  1. Amid the Coronavirus outbreak and the lockdown extension, all we need to do is stay at home to fight against the deadly virus. The Coronavirus has infected over 12,000 people and have claimed the lives of around 415 people so far. The concept of staying at home is the only brainchild behind flattening the curve of the Coronavirus outbreak. Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi shared an informative video wherein a group of kids explains the importance of staying indoors by using the domino effect method. Checkout the video here- बà¤à¥à¤à¥à¤ नॠà¤à¥à¤²-à¤à¥à¤² मà¥à¤ à¤à¥ बता दिया, à¤à¤¸à¤®à¥à¤ à¤à¥à¤°à¥à¤¨à¤¾ महामारॠसॠबà¤à¤¨à¥ à¤à¥ à¤à¤ बड़ॠसà¥à¤ हà¥à¥¤ pic.twitter.com/n13Z92zi2W â Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) April 16, 2020 PM Modi took to his Twitter saying in Hindi, âThe kids taught a very important life lesson while playing.â In the video, a kid explains how the virus spreads using bricks. Placed in a spiral, the bricks show the domino effect as one brick makes all others fall along with it. While in the second attempt, when one kid removes a brick from the spiral the whole cycle is disturbed and the domino effect isnât completed. © BCCL This explains how the spreading of the deadly virus that is rapidly increasing, can be contained with proper measures. The video has already garnered over 346.5K views and 16K re-tweets on Twitter. Hereâs what people have to say about the simple yet interesting video shared by PM Modi- â Shreya Roy (@shreyasakshiroy) April 16, 2020Bikul sahmat hu â Abhinandan Mishra (@Abhinan02820078) April 16, 2020Right sir , Great lesson they had taught. â Preeti Yadav (@drpreetiyadav9) April 16, 2020@RahulGandhi This is to tell you importance of Lock Down.

It is necessary that people stay at home and respect the governmentâs decision of the lockdown extension as this is the only way to contain the virus. © BCCL We hope more and more people view this video and understand the grave situation that the whole world is in. Just stay at home. Please! View the full article
  2. There are kids, and then there are pure geniuses like 8-year-old Niall Thogulava from Chennai. Remember the time when cartoon shows, playing with friends 5 hours a day and coming home at the end of a school day used to be our biggest points of interest? Well, Niall is an example of how the generations, since ours, have evolved. This child prodigy from Southern India has portrayed exceptional talents when it comes to reading, writing and speaking hundreds of languages from around the world. Niall is an inspiring polyglot who can read and write as many as 106 languages! *WOAH* © NDTV How did he do it in such a short time of being around? Well, blame it on the internet (just like this year's CBSE 12th topper). Niall took the help of the internet, especially YouTube, to learn all the languages he has mastered today. As per an ANI report, Niall also knows the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), which allows one to transcribe the sound of any spoken language in order to ascertain its pronunciation. Niall told ANI, "I do not know how my interest in languages began. I can read and write over 106 languages and can fluently speak 10 languages. I am currently learning five new languages." © ANI Niall's father, Shankar Narayanan, is a proud man when he says, "Last year, he started developing an interest for new languages and from there he took a great leap. Making use of the internet, he started learning one language after another." Niall is proof that if you set your heart on something, and work hard to see it through, anything is possible and age is no bar for it.
  3. While you may assume 'Game of Thrones' is only about death and war, you're definitely forgetting the most basic nuance that binds the show together- love. Subtle and fierce underlines of transparent and opaque love have been ruling the premise of the series since season 1 and many of us, if not connected or related to it have definitely been drawn towards the enigmatic relationships the characters have shared amongst them. (HBO) For instance GoT has gone crucially transparent in displaying Ygritte's love for Jon with her popular dialogue "I am yours and you are mine. If we die, we die but first let's live", telling us that love still strives within uncertainties and the harshest of situations. In the same breath, the subtle dynamic between Grey Worm and Missandei has an involuntary opposed view, as none of them really come forward with what they feel for the other, even though they do indulge in intimacy. (c)HBO 'Game of Thrones', besides war and triumph, has given us immense lessons in love, which some of us may have overlooked in time. But if you really think about it, these lessons are lifelong and altering enough to pay some amount of heed towards them. Here are 5 crucial yet controversial things about love Game of Thrones taught us. (1) You Can't Help Who You Fall In Love With That's the beastly truth about life and it's all over the GoT narrative too. For instance, Cersei and Jaime's intense love affair is an indignant proposition for others who know of it, because the two are siblings. But Jaime's heart bleeds for Cersie, even though he knows her actions aren't just. In the same lieu, Tyrion's love for the brothel worker Shae, who betrayed him even though he wanted to protect her. (c)HBO We really can't help who we fall in love with because love is the most definite and uncontrollable emotion we have amidst us. We can reap from the consequences or we can regret everything we've felt but controlling it is not in our hands and that is something GoT stresses on time and again, with multiple equations indulging in daring love. (c)HBO (2) Unrequited Love Is Painful Yes, we all know one-sided or unrequited love is very painful. It's worse when it doesn't just go away and becomes a lifelong baggage to deal with. Most of us have been there but maybe because we're so blinded with the theory of love, we seldom forget what it does to us. GoT has officially made us realise the repercussions of unrequited love and they aren't very pleasant. (c)HBO Don't get me wrong, most of it is beautiful. To be in love with just one person and feel so strongly for someone is beautiful at its own cost. Like how Jorah Mormont was in love with his Khaleesi for eternity. But sometimes obsessive and tainted love breeds toxicity, just like how Littlefinger's love did for Catelyn Stark. He may have loved her all his life but because he couldn't have her he ruined families and destroyed lives, as subtly as he could. But unrequited love is a powerful thing and GoT certainly teaches us that. (c)HBO (3) True Love Does Exist If you've turned cynical about love from one bad relationship, then you weren't really in love. Because true love, even if it doesn't work out, remains as the most special endeavour you've been through because it's a journey no one else can experience for you. So, if you're heartbroken and have turned against love, maybe true love is yet to hit you. That's the relationship that Ned Stark shared with his wife Catelyn Stark tells us, to a great extent. They loved each other immensely, respected each other's wishes and desires and honoured each other tremendously. If that isn't true love, we're not sure what is. (c)HBO (4) You Don't Fall In Love Just Once While love is a unique feeling, it doesn't occur just once. If you've been in love with one person and are spending your life with them, then that's a different thing altogether. But if you've been in love before and have drastically come out of it, there are chances of falling back in to it, with someone else and there isn't a hard and fast rule about it. (c)HBO (c)HBO It's true when we think of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. Both were in love with different people and both lost them in some form of battle, and yet, they came together and fell in love with each other, years later. So, if you're going through a heartbreak and think you'll never fall in love again, think again! (c)HBO (5) *** Doesn't Govern Love While *** is important in a relationship or in true sanctimonious love, 'Game of Thrones' teaches us that it's not the most important factor ruling how you feel for someone. It shouldn't be positioned that way, to say the least. *** might be enjoyable and something to look forward to but when an unsullied man and a woman of importance fall in love, *** has nothing to do with it. (c)HBO When Missandei decided to give Grey Worm English speaking lessons, she had no idea what was in store for them. Her assumption of the fact that he's an unsullied soldier without a ***** will never let him see her in the way she probably wants to be seen. But even so, Grey Worm stares at her naked body when she's taking a bath and eventually they get intimately attached, even though they can't have ***. This tells us that all relationships start with a purity that can't be defined or be adulterated by assumptions and expectations and even with the lack of ***, it's still mighty beautiful and meaningful. 'Game of Thrones', even though set a million years ago, has definitely thought us a lot about modern day love. A will to stay and make a relationship work, the will to deal with one-sided love and the will to stay strong with the wrong kind of love and every time we delve deeper in to the projection of each relation, we realise it truly reflects what society has become today. So, take a minute and think about these 5 essential things, that will help you when you do decide to understand what love really is.
  4. If you're ever feeling down and out in life, just go over to Akshay Kumar's Instagram page and you'll get a whole lotta determination, inspiration and motivation, all folded in to one. The actor does such inspirational things, it gives us hope that the world can definitely be a better place. © Pinterest Just recently, along with Aditya Thakeray, he participated in a training session to teach young girls basic self-defence techniques, in Thane Mumbai. His social media was abuzz with a video of him training the girls, so they can protect themselves in the most basic way possible. © Instagram The video he shared on his Instagram page was captioned: Happy to see a turnout of 2000 plus girls from nearby schools at our self defense training camp in Thane today. The workshop was to teach them some basic self defense techniques. Hoping it was helpful and to see more of them at our training centre. Happy to see a turnout of 2000 plus girls from nearby schools at our self defense training camp in Thane today. The workshop was to teach them some basic self defense techniques. Hoping it was helpful and to see more of them at our training centre. @adityathackeray A post shared by Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) on Feb 20, 2019 at 4:02am PST Dressed in black, Kumar displayed a lot of patience and skilful knowledge about the basics of martial arts. He believes it's important for young girls to know the fundamentals, just in case they face something uncomfortable, ever in life. © Pinterest Akshay has had formal training in Thai Boxing and Muay Thai when he spent over 5 years learning these forms of martial arts in Thailand and now he wishes to impart his knowledge of martial arts for training purposes. This isn't the first time we're seeing the man in his utmost noble best. He's known to bring issues of menstrual hygiene to the forefront with his film 'Padman' and has also joined hands with an organisation to aid a running event to raise awareness for menstrual hygiene. © Zee Studios On the work front, his film 'Kesari', based on the battle of Saragarhi in 1897 will release in March this year and we're really waiting with bated breath to watch him in one of the finest roles he's ever played.
  5. What would you do if you had the chance to interact with one of the world's most richest man that there is? Coming across such an opportunity would give us the power to shower them with some of our most eager questions! So, finally, when the opportunity presents itself, we will surely have the most superb (read eccentric) queries to pose to our heroes. © Reuters The world knows him as the face of Microsoft, or as the possessor of the former 'World's Richest Man' title. We are talking about Bill Gates, and the man is currently second only to Amazon's Jeff Bezos in terms of their riches. Gates holds the second rank on the list of world's richest men, and he is currently worth $90 billions as per Forbes' 'World Billionaires 2018' list. World's richest or not, generations of young students, entrepreneurs and professionals have been inspired by Gates' vision and achievements. Millions of people around the globe look up to him for the inspiration that he is. Similarly, Gates never disappoints his admirers and tries to interact with them as often as possible. © Reuters During his last interaction,Gates participated in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on social networking site Reddit. While numerous questions were posed by eager participants, the response to UncomfortableChuckle's question has shed new light on Bill Gates beliefs and ideologies. UncomfortableChuckle asked Bill Gates, “If you could give 19-year-old Bill Gates some advice, what would it be?” and Gates' response has been nothing less than a revelation. One read, and we realise that such clarity of thought and depth in perception only comes from experiencing life and being at the very top of the financial ladder. © Reuters Yet, every word that left Gates' mouth in response to the question are such gems, that we cannot help but admit that no school in the world would ever want us to learn about it. However, Gates swears by it and we can totally understand why. Here's the advice Bill Gates would like to give his younger self, that we can relate to as well: “I would explain that smartness is not single dimensional and not quite as important as I thought it was back then. I would say you might explore the developing world before you get into your forties. I wasn't very good socially back then, but I am not sure there is advice that would fix that — maybe I had to be awkward and just grow up?” © Reuters Allow us to break it down for your better understanding. There seem to be three very significant things that Gates is talking about, and here is exactly what you need to know about the life-altering advice: 1. Unlike What School Tries To Tell You, Being Smart Isn't Everything What Gates seems to be saying at the very onset is that smartness comes in many shapes and sizes, and it isn't the only prerogative that promises success. On the other hand, Bill Gates is actually suggesting that one must keep the curiosity alive and never stop gaining more knowledge. 2. Travel Should Top Your To-Do List Bill Gates then suggests that exploring the world while one is still young and able should turn into a priority. Travelling around the world and exploring new places and cultures allows a person to become more perceptive and aware, which helps them gain personal and professional insights. © Reuters One such exploration in South Africa changed Bill Gates and his wife's perception when they witnessed what extreme poverty and diseases looked it. Gates called the experience “phenomenal” and the couple later went on to establish the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to fight poverty and hunger around the world. 3. Being Shy Doesn't Make You 'Weird' The last thing Gates pointed out was that being shy isn't as weird as people suggest it to be. One should be okay with how they are, shy or not, and make the most of their strengths. Surely you remember how our teachers told the shy kids in the class to “speak up more often”, “participate more often” and the likes. All of this makes complete sense. The man gets the things our school hardly ever understood.
  6. As menswear designers — the ones holding fashion by its very neck — there's a lot to dig one's hands into (design, sales, retail: it's a mad, mad world). That said, if there's anything that's a real constant in their lives, it's their creative aesthetic and the rules they live by. Nothing, we mean nothing, can deter that foundation for them. But enter their fathers — their pillars of strength, who in some way or the other have played a major role in becoming what they are today. Because really, these artistic minds may be style mavericks themselves, but let's not forget: papa too taught them a thing or two. On Father's Day today, seven of India's most prolific menswear designers reveal the style lessons their daddy (let's add 'dearest' for emotions) taught them, while laying the foundation of what they are today. 1. Dhruv Kapoor © Strand Of Silk "I may not swear by it, but my father taught me the power of dressing down. Just a half-sleeved collared shirt and tailored trousers are all you need. Less is more!" 2. Raghavendra Rathore © Instagram/Raghavendra Rathore "Well, the most important lesson in fashion — the value of time. It's a vital and supremely perishable resource of our lives." 3. Gaurav Khanijo © MensXP "Pretty much everything: colour balance, colour blocking, colour play. To be frank, the reason why I love colours is because I've grown up see him play with them with absolute ease. From pinks, reds, animal prints, florals — he has them all in his wardrobe." 4. Abhishek Paatni © MensXP "Papa taught me how to ace the windsor knot and the trick to styling a neck scarf with the most baller (and wet) mop." 5. Sahil Aneja © Sahil Aneja "The basis of my personal style is all him. I used to ogle at his chinos, plaid shirts and always dreamed of wearing them once I grow up!" 6. Dhruv Vaish © Dhruv Vaish "Whenever my father stepped out for a casual 'do, he would hop a casual blazer over a classic polo T-shirt. The combo looked terrific!" 7. Shivan and Narresh © Sagar Ahuja/Shivan and Narresh Shivan Bhatiya: "My father has a very simple and clean outlook towards fashion. His love for finding supremacy in simplicity is reflective in my casual personal style today." Narresh Kukreja: "My destiny in fashion is purely because of him. He paved the way for my career in design and fashion (he took the decision for me) and today, I only have him to thank; for seeing this in me way ahead in time. I'm still trying to fit into his shoes!"
  7. When it comes to Indian parents, no amount of drama is too much. While every family sees its fair share of arguments and fights, there's something about Indian households that makes everything lighter. The struggle to survive and get by in life is so strong, fights often assume comic proportions. If you've ever played messenger between your parents, you know the deal. Here's to the many nights of lauki you've had to endure when mom has been in a bad mood. We list out some twisted tips about relationships we have managed to learn from our bickering parents. 1. If you have had a quarrel, be rest assured there will be lauki for dinner. 2. When the wife is angry, she'll clean the television when you are watching IPL. 3. Whoever controls the TV remote has the upper hand in marriage. 4. In case of a cold war, scold the kids. What are kids for, after all? 5. Use them as messengers. 6. Bitching about padosis is the ultimate couple bonding exercise. 7. You can't criticize your wife's cooking in front of guests, especially her in-laws. 8. The maid is more important than the man of the house. 9. If the couple's favourite shows are scheduled at the same time, you get a new TV. 10. The person who makes morning tea spends the day like a king. 11. When cold wars stretch for weeks but you have to function normally, you get passive aggressive. 12.One parent has to be the tough taskmaster, and the other will just blame all hard decisions on them. It always works.
  8. Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson needs no introduction. Especially if you grew up in the late 90s, it's almost a guarantee that you've heard his catchphrase- 'Can you smell what The Rock is cooking'. If not in the ring, you must have seen him in a ton of movies as well. He credits his success to nothing but his hard work and the love of his fans. Everything this man does actually becomes a lesson to be learned. So, let's take a look at what the Rock taught us in 2017. 1) Never Miss Your Workout. NEVER! © Instagram If you follow him on social media, you'll see just how hectic his schedule is. Traveling the world, shooting movies, attending premieres and award shows, he still never misses his training sessions. Even if it's at 3 am, best believe that he will show up. In the same way, you should always attack any challenge with fearlessness, do not let time constraints or any other excuse come between you and your goal. If you have a goal, work hard for it. 2) Determination Can Take You Places. Excuses Won't © Instagram 'In 1995 I had $7 bucks in my pocket and knew two things: I'm broke as hell and one day I won't be.' When Dwayne Johnson was 23, a failed football career led him to follow his father's footsteps in pro wrestling. But while his lineage might have helped him towards the path to the top, he was never given any handouts in his career. It was through his sheer determination and focus he was able to achieve stardom. Once you have that focus and determination in whatever you're doing from the beginning, the only thing stopping you from getting it…is yourself. 3) Consistency Breeds Greatness © Instagram Greatness is all about consistency and consistency breeds greatness. Motivation will get you through a day or a week but in order to keep improving at whatever you are trying to do, consistency is the key. Consistency is getting back up every time you fall and keep persisting. Nothing's going to be given to you in this life. 4) Take Risks. Opportunities Don't Come By Just Like That. © Instagram Life is full of opportunities to climb up the ladder and get better, but it's just all a matter of seizing that moment and taking control. Look at The Rock, he took every opportunity presented to him; be it wrestling or acting and smashed it. Look, the biggest regrets are the chances you never take. Kick that door open and make grab whatever opportunity you can by the throat. 5) Self Belief © Instagram When it comes down to it, you should believe in yourself so damn much that you'll fight for what you believe in. That means kicking ass, taking names and making sure everyone remembers what you're there for. Of course, that means you should be able to walk the walk too, but make sure your intentions are clear to yourself and everyone else around you. "The road to success and greatness is always paved with consistent hard work. Outwork your competitors, be authentic and above all else chase your greatness."

  9. It's hard to imagine what goes through Salman Khan's mind. Multiple theories cite he's crazy, some say he's very kind (and compassionate) while a few also lean towards his life as a criminal. However, we don't have any f-cks to give to that kinda jazz here. For us, Mr. Khan is a tailored marvel, for whom, wearing a suit is a left hand business. On most occasions, he's either in a classic, solid coloured two/three piece or in just very casual gear. He's a polarising dresser and that's Salman for us. Having said that, with his recent outfit for the launch of ‘Bigg Boss 11', he whipped up a resplendent show of iridescent threads. © Viral Bhayani There's a lot that's different from the staple Salman dressing here. The separates of his suit are of three different colours, there's a knockout suit blazer for the first time ever and thirdly, his pocket square is standing out (rather than blending in). For a man who sticks to his gut (ergo playing it really safe), this is completely absurd. Lucky for us, that doesn't mean anything unfortunate. In fact, there are three big style lessons that Salman is gracing us with here... © Viral Bhayani 1) While turning to distinct pieces in one single suit, maintain a palette. We're not saying you can't have blacks/greys and blues in there, but like on Salman's suit here, lighten or darken one colour to create contrast. You'll appear colour-balanced in conclusion. 2) There's a big difference between slim, skinny and roomy fits. But a combination of all is a 'perfect' fit. Clearly, there's no denying that Mr. Khan is extremely comfortable in those trousers. Plus, they look impeccably slipped into. © Viral Bhayani 3) However formal the occasion could be, there's no harm in lightening things up a bit. Elements like the printed pocket square, light-hued suit blazer and badass lapels are working like magic for the legendary star. Yet, he's not looking casually dressed at all. Problem solved and ante upped. Thank you so very much for these style lessons, Mr. Khan. Alternatively, we look forward to the glorious nuisance on your reality show.
  10. No one questions the perfection behind Leonardo's immense talent house of acting that bowls everyone every single time. Even the Oscars agree with this now! However, when you are an actor of this calibre, you carry a responsibility to bring the character to life with all justice. If you watched him nail the character of Jordan Belfort in ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street' then this fancy back story will peak your interest. © Paramount Pictures Remember those scenes that involved Leo taking drugs and acting like some insane shit got embedded in his blood? Especially that one long scene of dazed driving, where he isn't even able to get off the floor? © Paramount pictures So it turns out that the real life ‘wolf of wall street', Jordan Belfort actually gave him tips and lessons on how to act high on drugs while filming the famous movie. In an interview, he explained the process of rehearsing. "I showed him what it looks and feel like when you are high on Quaalude. We were both on the floor, drooling. His father walked into the room and asked us what the f*ck we were doing." Leonardo apparently even had all of it taped on video to rehearse in person and called them ‘lost Jordan tapes”. © Twitter Leonardo and Jonah Hills snorted vitamin powders and it turned out that Hills ended up in the hospital due to an overdose of those vitamin powders! © Paramount pictures The movie was a major hit and till date is considered as one of the finest performances by Leonardo.
  11. We all remember Maxim Gorky, Rabindranath Tagore, Ernest Hemingway, James Watt, Thomas Alva Edison, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Wright Brothers as some of the few people who left their mark in the world but do you also know that all of them were partially or wholly self-taught. They did not rely completely on the education that school had to offer. These kinds of people are called autodidacts. Here is a list of such people, try and see how many you already know. It was very beautifully penned down by the American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, Mark Twain as “I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.” Here are some proven techniques and effects which can radically change the way you learn things. 1. The Pomodoro Technique: © Fractus Learning A technique developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980's to help you focus your attention over a short period of time. Pomodoro is an Italian word for tomato and is called so because Francesco used a tomato-shaped timer while practising this technique. Traditionally, the timer is set to 25 minutes, but you may vary it slightly according to your needs. Now, once the timer starts ticking, you are not allowed to sneak off to web surf or chat on the phone. So, the thought is, for those 25 minutes you need to focus on the process and not on the product. You will be tempted by distractions but you will be pleased with how easy it is to get your attention back. 2. The Feynman Technique: © Ace Tutors The Feynman technique has been named after Richard Feynman, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist. This technique demands people come up with a simple metaphor or analogy to help them grasp the essence of an idea. You may relate to it if you try to remember that you learned a concept better when you taught it to someone else. You can use the Feynman technique to understand the ideas that you do not really get or to remember those which you understand but forget on the day of the test. Follow these steps: Choose a topic Try to pretend that you are teaching this idea to a new student. When you get stuck at some point, go back to your reference material. Simplify the language and concept and create analogies to grasp the concept better. 3. The Memory Palace Technique: Remember Benedict Cumberbatch in 'Sherlock Holmes' using the mind palace technique to capture and trace a lot of information in his head? This technique basically involves calling to mind a familiar place like the layout of your workplace which you can use as a visual notepad where you can deposit concept images that you want to remember. You can use it to remember a long list. For example, sin cos and tan theta formulas can be remembered as “some people have curly brown hair through proper brushing” to remember that sin theta is equal to perpendicular upon hypotenuse and respectively for cos and tan theta. It can still be difficult to remember this but it becomes much easier if you also add the memory palace to it. Like, Some people like Rahul have curly...You get the idea. 4. The Hard-Start-Jump-To-Easy-Technique: © SuperThinking Students are often advised to start with an easy question so that they do not get demotivated at the starting phase of the test, but this is not the best practice. Instead, start with a difficult problem and if you get stuck, quickly switch to the easier once. Then get back to the difficult problem again. Now, this switch activates your diffuse and focused modes which are very important to solve the most difficult problems in your test sheet. 5. The Einstellung Effect: © Central Coffee It is a kind of mindset which restricts us to a repeated use of tried and true strategies to solve any problem, even though a simpler strategical solution exists. Now, if you observe this carefully, it is a big problem. It makes you look like a zombie and you tend to develop a mechanical state of mind. You lose creativity while solving the problem with a different technique. You can still mitigate its effect by following these steps: Remind yourself of the effect to be consciously aware. Enter your boketto mode. Try gazing at the sky without thinking anything. It gives your mind a break. Adopt a beginner's mindset. 6. The Testing Effect: © OpenPSYC This technique helps in improving long-term memory, often with the help of retrieving information that you once learned. This improvement in knowledge because of test taking is known as the testing effect. Testing basically strengthens and stabilises the related neural patterns in your brain and you can practice it using flash cards and by getting feedback from others. So, the next time you learn a topic and if you don't get it at once, try remembering the main points you have learned and then get back to the revision process. The same goes when you leave a problem half solved, thinking you know the complete solution when you actually don't. To strengthen your neural patterns you must take enough tests on a regular ibasis. Now, according to the Law of Serendipity: Lady luck favours the one who tries. So, start practising some of these techniques to overcome many of the problems you face while learning a new subject.
  12. Dwayne ‘The Rock' Johnson has had a long journey. From struggling to get into his college football team to winning 17 wrestling championships to becoming one of the most loved Hollywood stars, The Rock has come a long way. The man works out like a beast and has never shied away from hard work. © Instagram/The Rock In a moving post on Instagram, The Rock shared how his father taught him an unforgettable lesson in life – one that made him the man he is today. He revealed how his father pushed him to strive harder in life, to give his everything to a task at hand. To sweat it out even if it meant getting his ass whipped. He says: “Leaving it all...means you give every f*cking ounce of effort you can, to give the best performance you can give. Whatever it is you do, whatever job you have.. at the end of the day, leave it all there.” Leave it all on the set. Back when I was a punk kid my dad would take me to the gym on weekends and kick the shit outta me in the weight room and on the wrestling mats. He'd say you didn't get up early to come here and give half ass effort. Leave it all in the gym. Years later when I played ball at The U, we applied the same principles: we left it all on the field. When I became a pro wrestler, that was part of my nightly pre match prayer. Asked for the strength to leave it all in ring - whether I was wrestling in flea markets or sold out stadiums. Leaving it all...means you give every f*cking ounce of effort you can, to give the best performance you can give. Whatever it is you do, whatever job you have.. at the end of the day, leave it all there. Rampage has been the most physically grueling role of my career. Got my ass kicked and handed back to me the whole movie. But I'm grateful to go to bed 💯 satisfied I left it all on the set. Who the **** am I kidding, I don't sleep, but if I did, I still left it all on the set. #LeaveItAllPhilosophy #Rampage A post shared by therock (@therock) on Jul 8, 2017 at 10:22am PDT The full text of his post: Leave it all on the set.

His life hasn't been easy but the man overcame hardships and taught his son a lesson in strength. Dwayne shared his dad's heartbreaking story last year, when he bought his father a car as a Christmas gift. He says in the post: “In front of the entire family, my dad's mom looked at him and said get out. He was 13yrs old and now homeless. That f*cked up true story happened in Amherst, Nova Scotia, Canada in 1954.” Bought my dad a Christmas gift and surprised him. He's had a hard life. This one felt good. My dad, Rocky Johnson is a minimalist. Always has been. Never asks me for much and over the years his needs are always the barest. Crazy story, my dad's dad died when he was 13yrs old. That Christmas, my dad's mom had her new boyfriend over for Christmas dinner. Her boyfriend got drunk and pissed on the turkey. My dad went outside, got a shovel, drew a line in the snow and said if you cross that line I'll kill you. The drunk crossed it and my dad laid him out cold as a block of ice. Cops were called. They told my dad's mom that when her boyfriend regains consciousness, he's gonna kill your son so one of them has got to go. In front of the entire family, my dad's mom looked at him and said get out. He was 13yrs old and now homeless. That f*cked up true story happened in Amherst, Nova Scotia, Canada in 1954. He needed the bare minimum then, just like does now. Over the years, I've moved him into a big home, got him trucks to drive - which he'll literally drive into the ground until I get him something else. Hell, I'll get him anything he wants, but the SOB just won't ask;). Every Christmas, I always think about that story and my dad having every odd stacked against him at 13, but he fought thru it and still made something of himself. Makes me appreciate his struggle and hard work. Also, makes me appreciate the fun times he would beat my ass in the gym so bad when I was 13 and say "If you're gonna throw up, go outside.. and if you're gonna cry, then go home to your mother". I hated it then, but I embrace it now. Made a man outta me. Without pissing on my turkey. 😂👍🏾. Just a small way of saying thank you dad and Merry Christmas! #DwantaClaus🎅🏾 A post shared by therock (@therock) on Dec 30, 2016 at 10:15am PST The Rock has often been vocal about his admiration and love for his father. His father's tale of struggle is an inspiration for many, but the lessons he taught his son are even bigger. Fathers can give you immense strength and now we know from where Dwayne Johnson gets his.
  13. In a nation as obsessed with its film personalities as ours, the idea of personal space isn’t as commonly understood as you’d think, especially when it’s a woman in question. Vidya Balan who is known to have a friendly rapport with her fans lost her cool recently and for some very legit reasons. Vidya Balan was at the Kolkata airport with the producer and director of ‘Begum Jaan’, her upcoming film when a fan requested to click a selfie with her. © BCCL As most celebrities would, Vidya Balan obliged her fan. According to a report by Spotboye, the moment Vidya Balan agreed to the fan’s demand of clicking a selfie with him, the man put her arm around her without even asking her. “Don’t”, she said sternly. “Please, don’t do that.” Her manager warned the fan too when he didn’t immediately take his hand off Vidya. During his second attempt to click a selfie with her, he put her arm around her once again, despite being asked not to, the moment she turned towards the camera. “What do you think you are doing? This is wrong.” Vidya Balan confronted him but he continued to ask for a selfie. “No you can’t, behave yourself!” Vidya Balan lashed back at him and walked off. © BCCL Later, in a conversation with Spotboye, she said. “When a stranger puts an arm around you, be it a man or a woman you get uncomfortable because they are intruding into your personal space. We are public figures, not public property.” Well, the fan sure got his lesson. A no is a NO. As simple as that.
  14. No matter how much we loved our school days, the English classes, especially the grammar lectures, were not something we would like to remember. While literature was fun and writing skills are a classic guessing game, honing our grammar was a task. But, like they say “Where there is a will, there is a way!” and no matter how monotonous the grammar classes were, there was always some genius knocking at our doors with his or her unique way of teaching. The best part was, no matter how quirky those tricks were, we somehow got used to it and eventually fell in love with it. © wikimedia Talking about geniuses, here is one guy who is way ahead of his counterparts and perfectly fits the league of uber-cool people. His swag can give ‘Jordan’ aka Ranbir Kapoor from ‘Rockstar’, a run for his money. He is teaching English in the most hilarious way possible and his disciples seem to enjoy this swag. Not only does he sing while teaching them past and present tense, but shows off some killer dance moves as well. Now, this is what happens when you want to go clubbing with friends but your mom forces you to help your siblings with studies. “You don’t, you don’t write a letter; they don’t, they don’t write a letter,” take a cue, Yo Yo Honey Singh, for your next rap. Just to ensure that the students understand everything clearly, he translates a few lines in Hindi too. Check out this video that will leave you in splits. Don’t blame us if by the end of this, your eyes start bleeding or you start learning correct grammar this way. The video is breaking the internet and this guy is gathering a serious fan following on Facebook. Check out what these people had to say about this ‘ingenious’ method. Now let us all observe 2 minutes of silence for the murder of the English language. Source: Indian Express
  15. While Modi’s demonetization move may be debatable to you and me, there’s no denying that it’s left the common man crippled. Whether this chaos is going to be followed by ‘achhe din’ or not, the current state of people surviving without cash, more so in areas like Kashmir that don’t have internet access, is a pressing issue. Internet banking is still a distant dream for a major part of our population. The queues outside ATMs aren’t moving any quicker and much to the whole nation’s dismay, it’s costing us lives. While PM Modi requests his countrymen to bear with the inconvenience for a little longer, a church in Kerala is doing its bit for humanity. Facebook Understanding and empathizing with the plight of the underprivileged who might not even have legitimate bank accounts to get their 500 and 1000 currency notes transferred to, the people who might not have the means to survive these ‘cashless; days, St Martin De Porres church in Ernakulam district of Kerala is reminding us that humanity comes above everything else. On Sunday, the Church opened two of their donation boxes, so people in dire need of cash could meet their daily needs. "It is the church where people come and talk about their problems. Some of them did meet the priest and tell how they were finding it difficult to buy daily necessities. That's when the father discussed about the possibility of opening the collection box to the needy," Shelson Francis, Convenor, Church Committee Youth Wing said. Twitter "There are around 200 families who come under this church. Most of them are people who may not have proper savings in bank accounts and those who do not know the workings of an ATM. Ever since the Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes became illegal, they have been struggling to meet their daily needs," Jimmy Poochakkatt, the parish priest said. The most heartwarming part is, the Church did so expecting absolutely nothing in return. “We did not keep track of who took what. But we were told the box mainly filled with Rs 10 and Rs 50 notes were of great help for them," Shelson Francis said. It’s beautiful to see the people of this country helping each other out unconditionally even in these testing times when even the smallest currency could mean a life to someone.
  16. Remember what they taught you about the revolt of 1857 and Gandhi’s freedom struggle back in school? Well, turns out it was all bullsh*t. Thanks to the internet, we’re finally enlightened by some of the best kept secrets of Indian history and it changes every damn thing, No, really. There’s a page called ‘Honest Indian Histories’ and it’s the kind of stuff they should have taught us back in school. Sounds legit. George R.R. Martin, the truth is out. Funny on so many levels. Most candid picture of Vijay Mallya. Whoever created this page deserves an award! LOLOLOL This low blow! Can’t…believe…they…went…there Anupam Kher never looked this intense. Such candid. Much wow. *cough cough* ROFLMAO! The real GoT. Good luck bro. What about her tits? This is GOLD. Most appropriate meme ever. A rare picture of Bob Dylan. Priceless. For all you party lovers! Laughed harder than I should have. Found something? Doesn’t look like it. *stomach aches from all the laughter* My life in a meme. Nationalists, we need you here. Doing a pretty good job. This day is made. The God of all puns. Because come on, an exorcist needs clients. Just when you think the internet can’t have more RaGa jokes. *dies laughing* Truth has been spoken. RaGa trollers strike again. Babaji ki booty. Caught in action. This looks more Tiger Shroff than Tiger Shroff himself. Kim minus contouring. Sonia Gandhi ramp ready. Best scene ever. Who said there was no media then. Damn you Shabri. Those weren’t the berries he was expecting you to taste. Bwahaha!
