  1. Sometimes bad movies happen to good actors and it's honestly one of the worst things ever. And well, we wonder what is someone like Manoj Bajpayee doing stuck in a movie like Mrs Serial Killer. The Netflix crime thriller starring Jacqueline Fernandez and Mohit Raina along with Bajpayee released today and going by every reaction to it, just don't watch the movie and save yourself. Basically, the premise of the movie is that Jacqueline's character's husband has been framed and jailed for serial murders, so she has to perform a murder in an exact manner as the original serial killer in order to prove his innocence. I got this synopsis from Wikipedia and honestly, I don't understand it at all. Why is she murdering someone else? I'm not even curious enough to watch the movie to find out. People are trolling the hell out of it and are actually highly recommending it to anyone who wants to torture themselves. Okay then. #MrsSerialKiller is a movie you do not want to watch during this lockdown. Or ever. I write a quick review on *wearenewswale* on Instagram. pic.twitter.com/AcghqXwyZM â Apurva Bhardwaj (@foodandfreud) May 1, 2020 Oops. I've seen bad films, worst films but #MrsSerialKiller is on a different level altogether. Easily, the lamest film to have come out this year. Ridiculous serial killer thriller that tries hard to work as a comedy but makes a mockery of the genre in the process. Jacqueline 𤦠â Haricharan Pudipeddi (@pudiharicharan) May 1, 2020 Wow.

  2. Call it a sign of the times - as pollution, global warming, water crises and humanityâs constant greed for resources have risen, so have several key figures in politics, research and especially entertainment taken a stand to raise awareness and fight against the degradation of our planet. It isnât just Hollywood A-listers at work though - closer to home, several Indian actors have wholeheartedly used their wealth and influence to make the environment a priority both in their personal lives as well their social outreach. Here are six of the most dedicated of the lot. Akshay Kumar © Reuters Preferring to start at the grassroot level, Kumar has believed that cultivating a green mindset must begin at schools - hence his work with The Energy and Research Institute (TERI) focused on educating children through workshops, books and training exercises to develop a sense of responsibility and care towards the environment. Aside from this, the actor has taken on films such as Toilet: Ek Prem Katha which promote environmentally healthy practices as well - along with generous donations to wildlife conservation efforts such as for Kazirangaâs famous one-horned rhinos. Aamir Khan © Reuters Ever since 2013, the actor has limited himself to a single film per year, focusing the rest of his efforts on social causes and environmentalism. Along with film producer & wife Kiran Rao, the duo set up Paani Foundation - a water conservation NGO on a mission to help the villages of Maharashtra from droughts. They not only got down to working on the fields themselves but also helped safeguard the villagers' and environmentâs future by educating people on how to tackle and avoid the issue of drought in their villages. To date, the organisation has pulled in over 4,000 villages across the state - helping them become self reliant and drought-free. Ajay Devgan © Indian Express Asserting that environmentalism must begin at home, the actor asserts that âeven at home, Kajol and I make sure we do not misuse resources like water and electricity. I feel environmental awareness should just be common sense.â Heâs also put in the groundwork for several key environmental projects, such as supporting the World Wildlife Fund through donations while simultaneously investing in a massive solar park in Charanaka, Gujarat. Over the years, this initial fund has helped contribute to providing clean power to the district - an initial output of 25 megawatts has now become over 625 megawatts through the years. John Abraham © Reuters Long-known for his commitment to maintaining one of Indiaâs fittest bodies on the platform of vegetarianism, Abrahamâs philosophy towards the environment has resulted in partnerships with PETA and Habitat for Humanity. The former of which has led to awareness ad campaigns where the actor modelled in support of leaving animals uncaged. Back in 2013, the actor even wrote letters addressed to the Ministry of Environment and Forests - urging them to ban the horrific treatment of animals in Indiaâs circus trade. Gul Panag © Reuters Named after her grandfather, Panagâs Colonel Shamsher Singh Foundation addresses basic sanitation, waste disposal and effective employment of natural energy resources - along with volunteering and donation drives that the actress helped promote and bring into schools and other social spaces. While the foundation has done some commendable work in championing environmentalism and other important causes, Panagâs philosophy towards green living begins at home. Back in 2012, the actress along with husband, pilot Rishi Attari, began work on their solar and wind powered home on the outskirts of Pune - which had such a low carbon footprint it was eventually certified by TERI Griha, Indiaâs rating system for environmental home certification. Dia Mirza © Reuters Back in 2017, Mirza was appointed UN Environmental Goodwill Ambassador for India - a role that has seen her speak on the world stage, championing the cause of climate change movements, anti-pollution initiatives and more. Closer home, sheâs been a regular at organising cleanup drives on Mumbaiâs Juhu & Mahim beaches - promoting the avoidance of single-use plastic, a cause which Maharashtra went on to enforce and promote as an example to other states.

  3. With close to nine lakh active coronavirus cases across the world, the COVID-19 pandemic is not showing significant signs of slowing down any time soon. The virus is slowly spreading to new territories and adding more and more casualties to its list. At a time like this, when itâs become imperative to bring the death toll down, mankindâs only hope to get out of this alive lies in the creation of effective cures and vaccines that can neutralise the fatal coronavirus, and save millions of lives. © BCCL As the world continues to fight this invisible enemy, numerous organisations, researchers and scientists have been working tirelessly to come up with potential vaccines that can help the human race win this battle. Check out these 5 possible vaccine researches that are a silver lining for the human race right now. 1. Bill Gates Funds Setting Up Of 7 Potential Vaccine FactoriesKnown for their expertise in dealing with infectious diseases, The Gates Foundation is said to have invested huge amounts of money in setting up factories which will work to develop vaccines for coronavirus. The news came to light when The Daily Show host Trevor Noah recently released the preview clip of his upcoming episode featuring Bill Gates where the Microsoft co-founder can be heard saying, "We did fund some things to be more prepared like a vaccine effort, our early money can accelerate things.â © BCCL Gates also shared that the Foundation has picked top seven vaccine candidates and is helping them with the manufacturing. He also said, "Even though we'll end up picking at most two of them, we're going to fund factories for all seven just so we don't waste time in serially saying 'okay which vaccine works' and then building the factory.â Reportedly, Gates approved of simultaneously testing and building manufacturing units because thatâs the fastest way of developing a vaccine at this stage. 2. The Pittsburgh Coronavirus VaccineResearchers and scientists at the University of Pittsburgh recently conducted a study and tested a potential coronavirus vaccine on mice which showed a positive immune response to COVID-19. The response quantity is said to be enough to neutralize the coronavirus. The study has been published in the EBioMedicine journal which called the vaccine the PittCoVacc. © BCCL Reportedly, the fingertip-sized, sugar and protein-based 400 microneedle vaccine patch was able to create a surge of coronavirus-fighting antibodies within two weeks of delivering it. Speaking about how the vaccineâs core component was chosen, senior co-author Andrea Gambotto said, "We had previous experience on SARS-CoV in 2003 and MERS-CoV in 2014. These two viruses, which are closely related to SARS-CoV-2, teach us that a particular protein, called a spike protein, is important for inducing immunity against the virus." 3. Adenovirus Type 5 Candidate Vaccine © BCCL Recently, the World Health Organisation (WHO) shared that two candidate vaccines for COVID-19 have progressed into phase one of human clinical trials. Reportedly, the vaccine candidate is being jointly developed by CanSino Biological Inc and Beijing Institute of Biotechnology. It also needs to be noted that CanSino had earlier developed an Ebola vaccine in 2017 in partnership with the Chinese Academy of Military Medical Science's Bioengineering Institute. Apparently, this vaccine uses a Adenovirus Type 5 candidate composed of adenoviruses which âcause pneumonia and deliver potential antigens to stimulate the production of antibodies that work against the disease.â 4. Oxford University & Inovio Pharmaceutical Vaccine © BCCL As per reports, it is being said that scientists in Australia have started testing two potential coronavirus vaccines in its lab trials. The vaccines are being jointly developed by Oxford University and Inovio Pharmaceutical, and the the WHO has cleared them for animal testing. Reportedly, Australia's national science agency will decide if the vaccines work, and can be used as human vaccinations. 5. TB Vaccine As Potential COVID-19 Vaccine © BCCL Recently it was announced that scientists in Melbourne, Australia have been trying to utilise the 100-year-old tuberculosis vaccine Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) to test if it is effective against the coronavirus infection. The decision was made based on the observation that the BCG is effective in preventing fatalities in infants from a number of causes, and highly reduces the occurrence of respiratory infections. According to experts, the vaccine basically trains our immune system to recognize and respond to various bacterial, viral and parasitic infections. So clinical trials are being undertaken to ascertain if it will work against the coronavirus. View the full article
  4. âSix weeks ago, Dr. Erin Bruce, an anesthesiologist, and her husband, Dr. Michael Szava-Kovats, had their first child, a daughter. He agonizes over the thought of exposing his young daughter and wife to infection. He accepts that he may get coronavirus. The risks to his family are outside his comfort zone, he says.â This is the story, Dr. Szava-Kovats shared with The Guardian in a recent interview - words that must have echoed in the young ER specialistâs head as he shifted into an empty apartment owned by some friends. After five days of risky, back-to-back work at his resident hospital in Calgary, Canada, the loneliness begins to set in - worry about the future, the thought of not being able to hold his newborn child and support his wife during one of the most difficult medical crises the entire world has faced. He finds some comfort in routine - calling Dr. Bruce at the same time each day, meditating to calm himself before work and bolstering himself with the camaraderie of his team... but sometimes, things are just too much. âItâs hard because I want to be with my family. I am not doing this because I want to,â he says. Dr. Szava-Kovatsâ story is nothing short of heartbreaking - but it represents the daily reality for thousands of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals across the world, from New York City to rural clinics in sub-Saharan Africa. Here are a few stories from the lives of these selfless heroes, detailing the sacrifices theyâve had to make for us - sometimes paying with their very lives. Dr. Li Wenliang, Wuhan Dr. Wenliang was an ophthalmologist from Wuhan Central Hospital. He posted his story on Chinese social network Weibo from a hospital bed a month after sending out his initial warning. The 34-year-old had noticed seven cases of a virus that he thought looked like Sars - the virus that led to a global epidemic in 2003 - which turned out to be an early discovery of the now infamous Coronavirus strain. Despite his desperate pleas for caution, the Chinese government accused him of âspreading rumoursâ and âseverely disturbing social orderâ - a month later while in hospital, he shared the above video that went viral, and tragically passed away in early February. Several Chinese citizens stormed social media in fury - âThe truth will always be treated as a rumour,â read one comment on Weibo. âHow long are you going to lie? Are you still lying? What else do you have to hide?â Nurse Naser Ali Al-Shahrani, Riyadh#Watch: Saudi doctor weeps as he follows #socialdistancing advice as #COVID19 crisis continues and refuses to hug his child as he returns home from the hospital pic.twitter.com/KZvQtrOqAy â Arab News (@arabnews) March 25, 2020 In a heartbreaking video coming in from Saudi Arabia where the number of coronavirus cases have soared past 1,500, Naser Ali Al-Shahrani, a nurse practicing at King Salman Hospital, came home from a day of duty to find his young son Mohamed ecstatic to see him. Heartbreakingly, the medical professional was moved to tears when he realised that touching his son would put him at risk to contract the virus, and the confused boy is seen backing away from his emotionally distressed father. Dr. Sanjay Kumar Dhoteja, Punjab Doctors all over the country have been pleading with the general population to stay at home, while simultaneously working round the clock to care for patients suffering from the virus - and Punjabâs medical professionals are no exception. In a video shared by BBC News Punjab, Dr. Dhoteja along with his colleagues appealed to the public in an emotional outburst. âI havenât gone home for the last one month,â he said. âI got to go home for a couple days, 15 days ago⦠but I have a two month old baby at home.â Breaking down into tears, the doctor continued, âplease, stay at home, donât come outside. Please prevent this sickness from spreading. A very big problem has come into the country⦠you arenât able to see it, but we are.â Dr. Chen, Wuhan Remember, every single doctor out there on the front lines is someoneâs son or daughter - and watching them take on a disease with no discovered cure can be downright harrowing. In Dr. Chenâs case, the young medical professional from Wuhan had to quarantine himself after developing possible symptoms. Despite requesting his family to maintain a 2-metre distance at all times, his mother would show up each day at his apartment - carrying supplies and food to feed her son while breaking down emotionally. Dr. Chenâs sister who shot the viral video, says, âWe were so sad to see her crying like this. I cried too. Itâs a difficult time for doctors and for medical workerâs families - I hope all frontline medical workers can protect themselves.â She now collects supplies for hospitals in need. Fortunately, her prayers were answered when her brother eventually emerged from his quarantine without any symptoms. Nurse Kious Kelly, New York City When news of Kellyâs status reached his only sibling Marya Patrice Sherron, it was already too late - the 48-year old nurse was already being intubated in the ICU at New York City's Mount Sinai West hospital. Kelly, who had asthma, told them it was mild and that he was doing fine. "Heâs always been protective of me [and] my parents. I knew he didnât want them to worry," Sherron said. "I asked him a couple more questions, and he said he canât talk. 'I choke if I try. Canât breathe. I love you,'" Sherron recalled him saying. "And he said he was tired and he would lay down and wanted to go to sleep." Six days later, on Tuesday evening, the hospital informed her family that Kelly had tragically succumbed to the virus. Amidst a massive pouring in of support, condolences and financial assistance with Kellyâs funeral, his sister also received a scathing, hateful comment that targeted the heroic nurse for his sexuality - âsuggesting that [Kelly's death] didnât matter because he was a gay maleâ. Despite these disgusting displays of inhumane behaviour, Sherron has been overwhelmed by the massive amount of positive support her family has received during this tough ordeal. "Itâs humbling. Itâs unreal, really,â she said to Buzzfeed News. âYou feel like youâre not alone going through this." If you know any medical workers caught up in the forefront of this pandemic - do reach out to them today with a kind word or two - every little bit helps. View the full article
  5. Staying at home with limited social activity is a shared reality for a lot of us today, courtesy the coronavirus pandemic, and we have to adhere to that regardless of whether we've voluntarily decided to stay at home or there isn't any another option. With more corporates encouraging work from home by the day and cinemas, gyms, colleges shutting down, it looks like we'll be looking at weeks of social distancing. But what does social distancing even mean? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or CDC has shared a now-viral graph aimed at âflattening the curveâ amidst the coronavirus outbreak. 1. A very short thread on the power of data graphics and scientific communication. Roughly a week ago, some very smart person* sat down, drew this graph, and saved lives. (*It's 2 AM. Without an economist subscription, I can't quickly discover whom. Maybe someone can help.) pic.twitter.com/eU71Eu60eS â Carl T. Bergstrom (@CT_Bergstrom) March 6, 2020According to the graph, self-quarantining can potentially have a huge impact on combating the spread of COVID-19. Limiting contact essentially lessens the rate of infection and more importantly decreases the rush at hospitals. In a developing country like India, where resources have always been limited and don't trickle down as effectively, an outbreak can potentially be a lot to handle. Flattening the curve ensures that fewer people get sick so the hospitals have enough beds and resources to take care of the patients instead of an unfortunate situation wherein doctors have to choose between patients. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@jacquemus)So how do people practice social distancing? If you're able to work from home, then you should because a lot of people can't even consider this as an option. You'll have to cancel all your plans and instead stay at home. This is the time that you can use to do things like baking a cake, gaming or even reading that book that you've been meaning to read for months. While it may seem like a luxury at first, it's important to remember that social distancing is also a social responsibility. Instinctively, we all get alerted when someone sneezes these days, but besides that, it's also important to maintain a healthy five-feet distance. However, this in no way means that you're bound to your house. You can go for a walk or a bike ride, but again, whilst maintaining a safe distance. This is the time when subscription services like Milk daily, BB daily come in handy to even further limit grocery shopping trips. In general, wash your hands frequently and use hand sanitiser when unable to wash with soap and water. This may all seem strenuous and taxing, especially when you can't go out on dates, or go for swimming, or no hump days for that matter. But you should remember that all of this is temporary and social distancing, in fact, is a way to quicken the process of stopping the spread of the deadly virus. But hey, we don't live in the times of Spanish Flu which means that there isn't much you're missing out on, courtesy the internet. So there are still ways you can make up for all the things you will be missing out on. View the full article
  6. As far as the leaderboards go for the Coronavirus or COVID-19 epidemic, no region has been hit harder than the very epicenter, China itself. With 80,000 cases to deal with, you wonât see us booking a ticket to the republic any time soon - although one man thinks differently. Meet Dr. Amish Vyas, a native of Ratlam, Madhya Pradesh, who instead of giving in to pressure to return to his home country, decided to stay in Guangdong and help the virusâ victims. Working hard at a medical camp for suspected coronavirus victims, Vyas has lived in the important port city for over half a decade, and came to China to become a plastic surgeon - a lucrative trade in the country, where an estimated 16.3 million people go under the knife each year. He spoke in an interview of his commitment to the medical profession despite the risk of coronavirus infection: "As a Surgeon, I'm not afraid of any infection,â he admits. "I would like to say to my fellow physicians and surgeons that we are all one team, all over the world." Perhaps one of the more emotional angles to this story came out when Beijing-based news network CGTN interviewed Vyasâ mother Kavita Vyas, in mid-February this year. âI talk daily with my son,â she shared. âI am in a dilemma now, but it's my son's passion, and he had a promise to himself to serve and help people. His passion is for national and health-related issues, and if it's his passion then we also have to promote and support it.â On being asked how her son reacted when asked to return to safety, she said, âThis morning I asked him to come back, but he said if there is a war in the country, would any brave soldier run away? Then I was left speechless.â Another interesting twist to Vyasâ heroic story is that it mirrors another character from India-Sino history - yet another Indian doctor, who sacrificed his safety for a greater cause in China - Dwarkanath Kotnis, one of five Indian doctors dispatched to China during the Sino-Japanese war of 1938. © Wikimedia Widely revered through the Chinese administration, his death in 1942 was addressed by the likes of Mao Zedong, with a statue and memorial erected in his honour at Hubei - one of the worst affected cities during the outbreak.

  7. Jaundice caused by high levels of a yellow compound called bilirubin that is produced during normal breakdown of red blood cells
  8. God hasnât exactly been kind to Indian men, especially when we speak of body types and body chemistry. It is very easy for us to just grow out like ginger, even if we have a solid and balanced diet, it is extremely difficult for us to metabolise alcohol, and worst of all, for a vast majority of us, going bald is almost guaranteed. Male pattern baldness is a sad reality of like for most of us. © iStock Now, there are a number of ways using which we can actually put off going bald for a long time- again, eating right, using hair products that are simply the best and that suits us, or getting some expensive treatment done that replenishes your hair. With that being said, as a proverb in Hindi conveys rather succinctly, has anyone ever been able to stall the inevitable? What do we do when the gods of good genes and good hair havenât exactly been to us? © Panorama Studios Well, it turns out, even though you may be losing hair strands in hundreds by the day, there are a few simple styling hacks that you should consider if youâre going bald. Just ensure that you have a word with your hairstylist or barber in the right way, and you should be golden. © iStock 1. Pick The Right Style © Instagram/kartikaaryan Hairstyles that have you keep the hair a little upright and not fall flat is something that you should be aiming for. Also, it helps if the hairstyle that you and your hairstylist pick work well with somewhat of a long hair. A quiff or a pompadour are great options, which, because of varieties and tons of personalisations that they can be combined with, would suit anybody. 2. Decide On The Length © Instagram/arjunkapoor Now, this is a little tricky. Ideally, your hair should be long enough for a dapper hairstyle, but not too long that you need a ton of products to keep it in place. Also, it should be short enough that you donât get it tangled, and messed up, because messy and tangled hair, causes a lot of breakages, thus increasing your chances of hair fall. 3. Ask For Good Hair Products That Suit You © iStock Instead of going for regular shampoos and conditioners, try going for the ones that make your hair more voluminous. Also, pick a product that actually works for you instead of just borrowing stuff from your siblings or partners. If you tend to shed a lot of hair, go for an anti-hair fall shampoo and conditioner, preferably from someone who have no chemicals such as alcohol or sulfates in their products. Ask your barber for a few recommendations or if your problem is severe, ask a dermatologist. 4. Accessories As A Last Resort © Instagram/varundvn This is a bit of a last resort. If your situation turns out to be like that of Ayushmann Khurrana in Bala. No, we arenât asking you to put on some vomit-inducing concoction on your head on a Tuesday and sleep facing the north-west or some idiotic thing that he does. Neither are we suggesting that you go for a wig or those spray-on hair solutions. Instead, go for some really fun and dapper accessories - a fedora, a newsboy cap, or a beanie - stuff thatâs really in vogue. View the full article
  9. India's following protocol quite swiftly, with regard to the onset of coronavirus in China and some parts of the world, including India. The first Air India flight that left for China brought back 324 Indian nationals from coronavirus-hit Wuhan on February 1, 2020 at 7:30 in the morning. 220 citizens were sent to the Army quarantine facility in Manesar and the rest 104 were sent to ITBP facility at Chawla camp. © Twitter A second flight took off for China to bring back more Indian nationals stranded there, on Sunday, February 2. 323 Indians were brought back and along with them came 7 nationals from the island of Maldives. We're not sure how the protocol was handled but the flight came back with 7 citizens from the tiny island, and the Maldives Foreign Minister, Abdulla Rashid, took to Twitter to express his gratitude to India and the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. The gesture certainly didn't go unnoticed. The Maldives Prime Minister said that the seven Maldivian nationals will be housed in Delhi for a few days before they make their way home. His tweet said the following: â7 Maldivians in #Wuhan are on their way to Delhi on a special #AirIndia flight. Upon arrival they will be housed in Delhi for a period of quarantine. Deep gratitude to PM @narendramodi and EM @DrSJaishankar. Special thanks to Ambassadorsâ. 7 Maldivians in #Wuhan are on their way to Delhi on a special #AirIndia flight. Upon arrival they will be housed in Delhi for a period of quarantine. Deep gratitude to PM @narendramodi and EM @DrSJaishankar. Special thanks to Ambassadors @VikramMisri @sunjaysudhir and their teams â Abdulla Shahid (@abdulla_shahid) February 2, 2020 Rashid called India's gesture 'an action that reflects historic ties of kinship between the two countries and synergy between the Neighbourhood First and India First policyâ. Not only did he extend his gratitude towards India, Rashid also thanked China for all their help for taking care of the citizens. Grateful to @MFA_China, @AmbassadorZhang and local authorities in #Hubei for the assistance. A very special thanks to our Ambassador in China Ms Azeema and Ambassador in Delhi @aishamdidi and their team. Thank everyone at @MoFAmv for the hard workâ. 7 Maldivians in #Wuhan are on their way to Delhi on a special #AirIndia flight. Upon arrival they will be housed in Delhi for a period of quarantine. Deep gratitude to PM @narendramodi and EM @DrSJaishankar. Special thanks to Ambassadors @VikramMisri @sunjaysudhir and their teams â Abdulla Shahid (@abdulla_shahid) February 2, 2020 While India has already sent two flights and brought back close to 700 people, including 7 Maldivians, a lot of Pakistani nationals are still stranded in China, running pillar to post, to figure how to go back home as soon as possible, since their country isn't making too many efforts to bring their citizens back home. Indian citizens, on the other hand, are urging the government to help bring back the stranded Pakistanis on a humanitarian level.

In these troubled times, humanity should come before religion, economic policies or political struggle between the two countries. We should help each other out, in a global health crisis such as this and we hope the government can see through this and aids Pakistan in this issue. We really hope that this crisis is averted and no more casualties occur due to this deadly virus. View the full article
  10. More than five crore people of Bihar came out together on Sunday to form a human chain of around 18000 kilometers in support of environmental conservation and eradication of social evils. The âmaanav shrinkhlaâ or the human chain was formed in response to the call of the Chief Minister Nitish Kumar as part of the âJal-Jeevan-Haryaliâ campaign that focuses on protecting the flora and fauna with its main emphasis on preservation of natural resources and forests. According to Indiatimes, the efforts surpassed the previous records of 2017, wherein people came together to impose a ban on the sale and consumption of alcohol. And also in 2018 when the human chain for formed and the exercise was repeated to support the campaign against dowry and child marriage. Chief Secretary, Deepak Kumar told PTI, "Altogether 5.17 crore people took part in the human chain which was 18,034 kilometers long. The length this year was much longer than 14,000 kilometers of 2018 and 11,000 kilometers of the year before when Bihar first entered record books beating Bangladesh.â "A total of seven helicopters had been pressed into service for capturing aerial images of the event that was bound to go down in the annals of history as a record. Besides, more than 100 drone cameras have clicked photographs which showed the enthusiasm of the state's people, for which we are thankful,â he added. The exercise began at 11:30 am and the people stood around thirty minutes holding hands and CM himself was seen leading the chain at the Gandhi Maidan, Bihar.

  11. Almost everyone knows about solar energy and its various uses, yet in our fast-paced lives we've become so heavily dependant on using non-renewable resources to create electricity that we totally forgot about it. At a time when the world is struggling with major climate change, global warming and various environmental issues; looks like our 'prayers' have finally been heard, quite literally all thanks to a temple in Gujarat's Surat. In a bid to save electricity, the Badrinarayan temple in Surat switched to solar energy and installed solar panels on the terrace of the temple. But, that's not even the best part. The best part is, they are going to use that saved money to promote education in the region. The shrine has started a college and a school for Sanskrit. So far, 50 kilowatt capacity solar panels worth Rs 25 lakh have been installed on the terrace of the temple. Praveen Chandra, temple's trustee: The electricity bill used to be very high. So motive behind this was to save money. The bill dropped from Rs 1.5-2 Lakh per month to Rs 10-12,000 per month now. With the money that was saved, we started a college and a school for Sanskrit.(6.12) https://t.co/Ahm5yuiFB7 pic.twitter.com/kGuU2ga88g — ANI (@ANI) December 6, 2019 Reportedly, temple's trustee Praveen Chandra said that the electricity bill used to be very high, so they switched to using solar energy, "The motive behind this was to save money. The bill has dropped from Rs 1.5-2 Lakh per month to Rs 10-12,000 per month. With the money that is saved every month, the shrine started a college and a school for Sanskrit." Gujarat: A part of Badrinarayan Temple, a temple in Surat's Adajan, is being run on solar power. 50 kilowatt capacity solar panels have been installed on the terrace of the temple with an expense of Rs 25 Lakh. (06.12.2019) pic.twitter.com/iB0W1PkLke — ANI (@ANI) December 6, 2019 We hope that more cities and states learn a lesson from this temple and work towards the welfare of the environment.

  15. Lewis Hamilton, the guy who rules the asphalt race circuits all around the world recently took to his Instagram account to announce that the world would soon come to an end if we continue to eat animals. "Hey world, I hope everyone's enjoying their day. I'm sad right now with the thought of where this world is going,” wrote the 34-year-old Formula One world champion. i am lewis hamilton, lewis hamilton is me pic.twitter.com/PTOqMM3aEu — ðððð (@lovelyleclerc) October 15, 2019 "Extinction of our race becoming more and more likely as we over use our resources. The world is a messed up place. World leaders either uneducated or don't care about the environment at all. I urge you to do some research, find the compassion I know you have within you to recognise what you are contributing to in terms of what you eat which keeps the meat and dairy industry flourishing and therefore deforestation, animal cruelty, our seas and climate decaying on a daily basis. Go vegan, it is the only way to truly save our planet today. It can be done so quickly, all you have to do is put your mind to it. Honestly I feel like giving up on everything. Shut down completely. Why bother when the world is such a mess and people don't seem to care. I'm going to take a moment away to gather my thoughts. Thank you to those of you who do give a damn about the world." This is where the hypocrisy steps in. Formula One as a whole burns approximately 7 million gallons of jet fuel during just one season just to bring the “sport” to the fans all over the world. Which essentially means that even before the race begins and the “super fast”cars turn on their engines, F1 has already emitted a staggering 147 million pounds of carbon dioxide. A single formula 1 car emits 17 tons of carbon dioxide a year. So F1 is dull and bad for the planet too! — Jonathan Baldwin â (@jbaldwin) April 1, 2009 Personally, Hamilton turned vegan a couple of years ago in hopes of contributing to the cause of saving the planet. However, according to a Daily Mail report, the racer has his dog Coco fly from his Malibu house in his private jet to “catch up” with Roscoe, his second dog who prefers to live in the UK. The 5,400 mile flight between Los Angeles and Heathrow generates 1.67 tonnes of CO2. Lewis Hamilton concerned about climate change. Sweet coming from a man that fly's his dog around the world on his private jet... — Neil Johnson (@neil66johnson) October 16, 2019 So, maybe there's another way to save our planet other than turning vegan? Maybe Hamilton himself can contribute towards filling the personal hole that he has dug in our Ozone layer by simple having his dogs live together and reduce the number of trips his private jet makes? I mean, if he can ask us to turn vegan for the sake of our planet, we can at least ask him to reunite his pets Coco and Roscoe, albeit it will cause some initial discomfort the bulldogs. Alternatively, the sudden urge to write such a heartfelt appeal to his fans to boycott all animal-based products could be to promote the vegan burger joint that the Englishman recently invested in? @LewisHamilton goes VEGAN. Feels like giving up on everything. Well that's a shocker ðð I wonder if he will give up on his new business venture = VEGAN Restaurant ð NEAT BURGER £23 for 2 for shite (McDonald type) food + another £10 for drinks. ðhttps://t.co/tKjOhlFrja pic.twitter.com/AjULPAppH5 — Vin©ï¸ent Harris (@Vhtempopro) October 16, 2019 Which simply makes the whole scenario even more disappointing because that would mean that Hamilton doesn't actually care about the environment and just wants to make profits off the ongoing climate crisis. Twitter users called BS on the racer's phony appeal: @LewisHamilton I am super fan of yours. But this #Vegan malarkey from you is utterly unjustifiable. I mean how can I when you Drives cars that you do with tries and fuel you burn through, The jet that you fly in around the world in. I mean Seriously mate think about it?? — Munawwar Ashraf (@Munawwar_) October 16, 2019 Will you go to Berlin by air? Please have the vegan meal on-board as that will offset the rest of the emissions causing climate change. You'll be a real hero if you do. — Martin Lopez (@Martin_Lopez) October 16, 2019 You need to get @LewisHamilton on and ask him about being a vegan and wanting to save the world and then ask him how much co2 his car gives off at his work place @piersmorgan @susannareid100 — Kenny newey (@NeweyKenny) October 16, 2019 Opens up a vegan restaurant then uses his platform to extol the virtues of veganism - rather transparent ulterior motive there @LewisHamilton — Troglodytarum Vos (@sbbjenny) October 16, 2019 @LewisHamilton So you want everyone to go Vegan to save the planet BUT it is fine for you to earn millions driving a F1 car while jetting around the World??? Why not lead by example. — Paul Lister ð¬ð§ (@Paul_Lister73) October 16, 2019
  16. Haven't we always heard some wise man or go-getter say “follow your passion”? Throwing away those three words as easily as a pie. As if most of us haven't thought about ditching this sad-ass 9-5 cycle that our life is, or as if we don't want to go back to those easy days of long and liberating jam sessions we enjoyed so much with the band or simply never having to quit the thrill of preparing and participating in street plays. © Twitter But alas, here we are. Still stuck to our swivel chairs, constantly punching those damned keys on the keyboard or attending yet another useless meeting just for the sake of it. Somewhere amidst all this senselessness and need to “get on with life”, our passion ends up taking a backseat, or goes out of the window, to be honest. © Twitter However, while this might be true for most of us, there also exist some highly-motivated individuals out there who take their “passion” seriously and back it up with concrete actions too. UP cadre IAS officer Ravindra Kumar happens to be one such person. © Twitter Ravindra recently conquered Mount Everest for the second time, after scaling the mountain peak for the first time in 2013. However, Ravindra told the media that his conquest this time around bears special importance because he dedicated it to the cause of 'Swaccha Ganga Swaccha Bharat Everest Abhiyaan 2019'. © Twitter Ravindra admitted that his motivation behind the adventure this time lies in raising awareness amongst people regarding the quickly deteriorating state of water bodies in the country, and what it means for our country and the world at large. © Twitter Ravindra has even claimed to be the first and only IAS officer to climb Mt Everest. He also shared that through this 2019 Everest expedition he wants to urge people from the highest point of Himalayas, the source of major rivers of India, to save water at their personal level.
  17. Life can be pretty uncertain. That's the one thing about it which remains a constant till the time we are laid to rest. We never know what's in store for us in the next few seconds, yet we live our lives as though we have years ahead of us. That's a strange sort of optimism almost all of humanity shares collectively. So, when 32-year-old tour guide Rouf Ahmad Dar stepped out for another day at work, he wouldn't have imagined what awaited him later in the day. While he was out on a rafting trip with five tourists, their boat capsized on the Lidder river in Jammu and Kashmir's Pahalgam area. Rouf Ahmad Dar - a real hero who saved the lives of few tourists at the expense of his own life... Let's all pray for eternal peace to the departed soul and strength to the bereaved family. pic.twitter.com/0xYdfsRE77 — Arif Amin (@ArifAmin18) June 1, 2019 Dar went out of his way, put his own life on the line and rescued all the five tourists, bringing them to safety, but at the cost of his own life. Dar, who held a diploma in rafting, was on the boat when strong evening winds toppled the boat with the tourists still on it. But tragedy had already struck as Dar drowned in the raging waters of the Lidder and was later pulled out of the water near the Bhawani Bridge area and handed over to his family. The braveheart didn't think twice before risking his own life to save the lives of strangers. Setting the finest example of selfless courage; Tourist guide Rouf Ahmad Dar sacrificed his life saving five people including two foreigners in #Lidder river in #Pahalgam. RIP braveheart of#Kashmir @NorthernComd_IA @adgpi @PIB_India pic.twitter.com/bduKgnBiL2 — Chinar Corps - Indian Army (@ChinarcorpsIA) June 1, 2019 At a time when people are constantly instigating communal thoughts and questioning secularism in the country, selfless souls like Rouf Ahmad Dar prove that all of us are capable of moving past the politics that underline our present reality and chase after the biggest religion that there is - humanity. Bravehearts like Dar are cropping up in every village, valley and city to let people see the real face and sentiment that simmers in the heart of our nation and gives us hope that regardless of all the ugliness that comes to pass, humanity will always win.
  18. Khalsa Aid and humanity are synonyms that are omnipresent in times of grief and trouble. The non-profit organisation is always one of the first few measures of help when problems come knocking anywhere in the world. Last year, the volunteers helped the flood stricken parts of Kerala, recently the organisation was in Odisha helping people after the cyclone took a toll on the lives. Currently, not many are aware of the water crisis that has affected many parts of Maharshtra. The state is drought stricken and people are dying. The Khalsa Aid is currently providing 6,000 litres of water every day to help the situation. Maharashtra Drought: Our @khalsaaid_india team is providing water to the people of #Maharashtra (India ).

Sometimes all we need is a little reminder that we all are humans and we are all that we have.
  19. In a society where people don't want to 'meddle' or interfere in others' affairs, even if that 'affair' means someone dying on the road, can we imagine people going out of their way to help someone who is a complete stranger? Can we imagine someone coming forward to actually help instead of clicking pictures and recording videos? Ask yourself guys, How often have you gone beyond your way to help a stranger? But, Babu Muddrappa is different and probably that's the reason he deserves all our respect. © BCCL Babu Muddrappa, just like any other day, was driving his auto in Bengaluru. On April 15, while looking for passengers, his life changed in a way even he didn't expect. Babu saw a pregnant woman lying on the road, screaming in pain. Although there were a lot of people standing around the woman, nobody came forward to help. So without thinking twice, Muddrappa rushed the pregnant woman to a nearby hospital, but due to lack of facilities she was referred to CV Raman Hospital. Since the woman could barely speak and refused to give details about her family, Babu admitted her with whatever money he had at the moment. © Pexels Thanks to Babu's selflessness, the woman reached the hospital in time and gave birth to a baby girl. However, what happened next broke our heart, but also raised our respect for Babu. The baby was facing trouble breathing and the mother had abandoned the baby and fled the hospital. Babu wrapped the baby in a cloth and drove his auto as fast as he could, to take her to another hospital in Shivajinagar for better treatment. He used all his savings to admit the baby and took care of her like his own child, while praying to God for her health. From getting milk for the baby every day, taking care of all the hospital bills to going to police stations in search of the missing mother, Babu did everything he could in his capacity. © Pexels However, after a few days, the baby's condition deteriorated and she passed away. He told The Logical Indian, "My heart broke. I decided to bury the baby myself, along with some police officers. In those few days, I had developed love and fondness for the baby." He further said, "I do not know if the woman who fled will ever be found, or what will follow. While I feel sad every time I think of the little girl who died, I am also aware that I did everything in my power to help both the mother and the child." People like Babu Muddrappa make this world a better place to live in.
  20. The Met Gala is the annual benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute and this year's theme was 'camp'. People who are invited to this benefit take it very seriously which reflects in the outfits that they choose to wear to the event. Camp originates from Susan Sontag's 1964 essay where the camp was defined as an aesthetic “sensibility” with a certain admirable over-the-top-ness. Ezra Miller from the film 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald' was one of the celebrities who took the theme really seriously and turned up in what camp means to them. For Ezra, it was heavy eye makeup, ahem or should we say multiple eyed makeup. And the thing about this makeup is the fact that it's so psychedelic in nature that he had to carry a mask around with him so that he could cover up every now and then. The mask more than anything else contributes to the element of surprise to the entire look. Ezra turned his look into an illusion of sorts, as initially, he was hiding his face behind a mask. He draped himself in a white cape, only to keep his outfit a secret. © Getty Images Then in a dramatic reveal, he later ditched the cape for a pinstriped suit that featured a train. While the suit was interesting in itself but makeup stole the show. © Getty Images © Getty Images If you see carefully, you cannot look at the makeup for way too long which is probably why he carried a mask. What do you think? © Getty Images
  21. You see, it's actually true when they say 'not all heroes wear capes'. Ask someone who has known a superhero in all flesh and blood, someone who came into their life when their every breath was hanging by a thread. Call them whatever you choose - saviour, messiah or guardian angel, but the fact is, they indeed are heroes who have ditched the capes, and bear such courage in their hearts that's only second to a lion's. So yes, not all heroes wear capes. Some wear khaki uniforms, Indian Navy hats and even regular clothes, but they all have one thing in common - all of them would put their own lives on the line to save the people around them. Check out the inspiring stories of these 6 dedicated officers who went beyond the call of duty, and risked their lives to save others: 1. RPF Constable Jagbir Singh Rana © Twitter The RPF constable was most recently in the news for his bravery and ultimate sacrifice that saved five lives at the cost of his own. Constable Rana was patrolling the busy tracks between Adarsh Nagar and Azadpur railway stations when he was killed by a Shatabdi Express while saving a couple and some children from getting hit by trains. He managed to bring the couple arguing on the tracks to safety, but during a second round while trying to save a few kids, he couldn't get off the tracks on time and got hit by a train. Constable Rana died on the spot. 2. Lieutenant Rahul Dalal © Facebook While out on the beach with his wife at the Vypin beach in Kerala, Lieutenant Rahul Dalal noticed a gathering of curious onlookers along the beach. When he got closer he realised that someone was drowning and crying out for help. Strong evening currents didn't help the situation and stopped others from helping the poor guy. Lt. Dalal jumped right in and was almost crushed under the drowning man's frantic attempts to get to safety. However, despite the strong currents and the odds the lieutenant managed to bring the man to safety. 3. Constable Raj Kamal Meena Brave constable Raj Kamal Meena of PS Khyala saved the life of a boy drowning in Bawana Canal. Rajkamal went to Bawana for a raid but when he saw the child drowning, he jumped in the canal to save him. Proud of Ct Rajkamal. @DelhiPolice @LtGovDelhi pic.twitter.com/FDcwJJz4Gc — DCP West Delhi (@DCPWestDelhi) February 4, 2019 Constable Meena who is posted at the Khyala Police Station in New Delhi, was going about his work as usual one day, when he noticed some children playing near the Bawana Canal located in West Delhi. Since it was known for being a dangerous spot where many unfortunate incidents of drowning had taken place, he went to warm them. But by the time he could reach, one of the boys jumped into the calm and began drowning. However, constable Meena's quick thinking and courage saved the boy's life who could have drowned in the deep waters. 4. Sub-Inspector Gagandeep Singh © Twitter Uttarakhand cop Gagandeep Singh became an internet sensation after he stopped a lynch mob from punishing and taking away a Muslim youth's life, based on foolish trepidations that had provoked a Hindu mob to take the matter in its own hands. Sun-Inspector Gagandeep Singh showed commendable courage when he single-handedly prevented the mob from harming the Muslim youth in a Hindu temple, where he had allegedly gone to meet his Hindu girlfriend. 5. Constable Sudarshan Shinde © Twitter When a dangerous fire broke out at a pub in Mumbai's Kamala Mills compound, constable Shinde had been patrolling in a nearby area. As soon as he heard about the fire, he rushed to the spot. Some people had gotten trapped inside due to the blaze and excessive smoke. However, constable Shinde was able to help some of them who had turned on their mobile torches. However, when he found some unconscious people inside, he ignored his own safety and rescued them by carrying outside on his own shoulders. He managed to save many lives that night when the fire claimed 14 lives. 6. Head Constable Abhishek Patel © Twitter Head constable Abhishek Patel posted in Madhya Pradesh's Sagar district became a hero for 400 young school children after he risked his own life to save theirs. It was reported that a bomb was found near a school in Chittora village, and upon finding it Patel picked up the 10kg bomb and ran for a kilometer carrying the bomb on his shoulder. A 12-second video of his sprint had also gone viral on social media.
  22. On days when the nation's bravehearts are not risking their lives to protect us, they are still saving lives with their selfless acts and heartwarming gestures. Constable Gohil Shailesh from the 53 Battalion of CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) is one such braveheart who has now become the nation's hero too, after a photo of him donating blood to a young woman was posted on social media. Pexels (For Representation) Constable Shailesh not only saved the woman's life, but also saved the life of her newborn child. According to the post, the 25-year-old pregnant woman from Kashmir developed some severe complications (and blood loss) during her delivery and was in an urgent need of blood. Reportedly, the woman's family contacted CRPF 'Madadgaar', a helpline that addresses the medical emergencies of people living in Kashmir. The relation of blood. Constable Gohil Shailesh of #53Bn donated blood to 25 yr old lady of #Kashmir who urgently needed blood due to complications during delivery.

CRPF wrote in the caption, "His blood saved a mother, a child, a family and created a bond for life." People on Twitter too were in awe of this jawan and couldn't stop praising him for his selfless gesture. Actor Anupam Kher too took to Twitter to applaud the CRPF jawan.

  23. There is still some amount of compassion and empathy left in this world, where war and hate co-exist. People recognise the dire need for compassion that can change the basic ethos of the current negative situation everywhere and bring about balance in a much needed way. Just recently we saw a prime example of the kind of empathy we're talking about when oil-rig workers rescued an exhausted dog off the coast of Thailand, giving him an absolutely new life. The tan-coloured dog who was later named Boonrod by his rescuers, which means 'survivor from karma' in Thai, was saved amidst heavy waves, in the middle of the sea in the Gulf of Thailand. The oil-rig workers saw the dogs head bobbing up and down, while they were busy at work and they brought him up on the platform. © CNN Boonrod was about 220KMS away from the shore when he was spotted by Vitisak Payalaw, who went on Facebook to talk about the rescue. Vitisak works with Chevron Thailand Exploration and Production and he said if there were high waves while the dog was in water, they probably wouldn't even have seen him. He put up a video of the dog when he was found, on Facebook. © CNN According to Vitisak, the dog made it to the platform, clinging on to the support structure, without barking, whimpering or showing any resistance to water. The crew then lowered a rope and tied it to his neck to haul him up. The oil-rig workers suspect the dog may have fallen off a fishing trawler and couldn't find his way back to the shore hence. Boonrod has luckily found a home as well and guess where it's going to be? Vitisak has decided to adopt the dog and take him to his home in Northeast Thailand.
  24. The whole world is gearing up to watch superheroes in action on the big screens, but looks like the nation has already found one in real life in an Indian Navy officer, Lt. Rahul Dalal. People say that an officer is 'never off-duty' and Lt. Rahul Dalal's bravery and courageous act just reiterates the same. Lt. Rahul Dalal was enjoying the evening of April 5 with his wife at Vypin beach, when he noticed a person struggling in water. He was unable to swim and was crying for help. © Facebook There was a huge crowd, but sadly no one was able to help him. So, without giving a second thought, Rahul jumped straight into the water and rescued him within half an hour. It wasn't easy at all, as both Rahul's and the drowning man's lives were at risk because of the strong under-current. "The officer also had to deal with the desperate and panicked victim who was pulling him down, putting both their lives in danger. The officer calmed the victim and made him hold onto his shoulders, after which he started swimming towards the beach. Lt Dalal mustered all his strength and managed to reach the shore with help of some locals," read the Facebook post shared by the official page of Indian Navy. It was further mentioned, "The victim, however, was not breathing and was unconscious. When his mouth was opened, it was found that some plants were choking his air passage. Lt Dalal cleared the passage and administered Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation, whereupon the victim was revived." The drowning man, identified as Mr. Dileep Kumar from Aurangabad, was then rushed to a Government hospital where he was discharged after recuperation. Stories like these and people like Lt. Rahul Dalal are the real superheroes who restore our faith in humanity with their selfless efforts.
  25. In the wake of the troubled times, both India and Pakistan are facing, a lot of Bollywood celebrities are coming forward and talking about their experiences with war and turmoil and sharing a thought or two on the prevailing situation. Shekhar Kapoor too came forth to talk about his experience during the partition between India and Pakistan when he was a child and how his mother struggled to keep him and his sister safe, during the imminent violence that took place in August 1947. © Twitter Although the tensions haven't died down at large between India and Pakistan, these memories and untold stories by people who've experienced the wrath between the two countries, come in handy momentarily. And that's because we believe with these stories a longing hope is built to sustain peace and harmony. © Twitter Shekhar Kapoor took to Twitter to narrate an incident with his mother and sister during partition and this is what he had to say: "I was born in Lahore. My mother escaped massacre by hiding me n my sister under her body in a train to india. Playing dead. Most people were killed. One million people died in Partition. 10 million refugees. On both sides. India n Pakistan were created of the blood of one people.” I was born in Lahore. My mother escaped massacre by hiding me n my sister under her body in a train to india. Playing dead. Most people were killed. One million people died in Partition. 10 million refugees. On both sides. India n Pakistan were created of the blood of one people. — Shekhar Kapur (@shekharkapur) 28 February 2019 While we can't even imagine the atrocities bestowed upon him, his family and the rest of the people there, we're sure the incident definitely made him more resilient and tolerant towards the ongoing animosity between the two nations. © Twitter The BAFTA awardee also tweeted about Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman's return to India, after Pakistan initiated a 'peace gesture' amidst the stifling tensions between the countries. He said “#WingCdrAbhinanadan You have become a beacon of courage patriotism and dignity. And also a beacon of hope. We look forward to welcome you home soon, Sir,” #WingCdrAbhinanadan You have become a beacon of courage patriotism and dignity. And also a beacon of hope. We look forward to welcome you home soon, Sir ð — Shekhar Kapur (@shekharkapur) 28 February 2019 A few days ago, he'd tweeted again, asking people in India to not think of war against Pakistan, hinting at practising peace instead. He said “It's really important not to fan the flames of war rhetoric. It's not a game. U r not facing bullets or bombs. U r not the family praying and hoping fervently that your husbands brothers or fathers are safe. Nor living in border areas in fear. It's easy to be armchair soldiers.” It's really important not to fan the flames of war rhetoric. It's not a game. U r not facing bullets or bombs.

With Pakistan seemingly moving towards a non-violent approach and Abhinandan Varthaman's homecoming, here's hoping peace and calm prevails soon enough.
