  1. Recently, Indian business tycoon Ratan Tata posted a picture of his younger self on Instagram which broke the internet as people started to realize the younger version of one India's biggest Industrialist, may as well have been a Hollywood star. This is also because if you take a look at the younger version of Mr Tata, you'll realize how the picture clearly suggests that cleaning up well can do a lot. And, especially, for Mr Tata, who stuck to basics especially when it came to his style game and made sure that even wardrobe staples like a basic crisp white shirt looked stunning on a regular day. Here's proof: View this post on Instagram I was going to post this yesterday, but I was then told about “throwbacks” and how they occur on Thursdays. So here is a throwback from my days in LA, not long before I happily returned to India. #throwbackthursday A post shared by (@ratantata) Post this picture, people just can't get over how good Ratan Tata looked in his time. For the uninitiated, Mr Tata is the great-grandson of Jamsetji Tata, the founder of Tata Group. He is also an alumnus of the Cornell University College of Architecture. After returning to India, he succeeded J. R. D. Tata upon the latter's retirement in 1991. During Mr Ratan Tata's chairmanship of 21 years, Tata Tea acquired Tetley and Tata Motors acquired Jaguar Land Rover and Tata Steel acquired Corus, this was done in an attempt to take Tata from a largely India-centric group into a global business brand. So, we scouted for rare pictures of Ratan Tata from his days in the US as a student to his early days in India when he was stepping into heading the Tata Industries. These pictures will convince you that he was definitely very handsome (still is ) and has been on top of his style game at all times. 1.

  2. Before you all bring up the story of the infamous Tata Nano explosion, take a step back. Especially along the last few years, Indian carmakers have made massive progress in developing cars that stand up to stringent international safety standards such as the British NCAP crash tests - a much needed safety regulation when Indiaâs roads see a staggering 400 accidents happen every single day, according to the Road Transport Ministry. Letâs take a look at some of the sturdiest, well-built and safest machines to roll out of our local factories. Mahindra XUV300 © Mahindra Group NCAP Rating: 5 Stars Currently the highest-scoring Indian vehicle on NCAP, the Mahindra XUV300 also became the first Indian car to hit 4 stars for children's safety on the test. It comes with a massive bevy of safety features, such as seven airbags, disc brakes on all four wheels, front parking sensors and heated ORVMs, on the top-spec variants. Tata Nexon © Reviewstories/Tata Motors NCAP Rating: 5 Stars Not only did the Tata Nexon score 4 stars on its debut test - the engineers behind it went back to the drawing board, improved their designs and returned to win Indiaâs first-ever 5-star rating from NCAP. The Nexon comes with a fortified steel frame for the cabin, ABS with EDB, dual front airbags, ISOFIX seat mounts and adjustable seatbelts. Tata Altroz © Drivetribe/Tata Motors NCAP Rating: 5 Stars Engineered on Tataâs new ALFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) architecture, the Altroz is Indiaâs first hatchback to win 5 NCAP stars - featuring dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and CSC, reverse parking sensors, ISOFIX, driver and co-driver seatbelt reminder, high-speed alert system and impact-sensing auto door unlock. Mahindra Marazzo © Drivetribe/Tata Motors NCAP Rating: 4 Stars Noted for its good performance during crash tests, the Marazzo performed quite decently with a score of 4 stars at the Munich NCAP tests and was noted for having particularly strong A-pillars up front. It comes standard with dual front airbags, ISOFIX anchors, ABS, front seatbelt pretensioners and a seatbelt reminder for the driver. Maruti Vitara Brezza © India.com/Maruti-Suzuki NCAP Rating: 4 Stars Finally, the Brezza. While Maruti isnât particularly known for exceptionally safe cars, this model performed surprisingly well at the NCAP tests, scoring an impressive 4 star rating - higher than any other offering from the brand. It comes with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX anchorages, front seat belts with pretensioners and a driver seatbelt reminder. View the full article
  3. Ever since Xiaomi's POCO F1 became a huge hit, people have been flooding Xiaomi with questions about the next POCO phone. Unfortunately, there was a lot of evidence suggesting that Xiaomi has ditched the brand and we won't be seeing any new phone from POCO. In fact, people had lost all their hopes when Xiaomi launched the Redmi K20 and the K20 Pro in India. There was no way Xiaomi was going to compete with their own device. But now, it's a new year, so we're pretty positive about the POCO F2. And thankfully, we have some evidence suggesting that the POCO F2 is happening after all. Yes, we now have some solid evidence that there could be a POCO F2 in 2020. As spotted by a Twitter user who goes by the handle @_the_tech_guy, Xiaomi has filed a trademark application for a device named POCO F2. Yes, check it out - #Xiaomi files trademark application for POCO F2 So the POCO series exists and POCO F2 is coming soon .....#xiaomi #pocoPhone #POCOF2 pic.twitter.com/3JDwplv9IJ — _the_tech_guy (@_the_tech_guy) January 11, 2020 The document is a clear indication that the successor is coming. And a similar trademark for "POCO" showed up right before the launch of POCO F1 as well, so we think we're very close to the launch. If it's really happening, then we think the phone will come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoC. However, it's worth making a note that the Snapdragon 865 is 5G chipset, which means the POCO F2 could be significantly expensive. But we're not sure about that just yet. The brand could very well launch the phone with a different chipset. © Akshay Bhalla/ MensXP Sadly, that's all we know about this phone currently. We hope to learn more about it very soon, so keep your eyes peeled for more details. View the full article
  4. FAISALABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan's mission to woo the Muttahida Quami Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) will prove fruitless, said Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) stalwart Rana Sanaullah on Sunday. The former Punjab law minister was addressing a rally when he made the statement. He cautioned the MQM-P from reverting to the coalition government, saying that if it does, the party "will go back" on its stance. He said the government did not have any policy hence it was not possible for them to mend fences with any party. Sanaullah's comments came a few hours after the MQM-P's Federal Minister for Information Technology and Telecommunication, Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, resigned. Siddiqui cited the government's inability to fulfill promises made to the MQM-P as the reason for parting ways with the federal cabinet. Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui resigns from federal ministry "We had promised the government to help with the formation of the government and we held our end of the deal. However, none of the promises made to us have seen any progress,” Siddiqui said while addressing a press conference in Karachi along with senior Muttahida Quami Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leaders in Karachi. “It is becoming increasingly difficult for me to remain a part of the federal cabinet as questions are being raised upon my presence in the cabinet,” he explained. Speaking about the agreement with the government, the MQM-P convener told the media that two agreements were made with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), one in Bani Gala, the other in the Bahadurabad, in the presence of Jahangir Tareen. Siddiqui said that they [MQM-P] had supported the federal government in every difficult phase but "injustice was still being done with Sindh". In response to a question regarding the ending of its alliance with the government, Siddiqui said, “We did not ask for the law ministry neither did we propose Farogh Naseem’s name. The two names that we had proposed for the ministry did not include [Farogh] Naseem’s name. The government had selected his [Farogh Naseem] name on its own.” Siddiqui denied that his decision had anything to do with the recent proposal of provincial ministries by Pakistan Peoples Party Chairperson (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Siddiqui in exchange for MQM-P's help in toppling the government. “This has nothing to do with PPP’s offer,” Siddiqui said.
  5. It was nothing short of a fairytale coming true when Meghan Markle got married to Prince Harry. Almost everyone across the globe seemed to be talking only about them. Fast forward to the present time and people are still talking about them. The world went into a mini shock when the Duke of Sussex Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle announced that they are stepping down from their roles as "senior royals". Their long note on social media, Prince Harry's friends sharing "anecdotes" about what could have possibly led to the exit and Madame Tussauds London moving their wax figures away from the royal family further fuelled the fire around what people are calling "Megxit". View this post on Instagram “After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” - The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA A post shared by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex (@sussexroyal) on Jan 8, 2020 at 10:33am PST How often do you see a man going against his family and leaving them behind to be with and protect his true love? The last time we saw it was in 2001 when Karan Johar's Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham was released starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. And that's exactly what people on social media were reminded of. Same energy: guy leaves his wealthy family and his inheritance cuz of love #Megxit #K3G pic.twitter.com/3rQxKSiPsD — Salokya Sarira (@SalazarSalokya) January 9, 2020 While the royal family is busy figuring out how to bring this crisis situation under control, desi people on social media can't help but think of Prince Harry and Meghan as the royal Rahul and Anjali. Now that we think about it, the energy is same though. People comparing Meghan-Harry to Rahul-Anjali's plot in K3G. Yup, can totally imagining Will going to Canada to get back his brother, dancing with Kate to You are my Soniya. Charles and Camilla joining in for Bole Chudiyaan and oh, and the Queen dies.

  6. For a really long stretch now, the Indian cricket team has been hosting a lot of international teams at home and have been dominating most of them ever since returning from the ICC World Cup 2019 after a disappointing exit. While it is a well known fact that defeating Virat Kohli and Co. and home is a mammoth task in itself, the Men in Blue haven't faced significant competition in the past five and a half months. But that was until now, as Aaron Finch and the Australian side visit our land for a three-ODI series starting Tuesday, January 14, 2020. When there are two great teams that are so dedicated and focused on winning & locking horns, sparks are bound to fly. Here's a look back at the five most talked-about controversies that took place between the two titans as they share a rich cricketing history over the years. 1. The Birth Of Mankading The year was 1947 and the Indian cricketing team were touring Australia for the very first time. Even though our side lost the series 4-0, our boys didn't fail to make the headlines as Mulvantrai Himmatlal 'Vinoo' Mankad decided to runout Aussie batsman Bill Brown, who had just stepped out of the crease at the non-striker's end, even before he delivered the ball. The origin of 'Mankading' pic.twitter.com/EDo6EPzj — Sir Fred Boycott (@FredBoycott) August 31, 2012 Even though batsmen were dismissed for moving out of the crease at the non-stricker's end before this incident, Mankad's bold move was the first in Test cricket's history. The then Aussie skipper Don Brandman supported the Indian all-rounder but the Australian media showed no mercy and called him out for “unsportsmanlike conduct”. The term 'Mankading' got branded after the Indian cricketer for the years to come. 2. Sunil Gavaskar's Threaten To Forfeit The Match Ahead of the 1980-81 series, India had managed to stain their reputation as they had not won a single match on Australian soil in 17 years and that was something that was eating up the then captain Sunil Gavaskar from inside. Struggling to put runs on the scoreboard, the batsman had an abysmal 19.66 average during that tour and was looking for redemption at the Melbourne Cricket Ground during the third Test. Then he finally found stability at the pitch and went for 70 in the second innings. But when umpire Rex Whitehead raised his finger on an LBW appeal against the Indian opener following a Dennis Lille off-cutter, Gavaskar protested that the ball had hit his bat first. Walking back to the pavilion, the Little Master asked his partner Chetan Chauhan to leave the field with him, only to be consoled by the team manager at the boundary. This decision, as Gavaskar told the reporters after India won the match, was the seventh “blatantly incorrect” call made by the officials during the series and he was ready to make some gutsy moves. 3. Monkeygate Ah, what's a rivalry with the Aussies without hints of racism in it? The infamous 'monkeygate' controversy however goes against the historically tainted reputation of the cricketing fraternity from Down Under as Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds accused Indian bowler Harbhajan Singh of racial abuse. The off-spinner was banned for three matches by the match referee but Cricket Australia let go of the case and the Indian cricketer (not wanting a significant loss of money) after Team India threatened to forfeit the series if the ban wasn't overruled. The isolated incident did manage to ruin the relationship between the two cricketing giants for a long time. 4. Virat Kohli Lost His Cool At SCG 2012, Sydney Cricket Ground was packed with an animated Australian crowd and knew the right buttons to push to get a reaction out of a young, hot-headed Virat Kohli and went on to 'Flip the Bird' to a bunch of viewers placed behind him when he was stationed at the boundary. Local media ran the story as 'Fingergate' and the future Indian skipper had to defend himself on social media. Nonetheless, Kohli was fined half of his match fee but didn't face suspension. & Virat Kohli's middle finger to the Syndey Crowd?Thax @K_Gwalani for pointing it out.cc: @forudubey @dushyanthechamp pic.twitter.com/8MDY00fYTg — Tinu Cherian Abraham (@tinucherian) December 14, 2014 “I really laugh at a lot of the things I did when I was younger but I'm proud that I did not change my ways because I was always going to be who I am and not change for the world or for anyone else. I was pretty happy with who I was,” said the Indian cricketer in an interview in 2018. 5. Steve Smith's “Brain Fade” The latter half of the previous decade saw the ascension of Steve Smith as one of the greatest batsmen in the longest format of the game. In a juxtaposition, this period also saw the Aussie cricketer crash his reputation into the ground with the ill-famed 'Sandpaper gate' against the South Africans. But not a lot of people remember Smith's notorious 'brain fade' during the second Test between India and Australia in 2017. When Umesh Yadav got a nod from the umpire on an LBW appeal against the batsman, it was Smith's decision to go for a DRS review. Unsure of the situation, Smith quickly looked towards his dressing room to get some guidance but Kohli let the whole thing unveil in front of him and let the officials know. Caught red-handed, the Australian had to move out of the field with his head bowed in shame and apologised for the “brain fade” that he had during the incident. Kohli didn't buy what Smith was selling and went on to call them cheats. View the full article
  7. For many of us, it isn't a pleasant feeling reminiscing about our Math classes at school. Or worse, the look on our Math teacher's face every time she handed out our test papers. It was laborious to sit through 45-50 minutes of utterly boring Math lectures. Pretending that we were following even half the s**t that was explained on the blackboard using the same hundred numbers, along with terrifying symbols which legit brought nightmares! © Twitter Things weren't much different when it came to Social Sciences either, though there would be moments when we would actually get interested in the kings who ruled over India and how badass Gandhi was during his time. Even Geography and Civics would come to make sense on more than one occasion because the relatability factor for these subjects was still much higher than Math! But now, those days of boredom and dread are long gone, and we've grown up to be adults with a mind of our own and the ability to read, learn, work and earn. But it so turns out that in real life it's the lessons we learnt in Civics that would stay around guarding our individuality, rights and freedom as long as we're alive. © Dharma Productions Given the current scenario in India which has the entire world looking at us, it would do us good to recall a thing or two we were taught in 9th standard Civics. That one chapter which empowered each one of us with enough confidence, faith and pride in our country, our democracy. The chapter was called Democratic Rights and as you may have understood, it's time we revise our basics once again. What Are Rights? © Twitter In a very basic sense, Rights are “claims of a person over other fellow beings, over the society and over the government”. To live in a diverse society like ours, people need to feel secure to live happily with others, and our Rights help us with just that! What Are Fundamental Rights? Simply put, Fundamental Rights are basic human rights that every citizen enjoys, irrespective of their gender, caste, religion or creed. The Constitution of India guarantees six fundamental rights to Indian citizens and those are: (i) Right to equality (ii) Right to freedom (iii) Right against exploitation (iv) Right to freedom of religion (v) Cultural and educational rights (vi) Right to constitutional remedies. © Twitter However, of late many Indians are claiming that they feel that their fundamental rights are under threat given the current political scenario in the country. Let's see how: 1. Protests Regardless of the reason why a protest is being held, be it a traders' protest, a student protest or protests by a minority group, The Constitution, under the Right to Freedom allows Indian citizens to hold peaceful protests and express their dissent against institutions and authority. Article 19 of our Constitution provides 6 forms of freedom to Indians out of which 'Freedom of speech and expression' and 'Freedom to assemble peacefully and without arms' make protests not only democratic but also a Constitutional Right to be employed whenever needed. © Instagram Ronojoy Sircar Without choosing sides or forcing people to give up their political affiliations, let us remember to not call peaceful protests a nuisance or public inconvenience. 2. Education Numerous universities in the country have witnessed instances of unrest and fear in recent times. Students, teachers and even security personnel have been hurt in the process of voicing the concerns and demands of a group, after things went out of hand. We must remember that Article 29 under 'Cultural and Educational Rights' of The Constitution states that any minority group having a distinct language, script or culture of its own shall have can take measures to conserve it. Additionally, no citizen can be denied admission into any educational institution maintained by the government or receiving government aid on the grounds of religion, race, caste, or language. 3. Equal Treatment © Unspalsh The on-going nationwide outcry against a recently passed Act, is believed to have violated the most important of all Rights, namely the 'Right to Equality'. The CAA-NRC protestors claim that Article 14 and 15 under Right to Equality, which guarantees that every Indian citizen shall enjoy equality before law and prohibition of discrimination in any form on the grounds of religion, race, caste, *** or place of birth respectively, is currently under attack and thus the call for an absolute boycott of the Act has been called. 4. Preventing Violation Of Rights © BCCL People who have come to the streets for whatever personal, religious or political reasons and not only employing their Right to freedom, but also their 'Right to Constitutional Remedies' which decrees that citizens have the right to seek help from courts if their rights are violated. Article 32 of The Constitution states that in case of violation of fundamental rights, people can directly approach the Supreme Court to seek justice. The 56 pleas against CAA-NRC which have been sent to the Supreme Court and are due to be heard on 22nd January 2020, are in keeping with this. You see, there is no Math here, just plain Civics reminding us to be civil human beings and citizens of India. View the full article
  8. Hrithik Roshan is the man of the hour as he is not only an impeccable actor but has also been rated as 'The Most Handsome Man' in the world. It's not just his good looks that make us go weak in the knees but even his fashion game has an effortless charm that we cannot miss out on. © Viral Bhayani He struts in elegant outfits, no matter what the occasion is. This time around for a birthday bash, he made an appearance in a casual, laid-back outfit. While his outfit looked like he was ready to groove on his song 'Ghungaroo', his pants, on the other hand, had a different knack altogether. Yes, it looked like the pants have ripped bandages. We have to admit that this pair is quite hippy and certainly a unique pair that we have seen of late. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani These days ripped jeans are stealing a lot of attention. Be it minimally ripped or highly distressed options, every style looks quirky. Just a couple of days back, we even noticed Ranbir Kapoor making a statement in his maximalist pair of distressed jeans. It means that the trend is here to stay and undoubtedly, it is a must-have in our wardrobes too. © Viral Bhayani As far as Hrithik's pants are concerned, well, they don't actually have bandages but the ripped style is such that it gives an illusion of bandages on both the sides. This idea makes his grey jeans double dekko worthy and we cannot wait to see more of such looks. © Viral Bhayani Hrithik knows how to strike a chord with us with his sartorial choices. As for his outfit goes, he made a statement in a summery white shirt with ripped jeans and black boots. Add to that, his hat and neckpiece instantly score all the brownie points. Now, if you need ripped jeans that are actually exuberant and quirky, this style is it. Keep up the game, Hrithik! View the full article
  9. The real tragedy doesn't lie in being average, it's actually in being better than the average, being talented and possessing the heart to really chase after your passion. It's like being caught in an in-between, and that's an awful place to be in for anyone, but it's especially tragic for an actor. They are often good enough to be at par with the lead actors (or even better than the leads at times) but as luck would have it, lack of 'connections' and opportunities makes them settle for much less such as playing the second fiddle. © Instagram - Jimmy Shergill It's rather disheartening that my opening lines for an article on Jimmy Shergill should contain the term 'tragedy' in it, but it is what it is. This thet Punjabi munda, has always been deeply connected to his roots, glimpses of which can be found in a number of memorable characters Jimmy has portrayed in the last two decades of his presence in Bollywood. Yet, it wouldn't be unfair to say that the Hindi film industry has failed to explore the true potential of this talented actor who could have been much more. He was killed off even before we really got to know him in Munna Bhai M.B.B.S., Bang Bang saw him share a similar fate once again where his character drops dead in the first five minutes of the film. Plays a guy with speech impairment in a film where he is trying to woo a girl and honestly, he seems to be losing the girl in every movie he signs up. © Instagram - Jimmy Shergill But a number of his movies and performances have left a mark in the hearts of people who feel this guy really deserves more than just five minutes of footage, being tossed around uncharacteristically, or reservations, when it comes to applauding his good work. 1. Maachis © Eros Entertainment Jimmy Shergill's 1996 debut movie showed him in the role of a young college guy, forced by circumstances to pick up arms. But Jaimal's small role was still impactful and helped carry the plot forward. Yet, very few would remember him from the film that also starred Chandrachur Singh and Tabu in the lead. 2. A Wednesday © Friday Filmworks Perhaps one of Jimmy's most memorable performances for most people, Jimmy as police officer Arif Khan who makes it his life's purpose to foil possible bombings in his city and the way he goes about doing it all is commendable, to say the least. 3. Yahaan © Sahara One Motion Pictures Jimmy Shergill as Captain Aman in Shoojit Sircar's Yahaan, not only made for an insightful war drama but his performance as an Army officer as well as a lover, who falls for a Kashmiri woman amid war and unrest, cannot be easily forgotten. 4. Special 26 © Friday Filmworks How can we forget Sub-Inspector Ranveer Singh who does a rather marvellous job of sending the CBI into a complete spin and the workings of which are not discovered until the very end? Not only Jimmy's performance, but even the way his character evolves in the film deserves an honest mention. 5. Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster © Bohra Bros Jimmy Shergill really does manage to pull off the role of Aditya Pratap Singh with great aplomb. As Singh tries to hold the fort against political meanderings and pressure to maintain his lifestyle as royalty, the film takes us through the many unimagined ways love, betrayal and money work. 6. Tanu Weds Manu Series © Viacom 18 If not anything else, Jimmy Shergill as Raja Awasthi credits a mention as one of his really memorable performances. When the nemesis succeeds to inspire sympathy in the hearts of the audience, you should know there's something special there, and Raja is just that. A lot twisted and sharp around the edges, but one that allows light to break through the cracks. You cannot help but really feel for the guy here. View the full article
  10. When a bride in Pakistan wore tomatoes instead of jewellery at her wedding, desi people were having a field day cracking jokes and laughing on them. Today, all those people are crying in the middle of a vegetable market, after hearing the price of onions. The recent hike in the price of onions is making people cry more than peeling or chopping them ever did. There was a time when people joked about selling their kidneys for an iPhone, now they are willing to sell it to buy 1 kg of onions. © Reuters In case you didn't know, the price of onions have already crossed the century mark in some states and we don't think the prices are going to drop any time soon. Onions are one of the staple vegetables, which we can't really imagine our lives without. In fact, this price hike has hit people so hard, that recently in Gujarat a thief stole onions worth Rs 25,000 and left everything else untouched. But, we're living in the era of social media. With great sadness comes greater memes that further pinch us right where it hurts the most. Since the prices aren't going down soon, people decided to vent out their frustration on social media through these memes and it actually comes as a respite to know that y'all are not crying alone. #Onion120 time to convert to jainism — Vishambhar Kaushal (@VishKaushal22) November 27, 2019 Exchange Offer !!!#iPhone #OnionCrisis ð¾ðð pic.twitter.com/HmFHPd3Ffr — Engineer'sðChoice ð (@sumansekhar1) November 29, 2019 #Onion120 #OnionPrice @sambitswaraj pic.twitter.com/sc3bHGCSuL — vikash anand urf Vicky (@vikasha83933090) November 27, 2019 Looking at Onion Price: pic.twitter.com/z9QhdbEPrW — رÙÙاÙا (@RomanaRaza) November 29, 2019 Keep the bag of onion locked because the price high in Assam.per kg 80 rupees. pic.twitter.com/Qwdq5irLim — rupnath sarma (@Rupnaths) November 28, 2019 Scientists and farmers use chemicals in onions so that it doesn't make people cry.

  11. When most people were busy waiting for and analysing the results in Maharashtra, some people on social media were busy churning out memes out of a situation, which was in no way supposed to be funny, especially when an entire state's fate depended on it. But, that's the charm of social media, particularly Twitter and they haven't disappointed us this time either. In an epic political drama, on a Friday night it was decided that Shiv Sena's Uddhav Thackeray will assume his responsibilities as the next CM. However, that news was shortlived as on Saturday, people woke up to the news that BJP's Devender Fadnavis has been confirmed as the next CM for the second time in a row and Ajit Pawar will be the state's Deputy Chief Minister. BCCL The President's rule that was imposed on the state since November 12 was also lifted by President Ram Nath Kovind before Fadnavis took oath. Reportedly, Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari administered the oath to Fadnavis and Pawat at Raj Bhawan. This overnight development created quite a stir not just in the world of politics, but also on social media where people went berserk giving their 'esteemed' opinion on whatever happened. Not that anyone asked for it, but their hilarious opinion and take on this entire issue is definitely hard to miss. In fact, many people compared it to 'Game of Thrones' and wrote how Amit Shah should have written the script of season 8. Fans: the Red Wedding was the best twist I've ever seen.

  12. If Ranveer Singh was a word in a dictionary, we are sure it would mean 'eccentric'. He has shown us time and again that his sartorial choices are OTT that never fail to make a striking impression on us. His beloved wife, Deepika Padukone, however, is a fashionista known for her classic statement. She is someone who usually sports ensembles that are relatable AF. Their social media banter is also never-ending, and as this beautiful couple celebrates their one year anniversary in Tirupati, we are here with some throwback pictures of Ranveer that prove how Deepika has legit kept his crazy side in check. Believe us, he has given enough inspiration to take style cues from his wardrobe. Here, take a look! View this post on Instagram ð A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Mar 11, 2019 at 10:47pm PDT Even though it's all about eccentric for Ranveer, he was seen sporting a three-piece suit in a neutral shade with just vertical stripes. If this isn't a simple style statement, we don't know what is! © Viral Bhayani When he stepped out with a sweatshirt with basic but badass pair of extra-long pants and platform loafers. This outfit of Ranveer's was super relatable and we loved how he colour co-ordinated with Deepika while keeping his style tamed down. © Viral Bhayani And just when we were hoping that Ranveer would step out in something out-of-the-box even for voting, he wore a polka dot shirt with relaxed grey pants. So damn easy to cop, right? © Viral Bhayani His airport looks have also been a perfect mix of outlandish styles but Deepika has been able to tone that down as well. Last year, post his wedding, he was seen wearing a simple kurta and pyjama with a Lotus Jade printed Nehru jacket. This elegant avatar proved that he knows how to ace the ethnic game as well.

He wore a long trench coat and layered it with a white t-shirt and blue jeans. Clearly, this is basic-not-so-basic. View the full article
  13. Let's be honest - Bollywood just isn't the same without over-the-top action sequences. Even during the old dishoom-dishoom era of action movies, Bollywood's stunt performers have retained a long legacy full of breathtaking action cinema moments, and more than a few broken bones. Some stars, however, have made it a point to go the extra mile and perform stunts themselves. Here's a few of the most iconic Bollywood daredevils you'll find in the industry: Akshay Kumar No surprise here - the Khiladi star earned his famous nickname for a reason, and we're sure it has something to do with his entire acting career featuring incredible stunts of all kinds. He's put a taekwondo black-belt to use in fight scenes, skydived, swam with sharks and suffered burns, slipped discs and several more injuries - no wonder he's the host of Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi. Ajay Devgn Perhaps the only actor on this list to have a 'signature move' when it comes to stunts, Devgn was well-steeped in Bollywood's stunt industry being the son of legendary stuntman and action director, Veeru Devgan. The aforementioned move was in the opening shots of his very first film - Phool Aur Kaante, where Devgn performed a perfect split - between two moving motorcycles. In subsequent years, he went on to cement a reputation in the industry for recreating this stunt - in between two cars in Rohit Shetty's Golmaal series, as well as 2019's De De Pyaar De. Vidyut Jamwal Ever since his debut alongside John Abraham in 2014's Force, Vidyut Jamwal has proven some pretty serious expertise in two things. He has consistently performed some of the best parkour work in Bollywood - performing somersaults over moving vehicles, vaulting through windows and using stuntmen's bodies as setups to moves you'd expect to see in WWE. Perhaps the origin of this talent comes from his training in the world's oldest martial art, Kalaripattayu. He has been involved with the technique ever since the age of three, at his mother's ashram. Priyanka Chopra While Priyanka Chopra gained a lot of worldwide acclaim for performing her own stunts in Quantico, she alludes her comfort with working on stunts to her experiences in Bollywood. While her repertoire of stunt work was most-highlighted in Mary Kom, Quantico seriously upped the ante with its fight scenes, guns and vehicle stunts - Chopra was even rushed to the ER back in 2017 for a concussion she suffered on set during one of these shoots. Hrithik Roshan Back in his early 20s, Hrithik Roshan was diagnosed with scoliosis - a spine disorder that doctors told him would prevent him from dancing or performing stunts in films. Despite this, not only is he one of the industry's most lauded dancers - he's also performed some truly incredible stunts throughout the last two decades. With some of his best work featured in his recent action thriller, War, at the age of 45, he's still at the top of his game with 4 stunt directors and everything from high-speed chases to fight scenes. Despite this intense dedication, Roshan has also paid a serious price to do his own stunts - back in 2013, the actor suffered a serious injury while filming in Thailand - resulting in him needing brain surgery, much like Jackie Chan during his earlier career. View this post on Instagram Meeting Jackie Chan was a revelation at so many levels. Incredible experience. Inspired. #kaabilinchina #ilovechina #china @jackiechan A post shared by Hrithik Roshan (@hrithikroshan) on May 31, 2019 at 8:57pm PDT Both actors are still alive and very much kicking.

  14. For a dispute that simmered and boiled on the troubled land of Ayodhya for the last three decades, the last judgement on the conflict has laid to rest any contestation on the matter for the time to come. The special five-judge Constitutional bench set up by the Supreme Court of India to rule out the final verdict of the Ayodhya case, has declared that the disputed site in Ayodhya shall be used for the construction of a Ram temple, while a five-acre land in the area shall be given to the Muslim community for the construction of a mosque. © BCCL Headed by the Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, along with Justices DY Chandrachud, S Abdul Nazeer, Ashok Bhushan and SA Bobde, the unanimous judgement by the judges was taken keeping in mind the diktats of the Indian Constitution and the court of law which calls for a just and fair ruling based on concrete, reliable proofs and arguments. © Twitter/thefirstindia Here are 10 such important statements made by the Supreme Court of India in support of the Ayodhya verdict: 1. "The Babri mosque was built by Mir Baqi. But it is inappropriate for the Court to get into an area of theology while coming to a decision on such a sensitive subject." 2. "The court must accept and take into consideration the faiths and beliefs of worshippers. However, the court should strive to preserve balance under all circumstances." © BCCL 3. "The claim of Nirmohi Akhara is limited to management of the temple. Nirmohi Akhara is not a 'Shebait' and their arguments were made on archaeology reports. The credibility of the Archaeological Survey of India are beyond doubt and its findings can't be neglected." 4. "Hindus consider Ayodhya as Lord Ram's birthplace, while Muslims call it the Babri mosque. Faith of Hindus that Lord Ram was born here remains undisputed." 5. "Hindus have faith and belief that Lord Ram was born under the dome. However, faith is a matter of individual belief." © Twitter 6. "Titles can't be decided on the basis of faith and belief but on the claims. Historical accounts indicate that the belief of Hindus that Ayodhya was the birthplace of Lord Ram is true." 7. "There is evidence that Ram Chabutra, Sita Rasoi was worshipped by the Hindus before the British came. Evidence in the records shows that Hindus were in the possession of the outer court of the disputed land." 8. "There is no evidence that Muslims abandoned the mosque. Hindus always believed birthplace of Lord Ram was in the inner courtyard of the mosque. Clearly establishes that Muslims offered prayer inside the inner courtyard while Hindus offered prayers in the outer courtyard." © BCCL 9. "Within the next 3-4 months, the Central government should set up a trust and hand over the disputed site to them for the construction of a temple." 10. "A suitable five-acre plot of land within Ayodhya must be given to Sunni Wakf Board for the construction of a mosque." View the full article
  15. After breathtaking performances in Baby Driver, The Accountant, The Walking Dead and of course, The Punisher, Jon Bernthal has some serious experience when it comes to adrenaline-fueled action films - along with doing plenty of his own stunts. via GIPHY This experience, which has seen him through broken hands, torn ligaments, concussions and emergency surgery, mimics many of the injuries that film industry stunt performers are expected to go through. In an interview with Comicbook.com, the actor shared some of the challenges of filming stunts for Marvel's TV shows, and called for some much-needed appreciation for his associates in the stunt community. via Gfycat With the exception of a few daring actors, most action sequences couldn't be done without the work of stunt performers - some of whom have died on set too. So here's a special showcase of our top 5 picks for the most incredible stunts ever performed on film, and the legendary, death-defying people who made them happen. 5. Yakima Canutt - Stagecoach Starting with the classics, this 1939 Western is known for two things - kickstarting the career of the quintessential onscreen American cowboy, John Wayne, and this absolutely insane scene. Legendary stuntman and stunt coordinator Yakima Canutt was known for inventing many important forms of stunt equipment still in use today, but he proved that he still had it in him by not only dismounting a horse mid-gallop, but also sliding underneath six of them and their carriage, and then leaping from horse to horse in another scene. Many consider him to be the grandfather of cinema stunt production. 4. Tom Cruise - Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol Tom 'Does His Own Stunts' Cruise has been an action hero icon for over 30 years now - and still continues to do some downright insane stuff for his films' setpieces, raising the bar higher than ever before in 2011's MI:GP - quite literally. Cruise spent over 200 hours rehearsing the scene on set - before jumping out of the window of the world's tallest building, running like a madman across its windows while dangling a dizzying 1,700 feet in the air. When reporters questioned the actor in the days leading up to the shoot, he had a simple response - “I hope I don't fall.” 3. David Belle - District B13 While several action films have tried to capture the novelty and social media popularity of parkour artists, who leap, slide, sprint and somersault through urban cityscapes, they usually reserve this for specific scenes, brought together through stunt doubles, wires and CGI effects. Not French action classic District B13 however. This film picked up the founder of parkour himself, David Belle, and cast him as the lead character. The result? Possibly the best rooftop chase in cinematic history. 2. Adam Kirkley - Casino Royale Possibly one of the most expensive stunts on this list, the stunt team for Daniel Craig's first Bond film produced around $1.25 million worth of wrecked Aston Martin DBS cars, and a stunt for the record books. When the initial plan of using a ramp resulted in a lukewarm jump due to the car's high-performance, stable chassis, the team used a nitrogen powered piston to launch the car (and stunt driver Adam Kirkley) into a spectacular series of rolls - seven in total, which put the stunt into the Guinness Book Of World Records. 1. Jackie Chan - Police Story A top stuntman list without Jackie Chan? Impossible. Having broken pretty much every bone in his body while becoming synonymous with kung-fu action stunts, the beloved action star pulled off one of the most painful, daring and downright dangerous stunts in history during this 1985 hit. Skinned and friction-burned palms. Electric shocks. Lacerations due to glass. A damaged back and to top off this pain sundae, a dislocated pelvis - no wonder one of Jackie's stuntmen performed a prayer and presented him with a Buddha statue before he performed this one. And given the risk these superhumans put themselves through, Bernthal's following statement makes even more sense: “They're my brothers, they're the people I'm closest with on set. I think it's absolutely a crime there's not an Academy Award for stunt performers. The stunt community, they're the ones really putting it on the line. The creativity that comes out of the stunt community is mind-boggling. I think nowadays, it's one of the key reasons why people go and seek out entertainment, because of how good the stunts are, and there are people actually doing that. I train with those guys every day, I try to go in full-out. It's kind of the mantra of a stunt guy, 'Do it hard, do it once.' Don't pull a punch, because then you're gonna have to do it 15 times. 'Just hit me, and do it once.' So we try to live by that.” Yet, as Bernthal points out, their efforts still go unrecognised on award night. But we sincerely hope that the Academy will take Bernthal's suggestions seriously. Along with Tarantino's latest flick, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, there seems to be a growing awareness of stunt performers in the industry, and they deserve to be recognised. View the full article
  16. October 18 marked a pretty important day in the history of commercial aviation, as Australian airline Qantas embarked on the first test flight of Project Sunrise, which aims to establish a direct flight from Sydney to London and New York - here are some key facts behind this record-shattering attempt. It Will Break The Longest Direct Flight Record © Qantas No small feat here - Qantas is aiming to make it into the history books with this flight, which happens to cover roughly 16,200 kilometres, over 20 hours. It's so long that if you were on the aircraft, you'd have to adjust for a 15-hour difference due to time zones. The previous champion was Singapore Airlines' 18.5 hour journey from Singapore to New Jersey. The Flight Also Works As A Closely Monitored Test Environment © Qantas Naturally, any commercial airline needs to focus on the comfort, safety and health of its passengers. And as an industry first, this particular flight offers a great opportunity for Qantas to study the effects of continuous flight on both crew and passengers. As a result, the test flight will carry 40 crew members, whose movements in the cabin, eating habits and sleep schedule will be studied to prepare the flight for its planned 2022 launch. An Unusual Flight Plan © Qantas Rather than following the standard practice of serving food and dimming the lights after takeoff, Qantas plans to keep everyone awake for six hours. They'll be helped by food containing hot peppers and spices. Now that's one way to keep your crew awake and alert. “The passenger research will test alternatives to how airlines have managed in-flight service for decades,” said Qantas CEO, Alan Joyce. © Reuters The industry's traditional schedule may not be the best way to switch the body clock to the destination's time zone, he said. A Legendary Aircraft Taking On The Journey © Qantas Launched in 2011, the Boeing 787 'Dreamliner' is an aircraft that's done an incredible job of connecting the world ever since its launch. With its remarkable fuel efficiency and range, it's succeeded in helping airlines establish over 1,900 routes over the last eight years. © Qantas With a standard capacity of 296 passengers, Qantas has chosen the 787-9 variant for this test flight, but are in talks with Airbus and Boeing to adapt the A350 and 777x aircraft, as they're more commercially viable. Possible Health Risks © Steven Thompson Along with the psychological factors of being stuck in an airplane for several hours, there's some very real medical concerns for ultra-long range flyers. If stuck in your seat for too long, there's a possibility that you will develop blood clots in the veins of your legs - a condition called Deep Vein Thrombosis, or DVT. The clots formed can travel through the body and block an artery in the lungs, leading to a condition called pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal if not promptly treated. On a less serious note, there's also the prospect of the flight giving passengers the worst jet lag in human history. Thankfully, Boeing says that their cabin is pressurised to 6,000 feet rather than 8,000 feet, a move that helps reduce passenger fatigue and sleep issues. How do you think you'd handle 20 hours in an airplane? Tell us in the comments below.
  17. It's the best Chris in Hollywood's birthday, yay! What can I say about Chris Evans? He's a great actor, he's a great person, he's literally a golden retriever in human form. This near-perfect human being turned 38 today and we obviously need to celebrate him, and what better way than to look back at all of his best scenes from the MCU? Let's be real, he can do whatever role he wants, but he will always be Captain America (sorry, Anthony Mackie but that's what you get for a boring Black Mirror episode). As Cap, he's given us many incredible movies with unforgettable dialogues and scenes. While every scene with him is great, of course, I have listed out the best, most memorable scenes. Enjoy! Also, happy birthday, Cap! 1. The best Cap scene ever/ Hammer Time This scene, this freaking scene, is hands down the best MCU moment for me. I can watch it a hundred times and still be as excited as the first time. Such a crucial moment, Thanos is overpowering Thor and will probably kill him, but wait, in comes Cap to show he's worthy. Nothing can top this. 2. Cap vs Cap Another great 'Endgame' scene that we didn't know he needed until it actually happened. From “I can do this all day” “yeah, I know, I know” to “Bucky is alive” to “this IS America's ass”, the whole Cap vs Cap fight scene was perfect, nothing can make it better. 3. “There's only one God” What a dialogue, what a way to introduce Thor in 'The Avengers', and Steve being Steve and jumping out of planes. Also, him calling Natasha 'ma'am' proving he really is from the 40s. 4. When he blocks Thor's hammer Well, now we know how and why he could do this. He's also so worthy! Also, the moment Thor realizes they're not some random people. 5. Lift scene(s) A great scene from an overall great movie. The 'lift scene' is so memorable, it's so well done. Anyone should be afraid of getting into a lift with Chris Evans - or make fun of it - but either way, it's still one of the best MCU scenes till date and that's why there was a callback to that in 'Endgame' as well. Cap saying 'Hail Hydra' will never not be funny to me. 6. Cap is strong, like very very strong If you were not even a little turned on by Chris Evans' muscles and strength in this scene, then you're not human and you're also lying. The guy is so freaking strong, he literally could stop a fucking helicopter from flying. Strongest Avenger right here, people. Hulk who? 7. Nomad Cap! You cannot tell me that Cap's entry in 'Infinity War' wasn't one of the best scenes in a movie filled with incredible scenes. To be honest, it was the perfect way to introduce the newest Avenger - Captain America's cool new beard (and no I'm not talking about Peggy or Sharon). 8. AVENGERS…assemble Well, we started with 'Endgame' and we'll end with 'Endgame', obviously. This might not be a long scene but it's a damn powerful one. Everyone who got dusted is back - which again was a visual treat in itself - but when Cap comes in front and does what he does best - lead - it was just great to watch. Also, it was the last time these Avengers will ever assemble and the added emotional aspect makes it an unforgettable scene from the entire MCU.
  18. 'Brahmastra' is one of the most-anticipated films of 2020 for ample of reasons. Firstly, the movie will see Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt pairing up together for the first time on-screen. They have been in the headlines for their budding relationship and now, fans can't wait to see them on the silver screen. Second is that fact that the movie is a supernatural drama by Ayan Mukerji. The team is currently shooting for the movie in Varanasi and the BTS pictures from the sets are doing the rounds on social media. In the photos, you can see Ranbir and Alia holding their hands and standing on a boat looking pensive, while they were shooting for a song sequence on Chet Singh Ghat in Varanasi. The major portion of the shoot will happen at the Ramnagar Fort in Varanasi. In the photos, you can see Alia wearing a red shrug with a white top and denim and Ranbir is dressed in an olive green shirt and denim. The pictures of the two have been curated by many of their fan clubs and the movie is beginning to look really promising.

The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy, Dimple Kapadia and Akkineni Nagarjuna in key roles. Talking about the film, Alia had earlier told PTI, "We are very excited about the film. It is a step ahead. This will take cinema to another level." The film is all set to hit the screen in Summer 2020. Are you excited? Let us know in the comments below.
  19. Our armed forces are considered formidable for a reason. Yes, there are more dangerous defense squads out there - more ruthless, more scary, more unforgiving - but that cannot be held true for Indian soldiers. Our men in camouflage would lay down their lives to protect the country and its citizens in a heartbeat. They too believe in avenging senseless killings and ensuring that no innocent person unnecessarily pays for the wrongdoings of others. © Twitter But what makes them so special is that regardless of where they are and what they are upto, our soldiers never lose touch with their humane side, and always go out of their way to serve people, even off duty! We have heard about multiple instances when our soldiers went beyond their call of duty to help people in need. They not only save lives but also inspire others to live a life where there is always space and time to accommodate the needs of others. © Twitter Something very similar happened recently in Chhattisgarh's Bijapur area where CRPF personnel of the CoBRA battalion were seen carrying an injured man on a cot to a hospital that was 5 km away. According to an ANI report, the injured man had hurt himself by falling off a tractor and required treatment. The CRPF personnel carried the man on their shoulder and reportedly the man is now stable. © ANI Much like all the other instances of their selflessness and devotion, even this incident proves that our men in uniforms are nothing less than superheroes in disguise.
  20. The Olympia is the showdown when it comes to bodybuilding and physique competitions of the world. Athletes grind and grind to achieve their pro cards to reach the coveted stage and rub shoulders with the world-class athletes to get their hands on the coveted trophy called the Sandow. The Sandow has a rich history too which can be a topic for a different day altogether. © Getty Images The 2018 Olympia was a major shocker for most followers in the sport and more importantly the men's physique and men's bodybuilding categories. In the men's physique, Brandon Hendrickson dethroned the 4-time champion Jeremy Buendia and in men's bodybuilding, it was Shawn Rhoden who took the coveted Sandow off the hands of the SEVEN-time champion Phil Heath. The fans yet seem to be split on who deserved it more. Half are condemning the new Mr O whereas the other half are cherishing the new champ. © Getty Images Here are a few things that you should know of Shawn Rhoden and why do I believe he deserved to win the Sandow this year: 1. He Got The Fans Reminiscing Of The 'Golden' Era A lot of bodybuilding legends including Arnold Schwarzenegger have openly criticized that men's bodybuilding is a dying sport where the new-era bodybuilders only focus on size and muscle, totally compromising the aesthetics which was the utmost focus of the bodybuilder's of Arnold's era. The huge midsection and the gut that made bodybuilders look pregnant were the trademarks of these mass monsters. Rhoden, when he stepped on stage, boasted size, fullness, and muscularity without looking like the criticized mass monsters. He had a good balance of aesthetics along with the muscle and got the fans reminded of the golden era of bodybuilding. 2. He Was In The ICU Just Seven Months Before Olympia Shawn was forced to pull out of Arnold Classic 2018 due to a health scare and was in a very terrible health condition. Shawn was on nobody's radar and nobody expected him to turn up and dethrone the most dominating bodybuilder of this decade. In an Instagram post before Arnold Classic 2018, he wrote - "Not only did I have the horrible flu going around but my haemoglobin level was at 4 (should be around 14). I lost A LOT of blood due to two ulcers bleeding into my intestine over a period of time. I was given 6 blood transfusions that brought my body back to levels where my body could reproduce enough blood on its own to normal levels. Since it is so close to the Arnold, I am disappointed that I must announce that I will not be competing in this years Arnold Classic 2018." 3. He Is The Oldest Mr Olympia At the ripe age of 43, Shawn Rhoden tied the record for the oldest Mr Olympia champ along with Chris Dickerson. Chris won the Mr O title at the same age back in 1982. The way Shawn turned up this year and beat one of the most celebrated and accomplished Mr O of this decade has been a welcome surprise for the fans. Him dominating the stage has also got many people anticipating the return of the Golden Era. Author bio: Pratik Thakkar is the co-founder and director of GetSetGo Fitness, an online fitness company.

  21. Relationships can be tricky to manoeuvre sometimes. When we start out, it's all hearts and roses, goosebumps and shooting heart rates, then a few months (or even years) down the line, everything looks darn different. The excitement dies down to a ripple, and all the butterflies seem to have flown out of our tummies, and our 'heart eyes' are restored to their original capacities. (c)Dharma Productions However, amidst all these things, if there is one thing that ideally should not change, are the feelings our partner inspires every time we look at them. Yes, even with their sleep-mussed hair, runny makeup, or in the middle of a showdown right in the car parking! No matter what the situation is, and what we might be up to, there should never be any doubt in our mind about how our partner makes us feel. Even when things get ugly or difficult, our feelings for one another must never change, or at least not enough to intentionally hurt eat other. The love and respect we share must always be our strength, no matter how much time or how many struggles we have to face together. (c)T-Series Yet, if you are still not sure whether he or she is 'The One' for you, answer these 6 simple questions and find out for yourself. Mind you, if your answer to any of these is 'no', then you and your partner need to take a step back and reconsider your future: Question 1: Can You Discuss Anything & Everything With Your Partner At Given Point Of Time? Think real hard. Open channels of communication and sharing are the biggest signifiers of a fulfilling relationship. (c)Maddock Films Question 2: Do You Seek To Or Envision/Dream Of Spending Your Old Age With Your Partner? Seeking a future together should be on both of your lists for the relationship to flourish and bloom. Both of you should be looking for the same things from your relationship. Question 3: Is Yours An Unconditional And Selfless Love? Do you love your partner without any expectations and in abundance, and the same can be said for how they feel for you? If not, then you need to address this with your partner. (c)Dharma Productions Question 4: Is Your Partner Welcome At Every Family Get-Together Or Outing With Friends? It's important that our friends and family like the person we wish to spend the rest of our lives with. Because if they don't like them, there's going to be a solid reason and you might want to look into it. Question 5: Do Your Fantasies Have A Face Different Than Your Partner's? If this has ever happened to you, stop right there. Fantasizing about dating or bedding someone else while in a relationship is a huge red flag. (c)Excel Emtertainment Question 6: Do You Cherish The Time Spent Together? Enjoying each other's company and looking forward to hanging out together doing nothing, in particular, are signs of a healthy relationship. If you don't love spending time with your partner for whatever reason, this relationship isn't for you.
  22. It has been over a decade since Kapil Sharma first set foot in our living rooms with the 'Great Indian Laughter Challenge'. All of a sudden, Kapil began changing how we viewed entertainment, one set at a time. The show might have given India its comedy king, but it was what Kapil did with his talent and popularity that deserves appreciation. After participating and winning multiple comedy shows, Kapil brought 'The Kapil Sharma Show' into existence in 2013. © Twitter People lapped up the content Kapil had to offer and kept coming back for more. The comedy star never failed to strike a chord with his audience and tickle their funny bones, and that earned him an insane fan following throughout the country. Recently, Sony channel took to their Twitter account to announce that Kapil Sharma has been named as one of the most viewed stand-up comedians in India, by World Book of Records London. He was also given this recognition for actively promoting animal rights in India, and fans cannot stop congratulating the man for it. It's a proud moment for all of us. We congratulate the King Of Comedy @kapilsharma for being recognised as one of the most viewed stand-up comedians in India and abroad and promoting animal rights by World Book Of Records. #TheKapilSharmaShow @001danishkhan @KapilSharmaK9 pic.twitter.com/shElmVvqih — Sony TV (@SonyTV) May 17, 2019 After a rough patch in his personal and professional life, that lasted over two years, Kapil Sharma finally made a comeback at the end of 2018 with 'The Kapil Sharma Show' on Sony. The show has been topping all the TRP charts on the channel and the reasons are pretty obvious: 1. India Loves Its Celebs & Masala Celebrity Insights © Twitter Apart from the kind of humour Kapil adds to the show, what makes this show all the more popular and interesting week after week, is the influx of big names from the entertainment industry. We Indians take our celebs very seriously and love anything and everything to do with them. And the good news is, Kapil brings out the best and worst scoop on celebs on his show, and people love that! 2. Senseless Humour © Twitter We say 'senseless' because that is what it is. No one is required to pick their brain cells to laugh at Kapil's jokes. Though it's true that most of the jokes ride on stereotypes and sexism has been a running trope on the show, guess what? When it comes to entertainment, people don't really give a shit. 3. The Concept Remains Golden © Twitter What caught people's attention and love in the very first go was the show's fresh mix of sketch comedy and celebrity talk show format, which then became India's own take on American late-night shows. To this day, it remains Kapil's biggest USP that he manages to pull it all off so well. 4. People Get (Un)Really-Real © Twitter However, the best reason why people have come to love the show and, in turn, Kapil, is because how (un)really-real people get on the show and yet, amidst all the fun and laughter, we end up enjoying that hour of entertainment at the end of a busy day.
  23. When social media became a 'thing', it was hailed as one of the biggest discoveries of modern times. People could re-trace their long-lost friendships, virtually reconnect with family separated by distance and 'keep-in-touch with friends and acquaintances by putting a personal piece of their life out there for the world to see, comment and sometimes, gain sadistic pleasure out of, at the expense of each other's pain and humiliation. © Getty Images Take for instance the recent disturbing incident in Kuala Lumpur, wherein a 16-old-year girl suffering from depression, jumped to her death after 67% of her Instagram followers voted for her to choose death over life, in a poll she held on her account. She had posted the poll with the headline, “Really Important, Help Me Choose D/L” where D reportedly stands for death and L for life. © Getty Images Can we please take a moment and acknowledge what has just happened here? A bunch of careless, sadistic individuals who felt all powerful when asked for an opinion pushed a young girl to her own death. We should cry bloody murder against all those who had the gall to participate in the poll, instead of actually reaching out to her and talking her out of it, or at least informing people who could have helped her out. People simply could not give two fucks about a person contemplating life and death, so please help me understand that if this isn't messed up, what is? © Getty Images People have become so insensitive on social media, that they never bother to step back and consider how their callous remarks can potentially destroy someone's life, their self-esteem and their very will to live. It's not a brand new development that this has been happening for a while now. So many people come under the bus because a bunch of people think they are entitled to an opinion (mostly unsolicited) which is best and unquestionable. © Getty Images These trolls, who are mostly faceless with fake usernames, sit in their dingy rooms and push a few buttons day in and day out to say things that gratify their personal sense of being, and bring down their target, one cruel word at a time. How long before we do something about how social media is quickly taking over our lives, to the point that we have come to associate our very existence and happiness to the number of likes or hate comments we receive from an unknown audience online? © Getty Images Sure, the 16-year-old was also at fault to have trusted her “followers” with something so precious as her life, but we must come forward debunk the belief that “our followers are Gods”. No, they are not. They are just individuals who simply come online to take a peek into our life and happiness. Some simply live off it as they are bereft of any joy in their own daily existence. Now, the Malaysian government is considering charging the participants in the girl's poll with the charge of “abetment to suicide”, and I feel they absolutely deserve it. People must be held accountable for their actions under all circumstances, and going virtual should not allow anyone to get away with all the painful things they say and do online. They are equally responsible as those doing and saying the same hurtful things in the real world. © Getty Images I am looking at all of you out there who love to dole out rape and death threats casually, sadistically cheer for online lynching and provoke online hate at random stangers simply because you don't “like” what someone is saying, doing, eating or wearing. Better look back and have some remorse about all the lives you have possibly destroyed in the time you've spent online as a hateful troll.
  24. We all grew up on gully cricket. No summer vacation went by without unlimited sessions of outdoor cricket and when that seemed impossible, we took the game indoors.

  25. Even though the spoiler ban has officially been lifted, I will still be nice and put a disclaimer. 'Avengers: Endgame' spoilers ahead. PS: if you're a true Marvel fan and still haven't watched the movie, I'm judging you. All of us are still talking about 'Avengers: Endgame' but Marvel cannot wait anymore. After making over 2 billion dollars with just one movie, they're already focussing on their next multi-million dollar movie, which is of course 'Spider-man: Far From Home'. The first trailer was all fun - Peter Parker going on a much deserved vacation to Europe with his friends - but now things are getting serious and emotional. Now, Marvel can actually show Peter dealing with Tony's death in 'Endgame' freely. It's good that they're showing him mourning the loss of Tony, but I wasn't prepared to see Peter crying. Not cool, Marvel. After the heartfelt moment, it picks up and Spider-Man is back to joking around. It's again all fun and game till Nick Fury shows up and hijacks Peter's vacation. Actually, Nick Fury just saying 'Bitch please' was the highlight for me. We've all analysed everything related to 'Endgame' to death, so let's focus our energies on 'Far From Home' now. Here's everything that stood out for me from this trailer and also the reason that the next phase of Marvel Cinematic Universe is kicking off with a great movie. 1. Peter Ghosting Nick Fury Like father (figure), like son? Only Peter Parker and Tony Stark can get away with ghosting Nick Fury, tbh. 2. Multiverse?! “He's from earth, just not our earth.” I'm already so confused by alternate timelines and time travel in 'Endgame', a multiverse will just make it worse. 3. Nod To OG Avengers All the Avengers are busy and the responsibility of saving the world comes on to a friendly neighbourghood Spider-Man. With that, let's move on to the next point. 4. “I'm Just A Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-man.” That is it, this has already made the movie for me. I can't wait to see just this specific scene in theatres. 5. MJ Knows He's Spider-Man First Aunt May, now MJ. Peter really is the worst at hiding his secret identity. 6. Mysterio Possibly Referring To Tony's Death More emotional stuff. While we don't know if he's talking about Tony exactly, I think it's safe to assume and not just because Tony has been ready to sacrifice himself in literally every movie. 7. Tony's Glasses That looks exactly like Tony's glasses, but what is Peter doing with them? 8. Iron Man Refernce With Iron Man's Glove? What is that glove thing? What is happening? Is he going to be the next Iron Man? 9. New Spidey Stealth Suit Yes, it was there is the last trailer as well, but it's still cool, okay? Thanks.
