  1. Honoured with the name, 'Hitman', Indian cricket team's opener, Rohit Gurunath Sharma is on top of the cricketing world for all the right reasons. Currently donned with the duty to lead the Men in Blue into international series in the absence of Virat Kohli, Sharma is also one of the most decorated batsmen of our nation. But things were not always so rosy and exciting for the now 32-year-old athlete. Coming from humble beginnings, 'Shaana', as Yuvraj Singh likes to call him, was just a kid with a dream a couple of decades ago. His family did not have the silver to make life easier for the righty but the will to see him make it big internationally, could be found in abundance. © Rohit Sharma Hailing from Nagpur, Rohit's father, Gurunath Sharma, used to work as a caretaker of a transport firm storehouse in Mumbai and could only manage to afford a one-room apartment for the entire family to reside in. However, the worst was yet to come. After losing his job at the storehouse, his father found it extremely difficult to provide food and shelter to the little boy and decided to send him away to his grandparents and uncles' place in Borivali at the tender age of 10. Even though they were unable to see their child daily, they made it a point to visit him at least once every week. Appreciating his unshaken passion for the game of cricket, his parents decided to help him make a career in the sport and wanted to get him in a cricket academy by all means necessary. Pooling in Rs. 50 his parents, uncles and their friends collected enough funds to help him get through the academy in 1999. At the time, Sharma used to be a bowling all-rounder with expertise in off-spin but his coach, Dinesh Lad, at the academy advised him to focus more on his talents with the bat. He even managed to provide Rohit with a four-year scholarship at Swami Vivekananda International School, an institution ten-times better than where he used to go before. Switching schools also allowed the young and talented cricketer work harder to reach his goals. © Rohit Sharma As for someone who used to approach the crease as an 8th or 9th down to opening for Lad's team at the Inter-School tournament and scoring a total of 120 runs on his debut had to be special and the rest, as they say, is history. Having his fair share of dips in form, Sharma has had a rollercoaster career before he showed his ability to shine on the brightest of stages in the past few years and it seems as if the 32-year-oldie has built enough faith amongst the BCCI selection committee to make him a “sure thing” for the upcoming ICC World Cup. Sharma, who belongs to the A+ category of pay grade for Team India, was also blessed with a daughter earlier this year and this was probably the best present he could have asked for.
  2. After making people wait for almost two years, the final season of 'Game Of Thrones' is finally here and looks like no one is as excited about the show as us. But, it's the Indian parents who are the happiest today. Why? Because what they or the alarm clocks couldn't do for years, the makers of 'GOT' did it in a single day - make people wake up at 5 AM. © HBO Until last week, people were looking for ways to deal with Monday blues and finding excuses to sleep a few more minutes. But, today things have changed and the only blue people are concerned about are the Night King's eyes. © HBO Turns out Indians are super excited to watch the first episode of season 8, but for free. So, instead of logging into Hotstar premium, they were busy looking for free alternatives. For that most people woke up around 5 AM to try downloading the episode for free from Torrent. © Quartz According to a report in Quartz, between 5 AM and 9 AM, Google Trends showed that 'Torrent file' was a more popular keyword than 'Hotstar' in India. © Quartz In fact, torrent sites like 'DIRECTV' and its misspelling 'direct tv' were among the rising trends. Honestly, the fact that people are looking for free alternatives to watch the episode does not surprise me as much as the fact that they woke up at 5 AM to do it. I mean, people across the country were setting alarm for 5 AM and 6:30 AM, not to catch an early morning flight or study for exams, but to watch the first episode of 'Game Of Thrones' season 8. And not just any day, a Monday. If you think I am exaggerating and the insane craze is a big lie, check out the tweets here where people are posting screenshots of alarms. The alarm is set #ForTheThrone #GameofThrones @GameOfThrones @HotstarPremium pic.twitter.com/GFE4Aegblp — Pavan Advani (@pavankoomar) April 14, 2019 Alarm set!!

  3. Growing up as kids, we all had our obsession with some or the other thing, right? For some, say, it's video games, while for others it could have been something as small a thing as collecting stamps. Well, for a Michigan man dubbed Charlie, who's currently suing his parents, it's porn. Why is Charlie suing his parents? Well, it's because they got rid of his 'valuable' porn collection which he estimates was worth $29,000 (roughly over Rs. 20 Lakhs). © Reuters Yes, a 40-year old man has filed a lawsuit in federal court in Michigan against his parents who threw out 12 boxes filled with his porn videos and magazines. According to FOX 17, it all started when Charlie moved out of his parent's house in Grand Haven after going through a divorce. He says that when he moved out, his parents delivered his things to his new home in Indiana, except for the 12 boxes of pornographic films and magazines. Upon confronting, his parents agreed that they dumped the porn, which included titles such as 'Frisky Business' and 'Big Bad Grannys'. He was clearly pissed about his collection getting destroyed. He called the Ottawa County Sheriff's Office to file a police report, estimating the collection at $28,940. © Unsplash The prosecutors are said to have decided against filing charges against his parents. however, Charlie is still suing his parents for $86,822 in damages. Charlie says some of the videos are extremely valuable because they aren't being distributed anymore.
  4. Epic Games Fortnite has become one of the biggest games in the world over the past couple of years. But as popular as the game is, there are a lot of people who think that the world would be a better place without 'Fortnite'. And guess who has decided to join them? The Duke of Sussex. While speaking at an event at the YMCA in London in length about addictive games and social media, Price Harry spoke out against the popular video game Fortnite and its addiction. Well, he may not be a dad yet, but he did sound like one when he said the game “shouldn't be allowed”. © MensXP “Where is the benefit of having it in your household? It's created to addict, an addiction to keep you in front of a computer for as long as possible. It's so irresponsible.”, he said. Adding on to his point, he noted that the game is bad for mental health and it should be banned. Additionally, Harry also expressed similar concerns about social media in general. He said it is “more addictive than alcohol and drugs.” © Yahoo Epic Games hasn't responded to Prince Harry's comment yet, but it's worth pointing out that he isn't the only one who has shared concerns about additive video games. Last year, the World Health Organization added “gaming disorder” as a mental condition. And we don't really have to tell you about gaming, especially, PUBG Mobile addiction fiasco in India, right?
  5. Everyone has been waiting with bated breath for the return of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, since his return back to Indian soil was promised by the Pakistan Prime Minister, Imran Khan. The peace gesture has made a big impact on the current situation between the two countries and we hope the tension slowly dies away with the very kind and amicable step taken by Pakistan towards solidifying positive ties between India and Pakistan. (c)Twitter In the wake of the current tensions, while I write this, Wing Commander Abhinandan would have already reached the Wagah Border, ready to come back home to his parents who're frantically waiting to see him. But before his parents made their way to Amritsar to receive their son, they were on an Indigo flight from Chennai to Delhi and something wonderful happened in-flight! Abhinandan's parents were recognised by the passengers who'd boarded the flight with them and there was nothing less than ecstatic cheering and benevolent greetings throughout the trip, for them. (c)Twitter A video on social media has gone viral showing the passengers cheering and clapping for the parents. विà¤à¤ à¤à¤®à¤¾à¤à¤¡à¤° à¤à¤­à¤¿à¤¨à¤à¤¦à¤¨ à¤à¥ माता पिता à¤à¤¬ दिलà¥à¤²à¥ पहà¥à¤à¤à¥ तॠफà¥à¤²à¤¾à¤à¤ मà¥à¤ मà¥à¤à¥à¤¦ यातà¥à¤°à¤¿à¤¯à¥à¤ नà¥à¤à¤¿à¤¯à¤¾ तालियà¥à¤ सॠसà¥à¤µà¤¾à¤à¤¤...ðð pic.twitter.com/N9j8EskACs — Ravi Bhadoria रवि भदà¥à¤°à¤¿à¤¯à¤¾(@ravibhadoria) 1 March 2019 (c)Twitter The parents made their way to Amritsar from Delhi, once the flight landed. The Wing Commander's father Retd Air Marshal S Varthaman is a well-respected officer and his mother Shobha Varthaman is a doctor. This is surely a day of relief and pride for the parents of a courageous and valorous Wing Commander.

  7. Bollywood, as an industry, is dominated by powerful filmi families who have been a part of Bollywood for a long time, including those who have been around since the time of its inception in 1899. So, no matter which side we are on when it comes to nepotism, there is no denying that most star kids do possess the skills and have proved themselves time and again, regardless of the killer start they got to their careers when they started out. However, this got us thinking about these star kids making their on-screen debuts when it comes to sharing the screen-space with either or both of their parents. With the release of 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga' last Friday, we saw Sonam and Anil Kapoor share the screen together, and we must say that despite Sonam's acting skills, it was rather refreshing to watch the father-daughter duo in action on the big screen. The kind of dynamics they share off-screen found its way in front of the camera, and we have to admit we liked what we saw. © Vinod Chopra Films And surely this isn't the first time when Bollywood actors have shared screen space with their parents and rocked the screen together. We bring you 5 other Bollywood A-listers who have acted with their parents, and given us an entertaining joyride: 1. Amitabh Bachchan & Abhishek Bachchan © Mad Entertainment Their journey together as AB Sr. and AB Jr. started with 'Bunty Aur Babli' in 2005, which was followed by 'Sarkar', 'Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna' and then 'Paa' in 2009, with a special appearance in 'Shootout At Lokhandwala' as well. 2. Rishi, Neetu & Ranbir Kapoor © Movie Temple Productions When 'Besharam' released in 2013, its USP was that the Kapoors were all going to share the screen together as a family on-screen too. Though the film didn't do that well commercially, it was great to see the family together on-screen. 3. Soni Razdan & Alia Bhatt © Junglee Pictures 'Raazi' saw the mother and daughter come together in front of the camera, and we loved to see them bring their relationship on-screen as much as we love them off it. 4. Pankaj Kapoor & Shahid Kapoor © Junglee Pictures 'Shaandaar' was almost a family reunion on-screen for the Kapoors with Pankaj, Shahid and Sanah Kapoor coming together for this movie. 5. Dharmendra, Sunny & Bobby Deol © Phantom Films This father-and-son Jodi has entertained us one too many times, and we loved watching them make us laugh and cry with their antics in 'Yamla Pagla Deewana', 'Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se' and 'Apne'.
  8. Sometimes, you really just can't help the expressions you make, and it happens even more when you're literally wrestling with someone. Then, the expression can be so funny that it turns you into a meme. That's exactly what happened to Brock Lesnar during a match on Sunday. During the WWE Royal Rumble match, Lesnar defeated his opponent Finn Balor via submission after just under nine minutes in the middle of the ring using his Kimura lock and a meme was born. His victory was also a victory for the internet as he had the most hilarious expression. When @BrockLesnar gets into THIS mode, there's no chance.#RoyalRumble #UniversalTitle pic.twitter.com/obA3DNYVi1 — WWE Universe (@WWEUniverse) January 28, 2019 Yep, that one. At this point, I would honestly be disappointed if that didn't become a meme, but obviously, everyone came through. Here are the best ones: I can feel it.

The greatest pro wrestling gif in the history of gifs, courtesy of Brock Lesnar. #RoyalRumble pic.twitter.com/B2f4FRiJDj — R.Dream (@WWERDream) January 28, 2019 Sure. When the alarm clock hits after you watched 500 hours of #WWE the night before. #RoyalRumble pic.twitter.com/aftCIDL5LY — Scott Fishman (@smFISHMAN) January 28, 2019 You're going to die.

  9. We all, as adults, at some point, move out of our parents' house. People who are living alone will understand how stressful it gets when your parents announce their annual and sometimes sudden visit. From fake office trips to a friend's wedding to what not, people have often come up with interesting excuses to stop their parents from coming home. But, what is the wildest thing you've done to stop them? Whatever it is, it cannot top this 23-year-old guy from France who made a hoax bomb threat, just because he didn't want his parents to come home. Pexels This student's parents were coming to see him, in a flight from Lyon to Rennes in France. Reportedly, he anonymously made a hoax call regarding the bomb, which caused the flight to turn around shortly after the take-off. His parents boarded the EasyJet flight, EZY4319 on January 18. Wikimedia The public prosecutor of Rennes said in a statement, "the author of the facts has been identified." The dude has been held in custody and charged with "false news compromising the safety of an aircraft in flight." If the guy is prosecuted, he could end up facing up to five years in jail and might get slapped with a fine of 75,000 euro (Rs. 60 lakh approx.) Pexels Seriously, what was he hiding in his house or what could have possibly happened between him and his parents that he took this extreme step to stop them?
  10. There are only two things Chris Evans does on Twitter - make fun of or call out US President Donald Trump and his incompetency and the other thing is talking about his adorable dog, sharing pictures of his dog and just making everyone fall more in love with him and his dog. It really is the most wholesome account on the website and it's great to see how much Chris loves his doggo. Captain America himself is almost like a dog and no wonder there's an entire account dedicated to comparing Chris and several golden retrievers, proving he's also a good pupper. Coming back to Chris' account, he's shared many pictures and videos of Dodger; so we compiled everything we could find to make everyone's day better. Enjoy because Chris and Dodger deserve all the love! Who will? Dodger has a lion that he loves dearly. He brings it to bed every single night. Yesterday, my buddy Josh bought him a new lion for Xmas. It immediately caused competition and uncertainty. Dodger was torn. The big question was who would get the highly coveted bedtime invite? ðð¦ pic.twitter.com/yrb9c4gDea — Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) December 24, 2018 It's still the greatest photo series of all time.

  11. If you are one of the 35.7 million followers of Amitabh Bachchan on Twitter, then you will know that Big B is one of the most loved and celebrated superstars on social media. Be it reminding celebrities that they forgot to reply to his text or just casually talking about his daily struggles, the content on Sr. Bachchan's social media accounts are pure gold. Just like his latest post on his struggle with his smartphone. Instagram Big B today took to Twitter to seek help from his followers when his Samsung Galaxy S9 stopped functioning. He wrote, "HELP !! Samsung S9 not functioning .. Samsung logo is on the front screen, and is blinking again and again .. nothing else happens .. changed it .. let it be .. tried to close it does not close either ..HELP ... someone please guide me as to what I should de(sic)". T 3024 - HELP !! Samsung S9 not functioning ..

HELP ... someone please guide me as to what I should de .. — Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) December 12, 2018 Well, given that it's Bollywood's 'Shehenshah' asking for help, people on Twitter came together to help him out in their own hilarious style. While some came up with genuine solutions, others were quick to point out how he is the brand ambassador of OnePlus 6T and uses a Samsung smartphone. What have we done to deserve a savage platform like Twitter? Oh no! It is blinking because someone very special is holding it and is loving it! So don't do anything, just let it be.

  12. One of mankind's biggest concern at this point of civilisation is perhaps the all-pervasive nature of adulteration that can be found in our daily food items, such as fruits, veggies, grains and pulses, spices, cooking oil and much, much more. A recent study by Public Health Foundation in India showed that almost 80 percent of premature deaths result from the intake of contaminated food and water. This simply goes on to show that food adulteration in our country is rampant. © MensXP While most of us are aware of this reality, very few of us are trying to actively change our food habits, for a better chance at life. Now, while this attitude is considered “acceptable” when we are dealing with our own self, the same cannot be said for stance on the issue when young kids are involved. During such situations, every parent wants the best and safest option for their kids, without fail. Yet, with the decay running deeper than anticipated, such safe options are pretty difficult to come by. All such parents are met with in their search for healthy food options for their children are, adulterated versions of kids food. As disappointing as that may sound, the same experience propelled first-time parents Umang Bhattacharyya and Shauravi Malik to take matters into their own hands, in order to ensure that their kids, as much as others', get the best quality, healthy food in the market. © MensXP This reason was also enough to pushed co-founders and mothers Shauravi Malik and Meghna Narayan to quit their fancy jobs at global enterprises such as J.P. Morgan and McKinsey respectively, to pursue this cause which was close to their hearts, more vigorously on a personal level. It was finally in October 2016 when 'Slurrp Farm' was born out of this need to create a healthy, food range for kids. This first step was followed by something in the likes of, “My mum used to force a Ragi drink down my throat, I wish we could come up with a yummy way to eat Ragi”. “I used to love cheese-lings – why can't we bake them in a tasty way”. © MensXP Thus began their journey, and since that initial step has today taken the shape of 12 innovative, and tasty products and four product ranges that cover snack and breakfast food for children. With 20 product innovations already in the pipeline, they have cereals, cookies, pancakes and dosas. As for the snacks range they have 3 superb flavours available - chocolate, tangy tomato and cheese & herbs. However, getting here hasn't been easy. Leaving their well paying jobs and taking a big plunge with no endgame in sight, came with its own set of struggles. Top that up with naysayers who questioned their every move, making it all the more difficult for them charge through with their plans. But, all three co-founders had their goals in sight and their hearts in the right place, and them helped them to power through all the hiccups along the way. © MensXP Cut to this day, 40 percent of their customers are repeat customers. At the very base of it all lies their company philosophy to build a honest company, and honest products that can earn them trust and credibility. Things seem to be looking up for the trio and their work-child, because major expansion plans have been laid out for the next couple of months. From being full time employees with fancy paychecks, to leaving it all behind in order to build their dream company, Umang, Shauravi and Meghna have come a long way, and the journey has been more than fulfilling for them.

  13. Karan Johar and Kajol have been close friends for years, but unfortunately their friendship turned sour over the release of 'Shivaay' and 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'. But, looks like both of them have moved over that fallout and rekindled their friendship, as they set the couch on fire with their funny banter on last night's episode of 'Koffee With Karan 6'. In fact, Karan even jokes about how he wants to become friends with Ajay. Koffee tonight!!!!!!! @ajaydevgn @KajolAtUN @hotstartweets @StarWorldIndia pic.twitter.com/2gl5q8QDPF — Karan Johar (@karanjohar) December 2, 2018 The 'Koffee' couch is known to give life to new friendships and end old feuds, and the camaraderie between this trio only reiterates the same. So, without further ado, let's take a look at how Kajol, Ajay and Karan brought the whole house down with their amazing chemistry and sharing the hilarious struggle of being a parent. Kajol-Ajay's Kids Can't Believe Their Parents Are Superstars Ajay and Kajol are two of the biggest and popular names in Bollywood, but their son Yug doesn't think so. In the episode Kajol revealed how Yug once asked her, "Are you really a star? Are you really that important?" Kajol who was baffled at this could only laugh and say "Yes, I guess I am." Star World In fact, Ajay recalled the time when Nysa took him by surprise when she recognised Sachin Tendulkar on a billboard. When Ajay asked him what he did for a living, she said "Yes! He sells biscuits!" Well, she isn't wrong, is she? Kajol Is A Selfie Addict And Ajay Once Fought With Her Over It It's the age of social media and almost everyone is addicted to taking selfies, including our celebrities. At least, we know Kajol is. In the episode, Ajay revealed that Kajol is a selfie addict and how he had a fight with her over clicking selfies and perfecting them. View this post on Instagram @kajol gets candid while @ajaydevgn stirs up the hornet's nest next Sunday on #KoffeeWithKaran! #KoffeeWithAjay #KoffeeWithKajol A post shared by Star World (@starworldindia) on Nov 25, 2018 at 8:38am PST Ajay mentioned how Kajol takes all the time to click the selfies and then take another three hours to only edit it before posting it on social media. We can totally relate to her on this one. In Kajol's defence, she said "It's not just me. Nysa loves it too!" Kajol Thinks Ajay Is A 'Hysterical Parent' Being a star kid is tough, but being a celebrity parent is tougher and no one can understand this better than Karan, Kajol and Ajay. During the episode, Karan asked the couple about their experience of handling a teenager (since Nysa is 15 now). Kajol reveals that among the two Ajay is the 'excessive' and a 'hysterical parent' who sits by the door and waits for his daughter to come home. In fact, Ajay even takes a report of where she's going, who she's going with and what they're going to do there. Star World Kajol Does Not Spend Money On Expensive Stuff Or Designer Label The only difference between a commoner and a celebrity is that money is the last concern on their mind when it comes to shopping. From designer labels to luxurious items, you think of it and chances are that the celebrities already have it stocked in their wardrobe.

Karan Johar says that he has never seen Kajol flaunt any designer labels, except for some strange brands that she picks up from Santacruz market. Ajay too agrees with him and adds, "she's moved to online," and that he now sees 7 to 8 parcels ranging from Rs. 500 to Rs. 1200 coming in everyday, with her saying "See how much this is for, only 600 rupees". Star World Kajol then explains, "I'd rather put my money in a FD, honestly rather than spending it on something really really expensive that has no bloody returns." Well, she does make sense. 'Koffee With Karan 6' airs on Star World every sunday at 9pm.
  14. Some of our most fond memories in life are related to our childhood, as those were the most carefree and fun-filled days of our lives. Sure, the adult “fun” is all good, but we all know how long-lasting that can be, so let's not go there and hurt our feelings any further. View this post on Instagram Lazy Sunday A post shared by Aamir Khan (@_aamirkhan) on Sep 1, 2018 at 9:30pm PDT However, apart from all the fun and games that we lived through back in the day, there are a few very intricate aspects of our childhood that we categorically miss - the most entertaining cartoon shows and the greatest comic binges we got to enjoy as children. Fine, some of us have not let THAT kid in us die yet. © Instagram But talking of comics, one of the most popular series we laid our hands on has to be 'Asterix'! One of the most engaging comic characters, we could never have enough of Asterix with Obelix by his side, and Dogmatix keeping up his antics besides a lot more. But imagine two of the most important people in your life coming together to bring your favourite characters to life, that would be so cool and fun, to say the least. Well, Aamir Khan and wife Kiran Rao did exactly that for their son's pre-birthday bash - the family dressed up like the characters from 'Asterix' and boy, did they nail it or what! © Instagram With Azad dressed up as Asterix, Aamir as Obelix and Kiran as Getafix, the family was more than perfect to look at - and managed to bring back so many happy memories from our childhood. © Instagram The images were shared on Instagram by Aamir Khan, and does the party seem lit and happening! We totally love our parents, and are more than grateful for everything they have done for us and blessed us with, yet, wouldn't it be cool to have your parents dress-up as your favourite comic characters and host a themed party? Guess we are too old for that, but one can always wish. No?
  15. Ameesha Patel and Akshaye Khanna might be in some cinema oblivion right now but once upon a time, they did some great work and charmed us with their good looks on the big screen (they're still good looking TBH). One particular super hit that they were part of together was 'Humraaz' and the song 'Bardasht Nahi Kar Sakta' was a massive hit. So since Bollywood has been a huge fan of revamping old hits, it does not really come as a surprise that the groovy song is being remade. It will be a part of the Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao starrer 'Mental Hai Kya' and will be recreated by Tanishk Bagchi. © Balaji Motion Pictures The question is 'why'? Tanishk is super talented and while we love his music, we want to know why change the memories attached to this song as well? Also, at least they should recreate it with Ameesha Patel and Akshaye Khanna! Is that too much to ask for? I will not accept it unless it features @ameesha_patel and Akshay Khanna. pic.twitter.com/3nFWUESIkR — Aayushi Bhargava (@AreUShe) November 20, 2018 Clearly, people are not happy with this development. So they are on a mission to ruin every freakin song from 10-20 years ago. — Desi Gooner (@Sahil_Adhikaari) November 20, 2018 Well, the song could turn out great eventually and who knows, it also might also end up on our play list, but right now, the idea of watching it again without the garish orange clothing, the amazing voice of KK and Ameesha and Akshay grooving intensely to "aaeeaaaooooo", seems outlandish. Basically, the remake of 'Bardasht' is something we don't want to 'bardasht' at all!
  16. “I am what I am, so take me as I am” - The Chief Justice of India Dear mom and dad, Yesterday, the Supreme Court of India came out with a verdict that has, for once and for all, struck down the archaic law that made someone like me, a criminal. In a landmark ruling, it scrapped the outdated section 377 that criminalised homosexuality and made it a punishable offense. It's a big time for equality in India, one that ushers in what is certain to be a more progressive and just era championing freedom and equality. It's also a cause for celebration and self-expression, without any fears of legal persecution. I am sure yesterday was a special day for countless LGBT folks who have lived fearfully under the shadows of homophobia and discrimination, as well as those who have been subjected to harassment and bullying simply because of who they are. © Pexels My story is a bit different. I too have been bullied because of my sexuality, especially in a convent 'all-boys' school where being feminine pretty much gave others a license to bully you. But I've had one thing going for me that has been a pillar of strength and support, something which I understand all-too-well I've been privileged to receive - your unconditional love and support. I came out to you both at a relatively younger age - I was all of sixteen - and I still remember the sense of dread and anxiety that had engulfed me. After all, being your only son, I had this notion that I was somehow about to disappoint you or let you down. Till today, coming out to you is possibly the bravest thing I've ever done. © Unsplash But to my immense joy and relief, your reaction was anything but disappointing. You hugged me, embraced me and made sure I knew that there was nothing wrong with me, that I was perfect the way I was and that I had nothing to be ashamed of. I only wish every LGBTQ kid in the world gets to hear those same words when they come out of the closet, as I got to hear from you both. Mom, you have been, without question, my biggest cheerleader in the world. Just like the loving and accepting Kirron Kher in Dostana's second-half (but with the histrionics slightly toned down), you started talking about potential son-in-laws and how crazy my wedding would be. Even yesterday, when the news of Section 377 being scrapped broke, you were the first person to call me and were even more enthusiastic about the verdict than I was. Needless to say, I couldn't be more grateful for having you in my life. Dad, you too were incredibly supporting and accepting, though the ways you showed it were more subtle. Those nonchalant conversations about whoever I settle down with meeting your standards or about how adopting a kid or having one via surrogacy is no different than (or any less special) than the “normal” way, reflected your love and support in the best way possible. I may have lost you earlier this year, but your words will always stay with me. So dad, wherever you may be, I just wish that you were got to see all of the rainbows that engulfed our nation, the pride and acceptance that filled the air, and the energy of equality that can be sensed by one and all. © Reuters I understand that when it comes to acceptance of homosexuality, the embracing, loving and nurturing nature of my parents is a rarity - in fact a majority of the LGBT community hasn't been as lucky. Having you both loving and embracing me even before section 377 was scrapped was a privilege, and it's outright depressing to realise not all LGBT kids get to have that. © Pexels So in closing, I want to say something to the parents of all the LGBTQ people out there who might be reading this. Yesterday was a big day for your children, but the advancement of equal rights has only just begun. There are still lots of battles that need to be won (marriage equality and adoption rights come to mind), and your kids will NEED your unconditional love and support to get through those battles. With you firmly standing in their corner, nothing can bring them down. Trust me, I speak from experience. With love, A 'legal' Indian citizen
  17. Do you remember your first job interview? That nervousness of walking inside the room where employers are eagerly waiting to scan and judge you on the basis of your CV. In fact, most of us lost the game solely because someone else's CV was stronger than ours. Writing an impressive resume is one of the hardest steps in the quest to get a job. You probably had to take advice from your parents or elder siblings on where to start and efficiently list down your skills, qualifications and achievements. While most of us got the best suggestions to ace our resume game, I am sure a certain 16-year-old Lauren Moore from North Yorkshire is currently regretting (or maybe not) her decision to let her dad write her resume. Lauren Moore/ Twitter The CV looked like a generic one with everything mentioned such as achievements, grades, skills and experience; but it was the content inside that was pure gold. He mentioned 'giving out all clients' information to fraudsters', 'digging holes looking for gold', 'browsing Facebook' and 'f**king everything up' as responsibilities and 'lazy', 'late', 'rude' and 'couldn't give a f**k' as skills and personal qualities. Lauren Moore/ Twitter At least now we know who is not getting a job anytime soon. Lauren posted this hilarious CV on social media with the caption, "Remind me not to let my dad do my CV for me." Well, it's too late Lauren! And this ingenious dad made sure not to miss out on the most important part of the CV - reference. While we list our seniors or former colleagues, he listed a probation officer called Ben Dover and wrote, "Don't contact him, he doesn't give a f**k either." Lauren Moore/ Twitter Her friends and everyone else who read this masterpiece was left in splits and we're sure you too won't be able to hold your laughter as well, once you take a look at the incredible CV. So folks, the next time your parents tell you, "You cannot fool us! We know everything about you," do not take those words lightly. Who knows, they might have a CV ready for you as well.
  18. Meeting your partner's parents can be harrowing, especially if it's for the first time. Plus, if you want them to approve of you (of course you do), leaving a good first impression is a prerequisite. Conversations come later, as the first step to ensure that they are bowled over by how charming and well-behaved (!) you are, is by choosing your outfit sagaciously. Wear something that will bowl them over, even before you've uttered a word. Varun Dhawan just happened to have stepped out in an outfit exactly like that, which checks all of those checklists. Take a look: © Viral Bhayani You know what parents want to know? That you're not lazy and don't shy away from putting in effort, in any area whatsoever. A three-piece suit screams of class, and the fact that you consciously 'make an effort'. Plus, it is very sophisticated. You just can't go wrong with it. © Viral Bhayani Choose a vibrant colour, preferably, to portray that you're sophisticated, but definitely not stuck up or dull. Flexibility is an extremely important trait, and parents want that in a probable match for their child. The bright royal blue Varun is wearing is perfect for that. © Viral Bhayani Make sure the fit is good. It has to be relaxed, definitely not tight, but also looking like it was tailored just for you. You'll end up looking tacky if it's tight, not to mention the awkwardness resulting from the lack of movement. Make the pants tapered, and they can be cropped at the ankle, but not too much. © Viral Bhayani When it comes to what to wear underneath, choose a solid colour shirt that is bright and happy - preferably white, or the lightest shades of pink or periwinkle blue or lavender. These are the perfect colours for this occasion. © Viral Bhayani When it comes to accessories, keep it absolutely minimal (with perhaps a pocket square if you want to). Go for brogues or monkstraps, and most importantly, a huge chunk of self-confidence to boot. All the best!
