  1. Despite the decriminalisation of Article 377, LGBTQIA+ individuals struggle every single day to 'be themselves' out in the open and own their sexuality; unfortunately, just like the society struggles to let go of its judgements and biases. In spite of the law being on their side, at least partially now, they still have to face a lot of stigma, just because the society assumes every individual is heterosexual. To counter this, The Times Of India has launched a campaign called 'Times Out & Proud', through which the paper will offer the LGBTQIA+ community free space in its classifieds for three months. © TOI The campaign started on the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, and it aims at making daily life easier for the LGBTQIA+ community. The campaign is based on the rightful belief that sexual orientation and gender identities should not decide the stature of a person in society. © TOI Since newspaper is one of the most basic and primary public spaces which is shared by every section of the society equally, the Times Of India decided that it's time to aggressively take progressive steps towards inclusion. As part of the campaign, the Times of India is offering the LGBTQIA+ community a free space in the classifieds section for three months. This is a safe space for the members of the LGBTQIA+ community to not just look for a house, a job or a partner, but a medium through which they can share their stories publicly. The classifieds are simply a platform that the campaign provides to the LGBTQIA+ community to voice their stories. © TOI The campaign has been launched through a film featuring the lives and struggles of different people from the LGBTQIA+ community. One can visit the campaign page to watch the film and join the campaign as well. Hopefully, this step will prove to be a path-changer, when it comes to creating awareness and bringing in non-judgemental attitudes. © TOI If you are a member of the LGBTQIA+ community or want to support a LGBTQIA+ friend or relative, share your stories in 50 words to outandproud@timesgroup.com, and it will be printed free of cost for the first three months. To join the movement and to share your thoughts and views, use the hashtag #TimesOutAndProud Watch the campaign video here:
  2. Millennials can attest to the fact that the good ol' idiot box has played a vital role in developing and exposing us to the world. Well, the times have changed now, and Samsung thinks it's time the TVs around us change too. The company has made a vertical TV in an effort to woo social media-addicted millennials. That's right. It's a real thing and it's called the Sero. © Samsung Sero is Samsung's new 43-inch vertical TV that ships with Bixby assistant built-in. According to Samsung, it made this vertical TV to appeal to younger buyers who want to watch vertical videos. Don't worry though. Sero is not just a vertical TV. It's possible to flip the screen and watch horizontal content too. The TV comes with a built-in screen mirroring functionality, so you can also beam videos from, say, your phone or tablet to the TV. There's also a 60-watt speaker for music streaming. © Samsung Sero, in case you're wondering, will be available in South Korea by the end of May, and it will carry a price tag of about $1,600. Should you buy it? Well, if you're into TikTok, Instagram, Snapchat and other vertical videos on YouTube, then by all means yes. There's no info about its availability outside Korea, but it'll be interesting to see how it's received in other markets.
  3. You can get creative ideas from almost anywhere, and there's nothing wrong in taking inspiration from them. However, things go wrong when you take too much inspiration and end up low-key copying it. We are sure, Bollywood knows this feeling just too well. However, gone are the days of getting inspired by the West. Our directors these days look up to regional movies, particularly South Korean movies to take inspiration from and the most recent example is Salman Khan's upcoming movie 'Bharat'. For those who didn't know, 'Bharat' is an official remake of a South Korean film 'An Ode To My Father'. While some movies are called official remakes, others are simply lifted from the original one. Here are 10 Bollywood movies which we didn't know were 'inspired' from some of the biggest South Korean movies: 1. Rocky Handsome - The Man From Nowhere Starring John Abraham in the lead, 'Rocky Handsome' is the official remake of Lee Jeong-Beom's film 'The Man From Nowhere'. The story is about a mysterious man and a young girl he makes friends with. When the girl is kidnapped and her mother is killed, the man goes to extreme lengths to save the girl. 2. Ek Villain - I Saw The Devil This Mohit Suri directorial starring Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor was loved by many for its fresh storyline and Riteish Deshmukh's brilliant performance as a villain. What most people don't know is that 'Ek Villain' is actually copied from a popular South Korean film 'I Saw The Devil'. However, the Bollywood version is not as gory or violent as the Korean one starring Choi Min Shik, which is till date considered to be one of the best films ever made. 3. Zinda - Oldboy 'Oldboy' is a neo-noir action thriller about a man, who sets out to find out why he was kidnapped and kept inside a cell for 15 years, unravelling some disturbing secrets in his journey. While everyone loves the South Korean film (one of the finest movies ever made), hardly knows about 'Zinda' except for the people who acted in the movie. 'Zinda' starred Sanjay Dutt and John Abraham. 4. Jazbaa - Seven Days Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's comeback movie 'Jazbaa' might have failed to leave a mark at the box-office, but it was appreciated by the critics, especially Aishwarya's power-packed performance. 'Jazbaa' was copied from the South Korean movie, 'Seven Days' and follows the journey of a female lawyer, who has to now win an unwinnable case in order to save her kidnapped daughter. 5. Murder 2 - The Chaser Starring Emraan Hashmi, Jacqueline Fernandez and Prashant Narayanan, 'Murder 2' is a copy of another super hit South Korean film 'The Chaser'. Emraan Hashmi stars as an ex-police officer tasked with finding some missing *** workers. When a young woman is sent by him to entice the kidnapper, Hashmi sets out to find her. 6. Awarapan - A Bittersweet Life A hitman is asked to keep an eye on his boss' mistress. However, when he learns that she is being exploited, he decides to rescue her from the clutches of his boss. While actor Lee Byung Hyun flawlessly portrayed the conflict going on inside the character in the South Korean version, Emraan Hashmi failed to recreate the same magic or should we say turmoil in the Bollywood one. 7. Te3n - Montage Starring Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vidya Balan, this RibhuDasgupta directorial is a remake of the 2013 South Korean film 'Montage'. The movie features Amitabh as John Biswas, a 70-year-old man, who seeks help from a priest and a police officer to find the people who kidnapped and killed his granddaughter. 8. Do Lafzon Ki Kahani - Always Starring two of my favourite actors, So Ji-sub and Han Hyo-joo, 'Always' is a classic romantic South Korean film about a former boxer and a high-spirited telemarketer who is blind. Romance starts brewing between the two slowly, which changes their life forever. A Hindi version was made starring Randeep Hooda and Kajal Agarwal. If you are hearing the Bollywood movie's name for the first time, then you will get my point. 9. Rock On - A Happy Life Starring Farhan Akhtar, Purab Kohli and Arjun Rampal, 'Rock On' is a story of four friends who fail to make it big in the music industry as their band falls apart due to differences. Years later, they come together to rebuild the dream and embark on a journey they left years ago. This is probably the only movie on this list that was unanimously loved by both the audience and the critics. 'Rock On' is said to be based on the South Korean movie 'A Happy Life'. 10. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo - Masquerade Everyone knows that 'Bharat' is an official Hindi remake of a popular South Korean film. But, not many know that this is not the only film that took inspiration from South Korea. 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' is another chartbuster movie that was copied from 'Masquerade', a very famous South Korean film.

  15. There exist two very significant things that our generation swears by, something that is enough to propel us to chuck the comfort of our monthly paychecks in a jiffy. Those two golden factors are the possibility of living our most earnest dreams, and the promise of succeeding in that endeavour - both of which we hold very dear. But as soon as we look around, it becomes pretty clear that success (really) comes to those who will and dare, and merely wishing for it will not lead us closer to fulfilling it. The path of pursuing those dreams will be a struggle on most days - marked by days that are dreary, with an occasional glimpse of vitality. But if things ever seem to bear down too hard upon you, and you wish to rise above it all, read through the stories of these 5 men, who charged through their share of struggles, to live the dream they dreamt for themselves. 1. Dr. Devi Prasad Shetty © Youtube Better known as the man who pioneered inexpensive cardiac surgeries in India, Dr. Shetty was born in Karnataka. The second-youngest of nine siblings, he had his heart set on becoming a heart surgeon. Throughout the course of his career, Dr. Shetty performed numerous feats that brought him name and fame. That includes India's first neonatal cardiac surgery on a nine-day-old baby and the first video-assisted open heart surgery! It is, however, his personal project of opening a chain of hospitals, now known as Narayana Hruduyayala, that placed him on the national pedestal. His aim was to provide life-saving cardiac surgeries at an affordable price to millions of Indians. 2. Deep Kalra © BCCL Apart from being the founder of one of India's most loved online travel company, Deep Kalra also boasts of great educational merits. He is a St. Stephens graduate from the University of Delhi, and an IIM-A alumni. Life turned into a perfect dream when he landed a well-paying job at a bank, right out of college. However, within just a few years of trying his hands at many other business options, he decided to go on a sabbatical so he could figure out his real ambition in life. After having saved a fair amount on his travel booking to Thailand, Kalra decided to dive into the e-commerce space. Having gotten there in 2000, at the beginning of the internet boom, the enterprise now posts annual revenues of over 152 million dollars. 3. Siddhartha Lal © BCCL Credited with the turnaround and revival of the "Royal Enfield Bullet" motorcycle in the country, Siddhartha is the epitome of how conviction is the greatest tool one needs in order to succeed in life. Enfield's sales tremendously dipped in 2000, with the brand resting on the brink of pulling the shutters. However, Siddhartha stepped in time and decided to revive the lost glory of the motorcycle. He closed 14 other businesses to focus entirely on the automobile sector, and over the next few years, Royal Enfield was reinstated to its former glory. Not only did the sales improve, but the brand itself became aspirational. From selling just 25,000 bikes in the year 2005, the Royal Enfield sold 67,000 units in November of 2017. 4. Karsanbhai Patel © Quora Mr. Patel is the reason why Nirma is the pasand of 'Hema, Jaya, Rekha aur Sushma'. The founder of the Nirma empire, Karsanbhai Patel started his journey by making detergent in his own backyard and selling it door-to-door on his bicycle after his regular government job in Ahmedabad. The affordably priced Nirma, named after his late daughter, was introduced in 1969. The low price point and a quality product made Nirma an instant hit amongst middle and lower-middle-class families in the country. The rest is history. 5. CP Krishnan Nair © BCCL Mr. Nair is the founder of India's leading luxury hotel chain Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts. Born into a large family with eight children, and limited means in Kerala, luck shone upon the man when he received a lifetime scholarship from the ruler of Chirakkal. The future would see him join the Indian army, rising to the rank of a captain. In 1951, he set up the All India Handloom Board to promote Indian yarn on foreign land and this exposure to international hotels led him to open the first Leela hotel, named after his wife, in 1987 in Mumbai. In 2016, it clocked revenues of Rs 661 crore! Inspiration shall seek you out if you're looking in the right places. These people followed their hearts and fulfilled the dreams they lost their sleepover. How's that for your dose of daily motivation?

  18. Social media is where the current generation of tech-savvy and information-hungry junkies live. We breathe in the latest updates in the form of push notifications and tend to our serious cases of FOMO with the help of social networking websites. Not just that, the social media has also helped us in sorting out our need for instant gratification, by the means of bringing our every need within the reach of our palm. Whether it is food or entertainment we seek, it's all available at the click of a button. With as many as 3.196 billion global social media users, and almost 42% penetration in 2018, as per a 'We Are Social' special report, this power has also helped to change the lives of many commoners like ourselves. These people have explored the potential of social media to the fullest and emerged as the greatest social media celebs our generation has ever seen. For some, life has changed overnight, while for others it took a little longer. But they are here now, and they are causing quite a stir online. Here are the success stories of 5 young social media celebs of recent times. 1. Ashish Chanchlani © Instagram YouTuber and Viner, Ashish needs no introduction. It was a short video by David Lopez that changed the life of this engineering graduate. He initially started out as a motivational speaker of sorts, but it was his comic vines that earned him crazy popularity. With close to 8 million subscribers on his YouTube channel, his videos are hilarious with a lot of cuss words that make up his earnest expressions on the camera. He hails Akshay Kumar as his role model and is said to have started his YouTube channel as a means to accomplish his desire to act. Youngsters across the country love his work, and his online presence keeps on growing bigger and bigger. 2. Srishti Dixit © Instagram It was probably her take on the iconic character of Poo from K3G, played by Kareena Kapoor, that changed the Kanpur girl's life forever. In the video shared by BuzzFeed India, not only do we come across Srishti's acting skills, but also come to love her comic timing. And just like that, Srishti became internet's new celeb overnight. Her wit, brutal honesty and authenticity make her a relatable personality that her audience can instantly connect to. What's more, she has gone on to appear on various shows and shared the stage with prominent personalities like Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor. More recently, she also graced the pages of Verve magazine with Cyrus Broacha, his dog and her cat Patches. 3. Amit Bhadana © Instagram With over 11 million subscribers, Bhadana is one of India's most popular YouTubers, perhaps second to only Bhuvan Bam. The 24-year-old Gurjar boy from Delhi is popular for his honest and uber hilarious takes on relationships and intricacies of people's personality. With a bachelor's degree in Law, Amit had a hard time convincing his parents that YouTube is what he wanted to do full time. What's more, his parents were clueless about his endeavours when he started out. In an interview with HT, he said that it was his online popularity that finally gave him away. An absolute hit with young Indians, people cannot seem to get enough of his funny bones. 4. Tushar Lall © Instagram The mastermind behind one of the greatest musical revolutions to have gripped India in recent years, Lall is the man behind 'The Indian Jam Project'. The idea was to bring Indian classical musicians onto one platform and recreate popular movie and TV scores. A Music Production student from Dubspot, New York, Lall always wanted to bring together Indian classical music into the contemporary music scene. When BuzzFeed and MTV Indies picked up his first raw take on the musical fusion with 'Game of Thrones' opening theme song cover, he became an internet sensation overnight. The Indian Jam Project's work has caught the attention of prominent personalities such as Emmy award-winning composer Michael Price, actor and novelist Mark Gatiss, and Hollywood film score composer Clint Mansell, among others. Some of his covers of cult scores, such as the theme music of 'Harry Potter' and 'Star Wars' have gotten them a lot of eyeballs (and ears). 5. Kenneth 'Kenny' Sebastian © Instagram One of India's most beloved comic stars, Kenny's USP lies in his ability to satirise the trivialities of the Indian middle class, thrive on the idiosyncrasies of the underdog and bring out the relatable side of the most mundane aspects of human existence. His rendezvous with stand-up comedy happened by chance. It was during his days in college that he decided to participate in a stand-up competition being held by IIT-Mumbai during its Mood Indigo Festival. Guess what? Not only did he win the competition and the cash money, but also got his first break to perform at the prestigious 'The Comedy Store'. With close to 2 million subscribers on YouTube and a huge fan following outside of the virtual space. He's a super talented musician besides being a filmmaker and stand-up comedian. The guy holds a bachelor's degree in Visual Arts and is a trained painter too. How talented! Inspiring people, aren't they?
  19. Foreign Office building in Islamabad, Pakistan. Photo: Geo News file ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office on Thursday said that Pakistan does not agree with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson?s recent statement about Pakistan. In a town hall meeting with the employees of the US State Department, Tillerson had said that he does not enjoy the task of dealing with countries like Pakistan and North Korea. "We do not agree with the comments and perception of Secretary Tillerson," Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal tweeted. He further said that Pakistan has undertaken largescale operations against terrorists and their safe havens across the length and breadth of the country with notable success. "These operations are being carried out in our own national interest and Pakistan is determined to rid its soil of the scourge of terrorism and extremism." Do not enjoy dealing with Pakistan: US Secretary of State Tillerson?s statement was made during a town hall meeting held with employees of the US State Department According to the US Secretary of State, relations with Pakistan which he termed an important and valued partner had drifted and had to be brought back to one of common interest. Tillerson visited Pakistan in October and held meetings with the country?s top political and military leadership. "Pakistan is important regionally to our joint goals of providing peace and security to the region and providing an opportunity for greater economic relationship," Tillerson was quoted as saying during his meeting with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. The US Embassy, in a statement released, said the secretary of state reiterated President Trump?s message that Pakistan must increase its efforts to ?eradicate militants and terrorists operating within the country?. ?The Secretary outlined the United States? new South Asia Strategy and the vital role that Pakistan can play in working with the United States and others to facilitate a peace process in Afghanistan that can bring stability and security to the region,? said the statement from the US embassy. During the meeting, Tillerson also expressed appreciation for Pakistan?s sacrifices in the fight against terrorism. ?The Secretary also expressed his gratitude to the Government of Pakistan and the Pakistani Army for their cooperation in securing the release of the Boyle-Coleman family from captivity,? added the statement.
