  1. In the summer of 2019, the world's largest democracy goes to polls to elect India's Prime Minister for the next 5 years. World over, the Indian elections take centre stage as an estimated 850 million people will cast their votes making this the largest democratic exercise in world history. For context, that's almost triple the entire population of the United States. And, a rather large chunk of this will be of people between 18-35 years old making it the largest group of millennials worldwide to vote a state leader into office. Lastly, perhaps most importantly, Indian women are voting in greater numbers than ever before, with profound implications for campaigning and policy-making in the country. © Pintrest India's shifting realities are in greater focus when reflecting on the past, when voting was a collective family affair where youngsters simply voted for the candidate their family was loyal to, without any questions asked. But as they say, 'The times they are a changing', millennials are voicing their independent opinion on most things in their lives including political preferences. Recently though, we got hold of fairly interesting data, where voting and millennials are concerned. According to the dating app OKCupid, that matches single millennials on the basis of shared values and belief systems, millennials are very socially aware and political in nature. The app released information on whether political beliefs affect the dating lives of individual youth in the country. © Pintrest The discovery was that yes, Indian millennials are politically aware, but slightly less invested, and would willingly support any cause that they feel strongly about. But politics or political leanings are definitely not a deal breaker when it comes to relationships or dating. Surprisingly enough, politics and love do not correlate for daters on the app to the point that politics is the least favourite topic of conversation for people meeting both online or offline. Another surprising element to emerge from the data was how women are far more mindful about the political leanings of the person they date, compared to men. Men do not seem to care what the women they date think about politics or who they support! But women are a lot more concerned when it comes to politics. I guess, men are more laid back and chilled and don't really care about any form of political inclination to date someone. © Pintrest But one thing that clearly stands out was the stance men take on people not voting at all in the country. Although they don't care what someone's political inclination is but they are mindful about casting votes. In fact, 51% of men believe that there should be some kind of penalty for people who don't vote. Yes, agreed we live in a democracy and everyone should have the right to practice and preach what they believe in but this belief stems from the fact that people comprise the democracy and it's equally important to vote, in order to see it flourish. But here's a stark contradiction from the data gathered. A staggering 78 per cent men and 75 per cent women say that voting is very important to them, while only 17 per cent men and 19 per cent women think it's not so important (and for the remaining, not important at all!). While both men and women don't encourage political agendas where relationships and dating is concerned, a lot do feel it's important to vote, and some do feel there should be a penalty for those who don't!. © Pintrest But that's the thing. While men and women do feel voting is fairly important, it may not come as a shock that a majority of men (64 per cent) and women (62 per cent) don't enjoy discussing politics at all. They might be aware, but choose not to make this heated topic of conversation typical of bedroom or dining table discourse. And that's a fact. Yes, most dating apps have the option to list your political inclination but which conversation ideally starts with 'who are you voting for or who did you vote for.'? It's a basic standpoint that politics and dating really don't mix if you want to take it ahead smoothly, instead of having heated arguments over it. Here are some more questions that were raised through the app towards young men, and here's the data accumulated for that: Would you risk your life to protest against an unjust government or for a cause that you feel strongly about? 57 per cent men are willing to risk their lives to fight for their rights or for a cause they truly believe in. All they need is a little push to bring out the activist in them. © Pintrest Do you believe it is important to stay informed about political issues affecting your nation? Yes, 92 per cent men believe it's important to stay informed. After all, an aware citizen has the ability to make informed choices. However informed the people might be, when it comes to dating, Indian millennials are undeterred by politics and do not want to make it a part of their life, or rather love life. Could you date someone who has (and acts on) radical-left or right politics? A majority of people are open to dating someone who has a strong political inclination for the right or left wing (43 per cent men and 37 per cent women) as long as it's not violent. Some people though would not think about it (25 per cent men and 29 per cent women). The remaining (20 per cent men and 25 per cent women) are not sure and others would rather not comment (12 per cent men and 9 per cent women). © Pintrest Could you date someone who has strong political opinions that are the exact opposite of yours? Surprisingly, when it comes to dating a person, 54 per cent women would like to match with partners who share their political beliefs whereas only 21 per cent men care. Which is more important for a good match? (Having similar political beliefs | having good *** | having similar hobbies) Well, Indian millennials are quite clear about this one! Having good *** (86 per cent men and 75 per cent women) is far far more important than having similar political beliefs (14 per cent men and 25 per cent women) for a good match and happily ever after. Which of the following would you rather discuss with someone you just met? (Musical preferences | Political beliefs | Philosophical beliefs | Sports ) Given the choice of topics they would like to discuss when they first meet offline, a majority of users mentioned musical preferences (53 per cent men and 55 per cent women), followed by a much smaller chunk of people saying philosophical beliefs (32 per cent men and 34 per cent women), then sports (11 per cent men and 4 per cent women) and lastly, political beliefs (4 per cent men and 7 per cent women) being the least preferred topic. © Pintrest When you first talk online with someone, which of the following would you prefer to talk about? (*** | Politics & Current Events | Activities | Personal History or Experiences) While meeting people online, daters would rather talk about personal history or experience (48 per cent men and 50 per cent women), personal hobbies and activities (44 per cent men and 43 per cent women). The least preferred topics of discussion online are *** (6 per cent men and 2 per cent women) or politics and current events (3 per cent men and 3 per cent women). So, to summerise, while Indian men and women do feel politics is an integral part and social awareness is a must and that casting a vote is something that should be made mandatory, they do not let these beliefs seep into relationships and dating. They actually keep an open mind and follow the 'to each his own' philosophy in order to avoid discord, or choose someone on the basis of their political inclination. The youth is smart and 'woke', according to this well-orchestrated research and they actually know what they really want. So, in case you want some help looking for the right match, you know what to talk about and what to bring up, in a conversation.
  2. Phase 6 of General Elections 2019 is about to see the light of the day this Sunday on 12th May 2019 with 7 states going to polls. While all is well when it comes to putting our democratic rights to use by choosing to vote, we need to bear in mind some finer details before casting our votes this election season. © Getty Images Whether you are a first-time voter or happen to be an old goose, being aware of some aspects of electing our representatives is always a good idea. Right from the very basic, yet crucial requirement of knowing the candidates from your constituency to finding resonance with their respective ideologies and manifestos, it is important to keep in mind that we make an aware decision that would not only impact our society but the future of our country too. © Getty Images Here are the 5 things Indian youth need to keep in mind before casting their vote this election: 1. Employment The biggest deciding factor for every youngster who is heading out vote, should be this. As of 2018, 18.9 million Indians were unemployed in the country which is by far the highest over the last few decades. Make your decision on the basis of which party you believe is most invested in the matter and would walk the talk when it comes to providing jobs to millions of jobless Indians. © Getty Images 2. Freedom & Security Freedom to exist however we want, love whoever we want, eat whatever we want, wear whatever we want, study what we want, challenge the wrong when we see it, and much more. Look for Lok Sabha representatives who would ensure that we don't feel threatened for enjoying and employing our fundamental rights or live in fear because we know our rights. © Getty Images 3. Secularism Perhaps one of the biggest needs of the hour. Let's take into consideration the candidates who encourage pluralism and secularism in our society. Let's do away with extremities of any kind and people who propagate such ideologies within our society. India draws its strength from diversity and its willingness to welcome one and all to its golden soil. © Twitter 4. Education Education and a strong, fair opinionated disposition should be the right of every Indian citizen. Privatisation and the constant need to manipulate our education system is not to be tolerated under any circumstances. No matter which party comes into power, we must look for such candidates who would continue to keep education away from all political propaganda. © Getty Images 5. Start-Up Economy Given the kind of boom the Indian start-up ecosystem has seen in recent times, and all the promising opportunities it holds for our country and its future, we as young adults should choose someone who is willing to work on the start-up scenario, improve it and help in the growth of a start-up economy which would allow thousands to build their dreams and see them succeed. An aware decision will be the best decision you make this election.
  3. On Monday, the Indian Army made an interesting claim on their Twitter account that has left the internet divided. The claim was about the discovery of 'mysterious footprints of the mythical beast 'Yeti' '. Yes, they even posted pictures of what looks like the footprints of Yeti, the 'elusive snowman'. According to the post, the Mountaineering Expedition Team of the Indian Army discovered these footprints of the 'Yeti' measuring 32x15 inches, near Nepal's Makalu Base Camp on April 9. For the first time, an #IndianArmy Moutaineering Expedition Team has sited Mysterious Footprints of mythical beast 'Yeti' measuring 32x15 inches close to Makalu Base Camp on 09 April 2019. This elusive snowman has only been sighted at Makalu-Barun National Park in the past. pic.twitter.com/AMD4MYIgV7 — ADG PI - INDIAN ARMY (@adgpi) April 29, 2019 Since time immemorial, people have been debating about the existence of the Yeti, a creature that resembles an ape and is found in various folklores and mythological stories. According to some people, the Yeti apparently live in the Himalayas and is quite skilled at hiding its whereabouts and existence. As the never-ending debates continue to trigger people's imagination and perception about the Yeti, the Army has said that they have "photographed and handed over to subject matter experts" the "evidence" for scientific evaluation. According to the Times Of India, the Indian Army held on to the "photographic evidence" about the Abominable Snowman for nearly 10 days, but then decided that they matched the earlier theories. "So, we thought it prudent (to go public) to excite scientific temper and rekindle the interest." Anyway, people on Twitter are not convinced with the Indian Army's claim and they expressed their disapproval in the most hilarious (yet logical) way possible. "Mitroon..ye 'Yeti' pichle 60 saal mein dikha tha kya, main puchta hoon dikha tha kya? Nahin dikha tha na. Aaj 'Yeti' ko humlog dekh rahe hai kyunki Dilli mein majboot sarkar hai. Congress ki sarkar jo kaam 60 saalon mein nahin kar saki, wo humne 60 mahine mein kar dikhaya" pic.twitter.com/nBZYCaCFrn — IRONY MAN (@karanku100) April 30, 2019 This is deeply, deeply embarrassing: whoever in the Indian Army's PR has circulated this is disgracing the institution, and India, in the world's eyes. https://t.co/f11OvolnUb — Praveen Swami (@praveenswami) April 30, 2019 With all due respect to everyone, what we call Yeti is with all probability either the Himalayan Brown Bear or Tibetean Blue Bear. Both are endangered, can grow over 7 feet and are bipedal.

Just look at those pics for heaven's sake. That's not a bipedal. Couldn't you guys call a single animal expert before posting this ? Unless you are claiming your yeti walks on a single foot and travels by jumping. — Anusuya (@_IC1101_) April 29, 2019 Can there possibly be a simpler explanation? pic.twitter.com/fqIuV0Q9Ri — Siddharth Singh (@siddharth3) April 29, 2019 The result of reading to much Tintin in one's childhood — Sanjeev Sanyal (@sanjeevsanyal) April 29, 2019 This is Indian Army's official account.

  4. Voting is not only a fundamental right, but also a responsibility of every citizen of India.

So guys, what's stopping you? In the ongoing elections, go and exercise your right because, like I said earlier, that blue ink on your index finger decides the fate of the country.
  5. Kunal Kamra, over the years, has gathered a good amount of fan following, with his edgy political stand-ups and his famous podcast 'Shut up ya Kunal'. The comedian has an authentic style that delivers content in the best satirical way possible, leaving the audience in splits of laughter. Recently, the comedian has gone on a spree of criticising PM Modi and how he shouldn't come back in to power and it's hilarious to say the least. We all eventually become who we hate the most... Art by @maseeh_ur_rahmaan A post shared by Kunal Kamra (@kuna_kamra) on Mar 26, 2019 at 1:05pm PDT Kunal has trolled the PM earlier too with various hilarious posts on his Twitter account. Main fakeer hoon Main chaiwala hoon Main Maa Ganga ka beta hoon Main majdoor hoon Main Swayam Sevak hoon Main chowkidar hoon... Haan par aap Pradhan Mantri bhi ho kabhi uska kaam bhi kar liya karo — Kunal Kamra (@kunalkamra88) 18 March 2019 Yeh chowkidar wala idea dekh ke toh BJP ki marketing se bhi bharosa uth gaya hai... — Kunal Kamra (@kunalkamra88) 19 March 2019 A month ago, Mumbai-based Kamra dropped a video suggesting that industrialists like Mukesh Ambani and Ratan Tata replace political figures like Narendra Modi. While the video got hysterical laughs, there was an important point he made- that people in UP still don't use toilets. The video did really well, getting about 7 million views. © Instagram Recently, a day before the first phase of polling Kamra posted a Tweet, holding a placard which said 'Don't vote for Modi'. He got hate-filled responses out of it, but surely enough the hilarity of it got enough attention, especially when he morphed an image of himself in one of the scenes in 'Game of Thrones', where Bran is supposedly staring at Kamra holding the placard which says 'don't vote for Modi'. Well, winter is certainly coming for the country too, or so Kamra believes and he took his opinion on Modi's campaign beyond the wall this time. Take a look! Don't vote for modi — Kunal Kamra (@kunalkamra88) 11 April 2019 *Haters will say these are Photoshopped* pic.twitter.com/VtAg0i8hH1 — Kunal Kamra (@kunalkamra88) 15 April 2019 Obviously, his Twitter handle was bombarded with both Modi lovers and haters alike. Well, we love you ð Kunal Kamra immensely & promise never to Cast our Vote for MODI! I have already made my choice & have one of my own personal favourite to share with you.

"I thought why are we hiding behind words like inclusivity and secularism, why leave anything to people's imagination" he said in an interview with ToI. Well, whether or not people vote for Modi is besides the point. What's absolutely funny and on-point is that Kamra's 'Don't vote for Modi' has finally reached 'Game Of Thrones' as well.
  6. The entire country is wrapped up in the hubbub around the 2019 General Elections in India, with the first timers thrumming with excitement to cast their first vote and become a part of history books for the future Indian Prime Minister's election. Yet, the masses are still busy focusing their attention to the biggest influencers they look up to on a regular basis in order to decide whether stepping out and voting would really make much of a difference as is being let on. © Twitter We are talking about the majority of Indian population's reliance on Bollywood stars for inspiration and motivation to get things done in life. However, as you might have already guessed from the headline of this story, there are a few beloved Bollywood stars who will not play their part in the General Elections this year since they are not eligible to vote, and here's why. Akshay Kumar © Instagram Akshay Kumar was born in Amritsar and regardless of all his overt show of patriotism, he will not be casting his vote because he holds a Canadian passport. Alia Bhatt © Instagram One of India's current favourites, Alia too shall not be casting her vote this election because Alia holds a British passport. You may recall that Alia's mother, Soni Razdan is also a British citizen. Deepika Padukone © Instagram Versatile actor Deepika too cannot vote in India. Having been born in Copenhagen, in Denmark, she holds a Danish passport and is therefore not eligible to vote in India. Katrina Kaif © Instagram Another Bollywood favourite, Katrina may be loved by thousands of Indians, but she is still an English citizen and has a UK passport. Imran Khan © Instagram Regardless of his short Bollywood stint, Aamir's nephew Imran is very much an active part of Bollywood. Since he holds an American passport, Imran cannot vote in the elections held in India. Jacqueline Fernandez © Instagram The 'Race 3' actress isn't Indian. She was born in Bahrain, and while her father is Sri Lankan, her mother is of Malaysian descent. Sunny Leone © Instagram Born Karenjit Kaur, with her roots in India, the actress can still not vote in India because she holds a Canadian passport.
  7. Jammu voted yesterday, in its first phase of the Lok Sabha elections and while it all went smoothly, there was more to casting votes in that space. There was unity and love amidst people while the elections were on and we know this because an 83-year-old woman by the name of Satya Devi came to cast her vote and the CRPF soldiers walked quietly with her, holding her hand while she was on her way to the ballots. As the elderly woman was preparing to step on the ramp, the CRPF jawan told her 'dheere dheere aaiye', making it a remarkably endearing moment in the history of Jammy casting votes. Watch the video here: CRPF women personnel help an elderly lady to enter the polling booth. Gandhinagar, Jammu. "Dheer Dheere aaiye," the soldier adds. @crpfindia pic.twitter.com/zn9rgn7Q9z — Pooja Shali (@PoojaShali) 11 April 2019 Satya Devi also held up an inked finger post voting. © Indiatimes Soon after this video made its way through Twitter, people sent their love and reactions, while praising CRPF. ð@crpfindia ð — ARUN (@ManhasArun) 11 April 2019 Salute — NikhilSharma Ranyal (@NikhilS43216872) 11 April 2019 माता à¤à¥ à¤à¤¼à¤à¥à¤¬à¥ à¤à¥ सलाम। ð®ð³ð — INDIAN ð®ð³ Vikrant Singh (@_VikrantSingh) 11 April 2019 This should inspire everyone to vote! — Mr Certitude (@Swapzz) 11 April 2019 This is the true spirit of India !!!

J&K has 6 Lok Sabha seats but only Jammu and Baramulla elected members to the lower house of parliament yesterday.
  8. 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.

  10. Winger Gareth Bale was making a name for himself as somewhat of a bench warmer in the recent weeks as his club, Real Madrid had been undergoing one of the worst stints in the history of their existence. The players looked unhappy, the manager looked frustrated and the disappointed fans were on the verge of a riot when last night, in a do-or-die kind of a situation for Los Blancos, the Amsterdamsche Football Club Ajax (AFC Ajax) handed them a cruel 4-1 defeat, making them lose 3-5 on aggregate, and knocking them out of the Champions League at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium, the home to Real Madrid players. Things particularly went out of hand for Bale who, in what has become more of a trend lately, started the game sitting on the substitution bench. However, the Welsh did lace up his boots and entered the field within 30 mins of play time as Lucas Vazquez went down with an injury. Not good for Bale #waleswatch pic.twitter.com/Wz9J0PqO4D — James Holt ð´ó §ó ¢ó ·ó ¬ó ³ó ¿ (@james_scfc88) March 5, 2019 Bale's average performance, which also included a shot at the post (but no goals), failed to impress the people of Madrid who voted him as the worst Real Madrid player during last night's heartbreaking defeat. According to the Spanish publication, Marca, who put to vote the performance of the 14 Los Blancos superstars, Bale received a total of 1,100+ Down Votes while only being able to garner 199 Up Votes. On the other hand, the current Ballon d'Or holder Luca Modric was voted the best Real Madrid player. Courtois, Nacho (Red Card) and Kroos ranked 11th, 12th and 13th worst just ahead of the Wales international. The collective heat towards the winger follows a rant by Bale's personal agent Jonathan Barnett. "This generation of Real fans will be talking about Gareth's goals for years to come. Frankly, they should be ashamed of themselves... Gareth deserves the greatest of respect. The way the Real fans have treated Gareth is nothing short of a disgrace,” expressed Barnett in a recent interview with Sky. “In the six years he has been in Spain, he has won everything. He's one of the best players in the world. Those fans should be kissing his feet."

  11. Yes, the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) asked the Indian fans to vote for Mahendra Singh Dhoni to make an appearance in the show's iconic pay-per-view, the Royal Rumble. The Rumble is one of the most watched and loved events of WWE's calendar year and is known for bringing in the 'who's who' of the business to the organisation or help the legends of the show that were out due to injuries or bad run with the crowd, make a comeback. However, this year, WWE tried to make something a lot bigger happen, especially for the millions and MILLIONS ('The Rock' reference) of their Indian fans, by putting up a vote to call Indian cricket team's MS Dhoni to make a Royal Rumble appearance this year. - Countdown to 1ï¸â£0ï¸â£ - Cue the music ð¶ - Surprise entry to the rumble... @msdhoni India, do you want to see our very own Mahi enter the #RoyalRumble match this Monday? — WWE (@WWEIndia) January 23, 2019 This innovative social media stunt follows a tweet uploaded by WWE superstar Paul Heyman who is the manager and spokesperson for wrestler, Brock Lesnar. The viral tweet was a 'not so subtle' jab at Cricket World Cup by Paul Heyman who jokingly asked for royalties as the former paraphrased his tagline 'Eat, Sleep, Conquer, Repeat' which he uses to promote Lesnar. My most (in)sincere compliments to @cricketworldcup for promoting the amazing @msdhoni by paraphrasing my mantra for @WWE #UniversalChampion @BrockLesnar #EatSleepConquerRepeat. Our royalties may be paid in cash, check, stock or cryptocurrency. https://t.co/sGtIALzso1 — Paul Heyman (@HeymanHustle) January 18, 2019 Obviously, this was an attempt to promote the 2019 Royal Rumble in India which took place on Sunday evening and WWE seems to have struck the right chord with the Indian audience who not only voted but also replied with some hilarious tweets: @msdhoni is more of a bigger name than any wwe wrestler...

  12. Five years ago, Jose Mourinho reportedly broke into tears when he learnt that David Moyes was appointed as the successor to Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United. Not known for being so emotional, Mourinho had wanted this job for years and following his fallout with Real Madrid in 2013, the Portuguese was expected by many to take the charge at hallowed Old Trafford. But, it wasn't meant to be, at least not at that time. Missing out on the dream job, the master tactician had to contend with his second innings at Chelsea which lasted for two years. During that period, United's struggle to find a worthy successor to Sir Alex saw the likes of Moyes, Ryan Giggs (interim player-manager) and Louis van Gaal make brief appearances in the dug-out. It was in 2016 that Mourinho got his wish as United - struggling to match their rivals - placed their faith in the Portuguese. With many allowing him some time to get into the groove at United, Mourinho did fairly well in his debut season, winning three trophies - FA Community Shield, EFL Cup and Europa League. But, in the years that followed, Mourinho has neither been productive nor impressive. The United manager ended last season, his second year in charge at Old Trafford, empty-handed before taking in a disappointing summer transfer window and a testing start to his third year at the helm. © Reuters The ongoing season saw the Red Devils lose two of their opening three league games for the first time in 26 years, including a 3-0 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur - also the heaviest home defeat in Mourinho's career. The fact that United are currently languishing at the 10th spot with just four wins in their first nine EPL games and, more recently, losing 0-1 to Juventus in the UEFA Champions League group game at home, sums up the plight of Mourinho. But, the Portuguese's problems don't end at the lack of trophies. The United owners and fans expected Mourinho to take his time to get going and bring the lost glory at the Manchester club. However, even if you give the benefit of doubt to the Portuguese regarding the lack of silverware, you just can't overlook the fact that United have shed their attacking style of play in favour of a more defensive and reserved approach. To the sheer disbelief of former United players and fans, Mourinho has been seen deploying different tactics in a bid to turn their misfortunes. It's like, he is stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea. He wants United to play defensively and, in the process, expects his side to snatch a 1-0 win. But, the fact that he knows the fans and United stars will not accept that, further makes his style a bit dodgy and unconvincing - the current state of United's sordid campaign. © Reuters The Ferguson's United dominated the Premier League on the back of their attacking display. It was the attacking intent to score goals while standing firm in defence that allowed Ferguson's men to notch up one silverware after another. Even when they lost, the fans and pundits were content with the way they played. But, Mourinho's United is not like that, something that further dents Mourinho's reputation at Old Trafford. What makes Mourinho's situation even more difficult, is the fact that while United seem to be going backwards, their rivals have taken huge strides to establish themselves. On one hand, where United have lost their presence in the competition, the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool are scaling new heights. Even Chelsea, for that matter, have shown great signs of improvement in such a short time under new manager Maurizio Sarri. So, why after three years, United are still waiting for Mourinho to find a winning formula? - a question that continues to echo at Old Trafford. © Reuters The frustration of United fans has reached an all-time high which probably explains why they were so keen to turn up for 'The Sportsman's Manchester Referendum' - ahead of their Champions League loss against Juventus. The ballot saw thousands of United supporters casting their vote (online and in person) on Mourinho's future at Old Trafford. And, the results weren't surprising at all. Out of over 15,000 votes, 55 per cent United supporters supported the axing of Mourinho as manager. We're three seasons into Mourinho's reign now. The Man Utd management has already spent a lot of money on players. But, the results are nowhere to be seen. The time is clearly running out for the Portuguese, especially with the Glazer family eyeing former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane as a potential replacement. And, now with the fans expressing their displeasure, it's certain that Mourinho's head will roll, the question is only 'when'.
