  1. More than five crore people of Bihar came out together on Sunday to form a human chain of around 18000 kilometers in support of environmental conservation and eradication of social evils. The âmaanav shrinkhlaâ or the human chain was formed in response to the call of the Chief Minister Nitish Kumar as part of the âJal-Jeevan-Haryaliâ campaign that focuses on protecting the flora and fauna with its main emphasis on preservation of natural resources and forests. According to Indiatimes, the efforts surpassed the previous records of 2017, wherein people came together to impose a ban on the sale and consumption of alcohol. And also in 2018 when the human chain for formed and the exercise was repeated to support the campaign against dowry and child marriage. Chief Secretary, Deepak Kumar told PTI, "Altogether 5.17 crore people took part in the human chain which was 18,034 kilometers long. The length this year was much longer than 14,000 kilometers of 2018 and 11,000 kilometers of the year before when Bihar first entered record books beating Bangladesh.â "A total of seven helicopters had been pressed into service for capturing aerial images of the event that was bound to go down in the annals of history as a record. Besides, more than 100 drone cameras have clicked photographs which showed the enthusiasm of the state's people, for which we are thankful,â he added. The exercise began at 11:30 am and the people stood around thirty minutes holding hands and CM himself was seen leading the chain at the Gandhi Maidan, Bihar. Hereâs how the event looked- A glimpse of Manav Shrinkhla inside the Main Secretariat campus, Patna. https://t.co/04veD5ks3K pic.twitter.com/B7Ibt4yTG3 â Uday Bhan Singh (@usudaybhan) January 19, 2020 Manav shrinkhla special 𥰠pic.twitter.com/nfnXBySAto â Aniket Kumar (@AniketK31285111) January 19, 2020 #ManavShrinkhala2020 I have also participated in Manav Shrinkhla.

  2. Looks like, the people of the current generation either do not take their lives seriously or consider themselves the OG 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' who can survive literally anything. Which they do actually, in most cases. Anyway, I don't see any other way to justify the viral challenges like the Tide Pod challenge, Kiki challenge or the Ice Bucket challenge that took the world by storm in the last few months. But, just when we thought that people will stop doing crazy things in the name of a challenge, the 'Cereal Challenge' came around and proved us wrong. What is the first thought that came to your mind when you heard of this challenge? Eating as much cereal as possible? Or eating cereal with hands? Whatever it is, this is none of that. This cereal challenge is basically people eating cereal out of each others' mouths. Yes, you read it right and there's nothing NSFW about it. It's actually gross and disgusting. So, in this challenge, one person is the bowl whose mouth is filled with cereal and milk (in whichever order you want) and then the other person takes a spoon and scoops the cereal out from the mouth of that person. WHY? Seriously, WHY will anyone do that? x1 cannot disband they still havent done the cereal challenge. we need to see seungyul do this pic.twitter.com/PqZ1hsPuVc — ð¨ð§ð ð¢ð­ ðð¢ on vacay (@2seungyul) January 15, 2020 As expected, there are more fails in the challenge as people hold it in for a long time and end up choking on it and spitting it out. I am sure these are the same people who like kiwis or bananas on their pizzas. @joshgancas xvibeats #pov you have no bowls at your house so you use your friend as oneð±ð±ð!

  3. What happens when a father abandons his children, his 102 million children? Well, that's what people feel like is happening since PewDiePie has decided to take a break from YouTube. The most subscribed person on the site is going away for who knows how long, but he, of course, couldn't leave without one last goodbye and he did it in the most PewDiePie way possible. He shared his 'final video' and it's an LWIAY, or last week I asked you. Oh, here's one last brofist! © YouTube He does say that he'll be back, but even he doesn't know when that will be. Well, it is a well-deserved break, you can't become the most subscribed person - and beat out an entire music company - if you don't work hard. People understand why he needs to take a break, but everyone still has a lot of feelings. They're already missing him, and are wondering what to do with their lives now. This is so sad. But thanks for awesome year, pewds. Hope we'll see you very soon#pewdiepie pic.twitter.com/VhxmuOviU1 — 6ix9ine (@4206ix9ine) January 15, 2020 He will, probably. Been watching #pewdiepie almost everyday since 2014. Not gonna lie, it's really going to feel different without his daily uploads. 100% gonna miss this crazy dude.

  4. After watching videos of journalists reporting from knee-deep water, fighting on national television, sitting on a donkey while reporting about animal trade, confusing Apple company for the fruit, and giving retakes live just to get everything right, I think it's safe to say that Pakistani media is a global treasure. You can love them, hate them, even laugh at them, but you can never ignore them - that's Pakistani media for you. And journalists like Chand Nawab are 'gems' of reporting who are teaching us something new every single day. While Chand Nawab is still an all-time-favourite for people on both sides of the border, there is another journalist who is now catching up with Nawab's hilarious dedication - Amin Hafeez. Amin Hafeez is the same guy who earlier went viral for interviewing the cattle and then sitting on a donkey while reporting about animal trade. This time around, he took his dedication a notch higher by dressing up as an emperor and giving PTC (Piece To Camera) for Geo News, Lahore. #Pakistan Famous reporter amin hafeez in action #PTC pic.twitter.com/VJe7VQPJWA — Ghulam Abbas Shah (@ghulamabbasshah) January 14, 2020 If you thought this video was funny, here's the final cut and please keep your water or tea/coffee aside because chances are you'll spit it out while watching this. He wasn't just dressed as an emperor, but he even spoke like a king (or so he thought) to make the reporting look more genuine. Here is the final cut... as received from my friend Amin Hafeez himself. This is Cool ð https://t.co/WmNQItByQS pic.twitter.com/DAepMjiS0U — Umashankar Singh à¤à¤®à¤¾à¤¶à¤à¤à¤° सिà¤à¤¹ (@umashankarsingh) January 15, 2020 As expected, people can't stop laughing over this video. In fact, there are a few tweets from Indian journalists who were contemplating about doing something like this. Yes, please! We need such enthusiasm and passion on Indian television. This is going to happen on Indian tv news soon. I can't believe we haven't done it yet https://t.co/M3FWAIKw2h — Nidhi Razdan (@Nidhi) January 14, 2020 Such innovative & brilliant news TV.

  5. There are directors who make thrillers or horror movies, there are directors who make psychological movies, then there is Bong Joon Ho who blows our minds away my mixing the two and creating twisted masterpieces that people start having identity crisis after watching it. South Korean directors especially Bong Joon Ho leave no stone unturned in bending our minds with their trippy plot twists and movies like Oldboy, Train To Busan and The Host is proof the same. Bong Joon Ho is the same guy who worked with Chris Evans in 2013 for the science-fiction thriller 'Snowpiercer'. BTW, he also made The Host and Memories of Murder which are till date counted in some of the best movies ever made. © CJ Entertainment Now the man is all set to create history as his film Parasite recently got nominated for the Oscars 2020. And not just one or two, but this movie has earned six nominations including Best Picture and Best International Film. The other nominations are Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Production Design and best Film Editing. With this news Parasite also, reportedly, became the first South Korean movie in 91 years to get nominated for an Academy Award, and Bong Joon Ho became the first South Korean director to get nominated for this award. © CJ Entertainment But, first let's talk about the movie and why it's making so much buzz on global platform and I promise, my bias and love for Korean movies and K-Pop will not come in the middle of it. Parasite is a psychological thriller about a family who find themselves entangled in a vicious web of greed and class discrimination, which leads them on a murder spree in order to hide the lies they made up in the first place. Trust me, this is not your regular murder mystery and that's exactly what I love about Korean movies - they make you work your brain to figure out what's going to happen until the very end of the movie. However, this isn't the only time it made it big. Earlier, the film became the first Korean film to win the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival 2019. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a critic score of 99% and 8.6 on IMDb. At the 77th Golden Globe Awards, the film won the award for Best Foreign Language Film. Even if you don't believe my words, I am sure you will be intrigued by these reviews. We don't know whether the movie will win an award in any of the nomations, but we do know that it's one of the finest movies ever made and if you are willing to cross the barrier called subtitles, then this one has to be on your binge-watch list.

  6. There's always room for true love. It doesn't matter where it's from, who brings it to you or how many times your heart's been broken. When love comes knocking, you've ought to open the door and welcome it with nothing but warmth. And while you do that for yourself, make room for happiness for others around you too by acknowledging their preferences and choices that they've made. © Instagram When Colin met the love of his life on a dating app, he had no idea what lay before him. When he came across Andrew, while swiping, he could barely make him out from his pictures. It's the conversations he had when they matched that led him to believe Andrew was someone he could look forward to meeting. Andrew's added interest in Indian culture was something that highly impressed Colin. They both live in Chicago and the freedom to express one's sexual preferences or/and sexuality is immense. Even though Colin is Indian, he understood the prejudices and the not-so-alarming discontent that stems from intense conditioning, towards homosexuals men, from where he is. But he knew, if his family accepted him and his partner, he wouldn't have to worry about anyone else. © Instagram Andrew's openness in admitting he really loved the Indian culture and his want to express the fact that he deeply cared for his partner, by making him adrak -wali- chai, made Colin fall more in love with him. They decided to tie the knot, in July last year, at Colin's family home in South India. © Instagram The celebrations were huge and of course very welcoming for Andrew and his family. They had a temple wedding and a church wedding, and Andrew dressed in traditional south Indian wedding attire. Love knows no bounds and has no boundaries, religion, or even sexual preferences. Love is freedom. It's an entity so free, that if it's ever bound, it'll cease to exist. And Andrew and Colin's love is the truest testimony to that! © Instagram They both don't know what the future holds but they know for a fact that love like theirs is unreal, rare and possibly ever-lasting. Here's their story (narrated by Colin) on the Officials Humans Of Bombay's Instagram page: “I was swiping away on a dating app when I came across Andrew. I couldn't figure out anything from his photo. But when we matched, conversation came easily–he loved Indian culture. I was living in Chicago & I missed home, so I could share my excitement for spicy food. But he sounded too good to be true! © Instagram 2 months of texting later, our first date was over a bowl of Ramen! When he invited me over for tea, I was expecting American 'tea', but when I walked into his home, I was hit with the smell of ginger-garlic! He had a steel spice box & when he made me tea, it was adrak chai! I felt comfortable with him–we were so similar in our beliefs. In 9 months, the universe played its role–our rents were coming to an end so we moved in together! I'd even make us dabbas with dal & chawal for lunch! © Instagram The decision to get married was simple–we'd found our soulmates in each other! We flew out to India to tell my parents & they organized a south Indian banana leaf meal to celebrate us. We got married in June 2019 & had a huge celebration–we had a Haldi, Sangeet & a black tie party! After all, you only get married to the love of your life once! Our family & friends helped us organize it all–we were surrounded by so much love. One of the best moments was when my dad raised a toast & said, 'If you have a child love & understand them, if you don't understand them, then love them more.' Our wedding was perfect! But getting to where we are today wasn't easy–I've been sent to therapy to 'get better' & I've had priests pray for my soul. But all of it has led me to him, so it was worth it. © Instagram The first time we went to India after our marriage was so lovely. There was an Indian swagat & we were showered with so much love. Our families accepted us beautifully–my mom always asks about him when I talk to her & the same goes for his family. © Instagram I don't know what the future holds, but that doesn't frighten me–because a love like ours was meant to be. We're going to continue making Bollywood playlists, we'll always come home to adrak-wali-chai… & we'll always fall asleep knowing that when we wake up, 'we' will still be there tomorrow & every single day for the rest of our lives.” © Instagram If I had a penny for negating the fact that true love exists, I'd fill an entire jar, but every time I am cynical about the fact that love indeed does exist, I go back to what Andrew and Colin share and reaffirm my faith in love, and more!

  7. Known to be one of the world's largest tiger habitats, India has long been struggling to keep up the numbers of tigers living within its borders. However, things seem to have taken a turn for the better. According to the 2018 'Status of Tigers in India' report issued by the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) along with Wildlife Institute of India, the adult tiger population in the country has gone up and presently stands at 2,967. © Unsplash That's a significant jump from 2014 when the numbers were 2,226. The good news was shared by Indian Forest Service officer Parveen Kaswan on Twitter, who shared a hreat-warming picture of a tigress walking with her cubs in the forest. This is magical picture. Count the #cubs with #tigress. I know for a reason how few people will be elated after seeing this. Efforts are helping in making this species bounce back from verge of extinction. PC Siddharth Singh. Magical Terai. pic.twitter.com/ZIaMlUAxBj — Parveen Kaswan, IFS (@ParveenKaswan) January 6, 2020 There has been a significant rise in the tiger population in the western part of Uttarakhand's Terai region and this has given animal lovers a lot of hope when it comes to the revival of the species to its former glory. I hope they all live till their old age.. i hope the forest stands strong for them. I hope the human race gives the Earth a chance.

  8. Birds of Prey is less than a month away and even before its release, people are turning into proper DC stans, thanks to the latest trailer. Well, Margot Robbie aka Harley Quinn does have that power, for sure. The new trailer dropped today and it's as colourful and crazy as you would expect it to be. It starts off with our poor lil Harley getting over her breakup with Joker. You should do whatever you want to cope, cry, eat cheese while crying, blow up your ex-boyfriend, it's called self-care. But, after that, she realizes that there are plenty of supervillains who want her dead, of course, and that includes Ewan McGregor's Roman Sionis, a mafia don known as Black Mask. What else is left other than to make a (suicide) squad? She teams up with four other women who are on Black Mask's hit list to take him down: Gotham City cop Renee Montoya, pickpocketing runaway Cassandra Cain, the vigilante the Huntress, and supernaturally screaming lounge singer Black Canary. The best part is obviously at the end when it's revealed that she has a pet hyena named Bruce. I mean, of course Harley Quinn will have a hyena named Bruce. Here's the trailer: The trailer has obviously got everyone very excited for the movie and going by the response, it looks like there'll be a lot of new DC fans after this. It looks great! This sequence is already a serve #BirdsOfPrey pic.twitter.com/52nEAIrq3n — Harley Quinn Updates (@HarleyMovieNews) January 10, 2020 Good enough.

  9. Life can be so unpredictable, and it takes personal experiences to really believe that. So when Swiggy delivery boy Vishal went about taking care of his deliveries, little did he know that one particular delivery to this young man named Nikhil George will change his life and how. Vishal had gone to hand over the delivery to Nikhil when the two started chatting. This eventually led to an exchange that helped the world discover a talented artist who is a “painter by profession and a delivery boy by compulsion”. This is how things went down: This is Vishal. He delivered my Swiggy order today. He's an artist and he is looking for work. Do let me know if you would like to get a painting/wall art commissioned. I can put you in touch with him. Do spread the word and help him out! pic.twitter.com/3HCMaYSuRx — nikhiilist (@nikhiilist) January 6, 2020 No sooner did Nikhil post this update that it caught people's attention on Twitter. People couldn't stop praising Vishal's talent and requests for projects and portraits began pouring in. Bollywood actor-director Pooja Bhatt was one of those who wanted to get in touch with Vishal to get portraits created. Yes please! ð how does one connect with him? — Pooja Bhatt (@PoojaB1972) January 7, 2020 Vishal had joined Swiggy in 2018 to financially support himself and works with the food delivery company on a part-time basis while sparing a large chunk of his day to explore his passion for painting. If he is willing to come to Malda, which we will pay for, we are looking for an artist to paint an Aaganwadi Centre here. Might not get paid as much but would be great exposure for his work. — Naveen Kumar Chandra, IAS (@n_k_chandra) January 7, 2020 According to a HT report, Vishal's Instagram post said, “Hello everybody, I am Vishal. I am a painter by profession and a delivery boy by compulsion. Would love to earn my daily bread thru' my hobby and passion.” He also added that one of his friends helped him create the Instagram account showcase his work and gain more exposure. Hey Nikhil, thank you for taking the time to bring this to our attention ð Talent should always be shared, appreciated and supported. It is great to know that such a talented artist is among us and we would want to do everything possible (cont) https://t.co/0Ch5otPksJ — Swiggy Cares (@SwiggyCares) January 7, 2020 As for Nikhil, this is what he had to say to HT, “After delivering the order, he told me that he's an artist and asked me if I needed any paintings done. I asked him to show me his work. I was impressed. I never expected it to get the response that it did. My phone started buzzing non-stop.” View the full article
  10. If you have been wanting to get a VR headset that doesnât make you look weird, Panasonic may have an answer for you. The Japanese company launched a new VR headset that has a very steampunk vibe and looks less bulky than any VR headset we have seen until now. image 2 Panasonic claims that it is âthe worldâs first HDR UHD virtual reality eyeglassesâ and are the most advanced glasses ever made. The design of the VR headset certainly reminds us of a pair of sunglasses and is very different from the usual VR headset we have seen so far. image 3 The company says that with the growth of 5G, it can expand the uses of the VR glasses. Panasonic said in a press release, âWith the anticipation of the forthcoming full-fledged commercial services of the fifth-generation (5G) mobile communications system, a number of new services using VR glasses are expected to be offered, including for VR sports viewing and engaging virtual travel experiences.â Panasonicâs VR glasses sport a 1.3-inch OLED panel for each eye and can deliver a picture resolution of 2560 x 2560. The VR glasses need to be connected to a PC which means it does not have any on-board processing capabilities. image 1 The current VR glasses weigh around 300g which may sound heavier than usual but Panasonic is going to reduce the weight by half for the final product. Currently, the VR glasses are in the prototype stage which means there is no telling when the final product will be available to purchase. VR headsets are mostly used in virtual experiences and gaming. Currently, there are a plethora of games available on Steam that support VR and in 2020 we expect even more games to release with virtual reality support. Would you buy Panasonicâs less bulky VR glasses? What do you think of the design and how does it compare to VR headsets youâve seen before? Let us know in the comments. View the full article
  11. The whole time people kept cribbing why is Bollywood not speaking up on the current national scenario but when a Bollywood celeb shares his or her opinions, all they receive is severe backlash. And that's exactly what happened in Deepika Padukone's case. Where many A-listers kept silent on CAA or JNU attack, Deepika chose to visit the JNU campus in a show of solidarity with the students. Deepika didn't speak on the issue but her images that are going viral have created a divide in the opinions of people on social media platforms. A certain section of people feels that Deepika's move to meet JNU students was nothing but a cheap publicity stunt and have started to trend #BoycottChhapaak. There are people who feel with Deepika supporting JNU students, she has increased her fan base in Pakistan.

  12. After the brutal and gruesome attack on Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students on the January 5, 2020, the University has been absolutely lull dealing with a plethora of damage, to both human life and university property. On 5th, right after the attacks took place, a swarm of people gathered outside the North Gate of the University to protest against these attacks, in absolute solidarity. Since then various protests rallies and Dharnas have been organised by the university students to stand in solidarity with those who've been injured in the brutal attacks that took place. © Twitter While the government is either quiet or is playing its usual blame game, a lot of civilians are riled up and need pertinent answers to these attacks. Amongst the celebrities, Swara Bhaskar, through an engaging video, urged people to protest and condemn these attacks, while they were going on. After Swara, we now see Deepika Padukone stand in absolute solidarity with the students of JNU and our hearts are truly melting, seeing a prominent celebrity finally take a stand against the attacks on university students. Deepika is currently in Delhi to promote her movie Chhapaak, directed by Meghna Gulzar, which releases this Friday and while the actress was present at the university, she didn't address the crowd, and her decision prompted Aishe Ghosh, the student body president to comment "when you are in position, you should speak". © Twitter Deepika joined the ongoing protest rally against the attacks that took place on students and teachers alike, in JNU. Although she hasn't Tweeted or shared her presence at JNU yet, there have been photographs and videos that have been doing the rounds and garnering momentum. While Deepika was at JNU, the news of her presence spread like wildfire all over Twitter and people were either criticising her for coming there to promote her movie or praising her for showing solidarity. The hashtag #BoycottChhapaak also gained traction. Here are some mixed reviews about her visit to JNU: Glad @deepikapadukone turns up at #JNU ...First from the big bollywood stars league to come out so openly in support of the students...So much respect for her!!! Deepika u r a true star!!!

But the important part is that she showed up, which means she opposes the heinous actions carried out by the masked mob, regardless of her movie coming out this Friday and that's all we need to know or care about. We just hope more celebrities come forth and condemn these brutal attacks on students because their opinion really matters to the younger population today. © Twitter On Sunday, a mob of masked young men and women entered the University, carrying iron rods, sticks and hammers and targeted students from three hostels, within the campus, including a women's hostel. They beat up the students and also destroyed public and personal property. Even though no investigation has started on the matter, the security has been strengthened in and around the University, while the students pray things return back to normal soon.

  13. The incident at Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) has left the nation shook once again. Disturbing videos and photos of the breakout have been surfacing on the internet. A lot of celebrities including Swara Bhasker, Dia Mirza, Sonam Kapoor and many more took to their social media to express their views.

People can go to any extent for 'Netflix and Chill'. Recently, a post shared by a Twitter user, Muralikrishna went viral which read, "Want free Netflix subscription for 6 months?

  15. Who knew that NASA had nothing better to do than record what kind of sound the sun is making? And, you will never guess what they found out; turns out the sun has always been chanting 'Om'! Who would've thought? We all should thank Lt Governor Puducherry and Retd IPS officer Kiran Bedi for sharing this very important, almost unbelievable news with everyone.

You know which one I'm talking about. © Twitter I can't believe some people still fall for stuff like this, but oh well, they do provide us with a lot of entertainment so yes, never change. Give us as many absurd claims that you have so we can troll the hell out of you. Also, the entire 'sun chanting om' thing completely ties up with the movie Koi Mil Gaya in a way and that's a very hilarious realization.

  16. Republic Day is right around the corner, and it's one mega national event that every Indian looks forward to. Apart from the high patriotic furore the day invokes, with a showcase of exceptional folk dances and military prowess of our country, one of the other major highlights of the celebration is the tableau showcase. © Twitter This year too, on New Year's day, the Centre announced that only 16 out of 32 states have been shortlisted for this year's showcase due to “time constraints”. However, the issue now is that three opposition-ruled states, namely, Kerala, West Bengal and Maharashtra, whose tableaux have been rejected and therefore haven't made it to the list are pretty pissed with the development. © Twitter The leaders from the respective states are crying foul over the entire issue and claiming that this is a case of pure discrimination against them. Kerala Law Minister AK Balan was quoted by NDTV on the matter saying, "The Centre becomes berserk whenever they hear the word Kerala or Malayali and added that rejection after the third phase cannot happen "without political interference". © Twitter Another Trinamool Congress MP Saugata Roy said that, "The rejection of the West Bengal tableau for the Republic Day parade is discriminatory. It has been done because West Bengal has been opposing the Centre's CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act) and the NRC (National Register of Citizens) plans.” Not only politicians, even people have a lot to say about it. #Maharashtra rejected by #BJP intentionally. — à¤à¤¿à¤°à¤£ à¤à¤µà¥à¤¹à¤¾à¤£ (@kir_chavan) January 3, 2020 Vengeance?

  17. Yesteryears singer Anuradha Paudwal recently grabbed headlines after a 45-year-old Kerala woman named Karmala claimed to be her biological daughter. Yes, you heard it right. But guess what, the lady in question isn't interested in reuniting with her mother. Instead, she has demanded Rs 50 crore as compensation. According to an Indian Express report, Karmala claims that Anuradha and Arun are her biological parents and they gave her to Ponnachan and Agnes when she was just four-days-old. “About four-five years ago, my foster father Ponnachan confessed on his deathbed that my biological mother was actually Anuradha Paudwal. I was told that I was four days old when I was handed over to my foster parents. Ponnachan, who was posted in the Army in Maharashtra at the time, was friends with Anuradha. Later, he got a transfer to Kerala,” Karmala said. After her father confided in her, Karmala reportedly tried to contact the singer over the phone several times but she found herself blocked after a while. After this incident surfaced on the internet, fans of the singer started to react and called out Karmala for being a fraud and said that she is doing all of this to get money and gain some popularity. Check out the reactions below: Waah Beti Waah.. Matlab maa nahi chaahiye, 50 crore chaahiye #AnuradhaPaudwal #FraudDaughter https://t.co/2uFWMp9p6o — Hindustani Bhau (@hindustanibhaau) January 3, 2020 A 45 year old lady is claiming to be singer Anuradha Paudwal's daughter and asking for a 50 cr compensation. Sounds total fraud. People can say and do anything to extract money! — Savitha (@SavithaKartha) January 3, 2020 Definitely fraud. What was she doing all these years? — DarkKnight (@iamshinerk) January 3, 2020 Gain popularity too — Narindar Kumarð®ð³ (@Narindar01) January 3, 2020 What's in a relation when it's being weighed in monetary terms? At most she could get a declaration under Specific Relief Act like Shekhar Tiwari did. Sometimes you lose a lot when you win such a battle. — Singh (@AdvVikramSingh) January 2, 2020 However, Anuradha has refuted all such baseless claims. In a DNA report, she is quoted saying, “I don't clarify idiotic statements made by a****s! It's below my dignity. Thanks for your concern." Anuradha's spokesperson also said, "This girl (Karmala) is a psycho. Anuradha's daughter Kavita was born in 1974 so Karmala's claims are false. This girl (Karmala) is mentioning Anuradha's husband but she doesn't even know that he passed away a while back and if Karmala is Anuradha's daughter, she should give Anuradha money and not demand 50 crores."

  18. Over the years, we've seen so many heinous crimes committed against food, and honestly, this one might be the most disgusting one yet. Remember that video of someone dipping their pizza in tea before eating? And, even pizza and milk was apparently a thing once. The most recent atroci-tea happened recently when someone was dipping idli in tea. Man, people just love dipping things in tea, I just have one question for them - who hurt you? <blockquote class="reddit-card"><a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/india/comments/eg923k/hello_im_new_to_india_i_hope_im_doing_this_right/" mce_href="https://www.reddit.com/r/india/comments/eg923k/hello_im_new_to_india_i_hope_im_doing_this_right/">Hello, I'm new to India. I hope I'm doing this right.</a> from <a href="http://www.reddit.com/r/india" mce_href="http://www.reddit.com/r/india">r/india</a></blockquote> The same person who recently caused an uproar on Reddit with the idli and tea video took it up a notch and came up with something even more disgusting - chicken tikka and tea. Why? Really, why? <blockquote class="reddit-card" data-card-created="1578050829"><a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/india/comments/ei5hmt/hey_guys_when_i_posted_the_tea_idli_video_uwromit/" mce_href="https://www.reddit.com/r/india/comments/ei5hmt/hey_guys_when_i_posted_the_tea_idli_video_uwromit/">Hey, Guys!

The after-taste was decent.</a> from <a href="http://www.reddit.com/r/india" mce_href="http://www.reddit.com/r/india">r/india</a></blockquote> I'm vegetarian and I'm still offended.

  21. If there's one movie that has been in the headlines of late, it's Ludo by Anurag Basu starring Rajkummar Rao, Aditya Roy Kapur, Abhishek Bachchan, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra, Pankaj Tripathi and Rohit Suresh Saraf in the lead roles. Now, Rajkummar has shared his first look from Ludo and it's trending all over on social media. He has shared two pictures – one in which he looks unrecognisable as he is seen sporting the drag look. In the photos, you can see him flaunting his midriff in a green coloured ghagra choli. His thick long hair and red lips just perfectly blend with the whole look. In the second look, he is seen sitting on a bike sporting a retro look taking us back to the 80s. Check out the look here: View this post on Instagram Happy new year guys. #LUDO ðâ¤ï¸@anuragbasuofficial @bhushankumar @tseries.official A post shared by RajKummar Rao (@rajkummar_rao) on Jan 1, 2020 at 2:11am PST People on social media are talking about his first look and they in fact first thought it's either Kriti Sanon or Alia Bhatt. It's indeed hilarious seeing people compare Raj's look to Kriti and Alia and we wonder what would be their reaction to it.

But, everyone agreed that he nailed the look and he is surely one of the best actors the industry has. Speaking of the film's star cast, Anurag Basu, in an interview with news agency IANS last year, had said, "I am extremely happy to have found this talented new generation cast, though I will trust my old friend Pritam for music as always. It is my pleasure to be working with Bhushan Kumar for my next that is a dark comic anthology." Well, this one would be an interesting watch. View the full article
  22. Geo.tv/FilesISLAMABAD: The common people of Pakistan will drive benefits of economic stability in 2020, Prime Minister Imran Khan's special assistant on information and broadcasting, Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan, said Tuesday. Dr Awan was speaking at a press conference where she said the country's overall political and economic situation was analysed in Tuesday's cabinet meeting. The premier had taken certain decisions keeping in mind the country's priorities at the start of 2019 and informed cabinet members about that. "2020 will be year of development and prosperity for people, 2020 will be year of relief to people, 2020 will be year of common people," she noted. The special assistant said establishing shelters and langars was to show solidarity and sympathy with the poor. There was a Rs6-billion subsidy programme for food items to be introduced in the first week of January 2020, she said, adding that a Financial Assistance Card would also be issued. Medical needs of the people will be fulfilled through the Insaf Health Card, she said, adding that setting up more shelters and langars in cities was PM Imran's aim. Speaking of economic indicators, Dr Awan said current account deficit decreased 73 percent during the ongoing year, while the foreign exchange reserves grew 14 percent and trade balance sunk 40 percent. Imports reduced compared to last year, while exports registered a 4.7 percent gain as opposed to the comparable period. She said the cabinet was told there was a 6.6 percent improvement in services trade balance and a 17-percent growth in tax collection. "We cannot fight the wars of the elite class but have to fight for those who are the 95 percent, the custodians of this country," Dr Awan said. She added that some 100 industries were shut down in the previous government's tenure in Faisalabad, Sialkot, and Gujranwala but the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government ensured they resumed operations again. Further, she said the premier advised cabinet members that there should be more focus on the Public Sector Development Programme (PSDP) and it would be prioritised in 2020, with provinces to report on the funds transferred accordingly on how that money was spent, and the projects initiated. Referring to an in-camera briefing prior to the cabinet meeting, she said the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Ordinance, 2019, and the anti-graft watchdog's laws were discussed and members shared their own suggestions on the matter. The prime minister said there was a roadmap to improvement through the ordinance and reiterated that he had removed the thorns in the business community's way. Investors should step up and invest in the country, which will lead to more jobs, wealth creation, momentum for the wheel of economy, more buying power, and low inflation, he said, according to Dr Awan. The cabinet lauded PM Imran's efforts for occupied Kashmir, demanded all global institutions to take notice of the situation in the Muslim-majority region, and strongly condemned Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's intended move to eliminate minorities through the controversial citizenship law — Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019. The cabinet also approved the appointments of Shahid Saleem Khan and Muhammad Hashim as the Oil and Gas Development Company Limited's (OGDCL) managing director and head of leader of small- and medium-enterprises, respectively.
  23. Some things in life are not to be messed with. Under any circumstances. But unfortunately, some people don't get it and decide to let their adventurous sides get the better of themselves. That's exactly what happened when a Reddit user decided to try a bizarre combo involving idli and tea. Not idli-sambar, idli-podi, idli-chutney but idli dipped in tea. The user shared an 8-second video of the adventure along with the caption, "Hello, I'm new to India. I hope I'm doing this right." Hello, I'm new to India. I hope I'm doing this right. from r/india Err, new or not, the trick to trying new cuisines is to observe how people are eating it, or better yet, simply asking people how it is meant to be eaten! Why would anybody want to put Idli-lovers through such pain is beyond us. Sure enough, people sharing similar sentiments began leaving comments letting the user know just how many people they have managed to unsettle with that 8-second video. From outright anger to passive-aggressive comments, there is a lot people had to say about it. Check out the comments here. View the full article
  24. Oh yes, waking up wrapped around in your cozy blanket, three hours later than your normal wake-up time, staying in bed to finish your favourite web-series instead of doing laundry and deal with the dirty dishes, skipping showers on weekends, wait what? Just me then… hmm. Do you feel that your productivity during the winters goes way down as compared to warmer days? Well, you are not the only one. In fact, research shows that January is the least productive month of the year. But why is it that we feel exhausted or out of energy during the winters? Is it all in our head or do physical factors actually affect us in ways that make us in this season? via GIPHY Turns out there is one thing and one thing alone (outside of our psyche) that is to be blamed for not letting us go to the gym like we used to in summers and that is: the sun. According to physician Dr. Jennifer Ashton, the smaller days and lack of sunlight that the winters bring along with them have a direct impact on a person's mood and the ability to make things happen. Dr. Ashton says that sunlight affects your circadian rhythm or your internal clock. This changes the serotonin levels in your brain. via GIPHY The National Institute of Mental Health (USA) states that the changes in the serotonin levels in your brain leads to various symptoms such as lethargy, losing interest in activities you normally loved to do and yes, the temptation to crawl under a bulky blanket. While productivity goes down for everyone, it is found that people working from 9-5 get affected the most. When they leave for work in the morning, the sun isn't out yet and on their way back, it has already set. So they are missing out on all the goodness of serotonin that the sun has to offer. via GIPHY And hence as the time passes, and your serotonin levels continue to go down and your become less and less productive. This seasonal lapse in productivity is known as seasonal affective disorder (SAD). “We have a tendency to want to blame everything on psychological causes,” Dr. Norman Rosenthal, one of the experts who named the condition, told The New York Times. “We overlook the obvious, which is that it's dark as pea soup outside. That's why I think [SAD] goes unrecognized — it's right in front of our noses.” Thankfully, there are some simple yet effective ways to overcome SAD. All you need to do consciously take care of yourself. The reason behind such laziness simply comes from not getting enough sunlight. Head out for a brief walk after lunch or stand next to the window for five minutes. via GIPHY The Independent also suggests maintaining a good sleep cycle and trying to stick to the one that you have during summers. This helps maintain that internal clock we were talking about before. It is normal to feel a bit more lazy during the winters as compared to the months of May, June and July. All you need to do is keep reminding yourself of why it is that you started doing something. Self-realisation is the biggest motivation factor that you need to skyrocket your productivity right up.

  25. Former legspinner Danish Kaneria on Saturday clarified that he was never discriminated against on the basis of religion during his playing career for Pakistan, but did claim that he was treated differently by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) after he was found guilty in a spot-fixing scandal. Kaneria made headlines this week after former teammate Shoaib Akhtar said that the leggie was discriminated by some Muslim members of the Pakistani cricket team because of his Hindu faith. The spinner had later backed Akhtar’s explosive claim, and thanked him for “telling the truth to the world”. However, following public backlash, Kaneria has had a change of hearts, as he detailed in a series of tweets earlier today that he has a bone to pick with the authorities and not the public. “The people of Pakistan never discriminated against me on the basis of religion,” he said. Kaneria did say though that he did not get any support from the PCB or the Government of Pakistan after being banned — unlike “other players in similar situation”. Though he did not name names, Kaneria’s gripe stems from the PCB’s handling of Mohammad Amir and Sharjeel Khan — both of whom were found guilty in separate spot-fixing scandals. Amir admitted his guilt, served his time and has since largely been forgiven and become a regular fixture of the national team. Sharjeel, too, has completed his rehab and been picked by the Karachi Kings for the Pakistan Super League 2020, after which a national recall could also be on the cards. Having said that, it took Kaneria — banned for life by the England and Wales Cricket Board in 2012 — six years to admit his guilt in the spot-fixing scandal of 2009. By that time, he had lost his cricketing utility for the national team and the PCB. Kaneria’s case has similarities to that of former Pakistan captain Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif, both of whom have complained of being treated differently than Amir.
