Things are going to change

Things are going to change

This year you must stay, you deserve it.

When you think things go wrong

When you think things go wrong

There is always someone who will give you a hand.

Where are you going tonight?

Where are you going tonight?

Some day we'll go back there, our secret place.

Do you remember those moments?

Do you remember those moments?

This is going to get sweet!

I really feel younger.

I really feel younger.

Maybe I'll give it a little taste.

Oh pretty mama, you're the best!

Oh pretty mama, you're the best!

I do not think I'll ever forget it, thanks.

  1. Johnny Depp has played so many legendary roles that it's hard to pick a favourite, but I feel the first character that pops into your mind when you think of him, is none other than that of Captain Jack Sparrow. And now, turns out that this iconic character has a desi connection. No, I'm not talking about Aamir Khan's look from the upcoming movie 'Thugs Of Hindostan' which seems 'inspired' by the famous swashbuckling pirate. I'm talking about the new revelation by Ted Elliott, one of the screenwriters for Jack Sparrow's character. He recently revealed how the character is inspired from Lord Krishna. Isn't that just so unexpected? He said, “Jack Sparrow's character in 'Pirates of the Caribbean' is one of the most integral parts of the film. The characterization of Sparrow is based on Lord Krishna who is a major deity in Hinduism. While writing the character sketch of Jack Sparrow, we referred to the description of Lord Krishna, various shades of the Almighty, which helped us a lot in making the whole character of Jack Sparrow into existence.” At first, it seems fake, but when you really think about it, you can see the connection. But, we're still dealing with the initial reaction of the people – to be shook. Captain Jack Sparrow, is an inspiration from Krishna do you knew this @BabuBegOfficial? #JackSparrowIsKrishna pic.twitter.com/fID72DHa3P — Rajkumar (@raj50_boy) September 25, 2018 OMG WOW!!!! TIL that legendary Jack Sparrow character was inspired from Lord Krishna. #JackSparrowIsKrishna pic.twitter.com/fw1354lvpp — *Uncle Ji * (@Hitler_uncle) September 25, 2018 I love all the different gifs people are using, tbh. That moment when you someone tells you Jack Sparrow is actually inspired from Lord Krishna#JackSparrowIsKrishna pic.twitter.com/BdLPfHWaGs — *Uncle Ji * (@Hitler_uncle) September 25, 2018 That expression, exactly. Omg! Just got to know that Captain Jack Sparrow was inspired by Lord Krishna OMG!#JackSparrowIsKrishna pic.twitter.com/6IbM3NCq89 — s a T y a (@POETICandFUNNY) September 25, 2018 Pleasant surprise indeed. This is a pleasent surprise to know that Jack Sparrow is actually inspired from Lord Krishna #JackSparrowIsKrishna — Mahesh (@Iam_Mahesh_) September 25, 2018 The gifs are back! Jack Sparrow is actually inspired from Lord Krishna!!! #JackSparrowIsKrishna pic.twitter.com/9tZt7jxm95 — Minal Ruhela (@minalrh) September 25, 2018 Quite unbelievable. It is unbelievable that Jack Sparrow is being taken by the inspiration of Lord Krishna #JackSparrowIsKrishna pic.twitter.com/8nFgeVFjaf — Deepa (@deepsdhanu) September 25, 2018
  2. To start with, almost every western website calls Roti as the Indian Flat Bread. Nope, it's not an Indian Flat Bread. It's a Roti or a Chapati, and that's how it is addressed and should be addressed. We don't call bread as the American roti or the Canadian Chapati, or Australian Naan. Let's stop distorting the terms, as these simple distortions create confusions in a lot of senses. A Westerner who has never had a roti, just because he thinks it's a kind of bread made in India, he starts thinking that a roti is made the same way a bread is made, using the same ingredients, which it isn't, except for a few of the ingredients. A Little History Of Our Roti © Pixabay Acc. to the CSIR (Council for Scientific and Industrial Research) research, people have been making flat breads for over 6,000 years, and today about 80 to 85% of the total wheat produced in the country is used for the preparation of chapatti. Paranthas Aren't Unhealthy! © YouTube This is one of the biggest myths in conjunction with the topic at discussion. Often people tell me that they have brown bread sandwich or cornflakes for breakfast and I ask them why not paranthas? The answer is common. It is fattening. And this is the same case with most Indian foods today. - What is a parantha made of? Whole wheat or different grains mixed together like jowar, bajra, soy, chana and ragi. There is no maida or sugar added, until and unless there is a specific reason to do so. - What do you add in a parantha? Generally, vegetables or spices. - What do you apply on a parantha? Little ghee or butter, not a toxic refined cooking oil. Can you tell me what is unhealthy in the above list of ingredients? The answer often is ghee and butter. If you didn't know, ghee is one of the healthiest fats you can consume. What is bread made of? - Maida or refined carbohydrates as the base, with added sugar (that's why it tastes sweet) - toxic low grade refined oil (that's why when you press a bread, you have oil on your fingers) - salt (to preserve it and make it taste better, when you combine it with sugar and refined oils) - caramel color to make it brown - and yeast to make it fluffy - and may be some wheat and other grains if it is labelled whole wheat. What Actually Is Wheat Bread? Firstly, there is nothing called Brown Bread. It's simply white bread coloured brown. The colour is industrial caramel colour added to it, about which we will discuss later in the text. Now, there are other forms of breads like whole wheat, multi grain, ragi, bran, etc. But at the end of the day, they have a larger percentage as refined carbs or maida along with the other ingredients. Roti Vs Bread: How Fresh? If you prepare a roti/parantha at home, how long can you keep it outside before consuming? May be half a day, or a bit more! Why? Because, there is no ingredients added to it to preserve it. On the other hand, breads are kept for over weeks on the shelves of your supermarket. Why? Because they need to be preserved to be kept in open. A Stupid Comparison A lot of articles and dieticians compare roti and breads on the basis of calories. This is just for the sake of comparison, because there are many stronger views against bread and for roti, than mere calories. This is a stupid comparison. A slice of bread has approx 60cal, and a roti has around 70-80cal, depending on the size and thickness of the roti and bread. This does not make it a point of comparison. Breads Aren't Better Than Rotis © YouTube Another big and most misunderstood point is that whole wheat breads are better. Which country are you living in? Firstly, high quality breads are made at very few places in the world, which use the traditional methods of baking which they have been using since centuries, using locally produced ingredients, without the use of preservatives and other toxic refined oils. Such breads are consumed fresh on the same day, as you cannot preserve them for long, just like rotis. Breads are not bad, but the really good quality breads are rare, and very rare in India. One Of The Longest Living Human Group Eats Roti Some of the best and the most extensive research is on the longest living people in the world, people who live over a hundred (centenarians) and are still in the best of their health. One of the such population is the Hunza, which resides in the mountainous region of North Pakistan. Roti is one of the most consumed foods by the Hunza, and they have it in almost all their meals. Akshay Chopra, is a graduate of the National Defence Academy & the Air Force Academy, and a former IAF pilot. He is one of the most qualified health, fitness & nutrition consultants in the country, and an author of multiple books & ebooks. He is among the few in the country to have a background of competitive athletics, military training and bodybuilding. He is the co-founder of the Body Mechanics chain of gyms, and India's first research based channel We R Stupid. You can check out his Youtube here.
  3. We usually read about movies drawing inspiration from real-life but seldom do we see real-life taking cues from a movie, unless it's about replicating a proposal or something similar. However, this particular conman has earned himself the name of 'Rick Bahl', a notorious character in a Bollywood movie who cheated women off their money. Julian Sinha, a resident of Ahmedabad has been caught duping over 50 women on matrimonial sites and extracting a large amount of cash from them. © TOI As per a report in TOI, Julian posed as an Army Officer called Sidhart Mehra and used pictures of other men to lure women on matrimonial sites. The case came into light when one of the women filed a case against him and further investigation revealed that he had a history of duping over 50 women. © Twitter Sinha asked the woman for Rs. 50,000 to invest in a house and stopped returning her calls once he received the amount. The man has been caught and is in police custody now. Wonder what he said when he was finally caught. Probably something like 'kya karun oh ladies, main hun aadat se majboor?'
  4. Maniesh Paul is one of the most famous hosts of the general entertainment category in the country right now, and he obviously does an amazing job at showcasing eclectic talents. Little did we know that he will do an equally brilliant job at showcasing to us our own financial insecurities, just by wearing a pair of shoes and carrying a fanny pack (that costs Rs 90,000). © Viral Bhayani Maniesh was carrying a red fanny pack by Gucci - the 'Gucci Print leather belt bag', which has the logo of Gucci printed on hibiscus red leather, inspired by colourful retro prints from the '80s. He clearly loves it, as he is pairing it with multiple outfits. © Viral Bhayani Before we were done marvelling at the fanny pack, we saw his shoes - and let's just say now all we can think of is, we want them bad. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Maniesh is wearing the Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo “Suptempo” basketball sneakers in Varsity red and white. Designed by Wilson Smith, the Nike Air More Uptempo – known for boasting large “AIR” branding on the lateral and medial sides – is one of the boldest basketball sneakers ever. © Viral Bhayani © Fight Club Now, coming to how much they cost, they might not be as expensive as his Gucci fanny pack, but they sure don't come cheap. They cost around $750, which when converted to INR comes around Rs 55K. © Viral Bhayani Maniesh clearly is making the most out of them, and rightfully so. We would, too!
  5. It happens quite often that a good series keep us hooked for a couple of seasons and then, its quality start degrading. But we still watch it as loyal viewers as we want to see how it ends. Here are 5 such series which got us gripped in the beginning but ended on a sour note: 1. Lost No series could develop the suspense like this one did. And no series could screw up the suspense like this one did either. Perhaps it was the fault of the network. They didn't want this money-making machine to stop, which apparently spoiled the storyline and suspense towards the last couple of seasons. The beginning was amazingly good. A bunch of strangers got stuck on an island which isn't visible to the outside world. It had a story, it had good characters and it had suspense. But they couldn't keep up towards the end and ended the series on a below-par note with a shitty finale. 2. How I Met Your Mother When the series premiered, it was funny! There was character depth, the jokes were good, and Robin was beautifully feisty. And then, they dragged the characters and the story till they just fell flat. I don't know what happened, but Robin wasn't...Robin after the first few seasons. They also managed to turn Barney Stinson from a playboy to a man desperate to sleep with women. The Marshall-Lilly couple became rather annoying and good old Ted became a poor soul. Well, he always was a poor soul actually but the writers made him even sadder. In short, the series lost its charm after the 5th season, to say the least. 3. Heroes A bunch of never-seen-before superheroes and supervillains fighting against each other is a great TV series concept. 'Heroes' was based on the same and had a great first two seasons. The makers should have ended it on a good note but they decided to drag the series further. It somehow seemed that the storyline was going in a loop, if not reverse. It seemed like the same stuff was happening in every episode and nothing was actually getting solved. They just couldn't wrap up the series on a high note. 4. Prison Break As much as I hate to admit it, but the show wasn't the same after the first two seasons. It was clearly seen that they're dragging the show just because the viewers wanted to, despite the bad storyline in the last seasons. They should have stuck to the name and should have shown a prison break instead of whatever the hell they did. A man goes in jail with a cool tattoo of blueprints, finds a way to escape, makes a pretty prison doctor fall in love with him, breaks his wrongly accused brother out, clears his name, the end. Would have been perfect! 5. The Vampire Diaries For the first few seasons, every episode of the series ended like a finale. It was one of the best thrillers I had ever watched. And then, they went overboard with it and started screwing up roughly after the fifth season. Anything and everything was happening in the show after the fifth season. People dying, people coming back, people half dead, half back, and what not! The ending of the show was also not that great. The only thing that made the show entertaining was Damon's recklessness. Yet, most of us stuck to it and watched till it got over for good. Were you as disappointed as I was?
  6. We know there are times when it becomes a little difficult to gauge your girlfriend's mood and even little things you say, can lead to misunderstandings and huge-ass arguments, much against your wishes. While there can be a number of reasons why that is, and trust us, some may even turn out to be valid, it is always a good idea to try and steer clear of a few follies guys tend to make, because they feel it's not a big issue. © Thinkstock Images However, we must acknowledge that a woman's heart, and to some extent, the mind too, is wired a little different than men and there might be a few things which can be an issue for them. Read on to find out how to not make them. 1. Do Not Forget To Text Her Back When You Said You Would If you're guilty of it, can you really blame her? Maybe you said you would text back after the meeting to confirm a plan and then ended up ghosting on her, while she kept waiting for your reply. Not really cool, is it? Also, that might give her a reason to get mad at you. © Thinkstock Images 2. Don't Send Her Curt Replies If your girlfriend is an emoji lover or she is accustomed to you being pretty expressive over text messages, just ensure that you do not send her curt replies because that might turn off her mood. No, we're not saying you need to be super sloppy all the time, but you know, try and strike a balance? 3. Do Not Say Sorry After An Argument Simply To Get It Over With This is something you must avoid at all times, because women can tell when you actually being sorry and when you are saying for the heck of it. If you feel you would rather not have an argument over something at a given point, tell her you're not up for it and would like to have a discussion some other time. © Thinkstock Images 4. Do Not Try To Replicate The Silent Treatment Simply To Annoy Her We know a lot of guys who have tried it and well, it did not really play out as they expected. Have you ever considered that when she gives you the silent treatment it isn't because she's enjoying it, but maybe because she really doesn't have anything to say or add to the discussion? Think about that. But when you try it for a little fun, it might only cause you trouble. 5. Do Not Stay Mum During A Disagreement If You Know She's Waiting For A Conclusive Remark But again, no one expects you to stay mum on an issue that requires your input. If you are in the middle of a disagreement, and you know she expects you to reach a conclusion, staying silent might be a bad idea. Just let her know what you think and all will be well. Hopefully. 6. Do Not Overdo The Playful Leg-Pulling/Nicknaming Every relationship has those quirks where you have pet names for one another, a few which are mostly meant to embarrass the other. But you must be thoughtful about when you overdo it and it's no longer funny. She might end up getting hurt after a point when you don't let it go. Are you guilty of any of these? Do you feel these might be one of the reasons why she got angry at you all of a sudden, when you thought you hadn't done anything? Let us know.
  7. Salman Khan is controversy's favourite child, as his ability to not hold back from making a jibe, often lands him in a soup. Ever since Priyanka Chopra walked out of his film 'Bharat', she has often been the victim of his ire. © Twitter Rumours have it that PeeCee's decision has left him feeling super angry and he has apparently decided to not work with her again. So, when he was asked about the same during a media interaction about Bigg Boss 12', he told he was happy with the developments, while also taking a sly dig at the actress. © Twitter Maintaining his calm persona he said, “It was sweet of her to tell us five days before the shoot that she couldn't do 'Bharat'. I'm glad Katrina is part of the film. She was Atul's (producer) first choice. But Priyanka called Ali and said she wanted to do Bharat, so we considered her." Wow! That's harsh but point blank at the same time. And did he just make a revelation that none of us knew about? © Twitter When asked about his marriage, as always, he said, “Boss is one of the biggest properties on television, with which I have had the longest relationship in my life so far. Maybe I should get married to Bigg Boss, there are various advantages to it." Well, we hope the cold war between the two stars ends soon, because we would love to see PeeCee and Salman sharing screen space once again.
  8. Have you ever watched a movie and wondered how did the makers even come up with a concept that is so unique and different? 'Go Goa Gone' was one such example and was indeed a great watch. Watching it while you're seriously stoned makes the experience oh, so much better, wouldn't you agree? The horror-comedy starring Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Kemmu and Vir Das had every element that promised to take you on a hysterical ride. And adding more to the fun were Zombies. Well, the movie certainly exceeded expectations and now the makers are all set to make 'Go Goa Gone 2'. But this time Babaji ki booty has got a new quirky twist. TBH it's exciting. (c) Eros Now This time they won't be fighting Zombies but will have creatures from another planet coming to entertain us. It's the season of Aliens! “It's a really crazy fun script. Last time, we had zombies. This time, Saif and the gang will fight aliens. It's set in Manali and has been titled 'Go Goa Gone 2: Babaji Ki Booti'. We plan to begin the shoot sometime in the second quarter of 2019 because otherwise, Manali will be too cold for us to shoot in,” producer Dinesh Vijan told DNA. (c) Eros Now Talking about the film Saif Ali Khan told a leading daily, “We are doing 'Go Goa Gone 2'. It's an exciting idea and I've really liked it. I will return as Boris in the sequel. But this time, I'll be on a different mission. Raj and DK have found an interesting premise for the second instalment, which is in sync with the first part. They are currently writing the script. The other characters played by Kunal Kemmu and Vir Das will also be a part of it. We start filming next January.” (c) Eros Now There are a few changes in the movie this time; a female lead will be seen assisting Boris in his mission. The original cast will be reprising their roles and we will see two new additions in the movie. Get ready for another maddening dose of Babaji ki booty!
  9. The World Wide Web really is a mysterious place because it constantly unearths strange things for people to go crazy over. We know you agree but if you're still wondering why, then let us begin by asking you if you remember a puzzling image of a certain blue dress (in my case) doing the rounds of social media in 2015? This is the one: What colour dress do you see? We found out whether #thedress is blue & black, or gold & white http://t.co/X3oOPbg82w pic.twitter.com/JGvZlfXlJA — Sky News (@SkyNews) February 27, 2015 Now that we have refreshed your memory, we'll tell you what the latest craze is all about. Netizens have now stumbled upon a similar image that has boggled their minds and the tweeple have lost its sh*t over it already. It started when 9GAG posted this image on Twitter: Is this a door, or a beach? Don't let this become the next 'Black and Blue Dress' pleasehttps://t.co/4HN5KOrUgu pic.twitter.com/lhqYgTAjd8 — 9GAG (@9GAG) August 27, 2018 Ever since netizens came across it, the chase for a correct answer has begun and the entire Twitter nation has been divided over it. Here is what the twitterati has to say about the photo: Door? Beach? @fatamorgana1_ — Anissa Firdawaty (@anissafirda3) August 27, 2018 door.. — annisa (@dharbours) August 27, 2018 No it's a beach. Come on it's obvious there's waves — Chris Pajtas (@ChrisPajtas) August 30, 2018 And then there is this user: It's SUPERMAN!! ð — A Marina Daulay (@aMarinaDaulay) August 27, 2018 But most of them seem to see different things: A beach for sure âð¼ — Rabin Singh Basnet (@rabinsbasnet) August 27, 2018 It's a door! No replicate — Cesar Leal Gonzalez (@cesarini15) August 27, 2018 Where the hell is the door — Joran Brensdal (@rules_jeff) August 31, 2018 What do you think? A beach or a door?
  10. Cricket needs no introduction in India. The country's obsession with the sport can be ascertained from the fact that cricket is often labelled as a religion in this part of the world. Thus, it's quite understandable to see the likes of Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni enjoying unmatched spotlight. But, while the cricketers continue to enjoy their demigod status, one woman has managed to carve her own niche in the country's beloved sport. Mayanti Langer has established herself as one of the most recognised faces in a sport that is dominated by men. With her unique insights and exceptional analysis on the game, the 33-year-old has managed to create her own fan-following. For someone who aspired to be a graphic designer, Mayanti has surely come a long way to dominate the gentleman's game with her TV shows. But, despite her skills in front of the camera and great understanding of the game, she is still not immune to sexism - something that continues to infest various sports. Constantly criticised for her looks and attire, Mayanti has often been subject to trolls on social media. © Instagram/@mayantilangerofficial In fact, she recently revealed how she dealt with body shaming and sexism that has been a persistent problem in her glamorous field. Speaking her mind on an episode of Miss Field, she said: "I don't think it [body shamming] was that significant till last year's ICC Champions Trophy. So, I got trolled badly for my lungi skirt. It was hilarious because I myself was laughing at the memes. Yes, I became a meme". Talking to the show's anchor Shibani Dandekar, she also spoke about an article that was aimed at her wardrobe. "There was an article written about me, about wearing 5-inches heels and wearing skirts and wearing sleeveless and wearing this and why can't I wear Indian clothes and why can't I wear pants and suits and I'm like, what's your problem if I want to wear 5-inches heels? Because I'm comfortable in them," she said. "No one has forced me to wear them and that is my choice. And I just felt that – this is the biggest problem! I was like the guys are just going to comment on the length of the skirt because they have nothing better to do. The woman is analysing 'why is she wearing 5-inch, isn't this more practical?',” Mayanti added. So, how do you tackle such annoying situations? Well, Mayanti tackled fire with fire. “So this IPL, I did everything, we wore pants, we wore suits, we wore blazers, we wore mini-skirts, we wore dresses, we wore every single thing and it didn't make a difference," she claimed. © Instagram/@mayantilangerofficial Apart from being policed over her body and outfits, Mayanti has also faced criticism and continues to get trolled heavily every time her husband Stuart Binny fails to perform on the cricket field. From being labelled as 'too good' for Binny to attracting heinous tags including 'gold digger', Mayanti has undoubtedly faced it all. But, while her cricketing skills might not be up to the mark, this woman is still more than capable of hitting the trolls for a six with her 'devil may care' attitude.
  11. Sometimes in life it takes time to completely close the 'X-Files'. By the X-Files I obviously mean someone's baggage from a past relationship. A lot of people want to move forward from an incomplete or bad relationship to get over the last person they were dating as soon as possible. While there are other ways to do it, the easiest way is to jump to another person, just so you can forget the last person you were dating. A lot of women adopt this process as well and sometimes they're not able to get over their ex. © Fox Star Studios But if you're with someone or like someone and have an inkling they're still hung up over their ex, you should definitely give them their due time and space to completely get over whatever they're hung up on, before you move any further. If you don't do that, you'll always find yourself compromising situations you rather not be a part of! Here are 5 obvious yet subtle warning signs she's not over her ex and you need to movie out of her way pronto! (1) She Will Keep Bringing Him Up In Conversations Be it a negative conversation or a positive one about her past, her ex seems to come up a lot. If it's a girl you're meeting for the first time and she randomly talks about her ex-boyfriend a lot, you have to know she's not entirely over him. Yes, if it's a new relationship, talking about your past is healthy, in order to know your SO a little better. But if her past keeps coming up in conversations she has with you then you should be wary about the fact that she's not over her ex boyfriend entirely. (2) He's Everywhere You Guys Plan To Go She invites you to a friend's party, he's there. She asks you to accompany her to her favourite bar, he's there. She takes you out to a pet festival and he's there with his dog. Coincidence? I think not! Either she knows the places he frequents so she can take you there and make him jealous or catch a glimpse of him or she just wants to run into him because she's not over him! If you see that happen a lot, then you know she's not over him! (3) She's A Different Person Around Him If she's still into her ex, you will notice her body language change accordingly, whenever he's around. She'll either become very conscious of his presence and behave awkwardly or she'll put her arms around you to make him jealous. If she is indifferent towards his presence, then you have nothing to worry about. (4) She Compares Her Current Situation To Her Past If you find yourself or the situation you're in with her a constant comparison to her past, then she's definitely still delving into it. It's not your fault if she compares you, so don't take it like that. Every relationship is different and if she's continuously comparing you, she needs to get over her past! (5) She's Constantly In Touch With Him While it's healthy to end a relationship in a good way or end it on amicable terms and it's okay to remain friends with your ex, if there is really nothing left there, it's not okay if she's chatting and talking to him every day, while you're around. Even if they're talking over the phone often, there is definitely something to worry about. It definitely means there is some unfinished business there. So, it's really not rocket science to figure if the girl you're into is in fact still into her ex. You just need to pay attention to these subtle, yet obvious signs and save yourself some trouble!
  12. Festival time at every Indian household is a time for celebration, and Rakhi is no different. The annual fanfare and the celebrations have kickstarted. Starting obviously with me brainstorming over what to gift my sister this year. Reflecting on this sacred bond between siblings got me thinking why should this 'raksha bandhan' be one-sided? As my sister ties the rakhi on my wrist for my protection from all evil, who is doing that for her? Why should the brothers receive all the prayers and the sisters be let off with nothing? Well, this year, we brothers need to act differently and more responsibly. Ditch the usual gifting idea of chocolates and hampers, your sister deserves the gift of health. Here are 5 incredible healthy things you can gift her this Rakhi. Stay At A Detox Resort Unsplash Studies suggest that girls dealing with the daily stress of a fast-paced city life have higher rates of mental illness. In fact, urbanites have a 21% increased risk of developing an anxiety disorder and a 39% increased risk of having a mood disorder compared with residents of rural areas, according to a study. So, select a de-stressing programme that suits your sister's wellness needs to heal her from within. Book a nice detox resort for her stay. We bet you won't hear her complaining. Vipassana For Inner Peace Unsplash Did you know PCOS is on the rise in India, and 1 in every 10 girls is affected by it?

  13. In this digital world of all things viral, every day a new video pops up making us fall off our seat laughing. I was just going about my day, scrolling Facebook when I happened to see a video of this #sleepyuncle! Aisha Bhatia very lovingly uploaded a video of her father Arvind Bhatia who was caught snoring at the breakfast table. Snoring, camera, father, well, these three things were enough to make this short clip go viral on Facebook, and Aisha seems to be having the last laugh. Here's what the video is all about. Ready for work, sitting at the breakfast table, Mr. Sleepy starts a snooze-fest quite literally! Caught off-guard by the downpour of snores, his children turn the ugly snores into a beautiful melody. Not sure if that is possible or not? Go ahead take a look at the video while we dig deeper into the world wide web to know more about the #sleepyuncle.
  14. With the increased consumption of digital content, renowned and new filmmakers have brought a variety of short films which shall enthrall you in a very short span of time. Here is a look at some of the Hindi short films available on YouTube that are worth your time. Chutney Director: Jyoti Kapur Das Cast: Tisca Chopra, Adil Hussain, Rasika Duggal, Sumit Gulati This short film is as spicy and flavorsome as it gets with an unrecognizable Tisca Chopra, who is sharing gossips with Rasika Duggal over pakoras and thanda on her terrace. The short film which has garnered over 121 million views on YouTube is witty, dark and delicious. Jyoti Kapur Das presents this short film in a terrific way by opening up different layers to the story slowly and steadily. She intrigues her audience right from the beginning and one simply cannot wait for the mystery to unfold. Watch it for yourself and unlock the mystery. Juice Director: Neeraj Ghaywan Cast: Shefali Shah, Manish Prakash Chaudhuri With a terrific Shefali Shah playing a housewife in 'Juice', Neeraj Ghaywan (who has also directed 'Masaan') presents the ideology of male entitlement in the society. The story is set around a small gathering of husband's male friends who are enjoying snacks and discussing politics over booze and cigarettes while the women are cooking in the kitchen. It presents the idea of ingrained prejudice against women directly in the face of audience by segregating the gender role-play in a typical Indian society. It is interesting to see Shefali Shah emote beautifully through her eyes and the way she owns her character, Manju. The Schoolbag Director: Dheeraj Jindal Cast: Rasika Duggal, Sartaj Kakkar Set against the backdrop of Peshawar attacks of 2014, the film touches upon the act of terrorism and the innocent lives it costs. The film is about a heart-warming tale of a mother-son relationship on the eve of the son's birthday and the sudden turn of events in their life. Rasika Duggal is another powerhouse of talent and her work in short films like 'Chutney', 'The Schoolbag' and Zoya Akhtar directed 'Lust Stories' segment is testimony to it. Ahalya Director: Sujoy Ghosh Cast: Radhika Apte, Soumitra Chatterjee, Tota Roy Chowdhury Sujoy Ghosh directed 'Ahalya' gives us the feel of old mysterious short thrillers, which people used to read in newspapers or magazines. The film begins and ends at the same point leaving it open-ended and leaving some unanswered questions for the viewers. It leaves you intrigued while wanting for more. The Guest Director: Ayappa K. M. Cast: Shefali Shah, Davinder Madan Winner at the Mumbai Short Film Festival, 'The Guest' in its 8-minute run-time takes us through an unexpected journey of a young man, whose car breaks down in the mountains. As the film progresses, an unsettling eeriness creeps in the atmosphere and concludes leaving the film open to our wildest imaginations. Chhuri Director: Mansi Jain Cast: Tisca Chopra, Anurag Kashyap, Surveen Chawla Similar to the setting of extra-marrital affairs in 'Chutney', Tisca Chopra starrer 'Chhuri' is more direct and sharp like a knife. The film is about a cheating husband who finds excuses to meet her mistress while the wife manages the household. The twist in the tale is what happens when the wife already knows it. The most likeable part about this film is the quirky and clever take on the concept of extra-marrital affairs without resorting to melodrama or revenge saga.
  15. It is said that there are seven people in this world who look like you. Have you been fortunate enough to come across your doppelganger yet? And no, a celeb who looks like you does not count!

His role in 'Sholay' will always remain close to every Bollywood buff's heart!
  16. Besides making headlines over her reported engagement to American singer Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra also came under the spotlight for walking out of Salman Khan's 'Bharat' just in 'the Nick of time' (forgive the pun!). Well, you already know the rumours we suppose. In case you don't, it is being speculated that she will soon marry her beau Nick Jonas and that certain things are already in motion. © Twitter PeeCee pulling out of 'Bharat' has broken the hearts of many fans, who were waiting to see her return to Bollywood after a long gap. But amidst all of this, she has landed a big Hollywood project that has caught our attention. The talented diva will soon be seen in an upcoming movie titled 'Cowboy Ninja Vikings'. Starring Chris Pratt, the movie had already created quite a buzz, as it is based on the graphic novel by A.J. Lieberman and illustrator Riley Rossmo. Priyanka has landed the part as the leading lady in the movie, which was quite a sought-after role. Turns out, it was a chemistry test with Pratt that made her the perfect pick for the job. © Twitter According to a report in EW.com, Priyanka will be seen sharing screen space with Chris in the upcoming action drama from Universal Pictures. The movie focuses on a lethal agent (Pratt) who is a multifaceted assassin, whose treatment by a psychotherapist has left him with the ability to manifest the deadliest attributes of the three titular personas: a Cowboy, a Ninja, and a Viking. Our desi girl has been locked-in to star opposite Chris, but nothing much is known about her character yet. After 'Baywatch' this will be her next Hollywood project, where she will be seen playing a substantial character. Priyanka just recently wrapped up shooting for the Liam Hemsworth starrer 'Isn't It Romantic?' And now, she has this new project in her kitty, a clear sign that Hollywood is welcoming her with open arms. Well, we bet our screens will be on fire when we see Chris and Priyanka together, possibly in a romantic tangle. Can't wait!
  17. 'Fortnite' is one of the most popular games on the planet right now and this free-to-play game has managed to bring in millions of micro-transactions, that have boosted the developer's revenues exponentially. © Epic Games While there have been similar short-lived gaming sensations like 'Candy Crush' and 'Pokemon Go', 'Fortnite' has broken all records. Between the release of the current version in September and at the end of May, 'Fortnite' brought in more than US$ 1.2 billion, according to SuperData Research. © Epic Games The is run by Epic Games Inc. that was founded by Tim Sweeney twenty-seven years ago in his parents' basement.

'PUBG' (PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds), another competing game with the Battle Royale format has sold more than 50 million copies so far and has 400 million active players. © Tim Sweeney / BCCL Fortnite's iOS version made an average of US$2 million per day over a 10-day period following the start of Season 5 earlier this month. Epic is giving back some of the generated money and has promised US$ 100 million in total prize money for the games 2018-19 game season. Instead of purchasing a full-fledged game for an average of US$40, users can buy online virtual currency, V-Bucks that can be exchanged for in-game add-ons.

Interestingly, the company also has a tiny stake in Bluehole, the company behind 'PUBG'. It is not yet known how much is 'Fortnite' affecting the Tencent Games' balance sheet though.

  18. Just like India and Pakistan, Gautam Gambhir and Shahid Afridi share a rivalry like no other in international cricket. No one can possibly forget their explosive on-field exchange which had set the tempers soaring during the 3rd ODI between India and Pakistan at Kanpur in 2007. While Gambhir is potentially out of contention of making the Team India cut, Afridi has already called time on his career. But, despite being away from international cricket, their rivalry transcended off the field after the former Pakistani cricketer publicly claimed that he will never be seen hanging out with the Delhi opener. The present-day scenario is no different and there is no love lost between the two cricketers. On 3 April, when Afridi was battling serious backlash from the Indians following his insensitive comments on the ongoing dispute in Kashmir, the Delhi Daredevils (DD) captain wasted no time in taking a pot shot at his old nemesis. Media called me for reaction on @SAfridiOfficial tweet on OUR Kashmir & @UN. What's there to say? Afridi is only looking for @UN which in his retarded dictionary means “UNDER NINTEEN” his age bracket. Media can relax, @SAfridiOfficial is celebrating a dismissal off a no- ball!!! — Gautam Gambhir (@GautamGambhir) April 3, 2018 Taking to Twitter, Gambhir wrote: "Media called me for reaction on @SAfridiOfficial tweet on OUR Kashmir & @UN. What's there to say? Afridi is only looking for @UN which in his retarded dictionary means “UNDER NINTEEN” his age bracket. Media can relax, @SAfridiOfficial is celebrating a dismissal off a no- ball!!!". Appalling and worrisome situation ongoing in the Indian Occupied Kashmir.Innocents being shot down by oppressive regime to clamp voice of self determination & independence. Wonder where is the @UN & other int bodies & why aren't they making efforts to stop this bloodshed? — Shahid Afridi (@SAfridiOfficial) April 3, 2018 Earlier in the day, Afridi became the subject of immense criticism for his insensitive tweet about Kashmir where he labelled Indian army as an "oppressive regime". "Appalling and worrisome situation ongoing in the Indian Occupied Kashmir.Innocents being shot down by oppressive regime to clamp voice of self determination & independence. Wonder where is the @UN & other int bodies & why aren't they making efforts to stop this bloodshed?," he tweeted. Afridi's tweet was in reference to the series of counter-insurgency operations in three different areas of South Kashmir on Sunday. Indian armed forces handed a major setback to the terror groups in the Valley. A total of 12 terrorists were gunned down in what turned out to be one of the biggest counter-offensives against terrorist outfits in recent times in Kashmir. The operations rendered a severe blow to terror groups such as Hizbul Mujahideen and Lashkar-e-Taiba, but it sadly came at a cost of five lives. Two civilians and three Army jawans lost their lives during the gruelling operations. While the details on how or why the two civilians were killed isn't revealed, the demise of the three Army soldiers once again highlighted the never-ending sacrifices they make to keep us safe.

  24. James Gunn, the celebrated director of the super hit 'Guardian Of The Galaxy' franchise, is facing severe backlash and heat at the moment for something that happened almost a decade ago. The Walt Disney Studio has taken the decision to fire Gunn from the franchise, after some of his old tweets from 2008 and 2009 have resurfaced and sent shockwaves across the globe. © Disney The director apparently had tweeted offensive jokes earlier about rape, pedophilia, the 9/11 attacks and even the Holocaust, which have left everyone disgusted on the social media. #WalkAway pic.twitter.com/cI8BdWxedu — Jack Posobiecðºð¸ (@JackPosobiec) July 20, 2018 Gunn has officially released a statement accepting the decision and has offered an explanation, as well as an apology for the same. The statement reads as follows: “My words of nearly a decade ago were, at the time, totally failed and unfortunate efforts to be provocative. I have regretted them for many years since — not just because they were stupid, not at all funny, wildly insensitive, and certainly not provocative like I had hoped, but also because they don't reflect the person I am today or have been for some time. Regardless of how much time has passed, I understand and accept the business decisions taken today. Even these many years later, I take full responsibility for the way I conducted myself then. All I can do now, beyond offering my sincere and heartfelt regret, is to be the best human being I can be: accepting, understanding, committed to equality, and far more thoughtful about my public statements and my obligations to our public discourse. To everyone inside my industry and beyond, I again offer my deepest apologies.”. The social media is abuzz with a lot of mixed opinions over this shocking development. While some feel the decision was obvious because of the nature of the tweets, some are calling it simply 'hypocritical'. James Gunn made awful "jokes" years ago, and eventually grew up & apologised for it. Disney knew this, didn't care & happily hired him Someone starts screaming about it, so Disney happily fired him, not because of his "jokes", but because people were talking about them — Brett Tear (@TearofGrace) July 21, 2018 The problem I have with Disney firing James Gunn is not the reasonn because what he did tweet 10 yrs ago was disgusting. But the fact that they keep Johnny Depp and John Lasseter in their business is hypocritical. Be consistent. At least Gunn didn't beat up or rape anyone. — wth?! (@just_a_walk) July 21, 2018 Meanwhile, Dave Bautista, who plays the character of Drax in the GOTG franchise, has lashed out against this decision and has come out in strong support of Gunn. I will have more to say but for right now all I will say is this..@JamesGunn is one of the most loving,caring,good natured people I have ever met. He's gentle and kind and cares deeply for people and animals. He's made mistakes. We all have. Im NOT ok with what's happening to him — Dave Bautista (@DaveBautista) July 21, 2018 For now, the fate of the next installment of the movie is on hold, while the whole world is still coming to terms with this piece of new information.
