  1. Earlier this year, Roger Federer made the announcement that he does not require the length of rest that he usually takes around this time and that he will be playing the clay season of 2019. This meant that after a four-year absence, he was set to finally compete in Roland Garros. Federer began his clay season with strong tournaments in Madrid and Rome getting sufficient match practice for the Roland Garros. He entered the tournament fresh and looking like his usual glorious self. He breezed through his initial rounds, oozing class and setting the clock back to a Roger Federer that was calm, composed and lethal. He did not drop a single set until he met his fellow countryman Stanislas Wawrinka in the quarter final which he won 3-1. Twitter/@rolandgarros Then came the overwhelming challenge of world no. 2 and tournament favourite Rafael Nadal, who is unarguably the greatest player on the surface and whose rivalry with Federer is the stuff of legend. The build-up to the match was of epic proportions, but unfortunately, it failed to live up to its billing. This was not necessarily due to a dip in Federer's form, who by no means played a poor match, but due to the man on the other side of the net. Federer may have played a good match, but Rafa, on this surface, plays an entirely different sport. One of the widely accepted truths of the world of sport is that one of the hardest tasks is beating Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros, and this rang true throughout the entire match as the 11-time champion made Federer struggle and adapt throughout the game. If Nadal required any help at all, the weather played spoilsport for Federer, as the overwhelming wind currents had a huge effect on service and rallies, complimenting Rafa's style of grind, spin and margins. Federer had to both figuratively and literally, weather the storm. Federer, known for his elegance and class and known to play tennis without a hair out of place, was made to grind, grunt and groan throughout the first two sets which ended 6-3 and 6-4 in Rafa's favour respectively. Reuters Till this point, the match remained a contest. With several points remaining in the balance, Nadal just seemed to have the edge over his long-time rival. But beyond this, the match carried out as a mere formality and Nadal wrapped up the third set 6-2 to book a place in the final. Federer's tournament up to this point had been marvellous, and, on the day, he simply met a better opponent, more suited to the surface. This cannot be considered a lamentable tournament or performance by Federer as he defied expectations by simply setting up this highly-anticipated semi-final, after a four-year absence from this event and surface. After the match the Swiss ace admitted in his press conference that he defied expectations by reaching this stage, before heaping praise on the 'King of Clay'. “There's nobody who play(s) remotely close to him. It's just amazing how he plays from deep and bounces back and forth from the baseline,” he said. Nadal too, was all praise for his opponent. “It's incredible to play Roger here. Congratulations to Roger. He's probably the best player in history for me,” the Spaniard claimed. Twitter/@rolandgarros Nadal will now go on to play the winner of the semi-final which will be continued between Novak Djokovic and Dominic Thiem today for a whooping 12th title in Paris. The match between Djokovic and Thiem took the brunt of the bad weather conditions and was abandoned at one set a piece, with Thiem having achieved a break, early in the third. As for Federer, fans are left to ponder whether they will ever see him play on clay again. But if this is goodbye, no matter how unfortunate, by no means should Federer bid farewell without his head held high. Federer in Roland Garros 2019, showed why he is widely considered, by fans, peers and former pros alike, as the greatest of all-time.
  2. Lalhnehpuia Chhakchhuak is a young man who believes in putting in the effort in pursuit of greatness and backs his words up with his actions. In all of 16 years of his young life, Chhakchhuak has seen all kinds of struggles when it comes to following the game of basketball and the passion that comes along with it but does not know how to quit. He has based his work ethic on the principles of his idol, the five-time NBA champion, Kobe Bryant. Known for his 'never say die' attitude, better known as the 'Mamba Mentality', it taught the Los Angeles Lakers legend the need to go that extra mile to make big things happen and that is something Chhakchhuak swears by. View this post on Instagram Year 2 Vision A post shared by lalhnehpuia chhakchhuak (@hnehpuiaa) on Apr 2, 2019 at 5:38am PDT Having spent more than a year at the NBA Academy in Greater Noida, the Mizoram-born has had a tough childhood. Unable to speak Hindi, Chhakchhuak had trouble making friends at the Academy at first but the beauty of sports, any sport, is that it goes beyond the segregations of skin, caste, language or gender. Through the game of basketball and a little bit of help from the people around him, Chhakchhuak was well on his way to forming a special bond with the rest of the candidates who were selected from all over the country. When asked about how the Academy helped him, Chhakchhuak said: “The NBA Academy consists of some of the most talented coaches in the world who pay a lot of attention to a player's basics. The infrastructure here is on international standards and the way they teach us the minute details of the game is exceptional.” View this post on Instagram “Each of us have something to learn from others and something to teach in return”- Saint Augustine . . . . #mizobasketball A post shared by lalhnehpuia chhakchhuak (@hnehpuiaa) on Apr 15, 2019 at 4:17am PDT However, before the young athlete became a part of the Academy, Chhakchhuak had aims to play for his city, Aizawl and his state Mizoram, but due to the risk of occasional insurgency attacks and the lack of facilities to promote the game there, he could not pursue his dream back home. Luckily for him, Lalhnehpuia took birth in a pro-basketball family with his mother a player herself and his father, the head of the Mizoram Basketball Association and it is because of the support of his parents, Lalhnehpuia was able to make it to the academy. However, no matter how far away from home he may be, he remembered the values and the importance of maintaining balance that his mother, who was also his very first coach, had taught him. View this post on Instagram Reunited after 3 years. Gcs 2016 batch A post shared by lalhnehpuia chhakchhuak (@hnehpuiaa) on May 1, 2019 at 6:30am PDT In the latest class 10th boards, Lalhnehpuia was able to get a total of 91% and the entire credit behind him becoming such an allrounder must go the mother and the NBA Academy. “I feel privileged to have become a party of the NBA academy. Every day when I get up, I feel thankful towards my parents, because of whom I am doing that one thing that I have always wanted to do and that is, play basketball,” Chhakchhuak says. Chhakchhuak desires to join the actual National Basketball Association one day and just like another Laker, Lebron James, wishes to dominate the court when he steps in.
  3. While most of our teenage years revolved around juggling and complaining about the after school hours labour our schools passed off as “homework”, or making fancy strategies to decimate the other team on the playground, recent times have shown a tremendous change in the kind of teenagers growing in our midst. Gone are the days when fun and games ruled the lives of teenagers (apart from truck-loads of studying), now young geniuses have replaced regular teenagers - making the likes of us feeling pretty insignificant. © Getty Images From setting up their own businesses, to winning international competitions and creating mind-boggling devices, these young minds have achieved extraordinary feats. Not only have they inspired millions of people but have also made Indians proud through their impeccable achievements. Akshat Singh, the kid who had first become famous for shaking a leg with his idol Salman Khan on the iconic song 'Hud Hud Dabangg', went on to charm people with his moves on multiple reality shows in India. Later, we saw him make India proud on the popular US show 'Ellen Degeneres Show', with his wit and talent. © Akshat Singh Come 2019, and the young 13-year-old has rocked the entire city of London with his 'golden buzzer' performance on 'Britain's Got Talent'. His stellar dance performance compelled the judges to give him a standing ovation, while the hosts went ahead and pressed the golden buzzer for him. Talking about these experiences Akshat told MensXP, “Very few people get the chance to represent their country on such global platforms. I got the chance to make my nation, my parents and my school proud which makes me feel very lucky and happy.” © Akshat Singh Currently in class 9th, Akshat works hard to manage his studies and his passion, but he has no complaints about it. He says, “I usually study while travelling and between shows, but my only motive is to make others happy(through my work). I wish to become an actor in the future and want to tell others that nothing is impossible in life if you work hard and believe in yourself.” Merely a teenager, but Akshat's words of wisdom will leave you speechless. What's more, we shall soon be able to watch Akshat's performance on 'Britain's Got Talent' on Colors Infinity. But before we can do that, take a look at these other 4 Indian child prodigies who have made India proud globally. 1. Lydian Nadhaswaram © Twitter 13-year-old Lydian Nadhaswaram is a magician pianist and a child prodigy from Chennai. Lydian recently won the 'The World's Best' global talent contest and won a prize of 1 million dollars! Judges couldn't see his fingers move over the piano as Lydian played 280 beats per minute, and later increased his speed to 325 beats per minute, leaving both the judges and the rest of the world stunned by his talent. 2. Tanmay Bakshi © Twitter All of 15 years, Tanmay Bakshi is a well-known, self-taught coder & application developer who set out on this adventure at a tender age of 5. Tanmay is currently the World's Youngest IBM Watson Programmer & CEO, as well as the youngest Indian Artificial Intelligence expert based in Canada. 3. Aravindh Chithambaram © Twitter Touted as India's upcoming “Vishwanathan Anand”, Aravindh overcame staggering financial difficulties to become a grandmaster at the age of 15. At the age of 14, Aravindh was awarded International Master by FIDE, making him a star Indian chess player worthy of international recognition. 4. Harshwardhansinh Zala © Twitter Ahmedabad's pride, 16-year-old Harshwardhansinh is known for designing a drone named 'EAGLE A7' which is not only capable of detecting landmines, but can also destroy them. The drone can help minimize the risk of losing human lives during battles. He is the founder and CEO of Aerobotics 7 which aims to create 'smart technologies for a better world'.
  4. An integral part of Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) over the years, Kieron Pollard hasn't quite come to the party as far as the ongoing season is concerned. While the likes of Andre Russell, Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo have made an impact, Pollard has struggled to get going in the initial stage of the tournament. The right-handed batsman couldn't score more than 21 runs as Mumbai succumbed to a 37-run loss in their opening match. While Mumbai bounced back in the second match with a six-run win over Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Pollard was only able to add a six-ball five to his team. The big West Indian's struggles continued in the third match where he was dismissed for a nine-ball seven against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). Twitter/@IPL Struggling with the bat and not getting a chance to bowl, Pollard's batting slump attracted immense criticism, with the cricket pundits suggesting he should be dropped for the crucial tie against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on 3rd April. But, Rohit Sharma and Mumbai's team management continued to trust Pollard and the Trinidadian didn't disappoint. Repaying the faith of his captain, Pollard was part of a carnage that was finished by swashbuckling Hardik Pandya. While the West Indies cricketer slammed a seven-ball 17, Pandya ran riot during his eight-ball 25. The duo hammered Dwayne Bravo all around the park to score a staggering 29 runs off the final over. That was something Impossible Only this man can pull Something like this The Name is Kieron Pollard ð¥#MIvCSK #CricketMeriJaan pic.twitter.com/RvwGXsxnHL — RaijinAntony #MI ⤠(@RaijinAntony10) April 3, 2019 If his batting silenced the critics, Pollard's absolute blinder of a catch during Chennai's chase further enhanced his reputation as a key contributor to the Mumbai brigade. In the fifth over, the 31-year-old was stationed at the point boundary when Suresh Raina slapped Jason Behrendorff's length ball ferociously in his direction. Wow ð¥ð¥ à¤à¤ लà¤à¤¾ दॠà¤à¤ à¤à¤à¤ªà¥à¤à¤² मà¥à¤ pic.twitter.com/zxlD9bGuro — Devendra nagar ð®ð³ (@Devendr39642732) April 3, 2019 With the ball travelling at high pace, Pollard barely had any time to assess its height and realise it was going over his head. But, timing his jump to perfection, the Mumbai all-rounder produced enough airtime (something that would surely make Michael Jordan feel proud) that it allowed him to pluck the ball in thin air during an incredible one-handed effort. While Mumbai brought an end to Chennai's three-match winning streak after an emphatic 37-run triumph, Pollard's unbelievable fielding effort earned him plaudits on the social media. Helps to be tall!

  5. I feel Lilly Singh is one of the OG YouTubers and while a lot of them have become very irrelevant now, iiSuperwomanii is still giving everyone original content and that too on top of getting her own 'Late Night' show. Yes, I know she's Canadian and not Indian but she's still desi - and fully embraces that - and it's a win for us also okay, thanks. Coming back to her videos, she just released a video that could end Bollywood. Not really, but it's pretty great. So, she reimagined a few Bollywood songs as raps and changed the lyrics up to make them so relatable, it's uncanny. Starting off with 'Choli Ke Peeche', she raps about body positivity and self-love. And, that dig at Fair and Lovely just made my day. Next comes 'All Is Well' and a rap about mental health and a lot of desi problems. Obviously, this had to be there. Last song was 'Aankh Maarey' and she turned it into a Bi-Anthem and it's so beautiful to see that. And, yes she did make the 'one more remix' joke. Here's the video: As soon as it released, people coudn't stop raving about it, obviously, because it's just so great. For sure. this is insane oh my god. besides all the amazing acting, rapping, production and editing, THE MESSAGE. the underlying messages!! you're a genius @IISuperwomanII one of your best videos for sure. https://t.co/lTiu2WkVMQ — ð¼ðªð½ð¿ð²ð´ðª â¡ (@singhxstark) March 28, 2019 So original.

  6. While India is on a roll from one scientific invention to the other, we have some kids from IIT Madras stealing the show! Elon Musk's Hyperloop Technology concept took an amazing spin when a team from IIT Madras competed in the Hyperloop Pod competition held every year and reached the finals, making them the only Asian team to do so! © YourStory If you're wondering what Hyperloop Technology actually is, it's an advanced technique that could revolutionise travel in the future. The concept was developed by Elon Musk back in 2013 through his space exploration firm called 'SpaceX' and since then, many companies and firms have been working on strengthening this technology. When the competition was held this year, a student team from IIT Madras made it to the finals after they developed a prototype Hyperloop pod called 'Avishkar Hyperloop' that would take 25 minutes to travel from Chennai to Bengaluru. © YouTube The competition had 1500 teams from all over the world who were trying to create the fastest 'pod' or a travelling vessel for the entire concept. Their aim was quite specific to build the pod though. All they had to keep in mind was that their pod attained the maximum speed and correspondingly it had comparative deceleration. Other than that, the participants were allowed to go as crazy creatively as they pleased. As 'Avishakar Hyperloop' are amongst the top 21 finalists, they'd be visiting the 'SpaceX' facility in California in July 2019 to test their prototype in a more relatable environment aka the hyperloop tunnel. © YourStory The IIT team from Madras has managed to develop an achievable prototype that will in all probability be a success as well. Suyash Singh, the founder and the head of the project claims that the pod will be able to achieve 400 to 450 KMPH during the finals and we're super ecstatic about it. The team consisting of graduates and PhD scholars has decided to use a linear induction motor, while the system will be backed by a high-power battery pack. As for the deceleration part, the team is planning on using pneumatic brakes. The pod also runs on four wheels in a single race track and at the final demonstration, the team will have to make the pod run within a one-mile-long vacuumed Hyperloop tunnel. But before the finals, the team will be allowed to test run it to make any final refinements a week prior to the actual event. "Laying the foundation for an indigenously developed hyperloop system for India will take a few years; only after that, will it be tested on the tracks. We believe the team has a long way to go and we expect the student team to be involved till the hyperloop competition is held." Ankit, the co-head of the project told a popular publication. © Facebook Team Avishkar Hyperloop Interestingly enough, all the other teams shortlisted for the finals are returning finalists, while India has made it in for the first time, without any other Asian country to compete with. The total budget for the Avishkar Hyperloop was Rs. 1 crore, which was mostly raised through crowdfunding, in-house funding and via tech companies. © Twitter Well, while we wonder if the world is really shrinking, we're really proud of team 'Avishkar Hyperloop' and we hope they do an astounding job in sunny California in July 2019.
  7. On days when Sushant Singh Rajput is not busy impressing us with his performance or working for the welfare of the society, the actor is busy entertaining his millions of followers with his goofy and funny antics on social media. It won't be wrong to say that his Instagram account is a goldmine of inspiration, entertainment, humour, and all things amazing and this video is one of the gemstones we found. © Instagram Sushant is currently working on his upcoming film 'Chhichhore' and after the pack up, he decided to recreate 'Koi Mil Gaya'. Not the one where Hrithik Roshan puts his life at stake to send Jadoo back home. We're talking about the song where Shah Rukh Khan shows off his kickass electric-guitar skills (without actually playing it) and impressing Rani Mukherjee, Kajol and hundreds of girls in the crowd. via GIPHY He was joined by his co-star Naveen Polishetty who is known for his monologue in AIB web series, 'Honest Engineering Campus Placements'.

Well, we don't know about Shah Rukh Khan, but Jadoo will be proud of your performance.
  8. Over the years, the concept of women empowerment has been soaring in the sporting arena, making female athletes touch spheres of greatness in every aspect. While a lot of male athletes are earning in crores from their athletic careers, female stars like PV Sindhu have also matched up, for example bagging a Rs. 50 cr. deal with Li Ning is a massive accomplishment for an athlete so young. Talking of Women's Day, here are a few top female athletes of our country who have made our nation proud with their achievements: 1. Jhullan Goswami © Instagram/smriti mandana Jhullan Goswami, a world-class allrounder who has contributed to the Indian Women's cricket for more than a decade now and continues to be a valuable asset for her side. Her number one rank in the ODI format, that too at the age of 36, is itself a testimony to that. Starting off from the age of 15, Goswami has been an inspiration to many young talents around the globe. Earning laurels such as the ICC Women's Cricketer Of The Year, Fastest Bowler, Arjuna Award and Padma Shri, Jhullan stands out to be as one of the biggest stars in Indian Sports. 2. Mary Kom © Reuters “Do not say you're weak, because you are a woman,” a statement given by Mary Kom proves she's a force to be reckoned with. Being the only woman to win the World Amateur Boxing Champion for a record sixth time, she faced gender discrimination at some point of time, to which she handed a k.o and moved on. The fact that 'Magnificent Mary' gave birth to twins in 2007 and then to another son in 2013, and then went ahead to defy all naysayers by making a magnificent comeback to her winning ways, proves her mettle. The nation is proud to have such a fierce warrior. 3. Saina Nehwal © Reuters The former World no.1 in women's badminton is another star of our country who has constantly been a role model for many upcoming female athletes. Kicking off at the age of 16 as the U-19 National champion, Nehwal has never bothered to look back and has been strong in her journey till now. Winning over 24 world titles in her journey so far, the shuttler has inspired people at every step of her life. We hope she goes on to win many more laurels for herself and for the country too. 4. Smriti Mandana © Instagram/@Smriti Mandana Smriti Mandana is yet another Wonder Woman in the Indian Women's cricket team. Taking inspiration from her role-model Jhullan Goswami, Madana has out-performed everyone in recent times, bagging the ICC Women Cricketer of the year and ICC ODI Player of the year awards this year. The 22-year-old herself faced a lot of discrimination in her early days as she was not given admission in any coaching academy just because of her gender. But her parents were the ones who made a proper pitch just for her to practice, believed in her and helped her to reach where she is today. 5. PV Sindhu © Twitter/@pv sindhu PV Sindhu, another superstar in the International Badminton circuit, has worked her way to the top of the Indian sports industry. Being the true example of a star, she has not only excelled in her field but has also given tough competition to many male athletes. Soon after Indian skipper, Virat Kohli signed an eight-year endorsement contract with Puma for around 100 crores, Sindhu also raked in a massive 50 crore deal with Li-Ning for mere four years. Adding to her laurels, she became the first woman to co-pilot Tejas in a recently held Aero India Show.
  9. Although The Great Khali's World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) days expired way back in 2015, the fact that he represented India on such a grand stage for so long and even won the World Heavyweight Championship by eliminating stars like Batista and Kane in 2007, only adds to his success as an in-ring performer. A byproduct of Khali's immense success with WWE was the number of movie deals the 'Punjabi Playboy' got to sign. We are talking about big-budget movies working alongside renowned actors like Steve Carell and Adam Sandler. What is even more amazing and praiseworthy is that fact that Khali even ended up doing a French film (which might even be the best one he has done till date). Here are four international movies The Great Khali was a part of: 1. Get Smart Let's begin with the movie that gave Khali the most amount of on-screen time. In one of the greatest action-comedy films of all time, Khali played the role of Dalip, the Indian bodyguard of villain Seigfried (Terence Stamp), who is going through a tough divorce. One of the biggest scenes of the movie involves Khali skydiving off a plane in pursuit of protagonist Maxwell Smart (Steve Carell) and Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway). 2. Longest Yard In this mega-starrer, Khali plays the role of a convict named Turley spending his sentence in a maximum security prison. Motivated and coached by Paul 'Wrecking' Crewe (Adam Sandler), Turley decides to play from Crewe's team in an American football match against the prison guards. Khali's funniest moment comes when Crewe admits to sabotaging the prisoners' game against the guards and Turley says: “I'm glad you're back, now I don't have to stab you.” Yikes! 3. MacGruber In the quest of saving America from a crazy terrorist who's somehow got his hands on a nuclear warhead, ex-special force MacGruber (Will Forte) forms an unusual team of extraordinary men. Teaming up with the likes of Kane, Big Show and Mark Henry, The Great Khali plays the role of a car mechanic who is one of the members of Macgruber's special team. 4. Sur La Piste Du Marsupilami Based on the 1952 comic book character called Marsupilami, a mythical animal, the 2012 French film revolves around reporter Dan Geraldo (Alain Chabat) and his adventure to discover the creature. Amidst his adventure, Geraldo, along with fellow traveller Pablito Camaron (Jamel Debbouze), gets into some trouble and is put in a small jail with Bolo (Khali) who gives them the beating of their life. What's the best part about the giant's character? His voice!
  10. It was a big day for the Indian Air Force at Aero India 2019, as India's very own self-made fighter jet whizzed through the sunny skies demonstrating India's military prowess and strength. Called the Light Combat Aircraft or LCA Tejas, the fighter jet is all set to join our forces guarding the skies as it was given the nod of operational clearance to be included in the Air Force. Unveiled for the public yesterday at the Aero India 2019 show, CEMILAC presented the weaponised jet's operational clearance certificate to Marshal Birender Singh Dhanoa, Chief of Air Staff, at the ceremony.

Additionally, "LCA Tejas performed air-to-ground attacks and air-to-air refuelling at IAF's Vayu Shakti air display at Pokhran in Rajasthan on February 16," Marshal Dhanoa told the media.

Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat who took a sortie in Tejas, said thus sharing his experience on flying the jet, “flight in LCA Tejas was an experience of a lifetime. From what I could witness, avionics are very good, it's targeting is very good. It's a wonderful aircraft if it gets added to inventory it will increase our air power."

The formation also honoured Wing Commander Sahil Gandhi, who lost his life after a mid-air collision during the rehearsals for Aero India air show just a day before the ceremony. They did pay a fitting tribute. The missing man formation at #Aeroindia2019. pic.twitter.com/teBST43gg9 — Meghna Girish (@megirish2001) February 20, 2019
  11. The early hours of 21st February had sports fans on the edge of their seats. While everyone was waiting for the pulsating clash between Atletico Madrid and Juventus in the UEFA Champions League clash, actual carnage was happening somewhere else. The first One-Day International (ODI) between West Indies and England in Barbados was witnessing the return of Chris Gayle. And, there was no shortage of entertainment. After making his intentions pretty clear in the pre-match interview, the 'Universe Boss' stayed true to his word as he bludgeoned the England bowling attack to all parts of the ground. The Jamaican marauder slammed a blistering 135 which included three fours and 12 sixes. Owing to his ability to clear the ropes, Gayle also surpassed Shahid Afridi to record most number of sixes in international cricket. © AP The left-hander's breathtaking knock powered the hosts to a formidable total of 360 runs. But, if Gayle stole the limelight early on, the pivotal hundreds by Jason Roy (123) and Joe Root (102) ensured England - on the back of a six-wicket win - etched their name in the history books with the highest successful run-chase in ODI cricket. While the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown witnessed multiple individual brilliances that had cricket fans in awe, but there was one unlikely candidate whose particular shot became the talking point on social media. With the Windies already amassing 345 runs with one over to go, the instructions for the batsmen - Ashley Nurse and Devendra Bishoo - in the middle were quite predictable - score as many runs as possible. But, while everyone would've expected Nurse to play the big shots and improve their already-intimidating total, Bishoo surprised everyone with a gem of a shot. Did that really just happen a NUMBER 10 Bishoo batsmen just switch hit Adil Rashid for 6! How cricket has changed!?!? ð #WIvENG pic.twitter.com/7aOG9nkckN — James (@Surreycricfan) February 20, 2019 After taking a couple of singles on the first two deliveries of the final over, the West Indies spinner produced a spectacular 'switch hit' off Adil Rashid. Flaying his premeditated shot, Bishoo smashed the England spinner from outside the off-stump to send the ball sailing over deep point for a big six. Such was the timing of his shot that the normal-looking stroke resulted in the maximum. Bishoo's unbelievable hit helped the Windies to equal the record for the most number of sixes in an ODI innings and, later, took social media by storm. Bowlers after seeing this. pic.twitter.com/3vzR4KY1QJ — Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) February 20, 2019 Clever batting though knew rashid would bowl googly so hitting with the turn , into to the wind and targeting smaller part of the ground. — Ash (@Ayadav1808) February 20, 2019 Unbelievable — Super Joshi (@1SuperJoshi) February 20, 2019 can someone please explain Carlos Brathwaite what Carlos Brathwaite is supposed to do in international cricket?

  12. The Indian Army is the largest standing volunteer army in the world, which is not only known for its bravado and daredevilry when it comes to standing guard over their motherland, but its soldiers also inspire awe and unceasing respect for their selflessless service towards the nation. All of us feel strongly about these men and women who dare to face death in their line of duty. After all, we owe so much of the life we're living to them. It is their sacrifice and selfless passion to serve the country and its people, that allows us to enjoy the kind of safe and fun life we lead, day after day. © Twitter But how often do we stop to acknowledge their service and pay homage to their sacrifices? Well, a martyred soldier's 6-year-old daughter recalls her papa's lessons on the Indian Army, and it will remind you to take a moment and appreciate the numerous lives that constantly look death in the eye, so that innocent lives can be saved. © Honourpoint On 29th November 2016, Major Akshay Girish Kumar and Major Gosavi Kunal Mannadir were killed in an ambush in Nagrota, along with five other jawans. Two years since his passing away, Akshay's little daughter was seen recalling her father's teachings about the Indian Army in a video, which has since been actively circulated on social media. In the video Akshay's daughter Naina can be seen telling us what her father told her about the Indian Army. Check out the video here: A year after Akshay's martyrdom, Naina recollects conversations with her papa. Here she teaches us what 'Army is...' This random video captures innocence and faith. Love is an emotion. Her papa's love for the Army and Countrymen also stays within her. Jai Hind. @adgpi pic.twitter.com/kWecbp1Tax — Meghna Girish (@megirish2001) February 11, 2019 The faith and pride with which Naina recalls her dad's lessons, fills our hearts with joy.
  13. The Indian cricket team has been on a roll recently. Making and breaking precious world records while dominating over their competition in some of the greatest teams of the world like Australia and New Zealand, in every format of the game, the Men in Blue are stronger than ever. After winning their first ever Test series against Australia on their home turf and defeating the Kiwis in an ODI series in New Zealand for the first time in nearly a decade, the 'Josh' is high in Virat Kohli and his boys. But just like a proud parent, Indian head coach Ravi Shastri just cannot hide his happiness while talking about his team. Just yesterday, Shastri publicly advocated Kuldeep Yadav as India's number one spinner abroad after his impressive run in Australia and New Zealand which also included a five-wicket haul in the fourth Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground. India bowl Australia out for 300! Kuldeep Yadav led the attack with a brilliant five-wicket haul on Day 4 at the SCG. The hosts are still trailing by 322 runs and India enforce the follow-on.#AUSvIND LIVE â¬ï¸https://t.co/c2fCH8UcMc pic.twitter.com/M8kXGjiYnS — ICC (@ICC) January 6, 2019 "Already! He plays overseas Test cricket and he gets five wickets, so he becomes our primary overseas spinner. Going ahead, if we have to play one spinner, he is the one we will pick," he told Cricbuzz. And today, the coach compared India's greatest batsman of the new generation, Virat Kohli to the timeless Sir Vivian Richards. After Kohli became the first batsman to win the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for ICC Men's Cricketer of the Year, ICC Test Cricketer of the Year as well as ICC Men's ODI Cricketer of the Year in a single year last month, Shastri has gone gaga over the man. "Virat Kohli is a guy who is as dominant as Sir Vivian Richards" – Ravi Shastri says the India captain is the 'closest' he's seen to the Windies legend. READ â¬ï¸ https://t.co/JFENN2gcBc pic.twitter.com/sBFdbRATPK — ICC (@ICC) February 6, 2019 “Here is a guy who is as dominant as Sir Vivian Richards. The closest I have seen to the great man. Virat is in your face, he wants to dominate and has a work ethic like no one else. Whether it comes to discipline, training, sacrifice or self-denial, it is unbelievable,” the fanboy in Shastri expressed to Cricbuzz. Shastri's has also shown love towards the team as a whole. “We're not the underdogs,” he had proudly acclaimed after the Test series win against the Aussies while also declaring that it was “as big, or even bigger” than the 1983 World Cup. Incredible effort by #TeamIndia to take a 2-1 lead, especially @Jaspritbumrah93 who has played an instrumental role in this win. He has gone from strength to strength in all formats of the game. Definitely one of the best in the world today. #INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/vweoHd0nEE — Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) December 30, 2018 Shastri has been known for making controversial comments more often than not but with the recent success the Indian cricket team is enjoying, we think he should be allowed to pour his heart out to his boys just like a proud dad would do. Know the feeling? Yeah, neither do we...
  14. Stupid and smart, at its extremes, are the two things that co-exist on the gym floor. There will be a guy who understands strength progression and would be tracking his training, whereas the other would be stacking plates on the bar for a squat PR, where the maximum movement he will achieve is his knee moving a bit. Funnily enough, the latter guys would happily post their videos on social media with the #neweeeknewpr (LOL). Keeping such guys in mind, here are a few things you shouldn't be proud of doing at the gym: 1. Leg Press PRs © YouTube Set 1 - 2 plates each side Set 2 - Add 3 more plates Set 3 - Add 2 guys Set 4 - Just hope you don't land at the hospital Leg press is the most common exercise that gives people a false sense of strength. Mainly because they hardly have any range of motion there. Annoyingly, some trainers promote this nonsense even when they know their clients cannot handle much weight. I've written a piece on it here 2. Ab Punches © Tnation I thought this stupidity had worn off until I saw it again recently. A guy doing hanging leg raises and his gym partner punching him when his legs came down! When doing leg raises, you're working on the function of spinal flexion. Punching is plain stupid. It doesn't make any sense. Oh, but what it does is increase your chances of injury. 3. Training Away To Failure © Thinkstock Images There is consistent data that shows that regular training to failure leads to: a. Impaired recovery b. Higher risk of injury c. Lesser gains d. Lesser adaptations to training Still, you will see bros shouting 'lightweight baby' and taking every set to failure. *facepalm* 4. Being Sore After Every Workout © Pixabay This is the USP that bro-splits have. Bro-split - 1 body part a day training. Guys who train this way will do 10 exercises for a body part and be sore to even move that body part for a week. How does that training make sense? The one that makes you feel disabled? And yes, there is data that shows that even when the number of sets and reps are equated, exercising the body part 2x a week results in greater strength and hypertrophy. 5. Running Like A Maniac On The Treadmill © YouTube If your goal is to build an impressive physique, weight training has to be your bread and butter. Not cardio. Then there are those who will run marathon distances on the treadmill. By doing this, you're just hurting your joints that will impact both your gains and health long term. Enjoy running? Do it outdoors. And yes, you should not only stop being proud of these 5 ridiculous things, but try and stop doing them completely.

  15. Football is a game, where good won't do it for you, you have to be great in every aspect of the game to come out on top. And, when it comes to the ongoing AFC Asian Cup, the margin for error, needless to say, is pretty thin. Following their first ever win in the Asian Cup history that came on the back of an emphatic 4-1 triumph over Thailand, the Indian football team found their next big challenge against hosts United Arab Emirates (UAE) – a side that is currently ranked 18 places higher than the 'Blue Tigers' in the FIFA charts. Raising the expectations of the fans back home, the upbeat Sunil Chhetri brigade was once again expected to put a strong performance if they intended to edge past the more proven and experienced UAE side in their own backyard. But, sadly for the Indian fans, Stephen Constantine's men succumbed to a 0-2 defeat in their second group game, but not without a fight. The first chance of the match arrived early in the 13th minute where Ashique Kuruniyan found himself in a one-on-one position with the opposition goalkeeper, only to be denied by him in the end. Chhetri almost got a breakthrough with a crucial header, but, once again, the UAE shot-stopper stood tall to deny the 'Blue Tigers'. In the first half, UAE, despite having the majority of the possession, couldn't dictate play because of India's strong midfield performance. Thus, there was no surprise to see India boasting more shots on target (3) against their opponents who could only manage one. But, the fact that the hosts converted their lone shot on target into a goal saw them taking the lead in the first half. © AP The opening goal came in the 41st minute by Khaflan Mubarak, where UAE took advantage of India's fragile defence. Pouncing on a long pass, Mubarak left the Indian defenders in disarray before unveiling a powerful shot that went straight into the top-right corner. UAE's joy would have been short-lived had Chhetri not missed a golden chance by inches in the 43rd minute. Despite getting splitting UAE's backline, Chhetri just couldn't get the direction he would have ideally wanted to put it past the goalkeeper – one of the rare chances that India would come to rue later. Despite trailing 0-1 in the first half, India's strong performance had their fans believe that was still a chance for their side to make a comeback in the second half. And their intent was further personified by Constantine's second-half change Jeje Lalpekhlua who immediately made India's intentions clear by coming really close to scoring an equaliser in the 53rd minute. © AP The likes of Udanta Singh and Sandesh Jhingan, too, came close to level the proceedings for India. But, rather than finding the back of the net, the duo, following in the footsteps of their teammates earlier, could only manage to improve India's shots tally. And, in the end, it was Ali Makhout's cool finish in the 88th minute that sealed the game and crucial three points for 'The Abyads'. Reflecting on the pulsating clash, the Indian captain said: “It was a tight game. UAE are a good side, and they converted their chances. When you get your chances, you got to convert them. If we could have taken ours, it could have been different. We are still in the running. As a team, we are united and we are ready to fight. And that's what we are going to do against Bahrain. While India would surely rue the missed opportunities in the match, their performance was still worthy of praise and adulation. For the better part of the match, they had the hosts by the scruff of their neck but just couldn't improve the 2-0 scoreline for their showing. Following their triumph over India, the UAE team currently leads Group A with four points to their name. On the other hand, India find themselves in the second spot with just a point separating them from the group leaders. With one game left in the group stage, while UAE, seeking only a draw to progress ahead, will be seen locking horns with Thailand on 14th January, Chhetri-led India, on the same day, will face Bahrain in a bid to secure all three points to stay in contention of making the cut for the knockout stage.
  16. Soaring high up in the sky, maneuvering a loaded, uber-hefty aircraft under your able hands, and zooming around the sky fighting enemy planes in the sky, is a dream many young boys come to live for. However, the same cannot be said for young girls, who usually do not even consider being fighter pilots on most perfect days. © TOI But this scenario might be changing real soon because young women are now constantly proving that sky is indeed the limit when it comes to dreaming big, and living it too. One such stellar example is that of Priya Sharma from Rajasthan, who decided to go all out and turn her dream into a reality by donning that hat of India's 7th woman fighter pilot, in the otherwise male dominated industry. © TOI Not just that, Priya has now also become the 3rd woman fighter pilot to come out of the western state. As per reports, out of the 139 cadets that graduated from the Indian Air Force academy in Dundigul, only 35 were fighter pilots and Priya happened to be the only woman amongst the lot! It was her father's posting at the Air Force station in Karnataka that first sowed the seed of becoming a fighter, and well there was no going back on it with her graduation now! © BCCL This is a proud moment for our nation, but more so for the young girls and women, who had so far stuck to more “regular” career choices in this field. © Panchayat Times Earlier with Avani Chaturvedi who made history by flying solo on a fighter jet, and now with Priya joining the league of female fighter pilots in the country, we can only wish them greater successes in the future.
  17. Arguably one of the most popular and iconic cricketers in the country, Mahendra Singh Dhoni will probably go down in history as one of the greatest contributors to Indian cricket. If his blistering middle-order batting aided his team in pressure situations, Dhoni's commendable leadership allowed the Indian team to scale new heights in international cricket. And then, there is his unbelievable wicket-keeping skills. His ability to influence a match in different ways is what eventually allowed him to become the pride of the nation. His unorthodox style has struck a chord with cricket fans across the globe. While he has already retired from the longest format and his fans have been surely missing him during India's ongoing tour of Australia, cricket enthusiasts got a glimpse of MSD at the Mzansi Super League (MSL) - thanks to Rashid Khan. While Dhoni himself wasn't playing in the South African T20 league, the Afghanistan cricketer reminded everyone of the former Indian captain by successfully emulating his signature 'Helicopter Shot' during the clash between Durban Heat and Tshwane Spartans. ðððððð @MSL_T20 @durban_heat ðð»ðð» pic.twitter.com/0yfE6NnQWt — Rashid Khan (@rashidkhan_19) December 13, 2018 Chasing a competitive total of 188 runs, the Durban franchise suffered early setbacks but Albie Morkel's breathtaking innings kept them in the hunt. With 50 runs required off 23 deliveries, Rashid came out to bat after the dismissal of Keshav Maharaj on the first delivery of the 17th over. With his side desperately in need of some boundaries, the Afghan cricketer got into the act right on the very first delivery he faced. The 20-year-old smacked Lutho Sipamla for a towering six over the deep-midwicket by successfully pulling off Dhoni's 'Helicopter Shot'. Though Rashid couldn't do much later as he was eventually dismissed on the third delivery he faced, the Afghan spinner surely made Dhoni and his fans proud by unleashing the 'Helicopter Shot'. Despite Rashid's dismissal, Morkel's sensational 28-ball 57 secured a thrilling two-wicket win for Durban.

  18. Over the years, Premier League has taught us many things. But, the most important lesson is: big-spending clubs don't like to lose. And, why would they? These giants, with less patience and more money, are doing everything. They're splurging big bucks on the managers, dishing out astronomical weekly wages to the players and then, there is some business aspect that needs to be taken care of as well. For these clubs, not winning or deriving favourable results, often leads to the sacking of the manager. Sans the sacking part, everything listed above has happened at the hallowed Old Trafford. But, their fortunes haven't improved (at least not as of now). You see, big clubs can buy mega-buck players and they can rope in shrewd tacticians as managers, but money will never teach them how to play together as a team, as a unit - a problem that has plagued United this season. For a team that has won 11 Premier League titles, Manchester United currently find themselves languishing at the seventh spot (14 points below their city rivals). And, the fact that Everton, a club much smaller in size and stature than United, is trailing the Red Devils by a point in the table sums up their season so far. © Reuters The United fans are bewildered with the team's ever-frustrating slump. The players are bemused with the coach's questionable tactics. And, the coach is entangled in a cold war with the club's top brass. For United, victories seem like a far-fetched dream - one that is capable of not only enticing the fans, but, as it turns out, the manager too. The frustrating 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace over the last weekend did push Man Utd and their fans over the edge, with Jose Mourinho publicly claiming that the clash against Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League was the last chance for their star players. With their reputation and last 16 berth on the line, Mourinho's men had a point to prove at the Old Trafford. But, there was a lot of frustration before the eventual relief. Lacking creativity in the midfield, and, belief and togetherness they need to challenge for titles and trophies, United rarely looked in control of the game. After Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini wasted good chances and the hosts appeared to have run out of ideas, Mourinho and a packed Old Trafford finally had a sigh of relief when the Belgian struck in the injury time - United's 21st effort at goal. © Reuters Fellaini's goal allowed United to secure a much-needed 1-0 win and their berth for the Round of 16 stage in Europe. For those who haven't followed United this season or are unaware of their troubles, Mourinho's reaction to Fellaini's last-gasp winner should sum up what it meant for the Red Devils and the Portuguese himself. 27.11.16: Jose Mourinho sent off for kicking an innocent water bottle 27.11.18: ðpic.twitter.com/vVqN75NTdQ — Full Time DEVILS (@FullTimeDEVILS) November 28, 2018 At the touchline, Mourinho resembled Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain who famously marked the end of particularly satisfying gigs, at times, just individual songs, by reducing his guitar to splinters against the nearest amp. While the United manager didn't have a guitar to dispose of, he perfectly channelled his inner rock god as he took out his emotion on a basket of bottles. Well, who needs a guitar when you can pull off a Nirvana moment with some water bottles. There hasn't been this much disdain for a watercarrier at Old Trafford since the great Eric Cantona meltdown when he was asked for his opinion on international teammate Didier Deschamps. While Rio Ferdinand claimed that it was an attempt to grab the limelight, Mourinho couldn't disagree more. "The ones who comment on football, not a lot of them have been on the touchline. For those who speak about expressing frustration on the bench I would invite them to come and sit there as a manager," he said.

  19. After blanking their opponents 3-0 in the T20 International (T20I) series, the Pakistan cricket team was busy giving New Zealand a run for their money in the One-Day Internationals (ODIs). Trailing 0-1 in the ODI series, Pakistan made a comeback to level the proceedings 1-1 before rain spoiled their chances in the third and final game. What awaited next was a stern test of their character, as Sarfraz Ahmed's men geared up for the three-match Test series against the Kiwis. And, the fact that Pakistan bowled New Zealand out for a mere 153 runs in the first innings, showed that they meant business. While Babar Azam and Asad Shafiq looked good with the willow in the first innings, the bowling masterclass of Hasan Ali and Yasir Shah ensured Pakistan needed just 176 runs to win the Test and take a 1-0 lead. © Twitter/@TheRealPCB Needing 139 runs with ten wickets in hand at the start of Day 4, Pakistan and their fans would have surely felt at ease against the Kiwis, who were probably ruled out of the game. But, neither the two playing sides nor any cricket pundit could have possibly anticipated what eventually unfolded during the day's play at the Sheikh Zayed stadium in Abu Dhabi. The fourth day's play was an apt reminder of the many run-chases Pakistan have barbecued over the years. Despite losing three wickets early on, Sarfraz's side rarely looked in trouble - courtesy a gritty 82-run partnership between Azhar Ali and Shafiq. But, some mediocre batting and a maiden five-wicket haul of debuting left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel handed New Zealand a thrilling, even unexpected, four-run win. With Pakistan botching away a run-chase yet again, the mood in their camp was understandably damp. But, at the same time, New Zealand's dressing room was buzzing with celebratory noise. For the Kiwis, it was undoubtedly a special win which called for an equally special celebration.

  20. India is on an all-time high when it comes to its indigenous productions and successes. The Indian Space research Organisation, better known as ISRO happens to be one such organisation that has done India proud on multiple occasions. And ISRO has done it all over again by successfully launching India's heaviest rocket Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mark III (GSLV-MkII), that was carrying communication satellite GSAT-29 from the rocket port in Sriharikota. It is being reported that GSAT-29 has been launched for better communication opportunities in remote areas. The GSLV-Mk III weighs 640 tons and was 43.4 metres in height.

Great work by the capable people at ISRO.
  21. Shah Rukh Khan is probably the most active 53-year-old on social media but, after all, he is a typical dad and can't help himself but post cute, adorable pictures of his kids online. Actually, most of his pictures are of his youngest son AbRam, as SRK loves to show off how cute he is. Yesterday, he shared a bunch of pictures of AbRam wearing a t-shirt with a rather interesting quote. View this post on Instagram For all the sons of the world...If your Mama is your Queen then there is no stopping you from being The Happy Prince. ( and an iPad loaded with games helps too ) A post shared by Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) on Nov 9, 2018 at 9:01am PST Don't forget the caption – “For all the sons of the world...If your Mama is your Queen then there is no stopping you from being The Happy Prince. ( and an iPad loaded with games helps too )” Well, we always knew AbRam was a prince, but we thought it was because he's the son of none other than King Khan. But, no there are more reasons and SRK summed it up perfectly. He posted the same picture on Twitter as well with a lot of people replying – obviously – but also comparing both him and his son. After all, like father like son.

But whatever, SRK is the typical dad showing off his cute kid on the internet and we're here for it.
  22. Bollywood cops taught us that everytime a gun is being fired, the gunshot sounds like 'dhishkiyaoon', but the UP cops taught us that the original sound is actually 'THAIN THAIN'. If you don't believe my words, check out this video of UP cop Manoj Kumar in action in Sambhal district. When the cops were chasing the criminals they realised their pistol got jammed. So to scare the criminals, the cop started shouting 'maaro maaro, ghero ghero' and 'thain thain' to scare the criminals. #WATCH: Police personnel shouts 'thain thain' to scare criminals during an encounter in Sambhal after his revolver got jammed. ASP says, 'words like 'maaro & ghero' are said to create mental pressure on criminals. Cartridges being stuck in revolver is a technical fault'. (12.10) pic.twitter.com/NKyEnPZukh — ANI UP (@ANINewsUP) October 13, 2018 The cop's 'presence of mind' make him an overnight sensation on social media and a fodder for viral memes as well, that we are still tripping over. While the internet was busy cracking jokes over the cop, who has now been nominated for a bravery award for his quick thinking and successfully catching the criminals, this guy was busy preparing a special surprise for every CS (Counter-Strike) fan out there. People who have spent hours playing 'Counter-Strike' will agree that its not just a game, its a cult, an obsession and an addiction that grows on you with each day. While we claim to be the biggest fans of this game, this YouTuber just took home the cake by mixing 'Counter-Strike' with the UP cop's 'thain thain'. This genius replaced all the gun sounds in the game with 'thain thain' and the result is priceless and hilarious. The guy even explained on Reddit how he did it, "I edited most of the sounds featured in the clip individually in audacity to replace with the game sound files and it can be a very time intensive process." Kudos to this guy for even thinking about something like this, let alone making it happen. People, as expected, areabsolutely in love with this, and at the same time, are impressed with his ingenuity. © Reddit © Reddit If a desi version of 'Counter-Strike' is ever created, this is how we want it to be.
  23. Do you remember what you were doing at the age of 10? Whatever it was, I can guarantee it wasn't anything close to winning the Wildlife Photographer of the Year award. Arshdeep Singh is just 10-years-old and he's already officially cooler than me. He won the exciting award for his photograph 'Pipe Owls' in the 10-years-and-under category. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition is organised by Britain's Natural History Museum. No wonder he won though, just look at how cool the picture he clicked is! © Natural History Museum There's obviously a story behind the picture as well. Arshdeep came across a spotted owlet popping its head out from an old waste-pipe while he was driving through Punjab's Kapurthala with his father. After asking his father to stop the car, he rested the camera on the half-open window of the car at eye level, and soon enough, a second owlet popped up and he captured the moment beautifully. I don't know exactly what happened, but it feels like the entire thing went something like this – View this post on Instagram wait for it #catsofinstagram #cats #thedailykitten #cutepetclub #bestmeow #myroommateisacat #catsofworld #instapet #petsofinstagram #kittens #9gagnoticeme A post shared by @ charlieisahoe on Sep 20, 2017 at 12:52pm PDT Turns out the photography talent runs in the family; Arshdeep's father is Randeep Singh, a well-known photographer. He's been around photography his whole life and started clicking pictures at the age of six and then ventured into the field of wildlife photography in 2012. Wait, there are more ways in which this little boy is cooler than us. His photographs have previously been featured in Lonely Planet UK, Lonely Planet Germany, Lonely Planet India, BBC Wildlife UK and more.
  24. The Lotus Make-Up India Fashion Week was as much about beards, as it was about fashion. Men's facial hair trends are always evolving, but our love for beards, clearly, is eternal. From a three-day-stubble to a full-fledged lumberjack beard, we got to see it all. Here is a list of the best beards we saw at the LMIFW, plus some pearls of beard-wisdom from their respective owners. 1. Model Dushyant Singh Raghuvanshi believes that maintaining a beard is not rocket science. He does two things regularly - oils his beard at night, and uses a beard serum in the morning. Plus, when he needs to go out and wants his beard to be in his desired shape, he uses some wax or gel. MensXP 2. According to FDCI Chairman Sunil Sethi, his beard is his identity. "Movember and no shave November started recently, but for me, it has been thirty years. A beard and a moustache is my signature style, and I'm happy that so many brands are now talking about beard care and beard grooming. A clean-shaven look may come in and go out from time to time when it comes to trends, but a bearded look will be up there, always. As far as maintaining my beard goes, it is my 'ghar ki kheti', and it has been giving me a good crop - year after year." MensXP 3. Photographer Yashasvi Sharma makes sure he doesn't dry up his beard up by washing it daily. He uses a beard wash every alternate day, and regularly nourishes his beard with a beard oil. He trims the edges once in a while to maintain the desired shape. MensXP 4. Narresh believes in professional help, and makes it a point to see his beard specialist once every two weeks. He trims his beard with a machine every 3rd or 4th day, and regularly uses beard oil to make sure his beard is soft, smooth, and nourished. MensXP 5. Yashdeep believes that beard care can be a cakewalk if you make sure you moisturize it regularly, and use a little bit of product to maintain the shape every time you step out. MensXP 6. Akshay is a professional model, and his beard is a prominent part of that. To take care of his beard, he regularly conditions it and uses a beard oil for the much-needed nourishment for his long beard. MensXP 7. Krishnendu believes in a no-fuss routine. He usually goes for a trim every Saturday and does a little bit of scrubbing at times for enhanced blood flow and good growth. MensXP 8. Mayank loves his stubble, something he says has been inspired by his father. He keeps it simple and makes it a point to go for a trim twice every week. MensXP 9. For Rishi Raj, maintaining his beard is the 'easiest thing in the world'. He says he doesn't have to do much at all, except trim or shave it twice or thrice in a week, depending on his mood. MensXP 10. For Akshay Sharma, it's all about the basics - regular trimming, using essential oils, and love for hair. MensXP We also asked celebrity hairstylist Rod Anker about the most important things to do when it comes to beard care. MensXP His answer was simple: keep reminding yourself to moisturize your beard, because it has a tendency to become dry, especially with the changing weather, and make sure you trim it regularly to maintain the shape.
