  1. With all the free time the COVID-19 quarantine has forced upon us, thereâs a tendency to spend a lot of it daydreaming (especially if you live alone) about the day it all finally ends - seeing friends and family after perhaps the longest gap many of us have ever experienced, and hopefully planning the recovery party to end all recovery parties. Right now though, weâre all on hold. Some of us have dealt with things by avoiding depressing news statistics, some of us have thrown ourselves into work-from-home cycles fearing the inevitable tide of layoffs and some of us are simply stuck in confusion. As part of the latter, itâs not uncommon to find myself bringing up memories of life before quarantine, and how we took everything from football matches to family outings and even professional handshakes for granted. Hereâs a list of some of the things Iâve gone back to while stuck in lockdown - letâs see what you can relate to as well. 1. Crowds © Reuters With everyone cooped up at home, our cities have turned into eerie, empty shells of what they once were. 2. Hugs © Reuters A little physical appreciation goes a long way, especially in rough times. Itâs truly a shame that many of us will probably think twice even after all of this is over. 3. Dating © Reuters I donât know about you guys, but love in the time of Corona has been pretty much nonexistent. 4. Personal Space © Unsplash Conversely, many of us at home with partners and family have suddenly been deprived of our me-time. Being stuck at home during a crisis undoubtedly leads to disagreements and arguments - without the space needed to maintain a healthy relationship, even the company we have can gradually become suffocating. 5. Travel © Reuters Whether for work or for leisure, getting out and about - seeing the world is an absolute joy and necessity for many of us who love to travel. Right now, weâre unlikely to explore anywhere further than our apartmentâs gates. 6. Shopping © Reuters Many of us enjoy a bit of retail therapy when we can afford it. Unfortunately, malls and shopping centres have turned into ghost towns all over the world across the last few weeks 7. Prayer and Worship © Reuters While many of us couldnât care less, several others found comfort and peace in visiting temples, churches, mosques, gurudwaras and monasteries during tough times. Iâm sure weâre all praying for the virus to leave humanity alone, but for those with a religious bent, it isnât quite the same anymore. 8. Sports Events © Reuters For many sports fans, their true religions - from football leagues to cricket tournaments - have vanished overnight with no clear replacement. 9. Healthcare © Reuters While falling sick is never fun, catching a minor bug can lead to massive anxiety and frustration, given how terrified we all are of catching COVID-19 symptoms. While weâve previously had few qualms when it comes to visiting a doctor, getting near a clinic or hospital these days can be downright scary. 10. Fitness © Reuters Hitting the gym used to be a massive source of both mental and physical fortitude for us - one that weâve had to substitute with home workouts and other solutions that just arenât the same as busting out a weightlifting routine or working on your form with trainers and fellow gym-mates. 11. Movie Theatres © Reuters How long do we have before the TV series binges get old? Not much Iâd expect - and for film buffs around the world, not having access to escape into the world of cinema at your favourite theatre can be downright heartbreaking. 12. Predictability In Everyday Life © Reuters This one is perhaps a bit abstract, but several of us found comfort and confidence in maintaining a daily schedule of sorts - managing our lives around work, family and our own personal interests. With the pandemic surging on, many of these routines have shattered, leaving us to pick up the pieces and move on in a world where tomorrow seems quite uncertain. 13. Education © Reuters While those of us with jobs have our own concerns to worry about, students donât have it much better either. Several examinations such as the 10th and 12th boards, key entrance exams and the day-to-day functioning of both minor and major universities have been hamstrung by the COVID-19 outbreak. Imagine taking out a student loan, and discovering that your first semester was spent relying on correspondence courses through the internet, rather than the education youâve actually paid for. 14. Dressing Up © Reuters Sure you can try and pull off a good look while at home, but whatâs a nice outfit without a compliment or two from your friends, and the right place to pull it off? 15. Driving © Reuters Perhaps Iâm speaking for myself (and a whole lot of motorheads) here, but putting my hands behind a steering wheel or a bikeâs handlebars was great fun and a spectacular way to unwind. Itâs even worse considering how traffic-free the roads and highways around us are today. Weâre sure thereâs much more to feel nostalgic for. But, as the situation develops, weâll hopefully be back to enjoying these things again. Share some of the pre-quarantine things you miss in the comments! View the full article
  2. Instead of their usual pictures, everyone has now been sharing a collage of their pictures and honestly, that's the only thing people have posted these past few days. The 'LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Tinder' meme has spread like wildfire on the internet and has everyone going through all of their pictures to find the perfect one to fit every category. And, as always, even celebrities couldn't stay away from this viral trend, of course. Actually, it was all started by a celeb only, yep, legendary singer Dolly Parton was the one to bless us all with this self-indulgent trend. View this post on InstagramGet you a woman who can do it all ðA post shared by (@dollyparton) Also, is this the first proper meme of the year, and decade?

  3. Photo: FileKARACHI: Global credit rating agency Fitch Ratings on Monday affirmed Pakistan’s long term foreign currency rating at B- with a stable outlook, saying the country has taken positive steps on fiscal front as well as measures to strengthen external finance, reported The News. “Progress is being made towards strengthening external finances and positive steps have been made on the fiscal front, but considerable risks remain,” the New York-based rating agency said. Fitch said external vulnerabilities have been reduced over the past year as a result of policy actions and financing unlocked through an International Monetary Fund (IMF) programme, which have narrowed the current account deficit and supported a modest rebuilding of reserves. Also read: Huawei says 'survival' top priority as sales fall short “Still, external finances remain fragile with relatively low foreign-exchange reserves in the context of an elevated external debt repayment schedule and subdued export performance,” it noted. The IMF’s Extended Fund Facility is on track, with the first review completed in December. However, implementation risks remain high in Fitch’s view, particularly given the politically challenging nature of the authorities’ reform agenda. Fitch forecasts a further narrowing of the current account deficit to 2.1 per cent of GDP in the year ending June 2020 (FY20) and 1.9 per cent in FY21, from 4.9 per cent in the last fiscal year. Also read: IMF bailout to negatively impact Pakistan's short-run growth: Fitch It held import compression as the driver narrowing deficit, facilitated by rupee depreciation of around 30 per cent since December 2017 and tighter monetary conditions. Exports were forecast to grow modestly from a low base. The State Bank of Pakistan's (SBP) adoption of a more flexible exchange rate last May and capital inflows were also supporting a rebuilding of foreign-exchange reserves. Fitch expects gross liquid foreign-exchange reserves to rise to around $11.5 billion by FYE20, from $7.2 billion at FYE19. “We expect continued adherence to the new exchange rate regime to help rebuild foreign-exchange reserves and improve external resilience,” Fitch said. “Public finances are a key credit weakness and deteriorated further in FY19 prior to the approval of the IMF programme,” it noted. Also read: Pakistan budget deficit projected to increase to 6% in 2019: Fitch The agency said gross external financing needs of the country would likely remain high, in the mid-$20 billion range, over the medium-term due to considerable debt repayments and despite smaller current account deficit. Fitch said government debt rose to 84.8 per cent of GDP, well above the current ‘B’ median of 54 per cent, due to currency depreciation. Debt/revenue also jumped sharply to 667 per cent, compared with the historic ‘B’ median of 252 per cent. The government was consolidating public finances, but Fitch believes progress would be challenging due to the relatively high reliance on revenues to achieve the planned adjustment.
  4. While Bollywood's blatant silence has made the country wonder if the industry is actually spineless, fortunately, some people from the entertainment industry who've outrightly spoken up against the implementation of the NRC and the CAA, and we're really gald they have. Popular rapper and music composer Raftaar has spoken up and taken a stand against the imposition of the NRC and the CAA. At his concert recently, he spoke to his audience about it and received a big cheer from everyone in the crowd. He made a statement before his performance, which will be remembered for a long time to come. Twitter At the concert, Raftaar introduced his friend Arshad to the crowd and said "Before starting, I want to make something seriously clear, whether my career goes on tomorrow or it doesn't I am not bothered, I have earned enough so that I don't die of hunger. This man's name is Arshad, he takes care of me to the extent that nobody can even push me. If anyone talks about asking him to leave this country, I am ready to take a bullet for it *expletive*.” As the crowd cheered the singer, he added “Whether they are Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, or Muslims, they are all our brothers, I will not let anyone be taken out of the country. After this, I do not care what happens to my career.” Twitter/Quint With these powerful words Raftaar gave his performance while the crowd cheered him on. Raftaar, originally named Dilin Nair, was formerly a member of the urban music group Mafia Mundeer formed by Yo Yo Honey Singh. He's amongst the few artists who have openly spoken up against the CAA act. While everyone has the right to an opinion, giving an opinion is very important, especially if you're a famous personality, since a lot of people look up to what famous people think, say and feel. Bollywood's unfathomable silence is something the country really doesn't need right now, when the conditions are unfavourable all around. What it truly needs are more people like Raftaar, who will voluntarily and involuntarily give an opinion, knowing and understanding the issue at hand and how people truly feel about it.

  5. A left-arm medium pacer who proved his mettle as a dependable performance at the youth level, Khaleel Ahmed was looked upon as one of the upcoming and budding talents, tipped to become a vital cog in India's scheme of things for the future. The 21-year-old has been tried and tested in the national team against weaker opponents to give him the much-needed exposure, but the youngster is yet to make a mark. Despite boasting of a decent speed, the inconsistent line and length, and, often wayward accuracy has denied Khaleel's bowling the recognition it truly deserves. The ongoing Twenty20 International (T20I) series between India and Bangladesh is proving to be no different. © Reuters With key players, including frontline bowler Jasprit Bumrah, rested, Khaleel had a great opportunity to showcase his true bowling potential and impress the bigwigs in a bid to consolidate his position in the Indian team. But, sadly, it hasn't been quite the series, Khaleel or his fans would have expected. During the first T20I in Delhi, Khaleel was handed the responsibility of opening the bowling with Deepak Chahar for India. But, the Rajasthan cricketer emerged as the most expensive bowler amongst the two teams, conceding 37 runs and bagging just a wicket at an economy of 9.25 in his quota of four overs. While India's mediocre batting display took the focus away from Khaleel in Delhi, the left-arm seamer's ordinary bowling was once again in full display during the second T20I in Rajkot. Failing to learn from his mistakes, Khaleel was hammered all around the Vidarbha Cricket Association stadium by the Bangladeshi batsmen. © Twitter/@BCCI The Indian bowler conceded 44 runs and could only bag a solitary wicket at a staggering economy of 11 runs an over. Guilty of bowling a little too short on a pitch where the ball sat up nicely, Khaleel was welcomed into the attack with three consecutive boundaries at the hands of Mohammad Naim. Getting smashed for four boundaries in a row in his last over in Delhi, Khaleel, after bowling his first three deliveries at the VCA Stadium, had conceded seven consecutive fours. Khaleel Ahmed's last seven balls -- Delhi: 4â£4â£4â£4⣠(Mushfiqur Rahim) Rajkot: 4â£4â£4⣠(Mohammad Naim) ð https://t.co/Y2NQbPZ3hZ #INDvBAN — Cricbuzz (@cricbuzz) November 7, 2019 Having already conceded five boundaries in two overs, Khaleel, bowling short again, conceded another boundary on the very first delivery of his third over. He did get some respite after Rohit Sharma took Afif Hossain's catch on the third delivery, but Mahmudullah ensured he made the most of Khaleel's inexperience with two more boundaries in the over. In his final over, he conceded another four, giving away nine runs. While Team India managed to win the contest and level the series 1-1 on the back of a strong batting performance, Khaleel's forgettable outing with the willow drew a lot of flak from fans on social media. *Khaleel Ahmed gets smashed for 3 consecutive boundaries on his first three balls* Fans:#INDvBAN pic.twitter.com/uFX9Jz5kkH — Murdock (@_dramebaaz) November 7, 2019 Why Khaleel Ahmed , why???!! #INDvBAN #khaleel pic.twitter.com/IViGwiFG1P — Different ð Perspectiveð­ (@Iam_VaibhavGoel) November 7, 2019 Rohit Sharma to Khaleel Ahmed after every over. #INDvBAN pic.twitter.com/Jvmgoe5Qix — Smit Pujara (@smit_pujara) November 7, 2019 Khaleel Ahmed reminds that indians should do pooja to bumrah's statue three times per day at best.. — BrainFaden Smith (@brainfadesmith2) November 7, 2019 Bangladesh batsman in khaleel's over :#INDvBAN #IndvsBan pic.twitter.com/PeFlEFTmky — Kabira (@Farzi_Gulzar) November 7, 2019 Wicket column to khaleel ahmed :#INDvBAN pic.twitter.com/1tetv9LZPX — Marwadi (@gaitonde07) November 7, 2019 Khaleel Ahmed's performance#INDvBAN pic.twitter.com/lO5CmaHtz1 — Arun LoL (@dhaikilokatweet) November 3, 2019 when khaleel ahmed bowls a dot ball..

  6. Recently, PM Narendra Modi hosted a reception at his residence that was attended by the who's who of Bollywood. From Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez to Kangana Ranaut and Ekta Kapoor, almost every famous celebrity attended the 'Change Within' event, posted selfies and pictures from the party and thanked PM Modi for inviting them. View this post on Instagram Excellent interaction with leading film personalities and cultural icons. A post shared by Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) on Oct 19, 2019 at 9:48am PDT However, there's an interesting backstory that was shared by veteran singer SP Balasubrahmanyam on social media, where he low-key expressed how upset he was with PM Modi for being partial towards the Bollywood celebrities. Singer Balasubrahmanyam was also present at the same event, but he didn't post any pictures from there, nor any selfies with PM Modi. Why? Because his phone and that of a few other guests were taken away by the security personnel and they were given tokens for the same. So, how were the Bollywood celebrities allowed to carry their phones inside? That's exactly the point everyone is raising now. In his post on Facebook, he wrote "I am grateful to Ramoji Raoji, (Eenadu), because of whom I was able to attend a reception hosted by our Hon. Prime Minister at his home on the 29th of Oct. Upon entering the premises, we were asked to leave our cellphones with the security personnel and were given tokens for the same. But I was bewildered at the STARS taking selfies with the PM on that day. THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMMM????? (sic)" The 'Change Within' event was organised to promote the ideologies of Mahatma Gandhi.

  8. While India is going to experience the first phase of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the Modi government makes it a lot easier for people of the nation to decide whom to bring back in to power. © Twitter Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on the 27th of March that India shot down a live satellite in space, achieving a pertinent place in the global space power, while also displaying India's anti-satellite missile capability(ASAT). Obviously this action wasn't aimed against any country but it did determine the fact that India is now amongst the countries that are recognised as global space superpowers. © Twitter The PM took to addressing the nation on TV, radio and social media with a speech about the happenstance at noon on Wednesday, and said the following: "In the journey of every nation, there are moments that bring utmost pride and have a historic impact on generations to come. One such moment is today," 'Mission Shakti', as it's called, was a difficult target to achieve but it was completely successful within 3 minutes of the launch, the PM added. The idea was not to release the missile to violate any international laws and treaty and that the satellite was pre-determined target orbiting at an altitude of 300km. There were no other details divulged so we don't know who owned the satellite but there is assurance this wasn't a threat of any sort, to anyone. #MissionShakti is special for 2 reasons: (1) India is only the 4th country to acquire such a specialised & modern capability. (2) Entire effort is indigenous. India stands tall as a space power! It will make India stronger, even more secure and will further peace and harmony. — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) 27 March 2019 While the PM addresses the nation about the mission, it's actually the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) that is behind this project and they deserve all the credit that has gone into making this mission possible in the first place. The main aim behind the mission is to strengthen the country's overall security and with the success of this very mission, we have become the fourth country after US, Russia and China to acquire such specialised and modern technology. © DRDO "This is a fantastic capability to have and it gives us a deterrence in case our adversaries try to militarise the space or try to prevent us from using our existing space capabilities." said the former DRDO chief Dr VK Saraswat, in an interview with a news agency. #MissionShakti was a highly complex one, conducted at extremely high speed with remarkable precision. It shows the remarkable dexterity of India's outstanding scientists and the success of our space programme. — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) 27 March 2019 What Is 'Mission Shakti'? While we're happy at achieving such a technologically advanced feat, most of us might be a bit confused about what Mission Shakti entails exactly. Well, we're here to clear out any and every misunderstanding you may have. © Twitter Mission Shakti is primarily a mission that has a team of scientists, who successfully launched a missile at a satellite in low-earth orbit. The anti-satellite (ASAT)that was released into space, hit the mark and destroyed the existing satellite. The missile launched, completed the entire operation in about 3 minutes and it was created by DRDO entirely, for security purposes. . @DefenceMinIndia congratulates the scientists of @isro and @DRDO_India in developing and demonstrating ASAT capabilities. We are proud of you and wish you more glories in future.@PMOIndia @nsitharaman @DefenceMinIndia@PIB_India — Defence Spokesperson (@SpokespersonMoD) 27 March 2019 Former DRDO Chief & NITI Aayog member Dr VK Saraswat on anti-satellite weapon A-SAT: If today you want to have the deterrence capability that if adversaries, that means nation across the world, want to militarise the space, India has the technological capability to match them pic.twitter.com/4XcAp4iUDd — ANI (@ANI) 27 March 2019 What Are ASATs? ASATs are anti-satellite weapons that are specifically designed to destroy satellites during warfare, although they haven't been used during war yet and have only been demonstrated so far, to show force and power. Back in 2010, the then director-general and scientific advisor of DRDO, has said India has the capability to integrate ASATs to neutralise satellites in low-earth orbits. While speculations for developing ASATs to test them out have been ongoing since 2011, on 27th March 2019, the first one was tested to destroy a pre-determined target, making ASATs a success in Indian space technology. © Reuters Other countries with the same technology have already tested their ASATs in space. While US tested it back in 2008, by launching an ASAT to destroy its own satellite, which was decaying in orbit and they were successful in destroying it. China tested theirs in 2007 and had successfully destroyed a weather satellite using a SC-19 ASAT. The non-functional satellite was orbiting at an altitude 865 KM before it was destroyed. Lastly, Russia tested theirs in 2015 and again in 2016 and they have been successfully testing and launching ASAT missiles. While the DRDO chairman talks about DRDOs success by saying : "We have mastered anti-satellite capability and we have today shown that we can hit satellites at long ranges with a few centimeters accuracy," we acknowledge the great extent of work India has put in for the launch, we would also like to throw some light on why the mission is particularly special for space technology advancements in terms of security, for the country. Why Is Mission Shakti Special? There are numerous reasons why Mission Shakti has been given the importance it deserves. One of the prominent ones is that India is now amidst the league of superpowers who have the capability to ward off any threat from a spatial point of view. While China, Russia and the USA are pursuing anti-satellite weapons to a great extent, space has actually become a harsh concern to pursue and India's role in making counter-space capabilities critical by launching an ASAT, is quite significant. © Twitter Apart from Mission Shakti helping to strengthen defence technologies and safeguarding our space assets, the ASAT weapon will likely become an important tool for the armed forces, over the next few decades. Apart from the entire effort has been indigenous and it's a moment of pride to view a spectacular advancement in this generation. Here's hoping India's cohesively strategically work towards it's security continues with utmost honour and success.
  9. The casual fans of the Indian Premier League (IPL) may not be aware of the name, 'Nitish Rana' who enjoyed a supreme 68-run innings in Kolkata Knight Riders' season opening game against Bhuvneshwar Kumar's SunRisers Hyderabad on Sunday. However, the left-handed batsman has made quite a name for himself in the first-class cricket circuit and has come to be known as more of a game-winning player for his side much like the former skipper of the Indian cricket team in Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Rana, who hit eight boundaries and three maximums in a heroic run-chase by his KKR last evening, is a Delhi born athlete who made his first-class cricket debut during the 2015-16 season of the Ranji Trophy and ended up being the lead-scorer of the team (557). He also scored a total of 218 runs during the 2015-16 season of Vijay Hazare Trophy and was the second highest run-getter for Delhi. The 2015–16 season of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy has to be the highlight of the cricketer's career (until yesterday) during which he helped a struggling Delhi survive through tough games against Andhra, Baroda and Jharkhand whilst scoring a total of 299 runs in 8 innings at a staggering strike rate of 175.88. With an aggressive batting style and the ability to fill in the bowling lineup as a part-time off-spinner, Rana eventually made it to the roster of Team India A for the 2018-19 Deodar Trophy and the squad for last year's ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup. On Sunday, Rana contributed immensely towards Kolkata's successful 183-run chase while forming a decent partnership with Robin Uthappa (35) only for Andre Russell and Shubman Gill to seal the deal and bring a great start to his side. For his efforts, his fans took to Twitter to praise the 25-year-old: Nitish Rana showing positive character, prevailing his fantastic form , how prudently he hit reverse sweep to Rashid Khan.#KKRvSRH #KKRHaiTaiyaar — amey guthe (@amey_guthe) March 24, 2019 Russell you beauty ð¥ð¥ð¥ð¥ Nitish Rana ð¥ð¥ð¥ Subhman Gill ð¥ð¥ð¥ — A Quantum Dot (@aQuantumDot) March 24, 2019 Nitish Rana's cut shot is a thing of beauty.#KKRvSRH — Naresh Singaravelu (@NareshVelu) March 24, 2019 Nitish Rana On ð¥ Great batting.#IPL2019 #KKRvSRH — Prince ð®ð³á´°áµË¡Ê°á¶¦ á¶áµáµá¶¦áµáµË¡Ë¢ (@iPrince55) March 24, 2019 Nitish Rana >>> Rinku Singh End of debate.#KKRvSRH — Akshay Sharma (@akshaypasu) March 24, 2019
  10. Cricket, as a game, has evolved a lot over the period of time. Starting with sticking to the basics of both bowling and batting, to playing unconventional shots and differentiating the bowling speeds and styles, cricket is on a constant path of evolution. It is quite a sight indeed to witness players like David Warner and Kevin Pietersen, who can bat both right and left-handed. And to support that, a recent example could be of Warner, who is a conventional left-handed batsman, but batted right-handed for a few balls while playing Chris Gayle in the Bangladesh Premier League. © BCCI But now it looks like the switching part is not just restricted to batting. The bowling sensation of Vidarbha, Akshay Karnewar, showed his exemplary skills in the Irani trophy match, where he surprised both Umpire Nandan and the batsman, Ishan Kishan when he informed the umpire to bowl right handed off-spin. Already bagging the wicket of Shreyas Iyer by his conventional left-arm off-spin, Karnewar decided to welcome Kishan with a surprise by bowling a right-handed off-spin. However, he didn't stick to this for long and resumed bowling right-handed as both Kishan and Hanuma Vihari were unaffected by the change. Turns out this was not the first time the Satara lad had done something like this. Right from his junior cricket days, he has turned heads with his ability to bowl both left-arm spin and right-arm off-spin. Once, he even surprised 'The Hitman' Rohit Sharma, when both of them played for Indian Oil. Sharma even called Karnewar to the Indian team's net practice many years ago, where he managed to stun Sachin Tendulkar. © BCCI It all started in Pandharkawda in Maharashtra's Yavatmal district, where the 26-year-old was born to a bus driver. Karnewar initially started to bowl off-spin, but his coach Balu Naoghare suggested he give left-arm spin a try as well. “I was a right-arm off-spinner but used to throw with my left hand. One day, my coach asked if I could bowl left-arm spin. Initially, I struggled but after two years I became a left-arm spinner,” he recalls. Karnewar went on to represent Vidarbha as a left-arm spinner. Calling this skill his secret weapon, the ambidextrous bowler said that he uses this skill only when his team requires it the most. “I have bowled before too but this was probably the first time it came on television. Last year, I bowled during the one-dayers (Vijay Hazare Trophy) and got wickets from off-spin. Today, since Ishan Kishan is a left-hander and he likes to go after spinners, my captain Faiz Fazal said I should try off-spin. So I tried. When Hanuma Vihari came I bowled left-arm spin,” Karnewar told The Indian Express. With Karnewar starting a new trend, let's hope many other cricketers also show up with the ability to bowl from both hands.
  11. Keeping 'Sanju' out of this discussion, if there are two movies that have done extraordinarily well at the box-office and broken most records in recent years, it's Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmaavat' and S.S. Rajamouli's 'Baahubali: The Beginning' and 'Baahubali 2: The Conclusion'. While the former opened floodgates of controversy ever since the reports of its release started doing the rounds and gave us a magnanimity of Alauddin Khilji in Ranveer Singh, the latter gave us Prabhas who is probably now known as Baahubali and not by his real name. © arka media works However, had things worked the way Bhansali wanted, then people would have addressed Prabhas as both Baahubali and Maharawal Ratan Singh, the character that Shahid Kapoor played in 'Padmaavat'. Reportedly, after the insane success of 'Baahubali: The Beginning', Bhansali offered the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh to Prabhas in the movie that was then titled 'Padmavati'. Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh were signed for the role of the goddess queen Rani Padmavati and the cruel king Alauddin Khilji. Bhansali was so impressed with Prabhas' performance as Baahubali that he decided to cast his at the courageous Maharawal Ratan Singh. © viacom 18 motion pictures According to a report in Quint, Prabhas who was then working on 'Baahubali 2' was also open to work with Bhansali but once he heard the narration and the his role, he declined from being a past of Bhansali's ambitious project. Since Maharawal Ratan Singh did not have a 'meaty role', Prabhas felt that his 5 years long hard work and the image he built will lose its impact. In fact, he was looking for a character that was as strong as that of Deepika Padukone. Honestly, has Prabhas taken up the role, he could have fulfilled his dream of becoming a king. But, he declined the offer and the role went to Shahid Kapoor who did a brilliant job as the brave, fearless and courageous Rajput king. Source: The Quint

  21. It's hard to imagine that the funniest man in history had a far from happy childhood. An absent father and a life of poverty led him to begin working at a tender age of nine. But Charlie Chaplin had a happy soul and a genius mind. Not one to be bogged down by life's miseries, he turned pain into something more meaningful – laughter. The famous Tramp character that he created for his films catapulted his status to iconic in no time. And why not, the ability to laugh at oneself is just so rare in this world. We bring you 11 quotes by the comic genius that teach us not to take life too seriously. 1. Always look at life in long-shot. “Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.” © Thinkstock Photos/ MensXP_Disha Bhatia 2. It truly is. “In the end, everything is a gag.” © Thinkstock Photos/ MensXP_Disha Bhatia 3. Did you laugh today? “A day without laughing is a day wasted.” © Thinkstock Photos/ MensXP_Disha Bhatia 4. The ability to laugh at oneself is the greatest quality of all. “Failure is unimportant. It takes courage to make a fool of yourself.” © Thinkstock Photos/ MensXP_Disha Bhatia 5.

"That's all any of us are: amateurs. We don't live long enough to be anything else.” © Thinkstock Photos/ MensXP_Disha Bhatia 7. If the subject of your joke doesn't find it funny, your joke is not good enough. “My pain may be the reason for somebody's laugh. But my laugh must never be the reason for somebody's pain.” © Thinkstock Photos/ MensXP_Disha Bhatia 8.

While addressing the public in Bannu, Bilawal alleged that Imran had only taken u-turns and lied over the course of his political career. "If an annual festival of liars were to take place, Imran would be given the biggest crown," he said. Shifting the guns at Nawaz, the PPP chief said that the PML-N leader, who has called others puppets, is trying to find his puppeteer. He also criticised JUI-F Chief Rehman for opposing the merger of KP and FATA. "What enemity do you have with the people of FATA, Maulana Sahib?" Bilawal said. Bilawal, during his address, said that peace in Pakistan could not be established till the time Taliban are continued to be considered estranged brothers and stressed on 'one law for all.' "Be it Musharraf or ordinary terrorists, [accused persons] should be first arrested and then legal proceedings should be took up against them," he said. "Terrorism cannot be curbed if people go missing and target killing is rampant," he said. "Terrorism is neither an issue only linked to Naqeebullah Mehsud's murder nor a case of a target killer, it is the problem of the entire country." Highlighting his party's ties with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), Bilawal said that his party has had a long-standing relation with the province. He further said that it was PPP founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto who had announced to demolish the Frontier Crimes Regulation (FCR)from Malakand Division during his speech there. He added the brave people of KP have been fighting for a long time as the valley of fragrance has been turned into one of blood. To solve the issues of KP a court is needed that could impart justice, the PPP chairperson said. ?We need a police force that people could trust and institutes that ensure rule of law,? he added. ?I trust our police be it of KP, Punjab, Balochistan or Sindh as they all have made sacrifices and fought terrorists with valour.? Bilawal said police was the country?s frontline, which ought to be strengthened on the whole as every street cannot have a soldier deployed. Speaking about war against terrorism, Bilawal said it was his party that brought together the entire Parliament and united people for the sake of sustainable peace in Swat that was taken over by terrorists soon after Benazir Bhutto?s martyrdom. The PPP chairperson also claimed of repatriating the nearly 2.5 million internally displaced persons to their native areas within three months. Bilawal said that the time had come to show the province's ruling party that the public had seen its real face. He stressed that the public was not concerned about why political leaders were disqualified from public office. The PPP chief was referring to PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif's questions about his disqualification following the July 28 Panama verdict by the Supreme Court. "The people just want their problems to be solved. The people just want roti (food), kapra (clothing), and makan (shelter)," Bilawal said. Bilawal is flanked by other party leaders such as Anwar Saifullah Khan, Sher Azam Wazir, Humayun Khan, Senator Rubina Khalid and Faisal Kundi. Party supporters from different areas have come to Bannu to attend the rally and show their support for their leader. As many as 400 police officers were deployed for security purposes. On March 18, Bilawal had questioned former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's slogan of 'respecting the vote'. Nawaz, who was disqualified as premier and head of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz by the Supreme Court in separate cases, has been raising the slogan of respecting the vote. Bilawal Bhutto criticises Nawaz Sharif's 'respect the vote' slogan PPP chairman addresses party workers in Kotli Sattian Tehsil of Rawalpindi Addressing party supporters in Kotli Sattian, the PPP chairman recalled the relationship of the tehsil with the party. "Nawaz thinks democracy linked to him only," he said, terming the former prime minister Gen (retd) Ziaul Haq's "opening batsmen". In an apparent jibe at Nawaz's daughter Maryam, Bilawal said: "look now, we have stopped you". Referring to Nawaz's recent tirade against the opposition parties, Bilawal said the PML-N leader, and not the PPP leader, is the biggest wound up toy, whose key is broken at present.
  23. The makers of India's most loved comedy show are back again with your favorite show 'Khichdi' and we just can't tell you how excited we are. After bringing the classic show 'Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai' back as the web show, JD Majethia is back with another famous family that would easily tickle our funny bone. Well, every kid born in the 90's have grown watching 'Khichdi' and we totally get how excited this news might have made you. (c) BCCL We were among the first to tell you that the show is making a comeback and today we are finally here with the much-awaited promo. JD tweeted the show's trailer saying that all our favourite characters are making a comeback. In fact last night we also came across a small teaser. The most awaited family comedy show 'Khichdi', all set to be back after 12 years. Official promo breaking tomorrow only on STAR Plus #khichdi @starplus A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Mar 23, 2018 at 7:46am PDT Majethia plays Himanshu and is totally killing it in the promo. The story picks from exactly where it ended, which means everyone is behind Babuji (Anang Desai) who is still fed up of his insane family. In fact, every time he is pissed off, it means we are having a perfectly entertaining day. You see Praful (Rajeev Mehta) doing exactly what he shouldn't be doing and the innocent Hansa (Supriya Pathak) supporting her husband as always. Yeah, the duo is totally weird but we still love them. (c) HattsOff Productions The kids are all grown up and we have our favourite Jayshree (Vandana Pathak) trying to handle everything. For those of you don't know 'Khichdi', it is a fun show based on an eccentric Gujarati family who are seen doing every absurd thing imaginable that will make you laugh your lungs out. The show made its debut in 2002 and was on the air for almost 2 years. It was one of the most watched family shows during the time. (c) HattsOff Productions The fame of the show was so huge that later, it was even converted into a movie that performed pretty well in the box office. The show is all set to come back after a long gap of 12 years and will air from April 14, 2018. The show will air on Star Plus and Hotstar and we are going bonkers. (c) HattsOff Productions Check out the promo here: Bhaisaaab! Kissi ko pata nahi chalega!
  24. Time and again I have reiterated that 'cricket is not a sport in India, it is a religion.' And the religious followers of this religion are now gearing up to welcome this year's biggest festival on April 7. Yes, we are talking about the much-awaited, eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League aka IPL. Twitter However, it seems this year, the players are stressing on their off-field skills more than their on-pitch performance. Well, we are not complaining. We actually love this new side of the players. Team Mumbai Indians has already peaked our excitement with their kickass Twitter banter and crazier emojis. Recently, we also witnessed MS Dhoni finish a game of pool as efficiently as cricket. When their 'Captain Cool' is leaving his fans stunned with his cool moves, how can the team stay behind? Instagram Ahead of the IPL fever, Chennai Super Kings seem to be so confident about their performance, that it looks like they have already started mastering their victory dance. If you are already stalking the social media accounts of CSK, then you will have already seen the video we're talking about. But, for those of you who are too busy, we're here to help you. If you thought that DJ Bravo doing his 'Champion' move is the best thing, wait till you watch him tap his inner Punjabi and do the bhangra on the streets with Harbhajjan Singh, Ravindra Jadeja and other players. This video is possibly one of the best introductions by any team so far and definitely a kickass way to welcome the IPL 2018 season. Champions are Back ! ðð A post shared by mahi7781 ðµ (@bleed.dhonism) on Mar 22, 2018 at 9:35pm PDT Since the team is making a comeback into the IPL scene after 2 years, we're hopeful that they put up a good show and make this practice turn into a real dance.
  25. If you've been living under a rock, you may have missed one of the biggest cultural phenomena in the gaming world and the Internet alike. The game Fortnite has taken over the world and has acquired players at a pace that has not been matched by any other game in recent memory. When the game's gameplay was first revealed, it was assumed to be a rip-off of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (Better known as PUBG). However, Epic Games has made a huge impact regardless. © Epic Games The game has been growing at an exponential rate and with the recent release of the game on iOS, the game is going to get even more players than one expected. The game's phenomenon can only be compared to Pokemon Go when it was first released in 2016 and we feel it has surpassed Nintendo's offering just this last month. Fortnite is not just another ordinary game that is trending on the internet; in fact, it's so popular that even Drake started playing the game with streamer Ninja last week. There are many reasons for Fortnite's overnight success and we want to know what led to its sudden rise and dominance. It Looks Better Whether you want to accept it or not, the game is more visually appealing than any other Battle Royale game that has ever released. In fact, it has an arcade-ish feel to its characters and somewhat resembles an animated character from a Disney movie. © Epic Games Due to the wacky nature of characters, players can wildly customise their avatars with skins and accessories that are not available in other games. The game also has a unique feature that takes the gameplay to the next level. Players have to build a base around themselves in order to protect themselves from enemies which makes the game a lot more fun as compared to its closest competitor PUBG. It's Free To Play Gamers are sceptical when they see a free-to-play game and so was I when I first started to download the game. What's cool is that the game has no hidden fees and the developers will not charge you in the future. The game makes money from a system they call “Battle Pass. Every player gets access to the basic Battle Pass level where you can complete challenges to acquire cosmetic upgrades for your character and customise the glider. © Epic Games Players can buy a premium Battle Pass which gets regularly updated with challenges that unlock premium upgrades for their characters. These upgrades do not give any advantage to players over others in gameplay and are strictly meant for cosmetic purposes. The game is all about whether you want your character to look cool or not. It's the first time gamers do not hate micro-transactions in a game and don't mind paying for said upgrades. It's Available Everywhere No matter which platform you choose to play on (Except the Nintendo Switch), the game is available on every other major platform. The game is available on PC, Playstation 4, Xbox One and now iOS. What's cool is that the game supports cross-platform play and makes the game even more enjoyable when you compete with players from other platforms. Having said that, the game does not have cross-platform play between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at the moment, but it hardly makes a difference to users who want to play. It's The Most Streamed Game On Twitch © Epic Games Fortnite is extremely popular on Twitch and is the number 1 game that is streamed most on the platform. The game has even allowed streamers like Ninja to earn over $500,000 a month in Twitch subscriptions which is not a small feat on its own. I don't watch Twitch streams that often but whenever I do, I always find myself looking for the best Fortnite stream available. It's a lot of fun watching top-tier players do what they do in streams and is a good source to learn tactics and strategies that you can transfer to your own gameplay. There is no doubt that Twitch has contributed a lot towards Fortnite's success and we don't see it slowing down anytime soon. It's A Shooter That's More Accessible Coming back to the aesthetics of the game, it is more accessible to players of all ages as it does not appear as violent as other multiplayer games. The animated nature of the graphics makes it extremely popular with kids and the goofy nature of its weapons makes it more acceptable by concerned parents. © Epic Games So if you haven't tried “Fortnite Battle Royale” yet, we suggest you give it a go on your preferred platform. It doesn't cost anything and is now available to play on PC, PS4, Xbox One and iOS. We promise you will be hooked as soon as you start playing the game.
