  1. The long weekend is here and in case you're not doing anything, just being a couch potato, nursing bad health or loaded with work which barred you from leaving town, then my guess is that like most of us, binge-watching will be the only plan you'll have. Here are 5 interesting suggestions for you for this weekend: 1. Hanna- This drama series follows a 15-year-old girl, Hanna who is being hunted down by a CIA agent. This dark show could be a good binge watch for you! 2. The OA 2- Brit Marling is back with her brilliance. If you followed Prairie and her friends travelling across dimensions of time in the 1st season and were left shook with what followed, this one is more layered and complicated like something you didn't imagine. 3. McMafia- Nawaz fans already devoured it last year but in case you haven't, this is a good show to binge watch. The BBC drama has Nawaz playing a Mumbai importer, Dilly Mahmood. The series revolves around Alex Goldman who is brought up by Russian exiles. Makes for a good binge watch. 4. Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé- You don't need any more reasons to watch the madness and the sheer dedication that goes behind the planning of a Beyoncé concert. This is basically a testament of her persona, just watch it already. 5. Our Planet- This series explores the wonders of the world in eight parts. This insane project was in the works for over 4 years and was shot in over 50 countries. Just prepare to be mesmerised.
  2. Following a remarkable comeback to the tournament last season, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have continued their fine run in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The MS Dhoni-led brigade have won seven out of the eight games they've played so far to go four points clear at the top in the points table. While the Chennai outfit has derived favourable results owing to a collective team effort, Dhoni's success as the one true leader continues to capture the imagination of cricket fans. Arguably one of the most admired and respected cricketers in the world, Dhoni seems to have passed on his leadership skills to daughter Ziva. For a four-year-old, Ziva has already tasted stardom owing to her cute videos that continue to throng social media. But, more recently, her understanding of the fast-paced world around her has left everyone in awe. When you receive your award once again and get to learn how to wear the cap yellovingly! #WhistlePodu #Yellove #KKRvCSK ð¦ð @ImranTahirSA @DJBravo47 pic.twitter.com/nquXsFTiR8 — Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) April 14, 2019 In her latest video, Ziva was seen imparting lessons to none other than Chennai's star all-rounder Dwayne Bravo on the correct way to wear a CSK cap. The youngster was seen correcting Bravo after he was seen wearing the CSK cap backwards - something that had earlier instigated Sunil Gavaskar to slam the likes of Fakhar Zaman and Dinesh Karthik for disrespecting the national cap. After recording their first win at the Eden Gardens since 2013, Dhoni-led Chennai will be eager to continue their fine form when they visit the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium to take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on 17th April.
  3. 'Game Of Thrones' has a cult following for a lot of reasons. One of which is the fact that the show has stellar costumes that look authentic to the timeline they shoot in. However, wearing such context-heavy costumes comes at a heavy price. Sometimes, the fabric or the design was so uncomfortable that the actors could do nothing but sit through long and tiresome shooting hours. Maisie Williams, in a recent interview with a leading publication revealed that the prep for 'Game Of Thrones', aside from the strenuous shooting in extremely cold locations, also had to deal with uncomfortable straps and bellies. For Maisie Williams, as Arya Stark in the initial few seasons, had to wear a strap across her chest to hide her breasts. At 15, while normal teenage girls had crushes and an awkward teenage life, Maisie Williams had to wear a strap and hide her breasts for long shoot hours as her character Arya, was pretending to be a boy in the series. And after the strap stopped working, Maisie Williams had to wear a "chubby belly" to "even out the playing field" so no one( other characters) would suspect her a girl on the show. © HBO It was only in the sixth season that the costume designers decided to let Arya grow on the show so they gave a bra to Maisie Williams as a part of the costume. This made the costume in general so much more comfortable for Maisie Williams.
  4. Jim Sarbh is the king of quirk, and no, we're not referring only to his choice of roles. When it comes to matters of style and fashion, the man is as non-mainstream as his roles are. Right from rocking gender-fluid ensembles to wearing clothes that manage to steal the collective thunder of the entire Bollywood. His latest avatar, however, is something we have never seen before. Take a look. © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal Jim is legit looking like an edgy Indian king, wearing statement sherwanis by Shantanu & Nikhil. The impeccably stitched pieces spell elegance and royalty like nothing else, and we're obsessed with the innovative layering game. © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal What stands out is the subtlety of the ensembles, in terms of the colour palette. The fact that they can look super conspicuous in spite of that, in terms of sheer design elements, is noteworthy. © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal Modern Indian grooms can definitely take a leaf out of Jim's book when it comes to standing apart, as opposed to opting for the same old tried and tested outfits. The draping in some of the outfits are so unusual, that they are effortlessly ramp-ready. © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal All we can say is, Jim's style game surely does look like it was 'made in heaven'.

  5. This year's Indian Premier League (IPL) has not been short of breathtaking moments. It's still early days in the tournament but we are already witnessing a totally different side of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) allrounder, Andre Russell. Coming in at crucial points and taking the game away has been a trademark for the Carribean giant. He has played three matches till now and in each game has crossed the mark of 40 runs with a strike rate over 200. View this post on Instagram Describe this knock in 1 emoji ð . . . #KKRHaiTaiyaar #DCvKKR #VIVOIPL #Cricket #IPL #IndianPremierLeague #Delhi #Sports #KorboLorboJeetbo #IPL2019 #KKR #KolkataKnightRiders #AndreRussell @ar12russell A post shared by Kolkata Knight Riders (@kkriders) on Mar 30, 2019 at 9:27am PDT In the match against Delhi Capitals (DC) on Saturday, Russell, once again saved his team from falling in the trap of the Delhi bowlers. Coming in at 61 for 5, he found a suitable partner in skipper Dinesh Karthik to take the team to a par total of 185 in their share of 20 overs, out of which, he scored 62 in mere 28 balls with six sixes and four fours. Along with his exploits with the bat, the West Indian made sure that he contributed with the ball also (1 wicket). Despite all the hard-work though, KKR ended up on the losing side as they fell short in the super over by three runs. Looking forward to continuing his blistering performances for KKR, Russell sits on the third spot in the race of the orange cap, following David Warner and Johnny Bairstow of Sunrisers Hyderabad.
  6. Fast charging has grown to become one of the most popular smartphone features lately. OnePlus started off the whole fast-charging fad with its 'Dash Charge' (now called Warp Charge) technology. And now, Huawei has 40W SuperCharge and Oppo has 50W SuperVOOC. Now, it looks like Xiaomi is also looking to enter the race with an incredible 100W fast charging technology. Yesterday, the company gave us our first glimpse of its new charging tech dubbed “Super Charge Turbo”. There's still a lot that we don't know about this new charging tech, but Xiaomi's co-founder and President Lin Bin has shared a video of its new technology in action. And guess what? It's looks absolutely insane! Just check this out - As you can see in the video, Xiaomi's new technology can charge a 4,000 mAh battery from 0-percent to 50-percent in just 7 minutes. If you think that's insane, then wait till you hear that leaving the phone on charge for an extra 10 minutes can bring the charge up to 100-percent. So essentially, you can fully charge a smartphone with 4,000 mAh battery in just 17-minutes. In comparison, Oppo's 50W SuperVOOC charging technology is capable of charging a smaller 3,700 mAh battery only up to 65-percent in 17 minutes. Of course, it's still miles ahead of a lot of smartphones on the market, but Xiaomi's new tech is on an other level. © YouTube Well, that's all for now. A certain Xiaomi smartphone that's launching as early as tomorrow is said to support this incredibly fast charging tech, so we hope to learn more about it very soon.
  7. Chennai Super Kings is literally the 'king' of this league as they have won three titles out of the ten seasons they have played. Despite being off the tournament for two years, CSK made an epic comeback by winning the last season with some prolific performances. Keeping their core team intact, CSK has been one of the most lethal sides in the Indian Premier League. A fact to back our statement is that CSK has made to the playoffs in all the ten seasons they have played. The MS Dhoni-led side has been cool as ever and is renowned for making some dramatic comeback with players like Bravo and Watson who can snatch the game away from you anytime they want. Despite the star-studded squad CSK have, here are our top five key players who can help them lift the title for record 4th time: 1. MS Dhoni © Instagram The most beloved player of the CSK squad, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, topping our list would come as no surprise because we all know the importance this man holds in the team. He is the most calm and clever captain you'll find on the cricket ground. His insane tactics and game-changing abilities make him the most threatening player in the squad. Equipped with his helicopter shot, MSD has every knowledge of when to strike and when to become an anchor for the team. Having the core team he requires, Captain Cool will surely give it all to win his fourth title. 2. Suresh Raina © Instagram Making a comeback in the big scene, Suresh Raina is definitely a player to look out for in this year's IPL. The leading run scorer in the IPL, Raina had a pretty decent season last year where he scored 445 runs (including four 50+ scores) in 15 innings with a strike rate of 132.44 Since then, he has been out of international cricket, firstly because of injury and later because of poor form. But he still is one of the most dangerous batsmen if he starts firing. Looking forward to rebooting his career with the IPL glory, Raina will do anything asked for to prove his worth. 3. Shane Watson © BCCI The most reliable overseas player in the CSK side would be none other than Shane Watson. Brilliant with the bat and handy with the ball, Watson ticks two crucial boxes in the team's side. Scoring massive 555 runs in 15 innings, the Aussie star has proved his worth time and again. Apart from his batting prowess, Watto will also provide an extra bowling option to Chennai in crunch situations. Adding to it, his precision with the medium bowling not only gives them an extra option but will also provide them helps them to cover the quota of four overs but also to get a crucial breakthrough at times. With that, he brings experience to the side which is certainly a boost for the younger players' confidence. 4. Imran Tahir © Instagram Another star performer of the CSK side is their South African leggie, Imran Tahir. Getting to bowl all the four overs in every match, Tahir plays an important role in CSK's win counts. One of the most experienced bowlers in the side, Tahir surely instils a whole lot of confidence in the team, both on and off the field. Though he got to play just six matches last season, we hope we get to see him in action more often so that he can prove his metal to the world. 5. Ambati Rayudu © Instagram The top run scorer in IPL 2018 journey for CSK, Ambati Rayudu is all set to own the yellow jersey once again. Having a mammoth total of 602 runs (comprising of a century) in 16 innings, Rayudu has already proven why he should be retained. Another important task for Rayudu would be to cement his place in the World Cup squad by performing well in the season. Having a robust last season, a whole lot will be dependent on him as the season passes through.

    Chennai Super Kings

    One of the most popular and celebrated T20 franchises across the globe, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) needs no introduction in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The yellow brigade began their journey with a runners-up finish in the inaugural edition of the tournament. The next edition saw them reaching the Play-offs, but a title triumph was still nowhere in sight. Their hunt for the elusive IPL title finally came to an end in 2010 when they defeated Mumbai Indians (MI) by 22 runs at the DY Patil stadium. The following year saw MS Dhoni-led brigade doubling their IPL title count as they broke the hearts of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) fans after securing a 58-run win in the summit clash. With two titles in as many years, Chennai looked unstoppable when they reached the IPL final in 2012. But, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) denied Chennai a hat-trick of IPL titles after defeating them by five-wickets at the MA Chidambaram stadium. The 2013 & 2015 editions saw Chennai reaching the final, but, on both occasions, a triumphant Mumbai extended their wait for a third title. If heartbreaks in the finals weren't enough, Chennai reached an all-time low after getting suspended for two years in lieu of the spot-fixing scandal. But, for a team that saw their arch-rivals, Mumbai extend their IPL title triumphs to three in 2017, Chennai made a roaring comeback last season, getting the better of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Wankhede stadium. © BCCL In a bid to successfully defend their title this season, Chennai shelled out Rs 5.2 crore at the 2019 IPL Auctions. With their core already players retained, Chennai was probably the least active franchise at the auctions, securing the services of just two cricketers - Mohit Sharma (Rs 5 cr) and Ruturaj Gaikwad (Rs 20 lakh). In Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson and Suresh Raina, Chennai undoubtedly have one of the most reliable top-orders in the competition. Watson had the opposition bowlers running for cover last season, slamming 555 runs at an average of 39.64. It was the flying starts given by their openers that allowed Chennai to go past 200-run total on four occasions - most by any team last season. The middle-order appears as solid as their top, with the likes of Ambati Rayudu, Dhoni and Dwayne Bravo bolstering them. Rayudu, in particular, looked in ominous form last season, scoring 602 runs in 16 matches at a healthy average of 43. He also had a hundred and three fifties to his name last season. © BCCL The likes of Mohit Sharma, Lungi Ngidi, Shardul Thakur, David Willey and Deepak Chahar look potent to add teeth to their pace attack, while the all-round options in Watson and Bravo should cover for them as a contingency plan in the middle. Chennai also have some options in the spin-bowling department, with Imran Tahir, Ravindra Jadeja and Karn Sharma in fray. For a team that was mocked for signing old-aged players last season, Chennai made the critics eat their own words by pulling off a dream title-winning comeback. And, going into the twelfth edition, Chennai will be eager to carry on their winning momentum as they chase a record fourth title this year. Squad: MS Dhoni (c/wk), Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Faf du Plessis, Harbhajan Singh, Dwayne Bravo, Shane Watson, Kedar Jadhav, Ambati Rayudu, Deepak Chahar, KM Asif, Lungi Ngidi, Dhruv Shorey, Murali Vijay, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sam Billings, Monu Kumar, Chaitanya Bishnoi, Imran Tahir, Karn Sharma, Shardul Thakur, Narayan Jagadeesan, Mitchell Santner, Mohit Sharma, Shardul Thakur, David Willey.
  9. Probably one of the most hardworking and well respected members of the Indian and international cricket fraternity, Mahendra Singh Dhoni was one of the athletes who was kept in the spotlight for the infamous spot-fixing incident that took place in 2013. The event rose to actor Vindu Dara Singh and the Chennai Super Kings leader Gurunath Meiyappan being arrested by the Mumbai Police on alleged betting rows and maintaining close contact with the bookies. During the investigation, a lot of players were interrogated and pressurised to break, in order to come out with the truth. “The team was involved, I was accused too. It was a tough phase for all of us,” said a very serious MS Dhoni in the trailer for 'Roar of the Lion', a Hotstar documentary. “Fans felt that the punishment was harsh. Coming back was an emotional moment and I have always said, what doesn't kill you makes you strong.” In 2017, a committee established by Justice Mukul Mudgal surfaced a report which basically describes Dhoni's willingness to play according to the demands of the bookies against a match against the Rajasthan Royals. © India Today “The biggest crime that I can commit is not a murder, it is actually match fixing,” said the former Indian skipper. Watch how @msdhoni and a bunch of men in yellow jerseys wrote one of India's greatest comeback stories. #HotstarSpecials is proud to present #RoarOfTheLion. Trailer out. pic.twitter.com/nkWpV1EPnl — Hotstar Specials (@HotstarSpecials) March 10, 2019 When Meiyappan was found guilty of the crimes, the entire Chennai Super Kings franchise was barred from competition for two years, keeping the then two-time IPL champs away from the league in 2016 and 2017. During the span of two years, MSD was bought by the brand new franchise, Rising Pune Supergiant in 2016. While the franchise came seventh amongst eight teams that year, they succeeded to make it to the final the next season, only to lose to Rohit Sharma and the Mumbai Indians. After the ban on CSK was lifted the next season in 2018, Dhoni retained his 'Thala' status as he, along with Suresh Raina, got the city of Chennai their third IPL title.
  10. Diljit Dosanjh is probably the only other fashionista in the country who can give Ranveer Singh and Karan Johar a solid run for their money when it comes to maximalism. His raw, rustic appeal is a perfect contrast against the hypebeast appeal his clothes exude. His wardrobe can legit be used as a fashion masterclass when it comes to brand-spotting, and some of them are super expensive (duh). Here are 5 pieces that we love, and probably can never afford. 1. The Dapper Dan Necklace From Gucci © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh This one, without a doubt, is Diljit's favourite accessory. He has worn it with almost every statement outfit of his and rocked it every single time. It costs a whopping Rs 2.4 Lakhs. 2. The Oversized Purple Teddy Bear Sweater From Amiri © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh The super playful oversized purple sweater from Amiri with a teddy bear patch costs 1190 Dollars, which when converted to INR, is around Rs 83,500. In its defence, it's really cute. 3. The 'Blame It On My Youth' Leather Jacket By Misbhv © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh Who won't want to own this classic piece with the super funky slogan? They can, of course, if they can spare Rs. 82.500. 4. Balenciaga Oversized Padded Logo-Print Cotton-Poplin Shirt © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh This cotton-poplin shirt with extra-big sleeves from Balenciaga costs INR 1,22,520. 5. Jeans From Gosha Rubchinskiy © Viral Bhayani It's 'not much', but will you be willing to pay INR 36,270 for a pair of jeans? Probably, if you're Diljit! Some day, Paaji, some day.
  11. Finding the right sized pants is like finding a unicorn. The prospect looks so damn appealing except the chances of spotting one in a lifetime are next to none. But if you are blessed with the knowledge of what works and what to stay away from, you can cut it pretty damn close. Here's a definitive guide that can help you figure out if you're wearing the wrong sized pants. In order to hunt for the right sized pants from the market, here's what you need to keep in mind. So, while you're in the trial room, be on the lookout for pants with: 1. A proper inseam length, A pair of trousers that are neither too short nor too long. A slight break is great, however, a big break definitely means that the pants are too long. © Getty Images 2. Obviously, if they are too loose and baggy, or alternatively skin tight, look for another more appropriate size that fits you well. © Getty Images 3. While wearing the pants, try walking around and jumping to see if the fitting remains snug, also to see if the pants are allowing you to be mobile. A pair of comfortable pants go a long way. 4. Here's a fact: lightweight fabric trousers wrinkle more quickly and look like they do not fit well as opposed to a pair of pants cut from a heavier fabric like wool or tweed fabric that drapes and hangs well and is long lasting. © Getty Images 5. Besides the fit, over the course of the day, the pants will move around. A belt and side-adjusters will help to keep it in place, but only a pair of suspenders can guarantee a great fit all day long. © Getty Images Here are other things you should look out for in the fitting of your pants: 6. If you see wrinkles like these, your pants are too tight in the crotch area. Have the seat seam opened up in case you have enough fabric reserved. © MensXP 7. When you sit, if you end up with bunching rolls of fabric in the fly area and lap and feel there is too much material in this area, consult with an alterations tailor. © MensXP 8. If you can see these wrinkles in pants, chances are the pants were not adjusted properly for him. You may also see that the trousers may cling to the wearer's legs in the back. This definitely signals that you need to wear the right size. © MensXP 9. The reason for the creases is tightness in the seat seam. It has to be let out and reshaped with a heavy iron. Also, it could be your suspenders/braces pulling too hard. Loosen them a little first to see if that fixes the issue. © MensXP 10. A horseshoe fold takes place if the underside of the trouser is cut too close to the wearer's thigh. Diagonal creases on the inside of your thighs and your pants that stick to the calves are also visible. In such a scenario, you need more length in the front of the trouser, in order for the back to look normal. © MensXP 11. If you see wrinkles when you are seated, chances are your pants have the wearer in the area of the knee when walking. You will definitely have to consult a good alterations tailor. © MensXP 12. If you get creases that start in the crotch area and continue vertically left and right, the trousers are definitely too big for you. Have them adjusted in the seat, crotch and side seams. © MensXP
  12. Like most young adults, getting acne problems is fairly normal. While there are regular routine treatments to get rid of acne, if you have a time constraint ahead of you and you need to get rid of acne, which are smack in the middle of your face, there are ways to get rid of your acne and make it less visible. Firstly, before beginning, it's important to know that while the option of popping the pimple might be super tempting, you should never do that. Popping pimples result in scars that might take a lot longer to disappear than you anticipate. 1. Use A Pimple Patch © Getty Images A pimple patch is like any other patch. It's a spot treatment in the form of a patch that you stick on your face for the duration that it asks of you. After the time period, just rip off the patch to see your pimples quieten down. This will definitely help in situations when you don't have time. 2. Dab A Concealer © Getty Images A concealer is a cream with pigments of the same tone as your skin tone. Once you dab a concealer on your face, the marks and spots will be concealed temporarily. 3. Tooth Paste © Getty Images A known trick to get rid of pimples. A toothpaste, when applied generously around the pimple, instantly quietens it down and removes the redness and puffiness. 4. Acne Control Cream © Getty Images An acne control cream intensely works on acne-causing bacteria and attempts to eradicate them. They come with special properties of Neem and Clove that help reduce the inflammation and redness and restore natural skin growth.
  13. Being playful as a trait, we feel, is extremely underrated in the domain of fashion. Yes, looking sharp, smart, and sophisticated are important, but the thing that brings out the spunk of the outfits and lets one take a look at the relaxed, easygoing side of the soul of the wearer's style statement, is the element of playfulness. A man always looks better when he has styled himself in a way that's fun, and not stuck up. The relaxed, playful vibe is here to stay, and it only elevates one's fashion game to the next level. Actor Tushar Khanna follows this golden rule, and his wardrobe testifies. Tushar is wearing: Sweatshirt: Dom Rebel at Collective India, Jeans: H&M, Footwear: Adidas Originals, Eyewear: Versace at Luxottica Tushar opened up about his style statement and all things fashion in this candid interview.

Do that and you'll never go wrong! Tushar is wearing: Sweatshirt: Dom Rebel at Collective India, Jeans: H&M, Footwear: Adidas Originals, Eyewear: Versace at Luxottica 2.

  14. The fascinating world of sports becomes even more interesting when you see couples coming together from different sports and bringing the two worlds together. Here is a list of the top-most influential couples in the sporting fraternity, that are not only successful but also super fashionable: 1. Stephanie McMahon & Paul "Triple H" Levesque This wrestling couple has a long history of ups and downs but they're still stellar with their individual unique personalities.

Sania Nehwal & Parupalli Kashyap Sania Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap have had a close bond since they were children. The couple are great players individually and together also they work really well.

Sania Mirza & Shoaib Malik Shoaib Malik is a Pakistani cricketer and the former captain of the Pakistani side from 2007 to 2009. He's done pretty well for the Pakistani cricket team and then there is Sania Mirza, who doesn't need any introduction. She's constantly proven herself on the field and off it, she can be seen shutting people up and being verbal about the sexism women face in the world of sports. She's always been open about her relationship with Shoaib despite the criticism that she's faced, proving that as long as two people believe in that one relationship, the constantly poking media can't ruin it no matter what.

  15. Sony's smartphone business has not seen any great traction in the recent past however that will now change with the Xperia 1. The Japanese company announced the Xperia 1 at MWC and it as has a very tall 21:9 display. It's Sony's new flagship smartphone and is the world's first smartphone with 4K resolution. (c) Sony Sony plans to breathe new life into its smartphone lineup by launching a smartphone with a very unique feature. The 4K resolution is probably aimed at users who like to watch a lot of video content on streaming apps such as Netflix and Amazon Prime. The Sony Xperia 1 has a 6.5” display which Sony calls “CinemaWide” as it combines 1-style image processing, as seen on Bravia TVs with the colour calibration of Sony's professional master monitors. The display also supports HDR content and as Dolby Atmos sound for the complete cinematic experience. The Sony Xperia 1 has stereo speakers at the bottom and in the earpiece. The screen on the Sony Xperia 1 is so tall that it is 1 full inch taller than the iPhone XS Max. (c) SlashLeaks Since the display is so tall, Sony is already emphasising on features such as using the extra real estate for using multiple apps at once (two apps at once). The tall screen is also capable of showing more information on the screen, especially when you browse the internet, read texts or emails. (c) Sony Other specifications for the Xperia 1 include a triple camera set up at the back where one is a 26mm wide lens (with OIS), a 52mm telephoto lens (also with OIS), and a 16mm superwide lens. The Sony Xperia 1 is also powered by Qualcomm's latest chipset i.e. Snapdragon 855. It has 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage and is water resistant. The fingerprint sensor on the Xperia 1 is on the side of the smartphone. For a 4K display, Sony is offering a 3,300 mAh battery with USB Power Delivery 3.0 support. Sony is targeting to launch the Xperia 1 by Spring and will be available in Black, Grey, White, or Purple.
  16. As one of the youngest religions in the world, Sikhism glorifies the practice of growing one's hair out. More so, for spiritual and religious purposes, but it's said, that by avoiding a trim/cut, Sikhs honour their almighty as well. Besides, it's a symbol of freedom and equality. But while their tresses are most often covered with turbans, their beards do see the light of the day. They are subjected to every day climatic changes, the pollution, dust and external elements, that affect their over-all hygiene and health. Since the beard is almost like a uniform for the Sikhs, it's unfair to not pay heed towards maintaining it. Long story short: we're here with a decisive routine for Sikh men, to keep their glory-beards in top form. © Instagram/houseofwaris 1. For basics, invest in the right edibles You are what you eat, so the most fundamental trick to a healthy and lustrous beard is to maintain a diet that's rich in nutrients. Indulge in healthy fats like avocados, omega-3s, nuts, eggs, vegetables (of course) and ample amount of protein (helps in hair growth). In addition, ensure that your intake of biotin is adequate as well. Don't forget to add antioxidants and vitamins as it helps to build up collagen which promotes hair growth. The best way is to have a balance diet to get the micronutrients into your system.. © Getty Images 2. Ever heard of a Beard Wash? As the owner of an unshorn beard, you need to use a beard wash for sure; to help you cleanse and soften it. Beard wash contains organic and skin friendly ingredients. The best beard wash is one that doesn't contain sulphates and parabens. HOW TO APPLY: Wet your beard with lukewarm water and apply beard wash directly at the roots and massage it gently on your beard and the skin underneath so that it exfoliates and cleanses it. Never forget to wash your beard with beard wash everyday if you use hair styling products, otherwise just wash it with lukewarm water and oil it once/twice a week. P.S. Never ever use a head shampoo on your beard, as the skin on your face is different than that of the scalp. Choose a milder shampoo (beard wash) for your beard. © Getty Images 3. Use a beard oil to keep your beard healthy In order to add a feather to a Sikh Man's turban, the primary tip is to always oil your hair for a lustrous and crisp look of the beard. The best oil is one that is composed of essential oils that condition and moisturize your hair follicles and the skin beneath it to give a calming and soothing effect. It helps to keep everything in place. 4. Use a conditioner Hair conditioner is a hair care product used to improve the feel, appearance and manageability of hair. Its main purpose is to reduce friction between strands of hair to allow easier brushing or combing, which might otherwise cause damage. Using a conditioner is totally up to one's preference as it depends on the type of hair one has. If you think your beard's frizzy or rough, we recommend you to use a conditioner. © Getty Images Steps you need to follow to groom your beard post showering, conditioning and moisturizing: 1. Hold your horses and let your beard dry until it's semi-dry. Never use styling products on a wet beard as you will end up using a lot of it. 2. Always tie your beard as it gives a cleaner and presentable look. Since Sikhs can't trim or shape their beard, it's better to set it using a beard wax/taft hair spray. 3. Don't use excessive hair styling products on your beard as it damages the skin underneath and spoils the hair strength and cements your hair to your face which looks extremely ugly. © Getty Images 4. Try to straighten your beard with a comb instead of brush as it gives a cleaner look and also prevents damage to your fragile hair on your face. Always comb in the direction of the grain of your beard. © Getty Images 5. Use a fairly loose rubber band to tie your beard, as a tighter rubber band would cause hair loss and irritation. If you have a fairly long beard, you can use a small bobby pin to keep your beard in place. 6. Finally, blow dry your beard so that it can stay in place throughout the day and makes you look dapper. © Getty Images And voila, you're all set!
  17. What usually comes to your mind when you hear the word 'Doctor'? An elderly, pleasant looking gentleman with probably a paunch and kind eyes who either comforts you with his kind eyes or creeps the living daylights out of you with his evil grin (but that's the stuff from horror movies). Anyway, when that imagery is challenged by someone who even remotely falls outside of that category, they tend to leave a lasting impression. Especially, if they go right ahead and look like they stepped out of a model catalogue or the cast of Grey's Anatomy, they deserve to be applauded because hey, it takes a lot of effort to establish oneself as a doctor. Clearly, Dr Rodrigo Sapo has what it takes, and more. He looks like a muscled, bearded model who spends his waking hours in the gym instead of a hospital, and that doesn't even begin to describe what he looks like. Here are 10 pictures that shows why patients line up to get check-ups by him, even when they are not ill. 1. To begin with, a doctor who looks like that clearly has figured out how to live a healthy life.

  18. If someone ever had a doubt about who is the biggest fashionista in the Pataudi family, they are just about to get a definitive answer to end their dilemma. The answer is Saif Ali Khan, and no, even Kareena doesn't stand a chance. Why do we think so? Chhote Nawab anyway has a perpetual royal aesthetic, but we just got to know that he even casually spends quality time with his family and pets while dressed like the Nawabs we read about in our history books. Take a look. © Instagram/allgupshup Look at him wearing that super regal outfit. The royal AF black velvet shrug with silk trimmings looks straight out of a fashion lesson from history. It's fit for a red carpet, of course, but our Chhote Nawab here just decided to chill in it. And why won't he? Who doesn't want the feel of a ginormous flowy velvet robe fluttering behind as they walk up and down the royal hallways? © Instagram/allgupshup The plain white kurta pyjama is relaxed and super comfortable, but that definitely doesn't take away from the 'fancy' element. In fact, anything else would be overkill with that giant of a robe (well, it already is kind of veering towards it). The stuffed tiger is kind of a metaphor to the fierceness of his loungewear, if you will. © Instagram/allgupshup He steps on to the grounds next, but that doesn't mean that he should get rid of his velvet moccasins. Taimur clearly understands his dad's predicament here, being so camera-friendly himself, as is suggested by his picture-perfect, composed demeanour. The royal dog is cooperative too. As Kareena stands behind in mom-jeans and a super relaxed sweater, we get the answer to our original question: Who is the biggest fashionista in the Pataudi family?
  19. In a perfect scenario, you would always smell good down there. However, in everyday life, it isn't possible to smell good always. This is because the genital region has sebaceous and apocrine glands, which make oil and sweat, also the area can get overheated under layers of clothes and underwear, all of this can lead to bacterial growth that causes some strong smells. At the end of a day, alone or with someone, you wouldn't want to strip down to funky smelling underwear right? Precisely why you need to do something about it. There are ways to help keep it under control though. 1. Shower Daily © Getty Images We know that we're stating the obvious but sometimes, a pungent smell can be caused because of the most basic of reasons. In case you don't shower reason everyday, it's about time you start doing so. Not showering daily makes it easier for bacterial infestations. 2. Trim Regularly © Getty Images We're not against body hair. In fact, body hair in no way undermines your sexual health. However, at the same time if you don't trim regularly the grown hair surely can factor into a bad smell. 3. Water Low water levels can also affect your glands and result in funky smelling junk. Just keep your water intake at par which anyway is healthy for you. 4. Invest In Products © Getty Images If you're still paranoid about smelling good or none of the above steps seem to be working for you, it's time you invest in specialized products. For an intimate wash you could choose from: The Men's Lab Intimate Wash For Men © Amazon Below the Belt Grooming for Men Fresh and Dry Balls Gel Cool © Amazon Guysome, Chocolate Fragrance Intimate Hygiene Wash for Men with Vitamin E and Sea Buckthorn Extract © Amazon Keeo Intimate Wash for Men with Tea Tree Oil, Lavender Oil & Aloe Vera Extract © Amazon Namyaa Intimate Hygiene Wash For Men/Women With Tea Tree Extracts © Amazon 5. Visit A Doctor While intimate washes is a good place to start, if your junk still doesn't cease to smell funky, it's time you visited a doctor. The prescription drugs and medicine shall be far more effective if nothing works out or it could be an infection waiting to be discovered. Take these things seriously.
  20. Having a sense of style is not just about a closet full of clothes or shoes. It's not even about expensive staples or that expensive pair of leather boots. Think of your closet as a building block. It's your accessories that make the big difference- the hard-to-find hats or sunglasses, all paired together, that make you, you. Accessories are the true storytellers. And here are all kinds of accessories you can invest a small amount of money in, which will make you go a long way: 1. Dress Socks Unsplash Get rid of your boring white socks. Opt for vibrant socks for all occasions! Whether you're trying to impress your boss or keep your feet from turning into ground beef during a half-marathon, colourful socks should be your go-to. And how expensive do you think fancy socks are anyway? Not much to be honest! 2. Scarf Unsplash Whether you're trying to provide a pop of colour to your outfit or sober it down, scarves are a very large accessory in the game! They come in a variety of styles and prints and should definitely have a big spot in your vanity! And a nice scarf will set you back about Rs. 3000, but will make you look like a million bucks. 3. Hat Unsplash I hear you- hats can often be very difficult to wear properly. But let's break it down for you. Wear the classic fedora or trilby, to keep it casual. Keep the wool hat for when you wear a suit. For very casual wear, beanies, baseball caps, or bucket hats are more appropriate. And hats will normally cost you around Rs. 1000-2000. 4. Watches Myntra Sure, your phone can tell time, but a great-looking timepiece shows a little extra effort. And even in 2019, watches are timeless. Almost every man owns a watch, and if not, what are you waiting for? You're lucky that there's a bomb of a watch launching soon! The TRYST Collection by MyntraXFossil is something you will want to get your hands on, or should we say get it on your hands! Tryst is a perfect blend of fashion, backed by technology and the finesse of a fine watchmaker. Tryst, derives its name from people's tryst with time, during everyday routines and the heartiest of moments and connects it metaphorically with the classical wrist watch, as it transcends those moments. The collection comes under three sections- Fashionista, Wanderlust and Athleisure, targeting millennials, like you and me. And these beautiful pieces will be available on Myntra at prices starting Rs 4,500! Isn't that a great deal? 5. Bags Unsplash Style doesn't stop with things you wear. Things like backpacks, briefcases, suitcases, and even kits do a lot of the same work of telling the world a bit about who you are as your blazer, shirt, or pants. And a decent, good-looking bag will cost anything between Rs. 3000-5000. So there you have it! Let us know in comments if this helped!
  21. We don't watch the Super Bowl here in India - I don't think it's even broadcasted here - but it's one of the biggest sporting events in the USA and somehow, also becomes international news. The highlight of this year's Super Bowl, though, was Adam Levine and his nipples. Yep, his nips. © Twitter But, to understand why that's causing so much backlash, we have to remember a Super Bowl halftime show from a few years ago, 15 years to be exact. The infamous show from 2004 featured Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson, and a controversy that is still talked about. During the show, Justin went to remove Janet's corset but accidentally tore off her bra too, exposing her bare breast. What followed was a widespread criticism for Janet Jackson which affected her career tremendously, but Justin Timberlake moved on unscathed. But, the infamous 'Nipplegate' is being talked about again today because well, didn't Adam Levine do the exact same thing, but just intentionally? People are questioning why Janet Jackson's nipples were such a problem when Adam Levine is not being pulled up for the same thing. While offended, people haven't lost their sense of humour and are tweeting sarcastic funny thing. Here's what everyone is saying: Eww, nips. now I have to explain to my children that adam levine has nipples — ziwe (@ziwe) February 4, 2019 Exactly the same. adam levine took off his shirt like an uncle at thanksgiving when kid rock comes on — elijah daniel (@elijahdaniel) February 4, 2019 There were a lot of home decor comparisons as well.

  22. The 'Super Bowl' is a widely watched event worldwide and hence always brings a bag of goodies in the form of some big shot trailers and teasers dropping our way. Here are the top 5 movies trailers that left us all excited: 1. Avengers: Endgame- Tony Stark is coming back and everyone is gearing up to take on Thanos. How do we keep calm now? April is way too far! 2. Captain Marvel- This one is going to be special with Brie Larson, as the insanely powerful Captain Marvel, getting stuck and fighting it out between two alien races. 3. Toy Story 4- This one is packed with a lot of action and nostalgia because Bo Peep is coming back after more than 20 years after making a debut back in 1999. The movie will hit theatres in June. 4. Fast And Furious Presents: Hobbs And Shaw- This is going to be the 'Fast And Furious' spin-off that we deserve and stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham who will begrudgingly join hands to fight the terror known as Brixton. 5. The Handmaid's Tale ( Season 3)- If you're a fan of this mega-popular series, then we know that you're on pins and needles waiting for the release of this one. After the last season left fans on a cliffhanger, this one promises more drama. So, which one are you the most excited for? Let us know in the comment section.
  23. Lakmé Fashion Week, after a sparkling opening day with designer Gaurav Gupta's show, "(Un)fold" has been an eye-opener. From mesmerizing designs to breathtaking silhouettes, the week has definitely been a head-turner so far. The show saw Anita Dongre yesterday and will end with a finale by Shantanu and Nikhil. The best about any Fashion Week isn't just the runway but also the street style that we get to witness. People go wild with outfits and come up with the best of ways to create something that we normally don't get to see off the runway. But apart from the clothes, the most interesting thing we noticed this time was the varied hairstyles that people exhibited. So, here is a collection of hairstyles that we really liked from the Fashion Week: 1. The Long Hued Mane © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik The best part about this hairstyle is that the colour gives out a laidback hipster vibe. 2.Combed Back Mane © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik However, if you don't want to go for something shaded, try going au naturel. 3. A Classic Quiff © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik If you want to keep it short and classic, go for a quiff. That's always a low maintenance style. 4. A Beautiful Chaos © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik Take a cue from this man and if you're bold enough to make the move. Grow your hair in an afro style. 5. A Buzz Cut © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik This hairstyle works great for the Summer and beats the heat like a breeze. 6. The Classic Salt & Pepper © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik Embrace the white strands because there are endless ways you could style them as. Exhibit A. 7. The Shoulder-Length Cut © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik Not only does this look sleek but also super enigmatic because there are not many who can pull this off. 8. The Curled-Up Mane © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik You can grow your curly crop too. You just need the right styling tools to maintain it. 9. The Shaded Buzzcut © MensXP/Sowrav Bhowmik Take a cue from Zayn Malik for creating a wild buzz cut that is rad and edgy like this one.
  24. Looking back in time, I had always wanted to become a cricketer and my entire childhood was spent on the pitch. Then came the shock for me, as just like many talented young players, I could not clear the national trials and sadly had to put the bat down. My parents and teachers asked me to focus on the dreaded board exams. Back then I was extremely skinny. So skinny that my ribs were visible to the naked eye! People assumed that just because I was skinny, I was weak, which resulted in me getting bullied. This got to my head at times and I wanted to hit back but since I was way too skinny, they would often overpower me. This constant body shaming was bringing down my morale and confidence. Then I thought that if I would gain some weight, people will stop picking on me and I could stand up for myself. I joined a gym solely for this purpose. When I went in, I couldn't even lift a 2.5 kg dumbbell and even bodyweight exercises would hurt me. I was yet again bullied at the gym. I got frustrated within a week with all the bullying at the gym and decided to quit. Later that night, I saw Yash Anand's body transformation on YouTube. He was skinny just like me. Actually, even skinnier! But with consistency and hard work he built a great physique. This motivated me to forget about my bullies and just focus on my goal. Since that day there has been no turning back. Week by week, I overcame my weaknesses and got stronger. I learned from different Indian YouTubers and made my diet that fitted my lifestyle and budget. Training I usually follow two muscle groups a day routine and split it up into push-pull. Compound movements still are the core of my training. Progressive overload plays another big factor in muscle growth that I have always kept in mind. Eating I counted the calories that I needed in order to put on muscle mass and that was about it. I cook all my meals and keep a check on how much I am consuming and what all I am eating throughout the day. My ultimate goal is to build a physique like Hrithik Roshan, and I believe that in the last 2 years I have made some progress towards my goal. And I will continue to better myself each day.
  25. Setting up LED light strips is not something new as gamers have been using this technique for their setups for a while. However, with home automation becoming more accessible and IFTTT is advancing at a rapid pace to make it more affordable. You can control lights from your smartphone and change colours with infinite possibilities. You can setup different moods, lighting effects and scenes straight from the palm of your hand. Currently, the only two reliable brands that sell smart LED light strips in India are Phillips and Yeelight. I chose the latter to set up my room because it costs exactly half as much as the Phillips Hue light strip. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Yeelight Aurora Smart LED Light strip costs Rs 3,200 in India while the Phillips equivalent costs Rs 6,000. Of course, I would end up using the cheaper option because it does the same exact job for cheaper. You can always use other light strips from other brands; however, we aren't sure about whether their ecosystems or even their apps are reliable. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla A smart LED strip can be used for various purposes, such as lighting up the back end of a TV/Monitor so that it reduces eye strain. We can even use these light strips for indoor decorations during parties or for festivals like Diwali. What's cool is that you can even sync the Yeelight Smart LED Light strip with some of their other lighting products to get that uniform look. The Yeelight lightstrip supports 16 million colors and goes up to 140 lumens, which results in better illumination at a really affordable price. How To Set It Up Setting up the Yeelight Smart LED light strip is quite simple and straight forward. You will need to follow these steps below to get started: 1. Download the Yeelight app on your Android/iOS device. 2. Launch the app to see your listed products i.e. the Yeelight Smart LED Light strip. 3. Follow instructions to pair your device and light strips using Wi-FI and Bluetooth 4. If you need to reset your Yeelight LED Light strip, follow this instructional video below: 5. You're now ready to use the light strip How To Customise Colours And Set Scenes Once you're all setup, you can change the colours of your light strip according to your liking. I chose the colour red as all my PC components were also using the same hue and I like uniformity in my workspace. All you need to do is go to the device page, tap on your product and then select your colour to your liking. You can even change the brightness level to your liking, this comes in handy when you're watching a movie or having a date night. © Akshay Bhalla If you don't want to manually change colours every single time, you can also setup scenes so that you don't have to manually tap on a colour each time. You can also add lighting effects/moods in scenes such as a sunrise effect or night mode. In my party scene, I've setup a yellow light that would flicker like a candle. You can also customise the number of times you want the light to flicker and the duration in the customisations tab. As we said before, lighting effects are limitless if you know what you're doing. Automation The great thing about the Yeelight Smart LED that is compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Echo. It even works with Siri Shortcuts if you are an iPhone that works similarly to aforementioned voice assistants. Here's how you set it up with Google Assistant Open the Google Home app and tap on the Add icon. Select Set up device Works with Google and search for Yeelight. Tap on it to open the Xiaomi login page. This action will link your Xiaomi account and your Google Home account. Sign in using the same credentials that you used to sign-in to your Yeelights app. Assign the Yeelight Smart Light strip to a room Give a nickname if you want to use your own phrase Siri Shortcuts © Akshay Bhalla Siri Shortcuts work only after you setup a scene on the Yeelight app. After setting up you can add a Siri Shortcut straight from the Yeelight App and it will ask you record your phrase. Since I have two scenes setup, I've recorded my phrases as “Turn on Gaming Lights”or “Turn on Party Lights”. So there you have it, you can now have super cool looking room that is completely automated. You can always use cheaper LED light strips that come with a remote to change colours. However, since these aren't compatible with Digital voice assistants or have IFTTT support, you will be limited to using single colours and lack customisation options.
