  1. The smartwatch and wearables industry is growing at a fast pace and there was bound to be an affordable smartwatch that can do everything that an Apple Watch can do. However, not all smartwatches are as fluid as the Apple Watch or deliver an experience that keeps users loyal. However, if you are looking for an affordable smartwatch, the Amazfit Verge is the closest bet that offers GPS navigation, fitness tracking and notification management for Rs 12,000. The smartwatch category is flooded with numerous options, but does the Amazfit Verge perform better than the rest of them? Let's find out. Design Being a budget smartwatch, the Verge does not offer the same build quality as a premium smartwatch. It's got an all plastic body with one plastic button on the upper right corner. It's light and does not offer that feel good factor you would want from a watch. The red button is used for navigating apps and selecting options. However, the button is not accurate as we would have to often click the button multiple times to get the OS to respond. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The smartwatch comes with a proprietary charger which we feel was not the best design option to go with. When done charging, sometimes we would have to yank out the smartwatch hard, fearing we may just break the strap or the charger. We would also have to place the smartwatch in the current orientation as it does not have charging pins on both sides of the charger. The circular dial on the Amazfit Verge houses an AMOLED display which is bright enough to be clear and visible in bright sunlight. The display is good enough to read notifications and text which is a plus to have on a smartwatch. There are 10 watch faces you can choose from which can be changed from the watch itself or from the app. Having said that, the watch-faces are quite rudimentary and does not offer many customisations. Features The one thing I love about the Apple Watch is the ability to view notifications and take appropriate action. For example, I can reply to WhatsApp messages, text messages and send voice notes without ever opening my smartphone. On the Amazfit Verge, you do get notifications, but you cannot reply to text messages or even read emails. There's no support for third-party apps which makes it quite disappointing, The only apps you can use are the ones that come pre-installed i.e. heart rate reader, timer, stopwatch and that's about it. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Amazfit Verge has an integrated mic and speaker. This can be used for making and receiving calls straight on the smartwatch. In order for this feature to work, you need to have your smartphone near you. You can even use the stereo speaker to listen to music as it has 4GB of onboard memory (2GB more storing music). In our experience, the feature worked well especially when making calls. Callers did notice that I sounded like I was using an earpiece. However, we would have loved to see the Amazfit Verge would ring at the same time as the smartphone. Call notifications were sometimes delayed and in that time we could just pick up the call on the smartphone. It kind of defeats the purpose of having a call feature on the smartphone if we don't get notified on time. Performance Being a smartwatch, it is able to track your activity and exercises just like any other smartwatch however not all is rosy in this category either. We found the footstep tracking to be inaccurate when calculating steps taken manually and comparing it with the readings. In fact, we tried to test the accuracy by wearing the smartwatch for the first time on our drive to work. The Amazfit Verge tracked 200 steps while we were driving indicating that it isn't as reliable as budget fitness bands. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla When it comes to GPS tracking, the smartwatch was accurate at most occasions; however, we found it to be off by 200 meters sometimes in select areas and sometimes off by a kilometre. This may not bother a casual runner. However, it can be quite disadvantageous for hikers and outdoor runners. The other problem with the GPS feature is its inability to start up quickly. We were ready to go for a walk and had to wait for the GPS to start working. The Amazfit Verge takes particularly long to catch the GPS signal which can be frustrating if you want to just get going with your workout. The heart rate monitor is accurate on the Amzfit Verge as the results were almost identical with the Apple Watch Series 4 and Omron Pulse Oximeter. The Amazfit Verge has the ability to track different types of workouts and can automatically detect your activity. This is a nifty feature that works on the Amazfit Verge as advertised. However, you cannot track multiple workouts at the same time as you will need to end each activity tracking mode before starting another. This basically does not allow a user to track different activities in a single workout which can be a bit frustrating when exercising. You don't want to keep looking at your smartwatch before you start a new exercise as we're already in the flow and don't want to stop. The Final Say The Amazfit Verge offers every feature you want to see on a specs sheet. However, it simply doesn't cut it. Just because it has all the features doesn't mean it's a great smartwatch. It needs to be executed properly for cohesive user experience. From delayed notifications to a less than an appealing design choice, the Amazit Verge is not something we expected. The operating system needs to be more refined and needs to be able to handle more than one app at a time. Activity tracking also needs improvement which is one of the salient features of a smartwatch. Priced at Rs 12,000, it's suitable for people who are looking for a smartwatch packed with features and can sacrifice the overall user experience.
  2. They say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Since fashion is subjective, we don't expect everyone to understand every trend. But when companies create bizarre products that are listed for ridiculous prices, we can't help but be shocked. Gucci's Cruise '19 collection features a pair of 'vintage distressed sneakers' that have us shook. The shoes look pre-dirty and worn and we're just not sure who would actually want to own a pair. Take a look at these babies. © Gucci © Gucci The product detail on the website lists that the shoes are inspired by vintage sportswear patterns from the 70s and is treated for an 'all-over distressed effect'. We don't know about distress but these just look plain dirty and worn out. They look a little too vintage, if you ask us. © Gucci If you're already frowning over the bizarre product, wait till we mention the price of these kicks. The Screener GG Sneaker is retailed at 870 USD which converts to Rs 61,938. That's pretty damn expensive for a pair of old worn-out looking shoes. © Gucci As if the Gucci 'racist' sweater controversy hadn't stirred enough trouble for the brand, this shoe is getting trolled by the internet too. Take a look at what some Twitter users had to say about this product. Gucci is really out here selling the sneakers your mom uses for gardening and Sunday cleaning for $800 pic.twitter.com/Eh5wEBQMSc — camille (@cxmillexxxx) October 30, 2018 The poor try to look rich and the rich try to look poor! ð — BROOKLYNBREAD (@Rinseyjones) November 7, 2018 When ur born rich a f but don't wanna be a called a snobby daddy's boy at school = Gucci's New Vintage Sportswear-Inspired Dirty Sneakers Cost $870 USD #gucci #guccifromthehood https://t.co/ektXQtoKIl — Nadia. K (@nadiakhairinas) November 7, 2018 After the Croc Bag, we weren't ready for another bizarre shoe just yet. On the brighter side, you wouldn't have to wash these sneakers.
  3. Condoms while the most popular and justifiably reliable contraceptive method doesn't work for everyone. From latex allergies to excessive friction to just the curiosity of exploring a new method of contraception are all justified reasons to look for alternatives. Here is a curated list of possible alternatives that you could explore with your partner. 1. Combined Oral Contraceptive © Getty Images The pills primarily made for women are a combination of two hormones: estrogen and progesterone. These are taken for three weeks out of every four either as a daily tablet or less frequently in the form of a patch every week or vaginal ring every three weeks. This method is over 99% effective (less than 1 woman out of every 100 will get pregnant each year when using it correctly). It works by preventing the release of an egg, thickening the cervical mucus to stop sperm getting through and thinning the lining of the womb to prevent an egg implanting and growing. However, it's important to note that there is a very small risk of developing a blood clot (deep vein thrombosis), having a stroke or a heart attack, getting breast or cervical cancer while on the pill. For most women, the risks are far outweighed by the benefits of being on the pill but it is strongly advised to get on the pill after consulting a gynaecologist 2. Progesterone Only Pill (The Mini-Pill) © Getty Images Again for women, the pill contains only one hormone, progesterone (no oestrogen), and is taken every day without break and has to be taken within same 3-hour window each day without a break. Women may experience their periods to be irregular and unpredictable or they may even stop entirely. The pill is 99% effective, if used correctly however, even with lesser health risks there are chances of developing ovarian cysts. 3. Caps/ Diaphragms © Getty Images A flexible latex/ silicone device used with a spermicide gel to cover the cervix and prevent sperm from entering. One of the advantages include that It's a chemical-free alternative to hormone-based contraceptive methods, so there are no side effects or health risks at all. However, It can be messy and needs to be left in place for at least six hours for it to be 92 - 96% effective. 4. Fertility Awareness Apps And Devices © Getty Images Fertility awareness apps are based on modern algorithms and your smartphone to predict the woman's vaginal temperature, period and ovulation to work out when she's fertile but it's like one of the earliest forms of birth control - fertility awareness and 'natural' planning. It's a tiny window of a few days, but if you get the estimates wrong it can result in pregnancy. However, if used entirely correctly, the app can be as effective as the pill. However, it's advisable to combine it with protection to be on the safer side. 5. Female Condoms © Getty Images If you can get the instructions right, and use this preventive well, it can have 79-95% effectiveness. It's a pretty unpopular method because of less demand which is mostly because people don't know about them. However, there is no reason why it wouldn't work just as effectively. ' 6. Depo Shots © Getty Images A dose of progesterone given by injection to women every 12 weeks. A great contraceptive, however, the side effects include weight gain for women and also it takes about a year to be fertile again for the woman after ceasing to continue this method. It is extremely effective and less than four women per thousand will become pregnant every two years when using this method. However, It's not ideal for long term use as can have a thinning effect on the bones. 7. Nexplanon Implant © Getty Images This contraceptive is a matchstick-sized flexible rod placed under the skin of a woman's arm which releases progesterone. This works for 3 years straight by preventing ovulation, thickening cervical mucus and thinning the womb lining. Periods may stop altogether for women or may become less frequent and lighter. Sometimes the pill is given (if suitable) in the first few months in addition to the implant to settle down bleeding. Common side effects may include headaches, mood swings, spots and breast tenderness but often improve after the first few months. However, with minimal side-effects, this is the most effective method available for women with less than 1 per thousand will become pregnant in a 3 year period and the best part is that the changes are reversible immediately on removal of the implant. 8. Copper IUD / Coil © Getty Images This is a small plastic T-shaped copper device which is placed inside the womb. Copper has properties that kill the sperm hence preventing fertilisation and implantation of eggs. This has no effect on ovulation so should not change the natural hormonal cycle. It's popular with women who need effective contraceptive, but do not want or cannot have hormones. However, it will usually make mensuration bleeding heavier, more painful and often prolonged. It is over 99% effective if placed properly and can also last for up to 10 years depending on the exact device used. 9. Mirena IUS © Getty Images Again, a small plastic T-shaped device which is placed inside the womb and releases progesterone over a period of 5 years. Although this contains a hormone, It has a suppressive effect on the womb lining and thereby reduces or even stops periods, making it a good choice for those with heavy painful periods and is actually used for that reason even in women who do not need contraception. Over 99% effective and fertility returns immediately on removal of the IUS. 10. Jaydess © Getty Images A relatively new contraceptive, the smaller 'hormone coil' contains only about a quarter of the hormone dose of the Mirena and lasts for 3 years. It is even easier to fit into smaller wombs and may be more suitable for younger women who have not had children or for those who want an even lesser amount of hormone in their bodies. 9/10 women will continue to have their periods with this method although they are likely to be lighter and again, there may be initial spotting or irregular bleeding. It is more than 99% effective. 11. Sponges © Getty Images The sponge comes with added spermicide that helps prevent pregnancy. They're a single use option, and cannot be worn for more than 30 hours at a time just like a condom however obviously they last for longer. The spermicide slows down the sperm and stops them from heading towards the egg, and the sponge itself covers your cervix, to block them if they do get there. They are easy to use: you just have to wet the sponge to activate the spermicide, and then the woman can insert it, as far up as you find comfortable. These also need to be left in your vagina for at least six hours after having ***, so you have to remember to include this in your 30-hour calculation. However, there's no STI protection, and it can't be used while the woman is on her period. 12. The Patch © Getty Images With effectiveness over 91-99%, the patch is very similar to an implant, it works effectively because it can be stuck on the arm of the woman and forgotten about. It contains small amounts of hormones that get into the system. But if it falls off, its effectiveness is reduced. 13. Male Sterilisation Or Vasectomy © Getty Images Vasectomy is a surgical procedure for male sterilization and permanent contraception. During this procedure, the male vas deferens are cut and tied or sealed so as to prevent sperm from entering into the urethra and thereby prevent fertilization of a female through sexual intercourse. it can be considered a permanent procedure. PSA: It is important to keep in mind that unlike condoms a lot of these won't save you from sexually transmitted diseases.

  5. The Indian Railways as well as Minister Piyush Goyal decided to get a bit sassy with all defaulters and people who dupe for tickets with a clever hack. They launched their own 'Gully Boy' rap to warn everyone that 'tera time aayega' and it's hilarious. Tera Time Aayega pic.twitter.com/3JI8SoPx3u — Piyush Goyal (@PiyushGoyal) February 18, 2019 The funny video is a reminder to buy train tickets and not fool around with the TC while you are on a journey. While we loved this 'shaana' take on the original song sung from Zoya Akhtar's 'Gully Boy', people on social media decided to make a few points to retaliate to this rap. Train Time Pe Aayega? — Rizzzzzz (@ShaikhNabi1) February 18, 2019 Train time se jayega , beech main to nahi ruk jayega — Rahul (@dildar12) February 18, 2019 While some innocently questioned train timings, some shared their own woes. Window seat pe baithne ka time aata hai tab tak mera stop aajata hai ð­ð­ — Godman Chikna (@Madan_Chikna) February 18, 2019 Hope this becomes "Tu bina ticket aaya hai toh fine bharke jaayega" Kyunki pakda jaane ke baad kya hota hai hum sabko pata hai. — SAGAR (@sagarcasm) February 19, 2019 All jokes aside, one should obviously not flout rules and act too 'shaana'! So please buy your own ticket, guys.
  6. Has it ever happened to you, that you got back home with your date after a romantic dinner, and as soon as you took off your shoes, your date fainted? Well we hope not (and that was a hyperbole), but trust us, nothing will kill your *** life and your social life in general faster than smelly feet. It's super unpleasant, and more importantly, extremely embarrassing. © Getty Images No one wants to experience that damp, musty odour coming from your socks. Most men don't know how to get rid of it, and whenever they seek help, there's usually a long list of things that are presented to them that are effective but time-consuming. But worry not, for we are here, and we have a super easy solution that will take less than a minute every day. © Getty Images One needs to understand that the main reason behind feet odour is the sweat they produce, and bacteria and fungus trapped inside shoes and socks thrive in that moist, warm environment. If one can find a way to take away that moisture, odour can be significantly reduced. The best way? The good old, always handy, talcum powder. © Getty Images Every day after taking a shower, make sure to dry your feet properly - especially the spaces between the toes and your nail corners. Once that is done, put some talcum powder/baby powder on your feet and spread it all around with your hands. Then wear a pair of clean socks (you can also spray some powder inside the socks before putting them on). Use some anti-bacterial or anti-fungal powder for amazing results. © Getty Images And voila! You'll notice a difference instantly. Of course, apart from this, you definitely cannot underestimate the importance of maintaining feet hygiene and always washing them properly. Try not covering your feet up all the time and wear open toed footwear if you suffer from it all the time.
  7. If you ask us which is the most stylish family in the world, it has to the Beckhams. No offense to the Royal Family but the surname Beckham is synonymous to great style. Ever since they started dating back in the 90s, David and Victoria Beckham have been serving majorly iconic fashion moments that we need to address, like right now. David Beckham and Victoria Beckham have been setting the bar high for power couple dressing over the years. They take this pretty seriously considering they're always seen complimenting each other's outfit in some way or the other. Here are 10 pictures that prove David and Victoria Beckham are the definition of couple style goals: 1. The fashionable couple attended the Louis Vuitton show in head-to-toe LV. The couple's outfits gave out major 70s vibes and are a lesson on how to stay warm but fashionable. © Gettyimages 2. Victoria and David Beckham at the London Fashion Week stuck to solid tones centered around black and grey. Usage of textures like tweed and velvet to make formal wear minimal is a major style inspo. © Gettyimages 3. Care for a little 90s throwback? In true Spice Girl style, Victoria looks so good in that chainmail top (chainmail trend is back now TBH) and low waist trousers, but David's all black look with that bandana is everything. © Gettyimages 4. At Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Royal Wedding, the Beckhams arrived in absolute style. From David's Dior charcoal grey double breasted coat to Victoria's all navy number with tangerine pumps, they looked every bit royal worthy of attending a royal wedding. Fun fact: the couple auctioned these outfits to support the Manchester terror attack charity funds. © Gettyimages 5. Everything about this couple screams fashion. The perfect mixture of knitwear, slim leather trousers, pleated pants and white footwear. Victoria's red waistband adds a pop of color to this otherwise neutral couple style. Absolutely bang on! © Gettyimages 6. Nothing says power dressing more than an all white look. Top that up with dashing David Beckham in a tuxedo with a bow tie and Victoria Beckham in that pristine off-shoulder gown and you have a winner. © Gettyimages 7. The Beckhams love nothing more than a monochromatic wardrobe. Black being their personal favorite is a foolproof way of rocking the red-carpet every single time with their minimalist style. Both of them look so striking in black, don't they? © Gettyimages 8. One thing about the Beckhams is that they love dark tones, especially black. Rocking an all black couple look has been their signature style and this one doesn't disappoint. David's classic black suit with an open collared shirt with Victoria's 'sheer' spin on an LBD is a sure statement maker. © Gettyimages 9. Talking about all black looks from the couple got us thinking about an oldie but a goodie. Oh, the time when David and Victoria donned a head-to-toe all black leather look complete with leather boots. We hope somebody got these two a motorbike to hop on! © Gettyimages 10. If there's one way to draw attention at a tennis game without even playing it, take style lessons from the Beckhams. At the Wimbledon, David's debonair double breasted blazer with chinos and a printed tie was completely in sync with Victoria's navy color blocked dress. Perfection! © Gettyimages Everyone needs to take some serious couple dressing tips from these two. David and Victoria Beckham FTW, y'all!
  8. If you've watched 'Gully Boy', you probably are as enamoured by Siddhant Chaturvedi AKA MC Sher, as Murad was after watching him perform for the first time from the balcony of his college. The newcomer has not only delivered a powerhouse performance worth thunderous applause, but he has also has managed to do it while sharing the screen with Ranveer Singh - who without a doubt is one of the finest performers in the industry today, someone who can easily steal your thunder on screen without even having to put an effort. However, homeboy Sher didn't let that happen and held his own valiantly. From raw talent to enviable screen presence, this man already has everything going on for him. The cherry on the cake? He's effortlessly stylish, and his handsome boy-next-door demeanour makes us confident that Bollywood might just have discovered its next Vicky Kaushal. Here are 10 pictures that establish our claim: 1. "City of stars, are you shining just for me?" View this post on Instagram A post shared by Siddhant Chaturvedi (@siddhantchaturvedi) on Jan 30, 2019 at 9:02am PST 2. Burly with a side of curly hair.

  9. Remember Ricky Martin? Of course you do. We all danced our birthday parties away to songs like 'Livin' La Vida Loca' and 'She bangs' in our childhood - irrespective of how age-inappropriate some of them might be for kids, we now realize. However, those days, we were too innocent to read between the lines, and everyone just enjoyed the music. Especially when it comes to Ricky, his music had the inherent ability to make everyone groove to the rhythm, irrespective of the language barriers at times (remember 'Maria'?) Ricky was keeping a low profile for the longest time in between, till he came to the forefront again with 'American Crime Story - The Assassination Of Gianni Versace'. Before that, he was enjoying fatherhood, and some quality time with his super adorable family. Ricky, along with husband Jwan Yosef, legit make the most stylish dads around, and here are 10 pictures which prove that. 1. Just look at them. © Getty Images 2.

  10. Suniel Shetty perhaps has the best 'redemption story' in Bollywood, when it comes to fashion and grooming. From being the ever-scruffy and sweaty distressed hero with anger issues wearing torn and tattered clothes to the suave, sophisticated aesthetic he now proudly flaunts, his has been a journey worth noticing. Of the many, many things that contributed to his swanky new avatar now, his beard probably is the most important entity. His thick, shapely salt-n-pepper face mane is as alluring as it is intimidating, and it just works for his classy-dad aesthetic in a way that's extremely impressive. Here are 10 pictures which prove that Suniel Shetty has the best beard in Bollywood right now. 1. 'Yoga se hi hoga' but that beard tho!

  11. We understand that a major reward for all those who lift is showing your hard work (muscle) to other people. And why not? Lifting is not an activity accomplished overnight. It takes years of training and altering your diet to reach the ripped goal posters stuck on the inside of your bathroom door. And when you finally start to begin to feel ripped after countless, endless and more importantly breathless workout sessions, you obviously want to...scream it out loud, lift your tshirt everywhere you go, and post #gains on Instagram. However, you may be in a position where all of this is not possible. For example if you're a part of a professional setting or say in college where stripping is not possible at all. Then, instead you could wear clothes that help you get the definition by following these tips: 1. Avoid Graphic Tees © kartikaaryan Graphic tees are designed to conceal any kind of bulges. They would work best for a guy who wants to hide them. You, on the other hand, want to flaunt your bulges which means graphic tees are your enemy. 2. Embrace Solid Snug Sweats © fktgram Make solid snug tees your best friend. These kind of silhouettes help make your abs become more pronounced, which always helps. You just have to wear a solid tee and watch eyes linger around as you walk through hallways. 3. Wear A Buttoned-Up Shirt © fktgram A counter-intuitive move but a buttoned up shirt will give you more definition than a buttoned down shirt. It always leave space for people to imagine your muscles which is a good thing. 4. Roll Up The Sleeves © johnabrahamfanaccount If you roll up your sleeves, it immediately adds more structure and definition to your outfit. Case in point: John Abraham with his sleeves rolled up. 5. Go For Snug Fitted Formals © vainglorious Snug fitted formals make a better case against baggy ill-fitted formals for obvious reasons. Make sure you buy the right sizes when you shop for formals. Muscles pop out with the right size. 6. Layering © hritikroshan Layering is a great way to define things underneath. Again, it's important to stick to the right size and not overdo it.
  12. While most of you are busy celebrating Valentine's Day today with your SO, we at MensXP are celebrating some of the most beautiful love stories. Love stories that are far greater than any shackles of stereotypes, discrimination against homosexuality, barriers of caste, religion and everything in between. Stories of people who dared to bare their hearts in front of each other, overcame their ups and downs in life together with a big smile on their faces. Amidst the daily battles between old school romance vs millennial love, reel-life romance vs real-life love stories; there is one couple who is living their love one moment at a time and redefining the term 'relationship goals' for all of us every day. We're talking about Rajkummar Rao and Patralekha, whose 8-year-old relationship has not only stood the test of time but also proved to be an inspiration for those around them. © Instagram Rajkummar is undoubtedly one of the finest and the most versatile actors in the current crop of Bollywood. We have seen many facets of Rajkummar Rao on-screen, but how is the actor in real life, especially when it comes to love? Patralekha gave us exclusive insights into their relationship, their favourite memories and their idea of Valentine's Day. Their First Date & Favourite Memory "I was totally amazed and blown away by his dedication and hard work. He was focussed and would only concentrate on his next scene. I started admiring him and then we became friends", said Patralekha, who met him in FTII where the two had gone to do a student project. When asked about her favourite memory, she said, "I was back home in Shillong and Raj just turned up outside my home to surprise me." © Instagram The 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga' actor too has a special memory of how the two met and who played the cupid for him. Turns out it was a commercial he saw her in, "We never went on an official date. It's surprising but it's true. I had noticed her in a commercial before we got a chance to work with each other but somewhere deep down, I always knew that she is the one." Millennial Love vs Old School Romance "My idea of love is old school if you ask. I would love to receive a hand-written note from Patra or I love it when she asks me 'how your day' after a day's hard work. So, you can call me traditional that way, but I believe in keeping promises."- Rajkummar. "My idea of love is all about trust. You invest so much in a relationship emotionally that it can totally drain you if your trust or love is broken. So, both of us trust each other immensely and ensure we don't break it or take each other for granted." - Patralekha. © Instagram How Do The Two 'Share The Load' And Responsibilities Recently, Rajkummar and Patralekha appeared together in the campaign organised by Ariel. The campaign talks about gender equality and urges the sons to '#ShareTheLoad'. The core triggering question of this powerful movement is – 'Are we teaching our sons what we are teaching our daughters?' Bollywood's latest 'IT' couple too participated in the campaign and spoke to lengths about their idea of equality. Rajkummar said, "Today's sons will be tomorrow's husbands and thus, they should be equipped to demonstrate equality within the household. They can start this with simple chore like laundry and start sharing responsibilities with their mothers and sisters so that they grow up to be equal partners when they get married." © Instagram Patralekha too feels that since women today are excelling in all fields, they expect to get support from their partners so that they don't feel overburdened with responsibilities. "It's only fair that their partners share the load. But if sons of today are not equipped to contribute to household work, they will never be able to do it in future. Thus, conflict is natural to occur. I am thankful to have Raj as a partner. He believes, says, and demonstrates that we are truly equal partners. But, partners like Raj shouldn't be exceptions, they should be the norm," said Patralekha. Reel-Life Vs Real-Life Jealousy and possessiveness can sometimes break even the strongest of relationships. With billions of people watching you and keeping a track of your personal life, things only get tough for Bollywood actors. "I am quite secure that way. It's because of the confidence, comfort and trust that Raj gives me. We share everything so there is no doubt and if there is, I openly ask him, and he explains. Being from the same industry, I understand the limitations and compulsions that actors must go through. So, it works out fine." - Patralekha. Just like all of us, Raj and Patra too have their own plans and ideas about Valentine's Day and they are genuinely better than all of ours. © Instagram "Every day is a Valentine's Day with Patra. She is a great partner and a great friend; she is the person I want to come back to after a long day. I can be myself with her without being judged. I think love is about all this, about the comfort, compassion, fun that you share with the partner." - Rajkummar.

No special plans, being together and taking time out for each other is the best thing to do." - Patralekha. We guess we all can learn a lesson or two from Raj and Patra, as the two lovingly call each other, when it comes to treating our partners as equals.
  13. Imagine you're on a date and everything's going well, by the end of it, you drop your date home. You lean in expecting a kiss but as you start to extend yourself in a half-hug, to your surprise they shrug away quickly with a pinched expression. You wonder what went wrong, and hope for a text later. But you never get that text. What went wrong? One of the possible reasons could be body odour. The thing is, a perfume or a deo can only protect you for so long. You need an organic and more permanent fix. Home made remedies fall in this category. Here are some of the home remedies that you could try: 1. Lavender Oil © Shutterstock Lavender stops the growth of the odor-causing bacteria. And the essence emanates a soft fragrance. Cornstarch and baking soda keep the skin dry, thereby preventing any accumulation of bacteria. You will need 10 drops of lavender essential oil along with 3 teaspoons of cornstarch and 2 teaspoons of baking soda. Mix the lavender oil with the cornstarch and baking soda and store the mixture in a dark place for a couple of days. Try applying this daily in order to see a prominent difference. 2. Apple Cider Vinegar © Shutterstock Apple cider vinegar has acidic properties that kill and prevent any kind of bacterial formation, which in turn, prevents foul body odour. Take some apple cider vinegar and directly apply to your underarms and other body parts using a cotton ball. Alternatively, in half a cup of ACV mix a cup of water and then use a deodorant. 3. Tea Bags © Shutterstock Tea bags have tannins present in the tea that keep the skin dry and prevent any sweat formation. Just bring the water to a boil and add the tea bags. Pour this tea into your regular bath and soak in it for 15-20 minutes. Repeat at least thrice a week to see effective results. 4. Lemon Drops © Shutterstock Lemon drops have ingrained acidic levels that lower the pH of our body, making it difficult for the bacteria to survive on our skin. Just cut the lemon into two halves and rub it directly on your underarms. Allow it to dry completely. Wash it off with lukewarm water. If you have sensitive skin, you can dilute lemon juice with a few drops of water and then apply it on the underarms. 5. Rose Water © Shutterstock Rose water is an astringent which reduces the size of the pores present on the skin, and this decreases sweat production. It additionally leaves behind a floral fragrance. Just mix rose water with apple cider vinegar. Store this mixture in a bottle and spray on your underarms and other body parts whenever required.
  14. Yes, it's the day of love and just like everyone else, Netflix too decided to give some of it away to us, because honestly it's become a hell of a useful tool to celebrate all sorts of 'chills' we may want to with our loved ones. © Netflix On Valentine's Day though, Netflix has come out with a beautiful video to celebrate all kinds of love and we found it so endearing we had to go ahead and share it. The poetic journey of falling in love is a tale as old as time. From 'Mughal-E-Azam' to 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge', each story is filled with moments which remind us just how powerful human connections can be. © Netflix The video is a beautiful rendition of a modern-day love story between two men, who hopelessly fall in love with one another and live to celebrate their love, every day. As their relationship develops and their love grows stronger and 'stranger'. We follow them as they lay the foundations for their lives together... along with a small hiccup on the way. One of them watches an episode of their favourite show 'Stranger Things' without the other and what follows next is so endearing, it'll make you want to forgive every fight you may have ever had with your SO! © Netflix After all, at the end of the day, every relationship is an 'Original'. This love story was brought to life by acclaimed filmmaker Reema Sengupta. Through an emotive palate and lingering visuals, she captured this manifestation of Indian romance in all of its beauty. © Netflix "We wanted to come together to make a film that cares about what it says, how it says it and the processes through which it is made. It was exciting to know that Netflix cared just as much! Netflix really has become an integral part of the modern love story. A considerable portion of our relationships today are spent lazing around with our partners watching Netflix, discussing shows, or Netflix & chilling! A lot of love went into making this, and we all came out of it feeling much closer. Even while we were making the film, the entire crew could feel the importance of this representation and pushed themselves to the limit to bring this to life." Reema spoke about her film to Netflix. © Netflix After all, if we can't transcend the love we have for one another into stories then what's the point of even having love, to begin with! Stories catch the very essence of everything basic you need to fulfil an emotion and if we have a story on our favourite love portal, then there's nothing like it, is there! It's time to show courage, tell your story and aptly profess your love for one another this Valentine's Day!
  15. Post-Apocalyptic shooter games are now becoming a common theme in games that have caused fatigue amongst seasoned players. However, whenever a new Metro game is set to release, we all seem to set that fatigue aside as the franchise has a fresh outlook towards the theme. Metro Exodus exudes that feeling as it's probably the only game that leaves a fearsomely oppressive feeling right off the bat. © MensXP You continue the story in the franchise with Artyom, set in the dark gritty world of post-apocalyptic Russia. You're in the dark underbelly of Moscow's metro system where you will encounter scary ghouls and in always in mortal danger from mutated beasts. 4A games left no stone unturned to give you the true feeling of fear as you will be battered right from the beginning of the game. You will encounter monsters in the dark and often find yourself stuck in sticky situations that don't work in your favour. You will either have a weapon that needs cleaning or your mask is about to break that needs repairing. It's not only the monsters that strike fear in you, but it's also every bit of the game such as mechanics and limited resources that add to the fear. Metro as a franchise was always set in the gritty underground world of tunnels and sewers where you would only get a glimpse of destroyed Moscow in cut-scenes and specific missions. However this time in Metro Exodus, 4A games takes you out of the world of gritty tunnels and puts you in a heavily-armoured train called the Aurora. You and a group of survivors venture out of Moscow to find survivors and link up with Command to find out what is going on. © 4A Games In the franchise, Moscow's tunnel dwelling survivors believed that they were the only ones that manage to live. However, as you play Metro Exodus, you learn early on that there are survivors elsewhere. This also translated to you taking the Aurora through semi open-world environments where you will struggle to find resources to fix the train throughout your journey to 'Command'. Don't mistake this for an open-world game as Metro Exodus still exudes the elation of skin-of-the-teeth survival and oppressive gameplay even when you are in the open. 4A games is known for making games that are terrifying and Metro Exodus is exactly what you want to see from this studio. It has linear sequences that are filled with scary encounters and the sandbox environments word is filled with outposts, tunnels and buildings where you need to scavenge resources. Whether you like it or not, you will be forced to visit these locations if you want to upgrade your weapons or need ammo. It's these locations where you will experience some of the most terrifying moments in the game. To compliment all the game mechanics, 4A has created some of the most beautiful environments with fine attention to detail. Having said that, the game was a little buggy in some areas (at least on PC) which sometimes hindered your overall experience. Since you visit different locations thanks to Aurora, the game keeps things interesting as you visit different locations in rural Russia. The survival mechanics is probably our favourite feature in the game that adds to your panic when you're trying to defend yourself. Gunplay seems realistic as well since you are using scrappy guns that you have crafted with different components found in the world. These guns are not your run-of-the-mill weapons that don't have a kick to it. This particularly adds even more panic when skirmishing with ghouls, human enemies and beasts. © 4A Games Crafting works very similar to what you may have experienced in 'The Last of Us', each time you must crouch, open your bag with resources and craft whatever you need to complete your mission. You can craft medkits, weapons or pump up weapons since everything in Metro is quite analogue and nothing has advanced in terms of technology. Having said that, it's the best implementation of survival crafting we've seen since TLOU. If you're looking for a game that offers stealth and survival, Metro Exodus marries the two concepts perfectly. Metro Exodus has its own caveats with some bugs and some extremely long sequences where your character does nothing but stand, it's still one of the most exceptional experiences we've had in a very long time. The characters in the world are exceptional with great voice acting and a world that looks beautiful on RTX graphic cards. With deep and complex levels and incredibly scary monsters, Metro Exodus is the only post Apocalyptic game you need to play this year.

Brunch Date © Instagram/vickykaushal09 As casual as brunch is, it's good to look a little put together for a date. So, showing up in pajamas may not be the best idea.

  17. "Cum stains." Does even reading this phrase make you feel a little uncomfortable? Well, it shouldn't, because it's a completely natural thing, but it still does because of our societal conditioning. Imagine, if you're getting embarrassed just reading about it, how embarrassing it must be to talk about it openly. No wonder, we were never taught how to get rid of them. But don't worry, because post reading this article, you'll be ready to fight those pesky little white stains. Here is a 5-step guide that will help you get rid of semen stains from your clothes and sheets: © Getty Images 1. Step one is to not let it set. Use your finger to remove the semen from the fabric. Use it from the side as a scraper, and not on it. Rubbing it will just make it worse. Use some water to wash off the remaining stain quickly, before it sets. 2. Use some detergent to rub the remaining stain, and wash it off with water. In most cases, this should be enough. © Getty Images 3. If the stain is still visible, try using a little bit of dishwasher soap/liquid, with a cleaning sponge. Rub it firmly but gently till it's not visible anymore. © Getty Images 4. If the stain is still there, take a little bit of baking soda and rub on it for about 30 seconds or so, and wash it off with water. © Getty Images 5. Now ideally, it should be gone by this point, but if it turns out to be a little white devil that just won't let go, you need to use some spot cleaning techniques or enzyme cleaners that are available in the market. However, be careful while using them on coloured clothes, because excessive exposure may result in colour bleeding. Pro-tip: Never use hot/warm water to wash semen stains. Semen will get coagulated and stick even more to the fabric fibre under hot water. Always use cold water for the best results.
  18. We're sure that so far you've got your grooming basics right and you're most probably washing your face at least once a day and using a moisturizer (if you're not, you should definitely read this). But apart from that, there is one essential grooming product that men fail to add to their grooming kit that can change their skins for good. A BB Cream. © Getty Images South Korean beauty and grooming secrets are a treasure and should be adapted because have you seen these guys age? They never do. A BB Cream, a South Korean discovery is that one product you should definitely have in your grooming kit. BB creams also known as blemish balms aim to blur out imperfections whilst also taking care of pigmentation, oil control and hydrating skin simultaneously. It also gives the benefit of sun protection, oil control and an anti-ageing in one cream. © Getty Images It's also an easy remedy to cover scars, blemishes and skin discolouration like an Instagram filter, except this work in IRL being a product squished inside a tube. © Getty Images They might look like it's a feminine product, but they also come in unisex packaging. Use a BB cream next time before a big date to hide the bugging pimples, scars and blemishes. It really makes a difference.
  19. It's just been a week since Respawn Entertainment launched 'Apex Legends' and the game has found success in just a matter of days. It's a free-to-play Battle Royale game that is giving games like PUBG and Fortnite a run for its money. Respawn has now revealed that the game has hit 25 million total players and had "well over" 2 million concurrent players during the weekend. © YouTube To put things into perspective, 'Fortnite' took four months to achieve these numbers after its launch. At the moment, 'Fortnite' has over 200 million players and 8.3 million concurrent players which is a huge number for any game. This is partly because of the game can also be played on iOS and Android devices. © YouTube The studio is now using this achievement as an opportunity to promote the game's roadmap including new goodies for players for Valentine's Day. The company is also going to launch a paid Battle Pass next month that will work similarly to Fortnite's subscription programme. © Respawn Entertainment 'Apex Legends' builds on the Titanfall series and lore; which has been generally well-received amongst players. It uses the same combat mechanics with Battle Royale essentials such as looting gear, weapons and ammo. However, the game sets itself apart from other games, thanks to different characters that have different abilities. The game's marketing has also helped the game gain success due to its surprise launch and support from streamers like Shroud and Dr DisRespect. The game also does not implement any play-to-win micro transactions which make the game accessible to everyone for free. Have you been playing 'Apex Legends'? Follow our tips and tricks for getting your first win in the game.
  20. Let's talk about sports and grooming going hand in hand for a second. Sports is an intense field and if you engage with it, it leaves you all sweaty and messed up. However, some men know how to clean up well even on the field and even after a long and tiresome match they still look on point. So here is list of Indian sports men that really know their grooming men. 1. Ishant Sharma © Getty Images While Ishant Sharma might have been punished for having long hair in school, he's really turned it around as an adult. His shoulder length mane adds a certain character to his personality. Imagine Ishant Sharma without this hair! Well, we can't either. 2. Virat Kohli © Getty Images Not that Virat Kohli didn't look great before his days with Anushka Sharma, but we feel since she has stepped into his life, he's really understood the importance of grooming, maintaining the perfect hairstyle and a beard style that looks like a million bucks on him. 3. Hardik Pandya © Getty Images Now, we know that he's received a lot of flak recently for his controversial 'Koffee With Karan' comments, however the guy does clean up well. We can't really question that, can we? 4. Sunil Chhetri © Getty Images Apart from being the striker/winger and captains for both the Indian Super League side Bengaluru FC and the Indian national football team, Sunil Chhetri also sports a stunning haircut. 5. Sandesh Jhingan © Getty Images Sandesh Jhingan is the defender for Kerala Blasters FC of the Indian Super League and the Indian football team. He is a good example of showing that even messy hair can look really good if you're comfortable in your skin. 6. K.L.Rahul © MensXP K.L Rahul is another cricketer we wish we got grooming lessons from. His look is very cleverly put together, so it looks effortless and clean.
  21. That time of the year is finally here. The Grammys Red Carpet remains the most anticipated event when it comes to Hollywood fashion. The Grammys have been giving us some of the most iconic fashion moments over the years. This year, they definitely did rise up to the expectations and didn't disappoint us. With all the sizzling controversies involving Ariana Grande, Drake and Cardi B and her pianist stealing the whole show, the 2019 Grammys is already on its way to becoming the most talked about event of the year. When it comes to fashion, the Grammys red carpet serves more looks than the Oscars because of its younger audience and nominees. Being fashion icons and believing in expression through dressing, pop artists tend to experiment with fashion more which equals to more drama on the red carpet. The men of the entertainment business don't shy away from a good head turning look either. Have a look at the 12 quirkiest looks form the Grammys 2019 Red Carpet that turned heads for all the right reasons: 1. Ricky Rebel © Getty Images Let's talk about the one sparking the most talks, shall we? Singer Ricky Rebel walked down the red carpet in a reversible pro-Trump jacket from designer Andre Soriano. The jacket had 'Keep America Great' text which a play on Donald Trump's political slogan on one side and 'Trump 2020' on the other. The outfit has already sparked tons of negative talk about its political statement and about the upcoming US elections next year. 2. Leon Bridges © Getty Images A name in soul music, Leon Bridges sported a custom made 2-piece set by designer Emily Bode. The mustard-coloured corduroy set was covered in little drawings that referenced his home state of Texas and his own music as well. That's one hell of a customization, we say! 3. Post Malone © Getty Images If there's one thing to know about Post Malone, he loves his flashy suits. They are a statement on their own and quirky as hell. This year was no less, as the singer sported a salmon coloured bedazzled suit covered with silver star embellishments, which he topped off with matching pink cowboy boots. This look was put together by costume designer Catherine Hahn, who is one of the artist's favourite designers. Pink is the new black, we see! 4. Kyle Trewartha and Michael Trewartha © Getty Images Like the Fiji water girl at the Oscars, the twins with the silver hair were the Grammy mystery people this year. The twins who are Kyle Trewartha and Michael Trewartha dazzled the red carpet in designer wear which was perfectly layered and stormy weather ready. Yes, they look like The Chainsmokers. No, they're not them. The ice twins definitely do have style, though. 5. Ben Harper © Getty Images If there's one way to ditch the boring black tie and go full ham, Ben Harper should be your guide. Ben Harper did enter full bedazzle mode in a jacket showing off yellow sequined paisley motifs worn with a broad-brim hat. The Nike basketball shoes add an extra edge to the outfit. Very country, yet very sporty. An interesting combination. 6. Young Thug © Getty Images If there's one way to stand out, it has to be to get in with the fluorescent trend. And since bright neon colours always make their mark in the athleisure world, it has to have an active presence on the red carpet too, right? Young Thug stood out from the crowd in a fluorescent lime green hoodie paired with a red cropped leather jacket. The rapper paired it with beige pants and red sneakers for the too-cool-to-care look and we lowkey dig it. 7. Swae Lee © Getty Images Popular singer Swae Lee left his mark on the red carpet with his out of the box fashion choice for this year's Grammys. Seen in a laced see-through shirt paired with studded M.X By Maxine Simoens pants and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, Swae stole the show with his peek-a-boo outfit! 8. Jaden Smith © Getty Images Jaden Smith always manages to make heads turn at every red carpet ever. His unapologetic street-inspired style is pretty much what is expected of him. He didn't disappoint this time around with a black hoodie, a multi-coloured graphic jacket and chain detailing all over his upper and lower body. No one can pull off a Jaden Smith exclusive better than Jaden himself! 9. Fantastic Negrito © Getty Images The American singer wore a customized red suit with colourful swatches of fabric making up the pockets. A silver necklace with two fish hung from his neck which he mentions used to be a belt buckle. His whole outfit was apparently inspired by 'upcycling', which is using discarded material to design something that is of a higher quality than the original. 10. Kane Brown © Getty Images Singer Kane Brown doesn't shy away from some print. Seen sporting a Versace black and gold printed shirt with a Versace blazer with the same print on the inner lining as well. Donning daring prints sure seems like a bold fashion statement but Kane wears them like a champion! 11. Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith and Flea © Getty Images Members of the popular rock band 'Red Hot Chili Peppers' Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, and Flea turned up at the red carpet and stole a lot of attention for their attire. The perfect mix of eccentric, bold and daring, their outfits were downright rocking. With Anthony's all floral suit, Chad's floral shirt and multi-coloured sneakers to Flea's jacquard pants and hat, they did bring the heat with them. 12. Hector Buitrago and Andrea Echeverri © Getty Images Colombian rock band Aterciopelados members Hector Buitrago and Andrea Echeverri came dressed as the Grammy award itself. Hector's outfit being a spin on an album cover itself with gold star motifs all over was interesting while Andrea's outfit was actually him being a real-life version of a Grammy award complete with a headgear and buttons representing the iconic gramophone shape was an eye-catcher. The award or rather Andrea himself was addressed to their band Aterciopelados indicating that they were expecting a definite win. These few were amongst the many others who made an appearance at the Grammy Awards 2019 and gave fashion a new definition. You have our attention, Hollywood!
  22. There isn't much that hasn't been said about the greatness of Mahendra Singh Dhoni as a player. He is one of the greatest batsman, knows how to win games for his country, is the most successful captain of the Indian cricket team and probably has the best reflexes as a wicket-keeper too! But MS Dhoni, in person, is equally phenomenal. From running a charity for the betterment of the financially backward students to showing his support to the Indian Army by holding friendly matches, the proceedings from which contribute to the better conditions of the 'jawans' at border, Dhoni has checked all the boxes for the prerequisites of being India's favourite son. Patriotism for the former captain is deep ingested in his heart. Prided with the position of Lieutenant Colonel of the Indian Army, Dhoni had once said: Once my cricket career is over, I would definitely like to serve in the army”. The love for his country seems to be guiding every action of the cricketing star as on Sunday, during the third and final T20I match between India and New Zealand at Hamilton, Dhoni's (almost) reflexive actions prevented the Indian tricolour from staying on the floor. Fan gives flag to Dhoni...!! pic.twitter.com/yxlNzXcsZ4 — Videos Shots (@videos_shots) February 10, 2019 Watch as one of Dhoni's millions of fans was able to rush past the security and onto the field just so he could fall on his idol's feet in love and respect. The fan happened to have a small Indian flag with him which Dhoni instantly picked up as the fan dove to the cricketer's feet, preventing the disrespect it would have meant. What's more is that while other sportspersons get finicky about fans running towards when with an object (which is totally understandable), Dhoni greeted the fan in white properly before he ran away clearly overflowing with joy as the security guard followed him in pursuit. Used to praising MSD for something or the other almost every single day, people once again took to Twitter, this time, to commend Dhoni's patriotic gesture: Dhoni never keep Flag on his helmet as he had to put it down for sometimes sums up this â£ðð»!!

  23. The quotations for this story was taken from an interview originally conducted by Ravi Gupta for MensXP Hindi. Love is said to be the biggest blessing of life, but when it happens to be one-sided, the same can turn into someone's biggest nightmare. On one hand, where love is supposed to make us feel like a million bucks, a love gone wrong can make someone lose faith in life altogether. While love makes someone feel confident and alive, it can turn someone's life into a curse for not feeling the same way. People have a gazillion ways of showing someone that they love them, but when that love changes into an obsession, the very feeling of affection begins to spread like acid within a person's heart, turning everything in its way into a living nightmare. Crazed by the thought of attaining the beloved, people begin to lose sight of all reason and logic, and give into their inner demons. (c) Caters News Agency Such is the story of Pramodini, who was caught between the love and obsession of an army officer. Odisha's Pramodini Roul 'Rani' was 16-years-old when an Army man changed her life forever. This man wasn't her prince charming by any right, but had come as the devil in disguise. The paramilitary soldier attacked Rani by throwing acid all over her face and body because she had rejected his marriage proposal. In a matter of seconds, everything faded into nothingness - right from her skin to her confidence, everything melted away. The beauty that brought young men to their knees and numerous suitors to her doors, was replaced by scars and painful tears. 2009 turned into the year that not only saw “friends” and “well wishers” turn their backs on her, she lost her eyesight in the attack and was left bedridden for years to come. What was left of that fateful incident was a shadowy life and her widowed mother. (c) Pramodini & Saroj Rani had been in 12th standard, and an army camp had been set up close to her college. That's how the paramilitary soldier first saw Rani. He fell for her in no time, and went to her house with a marriage proposal. Since Rani was merely sixteen years old and underage, her family declined the proposal. Rani was unaware of this entire development all along, and was caught unaware when her life went for a toss within moments! One day while Rani was cycling back home from college along with her cousin brother, the soldier came riding on a bike with his friend and poured acid on Rani's head. Rani recalls that day and says, “the pain that I experienced then is inexplicable. We had registered an FIR after the attack and the police took my statement. But that soldier began to threaten us, and we had to withdraw the case eventually.” Remembering those dreadful years of her life after the attack, Rani says, “one-sided love and obsession took away everything from me. Beauty, dance, happiness and even eyesight, that demon didn't leave me with a reason to live. My relatives spoke of feeding me poison, and even I used to wonder what was the point in living. Thinking about love was equally impossible. But Saroj has given me second lease of life filled with happiness. Now I don't hate Valentine's Day, or men, instead I love it all more than ever.” (c) Facebook Between her surgeries and stay in the hospital, Pramodini never imagined there could come a time when she would find love standing at her door. Rani and Pramod Kumar Sahoo first saw each other during one of Rani's many visits to the hospital. Pramod was working as a medical representative at the time, and was a friend of one of the nurses who was treating Rani at a private hospital. She introduced them, and soon every time Saroj visited the hospital, he would check on Rani. Over time as their funds got exhausted, the hospital began to push for Rani's discharge, stating that she was not showing any improvements and her chances of getting better were low. When Saroj heard about this update, he took it as a personal challenge to help Rani get better. He began to care for her like an earnest friend, and even had to give up his job in the process. Saroj shares, “I decided to help Rani get better for the sake of humanity. I began to give her more time than I gave myself. I helped her walk around and kept instilling confidence in her every time she gave up. At that time she needed the support of a good friend, as much as the medicines - something she wasn't getting at the hospital or from her family.” (c) Pramodini & Saroj After spending a couple of years with Rani, Saroj slowly began to fall for her and wanted to confess his love. All the while his friends discouraged him to make the move and said things like, “you'll get such pretty girls, and you're falling for her. You've lost your mind.” But Saroj knew what he wanted and he decided to follow his heart. He proposed to Rani on 14th February 2016, and decided to share their lives with each other, and move beyond what friends, family and society had to say. Talking about her life with Saroj, Rani says that, “love is very powerful. Nothing can stand in its way. Saroj's love helped to heal me from within, something that had become necessary. Life would have been no fun with 80% burns and 20% eyesight, if not for Saroj's company. I feel alive once more because of him.” Today that couple is in a live-in relationship, and share a rented apartment together. Getting married isn't Saroj's priority now, since he wants to save and gather money for a few more immediate surgeries that Rani needs. Once that is taken care of, they plan to get married and settle down sometime in the next two years. (c) Pramodini & Saroj However, this togetherness has come at a cost for Saroj. Since his family didn't approve of his relationship with Rani, Saroj has had to settle for a life with the love of his life without his family's blessings. “As of now my mother and a few other family members haven't been able to accept Rani completely. So it wouldn't be right to take her home right now. My mother keeps suggesting that I stay away from her, reminds me about the society's empty talks, but I keep such useless talks away from my life.” Together, the couple today runs the #StopAcidAttacks campaign that raises awareness and raises funds for acid attack survivors. Rani and Saroj only have one message for the society, “we need to stop blaming and ostracising the victims instead of holding the perpetrators accountable for their actions. (c) Pramodini & Saroj Saroj's love and constant support has given Rani a second chance at life, one that is full of possibilities and a better future together. At a time when Rani had almost given up, Saroj's love brought her back and gave her the strength to fight back and seize life by the collar. What an inspiration the couple has been!
  24. In an avalanche of political biopics this year, there is a new surprise entry which no one knew about. After 'The Accidenal Prime Minister' and 'Thackeray' creating a major buzz in the nation, the trailer for a biopic on Rahul Gandhi dropped today, completely unannounced. Before we even begin to dissect it, let's just have a look at it first. The trailer follows a young Rahul swimming while his grandmother Indira Gandhi looks upon him dotingly. It is established that he shares a very warm relationship with his grandmom and his father and the death of the PM affects him more than others. 'My Name Is Raga' Trailer Out: Rahul Gandhi's Biopic Unveils First Look #MyNameIsRaGa @RahulGandhi @INCIndia @WithPGV @rahulgandhi2020 @rupeshpaul @priyankac19 @BJP4India @AjayLalluINC @SaralPatel @Chiranjeev_INC https://t.co/jOavO0AOLD pic.twitter.com/erMQskqHap — News World India (@NewsWorldIN) February 10, 2019 The trailer then shows a caricature (if I may call it that) of ex PM Manmohan Singh and an agitated Modi Ji as well. We see the grown up leader form of Rahul Gandhi who ends up winning hearts of everyone. The trailer ends on a very vague note and while the acting and dialogue delivery is quite questionable, we wonder why couldn't the direction be a bit more serious? This looks more like a parody and that's exactly what social media is wondering about. Brace yourself, biopic on Rahul Gandhi is on its way. The trailer is terribly cheap, it's as poor as his political ability.. Such a third class making & what a director is chosen who has made legendary movies in the past. ðð #MyNameIsRaGa @RahulGandhi https://t.co/gUzml5VEe1 — Vikram Joshi (@vikramajoshi) February 9, 2019 Trailer starts with "tumne hume jeetna sikhaya hai"ð Is this movie made by @RahulGandhi haters to troll him under the pretense of a bio pic?ð#MyNameIsRaGa https://t.co/28x8JqR24d — Voice Noteswali Krutika ð¹ð (@certifiedKruti) February 9, 2019 People are wondering if this is some sort of an elaborate joke and if the movie is releasing on 1st April. When is it getting released 1st April 2019 it seemsðð https://t.co/OeKTyveCgM — RAKESH KUMAR SINGH (@Hanibals) February 10, 2019 Bahut ho ghatiya cast and dialogue delivery hai. Full paisa barbaad trailer and would be movie. Ye @RahulGandhi ko badnaam karne ki saazish hai. — तनà¥à¤®à¤¯ à¤à¥à¤¨ (@tanmaygoon) February 9, 2019 The man deserves better than this for sure. Let's just hope the movie is better than this trailer.
  25. Have you ever wondered why despite following every tip and trick provided by your favourite bodybuilder on social media, you're still not achieving your goal of emulating their look? You're still buying supplements and cranking it out endlessly in the gym like they're asking you to, but you're getting nada. Could it be possible that among their oh, so many gems of wisdom, they are leaving out some really crucial advice? Listed below are 5 major muscle-building secrets that your favourite bodybuilder is probably not telling you: 1) Energy Balance This is hands down the most important factor when it comes to changing your body composition. Calories are king and they decide your body composition. If your goal is to lose fat, then you need to be in a negative energy balance aka calorie deficit. If your goal is to gain muscle, you need to be in a positive energy balance aka calorie surplus. © Pixabay 2) Flexible Dieting "Carbs from white rice is the same as the carbs from an ice-cream" You don't have to eat all your meals with rice, chicken and broccoli. You can have a wide variety of foods in your diet to complete your calories per day. Sustainable dieting can help you keep you happy mentally. 3) Meal Frequency You don't have to consume 7 meals per day to grow muscle. Muscle growth directly comes from training and nutrition augments it. In simple terms, you need to train hard and be in a calorie surplus. 4) Progressive Overload You must progress in the gym over time. This is done by adding a set or a rep or by adding load per muscle. Volume (sets x load x reps) is the main key to grow new muscle tissue. © Pixabay 5) Training Period Muscle growth takes a huge-ass time to grow, as you need to give years and years to achieve the look you've always wanted. Don't expect overnight changes. So, there you go. I'm sure you weren't expecting this but honestly, it's what matters the most. These are the very basics you need to keep in mind before putting your body through a significant change. And I am sorry, I did not tell you that BCAAs absolutely DON'T matter.
