadium. Make no mistake, this isn't the first time Pandya has gone 6-6-6 against the bowlers to become the Devil of their dreams. Here are the five times Hardik Pandya hit a hat-trick of sixes in his career: 1. Vs Pakistan - ICC Champions Trophy 2017 (Group Stage) After Yuvraj Singh was called out for an LBW appeal by Hasan Ali, Pandya entered the field to play alongside skipper Virat Kohli and when Pak captain Sarfraz Ahmed chose left-arm spinner Imad Wasim to deliver against Pandya, he knew this one could be big. 2. Vs Pakistan - ICC Champions Trophy 2017 (Final) This time against Pakistan, Pandya reached the pitch in crisis with six wickets falling before the score of 80 for India. In a failed attempt to bring home the Champions trophy, Pandya humbled Pak leg-spinner Shadab Khan with three straight sixes in the 19th over. This performance also led to Pandya making the fastest half-century in a world ODI final. 3. Vs Sri Lanka - Test Series 2017 (3rd Test) In the third of the three-Test series against Sri Lanka, Pandya decided to play the longest format of the game in a hurry and welcome debutant Sri Lankan bowler Malinda Pushpakumara in a grand gesture. Starting the over with back-to-back 4s, the batsman determined to step it up a little with three consecutive sixes after that, while finally ending the over with a dot, making it the most number of runs scored by an Indian in an over. Pushpakumara to Pandya, 26 runs from the over! pic.twitter.com/QeOgWxBvd6 — Cricking (@CricKingApp) August 13, 2017 4. Vs Australia - ODI Series 2017 (1st ODI) Sending Aussie spinner Adam Zampa for three sixes one after another earned Pandya the name of 'Excitement Machine' by Cricket Australia during the first ODI at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Pandya's 83-run innings helped India win the match by 26 runs (DLS method). 5.

  21. Who doesn't like showing off their arms at parties? But what do you do when you're in a rush and are short on time? How do you get those pumped up biceps? Well, worry not. We've got your back. Here's a short time-saving workout that will get you an insane bicep pump: Firstly, your workout form should be on point, or else you would be just swinging your arms and won't be getting the potential results. Also, the tempo has to be very controlled. Keep the eccentric phase slower than concentric. © Thinkstock The Workout Rep Range for Working Sets: 12, 8, 6 Number of Working Sets: 3 Number of Warm Up Sets: 2 Rep Range for Warm Up Sets: 12 (Pick lighter weight compared to the working set of 12 rep max) Rest Period: 45 seconds-1 Minute The Split A.

Give a one-second pause and then push it up while focusing on your triceps. A2: Lying Triceps Pulley Extention Pro Tip: Grip the pulley rod firmly at shoulder width apart. Bring it down slow and push it up without a jerk. Go for 2 drop sets after the completion of your last working set. A3: Reverse Grip Triceps Pulley Push Down Pro Tip: Give a one-second pause every time you push it down. © Picabay B.

Arms should be hanging down straight and do not take your elbows forward while you curl it up.

Go for at least 3 drop sets here in your last working set. C. Target Muscle: Forearms C1: Farmer's Walk using dumbbells (3 rounds) Pro Tip: Grip the dumbbells from the centre.

  22. If you're looking to start afresh with a new job, or life after a breakup, the first step should be an exciting makeover. A makeover not only changes the way you look but gives you a much-needed boost in your self-esteem so that you can exude confidence wherever you go. We're talking experimenting with your wardrobe: adding diverse colours to it. Adding accessories to your outfit to add extra detail and changing your haircut. Or getting a new perfume. Now, we understand that getting a change in haircut can be super stressful. From deciding what goes with your face shape and hair texture to save yourself from a major disaster. But don't you worry, here is a definite guide to interesting hairstyles that you should definitely try. The best part about these hairstyles is that they've been curated and mastered by Michel Baltzar, Lead Hairstylist and the Creative Director of Training & Education at Jean-Claude Biguine, India. 1. The GI JOE Look (a.k.a The Fading Buzz Cut) © Twitter An extremely popular style in the Latino culture, the fading buzz cut is characterized by tapered sides with a short crop of hair on top. “The best thing about this army inspired buzz cut is that it goes well with all kinds of face structures and especially works great with a well-groomed beard,” says Michel. The contouring if done right, can give you a strong, sharp and slick look. “It's also hassle-free and requires literally no styling or setting on a daily basis,” adds Michel, this look is fairly low maintenance if you don't count the fortnightly salon trips needed to retouch/trim the hair growth. (which is a great bargain for a sharp look like that) 2 The Crop Top © YouTube This style has been around for a long time in Europe, especially in England and is making a strong comeback this year around the world. Think Thomas Shelby from Peaky Blinders, that's exactly what we're talking about. “The crop top is a refined look and is understated yet fashionable. It involves a gradual fade on the side with focused short hair on the top-front,” says Michel. Being highly versatile, you can achieve both clean and messy looks with this cut. “Wax is ideally needed to set the hair in place as per your face structure,” adds Michel. 3 The Slick-Back Look © artofmanliness The classic look requires mid-length hair to give it a tamed appearance. It's a quick way to make your hair look stylish and offers many variations. “Using wax or gel is necessary to create this look, you can either direct it to the back or flip it to one side to give it a structured look,” says Michel. “This hairstyle blends well with an au naturel beard, a moustache or even a fresh clean-shaven look,” adds Michel. 4. The Mad Men Look © madmenfc A hairstyle inspired from the 'Mad Men', this elegant, clean look is a great choice for working professionals. This style is suitable for straight, fine hair but needs a little help of styling products. “You can cop this look by directing your top front hair to the side while following the outline of your head without creating much volume,” says Michel. 5 The BCBG: Bon Chic Bon Genre look © artofmanliness Inspired by Leonardo DiCaprio's legendary haircut in Titanic, this classic style of the 90s is back in force this year. “We love this messy-tousled style for its casual yet playful.
  23. Once, we saw a guy who clicked selfies with almost every Bollywood celebrity attending the IIFA Awards in New York in 2017, and we've also seen a guy who photoshopped himself literally sleeping right next to so many Hollywood celebrities. Now, it's time for a little bit of a combination of both and we have a guy who's in almost every Bollywood celebrity's picture, thanks to Photoshop, of course. This 'unseen friend' had remained unseen for too long, now he's coming out to the world and showing his face. He wants to be seen, finally! Here's him documenting his life chilling with his BFFs.

  24. Lionel Messi has achieved everything there is to achieve on a club-football level. The Barcelona FC star has not only brought his club to the fore on innumerable occasions but also has made a name for himself, in doing so, as arguably the best player in the game in our generation. His greatness at Camp Nou is rock solid and unquestionable. However, the only stain, and a big one at that, on Messi's illustrious career is that of the lack of success on the international level for his country of Argentina. After losing in the Copa America final for four years, the last being in 2016 which also led to him officially retire from the international scenario out of the sheer exasperation, the Argentinian faced his latest disappointment during the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia in which his side was eliminated by France, who went on to win the tournament, in the Round of 16. © Reuters The World Cup loss last year left a real scar on Messi who went AWOL on the team and has been on sabbatical ever since. What irks the supporters of Messi's national team is the fact that he showed no interest in returning until the current President of the Argentine Football Association, Claudio Tapia dropped an easter egg of sorts, on the legend's return in the blue and white. While the star himself has not officially made a statement on playing the 2019 Copa America in June but Team Argentina's interim coach, Lionel Scaloni believes that Messi will come out of this self-inflicted banishment in as early as March. "We will speak with Leo in the days before the March list. When the time is right we will speak," Scaloni told the local reporters as reported by The Times Of India. "I hope he can be here but more than that, we want him to be happy. I have a good feeling." Lionel Messi will be touching 32 years of age by the time Copa America commences. That's a lot of miles put on Leo's legs. With age catching up on him like it does to every other athlete, Messi realises that he needs to take care of his body and choose his games carefully.
  25. The much-awaited teaser of Salman Khan's 'Bharat' is out and looks like the Eid of 2019 is going to be a great one for both Salman and his fans. The teaser begins with an overcrowded train entering a railway station in Pakistan, hinting at the time of Partition of India. Then enters the 'Dabangg' Khan aka Salman and takes over the 1 minute 30 seconds video as Bharat, a man who is beyond caste, creed, religion and surname. In fact, in the voiceover, Salman Khan says that his father named him Bharat, after his country. © Salman Khan Films In the teaser, Salman appears to have multiple professions and adventures. He first appears as a badass motorcyclist who jumps through a ring of fire like it's nobody's damn business. He is then shown as a Navy officer and then an ageing boxer. Honestly, this 1 minute 30 seconds video looks better than the 2 hours 40 minutes called 'Race 3'. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, 'Bharat' also stars Katrina Kaif, Jackie Shroff, Sonali Kulkarni, Disha Patani and Nora Fatehi. For those who don't know, 'Bharat' is a remake of a 2014 Korean movie called 'An Ode To My Father'. 'Bharat' is expected to release in June during Eid.
