  1. Indian opener Rohit Sharma has now scored at least 50 runs in every match he has played in during the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019. In the match against Sarfaraz Ahmed's Team Pakistan, Sharma did it in only 34 deliveries while giving the Men in Blue the ideal start to one of the most important games marked on their calendar. What a start from Rohit Sharma! He's raced to his fifty! â¡ #CWC19 | #INDvPAK | #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/Vy7r6cABaV — ICC (@ICC) June 16, 2019 During this feat, Sharma surpassed former Indian skipper and wicket keeping legend, Mahendra Singh Dhoni's record for smashing the most number of sixes in international cricket. While Dhoni has smashed the ball for a total of 355 maximums combining all formats of international cricket, Sharma's first six of the match against Pakistan got him to surpass this achievement of Dhoni's. After forming a brilliant 100-plus run partnership with KL Rahul, the 'Hitman' was able to score his second ton of the ICC World Cup 2019 in less than 90 balls, making this his fastest century among the 24 he has scored in ODIs till date. WHAT AN INNINGS! India opener Rohit Sharma brings up his century off just 85 balls. How many more can he add to his tally from here? #TeamIndia | #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/j1z8OSoCf4 — ICC (@ICC) June 16, 2019 What an innings!
  2. With the General Elections ending in favour of the Bharatiya Janata Party with a landslide margin in votes, it was time for the former Gujarat Chief Minister to retake his oath as the Prime Minister of the largest democracy in the world for his second consecutive term. On Thursday, Modi along with his Union Ministers were present within the premises of Rashtrapati Bhavan to swear-in their roles at the national leaders which was officiated by the Indian President, Ram Nath Kovind. Get more details about the ceremony, here. Surely, this was a great moment for the spirit of democracy that India follows and has been following ever since its Independence, the same however, cannot be said about the ruling party's official website for their Delhi wing, delhi.bjp.org. © delhi.bjp.org © delhi.bjp.org With a common message which read: 'Hacked by 'Shadow_V1P3R', various pages of the website were replaced with beef cuisines and recipes to make them. The home page, which consisted of some navigation tools to help the user look around the website was also replaced with categories like 'Beef Items', 'Beef Leadership' and 'About Beef'. © delhi.bjp.org As soon as the news of the BJP website getting hacked broke out, people got on Twitter to let the party members know about it: Dear @BJP4India, Your website has been hacked. How long will you take to restore the site this time? Yours faithfully ð pic.twitter.com/xDSwIwWL39 — Elliot Alderson (@fs0c131y) May 30, 2019 While they were cavorting in the forecourt of Rashtrapati Bhawan, someone hacked the BJP website with beef recipes... ð pic.twitter.com/GYySqDQasK — Priya Nashmikar (@PriyaNashmikar) May 31, 2019 Delhi BJP Website hacked.

Beef replaces BJP. pic.twitter.com/ApAgFzKWgR — NissimMannathukkaren (@nmannathukkaren) May 30, 2019 Even though the website was put under maintenance in a couple of hours since the discovery was made and fixed to go back live after being restored, the fact that their websites can be hacked so easily, without a single trace of who 'Shadow V1P3R' really is, calls for some really loud alarming bells, both for the party and their cyber cell.
  3. How would you spend your final hours if death was imminent? Would you eat the finest of the meals or get drunk, spend time with your friends or have *** because who knows what tomorrow holds? Well, before you tread ahead, let us tell you this post is dark and full of spoilers. The second episode of 'Game Of Thrones' season 8 aired this morning and among the list of things that surprised us was Arya-Gendry's lovemaking scene. Right before the scene, she was sitting with The Hound and realized that she doesn't want to spend her final hours (if they are her final hours) contemplating things or getting drunk and miserable. And here's the thing: Arya has really evolved over the seasons and especially after her training with the faceless man, her onscreen presence tried to emulate the qualities of a calculative assassin. But we've seen baby Arya draw a better bow than Bran in the first episode, we've seen her grow and fight the lady stereotype thrusted upon her. So seeing her grow up and have human desires was a little surprising. Here's what Twitter had to say about it. Stuff we didn't know we needed! ARYA STARK GETTING DOWN IS THE MOMENT WE HAVE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR AND DIDN'T EVEN KNOW IT. #GameofThrones pic.twitter.com/nsa78rw1yG — G (@GeeInSpace) April 22, 2019 Yeah, even we weren't, TBH!

  4. Look, I don't care if the video footage from 'Avengers: Endgame' has been leaked by one of the inside men of the Marvel Studios (maybe, keep a closer look at your men, MARVEL!) and sure there's that theory released by infamous Redditor who'd successfully predicted every event of 'Avengers: Infinity War' that has made the people of internet gasping for air. But, the Marvel nerd in me has somehow kept me afloat in such testing times when everyone is looking to ruin the whole experience for me by “accidentally” tagging me on the Facebook posts about the leaked footage. FYI - There's a special place in 'Hel' for such people (get it?) Anyhow, as a lover of Stan Lee's vision and Kevin Feige's touch to make the Marvel Comics an even better visual delight and attention to detail, I am always on the lookout for the smallest of hints and easter eggs that the brilliant geeks at Marvel Studios slide into the movie footage. I caught one such hint in one of the latest Endgame “spots” released by the Studios titled “Marvel Studios' Avengers: Endgame | "Mission" Spot” In the footage, Captain America talks about dividing the Avengers into various teams with missions allotted to each of them. “No mistakes, no dovers. Look out for each other. This is the fight of our lives,” he says as the Avengers assemble and raise their fists together. © Marvel Studios And this is it. This is where the clue lies. In this scene there are nine people making the circle. According to the rest of the trailer we are certain that Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Natasha Romanoff, Rocket, Clint Barton, Scott Lang are seen wearing the quantum realm suit, standing in that very circle. Also, according to the previous trailers we know that Nebula and James Rhodes also have been seen walking through the Avengers' plane hanger wearing the suit. So, who is the ninth character? We can judge by the modifications made to the suits and the length and size of the hands, we can make some really well-educated guesses as to who is standing where: Let's start with the very obvious one going counter clockwise: We can see Rocket, Nebula, then we have Rhodes' customised Iron Patriot suit, followed by Scott, Natasha, Barton and finally Rogers and Stark. However, the last hand has to belong to a physically bigger being like Thor. © Marvel Studios But if my theory about Captain Marvel's fate in the first half of the movie is true, then Thor will not be available to go on this 'mission'. So if not Thor, then who? I guess you know where we are going with this. This has to be Hulk! Getting over his loss against Thanos at the Argardian ship at the beginning of Infinity War, Hulk might finally be back. But, wait! There's more! Notice how calm and relaxed that hand is? Almost as if the Hulk isn't angry anymore. As if, Bruce Banner has some kind of control over the green beast. And believe it or not but In the Marvel Comics, there also exists a character like who has the mind of Banner and strength of the Hulk and is known by the name of Professor Hulk. Could this be true?
  5. It seems as if the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) skipper Ravichandran Ashwin is on his own quest to make the idea of 'mankading' an officially accepted phenomenon in the world of cricket. Well, the consistency and dedication with which he often tries to cheekily dismiss the batsman on the non-striker's end, most definitely hints at that. It is because of Ashwin's repeated attempts to do so and back his actions out in public every single time by saying that 'mankading' isn't against the rules of international cricket that he has created a sense of horror in the hearts of the runners who used to try and get a small advantage by stepping out of the crease while the bowler was mid-way into his bowling action. Having said that, one has got to agree that constantly keeping a check on something like this and that too on the non-striker's end, has to adversely affect the batsmen's concentration and in turn lead to bad performance with the bat. It is safe to say that one of these days, a player would kick back to Ashwin's actions and let him know how the rest of the batsmen actually feel. The day was finally here when in an Indian Premier League match between KXIP and Shreyas Iyer's Delhi Capitals were going head to head in the famed Feroz Shah Kotla stadium of the national capital. It was in the 13th over of Kings XI's bowling when the captain decided to go back to his tricks to dismiss the Delhi opener Shikhar Dhawan when the batsman was completely out of the crease but his bat wasn't. In the middle of his bowling action, Ashwin stopped, taking a glimpse where Dhawan was standing and turned around to knock the bails off the stumps. However, after realising that Gabbar's bat was inside the crease, he decided to continue to walk away to bowl the delivery. Dhawan, as we know him, did not want to let this opportunity escape to show some dance moves to his home crowd and mock the Chennai-born athlete with whom he once shared the Indian dressing room. WATCH: Shikhar's dance moves on the crease ð½ï¸ð½ï¸https://t.co/KtJkaIpubw — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 20, 2019 This was also for the second time in two overs that Ashwin had stopped halfway through his bowling routine to keep a check on the rival batter on the bowler's end and even the commentators acknowledged the fact. Overjoyed by watching Dhawan bringing social justice to Ashwin in the form of a comfortable stretch followed by what was a “twist from the '60s” according to the announcers, cricket fans expressed their amuse on social media: Did Ashwin really try to runout the non striker again? 𤠗 Dean Jones (@ProfDeano) April 20, 2019 Nice one from Gabbar 𤣠trolling Ashwin — DivyaSree Padupalli (@DP_DivyaSree) April 20, 2019 Mastermind, King and Gabber **The presence of mind** This is the reason they are in wc squad. @msdhoni @imVkohli @SDhawan25 — Pavithra (@Pavithr89452187) April 20, 2019 .@SDhawan25 you beauty!

  6. Giving up on people because they've let you down, whether it's your favourite athlete, a political figure, or your best friend, seems a bit polarised. Guess what happens when you stop working on your relationship? When you take your partner for granted, use him/her as a punching bag, and push them away instead of pulling them close? It nearly destroys your relationship just as your favourite athlete disappoints you in a game or your best friend betrays you. When you've been hurt, betrayed, or disappointed by someone you care about, it's hard to imagine giving that person another chance. But what if the person wants to return to you, should you give them a second chance and offer your trust again? Here are 5 sure shot ways that can help you ease your confusions and help make a decision: © UTV Motion Pictures 1) Forgiveness Is Foremost We have always heard to forgive and to give someone an opportunity to make up for past mistakes but not everyone is capable of doing so. We tend to think of forgiveness in interpersonal terms. Forgiveness seems to be a critical element but when the person apologizes, you accept it and don't hold a grudge or strike back. But you need to decide for yourself if you are able to forgive this particular person and welcome them back into your lives again, without holding any grudges. © UTV Motion Pictures 2) Inspect The Worth Of Revival People can change and can learn from their mistakes. They can turn everything around once again by becoming the person you were attracted to at the beginning of the relationship. You need to analyse if they deserve a second chance—and when you give them a second opportunity, allow them to show you their new side. You'd like people to treat you the same way, wouldn't you? © Zee Studios 3) Empathising Is The Key Turn the tables and imagine that it's you who needs the second chance. Wouldn't you feel better if you were given an opportunity to try again? Whether it's the car you've been hired to fix or the relationship that took a turn for the worse due to your own mistakes, it's nice to know that someone is willing to give you a chance to redeem yourself. © Yash Raj Films 4) Check Credibility The first thing to decide is whether you can rebuild your relationship and learn to trust your partner again. This is incredibly difficult! Take a deep breath, and think about it: can you convince yourself to trust them again. If so, then maybe you should give them a second chance. © UTV Motion Pictures 5) Converse With Each Other Now, once you evaluate things on your part, talk everything over. Focus primarily on what led to you two breaking up in the first place. Whose fault was it? Was it necessary? These are all the things you two need to talk through so that there won't be any unfinished business when you two reconcile. A second chance is something to hold on to. Once you get it, you can't think that it won't be slightly awkward at the start. Take your time with each other before and during the relationship. Gaining someone's trust and affection back is extremely hard. Restart the relationship on a hopeful note that this time around, things will be different.
  7. It takes more than mere skills to face the camera and enact a scene based on a narration and some lines peeking at you from between the white sheets of paper dabbed in black ink. It takes more than a few years of training at a film school, or the sweat and tears you expend backstage for every play that's presented in the theatres. There is a lot more that goes into the making of an actor. The talent and skills are but mere prerequisites in this line of work. So even before the cameras start rolling and the call to action is barked, it is an actor's struggles, continuous reinvention and unceasing passion for the craft that makes an actor, one who is worthy of spending our precious three hours over. © Instagram Irrfan Khan undoubtedly tops the list when it comes to actors who are worth every single 'paisa' of our money, and every minute of our time that we spend watching him spill his magic on-screen. Irrfan's journey in the Hindi film industry is a psychedelic, riveting montage of the many characters he portrayed to perfection throughout an acting career spans over 30 long years! From a meager role of a letter writer in Mira Nair's 'Salaam Bombay!' in 1988, to playing a jilted husband with a streak of wickedness about him Abhinay Deo's 'Blackmail' (2018), Irrfan's journey in Bollywood has almost all the shades of the colour (read acting) palette to his credit. © Instagram The big guns of the industry lost a bit of their sheen against the glory of this actor who persistently worked his way up the ladder. From often being a comic relief or kept at the sidelines as a prop to the larger storyline, he made his own path with titles such as 'Haasil', 'Maqbool', 'Life In A Metro' and 'Yeh Saali Zindagi' under his belt. However, it would be the 2012 release 'Paan Singh Tomar' that would finally bring Irrfan Khan his due in the Bollywood industry. Every actor and directed stopped and took notice of the actor who brought soldier-turned-bandit Paan Singh Tomar to life on the silver screen. © Instagram Soon enough people fell in love with this ruggedly handsome man, raw around the edges and bearing a sheepish smile, who was running his own race. The dark horse was finally here, and people simply couldn't get enough of the underdog making it to the “elite” category. 'The Lunchbox' was another massive win for the terrific actor, followed by marvels such as 'Qissa', 'Piku' 'Talvar', 'Madaari', 'Hindi Medium', and 'Qarib Qarib Singlle' that allowed us to witness and appreciate the actor who was changing the face of Hindi cinema one film at a time. © Instagram The wheels of fortune turned for Irrfan and this time it was not just Bollywood, but Hollywood too that wanted more of him on-screen. Hollywood had found the modern day actor for all things Indian. However, the roles Irrfan was being offered were not average, with limited screen presence like his predecessors. Irrfan bagged diverse, meaty roles in big Hollywood films such as 'The Warrior', 'Namesake', 'Jurassic World' 'Life of Pi' and 'The Inferno'. Now they say, with all the good comes a little of the bad, and the same came true for Irrfan. Last year in March, Irrfan announced that he had been diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour and left for London soon after to undergo treatment for his condition. © Instagram All through his treatment the actor kept his fans and well-wishers updated about his condition and the progress he had made with the treatment. The past year was also the time when Irrfan had the time to introspect and come to terms with the bigger truth of life. Irrfan not only accepted the vulnerability of human life, but he was also vocal about the fact that at the end of the day we are nothing but human beings on this journey called life. © Instagram After a length of a long, arduous year, the 'Karwaan' actor officially announced that he is back in the game after kicking cancer to the curb - stronger than ever, and grateful for a second chance at life. He took to Twitter and shared that, “Maybe somewhere in the pursuit of winning, we forget how much it means to be loved. In our vulnerability, we are reminded. As I leave my footprints onto these steps of my life, I want to pause to be grateful for receiving your immense love and support, it soothed me in my process of healing. So I travel back to you, thanking you from the bottom of my heart.” © Instagram The picture that accompanied this post warmed our hearts, and we are equally thankful to get one of our best back. All of us are looking for his next film to hit the screens ASAP, and for now it seems there won't be a long wait. Irrfan's journey is proof that once a winner, always a winner.
  8. Let's begin with two things: 1. As we all know, fake news is one of the best ways to grab people's attention. 2. Also, Conor McGregor just announced his retirement for a second time, hours after talking of his next fight in July. Now, how are these two sentences related, you ask? Rumour has it that this announcement is another publicity stunt from the extravagant UFC fighter, who is notorious for his outside-of-the-ring statements. Hey guys quick announcement, I've decided to retire from the sport formally known as “Mixed Martial Art” today. I wish all my old colleagues well going forward in competition. I now join my former partners on this venture, already in retirement. Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas! — Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) March 26, 2019 The Irishman announced, on social media, about his retirement from mixed martial arts. He called this news a 'quick announcement'. But this news does not seem that easy to digest as the 30-year-old, hours before this announcement, discussed on “The Tonight's Show with Jimmy Fallon” details about his future bouts. “We're in talks for July. There's a lot of politics going on, it's a mad game, the fight game,” he said. “To my fans, I am in shape and I am ready. There are many opponents, in reality I can pick who I please.” © AP Adding to which he said, “I don't necessarily need to fight. I am set for life, my family is set for life. We are good, but I am eager to fight. We will see what happens, but I am just staying ready.” Having been away from the octagon since his loss to Khabib Nurmagomdeov, the UFC lightweight champion, Mcgregor was serving a six-month ban for the post-match brawl that ensued with the Russian and his contingent. Soon after his tweet, sports enthusiasts around the world sarcastically reacted to his announcement calling it fake and a bait to grab attention. We haven't yet forgotten when, in April 2016, Mcgregor had pulled off a similar stunt after not being awarded a rematch with Nate Diaz. And now, quitting at a time when he is perfectly in shape, seems a bit off to all UFC fans around the world.

Only time will reveal the truth behind this new McGregor saga. In the meantime, let us know how much honesty you find in his recent 'retirement.'
  9. In January, there were rumours that Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir is joining politics. Back then, he clarified all those rumours saying that there's no truth in it.

At the moment, I am merely a retired cricketer who like all of you is waiting for India's series win in Australia. — Gautam Gambhir (@GautamGambhir) January 3, 2019 What sounded as some baseless rumour two months ago has now turned into reality after the left-handed-batsman officially joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today. The announcement was made in the presence of BJP President Amit Shah and Union ministers Ravi Shankar Prasad and Arun Jaitley.

If sources are anything to go by, then Gambhir may contest the upcoming Lok Sabha election that begins in April, from New Delhi. © Twitter Twitter has been buzzing ever since the announcement was made. While some stand in support of his decision to join politics, others are trolling him for denying the news earlier and now joining politics. Wish you well @GautamGambhir.

  10. A British man who was HIV-Positive has become the second adult in the world to be cleared of the AIDS virus. Christened as “the London patient”, he got a second chance at a healthy life after receiving a bone marrow transplant from an HIV resistant donor. If you are wondering how that might be possible, then listen up. The donor, who is not related to the patient has a genetic mutation that is known as “CCR5 delta 32” which grants resistance to HIV virus! Imagine the possibilities this mutation has given rise to. © Twitter The London patient contracted HIV in 2003 and it was because of Ravindra Gupta, a professor and an HIV biologist, who was then working at University College London, and was co-leading a team of doctors treating the man, that this discovery could be made. It has almost been three years since the London patient received the bone marrow transplant and over 18 months since he has come off antiretroviral drugs, and recent, highly sensitive tests have still not shown any trace of an HIV infection relapse. However, though Professor Gupta told the media that, "There is no virus there that we can measure. We can't detect anything", he also added that his patient was "functionally cured" and "in remission", but reminded everyone that "it's too early to say he's cured." © theconversation However, scientists are taking this case as proof that they will be able to end AIDS one day. The world met its first functionally cured HIV patient in 2007, named Timothy Brown. Brown had received a similar treatment in Germany and came to be known as the Berlin patient. Brown has since moved to the US and according to experts, is still HIV-free. These discoveries are making us more hopeful of a future where fatal diseases such as AIDS and cancer will finally get cured.
  11. Ahead of the second ODI between India and the visiting Australian cricket team, Indian all-rounder Kedar Jadhav has come up with some words of praise for former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni as one of the most steady pillars of the squad. A self-proclaimed fan of the legend from Ranchi, Jadhav marvelled at his idol's brilliant innings against the dominating cricketers from Down Under during the first ODI match, as they built a formidable partnership of 141 runs while chasing a challenging total of 236 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad. MS Dhoni finishes it off in style. Kedar Jadhav (81*) and MS Dhoni (59*) hit half-centuries as #TeamIndia win by 6 wickets and take a 1-0 lead in the 5 match ODI series #INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/HHA7FfEDjZ — BCCI (@BCCI) March 2, 2019 While Jadhav had an impressive 81-run innings, it was all because of Dhoni's ability to stick to the crease on the other side that gave him the confidence to go for the big hits. “I can't put it out in words. Every time I see Mahi bhai, it instills confidence in me. That sort of aura is like, that you see him and feel that 'I will deliver today'. He has the knack of getting the best out of every player and that's what everybody loves about him.” Jadhav has also come out and complemented Dhoni's ability to calm his teammates down before a big game or tough circumstances. Talking about his affection towards the wicketkeeper, Kedar recalled his debut series: “The kind of cricketer I am today is because of him. He has always encouraged me… He had seen me in Zimbabwe first and in the New Zealand series at home in 2016, he just wanted two overs from me and luckily for me in my second over, I got two wickets.” No doubt Dhoni has been one of the most successful captains of the Indian cricket team and a huge reason behind his excellence in that role, was his ability to mould himself according to the situation, a leader, a batsman, a wicketkeeper, a mind-reader, you name it, he's done it. Despite being flaked with hate-mails after his game in the T20I series loss against the Aussies, Dhoni has yet against proved his haters wrong.
  12. One of the first prerequisites to date someone successfully is seeing how you're first date ever went with them to give them a second chance! That's how dating life get's a lifeline if you don't screw up on the first date or avoid a 'red flag' situation; then there is a bright chance for you to be a part of the second date. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images So, in order to have the 'perfect' first date, here are 5 prominent red flags you can and should avoid and get to see the girl you really like for the second date! (1) Don't Act Miserly It's a date for heaven's sake, not a night out with the boys! So, if you do get the bill and you're splitting it, don't become a miser for the last rupee she may have left! What I mean is stop splitting the bill to the T and making sure she pays every penny of the split. Offer to pay and if she wants to go dutch just let her decide how she would like to. Either by paying cash or splitting the amount on the debit card is her call and you don't have to do severe math and waste time on the bill! (c)Pintrest (2) Do Not Treat The Wait Staff Like Shit If you're out and about and don't show any decency to the support staff at restaurants and hotels then you're in for trouble my friend. Let me tell you, the biggest red flag is unkindness and if you act like an entitled man where you shouldn't be acting like one, she's definitely going to strike you out. Women determine a man's character by the way he holds a conversation with other people as well. So, if you treat someone poorly, she's going to show you the door! (c)Pintrest (3) Don't Force Anything Women have a mind of their own and they like to speak it whenever necessary. So, there isn't a point in you telling her what to do or how to do it really. In fact that's a big turn off. Of course decide the evening unanimously, I am not saying let her take charge of the evening but steer clear of the things she rather not like you do. Understand consent and what it really means before taking any steps forward. If she doesn't want to come back home with you or invite you to hers, don't force her to do the same, it'll really not go down well. Have fun on your first date, don't dictate terms or be forceful. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images (4) Keep A Check On Your Alcohol Intake First dates are markers for the second date. It's a good time to realise for both you and her whether or not you'd like a second date. So, it's best to keep your inhibitions in check and maybe not splurge on alcohol and get absolutely wasted. I mean if that's the plan to have some unadulterated fun, then go ahead but if you really want to get to know her and remember it the next day, it's wise to hold your drink. If both of you decide to get wasted then I guess that makes for a successful good first date too! (c)Pintrest (5) Misogyny Is Never Welcomed Misogyny could come under any form. You describing your ex in bad taste, you generalising other women, showing off about your work and putting others down, it takes all forms and shapes and more often than not we don't realise when we're being misogynists because of our conditioning. So it will be good if you're mindful of how you structure your words during a conversation with her. Even saying something as simple as ' you're not like the other women' can be termed as misogynistic. You may not realise it and you may think you're praising her but in reality you're insulting all the other women. Honestly, it's offensive to say the least. Give her more prominent compliments and keep the misogynistic comments in check! (c)Pintrest There are other red flags such as bad grooming and table manners, lack of confidence etc. but these 5 are very prominent because they tell a woman a lot about your conditioning as a man and talk more about your basic inherent mannerisms. A girl does judge a man by the most basic and fundamental manners he may possess and if you have these all sorted, you're definitely a liable candidate for the second date!
  13. Rewinding time is not possible, but 'do-overs' are. Not many get an opportunity to right their wrong. But Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have got one where they can win over the fans with a good performance on the field. After being suspended for their misdemeanour on the popular chat show 'Koffee With Karan', the duo finally had some good news as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) lifted their respective bans with immediate effect. In its press release, BCCI claimed: “Hardik Pandya will be sent to New Zealand to join the team at the earliest and KL Rahul will join the India A squad to play the last 3 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) against England Lions.” It was a much-needed step, as finalising the Indian Team's squad for the World Cup is the need of the hour. Hardik Pandya being a handy batting allrounder, can provide good depth in the batting unit and can prove to be an asset in the pace department for the team. With Virat Kohli out for the last two ODIs and the T20I series, along with Vijay Shankar not being able to cement his position in the team, the bets of Pandya making the cut for India's playing XI are really high. © Reuters And to be honest, Kohli in his past interviews has always talked about strengthening his pace attack by having three pacers. Pandya's presence would bolster the pace attack, easing the pressure on the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami. On the other hand, getting some game-time with the India A squad, KL Rahul can surely use the opportunity to rediscover his lost form and probably return to the national team just in time for the ICC mega event in England. © Reuters Following their nightmarish experience that lasted a bit longer than one would have expected, these two youngsters can now focus on their game in a bid to reclaim the love and trust of the fans.
  14. This year, we saw a lot of brands coming up with a sliding design. The addition of moving parts has never been a bright idea for a portable device like a mobile phone, but companies still went ahead and added sliding camera modules to eliminate the notch. The elimination of the notch meant a better screen-to-body ratio, and we gotta say, the automatic pop-up camera did look cool. Vivo was among the first few to come up with a sliding camera phone, and the NEX was one of them. Now, the brand is back with the successor of the phone, and the idea of a sliding camera module has been completely eliminated. We expected the successor to be called NEX 2 but instead, it has been dubbed the Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition. © Vivo Now, Vivo wants to try something new and has added a huge display on the back of the phone a well. While we've seen a similar concept onboard the Russian Yotaphone, the NEX stands apart thanks to its 3D TOF stereo camera. The front has a 6.39-inch bezel-less display while the rear has a 5.49-inch screen and both have an AMOLED panel and Full HD resolution. As expected of a flagship device, the Vivo NEX Dual is powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset and will be available in 10GB of RAM coupled with 128GB of non-expandable storage. © YouTube/Engadget The back has some space on the top where the camera module, consisting of a 12-megapixel primary sensor backed with a 2-megapixel secondary lens, is located. A "Lunar Ring" on the back of the device is functional as well and acts as a soft flash for low-light selfie shots. The ring also changes colour to signify app notifications. Another unique addition to the phone is a time of flight (TOF) 3D module. It maps objects by firing pulses of light and then measuring the time taken for that light to return, which will allow for accurately modeling your face for more secure facial recognition, as well as for personalized beautification. © Vivo The phone runs on Funtouch OS 4.5 that's based on the latest Android 9 Pie. The phone is also equipped with an in-display fingerprint reader and the phone is expected to go on sale in various regions soon. In China, it is priced at CNY 4,998 (Rs 52,000).
  15. We're all indecisive at some point in time in our lives. Be it a big decision or a small one, sometimes it's alright to be indecisive, so you can get clarity through the confusion. But more often than not, being indecisive is not that great a thing if you're a constant at it. It shows to the world that you're under confident and a scatter brain and that's usually not the best impression to have upon someone. While you can take your time and ponder upon things, which are probably more impactful because they're more important to you, you shouldn't display your indecisiveness in places where it can pose as a potential misfit for you! © Pinterest By that I clearly mean when you're just getting to know a girl, the little things that you do with regard to being indecisive can really play against you and you may end up annoying the girl you're with. While indecisiveness is okay when you're making bigger life decisions it's not okay while you're with someone and have met them for the first time and here are three ways to absolutely avoid being indecisive (1) Have A Plan In Mind Usually if you're asking the girl out, it has to be a planned effort and you definitely shouldn't act like you don't know what to do or where to go. Have a plan in mind. You don't necessarily have to tell her the entire plan but can let her in on the details step by step. Or you can narrate the plan to her and if she has any inputs or changes then she can tell you straight up. But don't be a guy without a plan. That'll really annoy her. If she's asking you 'what are we doing'? and you answer 'I don't know you tell me', you're just in for a world of abandonment by her! © Pinterest (2) Don't Have Multiple Plans That's another problem if you're indecisive. You can never decide what to do so you end up making a number of plans. Which isn't a bad thing. It's always good to have options and plan B's in hand . Just don't get confused or give her too many options. if you can't decide then go with your gut or just lay out the best plans to her and she can take a pick accordingly. © Pinterest (3) Don't Change Plans If You've Made Them If you've already made plans, then don't change them last minute because that reflects badly on your ability to carry out plans. Stick to plan and if you have to have a last minute change then make sure it's comfortable for her to adjust to, so she doesn't feel pressurised in any way. © Pinterest Indecisiveness is alright to an extent. Serious life decisions do take time but if you have to bring indecisiveness into your dating life on such a basic level then it can pose problems with the girl you're getting to know because women prefer men who don't rely on them to make decisions on the first date. Either decide what the two of you have in mind together, or plan a good evening with her.
  16. It's often believed that the first date you go on plays the most instrumental role in determining where things will go between you and her. But while that notion is certainly true - the first impression you leave on someone almost always tends to be the last impression - it also undersells the importance of hitting all of the right notes on your second date. After all, it's actually during the second date when you really get to know each other, when you start cultivating your attraction into something more meaningful, and when you start thinking about the possibilities of any potential commitment you may want to undertake. So needless to say, making sure your second date goes super smoothly should be a priority for you, especially if you are visualising a future with her. Fortunately for you, one effective way of ensuring this is by making a few gestures that are guaranteed to impress her. And so on the note, here are four simple gestures you could make that will not only increase her fondness for you, but will also ensure that you get that coveted third date. 1) Get Her A Nice Gift © idiva While you might believe that this is somewhat of a cliche, it's important to remember that there is a reason why cliches end up being so popular and effective in the first place - they work! And so getting your date a nice gift, something that she would preferably like, is advisable. Just make sure you don't get her a box of chocolates or a bouquet of flowers - they are neither personal, nor original and make for terrible gifts that won't help you stand out. Pro tip: If you are feeling hard-pressed on finding a good gift for her (as most men tend to be), the iDiva beauty box makes for a great purchase. 2) Take Her To A Place You Know She Loves © Unsplash If you were paying attention to her the last time you two went on a date, then you ideally should have a better idea of the places she likes, what her hobbies her and what cuisines she savours the most. So why not, for your second date, take her out to a place that you know she will absolutely love? Not only does doing so make for an incredibly sweet gesture, but it will also let her know that you were actually listening and paying attention to her. 3) Initiate Conversations About Her Loved Ones © Pexels The whole point of a first date is to act as an ice breaker and to help you get to properly know each other. So when you end up going on a second date with her, you should ideally have enough information about her and her loved ones to actually initiate conversations about them yourself. Not only will doing so indicate your interest in her life, but - yet again - it will also show that you were paying attention to her during your last date. 4) Pick Her Up AND Drop Her Home © Pexels Since this is going to be your second date with her, you should have a clear idea of where she puts up by now. As such, it'll make for a super sweet gesture on your end to not only pick her up for your second date, but also drop her home. Now there is a fine line between being chivalrous and being dominating, so make sure you ASK her if you could pick her up or drop her home, and not just enforce it on her.

  18. Ever since the iPhone XS and XS Max launched, the smartphone is being tested for various features. One of those features that were tested is the dual camera setup on the iPhone XS Max. DxOMark, a digital camera testing lab just classified the iPhone XS Max as one of the best mobile cameras ever tested. What should be pointed out is that the iPhone XS Max was not able to secure the top spot which is being occupied by Huawei's P20 Pro. © Apple The Huawei P20 Pro scored a 110 score which is just a tab bit higher than the iPhone XS Max that scored 105 in the same test. DxO engineers passed their judgement on the iPhone XS Max based on over 1,500 images and at least two hours of video. The test included capturing images in every environment and lighting condition. If you're interested in reading the full report, you can read DxO's analysis here. iPhone XS Max Camera Specifications Dual-camera setup 12Mp main camera with 1/2.55″ sensor (1.4µm pixels) and six-element f/1.8-aperture lens, 26mm equivalent focal length 12Mp secondary 2x tele-camera with 1/3.4″ sensor (1.0µm pixels) and six-element f/2.4-aperture lens, 52mm equivalent focal length Optical image stabilization on both lenses Phase-detection autofocus (PDAF) Quad-LED dual-tone flash 4K video at 30/60 fps, 1080p at up to 240 fps In DxO's test summary, the report had this to say “If we had to pick one aspect of the camera that could be improved, it's zoom performance,” the DxOMark report summary said. “While zoom has been slightly improved compared to last year's iPhone X, the iPhone XS Max zoom images showcase luminance noise and less detail than some high-end rivals, such as the Huawei P20 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.” © DxOMark DxOMark said that the iPhone XS Max had excellent video quality with a wide dynamic range in bright light. It had “spot on” exposure in outdoor images and the Portrait Mode had “very good subject isolation.” The iPhone XS Max performed exceptionally well apart from a few key areas where it could not beat the P20 Pro. Huawei may just use this report to troll Apple as the Chinese company has been doing so ever since the iPhone XS' launch. Recently, Huawei gave out power banks to Apple fans waiting in line for the iPhone XS and it seems like Huawei may just continue the dissing after this report.
  19. One of the biggest names in international cricket, Mahendra Singh Dhoni continues to weave his magic for the Indian cricket team. From his impeccable leadership skills to majestic batting display, Dhoni has aided his side more often than not. He might have drawn flak during the limited-overs series in England, but Dhoni of the old has been in full display in the ongoing Asia Cup. The Jharkhand skipper, in the absence of Virat Kohli, has been seen donning the role of Team India's mentor. And, on 23rd September, he notched up yet another personal feat after becoming the second most capped player for India across all formats. The 37-year-old played his 505th match for the country during the Super Four clash against Pakistan. © Reuters Marking his record outing with some brilliant work behind the stumps, Dhoni pipped great Rahul Dravid who had 504 caps for Team India in international cricket. Dhoni's appearance now places him right behind Sachin Tendulkar who currently leads the elite list with a record 664 international caps for India. Arguably the most experienced player in the 16-member squad at the Asia Cup, Dhoni's know-how of the game has been proving to be an ace in the pack for Team India that has remained unbeaten in the tournament, having decimated arch-rivals Pakistan in two successive clashes. © Reuters The Jharkhand cricketer boasts of an illustrious cricketing career. He has amassed over 10079 runs in ODIs, 4876 runs in Tests and 1487 runs in T20Is. While his batting prowess that once gave India teeth in the death overs might have dropped a notch, Dhoni's presence on the field has undoubtedly been a boon for his side. With India virtually securing their berth for the final, Dhoni's expertise will once again be needed for the sub-continent giants to successfully defend the Asia Cup title this year.
  20. It was back in 2007 when we were first bowled over by the witty Kapil Sharma on the 'Great Indian Laughter Challenge' show, that offered its audience a fresh way of enjoying entertainment on the small screen in the form of a talent hunt, specifically meant for India's comedy stars. © Instagram The show's brush with gold seemed to have opened a treasure of good luck for the man, who went on to bag all the six consecutive titles on 'Comedy Circus', aired between 2010 to 2012. What an innings it had been for this comedy star who never failed to strike a chord with his audience and tickle their funny bones. We loved him all the more because he was one of us and he had finally made it. Kapil rose to fame from being an ordinary Punjabi munda from Amritsar, was a humble yet excessively funny son to his doting parents. © Instagram Cut to 22 June 2013 when India's way of experiencing entertainment changed forever. Kapil Sharma's 'Comedy Nights With Kapil' hit the screens and became an instant hit. This moment onwards there was no looking back for Kapil or his popular show which was a fresh mix of sketch comedy and celebrity talk show, which then became India's own take on American late-night shows. © Instagram We had finally found someone whose jokes resonated with our personal experiences and we could now hear someone share our private jokes from a stage, but they sounded a lot more hilarious coming from him. From young kids to our grannies and dads, there were elements in the show that catered to all our needs across all age groups and we loved everything about it! The cast, the sets, the plots and obviously the ROFL inducing jokes and interviews, we simply couldn't get enough of Kapil and his team's antics. © Instagram The show did all the right things for Kapil and then came the time when the show's contract with Sony came to an end. This time Kapil found a welcome abode on Colors TV which saw the birth of 'The Kapil Sharma Show'. This venture brought together some of the most famous names of the film fraternity together on a platform, became hugely popular and allowed us to watch our favourite celebrities in a different light. © Instagram But like they say, all good things must come to end, and so was to be the fate of Kapil's golden touch which gradually began to lose its gilded effect. 2017 came bearing a number of lows for Kapil which only proved that excessive pride can bring about your fall. From allegations of misbehaviour to throwing tantrums on the sets and alcohol dependence, Kapil's popularity was marred beyond repair. © Instagram While a lot has been said and done about those mishaps already, we list down the major missteps Kapil Sharma has to his credit that were pivotal to his fall from grace: The Sunil Grover Debacle The biggest blow to Kapil's raging glory was his fallout with friend and fellow co-star Sunil Grover, which took an ugly turn when things went public on Twitter with both Kapil and Sunil sharing their side of the story. That didn't go down well with Kapil who went on a rant about it on Twitter. Paji I called u more then 100 times n came to ur house to meet u twice .. every time u were out for some show n all .. pls don't spread rumors that I didn't call u. — KAPIL (@KapilSharmaK9) March 17, 2018 The thing is u r smarter then me. u know when n how to play .. n I am a dumb emotional. — KAPIL (@KapilSharmaK9) March 18, 2018 Next came the mid-air altercation with his colleagues on 'The Kapil Sharma Show' leading to a joint walkout which killed the show and brought a lot of negative publicity. Fans Begin Losing Their Faith Thanks To His Public Fights The next blow was a public fight that ensued when Kapil charged his ex-girlfriend Preeti Simoes and her sister of trying to extort money from him after having exited the show with the others. A defamation suit ensued and yet again all was witness by the fans. Here is what the sisters had to say: A Message for u from the heart @KapilSharmaK9 #kapilsharma pic.twitter.com/7Rg0l5EgrQ — Neetisimoes (@neetisimoes) April 10, 2018 The Final Nail In The Coffin The final hit came when Kapil got into an ugly virtual fight with a Spotboye journalist Vicky Lalwani over a story on Kapil, that didn't go down well with the king of comedy and he yet again went public on Twitter to vent: Maine jo b likha tha apne dil se likha tha.. it was my team who deleted my tweets .. But main is kutte bikaayu reporter se darne wala nahi hu.. he can write anything for anybody just for few bucks. Shameless — KAPIL (@KapilSharmaK9) April 7, 2018 Apparently he was upset about some stories against him. I was only doing my work. He called me, used abusive language & also said offensive things about my daughter. He handled his success very well but couldn't handle his drop: V Lalwani, journalist on his spat with Kapil Sharma pic.twitter.com/y8XXmtfpN3 — ANI (@ANI) April 6, 2018 These incidents are what we last remember of him from last year and a half, but new reports now suggest that Kapil is working hard to salvage his career and rebuild his life and is all set to make a comeback with a new comedy show around Diwali this year. We wish him all the luck in this new endeavour and hope to see a brand new Kapil Sharma who has faced his challenges and come out fighting.
  21. Considering some of the biggest and most successful movies in Bollywood are based on those, we can say one thing for sure – you can almost never go wrong with a biopic of an inspiring person. Some of the biggest actors in the film industry have tried their best in bringing someone else's life story on the big screen and now Shahid Kapoor is also all set to join the league of Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra among others and portray the boxing legend Dingko Singh in a biopic. Ngangom Dingko Singh, or better known as just Dingko Singh is a former boxing champ and Asian Games gold medallist from Manipur. He was also the first and only Asian gold medallist boxer from India in the Bantamweight category. Moreover, for all of his achievements for the country, he was also awarded the prestigious Padma Shri in 2013. Dingko has become an inspiration for so many boxers and people aspiring to excel at the sport and he's so passionate about the sport, he went on to become a coach for young boxers. Well, looks like it was about time he got his very own well-deserved biopic. © Twitter This seems like such an important and ambitious project, Shahid Kapoor definitely has his work cut out for him. Talking about the movie, the actor said, “The thing that I loved about this story is that he is one of those superstars who we don't know much about. If a film like Dangal (2016) wasn't made, we wouldn't know as much about the Phogat sisters. Dingko is a cancer survivor, and he went through 13 rounds of chemotherapy. He has even gone on to say that his biggest win was surviving cancer and not the gold medal he won at the age of 19 at the 1998 Asian Games in Bangkok.” Shahid already looks very excited for his next big film and has nothing but respect for the inspiring story of a hero not a lot of people know about. He went on, “In 2017, Gautam Gambhir became aware of his situation and sent money for his treatment. Soon, people found out who he was, and 13 doctors came forward to help him. He is a sports star who survived cancer. At some point in his past, he had almost become a Naxalite. His life story is unbelievably crazy; it is very human and extremely inspiring. Such amazing stories of heroes need to be told.” The Dingko Singh biopic is all set to come out next year and is expected to release in September 2019. No offence to Shahid Kapoor, but the only question I have about this casting is why couldn't they find a north-eastern actor to portray a north-eastern person? There needs to be representation for everyone but looks like they're missing the mark again, just like Bollywood did with Mary Kom when Priyanka Chopra was cast to play her. © Twitter Well, I'm not surprised but just disappointed. Let's just wait till Bollywood will finally start recognizing talented people from the entire country, don't know when that will happen though. Recently, the internet came together to stop Scarlett Johansson from portraying a transgender person in movie, and she ultimately walked out of the project. The change has started happening in Hollywood, so hopefully Bollywood will also follow soon.
  22. Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has surpassed American giant Apple to become the world's second-largest smartphone seller behind the Korean behemoth Samsung in the second quarter. According to figures released by International Data Corporation, Samsung retained the top spot after shipping 71.5 million devices, Huawei took the second position by shipping 54.2 million devices, followed by Apple shipping 41.3 million iPhones. © IDC Huawei is the largest smartphone maker in China and has been rapidly expanding to other markets. In India, the company has been selling devices via Huawei branding as well as a new sub-brand, Honor. In 2018 itself, the company has launched a new device every couple of months and has been giving tough competition to Xiaomi, OPPO, and Vivo. Honor's share of overall Huawei smartphone shipments increased to 36 percent this quarter. Over 4 million Honor-branded smartphones were shipped outside China. © Bhallanator / Twitter In the last few years, Huawei has been slowly launching its flagship products in Europe as well. In terms of sales, the phones have been doing much better than expected and the company's refreshed focus on innovative phones like the P20 Pro has paid off to establish a trustable brand image. “The continued growth of Huawei is impressive, to say the least, as is its ability to move into markets where, until recently, the brand was largely unknown,” said Ryan Reith, programme vice president of IDC's Worldwide Mobile Device Tracker. © BCCL While Apple will be able to bounce back a little in the coming quarter thanks to the launch of new iPhones, Huawei has managed to establish itself as a premium player with a long-term outlook. Many reviewers have rated the P20 Pro higher than Samsung's S9, and the tri-camera setup on the rear is one of its kind. Apple, Huawei, and Samsung are the main contenders when it comes to competition for high-end smartphones priced at US$ 700 or more. © Nikkei Asian Review Huawei has been barred from selling devices in the U.S.A after concerns over Chinese government extracting user data via the smartphone maker. While Huawei has strongly denied any wrongdoing and continues to maintain that no user data is fetched back to China, the company has been forcefully dragged into the ongoing American - Chinese trade war.

  23. The first impression you make is almost always the last (and most impactful) impression you leave on someone. The same holds true for dates as well, where your chances of getting a second date are directly (and unequivocally) dependent on the impression you leave during that first date. Adhering to a few tried and tested (if it ain't broke, don't fix it!) tips for dating ends up being pretty helpful. So with that in mind, here are five tips you should think about following if you want to score a second date (provided you're not a creep). 1) Wear A Strong Fragrance © Pexels More often than not, wearing a strong and captivating fragrance can make all the difference in making sure that your date remembers you (and for all the right reasons!). As such, getting your hands on some of the best perfumes for men will significantly increase your chances. When buying a perfume, keep in mind the brand (Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss and Burberry are good options) and the base note (it's the note that lasts the longest) of the cologne in order to make an informed choice. 2) Make Sure Your Grooming Game Is Up To The Mark © Instagram No woman in her right mind will want to go out on a second date with a man who's unkempt beard makes him look like a hobo or vagabond. Sorry guys, it's not No Shave November and there is no excuse for you to be looking like Ranveer Singh's low rent cousin. As such, investing in the right shaving essentials (the best trimmers), the best shaving creams and the best moisturisers) becomes mandatory. Additionally, you should also not forget about grooming your hair by using the right shampoos, conditioners and hair oils. 3) Harbour Your Own Sense Of Style © Instagram Harbouring your own sense of style will always go a long way in ensuring you create a positive impression on your date. So as long as it's not too funky (ROMPERS FOR MEN ARE NOT OKAY!), and is something that doesn't make you compromise on comfort, you should be good to go. Pro tip: Printed t-shirts, solid chinos, leather jackets and smart-casual blazers never go out of style. 4) Cultivate A Sense Of Humour © Pexels Who doesn't like someone who can make them laugh? Cultivating a good sense of humour will go a long way in ensuring that you leave a positive and lasting impression on your date. While you don't have to be a stand-up comic, it's also important to not be so bland or monotonous that she starts checking her watch every two minutes. 5) Offer To Pick The Tab, But Respect Her Choice © Pexels Perhaps one of the most debatable aspects of any date has to do with who gets to pick up the tab at the end of it. Now when you go on a first date, you should offer to pick up the tab (being a little chivalrous has never hurt anyone). However, if she wants to pick the tab instead or just split it between you two, DO NOT resist or make it a bigger issue than it deserves to be.
