  1. About a year ago, almost this time around, Yashraj Mukhate dropped his first viral rap that we doubt anyone on social media would have missed. It was a scene from the Indian soap Saath Nibhaana Saathiya (yes, the one famous for its laptop-cleaning scene by Gopi bahu). The rap called ‘Rasode Me Kon Tha’ made Mukhate ‘viral king of the year’. © Instagram/Yashraj Mukhate He has released several mashups since then and has created a niche for himself. Mukhate blends dialogues from interviews and viral videos with beats and music and makes a hilarious AF rap. All his rap songs have gone viral and are loved by the fans, the most popular one being Tommy ft. Shehnaaz Gill and of course, 'Biggini Shoot'. © Instagram/Yashraj Mukhate He just dropped another rap and this time it features ‘Baji Bombastic’ the ultimate ‘safarer’. She is a fictional comedy character created by Instagrammer Sheherzade Noor Peerzada. In the video, originally posted on the Instagram account of ‘Baji Bombastic’, she is vacationing at some scenic place and says “bhot lovely hai’. She says she loves to ‘safar’. © Instagram/Yashraj Mukhate Mukhate mixed the video with some beats and background score and created a travel anthem for all those who love to ‘safar’. He named the rap ‘I Love To Safar’ and wrote in the caption, “May you all safar. Dedicated to all the wanderlust travellers and sufferers.” © Instagram/Yashraj Mukhate If you have tested positive for wanderlust during the pandemic too, you will miss ‘safaring’ after this. You have to see it yourself. Watch the video here. View this post on Instagram The fans were in splits and they can’t wait to ‘safar’ too. A user wrote, “My life loves to make me safar.” Another wrote, “I mean, what a kickstart to the week. We are all suffering.” The only difference is, while Baji Bombastic is ‘saffaring’, we are here ‘suffering’. © Instagram/Yashraj Mukhate The video is going viral yet again and has garnered over 4 lakh views, so far. Whether you miss travelling, nay saffaring or not, you can still end your suffering of WFH and lockdown by listening to this hilarious rap, at least for a while. View the full article
  2. In case you were wondering just how bizarre people on social media can be, a man claiming to be from the future has “predicted” when will the next world war take place and why it would be fought. © Paramount Pictures Be warned though that the man usually communicates using TikTok. Make of that what you will, but do take his ‘predictions’ with a pinch of salt. The Time Traveller who goes by the username “@timetraveler2582” (because he’s from the year 2582, he says) claims that the next World War will start in 2048. The man put up a video on TikTok and a few other social media platforms, claiming that a lot of his followers have asked when will the next world war be fought. Putting an end to all speculations, he responded by putting up a video. © TikTok/timetraveler2582 He started by saying that, unlike the previous two World Wars which were ‘total wars,’ the third one will be a ‘precision war.’ © TikTok/timetraveler2582 He continues, saying, “WW3 will start in 2048 but the world war is generally said to have begun on Thanksgiving day, 2051.” © TikTok/timetraveler2582 Giving more details, they went on: "The cause of this war will be with the attack on the US orbital defence network and subsequent declarations of war.” He even names countries like Poland, Turkey, and Japan and the USA being involved in a major conflict. © TikTok/timetraveler2582 People, surprisingly, commented on his video, stating that they were going to move away from where they lived while others revealed they would be building a shelter. A viewer of his asked, "Question and please answer, will Canada be okay? Do we find a way to survive?" Another added: "POLAND? A’ight I'm moving out." Make what you will of these predictions and everything, but one cannot deny, there is a guilty pleasure of sorts in entertaining thoughts such as these. That is why, no matter how ludicrous such “predictions” may seem to be, people listen to the story with a very keen interest, even though they are more likely to dismiss such stories off. The traveller’s Instagram bio has quite a few ominous-sounding predictions. One line says that “Humans open-mindedness will soon change forever.” Another one, reads just a date from November, later this year. © Instagram/timetraveler2582 Make of all this what you will, but one thing is clear for sure. People have very vivid imaginations, and that they have a lot of time on their hands. View the full article
  3. The last month of the year is mostly filled with a lot of festive fun, gifting and travel. Be it a short weekend trip or a long winter vacation, the holiday season is everyone’s favorite. However, this year, things are bound to be slightly different. Even though the vaccine bears promising results, for now, all that we can plan are short, solo weekend road trips. Travelling is still unsafe, however, we do understand that some of you may need a break from isolation. This is exactly why today, we are here to talk about some of the most essential grooming and hygiene items that you must keep in your travel bag. Keep your journey short and safe! 1. MensXP Mud Everyday Hygiene Essentials Kit Firstly, you need to take care of all your hygiene needs. You need alcohol based products by your side.

Pollution can be deadly for your skin and it’s important that you protect it all times. This is why we recommend using this Anti-Pollution Cream by Vedaearth. It will help you tackle signs of aging and protect your skin against the toxic air quality. __ECOMPRODUCT__900__ The Bottomline Even though we have all almost gotten back to our old lives, let’s not forget that taking precautions is still a priority. We do recommend that you keep your travels short and avoid group travels as much as possible. Explore More View the full article

  6. We all want to do this – quit our jobs and travel full-time. It has been talked about so much it has almost become a cliché, and yet we still can't bring ourselves to take the plunge. But every once in a while, we come across the story of a free spirit who manages to break the cycle and come out alive. There are people out there who have given up their cushy corporate jobs to travel the world and they haven't looked back. One such person is Jatin Adlakha, a computer science engineer from BITS Pilani, who is now a full-time traveller. For the past 4 years, he has been travelling on his bike and has covered over 70,000 km. Last year, Jatin managed to trek solo to Mt. Everest Base Camp and the journey changed his life forever. © Jatin Adlakha Like you and me, he worked a regular 9-to-6 job in a corporate company. And like most middle class Indian families, his childhood consisted of regular family trips on LTC, thanks to his banker dad. But the travel bug hit him hard when he got his first bike. Jatin set off to explore the country on the weekends he got off from work. The call of the road was strong and eventually, Jatin decided to quit his job to do what he loved most – travel to places unknown to him. One of the most difficult parts of quitting your job to follow our passion, besides the financial part, is convincing your parents. Like most Indian parents, they were apprehensive. Jatin says, “For them, it was a 3 years' journey from saying, 'No, it's not going to happen', 'You're going mad', to 'Okay, but not alone', to 'Take Care' to finally, 'Enjoy!'.” Sooner or later, parents do come around and give in to our decisions in life, don't they? © Jatin Adlakha The lure of the hills was enticing enough for Jatin to leave everything behind. He sold off his belongings, and set off for one of the most life-changing trips one can ever undertake in life – a solo trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp. For the uninitiated, the Everest Base Camp (EBC) is at 5346m above sea level and witnesses temperatures as low as -20 degree Celsius. The winds are so cold and harsh they can effectively tear your skin away. But for thrill-seekers and mountain-lovers, that is just something that makes the challenge sweeter. Talking about the trek, Jatin says, “A typical day on the trail looked like waking up around 5-530 in the morning to a day which already had opened up, freshening up maintaining a distant relationship with water, and starting the walk around 7-730am after a heavy breakfast.” © Jatin Adlakha When asked the most beautiful thing he learnt from his travels, Jatin reminisces fondly, “I found that love is everywhere. In newness, in strangers, and even in the wild. Here is a story: “In my 2 days at Namche Bazaar (a mountain town on the Everest Base Camp trek), I stayed in a local Nepali house with Sherpas—I had befriended one of them while trekking up. I had shared my bed with 10 to 15 porters, it was a giant bed made out of keeping many cots together […] The love that I received there was exceptional. The day I was to pack up and leave for my trek ahead, there was a frenzied atmosphere in the room, everyone was making sure I had everything I needed. Picture your mom sending you off on the day of an exam making sure you got everything; it was like that, with 5-7 moms ( the caretaker of the house, others and the Sherpas)! Such love is highly impactful, it gave me a sense of responsibility to give back the love to society, to do many more random acts of kindness.” *A page from my Adventure Notebook* . . "To Travel is to find a new perspective.", I was hearing Jason Silva say this just today. Yep, that's about right. And To Adventure I must say is to discover your own potential, gauge just a little more from that unfathomable infinite pool we carry within. . . Well aware that I will get camps in Kheerganga, I had still carried my tent with me on the (~12 kms each side) trek to train myself for a tougher trek in near future. It had rained heavily that night, the heavy downpour sounded like music to my ears; and in that cold weather, I slept curled up in my blanket oblivious to the materialistic worries of the world. Come morning, some folks from nearby tents joined me for some chat bringing their chairs, and I sat on the boulder savouring the view; rejoiced. . . This was part of my solo Himalayan Odyssey on my bike and with my tent which lasted 81 days and 3,688.9 kms and recently concluded. Follow my feed as I bring to you many pictures and tales from the Himalayan land and other adventures of mine. Facebook: www.fb.com/wanderingjatin Instagram: @wanderingjatin YouTube: Wandering Jatin (username) . . Also check out my travel blog which is now live at www.wanderingjatin.in. A post shared by Jatin Adlakha (@wanderingjatin) on Aug 23, 2017 at 6:11am PDT Travelling full time is not easy, especially when it comes to managing finances. As a man in the Indian society, you are expected to keep food on the table at all times and depending on parents for money is not an option. Jatin managed to make his love of travel sustainable by opening his own travel company Wander Gupt in December 2017. “Gupt trips means the location and itinerary is kept secret, I declare roughly what is to be expected. I believe travel isn't as much as about the destination as it is about the experiences themselves,” he quips. © Jatin Adlakha Travelling alone and on the road can be a challenge. When I ask him about any bad experiences he faced while travelling, he says, “I tend to forget the negative experiences very naturally. On the road things happen on constant basis, good and bad, I learn from the bad but my body as if almost on auto mode doesn't keep brooding over the bad experience.” Jatin is unfazed even as he recalls a bike accident he had while riding through Maharashtra. Perhaps that is one of the many things travel teaches you – to take everything in your stride, and let go of bad memories. © Jatin Adlakha A journey like this cannot leave you untouched. You change a little with every trip undertaken. You are no longer the same person. For Jatin, the trek to the Everest Base Camp was a life-changing one. His humble confession about his trekking experience says it all: “I interacted with Sherpas who had walked to EBC over forty times carrying weights over 80 kilos while my 8 kg bag seemed like a rock sometimes. I walked with an Everest Summiteer for almost 2 hours, who was returning from her successful summit to Mt Amadablan at 6800 m. I witnessed a girl breaking into laughter upon the falling of her artificial leg while trekking up Namche Bazaar, 'Oh, it's the sweat', she said. I sat consumed in the games the mountains, clouds and the sun played. I gaped at those mountains of gigantic proportions and submitted. I returned with newer experiences and friendships, which I shall cherish forever with a smile. Put in my place by those snow-clad huge mountains, maybe I gained nothing for a change. Or, probably gained a lot. But I do know that I lost my 'self' in those high passes.” You can read more about his journey on his blog Wandering Jatin
  7. As a 44-year-old father of two, Hrithik Roshan looks like the Guinness World Record holder of anti-ageing abilities. And well, he's come a long way from mesh tank tops and jeans that were a little too relaxed —though, they too, were iconic in themselves. But that's like digging into the past and picking nostalgia over style. That's just wrong. Having said that, there's a lot to talk about Roshan's style anyway. Over time and since a few years now, his denim has started to fit him a lot better, he's been picking polo T-shirts/just T-shirts over dad-like shirts and wearing baseball caps left, right and centre. His almost-dadcore staples are now seeming to exude some youthfulness — which is great. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani But if his recent airport outing is any proof, he has skipped another level in excellence now: © Viral Bhayani There's a lot of commitment to chill #AirportStyle in visibility here. If you analyse the core of this outfit here, it's quite the uniform of a cool-arse dad. A father, who gives life lessons to his kids and when asked, helps in building a Lego house too. He's the dad who's at the age of being a father of two now-old-enough off-springs, but doesn't want to appear like that. And that's exactly the vibe he's gone for here. As usual, he's opted for comfort while travelling, by slipping into a polo T-shirt. Remember, not a graphic T-shirt. His choices are definitely more polished, considering the polo is a must-have for every rich man out there. But as a flag-bearer of his youth, instead of classic wash jeans, Roshan's rendition of ripped, distressed (but bandaged) jeans look quite cool. © Viral Bhayani Meaning, he's now finally found the middle-ground based on the streetwear-meets-dadcore life. Notice how his trainers are yet, very dad-like (big, clunky, ordinary), indicating that the actor's roots of India's coolest dad haven't been left by the actor in the past. In fact, over time, he's now become the dad that travels to Coachella, gets dirty with the crowd and once back home, turns to babysitting in the exact same spirits. © Viral Bhayani Now, this one big feat Hrithik has achieved.
  8. Gone are the days, when people believed in mystics and everything they said. People are now moving forward from Baba Vanga to other sources, who can give you a better picture of how kickass the future looks like. You guessed it right, folks. We are talking about time travellers. Just like there is no dearth of mystics and their bizarrely accurate predictions, similarly there is no dearth of stories where people claim to have come from the future. After all, these are the stories that fuel directors' imagination or give them fodder for making movies like 'Back to the Future', 'Interstellar', 'Time Crimes' and 'The Time Traveller's Wife'. © youtube apex TV Time and again, theorists have tried to prove time travel wrong; yet every time someone comes up with an account that sounds so real that our knowledge, reality and life goes for a toss. One such story has been served by 'Noah', who claims to be from 2030 and is now stuck in 2018. In fact, this self-proclaimed time traveller's story has most of us convinced, especially because he and his predictions have successfully cleared the lie detector test. Noah stated that he wanted to remain anonymous as he has risked his life for the ones living in this time, by revealing what the future has in store for us. Well, fair enough, but we guess we are fine with Noah being anonymous, as long as he shares some intriguing and interesting facts about life in 2030. © youtube apex tv If his unbelievable claims weren't enough to raise the bar of our excitement, the fact that he cleared the lie detector test further makes us question reality. So, what were the predictions he made? First, Donald Trump will be re-elected as the President of the United States, people will be living on Mars by 2028, AI will improve, people will use bitcoins more, global warming will worsen and humans will discover “intelligent alien life”. Basically, everything that ever happened in Hollywood blockbuster sci-fi movies will come true for us. We guess Donald Trump should just give Noah a permanent citizenship and a green card right now, since he low-key secured his presidency. If the fact that Donald Trump will be elected again in 2020 wasn't shocking enough for the world to handle, he predicted that a certain Ilana Remikee will be the US President in 2030. Take note guys, it will help you clear your general knowledge tests in the future. And we guess, somewhere in North Korea, Kim Jong Un also will be making notes right now on how to deal with Trump for another 4 years. © wikimedia After people failed to believe his words, Noah decided to do a lie detector test with Apex TV and his answers have left the whole world baffled. People first heard about Noah, after 'Paranormal Elite' published a video about someone claiming to be from future. In fact, by the looks of the video, Noah looks like someone in his mid-20s. But, surprisingly Noah is about 50 years old, who has taken some secret drugs to bring him back to his youth. Noah also suffers from anxiety and depression, which he blames to the time travelling he has been doing. “It is not my intent to deceive anybody. I want to be clear, my sole objective is to prove to you that time travel exists. In fact, I myself am a time traveller,” Noah said on the camera. There we have, just the disclaimer we were waiting for. © wikimedia If Noah's words are to be believed then time travel exists since 2003, but it's 'not planned to be released to the public' until 2028. Folks, we think it's time to question our leaders now. If such information exists in the world, we guess we need to get our hands on it right now, just so we can get an idea of how successfully we have managed to f*** our lives.

Angelina Paris © Paris Info Get set to take a walk down memory lane with a visit to this quaint tea room. Over a century old, the authentic Parisian nook is a must on any bucket list. Proust and Coco Chanel are known to have rubbed shoulders with the biggest names in fashion in Angelina's salons. The interiors of the confectionery combine elegance, charm and refinement to create a sense of romanticism and poetry. Angelina is a tranquil, exquisite space, somewhere between serenity and indulgence.

  10. Internet is a very weird place. From creating a low-fat meal to making a bomb; from looking up for extraterrestrial movies to searching for the existence of aliens, immortals or vampires; you can find any information at just one click. Talking about vampires, I am sure in our growing years most of us wondered if there were any chances of them living in the real world. Movies like ‘E.T, Twilight', ‘Alien' series, ‘30 Days of Night', and ‘Bram Stoker's Dracula'; further fueled our curiosity. © american zeotrope Do you think, vampires or immortals exist in the same world and dimension with us? Do you think the person sitting next to you in the metro has been living for more than 1000 years? Well, we don't know about them, but there is one person people believe is an immortal being, whom we couldn't suspect the least bit. © wikimedia In fact, he has been actively working in movies like ‘The Matrix', ‘John Wick', ‘Little Buddha' and ‘Knock Knock' to name a few. He is none other actor Keanu Reeves and if we keep our brains aside and look at all his old pictures and movies, it seems that time froze in his case. Whether it is the year 1995 or 2015, the 52-year-old Keanu Reeves looks like he is still in his early 20s or 30s. Now, either he has been sipping from a bottle of an anti-ageing elixir or his Botox game is on point. © BCCL Well, even our heart wants to believe that Keanu is a human, but this site called Keanu Is Immortal has been throwing shade…oops light on this matter for quite some time now. With every scroll down, we fall deep in love with this site that has listed in detail the similarities between Reeves and his alter egos from the past. Some of the notable personalities are Charlemagne (748-814) and Paul Mounet (1847-1922). Paul Mounet was replaced by Keeanu Reeves: a conspiracy theory thread pic.twitter.com/rCLocNkvNR — bernard (@bearnerdg) May 17, 2017 It does make sense given that he shares a striking resemblance with the French actor Mounet, and we are glad that he did not leave his exceptional acting prowess, even as Reeves. Further, a comment by Reeves triggered this theory more. When asked about donating £50 million, he said “Money is the last thing I think about. I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries.” Hmm, centuries you say! Are there any chances of adopting a few of us Keanu? Now, while we all were coming to terms with this shocking revelation and were in a dilemma of which side to choose – science and logic or our fanciful eyes; Reeves cleared the air around it in a recent interview with Jimmy Fallon. At his ‘The Tonight Show', Reeves was shown pictures of his supposed previous personalities and his priceless reaction is worth watching on a loop. He also mentioned how he was almost about to change his name to Chuck Spadina to get in the acting world. Check out the hilariously awesome interview here. The fact that he was in ‘Bram Stoker's Dracula' kind of creeps us now, but we love him anyway and don't really care if he is really a vampire or an immortal. As long as this legendary actor continues emitting the hotness and sexiness he has been containing all this while. Also, we ain't sure about him but his movies will surely live till eternity.
