  1. Whenever neighbouring countries India and Pakistan lock horns on the cricket field, the excitement around this massive fixture tends to reach an all-time high. The fans on both sides of the border are seen taunting each other on social media and, every now and then, Indian tennis sensation Sania Mirza finds herself caught in the crosshairs. Cringeworthy ads on both sides of the border 𤮠seriously guys, you don't need to 'hype up' or market the match anymore specially with rubbish! it has ENOUGH attention already!It's only cricket for God sake, and if you think it's anymore than that then get a grip or get a life !! — Sania Mirza (@MirzaSania) June 12, 2019 Ahead of the Indo-Pak encounter at the ongoing ICC World Cup, Mirza had tweeted her frustration over the unnecessary hype around the much-anticipated fixture which also saw a distasteful video coming to the fore. "Cringeworthy ads on both sides of the border 𤮠seriously guys, you don't need to 'hype up' or market the match anymore specially with rubbish! it has ENOUGH attention already! It's only cricket for God sake, and if you think it's anymore than that then get a grip or get a life," she had tweeted. But, despite the extensive build-up, the so-called mother of all battles failed to live up to the billing. In what turned out to be a one-sided affair, Pakistan were overshadowed in almost all facets of the game by a rampant Indian brigade during their 89-run loss (D/L) at Old Trafford in Manchester. Witnessing their national team lose to arch-rivals India, the Pakistani fans wasted no time in expressing their feelings on social media. While some slammed captain Sarfaraz Ahmed for yawning behind the stumps, others questioned the fitness of Pakistani cricketers after a video of them eating junk food went viral. ðThat's the video you shot without asking us,disrespecting our privacy even though we had a child with us?& got told off for doing so,& u came up with this crap?FYI 'outing' was dinner & yes ppl are allowed to eat if they lose a match!Bunch of fools!Try better content nxt timeð https://t.co/51gnkMWUYu — Sania Mirza (@MirzaSania) June 15, 2019 There were also some tweets targeting Mirza, who was seen in the company of her hubby Shoaib Malik alongside his teammates. Tired of the criticism, Mirza hit back at the trolls by tweeting: "That's the video you shot without asking us, disrespecting our privacy even though we had a child with us? & got told off for doing so,& u came up with this crap? FYI 'outing' was dinner & yes ppl are allowed to eat if they lose a match! Bunch of fools! Try better content nxt time". But, amidst all that, Veena Malik joined the chorus and probably took it too far by schooling the Indian tennis star on parenting. Sania, I am actually so worried for the kid. You guys took him to a sheesha place isn't it Hazardious? Also as far as I know Archie's is all about junk food which isn't good for athletes/Boys. You must know well as you are mother and athlete yourself? https://t.co/RRhaDfggus — VEENA MALIK (@iVeenaKhan) June 17, 2019 It all began when the Pakistani actress tweeted out: "Sania, I am actually so worried for the kid. You guys took him to a sheesha place isn't it Hazardious? Also as far as I know Archie's is all about junk food which isn't good for athletes/Boys. You must know well as you are mother and athlete yourself?". Veena,I hav not taken my kid to a sheesha place. Not that it's any of your or the rest of the world's business cause I think I care bout my son a lot more than anyone else does :) secondly I am not Pakistan cricket team's dietician nor am I their mother or principal or teacher- https://t.co/R4lXSm794B — Sania Mirza (@MirzaSania) June 17, 2019 In response, the Indian tennis star minced no words: "Veena,I hav not taken my kid to a sheesha place. Not that it's any of your or the rest of the world's business cause I think I care bout my son a lot more than anyone else does :) secondly I am not Pakistan cricket team's dietician nor am I their mother or principal or teacher". To know when they sleep,wake up and eat .. thank you for your concern though .. means a lot âð½ https://t.co/R4lXSm794B — Sania Mirza (@MirzaSania) June 17, 2019 Mirza also mentioned the Pakistani actress' scandalous magazine cover but deleted the tweet soon after. Reconsidering her words, Mirza excluded the magazine taunt and tweeted again: "To know when they sleep, wake up and eat..thank you for your concern though..means a lot". But, despite deleting her tweet, Mirza, who had blocked the Pakistani actress by then, couldn't stop Veena from revealing the screenshot of her tweet on the microblogging website. Have some guts & don't delete ur tweets.Fortunately the technology has progressed so much that people can't deny their acts.Oh the magazine's cover u mentioned had morphed images.Also I can bringup all the controversies U have ever had bt I would rather not divert the discusion. pic.twitter.com/8qednFvEBz — VEENA MALIK (@iVeenaKhan) June 17, 2019 "Have some guts & don't delete ur tweets.

U should take care of his wellbeing.Isn't it? https://t.co/zZKS3r0xSk — VEENA MALIK (@iVeenaKhan) June 17, 2019 Continuing her barrage on Twitter, Veena wrote: "Great to hear that u didn't took ur kid their. Oh did I mentioned you are a dietician or mother of the Pak team? I said u are an athlete and u must know how much fitness is important for athletes. Also, aren't u a wife of cricketer?

Thank you for opening up to the world and showing your true colors! Much Love Veena Malik ð⨠— VEENA MALIK (@iVeenaKhan) June 17, 2019 After calling her out, Veena thanked Mirza for showing her true colours. "Also your tweet shows that me being worried for my country and cricket team has triggered you so much. Thank you for opening up to the world and showing your true colors! Much Love Veena Malik," she tweeted. Retweeting a reply, Veena then left a piece of advice for the beloved 'bhabhi', bringing it to her attention that personal attacks will not take her anywhere. "Dearest Bhabhi, Attacking someone personally and reaching new heights of being low will not take you anywhere. Love, Veena Malik," she wrote on Twitter.
  2. Bihar is currently undergoing a massive outbreak of Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) that has led to the death of over 100 children in the state in the past two weeks. The situation was critical and there was a dire need for taking rapid action to deal with the epidemic and have as much damage control as possible. In order to figure out a plan of action quickly, Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan carried out a press meet along with Ashwini Kumar Choubey, Minister Of State for Health and Family Welfare and Bihar's Health Minister, Mangal in Muzaffarpur on Sunday. However, instead of showing their concerns towards the loss of life for the young infants of the state, the Health Minister seemed more interested in the ICC World Cup match between India and Pakistan. Check out the shocking video shared by the official Twitter handle on ANI: #WATCH Bihar Health Minister Mangal Pandey asks for latest cricket score during State Health Department meeting over Muzaffarpur Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) deaths. (16.6.19) pic.twitter.com/EVenx5CB6G — ANI (@ANI) June 17, 2019 “Kitna wicket hua tha?” asked the politician wishing to know how many wickets had fallen in the game. This kind of insensitivity shown by the representative towards his people, especially during such a crisis led to the opposition demanding an immediate resignation from Pandey. "Pandey was more interested in knowing the cricket score while Harsh Vardhan was telling mediapersons on they plans to alleviate the situation arising from the encephalitis outbreak," IANS quoted RJD leader Ram Chandra Purve. The unfortunate and heartbreaking incident comes after Minister Of State for Health and Family Welfare Ashwini Kumar Choubey was being extensively criticised for sleeping at another press conference on the mass outbreak to which he had replied by saying that he was indulged in “deep thought” and was not asleep. Twitter is livid with the inconsiderate behaviour of the ministers and their reactions are completely justified: They all should be sacked with immediate effect by Modi. — The Baba (@whateverbaba) June 17, 2019 Score: #IndiaVsPakistan in #Bihar ð #AcuteEncephalitisSyndrome crosses the 100 mark as Pakistan failed to control the outbreak in #Muzaffarpur ðWhose negligence? Why infrastructure lacking?#SaveChildrenInBihar ð¢The future cricketers But #WhoCares, "Choti Si Baat" haið pic.twitter.com/lNxedKQxwT — ð« f@¡z ð« (@zules7172) June 17, 2019 One doc goes blue, IMA on strike...100s of kids die, none protest...Where are the electorates? — ð« f@¡z ð« (@zules7172) June 18, 2019 Score rises to 100+ — Aminul Hb (@notinnames) June 17, 2019 Elections are over, power retained, so the people of India, go to hell, see how we will torture you, people perhaps deserved this after all they votes for people like these blindly — Citizen Shivam (@ShivamJ24) June 17, 2019 Shame shame ... iske bachhe bhi jab ye dekhenge to unhe bhi sharm aayegi , par inko nahi — SAURABH (@aerosaurabh) June 17, 2019 Shame.. we are shameful that such people run our country #shame @NitishKumar @BJPBiharState @BJP4India — Gurjinder Singh (@GurjinderSinghz) June 17, 2019
  3. Team India's win against Pakistan yesterday set the temperature rising across the world, as Indian cricket fans across the globe celebrated the Men in Blue's unbeaten streak against Pakistan, 7-0, in the World Cup. Social media feeds were flooded with congratulatory notes for Team India and one such message was tweeted by recently appointed Home Minister, Amit Shah. Another strike on Pakistan by #TeamIndia and the result is same. Congratulations to the entire team for this superb performance. Every Indian is feeling proud and celebrating this impressive win. #INDvPAK pic.twitter.com/XDGuG3OiyK — Amit Shah (@AmitShah) June 16, 2019 Shah's 'another strike' comment has not gone down well with cricket fans and people are kind of disappointed with his choice of words. Home min @AmitShah likens India win over Pakistan to 'another strike'; yes, it's a great win but it's a cricket match and not war:no one died out there. We won because we played a much better game. There is still a World Cup to be won! Let's do the chest thumping on 14th July! — Rajdeep Sardesai (@sardesairajdeep) June 17, 2019 Amit Shah compares India's win over Pakistan in the world cup to the Balakot strike. We just cannot be comparing a cricket match to an army strike in the first place. Very irresponsible statement coming from the home minister. — Chandni Prashar (@ChandniPrashar) June 17, 2019 People feel that the tweet was in bad taste, especially coming from a senior politician, and that comparing this win to a 'strike' was unnecessary. Cricket is just a game. The rest is all hype. I certainly didn't like the statement put out by @AmitShah and the @AmitShahOffice either, on yesterday's game. He must know that he's the HM of a country and not a state - period — #TheRebel #I still remain vigilant (@ravishankar5248) June 17, 2019 I thought it was a cricket match. Seriously "strike" @AmitShah . pic.twitter.com/eAq0s9Ze7m — Om Prakash (@Om81624017) June 17, 2019 @AmitShah don't compare cricket with your politics. Keep it aside. They won because they played a good game. It was not a war. https://t.co/XswG4GzBTW — Tonakshi Kalra (@Tonakshi_0494) June 17, 2019 Cricket and the battlefield are two separate things and while it's admirable to have a strong sentiment towards one's nation, sometimes we forget that as humans, our words can often leave a deeper wound than anything else.
  4. Netflix India's latest offering 'Leila' starring Huma Qureshi hit our screens yesterday, and since the show was already pretty hyped-up with the trailer and plot looking very interesting, it was only natural that in less than 24 hours, a myriad of opinions would pop up once the show hit the air. The show is set up in a dystopian future, where a helpless mother is desperately looking for her lost daughter. The show has opened to rave reviews from a lot of peoplem, who are calling it a spine-chilling reality check. #Leila is a scary reality which might knock our doors in the near future. The need to create a better world for our future generations is more than ever. We shouldn't take clean water and air for granted anymore or else we won't have any left. @humasqureshi you were incredible. — Abheshek Garg (@LovelybonE_04) June 15, 2019 The freakiest part of #Leila for me is that the horrors shown are all happening already somewhere in the world...The policing of women's bodies, scarcity of water (those scenes ð±), food rations, fall of law and order, violence in the name of hyper-nationalism.. https://t.co/YGHHEk6WZL — Aliya Curmally (@filminista) June 15, 2019 The Dystopia depicted in the latest @NetflixIndia series #Leila is very Disturbing, Depressing & Disgusting. And in that disgust lies its strength. It is a warning sign for present generations to be careful with natural & ideological 'resources' or else witness mayhem in future. — Abhinav Saxena (@abhinavsaxena25) June 14, 2019 People are in awe of Huma Qureshi and everyone who put their hard work into making this show a success. Leila is the best work of Huma Qureshi.. I am spellbound with her impeccable performance.. Loved the series and hope the period shown in the series never comes.. @humasqureshi @NetflixIndia #leila netflix — Sneha (@beingsnehaa) June 14, 2019 One episode. ONE EPISODE is enough to shake you. Totally. I just hope it goes well ahead too. Wow @humasqureshi #Leila — υ∂αÒ¯ (@imuday02) June 14, 2019 However, there are many viewers who felt that the show was a little weak, in terms of depicting what it wanted to convey and also many felt the borrowed emotion from 'The Handmaid's Tale' to be quite evident . Just because something is controversial and bold, doesn't mean it's actually good#Leila is a copy of the show @HandmaidsOnHulu I have seen them both and I'd recommend skipping #Leila I also didn't like how political and communal they made it when they could've avoided it — ðððð ÙÙØ­ÙÙد ‎ ð­ððððð (@tysaa13) June 14, 2019 Watched ep 1 of #Leila on Netflix. It was quite pedestrian. Very thin direction and substance, poor special effects. All it seemed good for was to massage many people's sense of outrage against the hierarchical & purity-obsessed Indian/Hindu society. — Dhara (@dhar_aa) June 14, 2019 Waste of time..!!! So much hype they created. Seriously all she has is only one emotion throughout the series and nothing else. Or maybe her face is only capable of producing that one and only emotion. #Leila — à²à²¿à²°à²à²à³à²µà²¿ à²à³à²¡ (@Ljs6JuKBeB4wgTI) June 14, 2019 Also, some people feel that the show comes across a politically charged propaganda and is defaming certain religions and strata of the society. I have one question for @netflix When you create a dystopian world for the west, you show all kind of tech and cool guys shitting science and girls riding ð¦ But while creating a dystopian India, you show an entire community in bad light. WTF is #Leila No ð PATHETIC — BRAHMA (@BrahmaUbaach) June 14, 2019 Sheer propaganda nthng else, frm costumes to stereotypes #leila is just another way to show their bigotry. @NetflixIndia hv grt content but y they r stooping to this propaganda, can't undrstnd. If u wnt to see totalitarian nation see documentries on NKorea n saudi on netflix only — Mayank Dua (@MayankDua88) June 14, 2019 Just watched #Leila how disgusting u Morron guys see only one religion bed shame on u @humasqureshi @NetflixIndia — chowkidar sachin soni (@beingsachin_) June 14, 2019 It looks like 'Leila' is one of those shows which cannot be ignored and we feel that we should actually watch it to form an opinion about it. Sounds like an interesting weekend plan, what say?
  5. Within five days, a strike that started in West Bengal, has now spread to other cities with doctors from all over the country showing solidarity to the cause of protection of medical practitioners. It all started on Monday at the Nil Ratan Sircar Medical College and Hospital where a 74-year-old patient Mohammad Syeed passed away. The relatives of the deceased allegedly beat up the doctors blaming medical negligence for the death. The clash led to an intern getting a severe head injury. Kolkata:Junior doctors at NRS Medical College&Hospital go on strike after doctors were allegedly attacked by a patient's family who died yesterday.Chandrima Bhattacharya,Health Min,says,"Emergency is open&talks are on.4 ppl have been arrested in connection with attack on doctors" pic.twitter.com/EU3HNJvfnV — ANI (@ANI) June 11, 2019 Following that, doctors at NRS refused to release Syeed's body, demanding an apology for the incident. This was followed by some relatives and local residents storming the hospital and pelting stones at junior doctors. Reportedly, five relatives of the deceased have been arrested after an FIR. The incident led to a lot of outrage with people demanding safe working spaces for doctors. Apparently, the doctors are also wearing bandages and helmets as a way to protest. Following the incident at NRS, a lot of junior doctors from different hospitals in West Bengal also joined the protest. West Bengal: Doctors at North Bengal Medical College, Siliguri observe strike over violence against doctors at NRS Medical College & Hospital pic.twitter.com/qZvMkUEX0X — ANI (@ANI) June 14, 2019 With Delhi Medical Association (DMA) declaring a Black Day yesterday, the protest also spread to Delhi with AIIMS Delhi joining in. The Indian Medical Association also urged doctors to wear a black badge as a way to protest. Delhi: Doctors at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) prepare to observe strike over violence against doctors in West Bengal. pic.twitter.com/pza71njjum — ANI (@ANI) June 14, 2019 Yesterday afternoon, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee issued a four-hour ultimatum to end the doctors' strike while visiting the state-run SSKM hospital in Kolkata. She was quoted as saying, “[Doctors who are protesting] are outsiders. The government will not support them in any way. I condemn doctors who have gone on strike. Policemen die in line of duty but the police don't go on a strike.” She also said, “Medical services come under the Essential Services Act and the doctors cannot afford to do such protests. I don't understand medicine, but today I saw an accident victim lying without being attended to. He will die lying there because of the protest. Let good sense prevail or else we will be forced to take action.” While her stand till now is still understandable, she did bring in BJP and called it a conspiracy. She said, “This strike is a BJP conspiracy. Protesters are disrupting medical services. This should end at once. All anti-social people of one particular community are doing this under police protection.” Really not the time for this, tbh. While the strike is still continuing and doesn't seem to come to an end soon, there are two different narratives emerging. There are stories about how a lot of patients are suffering because the doctors aren't there to treat them. Delhi: Patients face difficulties as Resident Doctors Association (RDA) of AIIMS is on strike today over violence against doctors in West Bengal. Relative of a patient says, "My mother's dialysis was scheduled for today, we were told to go & get it done from somewhere else," pic.twitter.com/sFVF6D8VMj — ANI (@ANI) June 14, 2019 But, at the same time, there are a lot of posts about doctors wearing helmets and bandages as a symbol of protest while also treating patients. Delhi: Members of Resident Doctors' Association of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) work wearing helmets & bandages, as a mark of protest against "worsening of violence against medical doctors in West Bengal." pic.twitter.com/Fgrv6Jtjdq — ANI (@ANI) June 13, 2019 People on Twitter are mostly standing with the doctors and respect their fight for safety while working. A lot of people have also brought up the fact that a lot of other patients are suffering and that's not fair. This is what happened when 200 people came by trucks and attacked Doctors and interns at NRS Hospital. They thrashed an intern's skull bcz a 85 yrs old man died. It doesnt feel safe living in WB nowadays. It's a goon's era we are living in. The protest must go on. #standwithnrs pic.twitter.com/9WkqH2XHOI — Nabanita Das (@nabanita_speaks) June 11, 2019 Dear Doctors, I completely empathise with the fact that whatever happened in #NRS is deplorable & a strong protest is very valid but it's also true that making other patients, including small babies, suffer due for no to fault of theirs is also not something u can really justify — Babul Supriyo (@SuPriyoBabul) June 13, 2019 People are also calling out Mamata Banerjee. Attack on doctors happened in NRS college bt CM Mamata Banerjee went to SSKM college. Instead of condemning attack, she is condeming strike and clng students outsider & politicaly motivated. She is okay with doctors getting killed in line of duty. Again vote bank. #BengalBurning — Pradeep Bhandari (@pradip103) June 13, 2019 Summed up. A patient Mohammed Sayeed died in NRS Hospital in Bengal. Soon after that: 1. Hospital was attacked by a violent Mob of 200 People. 2. Rioters came in two lorries to attack the doctors. 3. Mob also pelted bricks. Many injured. One Doctor is struggling for life. Pray for him. — Anshul Saxena (@AskAnshul) June 12, 2019 As per the latest reports, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) has announced a nationwide doctors' strike on June 17. The IMA said 3.5 lakh doctors will participate in the nationwide strike on Monday. Watch this space for more update.
  6. Winning two matches in as many outings, the Indian cricket team is undoubtedly in scintillating form in the ongoing ICC World Cup. Giving South Africa a run for their money and then, getting the better of Australia, the 'Men in Blue' are surely living up the reputation as one of the top contenders for the coveted title this year. But, after a fairly successful start in the tournament, the Indian team was dealt with a major blow after it was announced that Shikhar Dhawan was ruled out for about two to three weeks owing to a hairline fracture on his left thumb. After some nervy starts, the Indian opener rediscovered his form on the back of a match-winning knock of 117 runs against Australia. And, his injury surely comes as a setback for both himself and his team. © Reuters In a bid to fill the void left by his injury, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to fly in swashbuckling Rishabh Pant to England but it's still not clear if the youngster will actually get a chance to break into India's playing XI anytime soon. On the other hand, the BCCI is keeping close tabs on Dhawan, who has been given a week to prove his fitness. It all seems like a bad dream for the Delhi batsman who is one of the most successful batsmen for India (with six hundreds) in ICC tournaments, only behind Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly. He may be down, but surely not out (just yet) - something Dhawan highlighted in his recent post on social media. Kabhimehekkitarah hum gulon se udtehain... Kabhidhuyeinkitarah hum parbaton se udtehain... Ye kainchiyaanhumeinudne se khaakrokengi... Ke hum paron se nahinhoslon se udtehain...#DrRahatIndori Ji pic.twitter.com/h5wzU2Yl4H — ShikharDhawan (@SDhawan25) June 12, 2019 In an inspirational tweet, the 33-year-old shared a verse from Dr RahatIndori's poem, signalling his intentions. "Kabhi mehek ki tarah hum gulon se udte hain...Kabhi dhuyein ki tarah hum parbaton se udtehain...Ye kainchiyaan humein udne se khaak rokengi...Ke hum paron se nahin hoslon se udte hain...#DrRahatIndori Ji," Dhawan tweeted. While fans hope Dhawan recovers in time to lead the charge for his team, Virat Kohli-led India will be eager to continue their fine run when they lock horns with New Zealand at Trent Bridge on 13th June.
  7. Earlier this month, a heinous crime jolted the entire nation when a three-year-toddler was brutally murdered in Aligarh over a matter of a loan. Soon, a cry rose from across the country demanding justice for the little girl, and Bollywood joined the chorus. From Sonam K Ahuja to Rajkummar Rao, celebs took to Twitter to express their anger. However, some of the Twitter users pointed out the absence of Swara Bhasker, whose tweet was visibly missing the whole time. Swara, at the time the news was setting social media on fire, was on a break in Russia and her tweet on the matter came a little later, but it only ended up becoming fodder for trolls. "Just back From #Russia after a break. Including social media break! Aligarh news truly horrifying- the brutal murder of 2yr old #TwinkleSharma, devastating! Killers must be punished, a precedent set so that such a crime NEVER repeated. My solidarity, sympathy & support to the family,” read her tweet. Soon enough, trolls descended on her for not tweeting about it on time, as she has always been pretty vocal about such issues. Some users even attacked her for not using a placard this time, as she had done for the Kathua rape victim. One of the users tweeted, “Having trouble in specifying the religion of rapist like in Kathua case where u were very proud mentioning words "devi-sthaan" "Hindu" "ashamed". Aren't you ashamed now, where is your placard Mention rape happened during" Ramzan.” Check out some of the reactions: How social media break?? You kept on uploading pictures changed your dpð¤ Btw where is the Placard?? Written- I am Hindustan , I am ashamed?? Does the placard comes out when the victime is a Muslim and rapists is a Hindu?? — Riya ð¥ (@Red__Wine1) June 10, 2019 What a liar. I saw you post so many pics from your vacay. Here u r lying to us that u were on a break. Lol. Anyway..go get those.placards woman, u got some work to do now. Let me know if there is a candle light March? I would be happy to join u along with my.frnds @RamKumar6569 — Karthik Jannu (@KarthikJannu) June 11, 2019 Yeh wala bhi karlo ab bahan ji ð¬, natak mat karo pic.twitter.com/TIVv9rkNyr — Nils Patel ð®ð³ (@NilsPatel_) June 10, 2019 Having trouble in specifying the religion of rapist like in Kathua case where u were very proud mentioning words "devi-sthaan" "hindu" "ashamed" Aren't you ashamed now where is your playcard Mention rape happend during" ramzan"#Hypocrite — Abhishek (@iAbHiSh3Ki) June 11, 2019 Here it is killers..no mention of name, religion, no shame on their religion, no placard..only suara will wait for Hindu story..fake or fact n then will start abusing Hindus, Hinduism..so let muslim do whatever in this country as #bollywood is permitting..they stand for criminals — Anu Tyagi (@AnuParashar) June 11, 2019 Placard is missing @ReallySwara. I think no movie of yours is coming. — James Bond (@007BondOffice) June 11, 2019 Yes. Swara did use a placard when she was demanding justice for the Kathua Rape victim, but one must keep in mind that at the time, she was also promoting 'Veere Di Wedding', a movie about feminism and women openly voicing the issues they had with society. Not just Swara, a majority of the main cast also posted messages with placards. While it is another matter altogether if Swara should have used a placard while addressing the Aligarh murder case or not, one thing is for certain: no one has to right to tell her in what manner she should or should not express her views, especially a bunch of nameless and faceless trolls. First of all, it is completely her choice if she wants to speak out over a matter or not. She is a celebrity, not a politician, and it is not her sole responsibility to bring about change. Instead of coming down on her, maybe the trolls should direct their time and energy towards questioning the concerned authorities over the safety of women and children in the country.

  8. While the Indian cricket team are currently in England, putting in their blood and sweat in the attempts of winning the third World Cup trophy in their cricketing history, it seems as if their passion for the game is not enough for the young kids of Gopalganj, Bihar. A couple of days ago, two minor kids in Dhodhwaliyan village of Kuchaikot police station area of Gopalganj, got into a bit of a scuffle during a gully cricket match. However, unlike a typical sporting spat, one of the kids shot his friend in the chest and his neck, leaving him in an extremely critical condition. The kid with the gun then ran away and successfully escaped while firing the pistol, while the injured minor was rushed to the Sadar Hospital nearby, wherein he is fighting the battle of life and death. The Police were, however, successful in getting a statement out of the victim and are actively looking for the shooter. According to a Jagran report, the victim, Pradyuman Singh, was walking down the streets of his village late in the evening when the accused, Priyanshu Pandey's father beat him up for the spat that took place earlier in the field. Meanwhile, Priyanshu arrived with a pistol in his hand and shot his friend once in the chest and once in the neck, as revenge. That's how crazy people are about the game of cricket in India. The passion and zeal to win even a small irrelevant game can make the competitors do absolutely abysmal and horrible things to each other. Make no mistake, we are, in no way, promoting such violent behaviour. We hope the young lad has a speedy recovery and gets back on the field quickly while the wrongdoers are caught and appropriate action is taken.
  9. PUBG Mobile hype is causing some serious trouble in countries like India where a lot of people are currently dealing with gaming addiction. While some people have been arrested, others have even lost their lives or ended up with broken marriages. But PUBG Mobile developer Tencent Games, on the other hand, is enjoying by cashing in on all the hype. According to a new report from intelligence firm, Sensor Tower, Tencent has crossed $4.8 million a day in May. Yes, the company literally made $4.8 million a day i.e. over Rs. 33 Crores a day from PUBG Mobile and it's clone called Game For Peace that it launched in China. © PUBG Mobile With that, Tencent is now said to own the world's highest grossing mobile app and the highest grossing mobile game, which is just insane. Do make a note that these are just estimates, but even the exact value is expected to be somewhere in the same ballpark. The total amount is said to be 126-percent higher quarter on quarter in comparison to the $65 million that PUBG Mobile grossed in April 2019. It's also worth pointing out that the estimate excludes Android revenue from China. Of the total revenue earned by Tencent from PUBG Mobile and the new Game for Peace, over $101 million came from Apple's App Store and $45.3 million from Google's Play Store. The revenue from both games, when put together, is about 17-percent more than $125 million made by Honor of Kings, which is yet another smash hit title published by Tencent. © PUBG Mobile Sensor Tower's Head of Mobile Insights, Randy Nelson, who shared all this information, said, “App Store and Google Play users worldwide spent an average of $4.8 million per day last month between both PUBG Mobile versions. The chief rival to both of Tencent's titles, Fortnite from Epic Games, had its best month so far in 2019 on iOS, but its total player spending of $43.3 million was only about 43 percent of Game for Peace and PUBG Mobile's combined take for May.”
  10. The gruesome details of the gang-rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl last year in Kathua, Jammu and Kashmir, still haunts us and sends shivers down our spine. However, the heartless perpetrators still continue committing heinous crimes against children, the intensity of which boils our blood. In a gut-wrenching incident from Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, a three-year-old girl was allegedly strangled to death and her eyes were gouged out. Thinkstock Photos Reports state that this happened over a loan of Rs. 10,000, which her parents allegedly failed to pay. The girl had gone missing on May 31, and her body was recovered from a dumping ground near her house on June 2. According to reports, the girl's mutilated body was found after a pack of dogs was spotted carrying what appeared to be human body parts. Aligarh: Body of 2.5-year-old girl was found in Tappal area on May2. SSP Aligarh says,'Case of kidnapping was registered with police on May 31. Post-mortem report has revealed death by strangulation, no signs of rape, a case of personal enmity; 2 men arrested. Probe on' (05/06) pic.twitter.com/DP0HaUzHsI — ANI UP (@ANINewsUP) June 6, 2019 The cops have arrested two accused, who also happen to be the girl's neighbours. Even since this inhumane act came into the limelight, the entire nation has come forward in expressing their outrage on social media, and offer their support and condolences to the child's grieving family. Pexels From Abhishek Bachchan to Sunny Leone, Bollywood celebrities have also come forward to condemn the brutal incident and express their anger towards the society, where even kids aren't safe to live in. Twitter Twitter Twitter Twitter Twitter Twitter Twitter Although certain reports and tweets state that the child was raped, according to initial investigations and the post-mortem reports, no signs of rape have been found on the child's body so far. We'll update you once we get more details on the progress of the investigation in this matter.
  11. Whether you wish to get to know this girl in your class or want to be friends with the lively girl in your office who makes those eight hours look less dreary all of a sudden, the first step is to be able to get her to notice you. However, it's a lot easier said than done, and for obvious reasons too. More often than not, guys have a hard time going up to women and introducing themselves good-naturedly without seeming like a creep. © Dharma Productions However, things need not always be that way for men. A lot of times, men genuinely wish to get to know a woman and are honestly interested in giving it a shot and see where things will go. But a number of inhibitions and 'concerns' burden their minds, and deter them from following through with their original plans. But fret not, we have some really quick, not-at-all-awkward and “safe” ways of catching that woman's attention you are pining after. Check out these 6 easy ways of getting noticed by a girl without losing your mind over it: 1. Share A Smile (Or Five) That's the very first one that you should try. And honestly, that's also the safest way. A smile can never rub someone the wrong way, unless you are passing her a sleazy smile. But apart from that, sharing a confident smile every time you come face to face with them is just about the right way of starting things. © Red Chillis Entertainment 2. Attend To Her Before you think of anything else, no we're not talking about carrying her shopping bags for her or something (though that's always a nice touch), but what we really mean is that pay attention to what she says and does, when you share her company. Women notice when someone is being attentive towards them, and that always ends well. 3. Reciprocate Whenever necessary, make the effort of reciprocating her gestures and behaviour towards you. Reciprocating or mirroring the other person always catches their attention, try it. © RSVP Films 4. Dig Deeper To Find Shared Interests This might take a little bit of effort from your side, but try to find out what interests the woman you are crushing on. Suppose it's travelling that interests them, you can share (not brag) about your personal travel experiences when you guys share each other's company. That'll surely get her to notice you. © Maddock Films 5. A Hello Goes A Long Way A simple hello often takes too much work, but it's one of the easiest ways of taking things up a notch and gauging things for yourself. Try a “hey, how are you” the next time you see them and see how that goes. 6. Get Your Friends Involved Another fool-proof way of treading this path is to get your common friends involved so they can introduce you guys during a social setting, and there's no way things could get awkward after that.
  12. We all agree that higher education is a tough ordeal. While you are pursuing an idealistic life and learning as you grow, it really takes a toll on you to spend a lot of time under the pressure of books, examinations, dissertations or daily assignments. That's why it's always healthy to balance student life out, with adequate amount of activity and of course fun. But unfortunately for Kuldeep Mann, it was a different story altogether. An Indian student at the James Cook University in Queesnland, Australia has launched a 3-million dollar lawsuit against the university for rejecting his application for a PhD on the grounds of plagiarism. That's not all. The real reason for him to go ahead with this lawsuit is because he claims the University gave him enough stress for him to loose everything, including his *** drive. © James Cook University Mann, a 52-year-old student working at 7/11, claimed that he had paid $20,000 in 2015, to apply for the social sciences PhD course at the Townville campus. But when he started the course with two subjects, the university rejected his admission on the grounds of plagiarism and told him he wasn't 'up to the mark'. "If the university didn't have this kind of trick on me, had they not destroyed my... ruined my career I should have by now completed my PhD" Mann told an International news publication. His biggest regret though was losing interest in ***, due to the extreme pressure the university put him through. A former PhD student is suing Queensland's James Cook University for $3.125 million, over his 'loss of *** drive', after failing two subjects. #9News pic.twitter.com/uYE9uao2GS — Nine News Queensland (@9NewsQueensland) 28 May 2019 © Twitter "Everything was affected including my *** life, "I... I'm no longer... wanting to be on the bed... to share bed with my partner. There is no such desire... no desire for anything. It has stopped my *** life. I have no *** drive. There is no stimulation in my organs. I have never had this problem before. I don't feel any blood down there," he added. He's now taking his fight to the Queensland Supreme Court and the man has actually submitted a 20-page document , which claim damages for his potential lost income "mental torture" along with "prolonged harassment at the JCU that hovered over (his) mind day and night had also adversely affected (his) *** drive and that as a result (his) relationship with (his) partner is on the verge of collapsing.". He is now asking for 3.125 million dollars, after suing the university. The university obviously gave him 'Grade Fail' for his poor performance and that upset Kuldeep Mann to such an extent that he sued the university for its lack of judgement on his performance, in his PhD and of course in bed. "I hope that the honourable Supreme Court will do full justice with me by awarding me the aforementioned full amount of compensation as remedy for all my losses and sufferings," Mann stated. © Pinterest Well, we don't really know the entire truth but if he's really serious about suing the university for losing his *** drive then I am guessing the university didn't recognise his full potential. If Kuldeep Mann ever decides to study again, we really hope he's in a better place to complete his studies and gain his *** drive back.
  13. Well, even with thousands of streaming websites these days, some of them manage to stand apart with just one show that the entire world is watching. I feel like so many people took Hotstar memberships especially for 'Game of Thrones' and well, that will cause some jealousy among other websites. But, this time, that jealousy just turned into a fun banter, giving us a rare and hilarious exchange between Hotstar and Netflix India. It all started with Netflix India's tweet about the checklist of a true relationship. We hang out every weekend. We eat all our meals together. Your parents know about us. Hate to break it to you, but we may be in a serious relationship. — Netflix India (@NetflixIndia) May 23, 2019 Almost everyone is in a relationship with Netflix then, oops. Probably the longest and most stable relationship as well. While we're on the topic, someone decided to confess their infidelity. We need to talk. I have been cheating on you with @HotstarPremium ð — à¤®à¤°à¤¾à¤ à¥ à¤®à¤¾à¤£à¥à¤¸ (@marathimanu) May 23, 2019 Oh no, things are heating up. Hotstar came in to rub it in even more. Sorry, not sorry. :) — Hotstar Premium (@HotstarPremium) May 23, 2019 Then comes Netflix with a rebuttal, sounding very subtly sexual. We don't mind you experimenting with a hot star but they'd never make you stream like we do. — Netflix India (@NetflixIndia) May 23, 2019 Well, did Hotstar win this round? I can't tell. Insecure. . . Now streaming: https://t.co/Enbi7ENxst — Hotstar Premium (@HotstarPremium) May 23, 2019 There's more stuff happening. That's just for starters. pic.twitter.com/dSPXOMXXuR — Hotstar Premium (@HotstarPremium) May 23, 2019 Brands interacting with each other online is always funny and well, this exchange was just hilarious. Looks like people handling the Twitter accounts deserve a raise ASAP.
  14. So the elections are over and the results are out, great. We now move on to the next big event marked in our calendars, maybe even bigger than the voting day for some of us - the ICC World Cup 2019 that begins 30th May 2019 - with all the qualified teams now present in England, trying to get in the groove with the warm-up games scheduled to begin today. Sarfaraz Khan's Pakistan Team had arrived in England exactly a month ago for their bilateral ODI series against the hosts, during which they got absolutely obliterated by Eoin Morgan's side, losing all four matches the two teams played. On the other hand, Virat Kohli's Men in Blue left for the venue from the Mumbai airport on 22nd May, after a strenuous two month long season of the Indian Premier League, which ended with the Indian vice captain, Rohit Sharma lifting the championship trophy for the Mumbai Indians for a record fourth time. Jet set to go ââ#CWC19 #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/k4V9UC0Zao — BCCI (@BCCI) May 21, 2019 And yes, a lot of players on the Indian roster and the members of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) are concerned about the fatigue Indian athletes are feeling because of the IPL and the lack of time to recuperate, our major concern is about the matchup between India and Pakistan which falls on 16th June 2019, according to the World Cup fixtures. After the unfortunate Pulwama attack that took place on this year's Valentine's Day, during which numerous CRPF Jawans were killed in a terror attack planned and executed by the terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba, BCCI urged the International Cricket Council to “sever ties with the nation from which terrorism emanates.” © Reuters ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar, however, refused to do so whilst saying that he did not enjoy such authority over the Pakistan because of their 'Permanent' status in the Council. But ever since, both the Board and the fans of Indian cricket seemed to have forgotten about the whole chapter. Was it because of the elections? Was it because of the IPL? We do not know. © Reuters Remember, the final decision of forfeiting the match against Pakistan lies completely at the hands of the Indian cricket board. Letting go of a single match, during the initial rounds to make their protest heard is all well and good but what if the two teams meet again during the latter half of the tournament or maybe even the World Cup final? Is the BCCI willing to roll over the dream of skipper Virat Kohli of winning his first World Cup as the leader and the dream of MS Dhoni of lifting the trophy one more time before retiring, just to prove that one point? Alternatively, will Team India just forget about Pulwama and all the hue and cry the board created about boycotting the neighbouring rivals and play the match like any other?
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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!
  18. 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..

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.
  20. 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.

  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. '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.
  24. 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.

  25. 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. Blood requested at the Colombo National Hospital and Batticaloa Hospital where several injured are being treated following the multiple blasts which shook #lka today. — Jamila (@Jamz5251) 21 April 2019 A resident by the name of Usman Ali told an international publication that everyone's intention is to help the victims right now.
