  2. Nailing a thick, full beard is surely a grooming trend, but in no way does it define masculinity. For ages grooming trends like clean shaven facial hair and body hair have been attached with a toxic idea of being “less manly”. But what has manliness got to do with how you look or act? It’s about time we became more inclusive and blurred these beliefs. Taking inspiration from these Indian actors is a good way to get started! __ECOMLOOKS__2862__ __ECOMLOOKS__2863__ __ECOMLOOKS__2864__ __ECOMLOOKS__2865__ __ECOMLOOKS__2866__ __ECOMLOOKS__2867__ __ECOMLOOKS__2868__ The Bottomline Take a cue and don’t let the toxic beliefs stop you from rocking a grooming trend as good as this!

  3. Apart from being an immensely talented actor, Mahesh Babu is a legit style icon for many people in this country. Being the hugely successful star that he is, he has often given us some astounding style statements, time and time again. © Instagram/urstrulymahesh When it comes to his watches though, he is on a different playing field altogether. We take a sneak peek into his watch collection and pick some really tasteful timepieces. Apart from some insanely expensive pieces, we also found a modern-day classic, that his fans as well as watch enthusiasts on a budget, can easily afford. © Viral Bhayani Here are 6 exquisite watches from his collection. Piaget Polo 45 Titanium Chronograph - Rs 12.50 Lakhs © Viral Bhayani Piaget is a Swiss watchmaker that not many Indian celebrities actually wear. Only people who are really into watches know of this brand and appreciate their offerings. This just goes on to show, how seriously Mahesh takes his watches. Breguet Marine Chrono Platinum - Rs 40.93 Lakhs © Viral Bhayani Another watchmaker that is hardly seen on Indian celebrities, is Brequet. They are known all over the world for making some classic dress watches, with some really impressive complications. Even their sports watch, which tends to be a bit cheaper than most dress watches, is a fairly complicated piece. Hence the price that we see. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Diver - Rs 14.36 Lakhs © Audemars Piguet Finally, a watchmaker that even regular, non-watch people in India know about. Audemars Piguet has become a brand that every watch collector or watch enthusiast worth his or her salt just has to have. Their Royal Oak series of watch is as classic as they get. The Diver Royal Oak is a really dope sports watch, and truly something to behold. Vacheron Constantin Overseas - Rs 16 Lakhs © Instagram/urstrulymahesh Vacheron Constantin is one of the oldest watchmakers who are still exclusively in the business of making watches. Heck, they are one of the oldest watchmakers around. Their designs tend to be very neat, and precise, with complications implemented very neatly and discretely. The silver-coloured Overseas, is one of their most affordable pieces. Vacheron Constantin Historiques Ultrafine 1968 - Rs 45 Lakhs © Instagram/urstrulymahesh Another Vacheron that Mahesh Babu has is the 1968 Historiques Ultrafine. This is as classic as a watch can get. Apparently, President Donald Trump too has one and is a fan of the watchmakers. The watch has a golden case and has a very fine calibre, that is housed in a proper square-shaped case. Casio G-Shock G441 - Rs 7,000 © Instagram/urstrulymahesh This may come as a surprise for many, but apparently, Mahesh Babu has quite a good collection of G-Shocks. He can be seen wearing some or the other watch from the Japanese watchmakers in his films, interviews and other public appearances. The G441 is one of the most repeated watches from his collection.

  4. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) recently revealed their annual list of grades in which the members of the Indian cricket team are allotted and get paid accordingly. There are four basic categories and associated money attached to them: ALERT: BCCI announces annual player retainership 2020-21 - #TeamIndia (Senior Men) for the period from October 2020 to September 2021. Payment structure: Grade A+ : INR 7 Cr Grade A : INR 5 Cr Grade B : INR 3 Cr Grade C : INR 1 Crhttps://t.co/WgtmO7pIOv pic.twitter.com/ycnPcXPYJu — BCCI (@BCCI) April 15, 2021 A+ Category: Rs. 7 Crore A Category: Rs. 5 Crore B Category: Rs. 3 Crore C Category: Rs. 1 Crore Players are put in their respective categories based on their performances in the past year and how much value did they add to the Men in Blue’s winning ways with their efforts on the field. However, upon looking at some of the names being allotted too high or too low in the categories, the fans of the Men in Blue weren’t too happy with the final decision taken by the Indian cricket board. Here is the rise and fall of 5 Indian cricketers’ salaries this year that has confused and angered the fans: Bhuvneshwar Kumar (Demoted From A Category To B Category): View this post on Instagram Troubled with a severe injury that he picked during the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League, Kumar was expected to make his return to competitive cricket no sooner than IPL 2021. However, the pacer not only recovered faster than expected but also made quite the impact during India’s home series against England. Nonetheless, his contract was reduced from A category (Rs. 5 Crore) to B category (Rs. 3 Crore) from 2020 to 2021, respectively. This is really pathetic...I mean,placing such a fantastic player like Bhuvi amongst players like umesh isn't just done..Bhuvi made a great comeback in int'l cricket.Also he can bowl in all 3 formats but at the contrast Ishant recieved grade b contract being only test player — Tarini Prasad Beura (@I_m_Tarini) April 15, 2021@BCCI Bhuvi in B grade.. Absurd.. Are u guys serious? Doped — Ezhil (@Ezhil_ezzy) April 15, 2021@BhuviOfficial should deserve A+ , I don't understand what made u to put him in B #VikrantRona #KicchaSudeep #kotigobba3 — Bigg Boss Kiccha (@BiggBossKiccha1) April 15, 2021@BhuviOfficial will be soon at a better grade-- the place he deserves🇮🇳 — Tweeter07 (@Tweeter074) April 15, 2021Wriddhiman Saha Remains In B Category: View this post on Instagram Despite not being able to perform consistently in the longest format of the game, and being replaced by Rishabh Pant as the main wicket-keeper for the squad across red and white ball cricket, Wriddhiman Saha’s position in the B Category remains intact and will allow him a massive Rs. 3 Crore paycheque for this year. Saha and mayank should be in C grade...shreyas iyer and washington sundar should be in B grade — Rajdeep Deshmukh (@rajdeepd9) April 15, 2021Not an hater, but what is Saha doing in any of these lists???? Don’t even remember his contribution in any format — Nikhil (@RightAbveYou) April 16, 2021Like seriously saha in b🤣 — Iamsanskruti (@iamsanskruti) April 15, 2021Yuzvendra Chahal (Demoted From B Category To C Category): View this post on Instagram Regardless of the fact that Yuzvendra Chahal did not have the best cricketing season between 2019 and 2020, he still remains a top selection as a spinner for the Virat Kohli squad. Although all-rounders such as Axar Patel and Washington Sundar have done well to show their talent on both sides of the pitch and might endanger Chahal’s spot in the roster in the series to come. Iyer and Chahal deserve Grade B contract.....Iyer is the slotted no. 4 for India and Chahal is the lead spinner in limited overs — Mohit Babu (@mohitbabu_iitp) April 15, 2021Why lower grade contracts for @BhuviOfficial, @yuzi_chahal, @ShreyasIyer15?? @SGanguly99 u did not get ur commission or just overdose of elements?? — Idontcare (@Idontca49297118) April 15, 2021Chahal in grade C — 🇮🇳Pradip Das🇮🇳 (@Pradip_me2012) April 15, 2021Chahal deserves better than C grade — Mohit Bohra (@mohitbohra07) April 15, 2021yuzi in grade c?????????????? — Aayush (@Ayushadhikari15) April 15, 2021Shreyas Iyer Remains In C Category: View this post on Instagram Currently struggling to recover from a severely injured shoulder from the first ODI between India and England at Pune, Shreyas Iyer had established his footing as a legitimate middle order batsman in Team India, in limited overs cricket. His growth as a batsman and as a leader was also seen by the fans, especially during the 2020 season of the Indian Premier Leaguue. But despite rising through the ranks in the India batting order, Iyer’s pay-grade remains the same as last year- Rs. 1 Crore. #shreyasiyer deserves better🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ — Rahull Vaidyaa (@RahullVaidyaa) April 15, 2021@ShreyasIyer15 deserves better! — Krunal Thakkar (@KrunallThakkar) April 15, 2021Shreyas in c!!..he definitely deserves better!!🤦‍♀️#shreyasiyer — Rahull Vaidyaa (@RahullVaidyaa) April 15, 2021Move Iyer, hanuma, siraj to grade B atleast — BLACK PANTHER (@itzz__Black) April 15, 2021T Natarajan Goes Uncapped: View this post on Instagram Despite making a phenomenal debut across all formats of international debut during India’s tour of Australia, T Natarajan was snubbed from a guaranteed contract with the national team. This move by the BCCI specially stings the fans when Axar Patel, who played in just one Test series (albeit a lot more effective than Natarajan), already got a C category contract. #axarpatel played 1 test series & got contract whereas #natarajan who played in #Australia series & #England series had no contract. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️#DeepakChahar not played single game in last year & still holds contract. Partiality at peaks. Nattu deserves the contract.. — NelloreReviews (@nellore_reviews) April 15, 2021Natarajan......? This is not correct way of cricket..... Revised the structure..... @BCCI — Guna1402 (@Guna14021) April 16, 2021Where is Natarajan....???? Y he is not in grade c — Kavin l (@Kavinl6) April 15, 2021No Natrajan, very harsh that too with T20 world cup around the corner...

  5. Beards are notoriously fickle—from maintaining the right style and length to dealing with your genes. And while growing up managing facial hair wasn’t exactly a part of the curriculum either. So making decisions about shaving can open you up to a plethora of grooming questions. What kind of trimmer should I use? How often should I shave? Which beard oil is right for me? Am I using the right kind of shampoo to clean my beard? And why, oh God why, does it never stop itching? Overwhelming, isn’t it? And finally, when you get it right, something goes wrong. Probably because of these bad beard habits you didn’t know you were making. __ECOMLOOKS__2857__ __ECOMLOOKS__2858__ __ECOMLOOKS__2859__ __ECOMLOOKS__2860__ __ECOMLOOKS__2861__ The BottomlineThese habits may seem harmless but their impact is not. By making small changes in your grooming routine, you can achieve the beard you’ve always wanted and save yourself from troubles like beard dandruff, itching and acne.

  6. Remember the popular scene from the Bollywood rom-com Pyaar Ka Punchnama where an irritated Chiku (Nushrat Bharucha) asks Anshu (Kartik Aaryan) to CONCENTRATE, as she explains him different shades of pink? Raise your hand if you relate to an Anshu and don't know about the different pink or pastel shades. Also, raise your other hand if you have been calling all checkered patterns in different shapes and sizes as checks. Now, if both your hands are up give yourself a high-five, because you are not alone. Men’s wardrobe often is stuffed with shirts and trousers in all types of checks, but they perhaps don’t know what a particular pattern is called. Here’s our guide on different kinds of checkered patterns and ways to incorporate it in your staple wardrobe. 1. Graph CheckGraph check is the most basic type of check pattern that has evenly shaped checks formed by thin bands of a single colour on a light fabric looking just like a graph paper. A type, we feel, is soothing to look at and is perfect for the summer season. Add a laid-back vibe to your weekend look by bringing in this cotton shirt to your collection. Accentuate your look with dark coloured trousers or chino shorts and loafers. __ECOMPRODUCT__1402__ 2. Plaid Or TartanPlaid, also called Tartan has bold colourful stripes criss crossing each other, usually in muted tones. Men often call anything plaid as flannel but flannel is the name of the soft woven fabric on which plaid pattern is made. With lockdowns and quarantining making lazy dressing more socially acceptable, opting for something like this super stylish and comfortable night suit set would be an investment. __ECOMPRODUCT__496__ 3. HoundstoothHoundstooth, a popular pattern often spotted in furnishing upholstery, suit fabrics and long coats is a pattern formed by broken or uneven checks that resemble a dog’s tooth. If you are kicked to own something in this very English checkered pattern, a bomber jacket would be a valuable addition to your staple wardrobe. __ECOMPRODUCT__785__ 4. GinghamTraditionally used for making table linens and aprons, Gingham check has a full pattern of checks in two or more small similar sized squares – one colour is always white and the other often is a shade of red, green, or blue. Considering the ever rising COVID cases around the nation, investing in bandana masks would be a wise choice and a fun way to bring a little bit of gingham to your everyday dressing. __ECOMPRODUCT__1403__ 5. Shepherd’s CheckThis pattern is quite similar to gingham check but is usually a black and white pattern. Shepherd check is often set against twill fabric. Give a summer spin to your shepherd check dressing with this long cotton shirt. Pair this piece with ripped denim and casual sneakers and rock this pick of the season with confidence and style. __ECOMPRODUCT__1404__ 6. Argyle ChecksUsually spotted in socks and sweaters, this is an allover pattern of diamonds overlapping on a woven fabric. An evergreen pattern, anything in an argyle check can work as a staple piece in your wardrobe. Consider this blue argyle checked shirt featuring a cutaway collar and curved hem to add oodles of style to your casual look. Layer this shirt with a classic black t-shirt and washed denims to steal the show. __ECOMPRODUCT__1405__ 7. Pin Or Mini CheckSimilar to gingham and shepherd check, this pattern has pin-sized thick stripes crossing each other very closely, forming checks that look like dots from a distance. If you don’t wanna fully commit to mini check pieces, consider this smart shirt with mini check patch detailing. From a night party to summer lunch dates, this shirt teamed well with your favourite denims will suit all your occasions well. __ECOMPRODUCT__1406__ 8. Madras CheckSimilar to that of plaid and tartan, Madras check is a pattern with uneven checks formed by thick bands of bright colours crossing each other. A shirt in Madras check can do wonders to your layer dressing game. Throw it on an all-white outfit to work a summer look or an all-black outfit to make the look more evening friendly. __ECOMPRODUCT__1407__ 9. Windowpane CheckWindowpane checkered patterns have thin stripes crossing each other to form patterns of pane on a window. Add dollops of brightness to your quarantine wardrobe or a boring Google meet with this red windowpane check shirt. A peppy number that's handy across the calendar year, we feel. __ECOMPRODUCT__1408__ The BottomlineChecks make for an essential part of a man’s wardrobe and a little knowledge about what your favourite checkered pattern is called will only make your staple wardrobe building process easy. The names of how many of these ‘checks’ did you already know? Tell us in the comments below. Explore More View the full article
  7. The year 2021 looks destined to be a promising year for movie buffs as they will have a chance to watch a list of exciting Hollywood films that include The Matrix 4, Fast & Furious 9, Conjuring 4, Mortal Kombat, A Quiet Place Part II and the latest Bond film, No Time to Die. However, amongst this very list is a movie of a certain Hollywood superstar, who refuses to age with time and still chooses to do his own stunts- the Mission Impossible star, Tom Cruise. The 58-year-old actor is set to return as US Navy's daredevil pilot Pete "Maverick" Mitchell in Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel to the 1986 American action drama film, Top Gun. © Pinterest Recently, it was announced that the movie's release date was shifted from June to November, and while fans may have been left disappointed for not seeing their hot-shot fighter jet pilot sooner, the wait is only going to make things a lot more sweeter. Amid the wait, we decided to make a list of things about Top Gun 2 that surely will get fans excited: 1. Maverick Returns as a Flight Instructor: © Cinemablend Decades after passing out as an ace pilot from the Top Gun, the US Navy's most elite flight school, Tom Cruise's character Maverick returns to the training academy as a top-flight instructor. While we saw his exploits as a lethal fighter pilot in the first film, we cannot wait to explore how he trains and flies along his trainees to shoot down enemy planes in the sequel. 2. The Iceman-Maverick Rivalry: © DigitalTrends People who saw the first Top Gun movie know that movie revolved around the rivalry around characters Maverick (Cruise) and Iceman (Val Kilmer). Kilmer has been confirmed to return as Iceman in the second installment, and we cannot wait for them to take the competition to the next level while flying top-end fighter jets. 3. New Fighter Jets: © Twitter Maverick and the rest of the pilots flew in their F-14 Tomcat fighter jets in the first film. However, a lot has changed in the span of decades, and with the new movie trailer showcasing some mean machines ranging from Boeing F/A 18F Super Hornets and the mysterious SR-72 Darkstar aircraft, it sure looks like a visual treat. 4.

  8. In another episode of ‘relatives are equal to pareshaani’, a couple from Mumbai was given a sponsored honeymoon trip by a relative and they were later arrested at Hamad International Airport in July 2019 after Qatari authorities recovered 4.1kg hashish from their bag. The couple Mohommad Shareeq and his wife Oniba Kauser Shakeel Ahmed had gone for their honeymoon. Also, their honeymoon was sponsored by their relatives. However, they were unaware that the relative, Shareeq’s paternal aunt Tabassum Riyaz Quereshi was using them as drug carriers. © BCCL Qureshi who sponsored the trip had hidden around 4.1 Kg of hashish in their bags, claiming that it was tobacco that they should hand over to a friend in Doha. Not only this, the couple was also arrested by the authorities and despite their pleas, they were sentenced to 10 years in jail. Oniba also found out that she was pregnant and delivered a baby girl in jail last year. After the couple was sent to jail, Oniba’s father Shakeel Ahmed had written to NCB Director General Rakesh Asthana in September 27,2019. Only after this, the probe was started and the agency started looking into the case. © BCCL He wrote, "In his letter, Qureshi had said his daughter and son in law were deceived in the garb of a honeymoon package by a woman named Tabassum Riyaz Qureshi and her associate Nizam Kara. An NCB probe found the couple was trapped by a drug-running network infamous as the Kasargod syndicate.” Then, the Narcotics Control Bureau (/NCB) had then approached authorities in Qatar through diplomatic channels, and the couple was brought back, said KPS Malhotra, the agency's deputy director. However, the efforts made by the family finally paid off in January this year and the 10-year jail sentence was overturned by Qatar’s highest court. They returned to India and reached Mumbai with their daughter on Wednesday morning. View the full article
  9. Like most cricketers, Indian batting star, Rohit Sharma too has a taste for zany sneakers. Sometimes seen flaunting some quirky pairs on his Instagram feed, Rohit has time and again proved that he is no less than a sneakerhead. He is a role model on the field but a style icon off the field, to say the least. © Instagram/Rohit Sharma The reason why we are praising Rohit Sharma is that the talismanic skipper did something unique, during the recent IPL 2021 tournament. While the team's top priority is to focus on the competition, Rohit left no stone unturned in raising awareness about the environmental issues. What was commendable here was the way he did it. Yes, Rohit was seen wearing a pair of customised sneakers that were designed to spread a message about conserving the endangered species and saving the ocean. Take a look. © Twitter/Rohit Sharma Rohit used his spikes as a reason to share the important message. The pair is customised by Adidas and the cricket shoes spoke about the plastic-free ocean. These quirky shoes attracted all the attention to his sneakers and fans couldn't stop raving about the pair on Twitter. In fact, Rohit took to Twitter, saying that this move was more than just a game for him. He wrote "The other cause that’s extremely close to my heart. This one hits hard! This is a hundred percent in our control to reverse. I take my cause with me while I go out and do what I love! The other cause that’s extremely close to my heart. This one hits hard! This is a hundred percent in our control to reverse. I take my cause with me while I go out and do what I love! (1/2) pic.twitter.com/ZF5xP1zy9k — Rohit Sharma (@ImRo45) April 14, 2021 He also mentioned in the next tweet that he would continue to have a conversation about it and in the end, said 'let's get our oceans healthy again' © Instagram/Rohit Sharma Earlier, he also took to Instagram and posted about another pair that he wore a couple of days ago, which spoke about the conservation of the great One-Horned Rhinoceros or the Indian Rhino, as we call it. He wrote "Yesterday when I walked on to the field it was more than just a game for me. Playing cricket is my dream and help make this world a better place is a cause we all need to work towards and It was special for me to take a cause so close to my heart with me on the field while I do what I love. Every step matters." View this post on Instagram The shoes made a bold statement and this move would help people understand the vision to save the species that are getting extinct. After this initiative, people started praising Rohit for his efforts. Take a look at some of these tweets. Big thank you to you Rohit for recognising the problems the oceans face right now. — Rohan Shrestha (@RohanShrestha) April 14, 2021Proud of You Anna #RohitSharma pic.twitter.com/Z6RFy7O0qe — Adesh Ajju (@AjjuAdesh) April 14, 2021You are inspiration to all of us. Spreading social Awareness messages to fan. And giving practical example of anything can possibly if fight back hard. — Vinayak (@Vinayak_b45) April 14, 2021Here are some reactions to his 'Save The Rhino' sneakers. Hey @KP24 sir look at @ImRo45 shoes ... Save the rhino 🦏 Pic credit- Ritika mam pic.twitter.com/Gouj5OdU2c — Mandeep Singh Dahiya (@dahiyamandeep18) April 9, 2021The great mams boots last night in the @IPL opener. @ImRo45 continually playing for a cause - SAVING RHINOS! 🏽🦏 pic.twitter.com/aGTveMOWBh — Kevin Pietersen🦏 (@KP24) April 10, 2021Can't be more grateful that influencers as big as you are taking steps to conserve the ever diminishing wildlife and nature on such a grand stage. I salute you.🏻 By the way, I would love to buy those shoes, is there any chance I could get them? — Siddharth Patel (@SPatel357) April 10, 2021 View the full article
  10. Yes, Virat Kohli is a once-in-a-generation player, and yes the man seems to have instilled some significant changes within the Indian cricket team’s dressing room, especially with regards to the fitness of his teammates. It is also true that the title ‘Run Machine’ that Kohli got after doing some phenomenal work at the pitch for over a decade now, is well-deserved. View this post on Instagram However, there is another fact in the world of cricket that doesn’t seem to sit well with his fans — At this very point in time, this very second, Virat Kohli is not the best batsman in the world of international cricket and in the One-Day Internationals, it is Pakistan’s Babar Azam who has taken away that recognition from him. However, this comparison between Kohli and Azam has obviously managed to trigger Kohli fans: Not compare Virat Kohli with babar azam because Virat is Virat — Shivam Kumar (@ShivamK17161363) April 15, 2021Its too early to compare Babar Azam with Kohli. Long journey awaiting to be like Kohli, 78 matches are very less in cricket for comparing. — irab AFGHAN (@AliSherAfghan) April 14, 2021If you know the meaning of respect Then don't compare that Babar with our King Kohli — 𝐒𝐚𝐭𝐲𝐚𝐣𝐢𝐭★𝟏𝟖࿐ (@im_satyajit123) April 14, 2021You guys still can't compare Babar Azam with King Kohli. There's only one king.#KingKohli — Rana Hammad (@Hammad_Arif_) April 14, 2021Here are some numbers that make the comparison legitimate: In the last 78 innings the two legends have played: Kohli’s scored 3100 runs while Azam has scored 3808, his average is more than 11 points higher than the Indian skipper and his strike rate outmatches Kohli’s by 5.5 points. Kohli’s inability to convert his 50’s into 100’s has also been a trouble for him. His 8 tons get outnumbered by Babar’s 13. Kohli does have three more 50’s than his Pakistani counterpart though. View this post on Instagram On the basis of the current forms, the ICC rankings suggest that Azam is in fact the number one ranking batsman in the 50-over format of the game. This essentially means that Kohli’s 1,258-day reign as the best batsman in the world has finally come to an end. And that is the very basis of competitive sports, right? To try to maintain your dominance in your game for as long as possible while others continue to hustle to take that spot away from you? As of this week, Azam has been able to do just that to Kohli. View this post on Instagram It is a monumental occasion and of course, comparisons will continue to run wild. Simply ignoring the opponents’ achievements by saying things like “Kohli is Kohli” or belittling his performance by suggesting that he didn’t get to play against the ‘real teams’ of the game is like insulting the game of cricket. We do have a tendency to ignore what doesn’t work in our favour but that doesn’t change how the world revolves around us. If anything, the dip in Kohli’s ranking should motivate him to do even better, take his game to the next level and get that top-spot for himself once again. That’s competitive cricket and that’s what competitors do. Everything else is just… noise. View the full article
  11. In a bizarre chain of events that has plagued the MV Ever Given, one of the largest container ships in the world, the vessel has now been impounded or “seized” by Egyptian authorities, who are now demanding more than $900 million for “incurred losses.” © Maxar On 23rd March this year, MV Ever Given, which is a Taiwanese-operated vessel flying with a Panama flag, turned sideways after losing its course, and got wedged between the two banks of the Suez canal, and ran aground, causing massive disruption in one of the busiest sea routes in the world. © AFP The 200,000-tonne MV Ever Given got diagonally stuck at a narrow portion of the canal, due to bad weather, a sandstorm that made navigation extremely difficult. In an earlier report, it was revealed that the entirety of the crew onboard the vessel were Indians. © AFP It is estimated that for each day of the blockage, cargo worth $9.6 Billion was held up between Asia & Europe. That comes out to a total of $57.6 billion over the course of 6 days. Egypt itself lost about $12-15 million in revenue, for every single day of that blockage. This figure does not take into account all the expenses of refloating the ship and tugging it to a safe harbour. During all this, a total of 420 vessels were stuck around the north and south entrance of the Suez Canal. The grounding of the ship and the intensive salvage efforts are also reported to have resulted in significant damage to the banks of the canal. © AFP The Suez Canal Authority, acting on a ruling passed by the highest economic court in Egypt, the Ismailia Economic Court, impounded the vessel and presented a bill of $900 million to the Japanese owners of Ever Given, Shoei Kisen Kaisha Corp. Each year, Egypt earns about 5.6-5.8 Billion dollars in revenue, thanks to the vessels and ships passing the Suez Canal. © Britannica As per a report by Reuters, the SCA, or the Suez Canal Authority, as well as the various insurers and the Japanese owners of the vessel are negotiating about the $900 million figure. The same report claims that the figure was reached by the courts, based on "the losses incurred by the grounded vessel as well as the flotation and maintenance costs." © AFP Japan-based Shoei Kisen Kaisha, hasn’t released a statement on the impounding of the ship, nor about the sum they are being presented with.

  12. AH-CHHOO! Man down! That’s all it takes to get sick. Sometimes even less. While you bravely and fully trust your immune system to fight back and it does, are you sure you’re giving it all the right weapons? See, you start off feeling great, 100 per cent confident about your health. But then one boozy late night and the energy level starts to dip. And then you follow it up with comfort food. It feels amazing but sooner or later, you’ll run out of energy. That’s probably when you’ll think about boosting your immune system by adding antioxidants and spices to your diet, by getting enough vitamin C and D. It’s good that you’re thinking about your health now and drinking grandma’s immunity boosting kadha. But wouldn’t it be great if you could avoid all the things that are weakening your immunity in the first place? 1. Stress, Loneliness & Sadness Stress and lack of sleep can make the brain boost production of cortisol, a hormone that impairs the function of infection-fighting T-cells. A sudden tragic event can also weaken your body’s immune response. According to a study published in the Journal of Neuroimmunology in December 2014, increased anxiety associated with loneliness leads to greater supression of the immune system. Solution:Exercise regularly. Stay in touch with your friends and family. Practice relaxation techniques such as meditation, yoga or tai chi. Hug people more often. __ECOMPRODUCT__1395__ 2. Sedentary LifestyleStudies have shown that too much sitting, avoiding exercise and sun can affect your body’s ability to fight infection. Regardless of your gender, age and harmful habits like smoking and drinking, a sedentary lifestyle can impair immune system, cause inflammation and other chronic diseases. Solution:Stay active. Excercise for 30 minutes. Walk in the sun, preferably before 10 a.m. The harmful ultraviolet radiation from the sun can also trigger immune responses and increase the risk of infection. __ECOMPRODUCT__1396__ 3. Too Much ExerciseBeing a couch potato is not encouraged because it impairs your immune system, but extreme workouts also do the same. Overtraining syndrome can make your body more suspectible to viruses. Solution:Moderate physical activity makes your body less vulnerable to infection. __ECOMPRODUCT__1397__ 4. Excessive Drinking & SmokingAll kinds of cigarettes—traditional and e-cigerattes—are exposing you to nicotine which is known to increase cortisol levels. Vapour from e-cigarettes contains free radicals that can cause airway inflammation and share impaired responses with bacteria and viruses. It can also damage the lungs and make them more susceptible to infection. Excessive drinking has a similar effect on the immune system. It make your lungs more prone to bacterial and viral invasion. Solution:Quit smoking. Limit your drinks. Increase your lung capacity. __ECOMPRODUCT__1297__ 5. Salt, Sugar & Saturated FatAccording to a June 2014 review published in Nutrition Journal, saturated fat can impair the immune system. Salt and sugar might also have negative effects. Obesity reduces the number and function of white blood cells that are vital to fight infection. Solution:Add salt and sugar to your food in moderate quantity. Eat good fat. Add cinnamon to your desserts and drinks. __ECOMPRODUCT__1398__ The Bottomline A couple of years back, you could enjoy all the junk you want but today, when a deadly virus is spreading like a wildfire, your body needs you. Immunity is your hero and you must take care of it in all possible ways. Explore More View the full article
  13. While the Indian Premier League has gotten its reputation stained in the past due to certain players and franchises being found guilty of participating in cases of spot-fixing and rigging matches to gain unfear financial benefits, every now and then a game takes place within the tournament which makes the fans question the legitimacy of it. The showdown between the Mumbai Indiansand the Kolkata Knight Riders at Chennai’s Chepauk Stadium on Tuesday explains is definitely one of those matches wherein the direction of the game completely changed around within a couple of minutes but more importantly, it is the way in which the scenario changed that has gathered the viewers’ undivided attention. Here Are Four ‘Super Shady’ Moments From MI vs KKR That Are Making The Fans Ask Whether The Match Was Fixed Or Not: Nitish Rana’s Steps Out For No ReasonDespite being the only player in the KKR batting lineup to score the 50-run mark, the way Nitish Rana got dismissed on the final ball of the 15th over has left the fans questioning his motives. Batting against Rahul Chahar, who had a phenomenal stint in the middle, Rana stepped outside of the crease, completely missed the mark and MI keeper Quinton de Kock ripped off the bails in no time. A visible lack of intent to get back inside the crease on Rana’s behalf also startled the viewers. See how nitish rana got out. He didnt even try to get back to the crease. His innings was excellent but the carelessness gives me a doubt — Aditya (@Aditya13560740) April 13, 2021Im a huge fan for KKR but I gotta say this all you guys are involved in fixing. The way you got out is so foolish no one gets out like that. And coming to Shakib and Morgan there is no necessity of hitting ball in air if RR is around 6-7. Really shame. — Ghost (@vk05111988_) April 13, 2021Kitne Me bik gaya bhai?? Accha hai bahat hi accha hai . pic.twitter.com/9ADmc9gIHd — NobiTA (@Shizuka_kaha_ho) April 14, 2021Andre Russell’s Passive InningsRegardless of the fact that Andre Russell went on to achieve the best bowling figures in the history of KKR (5/15 in 2 overs), it was Russell’s batting that got the fans demanding his credibility during the match. Coming on to bat at the number seven position, Russell, who has made a name for himself by hitting lengthy boundaries all his life ended up having a nine-run innings off 15 crucial deliveries. During his time at the crease, Russell was dropped twice, once on a caught and bowled and second on a sky-high catch missed by Jasprit Bumrah. Ultimately, it was another caught and bowled offered by the 32-year old that removed him from the strike in the final over. It was nothing but an fixed match!Andre Russell who's is the main culprit of fixing the match. He had many chances to take 2s while DK was ready, Russell refused.Moreover Russell lose too many balls while Kkr need not so many runs in proportion of balls. — Jamilur Rahman (@ItsJamilRahman) April 14, 2021It's actually proven that the match was fixed. C'mon, how many times do one get to see André Russell playing shots like these? So how much does KKR gets to pocket for this match? — Omar Sharif عمر شریف (@omarsk16) April 13, 2021WHAT A FIXED MATCH THEN THEY NEED 30 OUT OF 31 AND NOW 11 of 1. kkr match fixer Andre Russell fixer Ban them for 2 year. Match fixers,cheters kkr #starsportsindia #MIvsKKR #IPL #ShahRukhKhan #mukeshambani — I JD JAIRAJDWIVEDI 11 (@jairajdwivedi40) April 13, 2021Always the same in the #IPL - a couple of clean looking matches at the start to lure punters in, then BOOM - a MASSIVE fix. These fixing cricketers belong in jail. Look at the way Andre Russell just tried to give his wicket away. What a joke of a fixed match #IPL2021 #matchfixing — Ben Cook (@cricfan15) April 13, 2021Dinesh Karthik’s Lack Of IntentOne of the biggest reasons why Dinesh Karthik is being dragged into this discussion is simply because of the lack of intent shown on his part towards the winning cause of the team. Coming to bat just before Russell, Karthik managed to hit just eight runs off 11 deliveries and remained unbeaten till the end of the innings. Even Virender Sehwag criticised the two batsmen for the lack of positive intent while coming to bat. Becz match was already fixed — Altaf Amin (@AltafAmin6) April 14, 202113th April IPL match between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knights perhaps went wrong after 16 th over Rana was out playing for an ambitious shot. I think 27 runs required to win in 4 overs. Appears Russel and Dinesh Karthik made either Self goals like match fixed — ramkailash (@ramkail54028172) April 14, 2021Dinesh Karthik didn't even tried to hit d ball took easy singles. Thats how a perfect fixed match look like. Shittt @IPL — Nikhil Pyati (@Nikkhil01) April 14, 2021It might be really silly to speak but was the match fixed by KKR's veterans? @KKRiders @iamsrk @Eoin16 @Russell12A @DineshKarthik — Anish Kumar Sahoo (@Anishkumarsahoo) April 14, 2021It's not acceptable at any level.. nobody going to accept this... Kindly check whether match fixed or not... Because @Russell12A @DineshKarthik they played like that only. — Thala Vignesh (@thalavignesh53) April 14, 2021Final Five OversThe timing for Nitish Rana’s wicket could not have been any worse. The only set batsman in the team gives up his wicket on the final delivery of the 15th over off an unrealistic shot attempt, with exactly five overs left. These five overs felt like a completely different match. Catches were tossed to the fielders, simple slogs were escaping the bat every single time, almost all of the boundaries that came during this period were accidental, misfields or byes. Sorry to say but it’s seems fixed to match we understand pitch was playing slow but not dat much where you can’t even score 25 runs in last five overs when you have world biggest hitters in your team . Really disappointing #Sharukh — Sanju (@iambusharian) April 14, 2021When did we say bumrah or chahar fixed?? , It was the KKR players, watch tge last five overs again , watch each bowl, watch their body language, watch the dismissal of Nitish rana, this was not at all normal Cricket, Never seen anything like this before, — Geet Sodhi (@SodhiGeet) April 14, 2021Same bhai or mujhe koi hate nhi hai mi se but this match was total fixed I mean like kon single tak nhi leta 30 off 30 balls me — I am op (@anantsuri74) April 14, 2021Totally fixed match by fixcers....

  14. A brand new iPhone leak suggests that the next iPhone might get a camera upgrade users have been asking for years. According to renowned leaker Ming Chi-Kuo, the 2022 iPhone will likely get a 48MP camera that will be able to capture media in 8K resolution. For Android users, this may not be news as some smartphones already boast cameras with higher megapixels and the ability to capture 8K video. However, for Apple users, this will be the first time we could see an iPhone with a camera that has a higher resolution than 12MP. © theregisti--unsplash In a note, Kuo also states that the iPhone 13 mini will be the last small smartphone by Apple as well: “We predict that the new 2022 iPhone will have 4 models, namely the high-end 6.7-inch and 6.1-inch models, and the lower-end 6.7-inch and 6.1-inch models.” The note also went on to add that iPhones in 2022 will be getting a 48MP camera that will be able to capture 8K video. Kuo said the upgrade will come to two “high-end” models, presumably the “Pro” variants of the series. The story doesn’t end there though since the 2022 iPhone is also expected to get other camera upgrades in the near future. Kuo says that in 2021, Apple is expected to use a periscope telephoto lens as well as an under-screen Face ID feature. © mark-chan-unsplash Kuo has a tremendous record when it comes to Apple-related leaks and has accurately predicted iPhone launches with utmost accuracy in the past few years. Having said that, this information is still based on supply chain leaks and could change at any time. We do advise taking this information with a pinch of salt as Apple is known for throwing a wrench at the last moment. Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 13 later this year and it is likely to follow the same model line up as the iPhone 12 Series. There have been rumours that Apple might use a smaller notch but that remains to be seen. If Kuo’s prediction comes to fruition, it could be the biggest upgrade we’ve seen on the iPhone yet.

  15. WhatsApp was found to have a vulnerability that allows attackers to suspend your account without even hacking your personal details. An attacker can remotely disable your account by following a simple procedure that is meant to protect users from such instances. The flaw was found by security researchers who say this vulnerability has existed for quite a while. The attacker can suspend your account remotely even if you have two-factor authentication enabled. First reported by Forbes, security researchers Luis Márquez Carpintero and Ernesto Canales Pereña discovered the flaw due to two reasons. The first method allows an attacker to enter your phone number on WhatsApp and request a six-digit code for logging in. Since the attacker cannot obtain the code, the attacker can make multiple requests. After numerous attempts, WhatsApp automatically blocks access to the six-digit code for a period of 12 hours. © Quora The attacker can then contact WhatsApp support to deactivate your phone number from the app by sending a simple email. The attacker only needs to say that the phone has been stolen or lost and WhatsApp will then request a confirmation which the attacker can respond to from their end. With this process, your WhatsApp account will be suspended and you will not be able to communicate with anyone. You will also not be able to request a new 2FA code as your account would be deactivated since it was requested by the attacker. You can however restore your account by verifying your phone number however since the attacker has already suspended the six-digit code service on your number for 12 hours, you will not be able to recover your account. The attacker can repeat the process and lock your account for a further 12 hours as well. WhatsApp has not detailed whether the company is working on fixing the vulnerability at the moment. Instead, the instant messaging apps ask their users to register an email address with their account via the two-step verification method as it will help the support team to assist customers better. © pexels_anton It is not known whether an attacker has used this method to disable WhatsApp accounts, however since the method is available in public, it is possible. The method can be used to blackmail users from losing their data and we highly advise you to register your email address with your WhatsApp account in order to recover your account without being targeted.

  16. What do you think a good workout looks like? The one that leaves your muscles sore, body sweaty and shows results in a jiffy or the one that you actually do. It’s a bit of a cop-out but we would have to say latter. In times like these, when immunity is everything, the value of truism is much higher than ambitious, wildly unrealistic resolutions. Of course, you can make your workout a bit less like work but first, get into the habit of exercising regularly.

  17. A human body is capable of many things. In some instances, it's good while some are pretty embarrassing and quite gross as well. From having ingrown hair to having eye-boogers, there are some uninvited stuff that need to be taken care of. Here are 4 gross things that your body has and how to fix them. Check it out. 1. Calluses & Flaky Skin © iStock If you have flaky skin on your body or scalp, it's considered to be a good sign. Calluses are hardened layers that protect the skin against pressure. Flaky skin, on the other hand, sheds the older skin and generates a new one. Getting rid of flaky skin at home is possible. All you need to do is use a pumice stone, emery board or nail file to remove the layer of hard skin. Soak your hands or feet in warm water as it helps soften the calluses. 2. Ingrown Nails © iStock Ingrown nails happen when the edge of the toenails grow into the skin. This can cause issues like redness and swelling and while it's a common problem, this gross issue too can be dealt with in the comfort of your home. In case of excessive issue, it may need a professional's intervention. You can use apple cider vinegar as it has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties that can help deal with ingrown nails. Prepare a water bucket with 1/4th cup of apple cider vinegar and warm water. Soak your feet in it for at least 20 minutes and dry it, and you are done. 3. Eye Boogers © iStock It is normal to wake up with that sticky substance in the corner of your eyes. We all experience eye boogers. They are mucus that our eyes discharge. At night, when you go to sleep the eyes don't blink and that leads to a build-up of mucus. To get rid of it, you can opt for a warm compress, held over for at least 5 minutes on the eyes. This will loosen the mucus and help you get rid of it. 4. Skin Tags © iStock Skin tags can be prevented and they are one of the most common problems as they occur anywhere they like, basically on the face, butt, armpits, etc. Skin tags too can be dealt with but it needs to be done very gently. Instead of snipping them, try to dissolve them by using anti-bacterial formula. Tea tree oil works well and when you use it thrice a day, the skin tag will dry out and fall off eventually. Make sure the oil gets absorbed into the skin. View the full article
  18. Govinda has been one of the most versatile players in Bollywood. Not just his acting skills and on-point comic timing, but even his fashion game struck a chord with the audience. Many celebrities including Ranveer Singh and Diljit Dosanjh have quite a flamboyant sense of style, but it was Govinda who started experimenting with flashy pieces decades ago and made a jaw-dropping statement. © Viral Bhayani His acting career has taken a backseat for now but he is often spotted making an appearance. Every time that happens, our eyes rush straight to his style and we can't help but dissect his looks. © Viral Bhayani Just recently he was seen wearing loafers with invisible socks and then a dirty pair of jeans. His style statements proved that no matter how bizarre or weird his fashion sense is, he surely knows how to carry it with great panache. © Viral Bhayani Coming to the recent appearance though, we were pretty impressed with his ensemble. A basic white T-shirt topped with some accessories and coke white sneakers, truly made him look a few years younger than his original age. But, did you notice the denims that he is wearing here? They look so unfamiliar and odd, that we were reminded of a '90s rock band. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Govinda wore a pair of grey acid wash jeans. If you look closely, the pants have several zippers with studs. Back in the days, a prominent fashion statement was made by rock artists. The style was characterised by androgynous clothing and they introduced heavy zippers, leather, studs etc and these became a staple for decades to follow. The ensembles were mostly black with flashy details and we think even Govinda's pants are perfectly blended with elements of rock. © Viral Bhayani We also like his choice of going for a basic white T-shirt here. That, with his oversized sunglasses and messenger bag, took the outfit to a whole new level. As for his footwear, he wore a basic pair of white sneakers, which is an unusual choice as he is usually seen wearing some classic pair of shoes. © Viral Bhayani This was yet again a dope style move and we think he was at his zaniest best at the airport. Kudos, ChiChi! View the full article
  19. Arjun Kapoor made his debut with the film Ishaqzaade in the year 2012 after working as an assistant director and associate producer for films like Kal Ho Naa Ho and Wanted. His debut film was well-received by the audience and did extremely well on the box office. He is almost nine years old in the industry and has done a handful of films that didn’t do very well. As an actor, Arjun Kapoor couldn’t impress the audience and people have also trolled him many times on the internet saying that he is just another product of nepotism. However, even after his films failing at the box office he has managed to stay in Bollywood and make it big. He is the son of one of the biggest Indian film producers Boney Kapoor. Here are 5 expensive things he bought himself and made us believe that it’s not all ‘papa ka paisa’. Land Rover Defender View this post on Instagram Recently, Arjun Kapoor bought a Land Rover Defender and took his car for a ride and the paparazzi clicked him in Juhu. The car is worth Rs 1 crore. Juhu Apartment View this post on Instagram Arjun Kapoor lives along with his sister Anshula Kapoor and their pup Maximus Kapoor. The trio lives together in the same apartment which showcases personalized touches along with plush interiors. Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht Master II View this post on Instagram The watch is worth over Rs 27,57,000 and is designed for nautical sportsmen and is made of 18 karat gold. The watch is waterproof and the robust qualities of this watch make it best for water sports and sailing in particular. Also, this is one of the costliest watches worn by Arjun Kapoor. Owns FoodCloud (A Food Startup) View this post on Instagram Arjun Kapoor also invested in an emerging food start-up in the year 2019. The startup focused on reaching out to stay-at-home women cooks and empower them as entrepreneurs through their platform. Maserati Levante SUV © YouTube The actor gifted himself a Maserati Levante SUV on his 32nd birthday. He was also one of the first Bollywood celebrities to buy the luxury SUV ahead of its official launch. View the full article
  20. All of us, or well, at least the remaining 50 percent of the entire population who had escaped the "Thanos Snap", had loved and relished the moment when Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Panther (love you Chadwick), and co kicked the purple-colored genocidal warlord's a** in Avengers: End Game. Now, having grown up watching superheroes like Batman, Superman, Spiderman, and the rest through movies or TV shows, we have always gotten up from our seats at the sight of them demolishing supervillains back to their very layers to restore peace in the world. © Twitter However, since most superhero movies star actors from the United States, the United Kingdom, or Australia (our very own God of Thunder, Chris Hemsworth), Indians unfortunately, have not had a chance to see any of their countrymen don the glittering, spandex-made superhero costumes. Unless, of course, you are counting Krrish from the Koi Mil Gaya Franchise. Well, while we all love Hrithik for his abundance of talent, the franchise, unfortunately, does not have a lot of suitors within India, let alone, overseas. Luckily, for Indian superhero fans, we could finally be seeing one of ours jumping skyscrapers or flying alongside Thor and the rest of the Avengers in the next MCU Phase IV. Yes, according to recent reports, our very own talented actor/director/musician/screenwriter Farhan Akhtar has bagged a Marvel film, which is currently under production in Bangkok. Well, while the project is said to be top secret and his role is kept under the wraps along with everything else, we decided to make a list of superheroes the Kartik Calling Kartik actor could end up playing. Well, here it is: 1. BANSHEEWhen Walt Disney's acquired the 20th Century Fox back in 2019, the Marvel Cinematic Universe or MCU gained access to a plethora of characters and storylines from the X-Men universe, which had earlier been kept separate. © Comicbook This means the likes of Wolverine, Cyclops, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool can now join hands with the Avengers. Well, while it looks unlikely that Farhan would be lining up to replace Hugh Jackman any time soon, one character that he could end up playing might be the Banshee. A mutant, who possesses the capability of unleashing a "sonic scream" that can harm the auditory systems of enemies, the Banshee could be a perfect character for the Indian actor. It was last played by Caleb Landry Jones in 2011's X-Men: First Class, however, Farhan could spring a new life into the character by channeling the inner rockstar of his old Rock On! days. 2. QUICKSILVER © Screenrant Quicksilver or Pietro Maximoff is said to be one of the fastest mutants in the Marvel universe and we couldn't find a better candidate to play the role than India's on-screen Milkha Singh, Farhan Akhtar. Not only is Farhan familiar with competing at the highest level in sprinting, but he also has the acting talent to bring the best out of the superhuman speedster. However, with Evan Peters already showing up on the WandaVision tv series as Quicksilver, it looks like Farhan might not have the chance to have a go at it. He'd have been a good choice though. 3. THE HUMAN TORCHThe Human Torch is one of the four members of the team of Fantastic Four along with Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Girl, and The Thing. With the last Fantastic Four movie bombing at the box office, there is a big chance that there will be a new casting for it altogether. © Comicbook The Human Torch has the ability to engulf his entire body in flames, fly, absorb fire harmlessly into his own body, and control any nearby fire by sheer force of will. Well, it is safe to say that Farhan would literally light up the screen if he plays this character. 4. Marvel Boy © Comicbook Marvel Boy is one comic book character that has never been adapted to the movie screens till now, but with MCU now bringing in newer superhumans into the fold to expand the multiverse, he might just get his chance. Also known as Noh-Varr, Marvel Boy belongs to the militaristic alien race of Kree and has powers of superhuman strength, reflexes, and mind-controlling saliva. With the Kree already being introduced for the first time in Captain Marvel, we might just get to see Farhan Akhtar becoming Marvel Boy. 5. CHAKRA: THE INVINCIBLEThe best is usually saved for the last, and it happens to be no different in this particular list. © Comicbook While all the other characters had different origins, some from other parts of the world, or well, galaxies, this superhero actually happens to be the first Indian superhero created by the late Stan Lee. If things materialize, Farhan could end up playing Raju Rai, a resident of Mumbai who possesses a technological suit that weaponizes all the Chakras in his body and makes him a superhero. Well, we cannot wait to imagine Spiderman and others carrying out an "Avengers Assemble" cry near Gateway of India. View the full article
  21. Bobby Deol made his debut in the industry as an actor with his film Barsaat in the year 1995 for which he also won the Filmfare Debut Award and a Filmfare Best Actor Award nomination for the film.

  22. Whether you like it or not, Punjabi music has had a distinct impact on the Indian popular music scene, and how. While we have Badshah & Honey Singh on one end of the spectrum, we have quite a few artists, who make some really dope music as well as style statements in their music videos. © Instagram/diljitdosanjh These music videos really do stand out, not only because of how skilfully they’ve been shot but also because of their styling. © Instagram/sidhu_moosewala We take a look at a few of the best styled Punjabi music videos, that legit serve some serious styling goals for men. 1. Old Skool Prem Dhillon & Sidhu Moose Wala, both of them were impeccably dressed in this song. While Prem’s outfit was distinctly high-fashion in nature, Sidhu’s outfits consisted of athleisure, simple suitings, and one dope-looking ethnic wear. Sidhu, in particular, had a different level of swag altogether. 2. Brown Munde Although for most of the song, we see AP Dhillon and his fellow singers in some form of uniform or safety jackets, the instances where they dress up are simply sublime. We see some of the best athleisure outfits in this song. Also, even when we see the singers in uniforms, they are seen wearing some really dope looking sneakers. 3. G.O.A.T Diljit Dosanjh looks like a proper baller in this music video. While we really love the tuxedo that he wore in this song, thanks to its silhouette and fit, we simply cannot ignore the athleisure outfits that Diljit wore in this song. He also accessorised the heck out of those outfits - harness, bum bags, watches, sneakers, chains - the man was just on fire. Then, there was that sweet-looking Gucci sweater that he had on. Just sublime. 4. Lehanga Irrespective of what one thinks of the song, the reality is, it is one of the most viewed Punjabi music videos on YouTube. Jass Manak really showed us how to wear colours with utmost confidence. We seriously like the variety of prints that we see Manak wearing in the song. We have some dope-looking pieces from Versace, Dolce & Gabanna, and Gucci. Plus, there were some really tasteful streetwear outfits as well. 5. Coka Sukh-e is one stylish fellow, and if you really want to see just one video where he’s at his stylistic best, then this is the music video that you should be watching. While some of his hairstyles maybe a little too OTT for you, you cannot deny his outfits were just amazing. We especially liked that kitschy denim jacket that he wore, right at the beginning of the video. It went really well with the rest of his all-white outfit. 6. No Competition Here we have yet another number by Jass Manak, again, in which he can be seen wearing some really colourful jackets and shirts. His golden suit is a little OTT, but other than that, those are some pretty hip street outifts. Divine, as always, was just a class apart, when we speak of streetwear. Special Mention - Jine Mera Dil LutiyaThis is a song that we grew up listening to. Jazzy B & Apache Indian were the OG style gods of Punjabi music. Some of their earlier music videos really set the tone for the genre for a decade or so. This music video right here is a great example of just how elaborate the styling would often be in their videos. View the full article
  23. When I asked my husband what he looks for in his undergarments, just to compare with my choices, he simply said ‘it should be comfortable’.

  24. Sawai Padmanabh Singh, the young Maharaja of Jaipur, does know how to make headlines even without intending to. Be it walking the ramp for the most luxurious brands at the young age of 19, or hobnobbing with fashion and business giants despite just being in his early '20s, this man does put the edge back on royalty. View this post on InstagramOther than being an absolutely dashing Maharaja who has adorned the covers of the biggest magazines out there apart from his throne, the young monarch, affectionately called 'Pacho', is also an accomplished Polo player. View this post on InstagramHe has a penchant for high fashion amalgamated with traditional royal values, and he does exude that incomparable exuberance even in pictures. He just shared some intimate pictures from the royal Holi celebrations, and the sheer grandness of it reminded us of a Bhansali movie set. What we absolutely had to focus on, is the stylistic abandon with which the royals function, and of course - the magnificence of the clothes involved. Take a look! © Instagram/benediktloebell © Instagram/benediktloebell Is there anything quite like a royal Indian entry? We're here for the all-white, traditional grandeur! © Instagram/benediktloebell © Instagram/benediktloebell © Instagram/benediktloebell The simplicity of his outfit is a reminder to us all about the functionality of Indian clothing, while somehow being absolutely classy at the same time. © Instagram/benediktloebell © Instagram/benediktloebell We can't get over the Safa (sometimes also referred to as a Pagdi) - the hand-tied headgear the king has donned. Regality with oodles of historic legacy! © Instagram/benediktloebell © Instagram/benediktloebell © Instagram/benediktloebell The fact that the entire royal staff is equally well-dressed with their graceful headgears and all-white ensembles, kind of makes us want to go back in time, away from the madness that the past couple of years has brought into our lives. © Instagram/benediktloebell © Instagram/benediktloebell © Instagram/benediktloebell © Instagram/benediktloebell Everything said and done, 'Holika Dahan' honestly is one of the most important festivals around, and no one knows how to welcome the Spring better than us Indians.
