  1. Indian Home Minister Amit Shah. Photo: India TodayWASHINGTON: The passage of the religiously discriminatory Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in India, widely seen as being aimed at marginalizing the 200-million strong Muslim minority in the country, has fanned concerns in the United States. The lower house of the Indian legislature early Tuesday passed the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, which will grant citizenship to religious minorities from neighbouring countries but not Muslims. The bill was voted on amid raucous scenes in parliament and protests in the northeast of the country.The bill provides that Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis, and Christians fleeing ‘persecution’ in Muslim-majority Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan may be granted Indian citizenship. There is no similar provision for Muslim refugees. The bill sailed through the lower house with 311 votes in favour and only 80 against. It still has to be voted on by the upper house of the Indian legislature before it can be enacted as law. Reacting to the controversial bill, the US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) released a statement saying that the US is ‘deeply troubled’ by the legislation. According to the USCIRF, the US will consider sanctions against senior members of the Indian political leadership if the bill is enacted as law. In its statement,the USCIRF noted that the bill specifically excluded Muslims, setting a legal criterion for citizenship based on religion. "The Citizenship (Amendment) Billis a dangerous turn in the wrong direction; it runs counter to India’s rich history of secular pluralism," the statement said.The commission also condemned the bill as a ‘violation’ of the Indian constitution, relating it to recent efforts to introduce the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam and nationwide. The NRC, like the citizenship bill, is widely believed to be the brain-child of the Indian Home Minister, Amit Shah. "USCIRF fears that the Indian government is creating a religious test for Indian citizenship that willstrip citizenship from millions of Muslims," the USCIRF warned. In a statement made separately early Tuesday, the US House Foreign Affairs Committee also condemned the passage of the contentious bill through the Indian lower house, saying that the so-called ‘religious test’ for citizenship undermined basic democratic tenets shared by the US and India.The ruling BJP in India had included the passage of the CAB as part of its manifesto released ahead of elections in May 2019.
  2. The entire Indian subcontinent was left aghast on 27th November when the brutal rape and murder of Priyanka Reddy came to light. The 27-year-old veterinary doctor was treated far worse than animals by a group of men in Hyderabad, who raped her, smothered her and finally burnt her body before ditching it under a bridge. The country was left trembling with shock, fear and anger at what had come to pass, and how incidents of rape and assault are slowly becoming the norm in our country. Amidst huge public uproar and media outcry since the fateful day, not only were the accused apprehended but the case was also being pushed for a quick verdict against the perpetrators. © Twitter-RupsaChak However, before the legal system could do the deed, all the four accused in the police custody were neutralised during a police 'encounter' during the early hours of 6th December in Hyderabad. According to the police, the accused were taken to the scene of the crime for a reconstruction of events, when the accused allegedly snatched the weapons from the police and attacked them in a bid to flee from the location. Following which, all four of them were shot down during the altercation. © Twitter Yogita Bhayana One man, the Cyberabad Police Commissioner V C Sajjanar has become the face of this 'encounter' that a majority of the people in the country are in support of. While the debate is on regarding how right or wrong the 'encounter' was, here are 5 things you need to know about IPS officer V C Sajjanar, who is being hailed as a hero by many: 1. Officer V C Sajjanar is a native of Karnataka and is a 1996 batch Indian Police Service cadet. He is a Commerce graduate, and also holds an MBA from the Karnataka University. © Twitter-CP-Hyderaba 2. While IPS officer V C Sajjanar began his career as an Assistant Superintendent of Police, he has held many distinguished titles within the police force, such as Superintendent of Police Warangal, IG of Special Intelligence Branch and currently he was serving as the Cyberabad Police Commissioner. 3. Officer Sajjanar has been involved in two other heavy-duty encounters in the past. In 2008, three men accused of throwing acid on two girls were shot dead by police during an encounter. Officer Sajjanar was the Superintendent of Police in Warangal at the time. © Twitter-CP-Hyderaba 4. Yet again as the IG of the anti-Naxalite unit of the Special Intelligence Branch in 2016, Officer Sajjanar was given credit for the arrest of many top Maoists and the encounter of senior Maoist leader Mohammed Nayeemuddin. 5. Known by his colleagues and juniors as a soft-spoken and mild-mannered man, the Priyanka Reddy encounter would be officer Sajjanar's third high-profile encounter case in service. He is known to work passionately towards the cause of women and child safety, cybercrime and human trafficking. View the full article

  4. As we step into the new decade and leave behind all sorts of baggage, there are some events, some things and some trends which truly defined this decade. Yahoo India did a 'decade in review' survey and pushed out a report which listed out everything that made it to the top in this decade. Here are the 10 biggest Bollywood blockbusters of the decade which played big for the box office and the fans: 1. Dangal The 'dhaakad' girls Fatima Sana Sheikh and Sanya Malhotra, along with the brilliance of Aamir Khan made sure that this 2016 blockbuster went down in history for being one of the most successful movies, not just in India but also across the globe. This movie, based on the lives of the Phogat sisters and their journey to the Commonwealth games, is a must-watch and sits on top on this list. 2. Bajrangi Bhaijaan Salman bhai just has to be on this list, given the kind of insane fan following he enjoys. This larger-than-life movie follows the story of Pavan who finds a little Pakistani girl lost in Haryana and decides to help her go back home. 3. PK This Indian satirical comedy follows an alien played by Aamir Khan, who raises many thought-provoking questions which will leave you rambling for answers in life. Rajkumar Hirani is a brilliant storyteller, so this one just had to be on the list. 4. Sultan Yeah, this is a list dominated by Salman Khan and Aamir Khan. But the stats explain why and how their movies cater to the masses, hence the reason they appear so many times on this list. This movie shows Salman as a wrestler who initially gives up but then restarts his journey, emotionally and physically. 5. Tiger Zinda Hai So, yeah, no surprises here again. The movie did not enjoy much of critical acclaim but made some major moolah at the box office. 6. Dhoom 3 Another Aamir Khan movie on the list. This is the third instalment in the Dhoom franchise and has him playing the antagonist. The movie had a budget of over 175 Crore and ended up crossing 589 Crore at the box office with ease. 7. Sanju Rajkumar Hirani's brilliant direction met Ranbir Kapoor's magic and you, obviously, a major hit was witnessed on the big screen. Sanju is a biopic on actor Sanjay Dutt and had Ranbir donning various looks over the course of the film. 8. War The surprise entry on this list is this recent action-packed movie, but then again, Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff look like a sure-shot recipe for a hit. The movie is a chase-and-run story of two soldiers and was a major hit for not this year only but this decade as well. 9. Chennai Express Finally an SRK movie on the list! This Rohit Shetty action-comedy made over 425 Crore at the box office making it one of the biggest hits of the decade. 10. Dabangg Turns out, Salman Khan is more prominent that one can give him credit. His first edition in this franchise was made on a budget of over a whopping 1.02 billion Rupees and ended up ringing in around 4.65 billion rupees, which explains why it is on the list. Okay, before you go all judgmental on us, a gentle reminder that this list has not been consolidated by us and is based on pure stats. There are so many more brilliant movies which should have been here but, turns out, the 'aam aadmi' is high on the entertainment value of these movies alone which led to some serious money-making.

  5. The real tragedy doesn't lie in being average, it's actually in being better than the average, being talented and possessing the heart to really chase after your passion. It's like being caught in an in-between, and that's an awful place to be in for anyone, but it's especially tragic for an actor. They are often good enough to be at par with the lead actors (or even better than the leads at times) but as luck would have it, lack of 'connections' and opportunities makes them settle for much less such as playing the second fiddle. © Instagram - Jimmy Shergill It's rather disheartening that my opening lines for an article on Jimmy Shergill should contain the term 'tragedy' in it, but it is what it is. This thet Punjabi munda, has always been deeply connected to his roots, glimpses of which can be found in a number of memorable characters Jimmy has portrayed in the last two decades of his presence in Bollywood. Yet, it wouldn't be unfair to say that the Hindi film industry has failed to explore the true potential of this talented actor who could have been much more. He was killed off even before we really got to know him in Munna Bhai M.B.B.S., Bang Bang saw him share a similar fate once again where his character drops dead in the first five minutes of the film. Plays a guy with speech impairment in a film where he is trying to woo a girl and honestly, he seems to be losing the girl in every movie he signs up. © Instagram - Jimmy Shergill But a number of his movies and performances have left a mark in the hearts of people who feel this guy really deserves more than just five minutes of footage, being tossed around uncharacteristically, or reservations, when it comes to applauding his good work. 1. Maachis © Eros Entertainment Jimmy Shergill's 1996 debut movie showed him in the role of a young college guy, forced by circumstances to pick up arms. But Jaimal's small role was still impactful and helped carry the plot forward. Yet, very few would remember him from the film that also starred Chandrachur Singh and Tabu in the lead. 2. A Wednesday © Friday Filmworks Perhaps one of Jimmy's most memorable performances for most people, Jimmy as police officer Arif Khan who makes it his life's purpose to foil possible bombings in his city and the way he goes about doing it all is commendable, to say the least. 3. Yahaan © Sahara One Motion Pictures Jimmy Shergill as Captain Aman in Shoojit Sircar's Yahaan, not only made for an insightful war drama but his performance as an Army officer as well as a lover, who falls for a Kashmiri woman amid war and unrest, cannot be easily forgotten. 4. Special 26 © Friday Filmworks How can we forget Sub-Inspector Ranveer Singh who does a rather marvellous job of sending the CBI into a complete spin and the workings of which are not discovered until the very end? Not only Jimmy's performance, but even the way his character evolves in the film deserves an honest mention. 5. Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster © Bohra Bros Jimmy Shergill really does manage to pull off the role of Aditya Pratap Singh with great aplomb. As Singh tries to hold the fort against political meanderings and pressure to maintain his lifestyle as royalty, the film takes us through the many unimagined ways love, betrayal and money work. 6. Tanu Weds Manu Series © Viacom 18 If not anything else, Jimmy Shergill as Raja Awasthi credits a mention as one of his really memorable performances. When the nemesis succeeds to inspire sympathy in the hearts of the audience, you should know there's something special there, and Raja is just that. A lot twisted and sharp around the edges, but one that allows light to break through the cracks. You cannot help but really feel for the guy here. View the full article

  7. 2019 has been a good year for smartwatches. While the Apple Watch continued to dominate the market, we also got to see a lot of offerings from other manufacturers. In fact, some of the smartwatches are so good that buying them is totally a no-brainer. So if you're looking for the best smartwatch of 2019, then these are the ones which we think are worth considering. Apple Watch Series 5 © YouTube/ Karl Conrad The Apple Watch Series 5 brings minor changes, but the Apple Watch Series 4 itself was so good that the new variant just makes it an even better watch to buy right now. The Apple Watch Series 5 now has an always-on display and comes with compass support. And on top of that, it brings all the great features that make the Apple Watch world's best smartwatch. This one gets an easy recommendation from us if you own an iPhone. Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 © Samsung Samsung's new Galaxy Watch Active smartwatch has quickly become very popular not only among the Galaxy phone users but others as well. Both the Galaxy Watch Active and the Galaxy Watch Active 2 are quite different from Samsung's usual Galaxy Watch and the Gear smartwatch options. These are more fitness-centric watches that are sleek and look really nice. They also have all the smart features that you may have come to expect from a smartwatch, so be sure to check them out. Amazfit GTS © Amazfit A lot of people are buying the new Amazfit GTS mainly because it looks like an Apple Watch. It's not a blatant copy like the new Mi Watch, but the Amazfit GTS does look a lot like the Apple Watch. Even the watch faces on the Amazfit GTS are similar to the ones on the Apple Watch. But even if you ignore that, the Amazfit GTS is a great smartwatch. It has a slim metal body that looks premium and has all the smart features and fitness-centric features. Also, this works with both Android as well as iOS, so you can actually buy this if you don't want to spend too much money on an Apple Watch. Fitbit Versa 2 © Fitbit Fitbit's new Versa 2 is also a great option if you want to buy a smartwatch. It comes with Amazon Alexa built-in and has 6+ days of battery life. Since this is a Fitbit device, it's primarily a fitness-centric device that happens to come with smart features of a smartwatch. You can check your notifications and even reply to messages, set reminders, etc. It also looks like a smartwatch rather than a Fitbit activity band, so that's great too. Well, those are our picks for the best smartwatches of 2019. If you're not willing to spend a lot of money and would rather buy a fitness band instead, then be sure to check out picks of the best fitness bands of 2019. View the full article
  8. Yesterday marked another historic day for people across the country and the world, after Supreme Court passed its verdict on the decades-old Ayodhya land dispute. A special five-judge Constitutional bench, set up by the Supreme Court of India, gave its verdict that the disputed site in Ayodhya will be used for the construction of a Ram temple. They further announced that a five-acre land in the area will be given to the Muslim community for the construction of a mosque. © Reuters On one hand, when the esteemed bench of judges were passing their judgement, people on social media were busy posting about it and soon enough, the hashtags blew up to an extent that it became a top trend...globally. Reportedly, #AyodhyaVerdict was the top trend yesterday not just in India but across the world, with more than 550,000 tweets. In fact, it's still one of the top trends in India. Apart from this, hashtags like #RamMandir, #BabriMasjid, #RamJanmabhoomi, #SupremeCourt, @RanjanGogoi, #HinduMuslimBhaiBhai and #AyodhyaJudgement were also among the top trends. © Twitter From PM Narendra Modi to Bollywood celebrities, almost everyone hailed this verdict by the Supreme Court. The five-judge Constitutional bench that passed the verdict included Justices DY Chandrachud, S Abdul Nazeer, Ashok Bhushan and SA Bobde and was headed by the Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi.

  11. Alongside the new Mi CC9 Pro smartphone and the new Mi TV 5 Series, Xiaomi also launched its first smartwatch today in China. It's called the Mi Watch, and yes, it looks exactly like the Apple Watch. Ignoring the fact that it's an Apple Watch ripoff, we do think that it has a lot going for it. And outside China, the watch will be running Google's WearOS, so we think this could actually be a really good option for people who are looking to buy a smartwatch. Here are the top 4 features that make it a perfect smartwatch for Android users - Design © Xiaomi Yes, it looks like an Apple Watch. We've already covered that. But if you ignore that, then you can't deny the fact that it looks really good. Its square-ish form factor looks premium, it has a bezel-less display just like the Apple Watch Series 5, and it also has a digital crown, which makes it look like a traditional watch. The Mi Watch sports a 4D curved stainless steel design with scratch-resistant sapphire glass protection up top. The digital crown is also coupled with a vibration motor, so we assume using it will be similar to using the digital crown on the Apple Watch. The 44mm casing of the watch is made out of the ceramic back and an aluminium alloy. The display is an AMOLED panel, so you're getting the best panel out there. Powerful Internal Xiaomi's Mi Watch is the world's first smartwatch to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 3100 4G processor. In case you didn't know, most WearOS-powered smartwatches have trouble when it comes to performance, but we think the Mi Watch will an edge over the others mainly because of the processor. Obviously, the software also plays a huge role, but we think it won't have much trouble handling WearOS. In China, by the way, the Mi Watch will be running a customized version of MIUI. © Xiaomi Battery Life The Mi Watch packs a generous 570 mAh battery inside, which is quite impressive. With that, Xiaomi says the Watch will last for up to 36 hours on a single charge, which, if true, is quite remarkable. There aren't a lot of smartwatches out there that can last for 36 hours with all the bells and whistles like a 1.78-inch AMOLED panel, eSIM support, NFC, GPS, and more. The Mi Watch can also track all your fitness activities, thanks to all the built-in sensors. © Xiaomi Price Well, price isn't exactly a feature, but the Mi Watch comes with an attractive price tag. Just like most Xiaomi products, the Mi Watch has been priced very competitively in China, and we think the same will be reflected in international markets as well. Xiaomi has launched the Mi Watch for just 1200 Yuan, which roughly translates to about Rs 20,000. © Mi Watch Considering the fact that most Android Wear watches from the likes of Fossil, Huawei Watch and more are priced well above Rs 25,000 to Rs 30,000 mark, we think this will do well. With that being said, we're not entirely sure if the watch will make its way to India. Xiaomi has not confirmed anything about the watch's released outside China just yet, so we'll just have to wait for more info. View the full article

  15. Possibly the best thing about PC Gaming (other than the graphics, controls, support, community, etc.) is just how frugal it is to buy games online. Steam, in particular, has a long-standing reputation for fantastic discounts for gamers. Memes about the owner company Valve's CEO, Gabe Newell, are littered across the pages of the internet. This week's sale happens to be on the occasion of Halloween - with the spooky holiday punctuated by several fantastic deals and Diwali bonuses sitting in our wallets, we've got you a wishlist that covers several genres and offers some truly hidden gems. Witcher 3, GOTY Edition Rs. 299 Yeah, there's no surprises here. I myself have bought this game twice - the box set map hung proudly on my wall for years, and I've played through the entire campaign more times than I ought to admit. Criminally cheap, infinitely replayable and quite possibly the best game of the 2010s - if you don't own this, you need to now. Yakuza 0 - Rs. 226 Slick, stylish and surprisingly emotional, this incredible tale of two Japanese gangsters looking to make it big in Tokyo and Osaka is an easy pick if you're into action titles that go over-the-top while still retaining a powerful, moving story arc, all set under the neon lights and bloodstained alleyways of 80's urban Japan. A Hat In Time Rs. 364 If you've been a gamer since the early 2000s, you might remember a genre that isn't so loved in today's battle-royale, shooter landscape - the action platformer. Gears for Breakfast has crafted an incredibly cute love letter to the genre in A Hat In Time. If you've enjoyed series such as the Super Mario franchise and other classics, you'll sink several hours into this absolutely delightful game. Dead Cells - Rs. 503 The 'roguelike' is a unique genre of video game designed to do two things - provide you with absolutely frustrating challenges that might result in you tossing your keyboard out the nearest window, while simultaneously getting you hooked onto said challenges like a button-mashing junkie. Great combat, absolutely beautiful pixel-art visuals and a superb, passionate team of developers. Grab this one ASAP. (Yeah, we know it costs above 500. Get over it.) Slime Rancher - Rs. 282 Sometimes, you don't want to slay monsters, trash-talk on multiplayer or deal with soul-crushing difficulty levels. Sometimes, you just want to sit back, relax and harvest some slimes. This cute little farming sim takes us to a world 1,000 light years from Earth, where a plucky young rancher begins to set up her own ranch. If only I could do something like that IRL. The Forest - Rs. 317 First of all, this is a game created by a team of four people - let that sink in. Atmospheric, immersive graphics, a terrifying, gorgeous environment, a captivating story and the ability to survive amongst creepy cannibals with upto 8 players on a single server. It's dark, atmospheric, challenging and soon, you'll be either conquering the wild, or hallucinating in the middle of a cannibal-inhabited jungle cave. Your call. With several more deals to grab, make sure to drop by the catalogue and browse for yourself too. View the full article

  18. Somewhere around 300 B.C. in the city of Alexandria - pride of Ancient Egypt - a Greek man named Euclid writes down a mathematical definition, “A straight line is said to have been cut in extreme and mean ratio when, as the whole line is to the greater segment, so is the greater to the lesser.” This line refers to what we now call the 'Golden Ratio', and featured in one of the greatest works of Greek mathematics ever written - the 13 volume treatise titled Elements. While we won't go into the specifics of geometry behind the ratio, its actual numerical value is 1.618. The brilliance of this number can't really be understated - ever since it was discovered, it's been found everywhere: In rose petals © Invision Countless works of art, such as the Mona Lisa © 99designs Donald Trump's head © knowyourmeme And even the galaxy itself © ABC Science Of course, it wasn't that long until someone tried to use this ratio in an attempt to quantify beauty, with crude psychological experiments in this field popping up in the 1860s in Germany. Now, however, a cosmetic surgeon from London has attempted to create a definitive list - using the 'Golden ratio' to determine scores for various facial features of some of the world's most popular and successful women in showbiz, as per the Daily Mail's report. © Instagram/Julian De Silva Dr. Julian De Silva from London's famous Harley Street compiled this list - using computerised mapping techniques that he also uses on his clients' faces - focusing on details such as eye position, face shape and several other facial features to create a definitive score. Let's take a look at his top five. #5 - Taylor Swift (91.64%) © Reuters “Another star who has emerged in the last five years. She rates very highly for her chin (97.8%) and lips (95.3) but was kept back by a low score (83%) for her eyebrows,” said Dr. Silva in his interview to the publication. #4 - Ariana Grande © Reuters “It is great to see one of the new generation of pop stars make the list. Ariana scored highly for her forehead (98%) and chin (96.1%). Marked down for her eyebrows (80%) and the larger than average gap (89.7%) between the top of her lips and her nose,” he said. #3 - Amber Heard © Reuters Dr. Silva explained, “Amber ranks so highly because of the wonderful shape of her nose (98%) and chin (99.6%). She has an ageless beauty. She would have been higher with a stronger face shape.” #2 - BeyonceÌ © Reuters “Beyoncé looks incredible as she approaches her 40s. She had a new perfect score for her face shape (99.6%), but was marked down for her eyebrows (87%) and chin (92.2%),” he said. #1 - Bella Hadid © Reuters Gigi Hadid's (who doesn't feature in the top ten at all) younger sister Bella made it to the very top of the list. According to Dr. Silva, “Bella Hadid is a worthy winner with stunning facial symmetry and a chin only 0.3% away from perfection. She also came second for her eye positioning (97.65%). She is one of the new generation of supermodels and could dominate the profession for the next decade with her stunning looks. Her biggest weakness is in the brow area. (88%).” Despite the obvious beauty of all these women, there's definitely something to be said for beauty in imperfection, and that it always depends on who's looking. What do you think? Let us know in the comments - especially if your #1 didn't make it to the list.
  19. Psychological thrillers are a genre that are attracting more and more attention every day. The best part about shows and movies from this genre is the storyline that keeps you hooked and you can't stop watching until you find out who the killer or villain is. While we all grew up watching thriller classics like I Know What You Did Last Summer, there are newer shows hitting the internet that every binge-watcher can watch. MX Player – India's leading streaming entertainment platform has wowed viewers with its multigenre range of MX Originals and with Hello Mini, it adds a psychological thriller to its ever-growing original library. And, we believe this is one show that needs to be on your binge-watch list without fail. A Gripping Storyline: Hello Mini is a show adapted from Novoneel Chakraborty's Stranger Trilogy, the series is high on eroticism, drama and thrill. The story follows the life of Rivanah Banerjee, played by newcomer Anuja Joshi who comes to Mumbai only to realize that she has is being followed by a stalker who not only knows everything about her life but can control aspects of it. We see her struggle to maintain a normal life as she moves through heartache, past trauma and being stalked and harassed. The show makes sure that you are involved in knowing who the 'Stranger' is and feel every emotion the character feel. Attention-Grabbing Performances: The show is made up of budding talent led by Anuja Joshi who gives a compelling performance as the damsel in distress who finds bursts of confidence throughout the plot. She moves through relationships and tries to keep up with a stalker who is hell-bent on controlling her life with the intensity that the show requires. She is supported by Priya Banerjee as Ishita, the best-friend who helps liberate Rivanah and pushes her into the life of sexual freedom and happiness along with that Mrinal Dutt who plays Danny Abraham.

Just have him say "Hey Google, play rain sounds" or "white noise" or "fan sounds." There's a whole list of relaxing sounds any Google Assistant speaker can make.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite: © YouTube The design has remained unchanged for years and that's because it's perfect as it is. Rather than a trendy glass built delicate gadget, the Kindle is an evergreen option for those who love to read. With month-long battery life, there's no stopping. The new Kindle Paperwhite offers something crucial in this day and age: a break from our smartphones, laptops, and TVs. After a hectic day of work, you want to be away from a screen.

The Bluetooth enabled earphones supports LDAC that allows one to enjoy high-resolution audio than conventional earphones.

Oh, and it has 30 hours of battery life. From Amazon.in 5. Mi Air Purifier 2S: © Xiaomi The Air Purifier 2S packs a dose of smarts you don't see in most competitors, such as Wi-fi connectivity and remote management from the Mi Home app. The fan never stops spinning unless you power the device down and Xiaomi says, the custom-made motor draws a mere 4.8 watts in normal operation. The addition of a small OLED display makes operations very convenient. Air pollution in India is here to stay for a long time, about time we start considering its long term effects and prepare accordingly. From Amazon.in 6. Fossil Sport Smartwatch: © YouTube The Fitbit is built with health and fitness as its primary selling point, the Fossil, on the other hand, is a fashion accessory.

It's compatible with Android and iOS as well as fit all 22mm straps. You can also customize the dial to match your mood or personalize select watch faces with your favourite Facebook or Instagram photos. From Amazon.in
  21. Apple decided to knock it out of the park with the new Mac Pro. It's one of the best and the most powerful pieces of hardware that Apple has ever put out. But with a starting price of $6,000, the Mac Pro, needless to say, is a pricey affair. That $6,000 price tag (roughly Rs 4.15 lakhs), by the way, is for the base variant of the Mac Pro. Apple decided to remain tight-lipped when it comes to the price of a maxed-out Mac Pro, which sort of makes it pretty obvious that it's not going to be cheap. Nope, not happening. In fact, the folks over at TheVerge decided to play around the number a bit and came up with an estimated figure. They shopped around for equivalent part that Apple announced during the keynote, and turns out, it's going to cost you a lot of money. Like, a lot. Well, before we tell you how much it'll most likely cost, let's check out how powerful a fully maxed-out Mac Pro really is. Once Apple puts it out on the market for purchase, you can configure a Mac Pro with a 28-core Intel Xeon W processor, to begin with. That's significantly more powerful than the 18-core iMac that they launched last year, which is already a beast of a machine. In addition to that processor, you can configure the Mac Pro with, wait for it, 1.5TB of RAM. No, that is not a typo. You can actually get a Mac Pro with 1.5 Terabytes of RAM. Also, you can get up to 4TB SSD and four AMD Radeon Pro Vega II Duo GPUs. That is, of course, if you can afford even one. © Apple As you can see, Apple's new Mac Pro is one of the most powerful computers out there on the market right now. The amount of performance you can get out of this machine is something that's almost impossible to comprehend. So, how much is it going to cost? According to TheVerge, a fully maxed out Mac Pro i.e. the top-of-the-line Mac Pro complete with a 28-Core Xeon processor, 1.5TB RAM, and all that good stuff will cost you at least $33,000, which roughly translates to about Rs. 22 lakhs. But wait, we haven't even added GPUs yet, which could easily bump the price up to around an eye-watering $45,000 i.e. roughly around Rs. 32 lakhs. Now, this isn't an iMac Pro we're talking about here, so you have to buy a monitor separately. Lucky for you, Apple also introduced a new 6K display called Pro Display XDR monitor. As the name suggests, it's basically the best monitor has ever created and it's apparently comparable to reference monitors out there that cost upwards of $40,000. © YouTube So, if you add that to the price to make it a fully maxed-out Mac Pro setup with Apple's best display, then you're looking at at least $50,000 which is roughly Rs 35 lakhs. Oh, you know what? Apple is not including the stand for the display inside the box, so please add that as well. That'll cost you an additional $1,000. Go figure! Do make a note that these are just estimates based on the prices of the components that are already out there on the market. We still don't know how much Apple is going to charge you for a fully maxed-out Mac Pro. But looking at Apple's history of pricing, you can expect it to be more than the market standard. And if you're planning to buy one in India, then you'll also have to factor the import duties, which is only going to make it more expensive. That being said, the new Mac Pro's, at least a fully a maxed-out Mac Pro, isn't meant for average everyday users anyway. By the word 'Pro', Apple is targetting the 'true' professionals like cinematographers and filmmakers. We can totally imagine the folks over at some film studio using a fully maxed-out Mac Pro to edit huge chunks of files.
  22. While PUBG Mobile has been on the center of all the spotlight, there's new battle royale title in town. That's right.

So, obviously, traversing through the map on foot will take a lot of times and there are a ton of vehicles that are worth checking out. Our recommendation would be to man a helicopter with your squad and just rain down fire from above. It's one of the best ways to spot enemies and kill them from above without getting into close combat. You can also rafts to get through the water bodies, but just stay clear of the snipers. They can take you off with just one shot! 3) Keep An Eye On The Supply Drops & Beacons © Call of Duty Mobile If you've played PUBG, then you already know how important Supply Drops are. They can valuable upgrade items that'll help you get an advantage in the game. Call of Duty Mobile also has beacons that mark the location of Class Upgrade items. These items will augment your particular set of skills that exclusive to each class. You might want to be a little cautious while approaching the supply drops because your enemies will also be swarming in to grab the goods. 4) Best Loot Location In The Map © Call Of Duty Mobile You know what's better than waiting for a supply drop for better gears? Drop in an area of the map which has the best loot in the game to get an edge over your enemies. Not all the areas in the map are good looting spots. Some places have enough to get you through the game, whereas some will leave empty-handed. Here are some of the best locations in Call of Duty Mobile where you can get some really good loot - • Sakura • Killhouse • Launch • Nuclear Plant • Shipment • Nuketown
  23. Arguably one of the biggest sporting events in the world, the 12th edition of the ICC World Cup is set to enthrall cricket enthusiasts when it kickstarts from 30th May, pitting the likes of hosts England and exciting South Africa against each other. Over a span of 45 days and across 48 scintillating contests, the ICC mega event is expected to bring the best of the participating nations in what promises to be an exciting affair. But, the World Cup isn't just about winning the coveted trophy. In fact, cricket's biggest tournament has a history of bringing exciting contests, fiery duels and individual brilliances to the fore. And, this year promises to be no different. From the top wicket-takers to leading run-scorers, the upcoming ICC tournament has had the cricket fans wondering who'd claim the top honours in individual performances. While we will discuss the wicket-taking heroes in another article, let's discuss the probables for the batting honours this year. © Reuters When it comes to scoring most runs in the World Cups, no one comes close to the legendary Sachin Tendulkar who scored 2,278 runs across six tournaments he played. Though Tendulkar's record will take some doing, but the current batting geniuses of the game will surely be eager to make a mark at the biggest stage. Going purely by numbers, here's a look at five batsmen who might be seen ruling the charts in the list of leading run-getters at the World Cup this year. Virat Kohli © Reuters Undeniably one of best batsmen in the world right now, Virat Kohli will be the key to India's charge at this year's World Cup. The Indian captain needs no introduction to batting and the fact that, at the age of 30, he has already slammed 41 ODI hundreds - only behind Tendulkar's tally of 49 tons, shows how special and consistent this lad is. But, that's not all. Kohli is going into the World Cup with a formidable form and, for someone who takes a special liking to big events, he is surely expected to reign supreme in England and Wales. To back that claim with numbers, Kohli has scored 4,306 runs at an average of 78.29 - most by any batsmen in ODIs since the World Cup in 2015. While it's really hard to predict whether he'll actually emerge as the leading run-scorer at the upcoming event, the numbers surely tip him as one of the favourites. And, given his artistry with the willow, we might end up seeing a Kohli special this year. Rohit Sharma © Reuters One of the most devastating openers in limited-overs cricket, Rohit Sharma, having begun his career as a middle-order batsman, found his true calling at the top of the order. A preferred opener by the Indian team management, Rohit has made the opening spot his own on the back of spectacular performances in white-ball cricket. His malleable wrists and knack to find the gaps have all added to his batting masterclass which continues to evolve over the years. Just like his skipper Kohli, Rohit will also be one of the vital cogs in India's dreams of lifting their third World Cup trophy this year. Since the 2015 edition of the World Cup, Rohit has amassed 3,790 ODI runs at an average of 61.12 - only behind Kohli in the elite list. His last stint in England saw him smashing an unbeaten 137 in the first ODI in Nottingham - something that should bolster his confidence going into the World Cup. The right-handed batsman is coming off a title-winning season with Mumbai Indians who lifted a record fourth IPL trophy this season. While there is no doubt over Rohit's abilities, the Indian opener will need convert his starts into big figures if he intends to challenge other batsmen for the top batting honours at the World Cup. Joe Root © Reuters For someone who was tipped as a future England captain at the age of 23, Joe Root has not only lived up to the billing, but has also successfully managed to rally his troops in the build-up to the World Cup at home. Rated amongst the top batsmen in the world, Root, on his day, is more than capable of running away with the game. At this year's World Cup, Root will surely be a key player, providing the much-needed stability to their batting line-up. If playing at home doesn't strengthen his case, the fact that Root has slammed 3,498 runs at an average of 58.30 in ODIs (since the 2015 World Cup) further makes a probable candidate for the top batting honours in the upcoming event. The right-handed batsman will be seen leading England's charge at the ICC spectacle, but while his leadership skills will be put to test, Root's batting might cannot be questioned. Eoin Morgan © Reuters One of the batting mainstays for England over the years, Eoin Morgan will once again be seen stabilising the innings for his side while plying his trade in the middle-order. The left-handed batsman has all the experience he needs to make this event his own and playing in familiar conditions further helps his cause. Predictions apart, according to the numbers, believe it or not, Morgan is placed fourth in the list of leading run-scorers in ODIs since the 2015 World Cup. The left-hander has scored 3,039 runs at an average of 46.75 - something that surely makes him one of the probables for the top batting honours at the World Cup this year. For those who need more than just numbers to believe his batting might, Morgan, recently, broke a roof tile with a huge six during the fifth ODI between England against Pakistan at Headingley. How's that for intent? Quinton de Kock © Reuters A sweet timer of the ball who thrives on his fearless striking abilities, Quinton de Kock has established himself as South Africa's preferred opening batsman over the years. The left-handed batsman, who grew up as a baseball player, can take on any opposition bowling attack and give them a run for their money with his brutal hitting. De Kock goes into this year's World Cup with 2,971 runs at an average of 50.33 in ODIs. There's no surprise to see him at the fifth spot in the list of top run-getters in the 50-over format since the 2015 edition of the World Cup. To put things in perspective, De Kock has amassed 353 runs, including three fifties and a hundred, in his last five ODI innings. Given the conditions, De Kock is likely to cherish the challenge and tear into the opposition bowling attack. His success with the willow will be key to South Africa's hopes of getting rid of the 'chokers' tag and clinch their maiden World Cup title this year.
  24. India celebrates the most desirable men, every year, through a generic public poll and each year the results are fantastic and very well deserving. While we do need desirable men to become an icon for the youth and inspiration for everyone else, there are only a few who can make it to the top 50. These men work hard on themselves, are humble beyond doubt and always do inspirational things to mould the generation's basic ideology. Be it a cricketer, an actor, a singer or a model, Indian men who've had self-made careers and believe in basic humility, while never forgetting who they truly are, deserve this rank, rightfully. © Instagram So, when The Times decided to hold a poll so that the top 50 desirable men could stand out, we were more than happy with the results. The results were unveiled today, and Vicky Kaushal grabs the top spot this year. Yes, he's certainly the king of desirability and the most favoured male celebrity in the country right now to take the numero-uno spot. While we all know he's an ace actor, people also acknowledge his versatility to play varied roles. Whether he's in a supporting role in films like 'Raazi' or 'Sanju' or he's experimenting with over-the-top content with web series like 'Love Per Square Foot' and 'Lust Stories', he's played every character with ease and reasonability and made a suitable place for himself. © Instagram "I was shocked to know that I was on the list, and then, to be at the top… that was a huge surprise. I am still coming to terms with it. I can't figure out what people saw in me and why they chose me for the top spot. But I thank everyone who voted for me and the internal jury, with all my heart.

  25. The wearables space is populated with a ton of fitness bands. Obviously, the best fitness trackers from the likes of Fitbit, Garmin, etc. is going to cost you a lot, but you know what? You don't necessarily have to spend that much to get in shape. We've handpicked a few affordable options from around the internet, and these are the ones which we think are worth checking out: 1. Xiaomi Mi Band 3 © YouTube If you are in the market to buy a fitness band and if you're on a budget, then Xiaomi's Mi Band 3 is your best option. Carrying a price tag of Rs. 1,999, the Mi Band 3 is probably the best one you can get your hands on. For starters, it comes with a battery life that should last you around an entire month if you're going easy on it. It doesn't have GPS, but it comes with a bunch of other useful features like a heart rate monitor, tracking tech to count the steps you've taken, and more. It'll also show the incoming calls and message notifications, which a lot of other fitness bands don't offer. Seriously, there's a lot to like about the Mi Band 3, and the price tag only makes it better. 2. Honor Band 4 © YouTube Honor's range of fitness bands have gotten a lot better now and the new Honor Band 4 is a really good option. From a large 0.95 AMOLED Touch screen to features like Scientific Sleep Monitoring and Heart Rate Monitoring, the Honor Band 4 has everything. The Honor Band 4 is also water resistant for up to 50 meters, and it comes with a battery that can last for over 2 weeks. Just like the Mi Band 3, the Honor Band 4 can also show you notifications, so it's always a good thing. 3. Huawei Band 3 Pro © YouTube If you're looking for something a bit more sophisticated than the Honor Band 4, then you can check out the Huawei Band 3 Pro. Just like the Honor Band 4, the Huawei Band 3 Pro has a 0.95-inch AMOLED display with which you can interact with the band. The Huawei Band 3 Pro is also the only band in the list which has a built-in GPS along with a heart-rate tracker. The 24-hour real-time heart rate monitoring will take a toll on battery life, though. With Huawei Band 3 Pro, one can also get personalized exercise tracking, in addition to features like Trusleep scientific sleep tracking, and more. 4. Amazfit Bip © YouTube Amazfit Bip is the only tracker in the list which has a large screen that makes it look like a smartwatch. Some may even call it an Apple Watch clone because it looks very similar. However, it's not just the display that you should be attracted to. It features a battery that can last you for over 40 days on a single charge. It's simply amazing considering the fact that it has a lot of other features like GPS, barometer, geomagnetic sensor, ppg heart rate sensor, 3-axis accelerometer for activity, sports and sleep tracking, and more. It can also show you notifications, so you won't find yourself reaching out for your phone.
