  1. The IPL fever is on, and there is a lot of excitement in the air. From incessantly praying for your home team to buying exclusive IPL gears, that's the mood overall. But at work, it's a different situation. For me, I cannot even concentrate when the match is on, especially if it's my team that's playing. And I am sure you go through the same thing,when you're at work post 8.00 pm and all you can think of is IPL. So here are the 5 things that happen at office every year when the IPL is on. I bet you'll relate to this. 1. Constantly thinking of an excuse to leave early What do you do when it is a long, long day at work, and the match starts at 8.00 pm. How do you get out? Well, I suggest bring out the big guns - headaches, viral fever, flu, everything. Having said that, I sincerely hope my boss isn't reading this right now. 2. Taking innumerable washroom breaks to check the score on UC Browser IPL's on, your home team is playing, and you are still at work. One thing every cricket fan does at work is take millions of loo breaks just to check the live scores on UC Browser. One of the best things about UC Browser is that its in-app tool of cricket content aggregation offers all-in-one live cricket content, including live scores, news, videos, photos, live commentaries and more. Additionally, this time around UC Browser is going big with IPL 2019. They have launched the UC Miss Cricket Contest for the course of IPL. It's India's first ever cricket-themed online pagent. In fact, last year the contest received a tremendous response, including participation from Bollywood actress Urvashi Rautela, Miss India Priyadarshini Chatterjee and TV actress Shirin Sewani. The contest is underway till May 1, and we hear the winner will win a huge prize, and will also be featured on a billboard at New York Times Square. Now that's big, ain't it? 3. Putting your money on your favourite team This happens everytime IPL is on. It's almost like an unofficial tradition at work. I am going big on Mumbai Indians, whom are you supporting? 4. Checking the WiFi 24x7 Here's a truth. You are never going to check the WiFi speed if it's a usual day at work. But when the IPL is on, WiFi is your top-most priority. I mean, how else will you livestream the match and check the scores all the time? 5. Getting into a heated conversation During IPL, a KKR fan will always get into a heated conversation with a Mumbai Indian fan. Or, a CSK follower will never miss an opportunity to pick on a RCB fan. When we talk about the IPL fever, this is exactly what we mean. Do you relate to this? If yes, let us know which team you are supporting this time.
  2. Due to the popularization of the fitness industry, thousands of fitness coaches are available right now and their demand is on the peak. Right from the 'not to be taken seriously' ones who teach you hacks to lose face fat and belly fat in 7 days to those who speak actual facts and back their practice with the latest evidence, you will find every type of trainer out there. © Unsplash The problem is that a lot of people fall easily for the quick hacks and sorcery-promising ones and do not really pay attention to the latter. That is unless they screw their happiness and waste their money on the quick fix ones and then go to the evidence-based practitioners. If you are looking to work with a professional for your fitness goals, here are a few qualities they should have: 1. Professionalism © Unsplash Like I mentioned, if you are looking to work with a professional, that is what they have to be. A professional. That means they should clearly communicate with the client what can be expected in the coaching, their timelines, what do they expect from the client, their coaching style, their communication channels and turnaround times. Along with that, what results the client can expect from the program and what are the things they would be required to do. 2. Ethical A coach who is trying to sell you a particular supplement or a fishy product under their sponsorship agenda or asks you to take certain drugs saying that you absolutely need it to get good results, are NOT the best lot to help you out. A coach should only 'suggest' supplements as it is not their role to make recommendations or ask you to buy things. They should suggest stating the benefits only and keep the decision-making power totally in your hands. Drugs, should not even come up in a conversation with your trainer. 3. Should Walk The Talk If your coach is obese, does not train regularly, does not eat well, seems like they themselves need a coach and are not the best person to be a coach to someone. By walk the talk, it does not mean they should be ripped and flash abs year round but should be what is considered fit and have a supporting lifestyle. If they don't, you will never be inspired to go an extra mile forward for them to get better or take them seriously in the first place. 4. Creates Plans Individualized For You © Unsplash If someone takes your money under the premise of coaching and ends up sending you some template files or cookie cutter programs, they are selling you templates and not coaching. Coaching, on the other hand, means that the coach in question takes information from you regarding your goals, your lifestyle, your current nutrition, training, sleep habits and then creates a plan suited for your lifestyle and goals. It is YOUR plan. Not the one that is a one-size-fits-all plan. 5. Transparency & Education A coach should not just tell you what to do and ask you to follow him blindly. A coach should be able to give you a satisfactory explanation as to 'why' a particular thing or a plan has been set for you and how it would benefit you. Along with that, the coach should equip you with the necessary information and education so that you can be independent after a few months to take charge of your own fitness. © Unsplash Yes, there still might be situations where you would still be with them. Be it a contest prep or a powerlifting meet or a sports event. But those are special instances or situations where someone keeping an eye on your progress and planning does help. But, if just staying in shape means you being with a coach and taking his coaching for a lifetime, that coach is making you a handicap and not helping you out in reality.

  3. General Elections in India can be very entertaining, if you happen to chance upon the right people saying the most absurd things that are nothing short of blasphemous. No matter what our politicians might be good at (such as shirking responsibilities), there are a few things nobody can challenge them on. © Twitter Some of our politicians have such a way with words, that most often their brains simply cannot keep up with all the jackshit spewing out of their mouths like diarrhoea. The end result is a bucketful of gunk and brain droppings that deserve no better place than in the back alley gutters. © Pinterest While some leading politicos have already been banned from campaigning for a limited time period by the Election Commission of India, due to their remarks, others have also drawn heavy flak from the public as well as rival parties. Check out these profane statements made by 10 politicians since the 2019 General Elections began. 1. Maneka Gandhi (BJP) © Twitter 2. Azam Khan (SP) © Twitter 3. Yogi Adityanath (BJP) © Twitter 4. Mayawati (BSP) © Twitter 5. Sakshi Maharaj (BJP) © Twitter 6. Ashwini Kumar Choubey (BJP) © Twitter 7. Guddu Pandit (BSP) © Twitter 8. K Chandrasekhar Rao (TRS) © Twitter 9. Mehbooba Mufti (PDP) © Twitter 10. Gajendra Shekhawat (BJP) © Twitter
  4. Election Commission (EC) is badass this year. They're banning people left, right and centre for good reason. Certain politicians have (ahem) a history of saying offensive and hurtful things. Remember the guy who blamed horniness of young men on street noodles? While saying whatever they like is usually admissible but during the election campaign, there are certain rules mandated by the EC that need to be followed. These rules have been undermined for years. However, this year in light of extensive campaigns and more access, courtesy social media, Election Commission has been proactive and we really appreciate them for it. Here is a list of ridiculous things that politicians said that got them banned for a short period, but that is also something. 1. Called the Muslim League a “green virus” that “caused the partition of the country” Yogi Adityanath, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader who is currently the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, made this comment among others in a speech that referred to the Muslim League a virus that “spread across the country to the extent that it caused the partition of the country". Adding fuel to the fire, he also said that the opposition party, Congress is “infected with the virus” and that “the Congress government used to serve biryani to terrorists and Modiji's army sends bullets and bombs their way,” which basically suggests calling around 14% of the Indian population a “green virus”. The EC had issued a 72-hour campaigning ban on him. 2. Commented on the opponent's underwear colour Senior Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Azam Khan is contesting in Rampur against his BJP opponent Jaya Prada, a former member of his own party, in a speech said, “I brought her to Rampur. You are a witness that I did not allow anyone to touch her body. It took you 17 years to identify her real face but I got to know in 17 days that she wears khaki underwear.” BJP Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj compared it to the mythological character Draupadi being disrobed in the Hindu epic Mahabharata. But, more importantly, this comment triggered a response from the National Commission for Women, whose chairperson Rekha Sharma is requested the EC to bar him from contesting the election entirely. He too was issued a 72-hour ban for making comments considered “sexist and derogatory”. 3. Threatened Muslims to vote in her favour Sultanpur candidate and Union Minister Maneka Gandhi said she would win regardless. However, if Muslims didn't help her, she “will not feel good, because then there is a bitter feeling.” She also said, “If Muslims come for some work after that I will think, "why bother". She also said the most ironical statement considering her name is Gandhi, “We are not Mahatma Gandhi's children to keep giving without getting anything in return”. EC banned her from polling for 48 hours. It had issued a similar ban before to Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati after she asked Muslims to vote for her party instead of Congress to help them defeat the BJP. These are only a few of the things that have come to the limelight. What other ridiculous things have you heard during the election campaign?
  5. Vote. It is one of the simplest words in the English dictionary, but those four English letters clubbed together hold a world of power. One that is capable of deciding the fate of our country and its inhabitants, for the next five years. If you are of age, that is 18-years-old or more, and eligible to vote, we cannot stress enough on the importance of your participation in the 2019 General Elections. Every individual with a voter card and a name on the electoral roll is shouldering a crucial responsibility at the moment. © Getty Images However, voting only matters if it led by solid awareness and considerations of various permutations and combinations that will benefit the country and its people as a whole. So, be aware of the candidates in consideration, the parties they represent and the ideologies the said parties uphold. Besides all that, here are 10 things to keep in mind before casting your vote for Lok Sabha elections 2019 that began today. © Getty Images 1. You will only be allowed to cast your vote with proper photo/voter identification authorised by the government. 2. Polling officers are allowed both inside and outside the polling premises. 3. The Election Commission of India also appoints observers for every polling station. They must always be around. © Twitter 4. Only the Election Commission of India-appointed media is allowed at the polling venue. 5. Only physically impaired voters who cannot cast their vote independently are allowed to have a help/company inside the booth. 6. Only the Election Commission of India-authorised public service personnel should be on duty. © Reuters 7. Police officers cannot be present inside the polling booth unless there is a law and order situation in the premises. 8. The Election Commission of India has mandated that 3-4 electors are not allowed inside a polling booth together. 9. Using a mobile phone is prohibited in the polling booth. The Election Commission of India has ordered that officials of duty need to keep their phones on silent mode and step outside the polling station to take/make calls. © Reuters 10. Voters are also prohibited from carrying arms or any form of liquid with them inside the polling booth. Every single vote cast is a voice speaking up, every vote cast will decide the state of being of Indian citizens, its economy and growth, defence and the possibility of peace and unity in the years that will follow the results of the election. So, regardless of where you are, and how cumbersome the journey to your polling booth might seem, it is extremely crucial for each one of us to head out, cast our vote and let our voices be heard. We hope each one of you eligible voters reading this will head out and cast your vote, and make a choice for a better tomorrow.
  6. There isn't a better person whose ears we would like to talk off with our nonsense on any given day. No other individual we would rather share a beer with, or haul-ass with when being chased by the traffic cops for not wearing helmets. And definitely, there isn't another one like them who would stick around regardless of all the messy brawls, broken promises and cancelled plans over the years. © Vinod Chopra Films That is how it is with best friends, you will mess up more often than you would want to admit, give each other a hard time over a number of things, yet stick up for each other whenever it comes to you two against the rest of the world. And if you ask us, that is the biggest charm about having a best friend. You can be your best with them, but you can also be your worst, and they would still stick around simply for the “sake of old times” (no, simply because it's you). © Excel Entertainment That is exactly what two friends roaming the streets of Mumbai on a bicycle said about friendship, in not so many words. And that was all the inspiration we needed to fill your feed with a sappy, but heartfelt story on why we let our best friend(s) sweet talk us into the most stupid stuff and get away with it, all the freaking time. For now, read what these two friends of 15 years told Humans of Bombay about their adventures. You see, that is just how we have felt on innumerable occasions - after getting our asses whooped for being stupid enough to give in to each other's crazy ideas, with nothing to help us out of the soup we landed ourselves in after. Yet, regardless of the greatest mess we whip up together, there seems to be no going back after a point of time. We always seem to find our way back to each other, with or without the differences and all-out fights that plague us every now and then. © T-Series A 2009 study has also shown that most friendships last about seven years, anything beyond them and you can be sure that your best friend is here to stay for the long haul. Yet, it doesn't make sense why we always get “sweet-talked” into stupid shit when it comes to them. Actually let us rephrase that, why do we let ourselves be sweet-talked into stupid shit when it comes to them, even when we know full well that “it isn't a good idea”? © T-Series Consider these 5 reasons: 1. They Really Are Our “Brother/Sister From Another Mother”. Now you can't screw that up even if you tried, can you? Actually, you can. Don't date their ex. Just don't. 2. They Get You. As sappy as that might sound, it's a fact none of us can deny. Our best friend gets us in a way nobody else does, and this fact makes them so darn special. 3. You Get To Let Your Weirdness Out, Unapologetically. Think of the craziest, funniest and most ludicrous thoughts or ideas you ever came up with. Who was that one person besides yourself who knows about it, and is still friends with you? Yeah. © Rajkumar Hirani Films 4. You Care, Respect And Look Out For One Another In Your Own Way. There exists this unsaid pact that best friends always maintain wherein even when we can constantly berating one another, we still maintain a sense of respect towards them and look out for each other in our own way. 5. But Most Of All Because… You want to do it just as much as them because it's your friend and anything and everything you do with them is fun!
  7. If waking up in the morning and finding pimples on your face is a recurrent eventuality in your life, and if you've tried all possible anti-acne products to get rid of your pimples, you need to focus on other reasons that are causing these pimples. Besides being disposed to sensitive skin, there are other unforeseen factors that could be causing your pimples. Some of these could be: 1. Your Tendency To Touch Your Face Might Make Your Breakouts Worse © Getty Images While it might be tempting, it's not a great idea to play with your face throughout the day. Chances are picking your pimples could make them red leaving a scar behind. Also, remember to never pop that pimple because extracting the pus out of your pore could run the risk of pushing the bacteria deeper and making the problem worse. Besides, all the times at work when you rest your hand on the chin while sitting at your desk can transfer bacteria from your hand onto your face. Use a pimple-patch to cover pimples if you have an uncontrollable urge to touch newly formed zits. 2. Stress Breeds Pimples © Getty Images These two might seem completely unrelated but stress triggers acne. Pressure-filled situations make your skin produces stress hormones, like cortisol, that stimulates oil glands to make testosterone which in return increases oil production and clogs your pores which translates to more breakouts. Working out regularly and taking time off your busy schedule are things will help you release stress and subsequently the cluster of pimples. 3. Your Smoking Habit Is Also Causing A Lot Of Pimples © Getty Images Lighting a cigarette decreases the oxygen supply to your skin. Smoking not only increases the chances of cancer but also causes the breakdown of collagen and elastin that leads to wrinkles and increased pore size. The carcinogens in the smoke also irritate your skin and dry it out, triggering it to produce more oil and, possibly, more breakouts. The obvious solution to getting fewer pimples is nixing smoking. Trust us, it's not helping you. 4. The Food That You Eat Can Cause Acne © Getty Images Tomatoes and peppers are two common ingredients in spicy foods that contain acidic lycopene. This is an irritant that can trigger breakouts around the mouth. However, it's not just spicy food that can trouble your skin. Certain people have a strong reaction to dairy, gluten, or other types of foods. It really depends on what suits you and what doesn't. 5. Post-Workout Neglect Trigger Body Breakouts © Getty Images Skipping the shower right after working out allows the dirt, bacteria, oil, and sweat to seep into your pores and cause breakouts. If the commute from the gym to your place is long, get face wipes. It does damage control and makes us not showering immediately after. 6. The Ingredients In Your Skincare Might Be Causing Breakouts © Getty Images Read your labels. We know this is easier said than done but if you don't know what to look for, a good place to start would be sticking to products labelled “noncomedogenic,” which means it has been specifically formulated not to clog your pores. That said, if you've tried all the above and your breakouts continue to worsen, make an appointment with your dermatologist to see if you could be allergic to another ingredient in any of the products you use. 7. Your Face Scrub Might Be Causing Harm To Your Face © Getty Images Rough exfoliants like face scrubs, loofahs, or cleansing brushes are only going to worsen your breakouts. The idea here is to repair your skin's protective barrier to keep bacteria at bay. If your skin is sensitive and acne prone, stick to a mild face that gently washes your face.
  8. Giving up on people because they've let you down, whether it's your favourite athlete, a political figure, or your best friend, seems a bit polarised. Guess what happens when you stop working on your relationship? When you take your partner for granted, use him/her as a punching bag, and push them away instead of pulling them close? It nearly destroys your relationship just as your favourite athlete disappoints you in a game or your best friend betrays you. When you've been hurt, betrayed, or disappointed by someone you care about, it's hard to imagine giving that person another chance. But what if the person wants to return to you, should you give them a second chance and offer your trust again? Here are 5 sure shot ways that can help you ease your confusions and help make a decision: © UTV Motion Pictures 1) Forgiveness Is Foremost We have always heard to forgive and to give someone an opportunity to make up for past mistakes but not everyone is capable of doing so. We tend to think of forgiveness in interpersonal terms. Forgiveness seems to be a critical element but when the person apologizes, you accept it and don't hold a grudge or strike back. But you need to decide for yourself if you are able to forgive this particular person and welcome them back into your lives again, without holding any grudges. © UTV Motion Pictures 2) Inspect The Worth Of Revival People can change and can learn from their mistakes. They can turn everything around once again by becoming the person you were attracted to at the beginning of the relationship. You need to analyse if they deserve a second chance—and when you give them a second opportunity, allow them to show you their new side. You'd like people to treat you the same way, wouldn't you? © Zee Studios 3) Empathising Is The Key Turn the tables and imagine that it's you who needs the second chance. Wouldn't you feel better if you were given an opportunity to try again? Whether it's the car you've been hired to fix or the relationship that took a turn for the worse due to your own mistakes, it's nice to know that someone is willing to give you a chance to redeem yourself. © Yash Raj Films 4) Check Credibility The first thing to decide is whether you can rebuild your relationship and learn to trust your partner again. This is incredibly difficult! Take a deep breath, and think about it: can you convince yourself to trust them again. If so, then maybe you should give them a second chance. © UTV Motion Pictures 5) Converse With Each Other Now, once you evaluate things on your part, talk everything over. Focus primarily on what led to you two breaking up in the first place. Whose fault was it? Was it necessary? These are all the things you two need to talk through so that there won't be any unfinished business when you two reconcile. A second chance is something to hold on to. Once you get it, you can't think that it won't be slightly awkward at the start. Take your time with each other before and during the relationship. Gaining someone's trust and affection back is extremely hard. Restart the relationship on a hopeful note that this time around, things will be different.
  9. John Cena and Nikki Bella, after a crazy yet dreamy proposal, became one of the hottest and strongest couples in the world seven years ago. I don't know how else to put it, but they were couple goals through and through, complete with their own imperfections, fights and flaws. However, last year they shocked everyone with their breakup. Even after their breakup, John Cena was still deeply in love with her and even confessed the same on a chat show, where he said he wants the two to work and get married to her. Looks like John Cena has finally gotten over his feelings for Nikki and moved on to someone else. A few days ago, the 41-year-old was spotted arm-in-arm with a mystery woman and since then the internet can't keep calm. People tapped into their inner Sherlock and finally found out who the mystery woman is. Meet Shay Shariatzadeh, John Cena's rumoured girlfriend. We found every information available about her and compiled it for y'all, to save you guys time. © Reuters Shay is from Vancouver, and reportedly works as a product manager in the video surveillance industry, Avigilon. She completed her graduation in 2013 from Electrical and Electronics Engineering at the University of British Columbia. She even said on Avigilon's site that she has always enjoyed maths and physics and it was her brother who inspired her to become an engineer. From a WWE wrestler to an engineer, that is quite a jump for John. © Twitter Her LinkedIn profile reads, "I love technology and people! I excel at building rapport with customers, determining market needs and translating those into engineering requirements so we can build successful products that people love." Shay's biggest inspiration is her mother, "She is the reason I fight to be the best version of myself, to be kind and to never give up—because, despite all the hardship, she always smiled. She is my hero." © Twitter Shay has a green and white belt from Lean Six Sigma before becoming an engineer. Prior to that, she was a sales associate at a high-end fashion store, Guess. John and Shay were spotted enjoying a romantic dinner last week and were all smiles while walking hand in hand. We wonder what Nikki Bella has to say about this news.
  10. Getting a haircut at a neighbourhood salon is one of those things which Indian men are so accustomed to, that they still prefer it over fancy salons, sometimes in spite of being able to easily afford the latter. The reasons are aplenty, but the bottomline is, the local neighbourhood salon will always score one up against the fancy salon chains, so it's only sagacious on our part to make the most of it. Sometimes, however, things can go wrong, but it can be prevented easily by being a bit vigilant. © Thinkstock/Getty Images How, you ask? Here are 3 things you need to do as soon as you enter a local neighbourhood salon, in order to be able to avoid a bad haircut. 1. Make sure you don't enter it during a rush hour, in other words, avoid a crowded salon. You know how neighbourhood salons work - they earn purely because of their volume of work. They want to be able to attend all the customers, and as a result, the quality of work obviously suffers. No one is at fault here, because India just has that many people. An easy solution? Don't go to the salon during peak hours - for example, weekend afternoons and weekday mornings/evenings. As soon as you see a huge line of people waiting for their turn, please reschedule. This automatically will ensure a better haircut. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 2. Once you enter the salon and sit on your chair, tell Mr Barber to wait for a couple of minutes. Before he picks up his tools and starts the process, communicate to him what exactly you want from him. Be extremely didactic, and don't just assume he knows what to do with your hair. Yes, it's his job to get the haircut done, but it's not his job to read your mind and figure out what you want for your hair. Make sure he listens carefully and understands, before letting him start the process. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 3. Be assertive during the process, but not overbearing. Keep a close track of the process by looking into the mirror, and see whether it's going towards the direction you want it to. The moment you see some deviation, immediately but gently point it out. Often, we just let the barber take over, and start watching the hilariously dubbed Tamil/Telugu movie on the TV kept up on a shelf, losing track of the process. The result? Often things drastically go wrong - trivial things that could have easily been prevented, and because it's on your head/face, even the smallest mistake can make you look horrible for a few weeks. Being a little vigilant can help you ensure that you never end up with a bad haircut at a local neighbourhood salon.
  11. Salman Khan, or 'Bhai' as he is lovingly called in Bollwood, is not only known for his movies but for his extravagant habit of indulging in expensive assets. Here are 9 such assets owned by 'Bhai' which is making us fel very poor compared to him: 1. Gorai Beach home Mumbai beaches do not provide the Khan family with any exclusivity towards the beach so Salman 'bhai' has a legit gorgeous 5 BHK beach home which he bought on his 51st birthday. The insane property is spread across 100 acres and has a gym, a big swimming pool, a theatre, and the sea-facing bungalow also reportedly has a dirt bike arena for some more fun. As per reports, this cost him close to a Rs 100-crore hole in his pocket. © Instagram 2. Panvel Farmhouse This place is the resident party place for the family's parties for their friends. This place is spread lavishly over 150 acres of land and besides the usual gorgeous room, a gym, a swimming pool and all that jazz, this farm also house horses and other domesticated animals. Reportedly, this came with a price tag of some Rs 80 crore. 3. Triplex Flat In Bandra The Khan family currently resides in the famed 'Galaxy Apartments' but Salman Bhai invested in this 11-storey building which is currently under construction. Rumour has it that the family might shift into this Rs 30 crore abode here once it's done. 4. Private Yacht Obviously, all the jet set getaways to Alibaug and travelling to their beach homes require a wonderful private yacht by the Khan family. Reportedly, Salman and his bhais have a yacht which cost him a whopping Rs 3 crore. © Instagram 5. Fleet Of Cars Salman has a wonderful collection of cars, courtesy his travel in Mumbai and the entourage that travels with him. His garage is overflowing with cars like the Mercedes Benz GL Class (approx. Rs 80 lakh), Mercedes Benz S Class ( approx Rs 82 lakh), an Audi A8 L (approx. Rs 1.13 crore), the BMW X6 (around Rs 1.15 crore,) a Toyota Land Cruiser (approx Rs 1.29 crore), the Audi RS7 (approx Rs 1.4 crore) and a Range Rover (over Rs 2.06 crore), an Audi R8 (costing around Rs 2.31 crore) and also a Lexus LX470 (approx Rs 2.32 crore). PHEW! 6. Crazy Expensive Bikes Salman Bhai owns the gorgeous Hayabusa which cost him over Rs 16 lakh. Along with that, he owns the Yamaha R1 which is around Rs 15 lakh, the Suzuki GSX-R 1000Z which costs Rs 16 lakh and the Suzuki Intruder M1800 RZ which is around Rs 16 lakh. 7. Super Expensive Bicycle Bhai is often spotted on Mumbai streets bicycling his stress away. Now, one would wonder an expensive bicycle would cost around a lakh or so but his Giant Propel 2014 XTC is over Rs 4 lakh. Yepp, 'shauq badi cheez hai'! © Instagram 8.

  12. As a coach, I face a few questions a lot. "What are the golden rules for fat loss?" "How can we accelerate the fat loss process?" Though there aren't any 'rules' as such that you need to follow, you can follow a few simple guidelines which can help you to burn more fat and speed up your fat loss journey. via GIPHY Let's look at three such 'rules' that will help you in your fat loss: 1. Prioritize Resistance Training This is a mistake made by a majority of the people training for fat loss. They believe that cardio will help them more for fat loss and resistance training is only for people who are preparing for some kind of bodybuilding competition. This is not true. Resistance training will help you build muscle mass which in turn will help you to burn more calories even while you are outside the gym. Muscles are metabolically more active and thus your body burns more calories to build and maintain more muscle mass. So while you may burn more calories in a cardio session in the gym, it is resistance training that will help you speed up that sluggish metabolism and accelerate your fat loss journey. 2. Up Your Protein Intake via GIPHY Once you implement rule number one, you will have to compliment it with rule number two. When you do intense resistance training for at least 4-5 days in a week, your body will need an appropriate amount of protein to repair the broken muscle tissue. 1 gram per kg of body weight is a good place to start with and thereby you can increase it as per your individual requirements. Consuming enough protein in your daily diet also helps you to regulate your hunger which is a major issue while doing fat loss. You should always prefer foods in its natural form like chicken, milk, fish, tofu, eggs etc rather than taking it through supplements. This will increase your satiety factor too. 3. Moderate (Or Stop) Your Alcohol Consumption via GIPHY I won't say that a pint of beer will derail your fat loss journey altogether, but yes, frequent alcohol consumption will actually delay the results that you are looking for. Firstly, excessive alcohol consumption has a direct impact in slowing down your metabolism and secondly, there are possible chances that you won't stick to your diet once you start consuming alcohol. I've never seen anybody having just the drinks and not eating along anything else along with it. That anything else generally takes the form of food items that are high in calories. Since alcohol in itself is a high-calorie drink(cocktails and mixers) when it is combined with other high-calorie foods, it becomes a problem. Fat loss means that you need to follow a calorie deficit diet for a certain period of time. It becomes difficult to maintain that deficit when you have such high-calorie meals every now and then. Thus it is better to cut down or rather stay away from alcohol for some time.

  13. Thinking hat on, magnifying glasses in hand and my Sherlock style coat dangling from the back of the chair – I'm ready to play Sherlock on British actor Benedict Cumberbatch and go all Holmes on you. From 'Avengers' to 'Star Trek', this maverick actor has been a part of some exciting projects but there's a lot more to his story than just big name-dropping. Did you know that Benedict Cumberbatch was actually kidnapped? No, that's not the plot of his next movie. This actually happened. And did you know that he actually considered dropping his last name? Shocked? I hope so! There's a lot more to unravel about this talented man. So scroll through to tick off the pointers you already knew about your favourite Sherlock on-screen. 1. He wasn't immediately convinced to play Sherlock Holmes. He felt that the outcome could be a bit cheap and cheesy. It was only when he found out who was involved in the project that he thought otherwise of it. Sky News 2. He has a rare genetic mutation that causes his eyes to change colours. Born with both central heterochromia and sectoral heterochromia, each of his eyes has multiple colours that are a mix of blue, green and gold. 3. He considered acting to be an unreliable source of income and toyed with the idea of becoming a lawyer and putting his dramatics to use in the courtroom. 4. During a gap year, he spent his time teaching English at a Tibetan monastery in Darjeeling, India. 5. Benedict Cumberbatch was kidnapped in South Africa while filming the 2005 miniseries 'To The Ends of the Earth'. On a day off, he and his co-stars took off to take scuba diving lessons near Mozambique. On their way back, they stopped to fix their flat tyre when six men appeared out of nowhere and frisked them for drugs, money and weapons. Benedict was then tied up and dragged into the boot of the car but his quick thinking saved him. He argued that he has a heart and brain condition because of which he will die. The kidnappers had an argument and left him unharmed. Ecosia.org 6. During the filming of 'Star Trek: Into Darkness', his co-star Simon Pegg convinced him that he might have radiation poisoning from filming in a nuclear facility. 7. Benedict Cumberbatch believes that his surname sounds like “a fart in a bath”. He even began his career using his middle name Carlton instead of Cumberbatch until his agent convinced him otherwise. 8. Benedict Cumberbatch has been announced the brand ambassador of Morris Garages (MG) India that has just announced their plans to introduce its brand of vehicles in the Indian Market. MG Motor was one of the first cars that he owned. MG Motor India has commenced its manufacturing operations at its car manufacturing plant at Halol in Gujarat. The first of these modern MG cars - “HECTOR” will be made available to the Indian customers in the second quarter of this year. Benedict is excited to be a part of the launch of the new MG in India and so are the folks at the MG Motor. Benedict has a lot in common with Morris Garages. His social and philanthropic work, as well as his support for inclusivity beyond gender, is in sync with the core brand ideology of MG Motor. Benedict Cumberbatch follows a strong resonance among pop culture and youth and the association further underlines MG's unique British heritage and its focus on enabling the future with the core pillars of innovation, diversity and technology.
  14. Almost 80 per cent of the Indian population is vitamin D deficient. This comes as a surprise as we get ample sunlight almost throughout the year. However, with the kind of lifestyle that this generation is getting used to, they generally do not get enough sun exposure so that their body can make enough vitamin D by itself. Majority of the time, the day is spent inside an office, working in front of a computer desk; how can you expect your body to get enough sun exposure like this? Also, I don't need to mention the poor eating habits of the urban population of the country that has contributed to the obesity epidemic. Forget about getting enough vitamin D in the diet, the general population doesn't even consume enough protein and fibre on a daily basis. Now while you may think that your body is functioning normally even with low vitamin D levels, let me tell you that your body needs vitamin D for many vital processes. Prolonged low levels of Vitamin D in the body may lead to various chronic ailments as well as weaker joints and bones in the long run. Thus, follow the below-mentioned effective ways to get your daily dose of vitamin D and keep your body fit and healthy: 1. Get Enough Sunlight I believe that this is something that you would already know but I am sure you haven't made any efforts for it yet. We all know that exposure to sunlight helps our body to produce more vitamin D. But what you would not know is that vitamin D derived through sunlight circulates in the body for twice as long as compared to vitamin D from foods or supplements. Thus, this is the best medium to have your daily intake of vitamin D. Though there is no official statement on the amount of time that you need to spend in the sun to get enough vitamin D, around 10 to 15 minutes is the general norm. It is interesting to note that people with darker skin need to spend more time in the sun as compared to people who are fair. 2. Supplements Supplements for vitamin D is available in two forms, D2 and D3, however, it is D3 that is more effective in maintaining vitamin D levels. Daily dosage for vitamin D supplement depends upon your current levels of vitamin D. Thus it is always better to get your Vitamin D levels checked before beginning any kind of supplementation. Generally, 1000 to 4000 IU is safe and healthy supplementation for a healthy age group. Still, you should always consult your physician before beginning any kind of supplementation. 3. Eating Foods High In Vit D There are various food items in vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian food categories through which you can aim to increase your vitamin D intake. A few good non-vegetarian foods that are high in vitamin d are egg yolk, fatty fish and other kinds of seafood. On the other hand, mushrooms are the only completely plant-based source of vitamin D. 4. Fortified Food Items Vitamin fortified food items are becoming more common day by day. Initially, it was just milk which used to come fortified with Vitamin D, but now there are various other food items as well. Soy Milk, Almond Milk, fruit juices, cereals, yoghurt, tofu etc are an example of food items commonly available in fortified form.
  15. Manohar Parrikar, Goa's late CM, was laid to rest last evening with complete state honours, and in the presence of his family, party members and thousands of Goans, who had gathered to bid adieu to “Goa's son”. © Twitter From his colleagues, to the people of the state he worked for and even the opposition leaders, everybody has stepped forward to recall Parrikar's relentless efforts and goodwill not only for his state Goa, but also for the society and nation at large. On Monday, the ex-Defence Minister's friends reminisced about their humble mate Manohar, who always seemed like a born leader to them even when they were a bunch of young lads studying at IIT-Bombay between 1973-1980. Here are 4 impressive details that have been revealed by Manohar Parrikar's friends, which prove that India has lost a valuable and invested leader of our times. dedication word is very small for him #ManoharParikkar #RIPParrikar pic.twitter.com/J5eytpOJuq — Chowkidar Bhuwan Bhatt (@bhuwanbhat) March 17, 2019 1. While studying at IIT-Bombay, Parrikar was the mess secretary. And once when the mess workers went on strike and refused to serve the students, Parrikar churned out delicious food for everyone along with his friends. Parrikar's hostel mate from IIT-B recalls the incident thus, “He was on good terms with the mess workers as he always participated in the committee. After the strike was called, he spoke to the workers. When they refused to serve us, he convinced 40 of us to cook ourselves. That was the best meal we ever had.” The real AAM ADMI The CM on 2 wheeler!#ManoharParikkar #OmShanti pic.twitter.com/ID4E7aE4ha — Radhika Maheshwari (@Radhikasharda98) March 17, 2019 2. His friends from IIT-B remember him as a born leader and a humble individual who attended all alumni meets. 3. Another friend recalls how Parrikar left his position behind when he met his friends. Hostel mate and close friend Bakul Desai recalled how Parrikar would wait in the queue to have lunch during alumni meets, for which the alumni members were given coupons. He also asked his security personnel to stay away when he was in the company of his friends. Rare #ManoharParikkar pic.twitter.com/WBuB9bLNKa — à¤à¥à¤à¥à¤¦à¤¾à¤° à¤à¤à¤à¥à¤° à¤à¤à¥à¤°à¤µà¤¾à¤² (@aannkuur) March 18, 2019 4. Another IIT-B batchmate of Parrikar, Ganesh Natarajan, recalled Parrikar's humility even after he took charge as the Goa CM. "Have seen him take an auto rickshaw at Mumbai airport even after becoming Goa CM. He will be missed across all walks of life." There might be a ton more incidents about Manohar Parrikar, but these few personal incidents coming from his friends prove that not only was Parrikar a great politician and leader, who was invested in his work and duty, but also that he was a great human being whose heart was in the right place all along. He is the real aam aadmi of the masses.
  16. Apple has officially sent out invites for its first event of the year that is scheduled to take place on March 25th. There's been a lot of speculation as to what Apple may be launching, however, the tagline on the invite may give us some clues. The artwork has the tagline "It's show time" followed by a 1940s style countdown. So, here's what we think Apple may be launching based on previous rumours and speculations: 1. Streaming Service © Reuters According to a report by Bloomberg, Apple is expected to announce a new video streaming service that will rival Netflix and other services. The report says that Apple will have a library of at least 25 original shows that will cover various genres such as docuseries, dramas, comedy and family entertainment. 2. News Service Apple is also expected to launch a premium subscription plan for its “News” app. The app will let readers access content from different publishers including some of the top publication like Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, New York Times and others. There is no word whether this service will make its way to India, as the “News” app is currently not available to download via the Indian app store. 3. New iPads © Reuters Around the same time last year, Apple announced new iPads that were cheaper than the Pro model and had support for Apple Pencil. There's a good chance that Apple may announce new iPads to compliment the launch of its new streaming service. Previous leaks have suggested that Apple has already registered seven new iPad models with the Eurasian Economic Commission and some were even mentioned in the public beta code of iOS 12.2. A new 10-inch iPad is said to replace last year's 9.7-inch model and a new iPad mini. The iPad mini has not been updated in the last four years and seems like a good opportunity for Apple to introduce a smaller iPad for its news service platform. 4. AirPods 2 It's highly unlikely that Apple will launch new AirPods at the March event but there is a good chance that Apple will launch a wireless charging case. Leaks have suggested that the wireless charging case is expected to launch in the first half of 2019 while AirPods 2 is expected to launch alongside new iPhones later this year. 5. AirPower © Apple AirPower has been expected to launch for a while and Apple's charging mat has reportedly gone into mass production earlier this year. There's a good chance that Apple may launch the charging mat along with the new wireless charging case for the AirPods.
  17. Indian men have gone through layers of conditioning before they finally fell into a layer that made them the men they are today. As vague as that statement sounds, it holds true for an India post the #MeToo movement. Every man I meet nowadays is either talking about how to respect women better or be their 'knight in shining armour'. Truth be told, women don't really need a knight in shining armour as much as they need equality from their men. Be it their partners, they're subordinates, they're mentors, teachers, colleagues, or even their boss, women seek equality in terms of varying thought processes and of course actions. (c)Twitter While delving further into this, I came across research hosted by a popular dating app called OkCupid, talking about how men have evolved in the way they submit to their thoughts and actions in society and how perspectives have truly changed where they're concerned. The research throws light on a gentle evolution of how, post the #MeToo movement, men have a fair insight into a woman's perpetual struggle in society and helping them link ties and making things equal is something they're honouring more and more every day. Here are 3 things that have evolved for men post the #MeToo movement and we hope this Women's Day, all women realise they're not alone: (1) A Blunt Understanding Of Feminism There are, and there always will be a few men, who either don't care about feminism, are indifferent towards it, or who completely disagree with it. But there are also a lot of them who're changing their perspective on what feminism is essentially and have supported the cause as much as they're supporting the movement. Apart from subjective connotations for feminism, almost 87% of men believe feminism is 'equality between both the genders'. This perspective has helped enhance the solemn trajectory of how women are treated in certain spaces by the male population and it's certainly an improvement. (c)Twitter (2) Being House Husbands & Homemakers A lot of men, about 88% of them, according to research by the app, are offering to share equal responsibilities with the women, around the house. Be it cleaning or cooking or even taking care of the kids, men are more acceptable about changing roles and taking up something more or equally challenging. A lot of men have taken up to being 'house husbands' if their wives are in successful jobs, which demand long hours from them. This phenomenal acceptance in running the household along with the woman is a welcoming change for sure. (c)Eros International (3) Men Stand-Up For Work Place Harassment About 86% of the population is very much against workplace harassment. Since #MeToo had a big part to play in overall sexual harassment, men became more wary and sensitive about it, especially at places where they'd spend the maximum number of hours. A more vigilant and tolerant attitude was donned by most men around harassment in general and if they're the true watchdogs and a beacon of hope for maintaining peace and security, women shouldn't have much to worry about, especially at workplaces. (c)Pintrest These evolving attitude changes donned by most men is a defining strength for our democracy. With about 81% of the men coming forward in support of the #MeToo movement, we've seen the evolutionary balance become a lot steadier and men become a lot more understanding and tolerant. So, if you're a man and you're reading this article, maybe realise that your own brothers around you are wilfully looking for a change and change is happening, according to this research. So, maybe try and partake in this positive change and build a safe, happy and just society, together.
  18. Sujoy Ghosh is dishing out a brilliant revenge thriller called 'Badla', which releases tomorrow. Starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in lead roles, the solid drama movie has already impressed everyone in its trailer. If you're planning on catching this gripping flick, here are 5 things you can expect from 'Badla': 1. Big B & Taapsee's Strong Performances- There is no doubt that these two stellar actors will not stand up to our expectations in the movie. We have already witnessed their fantastic chemistry in the courtroom drama 'Pink'. They are essaying the same role of a lawyer-client in 'Badla' and we're assuming the performance is going to be seamless this time as well. © Red Chillies Entertainment 2. Gripping Storyline- Trust Sujoy Ghosh to not disappoint you with what you can expect from a well-crafted movie. The trailer is already gripping and has left us intrigued. 3. It Is A Balanced Adaptation Of A Spanish Movie- If you didn't know this, 'Badla' is actually an adaptation of the famous Spanish movie 'Contratiempo' (The Invisible Guest), so comparisons are natural. However, the makers have done a fine job in spinning their own tale borrowed from the original. 4. A Good Bollywood Murder Mystery- After a very long time, Bollywood has shifted focus from biopics and other genres to explore something which boggles and keeps the audience engaged till the end. There is a dearth of good murder, revenge thrillers in Bollywood and hopefully, this movie will bridge the gap. The movie releases tomorrow, so make sure your plans are set in place for the weekend!
  19. We're in the penultimate phase of what has proven to be a scintillating Premier League campaign. With the title race still being a three horse race, many would say the title is Liverpool's to lose. Leading City by seven points at one time, Liverpool's constant stalemate with the Likes of Manchester United and Everton have put City in the driving seat. With many Manchester United and Everton fans enjoying this bottling of the title race by Liverpool, it is hardly anything but that. With only a point behind the Citizens, nine games to go and Manchester City still to play the likes of Manchester United and Spurs, Liverpool are still within the touching distance of the trophy, which the Anfield faithful have craved for around 30-years now. What isn't helping the Scousers right now is Jurgen Klopp's recently adopted defence first mechanism. A side which has impressed so much and garnered amazing results when playing attacking football has certainly being asked to look back before running forward. We don't know what is going on in his head but his bizarre reasons behind Liverpool's failure to grind out results has really made us question his reading of the game. Jurgen Klopp being triggered by a ball boy is the highlight of the weekend ðpic.twitter.com/OjZ2PnwBl9 — Football Daily (@footballdaily) March 4, 2019 After claiming the conditions were 'too windy' for his team to execute game plan perfectly vs Everton, here are some odd excuses Klopp has generated to cover up from Liverpool's recent mediocre performance. · Wolves 2-1 Liverpool: “Too Windy” It was in the FA Cup tie versus Wolves when Klopp's I-don't-know-what-the-hell-happened side came out. As the West Midlands club got an unlikely victory Jurgen Klopp was all out blaming the wind. “The wind didn't help with that, to be honest, obviously everybody on the pitch struggled a bit with controlling the ball and the first touch was, very often, not that good,” he said. ð Sore throats ð± Dry pitches ð¨ Windy days Jurgen Klopp could moan about ANYTHING pic.twitter.com/zDcUTd8hs8 — Dream Team (@dreamteamfc) March 4, 2019 · Liverpool 2-3 West Brom: “TV Broadcasters Cut The Game Short” After referee Jon Moss gave four minutes of added time instead of ten at the end of first half, Klopp alleged broadcasters were behind the referee's decision. “What I heard was that the actual extra time in the first half should have been 10 minutes,” Klopp said. “It was only four minutes. I heard that television said it's not longer than four minutes. Of course, that's not possible, you can't cut match time because there is something else to broadcast. I don't know what was afterwards, maybe the news or something. It was 10 minutes and so you need to play 10 minutes longer. You cannot say it's now a little bit too long.” · West Brom 2-2 Liverpool: “Pitch Too Dry” After throwing away a two-goal lead at West Brom, it was Klopp vs 'dry pitch' this time. The German slammed the pitch and told the Baggies to enjoy their dry turf in the Championship. “It was a difficult game, especially after the pitch got drier and drier, we had the ball constantly and it's not so easy,” Klopp said. “West Brom obviously decided not to water the pitch at half-time again. It was quite difficult. I was not happy with the pitch. You never played football, obviously. It makes a massive difference. If you're like West Brom, the ball constantly in the air, you don't need a wet pitch. That's how it is and we have to deal with that. They can do it next year, playing with a dry pitch in the Championship.” OUCH! Wind, snow, dry pitch, opponents getting intentional injuries just to kill the tempo of games, etc. Not sure any coach has had this much obstacles in a title race in the Premier League before. And he still manages to keep a smiling face. We need to cut Klopp some slack. — too saucy (@kodeine_papi) March 4, 2019 · Manchester United 0-0 Liverpool: “United Had Injuries” In what could've been an ideal scenario for Liverpool to do a season double over United, the Manchester club used up all of its three substitutions because of injuries, Klopp came out with, "United were favourites before the game, then it all changed and all of a sudden we had something to lose, people start to think if we don't beat this team there is something wrong with us. We are all human beings. “It was a strange game. We started really well. All the injuries in the game obviously cost us rhythm” added Klopp. “Man United injuries cost us our rhyth.” Klopp is an unbearbale man. — Jakè (@Jake__Parks) February 25, 2019
  20. If you don't have the perfect Instagram skin like the Kardashians because, hello IRL dirt, sweat and 28347 other factors that lead to pimples, scars, blackheads, whiteheads, open pores and a million other problems, then you might want to read this. Apart from stuff that requires an actual effort like having a fixed beauty regime in place: buying products, not having it get shrouded by dust on a bookshelf but actually using them, home remedies that sound exciting but no one gets around to executing them, because life. You could also choose the simpler path of taking care of your skin by way eating yummy foods that boost the skin cells for healthier and glowing skin. But here's the good news, there are certain yummy foods out there that you can put inside your belly that builds your natural immunity against the bacterial infestations that lead to pimples and other gross pop-outs. The best part is that it also fights against the probability of getting skin cancer. First of all, know the thumb rule of sugar: foods high in sugar are especially highly detrimental for the health of your skin, however, some skin-friendly foods might also surprise you for example chocolate and red wine (when consumed in moderation, duh there was obviously going to be a catch!) So aside, from a beauty regime that you should have in place, here are foods you should have that catalyze the process of getting skin brighter than the sun: 1. Salmon © Getty Images The ray-finned fish, Salmon gets its pink colour from a carotenoid called astaxanthin, which by the way is regarded with the prestigious label of 'nature's most potent antioxidant'. Astaxanthin is, in fact, more potent than Vitamins C and E, and also helps encourage build up of collagen and minimizes damage like wrinkles and blisters from the harsh rays of the sun. 2. Green Tea © Getty Images The natural ingredient has polyphenols and catechins which improve skin's elasticity and help protect against sun damage. Green tea is also a powerful fighter against skin cancer. 3. Blueberries © Getty Images Blueberries get the blue colour from being rich in a powerful antioxidant called anthocyanins. They're also super rich in vitamins A, C, and E, and together they encourage skin tightness and firmness. 4. Kale © Getty Images Kale is regarded as a superfood, Because of its richness in the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin. A strong antioxidant, it helps minimize UV damage. It's is also rich in Vitamins A and C, all of these are good at boosting collagen. 5. Carrots © Getty Images Carrots are super rich in beta-carotene, and also can add a healthy radiance on the skin if consumed in the right amount. Too much, however, can result in an orange hue on your face. 6. Tomatoes © Getty Images The tomato paste from boiled tomatoes is rich in lycopene: the antioxidant that benefits prostate. Coming to the skin, it helps build immunity against sun protection. 7. Olive Oil © Getty Images Olive oil has good things like: monounsaturated fat (the good fat) and antioxidant polyphenols to protect against the smog, smoke, and the sun. So, replace the vegetable oil with something that'll be good for your skin. 8. Rosemary © Getty Images Rosemary is a great herb to use on your skin: rich in antioxidants, the herb when used frequently in your meals has been shown to decrease melanoma (skin-cancer) risk. 9. Red Wine © Getty Images This pointer might get you jumping with excitement. The red wine is rich in resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant with anti-cancer properties and pro-collagen effects on the skin which is always a plus. 10. Dark Chocolate © Getty Images Dark chocolate is known to be rich in cocoa flavanols, which has been proven to have helped with making the skin smooth. Make sure that you're picking a 70-per cent dark chocolate blend or higher. But consuming too much is a bad idea.
  21. Since we live in more tolerant times where relationships are concerned (or so I'd like to believe), a lot of people are choosing to make peace with their past. That's mostly because the world is shrinking and social media's unprecedented outpour of information really never lets you forget things. So, in order to keep your mind more sane and calm, it's only relevant to make peace with your past and by past, I mean your 'ex'. © Pintrest Most of you would want to loosen up the knotted ties between you and your ex and the reasons could be many. You could either want to shed away all the malice you hold for one another, or you still want them in your life because inherently they are good people or you still may have feelings for them, in which case, it's better to let go than figure out ways of having them in your life. But if the first two reasons are keeping your thoroughly confused then we have ways to make sure you have a healthy relationship with an ex. Here are 5 ways to keep in mind if you're looking at refreshing ties with an ex: (1) Are They In The Same Place As You? Yes, I know this is an obvious point to ponder over, but we seldom think what the other person wants in order to satiate what we want. So, the first step is to ensure your ex wants to be friends too. Because if she doesn't, then you really can't force free will can you? You can just wish them luck and hope they're happy. © Pintrest (2) Can You Trust Them Again? If you guys ended on bad terms then you have to think about how you want to go about this. If she did something to break your trust, can you accommodate trust in your equation, again? Of course, it wouldn't be in the same capacity as before, because you're not trying to get back together, you're trying to be in a good space as friends. So, if you trust your ex enough to not engage in any negativity or turn around and start a fight, then you should go ahead with it. © Twitter (3) Do Either Of You Have Feelings For Each Other? This one's a tricky one only because you may think you're over her, but you're really not and that can be a bit blurry while you're making a decision to keep in touch with her. Maybe sit down and give it a thought about your feelings for her. If you think they haven't changed since you started seeing her then maybe give it some time. © Pintrest (4) Do You Hold A Grudge? You can hold a grudge against your ex for a number of things, that is why she's your ex, to begin with! But if the grudge is minor and not too vicious then perhaps you can work on letting it go, if you think friendship with her is absolutely worth it. If it's a major grudge and cannot be reversed, then there isn't a point in looking out for any association, because you'll never be able to let the grudge really go. © Eros International (5) Have You Had Enough Time Apart? It's practically impossible to extend an arm of friendship when you've just broken up. Ideally, it takes about more than half the time you've spent with your ex, to maybe be friends with them, after you two break up. If you've never been friends before then it's a tad tough and only time apart can make that possible. So, take some time away from each other. If the break up is mutual and amicable, then definitely take time away and start a new association as friends. If it wasn't an amicable break-up, maybe take a lot more time away, get rid of the negativity you hold against them and try again. © Pintrest Break-ups are fairly hard but if two people are ready and willing for a resolution and want to take the dynamic from a negative to a positive by starting a brand new friendship, there are ways you can work things around and move away from the bad things that have happened and be good friends with your ex.
  22. The young lovers of this generation fear getting attached too quickly. And why shouldn't they? Love today moves faster than sound and diminishes quickly without much remorse or regard. We have dating apps at our disposal which make it easier to move on from something as daring as love and, because of this, every relationship is seen as frivolous and daunting. © AA Films The worst possible thing to happen to someone at this day and age is to get emotionally attached without many tools left at their disposal for detachment. Detachment is important with the frivolity we all live under today and if someone does break your heart, it takes a while to fix it back, making it harder to fall in love or trust love altogether. So before you set out to like someone and start getting attached to them, maybe keep these 3 very basic things in mind, so that you can protect your heart at the right time. (1) Are You Both Ready? By ready I don't mean for an association but are you both ready to emotionally invest in each other? If not, there are other ways to do this, like having a fling with one another but if you think you both are emotionally fit to have a deeper, more emotional dynamic than that, then go right ahead. If not, stay put because once you're in, it's difficult to get out unscathed. © Eros International (2) Are They Emotionally Available? While having feelings for someone and getting attached to them, you may experience the need to let go of your emotions little by little, trying to see if they can handle them. More times than often, they probably will put up a good show of being there emotionally for you but as time goes by, an emotionally unavailable person will begin to show their true colours. You have to recognise that before you're heavily invested. Because if you're associating with an emotionally unavailable woman, you're definitely in for a world of pain because she's not going to recognise or value your emotions after a point in time. So, it's better to make sure your partner's EQ (emotional intelligence) is at par with yours, before heading for a commitment. © AA Films (3) Are You Over Your Past? You don't want to get attached for the wrong reasons now, do you? Definitely don't look for someone else to fill a void because that doesn't work out well in most cases. First try and be complete and happy within yourself before you go looking for something more substantial with another person. If you're not happy and are looking to just fill a void, more often than not you'll end up getting hurt because you'll definitely not find what you're looking for. If you do get attached to another person while getting over your past, it's important to recognise that and try and work on it individually before seeking emotional help from another person. © Fox Star Studios Emotional attachment wavers on a thin line and if you think you're not an emotional being, so you don't have to worry about attachment, you're wrong. Everyone is emotional and everyone gets attached. You just need the right time, space and cue to figure out when and how to look for a healthy emotional attachment with the right person.
  23. Fashion is essentially subjective, of course, but there are some things that one should just stay a hundred miles away from - unless of course, they enjoy wallowing in bad taste. Men's fashion is becoming more and more inclusive every passing day, but that should never be the license for wearing 'the bad and the ugly'. In spite of all the subjectivity, trust us, there do exist some unforgivable fashion faux pas, that every man should steer clear of. Don't worry if it sounds too confusing, we're here to tell you what not to wear. We have listed out 6 things that men should never, ever wear. 1. Shiny shirts © FashionLeisure They were popular once upon a time, but we'll never understand why. No one can pull them off! Shiny shirts will make you look weird AF, even if you look like a Greek God. They look super cheap, extremely gaudy, and plain ugly. 2. Ill fitted, baggy jeans © Alibaba If you want to convert your Tinder right swipes to left swipes in real life, please go out on a date wearing these atrocities. Yes, comfortable and blah, but so are a pair of nice, crisp pair of linen trousers that fit you just right! Why would you want to look like a confused teen from the hood in a Gangsta movie who's had a trip or two to the juvie? 3. Socks with sandals © Getty Images We can't stress upon how harmful this one right here can be for your romantic/*** life. It, however, will work as a great contraceptive method because you will never be getting laid if you're seen in public wearing them. Go on, try it out. 4. Huge belt buckles © Democratic Underground You're not a cowboy (unless you actually are). But even if you are, why should you be a fashionably deprived one? Plus, it's not the '70s anymore and they should just be discarded. 5. Square toed shoes © ShoesLovetoknow Who can pull them off, honestly? Your feet would look 60 if you wear them. 6. Too much of jewellery © Saavn You aren't Bappi Lahiri, and you should save it only for him.

  25. While I agree that dating is hard in today's day and age, it's also necessary as a survival tool for the young generation today. That's because it's healthy and keeps the young people balanced and on their feet constantly. While dating has become the need of the hour, it's still circled as something only 'confident' men excel at. However, that's not entirely true. While you do need confidence to manoeuvre your dating game, you also need to be complete in order to look for another person. You can face nervousness while asking a girl out but what you need to remember is that the nervousness is just a solemn cover for making sure you don't ruin the game for yourself. In simpler words- it's okay to be nervous. © Twitter So, the next time you want to approach a girl and you think you lack the confidence to ask her out on a date, just remember these 3 simple things: (1) Let Her See You As The 'Nice Guy' Why don't we end the stereotype of 'nice guys finish last' once and for all? It's a give that women nowadays seek nice guys and not the usual chunk of 'bad boys' anymore. The sensitivity to be with someone who is kind and understanding is growing steadfastly and that's the side you need to show her. If you spot her at a bar or if she's someone you already know, it's time to show her your nice side. That doesn't mean put up a charade or show her a side where she ends up friend zoning you. It just means that you need to make her see you as someone she'd have difficulty finding, in today's and age. © Zee Studios Approach her with a conversation and find something of common interest to pick up on and start talking. Maybe have a deeper meaningful conversation and actually LISTEN to what she says. Not only will you come out as a good listener but also as a sensitive bloke. Just be the nice guy every woman wishes to find today. (2) Let Her See You As The Funny Guy Yes, agreed not everyone is funny but you can try appreciating good humour. I am not saying try your best to be humorous. Humour comes naturally, yes. But you can try and make her laugh the best to your ability. Humour always shows a very kind and soft side to someone. If you can muster up the courage to narrate a few jokes or make the conversation lighter with humour, you have her right then and there. If not, you can advocate some good humour and take her for some good comedy shows around town or a movie that's funny perhaps. Whatever you do, make sure you add the element of humour to it. © Pinterest (3) Let Her See You As The Chivalrous Guy They say chivalry is dead, but it shouldn't be. Chivalry is the mark of a man. If he's chivalrous, he's got it all. Chivalry includes everything- kindness, manners, etiquettes, compassion and being a gentleman. When we were growing up we often saw our fathers or men around show utmost chivalry. Be it opening doors or holding the chair back so a woman could sit. We don't see that anymore. Yes, women are capable of opening doors or paying the dinner bill but it's an aspect that gives women the additional strength and warmth they need, if and when a man is chivalrous. So, if you do go up to her, be your chivalrous best, to a point where if she sneezes, you hand her your handkerchief! Chivalry shouldn't die and if you gradually bring it back, you'll see the dating game change in your favour. © UTV motion picture So, if you have these three things sorted then you're good to go out and ask the girl you've been doting on, out. Just remember, pretence can only take you so far. So be your natural self and try and do your best. Your nervousness will fade away and you'll understand what women really want, clearly.
