  1. At the beginning of the second wave of Covid in India when cases were doubling up everyday, Uttarakhand held the Mahakumbh Mela in Haridwar which witnessed hundreds of devotees. The religious gathering put millions at risk of the infection as the devotees dipped in Ganga in large numbers and then travelled back, exposing others to the virus as well. © Twitter Even after the entire nation condemned the move and pleaded with the government to shelve the kumbh mela this year, it didn’t budge. What happened next was the biggest Covid test scam which painted the religious gathering as completely benign to the global crisis. The stats showed that the Covid positivity report at Kumbh was only 2.8% which is incredible (read BS) since it was 14% in other states which were in complete lockdown. We don’t know who was buying this till now, but it is finally being unmasked, thanks to an LIC agent Vipan Mittal from Faridkot. © Twitter When he got a Covid report for the test he never took, he knew something was fishy. Fearing that his personal details have been wrongly used, he went to the authorities and even health department officials, before finally taking his case to the ICMR. He said, “My Covid-19 report said I was negative, but I hadn’t got tested. I went to local district authorities, but I was told to go away. Health department officials were also not interested in finding out what was going on. As a last resort, I filed an email complaint with the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).” © iStock He also filed an RTI plea regarding the testing at Kumbh and now a probe is underway. The investigation reveals that lakhs of fake reports were made with fake personal details of people and Mittal was among them. The experts had expressed their doubts about unbelievably low positivity rate despite allegedly large testing held at Kumbh which is now finally unraveling to be a massive scam to brush off the irresponsibility of the authorities. © Reuters The agencies conducting tests during the Kumbh period are on close watch and the Haridwar district administration has been asked to present the action-taken report to hold everyone accountable for this scam. © iStock All it took was a humble SMS containing the negative results and the eagerness of Mittal to get to the bottom of the truth to expose a scam which probably took hundreds of lives.

  2. India’s youngest billionaire Nikhil Kamath, co-founder of Zerodha, was heavily criticised when it came to the fore that he had cheated against chess legend Viswanathan Anand while participating in an online chess game, part of a charity event to raise funds for India’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. After facing flak, Kamath issued a casual apology admitting that he had “people analyzing the game” and also took the help of the “computers” to decide his moves. Kamath’s account was later banned for using unfair means to beat the five-time world champion Anand. Deploying various cheating tactics, Kamath managed to attain an accuracy of 99.0 per cent while Anand who played by fair means could only manage 92.9 per cent move accuracy. Yesterday was a celebrity simul for people to raise money It was a fun experience upholding the ethics of the game.I just played the position onthe board and expected the same from everyone . pic.twitter.com/ISJcguA8jQ — Viswanathan Anand (@vishy64theking) June 14, 2021 While fans wondered how a novice like Kamath defeated the Indian legend, American Grand Master Hikaru Nakamura, on his YouTube channel, has decoded how the Indian billionaire followed the moves recommended by the computer and got the better of Anand, bypassing chess.com’s security algorithms. Chess.com has lifted the ban from Kamath’s account after Anand expressed no interest in pursuing the matter further. Reacting to the issue, Danny Rensch, chief chess officer of Chess.com, said that Anand doesn’t want to take the matter any further and has elected to reopen all the accounts, which came under deep scrutiny after the charity event. "Regarding the games played in the Vishy Anand simul for charity, as well as with the full cooperation of Vishy Anand, Chess.com has elected to reopen all of the accounts in question during the event," Danny Rensch, chief chess officer, Chess.com said in an official statement. Statement: pic.twitter.com/Ks36iS65f7 — Chess.com - India (@chesscom_in) June 15, 2021 "Given the forthcoming cooperation of the players and the clarification that not all the rules were properly understood, neither Chess.com nor Anand himself sees any reason to uphold the matter any further," Danny Rensch added. "General Note Per Chess.com rules found here, unrated games, as such were played in the event--are not always played within the same parameters. Anand, as the simul giver, has expressed no interest in further pursuing the matter," he said. Yesterday was a celebrity simul for people to raise money It was a fun experience upholding the ethics of the game.I just played the position onthe board and expected the same from everyone . pic.twitter.com/ISJcguA8jQ — Viswanathan Anand (@vishy64theking) June 14, 2021 "While he wants clearly expressed that he does not endorse the use of non-approved assistance in chess, he agrees fully that the games were played in good faith for the fun and good intentions of the charitable efforts, and wishes the matter be put to rest," he added. Quote-tweeting Chess.com’s official statement about restoring Kamath’s account, Anand tweeted: "It's time to move on and get closure on this". It’s time to move on and get closure on this. https://t.co/9H4jk0Pj9Z — Viswanathan Anand (@vishy64theking) June 15, 2021 View the full article
  3. There are people who just don’t take leg days that seriously, and then there are those who go all-out bonkers for that. Well, former World’s Strongest Man, Eddie Hall will tell you, why, it is extremely crucial that in either case, balance is important, and knowing your limit is key. © Instagram/eddiehallwsm For those of you who aren’t that keen on fitness and bodybuilding, Eddie Hall won the World’s Strongest Man competition back in 2017 and formerly held the Guinness World Record for the world’s heaviest deadlift, at 500, which he set in 2016. It was only in 2020 that the record was broken by Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who lifted 501 kgs. © Instagram/eddiehallwsm In an old video of his that has suddenly gone viral now, Hall can be seen building up to his target of leg pressing1,000 kgs, on one of his regular leg day workouts. In the video, Hall can be heard saying that this is the heaviest weight that he has gone for, while working on his legs. He starts out slowly, with fewer weights to get his momentum, as well as his muscles, going. In the video, we see that soon after he passes the normal weight hat he pushes, he starts struggling. © YouTube/Eddie 'The Beast' Hall So much so, that he in fact soils himself, having crapped in his gym shorts. After getting cleaned up, he goes for the target he set for the day - the 1000 kg mark. Realising that this is going to be mentally taxing for him, Hall starts to psyche himself up as he loads more weights onto the machine. He then takes his position, still psyching himself up. He tries to push the press but struggles to lift it. All this while, we can hear him grunting, and shouting. © Youtube/Eddie 'The Beast' Hall He finally manages to push the press away and does a couple of presses. With one last grunt, he completes the press, locks it in its default position, and just passes out for a few seconds. Almost immediately he regains his consciousness and asks if he blacked out. © Youtube/Eddie 'The Beast' Hall Bodybuilders often have to work with ridiculous weights in order to stand out. Trained gym trainers and medical experts, all agree, that activities such as deadlifts, bench presses and leg presses, should all be done when you’re fully aware of the limitations of your own body, and within those limits. © Instagram/eddiehallwsm Hall himself has stated that there have been some serious repercussions that he has had to live with because of the ungodly amount of weight he has tried to lift over the years. Eddie has had blackouts, nose bleeds, and some spinal injuries while attempting to lift all those weights. View the full article
  4. We all have been crazy for our favourite Bollywood celebrity at some point in our lives. For example, sticking their pictures on the wall or making them a part of scrapbooks. That's the level of simplicity we maintained. In rare cases, some fans have gone bonkers over B-towners and also turned into obsessive stalkers for them. This truly became a dark side for celebrities. Here are 8 celebrities whose die-hard fans made their lives really hard. 1. Sushmita Sen © Instagram/ Sushmita Sen In the movie Dastak, Sushmita deals with an obsessive stalker. The same happened in real life as well. A die-hard fan was so smitten by Sushmita that he started sending her luxurious gifts. Sushmita turned a blind eye to it until one day when the mailbox had a bridal dress and accessories. This was the turning point, and then began threats to either marry the fan or he will die. She filed a complaint after posting this. 2. John Abraham © Instagram/John Abraham John has been every girl's dream man. But, it was actually a male fan who turned his obsessive stalker. After Dostana, one of his die-hard male fans started ringing on his landline every day and would ask if John could meet him, to such an extent he even reached out to his parents. When John was informed about it, that's when he filed a complaint. 3. Hrithik Roshan © Instagram/Hrithik Roshan The Greek God of Bollywood was also a victim of stalking. He was surprised to hear from security when he got to know a Russian girl named Anna was stalking him. As per reports, the girl would wait outside his apartment and she also tried to sneak into his office twice. That's when Hrithik sought help from the police and lodged a complaint against her. 4. Varun Dhawan © Instagram/Varun Dhawan Varun Dhawan has a crazy fan following but even in his case, the love turned into a nightmare. The Dilwale actor was proposed to by a girl and she was seen outside his house. He even tried to pacify her, but things got ugly as his family members and staff started receiving gratuitous calls. Varun then asked the security to intervene. 5. Sunny Leone © Instagram/Sunny Leone Sunny Leone was a victim of cyber-bullying. She was once threatened by a fan, who said he would come to her place and harm her. She also recalled being bullied all the while and in self-defence, she would always carry a knife with her while opening the door. Sunny mentioned that it was a dreadful experience for her and it still affects her. 6. Shruti Haasan © Instagram/Shruti Haasan Shruti Haasan is a famous star down south and has established her position in Bollywood too. Even she had to deal with an obsessive stalker. As per reports, he was a part of the crew and used to show up at her doorstep. He also attempted to strangle shruti. She was so terrified after it that she filed a complaint against the stalker. 7. Akshay Kumar © Instagram/Akshay Kumar Akshay Kumar has a huge female fan following. There was a time when a girl ran away from her house in Lucknow to meet the Khiladi of Bollywood. When she missed the chance to meet him, she ended up cutting her wrist. She was then rushed to the hospital by Akshay Kumar himself. 8. Shahid Kapoor © Instagram/Shahid Kapoor Even Shahid Kapoor's case was no different. In fact, he was stalked by legendary actor Raaj Kumar's daughter, named Vastavikta Pandit. She used to follow him everywhere and said that she was Shahid's wife. In fact, the stalking escalated to such an extent that she bought a house next to his. When things turned unbearable, Shahid finally filed a complaint. View the full article
  5. The thing about SRK is, even if he steps out on the road wearing a sack, it won't matter one bit to anybody, and people still will freak out and faint, such is the charisma of that man via GIPHY Plus, whenever he dresses for himself, he has such class, that even after all these years and all these glamorous newcomers, his magic remains intact in terms of style. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani So, doing a fashion analysis on his style game is tricky, because he just knows how to make anything work. However, when it comes to his appearances in movies, there have been good style moves and not so good style moves, in terms of costumes. Let's explore this a bit, shall we? via GIPHY First, let us look at some of his iconic songs where his style game was on fleek. 1. Main Koi Aisa Geet Gaaoon - Yes Boss The ultra-relaxed, all black suit along with an overcoat is something we'd love to wear even today. They say style keeps coming back, and this outfit proves that. Perhaps we'd lose that tie, but the rest is totally 'high-street'. Plus, how comfortable! 2. Humko Humise Churaa Lo - Mohabbatein Those pastel turtlenecks and those sweaters have created more impact on the Indian male fashion psyche than any magazine cover. The fit, the cut, the functionality coupled with just the right bit of whimsy, his fashion game here is A grade. (No idea why Aish is wearing chiffon in sub zero temperatures but how dare you ask that question knowing it's a YRF production you noob?) 3. Tumse Milke Dil Ka Hai Jo Haal - Main Hoon Naa Okay he's a little extra here but DO YOU REMEMBER the craze that 2000s was all about? Plus looking back, even though it was all a little blingy, all of it is put together quite well keeping the Indian fashion canvas in mind. 4. Love You Zindagi - Dear Zindagi Not really a 'song' song but let's just say that his outfits here are so tasteful that one would want to take fashion therapy from him after messing up with too many colours and patterns. Those muted, crisp linens are everything! 5. Zaalima - Raees An all black, flowy pairing of Kurta and Patiala lowers along with a statement headgear should look just like this. Those shades, and everything else about the styling is perfect keeping a desert in mind, but there's no reason why men wouldn't want to just wear something similar to a wedding or engagement. 6. Gerua - Dilwale When this came out, it honestly felt like a tribute to the iconic 'Suraj Hua Maddham', but the outfits here are so much more wearable. All the layering, be it the leather jackets or the blazers, are all well done, and one can easily take inspiration from them for a fashionable fare. 7. Hawayein - Jab Harry Met Sejal This outfit is a classic. Remember how folding your shirt sleeve over your jacket or cardigan had become a thing back then? The zippered woolen cardigan on top of that button down has an appeal that's hard to put a finger on. You know you have worn it just like that if you consider yourself fashionable. Now, let us look at some of the not so well executed fashion moments that even the one and only Shah Rukh Khan wasn't immune from. 1. Love Mera Hit Hit - Billu Barber It's a cracker of a song and we still dance to it (if you don't you're just not cool enough). But what are those outfits? Let's just say any outfit that makes the great SRK or the incredible Deepika look awkward, is a questionable outfit. In this case, every single outfit in this song. Please no. 2. India Waale - Happy New Year An utterly forgettable movie that made us question a lot of things, including the outfits in this song. That horrid blue jacket is a massive red flag for any fashion conscious man. If you look carefully, every single jacket in this song looks poorly thought out and clunky, including Sonu Sood's. Sorry King, they did you dirty here. 3. Ajab Si - Om Shanti Om An iconic song, absolutely no doubt about that. But that outfit is a no-no. No one can carry off that many checks, that too huge, boxy ones in such alarming shades. It's a no from us. 4. Are Re Are - Dil Toh Pagal Hai This movie had pathbreaking fashion moments, we must say. Those who know, know. However, SRK's outfit at the starting of the sync dance scene is guilty of 'trying too much'. The unbuttoned yet tucked in shirt along with that chunky neck piece? In a movie where Karishma Kapoor has taught girls how to dress for the next 20 years or so? Nope. 5. Satrangi Re - Dil SeWhat a movie, what a song. Take a bow, Sonu Nigam, for no one can else could've done those vocals. However, SRK's desert outfit here is just too layered, without any shape or form because of too much fabric that's heavy, and does not do justice to the iconic song that it is. Gerua's desert outfit seems to be the edited version of this one, which actually worked beautifully, on the same man. 6. Yeh Mera Dil - Don 2 Another iconic song where Kareena sizzled like there's no tomorrow, but SRK's outfit failed to. Please never do silk shirts with patterns, and even if you do, NEVER pair it with a tie of the exact same fabric that ends up INSIDE the shirt. Oof. 7. Dance Pe Chance - Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi An incredible song to dance to, no doubt. But let's just say if you're not a 14 year old who's trying to make a TikTok, please don't dress like this. Please. Having said that, we'll all forever be 'Jabra Fans' irrespective of how he dresses, because we are powerless in front of his magic. You do you, King. View the full article
  6. From being a single mom in real life to playing a middle-aged pregnant mother in Badhaai Ho, Neena Gupta has time and again shunned the stereotypes and proved to the world that a woman who’s strong can fight back the odds in the man’s world. She is the epitome of strength and resilience. She is an inspiration to women from all generations who are wanting to chase their dreams and suffering in silence. She recently released her autobiography which was written during the lockdown last year. View this post on Instagram During an Instagram video chat with actor Kareena Kapoor Khan, who launched the book, Neena said, “I would start and wonder, 'What is there to write about my life? Why would people be interested in reading it?' Then the lockdown happened... And I did a lot of thinking about my life and decided to resume writing again. Everything is out of my system now. Things I was hiding for so many years. That's a big relief. I think, maybe after reading the book, even if one person doesn't make the mistake which I did, if they feel 'yeah, we should not do this', it'll be worth it.” Published by Random House India, the book touches upon several milestones of Gupta's life, from her unconventional pregnancy, single parenthood to a successful comeback in Bollywood. Here are the five shocking revelations: Casting CouchMany actresses have opened up on the horrific experiences of the casting couch and how it made a dent in their mental space. Neena shared a shocking incident in the book stating that a renowned South producer offered her to spend the night with him. She shared that she called the producer from the phone lobby, who told her to come up to his room. "My basic instinct told me to not go upstairs. That I should ask him to come down to the lobby instead," she wrote. She was afraid but she went ahead thinking she shouldn’t be missing a golden chance. After talking for the hours, Neena was disinterested as the role felt like a very small part but what happened next sent shivers down her spine. She told him that she had to go. "'Go? Where?" he asked. He seemed genuinely shocked. 'Aren't you going to spend the night here?' Suddenly, I felt like someone had just poured a bucket of ice water on my head. Khoon sookh gaya (My blood froze).” Neena ran out of the room and managed to escape. View this post on Instagram Satish Kaushik Offered To Marry Her When She Was PregnantHer life wasn’t easy. She got pregnant with Masaba while she was in a relationship with former cricketer Sir Viv Richards in the 1980's. Things got awry between Viv and her leaving her all stranded and broken. Neena revealed that Satish came up with a marriage proposal. He told her, “Don’t worry, if the child is born with dark skin, you can just say it’s mine and we’ll get married. Nobody will suspect a thing." View this post on Instagram When Neena’s Mother Tried To End Her LifeNeena's mother was Shakuntala Gupta, a Punjabi girl who tied the knot with a guy from a different caste. In her book, she said, “My father was brave enough to marry my mother for love. But he was also a dutiful son who couldn’t refuse when his father forced him to marry another woman from his community." She added, “This betrayal from my father shattered my mother to the extent that she actually tried (and thankfully failed) to end her life. It took me a while to realize that it wasn’t normal for fathers to leave after dinner every evening. That fathers didn’t come home in the morning for breakfast and a change of clothes before leaving for the office. That fathers didn’t spend the night with some variation of ‘Seema Aunty’ (that’s what we called his other wife; name changed).” View this post on Instagram When Viv Richards Didn’t Talk To Her For 5 YearsNeena recalled an incident when she had to get her daughter admitted to a good school and feared that because of her family situation, Masaba won’t get a good school. Neena's aunt helped her to get an interview with the main trustee of Jamnabai Narsee School and the date was set. It clashed with the date of the trip she had planned with Viv. When he called to enquire about the trip, she told him that Masaba’s interview is equally important and they will have to postpone the trip. “But Vivian didn't understand the importance of it. Or maybe I wasn't clear enough in explaining to him how difficult it was for a child in this situation to get admission in a good school," she wrote. View this post on Instagram She added, “He thought I wasn't serious about meeting him and was just making an excuse to drop out. This wasn't the case at all. He hung up on me, dismissive, and angry, and didn't call me again for five years.” Her Failed First MarriageShe married a young man named Amlan Kusum Ghose. The actor revealed that he was a student at IIT while Neena was pursuing her masters in Sanskrit. Neena opened up about the relationship and said, "Amlan and I would meet in secret on campus, his hostel, or near my house. His parents lived in another city but his grandfather lived in my lane so he would spend festivals and holidays in WEA." Neena got permission to marry him but the marriage didn’t last. View this post on Instagram “Amlan viewed things differently. Given the times and our upbringing, I think he had always assumed that I would eventually settle down and focus on our family. But I had become a bit too ambitious and didn’t see myself ever being a regular housewife. I wanted more from life, and the more theatre I did, the clearer my path became," she said. “During the short time, Amlan and I were married, we never quarreled much. Not about our daily lives, the way our house was run, or about my studies and career. We were both very, very young when we dove into marriage, but to this day, I don’t have a harsh thing to say about him," she added. We are sure that there will be much more in her autobiography. We are planning to grab our copy. What about you? Let us know in the comments section below. View the full article
  7. What’s the most bizarre thing you have seen on a football pitch? No, we are not asking about the crazy skills on display but things that have nothing to do with football. During the Euro 2020 game between Germany and France, a climate activist crash-landed on a football pitch leaving at least two people injured. The incident happened last night ahead of the kick-off of Group F clash between the two European giants. Moments before the kick-off, a Greenpeace activist flew over the pitch with “kick out oil” written on his parachute. Multiple videos of the unfortunate incident, which have since gone viral, show the pilot flying over the pitch and losing his balance after hitting the spidercam cables. A Greenpeace activist lands at Arena Munich with a parachute prior to the UEFA EURO 2020 group F preliminary round soccer match between France and Germany in Munich pic.twitter.com/UBlvQgIvuo — EURO 2020 (@UEFA_Euro_2021) June 15, 2021 After hitting the cables, the pilot sailed towards one of the stands where fans were present in large numbers and caused injuries to several of them. The protester somehow managed to crash-land the parachute on the pitch, which thankfully avoided any catastrophic damage. He was taken off the field by the stewards and was handed over to the Munich Police, who later said that they are considering various criminal charges against the activist for putting several lives at risk. Infuriated by his act, the fans took to social media and demanded strong action be taken against the culprit who put several innocent lives in danger. What a Muppet. This guy should be made to protest from a jail cell. He could have killed himself but more importantly could have seriously hurt someone else. — Sean P S Q (@SeanPSQ1) June 15, 2021I hope this Idiot gets punished — DerBaer42 (@DBaer42) June 15, 2021Right , so let me get this straight; he says “kick out oil” . So how did he get up in the air??? Then he endangers others ….Stupid Fool! — DifferentView (@DifferentView58) June 15, 2021He could have killed someone. — Rumbo Cibeles (@RumboCibeles) June 15, 2021Should have got the same treatment as the US boxing match “fan man”. — Kim Rennie (@KimRennie9) June 16, 2021"This inconsiderate act -- which could have had very serious consequences for a huge number of people attending -- caused injuries to several people attending the game who are now in hospital and law authorities will take the necessary action," the UEFA said in a statement. "The staging of the match was fortunately not impacted by such a reckless and dangerous action, but several people were injured nonetheless." The stunt was a protest against German car manufacturer Volkswagen, one of the sponsors of the European Championship, Greenpeace explained in a Twitter post. Parachute Landing #FRAGER pic.twitter.com/GzonDdOh4a — timmy (@timmysdrei90) June 15, 2021 Greenpeace said their intention was not to hurt anyone and that they regretted any harm caused. "This protest was never intended to disrupt the game or hurt people," the organisation wrote on their official German handle. "We hope that everyone is OK and that no one was seriously injured. © Reuters "Greenpeace actions are always peaceful and non-violent. Unfortunately, not everything went according to plan." As for the match, the incident didn’t impact the start and France won the game 1-0, thanks to a first-half own goal by German defender Mats Hummels. View the full article
  8. There is a very good reason why we Indian men look up to our cricketers for style cues. Well, Shikhar Dhawan reminded us why exactly. © Viral Bhayani The Indian opening batsman was recently spotted at the Mumbai Airport with the rest of the Indian cricketing squad. While all of the guys were dressed like proper fashion icons, the southpaw, was in a league of his own. © Viral Bhayani Shikar Dhawan was seen in a very simple and understated outfit that mainly consisted of a pair of blue slim-fit distressed denim, and a printed white shirt. The outfit in and of itself was a rather dapper one. However, it was the choices of his accessories that really turned heads. © Viral Bhayani First off, is his choice of footwear. We see Dhawan here, wearing a dope looking pair of mojaris or juttis as they are popularly called. The leather mojaris have a dark tan and come courtesy of an Indian luxury label called Voganow, specifically from their Bareskin collection. © Viral Bhayani Because these are customised and made to order, putting a price tag on these jalsas, is a little difficult. However, be prepared to shell out about Rs 6000-7000 for a pair. © Voganow We also like the dope looking backpack that he’s carrying. They are the Christopher Backpack in Navy & Yellow from Louis Vuitton, and boy are they something to look at. The yellow accents and the flaps do give the backpack a quirky character. © Louis Vuitton Because this is a piece from Louis Vuitton and was designed under Virgil Abloh, the backpack is super expensive. The backpack used to retail for about $4,100 or just over Rs 3 Lakhs. However, you can pick up some of these bags from e-commerce platforms that sell used luxury pieces such as these, for a lot cheaper. © Louis Vuitton The highlight of Shikhar’s outfit though, has to be the customised watch that he is wearing. The watch that we see on his wrist is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Ref. No. 26170ST.OO.1000ST.01. © Audemars Piguet Now, normally, this watch looks very basic and does not come with the diamonds that we see on Dhawan’s watch. The diamonds were a part of a custom package that only a few Audemars Piguet retailers will offer their loyal customers. © Viral Bhayani The watch, without the diamonds, retails for about Rs 20.5 Lakhs. Add the diamond package and the price shoots up by about Rs 52 Lakhs. That brings us to a total of Rs 72 Lakhs. © Viral Bhayani Shikhar surely knows his watches. We certainly approve of this desi swag that he’s got on. Seriously man, take a bow. View the full article
  9. The United States Of America, along with a number of other developed countries that are a part of the G7 recently announced that they are going to help out underdeveloped nations across the world, and provide them with vaccines, among other things to help fight COVID-19. © Reuters Well, this was a nice gesture and was appreciated by the leaders of many countries. However, a recent tweet that the US Embassy of Port of Spain Trinidad and Tobago put out has sparked a debate on whether the US government is actually helping out counties in a feasible way, or just engaging in some tokenism. © Reuters The US Embassy for Trinidad and Tobago recently put out this tweet - USA Donates Vaccines to Trinidad and Tobago pic.twitter.com/5S0OTQfJU5 — U.S. Embassy POS (@USinTT) June 14, 2021 In this PR announcement, they said that they are giving away a grand total of 80 Pfizer COVID vaccine vials, along with some other equipment and materials to Trinidad and Tobago. We know what you might be thinking. That the ‘80 vials’ claim might be a typo. However, there has been no clarification on that, so far, so we know that this isn’t a typo. Trinidad and Tobago have a population of about 14 Lakhs. No matter how efficiently you put things to use, or how you stretch it, medical experts cannot extract even 1000 vaccine doses from the 80 vials of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine that the US government has so graciously provided, and that is an overestimation. © Reuters In contrast, India, which was facing a massive vaccine shortage, gave about 40,000 vaccine doses to Trinidad and Tobago, at least 40 times of what the US government has given as aid. The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, popularly known as just the Red Cross, is an international NGO that has actually provided more doses than the US government. © Reuters This “help” was called out on social media immediately for what it actually was - a PR exercise.

  10. The police in India do not have that good an image in most cases. The sleaziness and their tendencies to sneakily ask for bribes are some of the biggest reasons for that. Obviously, as it turns out, the police in our neighbouring countries are no different. © iStock Well, there is one small difference. Here, things are done in a more subtle manner, unlike in Pakistan. © Reuters The Pakistan Police were left red-faced with embarrassment when a local fast food restaurant took to Twitter to share an incident that they had to face earlier this week. © Reuters The management team of a burger joint in Pakistan called Johnny & Jugnu, reported that the police had arrested all of the staff members at one of their locations in Lahore. The arrested staff members included the chefs, the servers as well as the cleaning staff. The reason for their arrest? The outlet refused to give the local policemen free burgers. © Johnny & Jugnu Apparently, the local SHO would often send someone from his staff and demand that the restaurant send free food to the station. One day, when the manager refused to give any more freebies, he was threatened with dire consequences. The next day, he was arrested from the restaurant, and taken away. Soon after that, a team of police constables arrived at the restaurant and arrested 19 other members of staff who were present in the premises. pic.twitter.com/Un57l9qzgd — Gul Rais™ (@Gul_Rais) June 12, 2021 Allegedly, the staff members were detained at the police station for seven hours, during which they were beaten up, abused and constantly told that this is what happens when someone refuses, their boss. This incident caught the attention of the local press, and soon after that got escalated pretty quickly. So much so, that the Punjab Provincial Police suspended all the officers involved in this case and has ordered an inquiry into the situation. IG Punjab Inam Ghani have taken notice of the Johnny and Jugnu restaurant incident and have suspended the SHO Defence C and the staff of the police station involved. No one is allowed to take law into his own hands. Injustice will not be tolerated. All of them will be punished. — Punjab Police Official (@OfficialDPRPP) June 12, 2021 The head of marketing for the restaurant chain said that the only reason why any action was taken, is that the locals had a good relationship with the outlet and that they had been very local on social media. He also said that he welcomes the swift response that the higher-ups at Punjab Police. View the full article

  12. Shubman Gill has seen a meteoric rise in international cricket in the last few months, establishing himself as the first-choice opener alongside Rohit Sharma in the longest format of the game. Gill has time and again emphasised that after his father, former India great Rahul Dravid played a key role in his development during the early phase of his career and he values their advice immensely. Recently he appeared on a cricket podcast and was given in a hypothetical situation where he could only pick one of the two pieces of advice given to him by his father and Dravid, and the answer that he gave proved why is one of the most promising young talents in the country. Oozing with confidence, Gill answered that he would do what he thought was right as that would allow him to play his natural game without worrying about the end result. “I wouldn’t listen to either of the two, I would just listen to myself and decide ‘What do I wanna do? Do I wanna do this? Or do I wanna do that,” Gill said. View this post on InstagramHe further explained the rationale behind his decision saying that by going with his mind, he would make sure that he has no one else to blame for his dismissal and he would know that he got out playing the way that suits him the best. “At the end of the day, when you get out the only person who will be regretting the most is yourself. You would be thinking why I listened to them, at least I could have gotten out doing my thing and this way would have no one to blame it upon,” he added. View this post on InstagramGill also spoke about the coaching technique of Dravid which is focused more on developing a player’s mental strength rather than tinkering with his technique too much. “Rahul sir never asks a player to change his technique or way of playing, rather he tries to make the player mentally strong. He tells you to analyze the game and play well in difficult situations” Gill said on ‘The Grade Cricketer’ podcast. “Rahul sir’s technique was so strong but he never asked any batsman to change their technique. He works on strengthening the mental state of the batsman,” he added. ️ #TeamIndia announce their 15-member squad for the #WTC21 Final pic.twitter.com/ts9fK3j89t — BCCI (@BCCI) June 15, 2021 With only a couple of days left for the World Test Championship final to begin, the India players are gearing up for arguably the biggest Test match of their career.

  13. The Electronics & Information Technology Minister of India; Ravi Shankar Prasad blasted Twitter in a series of Tweets for not complying with the new intermediary guidelines. Prasad tweeted his statement after an incident today involving misinformation about a Tweet that suggested the Uttar Pradesh police was inciting communal violence. © Reuters “It is astounding that Twitter which portrays itself as the flag bearer of free speech, chooses the path of deliberate defiance when it comes to the Intermediary Guidelines,” Ravi Shankar Prasad said in a statement posted on the social media platform. Prasad questioned Twitter on its refusal to comply with the new IT rules and after reports suggesting that the social media giant will most likely lose its intermediary status due to non-compliance. The new IT rules were notified to social media companies in February 2021 and so far, Twitter has been the only social media giant that has refrained from complying. "Due to their non-compliance, their protection as an intermediary is gone. Twitter is liable for penal actions against any Indian law just as any publisher is,” government sources told ANI. Prasad added to the Twitter thread saying that the company was “given multiple opportunities to comply with the same, however, it has deliberately chosen the path of non-compliance.” “The culture of India varies like its large geography. In certain scenarios, with the amplification of social media, even a small spark can cause a fire, especially with the menace of fake news. This was one of the objectives of bringing the Intermediary Guidelines,” he added. © Reuters Prasad also suggested that Twitter has alleged bias where it only labels content as manipulated media “only when it suits, its likes and dislikes,” he wrote. Referencing the incident that took place in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, Prasad said, “What happened in UP was illustrative of Twitter’s arbitrariness in fighting fake news. While Twitter has been over-enthusiastic about its fact-checking mechanism, its failure to act in multiple cases like UP is perplexing & indicates its inconsistency in fighting misinformation.” © Reuters He also said questioned, “why platforms like Twitter showing reluctance in following Indian laws designed to give voice to the victims of abuse and misuse?” It seems like Twitter will continue to face difficulties in India until the company decides to fully comply with the new IT rules. While Twitter did say earlier this week that the company has appointed an interim Chief Compliance Officer, it seems like the company is treading thin ice here if the company continues to defy the Indian Government.

  14. Of the many things that divide Indians, one is the language barrier, and the reason for that is we don’t have a national language. Every state has a different regional language and although we take immense pride in the diversity of our country, we cannot deny that a common language like Hindi or English is the only last resort for people to converse. © iStock Also, English is a globally accepted language which makes it easier for developing countries like India to trade, communicate and exchange knowledge and information internationally. Pertaining to this, the introduction of English medium education becomes necessary for the people. The Department of Higher Education of Andhra Pradesh recently said in a release that it “strongly feels” the introduction of English for undergraduate students will be beneficial for their career. And, with that in mind, they have decided to make the transition of Telugu medium courses into English medium for all UG colleges across the state. © iStock In a recent meeting held by the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, the state government announced that English medium will be made compulsory in all undergraduate degree colleges, private aided, government or unaided across states for the year 2021-22. © Instagram The release issued by the government backed up their decision saying, “According to the findings in India Skills Report of 2019, English figured among the top three skills, along with learning agility and adaptability, that employers look for in India.” It further said, “It is essential that these students pursue their undergraduate courses in English medium. The transition from Telugu medium to English Medium would be easier at the graduation level.” © iStock Twitter saw mixed reactions to this development. The people from the state are divided on the matter with some saying this would wipe out their regional language, while others saying it’s the need of the hour for students to be well versed in English to compete globally. This is totally opposite to the need of the hour. We need to localise the education so that it can reach to the poorest of the poor. English can be thought as second language. — Saket Pandey (@sakpand) June 15, 2021Disrespect for mother tongue.

This does not affect or do away with the mother tongue, but only paves the way for better career opportunities for students outside of the state and globally. © iStock What do you think about the decision?

Yes, it is a desecration of my God and my religion and I’m ashamed.. as shud you be.” © Swara Bhasker Well, the elderly Muslim Sufi Abdul Samad had earlier claimed that he was forced to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’. Police however ruled out any communal angle saying Samad was attacked by six men - Hindus and Muslims - who were unhappy over the amulets he had sold them Police have registered a case and arrested a Pravesh Gujjar - believed to be the main accused - and are still looking for the others#Ghaziabad pic.twitter.com/G1OKeRyZ0o — Daily News India (@DNI_official_TT) June 15, 2021 “Main accused Parvesh was present with Kallu, Poli, Aarif, Adil, and Mushahid when the victim met them in Loni’s Baheta area. The accused and the victim were known to each other as Saifi had sold them an amulet, promising them positive results. The amulet did not work, and the accused beat him up in anger. While two more persons have been arrested, the others will be caught soon,” said Ghaziabad Police in a statement. “All of the accused were known to Saifi as he had sold amulets to many people in the area. First, the victim did not reveal true facts about how he met them, since we found during the investigation that he knew them from before. Second, the details about the assault were also not clear since the issue was about the amulets. The complaint also did not mention any chants of Jai Shri Ram. We have identified eight accused. More arrests will take place,” said Dr. Iraj Raja, SP Rural Ghaziabad. After the police ruled out the communal angle and even the video that went viral was muted, Swara’s tweet has got her into trouble with people bashing her left, right, and centre.

  16. Twenty years ago, Lagaan marked a special place in the world of Indian Cinema on 15th June. The legendary sports drama became a cult movie and is deeply etched in our hearts. From the soulful music by A.R Raman to the elaborate village setting of the movie, Aamir Khan's Lagaan proved to be an unconventional script. The movie also swept our country when it was nominated for The Best Foreign Language Film category at the Oscars. © Instagram/Aamir Khan_FC © Instagram/Aamir Khan_FC Recently, as the movie clocked 20 years of its release, Aamir surprised his fans and said that Lagaan can potentially be remade. As the celebration for the movie's anniversary continued, Aamir spoke to reporters and said that the filmmaker will make it with their 'own' perspective and it will be different. He also expressed his interest in knowing who would play the character of Bhuvan, 'better than him'. © Instagram/Aamir Khan_FC When asked about the movie, he said, "It can be done. But I don’t want to make it because Ashutosh and I have already made it once. It’ll be boring for us to make the same film again. But if another filmmaker wants to make Lagaan, Ashutosh and I will be happy to give him or her the rights. They’ll have their own perspective." He further added, "I don’t believe in being possessive about my films. I would like to see who will do Bhuvan better than me. I would learn something from it. It’ll be a different film, I’d like to see that, it’ll be charming" © Instagram/Aamir Khan_FC The film was highly praised for its convincing storyline and became an iconic film of Hindi Cinema. It was directed by Ashutosh Gowariker and marked Aamir Khan Productions debut. © Instagram/Aamir Khan_FC In one of the videos, posted on Aamir Khan Productions page on Instagram, he also mentioned that shooting for Lagaan was challenging. The movie also featured some other great actors including Gracy Singh, Paul Blackthorne, Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Raghubir Yadav. This was the third movie to get nominated at the Oscars after Mother India and Salaam Bombay. On the work front, Aamir has given some impeccable performance in movies like 3 Idiots, Dangal, Taare Zameen Par etc. He recently wrapped up shooting for Laal Singh Chaddha, an Indian remake of Forrest Gump. He will be seen opposite Kareena Kapoor Khan in this movie. View the full article
  17. Cristiano Ronaldo, arguably the greatest player of all time, has been dominating the world of football for more than a decade now, scoring goals for fun -- be it for his club or country. At 36, Ronaldo still continues to be the focal point of his side’s attacking prowess and a lot of that has to do with his fitness. His ability to impact games on his own is out there for everyone to see, but not many thought he was as influential off the field as he is on it. His removal of two Coca Cola bottles during a pre-match press conference coincided with the leading beverage company losing billions of dollars -- $4 billion to be exact -- in valuation, with company stock prices tumbling by 1.6 per cent. Do NOT put Coca Cola in front of Cristiano Ronaldo This is absolutely brilliant 🤣 pic.twitter.com/bw9FYlTOI4 — Goal (@goal) June 15, 2021 Ronaldo is known for treating his body like a temple which has enabled him to be on top of his game despite being on the latter side of his30s. The Portuguese superstar follows a strict diet and is not a massive fan of carbonated drinks and he let the whole world know about it. Ahead of their Euro 2020 opener against Hungary, Ronaldo attended the press conference along with coach Fernando Santos, where he saw two Coca Cola bottles lying on the table. The Juventus forward took both the bottles and removed them from the frame. Not just that, he took a water bottle and said “Agua!” (Portuguese for water), encouraging people to drink water instead of carbonated drinks.

The drop in share prices caused the company a loss of $4 billion after its valuation went down from $242bn to $238bn. Coca Cola lost $4 billion in value today after the CR7 gesture of removing the bottles went viral. #CocaCola was valued at $242 billion before Ronaldo's gesture and afterwards, it went down to $238 billion.

  19. If there was one character from The Family Man 2 that got us all intrigued is none other than Chellam Sir played by Uday Mahesh. He became the Internet’s darling at the age of 51 and he had no idea that this unprecedented success was coming his way. In Raj and DK's The Family Man 2, he appears whenever Manoj Bajpayee's character Srikant Tiwari is unable to decipher a particular situation and this made Chellam Sir one of the popular characters of the show because he knows everything like Google. View this post on InstagramIt’s a wonderful feeling. I never expected this kind of popularity for this character. Even while dubbing, I had no clue that this is going to be so popular," says Uday Mahesh in an interview with News18. He plays the character of a spy who’s not retired but is extra cautious about his surroundings. There are scenes wherein we see him changing sims often just to protect his identity as a spy. He spoke about how the makers planned his character. He said, “There’s a mystery about the character. Maybe the makers would like to reveal more about Chellam sir later. When I went to the sets for the first time, Raj and DK gave me a brief about the character. They told me that Chellam is a retired, superconscious spy. Whatever they fed me, I performed, so only the writers know the background and what’s between him and Srikant.” View this post on InstagramHe added, “They were very particular about this character’s behaviour like changing phones and sim cards. I think that’s what an experienced spy would do. Also, his spy life is over and he doesn’t want to get involved in daily work. I think that’s why they showed me in a temple living a peaceful life." He is now a rage on social media because of how the makers planned the character and how he exactly portrayed their vision on the screen. A lot of social media users have now been requesting a spin-off on his character. On this, he said, “That would be a great honour.” View this post on InstagramIn fact, Uday had originally auditioned for a character called Deepan, a senior officer in the rebel army. He didn’t get the role and he decided to let go but months later, he was offered the role of Chellam Sir. He decided to go ahead with it as the first season was a hit. Created by Raj and DK, The Family Man 2 also features Manoj Bajpayee, Samantha Akkineni, and Priyamani in important roles. View the full article

  22. Realme is known for launching affordable smartphones and IoT products, often copying Xiaomi’s model when it comes to consumer tech. However, Realme has gone a step forward this time around by launching products that look almost identical to what Apple makes; at least at first glance. Images of Realme’s latest products such as the Realme Book, Realme Pad and a smartwatch were shared online that not only copies Apple’s branding techniques but the product itself. © Realme,Apple When looking at the Realme Book, it’s clear that the Chinese company has lifted the entire aesthetics and branding of the upcoming laptop from Apple’s promotional videos and advertisements. But looking closer it’s clear that Realme has copied the design of the MacBook laptops as well, to the T. There are subtle differences, of course, but not enough to clearly distinguish it from Apple’s products. © Realme The case remains the same with the Realme Pad as well where a promotional image looks identical to what Apple uses for the iPad Pro lineup. It also looks like that company has copied the design of the tablet as well including the camera module which looks awfully similar to the one you can find on the iPad Pro. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla This is not the first time Realme has copied Apple’s designs for its products. The Realme Watch looks very similar to the Apple Watch’s design apart from a few changes such as the digital crown. Realme also copied the AirPods design for its Buds Air TWS earphones that launched a couple of years ago. © Youtube_Realme While Realme is known for affordable products its customers, it comes at a cost of owning something that looks like an Apple rip off. Realme, as a company, has gone leaps and bounds when it comes to the smartphone design department, however, the lack of creativity and original design looks like Realme doesn’t want to come up with something that is their own. Even though the Realme Book was showcased in its global launch event as a prototype, it’s fair to say that laptop is very reminiscent of something that was designed in Cupertino.

  25. Twitter no longer has legal protection in India from prosecution over users’ posts because the company failed to comply with the new IT rules.
