  1. Last year, the 'Hum Fit Toh India Fit' campaign took the internet by storm. The 68-year-old PM Modi participated in the challenge and proved that age is just a number for him, as he shared videos of him working out and performing yoga asanas, while lying on top of a rock. © Twitter In fact, time and again PM Narendra Modi has urged his followers (on social media) to include yoga as an integral part of their lives. In case you didn't know, all the Yoga lovers and the world in general actually will celebrate International Yoga Day on June 21, this year. On 21st June, we will mark #YogaDay2019. I urge you all to make Yoga an integral part of your life and also inspire others to do the same. The benefits of Yoga are tremendous. Here is a video on Trikonasana. pic.twitter.com/YDB6T3rw1d — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) June 5, 2019 So, being an ardent fan of yoga, PM Modi has been sharing a series of videos on social media of asanas like Trikonasana, Tadasana and Vrikshasana. But, what's so special about these videos? The videos feature an animated PM Modi performing those asanas and listing benefits of those asanas, so that more and more people can incorporate yoga in their lives. Doing Tadasana properly would enable you to practice many other Asanas with ease. Know more about this Asana and its benefits. #YogaDay2019 pic.twitter.com/YlhNhcRas8 — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) June 6, 2019 "On 21st June, we will mark #YogaDay2019.

  2. You have to admit that at times, festivals do seem like an exaggerated excuse to bring our entire clan together under a single roof. Amidst loud conversations, elaborate feasts and unending rounds of fun and frolic, festivals turn into a celebration of togetherness in many ways. Yet, if there's one thing that we can't overlook about every festival we celebrate in India, it's that all of them hold meaning and a reason behind them. Think of any festival, and you will find that there is actually a reason why we celebrate it. (c) Twitter Just the same way, the holy month of Ramzan has culminated into this day-long celebration, as the Muslim community gets together to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr today. Eid-ul-Fitr, which means the "Festival of the Breaking of the Fast", marks the end of Ramzan, and is celebrated all over the world by the followers of Islam. (c) Twitter Many might not know this, but Eid-ul-Fitr is actually a festival that is celebrated over a period of three days. On the morning of Eid, the entire family gets together over breakfast, which also serves as their first day-time meal after a month! Then, after visiting the mosque, a great feast is laid out for everybody to enjoy together amidst greetings of Eid Mubarak floating around, and demands of Eidee interrupting every other conversation. (c) Twitter However, there is more to this sweet festival, which is robust and community-centred in a lot of ways. While most of us look forward to all the good food and feasting that is synonymous to Eid, we often miss out on this underlying goodness to the festival. More than anything else, Ramzan, followed by Eid-ul-Fitr, is also about giving to others and sharing with others. Therefore, charity becomes an important part of the Eid-ul-Fitr celebrations. (c) Getty Images Many Muslims happily choose to donate different kinds of food and material goods to the poor. This form of charity is called sadagah al-fitr, and is often undertaken in the hopes to ensure that everyone who is observing the month of Ramadan fasting can enjoy a special meal on the occasion of Eid. (c) Twitter From new clothes to heartfelt good wishes and blessings from elders, as well as all the food, feastings and frolic that accompany this festival, Eid-ul-Fitr is indeed a happy occasion meant for one and all who wish to join the celebrations. Here's wishing everyone Eid Mubarak on this happy occasion.
  3. As 'Game of Thrones' is heading towards the end, we all saw what we assumed was the most powerful enemy, defeated by none other than Arya Stark. It seemed simple, sidelining all the theories we'd been discussing for over weeks, but it wasn't as simple as it was made out to be. There were subtle hints throughout the series about Arya rising as a great warrior, pitching her purpose towards something bigger, like defeating the Night King's army. Now that's done with, we wonder what lies ahead. All we know is Cersei is waiting with Euron Greyjoy at the other end of the spectrum for either the living or the dead to arrive. © HBO While we speculated a gazillion theories on how the Night King's army will be defeated, here we are again, trying to figure the same for Cersei. Right now all we know is the living are going to march with whatever they have left towards King's Landing and fight Cersei for the throne. Dany and Jon alone don't have an army as such. The Dothraki and the unsullied were wiped off during the war. Dany has her dragons intact, which is enough but we shouldn't forget Cersei has the Golden Cloak army of 20,000 men, plus the Lannister army plus the Grejoy fleet. But she also has her prophecies buried in her head, and she's very aware of them and always has been. © HBO If you're wondering what prophecy I am talking about here, let me take you back to season 5 episode one, when Cersei meets a powerful fortune teller Maggy the Frog, deep in the woods of Casterly Rock when she was a child. Cercei demands to know her future and Maggy tells her three things. The first that she wouldn't marry a prince but a king. Which came true. Second, she would be cast aside by a younger and a prettier queen who will take away all that Cersei holds dear to her. Which again came true. In the last one Maggy tells her that that the king would have 20 children and Cersei would have three, and “gold will be their crowns, and gold their shrouds.” Maggy then tells Cersei that all three kids will eventually die. Which came true as well. Apart from these three predictions, Maggy reveals a final prediction, which is mentioned in 'The Feast of Crows', the fourth book in the series. She says “The valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale throat and choke the life from you.” Now, here the valonqar translates to a younger brother. For Cersei, this has always been Tyrion as someone who could possibly try to kill her. However, if you notice, there's another brother in Cersei's life who is younger to her and that's Jaime. © HBO Earlier we would have assumed that Jaime can never kill Cersei since he's so helplessly in love with her. But towards the end of season 7, we see Jaime's disgust for how Cersei has been ruling the kingdom, bordering on insanity, just like the Mad King and he decides to leave her allegiance to support a greater war far North. Cersei also betrays Jaime and everyone else when she doesn't march to Winterfell to fight the dead along with the Starks and Daenerys. Since Jaime has left her side, Cersei hires Bronn to kill Jaime and since there is so much bitterness between the two already, we won't be surprised if Jaime does go for her throat when he sees her. © HBO While all her prophecies have come true, we're sure this will come true as well. But there's a heavy contradiction with this prophecy. In season 3, Melisandre meets Arya with the 'Brotherhood Without Banners' and she predicts that Arya and she will meet again. She also tells Arya that she sees a darkness in her and in that darkness eyes staring back at her. Brown eyes, blue eyes and green eyes, eyes she'll shut forever. Throughout the series when Arya is seeking revenge from her 'list', she shuts many brown eyes. When Melisandre sees her again in season eight's third episode, she reminds her of the prophecy and about the blue and green eyes she's yet to shut still. We all know Arya kills the Night King who has blue eyes. So, who's the one left with green eyes? Yes, it's no other than Cersei! The book mentions the fact that Cersei has green eyes. Now, we're not sure if Cersei is the one Arya will go after or if she's shut some green eyes before, we're not aware of. A lot of fans are theorising the belief that Jaime will die, in the battle at King's Landing and since Arya is the faceless man, she will don Jaime's face and strangle Cersei towards the end, giving both Melisandre and Maggy the Frog's theory a befitting end! Well, so far only the prophecies have helped foreshadow our cause in knowing what may happen next, so if we do hold on to these two theories, maybe the end is eventually near?
  4. Nearly 50 games into the tournament, the 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is already proving to be a big success. For one of the biggest T20 leagues in the world, the ongoing season did suffer a minor hiccup with the general elections raising security concerns. But, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the IPL Governing Council have done well to segregate the tournament in phases to avoid problems. Keeping that in mind and of course the dew factor, the Indian cricket board has announced the revised timings for this season's Playoffs and the all-important final. Like last year, the BCCI has now decided to advance the 8:00 pm (IST) start to 7:00 pm (IST) for the knockout stages of this year's edition.

It will be followed by the Eliminator on 8th May at the ACA VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam. Further, the Qualifier 2 will also take place in the Visakhapatnam stadium on 10th May, while Hyderabad's Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium will host the IPL 2019 final on 12th May. On the other hand, the timings and dates for the Women's T20 Challenge have also been revealed. Comprised of some of the biggest names in women's cricket, three teams - Supernovas, Trailblazers and Velocity - will be seen competing against each other. The games will be held from May 6 to May 11 at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, in Jaipur. While the matches scheduled on 6th, 9th and 11th May will start at 7:30 pm (IST), the second game, scheduled on 8th May will commence at 3:30 pm (IST).

  5. First things first, 'Avengers: Endgame' is an absolute masterpiece. Don't get me wrong, this plothole I'm going to talk about doesn't make the movie any less amazing. In fact, I didn't even notice it till I watched it for the second time. No one did. I guess we were all just blown away by the epicness of it all. But, once the dust settles, and I could think clearly about everything I had just witnessed, there was only one question that popped into my head. Be warned, there are SPOILERS AHEAD! If you are part of the select few who haven't watched 'Avengers: Endgame' yet and want to go into it without any spoilers, STOP READING right here! Don't say you weren't warned. Don't go crying in the comments about how I ruined your experience by giving out spoilers. You're the idiot if you keep on reading from here on out without watching the movie. © Marvel Studios Okay, now that the spoiler alert is out of the way, let's get right to it. The two main characters get very different endings. One, Iron Man, gets to save everyone and finally rest while, the other, Captain America gets his happy albeit kind of selfish ending. Iron Man's journey has come full circle from the events of 'The Avengers.' All he wanted to do from the first Iron Man movie onwards was save the world and he finally did it. He lost his life in the process and that's just one of the reasons it is a huge sacrifice. He also gave up his perfect life (with Pepper and Morgan) so that everyone else who had lost their loved ones could get another chance at happiness. The perfect story arc for his character who started off as selfish and arrogant. © Marvel Studios As for Captain America, he has always been the selfless hero who puts everyone else ahead of himself. His own needs are always secondary and every single decision he takes is for the greater good. He is infallible in that sense and is everything a hero and the leader of the Avengers should stand for. So, you could forgive him for being selfish for once and choosing to stay in the past with Peggy Carter after returning all the Infinity Stones. No complaints here either. But then, old Captain America shows up on the bench where Bucky, Sam and Professor Hulk are waiting for him to return through the Quantum tunnel. At first, you enjoy this scene with Bucky's knowing smile and Sam's shocked expression when Cap passes his shield to him. Then you see Cap getting his dance with Peggy and the movie ends on the perfect note. The first Avenger is also the last one you see on screen. Can't see anything wrong with these scenes, can you? Well, there is one problem. How the hell did old Captain America end up on that bench? Answer this question and I will be forever grateful. © Marvel Studios The answer is not simple. Let me break it down into multiple reasons supporting this ending and why they aren't possible: The Rules Of Time Travel Every movie uses what it considers it's own rules for time travel. 'Avengers: Endgame' did the same thing. The rules are simple. Time is relative. So, if you go into the past and change something, your present won't change. You will be creating an alternate timeline. The past will become your future, your present will become your past which can't be changed by the new future you're creating, as Professor Hulk eloquently puts it. © Marvel Studios The Ancient One adds to this saying that when you remove a single Infinity Stone from a particular timeline, you create an alternate timeline where that stone ceases to exist. Professor Hulk has a solution for this. Return every single Infinity Stone to the exact time they took it for. That makes sense and that's where Captain America's final mission leads him. To return every Infinity Stone to the exact moment in time they took them from. If he just showed up on the Quantum tunnel at the end of the movie as Old Captain America, things would have been fine. Captain America Gets Benched It's safe to assume that Captain America is proficient enough to return every Infinity Stone to the right time and place. After that, he decides to live out his life with Peggy Carter. Basically, take the long road to the future. But, how would a timeline where there are two Captain Americas suddenly merge at the end, where he shows up on the bench in the original timeline? It's just not possible. © Marvel Studios If they let him live his life with Peggy Carter in a world where he dismantles Hydra before it infiltrates SHIELD, rescues Bucky before he can cause so much damage, helps the Avengers defeat Loki and take down Thanos, while still leading a happy life with Peggy, I would have been satisfied. But, he shows up on the stupid bench and ruins this theory. Captain America Has Mastered Time Travel Here's another one. Captain America has become a master at time travel. He makes sure he stays with Peggy Carter but lives a very reserved life without impacting any of the major events that take place in the world since he knows there's another Captain America out there handling stuff. The first problem with this is that Captain America, the bravest and purest Avenger would have to sit back while Hydra infiltrates SHIELD, Bucky dismantles governments and murders Tony's parents among others and all the other gruesome things that take place in the main timeline without doing anything. That's not the Captain America we all know and love. © Marvel Studios But, even if he does manage to do that, there's another problem with this theory. Even the smallest of changes could have a huge impact on the timeline and hence create an alternate one. For example, he still has to eat. That's food that would have otherwise gone to someone else. All the food he has eaten over 70-80 years. That's enough to create a new timeline. Time travel isn't as simple as you'd think. The One That Might Just Be True Here's the last one. It's the most plausible of the lot. Still pretty unbelievable. But, it could be true. So, Cap returns all the Infinity stones and then lives his life with Peggy Carter. Once he's done with that life, he takes out the Quantum time travel device Tony Stark created and uses it to travel back to the main timeline with his shield. But, instead of showing up on the new Quantum tunnel he shows up near it. © Marvel Studios He then walks to the place he remembers his friends were waiting for and sits on that bench. That's when everyone sees him and everything else happens as we see at the end of the movie. Although highly implausible, this is the only thing that makes sense. Is there any other explanation? Please help me! I'm losing my mind…
  6. We're in the 'Endgame' now, and Marvel is hellbent on making this experience a bigger, better and more wholesome experience.

  8. Here's something funny to cure your midweek crisis situation. On the lightest side of humour, we have a sandwich place in Hong Kong called 'Sandwich Hub' that is written in the same way as 'Porn Hub' and has become quite an attraction for sandwich lovers in Hong Kong! © Reddit The tagline to the place reads: 'Sandwich that'll make you come' and I am not sure if it's a straight-up pun or they add a certain type of aphrodisiac to their legendary sandwiches, but whatever it is, this innovative way to sell food is surely gathering some eyeballs from everywhere. Reddit users were actually the ones who discovered it and put it up online and here's what they actually think! © Reddit The food joint serves some classic Indian dishes like Vada Pav, Dosa and Behl Puri as well. It's run by an Indian. Well, only an Indian will get such innovative business ideas I suppose! Well, I am not sure about you but Johhny Sins will surely have a great time here, in case he decides to visit! © Facebook So, in case you're in Hong Kong anytime soon, do give this place a shout. Maybe the pun is worth it, after all!
  9. Rajkummar Rao is undoubtedly one of the most talented and versatile actors in the current crop of Bollywood, and with each movie he is proving his mettle to the world. Last year the actor, who is now basking in the success of 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga', gave another blockbuster performance in Dinesh Vijan's 'Stree'. © Instagram Starring Shraddha Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Aparshakti Khurana and Pankaj Tripathi; 'Stree' was a great attempt at bringing the horror-comedy genre back in an unusual and unique way. After an unexpected, but well-deserved victory at the box-office, there were rumours that the movie will be turned into a trilogy series. While it's not confirmed whether it's a sequel or not, but reports suggest that Rajkummar and Dinesh Vijan are coming together once again for their second horror comedy, 'Rooh Afza'. The film was announced earlier, but the name was not known back then. © Maddock Films According to reports, the movie will revolve around a ghost, who always comes around the wedding season to capture newly-wed men. The film will also star 'Fukrey' actor Varun Sharma, and might go on floor later this year. View this post on Instagram This one's gonna Be one of a horrifying Comical ride!! Can't wait to get started!!ðâ¤ï¸ @rajkummar_rao #dineshvijan @mriglamba @gautam.m1 @maddockfilms A post shared by Varun Sharma (@fukravarun) on Dec 17, 2018 at 12:00am PST People say your past can come back to haunt you when you least expect it, and this movie 'Rooh Afza' is the perfect example for it. A drink we loved in our childhood is now coming back on the big screen as a horror movie and to be honest, there's nothing sweet about it. But, to be honest, we're quite excited for this one.
  10. We understand that a major reward for all those who lift is showing your hard work (muscle) to other people. And why not? Lifting is not an activity accomplished overnight. It takes years of training and altering your diet to reach the ripped goal posters stuck on the inside of your bathroom door. And when you finally start to begin to feel ripped after countless, endless and more importantly breathless workout sessions, you obviously want to...scream it out loud, lift your tshirt everywhere you go, and post #gains on Instagram. However, you may be in a position where all of this is not possible. For example if you're a part of a professional setting or say in college where stripping is not possible at all. Then, instead you could wear clothes that help you get the definition by following these tips: 1. Avoid Graphic Tees © kartikaaryan Graphic tees are designed to conceal any kind of bulges. They would work best for a guy who wants to hide them. You, on the other hand, want to flaunt your bulges which means graphic tees are your enemy. 2. Embrace Solid Snug Sweats © fktgram Make solid snug tees your best friend. These kind of silhouettes help make your abs become more pronounced, which always helps. You just have to wear a solid tee and watch eyes linger around as you walk through hallways. 3. Wear A Buttoned-Up Shirt © fktgram A counter-intuitive move but a buttoned up shirt will give you more definition than a buttoned down shirt. It always leave space for people to imagine your muscles which is a good thing. 4. Roll Up The Sleeves © johnabrahamfanaccount If you roll up your sleeves, it immediately adds more structure and definition to your outfit. Case in point: John Abraham with his sleeves rolled up. 5. Go For Snug Fitted Formals © vainglorious Snug fitted formals make a better case against baggy ill-fitted formals for obvious reasons. Make sure you buy the right sizes when you shop for formals. Muscles pop out with the right size. 6. Layering © hritikroshan Layering is a great way to define things underneath. Again, it's important to stick to the right size and not overdo it.
  11. Ever since the glamorous Indian Premier League (IPL) came into existence, it has put numerous, extremely talented players on the map. These were the cricketers who didn't play international or first class cricket due to the lack of opportunities but were in no manner less deserving of making a great living out of the game they loved so passionately. The league has experienced a series of changes as the years have passed. Some of the older teams have become extinct while new franchises have replaced them in seamless transitions. Having said that, there exists a franchise which is not only one of the strongest pillars of the edifice IPL has now become but has also gone on to win the entire tournament thrice - the Mumbai Indians (MI). Sleepless nights? Nervous nail biting? Screaming at your screen? If you've experienced any or all of these symptoms you might have Cricket Fever, premieres 1st March. pic.twitter.com/Ujl1tq6Els — Netflix India (@NetflixIndia) February 5, 2019 The upcoming Netflix eight-episode docu-series titled 'Cricket Fever: Mumbai Indians' gets into MI's journey through the 2018 season of IPL between the pre-season auction and the final of the year against the Delhi Daredevils (now, Delhi Capitals). Joe LaBracio, the Executive Vice President of Non-Fiction TV & Documentaries, Condé Nast Entertainment (CNE), the studio that produced the series, said: "Our love of India drew us to share the story of the second biggest sport in the world and make it an entertaining, engaging experience for non-cricket fans to also enjoy." What To Expect From The Series Being coached by one of the legends of the international cricket in Mahela Jayawardene for a competitive owner in Akash Ambani, a great story in terms of the locker room situation during the wins, losses and major injuries during the season, and behind-the-scenes footage can be expected from the docuseries. The series also promises to dive deep into the history of some of the most celebrated MI players. The inception of Rohit Sharma's ability to captain, Krunal and Hardik Pandya's struggles growing up in Surat and Jasprit Bumrah's story to becoming one of the top pacers in the world, CNE plans to cover every minor aspect of the MIPaltan's members in great detail. Watching the emotional journey of the three-time champions and its players, staff and owners that goes beyond the cricket field would most definitely be an unprecedented experience with the first of its kind Indian sports docu-series. 'Cricket Fever: Mumbai Indians' will launch on Netflix worldwide on 1st March 2019.
  12. Ranveer Singh is, well, 'not regular', when it comes to his fashion choices. This bit everyone knows and he has done everything he possibly could, to reiterate this point over and over again. However, his 'Gully Boy' promotions have been on a whole new level altogether, where he has outdone himself. Right from wearing a unicorn jacket to wearing the most bizarrely unusual outfits ever, Baba has been on a roll. © Instagram © Instagram/Ranveersingh However, just when all eyes were on Ranveer, his 'Padmaavat' nemesis Shahid Kapoor just stepped out wearing something that looks like he's finally caught the 'Ranveer Singh Fashion Virus'. In a fashion move that is distinctly unlike his own, Shahid wore a jacket that looks like it legit belongs to Ranveer Singh's wardrobe. Take a look. © Instagram © Instagram/_trill_india Designed by Trill, Shahid's black jacket with red detailing is an exquisite piece that helped him turn heads at the Filmfare Glamour and Style Awards. The shimmery piece along with his choice of striped shades just unveiled a wild side of him that we were unaware of. © Viral Bhayani © Instagram/_trill_india Well, with Shahid joining the crazy fashion cult, things are about to get a whole lot spicier. We can't wait!
  13. Russia is planning to disconnect the entire country from the internet in order to simulate cyberwar on the country. Russians ISPs will be required to redirect web traffic from routing points within the country that will be approved by the government's telecom watchdog. © Reuters Just like every other country, Russia currently uses the global framework to connect with devices all over the world. This will be a move by the country to test cyber security and the country's capability for independent internet that does not depend on global systems. The temporary disconnection takes place in the next few weeks. © Pexels During the disconnection, the country will also rely on its own version of Domain Name System (DNS), the directory of web domains and addresses. The experiment is a part of Russia's Digital Economy National Program which aims to protect the country's digital infrastructure even if other countries cut it off. According to a report by ZDNet “The Kremlin's ultimate goal for the program is to wean the country off foreign internet providers and keep the Russian internet independent so it would be protected against potential cyber attacks,” © Pexels Since all web traffic in Russia will pass through the government's routing points, it potentially means that Moscow will be able to censor the Internet, just like in China. China's internet censorship system, also known as the Great Firewall, blocks websites and censors certain words from social media to prevent citizens from seeing content unfavourable to the regime.
  14. If you love Ryan Reynolds in and as 'Deadpool' and have wondered why there has been no 'desi' version of the Merc with a Mouth so far, then maybe this will give you your daily dose of laughter. A YouTube channel called 'Dablew Tee' has uploaded a 'desi' Deadpool swinging through the streets of Lahore and the video is hilarious. While the hunky Ryan is the anti-hero of everyone's dreams and is probably not the exact representation of cultural appropriation we might find suitable, this Pakistani Deadpool is downright funny. While you might imagine Wade Wilson stealing from bad people and driving a dope car, this one ends up stealing bananas and driving a broken motorcycle instead. © YouTube © YouTube This version is definitely funny and kind of made our day, ergo we thought we'd share the cheer with everyone. Wonder what Ryan Reynolds has got to say about it.
  15. STOP THE PRESSES! There is a new fabric that is slowly but surely taking over the world of fashion. Harvested from cotton farms in the United States, supima cotton is an incredibly exciting fabric that actually represents only 1% of all of the cotton that is grown in the world. Simply put, here is a premium wonder fabric that all Indian men absolutely need to know about. Whether you were looking for the best trousers for men, the best round neck t shirts for men, or the best thumbhole t shirts, here is why you should ABSOLUTELY make sure that they are made using supima cotton to get the absolute most bang for your buck! 1. It's Almost Twice Softer Than Regular Cotton © The March Tee As T shirts primarily tend to be a summer outfit, your level of comfort when you put them on should ideally be of paramount importance. In fact, just how comfortable your t-shirt is going to be becomes even more important when you realise that, by and large, you are also going to be using them to layer up your outfits and create different looks. As such, investing in supima cotton, that happens to be twice softer than regular cotton, pretty much acts as a no-brainer. 2. All The While Being Four Times Stronger As Well © The March Tee Now in normal cases, when a fabric tends to be incredibly soft, it normally isn't able to make any tall claims about its strength. Well, the reason why many people consider supima cotton to be the wonder fabric is because you pretty much get the best of both worlds. Despite being a lot softer than regular cotton, it is also FOUR TIMES stronger than it. This also means that you don't have to fret over the durability of supima cotton. As such, if you want to wear the best t shirts for men out there, you should make sure that their fabric composition comprises of supima cotton. 3. The Length Of Its Fibers Is Longer Too © The March Tee Unlike regular cotton fibres, the fibres of supima cotton are actually 1.5x longer. This ends up causing two immense benefits. Firstly, the longer fiber resists pulling, breaking and tearing, making it a better investment on your end. And secondly, the longer fiber makes for a smoother and softer surface, ensuring that your comfortability is greatly enhanced. 4. The Colours Look Bolder © The March Tee Another largely underrated property of supima cotton? It actually absorbs colour better than regular cotton. Which effectively means that the best plain black t shirts for men, the best white t shirts, and more importantly, t shirts of solid colours need to be made of supima cotton if you want their colours to be long-lasting and not fade away after just a few washes.
  16. If you're the kind of person who loves to pose and show off your #IWokeUpLikeThis face to the rest of the world, or the kind of person who just loves pouting #ForTheGram, you definitely need to hear this. Tyra Banks is all set to open Modelland, a 21,000-square-foot ticketed theme park at the Santa Monica shopping mall in 2019. The theme park comes straight out of her 2010 novel, 'Modelland' about her experiences in the modelling industry. Now she wants to share those experiences and make them accessible to everyone in a more tangible way. "Now with Modelland, I'm taking it 10 steps forward, giving people the opportunity to engage with the elusive world by opening it up to everyone, Men, women, families, all generations can come and enter this modelworld for a day, have a fun shopping experience, and an eventful meal. This will be the first of many.” Banks said in an interview with WWD. According to the WWD interview, this park is going to have: interactive entertainment around the modelling experience, curated retail which means a lot to shop, user-generated content that can be shared like new ways to pose, a place where visitors can “be the dream version of themselves” and clothing designed by Hollywood costume designers that you can wear. Sounds like a dream right?
  17. With the closing season of 'Game Of Thrones' almost here, Adidas has launched a collaboration of Ultra Boosts that have been inspired by the iconic show. The Game Of Thrones x Adidas pack was unofficially dropped this week and they clearly indicate the House they've been inspired from or the character. Here are some of the most obvious pairs that fans have pointed out. Take a look: 1. The Night's Watch © HBO © adidas At the north point of Westeros, the Night Watch guards the seven kingdoms like the army guarding the borders of a country. The patrol the Great Wall wearing the thickest furry coats in black. The inspired shoes take a cue from their uniform to make a black upper prime knit upper surface and give a white sheen in the white mudguard, Boost midsole, and outsole that symbolize the never-ending snow in the North. A leather lace cage puts the shoe together which represents the leather armour of the Night Watch. 2. The House Of Lannister © HBO © adidas The Lannister sigil prides itself with a lion and a "Hear Me Roar" tag line and a confluence of gold and crimson. These indicators are clearly visible in this shoe. Take a look. The red primeknit is a marker of their house, and the three gold lines mark the wealthy reputation of the Lannisters that always makes them say: via GIPHY 3. The House Of Targaryen: Daenerys © HBO © adidas With white, cream and silver accents on the laces, lace cage, heel cup, and heel tag this shoe is probably the most elegant of the lot. Targaryen is considered the noblest House of the lot, their family has distinct features of pale skin and silver hair which are accounted for in this Ultra Boost. 4. The House Of Targaryen: Dragons © HBO © adidas The House of Targaryans: the former ruling House of Westeros' sigil is appropriated for this shoe. Their slogan, "Fire And Blood" is used both here and for Dany's Ultra Boosts. 5. The House Of Stark © HBO © adidas House Of Stark is the warden of the North and their sigil entails a grey direwolf on a white background. Black and grey that represent the house have been visibly used on the prime knit surface and touches of black on the lining, mudguard, Boost midsole, rubber outsole, heel cup, and their signature three stripes. The heel has a very significant and nostalgic tagline, "Winter Is Coming" because Winter is here, and people will die. via GIPHY 6. The White Walkers © HBO © adidas The White Walkers represent the destruction that is going to consume Westeros. The White Walkers are icy dead creatures that turn people into walking zombie-like digits that initiate destruction. For its Ultra Boost, ice blue is used on the prime knit surface, white Boost mid-sole and white rubber out-sole continue the theme with hints of black and the tagline, "Winter Is Here" to send a chill down your spine. via GIPHY
  18. The success of PUBG and Fortnite has revolutionised the Battle Royale genre and every developer is scrambling to release a game. The latest trend in the gaming industry, the two games have managed to bring in billions of dollars in sales via in-game purchases and people are hooked onto them like never before. Now, there's a new legend on the block called Apex Legends. It's a free-to-play battle royale first-person shooter from Respawn and Electronic Arts in which teams compete to be the last squad standing. The game is available for download on PS4, Xbox One, and Origin for PC. What's so special about the new game? It intends to fix all the complaints we had about PUBG and Fortnite. © Respawn / Electronic Arts The game has a futuristic style set within the Titanfall universe, thirty years after the events of Titanfall 2. Many complained the characters and graphics of Fortnite are cartoonish, and this is where the new game stands apart. Each "legend" comes with its own style and abilities like fading into parallel dimensions or disappearing from sight. There are in total eight legends to choose from. Obviously, you'll still be dropping onto an island and scavenging your way to survival, but there's no solo mode. The game is entirely team based and every match consists of 20 teams of three battling to be the last group remaining. © Respawn / Electronic Arts Respawning your team-mate also has been reworked. When a player dies, they'll drop a Respawn Beacon, which a teammate can pick up and bring to a respawn station to bring them back into the fight. This process demands better teamwork and coordination, ultimately offering a more real-life experience. Just like the other two games, it also has Battle Passes that can be used to unlock nearly 100 cosmetic rewards. The first season is scheduled to start from March, giving you enough time to get accustomed with the gameplay and kick-ass in the coming months. © Respawn / Electronic Arts In-game communication has also been improved and you can execute simple message without voice or key chat. Specific waypoints allow the player to highlight items and say for example "Let's check out this place", pointing towards a shelter. Being free-to-play, the game relies on ApexCoins for its in-game currency and microtransactions. The developer, Respawn, has said that it's committed to making the game a full-service offering like Fortnite.
  19. Electricity in the air. You. Your date. Stellar ambience. You look deep into each other's eyes. Ah, the magic of the first date! First dates are all about shy glances, getting to know each other, thinking about how to broach a topic and constantly trying to gauge what's going on in the other person's mind. But are first dates really all that about beauty, naivety and nervous charm? First dates are strenuous. The anticipation, the nervousness, the struggle to put your best foot forward. No one wants to make a bad impression on the first date. Like the cliché goes, the first impression is the last impression. But sometimes, no matter how hard you try, things do not work out in the way you want them to. Blame it on yourself, or the other person, the universe or just plain dumb luck, the fact that the date is ruined won't change. A first date does have a lot of potential, though we give too much importance to it, sometimes more than necessary, it is the first initiation in the world of dating. Don't worry. If it's meant to be, it'll happen even if it got ruined once. No one forgets their first date, especially if it was a bad one. We asked six men their worst first date experience and we were mighty surprised and quite amused by what we found: 1. The Blind Date: “It was a blind date. Though we had decided not to look at each other's pictures before the date, I ended up checking her profile on Facebook. Cut to the day of the date, I was running a bit late. I saw her seated at one of the booths of the café. As I approached her, she mistook me for the waiter and asked for a glass of water. Taken aback, I meekly poured the water in her glass and quietly walked away. “Bhaiya, paani yaha lago do please” still rings in my ears. Needless to say, we never dated again.” - Chinmay, 24 2. The Unknown Occurrence: “I met this girl at a friend's birthday party. We hit it off instantly. I was attracted to her and I could tell that she was too. After a few days of talking on WhatsApp, I finally plucked the courage to ask her out. She said yes and we decided to go for lunch. Lunch progressed smoothly and we made plans for a movie. I was very happy with the way things had turned out. After the movie, as I walked her back to her place, she launched into a tête-à-tête about her current boyfriend of three years. I was completely shocked because I had assumed her to be single. I dropped her home and couldn't believe what had happened. No brainer, never went out with her again.” -Krishna, 24 3. Sweet Nothingness: “I met her through mutual friends, and I was blown away by her personality. I asked her out. On the date, I was at my charming best: witty jokes, quick banter, making her laugh. All the works. During dessert, as I was doing my impression of Marlon Brando from “The Godfather” which she was immensely enjoying, I gestured a bit too excitedly and upset the entire hot chocolate sauce which the waiter had just arrived with onto my lap and my shirt. With an incredulous look as I glanced at her, while thoroughly embarrassed and valiantly trying to not scream as the warm liquid trickled down me, I found her laughing her head off. Till today, I can't see chocolate sauce the same way again.” -Shyam, 23 4. The Inception: “We met online. After chatting for a few months, we thought that going on a date was the inevitable next step. We started off quite good as the months of talking had helped us break the initial hesitation of being awkward. As we talked, the talk turned to sci-fi movies. We started debating on the possible end of “Inception”. We both had different views on the matter and we both thought we were correct. Matters started worsening as our theories didn't match. No one was backing down. We started arguing vehemently resulting in both of us leaving the restaurant in a huff. We haven't spoken since. Leonardo DiCaprio owes me an explanation.” -Sayantan, 25 5. Best Friend Forever: “I met this girl in the first year of college. She was cute and I liked her a lot. After much speculation, I finally asked her out. She seemed to be thrilled by the prospect. So was I. The date started normally, we were both extremely nervous and making small talk. Everyone around us could make out that the date wasn't going well. Still, we were trying to act casual. Suddenly, her best friend magically turns up at the same restaurant. I did not think much about it. The friend then proceeded to sit down with us (insert awkward look) and started interrogating me about myself. It was awkward. Then, my date abruptly started crying. The friend then looked at me as if I had done something terrible. They left without a word. I do not know what the matter was till today. Now, when we pass each other in the corridors we just pretend that the other doesn't exist.” -Adwait, 20 6. Beauty And The Beast: “There was this extremely beautiful colleague of mine. Exceptionally beautiful. We were both freshers in the company. Every time I saw her, I would become utterly self-conscious and act stupid. One fine day, she asked me out. I was over the moon. How could I be so lucky? Ridiculously happy, I prepared for the date. On the fateful day, I was a nervous wreck trying to do all the things right. She seemed genuinely interested in me. I was sweating profusely and thus, I politely excused myself to go to the washroom. When I came back, I was surprised to see that she was going through my phone, which I had left on the table. She had managed to unlock it and was viewing my photo gallery in a very nonchalant way. To top it off, she had also eaten more than half of my fries. I was stunned. She looked up and with a smile on her face said “Oh! You are back!”, gave me my phone back as if nothing had happened. My crush on her evaporated as quickly as it had come. Sometimes, appearances can be deceptive. And they can eat your fries too” -Alex, 27 What was your first date disaster? Let us know!
  20. CES is all about gadgets and everything electronics, and slowly over the last few years, electric cars have made it to the expo as well. Yesterday, Nissan announced its new EV -- The Leaf. It can run for more than 360 km on a single charge and goes up against the Chevrolet Bolt, Hyundai Kona, and Kia Niro. Electric Vehicles are becoming mainstream (not yet in India!), and Hyundai wants to take this a step further. Hyundai Elevate is the company's “walking car” concept that's not actually meant to take you over a traffic jam. It would deploy robotic legs to basically walk over rough terrain. It looks like a perfect combination of Boston Dynamics and Tesla. © Hyundai The car is the first Ultimate Mobility Vehicle, intended to blend technology found in robots and electric cars, allowing it to traverse terrain that even the most capable off-road vehicles are unable to navigate. Hyundai claims that vehicles based on the concept could one day be used to save lives in response to natural disasters, such as earthquakes, forest fires or floods. "When a tsunami or earthquake hits, current rescue vehicles can only deliver first responders to the edge of the debris field," said John Suh, Hyundai vice president. © Hyundai The company explained that these vehicles are the "last mile" support group that can tread into uneven terrain where conventional vehicles cannot. They also added the vehicle has both mammalian and reptilian walking gaits and hence can climb a 5 feet wall or gap. The platform is modular, so the body can be swapped out as needs are. Hyundai Elevate's robotic legs can enable it to walk at 3 miles per hour aside from being able to climb a 1.5-meter wall and even jump a 5 feet gap. Another use case explained by the company was, the car can walk up to a front door or a few steps of the porch and make accessibility easier for the differently abled. Mr Suh also suggested that wheelchair users could be collected via the vehicles, which could "walk" up to the front door of a building with step-only access. As of now, there is no full-scale prototype and we've only seen computer generated videos of a not-to-scale model performing its featured leg stretches. Given how difficult it is to coordinate the four-leg movement, the materialization of these concepts is far away.
  21. Imagine you are sitting in a restaurant, and the server asks you, "Hello Sir/ Ma'am, what would you like to have today?" and you say, "Oh, just get me a Deepika Padukone." Well, no matter how awkward it sounds, it will be totally normal at this Texas restaurant that serves a dosa named 'Deepika Padukone'. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) on Nov 28, 2018 at 7:00am PST We didn't know about this and neither did our beloved Mastani, until she came across the tweet where the screenshot of the menu was posted.

It's 'topped with fiery hot ghost chili and stuffed with potato mix' and it looks like we already have a taker of this delicious-sounding dosa - Simmba aka Ranveer Singh. Ranveer, who is currently basking in the success of 'Simmba' that has already entered the 100 crore club, posted on his Instagram story. He shared the menu and joked, "I'd eat that." Well, going to Texas to eat the 'Deepika Padukone' dosa might be a bit too much for mere mortals like us, but you can go to Pune to eat paranthas in her name if you want. Yup, there's a restaurant that serves a 'Deepika Padukone parantha thali' in Pune. ðªð½ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ https://t.co/Kiy84YeJie — Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) January 2, 2019 Ranveer and Deepika aka DeepVeer, who got married on November 14 and 15, are currently in New York on their honeymoon.

  23. Whether you are an amateur graphic designer or a profession meme maker, we all at some point need to remove the background from an image. If you didn't know what you were doing, you would Google steps for removing the background on an image for Photoshop. It's a painstaking process that takes time and can be frustrating too. However, all your frustrations are now going to come to an end thanks to this new website called Remove.bg © MensXP The website is completely free to use as it uses artificial intelligence to accurately detect the foreground and remove the background in the picture automatically. All you need to be is upload pictures of your choice and in literally 5 seconds the site will give you a new image with the background removed. The file is in PNG format so that you can use it in Photoshop or any other editing software. © MensXP When we came across the website, it seemed too good to be true. So we tested a few images (including one of my own) to find out how it actually works. The website was surprisingly very accurate and basically made our life easier when it comes to removing the background. You can see that the website accurately cut out images. Some images that had a lot going on came up with some blurred results, however, it was still impressive. There are still a few drawbacks though as the size of the final background removed image is limited to 500 × 500 pixels. The team at Remove.bg is looking to increase the limit and give a higher resolution output. Having said, the website is completely free to use and is perfect if you want to make a quick meme.
  24. Have you ever been on a journey without plugging your earphones in or turning your car stereo up to the maximum? Have you ever had a moment where your feet just start tapping to the rhythm of a song when you visited a local cafe, bar or restaurant? We all have! I am sure my questions will help you re-live those select experiences that left a resounding mark on your soul. Such is the magic of music and the very pulse of it that intensifies even more while on the go, as it seeps through and makes one lose themselves in the surroundings. Nobody can understand this better than bikers, who are modern nomads thriving on their love for adventure and seeking a quintessential wisdom through their journeys. Bikes and music fit like puzzle pieces and is therefore the chosen expression of rebels and game-changers since the 50s. Across the world, the trend didn't take much time to catch up, given that we all felt hypnotized with the edginess that the biking culture offers. There are some songs that complement the thrill of the road. From Steppenwolfe's 'Born to be wild' to Roger McGuinn's 'Easy Rider' to Jim Morrison's 'Riders on the storm', every song identifies the adventurous attitude of non-conformist bikers. There are many Bollywood songs too which are centred around travel and biking. It's a fact that music can either make or break your mood and if done right, it leaves you with a thirst for the unchartered territory. When we talk about biking, it is not just adventure that brings bikers closer, it is also about catching just a fleeting glimpse of what is beyond the horizon. Every biker swears by the thrill of unraveling the unknown, a road that brings them together and the ecstasy of blood pumping through their veins. So how about a platform for them to come together, connect and share their unique moments on the road with one another? A live music festival for bike riders is what exactly is on offer to fulfil this demand. The amount of passion shown by bikers last year at the Riders Music Festival sealed the deal and this year we are back with a bang. To be able to let out, relax, have some delicious food and listen to your favourite musicians and showcase your passion through breath-taking stunts, will make for a wholesome experience. There has been an upsurge of live music in India and today, people are increasingly showing interest in the joy that comes with attending live gigs. We all know that no road trip is done right without a ready playlist, a bunch of crazy friends and songs that bring the past to life and weave your future. Today, it has become extremely popular to travel in order to attend renowned music festivals in different parts of the world. People cherish these experiences for a life-time! A country like India which is vibrant and rich in a myriad of beautiful locations - the heritage, people and their culture needs to be cherished more often. As bikers criss-cross this enchanting land across places like Manali, Spiti, Leh-Ladakh and Srinagar, touring the deserts of Osian, exploring the foothills of Himalayas, as they go along. They take a part of this diversified culture with them, establishing unity and oneness amongst fellow aficionados. The biking community has also created awareness for various issues like drug abuse, organ donation, HIV, road safety, child abuse and much more through their motorbike rallies. Through Riders Music Festival, we too want to promote road safety and also make sure that such a bonding of oneness continues to flourish as we nurture it through our mutual love for music. This year RMF showcases a perfect line-up of contemporary musicians with different genres of music. From Nucleya's electronic numbers, Lucky Ali's husky Bollywood charm to Mame Khan's folk music, it's going to be a blast! Adding jazz to the line -up, we have Shirley Setia's filmy vocals with Divine's new-age rapping and a heavy dose of comedy with Bhuvan Bam. Strategically placed as the weekender before Christmas amidst Delhi's winter, RMF will bring the best of everything! From superbikes to custom bikes, fine dining restaurants to Delhi's lip smacking street food, there will be a confluence of music that is unparalleled. So, get ready to rock and roll and also watch some wheelies being popped by stuntmen on 22nd and 23rd of December at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, New Delhi. I hope you wheelie like it!

  25. The very mention of Thanksgiving in the company of millennials conjures merry stills from popular American sitcoms such as 'F.R.I.E.N.D.S.', 'Modern Family' and 'How I Met Your Mother'. The very subject prods our mind's eye to envision a roasted turkey and pumpkin pie-laden elaborate feast spread across the dinner table, surrounded by a boisterous bunch of friends and family. This is often followed by the better understanding (as pitched by the sitcoms or perhaps distorted general awareness), that Thanksgiving literally translates to just that - giving thanks. Which, as a matter of fact, is true, but only partly. Yes, Thanksgiving is all about expressing your gratitude for all things good and blessed in one's life, but at the same time, it is much more than that. © 20th Century Fox Television And honestly, none of the aforementioned sitcoms have gotten it quite right. But as always, you can count on us to enlighten you about stuff you would otherwise miss out on. So, here goes. What Is Thanksgiving For Real? It was in 1960 when the English ship named The Mayflower brought in the first English Puritans, now known as the Pilgrims, from Plymouth, England to North America. That is where the Pilgrims first set up their colony and thus followed an arduous year of struggles and scarcity. However, it is believed that in 1921, the Pilgrims finally managed to have a successful harvesting season in the New World in November after learning how to plant, hunt and farm, and decided to celebrate with a three-day long feast. This celebration is said to have been attended by the local Wampanoag tribe, and thus also marks the first cordial interaction between the Natives and the Pilgrims. All of them came together to express their gratitude for the good season (and their successful survival in the New World). © Wikipedia However, what most people do not know is that in the years to follow the Pilgrims and Europeans strategically began to exterminate the Native from their land in order to colonise the better part of the land - which is known as modern day United States of America. Robert Jensen, former professor of journalism at University of Texas likens this extermination to “genocide” in this article, and states that, “While the concept of genocide, which is defined as the deliberate attempt "to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group," came into existence after World War II, it accurately describes the program that Europeans and their descendants pursued to acquire the territory that would become the United States of America.” Yet, this detail about Thanksgiving has been conveniently distorted in American history, as is the larger oral narratives and general awareness of the citizens over the span of many years. This is perhaps because the people, who knew better, wanted to do away with the knowledge of what had really conspired in the garb of Thanksgiving. The Original Menu Wasn't Just About Turkey & Pumpkin Pies Unlike what the majority believes, the original feast comprised of much more than turkey and pumpkin, while the pies weren't to make an appearance until much later. It is said that the Wampanoag tribe brought five deer to be roasted, while others showed up with wild turkey, ducks, geese, carrier pigeons, and swans. © maxpixel Culinary historians also claim that the menu also included seafood, and since it was a post-harvest celebration, nuts, corn, onions, beans, cabbage, carrots, berries, plums, grapes, and pumpkin were consumed during the celebration. Thanksgiving Wasn't A Holiday, Originally The celebration of Thanksgiving was made official after much deliberation since the celebration did not have any religious associations. According to the Telegraph, George Washington first made the National Thanksgiving Proclamation on October 3, 1789. © cz (dot) usembassy However, it was Franklin D. Roosevelt who finally set the exact date of Thanksgiving in stone. So it was decided in 1939-1941 that Thanksgiving would be a national holiday on the fourth Thursday of November every year. Unlike what pop-culture wants us to believe, there are greater details that are attached to Thanksgiving that most of us are unaware of. However, we do believe in revelling in the spirit of celebrations, and thoroughly uphold the better saying 'bhavnaaon ko samjho'. So, a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who is celebrating, and also to those too who aren't, because you can never be too grateful in life, can you?
