  1. Best friend, sibling, distant relatives and quirky colleagues - every good screenplay comes with a wide variety of characters to flesh out the lead role's journey through a film. Bollywood's history is lined with actors who've made a name by immersing themselves in a role, sometimes so much so that the role becomes synonymous with them - think Amjad Khan in Sholay, for example. Today, Bollywood's best boast of some of the most incredible and intense performances ever captured on film - here's a few who did such a good job with their roles, they've outshone the main leads on the films they've worked with. Manoj Bajpayee as Bhiku Mhatre, Satya Possibly one of the greatest castings in Bollywood history, Bajpayee's performance in Ram Gopal Varma's critically acclaimed crime thriller was nothing short of iconic, but did you know that the actor himself wasn't confident about the role? “Everybody used to feel so excited about my performance but I wasn't sure if we are doing it right,” he said, nearly 20 years after the film. “That feeling of unsureness was always looming large because no one of the film industry was making this kind of a film.” Vijay Raaz as Somayajulu, Delhi Belly Raaz has become a go-to choice for voice overs, and perhaps the best example of his gruff baritone is in this incredible black comedy from 2011. Perfect comedic timing, the ability to absolutely steal every scene he's in and a script that props it all up - if only we had more villains like him in the industry. Arshad Warsi as Shakti, Hulchul I'll admit I've got a soft spot for Priyadarshan films, and while the over-the-top drama and hilarious gags from Hulchul make it a prime candidate for my favourite one, a large reason why is Warsi's amazing performance. He's jumpy, completely owns his role and outshines lead Akshaye Khanna in every scene they both are in - although reportedly, Warsi had been disappointed with his role during the shoot, and resigned himself to commit to a 100% performance. He sure did. Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Shaikh, The Lunchbox It had to be either Paan Singh Tomar or this - one of the most interesting matchups in the history of Bollywood has been Siddiqui opposite Irrfan Khan, and given that the two were roommates during their days as struggling actors gives huge weight to their scenes together. However, Irrfan acts like he always does, and Siddiqui - instead of his gung-ho gangster or small-time crook typecasts, absolutely nails the role of a bumbling office salesman. Saif Ali Khan as Langda Tyagi, Omkara Another fantastic Shakespearean adaptation of Vishal Bhardwaj's Omkara brought together an epic cast - yet the surprise standout remains Saif Ali Khan in the role of the crafty, ruthless gangster Langda Tyagi. After a series of light-hearted roles, watching Saif pull off this intense performance was an absolute treat - and remains one of the best performances of his life. Pankaj Tripathi as Principal Srivastava, Nil Battey Sannata Similar to Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Pankaj Tripathi's reputation as an antagonist in film is legendary - but watching the actor's rich, lovingly crafted performance as an upstanding school principal betrays the long years he spent developing his skills as a theatre actor. 'Nil Battey Sannata' is my story,” the actor said to Times of India. “It says that one should keep dreaming, stay focused and the dreams will come true.” Annu Kapoor as Dr. Baldev, Vicky Donor Famous for his roles and captivating talent as a TV show host, Annu Kapoor blew expectations out of the park with his work in Vicky Donor, splitting audiences' sides with his portrayal of an eccentric fertility clinic doctor. Apparently the role was first offered to Boman Irani - while we think he would have done the role justice, Kapoor's work was just the extra kick of humour that the film needed - making Ayushmann Khurrana's debut a truly special and iconic movie.

  2. Whenever you talk about the biggest rivalries in the game of cricket, the thought of India and Pakistan definitely enters your mind. Even though in the modern era, players from both teams have downplayed the feeling of playing against each other, these five incidents from the past will surely make you feel differently. Here are the five biggest fights from the epic rivalry between the cricket teams of India and Pakistan that were captured on camera: 1. Ishant Sharma Vs Kamran Akmal, 2012: Probably the mildest altercation to make the cut, the battle of words between Indian pacer Ishant Sharma and Pakistan wicket-keeper Kamran Akmal started a delivery after the former survived getting dismissed on a no-ball. A 5â6ââ tall Akmal held his ground when a 6â4ââ giant Sharma walked right to his face and started a war of words. Suresh Raina tried to get the two athletes away from each other but Ishant went right back at it after taking a few steps back. The situation got so out of hand that the umpire had to step in and Yuvraj Singh, out of all others, had to push Ishant away in a playful manner. While Akmal was fined 5% of his match fee, Sharma was found guilty of initiating the spat and was therefore charged 15%. 2. Harbhajan Singh Vs Shoaib Akhtar, 2010: The Asia Cup match between India and Pakistan turned out to be the source of two eyebrow-raising moments. First was between Gautam Gambhir and Kamran Akmal which led to the Indian batsman hitting an angry 83 off 97 deliveries to give his side a good start to the chase. But the moment that stood out even more, was when Harbhajan Singh took over after Suresh Rainaâs dismissal and played a brilliant innings to lead India to victory with a six in the final over. The reason which led to Bhajji playing with a spark was Pakistani pacer Shoaib Akhtarâs attempt at sledging him in the second last over. After Raina was gone and Parveen Kumar, a tailender, was Singhâs partner, Akhtar once again tried to irk him with a few taunts and ânot so pleasantâ words. Harbhajan set the record straight with a powerful maximum on the second last ball of the match. 3. Gautam Gambhir Vs Shahid Afridi, 2007: Gautam Gambhir was one feisty cricketer, wasnât he? Even before his altercation with Akmal, Gambhir found himself a suited feud partner in Pakistani all-rounder, Shahid Afridi during an ODI match in Kanpur. This is how the fight unfolded: Gambhir hit Afridi for a four, after which the latter started running his mouth and the former retaliated with equal friendliness. On the next ball, Gambhir ran for a single and collided with Afridi who was standing in his way. This led to a second more serious argument, which disrupted the flow of the game and on-field umpire Ian Gould had to step in. Upon further inspection after the match, both Gambhir and Afridi were fined 65% and 95% of their respective match fees on the accounts of "conduct unbecoming to their status which could bring them or the game of cricket into disrepute" and "inappropriate and deliberate physical contact between players in the course of play." 4. Kiran More vs Javed Miandad, 1992 This incident was more of a Grade-A trash-talking and sledging which took place way back in 1992 when India and Pakistan were playing each other in the World Cup match. By Moreâs own admission, he hid his face with his wicket-keeping gloves and kept talking to Javed Miandad from behind the stumps. An irritated Miandad first complained to the on-field umpire about the same but More simply shot down the allegations. Soon after, Miandad wanted to take a single but was stopped by his partner in his way and had to get back to his crease. By the time, More received the ball and tried to run him out while jumping in the air. Miandad instantly started jumping in the air to mimic him. The two became really good friends after this incident. The image of the Pakistani batsman jumping animatedly while More just stood there not knowing how to react will continue to be one of the fondest memories of the India-Pakistan rivalry. 5. Venkatesh Prasad vs Aamir Sohail, 1996 And finally, the big one. The World Cup 1996 knockout match between India and Pakistan which had all the ingredients for cooking up an instant classic. There was controversy, excellent batting by both sides, and even a riot taking place not two steps away from the venue, Bangaloreâs M Chinnaswamy Stadium. After Pakistani opener Saeed Anwar lost his wicket with Pakistanâs score at 84, Aamir Sohail held the fort and how. With 9 fours and 1 six, he reached the half-century mark in less than 50 balls and felt like spicing things up a bit. After smashing his 9th four off a Venkatesh Prasad delivery, he signalled towards the bowler and asked him to go get it from the line. The delivery that followed, completely stunned the batter who got clean bowled with the stump completely ripping off the ground and laying flat on the surface. Even then, Sohail didnât give up his arrogance. With zero emotions on his face, he walked straight to the pavilion while gesturing his half-century towards the crowd. View the full article

  4. WWE WrestleMania 36 is less than 10 days away now, and we have decided to relive some of the best matches and moments that took place in the history of the biggest stage in the pro-wrestling business. #WrestleMania = TOO BIG FOR JUST ONE NIGHT. â ï¸ @FightOwensFight vs. @WWERollins â ï¸ @WWEAleister vs. @fightbobby â ï¸ #UniversalChampion @Goldberg vs. @WWERomanReigns â ï¸ @IAmEliasWWE vs. King @BaronCorbinWWE pic.twitter.com/zTOYlOMrVI â WWE WrestleMania (@WrestleMania) March 24, 2020 Weâll begin the series with the match that solidified the rivalry between two of the greatest wrestlers of the âAttitude Eraâ in Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock. Random match appreciation Tweet. Stone Cold Steve Austin vs The Rock at WrestleMania 17 for the WWF Championship is so freakin great. I love this match so much... It's just incredible. pic.twitter.com/XKSlQn2Ar6 â Kyle (@kyle_bardin) December 16, 2018 The âNo Disqualificationâ match for the WWF Championship title, which was with The Rock at the moment, was made highly prestigious thanks to some brilliant storytelling, some nerve-wracking promos and some nail-biting in-ring performances by the two stars. According to the narrative, Vince McMahon had made Stone Coldâs then-wife Debra Marshall The Rockâs manager, whoâd get in harmâs way every now and then, because of the fact that The Rock was the champion. Stone Cold was also portrayed as this hungry fighter who wanted to take the title away from his rival by any means necessary. McMahon, himself, was an active part of the storyline and had made the lives of the two wrestlers an absolute hell. The brand took its sweet time building up to the match at WrestleMania 17. There were promos in which Stone Cold would offer The Rock a can of beer with an unusual animosity in his eyes, then there were times when The Rock was ready to strike the Texas Rattlesnake with the âRock Bottomâ but whenever the two were found to be sharing the ring, theyâd always end beating each other up. And then came judgement day. It was a brawl which felt as if the two wrestlers wanted to hurt each other truly and badly. There was blood dripping down from both their heads, they were finding it difficult to breathe because of how long it went for, but somehow, they managed to keep the audience on their toes. The commentary done by legends like Jim Ross and Paul Heyman sold the match as if Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson had somehow managed to go head to head. After they tried everything, stole each othersâ finishers and strangled each other with all the submission locks in the world, entered Vince McMahon. When Austin asked McMahon to bring him the steel chair, that is when he changed into a heel in this storyline. Heâd go on to smash The Rock in the head with the chair a couple of times followed by a barrage of chair shots to his back before finally pinning him and winning the title. This not only made Austin the champion but also made The Rock look extremely powerful. It is because of moments like these that this rivalry is still considered to be the best the company would ever have to offer. The true fans of the profession will completely appreciate how massive this match was for both their careers and also for the company that made millions from it. View the full article

  7. With the COVID-19 quarantine by and large in effect for the foreseeable future now, things will be going haywire. The pressure to work from home and stay productive, the constant bickering of siblings and family members, and the manner in which we feel trapped in our own houses, is surely going to get on our nerves. © iStock It is very easy under such circumstances to panic and actually lose sight of things that are actually important. Taking proper care of yourself is one such thing. Now, you may be washing your hands every now and then, and cleaning your hands with some really good hand sanitizers which ultimately, are actually quite harsh on your skin. We recommend you follow what this dermatologist says about taking care of your hands that have gone dry from constant washing. © iStock But what about your face? How do you take care of your skin when youâre under quarantine, and supposedly safe from all the external factors that normally cause havoc on your skin. Well, when youâre under quarantine, you need a skincare routine even more, simply because you lose track of things at times. Also, do you really want to take risks right now? © iStock Here are six super easy steps that can actually prove to be quite effective and useful for your skin, especially when youâre under quarantine. Inculcate A Sleeping Routine © iStock First and foremost, inculcate a proper sleeping routine and follow it. Since youâll be spending possibly the entire day at home, you may get complacent and do things lazily. Especially on the days when youâre working from home. Instead of staying up late at night, binge-watching your favourite shows, stick to a proper sleeping routine, wherein you get at least eight hours of sleep. Now, thanks to the quarantine, you actually donât have an excuse not to sleep for eight hours or more if needed. Wash Your Face At Least Twice A Day © iStock Given that you have to wash your hands quite a few times throughout the day, it would behove you if you wash your face as well. Wash your face at least twice a day, with a face wash that suits your skin type. Also, go for something that is friendly for the environment and also on your skin, otherwise, you risk drying up your skin, which will make it all itchy and sensitive. Moisturise Thoroughly © iStock Pick a moisturiser that suits your skin, and make sure you actually use it thoroughly. Even though you might think that there is no need to moisturise your face regularly because youâre always indoors anyway, you actually should be moisturising your face, on a regular basis. Given you will have to wash your face regularly, do not skip on moisturising. Avoid Touching Your Face Unnecessarily © iStock Your hands touch all sorts of surfaces and things through the day. God knows what all germs and pathogens they pick up. Health experts, medical professionals and even the WHO suggests keeping your hands away from your face. Unless it is imperative and an unavoidable circumstance, avoid touching your face. If just have to touch your face, to adjust your spectacles, or to itch or something, rub your hands with some hand sanitiser first. Exfoliate At Least Once A Week © iStock This is actually somewhat a leisurely activity, but again, something that you should go for often. Exfoliate your skin using a slightly coarse cleansing agent. We suggest you go for something like multani clay, or some other form of clay. That not only helps your skin in maintaining its pH balance, but also gives it a thorough and deep cleansing. Stay Hydrated © iStock Finally, and this is the most important thing that you can do, keep yourself hydrated properly. Drink at least 2 litres of water every day, even though you may not feel thirsty that often. To take things to the next level, use a face mist, or some micellar water. View the full article
  8. Amid the Coronavirus outbreak, a lot of people have been resorting to rather bizarre ways to spread awareness about the virus or to simply lighten the mood. We have been hearing many Indians singing the corona bhajan âKitho Aaya Coronaâ and not to forget Ramdas Athawaleâs âCoronavirus poemâ. Now, following the footsteps of India, Pakistan isnât far behind as recently, a Pakistani bureaucrat shared a song to create awareness about the pandemic. The only catch is that the tunes are taken from Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khanâs song âSuno Na Suno Naâ from the film Chalte Chalte. Hereâs the video of the original song- Pakistanâs Deputy Commissioner Hafizabad Naveed Shahzadâs Coronavirus song was recently shared by a Pakistani Commentator, Ansar Abbasi, on Twitter. Check out the video here- In a unique fashion, the Deputy Commissioner Hafizabad Naveed Shahzad delivers public service message on Corona virus. pic.twitter.com/MRvvvHJ882 â Ansar Abbasi (@AnsarAAbbasi) March 18, 2020 The song is catchy and tells people to follow simple yet vital instructions on staying safe from the virus. The video has gone viral and has garnered over 130.2K views and why wouldnât it? Itâs a Bollywood song! Turns out, people in Pakistan are in love with the song and find it very impressive. Hereâs what they have to say- Okay... Very well conveyed.. Excellent DC Sb !! â Different Angle (@AchayDinAaingay) March 18, 2020 Thatâs true.

  9. As novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) tightens its grip across the globe, the governmental bodies continue to put in the hard labour in a bid to prevent its spread. With the COVID-19 cases rising by the day, the concerned authorities have been left with no option but to emplace travel bans, facilitate quarantine camps and put curfews in place. While the recent turn of events continues to bamboozle the authorities, its preventive measures have disrupted normalcy in the lives of people across the globe. The world of sports, too, has taken a hit with numerous sporting events either getting suspended, postponed or cancelled. View this post on InstagramOn a roll 𧻠Wanted to get in on the action...#stayathomechallenge (recovery version ð)A post shared by (@marcusrashford) With no playing time on the field, sportspersons have been pretty much restricted to home akin to the general public. But, while staying at home might seem like a drag, sports stars have found ways to keep themselves occupied and their fans entertained. The 'Toilet Paper Challenge' and 'Stay At Home Challenge' are a couple of unique ways that are being used by sportspersons to not only keep themselves busy, but also spread awareness about COVID-19. With a significant lack of any live sport on the horizon, sportspersons have had enough time on their hands to spread the word far and wide. The most recent sports star to join the 'Stay At Home Challenge' was none other than 'Universe Boss' Chris Gayle himself. #StayAtHomeChallenge ?????? #Attiitude pic.twitter.com/NMIDxeiz0P â Chris Gayle (@henrygayle) March 19, 2020 The Jamaican marauder, on Thursday, took to social media to post a video of himself where he was seen working out indoors in his own uncanny manner. The left-handed opener was seen wearing a Superhero-like costume, which reminded us of the WWE stars, and working out to the tunes of the iconic 'Eye of the Tiger' track. View this post on InstagramThere is always an opportunity to do something productive and be safe at the same time. Feels great to be in the nature right now and enjoying my workout as well ð Stay Strong everyone ðªðA post shared by (@shikhardofficial) A day before Gayle, Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan, too, took up the 'Stay At Home Challenge'. The Indian batsman took to Instagram where he was seen working out in what appeared to be the backyard of his residence. "There is always an opportunity to do something productive and be safe at the same time. Feels great to be in the nature right now and enjoying my workout as well. Stay Strong everyone," Dhawan wrote. View the full article
  10. If youâve always wanted an Amazon Echo but didnât really want it confined to one room, Amazon came out with a solution with the Echo Input Portable. Instead of buying multiple Alexa devices to have in multiple rooms, this smart speaker can be carried with you anywhere in the house. It does not need a power outlet and is small enough to be carried in the palm of your hands. This smart speaker is instead powered by a battery and can be charged when it runs low. You can use it to listen to your favourite music and carry it with you to do all the smart things Alexa is capable of doing. It costs only Rs 4,999 and hereâs why you should get it for your home. Design When you first look at the Echo Input Portable, it resembles any generic Bluetooth speaker out there. But when you look closely, it has a more premium design than any Bluetooth speaker in this price range. At the top, it comes with two buttons where one can be used to mute the microphone while the other can be used for bringing up Alexa. It also comes with four microphones so that it can pick up your voice even when listening to loud music. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla There are also three buttons that can be used to operate the smart speaker. One of them is a traditional power button while the other two can be used for controlling the volume. Having said that, the Echo Input Portable does not have a 3.55mm jack which means you will have to rely on a Bluetooth connection. The name of the device is quite misleading as it does not have a headphone jack for audio input. Usability and SoundWhen using the Alexa Input Portable, you will feel right at home as many Bluetooth speakers now come with digital voice assistant integration. While the Input Portable may not be a Bluetooth speaker in its truest form, it does double up as a smart speaker and an audio device. Using Alexa on the Input Portable is flawless as it can easily pick up your voice from far away, thanks to the additional microphones. It performs way better than any audio device that has Alexa integration. You would kind of expect that from an Amazon device, it surely delivers. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla When it comes to the sound, the overall experience was quite pleasing and in line with most small Bluetooth speakers. It is loud enough to fill up a small room but isnât loud enough to host an entire party. You can use these speakers when you have small gatherings or are in a hotel room. The Echo Input Portable isnât supposed to be a full-blown audio speaker, however, if you are interested in that, you can always get the Echo Studio. You can stream music from every service such as Amazon Music, Gaana, Apple Music, Spotify, Saavn and others. Being portable means it needs to last long and according to Amazon, it can last up to 11 hours. We found that our review unit lasted for up to 9 hours on loud volumes. However, if using it on lower volume levels, you can easily push it to last 11 hours. It comes with a 4,800mAh battery but unfortunately, it cannot be fast-charged. You can always use it when it is plugged in, however it will take time for the device to get fully charged. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla In order to use Alexa skills and other commands, you need to have an internet connection. It does not use your smartphoneâs internet and instead uses a Wi-Fi connection. So if you are wanting to use the smart features of the phone outside of the home, you will need to be connected to a WiFi network. Having said that, switching Wi-Fi networks is not an easy task especially if you plan on using it outside your home. Bluetooth connection is quite easy from the Alexa app and takes only a few seconds. The Final Say For Rs 4,999, you can get yourself a decent Bluetooth speaker that also doubles up as a smart speaker for your home. It is quite cheaper than third-party speakers that have digital assistant integration and can hold its own with competent Bluetooth speakers in the audio department. Having the flexibility to carry your smart speaker with you instead of going to your speaker changes the entire smart speaker experience for everyone. View the full article
  11. Skin care for men is not something that you should start only when you start facing problems. Remember, prevention is always better than cure. For most men, skin problems like wrinkles, acne and dark-spots start appearing in their 30s. Instead of regretting later, it's best that you start taking preventive skin-care measures in your 20s itself. Here are five skin care habits that you should add to your routine right away. __ECOMLOOKS__242__ __ECOMLOOKS__243__ __ECOMLOOKS__244__ __ECOMLOOKS__245__ __ECOMLOOKS__246__ Explore More View the full article
  12. No matter what your take is on grooming or putting an effort in how one looks, you simply cannot deny the fact that when you spot those first strands of grey hair, alarm bells start ringing in your mind. So much so, that all you can think of is how quickly you are getting old, and how the relentless march of time is out there to get you. © Instagram/ishabhansali This feeling of helplessness gets even more poignant if you start seeing grey hair in your early twenties. Although it is very natural to start shedding your hair, and start getting grey hair the moment you turn 20, no amount of rationalisation can help you in coming to terms with this. © Instagram/jimsarbhforreal Although most of your grey hair can be attributed to our collective lifestyle, and genetics, there are a few habits that exasperate the situation and speeds up the greying of your hair. Unfortunately, most of these habits are actually hard to get rid off. Luckily though, off-setting these habits arenât that difficult. Here are some habits that are wreaking havoc for your hair and causing excessive greying. 1. Excessive Smoking © iStock You shouldnât be surprised that this is here on the list. Smoking even one or two cigarettes a day causes a chemical imbalance in your body, so imagine what must be going on if you smoke a pack of 20 in one day. The best way to go about it, is to cut your cigarette intake short, and restrict yourself to 4 sticks a day. Pro-Tip: In order to do that, there are a number of psychosomatic tools, that actually inhibit you from smoking. Nicotine gums, nicotine patches, shock rings - all of these are methods that actually well work quite well, in a limited amount of time. 2. Deficiency Of Important Vitamins © iStock Given how everyone nowadays is a fitness freak, chances are that most of us have somewhat of a balanced diet, mainly because of supplements. That being said, there are a few micronutrients and vitamins that get chucked out of your daily meals, especially if youâve come to depend on supplements. If your diet is deficient in any kind of vitamin, whether it is vitamin B-6, B-12, biotin, vitamin D, or vitamin E, youâll start to grey prematurely. Pro-Tip: Add a whole citrusy fruit in one of your meals, preferably in your breakfast. Most citrus fruits have a ton of vitamins and some other essential micronutrients. Also, try catching some sun in the morning. Try jogging in the open, instead of on a treadmill 3. Lack Of Hair Hygiene © iStock We know that hair hygiene is an alien concept for most men. Out of the bliss that comes from ignorance, or whether they simply do not care, men do not invest time or effort when picking a hair shampoo or a conditioner. What makes things even worse, is the fact that some men use a regular bar of soap, or their body washes on their hair. Pro Tip: Talk to a dermatologist, or at the very least, a trained hairdresser to see what kind of hair and scalp do you have, and pick a hair shampoo and conditioner. Also, once you buy them, use them, instead of letting them collect dust in the cabinet. 4. Not Oiling Hair © iStock Oil massages are extremely vital for having great scalp health. No matter what kind of oil do you use, almost all of them have a very balanced nutrient composition that works wonders for your scalp, and therefore your hair. Not getting regular oil massages deprives your scalp of these nutrients. Not having regular oil massages can also lead to fungus building up in your hair, if you also have a habit of not shampooing regularly. Pro Tip: Go for oil massages regularly. Also, to extract the most out of your massages, ensure that the oil is heated a little. You can also add some garlic to the oil when you;r heating it. 5. Using Products That Donât Suit You © iStock The only thing thatâs worse than not using the necessary hair products, is using hair products that do not suit you. If you have brittle hair, using a strong antidandruff shampoo makes no sense. Similarly, going for medicated shampoos and conditioners without consulting a dermatologist can have adverse effects. Pro Tip: Always research thoroughly about your concern and the specific ingredients that you should be on the lookout for, before settling on a product. Also, always consult a dermatologist before going for something herbal or medicated. View the full article
  13. Whatâs in a name? Not too much if youâre a person - but if you happen to be one of these fifteen megacompanies, a name invokes far more than just a brand label - some of these iconic names have stood for decades and will probably continue on for several more. Company founders usually find a name somewhere between clever hidden meanings, plain functionality and often, just dumb luck. Today, navigating through legal restrictions makes it a lot harder - so hereâs a list charting through some of the more unique, interesting names youâll find on stock markets today. Nike © Reuters The central idea is pretty straightforward - Nike refers to the Greek goddess of victory, usually depicted with outstretched wings and laurels as a sign of triumph - the ancient Greeks would be proud today. Lesser known in Nikeâs story however, is the brandâs original name - the much less catchy âBlue Ribbon Sportsâ. The catalyst for the name change was Blue Ribbonâs first full-time employee, Jeff Johnson, who convinced his team that successful brand names had two essential qualities. First, they were short. Second, they contained an âexoticâ letter, such as an X, K or Z. Soon, Nike took off the ground - and it all came from advice Johnson read in an airplane magazine. Google © Reuters Some meetings were just destined to happen - such as when Stanford university prospective Larry Page met Sergey Brin on the campus grounds in 1997. Soon, Google was officially registered as a domain in the same year - instead of hunting for an iconic or thoughtful word, the pair decided that one of the most obscure words in the English language would serve as their companyâs inspiration - googol, or the mathematical term for the value of 1 followed by 100 zeroes. Whatâs amusing is that before Google, the pair had initially settled on the much cosier sounding name of âBackrubâ. Imagine - an entire universe of awkward jokes and moments missed out on, where weâd spend countless hours âbackrubbingâ instead of googling stuff. Starbucks © Reuters While most of us are content with ordering a quick latte and rushing out the door, you might want to take a look at the Starbucks branding next time youâre looking for a caffeine fix. The coffee chain originated from Seattle - a city well-known for its prolific ports and history of rugged seafaring. Match that heritage to the mermaid character and her 19th-century woodcut design⦠but what about the name? For that, you need to look no further than the legendary novel Moby Dick - the whale-obsessed captain Ishmael happens to have a first mate named - you guessed it - Starbuck. Pizza Hut © Reuters Sometimes, naming a brand is less inspiration and more of working with the limitations youâve got. In the case of mega-pizza chain Pizza Hut, the story began way back in 1950 - long before the Italian favourite permeated every layer of American food culture. While attending the University of Kansas, brothers Frank and Dan Carney launched the first Pizza Hut with a $600 loan from their mother. The name was easy to remember and naturally became quite famous, but there were actually just two reasons as to why the name was chosen. First, the pizzas were made in a literal brick hut - even in 1950, not a lot you can get from $600. Second, the cramped sign only had enough space for nine letters - the rest is history. Apple © Reuters Itâs no surprise that when it came to finally naming Apple, absolutely no one would take on the duty other than marketing genius, eccentric CEO and perhaps one of the most famous late men of the 21st century, Steve Jobs. Thereâs a whole set of rumours about the name Apple - one says that Jobs took inspiration from the story of how Sir Issac Newton observed a falling apple before devising the laws of universal gravitation. The true answer is much simpler - during the time, Jobs happened to be living on an all-fruit diet. The name simply came to him while visiting an apple farm. Coca-Cola © Reuters Serving as one of the great faces of modern capitalism, right alongside McDonalds and more, Coca-Cola is a pretty ancient company - almost 130 years old. Back in the early days, the drink was promoted as a headache cure, and two of the most important additives were cocaine and caffeine - both obtained from the âcocaâ leaf and the âcolaâ nut. If youâre curious, each bottle contained some 9 milligrams of cocaine - a standard âlineâ of the substance contains 50-60 milligrams. Soon after in 1903, the dope was removed, and the world began to move on to everyoneâs favourite carbonated sugary drink, as we know it. Facebook © Reuters Ever seen Aaron Sorkinâs film, The Social Network? If you have, youâll know that before the tech giant had its name, it also had a common prefix as âThe Facebookâ. Originally, the website was a networking tool inspired by Harvardâs annual paper guide distributed to first-year students, which profiled staff and students. Launched in 2004, Mark Zuckerbergâs original site was intended solely for Harvard students but quickly spread to other U.S. universities. By 2005, Zuckerberg dropped the âtheâ and Facebook was born. Royal Enfield © Reuters An icon of both Indian riders and classic British motorcycling heritage, the Royal Enfield name has absolute cult status in the country - even though its origins were far more colonial. Whatâs interesting about the Enfield marquee is that the name has changed twice - back over into Royal Enfield once again. It began in 1890, when the British crown cleared licenses for the brand. Soon after, the motorcycles made a reputation for themselves, especially in World War II. By 1955, the brand had a decent following in India as well, where the government ordered a massive 800 units of the motorcycles for its police and army forces. Soon after, Madras Motors were looped into a deal and Enfield India was born. It wasnât until 1990 that Enfield India merged with the Eicher Group, forming the Royal Enfield we know and love today. Amazon © Reuters Before he created Amazon in 1996, founder Jeff Bezos christened his company Cadabra. That was short for Abracadabra, or the word he felt best conjured the idea that a book would magically appear âAbracadabra! â on a customerâs doorstep. After Bezosâ lawyer thought âcadabraâ sounded like âcadaver,â and Bezos reconsidered. His perfect name would begin with an A, thus appearing first in the alphabetical listing of a web search. As the largest river in the world â strong, swift and exotic â the Amazon proved to be his ultimate inspiration. View the full article

  16. We have often seen Rajkummar Rao wearing some really interesting footwear. From a pair of sneakers that looked like they were legit space boots, to one of the classiest pairs of high top boots, clearly, when it comes to shoes, the man doesnât mess about. One can always count on him to lay down some serious footwear goals, whether it is a zany pair of sneaker that youâre looking for, or for something else. © Instagram/rajkummar_rao Well, Rajkummar, it seems to have outdone his own zany footwear choices, by wearing one of quirkiest pairs of sneakers we have seen. What makes his sneakers quirky, you ask? Well, they come with their own jewellery and embellishments. © Viral Bhayani But first, letâs get to his outfit. Rajkummar is wearing a seemingly basic t-shirt from Dsquared2. Although the t-shirt may seem basic, it actually has a few nifty touches here and there that make it a little quirky. The shoulders, for example, are very subtly distressed. The rest of the torso as well has those distress marks. Just to get an idea of how exquisite the t-shirt exactly is, consider this - they are listed for about $145 or just under Rs 11,000. Yup; Rs 11,000 for a t-shirt. © Viral Bhayani The denims too are quirky. They are ripped from the knees and have a very aggressive wash. On top of the aggressive wash, they also have a very light bleaching as well. The denim jeans do look good on Rajkummar, we must say. © Viral Bhayani Coming to the highlight of the ensemble, the sneakers that Rajkummar is wearing. They are the #54 LV Trainer Sneakers from the Paris based luxury retailers, Louis Vuitton. The sneakers are based on your run of the mill, vintage baseball sneakers, and have a flat construction. © Louis Vuitton As far as the materials and construction is concerned, the Virgil Abloh designed piece ticks all the boxes that come with high fashion item - exquisite materials all around, a rich heritage to call back one, and the name of a designer that has a cult following. © Hypebeast So exquisite are the pieces, that they have embellishments of their own. Around the heel of the outsole, youâll see three micro-inserts, that add a very distinct characteristic to the sneakers. © Louis Vuitton Such an exquisite pair of sneakers will surely be expensive. Just how expensive, you ask? Well, they are listed for $1,200, or just under Rs 90,000. Add to that your regular set of import duties and customs, and youâre looking at a figure thatâs well over Rs 1.20 Lakhs. © Viral Bhayani Rajkummar surely does know how to pick some really exquisite sneakers, doesnât he?

  17. India is a melting pot of culture and the synergy of art and cinema that this country radiates is seldom matched by any other country. While Bollywood is globally recognised as a huge source of mass entertainment, the entertainment industry in South India is also a biggie and is sometimes, in fact, known to be more professional and streamlined where work is concerned. South Indian movie stars are perceived to be humble and real for their fans and hence the ever-growing appetite for making more movies is understandable. However, there are some North Indian stars as well who have enjoyed immense fame, and here are 5 Punjabi actresses who have managed to have a successful career down South as well: 1. Taapsee Pannu Long before she forayed and made her mark in Bollywood, Taapsee Pannu was already a famous name down South. She has been there for over a decade and has many hits to her credit including Aadukalam and Mogudu. she is one of the finest actresses of recent times and is currently riding on the success of her recent movie Thappad which raises the issue of domestic violence in the country.

  18. Bollywood is a powerhouse of talent where you either are remembered for your work or are soon forgotten. While everyone dreams of becoming a star which brings them fame and money obviously, some of Bollywoodâs big names have enjoyed a bigger inning in their real life over the one in reel life. Here are 8 actors who might not have managed to make it super big in Bollywood but are pretty big business owners in real life. 1. Bobby DeolDespite not having many movies in his kitty, this handsome man enjoys a stellar fan following. He is known to be a wonderful person off-screen and even though he became a celebrity DJ not a very long time ago, he has many sound investments in place which keeps him busy. © Instagram 2. Arjun RampalThe talented actor has done some cool work on screen but his hard work off screen is fabulous as well.

  20. You went to the salon and your barber cut your hair short or you wanted to grow long mane but your hair didn't support your decision. No matter what the reason is, growing out your hair is the most difficult task of all. Experts suggest that hair growth is gradual and it grows a quarter or half an inch every month. But a healthy scalp can help achieve desired results faster. With simple and easy to follow steps, you can have well-groomed hair and this natural therapy that we are about to introduce will let you grow out your hair, without any drastic measures. 1. Go Easy On Your Shampoo © iStock It's understandable that you are addicted to washing your hair every day but doing this is only going to lead to hair fall. It strips off the precious natural oil from your scalp and weakens your hair. This will further lead to split ends from your hair shaft and cause damage. To grow it smoothly and faster, limit its usage to twice a week and start applying a leave-in conditioner. It will help prevent moisture loss and breakage as well, leading to hair growth. 2. Brush Your Hair © iStock When you brush your hair, it helps spread the natural oil all the way to the tips and improves its appearance as well. It also helps speed up the growth process. Furthermore, this method also stimulates blood circulation to your scalp which means your hair will look luscious and healthy. Follow this method ardently but do not overdo it as it can lead to hair fall as well. Overall, brushing your hair can improve the hair strength and you can lessen your visits to the salon as well for haircuts. 3. Eat A Balanced Diet © iStock The very first step before everything else is to follow a proper diet regime. A balanced diet helps boost the body's metabolism ad at the same, it helps grow out your hair as well. Food items that include biotin, vitamins A, C, D & E are quite effective that will help grow out that mane sooner than you can imagine. 4. Say No To Heat © iStock Just like you care for your skin, why not do the same for your hair as well? Constant use of hair dryers or other styling tools isn't good. Your hair will be disappointed and there will come a plateau where the growth could stop. Even hot water can strip off the natural oil and hence it is advised that you wash your hair with lukewarm water as it helps clear any residues from the scalp and allows your hair to grow faster. 5. Make A Hair Mask At Home © iStock Sometimes your hair would need some serious revival. Yes, you can go to a salon and get a hair massage done but if you want to do it the natural way, a homemade recipe can be your safe bet. Make a mask made of yogurt, raw honey and a few drops of lemon juice. Use this solution once a week on dry hair and leave it on for half an hour. Sequel to this, go for a shampoo and a conditioner for added benefits. 6. Give Some Space © Instagram /Ranveer Singh In the midst of making your hair grow faster, you might forget to give it a rest. Avoid all the possible steps that help grow your hair and follow just one simple rule, do a regular hair champi with coconut oil infused with curry leaves.This method will help improve the hair texture and simultaneously strengthen your hair follicles.

  21. As Virat Kohli and the Indian cricket team are busy contemplating on ways to defeat Kane Williamson and the New Zealand cricket team in the two-match Test series after facing a whitewash in the ODI series in 22 years, there is another man, who has the nation on its toes, especially when it comes to his future with the squad. Former Indian captain and wicket-keeper batsman, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has made no announcements about his plans as an international cricketer, but is clearly having the time of his life spending some quality time with his ex-teammates, Parthiv Patel and Piyush Chawla. In a recent video shared by Viral Bhayani from his Instagram account, the 2011 World Cup winning captain can be seen listening to some old Hindi songs in a menâs washroom with some of his close friends, including former international cricketers Parthiv Patel and Piyush Chawla.

First, it was his decision to go on a two-month sabbatical to fulfil his duty as a part of the Indian Army, then he further extended it till November. Then in the final week of November, Dhoni said âJanuary tak mat poocho (don't ask me till January),â thereby further extending his off days by two more months. We are halfway through February and still no MS Dhoni. "Okay bye, Don't ask me till January" This is how Dhoni responded when reporter questioned about his future plans at yesterday's event. ï¸ pic.twitter.com/XT1uB8D7Tt â DHONIsmâ¢ ï¸ (@DHONIism) November 28, 2019While there is no update on Dhoniâs position in the international squad, he made it very clear that he will be returning to Chennai Super Kings for the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League and add to his efforts making it the most successful franchise in the history of the league. Having lost to Rohit Sharmaâs Mumbai Indians in the finals last year, this season has to be all about redemption for âThalaâ. However, even before the season begins, Dhoni can be seen headlining another major event as he will be joining forces with Virat Kohli and Sharma to participate in the IPL All-Star Game which is scheduled to take place on March 24.

  22. Letâs get one thing clear - mothers are amazing! I am pretty sure they created superheroes after real-life mothers and the sense of loyalty, selflessness and dedication that comes with them. I mean itâs almost unbelievable the amount of unconditional love and a bottomless pool of forgiveness that our mothers are capable of bestowing. View this post on InstagramSundayâs ð¤ð³ - Today, I got to spend the day catching up with my Mum. Iâm glad that we have so much in common. We appreciate simple things - quality food, spending time outdoors & getting engrossed in a good book ð - Like Iâve mentioned before, by the time youâve turned 18, the average person has spent over 90% of the time theyâll ever spend with their parents ð³ Iâm determined to be an outlier with regard to that statistic ðð¾ - Iâll do that by avoiding routine tasks which arenât intrinsically valuable. Since Mum brought me several weeks worth of RNS meals, I wonât have to worry about going to the shops, chopping, peeling, cooking, etc. Not only do I not have to do those tasks, I donât even need to think about what Iâll be eating. Itâs one less decision to make every 3/4 hours ð - Having become acclimatised to our incredible commercial kitchen at RNS HQ, Iâm also not sure I could face the prospect of a student kitchen anyway 𤣠- Want to spend more time with your parents?

View this post on InstagramLike Clockwork ð¤©ð° - Now that weâve got an incredible kitchen team, Jhaiâs playing football again & Iâm back at Uni, we spend far less time at RNS HQð - In fact, itâs rare that both Jhai & I are able to spend Saturday at RNS HQ. However, this week we did ð¤ð­ - It was the first time Iâve been at HQ and not touched anything. I stood & observed, notebook & pen in hand. I watched with pride - our kitchen; professional, efficient & composed ð - Weâre helping more clients than ever before, weâre running smoothly and yet I donât believe weâre out of first gear ðð¢ - The food is better than ever, our new website makes clients lives even easier & results are flowing 𥳠- Weâve increased capacity and weâre ready to help even more people live Happier Healthier lives ð¤ - If you think we could help you, Visit RNSMEALS.COM to get startedð±ðð¾ð¦ð½ð¦ð½A post shared by (@rice_n_spice_) Talking about his motherâs latest move, Jhai said, "She helps out with the business a couple of times a week by managing the shifts and sits in on meetings and calls on strategy or marketing. But she now does this as she enjoys it and it's her 'new baby' rather than because she has to for work. She spends the rest of her week reading, going to the gym or doing yoga now." View this post on InstagramThere were times when I thought about stopping RNS, itâs a huge time commitment, I donât take a salary & there are lots of other more lucrative ways I could spend my time ð¤ - I havenât considered stopping for the past year since weâve had staff but the reason I didnât stop before was Mum.. - Growing up Mum made her life fit around us but only more recently have I come to realise how much she must have sacrificed for us over the past 20 years ð¤ - Sheâs extremely content with life and never asks us for anything, but I thought it would be great to give mum a job she enjoys, itâs the least we could do ð¦ð½ð¦ð½ð¤ - We want Mum around for as long as possible, so weâre trying to build a happy, healthy lifestyle for her. We want her to consume food that will promote longevity & which she enjoys eating. We also want to give her meaningful work which will provide her with a sense of purpose and which is challenging enough to keep her sharp ð§ - Mumâs the reason we are who we are. So sheâs the reason weâll ensure RNS is a success â¤ï¸ðµð½ðA post shared by (@rice_n_spice_) âRice n Spiceâ provides healthy meals which are delivered chilled on Sunday for people to use throughout the week, and this family is an inspiration for having done a lot of good through this single initiative.

  23. How many times have you looked in the mirror and smiled because you looked super cool? Several times we hope. Well, thatâs because fashion lovers derive maximum happiness out of putting together that perfect outfit. Finding a shirt that matches your favourite jeans and sneakers combo is an unmatched feeling. While most of us opt for a casual yet chic look for a movie date or when hitting the mall, it just doesnât make the cut for big occasions. Thatâs where âgroomingâ comes into play. If you want your better half to smile the minute they see you, itâs time to up your game. To start with, an unkempt beard is a recipe for disaster, a total buzzkill. A prim and proper beard speaks volumes in favour of your personality while making you look dapper too. And hey, you really donât have to hit the salon for this. All you need is an efficient trimmer. We highly recommend Havells high-performance trimmers, ideal to shape your beard and give your jawline just the chiselled edge it needs! For the final touch, use their blow dryer to set your hair to perfection. View this post on Instagram @mahhivij âs smile after looking at my style makes it all worth it!
