  1. With a rather abrupt ending to 'Game Of Thrones', the series finale has left some rather gaping questions, that have now sadly become dead ends for the show. Here's a list of unanswered questions from the show that we will probably never get the answers to: 1. What Was The Point Of Jon's Heritage? © HBO Was there even a point to Jon being a Targaryen? The R+L=J theory was significant to the plotline at the very beginning and had caused a lot of noise. I remember when I first started watching the show, I was rather obsessed with Jon Snow's parentage. At that point, the mystery wasn't the identity of his parents, because it was safely assumed that Ned Stark was his biological father. The real question was, who was Jon's mother? And this used to be subject of many passionate debates by the fans. But now that we know that he was a true born Targaryen with the highest claim to the Iron Throne, does this information, which by the way is the only reason that David Benioff, D. B. Weiss got rights to produce the show in the first place, not matter at all? In the aftermath of the Queen'sassaination when the Lords gathered around to listen to what Tyrion had to say (who, by the way, is a prisoner at this point) and justified why Bran should be King, why did he not consider Jon and his claim to the Throne? Despite slaying the Queen, he does have a pretty strong claim to the Throne. 2. Varys And His Birds © HBO Firstly, Varys' execution was damn shady. How can the Master Of Whisperers, who is so conniving that he survived the most unfavourable of circumstances, be so naive? Talking to Jon directly out in the open was not a great idea, but it certainly is not something Varys would do. What happened to him? Did he hit his head against the wall that caused him to take dumb but potentially life-destroying decisions? But anyway, when he's summoned for his execution, he drops his ring in a pot and burns this one letter that he was writing, which contained the truth about what was going on. The rest of the letters were enclosed and sent off. What happened to them? Do the Lords not know? Why is there no mention of this? And if he did manage to get the message sent across, why is there no stir in all the Kingdoms of Westeros? 3. Arya's White Horse © Twitter Arya finds a white horse at the end of the penultimate episode. Some argued that there could possibly be biblical notions attached to this White Horse. Arya is then seen riding out of King's Landing. But wait, in the next episode, she's seen in King's Landing again. How does that work? What was the horse for then? To traverse past the dead burnt bodies and not step on them? It doesn't make any sense, but rather sounds preposterous instead. 4. Is Winter Still Coming? © HBO Talking about the long drawn-out catchphrase synonymous to 'GoT', we deserved to know if Winter was finally coming in the end or not. The new council meeting by Bran was set in the background of something that looked more spring-like? So, is Winter finally gone for good? 5. Bran the Broken © HBO If every main character had a purpose for which they were brought on the show, what was Bran's purpose? We've been told that the Three-Eyed Raven knows everything and has immense power but if that's the case, why doesn't Bran use it? Why does he sit quietly observing what he already knows is going to happen. And the case against him for not changing things doesn't work either. Like he has done many times before, why did he not warg into someone and potentially save thousands of lives in King's Landing? This does somehow make him an accomplice to genocide. But in retrospect, this could've possibly been his plan all along? In normal circumstances, no one would make Bran the King. He's a cripple who apparently can't father children and couldn't possibly further the lineage. And in 'Game of Thrones', we've seen the darkest of things being pulled off by characters just get their hands on the throne. Everyone's creepily obsessed with it, case in point, Daenerys. Could it be possible, that Bran schemed it all in his favour because he can clearly control the past and the present? 6. The Honeycomb and the Jackass This might seem a little irrelevant, but hear me out first. One of the series' long-running secrets, Tyrion's story about bringing a honeycomb and a jackass to a brothel, is a legend in its own right. The joke had been teased two times before the finale- when he was a prisoner at the Eyrie, in Season 1, and during a scene in Season 6, where he shared wine with Grey Worm and Missandei. In Season 1, during Tyrion's trial, he attempts to crack the honeycomb joke, which seems so out-of-place because he's a prisoner being tried for his life, why is he being given the liberty to speak at all? Then in the final episode of Season 8, when Tyrion is Hand of the King to Bran and has a Small Council Meeting, he brings up the joke again, and for a moment, we feel like we are finally going to hear the end of it, which would be perfect given how the show was coming to an end. But, no, the camera cuts and we realize how irrelevant this discussion was. This clearly makes a strong case for bad writing. Instead of showing what's relevant for better closure, we get this. A pointless, incomplete joke. 7. Where Are Daario Nahaaris, Meera Reed & Ellaria Sand? © HBO Daario Nahaaris was a Tyroshi mercenary that was once Dany's adviser and lover but was left behind by Dany when she realized forging new alliances in King's Landing will be more fruitful than taking old ones. What is he doing now? What about Meereen? Meera Reed got Bran back safely to Winterfell, protecting him from the White Walkers and then the plot conveniently forgot about her. Ellaria Sand was locked up in the dungeons to die after watching her daughter die. Did she end up dying? Why did we not get closure on these crucial characters? 8. Why Is There Still A Night's Watch? © HBO What does a Night's Watch defend if there are no White Walkers in the first place? Does it need to exist anymore? A question that no one seems to bother about, except Jon, when he was exiled to the Night's Watch. This is probably why he abandoned it and set on an adventure to discover a world further North. If these scenes held no significance to the main narrative, they shouldn't have been included in the first place. Instead, they could've probably been replaced with significant content that would've made Dany's and Jon's actions convincing, leading up to a satisfactory finale with no loopholes.
  2. Yesterday, we came across Babu Muddrappa, an auto driver in Bengaluru who took an abandoned pregnant woman to hospital, paid her medical bills and even took care of the baby as his own, when her mother fled. We salute Babu for everything he did for the mother and the baby. People like Babu are rare to find, but not impossible and this brings us to another unsung hero of our society, Maqbool. In case you didn't know, there is a curfew going on in riot-hit Hailakandi, Assam. In the ongoing communal clashes, Maqbool, with prayers on his lips, drove his auto-rickshaw as fast as he could to take a pregnant Hindu woman to hospital. © Pexels If there was a face for the idiom, "A friend in need is a friend indeed", it will probably be Maqbool's, who helped his neighbour Rubon Das and his wife Nandita in the time of crisis. Rubon was desperately calling his near and dear ones to help him arrange for an ambulance to take his wife to hospital, "I was trying to calm my wife down saying someone will surely come to take us to hospital in Hailakandi town." Nandita's pain increased, but no help came for them in the curfew hit area. © Pexels At that time, Maqbool heard Rubon's story and without thinking twice he rushed to his residence with his auto-rickshaw. Maqbool was only worried about whether he will make it in time or not, while speeding through the roads. He said, "I was trying to comfort them…. telling them everything will be fine. But I myself was praying." Thanks to Maqbool, Nandita who was in an advanced stage of labour, could reach the hospital on time and give birth to a boy who they have now named, 'Shanti'. Honestly, there couldn't have been a better name than that. © Pexels "We need more such examples of Hindu-Muslim unity and amity," said Hailakandi Deputy Commissioner Keerthi Jalli, when she visited the new-born baby and the parents. She also congratulated Maqbool for helping his friend in the time of distress. Just when we think the society has become selfish and heartless, where no one wants to help one another; some people come around and make this world a better place to live in with their selfless acts of kindness.
  3. This Eid, viewers are in for a treat as they have two spectacular options - Salman Khan's 'Bharat' and 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix', and fans are curious to know which film will rule at the box office. But what if we tell you that there's a major showdown looming between 'Bharat' distributor, Anil Thadani, and Fox Star Studios, who want to release 'Dark Phoenix'? Yes, you heard that right. The exhibitors are completely stuck between the ugly war of the two distributors. 'Bharat' is a film that is awaited by millions, considering Salman being the lead and it can create a big spin at the box office. On the other hand, we have a big banner film 'Dark Phoenix' that also has a loyal fan base in India. A trade source told us, “Anil Thadani has told the exhibitors that if they didn't give full shows to Bharat, he won't give them the Friday release 'De De Pyaar De'. It's not just Anil, but Fox is also creating troubles. So, Fox has asked exhibitors and distributors to give 'Dark Phoenix' two shows during Eid. If the exhibitors fail to do so, Fox will not be giving their major releases that include 'India's Most Wanted', 'Brahmastra' and 'Mission Mangal'. The exhibitors are in for a show now and are facing big trouble with two big ventures.” The source also added, “Anil had similar issues at the time of 'Raees' clash with 'Kaabil'.” We hope that the two production houses solve this major issue and find a solution so that both the releases don't suffer. Fans would be majorly disappointed if they have to choose between Bharat and Dark Phoenix. What do you think about it? Tell us in the comments below!
  4. When we think about the game of cricket, we think about a game of sheer passion, emotions and even a way of life for some of the fans who are tilted towards the 'crazy' side, which is not something to frown upon. One must have a passion for something in life and cricket, clearly is a popular choice. Take this young boy from Tamil Nadu who cries out a river when his idol, his 'Thala' got dismissed on an objectionable run-out at the hands of fielder Ishan Kishan in the Indian Premier League final against Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians. MS Dhoni run-out! Out or Not out? https://t.co/HW7L7XMx68 — Aditya Pandey (@adityapandey148) May 15, 2019 The fact that the decision was announced on the giant screen inside the stadium after the third umpire reviewed the footage again and again, convincing along the way, all Dhoni supporters thought that their captain just might have made it across the crease. But when the screen showed “OUT” in that big red font, this little man lost his cool and let his emotions get the better of him. Dhoni not out..... 3rd umpire sethuruvan ððð pic.twitter.com/PWXpeUpvps — Siva (@Siva68079003) May 13, 2019 Sitting in his mother's lap, the boy can be seen expressing his emotions. Watching Dhoni walk back towards the dug-out, he curses out at the third umpire, Nigel Llong who, let's just say is not a very popular character ever since he broke a door at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore after getting tired of arguing with Royal Challengers Bangalore captain, Virat Kohli. Anyhow, this is what the boy said in Tamil, according to The Times of India: “Third umpire will commit suicide for the wrong decision of the umpire on the ground.” In the background, his mother tries to convince him by saying that the Indian Premier League is scripted and that it was because of “match-fixing” that the third umpire gave the unjust decision for Mahi's wicket. In the defence of the young boy, we are still not 100% sure whether Dhoni was in fact out or not as one camera shows that his bat was well inside the crease when the ball struck the bails off while the second camera shows that Dhoni did not make it to the line in time. Even the adults of social media could not come to a proper conclusion: DHONI WAS NOT OUTð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ð¡ — KhushbuSundar â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ (@khushsundar) May 12, 2019 I m Dhoni fan..

  5. When Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings were playing with all their might to clinch the IPL 2019 trophy; people watching the match live and the ones who were watching it on TV were busy crushing over this mystery MI fangirl.

In fact, the camera person should get a separate award for solely focusing on the girl, when the match was in its crucial stage.

They are also good at finding out who the mystery girl is, just like they did with other IPL teams' fangirls. So, once again, people tapped into their inner Sherlock and found out who this girl is, who just couldn't stop cheering for Mumbai Indians.

Just like what happened with Deepika Ghose, who recently opened up about the hate she got on social media after going viral as the RCB fangirl.
  6. Virat Kohli-led Indian Premier League franchise, Royal Challengers Bangalore were literally the least impressive team to play in the league in the past month and a half as they finished at the bottom of the points table with 11 points, 5 wins and 8 losses under their name. The men in Red and Gold ended their IPL 2019 journey with a meaningless 4-wicket win against a depleted SunRisers Hyderabad on 4th May 2019 as Shimron Hetmyer and Gurkeerat Mann rallied RCB to victory in the final over, but that was the end of the road for the Play Bold Team this season. The byproduct of the match, however, was an RCB fan getting all the fame in the world overnight. While the match was in progression, the big screen present at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium displayed Deepika Ghose, a die-hard RCB fan, cheering for her side. Soon after, her video took over the internet and made her go viral, bringing in more than 2,75,000 followers on her Instagram account within the span of a day. View this post on Instagram #RCB girl forever â¤ï¸ð A post shared by deepika (@deeghose) on May 4, 2019 at 12:51pm PDT Her following became so crazy that fake Instagram accounts began to pop up in her name, displaying some of her best images online. However, when the good kind of fans were done idealising her, the bad, vulgar and unruly trolls of the internet got their eyes on the fan who became famous as 'The RCB Girl'. Concerned with all the negativity, the vulgarity and the horrific things she got to read about herself led her to come out and address this issue openly: View this post on Instagram My name is Deepika Ghose & that is probably the only thing that is being said about me which is 100% TRUE. It all started on the Saturday of the RCBxSRH IPL match. I have been attending RCB matches for many years. It has become a family tradition to watch, cheer and support our Bengaluru team. When we went for the match on May 4th, I did not expect it to be different. I did not want any recognition or realise the number of times that I was on camera. I am no celebrity, just an ordinary girl who was enjoying the match. I did nothing to warrant the kind of attention that ensued after the TV images appeared & I certainly did not seek it. I have much to be proud of - I am a kind, artistic & hardworking woman. I am well educated, well-travelled and well loved by my friends and family. I have many talents and have excelled at my work as a stylist and as a dancer/teacher/entrepreneur. I do NOT consider being seen on TV at an IPL match an achievement. Many people ask me how my life has changed. It has NOT! The only thing that has changed is the number of my Instagram followers. I am as much in shock as all of you. While I am grateful for the love, I am disturbed by the unnecessary negativity. It has been an extreme case of abuse, trauma and mental torture. I am confused as to how people found my name/profile. My identity, privacy & life have been hacked in an instant. A lot of the overnight followers are men who have used this platform to be crude, vulgar, vicious & entirely disrespectful. Even more shocking is the hate I have received from women. How quick & cruel you have been to say mean things to & about me without even knowing me. I AM ONE OF YOU! The world desperately needs more women supporting & uplifting each other. I am appalled by how I have been judged & condemned instead of being given a compassionate hearing. Stop & think about how it is as a girl to have been subjected to this unwanted attention. So many people have asked me why they should follow me - and you are right to question this. Now that this has happened, I am going to turn this into something genuine, meaningful & fabulous. Yes, I am #theRCBgirl but I am SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT. A post shared by deepika (@deeghose) on May 12, 2019 at 3:33am PDT This is the full statement from Deepika Ghose: My name is Deepika Ghose & that is probably the only thing that is being said about me which is 100% TRUE.

  7. HBO and 'Game of Thrones' actually made everyone's day yesterday when a single Starbucks cup appeared out of nowhere in a scene and became the most-talked-about cameo of the year. © HBO But, obviously that's not the first mistake the show has made and it probably won't be the last (yes, I know only two episodes are left but I think HBO is capable of pulling that off). Yes, it's a huge show with more people working on it than you can count, little mistakes are bound to happen. But then again, we can look at it in a different way as well - so many people are working on this show, there should be an equal amount of people to just pay great attention to all the minute details. Whatever the case may be, it's still funny to see stuff like this, so here's a bunch of hilarious accidents like the coffee cup or just straight up continuity errors: 1. Queen Of Wigs © HBO How many different wigs does a Khaleesi need? At least two, apparently, in just one scene. Yes, a lot of elaborate braided hairstyles will probably be hard to keep constant, but it does kinda affect the continuity, especially to people who pay attention to everything. 2. Sansa Is A Targaryen For A Hot Second © HBO Back in the first season, the opening credits did show the Targaryen sigil right next to Sophie Turner's name. Well, Sansa was a Lannister at one point, and now she's also a Targaryen. 3. Daenaerys Was Also A Lannister And Not A Targaryen At One Point © HBO Well, similar mistake, again. This time, it was the Lannister sigil that showed up next to Emilia Clarke's name. Well, looks like she should add another thing to her already essay-length name. 4. That One E-Mail Notification Apparently, you can hear someone receiving an e-mail in the scene where Margaery Tyrell visits the orphanage back in Season three. I honestly couldn't hear anything even after putting my ear literally on my laptop's speaker. But, enough people have heard it so, it is a legit thing. 5. Where Is Catelyn Stark's Hand? Kinda a minor little problem, but hey, it's still a mistake. 6. Melisandre's Necklace © HBO In season six, it's revealed that Melisandre's necklace is this magical thing that works as an anti-ageing serum for her. As soon as the red woman removes it, she turns wrinkly and old. But, a lot of people recalled that the continuity error with it since she was seen at least once without her necklace while taking a bath. 7. Stannis' Charger © HBO Yes, even though they live in a world with no electricity, they still need to charge stuff. 8. Jon Snow's Rubber Sword © HBO Okay fine, I agree it would be hard to carry around a large metal sword while shooting for long periods but someone should've made sure there wasn't a flaccid sword flopping around in the real scene. 9. Shireen Baratheon's Hair © HBO Back in season one when Ned Stark's head was still attached to his body, he found out about Cersei and Jamie's incestuous relationship basically because of the colour of the hair of all the Baratheon and Lannister children. Apparently, all real Baratheon children had black hair but Shireen is obviously a Baratheon with almost Lannister-like blonde hair. 10. Where Is Grenn's Sword? Bro, are you picking up the sword or not? Or did you just throw it a second after picking it up? 11. Dead Bodies Disappearing Yes, we've seen dead people walking around on this show but this obviously wasn't the case in this scene. 12. A Poor Knight Not Being Able To Handle The Sword So sad, everyone's doing it so swiftly and flawlessly while you're just struggling and hoping no one notices.
  8. Cricket needs no introduction in India. The country considers the gentleman's game to be a religion and worships cricketers like demigods. The popularity of cricket can be ascertained from the success of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Currently in progress, India's cash-rich T20 tournament has kept everyone occupied with its fair dosage of matches in the ongoing season. And when the 2019 edition of the IPL comes to an end on 12th May, cricket fans will be treated to the coveted ICC World Cup, slated to begin later this month. While a majority of the Indian population is enjoying the cricket season, some are really tired of its overdose. Whether you're chilling with friends or making those tiring presentations at office, there's no escaping from cricket. Though we can't really do much about the overdose of cricket, the advent of a promising motorsport league in India might just prove to be a saviour. © X1 Racing League India's famed international car racers Armaan Ebrahim (29) and Aditya Patel (30) have joined hands to launch the Xtreme1 (X1) Racing League in India. Expected to kickstart in October this year, the X1 Racing League is a franchise-based tournament that will see eight teams locking horns in what promises to be a thrilling battle on the track. Ushering in a new era of racing in India, the X1 Racing League will be held in a mix of track and street circuits where the eight city-based franchise will be seen using two cars (custom-made two-seater sports car) and four drivers to pip each other to the title. Backed By FMSCI © X1 Racing League The X1 Racing League is backed and sanctioned by the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI), the governing body of motorsports in the country. The league has entered into a long-term exclusive commercial rights partnership with Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI), granting exclusive rights including sponsorship, broadcasting, advertising, intellectual property, franchising and new league rights, amongst others exclusively for city-based 4W racing events and/or competitions in league format. Top Drivers In The Fray © X1 Racing League Talks are on to rope in well-known race drivers including former Formula One, Formula E, Indy 500, Le Mans and NASCAR drivers to the X1 Racing League which also happens to be the world's first city-based franchise league in motorsports. Each team will comprise of one international male driver, one international female driver, one Indian international driver and one Indian domestic driver. Women Empowerment © X1 Racing League In a strong move towards the inclusion of women in motorsports in India and pushing the theme of gender neutrality in sports, female drivers will race along with male drivers in this first-of-its-kind format. Boost For Youngsters © X1 Racing League The league aims to discover India's next racing superstar by providing equal opportunities to rookies and national champions through a platform where they compete with the best in the world. League Season © X1 Racing League Races will take place on Saturdays and Sundays. Each race will be of 45 minutes and there will be 3 races per day, with innovative race formats. Noida's Buddh International and the MMRT in Chennai are the obvious choices for the track venues and the street races will be announced by the founders in the near future. It was in 2011 when motorsport enthusiasts were given a first-hand experience of competitive racing as Formula One Grand Prix came to India. But, unavoidable hurdles - including tax disputes - forced the F1 GP away from India after just three seasons. Since then, competitive motorsport racing leagues have eluded India, leaving the fans disheartened. But, the advent of the promising X1 Racing League is undoubtedly a massive step in the promotion of motorsports in the country.
  9. 'Avengers: Endgame' turned out to be one of the most well-received films at the global box-offices in recent times. MCU fans thronged the movie theatres in Brobdingnagian waves, underlining the loyal (and almost fanatic) fanbase the franchise enjoys across the globe. For proof, get this. In the very first week of its release, 'Avengers: Endgame' rocked the box office with collections that went well beyond Rs 260 crore. Not just that but it has also managed to break quite a few filmy records, not just in India, but internationally too. © Marvel Studios In India, Salman Khan starrer 'Sultan' enjoys the highest first week box office collection at Rs 208.82 crore, followed by 'Tiger Zinda Hai' at Rs 206.04 crore and Ranbir Kapoor starrer 2018 hit 'Sanju' at Rs 202.51 crore. 'Baahubali 2' was the only film to challenge these numbers with it's first week box office earnings touching Rs 247 crore. However, Marvel's 'Avengers: Endgame' has outdone each one of those milestones by a good margin, even exceeding the success of 'Avengers: Infinity War', which had collected Rs 226 crore in India. © Marvel Studios 'Avengers: Endgame' has managed to wipe out numerous lifetime numbers in the blink of an eye, by becoming the fastest movie to gross 2 billion dollars at the box office in just 11 days. It became the second highest grosser of all times after crossing 'Titanic' with 2.18 billion dollars. Here are the four other all-time biggies to achieve this feat, making 'Avengers: Endgame' the fifth film to score over 2 billion dollars at the box office so quickly. 1. Avatar © Lightstorm Entertainment The 2009 science fiction epic film directed by James Cameron had earned 2.78 billion dollars. 2. Titanic © Paramount Pictures The 1997 epic romance and disaster film, also directed by James Cameron, has 2.18 billion dollars to its credit. 3. Star Wars: The Force Awakens © Walt Disney Studios J. J. Abrams' 2015 epic space-opera film bagged a whopping 2.06 billion dollars at the box office. 4. Avengers: Infinity War © Marvel Studios The superhero film and 'Endgame' predecessor pocketed a total of 2.04 billion dollars in 2018. Even by Bollywood standards, 'Endgame', with its estimated Rs 375 crore collection, surpasses the lifetime earnings of a number of blockbuster Bollywood flicks by a huge margin. With 'Sanju' at Rs 342.53 crore, 'PK' at Rs 340.8 crore and 'Tiger Zinda Hai' Rs 339.25 crore, 'Endgame' might soon turn these numbers into history. However, the fight might still go strong against Bollywood's highest grosser of all times, 'Dangal', which had bagged Rs 387.38 crore in its lifetime.
  10. With the ICC World Cup 2019 just a month away, the captain of the Pakistan cricket team, Sarfraz Ahmed, was found making some rather bold statements during a press conference ahead of leaving for England. Considering themselves as the 'underdogs' of the tournament, Ahmed believes that the level of pressure they will be carrying on their shoulders starting their World Cup campaign against the Windies on 31st May 2019, will be manageable. "Look, when we go as favourites, then it's a problem, but if we go as underdogs then other teams feel the danger, so I think being underdogs is good for us and eases the pressure," he said. Eyebrows were raised only when Ahmed mentioned Virat Kohli's Team India in his comments. "For us all nine matches are important so we will take every match as a match against India," said the 31-year-old. "We have beaten India in a bigger event recently so we will have that advantage.” The skipper was referring to their victory in the Champions Trophy final in 2017, in which Ahmed and team dominated the Men in Blue, while winning the match by 180 runs. Pakistan have also won the 1992 World Cup and the 2009 World Twenty20. However, when it comes to the World Cup, India and Pakistan have clashed six times, none of which were won by the perennial rivals of India. As expected, as soon as the statement was made available online, the hardcore fans of the Indian cricket team trolled the wicket-keeper batsman hard and left nothing to the imagination: Meanwhile We INDIANS and INDIAN TEAM be like pic.twitter.com/Cir8KThb1D — Silly Strom (@SillyStrom) April 23, 2019 2017 isko recent lagta hai. — Rahul (Pray for Sri Lankað±ð° ) (@rk5444) April 23, 2019 Looks like he has forgotten the 2 embarrassing defeats against India in Asia cup recently ðð — Abhi Panchal (@iamabhi1909) April 23, 2019 India is 6 - 0 to Pakistan in the World cups, where does this lad live? — ðð ððð®ð¿ðð ðµð²ð¿ð² (@hathnostalgia) April 22, 2019 I don't give a damn what Safaraaz says — Raman Chakrabarty (@RamanChakrabar2) April 23, 2019 Ahmed and his boys will be participating in a three-game warm-up followed by a five-match ODI series and a solitary Twenty20 International with the Englishmen before the World Cup takes place in England and Wales.

  11. We certainly live in scary times and the fear doesn't let us hope for a time when everything will finally be at peace. The recent bomb blasts in Sri Lanka are a prime example of what I am talking about and it reeks of ineffable and unthinkable hate and radicalism. (c)Reuters On Easter Sunday, 8 violent bomb blasts at 3 churches and 3 luxury hotels killed and injured numerous people in the capital, Colombo. The death toll is still rising, currently at 160, while over 400 people have been injured. This attack has broken the lull after the civil war ended in 2009, in Sri Lanka. The three hotels that were bombed were Shangri-La Colombo, Kingsbury Hotel Colombo and the Cinnamon Grand Colombo. More than 50 were killed in the St. Sebastian Gothic-style Catholic Church in Katuwapitiya, north of Colombo, and 25 or more people were also killed in an attack in an evangelical church in Batticaloa in Eastern Province. 24 killed 200 injured in multiple blasts in churches and hotels in #SriLanka pic.twitter.com/2dcsDTkOE8 — Faizan ÙÛضا٠फà¥à¤à¤¾à¤¨ (@faizan_ul_haq) 21 April 2019 No immediate claims have been made or speculated yet regarding who led the attack. In a country which was at war internally, for two decades with Tamil separatists, till 2009 has seen a lot of bomb blasts in the past, and to be reminded of the same horror once again is nothing short of earth shattering and traumatic. (c)Reuters “I strongly condemn the cowardly attacks on our people today. I call upon all Sri Lankans during this tragic time to remain united and strong,” he said in a Tweet. “Please avoid propagating unverified reports and speculation. The government is taking immediate steps to contain this situation.” the Sri Lankan Prime Minister, Ranil Wickremesinghe released a statement earlier today. Indian politicians along with our President and Prime Minister also shared their thoughts on the attack on Twitter. Strongly condemn the horrific blasts in Sri Lanka. There is no place for such barbarism in our region. India stands in solidarity with the people of Sri Lanka. My thoughts are with the bereaved families and prayers with the injured. — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) 21 April 2019 People in Sri Lanka have come out in solidarity to help the victims in any way they can. Currently there are massive queues at the blood donation camp there and it's nothing short of overwhelming. Time to unite #SriLanka.

All we hope for is the terrorist group behind this attack is caught and dealt with adequately and the country experiences peace in all its glory, soon.
  12. One of the leading ladies of international cricket and Kiwi superstar Hayley Jensen and her fellow athlete from Down Under, Nicola Hancock decided to make their cricketing partnership last a lifetime, as the couple tie the knot last weekend. Having been teammates for two straight seasons for Australia's Big Bash League franchise, Melbourne Stars, the couple saw a lot of individual success in the T20 league. While Jensen, an all-rounder, won the prestigious Una Paisley medal for being Victoria Women's Premier Cricket league's best player of the 2017-18 season, Hancock finished the latest season of the BBL as her squad's second-highest wicket-taker with 13 scalps in 14 games with an average of 19.92. The official news of the wedding was broken online by Hancock's team last evening: From #TeamGreen, congratulations to Stars bowler Nicola Hancock who married her partner Hayley Jensen last weekend! ðpic.twitter.com/QvWb7Ue0Qx — Melbourne Stars (@StarsBBL) April 18, 2019 "From #TeamGreen, congratulations to Stars bowler Nicola Hancock who married her partner Hayley Jensen last weekend!" the picture was captioned. Australia legalised same-*** marriage in December 2017 while New Zealand granted it the royal assent way back in 2013. However, as soon as the wedding pictures were available online, homophobia took over with the blink of an eye and flooded the team's twitter handle with slurs demeaning same-*** marriage: It isn't ryt — NITESH KUMAR (@nkojha9060) April 19, 2019 Challenge to Natural law — Kapil Kumar (@KapilKu03594795) April 19, 2019 Oh no It is unnatural marrige I think human is very beg animals — बà¥à¤°à¥à¤à¤à¤¾à¤° मà¥à¥à¤®à¥à¤®à¤¿à¤² फारà¥à¤à¥ (@MuzzammilFar) April 19, 2019 What a great indecent choice this sodomy women make to defile themselves — Joshua (@Joshua3059) April 18, 2019 If all girls will marry to each other then what will happen with boys or u can say who will marry with boys.

Maybe that is the question that needs to be answered now. With the LGBTQ community being welcomed into society with open arms, why is it that marriage, a gesture to celebrate love, needs for the people involved to “prepare themselves”? Do straight couples need to worry about the kind of criticism that they might face from society after they get married? Sure, homosexuality has become a part of the world that we live in and sure people now have the right to identify themselves as “gay”, but normalising it, in our mundane lives, is something that continues to be our "to-do” list
  13. The long weekend is here and in case you're not doing anything, just being a couch potato, nursing bad health or loaded with work which barred you from leaving town, then my guess is that like most of us, binge-watching will be the only plan you'll have. Here are 5 interesting suggestions for you for this weekend: 1. Hanna- This drama series follows a 15-year-old girl, Hanna who is being hunted down by a CIA agent. This dark show could be a good binge watch for you! 2. The OA 2- Brit Marling is back with her brilliance. If you followed Prairie and her friends travelling across dimensions of time in the 1st season and were left shook with what followed, this one is more layered and complicated like something you didn't imagine. 3. McMafia- Nawaz fans already devoured it last year but in case you haven't, this is a good show to binge watch. The BBC drama has Nawaz playing a Mumbai importer, Dilly Mahmood. The series revolves around Alex Goldman who is brought up by Russian exiles. Makes for a good binge watch. 4. Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé- You don't need any more reasons to watch the madness and the sheer dedication that goes behind the planning of a Beyoncé concert. This is basically a testament of her persona, just watch it already. 5. Our Planet- This series explores the wonders of the world in eight parts. This insane project was in the works for over 4 years and was shot in over 50 countries. Just prepare to be mesmerised.
  14. Game of Thrones season 8 premiere was the show's most-watched episode ever. That's right, it was watched by a record 17.4 million viewers when it aired. But you know what? That number could have been much higher if more people would have watched it, you know, legally. According to a digital-piracy analytics company Muso, the “Winterfell” episode was pirated 54 million times globally in just 24 hours. The pirated views easily dwarfs the legal views that came on the day it was aired. Of course, the number will likely go up in the coming days as more people start watching it, but so will the pirated views. © HBO MUSO's data also shows that the most pirated views came from India. Roughly 10 million views out of the estimated 54 million came from India. MUSO speculates that the piracy in India was higher due to the difficulty of accessing the show there. China, on the other hand, airs a censored version of the show, so 5 million pirated views came from there too. United States, despite having the easiest access to the show via HBO, came third in charts with close to 4 million illegal views. So yes, it looks like people are not ready to pay to watch 'Game of Thrones' after all. Anyway, the next episode of 'Game of Thrones' season 8 airs Monday, April 22 at 6.30 AM on Hotstar in India. So, you still have some time to catch up if you haven't already.
  15. While the entire nation is filled with hope after the announcement of a 'balanced' Indian squad for the World Cup 2019, critics are still divided over the selection of Dinesh Karthik over the popular choice Rishabh Pant, in the 15-man squad. Answering this, the five-member panel of the BCCI that announced the squad, gave an explanation behind opting for Karthik's experience over Pant's flair. MSK Prasad, the Chief Selector of the Indian team said: “All of us felt that either Pant or Kartik will only come into playing XI if Mahi is injured. If it is a crucial match, wicket-keeping also matters, so that is the only reason why we went ahead with Dinesh Kartik otherwise Rishabh Pant was almost there.” Well deserved place for DK. — KD Deshmukh (@ImKrishna423) April 15, 2019 Very Gud BCCI...DK got wht he deserves â¤ï¸ — Ayega To Modi Hi ð®ð³â¤ï¸ (@shikhag802) April 15, 2019 come on guyz pant is young guy he needs lot of time to be in world cup squad... may be in next worldcup he will be there dnt wry.. dk deserves this opportunity... — joseph (@joseph_kurvila) April 15, 2019 While all the dropped catches and sloppy work with the gloves behind the stumps cost Pant a ticket to the United Kingdom, Karthik made it to the 15 on the grounds of apparently better glovework. Despite his flamboyance with the bat, Pant leaves a lot to be desired in terms of wicketkeeping. The Delhi lad's verbal volleys might be fun to listen to from the stump mic, but he's already conceded more than 100 byes in his short stint as the wicketkeeper of the Indian Test team. © AP On the other hand, Dinesh Karthik, who has been around the team since the past decade, was the first choice keeper for the Indian team before the arrival of Dhoni. It seems only legit that he be given one last shot at attaining World Cup glory before the torch is passed on to the Pant generation of Indian keepers. Apart from Pant, the exclusion of Ambati Rayudu also divided the house on the internet. In his absence, either Vijay Shankar or KL Rahul will be asked to fill in the number four spot. Elsewhere, the usual suspects' slot right in. There's the opening pair of Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma, followed by skipper Virat Kohli. The lower middle order features World Cup-winning former captain MS Dhoni, and Kedar Jadhav, followed by Hardik Pandya and the bowlers. Umesh Yadav misses out and so does Khaleel Ahmed. Ravindra Jadeja finds a place as an experienced bowling option, who can also chip in with the bat.
  16. In 2018, a depleted Indian cricket team snatched victory from the jaws of defeat in the Nidahas Trophy final in Sri Lanka. The thrilling victory against Bangladesh will be remembered for two things: Dinesh Karthik's match-winning knock and Vijay Shankar's struggles. While the former turned the tide in India's favour with a stunning batting display, the latter's sluggish innings almost cost his side the game and trophy. Following India's emphatic triumph, while Karthik was being hailed for his batting prowess, Shankar became the subject of immense criticism on the social media. Since that match, a lot has changed. © Twitter The 28-year-old might have not have had very good memories from that final, but he hasn't allowed his forgettable international debut to affect his performances on the field. Making most of the limited opportunities he has got so far, Shankar has, time and again, proved his worth with both bat and ball. And, that's exactly why he has been included in Team India's 15-man squad for the all-important ICC World Cup 2019. A versatile batsman who is more than capable of batting at any position in the middle-order, Shankar's ability to mould his innings according to the situation is what makes him a valuable addition to the Indian line-up. In case of a collapse, the Tamil Nadu cricketer can hold the fort at one end in pressure situations, and, if need be, he can accelerate the innings in the later stages of the game with plenty of big strokes in his armoury. © Twitter If his artistry with the willow adds value to the Indian middle-order, Shankar's medium-paced deliveries further bolster his side with an extra bowling option. Though he might still be fairly inexperienced and doesn't have much runs or wickets under his belly, Shankar is still a vital cog that provides the much-needed balance to the Indian team as they chase glory in England & Wales. Many did argue his selection ahead of Ambati Rayudu, who has performed more often than not, but it is Shankar's ability to contribute in all the three facets of the game that makes him a safer and a better bet than the specialist batsman. While we can't really predict if Shankar would occupy the hotly-debated No. 4 slot or not, his addition to the Indian squad by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) surely got the cricket fans excited on social media. This means the #No4 debate is still open. Options now are Vijay Shankar or Virat Kohli with Rahul at no. 3. People who watch a lot of domestic cricket really rate Vijay Shankar. Happy for him but his temperament will be tested. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) April 15, 2019 Jadeja and Vijay Shankar both make the cut as I thought. Overall, very balanced side. Must feel for Pant though. Lost out marginally. But also lesson for him to improve his wk skills https://t.co/7Hqz0XSMLe — Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) April 15, 2019 What vijay shankar offers is 3 dimensional...batting, bowling and can field.

  17. Pankaj Tripathi is the man of the hour, and it wouldn't be wrong to say that his time has finally come after a long overdue. From being a hit as Sultan Qureshi in 'Gangs of Wasseypur' and catching everyone's attention, to making Kaleen Bhaiya such an iconic character, the audience just needs to see the man in action once to keep coming back to him over and over again. (c) Instagram Last seen in 'Luka Chuppi' as the goofball Babulal, his charms have now made hundreds of wishes come true as the makers of Irrfan Khan starrer 'Angrezi Medium' roped in Tripathi for a cameo in the film. 'Angrezi Medium' also marks Irrfan's comeback after beating cancer. However, it is Tripathi who is beyond happy to be working with Irrfan in the film. This will be Irrfan Khan and Pankaj Tripathi's first collaboration together, and in a recent interview the letter admitted that he had always wanted to work with Irrfan. (c) Maddock Films Pankaj told the media that, "It is my love and respect for Irrfan and my friendship with Dinoo [Dinesh Vijan] that made me say yes.” Reportedly, Pankaj will be seen in a cameo in the movie, where he will essay the role of a travel agency dealer, who helps Irrfan and his daughter reach UK. It is indeed a terrific news for all Irrfan Khan and Pankaj Tripathi fans, and we are pretty sure that just like us, even they can't wait to watch two of Bollywood's biggest dark horses come together on the big screen.
  18. Christopher Henry Gayle, this man has grown to become the bane of a lot of bowlers' existence through his 20 years of batting for the Windies team and the thought of bowling six deliveries to this batting legend seems to be a harrowing one. But, as a member of a cricket team, you have got to do what your captain says. Thus, came in the 25-year-old Mohammed Siraj to bowl his first over of the game against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) with the 'Universe Boss', himself on strike. To add to Siraj's misery, his first over also happened to be the final one of the batting Power Play for the Kings XI so Gayle had a little extra motivation to lookout for bigger shots during these six deliveries. Opening the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) bowler's over with a four on the first ball, Gayle smoked Siraj for a six and another four on the second and third deliveries, respectively. Letting the gasping pacer breathe for a dot ball, Gayle continued the onslaught hitting another six and a four on the last two deliveries of the spell, bagging a total of 24 runs in the sixth over, all for himself. SIIIIIRRRRRRRRRRRAAAA-J WELCOME! ð 4,6,4, Gayle has decided to unleash and he's taking on Siraj here. ð#SaddaPunjab #KXIPvRCB #KXIP #VIVOIPL — Kings XI Punjab (@lionsdenkxip) April 13, 2019 Siraj went on to bowl three more overs of his quota but resulted in becoming the most expensive bowler for the Virat Kohli side giving away 54 runs in 24 legal deliveries. Throughout the 2019 season of the IPL, Siraj has been one of the costliest bowlers not only for Bangalore but the entire league. Having bowled 22.1 overs this season, Siraj has let off 210 runs while bagging just six scalps with an economy rate of 9.47. After his first showing of the match, RCB fans took to Twitter to speculate as to what keeps the team managers of the squad from dropping him: Mohammed Siraj has @imVkohli 's nudes. Why else would he be selected? #KXIPvRCB — Harshith (@CS_Harshith) April 13, 2019 It's hard to understand why @imVkohli is still having Mohammed Siraj in the @RCBTweets team after so many disappointing performances by him. #IPL2019 #KXIPvsRCB — Vaibhav K (@VaibhavKajarek2) April 13, 2019 Still a better bowler than Mohammed Siraj ð𤣠#VIVOIPL #PerfectFan #HYDERABAD #KXIPvRCB #PLAYBOLD pic.twitter.com/C2hKZg4eNj — Prithvi Cena (@prithvicena21) April 13, 2019 Hey @RCBTweets why is #MohammedSiraj is in playing X1 such a useless player — Sushith (@Sushithsuvarna) April 13, 2019 Mohammed siraj = lol — Prashanth Karanth (@Prashanth511) April 13, 2019
  19. Arguably two of the greatest footballers of all time, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi share a rivalry like no other in international football. The sport has seen many superstars over the ages, but the decade-long reign of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi is arguably something that's going to last in our memories for a really long time. The two footballing greats have made the sport their own playing arena and the fact that they have won a record five Ballon d'Ors, goes on to show how dominant they have been in the last decade. The duel for football's top individual award began in 2008 when Ronaldo pipped Messi to bag his first Ballon d'Or. However, Messi staged a spectacular comeback a year later and went on to bag the coveted award for four successive years. Then, Ronaldo bounced back to clinch the prestigious award in 2013 and 2014 before Messi took his tally to a record five Ballon d'Or wins in 2015. While many ruled the Portuguese out of the race, Ronaldo stunned everyone by bagging the award in 2016 and 2017, once again proving he's second to none. © Reuters While Luka Modric ended their dominance after winning the Ballon d'Or last year, the Ronaldo vs Messi debate continues to capture the imagination of football pundits and fans alike. The latest individual to give his verdict on who's the best amongst the two superstars was none other than Indian football team talisman Sunil Chhetri. Giving his opinion on the subject while picking one as his favourite player and the other as his role model, Chhetri, during a live interaction on Instagram, said: “Who is better? I think both Messi and Ronaldo are amazing but if you ask who is my favourite, it will be Messi for me. But if you need a role model, I would say Cristiano Ronaldo would be a better pick". There was no surprise to see Chhetri admiring Messi's talent, but it was Ronaldo's work ethics that made him select the Portuguese over the Argentine as a better role model. "Messi is more like a god gift. Some of the things he (Messi) does, it is so difficult to learn. He does them so effortlessly. With Cristiano, there's so much of hard work and if you see his graph every year, there's so much to learn," the Indian football team captain said. © Reuters “For example, when he (Ronaldo) was younger, you would see him on the left doing those step-overs but now he takes less touches at the ball, he would pass the ball on the wing and then run into the box. And his running is so good, it's so tough to mark him. His header, his finishing from both left and right – it's just brilliant. He takes less time on ball now but he is as good as ever and so devastating,” Chhetri added further in the video. Apart from Ronaldo and Messi, Chhetri also weighed in on another battle - Mohamed Salah vs Neymar - that continues to throng the social media. "Salah or Neymar? Salah's form has been so good for the past two-three years. But, if I have to pick, I'll pick Neymar, yes," Chhetri claimed. Barring Neymar, who wasn't part of the Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) squad which was eliminated in the Round of 16 tie at the hands of Manchester United, the likes of Messi, Ronaldo and Salah are all active in the ongoing edition of the UEFA Champions League. While Messi and Salah went goalless in the first leg of their respective quarterfinals, Ronaldo's goal saved Juventus the blushes during the 1-1 draw against a spirited Ajax side.
  20. The Captain America-Iron Man reunion was one of the biggest things every Marvel fan was waiting for in 'Avengers: Infinity War' but as we know, it never happened. Then, this particular meeting became the main focus of one of the 'special videos' from 'Avengers: Endgame' and everyone is still very emotional about it. This is all because of the events of 'Captain America: Civil War', of course. They both love each other but a disagreement over the Sokovia accords and obviously a brainwashed Bucky killing Tony's parents years ago tore them apart. In that last fight scene from the movie, the last time they both actually saw each other, Tony basically took away Cap's shield because “he didn't deserve it”. Well, even after so many years and Cap even calling Tony earth's best defender, Tony is not yet ready to give back the shield. The entire cast is doing the press tour for 'Endgame' right now and it's hilarious because it's just all of them having fun together, probably for the last time. RDJ has been very active on Instagram, sharing videos with all his Marvel BFFs and it's so pure. But, since it's RDJ and he has the best bromance with Chris Evans, he of course had to throw some shade. View this post on Instagram #flashback #day1 @avengers #press #tour #2019 Sorry Cap!

But, let's not forget that even Chris threw some shade at RDJ about this shield debate a few weeks ago.

Technically it's YOUR umbrella. But I'm happy to hold it. https://t.co/tFqWFqCSv3 — Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) March 13, 2019 The shade! Yaas Cap! Well, this banter is great and all but I seriously can't wait for this.
  21. For someone who enjoyed a sensational run last season, KL Rahul might have taken his time, but he is surely getting into the groove in the 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The right-handed batsman smashed an unbeaten 53-ball 71 to power Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) to a six-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) stadium on 8th April. Chasing a paltry total of 150 runs, the dashing opener looked in ominous touch while playing beautiful strokes early on. While his opening partner Chris Gayle couldn't score more than 16 runs, Rahul appeared solid in his approach and carried the baton for his side till the very end. Twitter/@IPL The 26-year-old stitched a match-winning partnership of 114 runs for the second wicket alongside Mayank Agarwal who gave adequate support to his partner during his 43-ball 55. Their partnership was eventually broken by Sandeep Sharma following a poor shot selection by Mayank. And, the quick dismissals of David Miller (1) and Mandeep Singh (2) gave a glimmer of hope to the visiting side. But, Rahul made sure there were no hiccups as he got Punjab over the line. Rahul's brilliant batting display meant that David Warner's pivotal knock of 70 runs went in vain as Hyderabad paid dearly for their mediocre batting and lacklustre bowling in Chandigarh. Twitter/@IPL Having begun the tournament with lowly individual scores of 4 and 1, Rahul seems to be getting his mojo back as he slammed three fifties in his next four innings (71*, 15, 55, 71*). The KXIP opener has now amassed 217 runs at a strike-rate of over 120 in six games he has played so far. He has also secured the third spot in the race for the 'Orange Cap' behind Hyderabad's dynamic openers Jonny Bairstow (263) and Warner (349).
  22. Diljit Dosanjh and Lilly Singh are two celebrities who are most popular with millennials all over the world. While Lilly Singh is a social media sensation across the globe, and enjoys huge following even in her motherland India, Diljit Dosanjh needs no introduction as such since his every other song has been doing all the talking for this terrific singer-turned-actor. View this post on Instagram New video coming today and can I just say I went to literal hell and back to make it happen. So stay tuned... unless a lightening bolt strikes my laptop and destroys it which is honestly not that unlikely at this point ð #IfBollywoodSongsWereRap any guess which song this is from?! ðð½ A post shared by Lilly Singh (@iisuperwomanii) on Mar 27, 2019 at 6:46pm PDT A popular YouTuber, Lilly Singh aka Superwoman was recently topping trends charts for her video titled 'If Bollywood Songs Were Rap' where she talks about women's rights and being Indian in a world dominated by men and the white man's burden. While our man Diljit Dosanjh has been in the news for his upcoming Bollywood project 'Good News' which also stars Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor and Kiara Advani. The first look of the film was released a few hours ago. View this post on Instagram Superwoman ... Gud artist .. God bless her @iisuperwomanii #diljitdosanjh A post shared by Diljit Dosanjh (@diljitdosanjh) on Apr 30, 2013 at 1:28pm PDT However, today, Lilly and Diljit are yet again trending all over social media, and for a reason that is so desi, and so completely Punjabi that every Indian, regardless of their geographical location, will be able to relate to it. View this post on Instagram Toronto Di Lilly Te DosanjhanWala ð When Two Punjabis meet ð¤ð¤© @iisuperwomanii @humblethepoet A post shared by Diljit Dosanjh (@diljitdosanjh) on Apr 4, 2019 at 8:43pm PDT The video is their take on what happens when two theth Punjabis meet each other, in any part of this world, in whatever company and under any given circumstance. The video is on-point and totally relatable. © Instagram Lilly's caption for the video pretty much sums it up perfectly well: “When you meet someone from the motherland. This is DEF how Punjabis greet each other, complete with a 5 minute long hand holding session and family tree check in. To be honest, @diljitdosanjh and I aren't even acting... someone was just rolling when we met up.” Lilly was recently in India for the YouTube Fanfest and met up with Diljit who happens to be an old friend. These two go back a long way, and we totally love what they have whipped up.
  23. They say that God often heeds the prayers of young kids. The reason cited is pretty simple and straightforward. Children are innocent and their hearts are pure, uncorrupted by the world's twisted ways of existence. Their earnest wishes, and innocence make them God's most favourite subjects. Not sure about the bit involving God, but everything that has been said about young kids being truthful and full of innocence and goodness is absolutely true. © Pixabay They will share their chocolate with you without a second thought, throw a fit of terror and shed a tear for the deer that lost its life to the leopard on National Geographic and hoot every time the hero wins over the evil monster and save the day! Above all else, kids are honest about their thoughts and selfless with the love and kindness that they have to share. A rather strange incident from Northeast is proof of all this that we just pointed out. © Flickr A little boy accidentally ran over his neighbour's chicken while cycling. Heartbroken and sad, the boy rushed the chicken to the nearest hospital along with all the money he had. A picture showing the boy carrying the chick has since gone viral on social media. The silent plea for help on the kid's face is heartwarming. We hope this boy and many others grow up feeling for every living being around them, and grow up to be young men and women who respect and care for every life on earth. The comments section of the post is filled with praises for the boy's kind gesture. A user wrote, “this kind of humanity, innocent and pure”, while another blessed the young boy in the comments. Many others have praised the little boy's parents for raising a child who knows how to care, while another user suggested that adults take a lesson from the kid. How a thoughtful act has brought so many people together.
  24. Ajay Devgn first graced the silver screen in the early 90s with the release of 'Phool Aur Kaante' in 1991.

  25. At a time when more and more people constantly complain saying they don't feel “motivated” at work more often than not, we also come across those who show us what the phrase “work is worship” stands for. A traffic cop from Assam is being hailed as a prime example of what real dedication looks like on a person. Constable Mithun Das has quickly turned into an internet sensation after he was seen performing his duty, as he manned the traffic in a heavy rainstorm without a raincoat or even an umbrella to save him from the heavy downpour. (c) Twitter Assam Police shared a post of appreciation on their Twitter handle, praising Das for his devotion and selfless service. Dedication is thy name! We salute AB Constable Mithun Das (Basistha PS) of @GuwahatiPol , for his exceptional devotion towards duty and showing us how dedication can turn a storm into a sprinkle. Kudos! Video Courtesy: Banajeet Deka pic.twitter.com/c6vfHaQBlT — Assam Police (@assampolice) March 31, 2019 Clad in his work uniform, constable Das stood at his post, right in the middle of a busy intersection and ensured that the cars moved smoothly while he is there. “My duty hours were from 7 am to 12 pm. The storm started around 5 minutes before noon, but since my replacement hadn't come, I continued my job in the rain for nearly 20 minutes,” Das told the media. Special DGP (Law & Order) Kuladhar Saikia also praised constable Das' efforts and called him an inspiration. The visuals of the traffic Constable Mithun Das (Basistha PS) are truly inspirational. I personally talked to him and conveyed my appreciations. I also hail all the @assampolice Personnel like him, who stand against such adversities everyday, without being recorded. https://t.co/2IsLHfsXQs — Kula Saikia, IPS (@saikia_kula) March 31, 2019 Das' action is really motivating, and we are sure he has inspired thousands of men and women in the country to perform their duties with similar dedication. We are proud of you Constable Das. Really motivating ! One can do their best in any job he/she has by dedication ! ðârespect ! — Samit Kiran Roy (@KiranSamit) April 1, 2019 He deserves a medal â¤ï¸ Proud of Assam Police â¤ï¸ — Nabajyoti Lahkar (@NabajyotiLahkar) March 31, 2019 Kudos to the constable for his outstanding sincerity towards his duty but on the other hand is it not necessary to keep a rain gear for so called smart police of Guwahati city. — Kumar Kashyap Konwar (@KonwarKashyap) April 1, 2019 My respect to Mr Das. Hope Assam Police will motivate others also to be like him... Assam Police rocks! — Dr Mrinmoy K Sarma (@mrinmoysarma) March 31, 2019
