  1. In January, there were rumours that Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir is joining politics. Back then, he clarified all those rumours saying that there's no truth in it. There have been speculative stories that I am joining politics. Please allow me to clarify that there's no truth in this. At the moment, I am merely a retired cricketer who like all of you is waiting for India's series win in Australia. — Gautam Gambhir (@GautamGambhir) January 3, 2019 What sounded as some baseless rumour two months ago has now turned into reality after the left-handed-batsman officially joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today. The announcement was made in the presence of BJP President Amit Shah and Union ministers Ravi Shankar Prasad and Arun Jaitley. Delhi: Former Cricketer Gautam Gambhir meets Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah. He joined the party in the presence of Union Ministers Arun Jaitley and Ravi Shankar Prasad today. pic.twitter.com/jEWTkYrwfw — ANI (@ANI) March 22, 2019 Reportedly, 37-year-old Gambhir is inspired by the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and is honoured to get the opportunity to join this platform. If sources are anything to go by, then Gambhir may contest the upcoming Lok Sabha election that begins in April, from New Delhi. © Twitter Twitter has been buzzing ever since the announcement was made. While some stand in support of his decision to join politics, others are trolling him for denying the news earlier and now joining politics. Wish you well @GautamGambhir. Politics needs honest, committed people. Much as I admired your first innings, I hope your second innings is even better. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) March 22, 2019 Delighted that @GautamGambhir who brought glory for India in the field of cricket has joined @BJP4India and has committed to actively serve the country from this platform, under the leadership of PM @narendramodi & BJP President @AmitShah Welcome to BJP Gautam! pic.twitter.com/YbflSWnF2J — Chowkidar Ravi Shankar Prasad (@rsprasad) March 22, 2019 Welcome, @GautamGambhir and many congrats for the beginning of a new innings.

Wishing you the best in this new innings too.

  2. India is a rich land of culture, multiple languages and even better food. Now, the government is trying its best to ensure that every sort of tourism and every cultural aspect of this melting pot of our rich history is glorified and promoted. So, as per the latest plan of schemes, the government wants to focus on the development and the promotion of the beautiful Urdu language in India, and to do this, it is tapping into the power of Bollywood with SRK, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif being considered to do the needful promotion. © Instagram The decision is being steered by the Ministry of Human Resource Development's autonomous body National Council for Promotion of Urdu Language (NCPUL) but the people of the nation are divided over it. A lot of people are opposing this idea, trashing it and ridiculing the actors, claiming that having Salman and Katrina promote Urdu is like ensuring it dies a natural death. Katrina Kaif promoting Urdu! This has to be the biggest joke of 2019 https://t.co/xVLO9S2oFa — Iqbal Grewal (@IqbalGrewal1) March 18, 2019 Didn't know Katrina Kaif spoke Urdu,, let alone promote it... https://t.co/b1cwc4gfJd — shantanudutta (@shantanudutta) March 18, 2019 Now, the problem with trolling is that the target here are the actors who have not given a final word, made no announcement or even endorsed this idea on their own personal social media accounts. Sure, we are all entitled to have an opinion and this is a fair point that just by the virtue of being a Bollywood actor, it doesn't mean that they can actually promote a language, which they probably don't even speak themselves. However, trolling them to be the choice of a decision-making body is actually silly. While various memes and jokes are being generated on social media, there have been some sensible internet consumers who have tried to understand that a Katrina Kaif or a Salman Khan is not a problem , but maybe the people choosing them are making a weird decision, which is not suitable for Urdu lovers across the nation. © Instagram Some people have very respectfully suggested the name of Javed Akhtar and even Salim Khan (Salman's father) to be the endorsers and that makes perfect sense. So the next time one decides to troll, maybe it will be a good idea to think twice before doing it?
  3. A day after launching the 'Main Bhi Chowkidar' campaign on Twitter, Prime Minister Narendra Modi changed his personal Twitter handle name to 'Chowkidar Narendra Modi', following which a number of senior party members also went ahead and prefixed 'Chowkidar' before their names. (c)Twitter PM Modi, since his reign in 2014, has been calling himself a 'Chowkidar' from time to time reiterating the fact that he has a prominent role in protecting the nation's interest. But unfortunately Congress has turned his campaign into a jibe, with its 'Chowkidar Chor Hai' campaign, accusing the PM of corruption in the Rafale jet fighter deal. (c)Twitter The campaign came to the forefront on the 16th of March 2019, following which Modi changed the name of his Twitter handle. So far, Amit Shah, Piyush Goyal, JP Nadda, Harsh Vardhan, Smriti Irani and Dharmendra Pradhan have also prefixed 'Chowkidar' before their names on their Twitter accounts. As Chowkidars of our nation, we are committed to creating a clean economy by using cashless financial transactions. The menace of corruption and black money has adversely affected us for decades. Time to eliminate these for a better future. #MainBhiChowkidar #ChowkidarPhirSe pic.twitter.com/y44vwyM4xs — Chowkidar Piyush Goyal (@PiyushGoyal) 17 March 2019 à¤à¤¿à¤¸à¤¨à¥ बनाया सà¥à¤µà¤à¥à¤à¤¤à¤¾ à¤à¥ सà¤à¤¸à¥à¤à¤¾à¤°...वॠहॠà¤à¥à¤à¥à¤¦à¤¾à¤°à¥¤ #MainBhiChowkidar à¤à¤¹à¥ दिल सॠ#ChowkidarPhirSe pic.twitter.com/jLqn6atvXR — Chowkidar Amit Shah (@AmitShah) 17 March 2019 (c)Twitter PM Modi announced that everyone who was fighting corruption, dirt and social evils, while working hard towards the progress of India are all Chowkidars. "Your Chowkidar is standing firm & serving the nation. But, I am not alone...today, every Indian is saying-#MainBhiChowkidar," the PM said. The phrase caught on quick the day after he announced the campaign and #ChowkidarPhirSe has been trending on Twitter since. #ChowkidarPhirSe- -He is 100% honest -He has given houses, gas, electricity to poor. - He has made India cleaner. -He has made India fastest growing economy . -He has made India safer -He has reduced inflation. -He has built more roads. -He is India's pride.@narendramodi — Pradeep Bhandari (@pradip103) 17 March 2019 This the Difference between BJP & CONgress!

Well, to be honest, we're not sure how effective this campaign may be but seeing people change their own Twitter handles by prefixing 'Chowkidar' in front of their names tell us a great deal about how well they've taken it.
  4. Just a few months ago, Disney fired James Gunn, the director of both the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' movies, and that too very famously, might I add. It was all because of a bunch of problematic tweets by the director and despite the outpouring support from fans and the cast of GOTG, Disney stayed firm in their decision. But, that was months ago and so much can happen in that time. Well, he got rehired. Today, James Gunn tweeted a message thanking everyone for all the support they have shown for him. â¤ï¸ pic.twitter.com/gdMQjlqIjs — James Gunn (@JamesGunn) March 15, 2019 While a lot of people are happy that he's back to direct the third GOTG movie, a lot of people have also shown their disapproval of Disney basically backtracking. People are divided over this development and a lot of them are calling out Disney for just waiting for the controversy to die down so they could hire him again. They did lie, tho. disney explicitly saying that they were not going to rehire james gunn but then just waiting a few months for the whole situation to die down is so disgusting — saz (@syndullatano) March 15, 2019 The jokes were not okay. even if they were just 'jokes' (which it's much more than that anyway) this behaviour is what leads to the normalisation of these awful things happening in real life and someone like james gunn shouldn't be given a platform like that in any circumstance — saz (@syndullatano) March 15, 2019 Some people are willing to give him a second chance. I'm not exactly a fan of James Gunn's movies or their messages. And making jokes about sexual abuse is harmful because it contributes to rape culture. However, it's imperative we allow people space to grow and change! It appears Gunn has sincerely learned from his past mistakes. https://t.co/dh8iIBsPbL — Jonathan McIntosh (@radicalbytes) March 15, 2019 Do people change so easily? Disney re-hires James Gunn for Guardians of the Galaxy 3! The controversy was real (and understandable IMO) but I agree there needs to be a way for "redemption" for people like Gunn who have shown remorse and proven over *years* they are not the person those tweets were painting. https://t.co/3UnFLHJLYo — Patrick Beja (@NotPatrick) March 15, 2019 But, is an apology enough? I am incredibly happy about this. Gunn said some Fucked up shit. He was also taken to task about it during GotG vol 1 and apologized. I am cool with punishing people for shit. I HATE double jeopardy. Glad to see this. https://t.co/JNcQ9FLzvx — Ben ðð ðð¦ (@BeninBiloxi) March 15, 2019 Okay, then. I understand if you don't like this and disagree. Trust me I get it. I'm not gonna become a James Gunn stan account but yes I do believe what he said is forgivable. If it ever turns out he really has ever hurt children I'll pour the gasoline FOR you and light the match. — Ben ðð ðð¦ (@BeninBiloxi) March 15, 2019 Let's hope so. this whole situation is very complicated because he wasn't a teenager talking shit on the internet, he was a grown man... but he also apologized more than once. also, the cast is so loyal to him, it makes me think he indeed changed and is a better, decent human being + — ananda (@pilotdanvers) March 15, 2019 Yes, it is. it just feels cheap of marvel/disney dismissing him and then rehiring him less than a year later and even accepting his terms of directing ss2 first... like? much to think about — ananda (@pilotdanvers) March 15, 2019 Dave Bautista would be happy. A lot of us stood by #JamesGunn when all this shit went down. The whole cast stood by him, but no one, not one person, did so more than @DaveBautista who I hope feels vindicated tonight. Watching him stand by his friend was incredibly touching. And now we all get GotG vol.3! — Dantooine (@Danburden1138) March 15, 2019 Quite possible. James Gunn is back on Guardians 3. Bautista must've been standing outside Bob Iger's house like pic.twitter.com/JSTDTa3HmZ — Issa Deadman (@CPerry404) March 15, 2019 Well. The #RehireJamesGunn worked, even though Disney confirmed it like 3 times in a row that that wouldn't happen. I even told some people online that it wasn't worth it. So if that can happen, #ReleaseTheSnyderCut @wbpictures @WBHomeEnt !!!!! — Leonardo Oliveira (@Leo_Rafael99) March 15, 2019 Everyone's happy, I guess. The best thing about this story, besides him getting a second chance, is that he's still going to do both films. https://t.co/zjnDNtTps1 — Mike (Insert Game Here) (@mpallard329) March 15, 2019
  5. "This is one of New Zealand's darkest days," Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said, as the country mourns the loss of people who were killed in the attacks on two Christchurch mosques. On Friday, the prayers of worshippers at a mosque turned into screams after a gunman mercilessly opened fire. According to the New Zealand Police, the death toll has risen over 40 and nearly 20 people have been injured. © Reuters However, this terror attack has landed famous YouTuber PewDiePie in trouble. Reportedly, out of the multiple terrorists who conducted the mass shooting, one of the gunmen live-streamed the attack and in the video he asked people to subscribe to PewDiePie. Yes, PewDiePie. The same YouTuber who has the highest number of subscribers and was recently in news for fighting with Ekta Kapoor on social media and competing with T-Series in the race for subscribers. "Remember lads, subscribe to Pewdiepie," the gunman reportedly said. © AP We're not saying PewDiePie is related to this attack in any way nor are we trying to troll or defame him. But, given his history of racist and controversial humour, people can't help but connect the dots. However, post the heinous attack and the mention of his channel in the live stream, PewDiePie has now reacted to it and says he feels 'sickened' that his name was uttered by the person. He wrote on Twitter, "Just heard news of the devastating reports from New Zealand Christchurch. I feel absolutely sickened having my name uttered by this person. My heart and thoughts go out to the victims, families and everyone affected by this tragedy." Just heard news of the devastating reports from New Zealand Christchurch. I feel absolutely sickened having my name uttered by this person. My heart and thoughts go out to the victims, families and everyone affected by this tragedy. — ƿ૯ωá«É¿à«¯Æ¿É¿à«¯ (@pewdiepie) March 15, 2019 According to a report in India Today, the gunman apparently visited 8Chan before murdering people on Friday and left this message there "Please do your part by spreading my message, making memes and shit-posting as you usually do." Our hearts go out to the families who lost their loved ones in this deadly terror attack and we hope that people of New Zealand get the strength to live through this dark time.
  6. Last week Rajkot police issued a notification to ban PUBG Mobile citing the game to be 'addictive' and harmful for youngsters. Well, if you thought that people would get away playing the game after the ban, then guess what? You were wrong. Within just five days, Rajkot police have arrested 10 youngsters for playing the battle royale game and violating the ban in different parts of the city like Junagadh, Nana Mava Road, Vaswani Road, Atmiya College Road and Jagannath Chowk areas. All these youngsters were aged between 19 and 25 years, and they were playing the game in a public place. © PUBG Mobile The accused were arrested and their mobile phones were seized. They were released on bail later. However, it does send out a stern message that the ban won't remain just on paper. While speaking to TOI, Police Inspector VS Vanzara of Rajkot taluka police station said, “All these students were arrested for violating the notification issued by police commissioner. They were released on bail later.” The ban notification, in case you're wondering, was issued on March 7 by the Rajkot police commissioner, and it's currently in effect in the city. Anyone caught playing the game would be liable to action under sections 144 and 37(3).
  7. There are so many types of people in the metro. Here, CarryMinati and Ankush Bahuguna show us what a few of them look like and the results are hilarious.
  8. After some rather disturbing and bizarre online challenges like the 'Momo Challenge, 'Kiki Challenge' or even the 'Tide-Pod' Challenge, we finally have a challenge that makes a lot of sense and is good for the world! The '#Trashtag Challenge' initiates a good Samaritan scenario and it's catching up quite steadfastly. © Instagram The challenge includes taking photos of dirty spaces/areas and then cleaning the entire area up and photographing the clean spot again. The ultimate goal is to post a 'before' and 'after' shot of a once dirty area to an absolutely spotless one, which will pose as an example of great civic sense. The psychology behind such challenges is that it follows a herd mentality. If an open platform such as social media is used to post such challenges, 90% of the time, chances are people are going to follow through and ape a particular trending act. So, needless to say, the #Trashtag Challenge has proven to be rather successful and people in a lot of countries are posting pictures of areas they have cleaned, on the internet. The challenge has somewhat made its way through India but not as aggressively as we had hoped. Currently, only Bangalore and Nagaland have seen this trend unfold. We do wish it comes to other states soon enough because dozens of places need that kind of intervention in this country, since the 'Swach Bharat Mission' has taken its own sweet time to deliver. © Twitter The #Trashtag Challenge has been around for a while now. It was first promoted by a company back in 2015 but it was revisited again this year with this initiative post on Instagram: Double TAP for more amazing facts&quotes ð . -ð¥ TAG a friend to show thisð¡ -ðTURN ON POST NOTIFICATION -âFOLLOW for more... - . . . . . #fact #facts #didyouknow #instafacts #factsdaily #trashtag #dailyfacts #factsð¯ #factz A post shared by TheScientistð (@thescientistfacts) on Mar 10, 2019 at 8:54am PDT Twitter, Reddit and Instagram users all around the world have willfully taken up the challenge and are producing some rather amazing transformational results, with cleaning up garbage-stacked areas around them.

  9. Will the real Melania Trump please stand up? No actually, for real. Everyone loves a good conspiracy theory and this one involving the US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump is a little too weird. In short, people online are convinced that Donald Trump brought along a body-double for his wife Melania and the woman in the picture is not actually FLOTUS. Yep, instead of people tweeting about #FakeNews and Donald Trump, the new big thing is #FakeMelania. While all these wild conspiracy theories are almost always bullshit, the proof for this one is right here and it's honestly a little convincing. Both of them recently visited communities in Eastern Alabama to pay their condolences after recent tornadoes hit the area claiming the lives of 23 people. This picture of them basically restarted the entire theory which first surfaced two years ago. President Trump viewing the 23 crosses representing the 23 tornado victims. pic.twitter.com/TgqkWOXLu9 — Sally Pitts (@SallyPitts_WSFA) March 8, 2019 Is it the hand-holding that's giving it away? Because, we all know how much affection they show in public. People are really doubting if it's the real Melania Trump and the hashtag #FakeMelania has started trending on Twitter again. I previously thought the #fakeMelania thing was bullshit but I actually don't think that's her. lol https://t.co/KQNekZy0pi — Danny//B ð (@OGBotterz) March 8, 2019 It's not acceptable at all.

  10. One of the main topics of conversation surrounding 'Captain Marvel' was representation. There are so many superheroes for little boys to look up to, and finally, Captain Marvel came and even little girls got to see a badass superhero and get inspired. But, Captain Marvel gave us one more important representation in pop culture - representation for cats. We've already established how Goose the cat was the real hero of the latest Marvel movie and how the little adorable alien cat stole the show every time it appeared on the screen. Marvel even gave Goose its own superhero poster because they already knew the cat was going to be a fan favourite. © Marvel The particular poster got so much love when it came out like two months ago, but ever since the movie released, this poster started a whole new trend in Korea. People started photoshopping their cats - and other pets - onto the poster and the resulting pictures are honestly purrfect. (Sorry not sorry for the pun) The trending hashtag is in Korean and it translates to Captain Marvel - My House Goose. This is so cool! #캡í´ë§ë¸_ì°ë¦¬ì§êµ¬ì¤ ê¼­ ë¹ì²¨ëê³ ì¶ìµëë¤!!!!! pic.twitter.com/daxGmjGxix — ì°ì£¼ê³ ìì´ (@aKIXQrv5NLlytVP) March 9, 2019 What a cutie! ë ìì¤ì¤ì¹#캡í´ë§ë¸_ì°ë¦¬ì§êµ¬ì¤ pic.twitter.com/7C6uVWwKLw — ííëë¼ì ì¤êµ¬ì¤êµ¬ (@tp59cat) March 10, 2019 Good photoshop skills. ì°ë¦¬ì§ 구ì¤ë ììì ë¶ ë¿ëë¤ð#캡í´ë§ë¸_ì°ë¦¬ì§êµ¬ì¤ pic.twitter.com/dyEcYf9BhW — HGâ (@haegol_man) March 10, 2019 Bonus round? #캡í´ë§ë¸_ì°ë¦¬ì§êµ¬ì¤ koreans are using ⤴ï¸this hashtag and photoshopping their cats into the captain marvel poster so i thought id use my bad photoshop skills to add an izone spin pic.twitter.com/dJjhjAvGaC — Chaeyeon's bare shoulders ðª (@dukh00) March 10, 2019 It does.

  11. Samsung recently announced its new true wireless earbuds with the Galaxy S10 and is a competitor with the AirPods. We've been using the Galaxy Buds for a week and it's been a good experience so far. At the same time, we've been using the AirPods ever since it was launched and you can read our full review here. We pit the two wireless earbuds against each other to find out which one is best for music lovers. Sound Quality Regardless of the features, earbuds need to sound good and if it doesn't fit the bill, it completely defeats the purpose. The AirPods generally sound awesome especially for something with small drivers. It delivers clean vocals, has balanced lows and great highs. The overall sound is quite impressive —until I heard the Galaxy Buds. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy Buds sound a tad bit better than the AirPods simply because it is clearer and louder. Sound quality is almost at par; however, the lows were a bit muffled. You can adjust it from the gear app; however, it still isn't as good as the AirPods. Winner: Galaxy Buds for delivering cleaner and louder sounds. Design © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla In terms of design, Apple has made the true wireless earbuds iconic which has resulted in companies copying the design. It has a glossy white finish on the case and has that distinctive design on the actual earbuds. Having said that, the AirPods are not sweat resistant and can slip out with ease. The Galaxy Buds, on the other hand, follows a refined design from the Gear Icon X and is also sweat resistant. It isn't as slippery as the AirPods and will not fall out as easily. The charging case is a bit bigger than its competitor but also supports wireless charging. If you a smartphone that supports reverse wireless charging, you can keep it charged on the go or use a Qi-certified wireless mat. AirPods, on the other hand, does not support wireless charging and needs to be charged using the lightning cable. Winner: Galaxy Buds for having sweat resistance and a wireless charging case. Connectivity © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy Buds supports Bluetooth 5 connectivity whereas the AirPods use Apple's W1 chip. Both devices connect to an iPhone/Galaxy S10 seamless the moment you open the charging case. Having said that, the story is a bit different when it comes to connectivity and range. The Galaxy Buds have a very poor range even when the Galaxy S10 would be in our pocket. It would often disconnect or is unable to transfer enough data for seamless music experience. AirPods, on the other hand, can play music up to 5 feet without any loss of data or music. Winner: AirPods for better connectivity. Control and Call Quality © MensXP The Galaxy Buds have a touchpad in the triangular shell and can be used to control music and make or answer calls. You can tap once to play/pause music, double tap to skip to the next track or tap thrice to go to the previous song. The touch on the Galaxy Buds is a bit sensitive however it was not that hard to operate. AirPods, on the other hand, have similar controls but are divided amongst the two earbuds. You can map it according to your own liking and even summon Siri by double tapping on the earbuds. It works perfectly with Apple Music and Spotify. Having said that, call quality is better on the AirPods as audio on the Galaxy Buds were a bit muddy. AirPods has clearer sound and mic quality which gives it the extra edge over the Galaxy Buds. Winner: AirPods for better call quality and better integration with Apple Music. Battery Life © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy Buds can last up to 6 hours on a single charge whereas the average battery life on the AirPods is 4.5 hours. The Galaxy Buds come with 68-mAh battery and can even be charged on the go via wireless charging (provided you have the Galaxy S10 or the Huawei Mate 20 Pro). Winner: Galaxy Buds for longer battery life and wireless charging Overall Winner Even though it's a close fight, the Galaxy Buds deliver a better experience and offers more features than the AirPods. It sounds better and is more comfortable to use. It fits snug as a bug and won't fall out as easily as Apple's AirPods. The Galaxy Buds are also cheaper than Apple's AirPods which makes it even more superior than the AirPods.
  12. Don't get me wrong, I love Twitter, but it's like a breeding ground for trolls most of the time. But along with the bad, there's also the good and here's a heartwarming story about one of the best things that internet and social media have made possible. A loving and concerned son tweeted about his dad's new donut shop and how his dad is sad about no customer showing up. My dad is sad cause no one is coming to his new donut shop ð­ pic.twitter.com/y5aGB1Acrc — billy (@hibillyby) March 9, 2019 Such a cute little shop and such a hardworking man, the tweet soon went viral, because who wouldn't want to help out a family like that. The tweet currently stands at 234,468 retweets and 495,978 likes and all of it happened in just one day. Soon, he posted the address and Instagram page for the shop and lo and behold, everyone started showing up to buy some donuts. Instagram: pic.twitter.com/SBllDShapA — billy (@hibillyby) March 10, 2019 In just a few hours after the first tweet, he gave everyone this incredible update. Just wanted to update yall! We completely sold out of donuts and kolaches! You are all amazing. I can't thank everyone enough for coming out and supporting local businesses. This means so much to my family â¤ï¸ pic.twitter.com/o3GQcKvVnG — billy (@hibillyby) March 10, 2019 Look at those smiles! As soon as people saw the tweet, they wanted to come for a donut if they lived close-by. I live literally 5 min away..

  13. Marvel fans are still mourning the loss of the legend that is Stan Lee and he obviously needed an amazing farewell from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and they managed to pull that off with 'Captain Marvel'. It's the first MCU movie to release after Stan's passing, so obviously, a fitting tribute was in order. Warning, slight spoiler ahead. Remember the Marvel logo intro from every movie? With all the superheroes from the MCU? Well, a lot of people were expecting to see Captain Marvel herself join that but Marvel had something far more special planned. It was a Stan Lee tribute, and a beautiful one at that. The intro had already made people emotional and then made them sit at the edge of their seats waiting for one of the last Stan Lee cameos ever. People on Twitter shared their reaction to that Stan Lee tribute and how everyone in the theatres started applauding almost everywhere. They did a quick tribute to Stan Lee at the beginning of #CaptainMarvel & everyone clapped. It was beautiful. — ð ð¤ ð ð ð (@Tanya_HanaKim) March 8, 2019 Yes, it is. #CaptainMarvel has an awesome Stan Lee tribute, had the theater cheering from the very start. His cameo is super well done also. — [TCA]mutamatt (@mutamatt) March 8, 2019 Yes, please, that would be so awesome. hey @Marvel can you please keep the opening tribute to @TheRealStanLee in every movie now because it was amazing. #CaptainMarvel — ash (@ashtothemoon) March 8, 2019 He has a cameo is 'Endgame' as well right? Can I just say that Stan Lee's cameo in Captain Marvel is his best. — ð»(@SauronDark0) March 8, 2019 Everyone's reaction. When that #CaptainMarvel intro rolled in pic.twitter.com/UYLPEvb00v — Mitch Bay (@mitchkbay) March 8, 2019 He sure has. everyone in my theater applauded after the stan lee tribute during the intro to captain marvel. and i mean EVERYONE. when i say that man has impacted so many people, i mean it. — ððððð (@morphjng) March 8, 2019 Very appropriate. #CaptainMarvel starts with a short tribute to Stan Lee. Very appropriate and appreciated. Most of us in the audience at @BroadNOLA clapped. #Excelsior — Tim Ruppert ð»(@tmruppert) March 8, 2019 It really was.

  14. The entire PewDiePie vs T-series thing was a little too quiet for a while back there, but it's back with a bang, well kinda. With the entire world - including India - supporting PewDiePie in remaining the most subscribed channel on the website, Bhushan Kumar, Gulshan Kumar's son and the chairman and managing director of T-Series decided to make a case for his company on Twitter. He posted a video talking about how T-Series becoming the most subscribed channel will make history and will be a win for India, on his Twitter account. We're on the brink of becoming the world's biggest @YouTube channel. We can make history. We can make India win. Subscribe to @TSeries #BharatWinsYouTube https://t.co/izEu8dzHdf pic.twitter.com/dJumzHwADa — Bhushan Kumar (@itsBhushanKumar) March 6, 2019 Umm, not to be rude, but how is India winning or even profiting from T-Series' win? It's just a transparent attempt at his part by trying to play on people's patriotism, which is honestly not okay. Furthermore, T-Series is not exactly what Twitter is about. PewDiePie started a channel on his own and then, over time, became unbelievably successful after putting in so much hard work. T-Series is a company, not a 'YouTuber' and it doesn't deserve to dethrone PewDiePie's record. Pewds on the other hand just laughed it off. They are getting desperate ðhttps://t.co/TIqHBJeyrY — ƿ૯ωá«É¿à«¯Æ¿É¿à«¯ (@pewdiepie) March 6, 2019 It's also funny how the replies on Bhushan Kumar's tweet are basically - Subscribe to Pewdiepie — The Marius (@MariusGabrielG) March 6, 2019 Wow. We forced them into begging. Lmao. We forced a giant corporation with thousands of workers to beg for subs. That's an incredible achievement. And more satisfying than being the #1 TBH. — Crow (@CrowTheCrow1) March 6, 2019 Exactly my point. Creators not corporations — Dannyh09 (@Dannyh09_) March 6, 2019 Yep. #BharatWinsYouTube it doesn't mean that India wins, it's a corporation who doesn't matter about the creators, you maybe win in number or with money but PewDiePie is one of those won our hearts! — Natalia Capdeville (@Chuflett) March 6, 2019 Anyway, subscribe to PewDiePie!
  15. Nothing goes viral faster than internet fads. Especially, if it involves a first-hand, small activity, consider it a rage. The Vans Challenge is the latest example of that. Apparently, if you randomly throw Vans shoes anywhere, they will always land upright, face-up. Sounds crazy? A little physics-defying, perhaps? We thought so too, but some people claimed this to be the case, and now other people are trying to figure out whether it's true by experimenting with their own shoes, flipping them away mercilessly. Well that was a fun afternoon....ð#VansChallenge pic.twitter.com/NgApQS3wu0 — JD (@JDOfficial) March 5, 2019 A number of videos have emerged online that show how people are successfully proving this 'hypothesis' to be correct, and as a result, the #VansChallenge has been gaining momentum, driving others to try out the same. I had to explain to my mom why I was throwing all my Van's on the floor at 12AM. #Vanschallenge pic.twitter.com/USwUJkpyPX — Kris (@Sw0rnT0Death) March 4, 2019 This #VansChallenge is getting out of hand pic.twitter.com/n8hPF8jnQl — Michael Bridger (@myohmichael__) March 5, 2019 What sorcery is this?

  16. Abhinandan Varthaman - the name literally every Indian knows and will never, ever forget. The Wing Commander has now become the epitome of bravery and courage in the country and no could be more proud about it. It's actually not just him, but his name as well that has inspired people and some have even named their new-born after him. Bollywood is also not behind, and people are already planning to make movies about him. But, some people have also decided to cash in on his popularity in the worst way. Turns out, a lot of fake accounts with his name sprung up online soon after his release and well, it's not him, folks! We all know how the number game on social media works, and it's so sad that some people will go to any extreme lengths to get that, even if it means impersonating a national hero online. Government sources confirm that this is a fake Twitter account #AbhinandanVarthaman pic.twitter.com/4mxahDz7Gn — ANI (@ANI) March 3, 2019 Even the Indian Air Force had to step in and issue a proper warning as more and more fake accounts popped up. #FAKE ACCOUNTS : Wg Cdr Abhinandan Varthaman does not have a social media account on any portal (Facebook /Instagram /Twitter). Please avoid following any fake accounts being used in the name of any IAF Airwarrior for spreading misinformation. Jai Hind!!! pic.twitter.com/nG8C7ZUkQ6 — Indian Air Force (@IAF_MCC) March 6, 2019 So, just a PSA, yes we all would love to follow him on Twitter, but obviously, the real him. Beware of the fake accounts!
  17. Remember how much outrage there was when it became mandatory for all movie theatres to play the National Anthem before every movie? Well, Air India is also now doing something slightly similar. According to an Air India advisory, that was issued to all the crew members yesterday, they now have to say 'Jai Hind' with a “slight pause and much fervour” after every single announcement that is made. Yep. The patriotism is all set to take off. Air India crew now needs to announce "Jai Hind" on all its flights as per a new order today: pic.twitter.com/2Adtr34eTK — Tarun Shukla (@shukla_tarun) March 4, 2019 As expected, it got a lot of reactions online with people making fun of it, to straight up calling it forced nationalism. Here's what everyone is saying: Maybe. Now with this new move, I'm sure Air India will soon become profitable. Jai Hind! pic.twitter.com/5Am6UyiQPe — Harsh Goenka (@hvgoenka) March 4, 2019 Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti also had some inputs. Little surprise that with General Elections around the corner, the josh of patriotism hasn't even spared the skies. https://t.co/AyVvEPDU3u — Mehbooba Mufti (@MehboobaMufti) March 5, 2019 Jai Hind, but with a question mark. “Air India regret the delay in the departure of your flight” ...(slight pause) ... “Jai Hind”? — shiven surendranath (@shivens) March 4, 2019 That's exactly how it will go down. What then will transpire in an emergency situation once the announcement becomes a habit? 1 sec lost for every direction issued? Find nearest exit, jai hind. Look for oxygen masks, jai hind. Find floatation device beneath seat, jai hin-- https://t.co/SVrPiQLcGa — medhachakrabartty (@medhac1) March 4, 2019 It honestly does. First, a demand that audiences in cinema halls stand up for the national anthem, and now this! All Indians love India, national sentiment comes naturally. No need to force feed nationalism down our throats! India deserves better ! https://t.co/L2VxdV3JtM — Malini Parthasarathy (@MaliniP) March 5, 2019 I like how the tweet ended. Air India crew has been instructed to say 'Jai Hind' after every announcement in the flight! 'Muscular nationalism' is THE ISSUE in 2019. Jai Hind! pic.twitter.com/sCNPmE2Jdp — Sukesh Ranjan (@RanjanSukesh) March 4, 2019 Please don't. As per a new order Air India crew have to say 'Jai Hind' after every announcement on all flights. Please don't forget to salute if you see one flying in the sky. — Ram Subramanian (@VORdotcom) March 4, 2019 It sure is! Air India announcements now end with "Jai hind" - was this always the case it is it new? Either way it's embarrassing. — radhika vaz (@radvaz) September 26, 2017 I will honestly do it for first class. No not enough. The crew must also yell “how's the josh?” Once everybody has boarded. The loudest “high sir” and “jai hind” shall be upgraded to first class. — Divyank Panwar (@divyank_14) March 4, 2019 Yes. while landing everyone is supposed to sing national anthem as well? — ivansikorsky (@ivan_sikorsky) March 4, 2019 Yes, this too. Next what, National Anthem before take off? https://t.co/OjJZzbBTt2 — Srivatsa (@srivatsayb) March 4, 2019
  18. We know about a few immortal Hollywood actors, like Keanu Reeves, Anne Hathaway, and even Paul Rudd. They look exactly how they looked like a decade or two ago. But for now, let's focus on someone immortal from Bollywood- Anil Kapoor. The man seems to have not aged a bit in decades, actually, he looks even younger right now compared to how he looked, in say 1990s. What is your secret, Anil? The nation honestly wants to know! Everyone has always been talking about how young he looks even though he's in his 60s, but this topic of conversation popped up once again yesterday after he posted a picture of himself alongside Aditya Roy Kapur, Disha Patani, and Kunal Kemmu announcing his upcoming movie 'Malang'. Together we are #MALANG!

  19. By now, everyone knows what's offensive and what's not, because, let's be real, it's 2019 and everyone is at least a little bit woke by now. So, it was surprising when people heard Prime Minister Narendra Modi making an insensitive joke on dyslexia. During the Smart India Hackathon 2019, a student was talking to PM Modi about her idea for helping students with dyslexia, when he interrupted her to crack a joke. He said, “Will this work for a 40-50-year-old child, too?” When she agreed that it would, he went on to say, “Then that will make the mothers of such children very happy.” A lot of people think that this uncalled-for and insensitive comment was a subtle swing at Congress President Rahul Gandhi. The video obviously ended up on Twitter and people immediately started calling him out and saying how shameful it actually is for him to mock dyslexia like that. The Prime Minister of India keeping it classy as ever. Cracking a joke about dyslexia to target a political opponent. pic.twitter.com/qLoQMwKxVH — Pratik Sinha (@free_thinker) March 3, 2019 People are very angry. God! When we thought @narendramodi cd not go any lower, he still manages to stoop. As a parent I do not want my kid to listen to a speaker who'd use dyslexia as a slur and here our Prime Minister uses dyslexia to insult @RahulGandhi This is wrong on so many levels!!! https://t.co/gQ2IZVvY0m — Preeti Sharma Menon (@PreetiSMenon) March 3, 2019 Everyone seemed to be actually just disappointed and not surprised. I know someone who has lived with dyslexia - and I know others who have made valiant efforts to build their lives despite the disability. Modi's remarks were in poor taste, but hardly unexpected, given his track record. https://t.co/lzcPRrm7rB — Salil Tripathi سÙÛ٠ترÛÙ¾Ø§Ù¹Ú¾Û àª¸àª²àª¿àª² તà«àª°àª¿àªªàª¾àª à« (@saliltripathi) March 3, 2019 People also pointed out remarkable people with dyslexia who went on to do great things. Leonardo Da Vinci,Albert Einstein, Pablo Picasso,Lee Kuan Yew, Alexander Graham Bell,Tom Cruise and many great men & women were all believed to be dyslexic & look what they made of their lives. Mocking differently abled people marks a new low in our political discourse.#Dyslexia https://t.co/H2Y747zGid — Sumanth Raman (@sumanthraman) March 3, 2019 Very direct. Shameful and distressing. Some of us have dyslexic or disabled relatives, friends, children and parents. Sattar saal mein pehli baar, a person with this crassness occupies the chair of the PM. Enough, Mr Modi. Yeh hain sanskar aapke? https://t.co/8wBvtjPy7q — Sitaram Yechury (@SitaramYechury) March 3, 2019 Distasteful, indeed. It is utterly disgusting for a PM to make fun of dyslexia for his distasteful political humor. Challenging the earth's core for a new low here! pic.twitter.com/VbBYFzp8kV — Aakash Mawal (@aakashmawal) March 3, 2019 PM Modi is also being called heartless. Just came across a video of our @narendramodi taking political potshots using the name of dyslexic people. Shame on you Modi!! You just can't go below this. Your insensitivity can't be washed away by dipping in any river. They may be slow in learning but not heartless like you. — Siddaramaiah (@siddaramaiah) March 4, 2019 It's not something to be mocked. Dyslexia is one of the most common learning disorders that affects 3-7% people, (traits in upto 17-20%). It is genetic (heritable) that affects reading, writing & hence learning skills but not a marker for intelligence. Poor judgement by the PM to mock a neurological condition pic.twitter.com/lJczhocUYV — Dr. Sumaiya Shaikh (@Neurophysik) March 3, 2019 This is full-on calling him out. Making fun of Dyslexia to target political opponent. There is no low which is too Low for Narendra Modi. Worse are the students who were clapping but cant blame them. When the PM of the Nation is such a Cheap Man, they had to entertain him pic.twitter.com/bJ7apIlpup — Joy (@Joydas) March 3, 2019 Apparently. Making fun of Dyslexia to target political opponent.

Is there no limit to this man's insensitivity?#BiharRejectsModi #ModInAmethi pic.twitter.com/hWcXYt8dHV — Shama Mohamed (@drshamamohd) March 3, 2019 Umm. When you laugh at a serious learning and cognitive disability like you're a goddamn illiterate and insensitive baboon, you set us back by years. Years spent in trying to destigmatise, humanise and normalise dyslexia. Wah Modi Ji, you've outdone yourself and sunken even lower! — Aiyshwarya Mahadev (@AiyshwaryaM) March 4, 2019
  20. “I am not supposed to tell you this” - It's the most important quote of the week and everyone in the country has heard it at least once, all thanks to Indian Air Force (IAF) Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman. The entire nation has been celebrating the return of the IAF pilot and #WelcomeHomeAbhinandan has been trending since his release was announced by Pakistan. But, before that, it was this line that got people to respect him even more. When the Pakistani Army asked him about the details of his mission, he only had one answer - “I am sorry, I am not supposed to tell you this”. It exploded on social media and became a talking point everywhere. The brave and stoic manner in which he deflected all the questions thrown at him, while in captivity, struck a chord with everyone in the nation. But, that one line wields so much power now, that even Indian police departments are using it to give out important messages. Well, the Mumbai Police better watch out because Nagpur Police is here to take their crown. When someone asks for your OTP : "I am not supposed to tell you this"#WelcomeHomeAbhinandan #NagpurPolice — NagpurCityPolice (@NagpurPolice) March 1, 2019 Like always, it got a lot of praise online and everyone appreciated it a lot.

  21. There's probably not a single person in the country right now who doesn't know the simmering tensions between India and Pakistan, which are at an all-time high right now. The recent turbulence started with the deadly Pulwama terror attack on 14th February and then escalated after India's air strike on a JeM terror camp in Pakistan on 26th February. Amid all this turbulence and rash cries for a possible confrontation, a lot of people from both countries have come together to call for peace and got the hashtag #SayNoToWar trending on Twitter. This hashtag started yesterday, but right now, it's much more important after Pakistan announced that it is releasing captured IAF Pilot Abhinandan Varthaman tomorrow as a 'gesture of peace'. #SayNoToWar is not cowardice. The father of the nation was opposed to any war and he certainly was no coward. In fact he was one of the bravest that humanity has ever seen. Social media jingoism and mindless warmongering should not be mistaken for bravery!! — Prashant Kishor (@PrashantKishor) February 28, 2019 It's great!

  22. "I can't believe a film on menstruation just won an Oscar!" - said 25-year-old director, Rayka Zehtabchi. Honestly, neither can we. But, Guneet Monga's 'Period. End of Sentence' has created history (both for the world and India) by winning the Best Documentary Short Subject at the 91st Academy Awards aka Oscars 2019. © Twitter The documentary, which deals with the stigma around menstruation in rural India, revolves around a group of women who didn't have access to pads that further lead to health problems. But, when a sanitary pad machine is installed in their village, they start learning how to manufacture and market their own pads, in order to become financially independent and also improve their hygiene. © sikhya entertainment India swelled with pride when the short documentary was announced as the winner.

  23. The day has come. The day has finally come where people got to roast the man who roasts people on a regular basis online. And, the best part is desi people got to do that. Yes, a Thai chef also did that last year, but this time it's special because it involves butter chicken. Basically, Gordon Ramsay posted a picture of what I feel like is the worst looking butter chicken I have ever seen. He wrote he was eating the dish at Heathrow and he can't get on a flight before enjoying this first. But, it doesn't look right - or appetizing at all, tbh - and you should know that, Gordon. Take a look yourself. Can't get on a flight from Heathrow without enjoying the butter chicken curry at @PlaneFood.... #readyfortakeoff @HeathrowAirport pic.twitter.com/OVsLtluRkl — Gordon Ramsay (@GordonRamsay) February 18, 2019 Where is the naan, or roti, or something?

  24. February seems like a dreaded month. The month of love. Dreaded, if you have no one to share it with, and the most fabulous one if you are in love. Being single is never a piece of cake, is it? Especially around Valentine's Day which seems to be growing grander, as if on steroids, with each passing year. via GIPHY Somehow, with each year that goes by, the definition of being single is changing and evolving. It is no longer that sequestered thing, a fact to be hidden away, a status to shy away from, a shameful condition. But is it as good as it looks? We are in the 21st century, the world is constantly altering, yet people still seem to have a terrible problem with someone who is single. via GIPHY If we look closely, being single in 2019 is better than doing so in say 2009, but the stigma attached to it is still a long way from being completely eliminated. According to popular perception, being in a relationship has always been the celebrated goal of one's life. © Fox Searchlight Pictures In today's whirlwind world fueled by social media, the relationships that people have seem to be just for the sake of Instagram and Facebook. It doesn't matter how much love there is, the more important factor is the number of likes and comments it gets. Apparently, in today's era, the number of likes decides your compatibility and the length of your relationship. Being in a relationship has become a fad, a status symbol, something to be flaunted or people won't believe you. It is a world where you put up a mushy, cheesy, romantic message for your current S.O. which garners a lot of social media validation and then changes once the relationship comes to an end; either the message gets erased or the name of the person in it changes. via GIPHY Has the meaning of love changed in 2019? Look around you. People hook up and break up in an instant, their relationships change more frequently than Katy Perry's hair colour. Relationships today seem to have lost their meaning; we flit from one to another like a bee collecting honey. Maybe, we just don't want to be alone. via GIPHY Today, two people know that there's a certain expiry date to the relationship. Everything does. It is a deal; you get someone to hang around with for a few days and they do the same. No matter how short or bad it might be, we are jumping from one relationship to another. Just for the sake of it. But aren't we selling ourselves short? It feels realistic to start a romance knowing that nothing lasts forever but not giving ourselves the benefit of the doubt is what is making us unhappier. © Focus Features Why can't we let ourselves be? Maybe breathe a bit before launching ourselves into a new relationship just for the sake of it. Are we really that lonely that we need constant attention from others or someone to give us a sense of approval all the time? The constant pressure to be seen with someone, to seek love from someone is enveloping our lives; when was the last time you had a conversation with yourself? via GIPHY Yes, I get it, it is one's own life, we can live it any way we want but shouldn't we stop and ponder a bit on whether that is how we are living it or is it the way someone else wants us to live it? A “Couple” Thoughts! “How are you still single?” Heard it somewhere, haven't you? © Pinterest Being single is a choice. It is as simple as that. By your own choice. © Universal Pictures Chances are that if you have been single for a long time, you must have heard whispers all around you; mellow ones which hush when you appear, louder ones which are blatant and acerbic and are mostly from people you know. Sometimes, the people closest to you can hurt you; your relatives with their constant hankering and hounding about your personal life, that best friend who unintentionally judges you, or that friend who changed once they got into a relationship. You must have observed it in your friends. Once a person begins to lead a “couple” life, their opinion about single people completely changes. We all know “that couple” who believes that marriage and kids put them on a pedestal; a higher one than people who are not engaged with someone. via GIPHY There are all sorts of people out there. Over the years, I have come across a lot of people and I, being the organizer that I am, have categorized the couples into three groups: 1. The Power Couple: I have a lot of friends who are in a relationship; some slyly let that fact rub into other people's faces. via GIPHY If one is happy being a couple, it's fantastic but it is hardly veracious for anyone to force one's happiness on other people who are not as fortunate as they believe they are. These “power couples” constantly crop up in your social networking feed with their numerous (way too many posts than normal) mushy romantic photos and articulate posts or just can't seem to keep their hands off each other in someone else's presence as well. My advice: a) Get a room; b) tell me the name of your Internet service provider ( because posting cutesy stuff from remote areas is a feat in itself) Love, like air, is a feeling; not seen or heard but felt with the heart. 2. The No-Nonsense Couple: Just like everything else, people also come in good and bad. I know a lot of couples who are the best people I have ever met. Unlike the prior set, they do not judge you for not having a significant other and are not coercing other single people to get married or rush into a relationship just for the sake of it. The goodness of their hearts doesn't need the constant validation of other people or social media. Nor does their love. via GIPHY 3. The Do-Gooder Couple: Which brings me to those couples who think it to be their personal Hercules' Labor to find someone for their single friend. They keep on telling you how fabulous and marvellous it is to be in a relationship; to be able to share your life with someone you love. via GIPHY Guess what? We'll figure it out. Whether one needs to be in a relationship or not is a decision only one can make, so thank you for all the help and all your good intentions but we would love it if you channelled your goodwill somewhere where it is actually needed like saving the rain-forests or conserving water. :P This patronizing just makes you annoying. If these couples did this out of the fondness for a single person, it wouldn't be a problem, but they do it to feel good about themselves. The Present Dear Single People, When was the last time you received a present from someone? Just like that, out of the blue. Still thinking, right? Other than your birthday, a person who is single never gets any presents or gifts. What about the money you spend on the gifts for other people: on someone's bridal shower, bachelor party, birthday, wedding, engagement, the list goes on? What does a person who is single get from other people? Quick math. Just do a round-up of the gifts you have bought for a friend; a friend who you won't meet often or one who won't return the gesture by being gracious enough to apologize for a mistake. Surprised? via GIPHY We all spend a lot of money just to be cordial and be in tune with the societal norms. We don't get a gift for celebrating all the right choices we have made, do we? No one gives you a present for being a good friend or a wise advisor or not falling for the wrong person. (And you shouldn't expect it as well.) I know, calculating the amount of money you spent on gifts is an abomination. Ah, so materialistic! No one asks you to pay a certain amount for giving away presents but still, gifting being the social convention, we adhere to it. And to be completely honest, who doesn't like receiving presents? But isn't it being pragmatic, to see how much you have spent on a person and will that person return the favour? We all do this, don't we? We gift people things but hardly ever do we estimate the cost of the gift. I do not say that we need to give over-the-top gifts to everyone, but we should factor in the relationship we have with the person. It may sound wrong, but in the long run, it helps. Why be disheartened by giving a person something of value and get nothing in return? Would you give away a part of your body to someone for free? Judge-y Judgerson! For a society which takes years together to give out a fair verdict on cases, we don't take more than a jiffy to judge someone and the choices they make. We all judge other people, all the time. I do, you do, we all do. It is human nature. The people who say that they don't judge anyone are lying (because they judge you for judging someone else :P). People will judge you no matter what you do. Single? Judging you! via GIPHY Committed? Judging you! via GIPHY Married? Judging you! via GIPHY Marriage or getting into a relationship doesn't mean getting tied down. It just means that you have found another person whom you have chosen, who understands you and respects you for the fact that you are your own person. Just like being single, having kids; getting married; being in a relationship are individual choices. None of it makes you better if you choose to do one of these. Yes, demeaning someone because of the choices they have made does make you an atrocious human being. via GIPHY Being single is completely normal. It doesn't make you desperate, nor does it make you a loser. It is just you, being you. It means you are comfortable with who you are, you do not need another person for it. The people who judge you for taking time and trying to find someone who will understand you are the ones who are driving on the wrong side of the road. Why should we have to explain and defend ourselves for not being a relationship? Single And Fabulous! I believe a fortunate few are meant to be single because they are enough for themselves. Single, after all, is just a term; a word. It depends on you how to view it: crying behind closed doors because of it or indulging yourself with happiness just because you can. via GIPHY It's surprising that the society makes you think that being single is an appalling thing, popular culture doesn't do justice to the thrill of getting to know yourself and working on yourself. Apparently, according to them, single people can only be two things: sad or desperate. © Focus Features Hardly ever are there any fictional characters which are shown to be single and content with it. Romance is mandatory. Why? Because that is what brings in the audience. © New Line Cinema The freedom which being single gives is hardly comparable to other experiences. You can sleep as long as you want, have as many crushes you want, eat what you want without guilt, and you are not answerable to anyone for the choices you make. via GIPHY What is wrong with being single? The Sun does not need anyone else to shine. The biggest challenges in your life are faced by one person; you. Celebrate who you are. No one will be around for you forever, except you. © 20th Century Fox Television We need to break the stigma of self-love. Why should someone be judged for loving themselves more than another person? Don't we have better things to look out for? via GIPHY Maybe, you will find a person who completes you later in life, but for the time being, enjoy your own company, because only we can know ourselves the best. No one is asking you to be a hermit; know yourself better before letting someone else into your life. Don't let other factors bully you into feeling guilty for being single. © Focus Features Everything takes time; breathe. The best thing about being single? No one to judge you as you proceed to eat that tub of ice-cream, chocolate sauce all slathered across your face as you watch your favorite show on Netflix. :P via GIPHY Do not fall prey to the social convention or someone else's judgement. Elizabeth Bennet did not, nor did Sheldon Cooper. And who needs another person, as long as you have got pizza. Just saying. via GIPHY P.S.: Will most certainly be judged for writing this! :P
  25. Captain Marvel is just about two weeks away and honestly we can't wait for it to release soon enough. I mean, who wouldn't want to watch a movie about a superhero who is supposed to be the strongest out of everyone in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Well, actually there are a lot of sexist people out there who are already trying to make the movie bomb on Rotten Tomatoes even before its release but the first reactions to it are here and it looks like the movie is so good, it's bound to shut all the trolls up. Yes, I'm going to ignore the fact a lot of people have already seen the movie - just like I am ignoring the fact that a few people have also already watched 'Avengers: Endgame' - and we're going to focus on how people are saying that Brie Larson has killed it! The movie acts as an origin story for Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel and it'll be great to be introduced to her character before 'Endgame' because we all know how important she will be in that movie. Remember that end credit scene from 'Infinity War'? Coming back to the movie, here are all the positive reactions it has already gotten. #CaptainMarvel has a great '90s sci-fi vibe w/ a tone unlike any other Marvel movie, really. It's retro & trippy, mysterious & dorky. It's funny in surprising places & badass in all the right places. It remains entertaining because it's always changing. It's got the right stuff pic.twitter.com/o7AvqYY63x — Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) February 20, 2019 I'm already pumped! Love the cat, love Sam Jackson, LOVE Ben Mendelsohn, but honestly I'm calling Lashana Lynch as MVP. She brings an emotional weight to the film that is needed and transforms the entire movie upon arrival. Definitely need to see more of her#CaptainMarvel pic.twitter.com/QeEzUBM8O1 — Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) February 20, 2019 Yes, of course. Fans of #CaptainMarvel comics are going to love the movie. Plain and simple. — Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) February 20, 2019 Only 90s kids will know. #CaptainMarvel is (takes deep 90s breath) TOTALLY AWESOME. Never related to a Marvel character quite like Carol. She's the stubborn witty 90s kid I like to think I am. pic.twitter.com/H6Q9s90KHA — Ash Crossan (@AshCrossan) February 20, 2019 Everyone loves the cat too. The future of the MCU gets even brighter adding #CaptainMarvel to the mix. Really fell for @brielarson's sass, strength & energy in the role. Same with @LashanaLynch too! Ben Mendelsohn is A+ casting as Talos. And yes, Goose is a scene stealer. 2nd viewing can't come soon enough. — Perri Nemiroff (@PNemiroff) February 20, 2019 Everyone loves weird, don't they? CAPTAIN MARVEL isn't what I expected based on marketing. It's pretty much an “all in” cosmic space movie. Also, it's a lot weirder than I expected. Ben Mendelsohn is awesome as Talos. — Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) February 20, 2019 Which Nirvana song? I need to know! I can't get over how great Ben Mendelsohn is. I was worried he was just going to be one of those Marvel villains with alien makeup, but that's not the case at all. This movie doesn't work without him. — Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) February 20, 2019 Understandable. And in news that is very true to my brand, I would die for Goose the cat. #CaptainMarvel — Devan Coggan (@devancoggan) February 20, 2019 Tweets that keep me going. #CaptainMarvel: Well, Thanos is fucked. — Angie J. Han (@ajhan) February 20, 2019 Honestly, here for it. My kingdom for a Nick Fury & Goose buddy comedy #CaptainMarvel — Angie J. Han (@ajhan) February 20, 2019 So much excitement. Just out of #CaptainMarvel. So many fun surprises I didn't expect + new (and old?) characters to love. — Kara Warner (@karawarner) February 20, 2019 Is it a buddy cop movie or a superhero movie? #CaptainMarvel is a great origin story. Brie's buddy cop chemistry with @SamuelLJackson is so much fun and her relationship with Lashana Lynch is the real heart of it. Ben Mendelsohn and the cat both steal the show. — Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) February 20, 2019 Really excited for the soundtrack now. I FUCKING LOVED #CAPTAINMARVEL Its very different than most of the MCU films and so very 90s. It's funny and fun and super empowering. It made me feel proud to be a woman. Also, as a 90s teen, the soundtrack....oh, the soundtrack ⤠— Yolanda Machado (@SassyMamainLA) February 20, 2019 Welcome, Carol. Captain Marvel is a blast! Has some cool surprises that I definitely didn't see coming, and the mystery/origin it weaves is engaging and fun. Brie Larson is awesome, and makes a fantastic first step into the MCU #CaptainMarvel pic.twitter.com/oqrRtgDQrp — Eric Eisenberg (@eeisenberg) February 20, 2019 One of our favourites of all time? Wow. Captain Marvel is everything that I hoped it would be. It feels completely unlike any other Marvel film. A unique and fresh take on an origin story that feels new. Brie Larson is fantastic as Carol Danvers. This is one of my favorite Marvel movies of all time. #CaptainMarvel pic.twitter.com/0ou7HU93MY — Scott Menzel (@TheOtherScottM) February 20, 2019 It's got everything going. #CaptainMarvel opens with a very touching Stan Lee tribute that Marvel fans will love. pic.twitter.com/yXDScRwiwW — Anna Klassen (@AnnaJKlassen) February 20, 2019
