  1. The desire to build something of their own and focus their grey cells honed by academic excellence in the field of technology, made two friends set out on a very innovative journey, which could change how the world views Indian technology. Akshay Singhal has been working in the field of Nanotechnology for the last 7 years and hold great knowledge of Nanotechnology and Material Science. Along with co-founder Kartik Hajela, the duo set out to build Log 9 Materials from a lab set up in Akshay's backyard. © Mensxp Log 9 Materials is one of our country's leading Nanotechnology companies that specializes in Graphene. So, while Akshay looks after overall research and operations of Log 9 Materials. Kartik takes care of the commercial and market introduction aspect of the products that are launched by the company. However, the duo swears by Graphene and the immense potential it holds. What Is Graphene? © Mensxp Graphene is the most advanced form of Carbon that exists in this world, which was discovered in 2004. Related to graphite at the core, but Graphene is different in properties. It is more conducting than copper and stronger than steel! It has such diverse properties that can be put to use in different areas across the board. What Does Log 9 Material Do? The first product that they launched when they were in college, was a cigarette filter called PPuF. Next, they began to explore the oil filtration domain, and the findings so far have been very promising. They came up with the Log9 Pad which is laced with graphene, which can bring about a positive change during oil spills by absorbing the oil spilt on the water surface. © Mensxp However, their latest product in the pipeline is the Metal-Air Battery. Kartik says, “The battery is still a working prototype and we are working on it. However, the essence of the technology comes in E.V.s.” Yet, the challenges related to belief have been real, both from the side of investors as well as consumers. Because both investors and consumers have a hard time placing their faith, that something of such potential can be developed and manufactured in India. Life at Log9 © Mensxp Log 9 Materials is a team of 34 people from engineering backgrounds, and they have scientists as well as marketing wizards. The company seeks people from the said background because regardless of what they do, they need to have technical competency. The average of the team is around 26 and most of them come from materials, chemical or nanotechnological background. These committed and ambitious people have come on board to innovate and build something that would impact the world. © Mensxp Akshay and Kartik want aspiring entrepreneurs to take that leap of faith, if they have faith in their own ideas and know that it will work. As for Akshay he says, “if you really want to do something, do it today rather than tomorrow. Also, hold your ground. Don't buy into or accept whatever is offered, but hold your ground and things will fall into place.”
  2. Sneakers here, sneakers there! Everywhere you look everyone is sporting cool sneakers under trousers, jeans and even tuxedos.

RS-X TROPHIES Every day we witness reinventions of “fame” as social media and YouTube create overnight celebrities. The design of the RS-X Trophies pays homage to that extreme reinvention of fame. RS-X REINVENTION (Original) Back in the '80s, the original RS (short for “running system”) was PUMA's innovative cushioning technology. Today, the RS has reinvented itself in the RS-X. X marks extreme. Exaggerated. Remixed. With its bulky design, material mixes, and bold color palette, the RS-X celebrates extreme reinvention. Aren't these cool AF? Get ready to grab this celebrity-approved style statement as they've just hit the stores. You can also get your hands on these kicks here.
  3. The buzz around Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer 'Gully Boy' does not seem to be dying down at all. It all started with Zoya Akhtar's announcement the she plans to make a movie inspired by the life story and achievements of rappers Divine and Naezy, which would also depict the lives of upcoming hip-hop singers and rappers in Mumbai at large. View this post on Instagram Aasmaan ko chukaar niklenge tere saamne @ranveersingh @dubsharma #GullyGang A post shared by D I V I N E (GULLYGANG) (@vivianakadivine) on Mar 31, 2018 at 8:47am PDT This was followed by the release of the movie posters at the beginning of this year, which piqued the interest of movie-goers and desi hip-hop fans alike! The teaser soon followed, and honestly, no one has been able to keep calm for obvious reasons! The teaser gave us a glimpse the rising rap-star played by Ranveer, and his portrayal and original rap 'Asli Hip Hop' has taken the entire nation by storm! Ranveer and Alia's portrayal of two youngsters who live in the fringes of society, but wish to realise their dreams and aspirations, have struck a chord with millions in the country. The trailer for 'Gully Boy' just dropped and it's a marvel how intimately the director has captured the struggles and fighting spirit of aspiring rappers in Mumbai, and traced their journey from the backstreets of the city to acquiring fame. Ranveer's serenades in the trailer is top notch music to the ears, and we can totally say that Divine's effort of teaching Ranveer the nuances of rapping are pretty evident. Ranveer and Alia's chemistry in the trailer is top-notch, and we can't wait to unravel their story. We are smelling a love triangle in the making, given that Kalki Koechlin also seems pretty taken by the rapper boy here. The trailer, with its many narratives, has effectively drawn us into the world of the underground rappers in Mumbai, who are trying to rise above their realities, setbacks and societal prejudices, to create a name and space for themselves. Ranveer's character is all set to take us through an equally emotional journey, that exposes the raw side of a struggling artist waiting to unleash his passion. Alia makes for an honest 'gundi', who also happens to be a loving and supportive girlfriend. The picturisations seem too true to life, and we're loving it! This is going to be one hell of a ride, and perhaps like fans and hip-hop lovers in the country are claiming, this film in all probability might bring about the hip-hop revolution India has been waiting for all this time. We have loved how Zoya has presented these young dreams on the silver screen, and it wouldn't be wrong to say that it's going to be a long wait till the movie releases. 'Gully Boy' releases on 14th February.
  4. The #MeToo movement has finally gained momentum in India over the past week, to name and shame sexual harassers and offenders, who have managed to be on the loose thus far. Tanushree Dutta's proclamation regarding Nana Patekar's alleged sexual misconduct on national television has sent ripples throughout the country, and over the past few days, survivors have come out in multitudes with personal accounts of the numerous occasions when they have been sexually and emotionally abused by powerful and entitled men. Some of the most popular names from the entertainment and media industry have been outed so far in the #MeToo storm that has shaken the country. Some names have come as a shock to fans and followers, but neither the accounts nor the trauma people have lived through can be discredited. While some of the accused have blatantly denied the allegations levelled against them, others have come forward to publicly apologise for their “misconducts” and “bad behaviour”, in the hopes of saving their public image. We bring you a compiled list of all the Bollywood bigwigs and media biggies who have been outed so far in the #MeToo Revolution: 1. Kanan Gill This one has come as a shock to many fans. Magali's tweet was quickly picked up by numerous news portals, and reportedly many other women have come forward to share their “uncomfortable” experiences with the comedian. One of India's very favourite comic artists, followers are hoping that his actions weren't intentional. Here's how it began, with a fan's account: This happened in November 2014. My friends & I were slightly strastruck so we went up to him to ask for pictures. It was just 8 ish but he was already really drunk, his breath stank. He kept hovering too close (loud music?) — Magali Vaz • Magalic.com (@magali_c) October 5, 2018 And when we did take pictures, he held my waist really tightly? Like such a strong grip was definitely unnecessary. When we walked away, I talked to the two women I was with & he had done the exact same thing to them as well. I still have those pics, we're all smiling & happy. — Magali Vaz • Magalic.com (@magali_c) October 5, 2018 I didn't name him before this because this always seemed kinda minor (& still is) I don't want to downplay but I also never wanted to make a big deal. But it did feel really inappropriate & it seemed like something he made a habit of doing. — Magali Vaz • Magalic.com (@magali_c) October 5, 2018 Gill later addressed the allegations raised against him in this tweet: I'd like to address this: pic.twitter.com/wMZ5FRaoro — Kanan Gill (@KananGill) October 6, 2018 2. Chetan Bhagat Bhagat's name coming up in this scenario, however, didn't shock many. A journalist shared some WhatsApp screenshots to present her story and expose the author of novels like 'Five Point Someone' & 'Two States'. Bhagat tried to “woo” the woman by exchanging inappropriately suggestive texts with her. Take a look here: And it goes on. Chetan Bhagat @chetan_bhagat pic.twitter.com/xyI9tSgfMc — ðSheena (@weeny) October 6, 2018 Bhagat responded to the accusations through this post on his Facebook page: 3. Rajat Kapoor Another personality that many of us wouldn't have expected to make it to the list, with his liberal stance and woke vibes preceding the guy at all times. The accusation was brought to the netizens' notice when journalist Sandhya Menon shared two anonymous accounts on her Twitter handle. One from a journalist and another from a colleague. Read the accounts here: I don't even know any more. Filmmaker Rajat Kapoor Two separate and different accounts pic.twitter.com/nBjNOsun3j — Sandhya Menon (@TheRestlessQuil) October 7, 2018 When the news surfaced, Kapoor took to Twitter to pitch his apology: I am sorry from the bottom of my heart- and sad that I was the cause of this hurt to another human being. If there is one thing more important to me than even my work, it is to be a good human being. And I have tried to be that person. And now, I will try harder. — Rajat Kapoor (@mrrajatkapoor) October 7, 2018 4. Utsav Chakraborty A known YouTuber and ex-AIB member, Utsav faced the wrath of numerous women on social media as many came forward to expose the guy. Main accusations claim he sexted women, sent them unsolicited pictures of his ***** and pestered women (including minors) for nudes all the time. First exposed by Mahima Kukreja on Twitter, here is one of the many accounts she shared on her handle: Hey Utsav. You give your number and slide into DMs of literal children. Like 17 year old girls? You're a creep of another level. pic.twitter.com/sjdJ5uf8dg — Mahima Kukreja ð±ðâð½ (@AGirlOfHerWords) October 4, 2018 Following the debacle, Utsav posted a thread of tweets displaying a weak case of a “heartfelt apology” which have now been taken down. The last one of his statements still available on the issue is this: It's a little too late now but I am sorry. I really am. The past 24 hours were a crucible. I faced a very scary personal truth. I can't think of myself as a victim anymore. Please tell me what to do now. How to make things right? I don't want anyone to be hurt anymore. — Utsav (@Wootsaw) October 5, 2018 5. Gursimran Khamba Another prominent face in India's comedy scene, AIB co-founder Gursimran, better known as Khamba, has also been accused by a friend and ex-girlfriend of inappropriate conduct. Her account dates back to 2015-16, here are the details: Gursimran Khamba from @AllIndiaBakchod. The survivor wishes to stay anonymous. #MeToo #TimesUp #BelieveHer pic.twitter.com/B9PTYJT8LE — hk {on a hiatus} (@PedestrianPoet) October 8, 2018 Khamba has since stepped away from the operations of AIB, and issued this statement in the light of the accusations against him: View this post on Instagram My statement on the recent allegations against me A post shared by Khamba (@gursimrankhamba) on Oct 8, 2018 at 2:30am PDT 6. Alok Nath Bollywood's most “sanskari” personality, Alok Nath became top news on Monday, when TV producer-writer Vinta Nanda came forward with her #MeToo experience, that not only disrupted her life but shattered her career too. The details of her account have shocked and enraged many. Here's what the man had to say during an interview with ABP, "Neither I am denying this nor do I agree with it. It (rape) must have happened, but someone else must have done it. Well, I do not want to talk much about it, as for the matter, if it has come out, it will be stretched." He further added that, "At one time she used to be such a good friend...today she said such a big thing. In a way, it was me who made her what she is. It is useless to react on the allegations, as in today's world, whatever a woman says only that will be considered. In such a situation, it would be wrong to say anything." 7. Vikas Bahl 'Queen' director Vikas Bahl has been accused of sexual misconduct by a former Phantom employee, who was a crew member of the movie 'Bombay Velvet'. She was instantly supported by Kangana Ranaut, who shared her own uncomfortable account with the world. This is what she said in an interview with India Today, "But still every time we met, socially greeted and hugged each other, he'd bury his face in my neck, hold me really tight and breathe in the smell of my hair. It tooka me great amount of strength and effort to pull myself out of his embrace. He'd say 'I love how you smell K'. I could tell something is wrong with him." Phantom production house has since dissolved, and this is what the former partner of the team, Anurag Kashyap had to say about the accusations against Bahl, which he knew of, but didn't take any action against. My statement in light of the recent HuffPost article and breaking up of Phantom . There are two pages.. pic.twitter.com/WCAsaj6uFR — Anurag Kashyap (@anuragkashyap72) October 7, 2018 8. Kailash Kher Another recent name to join the bandwagon is that of popular singer Kailash Kher. A journalist took to Twitter to share her story involving Kher: (1) My #MeTooâ â has singer Kailesh Kher & model Zulfi Syed, from when I was a newly appointed young woman photographer at Hindustan Times in Bombay, 2006. Tweeting this thread for all to draw strength & speak out â¤ï¸@photowallah@shubhangisapien@TheRestlessQuil@AnooBhu@weeny — Natasha Hemrajani (@radiantbear) October 6, 2018 (2) #MeToo I was sent with my colleague, a woman journalist, to take pictures of Kailesh Kher at his home for an interview. During the interview, this creep sat between us as close to us as he could. He also kept putting his hands on our thighs (on the skin above our skirts) — Natasha Hemrajani (@radiantbear) October 6, 2018 (3)#MeToo We were appalled & left as soon as possible. I discussed with my colleague the idea of writing the interview from the point of view of unwelcome sexual molestation but she said the paper would never publish it because it would be libel (even if we were both witnesses) — Natasha Hemrajani (@radiantbear) October 6, 2018 (4)#MeToo I've let a number of friends and colleagues know about this incident with Kailesh Kher and the main reaction is always a shaking of the head, and 'this happens, as a woman you've got to look after your own self' logic / expression. — Natasha Hemrajani (@radiantbear) October 6, 2018 Kher told IANS that he “doesn't recall” anything of the sort, "I was travelling and when I heard about this news, I got extremely disappointed to know what my state of happiness has been taken for. I am neither aware of any such act that has been mentioned nor remember it." More recently, singer Sona Mohapatra also narrated her #MeToo account involving the singer: (1) I met Kailash for coffee in Prithvi Café to discuss a forthcoming concert where both our bands were playing & after the usual, a hand on my thigh with lines likes, your so beautiful, feel so good that a 'musician got you' (Ram) not an actor. I left not soon after. (1) https://t.co/Cfz8Hf4sdP — SONA (@sonamohapatra) October 9, 2018 (2) That did not deter Kailash Kher though. On landing in Dhaka & on my way to the venue with the organisers, keeps calling me & when I don't pick up, calls the organisers phone to get through to me & asks me to 'skip' the soundcheck & join him in his room instead to 'catch up' https://t.co/beBehXBLup — SONA (@sonamohapatra) October 9, 2018 3)The fact that Kailash had sung in my studios & for many projects in which I was the producer & knew me to be as strong as i am or that he had only recently taken a favour from my partner @RamSampathLive to create a personal track for him didn't stop him. #TheHubris of such #men https://t.co/GLHvCsIPDR — SONA (@sonamohapatra) October 9, 2018 9. Abhijeet Bhattacharya The latest addition to the list today is Bollywood singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya. Here are the details: The man had the gall to give the most absurd response to the accusation: LISTEN IN: Singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya, who was accused of sexual harassment by a flight attendant has made an unimaginable comment, says that he doesn't want to give attention to fat and ugly girls, who are now coming out to blame people as an attention seeking tactic pic.twitter.com/asnKrdxyFw — TIMES NOW (@TimesNow) October 10, 2018 10. Prashant Jha The chief of bureau and political editor of Hindustan Times has been named in a case of sexual misconduct by a lawyer and journalist Avantika Mehta, and he has since resigned from his post. Read the entire thread below to get a better idea of the allegations: I'm the ex-lawyer HT correspondent mentioned in @MasalaBai's story. This thread includes photos of my conversation with prashant jha. you will notice I do everything and beyond to not piss him off while he says he wants to hit on me — Avantika Mehta (@bitingfriends) October 6, 2018 11. Mayank Jain Jain is the principal correspondent for Business Standard and was accused of sexual misconduct by The Wire health reporter Anoo Bhuyan on Twitter. Though the actual tweets are no longer available, we found this latest tweet on her TL: 24. Mayank Jain, the journalist I accused of sexual harassment, has resigned. . This was sent to @bsindia employees. "This is to inform you that Mayank Jain resigned today and his resignation has been accepted with immediate effect. Editor"#timesup — Anoo Bhuyan (@AnooBhu) October 9, 2018 12. Sidharth Bhatia The storm has also caught up to the founding editor of 'The Wire' who was recently accused by multiple women on social media. The establishment has since issued an internal enquiry into the matter. 17. @thewire_in asks victims with complaints to approach The Wire's internal committee headed by Monobina Gupta, wrt recent tweets against founding editor Sidharth Bhatia and also any other allegations.https://t.co/dk0aZNsw0z — Anoo Bhuyan (@AnooBhu) October 8, 2018 13. Gautam Adhikari The founding editor of DNA has also been named by journo Sandhya Menon in the following thread: And finally, one more calling out and I'm done. Gautam Adhikari who was the editor in chief of DNA Bombay. His exec assistant and I were think friends and we'd go out a lot.

Sreenivas Times of India's Hyderabad resident editor K.R Sreenivas has also joined the list, with a former employee sharing her account of sexual harassment, which was shared by Journalist Sandhya Menon on her Twitter TL: A former colleague at Bangalore Mirror just sent this to me pic.twitter.com/FUhbHodeEg — Sandhya Menon (@TheRestlessQuil) October 7, 2018 More names continue to crop up and the list shall be updated as and when more inputs are available.
  5. As you make your way through the back-lanes of Saket and enter Champa Gali, a beautifully laidback street lined with cafes and Parisian charm, a strong whiff of coffee hits you. The place is Blue Tokai, a brand that has taken upon itself to bring freshly roasted coffee to our tables. Matt Chitharanjan and Namrata Asthana, the brains behind Blue Tokai, set up the brand for this very reason – the need for a good cup of coffee. © Blue Tokai A former economist, Matt Chitharanjan had come to Chennai for work, when he met Namrata Asthana. When the couple moved to Delhi, the one thing they found missing was good coffee, like the fresh filter coffee they were so used to back in Chennai. In the North, the coffee that was on offer was the mass-produced coffee beans, sold to a crowd that had grown up on instant coffee. They wanted to change that, and connect the consumer with the farmer, a thought that soon became the brand's defining motto: “Farm-to-cup coffee company.” They wanted to bring the authentic coffee experience to the Indian consumer. Thus was born Blue Tokai, which has today gained a respectable name for its quality coffee beans, and has 10 cafes across Delhi, Mumbai, and Goa. The founders plan to open another 12 by the year 2019. © Blue Tokai In a country of tea drinkers and instant coffee, running a successful niche coffee brand doesn't come across as a very easy thing to do. Chitharanjan tells us how in India, the average person may have 70 grams of coffee a year as compared to an average person in Scandinavia who will have 7 kilos of coffee in a year. “India's never going to be a 7 kilo country,” he says, but he, along with Namrata, hope to create a culture of coffee drinking by bringing in more awareness about coffee roasts. They started out on a small-scale basis. With their savings, they invested in a roaster and began to take online orders for freshly roasted coffee. Though, initially, most of their consumers comprised NRIs and expats, they soon began receiving orders from across the country. Soon enough, they opened their first café in Saidulajab area of Saket in Delhi and there was no looking back after that. With 10 branches running successfully across the country, their sales have doubled every year. Both Matt and Namrata lay great emphasis on the farms that are the mainstay of a good batch of beans. For this reason, they make it a point to put the names of the estates on the various coffee blends they have on offer. Chitharanjan says, “They are happy to see that their name is out there and they are getting credit and recognition for the coffee that they grow.” © Blue Tokai To the outsider, it looks like the perfect entrepreneur dream – to sell a coffee experience with your partner. The couple clears the air, “People think we're spending our days, testing out coffees and travelling to coffee farms. The reality is that we're dealing with paperwork, managing people, dealing with customers, and negotiating with suppliers. It's not all that pretty.” Matt and Namrata don't mind the work – they want to create a culture of coffee drinking in India, and educate consumers about the process that goes into making a good cup of freshly roasted coffee. For the perfect cup of coffee, like good art, is one that appeases the senses. Watch them narrate their journey to bringing a coffee revival in a nation of tea drinkers.
