  1. Dressing in summers can make anyone fall in a style rut immediately. And if you live in a country where the weather is always at extreme levels, chances are you have faced sartorial disaster a lot more often. Fortunately, we have made it easier for you. By building a wardrobe with key pieces that keep your style feeling fresh and effortless, here's our list of summer must-haves for you to add, stat. 1. Get Into Prints Right Away © Getty Images Mastering the art of wearing printed shirts is a task, but certain prints will let you be in its safe territory. A Hawaiian classic shirt or an effortless floral printed style keeps the essence of summer intact while letting you upgrade your look. Wear it over bright coloured shorts for an ideal easy style statement during the hottest summer days. 2. Redo The Semi-Formal Look © Getty Images Wearing a three-piece suit for a boardroom meeting in summers is one of the trickiest style moves. Instead of opting for heavy woven fabrics, go light in this weather. Wear an unstructured blazer made from cotton-blend or linen and layer it over a short-sleeved oxford or your favourite summer tee. 3. Loafer Liners Are Much Needed © Getty Images If you thought that sprinkling some talcum powder in your shoes will keep your feet sweat-free, you are highly mistaken. We recommend you opt for no-show liner socks that wick away the stench and negate any chance of discomfort. 4. Cropped Trousers © Instagram/Shahid Kapoor When you need something smarter and also comfortable this summer, opt for cropped trousers, crafted from cotton or linen fabric. These pants will step up your style as you pair them with a T-shirt or a button-down shirt. 5. Swap Your Sneakers For Espadrilles © Getty Images Give your brogues and sneakers a break. Espadrilles are a summer essential that ensure your feet breathe. Believe us, they are as breezy as your flip flops and you can wear them without being plagued with an unsavoury odour. 6. Upgrade Your Tee Game © Instagram/Kartik Aaryan A good looking t-shirt forms a cornerstone for a wardrobe and summers are a great time to make a braver fashion choice. Invest in oversized logo t-shirts, colour-block tees or henleys as they are the perfect way to ace any casual look.
  2. Let's face it, we all have been there, thinking if we should go for it or not. We have all had that locker room talk, discussing all sorts of things about our body hair (and yes, about hair down there as well), and what to do with it. Whether one's partner prefers it all shaved off, trimmed, or present in all its natural glory. The thing is, no matter what, at least once in your lifetime, you will go for a session to trim, shave or wax your body hair off. Now, here is where things get tricky - what do you actually go for - do you shave it all off, wax it off, or just trim it off? Here are a few things that you ought to consider before you finally make the jump: 1. The Pain © Getty Images Remember Steve Carrel getting a wax in 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin'? Well, yes, it can be that painful. Even the manliest of men tend to cry like babies when they go for their first waxing session. Furthermore, The entire experience of getting hot wax applied on your body and then a bunch of hair and some skin pulled off in one go, can leave some serious psychological scars, especially if you plan to go for a full Brazilian. In case you think that you have a very shallow tolerance, we suggest you simply forget waxing, and instead, get things shaved or better yet, trimmed. 2. The Frequency © Getty Images As painful as it may be, waxing your hair off has its advantages. The first and foremost is the fact that you don't need to get it done that often. Shaving, on the other hand though, will ensure that you reach out for that razor every now and then. Also, do consider the fact that the hair regrowth gets denser with time, as does it get quicker. With trimming, you won't get as denser regrowth as with shaving. But, you will need to trim your hair often. 3. The Occasion © Getty Images Chances are that if you find yourself reading this article, you may have a special evening coming up, or an occasion, where you may have to take your clothes off in front of some people (or someone). If that is the case, we suggest you take the timing of your endeavour into consideration. Also, consider that if you plan to do it yourself, you may have some accidents that may leave a cut or a knick where you don't want it to. Try getting things sorted two or three days before your special day. 4. The Outfit © Getty Images If the occasion or the evening that you have planned, does not include you getting in your birthday suit, chances are, you may have some leeway when it comes to getting things done. If you still plan on wearing something that will show some chest and you plan to clean up your act (as you should), we suggest that you go for a close trim, instead of a shave or a wax. That way, you minimise pain, get things done quickly and do not change much. 5. The Comfort © Getty Images This is actually the key to everything - how comfortable are you in getting any of it done? More importantly, how comfortable are you getting things done in some intimate areas by someone else? Of course, you can try and get things sorted yourself, but we would advise against that if you plan to get things done properly. If you plan on getting only a few areas done, selectively, doing it yourself is an easy way to go about. However, if you plan on being comprehensive, do yourself a favour and hire someone to do it.
  3. You know what's more important than the way you dress, how you speak, the confidence you exude and the personality you carry? It's how you make a first impression on someone and that overtakes anything and everything you're trying to be or are. Making a first impression on an autopilot has to be good, duh, but that's not entirely your thing to decide. What I mean is, first impression is usually decided by a crowd around you or the person you're meeting for the first time and once that impression is made, you can't really change it, because no one really believes in second chances when it comes to first impressions. In fact, you might have heard the saying 'first impressions are last impression' and there is a lot of truth in that. © Eros International Making a first impression on a girl you're meeting for the first time is equally important. That's because if you're really in to her or meeting her for the first time, you really want to crank it up a bit and be the best version of yourself but you don't want to over-do it. You want to remain calm and subtle, ambitious and confident and someone she'll gel with easily. Here are 3 important things to keep a check on if you wish to make a good first impression in front of a woman you really like. (1) Stand Tall Well, literally and figuratively. By this I mean, don't stand in front of her with a hunched back because that denotes lack of confidence and dullness and you certainly don't want to give out those vibes. Correct your posture, stand tall and talk with extreme confidence when you do talk to her. Don't be over-confident. That's a really big turn off. Just be yourself and don't look down and talk to her. Look in to her eyes and make conversation, talk loud enough for her to hear you clearly and don't act cocky, boast or show off. She's on a lookout to spot these things in you and if she does, you're out bro. Just stand tall! © Pinterest (2) Don't Focus On Yourself Too Much I know it's a tough situation at times, especially when you're an introvert and you have to deal with anxiety every time you meet someone new. But the key is to not focus on making yourself comfortable as much as making the other person comfortable because when you make the other person feel comfortable, you automatically calm down because you both are calm and are within good energy together. The energy YOU HAVE created! By shifting your concern on someone else you shift focus on the knee deep anxiety that was making a home in you, while you were trying to make a good first impression. © Filmkraft Productions Pvt. Ltd (3) Be Good At Small Talk Of course if you meet her for the first time, you wouldn't divulge personal information, neither would you ask her to do the same. This is where small talk really comes in handy. If you start making small talk, you might catch her interest over something and then maybe you can start talking about that very topic. Small talk plays a crucial role in connecting with other people. Just keep the conversation flowing and unless you've stalked her before hand, ask her questions every now and then, through the small talk to get to know her better, before eventually making the conversation a bit more personal. © Eros Entertainment There are obviously other things you need to keep in mind to make a good first impression. For instance, always keep smiling, be on time and don't make the other person wait, be comfortable in your clothing, have an introduction prepared, don't ask too many personal questions in one go or talk shop all the time and most importantly, breath! If you follow through with these plus the important ones mentioned above, there is no way you can make a bad impression on her, or anyone else ever.
  4. Grooming down there can be tricky business. It can also be rather intimidating for someone trying to groom down there for the first time. Did you know that there is a list of things that you should keep in mind before you groom down there? And the thing is, these things will make a substantial difference to your grooming routine. 1. Always Disinfect Your Razor/Trimmer Before Use © Getty Images Start with rinsing off the blades with hot water. Then, add a small dollop of dish soap to the blades, and scrub the razor with a toothbrush to remove any grime present. Finish with washing the soap off the razor using hot water. Rinse off the blades with hot water. If you want to go a step further, you could apply a cleaning agent like rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide. 2. Start Off With Scissors © Getty Images You can start off with trimming your pubic hair. This not only cuts your time to half in terms of using a trimmer or a razor but also streamlines the approach. 3. It's Best To Keep It Uniform It looks a little funny if you groom down there but let your chest hair be or the other way. If you've booked yourself a grooming session or scheduled time for it at home, make sure you go all the way. 4. Take A Shower Before © Getty Images Taking a shower helps in more ways than one. Firstly, it makes the whole process hassle-free and secondly, the after shave skin will be extremely smooth to touch. 5. Use Rash Creams Generously © Getty Images Rash creams are a blessing to humanity in general. Two pumps of a rash cream can save you from itching and razor burns later. 6. Use Gel-Based Razors © Getty Images If you prefer razors to clean up, you should probably prefer gel-based razor that comes with lubrication with aloe vera or any other soothing agent that quickens the process of cleaning down there.
  5. Ayushmann Khurrana came, he saw and he conquered. He is one of those actors who has managed to achieve the status of a star despite being an outsider. His unconventional choices have always set him apart from all the others. He has had a track record of picking up subjects which somewhere show the mirror of the society that we are living in. Ayushmann's upcoming film, 'Article 15', is loosely based on the Badaun rape case where two girls were raped and hanged. © Zee Music Company The storyline is another proof of how our Indian cinema is changing for good. Ayushmann is seen as a police cop who has taken the charge of investigating the case and you would see the harsh reality through the trailer. Kya aap tayar hai farq laane ke liye?#Article15Trailer out at 4 PM@anubhavsinha @ZeeStudios_ @ZeeMusicCompany #ManojPahwa #IshaTalwar @sayanigupta @Mdzeeshanayyub #KumudMishra @Ashishsverma @sirfgaurav #RonjiniChakraborty #SushilPandey #Shubrojyoti #AakashDhabade pic.twitter.com/ulAZCfsuyI — Ayushmann Khurrana (@ayushmannk) May 30, 2019 'Farq bahut kar liya, ab farq layenge' - The trailer does complete justice to the movie and we can't wait to see it on the big screen. The movie is all set to hit the screens on June 28 and the trailer has given us an insight into what the film has to offer. The film also stars Isha Talwar, Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra, M Naser, Ashish Verma, Sushil Pandey, Subrajyoti Bharat and Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub. © Zee Music Company The film talks about Article 15 of the Indian Constitution that prohibits discrimination by the state against any citizen on the basis of religion, race, caste, ***, and place of birth. Here, take a look at the trailer: We are wondering if the trailer is this impactful, how hard-hitting will the movie be? Here are 5 things we really liked about the trailer: 1. Ayushmann Khurrana has never disappointed us with his acting skills and we can say the same for this movie as well. He is seen in a completely different avatar. He has done many films that addressed social issues in a very light-hearted way. This time he has gone all out to address an issue which has been affecting our society in a serious way. He has surely raised the bar quite high. Iss Trailer Aur Baaki Trailers Mein 'Farq' Hai! Kya Aap Taiyaar Hain, Farq Ki Shuruwat Ke Liye?#Article15Trailer OUT NOW!#Article15 In Cinemas June 28 https://t.co/K6aHLTl92v@anubhavsinha #ManojPahwa #IshaTalwar @sayanigupta @Mdzeeshanayyub @ZeeStudios_ @ZeeMusicCompany pic.twitter.com/9e43EJ6jR3 — Ayushmann Khurrana (@ayushmannk) May 30, 2019 2. The trailer shows the film has an engaging storyline and you would empathise with the pain of the victims and their families. We are way too curious to know how the case is solved by Ayushmann in the movie. 3. Not just Ayushmann Khurrana, but all other actors have kept their best foot forward, going by what we see in the trailer. The trailer shows us glimpses of all the great things that is in store for us. © Zee Music Company 4. There is a way that Anubhav Sinha tells his stories. If you have seen 'Mulk', you would surely have an idea. The reality is NOT moulded but presented in its naked state. 'Article 15' is of a similar nature and well, if you have liked movies like 'Gangaajal', then we can tell you this one is surely apt for you. धरà¥à¤® , नसà¥à¤² ,à¤à¤¾à¤¤à¤¿, लिà¤à¤ ,à¤à¤¨à¥à¤®à¤¸à¥à¤¥à¤¾à¤¨ à¤à¤ à¤à¤¸à¤¾ मà¥à¤²à¥à¤ à¤à¤¹à¤¾à¤ à¤à¥à¤ भà¥à¤¦à¤­à¤¾à¤µ नहà¥à¤ हà¥à¤à¤¾ à¤à¤¬ फ़रà¥à¤à¤¼ लाà¤à¤à¤à¥#Article15.

The way the dialogues have been written will surely leave an indelible mark on you as a viewer. They are simple yet hard-hitting. Are you ready to face the harsh reality?

  6. Playing cricket for the most dominating force in the game, Team India, is not easy. More than the opponents, the passionate fans of the Men in Blue stay ready with a mouthful when an athlete does not perform, is struggling with a bad form or fails to win matches for his side regardless of how difficult the situation was when he got to the crease. One such athlete is Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who has been questioned, taunted and criticised about the way he plays in the hour of need for the Bleed Blue side. The fact that the former skipper is getting old, does not help either. But during India's second warm-up match in the ICC World Cup 2019 which was against Bangladesh, Dhoni looked like his old self. Like a stallion, with nothing but brute strength flowing through his veins. Scoring his ton in just 78 deliveries, the Ranchi born was making the ball fly left, right and centre on command, bringing the Indian batting order back in line with the help of KL Rahul, after an abysmal start to the innings with openers Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma disappointing yet again. So when Dhoni scored his century in fashion with a strong six over the bowler's head and raised his bat in the air to an awestruck audience, an overjoyed Virat Kohli was seen abusing in excitement, acknowledging his teammate's achievement. Indian stand-up comedian Papa CJ uploaded this video from the friendly match between India and Bangladesh last evening: Classic Dhoni and classic Virat ððð pic.twitter.com/jplLRvAVPy — Papa CJ (@PapaCJ) May 28, 2019 Albeit, Dhoni has been struggling a little bit with his form in the 50 over format of the game lately, but he is no stranger to hitting big shots. Likewise, Kohli is no stranger to expressing his emotions with the help of some cuss words. Therefore, Papa CJ's caption: “Classic Dhoni and classic Virat” makes absolute sense. And while parents would have had a tough time explaining their kids what the Indian skipper was caught mouthing on national television, his emotions were well understood by the fans of Indian cricket and those of MS Dhoni. Twitter joined in and congratulated Dhoni on his brilliant knock: Dhoni is such a beast. — Saqib Mansoor (@wearyscribe) May 28, 2019 Mahi maar raha hain — #@ππ|£ #$@vv@n+ (@AmitSawant4686) May 28, 2019 What a knock from Dhoni! ððLove you so much ðð #MSD pic.twitter.com/Ig4bVXsjvM — HARSH Chopra (@imchoprahc) May 29, 2019 Dhoni dispatched ball out of the park for a 6ï¸â£ in style.

  7. The Olympia is the showdown when it comes to bodybuilding and physique competitions of the world. Athletes grind and grind to achieve their pro cards to reach the coveted stage and rub shoulders with the world-class athletes to get their hands on the coveted trophy called the Sandow. The Sandow has a rich history too which can be a topic for a different day altogether. © Getty Images The 2018 Olympia was a major shocker for most followers in the sport and more importantly the men's physique and men's bodybuilding categories. In the men's physique, Brandon Hendrickson dethroned the 4-time champion Jeremy Buendia and in men's bodybuilding, it was Shawn Rhoden who took the coveted Sandow off the hands of the SEVEN-time champion Phil Heath. The fans yet seem to be split on who deserved it more. Half are condemning the new Mr O whereas the other half are cherishing the new champ. © Getty Images Here are a few things that you should know of Shawn Rhoden and why do I believe he deserved to win the Sandow this year: 1. He Got The Fans Reminiscing Of The 'Golden' Era A lot of bodybuilding legends including Arnold Schwarzenegger have openly criticized that men's bodybuilding is a dying sport where the new-era bodybuilders only focus on size and muscle, totally compromising the aesthetics which was the utmost focus of the bodybuilder's of Arnold's era. The huge midsection and the gut that made bodybuilders look pregnant were the trademarks of these mass monsters. Rhoden, when he stepped on stage, boasted size, fullness, and muscularity without looking like the criticized mass monsters. He had a good balance of aesthetics along with the muscle and got the fans reminded of the golden era of bodybuilding. 2. He Was In The ICU Just Seven Months Before Olympia Shawn was forced to pull out of Arnold Classic 2018 due to a health scare and was in a very terrible health condition. Shawn was on nobody's radar and nobody expected him to turn up and dethrone the most dominating bodybuilder of this decade. In an Instagram post before Arnold Classic 2018, he wrote - "Not only did I have the horrible flu going around but my haemoglobin level was at 4 (should be around 14). I lost A LOT of blood due to two ulcers bleeding into my intestine over a period of time. I was given 6 blood transfusions that brought my body back to levels where my body could reproduce enough blood on its own to normal levels. Since it is so close to the Arnold, I am disappointed that I must announce that I will not be competing in this years Arnold Classic 2018." 3. He Is The Oldest Mr Olympia At the ripe age of 43, Shawn Rhoden tied the record for the oldest Mr Olympia champ along with Chris Dickerson. Chris won the Mr O title at the same age back in 1982. The way Shawn turned up this year and beat one of the most celebrated and accomplished Mr O of this decade has been a welcome surprise for the fans. Him dominating the stage has also got many people anticipating the return of the Golden Era. Author bio: Pratik Thakkar is the co-founder and director of GetSetGo Fitness, an online fitness company.

  8. If you're a gym bunny, you'll definitely agree with the statement that good shirtless selfies can act as an extremely potent motivator, when it comes to fitness. We should all be fit, because of a million reasons that we read about every single day, and the vanity bit associated with shirtless selfies are just a bi-product of that. However, if that pushes us to the gym and Yoga studios, what's wrong with that? We all like validation for our hard work, and that perhaps is the most harmless of them all. (c) Instagram/mrkhanna So homies, keep on clicking those gym selfies, if they make you happy. Haters will hate, no matter what. To help you out, here are 3 clever, tried and tested hacks to help you look more muscular and shredded in shirtless selfies. 1. Check the lighting. By that, we don't essentially mean that there should be plenty of light in your frame. Sometimes, you can do with little light as well. What you need to take care of is the angle. For indoor shots, like locker room shots or bathroom shots, top lighting works the best. If a light on the ceiling is the only source of light, stand underneath that and take 2 steps back. This arrangement will make your abs pop, and give extra definition to all your muscles. (c) Instagram/ranveersingh If it's daytime and you're standing next to a window, or any place with daylight, avoid letting the light hit you straight, flat on your body. Let it come from the side. Diagonal with a steep angle works the best because it makes your muscles look extra defined. (c) Instagram/soorajpancholi 2. When are you clicking it. Timing is important. If you want to look shredded, it's important to make sure you avoid clicking selfies when your body is retaining a lot of water. Immediately after a workout is a great time to ensure that does not happen. Early in the morning, before ingesting anything works out as well. Keep your core tight, suck your gut in, stretch your abdomen a bit, and you're sorted! (c) Instagram/varundvn 3. Your skin plays a big role in deciding how the selfie will come out. Your skin needs to be moisturised to be able to look more defined, because glossy surfaces look well-defined - it's common sense, really. So make sure you apply some moisturiser all over just before clicking it. However, you don't need that if you have just completed your workout and you're all sweaty from it anyway. Also, our skin looks the best right after a shower, so that may just be the best time to click a shirtless selfie. (c) Instagram/ranveersingh Keep them in mind and get ready for all the DMs.
  9. It's true, hard workouts equal hard results and it takes lots of effort to get a great body. Your entire hard work means nothing if you can't recover from your killer sessions. © Getty Images The faster you can recover, the more intensity you can keep up in your sessions. If you are looking to speed up your recovery so you can get bigger and stronger, then follow these 5 guidelines: 1) Embrace Your Post Workout Meal: You need food to be energized. Many of you are hungry and are low in energy after a workout. You get energy from food and beverages. Ergo, you need to eat some carbs and protein post-exercise. How much? That's subjective. A good range would be 40-80g of carbs and 30-40g of protein. 2) Short Naps: In addition to a good night's sleep (if your schedule will allow it) get in at least one 15 to 20-minute nap during the day. These little short naps help to aid in recovery. Small naps are good for your heart, blood pressure, stress levels and even weight management. When you sleep your body recovers. 3) Hydration And Caffeine: Drinking adequate amounts of water will help you to flush out toxins from your muscles. your body needs water to function; a small two per cent dehydration will result in a 10 per cent reduction in strength. © Getty Images Proper hydration also helps to keep our joints lubricated. Drinking water will lead to improved gym performance and fuller muscles. Caffeine has shown to suppress fatigue and might help you to boost you after your workout. Have a cup of coffee pre-workout if you like it. 4) Active Rest Recovery Is Your Friend: Rest days give your muscles a hard-earned break from yourself beating at the gym. If you feel up to it, some light movement like grocery or clothes shopping, an easy bike ride, watching a movie, or even doing mobility drills could help in recovery-promoting effects as well. These strategies come under active recovery. Light cardio after a heavy strength training session will help relieve soreness by stimulating blood flow and improving circulation to the muscles. If you experience muscular tightness, then foam rolling can be an excellent way to fight this for flexibility but don't expect any wonder to happen via foam rolling, a new meta-analysis on foam rolling says its a complete waste of time just helps in some flexibility. 5) Reduce Overall Stress: Acute stress-which comes from training is a good thing. Chronic stress from other sources like work, relationship, inadequate sleep, etc can significantly affect how you feel on a day-to-day basis as well as how quickly you recover. Too much stress can drastically delay your recovery time between workouts. When hard workouts are tossed into the volatile combination of high chronic stress and an already tired body, you are asking your body to finally break down in the form of dull results or, worse. © Getty Images Any form of stress in your life is going to take a toll on your overall well-being and your body's capacity to take on anything further. Take steps to reduce your stress level to ensure you can jump back faster. Do something you really enjoy, make yourself happy, and surround yourself with people who love you and support you. Recovery is a crucial part of any fitness-related goal. No recovery = no results! Author bio: Yashovardhan Singh is an online fitness coach with www.getsetgo.fitness, an online fitness platform.

  10. When Arnold Schwarzenegger said "I'll be back" in 'The Terminator' (1984), he truly meant it. Almost 34 years later, he's really coming back for the fan-favourite franchise, 'Terminator: Dark Fate'. 'The Terminator' was the much-liked franchise amongst the kids who grew up in the 80s and 90s and it was the best action movie to come at its time. © TriStar Pictures And now, half the cast is back to recreate the action-packed thrill we've missed all these years. Yes, you read that right, half the cast is back! Watch the trailer below: The film is set 27 years after what happened in 'Terminator 2: Judgement Day' and as always, there is someone on a mission to protect someone, giving it its truest essence. Here's what's evident in 'Terminator: Dark Fate', based on the trailer (1) Linda Hamilton Is Back Linda Hamilton is back as Sarah Connor and her reprisal of the character after 27 years is what's convincing the fans that 'Dark Fate', as a sequel, will be completely different and better than the last few. The franchise has hit some bleak spots in the past with a fresh cast and an ambiguous plotline but this time, Sarah is back to save someone from the 'borgs again (not Jon Connor) and she looks pretty damn good. © Paramount Pictures (2) T-800 Is Back A Well The iconic T-800, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger is actually back, making this an original sequel, from last where they left off. Last we remember, Arnie aka T-800 died in a molten pit of lava in T2 and now he's back. I am sure there's a good explanation of how and why he's back. Although the trailer doesn't show him more than once, I am sure he has a good 'back' story. © Paramount Pictures (3) This Is The Original Sequel To 'Terminator 2' Although yes, 'Dark Fate' is the sixth instalment in the 'Terminator' franchise, it's a direct sequel to 'T2: Judgement Day', nudging out 'Terminator: 3 Rise of the Machines', 'Terminator: Salvation' and 'Terminator: Genisys'. So, if you haven't seen anything in this franchise after 'Terminator 2', you're pretty damn okay because they plan to pick up the story where they left it, from 'Judgement Day'. The film is pretty much designed to be a start of a new trilogy and that's something that makes us incredibly happy, especially after 'Salvation' and 'Genisys' tanked drastically at the box-office. © Paramount Pictures (4) James Cameron Is Back B**ches After directing T1 and then T2, Cameron took a little break from the franchise and maybe that's why the later instalments couldn't match up to the first two. James is back to produce the third part while Tim Miller who directed 'Deadpool' will be directing it. © Twitter (5) Skynet Is The Root Of All problems The computer system from T2, which was hell-bent on exterminating humanity altogether is back. Although it was destroyed by John Connor, Skynet is sending a liquid metal terminator from the future to terminate a hybrid cyborg human, in the present, in this one. © Paramount Pictures (6) The Story Has Shifted To Mexico Tim Miller directed 'Logan' as well, which was showcasing struggles around the American border quite expansively in the film. Now, the narrative for Tim's next film, 'Dark Fate' has shifted from LA to Mexico. While most of it shows trains and cars, the trailer begins with a road sign that says 'BIENVENIDOS A LA CUIDAD DE MEXICO'. Maybe Mexico has some answers and hence they all bundle up and go from California to Mexico to save some lives. © Paramount Pictures (7) The Plot Remains The Same Even though the new franchise has some brand new faces, the plotlines more or less the same. We have Mackenzie Davis, who plays a hybrid cyborg human and we have Natalie Reyes, whose character is named Dani Ramos, according to the trailer and she seems pretty human. Perhaps Reyes is the one who has some connection to Mexico in the film. Davis's character is definitely taking the role of Arnie's in T2, while she's trying to protect Reyes from the new blood-thirsty Terminator, played by Gabriel Luna. © Paramount Pictures Okay, this all seems too familiar. How? Here's what the official synopsis reads: "27 years after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, a new, modified liquid metal Terminator (Gabriel Luna) is sent from the future by Skynet in order to terminate Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes), a hybrid cyborg human (Mackenzie Davis), and her friends. Sarah Connor comes to their aid, as well as the original Terminator, for a fight for the future." Haven't we all seen, nay lived this before? Like the advanced cyborg is a threat to Skynet in years to come and it's here to protect a human from the Mexico border, even though we're not sure why she's from Mexico and what's the link, to begin with. Also, did you notice in the trailer, T-800 has aged? Isn't he a machine? Yes, we saw his character get destroyed in T2, but maybe there were more than one created back then? If he was sent back in time, maybe that can also explain why Arnie exists in the 2022 timeline too. But why has he aged? Could it be that Skynet's technology is merging with human's genetic design and creating androids that grow old, just like us? That could be an interesting possibility. We need to know a lot more than what's shown in this trailer and hopefully, they will release another trailer soon. © Paramount Pictures Although the story has jumped an entire timeline which includes Sarah Connor, John Connor and even Kyle Reese, the soldier in the human resistance, it still stitches the plots together somehow. Maybe, just maybe Dani Ramos has some sort of familial connection in Mexico, which in turn is responsible for the existence of Kyle Reese in the future, making it all a loop of how it actually began? Could be an interesting possibility © Paramount Pictures For now, we're going to sit back and wait for this fantastic sequel to come out after 27 years of watching the last one and pray it's just as good, or even better. 'Terminator: Dark Fate' releases on November 1, 2019.
  11. A successful community only needs three core elements to flourish and begin producing results. Your community will require some care and effort to flourish, but with the right strategies in place, you'll ensure that the value your community produces continues to increase as time goes by. Let's take a look at the three elements that make for a successful community. Content Content is the life-blood of any community. Content is what is posted by your members, and by your team. In the early days, you'll need to seed discussions and respond to customers posts regularly. It's important to demonstrate that you're actively involved with the community and encouraging others to post and extend discussions. Over time, user-generated content will begin to propel your community forwards. A great way to bring in new users is to write valuable articles using Pages, or the Blog apps. Writing about issues relevant to your community can help position you as an expert and will be shared widely by your community. You don't have to be an expert writer to create articles. There are free apps such as Grammarly to help polish your prose. A great way to quickly generate new content is to quote other news sources and offer your own commentary. For example, if your community is based around TV shows, right now you could easily create a new article for your site based on Game of Thrones by quoting a small part of two or three existing articles denouncing how the quality of writing on Game of Thrones has slipped and offer your contrasting thoughts. Just remember to link back to the original article and check the source site to make sure they are happy for this to happen. HubSpot has a great article on how to quote without stealing. Traffic To really start building your community, you need a steady flow of visitors from outside sources. The content you create will drive traffic into your community, but it sometimes needs a helping hand. Content from inside established communities can drive millions of impressions a month from search engines. It's worth making sure you're making good use of the built-in SEO tools. We recently performed a thorough review of how Invision Community optimises for SEO including adding features such as lazy loading. It is also a good idea to put your community link in your email signature, and share it widely via social media. A good number of our successful community owners have created a Facebook page, and a Twitter account for their community and share their best content over those social channels. Email is still a very powerful tool for creating an audience. We send out a monthly newsletter here at Invision Community, and articles we share with it are viewed at least four times as much as other articles. Engagement Once you have a steady stream of visitors consuming content on your site, you need to engage them to convert them from a casual visitor to a registered member, and then beyond. The first step is to get your visitor to register. While we recommend you make many forums open for guest viewing, we do recommend that you ask for guests to register before posting. We recently added a new feature called 'Post Before Registering' that allows guests to reply and sign-up in one simple activation flow. Most members initially join for selfish reasons. Perhaps they have a broken iPhone and want to ask for help. Or perhaps they came to ask how to fix a code problem. Generally speaking, they do not join out of altruism and a strong desire to help others. To convert a one-time poster to a regular contributor can take some work. Ensuring the default notifications include email when a new post is made will help encourage the poster to return. You can also tag the member in other discussions you feel may be interesting to them. We recently added a few new engagement features that also showcases other interesting content in notification based emails. Taking the time to welcome the member, and showing them how to access the best from your community can go a long way to making your site stand out. Taking the time to focus on these three core elements will help your community grow and prosper. You may not see overnight results, but over time you will start to see a huge difference in visitors, registrations and returning members. That wraps it up for this article. We'd love to know your thoughts on our suggestions and any strategies that you've used in the past that have worked well.
  12. Sometimes confidence takes time to build, especially if you're an introvert or shy. You can lose your confidence when you think your self-esteem is at stake and nothing you do can help you bring it back. The thing is, confidence comes back when you need it to and there are ways to work around that. For instance, if you feel like you're low on confidence while talking to a girl, there are things to keep in mind or do, to increase your level of confidence. But remember, it does not happen overnight and takes some amount of effort to work on the same. © Pintrest So, the next time you're at a bar and see someone you really like and want to approach but think you lack confidence, it can be made easy. Talking to girls isn't that tough TBH. It's not a piece of cake either but with the right amount of self-assurance and belief, you can make it rather easy for you, because inherently, man is a social animal! So, here are 3 things you can do to work on your level of confidence, before approaching a woman, to talk to her: (1) Start Engaging With Strangers Nope, I don't mean that in a creepy way. When I say engage with strangers I mean, start talking to people you don't know, around you. I don't mean stalk someone or harass someone, but if you engage with anyone outside of your comfort zone, it helps you exercise and acknowledge your confidence. If you're at a store or even walking down the street, you can start a conversation with anyone about anything of relevance. © Pintrest Approach a support staff at a restaurant, or a customer service staff member at a store and ask help for finding something, or an opinion on a product. While at a restaurant, have a conversation with the waiter about the best dishes they have to offer. Basically, just engage in usual banter with absolute strangers. This gives you the ability to talk to more people and makes you comfortable in holding conversations socially. (2) Start Having Smaller Interactions Now that you've built some confidence in starting a conversation with someone and have strengthened your social skills a little, start having conversations with people around you, not necessarily with the girl you like. Build your social skills further by having some meaningful interactions. If you're at a social setting, approach a group of people and start a conversation on an interesting topic. © Pintrest If you're joining a group discussion, definitely have your opinion ready and get responses from people. Talk to people at work and engage them in conversations. This exercise will make it easier for you to converse without holding back and checking twice on the approach of your confidence. Once you establish proper social and interaction skills, you're ready to go on ahead and talk to anyone! (3) Give Your Conversation A Purpose & Make Eye Contact Now that you've moulded your social skills, it's good to head out into public spaces and try and approach women. If you like to head to a bar and meet women, that's a perfect setting because that's where maximum engagement happens with the opposite ***. Apart from dating apps, which are easier to access if you want to talk to women, public places have certain nuances that you have to keep in check before approaching someone. You body language, for instance, has to be on point or else it's one of the first things to turn someone off. © Pintrest When you're approaching someone, make sure you establish adequate eye-contact. If you make eye contact with a girl you like, it's easier to approach her, knowing she's interested too. Just be sure not to stare and know the difference between mutual eye contact and constantly staring at her. If she's interested she will keep making eye contact with you. When you do approach her, start a good conversation and don't even think of using pick up lines. They're not cool and she will definitely run away. Start by asking how her day was perhaps and take it away from there and if she's interested in the conversation, she will definitely stay instead of making excuses to go back to doing what she was. Give your conversations a purpose and don't make them arbit or sleazy! Building confidence to talk to women isn't rocket science really. It just needs some amount of homework and belief in yourself, along with a few exercises to get you there!
  13. This article contains heavy spoilers. Proceed with caution! The 5th episode of the World's greatest show aired early morning today and most of us, who need to deduce fair points at the end of the day from it, have already seen it. Well, to be fair it wasn't as bad as the last two episodes, as this one seemed more real and impactful. There were loose ends, of course, but because it was rounding up towards the finale, there were some closure points as well. But alternatively so, the episode lacked a lot of insightful tools we usually look forward to while watching an episode of 'Game of Thrones' and because of that, there were some things that didn't make sense. © HBO Apart from the much-awaited 'Cleganebowl' and the death and destruction in and of King's Landing, everything that was shown was packed in a hurry, like most of this season has been. That's been our only takeaway from most of the episodes in Season 8, which also make us question some major plot-lines and small little logical nuances, missing from the show. For instance, a beautifully narrated story, comes to a drastic end, with little or no effort made towards it. Dany taking over the throne literally fell flat in making a singular impression upon the fans, and that's quite sad. Here are 5 things that didn't make sense in episode 5, season 8 of 'Game of Thrones': (1) Fairly Poor Character Arcs Towards The End The character arcs for certain characters have drastically fallen. What was built on a proper premise with a beautiful storyline, ended with little or no closure whatsoever. For example, Jon's character throughout 'GoT' has been on a rise and he was always shown as someone who will eventually save the day. Right after he was brought back from the dead, till he fought the White Walkers far beyond the wall, his character kept up with pace and adequacy, till it eventually fell flat in season 7. He was practically doing nothing in the last two wars, except sharing some screen-time running about and using his sword sparingly. It was as good as him not being there, which in the books, he really wasn't. He dies in the books, so I am assuming the writers couldn't figure in two years what to actually do with his character, which is partially shameless and mostly callous! © HBO Similarly, Arya's purpose to kill the queen, or Jaime's to fight or save Cersei, was all washed out in vain when the Mad Queen decided to destroy the city, making that the only focus of the entire show, giving their characters little or no purpose towards the end of the most iconic show ever. (2) How Does The Most Important Villain Die Under Dust And Rubble? For almost 7 seasons, we assumed the most important villain was the Night King, up until episode 3 where was he was destroyed, making Cersei the ultimate villain the North would have to face. But no! Cersei barely put up a fight before she died with her lover when the structure crumbled and killed both her and Jaime! I feel it was the most useless death for one of the most important villains in history. Not like we were expecting a grandiose execution or another walk of atonement, but a proper face-off between her and Dany was something that should have naturally happened. Instead, the writers decided to finish off her character crying in the arms of her lover and eventually dying with him. Just didn't go down too well for some of us! © HBO (3) Arya's Entire Build-Up With No Purpose Since season 6, we've been hearing Arya's wish to kill the queen, aka Cersei. She's headed towards King's Landing in season 7, when Hot Pie tells her that the Starks have won back Winterfell from the Boltons. But even so, her eventual goal is to kill the queen. The Red Woman had also predicted she'll shut 'green eyes' and up until now, we thought she'd be killing Cersei. She left Winterfell, with The Hound, for the same purpose, didn't she? So, what happens when she reaches KL? The entire build-up is in vain because Arya's just picking herself up for the next one hour, while Dany is creating havoc in KL. Yes, Arya killed the Night King, so maybe her greater purpose was over and done with, but to keep her alive, not knowing what to do with her character next is quite pointless. If she hasn't exited the show yet, maybe the queen she'd eventually kill is Dany, as Dany has green eyes too and is a threat to the Seven Kingdoms. But the sudden downfall of Arya's character arc was quite disappointing TBH. © HBO (4) The Bigger Purpose For The Battle Was Lost The entire reason Dany was going to fight for the throne was because she was passionate about it, not because she was angry at people in King's Landing, but towards the end, it just seemed like Dany was only causing so much havoc and destruction because she was avenging Missandei's death. The entire plot didn't bank on the build-up over so many years, but was an abrupt decision taken by the Mother of Dragons, and she acted on rage rather than patience and kindness. The same goes for Greyworm, who attacked the Lannister army after the bells were rung, in an absolute rage to avenge his lover's death. Seems like the battle was only this chaotic and destructive because both of them were pissed off about losing Missandei, which defeated the actual, bigger purpose- winning over the civilians of King's Landing with kindness and nothing more, while taking over the throne, simultaneously. © HBO (5) The Dany-Goes-Mad-Arc Was Poorly Handled It seems it was a long-term plan to have Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragon's lose her sh*t in the end. It was always foreshadowed in the show when references were made to her 'Mad' father and somewhere the writers tried to tell us she may meet the same fate. But even so, her character arc was beautifully built. She was constantly portrayed as a folk hero, the 'breaker of chains', the ender of slavery, the kindest ruler to exist, throughout the earlier seasons and it was a slow build up for sure. We only get to see Dany change characters towards the end of season 7. Nay, beginning of season 8 rather, when she finds out Jon is the true heir to the throne. © HBO The character transition was a little too abrupt and poorly handled and didn't give the audience enough time to digest the madness she was turning into. Yes, agreed that her want for the throne made her go absolutely bonkers, but she'd been wanting the throne for far too long. Why was she suddenly shown as absolutely crazy for it, towards the end? The progression could be handled a bit more tastefully. © HBO While I am pretty sure what happens next, because let's face it, the writers have made the plot fairly predictable with their lazy writing, I don't think there's enough time left for complete and absolute closure we've been waiting for since episode 1 of this season! Unless of course, if they surprise us with an episode 7! Well, I am sure that's not happening, so let's just digest this mighty episode and wait for the next one, next week.
  14. Before you make a face at “yet another Mother's Day article”, let us tell you that this piece will tell you why we need to celebrate our mothers every day because of all these selfless and amazing things they do for us every single day. Yet, most often than not, we take everything that she does for granted and let alone saying 'Thank You', we don't even acknowledge it. We've listed down such 10 priceless and utterly selfless things our mothers do for us all the time that we don't thank her for: 1. For Being Our Biggest Cheerleader © Sharma Productions No matter what sort of a 'low' we are going through, be it personal or professional, our mothers always come through as our biggest cheerleaders. They make us see the silver lining, lift our spirit and fill our very being with hope and positivity just with their words. 2. For Always Knowing When We Need Our Favourite Food One look at us and mothers know when it is time to whip up our favourite dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Be it squabbles at the playground, or struggles with homework and tests, our moms always know how to make our mood better. 3. For Magically Retrieving Our Misplaced Goods © Hope Productions We would like to challenge all of you reading this, if your mother was ever unable to find a lost pair of socks, your favourite t-shirt or your misplaced assignment. It can't be. She magically finds them all! 4. For Erasing Every Nightmare With Her Soothing Touch As kids, it was her we rushed to every time a nightmare threatened our peaceful slumber. As grown-ups, our mothers still shoo away our monsters for us with her soothing caresses and kind words. 5. For Always Lending Their Ears & Laps To Us In Time Of Need © Dharma Productions If there is one person in this whole wide world who would listen to all our crap and never judge us on whatever comes out of our mouth, it is our mother. She is the best listener and guide, and always lends her ears and lap when we most need to find some solace in this maddening world. 6. For Always Keeping Us Well-Fed & Sparkling Clean Can we argue with this one? We always seem under-nourished to our mothers, who seem to find immense joy in (over)feeding us to their heart's content. What's more, we owe all our sparkling and well-done laundry to her. 7. For Convincing Our Dad On Multiple Occasions © Rajkumar Hirani Films Well, we have all been there and didn't have enough hugs to make up for all the times she faced the heat of convincing our dads to get us something or allow us to be somewhere. She has done this so many times over the years, it seems like the most normal thing now. 8. For Staying Up Late Just To Check On Us No matter how many times we told them to go to bed, our moms wait on us when we are out working late or partying with our friends. She wouldn't retire to bed until she made sure her kid is back home safe and sound. 9. For Sticking Up For Us At All Times © Dharma Productions No matter the innumerable times we have had to live through the chappal-belan beatings from our mothers, they will turn into our most fierce protectors and advocates in times of need. 10. For Believing In Us & Our Dreams Whenever we stopped believing in ourselves or gave up on our dreams, our moms helped us rebuild that faith in ourselves and our dreams. We might stop believing, but they would never do that. For all this and much more, thank you, Ma.
  15. Being a parent, who brings about gender-neutrality when their child is growing up, is a very essential part of their upbringing. What is gender-neutrality when it comes to raising kids today? It's when parents raise their kids in an environment which does not force any preconceived gender norms upon them to adhere to. While you may think gender norms are subjective and some are more stereotyped than the others, the ardent belief that men should be raised a particular way, which distinguishes them for being men in the first place, is what's problematic in society. (c)Pintrest Today, there is a need for mothers and fathers to raise their children in a gender-neutral environment where discouraging them to pick up a few activities just because it doesn't fit a particular gender role should be overlooked and processed differently. It's problematic to feed men with the notion that it's not okay to be emotional or too sensitive or tell women their place is in the kitchen or as homemakers. It's a choice that both the parents have to give their children to make and follow, respectively. (c)Pintrest Most men today are raised by their mothers because it's a basic bond and any mother who's raising a child knows how to do it best. Mothers are leaning towards gender-neutral parenting and this Mother's Day, we gathered 5 men who spoke about gender-neutral things their mothers taught them, while they were growing up: (1) It's Absolutely Okay To Show Emotions! "I was always raised believing if you have a feeling or an emotion, it's absolutely okay to share it and show it. Hiding behind a garb of manliness and denying your own emotion can be quite toxic and dissatisfying. My mother, in fact, always encouraged me to emote when I was going through a tough time rather than walking out of a room because it was difficult to process a particular emotion. I am very thankful for that because I recognise emotions very easily, not just in me and I help people open up and process them. Especially for my son, who is 10." Akshay Luthra, 38, Marketing Consultant. (c)Pintrest (2) Stay-At-Home Dads Shouldn't Be Looked Down Upon "I am stay-at-home father, which means my wife got promoted last year and couldn't find the time to look after the kids round the clock. I have two children and their upbringing is very important to me. So, I work from home and take care of them, while my wife goes to the office. She and I both implement the fact that its absolutely normal to be a stay-at-home dad and it's not a gender-specific role, just for the mother to stay home and take care of the house and children'' - Rohit Nanda, 39, Freelance Writer (c)Pintrest (3) Cooking Doesn't Challenge Masculinity "My mother always loved cooking and she was of the opinion anyone can cook. She never saw it as an activity for just women, where they cook and serve at all times. In fact, my sister was never encouraged to enter the kitchen. If her interest lay there, she definitely would have. But I loved to cook since a child and my mother always encouraged it. Today I have my own restaurants and I still love to cook. It was because of my mother I changed my hobby, to my work now" - Pritiyush Kalra, 35, Chef (4) A Choice Is A Choice "I was always fascinated by wearing non-boyish clothes as a kid. I mean, I liked all these colourful dresses and my mom's make-up. I would just stare at her getting ready and always go for her make-up when she wasn't around. I remember the day she caught me, I thought I would -be in big trouble. But she asked me what I liked about make-up and I said I liked the colours. She then told me it was my choice as to what I liked wearing and how I liked dressing and she would never make that for me. I am very grateful to her for making it easy to identify and accept my choices and my sexuality, when society refused to" - Ankit Moghe, 28, Make-Up Artist. (5) It's About Knowing What're You're Good At "I have been fond of classical dance since I was a child. I used to watch it on television and always start dancing at home. My mother saw that time and again and enrolled me in Bharatanatyam classes. My father was very against this decision and said it's only something girls should do. But my mother stuck her ground and today I am a professional dancer, running my own school. It has also taught me that gender-neutral parenting is very important. It doesn't confuse who you are, it enhances your belief in equal opportunity between the two genders and this is what I will impart to my children as well." - Romith Iyer, 29, Danseur (c)Pintrest Gender-neutral kids are more creative as they're given an opportunity to explore their own wants and needs without facing a bias or a discouragement in their expression of choice. It is fairly important to reduce gender importance and norms that classify as a staunchly patriarchal society. In fact, it's time to do away with the basics of patriarchy and equalise and normalise the effect both genders have, in society. This Mother's Day, these 5 men wish to thank their mother for giving them the ultimate lesson in life- embracing who and what you really are!
  16. Whether you have a desk job or you're an athlete, a good night's sleep is important for all. Not getting enough or not getting quality sleep results in feeling drowsy at the office, low performance, irritability and more coffee. For an athlete who`s training hard, this translates to poor recovery between sessions, fatigue and higher chances of a crash and burn. In this article, I`m going to give you science-based pointers which can improve your sleep quality: 1. Use Blue Light Blockers: Ideally, you should be avoiding mobile and laptop screens a few hours before your bedtime because blue light from them mess up with melatonin production and thus interfering with your sleep. © Getty Images If still by any chance, you can`t avoid it, you should be using blue light filtering apps. Remember, these apps only reduce the blue light, not completely eliminate it. Latest smartphones are coming with pre-installed night mode features. In case you don`t have one, you can install “Twilight” app built for Android. iPhone generally has the same feature with the name “Nightshift”. This will ensure less strain on eyes before you want to hit the bed. 2. Massage: Remember when you were a kid/infant and would have a sound sleep after a soothing massage from your mother? Well, that`s because massage helps in relaxing your muscles resulting in better sleep. According to the research gathered by American Massage Therapy Association, massage improves the sleep of everyone ranging from infants, children, adults and individuals with various medical disorders. The best thing about a massage is that you can do it yourself as well. Areas that are easy to self-massage include – scalp, neck, foot, wrist, arms, legs and shoulders. 3. Meditate: Multiple studies support the claim of regular meditation that can help fight insomnia and help to fall asleep quick. Not only this, but meditation at night is also proven to increase melatonin levels. Melatonin is a hormone released at night which regulates sleep cycles. When your body does not get enough Melatonin, it's not getting the signal to sleep which makes you stay awake late at night. © Getty Images Synthetic melatonin supplements are also used by people suffering from insomnia or have trouble falling asleep at night. So, give meditation a try before you reach out to that bottle containing pills of melatonin. 15-30 minutes of meditation is all you need. Meditation also gives anti-ageing benefits, so you are killing two birds with one stone. 4.Warm /Hot Water Bath: It is proven that taking a hot/warm water shower right before bed relaxes muscles, reduces anxiety and reduces body stiffness which increases your chances of a good night's sleep. This drop in body temperature after a bath before bed also makes you sleepy. 5. Supplement Magnesium:- Magnesium is involved in more than 300 enzymatic reactions inside our body. It is needed for many processes inside the body yet most of us don`t get the basic daily requirements for magnesium. © Getty Images Magnesium has a calming effect on the body, making it useful for reducing blood pressure and building deep sleep patterns. Dosage is generally 300-500mg a day. In one of the multiple studies conducted to prove its impact on sleep, a group of older adults suffering from insomnia, which included difficulty in getting to sleep, early awakening or feeling unrefreshed upon waking, showed significant improvement after supplementing with magnesium. Not only this, but magnesium also helps in the absorption of Calcium and VitD3 and not getting enough causes muscle cramps and irritability.

  17. Phase 6 of General Elections 2019 is about to see the light of the day this Sunday on 12th May 2019 with 7 states going to polls. While all is well when it comes to putting our democratic rights to use by choosing to vote, we need to bear in mind some finer details before casting our votes this election season. © Getty Images Whether you are a first-time voter or happen to be an old goose, being aware of some aspects of electing our representatives is always a good idea. Right from the very basic, yet crucial requirement of knowing the candidates from your constituency to finding resonance with their respective ideologies and manifestos, it is important to keep in mind that we make an aware decision that would not only impact our society but the future of our country too. © Getty Images Here are the 5 things Indian youth need to keep in mind before casting their vote this election: 1. Employment The biggest deciding factor for every youngster who is heading out vote, should be this. As of 2018, 18.9 million Indians were unemployed in the country which is by far the highest over the last few decades. Make your decision on the basis of which party you believe is most invested in the matter and would walk the talk when it comes to providing jobs to millions of jobless Indians. © Getty Images 2. Freedom & Security Freedom to exist however we want, love whoever we want, eat whatever we want, wear whatever we want, study what we want, challenge the wrong when we see it, and much more. Look for Lok Sabha representatives who would ensure that we don't feel threatened for enjoying and employing our fundamental rights or live in fear because we know our rights. © Getty Images 3. Secularism Perhaps one of the biggest needs of the hour. Let's take into consideration the candidates who encourage pluralism and secularism in our society. Let's do away with extremities of any kind and people who propagate such ideologies within our society. India draws its strength from diversity and its willingness to welcome one and all to its golden soil. © Twitter 4. Education Education and a strong, fair opinionated disposition should be the right of every Indian citizen. Privatisation and the constant need to manipulate our education system is not to be tolerated under any circumstances.

Start-Up Economy Given the kind of boom the Indian start-up ecosystem has seen in recent times, and all the promising opportunities it holds for our country and its future, we as young adults should choose someone who is willing to work on the start-up scenario, improve it and help in the growth of a start-up economy which would allow thousands to build their dreams and see them succeed. An aware decision will be the best decision you make this election.
  18. 2018 saw one of the most memorable Hindu-Christian weddings of the year with Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' lavish 3-day wedding affair in Jodhpur. We saw the entire Jonas clan coming over from the US, which included the Jonas brothers' SOs. © Instagram Now, merely five months after younger brother, Nick Jonas tied the knot with Priyanka, Joe Jonas went ahead and sealed the deal with fiance Sophie Turner AKA Sansa Stark (of course, we had to bring in a 'GOT' reference even here), in a 'surprise wedding' in Las Vegas right after the Billboard Music Awards 2019 was concluded. © Instagram The 'surprise' bit isn't the only thing that's different about Joe and Sophie's wedding, but when we look at it, theirs was a wedding ceremony that screams Las Vegas and unpredictability to the T! View this post on Instagram Surprise!ð¨This is NOT a drill. #SophieTurner and #JoeJonas said "I do" last night at a chapel in Vegas! â¤Head to the #linkinbio to sneak a peek at how they pulled it off just hours after the #BBMAs. #theknot #regram @joejonas A post shared by The Knot (@theknot) on May 2, 2019 at 6:00am PDT However, while most of us expected the couple to have an elaborate wedding ceremony like Nickyanka, we were all in for a pleasant surprise. Not only was Joe and Sophie's wedding a complete opposite of Nick and Priyanka's extravagant ceremony, but the newlyweds also didn't follow any of the protocols most celebrities swear by when it comes to star weddings. View this post on Instagram Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner just had a surprise wedding in Vegas after the #BBMAs...and that's the tea. Link in bio for everything we know! (ð·: @diplo) A post shared by E! News (@enews) on May 1, 2019 at 10:26pm PDT Here are 4 prominent things that Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner did differently than Nick and Priyanka. 1.

Only Close Friends & Family Attended The Wedding © Twitter Nick and Priyanka's wedding celebrations saw the who's who from around the globe coming together to commemorate the union, right from the Ambanis to Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities. But Joe and Sophie only had close friends and family in attendance for their wedding. And yes, Priyanka was Sophie's Maid-of-Honour. 4.

What with designers Sabyasachi and Ralph Lauren creating Priyanka's wedding trousseaus! On the other hand, nothing about Joe and Sophie's wedding was run-of-the-mill. Reportedly, the newlyweds exchanged Ring Pops or candy rings during the ceremony and the priest who officiated their wedding, was an Elvis Persley impersonator! View this post on Instagram ð­ A post shared by Sophie Turner (@sophiet) on Mar 3, 2019 at 7:18pm PST It was great to see Joe and Sophie ditching the regular wedding extravaganza and getting hitched in an intimate ceremony, in the company of close friends and family - just the ones who matter the most. While it is being said that the wedding was unplanned, Sophie once told Harper's Bazaar UK that she didn't want a showy wedding. Sophie had said, "We're trying to keep it as low-key as possible, so it's more of an intimate thing." This doesn't seem like much of a surprise anymore, does it?
  19. As the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League moves to the latter half of the tournament, with Kings XI Punjab at the second to last spot in the league's points table, their captain Ravichandran Ashwin continues to make headlines for all the wrong reasons. Comically enough though, everything that the former Indian all-rounder has done in the 2019 season fits perfectly for him, if Ashwin wants to become a part of the pro-wrestling world, whilst becoming a successful in-ring performer. Created A Big Controversy Around Him 25th March 2019 was supposed to be a casual day for the IPL fans who were less than excited for a match between KXIP and Rajasthan Royals when Ashwin did the unthinkable and 'mankaded' Royals' batsman Jos Buttler after being unable to dismiss him by usual means. What made it worse was the fact that Ashwin publicly announced that he was unapologetic about the deed and that he did nothing wrong. Ravi Ashwin's Mankad garnered widespread condemnation from the cricket world. But there's another key side to the debate. MORE: https://t.co/OHfU7KCorD pic.twitter.com/U35w475JYS — Fox Cricket (@FoxCricket) March 26, 2019 Became The Perfect 'Heel' (Made The Audience Hate Him) In the pro-wrestling world, a 'heel' is a character that makes the audience hate himself just to get a negative reaction out of them. Ashwin's attitude and actions during the 12th season have not been too likable. Disrespecting the honour with which the gentleman's game is commonly played got him a lot of flak from the cricket-crazy fans, fellow cricketers and even commentators. While Harsha Bhogle and Shane Warne had a social media spat about his 'mankading', Buttler's teammate, James Anderson showed his protest by shredding Ashwin's picture online. EXCLUSIVE: @jimmy9 give us his unique take on @josbuttler's controversial run out last week... More rows should be settled like this. Full story on this week's #Tailenders https://t.co/YOQ4PMSwiu pic.twitter.com/hYCPpdSqJm — Greg James (@gregjames) March 31, 2019 Called Himself 'The Best' In The Business Much like some of the greatest wrestlers in the history of the WWE such as Chris Jericho, CM Punk and now even Shane McMahon, Ashwin called himself the best at what he does. “I would like to think that I am right up there and I have been for a long time now. It's my 11th season of the IPL, so I would like to think I have done a fairly good job. I have never shied away from competing with anyone. I am right on top of the pile,” Ashwin said as reported by the Times of India. Got Himself Trolled To Entertain The Fans Finally, the biggest goal of a pro-wrestler is to make the audience have the time of their lives, even if it comes at the cost of making yourself look like a fool. In a match between Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Capitals, Ashwin tried to 'mankad' Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan but 'Gabbar' was too smart for the Chennai-born and stayed inside the crease when Ashwin tried to dismiss. Later, to the delight of the audience, Dhawan even mocked him the next time he came for a run-up.

  20. They say money can't buy happiness, and there is no denying that it's true. But money can buy things which brings a strange pleasure to those who seek it. Be it for the happiness of our family, or personal satisfaction, we sometimes don't mind spending money on things that do not make sense but bring us pleasure. However, while most of us can only afford to spend our hard-earned money on senseless stuff only once in a while when the temptation becomes too difficult to ignore, the billionaires of this world do not have such obligations. Given the amount of money that sits in their bank accounts, they can choose to spend their millions and billions in the most unnecessary and senseless ways, without giving it a second thought. © Twitter A few hours ago, news broke that the world's richest man Jeff Bezos spent rupees 1.25 crore on bulletproof panels for his Seattle office. The inch-and-a-half thick fibreglass panels were chosen because they can reportedly withstand shots from military assault rifles. What's more, it is being said that Amazon spends over 11 crore rupees on Bezos' security annually. Now, we understand that the man needs protection, but that's a whole lot of money to spend on an individual's personal security. But this isn't all, we list down 5 other world billionaires who decided to go ahead and spend their money in even stranger ways. 1. Bill Gates © Twitter Bill Gates is a great admirer of Leonardo da Vinci and maybe that is the only explanation as to why he chose to spend over 30 million dollars on the old man's journal. Back in 1994, Microsoft founder Gates spent 30.8 million dollars to gain the ownership of the Codex Leicester. It is a 72-page manuscript compiled by da Vinci compiled in the early 16th century and features the master polymath's diagrams, writings, sketches and ideas for future inventions. 2. Mukesh Ambani © Twitter India's richest man and industrial magnate, Mukesh Ambani owns more money than we can count. With a net worth of 5,530 crore dollars, he sure built a house that speaks money. Mukesh Ambani spend 1 billion dollars to build the most expensive home in the world! A 27-storey skyscraper that stretches across 400,000-square-foot, it comes with a helipad and six-level underground parking. What's more, reportedly it also has a ballroom, a 50-seat theatre and nine elevators in the lobby alone, and requires around 600 staff to maintain the place. And all that for a family of six, that stays in the mansion at a given time. 3. Jocelyn Wildenstein's Plastic Surgeries © Twitter A well-known Swiss socialite, Wildenstein always waded in money. However, things only got bigger and crazier after she received 2.5 billion dollars as a divorce settlement. Wildenstein, who is now in her late 70s, had been spending millions, almost excessively and obsessively, on plastic surgery. According to a Mirror report, Wildenstein has spent over 27 crores on her decade-long surgeries. 4. Elon Musk © Twitter Tesla and SpaceX founder, Elon Musk is known for his eccentricity. For the man whose brain led to the inception of the Hyperloop tunnel, it only makes sense that he fancies “different” methods of personal transportation. Back in 2013, Musk acquired the Lotus Esprit submarine car of James Bond's glory, from 'The Spy Who Loved Me' and reportedly, he had to cough out almost 1 million dollars for the car which was found in a storage shed of a junk collector. 5. Hassanal Bolkiah © Twitter Known as the infamous Sultan of Brunei, Bolkiah probably got the most expensive haircut in the world. Reportedly, the Sultan flies in a barber from London and pays him around 19,000 US dollars for a single haircut. Not only that, but the Sultan also takes care of the barber's accommodation and other requirements. That's some kind of job to have, no?
  21. Before you start reading this article, please make sure you have watched season 8 episode 3 of 'Game of Thrones', for this one is full of spoilers, and surprises. Now that it's out of the way, we can get to the point. The Night King is dead. And who killed him? The one and only ninja assassin, slayer of entire houses, stabby little girl (not so little anymore after her 'interaction' with Gendry) Arya freakin' Stark. (c) Hotstar It came as a shock to everyone, but in hindsight, there was one scene that almost tried to tell us, point by point, that this is what is going to happen. The scene we are referring to is the much awaited reunion scene featuring Jon and Arya. Take a look at it here once more, before we delve deeper into discussion. Number 1: Arya sneaks up behind Jon Snow. Jon didn't so much as hear her come, to the point that that's how they start their conversation. He asks her: "How did you sneak up on me?". If that's not proof enough that Arya Stark perhaps is the biggest sneakmaster warrior there ever was, we don't know what is. (c) Hotstar Number 2: Arya doesn't answer the question. Instead, she asks: "How did you survive a knife through the heart?", to which Jon truthfully responds, "I didn't." We now know that Arya probably was just confirming whether it's possible to survive a knife through the heart. This is exactly what she did to the Night King, snuck up on him, and pushed her dagger through. (c) Hotstar Number 3: This is the exact location where she kills the Night King. The very same place. Has she been practicing? She did successfully manage to sneak up on Jon, who is, by the way, one of the best fighters in Westeros. The Night King is perhaps a better fighter, with all his magic, but he clearly couldn't escape Arya's crazy skills that she painstakingly obtained in Braavos while training under the Faceless Man. (c) Hotstar Guess they have been trying to tell us all along. Anyway, take a bow, Arya Stark!
  22. With $131 billion tinkering in his bank account, world's richest man Jeff Bezos can literally get his hands on everything money can buy. With that kind of money, not only does one enjoy immense luxury but also comes to hold positions of power and prestige. Jeff Bezos is proof that when you own half the world's cash in your bank account, not only can you live the best life by spending it on awesome things, but also back crazy inventions for the world to see. Here are 10 insanely awesome things owned by Jeff Bezos which prove that he is Richie Rich come to life. 1. A museum for a house. © Entrepreneur Bezos owns a house in Washington which was once a Textiles Museum. He spent 23 million dollars to make that property his own in 2016. Reportedly, post renovations, the house will have 11 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, 5 living rooms and 2 elevators. 2. A top-of-the-class private jet. © Private Jet Fan Owning a private jet becomes a necessity when you are Jeff Bezos, and surely the man is known for travelling on a Gulfstream G-650ER, which is one of the fastest private jets in the world. 3. A clock that will work till the end of time. © Business Insider Yeah, you read that right. Keeping up with time is of utmost importance when you have an empire to run. But who wants a regular timepiece when you can own a clock which will run for 10,000 years? Bezos invested $42 million in getting the clock made, which is under construction in Texas. 4. A 10,000 square feet apartment in New York. © Business Insider Bezos is the owner of 3 linked apartments spanning over 10,000 square feet, in New York's upscale Central Park West area which cost him $17 million. 5. A 141-year-old newspaper. © NY Times One of the leading newspapers in the US, The Washington Post was bought by Jeff Bezos back in 2013.The acquisition cost him $230 million and the 141-year-old newspaper became his. 6. A commercial rocket factory. © Spacenews Touted to be Bezos' most dear passion project (after Amazon of course), his aerospace company Blue Origin is invested in making rockets for commercial use. Bezos funded the company to make space travel affordable for 'regular' customers. 7. A robo-dog. © Twitter Bezos showed off a 'robot dog' in 2018 with a tweet. Named Spot Mini, the robo-dog has been reportedly created by Boston Dynamics. It is believed that Bezos owns the dog since he called it “my dog” on Twitter. 8. A house in Hollywood. © Variety Known to be one of the most famous neighbourhoods in Hollywood, Bezos owns a Spanish style mansion in Beverly Hills in California. A Business Insider report claimed that the 7 bedroom, 7 bathroom mansion has “a greenhouse, a sunken and lighted tennis court, a huge swimming pool, four fountains, and a six-car garage.” 9. A lake house in Seattle, with Bill Gates as his neighbour. © AOL Bought by Bezos in 1998, it reportedly cost him $10 million dollars. It's a 5.3-acre estate that houses two residences - a 20,600-square-foot, five-bedroom, four-bathroom space and an 8,300-square-foot, five bedroom, four-bathroom home. 10. An expansive Amazon campus in Seattle. © USA Today Bezos' Amazon Seattle campus spreads over four downtown blocks and cost him $4 billion. Reportedly, one of the structures called The Spheres has a tropical forest replicated within it.
  23. The third episode in the final season of 'Game Of Thrones' is coming in less than 48 hours and while we gear up for the insane Battle of Winterfell to begin, let's just have a quick look at what all are we expecting to witness: 1. A lot of deaths, obviously. The mental preparation to see some of our favourites going down will be tough but catharsis is a rule for all major plot lines, and hence on the radar for this week are the Brienne of Tarth, Ser Jorah, Greyworm, Gendry and well, Theon. © HBO 2. A tiny scene from the promo showed us Jon Snow shouting the "Night King is coming" followed by a hysterical Arya Stark running from the crypts. Now, you sure as hell are aware of the theory that the crypts might not be the safest place since the dead Starks are kind of buried there. So prepare for some spook maybe? 3. Now, the teaser showed nothing about where the mighty Night King maybe, so this episode will (hopefully) answer that if not lay out his evil plans for us. There's a very interesting theory that this battle is a façade and probably the King is flying down South to madam Cersei to conquer hell himself. That will be crazy, if true. 4. The moment when Khaleesi says "the dead are here" could either mean the creepy crypt theory coming to life (pun intended) or the White Walkers breaking down the walls of Winterfell. 5. This episode may or may not show us how exactly Bran will use himself as bait to lure out the Night King. The boy is loved and hated in equal measures for his love of sarcasm and dropping one-liners but him mostly just keeping secrets to himself! © HBO This Monday morning, prepare for no blues but only gory red and also for your mind to be blown away.
  24. The popular 'Men In Black' series began in the year 2007, where Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones took the franchise by storm playing MIB agents. The two worked under an outfit that fought against aliens who trespassed Earth and protected it from their vile attacks. Besides that, the agents, who're human were tasked to monitor aliens residing on earth. The last franchise was released in 2012 which also starred Josh Brolin the younger version of agent 'K'. Honestly, I absolutely loved the trilogy, especially with K aka Tommy Lee Jones' stoic expressions and dry sense of humour and agent J aka Will Smith's playful antics and, of course, both of them kicking alien asses, all the way back to the moon. © Sony Pictures Releaing Now, we have 'Men In Black- International' the fourth part of the series releasing this year on June 14th and we can't keep it together, because the trailer looks really badass, with some new elements drawn in. The sad part though is that we don't have the regular partners in crime this time, and that's the kinda camaraderie we're really going to miss. But fret not, 'MIB International' promises another alien invasion and two agents looking so kick some alien ass! Check out the trailer here: Here are 5 awesome takeaways from 'Men In Black International': 1. The New Agents Look Swell As Hell Unfortunately, 'MIB International' won't have Will Smith's songs that sample Patrice Rushen songs. In fact, Will and Tommy have stepped back from the franchise and we have Chris Hemsworth & Tessa Thomspon as the new London-based agents. They'll be playing agent H and agent M respectively. The two of them are coming together again after 'Thor: Ragnarok' and ironically this time, they're fighting some wicked aliens together. © Sony Pictures Releasing 2. 'MIB International' Has An Absolutely New Spin-Off The film is actually being compared to 'Jurassic World', where after three parts of the franchise, a bigger spin-off was adapted, with stunning CGI and a bigger plot line. 'MIB International' is doing something similar. They're introducing new aliens, weapons, and characters while acknowledging the previous films and the characters in the series. © Sony Pictures Releasing 3. The Plot Seems Unique According to Sony's description, the plot is larger than life, definitely bigger and better than any of the other MIB movies earlier. How? Well, the new recruits tackle their biggest, most global threat to date ever- a mole in the Men In Black organisation. Now that is something to really look forward to! © Sony Pictures Releasing 4. More Extraterritorial MIB Agents! The earlier MIB movies always had a dozen alien species that the MIB used to regularly keep a check on. A few of them were MIB agents themselves. The new movie seems to have a lot more extraterritorial MIB agents according to the trailer. Maybe one of them is a mole, trying to propagate reign of its particular species on earth? © Sony Pictures Releasing 5. MIB 'International' This one's called MIB 'International' for a reason. While the previous movies were pretty much local, where we'd see agent 'K' and agent 'J' tackling aliens found in the United State, this one's based more on a global scale. Of course, there are aliens all over the world and the U.S. doesn't have to save the world all the bloody time! The MIB organisation in the movie is based out of London and they will show MIB bases in other countries. More alien species are likely to be seen, different from what you've seen when the movie was based out of the U.S. © Sony Pictures Releasing Apart from all this, the movie has a stellar cast and crew. It's directed by Felix Gary Gray and written by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. We've already told you who's in the lead fighting the damn aliens but we also have Liam Neeson as the head of London MIB base and Rebecca Furguson, whose role is still a mystery, which means it's something important. Emma Thompson will be reprising her role as agent 'O' from MIB 3, which could also mean, MIB International has some connection with MIB 3. Well, there's only one way to find out, isn't there? Book your seats for June 14th, 2019!
  25. Break-ups are tough to deal with. Especially if you've been heavily invested in making something work and it blows up right in your face. Yes, that's difficult to crack, but we all go through a similar pattern of pining for the loved one, missing them, stalking them and eventually letting go of them. But if you truly want to let go of them so you can function better, you have to change that pattern and make your indulgences absolutely minimal post a break-up. Because if you don't, their memory will keep coming up like a really bad itch. © MensXP Location : Andaz Hotel (@andazdelhi) Photographer : Anand Gogoi ( @anand.gogoi) Stylist : Devanshi Tuli (@devanshi.15) Makeup and Hair : Shrishti Anand ( @srishtianandmakeup ) Production : Prapti Elizabeth (@prapti.elizabeth) I am not going to give you a post break up jargon on how to deal with your heartbreak. That is something you have to figure on your own. I am just going to tell you, very practically, what you shouldn't really do, which you tend to do on instinct when you break up. Here are a few break up trends you should avoid to get over your ex and also for you to transition smoothly to the other side: (1) The Blocking Ritual Yes, it's oddly satisfying to block someone out for good and you and should if the relationship you had reminds you of the bad times. But if you look at it practically, blocking leads to more hate and anger than just letting things be the way they are. When you block someone out, you do it because impulsively you're really angry at the person and you don't think twice about it. As time passes by, because you did something out of sheer anger, guilt starts to surpass you making you want to check in on them from time to time. Blocking is a redundant activity which can inevitably hurt you and the other person and it's really not required. If you really want to make a point, let things be the way they are and distance yourself significantly, without out-rightly showing any passive-aggressive rage or malice and that practice will make you forget things easily. © MensXP Location : Andaz Hotel (@andazdelhi) Photographer : Anand Gogoi ( @anand.gogoi) Stylist : Devanshi Tuli (@devanshi.15) Makeup and Hair : Shrishti Anand ( @srishtianandmakeup ) Production : Prapti Elizabeth (@prapti.elizabeth) (2) Turning On Your 'Last Seen' I only mention this here because I knew someone who switched on his 'Last Seen' on Whatsapp right after he broke up with his girlfriend and that didn't do too well for him. Since her last seen was always on, he started noticing her timings on Whatsapp and hurting himself further in the process. In a way that is mid-level stalking but that's nothing to be ashamed of. We've all done it. And yes, it hurts when you see the last time they were online was at 3 am. So, in order to avoid that ordeal, it's best to switch your last seen off. Especially if it was on before. © Pinterest (3) Don't Keep Memories In Your Folder If you hang on to pictures and videos of the two of you together, that'll do you no good. Yes, we live in a digital age and everything is easily accessible but does that mean it can't be deleted? I am not saying delete everything on an impulse and pretend like everything is okay. I am saying, take your time to soak in whatever happened, maybe save a few good memories of the two of you together and delete the rest. That's one of the best ways to move on from a bad break up. © Pinterest (4) Don't Go On A Digital Obsession Mode Like I told you before, this is the digital age in every sense of it so everything is always malleable. It's obvious that you will stalk your ex from time to time to see what they're up to. You'll do it rather aggressively and frequently at first because it's tough to completely cut off at first. That's fine, just don't make it a habit. it'll only make things worse for you. If you really want to stalk, maybe check out some Instagram pages that are open to the public and spend time there instead of obsessing over the one it can't work out with. Let me remind you there are plenty of fish in the sea, even on Instagram! So, do the right thing for your own wellbeing. © Pinterest Once you follow these ways of letting go, you'll evolve in a very progressive way. Who knows you and her can be friends or more in the future? But for now, you need to do what's right.
